A Novato woman was sentenced to nine months in the Marin County Jail yesterday for attempting to abduct her own daughter, in violation of a court order that barred her from seeing the girl.

But Carol Mardeusz was released yesterday after three months in custody, and will be allowed to spend the holidays at home with her family. Marin Superior Court Judge Verna Adams ordered Mardeusz to surrender to authorities on Jan. 11 to begin serving her jail sentence.

The sentencing wrapped up a case that was heavy on courtroom fireworks and spawned a recall effort against two judges and Marin's district attorney. While the recall campaigns against the judges appears to have fizzled, it appears to be likely that District Attorney Paula Kamena will face a recall vote next May.

Mardeusz, 44, stood tearfully before Adams and pledged never again to seek contact with her 10-year-old daughter through unlawful means.

"I thought I was doing the right thing. I'm never going to do anything like that again," she said.

A jury convicted Mar-deusz of four felonies - two counts of attempted child abduction and two counts of perjury - after a three-week trial in July that revolved around her attempt to take custody of her daughter by serving papers on officials at the girl's school. The custody papers were later deemed to have been obtained unlawfully.

Fireworks erupted during the trial when a lawyer for Mardeusz, Patricia Barry, told Adams she "sold her soul to the devil," and uttered the words, "what a whore," when Adams made comments critical of Mardeusz' testimony before the jury.

Adams found Barry in contempt of court and placed her into the custody of Marin sheriff's deputies in a court holding cell at one point during the trial. The California Supreme Court later upheld the contempt order and $2,700 in fines levied against Barry.

Marin Superior Court Judge Michael Dufficy testified at the trial that he signed a temporary order granting Mardeusz custody of the daughter because Mar-deusz led him to believe she had been granted custody of the girl by a Sonoma County judge. Dufficy said he rescinded the order a day later when he learned the defendant's claims were not true, and that sole custody of the girl had been granted to the father after an ugly court battle that included accusations of drug use and child abuse.

The Sonoma County judge in 1998 had barred Mardeusz from seeing the girl because Mardeusz refused to comply with the court's order that she undergo a mental evaluation.

Mardeusz did undergo such an evaluation earlier this year, after being ordered to do so by Adams following the guilty verdicts. Mardeusz spent 90 days at a women's prison in Central California, where she met regularly with psychologists. Adams said yesterday that a report issued by prison psychologists found that Mardeusz suffered from a "delusional disorder."

The report also recommended that she not be sent to state prison as punishment in the case, Adams said.

The attorney for Mardeusz, Nedra Ruiz, said her client plans on reviving the Sonoma County case in hopes she will be allowed to resume contact with her daughter.

The girl was not present during any of the court proceedings. Her father, Leo Magers of Rohnert Park, stormed from the courtroom after yesterday's sentencing and declined to talk to reporters.

Mardeusz was released from the jail yesterday afternoon and was greeted by a contingent of supporters that had followed her case closely. She refused to answer a reporter's questions about the case.

The case was cited on petitions seeking support for a special election to recall Adams, Judge Terrence Boren and District Attorney Paula Kamena.

The effort to recall Kamena appears to be headed for the ballot, after more than 20,000 signatures supporting the recall vote were presented to county elections officials last week.

But recall supporters failed to obtain the required number of signatures to place Boren on the same May 2001 ballot. The recall effort against Adams is ongoing, but petitioners said last week that they had stopped collecting signatures in a dispute with the county over the number of signatures required to force a vote.


No Thanksgiving - Day of Sorrow
by Thomas Mountain © 2000


As most Americans are sitting down to eat that once noble native bird, the turkey, a growing number of us are observing a No Thanksgiving/ Day of Sorrow to reflect on the genocide committed against the American Indians.
 
Eating the once noble turkey,  nominated by that one intellectual giant amongst the founders of the USA, Benjamin Franklin, to be our national bird, has come to symbolize much of what is wrong about celebrating this bogus holiday.

