More fake anti-Semitic hate crimes.

The Guardian‘s Peter Beaumont reported in April 2017 that Israeli police arrested a dual US-Israeli citizen, Michael Ron David Kadar, 18, for:

  • Making bomb threats against Jewish centers in the U.S. for “financial gain”;
  • Using sophisticated technology to mask his voice and IP address to make thousands of hoax calls worldwide, including against airlines and police stations;
  • Money laundering; and
  • The attempted blackmail of Ernesto Lopez, a Republican Delaware state senator.

See my post, “Fake Anti-Semitism: Dual US-Israeli citizens made bomb threats against Jewish groups“.

At the time, it was reported that “Israel would probably oppose his extradition to the US, where many of the crimes were allegedly committed.”

Yesterday, February 28, 2018, the Department of Justice’s Office of Public Affairs issued this press release:

The Department of Justice today announced the indictment of Michael Ron David Kadar, 19, who holds dual United States and Israeli citizenship, in three jurisdictions for hate crimes and other offenses.

The indictment from Florida charges Kadar with hate crimes as a result of threatening calls he made to Jewish Community Centers in the state. In addition, the indictment from the District of Columbia charges Kadar with threatening the Israeli Embassy and the Anti-Defamation League in Washington, D.C. The third indictment charges Kadar with cyberstalking and conveying false information to police dispatch regarding harm to private residents in Georgia.

An investigation into numerous threats made to individuals and organizations throughout the United States in 2016 and early 2017 led to Kadar being charged initially in criminal complaints on April 21, 2017 in Florida and Georgia following his arrest in Israel. Kadar remains in custody in Israel where he also faces charges.

The indictment from the Middle District of Florida charges that beginning on or about Jan. 4, 2017, and continuing until Feb. 27, 2017, Kadar made multiple threatening calls involving bomb threats and active shooter threats to numerous Jewish Community Centers throughout Florida. Additionally, the indictment charges Kadar with attempting to obstruct the free exercise of religion at the Jewish Community Centers when he made the bomb threats and active shooter threats. Finally, the indictment charges that Kadar made bomb threats to the Orlando International Airport and a middle school in the Middle District of Florida. Although no actual explosives were found, many of the calls resulted in the temporary closure and evacuation or lockdown of the targeted facilities, and required law enforcement and emergency personnel to respond to and clear the area.

The indictment from the District of Columbia charges that on or about March 7, 2017, Kadar made a threatening call to the Anti-Defamation League involving a bomb threat. Additionally, the indictment alleges that on or about March 9, 2017, Kadar sent a threatening email to the Israeli Embassy involving a bomb threat.

The indictment from the Middle District of Georgia charges that on or about Jan. 3, 2017, Kadar made a phone call to a police department conveying false information about an alleged hostage situation in progress at a private residence in Athens, Georgia, which included a threat to kill responding police officers. Police and emergency personnel responded to the scene, only to learn that there was no emergency.

The hate crime charges each carry a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment, the bomb threats charges each carry a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment, and the interstate threats charge, the hoax charge, and the cyberstalking charge each carry a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment. If convicted, Kadar could also be subject to court ordered restitution. […]

This case was investigated by the FBI Tampa Division, FBI Washington Field Office, and FBI Atlanta Division; the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida; the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia; U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Georgia; the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division; and the Criminal Section of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. The Criminal Division’s Office of International Affairs provided significant assistance in this case. Federal authorities also acknowledge and appreciate the assistance and the investigative efforts of the Israeli National Police.

Meanwhile, here’s an example of a real “hate crime” — by Jews against non-Jews.

On August 18, 2010, a group of rabbis gathered in Israel to defend the publication of Torat Ha’Melech (King’s Torah), a rabbinical guidebook for killing non-Jews, including innocent children.

Writing for AlterNet, Max Blumenthal quotes the book’s author, Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira:

Non-Jews are ‘uncompassionate by nature’ and should be killed in order to ‘curb their evil inclinations.’ If we kill a gentile who has violated one of the seven commandments… there is nothing wrong with the murder. There is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults.”

Blumenthal describes what happened at the gathering on August 18, 2010:

Before an audience of 250 supporters including the far-right Israeli Knesset member Michael Ben-Ari, the rabbis declared in the name of the Holy Torah they would not submit to any attempt by the government to regulate their political activities — even and especially if those activities included inciting terrorist attacks against non-Jews. As one wizened rabbi after another rose up to inveigh against the government’s investigation of Torat Ha’Melech until his voice grew hoarse, the gathering degenerated into calls for murdering not just non-Jews, but secular Jews as well.

But Pope Francis conceals the cross by stuffing it inside his waist sash, so as not to offend the delicate sensibilities of Israeli rabbis.

As a matter of fact, in December 2015, the pope’s Vatican’s Commission for Religious Relations with Jews issued a major new document pronouncing that God had never annulled his covenant with the Jewish people, and so Catholics should not try to convert Jews. In so doing, of course, Francis and the Vatican directly contravene what Jesus and St. Paul had said:

“This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my Blood, which will be shed for you.” -Luke 22:20

“In speaking of a new covenant, He makes the first one obsolete.” -Hebrews 8:13

See “Pope Francis is ashamed of the Cross; knows better than the Gospels“.

