Diane King

John Kaminski is a writer who has lived on the Gulf Coast of Florida for two decades, except for a few months of running from the poisons that were put in the Gulf of Mexico a few years back by madmen who are trying to rule the world by destroying it. A journalist who served as editor at no less than eight different small newspapers over a period of three decades, Kaminski more recently has distinguished himself on the Internet as one of the very few who wholeheartedly opposes this Jewish perversion of reality that now threatens the health of every living thing on Planet Earth. As a result of his forthright analyses implicating Jewish bankers in the most heinous plots ever perpetrated on humankind, Kaminski has been banned from many websites which depend on covert Jewish money for their continued existence, a satanic compromise which has polluted and diminished the quality most of the world’s businesses because of their dependence on a commodity which has been controlled by Jews for centuries — money.

There is no money in telling the truth, someone once said. Kaminski has no money, almost literally. But his words have resonated in the minds of many conscious listeners and readers, and his reputation for unflinching criticism of the worldwide Jewish criminal network has gained him the appreciation of many who also seek to live in a just world. Kaminski leaped into prominence with his relentless examination of the 9/11/2001 tragedy, about which he concluded that Muslims had nothing to do with these dastardly acts. 9/11 was wholly the work of the cynical people who managed to steal and control the American presidency and Congress at the beginning of the 20th century. These people are principally the so-called elite Jewish bankers who savaged England, France, Russia, and Germany by funding subversive attacks on decent people. Now they have just about destroyed the United States as well.  Jewish bankers have been the driving force behind all the wars in history, Kaminski insists, because of their skill in manipulating interest-bearing debt and the unsuspecting people who incur that debt.

Now it seems, the world is finally coming around to Kaminski’s way of thinking, motivated by the recent episode of Israelis shooting unarmed people in the head on the high seas when they attacked the Freedom Flotilla on its compassionate and humanitarian mission to assist the Palestinians in Gaza. “It’s typical Jewish behavior,” Kaminski says. “The guiding force of Judaism is the Talmud, and the Talmud is the heart of darkness in human history. Everything that is evil in the world can be traced to its teachings.” One look at the state of affairs in the world today reveals the correctness of this statement. Kaminski continues his quest to enlighten the world about the Jewish threat to everyone’s continued existence.

JIM RIZOLI, Cofounder, producer/interviewer (Fred Leuchter and Assistant, Diane King) of the Series, LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY REVISIONISTS.  This also entails seeking out UNSUNG HEROES and German survivors of Allied atrocities – The German Story, The German Way.  Hard core historical revisionist, Jim and, his brother, Joe moved from combating the illegal immigrant hordes in their cable shows to dealing with the fundamental and pervading issue of the holocaust. Their immigrant battles led them to the plight of Ernst Zundel in Canada, being prosecuted for having reprinted *Did 6 Million Really Die*! Thus Jim and Joe’s efforts and cable shows also turned toward the issue of the holocaust.  That’s when their troubles accelerated. In 2002 – 2003 they began producing numerous (1000s of videos) dealing with many issues and 100s of videos about the holocaust. Consequently, YouTube videos (700) under the name of Jim Rizoli were banned. His name was banned on Facebook. In 2010, their cable shows were suspended. They returned and then were permanently removed in 2014. We are back to provide a venue of/freedom of, telling the story for tried-and-true revisionists and Germans throughout North America, Europe and Australia.

International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people

“Mazin Qumsiyeh” qumsi001

This is the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people as declared by the United Nations general assembly ! But locally people see so little solidarity and Israel continues to violate basic human rights with impunity. For the past week, we mourned ten more young Palestinians killed, and we saw home demolitions, we saw the continued horrific siege of Gaza, we saw health and religious rights violated daily, and we saw roads blocked
to traffic (getting from one Palestinian area to another is becoming impossible). I just returned from Hebron to Bethlehem, a distance that should take no more than half an hour. It took more than five hours because of closures etc. It is a police apartheid state that makes sure we do not have a normal functioning life. we watched as Turkey shot down a Russian airplane over Syrian territory (and lied about the issue since there is no way, they could have provided warning in the few seconds that the airplane moved across that tiny jetting Turkish territory), we watched as Russia provided evidence of convoys of stolen Syrian oil traveling to Turkey and funding Daesh/ISIS, we shared on facebook videos of horrors committed by deluded human beings against other human beings, continued to see French government go down the same deluded path that the US government did after 11 September 2001, and continued to suffer from tear gas and other weapons used against us by Israeli occupation forces.

Amid the horrors, at Bethlehem University, we welcomed Professor Zuhair Amr who is helping us in research areas on biodiversity, we worked at the museum and botanical garden, we continued our teaching (though students may miss some classes), we received more donation of time and resources from kind people, I gave a talk at an environmental conference about importance of research in environmental and health fields, we met great new people
including award winning book writers and artists, and we continued to have “joyful participation in the sorrows of this world”. To light a candle in this darkness keeps us sane.

For those in Palestine: You are invited to a workshop at the Palestine Museum of Natural History (http://www.palestinenature.org/visit/ ) 3-6 PM
Wednesday. Prof. Zuhair Amr and Prof. Mazin Qumsiyeh leading discussions and practical training on areas of biodiversity and environmental conservation. Reservations required 02-2773553 or email info@palestinenature.org For those who cannot attend, please donate to keep these activities going: http://www.palestinenature.org/support-us/

For all, please continue and expand your work in boycotts, divestment, and sanctions (BDS), a movement that is accelerating the arrival of peace with justice. Here is a good report by the American Anthropological Association that is very well done which can be adapted to push for BDS in others groups.

NDP purge of pro-Palestine candidates plays into Harper’s hands By Justin Podur

NDP purge of pro-Palestine candidates plays into Harper’s hands

By

Justin Podur

[Editor’s Note: All graphics furnished by RadicalPress.com] 

The Conservative Party is on the hunt, and with the help of the NDP and Liberals, they are cleansing Canadian politics of anyone who might think of Palestinians as human beings.

In the first weeks of the election campaign, two NDP politicians have had to distance themselves from statements about facts that are utterly obvious to anyone who knows Israel/Palestine, one nominated candidate has had to resign, and many more NDP members have been blocked by the party from seeking nominations to run for office.

Quebec NDP candidate Hans Marotte expressed past support for the first Palestinian intifada, a mass movement against Israel’s occupation to which Israel responded with the “broken bones” policy of violent repression. When the Conservatives dug up his comments, Marotte said it was proof they couldn’t find anything more recent. He didn’t recant, but he was effectively silenced.

Ontario NDP candidate Matthew Rowlinson had to issue a statement apologizing for signing an “incendiary and inaccurate” letter that included the documented and provable claim that ethnic cleansing of Palestinians is ongoing in Jerusalem. The “inaccurate” part of the letter said that Israel seeks a Jerusalem free of Palestinians. As for “incendiary,” we would do better to look at some of the weapons Israel deploys against Palestinians — more on that to come.

The tortured language of this reply to disgruntled supporters is a consequence of muddled thinking.
Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 11.06.52 AM copy

Then there are those who have been dumped by the party. Nova Scotia NDP candidate Morgan Wheeldon had to resign for calling Israel’s 2014 attack on Gaza, which killed more than 2,200 people including more than 500 children, a war crime. NDP member Syed Hyder Ali, who had wanted to run in Edmonton, was told to withdraw his name — because he also said that Israel was guilty of war crimes. Jerry Natanine of Nunavut, the mayor of Clyde River, was tossed because, in his words, “I often side with the Palestinians because of all the hardship they are facing and because nothing is being re-built over there.”

Out of date, out of touch

Those who wrote to the party about Morgan Wheeldon’s forced resignation were treated to an incredibly out-of-date, out-of-touch email response, in which Wheeldon was accused of “minimiz[ing] the horror of violence targeting civilians,” which is “unacceptable and contrary to NDP policy, which condemns terrorism.” The party reply also repeats that the NDP supports “a two-state solution that would see Palestinians and Israelis living side by side in independent states.”

The tortured language of this reply to disgruntled supporters is a consequence of muddled thinking. In 2014, it was very clear that the monstrously outmatched Palestinian fighters were focused on military targets. Of 72 Israeli casualties, 66 were soldiers. The “horror of violence targeting civilians” was experienced mainly by Palestinians. Is the NDP saying that what Israel is doing to Palestinian civilians can be justified by “terrorism,” which presumably refers to the use of rockets by Palestinians (and not the use of heavy artillery and bombs by Israel)?

He should be clear that these circumstances include the high-tech slaughter of children.

NDP policy is at least a decade out of date. No one in Israel is interested in a two-state solution or a peace process. Israel took a decision just over a decade ago to “freeze” the peace process. Since then, Israel’s war against the Palestinians has continuously expanded, with attacks on Gaza’s trapped, defenceless population in 2006, 2008-2009, 2012, and 2014.

To be fair, Wheeldon’s Facebook posts, which mentioned the bombings of buses by Hamas, were also a decade out of date. The last bus bombing by Hamas was around 2005, and in the ten years since, the organization — labeled “terrorist” by all parties in Canada — has focused increasingly on confronting the vastly more powerful Israeli military, while that military has focused its incredible firepower on Palestinian civilians. It may also be worth mentioning that Hamas has been fighting against ISIS in Gaza, and has lost lives doing so, while there is de facto collaboration between Israel and al-Qaeda in Syria, as Asa Winstanley and others have reported.

Infanticide

The NDP’s response reveals that it does not understand Israel/Palestine today. How might the NDP go about gaining such an understanding?

There is Amnesty International and Forensic Architecture’s Gaza Platform, which has data on every bomb and shell that Israel launched into Gaza in its 2014 attack. It reveals a pattern of attack that is hard to explain in any way except as the targeting of civilians and civilian infrastructure. It was built as an accountability tool, in the hopes that justice will eventually be done, and that those responsible for the deaths of thousands of civilians, the destruction of thousands of homes, and the deliberate targeting of hospitals, schools, medical personnel, and UN facilities will face some kind of legal consequences.

Don'tKilltheChildren copy 8

There are statistics, like the fact that infant mortality in Gaza has risen for the first time in 50 years, thanks to Israel’s siege on the territory it has attacked three times in the past six years. Or the fact that life expectancy for Palestinians is 10 years shorter than for Israelis. Or the fact that Israel decided almost a decade ago, explicitly, to limit the number of calories available to people in Gaza — to “put them on a diet.”

Only one side, the Israeli side, controls every detail of every Palestinian life in Gaza and the West Bank.

There is Mads Gilbert’s new book, Night in Gaza, in which the Norwegian doctor who has spent many years visiting Gaza describes the 2014 attack as the worst he’s seen. The book shows pictures of the heroic medics and doctors who try to save lives and treat injuries as Israel tests new kinds of shrapnel on Gaza’s children. Gilbert describes what he saw as “infanticide.” He notes that, with a median age of 18, more than half of Gaza’s 1.5 million people are children. Those children are not allowed to leave — they are sealed in behind a wall on three sides and a navy patrolling the sea on the other. Israel has imprisoned them. Gaza, notes Gilbert, is not just a prison, but a child prison.

