The Talmudic sage Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai was not only known for his Torah scholarship and piety. He also served as a guide to his people.
A couple got married. Their marriage was one of mutual respect and cooperation. Blessed with an ample livelihood and good health, their life together lacked only one thing, children.
Years went by. Aware of the precept in Jewish law that allows divorce if a couple does not have children after many years, the husband decided to seek a divorce. They presented themselves before Rabbi Shimon. Feeling the heartache of their predicament, Rabbi Shimon made a novel suggestion: "If it is a divorce you feel you need, then I will see to it that a divorce is done. However," continued Rabbi Shimon, "just as your wedding was celebrated with great pomp and festival, so too should the end of your marriage be celebrated with great pomp and festival." Though puzzled by this instruction, the couple agreed.
Being of means, the couple saw to it that fine wine should be served at their divorce celebration. The husband drank plenty, and, feeling a bit inebriated, he turned to his soon-to-be-former-wife and said, "My dear wife, choose anything you wish to have from my home to take with you back to your father's house. Take the thing you like best. Take whatever you want." After a few more L" Chaims over good wine, the host fell asleep (some would say â€œpassed outâ€) on his couch.
The party ended with the host still fast asleep on his couch. Now it was time for the wife to choose from her husband's possessions and return to her father's house. She promptly ordered her servants to carry the couch upon which her husband lay, fast asleep, to her father's home.
Didn't take long before the husband awoke from his stupor to find himself in unexpected surroundings. "Why am I here?" he asked his wife. "Well," she answered, "I looked around our home to find the most precious item that I wanted to bring with me to my father's home. I saw the gold and silver and precious gems. But I could not find anything more precious to me than you. So here you are!"
The couple again presented themselves to Rabbi Shimon. Pleased to hear the wife's cleverness, Rabbi Shimon blessed them with healthy children and indeed, G-d blessed them with children!
In this week's Torah portion, Parshat Ki Seitzei, we read about the laws of a Jewish divorce. The Talmud says that when a couple gets divorced from a first marriage, even the altar in the Holy Temple sheds tears. But there are many ways of describing a sad event. Why the altar shedding tears?
The answer: People are made with various levels of tolerance for suffering. For some people, the mere sight of blood brings them to tears. Others can be surgeons who not only see blood, they cause the bleeding. The inanimate, as is a stone, has no feelings. A person who is not disturbed by sufferings is often compared to stone.
The altar in the Holy Temple was made of stone. Blood was poured on it all day. The stone altar never expressed any emotion. Nevertheless, our sages tell us that when a divorce occurs it is different. Even the cold stone altar which is immune to pain altogether sheds tears from the tragedy of a divorce.
Postscript: I am not judging those who are divorced. Even a necessary and wise divorce does not diminish the tragic reality of the pain that the involved parties endure. May G-d bless our homes with good health, peace, love and tranquility.
May G-d protect our brethren in Israel and the world over from harm. May He protect the armed forces of the United States wherever they may be. May G-d send us Moshiach speedily. Shabbat Shalom! Chazak! L'Chaim!

In 1999, a book was published entitled "The House of Rothschild: The World's Banker 1849-1999 ". It was written by Niall Ferguson, who, according to the inside jacket cover, is "the first historian with unrestricted access to all the surviving Rothschild archives." According to the inside jacket blurb, the book concluded Ferguson's "myth-breaking portrait of one of the most fascinating and powerful families of modern times".
It further stated:
"From the Crimea to World War II, wars repeatedly threatened the stability of the Rothschilds' worldwide empire. Despite these global upheavals, theirs remained the biggest bank in the world up until the First World War, its interests extending far beyond the realm of finance. They controlled a pan-European railway network; they also ran a worldwide mining empire based on Spanish mercury, African gold and diamonds, Burmese rubies and Russian oil. And as the richest family of modern times, they acquired the greatest art collections and built the most sumptuous palaces of the age."
"Their economic might gave them a unique political leverage. Disraeli and Churchill were their friends, Bismarck and Hitler their foes. Yet the Rothschilds' failure to establish themselves successfully in the United States proved fateful. As financial power shifted from London to New York after 1914 and as continental Europe fell under the thrall of Marxism and fascism, the Rothschilds' power waned."
Let's take a closer look.
First of all, Ferguson admits that he was allowed access to Rothschild archives up until 1914…so… so the title is at first exposed to be a little misleading. It should read 1849-1913.
Why was Ferguson denied access into the Rothschild archives of 1914 and beyond? Were the Rothschilds hiding anything? According to the jacket financial power shifted from London to New York…from this we are lead to believe that the Rothschilds (uncharacteristically) had no hand in the carnage of the First and Second World Wars.
It is a matter of history that up until the First World War, the Rothschilds financed both sides of numerous conflicts, reaping rewards from the winners and the losers. Could it be that the Rothschilds did indeed have a hand in the First and Second World War? Could it be that the reason the Rothschilds tried to distance themselves from those wars was because their good name would not have survived had it been associated with the massive slaughter of millions of people, including the millions of European Jews consumed in the Holocaust?
Somehow New York bankers would take the heat for financing the First and Second World War. The financing burden of World War I would fall squarely on the shoulders of John Pierpont Morgan. The Rothschilds would comfortably be able point their collective finger across the Atlantic and keep what remained of their image of respectability. Did the Rothschilds merely deploy a new phase in their banking tactics? Did they simply go from overt war financing to covert war financing? If so, that would mean that they were still financing both sides of the conflicts. Did they finance both the allies and the axis powers during the First and Second World War? If so then the jacket misled us again. If both the allies and the axis powers were customers of the Rothschilds-through their secretly affiliated agents, then they had no foe in Hitler. Hitler would have been a customer. A customer is a friend not a foe. This theory, as outlandish as it may appear is at the very least….plausible.
Taking it another step further. Could it be possible that Hitler was more than a customer? Was Hitler a secret agent of the Rothschilds? "Preposterous!", you may be thinking. After all, didn't Hitler accuse international Jewish bankers of engineering the Versailles Treaty which destroyed Germany financially? Wasn't Hitler's wrath aimed squarely in the direction of the international Jewish bankers, namely the House of Rothschild?
Hitler did say, "The bigger the lie…the more people will believe it".
Think about it...Did Hitler kill any Jewish international bankers? The answer is no.
[Note:In fact some members of the Warburg banking family were given a Nazi escort out of Holland in a sealed train. ..When the Gestapo went to the Rothschild mansion to arrest the head of the Vienna branch they were told by the butler to come back the following day. They did. Then they had to wait for the Baron to finish his lunch...There WAS the case of the estranged wife of a French Rothschild. "Why should the Germans harm me?" she had asked her husband in 1940. "I am from an old French family." Despite disowning the Rothschild family name (unheard of!) and reverting to her original title of nobility, she was arrested by the Gestapo in July 1944 and sent by the last transport to Ravensbruck where she was brutally murdered...]
Let's back up a bit here. Let's take a closer look at that financial shift from London to New York. Simply put…the shift from the House of Rothschild to the House of Morgan.
According to Gary Allen's best-selling book "None Dare Call It CONSPIRACY":
"Morgan is referred to by many, including Congressman Louis McFadden, (a banker who for ten years headed the House Banking and Currency Committee), as the top American agent of the English Rothschilds."[Page 44]
So much for the financial shift.
So the question remains…Was Hitler a Rothschild customer or an agent as well?
In 1972, a book was released entitled, "The Mind of Hitler: The Secret War Report" by Walter C. Langer. According to the book, the author, a psychoanalyst, was approached by Col. William "Wild Bill" Donovan, of OSS fame, to conduct a psychological investigation into the mind of Hitler.
Many books on the subject of Adolph Hitler refer to Langer's work. Within the book is a curious investigation into Hitler's origins. In fact, there is mention that Hitler had been linked to the Rothschilds in a book written by an ex-Gestapo officer. Langer notes that the "very intriguing hypothesis" but downplays the Rothschild connection saying, it "is sounder not to base our reconstruction on such slim evidence but to seek firmer foundations. Nevertheless, we can leave it as a possibility that requires further verification."
Was the Hitler-Rothschild link further verified? No. Actually Langer's report, which was not widely circulated, even within the intelligence community, was classified top secret and holed up for 29 years. When it was published, the Rothschild link was downplayed in the Introduction as well as in the Afterword.
The Afterword stated:
"There is no reason to believe the unlikely story told by Langer's informant that Hitler's grandmother Maria Anna Schicklgruber, a peasant woman in her forties from the Waldviertel of rural Austria, had had an intimate liaison with a Baron Rothschild in Vienna…"
"The point of overriding psychological and historical importance is not whether it is true that Hitler had a Jewish grandfather; but whether he believed that it might be true…"
(Donovan may have wanted us to consider that if there was a slim possibility that Hitler's grandfather was a Rothschild…then Hitler's hatred of Jews stemmed from his revulsion of having Jewish blood coursing through his veins. The last thing Donovan may have wanted us to consider was that Hitler, though illegitimate, was an acknowledged member of the Rothschild family who was assigned a duty that required keeping his loyalties to the banking family very hidden.)
What was not mentioned in the book was that Langer's brother William L. Langer, was head of Donovan's Board of Analysts often referred to as Donovan's "College of Cardinals". Did Donovan really need to understand Hitler or was this report designed to throw off post-war researchers. After all, Donovan was J.P.Morgan's lawyer. J.P.Morgan was the American agent for the English Rothschilds…It's simple math folks. (Incidentally it is known that Donovan had at least one secret meeting with Hitler in the 1920's.)
After 29 years the ex-Gestapo officer's book would be long out of circulation. (Its importance was not appreciated as it came out in 1941, years before the world learned of the Nazi atrocities) The Langer book was designed, quite possibly, to prevent post-war researchers from going through the pains of digging it up….
This researcher did manage to find "Inside The Gestapo",the above-mentioned book written by Hansjurgen Koehler.Koehler was Hitler's bodyguard at Bergestgaden.
I'll leave it to the reader to determine the credibilty of the evidence presented in Koehler's,"Inside The Gestapo".

