Part II: Kesha Rogers on Mark Dankof’s America: May 27th U. S. Senate Runoff in Texas Democratic Party
Mark interviews Kesha Rogers, the LaRouche Democrat who has forced a May 27th runoff election for the party’s nomination as the U.S. Senate candidate against Republican incumbent John Cornyn in November. Her campaign web page may be accessed here.
In the news summary, Mark covered the Tony Cartalucci essays on Syria for Intifada Palestine; Pat Buchanan’s latest on Zionist casino mogul, Sheldon Adelson; Grant Smith’s publication of declassified government documents on Israel’s theft of nuclear weapons raw materials from the United States; and Philip Giraldi’s assessment of the damage to American national security caused by Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, in the Unz Review.
Hear the show here.
I am reminded today of the spring of 1969, when I was confirmed in a traditional German Lutheran Church in Dayton, Ohio, after two years of catechetical instruction. In those days, the class had to memorize many Bible passages, and entire sections of Luther’s Small Catechism. This rigor included the memorization of the 10 Commandments, and the brief written expositions on the meaning of each provided by the 16th century Father of the Reformation.
The 8th Commandment, and Luther’s subsequent explanation, are simply as follows:
“Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness Against Thy Neighbor. [8th Commandment]
“What Does This Mean? [Luther's posited question]
“We should fear and love God that we may not deceitfully belie, betray, slander, nor defame our neighbor, but defend him, speak well of him, and put the best construction on everything. [Luther's Answer]“
In the annotations provided by Edward W. A. Koehler in the version of Luther’s Small Catechism published by Concordia Theological Seminary Press in Fort Wayne, Indiana, we read the following supplementary comment on Luther’s exposition:
“False witness is making an untrue statement and making it with the intention of harming a reputation.”
With this in mind, Howard Phillips, the founder of the Constitution Party and the Chairman of Washington’s Conservative Caucus, has borne public false witness against me in an article penned by Zionist sock puppet Kenneth R. Timmerman in the ironically named Accuracy in Media (AIM). Timmerman’s piece, entitled “Tehran TV Loves Ron Paul,” is clearly directed against Press TV/Iran, and against American conservatives who have appeared on that network to publicly state their opposition to an Israeli-provoked American war with that country. Philip Giraldi, Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Sheldon Foote, Mark Glenn, and I are among those Mr. Timmerman has in his gun sites. But most interestingly of all, Timmerman has drawn Howard Phillips into participation in a hit piece designed to hurt the Presidential candidacy of Congressman Ron Paul of Texas (R-TX). Why?
The public professional and political connections of Kenneth R. Timmerman may explain exactly why. The online news service, The Newshoggers, informs readers that:
“Mr. Timmerman is also Executive Director of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, an organization which he co-founded with Project for the New American Century (PNAC) founding member Peter Rodman, who is currently United States Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs and some prominent Iranian dissident figures. As such, you might expect (and you would be right to do so) that this Foundation has the ear of the Bush administration, GOP members on the Hill and prominent neoconservative thinkers. The Foundation has a distinctly secular bent, unsurprising given Mr. Timmerman’s negative opinions of the Islam in that country, and is dedicated to assisting regime change in Iran.”
“More surprising, perhaps – and not mentioned in any official bio – is his presence on the Advisory Board of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) – an honor he currently shares with Rep. Eric Cantor, Michael Ledeen, Jack Kemp and Richard Perle. Past Board members include Vice President Dick Cheney, US ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, and Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith. A heady and powerful grouping. JINSA, it has been alleged, is closely allied to neoconservative advocates of pre-emptive regime change and to the AIPAC group which is currently embroiled in a spying scandal.
“It appears, then, that Mr. Timmerman and his Foundation for Democracy in Iran are very well placed indeed to gain a great measure of influence and power should the US institute force regime change in Iran. Iranian members of his organization could reasonably expect high political office as appointees of any occupation authority in the same way that Ahmed Chalabi and Iyad Allawi were in Iraq. The parallels are obvious – providing shaky evidence and allegations of a WMD program to help foment a war that catapults them into political office.”
This is neither the first, or the presumably last time that Howard Phillips has been in the unmistakable service of an obvious asset of the Israeli Lobby in the media arena. In the run-up to the 2008 elections, Phillips was publicly promoting Dr. Jerome Corsi as the best Presidential candidate available to the Constitution Party to run in that cycle. Corsi is the author of “Atomic Iran: How the Terrorist Regime Bought the Bomb and American Politicians,” and a Harvard-educated pundit connected to Joseph Farah’s Neo-Conservative/pro-Zionist World Net Daily. Corsi dropped out of contention for the nomination of Phillips’s party only a handful of weeks after appearing on my old radio show on the Republic Broadcasting Network. There, Corsi spoke openly of his regular trips to the Zionist State, and his regular consultations with his “political advisors and friends in the Israeli Knesset.”
Kenneth R. Timmerman and Jerome Corsi are two of the most identifiable figures in the American Neo-Conservative Press working with The Lobby and The War Party. Yet Howard Phillips, the founder of a political movement originally rooted in the disenfranchised Pat Buchanan wing of the Republican Party, is a provable player and participant in their activities, even as Phillips has a longtime track record of rhetorically attacking “The Neo-Cons” and “The Globalists” in a shopworn public profile as an America First patriot. That record includes membership in the shadowy Council for National Policy (CNP), the Trilateral Commission of the American Right. The Internet trail on this is extensive, including Jackie Petru’s observations on Phillips in a piece entitled, “Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing.”
To purloin Pat Buchanan’s turning-of-a-rhetorical-phrase at the Republican Party National Convention in Houston in 1992, it would appear that Phillips has pulled off the greatest instance of “. . . cross-dressing in American political history.”
At least until now. When it comes to my U. S. Senate race in Delaware in 2000, Phillips and Kenneth R. Timmerman publish palpable falsehood in the following way:
“But what about his credential as a former U.S. Senate candidate? Dankof claims on his website that he was the “nominated candidate of the Constitution party” in Delaware in 2000. It turns out, however, that the Constitution Party never held a formal nominating process or a party primary, and that Dankof essentially nominated himself to run in that year’s U.S. Senate race.
“‘Anybody can be a candidate just by filing the forms’,” said Howard Phillips, Conservative Party founder and long-time standard bearer. “‘Mark was never anointed by the Constitution Party; he decided to run by himself.’”
My response is simply as follows. Howard Phillips is a liar. He has violated the 8th Commandment. He owes me a public apology.