When Mulcair says, as he did in 2008, that he is “an ardent supporter of Israel in all situations and circumstances,” he should be clear that these circumstances include the high-tech slaughter of children, the imprisonment of children, the imposition of of caloric intake formulas for children, and increased infant mortality and reduced life expectancy. By a matter of simple logic, these are all things that Thomas Mulcair supports.

Destruction

There is Max Blumenthal’s book, The 51 Day War, with its harrowing tales of Palestinians people herded by Israeli soldiers at gunpoint into a house and forced to stay there in the house at gunpoint until the house is bombed and dozens of people are killed.

There is also Harvard economist Sara Roy’s article, which includes a quote summarizing Israel’s approach to Gaza: “No development, no prosperity, no humanitarian crisis.”

Then there is the Israeli side, for which the required reading is Breaking the Silence’s report, “This is How We Fought in Gaza.” It includes testimonies from Israeli soldiers about what they did in Gaza last year. Every single one of them — and there are 111 — is shocking in some way. Choose a few at random. Maybe read about the soldiers’ songs, like “Palestinians only sing the chorus as they have no verses (houses) left” (testimony 1). Or read about the targeting protocols, about how decisions to fire on buildings were made (testimony 51):

“Throughout the entire operation there was a sort of building far away near the coastline… it wasn’t a threat to us, it had nothing to do with anybody, it wasn’t part of the operation… but that building was painted orange, and that orange drove my eyes crazy the entire time. I’m the tank gunner, I control all the weapons systems … So I told my platoon commander ‘I want to fire at that orange house’, and he told me: ‘Cool, whatever you feel like’, and we fired.”

It is playing the right’s game, which it can’t win.

After a few testimonies, readers can take a break and watch a video of Israeli protesters chanting another song outside the hospital of a Palestinian hunger striker: “Why is there no studying in Gaza? Because they have no children left!” Spend some time looking at some terrifying tweets from last year by teenagers taking selfies with captions including “Death to the Arabs.”

Remember that Israeli newspapers are running columns with headlines like “When Genocide is Permissible,” and Israeli politicians call Palestinian children “little snakes.” And anyone thinking that indifference to civilian lives or hateful, racist, and genocidal beliefs are common to both sides might remember that only one side, the Israeli side, controls every detail of every Palestinian life in Gaza and the West Bank, from where they can and can’t go to their very caloric intake.

Playing the right’s game

Israel is heading in an ever-more genocidal direction towards the Palestinians. Support for this move is only possible for those who give up any pretence of anti-racism, universal human rights, anti-militarism, and democracy. It is only possible, in other words, on the right side of the political spectrum.

1_boycott-israel-campaign_2006_50_70_amer-shomali-basel-nasr1 copy 2

On the other side of the spectrum, the pro-Palestine movement and Palestinian civil society are working on a rights-based, not a solutions-based, framework, and are working towards boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS). Many Canadian politicians have heard of the BDS movement, at least for long enough to denounce it. Mulcair, for example, has said that he finds BDS “grossly unacceptable,” as one might expect of someone who ardently supports Israel in every situation and circumstance.

If the progressive position supporting BDS is grossly unacceptable, perhaps Mulcair might find more acceptable Hamas’s conditions for a 10-year truce with Israel: an end to the siege of Gaza and the opening of a seaport, an airport, and the land crossing into Egypt. This is actually far short of the NDP’s quaint espousal of a two-state solution, since the occupation would continue. But all the same, for the NDP to call for the opening of Gaza and the freeing of 750,000 children from prison in today’s context would be politically significant indeed. It won’t happen for exactly that reason.

These may be the evil political calculations that have to be made in order to succeed electorally. But here is something to consider. If the NDP purges the progressive, pro-Palestine voices from its party out of fear of supporters of Israel’s ever-escalating violence against the Palestinians, it is playing the right’s game, which it can’t win. Israel’s national politics, which has drifted so far to the right that to call someone a leftist is an insult (and “punch a lefty, save the homeland” and “good night, left side” are slogans chanted at pro-war demonstrations), could teach the NDP something about how this works. There, too, left and liberal parties spent the past few elections trying to pander to centre-right sentiment, and have basically disappeared as a political force.

The NDP’s purge of pro-Palestine candidates can only help Stephen Harper, who doesn’t talk nonsense about a two-state solution but simply and openly supports whatever Israel wants and is doing. Those who want that will vote for Harper, not the NDP.

Meanwhile, if voters want to cast their ballot this October for a major Canadian party that believes that Palestinians are human beings too, they can’t.

Sir:
You recently posted this article and it seems that you are quite proud of labelling all those organizations listed as “anti-Israel” and “anti-semitic”.
This list is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the hatred people have for the Zionist state of Israel including the USA and Canada which supports all their endeavours INCLUDING the amassing of weapons of mass destruction.
Israel has been the favoured nation by the USA, the latter having poured in BILLIONS into their treasury coffers since the end of WW2 as well as all the armaments needed to attack any neighbouring nations.
It is one of the richest nations in the Middle East and yet it manages to secure financing from a number of sources including the sale of Israeli bonds throughout the planet and the Jewish kosher tax paid to the various Jewish organizations and synagogues as a result of the display of the kosher symbol on various products sold to us unwary consumers in stores throughout the world. This is in addition to its control over the MSM and Hollywood just to name a few.
Screen-Shot-2014-06-04-at-10.56.23-PM
For barely 2% of the world’s population Israel and its lobbies wield a tremendous amount of power over Congress and the Parliament of Canada, just to name a few. Israel has become the favoured nation by Harper who unilaterally decreed that Canadians, right across our nation, support our federal government’s support for Israel. This is an utter falsehood!
Harper has NEVER taken a poll of Canadians on this subject because, as I read his lips, he was told not to do so. The boycott by Israel of Palestine, preventing the importation of needed food, medical supplies and other goods, is disgustingly immoral and illegal as far as this 79 year old is concerned. It is Israel that should be boycotted. But that won’t happen until push comes to shove!

Harper, The Ottawa Shooter, and Selling of War by Anthony J. Hall

The Ottawa Shooter Episode of Oct. 22 and the Depiction of the Anti-ISIL War as Simultaneously a Domestic and International Anti-Terrorist Campaign

Screen-Shot-2014-10-28-at-1.51.26-PM-300x320

The sensationalized media coverage of the police and military responses to the violent actions of one or more shooters in the Canadian capital of Ottawa Canada on Oct. 22 was truly global in scope. Among the newspapers that used on their front pages dramatic photographs of the elaborate militarization on Canada’s Parliament Hill were the New York Times, New York’s Daily News, the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, UK’s The Guardian, Madrid’s El Pais, France’s Sud Ouest, Belgium’s De Morgan, Netherland’s de Volkskrant, Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine, Kuwait’s Arab Times, the Kuwait Times, Lebanon’s Daily Star, and Pakistan’s Dawn.

The geographic outlines of this story’s dissemination correspond fairly well with the list of countries lining up to go to war with the non-state entity being regularly described to the world as “the Islamic State,” ISIL, or, in the Arab-speaking and Farsi-speaking countries, DAESH. The countries that have declared war on ISIL include United States, Canada, Great Britain, France, Australia, Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, the Netherlands, Denmark, Czech Republic, Italy, and, in very qualified ways, Germany and Turkey. The government of Kuwait is allowing its military air bases to be used by the jet fighters, including those of Canada’s Armed Forces, that are at this moment converging on the Middle East to conduct anti-ISIL warfare.

Very significantly the government of Iran has joined forces with American forces in Iraq to oppose the incursions of the Sunni-based ISIL. Indeed, the Shia-oriented Islamic Republic of Iran has committed members of the Quds Force, an elite unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards, to the conflict under the direction of the “chief technician,” Commander Qasem Soleimani. A much-lionized military figure in his own county, Commander Soleimani helped advise Hezbollah on its military defences against the incursions of the Israeli Defense Force. He is also credited with helping in the defense of the forces of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad against Western-backed al-Qaeda mercenaries, some of whom have recently  joined ISIL.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-28-at-1.53.54-PM-320x271

Among countries who have declared some sort of moral support on ISIL are Israel, Bulgaria, Egypt, Finland, Georgia, Greece, Kosovo, Oman, Poland, Croatia and Ukraine. The Arab League has also aligned itself against ISIL. Among the countries whose governments and/or whose private citizens have been accused of helping to recruit, organize, train, arm and finance ISIL are the United States, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and United Arab Emirates. This would not be the first time in history where powerful interests back both sides in a conflict. Certainly the governments of most of these countries accused of being on both sides of the conflict with ISIL were backers of the campaign to overthrow the Assad regime in Syria. Ironically Syria’s Armed Forces right now are bearing a large part of the burden of the military campaign to fend off the territorial incursions of ISIL.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/11124070/Who-is-in-the-anti-Islamic-State-coalition-and-what-they-are-contributing.html

After 9/11 there was much discussion about the need to transform the international rules of war to facilitate military campaigns against non-state entities capable of operations across many international boundaries. In spite of this discussion the US-led response to 9/11 was characterized by attacks on sovereign states, namely Afghan and Iraq. New governments were imposed on both countries as an outcome of the US-led military invasions.

The international war on ISIL now formally ushers in the new type of conflict so much discussed since the transformative events of Sept. 2001. The multilateral invasion of what is essentially a club or an association of a transnational assembly of fighters raises many fundamental questions about what might, in the light of future history, be looked back upon as the formal end of an international order based on the concept of the juridical integrity of sovereign states. In this regard Russian President Vladimir Putin was seemingly far ahead of many other world leaders with his penetrating analysis at the Valdai Club of the unparalleled dangers engulfing humanity at this time when the whole notion of international law has seemingly been renounced by the coalition of governments taking their considerable direction from the US and Israeli governments.

Selling War; Selling the Loss of Civil Liberties; Selling the End of Habeas Corpus; Selling the Further Expansion of the Surveillance State 

The huge coverage afforded the Ottawa shooter episode in the world press might be interpreted as a means of publicizing the launch of yet another US-led invasion of Iraqi territory.

The graphic photographs proliferating throughout the global media depicting the militarization of Ottawa’s Parliament Hill could be seen as a means of dramatizing the preferred story line of those with responsibility for guiding public opinion to support the War on ISIL. The effect of the pictures was to dramatize the anti-ISIL campaign as simultaneously a domestic anti-terror operation as well as an international anti-terror military operation.

Certainly Stephen Harper has tried to emphasize the dual character of the anti-ISIL campaign in a speech he presented in the Canadian House of Commons about three weeks before the Ottawa shooter incident. He described the ISIL’s intentions to target Canadian citizens and families, to create conditions where “Canadians should not feel comfortable in our own homes.”

