The shooting of the Pope; the CIA and the Mafia.

http://www.chss.montclair.edu/english/furr/essays/popeshooting.html

Grover C Furr wrote about 'The Politics Behind the Shooting of the Pope' in Comment, Montclair State College, NJ, in 1983.

Pope John Paul II was shot on May 13, 1981 by a young Turk, Mehmet Ali Acga.

Agca was a member of the 'fascist' GREY WOLVES, the military wing of Turkey's National Action Party (NAP). The Grey Wolves are alleged to have links to the CIA.

Cedar Celebi, head of the NAP in West Germany, was arrested in West Germany on November 1, 1982, and charged with giving Acga money and weapons to kill the Pope.

Sometime prior to the shooting of the Pope, Acga confessed to the murder of a newspaper editor. Acga reportedly carried out that murder at the request of the NAP’s founder, Col. Arpaslan Turkes.

Acga was put on trial for the murder of the editor. Documents from Acga's trial revealed apparent NAP contacts with West German intelligence. West German intelligence was formed by the U.S. after World War II from ex-Nazis and members of Hitler’s intelligence corps. It has always worked closely with the CIA. The trial documents also show the NAP has been involved with Turkish ex-members of the Nazi SS battalions.

Newspapers and journalists with alleged CIA connections tried to blame Russia for the shooting of the Pope. Michael Ledeen in Il Giornale Nuovo blamed the Soviets. Robert Moss in the Economist Foreign Report blamed the Soviets.

Why might the CIA have turned against the Pope?

Pope John Paul II had tried to restrain the fascist leaders of Solidarnosc. The Church had urged non-violence and cooperation with the Polish government. The Pope had held talks with the PLO. The Pope had shown increased toleration for the activist clergy of Central America. The Pope had agreed to visit Nicaragua which had a Sandinista government. The Pope had created the first Soviet Cardinal acceptable to the Kremlin and resident within the USSR.

John Paul II seemed to have upset the neo-fascists in Europe and America.

Was the CIA behind the shooting of the Pope?

Allegedly, Turkey's National Action Party (NAP) and the Vatican 'support competing sides in the international heroin traffic'.

Reportedly, the NAP 'uses a route through Sofia, Bulgaria to supply the burgeoning European heroin market'.

They are, according to the Rome newspaper La Repubblica of March 1, 1982, in 'direct competition' with the Italian mafia, the major heroin suppliers to the U.S. through Latin America.

Michele Sindona, "God’s banker", owed his meteoric rise in the financial world to his personal friendship with Pope Paul VI. Three Vatican Cardinals volunteered to testify for Sindona at his New York trial in 1980.

According to Carlo Bordoni, Sindona’s co-defendant, Sindona "was one of the mafia’s bankers, the route through which organized crime money passes across the Atlantic."

Ex-New York Times reporter Richard Hammer revealed in The Vatican Connection (Holt, Rinehart, and Winston, 1982) how, in 1971, Pope Paul VI’s closest associate, Eugène Cardinal Tisserant, 'set up a $950 million phony securities fraud with mafia help; Cardinal Marcinkus, head of the Vatican Bank, was the bag-man.'

Vatican links to the mafia are commonly discussed in the Italian press.

Thus the Turkish fascist NAP could have had their own reasons for wanting to see the Pope out of action.

The Pope, the Vatican and the CIA

The book 'In God's Name' by David Yallop is about the alleged murder of Albino Luciani, Pope John Paul I, in 1978.

Why might John Paul I have been murdered?

According to Yallop this was partly because John Paul I was intending to excommunicate 100 top-ranking Vatican officials who were Freemasons.

Several of these Freemasons were allegedly co-conspirators in the Vatican Bank scandal, in which 2.4 billion US dollars were reportedly embezzled from the bank.

The masterminds of this bank crime were reportedly members of Italy's P2 masonic society.

Barbara Honnegar, author of 'October Surprise' believes that both Alexander Haig and Henry Kissinger were key members of P2.

P2 was reportedly a fascist movement with links to the mafia.

After John Paul I's death:

1) Karol Wojtlya, allegedly the CIA's candidate, was elected as John Paul II.

2) John Paul II reportedly "sat" on the banking scandal.

3) Ronald Reagan allegedly bailed out the Vatican Bank with $300 million of "discretionary CIA funds."

4) Church canon law was changed in 1982 so that membership in the Freemasons was no longer grounds for excommunication from the Church of Rome.

There was no autopsy performed on John Paul I.

Reportedly, many members of "P2", the secret Masonic society, carry with them a fatal dose of digitalis - on the advice of the society's founder, Licio Gelli.

In 1982, P2 member Roberto Calvi was found hanged under Blackfriars Bridge in London, shortly before 1 billion dollars was found to be missing from the Vatican-owned Banco Ambrosiano.

Some think the Mafia murdered him. Others think that Gelli, the Grand Master of P2, had him murdered. Others think that the secret society so highly thought of by John Paul II - Opus Dei, did it.

Many of the CIA are reportedly members of Opus Dei.

http://rigorousintuition.blogspot.com/2004/08/yellow-cake-and-black-shirts.html

From Barbara Honegger's 'October Surprise':

When the Italian police raided (P2 Lodge founder) Gelli's home in March 1981, it was Michael Ledeen who, at the instigation of Alexander Haig and Henry Kissinger, offered to buy the list of 953 P2 members in an apparent attempt to keep it from becoming public.

Henry Kissinger had reportedly sent Ledeen to Italy to try to squash an investigation into his and Haig's involvement in the founding of P2.

Some of Ledeen's own words, on a leadership trait he admires, from his book Universal Fascism:In order to achieve the most noble accomplishments, the leader may have to 'enter into evil.' This is the chilling insight that has made Machiavelli so feared, admired and challenging... we are rotten.... It’s true that we can achieve greatness if, and only if, we are properly led.

Michael Aquino, alleged child sex abuse and the United States military

http://www.meta-religion.com/Esoterism/Satanism/church_of_set.htm

"Michael Aquino joined the Church of Satan in 1969, while he was in the US Army as a psychological operations specialist.

"In 1975... Aquino and 28 fellow Church of Satan members left the group and founded their own church, the Temple of Set...

"In 1986... Charges of child molestation surfaced at the day-care center at Presidio Army Base, where Lt. Col. Aquino was assigned. Gary Hambright, a day-care worker, was charged with 12 counts of sodomy, oral copulation, and lewd conduct. Aquino... was identified by some of the children as possibly being another man who had participated in the molestations. However, no formal charges were ever brought against Aquino, and the case against Hambright was later dismissed."

Jeffrey Steinberg has written about Satanism and the U.S. Military:

On February 5, 1999, in the U.S. District Court in Lincoln, Nebraska, Paul Bonacci claimed that he had been ritualistically abused by Lawrence E King, as part of a nationwide pedophile ring linked to powerful political figures in Washington and to elements of the U.S. military and intelligence establishment.

On February 27, Judge Warren K. Urbom ordered King to pay $1 million in damages to Bonacci, in what Bonacci's attorney John DeCamp said was a clear signal that "the evidence presented was credible."

During the February 5 hearing, Noreen Gosch gave the court sworn testimony linking U.S. Army Lt. Col. Michael Aquino (ret.) to the nationwide pedophile ring. Her son, Johnny, then 12 years old, was kidnapped off the streets of West Des Moines, Iowa on September 5, 1982, while he was doing his early-morning newspaper deliveries.

Noreen Gosch said: "This ... was an offshoot of a government program. The MK-Ultra program was developed in the 1950s by the CIA... There was a man by the name of Michael Aquino. He was in the military. He had top Pentagon clearances. He was a pedophile... he was a close friend of Anton LaVey. The two of them were very active in ritualistic sexual abuse. And they deferred funding from this government program to use [in] this experimentation on children.

"Where they deliberately split off the personalities of these children into multiples, so that when they're questioned or put under oath or questioned under lie detector, that unless the operator knows how to question a multiple-personality disorder, they turn up with no evidence."

"They used these kids to sexually compromise politicians or anyone else they wish to have control of. This sounds so far out and so bizarre I had trouble accepting it in the beginning myself until I was presented with the data. We have the proof. In black and white."

Aquino, according to his official biography, circulated by the Temple, was a “Lieutenant Colonel, Military Intelligence, U.S. Army.”

"Paul Bonacci ... positively identified Aquino as an associate of King who was known to Bonacci and the rest of the children only as 'the Colonel.'

"King's former personal photographer, Rusty Nelson, has identified Aquino as the man to whom he saw King hand over a suitcase full of cash and bonds.

"Rusty Nelson, has also said that he was told by King that Aquino was part of the Contra guns and cocaine trafficking operation run by George Bush and another notorious Lt. Col. named Oliver North.

