Zionist Israel an International Pariah

Gaza has become a slaughter zone for the eradication of Palestinians with the most advanced military technology that Israel posses. In comparison the blaming of Hamas for this latest barrage of rockets, fails to recognize any proposition in the mutual savagery. Depending on one’s view just who is the unlawful belligerent, sympathy and condemnation follows. This eternal struggle will never end peacefully. Debating international law, dissecting historic claims, strategizing military options, analyzing diplomatic intentions, and especially honoring superior doctrine among conflicting religious beliefs is a formula that offers no solutions. Yet, Israel is wedded to an expansionist political objective. Extending settlements prevent any permanent settlement agreement.

 

Gaza is an Engineered Flashpoint for WW3

Zionist Terror in Gaza

Free Gaza and Free the World

With the follow blown invasion of Gaza, the IDF proves once again that annihilation and ethnic cleansing is the cornerstone of Israeli imperium. For a perspective on the Gaza campaign that you will not hear in the controlled Zionist media, view Gaza is an Engineered Flashpoint for WW3 video. Then if you have the courage to face the truth, Zionist Terror in Gaza – Free Gaza and Free the World, YouTube is a must watch.The notion that the government of Israel has some special right to be an apartheid state, only for Zionists, is the source of perpetual war. Strip away the heretical religious entitlements that only serves to rationalize the bogus legitimacy of a rogue regime, and what you have left is an aggressor tribe of Khazarian outlaws, who allege to be Jewish when it is politically expedient. This charade keeps the naive and uninformed Christian-Zionists pouring out their support for the high cost of claiming: CHOSEN.

No wonder that AIPAC Zionists are in control of American Middle East foreign policy, which is destroying the region for the betterment of Israeli zealotry. Even if you view Palestinians as a conquered people, confined to a leper colony by walls and checkpoints, how can any student of world politics conclude that this experiment of incremental death camps will ever bring peaceful co-existence?

Are Zionists the only people who have a right for self-defense? The iron dome that knocks down, the projectiles based on the Chinese “Weishi-2″ or WS-2 rockets is effective in stopping these primitive missiles. “The al-Qassam brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, boasts on its website that it can make its own version of the M-302 – named the R-160 after one of its leaders, Abdel Rantisi, who was killed last decade.” Contrast these weapons withOperation Samson: Israel’s Deployment of Nuclear Missiles on Subs from Germany.

The essay, USrael and Armageddon, references the Samson Option and cites Colonel Warner D. “Rocky” Farr, from THE THIRD TEMPLE’S HOLY OF HOLIES: ISRAEL’S NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

“Israel is a nation with a state religion, but its top leaders are not religious Jews. The intricacies of Jewish religious politics and rabbinical law do affect their politics and decision processes. In Jewish law, there are two types of war, one obligatory and mandatory (milkhemet mitzvah) and the one authorized but optional (milkhemet reshut). The labeling of Prime Minister Begin’s “Peace for Galilee” operation as a milchemet brera (“war of choice”) was one of the factors causing it to lose support. Interpretation of Jewish law concerning nuclear weapons does not permit their use for mutual assured destruction. However, it does allow possession and threatening their use, even if actual use is not justifiable under the law. Interpretations of the law allow tactical use on the battlefield, but only after warning the enemy and attempting to make peace. How much these intricacies affect Israeli nuclear strategy decisions is unknown.”

The video, Why Israel Is A Threat To World Peace by Brother Nathanael indentifies the actual threat that Israel posses to the rest of the planet. However, in Gaza the potential becomes the immediate. Based upon the long record of Israeli atrocities, would any prudent person ignore the expected predictability that Zionist warmongers would use any weapon at their disposal to retain their regional power? Like the treasonous American politicians, the Israeli Knesset and Cabinet oversee tyrannical and despotic policies, which push the world to the brink of Armageddon.
Tanya Reinhart makes the argument that The Hamas Government Should be Recognized.

“The U.S. and Europe decided, despite Israel’s opposition, to permit the Palestinian people to hold democratic elections.

In a just and well-ordered world, it would be unthinkable for a government that was elected in this way to be disqualified because Israel does not like the choice of the electorate in question. But in a world in which the U.S. rules, might is right, and might can define democracy as it chooses. Thus, it was announced that the outcome of the Palestinian elections would not be recognized until the three “mantras” were fulfilled: Hamas must renounce terror, honor previous accords, and recognize the State of Israel. Meanwhile the Palestinian people would be punished and starved through an economic boycott, in the hope that this will lead to the collapse of the elected government.”

Nonetheless, in a Haaretz editorial, Israel’s refusal to deal with the Fatah-Hamas coalition is both puzzling and damaging, places blame where it is warranted.

“The Palestinian government to be formed is the result of the reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah and reflects Hamas’ recognition of the Palestinian Authority, which was born of the Oslo Agreements that Hamas had opposed with all its might. This reconciliation is the result of heavy Arab pressure, is supported by all the Arab states and by most of the Palestinian public, and has the backing of several European leaders. Israel, which invested great effort in foiling the diplomatic negotiations, is now citing the Palestinian reconciliation as a decisive reason for freezing the talks, as if before the reconciliation it was rushing to continue the process. Israel’s refusal to recognize this government is liable to portray it once again as the party refusing to give the diplomatic channel a chance.”

Israel is a social outcast for much the same reason that the United States government has become a threat to its own people. Alan Hart back in 2011 writes in the article, Could pariah status spell the end for Zionism?

“A short and fairly accurate description of the ideology Netanyahu was raised on is something like this. “The world will always hate Jews. Zionism must therefore do whatever is necessary to build and secure Israel as a refuge of last resort for Jews everywhere. And if that means telling the world to go to hell, so be it.” (That’s actually why David Ben-Gurion, Moshe Dayan and others insisted that Israel should possess nuclear weapons – to have the reinforced ability to tell the world, not just the Arabs, to go to hell if necessary).”

Mr. Hart end the essay with a profound question for all Israelis.

“Is it possible that a global perception of them as citizens of a pariah state and the possibility of real sanctions will alarm enough Israeli Jews to the point where they will take to the streets in significant numbers to demand that their leaders be serious about peace on terms virtually all Palestinians and most other Arabs and Muslims everywhere could accept?”

Watch the compelling interview video, Rabbi Jew says Zionist Israeli government and their regime must be totally eliminated, for an honest answer. When orthodox Jews admit the sacrilege of the pretenders that rule the state of Israel, you find hope that the conscience of honest Jewry will stand up and oppose a Zionist government that defies YHWH. Fast forward to the recent pronouncement from the Eidah Chareidis Rabbinical Court of Jerusalem Condemns Murder of Palestinian Boy, as Abbas urges UN to investigate alleged revenge killing of Arab boy by Jewish extremists.

“With pain and shock, the chief rabbi and the members of the rabbinical court heard about the heinous and foolish crime, the murder of a Palestinian boy here in Jerusalem, by people of Jewish descent. To make matters worse, according to current reports, the murder was committed by Jews in religious dress, may G-d spare us. It is understood and obvious to every Jew and every keeper of the Torah and its commandments that such an act is forbidden by the Torah, and Heaven forbid that a Jew should spill blood. And during our bitter exile, we have been commanded by the holy Torah and our Sages, and by our most recent rabbinic leaders, to bear the yoke of exile, not to provoke the other nations, Heaven forbid, and to wait for the complete redemption by the messiah, not by human intervention. All the more so when this act could lead to unknown consequences, Heaven forbid.”

When will the Israeli government declare its own condemnation, or will the deadly air raids on defenseless Gaza homes become its routine response for perfecting the murder of countless Palestinians noncombatants? As bombs fall on Gaza, take action: Endorse the academic and cultural boycott of Israel.

Sameer Bhat, in the Kashmir Reader, artfully expresses the proper synopsis, Condemn Zionists, not Jews. “Please resist linking Zionism (the terrible ideology practiced by the state of Israel) with Judaism. What Israel is doing in Palestine is a direct outcome of its occupational policies because of Zionism, a despicable colonialist and racist idea that denies rights to Palestinians and advocates their dispossession and expulsion. It is from the pot of Zionist hubble-bubble, filled with the blood of innocents, that Israel draws its strength from. We must criticize and denounce this fascist thought. And yes, anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism.”

Bilderberg: Where Big Business and Big Government Plot Globalism

By:  Alex Newman

Over the weekend at the Bilderberg summit in the Danish capital, dozens of the world’s most important Big Business and mega-bank CEOs were meeting behind closed doors (and massive amounts of taxpayer-funded security) with a collection of powerful Big Government leaders. High-level operatives for Big Green, Big Media, Big Oil, Big Espionage, Big Banks, Big War, Big Internet, Big Foundations, Big Communism, Big Data, and most of the other important “Bigs” were represented, too. All of the attendees share at least one common element though: a radical devotion to globalism.

In public, Bilderberg summit organizers seek to portray the gathering as a mere off-the-record discussion forum. A press release from Bilderberg released ahead of this year’s summit, for example, claimed the purpose was merely “to foster dialogue between Europe and North America.” How a secrecy-obsessed, paranoid, closed-off meeting would foster any sort of “dialogue” between hundreds of millions of people on opposite sides of the Atlantic was not clear. What role a member of the Communist Party of China’s Central Committee would play in such dialogue also was not explained.

