The intelligence joke for the past 60 years has been…
”If the Jews are God’s chosen people, he gave them the one place in the Middle East that doesn’t have any oil, resources… or anything worth selling”
THIS IS MOST DEFINITELY NOT THE CASE!
”Whomever controls the Dead Sea in the 21st century… controls the world”
”With the tremendous world-wide food shortage that threatens mankind, any would-be dictator would take high risks to capture a treasure like this which could furnish enough fertilizer for the whole world, and with its other chemicals provide the explosives needed to subdue all its enemies!”

They have fed from behind and through fronts,’ as dictated to the family by patriarch Meyer Amschel Rothschild, nearly 250 years ago. The late Ben Freedman of the Speyer banking family, showed me a report on the estimated value of the mineral deposits of the Dead Sea prepared for the 1917 Lord Rothschild, at a time when Lord Mond controlled nickel, the Guggenheims controlled copper, Lord Swathling (Montague) controlled Anglo-Dutch oil, and Oppenheimer monopolized De Beers diamonds and South African gold. President Franklin Roosevelt’s son-in-law, Col. Curtis Dall, who had been with Wall Street’s Lehman bankers in the 1930s, refers to this geological report, made public in 1923, in his book which he gave me, Israel’s Five Trillion Dollar Secret, published privately in 1977. ‘The well-veiled objective of the Zionists backed by the Rothschild financial interests, was to acquire valid title to the Dead Sea, with its vast, inexhaustible deposits of potash and other minerals, estimated by experts to be worth several thousand billions of dollars’ Power Behind Globalism Exposed:Britain’s Balfour Declaration of 1917 – By Dr. Robert John in a Special reprint of The Barnes Review
THIS IS WHAT NO-ONE TALKS ABOUT!
(this what people I cared for deeply lost their lives over… trillions of dollars worth of minerals deposited in and around The Dead Sea)…
Control of the planets resources does NOT necessarily mean control of ‘oil’, ‘gas’ or any other fossil fuel.
The major resources for the 21st century are likely to be:- -Water -Phosphates -Potash -Lithium -The multi trillion dollar (10’s of trillions? 100’s?) mineral wealth deposited in and around The Dead Sea, Israel (estimated to be almost $5trillion in 1977)
It is believed that among other things (Natural Gas, strategically vital pipeline routes… the production of heroin), the country holds $3 trillion in untapped mineral deposits. In December 2013, President Karzai claimed the mineral deposits are actually worth $30 trillion. Mining in Afghanistan – Wikipedia
-I’ve been told around $9 trillion (take it from me… $9 trillion as it stands)
NOW… ISRAEL! ZIONISTS PLANS FOR A GREATER ISRAEL… THE DEAD SEA MINERAL DEPOSITS…
In 2009, I ‘accidently’ stumbled upon a document in The London History Museum Archives, pertaining to the MASSIVE Mineral Wealth deposited in and around The Dead Sea, what is now Israel.
The British Government knew of it’s potential in 1927 (possibly before)… it was valued in the hundreds of billions, at the beginning of the 20th century…
Mineral Wealth in Dead Sea is Worth $4,000,000,000, Says Sir Herbert Samuel
February 17, 1929
London (Feb. 15)
The mineral wealth of the Dead Sea, the reputed bed of Sodom and Gemorrah, is estimated to be eight hundred million pounds Sterling and equivalent of $4,000,000,000, a sum which would be sufficient to pay the expenses of all nations who participated in the World War, declared Sir Herbert Samuel, former High Commissioner of Palestine in a lecture he delivered last night at the Westbourne Park Baptist Church.
The difficulty, however, is, the former High Commissioner stated, that there must necessarily be great delay in obtaining and working the concession for the extraction of this wealth. Sir Herbert expressed the belief that Palestine when developed fully under the British Mandate would create an opportunity for three million Jews to settle and live there under the best conditions.
“There is in every respect cause for satisfaction with the British work in the Holy Land,” he said
Israel’s reputation as a country bereft of natural resources, surrounded by a sea of oil, is not entirely true. The Dead Sea contains rich deposits of minerals and there are major reserves of phosphates in the Negev desert. Together with local technological expertise and innovative industrial processes, these resources are the basis for a large and sophisticated chemicals industry.
Since the 1980s, this industry has rapidly developed its ability to extract minerals and create high-value end-user products such as fertilizers and pesticides, petrochemicals and plastics. With a small domestic market, most of the products are sold overseas; indeed, many of the companies in the chemicals and petrochemicals sectors are large corporations with an increasingly global reach. In the past five years, some $1.3 billion has been spent acquiring foreign companies, principally in Europe and Latin America, strengthening the industry’s marketing capacity.
In 1999, resource-based industrial exports reached nearly $3 billion. Sales of chemicals have tripled over the last decade, amounting to $8 billion – some 14% of the country’s total industrial production.
While the considerable income generated from Israel’s minerals could not possibly have been foreseen a century ago, Theodor Herzl, the founder of modern political Zionism, did envisage a flourishing industry based on the mineral riches of the Dead Sea. This vision was primarily based on the data collected by a U.S. Navy captain, W.F. Lynch, who carried out a geological survey of the Dead Sea region in 1848. Lynch reported that the basin – which at 400 meters below sea level is the lowest point on earth – was rich in phosphates, potash and bromine.
However, the region’s searing heat and isolation discouraged entrepreneurs from exploiting its resources until 1931, when Moses Novomeysky, a Russian-born industrial pioneer, persuaded the British Mandatory authorities to grant him a license to extract minerals from the Dead Sea. A year later, Novomeysky opened a factory at its northern end, and in 1934 a second plant was opened near the biblical site of Sodom. Prior to Israel’s independence in 1948, the factory was mining 8,000 tons of potash and bromine per year and employed 2,000 workers. However, the endeavor failed even to cover its costs, and after Israel lost control of the northern part of the Dead Sea during the War of Independence, the southern plant became even more isolated.
In 1948, Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, decided to nationalize the operation and to keep it running as a symbolic presence at the Dead Sea. In the early years, the Dead Sea Works failed to show a profit, but continued to operate until new technologies caused a remarkable turnaround in the company’s fortunes.
Dead Sea Treasures
Dead Sea Works Ltd. (DSW) is now a major subsidiary of Israel Chemical Industries Ltd. (ICL), a highly integrated and diversified multinational corporation with sales of close to two billion dollars annually, of which 75% is exported. ICL was privatized in 1994 (the government retains a 2% interest) and is part owned by the Israel Corporation (52%), with the rest of the shares traded on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange or owned by Canada’s Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan.
Situated on the site of the original plant near Sodom, DSW has an exclusive license to mine a range of minerals from the Dead Sea, and manufactures a broad selection of products for commercial use. The change in DSW’s fortunes began in the early 1980s when a new method of increasing the concentration of potash extracted from the Dead Sea was developed. Potash (potassium chloride – KCl), along with nitrogen and phosphorous, is essential for plant growth and is thus the basic ingredient in a range of fertilizers. By pouring extra brine into production basins containing the already highly salty water, the concentration of potash in the water was raised from 2% to 23%. In addition, the revolutionary cold crystallization process, developed and implemented in the 1980s, made it possible to extract potash at moderate instead of hot temperatures, thereby cutting energy costs. Further savings in DSW’s energy bills was achieved by the generation of electricity from the steam given off by a by-product of the potassium. At the same time, computerization of manufacturing functions, such as a conveyor belt that shifts the potash through the mountains to a railway line, have also reduced costs. Together, these innovations have enhanced the natural advantage that DSW has over its worldwide competitors, who extract potash from under the ground. In 1998, DSW produced a record 2.8 million tons of potash, as well as an additional 800,000 tons of granulated potash, compacted for subsequent bulk blending with other fertilizers. This is achieved by a workforce of 2,200, just 10% more than it took to produce 8,000 tons 50 years ago. About 7% of the potash is exported directly; most of the remaining amount is sold to local fertilizer manufacturers, who then export their products. In 1998, DSW enjoyed profits of $50 million, of which 71% were derived from potash. DSW’s investment program is geared to increase production capacity in the coming years to 3.2 million tons annually.
The Dead Sea also contains magnesium salts, which can be mined – using a unique technology introduced by immigrant scientists from Russia – and cast into metal (karnelite). This process is carried out by Dead Sea Magnesium (DSM), 65% of which is owned by DSW and 35% by the German automobile manufacturer Volkswagen. The DSM site near Sodom, established in 1996, is the largest industrial project in Israel. DSM produced about 25,000 tons of magnesium metal in 1998, the company’s first full year of operations. Magnesium is half the weight of aluminum, far more durable, and capable of resisting temperatures of up to 1,800°C. Global magnesium metal consumption reached 350,000 tons in 1998, and demand for the lightweight metal by the automobile and aerospace industry is expected to increase rapidly in the first decade of the 21st century.
DSW also manufactures magnesium chloride flakes and pellets, mainly for use in de-icing, and anhydrous aluminum chloride for use as a catalyst in organic production processes. In addition, DSW produces a range of cosmetic products through its subsidiary Dead Sea Laboratories, which is marketed under the name Ahava, as well as chlorine-based products for water purification. DSW also mines 100,000 tons of table salt each year. The Dead Sea is also rich in lithium, which could have future potential use in the nuclear energy industry. DSW’s total sales are about $500 million annually.
Dead Sea Periclase (DSP), an additional subsidiary of Israel Chemicals, extracts magnesium salts from the Dead Sea for the manufacture of magnesium oxide (magnesia or periclase), used by the refractory industry for manufacturing steel able to withstand the very high temperatures and harsh conditions in furnaces over long periods. The magnesia is extracted from the extremely saline water of the Dead Sea (120 times saltier than regular sea water), through a unique decomposition process developed by local scientists. By this method, DSP produces 100,000 tons of magnesia each year, resulting in company sales of $50 million, more than 80% of which is exported. The product is purer than the magnesia produced elsewhere in the world, because no external substances are used in its manufacture. Typical purity levels exceed 99.4% with very low contamination levels of boron and silica. Due to this unique chemical purity, low porosity, high mechanical strength, high density and large crystal size, DSP’s magnesia outperforms ordinary products, and is applied in the most severe wear zones of furnaces, as well as in slide-gates and tap-hole blocks.
Another major mineral extracted from the Dead Sea by ICL is bromine. Through its subsidiary Dead Sea Bromine Group Ltd. (DSBG), ICL produces over 200,000 tons of bromine compounds per year. The company’s production plants near the Dead Sea and in the Netherlands supply 33% of the world’s consumption of bromine compounds, which are used in plastics as a flame retardant, and as organic intermediates and monomers for specialty polymers. Bromine compounds are also used as chemicals in water treatment, oil drilling, the photo industry, cosmetics, air conditioners and pesticides. DSBG, whose annual sales exceed $500 million, is aware of the environmental damage that its products can cause. The company is therefore a signatory to the Montreal Protocol of the United Nations, conducts research to prevent possible damage of the ozone layer and allocates major resources to quality control.
Phosphates, Fertilizers and Agrochemicals
Phosphate rock is mined from three sites in the Negev, south and east of Be’er Sheva, by Rotem Amfert Negev Ltd., another company in the ICL Group. The company extracts minerals and manufactures them into end products. The phosphate is mined and washed making it suitable for the manufacture of phosphoric acid, super-phosphates and complex fertilizers. Upgraded mining equipment and new technologies introduced in recent years have resulted in finer materials and increased recovery rates for the raw phosphate. When combined with potash mined from the Dead Sea and added to other chemicals (mainly nitrogen), phosphates produce high-quality fertilizers. The company manufactures P, PK, NPK and MKP fertilizers as well as NPK fully soluble fertilizers. Rotem Amfert Negev’s annual sales of both raw materials and phosphate rock, as well as downstream derivatives including phosphoric acid, specialty chemicals, phosphate salts and fertilizers, amount to $720 million per year, of which 95% is exported.
Fertilizers & Chemicals Ltd., a Haifa-based subsidiary of ICL, manufactures a range of single and compounded fertilizers, both as liquids and granules, earning the company $100 million per year. It has developed over 100 products and over 800 product formulations, which provide farmers with a comprehensive package of fertilizers. These fertilizers cover the full range of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium formulations and the company’s professionals advise farmers in their correct use. Innovative fertilizers include fully soluble, low-nitrate and chlorine-free formulations for use in drip irrigation systems, and a slow-release NPK fertilizer that is released into the ground over three months.
Other major players in the field of fertilizers include Haifa Chemicals Ltd. and Makhteshim-Agan (MA) Industries Ltd. Owned by the U.S.-based Trans Resources Inc., Haifa Chemicals is the world’s largest manufacturer of potassium nitrate (KNO3). KNO3 fertilizers are completely absorbed by plants, leaving no harmful residues like chloride or sodium. Haifa Chemicals also markets “fertigation” systems – irrigation networks into which fertilizers can be introduced. In addition, Haifa Chemicals manufactures technical-grade potassium nitrate for industry. These products are used in the manufacture of glass, TV tubes, ceramics, pyrotechnics and heat treatment salts, as well as sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP), used in the detergents industry. Food-grade products are used for retaining moisture in processed meat, preventing discoloration in processed potatoes and ensuring the “meltability” and “spreadibility” of cheese.
MA Industries is the world’s largest manufacturers of generic pesticides and herbicides. Created by a merger of Makhteshim Chemicals Works Ltd. and Agan Chemical Manufacturers Ltd. in 1997, both owned by Koor Industries, MA Industries has combined sales of over one billion dollars, over 90% of which is exported. Its shares are traded on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. The company is ranked 10th globally in agro-chemical sales, and exports a broad range of insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, and plant growth regulators to over 100 countries. In recent years, MA Industries has acquired companies in Latin America and has become a leading player in the Brazilian agro-chemicals market, one of the largest in the world.
