saville wasn't just a friend of israel he was also knighted by the royals and by the pope

There is a network of families across europe that some authors believe came into europe when the romans destroyed the temple in jerusalem in 70AD. Those families were fleeing the approaching roman army and travelled by boat to various jewish trading posts around the mediterenean sea including marseilles in the south of france

Over the ensuing centuries they were through their contacts in the merchant class able to intermarry with frankish aristocracy. What kept them united as a coherent network was their adherence to the old QABALISTIC ceremonial magic which they maintained through secret societies. They entered britain in the armies of william the conqueror and within a short space of time 3 royals were assassinated in the new forest.

A series of assassinations in scotland some time later saw them get their candidate on the throne of scotland in the form of robert the bruce

They formed the knights templar in order to return to jerusalem to dig into temple mount to seek the scrolls they knew had been left there by their ancestors before they fled the approaching romans

They rose through the aristocratic ranks and became royalty around europe and founded FREEMASONRY in order to continue their qabalistic ceremonial magic and to provide a platform through which to expand their network and influence in order to gain and maintain a global reach

They built the 'british empire' and they created the state of israel. Every time they came into contact with an indigienous people they stole the title to their land and culturally and physically genocided them including the people of britain in particular the gaels

That network is what controls britain, israel and the US today and they are black magicians bent on world domination. Saville was a black magician born on halloween as the seventh son of a seventh son and david says he procured children for the satanic network and his work on childrens TV through the BBC certainly gave him ready access to children

That network controls the BBC and funded fabian socialism. It sought a war against iraq and that's why they murdered the weapons inspector Dr David Kelly who was trying to warn the british public that they were being lied to about there supposedly being weapons of mass destruction in iraq which just like the false claims that assad had gassed his own people were simply a pretext for further imperialist expansion

They are set on building another temple to solomon on temple mount which is why there is constant agitation in that area

They are controlling many of the hitech companies and are smuggling tech from silicon valley to israel, under the talpiot programme, where work is being done on AI, virtual reality, surveillance tech and a host of other tech which will all feed into the technocracy that is growing up around us while people fixate on megan markles wedding dress
I agree with that post entirely
Re: the bolded part..

I would go further and say they were tracking the resurrected Christ and his family, through Europe, He stayed in France ( item the Vatican bought years back, remember?) then back to Britain (Wales actually), and then Scotland after he set up his first church in Wales, according to Wilson and Blackett.
I think the last remaining groups of Christians who were not slaughtered, went underground and was the initial foundation of Secret societies away from church and state, but these Gnostic's societies who carried the secret messages of truth were infiltrated, and destroyed from within and completely overtaken, and their secrets which they stole and hide from us, are used against humanity, to mock us for our ignorance.

If the Vatican was for Christ, they would make available all those books on the 53 miles of shelving in their vaults.
That belongs to the collective mind, not a select few, imho.

Edit:
I forgot to add in relation to your post, I read that the Somalia crisis has been used to 'smuggle' Ethiopian Jews to Israel through the back door?
I think it might have been John Pilger but Im not 100% certain.
If this is the case, why would they need to hide it?
sounds 911y to me..

De-Arabizing Jerusalem: Biblical “History” Underwrites Israel’s Ethnic Cleansing
The reality is that for seven decades Israel has been engaged in the crime of ethnic cleansing. If this crime is not immediately brought to a stop, the City of Jerusalem will lose its heritage forever.
by Miko Peled
August 20th, 2018

Israel claims a historical connection to Jerusalem that dates back to biblical times, specifically to King David. Silwan, a community of 55,000 residents just outside the Old City is a representation of what is taking place all over the city. Walking in Silwan earlier this month, I heard an Israeli tour guide explain that there is a historical connection that dates back to King David. The problem with that argument is that for at least two centuries Jewish and Christian archeologists alike have tried and failed to find historical proof that King David existed. Since the Bible is a book of faith and not a historical document, the historical argument goes by the wayside. Still, in the name of what this tour guide called “science,” tunnels are being dug under the homes of the people of Silwan to find more archeology. The past trumps the present and the digging destroys the homes’ foundations; the walls become unsteady and city inspectors notify the residents that they must leave because their homes are unsafe.

Ahmed, a local Palestinian, showed me the cracks in his homes, and then pointed to the new Hebrew street names placed in Silwan. Only a few hundred Jewish settlers live in Silwan yet the original streets names have been taken down and replaced with Hebrew names. “They just changed the street names of our community, and made them Hebrew, Jewish. No one spoke to us, we never agreed to this.”

