Keith welcomes Professor Ray Goodwin of the Barnes Review to discuss ADL director Abe Foxman’s latest book, entitled Viral Hate, and the concerted efforts to censor discourse on the Internet.
Germans forced to pay hundreds of millions more for “Holocaust” reparations, Rabbis’ informing their flocks to refrain from reporting molestation cases, and the ADL complaining about European speakers at an “anti-Semitism” conference. PLUS: Is the ‘Chinese’ spy scandal more likely of Israeli origin? AND: Part II of the Israeli mystery woman at the heart of the OJ Simpson murder case.
Guess who’s behind the effort to legalize pot in America? Keith identifies those who really stand to benefit from the de-criminalization of marijuana and why well meaning “patriots” are being duped into being their lackeys. In the last 15 minutes of the show, Keith shares Part I of an essay by Michael Collins Piper about the Israeli “mystery woman” who may have been responsible for the “O.J. Simspon Murders.” Tune in next week for Part II of this cliffhanger. This is a MUST LISTEN! You won’t hear this stuff anywhere else.

How do you wink at a Muslim? According to one Tennessee politician, you bring the butt of your 12-gauge shotgun to your shoulder and close one eye as you use the other to zero-in on the head of “them there” turban-headed jihadists. Apparently it helps if you’re a middle-aged white man with a five o’clock shadow and a cowboy hat. I personally take umbrage to that, because I’m a middle-aged Tennessean with a five o’clock shadow and a cowboy hat that doesn’t want to kill “them there” Mooslims.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A Coffee County commissioner’s Facebook post suggesting Muslims are best greeted from behind a rifle barrel is prompting demands for an apology. Commissioner Barry West’s post follows a string of anti-Muslim acts throughout Middle Tennessee in recent years, including at least four incidents of mosque vandalism. Opposition to a new mosque in Rutherford County was so strong it took federal Justice Department intervention to open it last year. West played no active role in any of those incidents. He just put an image on his Facebook page, which shows a man aiming a shotgun under the phrase “How to wink at a Muslim.” But even that put a chill through Muslims in Middle Tennessee…The Boston Marathon bombing prompted a nationwide uptick in invitations to violence against Muslims, said Hatem Bazian, director of the Islamophobia Research & Documentation Project at the University of California Berkeley.
Unfortunately, the Boston Marathon bombing has re-ignited fading tensions between Muslims and the rest of American society.
A 39-year-old Muslim cab driver who served in the Iraq war says that an executive from an aviation company accused him of being a jihadist and broke his jaw in what activists are calling a hate crime. Mohamed A. Salim told The Washington Post that Emerald Aviation President Ed Dahlberg attacked him after he picked him up at Country Club of Fairfax in Northern Virginia at around 2 a.m. on Friday. Dahlberg had been drinking and was told that he would have to finish his open beer before getting into the cab. Salim recorded audio of the encounter on his cell phone. Dahlberg can be heard asking Salim, who emigrated from Somalia, to define “jihad” and then lumping him in with “radical fucking Muslims blowing people up all over the world.” “Denounce those motherfuckers now!” Dahlberg demands. “If you’re a fucking Muslim flying jets into the fucking World Trade Center then fuck you. I will slice your fucking throat right now.”
Just being identified as a Muslim is enough to put you in harms way. On April 27, state bomb investigators responded to a report of a suspicious backpack left at the home of a Muslim resident in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
From the Providence Journal (abridged):
Nimer Ead, a 55-year-year-old design engineer, lives on the bottom floor of a three-family house with his wife and a stepson. He said a neighbor spotted a tan-and-black backpack in Ead’s back yard and called police. The backpack said “USA Bomb” on it, Ead said.
Colorlines did a great story about anti-Muslim crimes in the immediate aftermath of the Boston bombings:
On April 17, a white man harassed and punched a Palestinian woman in Medford, Massachusetts, calling her a “terrorist” and blaming her for the deadly bombing attack at the Boston Marathon. Hema Abolaban, a physician, was walking down the street with a friend when they were approached. Malden Patch reported:
“He was screaming ‘F_ you Muslims! You are terrorists! I hate you! You are involved in the Boston explosions! F_ you!’” Abolaban remembered. “Oh my lord, I was extremely shocked.” She said the man – described as a white male in his thirties wearing dark sunglasses – kept shouting and walking toward her as she backed away. “I did not say anything to him,” she said. “Not even that we aren’t terrorists…he was so aggressive.”
Abolaban is not alone. The New York Post reports that a Bangladeshi man was beaten up by Latino men outside a Bronx Applebee’s restaurant. He, too, was blamed for the Boston bombing.
