Our closest allies in the ME steal classified military secrets from us? No, say it isn't so!

Temps dropped to 50 below F. here last night. Gertee is holding the heat though, and I'm adjusted to waking up as soon as my inside temp drops below freezing. This is the kind of weather where everything becomes super fragile. Plastic cracks and even metal can be easily snapped. This slows the pace of living down to a snail's crawl; as much as I want to race back inside everytime I go outside to get a bucket of wood, I have to be careful or I won't have a wood bucket anymore.

(1) U.S. man pleads guilty to acting as agent for Israel

U.S. man pleads guilty to acting as agent for Israel


Tue Dec 30, 2008 3:31pm EST

By Daniel Trotta and Randall Mikkelsen

NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An 85-year-old former U.S. Army employee pleaded guilty on Tuesday to acting as an unregistered agent of Israel and admitted he gave classified documents to the Jewish state in the 1980s.

Court documents show the defendant, Ben-Ami Kadish, reported to the same handler as Jonathan Pollard, an American who spied for Israel in the 1980s and triggered a scandal that rocked U.S.-Israeli relations.

Kadish's plea indicates the Israeli spy network that obtained U.S. nuclear secrets through Pollard spread further than previously acknowledged.

It comes as the Bush administration considers a new request by Pollard for a commutation of his life sentence.

Prosecutors say Ben-Ami Kadish provided classified documents, including some relating to U.S. missile defense systems, to an Israeli agent, Yosef Yagur, who photographed the documents at Kadish's residence.

Yagur was one of Pollard's handlers, according to court documents.

From 1980 to 1985, Yagur asked Kadish to obtain classified documents, which Kadish retrieved from the U.S. Army's Picatinny Arsenal in Dover, New Jersey, according to Kadish's sworn statement.

Pollard, a former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst, is serving life in prison term after pleading guilty to spying for Israel in 1986. His case has led Jews in the United States and Israel to plea for clemency and a new request by Pollard is under Bush administration review.

Israel gave Pollard citizenship in 1996 and acknowledged he was one of its spies in 1998.

Though the United States and Israel are close allies, the Pollard case revealed how the thirst for intelligence trumped that friendship.

Kadish, a Connecticut-born U.S. citizen, faces a maximum of five years in prison at his February 13 sentencing in federal court in Manhattan but it is possible he will not serve any time.

Sentencing guidelines call for a maximum of six months and prosecutors said they would not oppose a sentence without jail time, according to his plea agreement.

He had been free on bail since shortly after his arrest in April on four counts of conspiracy and espionage as a result of an investigation that began in 2005.

The Israeli embassy had no immediate comment.

Kadish used his security clearance to borrow 50 to 100 classified documents from the arsenal's library, including some "concerning nuclear weaponry" and others relating to a modified version of an F-15 fighter jet that the United States had sold to an unidentified country, the complaint said.

A third pertained to the U.S. Patriot missile air defense system.

(3) Gilad Atzmon - Eine Kleine Nacht Murder: How Israeli Leaders Kill for their People's Votes

Gilad Atzmon - Eine Kleine Nacht Murder: How Israeli Leaders Kill for their People's Votes

By Gilad Atzmon • Dec 29th, 2008 at 13:17 • Category: Analysis, Gilad Atzmon, Gilad's Choice, Israel, Newswire, Our Authors, Palestine, Religion, War, Zionism

In order to grasp the latest devastating murderous Israeli expedition in Gaza one must deeply comprehend the Israeli identity and its inherent hatred towards anyone who fails to be Jewish and a hatred against Arabs in particular. This hatred is imbued in the Israeli curriculum, it is preached by political leaders and implied by their acts, it is conveyed by cultural figures, even within the so-called ‘Israeli Left’.

I grew up in Israel in the 1970’s people of my generation are nowadays the leaders of the Israeli army, politics, economy, academia and the arts. We were trained to believe that ‘a good Arab is a dead one’. A few weeks before I joined the IDF in the early 1980’s, General Rafael Eitan, the Chief of Staff at the time announced that the “Arabs were stoned cockroaches in a bottle”. He got away with it, he also got away with the murder of many thousands of Lebanese civilians in the 1st Lebanon war. In a word, Israelis manage to get away with murder.

