Ship false flags

North Korean ship false flag is discussed here.

False flags involving attacks on ships – prelude to war

It seems that it is too much of a coincidence that ship-related incidents have occurred before the USA entered into hostilities with other nations.

There was the USS Liberty false flag in which Israel planes and gun boats disguised as Arab attackers strafed, bombed and torpedoed the USS Liberty, an intelligence-gathering ship sailing off the Egyptian Coast.

Below is a pro-Israel lobbyist talking about setting up Iran so that the US could go to war with that nation.

Pro-Israel lobbyist suggests doing a false flag so that the US could go to war with Iran

VIDEO: Manufacture a false flag Dailymotion

Transcript:

“I pretty think that crisis initiation is really tough. And it’s very hard for me to see how the United States president can get us to a war with Iran. Which leads me to conclude that if in fact compromise is not company that the traditional way that America gets to war is what would be best for US’s interests.

Some people might think that Mr Roosevelt wanted to get us into WW2 as David mentioned. You may recall, we had to wait for Pearl Harbor.

Some people might think Mr Wilson wanted us to get into World War 1. You may recall we had to wait for the Lusitania episode.

Some people might think that Mr Johnson wanted to send troops to Vietnam, and you may recall we had to wait for the Gulf of Tonkin episode. We didn’t go to war with Spain until the USS Maine exploded.

And may I point out that Mr Lincoln did not feel he could call out the Federal Army until Fort Sumter was attacked which was why he ordered the commander of Fort Sumter to do exactly that thing in which the south Carolina incident said would cause an attack.

So if in fact the Iranians aren’t going to compromise, it would be best if somebody else started the war.

One can combine other means of pressure with sanctions. I mentioned that explosion on August 17th. We could step up the pressure. I mean, look people, Iranian submarines periodically go down. Some day one of them might not come up. Who would know why? We can do a variety of things if we wish to to increase the pressure.

I’m not advocating that, but I’m just suggesting that this is not an “either or” proposition. Just the sanctions has to succeed or other things. We are in the game of using covert means against the Iranians. We could get master of that.”

More ship false flags are discussed here.

USS Liberty

When: June 8, 1967, at the time of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War

Where: International waters off the Egyptian coast

How many killed/wounded: 34 killed, 174 wounded

USS Liberty: electronic intelligence-gathering ship

Mode of attack: Unmarked Israeli jets fired rockets and napalm at ship; Israeli aircraft blocked radio transmission; Israeli torpedo boats fired torpedoes and artillery at the ship, one torpedo struck the ship at the waterline level. Three lifeboats were launched but these were fired upon in contravention of international law. The attack lasted 3 days.

Motive: There are several theories as to the motive.

1. The attack was staged to conceal Israel’s pending seizure of Syria’s Golan Heights, which occurred the next day. If the ship had not been attacked, the ship’s listening devices would likely have overheard Israeli military communications planning this controversial operation.

2. The attack on the USS Liberty would be blamed on the Egyptians and the USA would be dragged into the war on Israel’s side.

Reasons to suspect the attack was deliberate

1. US flag was visible to attackers

Flag was flown on the ship and would have been visible to pilots flying the attacking Israeli jets. During the attack, a bigger flag was flown by the crew.

2. USS Liberty had been under Israeli surveillance

The USS Liberty was under surveillance by the Israelis for more than 9 hours before it was suddenly attacked without warning. Before the attack, Israeli jets flew over the USS Liberty hourly.

David Lewis of Lemington, Vt., was on the Liberty when it was attacked. In an interview, he said Israel had to know it was targeting an American ship. He said a U.S. flag was flying that day and Israel shot it full of holes. The sailors on the ship, he said, quickly hoisted another American flag, a much bigger one, to show Israel it was a U.S. vessel. FoxNews

3. Rescue aircraft turned back

Despite the blocking by Israeli aircraft, USS Liberty was able to make contact with the carrier Saratoga. 12 fighter jets and 4 tanker planes were sent to defend USS Liberty but they were turned back by Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, for reasons that are unknown.

Admiral Thomas Moorer, Chief of Naval Operations at the time: “A cover-up”

It was “one of the classic all-American cover-ups,” said Ret. Adm. Thomas Moorer, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who spent a year investigating the attack as part of an independent panel he formed with other former military officials.

Israel’s response

Israel claims that it was a case of mistaken identity. They thought it was an Egyptian ship. However the ship that they claimed they mistook the USS Liberty for (El Quseir) is one-quarter of the weight of the USS Liberty, is half-the length and is of a different shape.

This explanation is not accepted by many servicemen on the USS Liberty.

Government response: a cover-up

Even though the Johnson administration never accepted the Israeli explanation, it never ordered an in-depth investigation. Many administration officers stated it was a deliberate attack. There are claims that the evidence was concealed and altered to cover up the attack. The USS Liberty Veterans Association filed a Report of War Crimes document with the Secretary of the Army, providing evidence that the attack was a crime under international law. The US Government is supposed to investigate these allegations under international law and treaties, of which the U.S. is a signatory. The US Government has not even acknowledged the filing of the report, much less carried out the obligatory investigations.

Testimonies of Israeli pilot and Israeli major show the attack was deliberate

1. A senior Israeli pilot approached the Liberty survivors and told them about his role in the attack. In addition, he had extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. McCloskey. This pilot stated that he recognized the ship as an American one immediately and informed his headquarters about it. They told him to ignore the American flag and to continue the attack on the ship. He refused to do so. On returning to the base he was arrested.

2. An Israeli major (a dual Israeli-American citizen) told survivors of the USS Liberty attack that he had been in an Israeli war room at the time of the attack, and had heard the Israeli pilot’s report by radio that the ship was American. The attacking pilots, as well as everyone in the war room, knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major reported. However, the Israeli major later recanted his statement after he allegedly received threatening phone calls from Israel.

Other evidence that the attack was deliberate

The pilot’s protest that the ship was American had been picked up by radio monitors in the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon. U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dwight Porter confirmed that he had heard the pilot’s protest that the ship he was attacking was American on radio. The ambassador then told his story to two syndicated columnists Rowland Evans and Robert Novak, and he offered to be interviewed on this matter by the U.S. authorities. However, nobody in the U.S. government has taken him up on this offer.

Soviet ship was first to offer help

Ironically, the Soviets, an enemy of the USA at that time, who were patrolling nearby were the first to offer aid to the USS Liberty after it had been attacked by a supposed ally. The offer was refused and it was only after 16 hours from the time of the attack that American ships arrived at the ship. By that time, 34 people had died and 174 injured.

Crew told to keep hush

While the wounded were being evacuated, one of the first things the crew were told by officers of Naval Intelligence was not to talk about the attack to the press.

Israel broke ceasefire next day

The next day Israel launched a surprise attack on Syria, which broke the cease-fire agreement. It was in this attack that the Israelis seized control of the Golan Heights.

Israel quickly exonerated

Within 3 weeks, the Navy issued an exoneration of the Israelis. The Navy claimed everything had been a huge mistake. The Navy also said that the Israelis had pulled back as soon as they had realized their mistake. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara said the whole affair should be forgotten, stating that “These errors do occur.”

Cover-Up Alleged in Probe of USS Libertyhttp://www.whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/ussliberty.html
#tonkin
_________________________________

Gulf of Tonkin

When: There were two alleged attacks:

  1. August 2, 1964 (not disputed)
  2. August 4, 1964 (disputed)

Where: International waters off North Vietnam

Motive: To get America into the Vietnam War

Summary of the events: Two attacks were claimed to have happened. The first one did occur but it was Vietnamese vessels that suffered the most damage. The second attack that was said to have happened two days later was a fabricated attack.

  1. The August 2 attack by the North Vietnamese naval forces: The media covered up the fact that the U.S. was already involved in military action in the Vietnam War, and misled the public into thinking this attack was entirely unprovoked. The ship that was attacked, USS Maddox, was providing support to the South Vietnamese military against the North. At the time of the attack it was doing a patrol.
  2. The alleged August 4 attack by the North Vietnamese naval forces: This was a fabricated attack. The North Vietnamese denied they attacked the US warships Maddox and Turner Joy. No evidence from the archives or personal accounts refute these claims.

Result of the deception: Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution that served as the legal justification for President Johnson send U.S. conventional forces to Vietnam. (Special forces had already been deployed in the conflict.)

As a result of the US involvement in the war, over 50,000 U.S. military personnel died, and over 2 million Vietnamese civilians perished in this conflict, which lasted nine years (1964-1973).

Uncovering the deception:

The Gulf of Tonkin Deception in detail

tonkin-map.jpg

Gulf of Tonkin

United States was engaged in a secret war with North Vietnam

The United States had been working against North Vietnam secretly for the last 10 years, about which North Vietnam was fully aware.

The first alleged attack

On August 2, 1964, the destroyer USS Maddox, which was in the Gulf of Tonkin, intercepted a message from North Vietnam’s naval HQ. The message was an instruction for North Vietnamese naval forces to prepare for battle.

headeruss-maddox-sml (2).jpg

USS Maddox

Herrick, commander of the USS Maddox, informed his superiors. USS Maddox resumed its patrol of the North Vietnamese coast in international waters.

At 1400, Herrick was told by intelligence that North Vietnam would carry out a torpedo attack on the ‘enemy’.

USS Maddox was moving away from the coast when its radar spotted some fast-moving vessels closing in rapidly on the ship.

Around 1530, Herrick told the command of the Seventh Fleet and USS Ticonderoga about the approaching North Vietnamese vessels and that he intended to fire in self-defense if needed.

Some US jets immediately headed for Maddox’s location.

The vessels approaching Maddox were identified as 3 P-4 torpedo boats. At 1605, USS Maddox fired rounds from the ship’s guns as a warning, but they had no effect. As the three North Vietnamese boats kept approaching, the USS Maddox opened fire in earnest. In response, the North Vietnamese vessels launched torpedoes, and fired their guns, and then turned away. The torpedoes missed their target and only one round from the guns hit the destroyer, lodging harmlessly in the superstructure of the destroyer.

vietnam_tonkin_turner-joy_700-sml (2)

USS Turner Joy

The North Vietnamese boats were not so lucky. One boat was heavily damaged, and its commander was killed. Ticonderoga’s planes arrived and fired cannons and rockets on the three boats, leaving one boat on fire in the water. Despite the damage, the three North Vietnamese boats made it back to shore.

The second alleged attack two days later

In response to the attack, President Johnson ordered the destroyers USS Maddox and Turner Joy to go back to patrolling near the North Vietnamese coast on August 4. This was to demonstrate American military strength.

At this point, the stories of the North Vietnamese and the Americans diverge.

According to the Americans, radars on the two American warships picked up high-speed contacts to the northeast. The destroyers were ordered to move away from the fast-approaching contacts. When one contact was 7,000 yards from the ships, the captain of Turner Joy ordered the gunners to fire.

For the next two hours, the destroyers maneuvered to evade these attackers. US aircraft flew overhead the ships. Some time later, the two ships rejoined the main fleet.

Based on Herrick’s reports and information obtained from intelligence stations in the western Pacific, Johnson concluded that North Vietnam had once again attacked American warships in international waters.

And this was the narrative that was believed for many years.

Newspaper headline at the time

The story of the second attack unravels

However, it is now apparent that the second attack, on August 4, never occurred.

Hanoi has maintained all along that its navy did not attack the American ships on August 4.

Weaknesses of the official story from Washington:

• NSA misinterpreted the intercepted North Vietnamese radio transmissions that were said to show Hanoi’s intention to attack US ships

• eyewitness accounts of men on the American ships and planes were inconclusive

• Navy’s own operational reports revealed the information that had been gathered on the supposed attack were imprecise and contradictory

Johnson (1965): “For all I know, our navy was shooting at whales out there.”

No archival records or personal accounts have ever refuted North Vietnam’s contention that its forces did not attack US warships on Aug. 4.

President Johnson capitalizes on the deception to do a “revenge attack”

President Johnson, using the August 2 attack (attack is not disputed) and the August 4 attack (attack is disputed) as the justification, ordered the US navy to execute retaliatory attacks by air on August 5.

President Johnson vows retaliation against North Vietnam in a speech

67 aircraft from destroyers Ticonderoga and Constellation sank or damaged 33 North Vietnamese vessels and 90% of the fuel storage facility at Vinh. One American died from anti-aircraft fire.

This was the start of the war that would rage on for nine years (1964–1973).

USA formally enters the war

On August 7, the USA’s entry into the war was formalized with a resolution passed in Congress (with only two dissenting votes) that declared the US military would be used to frustrate Hanoi’s ambitions in Southeast Asia.

American advisers and special forces personnel had already been fighting and dying in the region for years, but now the conflict was moved from being kept secret into the open.

Pearl Harbor

Pearl_Harbor_looking_sml.jpg

Where: Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

When: December 7, 1941 at 7 a.m.

Attack: Japanese attacked the naval base at Pearl Harbor in a surprise attack.

Human losses: 2,403 Americans were killed; 1,178 were wounded

Materiel losses: 353 fighter planes, bombers and torpedo planes attacked the base.
These planes were launched from 6 aircraft carriers.
Eight battleships were damaged and 4 were sunk.
The Japanese also sank or damaged 3 cruisers, 3 destroyers, a training ship and 1 minelayer.
188 aircraft were destroyed.
(However, the fuel storage facility, torpedo storage facility, power station, shipyard, HQ building were not attacked.)

Result:
December 8: the day after Pearl Harbor, the US declared war on Japan.
December 11: Germany and Italy declared war on the US. (Japan and Germany and Italy had a mutual defense pact). The US declared war on Germany and Italy.

Nature of the conspiracy: 

President Franklin D Roosevelt (FDR):

1. Provoked the attack
2. Knew about the attack in advance
3. Failed to warn the commanders in Hawaii about it

Motive: The public and Congress were against US involvement in the war. The Pearl Harbor attack gave FDR an excuse to take the US into war.

How the conspiracy was done 

FDR:

1. He did not pass on the relevant intelligence to Hawaii headquarters that warned of an attack. Pearl Harbor commanders could not prepare for an attack.

2. He gave wrong information to people. i) He misled commanders into thinking the negotiations with the Japanese were still ongoing as late as November 27 (10 days before the attack) although by that time they had failed. This led the forces to not take the necessary steps to guard against the attack. ii) He gave false information about the location of the Japanese carrier fleet sent to Hawaii.

The Pearl Harbor Deception

(Robert B. Stinnet, a World War II veteran, has written a book called “Day of Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor” (2000). Stinnett obtained much of the information from documents that were released through the Freedom of Information Act. Much of the information below is obtained from this book.)

The following is adapted from the article: “New American: Pearl Harbor: Hawaii Was Surprised; FDR Was Not” by James Perloff.

FDR wanted a war with Japan – secret communications with Churchill

220px-Sir_Winston_S_Churchill-sml

Churchill

Roosevelt had wanted the US to join the war for a long time.

A close advisor was sent in Jan 1941 to tell Churchill that the US wanted to join the war on England’s side:

“The President is determined that we [the United States and England] shall win the war together. Make no mistake about it. He has sent me here to tell you that at all costs and by all means he will carry you through, no matter what happens to him — there is nothing he will not do so far as he has human power.”

FDR war plans were discovered

These secret communications between Churchill and FDR were found by Tyler Kent, a code clerk at the US embassy in London. He tried to smuggle them out to America to inform the American public about FDR’s intentions, but he was blocked from doing that when he was caught and kept in a British jail until the end of the war.

Roosevelt deliberately provoked the Axis powers to attack the USA

1. Provocations aimed at Germany:

  • FDR froze Germany’s assets
  • 50 destroyers were sent to Britain
  • He depth-charged German U-boats.

When Germany did not retaliate, FDR switched over to provoking Japan. The reason was that Japan had a mutual defense pact with Germany and Italy. If Japan entered into a war with the USA, Japan’s allies, Germany and Italy, would automatically be pulled into fighting against USA. So the USA would be at war in the Pacific theater and the European theater if the scheme was successful.

2. Provocations aimed at Japan

Actions that were thought to provoke Japan to attack the USA were outlined in a memorandum by Arthur McCollum, a commander in Naval Intelligence. All eight were put into practice as well as some additional ones.

The actions in the memo included:

i. Freezing Japanese assets
ii. Closing the Panama Canal to Japanese ships
iii. Halting vital exports to Japan, culminating in a total embargo against it
iv. Sending notes to the Japanese warning of what would happen if Japan did not change its policies in the Pacific.
v. Delivering an ultimatum to Japan on November 26 that Japan withdraw all troops from China and Indochina or be attacked

Diary notes reveal FDR wanted Japan to make the first move

1200px-Henry_Stimson,_Harris_&_Ewing_bw_photo_portrait,_1929-sml
Henry Stimson, Secretary of War

Henry Stimson who was Secretary of War under FDR, wrote in his diary:

“We face the delicate question of the diplomatic fencing to be done so as to be sure Japan is put into the wrong and makes the first bad move — overt move.”

This showed that the US was committed to entering the war, but wanted to do it in such a way so that it would seem it was forced into war.

And on November 25, the day before the ultimatum was sent, he wrote:

“The question was how we should maneuver them [the Japanese] into the position of firing the first shot….”

The Pacific Fleet was used as bait for the Japanese

220px-James_Richardson-sml.jpg

Admiral James O. Richardson, Commander in Chief

The Pacific Fleet was placed in Pearl Harbor as bait for the Japanese. Placing the Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor was firmly opposed by Admiral Richardson, the fleet’s commander. His reasons for opposing this were the same reasons the Pacific Fleet would make good bait for the Japanese.

Richardson’s arguments:

1. Pearl Harbor could be approached from any direction
2. Pearl Harbor could not be rigged with nets and baffles for protection against torpedo planes.
3. Training and supplying crews would be difficult because of its distant location from the mainland.
4. Fuel supplies on Pearl Harbor were insufficient and there were too few dry docks.
5. Morale problems would be high among servicemen as they would be far from their families.

However, FDR would not budge and he ended up relieving Richardson of his command and replacing him with Admiral Husband Kimmel.

This led Richardson to believe that FDR was determined to put the US to war:

“I came away with the impression that, despite his spoken word, the President was fully determined to put the United States into the war if Great Britain could hold out until he was reelected.”

Japanese code cracked: “Purple” and “Magic”

purple-decoded-sml.jpg

Japanese coding and decoding machine

The US had cracked Japan’s secret messaging code called “Purple”. After cracking the code, the Americans made a copies of the encoding and decoding machines. The deciphered messages were known as “Magic”.

Copies of deciphered messages were sent to FDR, the Secretaries of State, War and Navy, Army Chief of Staff, and Chief of Naval Operations.

But none of the coding/decoding machines were sent to Pearl Harbor even though a Japanese embassy was located in Pearl Harbor.

Any messages that were intercepted had to be sent first to Washington for decoding, which meant a delay in messages reaching Hawaii.

On October 9, a Tokyo-to-Honolulu dispatch was decoded that instructed the Japanese Consul General to divide Pearl Harbor into five specified areas and to report the exact locations of American ships. This message showed the Japanese was gathering information for an attack on Pearl Harbor.

But this information was never sent to Kimmel.

Additional intercepts gave warning of an attack

Additional intercepts were decoded by Washington, all within 24 hours of their original transmission:

• November 5th: Tokyo notified its ambassadors in Washington that November 25th was the deadline for an agreement with the U.S.

• November 11th: Japanese ambassadors in Washington were warned, “The situation is nearing a climax, and the time is getting short.”

• November 16th: More messages were received. The deadline was pushed up to November 29th. “The deadline absolutely cannot be changed,” the dispatch said. “After that, things are automatically going to happen.”

• November 29th (by then the U.S. ultimatum had now been received by the Japanese): The ambassadors were told a rupture in negotiations was “inevitable,” but that Japan’s leaders had to conceal their knowledge of this fact. They were instructed to avoid giving “the impression that negotiations are broken off.”

• November 30th: Tokyo ordered sent a message to its embassy in Berlin to inform the Germans that “the breaking out of war may come quicker than anyone dreams.”

• December 1st: The deadline was again moved forward. To hide this fact, in order”[T]o prevent the United States from becoming unduly suspicious” the press was advised that the negotiations were continuing. 

• December 1st-2nd: The Japanese embassies in non-Axis nations around the world were directed to dispose of their secret documents and all but one copy of their codes. (When war breaks out, the diplomatic offices of a hostile state lose their immunity and are normally overtaken. One copy of code was retained so that final instructions could be received, after which that last code copy would also be destroyed.)

The famous “East wind, rain” message

eastWindRainProduct_1024x1024-sml

Artwork by Mary Beth Percival for the cover of a book written about Pearl Harbor called “East Wind Rain”

‘A November 18th intercept indicated that if a break in U.S. relations were forthcoming, Tokyo would issue a special radio warning … The message, to be repeated three times during a weather report, was “Higashi no kaze ame,” meaning “East wind, rain.” “East wind” signified the United States; “rain” signified diplomatic split — in effect, war.

This prospective message was deemed so significant that U.S. radio monitors were constantly watching for it, and the Navy Department typed it up on special reminder cards. On December 4th, “Higashi no kaze ame” was indeed broadcast and picked up by Washington intelligence.’

FDR would have known war with Japan was imminent

FDR knew that Japan had in her history attacked other nations without warning, including the breaking off of diplomatic relations.

Secretary Stimson recorded FDR’s warning of an attack made at a conference

Secretary Stimson, describing FDR’s White House conference of November 25th, noted:

“The President said the Japanese were notorious for making an attack without warning and stated that we might be attacked, say next Monday, for example.”

Naval messages kept secret from Pearl Harbor commanders

Washington had access to the Japanese naval messages as well as diplomatic messages that had been decoded. These messages were kept so confidential that their existence was hidden from the ten Pearl Harbor investigations that were done.

Many decoded messages not released under the FOIA

Most of author Stinnett’s requests for documents relating to these intercepted naval messages have been denied, even under the Freedom of Information Act.

This is probably because the information in these naval messages is damaging to the Roosevelt administration. They may show he had foreknowledge of the attack but did not act on it.

Many decoded messages speaking of coming attack intercepted

Naval intelligence intercepted and translated numerous dispatches, some clearly revealing that Pearl Harbor had been targeted. The most significant was the following, sent by Admiral Yamamoto to the Japanese First Air Fleet on November 26, 1941 (11 days before the attack):

“The task force, keeping its movement strictly secret and maintaining close guard against submarines and aircraft, shall advance into Hawaiian waters, and upon the very opening of hostilities shall attack the main force of the United States fleet and deal it a mortal blow. The first air raid is planned for the dawn of x-day. Exact date to be given by later order.”

Because of the secrecy surrounding the Japanese naval dispatches, it is not known whether this message was seen by McCollum (director of the Office of Naval Intelligence’s Far East Asia section and responsible for providing messages of Japanese intercepts to FDR) or FDR.

Other warnings

January 27th, 1941: The US ambassador to Japan, Joseph Grew, warned Washington that he had heard from a Peruvian Minister that Pearl Harbor could be the target of a surprise attack at the outbreak of hostilities

November 3rd, 1941: Grew notified Secretary of State Cordell Hull: “War with the United States may come with dramatic and dangerous suddenness.”

November 17th, 1941: Grew sent another warning of a Japanese attack

Early in 1941: Congressman Martin Dies warned the Secretary of State that he had come into possession of a map that showed that the Japanese had attack plans for Pearl Harbor. In response Hull told Dies that he had shown the map to FDR and he asked Dies to keep this map a secret.

More evidence of foreknowledge

Yugoslavia secret agent

A Yugoslavian secret agent who worked for both Germany and Britain (his true allegiance was to the Allies) revealed he had been ordered to make a detailed study of Pearl Harbor. He guessed this was for a surprise attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor. He warned J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI. Hoover revealed later that he passed this warning onto FDR who told him to keep the information confidential.

Korean underground warning

A Korean member of the Sino-People’s League, Kilsoo Haan, warned the State Department that the Korean underground had received word that the Japanese were planning to assault Hawaii before Christmas. After getting nowhere with the State Department, Haan told Iowa Senator Guy Gillette about this warning. Gillette briefed the president, who said he would look into it.

