Who are the members of the American Deep State?

I went into the State Department, Near East section and found there was NOT ONE SINGLE Palestinian, NOT ONE SINGLE Moslem, religious … Saudi… you know, Jordanian, NOT ONE Christian protestant… NOT ONE Roman Catholic… NOT ONE PLAIN OL’ AMERICAN whatever from cornpo
EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN ALL OF THOSE OFFICES were either Zionist,
Israeli’s, whatever…  They had pictures ALL OVER THE WALL, Israel, Israel, Israel.  They had magazines, “Israel Today.”  I was given a copy of one.  And, there were yarmulkes and Israeli writing, in other words…. And I asked one of the women after having gone through about four or five of these offices…. I said, as I was pretending like I really wanted…. I was just wanting to know where the Palestinian office was….and she said, ‘well we handle all of that.’  ‘We handle all of that’ [Kay Griggs]*

“We have since worked with a broad coalition of Jewish and non-Jewish groups as well as with United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) to support legislative and regulatory actions requiring divestment from companies that do business with Iran, as well other sanctions.

‘Florida has been a leader in adopting strong measures to isolate the Iranian regime in the areas of procurement, divestment and banking. We encourage local communities across the U.S to join Florida to pass similar measures” said Tara Laxer, Florida Director of United Against a Nuclear Iran.

The Jewish Federation and the Jewish United Fund are two of the donors to UANI. These nonprofit organizations are part of the wider US-based, pro-Israel juggernaut that shapes American national security strategy for Israel. Through connections, money, position and power they seek to immunize Israel from criticism for its mendacious, militaristic policies.

They have succeeded in marginalizing discussion of America’s dangerously pro-Israel policies to the extent that the subject is taboo: Criticize Israel and automatically receive the badge of anti-Semitism.

Meanwhile US warfighters have an additional cross to bear in the world of Islam as they are seen as pawns of Israel. More’s the pity American foes are energized by America’s blind support of a tiny nation, strategically insignificant but with a stranglehold over American national security interests.

Matt Apuzzo writing for the New York Times recently reported that the US Department of Justice has asked that United Against a Nuclear Iran’s donor lists and dollar amounts not be turned over in litigation involving a defamation lawsuit.

Jewish Agency Payments to the American Zionist Council “Quarterly payment to [AIPAC Founder] Mr. I.L. Kenen for public relations services…”

“The Justice Department has temporarily blocked the group from having to reveal its donor list and other internal documents in a defamation lawsuit filed by a Greek shipping magnate the group accused of doing business with Iran.

Government lawyers said they had a “good faith basis to believe that certain information” would jeopardize law enforcement investigations, reveal investigative techniques or identify confidential sources if released.”

Alex Kane of Mondoweiss wrote a piece titled “‘New York Times’ profile of group bent on sanctioning Iran fails to mention Israel connections,” back in June 2013. With a bit of effort he was able to find a number of UNAI’s contributors.

Many of UNAI’s donors can easily be found by doing some research on the World Wide Web. And what one finds, of course, is a superbly networked Jewish community, most on message advocating for the interests of the Israeli government.

These pro-Israel nonprofits serve as the eyes and ears for Israel in the USA and as fundraisers/donors for groups like UNAI, who themselves take guidance from the Israeli government.

Jewish Agency for Israel, Jewish United Fund of Israel

Americans know about the American Israel Political Action Committee and the influence they can bring to bear on American politicians and, through JINSA, American military commanders.

But fewer know about organizations like the Jewish Agency for Israel. Its annual report lists the 156 groups that make up the Jewish Federations of North America. They are located in nearly every major city in the USA.

The Jewish Agency for Israel had $478 million in revenue for 2013, according to its annual report. In that reports trends section it indicates that the Jewish Agency will work with the government of Israeli to enhance the identity of young Jews around the world. Its donor list must be the envy of every nonprofit in America.

The list includes the Tisch Foundation (movies), IKEA (furniture), Rothschild Foundation (banking),  Charles E. Smith (construction in Washington, DC),  Larry Ellison (Cisco Systems), John Hagee (Christian evangelical), and Siemens (telecommunications).

UANI received $25,000 in funding from the Jewish United Fund of Chicago (JUF), a powerhouse fundraising organization connecting those of the Jewish community in Chicago. According to the organization’s board meeting minutes from early 2013 (readily available online), JUF has revenues of $206 million dollars.

Of interest in those meeting minutes is a quote by Colonel Danny Tirza, the designer of the Security Fence that splits Israelis and Palestinians: “Not a single Palestinian home was damaged by the process [of building the fence].”

JUF allocated $30 million for Israel and Overseas Operations according to the board minutes.

JUF was one of the founders of the Israeli Action Network—along with the Jewish Council for Public Affairs and Jewish Federations of North America–whose mission is to fight against the boycott, divestiture and sanctions movement in the United States.

JUF indicated in its board meeting minutes that although the American Studies Association (ASA) passed a resolution in 2013 in favor of boycotting Israeli academic institutions, the Israeli Action Network made a number of non-Jewish contacts and were able to convince a number of American university presidents to condemn the ASA resolution.


FBI investigates the ADL for Espionage 
Like San Francisco District Attorney Arlo Smith who failed to prosecute the ADL for invasion of privacy, tax evasion; or indict Tom Gerard and Roy Bullock as unregistered agents of a foreign government, the FBI investigation was suddenly stopped in its tracks.  David Lehrer, though later fired by ADL National Director Abraham Foxman, was apparently never interviewed about the classified FBI files.  The FBI’s LA field office abruptly closed the espionage investigation on March 22, 1994.  By April, the uncomfortable FBI – ADL liaison, first ordered by J Edgar Hoover and later renewed by William Webster, was back in full swing as AG Janet Reno graciously accepted ADL reports on militia groups and civil suits  the FBI internally categorized as “low value.”  See report “FBI Investigated ADL for Espionage


 The ASA described the outcome of the vote for the resolution thus:  “The members of the American Studies Association have endorsed the Association’s participation in a boycott of Israeli academic institutions.