Ready-to-use formulations in various concentrations and combinations are available to suit differing geographic and climatic conditions worldwide, and technical-grade materials are supplied for formulation by overseas manufacturers. Leading insecticides include azinphos, carbaryl, chlorpyrifos, endosulfan, monocrotophos and methidathion. Fungicides include captan, folpet and captafol. MA Industries is also a global leader in the production of synthetic aroma products for the detergent and cosmetics industries, and manufactures fine chemicals, printing and photography chemicals, polyester resins, various industrial chemicals and natural antioxidants for the fast growing nutraceuticals market.
Petroleum and Plastics
Although it has established substantial overseas sales, Israel’s oil refinery and petrochemicals industry is not first and foremost export-oriented. Oil Refineries Ltd. (ORL), a government-private sector joint venture, was established to supply the local energy market. ORL manufactures the full range of petroleum products used locally, including gasoline, diesel, naphtha, kerosene, residual fuel oil (for industry), lubrication oils and bitumen. These are produced at its refineries in the Haifa Bay and Ashdod, while subsidiaries produce the main raw materials for the plastics industry. As a result of the company’s sophisticated and efficient processes, ORL generates more than 25% of its $2 billion in revenues from exports. ORL’s refineries have an annual capacity of 13 million tons of crude oil. Emphasis is now being placed on refining more environmentally friendly products, improving the quality of gasoline and reducing the sulfur content of unleaded gasoline from 0.08% to 0.05%. ORL’s main export products include vacuum gas oil, which is produced from high- quality distillates at the company’s new hydrocracker unit.
ORL’s subsidiary Gadiv Petrochemicals manufactures a range of petrochemical products (90% of which is exported) including aromatics and aliphatic solvents. Another ORL subsidiary, Carmel Olefins Ltd., manufactures a range of monomers and polymers for both the local and overseas plastics raw materials markets. These include ethylene, low-density polyethylene, polypropylene and expandable polystyrene (EPS). Israel Petrochemical Industries, also owned by ORL, manufactures similar products including ethylene, polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene. These plastics are used in the full range of contemporary applications used in daily life, from greenhouses to films, packaging to pipes, and in household utensils, toys, furniture, fibers, threads and ropes. Other major manufacturers produce organic products such as PVC, EDC and VCM and inorganic products including chlorine, caustic soda, caustic potash, hydrochloric acid, raw materials and intermediates for the detergent industry, thermosetting, melamine and urea-molding compounds, resins and adhesives, and inorganic pigments, water-based and synthetic paints, polyurethane, epoxies, varnishes, textured coatings and primers.
Gift of the Nile
No oil, but it looks like there is a lot of natural gas under Israel’s Mediterranean waters. Israeli and multinational companies have been drilling and have come up with early indications of huge natural gas reserves that could power local electricity generating plants and industry. Natural gas may sound less exciting than oil, but as a fuel it is cleaner and certainly no more expensive. Conveniently, Israel discovered its first substantial reserves just as the country was gearing up for its first large-scale imports of gas.
While it is premature to say how much gas there is until more exploratory wells have been drilled, there is good reason to suspect that it is plentiful – because neighboring Egypt itself has huge reserves. The Nile River contains organic matter – the basis for gas – which is carried north through Egypt and deposited in the Mediterranean Sea in an area called the Nile Cone. The organic matter, which drifts further north to Israel’s coast, is trapped by sand and pebbles, creating gas reserves there as well.
The Dead Sea is proving to be a rich source of minerals, including potash. The Dead Sea Works is using a method developed by the company to mine these minerals and export them to the world at large.
By its name, the Dead Sea hardly conjures up a sense of prosperity. In Biblical times the desert region, known in Hebrew as the Salt Sea, was largely isolated. The harsh climate, with summer temperatures reaching 45 degrees Celsius in the shade, has made the area largely uninhabitable. But in modern times the Dead Sea, the lowest point on the earth’s surface, has turned into something of a gold mine, its mineral-rich waters producing billions of dollars’ worth of chemicals.
Located at the southwestern corner of the Dead Sea, just 10 kilometres past the ancient fortress of Masada, is one of Israel’s largest industrial complexes. It is owned by Israel Chemicals (ICL), a leading international chemical firm. More than 3,000 industrial workers are bussed in daily over distances of up to 100 kilometres to work at the huge complex. Potash and magnesium chloride are produced at the site from the highly saline waters of the sea, which straddles the border between Israel and Jordan. The riches of the sea have turned Israel and ICL’s Dead Sea Works subsidiary into the world’s fourth largest producer of potash, a leading fertiliser.
In most parts of the world, potash is mined. But Dead Sea Works (DSW) has developed a unique method of extracting the mineral from seawater. The technology is based on the use of evaporation ponds that take advantage of the region’s high temperatures and low humidity. The average annual temperature is 35 degrees Celsius, and rainfall amounts to only 50 millimetres a year. Even in the winter, daytime temperatures rarely fall below 20 degrees Celsius. “The climatic conditions at the Dead Sea enable us to harness the sun and make use of the high level of evaporation to produce potash,” says Oded Harel, manager of operations and process engineering at DSW.
The Dead Sea mining area is crisscrossed by 2-metre-deep evaporation ponds. Each pond is about 6 square kilometres in size, and the ponds are divided into two categories: salt ponds and carnallite ponds. The latter form the basis for the production of the potash.
The salt ponds hold the brine that is not needed in the industrial production process. The carnallite is removed from the harvester ponds by a raft-like harvester developed by DSW. Manned by two-member teams, the harvesters are connected to the shore by a network of cables that allow them to manoeuvre between the various ponds.
The process itself works by suctioning carnallite-rich slurry through an intake valve. The harvester then pumps the slurry into a series of floating pipes that run along the surface of the carnellite ponds to the shore. Two plants based on cold and hot leach-crystallisation processes decompose the carnallite and turn it into potash. The production process continues 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The entire cycle from the harvesting to the actual production takes only five hours.
Potash in grades
“We produce three different grades of potash, and each one is earmarked for a different segment of the market,” says Eyal Yaffe, DSW plant manager in charge of compacting and logistics. The standard potash, easily recognised by its large crystals, is used for direct agricultural applications. It is primarily used in developing countries where potash is distributed by hand. The thin-crystal potash is used for the production of downstream products. The third grade, called “granulated,” is used in the bulk-blending of potash and is produced using a compacting process.
Once production is completed, the potash is stored in huge piles that are clearly visible at the entrance to the extensive complex. “The climatic conditions allow us to store material outside and ship it as market conditions warrant,” says Eli Amon, DSW sales manager. He adds that the size of the potash piles is a clear indication of the state of the market. These days the piles are very low. With a very tight market, potash is shipped out through Israel’s southern Red Sea port of Eilat or the Mediterranean port of Ashdod within a matter of days following production.
“More than 90 percent of our Dead Sea production is exported to about 60 countries in all parts of the globe,” says Amon. The company’s biggest markets are Brazil, China, India and Western Europe. Demand for potash is growing at 2 to 3 percent a year. However growth in demand in Brazil and China is more than double that.
The annual world production of potash is around 45 million tonnes. Israel ranks fourth, after Canada, Russia and Germany. The DSW plant currently produces 3.3 million tonnes of potash annually. The Dead Sea plant is currently producing at full capacity, due to the strong demand worldwide for potash. Over the years the plant has been continuously expanded and is now in the process of increasing production to 3.6 million tonnes. In addition to its plant at the Dead Sea, Israel Chemicals produces 2 million tonnes at plants in Spain and Britain, where the potash is mined using traditional methods.
The Dead Sea has another major advantage. Unlike mines around the world it has an almost unlimited supply of potash. “There are enough minerals in the waters of the Dead Sea to last for more than a thousand years,” predicts DSW operations manager Harel. With those kind of reserves, the Dead Sea will continue to help feed the world’s growing population for centuries to come.
A family affair
Natan Besser’s day begins at the crack of dawn. By 6 a.m. he catches a company bus that picks up workers in Dimona, a town 45 kilometres from the Dead Sea Works. The ride down the winding road leading to the Dead Sea takes just under an hour.
By the time he gets there, the heat is already intense. After suiting up, Besser and his team of 14 workers hop into 4X4 vehicles that take them to the ponds. Two-man teams operate each of the five raft-like harvesters that collect the carnallite that serves as the basis for the production of potash. The other four provide services to the operators.
Besser says that despite the harsh conditions, things have gotten easier over the years. Nowadays everything, including the harvesters, is air-conditioned, he says. But the work schedule is tough. With round-the-clock operation, workers have 12 days on the job and four days off.
But “the company,” as he calls DSW, is sort of a family affair for Besser. His father worked there for 28 years and seven years ago his son joined him. Besser sees DSW as a great place to work and says the company takes care of its workers. “If this weren’t the case, you wouldn’t find so many second- and third-generation family members working here,“ he says.
Mineral Wealth of the Dead Sea
When divine providence opened the great fissure from northern Syria through the Jordan valley to the Dead Sea, there was prepared one of the most remarkable phenomena of the earth. This little inland lake is 140 square miles in area. Its distinctive features are that it lies 1300 feet below sea level, and it has no outlet. Every day the Jordan and lesser streams pour 6,000,000 tons of water into it, and although there is no outlet the level shows practically no variation. The hot and constant sun carries away in vapor as much water AS flows in – no more, no less. But this evaporation does not carry away the mineral atoms drawn from the soil of the surrounding countries by the trickling of water that finds its way into the sea. Thus, for centuries its bed has been a reservoir of mineral matter, which imparts its quality to the water. Though the water does not increase in volume, it has through the centuries been increasing in mineral qualities. It is five times as soft and buoyant as ocean water. No life can exist in it. Through all the centuries nature has been gathering this mineral wealth. The world is now astounded by its immensity. So long as it was held by the Turk no advantage could be taken of it, but now that it has passed into the hands of Great Britain it is to be developed and utilised. The British and Palestine governments have appointed experts to determine its approximate wealth, and their report is almost unbelievable. They value its mineral wealth at 1,190,000,000,000 dollars. The United States is richer than the next five nations of the world, but this sea is almost three times as valuable as the entire wealth of the United States.
A merger has been effected between the leading chemical companies of Great Britain for the exploiting of this wealth. The company is known as “The Imperial Chemicals Ltd.” Wealthy Jews in large number are interested in the merger. It has a content, according to the report of this committee of the leading chemists of the world, of 1,300,000,000 tons of potash, valued at 750,000,000,000 dollars; 853,000,000 tons of bromide, valued at 47.500,000 dollars;
11,900,000,000 tons of salt, valued at 47,500.000 dollars; 81,000,000 tons of gypsum, valued at 1,200,000 dollars: and 22,000,000,000 tons of magnesium chloride, valued at 825,000,000,000 dollars. There are other minerals in smaller quantities. The exploitation, which will commence as soon as arrangements can be made, will be the greatest commercial enterprise ever undertaken by man. It will bring wealth to Palestine and be of great blessing to the world. The soil around the sea is bituminous, and it is possible that vast quantities of oil lie under it. We wonder if this may not be the fulfilment of the Old Testament prophecies concerning the great wealth of Palestine and its people.
One of the provisions of the concession is that the farmers of Palestine are to be furnished nitrates for fertilizers at cost. It is believed that this will result in refertilizing the denuded and neglected soil of Palestine, and made it again a land “flowing with milk and honey.”
Some fear is entertained that this marvelous wealth will tempt the cupidity of Russia and lead to an alliance between that country and the Asiatic peoples, and bring on the great war that has been feared by many. German chemical concerns have tried to gain a partial control of these resources. It will not be easy for the surrounding nations to see Great Britain and Palestine alone reaping such unmeasured wealth. -“The Defender.” Mineral Wealth of the Dead Sea
by George Armstrong
Palestine and Theodor Herzl
In 1896 Austrian journalist and playwright Theodor Herzl (1860-1904) who founded the Zionist movement was the first person to write of “the Jewish Question” when he wrote, “The Jewish State. A modern attempt to solve the JEWISH QUESTION!” All these years the NSDAP has been unjustly blamed for talking about “A final solution to the Jewish Question” when the suggestion was Herzl’s.
His Majesty’s government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of the existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.” – Balfour Declaration.
Mineral Wealth of Dead Sea
The value of the minerals of the Dead Sea is estimated at five trillion dollars. This estimate appears to be optimistic but it is supported in part by the report of the Crown Agents of the British Colonies entitled “Production of Minerals From the Waters of the Dead Sea” (page 2). It is alleged that all copies of this booklet containing this report have been destroyed except those in the British Museum, Colonial office, and House of Commons. This official report estimates the minerals, except oil, in 1925 as follows: Magnesium Chloride, 22,000 tons, value 600 billion dollars; Potassium Chloride, 20,000 tons, value 75 billion dollars; other minerals valued at 1,200 billion dollars; or a total of about three trillion dollars, exclusive of oil (The Palestine Mystery, pages 12 and 13).
This enormous value staggers the imagination. I am unable to appraise the effect on the human race if the Zionists gain undisputed title to it, or if it should be devoted to public use.
This huge concession was first granted by the British Colonial Secretary to the Russian Zionist Moise Novemeysky in 1923 and finally granted on January 1, 1930, by the British House of Lords to “Palestine Potash Limited”, a joint stock company. This company, so far as known, is composed wholly of American, British, and Russian Zionist Jews. Mr. H.H. Klein, a patriotic Jew, states that there are 1500 American stockholders and that they organized themselves into a corporation known as “Palestine Associates Inc.,” with a capital of $400,000,000 and that this group owns 581,000 shares of the parent company. He states that Moise Novemeysky owns 30,000 shares; that Casenove Nominees Ltd., owns 221,075 shares; that Palestine Economic Corporation, dominated by the Warburgs, owns 45,111 shares, and that the Anglo Palestine Bank Nominees owns 42,935 shares. He says also that Palestine Potash Ltd. has three American directors, viz: Benjamin Brodie, Julius Simons, and Robert Szold, whose brother is a member of the banking firm of Lehman Bros.