Still, “nothing to see here,” Bilderberg implausibly insists. “There is no desired outcome, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued,” the official May 26 statement also claimed. Numerous attendees, though, have suggested and even openly admitted in public statements over the years that much more than a mere “private talk” is in fact going on at the controversial summit.

For example, in 2010, former NATO boss and two-time Bilderberg attendee Willy Claes said in a radio interview that reports of speeches given at the summit are compiled. “The participants are then obviously considered to use this report in setting their policies in the environments in which they affect,” Claes added, which analysts said was essentially an admission that Bilderberg attendees are secretly plotting your future behind closed doors.

The year before Claes’ admission, then-Bilderberg chairman Etienne Davignon — a former European Union commissar and current Belgian minister of state — told the online EUobserver that the summits “helped create” the controversial euro currency imposed on 17 formerly sovereign European nations. Much evidence also suggests that the summits played a major role in foisting the EU super-state on the peoples of Europe against their will — a process that continues despite the lack of public support.

More recently, despite protestations to the contrary, a Bilderberg attendee and the leader of the Socialist International-aligned Dutch Labor Party admitted on camera this year that he was at the summit in his official capacity as parliamentary leader. Asked if he was there in an informal capacity, he responded: “Well, I’m formal, because being a politician, you’re 24/7, so there’s no way of exiting my role.” The Bilderberg website says, “Participants take part in the conference as individuals in their own right,” but the comments by the Dutch lawmaker and “sustainability” zealot Diederik Samsom suggest otherwise.

More than 15 years ago, meanwhile, far-left Bilderberg attendee Will Hutton — a former British newspaper editor, rabid pro-EU extremist, and vehement opponent of American conservatism — also hinted at the influence of the gathering. “[Bilderberg] is one of the key meetings of the year,” he wrote in 1998. “The consensus established is the backdrop against which policy is made worldwide.” The admission could not get much clearer than that.

Aside from guiding policy, a great deal of anecdotal evidence suggests Bilderberg plays a major role in selecting the policymakers who will foist the schemes on an unsuspecting public. In 1991, for example, a virtually unknown governor from Arkansas attended. Shortly after that, he became President Clinton. Obama, too, went to Bilderberg before becoming president. This year, the little-known mayor of Atlanta was at the summit, sparking speculation about whether he was being groomed or vetted for higher office.

It is not just American politicians whose careers seem to get a major boost from attending the summits, either. Tony Blair, for example, attended Bilderberg as an opposition member of Parliament. He then became prime minister shortly afterwards. Numerous other British prime ministers have also attended. Other countries in Europe have faced similar occurrences, such as Bilderberg bigwig and Goldman Sachs operative Mario Monti being installed as the unelected prime minister of Italy in 2011.

At the European level — where voters and the peoples of Europe have virtually no say — the same phenomenon has been observed. In 2005, the state-funded BBC noted, “All the recent presidents of the European Commission attended Bilderberg meetings before they were appointed.” EU overlords, of course, are not elected. In 2009, meanwhile, former Belgian Prime Minister Herman Van Rompuy — a virtual nobody unknown throughout the bloc — was mysteriously installed as EU “president” days after attending the confab. He promptly announced that “global governance” was advancing.

Indeed, what unites the seemingly disparate globalists appears to be mainly their fanatical devotion to globalism — the transfer of political power away from nations and people to unaccountable supranational regimes. Based on their public statements, it appears that virtually every attendee at Bilderberg is and has been a proponent of global and regional governance rather than national independence.

In 2001, former British chancellor of the exchequer and Bilderberg bigwig Denis Healey even told the U.K. Guardian that it was a little “exaggerated, but not wholly unfair” to say that the outfit’s overall goal was to impose a global government on humanity. “Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn’t go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless,” he claimed. “So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.”

By “community,” globalists really mean government — after all, the European Union was a “community” before the full-blown super-state was openly announced. Today, after decades of brazenly deceiving the peoples of Europe, EU bosses hardly bother to conceal their intentions anymore, boldly announcing that a federal super-state is coming whether the public wants it or not. The UN, too, is increasingly resembling a global government.

Of course, more than a few prominent Bilderberg attendees over the decades have openly stated their goals, often referring to the sought-after planetary regime as the “New World Order.” Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, George Soros, and many other top globalists and Bilderberg operatives have used the term regularly in public. While Bilderberg claims people with “diverse” views are invited, there can be no question that such “diversity” does not include proponents of national independence and sovereignty.

On its official website, Bilderberg openly outlines the extreme globalist views of its attendees. “In the context of a globalized world, it is hard to think of any issue in either Europe or North America that could be tackled unilaterally,” it claims. Speaking to the BBC in 2005, former Bilderberg chair Davignon also noted that at the summit, “automatically around the table you have internationalists” — people who seek to further empower anti-sovereignty schemes ranging from United Nations outfits and the EU to the ongoing “trans-Atlantic integration” plot.

In the United States, conservatives are generally hostile to Big Government, while liberals are generally hostile to Big Business. When Big Business and Big Government join forces to benefit each other at public expense, the result is often tragic, as history has shown. On a global scale, though, the potential for disaster is far more serious — and that is the real threat represented by Bilderberg and its roster of globalist attendees.

Globalist Cabal Meets for Secretive Bilderberg Summit

A collection of around 150 of the most powerful and influential globalists is quietly converging on the Danish capital today for the annual Bilderberg summit this weekend to discuss your future. Despite the lack of attention from the mischaracterized “mainstream” press, the controversial meeting brings together much of the top echelon of the global establishment — bankers, royalty, military bosses, Internet titans, politicians, corporate chieftains, central bankers, academics, media bosses, intelligence officials, and more. Protesters and alternative media reporters are also descending on Copenhagen for the secretive confab.

While the shadowy gathering is off the record and rarely attracts much public scrutiny, Bilderberg attendees have in the past revealed that the self-appointed global elites make decisions there with far-reaching implications for humanity. From hatching the radical plot for a single currency in Europe to supercharging the careers of little-known politicians such as then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton willing to do their bidding, anecdotal evidence and even statements from insiders suggest that the annual meetings play a crucial role in mapping out the globalist agenda. One attendee recently told the German publication Cicero that the Bilderberg meeting was more important than the much more well-known Davos summit.

This year’s Bilderberg gathering — the 62nd so far — again brings together a virtual who’s who of establishment-minded powerbrokers or their minions, more than a few of whom have deeply controversial records. Among those attending this year: former Secretary of State Henry “New World Order” Kissinger; NATO boss Anders Fogh Rasmussen; former Treasury Secretary and co-chair of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations Robert Rubin; Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz; Google Chairman Eric Schmidt; Neocon extraordinaire and Goldman Sachs International Advisors Board Chairman Robert Zoellick; former CIA boss David Petraeus; IMF chief Christine Lagarde; and many more.

As in past years, there will undoubtedly be other top globalists in attendance who are not listed — preferring to remain anonymous, perhaps, due to concerns about the Logan Act, which could make some Americans in attendance into felons. Still, the publicly available list includes a prominent roster of U.S. so-called “neo-conservatives;” the globalist pseudo-conservatives who plagued the world with the unconstitutional Iraq war and “pre-emptive” war doctrines. Also on the list are CEOs of some of the world’s top corporations and mega-banks such as Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, TD Bank Group, the European Central Bank (ECB), and more.

However, mixed in with all the crony capitalists and their Western government lackeys are plenty of socialists and communists, too. Even the mass-murdering Communist regime ruling over mainland China will have operatives there. Chinese Communist Party Central Committee member He Liu, who leads the ruthless party’s “financial and economic affairs group office,” will be in attendance; as will a Chinese professor and banker with myriad ties to the dictatorship in Beijing. A Socialist Party Parliamentarian from Portugal, Inês de Medeiros, is on the list as well.

The establishment media — becoming increasingly discredited in the United States, where just one in five Americans express confidence in the institution — will also be well represented at the summit. As usual, for example, the globalist magazine The Economist will have Editor-in-chief John Micklethwait there. Chief economics commentator Martin Wolf with The Financial Times will be present as well. Other “mainstream” media figures include political editor-in-chief Tove Lifvendahl for one of Sweden’s top newspapers, senior columnist Cengiz Çandar with Al Monitor and Radika, Austrian newspaper Der Standard publisher Oscar Bronner, editor-in-chief Monica Maggioni with Italy’s Rainews24 and RAI TV, French paper Le Monde executive editor Natalie Nougayrède, and more. Whether any of those supposed “media professionals” will do their duty and inform the public on the gathering remains to be seen, but few expect to see Bilderberg covered in those outlets — much less the real agenda.

In the past, the meetings have not even been publicly acknowledged, with the increasingly unpopular establishment press usually ignoring or demonizing anyone who criticizes or even questions why global policymakers meet in secret behind a virtual army of taxpayer-funded security forces. Virtually none of the pseudo-journalists in attendance has informed their readers or audiences of the summit’s existence — much less what is discussed. More recently, though, thanks largely to the efforts of the alternative media, the Bilderberg has become slightly more transparent — although not much. At least now, the organizers release a partial list of attendees as well as the supposed “key topics for discussion.”