In an election that attracted 1252 voters, the largest number of participants in the organization’s history, 66.05% of voters endorsed the resolution, while 30.5% of voters voted no and 3.43% abstained.

The election was a response to the ASA National Council’s announcement on December 4 that it supported the academic boycott and, in an unprecedented action to ensure a democratic process, asked its membership for their approval.”

What’s UANI got that Obama’s justice department does not want released?

Ask the FBI and other American counterintelligence agencies two questions: How deep have Israeli operatives penetrated into America’s critical infrastructure sectors, American intelligence agencies, and the US military? Who are the members  of the American Deep State?

As MC Hammer once said, “Can’t touch this.”

US terrorism against the country of Laos

 “The numbers give a sense of the scope. From 1964 to 1973, the United States dropped some 2 million tons of ordnance on Laos, the equivalent of one planeload every eight minutes, 24 hours a day, for nine years.
It made Laos, per capita, the most bombed country in human history. In 1969 alone, the United States dropped more bombs on Laos than it did on Japan during all of World War II.
All told, some 200,000 Laotians were killed in the war—about a tenth of the country’s population. Most were civilians. Nor did the end of the fighting in 1975 stop the killing; over the next four decades, unexploded cluster bombs would kill 20,000 Laotians and maim additional thousands.”

February 2

The struggle for Indochina lasted three decades and caused massive bloodshed and physical destruction in three countries: Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Vietnam was always the heart of the conflict, the site of the heaviest fighting and dying, the place where first French and then American planners invested the bulk of their resources.

So it stands to reason that it’s the fighting in Vietnam that has received the lion’s share of attention from scholars and other authors over the years. That literature is enormous and growing. Still, the disparity is jarring: Next to the mountain of books on Vietnam, there’s barely a molehill on the war as waged in Laos and Cambodia.

All the more welcome, then, to see the appearance of Joshua Kurlantzick’s “A Great Place to Have a War: America in Laos and the Birth of a Military CIA.” Here we get an informative and well-researched overview of the covert war the United States waged in Laos between 1960 and 1975, one that involved both the recruitment and training of a local anti-communist fighting force led by Hmong tribesmen and the launching of a bombing campaign of awesome size.

The U.S. purpose: to tie down the forces of North Vietnam and their Laotian allies the Pathet Lao, and to destroy communist supply lines that moved men and material along the Ho Chi Minh Trail in eastern Laos en route to South Vietnam.

The numbers give a sense of the scope. From 1964 to 1973, the United States dropped some 2 million tons of ordnance on Laos, the equivalent of one planeload every eight minutes, 24 hours a day, for nine years. It made Laos, per capita, the most bombed country in human history. In 1969 alone, the United States dropped more bombs on Laos than it did on Japan during all of World War II.

All told, some 200,000 Laotians were killed in the war—about a tenth of the country’s population. Most were civilians. Nor did the end of the fighting in 1975 stop the killing; over the next four decades, unexploded cluster bombs would kill 20,000 Laotians and maim additional thousands.

The deceitful words of Israel’s UK Ambassador Mark Regev

Readers may wish to see the moments when Jon Snow of Channel 4 News annihilated Regev on air.

“Regev is quoted several times by the Israel Project’s “Global Language Dictionary”, a strange title for a sinister propaganda handbook written specially for those “on the front lines of fighting the media war for Israel”.

This manual teaches how to justify Israel’s slaughter, ethnic cleansing, land-grabbing, cruelty and blatant disregard for international law and United Nations resolutions, and make it all smell sweeter with a liberal squirt of persuasive language. It also incites hatred, particularly towards Hamas and Iran, and is designed to hoodwink us ignorant and gullible Americans and Europeans into believing we actually share values with the racist regime in Israel, and therefore ought to support its abominable behaviour.”

24th January 2017

Revelations that a senior political officer at the Israeli embassy in London, Shai Masot, had been plotting with stooges among British MPs and other maggots in the political woodwork to “take down” senior government figures, including Boris Johnson’s deputy at the Foreign Office, Sir Alan Duncan, should have resulted in the ambassador himself also being kicked out. But he was let off the hook.

That ambassador is the vile Mark Regev, ace propagandist, master of disinformation, whitewasher extraordinaire and personal spokesman for the Zionist regime’s prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu.

Regev (real name Mark Freiberg) took up his appointment here last April, so presumably knew about, if not supervised, Masot’s activities.

“The UK has a strong relationship with Israel and we consider the matter closed,” said the British government. The Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow, who is Jewish, also declined to investigate.

Masot’s hostile scheming was captured and revealed by an Aljazeera undercover investigation and not, regrettably, by Britain’s own security services and press.

Regev is quoted several times by the Israel Project’s “Global Language Dictionary”, a strange title for a sinister propaganda handbook written specially for those “on the front lines of fighting the media war for Israel”.

This manual teaches how to justify Israel’s slaughter, ethnic cleansing, land-grabbing, cruelty and blatant disregard for international law and United Nations resolutions, and make it all smell sweeter with a liberal squirt of persuasive language. It also incites hatred, particularly towards Hamas and Iran, and is designed to hoodwink us ignorant and gullible Americans and Europeans into believing we actually share values with the racist regime in Israel, and therefore ought to support its abominable behaviour.