Two organizations that have made it their mission to de-Arabize the city’s Muslim Quarter and Silwan are Ateret Cohanim and Elad, or the City of David Foundation. Facing these two violent, relentless groups that are registered in the United States as not-for-profit organizations, the Jerusalem municipality, and the Israeli government — all of whom want the Palestinians out — local residents find themselves helpless as they see their community being taken over by radical Jewish settlers, both Israeli and foreign.

In a speech given in January 1950 in front of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, Foreign Minister Moshe Sharet referred to the UN demand to keep Jerusalem sovereign and said that, “Jerusalem’s status as the capital city of the State of Israel is enshrined in history and guaranteed by the present reality.” The history is questionable, and the present reality is that for seven decades Israel has been engaged in the crime of ethnic cleansing. If this crime is not immediately brought to a stop, the City of Jerusalem will lose its heritage forever.

How Israel Spies on US Citizens
The Truths that Won’t Be Heard
Orient XXI > Alain Gresh > 29 August 2018

A never-shown Al Jazeera documentary on the pro-Israel lobby in the US reveals possibly illegal Israeli spying on US citizens, and the lobby’s fear of a changing political mood.

An investigative documentary by Qatari broadcaster Al Jazeera scheduled for broadcast earlier this year was expected to cause a sensation. Its four 50-minute episodes centred on the young and personable James Anthony Kleinfeld, British, Jewish, an Oxford graduate who speaks six languages including Dutch and Yiddish and is well informed about Middle East conflicts – seemingly a natural fit for a western foreign ministry or a major thinktank.

The documentary showed Kleinfeld being enthusiastically recruited for his skills by The Israel Project (TIP), which defends Israel’s image in the media, and associating with senior members of organisations that support Israel unconditionally, especially the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (Aipac), the powerful US lobbying group. For five months, he mixed with them at cocktail parties, congresses and conventions, and on training courses. He won their trust and they opened up to him, abandoning doublespeak and official lines. How, he asked, did they go about influencing the US Congress? “Congressmen don’t do anything unless you pressure them, and the only way to do that is with money.”1 How did they counter Palestinian rights activists on university campuses? “With the anti-Israel people, what’s most effective, what we found at least in the last year, is you do the opposition research, put up some anonymous website, and then put up targeted Facebook ads.”

Kleinfeld’s contacts told him they were spying on US citizens with the help of Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs, founded in 2006, which reports directly to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. One official said: “We are a different government working on foreign soil, [so] we have to be very, very cautious.” And indeed some of the things they do could be subject to prosecution under US law.

At the end of Kleinfeld’s time at TIP, his boss there, Eric Gallagher, was so happy with his performance that he wanted to hire “Tony”2 on a permanent basis: “I would love it if you came to work for me. I need someone who’s a team player, hardworking, excited, passionate, curious, well-rounded, well-spoken, well read. You’re all of those things.” Kleinfeld turned down the job. His qualifications were genuine, but he was, of course, an undercover reporter, sent by Al Jazeera to investigate the pro-Israel lobby. He filmed conversations using a hidden camera and later, as part of an Al Jazeera investigation team led by executive producer Phil Rees, put together a spectacular documentary. There was all the more excitement over its impending broadcast, because a 2017 Al Jazeera report on the pro-Israel lobby in the UK had revealed Israel’s interference in Britain’s internal affairs, and its attempts to bring down the deputy foreign secretary, Alan Duncan, whom it considered too pro-Palestinian. This had led to the Israeli ambassador in London making a public apology and a high-ranking diplomat being recalled to Tel Aviv.
Burying the Project

The documentary was expected to be a media sensation, bringing outraged denials and intense controversy. But then the broadcast was postponed, with no official explanation. Eventually, articles in the US Jewish media3 revealed that it would never be shown. Clayton Swisher, Al Jazeera’s director of investigative journalism, expressed regret at the decision in a published article, and announced he was taking sabbatical leave.4 The documentary had been sacrificed to the fierce battle between Qatar on one side and Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the other for US support in the feud that began in June 2017. What better way to do this than by winning the favour of the pro-Israel lobby, known for its influence on US policy in the Middle East?

To tip the balance in its favour, Qatar “postponed” the broadcast, winning the halt of the campaign against Doha by a section of the right wing of an already very rightwing of a section of the right wing of an already very right-wing lobby. Morton Klein, president of the Zionist Organisation of America (ZOA) and a close friend of Donald Trump’s former advisor Steve Bannon, flew to Doha and said he was delighted to see the documentary buried (see “Qatar charms and wriggles out of trouble”). That groups such as ZOA, which had not long ago been accusing Qatar of funding Hamas and terrorism, should change sides in return for the documentary’s suppression says a lot about its explosive revelations.

