MUSLIMS (AND CHRISTIANS) THE BAD GUYS? a Radical Press Public Service Announcement

KeepYerEyeontheBall!BLUE copy

Editor’s Note: Let’s not delude ourselves about who the real enemy of humanity is. Those who fall for the lies of the Zionist media campaign against the Muslims (as well as the Christians) are being hoodwinked into aiding and abetting the Jewish agenda of divide and conquer of nations for the benefit of their NWO program. Stay focused on the ultimate designers of deception – Israel and World Jewry headed by the Rothschild criminal cartel.

Why is a Hate Campaign being Waged against Muslims?
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky

Why is a hate campaign being waged against Muslims?

Why are Muslims increasingly categorized as terrorists?

Why is this hate campaign  part of the US  presidential election campaign?

Why is Donald Trump calling for police state measures directed against American Muslims?

Why are Muslims the object of ethnic profiling and job discrimination?

Why has France’s president Francois Hollande suspended civil rights coupled with a hate campaign directed against France’s Muslims, which represent 7.5 percent of the country’s population?

Why is the West waging a war against Muslim countries?

Why is Islam regarded as evil?

The answer to all these questions is both simple and complex.

It just so happens that more than 60% of the World’s reserves of crude oil lie in Muslim lands.

Muslims are the inhabitants of the countries which possess the oil.  And America’s imperial agenda consists in acquiring ownership and control over the World’s oil reserves.

If these lands had been inhabited by Buddhists, Western politicians –with the support of the mainstream media– would be demonizing the Buddhists.
Muslim countries including Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Yemen, Libya, Nigeria, Egypt, Algeria, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, possess more than 60 percent of the World’s crude oil reserves.

With regard to conventional crude oil (excluding tar sands in Venezuela and Canada), the percentage of global (conventional crude) oil reserves in Muslim countries is much larger.

Countries which possess large reserves of crude oil are slated for destabilization.

More than 50 percent of the World’s crude oil reserves lies between the tip of the Arabian peninsula and the Caspian Sea basin: Yemen, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Azerbaijan.

The above region is America’s war theater. That is where the battle for oil under the banner of the “war on terrorism” is being fought. Those are the Muslim lands which have been slated for conquest or regime change. Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf monarchies and emirates are US proxy states, firmly under US control.

The collective demonization of Muslims, including the vilification of the tenets of Islam, applied Worldwide, constitutes at an ideological level, an instrument of conquest of the World’s energy resources. It is part of the broader economic, political mechanisms underlying the New World Order.
This vilification is carried out by actually creating terrorist organizations integrated by Muslims, as part of a longstanding intelligence operation going back to the Soviet-Afghan war.

Al Qaeda and its affiliated organizations are creations of the CIA. They are not the product of Muslim society. Terrorist attacks are undertaken by jihadist entities which are CIA intelligence assets.

The Islamic State (ISIS) is an intelligence construct which is used essentially for two related purposes.

1. They are the foot soldiers of the Western military alliance, the instruments of destabilization, recruited, trained, financed by the Western military alliance. The various al Qaeda entities are the instruments of destabilization in US-NATO sponsored proxy wars (AQIM in Mali, Boko Haram in Nigeria, ISIS in Syria and Iraq). At the same time, they constitute a pretext and a justification to intervene under the banner of a “counter-terrorism” bombing campaign.

2. On the home front, the various Al Qaeda/ ISIS terrorist cells –supported covertly by Western intelligence–  are the  instruments of a diabolical and criminal propaganda operation which consists in killing innocent civilians with a view to providing legitimacy to the instatement of  police state measures allegedly in support of democracy. These false flag attacks allegedly perpetrated by terrorist organization are then used to harness Western public against Muslims.

The underlying objective is to wage a an illegal war of conquest in the Middle East and beyond under the banner of the “global war on terrorism”. According to Western politicians, “we are defending ourselves against the terrorists”. According to our governments, the bombing raids allegedly directed against the terrorists in Syria are “not an act of war”, they are presented to Western public opinion as an “act of self-defense”. “The West is under attack by the ISIS terrorists”, the ISIS is based in Raqqa, Northern Syria, “we must defend ourselves” by bombing ISIS.

We are told that this is not an act of war, it is an act of retribution and self-defense. The only problem with this propaganda op is that “The Terrorists R US”, our governments and intelligence services have been supporting ISIS from the very outset.

In the eyes of public opinion, possessing a “just cause” for waging war is central. A war is said to be Just if it is waged on moral, religious or ethical grounds. Muslims within Western countries are being vilified as part of an imperial agenda, as a means to justify the destabilization of Muslim countries on humanitarian grounds (e.g. Iraq, Syria, Libya, Nigeria, Yemen).

America is waging a holy crusade against Muslims and Muslim countries.  The “war on terrorism” purports to defend the American Homeland and protect the “civilized world”. It is upheld as a “war of religion”, a “clash of civilizations”, when in fact the main objective of this war is to secure control and corporate ownership over the region’s extensive oil wealth.

Throughout history, vilification of the enemy has been applied time and again. The Crusades of the Middle Age consisted in demonizing the Turks as infidels and heretics, with a view to justifying military action.

Demonization serves geopolitical and economic objectives. Likewise, the campaign against “Islamic terrorism” (which is supported covertly by US intelligence) supports the conquest of oil wealth.

Muslims are equated with terrorists: Islamophobia serves to wage nationwide campaigns against Muslims in Europe and North America.

It is an instrument of war propaganda used to degrade the history, institutions, values and social fabric of Muslim countries, while upholding the tenets of “Western democracy” and the “free market” as the only alternative for these countries.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Once again, please feel free to use whatever information is contained in this Report in order to spread the news concerning this important trial further afield.

To date only the local Quesnel Cariboo Observer, and CBC Prince George have given coverage to the story so it’s now firmly established that Canada’s major news networks (all of which are either controlled or heavily influenced by the foreign Zionist lobby) have no intention of informing the general public on this matter.

As I previously stated in the first report it’s up to the alternative news media to do its best to cover this important historic event in Canadian jurisprudence and bring it to the attention of internet readers around the world.

The original time period allotted for the trial indicated that it would conclude by Friday, November 6th but such is not the case. It will now carry on into week three and likely conclude on Tuesday, November 10th one day prior to Canada’s federal holiday known as Remembrance Day.
Thank you.

Sincerely,

Arthur Topham

Report on week two of
Supreme Court Trial R v Roy Arthur Topham

by
Arthur Topham

The second week of Canada’s Sec. 319(2) “Hate Propaganda” trial R v Roy Arthur Topham got underway Monday morning, November 2nd, 2015.

Witness #1 former Det. Cst. Terry Wilson of the BC Hate Crime Team

During the fourth day of the first week of testimony (October 29, 2015) Defence attorney Barclay Johnson had cross examined former Det. Cst. Terry Wilson the lead investigator involved in the current Sec. 319(2) charge, arrest and incarceration of Mr. Topham back in May of 2012. Throughout his questioning of Wilson it was clearly shown that the former detective was not an “expert” on what constituted “hate” and that Wilson was solely relying upon only one definition of “hatred” which appeared in the Keegstra case from back in the 1980’s. It was also evident from the former Hate Crime Unit investigator’s statements that after the second complainant had filed his complaint to the BC Hate Crime Team back in May of 2011 Wilson traveled over to Victoria, B.C. to interview the complainant who, during the course of the taped conversation, told Wilson that he’d also been involved in laying an earlier complaint against Topham back in 2007 as a representative of the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada. That earlier Sec. 13(1) complaint on the part of B’nai Brith Canada, fortunately for Topham, was stayed in 2010 pending the outcome of a Constitutional challenge to the Canadian Human Rights Act (where the legislation existed); one that ultimately resulted in the repeal of Sec. 13(1) in June of 2012.

In the course of their interview the complainant told Wilson that his organization, the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada, didn’t think they had any evidence strong enough to gain a conviction under Sec. 319(2) of the Criminal Code of Canada until Topham published his “book” Israel Must Perish! on his website May 28th, 2011. The complainant, upon reading what was in actuality a satire that Topham had written of the actual book Germany Must Perish! concluded that he now had sufficient evidence to prove to a court of law that Topham was proposing the total annihilation of the Jewish population and would therefore qualify as a candidate for a Sec. 319(2) “Hate Propaganda” complaint with the BC Hate Crime Team.