Dutch Army in Java

The Dutch Army stationed in Java, Indonesia, decoded a message from Tokyo to the Japanese embassy in Bangkok about future attacks on four sites including Hawaii. This message was passed onto Washington.

Dutch naval attache

Dutch naval attache in Washington was shown the progress of Japanese ships toward Hawaii on December 2 and 6. He assumed that everyone in Honolulu knew an attack was coming.

Secretary of State Cordell Hull

cordell hull

Secretary of State Cordell Hull

Secretary of State Cordell Hull, worried that the Japanese were about to attack Pearl Harbor and FDR was allowing it to happen, passed on copies of the Japanese message intercepts concerning Pearl Harbor to a newspaper journalist Joseph Leib, hoping he would leak them to the media. Leib was only able to get only one newspaper to carry it.

(For additional evidences, see “Infamy: Pearl Harbor and Its Aftermath” by John Toland, and “Day of Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor” by Robert Stinnett.)

Only one of the numerous warnings reached Kimmel, commander of Pearl Harbor

kimmel-3-sml

Admiral Husband Edward Kimmel, Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Fleet at the time of Pearl Harbor

There was so many warnings that Chief of Staff General George Marshall at a private press conference in November confidently predicted that a Japanese-American war would break out during the “first ten days of December.”

None of this intelligence, except one rumor, was passed onto commanders in Hawaii.

Ambassador to Japan Grew’s January warning reached Kimmel on February 1st. However, he was told by Lieutenant Commander McCollum to ignore the rumor.

Sitting Ducks

Other actions that Washington took to ensure the Japanese would attack Pearl Harbor unimpeded:

1) Creating a traffic-free path for Japanese ships to sail to Pearl Harbor: The US Navy issued an order forbidding US and Allied ships to travel via the North Pacific.

2) Blocking Kimmel and Short from doing protecting the fleet in Pearl Harbor: The commanders were given insufficient planes to do a surveillance around Pearl Harbor despite requests for more planes. They were told to search the wrong area.

Rear Admiral Edward T. Layton, who served at Pearl Harbor, summed it up in his book “And I Was There”:

“There was never any hint in any intelligence received by the local command of any Japanese threat to Hawaii. Our air defenses were stripped on orders from the army chief himself.”

Washington ordered Kimmel to return the fleet’s ships back to dock

Kimmel put 46 war ships in the fleet to sea as a precaution since it is a rule of the Navy that when international relations are critical, ships were put to sea. Kimmel also did a mock air raid.

But White House told him to send the ships back.

Kimmel’s efforts to guard the fleet with a task force of guard ships were thwarted

Kimmel then tried to set up a 25-ship task force to guard the fleet from enemy attack, but he was thwarted ‘when on November 26th, Admiral Stark, Washington’s Chief of Naval Operations, ordered carriers be sent to transport fighter planes elsewhere.

Washington covered their backs by sending vague warnings

Washington sent an ambiguous “war warning” to Kimmel, and a similar one to Short, on November 27th. This has been used for years by Washington apologists to accuse the Pearl Harbor commanders of being negligent.

The warnings were misleading. In one, they named the wrong targets of attack: the Philippines, Thailand, Kra Peninsula or Borneo. They also misled about the nature of the attacks: warnings about sabotage and amphibious (submarine) attacks were sent.

The two commanders in Hawaii took actions to protect against these threats and reported them to Washington. These actions actually made the fleet vulnerable to air attack but the commanders had not been warned about air attacks.

Japan intended to sever relations with the US on December 7th

Japan sent a dispatch to its ambassadors in Washington, telling them to inform Washington Japan was severing relations with Washington. This message was tantamount to declaring war on America. This message was intercepted. 13 parts out of this 14-part message were decrypted – that is, everything except for the severing relations part. However, the 13 parts that had been decrypted were so fiery that it was obvious Japan intended to end relations with the United States and possibly declare war.

‘Later that day, when Lieutenant Lester Schulz delivered to President Roosevelt his copy of the intercept, Schulz heard FDR say to his advisor, Harry Hopkins, “This means war.”‘

Meeting held at the White House

FDR convened a high-level meeting at the White House that evening. That same evening, the Navy Department received a request from Stimson for a list of the whereabouts of all the ships in the Pacific.

Morning of December 7th, day of the attack

On the morning of December 7th, the final portion of Japan’s lengthy message to the Japanese ambassadors was decoded. There were two directives in the message:

1) The statement about severing the relations with America was to be delivered by them at 1 p.m. (1 p.m. Washington time was 7 a.m. in Hawaii; Pearl Harbor was attacked just before 8 a.m.).

2) The last copy of the code (previous copies had already been destroyed earlier on instruction), and the coding/decoding machine that went with it, had to be destroyed.

From this message it could be assumed that Japan planned to strike Pearl Harbor at dawn of December 7th (there was a time difference of 6 hours between Washington and Honolulu).

Admiral Stark did not notify Pearl Harbor of coming attacks

Admiral Stark, Chief of Naval Operations, arrived at his office at 9:25 a.m (3:25 a.m. in Honolulu). He was shown the message, but he did not take action to notify Kimmel, probably because he had been instructed by Roosevelt not to warn Hawaii:

‘One junior officer pointed out the possibility of an attack on Hawaii; another urged that Kimmel be notified. But Stark refused; he did nothing all morning. Years later, he told the press that his conscience was clear concerning Pearl Harbor because all his actions had been dictated by a “higher authority.” As Chief of Naval Operations, Stark had only one higher authority: Roosevelt.’

Washington delayed sending the warning to Hawaii 

  • Secretary of War was out riding horses and couldn’t be reached.
  • Marshall dawdled on his trip back to his office: a 10-minute drive took 75 minutes
  • Instead of making a phone call to Pearl Harbor, a written dispatch was sent

As a result of all of these delays, General Short,  received it 6 hours after the Japanese attack, and Admiral Kimmel got it 8 hours after the attack.

“In the War Department, where the 14-part statement had also been decoded, Colonel Rufus Bratton, head of the Army’s Far Eastern section, discerned the message’s significance. But the chief of intelligence told him nothing could be done until Marshall arrived. Bratton tried reaching Marshall at home, but was repeatedly told the general was out horseback riding. The horseback ride turned out to be a long one. When Bratton finally reached Marshall by phone and told him of the emergency, Marshall said he would come to the War Department. Marshall took 75 minutes to make the 10-minute drive. He didn’t come to his office until 11:25 a.m. — an extremely late hour with the nation on the brink of war. He perused the Japanese message and was shown the delivery time. Every officer in Marshall’s office agreed these indicated an attack in the Pacific at about 1 p.m. EST. The general finally agreed that Hawaii should be alerted, but time was running out.

FDR pretended he had tried to forestall the attack

FDR sent a last-minute plea for peace to Emperor Hirohito that was sent on the evening of December 6th, but it was too late to reach the emperor before December 8th. The message had been written a week before.

Corrupt commission on Pearl Harbor blamed Pearl Harbor commanders for failures

After the Pearl Harbor attack, a commission headed by personal cronies of Roosevelt and Marshall was set up. The commission absolved Washington of blame and accused Kimmel and Short of “dereliction of duty”.

A U-boat torpedo hit ocean liner Lusitania near Britain and some 1200 people, including 128 Americans, on board lost their lives. Subsequent investigations revealed that the major explosions were inside the Lusitania, as it was secretly transporting 6 million pounds of artillery shells and rifle ammunition, as well as other explosives on behalf of Morgan banking corporation to help their clients, the Britain and the France. It was against US laws to transport war materials and passengers in the same ship. 911 Review

The Lusitania

german-notice-2

Notice!

Travellers intending to embark on the Atlantic voyage are reminded that a state of war exists between Germany and her allies and Great Britain and her allies; that the zone of war includes the water adjacent to the British Isles; that, in accordance with formal notice given by the Imperial German Government, vessels flying the flag of Great Britain, or any of her allies, are liable to destruction in those waters and that travellers sailing in the war zone on ships of Great Britain or her allies do so at their own risk.

Imperial German Embassy, Washington, D.C., April 22, 1913

The Germans gave a warning to Americans not to sail on the Lusitania as there was a chance they would attack it. So they asked for this notice to be printed in 50 newspapers. But the Government did not pass on the warning to the general public except for allowing this notice to be printed in only one regional newspaper. 

On April 22, [the Germans] ordered a conspicuous warning placed in fifty newspapers near the Cunard sailing notices, alerting potential passengers to the danger. This would have given the public a week’s notice. However, a State Department officer ordered the warning’s publication suppressed. On April 26, George Viereck, representing the Germans, obtained an audience with Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan. Bryan immediately cleared the notice for publication, and also urged President Wilson to warn Americans. Wilson, however, always on the bankers’ puppet strings, declined to do so.  False Flag at Sea: The Lusitania …

President Wilson by the time he was in office was in the clutches of the bankers; here he is with House, one of his “minders”.

Churchill wanted the US to enter the war and was prepared to use the lives of American civilians to achieve that; Churchill as head of the Admiralty was an instrumental figure in the Lusitania deception.

Gulf of Tonkin

Faulty intel at the Gulf of Tonkin would set the US into war

In the early morning hours of Aug. 2, 1964, naval intelligence personnel manning communications interception equipment on board destroyer USS Maddox, then steaming on a peacetime mission in the Gulf of Tonkin, straightened in their chairs as they listened to a transmission from North Vietnam’s naval headquarters. The communication instructed naval forces to prepare for battle.

Capt. John J. Herrick, the officer in tactical command for the Maddox mission, sent a top-priority “flash” precedence message to his superiors stating: “contemplate serious reaction my movements [off North Vietnam] in near future. Received info indicating possible hostile action.”

Thus began an incident that some observers have considered the spark that ignited the long, contentious and ultimately unsuccessful Vietnam War that cost the lives of 58,000 Americans and changed the course of U.S. history.

Maddox headed out to sea until daybreak Aug. 2, but then resumed her north-south patrol of the coast in international waters. Shortly after noon, the ship’s radar and lookouts identified various fast attack craft gathering around a small nearby island.

About 1400 (H time, or Saigon time), Herrick learned from intelligence that these forces had been ordered to carry out a torpedo attack on the “enemy.” Since the United States had been working against North Vietnam with Hanoi’s arch enemy South Vietnam for the last 10 years, Herrick had no doubt whom the “enemy” might be. As the destroyer speeded up to 27 knots and steered east and then southeast to clear the area, radar locked onto several fast-moving vessels closing on her.

At 1530 Maddox sounded General Quarters, and soon afterward Herrick alerted Commander Seventh Fleet and aircraft carrier USS Ticonderoga that his ship was “being approached by high speed craft with apparent intention of torpedo attack.” He added, “intend to open fire if necessary [in] self defense.” A quartet of F-8E Crusader jets, armed with missiles, rockets and cannons, immediately headed for Maddox’s location 280 miles to the northwest and 25 miles from North Vietnam.

Meanwhile, Maddox had positively identified the contacts as three Soviet-built P-4 torpedo boats traveling at 50-knot speeds and closing the ship on an intersecting course. At 1605 the destroyer fired three rounds from one of her 5-inch/38-caliber guns as a warning; they had no effect. The three North Vietnamese boats (T-333, T-336, and T-339) of Torpedo Squadron 135 continued to close. Finally, at 1608 Maddox opened fire in earnest with her 5-inch and 3-inch guns. The attacking vessels turned to port, launched torpedoes, fired their 14.5mm deck guns and turned away astern of the destroyer. The North Vietnamese torpedoes missed their target and only one 14.5mm round hit the destroyer, where it lodged harmlessly in the superstructure.

The attackers did not fare as well.

Maddox’s gunfire heavily damaged T-339, killing its commander. Shortly afterward, Ticonderoga’s Crusaders arrived overhead and unloaded their 5-inch Zuni rockets and 20mm cannons on the three boats, leaving one dead in the water and burning. Despite damage from the U.S. fire, the North Vietnamese boats later managed to make it back to shore. In the meantime, Maddox joined Ticonderoga at the mouth of the Gulf of Tonkin.

Surprised by the North Vietnamese action, President Lyndon B. Johnson suggested that an overly aggressive local naval commander might have ordered the attack. Neither Johnson nor most of his military and civilian advisers believed North Vietnamese leaders would openly challenge America’s military might. To demonstrate that the United States would not back down in such a confrontation, Washington ordered Maddox, now accompanied by destroyer USS Turner Joy, to resume the patrol along the North Vietnamese coast on Aug. 4.

Beginning at 2041 on the dark, cloudy night, radars on the ships picked up high-speed contacts to the northeast. Herrick directed the destroyers away from what he thought were fast-approaching hostile vessels. When one contact was tracked as close as 7,000 yards to the ships, the captain ordered Turner Joy to open fire. For the next two hours, the destroyers, with aircraft overhead, maneuvered to evade their supposed attackers. At the end of the confusing episode, the two ships rejoined the fleet.

Buttressed by Herrick’s reports and by information from intelligence stations in the western Pacific, Johnson and his advisers concluded that North Vietnamese naval forces had once again attacked American warships in international waters. The wealth of information obtained from national intelligence sources and from the Navy then and for years afterward convinced many objective observers that North Vietnam had brazenly attacked U.S. ships on the open sea.

It is now clear, however, that an attack never occurred.

The National Security Agency misinterpreted intercepted North Vietnamese radio transmissions suggesting an attack; eyewitness accounts by some of the men on the destroyers and in the planes proved inconclusive; and the Navy’s operational reports revealed some of the information gathered to be imprecise or contradictory. Moreover, the Tonkin Gulf Incident happened 50 years ago and neither archival records nor personal accounts have surfaced in Vietnam or the United States to refute Hanoi’s unchanged contention that its navy did not attack on Aug. 4.

There was no doubt, however, that North Vietnamese torpedo boats had attacked Maddox on Aug. 2. Knowing this, and convinced that a similar action had occurred two days later, Johnson ordered U.S naval forces to execute retaliatory air strikes on Aug. 5. On that date, 67 combat aircraft from Ticonderoga and Constellation sank or damaged 33 North Vietnamese naval vessels and destroyed 90 percent of the fuel storage facility at Vinh. Anti-aircraft fire brought down the plane piloted by Lt. Richard C. Sather, the first American aviator to die in the conflict against North Vietnam. The Pierce Arrow strike was the first major episode of an air campaign that would continue off and on for nine more years.

Of even greater significance, the events off North Vietnam in early August 1964 prompted many Americans to call for retribution against Hanoi and to rally around the Johnson administration. On Aug. 7, Congress passed, with only two dissenting votes, the Tonkin Gulf Resolution that essentially authorized Johnson to use the U.S. Armed Forces as he saw fit to frustrate Hanoi’s ambitions in Southeast Asia. American advisers and special forces personnel had been fighting and dying in the region for years, but the Tonkin Gulf Incident proved to be a milestone in the long struggle.

The United States was now embarked on major combat operations that would last until the end of the war in January 1973.

Israel’s use of WMD

Israel’s known use of chemical and biological weapons: typhoid, cholera and dysentery

cbff4_BigWMDsymbols-chemical-sml  biowarfare-symbol-tiny

Parts of the account below are adapted from Palestine Land Society: Traces of Poison: Israel’s Dark History Revealed (by Salman Abu Sitta, Ahram Weekly, Cairo, February 27-March 5, 2003)

Despite Israel’s frequent warnings about Syria and Iran’s alleged but unproven WMD to the international community, it is Israel that has the largest collection of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.

Israel has even used these weapons. Below is shown Israel’s biowarfare on the residents and soldiers of Palestine, Syria and Egypt.

The biowarfare started even before Israel became a nation.

Zionists contaminate the water supply of the city of Acre

biowarfare-symbol-tiny

acre-map-larger-annot.jpg

Acre Aqueduct that fed the city of Acre with water was contaminated with typhoid organisms that were injected by Zionists on May, 1948. (Modified map shown here) 

Zionists targeted Acre by first showering it with mortar bombs. Then they poisoned the city’s water supply by injecting typhoid-causing microorganisms into the aqueduct that supplied the city its drinking water. This point of injection was intermediate between the source, located at a village called El Kabiri, some 10 km away to the north, and Acre, the target city. Between these points, the aqueduct passed through Zionist settlements, giving Zionists plenty of chances to access the aqueduct.

typhoid-fever-7-728-sml typhoidfever-narrow

This information came to light thanks to the files of the Red Cross; these files became available in the late 1990s. The Red Cross reports describe a typhoid epidemic which hit the population of Acre in 1948.

The report:

  • There were 70 Palestinian sufferers of the typhoid epidemic in Acre
  • The typhoid infection came from the water supply
  • Red Cross advised that a substitute water supply be built to avoid the water from the aqueduct because the aqueduct’s water was contaminated with typhoid organisms
  • It was advised that chlorine be applied to drinking water before consumption to combat the contamination
  • Immunization against typhoid of the general population would be started to combat the epidemic
  • Movement of people from this region to other areas was controlled to prevent the spread of typhoid to other areas
  • Non-Palestinian victims of typhoid infection included 55 British soldiers (125 sufferers altogether).
  • This was the first time such an epidemic occurred in Palestine’s history according to the British
  • The British denied the outbreak was due to unhygienic conditions, as the Israelis claimed it was

Typhoid fever is an acute illness associated with fever caused by the Salmonella typhi bacteria. It can also be caused by Salmonella paratyphi, a related bacterium that usually causes a less severe illness. The bacteria are deposited in water or food by a human carrier and are then spread to other people in the area.  Typhoid Fever Causes, Symptoms, Treatment and Vaccine – WebMD

typhoid-fever-2-728-sml

– Zionists intensified their bombing of Palestinian areas after the typhoid epidemic struck and while the Palestinian residents of Acre were in the middle of a typhoid epidemic.
– Some of the Palestinians who were caught by soldiers were forced to drink cyanide-laced drinks.
– Zionists looted homes of Palestinians.
– Zionists murdered about 100 Arab civilians in Acre, by cyanide, shooting etc.
– Rapes of Palestinian women were committed by Zionists during this period. Rapes were easier to carry out because many men had been detained by the Israelis or were away resisting the Zionists. (The rapes were probably done to terrorize the residents and make them leave the area.)
– Men were arbitrarily sent to concentration camps even though they weren’t soldiers. This left many homes in Acre unguarded and many people defenseless against the violence of Zionist attackers.
– Water and electricity were cut off to Acre.

typhoid-4-638-border-smalltyphoid-fever-eteric-fever-12-638-sml.jpg

The Palestinian city ended up collapsing, all the inhabitants left, and the city was occupied by Zionists.

Conclusion: The typhoid infection was done to destabilize the region, creating chaotic conditions, and weakening the resistance to Zionists when they started their campaign of bombing, harassment, arbitrary detention, murder, rape, sabotage and other kinds of terror against the Palestinian residents of Acre.

It can be deduced that the typhoid contamination of the Acre residents’ water supply was part of an overall program of the Zionists to de-populate Palestinian areas of Palestinian residents. Later, Zionists would move into the areas they had de-populated.

Campaign to spread typhoid and dysentery to Gaza residents and soldiers

biowarfare-symbol-tiny

Zionists struck again with more biowarfare two weeks after the Palestinian city of Acre fell–this time in Gaza.

Dysentery is an intestinal inflammation, especially in the colon, that can lead to severe diarrhea with mucus or blood in the feces. Medical News Today

Sufferers of dystentery experience bloody diarrhea. 

How the biowarfare was discovered and prevented

Jewish saboteurs were caught redhanded with water bottles containing contaminated water near the water supply that delivered water to the army and civilians in that area. On later examination, the bottles of water were found to contain typhoid and dysentery-causing microbes. The people caught were part of a team of twenty whose mission it was to contaminate the water supply of Gaza in order to cause an outbreak of disease in the soldiers in the army stationed nearby and the residents of Gaza.

Causes-typhoid-dirty-glass-sml.jpg

Report on the incident to the U.N. 

A Palestinian committee submitted a report to the United Nations in which they outlined this attack and the suspicion that Jews were waging a genocidal war against the Arabs, using germ warfare. In support of this claim, the report details another biowarfare incident: the cholera attack on Egyptian and Syrian people in 1947/1948.

Cholera attacks on Egyptians and Syrians of 1947/48

biowarfare-symbol-tiny

Cholera:  an infectious and often fatal bacterial disease of the small intestine, typically contracted from infected water supplies and causing severe vomiting and diarrhea.

Background of the contamination incident

In 1947, a UN delegation was in Palestine and other Arab nations to propose partitioning Palestine to give to some of the Palestinians’ land to the Jews. Out of the Arab nations, Egypt and Syria were the strongest resisters of this partitioning. Egypt and Syria had even prepared a military response to the proposed partitioning by training army resistance units.

Dr. W. Seth Carus, a researcher at the Center for Counterproliferation Research at the National Defense University based in Washington, DC, writes in a report “Bioterrorism and Biocrimes: The Illicit Use of Biological Agents since 1900” (February 2001) about ‘Case 1947-01: “Zionist” Terrorists 1947-1948‘. In this case report:

High death toll from cholera in Egypt

• 10,262 people died of cholera in Egypt (last cases were in January 1948)

• A smaller outbreak occurred in Syria, near the border with Palestine: 18 out of 44 people with cholera died. In response, the Syrian army cordoned off the area of the epidemic to limit the spread of the infection. Several Zionist agents were arrested for introducing the cholera infection; it was reported the army was their target.

• The allegation that the Zionists had a campaign to infect residents of Egypt and Syria with cholera was supported by the testimony of Rachel Katzman, the sister of one of the perpetrators who was caught (Horeen). Horeen’s sister said she met her brother’s commander, and he confirmed to her that the Zionists had contaminated wells used by Gaza residents with cholera organisms.

• Uri Milstein, a military historian and a far-right Zionist, confirms the deliberate contamination of the water supply to Acre residents with typhoid organisms in an email to a peace activist. In the email, he writes that the operation was called “Shlach Lachmecha” (“Donate your bread”). “Donate your bread” is a Hebrew saying that you should be generous because one day, you will profit from it.

Ben Gurion – Father of Israel’s chemical and biowarfare programs

Ben-Gurion-sml.jpg

Ben Gurion, PM of Israel, wrote in 1948 in a letter to a Jewish agent in Europe to recruit East European Jewish scientists, so that Zionists could:

“either increase [our] capacity to kill masses or to cure masses; both are important”.

Israel’s doctrine of ethnic cleansing

Ben Gurion’s doctrine towards the Palestinians was to cleanse them ethnically through:

1) Open massacres: shooting and similar attacks that would decrease their population

2) Expulsion: driving the Palestinians to leave their homes through harassment campaigns

3) Extermination by covert means: this would include the use of biowarfare

Ben Gurion and his genocidal plans for Palestinians have been researched by Avner Cohen, a senior fellow at the Center for International and Security Studies, and a researcher at the Program on Security and Disarmaments at the University of Maryland.

In a paper on Israel’s chemical and biological weapons, which was published in the Non-Proliferation Review (2001), Cohen describes the following:

• Gurion gathered experts in microbiology:
Ernst David Bergmann, Avraham Marcus (Marek) Klingberg (from the Red Army) and the brothers Aharon and Ephraim Katachalsky (Katzir) were recruited. They formed the Science Corps during the British Mandate period of the Middle East, before Israel was established. These individuals were probably responsible for the plots to create the epidemics described above.

• A new unit of biological research was formed called HEMED in 1948, of which Katachalsky was appointed the head: A research institute was built in Rehovot called “Weizmann Institute”. Within HEMED was a subunit called HEMED BEIT. This unit was devoted to the development of biological weapons. It operated as a branch of the Israeli Army. Alexander Keynan, a microbiologist from the medical school at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, was the head of this unit.

Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR)

cbff4_BigWMDsymbols-chemical-smlbiowarfare-symbol-tinycbff4_BigWMDsymbols-radiol-sml2

Israel Institute for Biological Research is established

Palestinian Al-Taji family’s mansion near Nes Ziona; it was built in a citrus grove.

When the villages in Al-Nakba became depopulated of their Palestinian inhabitants by 1948, Jewish immigrants moved into the vacant houses. One large mansion, belonging to the Al Taji family, situated within an orange grove, west of Nes Ziona, became the home of the Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR). This institution was the destination for the cargo of chemicals, including chemicals to make sarin gas, of the Israeli plane that crashed in Schiphol in 1992. The institute’s building was expanded, with the building of more structures, and security installations were erected around the building.

