Law And The New Fascism In Canada by Robin Mathews

‘The soiled and disgraceful history of the Ministry of the Attorney General of B.C. since 2001 is a faithful representation of the assault on the rule of law and on the integrity of democratic government in Canada in the first 12 years of the century.’
~ Robin Mathews
Many people in Canada have never heard of Shirley Bond, B.C.’s Solicitor General, Minister of Public Safety, and Attorney General of the province. Nevertheless, she fits snugly into the new role of legislators – to block any acts of responsibility to the electorate, to cover up violations of trust by government, to sham the relation between large corporations and the legislators â€őowned” by the corporations.
She is presently insisting that her attempt to block the Auditor General from investigating all the circumstances of the â€őunconventional” $6 million pay-out to Defence Counsel in the Basi, Virk, and Basi (BC Rail Scandal) case is a demonstration of her full and willing cooperation with the Auditor General. Ms. Bond was Deputy Premier when the â€ődeal” was made to chop the (unfinished) trial in order to prevent cross-examination of top politicos and corporate actors … and to pay the costs of the convicted men – Dave Basi and Bobby Virk.
The Gordon Campbell/Christy Clark/Shirley Bond Liberal government will never get to the 2013 provincial election if the full story of the corrupt transfer of BC Rail to the CNR is told. Thus (I believe), we see Ms. Bond’s game of smoke and mirrors with law and with the integrity of the Ministry of the Attorney General.
The move in Canada – and globally, to destroy the rule of law, to assail rights of collective bargaining, to kidnap ownership of nationally-owned resources by multi-national elites, to turn police forces into â€őpalace armies”, to debase the democratic election process, to hand governing to private interests, and to sell off and ship out the sources of worthwhile employment (the industrial base) – has a number of names.

After the March 29th federal budget the Globe and Mail chose to call the move in Canada: â€őHarper’s modest revolution”. If the matter wasn’t so serious, the Globe’s characterization would be laughable. The Harper government (Air Canada, Postal Workers) has set about wrecking collective bargaining in Canada. The Harper forces admitted guilt to an attempted rig of the 2006 election (which should have caused major criminal charges, and has not).
The Harper government has been a party to the highly dubious sell-off of STELCO to U.S. interests, and the closing down of ELECTRO-MOTIVE DIESEL by recently new owner CATERPILLAR – after insulting the employees by offering them a 50% wage cut. And shortly before sale, a $5 million tax grant went to the Corporation from the Harper government. [With what behind-the-scenes agreements??] Expect more of the same under the Harper regime.
In the calculated and highly organized (alleged) Harper Party attempt to wreck the 2011 election through Robocall electronic tactics, another major attack was made upon the legitimacy of the election process in Canada. All indications point to the Conservative Party and its supporters as the major, overwhelmingly involved force engaged in election-wrecking. That must be said repeatedly. The bully-boy tactics of the people with organizations involved and by spokespeople for the Harper force in Parliament are intended, I believe, to stop Canadians from saying just that: every indication points to the Conservative Party and its supporters as creators of the latest attack upon the legitimacy of the election process in Canada.
In addition, using its proxy power in the Enbridge Corporation, the Harper forces are attacking freedom of assembly in Canada. In the North yesterday, the Northern Gateway hearing was closed down because, apparently, Enbridge representatives were offended by a school teacher and pupils showing signs opposed to the Gateway development. Enbridge was trying to say that they will not engage with the population democratically. They want militarized agreement with their corporate decisions.
Proof that the Harper government was in on the mini-blow against democracy is given by its complete silence in the face of the Enbridge action.
That is not nearly all. With this column, I am sending information that has come to me from Kelly Marie Richard. In short, she was (as she and I believe firmly) corruptly prevented from carrying out an action for Dental Malpractice by CGI (Information Technology firm with other widening interests), the RCMP, some of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench judiciary, and others. Her allegation (extending from that experience) in what is attached with this column is, in short, that Stephen Harper is cutting budget and employees at Department of National Defense and Public Safety and is replacing with employees from CGI. Privatizing, secretly, operations of federal government.
Kelly Marie Richard has investigated CGI for some years and has recorded hundreds of CGI employees in Federal Government Departments and Crown Corporations WORKING FOR CGI.
We should not fail to recognize that since the taking of government in B.C. by what is fairly called the Gordon Campbell/Christy Clark forces (2001) ALL of the same kinds of moves have been visible in British Columbia – except, so far, proof of election rigging.
The breaches of trust, the violations of the rule of law, the contracts entered into (at least partly) in secrecy, the sell-out of wealth owned by the people of the province, the dirty cronyism, the cover-up of (perhaps) criminal activity within government, and much, much, much more are too vast and extensive to deal with here.
Here, I will deal with a centre devoted to the wreckage of the rule of law in British Columbia – by which I mean the Ministry of the Attorney General. Since the arrival of the Gordon Campbell/Christy Clark government it may be said that NOT ONE Attorney General has served without at least one (discovered) ugly, unprincipled action destroying the credibility of the Office. How many other violations of trust the Attorneys General have engaged in may come out in future investigations.
It has been said that the Attorney General preceding Shirley Bond resigned because he was pushed (apparently to act politically) by premier Christy Clark, and – perhaps – because he could read the writing on the wall … that the Liberals have no chance in the next election (2013). That may be so. But before going, he was charged with fiddling and delaying the HST referendum. And there is more ….
Not one … not one Attorney General since the arrival of the Gordon Campbell/Christy Clark government, I allege, has conducted himself or herself without reason on the part of the electorate strongly to suspect his/her actions.
Since Attorneys General hold a special and important place in relation to the rule of law, their unbroken failure since 2001 in B.C. is a symbol of the betrayal of democratic process in the country. Attorneys General have a key role. They are responsible for the courts and justice, and they are responsible for advising the cabinet on all matters of law in relation to any cabinet action. They sit both as cabinet members and – at the same time must have the integrity to insist upon fully lawful practice by cabinet.
It is a tough role that calls for integrity, principle, and calm.
Let us look at the record.
In 2003, Geoff Plant, Attorney General (2001-2005), and Allan Seckel, Deputy Attorney General, flagrantly violated the legislation governing the appointment of Special Prosecutors and appointed to the BC Rail Scandal Basi, Virk, and Basi case a man with whom they had both been partners and colleagues for years. As a result, nothing William Berardino did as Special (Crown) Prosecutor can be accepted. Any British Columbian who believes Mr. Berardino worked for the political ends of the Gordon Campbell/Christy Clark governments may fairly hold that belief.
Geoff Plant’s successor, Wally Oppal (2005-09), besmirched his reputation and position in at least two major ways. He did everything he could as Attorney General in the legislature and outside of it under questioning to insist every matter concerning the BC Rail Scandal was â€ősub judice” – that is to say in active consideration by the Courts. That was simply not true.
WOppal
Wally Oppal a gem of an Attorney General
But as telling, in an attempt to get an action in process against the alleged Bountiful bigamists, he also violated the procedure to appoint Special (Crown) Prosecutors. He went â€őSpecial Prosecutor shopping”, which means he was determined to start a case whether experts believed a case was legitimate or not.
The first two â€ődistinguished” lawyers he approached said no case could be taken until a higher court ruled whether religious bigamy was permissible under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Mr. Oppal should have followed the advice of the first Special Prosecutor appointed. Instead, he went from Special Prosecutor to Special Prosecutor until he could get what he wanted – a trial (I believe, for purely political reasons).
When Mr. Oppal’s game was exposed in the first hours of the trial, the Supreme court judge stopped the action, then and there and, in effect, threw it out. A case conducted by the accused against Wally Oppal upheld the action to throw the case out of court and the decision that he had acted wrongfully.
As a result Wally Oppal was appointed to the lucrative post as Commissioner to head the Inquiry into the matters concerning the Vancouver Downtown Eastside women murdered at the Pickton Farm. Many believe it is a sham procedure in which Mr. Oppal prevents questions being asked about matters that would be embarrassing to police or government.
When Wally Oppal was defeated at the polls, he was succeeded as Attorney General by Michael de Jong (2009-10).
Clearly, people inside government were becoming aware that the British Columbia public were concerned the Special Crown Prosecutor process was being used for political ends by the Gordon Campbell government.
Related as suspected corruption but not as a link to the BC Rail Scandal, the new Solicitor General Kash Heed was alleged to have been involved in election irregularities. The Special Prosecutor appointed to look into his actions – Terrence Robertson was found to be in conflict of interest and was replaced by Special Prosecutor Peter Wilson.
Attorney General Michael de Jong decided to conduct a review of the Special Prosecutor appointment process. To do so, he went to a vice president of UBC. That was imprudent, since UBC is in a master/servant relation with the B.C. government which can – at any time – do harm to the operations of the university. A reviewer of government behaviour from UBC can be suspected of prejudice in his/her work. Stephen Owen’s Report did nothing to allay that suspicion.
Michael de Jong appointed Stephen Owen to do the review in May of 2010. Mr. Owen is a vice president in charge of relations with governments – a role that might well restrain him from making a judgement against the B.C. government.
I wrote Mr. Owen a formal letter on the matter of the wrongful appointment of William Berardino as Special Prosecutor in the Basi, Virk, and Basi case. Mr. Owen did not acknowledge my letter. He did not mention the Berardino matter in his review. He interviewed, however, Janet Winteringham who was a part of the Berardino prosecution team. And he interviewed Michael de Jong.
His report in July of 2010 recorded that â€őthere is pride and confidence in the special prosecutor system”. He said the process of appointment is appropriate. And he reported that â€őthe special prosecutor system in British Columbia works well in the public interest”.
When Michael de Jong left the Attorney General position, it was filled by Barry Penner from 2010 to 2011. News stories and commentary on the short time Barry Penner was Attorney General give the impression he was pushed by premier Christy Clark to act politically in the position. Mr. Penner is said to have pushed back, and then to have resigned from the legislature.
Nevertheless, seeking an opinion on the money paid for legal costs to employees of government who are convicted or who plead guilty to crimes, Attorney General Penner sought expert advice on that non-question. A school child could answer it.
He should not have sought a review from the President and Vice Chancellor of the University of British Columbia for the same reason Michael de Jong should not have sought advice from a Vice President of UBC. UBC is supported by the ever-changing budget of governments in power. UBC agents may be accused of  conflict of interest when they provide advice to B.C. government. They may be accused of toadying and seeking favour.
President and Vice Chancellor Stephen Toope should for the same reason – have refused. He should have told Attorney General Penner that there are nearly 11,000 lawyers at work in B.C., thousands of whom have no connection whatever to B.C. government. President Toope should have said ‘ â€őuse one of those lawyers”. He didn’t. He accepted the request. His acceptance, as I see it, was uneasy. For he wrote at the beginning of his report that he was â€őProfessor Stephen Toope”, and he wrote that he was responding â€őin my personal capacity” – which he probably knew was so much rhetorical nonsense. He could not – at will – cease to be the President and Vice Chancellor of UBC. Period.
He appears to me to have done in his review more gently what Stephen Owen did in his – that is, okay government behaviour. Observe what he writes:
â€őthe Ministry of Attorney General officials have worked diligently to respond to requests for indemnification that require the exercise of discretion. Using firmly established common law method, the officials charged with exercising discretion have justified their decisions by drawing out principles present in existing cases and analogizing those principles to new circumstances. [My capital letters.] AS FAR AS I CAN TELL FROM THE DOCUMENTS TO WHICH I HAVE HAD ACCESS, THE RESULTS TO DATE HAVE BEEN PRINCIPLED….” (p. 29)
A wise Attorney General would have accepted that document and been very content with it. But Barry Penner had resigned. Shirley Bond had become the new Attorney General and received the report from President and Vice Chancellor of UBC, Stephen Toope. She decided to push the matter a little further, not content with the victory won.
She wrote a letter to Stephen Toope after receiving the Report. And she asked him a question which he publishes. President Toope should have included the whole letter from Shirley Bond, but he only included the question.
Her question, in short, asked if government employees are convicted or plead guilty, should government require that the employees pay back, (the term used is to provide â€őreimbursement” of) the money paid for their costs during the case?
President and Vice Chancellor Stephen Toope replies in no uncertain terms: the convicted should pay back. In his letter to Attorney General Shirley Bond on November 8, 2010 he writes the following:
â€ő…my view is that for criminal indemnities, conviction (including the case of a guilty plea) should trigger a claim for full reimbursement. Guilt in a criminal case necessarily means that a public servant was not acting in the scope of his or her duties or in the course of employment. No BC government employment duty can require the commission of a criminal offence. No valid purpose articulated in any report would be served by allowing indemnification in such cases, because there is no public interest in protecting the public servant from the full consequences (including financial consequences) of criminal liability.
It follows that the requirement of reimbursement in the case of criminal conviction should be mandatory and not the subject of the exercise of discretion.”
That has placed Attorney General Shirley Bond in a tough position, for her government has decided to engage in â€őthe exercise of discretion” and to pay the $6 million costs of the two men who pled guilty to criminal offences. The statements of the President and Vice Chancellor of UBC, in addition, add power to the requests of the Auditor General of B.C. for all information leading to the payment of that sum.
But Shirley Bond knows, I think, that the payment – as it stands – cannot be defended, for it was, in effect – many, many British Columbians believe – a payment of hush money, a payment to get the accused out of the courtroom, and the trial ended, before other, higher placed government and corporate officials became involved in charges of wrongdoing. The â€őexercise of discretion” in that case was used to protect the powerful wrongdoers in the BC Rail Scandal. It was undertaken to block and prevent the fair administration of justice. And so Shirley Bond, under the protestation of giving every help possible to the Auditor General, appears to be blocking every access to information about the process of agreeing to the payment.
She is the last (and the present) Attorney General since 2001. And she appears to be hip-deep in abuse of the powers of the Ministry of the Attorney General. She is keeping the foul reputation of the Gordon Campbell/Christy Clark Ministry of the Attorney General alive … and flourishing.
Since the beginning of the Gordon Campbell/Christy Clark Liberal government in B.C., it has been perfectly in accord with the ideology and practice of the Stephen Harper neoliberals in Ottawa. That is why Gordon Campbell was made Canadian High Commissioner in London after he was forced out of the premiership in B.C.
That is why Christy Clark has hired Harper aides to be her closest advisors and why she exults in photo-ops with Stephen Harper.
The soiled and disgraceful history of the Ministry of the Attorney General of B.C. since 2001 is a faithful representation of the assault on the rule of law and on the integrity of democratic government in Canada in the first 12 years of the century. Unless the direction is reversed, the country may expect deeply troubled times marked by violence and increasing class conflict.

