Op-ed calls on Israel to nuke Germany, Iran

’20-30 nuclear bombs will assure the job gets done,’ opinion piece on
right-wing Israel National News site says


March 11, 2015, 3:32 am

Right-wing media outlet Israel National News published an opinion piece
Tuesday calling on Israel to launch nuclear bombs at Iran and Germany,
only days after the outlet came under fire for publishing a piece
accusing a war widow of killing her husband over her pro-peace views.

In the opinion article published Tuesday, the author claims that only
through nuclear annihilation of Iran and Germany, with 20 or 30 nuclear
bombs each, can Israelis prevent the state’s destruction.

“If Israel does not walk in the ways of God’s Bible,” author Chen
Ben-Eliyahu wrote in Hebrew, “it will receive a heavy punishment of near
complete destruction and doom and only a few will be saved.”

One of Israel’s missions is to remember the crimes of Amalek, a tribe
representative of pure evil in the Bible, whom Jews are commanded to
obliterate. Among those descended from the band, the author writes, are
Iranian leaders Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, former president Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad and current President Hassan Rouhani.

“They don’t miss an opportunity to discuss the need for the annihilation
of Israel,” he wrote.

To combat this Israel must respond in kind, Ben-Eliyahu declared. “To an
existential threat we must respond with an existential threat,” he
wrote, “not with speeches in Congress. We must make it clear to the
Iranians that Israel will wipe out their nuclear program and Tehran and
Isfahan as well.”

“If [an enemy] rises up to destroy you, rise earlier to destroy him:
twenty, thirty nuclear bombs will do to assure the job gets done,” he

He also called on Israel to remember its near destruction at the hands
of the Nazis and exact revenge on Germany, now a staunch ally of Israel.

When the Messiah comes, Ben-Eliyahu wrote, Israel will reverse the Final
Solution. “Twenty, thirty atomic bombs on Berlin, Munich, Hamburg,
Nuremberg, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Dresden, Dortmund and so on to
assure the job gets done. And the land will be quiet for a thousand
years,” he wrote.

Israel National News refused to comment on the website’s decision to run
the op-ed.

On Sunday, the outlet came under fire for publishing an opinion piece by
Hagai Huberman in which he lashed out at Michal Kastan Kedar, whose
husband was killed during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza last summer,
and who addressed the crowd at a left-wing rally in Tel Aviv on Saturday

“You lost your husband, lost your hope for a different, better life,
only because 10 years ago there were people who listened to opinions
such as yours, listened to aging generals such as [ex-Mossad chief] Meir
Dagan, who stood by you on that stage,” he wrote in the piece headlined
“Kills her husband and cries that she’s a widow.”

On Monday, Huberman said he would consider apologizing to Kedar.

Israel Spied on Iran Nuclear Talks With U.S.

Ally's snooping upset White House because information was used to lobby
Congress to try to sink a deal

By Adam Entous

March 23, 2015 10:30 p.m. ET

Soon after the U.S. and other major powers entered negotiations last
year to curtail Iran's nuclear program, senior White House officials
learned Israel was spying on the closed-door talks.

The spying operation was part of a broader campaign by Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government to penetrate the negotiations
and then help build a case against the emerging terms of the deal,
current and former U.S. officials said....

Nuclear Negotiations? From: "'James Petras'

Who Spies for Israel in Washington’s Nuclear Negotiations?

James Petras



The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) (3/25/15) headlined: ‘Israel Spied on Iran
Nuclear Talks with the US”.  The article goes on to detail the way in
which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used the confidential
information to sabotage the talks, including ‘playing them back to US
legislators to undermine US diplomacy’.

The WSJ report of this incident tries to play down the serious
implications of Israel’s espionage by claiming that Israeli spying of US
diplomatic negotiations is ‘normal even among allies’; that ‘both sides
do it’; that the US ‘tolerates’ Israeli spying; that the ‘Israelis have
not directly spied on the US’ but use sympathetic US agents . . . and
several other excuses for Israel’s behavior.

After having revealed Tel Aviv’s espionage - the WSJ dismisses the
sabotage. Worse still, it makes no attempt to investigate who, among the
highly-placed US government officials with direct access to the
negotiations, has been spying for Israel.  This essay attempts to
address this question by identifying the most likely suspects.