Under cross examination Defence attorney Johnson suggested to Wilson that it wasn’t until the complainant had told him about the “book” that he made his decision to charge Topham.

Topham’s attorney also brought forth evidence clearly showing Wilson to have abused his police powers during the course of his investigation when he wrote a personal letter to Topham’s Internet Service Provider (ISP) Netfirms.ca back on November 21, 2012 informing them that Topham had been charged on November 5, 2012 with a Sec. 319(2) CCC offence of “Wilfully Promoting Hatred”. Defence pointed out to the court that Wilson had taken it upon himself to go to Netfirms.ca, read through their policy and then suggested to the company that Topham’s Sec. 319(2) criminal charge “may in fact contravene” said policy under section 4(b)(i). The result of Wilson’s letter to Netfirms.ca was that the ISP wrote to Topham the same day issuing what was basically an ultimatum stating, “We have been advised by a visitor to your web site radicalpress.com that such web site contains content that is alleged to be untrue, offensive, slanderous, harassing or controversial in nature.

Accordingly, please remove such content within 48 hours of this notice. Failure to delete such content within such period will result in termination of your website.” It was signed by “Zach P Corporate Support”.

Given such short notice and not having the technical expertise to shift his website to a new (and more secure) server in the USA Topham had to rely upon an associate of his who also wasn’t fully proficient in downloading and uploading websites. The end result was that all the content on Topham’s website prior to November 21, 2012 ended up infected with computer code script that required hundreds of hours of labour to correct and to this day still hasn’t been fully repaired.

Defence also pointed out to the court that when Wilson wrote to Netfirms.ca on November 21, 2012 there had already been one attempt on the part of Crown to have Topham’s bail conditions changed so that he wouldn’t be able to carry on publishing until after the trial (should he be found not guilty). That attempt had failed and Crown was attempting a second time to change his conditions and a hearing on Crown’s application had already been set for January 2, 2013 but Wilson disregarded the court and proceeded on his own to try and remove RadicalPress.com before that date. Because of these independent actions on the part of former Det. Wilson, Defence suggested to the court that Wilson had acted in an extra-judicial manner and in doing so had attempted to circumvent whatever decision the court may have come to regarding Topham’s bail conditions (Crown’s application was unsuccessful). In other words Wilson had acted as judge and jury and concluded, prior to Crown’s application being heard, that Topham was guilty of the crime before having been tried. In other words, according to Defence counsel Johnson, Wilson’s testimony could not be taken seriously and ought to be disregarded by the jury.

Crown Expert Witness Len Rudner

The first week’s proceedings concluded Friday, October 30th, 2015 with Crown’s Expert Witness, Mr. Len Rudner, former Director of the Canadian Jewish Congress, completing his testimony. Week two commenced with Defence attorney Barclay Johnson’s cross examination of Mr. Rudner testimony.

Len Rudner copy

As noted in the first report the focus of Crown’s evidence was contained in four large binders of which Binder #1 and #2 composed the complete texts of the following online books posted on RadicalPress.com:

1. Germany Must Perish! by Theodore N. Kaufmann
2. Israel Must Perish! (erroneously labeled by Wilson and Crown as a “book” rather than a satirical article)
3. The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion
4. The Biological Jew by Eustice Mullins
5. The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today by Elizabeth Dilling

Binder #2 was the complete text (580 pages) of Douglas Reed’s historic analysis of political Zionism The Controversy of Zion. Binders #3 and #4 were basically screen shots of all of Topham’s monthly postings on his website which Wilson had “captured” during the course of the Hate Crime Team’s investigation once the initial complaint was laid against Topham and his website on April 28th, 2011. As well, a number of Topham’s personal writings contained in the sidebar on the home page under the heading Arthur’s Court were also included.

Over the course of Len Rudner’s testimony Crown’s Prosecuting Attorney Jennifer Johnston led Rudner through all of the above online books and portions of the articles, most of which contained Topham’s “Editor’s Note” prefaces. It was mainly these prefaces to other writer’s work that Crown zeroed in on as they apparently were having great difficulty in finding anything in Topham’s own personal articles on the site that they felt would meet the stringent standards that the law required in order to prove, “beyond a reasonable doubt” that Topham was “wilfully” promoting hatred toward “people of Jewish ethnicity or religion”.

Fortunately, for the defence, Crown’s Expert Witness Len Rudner provided the court with some extremely revealing evidence while under cross examination which, ultimately, led to some damning conclusions.

Given that Rudner had told the court that during the period of his tenure as a Director for the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC), which spanned the years in which Mr. Topham had been harassed and dragged through the whole of the Canadian Human Rights Commission Sec. 13(1) complaint process from 2007 until 2012, Defence counsel Johnson began questioning Rudner on statements he’d made under oath regarding his personal involvement in the laying of these Sec. 13(1) “hate crime” charges against Canadian citizens. What Rudner told the court, was most revealing and in some instances totally unexpected. As it turned out, in his capacity as a director of this foreign Israeli lobbyist organization, Rudner stated that as far back as 2007 he had been personally involved in an attempt on the part of the CJC to file a Sec. 319(2) “hate” complaint against Arthur Topham and his website RadicalPress.com with the British Columbia Hate Crimes Team (BCHCT). This was the very same RCMP unit that on May 16th, 2012 arrested Topham and charged him under the same Sec. 319(2) criminal code section. Rudner’s statements were corroborated by the evident from Crown’s disclosure which contained the following document shown below.

BCHCTFILE 2007-23814

While the document itself hadn’t indicated who, in particular, was responsible for filing the complaint, Rudner having sworn that he was personally involved in drafting a number of such complaints, admitted to having signed off on that one as well.

During the course of his testimony before the court Rudner also admitted to having had contact with Topham’s former Internet Service Provider (ISP) MagNet.com (now defunct) back as far as 2005 wherein he had complained to said company that Topham was publishing “anti-Semitic” materials on his website RadicalPress.com. He admitted under oath that at the time he complained to the ISP he realized that it wouldn’t necessarily guarantee that Topham’s site would be removed from the Internet but that it would at least be an “inconvenience” for Topham! What Rudner and the court, including Defence attorney Barclay Johnson, didn’t realize was that the complaint by the CJC to Topham’s then ISP resulted in Topham losing all of the contents of his website, including a long and lively forum, that dated back to and included the period from 1999 to 2005 and constituted a valuable historic record of a section of history that has since dominated much of the narrative concerning the nascent period of the 21st Century and its reaction to the defining event now known as 911. At the time of the loss Topham had a strong suspicion that the person or persons responsible for filing the complaint to his ISP were most likely connected to either the Canadian Jewish Congress or B’nai Brith Canada (both of whom are admitted lobbyists for the foreign state of Israel), but his then server refused to divulge who had registered the complaint and had only given Topham 48 hours to find a new server. Now the truth regarding that premeditated event finally came to light ten years after the fact.

Given Rudner’s direct testimony that he had personally been involved in two previous attempts to have Topham’s website taken down, Defence attorney Barclay Johnson then questioned Rudner regarding the credentials used in determining his suitability to appear as an “Expert Witness” on behalf of the Crown. Johnson pointed out to the court that in order to qualify for such an esteemed position within the Canadian court system one had to be seen as impartial and unbiased and neutral in order for their “Expert” testimony to be considered credible. He then punctuated this scathing indictment of Rudner’s disingenuousness and confession of complicity by stating that Rudner had, in fact, “a horse in the race” all along and that his admission of these facts could only serve to discredit the worth of all of his testimony in the case before the court.

When Rudner attempted to justify his clandestine attempts to take down Topham’s website Johnson’s response was to suggest that it was nothing but “pure sophistry”.

Defence Expert Witness Gilad Atzmon

GILAD&BARCLAY

Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born writer, musician, and political commentator who has written extensively about global politics, and specifically the geopolitical role of the State of Israel. Atzmon is critical of the Israeli government and its approach to other countries in the Middle East. He moved to England in 1994 and became a British citizen in 2002.

Mr. Atzmon had agreed to take the stand on behalf of Arthur Topham and testify as to why he felt that the charge of “hatred toward the Jews” was inappropriate and his decision to do so was based upon his strongly held conviction that the vast majority of criticism being directed toward the Jews was in fact political in nature rather than personal or aimed specifically at Jews based upon either their religion or their ethnicity.