Readers are instructed to “clearly differentiate between the Palestinian people and Hamas” and drive a wedge between them. It says:

Peace can only be made with adversaries who want to make peace with you. Terrorist organisations like Iran-backed Hezbollah, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad are, by definition, opposed to peaceful coexistence, and determined to prevent reconciliation. I ask you, how do you negotiate with those who want you dead?

The manual features “Words that work” – that is to say, carefully constructed language to deflect criticism and reframe all issues and arguments in Israel’s favour. A statement at the very beginning sets the tone: “Remember, it’s not what you say that counts. It’s what people hear.”

Here’s an example of “words that work”:

Israel made painful sacrifices and took a risk to give peace a chance. They voluntarily removed over 9,000 settlers from Gaza and parts of the West Bank, abandoning homes, schools, businesses and places of worship in the hopes of renewing the peace process.

Despite making an overture for peace by withdrawing from Gaza, Israel continues to face terrorist attacks, including rocket attacks and drive-by shootings of innocent Israelis. Israel knows that for a lasting peace, they must be free from terrorism and live with defensible borders.

Of course, Israel made no sacrifices at all – Gaza wasn’t theirs to keep and staying there was unsustainable. But although they removed their settlers and troops, they have continued to occupy Gaza’s airspace and coastal waters and control all entrances and exits, thus keeping the population bottled up and provoking acts of resistance that give Israel a bogus excuse to turn Gaza into a prison. International law regards Israel as still the occupier.

The manual serves as a communications primer for the army of cyber-scribblers that Israel’s Ministry of Dirty Tricks recruited to spread Zionism’s poison across the internet. It uses some of Regev’s words to provide disinformation essential to this hasbara work.

Mark Regev – habitual liar

We’re told, for example, that the most effective way to build support for Israel is to talk about “working toward a lasting peace” that “respects the rights of everyone in the region”. Regev is quoted:

We welcome and we support international efforts to help the Palestinians. So, once again, the Palestinian people are not our enemy. On the contrary, we want peace with the Palestinians.

We’re interested in a historical reconciliation. Enough violence. Enough war. And we support international efforts to help the Palestinians both on the humanitarian level and to build a more successful democratic society. That’s in everyone’s interest.

The central lie, of course, is that Israel wants peace. It doesn’t. It never has. Peace does not suit Israel’s purpose, which is endless expansion and control. That is why Israel has never declared its borders, maintains its brutal military occupation and continues its programme of illegal squats, or so-called “settlements”, deep inside Palestinian territory, intending to create sufficient “facts on the ground” to ensure permanent occupation and annexation.

Regev is quoted again here:

It was the former UN secretary-general, Kofi Anan, that put four benchmarks on the table. And he said, speaking for the international community that

If Hamas reforms itself…

If Hamas recognises my country’s right to live in freedom …

If Hamas renounces terrorism against innocent civilians …

If Hamas supports international agreements that are being signed and agreed to concerning the peace process… then the door is open.

But unfortunately – tragically – Hamas has failed to meet even one of those four benchmarks. And that’s why today Hamas is isolated internationally. Even the United Nations refuses to speak to Hamas.

Which of those benchmarks has Israel met, Mr Regev?

In a further effort to demonise Hamas, Regev is quoted again:

It’s not just Israel who refuses to speak to Hamas. It’s the whole international community… Most of the democratic world refuses to have a relationship with Hamas because Hamas has refused to meet the most minimal benchmarks of international behaviour.

Isn’t that a little cheeky, Mr Regev, coming from a regime widely condemned for war crimes, piracy and mega-lawlessness? And let’s remember that Hamas and Hezbollah were created to resist Israeli aggression.

Iran must be demonised too, so Regev’s twisted wisdom is used again:

Israel is very concerned about the Iranian nuclear programme. And for good reason.

Iran’s president openly talks about wiping Israel off the map. We see them racing ahead on nuclear enrichment so they can have enough fissile material to build a bomb. We see them working on their ballistic missiles. We only saw, last week, shooting a rocket to launch a so-called satellite into outer space and so forth. The Iranian nuclear programme is a threat, not just to my country, but to the entire region. And it’s incumbent upon us all to do what needs to be done to keep from proliferating.

In the meantime, how safe is the region under the threat of Israel’s nukes? Why is Israel the only state in the region not to have signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Mr Regev? Are we all supposed to believe that Israel’s 200 (or is it 400?) nuclear warheads pose no threat? Would you also like to comment on why Israel hasn’t signed the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention, and why it has signed but not ratified the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty, similarly the Chemical Weapons Convention? What proof do you have of Iran’s nuclear weapons plans?

As for “wiping Israel off the map”, accurate translations of that remark by former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are: “This regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time” (The Guardian), or “This regime that is occupying Qods [Jerusalem] must be eliminated from the pages of history” (Middle East Media Research Institute). Ahmadinejad was actually repeating a statement once made by Ayatollah Khomeini.

Why, Mr Regev, do you persist in misquoting Mr Ahmadjinadad?

Of course, we know why. It’s the good old Mossad motto: “By deception we shall do war”, ingrained in the Israeli mindset. If it was up to me, Mr Regev, you wouldn’t be allowed to set foot in the UK – even with your cute Australian accent.

Marketing blitz fails to stop across-the-board slide in tourism to Israel

27 January 2017

Tourism to Israel fell again in 2016, continuing a negative trend that began with the 2014 assault on Gaza that left more than 2,200 Palestinians, including 550 children, dead.

Figures from Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics show that the expensive efforts to brand the country as a fun, carefree destination, especially for Europeans, are failing.