The original turkey was a wily, respected bird, the successful stalking of which marked one as a skilled hunter. The bird that most Americans will be stuffing themselves with this Thursday is raised in cages, being fed increasing amounts of genetically engineered grain, laced with antibiotics. It is so hyper-inbred, the male¹s breast is so large females must be artificially inseminated. It would seem being to fat to have sex has now become another addition to the American tradition.

While the historical myth of American Indians peaceably sharing their turkey dinner with  the white settlers on Thanksgiving is still taught as fact to our children, a review of the historical record shows no reference to this event ever happening.

Benjamin Franklin and the Founding Fathers of America didn¹t celebrate this holiday. In fact, the Thanksgiving holiday was a public relations gimmick dreamed up by that corporate lawyer turned politician, Abraham Lincoln, during the darkest days of the Civil War in an attempt to win support for an increasingly unpopular war.

No, during Benjamin Franklin¹s time, the white settlers were to busy actually dealing with a militant, armed, united, well led and organized League of the Iroquois to be bothered pretending they were friends. One needs to look no further than the so called "Prince Phillips War" in the middle of the 18th century to find some of the most horrendous massacres, nay, genocide, committed against the "savage" Indian by the "god fearing Christians", hardly the environment for celebrating holidays about friendly
get togethers. 

Yet the nation empire founded by the legendary Hiawatha , the League of the Iroquois, occupied a considerable portion of Benjamin Franklin scholarly attention in his earlier years.  As a printer Franklin was in charge of the correspondence between the League of the Iroquois and the colonialists. He became such an authority on the American Indian that he was appointed to his first diplomatic post as Commissioner of Indian Affairs  and acted as Ambassador to the League of the Iroquois for the colony of Pennsylvania. Addressing the Albany Congress in 1754, Franklin called on the delegates from the English colonies to unite along the lines of the League of the Iroquois, something they were not to do until 30 years later.

Benjamin Franklin was also the author of the original, draft constitution of what would become the first "democracy" in the western world, the USA. When looking for models for Franklins new "democracy" in European society, you find little in over two thousand years of European history,  having to go all the way back to the Roman and earlier Greek city states. 

Yet if you look at Franklins neighbors, the League of the Iroquois, and their constitution, you find remarkable similarities with what Franklin envisioned in his Constitution. What is this I am saying, that these "savage red skins" ran their society "democratically"? That these supposed "barbarians", who oversaw an empire that stretched from New England to the Mississippi River, may have been the model for the first "democracy" in the western world? This is something I doubt most Americans have even
considered.

The League of the Iroquois was composed of nation "states" which had jurisdiction over affairs in that "state" only. Each "state" had its own elected legislature, which, as in Franklins Constitution, chose a number of "electors" to the "federal" League of the Iroquois. These "electors" were accorded to each "state"  based on the individual "states" population. The "electors"  met regularly in a sacred hall for their deliberations. This "grand council" (the name Franklin used in the original draft of the Constitution for what came to be the Congress of the USA) was unicameral, as was Franklins original white settler "council", later Congress, of the former English colonies.

This Grand Council of the League of the Iroquois declared war and negotiated peace treaties, sent and received ambassadors, decided on new members joining the League and in general acted as a "federal" government whose decisions superseded those of the "states" in affairs of the "nation".    As in Franklin¹s Constitution, in the League of the Iroquois, the electors could not be serving in the military  while holding office. In both cases, an electorate chose the electors and could recall their choice at
anytime. One of the main differences between the two "democracies" was that in the League of the Iroquois, the electors were reserved for men BUT ELECTED BY THE WOMEN. Thats right, in the League of the Iroquois the women elected the leadership, something much more "democratic" than the actual minority of men who got to vote in the USA.

Franklin's protege, Thomas Jefferson, who wrote the final draft of the Constitution, was also a student of the American Indian. Jefferson was the first person to propose a systematic ethnological study of the American Indian so as to "collect their traditions, laws, customs, languages and other circumstances".