But burying over a year’s work caused turmoil at Al Jazeera. Some were keen for the revelations not to sink into the quicksand of geopolitical compromise, which is why, thanks to a friend in the Gulf, I was able to watch all four episodes in their near-final version.

What was striking was seeing the feverish mood of the pro-Israel lobby over the last few years due to a blind fear of losing its influence. How can that be, when support for Israel is massive in the US, and both Republicans and Democrats unfailingly back it, no matter what its ventures? And when, since Trump’s election, Washington no longer wishes to act as “unfair” broker in the Israeli-Arab conflict, and has sided with Israel’s most right-wing government ever? Despite this apparently favourable climate, a spectre haunts the lobby: the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS).

BDS, launched in 2005, aims to use the non-violent methods that proved effective in South Africa under apartheid. It is growing in popularity on US campuses, but David Brog, director of strategic affairs of Christians United for Israel and executive director of the Maccabee Task Force, a group fighting against BDS, questioned whether it is really a cause for alarm. He said: “Israel’s booming. It’s the startup nation. More venture capital is going into Israel today than at any other time in history. So why don’t we just calm down, realise that BDS is worthless, it’s losing, and ignore it? I don’t think BDS was ever supposed to be about getting colleges to take their money out of Israel. So if we focus on the dollars, we can feel really good about ourselves. If we focus on the fact that an effort is being made to distance us, those who love Israel, from the rising generation, I think we need to worry. When you get to millennials and students, it’s a bad situation. And it’s getting to the point now where the majority is more favourable towards the Palestinians than the Israelis.” Jacob Baime, executive director of the Israel on Campus Coalition, a group of organisations that fights BDS in universities, is also worried: “The one thing every member of Congress and president and ambassador and newspaper editors has in common is, by and large, they spent a little bit of time on campus and probably those were formative years.”
“The bigger problem”

There’s another worry for the lobby: support for Israel has traditionally transcended the Republican-Democrat divide, and a few months before the end of his presidency, Barack Obama unconditionally approved $38 bn of aid to Israel over 10 years, though his relations with Netanyahu were terrible. But the political landscape is changing, and the lobby’s unconditional support for Trump is narrowing its base to the Republican Party and the evangelical right.

David Hazony, founding editor of The Tower Magazine and an influential member of TIP, said in the documentary: “The specific potential of an immediate boycott, that’s not a problem. What’s a bigger problem is the Democratic Party, the Bernie Sanders people, bringing all the anti-Israel people into the Democratic Party. Then being pro-Israel becomes less a bipartisan issue, and then every time the White House changes, the policies towards Israel change. That becomes a dangerous thing for Israel. There is actually an important battle being fought on the campuses.” John Mearsheimer, co-author of a well-known book on the lobby,5 confirmed this in his frequent comments in the documentary. He said that support for Israel is now growing among Republicans and falling among Democrats: “There is a substantial difference in support for Israel in the two parties.”

How to halt this trend? It would be hard to do it through political debate. Since the failure of the 1993 Oslo accords, Israel has been led by far-right parties that reject any diplomatic solution. There is no question of any discussion of the fate of the Palestinians, the future of the settlements or the tragedy in Gaza. And the lobby’s support for Netanyahu and Trump is unlikely to generate much enthusiasm among US students. Journalist Max Blumenthal points out that the lobby took a similar approach to the documentary, refusing discussion and likening investigative journalism to espionage; discrediting Al Jazeera by dismissing it as a puppet of Qatar; and insisting that the documentary’s subject was “the Jewish lobby” not support for Israel (Twitter, 15 February 2018). It could thus avoid any discussion of the details of the documentary’s revelations.

Noah Pollak, executive director of the Emergency Committee for Israel, said to a gathering of pro-Israel students: “You discredit the messenger as a way of discrediting the message. When you talk about . . . BDS, you talk about them as a hate group, as a movement that absolutely endorses violence against civilians . . . aka terrorism”– and, of course, as anti-semitic. Pollak called Jewish Voice for Peace (a US leftwing organisation focused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict) “Jewish Voice for Hamas”. He told Kleinfeld: “The majority of Americans are pro-Israel. Whereas if you take a poll of Israel in the UK, it’s just pure hatred of Israel. Your country basically let half of fucking Pakistan move in. So you have a different problem than we do here.”