While the Crown had made a big display before the court of the fact that their Expert Witness Len Rudner was being paid $195.00 an hour to appear to testify when Mr. Atzmon appeared on the morning of November 3, 2015 Defence Barclay Johnson pointed out to the jury that Atzmon had volunteered his expertise without pay and that only his airfare and hotel accommodations and food were being covered by Topham’s defence fund.

After much to do about having his status as an Expert Witness accepted by Justice Bruce Butler when Gilad Atzmon stepped up to the podium and began to speak it immediately became apparent to the court that here was an Expert Witness to be reckoned with. Being an internationally recognized lecturer and in possession of the academic credentials to back up his philosophical approach to the issues being discussed in the courtroom, Mr. Atzmon’s quickly took control of the narrative and over the remainder of his testimony spoke with an unabashed air of certainty and conviction. Unlike Rudner whose quiet, monotone presentation lacked any overt sense of passion in what he was saying, Gilad’s outspoken oratory coupled with his obvious depth of knowledge concerning what he talked about left little doubt in the minds of anyone in the courtroom that here was a man of scholarly quality who unquestionably knew his subject.

Defence counsel Barclay Johnson then led Atzmon through the various online publications that were the subject of Crown’s evidence and Atzmon framed each book and quotation cited within his own analysis of the overall question concerning the Jewish Question and what Atzmon referred to as “Jewish Identity” politics. He went on to explain by means of visual aids (a graphic of a triangle with the three points headed by “Religion”, “Ethnicity” and “Identity or Jewish-ness”), all of which formed the basis of his thesis as contained in his internationally renowned book, The Wandering Who? which has been a best seller since it first came out in 2011.

Of particular note were Atzmon’s comments on the controversial satire which Topham had written in response to his reading of the actual book titled Germany Must Perish! by Theodore N. Kaufmann which Topham then satirically titled  Israel Must Perish! This was the already noted article on Topham’s website that the complainant in the case told former Det. Terry Wilson of the BC Hate Crime Team was sufficient evidence that Topham was promoting the total genocide of the whole of the Jewish population. When Gilad Atzmon addressed the issue he was adamant in his appraisal of the satire stating that it was an exceptionally important contribution to the overall discussion of Jewish identity in that it basically represented a mirror image of what Kaufmann’s book had said and that this mirror was now being held up before the Jewish people and in particular the Zionist state of Israel as a reminder for them to reflect upon their own actions and behaviour in todays political setting. He made reference to the plight of the Palestinians in his comments but Crown was quick to object (and Justice Butler was also quick to agree with Crown) that Atzmon wasn’t an expert on the Palestinian issue and therefore his testimony in that regard should be disregarded.

As Atzmon stated in his book, “As far as self-perception is concerned, those who call themselves Jews could be divided into three main categories:

1. Those who follow Judaism.
2. Those who regard themselves as human beings that happen to be of Jewish origin.
3. Those who put their Jewish-ness over and above all of their other traits.

Crown’s Cross Examination of Gilad Atzmon

Crown Prosecutor Jennifer Johnson commenced her cross examination of Expert Witness Gilad Atzmon at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 4th and it resumed the next morning of November 5th. It was basically on the second day of cross examination that the Prosecutor began her laborious efforts to try and get Atzmon to agree to the Crown’s position with respect to the term “Hatred” and also to many of the quotations cited throughout the trial that Crown felt showed evidence of Topham’s wilful promotion of hatred toward the Jews in general. Suffice it to say that every attempt at twisting Gilad’s words to conform to Crown’s preconceived mould of what “hatred” meant was met with not only dismissal but further testimony on Atzmon’s part as to what he actually was saying. This process continued on throughout his cross examination and it would not be unfair to say that the following exchange was typical of Crown’s approach and Gilad’s reaction:

Crown: Mr. Atzmon, I’m sure that you would agree that ….

Gilad Atzmon: No.

The jury and members of the public sitting in the gallery witnessed this scenario occurring over and over and the end result was that Crown was unable to refute any of Atzmon’s testimony nor discredit his presentation in any way.

Defence’s Summation to the Jury

Friday, November 6, 2015 was originally the final day scheduled for R v Roy Arthur Topham. But like most things the numerous delays throughout the past two week due to Crown’s own actions (which will be touched on at the end of this report) the only thing that happened on this day was that Defence Attorney Barclay Johnson was able to (after numerous interruptions by Crown and Justice Butler) finally sum up before the jury his arguments as to why they should find the defendant not guilty. That summation, in itself, was prolonged by the presiding Justice so that it wasn’t until 2:30 p.m. that Johnson finally was able to speak to the jurors. He ended at precisely 4:00 p.m.

The main thrust by defence was to speak to the jury about Crown’s two witnesses, former Det. Terry Wilson of the BC Hate Crime Team and Crown Expert Witness Len Rudner. Johnson outlined for the jury the many instances of bias displayed by both these two individuals while testifying. In addition to that he also (after much wrangling with Justice Butler) presented to the jury some of Arthur Topham’s writings taken from an article which had been included in Crown’s disclosure. That article, titled KILLING THE HUNDREDTH MONKEY: The Battle for Control and Censorship of Canada’s Internet by B’nai Brith Canada was originally posted on the website back in 2008 and dealt with issues related to the first complaint laid against Topham by B’nai Brith Canada under the former Sec. 13(1) Canadian Human Rights Act in the article were references made to the character of Topham which the defence wanted the jury to hear.

Defence then read out the following to the jury: [please note that the defendant is restricted by his current bail conditions from naming his accuser online and therefore the individual in question is simply referred to as “Mr. Z”]

“I have lived, uninterruptedly, in the province of British Columbia since December of 1956. After leaving high school I attended university (SFU) in 1965 and there obtained a Professional Teaching Certificate. I worked for a short number of years in this capacity both in the public school system and for First Nations school districts, all of which were located in the province of B.C., and taught grades ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 5. I left the profession in 1978 and worked for the Provincial Parks Branch for 8 years where I was a Supervisor and Park Ranger in the Quesnel District of the Cariboo region of the province. After losing that profession to government restructuring in the late 1980’s I returned to teaching for a couple of years and worked for the Nuxalk Education Authority out of Bella Coola, B.C. in 1991 – 1992 where I taught on reserve Grades 2 and 3. From there I returned to Quesnel and worked in a substitute capacity for the local School District (#28) until I resigned in September of 1998. It was also during the year 1998 that I established my publishing business known as The Radical Press. From June of 1998 until June of 2002 I published a monthly, 24-page tabloid called The Radical which sold in retail outlets throughout B.C. and across Canada and by subscription around the world. Due to financial challenges the hard copy edition of the newspaper ceased in June of 2002 and from that date I carried on publishing online with my website known as http://www.radicalpress.com . In 2005, using my lifetime of personal experience in the log building trades and construction industry which I had developed in conjunction with my tenure as a school teacher I formed a carpentry business and have been operating said business up to this point in time. I have lived out in the country for the vast majority of my life, have build my own home, grown my own garden, and maintained a philosophy of independence both in thought and deed. Throughout the course of my life I have fathered four children and now, along with my dear wife of thirty years, also have been blessed with seven grandchildren.

In many respects my life has been an open book to the community in which I have resided since 1970. I began writing letters to the local Quesnel newspaper known as The Cariboo Observer, newsroom@quesnelobserver.com beginning in 1976 and have steadily contributed to that publication over the ensuing years both as a regular columnist and an inveterate contributor on matters of public concern. While I would describe myself as a very controversial writer (and most, if not all of my readers would agree) I nonetheless need to stress the fact that throughout all the years of presenting my ideas to the general public on a number of issues ranging from politics to religion to social justice and environmental issues, I have never made any racist, hate-filled remarks against any person of Jewish or any other religious or ethic grouping. All this I state with respect to the present allegations made against me by Mr. Z and the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada; charges that they would fain convey to the public that insinuate I am a person who promotes hatred toward others, in this case Jews. The records of my writings would not, I suggest, indicate this to be the case….

