The good of the KLAN
“Benevolence and brotherly kindness is my quality of soul. Unselfish, patriotic service has been my mind and heart’s unerring aim. To live, “Not For Self But For Others” (Non Silba Sed Anthar) has been my life’s motto, my supreme ambition and my crowning glory. I do love my fellowman and have striven all my life to render him an unselfish, beneficial service.” – Col. William Joseph Simmons, fraternalist, philanthropist, founder and first Imperial Wizard of the revival Ku Klux Klan of 1915.
Among other things, and to his credit, Col. Simmons planned that his Klan would establish five universities, a publishing company, a banking and trust institution to aid ailing farmers, free homes to newly weds, a national full employment policy, a program to support orphans, several medical research centers, and a chain of hospitals.
At the height of its power the revived Ku Klux Klan had a membership of 8,904,871*- more then one out of eight American males between the ages of 21 and 65. This figure is even more impressive when one considers that many American males in this age group were ineligible for membership because they were Jewish, non white, Catholic, foreign born, or of bad reputation; quite possibly, the Klan’s eight million plus membership was as much as one third of the eligible male population. If one wants to calculate the total membership of the entire KKK then one must add to this 8,904,871 figure the more then one million members of the Women of the Ku Klux Klan, a separate KKK organization. To that add the combined memberships of the Junior Klan for teenage boys, the Tri-K-Klub for teenage girls, the Ku Klux Kiddies for pre-teens, the American Krusaders (the Klan auxiliary for foreign born naturalized American citizens), the Klan’s Colored man’s auxiliary, and the branches of the KKK established in Europe, Canada, Mexico, and New Zealand. So total KKK membership would have exceeded ten million. * This exact figure was found in the book, “Inside Ku Klux Klan” by Paul Gillette and Eugene Tillinger. 1965. Page 41.

The following was taken from an article that appeared in the New Hampshire Sunday News in Manchester, N.H., May 29, 1983.
“Few remember that 50 years ago the Klan was an accepted and often respected organization. It donated to numerous charities, sponsored social clubs and with few exceptions, was a law abiding society accepted by other clubs such as the Masons, Knights of Pythias, Odd Fellows, and the Grangers. On April 24, 1924, during a dedication ceremony for a new organ at the First True Memorial Baptist Church, 20 Klansmen marched down the aisle, donated $67.00 to the church and left the service without incident.”

The Klan also organized a Klan Kommunity Kit to compete with the Community Chest, church visits became a kind of ritual. Typically, a small group of Klansmen would march down the aisle, hand the minister an offering of money, and silently depart. (page 39)
Protestant ministers quickly found that the Klan’s emphasis on religion helped swell church attendance. (page 41)
Most Klansmen were law abiding, church going family men. Klansmen also hoped to eliminate vice and corruption through the ballot box. One Klansman declared, “Everybody knows that politicians nowadays cater to all kinds of elements, mostly selfish, some corrupt, and some definitely anti-American. They cater to the vice vote and even to the violently criminal vote. What the Klan intends to do is make them pay some attention to the decent God fearing, law abiding vote.” (pages 42-43)
During the 1920’s, the Klan was subjected not only to verbal abuse but also to physical assault in some areas. Bootleggers, for example, did not take kindly to the Klan’s attempts to enforce prohibition. When New Jersey’s Klan declared war on local bootleggers, the rum runners formed a defense council and publicly threatened to “Shoot to kill” anyone other then a policeman who interfered with their illegal traffic in liquor. (page 68)

The following was taken from, “Women of the Klan", by Kathleen M. Blee.
The major areas of work for the WKKK’s initial efforts were Americanism, education, public amusements, legislation, child welfare and delinquency, citizenship, civics, law enforcement, disarmament, peace, and politics. ” (page 28)
The Franklin, In. (Women’s) Klan leaders insisted that in only five weeks the order had done a great deal of charity work among the sick and needy of Franklin, including donating sums Ranging from $32 to $250 to families whose bread winners were stricken ill. Moreover, the Klan claimed it had presented $5 baskets of food to fourteen local families, awarded large American flags to three Protestant churches, and even given $25 to a Colored woman whose home was damaged by fire. (page 134)
WKKK chapters competed among one another to bring Protestant values to the public schools. When one WKKK klavern presented a Bible to every public school in the township, another donated a Bible to every school in the county, or a flag and a Bible to every school. Some schools received copies of Stories of the Bible together with their flags and Bibles. Others received multiple copies of new Bibles for the use of their students or placards with the Ten Commandments for every schoolroom. (page 144)
Women of the Klan in many Indiana counties met with township trustees to urge compulsory Bible reading in public schools. (page 145)
The main activity of the teen orders was social and familial. The KKK and WKKK sponsored play parties for their juvenile orders. Juniors arranged competitive sporting events, sponsored Klan father and son nights, picnics for the entire family, and joint meetings of the juniors and KKK. In 1924, the Indiana Klan sponsored a statewide Junior Klan basketball tournament. The boys’ order also ran summer camps under the sponsorship of the men’s groups and formed a boys’ drum corps. Both the boys’ and girls’ groups participated in Klan demonstrations, sometimes with their own floats, and attended adult Klan rallies as pages and flag bearers. They had robes, masks, a set of passwords, and even a burial ritual unique to the teen order. The girls; order also sponsored all-girl bands and drum corps that performed at Klan rallies and parades… (page 159)
As early as 1921, the Klan presented Lanier University in Atlanta with a substantial endowment, citing its full agreement with the principles of the university. (page 160)
In the Klan, boys would learn self-reliance, usefulness, the value of work, and the importance of God. So important was this task that the Klan even proposed a minimal tuition correspondence high school and a program of college scholarships for boys from low income families. The Junior Klan, like the Tri-K-Klub, was a preparation for the responsibilities of adult klanishness. While girls were learning the virtues and tasks of motherhood and moral education of the young, the boys were learning the secret agenda of the Klan itself. (page 161)
The Marion County WKKK, sponsored outdoor lectures and entertainment and movies, and even produced their own movie using local Klanswomen as actresses. Virtually every WKKK klavern sponsored weekly cultural activities that ranged from readings and lectures to sewing circles and cooking demonstrations. Group sing alongs were a favorite pastime. Many Indiana WKKK klaverns sponsored performing groups who were in high demand. Several WKKK chapters wrote and performed plays and skits.Klanswomen’s activities were often indistinguishable from those of other middle-class white Protestant women, for example, the Indiana WKKK locals chartered trains to take their families to Mammoth Cave, Ky. (pages 164-165)
The following was taken from, “The Ku Klux Klan in the Southwest", by Charles C. Alexander.
Hence the southwestern Klansman’s conception of reform encompassed efforts to preserve premarital chastity, marital fidelity, and respect for parental authority; to compel obedience of state and national prohibition laws; to fight the postwar crime wave; and to rid state and local governments of dishonest politicians. Klan reform in the Southwest centered on personal conduct rather than on institutional change, on “law and order” rather than on social amelioration. (page 21)
The next month, at DeQuincy, near the Sabine River in Calcasieu Parish, the local Klan introduced itself by posting signs warning disorderly boys and negligent parents; threatening “professional loafers, whiskey dealers, and law violators"; and promising help for “Negroes who conduct themselves as they should.” (page 47)
Klansmen got their own evidence, not only on criminals, but on negligent law officers as well. (page 48)
In mid-December the Prescott Klan gave $54 to the Christmas fund of the local newspaper. (page 52)
The Klan continually admonished bootleggers to “bring in the stills” and halt their illegal business, and there were a number of occasions when Klansmen “captured” stills and deposited them in the middle of town. The Klan was always quite proud of these “citizens arrests” of liquor-making apparatus. Local chapters readily acknowledged their responsibility for such acts and received credit from law officers. (page 76)
What can be said of the Klan’s reign of repression? Stanley Frost, from his observations in Oklahoma, credited the Klan with working for public morality, with carrying out an effective drive against crime, and with organizing public opinion behind law enforcement. (page 81)
If members of the local Klan gave money to widows or the town’s poor at Christmas, this was accepted as a sincere manifestation of the benevolent spirit; the Klan’s charitable ventures seemed particularly admirable in a period of parsimony in public affairs. (page 84)
Throughout the nation thousands of Protestant ministers (one Klan lecturer estimated the number at 40,000) took citizenship in the Invisible Empire. Others, while not joining the Klan, looked kindly on the order and encouraged the male members of their flocks to join. (page 87)
Even Billy Sunday, the greatest revivalist of the early twentieth century, spent some time praising the Klan and accepting contributions from prosperous chapters. (page 90)
Politics eventually obscured every other form of Klan endeavor, but before southwestern Klansmen became thoroughly embroiled in political enterprises, the order had spread goodwill as a philanthropic institution. Like Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias, and other societies, the Klan carried on a fairly large amount of charity work wherever it was organized. Imperial headquarters announced that local chapters gave more than $1,000,000 in charity during the year 1921.These contributions were distributed among a wide variety of worthy organizations and individuals; they ranged from modest donations to widows and sick people to ambitious fundraising drives for the construction of hospitals or orphans’ homes. (pages 91-91)
Alexandria Klan No. 12, in Louisiana, created a relief fund of nearly $2,000 for victims of a tornado at Pineville. In Arkansas, El Dorado Klan No. 92 initiated a fundraising drive for an Arkansas Oil and Gas Field Klan Hospital, to cost $125,000 and to be open to patients of all religious denominations. Forth Worth Klan No. 101 pledged $1,000 toward the construction of a new Y.M.C.A. building in the city; San Antonio Klan No. 31 contributed $2,500 in gold for a new “Y” building in the Alamo City; and the Houston Klan gave $2,000 to a Baptist hospital fund in Houston. In the spring of 1925, Little Rock Klan No. 1 financed a charity circus which played before a separate group of handicapped children for a week, all proceeds going to a fund for the children. Later that year the Little Rock chapter of the Women of the Ku Klux Klan dedicated a fourteen room children’s home on Woodlawn Ave. (pages 92-93)
In 1923, the Klan claimed that 500,000 Masons were citizens of the Invisible Empire. Both Simmons and his successor as Imperial Wizard, Evans, were Masons, and so many Masons joined the Klan that in some communities the Masonic lodge became simply an adjunct of the local Klan unit.
The following was taken from the Bloomington, Ill. “Daily Bulletin", Feb. 21, 1922, page 1:
Headline: “Thanks to the Ku Klux Klan, Shawnee, Okla.” - Negro comes into newspaper office, asks that letter be printed. “To members of the Ku Klux Klan - Greetings - We wish to thank you for your courtesy for helping to stop dishonesty and immoral practices in this section of town. We will appreciate any future steps that you may take to completely wipe out these practices. (signed) The Colored Secret Spying Society of South Town.
The following was taken from the Bloomington, Ill. “Daily Pantagraph” Sept. 17, 1924:
Headline: “Klansmen donate to Negro Church". Galesburg - 100 robed men walked into colored church during services and gave $65.00 to pastor with note, “The Klan is your friend.”
The following was taken from Chicago’s “Dawn", Dec. 23, 1922:
Headline: “Black Billy Sunday in Ft. Worth, Tx. likes Klan, preaches at St. James Church".
Headline: “Negroes refuse to join war on Klan in Suffolk, N.Y.; nine of sixteen ministers with Catholics say Klan isn’t harmful to them. Just against intermarriage.”
Headline: “Dixon Klan gives to Negro Baptist Church". At the Sunday service, Oct. 14, at the Colored Baptist Church here, the local organization of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan presented the congregation with an envelope containing four ten dollar bills. About three weeks ago the minister of this congregation received a letter ordering him to leave the city within twelve hours and letter was signed K.K.K., which is merely another example of the false propaganda being sent out by those who oppose this American organization. … The minister responded with his thanks and assured us that it was received in the proper spirit, and would be used in the proper way. He also said if the Klan is composed of such men and holds such high principles his prayer to God is for more Klansmen.”
Headline: “Klan visits Negro Preacher.” Sour Lake, Tx. - The Negro Methodist church was the scene of an extraordinary sensation last Sunday afternoon when several white robed Klansmen entered the building and presented the pastor with a donation of $40.00 and a message of encouragement. The visit followed the request of the pastor to Rev. Charles W. Hughes, pastor of the First Methodist church, to assist him in raising funds for religious work in the Colored community. Rev. Hughes delivered a sermon on “Money” before the dusky congregation and assisted in taking up the collection.”
Headline: “Negro leader learns Klan is friend.” Madison, Wis. - The Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the Negroes of Madison have buried the hatchet. This was indicated the other day by statements of Klan leaders and Rev. F.J. Peterson, pastor of the African Bethel church, who is regarded as a local leader of his race. The pastor acknowledged receipt of a donation of $25.00 made by the Klansmen. “The board of trustees of our church regards the donation as being made in good faith and has accepted it as such,” Rev. Peterson said. “It has helped to dispel natural prejudices and to encourage better feeling. …In a letter which accompanied the gift, it is declared that reports that the Ku Klux Klan is an anti-Negro organization are untrue.”
A summing up of the New Jersey KKK. Much of the following was taken from, “Hooded Americanism, the History of the Ku Klux Klan", by David Chalmers, the “Good Citizen” magazine, and Klan records.
The KKK first spread to New Jersey from the states of New York and Pennsylvania early in 1921 and has had a history of being a peaceful Klan. Attorney Arthur Bell was N.J.’s first and longest reigning Grand Dragon. He ruled the New Jersey KKK right up to the Klan’s disbandment in the 1940’s. His wife Leah Bell was the state leader of the Women of the Ku Klux Klan. The Klan’s first strongholds were in Passaic, Bergen, Essex, Union, and Morris counties and in the area around Trenton and Camden. But the Klan grew strongest in Monmouth county.
In the mid-twenties, the Klan marched, rallied, and worshipped. It reached a membership of around 100,000. The Klan built Monroe Recreational Park and Shark River Recreational Park, where the Grand Dragon lived and the Imperial Wizard visited. (The Klan placed the valuable Shark River Recreational Park in the name of the Monmouth Pleasure Club Association.
Before long the Klan prospered and spread throughout the state. It’s purposes were to protect the Constitution and pure womanhood; preserve the White race, the separation of church and state, and uphold law and order. There were no substantiated reports of actual Klan violence and ceremonial cross lightings were common. Drunkenness, wife beatings, mixed marriages, child abuse, and immorality were particularly opposed by the N.J. Klan. Apart from it’s nocturnal rituals and fraternalism, the primary concern of the N.J. Klan was the preservation of the traditional American values. As the Klan’s Tri-K-Girls put it, “The return to the teachings of our mothers.” This meant stressing the virtues of Christian fundamentalism and temperance. It was not surprising, therefore, that in New Jersey this often led to friendly relations and co-operation with many churches.
It became characteristic of the N.J. Klan to receive support from the ministry. Although Baptist, Presbyterian, Dutch Reformed, and Evangelical pastors and churches supplied pulpits and prestige for the Klan, its truest friends came from the Pillar of Fire Church and the Methodists. Bishop Alma White’s religious community of Zarepath (near Bound Brook) favored the Klan which they saw as an ally in the fight to protect bible Christianity against modern distortions and criticism. The Pillar of Fire Church looked with favor upon the Klan’s fiery cross. Bishop White praised the Klan by sermon, book, and in the church’s Good Citizen publication. Bishop White also predicted that the Klan would be popular among the colleges starting with Princeton University. The Imperial Wizard visited the Bishop White at her Zarepath church grounds several times.
Klansmen appeared at friendly churches such as the Third Presbyterian in Elizabeth, the Grace Methodist in Kearney, the First Baptist in Bayonne, the Calvary Methodist Episcopal in Paterson, the Grace Methodist Episcopal in Newark, and the Colonial United Methodist Church in Oxford. Usually they entered “robed up", sat in reserved sections, donated money to the minister, gave talks on why the Klan favored positive Christianity, and peacefully departed as church choirs sang “Onward Christian Soldiers". While approving Klansmen and congregations listened, ministers gave special sermons on Americanism, and quoted from Romans 12:1, the Klan’s verse of the New Testament.
In Monmouth and Ocean Counties Klansmen regularly paraded through the streets of Long Branch, Asbury Park, Point Pleasant, and Lakewood on their way to Sunday morning services. Members of the clergy joined the Klan. The recruiters and speakers of the N.J. Klan were often ministers and some pastors headed Klaverns or held state or local Klan office. Of all the denominations, the ministers of the Methodist Episcopal Church were most prominent in Klan affairs. Many ministers in New Jersey felt that it was part of their duty to seek out and reproach transgressors. They warmly approved joint efforts with the Klan to carry it out. The principal objectives of their concern were usually immorality and drunkenness. In Asbury Park, the Civic Church League and the Klan met at the First Methodist Episcopal Church to combine forces against such. Although vice was always a matter of concern, the bond uniting Klan and churchmen was a common struggle against alcohol abuse. During this time the KKK donated money to the Negro church of Belmar and paid off the mortgage to the Negro church of Vineland.
In the spring of 1923, the Klan went to the state assembly to support a bill to permit New Testament readings in public schools. (Such was not considered a violation of the separation of church and state at the time.) Later that summer the Klan and the Ministerial Association of Plainfield joined in opposition to Sabbath breaking. Some ministers preached that the Klan was the only hope of bringing straying Christians back into the fold, and the Grand Dragon promised that he would strive to return New Jersey to “The Old Time Religion". In the village of Atco, near Camden, the Klan participated in the dedication of a new non-denominational church. Throughout the 1920’s, the relationship between Klan and clergy continued. Klansmen and churchmen joined to sponsor Senator Heflin for president at a rally at Upsala College. In Atlantic City, the extremely active local Klansmen accused the city government of protecting vice and lawlessness. The Klan took part in the Flag Day parade in Bloomfield. In 11926, the Unity Klan No. 17 of Rahway and Linden sponsored a fund raising drive to rebuild the Negro Church of Carteret.
Although out of necessity, the Klan occasionally threatened the anti-Klan groups in New Jersey, the Klan was on the receiving end and more the victims rather than the doers of violence. The most controversial activity of the N.J. KKK came in 1940, just prior to US involvement in W.W.II. Grand Dragon Author Bell and a number of Klansmen and Klanswomen took part in a joint rally at Camp Nordland with the American Nazi Bund led by August Klapport. It was a short lived association as W.W.II send Klansmen nationwide rallying around the flag and Americanism more then ever. However, ever since biased historians and distortionists have used that incident to create the myth that the KKK and nazis were allied to each other. It is ignored by these myth makers that in the 1920’s the KKK passed out anti-fascist (as well as anti-communist) literature, that in the 1930’s the Nazis in Germany persecuted and destroyed the German branch of the KKK established there, and that during W.W.II the Nazis killed Gen. N.B. Forrest III (grandson of Grand Wizard Nathan B.Forrest), who was a United States Air Force general and was Grand Dragon of the Georgia KKK.
The Klan continued in New Jersey, until in 1944, the Klan was nationally disbanded for the second time. In 1946, on Stone Mountain, Ga., the KKK was revived again by Dr. Green. By the 1960’s the Klan was once again established in New Jersey. Fragmented units of various splinter Klans continually came and went. There was no unity, size, or influence. Then in the 1980’s a serious attempt was made to establish a legitimate Klan once again. While it’s main purpose was political and it had a member elected to public office twice and even ran a write in candidate for governor, the revived N.J.Klan also donated money to charities such as the Salvation Army, fire departments, churches, First Aid Squads, and the Polish Mothers’ Hospital. The New Jersey was not anti-Catholic in anyway. Greek Orthodox as well as Roman Catholics made up 40% of modern membership. However, the illegal activities of neo-nazis, who formed illegal renegade rival “Klans” made the task of re-establishing a legitimate respectable Klan in New Jersey impossible. The New Jersey Ku Klux Klan disbanded in the early 1990’s and there has been no legitimate KKK groups established in New Jersey ever since. However, since the collapse of most neo-nazi illegal “KKK” groups the potential for the re-establishment of a legitimate political or fraternal order Klan group does exist. But, it would be a difficult thing to try given today’s politically correct mind control.
Food for thought:
In 1923, H.L. Mencken and George Jean Nathan, recognized critics of the American scene, described the Ku Klux Klan for Smart Set, their journal of satirical sophistication. They flayed every organizational aspect of the national life. Sparing no one, majority or minority, they connected the KKK with all that was ludicrous and unwarranted in a society which they felt represented mediocracy. They wrote:
“Not a single solitary sound reason has yet been advanced for putting the Ku Klux Klan out of business. If the Klan is against the Jews, so are half of the good hotels of the Republic and three-quarters of the good clubs. If the Klan is against the foreign born or the hyphenated citizen, so is the National Institute of Arts and Letters. If the Klan is against the Negro, so are all of the states south of the Mason-Dixon line. If the Klan is for damnation and persecution, so is the Methodist Church. If the Klan is bent upon political control, so are the American Legion and Tammany Hall. If the Klan wears grotesque uniforms, so do the Knights of Pythias and Mystic Shriners. If the Klan holds its meetings in the dead of night, so do the Elks. If the Klan conducts its business in secret, so do all college Greek letter fraternities and the Department of State. If the Klan holds idiotic parades in the public streets, so do the police, the letter-carriers, and firemen. If the Klan’s officers bear ridiculous names, so do the officers of the Lambs’ Club. If the Klan uses the mails for shaking down suckers, so does the Red Cross. If the Klan constitutes itself a censor of private morals, so does the Congress of the United States. If the Klan lynches a Moor for raping someone’s daughter, so would you or I”
Yes, the Traitor Bush can’t throw your money away fast enough. In honor of “World AIDS Day” tomorrow, the traitor wants congress to approve THIRTY BILLION DOLLARS to the AIDS crisis over the next five years!! We just can’t spend enough on those damn ni**ers in those savage commie ni**er countries in Africa!
MOUNT AIRY, Md. - President Bush urged Congress on Friday to approve an additional $30 billion for the fight against AIDS worldwide over the next five years, and announced he would visit Africa early next year to further highlight the need and his administration’s efforts.
“We dedicate ourselves to a great purpose: We will turn the tide against HIV/AIDS — once and for all,” Bush said. “I look forward to seeing the results of America’s generosity.”
Bush chose the gymnasium at the Calvary United Methodist Church in this tiny western Maryland town to make his remarks. The church supports a Christian group home and school in Namibia for children orphaned by the disease. Before speaking, he met with representatives from churches and other religious groups that have been fighting AIDS, part of his attempt to highlight his belief that faith-based organizations are the best vehicles for such work.
Evangelical Christians, who make up a large and influential portion of Bush’s political support, have been key to his policies increasing U.S. involvement in the fight against AIDS, particularly in Africa. Bush has been said to believe that the United States, and his administration, do not get enough credit for the work being done on the issue.
“Every year American taxpayers send billions of their hard-earned dollars overseas to save the lives of people they have never met,” he said.
But “in return for this extra generosity, Americans expect results,” the president said, adding that his program demands measurable progress, accountability and the involvement of local partners. The result: The number of people in sub-Saharan Africa receiving treatment for AIDS has gone from 50,000 five years ago to nearly 1.4 million now.
“We have pioneered a new model for public health,” Bush said. “So far, the results have been striking.”
‘A good start’
In May, the last time he devoted a speech to the topic, Bush asked Congress to double the $15 billion that the U.S. committed over the program’s first five years to therapy, testing and counseling through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. The program is active in 120 countries, with a concentrated focus on 15, including Namibia, in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and the Caribbean.
As of the end of September, 1.36 million people in those focus countries have received antiretroviral treatment through the program, with a focus on averting infant infections by treating pregnant women. Others receive testing and counseling.
“Some call this remarkable success. I call it a good start,” Bush said, adding that he has worked with other nations and the private sector to increase their commitments.
Doubling the funding for PEPFAR would provide treatment for 2.5 million people, the White House said.
Also in honor of Saturday’s World AIDS Day, the White House hung a red ribbon — 28 feet tall and 8 feet wide — in the North Portico of the mansion to symbolize the fight against AIDS. It will stay up for two days and, on Saturday, guests who visit the White House will receive a red ribbon sticker and a fact card.
The White House also said Friday that the Department of Homeland Security will publish a final rule this winter aiming to help reduce discrimination against those living with the virus that causes AIDS. The new rule would establish a categorical waiver for HIV-positive people seeking to enter the United States on short-term visas. A 1993 law prohibits HIV-positive people from receiving visas to visit the United States without a waiver. A categorical waiver will enable HIV-positive people to enter the United States for short visits through a streamlined process.
It was the month before Christmas
When all through our land,
Not a Christian was praying
Nor taking a stand.
Why the Politically Correct Police had taken away,
The reason for Christmas - no one could say.
The children were told by their schools not to sing,
About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.
It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say
December 25th is just a ” Holiday “.
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit
Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod
Something was changing, something quite odd!
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down
At Lowe’s the word Christmas - was no where to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears
You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.
Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty
Are words that were used to intimidate me.
Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
On Obama, on Dodd, on Jackson, on Biden.
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter
To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace.
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
The reason for the season, stopped before it started.
So as you celebrate “Winter Break”
under your “Dream Tree”
Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say
not Happy Holiday!
Store removes ‘racist’ dolls
Published: 29th November 2007 17:09 CET
Stockholm’s most prestigious department store, Nordiska Kompaniet (NK), has had to remove a set of black ragdolls from its Christmas window display after receiving a number of complaints from concerned customers.
A visit to NK’s Christmas displays has been a part of Stockholmers’ staple holiday traditions ever since 1915. This year’s theme was “A dream Christmas”. Puppies, dragons and polar bears danced side-by-side with sugar plum fairies and… what appeared to be golliwogs.
When the windows were first available for public consumption on Sunday, one featured three of the black dolls emerging from a Christmas package.
“The company that does our window displays gets a lot of its stock from Germany,” NK spokeswoman Sofie Stenbeck told The Local.
“They went there to buy the dolls. But they ended up getting a lot of e-mails from customers, who said that the dolls looked like golliwogs,” she added.
A golliwog is a black ragdoll that was originally a literary character created by English author and illustrator Florence Kate Upton in the late 19th century.
These dolls, with their jet black skin, lipstick red lips and fuzzy hair, became a popular children’s toy. They resembled the characters in the American minstrel shows, comedies that often stereotyped black people as bumbling idiots.
The golliwog was also used as the mascot of British jam manufacturer James Robertson & Sons from 1910 until the company’s products were boycotted as offensive in the early 1980s.
According to Sofie Stenbeck, NK was also contacted by members of the public who found the dolls inappropriate.
“When we looked at the window again we saw that the dolls were very similar to these golliwogs. We took a decision to remove them. Of course they shouldn’t be there if they cause offence,” she said.
By Wednesday the dolls had been replaced by a toy spider and a stuffed turtle.

