GORDON DUFF: IS ISRAEL RUNNING THE TALIBAN?

Must read of the day:  TODAY’S SUICIDE BOMBING IN QUETTA, PAKISTAN LEAVES A TRAIL TO TEL AVIV
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor VeteransTodaySeptember 3, 2010


Quetta, Baluchistan, September 3, 2003 (Veterans Today)  Today, 43 Pakistanis were killed in a terror attack, killed for supporting Palestinians in Gaza.  The signs had been there, the Wikileaks attempt to put responsibility for the Taliban on Veterans Today editor General Hamid Gul.  This was debunked in a heartbeat.  This attack was vicious and clearly the work of Israel.   This was a terror attack meant as a message to the people of the world telling them that if they rally in support of those imprisoned in Gaza, they will be murdered.
Is it a gift for the Jewish people of Israel, another revenge attack, seemingly in response to the shooting of 4 Israeli Jews in Hebron, an attack curiously timed to disrupt peace talks between Jewish and Muslim Palestinians in Washington?
 This is far from the first time Israel has been caught.  The PKK, the Kurdish terrorist group, communists, who have been attacking Turkey from their mountain “caves” in Iraq for over 40 years have long been trained, funded and even recruited by Israel’s Mossad.  Now the partnership between India and Israel, helped along, not only by the CIA, the Kazrai brothers “corporation” and MI -6 is becoming difficult to ignore.
With continual terror attacks a daily part of life in Pakistan, several in Lahore this week, there is no ignoring the real culprits.  Nearly every contracting firm the United States uses in, not only Afghanistan but Pakistan as well, is filled to the brim with Israeli operatives.  Working with them is the massive CIA assisted drug cartel and its worldwide network of private airlines for shipping heroin and cash and a dozen nations that take part.
SUSPECTED DRUG RUNWAY IN BALOCHISTAN, SOUTH OF KANDAHAR
All of this is only window dressing for the real show.  In 2003, Israel got America to destroy Iraq, well, and itself also.  Iraq was suicide for America.  It wasn’t until 2007 that America had discovered its own corpse.
The war in Afghanistan is destroying, not only that country but Pakistan as well.  Israel will not allow an Islamic nuclear power to threaten their control over Asia.  The real target has always been control of the Suez Canal and the real prize, India.  What appears to America to be an economic powerhouse is a deeply divided and trouble nation beset by enemies and ready to be turned into a surrogate military power and then stripped to the bones.
This is what happened to the United States.
Pakistan is important.  For years, the “CIA” and other intelligence organizations have been in Baluchistan sneaking in and out of Iran blowing things up.  How much of that is CIA and how much is Mossad, nobody knows for sure.  This is another terrorist organization, called the “Jundallah.”  Like the PKK in Turkey and the Tehrik-i-Taliban, the terrorist group making life in Pakistan a living hell, the Jundallah get all the money, weapons, training, transportation and maybe more, much more, they need to fight covert wars against the targets of Tel Aviv.
Baluchistan also has several small airports where heroin can be loaded and flown out.  American contracting firms control those facilities and have for years.  Narcotics are delivered there from Afghanistan and leave on aircraft meant to supply America’s “black ops” against, well, whoever it is that Israel is angry at.
For Americans, the real question, if Israel is funding terrorist organizations attacking, not only Iran but America’s NATO partner Turkey and longtime ally Pakistan, facts long in evidence everywhere but in the American press, are there also terrorist attacks against American forces and America itself being planned?  Have any been carried out and if so, how many?
Does Israel gain when America marches to war against her perceived enemies?  Is it a long declared policy to do anything necessary, not actually to enhance Israel’s survival, never really in question at all, not really ever actually, but their dominance?
What was obvious today is that the terror attack in Pakistan had nothing to do with Taliban of any kind.  It had only one goal, to punish the people of Pakistan, ethnic Pushtu’s, not the ruling Punjabi’s, for supporting the Palestinian cause and supporting a two-state solution during the current peace initiative sponsored by President Obama.  We know Israel goes after anyone who stands up for Palestine but killing dozens of civilians at a rally in Quetta, Baluchistan is an escalation, even for Israel. 
No, this isn’t an escalation in violence, it isn’t even close to the biggest body count Israel has run up. 
Perhaps the worst part of it is that nobody will say a word about this.  Pakistan is broke, even by American standards.  They survive off American foreign aid, money they continue to receive as long as they never say a word about Israel of publicly attribute the wave of terrorism they have been subjected to where the real blame belongs.  I have seen the head of Pakistan’s intelligence agency, the current Director General of the ISI, hint at Osama bin Laden being dead.  I have interviewed him about it personally.
I was sworn to keep the discussion private and confidential.  I will keep my word.
Pakistan is being held hostage.  Mrs. Clinton continually chastises them about failing to find long dead Osama bin Laden, the imaginary planner of 9/11.  Former ISI Director General Hamid Gul, now retired and known for his outspoken honesty, places the blame for 9/11 exactly where it belongs, where he placed on the day it happened.  With the Israeli lobby in control of Washington and Washington’s money in control of Pakistan, this won’t be the last terror attack.
The next time anyone anywhere tries to aid Palestinians or to get the truth about Israel’s apartheid policies and ethnic cleansing past the corporte controlled press, expect another suicide bombing.  Look at the way the press handled Israeli murder and piracy with the Freedom Flotilla?  Less than 5% of Americans know that Israel was caught back in 1967 knowingly attacking an American ship, the USS Liberty.  It wasn’t the first Israeli terror attack on Americans and there have been dozens since.  You will never read a word about them.
With another 9/11 anniversary coming up, Palestine peace talks going on and Israel doing everthing in its power to force America to attack Iran, security forces throughout the United States are on high alert for Islamic terrorists.
Everyone ‘in the know” understand that the warning is really for Israeli terrorists.  Will the United States Air Force be there if needed, unlike during 9/11?  Will terrorists all show up with fresh student visas courtesty of the State Department like during 9/11? 
Are we past the time when America is willing to look the other way when a thousand strange coincidences bring about that “perfect storm,” exactly when and where needed, a “storm” to eclipse 9/11 in horror, enough to send a war weary people, long lied to, no longer trusting their government, down the road to war for Israel again?
Four dead Israelis in Hebron was a clue.  The 43 dead in Quetta is another.  The imaginary Amsterdam hijackers were meant to be one also.  More will come with each day, more clues, more planted news stories, more staging, more preparing the minds to expect what so many of us know is coming.
Who do you think recruits terror cells?  Who has been doing it forever?  Who can travel freely, use passports of any nation and has endless money?  You think there really is an Al Qaeda?
Why does everything Al Quade do only help Israel?
Is Al Qaeda another Mossad front?