Mr. H. H. Klein says of the British concession and the protocols:
“The aim of Zionist leaders was to establish a Jewish state in Palestine. Why?
‘Was it in order to fulfill the plan outlined in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, for world conquest; or was it to protect the concession from the exploitation of all the chemical wealth in the Dead Sea in Palestine, estimated at five thousand billion (five trillion) dollars?
“If it is for the purpose of world conquest, then Jews have been fatally deceived, because Zionist leaders and their financier backers maintain that the Protocols are a forgery. If it is for the purpose of extracting chemical wealth from the Dead Sea, then Jews have been shamefully imposed upon because that purpose has never been mentioned by Zionist leaders.
“If the Protocols are a ‘forgery’ whatever that may mean, it is the most remarkable ‘forgery’ ever perpetrated because every step outlined in that amazing document of over 30.000 words, is an accomplished fact. This so-called forgery was published fifty years ago. At that time, the value of the chemicals of the Dead Sea was known to the financial backers of Theodor Herzl who is known as the ‘father of Zionism’.”
The financial backers of Theodor Herzl were M. A. Rothschild & Son of Paris and N. M. Rothschild & Son of London. Mr. Klein confirms the opinion expressed by Henry Ford in The International Jew, viz: That the protocols explain current history. There can be no reasonable question about the authenticity of the protocols and the fact that they were adopted by World Zionist Jewry and that they represent the plan of the Zionist Jews for creating a World Empire. The first and second World Wars were for that purpose and so, likewise, was the Jewish invasion of Palestine. That was also the purpose of the League of Nations and is the purpose of the United Nations – all Zionist enterprises. Mr. Klein says further that the “American Group,” owners of 51,000 shares of Palestine Potash, Ltd., incorporated in 1930 under the name of “Palestine Associates, Inc.,” and that “at least seven of the directors of this corporation are members of the American Jewish Committee.” He says that ex-Governor of New York Herbert H. Lehman has been honorary head of Palestine Economic Corporation for many years and that this corporation “owns banks, water companies, land holding companies, hotels, and agricultural corporations in Palestine.” He says that these facts have been concealed from the Jews and that they have been used as tools by their Zionist leaders. Henry Morgenthau, Jr. is now at the head of this corporation.
The “Balfour Declaration” was made in a letter from Lord Balfour to Lord Rothschild. This same Lord Rothschild was a member of the Zionist International Conference at Bazle, Switzerland in 1897 that adopted the Protocols. This same Lord Rothschild was also a member of the British House of Lords that gave this huge wealth to Palestine Potash Ltd. The Rothschild interests are at the head of political Zionism and they promoted the invasion of Palestine. Their position in our government and financial system is such that they can bring about deflation and a third world war.
A Gigantic Steal
If Palestine has one fourth of its estimated mineral value it will enable the Zionists to control the destiny of the peoples of the world. The Zionist invasion of Palestine is a gigantic steal and an infamous outrage against Christian civilization. Under present circumstances it means a third world war and that the new state of Israeli will line up with the Bolsheviks. The only way to avoid it and to assure permanent peace is to destroy the Rothschild agencies, – alias Zionist Wall Street. It is indeed the best way to restore the solvency of our country and of the world, and to restore constitutional government.
The “Balfour Declaration” to Lord Rothschild and the gift of this fabulous wealth to him and his fellow Zionists is evidence that he and his fellow Zionists then controlled the British Empire. If the British Government were authorized to give it to the Zionists they had the power to keep it or to give it to us as security for our donations, or to give it to the United Nations for the preservation of world peace. They gave it to the war-promoting Zionists for the obvious purpose of promoting Zionism.
Theodor Herzl, of Austria, was the founder of Political Zionism. It was established at a secret convention of Zionist leaders August 29th to 31st, 1897, in Bazle, Switzerland. It was at this convention that the “Bazle Programme” – the Protocols were adopted. Herzl presided at the conference and it was due to his untiring energy and zeal that the conference was called. The object of the Bazle Programme was to unite the scattered Jews of the world into a separate and independent nation and a World Empire. The “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” represent their method of accomplishing this end, and evidently Herzl was one of the authors.
The Zionists revere Herzl as their messiah. They transferred his remains from Austria by airplane and reburied them with pomp and ceremony in Jerusalem. They published a very laudatory “Memorial” of him under the auspices of “The New Palestine,” official organ of the Zionist Organization of America edited by Meyer W. Weisgal, and copyrighted in 1929 by “The New Palestine.” This Memorial contains many laudatory contributions by prominent Jews. It contains also Theodor Herzl’s diary, admitting that it was censored and expurgated by the editors. This diary is an interesting history of Herzl’s effort to arouse the Jews to the importance of nationalization, and of his financial difficulties and sacrifices in doing so.
Palestine was not the ancestral home of the Khazar and Ashkenazim Jews. That is only a pretense for obtaining its mineral wealth and the creation of a Zionist Empire. The Jews have always had good homes in America and all other countries in which they have lived. They are the usurers of the work and have always been. They were designated the aristocrats of Europe by the Zionist leader Samuel Untermeyer. They are not farmers. I have never known or heard of a Jew farmer an, I have lived a long time and farmed in three states, viz: Texas, Mississippi, and Oklahoma. Some of them OWN farms, but they do not work them. There may be some “displaced” Jews but we support them. If given the best farms in America or Palestine they would not work them. They don’t know how to farm and farming in Palestine or America is not their purpose. They farm the Christians, not the land.
The ancestors of the small Sephardic tribe once lived in Asia. but their descendants constitute only about 5% of the present Jewish population. The present day Jews, including the Rothschilds, are either of the Ashkenazi or Khazar tribes. These Jews are and always have been nomadic predatory people. It was a company of these Jews that bought and sold Joseph. They have always been traders and the dealers in slavery and narcotics and usury. The Roosevelt fortune was founded by a Jewish opium smuggler.
A few days after the adjournment of the first Bazle convention, to-wit, on September 3, 1897, Herzl said of it in his dairy
“If I were to subsume the Bazle Congress in one word which I shall not do openly – it would be this: at Bazle I founded the Jewish State” (Diaries of Theodor Herzl, page 149).
They appointed an “inner action committee” at this first Congress and founded the “Jewish Colonial Bank.” He says, (page 151):
“The Bazle Congress represents the creation of the Society of Jews for the Jewish State . . . The work of the next few years will be the creation of the Jewish Company, temporarily called the Jewish Colonial Bank.”
The protocols obviously represent the programme of their secret “Inner Action Committee.”
Kaiser Wilhelm Interested
Herzl first sought the aid of Kaiser Wilhelm. He says of the Kaiser in his diary, October 19, 1898:
“The Kaiser, in the dark uniform of a Hussar, came toward me. I stood still and made a deep bow. He came up to me, almost to the door, and offered me his hand. I believe he said that he was glad to see me, or something like that. I said: ‘Your Imperial Majesty, I am happy to be the recipient of this distinction.’ . . .
“He soon took over the lead and explained why he considered the Zionist movement of worth. Unfortunately I was an embarrassed listener, and I had to exert all my strength in preparing the replies, so that I have not been able to retain all the details. He never mentioned the Jews except as my ‘Landsleute’ – and not in an exactly friendly tone. He had no doubt that we had sufficient money and manpower at our disposal to carry out the colonization of Palestine. Here my attention failed a little, for I was observing my own impression that my three years of work have made of the world ‘Zionism,’ a terme recu, which the Kaiser used freely in speaking with me.
“‘There are,’ he said, ‘among your Landsleute certain elements which it would be well to have immigrate into Palestine. I am thinking, for instance, of those cases where there are a number of usurers among the country people. If these were to take their wealth and settle in the colonies, they would make themselves more useful.’ These were his words, more or less.
“The Kaiser observed that he believed the Jews would set about the colonization of Palestine if they knew that he would keep them under his protection, and that they really would not be leaving Germany.
“I said: ‘Your Excellency, that is purely a matter of money. As a writer I regret to have to say it.’
“I felt my arguments growing stronger and stronger under the encouragement of the Kaiser’s approval” (Pages 154-5).
Herzl later met the Kaiser in Palestine, to-wit, on October 28, 1898. He said of this meeting:
“He laughed, and flashed with his kingly eyes: “‘How are you?’
“‘I thank Your Majesty. I am seeing the country. How has your Majesty’s journey been so far?’”His eyes flashed.
“‘Very hot. But the land has a future.’
“‘At present it is still sick,’ I said . . .
“‘It needs water, much water,’ he said, speaking downward at me.
“‘Yes, Your Majesty. Colonization on a grand scale.’
“He repeated: ‘It is a land of the future.’
“The spectators of Mikveh Israel were utterly dazed. A few of them asked who that had been. The Rothschild administrators looked timid and irritated . . .
“‘The settlements which I have seen, the German as well as those of your Landsleute, may serve as a model of what can be done in this country. The land has room for all. Only provide water and shade. For the native population, too, the colonies can serve as models to be imitated. Your movement, with which I am well acquainted, contains a healthy idea.’. .
“‘Well, you certainly don’t lack the money,” exclaimed the Kaiser jovially, and slapped his whip against his boots. ‘You have more money than all the rest of us.’”
The Kaiser was willing to sponsor the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine as a colony of the German Empire, but that did not fit in with Herzl’s plans. It would have meant that the German government would acquire the mineral wealth of Palestine and Herzl wanted it for the Rothschilds and Zionists and their independent state.
Negotiates with Sultan of Turkey
Failing to make a satisfactory deal with the Kaiser, Herzl sought to acquire Palestine from the Sultan of Turkey, first with the Kaiser’s support and later by direct negotiation with the Sultan’s minister, N. Bey. He first offered Bey 1,000 francs to arrange for an interview with the Sultan. Seeing that was not enough, he offered 20,000 francs. He said of N. Bey in his diary, August 22, 1899:
“At first he was dry, unfriendly, as if he did not know why I had come. Soon I got the truth out – the twenty thousand francs were not enough. He said: ‘Considering your position in the Zionist movement, an audience means a great deal to you. Besides, any banker would offer me twice as much as you did for an audience with the Sultan.’
‘We won’t haggle about this,’ I said. ‘You will get forty thousand.’. .
‘You ought to give this man ten or fifteen thousand francs, to make Stimmung for you.’
“I saw where this was leading to. Money talks. I said to him, almost harshly: ‘I shall give you ten thousand francs in advance, and thirty thousand on the day of the audience. How you use that money is your business. I won’t ask you what you have done with it.’
“He became as soft as butter and said: ‘Done! I’ll have to add some money of my own to it, but the speculation is worth it. I believe I can earn a couple of million on this: and that’s worth a risk” (Pages 164-5; 158-9).
“Herzl said of his interview with the Sultan (page 170-1):
“But this is not enough for me. I told him (the Sultan) through Ibrahim that I was devoted to him because he was good to the Jews. The Jews all over the world were grateful to him. I in particular was ready to serve him in every way possible, naturally not on a small scale – I left that to others – but on a large scale . . .
“Then the Sultan said: ‘I always have been and still am a friend of the Jews. I rely chiefly on Mussulmans and Jews. I haven’t as much faith in my other subjects as in them’ . . .
‘The Public Debt I consider to be the thorn. If this could be removed then Turkey could once more blossom in her strength, in which I believe’. . .
‘Well then,’ I said, ‘I believe I can. But the first and principal condition, a condition of precedent, is absolute secrecy.’
“The ruler lifted his eyes to heaven, placed his hand on his bosom and murmured: ‘Secret, secret!’
“I said, – as from now on I kept the reins of the conversation in my hand – that I could carry through this operation through my friends on all the Exchanges of Europe, if I had the help of His Majesty. But this help had to consist, at the right time, of a mass measure in favor of the Jews, made public in the proper way.
“Ibrahim sucked in with astounded looks the words of his master and translated them with joy. ‘His Majesty has a court jeweler, who is a Jew. He could give anything of a friendly nature to him, to publish in the papers. He also has a Chief Rabbi for the Jews, the Chasham Bashi. He could also tell him.’
“My impression of the Sultan is that he is a weak, cowardly, but thoroughly well-meaning person. I think he is neither treacherous nor cruel, but a deeply unhappy prisoner, in whose name a thieving, infamous and dishonest camarillia commit the most shameful acts . . .
“The dishonesty and bribery which began at the door of the palace and wind up only at the foot of the throne are probably not the worst. Everything is business, and every official is a thief. At least, I hear this on every side, and from what I know of the way things are done, I do not believe this to be a calumny . . .
“I still see him before me, this Sultan of the dying robber kingdom. Small, shabby, with his badly dyed beard – which is probably dyed only once in a week, for the Selamlik. The hook-nose of a clown, the long yellow teeth and the big gap in the upper jaw to the right. The fez drawn down deep over his head, which is probably bald – the protruding ears. The strengthless hands in the big white gloves, and the ill-fitting, big, multicolored cuffs. The bleating voice, the limitation in every word. And that rules! As a matter of fact he rules only in appearance and in name.”
Herzl proposed to lend the Sultan 1,500,000 pounds (about five million dollars) if the Sultan would grant a charter giving the Zionists Palestine. The Sultan, Herzl says, did not know anything about its vast mineral wealth. It was only known to Herzl and the Rothschilds. The editor of the Memorial says in a footnote:
“Herzl will not budge before he has the charter. The Sultan apparently will not budge before he gets money – if then” (Diaries, page 173).
“However, the impasse was partially broken. The Sultan would open his empire to all Jews who wish to become Turkish subjects, but the regions to be settled were to be decided from instances to instances, and Palestine was not to be included. The Company could colonize in Mesopotamia, Syria, Anatolia, but not in Palestine. A Charter without Palestine I refused at once” (Diaries, page 174).