For the record, 1) Phillips called me personally at my apartment in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in January of 2000 to ask me to run for the U. S. Senate seat in Delaware in the fall of that year. When I decided to run, against my better judgment, Phillips met me at his Washington, D. C. office on a number of occasions to plan out strategy for the operation. This included a move to Claymont, Delaware [across the border from Philadelphia, PA] and a change in drivers license to legally permit me to make the race. 2) There was, in fact, a public caucus of existing Constitution Party activists in Dover, Delaware (an event mentioned in their media in one location at the time), which formally recognized me as the standard-bearer that year. Howard Phillips was in physical attendance at the public caucus, and spoke on my behalf. The papers which were subsequently filed on behalf of my candidacy after the public caucus were filed either by Phillips himself, his staff member Alison Potter at Constitution Party of Virginia headquarters, or the State Chairman of the Constitution Party of Delaware at their behest. I did not file them. 3) Howard Phillips asked Pat Buchanan to formally endorse two Constitution Party candidates for the U. S. Senate that year, in states where the Reform Party had no one on the ballot. One was in Michigan. Mark Dankof in Delaware was the other. 4) At the National Convention of the Constitution Party in Baltimore in 2000, nationally televised by C-SPAN and chronicled in their archives for DVD sale, Mark Dankof’s 30 minute address to all of the National Convention Delegates from the podium was featured along with speeches by Larry Klayman of Judicial Watch, Christopher Ruddy of NewsMax, and Mr. Phillips himself. 5) Howard Phillips’ nationally distributed Issues and Strategy Bulletin formally acknowledged my candidacy in 2000 in a word of expressed appreciation to me as well as his other candidates for Federal offices, after the election was over. 6) As a quid pro quo for my agreeing to run, Howard Phillips issued me a written agreement as an Independent Consultant to research and ghost-write his nationally distributed Senate Roll-Call Report under Conservative Caucus auspices, for remuneration for a period not to exceed one year. This was designed to cover my loss of income in 2000 when I agreed to devote myself to running, even as I suspended my theological studies at Westminster Theological Seminary in 2000 at Phillips’ request, to do what I thought was a favor for a friend. Now an ex-friend. 7) In 2000, Howard Phillips’s national television show on public access channels, Conservative Roundtable, chose only two Constitution Party national candidates to showcase as featured guests in the Washington, D. C. studio connected to Morton Blackwell’s Leadership Institute. Lou Wein, the Constitution Party candidate for the U. S. Senate in New York was one. The other was the Constitution Party candidate for the U. S. Senate in Delaware—Mark Dankof. The published archives for the show reveal that I was interviewed by Phillips in July of 2000, show episode 237.
Steve Farina, a System Engineer and System Programmer in Delaware in 2000 (now in Massachusetts), also has a different memory of what happened there in 2000 from that of Howard Phillips. Mr. Farina, and his wife Liz, hosted a meeting in their home in The First State to promote my candidacy and organizational efforts for the Constitution Party. Steve recently commented on Timmerman’s smear in Accuracy in Media on LinkedIn by stating that:
“I sat in my den with Mark [Dankof], Howard [Phillips], Jim Clymer [the National Chairman of the Constitution Party in 2000], and some Constitution Party supporters from around Delaware in 2000. There is no doubt that Howard [Phillips] and all involved recognized Mark [Dankof] as the ‘anointed’ candidate for the U. S. Senate seate in Delaware.”
Saved e-mails, official letters under Phillips’s signature sent to me, as well as what is in the public record from 2000, will also corroborate who is telling the truth, if the issue is pressed.
As for my ex-friend, I reiterate my request. I demand a public apology for publicly uttered untruth issued with clear malicious intent.
There is a simple second second request. If you desire to continue working with War Party stooges to promote World War III on behalf of Israel, Central Bankers, and the New World Order, please cease and desist with your Political Cross-Dressing as an America First patriot and Constitutionalist.
It’s time to be honest and Come Out of the Closet, Howard. To quote John Lennon in Imagine, “It’s Easy if You Try.” It should be especially easy when you’re about to hang it up.
Postscripts: The interview I did with Howard Phillips at his Conservative Caucus headquarters in Washington in 1998 for the German Lutheran weekly Christian News, was re-posted by World Net Daily and is ironically entitled “The Last Honorable Politician.”
Richard Mellon Scaife is the chief financial backer of Accuracy in Media. Check out the Rense listing for “Israel Moles Behind 9-11 and Iraq War: The Pollard Affair Never Ended which reposts the work of the Executive Intelligence Review. It tells us that:
On July 8, 1996, Richard Perle, now the Chairman of the Defense Policy Board, an advisory group that reports to Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, presented a written document to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, spelling out a new Israeli foreign policy, calling for a repudiation of the Oslo Accords and the underlying concept of “land for peace”; for the permanent annexation of the entire West Bank and Gaza Strip; and for the elimination of the Saddam Hussein regime in Baghdad, as a first step towards overthrowing or destabilizing the governments of Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Iran. The document was prepared for the Jerusalem and Washington, D.C.-based Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies (IASPS), a think tank financed by Richard Mellon-Scaife. The report, “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm,” was co-authored by Perle; Douglas Feith, currently the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Policy; David Wurmser, currently special assistant to State Department chief arms control negotiator John Bolton; and Meyrav Wurmser, now director of Mideast Policy at the Hudson Institute.
Richard Mellon Scaife is number #2 among those financing Islamophobia in the United States at the behest of the Zionist State, according to the Center for American Progress (CAP). Edward Spannaus’s expose on Richard Mellon Scaife for the Executive Intelligence Review is also revealing.
Mother Jones gives its spin on Howard Phillips.
Howard Phillips has announced his retirement from the Conservative Caucus. See the Conservative Times story.
Mantiq al-Tayr weighs in on Howard Phillips, Kenneth R. Timmerman, Larry Klayman, Morton Blackwell, William A. Rusher, Paul Weyrich, Marvin Leibman, Chris Bedford of the “New Guard” Magazine of the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), and other Zionists and Zionist-fellow travelers in an essay entitled, “Stealth Zionism.” This piece chronicles the briefing of Howard Phillips and his Conservative Caucus entourage in Israel by Benjamin Netanyahu himself. . . .
The Habilian Association of Iran talks to American conservative and Taft-Buchanan Republican Mark Dankof about Israel, American foreign policy in the Middle East and Asia, and the role of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/MKO/PMOI) in both. A past Republican Party District Chairman in Seattle, Washington; U. S. Senate candidate in Delaware in 2000 for Howard Phillips’s Constitution Party; and radio voice in recent years with Lebanese-American Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth, Dankof also serves as a Lutheran clergyman in San Antonio, Texas and theological graduate student. His last academic degree’s thesis will deal with the subject of Christian Zionism and the latter’s role in shaping a pro-Israel American foreign policy. Mr. Dankof’s recent appearances on Iran’s Press TV are augmented by his opinion-editorials, which include, “The Red Ladies: Sara Flounders and Debra Sweet,” “Mark Dankof’s Final Word on Michael Collins Piper’s ‘Final Judgment’ on Israel and the Assassination of JFK,” “The Bank Markazi Blacklist Proposal: Straight out of the McCollum Memorandum and the FDR Playbook for War,” “2012 Options for The Real Right: But is it Too Late? ,” and “Rapture Rick Perry of Texas: Israel’s Stealth GOP Presidential Candidate? “
Habilian Association: Tell us about Intelligence collaboration between the MKO and the Israeli Mossad over Iran’s nuclear case.
