Burning Conscience: Israeli Soldiers Speak Out

A searing interview with Avichai Sharon and Noam Chayut, both veterans of the Israeli Defense Forces and members of Breaking the Silence. Sharon and Chayut served during the second intifada, an on-going bloodbath that has claimed the lives of over three thousand Palestinians and nine-hundred-fifty Israelis. After thorough introspection, these young men have chosen to speak out about their experiences as self-described "brutal occupiers of a disputed land." Producer: Sat Gwin

US Media Provides the Treasonous Ignorance Americans Need to Enable Another 9/11.

When mainstream media (MSM) organises to coverup crimes of mass murder they are committing nothing less than a conspiracy to commit high treason.

Ignorance doesn't equate to stupidity, but the MSM has promoted treasonous ignorance through censorship to shield the most likely suspects in Bush's dubious "War On Terror"

An Interview with two Israeli Defense Force (IDF) veterans shows the flip-side of the problems the 9/11TRUTH groups face in achieving a level of public acknowledgement and debate in the US. The frustration of these brave IDF veterans is a mirror to the resistance the 9/11 TRUTH groups experience in their attempt to educate the public to the point of activism.

Society will politely acknowledge the 9/11 facts but remain silent on the reality of what they have learned. Debating the ethics and morality of their murderous leaders is just too risky. In America, the 9/11 lie is acknowledged far more than it's debated. The public feels powerless to act on issues that threaten their world-view and are perceived as too enormous and fearful to dare debate in public.

Olmert And Bush—Leader And Vassal

By Paul Craig Roberts

http://vdare.com/roberts/080116_olmert.htm

After pandering to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s right-wing government last week, US president George W. Bush carried the Israeli/neoconservative campaign against Iran to Arab countries. Sounding as authentic as the "Filipino Monkey," Bush told the Arab countries that "Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terror," and that "Iran’s actions threaten the security of nations everywhere."

To no effect. Every country in the world, except America, knows by now that the US is the world’s leading state sponsor of terror and that the neoconservative drive for US hegemony over the world threatens the security of nations everywhere.

But before we get into this, let’s first see what Bush means by "terrorist" and Iran’s sponsorship of terrorism.

Fragments on 9-11 Truth, Justice and Peace from a ‘Young’ Jewish Intellectual: Part 1- "Breaking the Silence Barrier"

"My column will include voices so often excluded, people whose views the media mostly ignore, issues they distort and even ridicule."— Amy Goodman from her first piece for her weekly column "Breaking the Sound Barrier"

“Of course, there will be those who demand silent obedience. We expect that from the ultra-right, and anyone with a little familiarity with history will expect it from some left intellectuals as well, perhaps in an even more virulent form. But it is important not to be intimidated by hysterical ranting and lies and to keep as closely as one can to the course of truth and honesty and concern for the human consequences of what one does, or fails to do. All truisms, but worth bearing in mind. Beyond the truisms, we turn to specific questions, for inquiry and for action.”—Noam Chomsky from the last page in his pamphlet “9-11”

U.S. checking possibility of pumping oil from northern Iraq to Haifa, via Jordan

The United States has asked Israel to check the possibility of pumping oil from Iraq to the oil refineries in Haifa. The request came in a telegram last week from a senior Pentagon official to a top Foreign Ministry official in Jerusalem.

The Prime Minister's Office, which views the pipeline to Haifa as a "bonus" the U.S. could give to Israel in return for its unequivocal support for the American-led campaign in Iraq, had asked the Americans for the official telegram.

1979 - The Birth Year of "International Terrorism"

Recent research by authors Nafeez Ahmed, and Diana Ralph, points to the year 1979 as a turning point for Western policy that on the one hand began to facilitate covert warfare and destabilization via the Mujihadeen in Afghanistan, and on the other began to propagate a meme that has become known as "International Terrorism". Most recently, Ahmed gave a talk at the Indian YMCA in London that reiterates his focus on that year.(1)

1979 was definitely pivotal for the United States, as the CIA convinced President Jimmy Carter to sign off on covert operations in Afghanistan, before the Soviet invasion, that would ultimately produce "al Qaeda".(2) Research that dates back to 1982 reveals that at the same time that the CIA was incubating the nascent 'Arab Foreign Legion' in Afghanistan, in Israel, some familiar names were busily framing the concept of "International Terrorism" at the 'Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism'. A paper by a student named Phillip Paul titled, “International Terrorism”: The Propaganda War, (available at the San Francisco State University Library for review), has been cited separately by independent researcher Diana Ralph as well as Ahmed.