Luckily enough, and for reasons that are still far beyond my comprehension, at a certain stage I woke up out of that Hebraic lethal dream. At one point I left the Jewish state, I evaded the Jewish hate mongering, I had become an opponent of the Jewish state and any other form of Jewish politics. However, I am utterly convinced that it is my primary duty to inform every being that is willing to listen about that which are we up against.

As much as Zionism was there to transform Jews, and by “giving them a State of their own” make them like any other people, it failed miserably. The Israeli barbarism as we have seen this week and too many times before is far beyond bestiality. It is killing for the sake of killing. And it is indiscriminate.

Not many people in the west are aware of the devastating fact that killing Arabs and Palestinians in particular is a very effective Israeli political recipe. The Israelis are indeed confused people. As much as they insist upon seeing themselves as a ‘Shalom seeking’[1] nation, they also love to be led by politicians with an astonishing record of unlawful murderous activity. Whether it was Sharon, Rabin, Begin, Shamir or Ben Gurion, Israelis love their ‘democratically elected leaders’ to be belligerent hawks with their hands dripping with blood and backed by a solid record of crimes against humanity.

We are weeks before an election in Israel and as it seems, both Kadima PM candidate Foreign minister Tzipi Livni and Labour PM candidate Defence minister Ehud Barak, are trailing well behind Likud PM candidate the notorious Hawk Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu. Livni and Barak need their little war. They must prove to the Israelis that they know how to engage in mass slaughter.

Both Livni and Barak have to provide the Israeli voter with some real exhibition of devastating carnage, so the Israelis can trust their leadership. This is their only chance against Netanyahu. Seemingly, Livni and Barak are throwing tons of bombs on Palestinian civilians, schools and hospitals because this is exactly what the Israelis want to see.

Unfortunately, Israelis are not known for mercy and grace. Instead they are appeased by retaliation and vengeance, they are cheered by their own limitless brutality. When an Ex-Israeli Air Force Chief Commander Dan Halutz was asked how it feels to drop a bomb on a highly populated neighbourhood in Gaza, his answer was short and precise. ‘It feels like a light bump on the right wing’. Dan Halutz’s cold deadly manner was enough to secure his promotion into the IDF Chief of Staff post shortly thereafter. It was General Halutz who led the Israeli army into the second Lebanon war, it was this man who perpetrated the destruction of Lebanese infrastructure and large parts of Beirut.

Seemingly, in Israeli politics, Arab blood is translated into votes. It would obviously be very reasonable to charge Livni, Barak and the current IDF Chief of Staff Ashkenazi with first-degree murder, crimes against humanity and the obvious breach of the Geneva Convention. But it would be far more intelligible to take into account that Israel is a ‘democracy’. Livni, Barak and Ashkenazi are giving the Israeli people that which they want: it is called Arab blood and it must come in vast quantity. This repetitive murderous practice, conducted by Israeli politicians reflects on the Israeli people as a whole rather than just a few politicians and generals. We are dealing here with a barbarian society that is politically driven by bloodthirstiness and lethal inclinations. There should be no mistake, there is no room for these people amongst nations.

Why the Israeli are people so remote from any notion of humanism is a big question. The generous and naïve humanists amongst us may argue that the Shoah left a big scar in the Israeli soul. This may explain why Israelis are obsessively cultivating that very memory with the support of their Diaspora brothers and sisters. The Israelis say ‘never again’ and what they mean is that Auschwitz should never reoccur, this somehow allows them to punish the Palestinian for the crimes committed by the Nazis. The realistic amongst us do not buy this argument anymore. They start now to admit that it is more than possible that the Israelis are so incredibly brutal just because this is how they are. It goes far beyond rationality or pseudo-analytical assumptions. They say, ‘this is what the Israelis are and there is not much we can do about it anymore’. The realistic amongst us come to admit that killing is how the Israelis interpret the meaning of being Jewish. Gravely, many of us come to admit that there is no alternative humanist secular Jewish value system to replace the Hebraic murderous one. The Jewish state is there to prove that Jewish national autonomy is an inhuman concept.

I grew up in post-1967 Israel. I was raised in the wake of the Israeli mythical victory, we were trained to worship the “Israeli who shoots from the hip” the platoon commando who shoots his Uzi automatic rifle in the direction of the Arabs and manages to win against four armies in just six days.