Mark Dankof: Information from non-classified sources is circumstantial but overwhelmingly strong. Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal-State Fullerton, probably the leading authoritative source in the United States on the MEK, and its presently functional relationship with the Israeli Mossad and elements in the American intelligence community, has publicly stated via his own sources that the MEK is the leading tool of Israeli intelligence and American Neo-Conservatives in the latter’s espionage agencies in launching acts of destablization and violence directed at Iran’s current government and conducted illegally within Iranian borders. Foote identifies the PJAK, the offshoot of the Kurdish separatist PKK, and the Jundallah, as the other elements in this dangerous game. The MEK’s fingerprints in Tehran are joined by what seems to be a cooperative relationship with PJAK directed against the Iranian government in efforts launched from northeast Iraq and the Qandil Mountains and directed against Iranian Azerbaijan. And suspicious terror activities in Khuzestan and Diyala Provinces in recent years seem to be augmented by bomb blasts and terror killings in Balochistan Province in Iran where it appears that the MEK’s partner-in-crime is the Jundallah based in Pakistan. But again, the Hidden Hand is comprised of the obvious, bigger ultimate players and assets. The increase in PKK attacks on Turkey since May 2009 coincides exactly with the corresponding time frames of the Turkish government’s public beefs with Israel over the Mavi Marmara shoot-up and other formal Erdogan government protests against the actions of the Netanyahu regime in Gaza and elsewhere. What does this tell any of us? But for the Israeli Mossad, the American CIA, the British MI6, and their respective Commanders-in-Chief, the operative concept is “plausible deniability.”
Mainstream American governmental and media sources confirm publicly that the MEK is the source of the information being used by pro-Israeli American Neo-Conservatives to argue for a military attack on Iran to preemptively strike the latter’s alleged weaponized nuclear program and its suppposed desire to use it against Israel. It is noteworthy that this “information” contradicts the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) report prepared by the 16 intelligence agencies of the American national security establishment regarding Iran and its nuclear program. Worse yet, there have been repeated allegations in the international press corroborated by Israel’s critics in the American intelligence community that these MEK-generated reports and the lies in them being repeated incessantly by every War Party news agency from CNN to Fox News, World Net Daily, The Weekly Standard, NewsMax, and National Review, are in fact nothing more than the Israeli government’s brokering of deliberate agitation-propaganda to the voluminously gullible and ignorant consumers of these well-packaged charades which employ the MEK as the broker. I believe Philip Giraldi of the Council for the National Interest and Buchanan’s The American Conservative, and former CIA station chief in a couple of different places over the years, is among those making this charge. In essence, it would appear to be the case beyond a shadow of a doubt that the MEK is playing the same Judas Goat role for the American and Israeli intelligence establishments that the Iraqi National Congress (INC) and Ahmad Chalabi did with their brokered nonsense before the last American invasion of Iraq that Saddam Hussein possessed “Weapons of Mass Destruction.” This is a critical angle to this present story involving the MEK. Why should the people of the United States and honest policy makers in Washington (all 10 of them?) now believe sources on Iran in 2011 with every motive for lying and a past record of doing so, especially in the last ten years?
After the last assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran, Newsweek magazine all but confirmed the role of the Mossad and the MEK in that murder (and the previous episodes as well). The coverage was preposterously positive regarding these killings. To put into perspective just how this ruthless game is played, your readers may find it interesting that when the late Sidney Harman owned Newsweek, his wife was California Democratic Congressman Jane Harman, a member of the House Intelligence Committee. According to Pat Buchanan, Mrs. Harman was overheard on an American National Security Agency (NSA) wiretap assuring some Israelis at the other end of the conversation that she would use her considerable and covert influence on Capitol Hill to have American prosecutors drop their espionage case against Weissman and Rosen of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) for illegally obtaining classified National Security Council (NSC) documents on Iran from one Larry Franklin, so-called NSC expert on Iran. This is just one example of how American financial, political, and media power always seems to intersect when it comes to the subject of Israel. And since Israel and the MEK are now full business partners in directing their animus at Iran, the MEK will draw an increasingly free pass in the American media and government, as long as they are doing the Mossad and Israeli Lobby’s bidding.
All of this of course, increases the moral bankruptcy of this policy mix exponentially, when considered in conjunction with the clearly established fact that Israel is the weaponized nuclear monolith of the Middle East; has never and presumably will never submit to any form of international inspection of its nuclear program, not to mention its known stockpile of every biological and chemical warfare agent known to humanity; while the Zionist State’s policies in Occupied Territories and Gaza, as evidenced by its military assault on the civilian Mavi Marmara humanitarian flotilla in international waters in May of 2009, and the earlier Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, are the acts of an increasingly desperate entity led by a criminal cabal of sociopaths. If the United States is worrying about nuclear weapons in the hands of the wrong people, it should start with taking a hard look at our leading “ally” in the region. But the money trail will keep that from ever happening. . . .
Habilian Association: What do you know about further Israeli support for Mujahedin-e Khalq, I mean financially, logistically…?
Mark Dankof: One presumes that the Israeli and American money trails going to and from the MEK are closely guarded black-operational intelligence secrets not necessarily even known in details and numbers by the denizens of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. Or shall we say, at least not known to anyone on those Committees of Alleged Oversight not in the back political and financial pocket of the Israeli Lobby. That in and of itself, raises a related issue—the amount of PAC money going into American elections from approximately 30 PACS known to have direct or disguised links to the Israeli monolith in this country, as chronicled by Janet McMahon and Hugh Galford of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA).
One recent news article is most suggestive, however. That is Elizabeth Rubin’s New York Times op-ed of August 13th, “An Iranian Cult and its American Friends.”
This article, in the most Corporate Establishment, pro-Zionist newspaper in America (along with The Washington Post), underscores that the MEK is exactly what the Habilian Association, Mark Dankof, Ed Blanche of The Middle East desk in Beirut, and the RAND Corporation say it is: a totalitarian cult which not only possesses a warped “Islamic-Marxist” ideology that is inherently contradictory, but is led by Miryam and Masoud Rajavi in a fashion reminiscent of that which governed the Reverend Jim Jones’ leadership of his demonic religious cult at Jonestown a generation ago in Guyana. Even more significantly, the Elizabeth Rubin expose provides a laundry list of people in the American military, intelligence, and political establishments who are fraudulently working to have the MEK removed from the State Department terrorist organization list and subsequently legitimized. This would be bad enough, but they are doing it for money—plenty of it, to the tune of $25,000 to $50,000 a speaking engagement on the MEK’s behalf. (see the excellent RAND Corporation report on the MEK at RAND_MG871 MEK PAPER )
Most critically, Rubin’s essay is potent for what it doesn’t say, and is patently obvious to anyone familiar with the subject: These paid American denizens of pro-MEK activities and plans have Israel’s fingerprints all over them. The names in her article overlap with the Israeli oriented think tanks Inside the Beltway, and the Israeli money on Capitol Hill documented by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA). One does not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what is going on here. This is ultimately the Israeli Lobby and the government of Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman at work for apocalyptically nefarious purposes.
The Elizabeth Rubin New York Times expose also mentions the “millions” at the disposal of the MEK for its current public relations campaign in the United States, using these bought-and-paid for players in the American establishment. It begs the question: Where do Miryam and Masoud Rajivi and the MEK get this kind of money? On what basis does Elizabeth Rubin cite the ambiguous but potent term “millions” to describe their financial power? How many “millions” are we talking about specifically? And what rag-tag “Islamic-Marxist” cult presently camped out in Paris and Camp Ashraf can have “millions” to dispense on political hired guns in America without major outside sources of funding? And who are these outside sources of this kind of cash? Oil and banking come to mind as possible places to look. Beyond that, one doesn’t have to look too much further to find Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Israel Lobby in the United States, and international oil consortiums, as the chief targets of suspicions as to who and what really constitutes the force behind the attempted renovation of the MEK’s image and fortunes in the West.