Israel's Post-911 Economic Boom

Saturday June 16, 2007
The Guardian

Gaza in the hands of Hamas, with masked militants sitting in the president's chair; the West Bank on the edge; Israeli army camps hastily assembled in the Golan Heights; a spy satellite over Iran and Syria; war with Hizbullah a hair trigger away; a scandal-plagued political class facing a total loss of public faith. At a glance, things aren't going well for Israel. But here's a puzzle: why, in the midst of such chaos and carnage, is the Israeli economy booming like it's 1999, with a roaring stock market and growth rates nearing China's?

Scrutiny of Israel and AIPAC Heats Up - Where is 9/11 Truth?

Why is the Peace Movement Silent About AIPAC? by John Walsh

Lobby argues that good Americans spy for Israel by Justin Raimondo
http://www.arabamericannews.com/newsarticle.php?articleid=8609

For those of us concerned with the potential of Israeli involvement in the events of 9/11 we would be wise to keep tabs on what's going on in the halls of power and justice by reading the above articles.

What is clear is that the Israel Lobby has circled the wagons in anticipation of the publicity that (we hope) will surround the upcoming trial of AIPAC spies Rosen and Weissman. It is also clear that Democrats in Congress are now ready to acknowledge that the growing rhetoric aimed at Iran is in fact reflected by pressure from AIPAC on Nancy Pelosi to remove language from a recent appropriations bill that would have required Bush to seek Congress' authorization before launching any attack on Iran.

What Did Israel Know in Advance of the 9/11 Attacks?

On the afternoon of September 11, 2001, an FBI bulletin known as a BOLO ­- "be on lookout" -- was issued with regard to three suspicious men who that morning were seen leaving the New Jersey waterfront minutes after the first plane hit World Trade Center 1. Law enforcement officers across the New York-New Jersey area were warned in the radio dispatch to watch for a "vehicle possibly related to New York terrorist attack":

White, 2000 Chevrolet van with 'Urban Moving Systems' sign on back seen at Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ, at the time of first impact of jetliner into World Trade Center Three individuals with van were seen celebrating after initial impact and subsequent explosion. FBI Newark Field Office requests that, if the van is located, hold for prints and detain individuals.

The 9/11 Commission and the Art Student Memo

Referring to the Counterpunch article, "What Did Israel Know in Advance of the 9/11 Attacks?" in the VOL. 14, NO. 3/4 issue, Cockburn and St. Clair allude to an article from 2005 that inspired Ketcham to update his story on the mysterious Israelis.

I blogged on it last year at GNN, but I'm going to re-post the entire article by Keith Phucas (of ABLE DANGER fame) here for posterity. Below that, I'll post some bullet points from Gerald Shea's memo that remains to date the best memo detailing the various reports about the "art students". Also, I will post a link to a PDF copy of Shea's report that you can D/L from the Antiwar.com server, courtesy of Justin Raimondo.

Sept. 11 riddles remain

By: KEITH PHUCAS, Times Herald Staff

NORRISTOWN - Accusations that the 9/11 Commission ignored information about a defense intelligence operation "Able Danger" that targeted al-Qaida in 2000 has renewed criticism that the panel may have passed up other intriguing leads gathered in the months before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

A memorandum sent to the 9/11 Commission, and Senate and House intelligence committees in September 2004, suggests that young Israelis who canvassed dozens of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) offices in 2000 and 2001 trying to sell paintings to federal workers, may have been spying not only on the DEA, but also on Arab extremists in the United States - including the Sept. 11 hijackers who were living in Florida and New Jersey.
