Israel’s International Conspiracy: Hasbara Agents Everywhere
“We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” — Jewish banker James Paul Warburg, February 17, 1950
All of that outrage and personal ridicule is pro forma for an Israeli government that reflexively smears and denigrates any and all critics, but the more interesting epilogue was the unanticipated discovery by the Swedish and international media that Wallstrom has not been paying the full rent on the subsidized government apartment that she occupies. The revelation follows a familiar pattern, where critics of Israel suddenly find themselves being discredited for something completely unrelated to the Middle East. President George H. W. Bush (the good Bush) suffered a similar come to Jesus moment in 1991 when he went on national television to denounce the pressure tactics of the Israel lobby. The Israeli government was demanding U.S. Treasury backed loans to construct illegal settlements. President Bush, who was running for reelection and far ahead in the opinion polls, suddenly was confronted by a well-funded and organized opposition raising doubts about him and his record. And President Bush was not reelected, presumably learning along the way that one does not trifle with the Israel Lobby, to be replaced by the enthusiastically Zionist Bill Clinton.
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is also wondering about Israel’s alleged commitment to peace. On Tuesday he said “it was human nature to react to occupation,” following up with a comment on Wednesday regarding Israel’s “stifling” occupation of Palestine. Netanyahu reacted with his usual over the top rhetoric, stating that Ban “was encouraging terror.” One might also anticipate, as in the case of Wallstrom, a well-orchestrated media blitz questioning Ban’s motives or explaining how he has always been a closet anti-Semite. It is par for the course and fully expected when one criticizes Israel.
Indeed, it is a global phenomenon. Wherever one goes – Western Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States – there is a well-organized and funded lobby ready, willing and able to go to war to protect Israel. Most of the organizations involved take at least some direction from officials in Tel Aviv. Many of them even cooperate fully with the Israeli government, its parastatal organizations and faux-NGOs like the lawfare center Shurat HaDin. Their goal is to spread propaganda and influence the public in their respective countries of residence to either hew to the line coming out of Tel Aviv or to confuse the narrative and stifle debate when potential Israeli crimes are being discussed.
Israel’s diaspora allies are backed up by a formidable government organized machine that spews out disinformation and muddies the waters whenever critics surface. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has a corps of paid “volunteers” who monitor websites worldwide and take remedial action and there is a similar group working out of the Prime Minister’s office. That is why any negative story appearing in the U.S. about Israel is immediately inundated with pro-Israel comments, many of which make exactly the same coordinated points while exhibiting the same somewhat less than perfect English. On sites like Yahoo they are actually able to suppress unwelcome comments by flooding the site with “Dislike” responses. If a comment receives a large number of dislikes, it is automatically blocked or removed.
The sayanim, local Jews in their countries of residence, are essential to this process, having been alerted by emails from the Israeli Foreign Ministry about what to do and say. The reality is that Israel has lost the war of public opinion based on its own actions, which are becoming more and more repressive and even inhumane and so are difficult to explain. That means that the narrative has to be shifted by Israel’s friends through subterfuge and the corruption of the information process in each country. In some places the key media and political players who are engaged in the process can simply be bought. In other places they can be intimidated or pressured into taking positions that are neither in their own countries’ interests nor morally acceptable. In large countries like the United States, Britain and France a combination of friendly suasion and coercive elements often come together.
In all cases, the objective is the same: to repress or misrepresent any criticism of Israel and to block any initiatives that might be taken that would do damage either to the Israeli economy or to the country’s perceived standing in the world. In some countries Israel’s advocates work right out in the open and are highly successful in implementing policies that often remain largely hidden but that can be discerned as long as one knows what to look for.
Recent Israel Lobby activity in the United States has included legislation at state levels to make illegal divestment from Israel or to promote boycott of Israeli products. A trade pact with Europe will reportedly include language requiring the United States to take retaliatory action if any European country tries to boycott Israel, to include the West Bank settlements, which the empowering legislation regards as part of Israel proper.
