False-flag Warnings in Ukraine and Syria

 June 11, 2018

False-flag Warning in Ukraine

The following is a warning of a false-flag event being planned in the Ukraine conflict at the time the World Cup begins in Russia.  Given the current anti-Russian attitude prevailing in the Western capitals and media this warning deserves to be posted.  A leaked plan for a false-flag operation can prevent an atrocity.  Here is the text from the posting from

Pro-Kiev forces are preparing a false flag attack against a delegation of the EU Political and Security Committee in Eastern Ukraine, the State Security Ministry of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said in a statement on June 11 citing obtained intelligence data.

The EU delegation is set to visit areas near the contact line between Ukrainian and DPR forces in the region of Donbass in the period from June 13 to June 15.

According to the statement, Ukrainian forces are planning to shoot down a helicopter with the delegation using an Igla man-portable infrared homing surface-to-air missile. This missile already was taken from a weapon depot of the 2nd Assault Battalion of the 95th Air Assault Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. This battalion is deployed in the settlement of Verhnetoreckoe.

Thus, the Ukrainian side is going to accuse forces of the DPR and the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) of carrying out an attack of the helicopter with the EU delegation.


Russia Warns of Chemical Provocation in Syria

The US-backed Free Syrian Army and the US Special Operations Forces are preparing a “chemical weapons” provocation in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor, Major General Igor Konashenkov said on June 11.

According to Konashenkov, the US-led forces are going to stage a “chemical attack” in the village of Haql al-Jafara to accuse the Syrian government of conducting it. Balloons with chlorine gas are allegedly already delivered to the area.

“According to the information confirmed through three independent channels in Syria, the command of the so-called ‘Free Syrian Army’ aided by the forces of the US special ops units are preparing a serious provocation involving chemical warfare agents in the Deir ez-Zor province,” Konashenkov said.

“After being published in western media a staged video is set to initiate a missile strike on Syria’s state facilities by the US-led coalition and justify an offensive operation by militants against Syrian governmental forces on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River,” he added.

Konashenkov added the Russian Defense Ministry warns that the use of such provocations for destabilization of the situation in Syria is unacceptable.


The Peculiar Similarities between 9-11 and the Assassination of RFK

June 5, 2018

Sen. Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel shortly before he was ushered into the pantry where he was shot.

The Zionist-controlled media pretends that the truth about the murder of Robert F. Kennedy is "out of our reach."  Why would they maintain this absurd position?  

"The truth appears to be out of our reach."
- Tony Dokoupil, "Who Killed RFK?" CBS News, May 28, 2018

“In the three years since 9-11, we've begun to understand that it's possible to know what happened without knowing what happened.”
- "The Public Knowledge of 9-11", New York Times, September 11, 2004

The murder of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy (RFK), the leading presidential candidate when he was shot in Los Angeles on June 5, 1968, profoundly changed American history. The RFK murder case, in which a Palestinian immigrant was blamed, has several similarities with the assassination of the senator's brother, President John F. Kennedy in 1963, and the terrorist attacks of 9-11 three decades later. If we examine the peculiar characteristics these crimes have in common, what will it reveal about the culprits? If we find a high degree of commonality linking these political atrocities is it possible to deduce something about the nature of the criminal network behind them? Are we dealing with different criminal networks, or one? Is it domestic or foreign?

These three crimes are similar in several ways. On the general level each crime was in effect a coup that radically changed American political history through violence. The murder of John F. Kennedy abruptly ended a progressive and popular presidency; the assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy prevented JFK's reform-minded crime-fighting brother from becoming president; and the terror attacks of 9-11 ushered in a radical policy coup and a new era focused on waging the fraudulent War on Terror, an Israeli stratagem to rule the Middle East.

Another shared characteristic is that these crimes were all false-flag deceptions in which a fall guy was scapegoated to conceal a more elaborate crime. Lee Harvey Oswald, Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, and Osama bin Laden are the "lone gunmen" blamed for the crimes in the official narratives. In spite of ample evidence clearly disproving the official stories, to this day the mainstream media promotes the false narratives.

In all three cases official investigations were set up to support the false narrative. The agencies involved in the investigations participated in the confiscation and destruction of evidence that challenged their story. Likewise, in each case the controlled media failed to conduct its own investigation and ignored irrefutable evidence that disproves the official story. The media cover-ups have gone on for decades in spite of well-documented evidence, such as the autopsy report of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy which clearly proves he was killed by a second shooter behind him.  How is it that decades go by without the truth coming out in the media; without the evidence being discussed? Who has the power to exercise such control over the media?

The autopsy of Robert Kennedy clearly shows that the fatal shot was fired from directly behind the senator, while Sirhan Sirhan was several feet in front of him.

This means the false narratives are being protected to allow the secret cabal behind these crimes to avoid being exposed and prosecuted. This has been going on for more than fifty years, which means the criminal terrorist network responsible for all three atrocities remains in power and is able to carry out similar crimes whenever it wants – and it does. The cabal behind the murders of the Kennedys and 9-11 is still in power at the highest levels of our government and media. This is why it is extremely important that the criminal network responsible for these heinous crimes be identified. 


The fact that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has spoken out and is calling for an investigation into the assassination of his father fifty years ago is commendable. His doubts about who really murdered his father were published in a Washington Post article on May 26, entitled "Who killed Bobby Kennedy? His son RFK Jr. doesn’t believe it was Sirhan Sirhan."

“There were too many bullets,” Kennedy Jr. said. “You can’t fire 13 shots out of an eight-shot gun.” Furthermore, as the article reported, "Kennedy was shot at point-blank range from behind, including a fatal shot behind his ear. But Sirhan, a 24-year-old Palestinian immigrant, was standing in front of him. Was there a second gunman? The debate rages to this day."

It should be clear that we are not really talking about a raging debate, but rather a media and government cover-up of well-documented facts.  Los Angeles Coroner Thomas Noguchi conducted the official autopsy on the body of Robert Kennedy on the morning of June 6, 1968, and found that the shot that killed RFK “had entered through the mastoid bone, an inch behind the right ear and had traveled upward to sever the branches of the superior cerebral artery.”

Noguchi wrote about the murder in a book entitled Coroner (1983), in which he said, "Until more is precisely known...the existence of a second gunman remains a possibility. Thus, I have never said that Sirhan Sirhan killed Robert Kennedy."

Paul Schrade, a member of the Kennedy entourage, has been trying since 1974 to persuade authorities to reinvestigate the case and identify the second gunman.  Robert Kennedy, Jr. has joined forces with Schrade in calling for a new investigation. "The fact that Robert Kennedy Jr. would say, 'Sirhan did not kill my father,'" Schrade told the Boston Globe, "I think that's very effective."

“Yes, he did shoot me. Yes, he shot four other people and aimed at Kennedy,” Schrade said about Sirhan. “The important thing is he did not shoot Robert Kennedy. Why didn’t they go after the second gunman? They knew about him right away. They didn’t want to know who it was. They wanted a quickie.”

In a statement to the author of “Who Killed Bobby? The Unsolved Murder of Robert F. Kennedy,” before Sirhan's parole hearing in 2016, Schrade said:

The LAPD and LA DA knew two hours after the fatal shooting of Robert Kennedy that he was shot by a second gunman and they had conclusive evidence that Sirhan Bishara Sirhan could not and did not do it. The official record shows that [the prosecution at Sirhan’s trial] never had one witness – and had no physical nor ballistic evidence – to prove Sirhan shot Robert Kennedy.

Evidence locked up for 20 years shows that the LAPD destroyed physical evidence and hid ballistic evidence exonerating Sirhan, and covered up conclusive evidence that a second gunman fatally wounded Robert Kennedy.

In calling for a new investigation into the murder of his father, Robert Kennedy, Jr. is like the relatives of the 9-11 victims who want a proper forensic investigation of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The fact that none of these cases were properly investigated from the beginning is the first shared characteristic; in all three cases there was flagrant tampering and outright destruction of evidence. Who is being protected by the failure to investigate the evidence from these crimes? Who has the power to control and corrupt such investigations? 

Another peculiar similarity is that the Ambassador Hotel, where RFK was killed, and the World Trade Center were both owned by Zionist Jews who had very high-level connections to the state of Israel. In both cases the ownership of the building also appears to have played a key role in the crime. In the case of World Trade Center, having control of the property allowed the terrorists to prepare the buildings for the explosive demolitions that occurred on 9-11. Larry Silverstein, former national director of the United Jewish Appeal (UJA), a major funding operation for Israel, obtained control of the Twin Towers about five weeks before 9-11. For years prior to 9-11, Silverstein had regular weekly phone calls with Israel's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the godfather of the War on Terror, which began as a result of the false-flag terror attacks. What were Netanyahu and Silverstein talking about every Sunday afternoon?

The Ambassador Hotel was owned by J. Myer Schine who was connected to the Jewish Mob and the Henry Crown family.

The Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles was owned by Junius Myer Schine, father-in-law of Lester Crown, son of Henry Crown (born Krinsky), the largest shareholder of General Dynamics, a leading defense contractor. Henry Crown was a high-level Zionist agent who sent an aircraft manufacturing plant to Israel in the early 1950s in violation of U.S. law.  The factory he sent to Israel illegally became the original Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) plant.  The Crown family is also connected to both Kennedy assassinations and the 9-11 cover-up. (See: "JFK and 9-11: Henry Crown and the Cover-Ups of Our Time")

Under Myer Schine's ownership the Ambassador Hotel hosted the gambling operations of Mickey Cohen, the West Coast lieutenant of Jewish mob boss Meyer Lansky. U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy had been involved in the prosecution of Cohen in which he was convicted for tax evasion and sent to Alcatraz in 1961. Who arranged for Kennedy to use the Ambassador Hotel?

The Ambassador Hotel had been Mickey Cohen's base of operations in the late 1940's when he became friends with the Jewish terrorist leader Menachem Begin who was hiding out in Los Angeles after a terrorist bombing in Palestine.

The Jewish gangster Mickey Cohen is not only connected to the Ambassador Hotel and the Santa Anita Racetrack, where Sirhan worked and gambled on the horses. Most notably, Cohen is also closely connected to Menachem Begin, former head of the terrorist gang, the Irgun, who was in position to take advantage of his relationship with Cohen to infiltrate his criminal network, which would include being able to set up Sirhan the Palestinian to be the Manchurian Candidate fall guy in the assassination of Bobby Kennedy.  How neat.

The fact that the hotel was owned by Myer Schine, whose family was closely connected to Israeli intelligence, could explain how Sirhan, an armed stranger, was allowed to loiter in the hotel pantry for thirty minutes while Bobby Kennedy was speaking to a crowd in the adjacent room. Why would Sirhan linger in the pantry if his goal was simply to kill Kennedy? Why wouldn't he pass through the corridor and approach the candidate on the podium from behind? Why wait in the pantry when there was no plan for Kennedy to come that way? Who was choreographing the movements of Sirhan – and Kennedy?

Who was the hidden hand guiding Robert Kennedy into the pantry where Sirhan was waiting?

As the author of "I Was There When Robert F. Kennedy Died" wrote:

Later, after events began to wind down, I remembered the strange incident where Frank Mankiewicz was insistent that Bobby leave through the kitchen, rather than the ballroom. I discreetly asked others who had campaigned with him for a long time if it made any sense that Bobby would leave through the kitchen rather than through his crowd of supporters and they all said RFK preferred to walk through a crowd after a speech. Neither at the time—nor for many years afterward—did I mention the incident that I witnessed, nor did I see any published accounts anywhere explaining why Bobby went through the kitchen.

Frank Mankiewicz, who had previously served as a West Coast director for the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, worked with the Kennedy campaign. Why did Mankiewicz insist that Kennedy go through the pantry, where Sirhan was waiting with a loaded gun?  What kind of hotel security would allow an armed stranger to loiter in the kitchen for a half-hour with a presidential candidate speaking in the next room?

The fact that the Ambassador Hotel and the World Trade Center were owned and controlled by individuals with high-level connections to Israel is very significant. This makes it possible to consider that Israeli agents could have taken advantage of these connections to carry out both false-flag operations. This would explain the use of an apparently mind-controlled Palestinian as the fall guy and the universal reluctance of the mainstream media to look beyond the official story. This would also explain the position of Zionist-controlled media outlets such as CBS News (controlled by Leslie Moonves, the great-nephew of David Ben Gurion, Israel's founding father) and the New York Times that we will never know what happened. They want us to think that the truth is "out of our reach" because if the truth were known it would mean the end of the Zionist project.

Why is Trump Putting the Screws to Iran?

May 22, 2018

The new U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu

President Donald Trump with Benjamin Netanyahu 

If you ask most of the governments and most of the leaders in the Middle East what is the principle barrier to peace, what is the greatest threat to security, they would say three things: Iran, Iran and Iran.
- Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, May 21, 2018

We are witnessing today a new phenomenon: the capricious assertiveness of the American administration. Looking at the latest decisions of President Trump some could even think, ‘With friends like that, who needs enemies?’
- Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, May 16, 2018

One week after President Donald Trump withdrew from the multi-lateral nuclear deal with Iran, the President of the European Council Donald Tusk described the U.S. administration as "capricious".