In a press release dated May 26, Bilderberg claimed that the major subjects on the agenda would include the alleged “economic recovery” and whether it is “sustainable,” shifts in technology and jobs, Ukraine, current events, the “new architecture of the Middle East,” and more. “Who will pay for the demographics?” is also listed as a discussion topic, along with “What [sic] next for Europe?” and “How special is the relationship in intelligence sharing?” The “future of democracy” and the “middle class trap” will supposedly be discussed, too, as well as China’s “political and economic outlook.” Multiple insiders and Bilderberg attendees have in the past suggested that the murderous regime in Beijing would help lead what they refer to as the “New World Order.”

“Does privacy exist?” is another one of the key topics, according to the release. The question is ironic considering the paranoid and secrecy-obsessed nature of the Bilderberg meeting, which treats non-establishment reporters and public scrutiny as pests to be avoided. The agenda topic is even more ironic in light of the role played by key Bilderberg attendees in attempting to shred every remaining vestige of your privacy via unlawful and immoral spying on citizens. Former National Security Agency (NSA) director and ex-commander of the U.S. Cyber Command Keith Alexander, for example, is among the “intelligence” bosses listed as attending the confab.

Of course, the NSA was exposed recently by a whistleblower for unconstitutionally vacuuming up information on hundreds of millions of Americans without a warrant. Another former NSA boss, Michael Hayden, also confessed publicly last month that the Obama administration has been murdering people around the world based solely on “metadata” gathered by the controversial agency. Also in attendance at this year’s summit will be U.K. “Secret Intelligence Service” boss John Sawers. Previous Bilderberg attendees such as Bill Gates, Obama, and Louis Gerstner, Jr. have also played a critical role in imposing Common Core and the accompanying espionage apparatus aimed at shredding your children’s privacy rights.

In a brief statement, the recently established official Bilderberg website offered some bland and almost certainly misleading comments about itself and its controversial meetings. “Founded in 1954, Bilderberg is an annual conference designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America,” it said in the press release. “Every year, between 120-150 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media are invited to take part in the conference. About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; approximately one third from politics and government and the rest from other fields.”

It then elaborates slightly on what Bilderberg wants the public to think about the nature of its gatherings. “The conference is a forum for informal discussions about major issues facing the world,” the press release claims. “The meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor of any other participant may be revealed. Thanks to the private nature of the conference, the participants are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions. As such, they can take time to listen, reflect and gather insights. There is no desired outcome, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.”

In other words, if Bilderberg’s official statement is to be believed — that would be rather foolish, considering many attendees’ long and dangerous track records of deception — the gathering is little more than an opportunity to freely discuss important issues. However, even recently, a top Bilderberg operative, Etienne Davignon — a former EU commissar and current Belgian minister of state — hinted at the summit’s influence when he told the EU Observer that the summits played a major role in foisting the euro on the formerly sovereign nations of Europe. Davignon will be in attendance again this year, the public list shows.

The New American will be on the ground in Copenhagen reporting on the Bilderberg summit. A request for interviews and comments sent to the confab’s official press e-mail were not answered by publication time.

Pope Tours Jerusalem Shrines Before Honoring Zionist Leader

Pope Francis entered the most contested piece of territory in the Holy Land today, delivering an impassioned appeal to “work together for justice and peace.”

The pontiff began the second day of his visit to the West Bank and Israel by visiting a hilltop compound in Jerusalem’s Old City that houses Islam’s third-holiest site and is revered by Jews as the site of their biblical temple.

Francis removed his shoes, in the Muslim tradition, to enter the gold-capped Dome of the Rock on the site known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif and to Jews as Temple Mount. The centrality of the site, captured by Israel in 1967, to both Judaism and Islam puts it at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“From this holy place I make a heartfelt plea to all people and to all communities who look to Abraham: May we respect and love one another as brothers and sisters!,” he said after leaving the Dome of the Rock to address Muslim clergy, according to a transcript on the Vatican website.

“May we work together for justice and peace! Salaam!” he said, using the Arabic word for peace.

At the foot of the compound, Francis placed a note in a crevice of the Western Wall, a remnant of the biblical Jewish temple, as is the Jewish custom. The note contained the text of the “Our Father” prayer, written in his native Spanish, the Vatican said.

‘Shamed’

From the Old City, the papal entourage proceeded to Mount Herzl, where Francis placed a wreath at the grave of Zionist leader Theodor Herzl and made an unscheduled stop at a memorial to Israeli victims of terrorism.

At the nearby Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial, he lit a flame at the shrine honoring 6 million Jews who perished during the Holocaust.

“Here we are, Lord, shamed by what man, created in your own image and likeness, was capable of doing,” Francis said at a ceremony attended by President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The pontiff began his two-day visit to the West Bank and Israel yesterday with a short helicopter ride from the Jordanian capital of Amman to Bethlehem, where he celebrated Mass in Manger Square. In a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Francis called for “the state of Palestine” to be fully established and lamented the collapse of U.S.-mediated peace talks last month.

‘Find the Courage’

“The time has come to put an end to this situation, which has become increasingly unacceptable,” Francis said yesterday upon arriving in the West Bank city, revered as the birthplace of Jesus. “The time has come for everyone to find the courage to be generous and creative in the service of the common good.”

The pope showed further support for the Palestinian cause with an unscripted stop at the concrete wall dividing Bethlehem and Jerusalem, part of the West Bank barrier Israel says it built to keep out attackers and which Palestinians say encroach on territory they want for a future state. He leaned his head against a section of the barrier, which had “Free Palestine” and “Apartheid Wall” spray-painted on it and was located near an Israeli military watchtower.

The pontiff invited Abbas and Israeli President Shimon Peres to jointly visit the Vatican and pray for peace. Both accepted.

Ending the day in Jerusalem’s Old City, Francis met at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre with Orthodox Christian leader Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I. Their encounter marked the 50th anniversary of the 1964 meeting between the leaders of the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches, which led to a mending of the split that had taken place more than nine centuries earlier.

Francis is the third pontiff to visit Israel since the Vatican established diplomatic ties with the Jewish state in 1993.

Europe Voted Against Austerity

“New Europe” media has anticipated the growth of the far right in Europe as a result of the austerity policies imposed by the Germany driven ECB, EC and Eurogroup.

Far right Eurosceptics are the third political conglomerate in the European Parliament, regardless of the way the election results are interpreted, and the soonest the Brussels centers of power digest it, the better.

How the various political groups in the Parliament will be formed, is irrelevant. What is important is to count how many members of the newly elected Parliament are in favor of the austerity policy and how many are against it.

Indeed, in a very summary approach to the core question of today’s Europe, “austerity or growth” the reply, according to the election results is for “growth” with the European People’s Party remaining in the second position sustaining financial discipline and austerity.

The first winner of this election are clearly the anti-austerity forces, right left and center and this, if correctly interpreted and understood, will bring the change of policy we need giving end to the crisis and the stone years of Europe.

The defeat of the European austerity signifies the end of the leading political role of EPP despite it formally being the first political group in the new Parliament. Indeed, in our political civilization, policies prevail over labels.

This means that the selection of the EPP candidate in the position of the President of the European Commission should be ruled out as should the election of any other among the official, all “systemic” (that is pro-austerity), candidates of the other parties. That experiment is over unless, despite the clear election message, Europe continues in the orbit of misery and austerity, which will soon become free-fall.

We need a strong Europe, with new policies and the United Kingdom in it and part of the Euro. Yes part of the Euro even if in means giving to the city of London whatever concessions they ask. Even by moving the ECB to London, why not.

Britain and France liberated Europe from the Nazi occupation seventy years ago and Britain with France must work together to get it back in orbit.

Development, the way it is has been designed so far, is based on stabilizing systemic banks as the overlords of the European economy and achieve growth only through the big business and financial conglomerates. In this way small European enterprises, which constitute the backbone of our society and the reservoir of our middle class will be further marginalized. This will be the final stage of European catastrophe.

We need to give Europeans jobs and hopes. We must lower taxes and get into a controlled 5% to 7% inflation by printing money and giving loans to small companies. Let’s get the courage to print money. Why can the Fed do it and indeed it does and the ECB cannot?

Finally we must liberate European businesses from the many restrictive labour laws maintaining the minimum necessary. Labor laws as they are designed suffocate small companies but are silently and conveniently violated by large conglomerates many of which are union free.

To recapitulate, if we do not see the obvious, that Europeans in their great majority have voted against austerity, we are far from the European reality.

The conservatives/Christian Democrats of the European People’s Parties (EPP) came out in the lead in this weekend’s European Parliament elections. Whether the EPP’s lead candidate for the Presidency of the EU Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, will actually win the office is not yet clear. The selection is formally made by the EU Council of governments, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron may insist on a different President. Even though Juncker is from their European conservative party.

In the following, I look at some of the national results, based on the results as of this writing as reported by, among others, European Parliament results BBC News, which as of this writing shows 740 of the 751 EP seats determined. The EU’s website’s European elections 2014 page has background information on the functioning of the EP. The final, official accounts may vary somewhat from what I’m using here.

