Mark Dankof Responds to the ADL Hit Piece on Press TV Iran

Mark Dankof in Washington, D. C. in November of 2011

     The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL) has reared its head again in another attack on Press TV Iran and those who appear in that venue.  This published projectile out of New York appears as the “ADL Report:  Iranian Government’s Press TV Promotes Anti Semitism to Global Audience.”

     It must be fairly noted that this latest broadside represents an actual improvement in methods employed by the American domestic wing of the Israeli Mossad intelligence organization.  In this new case, at least the ADL has taken public responsibility for the demonization, innuendo, and ad hominem attacks they periodically launch on their opponents.

     Such is not always the case.  It is a matter of public record that Rabbi Ariel Tuchman, the Director of the Library and Research Center of the ADL in New York, and an Assistant Director of their Civil Rights Division, was deliberately concealing his identity from the public in a series of anonymous assaults being directed against critics of the Israel Lobby and the government of Israel on an Internet site called JHate.  That scam was detected and traced.  Other anonymous sites of this ilk have surfaced since.

     The ADL is obsessed with what it defines as Hate Speech.  The charge of Hate Speech comes into play any time the Zionist enterprise is criticized, or the ADL and its sister organizations in the Israeli Lobby are criticized or challenged.  This term and its employment are absolutely Orwellian in scope.  What the ADL is truly opposed to is Free Speech and the free exchange of ideas in the national and international public marketplaces of information and analysis.  (I understand that my current targeting by their New York headquarters had as much to do this time with my conversations with Fars News Agency of Iran, including my chats with Fars on Israel’s role in anti-Islamic Defamation; the connections of Israel and The Lobby to the MEK Delisting Campaign; and worst of all, Israel’s role in the events of 9-11.)

     Why is this so?  The reason is simple and obvious.  The ADL cannot stand on its own record which includes the Stalinist profiling dossiers their New York office develops on American political dissidents for subsequent distribution and use by their Regional Offices in the United States, the news media, and most ominously of all, both Federal and State governments.  In 2002, the San Francisco Superior Court awarded former Congressman Pete McCloskey a $150,000 court judgment against the ADL in a illegal domestic spying case.  In March of 2001, a U. S. District Judge upheld a $10.5 million judgment against the ADL in a defamation of character litigation that saw the ADL convicted in April of 2000 by a Federal Jury in Denver.

     This is the tip of the iceberg.  It is also but one side of the counterfeit coin.  The other side is the indefensible record of the Zionist State of Israel, an indefensible record the ADL is entrusted with favorably representing.  Philip Giraldi’s recent essay entitled, “Why I Dislike Israel,” is a brief summation of what many of us publicly observe who are guests on Press TV Iran.  Given Israel’s criminal record generally, and the specifics of its criminal operations directed against the United States, the following section of the Giraldi piece is especially ominous:

     “Even more outrageous, and a lot less reported in the media, were the comments made by Patrick Clawson, director of research for the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), an organization founded by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). WINEP is widely viewed as a major component of the Israel Lobby in Washington and is closely tied to the Israeli government, with which it communicates on a regular basis. Clawson heads WINEP’s Iran Security Initiative. At a briefing on Sept. 24 he said,I frankly think that crisis initiation is really tough, and it’s very hard for me to see how the United States … uh … president can get us to war with Iran.… The traditional way America gets to war is what would be best for U.S. interests.’

     “Note that Clawson states his conviction that initiating a crisis to get the U.S. involved in a war with Iran and thereby fooling the American people into thinking that it is the right thing to do is actually a ‘U.S. interest.’ He cites Pearl Harbor, Fort Sumter, the Lusitania, and the Gulf of Tonkin as models for how to get engaged. Which inevitably leads to Clawson’s solution:‘if the Iranians aren’t going to compromise it would be best if someone else started the war … Iranian submarines periodically go down. Some day one of them may not come up…. We are in the game of using covert means against the Iranians. We could get nastier at that.’ Clawson is clearly approving of Israel’s staging an incident that would lead to war, possibly even a false-flag operation carried out by Israel that would implicate the United States directly, or he is urging the White House to do the job itself.”