John "I served in Vietnam" Kerry: "I might challenge Trump in 2020"

Kerry & Hanoi Jane
Go for it, Lurch.
From NY Post: Ex-Secretary of State John Kerry has confided that he may make a second bid for the White House — as he urged Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to resist President Trump, according to a report.
“[Abbas] should stay strong in his spirit and play for time — that he should not break down and not capitulate to Trump’s demands,” Kerry told an Abbas confidant, according to the Hebrew daily Ma’ariv.
Kerry also suggested during his London confab with Hussein Agha, the Palestinian Authority president’s close associate, that the PA formulate its own peace proposal.
“Maybe it is time for the Palestinians to define their peace principles and present a positive plan,” he said, adding that Abbas should show Trump that he will “not break and will not yield” to his demands.
Kerry promised to use all his contacts and abilities to build support for a plan pitched by the Palestinians.
He asked Abbas, through Agha, not to attack the Trump administration, but to concentrate on personal attacks on Trump, who Kerry said was directly responsible for the stalled peace process.
In the report about the conversation, Agha said Kerry appears to be “crazy about things,” very energetic and eager to help realize the dream of peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
Kerry said that even fellow Republicans do not know what to do with the erratic Trump — and that patience was needed to get through this turbulent period. According to the report, Kerry also used derogatory terms when referring to Trump.
The 2004 Democratic presidential nominee has continued to meet with Agha, who served as an intermediary for Kerry and Abbas during Kerry’s four years as top diplomat.
Kerry also told the Lebanese scholar that Trump – whose administration is under investigation for possible collusion with Russia — will likely not be in the White House much longer.
If Trump survives his first term, the Massachusetts Democrat suggested he may seek to unseat him in 2020.
Last September, Kerry refused to rule out the possibility of running in 2020, telling MSNBC that he did not “have any plans right now” to run for president.
If elected, Kerry would be 77 on inauguration day in 2021 – making him the oldest president in US history. The current record is held by Trump, who was 70 when he was sworn in last year.
Agha is a senior associate member of St. Antony’s College, Oxford, and co-author of “A Framework for a Palestinian National Security Doctrine.”
He maintains an extensive network of contacts with many influential Israelis. Agha declined to respond to the report. The Israeli paper could not reach Kerry for comment.

After pushing for Muslim immigration into Europe, Jews now say Jews should leave Europe

Jews are a main force pushing for immigration, “migration” and “refugee resettlement” of Third World peoples (mainly Muslims from North Africa and the Middle East) into Europe and North America.

See also “French rabbi Rav Touitou applauds Muslim invasion of Europe”.
Curiously, Jews’ advocacy of open immigration doesn’t extend to Israel.
But the flood of Muslim “migrants” into Europe have produced a myriad of social ills. See for example:

Now that Europe is ruined by their governments’ wrong-headed open-door policy to Muslim “migrants” — a policy pushed by Jews — Jews are bemoaning a situation they themselves have promoted, and asking if it is time for Jews to leave Europe.
How perverse is that.
In April 2015, The Atlantic magazine published an article by its national correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg asking “Is It Time for the Jews to Leave Europe?”, as well as hosted a discussion on the same subject among three of its staffers who are all Jews:


Below is a video from the discussion, which was uploaded to YouTube by The Atlantic on April 29, 2015. It is at once stunningly revealing and mind-boggling, and well worth your time. I’ve transcribed parts of the discussion below.

The problem is stated by Bennet as the blameless Jews as the eternal victim and scapegoat of other people’s problems (19:46 mark):

“The Jews are collateral . . . . When civilizations clash, Jews die…. We’re seeing a clash between two different ways of being. We’re seeing an indigestible Muslim minority confronting a Europe that is paralyzed and doesn’t even know itself anymore. And the Jews happen to be sitting there, and sometimes as an afterthought, they are attacked; sometimes as a convenient scapegoat they’re attacked. But they’re not in a way part of the larger drama. They just sit there and get it in the neck…. Jews are not in control of what happens to Jews in Europe, and that is the best reason to sort of think about an exit.”

Goldberg on how unlivable life is for Jews in Europe (8:03):

“At my synagogue in Washington, DC, we often will have services outside. The thought of doing that in Europe is an impossibility! You can’t do anything out in the open anymore, and it seems like a very straightened, narrow, archaic way to live.”

All three men agree that “liberalism” has failed in Europe, by which they mean the liberal culture of “tolerance” and “multiculturalism”:

Goldberg (15:26): “In a sense, liberalism has failed. If this doesn’t work, it has failed in Europe.”

Who’s to blame? While putting some of the blame on Muslims, the panelists mainly blame the Europeans, i.e., non-Jewish “white” Europeans for not being nice to the Muslim “migrants”:

Goldberg (9:46): “This Muslim Judeaphobia that you see, this is not created in complete isolation. This is not wholly a Middle Eastern import. This is fed by classical European anti-Semitic tropes” which led to the Holocaust.
Wieseltier (11:25): “European liberalism as we know from its history constantly provoked recoils and allergic reaction. Fascism and communism both were in some way allergic responses to the European liberalism. The [European] liberal state can actually collide with an illiberal society and illiberal culture, and I think to some extent that’s what’s happening.” The situation in Europe now is a “top down liberalism whereby the state is liberal and motivated by all the right values. And then there is this bottom, which lives peacefully most of the time, but [not] really sufficiently to some extent.”
Bennet (16:08): “You have to admit that it’s odd that it’s . . . this has happened in part . . . by the importation of poor Muslims to labor on behalf of industrial Europe by these Muslims being put in these ghettos and in disenfranchised positions.
Wieseltier (16:35): “It is true that these new Muslim communities are the proximate [immediate] causes of this crisis, but the non proximate cause is the more distant causes — the treatment or mistreatment of these [Muslim] communities, the societies to which they arrived, the prejudice that they found, the indifference that they found . . . and their apparent lack of interest in actually integrating.”