It was obviously the plan of Herzl to found a Zionist Empire; That probably was also the purpose of the Rothschilds and oil rich Jews, and it was the only basis on which Herzl could interest them in his Zionist Empire scheme. This plan was clearly revealed in his diary memo of September 4, 1899, as follows:
“Yesterday, after the opera, I had supper in the Hotel Bristol, with Martin Furth. He told me that the day before he had met N. Bey at the races. The latter had spoken to him very favorably of Zionism. It was not impossible, he said, to win the Sultan over to the idea, as the latter was a friend of the Jews. BUT THE NEWSPAPERS OUGHT NOT TO WRITE THAT WE WANT TO FOUND A JEWISH EMPIRE. N. Bey, said Furth, has been very serious about it. He asked me if I knew him. “Very faintly,” I said” (Diaries, page 165).
Herzl interviews Chamberlain and Rothschild
Herzl approached the British through Lord Rothschild and the British Prime Minister Chamberlain, to-wit: on October 23, 1902. He said in his diary of that date:
“I laid the entire Jewish question before the immobile mask which is Joe Chamberlain. My relations to Turkey,
‘I am in negotiation with the Sultan,’ I said in English.
‘But you know what Turkish negotiations are. If you want to buy a carpet, first you must drink a half dozen cups of coffee and smoke a hundred cigarettes. Then you discuss family stories, and from time to time you speak a few words again about the carpet. Now I have time to negotiate, but my people have not. They are starving in the Pale. I must bring them immediate help.’ And so on. The mask smiled at the carpet story. I then passed on to the subject of the territory which I wanted from England.”
Herzl also said:
“I set my hopes on Chamberlain, whom I shall see next week. He stands at a distance from the whole business, sees it from a higher point – AND DOES NOT KNOW THE VALUE OF THE BIG STRETCH OF LAND FOR WHICH I AM ASKING” (Diaries, page 178).
But the Rothschilds knew the value of the “big stretch of land” for which he was asking. When he and the Kaiser visited Palestine they found the Rothschild agents there (see supra). Lord Walter Rothschild to whom the Balfour Declaration was made, was not at first very friendly to his colonization scheme. Herzl (p. 176) says of his interview with him:
“In England, said Rothschild, there will never be any anti-Semitism, etc. In France, too, it was something else, etc. He does not believe in Zionism. We should never get Palestine, etc. He is an Englishman and wants to remain one. He ‘desires’ me to say this and that to the Alien Commission, and not to say this and the other.
At this point the business became too stupid for me. I had interrupted him a couple of times. But now I began to overshout him in such a way that he was dazed and kept his mouth shut. . .
‘I shall tell the Commission what I think proper and the truth as I see it. That is my habit, and I shall cling to it now, too.’
It was false, I said, that the powers were against our going to Palestine. I have influenced Germany and Russia in our favor. England, I thought, would have nothing against it. I was PERSONA GRATIA with the Sultan.
‘Yes,’ he threw in, ‘The Sultan is naturally friendly to you because you are Dr. Herzl of the Neue Freie Presse.’
‘It would be stupid and arrogant of me,’ I said, ‘to read the Commission a lecture on the characteristics of the real Englishman. I shall simply say what terrible misery there is in the East, and that these people must either get away or perish. The need in Rumania has been known to us since 1897; the Congress petition received no attention. In Galicia it is perhaps even worse. There are seven hundred thousand people there in misery. They also begin to move.
My Lord said: ‘I hope you are not going to say that to the Commission. Or else we shall have restrictions.’
At this point I became massive: ‘Certainly I shall say it. You can count on that.’
Whereupon his jaw dropped, he rang, and called his brother Leopold.
To him he repeated what had been said, and added that in my opinion Jewish charity had merely become a machine for the suppression of the cry of misery . . .
At the same time I shall make a semi-official attempt to get in touch with Lord R. He is in a furious rage against me – perhaps this is the psychological moment for the conclusion of peace. When he was asked in the Commission why he was opposed to calling me, he said that I was demagogue, a windbag.”
But he sold Rothschild on his plan as being the practical to obtain what both of them wanted. He said (Diaries, page 177):
“We went into the dining room, where I met Lord Roseberry’s son and later Alfred, the third Rothschild, a true spiritual child of his father.
“Later, in my Lord’s study, Alfred told me of his very high Austrian and Russian orders. ‘Great, what? Kronenoden, first class.’ The same Alfred asked me what I wanted to do for the Jews. Colonization? Good. But why in Palestine? It sounded so Jewish.
“After the coffee I went over to the writing desk and asked him:
‘Would you like to hear my scheme now?’
“I shoved my chair closer to his better ear and said:
‘I want to get a Charter for Colonization from the English Government.’
‘Don’t say Charter. The word doesn’t sound so good now.’
‘Call it what you like. I want to found a Jewish colony in British territory.’
‘No, I can use only this.. .’ And as there were several others in the room I wrote on a piece of paper: Sinai Peninsula, Egyptian Palestine. Cyprus. And I added: ‘Are you for it?’
“He reflected, grinning, and answered: ‘Very much.’
That was victory; I then added on the piece of paper: STOP THE SULTAN FROM GETTING MONEY.
“He answered: ‘I prevented Rumania from getting money. But here I can do nothing, as the great powers want it. They want to have the railway built.’
“I said: ‘The Sultan offered me Mesopotamia.’
He, astounded: ‘And you refused?’
Baron Rothschild of Paris was Original Zionist Promoter
Baron Edmond Rothschild of Paris, the managing partner of the original M. A. Rothschild & Son banking firm was the main support of the Zionist political movement in the beginning. Herzl says in his diary (page 196):
“For three extraordinarily difficult years they struggled against overwhelming odds, and would surely have been defeated had not a miracle saved them. . .
“The miracle was this: When one of the colonists of Rishon le Zion went to Paris and there saw Baron Edmond Rothschild and told him of the work of the Jewish settlements, the Baron grew so enthusiastic about the colonists that he immediately sent his representative to Palestine to study conditions and to help the settlers with money and advice. From that day on Baron Rothschild’s interest in Jewish colonization has never waned; indeed, this work came to fill his entire life. He is known, and quite properly, as the father of Jewish colonization in Palestine. There is no doubt that it would have been impossible to preserve the early Jewish settlements and to establish new ones had not the Baron generously assisted the colonists at the beginning. He it was who, when the colonists did not know what branch of agriculture to choose, directed them toward wine-growing, by sending them expert instructors and good French vines, and by building large wine-vaults for them. In the first years, moreover, the Baron bought their grapes at a fixed price, thus assuring them of a definite income.”
There can be no doubt about the fact that the principal purpose of Herzl was to nationalize the Zionists and to create a Zionist Empire. The Rothschilds wanted the minerals of Palestine. They knew about the fabulous mineral wealth of the Dead Sea and they wanted it and had taken steps to acquire it before meeting Herzl. Herzl’s “Inner Action Committee” and Jewish Colonial Bank did not supply him with sufficient money for his campaign and he became very much discouraged in the early stages of it.
In April 1899 he says (Diaries, page 162-3):
“While these gentlemen direct affairs, the worries of getting money for the preliminary work devolve on me. The guarantee fund is exhausted; I believe the money is being badly managed. Now H. writes me that he needs another six hundred to one thousand pounds.”
“Never was a greater task undertaken with less adequate means.
“Tomorrow I must again ask pardon of my ‘chiefs’ for the leave of absence I have taken without their permission. Who knows how long they will let me carry on in this way?
“The movement demands my constant travel; and there is no doubt about it that the Neue Freie Presse can dismiss me for neglect of duty, ‘with all the respect in the world for difference of opinion’. This pitiful clash of duties wearies me, unnerves me and wears me out more than anything else.”
He says on August 23, 1899 (Diaries, page 163-4):
“Je La Connais Aussi. My work will look much more marvelous when people will get to know with what money worries I had to struggle as a result of my efforts of Zionism.
“I miss at every turn the fifty thousand kronen which I have sunk in the movement: the lack of the money makes me less free than ever in my relations to the Neue Freie Presse.”
He appears to have been disillusioned by November 9, 1899. He says (Diaries, page 166):
“This is a good lesson for me. I suppose it would be even worse if I were completely ruined.
‘Put not your trust in Princes –
They are an eternal delusion’
is something I might well say about the ‘help’ of the German Kaiser.
“But when I think of my followers, so easily prone to rebellion, I can add the end of the verse;
‘He that cries Hosannah for you today
Tomorrow will cry: Crucify!’
“And, indeed, I put my trust neither in Princes, nor in the people, but in myself.”
And on May 1, 1900, he says (Diaries, page 167):
“I have a first class epitaph for myself:
‘He had too high an opinion of the Jews.’”
But after obtaining the support of the Rothschilds his spirits were revived. He records on June 13, 1901 (Diaries, page 172):
“Society is interested in me. I am a social curiosity, a dish; people come to meet Dr. Herzl.
“Yesterday Sir Francis Montefiore was here with several ladies and gentlemen. There were Princess Lowenstein, Lady Jane Taylor, and others whose names I have forgotten. Also Gilbert Farquhar, lord and actor.
“I shall use Princess Lowenstein, in order to reach the King. For they all invited me. Lady Jane was present as spectator at the last Congress and said her daughters envied her because she was lunching with me.”
It appears from Herzl’s diary that the Rothschilds had agents on the ground in Palestine when he met the Kaiser there on October 29, 1898 for he records the fact that “The Rothschild administrators looked taunt and irritated.” They no doubt had other plans for obtaining the mineral wealth of the Dead Sea and feared that the presence of Herzl and the Kaiser would interfere with them. It was necessary for Herzl to sell Lord Rothschild on his colonization scheme as being the surest and best method to reach their goal.
When Herzl sold his plan of conquest to Lord Walter Rothschild, managing partner of N. M. Rothschild & Son and managing director of their Bank of England, his financial troubles were over. There was no longer any need for his colonial bank. N. M. Rothschild & Son took over the financing and management of Herzl’s World Empire scheme and Herzl became their lieutenant. Herzl is now dead but the perpetual Rothschild partnership never dies. The two enormousy rich partnerships of M. A. Rothschild & Son of Paris and N. M. Rothschild & Son of London then and now control the gold and press of the world with minor exceptions, and the economy of the people of the world. It was to Lord Rothschild that Lord Balfour wrote his note promising Palestine. It was the agents of the Rothschilds that wrote our Federal Reserve Act. It was the agents of the Rothschilds that inveigled us into two wars and established the Zionist United Nations. The Rothschilds control the economy of the people of the world and seek to enslave them.
The Protocols represent the program of the Zionist “Inner Action Committee” then and now. They are the program of the Rothschilds. As bigoted and cruel and satanic as they are, they are not any more so than the Talmud and the Zionist Politburos of Moscow and Wall Street. They are rounded upon the Talmud and breathe its spirit. They were obviously written, at least in part, by Theodor Herzl himself. He was a very adroit and cunning man, a facile writer and a master of intrigue and deception as revealed by his diaries and other writings. But there is no mention of them in his dairy. The Zionists have sought to suppress them. If Herzl had actually referred to them, his Zionist editors would have omitted the reference.
The rich Zionists do not want Palestine as a “home” but for it mineral wealth, estimated at five trillion dollars. It is reported that they have a few collective farms patterned after the Soviet system and that they live in the cities and employ the Arabs to do the work. Their ancestral home propaganda is only camouflage, a smoke screen, to hide their real purpose. The majority of the are contented to live in the countries in which they reside, as their refugees to remain in idleness at our expense in German homes (given them by President Truman’s order) until they can migrate to America.
Wealth of Palestine does not belong to Zionists
This enormous mineral wealth belongs to the Allies of World War I by right of conquest. It did not belong to the British – who were only its custodians by virtue of a mandate. The Zionists stole these minerals by the newly created and recognized state of Israeli. Theft is an ugly word but it forcibly expresses the truth. Lord Balfour knew nothing about these minerals when made his conditional promise. He did not promise a state and the minerals of Palestine, but, based on his restricted promise, the Zionists have created a state which includes the minerals within its boundaries. But Herzl and the Rothschilds knew about these minerals when they sought the “home,” and as early as 1897.
We need these minerals for our national defense and we must repudiate this concession and recover them for the use and benefit of ourselves and our Allies of World War I. Moreover, their enormous wealth is sufficient to restore the solvency of the British and ourselves and our other Allies. The recovery of these minerals together with the destruction of Zionist Wall Street will establish the peace of the world and it will probably be a permanent peace. There is no other way. The Rothschilds must be banished and their ill-gotten wealth confiscated and devoted to the public good. herzl.htm
“This will be a PERPETUAL source of wealth for the NATION that CONTROLS the DEAD SEA.”
The Dark History Of Modern Day Zionism
The modern day movement of Zionism is most visibly traced back to a man by the name of Theodor Herzl.
Theodor Herzl in Basel, 1897.
Known as “the father of Zionism” Herzl was a Jewish Austro-Hungarian journalist who wrote “Der Judenstaat” (The Jewish State) in 1896 which proposed the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine (modern day Israel) to avoid growing prejudice toward Jews in Europe.
The pamphlet (later published as a book) gained widespread attention, which included the support of a Christian reverend named William Hechler (known as the first “Christian Zionist) who believed “the second coming of Christ” depended on the Jews return to “their” homeland.
Hechler was well connected and managed to introduce Herzl to German royalty, which although did not gain him access or promise to a future homeland for the Jews, it did serve its purpose in gaining more support amongst the public for the cause of Zionism, which is to say the movement for the establishment of a Jewish homeland. Although this cause seems noble enough on the surface, as you continue to read you will find it is much more questionable than what we have been led to believe to say the least.