Rubin’s New York Times piece of August 13th is also noteworthy for what it doesn’t mention or explain: The MEK’s most well-heeled and connected American power broker is the Iran Policy Committee of Dr. Raymond Tanter of Georgetown University, his colleague Clair Lopez of the Central Intelligence Agency, and the assortment of Israeli oriented think tanks and individuals who shadow the Iran Policy Committee, including the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) strongly linked to Dr. Tanter. This picture is abundantly clear, despite the reticence of The New York Times, at least to this point, to cover the real players and angles in the story.
Perhaps the most spicy and inflammable aspect of the story of Dr. Raymond Tanter, Clair Lopez, and the Iran Policy Committee involves the explosive divorce of Raymond Tanter from his ex-wife, Constance Tanter. Mrs. Tanter alleges a most incredible tale of international intrigue that resulted in the targeted demise of her marriage, career, and personal life, up to and including the specific charge that at the direction of her ex-husband, the MEK and Clair Lopez forcibly held Constance Tanter captive; transported her against her will to Paris, France; and subjected the Georgetown University professor’s wife to a coercive interrogation in the French capital designed to extort a signed capitulation to a divorce settlement characterized by Mrs. Tanter as literal robbery at gunpoint. If Constance Tanter is telling the truth, Madam Rajavi was personally present for her interrogation and forced capitulation to a dictated divorce decree introduced into the American court system after the fact.
Are the charges true? Outsiders who have heard the allegations are at one level incredulous, yet uncommitted because of the cultic history of the Rajavis chronicled by Ed Blanche of The Middle East and other internationally credible sources.
One thing is crystal clear: Mrs. Tanter is taking her allegations to The New York Times and other outlets who have already covered the MEK’s activities up to this point. Her allegations are buttressed by a thick file of papers, diary notes, photostatically reproduced copies of Iran Policy Committee documents, and a complete list of the Iran Policy Committee’s e-mail contacts by name and accompanying e-mail addresses. That list represents a virtual Who’s Who of the American Neo-Conservative, pro-Zionist Right; major figures in the Israeli government and intelligence community; MEK assets around the globe; and major players in a number of world governments and media outlets who seem to have more than a passing involvement with what Elizabeth Rubin terms, “An Iranian Cult.” This story continues to unfold.
Habilian Association: What’s the role of Israel in the Iranophobia project and the creation of a false dichotomy between Iran and its neighboring countries? What would Israel find beneficial in playing a role in this ?
Mark Dankof: This one is easy. Any Internet search on the Iranophobia and Islamophobia projects internationally leads straight to Israel and its assets in the American Neo-Conservative Right. The Center for American Progress report is among those that lead straight to the key players in the creation, funding, and dissemination of the Iranophobia and Islamophobia seeping out of Daniel Pipes, Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney, Kenneth R. Timmerman, Stephen Emerson, and the Israeli foundations, PACS, and media outlets. This is a no-brainer. The way these jokers spun the Breivik murders in Norway is a primer for the way they do business in virtually everything else. I keep waiting for these kosher Ken and Barbie Dolls to explain Zionism’s history with the United States going back to the relationship of the Meyer Lansky Crime Syndicate to the Jewish Haganah’s blowing up of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, the Lavon Affair, the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, the PROMIS affair, the Pollard spy case, and the recent AIPAC spy cases. Frankly the Pipes, Geller, Gaffney, Emerson crowd reminds me of the old Colt 45 malt liquor TV commercials in the United States, where the guy sitting at the cafe table by himself in the middle of the bullfighter ring is oblivious to the real wars taking place all around him that constantly get closer to enveloping him while he quietly sips his drink. The pro-Zionist American Right and Left are just like this: focusing on an exaggerated and falsified threat, while ignoring the major player in the destruction of their national security, culture, political integrity, and economy. It is pathetic.
This is a $42 million dollar industry, the production and dissemination of the constant stream of anti-Iranian, anti-Islamic propaganda in the United States and Europe. Someone is paying for it, and finds it profitable to continue paying for it.
By the way, the classic example for our discussion is this: Who produced and paid for the anti-Iranian propaganda film, Iranium, being promoted by Eric Cantor, Sam Brownback, Joseph Lieberman, and the usual suspects on Capitol Hill? I don’t yet have the facts, but the promotional film available on the Internet is connected to Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy. The television spokesperson for the film is none other than Clair Lopez of the Iran Policy Committee and the Central Intelligence Agency. Get the picture?
Habilian Association: What is your estimation of the recent American accusation of Iran’s attempt to kill the Saudi Arabian ambassador to US?
Mark Dankof: I believe the accusation is absurd on its very face. As I told Press TV the other night, the nature of this alleged plot presupposes that the Supreme Leader of Iran, the Guardians Council, President Ahmadinejad, and the leadership of the Islamic Republican Guard Corps are all idiots. They clearly are not. There is no way that anyone acquainted with the intelligence and shrewdness of these Iranian leaders would buy for one minute the notion that they would commission a plot as reckless as this one, with two Iranian individuals representing the unstable profiles of the accused, and in conjunction with an unproven asset in a Mexican drug cartel (who proved to be an American DEA informant). This is straight out of the Keystone Cops.
And when we ask who might have benefited by a false-flag operation of this type pinned on Iran, the clear answer is Israel and its Neo-Conservative agents of influence in the American government angling for a wider war in the Middle East. Israel does not want any regional power in the Middle East threatening its absolute hegemony in the region, especially Iran. Simultaneously, they need an international PR diversion from their illegal activities in Gaza, the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and elsewhere, where the Zionist State is clearly losing catastrophically in international opinion in every known venue outside that of the United States. Even in the case of the latter, there are evidences of cracks in the canvas where the Netanyahu government is concerned. And between the ominous downturn in the American national economy, and the upcoming Presidential election in 2012 where Obama and his GOP opponents are tripping over each other to demonstrate which has the most absolute fealty to American Jewry and the Israeli Lobby’s entrenched position on the Hill, the aggregate picture suggests the identity of the leading candidates for using this so-called Saudi Envoy Assassination Plot for their own non-publicly-advertised purposes and agendas.
And now that there is a published allegation that Interpol in France has established an MEK-link and affiliation for the second terror suspect now in custody, the odor becomes even more pungent. Yesterday’s New York Times made reference to this allegation, but only in a small strip column on page A8. Where is Elizabeth Rubin on this one? Or is the Israeli scent to the trail one her bosses have told her not to follow? We shall see. Mrs. Rubin’s July 13th, 2003 essay, “The Cult of Rajavi,” taken in tandem with her story of August 13th this year on the MEK, fills in many blanks. Will she fill in the rest of them, and connect the rest of the dots for the composite portrait on the canvas? If she should do so, some sordid people will run pell mell for the exits. If she doesn’t, American Corporate/Zionist media will have failed the acid test one more time.
Habilian Association: After all these many years, you should visit in Iran again.