On Tuesday, an airplane leaving Boston’s Logan Airport was grounded this week after passengers reported that two men were speaking Arabic on the plane, Boston’s Fox 25 reported. We have been here before. Fueled by a hysterical demagoguery which has saturated the political climate, Islamophobic hate crimes have been a defining feature of life for South Asian, Arab, Middle Eastern and Muslim communities since Sept. 11.
Guess who’s helping fuel the flames against the Muslim world? You guessed it–Faux FUCKIN’ News. SUPRISE! SUPRISE!
Check this out “patriots”:
Former Fox News contributor Jane Hall says that her ex-colleagues at the conservative network have been “waging a campaign” to link the words “radical” and “Islam” following the bombings at the Boston Marathon earlier this month.
In a Sunday discussion on CNN, host Howard Kurtz noted that after briefly coming together in the aftermath of the tragedy in Boston, the media had returned to its “ideological sniping.”
Current TV host Cenk Uygur told Kurtz that Fox News had led the charge in making the airwaves more vitriolic by “talking about Muslims, which is ironic because this is the same Bill O’Reilly who kept calling Dr. Tiller, “Dr. Tiller The Baby Killer,” until Scott Roeder shot him.”
“So here’s a fundamentalist who’s Christian worrying about fundamentalists who are Muslims, and driving people to violence,” Uygur said.
Kurtz argued that “it’s not entirely just on one side” because MSNBC’s Alex Wagner had accused two Fox News personalities of being on the verge of suggesting that President Barack Obama was a secret Muslim.
“It’s a funny way of balancing things out, Howard,” Uygur disagreed. “I mean, on the one side you have a guy who keeps saying, ‘Muslim! Terrorist! Muslim! Terrorist!’ Trying to equate the two. On the other side, you have someone saying, ‘Hey, maybe that’s not that wise, and maybe they’re implying something here that they shouldn’t be implying.’”
“So, I don’t equate those two as equal,” he insisted. “Just to say that one side does something 1 percent or 10 percent may be wrong doesn’t justify the other side doing something 100 percent wrong.”
“I think that Fox is practically waging a campaign to link the words ‘radical’ and ‘Islam’,” Hall agreed. “I don’t think radical Islam is a religion. I think what happens can be a perversion, from what I understand, of religion. I don’t think the media should shy away from looking at how these young men got radicalized, what [dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev] learned when he went back to Russia… But I think there is a difference endlessly linking this and saying, you know, helpfully having visuals that say radical Islam with these young men’s pictures.”
Meet the Red Bull guzzling, doughnut chomping, computer-game-addicted dolts who are cultivating terrorism around the world:
Op-ed by Vic Pittman Salem-News.com
“I saw men, women and children die during that time. I never thought I would kill that many people. In fact, I thought I couldn’t kill anyone at all.” ~ Former US drone operator Brandon Bryant
(SAN BLAS, Mexico) – A little after 10:00 p.m., and a serial killer is getting ready to make his move. He has watched and waited for this moment for some time.
He watches his victim get out of a cab and dig in his pockets for money. Two of his children run out to the porch to greet their daddy. The killer presses a button and watches as the victim, the taxi driver and the two children are vaporized. Other people in the house, the man’s wife, parents and three other children are badly injured and burnt by the high explosive.
The house next door partially collapses, killing an elderly woman and injuring her grandson. But this is just the beginning.
Neighbors and emergency personnel arrive and begin trying to help the victims. There is chaos…children screaming, people wailing and the cries of the burnt and injured. Several people are trapped under rubble.
When enough people have gathered, the killer presses the button again. Fifteen seconds later, all those at the scene are vaporized or blown to shreds. The killer high-fives his partner. In two hours he will be off work! They are planning on driving in to Las Vegas, have some cocktails maybe pick up some girls.
On the other side of the world, at the crime scene, the misery, grief and suffering is just beginning. The gathering and grouping of body parts, the burials, the amputations and lifetime medical traumas, the traumatized children, the destroyed lives. But tonight in Vegas, it is party party party for this 22-year old serial killer from Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, some 7550 miles away from the carnage. The biggest threat he will face tonight is a hangover tomorrow.
He is a drone “pilot”. He and his kind have redefined the words “coward”, “terrorist”, and “sociopath”. He is the new face of American warfare. He is a government trained and equipped serial killer. But unlike Ted Bundy or John Gacy, he does not have to worry about getting caught. It is his job.
One thing that the drone terrorism/assassination program has revealed to the world is how racist we Americans are. American life is precious… when Americans die we expect the entire world to weep at our feet along with us. Three Americans die in a senseless act of violence and murder at the Boston Marathon, and the entire country grieves and the president makes heartfelt speeches. Where were all the speeches and expressions of grief when the US bombed the school in Chenagai, Afghanistan? Didn’t hear about that senseless act of violence and murder? Of course not.