A sphere is an emanation. Creation emanates from Nothingness through the process of sefirotic hishtalshelus.
Here is a tale of courage, integrity and humility that is only now coming to light, some 70 years after the fact.
The Leica is the pioneer 35mm camera. From a nitpicking point of view, it wasn't the very first still camera to use 35mm movie film, but it was the first to be widely publicized and successfully marketed.
It created the "candid camera" boom of the 1930s.
It is a German product - precise, minimalist, utterly efficient. Behind its worldwide acceptance as a creative tool was a family-owned, socially oriented firm that, during the Nazi era, acted with uncommon grace, generosity and modesty.
E. Leitz Inc., designer and manufacturer of Germany's most famous photographic product, saved its Jews.
And Ernst Leitz II, the steely eyed Protestant patriarch who headed the closely held firm as the Holocaust loomed across Europe, acted in such a way as to earn the title, "the photography industry's Schindler."
As George Gilbert, a veteran writer on topics photographic, told the story at last week's convention of the Leica Historical Society of America in Portland, Ore., Leitz Inc., founded in Wetzlar in 1869, had a tradition of enlightened behavior toward its workers.
Pensions, sick leave, health insurance - all were instituted early on at Leitz, which depended for its work force upon generations of skilled employees - many of whom were Jewish.
The 'Leica Freedom Train'
As soon as Adolf Hitler was named chancellor of Germany in 1933, Ernst Leitz II began receiving frantic calls from Jewish associates, asking for his help in getting them and their families out of the country.
As Christians, Leitz and his family were immune to Nazi Germany's Nuremberg laws, which restricted the movement of Jews and limited their professional activities.
To help his Jewish workers and colleagues, Leitz quietly established what has become known among historians of the Holocaust as "the Leica Freedom Train," a covert means of allowing Jews to leave Germany in the guise of Leitz employees being assigned overseas.
Employees, retailers, family members, even friends of family members were "assigned" to Leitz sales offices inFrance, Britain, Hong Kong and the United States.
Leitz's activities intensified after the Kristallnacht of November 1938, during which synagogues and Jewish shops were burned across Germany.
Before long, German "employees" were disembarking from the ocean liner Bremen at a New York pier and making their way to the Manhattan office of Leitz Inc., where executives quickly found them jobs in the photographic industry.
Each new arrival had around his or her neck the symbol of freedom - a new Leica.
The refugees were paid a stipend until they could find work. Out of this migration came designers, repair technicians, salespeople, marketers and writers for the photographic press.
Keeping the story quiet
The "Leica Freedom Train" was at its height in 1938 and early 1939, delivering groups of refugees to New Yorkevery few weeks. Then, with the invasion of Poland on Sept. 1, 1939, Germany closed its borders.
By that time, hundreds of endangered Jews had escaped to America, thanks to the Leitzes' efforts.
How did Ernst Leitz II and his staff get away with it? Leitz Inc. was an internationally recognized brand that reflected credit on the newly resurgent Reich. The company produced range-finders and other optical systems for the German military. Also, the Nazi government desperately needed hard currency from abroad, and Leitz's single biggest market for optical goods was the United States.
Even so, members of the Leitz family and firm suffered for their good works. A top executive, Alfred Turk, was jailed for working to help Jews and freed only after the payment of a large bribe.
Leitz's daughter, Elsie Kuhn-Leitz, was imprisoned by the Gestapo after she was caught at the border, helping Jewish women cross into Switzerland. She eventually was freed but endured rough treatment in the course of questioning.
She also fell under suspicion when she attempted to improve the living conditions of 700 to 800 Ukrainian slave laborers, all of them women, who had been assigned to work in the plant during the 1940s.
(After the war, Kuhn-Leitz received numerous honors for her humanitarian efforts, among them the Officier d'honneur des Palms Academic from France in 1965 and the Aristide Briand Medal from the European Academy in the 1970s.)
Why has no one told this story until now? According to the late Norman Lipton, a freelance writer and editor, the Leitz family wanted no publicity for its heroic efforts.
Only after the last member of the Leitz family was dead did the "Leica Freedom Train" finally come to light.
It is now the subject of a book, "The Greatest Invention of the Leitz Family: The Leica Freedom Train," by Frank Dabba Smith, a California- born rabbi currently living in England.