The strong showing of the far right nationalists in Britain and France is certainly notable. But it’s hard to say how much of that vote represents a protest by pro-Europe voters who are upset with austerity policies is hard to say at this point. I suspect it’s small. Because those parties are blatantly nationalistic and xenophobic.

The critical economic issue at stake right now is the continuance of Merkel’s brutal and destructive austerity policies. The conservatives/Christian Democrats, the Social Democrats and the liberals are generally committed to austerity, perhaps better described as austericide. The Greens, who are seated to the right of the Social Democrats in the German and Austrian parliaments, are pro-Europe and anti-austerity. So are the parties associated with the European Left Party, mostly notably right now SYRIZA in Greece.

So the results of the EP election is to leave pro-Europe/pro-austerity policies with a clear majority. It’s worth noting that with the Social Democratic base in particular, party loyalty probably won out over opposition to austerity in some non-trivial amounts. And the Social Democratic campaign did stress the need for jobs and public investment, though without opposing austerity and without getting out of the general realm of neoliberal cliches, in which “education” and “public investment” are largely empty slogans.

But the Greens and the Left did offer clear criticism of austerity policies while maintaining a definite pro-Europe position. So, on the whole, only the Green and Left votes can be counted as clearly pro-Europe/anti-austerity votes. The Five Start Movement in Italy should probably also be regarded as a pro-Europe/anti-austerity vote.

Germany: The good news here is that Merkel’s conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) got the fewest votes it ever has in a European Parliamentary election; the bad news is that the CDU still got the highest vote percentage. A Público headline linked below calls it a “Pyrrhic victory.” But out of 96 European Parliament seats, the CDU won 34, the Social Democrats (SPD) 26; since the SPD supports Merkel’s Herbert Hoover/Heinrich Brüning austerity economics, that is more than a three-fifths vote for the Hoover/Brüning policies that are wrecking the eurozone and the possible the EU as well. The SPD improved their voting percentage, which their current leadership is virtually certain to take as a sign of approval for their participation in the German government as the junior coalition partner to the CDU – along with their endorsement of Hoover/Brüning austerity policies.

The Free Democratic Party (FDP), the liberal party (which means hardline “free market” in Europe) won four seats, still maintaining themselves (barely) as a viable electoral alternative. Their four seats would have to be counted as pro-austerity, as well, making a two-thirds majority for pro-Europe/pro-austerity policies.

The Greens got 12 seats, the Left Party seven. Both parties were pro-Europe and critical of Merkel’s austerity policies, making only 20% of the seats pro-Europe and anti-austerity. The Left Party still can’t seem to get traction, even with the stagnation of wages in Germany. The Greens are nominally more conservative than the SPD – they are seated to the right of the SPD in the national Bundestag – but on the urgent European policy issue of Merkel’s austertiy program, the SPD supports it and the Greens and the Left oppose it.

The nationalist, far-right Alternativ für Deutschland (AfD) also won seven seats, with a somewhat lower popular vote than the Left Party. This will produce no small amount of hand-wringing in the German media, justifiable as far as it goes. It’s not clear to me to what extent voters attracted by the AfD’s anti-EU stance could be won over by parties to the left of the CDU. Not a lot, I’m guessing, because both the Greens and the Left Party took a distinctly critical but pro-EU position in this election, the Left Party more so. The AfD is basically pulling votes from nationalist righwingers for whom the CDU is rightwing enough.

France: The results of two years with a Socialist majority in Parliament and a Socialist President, François Hollande, are downright depressing. Maybe a party whose voting base is composed of workers and union members was ill-advised to adopt Hoover/Brüning austerity policies and a foreign policy of jumping into any war in Africa or the Middle East that they can find.

Hollande’s Socialists came in third, with 13 seats out of a total 71. Sarkozy’s conservative UMP came in second with 20 seats. And the far-right National Front (FN) party of Marine Le Pen came in first, with 24% of the vote and 24 seats. The liberals took seven seats and the Greens six, with the Left grouping taking four seats. The combined seats of Socialists, conservatives and liberals represent less than a majority for pro-Europe/pro-austerity parties; the FN’s 24 seats would be anti-Europe and I assume in practice pro-austerity. With the Greens and the Left counting as pro-Europe/anti-austerity, that sentiment pulled a smaller percentage in France than in Germany.

Austria: With 18 MEP (Member of European Parliament) seats, the Christian Democratic Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) won five seats, the Social Democrats (SPÖ) also five with a second-place vote percentage, followed by the anti-Europe rightwing Freedom Party (FPÖ) with the Greens winning three seats on a 14% vote, and the protest party Neos polling wining 8% of the vote.

Cyprus: With six seats at stake, the conservatives, the Left and the Social Democrats each won two, with the vote percentage in that order from high to low.

Greece: Alex Tsipras’ pro-Europe anti-austerity SYRIZA party (technically a coalition of parties) won the largest vote at 30% to conservative New Democracy’s 26%. The Social Democratic Party, one of the two major parties until the 2009 debt crisis exploded, got one seat. At the moment, they seem to be on the verge of being replaced completely by SYRIZA. They discredited themselves radically in knuckling under to Merkel’s austerity policies, which have damaged Greece more severely than any other country. The far-right and violence-inclined Golden Dawn party, frequently described (not without reason) as a neo-Nazi party, took third place. (Grecia vota contra la austeridad y le da la victoria a Syriza Público 26.05.2014))

With 21 seats total for Greece, SYRIZA gets 7 seats and the Communist Party 1, the conservative ND 6, Golden Dawn 2 and another far-right grouping 2, the Social Democrats 1 and a closely allied new center-left-liberal party Potami 1, and another anti-Europe party 1.

Ireland: The conservatives came out ahead, with the Left and the liberals following in that order. The reporting I’m seeing on the Irish outcome at the moment is somewhat confusing, but the anti-austerity position represented by second-place Sinn Fein is clearly significant: “A near meltdown for Labour, the junior coalition partner, and a swing to Sinn Fein that left that party jubilant, led the [conservative] Prime Minister Enda Kenny to concede: ‘Sometimes in politics you get a wallop.’” (David McKittrick, Election results 2014: Sinn Fein profits as voters reject austerity policies The Independent 26.05.2014) This continues a trend we’ve seen as well in the “periphery” countries Greece and Italy, in which the Social Democrats’ embrace of Herbert Hoover/Heinrich Brüning austerity politics has boosted the support for newly-rising left parties, SYRIZA in Greece and the Five Star Movement in Italy.

Italy: From the BBC News European Parliament results: “EU projected result as of 08:49. Centre-left PM Matteo Renzi won a strong 40% [31 of 73 seats], Beppe Grillo’s Five Star [17 seats] achieved 22% and ex-PM Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia 16% [17 seats].” This was a significant fall in Five Star’s vote from last year’s national election.

Portugal: The Socialist Party (social-democratic) won seven seats, the conservative party (which is confusingly named the Social Democratic Party in Portugal) won six, the Left three.

Spain: Five years of crisis and austerity policies can evidently shift voters’ perspectives. The two leading parties in the 2009 EP vote, the conservative People’s Party (PP) and the Socialist Party (PSOE), came in first and second respectively as they did in 2009. But with a notable difference. The PP’s vote in 2009 was 43%, 27% in 2014; the PSOE’s 29% in 2009, 24% in 2014. In 2014 out of 54 seats, the PP wins 16, the PSOE 14, the Left six, the liberals three, the Greens two. While it was an electoral shock to the PP and PSOE, the pro-Europe/anti-austerity votes can’t be said to be that strong in these results.

Kidnapped Girls Become Tools of US Imperial Policy in Africa

The “humanitarian” U.S. military occupation of Africa has been very successful, thus far. “The Chibok abductions have served the same U.S. foreign policy purposes as Joseph Kony sightings in central Africa.” Imagine: the superpower that financed the genocide of six million in Congo, claims to be a defender of teenage girls and human rights on the continent. If you believe that, then you are probably a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

A chorus of outraged public opinion demands that the “international community” and the Nigerian military “Do something!” about the abduction by Boko Haram of 280 teenage girls. It is difficult to fault the average U.S. consumer of packaged “news” products for knowing next to nothing about what the Nigerian army has actually been “doing” to suppress the Muslim fundamentalist rebels since, as senior columnist Margaret Kimberley pointed out in these pages, last week, the three U.S. broadcast networks carried “not a single television news story about Boko Haram” in all of 2013. (Nor did the misinformation corporations provide a nanosecond of coverage of the bloodshed in the Central African Republic, where thousands died and a million were made homeless by communal fighting over the past year.) But, that doesn’t mean the Nigerian army hasn’t been bombing, strafing, and indiscriminately slaughtering thousands of, mainly, young men in the country’s mostly Muslim north.

The newly aware U.S. public may or may not be screaming for blood, but rivers of blood have already flowed in the region. Those Americans who read – which, presumably, includes First Lady Michelle Obama, who took her husband’s place on radio last weekend to pledge U.S. help in the hunt for the girls – would have learned in the New York Times of the army’s savage offensive near the Niger border, last May and June. In the town of Bosso, the Nigerian army killed hundreds of young men in traditional Muslim garb “Without Asking Who They Are,” according to the NYT headline. “They don’t ask any questions,” said a witness who later fled for his life, like thousands of others. “When they see young men in traditional robes, they shoot them on the spot,” said a student. “They catch many of the others and take them away, and we don’t hear from them again.”