We will proceed by describing the seriousness of the crime by noting the
centrality of the US-Iran negotiations for US global politics and the
enormous damage, which has resulted from Israel’s securing secret
documents, reports and proceedings of the talks and having a highly
placed agent among the US diplomats.

The Significance of the, US-Iran Negotiations

The negotiations between the major powers (P5+1), composed of the five
UN Security Council members plus Germany, led by the US, with Iran have
proceeded for over two years. Israel is not part of the negotiating
process-formally but indirectly its presence is substantial. For
Washington the stakes are very high:  securing a nuclear agreement with
Iran in which Teheran submits to constant and pervasive ‘inspections’,
and dismantles a substantial part of its nuclear program, certainly
weakens Iran’s regional prestige and increases US influence in the
region.  Secondly, through the initial agreement, it is likely that
Washington will move forward to deepen joint political activity with
Iran in neighboring countries.  Thirdly, Washington will use the
agreement to isolate Syria, Lebanon (Hezbollah) and Yemen, from Iranian
financial, military and diplomatic support.  Fourthly, US multi-national
oil corporations could gain access to the Iranian oil fields and
exporters could access a huge consumer market of 70 million Iranian
citizens.  Fifthly, the agreement would lessen the danger that Israel
would initiate a major war, which the Zionist power configuration in the
US could quickly convert into a disastrous US regional war.  Given the
fact that the US-Afghan war has lasted 14 years, and counting, and cost
over $1 trillion dollars, and that the Iraq invasion has far exceeded
those costs and intensified over the past year, a US nuclear agreement
with Iran would avoid a catastrophic, prolonged war designed to enhance
Israeli dominance in the Middle East.

Israel’s Interest in Sabotaging theP 5 + 1 Nuclear Negotiations

Israel knows that Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program (as does
Washington).  The US government uses this as a pretext to secure
political concessions from Iran, to degrade its regional influence, and
to secure their support in policing the Middle East.  In contrast,
Israel seeks to destroy Iran’s capacity to support the Palestinian
anti-colonial struggle.

Netanyahu and his Zionist supporters, in and out of the US government,
seek to induce the US to increase economic sanctions in order to
strangle the Iranian economy, to foment internal unrest and to set
US-Iranian relations on a path toward a military confrontation.

Netanyahu launched a multi-prong attack on the negotiations.  During the
AIPAC meeting in March 2015 he ‘dictated the line’ to 10,000 fanatical
Zionist followers.  He made Iran and US negotiations the central focus
of activity for the 52 Presidents of the Major American Jewish
Organizations, their billionaire donors and Washington operatives.
Netanyahu told them that they must concentrate on degrading Iran, on
turning Congress into a bastion for undermining any agreement reached
via diplomatic negotiations.

Central to Netanyahu’s strategy is securing first hand, up to date,
information (intelligence) on the negotiations, identifying the
concessions which Iran is willing to make, the demands which they
consider extreme and unlikely to accept, the points which might lead to
a break-up of the negotiations and the position of the P5 + 1
participants which are closest to Israel.  Netanyahu’s closest supporter
is the Zionized-regime of French President Hollande and in particular
Laurent Fabius, his Foreign Minister.

The sequence is as follows: American and Israeli spies, operating within
the US government, pass intelligence to Netanyahu who sends directives
to AIPAC which writes up resolutions for US Congress people which then
transmit it through the mass media to the US public and to the White
House which raises the issues, in part, to the negotiators the P 5 plus 1.

The question of timing is central, as the negotiations approach their
deadline and the possibility of an agreement is advancing.  The spies
and sources, both among the US officials and among the European
diplomats (mostly the French) involved in the negotiations, must
intensify their undercover work for Israel.

Israeli Espionage Network in Washington:  The Prime Suspects

The success or failure of Washington’s nuclear negotiations and the
sustainable of any agreement depends on overcoming Netanyahu’s
formidable army of supporters in the US Congress and his corporate
allies in the mass media.  The single most decisive aspect of the
negotiations is maintaining the secrecy of the proceedings, especially
with regard to the compromises that are inevitable in any historic
agreement – especially Iran’s compromises.  If Netanyahu has, real-time
intelligence, he can devise effective counter-moves to sabotage the
agreement before it is announced.