Capricious is defined as "changing according to no discernible rules; unpredictable." However, when it comes to how the Trump administration deals with Iran there is nothing unpredictable about it.  In dealing with Iran, Donald Trump is simply acting according to the well-known dictates and demands coming from Israel's right-wing leader, Benjamin Netanyahu.


Ten years ago, General Wesley Clark revealed the Zionist Neo-Con plan to "take out" Iran and six other Middle Eastern nations that was contained in a Pentagon memo that circulated at the highest level of the Defense Department shortly after 9/11:  "This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran," Clark said.

Now, having taken on the first six nations, it seems that Trump has decided to ignore the pleas of the Europeans and to put the screws to Iran to satisfy Netanyahu. The European Union, however, is one of Iran's largest trading partners and is unwilling to trash the nuclear deal that allows European companies to trade with the large and wealthy nation.

On May 21, Trump's new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo threatened Iran with the "strongest sanctions in history" if it did not comply with 12 demands he listed in a speech given at the Heritage Foundation, "After the Deal:  The New Iran Strategy."

Pompeo said the United States would only lift its sanctions on Iran if Tehran submitted to the new demands, which seems highly unlikely given the extreme nature of the demands.


"We will apply unprecedented financial pressure on the Iranian regime," Pompeo said.

"This sting of sanctions will be painful if the regime does not change its course from the unacceptable and unproductive path it has chosen to one that rejoins the league of nations. These will indeed end up being the strongest sanctions in history when we are complete. The regime has been fighting all over the Middle East for years. After our sanctions come in force, it will be battling to keep its economy alive. Iran will be forced to make a choice: either fight to keep its economy off life support at home or keep squandering precious wealth on fights abroad. It will not have the resources to do both," Pompeo said.

Donald Trump recently complained that the U.S. had wasted $7 trillion in 17 years of waging war in the Middle East and gotten nothing for it. Yesterday, his new Secretary of State focused his criticism on Iran for wasting its wealth. Pompeo said the U.S. will "advocate tirelessly for the Iranian people. The regime must improve how it treats its citizens. It must protect the human rights of every Iranian. It must cease wasting Iran’s wealth abroad."

On May 10, the Washington Free Beacon reported:  "The Trump administration is examining a new plan to help Iranians fighting the hardline regime in Iran following America's exit from the landmark nuclear deal and re-imposition of harsh economic sanctions that could topple a regime already beset by protests and a crashing economy."

A "three-page white paper being circulated among National Security Council officials in the White House," which the Free Beacon has a copy of, "offers a strategy by which the Trump administration can actively work to assist an already aggravated Iranian public topple the hardline ruling regime through a democratization strategy that focuses on driving a deeper wedge between the Iranian people and the ruling regime."

So the "New Iran Strategy" sounds a lot like the old Syria strategy, which the U.S. has applied with disastrous results since 2012. In 2012, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wrote an email entitled "New Iran and Syria 2.doc": 

The best way to help Israel deal with Iran's growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad… Bringing down Assad would not only be a massive boon to Israel's security, it would also ease Israel's understandable fear of losing its nuclear monopoly.

During previous periods of sanctions and embargoes against Iran it was, in fact, Israelis and their agents like Marc Rich who profited by secretly trading with Iran. After the Iranian Revolution in 1979, Marc Rich bought oil from Iran despite the American embargo. Due to his special relationship with Ayatollah Khomeini, Iran became Rich's most important supplier of crude oil for more than 15 years, selling Iranian oil to Israel through a secret pipeline.

There is clearly no U.S. or European interest in waging economic war against a nation of 80 million people with a new regime of extremely oppressive sanctions.  This policy is meant to foment civil strife in Iran with the intent of overthrowing the government.  Trump's "New Iran Strategy" is certainly not being implemented for the benefit of the Iranian people, but solely to advance Israel's strategic plan to dominate the Middle East.

Their Nakba is Our Nakba

May 15, 2018

Nakba 1948 - Palestinian at 
Jaramana Refugee Camp, Damascus, Syria
Today - Palestinians at Yarmouk Refugee Camp, Damascus, Syria
The Many Faces of Zionism - Our Common Enemy

Today, May 15, is Nakba Day - Nakba being Arabic for "catastrophe" or "disaster”. On Nakba Day Palestinians commemorate their displacement, dispossession, and dispersal by armed Zionist forces in 1948.

Using massacres and terrorism, Zionist militias ethnically cleansed hundreds of Palestinian villages and towns during the war (1947-1949), which erupted after the United Nations partitioned Palestine in November 1947 giving more than half of the country to Zionist invaders from Europe. Around 80 percent of the Palestinian population, an estimated 700,000 people, were expelled from their homes on land that became Israel.

The "ethnic cleansing" and dispossession of Palestinians was carried out by Zionist forces of Russian and Polish Jews that had invaded Palestine and conquered much of the country in 1948.

Zionism is also the hidden hand driving the current devastation of Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, and Libya, among other nations -- including our own. The false-flag terrorism of 9/11 and the War on Terror are two sides of an utterly fraudulent Zionist construct designed to impoverish the United States and facilitate the conquest of the Middle East and displacement of millions of people.

More than one million of these refugees have been settled in Germany, a nation that is itself an occupied nation. More than seven decades after the war in which it was conquered by Zionist-led forces, Germany has neither a peace treaty nor a constitution while its people remain quietly burdened under draconian laws and proclamations of the occupying power.

Grasping that Zionism, a racial doctrine of Jewish supremacism, is the common factor behind much of the chaos and chronic injustice that afflicts the world today is essential to understanding and solving the most serious political problems of our time.

In a world in which Zionism is allowed to prevail we are all Palestinians.

Israel was Not Attacked - Illegal Israeli Forces on Syrian Territory were Targeted

May 10, 2018

Israel was NOT attacked; Israeli Occupation Forces on Syrian Territory were Targeted

The Missile Attack on Israeli Forces in the Golan is Completely Legal

Israeli Attacks on Syria are neither Legal nor Moral
- They are Illegal Aggression against Syria

The United States considers the Golan Heights to be Syrian territory held under Israeli occupation subject to negotiation and Israeli withdrawal. The United States considers the application of Israeli law to the Golan Heights to be a violation of international law, both the Fourth Geneva Convention's prohibition on the acquisition of territory by force and United Nations Security Council Resolution 242. 

With misleading headlines like this: "White House condemns Iran rocket attacks against Israel," some clarification is needed about the missiles that were reportedly fired at Israeli military targets in the Golan Heights on May 10, 2018.   
Attacks against Israel?  What are they talking about?  The Golan Heights, with its oil and water resources, is occupied Syrian territory.  It is also a very important reason why Israel wants to overthrow the government of Syria. If the Syrian government were to be overthrown, and the country divided into ethnic enclaves like Yugoslavia, there would be no legal challenge to Israel's occupation and annexation of the Golan Heights. This is the essence of Israel's plan (Yinon Plan of 1982) - to break up Syria and get away with their illegal land-grab.

Israel was certainly NOT attacked last night! The missiles allegedly fired from Syria targeted and/or landed on Israeli military targets in the occupied Golan Heights, where Israel is an illegal occupying power - on Syrian territory. The alleged missiles never even left Syrian territory, except for one that apparently landed in Lebanon. Armed resistance to Israel's occupation of the Golan Heights is both legal and moral.
As Dr. Martin Cohen wrote in the Guardian in 2002:  "There is no right of self-defence for an occupying force. Clearly, actions taken by the Palestinian [or Syrian] people, in land internationally recognised as illegally occupied by Israel, are legitimate acts of resistance, subject only to the rules of war."

The White House has condemned Iran's "provocative rocket attacks from Syria against Israeli citizens" and expressed strong support for "Israel's right to act in self-defense."

But Israel has no "right" to be occupying the Golan Heights. The Syrian government, on the other hand, and forces allied with it, have both the legal and moral right to attack Israeli forces on occupied Syrian territory.

Israel took the Golan Heights from Syria in 1967 and annexed the occupied territory in 1981. The United States and the international community, however, have never recognized Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights. The United States considers the Golan Heights to be Syrian territory held under Israeli occupation subject to negotiation and Israeli withdrawal. The United States considers the application of Israeli law to the Golan Heights to be a violation of international law, both the Fourth Geneva Convention's prohibition on the acquisition of territory by force and United Nations Security Council Resolution 242.

My Only Question about the 9/11 Narrative: Is it True – or False?

May 3, 2018

False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.
- Socrates

A detainee in Guantanamo Bay called Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), who is supposedly "the mastermind" of the terror attacks of 9/11, is now after many years back in the news. There have been recent reports that he may have suffered brain damage during interrogation sessions at a CIA black-site in Poland, where the detainee was held after being arrested in Pakistan in March 2003. So, fifteen years after he was abused during interrogation, the military is only now trying to determine if his brain has been damaged?

The detainee said to be Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11

In an April 30, 2018, article entitled "Lawyers: Scan suggests alleged 9/11 plotter suffered head injury in CIA custody," Carol Rosenberg of the Miami Herald (McClatchy) writes from Guantanamo, Cuba, that brain scans conducted on the man said to be Khalid Sheik Mohammed, accused of orchestrating the 9/11 attacks, show damage consistent with abuse he might have suffered in CIA custody.

"You've heard endlessly about waterboarding," former Vice President Dick Cheney said at a speech in 2009 at the American Enterprise Institute. "It happened to three terrorists. One of them was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, who has also boasted about his beheading of Daniel Pearl."


In 2007, the detainee said to be KSM supposedly confessed to being the mastermind of 9/11:

I was the Operational Director for Sheikh Usama Bin Laden for the organizing, planning, follow-up, and execution of the 9/11 Operation… I was the Military Operational Commander for all foreign operations around the world…

I was Emir (i.e., commander) of Beit Al Shuhada (i.e., the Martyrs' House) in the state of Kandahar, Afghanistan, which housed the 9/11 hijackers. There I was responsible for their training and readiness for the execution of the 9/11 Operation. Also, I hereby admit and affirm without duress that I was a responsible participant, principal planner, trainer, financier (via the Military Council Treasury), executor, and/or a personal participant in the following;

I was responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center Operation.

I was responsible for the 9/11 Operation, from A to Z.
- Supposed confession of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, read by a Personal Representative in a closed-door hearing in Guantánamo Bay, March 10, 2007, "Verbatim Transcript of Combatant Status Review Tribunal Hearing for ISN 10024"

This is supposedly a confession read by a third person on behalf of a detainee who obviously does not speak English very well and who does not even identify himself in the process. He is simply called Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, although he is neither identified nor sworn in during the hearing. A further contradiction is that KSM was reported to have been killed in Pakistan in September 2002. The real KSM also graduated from college in North Carolina with an engineering degree, which suggests that he would have better English skills than the unidentified detainee said to be "the mastermind" of 9/11.

Photographs of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed


The evidence suggests that the person said to be Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is actually someone else, perhaps an Ahmed Qudus (also Qadus) who was arrested in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, in March 2003. Faced with so many contradictions in the reports about KSM, in March 2007 I called the engineering faculty of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical University where KSM earned his degree in mechanical engineering in the 1980s.

The detainee called KSM (left) and Ahmed Qadus (right) both in March 2003 when KSM was reported to have been arrested at the Qadus home in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. The Qadus family told the Guardian that only Ahmed was arrested and taken away from their home. Is the detainee called KSM really Qadus?

David E. Klett, a retired professor of thermodynamics, had the real KSM in several of his classes. Asked about the photos of the person said to be the terror mastermind KSM, Klett said, "I did not recognize that person. I never saw that face before."

There are many questions about this detainee called Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and how he has been handled. Is he really KSM? Is he really the mastermind of 9/11? If so, why has he not been put on trial after 15 years in U.S. custody? Why is he kept incommunicado in Cuba?


Above and beyond these questions, however, is one we need to ask about this detainee and his supposed role in 9/11: Is it true, or is it false? Either the detainee said to be KSM is in fact the mastermind of 9/11, or he is not. This needs to be determined and proven.

If it is true, why has he not been put on trial after 15 years? If he is indeed the mastermind of 9/11, why has he not been properly interrogated to find out how the terror attacks were planned and carried out? Why is he being held in a kind of legal limbo at a military base in Cuba? Don't we deserve to know more about the person who is supposedly behind the crimes of 9/11?

The person said to be Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, is like a linchpin in the whole sordid saga of 9/11. Either he is who they say he is, or he is not. Likewise, by extension, either the official 9/11 saga is true – or it is false.

This is much more than an academic exercise. This is nothing less than the most important historical and political question of our time. If the official narrative about 9/11 is true, why has the government failed to prove or prosecute their case after more than 16 years? Why has there been no criminal investigation? Why was crucial evidence from the World Trade Center destroyed starting on the first day?

If, on the other hand, the official story is false, it means we have been deceived from the very beginning and have been tricked into fighting numerous wars across the Middle East under the pretext of waging the Global War on Terror. According to President Trump, these wars have cost the U.S. some $7 trillion in 17 years. 