In the wake of the double bombing in Boston, Police Commissioner Ed Davis told the Boston Herald that he’s looking to put surveillance drones in the sky before the next Marathon.
“We need to harden our target here,” Davis said. “We need to make sure terrorists understand that if they’re thinking about coming here, we have certain things in place that would make that not a good idea. Because they could hit any place. They’re going to go for the softest, easiest thing to hit.”
Earlier this week, Michael Toscano, president of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, also referenced the Boston bombings while make his pitch for widespread deployment of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
“UAVs could be an important tool in the tool kit for first responders in the event of an emergency,” he told US News and World Report. “Whether it is in response to a natural disaster or a tragedy like we saw in Boston, UAVs can be quickly deployed to provide first responders with critical situational awareness in areas too dangerous or difficult for manned aircraft to reach. Our industry is working to develop technologies to provide first responders with the best tools possible to do their jobs safely as they work to protect our communities.”
Israel, which regularly uses drones to kill, maim and intimidate Palestinians and their Arab neighbors, also corners the market for these deadly and intrusive devices. In a Salon article, entitled Israel’s Drone Dominance, Jefferson Morley writes:
If you want to know how drones may change American airspace in coming years, just look to Israel, where the unmanned aerial vehicle market is thriving and drones are considered a reliable instrument of “homeland security.”
“There are three explanations for Israel’s success in becoming a world leader in development and production of UAVs,” a top Israeli official explained to the Jerusalem Post last year. “We have unbelievable people and innovation, combat experience that helps us understand what we need and immediate operational use since we are always in a conflict which allows us to perfect our systems.”Israel markets its expertise in defense to the rest of the world. Israeli academic Neve Gordon cites a glossy government brochure on drones titled “Israel Homeland Security: Opportunities for Industrial Cooperation,” which boasts, “no other advanced technology country has such a large proportion of citizens with real time experience in the army, security and police forces.” The chapter called “Learning from Israel’s Experience” notes that “many of these professionals continue to work as international consultants and experts after leaving the Israel Defense Forces, police or other defense and security organizations.”
The work has paid off when it comes to drones: The Jewish state is the single largest exporter of drones in the world, responsible for 41 percent of all UAVs exported between 2001 and 2011, according to a database compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. Israeli companies export drone technology to at least 24 countries, including the United States.
Last year, President Obama signed the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, which compels the Federal Aviation Administration to modify U.S. airspace rules and allow for widespread deployment of UAVs by 2015. Since this legislation was passed, applications have been pouring in from law enforcement agencies and private corporations seeking permission to place their own eyes in the sky.
In places like California, Texas and Washington State, police officers in recent weeks have intensified their demands for surveillance drones, a necessary addition they say to their arsenal of tools to help thwart crime. The Federal Aviation Administration has yet to finalize plans to put drones in U.S. airspace, but by the end of the decade as many as 30,000 UAVs are expected to be soaring through the sky.
Of course all of this is the result of intense lobbying by the powerful drone industry, which paid out big money to buy off your local congress-critter.
According to a report by the Center for Responsive Politics:
Dronemakers have sought congressional help to speed their entry into a domestic market valued in the billions. The 60-member House of Representatives’ ‘drone caucus’ —officially, the House Unmanned Systems Caucus—has helped push that agenda. And over the last four years, caucus members have drawn nearly $8M in drone-related campaign contributions.
For those complacent Americans who still take this issue lightly, a new study by researchers at the New York University School of Law and the Stanford University Law School, entitled “Living Under Drones,” should help put things into perspective.
According to the report:
Drones hover 24 hours a day over communities in northwest Pakistan, striking homes, vehicles and public spaces without warning. Their presence terrorizes men, women and children, giving rise to anxiety and psychological trauma among civilian communities. Those living under drones have to face the constant worry that a deadly strike may be fired at any moment and the knowledge that they are powerless to protect themselves.

Was slain Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamarlin Tsarnaev coerced, blackmailed or manipulated by Mossad agents posing as FBI agents?
Mark Glenn and the crew over at The Ugly Truth have produced a series of radio broadcasts making a compelling argument that he was. Check these out:
As with any likely false-flag scenario, one must ask Cui Bono? ~ who benefits?
The American people certainly did not benefit, nor did the Muslim world of which Tsarnaev identified. Attacking a sporting event attended by innocent men, women and children from around the world makes no strategic sense unless the perpetrators intended to entice retaliation. It stands to reason then, that those perpetrators would have to pose as their enemy to bring about a charged response against that enemy.
So who stands to benefit from such an operation?