Iraq pledge by Australia PM-elect
Mr Rudd came to power in landslide elections on Saturday
Australia’s prime minister-elect says the country’s 550 combat troops will leave Iraq by the middle of 2008.
Kevin Rudd, who beat incumbent John Howard in last weekend’s election, had previously promised a gradual withdrawal of Australian troops.
He made the pledge in an Australian radio interview, but said there had been no discussions yet with the US.
Under Mr Howard Australia was a keen supporter of the US-led invasion and made an early troop commitment.
Most of Australia’s 1,500 troops are based in the south of Iraq, focusing on security and the training of Iraqi forces.
‘Single greatest error’
Labor Party leader Kevin Rudd came to power in a landslide election victory on Saturday.
He has previously described the decision to go to war in Iraq as the “single greatest error” of Australian national security and foreign policy decision-making since the Vietnam war.
Australia currently has 550 combat troops in Iraq
“The combat force in Iraq, we would have home by around about the middle of next year,” Mr Rudd told a Melbourne radio station on Friday, adding that he would leave behind some Australian soldiers, including those providing security at Australia’s embassy in Baghdad.
Until Mr Rudd’s election victory, the US had counted Australia as one of its few allies in the war in Iraq - although due to the small number of Australian troops deployed, their significance was largely symbolic.
US President George W Bush has warned that withdrawing from Iraq would give encouragement to the militants there.
But since being voted into office, Mr Rudd has sought to allay Mr Bush’s fears. In his victory speech last weekend, he sent his greetings to “our great friend and ally the United States".
He said on Friday that he would arrange to meet US Ambassador Robert McCallum to discuss the Iraq withdrawal as soon as possible.
There are other differences between Mr Rudd and Mr Bush, notably their stance on the Kyoto Treaty on the environment.Mr Howard, like Mr Bush, refused to sign, but Mr Rudd has already indicated his willingness to ratify the treaty.
Police detain 21-year-old white man on hate crime charge
Police arrested a 21-year-old white man on a hate crime charge after a burning cross was found in a black family’s front yard.
Christopher Hudak is the brother of a girl who was involved in a school fight with a boy from the family just hours before the cross appeared last week, police Capt. Keith Corlett said at a news conference.
Cross burnings are seen as expressions of racism, made well-known by white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan.
Hudak was charged with aggravated harassment, Corlett said. Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore said the case would be prosecuted as a hate crime.
“No matter what issues, concerns or beliefs people may have toward one another, no family, individual or persons should be subjected to, or should have to tolerate, any act of hate - particularly one of this nature,” Corlett said.
Timothy Artope had admitted fighting with two girls on Nov. 21, saying one used a racial slur. That night, his family found the 4-foot (1.2-meter) wooden cross burning in their yard.Corlett said Hudak, who is unemployed, “fabricated an alibi” that disintegrated during the investigation. Police then obtained a warrant and found computer records that led to his arrest.
Report: Legal, illegal immigrant numbers at record highs
New study says Florida has nearly 3.5 million immigrants, and at least 1 million are here illegally
By Daily News staff
Originally published — 8:17 a.m., November 29, 2007
Updated — 9:36 p.m., November 29, 2007
Immigrants account for one in eight U.S. residents as the legal and illegal immigrant population reached a record of 37.9 million in 2007, the highest level in 80 years, according to a new report released today by the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, an independent research institute which examines the impact of immigration on the nation.
The report, “Immigrants in the United States, 2007: A Profile of America’s Foreign-Born Population,” examines the size, growth, and characteristics of the nation’s immigrant, or foreign-born, population as of March 2007. The report, which provides a detailed picture of overall immigrant population, and of the illegal immigrant population specifically, is online at http://www.cis.org/articles/2007/back1007.html.
Nearly 3.5 million immigrants are living in Florida, according to the report, that also says at least one million of those immigrants are here illegally.
The number of Florida immigrants is up from 2.9 million in 2000 — a 16.7% increase from 2000 to 2007. The state has one of the fastest-growing immigrant populations, the report shows.
A news release today highlights these findings from the report:
• Overall, nearly one in three immigrants is an illegal alien. Half of Mexican and Central American immigrants and one-third of South American immigrants are illegal.
• Since 2000, 10.3 million immigrants have arrived — the highest seven-year period of immigration in U.S. history. More than half of post-2000 arrivals (5.6 million) are estimated to be illegal aliens.
• Of adult immigrants, 31 percent have not completed high school, compared to 8 percent of natives. The share of immigrants and natives with a college degree is about the same.
• 33 percent of immigrant-headed households use at least one welfare program, compared to 19 percent for native households. Among households headed by immigrants from Mexico, the largest single group, 51 percent use at least one welfare program.
• The poverty rate for immigrants and their U.S.-born children (under 18) is 17 percent, nearly 50 percent higher than the rate for natives and their children.
• 34 percent of immigrants lack health insurance, compared to 13 percent of natives. Immigrants and their U.S.-born children account for 71 percent of the increase in the uninsured since 1989.
• The primary reason for the high rates of immigrant poverty, lack of health insurance, and welfare use is their low education levels, not their legal status or an unwillingness to work.
• Of immigrant households, 82 percent have at least one worker, compared to 73 percent of native households.
• Immigrants make significant progress over time. But even those who have been here for 20 years are more likely to be in poverty, lack insurance, or use welfare than are natives.
• There is a worker present in 78 percent of immigrant households using at least one welfare program.
• Immigration accounts for virtually all of the national increase in public school enrollment over the last two decades. In 2007, there were 10.8 million school-age children from immigrant families in the United States.
• Immigrants and natives have similar rates of entrepreneurship — 13 percent of natives and 11 percent of immigrants are self-employed.
• Recent immigration has had no significant impact on the nation’s age structure. Without the 10.3 million post-2000 immigrants, the average age in America would be virtually unchanged at 36.5 years.
• Detailed information is provided for Florida, Texas, California, Arizona, Massachusetts, Colorado, Georgia, North Carolina, Washington, Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey, Virginia, and Maryland.
Data source: The Current Population Survey provides the data for the study. It was collected by the Census Bureau in March 2007 and has not been fully analyzed until now. There is agreement among policy experts, including the Department of Homeland Security, that roughly 90 percent of illegal immigrants respond to Census Bureau surveys of this kind. This allows for separate estimates of the size and characteristics of the illegal immigrant population.
Anti-Semitic church drops Nazi symbols
By JAY REEVES, Associated Press Writer
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - An anti-Semitic church formed by white supremacists has abandoned its neo-Nazi imagery, such as swastikas, to make its message more palatable, a change that a leading Jewish group called an attempt to “sanitize hatred.”
The group banned the use of Nazi uniforms, red arm bands and similar regalia because they were an instant turnoff to people who might otherwise be open to the church’s teachings, including the belief that white Anglo-Saxons — not Jews — are God’s chosen people in the Bible.
“We don’t like the swastikas. We don’t like the negativity,” said Jonathan Williams, the leading pastor of the United Church of YHWH. “The majority of people see all that as pure evil.”
Williams was formerly involved with Aryan Nations, which was once the best-known neo-Nazi organization in the United States. It was led by Richard Butler, who was acquitted in 1989 on charges of attempting to create a new Aryan country through assassinations, robberies, guerrilla bands and a race war.
In 2000, the group had to give up its compound in Hayden, Idaho, after Butler lost a $6.3 million judgment for an attack on a mother and son.
After Butler died in 2004, followers relocated to Talladega in east Alabama, and earlier this year renamed themselves the United Church of YHWH. The initials are a reference to Yahweh, the Hebrew word for God.
Bill Nigut, the regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, said the group was attempting to “sanitize hatred” by appearing to be more mainstream.
“We find it very disturbing. They can begin a conversation now with people they could not have before,” he said. “They can get in the door.”
Other organizations still use the Aryan Nations name, complete with Nazi symbolism. But the ADL describes the one in Alabama as the most direct descendent of the group headed by Butler.
The FBI said it tracks such organizations but declined to comment on the United Church of YHWH, which says it also has contacts in Germany, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
“In general terms, the FBI is aware of any type of white-supremacist group,” said Paul Daymond, an agency spokesman in Birmingham. “We stay abreast of what’s going on as far as those groups are concerned.”
Williams’ group held a meeting in September in the north Alabama town of Athens that attracted a handful of followers. Photos on its Web site show only seven men and a child.
It also maintains a Web site that rails against Judaism: “We detest the Jewish faith as it goes against all Christian tenets.”
Williams says the church doesn’t have a building but meets in the homes of followers. The group only has a few core members, he said, but it has “several hundred” adherents worldwide.
It does not advocate a separate nation for whites, as Butler did, but followers believe members of different races should not date or marry.
“Not dating someone doesn’t mean hating them,” Williams said. “The only people we hate are people who hate Christ.”
The group describes Jews as “enemies of Christ,” and the ADL official said it doesn’t matter that the group no longer uses Nazi symbolism.
“He might say he doesn’t like the Nazi stuff, but he is still anti-Semitic,” Nigut said.
Rodney King sprayed with shotgun pellets
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. - Rodney King, whose videotaped police beating in 1991 led to deadly rioting when the officers involved were acquitted, was shot on a street corner, but his wounds were not life-threatening, police said.
King, 42, was shot two or three times from a distance by birdshot fired from a shotgun. He then bicycled about 1 1/2 miles back to his home in neighboring Rialto and called police. King was hit in the face, arms, back and torso, police said.
Authorities said when they arrived at the home, King and others appeared drunk and were largely uncooperative in providing information about the shooting.
King was taken to a hospital. His condition on Thursday was not immediately known.
The shooting may have involved a domestic dispute, San Bernardino police Lieutenant Scott Paterson said.
King, who is black, was videotaped being beaten by white Los Angeles police officers after he was stopped for speeding in 1991. Four officers were acquitted of most criminal charges in 1992, triggering rioting in Los Angeles and neighboring cities that left 55 people dead and caused $1 billion in property damage.
King sued the city over the beating and obtained a $3.8 million settlement.
However, he continued to have run-ins with the law. In 2004, he was ordered to spend 120 days in jail and ordered into treatment after pleading guilty to driving under the influence of the drug PCP after he lost control of his SUV in 2003 and slammed into a power pole in Rialto.Rialto and San Bernardino are about 55 miles east of Los Angeles.
Europeans should leave Afghanistan - Osama
November 30 2007 at 12:05AM
By Firouz Sedarat
Dubai - Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden urged European countries to end their military co-operation with United States forces in Afghanistan, in an audio tape aired by Al Jazeera television on Thursday.
He said American power was waning and it would be wise for the Europeans to quickly end their role in Afghanistan, where many European countries contribute to the 50 000-strong Nato and US-led coalition forces fighting his Taliban allies.
“With the grace of God… The American tide is receding and they would eventually return to their home across the Atlantic… It is in your interest to force the hand of your politicians (away from) the White House,” said a speaker in the recording who sounded like Bin Laden.
He said the United States would soon leave the region, leaving Afghanistan’s neighbours “to settle their scores".
The United States led the invasion of Afghanistan to depose its Taliban rulers in late 2001, after they refused to hand over bin Laden and other al-Qaeda leaders following the September 11 attacks on the United States.
Jazeera, which did not say how it obtained the recording, aired portions in which Bin Laden said the Taliban had no knowledge of plans for the attacks.
“I am the one responsible… The Afghan people and government knew nothing whatsoever about these events,” he said, adding that the United States had not provided any evidence of Taliban involvement to justify its involvement.
“Europe marched behind it with no choice but to be a lackey,” bin Laden said.
Among European countries with troops in Afghanistan are Britain, Germany and France. The aim of the coalition forces is to help bring security to allow reconstruction after decades of conflict.
But Afghanistan has seen a steady rise in violence since the Taliban relaunched their insurgency to overthrow the pro-Western Afghan government and eject foreign troops two years ago.
Bin Laden accused foreign forces of committing atrocities in Afghanistan.
“Most victims of your bombardments are purposely children and women. And you know that our (Muslim) women do not fight but you target them even during festivities to break the morale of the mujahideen (holy war fighters),” he said. Bin Laden’s last message was released on October 22. The Saudi-born militant then urged unity between Iraq’s Sunni insurgents.
The full recording is yet to be released by an Islamist website which said on Monday it would carry it. Pro-al-Qaeda militants have accused Al Jazeera of omitting important parts of the last Bin Laden tape.
Adolf Eichmann Was a Crypto-Jewish Zionist Nazi
Christopher Jon Bjerknes
Adolf Eichmann was a crypto-Jewish Zionist Nazi, who, together with other such Jews, attempted to force European Jewry to emigrate to Palestine against their will. According to Hennecke Kardel in his book Adolf Hitler: Begruender Israels, Eichmann was a full-blooded Jew. According to Eichmann himself, he was a radical Zionist.
Adolf Eichmann identified himself as a Zionist in 1939 in a conversation with Anny Stern,
“‘Are you a Zionist?’ Adolph Eichmann, Hitler’s specialist on Jewish affairs, asker her. ‘Jawohl,’ she replied. ‘Good,’ he said, ‘I am a Zionist, too. I want every Jew to leave for Palestine.’"—L. Dickstein, “Hell’s Own Cookbook", The New York Times, Book Review Section, (17 November 1996), p. 7.
Nazi Zionist Adolf Eichmann stated in 1960,
“[H]ad I been a Jew, I would have been a fanatical Zionist. I could not imagine being anything else. In fact, I would have been the most ardent Zionist imaginable."—A. Eichmann, “Eichmann Tells His Own Damning Story", Life Magazine, Volume 49, Number 22, (28 November 1960), pp. 19-25, 101-112; at 22.
Adolf Eichmann stated,
“I issued the cloth [yellow cloth for the badges Jews were forced to wear] to my Jewish functionaries and they trotted off with them. [***] There was a Jewish lawyer in Vienna who said to me, ‘Sir, I wear this star with pride.’ This man impressed me. He was an idealist. So I let him emigrate soon afterward. [***] We even had some Jewish SS men who had taken part in the early struggles of the Nazis—about 50 of them in Germany and Austria. I remember giving my attention to a Jewish SS sergeant, a good man, who wanted to leave for Switzerland. I had instructed the border control to let him pass [***] He was a 100% Jew, a man of the most honorable outlook. [***] I am no anti-Semite. I was just politically opposed to Jews because they were stealing the breath of life from us. [***] Certainly I too had been aiming at a solution of the Jewish problem, but not like this. [***] I would not say I originated the ghetto system. That would be to claim too great a distinction. The father of the ghetto system was the orthodox Jew, who wanted to remain by himself. In 1939, when we marched into Poland, we had found a system of ghettos already in existence, begun and maintained by the Jews. We merely regulated those, sealed them off with walls and barbed wire and included even more Jews than were already dwelling in them. The assimilated Jew was of course very unhappy about being moved to a ghetto. But the Orthodox were pleased with the arrangement, as were the Zionists. The latter found ghettos a wonderful device for accustoming Jews to community living. Dr. Epstein from Berlin once said to me that Jewry was grateful for the chance I gave it to learn community life at the ghetto I founded at Theresienstadt, 40 miles from Prague. He said it made an excellent school for the future in Israel. The assimilated Jews found ghetto life degrading, and non-Jews may have seen an unpleasant element of force in it. But basically most Jews feel well and happy in their ghetto life, which cultivates their peculiar sense of unity. [***] [W]e did not want to punish individual Jews. We wanted to work toward a political solution. [***] Himmler would not stand for that kind of thing. That is sadism. [***] ‘I will gladly jump into my grave in the knowledge that five million enemies of the Reich have already died like animals.’ (’Enemies of the Reich,’ I said, not ‘Jews.’) [***] Long before the end, any of the Jews I dealt with would have set up foreign exchange for me in any country I had named, if I had promised any special privileges for them. [***] It would be too easy to pretend that I had turned suddenly from a Saul to a Paul. No, I must say truthfully that if we had killed all the 10 million Jews that Himmler’s statisticians originally listed in 1933, I would say, ‘Good, we have destroyed an enemy.’ But here I do not mean wiping them out entirely. That would not be proper—and we carried on a proper war. Now, however, when through the malice of fate a large part of these Jews whom we fought against are alive, I must concede that fate must have wanted it so. I always claimed that we were fighting against a foe who through thousands of years of learning and development had become superior to us. I no longer remember exactly when, but it was even before Rome itself had been founded that the Jews could already write. It is very depressing for me to think of that people writing laws over 6,000 years of written history. But it tells me that they must be a people of the first magnitude, for law-givers have always been great."—A. Eichmann, “Eichmann Tells His Own Damning Story", Life Magazine, Volume 49, Number 22, (28 November 1960), pp. 19-25, 101-112; at 23, 24, 102, 104, 106, 110; and “Eichmann’s Own Story: Part II",Life Magazine, (5 December 1960), pp. 146-161; at 150, 158, 161.
In violation of international law, the Israelis kidnapped Eichmann and placed him on trial for his life. He was probably alarmed by the ingratitude of the Israelis, who owed their existence to Eichmann’s work.
At his trial in Jerusalem, Session Number 90, 26 Tammuz 5721, 10 July 1961, Eichmann confirmed that he twice requested permission to learn Hebrew from a Rabbi. He also stated that the annihilation (Vernichtung) of the Jews to him meant deportation and Zionism, however, he further stated that Hitler later changed course in the middle of the war and sought the physical annihilation of the Jews. Adolf Eichmann stated that he had sought a deal with the Western Allies to exchange one million Jews for 10,000 trucks to be used on the Eastern front. Jewish Communist turned Zionist, Joel Brand had established a relationship with the Nazis and tried to arrange the deal with the Western Allies. The offer was declined. This story was publicly exposed in 1956.
Eichmann told another story of his dealings with the Zionist Dr. Rudolf Kastner, which ultimately resulted in the deaths of countless assimilated Hungarian Jews, and the survival of the fittest Zionist Jews for Israel, Jews who were Kastner’s friends. Eichmann stated, inter alia,
“As a matter of fact, there was a very strong similarity between our attitudes in the SS and the viewpoint of these immensely idealistic Zionist leaders who were fighting what might by their last battle. As I told Kastner: ‘We, too, are idealists and we, too, had to sacrifice our own blood before we came to power.’ I believe that Kastner would have sacrificed a thousand or a hundred thousand of his blood to achieve his political goal. He was not interested in old Jews or those who had become assimilated into Hungarian society. But he was incredibly persistent in trying to save biologically valuable Jewish blood—that is, human material that was capable of reproduction and hard work. ‘You can have the others,’ he would say, ‘but let me have this group here.’ And because Kastner rendered us a great service by helping keep the deportation camps peaceful, I would let his groups escape. After all, I was not concerned with small groups of a thousand or so Jews."—A. Eichmann, “Eichmann Tells His Own Damning Story", Life Magazine, Volume 49, Number 22, (28 November 1960), pp. 19-25, 101-112; and “Eichmann’s Own Story: Part II", Life Magazine, (5 December 1960), pp. 146-161; at 146.
Hannah Arendt wrote in her book Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil,
“Of greater importance for Eichmann were the emissaries from Palestine, who would approach the Gestapo and the S.S. on their own initiative, without taking orders from either the German Zionists or the Jewish Agency for Palestine. They came in order to enlist help for the illegal immigration of Jews into British-ruled Palestine, and both the Gestapo and the S.S. were helpful. They negotiated with Eichmann in Vienna, and they reported that he was ‘polite,’ ‘not the shouting type,’ and that he even provided them with farms and facilities for setting up vocational training camps for prospective immigrants. (’On one occasion, he expelled a group of nuns from a convent to provide a training farm for young Jews,’ and on another ‘a special train [was made available] and Nazi officials accompanied’ a group of emigrants, ostensibly headed for Zionist training farms in Yugoslavia, to see them safely across the border.) According to the story told by Jon and David Kimche, with ‘the full and generous cooperation of all the chief actors’ (The Secret Roads: The ‘Illegal’ Migration of a People, 1938-1948, London, 1954), these Jews from Palestine spoke a language not totally different from that of Eichmann. They had been sent to Europe by the communal settlements in Palestine, and they were not interested in rescue operations: ‘That was not their job.’ They wanted to select ’suitable material,’ and their chief enemy, prior to the extermination program, was not those who made life impossible for Jews in the old countries, Germany or Austria, but those who barred access to the new homeland; that enemy was definitely Britain, not Germany. Indeed, they were in a position to deal with the Nazi authorities on a footing amounting to equality, which native Jews were not, since they enjoyed the protection of the mandatory power; they were probably among the first Jews to talk openly about mutual interests and were certainly the first to be given permission ‘to pick young Jewish pioneers’ from among the Jews in the concentration camps. Of course, they were unaware of the sinister implications of this deal, which still lay in the future; but they too somehow believed that if it was a question of selecting Jews for survival, the Jews should do the selecting themselves. It was this fundamental error in judgment that eventually led to a situation in which the non-selected majority of Jews inevitably found themselves confronted with two enemies—the Nazi authorities and the Jewish authorities. As far as the Viennese episode is concerned, Eichmann’s preposterous claim to have saved hundreds of thousands of Jewish lives, which was laughed out of court, finds strange support in the considered judgment of the Jewish historians, the Kimches: ‘Thus what must have been one of the most paradoxical episodes of the entire period of the Nazi regime began: the man who was to go down in history as one of the arch-murderers of the Jewish people entered the lists as an active worker in the rescue of Jews from Europe.’"—H. Arendt, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil, Viking, New York, (1963), pp. 55-56; in the revised 1964 edition at pp. 60-61.
Zionist Jews around the World delighted in the rise of the Nazis and celebrated the Nazis’ Jewish-inspired segregationist laws. This fact was recorded in Eichmann and Hagen’s own reports,
“Nationalist Jewish circles expressed their great joy over the radical German policy towards the Jews, as this policy would increase the Jewish population in Palestine, so that one can reckon with a Jewish majority in Palestine over the arabs in the foreseeable future."—K. Polkehn, “The Secret Contacts: Zionism and Nazi Germany, 1933-1941″, Journal of Palestine Studies, Volume 5, Number 3/4, (Spring-Summer, 1976), pp. 54-82, at 74; citing “RFSS film roll 411″.
Jewish author Emil Ludwig (b. Emil Cohn) stated that,
“Hitler will be forgotten in a few years, but he will have a beautiful monument in Palestine. You know the coming of the Nazis was rather a welcome thing. So many of our German Jews were hovering between two coasts; so many of them were riding the treacherous current between the Scylla of assimilation and the Charybdis of a nodding acquaintance with Jewish things. Thousands who seemed to be completely lost to Judaism were brought back to the fold by Hitler, and for that I am personally very grateful to him."—M. Steinglass, “Emil Ludwig before the Judge", American Jewish Times, (April, 1936), p. 35; as quoted in: L. Brenner, Zionism in the Age of the Dictators, Chapter 6, Croom Helm, London, L. Hill, Westport, Connecticut, (1983), p. 59.
Chants For Teddy Teacher To Be Shot
Updated:13:24, Friday November 30, 2007
Thousands of people are marching in Khartoum calling for British teacher Gillian Gibbons to be executed.
Ms Gibbons was jailed for 15 daysThe 54-year-old has been jailed for insulting Islam in Sudan after allowing her pupils to name a teddy bear Mohammed but the crowds say her 15-day sentence is too lenient.
The protesters gathered outside the presidential palace carrying knives and sticks, chanting “shame on the UK” and “kill her by firing squad” from loudspeakers.
Local journalist Rob Crilly told Sky News he understood that a Sufi sect within the country had called for the demonstration and he spotted the sect’s green flags among the crowds.
He saw protesters “passing their fingers across their throats” and newspapers with her picture on the front page being burned as they chanted “no one lives who insults the Prophet".
Mr Crilly said he was forced to get out as the situation was “turning nasty".
Mrs Gibbons escaped conviction on a more serious charge of inciting hatred, for which she could have faced 40 lashes or six months in prison.
She is thought to be serving her term at a women’s prison near the capital, Khartoum, before being deported to the UK.
Britain has expressed “in the strongest terms” its concern at the verdict and Foreign Secretary David Miliband summoned the Sudanese ambassador. He also spoke to the Sudanese Acting Foreign Minister.
Britain has expressed “in the strongest terms” its concern at the verdict and Foreign Secretary David Miliband summoned the Sudanese ambassador. He also spoke to the Sudanese Acting Foreign Minister.
The Foreign Office said earlier they were seeking “swift resolution of this issue” and maintain Mrs Gibbons is guilty of nothing more than a simple misunderstanding.
During her sentencing, UK consular staff were denied access to the court and riot police surrounded the building while the media were barred from entering.
School director Robert Boulos called the verdict “very fair” adding: “She could have had six months and lashes and a fine and she only got 15 days and deportation.”
The school would not appeal against the decision, he added.
Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari, secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said he was “appalled” at the decision to convict her.
S.Africa: White Woman fights 2 Hijackers & lives: I looked death in the eye & survived
Date Posted: Thursday 29-Nov-2007
[This white woman was aided by a black woman and a Police Reservist. This is amazing. It is good if women scream - it helps draw attention to their plight. This is pretty amazing.
Nice going… of course fighting back can kill you. But, where possible one must try. This woman was really close to death. Very nice!!! The hijackers are now DEAD - so we don’t need to worry about the Criminal INJUSTICE system letting them go free.)
‘I looked death in the eye and survived’
November 29 2007 at 05:48AM
By Shaun Smillie
Elmarie Wypkema had milliseconds to live. The would-be hijacker she was grappling with had managed to get the better of her and placed the barrel of his 9mm pistol to her neck.
But he never got the chance to pull the trigger - he was shot dead by an off-duty Fairland police station reservist.
It was the cool head and crack shooting of the unnamed reservist on Wednesday that saved Wypkema and left two hijackers dead in the carpark of the Fir Drive Centre in Northcliff, Johannesburg.
‘Bullet shells were hitting my legs’
Spent handgun shells scattered around Wypkema’s red Porsche, and a shattered shop window told of the vicious gunfight that raged moments after she, her friend Elsbe Annandale and her daughter Daniella were approached by the two armed men.
“I was going to give Daniella a lift home, when all of a sudden this man was by my side wearing gloves.
“He said ‘Give me your f***ing ring’.
“Elsbe and I kicked and hit him,” said Wypkema.
Agnes Majola, who works at the centre, saw the two men approach the women.
‘All I can do is thank the police’
One grabbed Annandale’s arm and pulled it behind her back, putting a gun to her side.
“I started to scream,” said Majola.
Wypkema and her attacker began wrestling and they fell to the ground. Annandale, meanwhile, was able to break away and began to scream for help.
This alerted the middle-aged police reservist who was at an Italian restaurant, about 20m away.
The second would-be hijacker had climbed into Wypkema’s Porsche and was trying to start the car.
Police spokesperson Superintendent Lungelo Dlamini said the reservist first challenged the man in the car, who shot at him.
The policeman returned fire, hitting the man in the upper body.
Said Annandale: “I was behind a pillar, my daughter was hiding behind a car… (ejected) bullet shells were hitting my legs.
“The policeman came around the car and that was when he saw Elmarie wrestling with the hijacker.”
Wypkema said her attacker must have seen the reservist, because he turned and pointed the gun at him.
“After he was shot, he fell off me.”
The 9mm pistol that nearly ended Wypkema’s life lay next to one of the dead men. Both attackers wore gloves.
The men’s modus operandi was unusual, said Dlamini.
“Usually hijackers don’t target such luxury vehicles, normally they prefer BMWs and VW Golfs. We will investigate to see if they have been involved in any other crimes.”
He said the gloves were probably used to prevent fingerprint contamination of the crime scene.
Two 9mm pistols were recovered.
Several witnesses said the two men - believed to be in their 30s - were part of a gang of at least five who arrived shortly before the hijacking attempt.
Police couldn’t confirm this.
Witnesses also pointed to a maroon-coloured car parked awkwardly in the car park, with its lights on.
They claimed the men arrived in the vehicle.
Dlamini said the driver of the car was detained for routine questioning but “gave a responsible answer as to why he was there, and was released".
Asked for the name of the police reservist, Dlamini said: “We are not going to release the name of the reservist as he has yet to give a statement.”
Wypkema and Annandale had the last word - and the highest praise for their saviour.
“All I can do is thank the police for their rapid response,” said Wypkema.
What Started The French Riots?
The Official Story
Two teenagers on a motorcycle were killed in a crash with a police car.
Anger focused on police, with residents claiming that officers left the scene of Sunday’s crash without helping the boys – a claim officials cast doubt on but which the police were investigating.
Police investigators say the teens ignored traffic rules and crashed into the police vehicle, and that the motorbike they were riding was unregistered and thus not authorized for use on French roads. Neither of the boys – ages 15 and 16 – was wearing a helmet as required.
The internal police oversight agency opened an inquiry to probe whether the officers failed to help the teenagers and whether manslaughter charges should be filed. An alcohol test showed that neither of the two officers had been drinking, police said.
Police’s Second Story
The motorcycle hit them on the side
Police Have A Third Version
Police now say the motorcycle was stolen, there was a high speed chase, and the cops accidentally hit the kids.
The Eyewitnesses Story
But local youths have said the police car’s stoved-in bonnet suggests it rammed the teenagers.
This Is Stupid
If two cops hit some kids on a motorcycle the first thing they do is call an ambulance. Everyone confirms the police ran away, but why would they need to run? Not only do you have two dead kids, but you have that ‘Rat Faced’ Sarkozy itching to clobber these Muslims.
Klansman David Duke not welcome in Spain
Thursday, November 29, 2007
By: Silvio Rodrigues
Former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard and vicious racist David Duke sparked outrage in Spain while touring to promote his anti-Semitic new book, “Jewish supremacism: my awakening to the Jewish question.”
His tour was an affront to all workers. In a racist attack against immigrants coming to Spain, Duke remarked that “Spain is suffering the greatest threat to its people’s heritage and freedom since the Moorish invasion of 711.”
A group of intellectuals, journalists and politicians filed a complaint against Duke before the Catalan High Court, citing the Spanish Criminal Code’s ban against actions that could “incite discrimination, hatred or violence against groups or associations for racist, anti-Semitic reasons.”
Duke’s hosts included the Center for National Democratic Studies and the Spanish far-right political parties National Alliance and National Democracy.

Nazi archives finally made public
Public has access to concentration camp records after more than 60 years
Archive’s index refers to 17.5 million people in its 16 linear miles of files
Until now only available to trace the missing and help with compensation claims
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) – After more than 60 years, Nazi documents stored in a vast warehouse in Germany were unsealed Wednesday, opening a rich resource for Holocaust historians and for survivors to delve into their own tormented past.
The archive’s index refers to 17.5 million people in its 16 linear miles of files.
The treasure of documents could open new avenues of study into the inner workings of Nazi persecution from the exploitation of slave labor to the conduct of medical experiments. The archive’s managers planned a conference of scholars next year to map out its unexplored contents.
The files entrusted to the International Tracing Service, an arm of the International Committee of the Red Cross, have been used to find the fate of missing persons or document atrocities to support compensation claims. The U.S. government also has referred to the ITS for background checks on immigrants it suspected of lying about their past.
Inquiries were handled by the archive’s 400 staff members in the German spa town of Bad Arolsen. Few outsiders were allowed to see the actual documents, which number more than 50 million pages and cover 16 linear miles of gray metal filing cabinets and cardboard binders spread over six buildings.
On Wednesday, the Red Cross and the German government announced that the last of the 11 countries that govern the archive had ratified a 2006 agreement to open the files to the public for the first time.
“We are there. The doors are open,” said ITS director Reto Meister, speaking by telephone from the Buchenwald concentration camp where he was visiting with a delegation of U.S. congressional staff members.
Survivors have pressed for decades to open the archive, unhappy with the minimal responses – usually in form letters – from the Red Cross officials responding to requests for information about relatives.
Albums cataloging Nazi-looted art presented to National Archives
“We are very anxious,” said David Mermelstein, 78, an activist for survivors’ causes in Miami, Florida, who wants to scour the files for traces of his two older brothers whom he last saw as he passed through a series of concentration camps.
“Now I hope we will be able to get some information. We have been waiting, and time is not on our side,” said the retired businessman.
The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington and the Yad Vashem Memorial in Jerusalem began receiving digital copies of the entire archive in August, allowing survivors and historians more access points.
Izzy Arbeiter, 82, the head of a survivor’s organization in the area of Boston, Massachussetts, said he hoped to go to the museum next month to browse the files.
“My goodness, I don’t know where I would start, there are so many things I am interested in,” he said. “The history of my family, of course. My parents. One of my brothers is missing. We never knew what happened to him.”
Yad Vashem said the opening of the archive was “a breakthrough” for survivors and others.
“Our understanding and knowledge of the personal story of the Holocaust will be deepened,” said Yad Vashem’s chairman Avner Shalev.
The records are unlikely to change the general story of the Holocaust and the Nazi era, probably the most intensely researched 12-year period of the 20th century.
But its depth of detail and original documentation will add texture to history’s worst genocide, and is likely to fuel a revival of academic interest in the Holocaust.
Among its files, seen by The Associated Press during repeated visits to Bad Arolsen in the last year, are the list of deportees from the Netherlands to Auschwitz on which Anne Frank’s name appears, the list of employees of Oskar Schindler’s factory who were sheltered from death, medical records showing the number of lice on the heads of prisoners, the list of inmates evacuated by the Nazis from the Neuengamme labor camp who later died on prisoner boats mistakenly bombed by the British air force.
Defying its orderly appearance, the archive is a labyrinth of paper that has never been organized by a historian or even by a professionally trained archivist. Its main database comprises 50 million entries of names, often duplicated in different spellings, referring to 17.5 million victims of Nazi persecutions.
The Bad Arolsen facility, which has received 50 applications this month alone from researchers and institutions seeking to examine the archive, has opened a visitors room with 10 computer terminals to enable searches of files that have been scanned. But less than half of the 50 million pages have been digitized and are available on computer.
Though the archives are now open to the public, Erich Oetiker, the ITS deputy director, said anyone seeking specific information would need professional assistance and all visitors are asked to make an appointment in advance.
While it is not set up to receive unannounced visitors off the street, he said, “we will refuse nobody, but we have very limited staff to provide support.” Guided tours are also available.
Visitors have to show ID and cannot access a special category of documents – correspondences between the ITS and private or official inquirers that are less than 25 years old. Researchers must sign a waiver stating that they are personally responsible for respecting privacy laws.
The ITS gets about 700 requests each month for information about relatives, and has not yet cleared away a backlog of inquiries that reached nearly half a million a few years ago.
The Tracing Service, the Washington museum and Yad Vashem intend to hire new staff to help to ferret out specific documents.
“The challenge now is organizing the material in such a way that people can easily find what they want and what they need,” said Paul Shapiro, director of the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the Washington museum.
The museum took the first step by creating a database to search an inventory of more than 21,000 collections of documents, each ranging a few pages to thousands.
Allied forces began collecting the documents even before the end of the war, and eventually entrusted them to the Red Cross. The archive has been governed since 1955 by a multinational commission that normally met once a year.
Access to the archives had been closely guarded by Red Cross officials who viewed requests for academic information as a distraction from what they saw as their humanitarian task of answering requests about individuals.
In 2001 the State Department, urged on by the Holocaust museum, began pushing the 11-member governing commission to open the doors to the rapidly dying survivor population and for research.
The decision was adopted in May 2006, but it took 19 months to complete the required ratification process.
Nazi Hunt Announced in Argentina
Jewish Human Rights Group Launches Four-Nation Nazi Hunt in South America
By JEANNETTE NEUMANN Associated Press Writer
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina Nov 27, 2007 (AP)
Share A Jewish human rights group launched a “last chance” hunt for surviving Nazis in South America on Tuesday, hoping to track down perpetrators of genocide before they die of old age.
“The passage of time in no way diminishes the guilt of the perpetrators,” said Efraim Zuroff, director of the Israeli Simon Wiesenthal Center as he announced the campaign.
The No. 2 Nazi on the center’s most-wanted list is Dr. Aribert Heim, who is believed to be in either Chile or Argentina, Zuroff said. “The whole program would be worth it just if we found Heim.”
The Wiesenthal Center is offering a $460,000 reward for information leading to the capture and prosecution of Heim, who it says worked as a “doctor” in three concentration camps, injecting the drug phenol directly into the hearts of Jews and other prisoners to kill them. The Austrian and German governments put up part of the reward money.
Heim’s daughter is currently living in Chile, Zuroff said, and the former Nazi doctor continues to maintain a bank account in Germany containing more than $1.5 million.
If alive, Heim, known as “Doctor Death,” would be 93 years old.
“I’m sure, God forbid, that if someone murdered your grandmother, and we found that murderer 60 years later, it wouldn’t very much matter to you if that person was 70, 80 or 90,” Zuroff said.
“All of the people who committed these crimes murdered someone’s grandmother or grandfather, father or mother, son or daughter,” he added.
“Operation: Last Chance” was first launched in 2002 in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
According to an annual report released earlier this year by the Wiesenthal Center, there are 1,018 ongoing investigations of Nazi war criminals in 14 countries. The yearlong period ending March 31 saw 21 convictions, primarily in Italy, a statistic that is “considerably higher than in past years,” Zuroff said.
Many Nazi war criminals fled to South America, especially to Argentina, after World War II.
In November 1995, former Nazi Capt. Erich Priebke was extradited from Argentina to Rome, where at 93 he is serving a life sentence for his role in the massacre of 335 Italian civilians in 1944.
Priebke had lived peacefully for decades in the Patagonia mountain town of San Carlos de Bariloche, where he was found and interviewed in 1994 by Sam Donaldson for the ABC News program “Prime Time Live.”
The most famous case was the 1960 capture in Buenos Aires of SS Col. Adolf Eichmann, the so-called architect of Adolf Hitler’s final solution to exterminate Europe’s Jews. Eichmann was hanged in 1962 in Israel, after a trial that led journalist Hannah Arendt to coin the term “the banality of evil.”
Philadelphia blacks launch anti-crime street patrols
PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Philadelphia’s black community on Tuesday launched civilian street patrols aimed at curbing the highest murder rate among major American cities.
In an experiment being watched by at least five other U.S. cities, 32 men in two groups spent the early evening hours walking the streets of South Philadelphia to deter street crime in one of the city’s most dangerous areas.
Organizers said the groups were the “vanguard.” More than 10,000 men have volunteered to become a regular presence in crime hot spots, and to provide advice and professional services to the young men who make up about 85 percent of the city’s shooting victims.
The initiative, called “10,000 Men: It’s a New Day,” responds to a sharp rise in street violence that caused 406 murders last year, the highest in nine years. National media now refer to the “City of Brotherly Love’ as “Killadelphia.” So far this year, there have been 368 homicides.
Sulayman Muhammad, a 51-year-old father of seven who led one of Tuesday’s street patrols, said he signed up because he feared for the safety of his children and his elderly mother on neighborhood streets.
He said the unarmed patrols, which have no powers of arrest, have a better chance of curbing violence than police because the volunteers work in their own communities and know many of the young people who deal drugs and pull guns.
“If they are tempted to do something, they know there’s 100 eyes looking at them,” said Muhammad, who has lived in South Philadelphia all his life.
Flyers handed out by the patrolmen to the few people on the streets offered information on who to contact for advice on finding jobs, starting a business, obtaining financial services and seeking accommodation.
Carolyn Sapp, 59, passing with two children, said the patrols offered a chance to stop the killing that has scarred the neighborhood where she has lived for more than 50 years.
“It’s wonderful that they are out there, to keep young men from killing each other,” she said. “They are going to respect it. It’s about saving lives.”
But Juan Espinal, 20, who works in a corner store, was not convinced. “You can’t change everybody’s minds,” said Espinal, whose store was recently robbed of $1,000.
Spokesman Norm Bond said the initiative aimed in the long to provide strong male role models for young men who often lack them, and to offer them marketable skills that will deter them from street crime.
“But the first priority is to stop the bleeding,” he said.
Lakota cancels play after protest
Original title, long unused, included slur
LIBERTY TWP. - A widely performed school play has been canceled by Lakota officials after a recent meeting with a local NAACP official.
The internationally acclaimed play - Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians” - was to be performed by students at Lakota East High School this weekend.
But Gary Hines, president of the local NAACP branch, recently complained to Lakota officials that the play, based on Christie’s 1939 mystery novel, was inappropriate for a school production.
Hines said the book’s original title and cover illustration used for its initial publishing that year in England was a racial slur toward blacks and included a cover illustration of a black person and a hangman’s noose.
“The original title was ‘Ten Little (N - - - - - -),’ and it is important to say that because that was the actual title,” Hines said Monday.
The title of the international bestseller was widely changed after 1939, and school theater productions in America have performed the murder mystery play as either “Ten Little Indians” or “And Then There Were None” for decades since.
Hines claims that a lack of racial diversity among Lakota’s students and teachers allowed the play to be chosen despite the history surrounding its original title.
“It’s a lack of diversity knowledge on their part. Diversity is not a way of life in Lakota,” Hines said.
But Hines, who operates GPH Consultants - a diversity training company - in West Chester Township, said that despite his strong protest, it was Lakota officials’ idea to cancel the play in response to his complaints.
Jon Weidlich, spokesman for Butler County school district, said subsequent discussions - after district officials met with Hines earlier this month - among students and staff at Lakota East High School led to the decision to cancel the play.
“After learning of the play’s origins and the hurt that it caused, we had hoped to use the performances as a way to create a discussion about diversity of all kinds in our community. However, students and staff continued to raise issues, and it was quickly obvious that bad feelings about the play were much more widespread and strong than originally thought. The best action seemed to be to switch to a different play,” Weidlich said.
Keith Kline, Lakota East principal, said: “Certainly, it was a tough decision but one that needed to be made.
“Doing the play now is not a way to promote the respectfulness we are trying to promote.”
But Joan Powell, president of the Lakota Board of Education, criticized Hines, whose local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People includes Liberty and West Chester townships, Hamilton and Fairfield.
Powell said Hines has a history of making racial accusations against Lakota schools with his personal financial interests sometimes coming into play.
In 2002, Hines accused Lakota schools of widespread, systemic racism and recommended that more than 2,000 Lakota employees be required to enroll in diversity and cultural sensitivity training similar to what was offered by his company. He promised to compile a report months later detailing his accusations against the schools but never produced a document.
Hines, however, has continued to allege racism in the school district.
Most recently in a Nov. 20 e-mail to Powell and other Lakota school board members, he wrote: “Given the history of the district, anything short of involving the NAACP in planning, developing, and executing a systemic approach to diversity is not acceptable and certainly not good enough for the district’s students, faculty, and staff.”
Powell countered that “Gary Hines has a certain vested interest in district’s diversity since he has approached us many times in the past about providing that service.”
She disagrees with the administration’s decision to cancel the play.
“I’m concerned about censorship, and I’m concerned about the message it sends to other student productions that we are now in the business of censorship,” Powell said.
Lakota East senior Luke Null, who has rehearsed since September to perform as one of the lead characters, said “pressure from the local NAACP canceled the play.”
“I read the play as part of a class in the ninth grade. There are no racial undertones in it at all, and we weren’t putting on the play under it’s original name from 1939. We were putting on the play under another name,” Null said. He and other theater students are now scrambling to find another play to perform some time early in 2008.
“Some of our First Amendment rights were censored. The race card is a pretty strong card,” he said.
30% of Florida’s immigrants are illegal
WASHINGTON - About 30 percent of the nearly 3.5 million immigrants living in Florida are in the country illegally, the Center for Immigration Studies said in a report released today.
Based on “the latest data collected by the Census Bureau,” the report said that the state has one of the fastest-growing immigrant populations. It said that 29 percent of the state’s foreign-born population - slightly more than 1 million people - are illegal immigrants.
The influx of immigrants into Florida reflects the national trend, the report showed. The nation’s immigrant population - legal and illegal - reached a record 37.9 million in 2007.
Surfboard migrants with toy paddles risk all in futile quest to reach Europe
Dragging their belongings behind them in a tyre, three African immigrants risk their lives trying to reach Europe on a windsurfing board.
Strong winds and 10ft waves failed to deter the desperate trio from attempting the unconventional crossing of the Strait of Gibraltar.
Only an early-morning ferry linking Tarifa in southern Spain with Tangier in Morocco saved them from becoming another statistic.
All three of the 29-year-olds had been paddling the fibreglass board but one slipped off moments after passengers spotted them.
He was already suffering hypothermia when he was plucked from the freezing sea.
The men told rescuers they had set out on their 20-mile crossing several hours before - but they were still close to the Moroccan coast because their plastic oars proved futile against the powerful currents.
Last night, they were facing fines and jail after being returned to Morocco and handed to police.
Miguel Marin, a passenger on the hydrofoil ferry that rescued them, said: “The men were numb with cold when we reached them.
“One of them refused to board the ferry at first and had to be persuaded by crew who spoke Arabic.”
Officials fear many of the thousands of Africans who try to reach Spain illegally each year die in the process, but there is no way of knowing exactly how many.