Someone at the FBI, or elsewhere in government, needed to make sure that al Qaeda members were left in place – either to perpetrate the attacks or to take the blame for them afterwards.
- Michael Ruppert, Crossing the Rubicon, 2004

Rather than getting a blue-ribbon investigation of 9/11, we were given a prepared narrative blaming a nebulous group called al Qaeda, supposedly headed by a wealthy Saudi named Osama bin Laden. Before the dust had even settled in New York City the blame was being assigned to bin Laden on BBC World and Sky television by Ehud Barak, the former prime minister of Israel. Barak, conveniently in London, blamed bin Laden and said it was time for the U.S. to begin an "operational war against terrorism." While the al Qaeda connection to 9/11 has never been proven, it has been the focus of the official narrative from the beginning.

How was this done? Over a period of years prior to 9/11 a whole host of terrorist bombings were blamed on al Qaeda. The detainee called KSM supposedly confessed to 29 of them, going back to the first bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993. The 19 alleged hijackers were like actors on a stage, positioned and prepared to take the blame for the 9/11 crimes. If you are willing to accept that Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda carried out 9/11, without seeing any evidence to prove the allegations, you can probably be misled with more unproven details connecting this suspect with this person or event. It then becomes a matter of missing the forest for the trees. This is the purpose of all the noise, discussion, and leaks about who knew what when about the 19 hijackers and their plot.

The alleged Arab hijackers were monitored by cells of Israeli "art student" spies.

If, however, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is not the real mastermind of 9/11 the question remains: who is behind the positioning and preparation of the narrative about the 19 alleged hijackers? Who was the hidden hand preparing the Arabs to take the blame for the crime? Was this the real reason the Israeli "art students" lived near the alleged hijackers?

Putting the blame on the targeted foe is the whole purpose of false-flag terrorism, but the deception only succeeds with an audience who is willing to accept an unproven allegation as true. The false narrative fails as soon as one looks for proof and finds there is none. This is exactly what we find with the official narrative of 9/11: volumes of allegations, but no solid evidence.  

So, we must ask: Is it true, or is it false?

Syria: Why are we there?

The War on Terror:  The Plot to Rule the Middle East helps the reader make sense of the War on Terror by explaining the covert strategy that is being implemented under the pretext of fighting terrorism. This most essential book is available for a $20 donation by PayPal to or by clicking on
The war in Syria is in the spotlight once again after yet another alleged chemical gas attack. The 7-year-old war seems to be at a turning point with President Trump saying on one hand that he wants to get U.S. troops out of the country "very soon" while threatening that a "big price" will be paid by the government of Syria, which stands accused of having used chemical weapons in Douma, a suburb of Damascus, during the night of April 7-8.

The Israeli government is pushing hard for the U.S. to attack the government of Syria and reportedly fired missiles at a Syrian airbase near Homs overnight.

Although there are hundreds of articles about the latest chemical atrocity and what Trump will or won't do as a response, there is no discussion in the media about why U.S. forces are involved in Syria in the first place. What is the U.S. strategy behind our military engagement in Syria? Why is this not discussed in the media?

The reason why U.S. strategy in Syria is not talked about is because the American people are not supposed to know what we are doing in Syria - or why. If the strategy were legal and justified it would be discussed, but it is neither legal nor just so it is not. We are simply told that we are fighting ISIS in Syria, which is supposedly authorized by the War on Terror authorization (AUMF, Sept. 14, 2001). But if we are really just fighting the ISIS terrorist group, why have we not joined forces with the government of Syria and the Russians to fight ISIS and been done with it a long time ago?

Now that ISIS is defeated, why are we still in Syria and threatening to wage war against the Assad government, which was elected in 2014? Why are we occupying the eastern third of Syria? Why do we have a base in Syria on the Jordanian border? None of this is legal or justifiable under international law, so why are we doing it?

None of this makes any sense unless we grasp that the real reason U.S. forces are in Syria is to support the Israeli strategy (i.e. Yinon Plan, 1982) to destroy the Syrian military and break the country into ethnic enclaves as was done to Yugoslavia in the 1990s and has been done to Iraq since 2003.

In the Western media the conflict is made ridiculously simple: we are told that Russia and Syria are bad actors, and because they are bad they do bad things. Therefore we are asked to believe without evidence that they are behind all the suffering and atrocities we hear about in Syria.

But Syria is fighting a war to defend the nation from gangs of foreign-funded and trained terrorists. Russia has been asked by the government of Syria to help in this effort to defend the nation in accordance with international law. Why are they portrayed as bad actors if they are fighting the good fight to defend Syria?

The U.S. on the other hand is working with those foreign-funded and trained terrorists to illegally overthrow the government of Syria and break the nation into pieces. There is nothing good about that. Why are we doing it?

It's very simple: As Secretary of State Clinton wrote in an email in 2012: The best way to "help Israel" is to use force to overthrow the Assad government in Damascus. President Obama authorized $1 billion per year to the CIA to assist in the effort to overthrow the Assad government in order to "help Israel."

So, we are really waging war in Syria and taking the world to the brink of war with Russia in order to help Israel? How utterly reckless can a nation be?

Making sense of the fraudulent War on Terror is the subject of my latest book, The War on Terror: The Plot to Rule the Middle East. It is a small and easily-read book that explains how we have been tricked into the War on Terror, which was launched in the aftermath of 9-11 and has become America's longest and most expensive war. Under the pretext of fighting terrorism we are waging illegal wars to advance an Israeli agenda to dominate the Middle East.

Emmanuel Macron: The Rothschild Agent Who Convinced Trump to Stay in Syria

April 16, 2018

Baron David de Rothschild with his employee, Emmanuel Macron and his wife. Macron only appeared on the French political scene last year and suddenly became president of France in a race against Marine LePen. Baron David de Rothschild is also the chairman of the Governing Board of the World Jewish Congress.

Emmanuel Macron, the highly-paid Rothschild investment banker who became president of France less than a year ago, told French media on Sunday that "we convinced" President Donald Trump to stay in Syria. 

Who is "we"?

Given the fact that Macron is a highly-paid Rothschild agent who became president of France, the question needs to be asked: Who is "we"?

"Ten days ago, President Trump was saying the United States of America had a duty to disengage from Syria… I assure you, we have convinced him that it is necessary to stay for the long term," Macron said in a televised interview.

This admission by Macron indicates to me that the Rothschilds are the hidden hand behind the whole media drama about the alleged nerve gas attacks in Salisbury and Syria. This would explain the way the media has been in lock step with the anti-Russian and anti-Syrian narratives, neither of which are supported with any evidence.
Rothschild partners on the Golan Heights oil project include Dick Cheney and Rupert Murdoch, the Rothschild-funded owner of News Corp. The Rothschilds invest in media in order to control public opinion. The recent Salisbury-Syria nerve gas drama is a perfect example of how their media investment works for them.

Why would the Rothschilds be involved in such dastardly intrigue? Firstly, because they are the leading Zionist family in Britain and France and the Zionist war effort in Syria is in desperate need of their help since the Syrian army is winning the war. Secondly, because they are invested in the oil fields on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, which legally belong to Syria. If Syria becomes fragmented as per the Israeli plan to dominate the region (i.e. Yinon Plan, 1982) there will be no legal challenger to Israel's annexation of the Golan Heights.
British prime minister Theresa May views the Balfour Declaration with the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu and Jacob Rothschild at his house. The Balfour Declaration, which is the birth certificate for the Zionist state, was actually a letter written to Lord Rothschild in 1917. The letter stated Britain's support for a Zionist state in Palestine, which was in effect one party (UK) giving to a second party (Rothschild Zionists) the land of a third party (i.e. Palestine, Palestinians).
Why would France, or America for that matter, want to wage war illegally against the government of Syria in the first place? Macron's frank admission suggests that we are not really talking about French national interests at all -- but about the interests of the Zionist international, which is headed by the Rothschilds.

The Rothschilds own the mainstream media outlets that promote the false pro-war narrative against Syria. They also happen to own the oil of the occupied Golan Heights.

The Good Friday Massacre was Intentional

April 2, 2018

March 30, 2018 - Hundreds of Palestinian protesters were shot by Israeli snipers who were sent to Gaza with orders to use live fire.

Eighteen of those shot were killed in what was a planned "bloodbath".

The Israeli military under Benjamin Netanyahu planned and prepared for a "Land Day" massacre of Palestinians on March 30, which was also Good Friday. It needs to be understood that the Israeli massacre of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip was intentional.

The clearest evidence that the massacre was intentional is the murder of the Palestinian farmer Omar Wahid Samur in the early morning on Friday, several hours before the protests began. Omar was murdered by a tank shell while he was picking parsley in the pre-dawn hours in a field one kilometer from the border.

As reported by CBS News on Friday:

"The Palestinian killed Friday was identified as 27-year-old Amr Samour. The Palestinian Health Ministry said he was struck by an Israeli tank shell in the southeastern corner of Gaza.

Yasser Samour, a relative and fellow farmer, said Amr Samour was harvesting parsley before dawn, in hopes of selling it fresh in the market later in the day.

"I was working on the next field," Samour said. "We heard shelling landing on the field where Amr works. We ran there and found him hit directly with a shell. We were more than a kilometer (.6 miles) away from the border."


Omar Wahid Samur kisses his father on his wedding day...

and being grieved over in the morgue on Land Day 2018.

Omar Wahid Samur was murdered by the Israeli military to provoke Palestinian fury. There is no other possible explanation.

Israel had positioned more than 100 snipers to fire on the protesters from the sand berms they have raised near the border fence. These snipers fired on the protesters with live ammunition, killing 18 and wounding more than 700.
Two days before the massacre, posted a brief article warning that Israel's deployment of snipers "could cause a bloodbath in Gaza."
Human rights advocates have expressed concern that the upcoming rallies could devolve into a bloodbath. “It looks like the Israeli army is preparing a massive firing squad to unleash on Palestinian civilian protesters and have been given orders to use live fire,” Yousef Munayyer, executive director of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, a Washington, D.C.-based coalition of organizations that oppose Israel's policies toward Palestinians, told Newsweek.
Source:  "Trump's Jerusalem Embassy Could Cause a Bloodbath in Gaza as Israeli Military Deploys Sharpshooters,", March 28, 2018

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said the protest was a "deliberate attempt to provoke a confrontation with Israel" and that "responsibility for any clashes lies solely with Hamas and other participating Palestinian organisations".

The fact that Gazans live in a complete state of siege, imposed by the Israeli army, and that the Israeli army killed Omar Wahid Samur (and others) hours before the protests began, exposes the lie of the Israeli government.

Although the Zionist-controlled U.S. government will seek to block it, there must be an independent and unbiased investigation of this massacre.

Hacking U.S. Energy Grid: Is Israel setting Russia up?

March 16, 2018

  • Are we being deceived about the Russian threat?
  • Is Israeli Military Intelligence setting Russia up?
  • Why I have been expecting false-flag hacking for the past decade.

Amit Yoran is an Israeli hacker who made a business out of hacking public utilities like Burlington Electric. Before 9/11, he served as a Network Security Manager at the Department of Defense and [was] responsible for maintaining operations of the Pentagon's network. Dr. Yoran also served as an officer in the United States Air Force [as the Director of Vulnerability Programs for Dept. of Defense's Computer Emergency Response Team]. He designed security architecture for the Pentagon and Office of the Secretary of Defense networks' backbones.

The largest unit in the Israeli army is Unit 8200, which specializes in hacking.

The badge of Unit 8200.

The title of an article in the New York Times caught my attention:

"Cyberattacks Put Russian Fingers on the Switch at Power Plants, U.S. Says."


The article begins: "The Trump administration accused Russia on Thursday of engineering a series of cyber-attacks that targeted American and European nuclear power plants and water and electric systems, and could have sabotaged or shut power plants off at will. United States officials and private security firms saw the attacks as a signal by Moscow that it could disrupt the West’s critical facilities in the event of a conflict."

I see these accusations as more baseless allegations from the anti-Russia campaign that is being waged daily by our controlled media and government. This is a very dangerous and reckless propaganda campaign that needs to be understood for what it is.

There is, for example, no solid evidence to support any of the accusations that the Russian government is behind this hacking. This is most likely a false-flag hacking operation by another party that is trying to frame the Russian government.

This seems to be the most likely explanation given the flurry of anti-Russian allegations swirling about London and Washington.

Who is the most likely suspect behind the hacking and allegations of Russian hacking of U.S. energy and utility networks? Unit 8200 of the Israeli military would have to be at the top of the list of suspects behind any false-flag hacking operation. Unit 8200 is the largest unit of the Israeli army and its specialty is hacking into computer networks.


Israelis like Amit Yoran have made a career out of hacking into energy and utility networks, as I explained in Chapter VII of Solving 9/11, "The Architecture of Terror." The following extracts explain who Amit Yoran is and how his company Riptech hacked into energy company networks around the world.


Business Week says the following about "Dr. Yoran":

Dr. [Amit] Yoran is a Co-Founder of Guardium, Inc. and also served as the Chief Executive Officer and President. He was the President and Chief Executive Officer at Riptech Inc., which Dr. Yoran co-founded in 1998.