Ron Dermer, a diplomatic advisor consultant to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and candidate for the post of Israeli ambassador to Washington, told a closed meeting of U.S. Jewish leaders in New York last week that the Boston marathon bombings would increase American support for Israel – just as that support increased following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
Dermer made his remarks last Wednesday, two days after explosions rocked the Boston Marathon, killing three people and wounding nearly 200 more. Dermer, considered one of Netanyahu’s closest associates, is currently on vacation, after having finished his stint as a senior adviser at the Prime Minister’s Bureau.
“The bulk of the American people stand firmly with Israel and identify with Israel,” Dermer said, in a video filmed by blogger Jacob Kornbluh. “If you can look, historically, there was a big change after 9/11, and I am sure that after the tragic bombing in Boston, people will identify more with Israel and its struggle against terrorism and we can maintain that support.”
Commenting on the aforementioned article, The Ugly Truth’s Mark Glenn writes:
Sound familiar? It should. Netanyahu said virtually the EXACT same thing in the aftermath of the Israeli engineered act of war against America on 9/11, saying the attacks were ‘good’ as they would generate ‘immediate sympathy for Israel.’
Now that we have established Cui Bono, where do we go from here in establishing links between the benefactors and the perpetrators? Indulge me.
It’s a long and arduous journey to the truth. Let’s begin…
The FBI now admits that they made contact with Tamarlin Tsarnaev in 2011 but failed to find any incriminating information about him.
As first reported by CBS News correspondent Bob Orr, the FBI interviewed Tsarnaev, the elder brother of at-large bombing suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, at the request of a foreign government to see if he had any extremist ties, but failed to find any linkage.
Both Tsarnaev brothers were legal permanent residents of the U.S. There is no evidence so far that either brother received any tactical training.
CBS News correspondent John Miller reports it is likely Russia asked to have the elder Tsarnaev vetted because of suspected ties to Chechen extremists.
The FBI is likely to have run a background check, running his name through all the relevant databases, including those of other agencies, checking on his communications and all of his overseas travel. Miller reports that culminated in a sit-down interview where they probably asked him a lot of questions about his life, his contacts, his surroundings. All of this was then written in a report and sent it to the requesting government.
So the FBI responded to a tip from Russia in 2011, right? However, NBC News reports that the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB) provided FBI with information on Tsarnaev as recently as Novemebr 2012:
A police official source in Makhachkala, Dagestan, told NBC News on Sunday that the Russian internal security service reached out to the FBI last November with some questions about Tamerlan, and handed over a copy of case file on him.
Tsarnaev had first popped up on the local police radar in Dagestan last summer, the source said. During routine surveillance of an individual known to be involved in the militant Islamic underground movement, the police witnessed Tamerlan meet the latter at a Salafi mosque in Makhachkala, the police official said.
It was one of six times in total that surveillance officials witnessed Tsarnaev meeting this militant at the same mosque, according to the police official. The militant contact later disappeared, the police official said, but so did Tsarnaev before investigators had a chance to speak with him. The FBI never responded, according to the Dagestani police official.
So why didn’t the FBI follow up? According to Justin Raimondo of Antiwar.com:
The problem is that the Chechen “freedom fighters” are US allies, along with their ideological compatriots in Libya and Syria… Although support for the Chechen independence movement is bipartisan, that troublesome little sect known as the neoconservatives has actively backed the Chechen cause from the get-go: an impressive list of prominent neocons, including Bill Kristol, sits on the board of the Chechens’ principal US propaganda outfit, the American Committee for Peace in the Caucasus (formerly the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya). According to Glen Howard, head of the Jamestown Foundation, a neocon outfit focused on Central Asia, the Chechens aren’t Islamist terrorists, they’re just cuddly “nationalists” rebelling against a Russia that has gone “fascist.” “The Russians are trying to treat Chechen separatism through the prism of 9/11 and terror rather than as a nationalist movement that has been defying Kremlin rule for 200 years,” says Howard.
Then there’s this explanation from neocon mouthpiece Eli Lake of The Daily Beast:
There were good reasons that the tip didn’t trigger a more aggressive American investigation, current and former intelligence and law-enforcement officials tell The Daily Beast.
Those officials pointed to the FSB’s habit of treating much behavior by Chechens as suspicious, and nearly all such behavior as terror-related. The Tsarnaev request, they speculated, was likely triggered by the FSB’s concern that he would participate in or provide support to Chechen insurrectionists in Russia, rather that by any sense of a threat to American interests.
Here’s another theory: Did the FBI ignore Russia’s warning because Tsarnaev was working as an intelligence asset for the U.S. government? There’s no evidence to reach that conclusion, but all things should be taken into consideration.
Here’s yet another theory to consider: Did Tsarnaev THINK he was working as an intelligence asset for the U.S. government? Was Tsarnaev lured, coerced or blackmailed into carrying out intelligence operations by foreign operatives posing as U.S. intelligence or law enforcement agents?