"Aquino has also been linked to Offutt Air Force Base, a Strategic Air Command post near Omaha that was implicated in the investigation by the Franklin Committee...

"Aquino was also claimed to have ordered the abduction of a Des Moines, Iowa paperboy...

"In July 1988... the San Jose Mercury News ran a lengthy exposé on the Presidio Child Development Center run by the U.S. Army in San Francisco. Allegations of abuse being perpetrated at the center first emerged in November 1986. Alarmed by accusations made by her child, a parent had sought a medical examination that confirmed that her three-year-old boy had in fact been anally raped...

"Within a year, at least sixty additional victims had been identified... Many of the children also spoke of having guns pointed at them and of being told that they and/or their parents and siblings would be killed if they told anyone what had been done to them...

"Five of the children had contracted chlamydia, a sexually transmitted disease; many others showed clear signs of anal and genital trauma consistent with violent penetration...

"One mother complained to the San Francisco Chronicle that the FBI never interviewed her or her son, even after doctors had confirmed the boy’s abuse...

"The American Journal of Orthopsychiatry noted in April 1992, the 'severity of the trauma for children at the Presidio was immediately manifest in clear cut symptoms. Before the abuse was exposed, parents had already noticed the following changes in their children: vaginal discharge, genital soreness, rashes, fear of the dark, sleep disturbances, nightmares, sexually provocative language, and sexually inappropriate behavior. In addition, the children were exhibiting other radical changes in behavior, including temper outbursts, sudden mood shifts, and poor impulse control. All these behavioral symptoms are to be expected in preschool children who have been molested...'

"One child positively identified Aquino and his wife, Lilith (known to the kids as 'Mikey' and 'Shamby'), and was also able to identify the Aquinos’ private home and to describe with considerable accuracy the distinctively satanic interior décor of the house. The young witness claimed to have been photographed at the Aquinos’ home. On August 14, 1987, a search warrant was served on the house. Confiscated in the raid were numerous videotapes, photographs, photo albums, photographic negatives, cassette tapes, and name and address books. Also observed was what appeared to be a soundproof room.

"Neither of the Aquinos was charged with any crimes...

"The U.S. Attorney in San Francisco handling the case was Joseph Russoniello. Russoniello would later be identified by reporter Gary Webb (of the San Jose Mercury News) as a player in the Contra cocaine smuggling operation led by Lt. Col. Oliver North and company, just as witnesses would later identify Lt. Col. Michael Aquino as an operative in the very same sordid affair.

"In May 1989, Aquino was again questioned in connection with child abuse investigations; this time, at least five children in three cities were making the accusations. The children had seen Aquino in newspaper and television coverage of the Presidio case and immediately recognized him as one of their abusers...

"Aquino was also identified by children in Santa Rosa and Fort Bragg, California. In the Fort Bragg case, 'allegations of ritual abuse erupted... in 1985 when several children at the Jubilation Day Care Center said they were sexually abused by a number of people at the day care center and at several locations away from the center, including at least two churches.' Aquino was identified as having been present at one of those churches...

"The Mercury News reported, 'by November, 1987 the Army had received allegations of child abuse at 15 of its day care centers and several elementary schools. There were also at least two cases in Air Force day care centers,' and another in a center run by the U.S. Navy.

"In addition, 'a special team of experts was sent to Panama [in June 1988] to help determine if as many as 10 children at a Department of Defense elementary school had been molested and possibly infected with AIDS.'

"Yet another case emerged in a U.S.-run facility in West Germany.

"These cases erupted at some of the country’s most esteemed military bases, including Fort Dix, Fort Leavenworth, Fort Jackson, and West Point. Many of those making the accusations were career military officers who had devoted their lives to unquestioned allegiance to the U.S. armed forces. Many would resign their posts in outraged protest...

"The Times Herald Record reported in June 1991, the 'incidents [at the West Point Child Development Center] unfolded against a backdrop of satanic acts, animal sacrifices and cult-like behavior among the abusers, whose activities extended beyond the U.S. Military Academy borders to Orange County and a military base in San Francisco, parents charged.'

"The case first broke in July 1984, when a three-year-old girl found herself in the emergency room of the West Point Hospital with a lacerated vagina. She told the examining physician that a teacher at the daycare center had hurt her...

The Mercury News reported, 'by the end of the year, 50 children had been interviewed by investigators. Children at West Point told stories that would become horrifyingly familiar. They said they had been ritually abused. They said they had had excrement smeared on their bodies and been forced to eat feces and drink urine. They said they were taken away from the day care center and photographed.'

"Despite abundant medical and psychological evidence and literally dozens of child witnesses, and despite '950 interviews by 60 FBI agents assigned to the investigation,' the investigation, 'led by former U.S. Attorney [and future mayor] Rudolph Giuliani' produced 'no federal grand jury indictments,' according to the Herald Record...

Christian evangelicals and the CIA

Http://www.rense.com/general20/unholy.htm

Rense has an article about CIA links to Christian evangelical leaders in the USA.

Nearly all the top Christian evangelicals in the USA apparently have connections with the Rev. Sun Myung Moon. The CIA allegedly has links to Moon. http://www.counterpunch.org/madsen01142003.html

Moon, the Moonies, and the Unification Church have been accused of being involved with mind control.

Moon apparently claims that Jesus failed and that Moon is the new messiah.

Jerry Falwell reportedly ‘admits that he accepted 2.5 million dollars from Moon in 1994’.
Falwell has spoken at many Moon meetings.

Falwell is not the only evangelical reported to have accepted money from Rev. Moon.

One 'Moon sponsored' organization is the Council for National Policy founded in 1981 by evangelist Tim LaHaye. ‘It is reported that he received $500,000 from a Mr. Bo Hi Pak, Moon’s number one man, and a former Korean CIA officer’.

"Many Evangelical, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Catholic, Mormon and other ecumenically-minded leaders are members of the Council for National Policy, the 500+ member organization which plans the strategy of the Religious Right in the United States."

Members of the CNP have included: Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, and Oliver North, formerly with the National Security Council.

Members have also reportedly included:

* Ron Godwin, Former Vice President of Falwells Moral Majority, Sr Vice President of the Moon owned Washington times

* Allan Gottleib, Board Member of Moons front group, the American Freedom Coalition. ‘In 1983 the Moon group CAUSA, founded by Bo Hi Pak, former Korean CIA and liaison to the American CIA, and Moons right hand man, granted Gottleib an all expense paid trip to Jamaica for a CAUSA conference.’

* J. Peter Grace, Council of Foreign Relations, Knights of Malta, ‘and worked with the CIA to remove classified info concerning former Nazi scientists so that they could immigrate into the U.S., supposedly so they could carry on their work (including mind control projects) in the USA.’

* Lt. General Daniel Graham (CNP Board of Governors) Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Deputy Director CIA.

* Max Hugel (CNP Member) Former special assistant CIA Deputy Director for Administration, and Deputy Director for Operations

One of the National Religious Broadcasters is Pat Robertson whose activities reportedly include: "support for the slaughter of thousands of Indians by a Guatemalan dictator; public praise for the reputed leader of Salvadoran death squads; collaboration with murky U.S. mercenary groups; and the provision of chaplains and funds to the contra army seeking to topple the government of Nicaragua...". Http://www.skepticfiles.org/weird/patr.htm

Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network organised Operation Blessing. This operation reportedly helped supply goods to the Contras. The head of Operation Blessing was Captain Robert Warren, who was also formerly associated with a CIA group called "Operation Phoenix." Allegedly this was an assassination group that operated in Vietnam. Also associated with this group was Oliver North.

The Washington Post has claimed that the former leader of Liberia, Charles Taylor, received at least $1 million for providing sanctuary to bin Laden agents in the weeks following the September 11, 2001 attacks Http://www.atheists.org/flash.line/faith49.htm

Pat Robertson had an agreement with Taylor's government to operate a mining business known as Freedom Gold Ltd. Taylor helped Robertson's ministry organize giant prayer rallies.

In Zaire, Robertson gained extensive land and mining concessions for his African Development Corporation. The CIA and Robertson seemed to be supporters of Zairian strong man Mobutu.

One Moon associated group is called the 'Council of 56 of the Religious Roundtable'. This group allegedly connects leading Moon associated evangelicals to the CIA.

Reportedly, Govt Connections to this group include:

Major General George J. Keegan, Jr., chief of the U.S. Air Defense Intelligence and member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, worked for the CIA from 1963-1966

General Daniel Graham (ret.) In 1973 Graham served as a deputy to CIA Director William Colby and from 1974-1976 he was the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency

Groups belonging to the Roundtable include: The Christian Broadcasting Network, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Moral Majority, Christian Voice, National Religious Broadcasters, National Association of Evangelicals, Gideon Bible, Wycliffe Bible Associates...