RCMP CORRUPTION: The Lonnie Landrud Story by Arthur Topham

Corruption, particularly within police forces, be they municipal police or Canada’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), is not a new phenomenon. Neither for that matter is corruption within Canada’s judiciary system be it at the provincial or federal levels. Most people realize this who have ever had dealings with either of these two branches of government.
Coupled with corruption of course is the vital need for cover-up, be it by those working within the policing systems and the courts or, failing that, analogous media channels normally (or once normally) understood to be sources of unbiased news and information. There was a time when the mainstream media’s (msm) job was, traditionally, to investigate criminal activities of all types and expose them for the greater good of society. That was one of the fundamental reasons why democracies supposedly valued a free and independent press and media.
But, as we are now realizing, especially here in British Columbia over the past number of years, the RCMP have done a bang up job of heaping ignominy and shame upon their once highly regarded reputation within policing agencies around the world. It’s not my intent though in this article to go into the numerous cases which illustrate this fact but rather to focus on one particular, highly contentious example that up to this point has failed to receive the press and media attention that I believe it is due. I am referring to the startling and for many normal people, the almost unbelievable experience of Mr. Lonnie Lundrud which is now being presented here for readers viewing and consideration.
What was most amazing for me when I first viewed this short 7-Part YouTube series was the fact that the story had occurred right in my own backyard (Quesnel, B.C.) and still I hadn’t become aware of it until close to 5 years later after the video interview with Mr. Landrud was first put up on YouTube and this was 9 years after the alleged incident took place. On top of that I had been in the publishing business myself since 1998 and still the event somehow eluded me. Strange indeed.
Stranger still, when I began to check into some of the bizarre occurrences, was the fact that I had once had dealings with one of the murdered RCMP officers, Bev Hosker. While it was unrelated to the incident that Lonnie Landrud describes in his videos it nonetheless linked the two events, again, in unusual ways. Those events are recorded within the archives of the Quesnel Cariboo Observer’s letters section and date back to 1997.
The obvious question arose in my mind when I viewed the videos: Why was it that so few people had actually seen them over the past five years? Given their content plus the fact that the RCMP have been in the news for years now thanks to their illegal and increasingly aberrant behaviour toward the public, I found it mind-boggling that on average less than two thousand views of the full seven parts had taken place over this period of time.
Having investigated similar stories of RCMP corruption in the past as well as now covering the case of Jim Townsend which is also linked directly to malfeasance on the part of the RCMP, I felt that this story needed some added impetus to bring it further out of the shadows and into the clear light of public awareness. It’s definitely not something that makes the mounties look good in any way and it’s for that reason that they, the judicial system and the controlled media within B.C. and Canada have done their damnedest to keep this story from gaining any serious publicity. Should justice ever prevail in this instance it will not only absolve Lonnie Landrud of all the bad publicity and lies that have befallen him but it may also unearth the hidden truth about many of the young women who have disappeared along the ‘Highway of Tears’ in this area of the province over the past decade and longer. It is my contention, based upon these videos and other evidence, that the RCMP and the courts and the Crown itself are directly complicit in all of this horrible breach of justice.

The Missing Women Fiasco. British Columbia Corruption.

Reasonable people today are reading ‘The Real Story’, Ian Reid’s blog, and they’re reading ‘The Straight Goods’ blog by the Powell River Persuader (posted Feb 17, 2012). That’s where the big, important B.C. news is today. News about the looting of BC Hydro, with details; and the lying of the premier, Christy Clark, about the budget of the B.C. Court System. As well, in those reports, there is news of the painful and corrosive failure of the Mainstream Press and Media to do its job in British Columbia.
Ian Reid and the Powell River Persuader are dealing with the important news because they are talking about the real collapse of democracy and the rule of law in British Columbia. Primary issues.
The stories today spread out and take in the apparently well-meaning and apparently seriously pursued ‘Inquiry’ into the Missing (murdered) Women of Vancouver’s Downtown East End. The multiple murders were overlooked for years and years by the RCMP and the Vancouver police.
I say the ‘apparently well-meaning’ Inquiry because I don’t for a tenth of a second believe the Inquiry is well-meaning. I believe it is a huge whitewash and snow-job, a huge public relations boondoggle … costing British Columbians millions of dollars.
Begin at the beginning. The Commissioner of the Inquiry is Wally Oppal. Wally Oppal was a Supreme Court judge and an Appeals Court judge in British Columbia. He did a large Inquiry into policing in British Columbia. He jumped from the court into the Liberal Party of Gordon Campbell and became the Attorney General of the Province. Obviously he was one of the best informed law officers in the Province.
As Attorney General he spent much time in my judgement -preventing the legislature from having reasonable information through answers to questions asked in session and in the foyers of the legislature about the B.C. Rail Scandal and the connected criminal case against government aides Dave Basi, Bobby Virk, and Aneal Basi. In my opinion Oppal disgraced the position of Attorney General, made it a clown’s role and a ridiculously partisan charade. In my opinion he refused to answer perfectly acceptable questions which he had an obligation to answer as Attorney General.
WOppal
Wally Oppal. Bureaucratic bozo or bagman for the butcher?
_________________________________________________________________
But he got caught. And so we can move beyond political analysis and my opinion to fact … undoubted fact.
Wanting to make a case against the alleged bigamists in the Bountiful settlement in B.C., Oppal set to work to have a case taken against them. [I happen to believe he did so to garner approval for the Campbell government, deteriorating in public regard. Playing a political game with justice.]
The process for taking such a case is for the Attorney General to go to a distinguished private lawyer and to place the matter in his/her hands. In that way, government is saying ‘we think there is grounds here for action, but to make sure it is not seen as a political move, we place it in the hands of reputable counsel who will make the decision to proceed or not to proceed ON THE BASIS OF LAW. The Special Prosecutor we appoint will make the decision.’
Wally Oppal went to lawyer (Special Prosecutor) number one. The lawyer said don’t take a case. First Canada has to know if the Charter of Rights and Freedoms says that bigamy as an expression of Religious Faith is acceptable. No case can be fought until that matter has been decided. So Wally Oppal went to another lawyer. Wally Oppal wanted a case. The second lawyer said exactly what the first lawyer said: don’t take a case until Canada knows what the Charter of Rights and Freedoms says about bigamy as an expression of Religious Faith.
And so Wally Oppal went to another lawyer appointed as Special Prosecutor. And third time good luck for Oppal! That lawyer said that he’d take a case, now, against the Bountiful bigamists. Wally Oppal wanted action, we may believe, for political reasons not for reasons of the administration of justice.
The case against the bigamists of Bountiful began in B.C. Supreme Court. Counsel for the Defence pointed out to the judge that Wally Oppal, Attorney General of the Province, the highest law officer of the Crown, had refused the decision of two appointed Special Prosecutors, had gone around them to a third, until he had a case before her.
The judge on the case didn’t waste any time. She referred to Wally Oppal’s Special Prosecutor shopping to what was, in fact, the misuse of the whole process. And she threw the case out of court right then and there. Done.
The accused took a case against Mr. Oppal and his government and won it. The wrong done in the Wally Oppal-attempted Bountiful bigamy case was underscored.
It doesn’t matter what you or I think about the bigamy of the Bountiful community. What matters is that the Attorney General of the province, Wally Oppal, (a former judge of the Supreme Court and the Appeals Court of B.C.) was found to be attempting to have a case in the Supreme Court of B.C. that may fairly, I think, be called a rigged trial. The judge thought so, too, apparently, and threw it out, without a moment’s delay.
That event, and the case taken by the accused … and won … should have been the basis upon which all authorities in British Columbia determined that Wally Oppal had disgraced his position and his status and must never again receive an appointment of significance from the British Columbia government.
Instead, he was named to be the Commissioner to head the Inquiry into the whole history and ‘policing’ of the Downtown Eastside Missing Women. Why?
Begin at the beginning. An RCMP investigating officer told the Missing Women Inquiry on February 15 that Robert Pickton was murdering in 1991. He went on murdering until arrested more than ten years later. Dozens of women (and how many victims of Organized Crime?) were disposed of at the Pickton farm. Fed to the pigs.
And the only person who knew anything about it was Robert Pickton. Police officers allegedly drove women to the Pickton Farm parties. There were many, apparently raunchy parties. Many ‘respectable’ people attended. Some of the Downtown Eastside women disappeared and the police officers never put two and two together? Only Robert Pickton knew.
Picton
Robert Pickton Patsy for the criminal cartel?
Tips were given to police. Witnesses reported seeing evidence of violence and murder to police. Over years. Nothing was ever done. Only Robert Pickton was ever charged. Only he knew anything about the murderous activities there.
I don’t believe it.
Questions have to rear up. Were the RCMP and the Vancouver Police Department using the Pickton Farm the Pickton Death Camp as a way of cleaning the Downtown East Side of unwanted women? Did the RCMP and the Vancouver Police Department, at highest levels, know all about the activity at Pickton Farm? Did they know about and approve of Organized Crime disposing of victims at the Pickton Farm?
VanPolice
Vancouver’s finest. Collusion or simply inept?
Those are questions that should be a major focus of any Inquiry into the history of the Missing (murdered) Downtown Eastside women.
Questions. Questions. What were the police connections with Robert Pickton? What were the connections of the police with the Pickton Farm Party Goers? The names of all the people who attended there? The connections of police to criminal elements wishing to use the farm for criminal purposes? Their names? The names of people (police officers and others) who transported women to the farm and to its parties? Bring forward the names of officers who were given information and who rejected search and inquiry with the thoroughly investigated names of all their non-police connections? What are the names of people guilty of failing to do their duty? What is the full story of DNA on the farm not connected to missing women but connected to victims of organized crime?
Certainly the Commissioner should be preparing to recommend further criminal investigation, charges, and heavy disciplinary actions.
Don’t be silly. That is not what Wally Oppal wants to do. As Ian Mulgrew, Vancouver Sun columnist (Feb 16, 2012, p. A5) tells us: ‘The former justice wants to write a report that addresses the problems created by B.C.’s patchwork policing structure, the structural cracks that hampered homicide and missing-women cases and the need to build better relationships between the police and the community, especially with the minority aboriginal population.’
The former justice, in effect, wants to write a report that will cost millions of dollars and that will (we may predict) be put aside and have absolutely no effect on policing in the province. But it will have served to get those who want justice done off the backs of the government and its friends.
Mulgrew (as if taking dictation from some of the people who appointed Wally Oppal) goes on to tell his readers that ‘Granted, it [will not be] the kind of self-righteous report denouncing the cops and prosecutors so many, many critics would like….’
Stop.
Why suddenly is a strong desire for justice and fairness on the part of British Columbians ‘self-righteous’? I believe it is called self-righteous by Ian Mulgrew because I believe his aim in the column is to get people in the Inquiry away from asking really pertinent questions and on to asking, instead, empty, vapid, useless questions that can be answered in an empty, vapid, useless Report written by the Commissioner who never should have been appointed in the first place.
Ian Mulgrew has never, to my knowledge, questioned (as he should have) the appointment of Wally Oppal as Commissioner. When he refers to legitimate demands participants are making to know about culpability, to hear important witnesses, to get full police disclosure, to see the apparently, suddenly non-existent police notes of meetings and activities, to hold real individuals to account for failures of professionalism, he brushes them aside as irrelevant to the Inquiry as it has been set up.
IanMulgrew
Ian Mulgrew airbrush hack cover-up artist for Canada’s controlled msm
Ian Mulgrew should be asking why the Inquiry wasn’t set up to do a real job. He should be asking what is going on with a multi-million dollar Inquiry that is bent on avoiding the most important questions and (apparently) covering up for police forces and others connected to police who failed dramatically, demonstrably, and shamefully to do their fundamental duty to society.
He is showing himself a perfect member of the Mainstream Press and Media in British Columbia, in my judgement failing monumentally in the task a law reporter should undertake. That task is to see through all the smoke and mirrors, all the fake and frivolous appointments, all the prepared cover-ups and to report the facts to the readers without fear or favour.
But that kind of work is rarely done by any Mainstream journalist in British Columbia.
By some kind of journalistic accident (for B.C.) Sam Cooper revealed in the Feb 10 Victoria Times Colonist how a major question in the Inquiry was squashed and pushed aside by Commissioner Wally Oppal. It had to do with an RCMP corporal admitting he was tipped off that a Hells Angels associate ‘was chopped up in a meat grinder on the [Pickton] farm and fed to the pigs.’(page A9). That tip was not investigated.
HellsAngels
Equally as strangely, Sam Cooper writes in his story, ‘lawyer Jason Gratl was shut down by Commissioner Wally Oppal’, and ‘Oppal cut in, telling Gratl he did not see the relevance of the Hell’s angels questioning, and asked the government lawyer if she would like to rise to object’.
When the presiding officer asks someone if he or she wants to rise to protest … you know what’s happening. The presiding officer is determined to stop the questioning one way or another. Why would Inquiry Commissioner Wally Oppal want to cut off very serious questions about the relation of Organized Crime to the Pickton Farm murders? Why?
Bill Hiscox, who tipped police off early in the troubles said as Sam Cooper reports it in the Times Colonist ‘investigating officers like Conner ‘had their hands tied’ by ‘higher ups’’.
Okay. British Columbians want to know all about that. Which higher ups? And why didn’t investigating officers like Conner refuse to have their hands tied? And why aren’t those people going to be recommended for serious discipline or criminal charges?
British Columbians may be assured, I believe, that those people will not be dealt with, and British Columbians will not be told anything about those things if Wally Oppal can help it. And they may be assured, I believe, that Ian Mulgrew will do everything he can to support Wally Oppal in not telling anything important.
British Columbians may be almost perfectly sure that Ian Mulgrew will go on writing columns like the one he wrote on February 16, a column that legitimizes a know-nothing, do-nothing Inquiry.
Look at the larger picture. Look at it.
Millions upon millions of your dollars are being spent to cover up, I insist, the real events and the people, beside Robert Pickton, responsible in the Pickton Farm murders.
Millions and millions of your dollars were spent, many believe, to cover up the people really guilty of Criminal Breach of Trust in the BC Rail Scandal and in the connected trial of the three accused, lower-order aides in the Basi, Virk, and Basi trial. The RCMP formally refused to investigate Gordon Campbell and others responsible for the corrupt transfer of BC Rail to the CNR (which happened when premier Christy Clark was deputy premier of the province).
The Auditor General of B.C. had to go to court to get information that should have been handed him without delay on the spending in the BC Rail Scandal case and he is still investigating.
Millions and millions of dollars of your money have been looted from B.C. Hydro in ‘accounting’ shifts that almost certainly would eventuate in charges, at least, of Criminal Breach of Trust, I believe. The Auditor General of B.C. has in fact condemned, for years, the so-called book-keeping of B.C Hydro.
Nothing is being investigated in BC Hydro by any police forces in British Columbia.
BC Ferries has been ‘privatized’. The word to describe what has been done might better be ‘criminalized’. Millions of your dollars have been looted, misspent, otherwise ‘relocated’ and no police force in British Columbia is investigating.
But all is not lost! Vancouver Police Chief Jim Chu spurred on by an apparently revenge-seeking Christy Clark who wants an on-going movie made of the trials is spending millions and millions of your dollars to try dumb, reckless, stupid ‘rioters’ after the Stanley Cup game. Those people are not ‘criminal’ in anything like the serious way almost all the others being protected are, who are almost certainly criminals, hard at their work.
Almost all the people Jim Chu is spending millions of your dollars to squeeze through the over-crowded and failing court system would never break the law again in their lives if left alone. That one dumb night of folly would be their ‘criminal’ history.
What we are seeing, I’m afraid, is the 1% and their servants beating up on the 99% to make it look as if Law and Justice are being served in British Columbia. Instead Law and Justice are being fouled, distorted, suborned, erased, trampled upon and made to serve the very kinds of criminal they were set up to apprehend and remove from society.
The big news today is about the looting of B.C. Hydro, on the blog of the Powell River Persuader. And it’s about the lying of premier Christy Clark regarding the funding to the courts of British Columbia, on the blog of Ian Reid.
The real story about the Inquiry into the Missing (murdered) Women of the Vancouver Downtown East Side is interesting. But it’s a secondary story today.
Or is it…?