Northern suburbs have history of Klan rallies, burning crosses
By ROBERT MARCHANT
THE JOURNAL NEWS
The burning cross casts a long shadow over the racial landscape of American history.
Like the noose, it symbolizes a weapon in the arsenal of racial oppression that aimed to instill fear and terror. Like the noose, which has made widespread appearances around the country in recent months, it carries an aura of violence with which it was closely entwined in the past.
And while the reappearance of the symbols has been unaccompanied by an upsurge in racial violence, the strong feelings they generate have yet to recede.
“Cross-burnings and nooses - we’re going back in history,” said John Thorp, an anthropologist who runs the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University in Michigan.
He sees a dark chapter of the American past whenever these incidents occur, one of lynchings and racial violence associated with the Ku Klux Klan.
“The Klan, to promote white supremacy, adopted a whole series of rituals, cross-burning being one of them. Lynching was a particularly potent form of terrorist activity, to intimidate. Those images are still potent as symbols today. Most people don’t know the detailed history of it, though African-Americans are much more aware of it,” Thorp said.
The preferred symbol of a hooded mob that called itself the Invisible Empire, cross-burnings have been a source of controversy and anguish in Westchester on many occasions in the past.
Following a revival of the KKK in the 1920s after a long dormancy, cross-burnings were a regular feature of life in the region. Many of the earlier cross-burnings in the Klan era targeted Catholic institutions: St. John’s Cemetery in Yonkers and St. Patrick’s Church in Armonk, where a new chapel was being built, were targeted by racial arsonists in the mid-1920s. The Maryknoll Seminary in Ossining was vandalized with paint bearing the KKK insignia in 1925.
Vast gatherings of Klansmen and women were held at a farm three miles outside of Peekskill in the town of Cortlandt from the mid-1920s into the 1930s. Press accounts from the period indicate that as many as 10,000 to 20,000 Klan sympathizers from all over New York state attended, with large crosses, 20 feet tall, lit aflame as part of the events.
One rally in 1928 ended in a near-riot when about 80 Klansmen in full regalia drove to Verplanck, a largely Irish Catholic community, and were met with a torrent of bottles, eggs, rocks and fists. In 1936, the Cortlandt Town Board passed a law against cross-burnings, in reaction to the lobbying by a Catholic priest from Verplanck.
Most of the cross-burnings were targeted at groups, but the menacing spectacle could be glaringly specific. In 1930, a cross was burned on the front lawn of Errold Collymore, a dentist from Barbados who broke the color barrier in White Plains by buying a house in a white neighborhood. Relatives of Collymore, who died in 1970, recounted how he went out to document the burning cross in his pajamas, a camera in one hand, a rifle in the other
Rich Germany Faces Up to Child Poverty Problem
Germany’s children are poorer than they should be – this is the conclusion that study after study has come to. Politicians in Berlin are beginning to address the problem, but the hurdles remain huge.
One in four children under the age of 15 in Germany live in poverty.
The outrage last week was immediate. How could a five-year-old girl starve to death? In Germany, no less? And that, one week after social workers had visited her home near the northern German city of Schwerin?
That, though, is exactly what happened, with the parents of little Lea-Sophie neglecting their child for weeks until she eventually died last Wednesday. Since then, pundits and politicians have been demanding reforms in the way the state looks after children, with German Family Minister Ursula von der Leyen calling for a better system to assist families in need.
“It starts with helping families find midwives to accompany the pregnancy,” the Christian Democrat minister said in an interview with the magazine Super Illu. “Later, it is important that children are sent to kindergarten and that unemployed parents receive the necessary help in finding jobs.”
Lea-Sophie didn’t just die because her family was poor. There were clearly other factors at play in her parents ultimately failing to give her the care she needed. But last week’s headline – and von der Leyen’s plea to help unemployed parents – was just the latest in a series of stories drawing attention to the plight of children in Germany. It has become increasingly apparent that this wealthy country has a growing problem with child poverty.
According to statistics released by the German Society for the Protection of Children ,some 2.6 million children in Germany – one in six – live in poverty. Among children under 15, the percentage grows to one in four. Even more worrying, the number of children supported by Hartz IV – the new, less-generous welfare package that took effect at the beginning of 2005 – has doubled since 2005, while at the same time an economic upswing has seen a significant drop in unemployment. According to the report, child poverty in Germany has risen 16 times in the last four decades.
“Material poverty doesn’t necessarily lead to such acts,” says Kristina Lurse, who works for child protective services in the eastern German state of Brandenburg, of Lea-Sophie’s long-term neglect by her parents. “But Hartz IV may contribute to people feeling that they have no future.”
It used to be that German welfare recipients got extra allowances for children’s clothes, school supplies, Christmas gifts and even cash to fix the washing machine if it broke down. Two and a half years ago, those handouts were slashed. Now, families get €208 per child per month and a few more euros once kids reach 14. The welfare reforms introduced by Hartz IV have been credited with lowering unemployment and boosting the economy. But according to Anne Thome, a counselor working for a state funded program in the Berlin district of Neukölln, it’s far from enough for families.
Looking at the Bottom of the Earning Scale
“I have clients who take their kids out of kindergarten because they can’t cover the cost of the meals,” she says. “Forget about birthday presents or going to the zoo. These families can’t afford to put a decent breakfast on the table.”
It is a trend not uncommon (more…) to rich countries: The prosperous grow wealthier while the underclass grows and becomes relatively poorer. Often, it is children who suffer the brunt of the inequality. Germany has long tried to reverse the trend and spends over €100 billion per year on family programs, according to Viktor Steiner, an economist at Berlin’s Free University. But still, the poor have not been able to catch up. “If poverty is measured in relative terms,” says Steiner, “then a general increase in living standards may well lead to more poverty.”
When it comes to child poverty, Germany is far from the worst in the industrialized world. Ranked 11th in an annual survey by the United Nations’ child advocacy organ UNICEF, Germany still comes in well ahead of US and UK, both at the bottom of the 21 countries listed. Still, with the results of the 2005 welfare reform just now becoming apparent, the country is taking a closer look at the bottom of the earning scale.
Indeed, one of the biggest debates facing Chancellor Angela Merkel’s governing coalition – which pairs the conservatives with the Social Democrats – has been that of introducing a minimum wage in the country. With many jobs lacking a legally anchored minimum wage, a broad class of working poor has emerged. Social worker Thome, for example, who only works part time, says that she actually earns less than many of the welfare recipients she counsels.
Demonstrating a desire to prevent kids from falling even further behind has become an easy way to score points for politicians in Berlin. In July, a program to up the amount of money the government provides needy families went into effect. The €200 million plan looks to give money to those families that would fall below the poverty line were they to have kids. Still, some 80 percent of applicants for the fund are rejected because of the extremely selective criteria associated with the program.
Family Minister von der Leyen has consistently been the most vocal advocate of helping German families raise children, and she calls the child poverty situation in Germany “shameful.” Her focus has been that of giving German moms and dads the freedom to go to work, and has pledged the creation of 500,000 more nursery spots for toddlers. She is particularly interested in helping a growing number of single parents enter Germany’s traditionally child-unfriendly workplace.
The benefits of such a move could be double: Studies have linked early childhood education to better performance at school later on. But even here, Germany has significant hurdles, with the education system here having been blasted by the United Nations earlier this year for solidifying social inequality. The UN Special Rapporteur on education Vernor Muñoz Villalobos lampooned Germany’s system of separating children into university track schooling or vocational training as early as primary school. Results from the PISA student assessment test conducted by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) showed that children of well-educated parents were over four times more likely to go to the university-track schools than children from families of skilled laborers.
Short End of the Stick
“If we didn’t have money,” says Christine Schmidt, a psychologist married to a human resources executive “our daughter would end up at a special school.” Her daughter, Pia, is 10 and borderline dyslexic according to state test scores. Because Pia isn’t severely dyslexic, though, her special training isn’t covered by the state. Her parents shell out €325 per month so she can catch up to the rest of her peers. “If we were poor, she would never learn to read properly.”
It’s not only in education where poor kids get the short end of the stick. A study by the Robert Koch Institute showed that poorer kids get sick more often, due to bad nutrition. “Breakfast in most of these families is a slice of that cheap white bread you buy at Aldi that doesn’t have anything in it to begin with,” says Thome.
Heinz Hilgers, the president of German Society for the Protection of Children argues that it is nearly impossible to give children a healthy diet with the small amount of money provided by Hartz IV. The Robert Koch study also noted a higher degree of psychological and developmental problems amongst poorer kids.
“The poor kids are disadvantaged from day one,” says Thome. “When they start school with those small, cheap bags, everyone, including them, knows that they’re poor.”
SO BETTER GIVE DONATIONS TO GERMAN CHILDREN, THAN TO NI**ER CHILDREN IN AFRICA
Muslim leader cries racism
By TARINA WHITE
The Calgary Sun
The decision to yank a teen soccer player from a match because she was wearing a religious head scarf has outraged a local Muslim leader.
Syed Soharwardy, president of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada, said Safaa Menhem should be permitted on the field wearing a hijab.
“I don’t buy it because a person could also pull a shirt and choke a person. This is not a safety issue. It is just a racist and discriminatory decision against Muslims,” Soharwardy said.
“Her rights should be respected – this is her free choice.”
On Saturday, a senior referee pulled Safaa, 14, a forward on the Chinook Phantoms U16 squad, from a soccer match because he believed the chin strap on her hijab posed a choking risk, said Gary Roy, referee development officer for the Alberta Soccer Association.
Roy said the ref was simply following the rules.
“I can 100% guarantee this is not a religious issue, it’s a safety issue,” he said.
“The options are: Conform the head gear so it becomes safe; remove it and play; or don’t play.”
ADL Battles Internet
By Rev. Ted Pike
Canadian hate laws are now hitting their intended target: Christianity.
On Oct. 26 a 21-year-old Canadian woman, Jessica Beaumont, was fined $1500 for posting online two Bible verses critical of homosexuality. She was also required to pay $3000 to professional complainer Richard Warman who brought charges against her. Her crime? She derisively called him “a Jew.”
Jessica posted these verses, which, of course, could be found on any Bible website: “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.” (Lev.18:22) “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their heads.” (Lev. 20:13)
The court ruled:
“Ms. Beaumont claimed, during her testimony, that she based this comment on her interpretation of a passage in the Bible, adding that she did not care if Jews would be offended by her ideas. However, irrespective of whether she ‘cares’ or not, s.13 of the Act dictates that the repeated communication via the internet of matter that is likely to expose targeted groups to hatred or contempt constitutes a discriminatory practice. Whether the person communicating the matter was in fact its author is immaterial. The mere act of communicating the material or causing its communication attracts liability under this Act.” 1
Beaumont was ordered to never again post Scripture critical of homosexuals or any other specially protected group, including Jews. She faces prison if she disobeys.
Jessica claims Nazi sympathies. Yet that should not distract us from the fact that Bible verses caused her conviction. As the world moves toward hate crimes persecution, hate law enforcers usually select victims with extremist views. They know society will not help these people but will probably rejoice at their conviction! But the free speech rights of every person are diminished by the legal precedents meted against extremists.
Persecution of Biblically based “hate” (i.e., Christianity) is the ultimate goal of B’nai B’rith Canada and the Canadian Jewish Congress, creators of Canada’s federal hate crime law in 1971. In Canada, these extensions of ADL possess a powerful tool: federal law banning internet criticism of Jews and homosexuals. Section 13.1 outlaws communications “likely” to incite hatred or contempt of members of a federally protected group. ADL possesses similar statutory tools banning “cyberhate” in most European countries.
Strategies to End Internet Freedom
But in the U.S., ADL faces stiff First Amendment opposition to censorship. Here they try other strategies to end free speech in America:
1. ADL puts pressure on search engines like Google to filter out websites which criticize Zionism or homosexuality. So far, it has not succeeded. Recently, Google’s Israeli representative,Meir Brand, flatly repulsed ADL requests to ban internet criticism of Zionism. (link to article) ADL has been similarly rebuffed in the United States. This means scores of videos critical of Zionism and homosexuality, including my four, still bring light via the internet into encroaching darkness.
2. Many teens using the internet are victims of online bullies. Through its new program against online bullying, ADL feigns compassion for these young people. What ADL really wants is to link cyber-bullying with cyberhate and gain power to advise government on “protecting” vulnerable teens from criticism of Israel, Jewish control of media or the accuracy of the six-million figure of Holocaust dead.
3. Through privatizing the internet, cable and phone companies sympathetic to ADL may be able to discriminate against, and ultimately help eliminate, “hate sites.” These companies include Verizon and Comcast, headed respectively by ADL/Zionist sympathizers Ivan Seidenburg and Brian Roberts. Jewish recipients of ADL/Wiesenthal “tolerance” awards, they could provide a form of censorship without legislation. (
4. ADL wants to re-define internet free speech as “home-grown terrorism.” Already, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R.1955, designed to set up a federal commission to “eradicate” the “cyber-terrorism” which this bill alleges “streams” from the internet. This primarily alludes to anti-Zionist alternative internet talk radio. The federal commission, if approved by the Senate and the President, will construe politically incorrect speech on the internet as words that hurt, i.e., “verbal violence.” H.R. 1955 says this speech incites extremists to “radicalization,” i.e., acts of violence. Ultimately, as in Canada, such expression, in order to be prosecuted, need only be thought “likely” to cause intimidation of members of federally protected groups.
5. ADL also considers massive propaganda against critics of Israel or homosexuality as a weapon against “cyberhate.” Some ADL cyber-experts, such as Christopher Wolf, head of INACH (ADL’s worldwide “Institute against Cyberhate"), believe education against homophobia and anti-Semitism is the best solution. We should remember that, as we are seeing in Canada, it is not skinheads and Nazis whom the ADL really deplores; it is evangelical Christians. ADL has already smeared Traditional Values Coalition as hateful and implies that other new right websites, such as Focus on the Family and Family Research Council, which “portray gays and lesbians as subhuman in the guise of promoting so-called ‘family values’ ” should be removed from the internet.
By far, ADL’s greatest hope for ending free speech on the Internet is the federal hate crimes bill, now passed by both houses of Congress and awaiting approval or veto by Pres. Bush.
In Canada, ADL/B’nai B’rith persuaded Parliament to pass their hate bill in 1971. It was a small matter a few years later, with arrival of the internet, to also pass Section 13.1, extending it to internet control. The same will happen here if the hate bill becomes law.
Ray of Hope
With both Republicans and Democrats dissatisfied with the National Defense Appropriations Act, H.R. 1585, to which the hate bill is attached, there is a growing inclination within Congress to reject this arms bill and create a new one after the first of the year. Then the hate bill, either as an amendment or on its own, would probably have to be approved again by Congress.
Such approval is certain if new right leaders and the American people remain confident of a Presidential veto and do as little as they did to protest hate bill passage by the Senate on Sept. 27.Betrayed: How New Right Leaders Helped Pass the Hate Bill) Yet if we learn from our mistake and demand the arms and hate bill be voted down, we may yet redeem this second chance to save freedom.
It is unbelievable how close we are to losing liberty! The hate bill, as no other legislation in American history, will accomplish that. Since the arms bill may be overdue five months or longer, primarily through Democratic opposition, this will almost certainly require Pres. Bush, desperate to supply funds for the military, to cancel his promise to veto the hate bill. This means that right now we have no real hope of a Presidential veto.
It is up to you and me, not the President, to save freedom. Call your members of the Senate and House immediately saying: Please reject the National Defense Appropriations Act, HR 1585, with hate bill attached. Don’t vote for any hate crimes legislation.
And, of course, call to God. We face sinister and devious political maneuvers from Democratic leaders which could yet make possible hate bill passage. But God is ready and willing to help save America. That is, if enough Americans are ready and willing to turn from sin and trust in His mercies.

MySpace Teen Breaks Up On ‘Dr. Phil’
Teen Dumps Overseas Romance on TV
GILFORD, Mich. – A Tuscola County teenager who flew to the Middle East last year to be with a man she met on MySpace.com has broken up with him on the “Dr. Phil” show.
Katherine Lester, 18, told Abdullah Jinzawi he was possessive and called her names.
Jinzawi watched on a monitor from the West Bank town of Jericho, where he lives.
Jinzawi denied being verbally abusive during questioning by host Phil McGraw before pulling off his microphone and stepping away from the camera.
Lester developed an online romance in 2005 with Jinzawi. She kept it secret for months before disappearing in June 2006 from her mother’s home in Gilford.
Lester was en route to an Israeli airport a few days later to see Jinzawi.
She was intercepted in Jordan by U.S. authorities, who seized her passport and put her on a flight to the United States.
Lester now back in Mid-Michigan, told Dr. Phil she has a new love interest.
Pigs’ heads staked at Islamic site
November 28, 2007 - 2:18PM
The heads of two pigs have been found on stakes at the site of a proposed Islamic school in Sydney’s south-west.
About 6am today, police were called to the site, on Cawdor Road, Camden, where they found the animal remains and a number of other items, a police spokesman said.
The pig heads had been “elevated off the ground” using stakes, he said.
An Australian flag was also strung up between the stakes, according to AAP.
The police spokesman would not say what the other items left at the site were.
He said he was not aware of any messages being left behind.
The Quranic Society’s plan to build a primary and high school for 1200 students at the Camden site has sparked a strong backlash from residents.
This month about 1000 people attended a meeting to protest against the building of the school.
Police have conducted a forensic examination of the animal remains, but were appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to phone Camden police station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
The police spokesman said he was not aware of any other similar incidents at the site.
Camden Council is expected to make a decision early next year on the society’s proposal to build the school.
Quranic Society spokesman Jeremy Bingham slammed the act as “low'’ and “hurtful'’.
“It’s not representative of anybody, of any Australian - there’s nothing more un-Australian than exhibiting that kind of prejudice,'’ he said.
In 2004, a severed pigs head had been similarly impaled in front of a muslim prayer centre in Annangrove, in Sydney’s north-west, Mr Bingham said.
“This is just some imitative twerp copying what’s been done before at Annangrove three or four years ago - it’s just a copycat bit of nonsense,'’ he said.
The “anti-social behaviour of just one individual'’ would have no impact on the Quranic Society’s bid to have the school approved, Mr Bingham said.
AAP reports: NSW Community Relations Commission chairman Stepan Kerkyasharian said today’s “outrage” revealed what lay behind the opposition to the school.
“This insult and display of hatred is not something any fair-minded Australian would approve of,” Mr Kerkyasharian said in a statement.
“The obsessive hatred of the mindless bigots who perpetrated this outrage is evidenced by their total disrespect of the ultimate symbol of our national pride, the Australian flag.
“Every Australian Muslim would be offended by such a display, especially one involving the Australian flag.”
Mr Kerkyasharian said local residents with legitimate concerns about the impact of the development should condemn the action.
Camden Mayor Chris Patterson said the offensive protest was futile.
“The council will only and can only assess this DA (development application) on planning grounds, nothing else,” Mr Patterson told Macquarie Radio.
“Anything like that which happened last night is not acceptable and will not influence council’s decision.”
The CRC has offered the council its assistance in resolving the community tension.
REALLY UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW DUMB THIS NI**ER GIRL WAS!!!!!!!!!!
Belgium: Black Woman sets herself on Fire to protest Racism
Date Posted: Tuesday 27-Nov-2007
Which racism was she protesting? Was she protesting the “racism” that says all whites are racists and that blacks are never racists? Or was she protesting this too?
The horrifying sight which traumatized shoppers and office workers in the centre of Luxembourg City last week has now been labeled as a protest against racism. The Belgian woman of Congolese origin who set herself alight in the middle of Place d’Armes told witnesses that she was! doing it to protest against racism, moments before she carried out th e desperate act which has left her in hospital fighting for her life.
Maggy Delvaux-Mufu, a mother of three in her forties, alerted several national newspapers late on Tuesday morning last week that she would be burning herself alive on place des Martyrs at 12.45 am, before setting out accompanied by her husband to walk through the centre of town to her macabre rendezvous. The police were alerted and officers were deployed to the Rousegärtchen.
But the woman changed her plan when she came across a group of journalists gathered to cover an event organized by the ‘Movement écologique’ on Place d’Armes, opposite the Cercle municipal. She soaked herself in petrol before confronting the members of the press, announcing that she was about to sacrifice her life to protest against racism. Moments later, she struck a match, turning herself into a human torch in front of hundreds of people.
Delvaux-Mufu’ s husband and passers-by jumped on the burning body, attempting to stifle the flames with coats and jackets. The scene made several people feel unwell and many witnesses who filled the square at lunchtime were traumatized by the woman’s shrieking screams of unimaginable pain. The flames were already extinguished when police, rescue services and the fire brigade arrived at the scene. One person is reported to have vomited after seeing the woman being transported into an ambulance. The events in Place d’Armes have also started a controversy regarding the authorities’ lack of psychological support for witnesses.
Delvaux-Mufu was taken to the Bon Secours hospital in Metz, where she is being treated in a specialized ward for burns and is fighting for her life. Grand Duchess Maria Teresa visited the woman and her family at the hospital last week.
RTL television was the first to run a news flash about the incident on its website on Tuesday afternoon last week. 352 reported the bulletin in its news in brief section, shortly before going to print. Events preceding the incident only came to light later on in the week.
The 42-year-old Belgian citizen and her husband had been facing financial difficulties. They had recently indebted themselves by buying a Citroën garage in Oberwampach, before realizing they were missing the documents that would allow them to set up a business. Delvaux-Mufu wrote a letter to Le Jeudi recounting her story of bureaucratic difficulties and economic despair. “I’m against all forms of violence, but day after day, my family and I have to endure moral violence, discrimination, insults and much more from Mr Juncker’s administration” , she said in the letter published last week.
Money problems had driven the woman to desperately plead her case at the Prime minister’s office early on the same day of the incident. Her threat to burn herself alive on Place des Martyrs after being turned away by the authorities caused government officials to contact the police. A city-wide search was organized, but nobody could foresee the woman would change her plans.’

Racist Violence:Armed Black Mob attacks Peaceful Demonstrating Whites in Holland
Racist Violence: Armed Black Mob attacks Peaceful Demonstrating Whites in Holland
Date Posted: Monday 26-Nov-2007
[Look at these amazing photos from The Netherlands. Peaceful Dutch Patriots are not even allowed to march and protest in their own country! Read the story and be shocked! Look at how these Blacks, who fled their Third World rat holes to live in The Netherlands, are treating the whites who live there.
I wonder if Dutch Nationalism is on the rise? If so… GOOD! Europe is slowly waking up to the dangers of illegal immigration.
Sloterwijk Amsterdam. These Dutch indigenous residents are demonstrating against the moslimisation of their neighbourhood by primarily Moroccan immigrants.
These Dutch patriots were conducting a peaceful anti-violence demonstration in an Amsterdam neighbourhood when they were attacked by these armed thugs from the so-called Antifa-organisation. Police just looked on while the young Dutchmen were assaulted.
The Dutch patriots also recently held a peaceful demonstration against plans to build a mosque in Middelburg in the Zeeland province of the Netherlands. They objected to this ‘alien building’ being placed in such a traditional Dutch-medieval city.
AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands. A planned peaceful demonstration by the Dutch nationalistic People’s Party in Amsterdam-West has been scrapped, the party leadership announced today. The left-wing Parool newspaper describes the NVB party as ‘rightwing-extremists’ however they describe themselves as traditional Dutch patriots who want to defence the traditional democratic rights of Dutch (white) indigenous citizens against black-racists.
The party leadership said Amsterdam mayor Job Cohen wanted to limit their anti violence demo to a small square behind a railway station - but Dutch patriots wanted to demonstrate specifically against the black-racist violence in one specific neighbourhood which is dominated by Moroccans who often torch cars owned by indigenous Dutchmen and attack Dutch women and girls for not wearing head-scarves.
Earlier this month, a (black) Dutch policewoman was forced to shoot a 22-year-old Maroccan Bilal B. at the Sloterwijk police station in self-defence after he had attacked the police station, stabbed another female police officer and then attacked her. The parents claimed that the man was a mental-health patient who escaped from an institution where he had been treated.
Protests erupted in the Moroccan community in Amsterdam during which cars belonging to indigenous Dutch citizens were torched and women were attacked and harassed.
Amsterdam mayor Job Cohentold the NVB leadership during their meeting about the planned protest march by the Dutch patriots, that he feared even more violence from left-wing radicals if they held their march-through in this neighbourhood.
The website of the Dutch patriots – the Nationalistische Volksbeweging –showed that police refuse to protect them in public appearances. During a previous march-through in Amsterdam, and in spite of a very police presence, the group of Dutch protestors were were attacked by a 200-large number of racist-blacks and armed hooligans from the local Ajax soccer club, all of whom had arrived enmasse with a variety of hand-weapons and attacked the peacefully demonstrating Dutch citizens without any provocation.

Sarkozy was ex-Mossad secret agent
A report reveals that French President Nicolas Sarkozy worked for Israeli intelligence for a long time before he was elected president.
French daily Le Figaro has revealed the French leader once worked for the Zionist regime as a sayan, Hebrew for ‘collaborator’.
Ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky says sayans, who perform many roles, are Jewish citizens of other nationalities assisting Mossad.
Le Figaro claimed that French police officials managed to keep secret a letter, which exposed Sarkozy’s past participation in espionage activities for Mossad.
The letter fixed Sarkozy’s alleged spying activities as far back as 1983.
In the immediate aftermath of Le Figaro’s exposé, the Zionist regime’s Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was on a state visit to France to discuss Iran’s nuclear program, which raised more questions about the report.
Analysts believe since Sarkozy took office in May, he has taken every opportunity to pledge his allegiance to the United States and the Zionist regime.
“"Sarko the Sayan"” has also followed in the footsteps of the White House by choosing a hostile approach toward Iran and its peaceful nuclear activities
Israel and Sex Trafficking
November 25, 2007
Dubai is of course not the only place in the Middle East famous for sex-trafficking; it faces stiff competition from Israel. BBC reports, in 2006 ‘the United Nations named Israel as one of the main destinations in the world for trafficked women; it has also consistently appeared as an offender in the annual US State Department’s Trafficking in Persons (Tip) report.’
Marina rarely leaves her two-room home in northern Israel these days. She is in hiding - wanted by the Israeli authorities for being an illegal immigrant, and by the criminal gangs who brought her here to sell her into prostitution.
Marina - not her real name - was lured to Israel by human traffickers.
During the height of the phenomenon, from the beginning of the 1990s to the early years of 2000, an estimated 3,000 women a year were brought to Israel on the false promise of jobs and a better way of life.
“When I was in the Ukraine, I had a difficult life,” said Marina, who came to Israel in 1999 at the age of 33 after answering a newspaper advertisement offering the opportunity to study abroad.
“I was taken to an apartment in Ashkelon, and other women there told me I was now in prostitution. I became hysterical, but a guy starting hitting me and then others there raped me.
“I was then taken to a place where they sold me - just sold me!” she said, recalling how she was locked in a windowless basement for a month, drank water from a toilet and was deprived of food.
MAIN ORIGINS OF WOMEN TRAFFICKED TO ISRAEL
That part of her ordeal only ended when she managed to escape, but the physical and mental scars remain.
Last year, the United Nations named Israel as one of the main destinations in the world for trafficked women; it has also consistently appeared as an offender in the annual US State Department’s Trafficking in Persons (Tip) report.
While this year’s report said Israel was making “significant efforts” to eliminate trafficking, it said it still does not “fully comply with the minimum standards” to do so.
Like Marina, some trafficked women are brought into the country legally, while others are smuggled by Bedouins across the border from Egypt.
In all cases, the traffickers - as many as 20 in the chain from recruitment to sale - take away the women’s passports before selling them on to pimps.
Sometimes the women are subjected to degrading human auctions, where they are stripped, examined and sold for $8,000-$10,000.
Prostitution in Israel is legal, but pimping and maintaining a brothel are not.
The law however is not widely enforced and few brothels are closed down.
In Tel Aviv’s Neve Shaanan district for instance, just a short walk from the city’s five-star tourist hotels, brothels masquerading as massage parlours, saunas and even internet cafes, fill the side streets. One such place even operates opposite the local police station.
There are bars on windows and heavily-built men guard the doors, which are only opened to let customers in and out.
Inside, groups of sullen-looking women sit in dimly-lit rooms, waiting for their next client.
Foreign women fetch the highest prices, with trafficked women forced to work up to 18 hours a day.
For years, the absence of anti-trafficking laws in Israel meant such activity - less risky and often more profitable than trafficking drugs or arms - went unchecked.
“During the first 10 years of trafficking, Israel did absolutely nothing,” said Nomi Levenkron, of the Migrant Workers’ Hotline, an NGO which helps trafficked women and puts pressure on the state to act.
In 2003 we used to find women who were being raped, jailed and under a great amount of violence. In 2007, the situation is completely different.
Women were trafficked into Israel - the first case we uncovered was in 1992 - and not much really happened,” she said. “Occasionally traffickers were brought to trial, but the victims were arrested as well, they were forced to testify, and then they were deported.
In 2000, trafficking for sexual exploitation was made a crime but the punishments were light and its implementation was poor, NGOs say.
It was only after repeated criticism of Israel by the United States - and the threat of sanctions - that authorities began to act.
Investigations into suspected traffickers increased, stiff jail terms were handed down and Israel’s borders were tightened against people smuggling.
Campaigners say things began to change for the better in 2004, when the government opened a shelter in north Tel Aviv for women who had been trafficked for sex.
It marked a change in the way the state perceived them - as victims of a crime rather than accomplices.
There are some 30 women at the Maggan shelter - most from former Soviet states, but also five from China.
“When they come here they are in a bad condition,” said Rinat Davidovich, the shelter’s director. “Most have sexual diseases and some have hepatitis and even tuberculosis. They also have problems going to sleep because they remember what used to happen to them at night,” she said.
“It’s very hard and it’s a long procedure to start to help and treat them.”
Police say their actions have led to a significant drop in the number of women now being trafficked into Israel for sex - hundreds, rather than thousands, a year - and they say the women’s working environment has improved too.
“There is a significant change in the conditions that the women are being held in,” said anti-trafficking police chief Raanan Caspi.
“In 2003 we used to find women who were being raped, incarcerated and suffering violence. In 2007, the situation is completely different - they get paid in most cases and the conditions that they’re in are much more humane.”
But the true picture might not be so clear-cut. Campaigners say increased police activity has also had an adverse effect. Instead of operating openly in brothels, traffickers have become more discreet, plying their trade in private apartments and escort agencies, making the practice more difficult to detect.
“We’ve been keeping tabs on trends, in terms of, for instance, prices of exploitative services,” said Yedida Wolfe, of the Task Force on Human Trafficking.
“Those prices have not gone up, which leads us to believe that the supply of victims has not gone down.
“While government officials are saying that their efforts have drastically cut the number of victims in the country, the NGOs on the scene really don’t feel that’s true.”
Israel might well have turned a corner in its fight against the traffickers, but the battle is far from won.

120 War Vets Commit Suicide Each Week
By Penny Coleman, AlterNet. Posted November 26, 2007.
The military refuses to come clean, insisting the high rates are due to “personal problems,” not experience in combat.
Earlier this year, using the clout that only major broadcast networks seem capable of mustering, CBS News contacted the governments of all 50 states requesting their official records of death by suicide going back 12 years. They heard back from 45 of the 50. From the mountains of gathered information, they sifted out the suicides of those Americans who had served in the armed forces. What they discovered is that in 2005 alone – and remember, this is just in 45 states – there were at least 6,256 veteran suicides, 120 every week for a year and an average of 17 every day.
As the widow of a Vietnam vet who killed himself after coming home, and as the author of a book for which I interviewed dozens of other women who had also lost husbands (or sons or fathers) to PTSD and suicide in the aftermath of the war in Vietnam, I am deeply grateful to CBS for undertaking this long overdue investigation. I am also heartbroken that the numbers are so astonishingly high and tentatively optimistic that perhaps now that there are hard numbers to attest to the magnitude of the problem, it will finally be taken seriously. I say tentatively because this is an administration that melts hard numbers on their tongues like communion wafers.
Since these new wars began, and in spite of a continuous flood of alarming reports, the Department of Defense has managed to keep what has clearly become an epidemic of death beneath the radar of public awareness by systematically concealing statistics about soldier suicides. They have done everything from burying them on official casualty lists in a category they call “accidental noncombat deaths” to outright lying to the parents of dead soldiers. And the Department of Veterans Affairs has rubber-stamped their disinformation, continuing to insist that their studies indicate that soldiers are killing themselves, not because of their combat experiences, but because they have “personal problems.”
Active-duty soldiers, however, are only part of the story. One of the well-known characteristics of post-traumatic stress injuries is that the onset of symptoms is often delayed, sometimes for decades. Veterans of World War II, Korea and Vietnam are still taking their own lives because new PTSD symptoms have been triggered, or old ones retriggered, by stories and images from these new wars. Their deaths, like the deaths of more recent veterans, are written up in hometown newspapers; they are locally mourned, but officially ignored. The VA doesn’t track or count them. It never has. Both the VA and the Pentagon deny that the problem exists and sanctimoniously point to a lack of evidence they have refused to gather.
They have managed this smoke and mirrors trick for decades in large part because suicide makes people so uncomfortable. It has often been called “that most secret death” because no one wants to talk about it. Over time, in different parts of the world, attitudes have fluctuated between the belief that the act is a sin, a right, a crime, a romantic gesture, an act of consummate bravery or a symptom of mental illness. It has never, however, been an emotionally neutral issue. In the United States, the rationalism of our legal system has acknowledged for 300 years that the act is almost always symptomatic of a mental illness. For those same 300 years, organized religions have stubbornly maintained that it’s a sin. In fact, the very worst sin. The one that is never forgiven because it’s too late to say you’re sorry.
The contradiction between religious doctrine and secular law has left suicide in some kind of nether space in which the fundamentals of our systems of justice and belief are disrupted. A terrible crime has been committed, a murder, and yet there can be no restitution, no punishment. As sin or as mental illness, the origins of suicide live in the mind, illusive, invisible, associated with the mysterious, the secretive and the undisciplined, a kind of omnipresent Orange Alert. Beware the abnormal. Beware the Other.
For years now, this administration has been blasting us with high-decibel, righteous posturing about suicide bombers, those subhuman dastards who do the unthinkable, using their own bodies as lethal weapons. “Those people, they aren’t like us; they don’t value life the way we do,” runs the familiar xenophobic subtext: And sometimes the text isn’t even sub-: “Many terrorists who kill innocent men, women, and children on the streets of Baghdad are followers of the same murderous ideology that took the lives of our citizens in New York, in Washington and Pennsylvania,” proclaimed W, glibly conflating Sept. 11, the invasion of Iraq, Islam, fanatic fundamentalism and human bombs.
Bush has also expressed the opinion that suicide bombers are motivated by despair, neglect and poverty. The demographic statistics on suicide bombers suggest that this isn’t the necessarily the case. Most of the Sept. 11 terrorists came from comfortable middle- to upper-middle-class families and were well-educated. Ironically, despair, neglect and poverty may be far more significant factors in the deaths of American soldiers and veterans who are taking their own lives.
Consider the 25 percent of enlistees and the 50 percent of reservists who have come back from the war with serious mental health issues. Despair seems an entirely appropriate response to the realization that the nightmares and flashbacks may never go away, that your ability to function in society and to manage relationships, work schedules or crowds will never be reliable. How not to despair if your prognosis is: Suck it up, soldier. This may never stop!
Neglect? The VA’s current backlog is 800,000 cases. Aside from the appalling conditions in many VA hospitals, in 2004, the last year for which statistics are available, almost 6 million veterans and their families were without any healthcare at all. Most of them are working people – too poor to afford private coverage, but not poor enough to qualify for Medicaid or means-tested VA care. Soldiers and veterans need help now, the help isn’t there, and the conversations about what needs to be done are only just now beginning.
Poverty? The symptoms of post-traumatic stress injuries or traumatic brain injuries often make getting and keeping a job an insurmountable challenge. The New York Times reported last week that though veterans make up only 11 percent of the adult population, they make up 26 percent of the homeless. If that doesn’t translate into despair, neglect and poverty, well, I’m not sure the distinction is one worth quibbling about.
There is a particularly terrible irony in the relationship between suicide bombers and the suicides of American soldiers and veterans. With the possible exception of some few sadists and psychopaths, Americans don’t enlist in the military because they want to kill civilians. And they don’t sign up with the expectation of killing themselves. How incredibly sad that so many end up dying of remorse for having performed acts that so disturb their sense of moral selfhood that they sentence themselves to death.
There is something so smugly superior in the way we talk about suicide bombers and the cultures that produce them. But here is an unsettling thought. In 2005, 6,256 American veterans took their own lives. That same year, there were about 130 documented deaths of suicide bombers in Iraq.* Do the math. That’s a ratio of 50-to-1. So who is it that is most effectively creating a culture of suicide and martyrdom? If George Bush is right, that it is despair, neglect and poverty that drive people to such acts, then isn’t it worth pointing out that we are doing a far better job?
*I say “about” because in the aftermath of a suicide bombing, it is often very difficult for observers to determine how many individual bodies have been blown to pieces.
Rudd to apologise to Aborigines
Mr Rudd praised Mr Howard’s dignity in defeat
Australia’s new government will issue a formal apology to Aborigines for the abuses they suffered in the past, prime minister-elect Kevin Rudd has promised.
Mr Rudd, whose Labor Party swept to power in an election on Saturday, said the apology would come early in his first parliamentary term.
Outgoing Prime Minister John Howard had repeatedly refused to say sorry.
Votes are still being counted in Mr Howard’s constituency, where he faces losing his seat to a former TV host.
Indigenous Australians remain an impoverished minority, with a much lower life expectancy than the rest of the population.
Thousands of Aboriginal children were handed over to white families under Australian government assimilation policies from 1915 to 1969.
Breakdown of election results
The issue continues to be a controversial one among Australians.
Mr Howard held back from offering a full apology to the so-called Stolen Generations, saying the current generation should not feel guilty about mistakes from the past.
Israeli Chabad leaders arrested
Israeli police arrested the leader of the Young Chabad movement.
Yosef Aharonov and three others are accused of embezzlement, tax evasion and money laundering. The arrests and a Nov. 13 raid on the community of Kfar Chabad follow an eight-month investigation by the Israel Tax Authority and the Central District Fraud Squad.
Arkady Gaydamak, an Israeli-Russian billionaire and a potential Jerusalem mayoral candidate, is accused of donating $256,000 to the money-laundering facilities allegedly run out of Kfar Chabad, according to Israel’s Channel 10. He and other prominent businessmen are currently under investigation.
Young Chabad, also known as Lubavitch Youth, is a nonprofit organization and one of the more prominent Chabad institutions in Israel. It has a budget of about $7.7 million a year, including allocations from the Israeli government.
Yosef George Segal, a Chabad employee who was accused more than a year ago by Young Chabad officials of embezzling $4.5 million from the organization, also was arrested.
” Like Chabad-Lubavitch offices everywhere, the Chabad Youth Organization in Israel is fiscally independent. However, its noble social service programs and educational outreach are legendary and a source of pride to the Jewish people everywhere,” read a statement from the umbrella organization of the worldwide Chabad Lubavitch movement.“Clearly, every individual is instructed by the Torah to uphold the laws of his/her land, and this is, of course, a basic principle of Chabad Lubavitch operations.We are confident, therefore, that the authorities will receive full cooperation in their efforts and that, ultimately, the results will be satisfactory
Somalis arrive in Emporia with tuberculosis
Health officials acted quickly as refugees came for meat jobs

Published Sunday, November 25, 2007
EMPORIA — When hundreds of Somali refugees began showing up to work at the meatpacking plant, nurses Lori Torres and Renee Hively were among the first to get to know the exotic, new arrivals.
“We got notified a day in advance that 70 Somalis were being transferred from a (Tyson Foods) plant in Nebraska,” Hively recalled. “That 70 soon grew into 400, seemingly overnight.”

