The Z Factor VIII: Chabad Lubavitch (1)

By M.K. Styllinski

“A Jew was not created as a means for some other purpose; he himself IS the purpose, since the substance of all divine emanations was created ONLY to serve the Jews.”

 – Chabad Lubavitch leader, “The Great Rebbe” Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson; Israel Shahak and Norton Mezvinsky. (1999). Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel. Pluto Press, p.B8-62)


From the Russian-Jewish Mafiya to the messianic sect of Chabad Lubavitch. Virtually ignored in the MSM, it has been busy undermining mainstream Judaism while exerting a powerful hold on key positions of international power.

Chabad is a branch of Hasidic Judasim espousing a supremacist and authoritarian ideology ostensibly supported by Christian Zionists and Christian Evangelists alike. It has been able to gain access to presidential offices in America and Israel, along with a very close relationship to the Russian President Vladmir Putin. But Chabad Lubavitch’s greatest influence is undoubtedly in the United States. According to author Sue Fishkoff: “It’s not enough that Chabad’s man in D.C. knows the name and phone number of just about every congressman, senator and foreign ambassador in the nation’s capital — he also knows their legislative assistants, their secretaries and the people who clean their offices.” [1]

Chabad Lubavitch: a Jewish cult aligning itself to Hassidism and influential in American politics, Zio-Conservativism in particular. It is the largest Jewish religious organisation in the world.

The sect originated in the 18th Century between three Slavic States – Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Chabad, is an acronym for three words in Hebrew: “Chochma, Binah and Daas,” meaning “wisdom, understanding and knowledge.” Chabad describes the movement and Lubavitch is the name of the town in Ukraine where the movement was based during the nineteenth century and now part of the Smolensk region of Russia. Lubavitchers are a branch of the Hasidic Jews who draw their beliefs from the mystical side of Judaism: the Talmud, the Zohar (both seen as the foundation to Kabbalah) and finally the Tanya (or “Hatanya”) written by the founder of the Chabad Lubavitch, Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, apparently in response to criticism of the new Hasidic movement for its “obscurantism and superstition.” [2] Though Chabad Lubavitch can definitely be called a sect or a cult from the way it conducts its political and doctrinal affairs, much of its teachings are drawn from mainstream Judaism.

Since the 1940s, the headquarters of the Chabad-Lubavitch have been located in Brooklyn, New York. From the 1950s -1990s the sect was led by the Seventh, or last Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Until his death in 1994, this latter “Great Rebbe,’  managed to create a Chabad presence in more than 900 cities world wide. The title of Lubavitcher “Rebbe” is handed down to successive leaders, organised on clan principles and the only movement to do so within Judaism. There is no religion where religious fanaticism is more applicable, but it is not Hassidism per se. Orthodox Judaism is made up of many different hues of Hasidic tribes all of which take exception to Chabad Lubavitch followers or conversely, are to some degree, aligned to its principles. This is where many who think critical attention to Chabadniks is also being directed to Hassidism in general which is not necessarily so. But Chabadniks are quite content to identify themselves with Hassidism and Judaism, much to the chagrin of those involved. [3]

The Jerusalem Post in October 19, 2001, gave a summary of Chabad Lubavitch as:

“a potent force: 2,600 institutions around the world, large numbers of English-speaking rabbis, control of most of Judaism in Italy as well as the chief rabbinate of Russia (its Russia budget alone is $20 million a year). It is an organization with immense world-wide financial resources . . . In fact, Chabad is a movement of monumental importance. Observant Jews are profoundly dependent on its emissaries all over the world … its rabbis dominate or are poised to dominate Jewish communities in a startling number of countries.” [4]

There are still many Rabbis who believe that Schneerson is not dead and will be resurrected for a coronation as the long awaited Messiah. He is seen as a demi-God, perfect in every way and to say otherwise is not recommended. There are others within Chabad who do not share the same view, and according to one recent report, this has frequently led to “violent brawls breaking out and spilling on the streets on a regular basis leading to scores of hospitalizations and arrests.” One Jewish journalist observed in response to the deification and idolatory of Schneerson: “Chabad members have become irrecovably fixated on their dead leader. If the seemingly inexorable rise of the vocal yellow pin brigade progresses apace, the movement founded to bring rigor and intellectualism to Hasidic Judaism may well face a benighted future.” [5]

However, it seems a little more serious, as its objectives may encompass more than just the Jewish people.

Very similar to the Dominionists, the aim of the Chabadniks (or Lubavitchers) is to fulfil their destiny as they see it, by helping to mold and manipulate world events in line with Biblical “End Time” prophecies which involves the second coming of the Messiah, a prerequisite of which is a final conflagration from which those suitably pure and distinctly Jewish will be saved, while the rest of us perish. Rising out of the chaos will be a New World Jewish Order fixed in place with ultra-orthodox Jewish laws. Crazy it may sound but very much grounded in fact.

By 2007, Chabad-Lubavitch Centres had multiplied across the globe with 278 new emissaries moved out to Jewish communities in that year alone. There were 20 Chabad Houses in the states of California and Florida and 17 new campus-based centers in Europe, the Americas and the Middle East. Several centres were also recently opened in France, Mexico and Argentina. [6]

Ukrainian Jewish community leader, activist and author Baron Eduard Hodos has traced the early influence of Chabad Lubavitch. He  has highlighted the period of movement leadership by the Sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe Joseph Isaac Schneerson and his run-in with Joseph Stalin, who: “… at one time had studied in Tiflis Theological Seminary and [was] versed in the issues of religion, expelled Chabad from the USSR as a fascist cult despite the fact that traditional Judaism continued to exist in Soviet territory.” [7]

9780300115314Up to the start of World War II a curious operation to spirit away the Sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe from Poland took place.  He was taken from Warsaw, across Third Reich territory to neutral Holland and finally to the United States. This mysterious event occurred: “As a result of an agreement between the U.S. Department of State and the head of German military intelligence (Abwehr), Admiral Canaris Yosef Yitzchak.

The operation to transport the Sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe from occupied Poland was supervised by the Colonel of Abwehr, whose father was a Jew, Ernst Bloch.” [8] It is an intriguing tale and best told by historian Bryan Mark Rigg in his book: Rescued from the Reich: How One of Hitler’s Soldiers Saved the Lubavitcher Rebbe (2006). Rigg meticulously outlines causes that led to:  “… the instigation of American Lubavitchers and some sympathetic officials in FDR’s administration, highly placed German military men—including Helmut Wohlthat, an anti-Semitic aide to Göring who felt saving the rebbe would be a good public relations move, and Maj. Ernst Bloch, who had a Jewish father—conspired to spirit the ailing rebbe from Warsaw to Riga, and then Stockholm, where he sailed for New York.” [9]

This research gives further evidence of the doctrinal influence that not only explains the Judeo-fascism present in the Chabad sect but the fallout that required a sacrifice of ordinary Jews so that their spiritual and nationalistic objectives could materialise. It seems the “Messiah” Rabbi Menachem Schneerson had philosophically and spiritually squared his conscience on the subject of the holocaust having seen it as a necessary sacrifice for a grander collective destiny. It is here that the Zionists merge with Lubavitch designs in that they were quite willing to sacrifice ordinary Jews to the Nazis in return for their State of Israel. (See Ben Hecht’s Perfidy for a detailed explanation as well as Lenni Brenner’s: 51 Documents: Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis, a synopsis of which is available at Counterpunch).

The Tanya is the mystical “Bible” of Chabad Hasidic philosophy, the ideological concepts of which were given a thorough airing via the pen of Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of Chabad Hasidism, first published in 1797 in the thick of revolutionary and masonic resurgence. It had enormous influence on successive “Rebbes” of Chabad Lubavitch but remained highly controversial to those willing to look objectively at its contents. Eduard Hodos who has been sounding the alarm on the sect for many decades calls The Tanya “the second ‘Mein Kampf.’” *

In his book Jewish Hurricane (2007) the rabbi is unequivocal, equating the Lubavtich concepts to a form of Judeo-Nazism. He states: “According to Chabad canon, developed by Shneur Zalman, God created the world solely for the Jews; Jews possess Divine soul, the goyim (gentiles) have the soul of a lowest order – animal soul; Jews are the only ones to whom we can apply the concept of Man. The other nations of the world are compared to vomiting and filth. … Tanya is the main subject of study in Chabad schools on a par with the Torah and Talmud.” [10]

Hodos, along with many others, is convinced that a Judeo-fascism is expressing itself in virulent form through Chabad Lubavitch having effectively taken over Ukrainian and elements of Russian politics after a long process of infiltration within Judaism, eventually incorporating and merging with the Russian-Zionist mafia. The Rabbi explains that “the clearly defined goal” and long-term objective: “… was to entice and make Jewish-Russian hybrids employed in the structures of real power ardent followers of Chabad, vigorously supporting their careers and promotion. In this regard Chabad were ready to sacrifice their ideological dogmas and turn a blind eye to the lack of purity of blood. In contrast, to non-Jews the issue was simple–money [bribes].”  He further mentions: “Taking into account that from the time of opening of [Russia’s] borders, the Russian society did not have a currency while members of the “Committee of 300” held substantial foreign funds which Chabad used to purchase Russian real estate. [11]

Hodos explained that during the reign of Menachem Mendel Schneerson and the period of Gorbachev’s perestroika Chabad Lubavictch was able to expand into Russia care of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster (which is known amongst top Chabadniks as the “Chernobyl miracle”) gradually insinuating itself into the “… vast majority of Jewish religious and financial structures”allowing the sect to become: “… a major force in the Jewish movement of the 20th and 21st Centuries.” [12]

In a recent interview from an online magazine Hodos opined that the power of Chabad Lubavitch cannot be overstated: “Over the past decade, the influence of Chabad cultists in the world has not only grown but also entrenched. This is the only Jewish religious sect, which, assuming the role of leader of world Jewry, climbed into world politics. Its presence greatly affected American politics. In addition, the heads of state of the former Soviet Union are listening to Chabad.” [13]

Although ostensibly opposed to Zionism theologically, they necessarily have parallel goals. Their members in the US political establishment and/or supporters past and present include: Alan Dershowitz a celebrity lawyer and academic (and well-known nemesis of Norman Finkelstein) US senators Joe Lieberman and John McCain; Sen. Carl Levin who is Chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee; one-time Homeland Security Director and civil liberties eradicator Michael Chertoff; former Bush Press Secretary Ari Fleischer; [14] Rahm Emanuel Senior Clinton/Obama advisor; Stuart Eizenstat, former Deputy Treasury Secretary; General Michael Mukasey; Paul Wolfowitz, PNAC document author and one of the architects of the Iraq War and lastly, another PNAC co-author, dual-nationality Rabbi Dov Zakheim.

The latter individual is an important presence in the Zionist fifth column of the United States. He was the appointed Undersecretary of Defence and Comptroller from 2001 to 2004 under the George W. Bush administration and famously linked to the Pentagon’s missing $2.6 trillion announced by Donald Rumsfeld on 10th September, 2001 conveniently lost in the chaos of 9/11 the following day. And of course, the specific section of the Pentagon that was destroyed contained the year’s budgetary information, along with the accountants, book-keepers and budget analysts, many of whom died. (We’ll have much more on Zakheim’s influence in  future posts). [15]

Senator John McCain, as well as paying homage to Chabad leaders and their open pockets, also has Russian Mafiya connections via his campaign manager, Rick Davis, and Ukrainian billionaire Oleg Deripaska, long since recognised by the FBI as having ties to organized Russian crime and paying US politicians for political favours. [16] It may go some way to explain why he and his erstwhile colleague Joe Liberman are so vociferously against the Russian government of Vladimir Putin, though in recent years Putin too has been walking a tightrope between the needs of Russia and the demands  of Judaism and its sects. Hodos believes the struggle between the Russian Oligarchs and Putin’s government is actually a struggle between Judaism and Chabad Lubavitch. The Putin-led fight between oligarchical Jews like the late Boris Berezovsky, Vladimir Gusinsky and Mihaly Khodorkovsky was not based on anti-Semitism or political motives but the “… struggle of Chabad with Jewish capital” with Putin as: “merely a tool in the fight.” He further believes: “Putin is protected from such charges [of anti-Semitism], after which the carrier ends.” [17]

Vladimir Putin has an almost impossible struggle on his hands to balance forces of extremism emerging in Russia spear-headed by Mossad and Chabad mafia. At the same time, he must field US-NATO's bid to embroil him in a new Cold War via the destabilisation of Ukraine.

Chief Rabbi and head of Chabad Lubavitch in Russia is Berel Lazar who took over from the late Adolfa Szajewicza with the Kremlin intervening in to make sure Lazar won the election. In response Lazar gushed: “Never before has any Russian or Soviet leader done so much for Jews, as Vladimir Putin. In every respect it is unprecedented. In talks with me Ariel Sharon repeatedly emphasized that the Kremlin is the greatest friend of Jews and of Israel. Now, many mayors of Russian cities, provincial heads and ministers are Jewish. This became the norm …” [18] Indeed, according to a report from the Jerusalem Post Lazar is “… essentially a Kremlin appointee who has been made to neutralize the more outspoken and politically active leaders of rival Jewish organizations.” [19] As a result, the nucleus of the Putin government comprises a significant number of Hasidic Jews and followers of Chabad. In September 2005, Lazar became a member of the Public Chamber of Russia and remains a key player in mafia led politics.

This will begin to make sense when we recall Putin’s recent turnaround from being Iran’s supporter to partial detractor after meeting with Israel’s Prime Minister and Chabad devotee Benjamin Netanyahu. Though Putin said that “…in his opinion the spread of democracy in the Middle East should be allowed to go ahead without outside influence” Netanyahu described Russia and Israel as “on the same page” over the “Iran threat” with Putin adding “Jerusalem and Moscow share “friendly ties.” [20]

We will have to see if Putin remains his own man…

Netanyahu and Russian oligarch and reputed Russian Mafiya don, Arcadi Gaydamak were busy making preparations in early 2000’s to take on the helmsman ship of Israel along with Israeli fascist Avigdor Lieberman and his Yisrael Beitenu party. The latter has mafia connections and is a strong Netanyahu supporter. It is likely he will win the post of Prime-Minister very soon and with such a complex set of influences including Zionism, Chabad and the Russian Mafia all of whom are predicated on the idealism of a “Greater Israel” and the destruction of those not in alignment with such fascist principles.

benjamin-Netanyahu

Benjamin Netanyahu

Both the Netanyahu and George W. Bush puppets with their shared values of Likud and Neo-Conservative expansionism have been frequent sycophants at Lubavitch fundraising and ritual celebrations in and around Whitehouse circles. In 2002, Netanyahu gave “an eloquent speech to some 600 friends of Chabad of the Marina at The Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel…” and after extolling the virtues of Israeli oppression of Palestinians he reminded the suited rabbis in their opulent surroundings that he was honoured to be at an event that was “dedicated to the deeds and teachings of Rabbi Menachem. M. Schneerson,” the Great Rebbe of Chabad Lubavitch supporters. [21]
Meanwhile, later in the year Bush Jr. was busy doing his part by hosting: “… a delegation of 10 leading rabbis and officials from the Lubavitch Hasidic movement at the White House…” to venerate and “…mark the 100th birthday of the late Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson..” another stalwart defender and proselytiser of the Lubavitch messianic faith while adding “…his signature to a document declaring the late Rebbe’s birthday ‘The day of education and charity.’” [22]

These displays of mutual adoration and moist-eyed reverence would all be very touching if the background to such unfettered access to political insiders was a result of genuine humanitarian concerns. Unfortunately, the reverse is true. “If the rising alliance takes power in the next election, it could push Israel toward military confrontations with Iran, Syria or Hezbollah, while extinguishing any remaining flickers of hope in Israel’s peace camp regarding the Palestinians.” [23]  This is what we are facing should Netanyahu be successful.

The ignorance surrounding the presence of Chabad Lubavitch in high-level politics, its dominance within the Jewish Diaspora and the courting of Jewish/Zionist elites should be deeply disturbing to both Jew and gentile alike.

It seems everyone is being gently lowered into a simmering extremist soup …

 


* Edward Hodos doesn’t mince his words when he talks of Chabad leaders and their activities. From The Jewish Syndrome (2002) he states: “Chabad is now the head ‘roof’ organization which built the extensive network of countless Jewish formations and patronising their activities. Today, Chabad nests are scattered throughout the territory of the former USSR. The largest and strategically important are located in Ukraine and Russia. But, if in Russia the Chabad capital is, of course, Moscow, its capital in the Ukraine is Dnepropetrovsk – hometown of Seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson. At this time, Chabad-Lubavitch movement has an unprecedented influence for a small ultra-Orthodox sect that has an impact not only on the microclimate in the countries of their ground-bases, but on global political and economic situation. The activities of the sect are very conspiratorial, at the same time hypocritically parading and showing off exceptional piety, religious tolerance and humility.

Unlike other members of Orthodox Judaism, Chabad cultists do not simply recognize Jesus, but express a vicious hatred. Chabad considers Christian Orthodoxy and its representatives its worst enemy. […] Chabad cultists actively oppose the process of assimilation of Jews and are fanatical fighters for the purity of blood. The main principle of fascist ideology of the sect is the following: Jews are above all, and Chabad is higher than the Jews.”

** For clarification on the strategy of Vladimir Putin as he deals with the “AngloZionist” attacks on Russia it may well be a case of keeping one’s enemies close so in order to contain them, as far as is possible. The Saker’s take on this can be found in his 2014 article: The Russian Response to a Double Declaration of WarPutin is fully aware that Russian-Jewish oligarchs and CIA-backed Nationalists are intent on serving The Greater Israel project for the Middle East. Russia is a long time enemy of Zionism.

Fishkoff claims that her book is not about Chabad Lubavitch’s political involvement but of the culture and the “shlichim,” the young Luvavitch couples who act as Jewish missionaries with a view to setting up “Chabad Houses.” This book is largely irrelevant regarding an understanding of the core power structure and thus acts as a propaganda buffer highlighting the truth of “acts of kindness” within the sect as if this is the driving force of the upper hierarchy of Chabad Lubavitch as a whole, which of course it is not. With any organization that is ponerized such niceities are merely incidental to the cause.

The Z Factor VII: MAFIYA (2)

“The unique situation in the former USSR, and the fact that Jews predominated in the Soviet bureaucracy, provides another link in the rise of the mafia. Jews predominated in the earlier and more primitive black market in Russia, and thus these groups were physically more ready to take advantage of the crisis in Russia beginning in the mid-1980s. Jewish organized crime, connected to both the KGB and Mossad, automatically had the skids greased to remain off the radar screen for allied intelligence agencies.”

— Dr. M. Raphael Johnson PhD.

It is always difficult to approach subjects regarding Jewish and Zionist activities without being accused of anti-Semitism, most usually by academics and mainstream journalists who are desperate to maintain their careers. But in order to explore dispassionately any influences which become detrimental to the whole, no subject can be ignored. Yet, the buffers surrounding Israel politics and Jewish discourse are substantial creating an almost impassable hysteria that prevents any constructive criticism.

One point of contention which is obvious to anyone who has perused cultural history and politics is the fact that Jewish presence in the US is so closely aligned to the media, Hollywood and most notably, the pornography industry.Not a problem in itself – unless of course Zionism begins to overshadow it. And since 80 per cent of digital crime may now originate in some form of organised activity it is highly probable that that organised crime – thus an already present Russian-Jewish dominance –  is extended into the digital and internet domain. This is resulting in the creation of online pornography empires and their links between escort sites and human trafficking and organised crime.[1]

As we have briefly explored the nature of the MOSSAD, the sayanim network and the ruthless nature of Zionism as a political movement, then it become logical that centres of organised crime and affiliated domains would be targeted. Or, as Nathan Abrams explains in The Jewish Quarterly:

“… there’s no getting away from the fact that secular Jews have played (and still continue to play) a disproportionate role throughout the adult film industry in America. Jewish involvement in pornography has a long history in the United States, as Jews have helped to transform a fringe subculture into what has become a primary constituent of Americana. These are the ‘true blue Jews’. […] Though Jews make up only two per cent of the American population, they have been prominent in pornography. Many erotica dealers in the book trade between 1890 and 1940 were immigrant Jews of German origin.” [2]

You can read just how far Jewish culture has dominated pornography by reading the full article HERE

As Abrams mentions in his essay, it is the self-confidence, intelligence, adaptability and “Chutzpah” that made the pornography industry an obvious choice to make huge profits as well an undercurrent of “atavistic hatred of Christian authority.” Quoted in Abram’s essay is ADL’s National Director and holocaust survivor Abraham H. Foxman who commented: ‘Those Jews who enter the pornography industry have done so as individuals pursuing the American dream.’”  Which is why we must question the genesis of that dream and by how much such adaptability and geopolitical opportunism has gained ground within the context of organised crime.