The Green Party for Green Bucks

From the American Monetary Institute:
Some exciting and historic news from the U.S. Green Party!
This past week (end of August 2010) the Green Party's National Committee working on monetary and economic policy matters have approved an historic, comprehensive Monetary Reform Plank in their 2010 Platform which actually does the job, as it includes all three of the necessary elements to achieve real reform.  We're happy to report this mirrors the proposed American Monetary Act.

Here below and linked at http://www.monetary.org/greenpartymonetaryplank.html is what the U.S. Green Party approved, please read it carefully.

Monetary Reform (Greening the dollar)
"While the banking reforms outlined in the above 12 points are very important to ameliorate the present crisis in our banking system, to affect long term, transformative change, it is imperative that we restructure our poorly conceived monetary system.  The present mis-structured system of privatized control has resulted in the misdirection of our resources to speculation, toxic loans, and phony financial instruments that create huge profits for the few but no real wealth or jobs.   It is both possible and necessary for our government to take back its special money creation privilege and spend this money into circulation through a carefully controlled policy of directing funds, through community banks and interest-free loans, to local and state government entities to be used for infrastructure, health, education, and the arts This would add millions of good jobs, enrich our communities, and go a long ways toward ending the current deep recession.

To reverse the privatization of control over the money issuing process of our nation's monetary system; to reverse its resulting obscene and undeserved concentration of wealth and income; to place it within a more equitable public system of governmental checks and balances; and to end the regular recurrence of severe and disruptive banking crises such as the ongoing financial crisis which threatens the livelihood of millions; the Green Party supports the following interconnected,

Green Solutions:
1. Nationalize the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, reconstituting them and the Federal Reserve Systems Washington Board of Governors under a new Monetary Authority Board within the U.S. Treasury. The private creation of money or credit which substitutes for money, will cease and with it the reckless and fraudulent practices that have led to the present financial and economic crisis.

