Kitat Kohenut and the Israeli Police State in Amerikka

 

Mark Dankof in San Antonio. Summer 2010.

     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.”

What will be the next move of the Masters of the False Flag Operation? "By Way of Deception, Thou Shalt do War."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

    

     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.  . . .]

 

 

    

Tom Tancredo’s Marriage to the MEK: Posterboy for Israel’s Infiltration of the American Right

with 4 comments

Mark Dankof: The MEK/MKO/PMOI terror organization. Does it have the fingerprints of the CIA, Mossad, and MI6?

     The Washington Post and the international media inform us this week that it’s official:  Former Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Colorado) is going to seek that state’s gubernatorial nomination as the candidate of the Constitution Party.  For the record, I was the Constitution Party’s nominee in the U. S. Senate race in Delaware in 2000, opposing now-Senator Thomas Carper and the late William Roth.

    TPM informs us that the Constitution Party is a paleo-conservative party in the mold of Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul, rejecting “neoconservatism and American internationalism as threats to the country’s independence and sovereignty.”

     But, as usual, the media (and many of the naive faithful in the Constitution Party) misses the real story:  Tom Tancredo is a tool of the Israeli Lobby, a Neo-conservative, and a warmonger for the Zionist State on the subject of launching a preemptive war against Iran.

     This is not the first time that the national Constitution Party has promoted an Israeli asset at the national level in recent years.  In 2008, Constitution Party founder Howard Phillips, chairman of Washington’s Conservative Caucus, was promoting Dr. Jerome Corsi of Harvard University as a prospective Presidential candidate for the fledgling conservative 3rd-Party-in-the-Electoral-Wilderness.

     It takes less than 5 minutes on the Net to establish Corsi’s credentials as a Neo-conservative, Zionist asset of influence on the American Right.  An inspection of Corsi’s written archives for World Net Daily, the brainchild of Netanyahu’s buddy-in-residence, Joseph Farah, tells all that is needed to know about the good Harvard doctor.   His book, Atomic Iran, might as well been authored by the agitation-propaganda assets for the Israeli intelligence establishment that Philip Giraldi informs us are using Rupert Murdoch’s media chain to deliberately disseminate false stories about what is transpiring with Iran’s nuclear program.  As an excellent summation of Atomic Iran, Payvand’s Iran News carries a review of Corsi’s tome that reveals the extent of its connections to America’s Mossad-linked Neo-Conservatives.

     But Corsi made one mistake in 2008.  He appeared on my broadcast, “Mark Dankof’s America,” for the Republic Broadcasting Network.  At that time, he shared with my listeners his ongoing travels to Israel, for consultations with his “advisors in the Israeli Knesset.”  It was shortly after that revelation that he withdrew his name from the Constitution Party Presidential sweepstakes. It would be the end of his brief foray into electoral politics, but not the end of the bigger story.

     The new posterboy for Israeli infiltration of American Paleo-conservative parties and media outlets would appear to be Tom Tancredo.  An examination of Tancredo’s published views in an interview with Right Wing News reveals what the London Financial Times depicted by photograph yesterday, in covering the ex-Congressman’s run for the Colorado governor’s mansion.  He is working with the Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MKO)/National Council of Resistance in Iran (NCRI), the Communist-cultic terror organization, in assisting American Neo-conservatives and Israel in facilitating “regime change” in Iran.

Hey, Mr. Tancredo: Is that the Hammer-and-Sickle in the MEK Logo?

     My recent work on the MKO, and my coverage of the Raymond/Constance Tanter divorce case, should tell every American Paleo-conservative in either the Constitution or Republican Party about that organization—and who it is that Tom Tancredo is working for.  It isn’t AmericaIt’s Israel and the Jewish Lobby.

    Right Web joins Right Wing News in chronicling the Tancredo world view as it pertains to both the MEK, the Neo-Conservative “clash of civilizations” ideology, and support for America’s alleged War on Terror.  Here is a sample:

     “A cultural warrior on the international front, Tancredo is an enthusiastic supporter of the Bush administration’s war on terror, including the war in Iraq. Tancredo, who is a consistent supporter of the Pentagon and U.S. defense industries, has become a leading spokesperson in the House for an Iran regime change strategy in which the People’s Freedom Fighters (MEK) would be the vanguard organization supported by the United States.