While a score of Zionist-influenced think tanks and hundreds of
full-time AIPAC functionaries have incredible ‘access’ to US officials,
especially those involved in Middle East policy-making, the timeliness
of information/ intelligence that Netanyahu needs can only be obtained
from officials who are directly or closely involved in the current
negotiations with Iran.

The likely criteria for identifying such agents among US diplomatic
officials include (1) a long-standing history of strong pro-Israel
activity and anti-Iranian animus; (2) extensive interactions and
involvement with Israeli intelligence and foreign ministry officials;
(3) deep involvement in devising and implementing sanctions policies
against Iran; and (4) immediate access to or, better still, direct
participation in the negotiating group.

Numerous officials fit one or two of the criteria. However if we
consider all four, we can identify a narrow circle of five officials,
who have the history, contacts and access to secret negotiations, which
make them prime candidates for spying for Israel.   They are:

Michael Froman, top US trade negotiator

Jack Lew, US Secretary of Treasury

Penny Pritzker, US Secretary of Commerce

David Cohen, Undersecretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial

Wendy Sherman, Undersecretary of Political Affairs and Chief US
negotiator in the nuclear talks with Iran.

While all five have been ardent supporters of Israel before and during
their time in the Obama administration, only two could have direct, real
time access to the negotiations.

David Cohen, has been extremely active pushing for sanctions against
Iran and has a lot to lose if sanctions are lifted or weakened.  Like
his predecessor, Stuart Levy, he has been closely associated with AIPAC,
which was instrumental in creating his post in Treasury and in orienting
its activities toward prosecuting banks and multi-nationals, which
directly or indirectly trade with Iran.  Cohen, although not directly
involved in the negotiations, could easily access their deliberations
since they affect his field of work.  He also has a very ‘fluid’
relation with Israeli officials engaged in intelligence, finance and
foreign affairs.  He has excellent relations with Netanyahu and supports
AIPAC’s agenda.    While he could serve as an Israeli informant and
certainly does exchange intelligence, he does not have the real time
details of the proceedings, because he is not a member of the
negotiating team.

Only Wendy Sherman fits all the criteria.  Sherman, as head of the US
negotiating group, has access to all the details of daily discussions,
proposals and concessions by the US and Iranian negotiators.  Moreover,
Sherman is in a position to translate Netanyahu’s demands on Iran into
key agenda items and proposals.  Sherman is a lifelong zealous Zionist
and according to one sympathetic writer, is ‘widely considered one of
Israel’s most supportive high level friends’.  Sherman’s reputation on
the negotiating team has been that of a ‘hard negotiator’.  Sherman was
one of the key authors of the ‘Joint Plan of Action, which was designed
to extract the maximum concessions from Iran while making the fewest
changes in US policy.

In a speech on October 23, 2014, designed to reassure Israel-Firsters in
Washington, Sherman boasted: ‘In return for limited sanctions relief,
Iran has halted the expansion of its overall enrichment capacity, put a
cap on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium hexafluoride, stopped the
production of uranium enriched to 20%, agreed not to make further
advances at the Arak heavy water reactor, opened the door to
unprecedented daily access for international inspectors to the
facilities at Natanz and Fordow’.  Sherman has secured US colonial
oversight over the entire Iranian uranium program – which the CIA and
the entire US intelligence consortium have repeatedly declared is not a
‘weapons program’!

Sherman shares Netanyahu’s visceral racist ideological contempt for the
Iranians.  She publicly told a US Senate Committee that, “we know
deception is part of their (Iranians) DNA”.  This was clearly a crude
remark designed to provoke the Iranian government and undermine the
negotiations before they began!