The B’nai B’rith’s powerful Anti-Deformation League (ADL) is one of the most well-known Jewish organisations that benefit directly from such largesse, acting as a key channel in providing finance to Russian-Jewish Mafia’s entry into American society. Consequently, the ADL was instrumental in persuading the FBI to call off investigations saying that it would “foster anti-Semitism” and prejudice Americans against genuine “Soviet-refugees.” [3] Successfully masquerading as a civil rights body countering anti-Semitic attacks, it is, in reality, a front for MOSSAD and the Zionist apparatus within America; the Russian-Jewish mafia, inescapably inside its inner workings. Even a former ADL General Counsel, Arnold Forster admitted “… that he was often a ‘source’ for the Mossad Israel’s CIA.” [4]

***

As the Russian economy collapsed so the black market provided support based on “brotherhoods” within the gulag system which were then transferred to the mainstream markets. This impenetrable and highly secretive network was ready to extend its reach far beyond Mother Russia:

Sen. Henry “Scoop” Jackson’s famous bill, the Jackson-Vanick law, linked Soviet trade privileges to the treatment of Soviet Jews. It was a bill lobbied heavily for by American Jewish organizations. And while non-Jews could not emigrate from Russia, Jews could. Quickly, the KGB took this opportunity to dump its hardcore criminals into the United States, many who were Jewish, as conservatives cheered, believing, naively as usual,to have scored a major victory against the USSR. Much of the Jewish mafia’s penetration into the United States came as a result of these Soviet “boatlifts,” which were partially financed by groups such as the ADL or the Hebrew Aid Society. [5]

As we have seen, the roots of Jewish organized crime go back to Tsarist times and beyond with a monopoly on slave trade and usury. Zionist crime syndicates gave Lenin a helping hand securing financial wherewithal from bank robberies and extortion rackets. Bolshevik ideologues and Jewish organised crime syndicates were often joined at the hip since their intimidation methods were essentially the same.

Under Leonid Brezhnev in the 1970s, the Russian economy was effectively driven by the black market, and it was to be an easy transition for the Russian-Jewish mafia to capitalize on the death throes of an aging political and ideological dinosaur. As we are seeing in the United States, the fact that the economic infrastructure did not totally collapse in 2008 is partly due to this underworld crutch that fuses with the global financial architecture. Like Russia, it too will collapse from a variety of domestic and international factors, but unlike Russia, it does not have a strong state infrastructure to regain its place in the world. When the collapse comes, is likely to take an inordinately long period of time to recover.

The links between Israel, America and the Russian mafia go further. Apart from the historical ties between Russian and Israeli Jews there are other more disturbing reasons for the rapid international growth. In the 1970s, under pressure from Zionists within Washington the Soviet Union granted permission for Jews to emigrate. According to Friedman’s research the Communist leaders “… took this opportunity to empty its jails of thousands of hard-core criminals, dumping vast numbers of undesirables … on an unsuspecting America, as well as on Israel and other Western nations.” [6]

While thousands of legitimate Russian-Jewish immigrants entered the United States many were rapists, murderers and ex-mafia henchmen who had been jailed along with communists after the breakdown of the Soviet Union. No questions were asked. These and other criminals established their bases in Brooklyn, Miami and later Los Angeles. By now, their influence extends across the United States with a clearinghouse in New York where blackmail, extortion, money-laundering, human, sex and drug trafficking are organised.

Laura Radanko, who is also Jewish, has built on Friedman’s research on the Russian-Jewish mafia. Regarding the emigration of Soviet Jews under Leonid Brezhnev in the 1970s she also confirms that: “… thousands of hard-core criminals, many of them released from Soviet Gulags by the KGB, took advantage of their nominal Jewish status to swarm into the United States.” Furthermore: “In the 1970s, more than forty thousand Russian Jews settled in Brighton Beach. It was under the shadow of the elevated subway tracks on Brighton Beach Avenue, bustling with Russian meat markets, vegetable pushcarts, and bakeries, that the Russian gangsters resumed their careers as professional killers, thieves, and scoundrels…”

What is curious is that the FBI did not set up a dedicated task force until 1994 underscoring the fact that federal authorities in general have been remarkably slow to react to this mafia invasion. It seems were it not for their “own sluggishness in addressing the problem, the Russian mob in the United States would never have become as powerful as it is today.” Friedman states according to an FBI spokesman, that despite there being some five thousand “hard-core Russian criminals” in the New York region [as of 2000] “The Russian Mafia has the lowest priority on the criminal pecking order.” [7]

Such a cozy relationship with American and European intelligence and a virtual immunity from prosecution it is little wonder they have rocketed to the top of the organised crime league tables.

The Albanian gangs working in concert with the Cosa Nostra – the Sicilian mafia; the Chinese “Snake-heads,” and the high society connections of the Japanese Yakuza all play a significant part in the management, organisation and profits of the underworld economy. However, the Russian Godfathers still control 70 per cent of the Russian economy, with operations in up to 50 countries including Macau, China, illegal drug and car theft trafficking in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, money laundering in Cyprus, Israel, Belgium and England, trafficking in nuclear materials and prostitution in Germany. In Freidman’s words: “Italian organized crime in America is a pimple on a horse’s ass compared with Russian organized crime in America—and globally,” [The Russian Mafia]….have something no crime group in the world has. They have their own state to work from, in fact, a former superpower.” [8]

They also continue to run their global operations out of Israel with comparatively very little interference from the authorities. Estimates from Israeli analysts place the investment of the Russian-Jewish bosses in the Israeli economy at about $20 billion since the late 1970s. This explains why Israeli law enforcement remains apathetic in the face of such financial dividends and by extension, may even encourage mafia influence within its borders. [9]

Jewish investment in the weapons industry and global arms trade allows Israel to covertly support many so called “terrorist” groups such as Al-Qaeda, Colombian FARC, Kosovo’s KLA, and Islamic Jihadist groups of many denominations, all of which serve to accrue huge profits while serving ideological objectives for a “Greater Israel.” With financial dependency there is always control, hence the tradition of usury and banking where successive Israeli governments and their agencies can act in favour of their geo-political interests without recourse to official policy.

Since media outlets are largely controlled by the Zionist Establishment and thus the MOSSAD it is unsurprising that the public rarely hears a word about Russian-Jewish oligarchs such as Ukrainian and Soviet Jewish immigrant Marat Balagula who ran businesses in Brighton Beach named “The Odessa” a notorious hub for Russian Jewish workers assisting him in the running of prostitution, drugs trafficking, tax evasion schemes and petroleum distribution rackets.

Robert I. Friedman mentions a former associate who saw Balagula as a man who “had a heart” though the overall consensus is that this a rather scary character, like most criminal psychopaths:

“Marat was the king of Brighton Beach. He had a Robin Hood complex. People would come over from Russia and he’d give them jobs. He liked professional men. Guys came over and couldn’t practice medicine or use their engineering degrees. He sought them out. He was fascinated with intellectuals. He co-opted them. He put them into the gasoline business, he put them into car washes or taxi companies. He’d reinvest his own money in their business if they were having trouble.”

He was released from prison in 2004 after serving various convictions for gasoline bootlegging and credit card fraud. He obviously didn’t quite have the clout of one Semion Mogilevich, described by Friedman as “the world’s most dangerous man.”  A Jewish Ukrainian now based in Hungary, he is widely known to be the head of the Russian Mafia groups having particular input in arms dealing from his hungarian base and human trafficking and prostitution rackets in Israel.

According to Wikileaks, Mogilevich has been connected with corporations that include RosUkrEnergo, Raiffeisen Bank, and Russia’s state energy company Gazprom. Mogilevich was said to be a long term arms supplier for the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) famous for its atrocious human rights record. [10] The Mafia conduits for such activities serve as the middle-men between banks that are well-known for laundering money. Russian-Jewish oligarchs who are embedded in, or have substantial ties in the Russian Mafia itself can thus grease the wheels at either end of the legitimate and non-legitimate spectrum of business interests. The inability of NGO’s, governments and international organizations to regulate global arms imports and exports is allowing a bonanza for so-called legal and illicit arms sales of the type mentioned above. In fact, turning a blind eye is a necessary corruption that allows all concerned to prosper. Except of course, for civilians and civic society in general who remain squeezed between the state and criminal psychopath.

An Amnesty International report states that Israel is a dominant player in the international arms market, with “two thirds of its weapons production going to export” and topping the list of the 100 leading arms companies in the world. Israel’s four companies are: Elbit, RAFAEL, IMI (Israel Military Industries), and IAI (Israel Aircraft Industries). The report mentioned sales of weaponry from the United States to Israel, “… which … uses these arms in its military actions in the Palestinian territories, resulting in the death and injury of thousands, all in violation of the international humanitarian law.” Reference is also made to the selling of the US made Apache attack helicopters which included “… sub-systems manufactured by companies in Britain, Holland, and Ireland, which under the European Union regulations should not have allowed the direct sales of these arms systems to Israel.” [11]

For such a tiny country still embroiled in debate about the legitimacy of its historical existence, it seems to have a wildly disproportionate role in arms trafficking and official sales if we forget that it remains the seat of operations for the Russian-Zionist mafia. Contemporary Russia is all but controlled by the Mafia with frequent power struggles between government and the oligarchs. When extreme capitalism enmeshed with organised crime creates disorder there are opportunities for all. Analysts believe that seven Russian-Jewish business men in Russia “…control virtually half of the companies whose shares are rated the highest at the national stock market.” [12] In the last twenty years, the so-called “Big Seven” were: Rem Vyakhirev (Gazprom), Boris Berezovsky (Logovaz), Vladimir Gusinsky (Most Bank), Vaghit Alekperov (Lukoil), Alexander Smolensky (Stolichnyy Bank), Mikhail Khodorkovsky (Rosprom /Yukos Oil), Andrey Kazmin (Sberbank) with Roman Abramovich and Oleg Deripaska gaining significant ground at the turn of the millennium.

The power of oligarchs diminished significantly after Vladimir Putin became president, with many coming under fire for various illegal activities, most notably tax evasion from businesses they acquired. However, it is widely speculated and believed that the charges were also politically motivated, the tycoons having fallen out of favour with the Kremlin. Vladimir Gusinsky (MediaMost) and the late Boris Berezovsky both escaped penalties and possible imprisonment by leaving of Russia, while the most prominent, Mikhail Khodorkovsky (Yukos oil), was arrested in October 2003, and sentenced to 9 years, which was subsequently extended to 14.

Then there are the “recognized” gangsters tracked by the U.S. government which include: Monya Elson, Evsei Agron, Emile Puzyretsky, the Nayfeld brothers, the aforementioned Marat Balagula and Semion Mogilevich, the Zilber brothers and Vyacheslav Ivankov.

In April 2005 the Russian-Jewish Media mogul Vladimir Gusinsky was implicated in a money laundering scam after the arrest of 25 staff at Hapoalim, in Tel Aviv, Israel’s biggest commercial bank. Gusinsky reportedly owns 27 per cent of Maariv (or Ma’ariv) Holdings, a big Israeli newspaper publisher. According to the Wall Street Journal Arnon Perlman, spokesman for former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, was vice chairman of Maariv Holdings. The New York Times quotes Jonathan Nitzan, associate professor at York University: “Many politicians there [Israel] are financed by organized crime, and Israeli politics has been penetrated very deeply by Russian money…” [13]

Indeed, the Russian mafia has taken advantage of Israel’s liberal immigration and banking secrecy laws to join the money laudering operations using immigrants as couriers or fronts. South Americans, Israelis and international diamond dealers are believed to have long used Israel as a money-laundering safe haven. The Israeli banking system offers limitless possibilities for recycling dirty money. Israeli banks have off-shore branches and firms in Europe, the Caribbean, the United States, Canada and Southeast Asia, effectively guaranteeing anonymity for deposits in hard currency, free circulation of funds throughout the world, and the possibility of converting them into gold.

It was only in 2002 that Israel passed some fragile money-laundering laws and was taken off an international register of nations blacklisted for extensive involvement in money laundering operations. $2.5 billion to $4 billion of laundered money has been funnelled through Israel after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Israeli police sources cited in one recent press report quoted an estimate of “… $5 billion of Israel’s $17 billion in foreign exchange reserves may be attributed to money belonging to Russian organized crime.” [14]The Cocaine Triangle being a classic example, where underworld networking with Colombian drug barons funnel the money, ($8 billion in 2011) the Israelis launder it and the Russians provide the security and the muscle. [15]

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union the exporting of Capitalism has been taken up by the Russian underworld in particularly ruthless fashion. Corruption, which was always a factor in the Communist State is now completely out of control. Some estimates range from 3,000 to 5,000 organized crime gangs within Russia which outnumber the size and scope of Organizatsiya syndicates. Stalin even took advantage of the “Organizatsiya” (The Organisation) for subduing his own population until he realised that they were cast from the same mold and thus rather difficult to control. Due to the endemic nature of crime networks the vast financial resources from armaments sales were plundered and sold to the highest bidder. Even the substantial reserves of Gold bouillion had all but vanished from Russian vaults by September 1991.

As writer David Guyatt outlines, this was all part of a policy of asset stripping:

“Gradually it became clear that the massive quantities of exported Roubles weren’t just coloured paper. Almost worthless on the international market they were repatriated through some of the 260 Mafia controlled banks that sprung-up around the country. Having gone full cycle from export through to repatriation, the laundered Roubles, now viewed as inward “investment”, were used to capitalise and finance the explosion of crooked Joint Venture companies that had mushroomed in the meantime. There followed a massive spending spree that continues to this day.” [16]

The sheer scale and speed of this mafia control is only understandable when the corruption of the Communist regime and the Bolshevik roots of this crime wave is seen for what it is: an unbroken succession of generational ties which broke like a damn in the wake of Glasnost and Perestroika and flowed into every domain of Russian business and government.

As is ever the case, women and children are still bearing the brunt of money laundering and the massive inflow and outflow of cash from narcotics and weapon sales which are used to further expand the industry in the sex trade. Ordinary Russians are destitute while Moscow is officially the fourth most expensive city in the world. And with prostitution among children rocketing, the defence of the innocent has long since taken a back seat in politics while a warped capitalism is feeding on the bodies and minds of a lost generation. Or to put it another way: “A 12-year-old girl, found on the street in Saratov [Russia] by police, said she was in prostitution to raise enough money to buy a Barbie doll.” [17]

The CIA had a vested interest in destabilizing the Soviet Union by any means necessary and did so not just by embroiling Russia in the war in Afghanistan, but allowing the seeds of decay to be facilitated with break-neck speed via the crime networks. The US knows very well that Russia is a key supplier of arms to China and has acquired the top place in oil and natural gas extraction thus holding unique bargaining advantages. Although the Cold War ended on September 11th the Islamic war shows that the Players still have a full deck of cards.

Although there has been an enormous amount of Western propaganda directed at Vladimir Putin, he has done his level best to find the balance between confronting this criminal overworld and maintaining and developing Russia’s socio-economic integrity. Not an easy task.

Back in the early 2000’s, Putin and the late Ariel Sharon were two individuals continuing the tradition of a particular financial strategy. In exchange for technology secrets from the Israeli spy rings in the US, a mass exodus of Russian Jews were to be allowed safe passage via routes which will bypass America in favour of the West bank. It was noted on several occasions in the MSM Sharon’s close ties to Putin. From a Pravada report back in 1999: “We highly appreciate Vladimir Putin’s policy and his personal guarantees, with which he repeatedly sides when the Israeli security is a matter of concern.” And with good reason. Russia also has the world’s largest oil reserves; more timber than the Amazon and substantial resources of gold, gemstones and other mineral wealth. Sharon and the US Zionists, ever on the prowl for leverage and control, see Russian politicians and the Mafia stronghold as assets for a number of opportunities. Though Ariel is dead, Prime Minister Netanyahu has extended the ties to the Russian-Jewish Mafia and built on Sharon’s relationships. However, Putin’s national and foreign policies may yet begin to chafe against Russian-Mafia and Zionist designs. Putin has an extremely complicated legacy of Old Mother Russia, the parasitical nature of the Jewish-Russian oligarchs and the present US-NATO hegmony. That’s a lot to juggle for so long.

Discarding the front of international concerns and foreign policy issues, we can see that there is another agenda at play. Notwithstanding the Israeli government’s links to Russian/Jewish mobsters, it has been reported that Sharon became a soviet asset as far back as 1981. [18] The deal is that Russia and by default, Israel riding on its back, gains a substantial foothold in the Middle East and the Mediterranean. Obviously key to Russia’s role is to remain a major player despite the aggression from US-NATO forces attempting to bait the Bear into a Cold War re-enactment. By getting the US to fight its wars and with the straddling of resources from Russia from both politicians and the Mafia, Israel and its long-term agents at strategic places in various nations continues to provide enormous leverage.

As we can see with the recent shell game of Zionist gold confiscation, financial warfare and ultra-right wing politics in the Ukraine, Putin has managed to play a very clever geopolitical game by cutting off the head of US-NATO’s imperial designs. He has also managed to retain his popularity in his native Russia. As ex-KGB, Putin is no fool. He knows that Ukrainian and Russian oligarchs straddling oil and gas are largely Jewish and/or Zionist and he also knows that the Jewish Dissidents who helped topple the U.S.S.R. remain connected to the socio-political typography of the New Russia which is effectively a Russian-Jewish mafia state.  Ukraine has a Second World War history of Jewish persecution yet, how the tables have turned. Just as Zionists and Jewish fascists are in control in the occupied territories, so too has the dominance of Russian-Zionist mafia gained control of Ukrainian culture. Meantime, US-NATO games have installed an ultra-right wing government which swings to the other extreme, effectively allowing the genuine threat of anti-Semitism against ordinary Jews to mask a long known Zionist take-over of Ukrainian culture. Putin knows how to manage the field without causing so many fractures that threaten his power. And Russia is what matters most to him most. How long he can continune to manage these forces arraigned against him is anyone’s guess.

Meantime, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu intends to deliver on the legacy of Sharon and quite a bit more. This is where the prophecies of Chabad Lubavictch and the coming of the Mélekh ha-Mashíah have worked their way into both hard line Zionism and the fortunes of both the Eagle and the Bear.

The Z Factor VI: MAFIYA (1)

By M.K. Styllinski

“The state of Israel is a major factor in the rise and power of the Jewish mafia. Jewish drug dealers, child porn pushers and slave traders are free from prosecution in Israel.”