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird Grovels in Obesience Before Zionism’s Greatest Hoax of the 20th Century

[Editor’s Note: This disgusting, seditious and monumental show of abject, grandiose groveling before Zionism’s Number 1 lie of the 20th Century by Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird must be addressed and exposed. Just the sight of this traitorous, ignorant, two-faced hypocrite bowing down before the new altar of the Synagogue of Satan (the ‘Holocaust’ memorials) while representing the Canadian nation is enough to make me want to regurgitate my dinner right on my computer screen!
Were I in that god-forsaken dungeon of deception and misery called ‘Yad Vashem’ I’d likely be coming up behind this sycophantic clown with his little black beanie and booting him square in the ass so that he’d be lying there fully prostrate like the slavering scumbag that he is and then telling him in no uncertain terms to get his bigoted, blasphemous butt out of that monument to Mammon and back to Canada where he could then be tried for treason, removed from office and sent packing back to the Land of Lies to carry on his demented dirty work for Israel.
What a bloody spectacle of abject subservience to the world’s foremost racist, terrorist nation on the part of a Canadian foreign minister! Just how goddam obsequious, demeaned and degraded is the Canadian government expected to become in order to show the rest of the world that we’ve lost all semblance of self-respect and dignity in the face of PM Stephen Harper’s overly glaring and transparent bid to convince this reprehensibly rogue, blood-drenched reprobate pseudo state, that ‘There is no better friend to Israel than Canada.’?
I, for one (and most likely for many more self-respecting Canadians), find it extremely difficult to even put into words the degree of outrage and humiliation that I feel upon seeing this type of behaviour exhibited by a member of my government in the face of all that this predatory, Zionist entity has committed against the global commons in the name of power, control, greed, usury, racism and out and out perverse psychopathy.
I can only hope and pray that other true and patriotic Canadians might also feel the depth of disgust that I’m feeling when I look upon this sordid show of surreal ugliness that the Harper government is doing its damnedest to bequeath to the present and future generations of Canadians.
I’m sure that Minister John Baird will most likely have more foreign affairs while he spends his time and taxpayers money being feted and blackmailed into further extremes of Zionist malfeasance as he continues his indoctrination into the Zionist Jew lies that support their ongoing and heinous treachery toward the Arab peoples of Palestine and the Middle East in general.
But along with Baird’s buffoonery and traitorous suck-holing to Israhell we must never forget for a single moment that this sort of chicanery and Zionist propaganda on the part of the Harper government would not likely achieve its aims and purposes if it weren’t for the malicious intent and seditious behaviour of our so-called ‘Canadian Press,’ another lie of magnanimous proportions. Until the day comes when the majority of Canadians realize that ‘their’ media is in truth Israel’s installed propaganda system we shall continue to be subjected to these gross and misleading ‘news’ articles that have but one purpose: to brainwash Canadians and turn this former sovereign nation into yet another subservient Zionist satellite.]

Israel has `no better friend in the world than Canada,’ John Baird says
JERUSALEM: Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird kicked off his first full day in Israel by attending the opening of a new Holocaust education facility in Jerusalem.
Baird says the new seminars wing of the International School for Holocaust Education at Yad Vashem will play a key role in ensuring humanity doesn’t forget the lessons of genocide.
And he says Israel has no better friend in the world than Canada.
Baird and Finance Minister Jim Flaherty will spend the next several days visiting Israel and the Palestinian territories.
The campus holds seminars each year for educators from 55 countries around the world and Israel, and develops country-specific and custom-made tools for different age groups in more than 20 languages.
Jewish philanthropist Joseph Gottdenker, himself a Holocaust survivor, says Yad Vashem gives a voice and a name to each person who perished, ‘and restores to them the dignity of living history.’
‘Holocaust education enables us to remember the lessons of the past and provides guidance to a more tolerant, hopeful and brighter future,’ Gottdenker said.
In 2011, the school hosted 67 seminars for educators and lay leaders around the world, twice the numbers held in recent years.
Baird, a black skull cap perched on his head, emphasized the importance of Yad Vashem and its new 4,100-square-metre facility in documenting and teaching the lessons of the Holocaust.
‘There is no better friend to Israel than Canada,’ Baird said. ‘We shall always be there for you, and in front of you.’

Why the Nazis had to be stopped, by George Jonal NP December 21, 2011 A Response from Ian V. Macdonald

Subject: Why the Nazis had to be stopped, by George Jonas NP December 21, 2011
December 25, 2011
Editor
National Post
Toronto
Dear Sir,
National Socialism good or evil?
George Jonas proudly quotes (NP Dec.21) from an earlier column in which he wrote that ‘‘Nazism’ had to be stopped, not to make the world better but to prevent the world from being infinitely worse’. In the light of events, it appears that Mr Jonas has allowed his partisanship to blind him to reality.
National Socialism outclassed by light years all other forms of government at the time, bringing freedom, prosperity, pride, full employment and unparalleled worker benefits to Germany despite an intense Jewish boycott and deep world-wide depression. The Leader of the National Socialist Party, although labeled a ‘dictator’ by the vindictive Western media, in fact earned enthusiastic support throughout Germany and admiration from statesmen in other countries, including Canada where Prime Minister Mackenzie King, after meeting Hitler in mid-1937, wrote of him in adulatory terms and recommended that his example should be followed in all other countries. Hitler’s expulsion of the Jews, however benevolent by modern standards, was widely condemned by World Jewry and by Western politicians responding to the demands of their vengeful Jewish paymasters, then as now.
As for the world being a better place (because we rid the world of 12 million good Christian Germans and destroyed Germany instead of our real enemy, the bloodthirsty Stalin regime) history thoroughly refutes the Jonas claim.
Had we taken Germany’s side, or at least remained neutral, the defeat of Stalin, whose fiendishly sadistic Jewish Kommissars had already murdered up to 30 million Christians, would have been a forgone conclusion. Stalin’s terrified subjects would have been freed to rebuild their respective nations under friendly Western hegemony, Eastern Europe would not have been enslaved, 50 million lives would have been spared, priceless German architecture would still exist, trillions of dollars could have been diverted to the benefit of mankind, there would have been no Korean nor Vietnam Wars, no decolonization chaos, no Rabbi tax scams, China would have evolved along Taiwanese lines, the costly Cold War would have been averted, Six Million or more Jews would have been safely ensconced in a tropical paradise, the Holy Land would have remained Holy, with Jerusalem under international control, Western politicians would represent the interests of their constituents, not those of an avaricious, subversive, corrupting, disloyal alien Lobby.
With no Israel, their would have been no refugee problem, no Six Day War, no illegal occupation, no costly invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan with their countless civilian casualties, no acquisitive criminal banksters, no Madoff-style frauds, no 9/11, no mega international crime centre, no serial assassinations, no constant threat of WWIII and best of all, no Third World invasions that in the long term will prove far more destructive of our traditions, freedom and peace of mind than any German influence. Some will say ‘all very well, but look what Hitler did to the Jews?’ An astute, intrepid German might reply, ‘but look what the Jews did to us’ and he now might add, if he dared, ‘and to the rest of the world’.
Hitler saw the impossibility of achieving true sovereignty so long as Jews controlled the country’s business, banking and media, owned virtually all commercial real estate and dominated the legal and medical professions as well as the universities. He also saw the declaration of war in 1933 by World Jewry as problematical and dealt decisively with the security issue that it posed.
The ‘Jewish Problem’ in North America today is eerily similar but, ominously, much more advanced than that prevailing in Germany in the early ‘thirties. It is thus potentially far more explosive, kept in check only through virtually complete control of the government, the media, finance, the judiciary and education system which has reached scandalous, increasingly indefensible proportions.
George Jonas should be challenged to provide us with an outline of how worse the world would look today had we taken the side of our righteous, compatible, enterprising, Christian German kin against the diabolical Stalin, instead of attacking them to the exclusive benefit of our Zionist and Stalinist enemies.
As ever,