If the ideological affinities and hatred of Iran point to Wendy Sherman
as the Israel’s ‘mole’ in the State Department, her strategic position
as head of the negotiating committee immediately provides her with the
secret details that Israel needs to sabotage Obama’s approach to Iran
and to organize opposition in the US.  The WSJ’s article underscores
Sherman’s role as an agent of Tel Aviv:  ‘Mr. Netanyahu and his top
advisers received confidential update on the Geneva talks from
Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman and other US
officials who knew at the time that Israeli intelligence was working to
fill the gap.’  Washington eventually curtailed the ‘briefings.’  But
there is no evidence that Sherman ceased her activities on Netanyahu’s
behalf.  It’s likely she continues to provide timely intelligence to her
Israeli counterparts.

Israel is pursuing a complex strategy: 1. Opposing the negotiations
outright; 2. Organizing political forces in Congress to impose new
sanctions to undermine the negotiations; 3. Securing sympathetic US
officials on the negotiating team to spy and report the proceedings to
Israel and 4.  Helping Israel by making the most extreme demands on
Iran, offering the least concessions in order to force a breakdown of
the negotiations.

In other words, Israel pursues a complex division of labor:  Netanyahu
sets the rejectionist hardline.  US Zionists transmit that policy into
Congressional opposition.  Top officials in the State Department provide
intelligence for the hard ‘outsider’ campaign and work within the
negotiating framework to subvert the proceedings.  As the chief
negotiator, Sherman plays multiple roles on behalf of Israel, only one
of which involves the immediate transfer of highly sensitive
intelligence.  Sherman has ensured that most of Netanyahu’s demands are
incorporated into the US negotiating agenda in a win-win format. If Iran
rejects them, the US will effectively break-off negotiations, blame Iran
and impose even harsher sanctions; if Iran accepts the demands, its
peaceful nuclear program will be destroyed and it will be even more
vulnerable to an Israeli and/or US military attack with all its military
installations infiltrated and monitored by the US controlled
International Atomic Energy Agency(IAEA).

While Netanyahu bellows against the idea of negotiations with Iran, and
opposes any process lifting sanctions, the realistic agenda of the
Israeli Foreign Office is to:  1. Prolong the sanctions, 2. Minimize any
immediate relief, 3. Include clauses which would give the US any pretext
for unilaterally revoking sanctions without any consultation; 4.
Minimize the amount and level of enriched uranium Iran could retain
within the country; 5. Dismantle most of Iran’s centrifuges and impose
severe limitations on scientific research and development; and 6. Stop
operation of Iran’s multi-billion dollar new fortified nuclear power
facility at Fordow.

While Sherman cannot outright terminate the negotiations she is doing
everything in her power to either force a breakdown or thoroughly
humiliate the Iranians.


The failure of the Obama regime to go after its own State Department
officials acting as agents for Israel; its refusal to confront long-term
aggressive espionage designed to undermine its relations in the Middle
East; its tolerance of Israel’s direct interference via its ‘fraternal
organizations’ of the US legislative process; and its refusal to
identify, arrest, prosecute and sentence high-level spies within the
Cabinet have severely compromised the sovereignty of the United States.
  It is Netanyahu and his top advisers received confidential update on
the Geneva talks from Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs
Wendy Sherman, not ISIS, Iran, Houthis, Venezuela, Syria, Russia or
China, that poses an immediate and direct threat to US national
security.  Increasing Jewish colonialist expansion in Palestine; the
flaunting of its vast stockpile of nuclear, biological and chemical
weapons; operating its powerful network of political agents and spies in
high US offices are a direct, immediate threat to peace and stability in
the Middle East and the United States.

The activities of US Zionists as spies and shock troops for Israel’s
effort to destroy Iran and undermine US diplomacy, pose a long-term
threat to all Jews in America.  Sooner or later, Israel’s deep
penetration of US power centers and its manipulation of elected American
officials, will lead to a prolonged, bloody, destructive war.  And it
can be expected that the greater US public will seek out those
responsible and demand they be held to account.  Under the impact of the
devastation of war, who can be sure that the American public will be
able to distinguish between loyal Jewish-Americans and highly placed
Zionists acting on Israel’s behalf ?  For that reason it is incumbent
that peace-loving American Jews  get on their feet and clearly and
forthrightly denounce the Zionist minority, which claims to speak for them.