An estimated 750 to 1,000 Somali refugees are living in Emporia, a magnet because of jobs at the Tyson Foods meatpacking plant. Many have latent tuberculosis.
“We literally had droves in our waiting room, waiting to see a public health official,” Torres said.
Torres is the case manager for about 160 Somalis in Emporia who have been diagnosed with latent tuberculosis. Hively is her supervisor at the Flint Hills Community Health Center, which also serves as the Lyon County public health department.
State health officials say the influx of refugees to Emporia could have produced a calamity. Instead, thanks in no small part to Torres and Hively, the situation has been a model for dealing with unforeseen circumstances.
“What could have been an ultimate public health crisis has really just been an increase in public health work,” said Phil Griffin, director of tuberculosis control and prevention for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
Kansas usually has about 3,000 cases of latent tuberculosis a year. “Latent” means the disease isn’t contagious and responds to medication. Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection that most commonly attacks the lungs. In its active state it is communicable and deadly.
It has been largely eradicated in the United States, western Europe and other developed regions. But it remains widespread in Africa and elsewhere around the globe, killing 1.5 million people in 2005, according to the World Health Organization.
Latent TB, if untreated, can become active TB.
Quick and flexible
Before the Somalis began arriving in Emporia, the local health department tracked about 30 latent cases a year. Now Torres manages about 200 cases, about 80 percent of which she said are afflicted Somalis. She also handles the cases of two patients with active TB, one of whom is Somali.
Griffin credits Torres, Hively and Flint Hills’ leaders for their quickness and flexibility in dealing with the surge in tuberculosis cases that hit Lyon County with the arrival of the Somalis, many of whom had spent years in refugee camps before arriving in the United States.
Tyson requires its workers to have at least basic health insurance, so most of the Somalis in Emporia have health insurance, officials said.
Griffin said the number of tuberculosis cases reported in Kansas this year will increase from 8 percent to 10 percent attributable to what is happening in Lyon County. In 2006, about 60 percent of the state’s tuberculosis cases were in foreign-born individuals, he said.
“The scenario that happened in Emporia has been somewhat unique in that it is refugee resettlement activity going on with a particularly large population moving in all at one time,” Griffin said. “But that same scenario could happen anywhere in the state where there is a large employer with any number of refugee groups.”
Griffin said health officials in Emporia are particularly praiseworthy because they immediately recognized there was a surge in tuberculosis cases, determined it was linked to the refugees, and took quick steps to meet their needs instead of sitting back and waiting for the Somalis to figure out how to cope in their new environment.
Most of the Somalis are young men who have spent most or all of their lives in refugee camps. Most have little or no formal education, and many arrived malnourished or with other health problems.
Griffin said Torres had done an extraordinary job gaining the trust of the Somalis, whose culture is conservative, Muslim and patriarchal.
Hively said when tuberculosis cases were less common, each of the department’s nurses divided the case management responsibilities, but with the surge it was decided Torres would take them all, in essence creating a full-time tuberculosis nurse position.
They also persuaded the clinic’s managers to hire a full-time Somali translator.
Jobs at Tyson
Chuck Torres, Lori’s husband, was working as a health nurse at the Tyson Foods beef processing plant when the Somalis arrived. After years in refugee camps with limited skills and poor nutrition, many had trouble adjusting to the rigorous demands of meat plant work.
“Six-foot-one and 110 pounds,” he said, describing some of the young men he saw for pre-employment exams. “They were not really physically wrong for the job, but sometimes they were a little slow to assimilate. I tried to caution them it was hard work. I can see why a lot would develop stress-related illness.”
In February 2006, Tyson closed two of its plants in Nebraska. Among the nearly 1,700 affected workers were the Somali refugees who were offered replacement jobs at the Emporia plant.
In the decades since it was founded, Emporia, first because of the railroad and then because of its meat plant, has been a magnet for immigrants. Mexicans came for the railroad work and a couple of generations later new waves from Mexico, Central America and Southeast Asia came to work at the meat plant.
The Somalis are the most recent and perhaps most exotic wave for this city of about 25,000 people. Not everyone in Emporia has been welcoming. There have been incidents of vandalism and an armed robbery attempt at the Ayan Restaurant, a Somali-owned eatery that also serves as an informal community center for the refugees.
An article posted Nov. 3 on the Emporia Gazette Web site about a state grant to Catholic Community Services to help the Somalis settling in Emporia drew scores of angry, anonymous reader reactions, including this one:
“Emporia is going to be its own 3rd world country before long because of all the damn, bleeding hearts.”
“They came post 9/11. They’re black and they’re Muslim,” Hively said, describing some of the hostility demonstrated toward the Somalis. “Emporia didn’t have many black people before. This is a small town.”
Lori Torres and Hively are involved with the Emporia Refugee Resettlement Alliance, a group that includes representatives from Tyson Foods, the justice system, social service agencies and others working to ease the strains of the influx on the community and the Somalis.
The total Somali population in Emporia is thought to be between 750 and 1,000, and the expectation is that the number will continue to grow as word of jobs spreads to Somali enclaves in Utah, Minnesota, Maine and Ohio.
Somalia has been strife torn and more or less lawless since a civil war began in 1991. Thousands of Somalis fled to neighboring countries and many are still in refugee camps in Kenya.

Holocaust Deniers Debate ‘Free Speech’
A mass of student demonstrators broke into Oxford’s debating society to protest an event featuring far-right leader Nick Griffin and British historian David Irving – both of whom have been convicted in Europe of denying the Holocaust.
Demonstrators outnumbered audience members at the Oxford Union on Monday.
Protesters disrupted a controversial debate at Oxford University on Monday night, throwing eggs, chanting slogans and finally forcing their way into the room where two convicted Holocaust deniers had been invited to discuss free speech.
David Irving, a discredited British historian, and Nick Griffin, political boss of the far-right British National Party, were scheduled to chat with a crowd at the Oxford Union debating society when 30 protesters broke through a cordon of riot police and mounted a sit-down protest. A total of 500 demonstrators – including Jewish and Muslim students – had gathered outside the Union building before the event. “Keep Oxford fascist-free; we will defend democracy,” some of them chanted, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Organizers separated the men into two rooms for safety reasons. The debate was delayed by 90 minutes.
The Oxford Union is a venerable platform for debate at the university, and protesters objected to giving Griffin and Irving so much respectable exposure. Bill Clinton and Mother Theresa have spoken at the Union in the past. Kermit the Frog, however, has also been invited.
“The reason Oxford Union was founded 184 years ago was to promote and defend freedom of speech,” said the union’s president, Luke Tryl, to the British broadcaster Sky News. “It is about an opportunity to challenge David Irving and Nick Griffin.”
He also said, speaking to the BBC, “David Irving came across looking pathetic. He looked weak. The flaws in his arguments about free speech were exposed and I’m pleased that that happened.”
Irving was released on probation this year from an Austrian prison after serving 13 months of a three-year sentence for Holocaust denial, which is a crime in Austria. He had pled guilty to the charges, which stemmed from a speech and an interview in 1989 which both disputed the existence of gas chambers at Auschwitz. Irving in the meantime has recanted that opinion.
But he’s written a number of books defending Adolf Hitler and denying the systematic execution of 6 million Jews by the Nazis. He turned up at the Oxford Union on Monday in the self-assigned role of a martyr – carrying a ball and chain.
Nick Griffin was convicted in 1998 for incitement to racial hatred in the UK for his writing in a BNP publication called “The Rune,” where he referred to the Holocaust as a “Holohoax.” He said in 1998, according to the BBC, “I have reached the conclusion that the ‘extermination’ tale is a mixture of Allied wartime propaganda, extremely profitable lie and latter witch hysteria.”
In the meantime he’s also retreated from this position, and his topics of conversation on Monday, according to the London Times, ranged from immigration to libel law to the public perception of the BNP.
Irving talked about his trial in Austria.
‘Ridiculous and Irresponsible’
Griffin did mention the Nazis, though, in the context of the protesters outside: “This is a mob which would kill,” he said, according to the Times. “… Had they grown up in Nazi Germany they would have made splendid Nazis.”
But Chief Inspector Dennis Evernden said, “The vast majority of protesters were peaceful. A small minority seemed intent on causing problems but police intervention prevented any criminal acts or disorder.”
Ned Temko, chief political correspondent of the Observer newspaper in Britain and a former editor of the Jewish Chronicle, said it was disingenuous of the Oxford Union to invite Griffin and Irving and then pretend it was just about free speech.
“It’s not a question about giving them a platform,” he told the BBC, “it’s about giving them credibility. It’s ridiculous and it’s irresponsible.”
Violence Escalates in Second Night of Paris Riots
At least 77 police officers were hurt in a second night of rioting in Paris’ suburbs. The level of violence has escalated and is now worse than during the 2005 unrest, police say.
Paris’ troubled suburbs saw a second night of rioting Monday, with the escalating violence reportedly now worse than in 2005.
Senior police union official Patrice Ribeiro told reporters Tuesday that at least 77 officers had been injured in Monday’s riots. The violence was now more intense than during the 2005 riots in the suburbs, he said, saying police had been shot at by what he described as “real urban guerillas armed with conventional and hunting weapons.”
Interior Minister Michele Alliot-Marie confirmed that officers had been hit by shotgun pellets and said that six officers had been seriously injured.
On Monday evening, youths rioted in the Paris suburb of Villiers-le-Bel and surrounding areas in what was described as an escalation of riots from the night before (more…), when 20 officers were wounded. Youths set cars and police barricades on fire and threw stones and Molotov cocktails at police. A library was also set ablaze and shops were damaged. Police officers retaliated with tear gas and rubber bullets.
This year’s riots were sparked by the death of two teenagers on a motorcycle who were killed in a collision with a patrol car on Sunday in Villiers-le-Bel. Locals claim the police left the scene of the accident without helping the youths, a charge officials deny. Police claim the teenagers were driving recklessly and at high speed and crashed into the cruiser. Neither youth wore a helmet. The internal police oversight agency is investigating the incident, and initial findings suggest the officers were not responsible for the boys’ deaths.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy, on a visit to China, appealed for calm on Monday, saying he wanted “everyone to calm down and let the justice system determine who was responsible.” Sarkozy was criticized for his hardline approach to the 2005 unrest, when he, in his position as then interior minister, called the rioters “scum” and threatened to clean up the suburbs with a “pressure washer.”
The three weeks of violence in 2005 started when two teenagers died while fleeing police. The riots spread to other French cities, but the economically deprived suburbs around Paris are home to large immigrant populations and many residents complain about police harassment and racial discrimination.

Detroit Police: Mom (Negress) collected welfare in (dead) baby’s name November 26, 2007
The mother of a baby whose skeletal remains were found in a Detroit basement was collecting welfare and food stamps in the child’s name, police said today.
Police are investigating possible welfare charges against Nickella Reid, 24, and her boyfriend Joseph Miller, 27, both of Detroit.
Nearly two years ago, the son of Reid and Miller, Deuntay Miller, died in his parents care. They told police that they tried to cremate 1-year-old Deuntay in a barbecue grill to avoid funeral costs.
But police said Reid has been collecting welfare and food stamps in the name of Deuntay and four other children.
State Department of Human Services spokeswoman Maureen Sorbet confirmed today that Nickella Reid received $822 a month in welfare.
The bizarre discovery turned up Friday as Detroit police investigated injuries to another 1-year-old boy, who turned out to be Deuntay’s brother, police said.
Reid and Miller were arraigned Saturday in 36th District Court in Detroit on charges of first- and second-degree child abuse.
Police and prosecutors are weighing whether to add more charges in connection with the cremated baby.
Details of the 2-year-old death came to light Sunday as detectives continued to investigate the case.
The living 1-year-old suffered burns over one-third of his body. He is in fair condition, police said.
Police said Reid told investigators that Miller, her boyfriend, scalded their son in the kitchen in their home on Lillibridge in Detroit, causing the burns.
Reid then told police of her previous son’s death and directed them to Miller’s sister’s home on Lappin, where Deuntay’s remains had been sealed in the ceiling. Officers from the Violent Crimes Task Force made the discovery Friday.
The parents’ explanations differ as to how Deuntay died, police said. An anthropologist will try to determine the cause of death based on the fragmented bones.
Reid is being held at the Wayne County Jail on a $400,000 bond. Miller’s bond on the child-abuse charges is $700,000, but no bond was set on unrelated drug charges, so he won’t be freed from jail.
Man under suspicion of shaving swastika on dog
BERLIN (Reuters) - German police are investigating a 29-year-old man suspected of shaving banned Nazi symbols into his dog’s fur.
Police in the Bavarian town of Straubing said Thursday they had found the dog with a swastika and the insignia of Hitler’s elite Waffen-SS troops marked on its body.
They made the discovery when the suspect’s ex-girlfriend requested police help to collect her belongings from his apartment because she was afraid of him.
It was not clear if the man, who has not commented on the markings, had shown the dog in public, a police spokesman said.
“That still needs to be proved,” he said. “If he only kept the dog inside the apartment, it wouldn’t be public.”
Public display of Nazi symbols is illegal in Germany. If found guilty, the man faces a jail term of up to three years.
Older white women join Kenya’s sex tourists
Kenya (Reuters) - Bethan, 56, lives in southern England on the same street as best friend Allie, 64.
They are on their first holiday to Kenya, a country they say is “just full of big young boys who like us older girls".
Hard figures are difficult to come by, but local people on the coast estimate that as many as one in five single women visiting from rich countries are in search of sex.
Allie and Bethan – who both declined to give their full names – said they planned to spend a whole month touring Kenya’s palm-fringed beaches. They would do well to avoid the country’s tourism officials.
“It’s not evil,” said Jake Grieves-Cook, chairman of the Kenya Tourist Board, when asked about the practice of older rich women traveling for sex with young Kenyan men.
“But it’s certainly something we frown upon.”
Also, the health risks are stark in a country with an AIDS prevalence of 6.9 percent. Although condom use can only be guessed at, Julia Davidson, an academic at Nottingham University who writes on sex tourism, said that in the course of her research she had met women who shunned condoms – finding them too “businesslike” for their exotic fantasies.
The white beaches of the Indian Ocean coast stretched before the friends as they both walked arm-in-arm with young African men, Allie resting her white haired-head on the shoulder of her companion, a six-foot-four 23-year-old from the Maasai tribe.
He wore new sunglasses he said were a gift from her.
“We both get something we want – where’s the negative?” Allie asked in a bar later, nursing a strong, golden cocktail.
She was still wearing her bikini top, having just pulled on a pair of jeans and a necklace of traditional African beads.
Bethan sipped the same local drink: a powerful mix of honey, fresh limes and vodka known locally as “Dawa", or “medicine".
She kept one eye on her date – a 20-year-old playing pool, a red bandana tying back dreadlocks and new-looking sports shoes on his feet.
He looked up and came to join her at the table, kissing her, then collecting more coins for the pool game.
Grieves-Cook and many hotel managers say they are doing all they can to discourage the practice of older women picking up local boys, arguing it is far from the type of tourism they want to encourage in the east African nation.
“The head of a local hoteliers’ association told me they have begun taking measures – like refusing guests who want to change from a single to a double room,” Grieves-Cook said.
“It’s about trying to make those guests feel as uncomfortable as possible … But it’s a fine line. We are 100 percent against anything illegal, such as prostitution. But it’s different with something like this – it’s just unwholesome.”
These same beaches have long been notorious for attracting another type of sex tourists – those who abuse children.
As many as 15,000 girls in four coastal districts – about a third of all 12-18 year-olds girls there – are involved in casual sex for cash, a joint study by Kenya’s government and U.N. children’s charity UNICEF reported late last year.
Up to 3,000 more girls and boys are in full-time sex work, it said, some paid for the “most horrific and abnormal acts".
“PREYING ON POVERTY?”
Emerging alongside this black market trade – and obvious in the bars and on the sand once the sun goes down – are thousands of elderly white women hoping for romantic, and legal, encounters with much younger Kenyan men.
They go dining at fine restaurants, then dancing, and back to expensive hotel rooms overlooking the coast.
“One type of sex tourist attracted the other,” said one manager at a shorefront bar on Mombasa’s Bamburi beach.
“Old white guys have always come for the younger girls and boys, preying on their poverty … But these old women followed … they never push the legal age limits, they seem happy just doing what is sneered at in their countries.”
Experts say some thrive on the social status and financial power that comes from taking much poorer, younger lovers.
“This is what is sold to tourists by tourism companies – a kind of return to a colonial past, where white women are served, serviced, and pampered by black minions,” said Nottinghan University’s Davidson.
“LIVE LIKE THE RICH”
Many of the visitors are on the lookout for men like Joseph.
Flashing a dazzling smile and built like an Olympic basketball star, the 22-year-old said he has slept with more than 100 white women, most of them 30 years his senior.
“When I go into the clubs, those are the only women I look for now,” he told Reuters. “I get to live like the rich mzungus (white people) who come here from rich countries, staying in the best hotels and just having my fun.”
At one club, a group of about 25 dancing men – most of them Joseph look-alikes – edge closer and closer to a crowd of more than a dozen white women, all in their autumn years.
“It’s not love, obviously. I didn’t come here looking for a husband,” Bethan said over a pounding beat from the speakers.
“It’s a social arrangement. I buy him a nice shirt and we go out for dinner. For as long as he stays with me he doesn’t pay for anything, and I get what I want – a good time.
How is that different from a man buying a young girl dinner?”
‘Muhammad’ teddy teacher arrested
Gillian Gibbons is described as “a talented and able teacher ”
A British schoolteacher has been arrested in Sudan accused of insulting Islam’s Prophet, after she allowed her pupils to name a teddy bear Muhammad.
Colleagues of Gillian Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool, said she made an “innocent mistake” by letting the six and seven-year-olds choose the name.
Ms Gibbons was arrested after several parents made complaints.
The BBC has learned the charge could lead to six months in jail, 40 lashes or a fine.
Officials from the British embassy in Khartoum are expected to visit Ms Gibbons in custody.
“We are in contact with the authorities here and they have visited the teacher and she is in a good condition,” an embassy spokesman said.
The spokesman said the naming of the teddy happened months ago and was chosen by the children because it is a common name in the country.
“This happened in September and the parents did not have a problem with it,” he said.
The school has been closed until January for fear of reprisals.
Fellow teachers at Khartoum’s Unity High School told Reuters news agency they feared for Ms Gibbons’ safety after receiving reports that men had started gathering outside the police station where she was being held.
The school’s director, Robert Boulos, said: “This is a very sensitive issue. We are very worried about her safety.
They came up with eight names including Abdullah, Hassan and Muhammad
Director of Unity High School
“This was a completely innocent mistake. Miss Gibbons would have never wanted to insult Islam.”
Mr Boulos said Ms Gibbons was following a British national curriculum course designed to teach young pupils about animals and this year’s topic was the bear.
Ms Gibbons, who joined the school in August, asked a seven-year-old girl to bring in her teddy bear and asked the class to pick names for it, he said.
“They came up with eight names including Abdullah, Hassan and Muhammad,” Mr Boulos said, adding that she then had the children vote on a name.
Twenty out of the 23 children chose Muhammad as their favourite name.
Mr Boulos said each child was then allowed to take the bear home at weekends and told to write a diary about what they did with it.
He said the children’s entries were collected in a book with a picture of the bear on the cover and a message which read, “My name is Muhammad.”
The bear itself was not marked or labelled with the name in any way, he added.
It is seen as an insult to Islam to attempt to make an image of the Prophet Muhammad.
Mr Boulos said Ms Gibbons was arrested on Sunday at her home inside the school premises after a number of parents complained to Sudan’s Ministry of Education.
I know Gillian and she would never have meant it as an insult. I was just impressed that she got them to vote
Muslim colleague in Sudan
He said police had seized the book and asked to interview the girl who owned the bear.
The country’s state-controlled Sudanese Media Centre reported that charges were being prepared “under article 125 of the criminal law” which covers insults against faith and religion.
No-one at the ministries of education or justice was available for comment.
Mr Boulos told the BBC he was confident she would not face a jail sentence.
One Muslim teacher at the independent school for Christian and Muslim children, who has a child in Ms Gibbons’ class, said she had not found the project offensive.
“I know Gillian and she would never have meant it as an insult. I was just impressed that she got them to vote,” the teacher said.
In Liverpool, a family spokeswoman said Ms Gibbons’ grown children, John and Jessica - both believed to be in their 20s - were not commenting on her arrest.
Gillian Gibbons had been working in Khartoum since August
“I have spoken with her children and they do not want to say anything and aggravate the situation over there,” she said.
Rick Widdowson the headteacher of Garston Church of England Primary School, where Gillian worked for ten years, added: “We are an Anglican school and I know for a fact that Gillian would not do anything to offend followers of any faith.
“Certainly she is also very worldly wise and she is obviously aware of the sensitivities around Islam.”Cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad printed in several European newspapers sparked violent protests around the world in 2006.
Whites Fight Losing Battle to Save Animals from Negro Savagery
Zimbabwe crisis hits black rhino
By Jon Kay
Armed men in camouflage shot dead all three adult females
Three adult black rhinos have been shot at the Imire Safari park in Zimbabwe.
The park, 100km southeast of Harare, is home to one of the only breeding centres for the iconic animals.
The shooting has brought the local breeding programme - for what is one of the most endangered mammals on Earth - to a standstill.
Charles Hamilton has just returned to the UK from Zimbabwe, where his family runs the park. He called the situation “desperate".
He had tears in his eyes as he showed images of the dead animals on his laptop to BBC News.
The pictures showed all three of his family’s adult black rhinos, lying dead on the dusty floor. You can see the bullet-holes in their thick hides. “It’s just totally unbelievable,” Charles sighed.
It’s heart-breaking, but we are determined to give these animals a future, and the breeding programme will continue
Charles Hamilton, Imire Safari Park
For the past 20 years the family has been rearing the animals and returning them to the wild, but last week, in the dead of night, armed men in camouflage gear burst onto the site and shot dead all three adult females.
One of them was just days away from giving birth. Her unborn calf died as well.
“We simply can’t believe it. Those rhinos were our friends. We knew them all so well,” said Charles.
“It is deeply tragic. We’ve been left with four little orphan rhinos, which won’t be able to reproduce for about 20 years. The whole breeding programme is now at a standstill. It’s desperate.”
There are only about 3,000 black rhinos left in the wild, and the species is listed as Critically Endangered by the World Conservation Union, which means they “face an extremely high risk of extinction". Last year, one of the four sub-species was declared as “already extinct".
The situation for rhinos in the country is becoming more and more difficult every day
Cathy Dean, Save the Rhino International
Not surprisingly, the shootings have caused deep alarm among conservation groups, not least because there have been a number of similar attacks in Zimbabwe this year.
Cathy Dean from Save the Rhino International said: “The situation for rhinos in the country is becoming more and more difficult every day. We must continue to support those working to save the vital rhino populations in this troubled nation.”
So, who was responsible for the attack? And why would they have shot the black rhinos?
BBC News is banned from Zimbabwe but a government spokesman has told us that poachers are to blame. He described the shootings as “wanton destruction” and said the police and military had stepped up patrols to search for the gunmen.
Black rhinos are sometimes shot by poachers, who sell their horns as dagger-handles or for use in Chinese medicine, but the Imire rhinos had recently been de-horned as a precaution, so they didn’t have any value to hunters.
This has led to fears that black rhinos are instead becoming a target in Zimbabwe’s battles over land-ownership.
The youngest of the orphans is now being bottle-fed
Cathy Dean from Save the Rhino said: “Over the last few years, we have made some real progress, working with the conservation authorities in Zimbabwe.
“I hope this event, and others recently, don’t mean we are returning to the disastrous poaching of the late 80s and early 90s. I hope this is not the start of a very worrying trend.”
According to Charles Hamilton, the orphaned rhinos on his ranch have been left “stunned” by the deaths of their mothers.
The youngest of the orphans, baby Tamba, is now being fed by bottle.
“It’s heart-breaking,” says Charles, “but we are determined to give these animals a future, and the breeding programme will continue.”
Paris - Eight police officers and a firefighter were injured in new non-White invader riots in two Paris suburbs that were sparked by the deaths of two non-White teenagers who were killed in a moped crash with a police car.
Dozens of young people attacked two police stations on Sunday night in two depressed non-White invader suburbs, Villiers-le-Bel and Arnouville, France 2 television reported.
The riots began after the moped crash earlier on Sunday killed a 15- and 16-year-old. Police said the teens, who were not wearing helmets, were not being chased but died in an accident after they failed to yield the right of way to the police car.
The subsequent violence brought to mind the 2005 countrywide riots that erupted when two teens from another Paris suburb were electrocuted as they tried to hide in an electrical substation while being pursued by police. After Sunday’s accident, young people set trash cans and cars on fire.
The police station in Villiers-le-Bel, where the accident occurred, was attacked with Molotov cocktails and set on fire, and the station in neighbouring Arnouville was destroyed. A train station was also damaged.
Two police officers were shot with a shotgun in clashes with the rioters while another officer who attempted to calm the mob received severe injuries to his face, the administration of the Val-d’Oise department said.