Billy Graham

In "The Deadly Deception", by Jim Shaw, an ex-33rd degree mason (Masons are believed by many to be the driving force behind the NWO), Shaw reportedly relates how Graham was present at his ceremony initiating him into the 33rd degree.


In the book, Thy Will Be Done, Gerard Colby and Charlotte Dennett explain the association between the CIA and Christian missionaries. http://www.finalcall.com/perspectives/sudan_cia05-15-2001.htm

Colby and Dennett detail the Wycliffe Bible Translator's alleged ties to the CIA the intelligence community.

The link between the CIA and missionary groups 'was quite often the US Agency for International Development (AID)'.

'President Nixon's director of AID, John Hannah, admitted publicly that AID had funded CIA operations in Laos, and subsequent revelations pointed to CIA-AID collaboration in Ecuador, Uruguay, Thailand and the Philippines.'

World Vision reportedly has links to the CIA. http://www.oilempire.us/reagan.html

World Vision "ran the refugee camp in Sabra-Shatilla where the fascist Phalange were allowed in to kill the Palestinians... They ran the Cuban and Thai refugee camps in the United States.

"Mark David Chapman, who eventually shot John Lennon, worked at the Thai refugee camps out in Arkansas that World Vision operated there. They ran these camps brutally, forcing people into political education against Castro, refusing to feed people, beating people... The chairman of the board for some period was John W. Hinkley Sr.. The son worked at Fort Chafey at the Thai refugee camps. There were pictures of him after the Reagan shooting running in his World Vision T-shirt around the edge of the camp...Scott was already doing the wheeling and dealing and was tight with Neil Bush..."

The Jonestown Massacre: allegedly “Jonestown” was part of a CIA mind-control program: the CIA infiltrated The People’s Temple, to carry out their experiments. CIA theorists claim that Jim Jones had many questionable associations with the CIA throughout the years he was establishing The People’s Temple. The Temple had a strong association with the World Vision organisation that many believe to be another CIA front. http://www.crimelibrary.com/notorious_murders/mass/jonestown/connections_5.html?sect=8

"Jim Jones had a very interesting past which was overlooked by the media: Jones was ... sent to Brazil where his house, transportation and groceries were provided to him by the U.S. Embassy, and he frequently traveled to Belo Horizonte, the CIA headquarters in Brazil.

"Jones had been contacted in Ukiah by 'Christian missionaries' from World Vision (World Vision is a CIA controlled front operation), an evangelical order which had performed espionage work for the CIA in Southeast Asia." http://www.subversiveelement.com/Firefromsky20.html

Twin Towers - controlled explosion

http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/forum.cgi?read=67173


Jim Marrs, author of Inside Job: Unmasking the 9/11 Conspiracies, believes that 9/11 was an "inside job."

His examines Jim Hoffman's research into the idea that explosives caused the collapse of the twin towers.

Marrs gives us several arguments which (1) disprove the official version of a fire-induced gravity collapse and (2) show that explosives in the towers' cores brought down the 47 central support columns.

The towers' cores were obliterated. Only explosives can explain the pulverization of concrete and the thrusting of girders hundreds of feet from the towers.

Videos and photographs show explosions occurring well below the level of the collapse.

The 'undamaged' parts of the towers failed to slow the collapses. This indicates that "nearly all resistance to the downward acceleration of the tops had been eliminated ahead of them," Hoffman says.

AFP reported an eyewitness to the collapse seeing "a number of brief light sources being emitted from inside the building between floors 10 and 15" accompanied by "a crackling sound" before the tower fell.

During the recent "Confronting the Evidence" conference held in New York City, a person who worked in the North Tower told AFP that prior to 9/11, elevator shafts were guarded by security guards while being "out-of-service" for "weeks and months."

"The xxxx people will obtain world dominion"

It would be good if Moslems intermarried with Jews, and if Catholics intermarried with Protestants, and if Ndebele intermarried with Shona.

It would be good if , within each country, the media and other important institutions were not dominated by one particular tribe.

It would be good if all of society adopted a belief system which encouraged compassion, moderation and humility.

In Zimbabwe, the Ndebele tribe fear that the Shona tribe, together with its its allies, will obtain total control of the country.

There was a time when it was feared that the Japanese would take over a large part of the world.

To some people in South East Asia, it may seem that it is Chinese billionaires who control the economies and the governments.

In Indonesia, ethnic Chinese make up less than 4 percent of the population but control around 70 percent of the major businesses. Twelve of the 15 wealthiest families are Chinese. Chinese oligarchs are influential in countries such as Thailand, the Philippines and Malaysia.

Some people worry about a Moslem takeover of the world.

"As long as Westerners are spurred to defend their country only by terrorist murder, they will remain vulnerable to cultural subversion. The Moslems would simply have to learn to avoid outright jihadist threats and violence, which would put the Dutch back to sleep again until the Moslems' numbers had grown to the point where the Dutch wouldn't be able to resist a Moslem takeover of the Netherlands even if they wanted to." - Lawrence Auster http://www.amnation.com/vfr/archives/002779.html

Some Jews worry about Christians having too much power in the world.

"I believe that the active Jews of today have a tendency to think that the Christians have organized and set up and run the world of injustice, unfairness, cruelty, misery.

"I am not taking any part in this, but I have heard it expressed, and I believe they feel it that way. Jews have lived for the past 2000 years and developed in a Christian World. They are apart of that Christian World even when they suffer from it or be in opposition with it, and they cannot dissociate themselves from this Christian World and from what it has done.

"And I thinkthat the Jews are bumptious enough to think that perhaps some form of Jewish solution to the problems of the world could befound which would be better, which would be an improvement. It is up to them to find a Jewish answer to the problems of theworld, the problems of today." -Baron Guy de Rothschild, NBC TV, August 18, 1974. http://www.iahushua.com/JQ/436quote2.html

"The Jewish people as a whole will be its ownMessiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy, and by the establishment of a world republic in whichthe Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship.In this new world order the Children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments ofthe different peoples forming the world republic will fallwithout difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then bepossible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property, andeverywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus willthe promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said thatwhen the Messianic time is come the Jews will have all theproperty of the whole world in their hands."

Some people in Britain worry about an alleged 'Jewish state within a state '.

According to radioislam.org "TONY BLAIR ... is hugely Jewish financed.

"£500,000 has just been given to him by leading Jewish business men including Sir Trevor Chinn, Britain's biggest motor dealer (Lex Service); Alex Bernstein, former Granada TV chairman; Bob Gavron, publishing millionaire who himself recently gave £500,000 to the party; Sir Emmanuel Kaye, chairman of Lansing Bagnall; and Michael Levy, head of N & G Records. Michael Levy's Blind Trust thus helped Tony Blair raise £22 million for his election campaign.

"Other major benefactors to the Labour Party ... are the Jews Maurice Hatter, David Sainsbury and Robert Earl, each of whom contributed at least one million pounds...

"Examples of Jewish Home Secretaries are Jack Straw, Michael Howard (real name Michael Hecht) and Leon Brittan (real name Leon Brittanisky)...

"Almost all of these influential Jews are Zionists: they believe in a sovereign Israeli state which will ultimately be the centre of a world government. It is a combination of Israeli nationalism and their conviction that they are "God's Chosen People".....

"The Race Relations Act of 1965 was introduced to parliament by the Russian Jew Frank Soskice, purported Labour Attorney General...

"Throughout the 1970s and 1980s Neville Nagler, a synagogue official, was the head of the Home Office Department responsible for race relations matters...

"The so-called Public Order Act of 1986 was placed before parliament by the... Conservative Home Secretary, a Jewish immigrant from Lithuania, Leon Brittanisky, also known as Leon Brittan, assisted by his cousin, another Lithuanian Jew, Malcolm Rivkind, also know as Malcolm Rifkind...

" Eldred Tabachnik, president of the Jewish Board of Deputies... is a close friend of Tony Blair, leader of the Labour Party...

"Jack Straw of Jewish ancestry succeeded Tory Home Secretary, Michael Howard, (identified by the Independent on Sunday, 14 April, 1996, as born Michael Hecht, son of a Jewish refugee from Romania); Tabachnik has already succeeded in getting the Labour Party to agree to end freedom of speech on the subject of the depicted Jewish holocaust by subjecting denial of it to a two-year jail sentence..."