     “Describing himself as a ‘devotee’ of Samuel Huntington and the thesis of his Clash of Civilizations treatise, Tancredo, like many on the right-from social conservatives to neoconservatives-bases his restrictionism less on economic reasons than on cultural and racial ones. ‘The threat to the United States comes from two things: the act of immigration combined with the cult of multiculturalism,’ argues Tancredo. ‘We will never be able to win in the clash of civilizations if we don’t know who we are. If Western civilization succumbs to the siren song of multiculturalism, I believe we are finished.’

     “Concerning the war on terrorism, Tancredo stated: ‘I believe that what we are fighting here is not just a small group of people who have hijacked a religion, but it is a civilization bent on destroying ours. Radical Islam has been the foe of Christiandom for centuries. The most serious foe of Christiandom. The battle ebbs and flows, peaks and becomes less intense, but it has been going on for centuries. We have never really been bothered by it, because the world was a place in which you could not really attack the United States physically. There were oceans separating us and if you did come, what were you going to come with? A gun, a rock, an arrow? But today it has all changed; it has taken on a different dimension.’

     “‘This combination, massive immigration and radical multiculturalism,’ warned Tancredo, ‘is a prescription for our own demise.’

     “Violent Regime Change in Iran by Freedom Fighters Tancredo advocates U.S. support for the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), a cult-like group that is cultivating a broad base of support among Iranian expatriates around the world. Mujahedin e-Khalq means ‘people’s freedom fighters.’ MEK affiliates are the Iraq-based National Liberation Army of Iran and the National Council of Resistance in Iran. MEK calls itself the People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI). The public face of the MEK is Maryam Rajavi, who has been designated by the MEK as the president-elect of Iran’s government in exile.

     “Although identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department and accused of a pattern of human rights abuses, Tancredo says ‘We should be aiding them, instead of restricting their activities. We can use the MEK, they are in fact warriors. Where we need to use that kind of force, we can use them.’

     “Together with Rep. Bob Filner (D-CA), Tancredo in 2005 formed the Iran Human Rights and Democracy Caucus.

     “On April 6, 2005 the caucus convened a briefing on Capitol Hill organized by the Iran Policy Committee, the most prominent policy institute dedicated to advancing a U.S. government-supported regime change strategy that relies on the MEK as the main instrument of a violent revolution. At that briefing, Tancredo called for the Bush administration to remove MEK from the list of terrorist organizations. According to Tancredo, MEK was designated not because it was involved in terrorist activities, but because the Clinton administration sought to curry favor with the Iranian regime.

     “Tancredo describes Maryam Rejavi as ‘very charismatic, she believes in women’s rights, she believes in democracy in Iran . I do support their efforts. I understand that the United States characterizes them as a terrorist organization, but what you have to understand is that they were identified as such only after the Clinton administration agreed to mollify the regime in Iran. They wanted to reach some kind of detente with Iran, with the mullahs. The mullahs had only one demand, and that was that we put the Mujahedin-e Khalq on the terrorist list and so it was done for political reasons, not because they posed any threat to the United States.’

     “On May 10, 2005 Tancredo organized another Capitol Hill briefing through the Iran Human Rights and Democracy Caucus that featured a variety of witnesses who spoke favorably of the MEK, including at least two U.S. military officials who had worked with the MEK in Iraq. On May 18, 2005 Tancredo took his support of MEK to the House floor when he asked that excerpts of the briefing be included in the congressional record. In his statement, Tancredo said that 65 political groups in Iraq had organized a petition signed by 2.8 million Iraqis that criticized Iran-sponsored ‘Islamic fundamentalism’s stealthy domination’ of Iraq and strongly supported the People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran. Tancredo called the organization the ‘main Iranian opposition group.’ Describing the petition, Tancredo said its supporters demanded that ‘the PMOI should be recognized in Iraq as a “legitimate political movement”’-which is also one of the demands of the Iran Policy Committee.

     “Tancredo and Filner, the co-chairs of the Iran caucus, offered their support to a pro-MEK rally in Washington on January 19, 2006. In a letter to the rally organizers, the Council for Democratic Change in Iran, the co-chairs of the House caucus, said, ‘We believe a possible alternative to the current government can be achieved through supporting the people of Iran and the Iranian resistance . We extend our solidarity to you and to the Iranian people and their defiance against tyranny.’