To discredit the messenger, as the documentary reveals, the pro-Israel lobby has built up a spy network over the last few years to gather information on opponents’ private lives, careers and political convictions. Baime said: “The research operation is very high-tech. When I got here a few years ago, the budget was $3,000. Today it’s like a million and a half, or more. Probably it’s two million at this point. I don’t even know, it’s huge. It’s a massive budget.” He and his colleagues are keen to stay invisible: “We do it securely and anonymously. That’s the key.”
“If you’re a racist, the world should know”

One of the groups most feared by Palestinian rights activists is Canary Mission,6 whose funding, members and methods are shrouded in secrecy. A journalist with close links to the lobby said: “People who hate it, the people who are being targeted by it, call it a blacklist. You have names here that show up on this database. Students and professors, faculty, speakers, organisations that have ties to terrorism, outright ties to terrorism, or terrorists who have called for the destruction of the Jewish state.” Canary Mission’s website describes its aim as being to “ensure that today’s radicals are not tomorrow’s employees.” Above the biography of each victim is the slogan “If you’re a racist, the world should know.”

Kleinfeld managed to talk to Canary Mission’s founder and financial backer, Adam Milstein, chairman of the Israeli-American Council (IAC). Milstein was jailed briefly for tax fraud in 2009, but that didn’t prevent him from carrying on his activities from prison. He explained his philosophy to Kleinfeld: “First of all, investigate who they [the pro-Palestine activists] are. What’s their agenda? They’re picking on the Jews because it’s easy, because it’s popular. We need to expose what they really are. And we need to expose the fact that they are anti everything we believe in. And we need to put them on the run. We’re doing it by exposing who they are, what they are, the fact that they are racist, the fact that they are bigots, [that] they’re anti-democracy.”

Students recounted in the documentary exactly what they faced. Summer Awad, who took part in a campaign for Palestinian rights in Knoxville, Tennessee, was harassed on Twitter, and information about her, some of it dating back a decade, was posted online: “They are digging and digging. Somebody contacted my employer and asked for me to be fired. If they continue to employ me, they will be denounced as anti-semitic.” Denunciation can end careers or make it hard for students to find a job after graduation. To get their names off the blacklist, some victims write messages of “repentance”, which Canary Mission posts on its site. These anonymous confessions, whose writers explain that they were “deceived”, are much like those of suspected communist sympathisers under McCarthyism in the US in the 1950s, or victims of authoritarian regimes today. Baime said: “It’s psychological warfare. It drives them crazy. They either shut down, or they spend time investigating [the accusations against them] instead of attacking Israel. It’s extremely effective.” Another person told Kleinfeld: “I think antisemitism as a smear is not what it used to be.”

These campaigns, based on personal information gathered about US citizens, would not be possible without the resources of Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs. Its director-general, Sima Vaknin-Gil, said in a talk at the IAC annual conference shown in the documentary: “The fact that the Israeli government decided to be a key player means a lot because we can bring things that NGOs or civilian entities involved in this thing [don’t have] . . . We’ve got the budget. We can bring things to the table that are quite different. Everybody out there who has anything to do with BDS should ask himself twice: should I be on this side or do I want to be on the other side?”
“A destabilising force”

Vaknin-Gil admitted that to gather information, “we have FDD. We have others working on this.” The Foundation for the Defence of Democracies (FDD) is a conservative think tank that has played an important role in the recent rapprochement between the UAE and Israel. It took part in the 2017 campaign against Qatar and Al Jazeera, which was accused of being a destabilising force in the region. Under US law, organisations and individuals working for foreign governments must register with the Department of Justice. Would the DOJ dare take the FDD to court for failing to register?7

As Ali Abunimah, co-founder of the website The Electronic Intifada, says, “if you had on tape a statement of a senior Russian or Iranian or even Canadian official saying that they were running covert operations, to spy on Americans, and using an organisation like the Foundation for the Defence of Democracies as a front . . . it would be a bombshell.” This kind of cooperation is not limited to the FDD, and many of the people Kleinfeld talked to, including Baime, told him so in confidence, though they didn’t want to elaborate on such as sensitive subject.

There are other revelations, like the way that TIP takes charge of US journalists visiting Jerusalem and feeds them ready-made stories for publication on their return to the US; how the lobby pay for upscale holidays in Israel for US Congress members, circumventing US law; and pressures the media, including news agencies, to amend wires and copy.

Everything seems to be going well for Israel, but its American supporters, despite their extensive resources, are nervous. The future seems dark to them, and even those most likely to support them are wavering. The documentary shows Vaknin-Gil admitting in a Knesset hearing: “Today we [have] lost the second generation of Jews, which are the millennial generation of Jews. I hear this from their parents, who come and explain to me what a hard time they’re having with their kids at Friday dinners. They don’t recognise the state of Israel and don’t see us as an entity to be admired.”