When Bennet asks if in some way Muslims are not “meltable,” i.e., they refuse to assimilate into the host society, Wieseltier actually admits Jews also are not “meltable”:

(17:52): “The same point about the Jews. During the great debates about Jewish emancipation in the 18th-early 19th century in Western Europe, the arguments always were the Jews cannot be absorbed because they were ‘a state within a state’ because their laws and their way of life make them unassimilable.

All agree that Jews need to leave Europe, even though ironically, as Bennet observed (12:51), “This is what Hitler wanted”:

Bennet (12:10): “The tragic outcome of this is that the Jews in fact do need to all leave Europe.
Bennet (15:51): “I would prefer them to leave in a kind of way because I think it’s not very safe to be there.

And where would Europe’s Jews go? While the panelists note that Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has welcomed Jews to Israel, the panelists don’t seem enthusiastic about that idea but don’t explain why. Instead, they have their eyes on North America:

Wieseltier (15:32): “I think that there is democracy in the United States, there’s democracy is Canada. Both these countries would welcome these Jews.

Last but not least, when Bennet asks (12:19) “What would be the most Jewish thing for the last Jew [to leave Europe] to do, the most appropriate fitting thing?,” Wieseltier answers (12:23):

The last thing that you [the last Jew] should do when he or she leaves Europe is spit.”

I recommend that you read viewers’ comments on the video’s YouTube page. Here’s a sample:

“The last Jew to leave Europe should spit? The utter contempt for native European people these people have.”
“LOL at blaming the islamic discrimination for jews onto the europeans, whilst importing millions of muslim migrants.”
“Even within a video titled ‘Should the Jews Leave Europe?’, the Muslims end up getting painted as the victims.”
“Jews have no intention of ever leaving Europe of their own free will. The idea that the interests of gentiles in maintaining their own cultures and institutions for themselves Is not an idea that washes well with most of these narcissistic arrogant parasites.”
“Too bad every single Jew in the world can’t just move to Israel and leave their host countries alone.”
“Jews are always the big promoters of multiculturalism (except for Israel of course, hypocrites), either through non-profit organizations (Soros) or through political bribery. Jews are and have always been anti-white that’s why they have been deported out of more than a 100 countries in history. History repeats and the wheel of karma keeps turning.”

New York Times: Israeli and other foreign intelligence have the goods on pedophile D.C. politicians

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 20:18:23 +0000

eowyn2

It is said that a major reason why no one in authority would investigate Pizzagate is because many politicians, including those in D.C., are pedophiles, and that they are blackmailed by powerful intelligence groups, domestic and foreign — including Israel’s Mossad — who have “the goods” on their child-sex activities.

But all of that is speculative chatter on the Alt-Media.

Thanks to enterprising Voat netizen DawnKeyhote, we now have none other than the New York Times making that assertion via an Associated Press story. But it’s the NYT of 35 years ago when the Times still conducted actual journalism, not the NYT of today, which dismisses Pizzagate without an investigation, and whose CEO Mark Thompson, in his previous position as director-general of the BBC, had refused to investigate the hundreds of allegations of child sex abuse by British TV personality and notorious pedophile Sir Jimmy Savile.

Below is the AP article in its entirety, “Boy Sex Rings Said to Peddle Client Data to Foreign Agents,” The New York Times, July 27, 1982:

Prostitution rings are providing young boys to male customers in Washington and are reportedly selling information about their clients’ sexual preferences to foreign intelligence services, a private investigator testified yesterday.

The investigator, Dale Smith, who works for the New York State Senate’s Select Committee on Crime, said he had learned that British, Israeli and Soviet agents had bought information from several call services in Washington.

Mr. Smith appeared before the committee at the opening in New York City of a two-day hearing on prostitution among young males and on pornography.

Mr. Smith said that an accountant for five call services had told him about the sale of information to foreign agents. He refused to elaborate on the allegations when questioned by reporters, but the committee counsel, Jeremiah McKenna, said that the information concerned ”government officials.” He declined to be more specific.

”They’re making more money selling information than on the prostitution itself,” Mr. McKenna said. Allegations of homosexual sex and drug use on Capitol Hill among Congressmen, pages and other employees have circulated in Washington recently.

Mr. Smith also said that ”call service operations in Washington have some connection with organized crime in New York.” He described how male prostitutes between the ages of 13 and 16 were shuttled between the cities, and were paid from $50 to $250, with younger boys commanding the most.

Earlier, a Washington detective testified that she had uncovered a six-city prostitution network that used 12-year-old boys and allowed customers to pay for sex with credit cards.

The cities involved are Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, New York, Washington and Houston, said the detective, Anne Fisher of the Washington Metropolitan Police.

”You could call a number in Houston from Washington and have a young boy brought to your room in Washington,” the detective said.

Threat to free speech: Unconstitutional S720/HR1697 will make it a felony to support anti-Israel boycott

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution, adopted in 1791, states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The criminalization of political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech in the West:

  • In France, activists have been arrested and prosecuted for wearing T-shirts advocating a boycott of Israel.
  • The U.K. has also enacted a series of measures designed to outlaw such activism.
  • In the U.S., state governors have implemented regulations barring businesses from participating in any boycotts of Israeli settlements in Palestine. On college campuses, punishment of pro-Palestinian students for expressing criticisms of Israel is so commonplace that the Center for Constitutional Rights refers to it as “the Palestine Exception” to free speech.