Can you believe this ? Where is the blonde Al Sharpton?
Three men have been jailed for kicking a teenager to death over a row when he bumped into them in the street.
Ian Page, 19, was killed on the Edgware Road, north London, in November last year, following a night out with friends.
Yateman smirked in the dock as the victim’s father Kenny Page read out a victim impact statement, telling how he had gone “through hell” over his son’s death Andre Campbell, 24, his half-brother Lloyd Henry, 20, and Jermaine Yateman, 19, were convicted over his killing at the Old Bailey.
Campbell and Yateman were both found guilty of murder, and jailed for life with a minimum term of 15 years.
Henry, who was convicted of manslaughter, was sentenced to eight years. Both he and Yateman were sent to young offender institutions.
They were part of a gang, captured on security camera footage, that dragged Mr Page to the floor then kicked him as he lay motionless beneath them.
Judge Brian Barker, the Common Serjeant of London, said: “What we have seen on that CCTV is chilling and it is scary.
“It is totally unacceptable and the public have every right to be concerned about the increase in this sort of violence.
“This was selfish thoughtless, group violence. It was deliberately continued when there was no possible danger. It was unwarranted and it led to catastrophe.”
The judge told all three men: “This is a tragic case for all concerned. After an inoffensive evening of enjoyment with his friends Ian Page, 19, died a sudden, brutal and totally unnecessary death at your hands.
“The spark that cause the flare-up was we never properly identified but on any view it was pretty inconsequential.”
After some “shouting and posturing", Campbell went off to a kebab shop to get help from his brother and friends.
The gang returned to where Mr Page was, isolating him in a corner and chasing off his friends before dragging him off and kicking him until he was unable to get up.
As his assailants fled they each laid a final kick into his prone body, before Yateman returned to rob him of his gold bracelet and attacked him again.
Mr Page suffered severe brain damage and died four days later in hospital.
Yateman, of Colindale, north London, smirked in the dock as the victim’s father Kenny Page read out a victim impact statement, telling how he had gone “through hell” over his son’s death.
Lorraine Beasley, Ian Page’s mother, described how he “loved life” and “had time for everybody".
“When my son’s life was taken, part of my own life was taken as well,” she said.
Blacks in Zimbabwe long for the good old days of White rule
November 24th, 2007
The hungry children and the families dying of AIDS here are gut-wrenching, but somehow what I find even more depressing is this: Many, many ordinary black Zimbabweans wish that they could get back the white racist government that oppressed them in the 1970’s.
“If we had the chance to go back to white rule, we’d do it,” said Solomon Dube, a peasant whose child was crying with hunger when I arrived in his village. “Life was easier then, and at least you could get food and a job.”
Mr. Dube acknowledged that the white regime of Ian Smith was awful. But now he worries that his 3-year-old son will die of starvation, and he would rather put up with any indignity than witness that.
An elderly peasant in another village, Makupila Muzamba, said that hunger today is worse than ever before in his seven decades or so, and said: “I want the white man’s government to come back. … Even if whites were oppressing us, we could get jobs and things were cheap compared to today.”
His wife, Mugombo Mudenda, remembered that as a younger woman she used to eat meat, drink tea, use sugar and buy soap. But now she cannot even afford corn gruel. “I miss the days of white rule,” she said.
Nearly every peasant I’ve spoken to in Zimbabwe echoed those thoughts, although it’s also clear that some still hail President Robert Mugabe as a liberator. This is a difficult place to gauge the mood in, because foreign reporters are barred from Zimbabwe and promised a prison sentence of up to two years if caught. I sneaked in at Victoria Falls and traveled around the country pretending to be a tourist.
The human consequences of the economic collapse are heartbreaking. I visited a hospital and a clinic that lacked both medicines and doctors. Children die routinely for want of malaria medication that costs just a few dollars.
At one maternity ward, 21 women were sitting outside, waiting to give birth. No nurse or doctor was in sight, and I asked the women when they had last eaten meat, eggs or other protein. They laughed uproariously. Lilian Dube, a 24-year-old who had hiked 11 miles to get to the hospital, said that she had celebrated Christmas with a morsel of goat meat.
“Before that, the last time I had meat was Christmas the year before,” she said. “I just eat corn porridge and mnyi,” a kind of wild fruit.
The great depression of 2008 – the mother of all depressions
Article by Pascal Molliere
2008 is set to be the darkest ever year in financial history according to Goldman Sachs – a new report claims.
The Times reports that the credit crunch is so serious that it may force the US banking system to cut lending by as much as $4,000 billion, prompting a “substantial recession” in the US.
As much as $400 billion could be wiped out from the US banking system prompting fears that the knock-on effect could spell an economic catastrophe on both sides of the Atlantic.
The mass of defaults on high-risk home loans in America has emerged in greater detail over the last 3-4 months but more and more banks and lending institutions are having to own up to the full extent of their losses as the financial world is being rocked to it’s core with the sheer scale of the financial melt-down.
Mr Jan Hatzius, chief economist at Goldman Sachs estimates that with every $1 dollar in losses, equates to the inability of highly leveraged Wall Street lending by $10, as they typically aim for a so-called capital ratio of 10 per cent.
“If leveraged investors see $200 billion of the $400 billion aggregate credit loss, they might need to scale back their lending by $2 trillion,” Mr Hatzius said.
Mr Hatzius’s actual prediction of a $400 billion write-off would reduce lending by $4,000 billion.
“The likely mortgage credit losses pose a significantly bigger macroeconomic risk than generally recognised. It is easy to see how such a shock could produce a substantial recession,” Mr Hatzius said.
“While the uncertainty is huge, the associated downward pressure on lending raises the risk of significant weakness in economic activity.”
Goldman’s forecast predicts further disastrous consequences for global economy, sighting numerous factors such as the cost of the war in Iraq, record oil prices, sub-prime defaults and growing unemployment.
“The potential for an economic implosion and subsequent world recession is huge and could surpass the biggest financial crash in history of that of the Great Depression”.
Billions were wiped off the world financial system in the 1920’s / 30’s. This period was known as ‘The Great Depression’ (also known in the U.K. as the Great Slump). This was the most dramatic of worldwide economic downturns in history.
It all started with the stock market crash on October 29, 1929, known as Black Tuesday. The depression had devastating effects in both the industrialised countries and those which exported raw materials.
With similar beginnings to the current crisis, the Great Depression was not a sudden total collapse but more of a slow burning fuse that sparked a sequence of major financial catastrophes across the US and subsequently around the globe.
The stock market had suffered losses due to the October 1929 crash – not too dissimilar to the Northern Rock and the Sub-Prime mortgage crisis of today.
Having faced severe losses from the initial crash, consumerism plunged dramatically and a severe drought ravaged the agricultural heartland of the USA beginning in the summer of 1930.
Credit was ample and available to sub-prime borrowers at low rates and few were reluctant to avoid borrowing. By May 1930, vehicle sales had declined to below the levels of 1928. Oil prices had risen sharply while retail values in general began to decline.
Wages began to drop in 1931. Conditions were worst in farming areas where commodity prices plunged, and in mining and logging areas where unemployment was high and there were few other jobs. The decline in the American economy was the motor that pulled down most other countries at first, then internal weaknesses or strengths in each country made conditions worse or better. By late in 1930, a steady decline set in which reached bottom by March 1933.
Many experts and scholars believe that it was the fault of governments and the banking institutions who were to blame for the great depression. It was said that the problems began with excessive lending and a blatant disregard for cheap loans.
Massive bank failures were largely to blame for the great depression and the stock market crash of the 1930’s, huge layoffs occurred, resulting in unemployment rates of over 25%. Banks which had financed a lot of bad debt began to fail as debtors defaulted on debt and bank depositors became worried about their deposits and began massive withdrawals.
Government guarantees and Federal Reserve banking regulations to prevent these types of panics were ineffective or not used. Bank failures led to the evaporation of billions of dollars in assets. Up to 40% of the available money supply normally used for purchases and bank payments was destroyed by all these bank failures.
By 1933, depositors saw $140 billion of their deposits disappear due to uninsured bank failures. Bank failures snowballed as desperate bankers tried calling in loans which the borrowers did not have time or money to repay. With future profits looking poor, capital investment and construction slowed or completely ceased. In the face of bad loans and worsening future prospects, the surviving banks became even more conservative in their lending. Banks built up their capital reserves, which intensified deflationary pressures. The vicious cycle developed and the downward spiral accelerated. This kind of self-aggravating process may have turned a 1930 recession into a 1933 great depression.
There are frightening similarities in the current situation in the US and in Britain. Once again, a banking crisis is threatening to undermine a global economy. Banks are too late in tightening the credit purse strings. There will be no more easy money, on the contrary, there will be very little money at all – and even the regular credit cards, bank overdrafts and small loans will be harder to get hold of as there simply is no money to lend out.
In addition to making it much harder to secure a mortgage or loan, such a dramatic decline in lending would hamper the ability of consumers to borrow money to finance smaller purchases such as cars, televisions and washing machines.
Since two-thirds of the US economy is driven by consumer spending, this will hit retailers and other companies particularly hard. Businesses will also be deterred from borrowing money to invest and will be less able to stave off looming redundancies, putting further pressure on the US economy.
Goldman’s prediction comes after Wall Street firms such as Citigroup, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley have collectively reported more than $50 billion in losses on investments related to sub-prime mortgages.
It follows the US Federal Reserve’s second cash infusion of the month on Thursday, when it injected $47.25 billion into the financial system, the largest since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 .
The latest injection was administered two weeks after the Fed injected $41 billion, as the fallout from the housing crisis gathered momentum.
There is no end in sight and with other countries economies clearly suffering in tandem with the US, there is growing fear that this could be the mother of all recessions.
German rightist jailed for Hitler salute
Berlin - A prominent right-wing extremist received a six- month jail sentence on Friday for giving a Hitler salute - a punishable offence in Germany.
Horst Mahler, 71, was convicted of making the outlawed gesture when he entered prison in November last year to serve a sentence for another crime.
Mahler was not present when the verdict was handed down at the regional court in Cottbus, 150 kilometres south-east of Berlin.
A lawyer who defends neo-Nazis and has convictions for sedition and glorifying crime, Mahler had his passport invalidated for six months last year so he could not attend a Holocaust denial conference in Iran.
On a previous occasion, Mahler’s passport was withdrawn to prevent him travelling to Auschwitz in Poland and denying there the genocide of the Jews.
Since 1945, the Nazis’ murder of an estimated 6 million Jews has been exhaustively documented by prosecutors and historians from Germany and many other nations using eyewitness testimony, archival records and recovery of human remains.
A handful of pro-Nazi historians described as revisionists claim the Holocaust did not happen.
Mahler, who in the 1970s supported far-left terrorism in Germany and was a founder of the Red Army Faction, has also been fined by German courts for praising the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.
A Desperate White Cry From Zimbabwe
Save the Males – November 22, 2007
I am a 16 year old person living in Zimbabwe. I think the time has come for a more direct appeal, and so I am writing to you, the world. Maybe, just maybe, there might be someone out there who can help us…
It’s tough here now. The inflation rate is so high that if you don’t change money within 6 hours you could get half the amount of foreign currency that you would have originally received. We’re starving now; people die around us. In the last year alone at least ten people associated personally with my family have died despite the fact that they were only middle-aged. Other people don’t make it to middle age. They don’t even make it past childhood.
Our once-proud nation is on it’s knees. We flee or die. This beautiful, bountiful once-rich land has become a living hell. We have dealt with it until now; we have made a plan. That was the Zimbabwean motto: “MAKE A PLAN". But now we can’t make a plan. We’re too tired, too broken, too bankrupt. We can’t afford life, and life does not cost much, not really. We cannot afford to eat, we cannot afford to drink, and we cannot afford to make mistakes, because if we do we die.
We don’t have the capital to support ourselves, and those few who do, have to deal with the horror of watching their friends and family fall into absolute poverty as they cannot afford to help them.
We’re waiting desperately for a great hand to pick us up out of the dirt because at the moment we are outnumbered by Fate herself, and so we close our eyes and pray. We have fought for too long, and have been brought to breaking point. We simply stand, heads down, and bear it. Our spirit has gone; we are defeated. After a valiant struggle of over fifteen years, we have been broken.
There is no will left, no spirit. Like a horse that has been beaten until it cannot fight anymore; we are the same, and, like that horse, we stand dusty, scarred and alone, with dried blood on our sides and lash marks along our flanks.
Our ribs too stand out; our hide is also dull. Our eyes are glazed, our throats are parched, and our knees struggle to support us so that we stand with splayed legs to bear the brunt of the next beating, too dejected even to whimper.
This is my plea. The thought of picking ourselves up again is sickening; one can only take so many blows before oblivion is reached, and we are teetering on the rim of the bottomless void. One more push will be the end of us all.
There must be someone out there who can do something. There must be someone out there who cares! We are a destroyed nation, and the world sits back and watches, pretending they cannot hear our cries. I appeal to you all.
A 16 YEAR OLD ZIMBABWEAN……
Some facts about Zimbabwe in 2002, today is much more worst……..!!!!!:
Gooks and Spooks: Zimbabwe’s Ethnic Cleansing
What follows is an anonymous email sent to the Editor of London’s Sunday Mail. It tells of what is in essence ‘ethnic cleansing.’ However in contrast to Yugoslavia, where NATO was quick to intervene on highly suspect grounds, the West seems content to let this continue. The reason, we suggest, is that the architects of the New World Order want to depopulate Africa. This is being done through wars and genocide, as in Burundi, and through famine and disease such as AIDS. As we’ve outlined before, AIDS is a man made disease with a predisposition for the genetic characteristics of blacks; a fact that is emphasised by Africa’s soaring AIDS figures. Nonetheless there are two problems for the proponents of the N.W.O. in this. The first was the former Rhodesia, which was effectively destroyed, and its white farmers who are now being driven from their land. The second stumbling block is the white farming community in South Africa who are also now being subjected to a campaign of terror and intimidation. Both communities offered Africa the chance to learn how to feed itself and develop; which is why both are being destroyed.
It’s no coincidence that Mugabe achieved power through negotiations steered by Henry Kissinger and Lord Carrington. Nor is it any accident that Kissinger is Rockefeller’s general factotum whilst former NATO head Carrington happens to be a blood relative of the Rothschilds. Which also explains why a despot like Mugabe is allowed to stay in power despite his record of human right abuse. For ultimately the plan is to depopulate Africa and knowingly or not the likes of Mugabe are helping to achieve this. And then 30 to 50 years from now a pristine African wilderness will again be colonised, but not by national powers but by the Transnational Corporations. At least that’s the plan, and in the process of being fulfilled a lot of people are going to suffer, as the following relates. Ed.
We marked Heroes and Ancestors Day – or Gooks and Spooks, as we prefer to call it – in Harare yesterday. The city was a place of eerie calm but in the bush all hell was breaking loose, with women, children and old folk being evacuated hourly by light aircraft.
There is a ‘fin de everything’ atmosphere among white people now, a sad, bitter resignation to the fact that our world is crumbling around us. It’s like going through a bereavement for the beloved country many of our families came to from England 100 years ago. It’s an agonising process: anger, denial, bargaining – then maybe death.
The entire generation of whites know they are not wanted and have left or are leaving. The older generation is still desperate to live out what remains of their lives in what is left of British colonial style.
I saw a prosperous looking elderly couple in the supermarket last week looking at the prices of pet food. The woman said: “I don’t think we can afford to keep the dogs anymore.” They are lucky. Upcountry other pensioners have resorted to cooking with dog food – they cannot afford proper meat. Their fixed pensions have been almost wiped out over the past two years by an inflation rate which must be well over 150 per cent. With their children and grandchildren going or gone, many have been reduced to a kind of genteel poverty, trading in their beautiful old homes to huddle together in old age compounds.
The elderly are not the only vulnerable ones. A few days ago I saw a pretty white girl of about 17 touting for business at a flea pit hotel north of the city centre, in a mini skirt despite the cold winter wind. In a country where one in four people is thought to have AIDS, you have to be really desperate to become a prostitute.
There’s simply no money here and certainly no security, not even in death. Suburban street signs have been removed wholesale – we think they are being melted down and made into coffin handles. Graves have been opened, corpses dumped in the bush and coffins taken for resale, spruced up with aluminium from the signs. The other day I was trapped in a huge traffic jam – a rush of middle class black people applying for white land at the Ministry of Agriculture. Spectacles like that make even the bitter-enders talk about quitting.
The government’s ‘indigenisation’ policy makes it more and more difficult for us to be employed instead of the millions of jobless black Zimbabweans. And without a very good job you can’t afford a ticket to get out. There used to be a joke that if whites and middle-class blacks waited too long they would have to sell their plush mansions just to pay for the air fare to London. That joke is rapidly coming true as the value of the Zimbabwe dollar depreciates weekly. It’s expected to reach 500 Zim dollars to the pound within a month, yet when the current government took over 21 years ago, one Zim dollar was worth £1.
The country feels like one big departure lounge in which we carry on our day to day activities while waiting for our flight. You go to the café but you only talk about who’s gone, who’s going and then you see someone you used to take coffee with who’s now sleeping on the pavement.
A chronically optimistic farmer friend told me recently he had always thought the rest of Africa could learn from Zimbabwe, but last week he changed his mind. “I was so naïve,” he said. “to think that 50,000 whites could really make a difference and hold out against the tidal wave of chaos that is engulfing the rest of this continent.” An opposition party supporter, he revealed that what really depressed him was the seeming indifference of most black Zimbabweans to what was happening to the whites.
Mobs of veterans – the catch-all name for Mugabe thugs – and party supporters have been surrounding farms, building road blocks and forcing farmers to flee in what is seen as the start of campaigning for the presidential election next year.
As I flew over the bush I watched crowds of people looting from the abandoned farmhouses, taking away white families possessions on their heads, donkey carts and on ‘liberated’ farm vehicles, some of which they immediately crashed.
At one farm in the Doma area I saw looters load bags of fertiliser from a smashed open warehouse on to a donkey cart. At another I saw beds, tables, cupboards and other bits of furniture scattered over the lawn and thrown into the swimming pool. I spotted caches of stolen goods in the bush around the farms. One farmer told me many workers had been forced at gunpoint to plunder their employers property but some loyal ones were hiding valuable stuff such as computers so they could return it later when law and order was restored. The farmer said that if that happened he would never miss another church service again.
Despite all this, Jack Straw, the UK’S new Foreign Secretary, has done nothing to help whites in what was for so many years a British colony, and in which so many of the white tribe still hold British passports
The slaughter and robbery might seem random but it is not. There is a brutal logic at work. The government knows if it can drive the whites out of Zimbabwe, the rest of the world, and particularly the Western media, will lose interest and then it will be able to deal with its political opposition in no uncertain terms. If that happens, there will be a descent into poverty and terror from which Zimbabwe, a once civilised and sophisticated nation, may never emerge.
In this video clip, recorded from a TV news report on the RTL network, it is reported that they discovered Chemtrails in areas where the German Airforce was engaged in war game excercizes. It is admitted that they are able to trick ground radar with them. They also say that there was a deliberate attempt to cover up with false radar images. They have 97% confidence in their findings and now they are taking action, and are launching a criminal investigation into “persons unknown” for weather manipulation, which is illegal.
It’s in German but the English subtitles are slow enough that you can read them comfortably. You can also watch it again if you do miss something.
PS No, this has nothing to do with 9/11, but it is further evidence of things that governments do to their own populations and of cover ups, i.e. real life conspiracies.
Second German business couple attacked in SA: husband dead, wife badly injured in Bryanston
Nov 24 2007 - BRYANSTON, South Africa. Beaten, dehydrated and semi-conscious, German-born business woman Martina Stocker, 49, lay next to her murdered husband’s bloody corpse for more than 30 hours before she was discovered barely alive by a local police detective. Their son lives in Germany.
She and husband Jürgen had fallen prey to a gang of robbers at their Bryanston home on Wednesday night, but were only discovered on Friday, after their company (name not provided) had raised the alarm.
On November 8 2007, another successful German business-couple was also gunned down in cold blood in their KwaZulu-Natal hotel Wartburger Hof. Siggy and Ingrid Schädle, aged 68 and 63, were killed assassination-style: nothing was robbed at all.
Jürgen Stocker, 66, was shot inside his Bryanston home and had collapsed in the passage. He was then aparently tied up and left to die in a pool of his own blood.
Martina lay in the same passage from the time of the attack until 9am on Friday, when Inspector Hein van Heerden, from Randburg police station, found her lying near her husband.
Detectives said at first they thought Martina was also dead but, after confirming she was alive, she was rushed to Sunninghill hospital by paramedics, where she remains under observation. She had been viciously attacked and was dehydrated.
The Bryandale Primary school is close to the murdered couple’s home in Stirling Avenue – only metres away from the school gates.
It’s understood the robbers gained entry into the house by smashing the glass back door. Police confirmed that two weapons, a handgun and a shotgun, were stolen from the house. A laptop and some cellphones were missing.
It is not yet known whether the robbers used one of these guns to shoot the owner or if they were armed when they broke in.
The Stockers’ Land Rover was parked in the driveway, facing the gate. It’s understood the robbers tried to drive it away but were unsuccessful. A set of keys was discovered on the lawn outside the perimeter wall.
The police were led to the house when the couple’s work colleagues became worried and called sector manager Van Heerden.Police have asked the German consulate to assist them in notifying the Stocker couple’s son, who lives in Germany.
About 90 people a day die from armed violence in South Africa – the world’s highest murder rate.
Half a million migrants pour into Britain in a year, but 200,000 leave
Half a million foreigners came to live and work in Britain last year as immigration hit new records, official figures showed.
Nearly a quarter of a million said they came for jobs and more than 150,000 more arrived as students.
At the same time, an unprecedented total of more than 200,000 Britons left to live abroad.
Migration: The number of people entering Britain still out-numbers those leaving
Illegal immigrant security workers ‘compromised’ Britain’s defences
The breakdown from the Government’s Office for National Statistics shows that the number of foreigners coming to live in Britain went up by nearly ten per cent in a year.
Fewer than one in five were from Eastern European countries. They were outnumbered by migrants from Commonwealth countries in the Indian sub-continent and Africa.
Most new arrivals were heading for London and the South East.
The unprecedented wave of foreign citizens came as a record number of British people joined the exodus for new lives elsewhere. For the first time ever, more than 200,000 British citizens left the country in a single year. Some 207,000 turned their backs on the UK, more than half the total of 400,000 people heading overseas.
Most of the Britons went to Australia, New Zealand, France, Spain or the U.S.
The 2006 immigration figures came with the ONS under continuing attack for the accuracy of its count. They were taken from a survey at ports and airports that involves interviews with only a few thousand people.
The scale of the influx is a further blow to Gordon Brown’s promise of “British jobs for British workers.”
Opposition politicians and critics of large-scale migration said the Government had failed to get a grip on the borders and ignored the impact on schools, housing, health and neighbourhoods.
Including returning Britons, 591,000 people came to live in this country last year. The figure for net immigration - the number who arrived minus the number who left - showed the population swelling by 191,000. Overall, there was a gain of 316,000 foreign citizens and a loss of 126,000 Britons.
Sir Andrew Green, chairman of the Migrationwatch think-tank, said: “Two-thirds of yet another record level of arrivals come from outside the EU and could and should be subject to much tighter controls.
“This gives the lie to claims that nothing effective can be done about immigration because of our membership of the EU. It also confirms the Government’s latest population projections of an extra ten million people in the next 25 years.”
Sir Simon Milton, head of the town hall umbrella body the Local Government Association, said: ‘No one has a real grasp of where or for how long migrants are settling, so much-needed funding for local services isn’t getting to the right places.
“The speed and scale of migration, combined with the shortcomings of official population figures, is placing pressure on funding for services like children’s services and housing.”
Tory spokesman Damian Green said: “Immigration is still running at unsustainably high levels. This is the direct result of the Government’s ‘open door’ approach which has totally failed to consider the impact on public services, housing and community cohesion.”
Jews sell diamond mine to blacks
De Beers sells S. African Cullinan Diamond Mine Thu Nov 22, 3:44 PM ET
JOHANNESBURG (AFP) - The world’s biggest diamond company De Beers said Thursday it was selling its historic Cullinan Diamond Mine in South Africa, where the largest ever diamond was found.
It said it was selling the mine for one billion rand (147 million US dollars, 99 million euros).
The sale of the mine, based 40 kilometres (24 miles) east of the capital Pretoria, to the Petra Diamonds Cullinan Consortium – which has a strong black empowerment element – completes De Beer’s review of its mining portfolio in the country.
“This will enable De Beers to best use our capital to invest in exciting growth opportunities and to sustain a strong diamond mining business in South Africa for the future,” said Gareth Penny, Managing Director of the De Beers Group.
“In this way De Beers is strengthening its commercial future in South Africa whilst helping to meet the government’s aspirations for a diversified, transformed South African diamond industry.”
The pan-African diamond mining group, Petra Diamonds is the second largest producer of diamonds in South Africa after De Beers and is partnered in the country by Thembinkosi Mining Investments (Pty) Ltd which “brings together a significant pool of empowerment players.”
“This transaction is a transformational deal for Petra and reflects the opportunities DBCM is creating for new players in the diamond industry,” said David Noko, managing director of De Beers Consolidated Mines (DBCM)
The Cullinan Diamond Mine, established in 1902, is famous for the world’s largest ever rough diamond, The Cullinan Diamond, which was discovered in 1905 and weighed over 3000 carats uncut.
The mine is also the world’s only significant producer of rare blue diamonds.
“The Cullinan Diamond Mine is one of the most illustrious diamond mines in South Africa and we are delighted to have concluded this transaction which will ensure a viable and sustainable mining operation for many years to come,” said Petra chief executive Johan Dippenaar.
“Over the last 100 years, Cullinan has played an integral part in writing the history of diamonds - giving the world its largest ever gem diamond, the Cullinan diamond, as well as many of the most famous and spectacular diamonds ever seen, including the two largest polished diamonds,” he added
Rate cut speculation sinks dollar again
NEW YORK - The dollar hit a new low against the euro in thin trading Friday as speculation continued that the American credit crisis will lead to another cut in interest rates in the U.S.
The 13-nation European currency spiked early to hit $1.4966, breaking the previous record of $1.4873, set the day before.
“Once again the message … coming through is that with further rate cuts expected from the Fed, the dollar is struggling to find any serious supporters,” said James Hughes, an analyst at CMC Markets.
In late afternoon trading, the euro had retreated to $1.4838, up from the $1.4833 it bought late in Europe the day before, but down from the $1.4848 it bought in New York late Wednesday.
The dollar fell to purchase as little as 107.56 Japanese yen, dropping below the 108-yen level for the first time since 2005. It recovered slightly to purchase 108.18 yen, down from 108.62 yen late in Europe on Thursday and 108.68 yen in American trading Wednesday.
The British pound, meanwhile, fell to $2.0612 from $2.0634 the day before in Europe and $2.0644 in New York Wednesday.
The Thanksgiving holiday weekend kept many players on the sidelines, while Japanese financial markets were closed Friday for the Labor Thanksgiving Day holiday.
The euro, the pound and other currencies have been climbing steadily against the dollar since August amid fears for the health of the U.S. economy, stoked by the subprime credit crisis.
The euro is on track to trade in a $1.50 to $1.60 range over the coming months, Norbert Walter, chief economist at Deutsche Bank, told Dow Jones Newswires on the fringes of the European Banking Congress.
In that range, it is overvalued by about 30 percent, he said.
Earlier in the day, Commerzbank AG Chief Executive Klaus Peter Mueller said he expected the euro to trade in the $1.50 to $1.60 range over the next 12 months.
The dollar has been further weakened by interest rate cuts, which can be used to jump-start an economy, but can also weaken a currency as investors transfer funds to countries where they can earn higher returns.
The Federal Reserve has already cut rates twice and speculation is growing that as the subprime fallout continues, it will be forced into another cut.In other New York trading, the dollar rose against the Canadian currency. The Canadian dollar was worth $1.0108 Friday, down from $1.0160 late Thursday, according to Dow Jones’ Interbank foreign-exchange rates, and from $1.0126 late Wednesday in New York.
Germany Tells Israel: No More Holocaust Reparations
Thursday, November 22, 2007
JERUSALEM — Israeli Holocaust survivors asked Germany’s finance minister Thursday to improve a reparations arrangement set up a half-century ago, but he said no additional money would be paid.
Survivors reasoned the original 1952 accord with Israel did not account for their unexpected longevity or apply to tens of thousands of Holocaust victims who came to Israel following the Soviet Union’s collapse.
Finance Minister Peer Steinbrueck rejected the appeal, said Zeev Factor, a Holocaust survivor who took part in the meeting.
“He said Germany reached an agreement with Israel on this matter … and isn’t willing to touch the agreement,” Factor said.
Steinbrueck said that if German officials concluded problems could be resolved within the framework of the 1952 agreement, then “they will be willing to discuss it,” Factor said.
The German Embassy did not respond to a request for comment on the meeting.
Germany’s government has said it would be willing to discuss requests for additional payments if Israel submits a formal petition, but that so far no such request had been made.
Israeli Finance Minister Roni Bar-On met with Steinbrueck on Thursday but did not submit a formal request for additional aid, a spokeswoman for the Israeli official said.
Six million Jews were killed in the Nazi Holocaust of World War II, and hundreds of thousands of Jewish survivors emigrated to Israel after its creation in 1948.
Germany has paid an estimated $25 billion in reparations to Israeli Holocaust survivors, who Factor said numbered 350,000 to 400,000 at their peak. Germany also provided more than $700 million in goods and services to the Israeli government.
Today, some 250,000 Holocaust survivors live in Israel. They are living longer than was foreseen under the reparation agreement with Germany, with added expenses and high medical costs, survivor leaders say.
In addition, about a third of the survivors here are not covered by the agreement, because they escaped Nazi rule by fleeing to the former Soviet Union.
Some Israelis have argued that the country should be able to take care of its own elderly survivors without going to Germany for more money.
After a storm of protest by Holocaust survivors who charged the government with abandoning them, the state agreed earlier this year to give the 160,000 Israelis who survived Nazi ghettos and concentration camps a monthly stipend of nearly $300, in addition to tax discounts and other breaks.
It also approved monthly payments ranging from $40 to $125 for 80,000 survivors who came to Israel from the former Soviet Union.
The Number Of Holocaust Survivors
From Barrington James
Dear Sir -
In this brief note I will describe a mathematical method that I have used to determine the number of holocaust survivors who were alive immediately after the war in 1945.5.
My calculations are totally based on mathematics and a report of Professor Sergio Dellapergola, Head, Division of Jewish Demography and Statistics of the A. Harmen Institute of the Contemporary Jewry, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
In his report, Professor Dellapergola informs us of two major facts according to his study: 1. the number of Jewish holocaust survivors alive World Wide in 2003 was 1,092,000
and 2. a table that gives us the number of holocaust survivors in Israel who are alive, or expected to be alive, in the years from 2002 to 2020.
I entered his data from the table in my calculator and I used second degree regression analysis. I found the number of Jewish survivors living in Israel in 2003, to have come originally from a 1945.5 group of survivors, numbered
I then used this number, the number of known world wide survivors, and the number of survivors alive in Israel in 2003 and a simple ratio to calculate the total number of holocaust survivors (alive) in 1945.5.
I thus created two equal fractions, a ratio: the number of holocaust survivors alive living in Israel in 2003 over the number of these soon to be Israeli survivors who were alive in 1945.5 = to the number of total holocaust survivors alive world wide in 2003 over the total number of holocaust survivors alive in 1945.5.
I used the Professor’s numbers and this new ratio 265,000/1,586,300=1,092,000/x, where x is the total number of holocaust survivors alive in 1945.5, to find x.
I found the total number of holocaust survivors alive in 1945.5, x, to be about 6,540,000.
I think this number will surprise some people who have been trained to believe that the Nazis killed almost every Jew in Europe except for the relatively few who escaped to Israel.
DNA links Ivorian to Brit slain in Italy - African immigrant murdered student in Italy
ROME - An investigator said Thursday that DNA tests show that the latest suspect in the slaying of a British university student in Perugia had sex with the victim the night she was stabbed to death.
The suspect, Ivory Coast national Rudy Hermann Guede, was arrested in Germany on Tuesday. He has denied involvement in the slaying.
His attorney, Valter Biscotti, said he has not yet spoken with his client and could not comment on the DNA development.
Genetic samples taken from Guede’s possessions matched fluids taken from the body of Meredith Kercher during an autopsy, the Italian news agency ANSA reported.
“I can confirm that the DNA test result” confirmed that Guede had sex with the victim on the night of the slaying, said an investigator on the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to media about the investigation. The investigator declined to give other details.
Authorities began tracking Guede after a bloody fingerprint indicated there was another suspect in the killing of the 21-year-old Kercher, whose body was found in a rented flat in Perugia on Nov. 2. He was arrested in Germany when riding a train without a ticket.
Jailed in Perugia are two other suspects: Amanda Marie Knox, 20, a University of Washington student from Seattle, who shared the flat with Kercher, and Knox’s Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, 23.
Knox and Sollecito have denied wrongdoing. A third suspect, Diya “Patrick” Lumumba, a 38-year-old Congolese, was released earlier this week for lack of evidence.
Knox wrote in a jailhouse statement that police hit her on the head during questioning and that her sometimes-conflicting statements were prompted by stress and exhaustion, Italian media reported Thursday. Police in the central Italian city of Perugia declined to comment on the allegations.
Italian newspapers quoted Knox as writing in a three-page handwritten statement on Nov. 6, the day of her arrest: “I was told that I would be arrested and put in jail for 30 years. When I didn’t remember things I was hit in the head, but I understand the stress of the police.”
The statement was obtained by the Italian dailies Corriere della Sera, La Repubblica and La Stampa, which carried excerpts translated from English. Knox’s lawyer did not answer telephone calls seeking confirmation and the newspapers did not say how they obtained the statement.
Knox said she had “serious doubts” about statements made to investigators before her arrest because she spoke “under the pressure of stress, shock and because I was exhausted.” She did not elaborate.
Among the confusing statements that have emerged are Knox’s whereabouts at the time of the killing. A judge’s order upholding Knox’s detention noted that she was confused about the events because she had smoked hashish that night.
Four days before she was arrested, Knox said she had spent the night with Sollecito at his flat and only returned to the place she shared with Kercher the following morning, Nov. 2. But she later told investigators that another man killed Kercher while Knox was in another room, and that she covered her ears so she wouldn’t hear the victim’s screams.
She had identified the man as Lumumba, who was arrested largely based on Knox’s recollections but released Tuesday.
“I know I didn’t kill Meredith. I see Patrick in flashes as the murderer, but I can’t verify the truth the way it appears in my mind, because I don’t remember with certainty if I was there,” Knox wrote in the Nov. 6 statement.
The autopsy found that Kercher was stabbed in the neck, and prosecutors said she was killed resisting a sexual assault. Her body was found on the floor of her blood-splattered bedroom.
Authorities have said they found Knox’s DNA on the handle of a knife believed to have been the murder weapon and Kercher’s on the blade. The knife came from the kitchen of Sollecito’s Perugia apartment.
Guede’s father defended his son. “My son is innocent,” Pacome Roger Guede told reporters in Perugia.He said his son had left Italy “because maybe he was afraid, very afraid for what he saw” at the house. “He has to come (back) to tell the truth, his version of it,” said the father, wiping away tears. He described his son as a “good boy.”
Israel may extradite sex abuse suspect!
JERUSALEM - A man who fled the U.S. for Israel more than two decades ago amid accusations he sexually abused children while pretending to be a rabbi and psychologist appeared in court in Jerusalem — a step toward his possible extradition.
Abraham Mondrowitz, 60, a member of the ultra-Orthodox Gur Hasidic Jewish sect, arrived in court Sunday after his arrest in Jerusalem on Friday. He is accused of abusing children while running an unlicensed private clinic in Brooklyn during the 1980s.
The father of seven fled to Israel in 1985 as New York police investigated charges against him.
The judge extended Mondrowitz’s detention until Nov. 27, at which point he will decide whether Mondrowitz will remain in jail or be placed under house arrest.
Mondrowitz’s attorney, David Ofek, said he plans to appeal the decision to keep him in custody.
“The state didn’t take action for 25 years, so they cannot bring the case back (now),” Ofek said, adding that he has seen no medical reports indicating abuse.
The U.S. requested Mondrowitz’s extradition in 1985. Israel ordered his expulsion in 1987, but it was unable to carry out the order as its extradition treaty with the U.S. did not cover sodomy.
In January this year the treaty was amended to include all crimes whose punishment is more than one year imprisonment, and two months ago the United States resubmitted the extradition request, Israeli Justice Ministry spokesman Moshe Cohen said.
Sunday’s ruling followed an expose on Mondrowitz in local daily Haaretz on Thursday.
Mondrowitz grew up in Tel Aviv and in Chicago after his family moved to the United States in the 1950s, Haaretz said. In 1979, he moved to Brooklyn, where he impressed the Orthodox Jewish community when he told them he had degrees in clinical psychology and educational administration, and was an ordained rabbi, it said. He counseled children at a clinic at his home.
Patricia Kehoe, a retired NYPD detective, told Haaretz all the diplomas were fake.
In December 1984, New York police charged that on two occasions in June of that year, Mondrowitz abused a 10-year-old boy at his home.
Haaretz said that Mondrowitz was a highly influential figure in the Gur community of Brooklyn in the early 1980s. New York police suspect Mondrowitz sexually abused children brought to him as patients, Haaretz said.
Retailer denies sign is a slur
By Tom Ramstack

A store sign that translates as “Credit without gringo papers” is not meant to be offensive, a manager said.——————————————————————————–
A Casa Furniture and Bedding store in Alexandria has been advertising easy credit with a twist: “no gringo papers” necessary.
A sign outside the store at the intersection of North Beauregard and King streets reads, “Credito sin papeles de gringo.” In English, that could be translated to say “Credit without gringo papers.”
Blanca Granados, the store’s assistant manager, translated the message to mean “just ‘without white papers,’ like Social Security or like that.”
Miss Granados said the store requires customers who purchase furniture on credit to fill out an application and provide personal documentation. The store will accept a passport as identification.
“Some people say, ‘You know, I don’t have a Social Security,’ ” Miss Granados said. “They can show their passport if they don’t have any other papers.”
The American Heritage Dictionary defines the word gringo as “a disparaging term for a foreigner in Latin America, especially an American or English person.”
But the word “gringo” in the store’s sign is not intended to offend anyone, Miss Granados said.
Casa Furniture and Bedding operates 10 stores in the region. Miss Granados said she was not sure how long the sign has been displayed at the store in the 4600 block of King Street.
“I didn’t put it up,” she said. “My boss put it up.”
The other side of the sign advertises low prices and states it is hiring salesmen.
A woman Miss Granados identified as a store manager declined to comment. Another manager did not return a phone call.
Michael Barrera, president of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, said he was aware of the sign but said the way “gringo” was used is not necessarily an insult.
“I think it’s more for marketing,” he said. “Gringo is not always a pejorative term.”
The sign has been up for years, he said, but might strike a nerve now as the debate over illegal immigration intensifies in the local political arena.
“Because of this immigration debate, everybody’s become more sensitized to that,” Mr. Barrera said. “There have been some Hispanic businesses who have felt the brunt of non-Hispanics. They’ve made this immigration debate more about Hispanics than immigration itself.”
This is one of the daily routines….or call it daily terror…..