There is one last, missing factor in this “hate” equation which Mr. Z and the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada have accused me of which needs to be mentioned. I feel it poignantly illustrates the absurdity of what is going on with respect to the danger of abuse inherent in such laws as Sec. 13(1) when exploited for partisan purposes by people and organizations such as Mr. Z and the League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith. It also epitomizes the spuriousness of all the allegations and contentions which they have used in their attempt to harass and intimidate me by falsely and publicly accusing me of the crime of promoting “ongoing hatred affecting persons identifiable as Jews and/or as citizens of Israel.” I now present this final factor to you Ms. Kozak and to the CHRC Tribunal as the culmination of my testimony to the frivolous and vexatious nature of these charges. For me to either admit to or accept that I am promoting hatred toward Jews would be tantamount to saying that I hate, rather than love and cherish beyond description, the one person in my life who has been wife and friend and companion to me over the last thirty years. For she too is Jewish.”

Final observations on Crown’s handling of evidence

Given that the total cost to Canadian taxpayers to proceed with this trial is likely over one million dollars throughout the duration of this two week trial the court has been witness to endless problems dealing with Crown’s disclosure materials. Given the fact that Crown has now had over three and half years to put together the evidence in a format that would easily facilitate the normal reading habits of the jurors and Defence counsel what we have witnessed throughout the trial is a disgrace to the supreme court system in British Columbia.

From the onset of the case (beginning in May of 20120), defence had to fight tooth and nail to get disclosure from Crown and to try and have Crown particularize the evidence so it was clearly evident what would be used in the actual trial. Instead Crown insisted that the case was an “ongoing investigation” and therefore they couldn’t provide the full disclosure until final weeks preceding trial. When they did send Defence counsel their Disclosure much of it was unreadable. Defence had to redo pages and pages of Crown evidence in order that it could be read in court, not only by defence but also by the jurors who would be expected to follow along in their own Binders. This aspect of the trial consumed hours of time and even after the trial was well underway it became blatantly obvious that the last two binders would have to be republished so the jury might have a readable copy to refer to. Those final two binders didn’t enter into the court until the morning of Friday, November 6, 2015!

Typical of the quality of the documents is the image below taken from one page of KILLING THE HUNDREDTH MONKEY: The Battle for Control and Censorship of Canada’s Internet by B’nai Brith Canada It would not be a stretch of the imagination to conceive of the jurors being each given a magnifying glass in order to try and read the evidence. Given that it cost the taxpayers an additional $2000.00 to have them reprinted twelve magnifying glasses might have been a more cost effective measure.

Still to come

Monday, November 9, 2015 will see Crown present its summation to the jury. On Friday Justice Butler asked the jury if they would be ready to have him charge them on Tuesday morning the 10th of November. He told them that if he charged them on Tuesday that in the event they couldn’t come to a decision by the end of the day that they would have to remain sequestered through to November 11th which is Canada’s Remembrance Day federal holiday. The jury went out and discussed this and returned to tell Justice Butler that they would prefer to be charged on the 10th. That meant they didn’t think it would take more than one day to make their minds up.

As it now stands Tuesday, November 10th, 2015 will conclude the trial and a verdict will be handed down on that day. Stay tuned folks!

THE TAKFIRI GOY GOLEM: ISIS, JABHAT AL-NUSRA, THEIR “ISRAELI” MASTERS AND THE REPACKAGED ZIONIST WAR ON ISLAM

by Jonathan Azaziah (Mouqawamah Music EXCLUSIVE)

Apart from the nauseating, reprehensible and oft-repeated “‘Israel’ has a right to exist” meme, it is indubitably certain that there is no propaganda buzz-phrase heard quite as frequently from the duplicitous yaps of vile, yellowbelly liberals as “blowback terrorism”. The “blowback terrorism” theory suggests that terrorists – in this particular instance, those of the Takfiri variety currently represented by the demented likes of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, along with Al-Qaeda before them – are birthed via the womb of asinine Western foreign policy. However, as Mouqawamah Music Managing Editor Assad al-Liftawi so aptly noted (1), the Takfiris aren’t mere “blowback” from Western – and “Israeli” – foreign policy, they *are* Western-“Israeli”-GCC-Turkish foreign policy.

Essentially, what the liberals, in all of their glorious, stomach-churning cowardice, would have their constituencies believe is that Takfiri terror groups like ISIS appear out of nowhere in the wake of haphazardly planned and foolishly executed American and European intervention in the Arab and Islamic worlds. It is a theory that they cling to for dear life not only because the truth is far darker, far more sinister and far more disturbing than they would care to admit, but also due to their own criminal complicity in the destructive conspiracy tearing apart Syria and Iraq. But despite their most studious efforts to ensure that “mum’s the word” on where ISIS and its ideological counterparts *actually* come from, the liberals, who are Zionist-Imperialist Hegemony’s most useful and deceptive gatekeepers, have failed in their task.

Off Comes The Mask of Zion: Mainstream Media Reluctantly Exposes The Takfiris’ Roots

Due to the blatant nature of its illegal and malevolent meddling in the affairs of resistant, sovereign nation-states in the Maghreb and Mashreq, the US-“Israeli” Empire couldn’t keep the proverbial gloves on its dirty hands for long, and even the Jewish-Zionist-dominated mainstream media picked up stories on the true nature behind ISIS in particular and the roots of Takfiri terrorism more broadly speaking, despite its obvious intentions to provide as much as spin and false context as possible. The Sulzberger-family-owned New York Times admitted that the CIA is running guns to rebel forces from Turkey (2), and more importantly, released a mega-bombshell when it noted that there isn’t a secular fighting force in Syria to speak of (3). Also in the pages of the NYT, US President Obama – referred to adoringly by the Zionist Power Configuration’s Chicago division as America’s first Jewish president (4) – made it clear that arming “moderate” rebels was nothing but a fantasy (5). Obama’s deputy, Joe “I Am A Zionist (6)” Biden, blew the whistle on the Empire’s staunch allies in Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates for their pernicious roles in incubating and facilitating the spread of Takfiri fanatics across Bilad al-Sham (7).

Another bombshell was dropped by neocon-mouthpiece The Washington Post, which revealed in a devastating story that a gargantuan contingent of fighters operating under the fictitious “Free ‘Syrian’ Army (FSA)” banner who were trained by imperialist states went off and joined ISIS or Jabhat al-Nusra once their Western-sponsored training sessions were completed (8).  General John Allen, the American regime’s envoy to the recently created “anti-ISIS” international coalition, buried the FSA/“secular” rebel myth further in his confirmation of frequent Nusra-FSA battlefield coordination (9). Reports continue popping up in the mainstream press of US humanitarian aid and other forms of supplies and equipment reaching ISIS, most recently in The Daily Beast (10), a most deplorable Zionist rag. Bottom line is, if “moderate” rebels don’t exist and the FSA was nothing but a media concoction, whom were the United States and its regional and international allies arming? Takfiris, plain and simple; murderous, fanatical Takfiris, many of whom were and are literally mentally unstable (11).

And yet, even the tip of the iceberg remains unscathed. The illegitimate, usurping Zionist entity’s hands, which have been present from the very beginning of the war on Syria in the shadows, going all the way back to 2004 when Mossad and the Zionist-run, Zionist-founded National Endowment For Democracy (NED) began cultivating Syrian opposition groups (12), have now become publically exposed as well, on more fronts than were previously known. The “Israelis” have been intimately involved in training the rebels in Jordan (13). Moreover, as confirmed by former FSA “general” and Jewish “state” quisling Salim Idris, “many, many” Mossad agents are “very active” in Syria (14), accumulating all sorts of intelligence for their plots, including spreading fearmongering amongst the Syrian Druze community in Sweida about the collapse of the Damascus government, solely to generate their support for the potential partition of a southern chunk of Syria (15). Outspoken Likudnik and the usurping Jewish regime’s former ambassador to the US Michael Oren openly declared last year that “Israel” prefers Al-Qaeda to be in power over the Hizbullah-Iran-aligned Syria of Dr. Bashar al-Assad (16), a stance which “Israeli” Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz reiterated this week in the NYT by declaring that the Islamic Republic of Iran is a greater threat than ISIS (17).

The plot thickens still. Veteran Syrian “dissident” – i.e. US-Zionist tool – and founding member of the “Syrian” National Coalition/Council (SNC) Kamal al-Labwani, in an act of treason which cannot be more depraved, offered to give the illegally occupied Golan Heights to the Jewish supremacist regime in exchange for its implementation of a no-fly zone over Syria (18). Sharif as-Safouri, the commander of the Free Syrian Army’s Al-Haramein Battalion, in a Youtube video uploaded this past summer, revealed that he has met with Zionist entity’s intelligence services, obtained weaponry from them and broke down the process of transferring wounded terrorists to IOF field hospitals (19).