Rainier of Monaco

http://www.goodmoney.com/monaco.htm

Betty Lowry, travel writer: "Monaco has no crime, no poverty, no unemployment, no pollution and no income tax."

http://news.independent.co.uk/europe/story.jsp?story=624025

His Most Serene Highness Prince Rainier III, Rainier Louis Henri Maxence Bertrand Grimaldi, sovereign prince of Monaco and Duc de Valentinois, changed Monaco from a moderately wealthy resort into a booming tax haven.

Monaco is the second smallest country in the world. It has 6,000 Monégasques and 26,000 resident foreigners.

The prince of Monaco acts as monarch and mayor.

Monaco has many famous residents: racing divers, tennis players, Ringo Starr, Shirley Bassey, alleged Russian mafia....

According to a writer in the Independent: "If you are a rich resident, almost anything goes. For everyone else, there is an atmosphere of conformist authoritarianism."

Rainier III married Grace Kelly in 1956.

Monaco is a tax haven. There are rumours of money laundering.

Ranier's son, Prince Albert, has never married.

Monaco's constitution has been changed to allow for Prince Albert to be succeeded by his sisters.

"France controls almost every aspect of government in the principality."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Kelly

"Since 1882, a childless prince of Monaco has been able to adopt an unrelated heir, thereby ensuring Monaco's survival as a principality. Prince Rainier's paternal grandfather, Prince Louis II of Monaco had done just that in 1919 when he adopted his illegitimate daughter Charlotte Louvet, who would become Rainier's mother, and made her his heir Princess Charlotte of Monaco."

'High Tide: News From a Warming World', by Mark Lynas (Harper Perennial)

Guardian review by Nicholas Lezard:


"Raise the temperature of the Earth by six degrees Celsius - which is currently at the upper range of predictions for the projected rise in temperature - and you trigger the release of an enormous amount of methane held in the oceans, leading to a runaway greenhouse effect. This 'methane burp' was what, apparently, caused the end-Permian mass extinction of 251 million years ago, in which 95% of the world's species were wiped out."

Italian war correspondent Giuliana Sgrena

http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=05/03/25/1516242

http://rigorousintuition.blogspot.com/2005/03/naomi-klein-sgrenas-car-shot-from.html

Italian war correspondent Giuliana Sgrena.

Naomi Klein tells Democracy Now : One of the things that we keep hearing is that she was fired on on the road to the airport, which is a notoriously dangerous road. In fact, it's often described as the most dangerous road in the world. So this is treated as a fairly common and understandable incident that there would be a shooting like this on that road. And I was on that road myself, and it is a really treacherous place with explosions going off all the time and a lot of checkpoints. What Giuliana told me that I had not realized before is that she wasn't on that road at all. She was on a completely different road that I actually didn't know existed. It's a secured road that you can only enter through the Green Zone and is reserved exclusively for ambassadors and top military officials. So, when Calipari, the Italian security intelligence officer, released her from captivity, they drove directly to the Green Zone, went through the elaborate checkpoint process which everyone must go through to enter the Green Zone, which involves checking in obviously with U.S. forces, and then they drove onto this secured road.

And the other thing that Giuliana told me that she's quite frustrated about is the description of the vehicle that fired on her as being part of a checkpoint. She says it wasn't a checkpoint at all. It was simply a tank that was parked on the side of the road that opened fire on them. There was no process of trying to stop the car, she said, or any signals. From her perspective, they were just -- it was just opening fire by a tank.

The other thing she told me that was surprising to me was that they were fired on from behind. Because I think part of what we're hearing is that the U.S. soldiers opened fire on their car, because they didn't know who they were, and they were afraid. It was self-defense, they were afraid. The fear, of course, is that their car might blow up or that they might come under attack themselves. And what Giuliana Sgrena really stressed with me was that she -- the bullet that injured her so badly and that killed Calipari, came from behind, entered the back seat of the car. And the only person who was not severely injured in the car was the driver, and she said that this is because the shots weren't coming from the front or even from the side. They were coming from behind, i.e. they were driving away. So, the idea that this was an act of self-defense, I think becomes much more questionable. And that detail may explain why there's some reticence to give up the vehicle for inspection. Because if indeed the majority of the gunfire is coming from behind, then clearly, they were firing from -- they were firing at a car that was driving away from them.

General Motors

http://news.ft.com/cms/s/9171c8a8-9a6b-11d9-a094-00000e2511c8.html

GE Capital, a part of General Electric, has withdrawn a $2bn loan facility for General Motors and its suppliers days after credit rating agencies warned that the carmaker could be downgraded to junk bond status.

GM said it expected a $2bn operating cash outflow this year.

Christian gangs and the military and terror in Indonesia

The Coker Gang is a group of gangsters who are of the Christian faith.

The surrender to the Indonesian police of Berty Loupatty, the leader of the Christian Coker gang, has led to revelations about the alleged role of Kopassus, the army's special forces, in the terror in Indonesia. http://www.infid.be/kopassus_maluku.html

Berty Loupatty claims that most of the terror in Maluku has been stage-managed by the military.

Tempo Magazine gained access to police reports, revealing that Coker was involved in at least 13 incidents, 9 of which included members of Kopassus. [Tempo No. 46, 19 January 2003].

Christian Rahayaan, a lawyer for Coker, told the press:

'During questioning, members of the Coker gang said Kopassus soldiers gave them directives, weapons and bombs to carry out every attack (in 2002). It's clear that the unrest in Maluku is the work of provocateurs. They use the pretext to create the impression that without the military, Maluku won't be safe'. [AFP, 8 January 2003].

"According to police reports Coker was involved in the destruction of a public transport terminal on 27 August 2001, killing 2 persons and wounding 16. A month later the Christian militia group placed a bomb in a minibus, killing one person.

"On 12 November 2001, supported by a Kopassus member called Ridwan, Coker members planted a bomb in an electronics shop killing 3 persons.

"Just before Christmas Day 2001 they exploded a bomb on a ferry carrying hundreds of passengers, heading towards the Galala harbour in Ambon. The ferry sank, 4 people were killed and scores were wounded. The Kopassus member involved was known as Dio.

"Together with Kopassus troops, Coker launched attacks on the villages of Portho and Haria on 10 April and 8 May 2002, with the intention of provoking the villagers to fight each other.

"The most vicious combined operation of Coker and Kopassus was the attack on the village of Soya... 22 houses were destroyed by fire, as well as the historic church of Soya built during Portuguese times and 12 people were killed. The Soya bloodbath created new tensions between Muslim and Christian communities. It is now clear that the attack was not the work of Muslim warriors as was thought at the time but an attack by a Christian militia gang together with Kopassus units."

Reportedly, Suharto's father was a minor immigration official and his mother a peasant. 'Their separation soon after his birth led to speculation that it was a marriage of convenience designed to hide Mr Suharto's real parentage'. There has been speculation that Suharto may have Chinese blood in him. Suharto's wife was born a Roman Catholic.

Christian gangsters and the military and terror in Indonesia (2)

http://archives.econ.utah.edu/archives/aut-op-sy/2000m02/msg00158.htm
http://www.asiapac.org.fj/cafepacific/resources/aspac/maluku.html
http://www.infid.be/kopassus_maluku.html


The rich elite sometimes use terror in order to hold onto their wealth and power. In Indonesia it is sometimes Christian gangsters, allied to members of the Christian elite, who carry out the violence.

Who are the Indonesian elite? Chinese-Indonesian entrepreneurs, many of them Christians, own two-thirds of the country's 300 biggest companies. Indonesia's generals, some of them Christian, are reported to be immensely wealthy. The Suharto family is reportedly allied to certain Chinese-Indonesian entrepreneurs and certain generals.

It now appears that Christian gangsters and sections of the military have been behind much of the terror in the Spice islands/Maluku/Ambon and elsewhere. Christians have reportedly been responsible for attacking churches.

~~~~~~~

'In February 2000 a bloodbath occurred in Tobelo and Galela, in North Maluku. It is estimated that 1,500 Muslims were butchered within a short space of time, which was possibly the highest death toll in a religious conflict in the history ofIndonesia'.
http://www.infid.be/kopassus_maluku.html

~~~~~~~~

George Aditjondro has written that the terror in parts of Indonesia 'has been triggered and fed by a number of provocateurs paid by the Suharto family and several cronies, according to monitoring by a sociologist and two human rights organizations, KONTRAS and Komnas HAM'

Komnas HAM discovered fake documents in Ambon (in the Maluku or Spice Islands) inciting the population to war (Sydney Morning Herald, 15 January 2000).

Alleged provocateurs from Maluku include Colonel Dicky Wattimena, former member of the Presidential Security Corps, and Yorris Raweyai, deputy chair of the Pancasila Youth, close to Bambang Trihatmodjo, the second son of former President Suharto(Jakarta Post, 18 January 2000; Sydney Morning Herlad, 19 January 2000).