Qatar Charms and Wriggles out of Trouble

The Zionist Organisation of America (ZOA) posted on its website on 10 April that it “and its president Morton Klein are proud and pleased to announce that it was through ZOA’s and Mr Klein’s efforts, including Mr Klein’s numerous, exhaustive and round-the-clock meetings in Doha, Qatar, with the Emir and other top Qatari officials, and follow-up discussions, that Qatar agreed to cancel and not allow the release of a viciously anti-Semitic Al Jazeera ‘undercover’ film series on the so-called ‘American Jewish lobby’.”

Al Jazeera replied a week later: “Klein obviously mischaracterises the subject of the series as the ‘American Jewish Lobby,’ when the investigation is into American pro-Israel organisations (including the ZOA), which work to further the interests of a foreign power on American soil. . . It is astonishing that Mr Klein writes about a documentary series that he has not seen in terms that are prejudicial, inaccurate and inflammatory.” Al Jazeera was right that the documentary does not refer to a “Jewish lobby,” though this term, coined by a former president of the World Jewish Congress,8 is widely used in the US. However, AJ has remained silent about its decision not to broadcast the documentary.

To understand what is going on, we must go back to 2017, to the beginning of the standoff between Qatar and some of its neighbours, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), supported by Egypt. These countries embargoed Qatar, demanding that it break off relations with Iran, shut down Al Jazeera, close a Turkish military base currently under construction, and sever links with “terrorist organisations”, notably the Muslim Brotherhood and Hizbullah.

It is true that, since Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani (father of the current emir, Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani) came to power in 1995, Qatar’s foreign policy has been original and independent, notably towards Saudi Arabia. Qatar hosts one of the US’s strategic military bases in the region; until the Arab Spring, it had excellent relations with Hizbullah and the Syrian government, before deciding to help the Syrian rebels; it has close links with Hamas and gives financial aid to Gaza; and it was the only Arab country to host an Israeli trade mission, until it was closed after the 2008-09 Gaza war. Al Jazeera – though criticised over its coverage of the Arab revolts, especially the war in Libya and, more recently, the situation in Turkey and its complaisance towards the Erdo?an regime – has opened up an unprecedented debate in the Arab world; and this irritates most governments in the region.

In the months after the ultimatum issued by its neighbours, Qatar seemed to vacillate. There was talk of a possible invasion by Saudi Arabia, especially as President Donald Trump, whose son-in-law Jared Kushner has close links with both Saudi Arabia and the UAE, was against Qatar.

Washington Offensive

Amid these tensions, Qatar’s emir decided on a PR offensive in Washington, where his Saudi and UAE opponents already had strong connections, notably with the Foundation for the Defence of Democracies (FDD). Qatar hired PR firms in the US; spending on these had reached $5m by October 2017 and $20 m a few months later. The targets were conservatives close to Trump, especially the pro-Israel lobby, whose favour Qatar needed.

There were a number of visits to Qatar, by figures such as Alan Dershowitz, a pro-Israel academic who is a Democrat but also a friend of Donald Trump; Mike Huckabee, a former Republican governor of Arkansas and a Christian Zionist whose daughter Sarah is White House spokesperson; and the conservative radio show host John Batchelor. These suggested that the campaign had some success. The effects were felt in Washington, which stepped in to mediate. This April Trump invited Al-Thani to Washington, and the emir showed his gratitude by announcing a purchase of US weapons. He also made donations to Zionist organisations such as Our Soldiers Speak, which organises tours of the US by Israeli army officers.

This rapprochement with Qatar divided the pro-Israel lobby. Yigal Carmon, president of the Middle East Media Research Institute (Memri), a website that “monitors” Arab media – and often distorts what they publish – wrote in an indignant article titled “Qatar – the emirate that fools them all – and its enablers”: “It is sad to see American Jewish leaders bolstering anti-Semitic stereotypes by ignorantly intervening in internal conflicts that do not concern them, complex inter-Arab conflicts which are difficult to assess even as observers.”9

In the Israeli daily Haaretz, Jonathan Schanzer of the FDD complained: “There is nothing wrong with analysts and intellectuals travelling to Qatar to learn about the situation there. The problem is that during those visits, they’re not hearing the other side of the story. They are getting the government line and then they go home. They need to hear also from Qatar’s critics. There is a lot of material they should become aware of about Qatar’s ties to Hamas, Al-Qaida, the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood and other problematic actors.”10 In the Al Jazeera documentary, Schanzer told “Tony” Kleinfeld that he was sad his efforts to link the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement to “terrorist” organisations (initially Hamas, then the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine) in US public opinion had failed.

Over the last year, Qatar has managed to avert danger and put its opponents on the defensive. But the question is what price the Palestinians will pay for this new policy.