He was appointed by George W. Bush as the administration's Cyber Chief, responsible for coordinating the nation's activities in cyber security. Prior to this, Dr. Yoran served as a Vice President for worldwide-managed security services at Symantec Corp. and was primarily responsible for managing security infrastructure in 40 countries.

Before working in the private sector, he served as a Network Security Manager at the Department of Defense and [was] responsible for maintaining operations of the Pentagon's network. Dr. Yoran also served as an officer in the United States Air Force [as the Director of Vulnerability Programs for Dept. of Defense's Computer Emergency Response Team]. He designed security architecture for the Pentagon and Office of the Secretary of Defense networks' backbones.


"Mr. [Amit] Yoran is chief executive of Riptech, a U.S. company that employs 'ethical hackers' to test vulnerability of networks, including those of utility companies," the Irish Times reported on October 5, 2001. "He [Yoran] says his teams have had success in disrupting utilities' power networks, in Europe particularly," according to the article, which was aptly titled, "Welcome to the Art of Electronic Warfare." The Yorans' company hacked into the computer networks of dozens of energy companies, the Los Angeles Times reported on August 20, 2001:

Riptech Inc., a security company in Alexandria, Va., has tested security for dozens of energy-industry clients. In every case, the firm penetrated Internet-connected corporate networks and often hopped from those networks into supposedly sealed grid-control systems, according to Riptech's president, Amit Yoran…

Riptech "was founded by Elad and Amit Yoran, two Israeli West Point graduates who claim years of security experience, and Tim Belcher, a Desert Storm veteran who serves as the company's chief technology officer," the Washington Times reported on December 11, 2000. "Amit Yoran reportedly helped design the Pentagon's computer security architecture," the Times reported.

Riptech was funded by companies associated with Israeli military intelligence through Amit's brother Elad.

Was Israel Involved in Weapons Smuggling on M/S Estonia?

Was Israel Involved in Weapons Smuggling on M/S Estonia?

Unknown Middle Eastern Nation behind Smuggling of Advanced Russian Weaponry on Passenger Ferry

by Christopher Bollyn
11 February 2005

The evidence indicates that the passenger ferry M/S Estonia had been used to smuggle people, drugs, and high-tech weaponry from the former Soviet arsenal. 

One thousand civilians are estimated to have died when the ferry named Estonia sank in the early hours of September 28, 1994. These people were apparently used as human shields in a high-level smuggling operation that went wrong.

Shocking new revelations indicate that clandestine shipments of Russian weapons technology, transported on a civilian passenger ferry under Sweden's watchful eye, were actually destined for an unknown nation in the Middle East.

Since the car and passenger ferry Estonia sank on September 28, 1994, there have been persistent rumors that a Middle Eastern nation was somehow involved in the catastrophe. A recent revelation from a Swedish customs chief that an earlier shipment of contraband military technology carried on Estonia had been secretly flown to an unknown destination in the Middle East - via Egypt - suggests that there is substance to these allegations.

There have been persistent rumors of Israeli involvement. A former East German intelligence agent, who claims to have worked with Mossad, told the author in 2000 that Israel had been involved in the Estonia catastrophe, but did not provide details.

The odd presence of two young men, Hicham Ben Hamou, 29, and Mohamed Ben Tounsi, 21, listed as Moroccans on the passenger list raises some questions. While these two men are listed among the 852 who perished in the disaster, their names are not included on the list of victims whose families received compensation from the insurance company.

Why did no Moroccan relatives of Ben Hamou and Ben Tounsi come forward to claim compensation? One explanation might be that these men were not Moroccans at all, but agents of an intelligence service, and there are no legitimate Moroccan relatives to make a claim.


On November 30, 2004, a program on Swedish state-supported television (SVT 1) reported that there had been a secret arrangement between Owe Wiktorin, Sweden's highest military commander at the time, and Ulf Larsson, then general director of customs, to clear specific shipments of military technology from Estonia, without inspection, on arrival in Stockholm.

The program, based on the confession of Lennart Henriksson, former chief of customs for Stockholm's harbor, reported that at least two previous shipments of Soviet weapons technology had been transported on the passenger ferry on September 14 and 20, 1994.

This covert weapons smuggling agreement was authorized at the highest level of the Swedish government, according to Henriksson. This was confirmed in an official investigation of the arrangement conducted by a specially appointed judge, Johan Hirschfeldt. Hirschfeldt's report, released January 21, stated that this arrangement was known at the highest levels of Sweden's government and defense department.

The secret transport of Soviet weapons and technology on Estonia, however, turned the civilian passenger ferry, with its passengers, into a military target. This must have crossed the minds of the Swedish authorities involved in the smuggling scheme.

The prime minister of Sweden at the time was Carl Bildt, from the conservative party, although his term ended two days after the catastrophe. Immediately after the sinking, Bildt promised the Swedish nation that the wreck would be salvaged and the victims' bodies recovered. His broken promises and documented involvement in an illegal weapons smuggling operation notwithstanding, Bildt went on to become a darling of the internationalist elite, adopted by the U.S.-based RAND Corp. and made a special envoy of the U.N. in the Balkans, where he began serving in 1995.

While the wreck lies in international waters, Sweden has actively prevented an independent investigation into what caused the disaster. The Swedish state has passed an extraterritorial law to prevent its citizens from diving to the wreck.

Sven Anér, veteran Swedish journalist and author, has provided AFP with information about the Middle Eastern connection with the weapons smuggling on Estonia. This material was censored from the SVT 1 exposé and has not been reported in the mainstream press.

Anér, born in 1921, worked with the daily Dagens Nyheter from 1948-62, including two years as Moscow correspondent, and with Swedish Radio-TV from 1963-71.

Lars Borgnäs, who produced the SVT 1 program, censored the most important information, Anér said. This was the fact that the secret military cargo on September 20 was not for the Swedish military but was en route via Egypt to an unknown destination. This raises the obvious question: Why would Sweden enable, facilitate, and cover-up another nation's crime?

Borgnäs told Anér he had omitted mentioning that the cargo was destined for a third country, via Egypt, out of "consideration for the parties involved."

Ingrid Sandqvist, customs chief at Arlanda confirmed to Anér that she had received orders to clear the cargo for forwarding via Egypt, although she did not "recall" having inspected it. Furthermore, Sandqvist said she did not know the origin of the cargo. Anér said he has the impression that Sandqvist had not been allowed to check the cargo, something she is supposed to do.

Lars Göran Farm, then marine engineer with Nordström and Thulin, Swedish co-owners of Estonia, confirmed to Anér that the ship owner had ordered a special escort from Vägverket, the Swedish highway authority, for a sensitive cargo on September 28, 1994. The Vägverket personnel, ready to escort the cargo from the harbor to Arlanda airport, left the harbor empty-handed after learning that Estonia had sunk.

The information that the previous shipment of military technology had been forwarded to a third country via Egypt suggests that the contraband cargo was not destined for the United States, Anér said. Given the circumstances, the custom chief's report suggests that its final destination may have been Israel.

Israel and the U.S. have worked together on numerous military projects, such as the Tactical High Energy Laser (THEL), a high-energy laser weapon system designed to shoot down missiles. The THEL was developed by a team of U.S. and Israeli contractors working with TRW, later acquired by Northrop Grumman, for the U.S. Space & Missile Defense Command and the Israeli military.

Daniel Saul Goldin, NASA Administrator from 1992-2001, had been general manager of the TRW Space and Technology Group in Redondo Beach, Calif. prior to coming to NASA. Goldin bragged about how he cut key personnel at NASA and ordered the hiring of sub-contractors, especially "women-owned" and "minority-owned" firms.

This policy, however, resulted in breaches in security and massive information loss through foreign sub-contractors working at NASA. The massive thieving by Chinese sub-contractors of sensitive NASA information, recently reported by the computer programmer Clint Curtis to a congressional panel, is the direct result of Goldin's hiring policy.


Much of the research science that goes into the development of laser weapons like THEL is conducted at Russian research institutes in Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod.

Israel has extensive, although not always friendly, relations with Russia. This is due to the fact that the Zionist state was founded primarily by immigrants from Russia and the former republics of the Soviet Union. A large influx of immigrants from the Soviet Union in the 1980s and 90s brought many well-educated scientists from Russian research centers to Israel.

Israel has close ties with former republics, such as Estonia. Shortly after regaining its independence in 1991, the tiny Baltic republic made a very odd purchase of used artillery pieces from Israel - for $50 million. Because many of the weapons didn't even function, the government of Estonia later sued to recover some of the money.


As reported in my article in the August 5, 2002 issue of American Free Press, divers hired by the Swedish government to survey the sunken vessel spent hours searching cabins on Deck 6 of Estonia for a black attaché case carried by a Russian weapons dealer named Aleksandr Voronin.

The divers worked for Rockwater, a subsidiary of Brown & Root Energy Services (BRES). Each diver had signed a lifetime agreement obliging them to remain silent about what they did on the wreck some 200 feet below the surface. BRES is a subsidiary of Halliburton.

Estonia researcher Jutta Rabe told AFP that Rockwater was not the lowest bidder, but got the job from Johan Franson, head of the Swedish Maritime Administration. "Secrecy," Rabe said, "was of paramount importance."

AFP has copies of the diving logs, which show that the sought-after attaché case was finally found in Cabin 6230, the cabin usually reserved for VIP guests or the relief captain, who was also on board.

Upon finding the case on Dec. 4, 1994, the diver asks his supervisor J. Barwick, "It says Aleksandr Voronin. Is this what we're looking for?"

Voronin is an Ashkenazic Jewish surname coming from the village of Voronino in the Bobruysk area of Byelorussia, according to A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames from the Russian Empire by Alexander Beider. The root "voron" means crow or raven.

Aleksandr, a member of the Voronin "business dynasty" from Kohtla-Järve on the Estonia-Russia border, owned a company in Tallinn called "Kosmos Association" while his relative, Valeri, had a branch company in Moscow which did business with the Kurchatov Institute, Russia's famous space technology and nuclear research center. Both Voronin companies were established to sell specimens of Russia's modern space and weapons technology.

Aleksandr Voronin was traveling on Estonia with Vassili, his 15-year-old son, and his father-in-law, Vassili Kruchkov. After being rescued, they told the press they were on a business trip to Denmark. Asked why they had not taken a plane, Aleksandr said he was worried that "high winds" could have delayed the plane.

When Aleksandr's wife, Larissa, heard about the sinking, she lit 33 Jewish ceremonial candles she had bought in Jerusalem on a trip to Israel. "I knew that these should only be lit in a dire or special occasion and that you should only burn them a little each time," she said. "I burned them to the end."

Fortunately, the three members of the Voronin family survived the sinking, but Aleksandr is said to have died of a heart attack at age 45, in 2002, two weeks after Süddeutsche Zeitung, a leading German newspaper, published details of his weapons and space technology business in connection to the Estonia catastrophe.

Rabe points to a group of Russian nationalists from the former Soviet intelligence agencies being behind the sinking. According to Rabe, the so-called Felix Group, which included Vladimir Putin, the current president of Russia, was opposed to the wide-spread plundering that occurred after the breakup of the Soviet Union.

The window of access to Soviet military secrets slammed shut in July 1998 when Putin became director of Russia's Federal Security Service. The Voronin companies and some of the American firms that dealt with them went out of business.

According to Rabe, the sinking of Estonia is summed up: "It was the perfect coup, which could have only been carried out by secret services or groups which include former members of the secret services as members, like the networks of terrorists, regardless of their origin or motivation."

The War on Terror:  The Plot to Rule the Middle East
A Unique Opportunity to Help
December 1, 2017

This is by far the most important public affairs topic of our times. The U.S. has been hoodwinked into complicity in war crimes rivaling the great monsters of history. We must fight back and reclaim our country and our world. This book explains in a few pages, even with a little repetition, how and why this deception happened. Even though the enemies of truth are spread throughout the highest echelons of society, they can be defeated one mind at a time. And also because the enemies are so positioned, their defeat can bring reform of a dimension other countermeasures cannot.  Bust 9-11 and change the world.

SHOULD be a MANDATORY High school and college reading book. This is how journalism and investigative reporting should be done. What we have now in media is GARBAGE blips of BS noise.

This is the reason there needs to be a hard-bound, fully annotated, and indexed edition of Solving 9/11:  The Deception that Changed the World for libraries and scholars. I am working on this project and hopefully this "library edition" will be ready in the spring of 2018.


Thursday - Bollyn on Rense Radio's USS Liberty Show

January 9, 2018

Rense Radio - Thursday, Jan. 11, 2 p.m. Pacific, 5 p.m. ET

I will be on Rense Radio discussing the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty with Dave Gahary & Phil Tourney this Thursday, 2-3 pm Pacific, 5-6 pm Eastern. Phil Tourney is a survivor of the 1967 attack on the Liberty and is the author of the book "Erasing the Liberty". Understanding the murderous and intentional Israeli attack on the USS Liberty is essential to understanding 9/11.