Indeed, even the UN has noted that at the very least, dozens of Takfiri terrorists have been treated in the hospitals of the Zionist occupation army (20), with the true numbers likely expected to be in the hundreds, as every week “Israeli” news channels document operations conducted in coordination between “Syrian” oppositionists and IOF (21). War criminal and prime minister of the usurping Jewish entity Benjamin Netanyahu visited one of these advanced field hospitals to consort with its Takfiri patients and governing IOF generals (22), in a true showing of just how much these rebels mean to “Israel”, for the only time the leader of a nation – or in this case, a demonic supremacist entity – visits a battlefield is to boost the morale of the men fighting for his cause, which, in this case, is Zionism.  These hospitals are a hotbed of disgusting Zionist apologia and Takfirism, particularly the Ziv Medical Center in occupied Safad, where rebels openly bash Hizbullah, Iran and Russia and beg Netanyahu to bomb Syria (23).

Beyond the medical treatment, political support and intelligence though, “Israel” is providing arms to the Takfiri rebels in Syria and on top of an undeclared truce that it has with Jabhat al-Nusra (24), its warplanes are serving as Jabhat al-Nusra’s air force in the face of the Syrian Arab Army (25). Amos Yadlin, the former director of Aman and infamously shady intelligence operator who gleefully admitted to the Zionist entity assassinating legendary Hizbullah commander Hajj Imad Mughniyeh and benefitting from Rafik Hariri’s killing (26),  brazenly declared in his typically arrogant tone that, “ISIS is not a significant threat to ‘Israel’ in the near future, and in an odd sense, it even provides some strategic opportunities for ‘Israel (27).”

Hence why the criminal Talmudic maniacs occupying Palestine are providing foodstuffs to the Iraqi division of ISIS (28), as well as giving it advanced weapons (29), and their Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency is gladly allowing Palestinians from the 1948 lands to join its ranks, as this not only allows “Israel” to have a direct role in the recruitment process of ISIS, but it also will prevent those who depart from returning to Palestine, a policy suggested by Jewish occupation regime Tourism Minister Uzi Landau (30). Thus, two strategic goals of the Zionist dragon are fulfilled: its proxy, ISIS, is routinely injected with new Palestinian recruits – which bestows upon the Takfiri terrorist outfit an aura of credibility in the eyes of woefully ignorant Muslims worldwide as it is comprised of persons from the oppressed Palestinian people – and it removes more and more “demographic threats” from the land it continues to colonize and decay with its satanic existence, from the River to the Sea.

With that said, it seriously could not be clearer that ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and other Takfiri gangs, trained by NATO (31) and armed by the Jewish supremacist entity, are not the ragtag “moujahideen” that they try to sell themselves as to the unsuspecting Muslim youth across the globe; they are tools of Zio-Imperialism. And with at least five Britons a week leaving to join ISIS (32) and a French family of eleven departing only two weeks ago to join the Takfiris in Syria (33), it’s also clear that Western regimes aren’t engaging in any efforts whatsoever to curtail pro-ISIS adventurism, despite their boisterous claims to the contrary. Why? Because, to end where we began, and as the facts show, Takfiri terrorism isn’t “blowback” but the very instrument which “Israel”, the West and their marionettes in the region are using to impose their hegemony on states that refuse to bow to Zionist diktat.

Zionist-Takfiri Symbiosis: P2OG, The 2010 Baghdad Cathedral Massacre, SITE, Fake Beheadings and Mossad

While every piece of aforementioned evidence provides a damning portrayal of the Takfiris’ collaborationist identity, one must dig a bit further back in recent history to understand who they are in totality. Any analysis of Takfiri terrorism throughout the Maghreb and Mashreq, most prominently in Iraq, which fails to mention the Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group, better known by its acronym P2OG, is the very embodiment of incompleteness. Largely unknown by most, but tremendously powerful and absolutely essential to the mayhem and horror which have befallen the Arab and Islamic worlds, P2OG, is, in a word, the grandsire of ISIS.

Founded in 2002 by the Defense Science Board, which was run out of the office of Donald Rumsfeld – the shabbos goy front man for the Jewish neocon cabal that controlled the Bush administration, as well as the Jewish-Zionist billionaires Stephen Feinberg and Michael Steinhardt’s mega-corporation Cerberus Global Investments, which was responsible for setting up military bases and camps across then-occupied Iraq (34) – and Iraq War architect and “Full Spectrum Dominance” designer Paul Wolfowitz, P2OG overtly advocated using assassinations, sabotage and deception to stoke the Iraqi people into full-blown civil war. The shadowy, murderous intelligence agency, which worked, and continues to work side-by-side with the evil “Israeli” regime’s Mossad, was the brainchild of Zionist and PNAC (Project For A New American Century) member William J. Schneider Jr., who launched an all-out media blitz to justify the legitimacy and legality of P2OG (35), despite it being the very antithesis of both.

Simply put, P2OG, which remains fully operational and active, was and is creating Takfiri terrorism – and Takfiri terrorists – as a means of justifying increased Western-“Israeli” military-intelligence activity in the region. Without P2OG, the growth of Al-Qaeda in Iraq and like-similar groups would have been mute.  One of the most daring and murderous operations that emerged out of the P2OG-Mossad nexus was the Sayedat al-Najat Cathedral massacre that left almost 60 Iraqis murdered in the mixed Sunni-Shi’a-Christian Karada district of Baghdad on October 31st, 2010. While the mass media reported the atrocity as the handiwork of ISIS’s precursor, the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), a deeper investigation revealed that at the time, ISI wasn’t even operationally functional let alone capable of a special-ops-style assault such as this, and, as confirmed by a US Brigadier General, its alleged leader, Omar al-Baghdadi, was nothing but an invention. What really happened was an intricate Mossad operation, carried out with all of the genocidal “Tel Aviv” regime’s favorite toys, from car bombs to fake passports. As Hizbullah pointed out in the aftermath of the horror, the attack perfectly fit the recurring pattern of Zionism’s regional quest for destabilization and balkanization as well as the age-old “Israeli” plot to foment division between Muslims and Christians (36).

Although no analyst could have picked up on this at the time, four years later, it has also become luminously elucidated that the Sayedat al-Najat Cathedral massacre was designed to plant the ISI/ISIS seed of terror into the minds of the sheepish global masses, to lay the groundwork for its emergence as the most fearsome, most efficient Takfiri terrorist organization ever. However, now, like then, the fate of ISIS is not merely a link to the Zionist entity’s intelligence apparatuses but a front for them. The connection of the Sayedat al-Najat Cathedral massacre to current events is staggering. It was none other than SITE Intelligence Group – run by Rita Katz, an ex-IOF officer, Jewish supremacist fanatic, loathsome Islamophobe, daughter of an “Israeli” spy executed in Iraq and a person who has close ties to the Mossad via her close working relationship with Mossad agent Ben Venzke’s Intel Center – that “broke the story” on the October 31st, 2010 attack in Baghdad’s Karada (36), and it is SITE Intelligence Group once more that has “uncovered” the ISIS beheading videos today (37) which are serving as the false flag pretexts for America’s latest Zionist-induced adventure in the Maghreb and Mashreq. SITE and Intel Center have untouched hegemony over the information flow and sources used by mainstream media regarding “Islamic extremism”, and thus, whenever the mainstream media publishes anything pertaining to this subject matter, it is regurgitating the hasbara of Mossad.

If the SITE connection wasn’t shocking enough, further credence is granted to the factually sound theory of the ISIS beheading videos of James Foley and Steven Sotloff being pretexts for Anglo-Zionist intervention in Iraq and Syria when it is considered that the videos were quite possibly staged. British forensic experts believe that the Foley video is a fraud, citing “camera trickery and slick post-production techniques” as indications of this truth (38), and Al-Jazeera, the Zionist-founded Qatari media giant that has churned out propagandistic report after propagandistic report against Syria from jump street (39), also published a story suggesting the Foley and Sotloff videos were fakes, prior to taking the report down after the uproar it caused (40).