THANK YOU CANADA AND NATO: You Murdered My Precious Family

[Editor’s Note: By the time I had put together all the photos, uploaded them and got the text of the article checked over I was pretty well exhausted and overcome emotionally and mentally by a gnawing, nauseating sense of the grossly sordid and evil nature of what Canadian has done to the innocent, gentle people of Libya. I have never felt so ashamed of my country in my entire 65 years of living here. The utter disgust and loathing that I now feel for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and all those MPs who voted to go along with the criminal, Zionist-controlled North Atlantic Terrorist Organization (NATO) agenda of war and destruction goes beyond any descriptive words that I could possibly dredge up from the darkest, foulest thesaurus in existence.
Harper’s actions, as the so-called â€őleader” of this once semi-civilized nation, have so degraded the country in the eyes of the non-NATO world that I am literally embarrassed to call Canada my home any longer. Such absolute repugnance for another human being I never thought possible until the reality of what he and his governing party of psychopathic war criminals have done to the once prosperous and peaceful nation of Libya finally sunk in to my heart and mind.
I can only wonder and stand in awe and silence at the horrible intensity of grief that Khaled El Hamedi must feel knowing that his precious, loved, pregnant wife and his sweet, darling babies were all blow to pieces in a split second because of the monstrously evil and deliberately vile terrorist decisions of our elected officials in Ottawa. And I include every single one of those miserable excuses for members of parliament who never spoke out against Harper and his Zionist, boot-licking traitorous sycophants.
Every MP in Ottawa who didn’t have the courage and heart to vote against the decision to join NATO in its wanton killing spree stands accused of complicity in committing war crimes. Each and every one of them ought to be arrested and then given a fair and just trial and hopefully found guilty. And once convicted the whole worthless lot of them should either be strung up from the nearest and tallest tree available on Parliament Hill or else sent to Iraq or Libya or Afghanistan to spend the remainder of their destitute days doing penance by having to remove, bare handed, all the DU contaminated rubble now littering the landscape of those innocent nations!
This former nation of â€őpeacekeepers” Canada has, thanks to the criminal insanity of the Harper Conservatives and their lackeys, plummeted to the lowest depths of demonic depravity ever and those responsible for this degeneracy deserve to be treated by all peace-loving, decent Canadians as a hostile, renegade, traitorous and alien power.
Never has this country ever had such a sick mind leading it. If Harper were a dog it would be time to put him out of his misery. It’s little wonder that he’s forever suck-holing and groveling at the feet of the leader of that racist, war-mongering shitty little piece of stolen real estate in the middle of Palestine called â€őIsrael”. Between himself and his unctuous, fat-assed side-kick Jason Kenney they’ve both managed to drag the (now) bloodstained country I once proudly called home down to the same gut-wrenching, nauseous level of savagery as the psychopaths from Tel Aviv.
At this point all I can say is WAKE UP CANADA! Wake up before this seditiously sick, Zionist-worshipping excuse for a human being destroys Canada once and for all. And yes, I know my words may appear to some unduly harsh but God knows they are all I have available at this point to voice the intense loathing for what this national disgrace has done to my former democratic, peace-loving nation. We once held in our hands a priceless pearl of beauty and now this traitor in Ottawa has thrown it to the swine of deception, greed, murder and destruction.]

Return to Sorman Anatomy of a NATO war crime
Franklin Lamb
Sorman, Libya
It was a warm early Monday morning along the Libyan coast on June 20, 2011.
At approximately 0200 GMT the next day in NATO Headquarters in Brussels and 30 minutes later in its media center in Naples, staffers finished tabulating NATO’s 92nd day of aerial attacks on Libya and began to post the data on its website (www.nato.int).
Nato
Twenty four hours earlier an Atlantic Alliance command unit, located approximately 30 miles off the Libyan coast, in a direct line with Malta, and NATO’s targeting unit had signed off on 49 bombing missions for June 20th, the last day of spring and the last day of NATO’s original UN bombing mandate.
Tripoli
NATO carnage in Tripoli
The authority for NATO’s bombing, which far exceeded earlier estimates, killing or wounding of between 90,000-120,000 Libyans and foreigners, and the displacement of more than two million Libyans and foreign workers was claimed from the hastily adopted UN Security Council Resolutions 1970 and UNSCR 1973. UN resolutions 1970 & 1973 gave NATO UN Chapter 7 authority to enforce a no-fly zone over Libyan airspace, initially for 90 days which ironically ended the day before its bombing at Sorman.
The two UN Security Council Resolutions were insisted upon by their main sponsors, France, the UK, Italy and the US who claimed that ”a limited no-fly zone would protect Libya’s civilian population from the wrath of the government of Libya’s leader, Muammar Gadhafi.” NATO requested and was granted two additional 90 days extensions to continue its Libyan mission which gave its air force until the end of 2011 to continue Operation Unified Protector.
It was early Monday morning, June 20, 2011.
google of sabatha
Sorman Libya. A quiet and peaceful Libyan town, Sorman is located 45 miles west of Tripoli, near the Mediterranean coast, in the Zawiya District of the Tripolitania region in northwestern Libya. Many of the town’s children grew up exploring the 3rd Century truly magnificent Roman Ruins at nearby Sabratha.
sabratha
Some archeologists consider Sabratha, located almost in direct line with Rome across the Mediterranean, and built on a high cliff above the sea, as the most complete extant Roman architecture with only a small part of this large Roman city having been excavated. This observer has visited Sabratha a few times since the mid-1980 and each visit presents more awe. Families from Sorman and nearby villages regularly visit and picnic there.
In the early hours of June 20, 2011 it was dark in Sorman except for some muted half-moon light. A few dim street lights and some partially illumined homes in provided some light as residents began to rise and prepare for the Al Fajr (â€őDawn”) prayers.
Khaled el Hamedi
Khaled El Hamedi, President of the International Organization
for Peace, Care and Relief
At the homestead of Khaled K. El Hamedi, the 37 year old President of the International Organization for Peace, Care & Relief (IOPCR), one of Libya’s most active social service organizations everyone was asleep following a rambunctious birthday party for his three year old son. The Hamedi family members included Khaled’s three year and one day old son Khweldi, four and one half year old daughter Khaleda, his beautiful pregnant wife Safa, his aunt Najia, and his six year old niece Salam, among others.
At NATO’s Control and Command Center, the 49 bombing missions planned for early morning of June 20, included a target at Sorman, which would push the number of NATO reconnaissance sorties over Libya to 11,930. This number would become 26,500 by midnight on October 31, when NATO would end its air campaign. The days bombing sorties would also bring the tally of rocket and bombing targets to 4,521. This figure would increase to more than 11,781 by late fall, when NATO was instructed to end OUP (Operation Unified Protector).
NATO’s prepares to bomb Dorman’s â€őcommand and control center”
Before the bombs were fired at Khaled K. el-Hamedi compound, NATO staff conducted a six step process the first of which was surveillance using the MQ-9 Reaper UAV, which sometimes is also used to fire missiles. Also above Sorman was the Predator drone with full-motion video. During June 19 and the early hours of June 20, the drones locked on the Hamedi homestead target and relayed updated information to NATO’s command center.
The Hamedi home was not what NATO labels a â€őtime-critical target” so there was plenty of time for its staff to transmit information about the site from unmanned reconnaissance aircraft to intelligence analysts. Almost certainly, according to a source at Jane’s Weekly, NATO UAV’s watched the Hamedi compound over a period of days and presumably observed part of the birthday party being held for three old Huweldi, the day before the order to bomb was issued.
NATO Rules of Engagement for Operation United Protector, constitute a set of classified documents which present specific and detailed instructions about what is a legitimate target and who can approve the target, whether pre-planned or â€őon the fly” when a pilot happens upon a target of opportunity.
The Sorman attack on the Hamedi home was planned as part of what NATO calls its â€őJoint Air Tasking Cycle (JATC). A target development team put the Hamedi home on the June 20th daily list of targets.
The team used a report from NATO intelligence analysts who determined that retired officer Khaled al Hamedi’s father, one of the original members of the Gadhafi led 1969 coup against King Idris in 1969, and a former member of the Al Fatah Revolution’s Revolutionary Command Council was living on the property. His assassination had been ordered by NATO because they hoped to weaken the regime in some way even though the senior Hamedi was retired and had no decision making role in Libya.
On June 19, the day before bombing attack on the Hamedi family at Sorman, NATO was obliged by its own regulations and by the international law of armed conflict to conduct aâ€őpotential for collateral damage review” of this mission.
There is no evidence that this was every done.
A requested US Congressional NATO Liaison Office review of the Sorman bombing, initially requested from Libya on August 2, was completed in early September 2011 and found no documentary evidence or other indication that Bouchard or anyone in NATO’s Target Selection Unit, evaluated, discussed, or even considered the subject of potential civilian casualties at the Hamedi home in Sorman.
Following Bouchard’s green light to bomb the Hamedi home, the coordinates were fixed at 32°45′24″N 12°34′18″E . Specific aim points on the Hamedi property were chosen and eight bombs and missiles were readied and attached to the strike aircraft.
At Sorman, NATO used a variety of bombs and missiles including the â€őbunker busting” BLU-109 (Bomb Live Unit) which is designed to penetrate 18 feet of concrete. NATO also used the American MK series of 500 lb, (MK 81) 1000 lb, (MK-82) and the 2000 lb (MK-84) that Israel used so widely during its 2006 invasion of Lebanon. The MK series and the BLU-109 are reportedly being stockpiled in Israel is preparation for both countries anticipated next war in this region.
BunkerBuster
Following the infernal at Sorman, NATO denied responsibility but the next day NATO admitted carrying out an air strike somewhere in Sorman but denied that there were civilian deaths even as its drones filmed the scene close up. NATO’s media office in Naples issued a statement claiming â€őA precision air strike was launched against a high-level command and control node in the Sorman area without collateral damage.” NATO spokespersons also told Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch that â€őthe facility was a legitimate military target and that all necessary precautions were taken before conducting the strike which minimized any potential risk of causing unnecessary casualties’.
The official NATO record of its bombing of Libya for June 20, 2011 reads as follows and remains unchanged:
â€őAllied Joint Force Command NAPLES, SHAPE, NATO HQ.
Over the past 24 hours, NATO has conducted the following activities associated with Operation UNIFIED PROTECTOR:
Air Operations Sorties conducted 20 JUNE: 149
Strike sorties conducted 20 JUNE: 52
Key Hits
20 JUNE: In the vicinity of Tripoli: 1 Command & Control Node, 8 Surface-To-Air Missile Launchers,
1 Surface-To-Air Missile Transport Vehicle. In the vicinity of Misratah: 3 Truck-Mounted Guns, 2 Self-
Propelled Anti-Aircraft Guns, 1 Tank. In the vicinity of Tarhunah: 1 Military Equipment Storage Facility. In the vicinity of Al-Khums: 1 Military Vehicle Storage Facility. In the vicinity of Zintan: 1 Rocket Launcher.”
Oddly, NATO records for June 20th as well as subsequent reports of bombing attacks listed for June 20th and June 21st in its daily logs have never included the bombing attack on Sorman or the attack on the Al-Hamedi residence which indisputably killed 15 civilians.
Just before the bombs hit, eye witnesses, reported seeing red specks in the sky and then flashes of intense light, immediately followed by thunderous ear splitting blasts as eight American bombs and rockets pulverized their neighbors homestead.
In an instant Khaled El Hamedi’s family was dead. The children were crushed, blown apart or shredded into pieces, along with friends and extended family members who had slept overnight.
The attack resulted in killing a total of 13 people and injuring 6 people with severe injuries:
Killed:
1 – Eng./ Safa Ahmed Mahmoud, wife of Eng. Khaled El Hamedi
2 Child / Khaleda Khaled El Khweldi El Hamedi (4 and half years). (Daughter)
3 Child / El Khweldi Khaled El Khweldi El Hamedi (3 years and one day ). ( Son)
4 Child / Salam Mohamed Nouri El Hamedi (6 years). the niece of Eng. Khaled ElHamedi

2- Mrs. Khweldi El Hamedi badly injured in her arms and joints (Mother )
3- Msra Khweldi El Hamedi, student at Medical College, badly injured and had a

