Mohamed Khodr’s Column
“I am aware how almost impossible it is in this country to carry out a foreign policy [in the Middle East] not approved by the Jews. [Former Secretary of State George] Marshall and [former Defense Secretary James] Forrestral learned that…. terrific control the Jews have over the news media and the barrage the Jews have built up on congressmen …. I am very much concerned over the fact that the Jewish influence here is completely dominating the scene and making it almost impossible to get congress to do anything they don’t approve of. The Israeli embassy is practically dictating to the congress through influential Jewish people in the country”
Sec. of State John Foster Dulles in Feb. 1957 quoted on p.99 of Fallen Pillars by Donald Neff
“I’ve never seen a president –I don’t care who he is– stand up to them [the Israelis]. It just boggles your mind. They always get what they want….If the American people understood what grip those people have on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens don’t have any idea what goes on.”
Admiral Thomas Moorer of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. (See Washington Report 12/1999, p.124 quoting from Andrew Hurley’s book, “One Nation Under Israel”)
“We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the world – no longer a Government of free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.”
Woodrow Wilson [U.S. President during World War I]
PITY the wonderful, kind, generous, good hearted, peace loving American people as being the only people in the entire world totally unaware of how Israel, a nation whose founding and funding depends on the American taxpayer, so dominates, controls, intimidates, humiliates, and even bites and puts at risk the very lives and hands of the American taxpayers who feed it. While the American people are fiercely proud, independent, and will not submit to any nation or any person who dares stomp on the world’s sole superpower, they do submit willingly and unwillingly to the dictates of a foreign nation, Israel, whose economy and political support is the prime priority of Washington D.C., even at the expense of the needs and lives of the American people themselves.
Inquiring Minds Around the World Want to Know:
Why are the American people so loved and respected around the world for so long (prior to Israel’s founding in 1948) for their freedoms, educational and technological superiority, their friendliness, generosity, and respect for other people’s beliefs and needs, are so naive to the destructive influence of Israel’s “Jewish Power” upon their domestic and foreign policies? Why are they so blind and uninformed despite having the world’s largest and most advanced educational system, the world’s largest media outlets, the ability to travel around the world freely, the world’s largest interdependent economy that sells to every nation on earth, except to Israel where it loses on trade; a nation with more military bases around the world than any other, a nation of immigrants from around the world, a nation in possession of the wondrous law unavailable to most of the world–the “Freedom of Information Act”–whereby a citizen can seek governmental answers on policies, but doesn’t when it comes to foreign policy?
WHY, WHY, WHY?
Why has the world been engulfed in continuous wars and conflicts in the Middle East ever since Israel was founded in 1948? Why did Islam suddenly become America’s enemy immediately after the collapse of Communism in 1991? Why 9/11? Why is Bush so determined against ALL evidence, logic, and against the wishes of the entire world to annihilate Iraq, a nation his father already destroyed, a nation impoverished with sanctions, a nation that’s been bombed continuously for 11 years?
There is a reason why our government and our media are not asking the most important question regarding 9/11—the question of WHY only America was attacked. There is a reason why President Bush has refused for a long time to appoint an Independent Commission to examine 9/11. There is a reason why Congressional inquiry only focused on the failures of the FBI/CIA/NSC and not the WHY issue. There is a reason why no media outlet is independently investigating this issue. There is a reason why our government quickly and quietly kicked out 120 Israeli “spies” out of the country soon after 9/11, some were caught on videotape filming the crash into the WTC towers and dancing on rooftops (see FOXNEWS 3 reports by Cameron , later deleted from the website). Much more incriminating information on Israel’s prior knowledge of the attack has been reported abroad but not here. Why did Israel not inform the United States? There is a reason that Bush appointed Henry Kissinger, a powerful Pro-Israeli Jew to head the Independent Commission but who later resigned rather than reveal his “conflict of interest” nations. The reason is Israel and the answer as to WHY there is new found HATE between the U.S. and the Muslim world is simple:
Despite the fact that most Americans, including our Government understand this truth, America is too fearful to admit that Israel is the barrier between the West and Islam, between perpetual war and peace, and between the interests of the American people and the Pro-Israel politics of our Government too greedy for Jewish money and votes and too cowardly to face the Pro-Israeli Media backlash should they ever so slightly oppose the “Israel First” policy. There is ZERO TOLERANCE in America’s Media for any criticism of Israel. The Political Unemployment line is filled with politicians who fought for America’s cause and independence from Israel and who sought peace in the Holy Land. Among them are former Senators William Fulbright, Charles Percy, Reps. Paul Findley and Cynthia McKinney.