ISIL. A Very Well Funded, Well Equipped Military Force. Who is Providing the Financing, the Arms, and Help with Using the Social Media? What Do Those Providing this Backing Expect to Gain in  Return? What is the Backers’ Agenda? Why so Much Emphasis on Takfiri Politics? Who Stands to Gain? Who Stands to Lose? When War Wins, Truth Loses.

The Canadian prime minister accused ISIL of torturing and beheading children, raping women and selling them into slavery, and engaging in the wholesale slaughter of minorities. A month prior to his Oct. 3 speech Harper had already committed, without any parliamentary debate whatsoever, Canadian troops to conduct reconnaissance missions on ISIL. Just as the events of Oct. 22 unfolded Harper was engaged in expanding the police powers of his own executive branch to “monitor aspiring terrorists.”

Shortly after the events of Oct. 22 on Parliament Hill I was contacted by Manuel Ochsenreiter, a friend and colleague I met recently at the New Horizon conference in Tehran. One of the topics we addressed at the New Horizon conference in Tehran was the subject of the disproportionate influence of Israeli lobbies on many of the governments lining up to fight ISIL. For this the conference was condemned in predictable terms by the Anti-Defamation League and others as being “anti-Semitic.” It will be interesting if this kind of predictable knee-jerk anti-Iranian rhetoric continues now that the anti-ISIL campaign has been joined by some of the most elite fighting forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Questions and Answers

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-12.58.41-PM

Manuel Ochsenreiter, chief editor of Zuerst magazineine in Germany, posed the following questions to me:

1. Ochsenreiter: Prof Hall, Canada had a reputation for being a peaceful, harmonic and – boring – country. Then came the shooting event on Parliament Hill that shattered old stereotypes around the world. What is going on in Canada? Before we get into the details of the outburst of gunfire on Oct. 22 in the formerly peaceful constitutional monarchy covering the northern half of North America, can you give us some context and historical background? Can you tell us something about what is behind the events that connect this violent outburst with the changing political culture in Canada?

Hall: In a nutshell, the tectonic transformations in Canada’s political landscape are being engineered by Stephen Harper and the political cabal he embodies, serves and represents. Harper is a neocon extremist who entered the political scene as the Canadian franchise holder of the US Republic Party led by the Bush-Cheney gang of operatives. In my view, Harper’s move from the margins of Canadian federal politics to his seizure in 2011 of a majority of seats in the Canadian House of Commons took place with the help of an array of dirty tricks, some of them administered from outside Canada. These dirty tricks include the wholesale importation into Canada of the US Republican Party’s comparative advantage in election fraud.

Here’s how it went. In 2003 the Liberal Party government of Jean Chretien had control of a firm majority of seats in the House of Commons. Although the Chretien government did join in NATO’s invasion of Afghanistan after 9/11, the Chretien Liberals refused to join the US-led invasion of Iraq. The then- Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, Stephen Harper, objected strongly. He went so far as to co-author an article in the New York Times indicating that the refusal of the Canadian government to join the US-led invasion of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq was shameful and a betrayal of the underlying principles on which Western civilization is based.

Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien Receives a Standing Ovation from the Liberal Majority in the Canadian House of Commons in 2003 for Refusing to Join with the US-Led Invasion of the Iraq under President Saddam Hussein.

Now Harper is getting his wish. Under his leadership of the federal government, Canada is joining the United States and other polities in yet another US-led invasion of Iraq. This time around the agenda seems to be to include the objective of overthrowing the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad. Ironically Syria’s Armed Forces right now are shouldering the main military brunt of opposing the incursions of ISIL, the weird non-state entity that misrepresents itself to the world as the Islamic state.

The violent events in Ottawa, including the death of Canadian soldier who was ceremonially protecting Canada’s main war memorial, are in my view deeply bound up with Harper’s very zealous efforts to follow the US example of putting Canadian Armed Forces primarily in the service of Israeli plans for expansion. I would say a very rapid Israelification of public discourse is taking place in Canada as those in Harper’s circle, including a large swath of the Canadian media, engage in increasingly broad and open-ended references to “terrorism” as the justification for a huge expansion of police powers of the federal executive branch.

There are reports circulating in recent days that by executive order a whole new system of command in control is being set up in Canada that mirrors the so-called Homeland Security regime in the United States that has arguably not returned since 9/11 from the state of emergency declared that day. This initiative is being informally dubbed Track B.

Without any parliamentary or judicial oversight whatsoever, and before any credible third-party investigation has taken place of the violent events in Ottawa on Oct. 22, Track B is reportedly being put in place. It would equip police and special para-military units with unlimited powers of arrest and detention. It would authorize the creation of Canadian secret prisons, the kind of black sites notorious for the sadism of their jailers and the stink of their torture chambers.

Track B would advance the issuing of open ended warrants to incarcerate anyone indefinitely without due process or Habeas Corpus. This apparent Israelification of the Canadian police state offers yet more proof that Vladimir Putin was completely justified in his recent Valdai address in pointing out that the old notions of the rule of law have been thrown aside both internationally and within the domestic realms of many governments.

2. Ochsenreiter: Before we get into the details of what did or did not happen in Ottawa on Oct. 22, are there other contextual comments you would like to make.

Hall: Yes. I think it instructive to do a fast history of the rapid-fire alterations in Canada’s political culture between 2003 and the most recent federal election of 2011 that gave Harper his majority of seats in the House of Commons. It should be underlined, however, that this win gave Harper a tainted mandate because of judicial findings that the election of 2011 involved fraud. Similarly a court in Canada ruled that the federal election of 2006, when the Harper’s party first replaced the Liberals in a minority government situation, involved accounting fraud and overspending.

About the relationship between the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Harper’s preoccupation with building up the Canadian police state a colleague of mine, Prof. John McMurtry, has emphasized what transpired in the federal election of 2006. Prof. McMurtry has written,

“Harper also owes his political life to the RCMP. After a non-confidence vote triggered the 2006 election, RCMP commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli instructed his staff to include former Liberal finance minister Ralph Goodale’s name in a news release announcing a criminal investigation. This reversed the stench of the Harper regime’s continuous scandals and corruption onto the Liberals by a false RCMP smear. As a former top insider of the Tory party advised me, “the RCMP won the election for Harper”. The elected Harper regime then surrounded the RCMP with blocks to silence all facts – the signature operation – so the truly deepest scandal of the era proceeded with impunity to the present day. So it is not surprising that CSIS, the RCMP and Harper are collaborating to get more secret powers for the police and spooks in return for serving Harper’s underlying agenda.”

In 2003 the Liberal Party, who in that era was sometimes referred to as Canada’s natural governing part, held 172 of 301 seats in the House of Commons. In 2011 the Liberal went down to 34 seats and the Conservatives took 166 seats. This fundamental reconfiguration of Canada’s political landscape didn’t happen without a lot of help from outside powers. As part of the process the centrist Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, an indigenous organization rooted in Tory opposition to the revolutionary secessionists who founded the United States, was basically eliminated. The Progressive Conservative Party was brought to an end to be replaced by a political operation which is best understood as a Canadian branch plant of the US Republican Party. The new entity significantly dropped the word “progressive” from its label, advertising itself simply as the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC)

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper Addressing the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset, in Jerusalem in January 2014.

In my view the deeper meaning of what transpired began to come into sharp focus early in 2014 when Stephen Harper addressed the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, the first time a Canadian prime minister has ever done so. Harper was accompanied in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv by an entourage of 200 supporters. This entourage was made of up leading representatives of his main political base composed primarily of Jewish and Christian Zionists. Harper was given a standing ovation led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The politicians followed Netanyahu’s lead in rising to their feet when Harper took such a hard line on the issue of the Israeli settlements that two Palestinian members of the Knesset walked out in protest.

In the speech Harper promised that he would never criticize the Israeli government publicly, a promise whose meaning would not become fully clear until July when the Canadian government fully sanctioned the Israeli line that the murderous invasion of the Gazan concentration camp in Operation Protective Edge was an act of Israeli self-defense rather than a war crime. Harper condemned those that do criticize Israel for violating the human rights of the Palestinian people as purveyors of a sophisticated new form of virulent anti-Semitism.

Up until this past week, 2014 has not been a good year for Prime Minister Harper politically. He has been dogged by a scandal involving certain payments from his office to Senator Mike Duffy, formerly a famous TV commentator employed by CTV. The CTV’s Lead Reporter on Parliament Hill was Mike Duffy. CTV’s Mike Duffy unethically used his journalistic podium to help transform Harper’s political party into Canada’s governing party. Harper has been lagging in the polls behind the Liberals, now led by Justin Trudeau. Now in his mid-40s, Justin is the bright and very telegenic son of Canada’s former prime minister, Pierre Elliot Trudeau. Many see the elder Trudeau as the most dynamic personality ever to lead Canada, the very symbol of almost everything Harper entered politics to change.

The next Canadian election is scheduled for just under a year from now so the political season is upon us. There is a court case where Senator Duffy is being prosecuted for accepting a bribe from the prime minister’s office, a trial that seemed guaranteed to put Harper in even deeper political trouble. But of course its highly possible that Harper will be able to divert attention from the scandals engulfing him by changing the subject to war mania. The war agenda involves the Prime Minister granting his own executive branch greatly expanded police powers, the public aspect of which coincidentally came before Parliament just as the Ottawa shooter episode flashed into the headlines.

Senator Mike Duffy and Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Happier Times. As a CTV reporter, Duffy was Elevated to the Senate for Violating his Journalistic Objectivity by Openly Campaigning for the CPC while he was Still a Journalist. Now Duffy is Charged with Accepting a Bribe from the Prime Minister’s Office. The War on ISIL and the Ottawa Shooter Episode is Helping Harper Change the Subject of Political Discourse in Canada from the Political Scandal Engulfing Him to the Threat of Terrorism.

Predictably the mainstream media here immediately fell into line, eschewing all skepticism while peddling flag waving patriotism aimed supposedly at quelling “homegrown terror.” Meanwhile Canadian jets, military advisers and special forces join the international coalition of assault squads pointed against the weird ISIL concoction whose aim seems to be to express in real life every Islamophobic stereotype cultivated by Hollywood and, since 9/11, by almost every major media venue in the so-called Western world.

Harper is quite simply infatuated by the mystique of war and the added executive powers his office can claim domestically and internationally in a wartime environment. As I see it, Harper came to power in 2006 riding the wave of militaristic energy generated by a specious interpretation of what happened on 9/11. To this day this pivotal event has never been subjected to a credible, third-party investigation unconnected to partisan political agendas. On becoming Prime Minister Harper increased his Liberal predecessors commitment to NATO’s war mission in Afghanistan. He visited the Canadian contingent in the Eurasian country often and built up his warrior’s personae by having himself filmed frequently with Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan.