Two fronts: a clean one and a dirty one

The Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR) has two fronts: a clean one and a dirty one. The clean one produces “clean” research papers, and the dirty one conducts research on biological weapons within the IIBR.  This research center is controlled by Israel’s Ministry of Defense.

Weapons with a non-conventional capability

In 1955, Gurion rushed through a project to develop weapons that had a “non-conventional capability”. He wanted to have these “non-conventional weapons” ready for use by the time the Suez Tripartite Aggression (Suez Crisis) was to take place, in 1956. This incident was the invasion of Egypt by the three nations of Israel, UK and France, an action that was initiated over a dispute about rights to use the Suez Canal, the only direct waterway between the Red Sea and Mediterranean. The aim of this attack was to regain the West’s control of the Suez Canal and remove President Nasser from power.

If the campaign to regain rights to use the canal failed, Gurion wanted the option of bombing Egypt, using bioweapons as well as conventional weapons.

On top of this, in 1956, Gurion signed an agreement with France to build nuclear weapons. Therefore, 1956 can be said to be the start date of Israel’s nuclear program.

Where is the Israel Institute of Biological Research?

In the 1930s, the wealthy Palestinian family of Al-Taji Al-Farouki purchased land near Nes Ziona and built a citrus grove. The citrus farm produced a bountiful crop: hundreds of thousands of boxes of Jaffa oranges were exported to Europe.

With the money from the citrus business, Shukri Al-Taji built a mansion on top of a hill. He also built a mosque nearby. In addition, his cousin built a residential compound nearby that consisted of several buildings.

altaji-mansion-iibr-border

The arches at the entrance of Al Taji mansion, now the home of the Israel Institute for Biological Research

Shukri Al-Taji’s home became the site of the IIBR. The institute’s main entrance is the marbled entrance of Shukri’s mansion. Other buildings of the Al-Taji family were expropriated by the Israelis: the mosque became a synagogue, and the cousin’s house became a mental hospital. Ten years later, Shukri died heartbroken in Jordan, where he migrated to after his house had been taken over by the Israelis.

Chasing the culprits of germ warfare

Sara Leibovitz-Dar, an investigative journalist whose parents came from Lithuania, has investigated the Gaza and Acre poisonings and the “shooting down” of a Libyan civil airplane over Lockerbie.

Uri Milstein, a rightwing Israeli military historian, identified the names of the officers involved in the biological warfare against the Palestinians, and this information was included in Leibovitz-Dar’s report, which was published in August, 1993, under the title “Microbes in State Service“.

Naeim Giladi, an Iraqi Jew, was lured to Israel by Mossad agents in the early 1950s. While working in Israel, he experienced the caste system of Israel, where Mizrahim (Jews from Arab countries) were treated as second class citizens by Ashkenazis.

Naeim_Giladi

He also found out about the bacteriological warfare against the Arabs.

“Jewish forces would empty Arab villages of their population often by threats, sometimes by gunning down a half-dozen young men so that the Arabs could not return. The Israelis put typhus [sic] and dysentery bacteria in the water wells to prevent the refugees from returning”. [The Link, Vol. 31 Issue 2, April-May 1998].

A Mossad agent, Victor Ostrovsky, claims that vivisection experiments involving the testing of lethal chemical and biowarfare agents were done on Arab prisoners, who had been brought to the IIBR compound for this purpose.

A plane crash spilling the secrets of Israel’s chemical and biological weapons programs

cbff4_BigWMDsymbols-chemical-smlcbff4_BigWMDsymbols-radiol-sml2.jpg

In 1992, El Al Flight 1862 crashed into a high-rise apartment in Bijlmer (Bijlmermeer) shortly after leaving Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. It revealed a cargo of chemicals used in chemical weapons as well as a suspected cargo of radiological substances used to make nuclear weapons.

el al planeBijlmermeer-Amsterdam_1992-sml

• It was carrying 114 tons of freight in total

• 47 people were killed it is estimated (more may have been killed as there were many undocumented migrants living in the apartment complex.

• 3,000 Dutch residents were affected by exposure to hazardous cargo on the plane, including chemicals and radioactive substances

• Symptoms and illnesses included rashes, difficulty breathing, nervous disorders and cancer.

• Initially, the Dutch and Israeli governments lied about the cargo, saying it comprised just perfume and flowers.

A science editor at a Dutch daily newspaper, Karel Knip, pursued the facts for several years. Much of the information about the plane crash and cargo has become available due to his efforts.

Seven years after the plane crash, Knip published a report:

• The plane carried 50 gallons of dimethyl methylphosphonate (DMMP), the main chemical used to make sarin (a substance that is 20 times more lethal than cyanide). It is usually delivered in aerosolized form.

• The shipment of chemicals on El Al came from Solkatronic Chemicals of Morrisville, Pennsylvania. Solkatronic Chemicals was a subsidiary of Solvay, a Belgian company, a few of whose directors and a major shareholder had links to child abuse networks. Solvay is itself a member of the Belgian branch of “Les Holdings”, a supranational financial entity that serves the same people who run child abuse networks that cater to the elite of Europe.

• The chemicals’ destination was Israel Institute for Biological Research in Nes Ziona.

• The shipment had an export license from the US Department of Commerce

• The shipment of such chemicals is contrary to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). The U.S. is a party to this treaty. Israel has signed but not ratified this treaty.

• Knip was able to identify 140 Israeli scientists involved in biological weapons (BW) research. This is probably a minimum number; many more scientists are believed to be doing research there.

1995 Tokyo Subway sarin gas attack

cbff4_BigWMDsymbols-chemical-sml

In March 1995, Tokyo suffered a subway sarin attack. The attack was perpetrated by a religious movement Aum Shinrikyo. The perpetrators released sarin, a colorless, odorless liquid, by puncturing plastic bags of the toxin with the point of a vinyl umbrella, killing 12 people, injuring 50, and affecting over 1,000 people who were on the trains of the morning rush hour and were standing on nearby platforms.

Israel’s collaboration with other nations’ agencies and institutes

cbff4_BigWMDsymbols-chemical-smlbiowarfare-symbol-tiny

• IIBR has strong links with:

– Walter Reed Army Institute (USA)

– Uniformed Services University (Bethesda, Maryland, USA)

US Army Edgewood Chemical and Biological Weapons Center (Edgewood, Maryland; centers are also in Arkansas and Illinois)

– University of Utah

The cooperation between the Israeli research center and U.S. centers suggests the possibility that the U.S. clandestinely performs research on chemical and biological weapons by using the Israel institute as a substitute research center. Therefore, this might be one of the reasons the U.S. collaborates with the IIBR.

Three categories of research at the Israeli institute: diseases, toxins, convulsants

Knip identified three categories of biological weapons (BW) research at the IIBR:

1. Diseases: Yersinia pestis (plague), Rickettsia species (typhus), Rabies, West Nile virus, Leptospira species (e.g. Weil’s disease), Cryptococcus neoformans (a yeast), Sindbis virus, Newcastle disease (birds), African Swine fever, Coxiella burnetti (Q fever), Western Equine encephalomyelitis, Semliki Forest virus, Brucella abortus (brucellosis), Pasteurella multocida (fowl cholera), Lassa virus, EMC (encephalomyocarditis), Legionella, Rift Valley fever, Marek’s disease (poultry), Coccidioides immitis (fungus)

2. ToxinsElatericin, Saxitoxin, Tetrodotoxin, Pilocarpine-derivatives, Wasp venom, Elatericin-derivatives, Brevetoxin, SEB (Staphylococcus enterotoxin B), Scorpion venom, Cobra venom SEA (Staph.enterotoxin A), Cholera toxin, Bungarotoxin, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, exotoxin A, Shiga Toxin, Conotoxin, Diphtheria toxin

3. Convulsants: Bradykinin, Psychotropic substances, Cannabis (hashish), Phencyclidine (hallucinogen), Chlorpromazine (anti-psychoticum), Cannabis-derivatives (tetrahydrocannabinol), Fentanyl (narcoticum), QNB-derivatives (hallucinogen), Enkephalin, Endorphin, Morphine, Etonitazen, Phencyclidine derivatives, Benzodiazepine derivatives (convulsants), Heroin, Cannabis derivatives (amino-cannabinoids)

Toxin research more popular at the Israeli institute because toxins are more deadly than microbes

Over the decades, research in this institute has moved from viruses and bacteria to toxins because toxins are more deadly.

Nerve gases used in chemical weapons that have been researched include tabun, soman, sarin, VX, cyclo-sarin, RVX and amiton.

Knip discovered close cooperation between IIBR and the British-American biological weapon program. These joint programs deal research into weapons that can spread smallpox, fungal diseases and Legionnaires disease.

IIBR also researches plant poison called elate-ricin.

A recent trend in BW research at the IIBR is the development of incapacitants that paralyze and disorient. Most of these incapacitants have antidotes. These have been used against Palestinians in the Intifada.

There is collaboration in biological weapon research between Israel and Germany and Holland.

Defensive research a cover for research for chemical and biological offensive weapons

Collaboration with the US is outlined in the Congress report, “Joint Medical, Biological and Nuclear Defence Research Programs”. Under the guise of doing research to find antidotes, researchers also work on identifying the poison itself. The director of IIBR as of 2006, Dr. Avigdor Shafferman, is a frequent contributor to the program.

soman-sarin-v-gases-sml.jpg

Search for an antidote only a cover

Monitoring organizations turn a blind eye to CW and BW research in Israel

Organizations that are supposed to monitor and report on CW and BW research around the world, in order to prevent the proliferation of such weapons, in general, ignore the research done in Israel’s centers of CW and BW research. One such organization that turns a blind eye is The Preparatory Commission for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), in The Hague.

This happens despite the fact that Israeli researchers work at this organization. Their work in this organization includes guiding the organization on methods for detecting chemical weapons. In contrast, Middle Eastern and other nations that have an adversarial relationship with Israel are frequently the focus of attention of these organizations, even though little or no proof exists that they are actively engaged in conducting such research.

munitions-binary-blue-sml.jpg

Binary munitions that deliver chemicals such as VX and sarin; note that this binary method is only used for munitions delivery of these chemicals and not for manual application of the poisons. North Korea has been accused of using a female Vietnamese woman to apply VX poison to a North Korean national using the binary method at Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur International Airport. However, no literature exists showing how a manual application of VX toxin can be safely done by perpetrators. 

Israel is made the exception

Even though Israeli researchers R. Barak (IIBR), A. Lorber (CHEMO Solutions), and Z. Boger (Rotem Industries) have proposed methods to detect chemical warfare agents, no international body is willing to use these same methods to detect chemical weapons in Israel’s case.

CW and BW monitoring methods available

Even though mechanisms to monitor BW and CW research is available, no one in the US or the West seems interested in inspecting Israel Institute of Biological Research. A former research has said that the institute tests every chemical and biological weapon known to man there.

Double standards applied to Israel

Even though Americans’ research is often criticized as contravening the rules of CWC and BWC, Israel’s research is never the target of the same criticism. (Israel has signed the CWC but not ratified it, and has not signed the BWC.):

– Professor Keith Yamamoto (University of California) and Dr Jonathan King (MIT) have criticized the American government claims that the the research into bioweapons is defensive, arguing that attempting to modify toxins (as IIBR does) can hardly be considered “defensive” research. Therefore similar research done at the IIBR, to modify toxins, cannot be considered defensive research. In addition, Americans and Israelis share their research on CW and BW.

More victims of Israel’s chemical and biological warfare

Nerve gas, defoliants, phosphorus shells used on crops, protestors, and prisoners during peacetime, and on combatants and civilians during wartime

cbff4_BigWMDsymbols-chemical-smlbiowarfare-symbol-tiny

There are many cases of nerve gas and other chemical/biological weapons being used by the Israelis on Palestinians and other Arabs:

* Defoliants causing crop failure: Chemical defoliants used on Palestinian crops to cause crop failure. This happened on 4 occasions: 1) in Ain Al-Beida in 1968, 2) Aqraba in 1972, 3) Mejdel Beni Fadil in 1978 and 4) Negev in 2002.

* Chemical weapons (hydrogen cyanide and other nerve agents): In the 1982 war on Lebanon, it is claimed that chemical weapons, including hydrogen cyanide and other nerve gas agents, as well as phosphorus shells (white phosphorus), were used by Israel against Lebanese combatants and civilians.

* Lethal gas against prisoners: Lethal gas was used against Palestinian and Lebanese prisoners.

*Incapacitants were used against Palestinians in Khan Younis (Gaza) in February 2001:

  • Quote:

    “First, the victims thought it was tear gas. It had a faint odour like mint. It smelled “like sugar”, one victim reported. It changed colour “like a rainbow”. Fifteen minutes later, the victim felt that his “stomach was torn apart, with burning sensation in [his] chest, could not breathe”. Soon convulsions started. The victim would jump up and down, left and right, thrashing limbs around, with a kind of hysteria. Some victims were unconscious. The victim would vomit incessantly and then pain would return. This would go on for days or, for some, weeks.”

  • This event is well-documented. The victims were filmed by American filmmaker James Longley. He compiled a 19-page document containing interviews with 19 gassing victims, and doctors and nurses.
  • These incapacitants were repeatedly used in Al-Birch, Nablus, and West Bank, and Gaza.
  • The US government has not condemned the gassing and simply ignored it even though Suha Arafat (Yasser Arafat’s wife) drew attention to the gassing by Israelis in 1999 at a meeting at which Hillary Clinton was present.

Long term effects may include cancer

The long term effects of nerve agents and toxins are unknown. It is speculated that the long term effects of these nerve agents include cancer.

“On 3 February, 2003, Dr Khamis Al-Najjar, director of Cancer Research Centre of the Ministry of Health in Ramallah reported an alarming increase in cancer cases, especially among women and children. The report covers the period 1995-2000 and shows 3,646 cases, with more than half among females. The cases in Gaza are more than the West Bank. The report, citing the rate of increase, predicts that cases will triple in the near future.”

Cumulative exposure to toxins may increase risk of cancer

The cumulative effects of the Israelis using toxins on Palestinians may be behind the increased incidence of cancer cases among Palestinians.

The use of chemical and biological weapons by the Israelis on Palestinian populations is speculated to be part of an Israeli population reduction campaign aimed at the Palestinians. It has been noted that Israelis have long been paranoid about the Palestinians’ high multiplication rates.

Plot to poison Hamas leader

It was reported that Mossad tried to assassinate a senior operative in Hamas, Khaled Mash’al, in Jordan in 1997.

The agents were caught by Jordanian police who were near the site of the alleged poisoning, and Israel was ordered to supply an antidote.

It is speculated that the toxin that was allegedly used was Staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB). It can be applied to the victim through a gun from up to 50 meters away. (Gun’s range is 50 meters.)

Was this poisoning fake? 

However, there are suspicions that the poisoning was a pre-planned plot and was faked, with Mash’al a willing participant in the conspiracy. According to this conspiracy theory, Israelis would pretend to poison Mash’al. The purpose of the fake poisoning was to boost his credentials as an anti-Zionist figure, so that he could more easily insinuate himself into the leadership of Hamas. Once he became the leader, he would act as an agent of the Israelis, the aim of the plot.

Was the assassination attempt a ruse to trick the Palestinians into trusting Mash’al? Was Mash’al an agent of the Israelis?

Was a radiological substance used to kill Arafat? 

cbff4_BigWMDsymbols-radiol-sml

There is forensic evidence that PLO chairman Yasser Arafat was killed with polonium-210. Since polonium is rare, sufficient quantities of the radioactive substance to kill someone needs to be made in a nuclear reactor. This points to a nation that has the ability to manufacture polonium as the culprit. It looks as if Arafat’s assassination was done by a government that has the ability to make nuclear weapons and is not monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Polonium-210 is also implicated in the death of Alexander Litvinenko (see below).

polonium-lgrs13-polonium-smliso1-polonium-sml
Left: Polonium in its ore form. Polonium has got several isotopes. Polonium-210 is highly radioactive. The half-life is 138 days. 

Points supporting radiological poisoning of Arafat:

A Swiss institute that examined Arafat’s hair, saliva, urine, and blood samples that were taken from his belongings said that the samples showed elevated levels of polonium-120.

In 2012 (eight years after his death in 2004), another toxicological examination, this time of his bones and other tissues that were exhumed, showed high levels of polonium:

‘fragments of bones taken from his left ribs and pelvis as well as remnants of tissue from the abdominal cavity and grave soil, showed “unexpectedly high” activity of polonium-210.

The level of polonium was 18x higher than normal. This examination was done by a Swiss team that was part of a group that held an enquiry into his death.

‘In August last year [2012], French prosecutors opened a murder inquiry into Arafat’s death. In November [2012], Arafat’s corpse was exhumed from its mausoleum in Ramallah in the presence of three international teams of scientists: the Swiss team, a French team that was part of the Paris judicial investigation and a Russian team.’

David Barclay, a British forensic scientist who had studied the 2008 report of the exhumed remains, told al-Jazeera:

“The report contains strong evidence, in my view conclusive evidence, that there’s at least 18 times the level of polonium in Arafat’s exhumed body than there should be … I would point to him being given a fatal dose. I don’t think there’s any doubt at all.”

(Above adapted from The Guardian)

How the alleged poisoning could have been done

“Arafat died on 11 November 2004. He had been transferred there from his headquarters in the West Bank after his health deteriorated over weeks, beginning with severe nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhoea around four hours after eating dinner on 12 October.”  The Guardian

The following is from The Guardian:

arafat-pic-sml.jpg

Yasser Arafat, Chairman of the PLO

Swiss scientists found levels of polonium 18 times higher than normal in first forensic tests on former Palestinian leader’s body.

The Swiss scientists who tested Arafat’s remains after the exhumation of his body in November 2012 discovered levels of polonium at least 18 times higher than usual in Arafat’s ribs, pelvis and in soil that absorbed his bodily fluids …

The Swiss report said … the results “moderately support the proposition that the death was the consequence of poisoning with polonium-210”.

Suha Arafat said the evidence in the report suggested that her then healthy 75-year-old husband, who died in 2004 four weeks after he first fell ill following a meal, was almost certainly murdered by poisoning …

David Barclay, a British forensic scientist who had studied the report, told al-Jazeera: “The report contains strong evidence, in my view conclusive evidence, that there’s at least 18 times the level of polonium in Arafat’s exhumed body than there should be.”

He said the report represented “a smoking gun”. Barclay said … “I would point to him being given a fatal dose. I don’t think there’s any doubt at all.”

The Israeli government, however, dismissed the report. “The Swiss findings are not conclusive,” said Yigal Palmor, a foreign ministry spokesman.

“Even if they did find traces of polonium that could indicate poisoning, there’s no evidence of how that poisoning occurred.” …

Dov Weissglass, a former aide to Ariel Sharon, the Israeli prime minister at the time of Arafat’s death, also denied Israeli involvement …

“By the end of 2004, we had no interest in harming him. By then, Arafat was marginalised, his control over Palestinian life was minimal. So there was no logic, no reason.”

Danny Rubinstein, a journalist and author of a book about Arafat, had a different memory of events. In the weeks and months before Arafat’s death, he said, people in Sharon’s inner circle talked constantly about how to get rid of him …

Arafat died in a French military hospital on 11 November 2004. He had been transferred there from his headquarters in the West Bank after his health deteriorated over weeks, beginning with severe nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhoea around four hours after eating dinner on 12 October. French doctors have said he died of a massive stroke and had suffered from a blood condition known as disseminated intravascular coagulation, or DIC. But the records were inconclusive about what brought about the DIC. No autopsy was carried out …

Al-Jazeera said it was given access to a duffel bag of Arafat’s personal effects by his widow, which it passed to a Swiss institute. Swiss toxicological tests on those samples including hair from a hat, saliva from a toothbrush, urine droplets on underpants and blood on a hospital hat found that the belongings had elevated traces of polonium-210, the lethal substance used to kill the Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko.

The Swiss institute said Arafat’s bones would have to be tested to get a clearer answer, warning that polonium decayed fast and an autopsy needed to be done quickly. In August last year, French prosecutors opened a murder inquiry into Arafat’s death. In November, Arafat’s corpse was exhumed from its mausoleum in Ramallah in the presence of three international teams of scientists: the Swiss team, a French team that was part of the Paris judicial investigation and a Russian team.

The Swiss team’s report states that they carried out toxicological tests on Arafat’s “almost skeletonised body along with residues from his shroud”. The samples, including fragments of bones taken from his left ribs and pelvis as well as remnants of tissue from the abdominal cavity and grave soil, showed “unexpectedly high” activity of polonium-210.

Alexander Litvinenko – a false flag radiological poisoning?

cbff4_BigWMDsymbols-radiol-sml

Russian former FSB spy Litvinenko died of polonium-210 poisoning in 2006. As this radioactive poison is usually made in a nuclear reactor, a state agency of a nation that makes nuclear weapons would probably be behind the poisoning. This narrows the list of possible suspects down. Polonium is also a very expensive poison. It has been estimated that the polonium that killed Litvinenko cost $10 million.

Polonium-210-636709-livitnenkopolonium-liquid-sml

From Wikipedia:

• Polonium is a chemical element with symbol Po and atomic number 84. It is a rare and highly radioactive metal with no stable isotopes.

• Due to the short half-life of all its isotopes, its natural occurrence is limited to tiny traces of the fleeting polonium-210 (with a half-life of 138 days) in uranium ores.

• Today, polonium is usually produced in milligram quantities by the neutron irradiation of bismuth.

• Polonium was discovered in 1898 by Marie and Pierre Curie, when it was extracted from uranium ore and identified solely by its strong radioactivity: it was the first element to be so discovered.

• Polonium has few applications, and those are related to its radioactivity: heaters in space probes, antistatic devices, and sources of neutrons and alpha particles.

• Polonium’s intense radioactivity makes it dangerously toxic.

Where do we go from here? Israel’s disregard for conventions and prohibitions

weapons-mass-destruction.jpeg

Israel and Chemical Weapons and Biological Weapons Conventions

Israel has signed but not ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), the treaty that bans the use, development and proliferation of chemical weapons. Israel has not signed the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC).

Israel’s lack of recognition of international statutes that prohibit occupation 

Israel does not recognize the validity of the Fourth Geneva Convention on Occupied Palestinian Territories of the West Bank and Gaza.

One article of the convention states:

“The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.”

Israel has been slowly occupying Palestinian territory over the years to the point where now most of Palestine is occupied by Israelis.

PalestineIsraelMap580-border.jpg

The green parts that are occupied by Palestinians; the white parts by Israelis.

Israel disregards prohibitions against causing injury and harm to civilians

Israel disregards the Geneva Convention article of law that stipulates that:

‘[To] willingly cause [civilians] great suffering or serious injury to body or health” is a “grave breach”, which, according to Article-146, requires all High Contracting Parties to “search for persons alleged to have committed or to have ordered to commit such grave breaches” and must “bring such person regardless of their nationality before their own courts”.’

Israel violates poisonous gas and chemical weapons codes

Other conventions that Israel has violated include the Geneva Protocol of 1925 on Poisonous Gas, and the 1993 Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons.

Discrimination in the application of this law by the U.N. 

1200px-WMD_world_map.svg copy-sml-bdr.png

Despite this, the U.N. dispatches hundreds of inspectors to inspect homes and workshops in Iraq but sends none to Israel.

U.S. a member of the U.N. Security Council ignores Israel’s violations

UN-Logo-sml.jpg

Even though Israel violates the conventions set by the U.N. against the use and development of CW and BW, the U.S. has never condemned Israel, and in fact, has blocked other nations from condemning Israel, and continues to conduct research into CW and BW with Israel, and allows the transfer of chemicals used in CW and BW research to Israel. In addition, the US gives Israel large amounts of foreign aid, the largest amount to any nation.

Furthermore, the U.S. frequently condemns North Korea over its alleged CW and BW programs, although no proof has ever been supplied by any nation for these programs’ existence. The Malaysian airport criminal case is still undergoing (April, 2017). The only claims that North Korea has these programs point to anonymous sources and unconfirmed sources within the South Korean intelligence agency. Many reports that allege North Korea is active in manufacturing and proliferating CW and BW emanate from Israeli sources (see Israel’s propaganda campaign section on this page).

