|Order Out Of Chaos: The Doctrine That Runs The World
"From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire."
- Winston Churchill, February 1920, in an article that appeared in the Illustrated Sunday Herald
The concept of conspiracy frightens some people, so much so that they are willing to overlook any and all evidence that world events are for the most part directed, rather than chaotic and coincidental. For those who are uneducated and unaware, explanations for the terrible tides of politics and war generally revolve around a false understanding of Occam's razor. They argue that the theory states that the "simplest explanation" is usually the correct one for any particular problem or crisis. But Occam's razor actually states that the simplest explanation according to the evidence at hand is usually the correct answer for any given problem. That is to say, the simplest explanation must conform to the evidence, or it is likely not correct.
Unfortunately, "skeptics" of directed conspiracy often turn a blind eye to evidence that is contrary to their simple explanations, while arguing that simplification is its own vindication. In other words, they don't feel the need to defend their simplistic world view because, in their minds, simplicity stands on its own as self-evident. There was a time when men believed that the planets revolved around each other because they were tied together by long glass strings, and this was evident to them because it was the simplest explanation they could come up with. The thinking of skeptics of the New World Order and concerted globalization is much like this.

|Iron Dome Fake - A Massive Hoax - Missiles Blowing Up in the Air
The Iron Dome Hoax is a rather hard one to understand the reasoning behind and comes to terms with, after all we are told on the nightly news night after night that Hamas missiles are being intercepted by the almost god-like Iron dome system, which intercepts allegedly 90% of the missiles launched toward Israel... Why lie about that?
What proof is there that Iron Dome actually is hitting missiles in the first place? Well, there actually isn't any, the few Hamas missiles actually ever launched (Hamas is a group created by and controlled by the state of Israel) do not in fact even have warheads, and are basically hollow pipes and fireworks as has been proven time and time again.
Well, it turns out the "Iron Dome" interceptor missiles are a similar scam- They are in fact not intercepting anything, but instead are exploding in thin air, making people feel they are intercepting alleged Hamas rockets, when in reality they're essentially billions of dollars worth of American taxpayer money fireworks self-detonating in the air - glorified fireworks as well.
Speculation this was the case has been growing, with a more recent assertion by Israeli Dr. Motti Sheffer saying exactly that- The Iron Dome is a massive lie, which is "intercepting" "simulated rockets" which in reality do not exist.. The Iron Dome rockets are just self-detonating in the air, causing a loud sound, but not intercepting anything.
A group of Israeli skeptics asked the Israeli government to see the thermal imaging proof that the rockets were in fact intercepting other rockets, and they were denied- But why deny them some thermal imaging of the "proof" of Iron dome? There is no reason to withhold said proof, which is further evidence that there are no "Hamas rockets" being intercepted by Iron Dome, and Iron Dome is just a fireworks system.
The only "Hamas Rockets" that ever make it into Israel which we are shown are essentially smoke bombs, and the rest are hollow metal tubes, that's hardly anything to get worried about. There don't appear to be any warheads, and there is no visible damage in Israel at all from these supposed "Hamas Rocket attacks" which in reality don't contain warheads.
But why? Why would Israel do this? Well, the answer is obvious:
The reason for the fake Hamas "missile attacks" and the phony Iron dome system is to keep the Israeli population in fear and thinking their is a legitimate attack on their lives (when no such threat actually exists) it is to make them hate the Palestinians, and allow the actual ground invasion to take place, which will kill hundreds of thousands eventually- as well as to put in place the "no go zone" which essentially eliminates half of Gaza to residential habitation.
It is also to guarantee billions of dollars of US funding "protecting Israel", and to make the American people feel Israel is in fact under attack, and to make the American people the money we are sending them (the Israelis) to protect themselves from the non-existent Hamas rocket threat is being well spent.
Who needs billions of dollars for road repairs, health care, or just tax rebates in the US.. when we can send that money to Israel?
|Gaza Violence Has Big-Name Acts Cancelling Israel Concerts In Droves
Big name artists have been cancelling their shows and pulling out of festivals in Israel in droves ever since the violence between the Middle Eastern country and Palestine escalated in mid June. While numbers vary and are tough to confirm, promoters on the ground estimate that all told, cancellations have cost the local industry upwards of $20 million.
