  • Israel's free speech double standard: ‘Incitement’ law used to crack down on Palestinian political expression
    • Weimar Germany was known for its Criminalization of Speech critical of the politics of the Jewish community:

      Flemming Rose notes that “rather than deterring the Nazis and preventing anti-Semitism, the many court cases served as effective public relations machinery for Streicher’s efforts, affording him the kind of attention he never would have found had his utterances been made in a climate of free and open debate. Only weeks after Streicher was sentenced to two months imprisonment for anti-Semitism, the Nazis trebled their share of the vote at the state legislature election in Thuringia.” Bernhard Weiss, Vice-President of the Berlin police, regularly dragged Goebbels into court on charges of anti-Semitism. In all these cases brought against the future head of Nazi propaganda, the prosecution came out on top, yet according to one observer, in the public eye Weiss consistently ended up looking more like the loser, as Goebbels’ anti-Semitic invective found a platform in the public process. In the period 1923 to 1933, Der Stürmer was either confiscated or its editors taken to court on no fewer than 36 separate occasions. In 1928, the paper and its staff were the subjects of five litigations in the space of 11 days. These proceedings, however, gave the general public the impression that Streicher was more significant than perhaps was the case. Those instances where Streicher was sentenced to terms of imprisonment were a golden opportunity for him to present himself as a victim and martyr. The more charges he faced, the more he was admired. On those occasions on which he was sent to jail, Streicher was accompanied on his way by hundreds of sympathisers in “what looked like his triumphal entry into martyrdom.” I

      Siegel accompanied Moe Sedway to Las Vegas in 1941, and while Sedway went about setting up local sports betting by telegraph for the Syndicate on the East Coast, Bugsy hung out in the fledgling cowboy casinos on U.S. 91. There, he met Billy Wilkerson, a California nightclub owner, who had run out of money trying to build a ritzy resort that would be called the Flamingo. For $1 million, Siegel bought Wilkerson out and completed the project in late 1946, aided by additional funds from Syndicate boss Meyer Lansky.

      When cost overruns, casino losses and poor marketing showed up on the balance sheets in 1947, Siegel was unceremoniously gunned down in Beverly Hills. Lansky sent Gus Greenbaum, Joe Rosenberg and “Icepick Willie” Alderman to take over operations of the Flamingo and soon the money was flowing in.

  • Shit dead rabbis say about gentiles
    • Maxwell, Epstein, olmert, and Dershowitz are/were not religious or hiding behind a holy book-- quite the opposite:

      After his conviction, Epstein's story grew even more bizarre, with anonymous women accusing him in federal court of conspiring with Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the late British media baron Robert Maxwell, to operate an international underage sex ring.
      ...

      "Epstein's purpose in 'lending' Jane Doe [along with other young girls] to such powerful people [was] to ingratiate himself with them for business, personal, political and financial gain, as well as to obtain blackmail information," the filing alleges.

      ---------------------

      in this well-researched book from best-selling author Gordon Thomas and terrorism expert Martin Dillon tells the other, long-secret half of Maxwell's story. We are shown how Maxwell achieved his topmost objective as a superspy for Israel's Mossad; sold PROMIS—America's state-of-the-art surveillance software stolen by Mossad—to the USSR and many other countries; recruited foremost Republican Senator John Tower to acquire for Israel top-secret, cutting-edge U.S. technology being developed at Los Alamos; cultivated his vast KGB connections and strove to involve Israel in a coup to oust Mikhail Gorbachev; and how Maxwell ultimately became Mossad's target in an elaborately prepared assassination plot. For in November 1991, as his yacht cruised offshore of the Canary Islands, the life of Robert Maxwell ended—officially, by drowning.

    • who financed the epstein sex slave / blackmail enterprise? how does a stock broker become a billionaire in five plus years? Any mainstream investigative journalism on this?

      ---------
      Raised in a tough Brooklyn neighbourhood, Epstein was working as a maths teacher at a Manhattan private school when, the legend goes, the father of one of his students put him in touch with a partner at the global investment bank Bear Stearns.