All those Zionist ‘wise-guys’ of both genders, who think they have been
so clever using their high office to serve Israel, are fooling
themselves.  More and more citizens are becoming aware that Israel’s
espionage, its dictates to the US Congress and its manipulation of
Executive powers are harming America.  At the present, highly placed
Zionist officials hold sway over the Obama Cabinet, but in the future
they may find themselves facing  charges of being agents of a foreign
power, and a threat to US national security.  They may find themselves
sharing a cell block with Jonathan Pollard! ==

(4) Boehner denies receiving info on Iran nuclear talks from Israel.

Boehner: Israel Didn't Give Me Info From Alleged Iran Talks Spying Operation

By Caitlin MacNea

Published March 24, 2015, 12:30 PM EDT

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said on Tuesday that he never received
confidential information on the Iran nuclear talks from Israel.

Boehner was responding to the Wall Street Journal report that Israel
spied on Iran's nuclear talks with the U.S. and other countries, and
then shared the confidential information with U.S. lawmakers.

"I read that story this morning, and frankly I was a bit shocked,"
Boehner told reporters on Tuesday, according to The Hill. "There was no
information revealed to me whatsoever."

"I'm shocked by the fact that there were reports in this press article
that information was being passed on by the Israelis to members of
Congress. I'm not aware of that at all," he continued. "I'm baffled by it."

The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that Israel began spying on
the talks as part of a larger effort by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu to build opposition to the nuclear deal.

Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, said Tuesday that "there is no
way" Israel spied on the negotiations between Iran and the U.S.

Netanyahu Unmasks Israel

March 18, 2015

  For years, U.S. politicians have rejected allegations of Israeli
racism and excused mistreatment of the Palestinians as a temporary
necessity that would be fixed by a two-state solution. But Israeli Prime
Minister Netanyahu has destroyed those arguments in his panic to keep
his job, reports Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry

Desperate to win reelection, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
stripped off Israel’s mask and exposed the ugliness that has deformed
his country over the past several decades. He abandoned the subterfuge
of a two-state solution, exposed the crass racism that underlies Israeli
politics, and revealed Israel’s blatant control of the U.S. Congress.

For years, these realities were known to many Americans, but – if they
spoke up – they were condemned as anti-Semites, so most stayed silent to
protect their careers and reputations. But – given Netanyahu’s brazen
admissions – the American people may have little choice but to finally
take notice of this troubling reality and demand a change in U.S. policy.

The truth is that the two-state solution has been a fiction for at least
the past two decades, dying in 1995 with the assassination of Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin. But the two-state illusion still served
important political purposes both for Israelis, who would pay it lip
service while continuing their steady encroachment on Palestinian lands,
and for U.S. politicians who could point to the mirage as an excuse not
to pressure Israel too hard on its human rights violations.

Yet, whenever any U.S. official actually tried to reach that shimmering
oasis of a two-state solution, it would recede into the distance. Then,
the Israelis would rely on their friends and allies in the news media
and politics to blame the Palestinians. Now, however, the illusion of
Israel seeking such an outcome in good faith has been lost in
Netanyahu’s anything-goes determination to keep his office – a case of
political expediency trumping strategic expediency.

In the closing days of the campaign, Netanyahu promised that as long as
he was prime minister he would block a Palestinian state and would
continue building Jewish settlements on what international law
recognizes as Palestinian land.

To further rally his right-wing Jewish base, Netanyahu warned that “Arab
voters are streaming in huge quantities to the polling stations” – an
alarm similar to racist politicians in the United States motivating the
white vote with claims about loads of blacks being bused to the polls.
With his crude appeal, Netanyahu undermined the longstanding denial that
Zionism is a form of racism.

Even before Netanyahu’s last-minute histrionics, he had exploited his
relationship with the United States to burnish his reputation as a world
leader by appearing for a record-tying third time as a foreign leader
addressing a joint session of the U.S. Congress. (Only Great Britain’s
Winston Churchill had appeared three times before Congress.)

Acting as almost a stand-in for the President of the United States,
Netanyahu gave what amounted to a faux State of the Union address filled
with scary tales about Iran and with dire warnings against international
negotiations seeking to ensure that Iran’s nuclear program remains peaceful.