Now there are two companion bills in Congress which will criminalize free speech by making it a felony to support any boycott of Israel, in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment that members of Congress have sworn to protect.
The bills are S.720 and its companion in the House, H.R. 1697, with an identical name, the Israel Anti-Boycott Act.
Here’s the text of S 720:

Israel Anti-Boycott Act
This bill declares that Congress: (1) opposes the United Nations Human Rights Council resolution of March 24, 2016, which urges countries to pressure companies to divest from, or break contracts with, Israel; and (2) encourages full implementation of the United States-Israel Strategic Partnership Act of 2014 through enhanced, governmentwide, coordinated U.S.-Israel scientific and technological cooperation in civilian areas.
The bill amends the Export Administration Act of 1979 to declare that it shall be U.S. policy to oppose:

  • requests by foreign countries to impose restrictive practices or boycotts against other countries friendly to the United States or against U.S. persons; and
  • restrictive trade practices or boycotts fostered or imposed by an international governmental organization, or requests to impose such practices or boycotts, against Israel.

The bill prohibits U.S. persons engaged in interstate or foreign commerce from:

  • requesting the imposition of any boycott by a foreign country against a country which is friendly to the United States; or
  • supporting any boycott fostered or imposed by an international organization, or requesting imposition of any such boycott, against Israel.

The bill amends the Export-Import Bank Act of 1945 to include as a reason for the Export-Import Bank to deny credit applications for the export of goods and services between the United States and foreign countries, opposition to policies and actions that are politically motivated and are intended to penalize or otherwise limit commercial relations specifically with citizens or residents of Israel, entities organized under the laws of Israel, or the Government of Israel.

S 720’s companion bill, HR 1697, is much longer. It explains that:

“For a half century, Congress has combated anti-Israel boycotts and other discriminatory activity under the Export Administration Act of 1979.”

HR 1697 also specifies the punishment for violating the Israel Anti-Boycott Act: a minimum civil penalty of $250,000, and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison:

Whoever knowingly violates or conspires to or attempts to violate any provision of section 8(a) [of the Export Administration act of 1979] or any regulation, order, or license issued thereunder shall be fined in accordance with section 206 of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1705).”

And what are those penalties? From 50 U.S.C. 1705:

“(b) Civil penalty

A civil penalty may be imposed on any person who commits an unlawful act described in subsection (a) in an amount not to exceed the greater of- (1) $250,000; or (2) an amount that is twice the amount of the transaction that is the basis of the violation with respect to which the penalty is imposed.

(c) Criminal penalty

A person who willfully commits, willfully attempts to commit, or willfully conspires to commit, or aids or abets in the commission of, an unlawful act described in subsection (a) shall, upon conviction, be fined not more than $1,000,000, or if a natural person, may be imprisoned for not more than 20 years, or both.”

Both bills have widespread bipartisan support:
(1) S 720 was introduced by Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-MD) and has 45 co-sponsors:

  • 31 Republicans: John Boozman (AR), Richard Burr (NC), Shelley Moore Capito (WV), Bill Cassidy (LA), Susan Collins (ME), John Cornyn (TX), Tom Cotton (AR), Mike Crapo (IA), Ted Cruz (TX), Deb Fischer (NE), Lindsey Graham (SC), Chuck Grassley (IA), Orrin Hatch (UT), Dean Heller (NV), John Hoeven (ND), Johnny Isakson (GA), James Lankford (OK), Jerry Moran (KS), David Perdue (GA), Rob Portman (OH), Pat Roberts (KS), Marco Rubio (FL), Ben Sasse (NE), Tim Scott (SC), Luther Strange (AL), Dan Sullivan (AR), John Thune (SD), Thom Tillis (NC), Roger Wicker (MS), Todd Young (IN).
  • 14 Democrats: Michael Bennet (CO), Richard Blementhal (CT), Maria Cantwell (WA), Christopher Coons (DE), Joe Donnelly (IN), Joni Ernst (IA), Kristen Gillibrand (NY), Margaret Wood Hassan (NH), Joe Manchin (WV), Claire McCaskill (MO), Robert Menendez (NJ), Bill Nelson (FL), Gary Peters (MI), Charles Schumer (NY), Ron Wyden (OR).

(2) HR1697 was introduced by Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) and has 240 co-sponsors:

  • 177 Republicans
  • 63 Democrats

S 720 was referred to the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs on March 23, 2017. Its companion bill, HR 1697, was referred to the House Financial Services Committee also on March 23, 2017.
The Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports on July 20, 2017, that HR 1697/S 720 “was drafted with the assistance of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee” (AIPAC). Indeed, AIPAC’s 2017 lobbying agenda identifies passage of this bill as one of its top lobbying priorities for the year.
The two bills that will make it a felony if you support any boycott of Israel also have the support of the thoroughly-cucked Christians United for Israel.
Did you know that, according to a list compiled in 2012, there are 41 members of Congress (29 in the House; 12 in the Senate) who have dual US-Israeli citizenship, which means they have dual loyalties?