Red Mafiya: by Robert I. Friedman


According to the UN Development Fund for Women, trafficking in women for prostitution is one of the fastest-growing organised criminal activities in the world, and follows, in frequency, only the trade in narcotics and weapons. The sex trade brings in $7-12 billion annually rising every year. While Israel is far from the only country to profit from this trade it remains one of the primary destination and transfer points from Russia and the Middle East with the US State Department listing this little country on the second tier of human trafficking around the world. Tel Aviv’s lucrative sex trade industry made over $1 billion in 2005, profits of which are largely supported by a constant flow of trafficked women from Ukraine, Moldova, Uzbekistan and Russia with many smuggled in across the Egyptian border. [1]

This has continued to increase over the intervening years. The women, many of whom are young girls, are routinely subjected to violence, sexual abuse and rape which often ends in murder. There are hundreds of legal brothels in Israel with predominantly Slavic girls who sell for about $10,000 to $15,000 apiece. They are bought and sold by Russian-Jewish mafia figures and sent to Israel, America and Britain to work. No substantial effort from Tel Aviv has sought to stem this tide. Smuggling, fraudulent documents, and the collaboration between police and brothel owners is still commonplace. While progress has been made it has been painfully slow and Israeli law and protection for prostitutes and vulnerable women remains weak and ineffective. [2] So much so that even Israel’s own women are now being sold abroad. [3]

Over two thousand women each year are trafficked to Israel. Indeed, during the last decade, hundreds of thousands of women from Russia, Ukraine, Moldova and Romania in particular have been sold into slavery as prostitutes. Israel is one of the key centres for human trafficking where a hasty and inadequate law was passed only in July 2000 to make trafficking in women illegal. Before this date the buying and selling of women was not considered legal or even worth discussing. The law was only passed due to a paper by Amnesty International which strongly criticised Israeli authorities for allowing widespread trafficking of women to continue unabated.

photo-02-Israel%20brothel

Information poster on Ukranian Prostitutes in Israel: The poster reads: “Unlike Drugs a woman’s body can be sold over and over. Owners of Israeli brothels like this one in Tel Aviv can buy young women from Moldova or Ukraine for around $4,000 each. With ten prostitutes to service customers , even a small operation can make a million dollars a year. Traffickers posing as employment agents find victims in poor Eastern European towns and lure them abroad with the promise of good jobs. When the women arrive – in Israel, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, the U.S. – they’re delivered to buyers who typically beat, rape, or terrorize them into compliance.”

With the breakdown of the Soviet Union in the late eighties, former soldiers, disenfranchised industrial workers and large numbers of prisoners released from penitentiaries contributed to a massive rise in crime. The ascendency of Russian-Jewish oligarchs living in the West, the Russian mafia has infused the global underworld, with special attention to Israel. Reports from over fifteen years ago show that this consolidation is complete with various Russian mafia groupings comprehensively controlling prostitution, arms, drugs and human trafficking. As emigration policies were relaxed in the 1990s, over half the population of Russian Jews left the country heading primarily for Israel, along with the United States, Germany, Canada, and Australia. However, the largest populations of Jewish peoples still reside in the nations of Russia.

Professor Ethan S. Burger, Senior Lecturer Centre for Transnational Crime Prevention at the University of Wollongong made a useful study of the Russian Mafia groups presented at the 2010 International Serious Organized Crime Conference in Melbourne, Australia. While he revealed just how little we know about the subject, what is certain is that the emergence of mafia states and “deep politics” – where the criminal underworld becomes the “Overworld” – is virtually complete.  Government, commerce and corporations are effectively filtered through criminal networks which means that there are now factions inside federal departments and intelligence agencies who are involved in turf wars directly related to organised crime, terrorism and political extremism. Quite a heady brew. These are signs that ponerological influences are reaching their apotheosis with consequences for for us all.

In his study, Burger highlights the possibility that Russia has inevitably become a “criminal state” with the dividing line between government and mafia groupings “not readily discernable.” Russian, Chechen, Armenian, Georgian and Azerbaijani criminal groups are separate but work together under the direction of the Solntsevskaya Bratva, the most powerful Jewish and Slavic grouping closely associated with Jewish mobster Semion Mogilevich. It is this group that sits at the top of a loosely defined hierarchy. In much the same way as Bolshevism was a predominately Jewish phenomenon * so too the present day Russian mafia and their the top leaders Ludwig Fainberg, Marat Balagula, Monya Elson, Vyacheslav Ivankov Vladimir Ginsberg, and of course, Mogilevich – are all Jewish. That isn’t designed to set the anti-Semites nodding happily, it is simply relying a fact.

Since we are exploring the background of Russian mafia and Zionist connections it is also important to point out that ethnic divisions are not a problem when it comes to creating empires of crime. However, the most powerful mafia groupings and oligarchs seem to be predominantly Jewish and/or Zionist since this is the most effective way extending reach, both culturally, economically and as a consequence of an historically nomadic and opportunistic tribal imperative.

As waves of anti-Jewish pogroms and expulsions from the countries of Western Europe marked the last centuries of the Middle Ages, a sizable portion of the Jewish populations moved to the more tolerant countries of Central and Eastern Europe, and the Middle East. Many settled in Poland and Hungary which then led to Jews from Poland migrating in large numbers to the lightly populated areas of Ukraine and Lithuania.

Late in the 19th and early 20th centuries, Jews dominated and controlled the trade in white slavery or prostitution, running brothels in Shanghai, India, Turkey, Argentina, Brazil and New York City. It steadily increased in scope and complexity, with brothels serving the primary means of financial gain, as is still the case today. This formed an extensive network based in Eastern and Central Europe, trafficking women to all corners of the globe including all parts of North and South Africa, to India, China, Japan, Philippine Island, North and South America, and many European countries. Primary cities acting as transfer points included Bulgaria, Bosnia, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique. Although mainly non-Jewish women were the victims, the Jewish criminal underworld procured young women from their own communities who were often poor and with considerable societal pressure to either accept prostitution or succumb to the the extreme poverty existing at the time.

Poland became a major focus for bonded prostitution as early as 1899 with the city of Warsaw acting as the primary location. According to Edward Bristow one of the acknowledged 20th century experts in white slavery:

In 1905 the respectable part of the Jewish Warsaw community rioted against the brothels; 40 whorehouses — legal and illegal — were reported destroyed, 8 persons killed, and 100 injured). […] In Minsk, Jews ran all four legitimate houses of ill repute. In the Russian province of Kherson (which includes the city of Odessa) 30 of 36 licensed brothels were Jewish-owned. The American Consul in Odessa wrote in 1908 that the “whole ‘business’ of prostitution is almost exclusively in the hands of the Jews.” […] In Vienna, authorities knew of about 50 Jewish prostitution traffickers based in Czernowitz, “and they were a very inbred lot extending over two generations.” The most publicized ‘white slavery’ trial occurred in 1892, in Lemberg (once also called Lvov, then a Polish provincial capital, today called Lviv in Ukraine), where 27 traffickers — all Jews — were prosecuted for ensnaring women to go to Constantinople, Egypt, and India. Some of the women recruits understood their tasks, but others “were maids, others fieldworkers, one a butcher’s helper, all apparently promised honest jobs. [4]

Bristow confirms that this method of entrapment has not changed at all in over one hundred and fifty years. From Europe to Latin America, the Jewish Mafia was expanding their operations and by 1909 they owned half of the two-hundred brothels licensed in Buenos Aires, Argentina. With the financial help from the United Jewish Philanthropies of Germany, Austria, France and Britain, and even after the persecution from the Russian and Polish pale the mafia were on hand to turn refugees into profitable commodities. This included Jewish ties in Cuba who established a trade route for prostitutes from Poland and the Balkans.

Russia and Eastern Europe had become an increasingly hostile place for Jews. Several 19th-century Russian writers, among them Dostoyevski and Gogol, have described the crime-wave from the Jewish underworld and destructive effects on Slavic peasant society as well as the perpetual condition of mutual hostility which existed between the Jews and the Slavs. The Mafia, and crime syndicates within Jewish communities knew how to exploit the suffering, including that of their own people.

New York: Lower East side’s Russian-Jewish “ghetto” of 1908

According to Dr. Mordechai Zalkin, senior lecturer in the Department of the History of the Jewish People at Ben-Gurion University, until World War II, the underworld in Warsaw, Vilna, Odessa and other large cities was controlled largely by Jewish syndicates. Zalkin believes that the late 19th and early 20th century were bad years, in which the Jews of Eastern Europe did their best simply to survive. Between 1888 and the outbreak of World War I, in 1914, two million Jews from Eastern Europe moved to America. Perhaps mass poverty on such a scale produces methods of survival where those who can adapt in a strictly Darwinian sense do so. And they thrive. This was the hard won roots of the Jewish mafia where thrive they certainly did, with a particular ruthlessness borne from intense hardship:

“… The major catalyst for the consolidation of the Jewish criminal organizations was poverty, poverty so profound that there was no chance to break out of it. The Jews had it even harder, because they were a minority within a majority that placed restrictions on them. […] Jews could be found at almost all levels of underworld activity, from the individual thief to gangs that numbered more than 100 members. The large organizations operated in the cities, which they divided into sectors among themselves. Each organization had a charter, a clear hierarchy and internal courts, and its work was divided according to different areas, such as theft, protection money, prostitution, pick-pocketing and murder. The art of crime was treated seriously, as it was a major source of livelihood for many people. Between the world wars the idea was even raised of establishing a school for thieves in Vilna. [in Lithuania] It’s not known if the idea was put into practice.” [5]

However, although poverty was certainly the cause of widespread crime and prostitution Bristow argued that the 1914 League of Nations survey of 25 Jewish prostitutes in Buenos Aires showed that only 4 of them claimed to be poor before their new trade. Nine, however, stated that their family lives had been “immoral or abusive in some way.”

Similarly, Prof. Robert Rockaway, from the department of Jewish history at Tel Aviv University notes that Detroit’s Jewish Purple Gang members “were not products of crushing poverty, broken homes, or widespread economic despair. Most of them had been raised in lower middle class households where the father had a steady, if not well-paying, job.” (Interestingly, the centre of the Jewish trade in Polish girls was in a little town called Oswiecim or – “Auschwitz.”)

Essentially, the oppressive period of communism was also a time for the Jewish Bolsheviks to exercise their control within Russia, the Ukraine and the Slavic countries, coming down hard on the growing capitalism which included their Jewish compatriots in human trafficking. Enter the historical period of slave labour camps where many Russian and Ukrainian nationalists perished and for whom the Jewish identity and its underworld had become synonymous. Many enemies of the Jews died in these camps enabling in part, the Russian/Jewish underworld to gain a lasting ascendance. It was here that the roots of Russian crime – well established within Soviet bureaucracy – began to fuse with the extensive underworld and Zionist global connections. With the collapse of communism and the Soviet Union, the Jewish Networks and the Russian Mafia became one. As the late Russian-Jewish magnate and fervant Zionist Boris Berezovsky declared in 1996, and a candid response to his critics at the height of his obligarchal control: “Every Jew, regardless of where he is born or lives, is de facto a citizen of Israel,” …“The fact that I have annulled my Israeli citizenship today in no way changes the fact that I am a Jew and can again become a citizen of Israel whenever I choose. Let there be no illusions about it, ‘every Jew in Russia is a dual citizen’ ”.

Young students and those from poor backgrounds in Russia, Ukraine and the Slavic countries are still being lured by promises of big money and/or paid blue collar work only to find themselves working in brothels with no way out until their debt for the travel costs are paid back in full. Even then, the chances are that freedom will mean transportation to a new region and a new brothel to begin it all over again. One could see why Hitler and his twisted form of Gnostic fascism ostensibly chose the underworld Jewish mafia of the time as a caricature of the Jewish people as a whole and the pariah and projection of all the German peoples’ ills and frustrations. Obviously, many Jewish peoples wanted nothing to do with such crime and its Zionist roots, as is the case today. As Bristow mentions: “Jews were already blamed in central Europe for a financial crash in 1873 and economic competition between Jews and non-Jews was heightening. In Chicago, by 1907 Rabbi Emil Hirsch declared that 75 per cent of the “white slavery” in his city was controlled by Jews.

It was no accident that The Jewish Kehillah in New York City was formed together with the American Jewish Committee. The delegates at the first open meeting in 1906 represented 222 Jewish societies – religious, political, industrial and communal. Just over a year later the number of Jewish organizations under the jurisdiction of the Kehillah reached 688, and by 1921 over 1,000. An aggressive program from the Kehillah was implemented to make New York “a Jewish city”, and through New York to make the United States a Jewish country. In the 1920s the United States of America had fielded a vast exodus of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe which brought with it an extensive network of mafia links which laid the foundations for a new form of crime organisation. They were by no means the only crime network, but they were certainly the most powerful.

1917 saw the Balfour Declaration and a home grown Zionist dream of a State of Israel was the beginning of a long cherished plan from a host of diverse parties all with their respective goals. The Protestants in Britain and forerunners of the Christian Zionists of today implemented the declaration itself, identifying themselves as the inheritors of the Israelites or the lost ten tribes. This support grew for restoration of the Jews as the rightful owners of “the Holy Land.” The movement was given succour by many that were that were distinctly unfriendly in their intentions. As we have noted, some branches of Protestantism posit that the Second Coming of Christ would only come only after the Jews were re-established in their land. Then there was the rising anti-Semitic backlash made up of individuals who saw the established Jewish homeland as a perfect solution to ridding the Europe of Jews. The British Empire also hoped that a Jewish Palestine would be an excuse for a British protectorate there, and would establish a power base in the Middle East that would ensure geo-political leverage well into the future. Once Israel was firmly established as a thriving hub of allegiance between crime networks in America, Israel’s “business” began to flourish and diversify from the HQ of a “promised” homeland.

Professor Rockaway believes that those coming straight from the survivalist rigours of their former homeland knew full well that economic advancement was not going to be an option. The underworld ties still in place abroad and the particular brand of US capitalism which was busy sharpening its teeth, offered a seamless homogenization and extension of Jewish crime organizations which had first been seeded in Russia and Eastern Europe. Zionist gangsters were among the frontline of organized crime during the start of the twentieth century. For an example, among many, Rockaway states: “Arnold Rothstein, was the head of the New York underworld in the 1920s. He created the largest gambling empire the U.S. had ever seen until then. He controlled most of the gangs in New York, including drugs and liquor. Rothstein was the first entrepreneur in the U.S. who created a well-oiled organization to smuggle liquor during Prohibition.” [6]

Criminals such as Abner Zwillman, Joseph Reinfeld, Bugsy Seigel and later Julius Berstein were at the forefront of US crimes including everything from extortion, contraband, gambling and the still rising profits of prostitution. Jewish-American gangsters such as the notorious Meyer Lansky who underpinned much of the outgrowth of Jewish crime had strong links to Israel and its development. His life-long associate Joe Stacher (the first official Israeli mobster) also helped in the struggle for Israel’s creation during the 1940s, by providing shipments of weapons and military hardware to the pre-state Haganah defense organization, the forerunner of the Israel Defense Forces. According to Rockaway, tens of thousands of dollars from other Jewish underworld figures helped in the establishment of the new Zionist settlements. World War II only increased the cover of the Zionist movement as a whole.

It was around the 1960s that leading figures in the Irgun Jewish terrorist group by suggestion or by their own volition, decided to bring key players within Jewish organized crime from the West into the heart of Israel, most notably Tel Aviv. This was due to the fact that key movers within the Irgun or “The Organization” were active in the underworld and fascist at their roots. They obviously abhorred anti-Semitism but aligned themselves with elements of the Mussolini doctrine. Arms, drug running and money laundering grew to staggering proportions, the latter being particularly notorious amongst Russian/Jewish banks within Israel and Wall Street.

Back in 1968, Israeli Finance Minister Pinchas Sapir, the creator of Israel’s “offshore” banking system, sponsored the first of many “millionaires conferences” in Jerusalem. All in attendance were in one way or another connected to the Israeli intelligence apparatus responsible for the weapons and money that helped create Israel in 1948. Among them were: Louis Boyar and Sam Rothberg, Max Fisher, Philip Klutznik, Henry Crown, Raphael Recanati, Ray Wolfe and Shaul Eisenberg. (If we remember from a previous post Eisenberg’s Israel Corporation had it’s beginnings in this secret meeting and which led to the Banque du Credit International money laundering scandal set up by Tibor Rosenbaum). The injection of capital into the designs of Israel is on-going and underworld crime naturally benefits. Indeed, if it is correct that 50 per cent of Russian wealth is owned by Russian Jews then it’s only logical that the capital – political and otherwise – is increasingly a factor in Israel’s ideological designs; not forgetting since 1973, Israel has cost the United States alone about $1.6 trillion. If divided by today’s population, that is more than $5,700 per person.

The Club of Isles (which allegedly has one time friend of Eisenberg and “philanthropist” Jewish George Soros as an active member) the Carlyle Group, Bilderberg Grp., The Club of Rome, or the Trilateral Commission and other glorified Old Boys’ Clubs all have members of a Zionist Elite. Not forgetting the ever present and hugely influential House of Rothschild dynasty …

Once again, our mixed up and fluid reality ensures that objectivity regarding the Jewish role is a veritable mine-field of beliefs and emotional reactions. This goes a long way in explaining its ascendency and continuing hold on most of the world’s future, let alone the lives of Palestinians. Israel and the Russian underworld are brothers in arms, trafficking and narcotics all of which merge into the intelligence apparatus.

Robert I. Friedman

Robert I. Friedman, the late Jewish, Ukrainian-American investigative journalist and expert on the Russian “Mafiya” – and who was murdered by poisoning in 2002 [7] was told by US State Department crime expert Jonathan Winer that: “There is not a major Russian organized crime figure whom we are tracking who does not also carry an Israeli passport.” He believed – and authorities concur – that Israel and Russia are the “principle residences of most Russian crime bosses…” and further: “Of all the nations where the Russian mob has established a presence, none has been more deeply compromised than the State of Israel,” which has led to the Russian mafia becoming: “… a grave threat to the stability of Israel.” [8] In fact, Friedman’s research confirms that: “… all 75 of the top Russian and Ukrainian crime kingpins the U.S. government was tracking worldwide at the end of the 1990s were citizens of Israel.” (More from Friedman in the next post)

Rather like Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, US Federal law enforcement’s efforts to investigate Russian Mafia leaders have been continually thwarted by high level officials in the US government or the tried and tested pretense of the anti-Semitism meme. Friedman believed that within the stocks, insurance, Medicare and credit card industries some of the biggest frauds in US history have been carried out by these Mafia groups and their respectable – often Jewish – fronts. The author explains how their dealings branch into counterfeit currencies, money laundering, narcotics and weapons trafficking, gambling and protection rackets, prostitution rackets and sex slave industries, and the appropriation of gasoline and other fuels. In fact, just about anything which can be criminalised the profit extracted as quickly as possible then the Russian Mafia have either cornered, stolen or created the market. To that end, the author states: “Ukrainian Jewish mafia kingpins also reportedly laundered about $9 billion through the Bank of New York during Russia’s financial meltdown in 1998, and are believed to be fixing games in the National Hockey League. Outside the United States, these crime syndicates are supplying weapons to insurgents, paramilitaries and drug traffickers in Colombia, Brazil and the Andean region.” [9]

If it wasn’t present at its inception, Zionism has now clearly merged with underworld financing with money laundering, sex slavery and narcotics as a few of the primary activities of Israeli crime syndicates. [10]

 


* The late Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Two volume work Two Hundred Years Together published in 2001-2002 provides the definitive open and shut case for Bolshevism and its Jewish roots in both belief and the eventual revolution itself. Yet, of course, Zionists and academic Jews had to come down hard on the Nobel Laureate and accuse him very quickly of anti-Semitism. Thankfully, most people were not convinced. In a recent guardian article Solzhenitsyn states:

“My book was directed to empathise with the thoughts, feelings and the psychology of the Jews – their spiritual component,” he said. “I have never made general conclusions about a people. I will always differentiate between layers of Jews. One layer rushed headfirst to the revolution. Another, to the contrary, was trying to stand back. The Jewish subject for a long time was considered prohibited. Zhabotinsky [a Jewish writer] once said that the best service our Russian friends give to us is never to speak aloud about us.”

‘Solzhenitsyn breaks last taboo of the revolution’ The Guardian, Nick Paton Walsh, January 2003.

And so it is with the Russian-Jewish mafia.

The Z Factor V: Terror Tactics

 “The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”.

— Josef Stalin


“Terrorism” (Latin for terreō meaning “I frighten”) derives from the French word “terrorisme,” its origins drawn from the state terrorism practiced by the French government of Robespierre during and after the 1789 Revolution and its “Reign of terror.” Although many of us see these as a product of nationalistic, religious zealotry or anarchistic aggression, “terrorism” originally meant acts committed by a government but the origins became completely reversed now referring to the killing of innocent people by an external group outside government. The acts perpetrated were often shocking in their brutality, always ending in the respective government’s favour as the impeachable symbol of democracy and freedom. Sadly, the historical origins of these state dynamics have been continually altered and air-brushed away so that in the end, the truth is often the exact reverse of what we have been taught.