Yet the founding fathers of the USA displayed a savagery in destroying the League of the Iroquois as well as that other American Indian "democracy", the Creek Confederation that shocked even some of their peers. 

That  genocide, both good and ill intentioned, was carried out by Europeans against the American Indians is an undeniable fact. The question we must ask is "why did this happen?".

During the period of the most active genocide against American Indians, Slavery was King in America. And as long as Africans in slavery had a place to escape to, as well as base to launch retaliation from, no slave owner was safe. The threat represented by Indian/African unity resulted in the ruthless attacks on the League of the Iroquois, the Creek Confederation, and finally, the so called "Seminole Wars" of the early 19th century.

Seminole is a Spanish corruption of an Indian word for "runaway" or "renegade". The "Seminole Indians" were a mixture of escaped Africans and American Indians, mainly remnants of the Creek Confederation who had escaped to the Florida Everglades. The Seminoles fought the longest most expensive war in American history until that point.  Their defeat followed by the "Trail of Tears" death march, ended the last major resistance by American Indians east of the Mississippi River, and secured the institution of slavery in the south. Slavery was King and The Only Good Indian was a Dead Indian became the slogan for much of what was policy in the USA.

With this in mind, and with "Thanksgiving" once again upon us, it behooves all Americans of good will to take the time to reflect on our real history, to teach this to our children, and to stop "celebrating" this mythical holiday that represents so dark a period in the history of this country. Leave that poor turkey in peace, and join with us in observing a "No Thanksgiving/ Day of Sorrow".

Author links Bush family to Nazis
STAFF REPORT

The president of the Florida Holocaust Museum said Saturday that George W.  Bush's grandfather derived a portion of his personal fortune through his  affiliation with a Nazi-controlled bank.

John Loftus, a former prosecutor in the Justice Department's Nazi War Crimes  Unit, said his research found that Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, was a  principal in the Union Banking Corp. in Manhattan in the late 1930s and the  1940s.

Leading Nazi industrialists secretly owned the bank at that time, Loftus  said, and were moving money into it through a second bank in Holland even  after the United States declared war on Germany. The bank was liquidated in  1951, Loftus said, and Bush's grandfather and great-grandfather received $1.5  million from the bank as part of that dissolution.

"That's where the Bush family fortune came from: It came from the Third  Reich," Loftus said.

Loftus made his remarks during a speech as part of the Sarasota Reading  Festival. The author of "Unholy Trinity: The Vatican, The Nazis and the Swiss  Banks," Loftus documented the Swiss bank accounts that harbored funds  confiscated from Holocaust victims and the participation of Italian priests  in smuggling Nazi war criminals to safe haven in Canada, Central and South  America and the United States after the war.

Although he said he had a file of paperwork linking the bank and Prescott  Bush to Nazi money, Loftus did not provide that documentation Saturday. 

Loftus pointed out that the Bush family would not be the only American  political dynasty to have ties to the "wrong side of World War II." The  Rockefellers had financial connections to Nazi Germany, he said.

Loftus also reminded his audience that John F. Kennedy's father, an avowed isolationist and former ambassador to Great Britain, profited during the 1930s and '40s from Nazi stocks that he owned.

"No one today blames the Democrats because Jack Kennedy's father bought Nazi
stocks," Loftus said. Still, he said, it is important to understand these  historical connections for what they tell us about politics today. The World  War II experience points out how easy it was then -- and remains today -- to  hide money in multinational funds.

That money flows into American politics today, he said, from "a series of  multinational corporations behaving like pirates. They don't care about  ideology; they care about money."

Loftus' speech left many in tears.

"I am absolutely shocked," said Nancy Krauss of Punta Gorda. "I wish this  would have come out before the election. My husband voted for Bush. I don't  think he would have voted for him if he would have known."