The above list is dated in that Barney Frank, Henry Waxman and Anthony Weiner are no longer representatives.
Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-MD), 73, who introduced S720 and whose grandparents were Russian Jewish immigrants, is on the above list. The family name was originally Kardonsky.
In 2015, Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL), 55, who introduced HR 1697, wrote a letter to the New York Times condemning the paper for a graphic on members of Congress opposed to Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement, which initially identified Jewish lawmakers with a bold yellow highlight. Roskam, who opposed the nuclear deal, called the graphic “anti-Semitic” and that it “feeds the canard of dual loyalty that legitimizes prejudice toward Jews worldwide.”
What is needed is an updated list. Alas, as L. Michael Hager — co-founder and former director general of the International Development Law Organization, Rome — discovered, it is extremely difficult to identify members of Congress who hold dual citizenship and to ascertain the second nationality of those members.
In October 2014, Hagen filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Congressional Research Service (CRS) for the names of members of Congress with dual citizenship. In January 2015, he finally got a non-answer in a telephone call from a legal officer of the Library of Congress. After reminding Hagen that Congress and the CRS by extension are exempt from FOIA requests, the officer said CRS does not collect dual citizenship data.
Hagen writes:

“That’s bad news for those of us who believe that citizens should know if their representatives in Congress (and senior government officials and judges, for that matter) owe allegiance to any other nation….
Without transparency on dual citizenship, Americans remain in the dark, free to speculate on which representatives may have divided loyalties…. The lack of transparency is dangerous, for it erodes trust in government, creating credibility doubts where there should be none and allowing some conflicts to continue undetected, without question or debate.
Thus the first requirement is transparency. We need a government agency (presumably the CRS) or a non-governmental organization to disclose the names and non-U.S. national affiliations of Members of Congress and senior government officials and to track and report on this issue.
Secondly, we need more media attention to the subject of dual citizenship….
Beyond the threshold issue of transparency are equally important questions of whether a dual citizen elected to Congress or appointed to a senior USG position should be required to renounce his or her citizenship in the second nation. Even if American law continues to allow the government service of dual citizens, should it not require such persons at least to recuse themselves from participating in decisions or policy debates that relate to their second nationality?….
Conflicts of interest and apparent conflicts by public officials erode trust in government. Allowing dual citizenship in Congress (and in the Executive and Judicial Branches) to flourish under cover of non-disclosure puts our democracy at risk.
It’s time to bring this issue into open debate.”

To their credit, both the ACLU and MoveOn.org oppose S720/HR1697. In a letter urging senators to oppose the bill, the ACLU’s national political director Faiz Shakir wrote:

“We take no position for or against the effort to boycott Israel or any foreign country, for that matter. However, we do assert that the government cannot, consistent with the First Amendment, punish U.S. persons based solely on their expressed political beliefs.”

President Trump ends Obama administration's insane policy of arming Syrian jihadists

The United States is supposed to be fighting Muslim jihadists like ISIS/Islamic State and Al Qaeda.
Under Obama, however, the CIA has been arming and training so-called rebels in Syria who, we are told, are “moderates,” but in reality are jihadists. See:

The proof? — An email from Jacob Sullivan to “H” (Hillary Clinton?), dated February 12, 2012, in which Sullivan states “AQ [Al Qaeda] is on our side in Syria”.

Note: Jacob Sullivan, 40, had worked under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the State Department’s Director of Policy Planning from Feb. 4, 2011 to Feb. 15, 2013. (Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State from Jan. 21, 2009 to Feb. 1, 2013.) Sullivan was senior policy adviser to Hillary’s failed 2016 presidential campaign. If Hillary had won the election, Sullivan would be a contender for the position of National Security Advisor.

Below is Sullivan’s email:

Now, President Trump is ending Obama’s insane policy of arming Syrian jihadists.
The Washington Post reports, July 19, 2017, that “President Trump has decided to end the CIA’s covert program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels battling the government of Bashar al-Assad.”
But this being the anti-Trump Washington Post, the paper snidely calls President Trump’s decision “a move long sought by Russia,” as if Trump does not have a mind of his own.
WaPo continues:

The program [of arming Syrian “rebels”] was a central plank of a policy begun by the Obama administration in 2013 to put pressure on Assad to step aside, but even its backers have questioned its efficacy since Russia deployed forces in Syria two years later.
Officials said the phasing out of the secret program reflects Trump’s interest in finding ways to work with Russia, which saw the anti-Assad program as an assault on its interests. The shuttering of the program is also an acknowledgment of Washington’s limited leverage and desire to remove Assad from power. […]
Officials said Trump made the decision to scrap the CIA program nearly a month ago, after an Oval Office meeting with CIA Director Mike Pompeo and national security adviser H.R. McMaster ahead of a July 7 meeting in Germany with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Spokesmen for the National Security Council and the CIA declined to comment.
After the Trump-Putin meeting, the United States and Russia announced an agreement to back a new cease-fire in southwest Syria, along the Jordanian border, where many of the CIA-backed rebels have long operated. Trump described the limited cease-fire deal as one of the benefits of a constructive working relationship with Moscow. […]
The decision on the CIA-backed rebels will be welcomed by Moscow, which focused its firepower on those fighters after it intervened in Syria in 2015. […]
With the end of the CIA program, U.S. involvement in Syria now consists of a vigorous air campaign against the Islamic State and a Pentagon-run train-and-equip program in support of the largely Kurdish rebel force that is advancing on Islamic State strongholds in Raqqa and along the Euphrates River valley.”

Father Daniel Maes, a Flemish priest who had lived in Syria since 2010, will certainly welcome President Trump’s ending of Obama’s insane policy of arming Syrian jihadists.

According to 79-year-old Fr. Maes, the western media’s coverage of the Syrian war is based on lies. The problem is not Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who does not persecute Christians. Rather, the problem is U.S.-NATO politicians who support ISIS and Al Nusra (the name of Al Qaeda in Syria) in their quest to topple the Syrian government. As Fr. Maes puts it,

“Christians in Syria suffer from the fact that their fellow-Christians in the West forsake them. They simply do not understand. The real terrorist leaders are in the West and Saudi Arabia. Without Putin, Syria would have ceased to exist.”