HAIFA UNIVERSITY - AN INTERNATIONAL
DISGRACE by Barry Chamish
One of the tragedies of the recent war is that Haifa University was
not razed to the ground by Hizbollah. We can only ask them to aim
in the next round.
You see Haifa University is home to the mass libeler Steven Plaut.
And he just disgraces the "good" name of the school on a daily basis. I
am one victim of his favorite slander, that of calling innocent people
"neo-Nazis." Note how Haifa University tolerated his humiliation in an
FULL COMPLAINT SENT TO PLAUT'S EMPLOYER:
If you think the University of Haifa has been humiliated by its
professor Steven Plaut, I assure you that unless you take proper
disciplinary steps against him, the recent publicity will be viewed as
mild. I remind you that he called a fellow professor a "Holocaust
denier" and was punished by an Israeli court for doing so.
U.S.-born professor guilty of libeling colleague
By Ira Moskowitz
/Haifa University economist Steven Plaut was convicted last week of
libeling a fellow academic, Neve Gordon of Ben-Gurion University's
Department of Politics and Government, and ordered to pay the plaintiff
NIS 80,000 in compensation plus NIS 15,000 in legal fees.
Plaut, who teaches in the Graduate School of Business Administration,
has called Gordon a "fanatic anti-Semite" and a "Judenrat wannabe."
statements overstep the bounds of free speech and constitute libel,
Nazareth Magistrate's Court Judge Reem Naddaf ruled last week.
This Plaut has not only called me a "Neonazi" on innumerable occasions,
against all the codes of the internet, he has built a web site in my
name humiliating me to the world. Please DO visit www.barry-chamish.com
to see his work.
I now demand that the University of Haifa grow up and take the proper
course of action against its obsessed and ill professor. The following
letter is being forwarded to attorney Dov Even-Or. If you don't take
proper action action against your employee, you will be considered
responsible for the actions he took in your employ. The site must come
down within a week or the University's good name WILL be widely
Plaut will lie and say the site is not his idea. Now you must act like
person in your position must act and reject the lies. For now, I ask
your patience. Please read the following internet reports, understand
how Plaut is ruining the University of Haifa's reputation among
worldwide and take proper action for your university.
Best, Barry Chamish
So bear with me until the end and do read my announcements. Watch him
destroy Haifa University's reputation wherever thinkers gather. And
you get the
idea, write firstname.lastname@example.org and demand that his phoney site with
the phoney address and phone number be removed. This week the radical
www.barrychamish.com was returned by godaddy to my ownership. Now
Plaut's phoney site has to be reverted by dotster to my ownership and
perhaps an attorney will help me out. Write them. But first get to know
a very sick "professor" from an equally ill university:
/In response to my story -- taken from my blog and posted on the
IndyMedia site without my knowledge -- it appears Bukay elicited (or
inspired) the vicious behavior of one Dr. Steven Plaut, a former
American, now Israeli settler and also an academic at the University of
"My own home university, the University of Haifa, has been the scene in
recent days of a saga of leftist campus McCarthyism. It all began when
professor of Middle East political science, David Bukay, was accused by
an Arab student activist, who was not even formally registered in
Bukay's class, a student active in a student communist organization, of
making derogatory comments in class about Arabs," Plaut wrote, and then
made a reference me, making sure to include a lethal dose of slander
that is typical of his modus operandi:
"The allegations were then planted in a local newspaper, and reported
the Arab press. Then one of the Cockburn Cockroaches, a regular
columnist on Counterpunch with views about Jews resembling those of
neonazis, started spreading the allegations about the internet. Kurt
Nimmo is an unemployed New Mexico photographer-wannabe who writes
crackpot articles for Counterpunch and also for the neonazi web site
http://Rense.com. Nimmo routinely refers to all Jews as 'Zionists',
as the new director of the World Bank, and Nimmo makes it clear all
"Zionists" need to be shipped off in cattle cars to nice camps.
I wrote the good professor and asked him to document where I have
claimed "all 'Zionists' need to be shipped off in cattle cars to nice
camps," but naturally he did not respond. I consider this libel -- but
as we know, the laws are sketchy at best when it comes to the internet.
Now look what I am too dignified to publish...for now:
/I was a woman in Plaut's class who was appalled enough by him to
We'll just stick with the hard facts. Look how the professor disgraces
Haifa University and its staff to a world audience. This takes a while,
so enjoy it slowly.
Now imagine a professor who fabricates e-mail addresses, websites and
user names to spread slanders in Israel. Soak in the lies and never
try to justify the immorality of the deceit no matter who it was aimed
spoofing and spamming activities
Messages posted on 13 April 2004 to the ALEF electronic discussion
(which is based at the University of Haifa) seem to indicate something
about Plaut's mentality. These messages, which were posted to ALEF by
somebody else and which seem to report on an email conversation that
Plaut had with someone who was banned from the ALEF forum for excessive
spamming, seem to indicate that Plaut boasted about stealing the ALEF
membership list so that messages could be sent to ALEF members without
being passed through the ALEF system. Specifically, Plaut seems to have
written the following. The typographical errors appeared in the

He also seemed to be connected with somebody called Rocky who,
pretending to be a pro-Zionism Palestinian living in the West Bank,
the pseudonym "Yusuf" to plague the ALEF list with racist emails until
he was excluded from the forum. Look at Rocky's description to see how
Rocky finally made a mistake which spilled the beans.
Rocky, apparently a friend of Steven Plaut (certainly a fellow
conspirator), is a Zionist idiot who harassed the ALEF electronic
discussion forum for a period during the Autumn of 2004.
Rocky masqueraded as a pro-Zionist Palestinian Arab living in the West
Bank, using the pseudonyms "Yusuf Abdullah" and "Yusuf Chouri" for this
Unfortunately for himself and for Plaut, Rocky screwed up, as he
confesses in the first email quoted below, which he sent to Plaut but
which he accidentally copied to all the people named in the cc
(carbon-copy distribution) list for the message. One of the recipients,
Yael Korin, copied it to the ALEF forum. Rocky must have been very het
up when he sent this email, because, when sending it, he repeated the
same error that he admits in the email -- that is, he copied what was
intended to be a private conspiratorial message to many of the people
who were the intended victims of his conspiracy.
Incidentally, Rocky's repeated use of the acronym "BBC" below is
incorrect -- it should be "BCC" or "bcc" (blind carbon-copy
distribution). Coming on top of the fact that his attempted scam was
based on the use of bcc distribution, Rocky's not knowing the correct
name for the feature is is just one more indication of the fact that he
is a schmuck. Dr. Plaut really should choose his fellow conspirators
The emphasis on blind carbon-copy (bcc) is especially interesting
because it is reminiscent of an instruction that Plaut had given a few
months earlier: in April 2004, Plaut had boasted that he had stolen the
ALEF emailing list and said that the best way to fool ALEF subscribers
into believing that they were receiving messages from the ALEF server
was to use bcc when sending out mass-mailings -- see the biographical
entry for Plaut.
Anyhow, here is the email in which Rocky confesses his mistake to
Plaut. The typographical errors appeared in the original:

It just happened. I may have ****ed up royally. I just sent out my
first batch of "[ALEF] Get that monkey off my back" emails. My first
attempts at sending them as BBC all failed. I got the message "There
was a problem. Your BBC contains too many addresses." In the past I
was able to have up to 25 BBCs per each mailing. SO I reducedc it to
20... then 15... then a dozen and still got the error message. So I
transferred the addresses from BBC to CC and was able to send off all
25 of them.
Then it hit me! I forgot to remove YOUR name from the list so your
email went out with those first 25. I'm usually very careful about
things like that which is why I generally only use BBC. But my mind
is pre-occupied with so many other things that need to be done that I
I havonly sent out those first 25 emails. I won't send out the
remainder. I hope this will not cause a problem.
Apparently, Rocky's above email was triggered by the mistake that he
made, a few minutes earlier, when he sent the following email. Again,
the typographical errors appeared in the original:

I strongly suspect that my Hotmail account was sabotaged by Ran

Northern Israel. The help prevent this from
happening again, the good people at Yahoo have installed a security
wall (actually, it's an

Israel-supporting Arab's voice

Re: Arab Fiddle While Nablus Burns"
I know there's plenty of accusatory middle fingers pointed at the IDF
for making that Arab
play "Chopsticks" on his fiddle. From what I can see, they only
wanted to be sure there
were no rocket launchers, small nuclear devices or perhaps a half
dozen Arab midgets with
rocks inside his case. This was a defensive move, pure and simple.
But the pro-Arab
propagandists and certain Jewish intellectual professors connected
the dots and saw a
similarity between Jews made to play at death camps.
This was not the case at that checkpoint. If you were to look closely
at photos, you'd see
quite clearly that there was a hat [with "Go Red Socks" on it] at
this Arab's dusty sandals
and inside that hat was quite a significant collection of Israeli
sheckels. The man was not
there being humiliated. He was there trying to make a few bucks! What
next? Perhaps Ran
HaCohen at the end of a monkey chain playing Richard Wagner tunes?