Loftus is a renowned author who has written the best researched book ever on
this and related subjects. Among the classic texts where you can get the  proof are:
[ The Secret War Against the Jews, by John Loftus and Mark Aarons, St.  Martin's Press; Trading with the Enemy by Charles Higham, 1983; The Splendid  Blond Beast: Money Law and Genocide in the Twentieth Century by Christopher  Simpson, 1993; Blowback, by Christopher Simpson, Weidenfeld & Nicolson 1988;  OLD NAZIS, THE NEW RIGHT, AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY by Russ Bellant;  Philadelphia

There are also hundreds of websites with detailed information on this exact
issue the following being just one

Congress held hearings on this in 1942 and seized Prescott Bush's holdings  under the Trading With The Enemy Act. Both Truman and Roosevelt commented on
it.

The Georgia Guidestones - Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 - Target Date 2003

Graphics available at the link.
http://www.rjwhite.com/RJ_Welcome_georgia_guidestones.htm

On one of the highest hilltops in Elberton County, Georgia stands a huge granite monument. Engraved in eight different languages on the four giant stones that support the common capstone are 10 Guides, or commandments. That monument is alternately referred to as The Georgia Guidestones, or the American Stonehenge. Though relatively unknown to most people, it is an important link to the Occult
Hierarchy that dominates the world in which we live.

The origin of that strange monument is shrouded in mystery because no one knows the true identity of the man, or men, who commissioned its construction. All that is known for certain is that in June 1979, a well-dressed, articulate stranger visited the office of the Elberton Granite Finishing Company and announced that he wanted to build an edifice to transmit a message to mankind. He identified himself as R. C. Christian, but it soon became apparent that was not his real name. He said that he represented a
group of men who wanted to offer direction to humanity, but to date, almost two decades later, no one knows who R. C. Christian really was, or the names of those he represented. Several things are apparent. The messages engraved on the Georgia Guidestones deal with four major fields: (1) Governance and the establishment of a world government, (2) Population and reproduction control, (3) The environment and man's relationship to nature, and (4) Spirituality.

In the public library in Elberton, I found a book written by the man who called himself R.C. Christian. I discovered that the monument he commissioned had been erected in recognition of Thomas Paine and the occult philosophy he espoused. Indeed, the Georgia Guidestones are used for occult ceremonies and mystic celebrations to this very day. Tragically, only one religious leader in the area had the courage to speak out against the American Stonehenge, and he has recently relocated his ministry.


THE MESSAGE OF THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES
 

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9.  Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite.
10. Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature.

Limiting the population of the earth to 500 million will require the extermination of nine-tenths of the world's people. The American Stonehenge's reference to establishing a world court foreshadows the current move to create an International Criminal Court and a world government. The Guidestones' emphasis on preserving nature anticipates the environmental movement of the 1990s, and the reference to "seeking harmony with the infinite" reflects the current effort to replace Judeo-Christian beliefs with a new spirituality.

The message of the American Stonehenge also foreshadowed the current drive for Sustainable Development. Any time you hear the phrase "Sustainable Development" used, you should substitute the term "socialism" to be able to understand what is intended. Later in this syllabus you will read the full text of the Earth Charter which was compiled under the direction of Mikhail Gorbachev and Maurice Strong. In that document you will find an emphasis on the same basic issues: control of reproduction, world governance, the importance of nature and the environment, and a new spirituality. The similarity between the ideas engraved on the Georgia Guidestones and those espoused in the Earth Charter reflect the common origins of both.

Yoko Ono, the widow of John Lennon, was recently quoted as referring to the American Stonehenge, saying:

"I want people to know about the stones ... We're headed toward a world where we might blow ourselves up and maybe the globe will not exist ... it's a nice time to reaffirm ourselves, knowing all the beautiful things that are in this country and the Georgia
Stones symbolize that. " (1)

What is the true significance of the American Stonehenge, and why is its covert message important? Because it confirms the fact that there was a covert group intent on:

(1) Dramatically reducing the population of the world.
(From 6 billion to 1/2 billion)
(2) Promoting environmentalism.
(Eliminating personal freedoms & increasing oppressive taxes)
(3) Establishing a world government.
(One plantation.  Guess who plows?)
(4) Promoting a new spirituality.
(Mandating humanism over creationism)

Certainly the group that commissioned the Georgia Guidestones is one of many similar groups working together toward a New World Order, a new world economic system, and a new world spirituality. Behind those groups, however, are dark spiritual forces. Without understanding the nature of those dark forces it is impossible to understand the unfolding of world events.