So far, the FBI admits to coming in contact with Tsarnaev on ONLY ONE occasion. However, Tsarnaev’s mother told The Daily Telegraph that her son “first aroused suspicions in the United States in 2008, and FBI agents met him on ‘at least five’ occasions afterwards, the last time a year and a half ago.
She said: ‘They came and asked him, what are you doing, what are you up to?
‘They said Tamerlan was an influential lad, he had the personality of a leader. And they asked me, ‘Don’t you have any thoughts that he could organise some kind of group of a terrorist persuasion?’
‘They said they’d seen what kind of videos he’d been looking at, and they told me that they keep young leaders among Muslims under control so there aren’t any bombings, so that they don’t fall under someone’s influence.’
Mrs Tsarnaeva said FBI agents contacted her son by telephone a final time three days after the marathon bombing, one day before he died.
“They said he was suspected of involvement and told him he needed to come in for questioning,” she said. “He told them to come and find him and hung up. He was fed up with talking to them.”
I should stress that the mother said her son had been contacted “at least five” times by the FBI in addition to the single occasion that the FBI admits to. The last time was three days after the Boston Marathon bombing, something that the FBI denies. According to the Boston Herald:
The FBI is strongly refuting a report by Britain’s Channel 4 News that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was contacted by federal agents last week, days after the Marathon bombings and days before he allegedly murdered an MIT police officer and before he was killed in a gunfight with cops and his fugitive brother held Greater Boston hostage for an entire day.
“Story is false,” a spokeswoman for the agency said in an email response to a Herald inquiry.
In a separate interview with Russia Today (RT), Tsarnaev’s mother said the FBI “used to come [to our] home, they used to talk to me…they were telling me that he [the older, 26-y/o Tamerlan] was really an extremist leader and that they were afraid of him. They told me whatever information he is getting, he gets from these extremist sites… they were controlling him, they were controlling his every step…and now they say that this is a terrorist act! Never ever is this true, my sons are innocent!”
So is the FBI lying or intentionally withholding information about multiple contacts with Tsarnaev? Maybe not. That’s not to say that Tsarnaev’s mother is lying either. But if the FBI didn’t control Tsarnaev’s “every step,” as his mother claims, then who did?
We’ve now come full circle. We know that Israel is the one entity that stands to benefit from the attacks in Boston. But is it in their character to pose as U.S. intelligence of law enforcement assets in order to manipulate patsies into performing actions that serve their interests? Oh yeah! After all, the motto of their intelligence service is “By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War.
In a January 2012 article for Foreign Policy, entitled False Flag, Mark Perry writes:
Buried deep in the archives of America’s intelligence services are a series of memos, written during the last years of President George W. Bush’s administration, that describe how Israeli Mossad officers recruited operatives belonging to the terrorist group Jundallah by passing themselves off as American agents. According to two U.S. intelligence officials, the Israelis, flush with American dollars and toting U.S. passports, posed as CIA officers in recruiting Jundallah operatives — what is commonly referred to as a “false flag” operation.
The memos, as described by the sources, one of whom has read them and another who is intimately familiar with the case, investigated and debunked reports from 2007 and 2008 accusing the CIA, at the direction of the White House, of covertly supporting Jundallah — a Pakistan-based Sunni extremist organization. Jundallah, according to the U.S. government and published reports, is responsible for assassinating Iranian government officials and killing Iranian women and children.
But while the memos show that the United States had barred even the most incidental contact with Jundallah, according to both intelligence officers, the same was not true for Israel’s Mossad. The memos also detail CIA field reports saying that Israel’s recruiting activities occurred under the nose of U.S. intelligence officers, most notably in London, the capital of one of Israel’s ostensible allies, where Mossad officers posing as CIA operatives met with Jundallah officials.
The officials did not know whether the Israeli program to recruit and use Jundallah is ongoing. Nevertheless, they were stunned by the brazenness of the Mossad’s efforts.
“It’s amazing what the Israelis thought they could get away with,” the intelligence officer said. “Their recruitment activities were nearly in the open. They apparently didn’t give a damn what we thought.”
So if Mossad agents would be so bold as to pose as CIA agents abroad, who’s to say they aren’t posing as FBI agents or CIA agents on American soil? Some may say that they would never dare do something like that right under our noses. Really? In an August 2010 article for the American Conservative, entitled Mossad in America, former CIA station chief Phillip Giraldi writes:
Israeli government claims that it does not spy on the United States are intended for the media and popular consumption. The reality is that Israel’s intelligence agencies target the United States intensively, particularly in pursuit of military and dual-use civilian technology. Among nations considered to be friendly to Washington, Israel leads all others in its active espionage directed against American companies and the Defense Department. It also dominates two commercial sectors that enable it to extend its reach inside America’s domestic infrastructure: airline and telecommunications security. Israel is believed to have the ability to monitor nearly all phone records originating in the United States, while numerous Israeli air-travel security companies are known to act as the local Mossad stations.