Herzl and his affiliates were offered Uganda by the British  and even Mesopotamia by the sultan  of the Ottoman empire (Middle East Turkish empire) but turned them down. Of course, we could argue these options were turned down by Herzl because Palestine is the “Holy land” from which he and his supporters feel entitled based on an ancient “promise” in the Bible. This argument, however popular it may be, is simply not accurate. According to Herzls own words written in his diary whilst seeking financial support from the powerhouse banking family of the Rothschilds, “I can only use this… Sinai peninsula, Egyptian Palestine. Cyprus.” Herzl then asked Lord Rothschild “Are you for it?” who in turn grinned and answered “very much.”  From this we quickly learn that it is not the “promised land” Herzl and his affiliates are after but an area, presumably one of geostrategic importance and judging by the money minded Lord Rothschilds response, rich in natural resources.
But what could this of been about then if it is not the “promised land”? According to Colonel Curtis Dall, author of “Israel’s Five Trillion Dollar Secret” as well former employee of Wall streets Lehman Bros. banking firm and son in law of former president Franklin D. Roosevelt;
“The well veiled objective of the Zionists backed by the Rothschilds financial interests was to acquire valid title to the Dead sea and its vast, inexhaustible deposits of potash and other valuable minerals, estimated by experts to be worth several thousand billion dollars.”
While there is no way to confirm if this really was their true objective, it was reported back in August 27, 1927 by “the Evening tribune” under the title “Dead sea to yield trillion in riches” that a
“technical report of the Dead sea minerals gives the following estimate of contents and values. Potash: $70, 000,000,000; Bromide: $260,000,000,000; Salt $17,000,000,000; Gypsum: $120,000,000,000; Magnesium chloride: $523,000,000,000.” 
This assessment, according to the Evening tribune was made by “skilled geologists” after General Edmund Allenby captured Jerusalem in December 1917. In addition to these findings it was reported by “Popular Science” in Septemeber of 1929 that Dr. Georges Claude discovered $50,000,000,000 worth of gold contained in the dead sea. It is also worth mentioning that the Rothschilds had their agents on the ground long before any of those assessments were conducted  and when one considers the banking families legendary “know how” of staying 2 steps ahead of everyone, it is not so far fetched to imagine they were well aware of this in advance. It is also interesting that Herzl at first was met with resistance by the House of Rothschild, this as we know now changed, perhaps due to Herzls persistence and gain in public support, thus proving himself a useful instrument.
Irrespective of the information presented here advocates of Zionism often claim that Israel or “the promised land” historically belong to the Jewish people. This belief, however popular, is once again inaccurate. According to the Bible, the document from which these claims emanate, Abram/Abraham, the reputed father of Issac (Israel), was born in Ur Kasdim in Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq), not Canaan (today Israel). 
“However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you.”[Deuteronomy 20:16-17 ]
The writers claims, if viewed objectively and free of religious conviction, amount to the work of a propaganda specialist justifying imperialism. This is especially true if the author really is Moses, who was Jewish.To believe in a god that calls for the genocide of a people and the murder of innocent children and babies [1 Samuel 15:2-3] sounds much more like the product of the mind of a warmonger of those times than that of a divine Being with everlasting mercy. [Psalm 100:5] Yet despite simple logic, morality and reason this tale has been repeatedly used by those less informed to justify the illegal takeover of Palestine which continues to this day. Because I pride myself, however, in having an open mind and talking to people in “their language”, I say to those of religious conviction to consider the words written in Revelations 2:9 which are reportedly Jesus’
“I know your afflictions and your poverty–yet you are rich! I know the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.”
Whatever you may believe, please consider what has been presented before you from an objective and detached perspective. Imagine there are no flags involved, skin colors, religions, etc. just ethics and morality guided by that moral compass we all presumably have deep within.
This, however, is not where the troubles between Israelis and Palestinians began but instead can be traced to the shady dealings of the British imperialists who, in pursuit of victory through different alliances in WW1, both promised the Arabs the land of Palestine (through “Lawrence of Arabia” who was so ashamed of these deliberate lies became suicidal according to his own diary and the McMahon – Hussein agreement) and the Zionists through the Balfour declaration (which is another story in its own right, one that will have enormous ramifications on propagated history).
The Balfour declaration addressed to Lord Rothschild.
This is where the roots of the conflict today can be traced. This, however, does not even begin to scratch the surface on the terrorism that has been used on the Palestinian population to remove them from their homeland. I leave you with a documentary made by a former Israeli soldier that documents the history of the crimes against the Palestinian people and will also demonstrate that the terrorism, which is so often reported by mainstream media on the Palestinian side is simply blowback and the result of a much more sinister root cause.
In conclusion I would like to add that the average Israeli citizen is not necessarily a party to these crimes nor is the average Jew, they have simply been manipulated through propaganda to believe they are the “good guys” and the outside world don’t understand (which is partly true). Throughout history it has always been the actions of the elite and to blame an entire people only serves to reinforce the divides which allow us to be so easily manipulated and ruled over. Awareness is the key, along with understanding and cooperation because as cliche as it may sound. united we stand, divided we fall. The average person is a moral human being and Israelis are no exception here. But, just as it was so in South Africa during apartheid, the elites propagate an entirely different world view and dehumanize the opposition, as the saying goes, “He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.”
Make no mistake about it my friends mankind is on the verge of the greatest conflict of all time and that conflict is not between races nor religions but between the elite and the rest of us. The question is what are you doing in the present to help change the future? If not you then who, if not now then when?
Israel is in the final throes of their very public suicide
Which was precipitated by her latest attack on Gaza.
Israel has been chewing on their victims in Gaza and all the nations that surround them for over 66 years: To the point where they have backed themselves into this final corner, from which there will be no escape.
“This is when it’s going to start getting bloody not only for Israel’s enemies, but for Israel itself. They will be despised by most of the world for what they have done to the Palestinians and Muslims will feel they have nothing to lose by using any means necessary to destroy Israel for fear they will be next.
It also appears that America soon will be locked into its own civil war after the next major orchestrated event along with the ensuing collapse of the dollar and will therefore lose their position as Israel’s attack dog against the Arab world. They will be too busy killing each other.
The Zionists continue to try and bring Russia into the conflict by destabilizing the countries around them. But once again, America is going to have its own problems soon and their failed occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan prove that they really have no chance against Russia.
The problem I see that Israel is going to have before long is that they are running out of “allies” to pit against their enemies which is literally everyone else on the planet. They are going to have to face a world that despises them. And they will have to face it alone.
What Israel fails to realize is that the fate of Palestine will eventually become their own. If their psychopathic genocidal agenda is ever fully accomplished, Israel is going to have to deal with the wrath of their enemies and their previous allies will no longer be of value due to their own internal strife. Also, once their allies realize they were only being used as fodder for Zionist supremacy, they too will become enemies.”
While the comments above are only just now beginning to form, the ultimate outcome for Israel & Washington cannot be denied for much longer: Because far too much blood has already been blatantly spilled, in far too many nations, to ignore the truth behind Israel’s continuing crimes against humanity.
Ukraine was supposed to be ‘the confirming and triumphant act” to seal the final-solution over the Palestinians while setting the global-stage to attack Russia as well. In fact that war crime too is entering its final solution. Instead of victory in Ukraine, there is about to be another colossal blunder by USI that will create an unbridgeable schism between the arrogant and would be Western conquerors and the rest of the planet—which is long overdue!
“What Israel fails to realize is that the fate of Palestine will eventually become their own. If their psychopathic genocidal agenda is ever fully accomplished, Israel is going to have to deal with the wrath of their enemies and their previous allies will no longer be of value due to their own internal strife. Also, once their allies realize they were only being used as fodder for Zionist supremacy, they too will become enemies…
…The end of Palestine will be the anchor that inevitably takes Israel down with it. But unfortunately, this could also bring Pike’s apocalyptic vision closer to fruition.
Only when we fully understand that all religions separate us from the true spirituality that connects us to everyone and everything will we not fall into their final trap; a one world religion that will be even worse than the ones we have now.
If that is possible.” –Zen Gardner
Israel and USI continue to overlook the inescapable fact that everything in this world is connected and always has been!
So when Israel or USI continually demands totally separate rules for themselves as opposed to any rules that apply to any other people on the planet—then that blatant outrage can never be tolerated for long.
All people have the right to defend themselves from invaders. Every person has the right of return to the place of their birth, regardless of shallow self-serving political rules: Rules that were falsely created to conform to the fleeting political whims of conquerors that were supposed to be guardians, according to International law.
No nation has ever had “the right” to ‘Genocide’ any other people: This is especially heinous when the victims of Genocide now run the gambit from newborn infants all the way up through the aged and infirm, and all of this is outlawed by International Conventions.
The assumptions behind the current war-crimes surrounding both Gaza and Ukraine are even more egregious when they’re seen in contrast to how Israel claims to have been treated during WWII, along with their nuclear-blackmail of nations and extortions of so many other people, which Israel has been living on, ever since the end of the Second World War.
If this image is to be denied, then the people of the planet must take charge and end this threat.
Otherwise the world as we know it will end!
The outrageous policies of total lies and deceptions that both USI & Israel have continuously used, to prop up their threadbare policies over the last 66 years, are still screaming for resolution—perhaps now more than ever!
So when various religions and UN-NATO war crimes begin to join in these illegal wars, coupled with American Advisors being sent to Kiev: The world can clearly foresee another unnecessary Vietnam, or possibly Libya, on top of this NEO-Nazi invasion of the broken nation of Ukraine.
Americans have chosen to remain blind to what’s really taking place, but neither the rest of the world, nor the various religions being threatened by this global aggression, are willing to surrender to this hideous call for:
“Full Spectrum Dominance by Any Means Necessary”
This overreach will obviously end both Israel and USI, along with whatever chaos that will befall the world, because too many let this go too far and now there will be CONSEQUENCES for those who engineered this worldwide disaster. And this time there will be no escape for any of these blood-drenched Barbarians…
WW~Notes: The predictability of Israel’s response against their neighbors, and Hamas, for a crime that’s yet to be proven from evidence or by science is typical for the most racist country ever known to exist.
Three kidnapped Israeli teens, from L-R: Eyal Yifrach, 19, Naftali Frenkel, 16, and Gil-ad Shaar, 16. (photo credit: Times of Israel)
As I posted before, the so-called “kidnapping of three Jew students”, as the Jew-controlled media has been describing the incident for the last two weeks – shows the usual marks of an Israeli false flag operation to preparing the groundwork for a major military operation against its neighbors. If you still believe that Israeli Jews would not kill fellow Jews or hurt their friends who feed them – then just remember how the Zionist regime murdered 100,000 Sephardi youths by experimenting radiation effects on them in the 1960s – or how they murdered American crew at the USS Liberty.
As soon as the IOF released the news – Benjamin Netanyahu and his hawkish Jew ministers ranted unanimously: “They killed our boys and we wouldn’t rest until Hamas is completely destroyed.” However, anyone who is familiar with Zionist bullies – they always meant killing civilians and destruction of infrastructure by carpet-bombing. In reality, Jewish soldiers are only good for killing unarmed Arab youth and children. They proved it in their invasion of Lebanon in Summer 2006.
Netanyahu repeated his usual rant without coming-up with a single proof that Hamas fighters were involved in the disappearance and murder of the three Jew settlers. He called the incident: “abducted and murdered in cold blood by human animals”.
Zionist defense minister Gen. Moshe Ya’alon stated that the Zionist regime sees Hamas as “responsible for the kidnapping and murder, and they know we will settle the score with them.” Tzipi Livni, justice minister and former Mossad “sex-pot” said, “we will continue to strike forcefully against Hamas, for the sake of the future security of Israel.” The housing minister Uri Ariel called for the construction of more illegal Jewish settlements on Palestinian lands in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Golan Heights.
Israeli air-force has carried out missile attacks on more than 34 targets inside Gaza to terrorize the civilian population since Monday. In the West Bank, the Israeli army killed 16-year-old Yusef Abu Zaga in Jenin after it entered the city to make arrests.
As part of collateral punishment, Israeli High Court has approved the destruction of Ziyad Awad’s home. He is accused on murdering a Jewish settler, but not convicting by an Israeli court. Jewish soldiers also demolished two houses belonging to the “kidnapping suspects”.
Susan Abulhawa, a Palestinian-American writer and author, explains western hypocrisy over Israeli crimes as follows:
It does not matter that no one knows who murdered the Israeli teens. It seems the entire country is calling for Palestinian blood, reminiscent of American southern lynching rallies that went after black men whenever a white person turned up dead. Nor does it matter that these Israeli teens were settlers living in illegal Jewish-only colonies that were built on land stolen by the state mostly from Palestinian owners from the village of el-Khader. A huge portion of the settlers there are Americans, mostly from New York, like one of the murdered teens, who exercise Jewish privilege to hold dual citizenship; to have an extra country no matter where they’re from, one in their own homeland and one in ours, at the same time that the indigenous Palestinians fester in refugee camps, occupied ghettos, or boundless exile.
Palestinian children are assaulted or murdered every day and barely do their lives register in western press. While Palestinian mothers are frequently blamed when Israel kills their children, accused of sending them to die or neglecting to keep them at home away from Israeli snipers, no one questions Rachel Frankel, the mother of one of the murdered settlers. She is not asked to comment on the fact that one of the missing settlers is a soldier who likely participated in the oppression of his Palestinian neighbors. No one asks why she would move her family from the United States to live in a segregated, supremacist colony established on land confiscated from the native non-Jewish owners. Certainly no one dares accuse her of therefore putting her children in harms way.
Saeb Erekat is chief Palestinian negotiator for the PLO.
During nine months of negotiations, Israeli officials have constantly questioned our ability to make peace. World leaders visiting Tel Aviv have been faced with rhetorical questions like “Shall we make peace with Gaza or the West Bank?” or statements like “Mahmoud Abbas does not represent all Palestinians.”
Last week, after we announced our national reconciliation agreement, Israel contradicted its own argument: suddenly peace was impossible due to Palestinian unity.