The fact that most Americans have never heard of the Georgia Guidestones or their message to humanity reflects the degree of control that exists today over what the American people think. We ignore that message at our peril.

The Age of Reason was a book written by Thomas Paine. Its intent was to destroy the Judeo-Christian beliefs upon which our Republic was founded.

The hole that you see in the stone was drilled in the Center Stone so that the North Star could be visualized through it at any moment. This was one of several requirements stipulated by R.C.Christian for the building of the American Stonehenge and reflects hi
s obsession with the alignment of the stars, the sun, and the moon. Occultists often worship the alignment and movement of heavenly bodies as part of their religious ceremonies.

1. Bilderberg's Magic Wand of Power
-----------------------------------
posted at http://www.bilderberg.org/bilder.htm#wand

Bilderberg, according to rumour, has an uncanny knack of inviting people who later reach very powerful public positions. Surely another one of those unprovable allegations, that the most powerful people in the world are selected or 'interviewed' for supposedly democraticly elected jobs, including heads of state, at Bilderberg.

Hard evidence of anything to do with Bilderberg policy-wise is almost impossible to get hold of. All venues are swept for bugs (not that we were using any at Genval this June!) and minutes of the steering group are definitely not publicly available.

Nevertheless... circumstancial evidence suggests Bilderberg really do have a magic wand. Take a look at the list of important career moves for the following democratic appointments:

Bill Clinton - Head of State - USA
Attends Bilderberg meeting, Germany, 1991 - gets Presidential Nomination
Aug 1992

Tony Blair - Head of State - UK
Attends Bilderberg meeting, Greece, 1993 - becomes party leader Jul 1994 -
becomes Prime Minister May 1997

Jack Santer - Head of State (sacked for corruption) - Europe
Attends Bilderberg, Germany, 1991 - becomes European President Jan 1995

Romano Prodi - present Head of State - Europe
On Bilderberg Steering Committee mid 1980's, attends Bilderberg meeting,
Portugal, Jun 1999 - sworn in as President of Europe Sep 1999 (term lasts
until Jan 2005)

George Robertson - CEO - NATO
Attends Bilderberg meeting, Scotland, 1998 - sworn in as Secretary General
of NATO Aug 1999

A remarkable series of coincidences.

Why not see if your favourite head of state went to Bilderberg a year or two before an important success in his or her career? Why not search the attendance lists on the Bilderberg meeting pages? http://www.bilderberg.org/1999.htm is a good place to start.

I have not dug deep for this information, a few minutes on the internet is enough to put two and two together here. They, how you say, take the piss! Bon chance!

Do please let me know if you find other Heads of State in the good old free western world world that got one of those magical Bilderberg invites, before they hit the big time.

cheers, Tony

btw - The President of the European Commission is the unelected President of Europe. For those of you that haven't been told yet the European Commission is an unelected cabinet government for a corporate controlled European superstate. This apparatus is looking decidedly fascist in its unaccountable top-down structure with policy being 'suggested' to the Commission by the European Round Table of Industrialists, a group the current Bilderberg Chairman Etienne Davignon helped found. It really is a small world.

Even MEP's will tell you their role is merely to rubber stamp directives issued by the Commission. It is verging on the critical that treaties are not signed and what admittedly imperfect national sovereignty we have left is not ceeded to such an organisation which is being given increasing power without proper accountability.

Democratic Europe yes, Corporate European Superstate no thanks very much.

EU tries to take control of trade negotiations
posted at  http://www.bilderberg.org/2000.htm

The talks going on in the European Union, under the heading of the Inter Governmental Conference (IGC) have attracted some attention in the mainstream media, but this has centred on issues such as the expansion to the East.  Little has been said about a far more important issue, the proposed changes to the EU treaty which would mean the European Commission taking over sole charge of trade negotiations. The following letter from Caroline Lucas MEP to the Financial Times explains it.