Though some Democrats boycotted the speech because it represented an
unprecedented insult to an American president, the Republican majority
and many Democrats gave Netanyahu more than 40 ovations as they cheered
his vitriolic attacks on Iran and his denunciations of the negotiations
supported by President Barack Obama. [See’s “Congress
Cheers Netanyahu’s Hatred of Iran.”]

Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran

Then, last weekend, a prominent neoconservative Joshua Muravchik
admitted that the almost certain outcome of Netanyahu’s scuttling of the
negotiations would be to bomb Iran. Muravchik laid out this scenario in
a Washington Post article headlined “War is the only way to stop Iran”
in print editions and “War with Iran is probably our best option” online.

“What if force is the only way to block Iran from gaining nuclear
weapons? That, in fact, is probably the reality,” Muravchik wrote.
“Sanctions may have induced Iran to enter negotiations, but they have
not persuaded it to abandon its quest for nuclear weapons. Nor would the
stiffer sanctions that Netanyahu advocates bring a different result. …

“Does this mean that our only option is war? Yes, although an air
campaign targeting Iran’s nuclear infrastructure would entail less need
for boots on the ground than the war Obama is waging against the Islamic
State, which poses far smaller a threat than Iran does. … Wouldn’t
destroying much of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure merely delay its
progress? Perhaps, but we can strike as often as necessary.”

In other words, if Netanyahu keeps pulling the strings of the U.S.
government, an open-ended war on Iran is the almost certain result. But
Netanyahu, for short-term political gain, risked Israel’s longstanding
support from the American people by spotlighting his role as the
marionette of the U.S. Congress. [See’s “A Neocon
Admits the Plan to Bomb Iran.“]

Netanyahu’s reelection victory has clarified the situation for the
American people in another way. We now know there will be no two-state
solution with the Palestinians as Israel cements its status as an
apartheid state – and all the cries of “anti-Semitism” are not likely to
silence people taking notice of this reality since the Israeli Prime
Minister himself has taken the sting out of the slur.

The American people now have little choice but to recognize that Israel
intends to maintain and expand its “Jewish state” pushing the
Palestinians into isolated enclaves. For nearly a half century, Israel
has exercised effective control over these indigenous people in the West
Bank and Gaza (totaling more than 4 million people), but there was
always the hope of a Palestinian state.

Now, by jettisoning the prospect of a “two-state solution,” Netanyahu
will institutionalize what had long been the unacknowledged fate of the
Palestinians. In essence, Netanyahu is opting for a one-state solution,
just with most Palestinians confined to a state-less netherworld where
they will be denied political rights, left to wither and die.

And, whenever some Palestinians act up, Israel will wage war against
them, killing thousands at a time and destroying their homes and
infrastructure, what Israelis call “mowing the grass.”

With the facades gone, Americans must decide if they will embrace this
apartheid system or not. Many Christian Zionists, who are a powerful
force inside the Republican Party, are okay with Israel’s brutal
repression because they see the Jews taking this land as a step toward
fulfilling a biblical prophecy so Jesus can return to earth as its king.

But rational Americans are confronted with a difficult moral choice.
Either continue supporting Netanyahu in brutalizing the Palestinians and
in his looming war against Iran (using the U.S. military to carry it
out) or insist that the U.S. government reassess its relationship with

The developments of March 2015 – from Netanyahu’s proconsul-style speech
before the U.S. Congress to the racist incitements of his victorious
campaign – have forced thoughtful Americans to abandon their
longstanding excuses for Israeli behavior.

 From now on, there’s no pretending that “standing with Israel” doesn’t
mean kneeling in an obsequious acceptance of Netanyahu’s cruelty toward
the Palestinians and cooperation in an illegal and aggressive war
against Iran.

Francis Boyle: Brzezinski wants to break Russia up into constituent units

16.02.2015 | Source: Pravda.Ru

Pravda.Ru interviewed Francis Anthony Boyle, a professor of
international law at the University of Illinois College of Law about the
current politiclal situation in the world. We asked the professor to
comment on whether the crisis between Russia and the West is as
dangerous as it seems to be.