Yorris Raweyai is reported to have been involved in trying to incite ethnic conflict in several parts of Indonesia.

In Ambon there are both Christian and Moslem gangs. These gangs have 'bosses' in Jakarta. The 'bosses' have tried to gain thesupport of Suharto's children.

The Christian gang is called Cowok Keristen (Christian Boys), shortened to Coker, and uses the Maranatha Protestant church as its headquarters. 'In Jakarta, they are connected to two Moluccan Christian youths, Milton Matuanakota and Ongky Pieters. This gang of Moluccan Christian youths dominate the shopping centre, parking area and gambling dens in West Jakarta.'

Communal clashes in Ketapang in Jakarta, November l998, involved Christian gangsters from Ambon. There were rumours that hundreds of Christian Ambonese security guards for a major gambling casino had destroyed a local mosque. The Ketapang clash led to a wave of church burnings . Indonesian human rights investigators found evidence that truckloads of youths, some of them paid, had been trucked in to take part in the violence. Of the thirteen killed, several were Ambonese. http://www.hrw.org/reports/1999/ambon/amron-02.htm

The Christian gangs are part of the Jakarta mafia, operating as security guards for illegal gambling dens, night clubs and brothels. From the start, the godfathers of the gangs were military officers. http://www.infid.be/kopassus_maluku.html

In Jakarta, rivals of the Milton and Ongky group include Ongen Sangaji, a Pancasila Youth activist and coordinator of a MoluccanMuslim university student organization. Many members of this group were recruited into the PAM Swakarsa (civilian security troops) used by General Wiranto to keep protesting students away from parliament in November l998.

Ongen reportedly has close ties to Suharto son Bambang Trihatmodjo. Milton is said tobe closer to Suharto daughter Siti Hardiyanti Rukmana (van Klinken, n.d.; HRW l999:8).

Thamrin Amal Tomagola, a professor at the University of Indonesia's Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, suspects that in Ambon the network of provocators can be traced back to people connected to former Armed Forces Commander General Wiranto (Sydney Morning Herald, 19 January 2000).

Allegedly the terror in Maluku may be being funded by the Suharto family and by two Suharto cronies with business interests in North Maluku, Eka Cipta Widjaja and PrajogoPangestu (Jakarta Post, 18 January 2000).

Allegedly Suharto and his generals may also have received funds from another entrepreneur with big business in Maluku, Tommy Winata, who is reportedly very close to Yorris Raweyai (Tempo, 31 May-6June 1999: 39-50).

U.S. unemployment rate is 23%; 70% in parts of the U.K.

http://www.exilemm.com/e-sub-realunemployment.shtml

The real unemployment rate is 23%

"The federal government claims the unemployment rate for 2004 was 5.5% But the government’s 'unemployment rate' statistic is a propaganda device. It does not count as 'unemployed' people who are 'not in the labor force.' According to economist Richard DuBoff.

Ann McKechin MP on Unemployment in Glasgow, Scotland:

Cabinet ministers and spies and sex

http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,2-2002021585,00.html

The Times referred to MI5 Files :

"Several of the present Cabinet, including Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary, can now ask to see the files kept on them in their younger, radical days. Peter Hain ... was kept under close surveillance during his time as an anti-apartheid protester in the early 1970s. The Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott, is thought to have been monitored for his union activities during the national seamen’s strike in 1966."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Is this disinformation? Is it possible that some top Labour people have always had friendly links to the security services.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

http://www.lobster-magazine.co.uk/articles/security.htm

"Peter Mandelson... has been around MI6 since his early 20s... Four of the Blair cabinet are alumni of the Anglo-American elite group the British American Project; three of the Blair cabinet have passed muster at Bildeberg meetings."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=+mi6+covert+world&btnG=Search&meta=

The Security services keep a note of government minister's indiscretions. An alleged example of that would be the sexual encounter between Mr A and Mr B (interrupted accidentally by a member of C's staff) in X's office at the House of Commons while in opposition. The services are also allegedly aware of the sexual relationship between former Tory leader Mr D and Mr E.

This could be disinformation.

Election Manifesto

Here is our cooperative's election manifesto -

A Swiss style federal system system should be introduced. Regional 'Cantons' would legislate on matters such as education, health, transport, policing, criminal justice and local taxation. Municipalities would have increased powers.

Issues such as peace and war would have to be decided by a referendum. There would referenda on all major issues, such as whether or not to remove foreign military bases.

The federal constitution would protect basic human rights. A large majority in a referendum would be required to alter the federal constitution.

The federal government would have the power to set certain minimum standards - For example:

1. on the protection of basic human rights
2. on the minimum wage: 14 Euro / £10 sterling/ US $19 per hour.

Federal and local taxation: there would be no income tax on incomes under EUR 24,000/ £17,000 sterling / US $32,000 per year.

Child sex rings linked to top Americans? Part 2

http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2005/02/17/gannon/index_np.html

James Guckert was White House correspondent for Talon News... he "routinely slipped inside the White House briefing room... It now appears clear that Guckert ... was offering himself up online as a $200 an hour male escort" and "benefited from extraordinary preferential treatment, likely granted by someone inside the White House press office."

http://tomflocco.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=107&mode=&order=0&thold=0

James Guckert is alleged to be Jeff Gannon. Some reports suggest Gannon might be the former kidnapped Des Moines, Iowa paperboy Johnny Gosch who was reportedly forced into child sex-slavery.

George W. Bush "has not explained how Guckert/Gannon could apparently operate in the White House as a reporter for 2 years using a secret service approved alias and regularly be called upon by George Bush and press secretary Scott McClellan during nationally televised presidential press conferences".

The Washington Times reported that Paul Bonacci and other call-boys had access to the White House living quarters during a previous administration.

Johnny Gosch was abducted on September 5, 1982 while serving his Sunday morning paper route. Mrs. Gosch said Johnny told her he was kidnapped by a global pedophile ring - linked to the Washington congressional call-boy scandal during the 1980's. Larry King was reportedly involved in the call-boy scandal.

Hunter Thompson was allegedly linked to Larry King, "as implicated in Paul Bonacci's testimony." Pedophile victim Bonacci reportedly revealed that Thompson directed a graphic sex film.

Bonacci testified on videotape (5-14-1990) for Nebraska State Police investigator Gary Caradori. "Bonacci said that while on a trip to Sacramento, he was forced at gun-point to commit homosexual acts on another boy before he watched other men do the same - after which the boy was shot in the head."

Bonacci’s testimony "has been evaluated as credible and well-informed by leading child abuse experts, psychiatrists, psychologists and polygraph tests."

John Decamp told TomFlocco.com that Franklin child-abuse witness "Alisha Owen was convicted of lying that as a minor, she had sex with Omaha Chief of Police Robert Wadman. She was placed in solitary confinement for years--the most brutal treatment of a female inmate in Nebraska history for a first-time offense.... It was done to keep her silent and away from other inmates, but also as a warning to the other children."

21 year-old Alisha Jahn Owen was sentenced on August 8, 1991 to serve nine to twenty-seven years in prison for telling a grand jury that she was sexually abused as a juvenile by a Nebraska District Court judge, by Omaha's Chief of Police, by the manager of the Franklin Credit Union, and others.

Walter Storch, editor of the Barnes Review News, has reported that in 2004 "Karl Rove was seen by one of my people entering a private homosexual orgy at a five-star Washington hotel."

A Barnes reporter told Storch that "Karl greatly enjoyed the supervision of a certain hairy 350-lb. Leather Dominator."

Storch wrote, "Karl used to hang out a JR’s, which is on 17th between P & S streets, before he became so well-known. This is a respectable gay bar for discreet people...," adding, "there is an expensive apartment...over near Dupont Circle that certain powerful senators take turns visiting with their pickups."

"Bush, via Karl Rove, was projected as a moral man who would return a hedonistic America to the simpler virtues of a bygone era. A large part of the American public, unhappy with what they saw as debilitating liberalism, abortion on demand, gay marriage and other forms of moral decay, put Bush back in office," said the Barnes editor.

"Now they have to deal with rampant male whores prancing around the White House in consort with a small army of closet queens, all of whom very obviously have the ear, and the confidence, (and hopefully, that’s all they have) of their ‘moral’ choice for President," said Storch.

TBRNews.org reports "one Supreme Court Justice, several governors (all Republican) and at least one very prominent televangelist" among those high officials who are saying one thing and doing another with respect to Storch's closet queen issue.