The Times’ Adam Nossiter interviewed many refugees from the army’s “all-out land and air campaign to crush the Boko Haram insurgency.” He reported:

“All spoke of a climate of terror that had pushed them, in the thousands, to flee for miles through the harsh and baking semidesert, sometimes on foot, to Niger. A few blamed Boko Haram — a shadowy, rarely glimpsed presence for most residents — for the violence. But the overwhelming majority blamed the military, saying they had fled their country because of it.”

In just one village, 200 people were killed by the military.

In March of this year, fighters who were assumed to be from Boko Haram attacked a barracks and jail in the northern city of Maiduguri. Hundreds of prisoners fled, but 200 youths were rounded up and made to lie on the ground. A witness told the Times: “The soldiers made some calls and a few minutes later they started shooting the people on the ground. I counted 198 people killed at that checkpoint.”

All told, according to Amnesty International, more than 600 people were extrajudicially murdered, “most of them unarmed, escaped detainees, around Maiduguri.” An additional 950 prisoners were killed in the first half of 2013 in detention facilities run by Nigeria’s military Joint Task Force, many at the same barracks in Maiduguri. Amnesty International quotes a senior officer in the Nigerian Army, speaking anonymously: “Hundreds have been killed in detention either by shooting them or by suffocation,” he said. “There are times when people are brought out on a daily basis and killed. About five people, on average, are killed nearly on a daily basis.”

Chibok, where the teenage girls were abducted, is 80 miles from Maiduguri, capital of Borno State.

In 2009, when the Boko Haram had not yet been transformed into a fully armed opposition, the military summarily executed their handcuffed leader and killed at least 1,000 accused members in the states of Borno, Yobe, Kano and Bauchi, many of them apparently simply youths from suspect neighborhoods. A gruesome video shows the military at work. “In the video, a number of unarmed men are seen being made to lie down in the road outside a building before they are shot,” Al Jazeera reports in text accompanying the video. “As one man is brought out to face death, one of the officers can be heard urging his colleague to ‘shoot him in the chest not the head – I want his hat.’”

These are only snapshots of the army’s response to Boko Haram – atrocities that are part of the context of Boko Haram’s ghastly behavior. The military has refused the group’s offer to exchange the kidnapped girls for imprisoned Boko Haram members. (We should not assume that everyone detained as Boko Haram is actually a member – only that all detainees face imminent and arbitrary execution.)

None of the above is meant to tell Boko Haram’s “side” in this grisly story (fundamentalist religious jihadists find no favor at BAR), but to emphasize the Nigerian military’s culpability in the group’s mad trajectory – the same military that many newly-minted “Save Our Girls” activists demand take more decisive action in Borno.

The bush to which the Boko Haram retreated with their captives was already a free-fire zone, where anything that moves is subject to obliteration by government aircraft. Nigerian air forces have now been joined by U.S. surveillance planesoperating out of the new U.S. drone base in neighboring Niger, further entrenching AFRICOM/CIA in the continental landscape. Last week it was announced that, for the first time, AFRICOM troops will train a Nigerian ranger battalion in counterinsurgency warfare.

The Chibok abductions have served the same U.S. foreign policy purposes as Joseph Kony sightings in central Africa, which were conjured-up to justify the permanent stationing of U.S Special Forces in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, the Central African Republic and South Sudan, in 2011, on humanitarian interventionist grounds. (This past March, the U.S. sent150 more Special Ops troops to the region, claiming to have again spotted Kony, who is said to be deathly ill, holed up with a small band of followers somewhere in the Central African Republic.) The United States (and France and Britain, plus the rest of NATO, if need be) must maintain a deepening and permanent presence in Africa to defend the continent from…Africans.

When the crowd yells that America “Do something!” somewhere in Africa, the U.S. military is likely to already be there.

US sends troops to search for Nigeria girls

Barack Obama certainly needs no encouragement to intervention; his presidency is roughly coterminous with AFRICOM’s founding and explosive expansion. Obama broadened the war against Somalia that was launched by George Bush in partnership with the genocidal Ethiopian regime, in 2006 (an invasion that led directly to what the United Nations called “the worst humanitarian crisis is Africa”). He built on Bill Clinton and George Bush’s legacies in the Congo, where U.S. client states Uganda and Rwanda caused the slaughter of 6 million people since 1996 – the greatest genocide of the post War World II era. He welcomed South Sudan as the world’s newest nation – the culmination of a decades-long project of the U.S., Britain and Israel to dismember Africa’s largest country, but which has now fallen into a bloody chaos, as does everything the U.S. touches, these days.

Most relevant to the plight of Chibok’s young women, Obama led “from behind” NATO’s regime change in Libya, removing the anti-jihadist bulwark Muamar Gaddafi (“We came, we saw, he died,” said Hillary Clinton) and destabilizing the whole Sahelian tier of the continent, all the way down to northern Nigeria. As BAR editor and columnist Ajamu Baraka writes in the current issue, “Boko Haram benefited from the destabilization of various countries across the Sahel following the Libya conflict.” The once-“shadowy” group now sported new weapons and vehicles and was clearly better trained and disciplined. In short, the Boko Haram, like other jihadists, had become more dangerous in a post-Gaddafi Africa – thus justifying a larger military presence for the same Americans and (mainly French) Europeans who had brought these convulsions to the region.

If Obama has his way, it will be a very long war – the better to grow AFRICOM – with some very unsavory allies (from both the Nigerian and American perspectives).

Whatever Obama does to deepen the U.S. presence in Nigeria and the rest of the continent, he can count on the Congressional Black Caucus, including its most “progressive” member, Barbara Lee (D-CA), the only member of the U.S. Congress to vote against the invasion of Afghanistan, in 2001. Lee, along with Reps. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) and fellow Californian Karen Bass, who is the ranking member on the House Subcommittee on African, gave cart blanch to Obama to “Do something!” in Nigeria. “And so our first command and demand is to use all resources to bring the terrorist thugs to justice,” they said.

A year and a half ago, when then UN Ambassador Susan Rice’s prospects for promotion to top U.S. diplomat were being torpedoed by the Benghazi controversy, a dozen Black congresspersons scurried to her defense. “We will not allow a brilliant public servant’s record to be mugged to cut off her consideration to be secretary of state,” said Washington, DC Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton.

As persons who are presumed to read, Black Caucus members were certainly aware of the messy diplomatic scandal around Rice’s role in suppressing United Nation’s reports on U.S. allies’ Rwanda and Uganda’s genocidal acts against the Congolese people. Of all the high profile politicians from both the corporate parties, Rice – the rabid interventionist – is most intimately implicated in the Congo holocaust, dating back to the policy’s formulation under Clinton. Apparently, that’s not the part of Rice’s record that counts to Delegate Norton and the rest of the Black Caucus. Genocide against Africans does not move them one bit.

The United States has deployed 80 military personnel to Chad to help in the search for the nearly 300 girls kidnapped by the armed group Boko Haram in neighbouring Nigeria last month, President Barack Obama has said.

Obama notified lawmakers in a statement released on Wednesday about the latest steps under way to assist in the return of the abducted girls.

He said the service members will help with intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft for missions over northern Nigeria. He said the force would stay in Chad until its support is no longer necessary.

The troops mark a significant boost to an existing US military effort which includes the use of surveillance drones as well as manned aircraft over Nigeria.

Al Jazeera’s Rosiland Jordan, reporting from Washington, DC, said that the US government had significant leads to be followed in Chad to find the abducted girls.

She also said that US intelligence officials were in Nigeria’s capital Abuja to assist the government in the search.

“There are about 30 or so people from the CIA, the State Department, the military, and the FBI working as a team in Abuja with Nigerian officials to help them conduct this search,” she said.

Al Jazeera meets Nigerians displaced by Boko Haram violence

Chad shares a portion of its western border with northeastern Nigeria. The girls and young women, all from a school in northern Nigeria, were kidnapped on April 14 in the town of Chibok.

Dozens escaped, but the group’s leader has threatened on video to sell most of the remaining 276 schoolgirls into slavery if the government does not release detained fighters.

The government of Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan came under intense criticism for its initial response to the kidnappings. Since then, the international community has pledged its assistance.

Meanwhile, violence has continued, with attacks on villages attributed to Boko Haram leaving scores dead. Twin blasts in the city of Jos killing at least 122 people on Tuesday. Hours later, 17 people were killed in the northern village of Alagarno and dozens more in two other villages.

The Picture above is what is called Branding. They find a slogan and begin to market the hash tags by celebrities and then in flows the money. Its all about money. Money in minerals and money in contributions to finance yet another invasion of a nation we have no business in. They want it so they will market it and you will feel so good about it.  Charity begins at home folks. This nation will soon learn that hard lesson, because we refuse to care for our own right here right now AT HOME.