As tensions with Iran increase, sources in the counterintelligence community report that Israeli agents have become more aggressive in targeting Muslims living in the United States as well as in operating against critics. There have been a number of cases reported to the FBI about Mossad officers who have approached leaders in Arab-American communities and have falsely represented themselves as “U.S. intelligence.” Because few Muslims would assist an Israeli, this is done to increase the likelihood that the target will cooperate. It’s referred to as a “false flag” operation.
Mossad officers sought to recruit Arab-Americans as sources willing to inform on their associates and neighbors. The approaches, which took place in New York and New Jersey, were reportedly handled clumsily, making the targets of the operation suspicious. These Arab-Americans turned down the requests for cooperation, and some of the contacts were eventually reported to the FBI, which has determined that at least two of the Mossad officers are, ironically, Israeli Arabs operating out of Israel’s mission to the United Nations in New York under cover as consular assistants.
In another bizarre case, U.S.S. Liberty survivor Phil Tourney was recently accosted in Southern California by a foreigner who eventually identified himself as an Israeli government representative. Tourney was taunted, and the Israeli threatened both him and journalist Mark Glenn, who has been reporting on the Liberty story. Tourney was approached in a hotel lounge, and it is not completely clear how the Israeli was able to identify him. But he knew exactly who Tourney was, as the official referred to the Liberty, saying that the people who had been killed on board had gotten what they deserved. There were a number of witnesses to the incident, including Tourney’s wife. The threat has been reported to the FBI, which is investigating, but Tourney and Glenn believe that the incident is not being taken seriously by the bureau.
FBI sources indicate that the increase in Mossad activity is a major problem, particularly when Israelis are posing as U.S. government officials, but they also note that there is little they can do to stop it as the Justice Department refuses to initiate any punitive action or prosecutions of the Mossad officers who have been identified as involved in the illegal activity.
If you don’t want to take Giraldi’s word for it, then perhaps you’d be more inclined to believe The Washington Post. In a September 2010 post of his “Spy Talk” column, Jeff Stein quoted a second former CIA official who supported Giraldi’s account:
“Oh, sure, they do that,” Stein quoted the unnamed official as saying, “They’re all over the place.”
The Israelis are masters of deception and have a long history of wearing multiple disguises. Here’s just one random example from 1988:
NEW YORK–ABC News President Roone Arledge has sharply protested to Israeli officials what he said were Israel security forces who posed as an ABC News crew to lure a Palestinian youth to his arrest, the network said Wednesday.
ABC News President Roone Arledge has sharply protested to Israeli officials what he said were Israel security forces who posed as an ABC News crew to lure a Palestinian youth to his arrest, the network said Wednesday.
Yediot Ahrnot, a Hebrew-language newspaper in Jerusalem, reported the incident and said it occurred in a village 20 miles north of Jerusalem. The newspaper said villagers claimed that Israeli security forces posing as an ABC News crew lured the Palestinian youth into their car on the pretext of seeking an interview then arrested him for throwing firebombs.
What role the Tsarnaev brothers played in the Boston Marathon bombing is still unclear, but there is ample evidence to suggest that they were manipulated by shadow elements to perform actions that would ultimately implicate them.
Russian ‘Alpha’ Special Forces team-veteran and vice-president of its International Association, Aleksey Filatov, believes there is more to the case than meets the eye. He emphasizes, firstly, that the origin and religious beliefs of the suspect, along with the specifics of the bombing, have all been carefully pre-meditated and planned by someone within the United States in order to distract the public from the true identity and long-term aims of the actual planners.
“Putting a young Chechen in those shoes was top-notch professionalism in distracting everyone from the true identity and motives of the planner.”

From the April 16 edition of CBN’s The 700 Club:
PAT ROBERTSON: Our hearts go out to these people who were wounded and injured. On a joyous day, Patriots’ Day, in Boston and the Boston Marathon draws people in from all around the world, about 26 or 7 thousand participants about 17,000 I understand it finished — crossed the finish line before this bomb went off.
But to think that somebody would be so vicious, so evil as to want to kill little children, and maim families who were there rejoicing in a sporting contest on a beautiful day in Boston, it just makes you sick at your stomach. Don’t talk to me about religion of peace, no way.
EEE–Yikes! Doesn’t that creepy old man make your skin crawl? I ask any woman out there: Would you let Pat Robertson babysit your child?
