96% OF THE WORLD'S JEWS ARE ASHKENAZIM, WHO CAN TRACE THEIR ANCESTRY TO KHAZARIA, A CONGLOMERATE OF ARYAN TURKISH TRIBES WHICH CONVERTED TO JUDAISM IN A.D. 740.
THE ASHKENAZIM HAVE NO HISTORIC RIGHTS TO 'RETURN' AND OCCUPY LAND IN THE MIDDLE EAST. THEY SHOULD 'TRANSFER' TO THE STEPPES OF SOUTHERN RUSSIA OR STRAIGHT TO MONGOLIA WHERE ALL TURKISH TRIBES ORIGINATED!

8:42 Jesus said to the Jews, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me."
8:43 "Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word."
8:44 "You are of your father the devil and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar and the father of lies."
8:45 "But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me." [JOHN 8:42-45]

ISRAELI AND AMERICAN WAR CRIMES IN PALESTINE

Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me!

The Guardian - Steve Bell on the war in Iraq and the electoral victory of the American Taliban on November 2, 2004.

The American Taliban is the 'unholy alliance' of the super-rich U.S. investors, neo-conservative jingoists and Zionist "Evangelical Christians" in the rural states, typically the poorest people in America, who have succeeded in replacing the American democracy with an "IRONFISTED THEOCRACY WITH THE PRESIDENT AS MULLAH AND POLICY AS RELIGIOUS WAR".
The electoral process is controlled by neo-conservative 'spin doctors' and by Zionist 'Evangelical' pastors who tell the brainwashed, functionally illiterate masses how to vote, under penalty of eternal punishment in hell.
For the American Taliban abortion is a mortal sin, and rightfully so, but killing tens of thousands of human beings, men, women and children is perfectly all right, as long as the victims are non-American goim (cattle, according to the Talmud). According to a 1997 poll, only one out of three U.S.citizens is able to name the most basic of the Christian texts, the four Gospels. Only one out of three U.S. citizens has heard about the Sermon on the Mount.
A recent survey by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland found that nearly 70 percent of President Bush's supporters believe the U.S. has come up with "clear evidence" that Saddam Hussein was working closely with Al Qaeda. A third of the president's supporters believe weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq. And more than a third believe that a substantial majority of world opinion supported the U.S.-led invasion.
Ignorance is bliss! The crass manipulation of the incredible ignorance and of the functional illiteracy of the American masses constitutes the basis of the new theocratic regime of the American Taliban.

Alexander Jakobson - HAARETZ: A DEGRADING MEMORIAL - 'The question is whether the ultra-Orthodox public in Israel, including its leaders and its spokesmen, is prepared to rid itself entirely of THE VIEW THAT NON-JEWS ARE NOT REALLY HUMAN BEINGS.'
The author is definitely courageous, but he limits his criticism to the observant Orthodox Jews who just implement the teachings of the TALMUD (Mischnah and Gemarah), a collection of the most extreme hate literature in the history of mankind, responsible for causing endless sufferings to Jews and non-Jews alike for several millennia. Needless to say, criticizing the dehumanizing teachings of the Talmud brings an instantaneous accusation of being anti-Semitic, a very ironic misnomer, given the fact that in Palestine and Israel almost all of the Semitic people are Arabic. The SEPHARAZIM or the Semitic Jews represent only 6% of the world Jewry, while 94% of all Jews, the ASHKENAZIM, are as Aryan as the Germans or the Turks, their forefathers in the Khazar Empire. - 19 August 2004

Shulamit Aloni - HAARETZ: LOSING GOD'S IMAGE - A very powerful indictment of the so-called "Jewish religion" by a very courageous Jewish writer. Read about the Israeli rabbis who make "halakhik decisions" (halakha is the Jewish Law) stating it is perfectly all right to kill non-Jewish (goim) civilians, men, women and children and to rob or destroy their property, which is what the Israeli army is doing with impunity using U.S. made weapon systems, fully paid by the idiotic American taxpayers like you and me, courtesy of the criminal U.S. politicians.
Let me quote from one of the "luminaries", Rabbi Israel Hess: "WE ARE ALL OBLIGATED TO CARRY OUT THE GENOCIDE OF THE PALESTINIANS". Are you surprised? You shouldn't be, since their "halakhic decisions" are in accordance with the teachings of the TALMUD (Mischnah and Gemarah). This is why the Universal Church ordered the Talmud to be burnt at stake several times in the last five centuries. - 19 September 2004