4- Ayaa Mahmoud ( Cousin )
5- Fathiya , badly injured and lost her leg ( Babysitter from Morocco)
6- Moftah Elgmatti , several injuries in his legs and had a number of operations (driver)
Khaled was working late, attending meetings with displaced Libyans driven from their homes and urgently in need of IOPCR help. As he returned home, Khaled saw from his car window the sky light up and heard exploding bombs. He was frozen in horror as he entered his property and observed rescue workers frantically digging and futilely trying to move the thick concrete slabs of his home hoping against hope that they would miraculously find survivors.
Funeral
HamediHouseDestr
KhalidMourning
Libyan government spokesman Mousa Ibrahim announced the death of 13 people, including six children, who were killed at Sorman. He slammed the NATO bombing as a ‘cowardly terrorist act which cannot be justified.’ Investigators, who visited Sibratha hospital 10 kilometers from Sorman, saw nine bodies, including three young children. They also saw body parts including a child’s head.
For those who visited the El Hamidi family compound back in June following the NATO bombings, as this observer did less than a week after the crime as part of an international delegation, the scene was one of total devastation.
Collapsed and blown apart concrete and tiled homes, small body parts, and bits of family belongings and memorabilia, trees, some blown over, others bending and nearly denuded of their foliage, dead, terrified and dying petting zoo animals, including exotic birds, Ostrich, Deer, small animals and large moose killed or left near death and most in a blind stupor staring blankly from what remained of their shelters while dying of wounds and from trauma.
HamediBombedHome
Outside one of the bombed houses I noticed crushed cartons of spaghetti pasta and cans of tomato sauce, stockpiled for distribution to the needy as part of the work of IOPCR during the summer and in preparation for the coming Holy month of Ramadan observances which includes doing performing charitable works and individual humanitarian acts.
Under growing pressure from the international community including NATO member states, NATO HQ claimed equipment malfunction, missed target, poor intelligence and pilot errors. Finally US Defense secretaries Gates and his replacement, Leon Panetta admitted that NATO lacked effective intelligence on the ground to identify military targets with certainty. Former Defense Secretary Gates, in criticizing NATO’s operation in Libya implied that NATO used a ‘bomb first ask questions later’ paradigm in Libya. And this appears to have been the case.
These excuses in no way absolve NATO and its 28 NATO member states of responsibility.
Canadian Lieutenant General Charles Bouchard insists to this day that only Libya’s military was targeted: ‘This important strike will greatly degrade Gadhafi regime forces’ ability to carry on their barbaric assault against the Libyan people,” he told the media from his office in Brussels. The civilian deaths at Sorman came just hours after NATO acknowledged that one of its missiles had gone astray early on Sunday, hitting a residential neighborhood of Tripoli.
At the request of Khaled El Hamedi, himself being sought by Libya’s new government, and aware that I was going to return to Sorman, I felt honored as I made my way to his loved ones’ grave sites on the family homestead where he and I first met, in order to deliver a message from him to his loved ones.
Picking my way through debris in the dark, under the cold and suspicious eyes of a couple of local militiamen, I stood at the same spot, where on June 27th his family’s freshly dug graves bore witness to what Khaled was describing to our shocked delegation concerning the details of the horror and hellfire that NATO unleashed upon his family.
Back in June I had moved to the rear of our group as Khaled spoke to us about the loss of his babies, his beauties and his precious pregnant wife. I was embarrassed because for some reason, uncontrollable tears would not stop streaming down my face and, despite averting my eyes, I saw that Khaled noticed. I was touched when this young man, to whom I was a total stranger, came to me and put his arm around my shoulder in comfort. Clearly he understood that each of us can feel the pain of others, even of strangers, as well as connect them with our own losses of loved ones in life.
Later, as I learned more about Khaled’s family and saw their most expressive and revealing photos, I came to believe that with respect to the wanton criminal aggression that caused thousands of needless deaths of innocents over the period of nearly nine months against this simple, gentle society, that Najia, Safa, Salam, Khaleda, and Khweldi, and the others slaughtered at Sorman, are forever iconic representatives of all the innocent civilians who were slaughtered in Libya since March 2011.
During my recent visit to Sorman, I stood at the same location as last June. I surveyed the area and then approached the graves of Najia, Safa, Salam, Khaleda, and Khweldi. In the cold darkness it was and the piles of rubble still in place it was eerie.
I knelt close, felt a strange source of warmth and looked over my shoulder.
I whispered in the silent night that I had a message from your loving Husband, Father, Uncle and Nephew that he asked me to deliver to you.
I read to them the message entrusted to me. And I left a copy in Arabic, pinned to a bouquet of flowers:
The message read:
â€őPlease say a very big hello to them and tell them I am coming.
Please tell them â€őI won’t leave you alone
And I miss each of you so very much.”
And please write them each a note.
Najia, Safa, Salam, Khaleda, and Khweldi.
Franklin, Tell them, â€őYou are my life.
You are my love.
I miss you very, very much.
Life without you is so painful, so hard and completely empty.
I won’t stay and live away from you. I promise.
I’ll return and be close to you. Baba will be back.
I love you.
As I made my way back to the main road in search of a taxi, a militiaman stopped me and interrogated me about why I was there, confiscated my camera and ordered me to leave the area at once.
I paused for a moment and looked back toward what had been a loving family home, a petting zoo and bird sanctuary that had delighted the children in this neighborhood.
A little boy and girl, perhaps siblings, maybe six or seven years old, approached me with their Ethiopian nanny and asked: â€őWien, (where is) Khaleda? Wien Khweldi? metta yargeoun ila Al Bayt (when will they come home?)
â€őWhen will they come home?”
Unable to speak, I kissed and patted their sweet heads and continued on my way.
——
Nato’s child victims
Khaled K. Al-Hamedi is strong, deeply religious, and fatalistic. He has pledged to family and friends around the world that he will continue his work with the International Organization for Peace, Care & Relief in spite of the life shattering loss of his loved ones.
An honorable family, a peaceful and welcoming town, a devastated country, and a shocked and angry international community demand justice from those who sent ‘Unified Protector’ and NATO’s no-fly zone to destroy Libya in order to â€őprotect the civilian population.”

Canada clamps down on Israel criticism

epa02653348 Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper speaks with reporters on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Canada, on 25 March 2011. Harper’s Conservative government fell today after a contempt of Parliament motion. EPA/PATRICK DOYLE

Dear Radical Reader,
The world is still bewitched to a great degree by the mesmerizing effects of the vipers who control the mainstream media and, by default, the thoughts, ideas, impressions, images and political perspectives of the general public.
Those, such as the despicable, disgusting traitors and groveling sycophantic sell-outs to Jewish Israeli greed, power and racism pictured below, are exemplary models of the type of political ‘leader’ that the Zionist behemoth surreptitiously fabricates and then sells to the stupefied electorate via their Big Brother media.
One of most vile of all of course is the two-faced, bigot, hypocrite and seditious Irwin Cotler former Liberal head honcho over the Supreme Court of Canada. He’s the head snake, slithering about the halls of parliament and wending his way into every nook and cranny and committee like some latter day Chaim Weizmann laying out the groundwork for this latest assault upon Canada and our rights as free, democratic citizens.

By their fruits shall ye know them as the Christian good book tells us and in the case of these two unabashed buffoons the thought that they might somehow be actual Canadian nationalists with at least a modicum of sovereignty in their souls is beyond comprehension. Like two rotten apples purposely placed in that basket of bungling bureaucracy known as Ottawa they are doing their damnedest to turn the whole carton of potentially pro-Israeli cretins into one rotten heap of corruption.

As my own anti-Zionist Jewish mother-in-law (God bless her soul) use to say, ‘Enough already!’ Enough of this endless stinking shit the Jew-controlled media calls ‘news’ and ‘public opinion’ and ‘parliamentary committees’ and ‘anti-Semitism.’ These wankers of pseudo-wisdom and ‘democracy’ and ‘freedom’ need to be exposed for what they really are: TRAITORS AND LIARS AND WAR CRIMINALS FOR THE RACIST, APARTHEID, SUPREMACIST, ZIONIST-JEW, FALSE STATE KNOWN AS ISRAEL.
Like all the other Zionist Jew crooks and criminals and frauds who are tumbling out of their darkened closets almost daily now these pitiful examples of the human species need to be exposed in as many venues and ways as possible.
One way would be to pass this post along to everyone you know.

Canada clamps down on Israel criticism.
July 22, 2011
HarperTraitor
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a staunch supporter of Israeli policy, has described criticism of Israeli as a form of ”new anti-Semitismâ€ő.
Nearly two years after the first hearings were held in Ottawa, the Canadian Parliamentary Committee to Combat Anti-Semitism (CPCCA) released a detailed report on July 7 that found that anti-Semitism is on the rise in Canada, especially on university campuses.
While the CPCCA’s final report does contain some cases of real anti-Semitism, the committee has provided little evidence that anti-Semitism has actually increased in Canada in recent years. Instead, it has focused a disproportionate amount of effort and resources on what it calls a so-called â€őnew anti-Semitism”: criticism of Israel.
Indeed, the real purpose of the CPCCA committee seems to be to stifle critiques of Israeli policy and disrupt pro-Palestinian solidarity organizing in Canada, including, most notably, Israeli Apartheid Week events. Many of the CPCCA’s findings, therefore, must be rejected as both an attack on freedom of speech and freedom of protest, and as recklessly undermining the fight against real instances of anti-Semitism.
The CPCCA and its findings
The Canadian Parliamentary Committee to Combat Anti-Semitism (CPCCA) was born out of a conference held in London in February 2009 by the Inter-Parliamentary Committee for Combating Anti-Semitism. Formed in March 2009 and not directly linked to the Canadian government, or to any NGO or advocacy group, the CPCCA included 22 Canadian Parliament members from across party lines. Former Liberal MP Mario Silva chaired the Inquiry Panel and Conservative MP Scott Reid led the Steering Committee.
Between November 2009 and January 2010, the CPCCA held ten separate hearings during which time representatives of various non-governmental organizations, religious institutions, police departments and Canadian and Israeli universities presented papers meant to assess the level of anti-Semitism in Canada. While groups critical of Israel were denied the chance to address the committee, major Zionist organizations like B’nai Brith Canada, Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies, and the Canadian Jewish Congress were welcomed.
â€őMuch of today’s anti-Semitism manifests in anti-Israel agitation around boycotts, divestment and sanctions,” said Avi Benlolo, President and CEO of the Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies, during a hearing in November 2009. â€őIt deploys an unfair double standard against the Jewish state, singling out of Israel alone for one-sided, harsh criticism and calls for punitive actions.”
Throughout the consultation process, the CPCCA regularly focused on Canadian university campuses, which were routinely described as hotbeds of anti-Semitism, where Jewish students or students with pro-Israel leanings are often intimidated and threatened. This accusation was made repeatedly, and included in the CPCCA’s final report, despite the fact that Dr. Fred Lowy, President Emeritus of Concordia University in Montreal, stated in his address to the CPCCA that, â€őby and large, Canadian campuses are safe and are not hotbeds of anti-Semitism of any kind”.
In its final report, the CPCCA made about two dozen recommendations on how best to fight anti-Semitism in Canada. While the report states that â€őcriticism of Israel is not anti-Semitic, and saying so is wrong”, it also found that â€ősingling Israel out for selective condemnation and opprobrium … is discriminatory and hateful” and many of its recommendations deal with combating this â€őnew anti-Semitism”.
A major recommendation issued by the CPCCA was that the Canadian government should promote the working definition of anti-Semitism used by The European Union Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC). This definition categorizes â€őapplying double standards by requiring of [Israel] a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation” as anti-Semitic.
In other words, the CPCCA is supporting a definition whereby individuals who focus their attention on Israeli human rights violations, yet don’t level an equal amount of condemnation on other states for their human rights violations, can be labeled as anti-Semitic. This is obviously problematic since Palestine solidarity activists like any other people – have commitments that make it impossible to engage with every issue they are otherwise interested in. They shouldn’t be labeled as anti-Semitic due to their inability to participate in every single human rights struggle happening around the world.
Another dangerous recommendation made by the CPCCA was that Canadian university administrators should condemn â€ődiscourse, events and speakers which are untrue, harmful, or not in the interest of academic discourse, including Israeli Apartheid Week”. Even the use of the word â€őapartheid” in relation to Israel is anti-Semitic, the CPCCA found, since it amounts to the â€ődenial of the Jewish people their right to self- determination … by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor”.
This clearly violates freedom of speech and an open exchange of ideas at Canadian universities, and also unfairly and inaccurate labels Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) as anti-Semitic. In reality, IAW has since 2005 brought together respected activists, academics, journalists and cultural figures from around the world, including Judith Butler, Ronnie Kasrils, Noam Chomsky and Ali Abunimah, among others, to openly discuss ideas related to Israel/Palestine.
IAW provides an educational space for understanding Israel’s apartheid policies as evidenced, for example, through the separate legal systems used by Israelis and Palestinians living in the occupied West Bank or the discriminatory land ownership laws operating inside Israel and supports the growing campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS), which aims to non-violently pressure Israel to respect international law. It is far from the â€őuniformly well-organized, aggressive [campaign] designed to make the Jewish state and its supporters pariahs” the CPCCA report makes it out to be.
The CPCCA also recommended that the Canadian Committee of Foreign Affairs undertake a study on the United Nations Human Rights Council, â€őparticularly regarding its over-emphasis of alleged human rights abuses by Israel, while ignoring flagrant human rights abuses of other member states”.
This clearly demonstrates how the committee has confounded anti-Semitism with criticism of Israel, and is prepared to levy dubious suspicions against UN bodies and tarnish Canada’s international standing in the process.
In a statement released on July 8, Thomas Woodley, President of Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME), said that the CPCCA’s recommendations, â€őif implemented, will inhibit public discussion of Israel’s conduct”.
â€őCJPME believes that conclusions and recommendations generated by a process in which the same body – the CPCCA is prosecutor, jury, and judge, are not credible. Although a few of the witnesses recounted incidents that were indeed indicative of genuine anti-Semitism, many were complaining about merely being exposed to criticism of the Israel’s conduct,” the CJPME press release stated.
Independent Jewish Voices (IJV) Canada also criticized the committee, stating that â€őthe CPCCA’s goal is to criminalize criticism of Israel and Zionism, not to hold impartial hearings. Therefore, we oppose the CPCCA as an ideologically biased organization with an agenda that will harm free speech and human rights activity in Canada. We oppose the CPCCA’s Orwellian distortion of anti-Semitism. It is a danger to both Canadian liberties and to the genuine and necessary fight against anti-Semitism.”
Reflection of official Canadian policy
While labeling critics of Israeli policy as anti-Semitic is nothing new, the level at which this accusation is now being used in Canadian discourse must be seen as a reflection of the Canadian government’s official and current policy on the Middle East.
â€őWhen Israel, the only country in the world whose very existence is under attack, is consistently and conspicuously singled out for condemnation, I believe we are morally obligated to take a stand. Demonization, double standards, de-legitimization, the three D’s, it is the responsibility of us all to stand up to them,” Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in 2010 at the Ottawa Conference on Combating Anti-Semitism, which was supported by the CPCCA. Harper added:
â€őHarnessing disparate anti-American, anti-Semitic and anti-Western ideologies, it targets the Jewish people by targeting the Jewish homeland, Israel, as the source of injustice and conflict in the world and uses, perversely, the language of human rights to do so. We must be relentless in exposing this new anti-Semitism for what it is.”
Under Harper, Canada has routinely defended Israeli intransigence and disregard for international law and the human rights of the Palestinian people under its control. In return, trade cooperation and military and security technologies ties have been strengthened between the two states.
In May of this year, it was reported that Harper was adamantly opposed to making any reference to the 1967 borders in a G8 summit statement calling for renewed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Far-right Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman thanked Harper for his position, and stated, â€őCanada is a true friend of Israel”.
In 2010, Canada announced it would discontinue its financial contributions to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the organization that provides support and resources to approximately 4.7m registered Palestinian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the occupied Palestinian territories, and funnel the money into greater policing and security institutions run by the un-elected and corrupt Palestinian Authority leadership instead.
In January 2009, as the Israeli army continued its disproportionate attack on the besieged civilian population in Gaza that left 1,400 Palestinians dead in the span of three weeks, Canada was the only country out of 47 that voted against a motion at the United Nations Human Rights Council condemning the Israeli violence.
In addition to providing diplomatic cover for Israel, the Canadian government has attacked and cut funding to various non-governmental organizations working on issues related to Israel/Palestine, including Kairos Churches and Alternatives International.
Canadian Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Jason Kenney, who led the formation of the Canadian Parliamentary Committee to Combat Anti-Semitism (CPCCA) and is an ex-officio member, has also repeatedly alleged that the Canadian Arab Federation promotes anti-Semitism and hatred. While Kenney never backed up these claims, the Canadian Arab Federation’s contracts with the government which helped finance language programs for Toronto-area immigrants (the majority of whom are of Chinese origin) were not renewed in 2009.
Undermining the fight against real anti-Semitism
Anti-Semitism, like all other forms of racism, is appalling and must be strongly and unequivocally condemned.
But by defining legitimate criticism of Israeli policy and pro-Palestinian activism in Canada as anti-Semitic, the CPCCA is not only threatening free speech and freedom of protest, but it is undermining the fight against real cases of anti-Semitism and weakening the seriousness with which such cases should be dealt.
This is something that Canadians, and people everywhere, should be adamantly against.