As is being well reflected in the coverage of the lethal events at the Canadian War Memorial in Ottawa, Harper is trying to blank out the reputation of Canadian Armed Forces as peacekeepers rather than belligerents. This image of Canada as a peace keeping nation goes back to the term of Liberal Prime Minister, Lester Pearson. Pearson first suggested a UN peace keeping mission at the height of the Cold War to ease tensions in Egypt after the government of Gamal Abdul Nasser seized control of the Suez Canal in 1956.

Harper has been very much a war hawk when it comes to the conflict in Ukraine. His foreign minister, John Baird, is very aggressive in highlighting Canada’s unconditional support for Israel as the primary centrepiece of Canada’s orientation to the rest of the world. Harper himself seems to picture his role as a Canadian equivalent to that of the US president who derives enormous power from his or her dual role as US Commander-In-Chief. Harper’s immersion in the military aspects of his executive power translates into his awkward relationship with the unwritten constitution Canada inherited from Great Britain and the parliamentary democracy of the Westminster system.

In spite of the fact that citizens do not vote directly for a Canadian prime minister like they do for an American president, Harper’s self-conception as chief executive officer of a Canadian republic, but without the checks and balances, puts him at odds with the oldest strains of Canada’s constitutional heritage. Harper’s contempt for Parliament was reflected in his repeated shutting down of Canada’s Parliament under an element of the unwritten constitution known as prorogation. In Canada the decision to shut down a parliamentary session prematurely technically belongs exclusively to the Head of State, Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty the Queen delegates this power of prorogation to her regal representative in Ottawa, the Governor General of Canada.

The first prorogation took place in late 2008 under conditions where Harper’s Conservative Party was about to lose power through a coalition of three opposing political parties that collectively held more seats than the Conservative Party. Very clearly Harper imposed improper political pressure on the Queen’s representative to block a vote of no confidence in the Canadian House of Commons. Harper would have no longer been prime minister if such a vote had been allowed to go forward which it should have if Canada’s constitution had been respected. In 2008 and 2009 Harper again applied inappropriate political pressure on the Queen’s representative just as a parliamentary committee was turning up persuasive evidence that Canadian Armed Forces had been regularly handing over prisoners to Afghani forces for torture. If this line of disclosure had continued it is perfectly possible that Canadian officials right up to the prime minister would have faced criminal procedures at the International Court of Justice in the Hague for violating prohibitions on torture.

The current session of Parliament was just about to begin when the shooting episode at the war memorial and in the hallways of the Canadian parliament broke out. The late start of parliament deep into the autumn of 2014 came about because of yet another Crown decision to grant Stephen Harper his request for prorogation. The whole delicate structure of Canada’s parliamentary democracy depends on the capacity of the Queen’s representative to exercise a form of judicial and non-partisan independence distinct from the branch of the Canadian government devoted to partisan politics.

This political independence of the Governor General’s office has become a sad hoax ever since the practice developed of the Queen accepting automatically the advice of successive prime ministers in filling the job of Canadian Governor General. This appointment procedure has politicized the Office of Governor General. The Queen’s representative in the Dominion of Canada is meant to exist outside of political influence peddling. In Canada at this time the Governor General is His Excellency David Johnston. The current Queen’s representative won the current prime minister’s approval when Mr. Johnson, then a private citizen, drew up the terms of reference for an investigation into the role of former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney in Air Canada’s purchase of a number of European Airbuses. The affect of Johnston’s intervention was to distance Stephen Harper from the scandal that developed after it was shown that Mulroney had accepted kickbacks from the European airplane manufacturers through the agency of Karlheinz Schreiber and Bavarian premier Franz Josef Strauss.

This background information I hope helps establish that Canada as we have known it is profoundly imperilled by an unscrupulous prime minister who, I am convinced, would have no qualms whatsoever to violate any rules or laws, domestically or internationally, if he deems that such action is necessary to retain the country’s top job or to expand his own prime ministerial powers. I hope this background information helps expose that conscientious citizens in Canada and international observers outside have every reason to be deeply skeptical of the explanations officialdom has given us concerning what happened on Oct. 22.

 3.Ochsenreter: So explain for us please what you understand to have happened or not to have happened on Oct. 22 just as the Canadian government was about to open a new parliamentary session. We understand that the main agenda item was to put in place the complex of policies and laws surrounding the federal government’s commitment to invade Iraq and Syria in the name of fighting terrorism both internationally and domestically. Who was the shooter, what happened in the prelude to Oct. 22, and how credible or not is the government’s account of what happened?

Hall: As I awoke on the morning of Oct. 22 the regular hourly news broadcast by the Crown Corporation, the Canadian Broadcasting Company, featured a live report of the shooting at the War Memorial, the main War Cenotaph in Ottawa just a short distance to Parliament Hill. I know the site well. It is much less than a mile from Parliament Hill. When I heard the initial radio report there was no information about the subsequent drama about to break out in the main citadel of Canada’s diminishing democracy. Presumably the shooting in the Parliament Building had not yet happened.

Screen-Shot-2014-11-02-at-8.24.16-PM

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-2.42.18-PM1

Significantly the information on the alleged shooter’s identity initially came from unnamed US government authorities that are said to have fed the story to Reuters. Many reports also cite the American broadcaster CBS as the originating point of the widely reported story on the alleged shooter’s identity. In an early CBS News report the alleged shooter’s name was given as Michael Abdul Zehaf-Bibeau. His birth name was reported as Michael Joseph Hall. These same US sources described the alleged shooter as a “recent convert to Islam,” a person on a watch list of “high-risk travellers” deemed suspicious and dangerous by the FBI.

The family connections of the accused man deserve some careful and explicit attention. The accused individual is now supposedly dead, although as far as I know no body has been yet been produced to support the claim. No explanation has been produced to account for the transformation of Michael Joseph Hall into Michael Zehaf-Bibeau. His mother’s name is Susan Bibeau and the name of his father is Bulgasem Zehaf who was born in Libya. Michael’s parents divorced in 1999 when their son was 17. Where did the name “Hall” initially come from? Is the accused’s adoption of the name Michael Zehaf-Bibeau or, as initially reported, Michael Abdul Zehaf-Bibeau, somehow connected to his alleged recent conversion to Islam?

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-2.43.21-PM

There have been many conflicting reports of the number of shooters involved with often conflict reports of what precisely took place over the course of Oct. 22.

Susan Bibeau is Director General of Canada’s federal Immigration Department. In other words, the alleged shooter’s mother is the top administrative official in Canada overseeing the issuing of all passports. She is thus a top ranking official in Stephen Harper’s government. Ms. Bibeau’s position might have implications for the claim that the alleged shooter was not able to get a Canadian passport. The US sources reported that Michael wanted a passport to go to Syria to join ISIL, a evocative story line that is immensely useful to those seeking to exploit the episode to connect the domestic and international sides of the US-led coalition’s anti-ISIL war. Susan Bibeau has explained that the real story is that her son wanted to travel to Saudi Arabia.

Michael’s father is reported to have left Libya for Canada because he was unhappy with the somewhat socialistic government of the late Muammar Gaddafi. It is reported that he returned to Libya in 2011 to join the actions of the NATO-backed so-called rebels who wanted to overthrow Gaddafi’s regime. Many of these anti-Gaddafi groups were at the time identified as being connected to al-Qaeda. In other words, the father of the alleged shooter was associated with the al-Qaeda-related groups of mercenaries that did overthrow Gaddafi. The rebel activities culminated in Gaddafi being sodomized and then murdered in cold blood to the applause of many governments including that of Stephen Harper in Canada. Some of the paid mercenary soldiers in Libya moved onto Syria where they received support from Turkey, Western governments, and the city state sheikhdoms of the Persian Gulf. Many of the foreign-backed fighters in Syria were also connected to al-Qaeda, the alleged culprits of 9/11. The rise of ISIL can be interpreted as a sort of rebranding of Islamic fighting forces previously associate with al-Qaeda.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-4.49.37-PM-244x320

Yet another conflicting account suggesting there were two masked figures, one who did not accompany the other when he entered the Centre Block. Thanks to Joshua Froze for this item.

It was reported in the Washington Times that Michael’s father, Bulgasem, spent time in a Libyan prison having been arrested in his native city of Zawiya. When he returned to Montreal after his ordeal it was reported that, “Mr. Zahaf said the main prison in the city was overflowing with inmates who were forced to live in subhuman conditions and were routinely tortured by their captors.”

The son of Bulgasem and Ms. Bibeau spent much of his own life committing criminal acts, some of which earned him criminal charges. Among the crimes he committed were credit card fraud, drunk driving, theft, possession of a deadly weapon, escaping custody (twice) and possession of marijuana and PCP. In late 2011 he was charged with robbery in Vancouver. He plea bargained, pleading guilty to the lesser charge of uttering threats. In spite of his very long record the Judge sentenced the convicted man to one day in jail. It was after this day in jail that the alleged shooter allegedly converted to Islam, apparently acting in a way that raised red flags about him at the mosques he attended.

The author of the blog from whom I have gleaned much of this biographical information asks, “Did they use him like our FBI uses various career criminals who are facing a shit-load of serious time, to run around trying to find Muslims to set-up in entrapment schemes so they could create a looming terrorist attack and then foil it at the last minute?”

 http://willyloman.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/ottawa-shooting-the-really-really-really-odd-story-of-michael-zehaf-bibeau/

Rather than stay with his mother while he was in the Ottawa area the alleged shooter is said to have stayed in a homeless shelter. Nevertheless it is said he was able to purchase a car the day before he allegedly shot Corporal Cirillo. Then it is alleged that Zahef-Bibeau was himself shot inside Canada’s core Parliament Building. The person credited with killing the alleged killer of Corporal Cirillo is the Sergeant-at-arms of the House of Commons, Kevin Vickers.

Because of his criminal record, the alleged shooter was prohibited from having firearms. Much debate has ensued about whether or not the alleged shooter was motivated by a clear political agenda of engagement in terrorism or whether he should be understood as a drug-addicted and very confused man whose crimes had more to do with his own personal crisis that some desire to join ISIL and take part in violent jihad.

4. Ochsenreiter: There are some reports of some major drill involving police and Armed Forces that were underway on Oct. 22. Some investigators associate staged violent events with drills approximating the course of violent events. Could you please enlighten us on this subject.  

Hall: The fact that US sources were the originating site of the basic explanation of the violent acts in the Canadian capital may well be connected to the existence of a major Canada-US “Homeland Security” Drill codenamed Determined Dragon. This drill was underway when the shooting occurred. The period between Oct. 20 and Oct. 29 is described as the “execution phase” of the drill meant to improve the “interface” of emergency measures operations for “homeland defense and homeland security missions” in “defense of North America and global defence.”

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-4.42.15-PM-640x531

The drill linked something known as the Canadian Joint Action Command with NORAD (North American Areospace Defense Command), the United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) and the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM). Some observers of the events of Oct. 22 were fast to point out that the concurrence of military and police “drills” involving scenarios similar to actual acts of unexpected violence are often the hallmark of false flag events.