2. Create a Monetary Authority, which will, with assistance from the FDIC, the SEC, the U.S. Treasury, the Congressional Budget Office, and others, redefine bank lending rules and procedures to end the privilege banks now have to create money when they extend their credit, by ending what is known as the fractional reserve system in an elegant, non disruptive manner. Banks will be encouraged to continue as profit making companies, extending loans of real money at interest; acting as intermediaries between those clients seeking a return on their savings and those clients ready and able to pay for borrowing the money; but banks will no longer be creators of what we are using for money. Many new forms of banks will be encouraged such as community banks, credit unions, etc., see 11 and 12 above) 

3. The new money that must be regularly added to an improving system as population and commerce grow will be created and spent into circulation by the U. S. Government for infrastructure, including the human infrastructure of education and health care. This begins with the $2.2 trillion the American Society of Civil Engineers warns us is needed to bring existing infrastructure to safe levels over the next 5 years. Per capita guidelines will assure a fair distribution of such expenditures across the United States, creating good jobs, re-invigorating the local economies and re-funding government at all levels. As this money is paid out to various contractors, they in turn pay their suppliers and laborers who in turn pay for their living expenses and ultimately this money gets deposited into banks, which are then in a position to make loans of this money, according to the new regulations."
End

Rawles: ‘If the Power Grid Goes Down, I Would Not Recommend Being In a Town of More Than 500 Population’

From SHTFPlan September 3rd, 2010:


Author of How to Survive the End of the World As We Know It James Rawles joins Reginald Kaiglerand Doc of The Watchmen for a discussion about potential collapse scenarios and ways to survive if a catastrophic event were to occur.
Some of the topics covered include:
  • Collapse triggers
  • Die off scenarios
  • Food storage techniques
  • Antibiotics
  • Weapons and Ammo
This is one we recommend you listen to in full.
(Interview follows excerpts and commentary)
James Rawles on events that may trigger catastrophe:
There are so many different scenarios. If we were to just look at the current economic situation I think the big trigger will be the repudiation of American treasury paper by foreign investors. If they say, he we’re not going to roll over the American treasury paper anymore, we’re going to take our ball and bat and go home, then that very well could trigger an economic meltdown starting with a collapse in confidence of the United States dollar and it could very quickly click over into a mass inflation - very quickly followed by major rioting in the major cities and the whole cascade from there a lot like how I described in my novel [Patriots].
But there’s umpteen other scenarios.  You know there’s a flake [sic] scenario, there’s a global war scenario, nuclear war scenarios - there’s so many different things that can go wrong and any number of different reasons why life as we know it could cease very quickly.
There are obviously a variety of different, unrelated situations that our society could encounter that would end “life as we know it.” Now, this does not necessarily mean that the entire globe will be wiped out by an asteroid the size of Texas (though, we won’t completely rule this out as a possibility). What the end of the world as we know it actually means is that we could see a complete shift in how our society operates, meaning that  there may not be paper currency, ATM machines, movie theaters, or Starbucks coffees on every corner - perhaps for a time all commerce and trade would come to a screeching halt until whatever caused the imbalance begins to recover.
Scenarios like this are not only likely, but occur regularly as evidenced by the many wars of the past century, hyperinflation (i.e. Zimbabwe, Weimar), and natural disasters (i.e. Hurricane Rita and the Asian Tsunami). Rather than watching these catastrophes playing out on television or in history books, to truly prepare yourself and your family for potential catastrophes, it is important to think in terms of them happening to you directly and to consider how you would respond.
James Rawles on Grid Scenarios:
Once you get past about 500 people, it really becomes unmanageable, especially with no radio communications and no phones to think that you can pull together as a community. Once you lose that sense of community, it’s basically every man for himself. I think people will go kind of Mad Max in an absolute worst case with the power grid down.
We’re looking at two different situations. Again, in the former situation where the power grid stays up, you might do well in a city of five or ten thousand people.
If the power grid goes down, again, I would not recommend being in a town of more than 500 population.
There’s definitely going to be a public health crisis at the very least, if not a situation where the cities become absolutely unlivable very quickly - I’m talking within two weeks.
Mr. Rawles points out the potential for “every man for himself” Mad Max scenarios as being likely outcomes in the event of a down grid. Whether you’re in the city or in rural parts of America you will either be the one looking for food and resources because you didn’t prepare, or you will be the one defending against Mad Max with a full belly and a self defense strategy.
Winter vs. Summer:
If we were to have the onset of a collapse in summertime we’d see a public health crisis very quickly. If it were to happen mid-winter we’d actually see more people dieing of exposure, dieing of the cold, than we would of dieing of disease, especially int he Eastern United States and the North East.
It doesn’t take too long a period before blankets are insufficient - people don’t have any alternate source of heat they’ll be freezing to death in large numbers.
Then what happens in the next spring when everything thaws out? Then you have a really big public health crisis because not only are you worried about human waste - you’re also worried about thousands upon thousands of unburied bodies.
We could be in a situation where we literally could see a 90% die-off in the major metropolitan regions. Ninety percent population loss and that’s just based on loss of the power grid alone, not counting the violence of people as food supplies dwindle, going from house to house taking what little is left - fighting over the scraps in effect.
A recent report from the Center for Security Policy suggests that Mr. Rawles’ estimation of a 90% die-off is right on target, as previously discussed in Within One Year 9 Out of 10 Americans Would Be Dead.
What to do:
I highly recommend that if any of your listeners have the opportunity, if they’re self employed or if they can find employment, or if they’re retired, that they move to a lightly populated rural region that’s in a food producing area. In the event of a true worst-case scenario, I refer to it as When the Schumer Hits the Fan, that’s going to be your safest place to be. There, the population loss will be minimal.
But otherwise, in a grid down collapse that goes on for more than a year, we literally could see a 90% population loss in the big cities, and a 50% population loss in the suburbs and as much as a 40% loss in non-viable rural areas - I’m talking desert regions or other areas where there’s not a lot of agriculture that goes on.
Consider that it’s not just James Rawles - survivalist - that is recommending getting out of big cities. But economists like Dr. Marc Faber, who recently suggested the same strategy and said that you should Protect Your Property with High Voltage Fences, Barbed Wire, Booby Traps, Military Weapons and Dobermans. Billionaire John Malone has a bug-out location on the Canadian border, and a prominent hedge fund manager recently said he has a place in Idaho that you could hole up in if something went wrong.
Thus, if you often times feel like being a prepper means you’re disconnected from reality or that your friends think your crazy, just consider that Norway has built a massive Doomsday Seed Vault600 feet above sea level and the US government is stockpiling weapons, food and equipment in underground bunkers around the country. Why would government organizations be stockpiling these things and preparing back-up plans if there was no possibility of the shit hitting the fan?
Shouldn’t you be doing something similar? (Because let’s be clear - those stockpiles the government has are not going to be for you or your family)