A

First Kony 2012 now the Boko Kidnapping to get the sheeple to comply with granting mass access of the NWO into the mineral rich African Nation. The Media Hoax just doesn’t stop. “Bring the girls back” will pull at the heart strings of our nation to deliver hell onto these people in a foreign land. Have we not done enough to that nation throughout history.  It is all smoke and mirrors to affect our perceptions of what they are actually pulling behind our backs. Come on People Open Your Eyes. Since when do girls in Nigeria write messages in English. This is only for the benefit of those it is produced for. You the American suckers who will pitch in millions to save (what look like women not children) from the clutches of the evil guy in front of the green screen.

Boko Haram: Global Media Busted Promoting Fake Images Of “Ghost” Of Shekau

May green screen

Oct. 16, 2013

NewsRescue- Global media has been busted promoting several similar editions of glaringly fake video’s and clips of purported videos intended to portray Nigeria’s Boko Haram terrorist leader, Abubakar Shekau as still being alive and healthy.

Follow these links to see the ridiculously FAKE, floating over-sized head Shekau with the same green-screen, similar to the September “I am alive” video,  in globalist media reports from May 29th, 2013: FoxNewsAFP hosted on YahooJapanTodayStarAfrica. AFP never produced the video these images were said to have been taken from in May. This was a very, very poor photoshop job. More links in story.

We have detailed in several articles, the foreign plot to use Boko Haram terrorism to destroy Nigeria and necessitate foreign intervention and invasion. On May 15th, Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan suddenly complied to NewsRescue’s May 8th report (Nigeria At War) which presented an urgent call for the declaration of a State of Emergency (SoE) and full troop deployment to the northern states, despite rejection for the SoE from all governors and party members and Nigerian leaders across board; and to an unsuspecting West.

The declaration of war by the president as NewsRescue had urged, yielded great results against the terror menace, significantly incapacitating them. However this did not please the foreign elements who immediately started discouraging the Nigerian army, claiming the army was worse than this several thousand strong fully armed terrorist rebellion that had destroyed half of Borno.

Now for some odd and sick reason, the global media is working hard to present the terrorist leader as still alive, doing so with numerous glaringly fake videos and images. It is obvious the enemies of the Nigerian people will stop at nothing to cause suffering, pain and terror.

Nigeria’s government recently debunked the purported new video of Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, released by AFP in September, 2013.

The video was obtained and released on September 25th, exclusively by AFP in tiny pieces over 24 hours after it was reported to have been obtained and the complete video is yet to be released to the general public or media till date.

This video was released 24 hours later, only after media like ours insisted the simple report of a new video was cock and bull.

NewsRescue earlier concluded that Shekau is dead or as good as dead. The so-called new video’s are simply the works of Nigeria’s internal and foreign enemies who wish to utilize the Boko Haram saga for political and territorial invasion purposes.

We present here some peculiar information from our experts recent analysis.

Boko Haram and the love for the Hollywood green screen

The green screen is a Hollywood tool that can be used to impose and transpose video recordings on new backgrounds. It enables video pliability with recordings in the studio against a green-screen background easily being manipulated to appear outside, in a battle field, flying, in a crowd etc.

For peculiar reasons, Abubakar Shekau loves the green screen.

The shot below is from the ‘latest’ video released September 25th:

shekau1

Please note that bulky green carpet screen background.

Global Media May 2013 Video: Same Green-Screen, Obvious Floating Head Shekau

Now, a funny finding we discovered on the internet from way back 29th May this 2013, of another purported video of Shekau, also released exclusively by AFP, seen here on JapanToday and StarAfrica:

Shekau May 29th, 2013, AFP

Shekau May 29th, AFP

Please do not laugh!

These are real clips from videos AFP purportedly obtained of Shekau in May this year, according to several websites:

AFP: http://uk.news.yahoo.com/boko-haram-leader-says-supports-nigeria-school-massacre-070152245.html#MFtF9Lp

http://www.japantoday.com/category/world/view/boko-haram-leader-says-he-supports-nigeria-school-massacre

http://en.starafrica.com/news/nigeria-military-dismisses-boko-haram-propoganda.html

Danger on the wwwThe notorious Aljazeera also published this so-called May new video story, but refrained form using the caricature Green-screen-ghost Shekau images. Reuters too referenced, but showed not this weird video, nor even a still from it, they said on May 29th, “in a video seen by Reuters on Wednesday,”. United States FOX news and so many other media carried this glaringly fake, floating head image from the never revealed video that AFP distributed. See:http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/07/13/boko-haram-leader-supports-nigeria-school-massacre/

We immediately notice how weird Shekau looks in the May videos, with an obviously floating head.

The second thing that is rather obvious is the Hollywood green-screen.

The very same green mat that Shekau used in his purported May AFP videos, is the same peculiar carpet that he used again in the September video that the Nigerian government said his mouth did not move according to the words in.

There were slight changes to attire and people were added in front of the green-screen.

Assuming these are real videos, this would mean for certain that Shekau has been comfortably living in one location from May to September, or that he and his crew haul that bulky green carpet across the mountains.

We wonder how many different scene green-screen videos late Shekau recorded and deposited in a safe with Nigeria’s enemies for manipulation forever to maintain the sense of his immortality.

The May video where green-screen ghost Shekau purportedly denied the impact of the military onslaught was never distributed, because at that time NewsRescue and other NAM did not demand it as we did now, so only these weird two images were released.

It is possible that someone in Nigeria produced these ridiculously fake images to send to AFP, but this does not absolve AFP and other global media of their responsibility to screen such rubbish, floating head, spurious, rancid material from public consumption.

The Other Video Released By Western Media

There is interestingly another video released again exclusively by AFP, between these two videos.

In this one, again our charismatic Shekau appeared like the most sick and retarded doll:

shekau-sick2Again, this video has the green-screen, though this time, a more light-weight trampoline.

There are very few conclusions that can be drawn from the peculiarity of the releases of these videos, the absence of the complete recordings with only snips being revealed to the masses–even if the audio contains messages, this can be done over with music as NewsRescue does with its releases–but rather just few minutes and sometimes only stills from the purported videos are given to the public who are meant to believe the monster is still alive. Shekau is dead! As dead as Osama.

How The Fake Boston Bombings Was Made

kits

HERSHEY >> A group of doctors in training at Penn State Hershey Medical Center got a taste of what it would be like to manage a disaster scene Wednesday morning. The Derry Township hospital’s Department of Emergency Medicine participated in a series of exercises that simulated a bomb explosion at a marathon.

The Life Lion EMS hangar was a scene of chaos as about 15 medical residents rushed to help the “victims” — volunteer actors and one “dead” dummy — as the training began.

 

Dr. Jeffrey Lubin, Division Chief for Life Lion, said the training Wednesday was new for the residents.

“Part of their education as residents in emergency medicine is to understand the pre-hospital EMS environment,” Lubin explained. “We’ve been trying to infuse some hands-on realism in our training.”

 

The training teaches the residents about tactical scenes, terrorist scenes, mass casualty and disaster scenes. The lessons they must learn include organization, safety and medical care in a hostile environments.

 

“The medicine is different (in these types of scenes),” he said. “The truth is most of them are physicians and will never be on a scene like this. However, they will be receiving patients from a scene like this and providing direction to the EMTs and paramedics who are out there taking care of the patients. They need to understand it, so they know what’s happened before the patient gets to them.”

 

Lubin said there have been few real incidents in central Pennsylvania in recent years. The most recent mass casualty incident he could recall was the shooting at the West Nickel Mines School, a one-room Amish school in Bart Township, Lancaster County. In October 2006, a gunman shot 10 of the girls in the classroom. Some of the victims were brought to Hershey Medical Center, he said.

The residents went through several training sessions Wednesday, the first without any preparation to determine what they knew. The residents were then debriefed before the second session.

 

In the second session, some twists were added to the original scenario, including a second gun and a second bomb explosion .

 

“The goal is for them to get off the scene as quickly as they can safely, taking care of patients, but they’ve got to extract themselves off the dangerous scene and get some place that’s more safe,” said Dr. Kevin King, Program Director for Emergency Medicine Residency. King completed a fellowship at Boston Medical Center and worked at the Boston Marathon several years ago. He was not there during last year’s tragic bombing.

King said the residents had similar training last year, but this year the realism of the incident was increased.

“It’s important to do the suspension of disbelief, because when they forget it’s a simulation, the more they remember and apply in the real-world situation,” King said.

The second time around, Lubin said teachers are looking to see how the residents respond and see how the lessons from the first incident are learned.

The scene included about a dozen “victims,” dressed up by emergency medical technicians. Members of the Dauphin County crisis team also helped with the training.

Following the second simulation, Lubin said the residents showed they had learned from their mistakes in the first one.

“They’ve learned to be more efficient, more effective, to communicate better and to more safely take care of patients on a chaotic scene,” Lubin said.

Dr. Ilana Erlich, a medical resident from Toronto, Canada, said she and her fellow participants were unprepared during the first training simulation.

“We learned the hard way what we need to work on,” she said. The majority of the residents who participated in the sessions have not been trained in emergency medical service, she said. They receive that training in their second year of residency, she added. “I think that we learned a lot from that and we did quite well the second time, just being prepared with our roles and expectations.”

Erlich said it’s important to train with a team.

“You have to train with the team you’re going to be with. Here we’re all working together as residents and we all know each other and now we would have more defined potential,” she said.