Mark Dankof: Time and political developments will determine whether or not God will grant me that special privilege. If I do get the chance to come, it is my intention to also visit Yerevan and some of the Christian monsteries in Armenia, maybe in conjunction with another pilgrimage to the Armenian Christian Festival of St. Thaddeus at the Church of St. Stephanos in Azerbaijan Iran. My own feelings about your country are best expressed by your 10th century poet, Ferdowsi. I understand that chiseled on his stone tomb at Tus is an inscription of his immortal words which state, “Let not this body live if there is no Iran.”
“Wow! Not even a whiff of a notion of the Presidency, and his lips are already lotioned to kiss ass.”
—Iranian-American Facebook blogger on Governor Rick Perry’s Zionist-inspired impending Presidential run
P. T. Barnum aptly observed that there is a “sucker born every minute.” In the case of the Tea Party activist movement, the birth rate may be one every second. The prospects for the movement, and the country, are identically both abysmal and comedic. Perhaps tragedy is truly the flip side of comedy.
What is presently happening in 2011 in the Republican Presidential sweepstakes can be understood against the backdrop of the 1996 GOP wars. 15 years ago, the International Central Bankers, Neo-Conservatives, anti-Catholic bigots, and the ever present Christian Zionist nutcases were having collective heart failure over the prospect of a Pat Buchanan nomination. For the most part, Buchanan wasn’t rising above 30% of the vote in any given primary (save Michigan after the battle had already been decided), but in the early going those figures packed considerable clout in a multi-candidate field, resulting in a victory in the Louisiana caucus that finished Phil Grimm, and a first-round victory in the kickoff New Hampshire primary. It was clear that Tricky Dick’s ex-speechwriter was terrifying the power brokers.
It became necessary for these brokers to develop a playbook to destroy Pat Buchanan.
The playbook that successfully accomplished this purpose included the following three components: 1) enlisting Israeli-asset Alan Keyes, William Kristol’s roommate at Harvard, to enter the Iowa caucus to divide the conservative vote and ensure Bob Dole’s ensuing victory and subsequent drive to the nomination; and 2) tapping the Christian Coalition’s Ralph Reed as Dole’s liaison to the Religious Right, ensuring the Faithful that Dole was a Pro-Life Evangelical (a crock) and a 10th Amendment man (another crock).
Reed’s enlisted effort for this political fraud was successful, despite the clear voting paper trail of Dole in the U. S. Senate, and the problematically untidy issue of the Senator’s impregnation of a campaign worker while running for President in 1980 against Reagan. Conservative Caucus Chairman Howard Phillips printed the evidence on this latter scandal, compounded in damage potential by the published proof that Dole Chief-of-Staff Craig Fuller had taken the lady to an abortionist in Kansas City named Dr. William Crist. Ralph Reed helped to insure that this information never came to light in Evangelical circles. His service to Dole and the New World Order establishment lurking in the darkness behind the senior Senator from Kansas, went a long way toward the development of the client list and the greenbacks for his current Creative Consultants operation, which has included business with such Godly people as Jack Abramoff.
Climatically, Reed’s slimy presence was augmented in the playbook by the third ingredient in the carefully devised game plan, 3) the entrance of William F. Buckley’s pro-Zionist National Review into the 1996 GOP Presidential foray, employed in a joint effort with the mainstream Time, Newsweek, and U. S. News and World Report magazines, in collectively assailing Pat Buchanan on cue as an anti-Semite whose views were totally outside the mainstream of the Republican Party.
The pivotal importance and critical significance of the William F. Buckley angle to the Israeli Lobby’s assault on Pat Buchanan is given its proper historical context by Dr. E. Michael Jones of Culture Wars, in his April 2007 essay in that publication entitled, “The Death of Conservatism.” The Jones piece is a review of the late Murray Friedman’s magnum opus, “The Neo-Conservative Revolution: Jewish Intellectuals and the Shaping of Public Policy” [Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2005]. There, Jones informs us via Friedman, that National Review was essentially run by the Jews who employed it and financed Bill Buckley, for the express purpose of hijacking the American conservative movement for the “ruling class internationalist establishment” and its accompanying Zionist interests, in the process destroying the careers of prominent spokesmen in the movement not co-opted by the hidden hand. These careers included the late Joe Sobran and Sam Francis, and, of course, Patrick J. Buchanan. Jewish activists like Frank Meyer, Frank Chodorov, Morrie Raskin, Willi Schlamm, and Marvin Liebman were the power behind the emerging William F. Buckley persona on the national political scene, especially Schlamm, who drew up the publication’s financial plan, and Liebman, the guru of subscriber recruitment and financing. Jones notes the specifics of the Marvin Liebman biography for the purpose of contextualizing The Lobby’s unfurling plan of deployment of both Buckley and his flagship magazine over the decades to follow:
“What conservatism lacked in philosophical coherence, however, it made up for in effective political organizing techniques which its ‘founding Jewish fathers’ remembered from their days in the Communist Party. Or from their days in Zionist terrorist organizations.
“In terms of organization, the most influential of [William F.] Buckley’s ‘circle of Jews’ was a former communist who came to conservatism via Zionism, in particular via the terrorist organization known as Irgun Zvai Leumi. His name was Marvin Liebman and in addition to serving as publisher of National Review, he created the fund-raising technique known as direct mail, which would play a major role in the political movements surrounding Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan.
“In 1946 Liebman was captured trying to smuggle Jews into Palestine and held in a British detention camp on Cyprus for 15 days. . . .”
Buckley’s National Review thus became the prototype of other front publications and outlets making their appearance on the American Right in the years that followed, including William Kristol’s The Weekly Standard, Christopher Ruddy’s NewsMax, Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, the Unification Church’s Washington Times, Human Events, and Joseph Farah’s Internet-based World Net Daily. Along with the Israeli-controlled American Religious Right print and broadcasting operations, ranging from the Scofield Reference Bible to John Hagee’s syndicated television show, these opinion makers have enabled the Zionist State and its domestic American power brokers to effectively gain a stranglehold on the promotion of Republican political candidates who reflect Tel Aviv’s interests exclusively, even as Israel’s real record of performance since 1948 is systematically withheld from unsuspecting grassroots American conservatives who vote in Republican primaries.
Now fast forward to 2012. It is clear that the only candidate in the GOP Presidential field not totally co-opted by multi-national corporate interests, the New World Order, and the Christian Zionist zealots being used skillfully by the first two constituencies, is Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX/14th Congressional District).
Paul’s strong suits are the ability to raise money, and the role he plays as the sole candidate in the field talking about the dangers of a Federal Reserve-run monetary policy and an interventionist foreign policy. His weaker points involve less strength than desired as a television media candidate, and his advancing age (75). There is another vulnerability, noted in my op-ed of last week: the fact that the Congressman has finessed the eternal question of the Zionist State of Israel, and its accompanying American domestic Jewish lobby, despite the fact that his expressed views on major topics would seem to lead, inexorably, to an inevitable public discussion of this matter in the developing Presidential primary campaign in the Republican Party.
How The Lobby and its Neo-Conservative agents of influence handle the Paul candidacy in the coming months will make for one of the more interesting stories of the 2012 campaign for the American Presidency. With a primary campaign season that is deliberately front-loaded, one may anticipate the early nomination of an internationalist Republican Presidential candidate by Super Tuesday next year and the quick fade of a Ron Paul candidacy that is now in its third cycle since his initial run on the Libertarian ticket in 1988.