FlagjasperjohnsJasper Johns: “Flag”

A United Nations Secretary General report from November 2004, described terrorism as any act “… intended to cause death or serious bodily harm to civilians or non-combatants with the purpose of intimidating a population or compelling a government or an international organization to do or abstain from doing any act.” [2] In fact, we can word this passage more accurately: “Terrorism are acts directly or indirectly instigated by governments intended to cause death or serious bodily harm to civilians or non-combatants with the purpose of intimidating a population or an international organization to do or abstain from doing any act that is deemed counter to those governments, international banking cartels and corporate interests.”

Going hand in hand with this shock treatment is our beloved media searing the images into the public’s consciousness along with the requisite perception management comprising of a) a simplistic presentation either devoid of facts or the sins of omission and b) complete authoritative fabrications. This formula has been enormously successful reinforced by a legion of Hollywood films, all of which subtly or crudely reinforce the myth of Al-Qaeda/ISIL as the designated evil terrorist group bent on attacking America. Indeed, the FBI routinely hatches terrorists plots in order to keep the myth alive with “… undercover agents and informers pos[ing] as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training.”  Suspects naïvely play their parts until arrested. [1]

The Miami 7, the Fort Dix 6, the Newburgh 4, the Underwear Bomber, the Portland Car Bomber – all were set up with straw men so that they would be easily foiled, with the MSM singing the praises of brave intelligence men protecting the sanctity of the free world.  If the drama isn’t injected into the bloodstream of US consciousness on a regular basis then fear and ignorance begins to erode. You have to justify those devaluing tax dollars after all.

Something that must not be forgotten and which is already employed by the MOSSAD to great affect is the idea of double agents working within enemy organisations and terrorist groupings. Usually, agents act to promote the interests of the opposing side by carrying out acts of terror that serve to ostracise and de-legitimise both ethically and morally, the wider cause for which it is fighting, whether it is Irish or Iraqi freedom; Palestinian liberation or African independence. PSYOPS create lies and propaganda to bolster acts of terror in order to manage and contour public perception towards the idea that it is always the proponents of resistance who are fighting against the path of democracy, therefore to be mistrusted if not hated, which is easy if the terrorist atrocity is suitably shocking.

If the “terrorist” groups happen to conform to Anglo-American policy or have been paid or infiltrated sufficiently, they are “freedom fighters.” If however, they are counter to hegemonic designs then they are usually called “terrorists” or the more useful term of “insurgents” which allows for more invasive PR as and when needed.

Al-Qaeda (and now ISIL) are the main ingredients for the global “War on Terror” and the continuance of a “Strategy of Tension,” the forerunner of which were the stay behind,  anti-Communist terror teams of Europe, collectively known as Operation Gladio.[3] Its roots are drawn from a mixture of entirely fabricated justifications and a ruthless exploitation of underlying fears and grievances with roots in colonialism, Cold war and Empire building up to the present day. Islamic extremism is a prime pathology to foster as it widens the psychic wound in the mass mind still further after the trauma of war and generational socio-economic suffering. Manipulation of religious precepts based on centuries of genocide and war is a potent cocktail. It requires a keen knowledge of mass psychology, propaganda and the interlocking systems of finance, mafia, mercenaries and religious-political groupings to be able to apply this knowledge effectively. Fear is the only currency that routinely provides the best emotional exchange rate. The more fear is engendered, the better you can mould the perceptions and get away with mass murder and pass it off as a strictly homegrown act of terror set against the civilised West.

In the acclaimed UK documentary The Power of Nightmares by Adam Curtis Top CIA officials openly admit that the creation and history of Al-Qaeda as a terrorist network is a fabrication, though there are many other populist and academic sources that will prove the phony nature of Al-Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden as the root of all the terror nonsense equally well. [4]

As former French intelligence officer Major Pierre-Henry Bunel states:

“The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money.” [5]

The CIA has used his ghost to buttress the fantasy that is Al-Qaeda, employing fake media reports and video appearances clearly from persons other than Bin Laden himself which all fed into the aftermath of the new pearl harbour that was 911. [6]

Even the name of Al-Qaeda has produced confusion and even dark amusement in Arab circles as one commentator wryly observed: “You have heard before that ‘Al-Qaeda’ roughly translates into ‘the base,’ but were you aware that ‘Ana raicha Al Qaeda’ is Arabic colloquial for ‘I’m going to the toilet’? Would hardened terrorists hell bent on the destruction of the west name their organization after a euphemism for taking a shit?” [7]

A fair point.

The common tactic that has been referred to before is known as the Hegelian Dialectic, (though in truth, Hegel described social changes rather than pointed manipulation in this context). However, it serves a suitable framework for the thinking behind state-sponsored terrorism which goes something like this:

  • The government creates or takes advantage of an opportunity to exploit a problem then blames it on a target “enemy”.
  • The public reacts with anger and outrage and demands the government take action in the form of assistance, protection or overt action against the “evil doers.”
  • The government happily offers the solution that was waiting in the wings and planned long before the crisis in question.
  • Conclusion: civil rights and liberties are willingly exchanged for the illusion of government assistance, protection and action. Unfortunately, it’s all a sham.

 “To prohibit free speech is the first act of terrorism.”

—Spinoza


This is the geo-political paradigm of our times largely unknown by the public, though hopefully this is slowly beginning to change for the younger generations of our Information Age. Government and military agencies at the mid to lower levels are also equally unaware of this old formula which writer G. Edward Griffin described as: “… not a war on terrorism to defend freedom, but a war on freedom that requires the defense of terrorism.” [8]

For those still unconvinced that governments are incapable of killing their own citizens – en masse – for long and short-term political dividends, then please look at Washington’s Blog and their list of 42 admitted false flag attacks.


State-sponsored terror campaigns are not the exclusive domain of Zionists or Israeli extremists. However, the MOSSAD and Zionism have cornered the market in expertise having had a rich history in psychological operations, perception management and propaganda tactics. That being so, they have both the socio-political, ideological and professional passion to do what it takes to push through their singular agenda on the rest of the world.  That said, as I constantly reiterate, the only conspiracy worth paying attention to is that of the psychopaths in power. It matters little which political label he has temporarily created or hijacked. The Zionist Establishment is simply one facet of a overarching Global Establishment which has many psychopathic players. We’ll look at those dominant forces later in this series.

PSYOPS and false flag operations have been a specialty of the MOSSAD for some considerable time. These operations have created enormous pain and conflict the effects of which exist as social scars, warping perceptions, creating factional hatreds and civil wars. Though terrorist acts have extended back into biblical history the last fifty years has seen some of the worst with the MOSSAD either directly or indirectly involved. We will explore just a few of the more well-known operations.

In April 1950, a series of anti-Jewish bombings occurred in Iraq. At the time there were several thousand Jews living in the country who interestingly considered themselves “… as Arabs of the Jewish faith, rather than as a separate race or nationality.” [9] This integration would have been less than palatable to the Zionist underground which was already well established. During the intense exodus period that Zionist spellbinders were trying to encourage there was however, little enthusiasm for Jews to pack their bags to the recently colonised Palestine a repeating pattern in the Jewish diaspora generally. Despite the denaturalisation law due to expire in March 1951 and the growing fear by Iraqi Jews that large-scale pogroms were about to arrive, the attacks by many historians and commentators were later attributed to the MOSSAD. Despite a secret Israeli inquiry in 1960 which found no evidence that Israel was involved in the bombings, one always has to beg the question – the impartiality problem aside – who would gain the greatest benefit from such attacks?

InJuly 22, 1946 The King David hotel was ripped apart by a powerful bomb killing 92 British soldiers and wounding 58 who then initially blamed the atrocity on Arabs. Although members of the Jewish terror group Irgun Z’vai Leumi took responsibility for this crime, they also later made it public that they obtained the consent and approval of the Haganah Command (the forerunner of the Israeli Defence Force). The motive was to destroy all evidence the British had gathered proving that the terrorist crime waves in Palestine were not merely the actions of “fringe” groups such as the Irgun and Stern Gang, but were committed in collusion with the Haganah and Palmach groups and under the direction of the highest political body of the Zionist establishment. Then Prime Minister Anthony Eden was asked for his opinion after the bombing: “… It appears that, after exploding a small bomb in the street, presumably as a diversionary measure … a lorry drove up to the tradesmen’s entrance of the King David Hotel and the occupants, after holding up the staff at pistol point, entered the kitchen premises carrying a number of milk cans. At some stage of the proceedings, they shot and seriously wounded a British soldier who attempted to interfere with them. All available information so far is to the effect that they were Jews.” [10]

The Chief Secretary for the Government of Palestine, Sir John Shaw, spoke of his personal friends and colleagues who died in the attack comprising of: “British, Arabs, Jews, Greeks, Armenians; senior officers, police, my orderly, my chauffeur, messengers, guards, men and women – young and old – they were my friends. No man could wish to be served by a more industrious, loyal and honest group of ordinary decent people. Their only crime was their devoted, unselfish and impartial service to Palestine and its people. For this they have been rewarded by cold-blooded mass murder.” [11]

The failed 1954 Israeli Operation Savannah in Egypt where U.S. and U.K. targets were bombed and evidence left implicating the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, was a textbook false flag operation. One of the bombs detonated prematurely allowing the Egyptians to capture one of the agents and an eventual breaking up of yet another Israeli spy ring. The assignment was “To undermine Western confidence in the existing [Egyptian] regime by generating public insecurity and actions to bring about arrests, demonstrations, and acts of revenge, while totally concealing the Israeli factor. The team was accordingly urged to avoid detection, so that suspicion would fall on the Muslim Brotherhood, the Communists, ‘unspecified malcontents’ or ‘’local nationalists’.” [12]

The Israeli defense minister Pinhas Lavon was forced to resign over the incident. Thereafter, the scandal became known as “The Lavon Affair”. In March 2005, Israeli President Moshe Katzav presided over a ceremony honouring the bombers who carried out the attack saying that the Israeli government has “decided now to express our respect for these heroes.” [13]

USS_Liberty

Damaged USS Liberty one day (9 June 1967) after attack. (wikipedia)

On June 6 1967 during the Arab-Israeli war six mirage jets, three torpedo boats and two assault helicopters initiated an unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty killing 34 servicemen. Israel said its military had been confused by an out-of-service Egyptian horse carrier the El Quseir and thus a legitimate target, despite the fact that the vessel “was approximately one-quarter of the Liberty’s tonnage, about one-half its length, and offered a radically different silhouette.” Admiral Thomas H. Moorer was quoted in a 1991 Washington Post report that: “To suggest that they [the IDF] couldn’t identify the ship is … ridiculous. … Anybody who could not identify the Liberty could not tell the difference between the White House and the Washington Monument.” [14]

Another give away sign that this was a false flag came from the fact that the jets were unmarked. The only reason for such an anomaly was that Israel knew the ship was American, had planned to sink it and blame it on Egypt in the hope of pulling in US support for the Arab-Israeli war. Further evidence came 15 years later in the unlikely approach of an Israeli pilot to the Liberty survivors who then talked to former Congressman Paul N. McCloskey about his role.

The pilot said he had:

“… recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested. Later, a dual-citizen Israeli major told survivors that he was in an Israeli war room where he heard that pilot’s radio report. The attacking pilots and everyone in the Israeli war room knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major said. He recanted the statement only after he received threatening phone calls from Israel.

The pilot’s protests also were heard by radio monitors in the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon. Then-U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dwight Porter has confirmed this. Porter told his story to syndicated columnists Rowland Evans and Robert Novak and offered to submit to further questioning by authorities. Unfortunately, no one in the U.S. government has any interest in hearing these first-person accounts of Israeli treachery.” [15]

True to form, rather than admitting the truth, the US embarked on a cover-up.

Retired Capt. Ward Boston in a signed affidavit released at a Capitol Hill news conference, said that President Lyndon Johnson and Defence Secretary Robert McNamara ordered the Navy’s inquiry at the time to: “…conclude that the attack was a case of ‘mistaken identity’ ” despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. US crewman Phil Tourney in collaboration with journalist Mark Glenn’s wrote the 2005 book: What I saw that day – Israel’s June 8th 1967 holocaust of US Servicemen aboard the USS Liberty. Tourney is no doubt what happened and who was responsible: He states: “You have to remember,” … “our ship had been on fire with napalm, and Liberty’s fuel tanks were burning. I was filled with rage and anger. We’re the greatest nation on Earth, and no one came to help. . . At that point I realized: We’re going to have to do this on our own. My biggest fear, though, was that the Israelis would return and finish us off. Plus, let’s be clear, every crew member knew Israel was responsible, because we saw their flag on the torpedo boats.” [16]


 “Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death”.

– Adolph Hitler


The Italian cruise ship the Achille Lauro was apparently hi-jacked on October 7 1985 by “members of the Palestine Liberation Front as retaliation for the bombing of PLO headquarters by Israeli forces in ‘Operation Wooden Leg.’ However, Israeli Defence Force arms dealer Ari Ben-Menashe in his 1992 book, Profits of War: Inside the Secret U.S.-Israeli Arms Network, disclosed that the hijack had been organised and funded by MOSSAD. It was another attempt to cast Palestinians as the archetypal terrorist and to create a negative image of Arabs in the public.

Ben-Menashe wrote that the black operation was organised by Israeli agents via:

“… Abu-l-Abbas [or Mohammed Abbas Zaydan] who, to follow such orders was receiving millions from Israeli intelligence officers posing as Sicilian dons. Abbas . . . gathered a team to attack the cruise ship. The team was told to make it bad, to show the world what lay in store for other unsuspecting citizens if Palestinian demands were not met. As the world knows, the group picked on an elderly American Jewish man in a wheelchair, killed him, and threw his body overboard. They made their point. But for Israel, it was the best kind of anti-Palestinian propaganda.”

Abbas later apologised for the killing of the Jewish-American passenger Leon Klinghoffer mentioning: “The hi-jacking was a mistake, and there were no orders to kill civilians.” Though he was sentenced to five life terms in Italy, and was wanted in the United States, Abbas remained a free man. Egyptian Prime-Minister Hosni Mubarak allowed Abbas and other terrorists to fly to Tunisia while President Ronald Reagan sent U.S. warplanes to intercept the flight, forcing it to land at a US-Italian air base in Sicily. An extradition battle ensued but Italians refused to extradite any of the men. Then, in a move that was even more bizarre, Abbas was allowed to go to Yugoslavia while an Italian court convicted the hijackers – including Abbas – in absentia and found them guilty. Since the Italian court ruling Abu Abbas was still wanted in Italy but Israel’s agents in both the former Yugoslavia and in Italy did not hand him over to authorities very possibly due to Israel’s complicity in the operation which would have been raised in court.[17] Abbas died on March 9, 2004, in while in Iraq and in U.S. custody which had become a hotbed of MOSSAD-CIA-MI5 actvities.

It was highly probable that Abbas was in fact a MOSSAD asset all along. As Middle East expert Patrick Seale wrote concerning Abu Nidal and Palestinian terrorism: “Israeli penetration of Palestinian organizations was common, but it was clearly not the whole story. Most intelligence sources I consulted agreed that it was standard practice to use penetration agents not simply to neutralize or destroy the enemy but to try to manipulate him so that he did one’s bidding without always being aware of doing.” [18]

Another Israeli false flag worth mentioning is the bombing of another American ship, the Navy destroyer USS Cole on the morning of October 12, 2000. While harbored at the Yemeni port of Aden, a small craft, approached the port side of the destroyer and minutes later an explosion occurred which resulted in the deaths of 17 American sailors with 39 injured. The blast hit the ship’s galley, where crew were lining up for lunch. [19] Al-Qaeda apparently claimed responsibility. Several points were anomalous regarding the incident.

clip_image004

The 40-foot-wide hole near the waterline of the USS Cole

Firstly, the damage to the engine room was extreme, “with a 20 x 40 foot hole in the hull, main engines destroyed, bulkheads torn apart, and severe damage inflicted on the keel. Significantly, although the strike was on the engine room(s), there was no fire. This particular point will make sense to explosives experts.” [20]Moreover, the pattern of the damage along with forensic evidence recovered from the scene: “… suggests the USS Cole was struck by a television guided Rafael Popeye 2. The Popeye 2 differs only slightly from the American AGM 142A Raptor, being a little shorter in overall length and with a slightly smaller warhead. Popeye 2 is designated AGM 142B by the US military, but has never been purchased by American forces. The only nations currently known to possess and use this missile are Israel, Turkey and North Korea.” [21]

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh saw MOSSAD’s involvement as “probable” and accused the Israel’s agency of planning the attack since 1997 due to the infiltration of Israeli intelligence agents in “… Islamic movements such as Islamic Jihad … during their stay in Afghanistan” in the 1980s …” [22]

The Zionist influence inside the US administration helps to ensure such false flag operations have zero coverage – only that which helps the Zionist cause. In Israeli Prime Minister Moshe Sharatt’s personal diaries an excerpt from May of 1955 quotes Moshe Dayanstating: “[Israel] must see the sword as the main, if not the only, instrument with which to keep its morale high and to retain its moral tension. Toward this end it may, no — it must — invent dangers, and to do this it must adopt the method of provocation-and-revenge…And above all — let us hope for a new war with the Arab countries, so that we may finally get rid of our troubles and acquire our space.” [23]

There are many more well-known and less well-known examples of MOSSAD’s presence regarding so-called terrorist atrocities and suicide bombings of the past. The World Trade Centre attacks of September 11th may have been the mother of all operations to date, which comprehensively changed not only the geo-political landscape of the world but more importantly the perceptions of the global population. Evidence of Israeli complicity is compelling, the success of which would have been impossible without assistance from rogue factions within the US military and Bush-Cheney administration. Consequently, it would be wrong to infer that Israeli intelligence and its handlers – despite its enormous sayanim / spy network – are the only ones blowing up innocent civilians for geo-political strategies. State sponsored terrorism has flourished under America’s CIA, Britain’s MI6 and MI5 all of whom have a long tradition of atrocity, though never reaching the high standards of Israeli Intel.

map34According to the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl, “the area of the Jewish State stretches:

“From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.” According to Rabbi Fischmann, “The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon.”

– The Infamous “Oded Yinon Plan” By Israel Sharak.

(Source: Greater Israel – The Zionist Plan for the Middle East By Michel Chossudovky)

Sometimes all three agencies work together out of necessity rather than any idea of trust which is an anathema given the nature of their objectives. The use of double agents is essential for marketing the War on Terror as a viable cover story. There is always a mix of Intel agents; Jewish-Americans and outsourced mercenaries posing as Al-Qaeda operatives. [24]

Among the “jewels” of false flag history include the much documented facts of the Gladio terrorist teams whose task it was to instil fear into the populace while framing communist and left-wing political opponents for terrorist atrocities. The famous Operation Northwoods paper also showed how psychopathology could insinuate its way into American politics with relative ease. This document called for acts of mass terrorism such as hijackings and bombings against American citizens in United States cities which could then be blamed on Cuba as a prelude to invasion. In fact, in 2002, the US administration was handed yet more evidence that “… the Israeli Mossad and other Israeli intelligence services [had] been involved in a 13-month effort to ‘recruit’ an Israeli-run, phony ‘Al-Qaeda cell’ among Palestinians, so that Israel could achieve a frontline position in the U.S. war against terrorism and get a green light for a worldwide ‘revenge without borders’ policy.” [25]

(Revenge appears to be a very strong psychological facet for some Zionist and Jewish mentalities as we will discover as it seems to crop up a great deal as a justification for war crimes against Palestinians and actions of the Jewish Mafia. We will explore both of these in further detail later on).

Meanwhile, yet another botched attempt by British MI5 operatives aka “Special Forces” in Basra, Iraq in 2005 saw the capture by Iraqi police of two Caucasian men dressed as cartoon Arabs, and were found with Arab disguises and advanced weapons stashed in the boot of their car. They had been merrily carrying out fake ‘insurgent’ attacks, including ‘car suicide bombings’ against Iraqi policemen and Iraqi civilians.

This even led to the British army storming the Iraqi police prison where the two were held and forcibly removing them. Such was there concern that covert operations might be revealed. [26] Albeit unusual, this was all reported in the online pages of BBC News.