The email just quoted was triggered by the fact that Ran HaCohen had
complained to Microsoft about the use of a hotmail account, , to send
the racist email quoted below to the ALEF forum. Microsoft disabled
account on 8 December 2004, because it violated the Hotmail Terms of

Plaut quoted above.
Two days before Rocky sent the sequence of emails quoted above, he had
sent the following piece to his list of ALEF subscribers. This email,

prompted by the fact that, after repeated violations, his previous

What, may I ask, is ALEF's purpose? To make Israel safer or
to denegrate her at every turn?
In conclusion, I ask that you reinstate me onto your ALEF
group. I also appeal directly to Avraham "Oz", the wizard
who created the ALEF group. Without his personal efforts to
bring together Jews for Jihad, how would the world
understand why more Jews are in therapy than any other
group on the face of the earth. Continuing along this line
of thought, I cannot help wonder if they make explosive
belts in his size.
I look forward to my re-instatement into ALEF. A letter of
apology would be appreciated but not expected.
Peace. Shalom. Salam.
The email above, which reeks of racism, is a good example of the kind
stuff that Rocky, using the pseudonym "Yusuf Chouri", had been
previously sending to the ALEF forum and for which he had been removed
from the forum. Its use of the word "shvastse" (presumably a typo for
"shvartse", Yiddisch for "black") is just yet another giveaway of that
fact that, while he pretends to be a Palestinian Arab, he is basically
someone whose English is laced with Yiddisch -- he would appear to be a
Now look at this remarkable exchange, sent to me. The reader merely
suggested that Plout appear on Tamar Yonah's radio show on Arutz Sheva
to explain his views, because she often has me as his guest. What is
Plout's answer? He calls Tamar "mentally ill."
/I asked Plaut if he'd be prepared to be interviewed on
Tamar Yona's show. This was his reply!!
--- Steven Plaut
/I do not debate with the mentally ill./
FINALLY. My response in a proper forum:
The Jerusalem Post
February 2, 2006
by Barry Chamish
/As Israel approached the 10th anniversary of the Rabin assassination,
Yediot Ahronot published a survey which showed that 35 percent of
Israelis did not believe the government's version of the murder.
Discounting the Arab sector, which has almost no knowledge of the
close to half of all Israeli Jews believe or suspect the government is
lying to them about the circumstances of Rabin's demise.
Just previous to the release of the poll, long and, I would say,
respectful features about me were printed in a wide variety of Hebrew
publications including Anashim (People), ShofarNews and Ma'ariv. In the
wake of the poll, I was invited to appear on four television programs
a week, including the very staid and establishment "London &
Kirschenbaum" and "Hok Vetzedek" (Law and Justice).
And why not? A good portion of the reason for the poll's result was
directly attributable to my book, "Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?", which
has sold over 34,000 copies in six languages.
I have achieved that elusive prize which escapes almost many Anglo
writers: widespread recognition by mainstream Hebrews peaking Israelis.
Not a bad achievement for someone who dared to write that Yigal Amir
not murder Yitzhak Rabin.
It is this cultural breakthrough that may have generated some
resentment. I've been "accused" of writing about U.F.O.s -- a heinous
crime if there ever was one.
From 1987-99, Israel saw a barrage of unexplained aerial phenomena,
highly publicized by the Hebrew media. Using ethical journalistic
standards, I documented the events and received worldwide recognition
for my efforts. Four episodes of the NBC-TV program Sightings were
dedicated to my discoveries, and in 1999, Fox-TV devoted a full half
hour of prime time to my work. I'm very proud of this period of my
career but the phenomena stopped and I haven't written a word on the
subject in six years.
The next criticism of me is so slanderous that I have actually sued one
obsessive accuser: that is the absurd charge that I am a Holocaust

Internet 71,100 times. A few of those sites are run by the deniers.

anyone who finds my writing useful can copy and paste it into their
As Yaacov Levi, who moderated a pro-Israel Internet discussion group
looked into the issue noted: "[Chamish] is always identified as
pro-Israel and a Holocaust 'believer'. They quote him simply because he
raises questions looking for accountability from the Israeli
What a concept!"
"I also checked out other Web sites of the revisionist genera, they ALL
cite him as pro-Israel and anti-revisionist. Not a one made any tiny
effort to identify him as an ally".
I also wrote to the editors of several of the sites asking them to
confirm the obvious. Jeff Rense, who incidentally is not in my view a
denier, but nonetheless sure doesn't like Zionism, wrote: "At no time,
never once, has Mr. Chamish ever solicited the posting of his work on
site of rense.com".
ONE OF the errors of literally all Israeli writers in English is that
they restrict their audiences to like-minded readers. My audience runs
the gamut of contemporary thinking and by also entering the homes of
enemy, I have neutralized much anti-Semitism worldwide. I do this
indirectly by exposing the crimes of those in power who have brought us
"peace", and, I insist, are endangering the existence of our state.
What has also attracted so much reader loyalty is that the "absurd"
claims I made back in the Oslo days have came true. And the "absurd"
claims of my latest book, "Shabtai Tzvi, Labor Zionism and the
Holocaust" will likewise, all prove to be accurate in time.
Permit me to present a few examples of prescience:
Six years ago, I warned my readers not to vote Ariel Sharon. I insisted
he was installed in the Israeli Right to destroy it from within and
he would immediately appoint Shimon Peres as his foreign minister.
In my latest book, I claim that Ofra Haza did not die of A.I.D.S. but
was poisoned. Three months ago Haza's sister and her attorney Rami
Tzuberi appeared on the T.V. program Mishal Ham with medical
documentation alleging Ofra Haza was poisoned. Both demanded her
exhumation and a reinvestigation of the circumstances of her demise.
One of the central points of my book "Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?", was
that Rabin was not shot twice in the back as the government concluded,
but was actually shot three times, the deadly wound coming from the
On November 3 last year, Channel 2 spent two hours -- I would say --
unintentionally vindicating me in a documentary. The documentary makers
examined Rabin's clothing and said they found the third bullet hole in
the front of his clothing.
So sorry for being right.

By: Rabbi Daniel Lapin
The ADL (Anti-defamation League) and Mr. Abe Foxman are very presumptuous
in imagining they represent the majority of the Jewish community. Mr. Foxman is a
career politician, not a Torah nor Biblical scholar. However, there is some cause
for Jewish concern over whether America would be the reformed Christianity
of her birth, or embrace the pagan Christianity of Rome. Indeed, Rome, her
minions and proxies, have been instigators and implementers of Jewish
persecution throughout history. Having stated this, I would still rather
see and support a morally righteous, tolerant and Christian
America, than have it morph into a Nazi homofascist
Collectivist Cartel, with applied Darwinism as its
modus operendi. Indeed, Hitler had great
contempt for what he referred to as, the
"Christian pity ethic." I do suspect he
was mistaken. Rather than "pity," I
think mercy and compassion.
The Rectification of the 288 Sparks: The Purpose of Judaism Which the Messiah Heralds
By Cliff Shack
The rectification of the 288 sparks. This is the purpose of Judaism. The purpose of Judaism’s 613 commandments. If you don’t understand the concept of the “288 sparks” and the “breaking of the vessels” then you don’t understand Judaism. To understand Judaism, truly, you must understand the deep stuff. There are no two ways about it. People study the Kabbalah in hopes of understanding the deep stuff.
To make a long story short. After the 288 fallen “sparks” are rectified or “elevated”, according to Jewish tradition, the Messiah will come.
The question arises. Have the 288 sparks been rectified? Has the messiah come?
In the 16th century the great kabbalist, the Arizal, Isaac Luria, claimed that the rectification of the sparks was so near completion that he was almost ready to pronounce himself the messiah. The messiah is so close that he is just “polishing his buttons”. This phrase has comforted Jews for hundreds of years up until today.
How long does it take to polish buttons? I suggest that the buttons have already been polished. The 288 sparks have also been rectified to the level of “Divine” satisfaction. This means that of the fifty or so people who have claimed to have been the messiah over the past two thousand years, at least one of those people…..was. Perhaps more than one.*
It stands to reason that the commandments over time were indeed effective. It would be more difficult to believe that millions of Torah-observant Jews over thousands of years could not rectify the 288 sparks. If that is the case then the effectiveness of the mitzvahs themselves should be called into question. It is the ineffectiveness of the Jewish people that is given as the cause of the problem of elevating the sparks.
But perhaps, as was mentioned before there really is no problem. Indeed the sparks had been satisfactorily elevated.
There is a Catch-22 here. In order for the Jewish people to raise the 288 sparks as they had fallen across time…they needed to endure as a people to pursue the sparks. This very endurance, this status-quo would be threatened once the sparks had been elevated and the time would come for a complete change in lifestyle that would happen with the rectification. It is only natural for the Jews to shoot the messenger who would come to announce that their services would be no longer needed.
This is why every “messiah” would be repudiated and/or killed.
Killing or rejecting the messenger, however, would not eliminate the fact that the rectification of the 288 sparks had indeed occurred. (If it did.)
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, is thought by some to have been the messiah. Although he was a great man I cannot agree. The Rebbe was naïve when it came to understanding just who was really behind major world events during his lifetime. He believed that
The events of the Gulf War, the release of Jews from the Soviet Union, and the fall of Communism were miracles belonging to the time of redemption. These events were not miraculous but engineered by the the Global Elite. An Elite with hidden links Shabbatai Tzvi and Jacob Frank. The Rebbe often handed out dollar bills that were to be given to charity. Those very dollars were also the product of an agency rooted in affiliation to the rejected messiahs Tzvi and Frank.
Have the High Priests of the Temple of Jerusalem been replaced by bankers of haute finance? Has the Torah of the world of B'riah been replaced by the Torah of the world of Atzilut?
The High Priest of Ancient Israel would only enter the Holy of Holies on Yom Kippur. It is known that Guy de Rothschild, of the Illuminated Masonic banking family, officially began working for his family’s bank on Yom Kippur. This was not coincidental.
The High Priest of Ancient Israel wore a head band of pure gold. The vessels of the temple were made of gold. The walls of the Tabernacle were veneered with gold. The price of gold today is set at a Rothschild bank. This too is no mere coincidence.
The windows of the Temple in Jerusalem were fashioned in such a way that they fanned out from narrow to wide indicating that a light was radiating, emanating to the world- illuminating the world with a special supernal light. The power of Sabbatian/Frankist-Illuminati-based high finance out of The City appears to have replaced that illumination.
*[According to Jewish tradition it is said..."And a redeemer shall come to Zion and to those in Jacob who repent of transgression, says the Lord.(Isaiah 59:20-21)".]No where is it said that only one person can be the messiah. According to Jewish tradition there is a person of messianic qualities in every generation. His revelation is dependent on the merits of each generation. According to Frankists there are 18 messiahs. Some have recorded fifty. As I see it the world can use as many messiahs as are willing to undergo the abuse that awaits them.