Monsanto Buys ‘Terminator’ Seeds Company

The United States Government has been financing research on a genetic engineering technology which, when commercialized, will give its owners the power to control the food seed of entire nations or regions. The Government has been working quietly on this technology since 1983. Now, the little-known company that has been working in this genetic research with the Government’s US Department of Agriculture Delta & Pine Land is about to become part of the world’s largest supplier of patented genetically-modified seeds (GMO), Monsanto Corporation of St. Louis, Missouri.
Relations between Monsanto, Delta & Pine Land and the USDA, on closer scrutiny, show the deep and dark side of the much-heralded genetic revolution in agriculture. It proves deep-held suspicions that the Gene Revolution is not about ‘solving the world hunger problem’ as its advocates claim. It’s about handing over control of the seeds for mankind’s basic food supply—rice, corn, soybeans, wheat, even fruit, vegetables and cotton—to privately owned corporations. Once the seeds and their use are patented and controlled by one or several private agribusiness multinationals, it will be they who can decide whether or not a particular customer—let’s say for argument, China or Brazil or India or Japan—whether they will or won’t get the patented seeds from Monsanto, or from one of its licensee GMO partners like Bayer Crop Sciences, Syngenta or DuPont’s Pioneer Hi-Bred International.
While most of us don’t bother to reflect on where the corn in the box of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes or the rice in a box of Uncle Ben’s Converted Rice come from, when we grab it from the supermarket shelf, they all must originate with seeds. Seeds can either be taken by a farmer from the previous season’ seeds, and planted to produce the next harvest. Or, seeds can be bought new each harvest season, from the companies which sell their seeds.
The advent of commercial GMO seeds in the early 1990’s allowed companies like Monsanto, DuPont or Dow Chemicals to go from supplying agriculture chemical herbicides like Roundup, to patenting genetically altered seeds for basic farm crops like corn, rice, soybeans or wheat. For almost a quarter century, since 1983, the US Government has quietly been working to perfect a genetically engineered technique whereby farmers would be forced to turn to their seed supplier each harvest to get new seeds. The seeds would only produce one harvest. After that the seeds from that harvest would commit ‘suicide’ and be unusable.
There has been much hue and cry, correctly so, that this process, patented ‘suicide’ seeds, officially termed GURTs (Genetic Use Restriction Technologies), is a threat to poor farmers in developing countries like India or Brazil, who traditionally save their own seeds for the next planting. In fact, GURTs, more popularly referred to as Terminator seeds for the brutal manner in which they kill off plant reproduction possibilities, is a threat to the food security as well of North America, Western Europe, Japan and anywhere Monsanto and its elite cartel of GMO agribusiness partners enters a market.
The Curious History of Delta & Pine Land
Delta & Pine Land is a company that, despite the pine in its name, has deep roots. Founded in 1888, it has its headquarters at One Cotton Row in Scott, Mississippi, nestled between Goat Island and Choktaw Bar Island on the Mississippi River, near the Arkansas border. However, the people running things at Delta Pine are anything but your typical Mississippi black-dirt cotton farmers.
In 1983, Delta & Pine Land (D&PL) joined with the US Department of Agriculture in a project to develop Terminator seeds. It was one of the earliest experiments with GMO. It was a long-term project. The US Government has been serious about Terminator beginning more than two decades ago.
In March 1998 the US Patent Office granted Patent No. 5,723,765 to Delta & Pine Land for a patent titled, Control of Plant Gene _Expression. The patent is owned jointly, according to Delta & Pine’s Security & Exchange Commission 10K filing, ‘by D&PL and the United States of America, as represented by the Secretary of Agriculture.’
The patent has global coverage. To quote further from the official D&PL SEC filing, ‘The patent broadly covers all species of plant and seed, both transgenic (GMO-ed) and conventional, for a system designed to allow control of progeny seed viability without harming the crop’(sic).
Then, in a manner reminiscent of Big Brother in George Orwell’s novel, 1984, D&PL claims, ‘One application of the technology could be to control unauthorized planting of seed of proprietary varieties…by making such a practice non-economic since non-authorized saved seed will not germinate, and, therefore, would be useless for planting.’ D&PL calls the thousand-year-old tradition of farmer-saved seed by the pejorative term, ‘brown bagging’ as though it is something dirty and corrupt.
Translated into lay language, D&PL officially declares the purpose of its Patent No. 5,723,765, Control of Plant Gene _Expression, is to prevent farmers who once get trapped into buying transgenic or GMO seeds from a company such as Monsanto or Syngenta, from ‘brown bagging’ or being able to break free of control of their future crops by Monsanto and friends. As D&PL puts it, their patent gives them ‘the prospect of opening significant worldwide seed markets to the sale of transgenic technology in varietal crops in which crop seed currently is saved and used in subsequent seasons as planting seed.’
Instead, the farmer or the country whose farmers depend on Monsanto patented GMO seeds must pay a license fee to Monsanto each year to get new seeds. ‘No tickee, no laundy,’ as the old Brooklyn poet would say.
Terminator is the answer to the agribusiness dream of controlling world food production. No longer would they need to hire expensive detectives to spy on whether farmers were re-using Monsanto or other GMO patented seed. Terminator corn or soybeans or cotton seeds could be genetically modified to ‘commit suicide’ after one harvest season. That would automatically prevent farmers from saving and re-using the seed for the next harvest. The technology would be a means of enforcing Monsanto or other GMO patent rights, and forcing payment of farmer use fees not only in developing economies, where patent rights were, understandably, little respected, but also in industrial OECD countries.
With Terminator patent rights, once a country such as Argentina or Brazil or Iraq or the USA or Canada opened its doors to the spread of GMO patented seeds among its farmers, their food security would be potentially hostage to a private multinational company, a company which, for whatever reasons, especially given its intimate ties to the US Government, might decide to use ‘food as a weapon’ to compel a US-friendly policy from that country or group of countries.
Sound far-fetched? Go back to what then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger did in countries like Allende’s Chile to force a regime change to a ‘US-friendly’ Pinochet dictatorship by withholding USAID and private food exports to Chile. Kissinger dubbed it ‘food as a weapon.’ Terminator is merely the logical next step in food weapon technology.
The role of the US Government in backing and financing Delta & Pine Land’s decades of Terminator research is even more revealing. As Kissinger said back in the 1970’s, ‘Control the oil and you can control entire Continents. Control food and you control people…’
In a June 1998 interview, USDA spokesman, Willard Phelps, defined the US Government policy on Terminator seeds. He explained that USDA wanted the technology to be ‘widely licensed and made expeditiously available to many seed companies.’ He meant agribusiness GMO giants like Monsanto, DuPont or Dow. The USDA was open about their reasons: They wanted to get Terminator seeds into the developing world where the Rockefeller Foundation had made eventual proliferation of genetically engineered crops the heart of its GMO strategy from the beginnings of its rice genome project in 1984.
USDA’s Phelps stated that the US Government’s goal in fostering the widest possible development of Terminator technology was ‘to increase the value of proprietary seed owned by US seed companies and to open up new markets in Second and Third World countries.’
Under WTO rules on free trade in agriculture, countries are forbidden to impose their own national health restrictions on GMO imports if it is deemed to be an ‘unfair trade barrier.’ It begins to become clear why it was the US Government and US agribusiness which during the late 1980’s pushed at the GATT Uruguay Round for creation of a World Trade Organization, with its supranational arbitrary powers over world agriculture trade. It all fits into a neat picture of patented seeds, forced on reluctant WTO member nations, under threat of WTO sanctions, and now of Terminator or suicide seeds.
A closer look at who runs and owns Delta & Pine Land is instructive.
Arkansas Politics and D&PL
The largest shareholder in D&PL is the Stephens Group of Little Rock, Arkansas. Here is where things become interesting indeed.
The man who is Chairman of the Board of DP&L is Jon E.M. Jacoby, who came to DP&L as representative of the Stephens Group. Jacoby is a Director and Vice Chairman of The Stephens Group LLC, the Arkansas-based private equity firm owned by the Stephens family.
The Stephens Group prides itself on being the nation’s largest investment bank outside Wall Street, based, of all places, in little ol’ Little Rock, in hillbilly land, Arkansas, one of the poorest states in the United States. Stephens Inc. is also one of the biggest institutional shareholders in 30 large multinationals including the Arkansas based firms Tyson Food, the world’s largest chicken industrial factory operation and the infamous Arkansas giant, Wal-Mart.
Jackson Stephens, who founded the group with his brother, Witt, were more than just lucky Arkansas bankers and billionaires. Stephens evidently built his career and fortune by being connected to the ‘right’ people. He was a US Naval Academy classmate of Jimmy Carter and during the Georgia bank scandals of President Carter’s Office of Management & Budget chief, Bert Lance, it was Jack Stephens who stepped in to bail Lance out of an extremely embarrassing financial debacle with Lance’s old bank, National Bank of Georgia.
How Stephens helped Jimmy Carter’s fellow Georgia buddy, Lance, is the interesting part. Stephens introduced Lance to a Pakistani businessman, Agha Hasan Abedi. Abedi was the founder of a curious Luxembourg-registered, London-based bank called BCCI.
In 1990, BCCI was convicted of money laundering for the Columbian Cocaine Cartels in Miami.
In October, 1992, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee released an 800-page report on the BCCI collapse. They called the BCCI scandal, ‘the largest case of organized crime in history, spanning over some 72 nations,’ adding that it represented an ‘international financial crime on a massive and global scale,’ and that the bank ‘systematically bribed world leaders and political figures throughout the world.’
The Senate report concluded that among the provable charges against BCCI were ‘BCCI’s criminality, including fraud…involving billions of dollars; money laundering in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the America; BCCI’s bribery of officials in most of those locations; its support of terrorism, arms trafficking, and the sale of nuclear technologies; its management of prostitution; its commission and facilitation of income tax evasion, smuggling, and illegal immigration; its illicit purchases of banks and real estate; and a panoply of financial crimes limited only by the imagination of its officers and customers.’
Jackson Stephens was no casual business acquaintance of BCCI’s Agha Hasan Abedi. In response to the concerns over Jackson Stephens’ involvement in BCCI, the Ohio Attorney General noted in a 1993 report, ‘Stephens’ name has been linked to securities violations that allegedly occurred when the Bank of Commerce and Credit International (BCCI), a foreign bank dominated by Pakistani financier Agha Hasan Abedi, acquired stock and control over the Washington-based First American Bank.’ In 1991, Stephens joined BCCI investor Mochtar Riady in buying BCCI’s former Hong Kong subsidiary from its liquidators.
The Stephens Group was well-connected to another interesting Asian banking group, the billionaire Indonesian Riady family of Moktar and his son James Riady, who own the Lippo Bank in Indonesia. The Riadys are Chinese-Indonesian businessmen who, of all places, moved to Arkansas in the 1970’s, despite holding billions of assets in Asia. Stephens and Riady hit it off and soon Stephens and Riady bought a bank in Hong Kong. Stephens then invited Riady to invest in a Little Rock, Arkansas bank called Worthen.
BCCI and Jackson Stephens, chairman of the Stephens Group of Arkansas were well known to one another. Stephens Group board member, Jon E.M. Jacoby, today Chairman of Delta & Pine Land, and still a Vice Director of The Stephens Group, was a very senior, trusted member of the Stephens’ inside circle for more than 35 years.
Jackson Stephens’ Stephens Group financially staked Sam Walton when he started Wal-Mart in 1970. Stephens also financed Tyson Foods to become the agribusiness global giant it is today. Jon Jacoby, as senior executive of the Stephens Group, had arranged the 1970 Wal-Mart deal. Jon E.M. Jacoby and Jackson Stephens went way back.
Jacoby was Vice President of Stephens Inc. in the early 1990’s, shortly after the BCCI scandals and early into the Presidency of another Jackson Stephens protégé, former Arkansas Governor and recipient of Stephens’ political largess, William Jefferson Clinton.