Sheldon Adelson-backed pro-Israel campus initiative to operate on 80 campuses
[email protected] August 31, 2018

An Adelson pro-Israel initiative will operate on 80 campuses, spending six figures per campus – in total, about $8 million to $10 million this school year. Among its activities will be to “recruit influencers” and take them on trips to Israel.

Reposted from JTA

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The Maccabee Task Force, the initiative funded by billionaire philanthropist Sheldon Adelson targeting the campus BDS movement, will double its presence to 80 campuses and for the first time will operate in Canada.

In place since 2016, the task force works with pro-Israel students on programs countering activities of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement targeting Israel. Last year it funded programs on 40 campuses chosen because of the intensity of BDS activity on the campus.

The task force sends representatives to campuses and solicits ideas from pro-Israel students and groups on campus, then funds those deemed viable. Its most successful program has been to recruit influencers on campus – including student leaders who might already favor BDS – and send them to Israel on fact-finding tours.

In an interview Wednesday, David Brog, who directs the task force, predicted that 70-75 of the 80 campuses with a Maccabee task force will include Israel trips. For the first time, the task force will operate on four or five campuses in Canada, Brog said.

Censored Israel lobby film starts leaking
Asa Winstanley Lobby Watch 5 September 2018

After The Electronic Intifada exclusively released the first excerpts from the censored Al Jazeera documentary The Lobby – USA last week, further details have emerged.

At The Grayzone Project, journalist Max Blumenthal released more scenes from the film showing how right-wing Israel lobbyist Noah Pollak faked a grassroots protest against Students for Justice in Palestine’s national conference in 2016.



In the undercover footage, a junior staffer from a right-wing think tank, agrees that their protest is “astroturfing,” which he describes as “when you set up fake protests.”

Another describes it as a “foot soldier activity” which “we’ve been forced to do” by managers.

The first staffer complains that Pollak “did a really shitty job of getting me excited” for the protest. He summarizes that Pollak’s pitch amounted to: “Look, there are these jihadis who basically support suicide bombing, and they’re on a campus and you have to stop them.”

“It’s a chance to shout at Arabs,” another of the group says.
“Provoke everyone”

The footage then shows Pollak’s recruits taunting Palestine solidarity activists on campus with claims they support “terrorists” and “baby killers.”

Pollak leads the neoconservative Emergency Committee for Israel and writes for right-wing website, The Washington Free Beacon.

In the released undercover footage he explains his motives: “We’re going to be more pro-Israel than you can even imagine. Just to, like, provoke everyone.”

He complains to the undercover reporter “Tony” that polling in the UK reveals “pure hatred of Israel” and puts this down to Britain supposedly letting “half of fucking Pakistan in.”

Israel’s Fifth Column
Exercising control from inside the government
By Philip Giraldi
Global Research, September 04, 2018

Referring to Israel during an interview in August 1983, U.S. Navy Admiral and former head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Thomas Moorer said:

“I’ve never seen a President — I don’t care who he is — stand up to them. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn’t writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on.”

Moorer was speaking generally but he had something specific in mind, namely the June 8, 1967, Israeli attack on the American intelligence ship, U.S.S. Liberty, which killed 34 American crewmen and wounded 173 more. The ship was operating in international waters and was displaying a huge stars and stripes but Israeli warplanes, which had identified the vessel as American, even strafed the life rafts to kill those who were fleeing the sinking ship. It was the bloodiest attack on a U.S. Naval vessel ever outside of wartime and the crew deservedly received the most medals every awarded to a single ship based on one action. Yes, it is one hell of a story of courage under fire, but don’t hold your breath waiting for Hollywood to make a movie out of it.

A key component in the Israeli penetration of the U. S. government has been President George W. Bush’s 2004 signing off on the creation of the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (OTFI) within the Department of the Treasury. The group’s website proclaims that it is responsible for “safeguarding the financial system against illicit use and combating rogue nations, terrorist facilitators, weapons of mass destruction (WMD) proliferators, money launderers, drug kingpins, and other national security threats,” but it has from its founding been really all about safeguarding Israel’s perceived interests. Grant Smith notes however, how “the secretive office has a special blind spot for major terrorism generators, such as tax-exempt money laundering from the United States into illegal Israeli settlements and proliferation financing and weapons technology smuggling into Israel’s clandestine nuclear weapons complex.”
Understanding Jewish Power

The first head of the office was Undersecretary of Treasury Stuart Levey, who operated secretly within the Treasury itself while also coordinating regularly both with the Israeli government as well as with pro-Israel organizations like AIPAC, WINEP and the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD). Levey also traveled regularly to Israel on the taxpayer’s dime, as did his three successors in office.