Steven Sotloff’s case is the fishier of the two, one of the utmost bizarreness really, as he wasn’t just American but also “Israeli”, which begs the question: what exactly was he doing in Syria? Moreover, Sotloff’s description as a “journalist” strongly appears to be a cover, as he earned his degree from the Mossad-linked Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya (41). Besides, despite “Israeli” and Jewish community media outlets ascribing the efforts to “friends and family”, who else but the Mossad could have carried out a 150-man operation to scrub Sotloff’s Jewish roots and “Israeli” connections from the web (42)? Due to all of the Zionist monsters’ noted connections to ISIS on the intelligence, political, military and logistical levels, is it possible that Sotloff’s beheading video was a high-level PSYOP that Sotloff himself was engaged in, to further International Jewry’s hegemonic agenda? With so much at stake in the region, the answer is a resounding “yes!”

While some ISIS apologists and sympathizers attempt to whitewash the Takfiri terrorist organization as being hostile to mainstream media, saying the group relies on its own media advisers to deliver its message to the world at large (43), the reality is the polar opposite, and the Takfiri gang’s connections to SITE, the Intel Center, Mossad and P2OG, going back nearly a decade, confirm this as an undeniable truism. Like a twisted, more parasitic version of symbiosis, ISIS doesn’t exist without Zionist support. Indeed, the relationship between “Israel” and ISIS is most comparable to the shark and the remora… the latter latches on to the former for scraps, while the former relies on the latter to do its dirty work and clean up its mess.

Oded Yinon, The Yeor Plan and Operation Oranim Reincarnated: Divide, Conquer and Steal The Water

Seeing ISIS and gaggles of other Takfiri groups rampage through Bilad al-Sham and Bilad al-Rafidayn, one cannot help but feel like the Jewish supremacist regime’s plan to break up the entire Arab-Islamic world into smaller, weaker, ethno-religious statelets and then take control over the region’s oil, gas and most especially water resources, written in 1982 by “Israeli” foreign policy advisor Oded Yinon and entitled “A Strategy For ‘Israel’ In The 1980s” (44), is being executed in real time. And that’s because it is. Unable to militarily impose its hegemony on the Arab-Islamic world directly, the Zionist entity, which strives to rule over a region which stretches from Egypt’s Nile to Iraq’s Euphrates in its very own Jewish Imperium, sought a different route, this time via proxy.

As Hizbullah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah eloquently pointed out in a July 2012 speech, since the Lebanese Islamic Resistance achieved victory over “Israel” in the 2006 July War with Syrian weapons and logistics, the usurping Halakhic regime has been working on a new military strategy to destroy the Syrian Arab Army (45), and by definition of their roles in the Resistance Axis, Hizbullah and Iran. ISIS is that new strategy. In the wake of Al-Naksa, after “Israel” conquered the rest of Palestine, Egypt’s Sinai and Syria’s Golan Heights (Al-Jaulan), Zionist entity General Aaron Yariv launched a study into how to establish a zone of “hydraulic security” which would put all of Lebanon and Syria’s water resources under the absolute control of “Tel Aviv”. During the genocidal Jewish entity’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon, now deceased war criminal Ariel Sharon launched an operation within an operation, called “Oranim”, to bring this “hydraulic security” zone to fruition and destroy Syria militarily in the process. “Oranim” was a failure however, as the Syrian Arab Army resisted and derailed the scheme (46).

This failure did not put an end to the Zionists’ dreams though. Quite to the contrary. The Yinon Plan and Oranim remain very much at the forefront of the illegitimate Jewish entity’s political and strategic planning, it plainly realized that the implementation of each of these stratagems would be impossible without a shift in battlefield tactics.

Reflecting this are the highly publicized ISIS takeovers and attacks on waterways and dams in both Iraq and Syria, which aren’t being carried out for the Takfiri terrorist group’s own benefit, but for their Judaic masters’ century-old objectives. The Jewish “state” is in desperate need of water as its filthy settlers are either consuming and consuming until lands are bled dry, or polluting springs and wells to the point of no return. There is another “Tel Aviv” plot, the Yeor Plan, concocted in 1974 to see Nile water diverted from Egypt’s northern Sinai region through tunnels underneath the Suez Canal and ultimately, through the illegally besieged Gaza Strip into al-Naqab, referred to by occupying “Israeli” Jews as the “Negev”. The mafia-esque Talmudic enclave has waged water wars against Egypt, Sudan and Libya in the name of this plan (47), and now, using ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and their Takfiri brethren as shock troops, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq can be added to the Yeor-Yinon-Oranim 2.0 file as well.

In Jewish folklore, the Golem is a creature made of clay and brought to life through Kabbalistic rituals and Hebrew incantations. The purpose of the creature is to take orders from its rabbinical creators, defend Jews and protect the interests of Jews. Can it be argued, really, that the Takfiris aren’t such creatures? They owe their very existence to the Jewish “state” and its dangerous, Gentile-hating, rabbinically-driven, supremacist intelligence services, and every action that they embroil themselves in, from one end of the region to the other, is for the benefit of “Israel”. And just like the Golem of Jewish folklore, if Zionism was to act as a rabbi ending his spell over his clay puppet and pull its support from the Takfiris, they would crumble and fade away into nothingness. ISIS should change its name to IGGSIS: “Israel’s” Goy Golem in Iraq and Syria.

Conclusion: Netanyahu, Al-Qaeda’s Stale Brand Name, GWOT’s Rejuvenation and Wahhabi-Takfirism’s Jewish Character

The 2001 September 11th terrorist attacks, Jewish-Zionist-orchestrated from soup to nuts, from the operation itself to the elephantine benefits that the “Israeli” regime reaped in its aftermath (48), cannot be comprehended without the acknowledgment that they were, first and foremost, a declaration of war on Islam. Hostility towards Islam is something that is embedded in the very core of Judaism – and obviously, Zionism, which is Judaism manifested geopolitically – and it extends outwards to every fiber of its ideological makeup. Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), the Holy Prophet of Islam, is viewed by the rabbinate as a “madman (49).” Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) and Prophet Jesus the Messiah (A.S.) have been linked together in degradation by Zohar III 282a of the Kabbalah, which refers to them as “dead dogs” who are buried in the realm of demons with worms, donkeys, dirt and vermin all around them (50). Additionally, the rabbinate views the Ishmaelite-Amalekite nation, the Arabs (and the Muslim Ummah as a whole, 250 million of which are Arabs), as its primary enemy. Therefore, simply by being an Arab, Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), by rabbinical edict, is the “spawn of Satan (51).”

The origins of the hatred for Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) began with a man seemingly omnipresent in Jewish affairs, haNesher haGadol, ‘the great eagle’ Maimonides, who believed the Holy Prophet of Islam to be a “maniac” and penned contempt-filled laws against Muslims which requires the Jew to diminish and destroy them (52). While inserting many escape clauses into his work and presenting a great deal of decoy texts to convince the goyim that he solemnly respected Muslims, the writings of Maimonides reserved only for “the chosen” were nothing short of homicidal towards believers in Islam, with the most poisonous tidbits reserved for Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) himself (53). What is most revealing of Maimonides’ feelings on Islam is that behind the hatred and incitement is an abyssal fear of it, as he swore in his ‘Epistle to Yemen,’ chilling indeed, “Islam is the cruelest and most implacable enemy that the Jewish people have faced in their entire history (54).” Taking this declaration and applying it to the current geopolitical state of affairs, with Maimonides being a rabbinical figure held close to the hearts of all Jews in general and Jewish extremists distinctively, the same Jewish extremists behind the slaughterous PNAC-Zionist wars destroying the Islamic world domino by domino, the convergence of political directives and spiritual motivations is illuminated: Zionism must destroy Islam so the ‘divine’ rabbinate can continue flourishing as global domineers.

And since Islam cannot be destroyed physically, nor can its Book, the Holy Qur’an, be assailed, as ALLAH (SWT) promised to preserve it in the 15th Surah’s 9th Ayah, International Zionism must then tarnish Islam’s image with the most dangerous weapon it has in its “chosenite” arsenal: the mass media, which, since Mossad’s false flag masterpiece on 9/11, has been pumping out piece after piece, via television, print and the internet, depicting Muslims as deranged, barbaric, irrational extremists hellbent on destroying the Western world. It is within this context that “Israeli” Prime Minister and butcher of Gaza Benjamin Netanyahu told a presidential conference in the usurping entity in June 2012 that “militant Islam” wouldn’t be defeated until the end of century (55). The Jewish gangster regime occupying Palestine, and its like-minded coreligionists across the planet, cannot adhere to the warning of their “great sage” Maimonides and wage a 100-year war against Islam if the “enemy” being targeted remains the same. The hasbara will grow stagnant and the minds of the world’s population will become less easier to control.