False flag events are those where individuals or groups are covertly manipulated to commit or seem to commit heinous acts in order to justify various actions including ramping up police powers, surveillance powers, and the initiation of aggressive warfare. In his volume Synthetic Terror, Webster Tarplay pointed to 46 drills that ran concurrently with the events of 9/11. Some of these drills approximated some of the scenarios that unfolded on 9/11 creating understandable confusion and chaos among, for instance, air traffic controllers.

One could easily imagine that four similarly dressed individuals were part of a drill when they assembled on Parliament Hill just before the alleged shooter arrived to carry out the second phase of his supposed jihadist mission. The widely reported story is that Zehaf-Bideau shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo at Canada’s War Cenotaph. He allegedly attempted to shoot and kill a second soldier but missed. Then he is said to have gotten back in his Toyota Corolla sedan, which he apparently purchased the day before.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-5.06.50-PM-640x340

These four individuals converge concurrently just before the alleged shooter’s car approaches Parliament Hill. When the car pulls up they all move toward the Corolla as if to greet it. What is going on here? The picture is at 5:08 of the You Tube

       https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7zANAFd58M

In any case it’s interesting that the alleged shooter had the means to purchase a used car even though he was reportedly staying at a homeless shelter. The official account would have the alleged shooter of Corporal Cirillo, whose death was reported upon almost immediately on national radio, get into his car and drive undetected, unchallenged and certainly unobstructed to Parliament Hill. The film above was released by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The footage is described as that from security cameras. In the You Tube above four young and very fit men, all similarly dressed in suits and brief cases, act at first as a greeting party seemingly waiting for the newly-purchased vehicle to arrive. When the car does pull up in front of the big park area outside of the Parliament Buildings the four men all approach the vehicle in unison. They then run away in unison when the individual subsequently identified as Zehaf-Bibeau gets out. Are these apparently related individuals so-called “crisis actors?”

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-6.04.02-PM-223x320

The next scene shown by the RCMP pictures the alleged shooter running along the wall of one of the outlying Parliament structures. This area in front of the Parliament Buildings is heavily traveled by staff and by tourists. Many police are regularly assigned to watch this area. How was it possible for the alleged shooter, who is said to have been carrying a rifle, to be prancing around this very closely scrutinized public space without being noticed? Or was there some determination on high that he should not be noticed, that he should be allowed entry into the main entrance way of the main Parliament Building?

In the RCMP’s video presentation allegedly showing the sequence of events following the alleged shooter’s arrival on Parliament Hill, the subject is so far from the security camera filming him that he cannot be clearly identified. The subject is shown approaching a high-end car whose driver is said to be on call to transport a high-ranking government of Canada official. After commandeering the car, rifle openly in hand, the supposed jihadist then drives towards Parliament’s main entrance way. One might think in watching the RCMP’s video that the alleged shooter is getting a police escort in his short trip. Two police cruisers pull in behind the commandeered vehicle and drive slowly behind it. No sirens are blaring or police lights flashing. A bus, truck or large van pulls in behind the commandeered car in a way that seems almost designed to shield it from any disruption in its short trip. The alleged Shooter then parks the vehicle and enters the hallway separating the House of Commons Chamber from the Senate Chamber. At a leisurely pace police officers subsequently emerge from their own cars have followed the subject to his destination.

There is a lot of video tape giving various angles of what happened inside the central Parliament building although none of it that I have seen gets anywhere near the alleged killing of the alleged shooter of Corporal Cirillo. Many camera crews were on site and were not evacuated in whatever police procedures took place culminating in many shoots being fired allegedly somewhere in the area of the internal entrance way to the Parliamentary Library.

Many other facets of the government story of the events of Oct. 22 are far from having been proven conclusively. There are, for instance, many strange elements in the videos of the para-medical treatments meted out after the shooting on the site of the War Memorial after the alleged shooting took place. For instance Cpl. Branden Stevenson, the second soldier guarding the sacred monument, is not among those pictured in the group trying to save Cpl. Cirillo’s life. Where did he go?

The efforts to pump the victim’s chest cage seem demonstrably problematic. The video scenes of what happened after Zehaf-Bibeau entered Parliament also raise many questions. Like officialdom’s story of what happened on 9/11, almost every aspect the official account of what happened in the area of Parliament Hill on Oct. 22 seems to cry out for skeptical, evidence-based investigation.

5. Ochsenreiter: How did the media report the events?

Hall: In Canada there is a well-known deference to authority that tends to preclude the asking of awkward and possibly embarrassing questions of public officials especially in times of emergency and tragedy. That is certainly the case here. The night of the tragedy Rex Murphy did one of his frequent commentaries on the nightly national news report of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Murphy made his mark at the CBC praising Stephen Harper when he travelled to Afghanistan to embrace Canada’s military role in combatting what were initially depicted as the Islamic terrorist forces said to be primarily responsible for the attack on the United States on 9/11. His role at the CBC has been the subject of considerable controversy after it was reported that he accepts significant sums of money from oil companies on whose activities he reports on the CBC.

Murphy depicted the alleged shooter as a psychotic monster whose depravity he contrasted with the heroic greatness of fallen Corporal Cirillo and the Sergeant-at-arms of the House of Commons, Kevin Vickers. Vickers is credited with shooting the interloper at point-blank range although some reports indicate that many individuals had a hand in killing the supposed jihadist. Murphy’s reporting epitomizes the diagnosis of many that the CBC is fast becoming a state broadcaster rather than an impartial public broadcaster devoted to balanced reporting. This diagnosis is similar to that often applied to the British Broadcasting Corporation and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

In another era the CBC might have been considered the progressive wing of Canada’s constellation of media outlets. That situation, however, is fast changing rapidly. The reporting of Sun News, which is in the process of amalgamating with PostMedia Corporation, has been predictably inspired by the war agenda. Its operatives are firmly behind Harper’s desire to amplify the terrorist threat as the key to his transformation of Canadian institutions into his own personal medium of unassailable authority. The Sun Media-Post Media print publications and TV outlets predictably push an Israeliocentric line of analysis that conforms quite consistently to the propaganda for aggressive warfare whose most iconographic expression is the media empire of Rupert Murdoch and especially Fox News in the United States.

excerpt from the Mitrovica article.

There has been some commentary putting in the forefront the fact that Zehaf-Bibeau is, or has been, addicted to crack-cocaine, and that he may suffer from mental illness. This line of analysis is leading some to question how the alleged actions of a troubled individual who seems to have fallen between the cracks of impoverished and radically downsized social services agencies in Canada can really be held up as the reason to further empower the Canadian police state in the name of the latest iteration of the so-called Global War on Terror. Linda McQuaig has gone beyond this discussion in her article, “For Stephen Harper Fear Works.” She writes, The real danger here is that we will be terrorized — not by terrorists or mentally ill killers, but by Stephen Harper — into accepting an aggressive ‘war on terror’ agenda. Those who don’t jump on board will soon get the message: ‘If you’re not fighting terrorism, you’re with the terrorists.’”

 http://www.ipolitics.ca/2014/10/29/for-stephen-harper-fear-works/

Andrew Mitrovica, who used to work at Canada’s Globe and Mail in the days before those directing this influential Canadian media outlet abandoned their journalistic integrity, did a significant commentary on how Canadians have been betrayed by a press corps that operates primarily as stenographers for officialdom’s press releases. In a fairly popular web publication entitled, iPolitics Mitrovica explained that “Canada’s so-called media and political ‘elites’ abandoned” any semblance of “history, context, perspective, understanding, skepticism and thoughtfulness…. In their stead, we got a week-long diet of chest-thumping patriotic clichés, cheap, meaningless hyperbole and tropes that, taken together, have already manufactured widespread consent for what will surely be another assault on our rights and freedoms engineered by a cynical Conservative government.”

6. Ochsenreiter: You seem very suspicious that the official story is misrepresenting the truth or holding back key elements of the truth.

Hall: Yes. I thinks that’s fair comment. I think this episode is quite probably yet another illustration of the type of massive abuse of power that will almost certainly continue to undermine what is left of our democracies in the post-9/11 world. This erosion will persist as long as we do not address collectively the fable of 9/11 as it was foisted on us to substantiate the image of the post-Cold War world as one bedeviled by a clash of civilizations. At the core of this very elaborate psychological operation is the image of “the West” as essentially a Judeo-Christian construct poised against the worldwide community of Islam. Benjamin Netanyahu laid out the master narrative of this way of viewing the world in an edited book of conference proceedings he put together in 1979. The key to the work is well expressed in its title: Terrorism: How the West Can Win.

The continuation of the Global War on Terror, now with ISIL being made to fill the role previously assigned to the all-purpose boogeyman of al-Qaeda after the events of 9/11, depends on producing a constant flow of international and domestic events like the one we saw in Ottawa on Oct. 22. I am not flatly denying that a recent convert to Islam really did go on a murderous rampage acting on what he thought was his own divinely-inspired mission. Similarly, I am not ruling out that the alleged shooter was a troubled and alienated man caught up in some internal crisis that is best understood as a manifestation of personal and/or social breakdown.

My main contention at this time, however, is that there is no persuasive evidentiary basis to accept at face value most aspects of the government’s interpretation of not only what happened, but especially why it happened. Indeed, the coincidence of the timing of the Ottawa shooting on the first day of this particular parliamentary session, whose centerpiece is bound to be the war on the non-state entity that calls itself the Islamic State, is simply too stupendous not to arouse suspicion.

Seeing the way this debacle was seized upon by the international media as a kind of precautionary tale to illustrate the linkage between the domestic and international facets of the War Against ISIL also makes me wonder what is going on with the PR campaign to harness public opinion to the politics of this many-faceted police and military campaign. In today’s world the promotion of war forms the most lucrative of all potential projects for the PR industry that came to maturity in the context of the Cold War.

A pioneer of Madison Avenue’s PR promotion of war is Edward Bernays. The nephew of Sigmund Freud, Bernays publicized a concocted fable in 1954 of indigenous freedom fighters rising up to oppose communism in Guatemala. Using various performance tricks and forgeries for the press a myth was created to cover over the reality of a US-backed coup aimed at overturning the land reforms of Guatemala’s elected leader, Jacobo Arbenz. Years later the world’s largest PR firm, Hill and Knowlton, was hired in 1990 to sell Americans on President George H.W. Bush’s plan to invade Iraq with the goal of preventing Iraq from taking control of contested Kuwaiti oil fields.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-8.09.34-PM-320x317

The giant PR Firm of Hill and Knowlton was retained by the White House of President George H.W. Bush in 1990 to sell the American people a war against the Iraqi government then led by Saddam Hussein. The company employed the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to Canada and the United States to defraud Congress and the US media with a fabricated story about Iraqi soldiers ripping Kuwaiti babies from incubators to kill them.

The scheme infamously led to Congressional hearings where the daughter of Kuwait’s ambassador to the USA and Canada presented a fictional story as fact. Feigning tears and trauma, the girl known solely as “Nayirah” alleged, falsely we now know, that the army of Saddam Hussein had taken Kuwaiti babies from incubators to smash them lethally to the floor. The scam worked. Public opinion was manufactured to support the invasion plans of the 41st president of the USA. Of course no one went to jail for this most consequential defrauding of the public.