Dear Sir

The battle over the extension of Qualified Majority Voting, highlighted in your article on the outcome of the informal Biarritz summit (France to issue guide for Nice talks, 16 October 2000), is also at the heart of a further highly controversial battle over who controls EU policies on investment, and on trade in services and intellectual property.

Changes are currently being proposed to Article 133 of the Amsterdam Treaty that would place all international trade issues under EU authority, with individual countries no longer being able to veto proposals.

Such an expansion of the Commission's powers would be a further step away from democratic control over key policy areas.   The power of national veto has long been a safeguard against the Commission's over-zealous deregulation ambitions.  In recent years, for example, it has successfully halted misguided ventures such as Commissioner Brittan's proposal for a EU-US free trade zone by 2010, as well as plans for a Multilateral Agreement on Investment, both of which were vetoed by France.

Far from being a piece of simple "modernisation", as Commissioner Pascal Lamy would have us believe, these latest proposals demonstrate a worrying trend towards the establishment of a US-like "fast track" negotiating mandate for the European Commission in the World Trade Organisation.  

The Commission believes that, without the national veto, decision-making can be speeded up significantly - and naively hopes it could be a way of avoiding the increasing backlash to trade and investment liberalisation. However, what we need is more democracy in this headlong rush to greater globalisation, not less.   Unless the unelected Commission wants Nice to be the natural successor to Seattle and Prague, it should drop these highly undemocratic and damaging proposals now.

Yours sincerely

Dr Caroline Lucas MEP, Green Party Member, Trade Committee, European
Parliament

GATS: The new threat

We are on the verge of a breakthrough in public awareness of globalisation, and this is coming just in time, because now the negotiations on services at the WTO have been speeded up, and threaten to bring in many of the aspects of the Multinational Agreement on Investment. 

According to Robert Vastine of the Coalition of Service Industries (the US based lobby group representing services which has been aggressively lobbying for liberalisation of services, with one of its main targets the entry of US firms into European health care!) we are where we were if the Seattle Ministerial meeting of the WTO last year had succeeded in launching a new round of comprehensive trade liberalisation negotiations.  Services negotiations are being seen as the way for the WTO to restore its credibility after the battering it took at Seattle; both the European Commission and the US want to see services liberalisation, in contrast to agriculture (the other main area of current negotiations at the WTO) where arguments over the subsidies to EU farmers under the Common Agricultural Policy make progress less likely.

GATS threatens public services

It is intended to lead ultimately to the commercialisation of all public services,  throughout the world; public funding is a 'trade distorting subsidy' which must be removed by successive re-negotiations of the GATS. And as with Thatcher's government in the 1980s, Blair is now leading the way, with everything from hospitals to prisons to schools being brought under private control, using a variety of methods, from the Public Private Partnerships which are being used to build new schools, prisons, hospitals, waste incinerators etc, to straightforward privatisation of existing prisons, and transfers of council housing stock.  The House of Lords have just voted against the privatisation of Air Traffic Control, which was not in Labour's manifesto, and is not needed for raising public funds.  No other country in the world has privatised its Air Traffic Control system, so why is New Labour doing it now?

GATS threatens ALL government regulations

Commercialisation of public services is not the only threat from the GATS. ALL government regulations, at every level of government, even if they do not discrimate between domestic and foreign firms, could be subjected to a test of 'necessity'.  This would mean they had to be necessary to fulfill an objective the WTO regarded as legitimate, and also that this objective could not be achieved by a measure which was less restrictive of trade. This is a gross intrusion into democratic decision making.

Resources

The World Development Movement are preparing a briefing on GATS, they have also prepared some leaflets on Global Trade Rules in the form of 'cheque books', and a briefing on Debt and Trade ('The Missing Link').  You can obtain them by phoning them free on 0800 328 2153.