Loren Archibeque of Missouri volunteered to be one of the victims in the simulation. She is studying Public Health at the College of Medicine in Hershey.

Archibeque said it was an educational experience.

“In our master of health program, we do learn about public health preparedness, but since we aren’t trained as EMTs, we don’t actually see what’s going on at an event like this,” she said. “I’m a runner and so whenever you are running at Hershey Half Marathon you do wonder are they prepared to handle something like this.”

Archibeque said there were a few flaws in the first simulation, but they corrected them in the second one.

She said it was “very exciting” to be one of the victims. “The first time it seemed a little silly but the second time I wanted to make it harder for them to see if they could really respond,” she added.

She said during the second simulation she placed herself facedown on the floor and acted unresponsive so she couldn’t give them any details of her condition.

The simulation training also will help her in her career, she said.

“As public health professionals, we’re always thinking about how we can be ready for a public health disaster or a natural disaster or an emergency such as the Boston Marathon,” she said.

Yeah! like This, Right ? HAHAAAHHH you’ve been fooled !!!!!!!

Harvard Hosting Satanic “BLACK MASS”

By: JEROME R. CORSI

 With secularism on the rise in the United States, Satanists increasingly appear willing to challenge Christians for equal time and space in the public square, under the rubric of asserting First Amendment rights of religious freedom.

Now, under the auspices of a student group, Harvard University is going to allow a Satanist group from New York to perform on Monday a Black Mass on campus.

It will take place in the basement of Memorial Hall, despite strong objections voiced by the Roman Catholic Church.

“It’s unacceptable,” Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights headquartered in New York City told WND.

“Harvard would never allow an anti-gay event on the campus sponsored by an independent student organization and then have Harvard conclude, ‘Well, that’s the way the student’s feel about the issue and we believe in academic freedom.’”

Donahue said that if Harvard doesn’t stop it, the university should at the very least put out a statement condemning the event.

Donohue said he was particularly upset because Harvard’s first reaction was to misrepresent the event.

“Leaving aside the in-your-face assault to the Catholic Church that is being made here, I don’t like it when people lie,” he said.

“Harvard put out a statement initially that made it sound like the controversy related to a controversy over a Buddhist presentation or a Shinto presentation, without mentioning in their statement that it was the Satanic Temple of New York sponsoring a Black Mass on the campus,” Donahue said.

He noted that Harvard then “got so much flack they revised their statement, but they lied again saying the ceremony was meant to be educational.”

“There’s nothing educational about allowing Satanists to celebrate a Black Mass any more than it would be to allow the enemies of Muslims or the enemies of Jews to conduct an anti-Muslim or an anti-Semitic ceremony on campus,” he said. “How about Holocaust deniers? Is Harvard going to give them a forum on campus, too?”

The Harvard Cultural Studies Club, a student group organized under the auspices of the Harvard Extension School, has invited the Satanic Temple of New York City to conduct the Black Mass on Monday at the Queen’s Head Pub, a student eatery and beer hall located in the basement ofMemorial Hall, a Victorian Gothic structure built north of Harvard Yard in Cambridge in the 1870s to commemorate Harvard students who fought for the Union in the Civil War.

WND contacted Harvard University for comment and received no response.

“We are hosting a reenactment of a historical event known as a Black Mass,” the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club said in a press release. “The performance is designed to be educational and is preceded by a lecture that provides the history, context and origin of the black mass.”

The Harvard statement denied the Black Mass would include a desecration of a consecrated host, an aspect of the typical Satanic Black Mass ceremony that is widely seen as an attack on the Catholic Church in particular.

“While a piece of bread is used in the reenactment, the performance unequivocally does not include a consecrated host,” the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club continued.

“Our purpose is not to denigrate any religion or faith, which would be repugnant to our educational purposes, but instead to learn and experience the history of different cultural practices. This performance is part of a larger effort to explore religious facets that continue to influence contemporary culture.”

Satanic activists

The Satanic Temple of New York appears particularly determined to promote Satanism under the guise of supporting the First Amendment.

The decision of Harvard University to allow the Cultural Studies Club to host a Satanic Mass on campus follows the continuing request by the Temple of Satan in New York to install their nearly finished seven-foot statue of Baphomet cast in bronze in a place of honor on the lawn in front of the Oklahoma state Capitol, next to a carving of the Ten Commandments that was erected in 2012.

“Should Holocaust deniers, for instance, be allowed to speak on a college campus?” Donohue asked. “No, they shouldn’t. But there should be a place in our society where they could speak? Yes, in New York, places like Madison Square Garden, Central Park and the Beacon Theater can be open to anyone to speak. But a university is about the pursuit of truth.”

Former Harvard student Doug Mesner, who has changed his name to Lucien Graves in his capacity as a leader and spokesman for the Satanic Temple of New York, told ABC News that the efforts to erect the Baphomet statue on the grounds of the Oklahoma state Capitol reflect an effort by the group to “celebrate our progress as a pluralist nation founded on secular law.”

Graves said: “I would argue that the message behind our monument speaks more directly to the formation of U.S. constitutional values than the Ten Commandments possibly could.”

Ryan Kiesel, the executive director of the ACLU’s Oklahoma state chapter, which is currently contesting in court the Ten Commandments monument on the Oklahoma state Capitol grounds, said the monument should be removed, because it violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

The ACLU has not filed a similar lawsuit against the Baphomet statue.

“I think that our position is there shouldn’t be any religious monuments at the state Capitol, that anytime the government has a monument representing one faith it creates an atmosphere that is not welcoming to people of all faiths or non-believers,” Kiesel told the Tulsa World.

“If, at the end of the day, the Ten Commandments monument is allowed to remain on the Capitol grounds with its overtly Christian message, then the Satanic Temple’s proposal can’t be rejected because it is of a different religious viewpoint.”

Archdiocese of Boston objects

On Thursday, the Archdiocese of Boston asked Harvard to cancel the event, saying in a statement: “The Catholic community of Boston expresses its deep sadness and strong opposition to the plan to stage a ‘black mass’ on the campus of Harvard University in Cambridge.”

The archdiocese said that for “the good of the Catholic faithful and all people, the Church provides clear teaching concerning Satanic worship.”

“This activity separates people from God and the human community, it is contrary to charity and goodness, and it places participants dangerously close to destructive works of evil.”

In response to the Black Mass, the Boston Archdiocese scheduled a holy hour beginning Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time at St. Paul’s Church in Cambridge.

In its public statement, the Archdiocese of Boston also referenced Pope Francis’ recent warning that Satan exists in the 21st Century.

On April 11, speaking in the chapel of the Vatican guesthouse known as St. Martha’s House, where he resides, the pope discussed Satan’s temptations of Christ.

“The devil tempted Jesus many times, and Jesus experienced temptation and persecution throughout his lifetime,” the pope said, as reported by Vatican Radio.

Francis warned that all Christians today must be aware of the reality.

“We too are the target of attacks by the devil because the spirit of Evil does not want our holiness,” Francis said. “But look out because the devil is present! The devil is here … even in the 21st Century! And we must not be naïve, right? We must learn from the Gospel how to fight against Satan.”

Behind the veil of satire

In an interview published in Vice.com July 30, 2013, Doug Mesner claimed the members of the Satanic Temple of New York are Satanists in the traditional sense, who enjoy using the group in a satirical sense.

“Our very presence as civic-minded socially responsible Satanists serves to satirize the ludicrous superstitious fears that the word Satan tends to evoke,” Mesner said.

“The Satanic Temple was actually conceived of independent from me by a friend and one of his colleagues,” he continued.

“They envisioned it more as a ‘poison pill’ in the church-state debate. The idea was that Satanists, asserting their rights and privileges where religious agendas have been successful in imposing themselves upon public affairs, could serve as a poignant reminder that such privileges are for everybody, and can be used to serve an agenda beyond the current narrow understanding of what ‘the’ religious agenda is.”

The ability of the Satanists from Satanic Temple of New York to combine sacrilege and satire in an affront to conventional moral views can be seen in the group’s protest against Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas an unaffiliated church known for its outlandish protests against homosexuals.

Westboro-Baptists.com, a website owned and operated by the Satanic Temple of New York, documented a “Pink Mass” the Satanists performed at the Magnolia Cemetery gravesite in Meridian, Mississippi, of Catherine Idalette Johnson, the wife of Fred W. Phelps Sr., and the mother of Fred Phelps Jr., the Westboro founder.

The Satanic Temple of New York explains on the website the nature of the ceremony performed, noting, “After a “Pink Mass” has been performed, every time a same sex couple kisses over the gravesite, the now-gay deceased is said to be pleasured in the afterlife.”

The group’s website showed photographs of a lesbian and a homosexual couple kissing over Catherine Idalette Johnson’s tombstone, commenting that, “Upon completion of the Pink Mass ceremony, Catherine Johnson is now gay in the afterlife.”

The website of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, titled “God Hates Fags,” has drawn the ire of the LBGT community. The Southern Poverty Law Center, an extremist group on the political left, characterized the Westboro Baptist Church as “arguably the most obnoxious and rabid hate group in America.”