During the early 1980s, Israel’s excuse was the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s refusal to recognize Israel. In 1988, we recognized Israel on 78 percent of historical Palestine, a deeply difficult and historic concession. Twenty-six years later, the number of Israeli settlers within the remaining 22 percent has tripled. Next, Israel’s excuse was lack of Arab recognition.
In 2002, the Arab League introduced the Arab Peace Initiative, offering recognition from 57 Arab- and Muslim-majority countries in exchange for Israel’s respect for UN resolutions. Israel’s response? More settlements. Most recently, the Israeli government came up with a further qualification — that we should recognize Israel as a Jewish state, safe in the knowledge that this could not be accepted. Rather than being afraid of not being recognized, it seems Israel is afraid of recognition.
Today, Netanyahu and those representing him, including Lapid, Yaalon, Lieberman, Bennett and Ariel, are creating a new excuse to avoid the necessary decisions for peace. This Israeli government, which continues its settlement activities all over Palestine, is trying to blame national reconciliation for its own failure to choose peace over apartheid.
First and foremost, reconciliation is an internal affair. Not a single party in Netanyahu’s government has recognized Palestine. Nor have we asked them to. Political parties do not recognize states. Governments do.
Secondly, reconciliation and negotiations are not mutually exclusive. Reconciliation is a mandatory step in order to reach a just and lasting peace. The agreement ratifies the PLO’s legitimacy to negotiate with Israel, honors all Palestinian commitments and obligations towards international law and previous agreements and calls for the formation of a national consensus government comprising independent professionals. This government is not going to negotiate with Israel: its sole mandate will be to prepare for elections, provide services and build institutions.
Palestinian reconciliation can be rejected only by those who aim to perpetuate the status quo. This is precisely what the government of Israel has been doing during nine months of negotiations: killing 61 Palestinians, advancing more than 13,000 units in Israeli settlements, conducting almost 4,500 military operations on Palestinian land, demolishing 196 Palestinian homes and allowing more than 660 settler terror attacks against Palestinians.
Being consistent with its policies on the ground, Netanyahu’s government has refused to recognize the 1967 border or even put a map on the table proposing Israel’s idea of its final borders. Netanyahu has ensured that he is unable to do this by surrounding himself with the most extremist sectors in Israel, including the settler movement, from which he selected his foreign minister, housing minister and the Knesset speaker.
In fact, 28 out of 68 members of his government reject the two-state solution entirely, while others “accept it with reservations,” meaning something very different to two states as stipulated under international law. Israel’s claim that negotiations have been halted due to Palestinian reconciliation is completely disingenuous.
Frankly, it is difficult to understand how anyone could expect us to negotiate with such a government. And yet we have, in good faith, offering concession after concession for the sake of peace. Once again, we have held up our end of the bargain. Once again, the Israeli government has not. The truth is simple: Israel refuses to negotiate sincerely because, as long as the status quo is so beneficial to it, Israel has no interest in a solution.Without firm signals from the international community, Netanyahu’s occupation and colonization policies are incentivized.
With Palestine’s new international status, we will continue shaping our country as a peace-loving nation that respects human rights and international law, a commitment already assumed during the announcement of national reconciliation. This includes our right to make use of international forums in order to end Israeli violations and achieve the fulfillment of our long overdue rights.
Meanwhile, the ruling coalition of Israel should stop wasting its energy on excuses and start realizing that apartheid is not a sustainable option. Israel’s rejection of Palestinian national unity has little to do with Hamas and a lot to do with its own unwillingness to do what is needed for a just and lasting peace.
The views expressed in this article are the author’s and do not necessarily reflect Ma’an News Agency’s editorial policy.
Reporter John Lyons shows clear evidence that Israeli settlers in the West Bank regularly attack Palestinian school children, knowing the authorities will not intervene. He also discovers there are two legal systems operating. One for Israeli children and one for young Palestinians. It’s an impossible situation that may provide temporary security for Israel, but in the long term may well breed a new generation of Palestinians prepared to do anything to gain retribution.
Diplomatic immunity usually matters in most places in the world that is unless you are dealing with Israelis.
Tel Aviv has little regard for diplomats, even from the EU as Israeli soldiers rough up the Europeans who were trying to supply aid to Palestinians in the occupied territories that Israel wants for itself.
As Tel Aviv grabs more land and even mistreats diplomats, the West closes its eyes to Israeli crimes. What is it about Tel Aviv that makes most of Western countries to turn a blind eye to Israeli crimes and acts against international law?
WW~Notes II: This article contains a plethora of mass speculation regarding the identity of the perpetrators responsible for the ongoing bloodshed in Syria.
From – NODISINFO.COM
This post is an attempt to find some sensible explanation for the degree of brutality being committed against the Syrian people, which is reminiscent of the brutality committed against the people of Palestine by the Zionist mob.
Who really is responsible for the ruthless murder of the people of Syria?
After failing to do so for centuries, are the Syrian people really killing each other, dividing each other up by sects and then murdering and destroying each other? If so, why, now after countless centuries of refusing to do so?
No one doubts that people from primarily Muslim-inhabited countries are involved in the terrorist operations. Yet, who orchestrated it? Who is backing it, since, now, it has been confirmed that this is not an internal rebellion of the Syrian people fighting against their own government. Rather, the source for the intervention and slaughter is exterior to the country, and the evidence traces this source to and Israeli entity, along with its American lap-dog, the Obama White House.
Regardless, only zealots would brutally and senselessly murder people in cold-blood, whether military personnel or civilians. Who are these zealots? Are they really devout Muslims? Or, are they largely common criminals who are paid a hefty wage—mere mercenaries—to commit these crimes?
Only people with absolute disregard for humanity would do so, or, those who take pleasure in the taking of another person’s life. Or, the Zionists, who have a history of slaughtering innocents in vast numbers to achieve their wretched aims. Or, all of the above.
Could it really be fundamentalist Muslims? How? One of the fundamentals of Islam is to never shed blood, that is unless in retribution for a murder or in the defense of a person’s safety, or in legitimate warfare in the fight against aggression. To actually slaughter people for mere thrills or for pay: not only is this banned but it is the highest crime a human being can commit.
What about slaughtering a fellow Muslim? Completely prohibited: results in the permanent residence in hellfire.
What about killing people because of their religious affiliations? Banned, absolutely. A Muslim is commanded never to even enter a Christian or Jew’s house without authorization and never to steal or usurp such a one’s assets or religious devices.
What about surrounding a village of civilians and attacking it? This is banned to such a degree it is not worthy of mention.
What about the killing of innocents in warfare; it’s war, after all; there will be collateral damage. Even so, it is prohibited, that is according to the Prophet of Islam, “Do not kill (in battle) women and children or the elderly, and never kill religious scholars or clergymen.
What about the destruction of infrastructure, private property, public property, government facilities, and more? Prohibited, utterly.
What about the use of poison gas especially in desperate situations where the ‘resistance’ is losing miserably against the established army? Completely and categorically prohibited; no questions asked.
Then, too, what of the issue of violating women? Can women be used and abused, even raped, merely to gratify the sexual desires and passions of a rebel army? This is prohibited by Islam and is, if done, merely another form of adultery-fornication, which is punishable by extreme disciplinary action.
What about slaughtering people based strictly on their faith, for instance, if they are Christian or other and refuse to ‘convert’ to Islam? It is sworn by God Himself, a violation of the most extreme degree, where any basic reading of the Qur’aan proves the degree of this crime, that is “There shall be no compulsion—no force—in (matters of) religion.”
What about mutilation of corpses and cannibalism? It is absolutely banned on the battlefield directly and categorically by the Prophet Muhammad.
So, thus, the murderers of Syrians, most of whom are non-Syrian, are not by definition Muslims. Rather, they are anti-Muslims. So, again, who are they?
Are they actually foreign mercenaries or are they led by them? Surely, these terrorists work on behalf of both the Israeli entity and the American government. Another reason despite any of their ritual practices that in no way can they be actual Muslims.
The pictures will tell-all. Such individuals could hardly be human. Not only do they kill military and security personnel, but they also kill all kinds of people, not just by shooting a rocket or mortar at them but directly: in cold-blood and in some cases in the most ruthless, brutal way conceivable.
Who does this? America’s and Israel’s espionage agencies? The Death Squad element? These elements do have a history of this kind of brutality to create fear and oppression in the population, the purpose in part to cause the population to succumb to the mercenary army and halt all resistance.
For the Zionists it worked in Palestine, assisting these evil ones’ plot to finally conquer the region.
It is also being used in Syria, but, here, it is not entirely working.
Let’s examine the individuals who are perpetrating this bloodshed in such a vile, brutal manner. All of them must be analyzed: for the sake of humanity’s future.
The Times Of Israel, a great promoter of the terrorists’ activities, provided this picture, claiming it is a Syrian rebel in Aleppo.
Israeli news journals seemingly have better access to such imagery and corresponding stories than any other media outlets. Is this person really a Syrian, or is he a Mossad plant? Regardless, the photo is a set-up; note how the gun is hanging from the wall. The weapon appears to be brand-new and is likely American issue.
Whether an Israeli or a person from a Muslim country any killing such as this one has done is on the responsibility of the Israeli entity and the Americans, as well as the UK’s Cameron government, the sources for such weapons and ammo.
This, of course, is Chris Harroun, that last name meaning “Aaron,” who has been promoted by the Zionist-controlled media as some kind of good Samaritan Muslim convert who went to Syria to help the rebels’ cause. He is none other than a CIA-Mossad operative, no doubt about it, there to train the terrorists for the attempted conquest of Syria. There is nothing Muslim or Islamic about him.
Note, though, that as part of the fake he raised a beard. (<===WW~-have no idea what the author is attempting to convey in the previous sentence.) Also, he has been given leniency in the court case against him, no real charges, just a so-called plea bargain, where he is now, essentially, free.
Once again, Harroun is an American-paid mercenary agent who was in Syria with full cooperation of the Obama White House, in fact, under its control.
Now, for hard proof of Israeli and American mercenary moles in Syria there is this.
Who could possibly say these men are ‘Arabs’ or North Africans?
This is virtually 1000% confirmation that this man is an Israeli agent, either an Israeli resident or an American Zionist, dual national. He looks Israeli and it is stated here as so unless proven otherwise. Regardless, both these men are seemingly the leaders and trainers of this group of terrorists.
Make no mistake about it there is nothing Semitic or Arabic about this individual. Nor is he a Muslim or Islamist. This Israeli spy is busted as a cohort to a mass murderer and is guilty of war crimes. He must be hunted down and dealt with immediately.
His collaborator in crime with the baseball hat could either be another Israeli mole or could also be an American agent, a CIA spook. He could also be an IDF Mahyudi monster, but, again, he surely is not an Arab.
There is no doubt that some of the mercenary ‘rambos’ arise from various non-Western nations. Yet, still, how many of these groups of mercenaries are infested with Israeli and American agents? Note that some of these men have had their faces blurred out. Also, is the tall man with the long rifle a Syrian, North African, or possibly an Israeli?
Ultimate proof of Israeli and US State Department (Zionist, CFR and more) crimes
Hard evidence, though, of Rambo-style American-Israeli-source terrorists is found in the following image:
It is the Rambo incarnate himself, murderous and unabashed, displaying himself before the whole world, the commander and trainer of this motley crew of mercenary killers.
A cold-blooded American mercenary leading the pack, not a Muslim.
Look at the eyes, mere slits, cold and calculating. This man has no hesitation to commit murder, causing every conceivable great destruction and decimation in the land.
His forehead is small (low mentation), and his face is widest at the temples (propensity for destructiveness). Let him rot in hell for all the crimes he committed. Yet, who really is behind him? It is not merely the Israelis but it is also a number of America’s most powerful people:
It’s none other than that arch-Zionist apologist, crime syndicate politician and criminal fraudster John “the warmonger” McCain. These men have already been proven to be killers and also kidnappers, for instance, two of the pictured have been proven to have kidnapped some 12 Shiite pilgrims.
McCain and Obama want to provide material support, weapons, and also military strikes in support of the terrorists, because the “terrorrists are them.” In other words, many of the men on the ground leading the operation are spies and mercenaries put into this role by the U.S. government and, more secretively, by the Israeli cabal.
This is the ultimate proof that the carnage, devastation, and the absolute and brutal murder suffered by the Syrian people is an Israeli/American plot. It is also proof that much of the brutality, even the kind of inhumane slaughter—the war crimes, the assassination of captives, including captured soldiers—originates from the Israeli entity and the Obama government and that the ‘Arabs’ and ‘Muslims’ in the rebel ranks are merely a proxy militia. It is a militia created by the Israelis and aided and abetted by the Obama White House, which now has on its head the deaths of some 120,000 Syrians, brutally killed in such a monstrous degree, that it clearly establishes both McCain and Obama as war criminals.
WW~Notes: It’s nice to see, at least, partial truth coming from Counterpunch. There are many obvious lies and untruths in the attached article regarding Jews, yet, it is still noteworthy and worth the read. Seems as though even the ultra-Conservatives are not entirely behind Israel’s war drums against Syria, which will inevitably lead to Iran.
by JEAN BRICMONT and DIANA JOHNSTONE
The past ten days have seen what could be the start of an historic turning point away from endless war in the Middle East. Public opinion in the United States, in harmony with the majority of people in the world, has clearly rejected U.S. military intervention in Syria.
But for this turn away from war to be complete and lasting, greater awareness is needed of the forces that have been pushing the United States into these wars, and will surely continue to do so until they are clearly and openly rejected.
An American friend who knows Washington well recently told us that “everybody” there knows that, as far as the drive to war with Syria is concerned, it is Israel that directs U.S. policy. Why then, we replied, don’t opponents of war say it out loud, since, if the American public knew that, support for the war would collapse? Of course, we knew the answer to that question. They are afraid to say all they know, because if you blame the pro-Israel lobby, you are branded an anti-Semite in the media and your career is destroyed.