How the Media Legitimized an Anti-Israel
Hoax and Changed the Course of a War, i.e.,
Media as Agent Provocateur - Pyromaniac.
Symptoms and diagnosis
Pyromaniacs are known to have feelings of sadness and loneliness, followed by rage, which leads to
the setting of fires as an outlet.For a positive diagnosis, there must be purposeful setting of fire on at
least two occasions. There is tension or arousal prior to the act, and gratification or relief when it is over.
It is done for its own sake, and not for any other motivation. It is all about the pleasure of seeing what
other people have to do to extinguish the fire, and the pyromaniac may enjoy reading of the effects
of what they have done. (Sound like today's mass media types??)

Simpson explains how the psychological warfare dept of the American military was not disbanded

who knows nothing, is far better informed than the person who has been infected with falsehood.

Unless you are an anti-semite yourself, I would strongly urge you to disassociate yourself from Henry Makow.
Mr. Makow is a Jew-hater (as evident in this article by him).
It's a shame that Barry Chamish has agreed to appear with you in September.
In a desparate attempt to find politically like-minded speakers to appear with, Barry has once again been duped.
Barry also informed me on the phone that you are a Jew for Jesus.
That was the tip-off for me.
The message is ready to be sent with the following file or link attachments:
I like Henry Makow. He is a thoughtful man. I like people who are informed, intellectually honest with themselves, and actually think for themselves. He reads ingredients before he swallows something. Whether the food is for thought or stomach.
As for Barry...I have corresponded with him on and off for about six years. I opened my home to him. I don't plan on speaking. I let my website and blog do the talking.
Am I a Jew for Jesus? No but as an observant Jew I can't justify villifying Jesus. I have major problems with some of the followers of the religion that based upon him. I once asked an elder rabbi who had smeicha from Lubavitch what was so horrible about Jesus the Rabbi. He shrugged and couldn't give me an answer. Can you? I don't hate people, especially ghosts for no reason.What did he do that was so terrible? Messianic people have historically been very unpopular people in their day.
Curing the blind on Shabbos doesn't strike me as an aveira (sin).
You must know something that I don't know. Enlighten me. Why was he so horrible?

(& The Reichstag Mechanism)
It has been the practice of the State to engineer pretexts for social, political
and military action. The "Reichstag Mechanism," which is predicted upon the
Nazi conspiracy to Torch the Reichstag in 1933 as a method to fabricate a
pretext to quash their political opposition, suspend human rights, impose a
police state and declare martial law, is classic. A single Dutch Communist
was arrested, tried in camera and shortly thereafter executed. The SA men
from the leadership of the Brown Shirted Storm Troopers who WERE involved
in the burning OF the Riechstag were summererly eliminated on the evening
of June 30, July 1st 1934 in what is documented as The Blood Purge or The
Night of The Long Knives. Witness "control" is always a part of the elitist
strategy to cover their tracks. In the Kennedy assassination both Oswald and
Jack Ruby were eliminated. In the Rabin assassination, one Yigal Amir, the
patsy now serving time in an Israeli prison is lucky to still be alive. Check out
more details at www.barrychamish.com Those who were killed in 9-11 are
today being mocked through the exploitation of their deaths, by those who
caused them - to terrorize and bring about the total enslavement of their fellow
Americans, all in the name of fighting terrorism and so-called security.
The Nazification of America has been in active process for decades. Only
now, are we beginning to view the hand which the glove no longer conceals.
The Hilder film is just one of many now exposing the greatest lie of the 21st
century, and it's only just begun. Time for truth. Watch it now ...
SECRETS WITH BARRY CHAMISH
Barry Chamish is Israel's most controversial writer. Ten years ago he
claimed in his bestselling book, Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin, that
the prime minister was murdered in a coup from within his own party. In
the past 3 years every major newspaper poll has proved the majority
of Israelis support Chamish. The Israeli answer was to smear Chamish
with ugly web sites, rumors and violent accidents.
Tired of the harassment, Barry Chamish is in the U.S. for at least 4
months and offering his lectures to your congregations for free.
Mr. Chamish will offer your congregation a lecture for the cost of
their generosity. Whatever they raise will be his fee. The only cost to
congregation will be travel and accommodation of any kind.
Further, if as was the case in Denver in mid-June, when there were 3
congregations wanting to hear him and someone to drive him to the
Chamish will risk it all and cover the travel expenses.
In any case, Mr. Chamish is located in central America and travel
will not be a huge issue.
A STUNNING EVENING
Mr. Chamish offers a choice of three speeches.
WHO MURDERED YITZHAK RABIN - When Rabin got cold feet
about Oslo, he was eliminated by his own political faction. This
contains 5 video clips and 18 once secret documents. Besides churches
and synagogues, major universities worldwide, Rupert Murdoch U, Hong
Yeshiva U, etc. have ordered the event.
THE SECRET WAR AGAINST THE SETTLERS - First presented at
Messengers Of Messiah in California before the Gaza pullout, the
the undeclared war to remove the settlers from their homes, including
the violent removal of two dozen of their rabbis. The settlers have
become complacent in
the wake of the war and will surrender with barely a fight.
THE VATICAN'S NEW CRUSADE AGAINST JERUSALEM - Just given to three
Denver congregations to great enthusiasm, Bet Messiah, Hagigah and
Fellowship, Chamish exposes the Vatican's campaign to re-establish the
Holy Roman Empire of Charlemagne. Here is the reason Europe wants
out of Jerusalem.
PRAISE FOR CHAMISH
Chamish has appeared on the fine radio shows of protest including
Alex Jones, Joyce Riley, Don Weidemann, Jeff Rense, Dr. Stan Monteith
etc. Alex Jones has
called him a great Israeli patriot. Rense and Monteith have noted his
research has held the test of nearly 15 years. Oslo is as he first
described it, was right on the money . After 4 lectures
at Bet Messiah, Don Weidemann notes the same enthusiasm for the last
lecture as the first.
LET YOUR CHURCH...
Know why Israel's government has chosen to divide the country and
leave it ultimately, defenseless against rockets, terror and war. Mr.
Chamish knows who is guiding
Israel to disaster and the answers will satisfy your congregation.
For four months he will be in America seeing if his answer has an
audience. Invite him to speak today. Write email@example.com

A Permanent Goodbye to the United States
by - Michael C. Ruppert
Now that I am in the world and not a “country”, my prayer is that my future adventures
for as long as I live will connect me with other world-changers so that we can support and
empower each other and all peoples. I am already finding out that there are more people
who clearly see these challenges than I ever suspected. [Michael C. Ruppert]
Today, the American people no longer support the Constitutional Republic given birth by their
forefathers, but a rather unwittingly, a Corporate Collective Cartel which has become their slave
master and nemesis.
Those that can murder a pope and get away with it. John Paul I was murdered by Masonic forces within and without the Vatican. See the book "In God's Name" by David A. Yallop. The Sabbatean/Frankist Illuminati controls Freemasonry. Evelyn and David Rothschild man the helm of the SFI.