Global Food Shortage Fears As Russia Extends Wheat Ban

From the Telegraph


Vladimir Putin has announced Russia will not lift a ban on grain exports before next year’s harvest, extending the embargo for another year, sparking fears over a global food shortage.
 
The Russian prime minister said that it was “necessary to note that we will only be able to consider lifting the grain export ban after next year’s harvest … and we have clarity on the balances”. His announcement came after deadly protests in Mozambique and the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation calling an emergency meeting to discuss the shortages.
 
The 
export ban is aimed at keeping the Russian domestic market well supplied with grain after Russia, which the world’s third largest wheat exporter last year when it sold 21.4 million tonnes of grain, after the country suffered a record drought which destroyed a quarter of its harvest. Forest and brush fires flared up again on Thursday, killing two people and burning down more than 160 houses and buildings. Mr Putin is keen to avoid any signs of social unrest ahead of elections due in 2012.

The export ban from such a key global exporter sent wheat prices to 231.5 euros a tonne, just short of last month’s two-year high of 236 euros, sparking worries of a crisis in global food supplies. A rise in the price of state-controlled food, water and electricity prices have sparked protests in Mozambique 
where seven people have been killed and hundreds left injured after clashes with police. The price of a loaf of bread is due to rise by 25 per cent on September 6.

The Rome-based FAO said that their emergency meeting was called due to “an enormous number” of inquiries over concerns “about a possible repeat of the 2007-08 food crisis” Abdolreza Abbassian, of the FAO, said: “This is quite serious. Two years in a row without Russian exports creates quite a disturbance”.

The rising prices around the world have raised concerns about a return to the political instability in 2008, when Haiti, Kenya and Somalia were among those that saw rioting over the cost of living.

120 Days to Go Until the Largest Tax Hikes in History

ATR 


In just 120 days, the largest tax hikes in the history of America will take effect.  They will hit families and small businesses in three great waves on January 1, 2011: 
First Wave: Expiration of 2001 and 2003 Tax Relief
In 2001 and 2003, the GOP Congress enacted several tax cuts for investors, small business owners, and families.  These will all expire on January 1, 2011:
 
Personal income tax rates will rise The top income tax rate will rise from 35 to 39.6 percent (this is also the rate at which two-thirds of small business profits are taxed).  The lowest rate will rise from 10 to 15 percent.  All the rates in between will also rise.  Itemized deductions and personal exemptions will again phase out, which has the same mathematical effect as higher marginal tax rates.  The full list of marginal rate hikes is below:

- The 10% bracket rises to an expanded 15%
- The 25% bracket rises to 28%
- The 28% bracket rises to 31%
- The 33% bracket rises to 36%
- The 35% bracket rises to 39.6% 
Higher taxes on marriage and family.  The “marriage penalty” (narrower tax brackets for married couples) will return from the first dollar of income.  The child tax credit will be cut in half from $1000 to $500 per child.  The standard deduction will no longer be doubled for married couples relative to the single level.  The dependent care tax credit will be cut. 
The return of the Death Tax.  This year, there is no death tax.  For those dying on or after January 1 2011, there is a 55 percent top death tax rate on estates over $1 million.  A person leaving behind two homes and a retirement account could easily pass along a death tax bill to their loved ones. 
Higher tax rates on savers and investors.  The top capital gains tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 20 percent in 2011.  The top dividends tax rate will rise from 15 percent this year to 39.6 percent in 2011.  These rates will rise another 3.8 percent in 2013. 
Second Wave: Obamacare
There are over 
twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare.  Several will first go into effect on January 1, 2011.  They include: 
The Tanning Tax.  This went into effect on July 1st of this year.  It imposes a new, 10% excise tax on getting a tan at a tanning salon.  There is no exemption for tanners making less than $250,000 per year.
The “Medicine Cabinet Tax” Thanks to Obamacare, Americans will no longer be able to use health savings account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement (HRA) pre-tax dollars to purchase non-prescription, over-the-counter medicines (except insulin). 
The HSA Withdrawal Tax Hike.  This provision of Obamacare increases the additional tax on non-medical early withdrawals from an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to IRAs and other tax-advantaged accounts, which remain at 10 percent. 
Brand Name Drug Tax.  Starting next year, there will be a multi-billion dollar tax assessment imposed on name-brand drug manufacturers.  This tax, like all excise taxes, will raise the price of medicine, hurting everyone. 
Economic Substance Doctrine.  The IRS is now empowered to disallow perfectly-legal tax deductions and maneuvers merely because it judges that the deduction or action lacks “economic substance.”  This is obviously an arbitrary empowerment of IRS agents. 
Employer Reporting of Health Insurance Costs on a W-2.  This will start for W-2s in the 2011 tax year.  While not a tax increase in itself, it makes it very easy for Congress to tax employer-provided healthcare benefits later. 
Third Wave: The Alternative Minimum Tax and Employer Tax Hikes
When Americans prepare to file their tax returns in January of 2011, they’ll be in for a nasty surprise—the AMT won’t be held harmless, and many tax relief provisions will have expired.  The major items include:
 
The AMT will ensnare over 28 million families, up from 4 million last year.  According to the left-leaning Tax Policy Center, Congress’ failure to index the AMT will lead to an explosion of AMT taxpaying families—rising from 4 million last year to 28.5 million.  These families will have to calculate their tax burdens twice, and pay taxes at the higher level.  The AMT was created in 1969 to ensnare a handful of taxpayers. 
Small business expensing will be slashed and 50% expensing will disappear.  Small businesses can normally expense (rather than slowly-deduct, or “depreciate”) equipment purchases up to $250,000.  This will be cut all the way down to $25,000.  Larger businesses can expense half of their purchases of equipment.  In January of 2011, all of it will have to be “depreciated.” 
Taxes will be raised on all types of businesses.  There are literally scores of tax hikes on business that will take place.  The biggest is the loss of the “research and experimentation tax credit,” but there are many, many others.  Combining high marginal tax rates with the loss of this tax relief will cost jobs.
Tax Benefits for Education and Teaching Reduced.  The deduction for tuition and fees will not be available.  Tax credits for education will be limited.  Teachers will no longer be able to deduct classroom expenses.  Coverdell Education Savings Accounts will be cut.  Employer-provided educational assistance is curtailed.  The student loan interest deduction will be disallowed for hundreds of thousands of families. 
Charitable Contributions from IRAs no longer allowed. Until this year, a retired person with an IRA could contribute up to $100,000 per year directly to a charity from their IRA.  This contribution also counts toward an annual “required minimum distribution.”  This ability will no longer be there.

Analysis: the Zionist lobbies in Britain

PressTV 03 Sep 2010 


The investigative journalist Janine Robert rightfully believes that the Israeli lobby in Britain has been more successful than its counterparts in the United States. 

She argues that in the US, the voting patterns of most of the 14 Jewish Senators in the Senate and 30 Jewish Congressmen and Congresswomen in the House of Representatives appear to be Pro-Israeli, while in the UK, where we have a Jewish community 20 times smaller, there appears to be 18 Pro-Israeli MPs in the House of Commons and 41 Pro-Israeli Lords in the House of Lords. This is the highest Pro-Israeli representation in the West. 