     The history of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) as an Israeli front organization, and the taped video of Patrick Clawson’s recommendation of black covert operations and false flag incidents to initiate war with Iran, may be accessed courtesy of Grant Smith.  This matrix is even more ominous when considered in tandem with Michael Collins Piper’s expose on Magal Security SystemsDo we really want an Israeli company controlling security to American nuclear weapons and sites?

     So what then, does one do if entrusted with the task of providing Positive Public Relations (PPR) for this criminal enterprise drenched in blood, deception, and terror all the way from the King David Hotel, Deir Yassin, and the Lavon Affair to the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, the Pollard and AIPAC spy cases, the Sabra and Shatila massacres, the murder of Rachel Corrie, and the Mavi Marmara incident?

     It’s easy.  You control.  You isolate.  You peripheralize. You intimidate.  You pay off.  You bluster.  You libel.  You label. You demonize. You perfect the art of guilt by association, half-truth, and the ad hominem attack launched from subterranean darkness.

     Up until recent years, it was easy for the ADL and their fellow travelers to do this.  The Tribe controlled the major news networks and the significant print dailies and weeklies.  It was the last word and the end of the story.  They had an absolute lock on the process.

     But that age is over.  Alternative news media, independent journalists, and international television outlets not beholden to Benjamin Netanyahu, Abe Foxman, Rupert Murdoch, Wolf Blitzer, AIPAC, and Sheldon Adelson’s Sands casino, are now a fixed constellation in a new universe.  The brightness and allure of the stars in this new constellation are emblazened across the night sky.  Millions of global citizens generally and North Americans specifically, are finding everything from The Ugly Truth to Press TV and Russia Today.

A Picture is Worth a 1000 Words: The Jewish Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.

     It is driving the ADL nuts.  Their desperation and hysteria will only go up and off the charts from here.

     Why?  Time and Truth are the weapons of the God of History in corroding the power and influence of the coercive and the duplicitous.  The latter’s invincibility has already been disproven.  The morally and spiritually indefensible cannot be defended foreverThere isn’t enough manpower and money in the world to accomplish it.

     It makes decent and powerless people everywhere smile, even as we watch.  Go ahead, Smile!  While the ADL Sweats!

     Switching gears, it was indeed a week to smile and have fun in San Antonio.

     I was reunited with my old hairstylist, Tamyra Sherman of M&S Cuts in Live Oak, Texas, this week.  She took great grooming care of my late Father in the last couple of years of his life from either the wheelchair or the barber’s chair,  and has cut my hair for about 6 years.  I had lost track of her when she left a managerial position at a Corporate Hairstylist Conglomerate in Live Oak’s Forum Shopping Center.  As it turns out she has added the role of business entrepreneur to her considerable tasks as a wife and mother.  I’m only the latest longtime client to join in the support of her effort.  If you’re in that area, I urge you to do so also.  It will bring you smiles, a great friend, and good grooming on an ongoing basis.

     I was also reunited with my .357 Colt Magnum revolver this week, courtesy of the repair work by my Gunsmith which completely restored the weapon’s double action capability.

     I discovered in a trip to the gun range south of San Antonio with my Gunsmith and another close friend, that I’d gotten rusty in my accuracy with the weapon.  In recent years, I’d gotten so used to rapid fire with .45 Colt ACP, the Walther PPK in .380 Auto, and the AR-15 rifle, that my ability to shoot from the hip rapid-fire with a .357 Magnum revolver had declined where accuracy was concerned.  The bad news is that my shots were pulling far to the left.

     The good news is that the problem was eminently correctible.  Altering the position of my front foot in the step taken toward the target; flexing the knees a bit more; leaning more forward; and most importantly, using more of the first section of my index finger inside the trigger guard, brought back some of the old magic.  In two more sessions of 50 shots apiece, I should be acquiring the center diamond of the target once more in rapid fire at 30 feet.

     My thanks go out to my Gunsmith and to my Organist at Immanuel Lutheran Church, who came to my testing session with his own 9 millimeter Ruger.  We had a blast!  And many smiles in some good clean escapist fun in the Alamo City.

     Message:  We all need to get away from the grimness of this world and the problems of our lives periodically, and have some fun.  And Smile!

JHate: Yes, Hate, but Also Cowardice

 

 
 
 
 
 

Mark Dankof in San Antonio. Summer 2010.