Levey left OTFI in 2011 and was replaced by David Cohen. It was reported then and subsequently that counterterrorism position at OTFI were all filled by individuals who were both Jewish and Zionist. Cohen continued the Levey tradition of resisting any transparency regarding what the office was up to. Smith reports how, on September 12, 2012, he refused to answer reporter questions “about Israel’s possession of nuclear weapons, and whether sanctioning Iran, a signatory to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, over its internationally-inspected civilian nuclear program was an example of endemic double standards at OTFI.”

Cohen was in turn succeeded in 2015 by Adam Szubin who was then replaced in 2017 by Sigal Pearl Mandelker, a former and possibly current Israeli citizen. All of the heads of OTFI have therefore been Jewish and Zionist. All work closely with the Israeli government, all travel to Israel frequently on “official business” and they all are in close liaison with the Jewish groups most often described as part of the Israel Lobby. And the result has been that many of the victims of OTFI have been generally enemies of Israel, as defined by Israel and America’s Jewish lobbyists. OTFI’s Specially Designated Nationals And Blocked Persons List (SDN), which includes sanctions and enforcement options, features many Middle Eastern Muslim and Christian names and companies but nothing in any way comparable relating to Israel and Israelis, many of whom are well known to law enforcement otherwise as weapons traffickers and money launderers. And once placed on the SDN there is no transparent way to be removed, even if the entry was clearly in error.

Here in the United States, action by OTFI has meant that Islamic charities have been shut down and individuals exercising their right to free speech through criticism of the Jewish state have been imprisoned. If the Israel Anti-Boycott Act succeeds in making its way through congress the OTFI model will presumably become the law of the land when it comes to curtailing free speech whenever Israel is involved.

The OTFI story is outrageous, but it is far from unique. There is a history of American Jews closely attached to Israel being promoted by powerful and cash rich domestic lobbies to act on behalf of the Jewish state. To be sure, Jews who are Zionists are vastly overrepresented in all government agencies that have anything at all to do with the Middle East and one can reasonably argue that the Republican and Democratic Parties are in the pockets of Jewish billionaires named Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban.

Neoconservatives, most of whom are Jewish, infiltrated the Pentagon under the Reagan Administration and they and their heirs in government and media (Doug Feith, Paul Wolfowitz, Scooter Libby, Richard Perle, Bill Kristol) were major players in the catastrophic war with Iraq, which, one of the architects of that war, Philip Zelikow, described in 2004 as being all about Israel. The same people are now in the forefront of urging war with Iran.

American policy towards the Middle East is largely being managed by a small circle of Orthodox Jews working for presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner. One of them, David Friedman, is currently U.S. Ambassador to Israel. Friedman, a bankruptcy lawyer who has no diplomatic or foreign policy credentials, is a Zionist Jew who is also a supporter of the illegal settlements on the West Bank and a harsh critic of other Jews who in any way disagree with the Israeli government. He has contributed money to settlement construction, which would be illegal if OTFI were doing its job, and has consistently defended the settlers while condemning the Palestinians in speeches in Israel. He endlessly and ignorantly repeats Israeli government talking points and has tried to change the wording of State Department communications, seeking to delete the word “occupied” when describing Israel’s control of the West Bank. His humanity does not extend beyond his Jewishness, defending the Israeli shooting thousands of unarmed Gazan protesters and the bombing of schools, hospitals and cultural centers. How he represents the United States and its citizens who are not dual nationals must be considered a mystery.

Image result for Rabbi Aryeh Lightstone

Friedman’s top adviser is Rabbi Aryeh Lightstone, who is described by the Embassy as an expert in “Jewish education and pro-Israel advocacy.” Once upon a time, in an apparently more enlightened mood, Lightstone described Donald Trump as posing “an existential danger both to the Republican Party and to the U.S.” and even accused him of pandering to Jewish audiences. Apparently when opportunity knocked he changed his mind about his new boss. Pre-government in 2014, Lightstone founded and headed Silent City, a Jewish advocacy group supported by extreme right-wing money that opposed the Iran nuclear agreement and also worked to combat the nonviolent Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. He is reportedly still connected financially with anti BDS groups, which might be construed as a conflict of interest. As the Senior Adviser to Friedman he is paid in excess of $200,000 plus free housing, additional cash benefits to include a 25% cost of living allowance and a 10% hardship differential, medical insurance and eligibility for a pension.

So, what’s in it all for Joe and Jill American Citizens? Not much. And for Israel? Anything, it wants, apparently. Sink a U.S. warship? Okay. Tap the U.S. Treasury? Sure, just wait a minute and we’ll draft some legislation that will give you even more money. Create a treasury department agency run exclusively by Jews that operates secretly to punish critics of the Jewish state? No brainer. Meanwhile a bunch of dudes at the Pentagon are dreaming of new wars for Israel and the White House sends an ignorant ambassador and top aide overseas to represent the interests of the foreign government in the country where they are posted. Which just happens to be Israel. Will it ever end?