The American Government, Media, Wall Street, Hollywood, and “experts” on television are ensuring through daily bombardment of intimidating sound bytes that the American TAXPAYER, who is the ultimate VICTIM in this charade of 55 years of Israel’s democracy and “special relationship” with the United States, will never know the truth about Israel’s grip on this nation or if he/she does, that they will never have the courage to ever speak out publicly.
THE ANSWER MY FRIEND AS TO WHY MUSLIMS ARE DYING EVERYDAY AND WHY AMERICANS HAVE BEEN KILLED BY ISRAEL (USS Liberty in 1967, Marines in Beirut) and will continue to die around the world for Israel’s interests, not America’s, especially in Israel’s push for America to attack Iraq, and not North Korea, IS BLOWING IN THE WINDS OF “JEWISH POWER”. (See the book: “Jewish Power” by the Jewish American journalist and Editor of the Jewish paper, “FORWARD”)
Powerful Jewish Influence on the western world, especially America, stems from the following foundations:
1. The HOLOCAUST:
The murder of millions of innocent Jews in Europe, not America, was among the many genocidal holocausts in history. Jews were murdered, their properties confiscated, and were scapegoated for their faith and ethnicity. Tragically and ironically, Jews in Israel are propagating the same crimes against innocent Palestinians while once again the world is SILENT, but this time America is providing the money, weapons, and protective Vetoes in the United Nation to directly support Israel’s Jews in their “Palestinian Holocaust”.
2. The Intimidating Power of the Label “ANTI-SEMITISM”:
Anyone who dares criticize Israel’s policies or atrocities against innocent Palestinians or Muslims is publicly tarred and feathered by the Pro-Israel media, and branded for life with the new and improved Scarlet Letter “A” for Anti-Semitism; a career ending silencing weapon that Presidents, Congressmen, Kings, Prime Ministers, Popes, world citizens, and most importantly American citizens fear most.
It’s time to understand the real meaning of “SEMITE” and for world Jewry to get over their psychological and politically motivated paranoia that the entire world, especially the United Nations, genetically and inherently HATES them because they are God’s “Chosen People”. The very idea that God, the loving, merciful, omnipotent Creator of all the universe would have an “exclusive” love and relationship to a small group of people, especially people whose relationship with God is one of continuous rebellion, is beyond divine logic. What does such logic leave for Christians who believe in God’s only son as their personal Savior? Today, the 13 million Jews around the world are the most prosperous and powerful ethnic group in the world. The existence, the military power, wealth, and brutal behavior of Israel toward its neighbors despite world condemnation is a testament to that prosperity.
Definition of Semitic: Semite derives from the name of Noah’s son, Shem, the father of the Semitic-speaking peoples. Semitic refers to LANGUAGES, not a religion or ethnicity. It refers to the Semitic languages of Arabic, Hebrew, Aramaic, Assyrian, Babylonian, Ethiopian and others. It has NOTHING to do with Jews or Judaism. Given that the majority of Jews are neither related to the original Israelites nor speak Hebrew, most therefore are not Semites, while all Arabs are by definition Semites given their Arabic language. SO let’s stop this hypocritical manipulation of Anti-Semitism to silence criticism of Israel.