The Satanic Temple of New York is also raising money under the Adopt-a-Highway program in New York City. The group is seeking donations to erect blue-and-white signs “acknowledging the Satanic Temple as the adopters of the designated piece of highway, helping promote a message of Satanic civic pride and social responsibility.”

8 Stories of Civilians Killed by Nobel Peace Prize’s Drones in Yemen

A drone was hovering overhead all morning. There were one or two of them. One of the missiles hit the car. The car was totally burned. Four other cars were also struck. When we stopped, we heard the drone fire. Blood was everywhere, and the people killed and injured were scattered everywhere,” said Abdullah Muhammad al-Taysi in an interview with Democracy Now.

What al-Taysi describes here is not a gruesome scene from a war zone — it is a wedding that took place in the Yemeni city of Rad’a, a happy celebration that turned bloody, thanks to a strike carried out by a drone operated by the U.S. military. The attack resulted in 12 deaths, including al-Taysi’s son, Ali Abdullah Muhammad al-Taysi.

He wasn’t the first loved one to be killed by a drone strike, and he won’t be the last. We don’t know the exact number of civilians killed by missiles fired by drones, but up to 132 civilians may have been killed between 2002 and 2014.

“It is a lot like playing a video game. But playing the video game for four years on the same level,” said one former operator of Predator drones.

Former drone operator Heather Linebaugh described in the Guardian how hard it was to distinguish between civilians and an intended target on the videos provided by drones: “We always wonder if we killed the right people, if we endangered the wrong people, if we destroyed an innocent civilian’s life all because of a bad image or angle.”

That lack of humanity is part of the problem: Drone operators tucked away somewhere in Nevada or New Mexico are shielded from the casualties of their work, the human beings killed, the damage and destruction caused when a hellfire missile explodes into a car packed full of people.

That’s perhaps why they’re the weapon of choice for the Obama administration: Afghanistan, Iraq and, on a lesser scale, Libya, have left Americans wary of more foreign adventures. Instead of dealing with body bags returning home, drones offer a different way of attacking the enemy without ever having to put U.S. soldiers into harm’s way.

The argument is that the civilians are collateral damage, and it’s horrible that they had to die, but that’s war. But there is no war between the U.S. and Yemen. The war is with al-Qaida, a non-state entity — and waging a war against a group leaves more room for Yemeni civilians to get caught in the crossfire.

The following stories of eight people killed by drone strikes are important to tell because they show that behind every sanitized report of drone casualty figures, there are real people with goals, loves and dreams whose lives have been extinguished.

1. The child: Abdulaziz al-Huraydan

Abdulaziz was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The 10-year-old was killed in a strike in June 2013 in al-Jawf. Already in the 7th grade, he was bright for his age. The school certificate his father proudly held up showed that he had excelled in his Quran and Arabic language exams that year. He passed his English class, too.

Abdulaziz’s brother, Saleh, was the target of the strike that killed them both. He had joined AQAP (al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula), and was disowned by his father. Saleh had been away from his family for months, but on the day of the strike had decided to come and see his mother. As he passed through town in his pickup truck, Abdulaziz spotted him and asked for a ride home.

Abdulaziz’s father, Hassan, was upset at the idea that his youngest son was a justified target.

“If people say he is from al-Qaida, tell them to bring him to me,” he said. “He was a 10-year-old child. He was innocent.”

2. The father: Aref al-Shafi’i

Aref, 30, and married with seven children, was out celebrating a wedding last December when he was killed. Wedding convoys are a tradition in Yemen called a zafa, and around 11 vehicles were taking the bride and groom back to the groom’s village, Jishm. Four missiles fired from a drone hovering above the convoy killed Aref, along with 11 others.

Aref’s father, Ahmed, a 70-year-old shepherd, said Aref provided for his extended family by going into Saudi Arabia and selling goods, and then returning after a month or two. Now his family has to provide for his wife and children, the youngest of whom was 15 days old when his father was killed.

Zabanallah, Aref’s elder brother, was adamant that his brother was innocent.

“Why do they only kill the innocent? The weak? They orphaned the children.”

When Aref’s body arrived in Jishm with the other dead, the whole village erupted in mourning.

“They were wailing from one side of the valley to the other when they saw what happened to him,” Ahmed said. “If you’d have heard it, it would have haunted you.”

3. The brother: Salim Al-Taysi

Salim was in the same wedding convoy as his fellow villager Aref when the drone missiles struck.

A father of six, he lived in a small stone building that he’d recently built. The villagers were semi-nomadic and regularly moved, seeking new pastures for their livestock to graze on.

Ahmed, Salim’s brother, is now taking care of Salim’s wife and children, in addition to providing for his own wife and four children. He is worried about the future, and sees no help coming from his own government.

“The state has done nothing,” he told PolicyMic. “Nothing. There’s nothing here.”

Salim’s son, also named Ahmed, could barely speak when I met him. When asked about what had happened, the child responded bluntly:

“My dad was hit by the plane. It would be better if my dad was still here.”

4. The teen killed by his own government: Abdulrahman al-Awlaki

Via: ACLU
Abdulrahman, an American citizen, was a 16-year-old whose Facebook profile shows a moppy-haired, smiling teenager messing about with friends. His father, however, was AQAP cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. Abdulrahman was killed by a U.S. drone in October 2011.

Abdulrahman was born in Denver, and the fact of the matter is that he was a child killed by his own government. According to his father, Nasser, he watched The Simpsons and listened to Snoop Dogg. The overwhelming evidence that he was no militant was not enough for former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, however, who said that Abdulrahman should’ve “had a more responsible father.”

Abdulrahman disappeared from his family home in Sana’a in September 2011 to go and look for his father, whom he had not seen for two years. He traveled to his family’s ancestral homeland, Shabwa, only to learn that his father had been killed by a drone on Sept. 30. He called his family to say he was coming home. He didn’t; two weeks after Anwar al-Awlaki’s death, Abdulrahman was killed at an open-air restaurant.

5. The anti-al-Qaida Imam: Salim Ahmed Jaber

Via: Reprieve
Salim was the very type of person that those fighting al-Qaida should hope to protect. The imam of a mosque, he was an opponent of al-Qaida, regularly preaching against them, and in the process of setting up an organization that would oppose al-Qaida ideology. He was a schoolteacher and held a master’s degree.

On Aug. 28, 2012, Salim travelled to his ancestral village of Khashamir to celebrate the wedding of his nephew.

On Aug. 24, Salim had been invited to give the Friday sermon at the village mosque. In it he challenged al-Qaida to present Islamic evidence for their actions. On Aug. 29, al-Qaida members came looking for Salim, and he agreed to debate them. Missiles were fired at Salim and the al-Qaida men, and they were all killed immediately.

Faisal Jaber, Salim’s brother-in-law, has many unanswered questions. Why was the car attacked in a populated area? Why were the vehicle’s occupants not apprehended while passing through the army checkpoints?

“Who will compensate the victims, and the orphans, and the widows?” Faisal said. “Can the Americans live night and day in fear and terror? Do they consider us human beings with rights?”

6. The policeman: Waleed Abdullah Jaber

Via: Reprieve
Waleed was Salim Jaber’s nephew, and he was killed in the same drone strike in August 2012.

Waleed was a traffic policeman in Khashamir and 27 years old when he was killed. He had one son and was known for his bravery in the village. He was the youngest in his family.

Waleed had encouraged the reticent Salim to speak to the al-Qaida members who had turned up in the village. He told his uncle that there was no point in challenging al-Qaida and then being scared when they arrived. Taking his pistol with him, he joined his uncle outside the mosque where they were both killed. A pistol is no match for missiles.

7. The deputy governor: Jabir al-Shabwani

Via: Al-Arabiya
Jabir al-Shabwani was the deputy governor of Marib governorate and an important tribal leader there.

In May 2010 he went to meet al-Qaida members in an effort to mediate with them, and to get them to hand themselves in to the Yemeni authorities.

Instead, in a botched attack, a U.S. drone killed him in a place called Wadi Abida.

Since the killing, for which Yemen’s supreme security committee quickly apologized, the Shabwani tribe have been attacking government infrastructure in revenge for Jabir’s death. Marib is home to significant oil and gas reserves, and the power station that serves most of Yemen’s highland cities.

The tribe’s demand is that the Yemeni government stop cooperating with the American drone attacks. According to Yemeni political analyst Abdul Ghani al-Iryani, that drone strike has cost the Yemeni economy more than $1 billion.

8. The schoolteacher: Ali al-Qawli

Ali al-Qawli was a 34-year-old father of three and a teacher working at an elementary school in Juhana, just outside Yemen’s capital, Sana’a.

He was a cheerful, optimistic man and had been a supporter of Yemen’s popular revolution in 2011, joining thousands of others in Sanaa’s Change Square, where he called for freedom and democracy. He wanted a better future for himself and his country, and dedicated himself to his teaching. In 13 years of teaching, he hadn’t missed a day of work.

On the morning of Jan. 23, 2013, his students waited patiently for their teacher to arrive. “Mr. Ali will not be coming in today,” the principal eventually told them.

He had been killed by a drone strike the previous evening, after unwittingly picking up apparent al-Qaida members in the car his cousin used as a part-time taxi.