When an Arkansas reporter questioned Jacoby on allegations of Clinton’s alleged corruption as Governor of Arkansas, Jacoby quipped, â€őYou see a girl walking down the street. You can say, ‘There goes a beautiful girl’ or ‘There goes a whore.’ What the hell’s the difference? They’ve both got legs.”
Arkansas politics is known for its colorful metaphors and its colorful politicians like William Jefferson Clinton. It’s good to get a little of the flavor of this Arkansas colorfulness to get a better picture of Delta & Pine Land.
Stephens Group, Tyson Farms and Other Arkansas Fairy Tales
A tangled web of relations links the Stephens Group and Delta & Pine Land of Scott, Mississippi with another satellite in the agribusiness orbit of the influential Stephens Group. The Stephens Group is also linked intimately with Arkansas-based Tyson Foods, the US’ largest agribusiness processor of industrialized chicken meat, and arguably one of its most unsanitary ones.
Tyson Foods curiously emerged from the recent Avian Flu (H5N1) virus scare as a winner, using the lie that their factory farm mass-bred assembly-line chickens were more ‘sanitary’ than free-roaming small farm chickens of Asia.
Washington Administrations, at least since the Presidency of Bill Clinton, seem to have a love affair of some sort with Tyson Foods.
It began when Clinton sought to name an Arkansas crony, Mike Espy, to be his Secretary of Agriculture. Before Clinton could submit Espy’s name to the Senate for confirmation, however, Espy was sent to Arkansas for a meeting that would decide if Espy had the right stuff. The meeting was with Don Tyson, head of Tyson Foods.
Tyson apparently concluded that Espy indeed had the right stuff, at least as far as Tyson was concerned. Soon after being named head of USDA, Espy enacted measures significantly weakening Federal chicken waste and contamination standards. That opened the floodgates for expansion of Tyson Foods chicken factory farms into the huge concentrations of chicken waste and rivers overflowing with toxic pollution in Arkansas and beyond.
The Wall Street Journal on May 28, 2003 reviewed the allegations surrounding then-President Clinton and his wife, Hillary. They detailed some relevant points from the Clintons’ Arkansas days:
1977
Hillary Rodham Clinton joins the Rose Law Firm. Jackson Stephens joins with former Carter administration budget director Bert Lance and a group of Mideast investorslater identified as key figures in the corrupt Bank of Credit & Commerce Internationalin an unsuccessful attempt to acquire Financial General Bankshares in Washington, D.C
1978
October: Mrs. Clinton, now a partner at the Rose Firm, begins a series of commodities trades under the guidance of Tyson Foods executive Jim Blair, earning nearly $100,000. (author’s emphasis). The trades are not revealed until March 1994.
November: Bill Clinton is elected Governor of Arkansas.
The Rose law firm was the house law firm of Jackson Stephens’ Stephens Group investment bank in Little Rock. To be the corporate law firm of the Stephens Group was no casual affair. It implied a deep trust relationship and perhaps more. As one crony of Jackson Stephens put it at that time, ‘Jackson Stephens? He’s the man who owns Arkansas.’
The head of the prestigious Rose law firm in Little Rock in those days was C. Joseph Giroir jr. In 1977 Giroir hired a young lawyer named Hillary Clinton to work for Rose. It was all one cozy Arkansas-Indonesia family back then.
The Wall Street Journal commentary on the Clinton years had the following entry for 1987, as Clinton was still Arkansas Governor:
1987:
Officials at investment giant Stephens Inc., including longtime Clinton friend, David Edwards, take steps to rescue Harken Energy, a struggling Texas oil company with George W. Bush on its board. Over the next three years, Mr. Edwards brings BCCI-linked investors and advisers into Harken deals. One of them, Abdullah Bakhsh, purchases $10 million in shares of Stephens-dominated Worthen Bank. (author’s emphasis).
Jackson Stephens’ political largesse was non-partisan: Democrats Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and then Republican George W. Bush, the man now in the White House as Monsanto seeks approval to take over the Stephens Group’s Delta & pine land.
In December 1992, just after Clinton had been elected President in a campaign financed at critical points by Jackson Stephens and friends, including the Indonesian-American Riady family, Vince Foster, an Arkansas friend of the Clinton’s, and a law partner at Hillary’s Rose law firm, met James McDougal. Foster arranged for McDougal to buy the Clintons’ remaining shares in Whitewater Development Co. That land deal was focus of Congressional investigation of the Clintons. McDougal was loaned the money for the purchase by Tyson Foods counsel Jim Blair, the long-time Clinton friend and commodities adviser who in 1978 had ‘tutored’ Hillary in her fabulously successful commodities speculation. The loan by Tyson’s Jim Blair to McDougal was never repaid.
No sooner did Bill and Hillary Clinton move into the White House, and the Tyson Foods-approved Mike Espy took over as US Secretary of Agriculture, than Hillary’s former law partner, Joseph Giroir, set up a corporation. It was called Arkansas International Development Corporation (AIDC). In fact, it appears that the AIDC was set up to do joint ventures with the Indonesian Lippo Group of the business partners of Jackson Stephens, Mokhtar and James Riady.
The Arkansas International Development Corporation brokered a deal between Indonesia’s Lippo Group and Arkansas’ Tyson Foods that opened Indonesia to import Tyson Foods industrially-produced Arkansas factory farm chickens. One food Indonesia does not need to import is certainly chickens. The cheap Arkansas imports destroyed the fragile economy of domestic Indonesian small family chicken farmers.
Another project of AIDC was to issue bonds to build an airport in the Arkansas backwoods for the sole purpose of shipping Tyson Farms chickens to Indonesia. Recall that Clinton’s wife had been profiting from the trading advice of Tyson Foods since October 1978, a month before her husband became Governor.
Under the Clinton Presidency, agribusiness, especially agribusiness tied to the Stephens’ interests, made huge advances.
Agriculture Secretary Espy was forced to resign in October 1994, and was indicted on charges of accepting bribes and other gratuities. Among the charges against him were making false statements, concealing money from prohibited sources, illegal gratuities, illegal contributions, falsifying records, interstate transportation of stolen property, money laundering, and illegal dispersal of USDA subsidies. The largest corporate offender was Tyson Foods. Tyson had illegally offered Espy $12,000 in airplane rides, football tickets and other payoffs. Espy got off because the law makes it easier to convict a briber than a bribee. Tyson paid the government $6 million to close its case.
Tyson had been enthusiastic supporters of the Clinton family for years. In 1994, Time reported that a senior pilot for Tyson, Joe Henrickson, had been grilled for three days by the Espy Independent Prosecutor, Dan Smaltz, and FBI agents. They grilled the Tyson pilot about earlier transfers of cash to the (Arkansas) Governor’s (Bill Clinton) mansion. According to Time, Henrickson claimed to have carried white envelopes containing a quarter-inch stack of $100 bills on six occasions.
Time magazine reported that, ‘In one case, [Henrickson claimed] a Tyson executive handed him an envelope of cash in the company’s aircraft hanger in Fayetteville and said, ‘This is for Governor Clinton.’ Arkansas has its political traditions and the Stephens and Tyson families are evidently skilled practitioners of that art.
The real interest in Jacoby’s Delta & Pine Land
By now the question comes, what is so attractive about the Stephens Group’s Delta & Pine Land that Monsanto makes its second bid to add it to its global genetically-engineered seeds empire?
It’s the patent Delta & Pine Land, together with the US Government, holdsPatent No. 5,723,765, titled, Control of Plant Gene _Expression. The USDA through its Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) in Lubbock, Texas, as already noted, has worked with Delta & Pine Land since 1983 to perfect Terminator GMO technology. Patent No. 5,723,765 is the patent for Terminator technology.
One year later, in early 1999 Monsanto, the largest producer of GMO seeds and related agri-chemicals, announced it was acquiring Delta & Pine Land along with Delta’s Terminator patents.
In October 1999, however, following a worldwide storm of protest against Terminator seeds that threatened the very future of the Rockefeller Foundation’s ‘Gene Revolution’ Dr. Gordon Conway, President of the prestigious Rockefeller Foundation, met privately with the Board of Directors of Monsanto. Conway convinced Monsanto that for the long-term future of their GMO Project, they must go public to indicate to a worried world that it would not ‘commercialize’ Terminator. Development of the genetic revolution and genetic engineering as a research area had been the project of the Rockefeller Foundation over decades, along with researchers in the family’s Rockefeller University.
The Anglo-Swiss Syngenta joined with Monsanto in declaring solemnly that they would also not commercialize their work on GURTS or Terminator suicide seed technology.
That 1999 announcement took enormous pressure off of Monsanto and the agribusiness GMO giants, allowing them to advance the proliferation of their patented GMO seeds globally. Terminator could come later, once farmers and entire national agriculture areas like North America or Argentina or India had been taken over by GMO crops. Then, of course, it would be too late. The Rockefeller-Monsanto 1999 press conference was clearly application of classic Lenin Bolshevik tactics—Two Steps Forward, One Step Back…
Despite the Monsanto declaration of a moratorium on Terminator development, the US Government and the again independent Delta & Pine Land refused to drop their Terminator development.
In 2000, a year after the Monsanto Terminator moratorium announcement, the Clinton Administration’s USDA Secretary, Dan Glickman, refused repeated efforts by various agriculture and NGO organizations to drop the Government’s support for Terminator or GURTs. His Department’s feeble excuse for not dropping support for the work with Delta & Pine Land was that it allowed the US Government to put ‘leverage’ on D&PL to ‘protect the public interest.’ Six years later it became clear: the only leverage the US Government had put on D&PL’s commercialization efforts on GURTs had been to lever it into commercial reality.
Delta Vice President, Harry Collins, declared at the time in a press interview in the Agra/Industrial Biotechnology Legal Letter, ‘We’ve continued right on with work on the Technology Protection System (TPS or Terminator). We never really slowed down. We’re on target, moving ahead to commercialize it. We never really backed off.’
Nor did their partner, the United States Department of Agriculture, back down on Terminator after 1999. In 2001 the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) website announced: ‘USDA has no plans to introduce TPS into any germplasm…Our involvement has been to help develop the technology, not to assist companies to use it.’ As if to say, ‘see, our hands are clean.’ Then they went on to say the USDA was, ‘committed to making the [Terminator] technology as widely available as possible, so that its benefits will accrue to all segments of society (sic)…ARS intends to do research on other applications of this unique gene control discovery…When new applications are at the appropriate stage of development, this technology will also be transferred to the private sector for commercial application.’ Terminator was alive and well inside the Washington bureaucracy.
In 2001, the USDA and Delta & Pine executed a Commercialization Agreement for Terminator, its infamous Patent No. 5,723,765. The Government and Delta & Pine Land were not at all concerned about worldwide outcry against Terminator.
That announcement came two years after Monsanto had dropped its planned takeover of D&PL, with its Terminator patents.
The world was left with the (misleading) impression that Terminator was dead. Reality was it was anything but dead. Seven years later, long after public outcry against Terminator technology had died down, Monsanto re-entered and bought Delta & Pine Land and its Terminator patents.
Delta & Pine Land’s global net
The key scientific member of the Delta & Pine Land board since 1993 has been Dr. Nam-Hai Chua. Chua, 62, is also head of the Rockefeller University Plant Molecular Biology Laboratory in New York, and has been for over 25 years, the labs which are at the heart of the Rockefeller Foundation’s decades-long development, and spending of more than $100 millions of its own research grants to create their Gene Revolution. Until 1995, Chua was also a scientific consultant to Monsanto Corporation, as well as to DuPont’s Pioneer Hi-Bred International. Chua is at the heart of Rockefeller’s Gene Revolution. And, clearly, Delta & Pine Land and their research on Terminator have been in the center of that work.
Delta & Pine Land is well-placed globally to proliferate its suicide seeds now, with the corporate and financial clout of the giant Monsanto company. Delta & Pine already has subsidiaries including D&PL Argentina, D&PL China, D&PL China PTE in Singapore, Deltapine Paraguay, Delta Pine de Mexico, Deltapine Australia, Hebei Ji Dai Cottonseed Technology Company in China, CDM Mandiyu in Argentina, Delta and Pine Land Hellas in Greece, D&M Brazil Algodao of Brazil, D&PL India, D&PL Mauritius Ltd.
This vast global network combined with Monsanto’s dominant position in the GMO seeds and agri-chemicals market along with the unique DP&L Patent No. 5,723,765, Control of Plant Gene _Expression, now give Monsanto and its close friends in Washington an enormous advance in their plans to dominate world food and plant seed use.