Netanyahu frequently speaks about Iran and nuclear weapons while he never mentions the fact that Israel’s nuclear program, estimated to have produced hundreds of nuclear weapons, has already been exposed to the world by Mordechai Vanunu, a former worker at Dimona. Nor does he speak about Israel’s chemical and biological weapons.

VIDEO: Was A Fission Bomb Used On Noqom Mountain  ArchiveOrg

A video of the bombing of Noqom Mountain by the US-backed Saudi forces on October 11, 2015. US planes refuel Saudi Arabia and assist them in other ways in its attacks on Yemen. Noqom Mountain overlooks Sanaa, the capital, and a highly populated, dense residential area. It is under Houthis control. Explosions continued for a very long time and caused most families to leave their homes. Several children are reported missing.

The man who shot the second of the explosions, Abdul Hamed, told Storyful about the footage:

“Yes, I was walking at the garden of my home to enter the house, as I saw the smoke from the first Saudi Strike. I wanted to film it before entering my home to hide from the following air strikes. As I just started filming, I saw a new fire, I kept filming as I didn’t expected the fire to expand like that. As I started to feel the heat of the bomb I had to run a way. As I was running a way the window glasses was falling down around me. From the tremendous pressure all the house ‘ windows fall down. I was so worried about my wife and our baby as she is pregnant. Someone has to stop those crazy people.”

NORTH KOREA FRAMED IN CHEONAN FALSE FLAG

cheonan-lifted-out-of-water

A section of the South Korean corvette “Cheonan” lifted out of the water; the ship was cut in half by the explosion

Israel did a false flag in March 26, 2010 that was blamed on North Korea . 46 of the 104 sailors aboard a South Korean corvette called “Cheonan” (pronounced “Choh-nahn”) died in this false flag when the ship exploded and sank.

A nuclear false flag attack on carrier strike group?

north korea false flag australia apunked2

There is a high risk that Israel will perform another false flag that is similar to the Cheonan false flag. The US carrier strike group is currently heading to the waters near the North Korean coast (April 25th, 2017).

Israel may have attached nuclear explosives to one or more carriers while the carriers were docked in Singapore. This may have been the reason why the carrier was diverted to Singapore. Singapore is a nation that has close ties, including military ties, with Israel. There is a notably significant Mossad presence in Singapore. The U.S. media reported that while in Singapore, the USS Carl Vinson did exercises with the Australian Navy.

carriers-sml.jpg
Is the USS Carl Vinson a floating nuclear bomb?

Other carriers are joining the USS Vinson. When the carriers are near North Korea, the nuclear explosives may be detonated, and the subsequent explosion blamed on a nuclear missile fired from a North Korean submarine. If this scenario does eventuate, it could be used as a pretext for the U.S. to attack North Korea with nuclear weapons, initiating a nuclear war between the US and North Korea.

North Korea may be able to fight a conventional war against the U.S. and survive but it won’t be able to fight one-on-one a nuclear war with the U.S.  This might be a reason why the perpetrators may want a nuclear war to occur on the peninsula in preference to a conventional war.

Israel has to get the U.S. to attack North Korea before May 9th. This is the date of the South Korean elections. The frontrunner is Moon Jae-In. He is ahead of the runner up by 10 points. Moon Jae-In has stated he will sign a peace treaty with North Korea if he is elected. He has said “there is nothing more dangerous than having others decide our fate”.

After he is elected, there is very little chance that South Korea would agree to North Korea being attacked, and the president is likely to take actions, such as re-opening the Gaesong industrial complex, to cement ties with North Korea and further the cause of peaceful reunification with North Korea.

Read how North Korea was framed in the Malaysian Airport incident.

Does North Korean submarines shoot ballistic missiles out of the water? 

In the May 2015 news report, experts claim the video of an underwater submarine launch of a ballistic missile was modified.

Reasons:

  • reflection of the exhaust flame did not match with the actual exhaust flame seen coming from the missile
  • Photos are different. In one photo shown on state TV, a missile high in the sky leaves a trail of white smoke. But in other photos from state media, there is no white smoke. This could mean that these photos were of different missiles that had different propulsion systems.

“[It] seems sensible to assume that any North Korean SLBM [submarine-launched ballistic missile] capability is still a very long time in the future, if it will ever surface,” Markus Schiller and Robert Schmucker, of Schmucker Technologie, told Reuters.

James Winnefeld, a US navy admiral, said that Pyongyang is still “many years” from developing submarine-launched ballistic missiles.

submarine-ballistic-smal.jpg

It published photographs of Kim Jong-un watching as missiles were apparently fired from a submarine beneath the ocean surface. However these may be faked photographs. 

Adapted from The Telegraph

How the Cheonan attack was done:

Israeli commandos infiltrated the security of Cheonan and attached explosives to the Cheonan ship , either while it was docked in South Korea, or when it was floating offshore. Mini-submarines could have been used to approach the ship underwater to attach explosives. At the appointed time, Israel detonated the explosive charges on the ship by remote control detonation from a mini-drone that flew above the ship at the moment of detonation. The drone remained in the area for at least half an hour after the detonation to monitor developments.
A torpedo was planted on the sea floor near the vicinity of the corvette as part of the preparation for the false flag. This rocket was later found during investigations. “No. 1” was written in what was thought to be North Korean language on the torpedo before it was dropped into the ocean.

3DV9-mini-submarine-sml

The torpedo is unlikely to have been a North Korean one 

Reasons: 

  1. Schematics of the torpedo found on the sea bed do not match with North Korean torpedoes
  2. The torpedo was of German manufacture
  3. The writing on the torpedo was written over the rust on the torpedo
  4. The writing did not match North Korean language
  5. No torpedo was picked up by sonar prior to the explosion
  6. North Korea vehemently denied it was behind the attack and requested access to the evidence, which was denied

Schematics do not match North Korean torpedoes

not-a-perfect-match-updated2-cheonan.jpg
There are 5 clear differences in the design of these weapons:

1. “A” & “D” –  In the diagram of the North Korean torpedo (schematic at top), you can see it has a smaller hub than the actual torpedo that was recovered.

2. * “B” – The actual shape of the propellers in the schematic of the North Korean torpedo is very different to the shape of the propellers in the recovered torpedo. You can see a notch in the diagram above that doesn’t exist in the propeller below. The overall shape of the blades are vastly different as well, with regards to both the front and the rear propeller sets.
Now, the last point proves they are not the same torpedo.

3.  “C” – As you can plainly see, the stabilizers (or propulsion system?) in the schematic of a North Korean torpedo above are clearly shown IN FRONT of the separation plate. However, looking at the torpedo that was recovered, the same stabilizer (or propulsion system) is housed BEHIND the separation plate (separating the body and the tail section of the torpedo).

4. The shape of the fins in the schematic of the North Korean torpedo and the torpedo that was recovered from the ocean bed is different.

5. The axle of the North Korean torpedo is straight whereas the axle in the recovered torpedo is tapered.

Adapted from The Sinking of the Cheonan: We are being lied to

The torpedo was of German manufacture

On May 6th, 2010 a report conducted by South Korea and others came out that said the torpedo’s metal and explosive residue had a German origin.

The team of South Korean and foreign investigators found traces of explosives on several parts of the sunken ship. The investigators also discovered pieces of composite metal used in such torpedoes, according to the South Korea’s Yonhap news agency, quoting a senior government official.

… The metallic debris and chemical residue appear to be consistent with a type of torpedo made in Germany, indicating the North may have been trying to disguise its involvement by avoiding arms made by allies China and Russia, Yonhap quoted the official as saying. REUTERS News Agency

More from The Sinking of the Cheonan: We are being lied to.

The author of The Sinking of the Cheonan: We are being lied to states that the torpedo that was recovered from the ocean floor resembles the German-made DM2 A-3. This torpedo can be upgraded to the DM2 A-4 version.

german-torpedo.jpg

German-made torpedo DM2

In a paper I wrote yesterday I questioned whether or not the German-made DM2-A3 looked more like what was found.

“The DM2 A-3 version is also used by the Norwegian Ula class (German Type 210 subs) with an option for a later upgrade). The Italian Type 212 B submarines use the DM2 A-4 version. The Israeli Dolphin-class (German Type S-300) are also being equipped with the DM2 A-4 Torpedo.” 

The German navy, Italian navy, Norwegian navy and Israeli navy all use the German-made DM2 A-3 or DM2 A-4 torpedo.

Berlin does not sell torpedoes to North Korea, however, Germany does maintain a close joint submarine and submarine weapons development program with Israel. Asia Times

Israel bought German-made torpedoes

Germany worked with Israel manufacture torpedoes according to this article written in 1995.

Electric Fuel Ltd., an Israeli electric battery manufacturer, said in late June it will help German defense contractor STN Atlas Elektronik GmbH develop a torpedo for the German navy.

Also, in this report, written in 2002, Germany had an armaments cooperation deal with Israel, in which many weapons and submarines were supplied to Israel. This cooperation in arms goes back to 1955/56.

German-Israeli armaments cooperation can be traced back to 1955/56 when Germany exported two coastal patrol boats to Israel. German-Israeli Arms Cooperation CAST: Eksport Vooruzheniy No. 6, Nov/Dec 2002

This cooperation includes the sale of German torpedoes to Israel. Israel chose to buy the DM 2A3 torpedo from Germany. This torpedo resembles the torpedo found on the sea bed in the Cheonan incident.

Even regarding “minor” purchases of subsystems, Israel has to resort either to US funds or to exchange-trade solutions. When it came to the selection of heavyweight torpedoes for the submarines, Israel at first wanted to buy US torpedoes Mk.48. When the US government declined, Israel chose the STN Atlas Elektronik Torpedo DM 2A3 export version Seahake. German-Israeli Arms Cooperation

Comparison of the German-made DM2 A-4 torpedo, recovered torpedo and schematics of North Korean torpedo

The shape of the propeller of the North Korean torpedo differs from the shape of the propeller of the German-made DM2 and the recovered rusty torpedo.

There was writing on top of the rust on the torpedo

no-1-written-on-rust-lrg.jpg

Readers of the website Willy Loman: We are being lied to about Cheonan are providing photographic evidence that the writing on the torpedo was written after the torpedo part was taken out of the water.

Mr. Shin was one of the investigators assigned to help with the official investigation of the sinking of the Cheonan. He is now being investigated for disagreeing with the “official results“.

Shin said Wednesday in a lecture he titled “Can we trust the Cheonan probe outcome?”
“The magnified photo of the evidence showed that the marking was written on the rusted surface,” he said. “If it were the North who marked it, the marking should have been written on a smooth surface.”

Below are the images of the writing of “No. 1” (1번) written on the torpedo part. You can clearly see in the progression of images that the marker ink was laid on top of some of the rust. You can also see where an area was cleaned prior to the writing.

The writing of “No. 1” is not North Korean language

writing-photo-7-cheonan-number1.jpg

According to Kim Myong Chol, who is referred to as the unofficial spokesman of the North Korean government, the writing of “No. 1” is consistent with South Korean language but not North Korean language. South Koreans write “No. 1” as “il bon” (1번), but North Koreans write it as “il ho” (1호).

The investigation team produced what it termed “conclusive evidence”: the eye-catching hand-written Korean markings “ilbon” or “No 1″ in English found on the propulsion section of the used torpedo allegedly recovered from the sea bed.

This turns out to be most inconclusive and counter-productive, calling into serious question the credibility of the findings. The use of “ilbon” in Korean script – not in Chinese characters – may look like North Korean writing, which is distinctly different from what is written in South Korea.

But native North Koreans use “ilho” for the English “No 1″. “Ilbon” is what South Koreans would use, although North Korean street addresses more often than often not do contain numerals like “ilbon“.

Asia Times

The discrepancy suggests that North Korea was framed. The perpetrator deliberately wrote “No. 1” in Hangeul (Korean characters) on top of the rust, not knowing that the North Korean language differs slightly from South Korean language.

Letter from South Korean Government: Confirms North Korean language different

The South Korean Government wrote a letter to the U.N. Security Council. In this letter are the photographs below. On the left is the CHT-02D, the torpedo that was recovered from the seabed in the Cheonan incident. “No. 1” is written as “1번” (“1 bon”). On the right is an torpedo that is alleged to be of North Korean origin that had been previously obtained by the South Korean Government. The writing of “No. 4” on the alleged North Korean torpedo is “4호” (“4 ho”).

The language on the two torpedoes is different. Pictures are from a South Korean Government letter to the U.N. Security Council. 

The alleged torpedo eluded sonar

In an article for Asia Times (see below), the author Myong Chol notes that the Chinese government did not accept the findings of the UN and stated that there were suspicions the Cheonan sinking was a false flag incident.

The main points that are put forward for this view, according to two American websites, are (Did an American Mine Sink South Korean Ship?):

To summarize the points:

  • The site of the Cheonan sinking was relatively noiseless. It was near a naval base, on Baengnyeong Island (“Baeng-nyeong Island”), that conducts anti-submarine warfare, such as detecting the presence of enemy submarines. The conditions there were perfect for picking up the slightest agitation, such as the firing of a torpedo or the movements of a nearby submarine.
  • A flotilla of ships, led by an Aegis warship, was in South Korean waters at the time of the sinking.
  • The Cheonan sinking occurred in the aftermath of the March 11-18 Foal Eagle Exercise, which included anti-submarine maneuvers by a joint U.S.-South Korean squadron of five missile ships.
  • One of the ships in the flotilla was USNS Savor which was a mine-laying ship. It was located close to the naval base on Baengnyeong Island.
  • Berlin does not sell torpedoes to North Korea, however, Germany does maintain a close joint submarine and submarine weapons development program with Israel.”

From Asia Times:

Fact One: Baengnyeong Island hosts a Secret Joint US-South Korean Naval Base for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) operations. Absent civilian traffic around it, “the noiseless conditions are near-perfect for picking up the slightest agitation, for example from a torpedo and any submarine that might fire it”. The joint US-South Korean naval base is staffed by American and South Korean naval special operation force personnel.

Fact Two: An Aegis ship-led US flotilla was operating in the South Korean waters in question at the time of the sinking of the South Korean warship.

Fact Three: The US flotilla included a mine-laying USNS Savor, stationed close to Baengnyeong Island.

Contrary to the belief that the ship was under the command of the Seventh Fleet, the NAM story noted that the USNS Salvor was “controlled by the innocuous-sounding Military Sealift Command and is closely connected with the Office of Naval Intelligence since their duties include secret operations such as retrieving weapons from sunken foreign ships, scouting harbor channels and laying mines, as when the Salvor trained Royal Thai Marine divers in mine-laying in the Gulf of Thailand in 2006, for example.”

Fact Four: The US Navy SEALs “maintains a sampling of European torpedoes for sake of plausible deniability for false-flag attacks. Also, Berlin does not sell torpedoes to North Korea, however, Germany does maintain a close joint submarine and submarine weapons development program with Israel.”

Baengnyeong Island. The Cheonan was sunk 5 km from the naval base. 

China stated that there were strong grounds to suspect North Korea was innocent

In an article in New America Media, it was reported that:


In the recent U.S.-China strategic talks in Shanghai and Beijing, the Chinese side dismissed the official scenario presented by the Americans and their South Korean allies as not credible. This conclusion was based on an independent technical assessment by the Chinese military, according to a Beijing-based military affairs consultant to the People Liberation Army.

__________________________________________________

Initial assessment: North Korean attack unlikely

  • No suspicious activities or movements detected before and after the ship sank.
  • North Korean warship’s infiltration would have been easily revealed as site of incident was only 10-12 kilometers from the Northern Limit Line (de facto sea border between North Korea and South Korea) where vigilance is high and monitoring and surveillance activities are carried out
  • Waters where the corvette sank is shallow, which would make the operation of a North Korean war ship difficult

Some features of the incident:

– all electricity was cut off at the time of the explosion, causing communications to shut down except cell phone operation

– internal shock can’t be ruled out

– the ship was split in half by the explosion and the back half immediately sank

– the explosion and sinking of back half happened in two minutes

cheonan-1-island-lifted

Baengnyeong Island (“Baeng-nyong” Island) is a joint US/ROK forward intelligence naval base that specializes in anti-submarine warfare, mine warfare and is the base for USN Seals. –Peter Eyre – Middle East Consultant

From Korea Herald (March 27, 2010):

[Commander] Choi Won-il, who led the sunken ship, said the explosion appears to have been caused by “internal or external shocks.”

“The exact cause of the explosion can be verified after the ship is salvaged and a thorough investigation is carried out,” he said. “The ship was broken into two parts and the rear of the ship abruptly sank…

During an emergency session of the National Assembly’s defense committee, Lee Gi-sik, chief of the Defense Ministry’s intelligence operations, said that captain Choi reported the situation to the chief of naval operations with his mobile phone right before the ship sank.

“All electricity was cut off at the time so the captain reported the situation with his cell phone,” Lee said.

“There was a big detonation and the engine stopped and the electricity was cut off. I went up to the deck and couldn’t see the stern of the ship there. All happened within two minutes,” the captain was quoted as saying by Rep. Kim Hak-song of the ruling Grand National Party who chairs the committee.

Some reports earlier said that the government presumes that the possibility of North Korea’s involvement in the incident is low.

According to them, as the Northern Limit Line, which serves as a de facto sea border, is about 10-12 kilometers away from where the ship sank, a North Korean warship’s infiltration would have been easily revealed. They added that the waters where the ship sank were relatively shallow, meaning the operation of a North Korean warship would be difficult.

The U.S. forces in Korea are also said to presume that the possibility of North Korea’s involvement is low as there were no suspicious activities or movements detected before and after the ship sank.

“The exact cause of the incident has yet to be verified, but if we sum up investigations conducted by related ministries, the North does not appear to be involved in the incident,” a government source was quoted by Yonhap News as saying.

Radar picked up significant activity – UAV?

The radar of one of the ships in the Joint Strike Command picked up some activity in the air 27 minutes after the explosion, and the ship fired on the “radar contact”. This was said to have been birds, but others said this was unlikely as “the Navy’s patrol ships are equipped with sophisticated radar devices.”

cheonan-sinking-graphic-lrg.jpg

9:30 pm Friday: Blast occurred ; 9:57 pm: Warning shot at unidentified object

The possibility that a UAV was deployed in the vicinity of the Cheonan around the time of the attack in order to:

  1. Detonate the explosive on the ship by remote control
  2. Monitor the ship and activities after the explosion

Drones could have been used to detonate the device as probably happened in the 9/11 attacks

Drones could have been employed thus in the same way they are presumed to have been used in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

chopper10 (1)-200h   naval-aircraft-missiles-web-53-728-200h

In the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, it is theorized that helicopter drones could have been used to detonate the explosive devices within the buildings by remote control (see “Plane Missile”). In the same way, UAVs may have controlled the detonation of the explosives that had been pre-planted in or on the Cheonan. Right: The missile would be a limpet mine attached to the ship. The firing would be done with radio remote control. 

There was much helicopter activity around the World Trade Center Twin Towers during the attacks. Helicopters were flying near the Twin Towers at the times of detonations and shortly prior to the detonations. If they were drones, they could have been used to effect the remote detonation of the explosives in the Twin Towers. Signals could have been relayed from a ground control station to the drone helicopters, and then the signal to fire could have been sent from the drones to the explosives within the buildings.

From Korea Times:

Another lingering question is why a nearby patrol ship fired a warning shot toward the North soon after the tragic sinking.

In this regard, the JSC said one of their ships had fired on a radar contact that turned out to be a flock of birds.

Some military experts, however, point out that the chance of firing warning shots at a flock of birds is unlikely, as the Navy’s patrol ships are equipped with sophisticated radar devices.

How the attack could have happened (speculation)

Mini-submarines (“human torpedoes”)

An Israeli submarine was sent to the South Korean region. Israel is known to possess Dolphin class submarines. It purchased its first German-made Dolphin class submarine in 1999. A mini submarine, either a one-person or two-person submarine, was sent to the corvette, which was floating about 5 km off the coast off South Korea.

The mini submarine is often cigar-shaped and is often called a “human torpedo” because of its torpedo-like shape. (Image from Maiale-Pig-Human-Torpedo)

Limpet mine

The mini submarine was used to transport an explosive, possibly an attachable explosive, like a limpet mine.

limpet mine on hull-mdf.jpg

Image of a limpet mine attached to a ship’s hull. (Image taken from video)

Once the corvette was reached, the explosive was attached to the under-surface of the corvette.

Too small to be picked up by radar

The mini submarine would be too small to be picked up by sonar. It is not known if the South Korean ship had been equipped with a hydrophone.

Schematics of North Korean torpedoes

Israelis knew the schematics of North Korean torpedoes because North Korean ships had been intercepted in the past carrying torpedoes, which were probably headed for an ally nation of North Korea, as part of a sale of arms. Printed schematics of North Korean submarines could have been obtained in this way.

Additionally, South Korea had access to the schematics as well as they had captured a North Korean torpedo in the past, as revealed in the letter South Korean authorities sent to the U.N. about the Cheonan incident. As it can be presumed that South Korean intelligence is shared with the US, it can also be assumed that anything that the US has access to, the Israeli intelligence service has the same access to. A torpedo of German manufacture was used for this operation as it was a close match to the schematics of a North Korean torpedo.

“No. 1” not written in North Korean language

On a separate trip, the mini-submarine dropped off a German-made torpedo with “No. 1” written on it (but the language did not match North Korean language), on top of the rust, in the vicinity of the corvette, where the torpedo sank to the ocean floor.

un-letter-north-korean-torpedo-hangeul (2).jpg

Note the words “No. 4” written in Hangeul (Korean script). 

un-letter-north-korean-torpedo-hangeul (3).jpg

The words “No. 1” looks as if it was written to emulate the writing on the previously obtained North Korean torpedo. However, if it was, the translation into North Korean language is wrong. 

UAV

After the explosive device had been attached to the ship and the rusty torpedo had been placed on the seafloor, when it came time for the device’s detonation, a UAV was sent to the ship, that was floating 5 km from the island of Baengnyeong to do the task. Bigger than a seagull but much smaller than a small ordinary plane, the unmanned aircraft was flown within the vicinity of the ship, and a radio signal was sent to it to execute the firing of the explosive device.

Operation Trojan

In 1986, the Israelis did a covert operation called “Operation Trojan”. This operation involved the use of two-man submarines called “pigs”. These submarines were cigar-shaped and were used to transport the “trojan” (a communications device), a cylinder that was six-feet long and seven-inches in diameter.

The cigar-shaped mini-subs were nicknamed “pigs”. 

The following is an extract from Victor Ostrovsky’s “The Other Side of Deception“, a book about the Mossad.

[In 1986] The commandos were charged with the task of planting the Trojan device in Tripoli, Libya.

On the night of February 17-18, two Israeli missile boats, the SAAR 4-class Moledet, armed with Harpoon and Gabriel surface-to-surface missiles, among other weaponry, and the Geula, a Hohit-class missile boat with a helicopter pad and regular SAAR 4-class armament, conducted what seemed like a routine patrol of the Mediterranean, heading for the Sicilian channel and passing just outside the territorial waters of Libya. Just north of Tripoli, the warships, which were visible to radar both in Tripoli and on the Italian island of Lampedusa, slowed down to about four knots – just long enough to allow a team of twelve naval commandos in four wet submarines nicknamed “pigs” and two low-profiled speedboats called “birds” to disembark. The pigs could carry two commandos each and all their fighting gear. The birds, equipped with an MG 7.62-caliber machine gun mounted over the bow and an array of antitank shoulder-carried missiles, could facilitate six commandos each, while towing the empty pigs. The birds brought the pigs as close to the shore as possible, thus cutting down the distance the pigs would have to travel on their own. (The pigs were submersible and silent but relatively slow.)

Two miles off the Libyan coast, the lights of Tripoli could be seen glistening in the southeast. Eight commandos slipped quietly into the pigs and headed for shore. The birds stayed behind at the rendezvous point, ready to take action should the situation arise. Once they reached the beach, the commandos left their cigar-like transporters submerged in the shallow water and headed inland, carrying a dark green Trojan cylinder six feet long and seven inches in diameter. It took two men to carry it.