 

 

“You must be on your guard.  You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues.  On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them.  And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.  Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say.  Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.” 

Jesus Christ in the Olivet Discourse, The Gospel of Mark, Chapter 13, Verses 9-11. 

 

     There is now a new site on Word Press, entitled JHate

     The site is aptly named.  It is surely about Hate.

     But the site’s correct description of itself is incomplete.  It is also about  Cowardice.

     Hate and Cowardice have capital letters in this case, for justifiable reasons.

     Browsers need to know that the individual (s) behind this site post anonymously.  They also refuse to post fair and thoughtful comments by those who have been subjected to libelous characterizations and ad hominem attacks.  The most recent victims have been Press TV of Iran, Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal State Fullerton University, and yours truly.  We have all been tagged with the false, predictable, and shopworn charge of “anti-Semitism.”

     Three succinct observations are in order.  The first comes courtesy of Mark Weber of the Institute of Historical Review.  He aptly notes in a letter to Dr. Foote that, “Being attacked by an outfit like this is a badge of honor. You’re on the right side of history and humanity.”

     The second observation was made to me by Dr. Foote himself, regarding these odious and demonic attacks.  The good professor notes that the character of these baseless assaults clearly indicates that the presence of mainstream American conservative critics of Zionism and Israel on Press TV is having a positive effect for truth around the world generally, and in the United States specifically.  The Hasbara Project crowd at Mossad headquarters predictably doesn’t like it.  The folks who brought you the Sabra and Shatila massacres, the utilization of white phosphorus and depleted uranium shells against civilian populations in the Middle East, the murder of unarmed human rights activists on the Mavi Marmara Freedom Flotilla, and recent terror bombings in Iranian Azerbaijan and Sistan-Balochistan provinces, are now blind siding the critics of these policies on the World Wide Net.

     The third observation is my own.  JHate didn’t publish my letter of response to them.  I would like decent people around the world, including international viewers of Press TV, to see it.  The complete text is as follows:

Mark Dankof to JHate

     It’s nice to know that I am considered to be in the same company as Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote, whose education, professional and military credentials, and basic human decency are beyond dispute. 
 
     As for the predictable charge of “anti-Semitism,” the methodology of demonizing honest critics of Israel’s criminal policies isn’t going to wash this time.  Too many people around the world, thanks to Internet technology, are now aware of Deir Yassin; the bombing of the King David Hotel by Mr. Begin and Company; the Lavon Affair; Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty in June of 1967; and the myriad number of Israeli espionage operations against the United States, including the theft of American nuclear raw materials at Pennsylvania’s NUMEC plant, the PROMIS affair, and the Jonathan Pollard and AIPAC spy scandals. 
 
     As Americans find out what our $10 billion a year “ally” has been up to since 1947, new dawning awareness of the implications of Israel’s policies in Palestine and Gaza is also beginning to invade the American consciousness.  Tolerance of atrocities like the Rachel Corrie murder and the slaughter of innocents on the Mavi Marmara Freedom Flotilla will end.  And as American manpower and money continue to go down the proverbial drain, courtesy of the United States’ assumption of its role as both the chief enforcer of Zionist policies in the Middle East and the developing New World Order globally, patience will also evaporate with the role of the Israeli Lobby in the American domestic political scene. 
 
     As Daniel said to Belshazzar of Babylon, “. . . God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end (Daniel 5: 26).”  The perverse and racist ideology of modern Zionism will also come to an end in the Biblical God’s good time.
 
     What may we predict of Israel’s actions as its moral bankruptcy and political unsustainability become progressively more obvious? 
 
     This is an absolute cinch:  Hasbara Project attacks against decent writers, thinkers, and human rights activists on the Internet, coupled with a false flag incident designed to provoke a war with Iran that is totally unjustified, preventable, and in the interest of no one, save the psychotics in the Netanyahu regime.
 
     And Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp will lead the corporate media consortium charge to sell this tragic travesty to the American public.  By way of comparison, I will join Paul Sheldon Foote, Paul Craig Roberts, and George Galloway in appearing on Press TV anytime.
 
     Let’s face it.  You folks are running scared.
 
     I conclude in reiteration:  “. . . God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end. (Daniel 5: 26)”

In Christ Jesus,