The Morgenthau Plan for Israel by J.B. Campbell

Israel Must Perish! It’s a Cancer Eating Up the World
by J.B. Campbell
Thursday, June 2nd, 2011
The Morgenthau Plan for Germany was presented to Franklin Roosevelt by his treasury secretary, Henry Morgenthau, Jr. George Patton said in his diary that the idea was presented to Morgenthau by Dwight D. Eisenhower during a visit to Patton’s camp in France a few weeks after D-Day. Harry Dexter White (Weit), a Soviet agent in Morgenthau’s Treasury Department whose parents were Lithuanian Jews, designed our post-war genocide of the Germans based on a book written in 1941 by Theodore N. Kaufman entitled ‘‘Germany Must Perish!’
The Morgenthau Plan was the reason that millions of Germans, both prisoners of war and German civilians, were slaughtered on Eisenhower’s orders in the months and years following World War II. It was the reason that German industry was dismantled and taken to the Soviet Union. It was the reason that German children and adults were put through Jewish brainwashing to hate themselves and obey the Jews. It was all in the plan, all based on Kaufman’s vicious little book.
I don’t like to criticize Jews. It gives them too much power over our minds, by making us think about them, which is what they crave. It must however be done occasionally. We should therefore let them do the work.
Roy Arthur Topham up in Canada has come up with a truly brilliant way to do this. He has simply taken Kaufman’s book and replaced ‘‘Germany’ with ‘Israel,’ ‘Germans’ with ‘Jews’ and ‘Nazi’ with ‘Zionist.’ In so doing, he has given us the weapon we need, a means of describing the menace of Israel as I myself could never do, either for lack of writing ability or inclination or both.
Israel and Judaism are deserving of our hate but it is not in our nature to do this properly. This is easily proven by reading Kaufman’s words. He knew how to hate and how to write about it. It is so odd that his lies about Germany become the truth about Israel. So odd but so fitting.
Israel must perish. It is a cancer eating up the world. Cancer is killing so many people because the ones we have trusted to fight cancer have deliberately made the disease more widespread by using cancer-causing but lucrative quack remedies such as radiation and poisonous chemicals. Surgery often spreads cancer but sometimes there’s no other way to get rid of a tumor. That is what is called for in the case of Israel. This malignant tumor must be cut out. Or starved out, the way Germany was starved out.
MorganthauRoos
Henry Morgenthau and President Roosevelt
Of course, there is no political will in DC to do this. We need to get rid of the institution that represents only the interests of Israel, the US Congress. This body should be devoted to American interests, mainly in the creation of debt-free currency. But it certainly mustn’t be devoted to the military superiority of Israel, as is currently and traditionally the case.
What would have been the reaction of US Jews if it were revealed that all congressional candidates had to sign a pledge to maintain the military superiority of Nazi Germany in the 1930s and ’40s? Would we ever have heard the end of it?
So here is Roy Arthur Topham’s conversion of anti-German lies into anti-Jewish truth. What can Jewish critics say? The language is Jewish, written by someone with a blinding hatred of the German people, without doubt the finest and most creative and decent people on earth. It is only fair that the language is turned back on those who supported the mass murder of the Germans, a crime against humanity based on this very book.
The Germans have been libeled as ‘Hitler’s willing executioners,’ for going along with the German extermination of Jews, something we now know neither happened nor was attempted nor even contemplated. But something that we do know is happening is the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians by Israel, something generally supported by Jews everywhere. Some Jews may say they do not support this but how many Jews say that Jews must get out of Palestine, which is the only solution to this crime against humanity? I’ve never heard one say it. Only Helen Thomas said it.
Therefore, we can say that Jews everywhere are ‘‘Netanyahu’s willing executioners.’
Here is how Theodore N. Kaufman prescribed the treatment of such a bloodthirsty people, with the names changed to attack the guilty:
Arthur Topham has done something brilliant yet simple that it makes people such as myself ask, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’
What Eisenhower’s army killers did to the Germans after World War II was so horrific and dreadful that you cannot find films of it on YouTube or Google, the owners of which naturally don’t want us to see what their synagogue brethren did to a prostrate and helpless people. If we could see what was done to Germans we could better grasp the same crimes being committed today against Arabs, by the same people.
What can anyone say about this idea? That it is hateful? Consider the source. This is just the Morgenthau Plan for Israel. It’s only fair. What follows is an excerpt from Arthur Topham’s conversion of Kaufman.
ISRAEL MUST PERISH! The Book that the Jews Fear
By Arthur Topham
May 27, 2011
Author’s Preface:
What is contained herein is but a synopsis and partial review of the verbatim text of an actual book first published in the USA back in early 1941 when America was still a neutral country. That book, Germany Must Perish! was written by a Jewish writer by the name of Theodore N. Kaufman. Its exact proposals are those contained herein.
It is assumed that the reader will already be fully cognizant of the Zionist agenda for global governance that is a given in today’s political reality, especially within the alternative media and on the Internet where Zionist ‘hate’ laws are still not fully in place to restrict the natural flow of ideas and opinions that proceed from historical research and experience.
In 1941 Kaufman’s book was a brilliant piece of Zionist Jew propaganda designed to stir up anti-German hatred in America. Some say that it formed the basis of the infamous ‘‘Morgenthau Plan’ that was later signed in Quebec, Canada by President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill; one designed to dismember Germany after its defeat and reduce it to the status of ‘a goat pasture.’ It was probably remains to this day the foremost example of hate literature ever to have been published and dispensed to the general public.
As the reader will surmise from viewing the image of the back page of Kaufman’s book some of America’s most prestigious newspapers and magazines were in full support of the objectives set down in this classic book of Jewish hate literature. Again, the reader is cautioned to bear in mind that I have changed the word ‘Nazi’ to ‘Jew’ in the quote from the Philadelphia Record as I have changed all the other words ‘German’ and ‘Nazi’ to ‘Jew’ and ‘Zionist,’ etc.
The striking thing about the vileness of the text is how, today, it seems to roll off the mind’s tongue as if it were as truthful and factual as the rising sun. As such I firmly believe that all of what the Zionist Jews write about others is actually but a reflection of their own inner, perverse, dislocated self. By projecting outward on to others their innate paranoid and deep-seated hatred for the rest of the world they’re able to meet the requirements of the Israeli state’s motto which reads, ‘By Way of Deception Though Shalt Cause War’ and feel a sense of superiority and self-righteousness in doing so.
I would humbly ask the reader to be aware of these features as they read both the text and the context in which it was first written. I have, as the saying goes, only changed the names to protect the innocent. As for any further extrapolation I will leave that up to the reader.
________________
In ISRAEL MUST PERISH! The Book that the Jews Fear, beginning with the Table of Contents page Topham makes this dramatic initial statement ‘This dynamic volume outlines a comprehensive plan for the extinction of the Jewish nation and the total eradication from the earth, of all her people.’ How do you like those apples so far? Talk about cutting to the chase!
From Chapter One: About This Book
‘‘Today’‘ wars are not wars against Netanyahu. Nor are they wars against the Zionists. Netanyahu is no more to be blamed for these Israeli wars than was Sharon for the last one. Nor Begin before. These men did not originate or wage Israel’s wars against the world. They were merely the mirrors reflecting centuries-old inbred lust of the Jewish nation for conquest and mass murder. These wars are being waged by the Jewish people. It is they who are responsible. It is they who must be made to pay for the wars. This time Israel has forced a TOTAL WAR upon the world. As a result, she must be prepared to pay a TOTAL PENALTY.
And there is one, and only one, such Total Penalty, Israel must perish forever! In fact, not in fancy!

Defanging the serpent: Final Solution for World Peace by Ian V. Macdonald

Writer’s prefatorial comments: The erasure of Israel is the obvious prerequisite for restoration of a stable world peace but for some reason politicians and journalists stay away from the subject, or at least are never quoted. Perhaps because they know they would face permanent unemployment, or worse, should they attempt even mention of the idea, let alone support it. Publication of this letter might stiffen a few journalistic backbones in cases where the individuals choose early retirement from the profession, but unfortunately it will not be published. I.V.

Dear Sir,
Final Solution for World Peace
Even the very thought has been long taboo among Western politicians and editors, but with the growing determination of Israel to expand its sphere of influence in the Middle East and North Africa and her ability to coerce the United States and even peace-keeping Canada into serving her sinister military and political goals, it is not too soon to recognize that the establishment of a sovereign Jewish state was a miscalculation with potentially-apocalyptic consequences that must be corrected, with the use of force, if necessary..
The Israeli Prime Minister has made it clear that ‘negotiations’ for an equitable division of Palestine will never succeed. Perhaps an illusory modus vivendi will be achieved but the problem of an neurotic, nuclear power surrounded by perceived enemies nevertheless would persist and intensify with further Zionist provocations.
The crux of the problem, however, is neither borders nor militant Zionism as such, but rather the toxic subversion that a sovereign Jewish state has been able to achieve of the leadership of the Western democracies which in several nations has reached the point of a veritable coup d’etat . The American President and Congress openly express their unswerving allegiance and subservience to the State of Israel, as does the Canadian Prime Minister, although virtually all their respective patriotic constituents, in tune with the rest of humanity, look upon the criminal apartheid nation with abhorrence, at best.
This stealthy conquest-from-within of America has enabled the Zionists to dictate U.S. foreign, military, financial and immigration policy and thus denationalize and destabilize the country, furthering their goal of a World Government under their control. The takeover has been financed partly by earnings from international banking and other forms of organized crime made possible by the existence of a safe-haven where both the criminals and their spoils can be protected from retribution and retrieval. No other criminal community in the world has this advantage. It is invaluable in laundering the immense profits from international drug dealing, arms sales, major fraud, prostitution, embezzlement, theft, smuggling and other wrongdoing, all on a grand scale. Ironically, much of the laundered money is returned to its country of origin, further corrupting the political process and dispossessing the original victims (recently, $4 billion was invested by Israelis in one year in Montreal real estate alone, a tiny fraction of the total).
Israel is a powerful state. It was built on deceit, bribery, terror and the venality and treachery of British and American politicians, then nurtured on the no less problematical Legend of the Six Million, a gargantuan public relations project contrived to sway the sympathy of the masses. In recent years Israel’s plummeting popularity gained a boost from the heavily-promoted spectre of ‘terrorism’. This support is now evaporating with the growing, well-founded, suspicion that the demolition of the WTC was a Mossad false flag operation to justify the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, among other sordid ventures. If Israel should perish tomorrow, there would be few tears, even among Diaspora Jews, many of whom must view each new Zionist atrocity and exposed subterfuge as a threat to their privileged existence in host countries.
The dismantling of Israel may seem a daunting challenge on its face but deepening worldwide disapprobation and fear of the prospect of waging another World War on Zion’s behalf could easily foster the birth of a massive grass-roots movement that no nominally-democratic government could withstand, no matter how desperate the efforts of the Zionist media and Jewish lobbyists. To ensure Israeli compliance, Iraq-style total sanctions could be deployed, rendering the vulnerable rogue-state quickly dysfunctional. Civil disturbances would arise, justifying UN -style intervention to neutralize the country’s military establishment and nuclear capabilities. Armed resistance would not be an option.
In the aftermath, long-overdue War Crimes trials could be held, political prisoners freed, generous compensation dispensed to victims from Israel’s bursting coffers, and a new regime installed pending free elections in a Jewish-Palestinian federation with Jerusalem declared an International Holy City, as originally planned. With Israel gone, the world, purged of its most diabolically-avaricious, paranoid, duplicitous, corrupting, war-mongering, racist enemy, could rest happily in peace and security with the prospect of representative government, freed from the grip of a foreign lobby. There would be time then to devise an appropriate fate for the domestic politicians and their Zionist paymasters, without whose contemptible treason Israel never would have been born..