Seen through the lens of prior PR campaigns aimed at selling war through fraud and disinformation it becomes more possible to imagine that police and soldiers in Ottawa on Oct. 22 were encouraged to put on a good show for the cameras. Their intensively photographed actions provided pictorial grist for the international media. Their performances sent the desired signals to whole populations that the world is embarking on a new and even more dangerous phase of the never ending 9/11 Wars. The PR message would be that average citizens have no choice but to embrace on an even larger scale the need to operate our societies according to martial values and principles. The events in Ottawa on Oct. 22 were spun purposely or inadvertently to edify a culture of fear connected to the dehumanizing demonization of those subjected to the most severe indignities of Islamophobia, a plague that is already reaching epidemic proportions. Ultimately these indignities corrode the humanity of both those on the delivering and receiving ends of this travesty.

The heavily publicized story about events in the Canadian capital released originally from anonymous government sources in the United States provided a powerful marketing spin to promote the goal of expanding the powers and budgets of the already formidable forces of state coercion. Harper wasted no time in addressing the Canadian nation by doing his best imitation of former US President George W. Bush in the days and weeks following 9/11. His over-the-top speech was immediately and magnificently spoofed in Great Britain by the great comic controversialist, Russell Brand. Stephen Colbert provided a mirror image to Brand with a comic twist that went along with and amplified the dominant narrative. One of Harper’s lead spin doctors, Rex Murphy, also took immediately to the CBC airwaves with his own propagandistic diatribe. Its calculated effect was to urge along the remaking of Canada as a warrior state modelled in the image of Israel.

More, much more, is at stake in this saga than the political future of a single country or of the current Canadian prime minister. The larger objective of the drill that may have been rendered real, or, in other words, switched “live” on Oct. 22, might well have been to clear aside perceptual obstacles to a major invasion by many of the world’s most heavily armed powers, including the United States. The immediate target of this invasion is some of the most strategic turf in the Middle East. The larger agenda would seem to be, for starters, the breakup of Syria and Iraq in ways that could fulfill the divide-and-conquer plans first articulated by the Israeli geopolitical strategist Oded Yinon in the mid-1980s.

The history of false flag terrorism, a subject almost never covered in the mainstream media, is rife with examples of patsies set up as murderers. Lee Harvey Oswald would be an example of one supposed “lone gunman,” the archetype for the “lone wolf” scenario now being advanced in the case of the Ottawa shooter. A key question to be addressed is the role of those police state observers said to be keeping a close eye on the former Michael Joseph Hall, the current Michael Abdul Zehaf-Bibeau. Did these supposed observers in our so-called national security services have any role in the alleged Ottawa shooter’s supposed conversion to Islam, in the process that police officials as well as the current Canadian Prime Minister are very anxious to identify as “radicalization?”

Were those security officials or their agents and informers involved with the alleged Ottawa shooter actually handlers who had identified the mental instabilities of a vulnerable individual? Might such handlers have viewed Zehaf-Bibeau as an asset to be exploited? Was the alleged killer of Corporal Cirillo, a Canadian soldier apparently taken down while nobly protecting Canada’s main shrine to our fallen soldiers, a person whose extensive criminal record made him vulnerable to manipulation? Did Zahef-Bibeau receive suggestive help in coming to the conclusion that he should commit acts that would not advance the cause of Islam but would advance dramatically the interests of Stephen Harper and his war cabinet? Who led Zahef-Bibeau through his recent conversion to Islam? What happened along the way to his allegedly committing acts that some would view as essential to the process of bringing public opinion to the service of a vast establishment that has been making so-called “national security” into a huge growth industry?

There is a large and many-faceted academic literature on the subject of so-called intelligence agencies like the CIA, Mossad, MI6, BND, and CSIS in the underground world where very real conspiracies are hatched and implemented in ways that remain hidden for years. Operation Gladio is one such example. Disclosures concerning Operation Gladio expose how acts initially depicted as terrorists’ violence were enacted at the behest of NATO operatives and other deep state operatives. The end game of this activity was to make sure that public opinion in countries like Greece and Italy remained hostile to communists or suspected communists.

Swiss academic Daniel Ganser has documented the Gladio story, suggesting it provides a possible lens through which to view what really transpired on 9/11. Richard Cottrell has added scope and depth to the disclosures with his comprehensive volume, Gladio: NATO’s Dagger at the Heart of Europe. The writings of Nafeez Ahmed are also very strong on this subject of the amazingly close and complex connections between intelligence services in the West and Islamic groups and individuals placed very high on many terrorist watch lists.

Berkeley Professor Peter Dale Scott, the son of a powerhouse of Canadian social democracy, F. R. Scott, has written prolifically on the subject of deep state intrigue involving intelligence agency assets who mix their activities in the terrorist trade with the drug trade and the nuclear trade. This whole complex of inter-related activities is bound up in a strange undercover world of oil and gas exploitation in the vast pipelinestan region of Eurasia. The large literature of the scandalous global operations of the Pakistani-and-Saudi-based Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), a favourite financial institution for the CIA, the Bushes, the bin Ladens and the Afghan mujahadeen, are very revealing when it comes to illuminating the vast distance between how officialdom tells us the world runs and how the world actually runs.

The list of cases where the FBI uses well-paid agents and informants in the effort to foment, facilitate and then apprehend acts of police-instigated, police-enabled violence – act of false flag terrorism – is becoming very long. As Guelph University’s Professor Michael Keefer has made very clear with his exemplary investigative reporting of the so-called Toronto 18, this form of entrapment exists in Canada as well as in the United States. The Toronto 18 case concerns a group of Muslim youth in the Toronto area who were encouraged by a highly-paid Islamic undercover agent working for the federal police to commit violent acts in 2006.

Then in 2010 Canada’s police and media establishment went into hysteria-generating overdrive publicizing “homegrown terrorism” as a huge problem for Canada. Without actual proof or any due process whatsoever the Globe and Mail proclaimed the police discovery of a terrorist plot stretching “from Ottawa across the globe to Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Dubai…The call of jihad rings far and wide. What terrifies in the terrorism arrests” the editorialists proclaimed, “is that individuals who seem to be, and may in fact be, well integrated into their communities succumb, nevertheless, to the call of jihad.” The case focused on a Dr. Khurran Sher, then a 28 year old recent graduate of McGill University’s medical school. Those profiling him in the media also emphasized that Dr. Sher was an avid ball hockey player as well as a former contestant on Canadian Idol. In recent months Dr. Sher was found in court to be not guilty on all charges. In its small news report describing the not-guilty outcome the Globe and Mail made no apology for years earlier convicting this man in the court of public opinion.

The Ottawa shooter story has been covered by Tony Cartalucci. In an article in the Land Destroyer Report Cartalucci compares the fate of Zahef-Bibeau to that of a Rochester man of Yemani background, Mufid A. Elfgeeh. Elfgeeh was charged with trying to deliver three individuals to ISIL. He was also charged with plotting to kill American soldiers returning from Iraq. All three individuals that Elfgeeh allegedly tried to recruit and send along to Syria were undercover FBI informants. Cartalucci compares the Zahet-Bibeau and Elfgeeh case. The FBI script to “entrap” Elfgeeh “would be followed almost to the letter in live attacks subsequently carried out in Canada.”

In both the Elfgeeh and Zahef-Bibeau cases both the Canadian and US governments had both men under surveillance. Both were listed as “high risk travellers” whose passports had been revoked. Cartalucci concludes “It is very likely that the recent attacks in Canada involved at least one “informant” working for the FBI. Because the FBI uses confidential informants to handle suspects, if a plot is switched “live,” the informant will be implicated as an accomplice and the FBI’s covert role will remain uncompromised…. With both suspects having been on both US and Canada watch lists, it is very likely undercover agencies were involved in either one or both cases. While many possibilities exist, Western security agencies should be among the first suspects considered as potential collaborators.”

7. Ochsenreiter: Do you have any other thoughts on this matter, Prof. Hall, reflections that might help round out your analysis of this matter.

Hall: It should be noted that on Oct. 20 another convert to Islam, Martin Couture-Rouleau, drove down two Canadian soldiers killing one of them in St. Jean-sur-Richelieu in Quebec. After a car chase Couture-Rouleau was shot and killed by police. This young man in his mid-20s was on a watch list and had already had his passport revoked. The same questions about the role of possible informants and agents in the Zahef-Bibeau case could also be posed concerning the sequence of events leading to the death of a Canadian soldier in this hit-and-run case.

Tony Cartalucci has speculated that the gruesome spectacle of ISIL’s beheadings, which may have been in whole or in part simulated for the cameras, did not arouse a sufficient level of public abhorrence to translate into a high level of public support for another open ended military intervention in the Middle East. This consideration may have been a factor in the sequence of events that culminated in rendering predictions real that ISIL’s hostilities would soon be visited on North American and European countries.

Another subject which I think deserves attention is the widely disseminated photograph depicting a gun wielding Zahef-Bibeau supposedly at the Canadian war memorial at the actual moment he allegedly killed Corporal Cirillo. The alleged assailant is masked in a scarf of the type frequently worn in the desert regions of the Middle East. Of course this photograph went viral. It provides a damning image that would seem to create the necessary “proof” that the murder took place in the way we were told; that Zehaf-Bibeau’s alleged lethal actions on Oct. 22 were somehow the product of “radicalization” caused by Islamic extremism rather than by mental illness or the malevolent handling of a security police asset.

I haven’t yet been able to find a credible account of the image’s source. There was some controversy about whether or not the picture first appeared on an Islamic State web site and whether or not an unnamed tourist just happened to catch the image that seemingly helps make the case for the veracity of the government story.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-29-at-3.34.14-PM

I for one am skeptical about the source and rapid dissemination of the shooter image to give pictoral support to a narrative whose key elements were introduced by national security officials in the United States. The role of this potent image in effectively convicting Zahef-Bibeau in the court of public opinion before any investigation let alone any trial has taken place reminds me of a similar phenomenon that unfolded in Canada last June.

On June 4 Justin Bourque emerged from his trailer park home heavily equipped with armaments. A professional photographer just happened to be there to snap his image from the front and then from the back in the hours before Bourque is reported to have confronted the police force in his hometown of Moncton New Brunswick. His case could well have beneath it many bizarre twists and turns I shall not recount here. What I want to get at in this assessment, however, is that an image of an armed and dangerous Justin Bourque was fortuitously snapped at just the right moment and then quickly disseminated to the media by the police. What was the sequence of events that allowed this to happen? Was it by accident or was it by premeditated design that this strategic picture was snapped before any shooting spree took. Like Zahef-Bibeau’s picture with a rifle and an Arab scarf, the effect of Bourque’s shooter image was to give mental credence to an account of reality that may cover over hidden elements that might, if known, prove inconvenient for those in power?