REFUSE by Barry Chamish
You know, my work invites nuts to try and sabotage it. I've been
lucky. Only a couple of extreme mental cases actually continue with

Contradictory stuff but all untrue. So when these things start, I
Pipes. And the guy hasn't figured it out yet.
You see Pipes has been given an assignment by the CFR: make
Americans hate Arabs. With the help of his CFR father, former head of
the Soviet desk for the CIA, Richard, this non-talent has been handed
audience free of charge. But his crimes are catching up with him. And
the next time he shows up in Israel, he may actually be in danger of a
lynch party. Because now we know I was right from the beginning of the
war. The neo-cons of the CFR and Israel started it.
We know that because Seymour Hersch wrote it in the New Yorker.
Yes, I know he screwed Pollard and made close to a million mistakes on
Iran Contra. Still, the word is out on the Oslo War. Israel started it,
as I wrote, to air-bomb Hizbullah in a mock attack on Iran. All this
with the permission of the CFR neocon's human hunter, Big Dick Cheney.
And Pipes led the phoney war on the Arabs to get American backing
for the fiasco.
And Israel's beautiful young men died for Pipes and the country
in time exact their revenge on him and his paid nutcase buddy at Haifa

Last night I spoke with two genuine activists from Toronto. They
were heartbroken that Israel lost the war and that Nefesh B'nefesh were
heartlessly sending immigrants to a deathtrap. They sought a way to
the Jews of the danger Israel had become and one suggested a newspaper
printing people like, "Naomi and Carolyn." I warned them, "The Jewish
right is doing immense damage by misidentifying the threat. They are
playing into the enemy's hand by criticizing the WRONG establishment.
Stay away from them and nonsense like AFSI who can't get a hundred
people to rally for Israel. There are good Jews out there. My pal Joel
B. is writing again. Daisy Stern has got the Vatican cold. Clifford
Shack and David Samuels are working on the Frankist responsibility. We
don't need the establishment critics."

the only way. You support it by REFUSING to serve in the IDF. Join the

Is the Filosof family connected to the political leadership of the Sabbatean State of Israel?
Perhaps it is just coincidence but the daughter of the late Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin married a Filosof. See Dalia Rabin-Pelossof (Filosof)
Do Sabbateans rule the U.S.?
Can they assassinate a President and get away with it?
According to Leah Rabin's autobiography, her husband Yitzchak was in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
Was there Sabbatean influences behind the JFK assassination?
In June of 1963, David Ben-Gurion resigned as Prime Minister of Israel, citing “personal reasons.” Some researchers believe, however, that he retired to focus on the upcoming November assassination of JFK. Supervising the Mossad hit team as it practiced in the Negev near his kibbutz. Why? Kennedy wanted to dismantle Israel's nuclear capability leaving her defenseless amidst her Arab enemies. This is just reason of many.
Some JFK researchers point fingers to James Jesus Angleton as the man who was most likely the mastermind & coordinator behind the assassination. He was a crypto-Jew. His mother was a Mexican Jewish woman. Angleton also manned the CIA's Israel desk for many years.
Michael C. Piper wrote a book "Final Judgement" on Israel's role in the JFK assassination. Worth a looksie in my opinion.
A key figure on the Warren Commission was John J. McCloy. McCloy worked for the Warburg family as a corporate lawyer. The Warburgs, together with the Rothschilds created the Sabbatean State of Israel to fulfil the messiah's task of re-establishing the glory of Israel.
McCloy also prevented the bombing of the railroad tracks leading to Auschwitz during the climax of the Holocaust. He couldn't have infidel Jewish refugees immigrating to his clients soon-to-be established military jewel.
Real history has yet to be discovered. It boggles the mind.

I liken the extended Rothschild family to the amazing Aspen tree phenomena that is the largest organism on Earth.
The trees appear independent however they are invisibly connected.
I truly, after 20 plus years of research, suspect that the descendants of Shabbatai Tzvi (The Rothschilds and their inter-locking families across the globe) rule our planet quietly. Is it a Jewish conspiracy? I believe it is a Sabbatean conspiracy.
It' s sounds weird but the more you look the more it makes sense.
I had discovered that FDR, Churchill & Hitler were all connected to the Rothschilds in various ways. It is an amazing field of study. Start with my website.

OK. Here goes nothing.
Have you ever heard of Shabbatai Tzvi? Of the fifty or so people who claimed to be the messiah in the last two thousand years he happened to be the only one who was
1. Proclaimed the messiah by a prophet who lived in the land of Israel
2. Was endorsed by the Jewish people.
What happened was when he went to the Turkish Sultan, the leader of the world at the time, to take his crown....the Sultan gave him a choice. Convert to Islam or die. Shabbatai Tzvi, the accepted messiah of the Jews converted.
Understandably, the Jewish people were shocked and withdrew their endorsement.
They labeled Shabbatai Tzvi a "false messiah".
Strangely the loyalty of the prophet, Nathan Ashkenazi of Gaza, did not waiver.
Shabbatai Tzvi had gone crypto. Similar to Esther. Do you know of the story of Purim.
A Jewish woman by the name of Esther also concealed her Jewish affiliation. This concealment would eventually save the entire Jewish people around the known world. Her son would become King of the world.
The story of Shabbatai Tzvi ends in the history books with his conversion.
The story however does not end there. I believe that is where it really begins.
I believe that Shabbatai Tzvi's descendants actually rule the world today.
It sounds crazy. I know. But I really believe it to be true.
Shabbatai Tzvi converted in 1666. Since then his followers have infiltrated the highest
seats of power.
Their affiliation to the "False" messiah is undetectable to the world yet they are controlling the world. For a false messiah...Shabbatai Tzvi did not do so badly.
Understanding this story is one of the main focuses of my research.
Once you understand who controls the world....you can understand the other two questions I posed to you.
Who killed Kennedy.
Who was really responsible for the Holocaust.
The answer is...the people who control the world.
The world believes that FDR and Churchill were the good guys who fought Hitler, the bad guy. In reality...they were all on the same team.
I know this sounds unbelievable but I've been studying this stuff for twenty years and I have uncovered credible information to prove it out. That is all the stuff I have posted on my website that looks like a lot of mish-mash at first glance. But now that you have a basic understanding of what it's all about...each piece should begin to explain bits of the puzzle that has fooled the entire world.
The little that we can do for someone who sacrificed his life so heroically is to tell his story. It is not clear why the media has buried, this story: maybe the behavior of this officer is not "popular". Maybe it is not compatible with the image of the suffering soldier, anxious and apprehensive, that is so popular. Maybe -because the hero of the story is (imagine that) a "settler" ……
.........There is no plausible explanation for burying this incredible story of heroism- why is it not being shouted everywhere loud and clear, in amazement, with pride, with thanks and veneration, with tears?
So let US tell it- from mail to mail. Blog to blog.
Captain Ro'i Klein, of blessed memory, assistant Battalion Commander 51st Golani , from the settlement of Eli was the highest ranking commander among the fighters at Bint J’bail. At the time of the battle, he spotted a hand grenade that had been thrown in the direction of his soldiers. He threw himself on it so that his body would absorb most of the blast and his soldiers would be saved. His sacrifice succeeded. His soldiers who survived, related that he called out the "Shma Yisrael" as he threw himself on the grenade.
Ro'i Klein, a hero in an era that applauds anti-heroes, was buried on his 31st birthday.
Those who knew him tell that he was an outstanding Saxophone player, a brilliant intellectual and thinker who completed an Engineering degree with distinction, that he traveled in Africa, had a rolling laugh, that all those who knew him described him as calm and gentle, that the wish of his widow is that her children will grow to be like their father
A mythological hero
May his memory be blessed
Light a candle, pass his story on.
Note: There is no true democractic process in America today. Events
are orchestrated and controlled from beyond the electoral process from
the domain of administrative fiction. The American government has
been co-opted by non-elected plutocrats who have constituted a
Collectivists Corporate Cartel or oligarchy of like interests.
I.G. Farben - http://www.reformed-theology.org/html/books/wall_street/chapter_02.htm
& http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IG_Farben Was the Nazi German Corporate Collective Cartel, which was directly involved in the technocratic extermination of Jews
at the Poland based "inventory" control centers i.e., Auschwitz etc.
Americans should.... no, MUST know who is guiding the American Ship of State. Are
they loyal American patriots, or pirates? If pirates, then the American people must fight
to regain their rightful possession, the Constitutional Republic of America. And
remember, an essential tactic of the oligarchic elite, is to fabricate pretext
for social, political and military action. Even evil must pretent to be
righteous in the eyes of the people.