Israel is also working to create a mechanism for global censorship of the internet to ban “incitement,” which clearly is a euphemism for material that is critical of its policies. Recently Facebook has begun to delete from its site any “hate speech” and “terrorism” related material but what has not been widely noted is that the apparent restrictions also have involved sites critical of Israel including Christians United for Peace.
Many prominent critics of the American Israel Political Action Committee (AIPAC) are unaware that AIPAC exists in various forms in a number of other countries. BICOM , the Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre, is located in London. The French equivalent is the Conseil Representatif des Institutions Juives de France (CRIF). In Canada there is a Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) , in Australia a Zionist Federation of Australia and in New Zealand a Zionist Federation of New Zealand .
While AIPAC is specifically focused on the U.S.-Israel relationship, its counterparts in Europe often deal with a whole range of issues that they define as Jewish, but protecting Israel is always part of their agenda, particularly for those groups that label themselves as Zionist. The political power and financial muscle of the groups gives them access to government far beyond the actual numbers of their supporters. In France this has led to the legislation of hate crimes that de facto exist to protect Jews that have been also been interpreted as limitations on one’s ability to criticize Israel. In its most recent test, a French court declared that a peaceful protest promoting Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) directed against Israel was illegal.
Many believe that France now has less free speech than any other European country. Recently, the alleged humor magazine Charlie Hebdo, ran a revolting cartoon showing the little Syrian boy Alan Kurdi who drowned in Turkey last summer as all grown up and sexually assaulting a woman in Germany. There was considerable outrage throughout the world but no sign that the French government will do anything to prosecute the magazines since it was Muslims who were being ridiculed. Charlie Hebdo frequently insults Muslims (and also Christians) but rarely lampoons Jews.
In Britain, Jewish organizations uniquely are allowed to patrol heavily Jewish neighborhoods in police-like uniforms while driving police type vehicles and there have been reports of their threatening Muslims who enter the areas. Prime Minister David Cameron’s government, which is responsive to a Conservative Friends of Israel lobbying group, has also done its part to create official barriers to any spread of the BDS movement. It is proposing legislation that will enable it to overrule decisions by local government councils that seek to cut business or investment ties with Israel and, more particularly, Israeli settlements, under the pretext that such action interferes with the conduct of foreign affairs. The British government is also considering its own brand of hate speech legislation, banning from social media any commentary that is considered to be anti-Semitic, which will almost certainly extend to criticism of Israel.
Canada’s government has also threatened to use hate speech laws to block criticism of Israel and forbid BDS related activity. Australia meanwhile, has ceased referring to east Jerusalem as “occupied” and is apparently leaning towards similar “non-pejorative” language relating to the militarized occupation of the West Bank, preferring the neocon favored dodge “disputed.” New Zealand has proposed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks that specifically demands that participants “refrain from referring a situation…to the International Criminal Court,” which would effectively decriminalize war crimes committed by both sides during the two recent invasions of Gaza. As a United Nations investigation determined that Israel was disproportionately responsible for what did occur, the proposal eliminates accountability and is effectively a get out of jail free card for some Israeli government officials.
And so it goes. Criticize Israel and there will be a comeuppance by virtue of a highly developed international system that relies on government direction as well as volunteer supporters who are able to shape both the media message and the political response. Accepting that as a given, I suppose one should be proud of being called an anti-Semite every time the label is misapplied to stifle dissent, but it all sadly reflects a lowering of the discussion to a dirt level. This might just be because there is no justification for Israeli behavior. The fact is that in terms of systematic human rights violations Israel is something beyond an apartheid state, frequently engaging in open racism and, in the opinion of many observers, crimes against humanity. It is furthermore a persistent source of instability in the Middle East and even beyond.
Israel is a liability to the United States and to the European nations that it has successfully manipulated into acquiescence regarding its bad behavior. When AIPAC and its overseas clones act for Israel the host nations in which these organizations exist should recognize exactly what is taking place. If Israel is truly first in their hearts and minds that is perfectly acceptable but its advocates should perhaps consider moving there and letting the rest of us be. Would that be too much to ask?