It may have taken me two decades too long to understand that the Israeli who ‘shoots from the hip’, was actually the master of indiscriminate killing. Barak was one of those 1967 heroes, he was a master indiscriminate killer. Apparently, the Israeli cabinet has just approved his plan for the biggest raid on Gaza since 1967. Livni is more or less my age, as we read the news, she internalised the message. She is now accumulating the necessary credentials as an indiscriminate murderer. Both Barak and Livni are taking Israel and Palestine into an election campaign of slaughter. Arab and Palestinian blood is the fuel of Israeli politics.

I may just suggest to Livni and Barak that it may not help them in the polls. Netanyahu is a genuine authentic hawk. He doesn’t have to pretend to be a murderer, and as much as I despise him, he has yet to take Israel into a war. He probably understands better than them what power of deterrence is all about.

[1] Do not confuse ‘shalom’ with ‘peace’ or ‘salam’. While peace and salam refer to reconciliation and compromise, shalom means security to the Jewish people on the expense of their surrounding environment.

Why does the US media show so much support for Israeli genocide in the Middle East? Why do US Christians (like the ones posting on Constance Cumbey's blog) support genocide in the Middle East? Is it possible that the War on Terror is being staged only to push the global governance agenda? Bush's Wars on Iraq and Afghanistan clearly violate UN and Iternational Law. Many from the US "left" have organized protests and petitions around their goal of taking Bush and Cheney before the International Communitarian Criminal Court. Obama supporters are convinced he will be different from the Bush Administration, even as Obama surrounds himself with Staff and Advisers who are openly Militant Zionists. VP elect Joe Biden co-wrote the Iraqi partition plan with Communitarian Network founder Amitai Etzioni. And, Dr. Etzioni is an invited, respected speaker at International forums on the Iraq War. The same people starting the wars are offering the solutions. Apparently, a LOT of people must be sacrificed for the global, sustainable common good. All Hail Queen Beatrix and her Nazi royal family!

Gaza: It's Terrorism, it's Slaughter. Crime can be reported

WRITTEN BY Pino Cabras - Megachip
Translated by Diego Traversa and Revised by Mary Rizzo for www.tlaxcala.es
"In the days of the atrocious massacre in Gaza, horror inevitably focuses on the images and the voices of the victims. They are tiny fragments that don’t help complete the picture of the tragedy yet. It’s hard to understand and reflect while such a disaster is underway. Yet, we are required to, in order to reconstruct the facts and the context."

There is obviously more than one side to the Middle Eastern crisis. In a free society where freedom of the press really exists, citizens are exposed to all relevant, well-presented opinions and analysis. The choice to read and vote intelligently rests upon the common people whose taxes pay for all foreign policies. Why does the US tolerate information gatekeepers? Why are we only exposed to the Zionists' Judeo-Christian messianic propaganda when the Israelis continue to steal vital US military secrets? How large is Pollard's spy network in the US? How many of these agents for a foreign power are low-level operatives disguised as major contributors to the Patriot Christian groups? Who runs the agenda for people like Alex Jones and Constance Cumbey, Americans who purportedly "expose" the New Age and the NWO? The Fusionist borg? Who is "Dorothy from Kansas" at American Counter-Revolution, and why is she making sure Constance Cumbey never once discussed communitarianism on her blog after she invited me as a guest on two of her shows? The purpose for inviting me was not to learn more about communitarianism, it appears to have been to subject me and my ACL work to public ridicule and slander for my principled stand aganist political Zionism.

The VERY LAST THING the Zionist borg wants the world to understand is their religious theory called communitarianism, and how it leads us all into global governance.

Show your support for a global free press! Start by helping Palestinian journalists travel outside their Israeli controlled concentration/death camps:

I have and never will trust 'em. They have too much invested in this country to keep it a level playing field. They control the media and I'm suprised this story every got out.

With the Communitarians in control of the White House, and with CFR backing, the 'Peace' agenda is going on the fast track. Israel is becoming an embarrassment, and news reports of Obama's strong support could be designed to egg them on in order to justify their next move. There was a report posted on Cumbey's blog yesterday about an interview with a "well placed" intel official who "warned of the increasing probability of abandonment of Israel by the U.S. and other Western countries based on what he termed 'malicious intelligence.'" Doug Hagmann who conducted the interview is director of Northeast Intelligence Network, a private investigation service which supports the official U.S. policy on terrorism. I haven't been able to verify the story.

My study of British-Israel and the Kingdom Identity Movement reveal connections with Communitarianism, so it seems logical that all of them will act together at some point (maybe soon) to pull the plug on Israel, the most warring nation after the U.S. With the financial collapse, the U.S. is loosing its ability to support Israel, so this is another incentive to cut them loose.