Overall, the number of visitors to Israel last year dropped by 1.2 percent. This comes after even sharper drops in previous years – 4.4 percent in 2015 and 8.2 percent in 2014.

Big budget

In December, the Tel Aviv newspaper Haaretz reported that Israel’s tourism ministry “was granted its biggest marketing budget ever in the past year as it tried to change Israel’s image as a travel destination and expand the range of tourism offerings.”

The flagship “Two Cities, One Break” campaign was directed at European tourists to attract them to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

It cost more than $23 million, but ministry sources told Haaretz that “the campaign fell flat.”

Israel has also brought D-list celebrities over on free junkets in the hope that their social media postings would draw visitors.

But the number of visitors from Israel’s biggest market, Europe, fell 6.5 percent last year compared with 2015.

The largest number of visitors to Israel comes from France – and those numbers fell from 300,000 in 2015 to 293,000 last year.

There were 18,000 fewer visitors from Germany – a drop of nine percent. The number of visitors from Russia plummeted from 414,000 to 285,000.

Israel did make up some of its losses in Asia: it hosted 86,000 tourists from China, compared with 52,000 in 2015. It also saw about 37,000 more visitors from North America, mostly the United States.

Israel’s woes are not unique: Turkey, which suffered a military coup attempt in July and has been beset by horrific bombing and shooting attacks, saw tourist visits plummet by 21 percent last year.

Egypt continues to see double digit declines in visitors.

But a general sense of danger due to violence in the region is not the whole story.

Jordan managed to buck the trend, recording an increase in tourist arrivals of 2.6 percent in 2016, according to its tourism ministry.

Jordan attracted 3.8 million visitors, compared with just over three million to Israel.

Mixed message, harsh reality

Image result for gay israel

Israel tries to market itself as distinct from the rest of the region – a gay-friendly outpost of “Western” civilization and fun in a tumultuous neighborhood.

But this branding is undermined by the fact that Israel is usually in the headlines because of its brutal occupation and aggressive colonization of Palestinian land, violence in the streets of the cities it is hoping tourists will visit, the racist declarations of its politicians and its underhanded efforts to sabotage the nonviolent boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement for Palestinian rights.

Indeed, Israeli leaders continue to insist that the country is beset by dangers that could “wipe out every Israeli.” While this line is aimed at gaining political sympathy, it hardly makes it an enticing place for people who want to have a good time.

Meanwhile, destinations in Southern Europe, especially Spain, are smashing tourism records.

Incidentally, there’s another notable trend in Spain: since the 2014 attack on Gaza, more than 50 Spanish cities have declared themselves “free of Israeli apartheid.”

Fake Activist Exposed: The Real Linda Sarsour

She is still active so I thought to share. Ikhras is never wrong and neither is Jonathan Azaziah. Myself, I haven’t been paying attention but it’s actually easy to spot the fakes, they are always full of dead giveaways. For example when she said “I do believe Israel has a right to exist”.  A decent, right thinking  person who knows the subject would never say that! I wouldn’t need anymore. But here is more information for total validation.

The following report is partly based on a visit by Ikhras to Brooklyn, New York late last year and interviews with local community activists, former friends and colleagues of Sarsour, and Sarsour family members.]

May 10, 2016
Linda Sarsour is the Executive Director of the local taxpayer-funded Arab-American Association of New York (AAANY) where she began her “activism” over ten years ago. A Sarsour family friend and AAANY founder, Basemah Atweh, invited her to join the organization and assured her if she volunteered she will eventually be offered a paid position

. Less than two months after her “volunteer work” helping newly arrived immigrants get settled and adjust to life in the U.S. Sarsour was hired in a paid, full-time capacity.

Even in those very early years former colleagues who worked with Sarsour noticed she was driven exclusively by personal interests and eager to insert herself in the forefront, especially if an opportunity to meet with members of the local political establishment and power elite presented itself. After surviving a car crash in which Atweh was killed, Sarsour took over the organization.

It was at this time that she reached an arrangement with her husband and family members providing her with the luxury of devoting all her time and attention to transforming herself into a full-time, career activist of the worst kind.

Many poor and working class men and women with far more talent and potential to contribute to their communities do not have the luxury of devoting any amount of time to causes they genuinely believe in, let alone a full-time career as a fake activist without even requiring the services of a paid babysitter.

With the increased media exposure she has been recently receiving, her entire public persona has now become a masquerade inundated with pretense and exaggeration. While much of it has provided entertainment for Arab-Americans in NY, activists are now concerned the activities of this fraudster have become politically corrosive to the issues and causes of concern to the community.

Israel has a right to exist”

Early Years At AAANY

Early Years At AAANY

 

So what’s the first thing a self-described Arab-American activist does when she decides to run for local public office? For Sarsour the answer to that question was obvious, you declare your acceptance of and support for the Zionist colonial project in Palestine.

Sarsour, who was born and raised in Brooklyn, is planning a run for the NY City Council. In preparing the groundwork for her 2017 campaign, the ambitious Palestinian-American revealed she is ready and willing to abandon her own Palestinian community and betray her tormented country of origin.

In this interview with a local news channel Sarsour states “I do believe Israel has a right to exist”, a euphemism for normalizing and legitimizing the Zionist entity, ethnic cleansing and settler-colonialism.

In the same interview Sarsour is also quoted as rejecting “violence” [armed resistance in Palestine], as if someone sitting in the comfort and safety of their NY home has a right to lecture a colonized people on the other side of the world on the appropriate and acceptable strategies and methods of their own self-defense and resistance to military occupation.

  Sarsour does not deviate very far from the rigid Zionist narrative that dominates discourse on Palestine in this country. Always careful to not offend the political sensibilities of the U.S. ruling class, she maintains her mild criticism of Israel within strictly defined parameters.