Turkey, terror bombs, the CIA and Mossad



Operation Gladio involved “the strategy of tension”. The strategy involved getting right-wing terrorists to carry out terrorist attacks in Europe and in Turkey. Operation Gladio was reportedly organised by Nato and the CIA.

http://www.stopthenato.org/m/zit/id_ses/2337520f9/id_p/10/opt/read_e/id_s/433.html

"The CONTRA-GUERRILLAS, which were the GLADIO organisation in Turkey, were set up from the 1950s onwards and played a significant part in fascist governments during the modern history of Turkey, irrespective of whether these had a veneer of parliamentary democracy or were an overt military junta."

http://www.spitfirelist.com/f059.html

"Utilizing the fascist and ultra-nationalist National Action Party and its youth wing, the Gray Wolves, the Turkish "Stay Behind" also resulted in the type of right-wing terror program and destabilization effort that it did in Italy."

~~~~~~~~

When the Islamist prime minister Necemettin Erbakan took power in 1996, the Turkish military, quickly eased him out of power.

In elections for the Turkish parliament on November 3, 2002, a new party formed out of a banned Islamic movement - the Justice and Development Party (AKP) - won 35 percent of the popular vote and 363 of the 550 seats.

This may have worried the Pentagon, Israel, the Turkish military and the Turkish drugs industry.

~~~~~~~~

http://www.hr-action.org/archive1/990225tjp1.html

According to a report in The Jerusalem Post, intelligence cooperation between the Mossad and the Turkish security service, MIT, "was enshrined in a 12-clause agreement that was signed during a 1993 visit to Israel by then-Turkish foreign minister Hikmat Chetin".

Soon after, according to the London-based newsletter Foreign Report, a large Mossad operation was established in Turkey, with Mossad agents based in both Istanbul and Ankara.

Turkish Top Military Brass meets Wolfowitz
one day before Istanbul Attacks

http://globalresearch.ca/articles/ANA311A.html

The two Istanbul attacks respectively on the HSBC in the financial district and on the British Consulate were, according to media reports "timed to coincide with President George Bush's state visit to London."

The attacks took place one day following the completion of the annual Turkish-US Joint Defense Group meeting (17-19 November 2003).

The British Consul General Roger Short, was killed by the bomb as he was entering the consulate building. Press reports confirmed that he had cancelled an appointment at the last minute and "if he had gone to his appointment, he would have been alive"

The attacks create conditions for Turkey's participation in the war on terrorism.

The attacks serve to strengthen the Anglo-American military axis and the legitimacy of Bush's "War on terrorism."

The Istanbul bombings also serve to uphold the shaky legitimacy of Prime Minister Tony Blair in the face of mounting political opposition to Britain's' participation in the US led war.

Michel Chossudovsky, 11/21/03

~~~~~~~~

http://www.mediareviewnet.com/Zionist%20intelligence%20engineered%20Istanbul%20blasts.htm

"A Turkish daily close to the ruling justice and development party quoted Turkish intelligence sources as saying that the Mossad had established the organization that launched the two attacks on 15th November, 2003."

Turkey is a major refining and transit point for the flow of heroin from Southwest Asia to Western Europe.

Kendal Nezan, writing for Le Monde Diplomatique, has reported that MIT and the Turkish National Police force were actively supporting the trade in illicit drugs not only for fun and profit, but out of desperation.

"After the Gulf War in 1991, Turkey found itself deprived of the all-important Iraqi market and, since it lacked significant oil reserves of its own, it decided to make up for the loss by turning more massively to drugs. The trafficking increased in intensity with the arrival of the hawks in power, after the death in suspicious circumstances of President Turgut Özal in April 1993. According to the minister of interior, the war in Kurdistan had cost the Turkish exchequer upwards of $12.5 billion. According to the daily Hürriyet, Turkey's heroin trafficking brought in $25 billion in 1995 and $37.5 billion in 1996 . . . Only criminal networks working in close cooperation with the police and the army could possibly organize trafficking on such a scale. Drug barons have stated publicly, on Turkish television and in the West, that they have been working under the protection of the Turkish government and to its financial benefit. The traffickers themselves travel on diplomatic passports. The drugs are even transported by military helicopter from the Iranian border."