She also believes that this achievement is due in part to Tony Blair's patronage. One of Blair's first acts on becoming an MP in 1983 was to join Labour Friends of Israel. But the major change only occurred after he became Prime Minister. 

But what exactly is a Pro-Israeli lobby group? 

The term Israel lobby in the United Kingdom (also known as the Zionist lobby) is a term used to describe the coalition of groups and individuals who attempt to influence British foreign policy to support Israel and its strategies. 

Many decisions made in both Houses of Parliament are made as a direct result of lobbying at the hands of parliamentary colleagues, constituents or even outside pressure groups, including "private companies known as lobbyists" employed by organisations. 

These establishments include non-ethnic political groups in addition to grassroots ethnic organisations whether Christian, secular or Jewish-Britons, all of which have seen increasing growth and influence in recent years. 

Without a doubt the pro-Israeli lobby in Britain is increasingly spreading its influence within the politicians, media and even celebrities . 


Labour Friends of Israel (LFI) 

LFI is a UK Parliament-based lobby group promoting support within the British Labour Party for a strong bilateral relationship between Britain and Israel. It also seeks to strengthen ties between the British and the Israeli Labour party. 

The lobby was founded in October 1957 at a public rally at the Labour Party Conference; it has since developed into one of the largest special interest groups in the Labour Party, drawing wide support from Members of Parliament and Government Ministers. 

According to their manifesto, Labour Friends of Israel supports a two-state solution with Israel recognised and secure within its borders and the establishment of a viable Palestinian state. They have been described as "less unquestioning in its support of the Israeli government than the other parties' Zionist lobbies". Between 2001 and 2009 they sponsored more than 60 MPs to visit occupied Palestine. 

They have strongly and powerfully lobbied for the UK and EU to cut off financial aid to the Gaza Strip as long as the elected Hamas government is in power. Many of those who are aware of this blame LFI as they share responsibility with Israel for the current atrocious and miserable living conditions in the Gaza Strip. 

So who are the prominent figures of the group? One of the most influential figures involved is no other than the former PM Tony Blair, shortly after, Gordon Brown followed in his footsteps. The group's chair is Andrew Gwynne, while other members include the former Home Secretaries David Blunkett and John Reid, former Minister of Europe Chris Bryant, former Secretary of State for Trade and Industry Stephen Byers and other high ranking labour politicians. 


Conservative friends of Israel (CFI) 

According to the lobby's website, it is one of fastest growing lobbies in The United Kingdom currently chaired by Stuart Polak, who in 2009, was named the 61st most-influential right-winger in the United Kingdom. Moreover, reliable statistics show that around 80% of Conservative MPs are members of the CFI. 

The group was founded by Conservative MP Michael Fidler and its members include the current British Prime Minister David Cameron, who expressed his pride at being a member of CFI and his admiration for the lobby's key role within the Conservative party. 

Other figures include Defence Secretary Liam Fox, who describes Israel's enemies as Britain's enemies tying the Zionist atrocities to British national interests, Foreign Secretary William Hague, who joined CFI at the age of just 15, the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, the Home Secretary Theresa May and Secretary of State for Justice Kennett Clarke. 

The existence of so many cabinet ministers has raised concern among political activists and observers who are worried about the influence of a foreign government lobby in the heart of the British political establishment. 

Perhaps such worry is in place given the CFI sponsors 6 delegations to Israel each year and maintains constant contact with the Israeli embassy in London. 

Liberal Friends of Israel 

The Liberal Democrats have in place a parliamentary 'Friends of Israel Group'. In fact it was the liberal democrats who first gave life to primary 'Friends of Israel' group to be born in the British Parliament operating room. The group's website seems stridently Pro-Israel, much more than the websites of the Labour or Conservative groups respectively. 

Despite the party's left approach to political issues this lobby has a quite hawkish stance over the Zionist regime . The lobby states its prime objective is "to influence the Party's Middle East policy so it places a high priority on Israel's right to security". 

It also attempts to strip statements such as 'Israel "occupies" the West Bank' and 'the Jews created the refugee problem by expelling the Palestinians' reducing them to nothing other than "Myths" 

There seems to be other pro-Israeli lobbies within the United Kingdom influencing our ancient democratic political system and lobbying our politicians. 

These are lobbying groups such as British Christian Friends of Israel, Northern Ireland Friends of Israel, Scottish Friends of Israel and many more. In its long and distinguished history, Great Britain has never been under the influence of a foreign government lobby group as it currently is. These groups have formed marital relationships with policy makers while simultaneously attempting to stifle criticism of Israel in the press and media regardless of whether or not such criticism is based on our national interests as a sovereign nation. 