      That was 1976. Within six years Epstein had risen through the ranks, working as a trader, before striking out on his own and convincing some of America’s wealthiest plutocrats to let him manage their portfolios.

      Profiting from the 1980s boom, Epstein quickly amassed his own fortune. Often referred to as a billionaire, Epstein’s true net worth remains unknown – in part because much of his wealth is concealed, according to Forbes, in a financial entity in the US Virgin Islands, a tax shelter where he owns his own private island.

      We thought it was a great idea. As a family, we hadn’t been particularly religious, but we wanted our daughter to learn more about her heritage. For a while she’d been dating a non-Jewish boy, and we hoped this class would strengthen her commitment to raising a Jewish family.

Still, she continued to live in our home. We bought her a car and gave her a credit card for her daily needs. Days would pass and I wouldn’t see her. She’d sneak in and out, eat her kosher food alone in her room.

      Prime Minister Manuel Vals lists four. “There is a fundamental difference between the freedom to be impertinent and anti-Semitism, racism, glorification of terrorist acts, and Holocaust denial, all of which are crimes, that justice should punish with the most severity.”

  • There is no pride for Jews in the state of Israel
  • It's not the cartoons-- a contrarian perspective from a Muslim cartoonist
    • The wasp left and reactionary right converge against the Paris Je suis Netanyahu march.

      "Still, any truly pious Muslim is principally speaking more deserving of my admiration than a bunch of leftist satirical 'artists' for whom "nothing is sacred"--a fact they proudly stated and extolled as a kind of bizarre anti-virtue. It is the people of that same spirit--that same internal psychological orientation and signature--who have wrecked Europe, who have spat upon our symbols and perverted our civilization.
      ...
      Their "values" are nothing but a negation, a gaping black hole, the absence of God... death and damnation. The "new Europe" they have created is a grotesque counterfeit, deprived of any higher guidance or leading star. The "freedom" this system allows, indeed promotes, is only the 'satanic' freedom of falling ever lower into darkness and chaos. A suicidal freedom that allows soul-killing infections to spread unchecked.
      ...
      What does it matter if every Mosque is demolished and every subversive immigrant is expelled down, as long as Hollywood and the rest of the "culture" industry continues spitting forth products that pollute the minds of our youth, destroying all notions of purity and nobility--denigrating the idea of the sacred itself?

      There are forces in our very midst that are responsible for the corruption of generations. They have committed a spiritual crime of the highest order. The scope of it is sickening to witness and acknowledge.

      They are the enemy, and they do not depend upon Islam at the end of the day. Islam is no more than a cheap tool to them; entirely disposable. It is useful when it comes to atomizing Europe--not so useful those times when it gets in the way of global uniformization.

    • I knew friends deep inside CO2 emissions trading at BP / Enron at the beginning. The highest levels of energy companies love global warming as a business opportunity-- it is a massive transfer of wealth from emitters ( humans, mammals ) to CO2 sinks , emissions credit providers, mainly forest owners, ie federal states, and the energy companies sit in the middle taking an intermediation fee. The emissions credit providers do not plant more trees, they just sell the credits on the federal land to the emitters. The emitters charge the consumers for the purchase and take an intermediation fee. The banks trade the credits. The same oil companies give generously to the climate change advocate ngos. True or not, its a great business scam for the elite.

    • Being a Muslim in the West feels like Being “Charlie Coulibaly.”, especially after a few drinks.

      France's First Free-Speech Challenge After Charlie Hebdo
      Provocateur and "comedian" Dieudonné could face charges after posting a controversial statement on his Facebook account.

      On Monday, the Paris prosecutor’s office announced that it will investigate a (since-deleted) Facebook post in which Dieudonné wrote a short missive about the solidarity march in Paris, ending it with the words “I feel like Charlie Coulibaly.”

      "Charlie Coulibaly" appears to be a mash-up referring to Charlie Hedbo, the satirical magazine targeted last week, and Amedy Coulibaly, the shooter who killed a policewoman last Thursday and died during a stand-off in a kosher supermarket in which four Jewish hostages were killed.

