Making America Great, and Saving Israel in the Process – Paul R. Pillar/The National Interest Blog
March 26, 2016 10:42 pm
I noticed how Code Pink attempted to appeal to AIPAC attendies to walk out on the evil Trump. I thought that was odd in the extreme, showing that code pink really is a controled opposition group.
The Unmagnificent Seven: Naming ISIS Allies
November 18, 2015 5:52 pm
It is true that Assad willingly collaborated with the evil 7 just as Saddam of Iraq did. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/10283045/John-Kerry-and-Bashar-al-Assad-dined-in-Damascus.html It is also true that the army holding off the evil seven in Syria is a volunteer army led by Assad. Contrast his longevity vs. Qaddafi and Morsi; this leads me to suspect that Assad is connecting with the people on some real level, enough that people are willing to fight and die rather than risk the alternative. On the recent Paris/Gladio operation: I think the notion of "blow back" is part of the psy-op. The "blow back" notion forces people to suspend judgement on multiple levels. First, the historical record of "terrorist" attacks is overwhelming shown to be sponsored by dark state/occult secret services with Talmudic overspin that sees the vast majority of humans as "Goyim" and of absolutely no real "value" and slaughtering them is of no notice. Second, a brief thought experiment shows that the "targets" make no sense at all, if the actors behind them actually represented a competing ideology to the evil seven, different targets would have a substantially different political effect arguably targets could be selected that would actually harm the evil 7. The Goy across the planet are the target, there is no functional difference between them. My new phrase we are all Amalekites. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/22/magazine/22yeshiva-t.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0
Palestinian minister of disinformation – Sean Durns/TheHill

This is the essence of J-propaganda over and over again never tiring of the same old lie. They know in the cognitive battlefield that volume counts everything else walks. Therefore lie and lie again. The counter strategy has to be aimed at splitting the J's up. Their current internal solidarity with each other is impressive at least from the outside. Recently talking with a friend about hosting a conference "Leaving Judiaca Behind: Strategies for ex-jews"
What now, Einstein?

I am looking for a few good ex-jews. "Recovering Catholic" is a common and socially approved statement. We need more "Recovering Jews" like Gilad Atzmon, Mordici Vannunu, Roy Tov, Paul Eisen and others. We need them to be blowing the whistle on what is going on. We need the Palestinian Diaspora to realize that they have the power and antidote to the Israhell desease. We need universalist humans everywhere to realize that smiling faces tell lies. We need to be "anti-supremacist". We need a lot of things, but most importantly we need to see clearly and be patient waiting for mistakes to be made, like attacking Alison Weir. Hopefully Plato's Gun will surpass Mondoweiss that would be nice!
Mondoweiss Breaks Silence Over The Alison Weir/JVP Controversy – Or Does It?
August 19, 2015 1:19 am
I was always wondering about this Ahmed character, clever deflection, par for the course. Here are the overly long essays laying bare the dysfunction and delusion that occupies the center of the ISO/Mondoweis/jvp pyramidal style organizations. http://www.thenorthstar.info/?p=12011 http://www.thenorthstar.info/?p=12021 As I reread these essays I realized that it was Phan Binh's work that counts. http://www.counterpunch.org/2013/06/24/the-iso-caterpillar-and-democratic-accountability/ Here is the part that talks about CERSC buying Caterpillar stock. "What is remarkable about the ISO in this regard is its lack of transparency. Dues are paid, money is raised, merchandise (books, magazines, and newspapers) is sold, but rare is the ISO member who knows that the organization’s 501(c)(3) – the Center for Economic Research and Social Change (CERSC) – bought and sold thousands of dollars in Caterpillar stock in 2010 in spite of the ISO’s support for the Palestinian boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign’s targeting of Caterpillar for selling Israel the bulldozers it uses to demolish Palestinian homes and kill activist Rachel Corrie. Whether or not buying and selling Caterpillar stock in defiance of the BDS campaign is right or wrong is not my place to decide, it is for the ISO’s membership to decide, and they cannot do so when they have no clue what the organization’s assets or liabilities consist of and are denied any formal control over CERSC. They cannot discuss and decide how best to spend CERSC’s $1.5 million in yearly revenue on organizing projects when these matters are handled internally as a state secret and questions about them from members are viewed as a sign of disloyalty to socialism rather than what they actually are – a principled commitment to the basic democratic norms working-class people are entitled to in their organizations." Unfortunately for Portland, the ISO is quite prominent in the various movements which includes the completely dead in water BDS/Boycott Israel movement. At PSU if you are active at all it seems like the ISO swarms all over you. They are so imbedded at PSU that the ISO has is general meetings in Smith Student Union, try being any other group and getting a meeting space!