Bill Cooper did some radio interviews and some speaking engagements, but soon decided against them because of how the events were reported after the fact. He swore never to do another interview unless he was invited by Clay Douglass, which never happened. Nothing has changed, and were learning the same lessons over again.

Interesting that you should mention that "a LOT of people must be sacrificed for the global, sustainable common good"

I think you may be onto something, I think thats precisely what it is. HistoryMaker on Cumbey's blog has tried to harass me about a link from my site to Christian Morality. From the response I'm getting, they may not understand what that is.

Novak has some interesting history on sacrifice, and the meaning of it.

Hey Tent Lady,

I found out about you from the Cumbey blog. I think your suspicion of Constance is rooted in your suspicion of church people. You are right to be suspicious of church people, but I don't think Constance is beholden to anyone, so far as I can tell. I think you confuse church and church people with genuine Christianity. That's understandable. I'm tempted to allow myself to be confused about that too.

I believe that Constance is merely tolerating many of the comments at her blog in the interest of maintaining her platform. I have not read all of the comments, because I think half of the people making them are sycophants. I don't have time to waste on sycophants. I work for a living, after all. I'll be tempted to changer my opinion about Constance in this matter if she begins to agree with them in their ravings. Do you see her actually agreeing with them outright?

Many Evangelicals (sycophants) think that the modern state of Israel is some manifestation of God's promise to restore the Remnant in the latter days, before Christ returns. That view has paved the way for a lot of evil and stupidity. It just goes to show how wrong and deluded church people can be when they forsake studying their Bibles. They're consumers of religion that's all.

Surely you understand how consumerism and the lust for mammon (worldly goods) has prepared much of the world, especially America, for a commutarian takeover?

Your obsession/research is fascinating, because it parallels (in politics and economics) the socialist/New Age takeover of American religion. I think Constance gets that.

If a fellow wanted to ship you some 9mm Luger ammo, where would he send it?

the tent lady said...

thanks for the comments everyone. I'm pretty busy making sure I'm ready for the next big cold snap coming so I can't respond individually yet, but want you to know I am reading these.

I went to that site Bobby, very interesting and i'll be reading more of that asap.

I just don't know what to think about this whole situation at constance's blog. while she hasn't said anything that supports the accusations and ridicule she also hasn't addressed my responses to them or steered the conversation towards my actual work. she's so sweet to talk to and i do think she's genuinely concerned about the new age infiltration of the Christian churches. but it makes no sense to me why she doesn't lead her own blog to discussing the real issues I bring to the table and allows her supporters to continue with biased, personal, ad hominum attacks. the commenters seem to have the time to study the categories on my blog profile yet no time to study ACL research. It's a waste of time insisting everyone agrees on the unagreeable. The coming changes affect everyone no matter what their religion is.

anyway, as far as i know we're still on for next tuesday and then thursday i'll be on Dr. Stanley Monteith's show.

My address is Niki Raapana, HC 60 Box 326-A, Copper Center, AK 99573. Thanks for thinking of me!

P.S. Reb, I don't consider my work an "obsession," which is defined as an "unhealthy preoccupation with something or someone." Learning and studying Etzioni's work has freed my mind, body and soul. I'm healthier now than I was when I believed in the communitarian lie.

I consider ignoring communitaranism an unhealthy preoccupation with the illusion. It is national suicide to ignore fanantics and murderers in positions of political power. Resistance is most healthy when your people's lives are in danger. There is no negotiation with insane megalomaniacs, and world history proves the truth of this.

REB said...

Niki,

I did not mean to impart any negative connotation to your work. Merriam-Webster defines obsession as being negative, so I'll concede to choosing that word poorly. At the risk of making excuses, I'll plead to being steeped in the dialectic through our public schools. I'm currently trying to reeducate myself.

I'm very glad to see you guarding against dialecticism here. You are clearly doing what you and I wish Constance would do. It would be much harder for you to do that if you had two or three dozen public-school dunces like myself commenting here, would it not?

I hope to get around to sending you some ammo soon. I was going to go off half-cocked and just send 9mm Luger, but I want to be careful. I took another look at that GunBroker auction and I see that your pistol is listed as .380/9mm. I don't want to send the wrong ammo, because it could be dangerous. Stocks are a bit scarce in many of the Internet ammo shops, and I've been pressed for time.