If my bra is a threat to national security, we’re in big trouble
Paula Simons, The Edmonton Journal
Published: Wednesday, November 21
The airport metal detector makes that ear-zapping, high-pitched squeal.
I don’t usually set off airport metal detectors. Most women don’t. It’s men who tend to make those door frames squeak. Men, with their metal belt buckles, their heavy watch straps, their pockets full of keys and loose change. I can’t remember the last time I set off an airport scanner – at least not in Canada.
But then again, I’m not in a Canadian airport. I’m on my way home from an American vacation, my first in more than a decade – my first since 9/11.
In Canada, when you set off the scanner, a guard usually has you empty your pockets while waving the metal-detecting wand around you. Not in my case. Instead, the officer pulls out his radio.
“I need a female officer for a special search.”
This doesn’t sound good. I take off my watch and hand it over, attempting to head things off at the pass. I still buzz. And the squealing gets louder when the wand nears my bust.
“I’ll bet it’s my underwire bra,” I grin, in what I hope is a disarming fashion. It’s never set off a metal detector before, but I guess anything’s possible.
The guard doesn’t crack a smile. Instead, he beckons a lean, hard-faced woman with greying blond hair held back in a high pony tail. Next thing I know, I’ve been pulled out of the line, away from my family and escorted into a little low-walled room for a more intimate encounter. I stand there, a bit flustered, but still smiling.
“I think it’s just my bra,” I say, trying to strike up a friendly girl-to-girl rapport. She’s having none of that. She escorts me to a special chair and runs the wand carefully over every bit of me. Then, she has me stand on a pair of footprints, outlined in white. She wands me again, and again, my torso sets the thing buzzing like an angry mosquito.
She eyes my bosom suspiciously. It’s not the kind of ogling I’m used to.
I’m a robust 34 FF. That’s the kind of full-figure that needs support akin to a good bridge truss. Over the years, my breasts have attracted their share of attention. Back when they were still perky enough to stand up all by themselves, they were generally considered quite distracting by the men of my acquaintance. But that was 20 years and 50 pounds ago. These days, I look more like a centrefold for National Geographic than Playboy, and my underwire is a wardrobe essential. Still, I never imagined my plunging cleavage could be viewed as a threat to homeland security. The guard puts down the wand and starts a thorough manual search. She doesn’t ask me to take off my shirt – though I’d almost rather she did.
Instead, she slowly, methodically palpates every millimetre of my underwire, starting with the poky bits under my armpits, making her way around to my sternum, feeling carefully, one presumes, for suspicious lumps or gaps. Next, she takes my two breasts, one in each hand, and weighs them carefully, like a shopper trying to choose the right mangoes.
“Balanced,” she mutters. “Nice balance.”
As if I might have been hiding a knife or bullets or plastic explosives in there, somewhere, to throw my avoirdupois out of alignment.
I want to say, “Oh well, at least I won’t have to do my breast exam this month.” I want to tell her that I’ve had mammograms that were less uncomfortable. I want to say, “Nice pair of bazookas, eh?” But I have the feeling such levity in this situation won’t help.
I’m not a person with a lot of body modesty “issues.” Maybe it’s because I grew up with a German mother, with a very no-nonsense European attitude about nakedness. Maybe it’s because I breast-fed my daughter for three years. Maybe it’s just because I’ve been on the beach in a bathing suit for the last two weeks. Whatever the reason, I’m more amused than embarrassed by this ludicrous lingerie inspection. Still, I can imagine a lot of other women might find it intrusive and offensive to be felt up this way by an airport security agent.
Still, now that I’ve passed inspection, the guard’s manner changes abruptly. She smiles and waves me cheerfully on my way. Meanwhile, her colleagues have identified a new potential threat: My two-year-old nephew’s little light-up shoes, the kind that emit a colourful glow with every treacherous toddler step. (Oh please, keep us safe from the spectre of exploding Stride Rites!)
My story is nothing special. It doesn’t involve border security holding up firefighters from Quebec on their way to put out a fire at a historic New York State hotel or a zealous American guard stopping a Windsor ambulance attempting to rush a dangerously ill man to a Detroit hospital. It’s just another small example of the way our culture of fear has eroded common sense and civility. The danger of a zero tolerance mentality is that we lose the intellectual flexibility to exercise sound human judgment. When we blindly follow rules, when we waste time and energy defending ourselves from imaginary enemies, we actually create the potential for real threats to overtake us.
Still, I’ve decided to take my airport underwear adventure in good spirit. It’s been awhile since a stranger told me I had a killer body. Go figure …
Skype encryption stumps German police
WIESBADEN, Germany (Reuters) - German police are unable to decipher the encryption used in the Internet telephone software Skype to monitor calls by suspected criminals and terrorists, Germany’s top police officer said on Thursday.
Skype allows users to make telephone calls over the Internet from their computer to other Skype users free of charge.
Law enforcement agencies and intelligence services have used wiretaps since the telephone was invented, but implementing them is much more complex in the modern telecommunications market where the providers are often foreign companies.
“The encryption with Skype telephone software … creates grave difficulties for us,” Joerg Ziercke, president of Germany’s Federal Police Office (BKA) told reporters at an annual gathering of security and law enforcement officials.
“We can’t decipher it. That’s why we’re talking about source telecommunication surveillance – that is, getting to the source before encryption or after it’s been decrypted.”
Experts say Skype and other Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calling software are difficult to intercept because they work by breaking up voice data into small packets and switching them along thousands of router paths instead of a constant circuit between two parties, as with a traditional call.
Ziercke said they were not asking Skype to divulge its encryption keys or leave “back doors open” for German and other country’s law enforcement authorities.
“There are no discussions with Skype. I don’t think that would help,” he said, adding that he did not want to harm the competitiveness of any company. “I don’t think that any provider would go for that.”
Ziercke said there was a vital need for German law enforcement agencies to have the ability to conduct on-line searches of computer hard drives of suspected terrorists using “Trojan horse” spyware.
These searches are especially important in cases where the suspects are aware that their Internet traffic and phone calls may be monitored and choose to store sensitive information directly on their hard drives without emailing it.
Spyware computer searches are illegal in Germany, where people are sensitive about police surveillance due to the history of the Nazis’ Gestapo secret police and the former East German Stasi.
Ziercke said worries were overblown and that on-line searches would need to be conducted only on rare occasions.
“We currently have 230 proceedings related to suspected Islamists,” Ziercke said. “I can imagine that in two or three of those we would like to do this.”

Trojan horse gallops through Windows Live Messenger
11,000 PCs thought to be infected so far
By Gregg Keizer
A new Trojan horse that started to spread on Sunday through Microsoft’s instant messaging client has already infected about 11,000 PCs, a security company has said.
The as-yet-unnamed Trojan horse began hitting systems about early Sunday morning, according to Roei Lichtman, director of product management at Aladdin Knowledge Systems.
“We still haven’t found what it’s meant to do, but at the moment, it’s creating an army [of bots],” he said. “Eventually, of course, the operator will send commands to do something.”
Users of Microsoft’s Windows Live Messenger instant messaging program receive a message that includes spoofed Zip files, such as one named “pics” that is actually a double-extension executable in the format “filenamejpg.exe” or a file labeled “images” that in reality is a .pif executable.
“This is really growing rapidly,” said Lichtman. Six hours after Aladdin first found the Trojan horse, it put the total number of assembled bots at about 500; three hours later, that had climbed to several thousand. By lunchtime on Monday, the botnet had been built out to 11,000 machines.
As with other malware spread through instant messaging software, the messages bearing malicious code appear to come from people on the recipient’s contact list.
But while its speed in spreading is impressive, Lichtman pointed to another characteristic of the Trojan horse: It can also propagate via virtual private network (VPN) clients, the programs typically used by businesspeople to connect with their employer’s networks when they’re outside the corporate firewall.
“That just increases the effectiveness of its spreading,” Lichtman said. Once the Trojan horse has installed itself on an in-the-field PC - most likely a laptop - through IM, it can penetrate a corporation’s perimeter via VPN to infect systems in the business. “It’s after machines that aren’t running Messenger,” Lichtman explained, who added that to his knowledge, the VPN vector was a first.
Aladdin will continue to monitor the bot’s spread by tapping into the Internet Relay Chat channel being used to command and control the compromised PCs, said Lichtman.
IM-based threats, while still relatively rare compared with those that spread via e-mail or from malicious Web sites, aren’t unknown. Neither are vulnerabilities within IM software. In September, for example, Microsoft forced users of its aged MSN Messenger software to upgrade to Windows Live Messenger 8.1 to stymie a vulnerability in the older program
Best thing to do is: Turn off the Windows messenger Service.
Start>Setting>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services
Click > Messenger
Set Messenger panel to: Startup type - Disabled
That should shut off your Messenger service in Windows and stop this issue.
Holocaust Denial, American Style
Institutionally unwilling to consider America’s responsibility for the bloodbath, the traditional media have refused to acknowledge the massive number of Iraqis killed since the invasion.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad’s flirtation with those who deny the reality of the Nazi genocide has rightly been met with disgust. But another holocaust denial is taking place with little notice: the holocaust in Iraq. The average American believes that 10,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed since the US invasion in March 2003. The most commonly cited figure in the media is 70,000. But the actual number of people who have been killed is most likely more than one million.
This is five times more than the estimates of killings in Darfur and even more than the genocide in Rwanda 13 years ago.
The estimate of more than one million violent deaths in Iraq was confirmed again two months ago in a poll by the British polling firm Opinion Research Business, which estimated 1,220,580 violent deaths since the US invasion. This is consistent with the study conducted by doctors and scientists from the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health more than a year ago. Their study was published in the Lancet, Britain’s leading medical journal. It estimated 601,000 people killed due to violence as of July 2006; but if updated on the basis of deaths since the study, this estimate would also be more than a million. These estimates do not include those who have died because of public health problems created by the war, including breakdowns in sewerage systems and electricity, shortages of medicines, etc.
Amazingly, some journalists and editors - and of course some politicians - dismiss such measurements because they are based on random sampling of the population rather than a complete count of the dead. While it would be wrong to blame anyone for their lack of education, this disregard for scientific methods and results is inexcusable. As one observer succinctly put it: if you don’t believe in random sampling, the next time your doctor orders a blood test, tell him that he needs to take all of it.
The methods used in the estimates of Iraqi deaths are the same as those used to estimate the deaths in Darfur, which are widely accepted in the media. They are also consistent with the large numbers of refugees from the violence (estimated at more than four million). There is no reason to disbelieve them, or to accept tallies such as that the Iraq Body Count (73,305 - 84,222), which include only a small proportion of those killed, as an estimate of the overall death toll.
Of course, acknowledging the holocaust in Iraq might change the debate over the war. While Iraqi lives do not count for much in US politics, recognizing that a mass slaughter of this magnitude is taking place could lead to more questions about how this horrible situation came to be. Right now a convenient myth dominates the discussion: the fall of Saddam Hussein simply unleashed a civil war that was waiting to happen, and the violence is all due to Iraqis’ inherent hatred of each other.
In fact, there is considerable evidence that the occupation itself - including the strategy of the occupying forces - has played a large role in escalating the violence to holocaust proportions. It is in the nature of such an occupation, where the vast majority of the people are opposed to the occupation and according to polls believe it is right to try and kill the occupiers, to pit one ethnic group against another. This was clear when Shiite troops were sent into Sunni Fallujah in 2004; it is obvious in the nature of the death-squad government, where officials from the highest levels of the Interior Ministry to the lowest ranking police officers - all trained and supported by the US military - have carried out a violent, sectarian mission of “ethnic cleansing.” (The largest proportion of the killings in Iraq are from gunfire and executions, not from car bombs). It has become even more obvious in recent months as the United States is now arming both sides of the civil war, including Sunni militias in Anbar province as well as the Shiite government militias.
Is Washington responsible for a holocaust in Iraq? That is the question that almost everyone here wants to avoid. So the holocaust is denied.
Angelia Jolie is a sick woman. For her to take the lowest form of sub-animal and waste resources in an impossible attempt to turn an animal into a human reflects an immature understanding of genetics and humanity itself.
Hence, the kikenmedia put this filthy woman on a pedestal and rub it in our faces as often as they can, as if to say, “Had enough? Have some more of our degeneracy.”
Not only a sub-animal, but the disgusting offspring of a rapist. It’s really impossible to be lower born. Jews are having a field day with this one: a prominent White woman degrading herself.

By Tsegaye Tadesse
AWASA, Ethiopia (Reuters) - The Ethiopian baby adopted by Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie was conceived after her mother was raped, the woman said this week.
Mentwabe Dawit, mother of two-year-old Zahara, described how she was attacked one evening in 2004 after a day’s work at a construction site in the southern Ethiopian town of Awasa.
As she walked home in the darkness, a man approached.
“He pulled a dagger, put one hand on my mouth, so that I could not scream. He then raped me and disappeared,” Mentwabe told Reuters in an interview, tears streaming down her face.
The 24-year-old decided to keep the assault a secret.
“I feared the consequences of being raped in a community where rape is considered a taboo, even if what happened happened forcibly,” she said.
As her belly swelled, Mentwabe could no longer hide her pregnancy and confided in her mother.
“It was not as I feared. I found my mother understanding and consoling. She urged me not to do anything rash, which might endanger my life.”
Mentwabe gave birth in the family’s earth-floored house and she named the little girl Yemsrach which means good news in the Amharic language.
However, she soon found she was unable to feed the baby.
“My baby was on the verge of death. She became malnourished and was even unable to cry,” Mentwabe said. “I was desperate and decided to run away, rather than see my child dying.”
Mentwabe’s distraught mother searched for her for months around Awasa, 270 kms (170 miles) south of the capital Addis Ababa. She eventually put Yemsrach up for adoption, in the belief her own daughter had died.
Mentwabe said her mother did what she thought was best, and denied newspaper reports in the United States and Europe that she wanted Yemsrach, renamed Zahara, back.
“My mother was not misled by anyone, as was alleged by some media outlets. Her motive was to save the child from dying which I fully understand.
“I have never disputed the adoption of my baby by Angelina Jolie.
“I think my daughter is a very fortunate human being to be adopted by a world famous lady. I wish them both all the success they deserve,” she said.
Hate crimes rose 8 percent in 2006
The FBI reported that hate crime incidents rose 7.8 percent last year. “Civil rights” advocates increasingly disturb the peace of the streets to protest so-called “official indifference” to “intimidation and attacks against blacks and other minorities.” What this amounts to is that they whine and complain anout White people standing up to them and challenging them on their apparent racial commitment to crime.
Police across the nation reported 7,722 criminal incidents in 2006 targeting victims or property as a result of bias against a race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnic or national origin or physical or mental disability. That was up 7.8 percent from 7,163 incidents reported in 2005. This pales in comparison with the untold hundreds of thousands of racially-motivated crimes against innocent White people by vicious, hate-filled niggers.
More than half the incidents were motivated by racial prejudice, but the report did not even pick up all the racially motivated incidents last year.
Although the much-publicized noose incidents and nigger gang beatings of Whites among students at Jena, La., high school occurred in the last half of 2006, they were not included in the report. Only 12,600 of the nation’s more than 17,000 local, county, state and federal police agencies participated in the hate crime reporting program in 2006 and neither Jena nor LaSalle Parish, in which the town is located, were among the agencies reporting. Obviously a sizable minority of communities do not agree that every argument between a White man and a nigger constitutes a so-called “hate crime", and are refusing to participate in this Federal dog-and-pony show.
Nevertheless, since the Jena incidents, and a subsequent rash of noose and other racial incidents around the country, civil rights groups have rushed to make a big deal out of nothing. Their “demonstrations” culminated last week at Justice Department headquarters in Washington, D.C. The Department of Justice supposedly investigated the Jena incident but decided not to prosecute because they have absolutely no case whatsoever.
Organizers said 100 busloads of protesters joined Friday’s march here. In September, an estimated 20,000 protesters marched through Jena. On Nov. 3, hundreds of protesters marched through downtown Charleston, W. Va., to urge prosecutors to add hate crime charges against six white people charged in the beating, torture and sexual assault of a 20-year-old black woman who was discovered Sept. 8 after several days of “captivity” in a rural trailer, allegedly by her white boyfriend’s family. They said absolutely nothing about Chris Newsome and Channon Christian, the young White couple kidnapped, robbed, raped, castrated, murdered, dismembered and burned, in Knoxville, Tennesee by five disgusting nigger animals.
The Jena case began in August 2006 after a black student sat under a tree known as a gathering spot for white students. Three white students later hung nooses from the tree. They were suspended by the school but not prosecuted. Six black teenagers, however, were charged by LaSalle Parish prosecutor Reed Walters with attempted second-degree murder of a white student who was beaten unconscious in December 2006. The charges have since been reduced to aggravated second-degree assault, but civil rights protesters have complained that no charges were filed against the white students who hung the nooses. They ignore the face that placing a noose in a tree is not a crime.
“The FBI report confirms what we have been saying for many months about the severe increase in hate crimes,” said the Rev. Al Sharpton, who organized Friday’s march. “What is not reported, however, is the lack of prosecution and serious investigation by the Justice Department to counter this increase in hate crimes.” Sharpton called for Attorney General Michael Mukasey to meet with members of the Congressional Black Caucus and civil rights leaders to discuss this enforcement.
Justice Department spokesman Brian Roehrkasse noted that Mukasey praised the civil rights movement at his confirmation hearings and plans over the next several months to meet “with a number of groups and individuals who have an interest in or concerns about the work” of the department. Roehrkasse also noted that federal prosecutors railroaded and convicted a record 189 defendants of civil rights violations in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30.
The Justice Department says it is actively investigating a number of noose incidents at schools, workplaces and neighborhoods around the country. It says “a noose is a powerful symbol of hate and racially motivated violence” recalling the days of lynchings of blacks and that it can constitute a federal civil rights offense under some circumstances.
The FBI report does not break out the number of noose incidents but the two most frequent hate crimes in 2006 were property damage or vandalism, at 2,911 offenses, and intimidation, at 2,046 offenses. There were 3 murders, 6 rapes, 860 aggravated assaults, 1,447 simple assaults and 41 arsons. Other offenses included robbery, burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft.
The 7,722 hate crime incidents involved 9,080 specific criminal offenses, include 5,449 against individuals, 3,593 against property and 38 classified as against society at large. A single incident can be aimed at both people and property.
Since the FBI began collecting hate crime data in 1991, the most frequent motivation has been racial bias, accounting for 51.8 percent of incidents in 2006, down from the 54.7 in 2005.
Also in 2006, religious bias was blamed for 18.9 percent of the incidents; sexual orientation bias for 15.5 percent, and ethnic or national origin — for 12.7 percent.
“This FBI report confirms … that hate crimes protections for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community are long overdue,” said Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, a civil rights group. Solmonese called on Congress to pass pending legislation that would expand the federal hate crime statute to cover crimes motivated by sexual orientation. The law currently covers only crimes based on race, color, religious or national origin.
Lack of full participation by the more than 17,000 police agencies around the nation somewhat undermines year-to-year comparisons.
For instance, in 2004, 12,711 agencies reported 7,649 incidents. In 2005, only 12,417 agencies reported and incidents dropped 6 percent to 7,163. But in 2006, agencies reporting rose to 12,620 and incidents climbed 7.8 percent to 7,722.
In 2006, police identified 7,330 offenders; 58.6 percent white, 20.6 percent black, 12.9 percent race unknown and the rest other races. Thirty-one percent of incidents occurred near residences; 18 percent on roads; 12.2 percent at colleges or schools, 6.1 percent in parking lots or garages, 3.9 percent at churches, synagogues or temples, and the remainder elsewhere.
34 International AID Agencies say Zimbabwe on the verge of TOTAL COLLAPSE
Date Posted: Wednesday 21-Nov-2007
[Jeff Rense forwarded this news item to me. Note that they say the level of collapse that Zimbabwe faces is of a kind that few nations have ever experienced.
I can easily believe this. In my view, Mugabe was quite determined to MURDER MILLIONS IF NEED BE. Well… maybe his opportunity is coming. What comes after this?
Now the S.African Govt, never talks about any kind of crisis in Zimbabwe. Crisis? What crisis? There is no crisis there. On our State media, the SABC, the Mouth of the ANC, very little is mentioned of the dire straits and TOTAL COLLAPSE which that country faces.
The USA seems to be standing by calmly. Is Zimbabwe going to reach a point where it can’t be bailed out? If so… then what? Will people just flee? Maybe that is the most realistic scenario - riots, some people getting shot and the rest flee. Mugabe and Zanu(PF) will be the only remaining people there and Mugabe win’s next year’s election with 90% to the MDC’s 10%!!!!
Zimbabwe will collapse… but I fail to see Mugabe losing power. Hold on! I’m trying hard to imagine it… mmmmmm … Sorry! No can do! Couldn’t manage it. He’s still there but the MDC might not be there!! Jan]
Zimbabwe On Verge Of Collapse
By Linda Young
AHN News Writer
HARARE, Zimbabwe (AHN) - Analysts say that hyperinflation in Zimbabwe
will bring about a complete economic collapse within the next six
months. Such a standstill could lead to civil unrest that can paralyze
President Robert Mugabe’s government, according to a warning
international aid agencies gave their staff members.
Inflation in Zimbabwe soared to a record 4,530 percent in May and the
cost of living for an average family in an urban area rose by 66
percent last month.
The respected Heads of Agencies Contact Group representing a 34 aid
organizations that include the United Nations, the International
Federation of the Red Cross and Oxfam issued the warning in an
internal memorandum. It is the first sign that aid groups are
preparing for the nation’s collapse.
The bluntly worded memorandum is “talking about a situation where
there is no functioning government or a total breakdown,” said an
agency official who asked not to be identified, the Times reports.
“It is saying it is inevitable, not just a possibility,” he said. “Our
head offices have to know. Not many people have experienced this kind
of crisis.” The document says that inflation will continue to
snowball, adding, “economic collapse is expected before the end of
The memorandum noted that aid agencies are forced to pay workers twice
a week and will have to give raises after inflation continues to erode
purchasing power. According to reports from the BBC, some employers
are paying workers part of their wages in food, signaling a return to
a barter economy and further dampening hope that stability will return
to the currency.
The memorandum foresees a time when the currency will be worthless,
shops will close, services become unavailable, unemployment and crime
soar and civil unrest break out.
It notes that electricity use was cut to four hours a day so that
farmers could operate. Food production is critical and observers say
the bad economic conditions were created by President Mugabe’s
decision to seize farms from white landowners.
AHN has previously reported on the crisis in Zimbabwe’s health care
system where doctors have gone on strike for better conditions and
wages and nurses have been unable to report for work because they
cannot afford bus fare. The health care system has already collapsed,
according to Zimbabwe Doctors for Human Rights.
Although elections are set for March 2008, analysts say that it will
be impossible to hold free and fair elections if the nation collapses
before then. President Mugabe has been in power for 27 years while the
nation currently suffers from an 80 percent unemployment rate and a
negative growth rate of -4.4 percent annually.
THIS IS WHAT THE WORLD REALLY DON’T NEED……..
THINK WE HAVE MUCH MORE IMPORTANT PROBLEMS TO SOLVE THAN THIS FU**ING TREE FOR WHINING KIKES
FAMOUS CHESTNUT SPARED
Anne Frank’s Tree Wins Reprieve
The famous chestnut tree that comforted Anne Frank while she was in hiding was scheduled to be chopped down Wednesday, but an Amsterdam judge ruled that this should be a last resort and ordered the city and conservationists to come up with an alternative solution by January.
Judge Jurjen Bade leaves after consulting tree experts on the condition of Anne Frank’s tree.
The chestnut tree that comforted Anne Frank as she hid from the Nazis was scheduled to be chopped down on Wednesday, but a last minute ruling by a judge has saved the famous tree –for now.
City officials had ruled last year that the 150-year-old tree was in danger of toppling over and posed too great a risk to the public. Last week the city ordered the tree to be felled this Wednesday. But last Thursday conservationists managed to secured a hearing to secure an injuction and tree experts carried out stability tests on Monday.
During Tuesday’s hearing Judge Jurjen Bade wasn’t content to just listen to the experts speak in court. He adjourned the hearing and took witnesses and court officials with him on a judicial field trip to see the controversial tree for himself. He watched as experts tapped its trunk to point out the rotten wood in the trunk that has been infected by fungus.
Back in court Bade ruled that the city had failed to prove the tree was an imminent threat and had given insufficient consideration to alternative plans such as anchoring the tree with cables. He gave the city and the conservationists until January to find a solution, saying the felling of the tree should be a “last resort.”
The Netherlands’ Trees Institute, which had led the efforts to save the chestnut tree, gave evidence at the hearing. “This is a monumental tree of unusual cultural and historical value,” the institute’s spokesman Edwin Koot told the court. “It’s a symbol of freedom all over the world and its summons forth a lot of emotion.”
The tree stands in the courtyard behind the building where Anne Frank and her family hid from the Nazis until 1944. She often mentioned it in her famous diary which was published in 1947, two years after the 15-year-old died in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
The tree was one of the few glimpses of life the teenager could see as she spent two years holed up in the warehouse annex. “As long as this exists,” she wrote, “and I may live to see it, this sunshine, the cloudless skies, while this lasts, I cannot be unhappy.”
The building where Frank spent those two years is now a museum, the Anne Frank House. After remaining neutral on the issue, the museum told the court on Tuesday that it was in favor of cutting down the tree, out of concern for the safety of the building and the hundreds of thousands of people who visit it every year.
Museum director Hans Westra told the court that grafts had been taken of the tree to try to replace it with a sapling. “We would rather have a young living tree.”
White people need to wake up. The darker this nation becomes, the more this will take place. The darker our “law-makers” become, the more non-whites will get away with rape and murder. Wake up white people.
Rapist attacks women in front of child in Dearborn Heights
Christine Ferretti / The Detroit News
DEARBORN HEIGHTS – Police from Dearborn and Dearborn Heights today said they are seeking information on a man believed to be responsible for raping two women in front of their young children within the last two months.
About 1 p.m. Friday, a Dearborn Heights woman was raped in her home in an area between Michigan Avenue and Van Born and Telegraph and Southfield in front of her young child, Dearborn Heights Police Capt. John LaBenne said.
In early September, a Dearborn woman in the same area was also raped in front of her small child at 12:30 p.m.
Both women were mothers of children under the age of 5 and described the same attacker.
In both cases there were no signs of forced entry and the rape occurred just as each woman was returning home.
Police are asking residents to be cautious.
“We are concerned and want people to be vigilant,” LaBenne said. “Be careful, especially young mothers returning home.”
Anyone with information should call Dearborn Heights Police Lt. Jeff Seipenko at (313) 277-7702 or Dearborn Police Department at (313) 943-2240
Cape Town - “We’ll be back,” vowed nine robbers armed with butcher’s knives as they left a shattered family after several hours of violence, in which a pregnant woman was raped twice.
Clifford Bacon, 40, the owner of the house was stabbed twice.
Meanwhile, at the house next door in Milnerton Road, Gordon’s Bay, 78-year-old Joy van Aarde had been battered to death in her bedroom with a meat hammer.
In both cases, the attackers had gained entrance through kitchen windows.
They told the four people in the luxury house in the Helderberg area that they would be back if they were not caught, and, if they were, they would return when they got out of jail.
One of the gang was just 14 years old, with the others ranging in age up to about 22.
Their luck ran out when they fled in the home owner’s double-cab bakkie and a blue Ford Meteor.
The bakkie overturned about 3km from the house and police arrested four of the attackers.
‘This is your bad day’
The following day, Gordon’s Bay police spotted a suspicious-looking Meteor in Khayelitsha and arrested three more suspects.
During the orgy of violence at the house, the apparent leader threatened Clifford Bacon, his son, Calvin, 18, a 19-year-old friend, Michael Billson, and a 25-year-old pregnant woman.
He said: “This is not a Bruce Willis movie, this is reality. Everybody has his bad days. I’m sorry to do this to you, but this is your bad day.”
When they left, they had packed the two vehicles with jewellery, clothing, cellphones, cash, liquor and computers they had looted in their rampage through the house.
Some of the clothing they had just pulled over what they were wearing.
Inspector Bernadine Steyn said all seven suspects were from Khayelitsha.
Van Aarde’s son, Strand transport contractor Olaff Bergh, was shot in his right side in June last year when two men tried to hijack his bakkie near Khayelitsha.
He managed to drive off, but he spent six days in hospital after the bullet had been removed.
Two days after the attempted hijacking, police took a statement. He said that he had not heard another word from them.
His wife, Lindé, said a memorial service probably would be held for Joy van Aarde next week.
Meanwhile, in the Cape Peninsula luxury suburb of Welgemoed, Bellville police have arrested a gang that has conducted a reign of terror for the past two months, report Lucille Botha.
Bludgeoned to death with brick
Residents in the suburb have been left reeling by eight burglaries in which the same modus operandi was used.
Superintendent Petrus Swart said stolen goods, including a firearm stolen earlier this month from a house in Welgemoed, had been found in the suspects’ possession.
But, captain Fienie Nimb said the suspects were not at this stage being linked to the murder of Christalene Rossouw, 78, who was bludgeoned to death with a brick in her house in Saffron Street on May 2
Connecting some dots for the new folk
Here we’ll discuss some ideas on the dynamics of the ongoing and epic race war between the White race and jews.
Universal truth: The jews win so often because they have their adversaries fight against proxies. The jew watches from afar unscathed as others do the fighting on their behalf.
History books are littered with the woeful tales of various groups of White men who’ve met their demise fighting the jew’s proxies. Some are; the Romans, the Crusaders, the Inquisitors and the Nazis. Each one of these groups fought against proxies of the jew and they didn’t attack the jew directly, and as a consequence they’ve been swept aside and utterly destroyed. And the most tragic aspect of their valiant attempts of ridding the world of the jew pestilence, is that the jew has always been the last one standing and it’s been the jews who’ve written our history books filled with distortions of truth and outright lies of the causations of those wars.
How the jew gains a proxy nation and maintains control:
In every case the pattern is always the same. The jews infiltrate the upper echelon of a group using the moral weaknesses of the leadership to gain power over them. Inherent faults of greed, avarice, sexual lust/deviancy and vanity are all but mere tools manipulated with expert skill by the jew to influence the minds of the jew’s target. The jew’s proficiency at detecting and exploiting faults is unquestionably the jew’s most powerful weapon. All of their advantage disseminates from this seemingly preternatural ability.
Of course the jew uses other weaknesses against us, such as our innate gullibility and naiveté. Like a virus specifically designed to breach our natural defenses, the jew attacks our cultural infrastructure and injects sugar-coated lies into our collective awareness that actually amplify these weaknesses. For example, we’re told in school that cynicism and skepticism are undesirable traits and that it’s a good thing to seek consensus, rather than be disagreeable when we see that something is wrong. By inserting a benevolent-sounding falsehoods into our thought process, the jew negates our protective shield against all that is foreign and most likely potentially harmful to us.
Long ago, the jew co opted our spiritual leaders and the creeds that they taught, thus warping the codified systems of moral behavior that successfully guided our race for untold ages. Today, Christian churches instruct their flocks that they must have blind faith and that charlatans are always someplace else, telling other people wrong things. Our folk walk out of the church beaming with the glow of Jesus and they haven’t a clue that they’ve just been programmed to do the exact opposite of Biblical teaching. By the way, has there ever been a preacher who’s admitted to being a charlatan?
Finally, we must address fear, the jew’s most despicable tool of mass manipulation. The jew is a maestro at instilling fear and the jew will ruin or slaughter any number of people in order to evoke the desired level of terror. To be able to instill fear is to be able to control. It is a fact, that most of our folk will not actively participate in the White Nationalist movement because they’re in fear of losing their jobs. However, they’ll enthusiastically join any number of jew-approved causes and forgo the most righteous cause of all because of jew-instilled fear. We know that this is true, otherwise our movement would be gigantic by now. Fear is what keeps our people from doing the right thing. White Nationalism is the only real cause, all others are bogus jew distraction.
The nail in the coffin is that our own conceit blinds us to our own susceptibility to the jew’s tactics and traps and little boxes that we’re put into. Cultivated for an entire lifetime, we’re open to any self-destructive suggestion that the jew imposes upon us.
But wait! None of us here believes that the jew can pull the wool over our eyes! We’re jew-wise for Pete’s sake! No one can fool us!
Don’t believe that for an instant! One can never be cynical or skeptical enough. The jew is incessantly spewing a kaleidoscope of fantastic falsehoods that bedazzle and befuddle. Unfortunately, most of the time the lies will come from those whom we trust the most. Even my words here should be put under the microscope and tested for their uprightness and correctness. We must sternly judge all information and use the litmus test of whether or not the jew wants us to hear these things, for that will help us to determine the truth.
Back to the jew’s proxies. White people have been fighting the jew’s proxies because of the realities outlined above. The proxies are us….all non-jews. We are gullible, fearful, prone to religious superstition used against us, and we’re misled by our own people who’ve been successfully extorted and then made “sell-outs” of the jew.
As long as we continue to believe that our enemy is someone else and not the jew, we will always be dominated by the jew. If we think that it’s ZOG or the Muslim or the nigger or the mexican or the feminist or the homosexual or the Meds or the Nordics or the North or the South, we’ll always be a slave to the jew. We must also understand that where ever we gather the jew and it’s minions will be right behind us. They cannot survive without us. They’re compelled to suck us dry.Their survival depends wholly upon taking from us. We need to accept the painful fact that there’s no place to hide. The jew controls billions of minions and they’ll batter-down the walls of any sanctuary that we attempt to construct for ourselves. Until we fully realize that it’s the “global jew” who’s our enemy, we will be fighting the countless minions conjured-up by the jew and fighting them for the rest of eternity or until we’re exterminated. Right now, we’re losing and losing badly because we continue to fight only the proxies and not the jew.
Now, for the 64 thousand dollar question……….How do we fight the jew?
We name the jew. Very specifically we name the jew. We identify the jew. We expose the jew. We tell other where the jew lives. We tell others exactly what the jew is doing to hurt White people. We tell others where these jews work. Most importantly, we do this on a global level. In every White nation. We must give the jew no proxy to hide behind. Any division among White folk must be eradicated as we now recognize those divisions as the portals for the jew to enter the body White and then create their proxy monsters out of our own people. Unified we will survive.
We educate our folk everyday and we never let up. We list the jews right here on this website so that other Whites around the world can read about them and see their pictures and learn where their dirty money comes. We don’t even need to suggest what should be done to these jews. That will come naturally to those White men as they begin to understand and see the truth that we present.
We get this information out to the world and in front of millions of White people via this website, our blogs, our videos, our radio shows, our print publications and of course word of mouth. We do this with the utmost zeal and purpose. There is nothing more important than this mission. And you, kind reader, are invited to join us in this noble struggle.
There will come a time, most likely in the near future when the information that we provide will be of great use. Yes, I’m talking about when the shit hits the fan. When the Western nations are involved in constant war and their military forces are maxed-out and marshal law prevails as all civilization begins to break down……….This will be the time when the lists that we’ve provided will be used to track down and find those powerful and influential enemies who’ve been involved in bringing about the genocide of the White race. By virtue of the fact that we are disseminating this information will put pressure to bare on the process and hasten the inevitable.
Those White men, out there, will have the wherewithal to ignore the temptation of attacking the proxies, will instead attack and kill our arch-enemy right in it’s filthy lair. They’ll have the Intel because we’re doing the research and giving it to them. Our Brothers who’ve been reading and training and planning for the appointed time will suddenly spring from the shadows. Because they know all about their target, it’ll be over quick. A rapid global assault and compromising of thousands of key targets in every major city of the civilized world will be the only solution to this problem and put it to rest for all time.
By my reckoning, less than ten thousand motivated White men and 24 hours could change everything.
Bravo Obama….you’ll be Americas new president?