When Zionists Terrorized London

December 4, 2017
Updated December 9, 2017 - Added link to cached article:

A 1940s "wanted" poster from the Palestine Police shows three leaders of the terrorist Stern Gang: Yaacov Levstein, Yitzhak Shamir, and Nathan Yellin-Mor. Shamir went on to be prime minister of Israel. His son, Yair, is connected to the false-flag terror attacks of 9/11. Yellin-Mor is related to Gilad Atzmon, who told me that he is also related to Janet Yellin, Chairman of the Federal Reserve System. Atzmon is also related to Menachem Atzmon, the head of the Israeli company (ICTS) who controlled passenger screening operations at Boston's Logan Airport (and others) on 9/11. Another member of the Stern Gang was Benjamin Emanuel, the father of Rahm Emanuel, special adviser to both presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

Ed Cukierman, Yair Shamir, and Boaz Harel are the key people behind Cukierman & Co., Catalyst Investments, B.O.S., and ICTS, the Israeli-owned company responsible for passenger screening operations on 9/11. Yair Shamir is the son of the notorious Zionist terrorist/criminal leader, Yitzhak Shamir.

From the Israeli Press: British Intel Reveals How Zionists Terrorized London

There is, of course, a good reason why Zionist (i.e. Israeli) history is NOT taught in our universities in the United States. It is simply because if Zionist history were taught in our schools, then Americans would quickly realize that the real terrorists are the Zionists. Terrorism has been the tool of the Zionists all along, and continues to be so to this day.

The following article from today's Israeli press (Ha'aretz) sheds some light on this history:

Coat Bomb and Explosive Prosthesis: British Intel Files Reveal How the Zionist Stern Gang Terrorized London
Ha'aretz, December 2, 2017 

  • Zionist terrorism was the main threat.
  • MI5 placed known extremist Jewish and Zionist groups in Britain under intense surveillance.
  • Stern Gang member claimed that he had “invented the book bomb.”
  • “The execution was perfect. I learned an important lesson. No security measures can stop sophisticated imaginative planning.”
    - Yaacov Levstein of the Stern Gang (i.e. LEHI)

MI5's dossiers on the group released this week cast the Cold War's early years in a stark new light: Terrorism, not the Soviet Union, was the main threat

Records declassified this week by Britain’s Security Service, MI5, reveal an urgent terrorist threat that Britain faced in the 20th century. No, it wasn’t the Irish Republican Army or Islamist terrorist groups that would plague Britain later in the century, but rather extremist Zionist groups fighting the British after World War II to establish the State of Israel.

In July 1946, one of these groups, the Irgun, led by the future Israeli prime minister and Nobel Peace Prize winner Menachem Begin, blew up the headquarters of the British administration in Palestine, Jerusalem’s King David Hotel, with heavy loss of civilian life and damage. The newly released MI5 files show that another group fighting the British, the Lehi or “Stern Gang,” dispatched cells to carry out bombings and assassinations in Britain itself. The Stern Gang is thought to be the world’s last terrorist group to describe itself publicly as “terrorist,” with some of its members using the term as a badge of honor…


In June 1947, two months after the attempted bombing of the Colonial Office, a Stern Gang cell operating in Italy posted 21 letter bombs to senior British politicians and cabinet members including Prime Minister Clement Attlee, Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin and Chancellor of the Exchequer Stafford, Cripps as well as Winston Churchill. Most of the letter bombs were intercepted, but some reached their intended recipients and failed to go off.

Boston Radio Show Pulled Off Air after Bollyn Interview

November 15, 2017

On September 3, I was interviewed by Ahmad Abdulibad, the host and producer of the "National Hollah Black" on WRBB at Northeastern University in Boston (104.9 FM). Shortly after the September 3 interview aired, the "National Hollah Black" program was pulled off the air after many years on WRBB because of grossly unfair accusations of "hate speech." This is the kind of censorship 9/11 truth faces in America today.

(Bollyn interview begins just at 1:01:30 into the program.)

The Pentagon's Abandonment of its Own People on 9/11

November 2, 2017

"The Pentagon's functioning," Rumsfeld said on 9/11, but was it?
The Pentagon's 9/11 press conference - Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, flanked by Secretary of the Army Tom White, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Hugh Shelton, and Senators John Warner (R-VA), and Carl Levin (D-MI), the Ranking Member and Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Why did the Pentagon fail to rescue its own people, and why did it turn the site of an "act of war" over to the F.B.I.?

Carol Valentine gave me a binder with some of her articles about 9/11 during my recent tour. One of the articles about the attack on the Pentagon is titled, "Pentagon RESCUE? - Open Bloody Questions..."

Valentine raises many questions in this article, some better than others, but the one that strikes me as most important is this: Why did the Pentagon turn over the site of an "act of war" to the F.B.I. on 9/11?


We know the F.B.I. was in charge of the Pentagon site because the Secretary of the Army, Thomas E. White, said so during the Sept. 11, 2001 (6:42 p.m.) Dept.of Defense News Briefing.

Q: Mr. Secretary?
A: Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld: Yes?
Q: Can you describe the fire-fighting efforts that are going on right now in that corridor and the search-and-rescue efforts that are beginning?
A: Rumsfeld: Can I describe them?
Q: Yeah.
A: Rumsfeld: Why don't we let the Secretary of the Army, who was out there with me a few minutes ago and has been talking to the incident commander on the site.
A: Secretary of the Army Thomas E. White: I think it's fair to say at this point that the fire is contained, and will shortly, if not already, be sufficiently controlled to allow entry into the building. That entry will be supervised by the FBI, who are in charge of the site, assisted by the fire departments that are present. We, on the Army side, will support them as they go in the building and search for casualties and bring them out, then we will support them in dealing with that. That's what's going on on the ground.

Carol Valentine described this as the military abandoning their responsibilities and turning the military site of an act of war over to civilian authorities:


Let's go back to the beginning, and state the obvious. The Pentagon is not your ordinary run-of the-mill office building. The Pentagon is the military headquarters for the mightiest military power on earth. It is the home of the US Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines, and Special Operations.

According to the Official Story, the 9-11 attack on the Pentagon was an act of war. Rumsfeld and the top brass had lawful jurisdiction over the piece of real estate on which the "act of war" had just occurred; the Pentagon building was a war zone. But what did Rumsfeld, Gen. Shelton, and the top brass do? On September 11, 2001, they gave jurisdiction of the war zone to the FBI — a division of the civilian Department of Justice. (Robert S. Mueller had just been appointed FBI Director the week before on September 4.)

This may sound like a small detail to some people, but it is of crucial importance. It is exactly what happened in New York City and Shanksville, Pennsylvania: The F.B.I. took over the sites and investigation, actions which resulted in the destruction of evidence and cover-up of the truth. On 9/11 the F.B.I. was under the control of a son of the Mossad, Asst. Attorney General Michael Chertoff, the Israeli-American dual national who ran the Criminal Division of the Dept. of Justice and who was in charge of the investigation.

Under Chertoff, rather than carrying out a blue-ribbon investigation of 9/11, the F.B.I. oversaw the cover-up of the worst act of mass murder and terrorism in U.S. history. A proper investigation of 9/11 would, therefore, have to begin with the arrest and investigation of Michael Chertoff.

A Blank Check for Perpetual War

July 8, 2017

"Under U.S. law it is illegal for any American to provide money or assistance to al Qaeda, ISIS or other terrorist groups. If you or I gave money, weapons, or support to al Qaeda or ISIS, we would be thrown in jail. Yet the U.S. government has been violating this law for years, quietly supporting allies and partners of al Qaeda, ISIL, Jabhat Fateh al Sham, and other terrorist groups with money, weapons, and intelligence support, in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government."
– Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) introducing the Stop Arming Terrorists Act, December 8, 2016

The AUMF resolution passed after 9/11 has been used to authorize and fund more than 37 military operations in 14 countries.

Three days after 9/11, after only two hours of debate, the U.S. Congress passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF),  a joint resolution giving the President the authority "to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001." Signed into law by President George W. Bush on September 18, 2001, the AUMF is the Congressional authorization that funds the War on Terror.

Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) was the only member of Congress to vote against the resolution. In her statement of September 14, 2001, Lee said:

We are not dealing with a conventional war. We cannot respond in a conventional manner. I do not want to see this spiral out of control… we must be careful not to embark on an open-ended war with neither an exit strategy nor a focused target. We cannot repeat past mistakes.


Rep. Lee's warning about the AUMF spiraling "out of control" and leading to "an open-ended war" has proved prophetic. In the first sixteen years of the War on Terror the AUMF resolution has been used for more than 37 military operations in 14 countries. Operation Inherent Resolve, for example, the current U.S. military operation in Iraq and Syria against the militant group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is one of the 37 operations, although ISIL did not even exist in 2001. In September 2014, citing the AUMF, President Obama claimed that he had the authority he needed to wage war against ISIL.

After years of persistent effort, on June 29, 2017, Rep. Lee succeeded in getting her amendment that would end the 2001 AUMF authorization through the House Appropriations Committee. If the final funding bill goes through with Lee's amendment it will give Congress 240 days to debate new authorization. The 2001 authorization would be repealed at the end of the eight-month period of debate.

"I've been working on this for years and years and years. I'm just really pleased that Republicans and Democrats today really understood what I've been saying and I've been explaining for the last 16 years, and that is, this resolution is a blank check for perpetual war," Lee said after her amendment passed the committee.

Before the vote, the congressmen who spoke in support of Lee's amendment said it was high time that Congress debate the authorization for the War on Terror. Several of them stressed that Congress had failed the members of the U.S. military by not debating the wars and operations to which they had been sent.

“Any administration can rely on this blank check to wage endless war,” Lee told the committee members before the vote. "Many of us can also agree that a robust debate and vote is necessary, long overdue, and must take place."


Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) is another courageous congresswoman who has taken a stand against the duplicity of the War on Terror. In December 2016, Rep. Gabbard, an Iraq war veteran, introduced legislation which would prohibit the U.S. government from using American taxpayer dollars to provide funding, weapons, training, and intelligence support to groups like the Levant Front, Fursan al Haqq, and other allies of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, al Qaeda, and ISIS, or to countries who are providing direct or indirect support to those same groups.

In introducing the Stop Arming Terrorists Act on December 8, 2016, Gabbard said the U.S. government has been "quietly supporting allies and partners of al Qaeda, ISIL, Jabhat Fateh al Sham and other terrorist groups with money, weapons, and intelligence support, in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government. The CIA has also been funneling weapons and money through Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others who provide direct and indirect support to groups like ISIS and al Qaeda. This support has allowed al Qaeda and their fellow terrorist organizations to establish strongholds throughout Syria, including in Aleppo."

"This madness must end. We must stop arming terrorists," Gabbard concluded. "The Government must end this hypocrisy and abide by the same laws that apply to its’ citizens."

The legislation proposed by these two brave congresswomen indicates there is an urgent need for a real congressional debate on the AUMF and the military operations being waged under the rubric of the War on Terror.  After nearly sixteen years of senseless war in Afghanistan, the fighting and dying continues and the cost of the war increases by $4 million per hour, or nearly $100 million per day, according to the National Priorities Project. The war in Afghanistan has already cost nearly $777 billion, as of July 2017, and the total cost of the wars fought since 9/11 is some $1.7 trillion.  One might ask, if it weren't for Rep. Lee's amendment at what point would Congress take action to rein in the runaway War on Terror?

Rep. Gabbard's Stop Arming Terrorists Act should broaden the debate and open the discussion about the duplicity of the U.S. intervention in Syria.  Gabbard's bill indicates that a covert strategy is at work that the public is generally not aware of. The U.S. has provided "direct and indirect support to groups like ISIS and al Qaeda," Gabbard said when she introduced the bill. These are the very same groups the U.S. is supposedly fighting in the War on Terror.  Why would the U.S. be supporting the avowed enemy of its Operation Inherent Resolve in Syria? Shouldn't this be a subject of discussion and investigation by the media? Why isn't it?

For a person with a conventional understanding of the War on Terror, informed by the mainstream media, it certainly makes no sense that the U.S. would be supporting groups like ISIS and al Qaeda, against which it is supposedly waging war. It isn't that Rep. Gabbard is misinformed, rather it is the public that has been misinformed and deceived for years about the true purpose of the War on Terror operations, like the anti-ISIS operation in Syria and Iraq.

The fact that the U.S. and its allies have supported terrorist groups like ISIS and al Qaeda indicates that these groups are being used to advance the real strategy of the U.S.-led operation in Syria. The U.S. intervention in Syria began in 2012 under President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In a leaked email written by Secretary Clinton in December 2012 she reveals that the U.S. policy to overthrow the Syrian government was being pursued to help Israel. Clinton's email said:  "The best way to help Israel deal with Iran's growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad."

The U.S. State Department under Hillary Clinton sent fleets of Toyota trucks into Syria to whom they claimed was the “Free Syrian Army.” The trucks wound up in the hands of ISIS.