One who had that experience is James Abourezk, former Senator from South Dakota, who has testified: “I can tell you from personal experience that, at least in the Congress, the support Israel has in that body is based completely on political fear – fear of defeat by anyone who does not do what Israel wants done. I can also tell you that very few members of Congress–at least when I served there – have any affection for Israel or for its lobby. What they have is contempt, but it is silenced by fear of being found out exactly how they feel. I’ve heard too many cloakroom conversations in which members of the Senate will voice their bitter feelings about how they’re pushed around by the lobby to think otherwise. In private one hears the dislike of Israel and the tactics of the lobby, but not one of them is willing to risk the lobby’s animosity by making their feelings public.” Abourezk added : “The only exceptions to that rule are the feelings of Jewish members, who, I believe, are sincere in their efforts to keep U.S. money flowing to Israel. But that minority does not a U.S. imperial policy make.”
Since we do not have to run for Congress, we feel free to take a close look at that highly delicate question. First, we’ll review the evidence for the crucial role of the pro-Israel lobby, then we’ll discuss some objections.
For evidence, it should be enough to quote some recent headlines from the American and Israeli press.
First, according to the Times of Israel (not exactly an anti-Zionist rag): “Israel intelligence seen as central to U.S. case against Syria.” (Perhaps the fact that it is “central” also explains why it is so dubious.)
Then, in Haaretz: “AIPAC to deploy hundreds of lobbyists to push for Syria action”. Or, in U.S. News and World Report: “Pro-Israel lobby Seeks to Turn Tide on Syria Debate in Congress”. According to Bloomberg: “Adelson New Obama Ally as Jewish Groups Back Syria Strike”. The worst enemies of Obama become his allies, provided he does what “Jewish groups” want. Even rabbis enter the dance: according to the Times of Israel, “U.S. rabbis urge Congress to back Obama on Syria”.
The New York Times explained some of the logic behind the pressure: “Administration officials said the influential pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC was already at work pressing for military action against the government of Mr. Assad, fearing that if Syria escapes American retribution for its use of chemical weapons, Iran might be emboldened in the future to attack Israel. … One administration official, who, like others, declined to be identified discussing White House strategy, called AIPAC ‘the 800-pound gorilla in the room,’ and said its allies in Congress had to be saying, ‘If the White House is not capable of enforcing this red line’ against the catastrophic use of chemical weapons, ‘we’re in trouble’.”
Even more interesting, this part of the story was deleted by the New York Times, according to M.J. Rosenberg, which is consistent with the fact that the lobby prefers to act discreetly.
Now, to the objections:
There are indeed forces other than the Israel lobby pushing for war. It is true that some neighboring countries like Saudi Arabia or Turkey also want to destroy Syria, for their own reasons. But they have nowhere near the political influence on the United States of the Israel lobby. If Saudi princes use their money to try to corrupt a few U.S. politicians, that can easily be denounced as interference by a foreign power in the internal affairs of the United States. But no similar charge can be raised against Israeli influence because of the golden gag rule: any mention of such influence can be immediately denounced as a typical anti-Semitic slur against a nonexistent “Jewish power”. Referring to the perfectly obvious, public activities of the Israel lobby may even be likened to peddling a “conspiracy theory”.
But many of our friends insist that every war is driven by economic interests. Isn’t this latest war to be waged because big bad capitalists want to exploit Syrian gas, or use Syrian territory for a gas pipeline, or open up the Syrian economy to foreign investments?
There is a widespread tendency, shared by much of the left, especially among people who think of themselves as Marxists (Marx himself was far more nuanced on this issue), to think that wars must be due to cynically rational calculations by capitalists. If this were so, these wars “for oil” might be seen as “in the national interest”. But this view sees “capitalism” as a unified actor issuing orders to obedient politicians on the basis of careful calculations. As Bertrand Russell put it, this putative rationality ignores “the ocean of human folly upon which the fragile barque of human reason insecurely floats”. Wars have been waged for all kinds of non-economic reasons, such as religion or revenge, or simply to display power.
People who think that capitalists want wars to make profits should spend time observing the board of directors of any big corporation: capitalists need stability, not chaos, and the recent wars only bring more chaos. American capitalists are making fortunes in China and Vietnam now that there is peace between the U.S. and those countries, which was not possible during hostilities. As for the argument that they need wars to loot resources, one may observe that the U.S. is buying oil from Iraq now, and so does China, but China did not have to ruin itself in a costly war. Like Iraq, Iran or Syria are perfectly willing to sell their resources, and it is the political embargoes imposed by the U.S. that prevent such trade. As for the “war for oil” thesis in the case of Libya, the Guardian recently reported that “Libya is facing its most critical moment since the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi with armed groups blockading oil fields and terminals, choking output to a 10th of normal levels and threatening economic disaster.”As for Iraq, Stephen Sniegoski has shown, in The Transparent Cabal, The Neoconsevative Agenda, War in the Middle East, and the National Interest of Israel, that the war was only due to the neoconservatives and that the oil companies had no desire whatsoever to go to war. Indeed, there is no evidence of an “oil lobby” sending its agents to urge Members of Congress to vote for war, as AIPAC is doing.
And how does one explain that many of the most determined opponents of war are found on the right of the political spectrum? Do the Tea Party, Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, Justin Raimundo and antiwar.com, Paul Craig Roberts, among others, fail to see the wonderful profits to be made by capitalists in a devastated Syria?
The fact is that in the post-colonial period, wherever profits can be made through war, they can be made much more reliably in peaceful conditions, and most capitalists seem to have understood that. There is no need to conquer countries in order to purchase their resources, invest in their economies or sell them our products. Most countries are in fact eager for legitimate trade.
On the other hand, it can be argued that the huge military-industrial complex (MIC) benefits from wars. Doesn’t the MIC need wars to maintain the lifeblood of military appropriations? Here the matter is complex. The MIC benefits above all from various hyped-up threats of war, most notably the Soviet threat during the Cold War, which kept the credits and contracts flowing through the Pentagon. But long, botched wars such as in Afghanistan or Iraq tend to give war a bad name, are economically ruinous and lead to questioning the need for the huge U.S. military. The MIC doesn’t need another one in Syria. Many military officers are openly hostile to mounting at attack against Syria.
The interests that profit directly from recent U.S. wars – and not from mere “threats” – are very few. They are above all the giant construction firms, Bechtel, Halliburton and their subsidiaries, which, through their connections with officials such as Dick Cheney, win contracts to build U.S. military bases abroad and sometimes to rebuild infrastructure destroyed by the U.S. Air Force. This amounts to a recycling of American taxpayers’ money, which in no way “profits” the United States, or American capitalism in general; besides, those construction firms are not big compared to major U.S. corporations. These profiteers could never pose as a “justification” for wars, but are the mere vultures feeding off conflicts.
The basic responsibility for war of the U.S. military-industrial complex is simply that it is there. And as Madeleine Albright famously said, “what is the use of having that splendid military if we don’t use it?” In fact, ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union (and indeed arguably ever since the end of World War II), there is no obviously good reason to use it, and it might well be dismantled and resources redirected toward modernizing U.S. infrastructure and other useful and profitable activities. However, an intellectual industry called “think tanks” has developed in Washington devoted to justifying the perpetuation of the MIC. It specializes in identifying potential “threats”. Over the years, these think tanks have increasingly come under the influence of billionaire benefactors of Israel such as Haim Saban (founder of the Saban Center at the Brookings Institution). Since there are in reality virtually no serious threats to the United States calling for such colossal military strength, alleged “threats to U.S. interests” in the Middle East are invented by adopting supposed threats to Israel as threats to the United States. Example number one: Iran.
People on the left are not wrong in supposing that Washington would want to defend “American geo-strategic interests”. Those certainly exist, and are a proper object of controversy. But the crucial question here is whether support for Israeli policy aims in the Middle East is among them. Indeed, there is a sector of the U.S. foreign policy establishment that promotes an aggressive global foreign policy that amounts to a sort of world conquest, with U.S. military bases and military exercises surrounding Russia and China, as if in preparation for some final showdown. But the fact is that the most active advocates of this aggressive policy are the pro-Israel neoconservatives of the Project for the New American Century that pushed the Bush II presidency into war against Iraq, and now, as the Foreign Policy Initiative, are pushing Obama toward war against Syria. Their general line is that U.S. and Israeli interests are identical, and that U.S. world domination is good, or even necessary, for Israel. Such close identification with Israel has caused the United States to be intensely hated throughout the Muslim world, which is not good for the United States in the long run.
Perhaps because genuine, material or economic U.S. interests in going to war are so hard to find, the emphasis has shifted in the past decade to alleged “moral” concerns, such as “the responsibility to protect”, packaged with a catchy brand name, “R2P”. Today, the strongest advocates of going to war are the various humanitarian imperialists or liberal interventionist, who argue on the basis of R2P, or “justice for victims”, or alleged “genocide prevention”.
There is a large overlap between humanitarian interventionism and support for Israel. In France Bernard Kouchner, who first invented and promoted the concept of the “right to intervene”, stated in a recent interview that “Israel is like no other country. It is the result of the terrifying massacre of the Holocaust.” It is therefore “our duty” to protect it. Bernard-Henry Lévy prodded the French government to start the war against Libya, making no secret that he considered he was acting as a Jew for the interests of Israel; he is now the foremost and fiercest advocate of bombing Syria. In both France and the United States, advocates of “humanitarian” intervention justify bombing Syria by referring to the Holocaust in the past and to a hypothetical, and totally unsubstantiated, intention by Iran to risk national suicide by attacking Israel in the future.
In the United States, these concerns of the Israel lobby are given ideological and institutional expression by such influential advisors as Samantha Power, Madeleine Albright and the two Abramowitz’s (Morton the father and Michael the son, in charge of “genocide prevention efforts” at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum). The argument is used repeatedly that because “we” did not intervene quickly enough against Auschwitz, we have an obligation to intervene militarily to prevent other possible slaughters.
On September 6, the Cleveland Jewish News published a letter from “leading rabbis” urging Congress to support President Obama’s plans to strike Syria. “We write you as descendants of Holocaust survivors and refugees, whose ancestors were gassed to death in concentration camps,” the letter said. By authorizing bombing raids, the rabbis said, “Congress has the capacity to save thousands of lives”…
Without such dramatization, obscuring the reality of each new crisis with images of the Holocaust, the whole notion that the best way to promote human rights and protect populations is to wage unilateral wars, destroy what is left of the international legal order and spread chaos would be seen for the absurdity it is. Only the fervor of the champions of Israel enables such emotional arguments to swamp reasonable discussion.
But one may reasonably ask what are the interests of Israel itself in inciting the United States to fight in Syria? Israelis seem to have frightened themselves into believing that the very existence of another power in the region, namely Iran, amounts to an existential threat. But the mere fact that a policy is pursued does not mean that it is necessarily in the interests of those who pursue it. That is again ignoring the “ocean of human folly”. Napoleon and Hitler had no interest or desire in bringing Russian troops to Paris or Berlin, but their policies led to precisely that. The emperors of Germany, Austria and Russia had no interest in launching the First World War, since, in the end, they all lost their thrones as a result of the war. But launch it they did. The future is unpredictable, and that is why it is difficult to deduce intentions from consequences. Israel’s hostile policy toward its neighbors can reasonably be seen as self-defeating in the long run.
Oddly enough, some observers deny the obvious, arguing that Bashar al Assad has allowed Israel to occupy Syrian territory on the Golan Heights and has kept the border quiet (without explaining what else he could have done, given the relationship of forces) and concluding that Israel has no interest in toppling him. But what matters is that Assad is allied with Hezbollah and with Iran. Israel hates Hezbollah for its successful resistance to Israeli occupation of Lebanon, and sees Iran as the only potential challenge to Israeli military supremacy in the region.
Even so, it is not certain that Israel’s war aim would be to overthrow Assad. A clue to Israel’s strategy is provided by a September 5 article in the New York Times: “Israeli officials have consistently made the case that enforcing Mr. Obama’s narrow ‘red line’ on Syria is essential to halting the nuclear ambitions of Israel’s archenemy, Iran. More quietly, Israelis have increasingly argued that the best outcome for Syria’s two-and-a-half-year-old civil war, at least for the moment, is no outcome. For Jerusalem, the status quo, horrific as it may be from a humanitarian perspective, seems preferable to either a victory by Mr. Assad’s government and his Iranian backers or a strengthening of rebel groups, increasingly dominated by Sunni jihadis.”
“This is a playoff situation in which you need both teams to lose, but at least you don’t want one to win — we’ll settle for a tie,” said Alon Pinkas, a former Israeli consul general in New York. “Let them both bleed, hemorrhage to death: that’s the strategic thinking here. As long as this lingers, there’s no real threat from Syria.”
So, the real goal of the limited strikes (and the reason why they ought to be limited) would be to send a message to Iran, about its nonexistent nuclear arms program and, in Syria, let both sides “bleed to death”. How nice! Waging a war based on the flimsiest of evidence only to prolong a bloody conflict may not be a very moral endeavor for all those who claim to act out of passion for “our values” and for deep concern over the “suffering of the Syrian people”.
In its zeal to serve what it considers Israel’s interests, AIPAC and its affiliates practice deception concerning the issues at stake. The lobby misrepresents the interests of the United States, and even ignores the long term interests of the Jewish people whom it often claims to represent. It is pure folly for a minority, however powerful and respected, to try to impose an unpopular war on the majority. Since Israel often claims to represent the Jewish people as a whole, if the majority of Americans are forced to pay an unacceptable price for “defending Israel”, sooner or later voices will be raised blaming “the Jews”. Indeed, this can be seen by a brief look at what already gets written, anonymously of course, on social media, ranging from various conspiracy theories to outright Jew-bashing.