And with the brand name of Al-Qaeda growing stale in the wake of many of its operatives, i.e. Mossad-CIA-MI6 assets, being neutralized in Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan, occupied Afghanistan and elsewhere — most notably Osama Bin Laden, whose “death” was even more of a sham than the Foley and Sotloff beheading videos – it was time for the Zionists to revitalize their Global War On Terror (GWOT). Enter the fanatics of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, whom breathed new life into GWOT – which would die in an instant without an influx of “Muslims” behaving malevolently to spread propaganda about — and were basically Al-Qaeda on steroids; flashier, glossier, more violent and not hostile to the Jewish supremacist entity even in the slightest.

Instead, these new Takfiri players adhere to the disgustingly sectarian ideological Salafi-Wahhabi tenet of “Fighting nearby apostates is more important than fighting faraway infidels”, and even more despicable, “Shias are more dangerous than Jews (56).” As nonsensical as it is, according to ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, the usurping Zionist disease isn’t responsible for the region’s decay, the Shi’a – and their allies – are, and this is why, in unblemished collusion with the Jewish occupation entity’s designs on the region, the Takfiris are in perpetual attack mode against Hizbullah, Iran, Syria, Iraq and now, with the Zionist-aligned House of Saud sanctioning suicide attacks against the Houthis (57), Yemen too.

This hateful, Zionist-backed ideology spewed and belched by the Takfiris is not in the same universe as Islam however, and it is not just important but existentially critical to make the distinction between the two, for the very linkage of Islam with Wahhabi-Takfirism is a crime against the former and an insult to its inherent purity, truthfulness and righteousness.

What Wahhabi-Takfirism most closely resembles is in fact Judaism. Like Judaism, which rejects the humanity of all other persons as goyim, that is, cattle, while upholding the Jew as “God’s” gift to the universe and which strives to keep the Jew separate from the “inferior” goy, Wahhabi-Takfirism is intolerant to everyone and everything which doesn’t submit to its own perverted line of thinking, be they Sunnis, Shi’a, Sufis, Christians, Yazidis or anyone else. Also like the Jews, who, since the very first prophet they came into contact with, have undermined those prophets, slandered those prophets once they passed away and sinned against those prophets and ALLAH (SWT) by changing the holy revelations and scriptures to better suit their hedonistic, demonic ways, ISIS wants to change the Qur’an as it views some verses as “incorrect” and “distorted (58)”. In another example of blatant opposition to Islam, its love for knowledge and the civilizational advancements that it inspired, ISIS has banned philosophy and chemistry in Raqqa (59).

Within the first issue of “Dabiq”, ISIS’s English propaganda rag, in the section entitled “From Hijrah to Khilafah”, the Takfiri psychopaths make it clear that their strategy is one completely *devoid* of Divine guidance and totally immersed in lawlessness. ISIS says its terrorist fighters tore apart Iraq by unleashing “maximum chaos and targeting apostates of all different backgrounds”. This sounds eerily familiar to the Jews’ toxic Talmud which provides a multitude of justifications for murder, hatred and other debauched acts. In BT Kiddushin 66a, one will find this declaration that puts all of the genocidal Zionist wars of aggression into one hell of a perspective, “The best of the gentiles: kill him (60).” For world Jewry to reach its rabbinically-ordained position as globe holders, hatred for the enemy, the goyim, had to be religiously institutionalized to absolve Jews from wrongdoing in any act of subterfuge that they potentially engage in. This is confirmed by BT Pesahim 113b, “Hating your enemy {goyim} is permitted, even commanded (61).”

All of the Zionist rabbis within IOF draw their authoritative power from this verse, sending their fanatical followers into the olive groves, gardens, valleys and hills of holy Arab-Islamic-Christian land to murder innocents. According to BT Baba Bathra 10b however, there are no Arab (or non-Jewish in general) innocents, “The deeds of Israel are righteous, but the gentiles are capable only of sinning.” No matter how many crimes are committed or malevolence is engaged in by a rabbinic ‘sage’ or his followers, it is just dandy. BT Hagigah 27a confirms none of them will ever go to hell. And if Jewish-Zionist power is resisted, and the goyim fight back, BT Sanhedrin 58b demands vengeance, “A gentile who strikes a Jew deserves death. Striking a Jew is in God’s eyes an assault on the Divine Presence (62).” Is it now grasped why World Zionism hates Hizbullah, Iran, Syria, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the PFLP and others of the same resistant mentality so viscerally?

The frightening similarities between Judaism-Zionism and Wahhabi-Takfirism aren’t as bizarre or ironic as one may think. In fact, there is an uncomplicated, albeit incredibly well-hidden explanation behind the likenesses. As revealed by the Iraqi security services in a damning, earth-shattering intelligence report, Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhab, the founder of Wahhabi-Takfirism, and the House of Saud, his financial benefactors and greatest allies, are all descendants of the Dönmeh, a fanatical Jewish sect originally from Turkey which professed faith in Islam in public while secretly practicing the more mystical, Kabbalistic aspects of Judaism and which was founded by Jewish false messiah Shabbatai Zevi. Abdul-Wahhab’s grandfather was Tjen Shulman, a member of Basra’s Dönmeh-descended Jewish community. The first Saudi monarch, Abdul Aziz ibn Saud, was a descendant of the Jewish merchant Mordechai bin Ibrahim bin Moishe, whose roots were also in Basra (63). Therefore, Wahhabi-Takfirism isn’t just *like* Judaism, it *is* Judaism, and it is disgracefully using Islam as its Mask of Zion.

By granting its Takfiri offspring such an extravagant amount of geopolitical significance, International Jewry has given those resisting its tyranny one more tentacle to be preoccupied with. Unbeknownst to the Zionists however is that those defying its suffocating hegemony over humanity have blown the lid off its little secret and they’re working tirelessly to keep it that way. Takfirism is Judaism-Zionism and vice versa, and no amount of hasbara in the world can reverse what has now been ripped out from under the rug, for the entire globe to see.

Through the exposé of ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and company’s military-intelligence-political connections to “Israel” and NATO, as well as the Takfiris’ historical and ideological Jewish roots, a new era has begun in defense of Islam and in rejection of the US-“Israeli” Empire. With the truth as our weapon, the destruction of IGGSIS, “Israel’s” Goy Golem in Iraq and Syria, will not just deliver a blow to Operation Yeor-Yinon-Oranim 2.0, but it will also bring humans one step closer to coming to grips with the fact that there is no greater threat to the earth than Judeo-Zio-Imperialism, for if Wahhabi-Takfirism is just its spawn, what lies at its Judaic core must be, by virtue of its essence, infinitely more hideous and iniquitous. Don’t get it twisted though, something with such a nature, no matter how powerful it may become – and Organized Jewry is undoubtedly the globe’s most influential geopolitical force – has no other fate but collapse, as darkness must always face the light. May the faithful, disciplined and courageous hasten the sunrise.

Jesus was Palestinian and why it matters by Jehanzeb Dar

Because of modern alarmist reactions to the word “Palestine,” many non-Arabs and non-Muslims take offense when it is argued that Jesus was a Palestinian (peace be upon him).

Jesus’ ethnicity, skin color, and culture often accompany this conversation, but few people are willing to acknowledge the fact he was non-European. A simple stroll down the Christmas aisle will show you the dominant depiction of Jesus: a blonde-haired, blue-eyed, white man.

Islamophobia and anti-Arab propaganda have conditioned us to view Palestinians as nothing but heartless suicide bombers, “terrorists,” and “enemies of freedom and democracy.” Perpetual media vilification and demonization of Palestinians, in contrast to the glorification of Israel, obstructs us from seeing serious issues such as the Palestinian refugee crisis, the victims of Israel’s atrocious three-week assault on Gaza during the winter of 2008-2009, the tens of thousands of homeless Palestinians, and many other struggles that are constantly addressed by human rights activists around the world.

To speak from the perspective of the Palestinians, especially in casual non-Arab and non-Muslim settings, generates controversy because of the alignment between Palestinians and violent stereotypes. So, how could Jesus belong to a group of people that we’re taught to dehumanize?