There is a network of families across europe that some authors believe came into europe when the romans destroyed the temple in jerusalem in 70AD. Those families were fleeing the approaching roman army and travelled by boat to various jewish trading posts around the mediterenean sea including marseilles in the south of france

Over the ensuing centuries they were through their contacts in the merchant class able to intermarry with frankish aristocracy. What kept them united as a coherent network was their adherence to the old QABALISTIC ceremonial magic which they maintained through secret societies. They entered britain in the armies of william the conqueror and within a short space of time 3 royals were assassinated in the new forest.

A series of assassinations in scotland some time later saw them get their candidate on the throne of scotland in the form of robert the bruce

They formed the knights templar in order to return to jerusalem to dig into temple mount to seek the scrolls they knew had been left there by their ancestors before they fled the approaching romans

They rose through the aristocratic ranks and became royalty around europe and founded FREEMASONRY in order to continue their qabalistic ceremonial magic and to provide a platform through which to expand their network and influence in order to gain and maintain a global reach

They built the 'british empire' and they created the state of israel. Every time they came into contact with an indigienous people they stole the title to their land and culturally and physically genocided them including the people of britain in particular the gaels

That network is what controls britain, israel and the US today and they are black magicians bent on world domination. Saville was a black magician born on halloween as the seventh son of a seventh son and david says he procured children for the satanic network and his work on childrens TV through the BBC certainly gave him ready access to children

That network controls the BBC and funded fabian socialism. It sought a war against iraq and that's why they murdered the weapons inspector Dr David Kelly who was trying to warn the british public that they were being lied to about there supposedly being weapons of mass destruction in iraq which just like the false claims that assad had gassed his own people were simply a pretext for further imperialist expansion

They are set on building another temple to solomon on temple mount which is why there is constant agitation in that area

They are controlling many of the hitech companies and are smuggling tech from silicon valley to israel, under the talpiot programme, where work is being done on AI, virtual reality, surveillance tech and a host of other tech which will all feed into the technocracy that is growing up around us while people fixate on megan markles wedding dress
‘End of days’: Birth of red heifer in Israel may signal coming of Messiah, Hebrew scholars say
Published time: 10 Sep, 2018 17:22
Edited time: 11 Sep, 2018 05:43

Rabbinical scholars are treating the birth of an entirely red heifer in Israel as a potential omen for the rebuilding of the Third Temple. Evangelical Christians, citing Biblical prophecy, believe it means the end of days is nigh.

If proven to be the cow of prophecy, the young calf will be the first true red heifer born in 2,000 years, an event that is meant to foreshadow the construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem, heralding the arrival of the Jewish Messiah. Evangelical Christian theologians also believe the construction of the Third Temple will lead to Judgement Day.

Conflating Anti-Zionism with Anti-Semitism a Dangerous and Useful Ploy for Zionists

“Having grown up in Jerusalem I can recall how each year on particular days, including the Israeli Day of Independence, there would be processions at the Ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods where the Israeli flag would be burned.”
by Miko Peled
September 13th, 2018

JERUSALEM — (Analysis) According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, anti-Semitism is defined as “hostility toward or discrimination against Jews as a religious, ethnic, or racial group.” This is also how anti-Semitism is understood by people in general. However, the state of Israel and Zionist organizations around the world do not want the term to be defined as only racism against Jewish people but also to include criticism and rejection of Zionism.


Jewish rejection of Zionism

The Zionist movement had no concern for God or Jewish law because the Zionist leaders were secular and their vision was to create a secular state. They claimed that Jews were a nation just like any other, even though clearly that is not the case. Jews in Yemen, in Iraq, in Poland or in the Holy Land itself had and continue to have their own distinct customs, clothing, culture and language. The only common thing that Jewish people around the world possess is their religion. This is true even today, when many Jewish people see themselves as secular. Jews in America have a distinct culture that is different from that of Jews in France or Iran or in occupied Palestine.

The Zionists secularized the Old Testament, treating it as though it was a historical document, which it very clearly is not; and, finally, the Zionists claimed that Palestine is the Land of Israel and that it is the land of the Jewish people and therefore they have a right to take it, even by force. They invented and spread the motto, “A Land without a People for a People without a Land,” even though clearly there were people on the land, the Palestinian Arabs. These people, in the eyes of Western colonizers, being non-European and not white, were just insignificant and invisible.