[...] Why is the West convinced that Russia can be broken down with the

I regret to say what we are seeing here in the Unites States are the
ascendancy of two factions in this country who are against Russia and
the Russians. First is Brzezinski, who was Obama's mentor when Obama was
a college student in Columbia, and Brzezinski in 2008 ran all the
foreign affairs and defence policies of the Obama presidential campaign
and has stacked his administration with advisor on Russia at the
National Security Council comes from the Brzezinski's outpoll CSIS there
in Washington D.C. I graduated from the same Ph.D. programme at Harvard
that produced Brzezinski before me.

He is a die-hard Russian hater, he hates Russia, he hates the Russian,
and he wants to break Russia up into its constituent units, and,
unfortunately, he has his people, his proteges in the Democratic Party
and in this Administration. Second faction lining against Russia are the
neo-conservatives, for e.g. this latest Brookings Institute report
calling for arming the Ukrainian military in these Nazi formations which
is now reflected in this latest bill just introduced into the Congress
yesterday, and the neoconservatives feel exactly the same way against
Russia and the Russians.

I went to school with large numbers of these neoconservatives at the
University of Chicago, Wolfowitz and all the rest of them. Many of them
are grandchildren of Jewish people, who fled the pogroms against Jews,
and they have been brainwashed against Russia and the Russians. So you
have two very powerful factions here in the United States against Russia
and the Russians who are driving this policy, and I regret to report
there are very few voices opposing this.

So in my assessment, the situation this is the dilemma that confronts
Russia today, that confronts President Putin and it also certainly
confronts me having gone to school with most these people both at
Chicago and Harvard and opposing them for a generation, and all
peace-loving people in America that somehow here in the United States we
are going to have to figure out a way to rein these people in to avoid
the direct military confrontation between Russia and the United States
that very well could occur if things get out of control there in
Ukraine. So it's an extremely dangerous situation for both Russia and
the united states. There's no question about it. I haven't seen any
thing this dangerous in my lifetime since the Cuba missile crisis that I
personally lived through the 1962 and it inspired me to spend ten years
in studying the Soviet Union Russia at the University Chicago and
Harvard - two of the leading centres for training experts in this area
in the United States. So it's extremely dangerous, I could not
underestimate how dangerous the situation is.

(7) "Progressive, Left" groups pave way for War by accepting official
9/11 story - Chossudovsky

Manufacturing Dissent

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Global Research, March 27, 2015

Professor Michel Chossudovsky is the author of many important books. His
latest is The Globalization of War: America’s Long War Against Humanity.
Chossudovsky shows that Washington has globalized war while the US
president is presented as a global peace-maker, complete with the Nobel
Peace Prize.

Washington has its military deployed in 150 countries, has the world
divided up into six US military commands and has a global strike plan
that includes space operations.

Nuclear weapons are part of the global strike plan and have been
elevated for use in a pre-emptive first strike, a dangerous departure
from their Cold War role.

America’s militarization includes military armament for local police for
use against the domestic population and military coercion of sovereign
countries in behalf of US economic imperialism.

One consequence is the likelihood of nuclear war. Another consequence is
the criminalization of US foreign policy. War crimes are the result.
These are not the war crimes of individual rogue actors but war crimes
institutionalized in established guidelines and procedures. “What
distinguishes the Bush and Obama administrations,” Chossudovsky writes,
“is that the concentration camps, targeted assassinations and torture
chambers are now openly considered as legitimate forms of intervention,
which sustain ‘the global war on terrorism’ and support the spread of
‘Western democracy.’”

Chossudovsky points out that the ability of US citizens to protest and
resist the transformation of their country into a militarist police
state is limited. Washington and the compliant foundations now fund the
dissent movement in order to control it. He quotes Noam Chomsky and
Edward S. Herman about manufacturing consent. He lets Paul Kivel
describe how funding of dissent by the elite results in the co-option of
grassroots community leadership. The same thing is happening to
environmental organizations. Black Americans also have lost their
leaders to the elite’s money and ability to bestow position and emoluments.

Chossudovsky notes that progressive, left-wing, and anti-war groups have
endorsed the “war on terror” and uncritically accept the official 9/11
story, which provides the basis for Washington’s wars.

Having accepted the lies, there is no basis for protest. Thus its absence.