  • When blasphemy is bigotry: The need to recognise historical trauma when discussing Charlie Hebdo
    • Blasphemy porn, coupled with torture porn, is both a method , and a signal, that is a signal of domination, and a method of social control, and disheartening resistance.

      "Krauthammer concludes that "One could not have designed a more symbolic representation of the Islamist warning about where Western freedom ultimately leads than yesterday's Washington Post photo of a uniformed American woman holding a naked Arab man on a leash." Like Culture Wars, Krauthammer feels that "The pictures of female US soldiers mocking, humiliating and dominating naked and abused Arab men . . .do not reflect, however, the ethos of the US military," but they do represent "the most deeply psychologically charged - and most deeply buried - aspect of the entire war on terrorism, exactly as Osama bin Laden would have scripted it," namely the belief that America is not synonymous with the moral corruption of women and the dissemination of pornography as a form of control.

      Both Rush Limbaugh and George Will were quick to chime in with similar observations. America, according to both, is about pornography. "Americans," he told readers of the Washington Post, " . . . should not flinch from this fact: That pornography is, almost inevitably, part of what empire looks like." Empire, ... "is always about domination. Domination for self defense perhaps. Domination for the good of the dominated arguably. But domination." "

      WAPO- The biggest threat to French free speech isn’t terrorism. It’s the [[zionist run \ government.
      By[Law Professor ] Jonathan Turley
      Notably, among the demonstrators this past week at the Place de la Republique was Sasha Reingewirtz, president of the Union of Jewish Students, who told NBC News, “We are here to remind [the terrorists] that religion can be freely criticized.” The Union of Jewish Students apparently didn’t feel as magnanimous in 2013, when it successfully sued Twitter over posts deemed anti-Semitic. The student president at the time dismissed objections from civil libertarians, saying the social networking site was “making itself an accomplice and offering a highway for racists and anti-Semites.” The government declared the tweets illegal, and a French court ordered Twitter to reveal the identities of anti-Semitic posters.
      ..
      The cases have been wide-ranging and bizarre. In 2008, for example, Brigitte Bardot was convicted for writing a letter to then-Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy about how she thought Muslims and homosexuals were ruining France. In 2011, fashion designer John Galliano was found guilty of making anti-Semitic comments against at least three people in a Paris cafe. In 2012, the government criminalized denial of the Armenian genocide (a law later overturned by the courts, but Holocaust denial remains a crime). In 2013, a French mother was sentenced for “glorifying a crime” after she allowed her son, named Jihad, to go to school wearing a shirt that said “I am a bomb.” Last year, Interior Minister Manuel Valls moved to ban performances by comedian Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala, declaring that he was “no longer a comedian” but was rather an “anti-Semite and racist.” It is easy to silence speakers who spew hate or obnoxious words, but censorship rarely ends with those on the margins of our society.

    • the real danger is from new atheism -

      With all due respect to the great cartoonist Ann Telnaes, it is simply not the case that Charlie Hebdo “were equal opportunity offenders.” Like Bill Maher, Sam Harris and other anti-Islam obsessives, mocking Judaism, Jews and/or Israel is something they will rarely (if ever) do. If forced, they can point to rare and isolated cases where they uttered some criticism of Judaism or Jews, but the vast bulk of their attacks are reserved for Islam and Muslims, not Judaism and Jews. Parody, free speech and secular atheism are the pretexts; anti-Muslim messaging is the primary goal and the outcome. And this messaging – this special affection for offensive anti-Islam speech – just so happens to coincide with, to feed, the militaristic foreign policy agenda of their governments and culture.

They were not ordinary Jews, he said, but a “hybrid race of shape shifters” who have extraordinary abilities. “They know how to get in everywhere,” he said. “They are master manipulators.”

      Mouhanad Khorchide, a professor of Islamic pedagogy at the University of Munster in Germany told The New York Times last week that while he sees many young Muslims identifying more strongly with their religion he considers it a “hollow religiosity.”