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives have just published an excellent book on GATS, by Scott Sinclair.  You can order it over the internet or read a summary at http://www.policyalternatives.ca/  or contact them at Suite 410, 75 Albert St, Ottawa, ON, K1P 5E7, Canada, tel 001-613-563-1341, fax 001-613-233-1458.  Although written mainly for Canadians, it is also applicable to the rest of the world, since GATS is a global agreement.

Caroline Lucas wrote a report 'Watchful in Seattle' about a year ago, which contains a lot of information on the threats from GATS to public services, and much of it remains relevant today.

PEPIS #24 - 22Nov00 - The Magic Wand of Power


THE ISRAELI ARMY CAN'T WIN by Barry Chamish

On Wednesday evening, the Yesha Council will hold a mass rally in downtown Jerusalem under the slogan, "Let The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) Win." It's not just an empty slogan, devoid of anything but jingoism, it is also wrong. The IDF can't win because it doesn't want to. But the Yesha Council is far too shallow to understand why.

Two weeks ago, one of the most decorated officers in the history of the IDF visited my home. He wanted the full story of the Rabin assassination and wanted to understand why the IDF was acting in such a cowardly and inefficient manner. He said he was representing a group of officers who demanded answers immediately.

First, I gave him my Rabin murder evidence, which he understood without me having to repeat a point twice. He knew, without question, that Shimon Peres had to have been the organizer of the murder based on what he had seen. It didn't take long for him to grasp that Rabin was desperately trying to get out of the "peace" process and that was the primary motive for his murder. And he concluded on the spot that the Israeli media were actively cooperating in the coverup by creating a false Rabin, one who died at the hands of anti-peace inciters.

And because of that manufactured stigma, the Yesha Council has chosen a non-inflammatory, meaningless slogan. They do not want to be branded "inciters" by utilizing such words as "traitors," or phrases like, "Put The Oslo Criminals On Trial." That, they concluded, after a successful five year media brainwashing, could lead to another political assassination. So the Yesha Council organizers are misleading their followers and allowing them to take the unwarranted blame for Rabin's murder. And that permits Peres and his Shabak partners in murder, to control the high moral ground.

Meanwhile, Israel is aflame and hasn't got long to live.

My visitor noted that the IDF officers who had advanced the farthest, were the most incompetent. And he had witnessed these men in action. "Rabin," he recalled, "was a disaster in the field but he was an excellent administrator who built a superb fighting force. But people like Lipkin-Shahak and Barak were cowardly in battle and rotten administrators. Why were they the ones chosen to force this peace with the PLO on us?"

I took a chance and gave him the full global picture. I began easy with Prof. Uri Milshtein's books on the history of the IDF, proving that from the beginning, the worst, most scandal-ridden officers were advanced and later entered high politics, while it was the most courageous men who remained enmired in the middle ranks.

Then I gave him the deep story and he understood it as quickly as he caught on to the real Rabin assassination. It begins early in the century when some really nasty British and American robber barons were informed of the vast oil wealth beneath the sands of the Middle East. British Petroleum and the Rothschild family felt a Jewish state loyal to Britain would be a stable base to ensure control of the region. A major motivation for World War One was Britain's desire to take over the richest oil fields and for that purpose, diverted over a million badly needed troops from the European front, to drive the Ottomans  out of the land.

So the British, with the great help of their provocateur T.E. Lawrence, armed two Arabian tribes to oust another ally, the Hussein clan from the oil-rich lands of Arabia, and as a sop, moved the Husseins north to Jordan and Iraq to rule foreign, artificially-created nations. Thus, the British won control of the Saudi oil fields through their puppets, the Ibn Saud and Wahabi tribes.

But back in America, a few really nasty families, notably the Rockefellers but later the Bushes, wanted the oil just as badly. So they used their wealth to arm and bribe tribes on the Persian Gulf and thus created their own kingdoms with their personal choice of royalty. While Rockefeller's Standard Oil took control of the Gulf's riches, they spread the wealth to their equally nasty allies, like the Bushes, who created the Kuwaiti oil industry for the Al Sabah tribe.