Asked by journalist Eric van de Beek why so many countries (U.S., NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel) want to get rid of Assad, Fr. Maes replies:

“In 2009, Qatar asked Bashar al-Assad to permit running a pipeline through Syria to the Mediterranean. Assad said, ‘We are not going to do that because we are already working on such a pipeline with Russia and Iran.’ Then the war began. Not in 2011.
We must not forget: Homs [a city in western Syria] is an important location for the passage of the pipeline. It’s no coincidence that the violence started right there, and that Qatar’s TV station Al Jazeera was on top of it.
For the West, it is unacceptable that Syria is still one of the few countries with a central bank that is truly independent and that the country had no state debt and thus did not need to be ‘saved’.
And the Turks. They just want to revive the Ottoman empire. It’s scandalous what they did in Aleppo. The city of Aleppo was the industrial heart of Syria. The Turks dismantled all of the factories in a few days and took them to Turkey.
Israel is also a very important motor behind the conflict. The Zionists want a pure Jewish state from the Nile to the Euphrates. They want to chop up Syria into a group of small, weak states, fighting each other. Likewise the old Roman motto: Divide et empera. Divide and rule.

The Israelis are bombarding Syria, they treat injured terrorists and they deliver weapons.
I think Zionism is as bad for Judaism as ISIS is for Islam. But let’s not say that out loud, for many Protestants might take you for the devil.”

While acknowledging that the Russians are aiding Assad partly out of self-interest, Fr. Maes nevertheless points out that:

“Putin is a true Christian, wanting to defend Christianity. And he also wants a multipolar world order, in which no country dominates the rest. It annoys Putin that the Americans do not play by international rules. They overthrew the Ukrainian government, and then had the nerve to say that the Russians responded so aggressively. Syria is a sovereign country. That is what Putin emphasises. He also says: ‘We are not there for the protection of Assad, but for the protection of the Syrian statehood.’ Russia doesn’t want another failed state, like Iraq and Libya. And let’s not forget: The Russian military is the only foreign army in Syria with the consent of the Syrian government. What are other countries doing there? The Americans? The French? The Saudis? They have no right to be there. They are working on the destruction of Syria.”

Fr. Maes is right about Israel aiding the Syrian jihadists. See my post, “Pact with the devil: Israel gives weapons and free medical care to Syrian jihad,” Dec. 21, 2015.

In ending the CIA’s arming of Syrian rebels jihadists, President Trump will also reduce the outflow of Syrian “refugees” into Europe and America.
God bless President Trump!

French rabbi Rav Touitou applauds Muslim invasion of Europe

I saw this meme on an Internet chat forum:

Rav David Touitou, a Haredi or ultra Orthodox Jew, lives in Ashdod, France. His Facebook page is here.
By “Messiah,” Rabbi Touitou means the long-awaited Jewish messiah, not Jesus Christ. (See “Prophet Zechariah foretold the coming of Jesus Christ” on why Jews don’t believe Jesus is Christ.)
Touitou’s belief is eerily similar to that of ISIS or the Islamic State, who maintain that we are in the end days and that the role of ISIS is to hasten the apocalypse and the arrival of the Muslim messiah, Mahdi, who will lead Muslims to victory before the end of the world.
Here’s the text of what Rabbi Touitou said in the above meme, and the Google Translation from English into French:

“The Messiah will come only when Edom, Europe, Christianity has totally fallen. So I ask you, is it good news that Muslims are invading Europe? It’s excellent news! It means the coming of the Messiah! Excellent news!”
“Le Messie ne viendra que lorsque Edom, l’Europe, le christianisme est totalement tombé. Je vous demande donc, est-ce une bonne nouvelle que les musulmans envahissent l’Europe? C’est une excellente nouvelle! Cela signifie l’arrivée du Messie! D’excellentes nouvelles!”

I don’t like secondary sources, and always strive to find the primary source for something.
So I went searching and found this video of Rabbi Touitou saying those words:
https://www.liveleak.com/ll_embed?f=4b2c56491272
Some comments on the above video from the video’s LiveLeak page:

“rare glimpse into the modern jew and how they see goyim. i tell ppl all the time they are no better than muslims, and they just stare at me like wtf”
“Zionism = Wahhabism = Salafism the same shithole. Israel make war by proxy in Iraq and Syria for making their satanic agenda.
“Again it is the Jews benefitting.”
“and some people ask themselves why so much nations persecuted or kicked the jews out in the last 5000 years.”
“See, people. I’ve told you this. You block me. You tell me I’m a ‘racist’ or ‘anti-Semitic’. Jews are the biggest racist there is. While keeping their culture safe in gated communities, they want to flood yours and mine with madness and then call you a racist when you say anything about it. These jews are hell-bent on destroying all other people.”
“Radical Judaism is not unlike radical Islam. The Jews who are Zionists instigate and perpetuate there long term plan to destroy the order of the world through there corruption of the global order. Chaos.”
“Why would god choose the people who murdered his son? Make any sense?”

Les Brigandes, an all-female French nationalist, anti-globalist pop group, quoted Rabbi Touitou at the beginning of their song, “The Great Replacement”.