She has repeatedly attacked Palestinian resistance fighters including members of her own family living under occupation in Palestine. One especially disgraceful example of this can be found here. In another appearance as part of a “focus group” of Muslim Americans Sarsour reiterated her support for Israel’s so-called “right to exist.

When pressed by the professional manipulator Frank Lutz the political adolescent was oblivious to the racist implications of the questions. With her political ambitions clearly foremost on her mind, she strained to provide answers that do not deviate from acceptable public discourse.

In doing so, she played into the Zionist narrative and revealed a complete lack of conviction and inability to defend the cause of Palestinian liberation in any forceful or coherent fashion. She was, however, able to exploit her Palestinian background in order to claim some type of native insight or legitimacy which is a common tactic among many establishment Arab-Americans.

Sarsour, who now regularly invokes the Palestine cause and claims “Palestine has always been my passion”, has never been active on Palestinian issues until relatively recently and only when it became a bit safer to do so as a result of the hard work of many other courageous Palestine solidarity activists.

These same activists have shunned Sarsour for her exploitation of the Palestine cause and labor theft of other people’s solidarity work which she claimed as her own. Sarsour also earned the ire of Palestinian-Americans after describing Palestinians protesting in NY as “thugs”, an epithet she had exclusively reserved to describe a certain segment of African-Americans. Sarsour’s racism will be fully addressed below.

Sarsour does not speak for Palestinians in NY, across the diaspora or under occupation, and her views do not reflect the Palestinian consensus or their national aspirations. She also does not represent the views of the larger Arab-American community.

The political exigencies of running for NY City Council require Sarsour to pursue her amateurish version of a political triangulation strategy, posing as a champion of Palestine while reaffirming Israel’s “right to exist.”

However, there are 11 Million Palestinians and over 300 Million Arabs who are not running for NY City Council in 2017. Their position and the position of the Palestinian and Arab-American communities remains unchanged.

The structures and institutions of the Zionist entity created in 1948 must be fully dismantled, and all Palestinian refugees and their descendants have an inalienable right to return to their homes and lands of origin with full restitution of all their confiscated property in a single, unified, and liberated Palestine.

“Iftar” At Gracie Mansion With Mayor De Blasio During 2014 Ramadan Massacre

 

“Iftar” At Gracie Mansion

During the first year of his term NY Mayor Bill de Blasio gave an outrageous, but not unusual, speech at an AIPAC conference in which he expressed his full support for Israel.

By that time Sarsour was already featured on the White House website as a “champion of change”, a sure indicator an Arab or Muslim-American has been vetted, approved, and attained that coveted entry into the American mainstream.

Rather than being featured on US government websites or invited to government-hosted “Iftars”, truly dedicated activists that defend Palestinian rights have usually been persecuted by the government.

See here, here, and here. Framing herself as a radical champion of the people while working with the Muslim Democratic Club of New York to advance her career, she decided to maintain close ties to the Democratic Mayor.

Later that same year, July 2014, Israel launched its third onslaught on Gaza since dismantling its illegal, Jewish-only colonies and occupation coordination centers and repositioning its occupation army outside the narrow coastal strip of Palestine.

The massacre, which happened to coincide with the month of Ramadan, resulted in the wholesale slaughter of over 2100 defenseless Palestinian civilians.

The same week de Blasio came out in support of the massacre he also extended an invitation to Sarsour to attend an “Iftar” at Gracie Mansion as the ostensible representative of the NY Muslim community.

Sarsour accepted the invitation and as she sat down to enjoy her breaking of the fast (Sarsour does not fast and is hardly religious although she does invoke religion when it serves her purpose) the bombs were still falling on the children of Gaza.

Sarsour later tweeted a picture of herself with de Blasio adding the words “honored to dine with Mayor de Blasio at Gracie Mansion.” At the time ikhras still maintained a cordial relationship with Sarsour and expressed directly to her our disappointment.

She responded by saying she had to ignore it because she was trying to “play politics and its dirty” and she had “two campaigns [Muslim school holidays and NYPD intelligence practices] she needed to see through.” (We later learned she was known to have previously been very cooperative with NYPD intelligence practices).

When we pressed her she became very defensive, said something indecipherable about an “inside out strategy”, and attacked other Palestinian “activists” (she used the quotes) and organizations.

She specifically mentioned Al-Awda and Adalah suggesting they were not doing anything and that she cannot be expected to do it all herself. We asked her to consider the impact she could have had and imagine how our community would have supported her had she declined the invitation and publicly stated it was due to the de Blasio’s endorsement of the massacre.

In the end, the seduction of a photo-op with the Mayor and the perceived petty prestige that comes with it was apparently just too much to resist. The willingness of a second generation Palestinian-American to ignore de Blasio’s endorsement of an ongoing massacre goes well beyond the ordinary, unprincipled political pandering in the interest of careerism. It is downright immoral and speaks volumes about the character and motivations of such an individual.

 “Brooklyn Homegirl In A Hijab”

Former friends of Sarsour tell us with her rising public profile came a remarkable change in her private and public behavior. Her unabashed, self-serving approach has alienated many people and her early connections to the community and former colleagues are now virtually non-existent.

She has also cultivated a public persona that those who knew her tell us is dramatically unlike the Sarsour they had encountered and previously worked with. Even Palestinian-Americans who do not know Sarsour personally recognize a caricature type quality to her public behavior.

In what is apparently an attempt to adhere to some stereotypical Brooklynite image, complete with an exaggerated and pretentious accent, she now comes across as an Arab parody of Rosie Perez. While most of it is amusing, at least for a short while, one public stunt was very troubling.