But if Paul surprises the pundits and achieves early electoral successes akin to those of Pat Buchanan in 1996, he needs to get ready for an assault similar to that launched on Nixon’s speechwriter 15 years ago. Arguably the Congressman makes a far more difficult target for slander and character assassination than Buchanan did at the hands of Abe Foxman and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL), but this fact will not preclude what will come if the Representative of Texas’s 14th Congressional District confounds conventional political wisdom and gets out of the starting gate early as a contender for the Presidential nomination of the GOP. As Iran’s Press TV reports, Ron Paul’s enemies already plan to gerrymander him out of business. The playbook’s gameplan in 2011 will escalate well beyond that beginning venture, if future circumstances dictate. Watch your back, Good Doctor.
This then begs the obvious question. If The Lobby is successful as usual in preempting the candidacy of a candidate who threatens it, who among the bought-and-paid for wannabes in the Republican Presidential Sweepstakes will emerge as The Anointed for the fall of 2012?
The answer: Rapture Rick Perry, the Governor of Texas.
Perry’s heightened visibility recently seems to coincide with Netanyahu’s recent Washington trip. It was abundantly obvious to any informed observer that the Israeli PM was sending a clear message to Barack Obama and the Democratic Party that The Lobby had other options if the President’s Middle East policy proved to be less than a total lock for AIPAC and Friends.
And the Texas Governor’s credentials with the Zionist State, bankers, military contractors, and the Christian Right prove absolutely impeccable. Perry’s stop in Los Angeles today to assail Mr. Obama on the latter’s position on abortion is tailor made to appeal to the constituency left panting by Mike Huckabee’s mysterious withdrawal from The Sweepstakes, and the failure thus far of alternatives ranging from Michelle Bachmann to Sarah Palin to catch early fire with the followers of Pastor John Hagee of Cornerstone Church/San Antonio, and the odious Christians United for Israel (CUFI) front.
Those credentials were solidified in a June 2007 junket to Israel, paid for by Irwin Katsof’s Global Capital Associates and the Doheny Global Group which includes Tom Ridge as a Strategic Limited Partner. This trip, and its financiers, provide the Rosetta Stone necessary to decipher the forces behind the sudden media ascendancy of Rick Perry approaching 2012.
And not coincidentally, June 2007 was the same month and year according to Democratic Underground, that Governor Perry was an invited guest of the shadowy international Bilderberg Group. Paul Burka, columnist for Texas Monthly reported then that the Texas Governor was joined by:
“Kathleen Sibelius, governor of Kansas; Kristen Silverberg, Assistant Secretary of State; Ross Wilson, ambassador to Turkey; Paul Wolfowitz, World Bank; Philip Zelikow, ex-“9/11″ Commissioner; Richard Holbrooke, Perseus LLC; Vernon Jordan Jr., Lazard Freres & Co.; Henry Kravis, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR); Henry Kissinger, Kissinger & Associates; Richard Perle, Ex-Defense Policy Board, and several others.”
Burka then went to note that:
“. . . Gov. Rick Perry is headed to Israel to receive the Friend of Zion Award for his ‘leadership in homeland defense, border security, and economic development. . . . Gov. Rick Perry and First Lady Anita Perry today left on a seven-day trip to visit the Middle East nations of Israel and Jordan. In Israel, Gov. Perry will receive the ‘Friend of Zion Award’ from the Global Leadership Council for his leadership in homeland defense, border security and economic development. The award, which is given to ‘leaders who have played key roles in promoting the close alliance between America and the Jewish state,’ will be presented during a ceremony in Jerusalem at the historic Western Wall Square.
“Perry is also scheduled to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and former Prime Minister and newly elected President Shimon Peres. In addition, he will meet with the Israeli Chief Scientist, Dr. Eli Opper, and several representatives of the aeronautics, defense systems, homeland security and biotechnology industries. . . .”
One thing is absolutely sure in Campaign 2012: No one will ask Perry in Corporate Media about his chats with these Israeli intelligence and scientific moguls against the backdrop of the charge recently made by Philip Giraldi on Iranian Press TV that Israel engages in more spying and technology theft against the United States than any other American “ally.” Giraldi is the ex-CIA Station Chief in Turkey, Executive Director of the Council for the National Interest , and columnist for The American Conservative. How much of Israel’s espionage operation targeting the United States may involve Global Capital Associates, the Doheny Global Group, and the Perry-backed Texas-Israel Chamber of Commerce would make for an interesting research project for Mr. Giraldi and his Council.
And as for the American Presidential “debates” promulgated by CNN and Fox News, here are a few suggestions for material to be directed toward the Governor of the Lone Star State when his hat is thrown into the ring:
“Governor Perry, how do you feel about a fiat American currency, a direct Federal income tax, usurious interest rates, endless foreign wars, a morally polluted American culture, an economic globalism which has destroyed the once-vaunted American manufacturing economy, and the imposition of a domestic technological surveillance structure that threatens to replace the freedoms of our beloved Old Republic with a repristinated Stalinism?
“Governor Perry, why is the domestic and foreign policy of the modern American conservative movement and the Republican party being defined by a view of Biblical prophecy unheard of until the 19th century, and largely promoted worldwide by the House of Rothschild’s distribution of the Scofield Reference Bible through its Oxford University Press? Secondly, why are we in an alliance with a nation that has repeatedly committed crimes against the United States, including the Lavon Affair, Mossad involvement in the Kennedy assassination, the premeditated attack on the USS Liberty in June of 1967, the Pollard spy case, participation with Communist China in the theft of American nuclear secrets at Los Alamos through the PROMIS affair, and the more recent Ben Ami Kadish and AIPAC/Rosen/Weissman spy cases?
“Governor Perry, given your recent attacks on Barack Obama in Los Angeles over the President’s position on abortion, why are we in an alliance as American conservatives and evangelical Christians with a domestic Jewish lobby which has militantly supported and financed the radical feminist, abortion, and homosexual lobbies most of us are sworn to oppose?
“Governor Perry, why are we, as a pro-life movement, committed to policies of genocide against the Palestinians and the advocacy of the mass murder of Iranians, at the behest of an ‘ally’ which is the chief nuclear, biological, and chemical military power in the Middle East, and a non-signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) signed, however, by Iran?
“And why, Governor Perry, are you here today talking about recovering American Constitutional Principles, in the context of ongoing obeisance to the chief players in a central banking cabal which has handed to us the direct Federal income tax, the Federal Reserve Board, $14 trillion in national debt, and every globalist trade treaty that has destroyed both American sovereignty and our economic vitality?
“Governor Perry, why are you not concerned with Philip Giraldi’s charge that Israeli intelligence is promoting agitation-propaganda through the Rupert Murdoch News Corp chain designed to begin a Third World War? Why are you silent about the charges of our ex-CIA Station Chief in Turkey regarding Israeli infiltration of our intelligence agencies, our Homeland Security Department, our Transportation Safety Administration (TSA), and our telecommunications industry?
“Governor Perry, should AIPAC and John Hagee’s Christians United for Israel be forced to register as agents of a foreign government?
“And Governor Perry, do you support the utilization of nuclear weapons against Iran and its people?”
The American people would await the answers in these upcoming Presidential debates, if only they knew what the real questions of the campaign are. . . .