In an interview with the blog European Civil War, Les Brigandes said their purpose is to defend French culture:

“We defend the freedom of peoples and communities to organize and live in accordance with their consciousness, their customs, and their beliefs. We thus defend diversity against the standardizations of globalism….
[T]the globalist oligarchy continues to advance by crushing all national, religious, familial, and natural obstacles. One thing particularly new that can be noted is the madness of the immigrant invasion: for the first time, governments organize the invasion of their own countries, and pay the invaders with their own peoples’ money!
There is a purpose to this, obviously. An economic purpose (lower salaries, a new class of rootless people more disposed to buy and consume in the West than in Zimbabwe or Libya), a cultural purpose (pauperizing the masses and destroying their identity), but also, which is never said, a messianic purpose. In truth, the oligarchy, in concert with the global religions, is getting ready to unify internationally the masses of the entire world, including their religious motivations, for the purpose of definitively consolidating the New World Order. We see this in the ecumenical politics conducted by personages like the Dalai Lama or Pope Francis. The migratory crisis accelerates the process. There are two possible solutions to the crisis:
1) A progressive fusion of these Muslim masses with the European peoples (both adopting the new American conformity). This would pertain to a syncretist evolution. In current conditions, this hypothesis is highly unlikely, given the orientation of conquering Islam, which is not participating in the dialogue.
2) A crisis that will never stop growing and which could culminate in a declared civil war. Such a crisis can only favor a yet louder cry for global unity, religious as well as political, just as the last two world wars favored the emergence of a world government to keep the peace. A crisis always calls for a solution, and the masses are always more disposed to accept the tyranny of peace and ‘love’ after a war that might have robbed them of life.
In either case, massive immigration will further the program of worldwide political and religious unification, which the Christian tradition names ‘the reign of Antichrist.’

Sunday Devotional: Prophet Zechariah foretold the coming of Jesus Christ

Zechariah 9:9-10

Thus says the LORD:
Rejoice heartily, O daughter Zion,
shout for joy, O daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king shall come to you;
a just savior is he,
meek, and riding on an ass,
on a colt, the foal of an ass.
He shall banish the chariot from Ephraim,
and the horse from Jerusalem;
the warrior’s bow shall be banished,
and he shall proclaim peace to the nations.
His dominion shall be from sea to sea,
and from the River to the ends of the earth.

“a just savior is he, meek, and riding on an ass, on a colt, the foal of an ass.”
That sentence, proclaimed by the prophet Zechariah, is only one of many foretellings of the coming of Jesus Christ in the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament.
Below are some more foretellings:

Isaiah 7:14

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Numbers 24:17

there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

Micah 5:2

But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Jeremiah 23:5

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

Zechariah 9:9

behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

Zechariah 11:12

So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

Psalm 22:1, 16, 18

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

they pierced my hands and my feet.

They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Psalm 16:10

For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

All of which raises the question of why most Jews, then and now, refuse to believe that Jesus is Messiah.
Among the reasons why they don’t, according to the article “Why Don’t Jews Believe In Jesus?,” are:

  • The Jewish Messiah must be descended on his father’s side from King David, but Jesus was not because Christians say he was the product of a virgin birth and therefore had no father. (Hmm, does that mean Jesus is not Jewish?)
  • Jews don’t believe in miracles: “Even if the individual claiming personal revelation performs miracles [as Jesus did], there is still no verification that he is a genuine prophet. Miracles do not prove anything. All they show—assuming they are genuine—is that he has certain powers. It has nothing to do with his claim of prophecy. Judaism, unique among all of the world’s major religions, does not rely on ‘claims of miracles’ as the basis for its religion. In fact, the Bible says that God sometimes grants the power of ‘miracles’ to charlatans….”

Now you see why the Talmud, the collection of the sayings and writings of rabbis regarded as superior even to the Torah, calls Jesus a “bastard,” “fool” and “charlatan,” His mother Mary a “whore,” and Christians “idolators” and less than human. (See Rev. I. B. Pranaitis, The Talmud Unmasked: The Secret Rabbinical Teachings Concerning Christians; first published in St. Petersburg in 1892.; and “Truth About the Talmud“.)
In his 1991 essay in First Things, “When Jews Are Christians,” David Novak, a Jew, explains that there are three types of Jewish converts to Christianity:

  1. Fake converts: “Secret Jews” who converted to Christianity not out of a genuine belief, but for self-interested opportunistic reasons — to escape persecution (as during the Inquisition), or for social and/or economic gain.
  2. Genuine converts: Jews who sincerely believe Christianity is the true faith, and no longer think of themselves as Jews.
  3. Jewish Christians, aka Messianic Jews: Novak identifies this group as a new kind of Jewish converts to Christianity — Jewish converts to Christianity who claim still to be Jews and still to be practicing Judaism, insisting that they are practicing the true Judaism. Perversely, the State of Israel rejects these Jewish Christians or Messianic Jews as Jews. In 1989, Israel’s Supreme Court ruled against two Jewish Christians, Jerry and Shirley Beresford, who petitioned for Israeli citizenship as Jews under the Law of Return, which guarantees immediate Israeli citizenship to every Jew. The Court rejected their petition on the grounds that the Law of Return specifically precludes any Jew who has affiliated with another, non-Jewish, religious community, never mind the fact that the Law of Return is applied to Jewish atheists although atheism, arguably, is a form of religion.

Novak takes a different position than the Israeli Supreme Court. Claiming to speak for “normative Judaism,” Novak maintains Jewish Christians are still Jews because:

“Jewish status is defined by the divine election of Israel and his descendants. One does not become a Jew by one’s own volition. Even in the case of converts to Judaism . . . A gentile’s choice to become a Jew is a necessary but not sufficient condition of conversion . . . the convert’s choice is not sufficient to make him or her a Jew: it only makes one a candidate for conversion. The actual conversion itself is the act of an authoritative Jewish Tribunal who . . . Like God . . . is under no compulsion to elect, which is to say convert, anyone. Since Jews are elected by God, there is absolutely nothing any Jew can do to remove himself or herself from the Covenant.”