This is a very important revelation because it indicates that the real reason the U.S. has intervened in Syria is not to fight terror, but to overthrow the government because it would be "the best way to help Israel deal with Iran's growing nuclear capability." When we understand that the Israeli strategic plan (i.e. Yinon Plan) for Iraq and Syria calls for splintering these nations into ethnic or religious enclaves we can make sense of U.S. support for groups like ISIS and al Qaeda. They are being used to break up these multi-ethnic secular Arab states in order to advance the Zionist plan to dominate the Middle East.

The idea that Syria should be broken up into ethnic enclaves is pushed by Israeli officials and by the Zionist-controlled media as the only solution to the conflict.  Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, for example, at the Munich Security Conference on February 14, 2016, said:

Unfortunately we are going to face chronic instability for a very, very long period of time… And part of any grand strategy is to avoid the past, saying we are going to unify Syria. We know how to make an omelette from an egg. I don't know how to make an egg from an omelette… We should realize that we are going to see enclaves, Alawistan, Syrian Kurdistan, Syrian Druzistan. They might cooperate or fight each other.

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon:  "We should realize that we are going to see enclaves, Alawistan, Syrian Kurdistan, Syrian Druzistan. They might cooperate or fight each other."

On the same day, Ram Ben-Barak, Director General of Israel’s Intelligence Ministry, spoke on Israel's Army Radio saying, "I think that, ultimately, Syria should be turned into regions under the control of whoever is there – the Alawites where they are, the Sunnis where they are." A partition of the Syrian state along sectarian lines was "the only possible solution," Ben-Barak said.

In order to make sense of the reports of U.S. support for jihadist militants and terrorist groups in Syria it is essential to understand that the War on Terror is really just a misleading cover to deceive the public about the real operational plan at work, which is to break Syria into ethnic enclaves as called for in the Yinon Plan, "The Zionist Plan for the Middle East." With this understanding of the deceptive nature of the War on Terror we are better able to make sense of the confusing developments and reports coming from the Middle East.

Media Ignores Trump Criticism of Middle Eastern Wars

June 25, 2017

President Trump on the Wasted Lives and Money in the Middle East Wars

"As of a few months ago, our country has spent $6 trillion in the Middle East, wasted. And the lives, the lives, thousands and thousands and thousands of lives. $6 trillion and thousands of young, beautiful lives.

"We started 16 years ago and it's in far worse shape than it was 16 years ago by many times over. So, we spent all of this money, all of these lives.

"And let me tell you, I came in and took over a very, very difficult hand. But we're going to get it fixed. That's what you put me here for. We're going to get it fixed."

The Media Ignored this Comment like Trump Never Said It

What is most significant about Trump's common-sense comment on the money and lives wasted on the post-9/11 wars in the Middle East is that the media completely ignored this comment. The same media that spins articles from every Trump tweet concerning Russian "interference" in the election ignored this important comment made by the commander-in-chief about the wars in the Middle East and delivered in a speech on June 21. This fact says a great deal about who is deceiving the people about the War on Terror - and who is not. The controlled media has, after all, consistently supported the deception of 9/11 and the fraudulent War on Terror. 

A search of news articles finds only ONE mention of this comment in the news, and it is a critical one written by an Annenberg Foundation outlet called that was re-published by media outlets:

Israeli Producers with Prior Knowledge of 9/11

June 17, 2017

1994 Iron Man Series Predicts 9/11?
Video Link -

Of the media products that suggest prior knowledge of the 9/11 attacks, the Iron Man cartoon that aired on October 22, 1994, must be at the top of the list because the 17-minute television cartoon depicts a plane and missiles hitting the Twin Towers and a plane smashing into the Pentagon in the first minute. The 52-second video clip (above) from the episode entitled "The Grim Reaper Wears a Teflon Coat" shows these depictions.

Because this program clearly suggests prior knowledge of the 9/11 plot to attack the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the first question to be asked is, who produced this program?

The producers of "The Grim Reaper Wears a Teflon Coat" episode in which the Twin Towers and Pentagon are attacked are the Israeli Avi Arad and Stan Lee, born Stanley Martin Lieber in New York City.

The strike on the Pentagon as depicted in the cartoon by Avi Arad and Stan Lee

Avi Arad is an Israeli producer who has worked closely with Arnon Milchan, the senior Israeli agent in Hollywood who smuggled nuclear triggers for Israel's nuclear arsenal in the 1980s. Here Arad and Milchan are seen at the premiere of their film Daredevil in February 2003. Milchan also made a film depicting an airplane attack on a high-rise tower in New York.

Milchan's first film, The Medusa Touch (1978), depicted a large plane striking the Pan Am Building in New York City. Milchan has worked closely with Israeli military intelligence all of his adult life. 

When agents of a foreign government, like the criminal Arnon Milchan and Avi Arad, produce films and television programs that clearly indicate prescience of an attack that later occurs, why are they not arrested and interrogated on suspicion of having prior knowledge of the attacks? The fact that these Israelis made films depicting the 9/11 attacks years before they actually occurred shows that the planning by Israeli military intelligence of the 9/11 attacks goes back to the 1970s, when the Likud party of Menachem Begin came to power. The planning for the 9/11 attacks in the late 1970s coincides with the planning, by Israeli military intelligence, for the War on Terror to deceive the U.S. military into waging war against Israel's enemies on behalf of the Zionist state. The Israeli-designed terrorism of 9/11 was carried out to kick-start their long-planned War on Terror.

Gen. Wesley Clark on Israel's 9/11 Policy Coup at the Pentagon

June 15, 2017

What happened on 9/11 is that we didn't have a strategy, we didn't have bipartisan agreement, we didn't have American understanding of it, and we had instead a policy coup in this country – a coup – a policy coup. Some hard-nose people took over the direction of American policy and they never bothered to inform the rest of us…

Whether you're a Democrat or a Republican, if you're an American you ought to be concerned about the strategy of the United States in this region. What is our aim? What is our purpose? Why are we there? Why are Americans dying in this region? That is the issue.
– General Wesley Clark, Commonwealth Club of California, San Francisco, October 3, 2007

Seven years ago, Gen. Wesley Clark revealed the post-9/11 Pentagon memo to "take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off, Iran."

This memo and the super-aggressive war agenda behind it baffled Gen. Clark and the Pentagon brass because it was an Israeli war agenda that was being imposed on the U.S. military in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks. As Clark said about 9/11, "we didn't have American understanding of it," suggesting there was a non-American "understanding" of 9/11 that was behind the coup and the war agenda.

The Israeli war agenda of seven countries in five years was imposed through the Zionist Neo-Cons who reigned on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board: Paul Wolfowitz, Dov Zakheim, and Douglas Feith, among others. The photo below shows them meeting with the Israeli Chief of Staff, Shaul Mofaz, shortly after 9/11.

Hillary Clinton's emails as Secretary of State prove that Obama's policy to use force to overthrow the government of Syria was being done because it was "the best way to help Israel." This is evidence of complicity in a "war of aggression" - the supreme war crime.

9/11 was carried out by Israeli military intelligence in order to kick-start their war agenda under the guise of waging the War on Terror. Israeli military intelligence is clearly the mastermind behind both 9/11 and the aggressive war agenda in the Middle East. The United States has been engaged in carrying out this foreign war agenda for nearly 16 years at great expense to our nation - and the world. We need to grasp the Zionist deception behind 9/11 and the War on Terror and demand that our political leaders and media call for an end to the madness.

U.S. Co-operation with ISIS Revealed in Mainstream Media

June 9, 2017

“Everything the West is doing in Syria is against international law.”
- Former German Defense Minister Willy Wimmer, 26 October 2016

It is now being reported in the mainstream media that U.S. forces are working with ISIS and other mercenary forces in Syria to overthrow the elected government of that nation. Will Americans accept the ISIS scam that is becoming more obvious every day?

The U.S. and its allies, especially Israel, have created ISIS and the war in Syria, which now appears to be approaching the end-game. 

On Friday afternoon, June 9, a story was published by the Associated Press (and mainstream media sites across America) about how the United States appears to be working with ISIS terrorists in Syria against the elected government of Bashar al Assad.  The source of the claim was the commander of Russian forces in Syria:

Col. Gen. Sergei Surovikin, the commander of Russian forces in Syria, said IS made a deal earlier this month with the Kurdish forces to leave two villages southwest of Raqqa and move toward Palmyra.

Surovikin said the U.S.-led coalition along with the allied Kurds "collude with the leaders of the IS, who surrender the areas under their control and head to provinces where Syrian government forces operate."

"There is an impression that under the slogan of fighting international terrorism in Syria the Americans are using IS to offer resistance to government forces' advances," he said at a briefing...

Surovikin also criticized the U.S. for trying to block Syrian government forces from taking control of the country's southern border.

He said that Syrian government troops had secured territorial gains in the southern Suwayda province near the Jordanian border, but encountered resistance from the U.S.-led coalition.

The U.S. has dealt the Syrian government and its allied troops several blows near Tanf close to the border with Jordan, where the U.S. trains Syrian opposition forces.

Surovikin dismissed the U.S. argument that Syrian government forces there posed a threat to the training camp as "absurd" and criticized Washington's action as a violation of Syria's sovereign right to protect its border.

Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military's General Staff also questioned the U.S. role in Syria.

"Having declared the goal of fighting international terrorism, the coalition strikes Syrian troops while letting IS militants exit the encircled areas unhampered, thus boosting terrorist groupings around Palmyra and Deir el-Zour," he said. "It raises a question why they do it and what their real goals are."

This AP story, written by Vladimir Isachenkov in Moscow, is the first mainstream media story that addresses the obvious fakeness of the U.S. military policy vis-a-vis ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria. Americans have been led to believe that U.S. forces in Syria are fighting ISIS, but U.S. actions in the past few weeks, especially in the southern desert near al Tanf near the Syrian border with Jordan and Iraq, have clearly revealed that U.S. forces are waging an illegal war in Syria against the government of Syria.

The statements by senior Russian commanders, who are in Syria at the behest of the Syrian government to fight terrorists, will be difficult for many Americans to understand because they deal with the duplicitous nature of the War on Terror, a subject which has not been discussed in the controlled mainstream media. It will be hard for the Pentagon to explain their way out of this. It seems that the cat is now out of the bag.

The same Russian commanders also said that the war in Syria will soon be over. On the same day, Syrian government forces went around the illegal U.S. garrison near al Tanf and reached the border with Iraq. This is the first time in three years that Syria has had control of a section of the border with Iraq. This also means that the U.S. garrison at al Tanf is surrounded by Syrian government forces. The only way out for the U.S. coalition forces in al Tanf would be to retreat into Jordan - or fight their way through Syrian government-held territory to go... where?

It seems that the Russians are probably right about all of these things and that we are finally approaching the end of the war in Syria. The U.S. position in Syria is illegal and unsustainable. President Trump would have been smarter to have ended U.S. involvement in Syria on Day One and withdrawn all U.S. military personnel. That would have shown true leadership with a bold change of course removing the United States from what has been a secret and sordid war of terror and aggression.

It will be hard for the U.S. and its allies to admit defeat and quit Syria, but the sooner they do, the better for all concerned.

USS Liberty Survivor Bryce Lockwood Interview

June 8, 2017

Who started the war in Syria?

June 6, 2017

Willy Wimmer: I think it is vital and necessary to look for relief for the humanitarian problems we have in Syria. And I think we should stop the killing as soon as possible. That is one thing we have to take into consideration. On the other side, we should never forget who started the civil war in Syria and when these human rights organizations blame one country in particular, we should never forget that the US, Great Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and Qatar created a civil war in Syria. I won’t mention Israel because of the situation in the neighborhood.

When we complain about the human suffering in Syria, we have to take into consideration who started everything. And the interesting thing is that everything the West is doing in Syria is against international law; they have no support of the UN Charter, even what the German militaries are doing there is against our Constitution. The only power which is in accordance with international law in Syria is the Russian Federation and because the actual president who had been elected freely, as for the support, it is in accordance with the international law. We have to take this into consideration when it comes to accusations from Human Rights Watch and others.

The Zionist Obstruction of Justice for 9-11 Victims

May 26, 2017
This is a restored article. The original article is titled "The Zionist Obstruction of Justice for 9-11 Victims," September 12, 2008, on (site confiscated in January 2009). It is also in my book, Solving 9/11: The Original Articles (pp. 223-230).
Original archived at:

We should have lost our memories as well as our voices,
were it as easy to forget as to be silent.
- Tacitus, Agricola

Michael Chertoff, the nation's top domestic security official, is an Israeli national whose mother was a Mossad agent. Chertoff is the key Zionist agent who has managed the "non-investigation" of 9-11, ordered the massive destruction of evidence, and censored the information that would expose the Israeli role in the crime of the century.


The Zionist Obstruction of Justice for 9-11 Victims

Alvin Hellerstein, the federal judge hearing the 9-11 lawsuits, is a Zionist devoted to the State of Israel.

His Talmud-thumping son has lived on a extremist Zionist settlement on the Israeli-occupied West Bank since 2001.

The key defendant in the 9-11 tort litigation is an Israeli airline security company owned by a convicted Likud criminal tied to Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert, who made a secret visit to New York City the day before 9-11, and senior officers of Israeli intelligence.