A gray van was parked on the side of the road about one hundred feet from the water, on the coastal highway leading from Sabratah to Tripoli and on to Benghazi. There was hardly any traffic at that time of night. The driver of the van seemed to be repairing a flat tire. He stopped working as the team approached and opened the back doors of the van. He was a Mossad combatant. Without a word said, four of the men entered the van and headed for the city. The other four returned to the water, where they took a defensive position by the submerged pigs. Their job was to hold this position to ensure an escape route for the team now headed for the city.

UN Security Council statement did not identify the attacker; Russian Navy did not concur with South Korean and U.S. report

Peter Eyre – 5/4/2013 Galactic Connection

Quote: The ROKS Cheonan sinking occurred on 26 March 2010, when the Cheonan, a Republic of Korea Navy ship carrying 104 personnel, sank off the country’s west coast near Baengnyeong Island in the Yellow Sea, killing 46 seamen. A South Korean-led official investigation carried out by a team of international experts from South Korea, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Sweden presented a summary of its investigation on 20 May 2010, concluding that the warship had been sunk by a North Korean torpedo fired by a midget submarine.

North Korea denied that it was responsible for the sinking. North Korea’s further offer to aid an open investigation was disregarded The Peoples Republic of China dismissed the official scenario presented by South Korea and the United States as not credible. An investigation by the Russian Navy also did not concur with the report. The United Nations Security Council made a Presidential Statement condemning the attack but without identifying the attacker.

Baeng-nyeong Island – naval base

Peter Eyre – 5/4/2013  Galactic Connection

Quote: The Cheonan was sunk near Baengnyeong Island, a westernmost spot that is far from the South Korean coast, but opposite the North Korean coast. The island is heavily militarized and within artillery fire range of North Korean coastal defenses, which lie across a narrow channel.

…this particular area is a very sophisticated training ground for Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW) and accordingly would be extremely well protected against any intrusion by other vessel and or submarines. It is also important to keep in mind that this same area is also carefully monitored by China and Russia who have some very sophisticated equipment and apparatus to watch over every aspect of the Korean Peninsular.

The sinking of the South Korean Corvette Cheonan took place on the evening of March the 26th 2010 at 2122 local time in total darkness. The location was just offshore on the southwest corner of Baengnyeong Island which sits very close to the border with North Korea. The island is a hub for the South Korean military and is also a very active area for war games with many other nations, especially the United States Navy which I will explain below.

Baengnyeong Island is a Secret Joint US-South Korean Naval Base for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) operations. The surrounding waters are relatively void of any civilian vessels making it a perfect location for a multitude of naval exercises. What is more important is the solitude and silence in its waters making it a good location to install sonar listening devices which one normally associated with areas used for submarine training and anti submarine training. One could also assume that it would also be a good location for mine laying and mine sweeping activities as well as regular exercise in submarine hunting by both surface craft and submarines. Add to this both surface and sub-sea training by the US Navy Seals

It is very important to fully understand that this location would be very heavy protected by Land Sea and Air. The lack of en route traffic would also make it a perfect listening ground for approaching vessels, submarines or any other craft as well as any weapons that were release by a submarine such as a torpedo or underwater launched missile. The joint US-South Korean naval base is staffed by American and South Korean naval special operation force personnel and accordingly uses extremely sophisticated weapons and apparatus.

… Baengnyeong Island hosts a joint US-South Korea military intelligence base and the US Navy SEALS operate out of the base. In addition, four U.S. Navy ships were in the area, part of the joint U.S-South Korean Exercise Foal Eagle, during the sinking of the Cheonan.

Quote: One of the main purposes for increasing tensions on the Korean peninsula was to apply pressure on Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama to reverse course on moving the U.S. Marine Corps base off Okinawa. Hatoyama has admitted that the tensions over the sinking of the Cheonan played a large part in his decision to allow the U.S. Marines to remain on Okinawa.

Cheonan – state-of-the-art sonar

Peter Eyre – 5/4/2013  Galactic Connection

Quote: The Cheonan, an ASW corvette, was decked out with state-of-the-art sonar, plus it was operating in waters with extensive hydrophone sonar arrays and acoustic underwater sensors. There is no South Korean sonar or audio evidence of a torpedo, submarine or mini-sub in the area. Since there is next to no shipping in the channel, the sea was silent at the time of the sinking.

Initial reports: No evidence linking North Korea to the sinking

Quote: [The] Director of the South Korean National Intelligence – Won See-hoon told the South Korean Parliamentary Committee in early April, less than two weeks after the incident that there was no evidence linking North Korea to the sinking.

No torpedo, no warship, no submarine, no semi-submersible detected

Peter Eyre – 5/4/2013  Galactic Connection

Quote: South Korea’s Minister of Defence Kim Tae-young also backed him up by saying that the crew of the stricken corvette had not detected a torpedo.

It was also interesting to learn that the Head of the Marine Operations Office at the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff agreed that “No North Korean Warships have been detected in the waters where the accident took place.”

Defense Ministry officials added that they had not detected any North Korean submarines in the area at the time of the incident

When speculation persisted that the Cheonan had been sunk by a North Korean torpedo, the Defense Ministry called another press conference to reiterate “there was no unusual North Korean activities detected at the time of the disaster.”

A ministry spokesman, Won Tae-jae, told reporters that “With regard to this case, no particular activities by North Korean submarines or semi-submarines…have been verified. I am saying again that there were no activities that could be directly linked to” the Cheonan’s sinking.

Rear Admiral Lee, the head of the marine operations office, added that, “We closely watched the movement of the North’s vessels, including submarines and semi-submersibles, at the time of the sinking. But military did not detect any North Korean submarines near the country’s western sea border.”

Article from Asia Times:

Pyongyang: Cheonan was false-flag sinking

By Kim Myong Chol
(an “unofficial” spokesman of Kim Jong-il and North Korea) Jun 4, 2010

With a huge electronic intelligence-gathering machine at its disposal, the Chinese Navy keeps a close watch on the movements of the United States Navy in the West Sea (Yellow Sea). China’s emerging blue-sea navy is confronted with the US Seventh Fleet across the West Sea, the East China Sea and the rest of the Pacific.

It is no wonder then that the Chinese navy’s intelligence arm could piece together an accurate account of the sinking of the South Korean corvette Cheonan with a loss of 46 lives in the early hours of March 26.

The Chinese findings may be one of the reasons why the Chinese government has refused to support American and South Korean demand to join in sanctions against North Korea.

Their leakage indicates that despite its present neutrality, less prudent American or South Korean behavior may well prompt the Chinese government to have the navy make a bombshell official announcement implicating the US Navy.

In a highly significant development, the Chinese navy took the extraordinary step of quietly letting two American Internet sites know the findings of an independent technical assessment its naval intelligence arm made of the corvette’s sinking, which took place about 1 nautical mile (1.9 kilometers) off the south-west coast of Baengnyeong Island in the Yellow Sea.

Chinese findings

One of the US websites was the Washington-based investigative Wayne Madsen Report [1], while the other was New America Media, a California-based website that is the US’s largest coalition of ethnic media with over 2,500 partners [2].

New America Media posted an article on May 26, “Did an American Mine Sink South Korean Ship?”. The Madsen Report article, dated May 28, was entitled “Beijing Suspects False Flag Attack on South Korean Corvette.”

The NAM story said: “In the recent US-China strategic talks in Shanghai and Beijing, the Chinese side dismissed the official scenario presented by the Americans and their South Korean allies as not credible.”

The two articles basically agreed that a US mine ripped the Cheonan in two and sent the hapless South Korean corvette down to Davy Jones’ locker. But they differed in two key aspects; one was the type of the mine used in the friendly-fire attack – limpet or rising – and the other was the nature of the friendly fire, deliberate or inadvertent.

These differences are probably due to Chinese-English translations, identification of the blast or analysis of the motivations behind the incident among Chinese experts.

The New America Media story identified the mine as a rising mine for shallow water operations, calling its launch “an inadvertent release” of a torpedo-firing mine. Rising mines lie on or under the sea floor and are equipped with acoustic sensors so it can rise and explode if a ship or submarine passes within range.

The Chinese term for a torpedo-mine is a “rising mine” and “rocket mine” and the American “captor mine” (MK60 Captor or encapsulated torpedo for deep-water operations) and “mobile mine” (MK67 for shallow water use).

The NAM article did not see any political purpose in the friendly fire but stressed that “any attempt to falsify evidence and engage in a media cover-up for political purposes constitutes tampering, fraud, perjury and possibly treason”.

In striking contrast, the Madsen Report version classified the culprit as a limpet mine, as the name suggests attached to a target by magnets, and defined the friendly fire as “a covert program” deliberately intended to be “a false-flag attack designed to appear as coming from North Korea”.

The MS report made a stunning revelation: “A [US Navy] SEALS diver attached a magnetic mine to the Cheonan, as part of a covert program aimed at influencing public opinion in South Korea, Japan and China.”

The Yomiuri Shimbun reported on May 30 that a morning phone call from US President Barack Obama two days earlier had induced the reluctant Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, who resigned on Wednesday, to keep US Marine Corps air bases in Okinawa and dismiss Mizuho Fukushima, the Social Democratic Party leader, from a cabinet post.

The MS report made the following observation:

One of the main purposes for increasing tensions on the Korean Peninsula was to apply pressure on Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama to reverse course on moving the US Marine Corps base off Okinawa. Hatoyama has admitted that the tensions over the sinking of the Cheonan played a large part in his decision to allow the US Marines to remain on Okinawa. Hatoyama’s decision has resulted in a split in the ruling center-left coalition government, a development welcome in Washington, with Mizuho Fukushima, the Social Democratic Party, leader threatening to bolt the coalition over the Okinawa reversal.

The MS report wrote: “Beijing, satisfied with North Korea’s Kim Jong-il’s claim of innocence after a hurried train trip from Pyongyang to Beijing, suspects the US Navy’s role in the Cheonan’s sinking, with particular suspicion on the role of the [USNS] Salvor.”

The two American stories wrote that Chinese naval intelligence based their suspicions on the following facts:

Fact One: Baengnyeong Island hosts a Secret Joint US-South Korean Naval Base for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) operations. Absent civilian traffic around it, “the noiseless conditions are near-perfect for picking up the slightest agitation, for example from a torpedo and any submarine that might fire it”. The joint US-South Korean naval base is staffed by American and South Korean naval special operation force personnel.

Fact Two: An Aegis ship-led US flotilla was operating in the South Korean waters in question at the time of the sinking of the South Korean warship.

Fact Three: The US flotilla included a mine-laying USNS Savor, stationed close to Baengnyeong Island.

Contrary to the belief that the ship was under the command of the Seventh Fleet, the NAM story noted that the USNS Salvor was “controlled by the innocuous-sounding Military Sealift Command and is closely connected with the Office of Naval Intelligence since their duties include secret operations such as retrieving weapons from sunken foreign ships, scouting harbor channels and laying mines, as when the Salvor trained Royal Thai Marine divers in mine-laying in the Gulf of Thailand in 2006, for example.”

Fact Four: The US Navy SEALs “maintains a sampling of European torpedoes for sake of plausible deniability for false-flag attacks. Also, Berlin does not sell torpedoes to North Korea, however, Germany does maintain a close joint submarine and submarine weapons development program with Israel.”

Chinese findings carry clout

The Chinese findings goes a long way to explaining why Obama made an April 1 phone call to offer South Korean President Lee Myung-bak the privilege of hosting in Seoul in 2012 a second of the then nuclear summit to be held in Washington April 12. (See See Pyongyang sees a US role in Cheonan sinking, Asia Times Online, May 5).

The offer was aimed at appeasing the embarrassed South Korean premier into covering up the truth of the US friendly fire sinking of the corvette, in a bid to prevent a tsunami-like nationwide eruption of anti-American sentiments and the resulting massive opposition to the US bases in South Korea and Japan.

South Korea is in no way fit to host such a a nuclear summit. Any one of the nuclear powers such as Russia, China, the United Kingdom and France should have been invited to host this dialogue’s second event.

The Chinese findings illustrate once again that two presidents, Obama and Lee, have no care for human lives and show that Lee wept crocodile tears over the death of his fellow countrymen sailors, using their loss to become a “a favorite man of Obama” in the words of US Vice President Joseph Biden.

The Chinese findings also explain why US Forces Korea Commander General Walter Sharp unexpectedly attended the April 3 funeral of a South Korean rescue diver, Han Ju Ho, who died while participating in the search for missing sailors from the corvette. Sharp was seen consoling the bereaved family in an unprecedented expression of sympathy.

Han Ju Ho was called a legendary veteran member of the South Korean underwater demolition team that took part in the covert ASW program of the joint US-South Korean base on Baengnyeong Island.

Now it is obvious why the US envoy in Seoul, Kathleen Stephens, and Sharp went out of their way on April 7 to fly to a South Korean amphibious landing ship to have a look at search and rescue operations for the sunken corvette.

The two pledged total support to the rescue operations, but as it turned out, the Americans showed how little the lives of South Korean soldiers matter to the US. South Korean troops are useful to the Americans as their cannon fodder, nothing more and nothing less.

The pro-American conservative South Korean daily Chosun Ilbo on April 1 wondered why the US SEALs aboard the USNS Savor did not join the South Koreans in the search and rescue operation as of March 31.

The daily expressed what it termed as “speechless” dismay at the refusal to dive by US SEALs who cited fast currents, low underwater temperatures, and deep waters, while the South Korean rescue team was left to struggle alone all the day against heavy odds.

The Los Angeles Times reported from Seoul May 28 on the South Korean public skepticism to the May 20 final forensic report on the sinking of the corvette: Younger South Koreans “see the Cheonan incident in less threatening terms. They contend that for all its bluster, North Korea is not an existential threat to their country. And they are suspicious of the motives of a conservative government they regard as descendants of the military regimes that ruled South Korea before it became a democracy in the 1980s.”

“The government is lying,” a 17-year-old high school student, Kim Da-yeon told the newspaper, wearing a Beatles T-shirt over her plaid school uniform, as her friends nodded with enthusiasm.

“The girls had stumbled on the demonstration in front of City Hall on a day off from school and picked Korean flags, but they said in unison that they didn’t agree with the anti-North Korean sentiment. “The North Koreans are our friends, our family,” they said, according to the newspaper report. “We don’t want to fight them.”

South Korea in the line of friendly fire

By Kim Myong Chol
May 26, 2010

[Editor’s note: North Korean leader Kim Jong-il has ordered his million-strong armed forces to “combat readiness”, according to a broadcast by the North Korean military. On Monday, South Korea announced it was suspending almost all trade links with North Korea in retaliation for the torpedoing of its warship Cheonan with the loss of 46 lives. The South has also banned all North Korean shipping from its waters and vowed to resume sensitive propaganda broadcasts across the Demilitarized Zone that were suspended in 2004.

“We do not hope for war but if South Korea, with the US and Japan on its back, tries to attack us, Kim Jong-il has ordered us to finish the task of unification left undone during the … (Korean) war (in 1953),” the military broadcast said.]

The South Korea-led multinational investigation team of the March

26 night sinking of the South Korean corvette Cheonan held a news conference in Seoul on May 20 to unveil its finalized forensic report with false findings pointing a finger at North Korea.

The report has all the hallmarks of rushing to invoke an all-too-familiar North Korean bogeyman in a bid to cover up the US role in a friendly fire incident.

The May 20 report is the only visible part of the iceberg-like “proof” that the South Korean people and the world public have all been lied to.

It is safe to state that the May 20 presentation is another lie of the century, as was the February 5, 2003, speech by the then-US secretary of state Colin Powell at the United Nations.

As the Powell speech paved the way for the invasion of Iraq by the US-led “coalition of the willing”, the May 20 report carries strong risks of trading charges quickly escalating into a nuclear war between two nuclear powers, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the United States.

CBS News reported on May 19 a significant Iraq War-like split among multi-national investigators: “The US, Britain and Australia – all of which helped in the investigation – are all prepared to back up the findings. Only Sweden, which also sent investigators, is a reluctant partner in blaming the North Koreans.”

The US, the United Kingdom and Australia were members of the “coalition of the willing”, whereas Sweden deeply opposed the invasion of Iraq. A major producer of AIP submarines, Sweden has vast expertise on shallow-water submarine warfare.

The Financial Times reported on May 19 on the skeptical reaction of the South Korean people:

Nevertheless, despite what appears to be the bloodiest North Korean attack for more than two decades, there has been no outpouring of public rage against Pyongyang. The loss of the warship has also exposed South Koreans’ mistrust of whatever the government says and a historic sense of fraternity with the North, feelings that can override strategic dangers.

The government seems to be hiding something. If not, why did it take so long to announce the conclusion?’ said Bae Sung-hoon, a 37-year-old office worker. Many ordinary South Koreans say that their government is merely seeking a convenient scapegoat for what was a mistake on the part of the South’s navy, or what was a “friendly fire” incident involving the US military.

A South Korean sister paper of the Washington Times, Segye Ilbo, on March 29 quoted a military source as saying: “The radar of the CIC on the corvette Cheonan is capable of easily detecting any torpedo within any radius of 20-30 kilometers but on that fateful day it detected no sign of a torpedo attack or naval firing by North Korea.

Japan’s conservative mass circulation daily Yomiuri Shimbun on March 21 quoted South Korean security experts as commenting, “Material evidence does not directly tally with the act of firing a torpedo. Absent is a perfect demonstration of the presence of a North Korean submarine and its launch of a torpedo. North Korea will likely counter-argue that South Koreans acquired a North Korean torpedo in a third country and launched it.”

Too clumsy to be a compelling case

The discovery of a given suspect’s weapon at the scene of crime does not establish his or her guilt because it could have been deliberately placed there by the true culprit to impute responsibility.

To establish the culpability of a suspect it is essential to satisfy at least three requirements. The first is demonstration of his or her presence at the time of the crime; corroboration of his or her actual use of the deadly weapon in question in perpetrating the crime; determination of how and why the suspect was able to get away.

As the three salient facts indicate, the final findings and accompanying pieces of evidence are so crudely crafted that they neither place North Korea at the scene of the tragedy nor establish North Korea’s guilt. The reason is obvious: the Americans and the South Koreans failed to study Perry Mason and Sherlock Holmes.

Firstly, the multi-national investigation did four things:

It identified that the cause of the sinking of the South Korean ship was a torpedo.
It disclosed that a few small North Korean submarines were out of their home port a couple of days before and after the ship disaster.
It produced fragments of what was purported to be a torpedo with markings in Korean scrip retrieved from the seabed.
It speculated that the torpedo was fired by a North Korean submarine.

The investigation team did not prove at all the presence of a North Korean submarine at the scene of the sinking at the time of one of the world’s greatest military exercises, as illustrated by telltale failures:

Failure to identify the name of a suspect small, primitive museum piece-like North Korean submarine and the names of its crew. A Toyota vehicle abandoned at the scene of a terrorist attack does not mean that either Japan or Toyota Motor Corporation was responsible for the action.

Failure to discuss the manner in which the suspected slow-moving North Korean submarine managed to penetrate South Korean waters, operate in shallow waters (depth of less than 30 meters) without being detected by the state-of-art radar and sonar-mounted US and South Korean ships and get away scot-free after the corvette sank in an explosion with a column of water so high (about 100 meters), so flashy and so noisy that a sentry on the shore of the Island of Baekryon witnessed it.

Failure to cite one of the world’s greatest war games that was going on at the scene. Yonhap reported on March 26 from Pyongtaek City on the west coast of South Korea that “The Foal/Eagle US-South Korean joint exercise is currently underway in the West Sea as US Aegis ships arrived May 25 at the Pyongtaek Naval Base where the Second Fleet is headquartered”.

Failure to discuss the presence in the war games on the fateful March 26 night of four Aegis ships, the USS Shiloh (CG-67), a 9,600-ton Ticonderoga class cruiser, the USS Curtis Wilbur (DDG-54), a 6,800-ton Arleigh Burke class guided-missile destroyer, the USS Lassen, a 9,200-ton Arleigh Burke class guided-missile destroyer and Sejong the Great, a 8,500-ton South Korean guided-missile destroyer, most probably supported by US nuclear and South Korean German Type 209 and 212 AIP submarines.

Failure to refer to the German explosives found at the wreckage of the corvette despite an initial announcement. The Korea Times reported on May 7, “The multinational investigation team is also closely looking into the possibility that a North Korean submarine fired a German-made torpedo used both by the South Korean and American navies in an attempt to dodge its responsibility.”

The Blue House (presidential house) was dismayed at the multinational investigators’ May 7 announcement that they had detected German RDX in the wreckage and pressured the Defense Ministry not to accept the findings, as Yonhap reported two days later.

Failure to explain the failure to find and retrieve two harpoon anti-ship missiles and a torpedo tube lost when the corvette sank, while succeeding in recovering the motor and propeller of the spent torpedo.

The investigation team produced what it termed “conclusive evidence”: the eye-catching hand-written Korean markings “ilbon” or “No 1” in English found on the propulsion section of the used torpedo allegedly recovered from the sea bed.

This turns out to be most inconclusive and counter-productive, calling into serious question the credibility of the findings. The use of “ilbon” in Korean script – not in Chinese characters – may look like North Korean writing, which is distinctly different from what is written in South Korea.

But native North Koreans use “ilho” for the English “No 1”. “Ilbon” is what South Koreans would use, although North Korean street addresses more often than often not do contain numerals like “ilbon”.

A likely theory for this blunder is the sense on the part of the investigators that there was an absence of hard evidence to impress a skeptical South Korean and world audience.

Disaster overrides key US policy objectives

A key policy objective of United States President Barack Obama and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak is to bring North Korea back to the six-party talks to persuade it to give up its nuclear arsenal and prevent it from exporting weapons.

They should be well informed that the May 20 forensic report carries four serious risks in its fallout.

Risk No1: The most effective high-profile global cost-free advertisement of the high performance of inexpensive weapons produced in North Korea.

The Yomiuri Shimbun on March 21 commented: “Weapons experts observe, ‘North Korean torpedoes are not less reliable than those deployed by Western countries.’ For North Korea, which earns foreign currency by exporting weapons, the sinking of the corvette is a good opportunity to demonstrate the performance of its domestically produced torpedoes, increasing their value as an export item.”

According to the SIPRI Yearbook 2005 (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute), North Korea exported 3,250 anti-tank missiles and 1,250 surface-to-air missiles(SAMs) to Russia between 1992 and 2005, and 45 Scud-C missiles (range 500km) to Yemen between 2001 and 2002.

Risk No 2: Embarrassing proof that the much-touted expensive and sophisticated US military hardware is a white elephant and that the US offer of a security guarantee to South Korea does not make any sense.

The world knows that air and sea supremacy and the presence of high-tech weapons are useless against small rag-tag insurgent forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. Their one-dollar improvised explosive devices play havoc with eight-wheel armored combat vehicles, high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicles (Humvees) and mine resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles.

The net outcome will be reduced international demand for American weapons.

Risk No 3: Gone once and for all is the only small opportunity for North Korea to agree to return to the table for nuclear talks and renounce its nuclear arsenal.

Risk No 4: A sharpening of tensions on the Korean Peninsula has brought about a very explosive situation in which an armed clash may ignite hot war at any moment. The US is fighting two wars, in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Obama administration appears to be opting for another war.

The Korean People’s Army has been put on combat readiness. Supreme Commander Kim Jong-il is one click away from turning Seoul, Tokyo and New York into a sea of fire with a fleet of nuclear-tipped North Korean intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Why have the two presidents put on the back burner their shared top policy priority objectives? What consideration has overridden them?

The answer is the urgent need to keep secret from the public that the tragic sinking of the corvette was a result of inadvertent friendly fire by a US nuclear submarine or an Aegis ship or any other naval ship. (See Pyongyang sees US role in Cheonan sinking Asia Times Online, May 5, 2010.)

Public knowledge of US friendly fire would generate a destructive bubble-jet effect of launching waves of anti-Americanism and attendant objections to US bases in South Korea, Japan and the rest of Asia, landing Obama and Lee in trouble. The latter would see his ruling party soundly defeated in June’s nationwide gubernatorial and municipal elections.

There is no other plausible explanation.

Kim Myong Chol is author of a number of books and papers in Korean, Japanese and English on North Korea, including Kim Jong-il’s Strategy for Reunification. He has a PhD from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s Academy of Social Sciences and is often called an “unofficial” spokesman of Kim Jong-il and North Korea.