All of that only works if the Jews of today are actually biological descendants of the ancient Hebrews with whom God had made His covenant. The problem is there is compelling DNA evidence that Ashkenazi Jews, who comprise 90% of the world’s (and U.S.) Jews, are descendants of the Khazars, an amalgam of Turkic clans that settled the Caucasus in the early centuries CE and converted to Judaism in the 8th century. See:

Revelation 2:9

“I know the blasphemy of them
which say they are Jews, and are not,
but are the synagogue of Satan.”


May the love and peace of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Gay Pride 2017: Corruption of children

It’s that time again.
This month, cities across the world hosted what used to be called “Gay Pride” parades, now renamed simply “Pride”.
The following are some of the more sanitized scenes from “Pride” parades, showing just what they’re so proud about:

As in prior “Pride” parades, parents brought their little kids.
A comedian named Jim Gaffigan (who identifies himself as Catholic) and his wife, Jeannie, brought their young children to the parade in New York City. Gaffigan tweets:

This is what little children saw at those PedoPride parades:

In the video below, you’ll hear a man’s voice say, referring to the little girl: “It’s her dad dancing”:

Fake Terrorist: ISIS jihadist calling for attacks on U.S. & Australia is a Jew who lived with his parents in Florida

In March 2017, in separate arrests, a black man in St. Louis and two father-and-son dual US-Israeli citizens were arrested for pretending to be anti-Semites who made a rash of bomb and other threats against Jewish organizations in the U.S., Europe, Australia and New Zealand. See:

Yesterday, I came across another case of fake threats, by a Jewish young man living with his parents in Florida, who pretended to be an ISIS/Islamic State jihadist threatening to attack the U.S. and Australia.

Elise Potaka and Luke McMahon report for Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald that on Sept. 9, 2015, the FBI arrested 20-year-old Joshua Ryne Goldberg at his parents’ home in Orange Park, a suburb of Jacksonville, Florida, for pretending to be an Australian-based Islamic State (IS) jihadist and for “distribution of information relating to explosives, destructive devices, and weapons of mass destruction in furtherance of an activity that constitutes a Federal crime of violence”.
The police made the arrest after an FBI joint investigation with the Australian Federal Police based on information provided by Fairfax Media — one of Australia’s largest media companies and the owner of the Sydney Morning Herald.
Calling himself “Australi Witness,” Goldberg had posed online as an IS supporter working with other jihadists on plans to attack individuals and events in Australia and the United States. He even posted pictures of a bomb that he said he was making with “2 lbs of explosives inside”.

Goldberg is Jewish, not a Muslim, and has no real-world links with the Islamic State or any other terrorist group.
US Attorney Lee Bentley III said Goldberg:

  • Instructed a confidential source how to make a bomb similar to two used in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings hoax, with nails, metal and other items dipped in rat poison.
  • Provided five web links to sites containing instructions to make explosives as part of a plot to explode a bomb at a memorial ceremony in Kansas City, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The affidavit, released by Special agent William Berry of US Customs and Border Protection, says Goldberg initially denied to police that he had distributed information on how to make a bomb, but later admitted it and “further admitted that he believed the information would create a genuine bomb”.
In the leadup to an exhibition in Garland, Texas, at which pictures of the Prophet Mohammed were to be displayed, posing as “Australi Witness,” Goldberg tweeted the event’s address and urged people to go there with “weapons, bombs or with knifes”. Two Muslim men attempted an attack at the exhibition, and were killed by police. Australi Witness then praised them online as martyrs. Australi Witness Goldberg also urged followers to target Australian cartoonist Larry Pickering, who has previously depicted the Prophet Mohammed.
Goldberg, as Australi Witness, posed online as prominent Australian lawyer, Josh Bornstein. Goldberg established a blog on the Times of Israel in the lawyer’s name and, pretending to be Bornstein, posted an inflammatory article calling for the “extermination” of Palestinians. The Times retracted and apologized for the article. For his part, Bornstein said in a public statement that “I deplore racism…I’ve fought racism since I was four years old”.
When confronted, Goldberg boasted he had fooled “that guy” Bornstein into thinking that the online radical right-wing website “Daily Stormer did it.”
According to Wikipedia, Goldberg also pretended to be these other online personas:

  • White supremacist neo-Nazi on The Daily Stormer, Reddit, and European88.
  • Radical feminist.
  • Woman-hating misogynist on Reddit, advocating corrective rape against “whores and feminazis”, and offering tips on how to do so without getting caught.


Goldberg’s Australi Witness persona fooled journalists and terrorism experts.
As an example, Rita Katz, 54 — a Jew born in Iraq who is a terrorism analyst, co-founder of the D.C.-based private intelligence firm Search International Terrorist Entities (SITE) Intelligence Group, consultant for US and foreign governments, and has testified before Congress on online terrorist activities — said “IS supporter” Australi Witness held a “prestige” position in online jihadi circles and was “part of the hard core of a group of individuals who constantly look for targets for other people to attack”.
You can’t make this stuff up! — but evidently, terrorism expert Rita Katz can.

According to Wikipedia:

  • On Sept. 15, 2015, Goldberg appeared in court where he was ordered to undergo a 30-day mental health evaluation to determine his fitness to stand trial. If tried and convicted, Goldberg faces 20 years in prison.
  • On December 14, 2015, after an examination by psychologist Lisa Feldman at Federal Detention Center, Miami, US Magistrate Judge James Klindt ruled Goldberg mentally incompetent to stand trial and Goldberg was ordered to be undergo psychiatric treatment for four months at the Federal Medical Center, Butner.
  • On June 15, 2016, appearing again before Judge Klindt, Goldberg was described by prison psychiatrists as “improving”, and that there was a “good chance” of him being returned to competency to stand trial. Another status update was scheduled by Klindt for October 15, 2016.