How can Americans tolerate this blatant conflict of interest in the 9-11 tort litigation?

Answer: The controlled media doesn't talk about it. It's censored information in a nation that believes it has a "free press."

Last updated on Thursday, Sept. 11, 2008

Christopher Bollyn, the author, has worked
to solve the 9-11 crime since the day of the attacks.

The judge in charge of all 9-11 lawsuits is closely tied to Israel, the Jewish state whose military intelligence is the key defendant in the 9-11 tort litigation. U.S. district judge Alvin K. Hellerstein's only son, Joseph, is a Talmudist who lives in an illegal Jewish settlement on the West Bank (Modi'in). The younger Hellerstein studies the anti-Christian Talmud, speaks Hebrew, and works for an Israeli law firm in Tel Aviv - since 2001.

PROBLEM: The key defendant in the 9-11 litigation is Huntleigh USA, the passenger screening company that failed to prevent 19 hijackers from boarding planes on 9-11. Huntleigh is owned by the Israeli firm of ICTS, which is run by senior officers of Israeli intelligence. Judge Hellerstein is pushing the relatives to reach out-of-court settlements in order to avoid any fair and open trial that would have to answer questions and lead to discovery of the Israeli criminal network behind 9-11.

Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein oversaw all 96 cases in the 9/11 litigation.

Judge Hellerstein is clearly not suitable to oversee the 9-11 litigation given his clear conflict of interest. Given the egregious conflict of interest in this massive and historic case, Hellerstein should step back and all the 9-11 cases should be re-instated and heard by an unbiased judge. For Hellerstein to be allowed to continue and close the book on the 9-11 litigation without fair and open trials for the victims' families would be an absolute travesty of justice.

Note on Hellerstein's Talmudic beliefs and Zionist support:

Alvin K. Hellerstein is a devoted and practicing Talmudist and Zionist and his family belongs to and even heads organizations that practice and teach racial and religious discrimination on a daily basis. Jewish law, as defined by the Talmud, discriminates between Jews and non-Jews. (e.g. Gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has "exposed their money to Israel." - Baba Kamma 37b.)

Hellerstein is a member of The Jewish Center in New York, which teaches the Talmud and "considers Israel activism a core value." Israeli law, based on the Talmud, openly discriminates between Jews and non-Jews. Naive Christians and Americans who are ignorant of these facts wrongly believe they are supporting a "democracy" in Israel. Nothing could be further from the truth. Israel is a "Jews Only" democracy. Non-Jews have virtually no rights under Israeli law.

The Code of Conduct for U.S. Judges applies to federal judges like Hellerstein. The following code is from Canon 2. The second and third points apply directly to Judge Hellerstein's Talmudic beliefs and his long-standing family ties with Talmudic and Zionist causes -- and the State of Israel.



A. A judge should respect and comply with the law and should act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.

B. A judge should not allow family, social, or other relationships to influence judicial conduct or judgment. A judge should not lend the prestige of the judicial office to advance the private interests of others; nor convey or permit others to convey the impression that they are in a special position to influence the judge. A judge should not testify voluntarily as a character witness.

C. A judge should not hold membership in any organization that practices invidious discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, or national origin.

Judge Alvin Hellerstein's actions are protecting a key defendant in the 9-11 tort litigation - the Israeli passenger-screening company involved at the airports on 9-11. Hellerstein is a Talmudist who is devoted to the State of Israel, where his son lives on an illegal Zionist settlement - on the occupied West Bank. To whom is Judge Hellerstein loyal and why is this blatant conflict of interest on the part of the Zionist judge ignored by the U.S. media?


In a litigious nation like America, given the official version of 9-11, one would expect that some of the relatives of the thousands of people killed on 9-11 would be able to get a "fair and open trial" in which the airlines and their passenger screening companies would be held accountable for their serious failures that day. Seven years later, however, not one victim's lawsuit has gone to trial in the 9-11 tort litigation presided over by Alvin K. Hellerstein, a federal judge in New York City. Understanding why the 9-11 litigation has been completely obstructed requires understanding the key people involved in the tortuous process to deny discovery and justice for the victims of 9-11.

Hundreds of 9-11 survivors traveled to Washington to protest the failure to investigate at the U.S. Capitol in June 2002. Oddly, although Hillary Clinton and Joe Lieberman spoke at the rally of relatives, the event was not covered by any network, including C-Span. The controlled media did not want the public to know the truth about 9-11. Things have not changed. Not one 9-11 victim's lawsuit has been tried in a U.S. court. Is this the "American Way?"

The closed trial and sentence of 5 years for Osama bin Laden's driver, Salim Ahmed Hamdan, by a military tribunal in Cuba was "a hollow victory in the war on terror," the New York Times opined in their Sunday editorial of August 10, 2008. The Hamdan verdict reached through the closed process of the secretive military tribunal at Guantanamo was "a blow to America's standards of justice and image in the world," the nation's most prestigious newspaper wrote:

The rule of law, including fair and open trials, must be restored. Guantanamo needs to be shut down, as Mr. McCain has said many times. Detainees must be put on trial quickly in real courts, and those who are not guilty must be freed.

The New York Times knows it is on safe ice with the position stated in this editorial. Most Americans, indeed, most of the world would readily agree that any Guantanamo detainee charged of a crime should be tried in a real court, not before a Soviet-style military tribunal in which acquittals are ruled out beforehand.

"There are some evidently dangerous men in Guantanamo, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, accused of being the organizer of the Sept. 11 attacks," the Times wrote. "But it is hard to see a real trial ever taking place for Mr. Mohammed, who was subject to waterboarding and other abuse during interrogation," the editorial continued without explaining for the reader why the New York Times found it "hard to see a real trial ever taking place" for the confessed "mastermind of 9-11."


As we approach the seventh anniversary of 9-11, one might expect the New York Times to speak out as strongly on behalf of the victims and relatives of those lost on 9-11. It should be remembered, after all, that not one of the 96 wrongful death lawsuits of 9-11 victims has come close to getting a "fair and open trial." Nearly all of the wrongful death lawsuits have been settled secretly out of court through the special negotiator Sheila L. Birnbaum, a New York lawyer who specializes in insurance law and tort litigation at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP (a.k.a. Skadden Arps), where she works with her senior partner, Kenneth J. Bialkin, age 79.

It should be noted that Birnbaum's key role in trying to settle all the 9-11 lawsuits out of court is a well kept secret. It is not discussed in the controlled media and is not even mentioned on her biographical webpage at Skadden Arps. Why is Birnbaum's role as "special master" in the 9-11 litigation being kept out of the news? Why is the Hellerstein-Birnbaum team's intense pressure to close the book on the 9-11 lawsuits - without giving the victims the jury trial they want - never discussed in the media?


At the top of Skadden's Complex Mass Tort and Insurance Group, Sheila L. Birnbaum has been nicknamed "The Queen of Torts."

Richard "Dickie" Scruggs, a Mississippi lawyer, has gone head-to-head with Birnbaum over State Farm insurance coverage for policy holders whose houses were damaged in Hurricane Katrina. Scruggs agreed that Birnbaum is a tough negotiator, but only smiled when asked to describe her tactics, according to the Sun Herald of Biloxi.

Jim Hood, Attorney General for the State of Mississippi, has worked with Scruggs in the negotiations for the victims of Katrina. Hood was more forthcoming with the Sun Herald about Birnbaum's tactics. "She is mean," Hood said. "She would cuss. She beat Dickie Scruggs and them down to a nub."

I mean, they were just, just frantic. I've never seen anything like it. And what she would do is, she would cuss them. And a Southerner -- old Don Barrett (a Scruggs attorney) came to me one day and said, 'I've been fussed at by women all my life, but I ain't never been cussed like that.' You know, they didn't know how to react to it. So she was effective.

"I'm a tough negotiator because that's my business."
- Sheila Birnbaum, "Special Master" of 9-11 Tort Litigation

Birnbaum negotiates out-of-court settlements for 9-11 wrongful death lawsuits in the federal court of Alvin K. Hellerstein. A lesbian multi-millionaire partner at Skadden Arps, Birnbaum works with the former chief of the International Order of B'nai B'rith (Jewish Freemasons), Kenneth J. Bialkin. Birnbaum lives with Barbara Wrubel, another Skadden lawyer.

The 9-11 settlements all come with gag orders preventing the plaintiffs from discussing their settlements. In this way, all of the 9-11 lawsuits may soon be wrapped up behind closed doors - without a single case ever going to trial.

Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein has long pushed hard on the victims' lawyers to negotiate with Birnbaum and settle the cases. Unfortunately, this is not widely known because the controlled press completely avoids reporting about the tortuous 9-11 tort litigation, most of which is actually carried out behind closed doors.

The New York Times, for example, has only mentioned the "special mediator" Sheila Birnbaum once in connection with the 9-11 litigation and that was before she became the "special master" responsible for settling the remaining cases. The Boston Globe has mentioned Birnbaum's key role only once, in an article from August 2006 that gives some idea of the pressure Hellerstein has used to push the plaintiffs' lawyers to close the book on the 9-11 tort litigation - without going to trial:

The judge has repeatedly prodded Motley Rice [lawyers for the 9-11 relatives] to push aggressively for settlements.

"Why aren't you settling your cases?" Hellerstein said to [Donald A.] Migliori at a June 8 [2006] hearing in US District Court in New York.

"We're working on it," Migliori replied.

"You're not working hard enough. Ms. Birnbaum [the mediator] tells me she is getting no response from you. . . . Tell your colleagues that the judge is getting very impatient with this."

"I will," Migliori said.

"And will not put up with more delay," Hellerstein added. "There's much too much delay that has gone by and much too much work to be done in this case. I will not tolerate it."

Hellerstein's hard-ball tactics and pressure has resulted in 91 of the original 96 wrongful death cases being settled - out of court. Only 5 wrongful death cases remain from the thousands of people who were killed on 9-11. These 96 cases represent the families who sought answers and justice for the loss of their loved ones through the U.S. court system.

These are the 9-11 victims' families who did not want to accept "blood money," a one-time government payment for their loss, negotiated by the previous "special master" Kenneth Feinberg, who doled out money from the taxpayer-funded 7 billion dollar September 11 Victim Compensation Fund. Acceptance of money from the fund effectively silenced thousands of people, who could have sued for millions, and got the real criminals of 9-11 largely off the hook.

"It's a shut-up fund," said Ellen Mariani, who lost her husband, Neil, on United Airlines Flight 175. Mariani refused to accept money from the compensation fund and was the first 9-11 relative to file a lawsuit for the wrongful death of a loved one.

Mariani wants answers, and believed a lawsuit was the only way to get them. She has been through a series of lawyers and an unbelievably difficult and tortuous process.

"I want to know everything," Mariani said. In particular she wants to know how the five terrorists got aboard United Flight 175. This is the key question about 9-11 that goes straight to the culpability of Israeli-owned Huntleigh USA, which handled passenger screening and pre-flight security at Boston's Logan Airport and other airports involved on 9-11.

But why is Huntleigh USA, an Israeli-owned passenger screening company being protected by Judge Hellerstein? Why are the convicted Israeli criminals like Menachem Atzmon, a political crony of Ehud Olmert, and the corrupt intelligence officers who own Huntleigh not made to show exactly what they did to protect the passengers on 9-11 and how the Arab hijackers got onto the planes - if indeed they did. Where are the companies video tapes that show the alleged hijackers boarding the planes at Boston and the other airports? Why are Israeli criminals being protected in an American court? To whom is Judge Hellerstein really loyal?


Ellen Mariani was blocked in her attempt to "know everything" about 9-11 and to hold the guilty accountable in a court by the highly unusual position taken by the head of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA) the day after the terror attacks.

Within two days after 9-11, Leo V. Boyle, the president of ATLA, had sent an email message to every one of the 60,000 trial lawyers belonging to ATLA urging them to maintain "a moratorium on civil lawsuits that might arise out of these awful events."

For the first time in ATLA's history, the head of the trial lawyers' organization was urging its members and the victims of a disaster not to sue. This was highly unusual for ATLA and for Boyle, a lawyer who had won millions of dollars for his clients through jury trials.

"The association [ATLA] opposes the use of any legal tactics that diminish the right to trial by jury or equal access to courts," Boyle had written in the Arizona Republic -- only two days before 9-11.

Leo V. Boyle, head of ATLA, urged trial lawyers
not to sue on behalf of 9-11 victims.

Yet two days after 9-11, Boyle was taking action to urge ATLA members not to file lawsuits on behalf of the relatives of the thousands of victims who had died in the terror attacks! Boyle's unusual action is clearly contrary to his position that ATLA "opposes the use of any legal tactics that diminish the right to trial by jury or equal access to courts."

Boyle's position as head of ATLA was that the families of the victims of 9-11 should forgo jury trials and accept the "blood money" payout from the government compensation fund.

Many of Motley's clients say they sued not for financial gain, but because they believed litigation would reveal whether government and aviation officials could have anticipated and prevented the events of Sept. 11.