      Pellegrino added, "Mastelloni's report showed that there was an organic link between Ordine Nuovo, a right-wing terrorist group, and the Mossad. Despite the anti-semitism of most right-wingers, some sought alliances with Mossad and with certain other military secret services." In particular, Mossad is now suspected of being behind the death of Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, a well-known left-wing publisher who was killed by explosives he was carrying, supposedly while preparing a bomb... the fact remains that a number of former Mossad directors are presently being tried in connection with the Argo 16 case. In this context, it seems very possible that Mossad was taking a close interest in what was happening in Italy at the time. While denying that he said that Moro had been killed for being "too pro-Arab", as some press reports have stated, Pellegrino did say that it was only logical that if Moro was pro-Arab, then Mossad might have considered him a threat to Israel.

      ROME (Jan. 17)

      An Italian judge investigating the Red Brigade has accused Israel of trying to destabilize Italy so that the United States would rely on it more for security in the Mediterranean area.

      According to an interview published in the daily II Messaggerio today. Judge Ferdinando Imposimato claimed that up to about 1978, Italian terrorist groups had been infiltrated by Israel’s secret service. “The plan was intended to reduce Italy to a country racked by civil war so that the U.S. would be forced to depend more on Israel for security in the Mediterranean,” he told the newspaper.

      Imposimato said he learned this from the confessions of jailed terrorists who had turned informers. He said the Red Brigade received support from Libya, Syria, and the Palestine Liberation Organization. According to II Messaggerio, Imposimato is in charge of the investigation into the kidnapping and murder of former Premier Aldo Moro by the Red Brigade in 1978.

      I Tried to Warn You About Sleazy Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2003

      When Vicky Ward profiled Jeffrey Epstein for Vanity Fair, allegations of his attempted seduction of two young sisters were excised from the final piece

      He has a way of spooking you, does Epstein. Or he did. My babies were born prematurely, dangerously so; he’d asked which hospital I was giving birth at—and I was so afraid that somehow, with all his connections to the academic and medical community, that he was coming for my little ones that I put security on them in the NICU.

      When they’d been released home some months later, I went out to my first party. There was Jeffrey Epstein, sucking a lollipop. “Vicky,” he said, “you look so pretty.”

      "In documents revealed Thursday – including a sworn seven-page declaration that Jacobs submitted along with a summary from his attorneys of problems obtaining documents from Sands – Jacobs describes an effort he launched after arriving in Macau in May 2009 to rid the casino floor of "loan sharks and prostitution."

      "This project was met with concern as (company) senior executives informed me that the prior prostitution strategy had been personally approved by Adelson," Jacobs said in the documents.

      In his court filing, Jacobs alleges other documents that haven't been turned over include records of misuse of "blue card' work permits and the hiring of illegal workers in Macau; emails and records of Adelson controlling a "Chairman's Club" allowing favored members, including known or suspected organized crime figures, exclusive access to Sands China's most luxurious accommodations; and email requests from Adelson to a Macau lawmaker who Jacobs said was hired as outside counsel after Jacobs was fired."

Eventually they get Epstein to agree to plead guilty to a state charge, allegedly sentenced to 18 months, in fact it was 13 months and for 16 hours a day he was allowed to go to his mansion in Palm Beach. So he got basically no jail time. He is a registered sex offender.

    • Unfortunately this lawsuit echoes 'age old anti Semitic canards' . It is essentilly about a conspiracy to cover up and forgo prosecution of the traficking of Gentile women by
      wealthy Jewish men ( so called white slavery) committed by Israeli lobby members inside the federal government

      "Defendant, ALAN M. DERSHOWITZ, was one of a very large team of lawyers
      involved in defending Jeffrey Epstein during his criminal investigation, and according to
      DERSHOWITZ'S own public statements, DERSHOWITZ was responsible for negotiating
      Epstein's secret deal with the federal government which afforded protection not only to Epstein but to various of his associates as well."

      link to images.politico.com

      Josh Gerstein repeated the Dershowtiz defamation charges in politico., claiming that Clinton was never on Epstein's private island, despite public evidence elsewhere. It is not clear if Gerstein is part of the 'various associates' of Epstein protected by the federal court order.