"Brooklyn Home Girl"

“Brooklyn Home Girl”

 

In September of 2014 Sarsour claimed she was the victim of a hate crime, but in the Brooklyn neighborhood where the alleged incident took place there is a consensus this was nothing but an attention-seeking hoax and media ploy.

Sarsour claimed she was attacked by a man who hurled slurs and threatened to behead her. It turned out the alleged assailant was a well-known 45-year old mentally ill, local homeless man.

Residents of the Bay Ridge neighborhood where Sarsour maintains her office and the alleged incident took place told ikhras he has been a permanent fixture in the neighborhood for years and is totally harmless. He is so well known, in fact, he has been dubbed “the bum of Bay Ridge.”

Local residents were shocked when they heard her story because he has never attacked anyone in the past. Among those who were most skeptical of Sarsour’s story were local Mosque attendees and members of her own family.  “He would always be drunk and say stupid things”, one resident said, “but he has never attacked anyone.”  

The alleged attacker did have a previous arrest record for non-violent, petty misdemeanors, but we could not find a single person in the neighborhood who considered him a threat. Another interesting fact casts more doubt on Sarsour’s story.

On the day of the alleged incident Sarsour had called the police before the alleged attack reporting the alleged assailant as a “suspicious person” as if he is unknown.

This is rather strange given that the “suspicious person” was a regular fixture in the neighborhood well-known to Sarsour and the rest of the residents by name. In all likelihood, the homeless, neighborhood drunk was, as usual, making stupid comments and kicking around a trash can.

Instead of providing him with a hot meal and helping him find shelter, Sarsour decided to exploit his presence near her office to fabricate a hate crime casting herself as the fearless defender of the community under attack for her work on our behalf.  

Sarsour took to Twitter and Facebook assuring everyone she was doing fine, thanked them for their concern and condolences, and pledged to never be intimidated or back down. After all, she is tough and everybody knows you “don’t mess with Brooklyn.”

In post 9-11 America Muslim women wearing the hijab are the most vulnerable segment of our community. They have endured everything from shaming and suspicious gazes to harassment to outright violence and murder.

Last year’s shooting deaths of three Muslim students in Chapel Hill, N.C. was undoubtedly a hate crime. It was only because two of the three victims were women wearing the hijab that the ignorant murderer was able to identify the otherwise all-American-looking students as Muslims.

For Sarsour to exploit the current environment of Islamophobia and the very real dangers encountered by Muslim women wearing the hijab to engage in a publicity stunt is not only manipulative and unethical, but outright disgraceful. It also provides further insight into her motivations while revealing a complete lack of a moral compass.

Roll me another one, just like the other one. Sansour is bashing Hersi recently, it’s a red herring. They are working for the same puppet master

Black Lives Votes Matter

In addition to her cynical manipulation of the Palestine cause, Islamophobia, and other issues of specific concern to the Arab and Muslim communities, Sarsour has recently began peppering her Rosie Perez imitation with the stereotyped affectation attributed to Black inner-city youth by the racist White media and attached herself to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

With its growing strength, Sarsour has calculated that deepening her ties to the movement will serve her well in any future campaign for public office.

She has all but declared she is running for NY City Council next year and has publicly stated it is a “small first step” towards being the “first hijabi in Congress.” Although the African-American community is not heavily represented in the city council district she would be running to represent, it does compromise about 35% of the district she would be running for in any future Congressional bid.

Here again, we see the amateurish version of political triangulation at work as she strives to ingratiate herself with the racist White system while simultaneously posing as a friend of the Black victims of that same system.

Sarsour Getting Arrested At BLM Protest

Sarsour Getting Arrested At BLM Protest

 

When Trayvon Martin was murdered Sarsour penned an article titled “My hijab is my hoodie” and declared herself “among the millions mourning the killing of Trayvon”, but had this young black youth been living in Sarsour’s neighborhood he would not have been allowed into her home or anywhere near her own kids and family.

And when Michael Brown was murdered Sarsour found the time and resources necessary to fly to Ferguson, MO and position herself strategically in front of the media cameras. S

ince then she has continued with her shameless, attention-grabbing tactics including periodic orchestrated arrests. African-Americans did not endure police brutality including getting beaten, hosed down, attacked by police dogs and killed during the Civil Rights Movement so a second generation Arab-American in the early 21st Century can joyfully get arrested in front of the cameras before being released a few minutes later to continue the “revolution.”

In our visit to NY we encountered a strong backlash against this aspect of Sarsour’s activities among those who know her best. It turns out Sarsour is known to harbor an ugly racism towards African-Americans which makes her latching onto the BLM movement all the more galling.

She rarely associated with or interacted with African-Americans (this explains why she views African-Americans through the prism of racist, media stereotypes) until the “activist” with political aspirations realized it can be to her benefit.

Sarsour’s racism which she is now trying to hide is common knowledge among the Arab-American community in NY, and it is members of this community that have a moral obligation to point out the foul racists and two-faced hypocrites.

Given the close familial and social ties that exist among Palestinian-Americans in NY does not absolve us of this responsibility and failing to do so makes us complicit in their racism.

Although not all activists within the BLM are familiar with the real Sarsour, many have, nevertheless, begun expressing reservations about her current role in the movement:

We’re concerned that the group’s liberal politics and their ties to the mayor’s office, and for instance, someone like Linda Sarsour, with political aspirations, will prioritize being conciliatory at a time when liberal gatekeepers must be challenged and held accountable,” the activist said. “Despite their rhetoric, their actions are already interpreted as watering down progressive and human rights work in the city.”