     “The pro-MEK rally was endorsed by two U.S. Senators: Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), and by four individual congressional representatives: Christopher Shays (R-CT), Ed Towns (D-NY), Bob Filner (D-CA), and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX).

     “By publicly supporting the MEK and the Iran Policy Committee, Tancredo has positioned himself with the most radical wing in the intensifying debate about how the U.S. government should pursue an Iran ‘regime change’ strategy. All sides that favor such a strategy agree that the U.S. government should be working more closely with Iranian dissidents both inside and outside Iran.

     “Tancredo continues to be an enthusiastic supporter of the U.S. war in Iraq. In a section on his official website on Iraq, Tancredo says: ‘The United States did not invade Iraq to conquer it, but rather to set it free. The United States does not stand to gain territory, oil, or any other spoils of war. We all should be proud of that sacrifice.’

     “Concerning the war on terrorism, Tancredo states: ‘Ultimately, I believe that the leadership of President Bush and the determination of the American people will result in the needed investments in technology, people, and weapons systems to combat, deter, and respond to future acts of brutality and terror by our enemies.'”

Alfred E. Newman and Tom Tancredo: Which one is "Mad" Magazine's Poster Boy?

     So much for a political party that rejects “neoconservatism and  American interventionism” and nominates Tom Tancredo.  You can consign the Constitution Party to the ashheap of history, along with an Israeli-infiltrated Tea Party movement.  As I pointed out in my past essay, “Controlled Opposition:  The Tea Party Turds and the House of Rothschild’s Coming War with Iran,” the ongoing demonization of Iran and ad hominem attacks on Islam, are always accompanied by a complete ignorance of the history of the relationship between the Jewish Lobby and Israel on the one hand, and their malignant influence on America on the other.  When the Tea Party’s well-publicized Nashville conference featured Neo-Conservative after Neo-Conservative, leading up to the grand finale of Sarah Palin’s gracing of the stage, I suggested the following:

     “Try this one on for size.  What would have transpired in Nashville if someone with access to podium as a scheduled speaker had said something  on the order of the following?

     “‘Ladies and gentlemen, 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?  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?

     “‘Why are we in an alliance as American conservatives 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?

     ” ‘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, pray tell, are people here today in Nashville, talking about recovering American domestic liberty, 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, $13 trillion in national debt, and every globalist trade treaty that has destroyed American sovereignty and the manufacturing sector of our economy?   Is Bernard Madoff going to show up next year as a Tea Party keynote speaker?

     “‘And are Sarah Palin, Dick Armey, William Kristol, Mary Parker Lewis, Alan Keyes, Lou and Phillip Sheldon, Connie Hair, Judson Phillips, Mark Skoda, and Andrew Breitbart concerned that Israeli intelligence is promoting agitation-propaganda through the Rupert Murdoch News Corp chain designed to begin a Third World War?

     “‘Frankly, ladies and gentlemen, there is only one word to describe these activities on the part of those who claim to speak for America, its Constitution, and its people, but who have been bought off by what I have just described.  That word is treason.’

     ” Nashville clearly would have exploded.  It should have.  And the longer America First patriots delay the exposure of the Trojan Horse within the gates that should have transpired in Tennessee, the greater likelihood of the destruction of the Republic at the hands of the House of Rothschild, and the envelopment of the planet in the flames of a Third World War, courtesy of the Neo-Conservative dream of a ‘Clash of Civilizations.’

     To the list of agents of the House of Rothschild, you may add the name of Tom Tancredo.

     And for the real history of the Mujahideen-e-Khalq and its affiliates, real American conservatives and patriots are invited to listen to my past broadcast with Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote on the subject.  Dr. Foote is a Ron Paul Republican, ex-U. S. Army veteran in Vietnam, and past denizen of the American Embassy in Tehran decades ago.  He is presently a professor at Cal State Fullerton.  When accessing the interview on the Habilian Association web site in Iran, peruse the rest of the site, along with the web page of the Nejat Society.

     You’ll learn what Tom Tancredo isn’t telling you.  And who he’s working for.  And who continues to deceive you.

     And why they hate us.  It isn’t because of our “freedoms.”

     Mark Glenn is returning from sabbatical leave to resume his radio shows with me on The Ugly Truth.  We will be talking about the Israeli-sponsored infiltration of the American Right, and the MEK, in future shows.  Stay tuned real soon.