Pat, who considers himself to be Jesus’ BFF, is upset about the deaths and maiming of a few American children. I am too. Let’s bring the responsible parties to justice. Still, let’s put this thing into its proper perspective, shall we?
Who really kills children and steals their joy on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis?
From September 29, 2000 to this day, 1,516 Palestinian children have been killed by the Israeli murderers whom Pat Robertson pledges his allegiance.
Hey, Pat? Considering that Israel was founded on Judaism, DON’T TALK TO ME ABOUT RELIGION OF PEACE, NO WAY!
Pat is troubled by American “families [killed or maimed while] rejoicing in a sporting contest on a beautiful day in Boston.”
Hey, Pat? You mean the same kind of beautiful day before Israeli Occupation Forces opened fire on helpless animals in the Gaza Zoo?
From American Free Press:
“It’s a fact: Israeli soldiers rampaged through the little zoo and shot as many innocent caged animals at point blank range as they could.
Although it should have been a worldwide scandal—on the front page of every daily paper and on every nightly broadcast on television and radio—it was not. While some defenders of Israel have attempted to suggest that the zoo and its animals were unintended ‘collateral damage’ of war-time, caught in military crossfire, the evidence demonstrates otherwise.
The soldiers of ‘America’s dearest ally’ went into the zoo itself and shot the poormonkeys in their cages. A mother monkey tried to hide with her baby in a clay pot, but the Israelis shot the pot to pieces and killed them.
Although the soldiers of ‘the apple of God’s eye’ fired on the two lions, those wily four-legged cats managed to escape from their lair and hid in one of the zoo offices.
And while the Israelis did not shoot the foxes, those little fellows turned on each other for food when the zookeepers were not able (due to the military action in Gaza) to get to them in time to feed them. The hysterical foxes mauled each other to death in a frenzied act of cannibalism.
A pregnant camel died after a missile cut it down, tearing a foot-long hole in the side of the fabled ‘horse of the desert.’ A pathetic picture of the camel, which clearly took some time to die—very much in agony—was released to the world, but few people saw the ugly image.
While Israel has asserted that its military is the ‘most moral’ armed force of any nation on the planet, the real nature of Israel was bared to the world although not to the extent that it should be—when the truth about the Israeli army’s shocking attack on the Gaza Zoo came to the fore.
The horrible story was told in the January 25 issue of Gulf News, published in Abu Dhabi, and has been repeated on websites on the Internet, but a check of the vaunted ‘news’ source of Google, the Internet giant (owned by two billionaires who are supporters of Israel) indicates that the story has never appeared in any newspaper or magazine catalogued by Google. But the ‘moral’ Israelis weren’t content with butchering the animals. They even defaced the walls of the main building and ripped out one of the toilets.
When the zookeeper was asked why the Israelis targeted the zoo, he said, ‘I don’t know. You have to go and ask the Israelis. This is a place where people come to enjoy themselves. It’s not a place of politics.’
Responding to claims by Israel that Palestinians were firing rockets from civilian areas, the zookeeper said: ‘There was not a single person in this zoo. Just the animals. We all fled before they came. What purpose does it serve to walk around shooting animals and destroying the place?’
During the past four years, the zoo was the most popular place in Gaza for the Christian and Muslim children of Gaza. There was nowhere else for people to go. The Israelis destroyed the zoo and God’s four-legged creatures therein.”
In light of Pat’s recent comments, I must reiterate a paragraph from the aforementioned AFP article:
“When the zookeeper was asked why the Israelis targeted the zoo, he said, ‘I don’t know. You have to go and ask the Israelis. This is a place where people come to enjoy themselves. It’s not a place of politics.'”
Let’s return to that same hypocritical Pat Robertson comment:
“…to think that somebody would be so vicious, so evil as to want to kill little children, and maim families who were there rejoicing in a sporting contest on a beautiful day in Boston, it just makes you sick at your stomach.”
Sporting contests? Hey, Pat? Did you not get the memo on what happened during Israel’s recent 8-day war on Gaza and Operation Cast Lead?
“During its most recent 8-day aggression against the Gaza Strip, Israel had a number of objectives which included the destruction of agricultural land, open fields, homes and infrastructure. Moreover, Israeli aircraft also targeted two important sports stadiums where various matches and championships are usually held.
This is not the first time that Israel has targeted sport in Gaza; on several occasions it has targeted boys and young men playing football “too close” to the border.
The first sports facility targeted was the Yarmouk Stadium in central Gaza, which was hit by F-16 missiles. A huge crater was created in the surrounding tarmac area, and adjacent law courts were damaged considerably.
The Palestine Stadium was also hit again; it was a target during the 2008/9 “Operation Cast Lead”. During the recent bombardment it was almost completely destroyed, as were the offices of the Ministry of Youth and Sport. FIFA has said that it will pay to rebuild the stadium.”