TV’s Designated Survivor: The Stench of Zionist Predictive Programming
by Gordon Duff and Ian GreenhalghNew television show. They’ve done it again. For those of you that don’t remember HBO’s Homeland, a masturbatory fiasco of hideous and hateful Israeli bile.
In the show Designated Survivor, Keifer Sutherland, son of Donald Sutherland, star of Robert Altman’s M*A*S*H*, plays the useful tool of globalist propaganda, the TV character isn’t the tool, it’s Sutherland in real life that’s the embarassment.
No remotely sane person would sit still for the abusive network television show unless maybe they caught Sutherland doing something very, very naughty with a little boy somewhere.
Here’s how the show goes: the Capitol is blown up with everybody in it bar Sutherland and Virginia Madsen. Here’s the crap we’ve seen so far:
- First episode, Sutherland humiliates the Iranian ambassador and threatens to nuke Tehran; this is Zionist masturbatory fantasy in it’s purest form
- Episode two, the Lebanese political party Hezbollah, not on any American terrorist list is compared to Al-Qaeda. Conveniently ignoring the current reality that Hezbollah is engaged in bloody battle with Al-Qaeda in Syria. Worse still, Al-Qaeda, the organisation wrongly credited for 9-11, (we know the Mossad did it and we can prove it) has now shown to have always been American funded and CIA controlled, according to sources at the Russian Foreign Ministry.
- Last, and hardly the least, when no terror group took credit for the Washington bombing, this followed:
But Osama Bin Laden didn’t take responsibility for 9-11 until month’s laterEach one of these issues was placed in this TV show because these are key security concerns for the criminal group that runs Israel. Last week, Israel passed a law designating Saudi Arabia as the 9-11 plotter and overrode a deal by President Obama.
For those of you that don’t understand, who don’t know who Sheldon Adelson is, who Donald Trump really is, who Roy Cohn really was and who controls America’s Congress, this last statement won’t make any sense; this is why we neither write nor publish for, nor give a flying fuck about the morons that drift onto VT and find themselves confused or offended by our criticism of Trump and every other tentacle of the Neocon-Zionist-Israeli beast.
For those of us who genuinely know the score and the suffering billions around the world go through, particularly because of the ignorance and mental incapacity of tens of millions of mostly male, mostly white Americans; from time to time the fantasy of seeing America destroyed by David Icke’s Alien shapeshifters doesn’t seem all that bad. A mental picture comes to mind – the Queen, her snarling reptilian jaws gnawing at the face of Donald Trump…. Sorry…. never mind.
Back to the subject at hand, for people who read more than the first 30 words of an article. Israel is terrified of being blamed for 9-11. Over the past few months, Israeli internet trolls out of Haifa have taken control of the long useless 9-11 Truth Movement and turned it from a simple disinformation exercise to borscht-belt comedy.
The truth about Bin Laden, that before 9-11 his medical treatment wasn’t in Qatar but rather the Bethesda Naval Centre outside Washington.
The truth about Bin Laden, that Washington DC police in August of 2001 interviewed him at the Metropolitan Club over the theft of a briefcase.
The truth about Bin Laden, that his last known communication was December 3rd, 2001, received by the CIA/NSA intercept facility in Doha, in which he accused American Neocons of staging 9-11. This was less than two weeks before his death, as reported in Egypt, Pakistan, India, Iran and even by Fox News, until Rita Katz brought him back to life in the guise of a Mercedes repair shop owner of Somali parentage living in Haifa, Israel. The new short, fat Bin Laden, who lost his ability to speak Oxford English continued to drop audio tapes in the dumpster behind Katz’s Brooklyn apartment for years until his frozen corpse was dumped into the Indian Ocean.