These terrorist acts have also focused on ordinary Shia and Sunni Iraqis where funerals, marriages, market places and civilian meetings were deemed legitimate targets since the US-led invasion several years ago. These tactics are designed to provide continued justification for the US, and British military presence so that they are able to carry out their plan of terrorizing the population and igniting religious hatred, the results of which will see the country descending into chaos and if necessary, civil war thus paving the way for the balkanisation of Iraq into more manageable states. Corporate “reconstruction” continues to make a (literal) killing for overseas share-holders. Anglo-American-Israeli interests will continue to mine Iraq’s resources, while a once sovereign country is stamped with: “Property of Zion’s Greater Israel.”

An objective of false flag operations in this context would be, as Zio-Con strategist Michael Ledeen mentioned: “instability in the Middle East,” which he believes: “… is the preferred political state because it facilitates U.S. control of the region.” Ledeen who has extensive ties to Israel mentions without a trace of embarrassment: “Stability is an unworthy American mission and a misleading concept to boot, the real issue is not whether, but how to destabilize.” [27]  And false flag terror tactics fulfil that role precisely. (More on Leeden in a previous post)

With such a feeding frenzy of vested interests operating, a note of extreme caution must surely be directed at Israel and its MOSSAD. From such conscious drives to control others it might be said that an almighty fall usually results, the toxic effects of which return not only to the sender but a large proportion of humanity.  Victor Ostrovsky relates an eerie warning sign of one possible future:  “The one problem with the system is that the MOSSAD does not seem to care how devastating it could be to the status of the Jewish people in the diaspora if it was known. The answer you get if you ask is: “So what’s the worst that could happen to those Jews?’ They’d all come to Israel – Great.”

And in the face of geopolitical manipulations and interference, religious extremism and economic disintegration that is exactly what is happening. The MOSSAD may well find itself outmanoeuvred on the global chess board with catastrophic results.  Just imagine what would happen if suddenly all the fingers pointed to Israel and MOSSAD as the masterminds of Global Terrorism?

In typical Machiavellian fashion, those that are experts in deceiving, may themselves deceived.

Gladio was part of a post-World War II program set up by the CIA and NATO supposedly to thwart future Soviet/communist invasions or influence in Italy and Western Europe. In fact, it became a state-sponsored right-wing terrorist network, involved in false flag operations and the subversion of democracy.
The existence of Gladio was confirmed and admitted by the Italian government in 1990, after a judge, Felice Casson, discovered the network in the course of his investigations into right-wing terrorism. Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti admitted Gladio’s existence but tried to minimize its significance.
The main function of the Gladio-style groups, in the absence of Soviet invasion, seems to have been to discredit left-wing groups and politicians through the use of “the strategy of tension,” including false-flag terrorism. … The aim was to instill fear into the populace while framing communist and left-wing political opponents for terrorist atrocities.” – Operation GladioNATO/CIA “Stay-Behind” Secret Armies/ Truth Move / International Truth Movement, http://www.truthmove.org/content/operation-gladio/

The Z Factor IV: “By Way of Deception”

Alex

Efraim Halevi (wikipedia)

On 26 June 2002 the former chief of the MOSSAD Efraim Halevi addressed a closed meeting of the NATO Council in Brussels. All 19 NATO members took part in the meeting. Halevi’s sentiments underscore the strategy and beliefs so common in the Zionist elite in America and Israel. In his opening sentence he sets the agenda that Israel is the victim rather than the outright aggressor: “At our meeting today which is designed to review the main elements in our strategic assessment of the threats to Israel and to freedom-seeking nations of the world.” The chief also makes the relationship between terrorism and the USA as the victim and innocent party, priming his audience as a parish priest would his village sinners. He explicitly states that 9/11 was a “declaration of third World War” with Israel and the U.S. who are naturally on the side of the righteous and just. He further stresses the attack by spectral terrorist forces “conducted against free societies with weapons and strategies not known till now. This is a war that takes no notice of the rules of war and international legal norms.”

Mr Halevi dazzled his audience further by attempting to implant in the minds of these NATO lambs that all Arabs are terrorists and all those not with Israel are against Israel; terrorist sympathizers and enemies of a singular State, where in order to confront this global problem one must join hands with Israel – that leading light of conflict resolution – and embark on a crusade against a foe to end all foes. After a simplistic warning of the perils of Islam he then lays the ground work for the final denouement:  “If violent minority groups are not stopped – and in many cases totally wiped out – then the saying ‘nothing succeeds like success’ is likely to symbolize a terrible threat to the basic fabric of the countries that are NATO members and which Muslim countries are developing and growing in number and influence while preserving individual cultures and identities.”

The above is extraordinary in its exploitation of a US-Israel created global crisis with a bombshell of eliminating “violent minority groups” which would no doubt mean Palestinian peoples i.e. terrorist, i.e. Al-Qaeda. The director then makes the link between wiping out terrorism and the “growing and developing” of Muslim communities within NATO countries by the implication of crackdowns on suspected terrorists. He finishes up with an unconvincing sop to cultural diversity. The ambiguous tone of his speech is left behind in the following paragraph where he essentially calls for a free-for-all, hot on the heels of his declaration of moderation and democratic freedoms:

Given this complicated situation, we must give great weight in our strategic assessment to the “forms of warfare” that we shall use in coming months and years. We see terror as a whole and the suicide attacks in particular as a “form of warfare” that must be outlawed and prohibited by international law. All support for these actions, or permit to carry them out, must be outlawed in the clearest possible way. The dispatchers, movements, states, and entities involved in actions of this kind, or those encouraging them, whether in a specific or implicit way, must be placed outside the pale of law and justice. Such actions will not only do a service to a country like Israel, but will also, as previously hinted, preserve free societies in Europe, Asia, the American continent, and in every other place. [5] [Emphasis mine]

The preservation of the “free societies in Europe and Asia” will only be free insofar as they adhere to American and Israeli Imperialism. After all, if the individual cultures of Europe are seen as opposed to the aims of Israel, they will certainly be put on the list of “minority groups” to be “wiped out,” (perhaps even by Ethnic Specific Weapons?) and since “international legal norms” are flouted then a “fighting fire with fire” approach will be necessary. Those targeted will include those seen to be “encouraging” the terrorist “whether in a specific or implicit way.” That means that any German, Frenchman, Pole, Chinese, or any other person in any country, becomes a “legal target” for the vigilante justice of Israel and the United States, something which the Obama administration has now taken to heart with the onset of an extrajudicial assassination program.

This is reiterated in a later passage where Halevi says that the war against terror “does not fit in with the political agenda” where “Statehood and the right of sovereignty must be conditional on appropriate behaviour.” This is to say, that any country in the world only has the right to its own sovereignty if it supports the agenda of the United States and Israel. But who is the arbiter of this “appropriate behaviour”?  On its human rights record alone Israel falls at the first hurdle. The suggestion that law and justice be done away in order to round up those suspected of terrorism or those having an opinion different to the oligarchies of America and Israel, is exactly what has happened in the United States, serving the interests of Israel admirably. It is no wonder that this occupying force is suckling at the teat of its imperial mother.

13 years later we see that much of the scripted action from which Efrayim Halevi was reading has come about because this is exactly what these two nations wanted: the clash of civilisations in order to justify a Greater Israel rising up from the ashes. And what a dangerous game they are playing.

As we saw in The Rape of a Nation the U.S. army is mirroring the exact same torture and oppression upon the Iraqi citizens that the Israeli military had been carrying out on Palestinian people for decades. Indeed, it is highly likely that the interrogation tactics bare an uncanny likeness to those favoured by the MOSSAD. A report in Chicago’s Daily Star by Ali Abunimah confirms that “the head of the American defense contracting firm implicated in the torture of Iraqis at Abu Ghraib prison has close ties to Israel and visited an Israeli “anti-terror” training camp in the occupied West Bank earlier this year.” Washington may have secured security contracts in exchange for interrogation tactics, though this is likely to have been only one in a multitude of advantages. [6]

According to a Red Cross report where 90 percent of Iraqi prisoners were “held in error,” we are supposed to be outraged at this shocking revelation never before practiced under the sanctity of dear old Uncle Sam. [7] It is shocking in its inhumanity yet wholly predictable as an expression of the “Art” of War and propaganda. In truth, practices such as these have been a tried and trusted formula by intelligence agencies the world over. One example was the 2004 murder of the so called telecommunications “freelancer” and possible MOSSAD pawn/agent, Nick Berg who was decapitated on video by so called Al-Qaeda extremists. Look a little closer and none of the elements add up. The video was very likely staged by pro-American forces within Abu Gharib itself to arouse anger toward Iraqi insurgents with Berg possibly unaware that his own simulated death would in fact turn out to be real. [8]

The MOSSAD chief is part of a chain of command that is drawn from exactly the same mentality. It reaches down to the those who initiate torture and up to the pleasant surroundings of a NATO pedestal, singing the same atonal tune, dressed up suits, handshakes and cynical smiles. With more counterterrorism operations and requisite attacks carried out by conscious or unconscious agents within Al-Qaeda the end result is a rapid implementation of further draconian laws on domestic soil and further regime change in vulnerable nations so that resources may be exploited.

What objectives has Israel set herself upon this map via the tentacles of MOSSAD and the fulfilment of its maxim: “By Deception Thou Shalt do War”? *  Perhaps it would be useful here to remind ourselves of the nature of MOSSAD – The Institute for Intelligence and Special Tasks.


ben gurion-horz

David Ben Gurion August 16th, 1948

“History is not written, history is created”

David BenGurion.


The MOSSAD (Hebrew for “institute”) was created on 1 April 1951 by the then Prime Minister David Ben Gurion. Intelligence collection, covert operations and counter terrorism make up the driving force of its activities. Its focus is obviously directed towards Arab nations though all worldwide organizations fall under its influence. MOSSAD agents are active in all countries and organizations it considers of strategic importance to its national, ideological and economic interests. (This also includes the United Nations which seems to be tossed from one intelligence agency to the next according to what vote or veto is required). Its headquarters are based in Tel Aviv with a staff numbering around 1200 with Tamir Pardo currently acting as Director. There are officially eight departments which comprise:

  • Collections Dept. – Espionage Operations
  • Political Action and Liaison Dept. – With “friendly” foreign intelligence agencies where normal diplomatic relations are not officially recognized.
  • Special Operations Division – Also known as Metsada involving assassinations, PSYOPS, sabotage, paramilitary etc.
  • Technology Dept. – advanced technology development for MOSSAD operations.
  • LAP (Lohamah Psichologit) Dept. – PSYOPS, propaganda and general deception.
  • Research Dept. – Round the clock intelligence collation/production which is organized into 15 geographically specialized sections including the USA, Canada and Western Europe, Latin America, Former Soviet Union, China Africa, the Maghreb, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. A “nuclear” desk and special weapons are also included.[9]

Needless to say, top factions within the global intelligence services have never had the best interests of humanity at heart and MOSSAD is no different, though its willingness to be place the world on an apocalyptic chopping block may eventually outstrip even its own expertise in deception. One way which has allowed Israel to get the upper hand in the Intel world is by outsourcing its intelligence.  Victor Ostrovsky’s first book By Way of Deception (1990) – a publication Jewish lobbyists managed to get banned from most retail outlets – has a passage regarding MOSSAD local assistants or sayanim operating in Western countries. He states that the sayanim:

“[are] a unique and important part of the MOSSAD’s operation. Sayanim assistants must be 100 per cent Jewish. They live abroad, and though they are not Israeli citizens, many are reached through their relatives in Israel. An Israeli with a relative in England, for example, might be asked to write a letter saying the person bearing the letter represents an organization whose main goal is to help save Jewish people in the diaspora. Could the British relative help in any way?”

Ostrovsky further explains:

There are thousands of sayanim around the world. In London alone, there are about 2,000 who are active, and another 5,000 on the list. They fulfil many different roles. A car sayan, for example, running a rental agency, could help the MOSSAD rent a car without having to complete the usual documentation. An apartment sayan would find accommodation without raising suspicions, a bank sayan could get you money if you needed it in the middle of the night, a doctor sayan would treat a bullet wound without reporting it to the police, and so on. The idea is to have a pool of people available when needed who can provide services but will keep quiet about them out of loyalty to the cause. They are paid only costs. Often the loyalty of sayanim is abused by katsas who take advantage of the available help for their own personal use. There is no way for the sayan to check this.

One thing you know for sure is that even if a Jewish person knows it is the MOSSAD, he might not agree to work with you, but he won’t turn you in. You have at your disposal a non risk recruitment system that actually gives you a pool of millions of Jewish people to tap from outside your own borders. It’s much easier to operate with what is available on the spot, and sayanim offer incredible practical support everywhere. But they are never put at risk, nor are they privy to classified information. […]

Some business sayanim have a bank of 20 operators answering phones, typing letters, faxing messages, all a front for the MOSSAD. The joke is that 60 per cent of the business of those telephone answering companies in Europe comes from the MOSSAD. They’d fold otherwise. […]

the MOSSAD regards the whole world outside Israel as a target, including Europe and the United States. Most of the Arab countries don’t manufacture their own weapons. Most don’t have high-level military colleges, for example. If you want to recruit a Syrian diplomat, you don’t have to do that in Damascus. You can do it in Paris. If you want data on an Arab missile, you get that in Paris or London or the United States where it is made. You can get less information on Saudi Arabia from the Saudis themselves than you can from the Americans. [Emphasis mine]

Low-level intelligence assets as a 120 member Israeli spy-ring posing as art students was reported in Fox News in December 2001. [10] They were said to have sold paintings door to door, turning up at offices and even buildings where federal departments were located, hob-knobbing with federal employees and forming friendships and closer relationships in order to gain access to phone lines for tapping and database infiltration. They were arrested and deported under a haze of embarrassment and for obvious reasons as quietly as possible. True to form, the MSM allowed the report to die down without too much fuss. Fox News dropped it from its own archives within short two weeks without any explanation.

The actual source of the story was a Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) draft report from their intelligence division which was subsequently leaked to the media. The DEA is known to have purchased communications equipment worth around $100 million from Israeli businesses over five years previously which could account for Israeli agents buzzing around the agency as well as a wealth of information on the drug wars which services many CIA operatives and go-betweens. These would be useful bargaining chips for MOSSAD. The report also detailed how the trial led back to many Israel telephone subcontracting companies which were deemed worthy of investigation again leading to the “back door access” software systems of PROMIS. What is even more incredible is the little wrinkle of an address where five of the Israeli “art students” were living, namely, at 4220 Sheridan St, Hollywood, Florida, where Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker had also lived.

The U.S. military analysts have been noticing the degree to which MOSSAD may have been using the U.S. as a Disney World of “false flag” ** possibilities with or without America’s consent, depending on which “need to know” tier one focuses on. Indeed, 9/11 may have been MOSSAD’s ultimate coup d’état – the final false flag in a long succession of deceptions with the primary objective to lay the blame at the PLO or Arab states whenever possible: “In 1982 just when the PLO had abandoned the use of terrorism, the MOSSAD spread disinformation about “terrorist attacks” on Israeli settlements along the northern border in order to justify a full-scale military invasion of Lebanon. Years later, even leading Israeli spokesman such as former Foreign Minister Abba Eban admitted that the reports of “PLO terrorism” had been contrived by the MOSSAD.” [11]

“Under cover” death squad assassinations of Palestinian political figures, including the bounty on Arafat which, although eventually retracted, did not prevent his death through poisoning from radioactive plutonium. This played an increasing part in the worldwide condemnation of Israel. Assassinations of Hamas leaders Sheikh Yassin and Dr. Abdel Aziz could well be part of a long term strategy to not only incite revenge filled violence against Israel, but also against the United States. Just as we had a merging together of Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein as another pretext for the invasion of Iraq and neither of whom had nothing whatsoever to do with each other or the 9/11 attacks.

Once again, we have a further merging of the PLO and Palestinians as Al-Qaeda to serve another phase in the wholesale eradication of Palestinian rights. This is especially ironic since Israeli intelligence had a hand in creating Hamas in the first place. In the words of Charles Freeman, a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, “Israel started Hamas. It was a project of Shin Bet, which had a feeling that they could use it to hem in the PLO.” While Anthony Cordesman, a Middle East analyst for the Center for Strategic Studies, states that Israel “aided Hamas directly—the Israelis wanted to use it as a counterbalance to the PLO.” [12] And what a wonderful tool for demonising Arabs it has turned out to be. Without the so-called religiously infused terrorism of Hamas, Israel would have even less justification for committing genocide against the Palestinians.

 palestine_terrorist

From an Israeli press release showing “Palestinian terrorists” with the Star of David peeking through his shirt | ‘Israelis shoot militant in Nablus’ “Ibrahim Smeri, 23, was killed by members of a special unit disguised as Arabs, Palestinian sources said.” [BBC News]

The occupied territories are not the only focus for “targeted killings” as they are euphemistically known. MOSSAD’s Special Operations Dept. or Metsada has been busy across the world with numerous individuals targeted, weaving in and out of the CIA’s zones of influence. As a consequence of this and its general intransigence regarding human rights violations, international support before the 9/11 attacks were significantly waning for Israel. The collusion of the U.S. and Israel in some kind of high level pact to orchestrate a spectacular “shared interest initiative” seems ever more likely. The parallels of 9/11 with Pearl harbour are noteworthy. The Americans knew before-hand that the Japanese were going to attack and they were prepared to sacrifice many lives for big business and economic interests. Just as the Neo-Cons may have known and indeed oiled the wheels of Israel’s massive deception from a catalogue of evidence, we can see that the MOSSAD may have taken on the role of a covert “Japanese fleet” from within taking their cues from a U.S. executive shadow government guidance system.

Immediately after the attacks U.S. public opinion shaped by the Jewish dominated media swung in favour of Israel. The sustained uprisings by Palestinians have been clouded with a manufactured/exacerbated threat of an Islamic Jihad, the reality of which is also responding to the far right patriotic fervour that is infecting societal instincts and becoming the mainstay of rigid belief systems. The attacks do not serve non-Arab groups interests though they serve Israel and America’s interests right across the board, economically, geo-politically, and ideologically. What must also be kept in mind across the whole sorry state of geopolitical affairs are the activities of a secret cult extending through the U.S. shadow government and with extensions throughout the web of a covert world government, its formidable roots lodged within the CIA, though clearly only one faction jostling for supremacy. [13]

One report on an Army study published by PhD students a day before September 11 attacks referred to Israel’s armed forces as a “500-pound gorilla in Israel” that is “well armed and trained” and is “known to disregard international law to accomplish mission.” Of the MOSSAD, the report says: “Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target US forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.” [14]

* According to some linguists a more accurate translation is: “wage, or waging war through terror. (ism)”or “with clandestine terrorism we will conduct war.” Either way, both hands seem to be firmly in the international cookie jar.

** “False flag terrorism” describes an act orchestrated by elements within a government to carry out a covert operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. The attack is then falsely blamed on the enemy in order to justify going to war against that enemy. These covert “black ops” are conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations with the public being the primary casualty in the war of perception management. The name is derived from flying false colours whereby a military force flies the flag of a country other than its own. False flag operations take place during war and counter-insurgency but there are plenty of examples of false flag attacks taking place in peacetime such as Stay-at-home armies of Operation Gladio and many other separate examples.

[8] The video of Nick Berg’s execution remains one of the most shocking spectacles ever to have been seen on the internet. Sawing a man’s head off is not something anyone would want to see, yet from a PSYOPS perspective it created an enormous justification for American torture and Israeli victimhood. Al-Qaeda secondf in command al-Zarqawi was accused of being the instigator. There are several immediate points which suggest this is a poorly carried out PSYOPS.
At the time torture was a hot issue in the context of the war in Iraq, Abu Ghraib and the CIA waterboarding. The Bush Administration and Israel benefitted hugely from this act.
Berg was traveling alone, without a translator or a bodyguard, in a highly dangerous country land whose language he barely understood. He carried books about Iran and kept inventories of Iraqi communications towers prime indicators of Israel intelligence or at least sayanim status.
Both the Iraqi police and the American military deny responsibility for Mr. Berg’s detention.
In the video the supposed terrorists executing the Jewish American seem to be taller – stockier – and fatter that most Islamist terrorists and are wearing bullet-proof jackets which is very American. They are also yell and scream like American soldiers before a football game just prior to the beheading. According to CNN the voices don’t match From CNN: “The Web site said the killing had been carried out by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of an Islamist terrorist group that has claimed responsibility for numerous attacks on coalition forces in Iraq. The voice on the tape could not be verified as that of al-Zarqawi. CNN staffers familiar with al-Zarqawi’s voice said the voice on the tape did not sound like him.”
Nick Berg is wearing an orange prison jump suit, the same jumpsuits to be found in Iraqi POW abuse pictures at Abu Ghraib prison. We also have a concerte building and fluorescent lighting and even the same furniture as we would find in Abu Ghraib.