Documenting Muslim crimes against Jewish and other Gentile kids might fill a pamphlett, but documenting American and Zionist crimes against Muslim and Gentile children would fill volumes. I’m not even going to attempt going there. It’s a simple matter of arithmetic. See for yourselves.
The “joyous day” that Pat feels was stripped away from the American people has been replaced with an even more “joyous day” that came when their alleged villain was hauled away in the back of a police SUV.
Killin’ Mooslims is the new American sport, and from now on it’s open season.
If I may use your own words, Pat Robertson: “it just makes you sick at your stomach.”
Oh, yeah. If you can stomach it, here’s what the pasty-faced, doll- eyed whore has to say in his own words:

Who is really foaming at the mouth? Innocent children subjected to sarin gas by the “evil” Syrian ophthalmologist Bashar al-Assad, or the rabies infected, mad dog state of Israel?
Oh, it’s an Israeli spy, is it? You mean a spy whose agency motto is “By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War” ?
Syrian government forces have used chemical weapons – probably nerve gas – in their fight against rebels trying to force out President Bashar al-Assad, the Israeli military’s top intelligence analyst said on Tuesday.
The assessment met with skepticism from the United States, which has declared any use of chemical weapons in Syria’s two-year-old civil war a “red line” that could trigger intervention.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the latter “was not in a position to confirm” the briefing given by Itai Brun, a military intelligence brigadier-general, at a Tel Aviv conference.
“I don’t know what the facts are,” Kerry told reporters in Brussels.
Netanyahu’s office declined comment on Kerry and Brun’s remarks, made a day after U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said while visiting Israel that Washington’s spy agencies were still assessing whether such weapons had been employed.
“To the best of our understanding, there was use of lethal chemical weapons. Which chemical weapons? Probably sarin,” Brun told Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies in the most definitive Israeli statement on the issue.
Forces loyal to Assad were behind the attacks on “armed (rebels) on a number of occasions in the past few months, including the most reported incident on March 19″, Brun said.
The Syrian government and rebels last month accused each other of launching a chemical attack near the northern city of Aleppo.
Brun’s comments were likely to deepen international concerns over events in Syria. Kerry said separately on Tuesday that NATO needed to consider how practically prepared it was to “respond to protect its members from a Syrian threat, including any potential chemical weapons threat”.
FOAMING AT MOUTH
Speaking with a Powerpoint presentation showing what appeared to be a wounded or dead child, Brun said that foam coming out of victims’ mouths and contracted pupils and “other signs” indicated deadly gas had been used.
Another Israeli military officer with knowledge of Brun’s briefing said it drew on secret intelligence other than material available in the public domain.*
*Empasis mine. Once again, we are beholden to Israel’s “secret intelligence.” Hardly worth more than a chuckle.
Another article from the New York Times pushes the same spooky narrative but also reveals an important point:
None of the assertions — by Israel, Britain or France — have been made with physical proof of chemical weapons use. Experts say the most definitive way to prove the use of chemical weapons is to promptly gain access to the site to collect soil samples and examine suspected victims.
Lest we forget about Israel’s history of making wild assertions–Here’s just one random example, excerpted from a USATODAY article published on December 4, 2003, entitled General: Israelis exaggerated Iraq threat:
“In an article in Strategic Assessment, a publication of the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University, [Shlomo Brom, who was a senior Israeli military intelligence officer and is now a researcher with Israel’s top strategic think tank] said weapons of mass destruction probably would not be found in significant quantities in Iraq.
He said Israeli intelligence overplayed the potential danger before the war. Based on intelligence warnings that a U.S.-led invasion could trigger an Iraqi missile attack on Israel, possibly with chemical or biological weapons, the Israeli military ordered citizens to update their gas mask kits. As the war began, the military told Israelis to prepare for an imminent attack and carry the masks with them everywhere.
Israelis largely ignored the order, and even Cabinet ministers were seen without the kits. In the end, Iraq did not fire missiles at Israel.”
I thought I’d let one of Israel’s own speak rather than be accused of putting out biased opinions.
Anyway, since Israel is allowed to make their own unsubstantiated claims, why can’t we do the same thing?
Hey, at least we’ve got pictures and audio, Israel? Where’s yours?

Isn’t it interesting how things change…yet all remains the same.
Here’s a screenshot of what is believed to be Boston bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev’s last Facebook message to his father:
In case you can’t read it, here’s what it says:
“This will be the last message before the police will get me. I never done it, they set me up. Father please forgive me. I am sorry it has come to this.”
How eerily familiar this all sounds.
In case you didn’t hear it:
“I didn’t shoot anybody” and, “They’ve taken me in because of the fact that I lived in the Soviet Union. I’m just a patsy!”