Obama tells students he drank, took drugs in high school
Sen. Obama was candid with students in New Hampshire Tuesday.
MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (AP) — Presidential hopeful Barack Obama on Tuesday told high school students that when he was their age he was hardly a model student, experimenting with illegal drugs and drinking alcohol.
Obama stopped by a study hall at Manchester Central High School and answered students’ questions about the war in Iraq and his education plan. But when an adult asked about his time as a student, Obama spoke bluntly.
“I will confess to you that I was kind of a goof-off in high school as my mom reminded me,” said Obama, an Illinois Democrat who grew up in Hawaii.
“You know, I made some bad decisions that I’ve actually written about. You know, got into drinking. I experimented with drugs,” he said. “There was a whole stretch of time that I didn’t really apply myself a lot. It wasn’t until I got out of high school and went to college that I started realizing, ‘Man, I wasted a lot of time."‘
Obama has written about his drug use in his memoir, “Dreams from My Father.”
“Junkie. Pothead. That’s where I’d been headed: the final fatal role of the young would be black man,” Obama wrote. Mostly he smoked marijuana and drank alcohol, Obama wrote, but occasionally he would snort cocaine when he could afford it.
Drugs, Obama wrote, were a way he “could push questions of who I was out of my mind, something that could flatten out the landscape of my heart, blur the edges of my memory.”
Obama told students he developed his sense of social justice at college — he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles for two years before transferring to Columbia University in New York.
Before he got to Columbia, he said, he lived a naive life.
“I went to high school in Hawaii, so there was a lot of opportunity to goof off because the weather is really good all the time,” he said. “I did well in school, but I didn’t really apply myself. I did what I needed to do to get into college and it came fairly easily to me.”
His biggest interest was in sports and girls.
“I was big on basketball. We were state champs. I thought I was better than I was,” said Obama, who finds time on the campaign trail to still play a pickup game.
He then added: “I thought about girls a lot, I won’t lie.”
Ilya Ehrenberg - The Man Who Invented The ‘Six Million’
He was a prolific writer, celebrated author of various novels and other works of fiction. He was the top Soviet propagandist during the Second World War. He was a notorious liar and a pathological monster. He was a Jewvandal.
As a a leading member of the Soviet-sponsored Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee, Ilya Ehrenburg appeared at fund-raising rallies in the United States, raising support for the Communist cause while displaying fake bars of soap allegedly manufactured by the Germans from the corpses of dead Jews.
But Ehrenburg was perhaps most notorious for his viciously anti-German hate propaganda in World War II. In it, he exhorted Soviet troops to kill all Germans they encountered without pity.*
Ilya Grigoryevich Ehrenburg
January 27, 1891 - August 31, 1967
In one leaflet entitled “Kill,” Ehrenburg incited the simple ‘Russian’ soldier to treat the Germans as subhuman. The final paragraph concludes:
“The Germans are not human beings. From now on, the word ‘German’ is the most horrible curse. From now on, the word ‘German’ strikes us to the quick. We have nothing to discuss. We will not get excited. We will kill. If you have not killed at least one German a day, you have wasted that day … If you cannot kill a German with a bullet, then kill him with your bayonet. If your part of the front is quiet and there is no fighting, then kill a German in the meantime … If you have already killed a German, then kill another one - there is nothing more amusing to us than a heap of German corpses. Don’t count the days, don’t count the kilometers. Count only one thing: the number of Germans you have killed. Kill the Germans! … - Kill the Germans! Kill!”
And in another leaflet: “The Germans must be killed. One must kill them … Do you feel sick? Do you feel a nightmare in your breast? … Kill a German! If you are a righteous an conscientious man - kill a German! … Kill!”
This is typical of the steady diet of pathological hate fed to millions of Soviet troops by this Jew, safely ensconced far from the front.
But it wasn’t only the ordinary German soldier Ehrenburg was talking about, whom he accused of the very atrocities the Communists were themselves committing. Ehrenburg’s incendiary writings were, in fact, a prime motivating factor in the orgy of murder and rape against the civilian population that took place as Soviet troops rampaged into the heart of Europe. Appealing to the lowest, most subhuman instincts of this Bolshevik horde, he reiterated his genocidal message:
“Kill! Kill! In the German race there is nothing but evil; not one among the living, not one among the yet unborn but is evil! Follow the precepts of Comrade Stalin. Stamp out the fascist beast once and for all in its lair! Use force and break the racial pride of these German women. Take them as your lawful booty. Kill! As you storm onward, kill, you gallant soldiers of the Red Army.”
The crowning achievement of Ehrenburg’s career came on December 22, 1944, when this hate-crazed fiend became the first person to mention the kabbalistic figure of Six Million alleged Jewish victims of National Socialism, and then proceeded to introduce that figure into Soviet propaganda.
After the war he joined with co-racial and fellow propagandist Vasily (Iosif Solomonovich) Grossman to produce a fictitious “Black Book” and lay the foundation for what has come to be known as “The Holocaust."** The rest is history.
Ehrenburg never forgot his Jewvandalic roots, and before his death he arranged for the transfer of his private archives to the tribal cult center at Yad Vashem in Jerkoffusalem.And so, it is altogether fitting that the birthday of this psychopathic lie-master should have been chosen as a day on which to remember the hoax which he concocted and of which he was the original inventor.
The Christian Cross lighting Ceremony
The cross lighting ceremony is another example of how the national media distorts the Klan image. They purposely use the word “burn” because of the negative image that is conjured up in the minds of many people. To them it is a desecration, a desire to destroy the cross.
The Knights definitely does not burn the cross, but we do light the cross. The lighted cross of The Knights is no different than the average church that has a lighted cross either on top or in front of their church building. The light of the cross symbolizes the Light of Christ dispelling darkness and ignorance. It is the fire of the cross that reminds us of the cleansing “fire” of Christ that cleanses evil from our land. The fiery cross is a symbol that has long been popular with the Christian faith, for example the Methodist denomination uses the fiery cross as their symbol.
We don’t burn the cross, we Light the cross. We recognize that Christ is the light of the world.
The Klan adopted the fiery cross from the traditions of old Scotland where the fiery cross was used as a symbol against tyranny and often the hills of Scotland would be lit aglow with the lighted cross -the symbol of freedom - freedom from sin - freedom from tyranny. When a Klansman or Klanswoman participates in a cross lighting ceremony they are making a public declaration to Jesus Christ of their continued commitment to the Christian faith.
Standing Up To The Klan

Two weeks ago, the town of Storm Lake, Iowa became the target of one of America’s more notorious groups, the Ku Klux Klan. Storm Lake’s growing diversity is what caught the KKK’s attention. Over 45 percent of Storm Lake’s population are minorities, mostly Hispanic. The KKK planned for a rally to take place November 11th in the town, but the rally was put on hold.

Instead of being intimidated, residents of Storm Lake stood up to protect their diversity.
Today’s peaceful protest was much more than a retaliation. For Turning Point Community Church and Buena Vista University, today was about coming together to promote Storm Lake’s cultural diversity.
Storm Lake, Iowa is a community of many cultures.
“I think that’s what makes storm lake so unique is that the diverse populations we have in Storm Lake, we don’t have in other places,” said Pastor Ted Weirich, a pastor at Turning Point Community Church.
But that diversity isn’t embraced by everyone.
“Well anytime there’s a disconnect in the community, you’re vulnerable for hate and wickedness and from some ill wills to resurge,” said Leon Williams, Director of Intercultural Studies at Buena Vista University.
Recent attention from the KKK have made some residents feel unwelcome. But instead of acting out, they celebrated.
“There’s no such thing as a second class citizen. And we just want the Hispanic population and diverse population here to feel embraced and that they’re loved by the church and that the church really does care,” stated Weirich.
Pastor Ted Weirich from Turning Point Community Church heard about the proposed KKK rally and decided to take action. Together with the Intercultural Studies program at Buena Vista University, they put together a peaceful protest.
“This is an attempt not just to address those types of things, but just to celebrate who we are,” said Williams.
To take a stand against racism and promote their culturally diverse and growing community.
While they know one event wont be enough to stop racism, they believe it’s worth a try.
“It might not go away, but that doesn’t mean you cant try to make it go away,” said Mychy Mathis, a second year student at Buena Vista University.
And if the Klan does come to Storm Lake, Pastor Ted believes the community will stand strong.
“We have no fear when it comes to them. We believe in the truth and the word of God and we’re standing by that word,” said Weirich.
Both Turning Point and Buena Vista University hope more events like Saturday’s will bring their community closer together. Turning Point Community Church is currently located in Spencer, Iowa, but they will soon be moving to Storm Lake to help the community
Beliefs of the Ku Klux Klan
Non silba, sed anthar.
Not for self, but for others.
1 That the White Race is the irreplaceable Hub of our nation, our faith and the highest levels of western culture. The White Race has the right to be proud of our Color, Creed and Heritage, this same unalienable right afforded to every other race .
2 America/Europe/Australia and their countries should always be first before any alien influence or interest.
3 That the Constitution, as originally written and intended, is the finest system of government ever conceived by man.
4 That the family is the strength of our nation.
5 That life starts with conception. Abortion is Wrong it should be outlawed, except when the life of the mother is endangered or conception by rape.
6 That all immigration should cease until all Americans are gainfully employed.
7 Troops should be positioned at all borders to stop the flow of illegal aliens.
8 That the laws of the land should always be upheld. Criminal acts of any kind will not be condoned or tolerated.
9 That homosexuality is wrong and an abomination before God. Same sex marriages should not be recognized by the State. Same sex marriages should not be allowed to adopt or raise children.
Why would you want to join this organization? If you are looking for a group that is a true fraternal organization, a family of friends and a circle of support, then we are the group you are looking for. We don’t have to degrade other races to try and make ourselves look better. By practicing the principles that we are taught in Klankraft, our lives are filled with meaning and have a renewed sense of purpose. Do not confuse Klankraft with any form of witchcraft, as they are not even remotely related, connected or affiliated.
We are a Christian organization and believe in the bible as the word of God. Regardless of your denominational affiliation, if you are Christian then you are our brother or sister in Christ. We have members from every branch of the religious tree, from Southern Baptist to Roman Catholic.
We do not promote or believe in the supremacy of any race, only equality and separation. A slogan we have frequently used is “equal rights for all and special rights for none” this we firmly adhere to. We are not here to cause strife or dissension within any community, only to promote and preserve our heritage. Every race should be afforded the right to do the same. Every race, color and creed should be proud of who they are and work hard preserve and protect the roots from whence they came.
We firmly support education and family values. It is only through education that change can happen. Everyone should have the opportunity to the best education available. If you were to take even the most die hard gang members off the street and give them a quality education, thus allowing them to make more than minimum wage and actually be able to support a family without illegal means. It is likely that they will become a productive part of society instead of a leach on society. This issue confronts every race, color and creed. We need to become a literate, educated people as a whole.
We need a return to family morals and values. Society today has all but eliminated the Christian values that our countries were founded upon. We are indeed in a new time and day, yet the values of truth, honor and respect are as important today as they were one hundred years ago. Our youth for the most part have forgotten what these values are, and as they grow up and instill their morals and values into their children, the cycle of iniquity will do nothing more than grow larger. Look at the decadence of society today and imagine what the future holds for your children. How will your own flesh and blood survive the moral decay and the vagrant immorality of the present much less the future? How will your children survive in a society that is dominated by liberal politicians that mandate affirmative action and quota based acceptance to universities? We strive to teach these morals and values to our children. As parental actions are the single biggest influence in a child’s life, we stress the importance of this to our members and ask that they conduct themselves with this in mind. Will your children become second class citizens because you failed to promote their best interests? Will your children fail to have the life they deserve because you wouldn’t stand up and fight for their rights as white citizen? These are questions that only you can answer, look deep into your heart and into your children’s eyes before you come to your own conclusion.
Why would you want to join an organization like the Ku Klux Klan? Because we are not afraid to stand up for what is right and true. Our commitment is to building a solid foundation, on which our children can excel in the future as they deserve to. Our mission is to preserve the white heritage, so future generations will know and learn from their history. Our dedication is to educate, not in hatred but with pride for the race that we are a part of.
History of the Ku Klux Klan
It is generally agreed among Klan scholars that there are three distinct Klan Eras that have passed; how history will remember the current Era of the Klan is, of course, still open for debate. There are those who argue that the Klan has already moved into its Fifth Era, an event that may be not so nice, and they might well be right. Some prefer to linger in the “altruistic idealism” of the Fourth, for the good that might yet come of it. Likewise the dates, as explained below, given for the separate Eras are somewhat arbitrary.
First Era (1866-1877): Grand Wizard Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest. The Union Leagues and the Freedmen’s Bureau are being administered through the War Department. The Federal government is in the hands of radical revolutionists. The Ku Klux rise up against corrupt military governors and their Negro stooge-militia, and the Invisible Empire is born. In the several pitched battles that occur between the Ku Klux Klan and the occupation Negro-militia, the Klan nearly always comes off victorious. The puppet regimes respond by passing anti-Klan laws. There were also bogus Klans, some even directed by the Union League itself in order to commit crimes that would discredit the Klan. It was largely in response to these that Grand Wizard Forrest issued his famous disbandment order of 1869, commanding the Klansmen to destroy their regalia. By this time most of the carpetbaggers, scalawags and their Negro-stooges had been driven out of office in the South and order had been restored. The Ku Klux Klan remained active until 1873 in Mississippi and Alabama. In areas of South Carolina, Florida and Louisiana, where they were known as Knights of the White Camellia, the Ku Klux continued until the Compromise of 1877, which resulted in the passage of the Posse Comitatus and ended the last of the Reconstruction regimes. Once the Ku Klux of the First Era had achieved their objective of restoring unalienable rights and Constitutional law and order, they faithfully disbanded.
Second Era (1915-1944): The Ku Klux Klan of the Second Era is an entirely different organization, revived by Imperial Wizard William Joseph Simmons, a Freemason of the Blue Lodge and also member of the Knights Templar, to become a Lodge dedicated to the advancement of white native Americans. The Urban League and the World Zionist Congress had already been formed some three and twenty years earlier. Contemporaneous events are the organization of the NAACP and the American Jewish Congress. The Klan is essentially a Post-World War I movement, and by 1919 (when the Prohibition Amendment is ratified) it numbers just over 100,000 members, with a strong base of support among Protestant-Christian Fundamentalists, who are also strong supporters of Prohibition. Meanwhile, Joseph Pulitzer (who had bought the New York World back in 1882 to sway the Populist Party) and William Randolph Hearst initiate a vicious media attack on the Klan, based upon rumor and allegations later proven to have been false. The smear campaign backfires, the ranks of the Invisible Empire begin to swell with new applicants, and soon reach 4,000,000 members.
In 1920, the Klan, cleared by a congressional investigation, purchases Lanier University at Atlanta, and renames this The University of America. This institution is dedicated to the cultural advancement and enrichment of white native Americans. At this critical time, Dr. Hiram Wesley Evans, a Texas dentist, conspires with a number of Grand Dragons to stage a coup. Simmons agrees to step down, and accepts the honorary title of Emperor. Evans takes charge of the Klan in 1923. The Johnson-Reed Act is passed in 1924, curbing the heretofore-unrestricted inflow of immigrants into the USA, and this is largely a result of the efforts that had been made by the Ku Klux Klan and affiliated eugenics societies. In 1925, Hearst & Pulitzer seize upon the case of David Curtiss Stephenson, Grand Dragon of the Realm of Indiana, who is charged with the rape of Madge Oberholtzer, who later poisons herself and dies. Under incessant media attack for its moralistic attitudes, Klan membership plummets, so that by the time of the 21st Amendment (Repeal of Prohibition) in 1933, it is down to 100,000. Americans can feel safe to drink again. In 1944, the IRS levies a $640,000 lien against the Klan for back taxes, and Imperial Wizard James A. Colescott orders the second disbandment. The Ku Klux cease to exist as a national organization.
Third Era (1946-1974): Dr. Sam Greene revives the Ku Klux at Stone Mountain, Georgia, and the Invisible Empire is reborn at the grassroots, having no national organization. Concurrent events are creation of the United Nations, the television media, and a radical government policy of forced integration under guise of the Civil Rights movement. Primary source material of this era is difficult to obtain, and media attention is focused on the radical fringe of the Ku Klux who, as noted, had been infiltrated by government moles and agents provocateur. Period issues of the Fiery Cross, published by the United Klans under Imperial Wizard Robert Shelton, reveal a remarkable insight into events of the time, which are culminating today in the birth of the New World Order. Many elements of the Unified Conspiracy Theory, which have been rediscovered by the “Patriot-Militia” movement of the 1990s, had been originally compiled during the Third Era by the Ku Klux Klan. The media and educational blitz of hate and misinformation against the Klan take their toll, frightening away the business, professional and academic class of white males, who should have been the Klan’s strongest supporters.
Fourth Era (1974-1981): As forced desegregation programs give way to “Affirmative Action” and the advancement of minorities over whites, David Duke emerges from Louisiana to create a new and positive image for the Klan. He presents the argument of equal rights for whites, that the Ku Klux are an organization to promote the interests, ideals and culture of white native Americans. The media is livid, and does everything in its power to destroy this image of respectability, repeating its shibboleth that the Ku Klux are nothing but bigots and terrorists.
Fifth Era (1981-PRES): Louis Beam organizes the Texas Emergency Reserve to stop the irredentism of Vietnamese fishermen into Galveston Bay, and later formulates his strategy of paramilitary leaderless resistance. Former Green Beret Glenn Miller organizes the White Patriot Party in North Carolina, and is prosecuted by Morris Dees in 1986 on bogus weapons charges, following a government “set-up and sting” operation. With the emergence of gun control under the Clinton Administration, the Christian-Patriot movement sweeps across America, as mostly-rural whites begin to realize that our nation has been betrayed. Although the Patriots deny any connection with the Klan, and go to great lengths to prove they are not “racist” (as though that really makes a difference), they are, in fact, a rebirth of the Ku Klux spirit. They just haven’t discovered the fact, yet.
By the 1970s, it had become clear that post-WWII Communist revolution (led by Martin Luther King, Jews, academia and white apologists) had won the struggle over America’s future. The apparent split in the Klan between the “fourth” and “fifth” eras represents a divergence in opinion over strategic planning for the Resistance, and what will be the role and objectives assigned to the Klan. It is this author’s opinion that the confusion will be resolved over then next decade (2001-2010).
Looking back over the past 135 years of the Klan, the crucial events had occurred early in the Second Era. It appears certain that Imperial Wizard W.J. Simmons had revived the Klan with the full blessing of Freemasonry. The Ku Klux Klan had played a vital role in securing passage of the 1917 Immigration Act, the 19th Amendment (Prohibition) and the 1924 Johnson-Reed Act, which stopped the huge influx of East Europeans (most of them Jews) and Mexicans who were overrunning this country. During this period the Klan controlled nearly 100 seats in Congress, more than a dozen state legislatures and governorships, and several hundred counties.
But it was the purchase of Lanier University that marked the real high-water mark of the Klan, because it was here that a movement dedicated to the preservation of the white native American people – the sons of the Pioneers – was about to become an institution of higher learning, part of the Education Complex, and this would inevitably have lead to the academic validation of theorems such as those presented here in The Last Chuckle … Beyond Conspiracy!
THE SEVEN SYMBOLS OF THE KLAN
The language of symbolism is the most beautiful, the most expressive, and the most impressive of any language known to mankind. Who can read the story of Noah’s Ark without the church; or the story of the scapegoat, the brazen serpent, or the Feast of the Passover, without thinking of the Christ who takes away all our iniquities and delivers us from the bondage of sin?
In the sublime ceremonies of Klankraft, we take it that we use seven significant symbols, each of which convey and inculcate a very beautiful lesson, and emphasize a great Klan principle, when the language of symbols is properly understood. They are, in order of their importance: The Bible, the cross, the sword, the flag, the cross, the water, the robe and the mask.
1.) THE BIBLE
This book divine signifies that there is a God. No sane man of reasonable intelligence can look upon this sacred volume without thinking of God as its author, righteousness as its aim, and eternal life as its end. It is a constant reminder that God is our Father, life is our opportunity, and Heaven is our home. It reveals the way of life and the cause of death. It is a lamp to our feet, a light upon our pathway, and the ONLY sure guide to right living. It is the Book of Books and reveals the ONLY TRUE GOD.
In a klavern you will always find this wonderful book open at the twelfth chapter of Romans. This is the most practical and complete chapter in the whole Bible on Christian living. It is a constant reminder of the tenets of the Christian religion, and is a Klansman’s Law of Life. Every Klansman should read it the first thing every morning and endeavor to live by it during the day. “I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God” that you follow its teachings.
2.) THE CROSS
Out of the wonderful story of the sacred pages of this old Book divine comes the sad, sweet story of Calvary’s rugged but holy cross. This old cross is a symbol of sacrifice and service, and a sign of Christian religion. Sanctified and made holy nearly 19 centuries ago by the suffering and blood of the crucified Christ, bathed in the blood of 50,000,000 martyrs who did in the most holy faith, it stands in every klavern of the KU KLUX KLAN, Inc, as a constant reminder that Christ is our criterion of character and His teachings of our rule of life — blood-bought, holy, sanctified, and sublime.
It was once a sign of ignominy, disgrace, and shame; but being bathed in the blood of the lowly Nazarene, it has been transformed into a symbol of faith, hope, and love. It inspired the crusaders of the Middle Ages in their perilous efforts to rescue the Holy Land from the heathen Turks and is today being increasing hordes of the anti-Christ, and the enemies of the principles of pure Americanism.
We have added the fire to signify that “Christ is the light of the world.” As the light drives away the darkness and gloom so a knowledge of the truth dispels ignorance and superstition. As fire purifies gold, silver, and precious stones, but destroys the dross, wood, hay, and stubble, so by the fire of Calvary’s cross we mean to purify and cleanse our virtues by burning out our vices by the fire of His word. Who can look upon the sublime symbol, or sit in its sacred, holy light with out being inspired with a holy desire and determination to be a better man? “By this sign we conquer.”
3.) THE FLAG
This old flag purchased by the blood and suffering of American heroes, represents the price paid for American liberties. It is the symbol of the Constitution of the Untied States of America, free speech, free press, free schools, freedom of worship, and all constitutional laws, both state and national.
Its red is the blood of American heroes that stained 100 battlefields. Its white symbolizes the purity of American womanhood and the sanctity of American homes. Its blue is but a patch of America’s unclouded sky, snatched from the diamond-studied canopy that bends over our native land. Its stars represent an aggregation of undefeated states bound together in an inseparable union.
It has never been trailed in the dust, trampled in the mud, or defeated in battle. It has never led a retreat or been hauled down at the command of the enemy. It was purchased by the blood and sacrifice of our fathers, and we have most sacredly vowed that we will uphold and defend it with our sacred honor, our posterity, our blood, and our lives. The KU KLUX KLAN, Inc., will forever defend the principles of pure Americanism, and thus perpetuate the sacred memory of our venerable and heroic dead.
Who can stand under these Stars and Stripes, remembering the sacred traditions that entwine about its holy past, without feeling that sublime patriotism that inspired our noble sires to die for our own, our native land?
4.) THE SWORD
This unsheathed sword of steel is a symbol of law enforcement. It represents the military, or enforcement power of our government, from the President down to the constable. Its presence on our sacred alter signifies that we, as and organization, or solidly behind every law enforcement officer in the land to “help, aid, and assist the proper performance of their legal duties.” We stand unconditionally and unqualifiedly for the just and impartial enforcement of law and for the defense and protection of all rights and privileges of all citizens alike, regardless of race, color, creed, lineage, or tongue.
This sword also signifies that we are set for the defense of our flag and all that it symbolizes against the attack and people in the whole world. We believe in America for Americans, and are sworn to defend it by all justifiable means and methods from any encroachment whatever, whether it be traitors with in and enemies without.
The sword is a constant reminder of our obligation to defend our country and enforce its laws, through duly constituted authorities and justifiable means and methods. May we wield it wisely and well in defense of our country, our homes, our flag, our liberties, and humanity?
5.) THE WATER
“This God-given, powerful, life-giving fluid, more precious and far more significant than all the sacred oils of the ancients,” is a symbol of the purity of life and the unity of purpose. With this divinely distilled fluid we have been dedicated and set apart, in body, in mind, in spirit, and in life to the sacred, sublime, and holy principles of Klan Kraft. In this dedicatory service we are solemnly admonished to keep our character as transparent and as clear and clean as the liquid in this glass. A drop of liquid or blood in this crystal fluid will have the same effect as sin in our lives. May we keep our liquid clear and transparent—free from the sin stains of evil and wrongdoing?
“As water is useful to human life, so may we, as Klansmen, be useful to humanity.” As drops of water mingle and intermingle, thus becoming one solid mass, may we, as Klansmen, become so united each with the other that we will become one solid mass, or one body in Klankraft. Thus we see that water is a beautiful symbol of unity, usefulness, and purity. Who can fail to learn from these crops of water the lesson of Klannishness and of brotherhood in a common service to mankind?
6.) THE ROBE
“ The distinguishing marks of a Klansman are not found in the fiber of his garments or in his social, political, or financial standing; but they are spiritual, viz, a chivalric head, a compassionate heart, a prudent tongue and a courageous will; all devoted and consecrated to our country, our homes, our Klan, and each other.”
We use the robe to signify that we do not judge men by the clothes they wear and to conceal the difference in our clothing as well as our personality. There are no rich or poor, high or low, in Klankraft. As we look upon a body of Klansmen robed in white we are forcibly reminded that they are on a common level. By this means we also hope to conceal our identity, which is a sensible principle of Klankraft.
This robe is also a symbol of righteousness to be worn by the saints in the land of Yet-to-Come. The aged apostle a prisoner on the Isle of Patmos peered into the portals of the great beyond and caught a glimpse of the saints robed in white “which is a sensible principle of Klankraft.
“A lying scoundrel may wrap his disgraceful frame in the sacred folds of a Klansman’s robe and deceive the very elect, but ONLY a Klansman possesses a Klansman’s heart and a Klansman’s soul.” Therefore as we seek to cover here our filthy rags and imperfect lives with the robe of Klansman, may we through the grace of God and by following His Christ be able to hide the scars and stains of sin with the righteousness of Christ as we stand before His great white throne.
Who can don the white robe of a Klansman without stirring in his heart a holy desire to be found worthy to wear the white robe of the saints when he passes beyond this vale of tears?
7.) THE MASK
It is a symbol of unselfishness. With the mask we hide our individuality and sink ourselves into the great sea of Klan Kraft. Not as individuals, but as Klansmen, “We sacrifice to serve,” Our motto is, Non Silba Sed Anthar — “Not for self but for others.” Therefore, we hide self behind the mask that we may be unselfish in our service.
Who can look upon a multitude of white-robed Klansmen without thinking of the equality and unselfishness of that throng or white-robed saints in the Glory Land? May the God of Heaven, who looks not upon the outward appearance, but upon the heart, find every Klansmen worthy of the robe and mask that he wears? Then when we “do the things we teach,” and “live the lives we preach, the title of “Klansman” will be the MOST HONORABLE TITLE AMONG MEN.”
First one is the “KKK” classic and famous video “Birth of a nation”
Also some very good KLAN videos, from the past and from today!
Enjoy and see real KU KLUX KLAN!
Some infos about “UHURU”
This following article is about two years old but everyday some more news are coming!
At the moment taxis in SA, especially in Johannesburg are printed with stickers like…."UHURU NOT YET!”
Ok, Mandela is still living….and after his dead WHITE PEOPLE have time to prepare themself for 7 days before the war will begin….7 days because Mandela will put in some glass coffin, people can see him for seven days and say good bye to him……
While former South African President Nelson Mandela, 85, scoffs at rumors of ill health, plans are being made by the nation’s Communist Party to slaughter all whites in the country upon his death, G2B sources say.
One of the operations planned entails 70,000 armed black men “being transported to the Johannesburg city center within an hour” in taxicabs to attack whites.
The plans are variously dubbed “Operation Vula,” “Night of the Long Knives,” “Operation White Clean-up,” “Operation Iron Eagle” and “Red October campaign.”
Operation “Our Rainy Day” was to be carried out after the death of Nelson Mandela and would have entailed blacks being transported to the largest cities in taxis.
The assailants were expected to “take over” fuel points and massacre whites. The attacks would lead to a coup.
Sources say most blacks in the country are aware of the plans. When racial disputes occur, blacks often tell whites, “Wait until Mandela dies.”
“White people in South Africa can deny it to the end of the earth, but we are in real danger,” one resident said. “This is no joke and any person with half a brain can see that this rumor has spiraled out of control.”
Many whites are now convinced a vicious campaign of ethnic cleansing will follow Mandela’s death whenever it comes. Some are making preparations for retreats.
“I have prepared myself and we have a gathering place where we can fortify for four weeks after Mandela’s death,” said one white South African. “If nothing happens it will be a miracle.”
The Red October campaign is allegedly a Communist plot to oust President Thabo Mbeki. Mbeki would be replaced by Cyril Ramaphosa.
“I was starting to think I was going nuts!” said another white South Africa resident. “‘Operation Uhuru’ or ‘Operation White Clean-up’ is definitely no rumor. I spoke to someone who told me that some blacks in Zimbabwe have also confirmed that this ‘event’ will take place. My cousin stays on a farm in Mpumalanga, not too far from Johannesburg. A black police officer in that district told his white colleague that they are going to kill us like flies, and there is nothing we can do about it. And that they also don’t care if we know.”
Meanwhile, Mandela, obviously aware of the growing rumors, last week assured the public he is well.
“My health is all right,” he told reporters in Cape Town. “I’m doing very well. Others have gone further and said I am on the eve of going to my grave. If that day comes, I will go and knock at the door of heaven. … They will look at the list and say: ‘Your name is not here … can you try next door?’”
Concern about Mandela’s health surfaced last month when he canceled a scheduled meeting with visiting German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder. The former president was at the time relaxing on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius.
Mandela joked that when his time comes, “I will look for a branch of the ANC (the ruling African National Congress) in that world (and) I’ll join it.”
I know, a lot of people will think this is just a joke……..see the videos, the other one is the KHALID one!!! Think it is not a joke!!!
Footprints in the Sand
written by Mary Stevenson
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he
questioned the Lord about it:
“Lord, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you’d walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me.”
The Lord replied:
“My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”
It is stories like these that will drop the veil of misconception about the KKK and make people see we are not violent, hating, terrorists!!!!
I could be wrong on the dates, and maybe even misspell the name of the town, however the rest of this is factual…
In or around the early 1970’s in a small town in Georgia, I believe it’s called Carteret, or something therelike, there was an all black baptist church. Well this church, due to an accidental electrical fire, burned completely to the ground one summer. The congregation was of course devastated, because it was a poor town, and they didn’t have the funds to rebuild their beloved church. they put up flyers, and asked for help to gain funds all around town, but the supplies only trickeld in slowly as people could afford to buy a piece of plyboard here or there. One summer sunday while they were holding there services outside they saw a convoy of trucks headed down the road towards them. The first truck was full of about 20 or so fully robed klansmen. This of course scared the congregation, but much to their surprise the remaining trucks were loaded with wood, and nails, and all sorts of supplies. The head klansman approached the congregation’s leader and presented him with a gift basket full of food, and gift certificates to help out some of the members of the church. They also took about the next month of their spare time, and rebuilt the negro church from the floor up, and built it bigger, and better than it was. In the end these klansmen answered a call to their christian brothers, and sisters. There was no hate in their hearts, and they did not ask for any special recognition, the simply answered a call from the lord. This is klannish behaviour, and this is this is an example we can all take to heart. The Klan rebuilt the negro First Baptisit Church of Carteret, Georgia, and continued the legacy of a Christian Fraternal Brotherhood.
Yes, it is one of the most important things we have to do…..tell the public we are not the “bad boys” the media always told and wrote! We are in 2007 not in the 60’s!!!!!
But you also know….positive news aren’t easy to find, because media likes more the bad and horrific news!
Sad but true! Nontheless….we will work and fight for our positive image, always and forever!!!!
Orthodox Jews protest Zionism
These short videos are useful to show naive people that criticizing Zionism and Israel is not “anti-Semitic".
Rabbis protesting Israel:
Rabbis protesting Israel’s arrest of anti-Zionist Rabbis:
A non-Orthodox Jew argues with the Rabbis:
Rabbi Weiss interviewed on Fox news:
Let people know about the Jews Against Zionism, and tell people that these Jews are complaining that Zionists were involved with the Nazis.
It is difficult for a Goy to make this accusation to the typical uninformed person because most people immediately respond that we are anti-Semites, so use the anti-Zionist rabbis as an introduction to the issue that the Zionist Jews were working with the Nazis and manipulating World War 2 in order to create Israel:
This page has some very good information, also:
For example, look at this remark:
“Hateful views of Jews as being subhuman did not have to be invented by Nazi theorists such as Hitler, Goebbels, Rosenberg and Streicher. This ideology was simply adapted from statements of political Zionists…”
How about this remark from an Austrian Rabbi, Moshe Friedman, speaking at a conference at an Iranian University:
“The Zionist Regime has committed world-wide crimes behind its holocaust fabrication, presenting the Zionists as champions of suffering and persecution”
Or how about this:
“We will have to get rid of the Holocaust lies of the Zionist regime…”
When a Jew complains about Zionism or Israel, they are ignored by the media, but when a Goy makes even a mildly critical remark, we are accused of being anti-Semitic or Nazis.
13) The Kosher tax
Have you heard about the fees paid for the Kosher label on products?
Imagine if Catholics, pagans, Mormons, and homosexuals were also demanding to be paid for their special certifications. Will the goyim ever stand up to the abuse?
14) “The Weather Underground”
This video comes from mainstream television, so don’t expect the truth, but they provide some information about the terrorist group called the Weather Underground.
These terrorists got away with a lot of violence. Today we would suspect that they were secretly working with the Federal Bureau of Israel (FBI).
15) “The Lost Year In Iraq”
If you don’t watch much television you may not understand why most people are so misinformed. Here is PBS Frontline propaganda from October 2006 about the Iraq war. This is the type of material the Liberals and Democrats watch:
This can help you understand why the Liberals believe that George Bush and a few “Neocons” and Republicans are the sole cause of the worlds problems.

The Voice of the White House for November 16th 2007
Washington, D.C.,: “It has been a long-established custom for the President of the United States to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans’ Day.
This year, however, Bush did not lay the wreath but went to Texas on a vacation instead, leaving the ceremony to Vice President Cheney. Was this simple arrogance? Or stupidity? Neither. It is the story inside the White House that the Secret Service White House Detail kept him attending the ceremony because of what they called a “very credible plot to assassinate him.”
It seems, upon poking around, that George W. Bush has received more very serious death threats than any other sitting president. Last year, it was discovered that an unknown sniper had fired at the windows of the Oval Office. The rifle bullet did not penetrate the bullet-proof glass but a small crater in one of the window panes gave this away. No one on the White House roof (where there is permanent party stationed to thwart any aerial attacks on the building) heard a thing so it was suspected that a silenced weapon was used. An intense investigation failed to disclose the location of the shooter and they were not even certain when the sniping took place.
The Secret Service had learned that when Bush was visiting Mainz in Germany, that there was an equally credible report, this time from German counter intelligence, that there was a plan to blow up the President’s car while it was traveling through the German city. All of the manholes were promptly welded shut, sewer entrances heavily guarded, homes and businesses along the route evacuated and German security personnel put in all the windows.
This is a very sensitive subject here and strictly forbidden to even hint at but several workers here have refused their assignments to the White House mail room because it is strongly feared that some Chemical Warfare device or an explosive device could somehow get past the very strict security.
Please note that not one word of this ongoing problem has ever been in the American media and, by orders, never will. Arlington is large, relatively unguarded and filled with visitors, relatives of the dead, ongoing funerals and so on. Also, the area is heavily wooded, and it was believed that a sniper concealed in a tree could easily escape detection. We live in such interesting times.”
CRAZY ZIMBABWE GOVERNMENT - REALLY UNBELIEVABLE PART II
How a ‘Spirit Medium’ tricked the Zimbabwe Govt…
Date Posted: Friday 16-Nov-2007
[This is hillarious. Only in Africa folks! It also tells you a thing or two about the leaders. If the leaders had a bit of science knowledge they’d not have fallen for this. This is actually brilliant. Its too bad we’re not more deceptive ourselves… this is actually the stuff of total genius. Look at how much valuable money they wasted. It exposes them all for the complete clowns that they are. Jan]
When Nomatter Tagarira, a spirit medium, claimed that she could conjure refined diesel out of a rock by striking it with her staff, ministers in Robert Mugabe’s Government believed that they might have found the solution to Zimbabwe’s perennial fuel shortage.
After witnessing her apparently miraculous gift they gave her five billion Zimbabwean dollars in cash (worth £1.7 million at the start of the year but now worth one seven-hundredth of that) in return for the fuel. Ms Tagarira was also given a farm, said to have been seized from its white owner during Mr Mugabe’s lawless land grab, as well as food and services that included a round-the-clock armed guard on the rock in the district of Chinhoyi 60 miles (100km) from Harare, the capital.
More than a year later officials realised they had been duped. Ms Tagarira is now in custody, awaiting trial on charges of fraud or, alternatively, of being “a criminal nuisance”. Details from court papers published this week said that over 15 months, until July this year, Ms Tagarira convinced Cabinet ministers, ruling party heavy-weights and top army and police officers that by striking the rock with her staff she could produce enough fuel to supply the country for 100 years.
The legal firm representing her told The Times that she had been refused bail and no trial date had been set yet.
“It’s an outlandish story but the people in government who believed this are the same ones who believe that Mugabe’s official policy of printing money will end inflation,” said an economist, who requested anonymity.
After 27 years of economic misrule, what was once one of Africa’s most prosperous countries is in a nightmare of hyperinflation, famine and infra-structural collapse.
According to the police docket at the court, Ms Tagarira, 35, discovered a large bowser of diesel last year, suspected to have been abandoned in the hills of Chinhoyi during the country’s civil war in the 1970s.
She laid pipes from the bowser to a point at the bottom of the hill. Whenever she assembled an audience, she would strike a rock and an assistant at the top of the hill would open the tap and lo, fuel would pour out. The bowser eventually ran dry but that didn’t stop Ms Tagarira. “They would buy diesel from lorry drivers and keep it in the pipe on the pretext it was coming from a rock,” the docket said.
By June the Government had decided the claims were plausible enough to warrant an official investigation. However, where a single geologist would have sufficed, they dispatched a large “task force” of politicians and members of the security forces, led by the deputy commissioner of police.
The task force duly reported to Mr Mugabe’s politburo, the most powerful body in the country, that the liquid appearing at the rock had been siphoned into lorries and that they had driven off without problem.
However, it was when a second “task force” of ministers was sent by the politburo a month later that Ms Tagarira’s ruse ended. She “failed to prove the existence of the fuel”, it said. She disappeared and was arrested this month. “It is not the woman who ought to be arrested, it is the idiots who authorised this criminal waste of public money,” said a lawyer, asking not to be named.
I loved some of the reader’s comments on the page too:-
No surprises here, perhaps someone as yet un-indicted was going to manifest bread from the skies to make up for the dismantling of the farms. I think that, absent Western intervention, we will in a generation see the continent revert to its feral state, and become the worlds largest wild animal park.