False flags involving attacks on ships – prelude to war

It seems that it is too much of a coincidence that ship-related incidents have occurred before the USA entered into hostilities with other nations.

There was the USS Liberty false flag in which Israel planes and gun boats disguised as Arab attackers strafed, bombed and torpedoed the USS Liberty, an intelligence-gathering ship sailing off the Egyptian Coast.

Below is a pro-Israel lobbyist talking about setting up Iran so that the US could go to war with that nation.

Pro-Israel lobbyist suggests doing a false flag so that the US could go to war with Iran

VIDEO: Manufacture a false flag Dailymotion

Transcript:

“I pretty think that crisis initiation is really tough. And it’s very hard for me to see how the United States president can get us to a war with Iran. Which leads me to conclude that if in fact compromise is not company that the traditional way that America gets to war is what would be best for US’s interests.

Some people might think that Mr Roosevelt wanted to get us into WW2 as David mentioned. You may recall, we had to wait for Pearl Harbor.

Some people might think Mr Wilson wanted us to get into World War 1. You may recall we had to wait for the Lusitania episode.

Some people might think that Mr Johnson wanted to send troops to Vietnam, and you may recall we had to wait for the Gulf of Tonkin episode. We didn’t go to war with Spain until the USS Maine exploded.

And may I point out that Mr Lincoln did not feel he could call out the Federal Army until Fort Sumter was attacked which was why he ordered the commander of Fort Sumter to do exactly that thing in which the south Carolina incident said would cause an attack.

So if in fact the Iranians aren’t going to compromise, it would be best if somebody else started the war.

One can combine other means of pressure with sanctions. I mentioned that explosion on August 17th. We could step up the pressure. I mean, look people, Iranian submarines periodically go down. Some day one of them might not come up. Who would know why? We can do a variety of things if we wish to to increase the pressure.

I’m not advocating that, but I’m just suggesting that this is not an “either or” proposition. Just the sanctions has to succeed or other things. We are in the game of using covert means against the Iranians. We could get master of that.”

More ship false flags are discussed here.

Pizzagate and Zionist Pedophile Rings

INTRODUCTION

I believe there is a TRUE #pizzagate and there is a fake #pizzagate. The fake #pizzagate is an attempt by Zionists to cover up the pedophile activities by Zionists and impose censorship on the American people in order to hide past and FUTURE crimes of the Zionists, including pedophile rings run by Israel’s Mossad that blackmail US politicians. It was also a campaign to discredit Clinton, Podesta and the Democrats in general. It could also have been used to distract people from the claims of under-age rape made by Katie Johnson against Trump.

The Pizzagate conspiracy seems to have been orchestrated by Mossad. Wikileaks is the source of leaks of emails that kicked off the Pizzagate conspiracy. The conspiracy was fueled by Stratfor operatives, who sent emails that were deliberately meant to cause suspicion that there was a pedophilia conspiracy going on among prominent Democrats.

The “hush crimes” legislation will lay the groundwork for the next false flag attack on America, the “North Korean and Iranian” nuclear false flag, which will kickstart the American war on North Korea and Iran.

ZIONIST RUSSIAN PEDOPHILES ALLEGEDLY MURDERED INFANTS

News report from The Guardian

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2000/sep/29/philipwillan

Paedophile videos stun Italians


Italian police have discovered a massive international paedophile network selling violent child-pornography videos to clients in Italy, the US and Germany.

Eight Italians have been arrested and 490 warned that they are under investigation, in a scandal that has shocked and outraged the country. Police are reportedly trying to identify 5,000 people who are suspected of attempting to purchase the videos, some of which appear to contain images of children being tortured and murdered.

The tapes, which were made in Russia, have allegedly generated revenues of £410m for their makers.

The directors of two state-run television news programmes resigned yesterday after brief excerpts of the paedophile videos were broadcast on Wednesday to illustrate reports. The images were apparently taken from internet sites promoting the pornographic films, which cost anything from £270 to £4,000.

Gad Lerner, the respected director of the main RAI One news programme, interrupted his broadcast to apologise to viewers for the “ignoble” and “violent” images that had been shown only minutes earlier.

Mr Lerner and his RAI Tre counterpart, Nino Rizzo Nervo, admitted that they did not know what was going to be on the reports.

Italian investigators have identified three Russians who are suspected of being at the heart of the traffic in violent films, which are promoted over the internet and distributed on video cassettes, CDs and DVDs.

One of them, Dimitri Ivanov, has reportedly been in prison since September 1999, charged with violence against minors and the distribution of pornographic material. The other two, Dimitri Kuznetsov and Andrei Minaev, are said to have benefited from an amnesty passed by the Russian parliament.

The investigation began two years ago following a denunciation by a parish priest from the Sicilian town of Avola, who runs a helpline for abused children. He found evidence of the traffic on the internet.

Italian police identified the internet site that promoted the videos and intercepted 3,000 cassettes before they reached purchasers in Italy.

The investigators named the Russian firms involved in the trade as Tim-O-Seev Video and Flower 2. Many of the tapes were duplicated and delivered to buyers by police who posed as postmen. Those arrested include businessmen and public employees.

Exposure to the images has been a traumatic experience for police and magistrates. Alfredo Ormanni, the prosecutor in Torre Annunziata, near Naples, who is coordinating the inquiry, said they induced such a sense of desperation that he had been tempted to abandon his profession.

“For some time it has been possible to buy the sound files of rapes and every time that we discover one and report it to the police the screams of those children remain in my brain for days, and I blame myself for not being able to save them,” said Father Fortunato Di Noto, whose denunciation began the investigation.

Investigators said they believed that the victims shown in the films were kidnapped from orphanages in Russia and the Middle East. Some are said to have been snatched from their parents during visits to the circus.

CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS TWO WERE RAPED AND TORTURED UNTIL THEY DIED BY ALLEGED ZIONISTS

London, Sunday, 01.10.2000

Special Investigation: British link to ‘snuff’ videos

Jason Burke in London, Amelia Gentleman in Moscow, Philip Willan in Rome

Observer – Sunday October 1, 2000

Britain is a key link in the biggest ever international investigation into the production and supply of paedophile ‘snuff’ movies – in which children are murdered on film – an Observer investigation can reveal.

The key suspect in the inquiry, a Russian who was arrested last week in Moscow for distribution of thousands of sadistic child porn videos and pictures, was traced following the seizure of his products from British paedophiles.

Dmitri Vladimirovich Kuznetsov, a 30-year-old former car mechanic in Moscow, was identified after British Customs and police traced the origin of violent child porn videos found in the UK back to Russia.

Last week Italian police seized 3,000 of Kuznetsov’s videos on their way to clients in Italy, sparking an international hunt for paedophiles who have bought his products. The Italian investigators say the material includes footage of children dying during abuse. Prosecutors in Naples are considering charging those who have bought the videos with complicity in murder. They say some may have specifically requested films of killings.

British authorities yesterday confirmed that scores of Kuznetsov’s videos, produced in his small flat in Moscow’s rundown Vykhino district, have been found in the UK. They are concerned that ‘snuff’ movies in which children are killed may have also been imported.

Around a dozen British men have already been arrested and charged with offences alleged to be connected to the Russian tapes. A second Russian child porn ring, which allegedly had a British distributor, was broken up earlier this year. The investigation into the importing of violent Russian child porn which led to the identification and subsequent imprisonment of Kuznetsov started about 15 months ago after Customs seized material coming into the country. Since then there have been dozens of other finds.

‘We have seen some very, very nasty stuff involving sadistic abuse of very young children, but actual deaths on film takes it a whole step further. That is very worrying,’ said one senior customs officer this weekend.

British paedophiles were paying between £50 and £100 for Kuznetsov’s tapes, the officer said. Further fees were paid for access to a website that features pictures of extremely violent abuse.

Though two men arrested with Kuznetsov have also been imprisoned by Moscow authorities, only one of the three remains behind bars. Dmitri Ivanov was sentenced to 11 years for actually participating in the abuse that was being filmed. The others were released under an amnesty aimed at clearing Russia’s overcrowded prisons.

When officers from the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department raided Kuznetsov’s flat they found two boys in a makeshift studio. They seized a huge quantity of films and other pornographic material as well as lists of clients in Italy, Germany, America and Britain.

Last week Italian detectives moved in, following months of inquiries, and arrested eight people. The police searched more than 600 homes and say they now have evidence against about 500 people. Among the suspects were businessmen, public employees and a university student. Several of them were married, with children of their own. Hundreds of people are also under investigation in Germany.

The Russian videos, which had been ordered over the internet, were intercepted when they came into Italy by post, repackaged and then delivered by undercover police officers. They cost between £300 and £4,000, depending on what type of film was ordered.

Covert film of young children naked or undressing was known as a ‘SNIPE’ video. The most appalling category was code-named ‘Necros Pedo’ in which children were raped and tortured until they died.

Police in Russia and the UK believe that Kuznetsov and his associates have been in business for more than two years in which time they are believed to have recruited around 100 boys – aged between nine and 15 – to be filmed.

‘Most of the children were rounded up from railway stations. A lot of them came from the suburbs, or surrounding regions and were from deprived, problem families,’ said Kiril Mazurin, a police spokesman.

‘Usually when children like this arrive in the capital, they’ve got no idea where to go and hang around in the station. It’s very easy to entice this kind of teenager – with a promise of a warm bed or a trip to the cinema.’

Many were lured away from orphanages. ‘Children are not locked in,’ said Mazurin. ‘Anyone can come along and promise them a meal at McDonalds. It doesn’t take any more than that.”

Some children were paid a commission to find other boys willing to be filmed, according to reports in the Russian press, for a fee of between 100 and 300 roubles (£2.50 – £7).

Kuznetsov had given up his job in 1998 to devote himself to the lucrative pornography industry. A self-taught computer expert, he was in the process of upgrading his equipment to allow him to e-mail videos directly to clients when police raided him.

Many customers repeatedly ordered videos from him. The Naples newspaper Il Mattino published a transcript of an alleged email exchange between a prospective client and the Russian vendors.

‘Promise me you’re not ripping me off,’ says the Italian.

‘Relax, I can assure you this one really dies,’ the Russian responds.

‘The last time I paid and I didn’t get what I wanted.’

‘What do you want?’

‘To see them die.’

Among the suspects were businessmen, public employees and a university student. Several of them were married, with children of their own. Hundreds of people are also under investigation in Germany.

The Russian videos, which had been ordered over the internet, were intercepted when they came into Italy by post, repackaged and then delivered by undercover police officers. They cost between £300 and £4,000, depending on what type of film was ordered.

Covert film of young children naked or undressing was known as a ‘SNIPE’ video. The most appalling category was code-named ‘Necros Pedo’ in which children were raped and tortured until they died.

Police in Russia and the UK believe that Kuznetsov and his associates have been in business for more than two years in which time they are believed to have recruited around 100 boys – aged between nine and 15 – to be filmed.

‘Most of the children were rounded up from railway stations. A lot of them came from the suburbs, or surrounding regions and were from deprived, problem families,’ said Kiril Mazurin, a police spokesman.

‘Usually when children like this arrive in the capital, they’ve got no idea where to go and hang around in the station. It’s very easy to entice this kind of teenager – with a promise of a warm bed or a trip to the cinema.’

Many were lured away from orphanages.’Children are not locked in,’ said Mazurin.’Anyone can come along and promise them a meal at McDonalds. It doesn’t take any more than that.”

Some children were paid a commission to find other boys willing to be filmed, according to reports in the Russian press, for a fee of between 100 and 300 roubles (£2,500 -£7,000).

Kuznetsov had given up his job in 1998 to devote himself to the lucrative pornography industry. A self-taught computer expert, he was in the process of upgrading his equipment to allow him to e-mail videos directly to clients when police raided him. Many customers repeatedly ordered videos from him. The Naples newspaper Il Mattino published a transcript of an alleged email exchange between a prospective client and the Russian vendors.

‘Promise me you’re not ripping me off,’ says the Italian.

‘Relax, I can assure you this one really dies,’ the Russian responds.

‘The last time I paid and I didn’t get what I wanted.’

‘What do you want?’

‘To see them die.’

ITALIAN TV PRODUCERS LEAKED SNUFF FILMS ON PUBLIC TV AND WERE FIRED BY INFLUENTIAL ZIONISTS AND HIGHER-UPS

https://infiniteloveforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=73&t=2778

QUOTE:

By Candice Hughes Associated Press Writer Sept. 28 2000

ROME –– Top Italian television executives resigned Thursday after state TV aired graphic images in a prime-time news report on child pornography. The broadcasts, seen by nearly 11 million people, shocked Italy and ignited a political firestorm.

Yoram Ttorgeman who has been linked to the scandal

The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano criticized TV for worshipping a “cult” of sensational images and said the broadcasts had “violated Italian families” in the guise of news. “The images transmitted last night were not just an offense to viewers, but most of all to the children represented – twice victims, twice exploited, twice violated when they should have been protected,” it said.

An anchorman and two assistant news directors resigned Thursday, and two top news executives offered to follow suit. The case hit the news a day earlier, when police said they had broken up an online international child pornography ring, arrested eight Italians and three Russians and seized thousands of videos and photographs. The Russian run ring, which distributed an explicit catalog on the Internet, catered to clients in the United States, Italy and Germany.

Its inventory included films of children being tortured and killed.

State television’s RAI Tre station showed some of the photos and graphic snippets of video during the 7 p.m. newscast Wednesday, RAI Uno did the same an hour later, even though complaints had already started pouring in. By the end of the 30-minute broadcast, RAI Uno’s news director, Gad Lerner, was on the air apologizing for images “not only unwatchable but violent.” Called on the carpet Thursday, Lerner and his RAI Tre counterpart Nino Rizzo Nervo both admitted they didn’t know what was going to be on the broadcasts.

The uproar threatened to overshadow the horror over the pedophilia case itself.

Investigators say the pornography ring produces and distributes images showing children as young as 2 years old being sexually abused. Some of the victims were reportedly stolen from orphanages; others from families.

Its catalog offers films of killings for about $20,000 and images of people having sex with children for half that. Images of children being kidnapped are relatively cheap at less than $200.

RAI Uno’s broadcast showed pages from the catalog and a video of a man apparently having sex with a little girl. The attacks on RAI came from both the left and the right. The communist newspaper Liberazione ran indignant letters from viewers on the front page. In parliament, the center-right opposition scolded RAI and demanded Lerner and Rizzo Nervo’s resignations be accepted.

Never prudish, Italian TV has grown increasingly daring about sex and violence. The Italian version of “Big Brother,” for example, routinely shows nudity and sex. Aldo Grasso, one of Italy’s most respected television critics, said the RAI broadcasts were “symptomatic of what has been happening in Italian TV, both state and private, over the last couple of years.”

“Editors are driven not by quality or responsibility toward viewers but only the ratings,” he told The Associated Press. “Disturbing and violent images intrude in all kinds of programs, throughout the day. The UNICEF head in Italy, Giovanni Micali, also complained bitterly about rising violence. “It was an extreme case, but not the first and not the only one,” he said of the RAI newscasts.

Top government officials promised action. The justice minister said he was looking into how RAI got the material and the telecommunications minister said prosecutors were checking to see if RAI’s broadcast had violated the law.

Man Faces Child Pornography Charges / Russians say he was Web site’s best customer

By Henry K. Lee

Published 4:00 am, Friday, January 12, 2001

A Walnut Creek man described as having been the “best customer” of a Russian child-pornography Web site called the Blue Orchid has been charged in federal court in Oakland with buying $4,000 worth of illegal videos and CD- ROMs, records show.

Seth Bekenstein, 39, allegedly used the Internet to buy all of the Russian organization’s titles, which depicted underage boys engaged in sexual activity, according to records filed in U.S. District Court in Oakland.

Bekenstein was charged in a criminal complaint with receiving child pornography that was mailed or shipped in foreign commerce. He is scheduled to appear before U.S. Magistrate Wayne Brazil at a detention hearing today.

Bekenstein’s attorney, Ted Cassman of Emeryville, did not return a call for comment yesterday.

Bekenstein was arrested Jan. 4 after an investigation by Moscow police and the U.S. Customs Service linked him to purchases from the Blue Orchid Web site, which was shut down as a result of the probe, authorities said.

A search of Bekenstein’s Treat Boulevard apartment by customs agents and Contra Costa sheriff’s deputies uncovered 100 videotapes, 400 computer discs and numerous printed pictures depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit activity, U.S. Customs Special Agent Brian Kawabata wrote in an affidavit.

Russian police found Bekenstein’s credit-card information and a shipping- company receipt with a Moscow return address and Bekenstein’s address in Walnut Creek, Kawabata said in court papers.

Sergey Gromov, who acknowledged to having a “leadership role” in Blue Orchid, described Bekenstein to Moscow authorities as his onetime “best customer” and “most frequent purchaser of child pornography” because he had bought every title the group offered, records show.

Blue Orchid tapes were often concealed in professionally printed paper sleeves with the name, “National Geographic,” according to court papers.

One pornographic video, ostensibly titled as being a National Geographic documentary about pandas, opened with an image of a panda before leading to a depiction of “three underage boys engaged in sexually explicit activities,” Kawabata said.

Bekenstein allegedly received six shipments from Blue Orchid last year totaling $4,080 worth of child pornography, authorities said.

The suspect is believed to have resold pornographic material to other people, including a man named “Gary,” who paid $50 for two titles, authorities said.

Bekenstein also appeared to be reproducing videotapes and converting them into “computer movie file formats for distribution throughout the United States and abroad,” according to Kawabata.

Bekenstein was convicted in 1987 in New York on charges of sexual abuse and placed on three years’ probation, records show.

Seth Bekenstein’s connection to the Russian-Italian snuff ring

Quote:

Child Porn, Ecstasy, and Pardons

by Dr. William Pierce

Today we’ll take a look at what Bill Clinton did with his last few hours in the White House, but first I’d let to give you an update on some things we talked about in earlier broadcasts. In my broadcast of October 7, 2000, I told you about a child-pornography ring that kidnapped Russian children and then made videos of them being raped, sexually tortured, and killed. Wealthy perverts in the West buy these videos, paying as much as $20,000 for the videos in which a child actually is killed.
The pornographers had a temporary setback in October last year when Italian police raided the homes of some 600 Italian perverts who had been buying these videos. Nine of the importers and distributors of the child pornography in Italy were arrested, and two men in Russia involved in making the videos also were arrested. But there was no news coverage of the arrests, and none of the big shots in the Russian child-porn business were arrested: just two thugs actually involved in kidnapping, raping, and killing the children.

Then a couple of Italian television news reporters working for Italy’s largest TV network who had seen some of the videos seized by the Italian police were so outraged by what they saw that they broke the news blackout by broadcasting scenes from some of the videos on a prime-time television news program viewed by 11 million Italians. The Jewish boss of the news department of the government-owned television network, Gad Lerner, immediately fired the reporters who had violated the blackout. And there was absolutely no news at all about these events in the United States, even though many of the customers of this child-porn ring live in the United States.

It was the blackout of the news in America of the arrests in Italy that aroused my interest in this matter. Can you imagine anything more horrible than kidnapping White children, then raping, sexually torturing, and murdering them for the gratification of wealthy perverts who like to watch that sort of thing? Such activity can flourish only in the dark. If you drag it into the open the perverts will run for cover, like cockroaches in a dirty kitchen when the light is turned on suddenly during the night. And without the perverts buying the child-porn videos, there will be no child-porn business. If the perverts are afraid to buy child-porn videos, if they are afraid of being exposed, then Russian children will not be kidnapped, raped, tortured, and killed in front of video cameras, because there will no market for this filth, no money to be had for the Jews who run the business.

I’ll go over that again: It’s not just that the customers, the perverts who buy the child-porn videos, are as guilty as the pornographers who make the videos — it’s not just that the customers are paying for little White children to be kidnapped, raped, tortured, and murdered and therefore deserve to be punished at least as much as the people they pay to commit these crimes — it is also that if one drives away the customers, then one shuts down the business and saves the lives of White children. And the way to drive away the customers is exposure. Therefore, hardly anything more cries out for news coverage than the child-pornography business. And yet when this became especially relevant news because of the raids and arrests in Italy last October, there wasn’t a peep about it from the controlled news media in America.

That was no oversight. That was no accident on the part of the media bosses. There are more perverts in the United States buying child pornography than there are in Italy. Why protect them? Ordering, buying, receiving child pornography is not only a horrible and racially destructive thing, it also is illegal. Why don’t the controlled news media in America expose this business, expose the people involved, when something happens to make it even more immediately newsworthy?

Well, I answered that question for you in my October 7 broadcast, and I also answered it in later broadcasts. Part of the reason is that most of the people who buy this filth are homosexuals. Most of the Russian children who are raped and tortured for their gratification are little boys — although some little Russian girls also are victims, because there also are heterosexual pedophiles who buy child pornography. But homosexuals make up the majority of the paying customers, and the rule among the Jewish media bosses is that homosexuals are to be portrayed favorably whenever possible. If they can’t be portrayed favorably, then don’t portray them at all; kill the news.

A more important reason for keeping quiet about child pornography is that the people at the top of the business — not the ones who kidnap the children from public parks in Moscow and then rape them in front of the cameras, but the ones who organize the business and collect the profits — are Jews, and the Jewish media bosses in America know that. That’s why people like CBS boss Sumner Redstone and ABC boss Michael Eisner and CNN boss Gerald Levin protect the child pornography business by not exposing it, no matter how newsworthy it is.

I’ve told you that before, but something happened earlier this year that corroborates what I told you. A man described by Federal authorities as the U.S. West Coast distributor for a child-pornography ring operating in Moscow was arrested at his home in Walnut Creek, California, on January 4. His name is Seth Bekenstein. His brother, Joshua Bekenstein, immediately flew in from the East Coast and posted a $500,000 bond to get his brother out of jail. My guess is that the government will get to keep that bond, because when his trial date comes up Seth will be safely relocated in Israel.

The child-pornography ring in Moscow for which Seth Bekenstein works is the same child-pornography ring whose Italian distributors were arrested last October. It’s still in business today because the Jewish media bosses — Sumner Redstone, Michael Eisner, Gerald Levin, and the rest — refused to expose it in October. And they’re continuing to protect it today. You would think that the arrest of one of the major distributors of child pornography in the United States would merit a little news coverage, wouldn’t you? And yet there was almost a total blackout on the news of Seth Bekenstein’s arrest on January 4, of his bond hearing on January 12, and of his release from jail. You certainly heard nothing about it before I told you about it a minute ago, unless you live in the Walnut Creek, California, area where Bekenstein was arrested. The reason I know about it is that a listener who lives five miles from Walnut Creek, in Danville, California, sent me a copy of the January 13 issue of his local newspaper, the San Ramon Valley Times, which reported on the arrest and the bond hearing. As far as I am aware, the news appeared nowhere else. It didn’t appear in the largest newspaper in that area, the San Francisco Chronicle, for example. For more details you can contact the San Ramon Valley Times reporter who wrote the story. He is Brian Anderson, and his e-mail address is banderson2@cctimes.com.

18 months for man in child porn operation

By Brian Anderson
CONTRA COSTA TIMES
________________________________________

OAKLAND — A Walnut Creek man accused of being a major
distributor in a child pornography ring based in Russia was
sentenced Friday to 18 months in a federal prison.

Seth Bekenstein, 40, pleaded guilty last year to possessing and
trafficking in child pornography after U.S. Customs agents found
thousands of computer images and approximately 100 videotapes in
his Treat Boulevard apartment depicting children having sex.

U.S. District Court Judge D. Lowell Jensen sentenced Bekenstein
to serve two concurrent 18-month sentences and pay a $20,000
fine. Bekenstein could have received a prison sentence three
times that length.

Dressed in blue jail clothes, Bekenstein made no statement during
the hearing. His attorney, Matti Fromson, declined to comment, as
did prosecutor Miles Ehrlich.

Bekenstein was arrested Jan. 4, 2001, after an investigation of a
Web site operated by Russians in Moscow led authorities to Walnut
Creek. Under police questioning, one Russian suspect said
Bekenstein was their “best customer” because he had bought every
videotape title they sold, court records showed.

A federal prosecutor said Bekenstein was a major distributor of
child porn in the United States and overseas.