~~~~~~~

The Middle East Report concluded in 1998 that probably the greatest strategic move in the Clinton post-Cold War years is what could be called "The Ankara Pact"—an alliance between the US, Turkey, and Israel that essentially circumvents and bottles up the Arab countries.

~~~~~~~~~

Earlier in 1998, Israeli, Turkish and American military forces engaged in exercises in the Mediterranean, according to Reuters and Agencie France Press. "'[These exercises] signal to the radical states in the region that there is a strong alliance between Israel, Turkey and the United States which they must fear."

Reports also indicated that the CIA and Pentagon intelligence organizations had regularly chaired meetings of Turkish and Israeli officers in Tel Aviv for years.

Alleged MI5 links to 'bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe'

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,3604,1442918,00.html#article_continue

The Guardian, 22 March 2005, has an interesting story about alleged MI5 links to 'terrorists'.

Mr Qatada is said to be Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe.

A Mr Bisher al-Rawi claims he acted as a 'go-between' between MI5 and Mr Qatada.

Mr Rawi alleges that intelligence agents knew Mr Qatada's location when he was supposedly in hiding after the terrorist attacks of September 11

The claims from Mr Rawi came during a hearing at Guantánamo Bay last year.

Mr Rawi said MI5 agents had reassured him that his relationship with Mr Qatada would not get him into trouble.

According to the Guardian: "a number of Muslims in London doubted that the UK authorities could not find Mr Qatada when he was supposedly on the run from December 2001 to October 2002, in part because so many Muslims here knew where he was.

"According to one report, this was a view shared by French intelligence, which claimed that the British secret services were shielding the cleric."

Israel, Lebanon, crooked banks and money laundering?

http://larouchepub.com/other/2005/3211hapoalim.html

Larouche/EIR has been writing about banks.

On March 6, Israeli police reportedly raided a branch of Bank Hapoalim, Israel's largest bank. The police were investigating 'the largest money-laundering case in Israel's history'.

On the same day, police reportedly raided the offices of exiled Russian oligarch Vladimir Guzinsky, in search of evidence of money laundering.

Israeli Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Zvi Hefetz, Guzinsky's former business partner, 'will be questioned about his possible role in the affair'.

The Lyndon LaRouche theory is that these events are linked to the attempt to make Israel a more important financial centre.

According to Larouche, a senior City of London source stated: "my view on what is happening in Israel and Lebanon is that it has not only a geopolitical dimension, but a financial one. The background to these developments is the fact that Greek Cyprus joined the European Union in May 2004. What has followed is a phasing-out of Cyprus as a financial center for organized crime, drug traffickers, and money launderers, especially the Russian side of this business. Thus, alternative centers have to be found. In the region, Beirut and Tel Aviv become attractive alternatives, which could explain recent events in those two cities."

According to EIR/Larouche, Hariri's assassination ended the idea of making Beirut a major banking centre, for European and southwest Asia . Before his death, Hariri had proposed 'broad cooperation in gas, oil refining, and real estate projects in Russia, Lebanon, and the rest of Southwest Asia'.

(According to EIR/Larouche, a Swiss financial analyst has claimed that Geneva is a major financial centre for organized crime. Banker Edouard Stern was recently murdered in his Geneva apartment.)

EIR/Larouche claims the neo-cons want
1. to grab the region's oil and natural resources
2. throw the entire region into chaos and war.
3. make Tel Aviv the "globalized" financial center for the region.

EIR/Larouche lists those who are behind Bank Hapoalim and the attempt to make Israel a major financial centre.

Lebensraum

http://www.counterpunch.org/jacobs03112005.html


In Counterpunch, RON JACOBS recently wrote about Lebensraum.

In Mein Kampf, Hitler argued it was "Impossible for the Russian by himself to shake off the yoke of the Jew by his own resources, it is equally impossible for the Jew to maintain the mighty empire forever."

To save Russia and the world from the Jews and create lebensraum for the German nation , Hitler went to war.

Jacobs sees Israel as acting like Germany. To justify grabbing lebensraum for the Jewish people, Israeli has to pretend that the Palestinians are incapable of ruling themselves and that Palestine does not belong to the Palestinians.

Jacobs sees the USA as acting like Germany. Jacobs refers to Neil Smith's book The Endgame of Globalization. Smith argues that the US attempt to achieve global domination is the economic version of the lebensraum idea.

According to Jacobs, 9 11 provided 'the excuse for the corporate overseers to make endless war'.

Hitler was bisexual?

In 1933, Jewish author Ludwig Lewisohn said that "the entire Nazi movement is in fact and by certain aspects of its avowed ideology drenched through and through with homoerotic feeling and practice."

German-Jewish historian Samuel Igra, in his 1945 book Germany's National Vice, suggests that a probable reason for Hitler's anti-Semitism is traditional Judaism's opposition to homosexuality

At the age of 16, Hitler moved to Vienna. A young man called August Kubizek joined him and they lived together for four months. Intensely jealous, Hitler wrote to Kubizek, "I cannot endure it when you consort and converse with other young people."

Hitler spent five months at a men's hostel known as "a hub of homosexual activity."

Hitler's rise largely was due to his close friendship with two homosexuals: Ernst Roehm and Dietrich Eckart.

Lothar Machtan, a professor of history at Germany's University of Bremen,writes in his book "Hitler's Secret - The Double Life of a Dictator" that Hitler had relationships with a number of men in his youth.

"We can say that Hitler had several homoerotic friendships up through the1920s," Machtan told Die Welt newspaper." Many of them would be described by people today as homosexual."

Hans Mend, a stableboy who served with Hitler in World War I, said: “We noticed that he never looked at a woman.... In 1915 we were billeted in the Le Febre brewery at Fournes. We slept in the hay. Hitler was bedded down at night with ‘Schmidl’, his male whore. We heard a rustling in the hay. Then someone switched on his flashlight and growled: ‘Take a look at those two nancy boys’.”

Eugen Dollman, Hitler’s interpreter, said that in 1923 he had heard a general in Munich reading from a police file in which young boys claimed that Hitler had paid them to spend the night with him.

The Night of the Long Knives in 1934.

Rohm, who had been with Hitler at the start of the Nazi movement, was a homosexual. Machtan says Rohm was one of very few people who knew about Hitler’s homosexuality. “It must have been Hitler’s nightmare that he would one day launch a smear campaign.”

Rohm was one of about 150 murdered in the Night of the Long Knives. Machtan says the “principal motive” for the slaughter was Hitler’s fear of blackmail.

Machtan refers to Hitler’s “poses,” “gestures and body language,” “his accessories (moustache, whip, etc.),” his “effeminate cast of feature, his taste for muscular, monumental art,” and “the marked pleasure he derived from contemplating the male physique".

Machtan claims Hitler was never very interested in women. His relationship with Eva Braun was almost certainly platonic.

"Human rights organisations have long accused the Colombian security forces of backing the rightwing militias responsible for murders, massacres and drug smuggling."

President Uribe of Colombia:

"As head of the civil aviation authority in the early 1980s he was accused of offences in connection with granting air strip and pilots' licences. He was cleared but later his deputy was jailed for five years for accepting campaign money from the Cali cocaine cartel.

"Then, as mayor of Medellin, the drug barons' 'sanctuary', he allegedly accepted funds from the notorious trafficker Pablo Escobar for two urban regeneration schemes."

"His security advisers General Rito Alejo De Rio, dismissed from the army in 1999, and Pedro Juan Moreno, his former chief of staff in Antioquia, have been accused of connections with the paramilitaries.

"In 1997 and 1998 the US customs seized three shipments of potassium permanganate, essential in the manufacture of cocaine, bought by Mr Moreno's company GMP Productos Quimicos. The Colombian police and the US drug enforcement administration believed that many of GMP's sales invoices were fraudulent.

"In 2000 the DEA confirmed the seizures and concluded that there was "ample evidence" that the chemical might be diverted for illicit use. Mr Moreno insisted that it was for innocent purposes."

Despite these difficulties Mr Uribe won the election with a 53% landslide.

"He won the confidence of Mr Blair when he visited London as president-elect last July."

OPERATION Ore is the UK police inquiry into the buying of child pornography online.

19 January 2003

"The Sunday Herald has had confirmed by a very senior source in British intelligence that at least one high-profile former Labour Cabinet minister is among Operation Ore suspects. The Sunday Herald has been given the politician's name but, for legal reasons, can not identify the person. There are still unconfirmed rumours that another senior Labour politician is among the suspects."

Drug dealing PM?

'Spin' is the book by Martin Sixsmith, who once worked for the Blair government.

Who are the characters in 'Spin'?

Andy Sheen is the Prime Minister and leader of the New Project party.

Selwyn Knox is a government minister in the Department for Society. Knox's senior aide is Sonya Mair. Knox is having an affair with Mair.

Charlie McDonald is the PM's head of communications. His sidekick is Geoff Maddle.
"In the bars of Brixton," McDonald and Maddle "had shared... more women than either recalled or would admit to."

Knox has skeletons in the cupboard: sexual violence, paedophilia and probable murder.

Prime minister Sheen is a former drugs dealer.

How do you become Prime Minister?

http://books.guardian.co.uk/reviews/generalfiction/0,6121,1194106,00.html

From the Guardian/Observer review of 'Spin': "Apparently, all you need is a super computer program which digs up dirt about your opponents' pasts so you can threaten them and they won't oppose you. You don't actually need a clean past yourself: it is possible to become Prime Minister, for instance, having spent a year in Colombia becoming the European arm of a major drugs operation."

Iraq - we are the terrorists?

Independent journalists are risking life and limb to bring out the story.

The picture they are painting is of US soldiers killing whole families, including children, attacks on hospitals and doctors, the use of napalm-like weapons and sections of the city destroyed.

An American from the Inter Press Service interviewed a doctor who had filmed the testimony of a 16-year-old girl.

"She stayed for three days with the bodies of her family who were killed in their home. When the soldiers entered she was in her home with her father, mother, 12 year-old brother and two sisters.

She watched the soldiers enter and shoot her mother and father directly, without saying anything. They beat her two sisters, then shot them in the head. After this her brother was enraged and ran at the soldiers while shouting at them, so they shot him dead," Jamail relates."

Iraq - killing kids with white flags

http://www.antiwar.com/blog/index.php?id=P1916

A report from Michele Naar-Obed, who recently returned from Iraq with a Christian Peacemaker Team:

We interviewed a young Iraqi man who was in Fallujah. He told us about execution style killing of civilians by US soldiers, killing of women and children carrying white flags, and dead bodies with massive burns and unusual injuries indicating the use of white phosphorus (napalm) and other chemical weapons.

Similar reports on Fallujah were given by 2 Iraqi Human Rights workers.

We were also told that about 75% of the city's infrastructure was destroyed. At present, there is no piped water available and the water that is being brought in by government sources is inadequatly chlorinated. There are no functioning hospitals and the closest medical aid station is outside the city limits.

Additionally, we spoke with 2 UN representatives who confirmed all of these reports.

Media controlled by the security services?

MI6 spread lies to put Suharto into power, according to Foreign Office documents. This was reported by theUK's Independent newspaper, 16 April 2000.

http://www.independent.co.uk/story.jsp?story=20187
http://www.bilderberg.org/sis.htm

Foreign Office documents reportedly show that the world's media was lied to by British intelligence as part of a plot to overthrow Indonesia's President Sukarno in the 1960s. The BBC, the Observer and Reuters carried 'fake stories' manufactured by agents working for the Foreign Office.

Propaganda expert Norman Reddaway noted, in a letter to Britain's Jakarta ambassador Sir Andrew Gilchrist, that Gilchrist's stories were broadcast via the BBC. This included an apparently invented story that Indonesian communists were planning to slaughter the citizens of Jakarta.

Reddaway's letter suggests that the Observer newspaper was persuaded to take the Foreign Office "angle" on the Indonesian takeover by reporting a "kid glove coup without butchery".

Cabinet papers show that British spies, including MI6, supported Islamic guerrillas in order to destabilise Sukarno.

Former government minister Lord Healey said: "Norman Reddaway had an office in Singapore. They began to put out false information and I think that, to my horror on one occasion, they put forged documents on the bodies of Indonesian soldiers we had taken."

Lord Healey denied any personal knowledge of the MI6 campaign to arm opponents of Sukarno. But, he added: "I would certainly have supported it."

DAVID MILLER, at Spinwatch, asks if the BBC broadcasts fake news reports, on behalf of the Ministry of Defence.

Miller writes that journalists working for the Services Sound and Vision Corporation (SSVC) have provided news reports to the BBC.

The SSVC is funded by the Ministry of Defence as a propaganda operation.

Spinwatch reveals that Britain has fake journalists. The government pays for their wages and they provide news as if they were normal journalists rather than paid propagandists. Normally they work for British Forces Broadcasting Service.

BFBS is run by the SSVC.

One BBC report:
'Route 6 is the main road North out of Basra. It runs through the badlands of Iraq's marsh Arabs. They make a living from crime - carjackings, smuggling and murder are common place.' (25 November 2004) Is this the British Army view of the Iraqi people?

There were interviews with five separate British soldiers. But there are no interviews with any Iraqis. The report concludes with this propaganda: 'While the Scots Guards remain the ceasefire is likely to hold strong.'

The fighting is targetting the occupation, but the BBC promotes the lie that the army (in illegal ocupation) is a 'peacekeeping' force.

BBC World Service is reportedly funded by the Foreign Office. Their journalists are reportedly employed by the SSVC, the Services Sound and Vision Corporation.

The Foreign Office reportedly runs a network of fake news operations. One of these is allegedly British Satellite News. BSN is broadcast over the Reuters World News Service.

Rumormillnews had the following item on 8 March 2005:

"Channel4 news in the UK ran an article tonight on the massive pro-Syria demonstrations in Lebanon organised by Hizbollah. The reporter Lindsey Hilsum said that the protestors don't blame Syria for the assassination of Rafiq Hariri. But she didn't say who they do blame. In fact although several protestors were interviewed not one was asked who they blame for the murder of Rafiq Hariri. One woman was shown quoting a poem about Lebanon.
This follows on from yesterday when the Syrian Ambassador to Great Britian was live in the studio of Channel 4 News, and he was being asked about UN Resolution 1559. The Ambassador was on for a few minutes replying when he began to talk about Israel and UN Resolution 242. Within a few seconds of beginning to talk about Israel and UN Resolution 242 he looked to his left for some reason, as if there was some sort of disturbance. A few seconds after this the presenter Jon Snow quickly ended the interview. I assume the floor manager had been told by someone to "cut" the interview because Israel and UN Resolution 242 had been mentioned."

http://www.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0,3604,1089931,00.html

Former UK cabinet minister Michael Meacher wrote in the Guardian, November 21, 2003, about Operation Rockingham.

David Kelly, giving evidence to the prime minister's intelligence and security committee, said: "Within the defence intelligence services I liaise with the Rockingham cell."

Former chief weapons inspector in Iraq, Scott Ritter, was a US military intelligence officer. He declared, before the Iraq war, that almost all of Iraq's WMD had been destroyed as a result of inspections, and the rest either used or destroyed in the first Gulf war.

In the Scottish Sunday Herald in June 2003, Ritter said: "Operation Rockingham [a unit set up by defence intelligence staff within the MoD in 1991] cherry-picked intelligence. It received hard data, but had a preordained outcome in mind. It only put forward a small percentage of the facts when most were ambiguous or noted no WMD... It became part of an effort to maintain a public mindset that Iraq was not in compliance with the inspections. They had to sustain the allegation that Iraq had WMD [when] Unscom was showing the opposite."

According to Ritter, "Britain and America were involved [in the 1990s and up to 2003] in a programme of joint exploitation of intelligence from Iraqi defectors. There were mountains of information coming from these defectors, and Rockingham staff were receiving it and then selectively culling [picking out] reports that sustained the [WMD] claims. They ignored the vast majority of the data which mitigated against such claims."

According to Michael Meacher: "Within the UK intelligence establishment... Rockingham clearly had a central, though covert, role in seeking to prove an active Iraqi WMD programme.

Ritter said: "Rockingham was the source of some very controversial information which led to inspections of a suspected ballistic missile site. We ... found nothing. However, our act of searching allowed the US and UK to say that the missiles existed."

Ritter says that Rockingham officers were acting on political orders "from the very highest levels".

David Kelly told the foreign affairs select committee: "I have no idea whether there were weapons or not at that time [of the September 2002 dossier]".

To the intelligence and security committee Kelly said: "The 30% probability is what I have been saying all the way through ... I said that to many people ... it was a statement I would have probably made for the last six months."

Meacher makes the following point: "if the tabloid headlines the day after the September dossier was published had read: Blair says only 30% chance Iraq has WMDs rather than Brits 45 mins from doom (the Sun), would the Commons vote still have backed the war?