When I’ve spoken to people about this, I’ve noticed the following responses: “No, Jesus was a Jew,” or “Jesus is not Muslim.” The mistake isn’t a surprise to me, but it certainly is revealing. Being a Palestinian does not mean one is Muslim or vice versa. Prior to the brutal and unjust dispossession of indigenous Palestinians during the creation of the state of Israel, the word “Palestine” was a geographic term applied to Palestinian Muslims, Palestinian Christians, and Palestinian Jews. Although most Palestinians are Muslim today, there is a significant Palestinian Christian minority who are often overlooked, especially by the mainstream Western media.

That dominant narrative not only distorts and misrepresents the Palestinian struggle as a religious conflict between “Muslims and Jews,” but consequentially pushes the lives of Palestinian Christians into “non-existence.” That is, due to the media’s reluctance to report the experiences and stories of Palestinian Christians, it isn’t a surprise when white Americans are astonished by the fact that Palestinian and Arab Christians do, in fact, exist. One could argue that the very existence of Palestinian Christians is threatening, as it disrupts the sweeping and overly-simplistic “Muslim vs. Jew” Zionist narrative. To learn about many Palestinian Christians opposing Israeli military occupation, as well as Jews who oppose the occupation, is to reveal more voices, perspectives, and complexities to a conflict that has been immensely portrayed as one-sided, anti-Palestinian, and anti-Muslim.

Yeshua (Jesus’ real Aramaic name) was born in Bethlehem, a Palestinian city in the West Bank and home to one of the largest Palestinian Christian communities. The Church of the Nativity, one of the oldest churches in the world, marks the birthplace of Jesus and is sacred to both Christians and Muslims. While tourists from the around the world visit the site, they are subject to Israeli checkpoints and roadblocks. The Israeli construction of the West Bank barrier also severely restricts travel for local Palestinians. In April of 2010, Israeli authorities barred Palestinian Christians from entering Jerusalem and visiting the Church of Holy Sepulchre during Easter. Yosef Zabaneh, a Palestinian Christian merchant in Ramallah, said: “The Israeli occupation in Gaza and the West Bank doesn’t distinguish between us, but treats all Palestinians with contempt.”

Zabaneh’s comments allude to the persistent dehumanization of Palestinians, as well as the erasure of Palestinians, both Christians and Muslims. By constantly casting Palestinians as the villains, even the term “Palestine” becomes “evil.” There is refusal to recognize, for example, that the word “Palestine” was used as early as the 5th century BCE by the ancient Greek historian Herodotus. John Bimson, author of “The Compact Handbook of Old Testament Life,” acknowledges the objection to the use of “Palestine”:

The term ‘Palestine’ is derived from the Philistines. In the fifth century BC the Greek historian Herodotus seems to have used the term Palaistine Syria (= Philistine Syria) to refer to the whole region between Phoenicia and the Lebanon mountains in the north and Egypt in the south… Today the name “Palestine” has political overtones which many find objectionable, and for that reason some writers deliberately avoid using it. However, the alternatives are either too clumsy to be used repeatedly or else they are inaccurate when applied to certain periods, so “Palestine” remains a useful term…

Deliberately avoiding the use of the name “Palestine” not only misrepresents history, but also reinforces anti-Palestinian racism as acceptable. When one examines the argument against Jesus being a Palestinian, one detects a remarkable amount of hostility aimed at both Palestinians and Muslims. One cannot help but wonder, is there something threatening about identifying Jesus as a Palestinian? Professor Jack D. Forbes writes about Jesus’ multi-cultural and multi-ethnic environment:

When the Romans came to dominate the area, they used the name Palestine. Thus, when Yehoshu’a [Jesus] was born, he was born a Palestinian as were all of the inhabitants of the region, Jews and non-Jews. He was also a Nazarene (being born in Nazareth) and a Galilean (born in the region of Galilee)… At the time of Yehoshu’a’s birth, Palestine was inhabited by Jews-descendants of Hebrews, Canaanites, and many other Semitic peoples-and also by Phoenicians, Syrians, Greeks, and even Arabs.

Despite these facts, there are those who use the color-blind argument: “It does not matter what Jesus’ ethnicity or skin color was. It does not matter what language he spoke. Jesus is for all people, whether you’re black, white, brown, yellow, etc.” While this is a well-intentioned expression of inclusiveness and universalism, it misses the point.

When we see so many depictions of Jesus as a Euro-American white man, the ethnocentrism and race-bending needs to be called out. In respect to language, for instance, Neil Douglas-Klotz, author of “The Hidden Gospel: Decoding the Spiritual Message of the Aramaic Jesus,” emphasizes the importance of understanding that Jesus spoke Aramaic, not English, and that his words, as well as his worldview, must be understood in light of Middle Eastern language and spirituality. Douglas-Klotz provides an interesting example which reminds me of the rich depth and meaning of Arabic, Urdu, and Farsi words, especially the word for “spirit”:

Whenever a saying of Jesus refers to spirit, we must remember that he would have used an Aramaic or Hebrew word. In both of these languages, the same word stands for spirit, breath, air, and wind. So ‘Holy Spirit’ must also be ‘Holy Breath.’ The duality between spirit and body, which we often take for granted in our Western languages falls away. If Jesus made the famous statement about speaking or sinning against the Holy Spirit (for instance, in Luke 12:10), then somehow the Middle Eastern concept of breath is also involved.

Certainly, no person is superior to another based on culture, language, or skin color, but to ignore the way Jesus’ whiteness has been used to subjugate and discriminate against racial minorities in the West and many other countries is to overlook another important aspect of Jesus’ teachings: Love thy neighbor as thyself. Malcolm X wrote about white supremacists and slave-owners using Christianity to justify their “moral” and “racial superiority” over blacks. In Malcolm’s own words, “The Holy Bible in the White man’s hands and its interpretations of it have been the greatest single ideological weapon for enslaving millions of non-white human beings.” Throughout history, whether it was in Jerusalem, Spain, India, Africa, or in the Americas, white so-called “Christians” cultivated a distorted interpretation of religion that was compatible with their racist, colonialist agenda.

And here we are in the 21st century where Islamophobia (also stemming from racism because the religion of Islam gets racialized) is on the rise; where people calling themselves “Christian” fear to have a black president; where members of the KKK and anti-immigration movements behave as if Jesus were an intolerant white American racist who only spoke English despite being born in the Middle East. It is astonishing how so-called “Christians” like Ann Coulter call Muslims “rag-heads” when in actuality, Jesus himself would fit the profile of a “rag-head,” too. As would Moses, Joseph, Abraham, and the rest of the Prophets (peace be upon them all). As William Rivers Pitt writes:

The ugly truth which never even occurs to most Americans is that Jesus looked a lot more like an Iraqi, like an Afghani, like a Palestinian, like an Arab, than any of the paintings which grace the walls of American churches from sea to shining sea. This was an uncomfortable fact before September 11. After the attack, it became almost a moral imperative to put as much distance between Americans and people from the Middle East as possible. Now, to suggest that Jesus shared a genealogical heritage and physical similarity to the people sitting in dog cages down in Guantanamo is to dance along the edge of treason.

Without acknowledging Jesus as a native Middle Eastern person — a Palestinian — who spoke Aramaic — a Semitic language that is ancestral to Arabic and Hebrew — the West will continue to view Islam as a “foreign religion.” Hate crimes and discriminatory acts against Muslims, Arabs, and others who are perceived to be Muslim will persist. They will still be treated as “cultural outsiders.” Interesting enough, Christianity and Judaism are never considered “foreign religions,” despite having Middle Eastern origins, like Islam. As Douglas-Klotz insists, affirming Jesus as a native Middle Eastern person “enables Christians to understand that the mind and message” of Jesus arises from “the same earth as have the traditions of their Jewish and Muslim sisters and brothers.”

Jesus would not prefer one race or group of people over another. I believe he would condemn today’s demonization and dehumanization of the Palestinian people, as well as the misrepresentations of him that only fuel ignorance and ethnocentrism. As a Muslim, I believe Jesus was a prophet of God, and if I were to have any say about the Christmas spirit, it would be based on Jesus’ character: humility, compassion, and Love. A love in which all people, regardless of ethnicity, race, culture, religion, gender, and sexual orientation are respected and appreciated.

And in that spirit, I wish you a merry Christmas. Alaha Natarak (Aramaic: God be with you).