Two months later, Customs Service officials trumpeted the bust of
the Moscow-based Blue Orchid Web site, which peddled the
material. The joint investigation led to five arrests in Russia,
four in America and the issuance of 15 search warrants.

The worldwide sting, which later became known as Operation Blue
Orchid, began in May 2000 after Moscow police notified the U.S.
Customs attaché there of a Web site displaying child porn.

An investigation led police to arrest Vsevolod Solntsev-Elbe, who
admitted during police interviews that a 13-year-old boy with
whom he was apprehended was brought to the city for sex, Customs
officials said Monday.

A search of the man’s apartment turned up a contact list of about
50 American, European and other international customers, mailing
labels, and money transfer receipts in Bekenstein’s name, records
show.

Russia’s Jewish Mafia Organized Crime and Child Porn Scandal

New Jewish Child Porn Scandal In Europe

2360 Suspects Identified

2/7/2007

UNetnews

Moscow, Russia — Austrian authorities announced yesterday they had
infiltrated and exposed yet another child pornography ring being run
by Russia’s Jewish organized crime, and that two thousand three
hundred and sixty suspected customers of the ring had been
identified.

Six hundred American residents, four hundred German residents, and
one hundred French residents were among the suspected consumers of
the porn, whose ethnic affiliation was unclear.

The bust is only the latest exposure of Jewish-“Russian” organized
crime’s involvement in the child sex trade.

In 2001, US resident Seth Bekenstein, brother of Bain Capital
billionaire Josh Bekenstein, was arrested as the US contact in a
child porn ring emanating out of Russia that sold films of children
being raped and killed and also had branches in Italy and across
Europe. Five Jews in Russia were arrested in conjunction with the
sex ring, which is believed linked to the Mossad and to an
international Mossad operation to use homosexuals and children to
seduce politicians in various countries, including the US, and
blackmail them.

In this latest ring, Austrian authorities believe the Jews raped the
children involved in the porn in Russia, then transferred the files
to Jews in Britain, who then uploaded them to an Austrian file
sharing network.

SAN RAMON VALLEY TIMES – BROTHER POSTS BAIL IN PORN CASE

FEDERAL OFFICIALS SUSPECT A WALNUT CREEK MAN OF BEING A MAJOR DISTRIBUTOR OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY FROM RUSSIA

Section: news
Edition: Final
Page: A03 Brian Anderson

OAKLAND – A Walnut Creek man accused of being the “best customer” of Russian child pornography kingpins is now himself suspected of being a “major distributor” of illegal sexual materials, federal officials disclosed Friday.

As the investigation of Seth Bekenstein, 39, continues to evolve, authorities are diving deeper into the world of a man they believe trafficked in vast amounts of kiddie porn, said Elise Becker, an assistant U.S. attorney.

“At this time, we do actually think he is a major distributor both in the United States and abroad,” Becker told Magistrate Wayne Brazil during a bail hearing Friday in U.S. District Court in Oakland. “This has been his life for the past year.”

More than a week after Bekenstein was arrested, agents with the U.S. Customs Service continued Friday to pull computerized and printed pornography from his Treat Boulevard apartment.

Investigators tallying evidence in what they believe is an elaborate distribution scheme have confiscated nearly 700 CD-ROMs, about 100 printed pictures and 100 videotapes. Agents think hundreds of thousands of other images depicting children in various sex acts are stored in a hard drive and external computer files, Becker said.

She added that Bekenstein, who was released Friday afternoon on $500,000 bond his brother posted, continues to receive packages of suspected illegal porn at his apartment and at a post office box. Brazil authorized agents to intercept and inspect those mailings.

Josh Bekenstein, who traveled to Oakland from his home in Massachusetts, tried to beat back the prosecutor’s allegations that his brother was a serious flight risk and had access to what Becker said was an “unlimited amount of money.”

“I don’t think there is any evidence he would move out of the country,” Josh Bekenstein said, standing a foot or two away from his brother.

“I think there is extremely strong evidence that this community is important to him. I think our family is a very supportive family. And I think we want to get him the help he needs.”

Before signing papers that freed his brother, Josh Bekenstein explained that his brother had no individual access to a trust fund containing $300,000 set up when his mother died.

Josh Bekenstein declined to comment following the proceedings through his brother’s attorney, Cristina Arguedas.

Arguedas told Brazil the government’s case was overblown and that evidence will ultimately show that her client is not a major kiddie porn dealer.

“This is a man who, except for one year, has lived here for nine years,” Arguedas said. “To say he has ties to Russia and he could go live there is a bit of a stretch.”

Conditions of Seth Bekenstein’s release call for him to wear a monitoring device, not leave Alameda or Contra Costa counties, not use a computer, stay away from children and look for a job.

Bekenstein, who also suffers from depression and controlling impulses, also must continue taking prescribed medications and meeting with a therapist twice weekly, the judge ordered.

Agents arrested him Jan. 4 after an investigation of a Web site operated by Russians in Moscow led authorities to Walnut Creek. Under police questioning, one Russian suspect said Bekenstein was their “best customer” because he had bought every videotape title they sold, court records showed.

The foreign suspects are being prosecuted in their country, Becker said Friday.

HUSH CRIME: GANGSTERS RAPED, MURDERED CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS 2 ON FILM

Italian, Russian Police Break Up Child Snuff Porn Ring

Jewish Gangsters Raped, Killed Children As Young As 2 On Film

Mon Oct 9 17:26:22 2000

Rome, Italy — Italian and Russian police, working together, broke up a ring of Jewish gangsters who had been involved in the manufacture of child rape and snuff pornography.

Three Russian Jews and eight Italian Jews were arrested after police discovered they had been kidnapping non-Jewish children between the ages of two and five years old from Russian orphanages, raping the children, and then murdering them on film. Mostly non-Jewish customers, including 1700 nationwide, 600 in Italy, and and unknown number in the United States, paid as much as $20,000 per film to watch little children being raped and murdered.

Jewish officials in a major Italian news agency tried to cover the story up, but were circumvented by Italian news reporters, who broadcasts scenes from the films live at prime time on Italian television to more than 11 million Italian viewers. Jewish officials then fired the executives responsible, claiming they were spreading “blood libel.”

Throughout history, various groups have accused sects of Jews of ritually murdering small children. One such account, that of Hugh of Lincoln, led to the expulsion of all Jews from Britain in the 13th Century. Such accounts have generally been discounted, but are so wide spread that Jewish organizations have developed a name for them — “blood libel”.

The American group the ADL was founded to defend a Jew, Leo Frank, accused of raping and murdering a five year old girl, Mary Fagan, in his Atlanta pencil factory in 1913. The ADL claims he was innocent. A mob lynched him after the governor commuted his death sentence to life in prison.

Though AP and Reuters both ran stories on the episode, US media conglomerates refused to carry the story on television news, again saying the story would prejudice Americans against Jews.

Jewish gangsters in Russia have become increasingly linked to traffic in “white slaves” and prostitutes through Israel, according to a recent report in the Jerusalem Post. Israel turns an official blind eye to forced prostitution, and does not punish Israeli citizens who choose to own “sex slaves”, as long as the slaves are foreign and non-Jews.

Anti-Jewish organizations in the United States responded to the news today by calling for the mass murder of all Jews in Russia.

RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION: SNUFF PEDO RING NAMED “BLUE ORCHID”

http://www2.gwu.edu/~ieresgwu/assets/docs/demokratizatsiya%20archive/09-2_Stoecker.PDF

QUOTE:

“Physical and Virtual Movement of Minors

It is clear that the new technologies at our disposal, especially computers with Internet access, facilitate a variety of transnational crimen, particularly child exploitation, and give rise to new ways of thinking about human trafficking. No longer is the trafficking of persons related exclusively to the physical movement of persons across federal or international borders for illicit purposes and in pursuit of profit. We can also conceptualize the “virtual” trafficking of human images in cyberspace across numerous borders-even around the globe. In the case of child pornography, that is a heinous form of abuse and exploitation that is very difficult to contain and arrest.41 In the past, child pornography was distributed through the mail in the form of magazines and photographs. The source countries tended to be the Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Germany. Today pornographic images can be loaded from any country and transmitted across virtual borders instantaneously. Some of the key source countries are now Australia, Costa Rica, Russia, and the United States.

In a recent article, the head of U.S. Customs Cyber-smuggling Center stated that child pornography was “pretty much eradicated in the 1980s” but with the “advent of the Internet, it exploded”42 He noted that in the past, it was easier to investigate consumers of child pornography who used photo labs and overland mail. More than one-third of investigations into child pornography conducted by the United States postal service since 1997 have been successful in identifying child molesters-some of whom have criminal records.43 Today, the previously isolated pedophiles and child molesters have discovered communities of likethinkers on the Internet through chat rooms and Web cite sharing. Moreover, they can share in those “communities” while protecting the anonymity that is crucial to them.

There is also a combined form of the physical and virtual movement-the enticement of minors by child molesters for physical encounters while on-line. In the United States there have been many cases of children logged on to computer “chat rooms” who are lured into “virtual” relationships with child predators. These predators establish trust with the children and in many cases arrange physical encounters with them. According to research from the National Center on Missing and Exploited Children, one in five regular Internet users between the ages of ten and seventeen is sexually solicited each year, and one in thirty-three was a victim of “aggressive” solicitation whereby she/he was invited to meet the solictor at a given location or was sent packages or received telephone calls.44

Digital cameras also facilitate the movement of images to the Internet quickly and make it very easy to reproduce the images. Those industries have boomed with the proliferation of porn sites on the Internet and confront law enforcement in all countries with daunting challenges, especially where laws on child pornography are nonexistent. In the United States, President Clinton signed the Child Pornography Prevention Act in 1997, which adds a subsection to 18 U.S. Code 2256 that expands the definition of pornography to include visual depictions of sexually explicit conduct generated by computers. The law also set higher penalties for the production and distribution of child pornography.45

The transnational nature of these criminal schemes can be illustrated in the following examples. An American-Russian-Indonesian conspiracy was recently uncovered whereby pornographic images of children aged four to twelve produced in Russia and Indonesia were posted on Web sitos entitled Landslide.com and KeyZ.com. An American company based in Texas, Landslide Inc., provided credit card approval and an adult verification system for access lo the cites and collected most of the one million dollar profits.40 The investigation began in 1997 with a tip lo the Dallas police department and involved the cooperation of the U.S. Postal Service, Customs Service, FBI, and Department of Justice. The American owners of the company were arrested and issued an eighty-seven-count indictment. Prosecutors currently are seeking extradition of the Russian and Indonesian Web masters.

An Italian pornography ring was recently discovered by mirroring a Russian Web site permitting law enforcement lo untangle links back lo a person who registered the English language Web cite in Alabama. Gruesome reports of the discovery of a Russian-Italian pornography ring purportedly showing the torture and murder of children on its Web Bite for necropedophiles brought even greater gravity lo the issue of child exploitation and Internet abuse. The children exploited and killed were reportedly homeless and were lured or kidnapped from Russian orphanages, parks, and circuses.47

There have been a few successful investigations into child exploitation by U.S. customs agents and the Criminal Search Division (MUR) of the Moscow City police. 41 One of the cases involved a hardcore pedophile, Dmitri Kuznetsov, who ran a video salon that featured young boys ages five lo eighteen, posting his pornography on his Web Bite. Kuznetsov was caught selling child pornography lo undercover agents from U.S. customs, at which time customs in Moscow learned that MUR was also investigating Kuznetsov. The two agencies began lo work together and in February 2000, arrested Kuznetsov and his associates after searching his residence and finding more than 300 videotapes a.nd other documents. The investigation led lo many arrests and indictments in the United States, and links were established with many other countries, including Japan, Canada, Brazil, Hong Kong, and Australia. Unfortunately, Dmitri Kuznetsov was amnestied along with numerous other criminals by a State Duma resolution in conjunction with the fifty-fifth anniversary of the Victory of the Great Patriotic War last May.49 Despite protests by the General Procurator, Vladimir Ustinov, the Duma upheld its decision, and many disease-stricken criminals who had committed very serious (osobo tyazhkie) crimes, in addition to the “lesser” crime of “perverse acts” (razvratnye deistviya) committed by Kuznetsov, were released.(50) After a long and seemingly successful investigation and arrest, the amnesty of Kuznetsov was a major blow to MUR and customs agents who worked on the case.(51)

Another successful investigation by U.S. customs and MUR involved the Web site known as “Blue Orchid” and sex tourism. An American sex tourist, Glenn Martikean, traveled to Moscow in January 2001 to recruit young boys. Because his previous purchases of child pornography from Blue Orchid had been recorded, he already had been identified, and when he arrived in Moscow, an undercover MUR officer met him posing as a pimp. According to Eduard Lapatik, chief investigator, “As soon as we heard him say `please get undressed’ police burst in and took the boy out of the room.” When they learned that the boy was fourteen years old, they could not do anything about it, because in 1998 the age of consent for sex with minors was lowed by the Russian Duma from sixteen to fourteen. In the United States, however, a minor is still anyone under eighteen; therefore, Martikean was charged and indicted using American statutes on the distribution of pornography and sex tourism. Customs and MUR shared surveillance of the perpetrator and jointly conducted undercover operations; while he was in Moscow, customs agents had secured a search warrant to enter his home in the United States. Unbeknownst to Martikean, he was accompanied home to the United States by an undercover U.S. customs agent and on arrival was arrested. He now faces up to thirty years in prison.”

Repeat sex offender sentenced to 30 years in prison on child sex-tourism charge

If Kenneth Robert McVicker III had just another six months before his 2011 arrest, he probably would have outgrown his habit of molesting young boys on his own, the serial sex offender told a federal judge Tuesday in Portland.

“It comes with maturity,” he said to U.S. District Judge Michael Simon, noting that he is now 50 and that he felt something changing in him. “It just doesn’t seem right anymore.”

But McVicker’s extensive child-pornography library – traded internationally – helped lead authorities to him in the Ecuadoran village where he was living for a decade. Many of the 2,700 sexually explicit photos in his collection include images of the U.S. citizen abusing young boys who live in the village.

Simon sentenced McVicker to 30 years in prison for his plea on a child sex-tourism charge, accepting the sentence recommenced in a plea agreement. He will also face a lifetime of supervised release after his prison term ends.

McVicker has a long history of molesting young boys, prosecutors said, noting he has been convicted three times in the past for hands-on sexual offenses against boys in Maryland and served a 15-year prison term. In 1986, he said he did not believe there was anything wrong with pedophilia, prosecutors note, and that his fear of jail was the only motivation for changing his behavior.

After serving his sentence, McVicker moved to Ecuador, where he coached soccer, taught English and worked as an artist, according to government filings. A fellow child-pornographer had boasted that McVicker was well trusted and had easy access to young boys, the filings state.

The investigation began in December 2010 a few thousand miles away. Homeland Security Investigations agents searched the home of a Vancouver child-porn collector and trader who then agreed to cooperate. Agents assumed his online identity and started emailing the sender of a message that included information on accessing a child-pornography hard drive.

The sender, later identified as Seth Bekenstein, emailed hundreds of child-porn images, including photos taken by McVicker, to the agent. Bekenstein, a U.S. citizen living in Mexico, was then arrested when he visited Portland in February 2011. (Bekenstein was sentenced last December to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual exploitation of minors and transporting child pornography.)

Bekenstein then cooperated with authorities, allowing them to assume his online identity to email McVicker, the court filings state. McVicker sent Bekenstein links to several secure, encrypted files that included hundreds of images of child pornography that McVicker had produced in Ecuador, the government memorandum states.

With those images, a federal grand jury returned an indictment in March 2011 charging McVicker with transportation of child pornography. Authorities issued a warrant, and McVicker was arrested that month in Belize, where he had traveled to paint a mural at a local resort.

While in Belize, Homeland Security investigators interviewed McVicker, who admitted to sexually abusing several young boys in Ecuador, photographing the abuse and sending photos on to others. At least eight boys, as young as 5, were molested, according to the government filings.

In addition to the 2,700 images of the boys, investigators would later discover about 360,000 child-pornographic images and another 1,300 videos produced by others that McVicker collected, including images of sadism, masochism and bestiality.

Kelly Zusman, who prosecuted the case with fellow Assistant U.S. Attorney Gary Sussman, said the case sends a message to those like McVicker — that they cannot circumvent U.S. laws by traveling to other countries and sexually abusing children there.

“There’s no place they can go,” she said, without agents pursuing them.

At his sentencing, McVicker said he is “still confused and baffled” that he is in a U.S. court instead of being tried in Ecuador. Although he was born in the U.S., he was raised in Europe and has “never considered this my country.”

But he agreed to his plea and sentence, adding that he was “sorry for all of this.”

“I’m a sensitive person,” he said. “It saddens me that I’ve caused so much pain to a lot of people.”

Was Madeleine McCann a Victim of a Zionist Pedophile Ring?

Pedophile rings are well-organized and recruited compromised people in high positions in society who could perform cover-ups for the pedophile ring leaders. These people include police, judiciary and media owners. Portugal was a well-known haven for pedophilia. Many elite chose that as their vacation destination and second home for that very reason. Zionist Jewish pedophile gangs would have been well-aware that children were easy to obtain in Portugal.

Quote:

Pedophile Clement Freud lived 1/3 mile from Maddie McCann kidnapping

DAILYMAIL

Revealed: Police launch probe into what Clement Freud knew about Maddie as we uncover new details about ex-MP’s disturbing relationship with the McCanns

  • Another astonishing twist in case of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance
  • Freud befriended the McCanns in Praia da Luz, in the western Algarve
  • With laid-back security the area became a hive of paedophile activity
  • Freud invited McCanns around for lunch two months after disappearance

Every last, tenuous lead had been followed to its conclusion, every unlikely theory had been explored. Witnesses were re-examined, morsels of evidence painstakingly re-evaluated. Yet still there was nothing.

So, by the end of this summer, the last rites in Operation Grange — the Metropolitan Police’s five-year, £12 million investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann — were expected to have been played out.

Met chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe warned that the end was approaching in a radio interview two months ago. The team of detectives working on the case had been cut from more than 30 to two or three, he said, and when they had followed one remaining line of inquiry, the plug would have to be pulled.

This week, however, there has been yet another astonishing twist — one that has given the dying inquiry fresh impetus.

Police are investigating what Freud knew about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann

Last Wednesday, I can reveal, two detectives from Operation Grange were quietly dispatched to Somerset to pursue a new avenue of inquiry. They spent 90 minutes interviewing Vicky Haynes, the 64-year-old grandmother who, in a haunting Daily Mail interview last week, told how she had been sexually abused as a 14-year-old girl by the late broadcaster, humorist, politician and chef Sir Clement Freud.

For Mrs Haynes suspects that Freud — who owned a secluded villa in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz, a few hundred yards from the Ocean Club holiday complex from which Madeleine vanished in May 2007 — harboured crucial information about her fate.

And she fears that when the celebrated former Liberal MP died, aged 84, in 2009, he may have taken this grisly secret to his grave. Indeed, her son, Mason, told me he first emailed the Operation Grange team, to alert them to this disturbing suspicion, some three years ago, after they learned that Freud not only kept a holiday home in Praia da Luz, but that he invited Gerry and Kate McCann to lunch there, just two months after Madeleine went missing.

Mason is nobody’s fool nor a conspiracy theorist. This towering man is one of the world’s most respected close-protection guards.

Yet he says the Grange team either ignored or forgot about his message, and ‘apologetically’ retrieved it only this week after his mother told her story to the Mail.

‘When I heard about the connection between Clement Freud and the McCanns, a light-bulb was switched on in my head,’ he told me. ‘It makes no sense for a man we now know to have been a predatory paedophile to have invited them into his life, at that time, unless he had some ulterior motive.

madeleine.jpg

‘My theory is that if you live somewhere for 25 years [the length of time Freud owned his Algarve villa] as a paedophile, you become part of the paedophile ring that exists in that area. You share information and stories; that’s how it works.

‘I think the abduction was carried out by that ring, and Freud knew something about what happened to the child. Either he invited Madeleine’s parents to his house to get some sick turn-on out of their visit, or he was trying to get information about where the police had got to with the investigation.

‘It is well-known by psychologists that paedophiles like to go back to the scene of their crimes. Perhaps this was his way of doing it.

‘Freud was 83 at the time. I’m not suggesting he went to that flat and abducted Madeleine himself. But you never stop being a paedophile, no matter how old you are, and I think he knew something.’

With those words in mind, it is chilling to recall that Kate McCann once described a nightmare in which she dreamt Madeleine was buried on a hillside on the outskirts of Praia da Luz . . . close to Clement Freud’s villa.

Many years ago, before the rugged western tip of Portugal morphed into a package-holiday destination favoured by middle-class families such as the McCanns, it attracted a very different type of Briton.

With its donkey-paced ambience, rustic villas that were as ridiculously cheap as the delicious local wine and fish, and a relaxed moral code (described by one long-time expat as ‘anything goes, as long as nobody knows’), it was then a magnet for Bohemian celebrities and minor aristocrats.

Among those lured to this furthermost tip of the Continent was Freud, whose diverse talents — including being the hangdog face of the nation’s favourite pet-food commercial (juxtaposed with his lookalike bloodhound, Henry) — had made him a national treasure.

The father-of-five also wrote children’s books and became a fixture for a time on the much-loved after-school programme Jackanory.

Perhaps not coincidentally, he was a friend of the paedophile entertainer Rolf Harris, too, having given the Australian his entrée into the London club scene when he managed a West End nightspot. And after being elected as the maverick Liberal MP for the Isle of Ely, in 1973, he shared a Commons office with another serial child abuser, Cyril Smith.

Freud had homes in St John’s Wood and Suffolk. In 1987, after losing his parliamentary seat and acquiring a knighthood, he also bought a white-washed villa on the promontory overlooking Praia da Luz bay.

 This cliff was later one of the places where Kate and Gerry McCann went jogging to ease their angst as they waited for news of Madeleine.

Freud often chronicled his summer exploits in Praia da Luz in his weekly column for The Times; and given how he chose to befriend the McCanns, we might find these jottings quite pertinent.

While he waxed lyrical about his herb garden and citrus groves, which provided ingredients for his favourite Mediterranean recipes, and we learnt that he played golf and boules, he wrote little about the company he kept.

In fact, the only people he mentioned were his Portuguese ‘Maria’ — the maid who came each day to wash, clean and iron — and his secateurs-wielding gardener, Alfredo.

Was this perhaps because Freud didn’t want anyone to know about the dark company he kept?

After all, as the Madeleine inquiry revealed, the western Algarve, with its bucket-and-spade resorts, wide-open verandas and patios, and laid-back security, had become a teeming hive of paedophile activity.

fourthvictim.jpg  Now a FOURTH victim comes forward to say Clement Freud…

The names of paedophiles and suspected paedophiles based in Praia da Luz or nearby towns when Freud was a regular visitor are too many to mention. They include serial sex offender Raymond Hewlett, a Briton who was living on the Algarve with his wife and six children in May 2007, and became a prime suspect shortly before dying of throat cancer, aged 64, four years ago.

Another Briton, Chris Ridout, worked as a DJ in his parents’ pub, the Plough and Harrow, 200 yards from the Ocean Club. He was forced to flee the resort shortly before Madeleine disappeared, after he was alleged to be bombarding a 12-year-old local girl with lewd texts and indecent images. He is now thought to be living in the United States.

Ridout doesn’t have any convictions and says he was unfairly hounded after death threats.

Freud is said to have drunk on occasion in the Ridouts’ pub, which locals dubbed ‘The Plough and Paedo’ (daubing its new name in huge letters on the wall). Could it be that the knight of the realm was secretly consorting with loathsome men such as Hewlett?

clementfreud2.jpg

Freud befriended the McCanns in Praia da Luz, in the western Algarve

Of course, Mrs Haynes and the three other women who have come forward in recent days to describe being assaulted by Freud were far older than Madeleine when he forced himself on them, and paedophiles typically choose their victims from a narrow age bracket.

Yet, as one expert told me, they also tend to gravitate towards others who share their proclivities, regardless of the type of victims they prefer.

Freud retained the five-bedroom villa, Casa da Colina, with its shaded pool, sunken terrace and pastoral tiles, until 2002, when he sold it to the current owner, Andrew Wright.