Brian Knowlton - New York Times: RUSSIA TO DELIVER NUCLEAR FUEL TO IRAN - An extremely positive development that satisfies Iran's legitimate requirements for "clean" nuclear power and guarantees the return of the spent uranium rods to Russia. King George's neo-cons are barking in desperation because they fully realize that this agreement destroys any opportunity for a Zionist-style "regime change" in Tehran, under the pretext that Iran may be pursuing the enrichment of spent fuel rods to obtain weapons-grade plutonium. - February 28, 2005

No mention of North Korea which admitted last week it has nuclear weapons. The "main threat" is Iran, which "supports the insurgents in Iraq", according to these professional liers. The Iran mullahs, who are all Shia, have invested millions of dollars in Ayatollah Sistani's electoral victory in Iraq. The Sunni insurgents are killing Iraqi Shiites left and right. Only a mentally retarded general, and we have dozens of those, can claim that the Iran Shiite mullahs are supporting the Sunni insurgents in Iraq.
Never mind the absence of elementary logic, the party line of the American Taliban is that WAR AGAINST IRAN MUST START SOON, therefore the propaganda machine is being cranked up. It is the duty of the international community, of all honest human beings, to stop the American Taliban dead in its tracks before it is too late... - 17 February 2005

The pilots reported that smoke rose to a height of 15,000 feet. 24800 housing structures out of a total of 28,200 were completely destroyed and up to 480,000 people, almost all civilians, were murdered by the Allied war criminals. Instead of death or prison sentences, the perpetrators of this horrenduous crime against humanity received medals and fat military pensions.

According to this 86-year-old, America was not just lucky to have a president selected and annointed by God Himself, but it clearly got a clairvoyant president who can see into the future, a prophet of the Old Testament, no less! Way to go, George, for someone who cannot pronounce "nuclear"! (it's always "nucular" for him - maybe that's why he couldn't find Saddam's weapons)...

Mark Oliver - The Guardian: BUSH SWORN IN FOR SECOND TERM - Why are all despots and tyrants obsessed with words like "freedom" and "liberty"? This despicable war criminal, responsible for Guantanámo Bay, for Abu Ghraib, for the destruction of Najaf and Falluja, is the first Maoist President of the U.S.A. and is attempting to implement Mao Dze Dong's dictum: "Political power comes through the barrel of a gun!", or rather gunship and tank firepower, in Iraq and elsewhere. A view that was also enthusiatically shared by the other paragon of "freedom and democracy", Iosif Vissarionovich Djugashvili a.k.a. STALIN!
The national anthem of the Soviet Union, approved by Stalin in 1943, includes words like: "Ia drugoi takoi strani ne znaiu, gde tak SVOBODNO budet chelovek! - I don't know of any other country where the human being would be so FREE!" That is the country where 64 million people were exterminated from 1917 to 1989, according to Alexandr Soljenitsyn's statistics. (By the way, this is also the CURRENT national anthem of Russia, which KGB colonel Vladimir Putin brought back after making a couple of cosmetic text changes.)
When I was in elementary school in Romania, the teachers were tasked to teach us slogans like: " Stalin si poporul rus, LIBERTATE ne-au adus!- Stalin and the Russian people have brought us LIBERTY". I protested: "But, Miss, Stalin brought us the Soviet Army..." The teacher was smart enough to cut me off and send me home for three days, before I could finish the sentence.

Staff - Reuters: U.S. REPORTEDLY MULLING ELITE HIT-SQUAD FOR IRAQ - What a stroke of genius! First you hold "elections", then you send in the "elite hit squads" to kill all those who voted against Allawi and the other traitors. Easy stuff! You have all the names and the election ballots. It's a great formula for implementing "democracy" in Iraq!
It reminds me of sergeant major Batcu, a concentration camp guard in the 1960's, who used to proudly recite his creed: "If you are not with us, you are against us and if you are against us, why should we let you live?" - Flawless logic, isn't it?