Second response here are the links to the local "Palestinian solidarity groups" Notice the stunning lack of activity, especially from the PSU group. AUPHR has no public meetings anymore....http://www.auphr.org/ https://www.facebook.com/PSUSUPER The one time that SUPER had a public meeting, during the ritual murder of Palestinian last year, 60 people showed up ready to act. That was the last meeting, nothing since then. Over the years I have gone to various SUPER meetings or events, the most notable thing has been the number of Israhellie "students" showing up at the Palestinian Solidarity meetings, and the total lack of Palestinian Students at these meetings. I could go on and on, but this one from about 5 years ago is worth linking to. It seems we may be dealing with out and out Mossad agents. http://www.oregonlive.com/news/index.ssf/2010/03/confrontation_between_student.html

First here is the most pathetic part.. the anonymous Harem declaration from the allegedly non-jewish Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights, and the local JVP. Was it a unanimous vote? Or was it the secret leadership that chose to denounce Alison. Home News The Movement for Justice for Palestinians is rooted in Human Rights, Justice and Equality Friday, 14 August 2015 11:15 A Statement by Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights (AUPHR) and Jewish Voice for Peace -Portland (JVP-PDX) Portland, Oregon - August 14, 2015 - Recently, the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and Jewish Voice for Peace issued statements saying that they would no longer work with Alison Weir and If Americans Knew due to Ms. Weir/IAK not working within the principles of anti-racism set by these organizations. See their statements here and here. We agree with the statements and positions taken by both organizations. Anti-racism principles must be a core part of our work if we wish to mainstream our movement and build principled ties to other movements that will lead to mass mobilization in support of Palestinian rights and social justice for all communities. White supremacists have no place in our work. We cannot fight racism by encouraging racists and feeding and validating a racist framework. While challenging Israel’s racist system of inequity is a focus for many of us, we cannot forget the wider context of U.S. complicity, ongoing US support for non-democratic violent regimes around the world, home-grown US racism and systems of inequality, and our own settler-colonial and slavery roots. To treat Israel as a case apart blinds us from joining with other movements and ignores the fact that Israel plays a role in furthering longstanding US foreign policy. We stand firmly that the movement for Palestinian justice deserves its place front and center with all current and historic movements to combat racism, settler colonialism, and dispossession, such as the Civil Rights movement,#BlackLivesMatter, the Immigrants rights movement, the South African anti-Apartheid movement. Our movement should be rooted in time-honored universal principles of universal human rights backed by international law.

Very happy to have stumbled onto this blog after being frustrated with the MW treatment of Alison Weir. All I can do is describe the total lock that JVP has over all "progressive" politics in Portland, and how they have effectively shut down Palestinian Solidarity work here in Portland. It drives me crazy, and yet here it is. In Portland there are a large number of highly articulate Palestinians, whom should be front and center of this movement, instead they have all been deliberately cast aside. Every single "group" in Portland wont make a move without JVP stamp of approval... from the Lutherans to Unitarians, to venues, to the community radio station. Gilad Atzmon has been frozen out as have the activists whom have brought him to Portland now, 4 times. Also I was doing background research on the ISO, international socialist organization..... Trotskyite group that has full run of Portland State University. Lots of dirt on this group has they recently purged the "renewal faction" out of their midst, I bring them up because the non-profit corporation that covers the printing house of the ISO is also the non-profit corporation that backs Mondoweis! The cult leaders of the ISO are the ones whom run this non-profit one wonders at the connections.