We, who are totally opposed to the notion of collective guilt, wish to avoid such an outcome. Far from being anti-Semitic, we deplore all forms of “identity politics” that ignore the diversity within every human group. We simply want to be able to say “no” openly to the pro-Israel lobby without being subjected to moral intimidation. This has nothing to do with Jewish religion or identity or culture: it is entirely political. We claim our right to refuse to be drawn into somebody else’s war. We believe that these endless wars are not “good for the Jews” – or for anyone else. We want to contribute to efforts at mutual understanding, diplomacy, compromise and disarmament. In short, to strengthen “the fragile barque of human reason” adrift on the ocean of human folly. Otherwise, that folly may drown us all.
For now, the threat of war has been avoided, or at least “postponed”. Let us not forget that Iraq and Libya also gave up their weapons of mass destruction, only to be attacked later. Syria is likely to abandon its chemical weapons, but without any guarantee that the rebels, much less Israel, won’t retain such weapons. The popular mobilization against the war, probably the first one in history to stop a war before it starts, has been intense but may be short-lived. Those whose war plans have been interrupted can be expected to come up with new maneuvers to regain the initiative. These past days have given a glimpse of what can be accomplished when people wake up and say no to war. This must be an inspiration for continued efforts to make diplomacy prevail over bullying, and mutual disarmament over endless war. If people really want peace, it can be possible.
The creation of a united sectarian-front was noted by geopolitical analyst Dr. Webster Tarpley who has from the beginning stated that the various possible governments resulting from these engineered revolutions “could then be used to support the fundamental US-UK strategy for the Middle East, which is to assemble a block of Arab and aligned sectarian countries (notably Egypt, Saudis, Gulf states, and Jordan) which, formed into a front with the participation of Israel, would collide with the Iranian Shiite front, including Syria, Hezbollah, Hamas, and various radical forces.”
Image: Red = US-backed destabilization, Blue = US occupying/stationed. Iran and Syria are completely surrounded by either client states or nations occupied by US forces. And while the complexity of West’s reordering of the Arab World is staggering, it is but a part of a grander strategy to eliminate the nation-state and establish global hegemony.
Confirming this is a 2007 New Yorker article recently pointed out by a reader titled, “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” Written by renowned journalist Seymour Hersh, it covers everything from admissions that the US, Saudis, and Israelis are working together, despite the Saudis and their sectarian proxies’ attempts to portray themselves as “anti-Israeli,” to admissions that the US is funding a region-wide network of militants and terrorists, many of whom have literally trained at Al Qaeda camps. The article also describes in great detail the role of the Hariri faction in Lebanon, working closely with the Saudis and Americans, and their role in creating a safe haven for terrorist organizations on Lebanese soil, now involved fully in destabilizing neighboring Syria.
Clearly, what has been recently portrayed by the West as mere “claims” by the Syrian government that the Saudis, Lebanese, and NATO were conspiring against them, is simply the fruition of the US policy exposed fully in the New Yorker in 2007. While many analysts have treated the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and their involvement in Syria’s uprising as a somewhat nebulous phenomenon, the New Yorker’s 2007 makes it clear that the Brotherhood is one of the primary instruments used by the Saudis as part of a US-Israeli-Saudi effort to eliminate Syria and Iran. Not only that, but the report indicates that the US itself has been funding and using the Muslim Brotherhood as well.
Just as the US State Department feigned shock and confusion at the “Arab Spring” it had been preparing for the last 3 years, it is likewise reacting with feigned confusion and dismay over the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in the “Arab Spring’s” wake. In reality it is a premeditated consequence of US foreign policy spanning both the Bush and now the Obama administrations.
While in 2007, all of this was, “soon to be,” in retrospect we see just how devastatingly accurate Hersh’s reporting was. It is clear now, with the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood and the sectarian-extremist dominated, foreign-funded destabilization ravaging Syria, that this policy created during the Bush administration, has transcended presidencies and is being brought to its premeditated conclusion under Obama – yet another example of “continuity of agenda.”
Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the United States Are Behind Syria’s Violence.
The evidence trickling out of the corporate-media regarding who the armed Syrian opposition is, reveals that it is predominately an extremist sectarian-movement, not only including Syrian extremists, but militants crossing the border from Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and even from as far as Libya. An alliance of Gulf States led by Saudi Arabia have pledged funds for Syria’s militants and has repeatedly called for openly arming them. The US is likewise openly equipping Syrian militants.
This reality is not merely a spontaneous reaction by the “international community,” but verbatim what was planned in detail amongst the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia years in advance to topple the Syrian government before moving on to Iran, according to Hersh’s 2007 report:
“To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.” –The Redirection, Seymour Hersh
Hersh’s report would also include:
“the Saudi government, with Washington’s approval, would provide funds and logistical aid to weaken the government of President Bashir Assad, of Syria. The Israelis believe that putting such pressure on the Assad government will make it more conciliatory and open to negotiations.” –The Redirection, Seymour Hersh
This mirrors sentiments included in the Brookings Institution’s 2009 report, “Which Path to Persia?” where it was stated that reaching some sort of conclusion with Syria first was a prerequisite before attacking Iran:
“…the Israelis may want to hold off until they have a peace deal with Syria in hand (assuming that Jerusalem believes that one is within reach), which would help them mitigate blowback from Hizballah and potentially Hamas. Consequently, they might want Washington to push hard in mediating between Jerusalem and Damascus.” -Which Path to Persia? page 109 (.pdf)
Clearly, what we are seeing today in Syria is the full manifestation of this premeditated conspiracy against the government and people of Syria, and in turn, against the Iranians. It should be noted that a US intelligence professional interviewed by Hersh for his story, predicted that the sectarian extremists being prepared in 2007 for today’s violence, would most likely go on a genocidal killing spree, as seen in Libya, and now being quietly reported by the Western press in Syria as well:
“Robert Baer, a former longtime C.I.A. agent in Lebanon, has been a severe critic of Hezbollah and has warned of its links to Iranian-sponsored terrorism. But now, he told me, “we’ve got Sunni Arabs preparing for cataclysmic conflict, and we will need somebody to protect the Christians in Lebanon. It used to be the French and the United States who would do it, and now it’s going to be Nasrallah and the Shiites” –The Redirection, Seymour Hersh
That the United States, Israel, and Saudi Arabia premeditated a regional conflict utilizing militant-extremists with full knowledge they would commit wide ranging, genocidal atrocities, is clearly as much in reality a war crime as the US State Department and US representative to the UN Susan Rice have claimed the Syrian government has committed as it desperately attempts to restore order in the face of an admitted act of foreign aggression.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a Tool of US-Israeli-Saudi Machinations.
The Muslim Brotherhood is often portrayed as being anti-Israeli, anti-US, and anti-West in general. In reality they are a creation of and have been ever since servants of expanding Wall Street and London’s corporate-financier hegemony across the Islamic World. In Hersh’s 2007 report, it is made clear that the Brotherhood was the tool of choice of the US, Israeli, and Saudi elite – with the US and Saudis reported as even then directly funding and backing them – backing that continues to this day, not only in Syria, but in Egypt as well.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s rank and file surely believe in what they are being told by their leaders, but their leaders are professional demagogues peddling anti-Israeli and anti-American rhetoric solely for public consumption while being fully complicit in the West’s designs against the Arab World.
Hersh reports that a supporter of the Lebanese Hariri faction had met Dick Cheney in Washington and relayed personally the importance of using the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria in any move against the ruling government:
“[Walid] Jumblatt then told me that he had met with Vice-President Cheney in Washington last fall to discuss, among other issues, the possibility of undermining Assad. He and his colleagues advised Cheney that, if the United States does try to move against Syria, members of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood would be “the ones to talk to,” Jumblatt said.” –The Redirection, Seymour Hersh
The article would continue by explaining how already in 2007 US and Saudi backing had begun benefiting the Brotherhood:
“There is evidence that the Administration’s redirection strategy has already benefitted the Brotherhood. The Syrian National Salvation Front is a coalition of opposition groups whose principal members are a faction led by Abdul Halim Khaddam, a former Syrian Vice-President who defected in 2005, and the Brotherhood. A former high-ranking C.I.A. officer told me, “The Americans have provided both political and financial support. The Saudis are taking the lead with financial support, but there is American involvement.” He said that Khaddam, who now lives in Paris, was getting money from Saudi Arabia, with the knowledge of the White House. (In 2005, a delegation of the Front’s members met with officials from the National Security Council, according to press reports.) A former White House official told me that the Saudis had provided members of the Front with travel documents.” –The Redirection, Seymour Hersh
It was warned that such backing would benefit the Brotherhood as a whole, not just in Syria, and could effect public opinion even as far as in Egypt where a long battle against the hardliners was fought in order to keep Egyptian governance secular.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, also interviewed by Hersh for his 2007 article, perhaps described best the geopolitical gambit the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel were and are currently attempting to unfold:
“Nasrallah accused the Bush Administration of working with Israel to deliberately instigate fitna, an Arabic word that is used to mean “insurrection and fragmentation within Islam.” “In my opinion, there is a huge campaign through the media throughout the world to put each side up against the other,” he said. “I believe that all this is being run by American and Israeli intelligence.” (He did not provide any specific evidence for this.) He said that the U.S. war in Iraq had increased sectarian tensions, but argued that Hezbollah had tried to prevent them from spreading into Lebanon. (Sunni-Shiite confrontations increased, along with violence, in the weeks after we talked.)” –The Redirection, Seymour Hersh
Indeed, divide and conquer has been used by empires since the beginning of time, and it appears that the very radical extremists the West has featured as civilization’s greatest enemy in their fraudulent “War on Terror” is a creation and perpetuation of their own design. The role of Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Brotherhood, betraying millions of Sunni Muslims by exploiting their justified outrage of US-British and Israeli foreign policy, has resulted in terrorism and violence, both spontaneous and engineered, that has destroyed millions of lives. The very “War on Terror” is the “management” of these exploited and cultivated extremists:
“…[Saudi Arabia’s] Bandar and other Saudis have assured the White House that “they will keep a very close eye on the religious fundamentalists. Their message to us was ‘We’ve created this movement, and we can control it.’ It’s not that we don’t want the Salafis to throw bombs; it’s who they throw them at—Hezbollah, Moqtada al-Sadr, Iran, and at the Syrians, if they continue to work with Hezbollah and Iran.” –The Redirection, Seymour Hersh
For Empire, not National Security.
The only fault that can be found in Hersh’s tremendous journalistic accomplishment is perhaps the pandering to the notion that all of this demonstrative deceit and indeed, criminality, may be being done in the interest of protecting Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the United States. In reality, even the Brookings Institution, which was also included in Hersh’s report, admits that containing Iran is not a matter of national security for either the US or Israel (let alone Saudi Arabia), but a matter of maintaining the status quo, namely Western hegemony across the Middle East, with Saudi Arabia and Israel the principle dual benefactors.
While behind closed doors US policy makers admit Iran, even if it were to obtain nuclear weapons, is driven by self-preservation and protecting the influence it is steadily gaining throughout the Middle Eastern region it borders, the message they desperately seek to relate to the public is one of an irrational apocalyptic theocracy eager to usher in Armageddon.
However, reports out of the RAND corporation note that Iran has had chemical weapons in its inventory for decades, and other reports from RAND describe the strict control elite military units exercise over these weapons, making it unlikely they would end up in the hands of “terrorists.” The fact that Iran’s extensive chemical weapon stockpile has yet to be disseminated into the hands of non-state actors, along with the fact that these same elite units would in turn handle any Iranian nuclear weapons, lends further evidence to the conclusion that Iran is indeed driven by self-preservation and self-defense.
Brookings notes on pages 24 and 25 of their “Which Path to Persia?” report, that the real threat is not the deployment of these weapons, but rather the deterrence they present, allowing Iran to counter US influence in the region without the fear of an American invasion. The US and the West in general, have viewed the Middle East as nothing more than a divided, broken Ottoman Empire to be used and exploited, and when nationalism or resistance emerges, to be pitted against itself in destructive conflicts.
The fear of a powerful Iran overturning the status quo of Anglo-American hegemony expressed through proxies and multiple strategies of tension, Israel itself being one of them, would open the door for other nations to climb out from beneath the modern heirs of the British and French Empires and begin down the path of true self-determination. That includes freeing the people of Israel laboring under a hijacked government misleading them into a pointless and perpetual conflict with not only the Palestinians, but with the Islamic World itself.
Indeed, the ploy described in incredible detail by Seymour Hersh in 2007, and demonstratively playing out before our eyes today, is not to protect against existential threats to the people of Saudi Arabia, Israel, or the United States, but against existential threats to their leadership’s self-serving hegemonic ambitions. It is being peddled by a coalition of Saudis, Americans, and Israelis lying not only to the world, their allies, and their enemies, but to their own people about the nature of the conflict they demand troops and taxpayers to facilitate.
Image: Terrorist bombings have recently ripped through Damascus, Syria, bearing all the hallmarks of sectarian extremists, funded and directed by the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia since at least 2007, according to Seymour Hersh’s article, “The Redirection.” With the back-story now fully established, and the violence in Syria exposed as not only premeditated, but the devastating consequences of unleashing sectarian extremists being well known ahead of time, those insisting on backing this horrendous crime do so amidst a public increasingly aware of their transgressions against humanity.
Balking these murderous machinations is accomplished by Sunnis and Shi’ia not falling into the traps laid out by the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia in the form of the Muslim Brotherhood, and terror groups and “civil society” NGO’s alike, cultivated by these admitted international manipulators. Christians and Jews must likewise avoid the contrived “clash of civilizations” between themselves and hordes of terrorists created and cultivated by their own demagogic leaders.
Finally, it is essential that people around the world recognize that the corporations and institutions they patronize on a daily basis with their time, money, energy, and attention are the ones ultimately devising and driving not only these plots, but the disingenuous politicians and media personalities we’ve mistakenly placed our trust in. We must begin to boycott and replace these corporations and institutions with genuine local alternatives or suffer the tragic conclusion of allowing such deceitful megalomaniacs to construct an inescapable world order they shall presume absolute dominion over.