~~~~~~~~~~~

23 May, 2000: It was revealed by sections of the Scottish press that the deputy director of the Lockerbie trial briefing unit at Glasgow University, Professor Andrew Fulton, was an MI6 intelligence officer. The unit was supposed to provide "impartial and objective" legal information about the trial and was much used by the TV news programmes.

24/05/00 THE SCOTSMAN: "Prof Fulton has been 'on holiday' since it was revealed that during his 30 year diplomatic career he was a key memberof the MI6 secret service in Europe, Asia and America."

World Bank

http://www.fee.org/vnews.php?nid=1905

The World Bank vs. the World’s Poor by James Bovard

According to James Bovard, the World Bank is helping Third World governments
1. cripple their economies,
2. maul their environments,
3. and oppress their people.

Bovard complains that the bank is responsible for
1. governments having too much control over people and businesses
2. the economic collapse of Africa.

The bank has a long record of supporting human rights violations.

An example: the bank lent Indonesia over $600 million to help with transmigration. Several million people were moved from Java to comparatively barren islands. There were widespread reports of violence. Australian critic Kenneth Davidson called transmigration “the Javanese version of Nazi Germany’s lebensraum.” (Melbourne Age,. June 1, 1986)

The bank’s 1987 annual review noted:
1. 75 per cent of its African agricultural projects have failed.
2. Projects in Latin American and Africa routinely collapse because governments don’t repair roads and infrastructure

In Africa, per capita food production has fallen almost 20 per cent since 1960.

A 1981 Bank analysis of Africa concluded that “Much of ‘the investment in agriculture, especially the domestic component, has gone into state farms, big irrigation schemes and similar capital-intensive activities. These have turned out to be largely a waste of money; their impact on output has been negligible in most cases.”

In Africa, World Bank aid has helped set up many new public enterprises. A 1986 bank report concluded, these enterprises “present a depressing picture of inefficiency, losses, budgetary burdens, poor products and services, and minimal accomplishment of the noncommercial objectives so frequently used to excuse their poor economic performance.”

A 1987 bank study: “Another prevalent weakness in African trade regimes is the granting of import duty exempts to government enterprises and foreign aid financed projects. This practice subjects private enterprises to unfair competition and retards the development of domestic industries capable of making the same products, especially when such exemptions coincide with currency over-valuations and heavy domestic tax burdens on local producers.”

Alan R. Walters, former chief economist for the Agency for International Development: “Foreign aid . . . gives enormous resources and control apparatus to the local administrative elite and thus sustains the authoritarian attitudes corrosive to the development process.”

At the same time Western aid to Third World countries has increased, the United States and Europe have raised new barriers against Third World imports.

According to Bovard, "it would be more beneficial, and far more effective at encouraging healthful Third World economic policies, if we simply stopped giving handouts and simultaneously abolished trade barriers against Third World imports."

The UK budget.

Gordon Brown has failed to tackle the "fundamental unfairness" in the tax system in his ninth Budget, Charles Kennedy has said.

How was it right that the poorest 20% of society were still paying more as a proportion of their income than the richest 20%, the Lib Dem leader asked.

Africa and Israel

http://www.african-geopolitics.org/show.aspx?ArticleId=3097

David Kimche, a former Israeli government official, has revealed some information about Israel's involvement in Africa. According to Kimche:

1. KENYA: Mau Mau leaders were given military training in Israel.

2. ZIMBABWE: Israel helped finance the Accra office of Robert Mugabe's National Front group.

Israel had links to Sally, the Ghanaian who became President Mugabe's wife.

3. TANZANIA: Israel's Mossad set up a spy school in Dar es Salaam

4. GHANA: Around 1959, Israel enjoyed close relations with some of Ghana's leaders.

Israel’s Ambassador to Ghana, Ehud Avriel, became a close confidant of President Kwame Nkrumah.

5. GUINEA: Shiomo Hillel, Israel’s first Ambassador to Guinea, became a firm friend of President Sekou Touré

6. MALI: Rafi Ben Shalom advised President Modeiba Keita

7. CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC: Ephraim Ben Haim forged close ties with the President.

Africa’s trade union leaders were wooed. Israel organized courses and training schools, and established the Afro-Asian Institute in Israel. Many who had links to Israel became Presidents of their countries.

Mossad helped newly independent countries in Africa to establish security and intelligence services.

Mossad spies were regular visitors to the offices and homes of African Presidents and Prime Ministers.

Mossad ran courses for African spies in Israel and in Africa.

After the Six-Day War, in 1967, Israel occupied the Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank and the Golan Heights.

Relations between Israel and white South Africa blossomed. South Africa has a large Jewish community.

Israeli contacts continued with some of Africa’s leaders. Secret meetings were held. Large numbers of Israeli businesses were set up in Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Zaire and elsewhere. Africans continued to attend courses in Israel.

Mossad continued to be active in Ethiopia, Southern Sudan, Kenya and elsewhere.

The Horn of Africa, including Ethiopia in particular, are of strategic importance to Israel.

Israel befriended Ethiopia's Mengistu’s Ethiopia and helped Ethiopia against the Somalis.