The cancellations are widespread, with artists from every genre and those that play to every demographic not being able to perform for one reason or another. Bands like the Backstreet Boys, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Cee-Lo Green, Brian Jonestown Massacre, America, Megadeth, Kansas, and even Cirque Du Soleil have all postponed or cancelled their shows, costing promoters and venues millions in unrecoverable revenue
|'This is a humanitarian catastrophe': Former president Jimmy Carter says 'there is no humane or legal justification' for the way Israel has attacked Gaza
Former President Jimmy Carter reprimanded Israel for heavy handed attacks on Gaza today and called for the creation of a Palestinian state.
The one-term U.S. president and former Ireland President Mary Robinson said today in a joint op-ed on ForeignPolicy.com that 'there is no humane or legal justification' for the way Israel has 'pulverized large parts of Gaza, including thousands of homes, schools, and hospitals.'
'This is a humanitarian catastrophe,' the former world leaders wrote, pointing out that more than 250,000 Gaza residents have been displaced from their homes and many others no longer have working water and electricity.

|Crimes against humanity in Gaza: is it really a 'buffer zone' or a bigger plan?
It's time to step back and ask if we want to support Israel if it wants to eject all Palestinians from their land
Late last week, the White House decried Israel's attack on a UN school in Gaza as "totally unacceptable" and "totally indefensible", then proceeded to approve $225m in funding for its Iron Dome. On Monday, the US state department went further, calling the airstrikes upon a UN school "disgraceful" and yet America provides Israel with more than $3.1bn every year, restocking the ability of the Israel Defense Force (IDF) to hit more schools, and to wage total war against an imprisoned people, because of their nationality.
American taxpayers should not be paying for this. And the western world should stop rejecting serious inquiries about Israel's moral inconsistencies, or allow it to benefit from cognitive dissonance and information overload amid the current crisis in Gaza.
There is a land grab going on. The Israeli prime minister, Binjamin Netanyahu, has shrunk Gaza's habitable land mass by 44%, with an edict establishing a 3km (1.8-mile) buffer zone, a "no-go" zone for Palestinians and that's quite significant, because a good part of Gaza is only 3 to 4 miles wide. Over 250,000 Palestinians within this zone must leave their homes, or be bombed. As their territorial space collapses, 1.8m Gazans now living in 147 square miles will be compressed into 82 square miles.
|Pro-Palestinian activists shut down Israeli arms firm
A Staffordshire factory which is owned by an Israeli military company has been shut down by pro-Palestinian activists.
Twelve members of London Palestine Action chained shut the main gates of the factory at around 05:00 BST and then scaled the roof, unfurled a banner and staged an occupation.
The factory operates under the name UAV Engines Limited, a UK registered company owned by Elbit Systems, Israel's largest weapons company.
It is part of a deep level of cooperation between Israel and Britain on drone technology, which is expected to provide the UK's drone equipment into 2040, as well as servicing Israeli military needs.
Amnesty International believes engines from the factory have been used in drones which were used to attack civilians in Gaza during 2008's Operation Cast Lead.
"By allowing this factory to export engines for killer drones to Israel, the UK government is providing direct support and approval to Israel's massacres," one of the occupiers, a teacher from south London said.
|Obama's 'helplessness' an act: Snowden reveals scale of US aid to Israel
The turmoil gripping the Middle East is a direct result of the provision of cash, weapons and surveillance to Israel by the US, the latest Snowden leak illustrates. Obama's "helpless detachment" is just for show, the Intercept's Glenn Greenwald writes.
In a bold examination, the former Guardian journalist reveals the amazing contrast between what the United States says publicly, and what it does behind the curtain. This involves President Barack Obama's apparent heartbreak over the Middle Eastern region, as well as the American love for publicly listing Israel as a threat to regional peace at a time when billions of dollars' worth of its weaponry and intelligence were being supplied to the Jewish state since the 1960s.
Greenwald has published his analysis of the latest leaked Edward Snowden document of April 12, 2013, wherein it's explained just how false the notion that the US is a bystander to the Middle Eastern crisis really is.
|Chris Hedges: Why Israel Lies
All governments lie, as I.F. Stone pointed out, including Israel and Hamas. But Israel engages in the kinds of jaw-dropping lies that characterize despotic and totalitarian regimes. It does not deform the truth; it inverts it. It routinely paints a picture for the outside world that is diametrically opposed to reality. And all of us reporters who have covered the occupied territories have run into Israel's Alice-in-Wonderland narratives, which we dutifully insert into our stories-required under the rules of American journalism-although we know they are untrue.