      "Jane Does No. 1 and No. 2, who were, respectively, 12 and 13 at the time they were victimized,received confidential monetary settlements in civil cases.

      The U.S. Attorney’s Office failed to notify victims prior to striking a non-prosecution agreement with Epstein on Sept. 24, 2007, and didn’t tell them of the agreement’s existence for at least nine months, the ruling says.

      On June 27, 2008, the U.S. Attorney’s Office told the victims that Epstein planned to plead guilty to state charges three days later. But federal prosecutors failed to disclose that his pleas to the state charges arose from his federal non-prosecution agreement and would bar federal charges.

      “A well-connected billionaire got away with molesting many girls,” Edwards said. “These girls should at least know how and why he was able to get away with these crimes. This ruling will allow us access to the documents that will provide insight into how that happened. I suspect that the answers revealed by these documents will ultimately allow us to invalidate that agreement and permit prosecution of Mr. Epstein.

      As a member of Epstein’s defense team, Dershowitz arranged the deal that kept the victims from telling their tales in court, but sent Epstein to prison on only a relatively minor charge. According to the CVRA plaintiffs, “Dershowitz helped negotiate an agreement that provided immunity from federal prosecution in the Southern District of Florida not only to Epstein, but also to ‘any potential co-conspirators of Epstein.” If the allegations against Dershowitz are true, he engineered an agreement that insulated himself from prosecution as a co-conspirator

  • Dershowitz named in lawsuit alleging abuse of underage sex slave
    • Liberal Zionism is about 'Freedom', and Modernity is about all of humanity becoming Dershowitzs, especially in social license, or as Charles Krauthammer puts it:

      “There is one fundamental issue at stake that dares not speak its name. This was is about—deeply about—sex. For the jihadists, at stake in the war against the infidels is the control of women. Western freedom means the end of women’s mastery by men. They prize their traditional prerogatives that allow men to keep their women barefoot in the kitchen as illiterate economic and sexual slaves…

      “The case the jihadists make against freedom is that wherever it goes, especially the United States and Europe, it brings sexual license and corruption, decadence and depravity.

      “Through this lens, Abu Ghraib is an ‘I told you so’ played out in an Arab capital recorded on film…a pictorial representation of precisely [that]."

      In 1902, Solomon Ehrmann envisioned a future in which “all of mankind will have been jewified and joined in union with the B’nai B’rith.” When that happens, “not only the B’nai B’rith but all of Judaism will have fulfilled its task."

  • The 'bait & switch' politics of liberal Zionism
    • It is important to remember that there was a near consensus of rabbis opposing Zionism prior to the creation of Israel. They also considered secular reform Judaism to be a kind of heresy. Moreover they condemned by Torah many modern industries which were once illegal or a kind of vice including banking, entertainment, gaming.

      Thus modern Judaism and its idological twin zionist evangelical Christianity are both expressions of something new, and have nothing to do with pre-heretical Judaism.

      But it’s unlikely to last. Although the ouster of Wieseltier and editor Frank Foer had nothing to do with their being Jewish, the likely end of TNR’s Jewish sensibility may portend the declining influence of Jewish culture in American intellectual life. One driver of that decline will be assimilation. With the intermarriage rate among non-Orthodox Jews now above 70 percent, Jewish identity in the United States is becoming less and less distinct

      Under literary editor Leon Wieseltier, the magazine remained an indispensable source of commentary on Jewish history and culture. And inside the magazine, yiddishkeit was rarely far away. I remember once hearing Wieseltier explain that he had asked an author to submit his book review by Rosh Hodesh. “That’s how Malcolm Cowley used to do it,” he added wryly. The implication was clear. Cowley had been TNR’s literary editor in the 1930s, when American Jews were still outsiders. Now his successor was a graduate of Yeshivah of Flatbush. American Jews had arrived.