BLM activists can be certain that for the Palestinian-American who was “honored to dine” with the Mayor during an ongoing massacre of Palestinians that he endorsed, nothing matters more than returning for another meeting or photo-op. And Sarsour has managed to use the BLM movement precisely for that purpose:

After two NYPD Legal Affairs Bureau officers were assaulted on the Brooklyn Bridge in December after a large demonstration, Mayor de Blasio met with members of the Justice League, who, the mayor said, agreed to identify anybody who “seeks to harm the police or harm anyone and undermine their non-violent peaceful progressive movement.”

The mayor seemed to be positioning the Justice League as a wedge between him and more radical elements of the movement. The Justice League issued a press release right after the meeting that did not address this assertion.

Still, some members of the group began to vehemently deny the mayor’s claim on Twitter. Sarsour blamed the “corporate media,” not de Blasio, for trying to discredit and spread division between protesters. The next day, the group tweeted a statement saying they would not work with the NYPD to identify protesters.

Sarsour is increasingly on the defensive but we must ensure that pressure is maintained and she is fully exposed. We need real solidarity between Arab and Black and all communities of color, especially among the poor and working class. Excellent solidarity relations have already been established and a solid foundation has been laid as we move forward: see here, here, here, and here.

We must continue to broaden, deepen and strengthen Arab-Black solidarity and that requires us to extirpate the unprincipled opportunists motivated by personal ambitions from exploiting and manipulating our joint struggle. Failure to do so will eventually undermine and reverse the achievements that have already been made in this area.

Sarsour At Sanders Campaign Rally

Sarsour Raises The Clenched Power Fist At Sanders Campaign Rally

 

Feign The Bern

More recently Sarsour has attached herself to the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. Sarsour, like others within the Arab and Muslim communities, has been fawning over Sanders for his mild criticism of Israel and conceding Palestinians are human beings deserving of respect and dignity.

We are not as impressed with Sander’s position on Palestine and disagree with his Arab and Muslim supporters in this country, but that is a discussion beyond this blog post. We do recognize that many of his Arab and Muslim American supporters, which include many of our own friends, support him in good faith and deserve our respect. However, unlike his good-faith supporters that genuinely “feel the Bern”, Sarsour’s support is disingenuous, opportunistic, and, like all her “activism”, motivated by self-interest.

Her role in the Sanders campaign in NY has been invaluable in preparing for her own campaign next year. It provided her even more media access and presented her with yet another opportunity to latch on to an independent phenomenon in the name of the Arab and Muslim communities.

But Sarsour simply cannot reconcile her claim that her support for Sanders is partly based on his recognition of the humanity and dignity of the Palestinian people with her support for other Democratic politicians that wholeheartedly support the Zionist project in Palestine and endorse Israeli massacres.

Anyone willing to ignore the wholesale slaughter of Palestinians cannot subsequently claim their support for another politician is based on his condemnation (what Sanders actually said is that Israel acted “disproportionately” in responding to “terrorism”) of the same slaughter you were willing to disregard when it served your self-interest.

We do not support Sanders and are not interested U.S. electoral politics (see ikhras FAQs #9), but it is the members of our community who support Sanders that should be most concerned with the role Sarsour has played in his campaign.

“Uncle Nihad”, CAIR And The War On Syria

Sarsour claims her support for Sanders is also based on his opposition to the criminal U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq. Ironically, Sarsour has recently joined with U.S.-based Islamist organizations and activists to call for a U.S. war on Syria.  Sarsour, of course, is not an Islamist nor does she have any knowledge or understanding of any political parties or movements in the Arab world.

In the earlier stages of the war on Syria Sarsour expressed some kind sentiments towards Syrians and told us she “does not support any side” and was only concerned about the suffering of the Syrian people.

She also asked questions and showed a desire to be educated and learn about what is actually happening. Knowing she was born and raised in the U.S. and had little knowledge of Syria and Arab politics, we did what we can to help her understand and warned her about the false narratives that were being peddled by U.S regime media and the U.S.-based Islamists she had begun to flirt with at the time.

All this changed in 2013 when the ikhras-shoe-of-the-month-award-winning Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) presented Sarsour with their first “American Muslim of the Year award.” The following year CAIR invited her to MC their 20th Annual Banquet.

At that banquet Sarsour referred to CAIR Executive Director and Muslim Brotherhood supporter Nihad Awad as “Uncle Nihad.” Since then “Uncle Nihad” and the Islamists at CAIR have been able to easily manipulate the gullible, second generation Arab-American when it comes to U.S. foreign policy advocacy.

She has now begun parroting talking points fed to her by the Muslim Brotherhood contingent within CAIR and engaging in pseudo-moralistic ranting while calling on the U.S. regime to “intervene” in Syria. Sarsour is one of those clueless Arab-Americans that feign knowledge of the Arab world by invoking their ethnic heritage, another common tactic often used by members of our community.

Regardless of one’s interpretation of events in Syria, it is not the role of Arab or Muslim Americans to be calling for more imperialist wars on any Middle Eastern countries, especially when they lack even the most basic knowledge about the region, its political actors and current events.

Community Backlash  

Arab and Muslim Americans are appalled that very serious issues and challenges facing our community are being used in such a cynical and manipulative way to further the petty ambitions of a political dilettante. By now it is clear Sarsour has no genuine convictions or principles nor is she actually committed to any cause other than her own full-time hobby.

To that end she has demonstrated no hesitation to exploit any cause whether it is Palestine, combatting Islamophobia, fighting racism, police violence and surveillance, immigration reform, mass incarceration, and a myriad of other social justice issues.