I saw small boys baited and killed by Israeli soldiers in the Gaza refugee camp of Khan Younis. The soldiers swore at the boys in Arabic over the loudspeakers of their armored jeep. The boys, about 10 years old, then threw stones at an Israeli vehicle and the soldiers opened fire, killing some, wounding others. I was present more than once as Israeli troops drew out and shot Palestinian children in this way. Such incidents, in the Israeli lexicon, become children caught in crossfire. I was in Gaza when F-16 attack jets dropped 1,000-pound iron fragmentation bombs on overcrowded hovels in Gaza City. I saw the corpses of the victims, including children.
|Israel, Genocide, and the 'Logic' of Zionism
History is full of ironies: World War I, marketed to Americans as a "war to end all wars," paved the way for an even more massive slaughter. The invasion and conquest of Iraq which was supposed to augur what George W. Bush hailed as a "global democratic revolution" instead ushered in a new era of chaos, bloodshed, andtyranny in the region. And in the year 2014, the state of Israel, founded in large partas a reaction to the Holocaust, has embarked on a policy of genocide in Gaza.
The Israelis and their international amen corner are increasingly open about this: arecent article in the Times of Israel since taken down was quite explicit in averring that Israel's "right of self-defense" includes the option of wiping out the entire population of Gaza:
|Israeli deceptions and Western collusion
Deceptions revealed in story of "kidnapped" soldier
By Jonathan Cook in Nazareth
A single incident at the weekend the reported capture by Hamas on 1 August of an Israeli soldier through a tunnel illustrated in stark fashion the layers of deception Israel has successfully cast over its attack on Gaza.
On 3 August, as the army indicated it would start limited withdrawals, Israel claimed that the soldier, Hadar Goldin, was dead, possibly buried in a collapsed tunnel as Israel bombarded the area in which he was seized. His family said he was being left behind.
Israeli officials or media did not view Hamas's operation dispassionately. Goldin was not "captured" but "kidnapped" as though he was an innocent seized by opportunistic criminals.
As occurs so often, many Western journalists followed Israel's lead. The front page of the London Times blared: "Kidnapped in Gaza", while the Boston Globe called him the "abducted Israeli soldier".
|We could not mention Israel in any context.
by craig on August 2, 2014 in Uncategorized
There is a concerted media ploy to change the narrative on the massacre of hundreds of women and children in Gaza, on the grounds that it is Hamas' fault for breaking the ceasefire. The Israeli account of the ceasefire breakdown is parroted relentlessly.
I have put some effort into discovering why the ceasefire broke down, including contacting sources in Gaza itself. What is plain is that there were multiple incidents shortly after the ceasefire deadline, of violations by both sides. This is actually normal such ceasefires usually take a few hours to take hold as fighting in hot progress and operations under way get stopped. At leasy eleven Palestinians were killed by shellfire in the first hour after the ceasefire.
The media has however focused solely on a single incident, that which featured missing Israeli Lieutenant Goldin. What appears to have happened here was that the Israelis were continuing with their destruction of tunnels, as the ceasefire provisions allowed. They came across a group of Palestinian fighters sheltered in the tunnels, and not surprisingly the Palestinian fighters did not interpret the ceasefire as meaning the Israelis could kill them but they were precluded from fighting. In the ensuing firefight some on both sides were killed and injured, while Lt. Goldin has disappeared.
Incidentally it is worth noting that my information is that Hamas' statement that the incident was a deliberate ambush, and occurred before the ceasefire, is also untrue.
The Israelis immediately called in massive shellfire and missile attack. It is not improbable Goldin was killed or wounded in the firefight or possibly just hiding and he and his body destroyed by an Israeli shell or missile. It is a sad norm of warfare that sometimes there is no recognisable body.
Why we are supposed to be more concerned about Goldin than about the twenty Palestinian children who have been killed since he vanished, is beyond me. But you see, killing those children is now OK again, because Hamas broke the ceasefire. The media have a nice narrative mapped out for them and boy, are they milking it.|