However, Mr Wright, from Devon, who now rents the property for £2,470 a week in high season, continued to make it available to Freud until he died. Intriguingly, he revealed that he had been contacted by Operation Grange detectives ‘about two years ago’, when he confirmed ownership of the villa.

This could suggest the Met squad hadn’t completely ignored the email sent by Mason Haynes after all.

The case is also being reviewed by a fresh team of Portuguese police officers based in Porto, in the north of the country. Yesterday, a source in the unit said they would look into the possible involvement of Freud — who was not mentioned once in the original 11,000-page case file.

‘This person [Freud] was never under investigation during the case, not even under British formal request,’ said the source. ‘This new information will be considered in the review we are now undertaking.’

And so to Madeleine’s disappearance. What evidence is there to suggest Freud might have been involved, however tangentially?

Thus far, the Freud family’s only comment has come from his son Matthew, a high-powered PR. Between expletives, he told a Mail reporter his father had been in Britain on May 3, 2007, the night she was abducted from her bed as her parents ate a tapas supper with friends in a nearby restaurant.

His assertion appears to be supported by the fact that Freud’s horse-racing column for the Sun was published two days later, on May 5.

By early July he was once again installed in Praia da Luz. As Kate McCann recalls in her book, at the beginning of that month they received a cryptic letter at their lodgings near the Ocean Club.

rosemary.jpg

Rosemary Rimmer-Clay claimed she was attacked by Sir Clement Freud when she appeared on ITV News

‘Dear McCanns,’ it began. ‘I have a house in P da L, been ashamed of the intrusion into your lives by our media . . . and if you would care to come to lunch/dinner at any time before Wednesday next, do ring and let me know.’

Doubtless sure of his culinary renown, he signed off with a droll aside: ‘I cook decent meals.’ Ironically, however, Kate and Gerry could barely remember who he was, and had to be reminded. Even so, they were touched by Freud’s gesture of ‘kindness and friendship’ (it came at a time when the tide of public opinion was turning against them, and they were falling under the unwarranted suspicion of the Portuguese police) and duly accepted his invitation.

Yet this week, when I asked several key players in the McCann saga what they made of Freud’s decision to place himself at the centre of the circus surrounding Madeleine’s disappearance, they said they found it odd, to say the least.

For Freud was an obsessively private man who always kept himself apart from the English ex-pats in the resort, and he is not remembered for his neighbourly gestures.

Residents described him as ‘reclusive’ and ‘aloof’, but most could barely recall seeing him at all. Was this frigid man really so moved by the McCanns’ plight? Or, as Mason Haynes ponders, was his gesture motivated by sinister self-interest?

‘I’d like to know what he had to gain by the meeting,’ he said.

The McCanns attended the luncheon accompanied by Gerry’s sister, Trisha Cameron, and her husband Sandy, and their then PR adviser Justine McGuinness, a former Liberal-Democrat parliamentary candidate. Though McGuinness and Freud had a political affinity, I am assured that the pair had never previously met and she did not fix the meeting.

McCann watchers suggest, however, that some part might have been played by Clarence Mitchell, who briefly handled the couple’s PR before McGuinness and would become their mouthpiece after she quit the role.

This is because Mitchell entered into a consultancy contract with Matthew Freud’s company a few months later. From his office in Brighton this week, Mitchell insisted this was a coincidence.

As Kate describes colourfully in her book, the lunch was an odd affair. Freud’s opening gambit was to offer his guests shots of strawberry vodka, though it was only just midday. He then prepared them, as Kate recalled, a ‘bloody marvellous’ watercress salad followed by mushroom risotto — ‘the best we’ve ever tasted’ — and regaled them with his trademark wit.

It might easily be construed as an innocuous occasion — until we remember that Freud took pleasure in cooking an elaborate meal for at least one of his victims (for whom he prepared a gourmet omelette) before thrusting himself on her.

Shortly after the lunch, eaten alfresco on the terrace, Freud returned to Britain but remained in touch with the McCanns by email, as Kate recounts. The Operation Grange team will no doubt wish to examine these exchanges, which might with hindsight prove telling.

He returned to Portugal on August 31, whereupon — again weirdly, we might think — he phoned Gerry McCann. Freud cracked a lame joke which compared what he said was his ‘poor circulation’ to that of the ailing Daily Express.

A few days later, when Kate and Gerry were in turmoil after being made arguidos, or suspects, by the Portuguese police, Freud invited them to his home again; this time at 9.50pm. Greeting them in his nightshirt, he offered them brandy and made another dry quip.

‘So, Kate, which of the devout Catholic, alcoholic, depressed, nymphomaniac parts is correct?’ he inquired, referring to the plethora of newspaper stories speculating on her character and parlous sate of mind.

When the couple told Freud how sniffer dogs were supposed to have detected signs that someone had died in their apartment, he replied laconically: ‘So what are they going to do? Put them on the stand? One bark for yes, two for no?’

To Kate, who could have no idea about the kind of man they were consorting with, this was just the tonic she needed: Freud’s ‘way of making everything seem a little less terrible’.

According to Clarence Mitchell, she and her husband were ‘shocked and appalled’ when they learnt the truth about him a few days ago. Yet, on the basis of all they know so far, he says they ‘can see no reason to believe’ he may have had knowledge of Madeleine’s disappearance.

Those who remember Freud not as an avuncular shoulder to lean on but as a callous predator hold a different opinion. Now it is for the depleted Operation Grange squad to determine whether the clue they desperately need lies buried in the vile past of a great English eccentric.

Mossad sought information about DC clients from boy prostitution rings

“He described how male prostitutes between the ages of 13 and 16 were shuttled between the cities [Washington DC and New York], and were paid from $50 to $250, with younger boys commanding the most.”

BOY SEX RINGS SAID TO PEDDLE CLIENT DATA TO FOREIGN AGENTS

By The Associated Press

Published: July 27, 1982

Prostitution rings are providing young boys to male customers in Washington and are reportedly selling information about their clients’ sexual preferences to foreign intelligence services, a private investigator testified yesterday.

The investigator, Dale Smith, who works for the New York State Senate’s Select Committee on Crime, said he had learned that British, Israeli and Soviet agents had bought information from several call services in Washington.

Mr. Smith appeared before the committee at the opening in New York City of a two-day hearing on prostitution among young males and on pornography.

Mr. Smith said that an accountant for five call services had told him about the sale of information to foreign agents. He refused to elaborate on the allegations when questioned by reporters, but the committee counsel, Jeremiah McKenna, said that the information concerned ”government officials.” He declined to be more specific. Profit in Information

”They’re making more money selling information than on the prostitution itself,” Mr. McKenna said. Allegations of homosexual sex and drug use on Capitol Hill among Congressmen, pages and other employees have circulated in Washington recently.

Mr. Smith also said that ”call service operations in Washington have some connection with organized crime in New York.” He described how male prostitutes between the ages of 13 and 16 were shuttled between the cities, and were paid from $50 to $250, with younger boys commanding the most.

Earlier, a Washington detective testified that she had uncovered a six-city prostitution network that used 12-year-old boys and allowed customers to pay for sex with credit cards.

The cities involved are Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, New York, Washington and Houston, said the detective, Anne Fisher of the Washington Metropolitan Police.

”You could call a number in Houston from Washington and have a young boy brought to your room in Washington,” the detective said.

Israeli official discusses how to discredit UK MPs in undercover footage

An Israeli embassy official has been caught on camera in an undercover sting plotting to “take down” MPs regarded as hostile, including foreign office minister Sir Alan Duncan, an outspoken supporter of a Palestinian state.

In an extraordinary breach of diplomatic protocol, Shai Masot, who describes himself as an officer in the Israel Defence Forces and is serving as a senior political officer at the London embassy, was recorded by an ­undercover reporter from al-Jazeera’s investigative unit speaking about a number of British MPs.

The Israeli ambassador, Mark Regev, apologised to Duncan on Friday. An Israeli spokesman said Regev made clear that “the embassy considered the remarks completely ­unacceptable”.

The Israeli embassy said Masot “will be ending his term of employment with the embassy shortly”. Masot declined to comment or to elaborate on what he meant when he said he wanted to “take down” a number of MPs.

Masot had been speaking to Maria Strizzolo, a civil servant who was formerly an aide to another Conservative minister. Also present was a man they knew as Robin, whom they believed to be working for Labour Friends of Israel, a pressure group. In fact, Robin was an undercover reporter.

Strizzolo, discussing with Masot how to discredit MPs, said: “Well, you know, if you look hard enough, I’m sure that there is something that they’re trying to hide.” Later she added: “A little scandal, maybe.”

During the conversation, in October, Strizzolo boasted that she had helped to secure a promotion for her boss, the Conservative MP Robert Halfon. She had been his chief of staff when he was deputy chair of the Conservative party. Last year Halfon was appointed as an education minister and Strizzolo was appointed as a senior manager at the Skills Funding Agency. She continues to work part-time for Halfon.

In the footage, Masot agreed that Strizzolo had assisted Halfon and then asked whether she could also achieve the opposite effect. “Can I give you some MPs that I would suggest you would take down?” he asked. He went on to say that she knew which MPs he was referring to.

She asked him to remind her. “The deputy foreign minister,” he said. Strizzolo said: “You still want to go for it?” Masot’s reply is ambiguous but he said Duncan was still causing problems. Strizzolo asked: “I thought we had, you know, neutralised him just a little bit, no?” Masot answered: “No.”

Masot did not elaborate on what he meant by “take down”, but it is normally used as meaning to engineer a downfall, possibly through discrediting them in some way.

The conversation then turned to the foreign secretary, Boris Johnson. Strizzolo said he was solid on Israel. Masot agreed, adding that Johnson just did not care. “You know he is an idiot …” Masot said.

Strizzolo returned to the subject of Duncan later in the conversation, suggesting he had had a run-in with Halfon in the past and that Halfon had reported Duncan to the whips. So never say never, she added. Masot replied: “Never say never, yeah, but …” Strizzolo said: “A little scandal, maybe.”

Other prominent Conservatives named during the conversation include Crispin Blunt, chair of the Commons foreign affairs select committee, who is also a vocal supporter of the Palestinians.

Blunt said: “Whilst this apparent activity of a diplomat of a foreign state in the politics of the United Kingdom is formally outrageous and deserving of investigation, the real questions should be for the state of Israel itself. Israel’s future peace and security is not being served by ignoring the substantial peace lobby in both Israel and the world wide Jewish community and working to undermine those foreign politicians who share that perspective”

In another conversation, Masot agreed that Blunt was among MPs that were “strongly pro-Arab rather than pro-Israel”. Strizzolo referred to him being on a “hitlist”.

UK ministers are understood to regard such plot talks as a matter of serious concern, crossing the line beyond normal diplomatic activity. Duncan declined to comment.

Although the Israeli embassy insists Masot was a junior embassy official and not a diplomat, his business card describes him as “a senior political officer” and his LinkedIn page lists him as having worked for the embassy since November 2014. He describes his work as being the chief point of contact between the embassy and MPs and liaising with ministers and officials at the Foreign Office.

He also describes himself as having been a major in the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) between 2004 and 2011 – serving part of that time on a patrol boat off Gaza – and still employed by the IDF as deputy head of the international organisations sector.

The disclosures comes at a sensitive moment, just over a week after Theresa May put herself at odds with the Obama administration by expressing strong support for Israel in a row over the expansion of illegal settlements in the West Bank.

The sting operation, which began in June and ran through to November last year, recorded conversations on a number of occasions that include a wide range of pro-Israeli activists as well as British politicians and Israeli embassy staff.

The recordings form the basis of four half-hour documentaries that al-Jazeera is to broadcast from 15 January.

Strizzolo sought to play down what had been discussed. Asked a series of questions by the Guardian, she issued a statement that said: “The implications the Guardian is seeking to draw from a few out-of-context snippets of a conversation, obtained by subterfuge, over a social dinner are absurd.

“The context of the conversation was light, tongue-in-cheek and gossipy. Any suggestion that I, as a civil servant working in education, could ever exert the type of influence you are suggesting is risible. Shai Masot is someone I know purely socially and as a friend. He is not someone with whom I have ever worked or had any political dealings beyond chatting about politics, as millions of people do, in a social context.”

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “The Israeli ambassador has apologised and is clear these comments do not reflect the views of the embassy or government of Israel. The UK has a strong relationship with Israel and we consider the matter closed.”

___________________________________________________________

Why did the Pope attack the medium and not the pedophiles?

It is conceivable that the targets of Mossad’s pedophile snuff ring blackmail operation included the Pope and other members of the Vatican. This is because the spy agency targets people in high positions. The Vatican is, of course, an influential body in the world. The Vatican has already had numerous scandals involving pedophilia.

What is interesting is that the Russian Jewish pedophile mafia selected Italy as one of the first target countries to sell the snuff films to.

Another interesting fact is that the Vatican made a statement in support of hushing up the crime of pedophilia and the murder and torture of children, by speaking out against the Italian TV producers’ leaking of images from this snuff ring on TV, which they did in order to inform the public about the existence of this pedophile ring.

It is interesting to note that instead of attacking and denouncing the criminals involved in a pedophile ring that had made snuff films that showed the rape, torture and murder of children, the Vatican made the following statement, attacking the medium through which the images of pedophilia had been transmitted, and implying that the producers’ only motives were to increase sensationalism in broadcasting:

The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano criticized TV for worshipping a “cult” of sensational images and said the broadcasts had “violated Italian families” in the guise of news. “The images transmitted last night were not just an offense to viewers, but most of all to the children represented – twice victims, twice exploited, twice violated when they should have been protected,” it said.

http://articles.latimes.com/2000/sep/29/news/mn-28661

Another interesting fact to note is that the possible Mossad pedophile ring operator, Jeffrey Epstein, was able to move in the same circles that had access to the Pope in a social setting. His billionaire status opened many doors for him, and it is possible that the Pope and/or other members of the Vatican had fallen under the control of Mossad, through their blackmailing operations.

Later, after the Pizzagate scandal broke out in the US, in November 2016, Pope Francis made a pointed denunciation of the reporting and discussion of this phenomenon in the alternative media, making statements that criticized the “spread of disinformation”, likening the propagation of this to engaging in the fetish of “coprophilia”.

Spreading disinformation was “probably the greatest damage that the media can do”, the pontiff told the Belgian Catholic weekly Tertio. It is a sin to defame people, he added.

Using striking terminology, Francis said journalists and the media must avoid falling into “coprophilia” – an abnormal interest in excrement. Those reading or watching such stories risked behaving like coprophagics, people who eat faeces, he added.

The pope excused himself for using terminology that some might find repellent. “I think the media have to be very clear, very transparent, and not fall into – no offence intended – the sickness of coprophilia, that is, always wanting to cover scandals, covering nasty things, even if they are true,” he said. “And since people have a tendency towards the sickness of coprophagia, a lot of damage can be done.”

He also spoke of the danger of using the media to slander political rivals. “The means of communication have their own temptations, they can be tempted by slander, and therefore used to slander people, to smear them, this above all in the world of politics,” he said.

“They can be used as means of defamation. No one has a right to do this. It is a sin and it is hurtful.”

Disinformation was the greatest potential harm the media could cause, he said, because “it directs opinion in only one direction and omits the other part of the truth”.

Wednesday’s interview was not the first time Francis has made the same point in unusual language. A year before being elected pope, he told the Italian newspaper La Stampa: “Journalists sometimes risk becoming ill from coprophilia and thus fomenting coprophagia, which is a sin that taints all men and women – that is, the tendency to focus on the negative rather than the positive aspects.”

Investigations of Epstein’s mansion, where the crimes had taken place, turned up a framed picture of Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, his procurer, meeting with Pope John Paul II, a picture that was in a house full of obscene pictures and objets d’art of under-age girls.

“Clothing Shop Network” – Mossad leak to discredit Clinton

This seems to have been a Mossad operation that was run with the help of Wikileaks. It was to target Hillary Clinton, and help Donald Trump in his election campaign. Pizzagate is a bogus scandal aimed at conservatives in America, in order to encourage them to vote for Donald Trump. The Clothing Shop Network may have been a real Mossad network that employed Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. However, the leaking of it is very suspect. Like a lot of the leaks made by Wikileaks, there is some truth in the leaks. The existence of a pedophile ring run by Jeffrey Epstein appears to be credible. However, many of the other “leaks” mixed in probably are not.

The “leaks” were made by Mossad to Wikileaks.

Perhaps these leaks were meant to put the Clinton campaign on the defensive and to hide claims by “Katie Johnson” that Donald Trump raped her when she was 13 years old.

Video Showing Bill Clinton Rape Of 13-Year-Old Girl Plunges Presidential Race Into Chaos

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A stunning new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that the entire US presidential election is nearing an “explosive crisis” over a secretly made Israeli intelligence video recording showing former President Bill Clinton raping a 13-year-old girl child that Hillary Clinton has kept hidden from public knowledge with help from the American propaganda mainstream media—but by her embroiling Donald Trump in her husbands sex crimes now threatens it being released. [Note:Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

According to this report, the video recording of Bill Clinton raping this 13-year-old girl child was “created/engineered” by Israel’s Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations (MOSSAD) “Clothing Shop Network” (Магазин/одежды/חנות בגדים) whose main “organizer/facilitator” is the “international money man of mysteryJeffery Epstein—and who is now being called “The Billionaire Pedophile Who Could Bring Down Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton”.

Israeli MOSSAD agent Jeffery Epstein

MOSSADS “Clothing Shop Network”, this report explains, was originated in the early 1980’s by one of the most secretive billionaires in American named Leslie Wexner, and whose father (Harry Wexner—changed from Hagan Wexelstein) emigrated to the United States in the late 1930’s from the Jewish Autonomous Oblast (former Soviet Union).

The “Clothing Shop Network” name itself, this report continues, was derived from Leslie Wexner being one of America’s top clothiers—and who owns the US-based fashion retailers L Brands and Victoria’s Secret.

In 1982, SVR intelligence analysts in this report detail, Wexner recruited Jeffery Epstein into the “Clothing Shop Network” by providing him with an estimated $1 billion to establish a private financial firm named J. Epstein & Company—and that Wexner remains the firm’s biggest and the only publicly known client of.

The true purpose of J. Epstein & Company, however, this report continues, was to allow Jeffery Epstein to operate within the society circles of America’s political elites—and once “ensnaring his victims”, he allowed them to “fulfill” their most “deviant sexual fantasies”, while at the same time secretly video recording them for the “purpose of blackmail.

Epstein’s “blackmail victims”, this report details, included many members of American’s and Britain’s elites—but with his “biggest/largest” catch being former President Bill Clinton—who was revealed by recently released flight logs revealed to have flown on Epstein’s private jet named “The Lolita Express” to the secluded “sex toy land” Caribbean island run by Epstein 26 times, while ditching his Secret Service protectors, and his failing to notice that this “den of sin” was wired with hidden cameras secretly recording his orgies with underage girls.

With Bill Clinton’s having had sex with young girl children, and Hillary Clinton being advised by the “Clothing Shop Network” that they had the secretly recorded videos proving it, this report says, she then masterminded a plot to set up Donald Trump as a straw man” to be her opponent (and as emails prove) and was aided in this effort by America’s mainstream media who “provided/gave” to the New York City billionaire builder an estimated $3 billion in free media advertising so that he could become the Republican Party candidate for president.

The Hillary Clinton email proving this plot, this report explains, shows her and her accomplices conspiring to set up Donald Trump as their “Pied Piper” candidate, with some of them suggesting that Senator Ted Cruz or Dr. Ben Carson could, likewise, be set up too.

To why Hillary Clinton and her accomplices selected Donald Trump to be their “straw man” “Pied Piper”, SVR intelligence analysts in this report explain, was due to his knowing Jeffery Epstein too—but who unlike Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and others who engaged in sex with young girls on “orgy island” never committed these grave crimes—and as attested to by Miami Police Detective Mike Fisten who investigated Epstein’s many crimes and stated that “in hundreds of interviews with hundreds of witnesses, no one has ever identified Trump as being involved in any kind of sexual activity with underage girls”.

In fact, this report says, Detective Fisten recalls learning in the early 2000s that members of Trump’s private Palm Beach club, Mar-a-Lago, complained that Epstein was often accompanied by very young girls–“a different girl every week”—each of whom he would refer to as “his niece”.

With Hillary Clinton and her accomplices believing they had neutralized Donald Trump by his merely knowing Epstein, however, and their further belief that the “avalanche of scandals” surrounding Trump would cause his campaign to collapse upon itself, this report continues, this New York City billionaire, instead, has “defied all normal logic” and is nearing winning the US presidency.

In a “last chance” bid to destroy Donald Trump, however, SVR intelligence analysts in this report state, Hillary Clinton and her accomplices have now paid off a number of Bill Clinton’s rape victims to change their story saying that Trump had raped them—the details of which are contained in a US Federal Court filing making these absurd allegations.

With Hillary Clinton having already proven she will kill to protect the public from knowing of her husbands crimes against young girl children (and as we previously reported on in our 2 June 2016 report Husband Of Prosecutor Investigating Bill Clinton For Child Sex Charges Gunned Down), this report concludes, the next “event” in this “most dangerous of games” will be determined by MOSSAD’s “Clothing Shop Network”—and if the past is a predictor of the future knowing how the Israelis work to keep their nation safe, someone will surely die before this plays itself out.

Mossad Connection to Epstein’s Pedophile Island

Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of Robert Maxwell, a British media tycoon, a highly placed Mossad spy or sayanim, worked as Jeffrey Epstein’s fixer. It is highly likely she was recruited for this job because of her sympathies with Israel and her father’s connection to Mossad. The connections to Mossad lend support to the claim that Epstein was a Mossad agent or sayanim, whose job it was was to ensnare politicians and other prominent individuals into committing pedophilia for blackmailing purposes.

Epstein’s Girl Friday ‘fixer’: Dead tycoon’s daughter Ghislaine Maxwell and the girls she hired for paedophile’s stable

By Sharon Churcher

One woman has been a constant in the ever-shifting cast of females with which Jeffrey Epstein surrounds himself.

Ghislaine Maxwell, glamorous daughter of the late, disgraced newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell, is different from the other women in Epstein’s life in many ways but, most obviously, at 49, she is a lot older. She is also Epstein’s Girl Friday, his fixer – central to his operation.

It was Ghislaine who, in 1998, recruited the 15-year-old Virginia Roberts to work as Epstein’s ‘masseuse’.

Meeting Epstein for the first time at his Palm Beach mansion, Virginia was led into the massage room by Ghislaine. After a bizarre interview conducted by a naked Epstein, Ghislaine told Virginia to follow her instructions.

‘She had me put oil on my hand, then she grabbed one of his feet and started to massage it. She told me to take his other foot,’ says Virginia. ‘Then she told me to take off my clothes. He had sex with me.

‘Ghislaine said, “She’s got a knack for it.” And I thought, “These are important people. I must be doing something right.” ’

Ghislaine had fled to New York after the death of her father, who fell off his yacht – named the Lady Ghislaine after his favourite child – in mysterious circumstances in 1991.

His death revealed a vast financial black hole at the heart of his Mirror Group, including the employees’ pension scheme.

In Britain, the Maxwell name was mud as fraud trials, bankruptcy and disgrace swirled around the family, but in America – with her charisma, love of the high life and an address book stuffed with well-connected friends – Ghislaine became a fixture on the Manhattan social scene.

She and Epstein soon became inseparable. There was talk first of marriage, then it was said that they were like ‘an old married couple’ but that Epstein would not marry her. It emerged only after an FBI investigation into his sexual exploitation of teenagers that his interest lay in underage girls.

According to Virginia, Ghislaine helped smooth the way for Epstein to sexually molest the young girls recruited to ‘massage’ him.

But she also provided him with an entry into British society – including the friendship with Prince Andrew that lasted until Friday, when the Prince dramatically announced he was breaking off all contact.

Between 2000 and 2001, Andrew and Ghislaine were together on no fewer than eight occasions.

Epstein was present at four of the meetings – at the Mar-a-Lago club in Florida (from where Virginia was recruited), in Phuket, at a weekend party at Sandringham, and at Windsor Castle. In addition, Andrew has often been seen at Epstein’s grand New York townhouse.