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-9.48.43-PM-640x293

Justin Bourque’s image, caught just before his cop-killing shooting spree, was plastered across multiple venues in the Canadian media. His image was sometimes juxtaposed with those of other famous and notorious gunmen. What was the sequence of events from capturing his image before the debacle to using this image in the hours ahead to convict the man in the court of public opinion before any trial had taken place?

The CEO of a so-called independent security and intelligence monitoring group in Ottawa found an interesting way to spin the story circulating on social media that an ISIL-related web site had been the first to publish the image that was supposedly captured by an unnamed tourist at the moment when Zehaf-Bibeau allegedly shot Corporal Cirillo. This spin had the effect that it is ISIL agents, not informers or handlers for the FBI, the RCMP, or CSIS exploiting the fragility and mental illnesses of possible assets. The CEO explained to the hosts of the CBC radio show, As It Happens, “that the swift reaction to the Ottawa shootings by ISIL on social media is in keeping with its own strategy, which includes inspiring acts of violence among people who don’t subscribe to any ideological beliefs, but suffer from mental health problems” He continued. “The fact is that individuals who are already on the margins of society — suffering from mental illness in many cases — often can find inspiration from these kinds of material and carry out acts like we’ve seen over the past week.”

Mubin Shaih was an RCMP “informer” who received at least $300,000 as payment for his entrapment of young Muslims in the Greater Toronto Area in 2006. The young Canadians he helped victimize were served up to feed the effort of the new Prime Minister to help him exploit Islamophobia– the fear of so-called “homegrown terrorism”–  for political gain.

The continuing escalation of military intervention by North American and European military powers in the Middle East and throughout Eurasia more generally is a tragic turn in history diverting humanity from giving priority to the most immediate crises we collectively face. Those crises are the deep and cataclysmic ecological catastrophes engulfing humanity, indeed, engulfing all life on Earth. Prominent in the list of accelerating disasters in our world is the rapid despoliation of healthy sea life in the oceans. Our air, our food, our drinking water are toxified, actually weaponized.  The Fukushima nuclear debacle is a good example of a terrible blight on our posterity that is not being treated with anywhere near the level of international attentiveness it deserves. The biggest and most lethal polluters of all, however, are those that poison the mental environment to clear aside informed public opposition capable of blocking  military invasions on imperial capital’s most lucrative frontiers.

When the Cold War ended in the 1990s, the dominant interests in our war-based political economy could not or would not change. Our societies did not adapt well to the prospects of global peace that accompanied the end of the Cold War. A new global enemy was needed and the replacement enemy was found in Islam, a religion that has long been cynically manipulated and exploited in the course of Orientalist colonization.

One example of this kind of manipulation is the CIA’sbuilding up of the Muslim Brotherhood as a hedge against Nasserism and socialist pan-Arabism in the 1950s. Again in the 1980s the CIA assembled an international mujahadeen made up of recruits  of recruits from many countries. This mujahadeen was both a rebel force and a US proxy army aimed at overthrowing the Soviet-backed regime in Afghanistan. The project succeeded. The Soviet Union and its orbit of influence was destabilized.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-11.58.24-PM

Ian Johnson’s A Mosque in Munich presents a kind of spies’ perspective on twentieth-century Cold War Orientalism. Johnson describes and documents the CIA’s adoption of Nazi tactics for manipulating Islamists in order to create problems for the Soviet Union. The growth of the Muslim Brotherhood led to the Israeli cultivation of one of its offshoots. The Israeli intention was to manipulate Hamas as a way of drawing support away from Yasser Arafat’s Palestinian Liberation Organization, the PLO.

The 9/11 cataclysm has set in motion a seemingly self-perpetuating cycle. The 9/11 fabrication has given rise to a corrupt and self-serving national security racket. The keepers of the national security state’s secrets are not hiding inert objects. In order to keep secrets alternative stories about how reality is constructed are required. These departures into pseudo-reality are invented, planted, disseminated and put into echo chambers of amplification and repetition. The proprietors of the national security state are basically empowered to kill and steal with impunity, all in the name of anti-terrorism. This national security racket tends to bring to power an especially dangerous breed of psychopath like those that are playing the ISIL War from sides.

It is very clear how the government version of the Ottawa shooter event conforms so tightly with Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s ambition to remake Canada in the image of the Israeli warrior state.

How did the very suggestive image come to be of a masked “recent convert” to Islam allegedly killing his prey in what has been portrayed as a murderous moment of jihadist extremism? The subsequent story unfolded in a way that Zahef-Bibeau and Couture-Rouleau are no longer with us to tell their side of the story. What would they tell us if they were still alive to do so?Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-8.34.44-PM-640x527

Palestinians Celebrate Victory against Israel – PRESSTV

Gazans celebrate victory after seven weeks of resistance against the Israeli offensive against the Palestinians of the coastal enclave.

On Tuesday, Palestinian groups and Egyptian mediators confirmed that the Cairo-based talks ended in truce.

Palestinians poured into the streets of the war-torn sliver to celebrate as the Egyptian-brokered truce took effect at 1600 GMT.

People and traffic filled the streets with drivers honking horns and crowds chanting slogans.

The truce stipulates the removal of Israeli blockade as well as the provision of a guarantee that Palestinian demands will be met.

Crossings between Israel and Gaza will open and the two sides will continue holding indirect talks, according to the deal.

The Palestinian territory’s fishing zone will also be widened in the Mediterranean.

The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas said the deal marks a victory for Palestinians and called for mass rallies in the occupied West Bank.

“Today we declare the victory of the resistance, today we declare the victory of Gaza,” Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said.

Israeli warplanes and tanks started pounding the blockaded enclave in early July, inflicting heavy losses on the Palestinian land.

Some 2,139 Palestinians, mostly civilians, including women, children and the elderly, were killed in 50 days of the Israeli onslaught on Gaza. Around 11,000 others were injured.

Tel Aviv says 69 Israelis have been killed in the conflict, but Hamas puts the number at more than 150.

How Canada’s NDP enables and seeks to participate in the Israel genocide of Gaza By Denis G. Rancourt

NDPnoprinci

By Denis G. Rancourt

DenisGRancourt

It is no longer a question of serious debate whether Israel’s intentions and actions constitute genocide, versus less serious crimes against humanity, or simple war crimes [1]. The Israeli establishment, Jewish Israeli citizens, and some prominent members of the Jewish diaspora all expressly call for genocide (extermination, cleansing, “mowing the grass”, etc.). Op-Eds and media statements by Israeli government officials are explicit. Thus, Israel’s actions since 1948 need not speak for themselves, although the actions themselves do speak plenty loud enough. [2][3][4]

All three major Canadian political parties (Conservatives, Liberals, NDP) directly enable the Israel genocide against Palestinians by:

  1. staunchly refusing to condemn Israel for its now-routine mass slaughters in Gaza, or for its latest and most brazen mass slaughter in Gaza of the last month;
  2. expressly, repeatedly, and glibly insisting that Israel — the aggressor, occupier, and perpetrator — has a “right to defend itself”;
  3. accepting and enforcing the US-Israel stance that the forefront formation of Palestinian resistance — Hamas, the elected representatives of Gazans — is a “terrorist” organization;
  4. using this contrived classification of Hamas as a false pretext for allowing the Israel genocide to continue unimpeded, and as a pretext to prevent any meaningful negotiations by allowing Hamas to be excluded from all settlement discussions.

The Green party also plays this role admirably well.

But mostly one has to admire the Conservatives for being consistently vehement with their support for the terrorist state of Israel, whereas the others are pathetic in the apologetic tone of their public statements in support of Israeli crimes, and in their sustained attempts to deceive their potential supporters.

And it is an obvious question to ask how it is that all these parties follow the exact same script? It’s almost like there is an edict being decreed from some unseen body, otherwise known as the Israel Lobby — the US-Empire’s de facto whip on the Empire’s Middle East policy [3].

Back to the NDP. In trying to deceive concerned Canadian citizens while serving the Israeli project of genocide, the Zionist Thomas Mulcair (leader of the NDP) is testing a particularly disturbing tactic: He wants to “bring injured children from Gaza to Canada for treatment” [5][6][7]. Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish is apparently allowing himself to be used in this way, and is fully participating in the proposed scheme [5][6][7].

The NDP would have us follow Dr. Abuelaish who “rejected the politics of hatred and revenge, and instead committed himself to reconciliation and love” [5]. Translated, in its context I take this to mean: to not condemn Israel for its abominable on-going crimes, including incremental genocide, and, instead, to remove children from Gaza in a vast guilt-alleviation scam rather than demand that the blockade be lifted immediately so that all Gazans can begin to benefit from improved medical care and healthier living conditions.

As far as I can tell, this latest public-image-management scheme is not something that originated from Gazan civil society, or from the victims themselves and their extended families. Such systematic child removal is an ethical nightmare: How could this crass proposal have been cooked up and why? Have any of the MDs who want to participate ever asked to volunteer in Gaza, or have they ever spoken out against the Israeli crimes against humanity in Gaza? On so on.

This is lower than low: “Let’s save Gazan children by bringing a token 100 of them to modern medicine in Toronto! Let’s put all the needed diplomatic and logistical resources into this scheme rather than sending aid to Gaza to the people in the field who best know the priorities of what is needed.”

One of the possible defining characteristic of genocide is “Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group” [1]. Arguably, this is the only characteristic of genocide that racist-Israel had not yet materialized. It would appear that it took Canadian multiculturalism and the NDP — benefiting from Canada’s extensive experience from its own highly successful genocide against the First Peoples [2] — to bring us there.

Bravo Thomas.

To me, the NDP scheme is repugnant, à la Zionist Mulcair, and it shows how naive the Canadian public has become (at least the potential supporters of the NDP) that such projects can be proposed for public consumption, and seriously be echoed in some media, without critical analysis. Have we gone mad?

COMMENTARY BY MICHAEL SANTOMAURO:

Most of us are mentally trapped to think Jewish!!

Actually, it is safe to say that virtually every mainstream publication or or other type of media organ is “nothing more than a screen to present chosen views.” The great battle over the last century has been a battle for the mind of the Western peoples, i.e., non-Jewish Euros. The chosen won it by acquiring control over essentially the complete mainstream news, information, education and entertainment media of every type, and using that control to infuse and disseminate their message, agenda and worldview, their way of thinking, or rather the way they want us to think. Since at least the 1960s this campaign has been effectively complete. Since then they have shaped and controlled the minds of all but a seeming few of us in varying degree with almost no opposition or competition from any alternative worldview. So now most of us are mentally trapped in the box the chosen have made for us, which we have lived in all our lives. Only a few have managed to avoid it or escape it, or to even sometimes see outside of it, and so actually “think outside of the (Jewish) box.” –Michael Santomauro

Zion’s New Crusaders: Ezra Levant – Muslim Hunting Jew – Rallies Canada’s Zionist Christians in Support of Israel

by Arthur Topham

July 27th, 2014

It was just a matter of time before Canada’s Zionist media mouthpiece Ezra Levant reacted to Israel’s rain of hell-fire and brimstone that’s been falling on defenceless Palestinians in Gaza since July 13.