Does Ron Paul?

One always remembers where he or she was when first hearing about or witnessing the great pivotal turning points in history.
December 18th, 2010 is such a day. I was in an American diner on the north side of San Antonio for lunch, when the big screen TV in the restaurant telecast CNN’s “Breaking News” report that the United States Senate had voted 65-31 to remove any remaining restrictions on the inclusion of open, practicing homosexuals and lesbians in the Armed Forces of the United States.
The self-congratulatory trinity chosen to face CNN’s international audience in the post-vote Senatorial gala for the winning side were Joseph Lieberman (I-Connecticut), Carl Levin (D-Michigan), and Harry Reid (D-Nevada). The financial figures on Israeli PACs published by Hugh Galford and Janet McMahon of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA), reveal that all three are major lackeys of the Israeli Lobby. Jews Lieberman and Levin are arguably the heaviest hitters in the U. S. Senate for the Tribe; Mr. Netanyahu; and the Mossad’s thinly disguised marriage to the American military and intelligence nexus, telecommunications giants, think-tanks, news media, publishing houses, and Wall Street and Homeland Security establishments. The monies used to elect (read hire) these men are dollars well spent. Galford and McMahon match the Israeli Lobby’s PAC expenditures with the voting records of these major denizens of Zionist Occupied Territory (ZOA), as Pat Buchanan used to term it.
Zionist zealots allegedly on the other side of the political aisle, notably rotund “Christian” Right blowhard John Hagee of San Antonio’s Cornerstone Church, and AIPAC-vetted Sarah Palin [tapped by Israeli-asset William Kristol of The Weekly Standard to be John McCain's running mate], fail to notice how their good friend at Christians United for Israel (CUFI) meetings, Mr. Lieberman, has served as point man for the homosexual lobby’s greatest victory in its warfare on the older Christian culture in America since the Stonewall Inn uprising in New York in 1969.
In the last analysis however, the “Christian” Right and a Jewish-controlled and financed American Neo-Conservative movement, will overlook such contradictions with their stated belief system on culture wars in America.
The reason is as morally, theologically, and politically warped as it is transparently clear. Dispensational premillennial eschatology, trans-national multinationals and central bankers, and black-operational state intelligence agencies, are now inexorably wedded to one another in the coalescence of the components of the New World Order. The unfolding results are disastrous for both the United States and the planet.
Nowhere is this unfolding disaster more tragically apparent than in Iran, where the December 20th Newsweek cover story all but concedes the American and Israeli intelligence community’s link to the recent assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists in Tehran, and the concurrent bombings in Diyala and Chabahar provinces in that country. These recent premeditated murders, along with atrocities past in Iranian Azerbaijan, Khuzestan, and Balochistan, are all chiefly the on-site work of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK), with occasional assists from the Kurdish PKK and Jundallah organizations.
That Newsweek magazine would virtually concede the link between the terrorist MEK, PKK, and Jundallah organizations on the one hand, and American/Israeli intelligence on the other, underscores the work done by Ed Blanche of The Middle East magazine, Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal-State Fullerton, the Nejat Society, the Habilian Association, and yours truly. It isn’t often that Newsweek agrees with any of these sources, but access some of my past work on the MEK and compare it to their current newsstand edition.
This is no mere game being played by the American and Israeli governments. It reveals that war with Iran is already being pursued by other means. Economic sanctions, aircraft carrier task force deployments in the Persian Gulf region, the demonization of Tehran by a Jewish-dominated American media, and overt threats of preemptive strikes by the Israeli Air Force via Netanyahu, Avigdor Lieberman, and their Talmudic puppets in Washington, are now being followed by a thinly veiled strategy of employing the Communist oriented-MEK and other terror groups to commit unspeakable crimes within Iranian borders.
The Sydney Morning Herald recognizes the ultimate threat posed by the Iran policy of Israel and its American Neo-Conservative agents, and reportedly so do the intelligence chiefs of the Australian government. In a story entitled, “Australian Intelligence Chiefs Fear Nuclear War Between Israel and Iran“, the paper reports that:
Australian intelligence agencies fear that Israel might launch military strikes against Iran and that Tehran’s pursuit of nuclear capabilities could draw the US and Australia into a potential nuclear war in the Middle East. Australia’s top intelligence agency has also privately undercut the hardline stance towards Tehran of the United States, Israeli and Australian governments, saying that Iran’s nuclear program is intended to deter attack and that it is a mistake to regard Iran as a ”rogue state”.
America’s disastrous support for Israel’s policies in Palestine, Gaza, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Iran have critical domestic implications as well. As ex-CIA agent Philip Giraldi and I discussed with Iranian Press TV’s Saeed Pour Reza on December 20th, the Israeli police state at home is now matched by the American version within the borders of the continental United States. I reported on this months ago in a piece entitled, “Israel’s Agenda of Control and Death in Gaza: Coming Soon to an American Neighborhood Near You.” This madness, as chronicled by James Bovard in his essay “Assassin Nation” in the current January 2010 newsstand edition of The American Conservative, now has the Justice Department arguing in Federal Court this past November 9th, that the President of the United States has the authority to order the killing of American citizens on mere suspicion of “involvement” with “terrorist organizations.” No legal indictment. No presumption of innocence until proven guilty in a court of law. No public trial with an examination of evidence. No provision of an attorney to defend the accused. Mere suspicion will suffice, thank you. “Involvement” is not specifically defined and articulated. Neither does the American government have to explain why the organization (s) in question is defined as “terrorist” in orientation.
And my essay on “Israel’s Agenda of Control and Death in Gaza,” and Mr. Giraldi’s appearance on Iranian TV yesterday, underscore what the Washington Post conveniently omitted in its major post of December 20th on the advancement of FBI domestic spying and dossier compilements on thousands of Americans not suspected of any criminal wrongdoing: Israeli intelligence and Israeli-affiliated companies are working hand-in-glove to implement these police state policies with their American counterparts within the continental United States, utilizing TSA airport security operations, Homeland Security and “Counter-Terrorism” seminars, infiltration of the American telecommunications system and the Internet, mail surveillance, and monitoring of legitimate business and banking transactions.
It gets worse. As Mr. Giraldi recently reported in The American Conservative, my colleagues, Mark Glenn and USS Liberty survivor Phil Tourney, were both threatened in the past year after publishing “What I Saw That Day,” Mr. Tourney’s chronicle of Israel’s deliberate, premeditated attack on that American ship on June 8, 1967. Tourney and his wife were accosted in a restaurant while vacationing in San Diego, by a strange man who knew who they were. His remarks specifically referenced the book, and indicated that the threats on Mr. Tourney’s physical well-being had their origins halfway around the world. You may draw your own conclusions as to what government was being referred to in the gutter threats.
As for such occurrences in the lives of decent American citizens, we might ask what actions their government is taking to protect them. We might also ask why a domestic Jewish paramilitary group like Kitat Kohenut draws a free pass when it comes to the investigative concerns of the Federal investigatory machine of the United States. My essay, “Kitat Kohenut and the American Police State in Amerikka” chronicles the character of this group with information taken directly from their own published site on the World Wide Web. It is their stated desire to set up operations in every major city and greater metropolitan area of America. Does this concern the FBI and Homeland Security? Or will Kitat Kohenut be signing some State and Federal contracts to assist the Israeli-affiliated Institute of Terrorism Research and Response (ITRR) in the endangerment of the lives and Constitutional rights of every person in this country?