Reuters, following the outing of its fake photographs of
Beirut, with great embarrassment, fired the photographer,
who had faked hundred of photos. The N.Y. Times, who
featured an entire photo essay using fake photos has yet to
do so. For a graphic analysis of the photos, which
clearly show a "humanitarian helper" who plays a dual role
as a dead man (he takes off his hat when playing dead.Duh.
Only a New York Times editor could have missed it.)
Newspaper of record?
They are so busted.

A top United Nations official has come up with another great UN idea. He devised a strategy to quiet the "demons" across the "wider Islamic world." He said that in order to end the Islamic violence that is taking place in the Middle East, the United States and the international community must respect Hezbollah as a political party, not a terrorist organization.
"Everybody would want a solution here which takes away the recruiting power of Hezbollah in the broader Arab world," said Mark Malloch Brown, the U.N.'s deputy secretary-general. That would be one, he said, that "allows Hezbollah a political future as opposed to a militia future inside an independent Lebanon."
Brown went so far as to say that if the Hezbollah and its adherents are given political acknowledgment then the need for military attacks on Israel would decline.
I haven’t heard anything so ludicrous since the last time someone from the UN opened their mouth. Making Hezbollah a political party would take away their recruiting power? The UN is living in a dream world. The terrorist, military wing of Hezbollah is not disappearing. Most people realize that Hezbollah is not fighting for honor nor are they fighting a border dispute, they are fighting to destroy Israel.Following a Hezbollah attack, its leader, Hassan Nasrallah said “If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.” (Daily Star, Oct. 23, 2002). Additionally, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has renewed calls on Muslims to rally to the defense of the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah in its war against Israel. One would have to be blind not to realize that these are the words of hateful, homicidal fanatics - not the words of men with a legitimate cause seeking a political forum.
Aside from this, has anyone seen Hamas lately? They too became a political party - a wildly popular one if one can go by the vote - have they changed their ideology? They have not changed their charter saying Israel should be destroyed, they have not changed their method to get their way - as can be seen by the Kassam rockets thrown at Sderot from the Gaza daily.
Do the brilliant thinkers at the UN think that making Hezbollah a political party will change their ideology? Do they think they will stop using civilians as shields for their operations? Southern Lebanese Christians are being used by Hezbollah terrorists as military shields for launching missile attacks. Yesterday former South Lebanese Army commander, Col. Charbel Barakat, said that Hezbollah is repeating the same pattern that it practiced against Israel in 1996, hiding among civilian populations and launching attacks behind human shields.
The Lebanese Christians are complaining bitterly that their families, their homes and their schools are being turned into a battle ground against their will. Christian Solidarity International (CSI), quotes a Christian, who remained nameless because he fears retribution by Hezbollah, from the village of Ain Ebel. This man discovered Hezbollah guerillas setting up a launcher to fire Katyusha rockets from the rooftop of his home. When he realized they were ignoring his pleas to stop firing the missiles, he immediately gathered his family and fled the home, which indeed was bombed and destroyed fifteen minutes later by an Israeli air strike.
In addition to having their homes hijacked for Hezbollah’s attacks, there have been attempts to block Christians from fleeing their villages. On Saturday, July 28, Hezbollah fighters wounded several Christians fleeing Rmeish with their families, according to Christian sources in south Lebanon. Will a political agenda stop this callous and cruel behavior? I doubt it.
Using Mr. Brown’s theory, perhaps the UN would like to try and stop bin Laden’s al-Qeada by offering him a country to rule. In fact, maybe the best idea is to combine those two! Let’s give Uganda - the same country offered to Israel in the 1940's - to Hezbollah and put Osama bin Laden up as president of its democracy - a democracy he will certainly set up as political power will change his ideology. If we give the Hezbollah terrorists a political party within this democracy they will doubtless turn over a new leaf and end fighting.
The ridiculousness of Mark Malloch Brown’s comment is almost surreal because it’s not based on fact. Sadly it echoes the view of most of the people who work in the UN. Sadder still is that the cause of all this violence was Hezbollah aggression. They entered Israel, a foreign country, and kidnaped and killed it soldiers. I don’t recall hearing anything from the UN about freeing those innocent victims, only ideas of what we can do for the terrorist group Hezbollah. But then again I can’t think of any bright idea that the UN has come up with in decades so this shouldn’t really shock anyone.
The "scientific" management of human "inventory" comes in small pills... & doses.
Welcome to the "Brave New (Old) World."
No doubt, Islam has been and IS a death cult, and has proven in past history willing to sacrifice
the lives of millions, as in the Iran/Iraq war, and further, to employ "Hashashins" who find heaven
in death and in the murder of "infidels." Mr. Lewis is no light weight when it comes to an informed
understanding of Islam. As an author of many books on the subject Lewis' words bare heed...
"...In this context, mutual assured destruction, the deterrent
that worked so well during the Cold War, would have no meaning,"
Lewis wrote. "At the end of time, there will be general destruction
anyway. What will matter will be the final destination of the
dead – hell for the infidels, and heaven for the believers..."
Ultimately, all things considered, there may not be a peaceful resolution between
the west AND Islam... no matter which "side" you fall on, or as much as we may wish
it could be otherwise. In today's world, what seems prudent is, we can expect the
worst, while hoping and working for the best.

"The Corporate Fiction, strawman or artificial person, has no life of
it's own, serves only itself and has no capacity for moral nor ethical action
of independent volition."
There is also an obscure book written by Carey Williams, "A MASK FOR
PRIVILEGE; Anti-semitism In America," which exposes anti-semitism for
what it really is... A MASK FOR PRIVILEGE, and usurped elitist power - "the
determination of the forces of special privilege, with their hangers-on,
to maintain their select and exclusive status regardless of the
consequences to other human beings."
In truth, any Nazi movement in America would destroy the very thing
they would pretentiously declare to uphold... What's left of The American
Constitutional Republic. The American Founding Fathers rejected both
Nazi AND Communist forms of State Collectivism. So must we.