The British and Rockefeller clan both understood that to maintain control and vastly increase the value of their properties, they needed a powerful political organization behind them. So in 1911, two British imperialists, Cecil Rhodes and Lord Milner founded their Round Table, which by 1920, became the Royal Institute For International Affairs, to protect Anglo Saxon interests. Two years later, the Rockefellers pooled their money with that of the J.P. Morgans and founded the Council On Foreign Relations (CFR) for the same purposes, which included the ultimate formation of a one world government run by, guess who, themselves. To promote their cause, they placed their well-paid, unscrupulous adherents in the top levels of government, academia and the media.

The British ruled Palestine the same way they maintained control throughout the empire. They chose the least ethical quislings to run the colonial governments, beginning with David Ben Gurion and Chaim Weizmann. Both did the dirtiest work for the British, including rounding up and imprisoning those Jews who had figured out what was going on, the most famous being Menachem Begin. So with Rothschild money and British support, a Jewish state was aborning.

However, in the early 1930s, the Round Table/CFR  Arab puppets began rebelling against the Jews in their midst and they now had the muscle to influence their masters. You see, the Rockefellers were avoiding paying American taxes by a quirky law they arranged, which replaced American taxes with "allotments" paid to their corrupted oil sheikhs. While Standard Oil was ripping off Americans at the gas lines and funneling billions into its CFR, the sheikhs had the power to blow the whistle on them and end the scam.

Well aware of their precarious position, the Round Table/CFR gang tried to put an end to the emerging Israel by cutting off immigration. The plan was working well, thanks to the cooperation of Ben Gurion at the beginning, but even he woke up to the fact that his bosses were betraying him. And he finally, almost too late, joined in the rebellion against the British, as far as he could go without endangering his own existence. It was a delicate balancing act. He gave as much as he could, which will turn out to be too much, while trying to preserve his nation.

The end of World War 2 brought worldwide guilt-ridden support for the new state of Israel, as well as a doubling of its population. The Arabs felt betrayed and unsuccessfully attacked Israel. After the first failure, the Royal Institute/CFR diplomats promised their sheikhs that they would wear Israel down until it disappeared.

The first step was the corruption of the IDF. Ben Gurion was ordered to advance his weakest officers and prepare them for public service. He realized the longterm plan and as usual, compromised. Thus utterly inappropriate officers like the unabashed antiquities thief Moshe Dayan and Yitzhak Rabin, the shooter of the helpless men swimming away from the burning ship, the Altalena, rose to the highest military and political ranks and once there, appointed the same kind of weaklings to further high posts.

These men owed their power to the CFR, which continued to finance and groom their rising careers. It is no different with Ehud Barak, Ariel Sharon, Amnon Lipkin-Shahak et al. They were all bought and have debts to repay the CFR. Rabin bravely reneged on his debts and was murdered for it. Barak knows he has to play ball by their rules or he will suffer the same fate.

So he will never let the IDF win and the Yesha Council is deluding its followers.

However, something new is happening in Israel; the middle-level officers are beginning to grumble and plot. I lecture several times a week and at the end of each evening, there are always people with inside information who want to talk to me. One IDF officer told me, "We all know what has to be done. The PA has to be utterly cut off; no power, fuel, food or anything let in until they turn their guns over to us. The world will be riled up to condemn us no matter what we do and its either an embargo or near carpet bombing. Barak has chosen to avenge brutal murders with rocket attacks on empty buildings. That strategy will bleed us to death. If he doesn't act, there may be a rebellion from the middle in the IDF."

And still, believing the IDF is too loyal to rebel, Barak will not upset his masters by actually defending his country. So the Yesha Council is wasting its breath and everybody's time.

If its members really want to preserve their own existences and that of the Jewish State, they would be far better off organizing a massive rally to reinvestigate the Rabin murder. That would be worth a million of their current fruitless demonstrations.