As Professor Stephen Cohen has observed, dissent has disappeared from
American foreign policy discussion. In place of dissent there is
exhortation to more war. A good example is today’s (March 26, 2015)
op-ed in the New York Times by neoconservative John R. Bolton, US
ambassador to the UN during the George W. Bush regime.

Bolton calls for bombing Iran. Anything short of a military attack on
Iran, Bolton says, has “an air of unreality” and will guarantee that
Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Turkey will also develop nuclear weapons in
order to protect themselves from Iran. According to Bolton, the Israeli
and American nuclear arsenals are not threatening, but Iran’s would be.

Of course, there is no evidence that Iran has a nuclear weapons program,
but Bolton asserts it anyway. Moreover, Bolton manages to overlook that
the agreement being worked out with Iran halts the Iranian enrichment
program far below the level necessary for nuclear weapons. Bolton’s
belief that Iran would be able to hide a weapons program if permitted to
have nuclear energy is unsubstantiated. It is merely an implausible

The neoconservatives constitute a war lobby. When one war doesn’t work,
they want another. They have an ever expanding war list. Remember, the
neoconservatives are the ones who promised us a 3-week “cakewalk” Iraq
war costing $70 billion and paid for by Iraq oil revenues. After 8 years
of war costing a minimum of $3,000 billion paid for by US taxpayers, the
US gave up and withdrew. Today jihadists are carving a new country out
of parts of Syria and Iraq.

It is now a known fact that the neocon Bush regime’s Iraq war was
totally based on lies, just as is every other neocon war and the current
drive for war with Russia and Iran. Despite their record of lies and
failure, the neocons still control US foreign policy, and neocon Nuland
is busy at work fomenting “color revolutions” or coups in the former
Soviet republics of Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan.

Without the support of the New York Times, the neocons could not have
got the Iraq War going. Now the New York Times, faithful to the neocons
but faithless to the American people, is helping the neocons get a war
going with Iran and Russia.

I have friends who are college presidents who still read and believe the
New York Times. The wars with Iran and Russia that the New York Times is
encouraging will be much more dangerous than the wars with Iraq and
Afghanistan. Humanity might not survive them.

(8) NSA spyware within hard drives supplied to Iran

Hi Peter, one of my neighbours, who was an American citizen, worked for
an Iranian owned company in Australia, some years ago. He would use his
contacts in the USA to purchase IT equipment that was banned to be sold
to Iran and arrange delivery to a bogus Australian company. When this
equipment landed in Australia it was delivered to an address and then
"overhauled" before being renamed as a "legal IT machine" supplied by
Australia and forwarded to Iran.

Included in the "overhaul" was an item of spyware on the hard drives,
supplied by the US intelligence service, the inclusion was unknown to
the Iranians who ran the company.

This was the 1990's and went on for years.  All sort of behind the veils
of secrecy and covert spy activities.

Cheers Howard.

(9) Spyware in HD device manager drivers

Date: Wed, 25 Feb 2015 16:21:08 -0500 From: Subject: NSA HD software


for win 7 OS - Lenovo

I removed a deleterious shadow program that was attached to my HD device
manager drivers.

I first shut it down to see if there were any effects. Once the shutdown
proved meaningless to operation, I queried the properties as to the
owner but to no avail. It did have a route of data flow to the IE
browser. I assume this is the NSA toy. Since I did that I have had
nothing but attempted break-ins that try to change my security
descriptors. Some one has dumped an esoteric program into my registry
that turns-on esoteric cab files that dump to my IE and to the Temp
files. That data is easily expunged before connection to the WEB.

There is also resident software by McCaffey that resides in the original
program cab files of sector 1. I caught McCaffey software doing about
the same thing - making duplicate copies of my work. I dumped that
program from my sector 1 and do not have that problem anymore.

The problem is that the NSA or any government agency has any number of
voyeurs willing to compromise a pc. They make money selling tons of data
to the Gov.

What pisses me off the most is the trouble they do to my OS and the
processor time they interrupt just to collect nothing!

Most of the data dumps are sent to Cray Computers at isolated are code
500 fiber optic network stations where a cypher program sifts and sniffs
to find some connection to terrorism or major crime.