Outsourcing Abuse III: Dyncorp, Plan Colombia and Private Armies

By M.K. Styllinski

plan-colombia

“America provides the guns, Colombia provides the dead.”

“The pretext of Al-Qaeda infesting the country was used. It was the same propaganda employed in the invasion of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Syria and most of Africa –  in fact,  any other country which has bountiful resources. As the US government retained control, Dyncorp was airlifted in with a fat $10 million contract in the following year for “peacekeeping” and “logistical support,” thus replacing the more costly presence of US combat forces. In other words, this was a proxy army to complete the proxy government.”


Before we return to the topic of Establishment child rape networks I want to continue with the legacy of Dyncorp and other private security firms as outposts of an emerging Pathocracy.  They are important nodes in the expansion of a bankrupt empire and their links to covert drug and the sex trade. Inevitably these companies always have links back to the original source of pathological disease. Dyncorp’s role in Latin America and in particular Colombia is instructive in this regard.

impactos-del-plan-colombia-en-ecuadorThe Free Trade agreements of the Americas walked over the remains of the dead economies of South America, hacked off at the roots by years of U.S. interventionism and later under the auspices of the IMF and World Bank. The colonization has changed but is on schedule and Dyncorp is right in the thick of it to ensure its completion.

The U.S. $1.3 billion Plan Colombia was one example. Critics said that the corporation was involved in “counter insurgency” operations in the war on drugs as well as the monopolisation of oil interests in the region. Paramilitaries and mercenaries are co-mingling in a mix of dirty interests. The corporation’s activities also extend into Bolivia and Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Brazil and Panama where it is also carries out drug interdiction, transport, reconnaissance, search and rescue missions, medical evacuation and aircraft maintenance.

The fact that President Bush had substantial ties to Harken Energy Inc., of Houston, Texas, is well known. Bush Jr. opted for a comfortable desk job with the company in 1986 and received $2 million in stock options, a $122,000 consulting job and a seat on its board of directors for his trouble. Meanwhile, in the Magdalena Valley where Harken Energy and other oil companies peddle their business, right wing paramilitary groups comprising of Colombian military officers, drug traffickers, cattle ranchers and fighting guerrillas are paid to protect oil pipelines. Civilians in Colombia have become the prime targets as rapacious parties compete for territory. The murder of peasants is common place if they do not respond to threats and intimidation to leave land targeted for mining, oil exploration and agriculture. Harken continued to rake in the cash on the backs of dead civilians in the Magdalena Valley, with help from the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation.

Paramilitaries protected corporate interests in the region. Death squads operated on behalf of U.S. oil companies and political parties, which were closely entwined in a network of intelligence agencies with the CIA as the guiding hand. After all, Colombia is both the leading recipient of US military aid in the hemisphere and the worst violator of human rights. Connection?

“Plan Colombia” was inflicted on the country for ill-advised reasons during President Bill Clinton’s presidency. The $1.3 billion aid package which was mostly military aid to Colombia and its neighbours, was to usher in “peace, prosperity, and the strengthening of the state” [1] by proposing a military strategy to stop illicit drug cultivation and trafficking. The plan was to be carried out by providing military assistance to the Colombian armed forces and police, and the creation of three anti-narcotics army battalions. However, aside from a slight drop in cocoa plant production, it did none of those things. What it actually did was to build on the destabilisation in the region thanks to 1990s Reaganomic policies and to “increase the dispersion and proliferation of organized crime and the expansion and intensification of political crime and guerrilla warfare.” [2] The plan served to increase politically motivated killings and where “counter-narcotics operations in Plan Colombia fail[ed] to target drugs cultivation in areas under long-standing paramilitary control.” [3]

After a whopping expenditure of $4.72 billion from 2000-2006 with $3.84 billion (81 percent) going to Colombia’s military and police forces, things have only got worse. The reason being, over 50 percent of Colombia’s land is owned by paramilitaries, the monopoly of which is drawn from the paramilitary control of members of Colombia’s Congress at around 30 percent.  It suggests that the CIA, true to its colours, wished to gain control of an important financial resource rather than to decrease its influence in any genuine way.

Dyncorp wasn’t the only one slicing into the pie. AirScan, a based in Rockledge, Florida provides High-Tec air surveillance and is responsible for patrolling the Colombian jungle in Cessna Skymaster electronic surveillance planes, spotting coca plantations and guerrilla threats to the Cano Limon oil pipeline. Military Professional Resources Inc. based in Alexandria, Virginia provides a consultancy service run by former US generals. Its mercenaries were responsible for training the Colombian Army and police officers. An Alabama company working out of the Maxwell Air-force base, Aviation Development Corporation (ADC) flies Cessna spotter planes for the CIA in Peru and Colombia to help target aircraft used by drug smugglers.

Cocaine monopolisation: Funding American interests

It was this latter company that caused a brief headache for the PR branches protecting the so called “drug war” when a small plane carrying US missionaries was shot down in Peru by a military pilot killing a young woman and her seven-month-old baby girl. The missionaries’ plane was first spotted by a US Cessna Citation surveillance plane piloted not by the US military but by private contractors hired by ADC. This echoed the shooting down of a Dyncorp helicopter and the subsequent rescue of its pilots by their own search and rescue teams which culminated in a shoot-out with the rebel Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia. Nothing like a spot of Hollywood intrigue to keep the shareholders happy.

Another minor glitch in its operations was discovered in late 2001 when online news journal The Nation managed to obtain a document of a monthly DEA intelligence report from May 2000 in which officers of Colombia’s National Police force intercepted a US-bound Federal Express package at Bogota’s El Dorado International Airport with a parcel containing two small bottles of a “thick liquid” with the same consistency as “motor oil”. The communiqué reported that: “… the liquid substance ‘tested positive for heroin’ and that the ‘alleged heroin laced liquid weighed approximately 250 grams.’” DynCorp spokeswoman Janet Wineriter stated:  “… the viscous liquid that the Colombians tested was not, in fact, laced with heroin; it was simply “oil samples of major aircraft components’ that DynCorp technicians are required to take and send to the US ‘on a periodic basis.’ ” [4]

While the package was traced back to an unnamed employee of Dyncorp who was sending it on to the Andean operations headquarters at Patrick Air Force Base, Florida, the government and Dyncorp were tight-lipped regarding details as to why this was entirely innocent and the result of faulty testing equipment. After a slippery tossing of the hot potato between the US Embassy, the Colombian National Police Force (CNP) the DEA and the Colombian State Department (and of course Dyncorp) the problem was shoved under a decidedly rank carpet courtesy of the CNP whose forensic unit decided it prudent not to pursue the matter.

The testing equipment called NARCOTEX was to all intents and purposes, also found to be bogus by the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s Drug Recognition Experts. They could find no evidence of drug technology with that name. A token military doffing of its hat towards those that were intent on its eradication, was all that was needed. (Like the “War on Terror,” the “War on Drugs” is also largely bogus, a topic we will return to much later).

Dyncorp’s presence in Latin America has stuck like mud against the aspirations of its inhabitants since the early 1990s. It was during one of its contracts for helicopter maintenance that some of the long held suspicions about the multinational were further confirmed when one of those helicopters crashed in the Peruvian jungle in 1992. On board were three DynCorp employees, including Robert Hitchman, a covert-ops specialist, who had worked for the CIA in a number of operations ranging from the CIA front, “Air America,” to Libyan black-ops for Colonel Kaddafi. Hitchman was in fact, flying DEA agents and the Peruvian military on missions into guerrilla territory to destroy cocaine labs and coordinate the herbicide spraying program. True to Dyncorp services, he was also training Peruvian pilots to fly combat missions.[5] Colombia was to be a much more extensive capturing of a country’s destiny where Colombian army, paramilitary groups and toxic spraying and fumigation would be stepped up to a degree that would pay big money to ex-military veterans and black ops personnel.

 fumigaciones

Toxic spraying and fumigation

As part of this propaganda the corporation dutifully and profitably went about its $200 million[6] contract to spray 2,550 Square miles of Colombia with Monsanto’s “Round-Up Ultra” herbicide from 2000-2005, under the pretext of eliminating the illegal cocoa crops. An environmental disaster loaded on yet more suffering for the Colombian peoples already being squeezed by Bogota and the U.S. government. With 82 percent of the population living under the poverty line, growing their own food would have been one possibility to feed their families, when they often have no option but to grow cocoa for the insatiable demand in the States.

While a class-action lawsuit was filed in Washington, DC, on behalf of 10,000 farmers in Ecuador and the AFL-CIO-related International Labour Rights Fund, (ILRF) it may not save the thousands of children already suffering the effects of fumigation and spraying. After the initial veiled threats from Dyncorp CEO Paul V. Lombardi, towards Bishop Jesse DeWitt president of ILRF, the lawsuit for indigenous Quiches and farmers from the state of Sucumbío, Dyncorp subsequently used its State Department leverage to ask “…the judge to dismiss the case because it involves national security interests of the United States.” Luckily the Judge after consulting material derived from an investigation by Ecuador’s Acción Ecológica came to the conclusion that Dyncorp had “committed crimes against humanity, torture and cultural genocide.” [7] This ruling finally led to the 2003 court rulings ordering the suspension of aerial fumigation of coca and poppy crops until environmental and human impact studies can be carried out.

However, in clear violation of Colombian law, President Alvare Uribe, a U.S. puppet, continues to do the State Department’s bidding and the spraying has continued. According to Narco News, a Latin American journal that reports on the drug war and (the lack of) democracy in Latin America: “Food crops have been destroyed, rainforest ravaged, tens of thousands of peasants have been displaced because their crops, livestock and water sources have been poisoned.” [8]

Colombia’s armed conflict is the longest-running guerrilla war in the Americas, and with U.S. involvement, shows no signs of decreasing in intensity. According to the Women’s Commission for Refugee Women and Children, in 2002 alone “an estimated 5,000 to 6,000 civilians were killed in fighting; were targeted in political assassinations or were ‘disappeared.’ By comparison, the death toll was 3,000 to 3,500 in the previous year and where 4,077 children suffered violent deaths, including political violence and common crime, according to the Colombian Ombudsman’s Office (Ombudsman, Defensoría del Pueblo).” [9]

The crux of the problem in the declining fortunes of the Colombian people and the next generation of children being born into such chaos is U.S. sponsorship and support of guerrilla groups, paramilitaries, government armed forces and national police that have consistently perpetrated violence and abuses against civilians, particularly children and adolescents. There is widespread grievous bodily harm (GPH) and instances of rape in conflict and in domestic life.

Human Rights Watch place the incidences of rape of adolescent girls as 2.5 per every 1,000 young women. “Rape, sexual torture and other forms of sexual violence against women and girls are used as tactics to destabilize the population.” Despite a 2006, $20 million budget to help fund Colombia’s paramilitary demobilization process; the commercial sex trade is gaining ground, with estimates ranging from 20,000 to 35,000 children forced into commercial sexual work. [10] A steady unchecked business in arms trafficking and an equally plentiful supply of child soldiers parallels the figure of over 3 million children who do not attend school. A high percentage of indigenous and Afro-Colombian child soldiers of Between 11,000 and 14,000 are often targeted for recruitment. The U.S. State Department becomes uncharacteristically silent on the subject of support for Uribe and government armed forces that are known to use children as informants and “counter-insurgency” propaganda activities. [11]

Former president Álvaro Uribe Vélez

Paramilitary leaders unilaterally declared a cease-fire in late 2002, with much trumpeting of the U.S. negotiations which were heralded as more evidence of the US bending over backwards to “assist.” If we look deeper, this “assistance” represents more attempts to find ways to circumvent the maze of interests that continue to carve up Colombia. Most paramilitary leaders at the negotiating table are there due to the possibility of extradition to the U.S. under the demobilisation laws and are haggling away their wealth that was illegally-acquired. Paramilitaries and drug barons are putting themselves forward as human bargaining chips to avoid imprisonment should the need arise. In truth, before 2005, demobilization had not been enforced due to the absence of a legal framework and served to act as yet another sop for Congress. Human Rights Watch reported in 2004: “…the government has been holding ceremonies in which thousands of purported paramilitaries turn over their weapons and become eligible to receive stipends and other benefits. As a result, there is a real risk that the current demobilization process will leave the underlying structures of these violent groups intact, their illegally acquired assets untouched, and their abuses unpunished.” [12]

The U.S. and the European Union actively encouraged the tragically misplaced naming of “Ley de Justicia y Paz” (Justice and Peace Law) while the United Nations Security Council sheepishly turned a blind eye. The Colombian Congress dutifully passed in June 2005 the legal framework for the demobilization of the paramilitary United Self-Defence Forces of Colombia (AUC), the worst Human rights offender responsible for 80 percent of the most appalling abuses country-wide. They have been a dominant factor in the drug trade with various AUC leaders being extradited to the United States for prosecution on drug trafficking charges. Prison sentences are limited to a maximum of eight years and prosecutors are given a very limited leeway in which to present their charges. Big-wig criminals including drug barons are often blurring the lines between paramilitary groups. It means that they are protected from extradition to the United States by legal semantics and loopholes. Furthermore, safe in the assurance that they will be protected from the harsh realities of their crimes, the turning in of arms amounts to window dressing for Congress and NGO’s because they will not be required to reveal information about the paramilitary financing and methods. On top of this, they will not be detained for any undue length of time.

The CIA and its corporate covers in the monopolisation of the drug wars wish to hold onto and protect their assets while expanding and mopping up drug operations. Drug lords are bought off and given immunity in exchange for their illegal wealth while ex-paramilitaries are “re-integrated” back into the community. The latter means, of course, that these psychopaths have been hired back into the national police and army with a ridiculous assurance that no arms will be given to these men. Given Colombia’s record, this is nonsense. It is also an interesting example of the U.S. predilection for recycling military and special ops personnel back into its cover corporations abroad. We may well have the same practice happening in Colombia, with the priority going to private security firms, replicating the standards that Dyncorp is now so famous for. It seems everyone is a winner, except that is, the citizens of Colombia and its lost children. After all, mechanics, trainers, maintenance and administrative workers, logistics experts, rescuers and pilots and CIA agents with fat pay packets are all busy helping to fleece what is left of the country on a variety of support operations. For Dyncorp and CSC, exploitation ratios are its primary measure of success.

In an article by Journalist Uri Dowbenko he includes an explication of the financial mechanics behind Dyncorp’s free reign in the “War on Drugs” propaganda. Catherine Austin Fitts, former FHA Commissioner in the Bush Sr. Administration and former CEO of Hamilton Securities outlines how they do it where she refers to the creation of Stock Value or Capital Gains as “Pop” in Wall Street jargon:

If DynCorp has a $60 million per year contract supporting knowledge management for asset seizures in the United States,” she says. “The current proxy shows that they value their stock, which they buy and sell internally, at approximately 30 times earnings. So, if a contract has a 5-10percent profit, then per $100 million of contracts, DynCorp makes about $5-$10 million, which translates into $150 million to $300 million of stock value. That means that for a $200 million contract, with average earnings of 5-10percent ($10 million to $20 million), DynCorp is generating $300 million to $600 million of stock value.

Pug Winokur of Capricorn Holdings appears to have about 5 percent ownership, which means that his partnerships’ stock value increase $15-$30 million from the War in Colombia. If the DynCorp team kills 100 people, as an example, then that means they make $1.5 – $3 million per death. That way the Pop per Dead Colombian can be estimated, or, how much capital gains can be made from killing one Colombian. Since DynCorp was also in the Gulf and in Kosovo, we should be able to calculate the relative value of killing people in various cultures and nationalities. Pug Winokur’s partnership, under these assumptions, makes $75,000 to $250,000 of Pop per Dead Colombian. [13]

Of course, Bush’s anti-terror bill injected more financial aid to President Alvare Uribe’s right-wing government and managed to destroy much of the progress on human rights of the last few decades. It also smoothed the way for a doubling of the number of US troops and US contractors allowed in Colombia such as Dyncorp and Textron (the military helicopter firm) which continued from 2005 to 2009. The displacement of an already acutely oppressed people has reached 3 million and is worsening as a direct result of U.S. policy and the outsourcing of its global agenda.

Dyncorp is nothing more than the extension of the Pentagon’s foreign policy strategies from Bosnia to Colombia, Somalia to Haiti. Regime change required? Then call in a private security firm to sow the seeds of discontent by arming and training the waiting oppositions. This is exactly what happened when Somalia had the briefest window of opportunity for a democratic peace. After warlords had controlled the country for over fifteen years the Islamic Courts Union (ICU) had managed to wrest control from these chaotic and bloody factions during the summer of 2006. Despite the very real chance of a respite from war and carnage the US was in the region busily training Ethiopian troops who then invaded Somalia in December of that year backed up by US air raids.

The pretext of Al-Qaeda infesting the country was used. It was the same propganda employed in the invasion of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Syria and most of Africa –  in fact,  any other country which has bountiful resources. As the US proxy government was placed back into power Dyncorp was airlifted in with a fat $10 million contract in the following year for “peacekeeping” and “logistical support,” thus replacing the more costly presence of US combat forces. In other words, this was a proxy army to complete the proxy government. [14]

After the CIA-backed coup in Haiti and the toppling of Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide, Dyncorp was drafted in by the U.S. State Department to protect Boniface Alexandre, yet another US puppet wheeled into to their bidding.  Dyncorp is now busy training police in the country. [15]

The U.N. General Assembly adopted the International Convention against the Recruitment, Use, Financing and Training of Mercenaries in 1989 where around nineteen states ratified the Convention and nine states have signed but have yet to ratify. This followed with a further amendment to the convention in 1992 which was similarly ignored. It was also declared that “the use of mercenaries is a threat to international peace and security,” and that all were “Deeply concerned about the menace that the activities of mercenaries represent for all States, particularly African and other developing States” as well as “Profoundly alarmed at the continued international criminal activities of mercenaries in collusion with drug traffickers…” [16] At least three of the countries are officially known to have flouted the Convention. [17] The twenty-two States that have completed the constitutional procedures that bind them to the Convention are: Azerbaijan, Barbados, Belarus, Cameroon, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Georgia, Italy, Libya, Maldives, Mauritania, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Seychelles, Suriname, Togo, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uruguay and Uzbekistan. The nine other States that have signed but not ratified it are: Angola, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Germany, Morocco, Nigeria, Poland, Romania, Yugoslavia and … The United States. [18]

The extent of this indignation and concern was shown in the 1997 report by the UN Special Rapporteur on mercenaries regarding the growth market in mercenary activity: “In what appears to be a new international trend, legally registered companies are providing security, advisory and military training to the armed forces and police of legitimate Governments. There have been complaints that some of these companies recruit mercenaries and go beyond advisory and instruction work to become involved in military combat and taking over political, economic and financial matters in the country served.” [19] With the United States maintaining a military presence in 148 of the 192 United Nations countries, it is set to remain both a lucrative and controversial field of activity well into the future. [20]0921-indep

While Dyncorp’s associations with the UN already reek of hypocrisy, these naïve protestations are further laid bare when we realize that Lifeguard Security, a company linked to Executive Outcomes, a U.K. mercenary company, was responsible for guarding U.N. offices and residences in Sierra Leone’s capital of Freetown in 2004. The refusal of the U.K. a major manufacturer of weapons and source of mercenaries to sign the Convention was given an embarrassing exercise in exposition with the Equatorial Guinea Mercenaries Coup affair. Sir Mark Thatcher and Simon Mann’s forays into the arms business were highlighted in spectacular fashion, revealing an industry that rarely gets a mention yet is so instrumental in the destinies of government coups everywhere. [21]

Let’s have a brief look at some of these companies.