"We did not join this lawsuit or choose to sue for monetary reward," said Carie Lemack, whose mother, Judy Larocque of Framingham, Mass., died on Flight 11, which originated in Boston. The Israeli passenger screening company managed security at Boston's Logan Airport on 9-11. "It was always about accountability and it remains about accountability today, because reforms that are desperately needed are not happening," Lemack told the Boston Globe:

"You only settle when it's appropriate to settle, and if other families felt they needed to settle I can't judge that," said Lemack. "For people who've chosen not to settle, I completely respect their decision and think the judge owes them a trial date. They deserve that. We deserve that."

"All of these cases aren't going to settle," Ronald Motley said. "They are absolutely not going to settle. My clients have a right to decide to end this, and as long as I've got a client who says, `I don't want their blood money; I want accountability through a jury verdict,' no force on earth can change that."

Motley, who had not handled an aviation case before Sept. 11, is critical of what he describes as "the cozy relationship between plaintiff lawyers and defense lawyers that exists in the aviation bar after decades of inbred litigating."

Other firms, Motley said, have settled 9-11 cases for "magnitudes less" than their clients deserved. "There was an extraordinary system breakdown and an extraordinary failure of aviation security," he added, "so they ought to have to pay the maximal damages, not the minimal."

Hellerstein is remembered for saying that money was the "universal lubricant" for grieving 9-11 relatives. "Money is the universal lubricant," Hellerstein said during a pre-trial conference on June 25, 2007. Hellerstein urged the lawyers and the remaining families to take the "most efficient" way, meaning settle for the money and "get on" with their lives:

I learned long ago as a lawyer that many cases of principle stop being cases of principle when there are elements of expense or recovery that are presented.

I have had clients come to me and say look, I want you to defend me, it is a case of principle. Then when I presented my first bill, it stopped being a case of principle. I think it is common experience.

Similarly on the other side, people say I don't care what the recovery is, I want my day in court until someone gives them a check.

It is very crass and it probably will come back to be critical of me, but there is an expression that is sometimes very useful, "Money is the universal lubricant." It makes it easier to go on with one's life.

Out of the mundane, you can fashion something that makes a great deal of sense. We are coming on six years from the terrible event of September 11th, 2001. The public life is 4 score and 10, if it is correct. There is a great value in living out those years that God has allotted to each of us in a way that is most productive for the individual and for society.

What happened on September 11th, 2001 is now a memory with different degrees of pain for different people, for some degree of pain for each and every American and perhaps beyond the United States of America. Each of us has a choice either to never forget that pain and have it ever present in our lives or to fashion a life beyond the pain. If one looks at the issue in that way -- and I suggest that it is the only way to look at it -- the question then becomes what's the fairest, the most efficient, what is the best way to get on with the rest of our lives.


Judge Hellerstein, who is urging the 9-11 relatives to "take the money" and "get on" with their lives, happens to be a very dedicated supporter of Israel. This devotee of Zion is the sole judge managing the historic 9-11 litigation in which one of the key defendants, International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS), is an Israeli company tied to Israeli military intelligence.

ICTS owns Huntleigh USA, the passenger screening company that allegedly allowed the 19 hijackers to board the planes on the morning of 9-11. (There are, of course, questions of whether these Arab hijackers were even on the planes.) The mainstream media has consistently ignored Hellerstein's ties to Israel, but because of the importance of the 9-11 litigation, these connections simply cannot be ignored.

Hellerstein's son, Joseph Z. Hellerstein, lives on a street called Yosef (No. 18) in Buchman, the "nicest part" of the newly-built and exclusively Jewish (100 percent) ghetto fortress of Modi'in, an illegal settlement built on Palestinian land. The younger Hellerstein, a Hebrew-speaking lawyer, moved to Israel in 2001 with his wife and children.

Modi'in is a new settlement block built on the West Bank.
The Jews that live in this ghetto fortress see themselves as the new Maccabees. Judge Alvin Hellerstein's son is one of them.

Joe Hellerstein works for the Tel Aviv law firm of Amit, Pollak, Matalon & Co. (APM). Modi'in is an orthodox religious community where "Joey" Hellerstein is an ardent student of the racist and anti-Christian Talmud. He even writes about his Talmud study for the local newspaper, ModiInfo, which his wife, Daniella, happens to edit.

Joseph Z. Hellerstein (with kippa), the son of Alvin K. Hellerstein, is a Talmudic scholar who has lived in Israel on a Zionist settlement since 2001.


Prior to becoming a federal judge in the Southern District New York, Alvin K. Hellerstein was a partner in the Zionist law firm of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, where he worked for nearly 3 decades, from 1969 to 1998. President Bill Clinton appointed Hellerstein to the federal bench in 1998. 

(Both Alvin Hellerstein and his son Joseph worked for the well known Jewish law firm of Stroock, Stroock & Lavan before moving to the positions they now hold.  Stroock, Stroock & Lavan played a key role in the setting up of 9-11. They represented Silverstein Properties when Larry Silverstein acquired the lease for the World Trade Center in July 2001. See "Judge Hellerstein's Unethical Connection to Key Defendant in 9-11 Lawsuit", May 10, 2010)

(Clinton's key Zionist handler and senior advisor was Rahm Emanuel, an Israeli from Chicago whose father is a retired Irgun terrorist. Emanuel was senior advisor in the Clinton White House from 1993 to 1998. Emanuel joined Bill Clinton's presidential primary campaign in 1991 where he served as Clinton's chief fund-raiser as director of finance. It is very likely that Emanuel played a key role in the Hellerstein appointment.)

Alan M. Stroock, with whom Hellerstein worked for 16 years, was president of the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS), where Michael Chertoff's grandfather, Paul, studied and worked as a "professor" of Talmud after becoming an orthodox rabbi at the JTS in 1911. Stroock's father, Sol, had previously been the chairman of the board of regents of the JTS. Alan Stroock was president of the JTS corporation when Chertoff's Talmud-teaching grandfather died in 1966.

Is it merely a coincidence that the key federal officials involved in the cover up of the truth of 9-11, Michael Chertoff and Alvin K. Hellerstein, are both linked to the Talmudic institution called the Jewish Theological Seminary?

Michael Chertoff is Israel's point man in the 9-11 cover-up and works hand-in-hand with Judge Hellerstein to block discovery that would expose the Israeli role in the false-flag terror attacks. He supervised the FBI's "non-investigation" of 9-11 as Asst. Attorney General in 2001-2002, before becoming secretary of Dept. of Homeland Security, where he continues to prevent discovery through his control over the release of information (SSI).


There are only 5 wrongful death cases remaining of the original 96. These 96 cases represent the families who sought justice (and answers) for the loss of their loved ones through the U.S. court system. These are the 9-11 victims who did not want to accept a one-time government payment for their loss, negotiated by the previous "special master" Kenneth Feinberg, who doled out money from the taxpayer-funded 7 billion dollar September 11 Victim Compensation Fund.

Kenneth Feinberg was the "Special Master" of the $7 billion 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund

Hellerstein, who oversees all 9-11 litigation, holds the position that the public doesn't need to know how the 9-11 victims are being silenced with "blood money" in a legal war of attrition in which the first casualty was the truth of what happened on 9-11.

I called Sheila Birnbaum, the "special master" of the 9-11 litigation, at her office at Skadden Arps on September 2 and asked her how many of the original 96 cases remained to be settled or tried. Birnbaum said there were only 5 wrongful death cases remaining. Asked if it is possible that all the 9-11 cases could be settled without a single case going to trial, Birnbaum said, "It's possible."

I then asked Birnbaum if she thought it was "acceptable" for the book to be closed on the 9-11 victim mass tort litigation without a single case going to trial while the "terror suspects" and "mastermind of 9-11" were being tried in a Soviet-style military gulag in Cuba without ever being brought to court in the United States.

"I will say, like Obama said, that that decision is above my pay level," Birnbaum said. It should be noted that Birnbaum has long been one of the highest paid corporate lawyers in the United States. Forbes magazine reported in May 2001, that Birnbaum, whose practice primarily involves defending large corporations against consumer tort claims, had earned 3.8 million dollars by early 2001.

Birnbaum said she has been involved in settling all of the cases since she became "special master." Asked why the names of the plaintiffs were being kept secret, she said it was out of respect for the privacy of the families.


Who is Kenneth J. Bialkin, Birnbaum's partner at Skadden Arps?

Kenneth Bialkin has served as a director of several Israeli software companies.

He is one of the key Zionist leaders in the United States. He is or has been the chairman of the America-Israel Friendship League, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the American Jewish Historical Society, and the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York. Bialkin is also the U.S. Chairman of the Jerusalem Foundation, a Zionist organization founded by Theodore Kollek, the weapons smuggler who later became mayor of occupied Jerusalem.


These are just some of the positions Bialkin has held to further Zionist efforts. Not all of his positions are included in his Skadden or Who's Who biographical details. His most influential position, for example, is not even mentioned.

When I say that Bialkin is a "key Zionist leader," I do mean key. Bialkin was no less than the head of the very powerful and secretive organization of Jewish Zionist Freemasons, the International Order of B'nai B'rith. In 1979, the Chicago Tribune reported that Bialkin was the Chairman of the National Executive Committee of B'nai B'rith, which it noted had some 500,000 members at the time.

Most likely, Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein is also a high-level member of B'nai B'rith, as, I expect, are Kenneth Feinberg, Michael Mukasey, and Michael Chertoff. (Being an exclusive and highly secretive order of Freemasonry, closed to all non-Jews, it is difficult to say who belongs to this group of Jewish conspirators living in our midst, but it is safe to say that the American Jewish Zionists mentioned above are probably members in good standing of the International Order of B'nai B'rith. The Sulzberger family, for example, the owners of the New York Times, has had several members in the highest positions of Lodge No. 1 in New York City.)

The Tribune article, entitled "Stop pressuring Israel, B'nai B'rith tells Carter," reported that Bialkin had sent a "strongly worded message to President Carter criticizing recent United States policy in the Middle East."

The "strongly worded message" was sent directly to the President. "It's directed principally at him since he is the architect of United States policy," Bialkin said. This is an example of organized Jewish pressure on our elected leaders.

Bialkin is or has been director of several Israeli software companies, notably Technomatic Technologies Ltd., OSHAP, and Sapiens International Corp.NV (based in the Netherlands Antilles, i.e. Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao). He has also represented Maurice Greenberg of AIG. He is also head of the Israeli business at Skadden Arps, which is quite substantial.

I had to make a large chart to diagram the personal and corporate connections while doing research for the latest chapter of Solving 9-11, "The Architecture of Terror: Mapping the Israeli Network Behind 9-11." Kenneth J. Bialkin's name is at the top of this diagram with other senior Zionist gangsters like Henry Kissinger and Maurice Greenberg.

Bialkin is tied to all of the key players in the Israeli network behind 9-11. He is on the board of the Citizens Budget Committee of New York, for example, where Larry Silverstein and Stephen Berger also sit. But far more telling about his role in 9-11 is his crucial role as the lawyer for the Israeli military intelligence companies, such as Amdocs, NICE, and Scitex, who are all discussed in the latest chapter about the Israeli network behind 9-11.

Bialkin is also the President and Chairman of the Board of the America-Israel Friendship League, the organization which connects the highest level of Israeli military intelligence with the Jewish Zionist leadership in the United States. Put simply, Bialkin is the chief of the Zionist criminal gang in the United States.

Kenneth Bialkin with Benjamin Netanyahu,
the leader of the extreme right-wing Likud party,in Israel, February 2007

Bialkin and his partner Birnbaum, and Alvin K. Hellerstein, the federal judge who presides over all 9-11 litigation, are all extremely devoted Zionists, i.e. they are dedicated to the State of Israel. It should be remembered that one of the key defendants in the 9-11 litigation, Huntleigh USA, the passenger screening and airline security firm, is a company wholly owned by an Israeli company run by senior members of Israeli intelligence. Why is this serious conflict of interest issue in the tort litigation related to the crime of the century not discussed in the mass media?

This is the real reason we will not see a "fair and open trial" for the victims of 9-11 seeking justice through the courts. It's the same reason the Soviet-style "trials" in Cuba are being carried out behind closed doors. It's a national disgrace that justice for the victims of 9-11 has been hijacked by high-level Zionists who are devoted to Israel and consider defending "the Jewish State" to be their sacred duty - above serving the cause of justice.

Manchester Bombing: How Israeli Intelligence Steers the War on Terror

May 23, 2017

At the end of Donald Trump's first day in Israel a terrorist bomb killed more than 20 in Manchester, England.

Israeli propaganda agent Rita Katz was quick to inform Western media and intelligence agencies that "ISIS accounts" are "celebrating the attack" in Manchester. This is exactly how Israeli propagandists claimed that Palestinians were celebrating the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11. This is how Israeli intelligence interprets attacks like the bombing to advance the Israeli construct known as the War on Terror. Every aspect of the War on Terror comes from Israeli military intelligence.

The propaganda images provided by the Israeli SITE Intelligence Group are most likely produced in Israel, like most of the propaganda driving the War on Terror.