Whether we like it or not, Israel is a liability for Britain and is not the strategic asset that the Pro-Israeli lobby has long claimed it was. 

For example, Israel's atrocities in the Middle East and Africa are doing serious damage to UK's interests in the region. At the height of the matter, British political figures have attempted to exempt Israeli officials from the British Law on their visits to the UK. Against the needs of British Citizens, British politicians are for supporting the Israeli regime and appear ready to change the national laws for the sake of those charged with the crimes against humanity.

JEWISH SCOTLAND



The book 'When Scotland Was Jewish' argues that much of Scotland's history and culture from 1100 forward is Jewish because much of the population, including several national heroes, villains, rulers, nobles, traders, merchants, bishops, guild members, burgesses, and ministers, were Jews from France and Spain.
In March 1994, a top social function, the annual dinner of the Institute of Petroleum, took place in Glasgow.(Herald Scotland.)
Lord Goold, a Jew who was once boss of the Scottish Conservative Party, was among ten lords attending the gathering.
Giving the toast to the institute was Joseph Alpher, head of strategic studies in Tel Aviv University, and a former employee of Mossad.

Mossad has some influence in Scotland.

According to Gordon Thomas’s 1999 edition of Gideon’s Spies, Mossad played a key role in the 
G8 Summit in Scotland.
Christopher Lockwood, 'a Scot born in Glasgow', is suspected of having been part of the Mossad hit squad who murdered the Hamas leader, Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a Dubai hotel room. (Glasgow man hunted by Interpol in Mossad murder probe.)
Jim Murphy, former Secretary of State for Scotland, is a key member of Labour Friends of Israel and he has 'ingratiated himself' with the large Jewish community in his constituency in Glasgow.Another member of Labour Friends of Israel is former Labour government minister Denis MacShane, who sounds Scottish, but whose Jewish father was actually Jan Matyjaszek.

Reportedly it was Mossad which arranged for the CIA to fly heroin out of Lebanon on PanAm flights. 

And this led to PanAm 103 coming down over Lockerbie in Scotland. (BBC News WORLD Lockerbie: Conspiracy theories)Gordon Thomas quotes a Mossad source as saying, "Within hours after the (Pan Am 103) crash Mossad’s LAP (psychological warfare or disinformation) staff were working their media contacts, urging them to blame and publicize that ‘Libya-did-it.’" (Taking Another Look at the Destruction of Pan Am 103 -Voltaire])
In 2007, a Scot called Mohammed Atif Siddique was found guilty of 'looking for answers on the internet'.
Part of the evidence against Atif was that he downloaded material from an Israeli website run by DR Reuven Paz, 'formerly of Mossad'. (Cached)

Who is Stefan King?
And what link might he have had to the formerly disappeared gay Glasgow politician Steven Purcell?
Stefan King is an owner of gay pubs and clubs in Glasgow.
He has a Jewish mother.
He is worth at least £30 million. (The man who would be King - The Scotsman)
King set up Club X, a gay venue, on Glasgow's Royal Exchange Square.
He then opened Delmonicas, a gay bar on the edge of Glasgow's Merchant City.
Glasgow's Merchant City was "an area King would make his own, creating a stylish new gay quarter in the heart of town."
When King added Cafe Latte and the Polo lounge to his empire, he "had the gay market sewn up."
In 2005, Steven Purcell, the Leader of Glasgow City Council, announced that Glasgow's former General Post Office building on George Square, owned by Stefan King's G1 group, had been sold to developers. (GPO Building Sold)
Stefan King had originally bought the building for £5 million in 1999. (King profits from sale of GPO.)
He was given "at least £550,000 in refurbishment and training grants for it in 2000."
He made "a large amount of money from selling advertising on it."
He sold it for £12 million.
Steven Purcell said: "I used my influence as Leader to help facilitate negotiations...
"I'm delighted that Stefan King agreed..."

Stefan King of G1 Group, said: "When Councillor Purcell approached us regarding interest shown in the building, it was at a time when we still considered No 1 to be a long term property hold. However he encouraged us to meet with the interested parties..."

Blair and Berezovsky (mosnews.com/2006/03/22/zhirinblair.l). Reportedly, Sergey Serykh knew who killed Alexander Litvinenko, whose name has been linked to the Russian-Israeli mafia.