My heart breaks as Israel loses the war. But her crooked leaders are
doing wonders for the New World Order. Now the Vatican gets in its dibs
and a new trade bloc is in formation. While the rockets fly, the US
and Kuwait sign a free trade agreement. So Dubai, Bahrain and Jordan.
And did anyone notice that America no longer patrols Afghanistan? NATO
has taken the reins.Not ten years ago, PM Shimon Peres was tired of the
Grapes Of Wrathmini-war and put an end to it with an attack on Kana
which killed 100 and brought international troops to Lebanon. The week
leaders of the NWO met in Rome under the kind but stern guidance of
Condeleeza Rice. They decided to put in Lebanon International
Troops...someday. A second Kana bombing, no matter who was responsible,
gave Shimon Peres another chance to bring back his buddies, the French.
was decided that French troops would form the majority of the
And are they balanced:
/At the news conference held in Beirut, French Foreign Minister
Phillippe Douste-Blazy praised Iran as a “stabilizing force in the
Middle East.” Douste-Blazy told reporters that Iran "is an outstanding
country with great people and an honorable civilization. It has a
crucial role in the region.”
This whole awful war was designed to get those Vatican soldiers into
Israel and given another few weeks of rocket attacks, barring a nuke on
Teheran, Israelis will lift their arms and beg for any troops,
just to get a night's peace. Even in Jerusalem.
A few nights ago, I was almost back in Israel. A brilliant researcher,
who, yes indeed, demands recognition, Kati Cohen, called me and let me
have a 90 blast of her research. She began easy; "You were right about
Daniel Abraham and this dreadful man Joel running Yeshiva U. They
brought in half the Vatican to YU to supposedly discuss anti-semitism
with their rabbis. That wasn't the discussion. They wanted "their" land
and that meant Jerusalem."
It was 102 degrees in America, the fields were dessicated by the minute
and I was back in corrupt Israel. I was home. Abraham almost cost Ehud
his "honesty," he writes with a broad smirk, by passing him a couple of
spare million dollars, by buying his home for 2.5 times its value in
midst of the election campaign. And that, lesser crime, tied Shimon
with Ehud Olmert more than politically. Abraham is a valued member
of the milestone to money laundering, the Shimon Peres Peace Center.
And Shimon Peres, the Vatican's chief spy along with Yossi Beilin, is
number two in Israel, an apt number if there was one. And all those
crooks and murderers who caused the war, Shimon Peres, Barak, Beilin,
strung from the highest oak tree in the land? Of course not! They go to
cabinet meetings and decide how to kill the most Israelis in one day.
Kati goes on, and I'm now taking notes. It's just like being in Modiin.
"Shimon Peres promised the pope East Jerusalem in May of 1992 and the
wants to cash in now. But Ariel Sharon wasn't playing ball. In July of
year he actually banned diplomacy with the Vatican. So the Vatican
working around him. In September they invited both Israeli chief rabbis
to Rome to threaten the Jews if the holy sites of Jerusalem weren't
handed over to them. In November, they hatched the Mount Zion plot,
trading a Spanish church for the Last Supper room. President Katsav
to the Vatican but Ariel Sharon still said no.
"Finally they knew Ariel Sharon had to go. Enter the apostolic nuncio
Sambi. He plotted with Shimon Peres to finish Ariel Sharon and possibly
poison Ariel Sharon drank in his final meeting with Shimon Peres on
Dec. 18. On thing
is certain, 18 hours before, after 8 1/2 years in Jerusalem, Sambi flew
out for a new assignment in Washington. "Once Ehud Olmert and
Shimon Peres won the election, Shimon Peres flew to the Vatican
taking with him a letter from Ehud Olmert to the pope. No one will say
was in the letter, but you can be sure he promised the pope 'his land'
and the war drastic enough to give it to him."

For twelve years I've been shouting and screaming that Israel's
"leadership" utterly controlled by the Council On Foreign Relations,
known broadly as "the neo-cons", would contrive a war which they would
lose. For that my reputation has been slammed with rumors about my
sanity, sobriety and common sense. When that didn't do the trick, a
common car "accident" was supposed to take care of me. Every effort was
made to shut me up. And you know what, I think that finally "they" did
it. Who needs the crap while my nation dissolves before our eyes?
Here is the Debka Report from July 11. To those who asked, here is how
the New World Order proxy, Israel, started its war with the cooperation
of the NWO enemy Iran. It sure beats Americans and Iranians dying. So
for this, innocents in Israel and Lebanon are doing the suffering and
Maj.-Gen (Ret) Giora Eiland traced the breakdown which allowed a
Hamas-led squad overrun an Israeli army post on the Israeli side of the
southern Gaza border, kill two soldiers and snatch Corporal Gilad
Shalit on June 25, to an “operational” breakdown. He did not lay it at
the door of commanders and their conduct.
“None of them lied or failed to perform their duties,” said Gen.
former national security adviser, in the report on the inquiry the
of staff entrusted him to carry into the causes of the incident at the
Kerem Shalom post.
Most damningly, Eilat affirmed that the corporal’s abduction could have
been aborted. The kidnappers and their hostage were clearly visible on
the unit’s electronic screens as they crossed the border into the Gaza
Strip, but the tank commander delayed by first asking his superior for
permission to open fire and abort their flight.
The only action Chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz took on receipt of
the report Monday, July 10, was to announce he had raised the matter in
conversation with a number of commanders. Halutz made no mention of how
he would handle Eiland’s comprehensive denigration of an “operational
breakdown - from battalion and brigade level all the way up to the top
of the division and general staff. “
Neither was this finding itemized. Eiland himself did not recommend
dismissals. His restraint was no doubt motivated by the general
disinclination to give the enemy free points at a time when the IDF is
engaged in combat in the Gaza Strip, especially when the commanders
targeted for criticism are at the front line.
According to *DEBKA/file/*’s military sources, the two generals are
counting on the Gaza operation, which the IDF launched on June 28,
days after the Hamas assault on the army post, stealing the limelight
from the faults found along the entire chain of command. Our sources
that Eiland directs most of his disapproval at three to five officers
from the ranks of colonel, brigadier general, major general and
At the same time, General Eiland omitted to asked the three searching
questions that might have laid bare the root-causes of the fiasco at
1. Was this a one-time slip-up or a part of a long-running string of
2. Was it the natural, preordained consequence of the operational
directives coming down from the prime minister, the defense minister
On June 23, two days before the attack and kidnap, *DEBKA/file/*
the five taboos prime minister Ehud Olmert and defense minister Amir
Peretz laid down for military operations to counter the Qassam missile
blitz against southern Israel.
One banned Israeli forays into the areas of the missile sites in Gaza
and ambushes on Palestinian side of the border fence.
Eiland refrained from asking whether those strict prohibitions may not
have handicapped the command levels of the army to the point of
rendering them incapable of performing their duties. They officers had
due warning of an impending Palestinian cross-border attack through an
undiscovered tunnel. What more logical than to put IDF ambushes squads
behind enemy lines to trap the assailants when they return to their
in Gaza? Knowing they might be there, the Hamas-led kidnap team would
have realized its escape route with Gilad Shalit was blocked and might
been deterred from the abduction.
3. The Eiland probe should have examined the strategic concepts guiding
Israel’s top commanders before and after the fall of the Kerem Shalom
Given the far-reaching consequences, the Israeli public is entitled to
lot more enlightenment.
The tailored facts released show a prime minister and defense minister
still in a state of denial over the root-causes of the present security
crisis. Israel’s unconsidered disengagement from the Gaza Strip and its
military withdrawal from the Philadelpi border route in September 2005
constitute Israel’s most damaging military and political blunder in a
decade. Until this is confronted and objectively analyzed, the top IDF
brass will be constrained from looking squarely at the escalating
threat posed by Hamas-in-government and addressing it with all the
considerable professionalism at their command.
Such cool analysis is the target of Ehud Olmert’s primary taboo. With
premiership, he inherited from Ariel Sharon the deadly fallout from
bungle, along with the leadership of the Kadima party, whose only
d’etre after rubber-stamping Sharon’s disengagement from Gaza is to
continue the process on the West Bank.
The scales have fallen from many Israeli eyes in the wake of the Gilad
Shalit disaster. People have begun asking hard questions, such as how
did Hamas come to take over Palestinian government in the first place.
And why is Hamas being permitted to terrorize southern Israeli with
Qassam missiles after the Gaza Strip was handed over lock, stock and
barrel to full Palestinian control. And the missile menace is beginning
to percolate into the West Bank too.
Even some of Kadima’s leading figures appear perplexed.
In his report to the chief of staff, Giora Eiland implied that the IDF
may be in urgent need to revise some of its outdated concepts and apply
a fresh approach to the new realities - even at the cost of standing up
to civilian government. Unless this is broached, Israel’s armed forces
are in for more command failures and further misfortunes.