The Vinnell Corporation, part of the Northrop-Grumman merger in 2000, employs ex-military and CIA personnel as well as having close connections with concurrent U.S. administrations. It has had a contractual relationship to train the Saudi Arabian National Guard since 1975. This led to Bush condemning an attack in Riyadh in May 2003 that killed at least 30 people. it was blamed, of course, on Al-Qaeda.

True to the infantile propaganda that is circulating so effectively via the U.S. media every violent event and atrocity is traced back to the insidious tentacles of Osama Bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda network. This is very often the role of security companies such as Vinnell that act as foreign policy enforcers. They are there to prop up the regime and to keep dissidents at bay, hence they become targets. This is not dissimilar to the “insurgents” in Iraq who attack those intent on planting bombs and creating the seeds of a civil war. Under cover of chaos it is far easier to go about your business of fleecing the countries resources and laying plans for future geo-political monopolies. The terror wars are fuelling the security business growth and in turn, it is ensuring that terrorism remains a global menace, much to the delight of arms dealers everywhere. Companies such as Vance International specialize in American corporate executives travelling overseas, wealthy foreigners visiting the United States and the extravagance of Hollywood stars. It is renowned for using mostly ex-military men for “asset protection.”

Global Options which provides high-end security, intelligence and investigative services, billing itself as a “private CIA, FBI, State Department and Justice Department wrapped up into one.” Not forgetting its emphasis on “defending corporate America” which should fill us all with confidence. [22] Control Risk Grp.,  and MPRI  specialise in providing training mercenaries for armies worldwide. Although many corporations would feign incredulity at such heinous accusations, security corporations all provide services of “risk mitigation” and “executive or asset protection;” hired by governments, intelligence agencies and the 1% elite to do their dirty work outside of Congressional or Parliamentary oversight. Which makes Sandline International CEO Tim Spicer’s attempt to take the moral high ground particularly ridiculous. With the winding up of his company’s operations he left a petulant message on his now defunct website bemoaning lack of “government support”:

“On 16 April 2004 Sandline International announced the closure of the company’s operations. The general lack of governmental support for Private Military Companies willing to help end armed conflicts in places like Africa, in the absence of effective international intervention, is the reason for this decision. Without such support the ability of Sandline to make a positive difference in countries where there is widespread brutality and genocidal behaviour is materially diminished.”

The reality was that Sandline got caught red-handed doing what it shouldn’t and the government pulled up the ladders and claimed no knowledge which is what they do. The fact that an historical Western corporatism and its pathocratic enablers are the original cause of endemic corruption and destablisation within those countries also seems to have escaped the colonel’s worldview.

Other security contractors making mega-bucks in 2014 include:

  • Erinys – guarded most of Iraq’s vital oil assets
  • Academi – (formerly Blackwater and Xe) owns and runs one of the most advanced private military training facilities in the world.
  • Unity Resources Group – active in the Middle East, Africa, the Americas and Asia
  • Triple Canopy – won a security contract in Iraq worth up to $1.5 billion
  • Aegis Defense Service – works with the UN, US, and oil companies
  • Defion Internacional – recruits thousands of fighters from developing countries
  • G4S (orginaly known as the Wackenhut Corp.) –  the largest security contractor in the world that has it’s dirty fingers in most of the globes conflicts.  (more on Wackenhut’s history in the next post)

Ethics are not going to be top of the list in any of these businesses that would clearly kill the local nursery teacher if the contract fee was high enough.  What is more, the nature of the US Army and Navy means that they are chock full of the kinds of psychological profiles most attracted to such work which would include psychopaths, sociopaths, jackals and skirtoids which are then used as the pool from which private security firms draw their personnel. Former FBI agents, intelligence directors, Delta-Force, Air-Force, SWAT, Army Intelligence operatives, Secret Service agents, CIA veterans, Navy Seals and ex-Marines – you name it, the demand is there for such men and women. Security services and mercenaries for hire act as funnels to the US military and secret service in order to save money, resources and to actualise foreign policy moves beyond the radar of independent media and the public. Remember of course at a certain level, there is no such thing as a former FBI or CIA agent or any government intelligence operative.

As controversy about rendition and torture continues to bubble, private security firms are merging with the free-market to produce a boom in private finance deals both in Europe as well as the US Private-sector firms are even sponsoring academics and researchers and helping to formulate government penal and criminal justice policy, no doubt tailored towards an increasing reliance on profit over public interest. Stephen Nathan, editor of Prison Privatisation Report International said, regarding then Denmark-based Group 4 and its services: “The increasing influence of the private sector in the criminal justice system means shareholders’ interests come first. Who shapes criminal justice policy? Is it professionals, politicians and the public? Or is it Group 4 shareholders?” [23]

Though the tired suggestion that it is simply market forces and intense competition that has led to the prison services adopting more aggressively commercial approaches, this does not address the issue of rising crime rates of young offenders. For those ready to provide the means to sweep problems out of sight and out of mind it promises to remains an unending money-spinner.

 


End Note: This particular piece was written almost a decade ago. Since that time, Dyncorp International has certainly smartened up its PR and marketing. It has a slick website and a special “Social Responsibility” section and even an “A” rating on the Defence Companies Anti-Corruption Index. Unfortunately, a predator is a predator. While it may do its best to change it’s spots – even extinguish internal corruption and crime about which you will read below –  it is still a corporation which outsources “guns for hire,” complete with logistical and technological know-how. As such, it continues to act as a de-facto arm of the American Empire and fans the flames of conflict simply by doing its job.

The whole idea of US policing the world and is thus an “interference” is a view offered by the progressive left and it is missing the point. It is far worse than this. Companies like Dyncorp are a hugely lucrative part of Corporate America. As the Empire becomes over-stretched, their remit is to facilitate long-term presence in countries through private means. This is not a misguided policy of over-protection and policing, as though this is somehow about good intentions gone awry. It is about the maintenance of a sprawling corporate-security complex offering further geopolitical leverage without committing further troops on the ground. It has the added advantage for military-corporate partnerships to remain a little deeper under the radar when comes to the mainstream media.

The presence of men “addicted to adrenalin” adds to the probability of civil conflict and abuse. Sure enough, this still proves to be the case, despite Dyncorp’s probably genuine attempts at instilling ethics and values training for its office workers. It even supports a children’s charity in the region which, from an historical perspective is truly ironic. Corporate philanthropy and conflict has always gone hand in hand because it’s good PR. But all this is a drop in the ocean when the overarching directive of such companies is destabilisation.  When you have ex-veterans walking around with automatic weapons, hearts pumping and looking for action; roaming around a country that has been destroyed by the very same forces – it’s hardly likely to end well. Corporations working for military, intelligence and US defence attending a children’s charity gala while acting as a stay-behind occupying force won’t work.

What Afghanistan and Iraq really need is ZERO American military presence and CIVILIAN personnel from genuine NGOs who have no political and military affiliations.

Reports in from 2011-2014 suggest that initiatives like Village Stability Operations (ALP) are a euphemism for creating a network of staging posts which maintain a massive presence in regions across Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries formerly trashed by the Anglo-American-Israeli invaders. The only reason these private armies are there is to maintain presence. Re-building infrastructure and assisting the population in recovering from Western aggression only occurs as an incidental practice. The primary objective is to create a country contoured toward Western strategies as they play out in the regions.

Mint Press News reported on the studies by the Congressional Research Service, titled “Afghanistan: Post-Taliban Governance, Security and U.S. Policy”, a report which drew attention to the negative effects private security forces have in regions suffering from civil war, tribal conflict and geopolitical sensitivity. Although, it seems to me that is precisely why such companies are there in the first place …

The report stated:

“An outgrowth of the Village Stability Operations is the Afghan Local Police (ALP) program in which the U.S. Special Operations Forces conducting the Village Stability Operations set up and train local security organs of about 300 members each. These local units are under the control of district police chiefs and each fighter is vetted by a local shura as well as Afghan intelligence. There are about 23,000 ALP operating in nearly 100 districts. A total of 169 districts have been approved for the program, and there are expected to be 30,000 ALP on duty by December 2015. However, the ALP program, and associated and preceding such programs discussed below, were heavily criticized in a September 12, 2011, Human Rights Watch report citing wide-scale human rights abuses (killings, rapes, arbitrary detentions, and land grabs) committed by the recruits. The report triggered a U.S. military investigation that substantiated many of those findings, although not the most serious of the allegations. … In May 2012, Karzai ordered one ALP unit in Konduz disbanded because of its alleged involvement in a rape there. ALP personnel reportedly were responsible for some of the insider attacks in 2012.” [24]

But you won’t hear about that on Dyncorp’s website because outsourcing the empire is unlikely to fade away any time soon. But keep pushing those values and training programs. Who knows? Perhaps that will deliver enough rationalisations for those working within a corporation which actively profits from extending America’s security and logistical reach into resource-rich countries.

We help destroy your country and make money.

Then we help rebuild it and make money.

That way the banksters are also happy. And that, as we know, is all that matters.

The Politics of Entrapment V: Terror-Porn Fusion

“… rates of child sexual abuse have declined substantially since the mid-1990s, a time period that corresponds to the spread of CP online. . . . The fact that this trend is revealed in multiple sources tends to undermine arguments that it is because of reduced reporting or changes in investigatory or statistical procedures. . . . [T]o date, there has not been a spike in the rate of child sexual abuse that corresponds with the apparent expansion of online CP.”

Janis Wolak, David Finkelhor and Kimberly Mitchell (2011). “Child Pornography Possessors: Trends in Offender and Case Characteristics”. Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment 23 (22). doi:10.1177/1079063210372143.


In the UK, new rules exist that oblige doctors and social workers to give the police any information they have about teenagers’ sex lives. The London Child Protection Committee (LCPC) protocol allows child welfare staff an unjustifiable level of interference in the sex lives of teenagers, which could risk breaching the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the right to privacy enshrined in article eight of the convention. Senior lawyer Stephen Groz commented on the new protocol believing that: “It is particularly hard to see what justification there can be for routine assessment – if that is what is intended – in the case of those in the 16-18 year age group, where the prevention of crime will normally afford no justification at all.” [1] Mandatory sentencing where no clear definition of the crime is known is already steaming ahead. According to one expert, 12 and 13 year-old defendants “are being convicted of relatively minor sexual indiscretions in the crown court, and, if the law operates as it is supposed to, being sentenced to custody when it should be a supervision order.” [2]

With over 2,225 child offenders serving life without parole (LWOP) sentences in U.S prisons for crimes committed before they were age 18, [3] it seems Europe is being set to emulate the this direction. It is no surprise that America’s emerging “soft” fascism cloaked under the pretence of liberty is being welcomed by some governments of Europe.

Labour MP David Blunkett (who resigned in 2006 after yet another financial scandal) would likely have called such concerns “airy-fairy” and those seeking a fair and just system as the “enemy.” Blunkett proceeded to remove the presumption of innocence from the Sexual Offences act of 2003, giving a clear and straight road for court cases to be prosecuted successfully without any evidence. This laid greater emphasis on the prosecution state where, as in the US, you are presumed guilty before being proven innocent. This US version of the law paved the way for their fabrications in Operation Ore where an allegation alone was all it took to convict. That is not to say that all of the reforms have been dangerous. On the contrary, many are to be welcomed, yet those that are suspect are so grave that they tend to create difficulties that eclipse glimmers of progress.

Another stalwart defender of Blair’s Britain was Charles Clarke MP the UK government’s Interior minister who was at pains to tell the European Union that in his view: “The judges both in my country and in the European Court need to understand that the people of Europe … will not for a long time accept that action cannot be taken against people who are offering a real threat to our way of life because of human rights considerations …” [4] This kind of paramoralism is reminiscent of the same use of the Neo-Con theme of “they hate us for our freedoms” so often repeated as a blanket rebuttal for genuine concerns for civil liberties. Nonetheless, the die was cast.

The National Criminal Intelligence Service said in its annual report in 2003 that “more than half of the child porn sites are hosted in the United States” and that “the number of sites coming from Russia has doubled in the past year.” Evangelistic crusades are being encouraged and often waged whipping up a great deal of emotion with little factual data. Child pornography figures in some quarters have been massively overblown or in some cases plucked out of thin air. According to reports from within the US last year a 300 percent rise in internet paedophilia may indicate both a new phenomenon whereby a new technology is utilised but which also reinforces the mythology and lies designed to keep such dynamics firmly in place. If a new crisis is needed then child porn can be used as a “double-bind.” As one journalist recently remarked: “What an irony if the only readily available child porn on the Internet is being maintained by the police and the self-appointed monitors!” [5]

On the evening of January 17 2005, the UK’s Sky News reported on the false evidence used by the UK police in Operation Ore and the overwhelming incidences of corruption.  It remains to be seen if any action will be taken against the police perceived as protector and confidante, is about as far away from reality as it is possible to be. Some men and women in law enforcement know this very well, yet few speak out.

It is likely that much of the child pornography within societies today are produced and distributed underground through an informal but loose-knit networks of paedophiles operating in most European countries with sporadic burgeoning of paedophilia rings arising out of, or adjacent to sexual abuse within neighbourhoods and families. However, with the rise in child trafficking and clear indications of institutionalised child rape networks, child pornography as a multi-billion dollar industry may be, purposely exaggerated. Yet, as a strand in the overall industry of exploitation where billions are indeed accrued, it remains a connected reality, the dividends logically set to increase.

Michael Heimbach, head of the FBI’s Crimes Against Children Unit believes sexual deviants: “… have a real innate need to communicate with others … and sharing experiences. It’s a psychological support base; it makes them say, ‘I’m not so weird’. There are a lot of other people out there that like the same thing I do’’” The current case Heimbach was describing involved “An underground ring of adults who created and trafficked in pornographic videos of naked children being beaten with paddles, hairbrushes and canes.” The “loose-knit” group called the “Spanking Club” were said to have brutally beaten children as young as 4 years old. The club was seen as being influenced and encouraged by the availability of porn and internet chat-rooms where an exchange of fantasies and photos took place.[6]

The more disturbing links to pornography, trafficking and child abuse lead to the front door of the Establishment and naturally remain secured with cast iron protection. We see the guilty and often the innocent placed in prison and taking their own lives while high level paedophiles and child rapists remain above the law. It is also likely that most of the hardcore child porn that does exist is so far underground that it is alongside the impassable domain of the snuff movie where information is almost impossible to come by. For example, the discovery of crimes that may have been continuing undetected for decades are now frequently being seen via the relative “safety” of a closed system known as Internet Relay Chat – IRC – which requires participants to log in using passwords. And many of the paedophiles in question are no amateurs. They can be extremely competent with encryption usage and various other technical ways to avoid entrapment.

The vast majority of stings are carried out by the enormous stores of innocent child nudity and “artistic” erotica that under the laws of the US and increasingly Europe are deemed obscene. As we have seen, this material may also serve as a means to entrap people for private extortion. And what of the recent ruling from the US that effectively all porn is child porn? [7]

We then have the the Child Protection and Obscenity Enforcement Act also known as “2257” which now requires adult porn or erotica companies to keep detailed records proving that all the models they use are over the age of 18. These records contain the real names of performers and their addresses which have to be published somewhere online. It does not take a huge leap of logic to realize that this could leave some persons – such as women operating webcam shows from their homes – open to stalking and harassment. Moreover, all sites coming under the new law are required to have their address clearly accessible to all in order to indicate their “place of business.”  To avoid fines and jail terms persons must keep “proper records” and under the new version of 2257, all files that contain every single pornographic or erotic image and film published, must be cross-indexed with age-verification papers for every single performer that features in the stills or movies. This is a huge undertaking meaning massive overhauls for businesses hard drives, the records of which must be kept for seven years. The porn business is up in arms over the law claiming that it curtails significant freedoms. As the same report states: “…they have vast numbers of addresses to punch into their super computer for listing undesirables…. the Patriot Act [8] was used to prosecute people for offences that were not terrorist offences shortly after it became law.” [9]

We can easily forget how insidious these new acts and waiting executive laws really are and how they primed and ready to dispense with all constitutional rights. Clamping down on the business of porn is a red herring. As former director of UK civil rights organization and now a much needed voice as Deputy Chair of the new Independent Police Complaints Commission, John Wadham mentioned recently: “I recall an occasion attempting to argue that even alleged sex offenders have human rights, when confronted by the devastated mother of a child murdered by a sex offender.” [10]  Not an easy prospect, which is why child porn and public pornography in general could be one of the many channels by which we might endure a gradual but comprehensive lock-down on internet freedoms.

The genuine Russian-led examples of burgeoning child trafficking networks are a reality, as are some of the isolated European instances of exploitation. Typical examples include the arrest of five suspects in the Spanish cities of Madrid, Murcia, Lerida and Valencia in 2005. One man was charged with abducting, raping and abusing babies as young as 11 months while the others were charged with filming and distributing images of the abuse on the Internet.[11] Or the British man and father jailed for raping a baby with a sentence that was ridiculously lenient. [12] Both cases were proven instances that child molestation is a growing reality in our societies. This is the nature of the perfect double bind. There are further “politically correct” rulings that funnel more chaos into an already charged domain.

Take the 2004 ruling in the Italian high court that paedophiles can take pornographic photos of children as long as they are not sold for profit. Which means one can share and perpetrate acts of child porn as long as you do not charge for viewing the material, otherwise, it is legal. The report continues: “…that the Court of Cassation in Rome upheld the acquittal by a court in Turin of Antonio B., 45, over photographs that he took when he forced a youth of 13 to carry out sexual acts.”[13]

There are small clues in the above that included “forced” “sexual acts” and “profit.” One wonders what thoughts processes are running through those whose directives one would hope, are first and foremost to protect the interests of children. Similarly, Canada’s BC provincial court also came to the conclusion that possession of child porn represented a clear self-imposed boundary that would not be transgressed by those who chose to view such pornography. A court in Oregon believed a law that prohibited adults from giving minors sexually explicit materials violated the Oregon Constitution’s free speech protections.

There is, as we shall see, a huge difference between an individual who has exploited and even murdered a child for his own gratification and an individual who has been surfing for adult porn. This is the background to much of the prosecutions focused around child pornography. In such an emotive arena all manner of forces are vying for control and have little to do with liberty, least of all for the rights of the child. In effect, child pornography – while certainly encompassing very real predatory beings intent on using the internet to search for prey – is now a term that is used by law enforcement agencies to cover a multitude of sins extending to arts and basic pornography – regardless of its morality.

Let us keep in mind that in 2004 and 2005, three young children were killed by sex offenders. Congress immediately reacted and passed the most unconstitutional child abuse laws in the history of the USA. Yet, while the figures for the prevalence of sexual abuse remains contentious and unresolved, you can bet that the horrendous figures for physical abuse, drug abuse, gang related crime and drunk-driving deaths of children on the roads barely gets a mention. This is not sensational enough; this doesn’t get the voyeuristic and self-righteous juices flowing. Meanwhile, the financial, business and political “Elite” can play the “knight in shining armour” while indulging in the very practices they apparently eschew.

Inflating or even taking advantage of a rise in child pornography online could lead to a comprehensive ban on extreme examples of porn and finally pornography itself. For the masses that is. The tool of child porn will serve as a prelude to more extreme forms of “crimes against the state.” We may look for a gradual fusion between dissidents, Al-Qaeda and the “War on Terror” so that internet surveillance can be comprehensively tightened. The dawn raids of Landslide/Ore and other trawling and entrapment operations that ruined so many lives may well be the first stage in quelling any kind of dissidence of the near future. Criticism of the US government and Homeland Security is perceived as Bush’s line: “if you’re not with us you’re with the terrorists.”  In many American minds the sex offender and terrorist is more or less one and the same as in this Georgian State legislator’s opinion: “Sex offenders are the most reviled people in society… They’re one step above terrorists; there’s no political downside to cracking down on these folks.” It is then that we realise the true extent of ponerisation that is now occurring.