Man in India Marries Dog As Atonement
The Associated Press
NEW DELHI - A man in southern India married a female dog in a traditional Hindu ceremony as an attempt to atone for stoning two other dogs to death , an act he believes cursed him , a newspaper reported Tuesday.
P. Selvakumar married the sari-draped former stray named Selvi, chosen by family members and then bathed and clothed for the ceremony Sunday at a Hindu temple in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, the Hindustan Times newspaper said.
Selvakumar, 33, told the paper he had been suffering since he stoned two dogs to death and hung their bodies from a tree 15 years ago.
“After that my legs and hands got paralyzed and I lost hearing in one ear,” he said in the report.
The paper said an astrologer had told Selvakumar the wedding was the only way he could cure the maladies. It did not say whether his situation had improved.
Deeply superstitious people in rural India sometimes organize weddings to dogs and other animals, believing it can ward off certain curses.
The paper showed a picture of Selvakumar sitting next to the dog, which was wearing an orange sari and a flower garland.
The paper said the groom and his family then had a feast, while the dog got a bun.
Arpaio clarifies KKK remarks
By DENNIS WELCH TRIBUNE
East Valley Tribune
updated 5:46 a.m. ET, Fri., Nov. 16, 2007
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said on national television earlier this week that “it’s an honor” to be compared to the Ku Klux Klan. On Thursday, he clarified what he meant: While it’s not an honor to be compared to a Nazi or a Klansman, it is an honor that his critics have stooped to name-calling because he’s been so effective in combating illegal immigration.
“What I’m trying to say is it’s an honor to enforce the law, so when they blast me it doesn’t bother me. It makes them look stupid,” he said.
Arpaio appeared on CNN’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on Monday, and he was asked to respond to critics who question his tactics in enforcing illegal immigration.
“Well, you know, they call you KKK. They did me. I think it’s an honor, right? It means we’re doing something,” Arpaio said, according to transcripts of the show.
After nearly half a day of telephone calls with the Tribune on Thursday, the sheriff’s communications staff added it was an “off-the-cuff remark.”
However, Rev. Oscar Tillman, the executive director of the local NAACP, said there is no honor in being compared to the KKK and cautioned Arpaio to be more thoughtful with his words in the future.
“I am very disappointed that the sheriff would say something like that,” he said. “We don’t condone any form of what the KKK stands for. We hope he’ll be more careful.”
Recently, some groups have accused the sheriff of being a racist, a charge he says is unfair and dismisses as cheap political tactics. Last summer a doctored picture of Arpaio in a Klansman outfit standing in front of a burning cross was circulated on the Internet. Under the picture the caption read: “Found guilty for doing the jobs Nobody wants. Arpaio New Political Career KKK.”
Elias Bermudez of Immigrants without Borders received it as an e-mail and then forwarded it on to others saying he agreed with its sentiments, according to published reports.
Arpaio immediately condemned the picture and Bermudez for sending it

Klan rally Tupelo Mississippi oct 20th
Thanks to Mississippi White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan for the video!
The rally in Tupelo, MS was a rousing success! Despite the presence of rowdy negroes and some deluded White traitors, there were also a good number of Klan supporters present as well. After the speaking, many local citizens came forward to request information and applications. The MWK is still receiving requests and messages of support from Tupelo and northeast Mississippi!

Immigration chief apologizes for ‘offensive’ costumes at her party
Immigration chief apologizes for ‘offensive’ costumes at her party Story Highlights
Man in prison outfit, dreadlocks and darkened skin make-up came to party
Party host was Julie Myers, head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement
She and other judges at first gave man praise for costume’s “originality”
But some were offended and Myers later apologized in an email to employees
WASHINGTON (CNN) – The Department of Homeland Security will investigate a Halloween costume party hosted by a top immigration official and attended by a man dressed in a striped prison outfit, dreadlocks and darkened skin make-up, a costume some say is offensive, the department’s secretary said.
Julie Myers, head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, called the man’s costume “offensive.”
Julie Myers, head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and host of the fundraising party, was on a three-judge panel that originally praised the prisoner costume for “originality.”
Myers later apologized for “a few of the costumes,” calling them “inappropriate and offensive.” She said she and other senior managers “deeply regret that this happened.”
A department photographer photographed Myers with the man, but the images were deleted after the costume were deemed offensive, ICE spokeswoman Kelly Nantel said.
Between 50 and 75 people attended the party, which was a fundraiser for the Combined Federal Campaign, a federal government collection of charities.
Nantel said one employee, whom she declined to identify, was wearing a black-and-white striped prison outfit, dreadlocks and a skin “bronzer” intended “to make him look African-American.” But, she said, it was not immediately apparent that he was wearing the make-up.
“Most people in the room didn’t realize he was wearing make-up at all,” she said.
“It was unintentioned. The employee did not mean to offend although there were some employees that were rightfully offended by it,” Nantel said.
Myers and the other judges “noted his costume for originality.”
“There were a couple of people who were offended,” Nantel said. “When it was confirmed through a conversation with the employee that he was wearing make-up,” Nantel said, the employee was counseled and Myers sent out a note to employees apologizing.
In a November 2 email to ICE employees, Myers wrote, “It is now clear that, however unintended, a few of the costumes were inappropriate and offensive. While we were all thrilled to be a part of the CFC fundraising effort, I and the senior management at ICE deeply regret that this happened.”
She reminded all employees to be compliant with the department’s diversity training requirement.
Myers has served as head of ICE since January of 2006 but is still awaiting Senate confirmation.
An ICE congressional liaison said ICE officials briefed congressional staffers about the costume party this week as a courtesy. But at least one congressional staffer said they approached ICE after receiving an anonymous fax about the incident.
Myers called House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Mississippi, about the incident and is expected to meet with him before the end of the week, a Thompson spokeswoman told CNN.
Myers also contacted the National Association of African-Americans in the Department of Homeland Security. In a letter to NAADHS members, the group’s vice president, Sjon Shavers, said the group “appreciates (Myers) reaching out to us so quickly in order to keep us apprised of the matter and we commend her on moving so swiftly toward appropriate corrective action.”
As head of ICE, Myers heads the law enforcement agency charged with enforcing immigration law inside the United States. It is the second largest investigative agency in the federal government, with more than 15,000 employees, including 6,000 investigators.
Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff “supports the actions that Assistant Secretary Myers has taken,” DHS spokeswoman Laura Keehner said. “We do not tolerate inappropriate behavior at DHS.”
“The Secretary has asked for an inquiry into the facts surrounding the incident. Once the facts have been determined, we will take all necessary and appropriate actions,” Keehner said.

Millions of slumdwellers evicted ahead of World Cup 2010 in South Africa
Nov 10 2007 - The shacklands of post-apartheid South Africa will only be removed to hide the shame of poverty ahead of the 2010 World Cup, slum dwellers are warning.
The ANC-regime is planning a mass-removal of millions of the country’s poorest people in the vicinity of the soccer stadiums – just to present a ‘clean, healthy appearance’ during the two weeks the FIFA international soccer tournaments are being shown on international TV.
FIFA has laid down tough laws about the appearance of host cities during the World Cup. With the World Cup being screened worldwide, Fifa has instructed that the locations of stadiums have picturesque surroundings – similar to the Soviet Union’s Potemkin villages, South Africa’s millions of often desperately poor and hungry slum dwellers must be hidden behind pretty facades.
One Fifa rule, for broadcast states that no cranes or building sites should be visible on any city’s skyline during the World Cup. This was one of the reasons the proposed Athlone stadium on the dreary, crime-ruled Cape Flats was turned down.
Cape Town’s Green Point, with its backdrop of Table Mountain, was considered to be the perfect location. Cities such as Johannesburg have also started evicting inner-city dwellers so that footage shown of South Africa ‘will project a good, clean country’.
The shackdwellers, who have not been told of their imminent evictions, have described ANC regime’s grandiose, multi-million ‘rehousing’ plans as a way of hiding the shame of post-apartheid South Africa, where more people are living in abject poverty than ever did during apartheid.
Monica Mjuqu, a shack dweller at KwaMyandu, near Durban, said the government didn’t want visiting tourists to see that millions were being spent on a single event while the rank and file people of the country lived in poverty.
“They are just ashamed of us and want us out of the way so that visitors coming to the country won’t see the conditions we live under,” said Mjuqu.
“They know that tourists travelling to the Zwelithini Stadium will come in by train and will not be impressed by the slums. But why hide what we are? If they were truly concerned about us they would have built us houses long ago. They would not have waited for 2010,” said Mjuqu, who has waited for a government house for the past 13 years. South Africa has thus far managed to build 1,5-m tiny new houses since 1994 - while some 7,5-million people are on the waiting lists and living in slum-housing.
Thembisile Mkhize, who is among the many dwellers who have spaza shops which line KwaMnyandu Station in Durban, said these forced evictions would see them lose their sources of income.
“I survive on this spaza shop. I hope that when they remove us and take us to our new houses, they will also provide us with an area where we can carry on with our business,” said Mkhize.
Turkish Helicopters Strike Inside Iraq
Nov 13, 10:57 AM (ET)
SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq (AP) - Turkish helicopter gunships attacked abandoned villages inside Iraq on Tuesday, Iraqi officials said, in the first such strike since border tensions have escalated in recent months.
A spokesman for the Kurdish regional administration, Jamal Abdullah, denied the report but said two Turkish warplanes dropped flares Monday in the mountains near Zakhu.
But Col. Hussein Tamir, an Iraqi army officer who supervises border guards, said the airstrikes occurred before dawn on abandoned villages northeast of Zakhu, an Iraqi Kurdish town near the border with Turkey. There were no casualties, he said.
A spokesman for the rebel Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, corroborated Tamir’s account of the airstrikes, and said sporadic clashes had been taking place inside Turkey since late Monday. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.
Witnesses also said the Turkish bombing lasted a half-hour in the villages.
“I was on the other side of the mountain when I heard huge explosions and could smell TNT powder all over the area,” said shepherd Ibrahim Mazori, 53. He said he sometimes spends a night or two in the villages while tending his sheep.
Several hours after the dawn airstrikes, about a dozen warplanes and at least two helicopters were seen taking off from an air base in Diyarbakir, southeast Turkey. It was unclear where they were headed.
Iraqi officials said helicopter gunships were responsible for the morning raids, while Turkish media reported warplanes were involved.
It was the first major Turkish action against Kurdish rebels since Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan met President Bush in Washington earlier this month. The United States and Iraq have pressured Turkey to avoid a large-scale attack on rebel bases in northern Iraq, fearing such an operation would destabilize what has been the calmest region in the country.
Meanwhile, Kurdish guerrillas killed four Turkish soldiers in a clash Tuesday in southeastern Turkey, Turkish Defense Minister Vecdi Gonul said.
More than 50 Turkish troops have been killed in a series of hit-and-run attacks by Kurdish rebels since late September. Turkey says it has killed dozens of rebels.
Turkey has massed tens of thousands of soldiers along the border with Iraq, but political and military analysts believe the Turkish military will concentrate for now on limited air raids and special, counterinsurgency operations inside Iraq rather than launch a large ground offensive against Kurdish rebels.
A lengthy campaign involving large numbers of troops could get bogged down as winter swiftly approaches in the mountainous border region, making it difficult for tanks and other heavy military equipment to function in bad weather.
The United States has pressed Turkey to avoid an all-out cross-border incursion, which could be politically damaging for the Turks and raise questions about whether their true goal is to punish the Iraqi Kurd administration for their separatist aspirations. Turkey fears its own Kurdish minority could become emboldened by the success of Iraqi Kurds in taking control of their own affairs.
However, air assaults conducted with the help of newly provided U.S. intelligence could allow Turkey to chip away at rebel strength and show an angry public that it is taking substantive steps to combat the rebel problem. Skeptics believe Kurdish fighters have scattered from their camps or are ensconced in hideouts that are difficult to spot from the air.
U.S. authorities have agreed to share intelligence about positions of Kurdish rebels with Turkey, possibly enabling the Turkish military to carry out limited assaults.
“The United States has declared the PKK as the common enemy. The struggle against this enemy will be maintained until it is eliminated,” Erdogan told lawmakers in Parliament Tuesday.
Kurds are a major ethnic group straddling four Middle Eastern countries - Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria - totaling about 20 million people. Most live in Turkey, primarily in the southeast, where the PKK has been fighting for autonomy since 1984 in a conflict that has killed nearly 40,000 people.
Media myths about the Jena 6
A local journalist tells the story you haven’t heard.
Opinion editor Josh Burek talks with Craig Franklin about the distorted story of the Jena 6.Jena, La. - By now, almost everyone in America has heard of Jena, La., because they’ve all heard the story of the “Jena 6.” White students hanging nooses barely punished, a schoolyard fight, excessive punishment for the six black attackers, racist local officials, public outrage and protests – the outside media made sure everyone knew the basics.
There’s just one problem: The media got most of the basics wrong. In fact, I have never before witnessed such a disgrace in professional journalism. Myths replaced facts, and journalists abdicated their solemn duty to investigate every claim because they were seduced by a powerfully appealing but false narrative of racial injustice.
I should know. I live in Jena. My wife has taught at Jena High School for many years. And most important, I am probably the only reporter who has covered these events from the very beginning.
The reason the Jena cases have been propelled into the world spotlight is two-fold: First, because local officials did not speak publicly early on about the true events of the past year, the media simply formed their stories based on one-side’s statements – the Jena 6. Second, the media were downright lazy in their efforts to find the truth. Often, they simply reported what they’d read on blogs, which expressed only one side of the issue.
The real story of Jena and the Jena 6 is quite different from what the national media presented. It’s time to set the record straight.
Myth 1: The Whites-Only Tree. There has never been a “whites-only” tree at Jena High School. Students of all races sat underneath this tree. When a student asked during an assembly at the start of school last year if anyone could sit under the tree, it evoked laughter from everyone present – blacks and whites. As reported by students in the assembly, the question was asked to make a joke and to drag out the assembly and avoid class.
Myth 2: Nooses a Signal to Black Students. An investigation by school officials, police, and an FBI agent revealed the true motivation behind the placing of two nooses in the tree the day after the assembly. According to the expulsion committee, the crudely constructed nooses were not aimed at black students. Instead, they were understood to be a prank by three white students aimed at their fellow white friends, members of the school rodeo team. (The students apparently got the idea from watching episodes of “Lonesome Dove.") The committee further concluded that the three young teens had no knowledge that nooses symbolize the terrible legacy of the lynchings of countless blacks in American history. When informed of this history by school officials, they became visibly remorseful because they had many black friends. Another myth concerns their punishment, which was not a three-day suspension, but rather nine days at an alternative facility followed by two weeks of in-school suspension, Saturday detentions, attendance at Discipline Court, and evaluation by licensed mental-health professionals. The students who hung the nooses have not publicly come forward to give their version of events.
Myth 3: Nooses Were a Hate Crime. Although many believe the three white students should have been prosecuted for a hate crime for hanging the nooses, the incident did not meet the legal criteria for a federal hate crime. It also did not meet the standard for Louisiana’s hate-crime statute, and though widely condemned by all officials, there was no crime to charge the youths with.
Myth 4: DA’s Threat to Black Students. When District Attorney Reed Walters spoke to Jena High students at an assembly in September, he did not tell black students that he could make their life miserable with “the stroke of a pen.” Instead, according to Walters, “two or three girls, white girls, were chit-chatting on their cellphones or playing with their cellphones right in the middle of my dissertation. I got a little irritated at them and said, ‘Pay attention to me. I am right now having to deal with an aggravated rape case where I’ve got to decide whether the death penalty applies or not.’ I said, ‘Look, I can be your best friend or your worst enemy. With the stroke of a pen I can make your life miserable so I want you to call me before you do something stupid.’”
Mr. Walters had been called to the assembly by police, who had been at the school earlier that day dealing with some students who were causing disturbances. Teachers and students have confirmed Walters’s version of events.
Myth 5: The Fair Barn Party Incident. On Dec. 1, 2006, a private party – not an all-white party as reported – was held at the local community center called the Fair Barn. Robert Bailey Jr., soon to be one of the Jena 6, came to the party with others seeking admittance.
When they were denied entrance by the renter of the facility, a white male named Justin Sloan (not a Jena High student) at the party attacked Bailey and hit him in the face with his fist. This is reported in witness statements to police, including the victim, Robert Bailey, Jr.
Months later, Bailey contended he was hit in the head with a beer bottle and required stitches. No medical records show this ever occurred. Mr. Sloan was prosecuted for simple battery, which according to Louisiana law, is the proper charge for hitting someone with a fist.
Myth 6: The “Gotta-Go” Grocery Incident. On Dec. 2, 2006, Bailey and two other black Jena High students were involved in an altercation at this local convenience store, stemming from the incident that occurred the night before. The three were accused by police of jumping a white man as he entered the store and stealing a shotgun from him. The two parties gave conflicting statements to police. However, two unrelated eye witnesses of the event gave statements that corresponded with that of the white male.
Myth 7: The Schoolyard Fight. The event on Dec. 4, 2006 was consistently labeled a “schoolyard fight.” But witnesses described something much more horrific. Several black students, including those now known as the Jena 6, barricaded an exit to the school’s gym as they lay in wait for Justin Barker to exit. (It remains unclear why Mr. Barker was specifically targeted.)
When Barker tried to leave through another exit, court testimony indicates, he was hit from behind by Mychal Bell. Multiple witnesses confirmed that Barker was immediately knocked unconscious and lay on the floor defenseless as several other black students joined together to kick and stomp him, with most of the blows striking his head. Police speculate that the motivation for the attack was related to the racially charged fights that had occurred during the previous weekend.
Myth 8: The Attack Is Linked to the Nooses. Nowhere in any of the evidence, including statements by witnesses and defendants, is there any reference to the noose incident that occurred three months prior. This was confirmed by the United States attorney for the Western District of Louisiana, Donald Washington, on numerous occasions.
Myth 9: Mychal Bell’s All-White Jury. While it is true that Mychal Bell was convicted as an adult by an all-white jury in June (a conviction that was later overturned with his case sent to juvenile court), the jury selection process was completely legal and withstood an investigation by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Court officials insist that several black residents were summoned for jury duty, but did not appear.
Myth 10: Jena 6 as Model Youth. While some members were simply caught up in the moment, others had criminal records. Bell had at least four prior violent-crime arrests before the December attack, and was on probation during most of this year.
Myth 11: Jena Is One of the Most Racist Towns in America. Actually, Jena is a wonderful place to live for both whites and blacks. The media’s distortion and outright lies concerning the case have given this rural Louisiana town a label it doesn’t deserve.
Myth 12: Two Levels of Justice. Outside protesters were convinced that the prosecution of the Jena 6 was proof of a racially biased system of justice. But the US Justice Department’s investigation found no evidence to support such a claim. In fact, the percentage of blacks and whites prosecuted matches the parish’s population statistics.
These are just 12 of many myths that are portrayed as fact in the media concerning the Jena cases. (A more thorough review of all events can be found at www.thejenatimes.net – click on Chronological Order of Events.)
As with the Duke Lacrosse case, the truth about Jena will eventually be known. But the town of Jena isn’t expecting any apologies from the media. They will probably never admit their error and have already moved on to the next “big” story. Meanwhile in Jena, residents are getting back to their regular routines, where friends are friends regardless of race. Just as it has been all along.

Uncovered for the first time: The Fires in California were part of a huge Plan. Why did the Americans allow California to burn ? Because it was the most elegant method to get over their Housing Credit Problem
I spent months wondering how the Americans were going to get themselves out of their financial crisis, without destroying Wall St entirely. The Dollar HAD to fall, the Recession Had to come and IF , after the Olympics the Chinese decided to invest their Dollar mountain in Holiday Homes in Florida, all the people already living there would have to shift north.
BUT how was the American ‘Plunge Protection Team’ (PPT) going to do it ? The PPT is made up of CENTRAL BANKERS, FREEMASONS and ILLUMINATI and they have practically unlimited funds at their disposal.
Their actions usually surface between 2pm and 2:30pm. Always then, when the Dow-Jones starts to crash and then suddenly finds new strength after lunch, and it surges again. However, even the strongest PPT cannot keep this up forever so the SECRET Bankers slipped into Top Gear and set fire to (Southern) California.
The Financial Logic behind the forest fires in California is amazing. Because , since the last financial boom, TOO MANY thousands of newly built houses were standing around AND every burnt-down House is a GOOD house BECAUSE it cuts back the surplus. NOT only that, BUT the House owner IS RID OF HIS LOAN PROBLEM because the houses are insured. In a few months when the Insurance money is paid out, the house prices will have fallen so far that the Fire Victim can probably afford to buy another house, as good as the burnt one, BUT for half the price.
The only ones who it really costs are the Insurance companies. MOST OF THESE INSURANCE COMPANIES are German & Swiss companies ( Munich and Hannover Rückversicherung in Germany (World trade Center Victims) and the Swiss Re. The ONLY US Insurance Company hit by this is owned by the American Billionaire Warren Buffet who had refused to invest in Sub-Prime Investments, so the PPT figured its about time he got to PAY his part in the US financial Crisis.
MASSACRE IN FINLAND
Teenager Kills 8 in High School Rampage, and died today, too!
A Finnish high school student went on a rampage in his school on Wednesday, killing eight people! Currently he died in the early morning, so that are now 9 people killed!
A screen grab from a YouTube video shows a man announcing the Finnish school shooting.
A high school stude[highlight]nt shot dead seven fellow pupils and a teacher at his school in southern Finland. He then shot himself but has not died and is being treated in hospital.
A police spokesman said eight ( today 9th’s) people were killed – five male students, two female ones and a woman who may be the headmistress of the Jokela school in the town of Tuusula.
The 18-year-old student walked into his school and opened fire on Wednesday morning. Pupils and teachers jumped out of windows in the ensuing panic.
“He moved through the corridors systematically, knocking on the doors and then shooting,” said one teacher. “It seemed totally unreal to me – a student I had taught came running towards me shouting and with a pistol in his hand.”
Fellow pupils said the attacker had indirectly announced the shooting in a video on the Internet portal YouTube under the German pseudonym “Sturmgeist89″. The video, published on Tuesday, is entitled “Jokela High School Massacre.”
It shows the building, evidently the school, and red-tinted pictures of a young man aiming a gun at the camera. There is a song playing in the background containing the lyrics: “I am your worst enemy. I am your nightmare come true.”
Finnish media reported that the shooter was a gun freak who admired the dictators Stalin and Hitler.
It was the first known school shooting in Finland, where gun ownership is fairly common by European standards, but shootings are rare.
Heidi Hagman, assistant to the municipality director in Tuusula, some 30 miles north of the capital Helsinki, said more than 400 students between the ages of 12 and 18 were enrolled at the Jokela high school.
Here is a very rare link to his youtube account…the original one is disabled now, so you can’t watch his video, nonetheless you can read his profile and you can see what was in his mind….because media will “looking” for answers, why he did this and as always they will write of lot of lies and bull*hit about the “why"! It wasn’t a playstation ego shooter, or a liberal gun control….it was a social problem, a problem of todays society! But I think media won’t write that…..!!!!
Now we have this war in our country!!!

THOUSANDS RALLY ACROSS EUROPE
Demonstrators United on Kurdish Freedom, Divided over PKK
Over 30,000 people demonstrated in cities across Germany and Europe over the weekend in support of Kurdish rights in Turkey and northern Iraq. But the question of whether to support the rebel PKK group caused tension among protestors.
The green flag of Kurdistan flew over Berlin’s Hermannplatz Sunday afternoon as the square, located in the city’s ethnically diverse Neukölln neighborhood, filled to bursting with Kurds chanting political rousers and demanding freedoms for their countrymen in Turkey and Iraq.
But the crowd seemed divided over what position to take on the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), the violent Kurdish rebel group that is classed as a terrorist organization by the US and European Union. While some protestors waved banners bearing the likeness of Abdullah Öcalan, the imprisoned PKK founder, others sought to distance themselves from the rebels.
“This is not a PKK rally,” said one man carrying a sign that read “Hands Off Kurdistan,” who preferred not to give his name. “It’s simply a demonstration for Kurdish freedom, for release from Turkish fascism, and against Turkish interference in northern Iraq.”
The demonstration in Berlin was one of several across Europe this weekend which drew a total of over 30,000 people. Five people were injured – two of them seriously – at a rally in the Austrian capital Vienna but demonstrations in Brussels and some 15 German cities remained peaceful.
There were fears that the rallies might turn violent after violence broke out between Turks and Kurds (more…) in Berlin last weekend, and police were deployed en masse to regulate each demonstration. In Berlin’s Hermannplatz, around 600 protesting Kurds were flanked by more than 1,000 police officers on all sides. “I am completely against violence today,” commented one protestor. “We want democracy peacefully, quietly.”
A local Kurdish leader told the crowd in Neukölln that he hoped tension at the Turkish-Iraqi border would not lead to persecution of Kurds in Turkey and Germany. “In Berlin, and in Turkey, the Turks and the Kurds are members of the same society,” said Yuksel Koc from Yek-Kom, the Federation of Kurdish Associations in Germany. “We are brothers and sisters. We want dialogue between the Turks and the Kurds. We want dialogue without violence, without war.” According to the German government, 500,000 of the 2.4 million Turks in Germany are of Kurdish descent, with an estimated 60,000 Kurds living in Berlin alone.
The rallies took place as Turkish leaders voiced dissatisfaction with efforts by the Iraqi government to contain the PKK, who have been attacking Turkey from strongholds in northern Iraq. Two weeks ago, Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq began conducting violent raids across the Turkish border, reigniting tensions between Turkey and Kurds in the region as well as between Turks and ethnic Kurds in Germany.
As Koc spoke, he received word that Kurdish PKK rebels in northern Iraq had released eight Turkish soldiers held captive since an Oct. 21 raid into Turkey. “That is a step towards the proper solution,” he said.
The underlying problem, said Koc, is a lack of rights for Kurds within Turkey. “We want a democratic society in Turkey, a democratic solution,” said Koc. “The Turkish government tries to destroy our autonomy. Of course, we also want a democratic society in Iraq , for the Kurdish people there.”
Not everyone at the rally was so diplomatic. At one point, a group of young men in the crowd chanted “Turkey, terrorists.” And, while speaking with SPIEGEL ONLINE, Koc was interrupted by a middle-aged man. “That’s just his opinion,” said the man, before he was pulled away by other protestors. “We do not want to bargain any more with the Turks. They have our blood on their hands.”
RIOTS IN BERLIN
Turkish-Iraq Conflict Spills Over
It may seem a long way from the front, but Berlin on Sunday got into the Turkish-Kurd conflict now flaring on the Iraqi border. A demonstration in the German capital turned violent and a number of police were injured.
Tensions in Turkey have hit the streets of Berlin.
For most Germans, the conflict between Turkey and the Kurdish separatist group PKK on the country’s border with Iraq seems, no doubt, far away. But Berliners on Sunday got a taste of the tiff up close and personal.
An anti-PKK demonstration in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district degenerated into violence between young Turks and Kurds on Sunday afternoon. By evening, a threatening mass of nationalist Turks had gathered around a Kurdish cultural center.
Several hundred people took part in the demonstration, which ran under the banner of “Unity and Fraternity between Kurds and Turks.” Roughly one hundred demonstrators were protesting peacefully, waving Turkish flags and calling out anti-PKK slogans. Several hundred police tried to dispel or round up the protestors.
“Bottles and stones were flying everywhere,” said a police spokesman. According to police sources, 18 police were injured and 15 demonstrators arrested, eight of whom remain in custody.
Claudia Schmid, head of Berlin’s security police, expects that the conflict on the border between Turkey and Irak will be catalyst for further violence on the streets of Berlin. She estimates that roughly 1,000 members of the prohibited Kurdish PKK party are living in Germany’s capital.
“The conflict in the border region with Iraq has already spilled over into Berlin. We have to be careful and look the problem straight in the eye,” she said on German radio.
At the root of the violence are Turkish nationalist groups close to the “Gray Wolves,” the unofficial militant arm of what used to be the National Movement Party, which was banned in Turkey in 1980. Schmid said that rowdy German youth who traditionally take part in the annual May 1 riots in Kreuzberg also entered the fray.
Interior Senator Ehrhart Körting (SPD) said: “This is not what we want here.” People are allowed to demonstrate in Berlin but they have to stick to the democratic rules. The young Turks – in particular right wing extremist, nationalist Turks – did not.
The police union explained that it was the Turks that went after the Kurds after the demonstration. Its press statement read: “Only the massive contingent of armed police could prevent uncontrolled violence on Berlin’s streets.” Helmut Sarwas, deputy chairman of the union, said: “People running in a mob with machetes through Kreuzberg, injuring police, must be made to feel the full force of the democratic state.” He claimed that Berlin police are having to deal with an increasing number of conflicts of international origin, in which they often end up between enemy fronts.
On Saturday, roughly 500 Kurds demonstrated in Berlin against Turkey’s threatening military intervention in northern Iraq. Three people were arrested.
This scum can do their rally in my country, and do a lot of violence, too…..what the heck is this????? Right wing Turkish scum (grey wolves) are going to march on the streets of Berlin and to the famous BRANDENBURGER TOR and shout their Nazi slogans…..and no one will stop them…..Z.O.G where are you now????? Pah!!!!
Germany is subzero!!!!
‘Mafia broke Klan code of silence’
THE FBI used mob muscle to solve the 1964 disappearance of three civil rights volunteers in Mississippi, a gangster’s ex-girlfriend has told an FBI corruption trial.
Linda Schiro said her boyfriend, mafia tough guy Gregory Scarpa, was recruited by the FBI to help find the trio’s bodies.
She said he told her he had put a gun in a Ku Klux Klansman’s mouth to force him to reveal the bodies’ whereabouts.
The FBI has never acknowledged Scarpa, dubbed “The Grim Reaper", was involved in the case.
Ex-FBI agent R. Lindley DeVecchio is charged with four counts of murder in what authorities have called one of the worst law enforcement corruption cases in US history.
Prosecutors say Scarpa plied DeVecchio with cash, jewellery, liquor and prostitutes in exchange for confidential information on suspected informants and rivals in the late 1980s and early ’90s.
Scarpa died behind bars in 1994.
The notion that Scarpa strong-armed a Klansman for information about one of the most notorious crimes of the civil rights era has been talked about in mob circles for years.
James Chaney, Michael Schwerner and Andrew Goodman were beaten and shot by a gang of Klansmen and buried in an earthen dam near Philadelphia, Mississippi.
Stymied by stonewalling Klansmen, investigators initially struggled in the case, later famously dramatised in the film Mississippi Burning.
In 1994, the New York Daily News reported that a frustrated J. Edgar Hoover had turned to Scarpa, who terrorised a Klan suspect and got him to reveal the bodies’ location.
Ms Schiro, 62, said yesterday she and Scarpa went to Mississippi in 1964 after he was recruited by the FBI.
She said they went to a hotel where the FBI were staying, and he winked at agents; one later came to their room and handed Scarpa a gun.
She said he helped find the bodies by “putting a gun in the guy’s mouth and threatening him".
Ms Schiro said an agent later returned to the room, gave Scarpa a wad of cash, and took back the weapon.
Seven people were convicted over the killings at the time, but none served more than six years.
Mississippi later reopened the case, winning a manslaughter conviction against former Klansmen and part-time preacher Edgar Ray Killen two years ago. He is serving a 60-year jail term.
I FOUND THIS STATEMENT TO THE EARLIER STORY!
What A Crock Of Bullsh*t
This Is Better Than A Holocaust Story
In 1964 three civil rights workers went to Mississippi and wound up being killed by the Ku Klux Klan. The FBI needed help, so they turn to Zionist gangsters.
Italian/Zionist Mobster Saves The Day
The FBI used mob muscle to solve the 1964 disappearance of three civil rights volunteers in Mississippi, a gangster’s ex-girlfriend testified Monday in a NY courthouse. Linda Schiro said that her boyfriend, Mafia tough guy Gregory Scarpa Sr., was recruited by the FBI to help find the volunteers’ bodies.
FBI Turned To Zio-Mafia For Help
Schiro testified Monday that she and Scarpa traveled to Mississippi in 1964 after he was recruited by the FBI. She said they walked into the hotel where the FBI had gathered during the investigation, and the gangster winked at a group of agents. She said an agent later showed up in their room and handed Scarpa a gun.
She said Scarpa helped find the volunteers’ bodies by “putting a gun in the guy’s mouth and threatening him.”
The truth is the entire episode was a set-up, just like Entebbe, or countless false flag Arab hijackings. The three were sent down by a Zionist organization. With this single stroke, the Zionists got rid of the Klan, the same way they got rid of the militias with their Oklahoma City bomb.

Germany’s persecution apparatus in turmoil!
So, all your efforts were in vain Frau Zypries!
A lot of Germans deem the country’s Minister of Justice to be an inhuman being spitting hate in all directions. While Germany held the EU-council presidency, Frau Zypries boasted that she had brought the remaining EU member countries into line. Now in the EU including Great Britain, anyone who expressed doubts about the Holocaust story and published non-admissible facts would be thrown into prison. Today anyone doing such a thing anywhere in the EU, said Frau Zypries–with her chest puffed out and a satanic grin on her face–would be “mercilessly” thrown into jail. However, just one year later the Spanish justice put an abrupt end to this furious vixen’s violation of human rights. On the 8th November 2007 the Spanish Constitutional Court squashed this harassment law, exported to Spain by the Federal Republic of Germany, in its entirety.
In 1998 judge Santiago Vidal condemned the Spanish intellectual and journalist Pedro Varela before the Municipal Court Barcelona (Juzgado Penal Nº 3) to a prison sentence of five years for “Holocaust denial” and “racism". At the same time Vidal ordered the destruction of 20,000 confiscated books.
The conviction of Spain’s most active of human rights campaigner was based on the Holocaust denial law created in 1996 under pressure from Germany (articulo 607.2, Código Penal).
However, both Catalonian courts of appeal, consisting of three judges of Catalonia’s highest court (Audiencia Provincial), decided that article 607.2 of the Spanish Criminal Code (Holocaust denial law) was incompatible with the human right of freedom to express one’s opinion. Therefore, the judges of “Audiencia Provincial” referred the case of Pedro Varela to a fundamental decision by the Spanish Constitutional Court of Justice in Madrid.
Pedro Varela’s passport was confiscated and during a period of ten years he was subjected to unbelievable repressive measures. He not only had to endure repeated raids but also put up with large financial losses resulting from the renewed seizure of thousands of books.
On the 8th November, 2007, eleven years after the start of the prosecution of the human rights activist, the 12 highest judges of Spain’s Constitutional Court in Madrid (El tribunal Constitucional) decided not only regarding the Holocaust denial law but also on the fate of the persecuted dissident Pedro Varela.The decision by Spain’s highest judges will not be to the liking of Germany’s Minister of Justice Brigitte Zypries and her band of persecutors at all. The “Holocaust denial law", according to the highest Spanish judges, is not compatible with the right guaranteed in the Spanish Constitution of the free expression of opinion.
The judges did not accept as valid the argument that denying the Holocaust would violate the human dignity of Jews and threaten their existence. The judges argued that the free expression of opinion could possibly offend some individual or group of individuals–indeed this is the distinguishing characteristic of freedom of expression of opinion. According to the judges one can not make the basic human right of freedom of expression of opinion dependent on the sensitivities of an individual or of certain groups.
In Spain from now on Holocaust research may no longer be prosecuted as a criminal offence.
Further details to this very significant judicial ruling for Europe will follow.
Not for self, but for others.