In addition to a lack of conviction and principles, Sarsour has also demonstrated a very shallow understanding of her own favorite topics. Her knowledge of U.S. history, politics, and society does not extend beyond a Middle School curriculum and she approaches these subjects without any serious thought or critical analysis. Nevertheless, Sarsour has acquired important skills and abilities that have served her well.

She has, for example, demonstrated an ability to memorize and regurgitate pseudo-revolutionary rhetoric and various slogans for specific causes. She has also been adept at exploiting her different identity markers such as Palestinian, Arab and Muslim, and depending on the topic or event, is capable of offering herself as a useful prop. She has also shown a great deal of skill in latching onto independent phenomena such as the BLM or a presidential campaign when she perceives it to serve her long-term interests.

Sarsour Ignored Mayor De Blasio's Vocal Support For Israeli Massacres

Sarsour With Mayor De Blasio, A Vocal Supporter Of Israeli Massacres

 

For Sarsour, like all establishment Arab-Americans, there has been a direct inverse relationship between her access to government and media and her links to the community. Her relations with grassroots Palestinian and Arab-Americans are virtually non-existent at this point.

The few activists that once worked with Sarsour are refusing to deal with her and have been turned off by her cynical manipulation of legitimate causes and issues of concern to our community. The initial entertainment value of the “homegirl from Brooklyn” shtick has grown stale and taken on a parodic quality.

Sarsour will undoubtedly continue her ego-driven, one-person circus act. She recently hired a professional videographer to produce a self-promotional video in which she explains she is very modest and humble.

She will also continue to present herself to the Democratic establishment as someone with influence within our community and will present herself to the community as someone with influence within the establishment.

In reality, she will remain irrelevant within both, with no grassroots support within the community and no influence within the establishment. This will not, however, prevent her from pursuing her full-time career by ostensibly representing each one to the other (James Zogby has been playing this same role for decades). This irrelevance within her chosen sphere of activities should not be conflated with a lack of impact.

Her activities, especially when conducted in our collective community name, do have a corrosive impact on the causes and concerns of the Arab and Muslim communities, and undermine the hard work of dedicated activists.

When we launched the ikhras project we explained to our community and readers it was made necessary because U.S.-based Arab and Muslim “activists” and self-declared representatives hijacked our collective community name for their own self-aggrandizement and in furtherance of personal ambitions unrelated to our communities’ agenda, interests, and well-being.

Clearly enjoying a rising public profile, Sarsour is the latest manifestation of this behavior and represents a new generation of the same opportunists and careerists ikhras was launched to expose.

85% Of The 1917 Soviet Government Was Made Up By Rothschild Zionist Khazars

This is where we begin to study about today

In reality, the [Misnomer] Jewish [Was Actually Zionist Khazars] Bolshevik government ruthlessly persecuted Christians in particular, and protected Jews [Zionist Khazars]

Russian president Vladimir Putin has said that Jews made up “80 to 85 percent of the first government of the Soviet Union” following the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.

Putin’s speech, made on June 13 2013, was reported by the official Jewish Telegraphic Agency in an article six days later dealing with Putin’s visit to the Moscow “Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center.”

According to the JTA report, Putin said with reference to a library belonging to Rabbi Joseph I. Schneerson, the late leader of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, that he “thought about something just now: The decision to nationalize this library was made by the first Soviet government, whose composition was 80-85 percent Jewish.”

According to the official transcription of Putin’s speech at the museum, he went on to say that the politicians on the predominantly Jewish Soviet government

“were guided by false ideological considerations” and supported the arrest and repression of all faiths.”

On this latter point, Putin is of course incorrect, and he was probably avoiding the truth so as not to stir up a hornet’s nest against himself.

Anti-Semitism was made illegal and punishable by death, and the only time Lenin’s voice was ever recorded was to make a widely distributed record denouncing anti-Semitism as “counter-revolutionary.”

1913 – Jacob Schiff sets up Rothschild’s Anti Defamation League (ADL) in the United States.  This organisation is formed to slander anyone who questions or challenges the Rothschild global conspiracy as, “anti-semitic.”

Rothschild is not a practicing Jew by Judaism or By Blood Line. He is a common khazarian thug, but he likes to hide behind the word Jew as the coward he is when absconding people’s wealth.

In addition, the early Soviet government actually gave special privileges to Jews, which included the creation of a separate homeland meant for Jews only, called the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, situated in the Russian Far East.

The Bolsheviks established the autonomous oblast in 1934 to provide the Jewish population of the Soviet Union with a large territory in which to pursue Jewish culture.  According to the 1939 population census, 17,695 Jews lived in the region (16% of the total population). The Jewish population peaked in 1948 at around 30,000, about one-quarter of the region’s population.

Rothschild’s ~ real surname is Bauer

1760:

During this decade Mayer Amschel Bauer works for a bank owned by the Oppenheimers’ in Hanover, Germany.  He is highly successful and becomes a junior partner. Whilst working at the bank he becomes acquainted with General von Estorff.

Following his father’s death, Bauer returns to Frankfurt to take over his father’s business. Bauer recognises the significance of the red hexagram and changes his name from Bauer to Rothschild, after the red hexagram or sign signifying 666 hanging over the entrance door (“Rot,” is German for, “Red,” “Schild,” is German for, “Sign”).

Rothschild Used His Red Hexagram And Simply Made It Blue For His Property Israel. He Called This The Star Of David But It Is Not Biblical. It Is The Star Of David Al-Roy A Zionist Khazar. Israel’s Star of David (interlaced triangles) symbol, is 2 overlapping triangels known as the Morgan David or Star of David. Not the David of the Bible or Qu’ran, but of David Al-roy a 12th century false prophet. It is also used by the Masonic Temple. So to better understand you could say Morgan Al-roy wine or Star Of Al-roy.