In Britain, the “surveillance society” is well and truly here. One of the ideas floated by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre with children bombarded by images and info-tainment, was to turn them into “spy kids” for the Establishment in Europe and the US. This is the crux of the matter: to make people so dependent and reliant on the State from largely phantom fears that children especially feel compelled to turn their own parent’s in. “There are 9.5 million school-kids in the UK. Imagine if we could get them all to save the CEOP’s website to their favourites box so that whenever they are online they can fill in a form telling us who they are talking to, what (those people) are saying and why they think it is a threat.” [14]

The UK is the most spied-on country in the world according to a recent official report. We are being scrutinized, logged and photographed as never before with a typical Briton caught on camera over 300 times a day. The report highlighted concern over records kept of every internet site we visit and the long-term retention of logs detailing those visits to the growing use of automatic number plate recognition to track people’s journeys.  Integrate this with child porn and paedophile concerns – it’s a pretext for Orwellian controls ready and waiting for the State. But hyping the fear is essential. For instance, one study showed how easily the climate of paedophilia panic was eroding normal life. A schoolgirl’s playground banter: “… resulted in her father being refused work because he had been classed as a suspected paedophile. ‘The little girl was overheard saying, ‘My dad bonked me last night’. A dinner lady heard this and reported it to the school authorities,’… Social services discovered that the girl was referring to her father tapping her playfully on the head with an inflatable hammer. The file was closed, but five years later the father discovered he was still a suspected sex offender.” [15]

We are now faced with the possibility that factions within the US government itself, after seeking to stem a largely imaginary tsunami of child porn became its greatest purveyors and sellers. This was  due to factional objectives, the most important perhaps being the protection of an Elite who do indeed prey on children and young adults as a way of life, systemised and institutionalised by political expediency and blackmail.

Shout loud enough and hard enough with inflated figures and dubious data and the core subject matter, where it counts, becomes discredited.

As we can see from other prominent factors such as the War on Terror, the purpose may be to contribute to the initiation of draconian controls where misguided moralism lumps art into child pornography and along with child rape just as dissidents are cast under the same shadow of the terrorist. It is the ultimate justification for the death of internet free speech. The threat of child pornography and those affiliated with “terrorist groups” become the package by which internet freedom is lost for the “greater good.”

Taking this hypothesis further, we might conjecture that if that factions within governments are in control not only of narcotics, arms, human trafficking, but also the pornography industry we can see blackmail would play an increasingly decisive role in forcing certain people into taking top positions in NBC, NASA, Harvard, the military, the FBI, and FEMA. Perhaps there are many such virtual, commercial porn sites directly serving this purpose as recruiters for a new generation of politically compromised men. The Pathocracy needs key positions to be filled to facilitate a greater ease of psychologically compromised individuals whose influence is spread into the everyday lives of the populace enhancing their suggestibility towards specific pre-designed objectives. Those that “fit” in the core network of psychopathic groupings can then be relied upon to carry out their naturally allotted tasks. Disinformation artists in radio, television and the internet may have been given immunity from prosecution by federal authorities in return for defending the government.

Why not use the presence of child porn as the perfect pretext?

The Politics of Entrapment IV: Peverted Justice and Porn Bombing

“We are the Perverted-Justice Foundation. Of course, those new to our foundation likely have no idea what that means. This is a foundation unlike most, if any, other foundations you’ll ever run across. We’re a foundation that does not simply thunder about a problem, we don’t merely advocate or preach against an issue from a distance. No, our foundation is a pro-active endeavor. We’re aggressive. We’re confrontational. We believe you have to be to make a difference in the fight against predators and pedophiles. We don’t wring our hands and say “they’re so evil, what can be done!” We find a way to get things done.”

pervertedjustice.com


Whether that “aggression”, “confrontation” and “getting things done” amounts to truly improving the situation or perpetuating the crimes is a question at least some who can still think attempting to ask amid all the gnashing of teeth. History tells us that vigilantism – whether in the street on the internet – is a cathartic experience for the ones doing the perceived purging, but less objective when it comes to targeting who is innocent and who is guilty. Indeed, with this kind of mindset it seldom seems to matter. It is the same ruinous, neo-conservative reflex to cleanse the world of complicated issues by using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.

The internet has already spawned its own version of reflexive and ill-informed initiatives which serve to increase the peripheral ability for psychopaths to extort and control. The distortion of facts, the suppression of real issues and possible solutions are thus kept out of reach. Seemingly with the help of the public, those that are willing to seek retributive justice and project their own fears into the emotional maelstrom can find all they need with Perverted Justice.com. This particular website is but one example of vigilantism and police entrapment American style. It has formed a “gateway” for recruiting “volunteer contributors who pose as underage children in chat rooms. Posing from a variety of ages (standard ages are 10-15), these contributors simply go into chat rooms with fake online screen names and wait for predators to instigate conversation with them.”

Xavier Von Erck, the website owner, claims to target and expose “wannabe pedos” from online chats which have been recorded after the fact and where many have been arrested, convicted and placed on the California sex register. You are able to send the target an email (assuming he still has an account which is unlikely) and: “… If no police agency expresses interest in prosecuting those adults, we post them publicly on our website … Regardless of past interaction with police, we make an effort to present each case to police so that there is an opportunity to prosecute before the log is posted on this site.” [1]

Xavier Von Erck, 2006

Once the wannabe predator has been sufficiently stimulated and worked up into a frenzy of deviancy, phone numbers are taken and addresses given, ready for the police show down. The chat room dialogue is then posted on the website with a photo for all to see. Votes are then offered on how “slimy” the person is considered to be. Though this kind of puerile behaviour is the least of the problems on the site, it gives an indication of the intent of the website owner and the people he has employed to run it. Some believe that responses such as these, far from helping to address society’s problem of paedophilia and child rape crime, actually help to create it.

Von Erck provides an extensive FAQ section where all seems above order and meticulously thought out. There are a few problems with this set up however. It appears “Xavier Von Erck” or real name: Phillip Eide, a 26 year old computer gamer of Portland, Oregon, the owner and “director of operations” set up Perverted-Justice over 12 years ago with a strict “Rule of No First Contact” which was observed for the first 2 years. An immediate ban from the site would follow if any member contacted the police or news outlet regarding their ensnarement.

Several years ago the rule was “relaxed” largely due to pressure from ex-members who formed an alternative site corruptedjustice.com (which is no longer in existence) to alert the public that all was not rosy in the land of alleged paedophile busting. Since the PJ’s inception they have claimed to have “busted” over 600 men (as of 2005) with no police involvement. Since then, from the wikipedia listing we learn: “… online operations have led to 314 convictions as of March 28, 2009, with over 200 more currently awaiting trial, and an average of 25 arrests a month for the year of 2006.”

Corrupted Justice (CJ) raised some vital points when they asked:

“How many of those 600 were actual predators who were [allowed to] walk free because the vigilantes didn’t involve police? How many of those people were actually innocent and mistakenly ruined as a result of being targeted by untrained, anonymous Internet cop-wannabes?” The answers are less than encouraging.

Of the 15 plus “group media busts” in which they involve the television media in their stings is minimal at best, with the end result that the predators walk away suitably embarrassed and angry and no doubt still at large. According to CJ: “Out of 1106 men they have ‘busted’, only 42 convictions have resulted.” What is even more disturbing is that very few of the alleged ‘busts’ do not have much to do with child solicitation. On the CJ website it states: “The tiny percentage of their “busts” which have resulted in an arrest were virtually all a result of media reports, phone calls to police from neighbors, etc. after the fact. – The result – Mostly plea-bargains to minor charges because of a lack of usable evidence. Since the taping for February 3rd’s Dateline program, Perverted-Justice has resumed ‘busting’ people with absolutely no law enforcement involvement, preferring instead to let their anonymous members dish out their own form of ‘justice’ ”. [2]

True to form this has inevitably led once again to a number of recent cases since the Dateline taping which have: “… mistakenly begun anonymously threatening completely innocent, non-involved people by telephone and e-mail…”

This is akin to rattling a hornet’s nest and then running for cover. CJ asked in their editorial last year: “…what ever happened to the One Thousand and Sixty Four potential predators they busted but for which they didn’t contact the police? They are living in your community instead of sitting in jail where many of them may belong…”

medium_pj(Wikipedia)

Other substantiated claims against Perverted Justice include:

  • The employment of minors in explicit online sex chats.
  • Anonymous harassment and terrorization campaigns against those targeted.
  • Identity theft against critics of Perverted Justice.
  • Serious threats, defamation against journalists, attorneys and other child-protection organizations who have voiced concerns regarding the group’s vigilante tactics.
  • Classic psychopath tactics of denigrating critics by conversive thinking, paramoralisms and paralogical conclusions
  • No evidence of any actual recognized or legitimate law enforcement training for Perverted-Justice members has been made public other than the “extensive training” claimed by present members.

Though the intent may be to inform and defend children, the route taken to convictions are dangerously close to vigilantism dispensing with the “rule of law” however inadequate this may seem. Once “adult citizens” follow the already extremely suspect version of entrapment then the concept of law and justice becomes less than meaningless where a judge and jury are simultaneously acting as creators and instigators of crimes.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his tabloid news corporation MSNBC screened the “Dateline” show “To Catch a Predator” and paid Perverted Justice over $100,000 to participate in the programme. This is understandable, as the level of trashy voyeurism is matched by the other. However a “reputable” news corporation is not usually so up front about paying for stories and compensating sources, yet this is exactly what they did while watching the ratings climb, pandering to the same old propaganda which enraptured over 8 million viewers. It is tabloid T.V. at its worst yet remains a sure-fire winner for those seeking short-term profits from long-term misery.

In combination with PJ’s activities such exploitative programming merely make predators far more aware of legitimate police stings (a term to be used loosely) and to make the field of child molestation and paedophilia reduced down to nothing more than pop-corn entertainment. All this feeds into the overall impression that PJ and other sites and TV programmes are something other than an altruistic community protection. More likely it is part of a further operation to muddy the issues involved in sexual exploitation. Think War on Terror and we have the same programme – different channel.

Having originally wrote notes for this piece in 2005, it is perhaps most significant that no more than a year later a report from 2007 which gave a powerful indication that this was a police/FBI entrapment scam designed to create predators in much the same way that the FBI create terrorists. (See The Terror Industry). In an article by now defunct operationawareness.com it highlights reports filed to the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s Cyber-tipline, that  members of PJ were possessing and disseminating images of child pornography. The article observed:

“NBC Universal, which airs the Dateline show is currently facing two lawsuits for numerous improprieties. The first lawsuit filed by a former NBC producer  is seeking $1 million in damages for the wrongful termination. The firing came after the producer questioned the shows ethics and legalities. The second lawsuit seeks $100 million in damages and is brought by the surviving family members of one of the shows “targets”, who committed suicide as the NBC Dateline and Perverted Justice crew descended upon his home when he failed to show up at the “sting house”. Initial reports are that there was no valid arrest warrant for the man and one police officer on the scene was quoted as saying “that’ll make some good tv” after the man took his life.

Trouble has been circulating around the Perverted-Justice group almost from the beginning for working in tandem with NBC. They have been accused as “staging the news” and NBC reportedly pays Perverted Justice $100,000 per episode. Critics worry that this is a big incentive to do whatever possible to create a sting scenario – anything from false accusations to manufacturing evidence. Perverted Justice, is the group responsible for baiting what they term “would be child molesters” online by posing as minors. Although it is also being reported that they use real minors to lure their targets- raising concerns that Perverted Justice is exploiting minors to achieve their goals.” [3]

Unfortunately, letting the authorities know about one of their pet entrapment projects is a little like alterting the wolf that one of his lambs has wriggled through the fence. Sure enough, the presence of Perverted Justice remains as strong as ever and is still mining the internet for innocent and guilty alike. The title of this website is of course extremely apt: a perversion of justice is most certainly taking place and which will boost the child porn entrapment industry whilst feeding into the worst forms of vigilantism buttressed by superficial training schemes. What hope can we have from amateur law enforcement wannabees when the law and justice itself is fully compromised? The upshot of this, yet again, is a public concentration on the effects rather than the root cause, and clever displacement of focus away from Establishment abuse. Moreover, it means real predators will go further underground while true paedophiles seeking help for their condition can be assured of a climate of demonisation and ostricisation from such outfits. You will seldom see a more egotistical, righteous and dangerous forum for self-appointed judge and jury than this entrapment model.

Way back in August 2004, KenoshaOnline, a news portal for Kenosha and Wisconsin was forced to shut down its anonymous forum due to repeated spamming from a Defence Department source with “links to incest, bestiality, gay sex and other inappropriate media.” [4] KenoshaOnline’s John Norquist contacted the Pentagon regarding the “porn bombs” but the Department of Defence refused to comment. The site’s traffic saw a significant fall once the forum was disconnected. Perhaps this has a connection the fact that our beloved government workers at the Pentagon were investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in 2006 concerning the purchase of child pornography online and discovered: “… more than 250 civilian and military employees of the Defense Department — including some with the highest available security clearance — who  used credit cards or PayPal to purchase images of children in sexual situations.” With assistance from the Pentagon’s Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS) it was found that at least 30 Defence Department employees “… staffers for the secretary of defense, contractors for the ultra-secretive National Security Agency, and a program manager at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency” were all in possession of child pornography.” However not only did the DCIS open investigations into just 20 percent of the individuals identified, it prosecuted “… just a handful.” [5]

According to John Cook of The Upshot:

“… new Project Flicker investigative reports obtained by The Upshot through the Freedom of Information Act, which you can read here, show that DCIS investigators identified 264 Defense employees or contractors who had purchased child pornography online. Astonishingly, nine of those had “Top Secret Sensitive Compartmentalized Information” security clearances, meaning they had access to the nation’s most sensitive secrets. All told, 76 of the individuals had Secret or higher clearances. But DCIS investigated only 52 of the suspects, and just 10 were ever charged with viewing or purchasing child pornography.” [6]

Meantime, the American public has 24 hr warrantless wire-tapping, intrusive searches at the airport, No knock SWAT raids, unlawful take-down of websites and numerous other unconstitutional actions, whilst government employees have a great deal of immunity from this encroaching police state.  Which brings us back once again, to the presence of blackmail and sexpionage as another reason why over 80% of cases were not investigated. While as of 2015, the case “remains open” it seems it hasn’t stopped Pentagon employees appetite for child porn, in whatever guise that maybe. Indeed, one individual attempted to do so 12,000 times. [7]

In 2013, the National Security Agency offers evidence that it had the same ultra-hypocrisy as the Pentagon in that it sees nothing wrong with accruing vast amounts of information from its citizens internet browsing history – most importantly, what pornography websites they visit – while their many of their employees enjoy viewing a deviant brand of the same. Indeed, targeting muslims in this context, is all part of the war on terror, they explain. But if you think that such practices are restricted to the terror industry, think again. This is surveillance which affects everyone. Using pornography and entrapment operations have multiple purposes to that end.

amateurThe pornography business can be used as a means of social control for a variety of purposes. Even Google has had to defend itself since August 2004 from the likes of US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales who had been pressing the search engine giant to release data about people’s searching habits on the internet. [8] The Justice Department was keen to view specific information, including the types of queries submitted by users and the websites in its index. Not one to be accused of worrying too much about the privacy of its users, Google believes the criteria is too broad and “threatens trade secrets.” It fell to privacy groups to warn that user identities could be indirectly revealed, especially with the government’s new drive to collect data for “fighting crime and terrorism.” Their justification was the enforcement of pornography laws with special attention to the 1998 Child Protection Act which was blocked by the Supreme Court due to legal challenges regarding how it was enforced. Gonzales sought a court order to force the company to part with the records. (This is strangely hypocritical since the search engine is already in bed with the CIA).[9]

Over eleven years later and things haven’t improved. Amid the scandal of illegal surveillance by the UK’s GCHQ and America’s NSA revealed by whistleblower Edward J. Snowden the public is getting an idea just how bad it really is under the well-marketed, Goldman Sacs-funded Presidency of Barack Obama. (Although whether this is just a sophisticated psychological operations pantomime is anyone’s guess). Care of his confidente Glenn Greenwald, Snowden’s Leaked documents have shown that porn still plays a part in mass surveillance and intelligence tools. The latest leak has the NSA targeting activists’ and dissidents’ web history in order to locate visits to pornography sites in order to launch a future smear campaign. The claimed target of the social engineering initiative were Muslim radicals but in actual fact were only those critical of government policies.

In an appendix to the leaked document published by the Huffington Post Mr. Greenwald and his fellow journalists describe these individuals stating:

One target’s offending argument is that ‘Non-Muslims are a threat to Islam,’ and a vulnerability listed against him is ‘online promiscuity.’ Another target, a foreign citizen the NSA describes as a ‘respected academic,’ holds the offending view that ‘offensive jihad is justified,” and his vulnerabilities are listed as ‘online promiscuity’ and ‘publishes articles without checking facts.’ A third targeted radical is described as a ‘well-known media celebrity’ based in the Middle East who argues that ‘the U.S perpetrated the 9/11 attack.’ Under vulnerabilities, he is said to lead ‘a glamorous lifestyle.’ A fourth target, who argues that ‘the U.S. brought the 9/11 attacks on itself” is said to be vulnerable to accusations of ‘deceitful use of funds.’ The document expresses the hope that revealing damaging information about the individuals could undermine their perceived ‘devotion to the jihadist cause.’  [10]

When we know that mass surveillance has been in operation for decades, and there is a high probability that most sting operations on child pornography are police entrapments then this is merely confirmation that targets are compromised by monitoring and recording their browsing history. These operations successfully make the final case for blackmail and/or to discredit individuals by a sophisticated process of leakage via social networks and media.  Or as the appendix states: by “viewing sexually explicit material online or using sexually explicit persuasive language when communicating with inexperienced young girls.”

As multiple agencies are cited in the memo it is obvious that they had full awareness of the program and supported its objectives. This should not be anything other than business as usual since US intelligence used the same tactics to discredit so-called members of Al-Qaeda and even Osama bin Laden himself. Recall the juvenile allegations of USB sticks “filled” with pornography and jars of vasoline found at Osama bin Laden’s compound, following the U.S. deathstrike on him in May 2011. This was all part of the same propaganda exercise to revitalise the mythos of Osama as a depraved pervert as well as an evil head of the War on Terror. It’s merely another example of a familiar tactic that is used to eliminate critics.

Keep in mind that if you use the internet then your personal data is up for grabs. If you have the temerity to speak out against the surveillance state and if you have a history of looking at pornographic websites then you can be sure that this is all logged, recorded and filed for future use. Just make sure you don’t become too vocal against your beloved government who only has your protection at heart …

The internet-based Inquisition21 group which we looked at briefly in a previous post were seeking to bring a class action law suit against UK police for the Landslide/Operation Ore scandal and were subsequently delisted by Google. They believed this was due to the nature of the evidence they were sharing concerning child porn police corruption. After refusing to comment on the action Google issued a general statement yet failed to confirm that the Inquisition21 website had breached any of the guidelines. The censorship came just as the site was about to make potentially damaging disclosures about the handling of the Operation Ore investigations. [11]

While a reform of sex laws are periodically needed for improvement on a variety of bills and clauses, the introduction of measures, in effect, hand over responsibility to government bit by bit and decreases our own response-ability, often without the relevant information as to why such laws are considered so essential for our children’s protection and safety. In reality, freedom and responsibility are deeply connected and if one is curtailed the other will inevitably follow. The end result (and purpose) is that governments leverage greater and greater control under the prextexts of child pornography, the War on Terror and the War on Drugs, while its citizens scratch their heads and wonder how on earth it could have happened.

[9] Former CIA agent and computer expert Robert David Steele, who has close connections with top Google directors, suggested that Google co-operated with the CIA. Steele is was the second-ranking civilian (GS-14) in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence from 1988-1992 and a former clandestine services case officer for the CIA. His latest accusations against Google have raised the possibility that other accusations are now credible and that Google is truly censoring in places far from China and much nearer home. For example, Google has been caught censoring recent programmes and critiques critical of the Iraq war. On the October 2006 Alex Jones radio programme, Steele said, “I think that Google has made a very important strategic mistake in dealing with the secret elements of the U.S. government – that is a huge mistake and I’m hoping they’ll work their way out of it and basically cut that relationship off. Google was a little hypocritical when they were refusing to honor a Department of Justice request for information because they were heavily in bed with the Central Intelligence Agency, the office of research and development.”