The dead Alexander Litvinenko has been linked to the dead 
Sergey Serykh, whose body was found at the foot of a tower block in Glasgow, on 7 March 2010.
Ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko may have had links to the Russian-Israeli Mafia and to the smuggling of radioactive materials. (
New wrinkle in Litvinenko's death )

Litvinenko and exiled Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky may have been working for the British security services. (
Litvinenko suspect: MI5 'tried to recruit me')

"The role of Boris Berezovsky in the Beslan massacre has never been made clear - but there is a growing belief that Litvinenko's silence was sought by people other than Putin..." (
Matrioshka - The Russian enigma._)
Berezovsky reportedly poured millions into the Orange Revolution in the Ukraine. 
(scotsman.2374152005)

Russian politician Mr Zhirinovsky has said "he was convinced that Blair was personally interested in keeping Berezovsky on British soil, claiming that 
the Blairs were receiving financial support from 'criminal elements'.

"Cherie Blair, Zhirinovsky continued, works in a law firm 'which is servicing our Russian thugs, Berezovsky included.' Those are dozens of 'extremists' including Berezovsky and Akhmed Zakayev, as well as 'nearly all of the Yukos top executives', he added."

Sergey Serykh was found dead at the foot of a tower block in Glasgow.
According to Vitali Alexandrovich, Sergey Serykh's landlord in London, Sergey "said that since he defected from the Ukrainian secret services they were trying to assassinate him.
"
He said he knew who had killed Alexander Litvinenko (the Russian dissident poisoned in London in 2006)." (Daughter of asylum-seeker.)
Sergey's step-daughter Karina lives in Moscow.

Asked about Sergey's spy plot claims, she said: 'I don't want to talk about this.

"Some of it is true."
She did not deny any of Sergey's claims. (Daughter of asylum-seeker.)

Sergey had said that Russia's security services would also try to kill him and his family if they returned to his native Ukraine.

The Mail on Sunday (
Daughter of asylum-seeker.) has discovered that when Sergey arrived in Britain in 2007 he was well off.

He was born in Zaporozhe in the Ukraine.

Apparently, he was in the Russian army from at least 1994 to 1996.

He and his family moved to Canada in 2000.

They were described as being vegetarian and Hindu. They ran a health business.

In 2005, the family was given 'protected person' status. This means it was believed that, if they returned 'to their country of nationality or former habitual residence they would be subject to the possibility of torture, risk of life, or risk of cruel and unusual treatment or punishment'.

The family was given permanent residency in Canada.

Then suddenly they fled from Canada to contionental Europe and eventually to London and then Glasgow. He claimed he had uncovered a government plot, involving Stephen Harper, to assassinate the Queen.

For 18 months Sergey and family rented a comfortable apartment in Wembley Park in London.

They "never struggled to meet the £1,250 monthly rent."
Vitali Alexandrovich, Serykh's landlord said: "He seemed to have plenty of money...

"He said the Russian secret service were also after him, which is why he had fled to Canada in the first place."

Sergey Serykh claimed that a deal existed between Stephen Harper, the Canadian prime minister, and former Russian president Vladimir Putin that meant he would be killed by Canadian security agents if he returned there.

According to Wayne Madsen ("james bond" plot to down putin behind litvinenko):
"The London offices of ISC Global, now known as RISC Management, were visited in November 2006 by Litvinenko and Russian businessmen Andrei Lugovoi and Dmitry Kovtun and traces of polonium-210 were discovered there.
"According to the Sunday Times of London, Russian police are also investigating whether the poisoning of Litvinenko and the attempted poisoning of Globuvich are connected to the radiation poisoning death two years ago of Roman Tsepov, a former bodyguard of Putin when he was deputy Mayor of St. Petersburg.
"Tsepov was involved in the Russian government's tracking of Yukos assets. Also of interest are connections to the June 2004 assassination of Forbes Russian edition editor-in-chief Paul Klebnikov, a U.S. citizen who wrote a damaging expose of Berezovsky.
"Three Chechen contract killers were charged in Klebnikov's murder. The same Russian-Israeli mob ring is also being looked at in the investigation of the assassination of Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya of Novaya Gazeta as a way to embarrass Putin...
"In March 2004, British attorney Stephen Curtis, the chairman of ISC Global, died, along with his pilot, in a helicopter crash near Bournemouth Airport. The two were on their way to Dublin. The Times reported a James Bond-like secret project by ISC Global, jailed Yukos tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky, and Nevzlin to launch an international smear campaign to discredit Putin and other members of the Russian government...
"Britain's government has been co-opted by the Russian-Israeli mobsters, much in the same way that their American colleagues, acting through neo-con proxies, ... captured control of the Bush administration."