The Jew-controlled media around the world and here at home have been working their butt off ever since the Israeli government decided that it was time for another blood sacrifice to their satanic god, Moloch the Death Eater, doing their utmost to muster support for the murdering, blood-thirsty Zionists while the Internet explodes with outrage, disdain and negative reaction to their demonic deeds.

I’m sure the Zionists across the nation were shocked to see the number of Canadians who, finally fed up with the insanity of the Zionist Jews, took to the streets in great numbers to protest what will likely go down in history as a benchmark event in terms of that point in time where the awareness of what’s truly happening in Palestine is finally sinking  in for the majority of decent people across the nation.

Recent events in Calgary, Alberta where a large anti-Israel protest occurred and some rabid pro-Israel Zionist Jews got a thumping for starting trouble, has triggered what Levant is calling his “Calgary for Israel Rally” which is slated to take place in front of Calgary City Hall on Thursday, July 31st at 6 p.m.

Levant has a website erroneously called “Fighting for Freedom with Ezra Levant” where he sends out email to his subscribers. In his latest rally cry for support for poor, beleaguered Israel he writes:

“I live in Toronto now, but as a lifelong Calgarian I was appalled to see a riot by anti-Israel extremists that happened on the steps of City Hall. Worse still, the police did nothing — they weren’t even there. And half a dozen Calgarians were sent to hospital by this Hamas-style violence.

I’m fighting back — peacefully. On Thursday, July 31st at 6:00 p.m., I’m hosting my own rally. It’s partly in support of Israel. But it’s partly for Calgarians to strongly reject this imported Hamas-style violence.

This is Canada — not Gaza.

P.S. Please spread the word about the CalgaryForIsrael.ca Rally on Twitter and Facebook. This event is in Calgary, but let’s make a national impact — we want peace in our Canadian streets, not riots and violence.”

Now how’s that for chutzpah? Ezra the Muslim Hunter who’s been spreading ongoing hatred toward the Arab people via the Sun News Network and elsewhere for decades is now going to rally all the Christian Zionists that he and his rag tag band of Irgun-inspired criminals have been duping and milking for donations for decades and show Canada and the world just how much our nation STANDS FOR ISRAEL!

Heaven forbid that such an outcome would occur but given the fact that Canada’s Christians have been dumbed down for so long by the Jew-controlled news media; so much so that Christians, whose very Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ, was murdered by this same gang of Talmudic Rabbinical tyrants two thousand years ago and they still haven’t figure out who the devil to trust, it will be of great interest to see to what degree their decades and centuries of mind-control propaganda will have on them and whether they’ll turn traitors like Harper and the Conservative government and pledge their allegiance to this foreign, apartheid and racist warmongering state of Israel rather than to their own country of birth and residence.

Ezra Levant is a traitor to Canada along with the Jew-controlled news media that daily uses its unwarranted power and influence to turn average Canadians into rabid Zionists and haters of the Arab people of the world. I see it happening all the time and witness otherwise decent, peace-loving Canadians suddenly go brain-dead when the subject of the Jews and the Arabs come up, all because of the daily brainwashing that they’ve received throughout their lives.

Levant facetiously states in his forked-tongue way: This is Canada — not Gaza” knowing damn well that THE WHOLE WORLD IS NOW GAZA not just Palestine and all because the Zionist Jews have been allowed to build uptheir Big Brother media network of deception and lies into a monopoly and use it to twist the minds of good, honest people who were raised up to believe that their media was independent and free and that it would give them historical truth and not fill their heads with prejudicial lies and and their hearts with hatred.

ZIONISMORWELL

Canadians and freedom-loving, peace-loving people around the world are horrified at what Israel has done to the people and the infrastructure of Gaza and they have not only a right but a duty to be outraged and to express their outrage in the most appropriate manner possible.

Given this fact I hope that as many anti-Zionist, anti-Israel people as possible will gather in Calgary on July 31st and counter this move on the part of the traitorous Jewish lobbyists and their media maniacs like Ezra Levant to shift Canadians away from true Christian values and decent morals and ethics that have served as our guiding principles for centuries, long before our governments were infiltrated by the Jewish lobbyists like B’nai Brith Canada, the former Canadian Jewish Congress and the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy who have always been pro-Zionist and Israel Firsters.

It’s time for Canadians to rise up and unite in defence of freedom and democracy and in defence of the Palestinians who are being genocided right before out eyes while the likes of Zionist Jew Ezra Levant and his Zionist media monopoly lie and deceive us with their deadly deceptive propaganda and hate.

THE END OF ISRAEL

In his speech to the nation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged yesterday that the war on Gaza is a battle for the existence of the Jewish State. Netanyahu is correct. And Israel cannot win this battle; it cannot even define what a victory might entail. Surely the battle is not about the tunnels or the militants’ underground operation, the tunnels are just weapons of resistance rather than the resistance itself. The Hamas and Gaza militants lured Israel into a battle zone in which it could never succeed and Hamas set the conditions, chose the ground and has written the terms required to conclude this cycle of violence.

For ten days Netanyahu did all he could to prevent an IDF ground operation. He was facing the reality that Israel lacks a military answer to Palestinian resistance. Netanyahu knew that a defeat on the ground would eradicate the little that remains of IDF’s power of deterrence.

Five days ago, Israel, at least in the eyes of its supporters, held the upper ground. It saw it citizens subject to an endless barrage of rockets, yet it showed relative restraint, killing Palestinian civilians only from afar, which served to convey an imaginary image of strength. But that has changed rapidly since Israel launched its ground operation. Israel is now, once again, involved in colossal war crimes against a civilian population and worse, at least strategically, its elite infantry commandos are being eradicated in a face-to-face street battle in Gaza.  In spite of clear Israeli technological superiority and firepower, the Palestinian militants are winning the battle on the ground and they have even managed to move the battle to Israeli territory. In addition, the barrage of rockets on Tel Aviv doesn’t seem to stop.

IDF’s defeat in Gaza leaves the Jewish State with no hope. The moral is simple. If you insist on living on someone else’s land, military might is an essential ingredient to discourage the dispossessed from acting to reclaim their rights.  The level of IDF casualties and the number of bodies of Israeli elite soldiers returning home in coffins send a clear message to both Israelis and Palestinians. Israeli military superiority belongs to the past. There is no future for the Jews-only-State in Palestine; they may have to try somewhere else.

Open Letter To The NDP: It’s Time To Condemn Israel’s Massacres

NDPIJVLetterGaza

Originally published on IJV’s rabble blog. 

Dear New Democratic Party of Canada,

As fellow Canadians who are concerned with human rights, we call on you to condemn Israel’s murderous bombing campaign on the defenceless population of Gaza.

Since Tuesday, July 8, Israel has killed over 190 Palestinians in Gaza, including more than 25 children, in addition to wounding over 1,000 people, most of them innocent civilians. Israel’s artillery has destroyed crucial infrastructure for water, sewage and electricity, and countless families’ homes. During this same period, Hamas rockets have not caused a single Israeli death or serious injury nor damaged important Israeli infrastructure. While Hamas’ indiscriminate firing of rockets onto civilian areas must be condemned, of far greater significance are the Palestinian deaths from Israeli rocket attacks.

The majority of Gaza’s population — roughly 80 per cent — are Palestinians who were expelled from their homes leading up to and directly after Israel’s declaration of independence. Israel was founded on the violent dispossession of over 750,000 Palestinians, whose removal was needed in order for Israel to obtain a Jewish-demographic majority, and hence label itself as both “Jewish and democratic.”

Palestinians in Gaza live under a military occupation, since Israel maintains effective control over Gaza’s borders through a blockade by land, sea and air. While Israel’s military occupation of Gaza dates back to June of 1967, its blockade has been going on for over seven years. The blockade, a blatant and illegal form of collective punishment, has been condemned rightfully by the NDP. It was imposed on the Palestinians by Israel as formal retribution for electing a government that refuses to recognize Israel’s violent theft of Palestinian land, and Israel’s ongoing military occupation of Palestine.

We are chagrined that the NDP has yet to speak out against Israel’s bombing of civilians in Gaza. These are war crimes, since it is clear that Israel has used its precision-guided missiles to target families’ homes, hospitals, schools, ambulances, and even a centre for disabled children. The horrific images coming out of Gaza should elicit strong and immediate condemnation from any individual or organization that is concerned about human rights.

Why then, we are wondering, has the NDP failed to condemn these atrocities? Since Israel’s bombing of Gaza began last Tuesday, the NDP has failed to release any formal statement condemning the massacres that the bombing has caused. While we appreciate the NDP’s call — despite coming after a week of Israeli bombings — for a ceasefire, we are deeply disturbed by the NDP’s language in this statement.

In the statement, foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar states that the NDP “have reiterated that Hamas’ continued rocket attacks are unacceptable. We have also voiced our deep concern regarding the escalating violence and reports of civilian deaths.” It appears that while the NDP considers Hamas’ ineffective rockets to be “unacceptable,” Israel’s world-class rockets — that have killed at least 25 children — cannot even be mentioned, nor can the national identity of the civilians who have been killed.

The statement also calls for “restraint” from both sides, without explaining how the babies Israel is killing in their sleep should show restraint. How should hospitals, schools, ambulances, and unarmed families that Israel is bombing indiscriminately show restraint? It is time for real restraint in using this kind of misleading false equivalence that is totally disconnected from the reality of Israel’s massacres against the people of Gaza.

We are absolutely appalled that the NDP has yet to release a statement condemning Israel’s bombing of Palestinian civilians, and expressing condolences to the Palestinian people and to the thousands of Palestinian-Canadians whose family members in Gaza have been maimed, killed, and made homeless by Israel’s bombings. Paul Dewar issued a statement “on behalf of all New Democrats” expressing condolences for the passing of Ariel Sharon, a former Israeli general, Defence Minister, and Prime Minister who was directly responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent civilians (while failing to condemn his legacy of terror), but the NDP has yet to offer condolences for the killing of over 190 Palestinians, the majority of whom are innocent civilians.

As Jewish-Canadians, we want to be absolutely clear that conservative organizations supporting these war crimes and claiming to represent Canada’s diverse Jewish communities do not speak on our behalf. If the NDP were to follow its conscience and support justice and peace in Israel and Palestine — against the interests of Canada’s Israel lobby groups — we would stand with you in solidarity and support. Canada’s Israel lobby groups represent the Netanyahu government’s racist policies of colonization and apartheid, which can only lead to further bloodshed. It is up to the NDP, as official opposition, to oppose Netanyahu’s and Harper’s positions, and stand with the majority of Canadians in support of international law and the human rights of all parties.

With hope for justice and peace,

Independent Jewish Voices – Canada