One thing is assured. Joe Lieberman and a Zionist Occupied Territory (ZOA) called Capitol Hill won’t be providing the answers. Neither will their accessories in crime in the Executive Branch, the Neo-Conservative think tanks Inside-the-Beltway, the American intelligence community, and the American news media.
In the November 9th, 2010 oral arguments in Federal Court referenced in Mr. Bovard’s aforementioned essay, Justice Department attorney Douglas Letter asserted that no judge has authority to be “looking over the shoulder” of the Obama Administration’s targeted-killing program.
Let us however, be permitted a collective look over the shoulders of Mr. Letter, Mr. Holder, and Mr. Obama, along with those of the members of the international and domestic machinery of the American/Israeli national security police state threatening Americans, Iranians, and the very survivability of the planet itself.
Three concluding questions are begged. Are the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK), Kurdish PKK, and Jundallah considered as “terrorist organizations” by the American government?
Is the Israeli government a “rogue state” and a leading perpetrator of State-Sponsored Terror?
And thirdly, what should the personal and legal fate of Americans be who are “involved” with them?
The silence is deafening.
For those of you who have trouble sleeping, I don’t recommend reading the alternative explanation of the events in New York on September 11, 2001 offered by Nashid Abdul-Khaaliq. Nor would I recommend ex-CIA station chief Philip Giraldi’s recent essay in Pat Buchanan’s “The American Conservative,” entitled “Mossad in America.”
A perpetual state of insomnia may come your way by reading these articles in conjunction with Internet releases chronicling the development of a Jewish paramilitary force in the continental United States, called Kitat Kohenut (“rapid response units“). UNM Israel Alliance’s post on this New York-based organization informs the reader that a training camp is being constructed in northern Arizona.
But Kitat Kohenut indicates that this is only the beginning of their plans for armed operations within the United States. They definitively state that:
“Our short term goal is to form rapid response teams in the larger Jewish communities in the US. These include New York, Miami and Los Angeles. Right now we are in the process of building up these Kitot Konenut (response teams) to get to the point where they are entirely self sufficient and able to cover the entire area of Jewish settlement within those urban centers, as well as their suburbs. We are starting in those areas as we see them as being the most visible, and therefore most likely targets of terrorist and antisemitic attacks.
“Our long term goal is to set up response teams in every community – no matter how big or small – throughout the US. These will include smaller communities like Houston, Dallas, Seattle, San Diego, Phoenix, Albuquerque, Chicago, Cleveland, St. Louis, Denver, Philadelphia, Detroit, Milwaukee, Atlanta, etc.”
Kitat Kohenut proceeds to describe itself as a protection force comprised of volunteer Jews, many with backgrounds in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), with a mission allegedly made necessary by the spectre of attacks on Jews in the continental United States by groups ranging from Islamic fundamentalists to poor rural whites and neo-Marxists. A perusal of their official web page and MySpace blog, along with many other posts on the Net, will create a composite profile of mission and ideology.
Yonatan Stern and Scott Brown, the heads of Kitat Kohenut, tell UNM Israel Alliance that:
“We are aware of a large and growing number of Islamic terrorist compounds popping up all around the US. In fact, one of the largest ones, ‘Islamberg’, is only a 20 minute drive from our own Israeli Military Training camp in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York. They are so close to us that we can practically hear the gunshots from their terrorist training sessions. We also know that many of these groups are affiliated with Al Queida, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Jumaat Al Islamiyya, Hezbolla, etc. They are heavily recruiting Black Americans who are incarcerated for violent crimes in prisons throughout the US. These criminals are educated in their doctrine of hate and taught to be Islamic fighters, suicide bombers, etc. Many of these Black converts, as well as Arab Americans have been captured or killed fighting coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
Stern and Brown must be kidding. Any perusal of the Homeland Security magazines at Barnes and Noble or Borders clearly reveals the Israeli intelligence community’s overt public dominance of the American Homeland Security department, and all the security seminars around the country being advertised in these publications. If an Islamic terrorist training camp is being tolerated in upstate New York, the Hidden Hand has reasons for it. And if the American Homeland Security types are afraid of Islamic Fundamentalists, Skinheads, and Neo-Nazis and their real or potential access to high-powered weaponry and paramilitary training, what about an organization dedicated to the Zionist principles of Jewish racial supremacism enforced at the point of a gun barrel?
And what about espionage operations against the people and government of the United States conducted by the State of Israel? The Lavon Affair, the USS Liberty attack on June 8, 1967, the Pollard spy case, the PROMIS affair, and the Rosen-Weissman AIPAC and Ben Ami Kadish espionage cases are but a few examples.
And then there is the Kennedy assassination. My review of Michael Collins Piper’s Final Judgment is still relevant a few years later, along with the discomforting knowledge that Israel nuclear dissident and political prisoner, Mordechai Vanunu, affirms Piper’s well substantiated thesis that the ultimate reason for Mr. Kennedy’s violent end involved his tussle with Ben Gurion over the Israeli nuclear program and international inspection of their Dimona plant. Having read thousands of pages on the subject of the end of America’s 35th President, ranging from Anthony Summers’s Conspiracy to David Lifton’s Best Evidence and Jim Marrs’s Crossfire: The Plot that Killed Kennedy, I found Piper’s thesis to be inherently preposterous—until I read the book.
And then there is September 11, 2001, and what Israeli intelligence and American neo-conservatives now have planned in the nature of a preemptive strike on Iran as an expansion of the present disasters in Iraq and Afghanistan.
How will such ongoing insanity be sold to an American public sick of endless war, national debt, declining economy, and cultural cancer?
The tried-and-true methods of the past will be dredged up again. A false flag operation will occur, presumably tied to Iran. Jewish-owned American media consortiums, and Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, will sell the official line on the meaning of the event and the identity of the perpetrators. Executive Orders will end freedom of expression on the Internet, and establish draconian domestic suppression of responsible dissent well beyond that already produced by the USA Patriot Acts and the panoply of similar legislation post-2001.
Posse Comitatus will end. The American military will assume un-Constitutional powers in domestic law enforcement. Illegal warrantless electronic surveillance of law-abiding American citizens will increase. Demonization of honest opponents of international and domestic policies perpetrated by the advocates of the New World Order will outstrip anything heretofore experienced.
And then there is Kitat Kohenut. Is it an armed citizens’ movement designed to protect Jewish-Americans from criminal predators, foreign and domestic?
Or is it the ultimate Fifth Column, an IDF/Mossad false flag operation and kidon team being ultimately trained and placed in every American community of substance, an instrument for bringing a 21st century version of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 to these United States?
The sinking of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitania, FDR’s machinations on Pearl Harbor as chronicled by Robert Stinnett, the assassination of John Kennedy, the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, and the events of September 11, 2001 in New York are terrifyingly suggestive. Yes, another tried-and-true false flag incendiary is coming. On this point there can be little doubt.
But the ultimate question is this: Will the American public buy it this time?
[Mark Glenn and Mark Dankof will soon be discussing Kitat Kohenut on The Ugly Truth. Stay tuned. . . .]