The Mujahedin-e-Khalq: The Peril of Paradox in American Middle East Policy

The Mujahedin-e-Khalq: The Peril of Paradox in American Middle East Policy

by Mark Dankof

One thing is abundantly clear about American policy in the Middle East–it is based on a series of paradoxical, internally contradictory goals and alliances which typically end in tragic results for friend and foe alike.

Nowhere is this conundrum clearer than in the present U. S. quandary over the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), or People’s Holy Warriors, as chronicled by Ed Blanche, Beirut correspondent for The Middle East, in that publication’s June 2009 issue.

As Blanche capably summarizes what is known of the MEK, the organization was formed in Iran in 1965 by leftist students, subsequently adopting a “bizarre ideology that embraced both Islam and Marxism.” The ideology soon became linked to urban revolutionary guerrilla violence. In the final years of Pahlavi Iran, the MEK conducted a series of attacks and assassinations on American military and diplomatic personnel, as it sought the overthrow of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi.

The MEK joined forces with Khomeini’s revolutionaries in this ultimately successful effort, only to be expelled by the IRI regime itself in Tehran once its usefulness had expired after the Shah’s departure. The MEK began to conduct guerrilla operations against the Mullahs as they had against the monarchy previously, with considerable success. But the Mullahs applied a level of retaliatory force the “Islamic-Marxists” could not endure. They fled to France, and later joined forces with Saddam Hussein against Iran in the 1980-1988 war between the Gulf rivals.

The shifting paradoxes would continue, as the MEK established a headquarters at Camp Ashraf in Iraq, largely under American and Israeli protection. The one-time adversaries of both Persian monarchy and its American military and intelligence allies, had now become a tool of the United States and the Europeans against the Islamic theocratic regime they helped to usher in 3 decades ago.

And the ultimate paradoxes are these: First, Mr. Bush’s Operation Iraqi Freedom has resulted in the installation of a central government in Baghdad largely sympathetic to the IRI regime in Tehran, and with identical animosity to the MEK’s presence within its borders. Second, while Ed Blanche notes that it “was the MEK that disclosed the existence of Iran’s nuclear program in August 2002, stunning the U. S. intelligence and military establishments,” he fails to note credible information provided by Barry O’Connell and IPS’s Gareth Porter that the MEK’s role in “disclosing the existence of Iran’s nuclear program,” has been to serve as a clandestine conduit of information on the subject supplied by the Israeli intelligence community. Hello, Mossad, meet your new allies in the “Islamic-Marxist” network worldwide.

There you have it. The Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), or People’s Holy Warriors, is an “Islamic-Marxist” terror organization, which assisted in implementing the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979; was subsequently involved in guerrilla warfare operations against the very Iranian Mullahs they helped to bring to power; fought on the side of Saddam Hussein for 8 years in the Iran-Iraq war between 1980-1988; and now, according to Barry O’Connell and Gareth Porter, is working with Jewish neo-conservatives and Israeli intelligence in planting false “intelligence” on Iran’s nuclear program with the American National Security State and Western news media, itching for a confrontation between Tehran and Tel Aviv—even as it now possesses an adversarial role with the very regime in Baghdad installed by Mr. Bush’s War. Confused?

You should be. The global international establishment can’t figure out what its position on the MEK is supposed to be, either. Hence, according to Blanche, Saudi Arabia’s General Intelligence Directorate is trying to find the organization a new place to live; the U. S. State Department continues to maintain a place for the MEK on its terrorism blacklist, as does the European Union; American and Jewish neo-conservatives in the defense and intelligence communities of the United States advocate an alliance with the MEK against Tehran; even as Britain’s Court of Appeal ruled in May of 2008 that the MEK “should not be deemed a terrorist organization.”

Oh, yes. One other thing. Even as Israeli intelligence and the Pentagon pursue an anti-Tehran alliance with the MEK, Tehran, according to Blanche, offered the United States in December of 2003 several senior Al Qaeda operatives in exchange for MEK commanders under U. S. control at Camp Ashraf. The U. S. could have had Saif Al Adel and Mahfouz Ould Walid (Abu Hafs the Mauritanian), even as it avenged the deaths of murdered American personnel from the days of Pahlavi Iran in the 1970s.

Why was there no deal?

Better ask the Mossad, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Kenneth R. Timmerman, and the Project for the New American Century crowd.

Isn’t paradox wonderful?