Then there’s Hezbollah, who are still close to the top of Israel’s shit list due to the failed Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 2006 when the IDF had their asses so comprehensively kicked they still can’t sit comfortably. Israel’s Merkava tanks, the pride of the IDF’s ground forces, destroyed with turrets laid alongside, decorate roadsides across southern Lebanon; Hezbollah have even crafted a memorial monument using several burnt-out Merkavas.
Designated Survivor is nothing more than an encapsulation of Israel’s fear and paranoia wrapped in a shroud of hateful propagandistic rhetoric. Wherever they decide to take the narrative of this show, rest assured the guiding hand is controlled by an Israeli brain and the ultimate purpose of this show is to further inculcate Israel’s agenda into the consciousness of the American masses.
Doctors of Death: Syrian doctors in the US and their CIA-ISIS ties
…by Ian Greenhalgh
Last night, while making a cup of tea I happened to catch a truly stomach-churningly disgusting report by the BBC on the Russians and Syrians bombing the hospitals of Aleppo with barrel bombs, cluster bombs and even chlorine gas bombs.
Of course, this is a false narrative put out on behalf of Israel and her allies in London, Washington and elsewhere – the very people responsible for the creation of IS and the genocidal conflicts in Syria and Iraq.
I noted one particularly foul talking head who really laid it on thick about how barbarous and murderous the ‘Assad regime’ and their ‘Russian partners’, this apparently Syrian Arabic person who sounds precisely like an Israeli black propagandist reading a Mossad-penned script goes by the name of Zaher Sahloul and he is the spokesman for a group called the Syrian-American Medical Society (SAMS).Sahloul has a blog which reads like it was written in Haifa by the same group of shills and trolls who plague the internet and attempt to infiltrate every ‘truth’ group whether the subject be 9-11, Sandy Hook or even JFK.
SAMS are based in Canfield, Ohio, a small, sleepy town in the rustbelt of the Midwest. Their primary role is to blame the victims of the CIA-Neocon-Israeli cabal that is responsible for the Syrian conflict.
SAMS deal in the sort of anti-Assad, anti-Putin propaganda we are all too familiar with from other fake groups like the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and The Institute for the Study of War, as evidenced by this recent press release:
Press Release: Aleppo’s Largest Hospital Targeted for the Third Time in One Week. The Hospital Severely Damaged.
“SAMS strongly condemns these systematic and ongoing attacks against healthcare workers and medical facilities, and joins U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in calling these attacks war crimes,” said SAMS’s President Dr. Ahmad Tarakji.SAMS have a history of trading in black propaganda and nefarious disinfo – they testified before the United Nations Security Council and the United States House Committee on Foreign Affairs about the Sarin gas attacks in Ghouta, Syria in March, 2015.
We know that the Ghouta attacks were the work of Google Idea Groups and Israel, thanks to the brave investigative work of VT correspondent Jeffrey Silverman; therefore SAMS, in giving testimony pointing the finger at the ‘Assad regime’ were also part of the group responsible for the deaths of over 1000 people in Ghouta.
Despite being based in the rustbelt of the US Midwest, SAMS get around – they held their 15th International Conference in Gaziantep, Turkey earlier this year.
SAMS travel to Gaziantep under the protection of ISIS to hand out awards in the middle of the largest ISIS training and support facility.
Gaziantep is the town where a Turkish prosecutor was jailed for trying to arrest Turkish Security Agency agents for trying to manufacture Sarin gas. Furthermore, it is the staging post for the ISIS operation in Aleppo, where supplies and training for ISIS are centred.
Gaziantep contains stockpiles of Sarin, chlorine and mustard gases that have been used against the Syrian people.
SAMS have been fully supportive of Turkey and the Erdogan regime’s slaughter of innocent Kurds in Turkey, they have also supported ISIS in their slaughter of innocent Syrians.
Legitimate medical personnel in Europe and the USA have been coerced into endorsing and supporting this evil organisation, often by threats against their family members.
SAMS also have ties to NGOs that have been delivering chemical weapons into Syria that have been used to kill thousands of innocent Syrians