3. The American MEDIA and HOLLYWOOD:
ALL of the Hollywood Studios were founded by European Jews while most of America’s MEDIA Conglomerates are either owned, controlled, directed, or have a majority of Jewish editors, journalists, or columnists, compared to any other ethnic group. There are Nine Major Media Conglomerates that control most of the world media and almost all are owned or run by Jews. People seem to get a neurological seizure when such factual statements are made but that’s the truth. Even Michael Medved, the known Jewish American film critic asks the question, “So What if Hollywood is Run by Jews?”, so why should anyone else recoil from such statements. Ironically, the most courageous critics of Israel around the world are Jews, but these Jews are pariahs, called “Self Hating Jews” by other Jews, and are denied access to the American media. Even more ironic is that Israeli Jews and the Israeli Media are the harshest critics of Israel and defenders of Palestinian human rights but no such brave Jew exists in America’s media. To Jewish Americans, Israel is their “Wailing Wall” where their money, votes, and protests serve to compensate them for their guilt of not immigrating to Israel and leaving their American wealth. Most Jews around the world are non-religious, in fact almost all the Zionist Jews who founded Israel were non-religious, and many were atheists, Buddhists, or Communists. In fact the majority of the Russian Communists who established the Soviet Union were Jews. NO American who wishes to speak against Israel is allowed to write in the Op-Ed pages of the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal or appear as a talking head on television. If you pay close attention to the “experts” on Israel or Islam on Television you’ll find that they’re almost always American Jews, Israeli’s, or Pro-Israel Christian Zionists like Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Franklin Graham, Bill O’Reilly, Cal Thomas, George Will, Charles Krauthammer and so on. 4. CONGRESS: Out of 100 Senators, 11 are Jewish (that’s 11% despite Jews are only 1.7% of U.S. population). NONE of the Senators are African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, or Muslim Americans. Congress has been correctly called by Former Secretary of State James Baker as the “Little Knesset (Israel’s Parliament)” and by Pat Buchanan as “Israeli Occupied Territory”. No American institution is a better pandering doormat to Israel’s concerns and needs than Congress. (See quotes on Israel’s power on Congress by American statesmen in www.mideastfacts.com)
The ONLY American Group to have a SPECIAL LIASON OFFICE in the White House is American Jews. No other American ethnic, religious, civilian, or military group has such a privileged or special office with an Assistant to the President for Jewish Affairs in the White House, other than American Jews. No group has immediate access to the President on such issues as foreign policy, budget matters, military issues, aid to Israel, or who Israel deems next to be America’s next enemy or a candidate for the all important “Terrorism” list. Saying NO TO ISRAEL automatically puts a person or nation on the “List”
5. RECYCLED JEWISH INFLUENCE:
Influential Pro-Israel Jews are constantly in and out of the U.S. Government in jobs important to Israel such as in the National Security Council (During Clinton’s term, 7 out of the 11 members of the NSC were Jews), the State Department, Pentagon, Ambassadorships and so on. Such “expert” Jews flow with ease between important national security jobs in the Government and Jewish owned or Israeli funded Washington Think Tanks, such as the Washington Institute for Near East Policy or other Conservative Think Tanks such as the Heritage Foundation, American Enterprise Institute, the Cato Institute, the Council of Foreign Relations and others. “Expert” such as: Dennis Ross, Martin Indyk, Steven Grossman, Eliot Abrams, Richard Hass, Paul Wolfowitz, Stuart Eizenstat and so on. For decades American foreign policy positions dealing with the Middle East have always been given to Jewish Americans, such is the “honest broker” policy in the MidEast. It seems there are no other Americans capable of filling such positions. Currently the most powerful Zionists in the government are those who want Americans to die in Iraq for Israel’s sake: Eliot Abrams in charge of MidEast policy at the NSC; Paul Wolfowitz at the Pentagon, and Richard Perle of the Pentagon Advisory Council. Neither the President of the United States, nor his Cabinet, nor the United Nations, nor the European Union, nor Russia (the so-called “Quartet” group for MidEast peace) have any influence in the Middle East not approved by Israel.
6. JEWISH WEALTH:
Roughly 60% of the donations to the Democratic National Committee is from Jewish donors. America’s corrupt campaign financing laws forces candidates to pander to Israel’s supporters for money in exchange for all the billions, weapons, and vetoes at the U.N. Israel wants. Now that Bush’s warpath on Arabs and Muslims pleases Israel, Jewish Americans are supporting Republican candidates and dumping Democrats their historical allies. To Israel and Jewish Americans there is only ONE LITMUS TEST for their Money, Votes, and favorable Media Coverage: WHICH political party supports Israel the most and allows Israel a free hand to drench the soil of peace in the Holy Land with Arab Christian and Muslim blood.
Today it’s President Bush and the Republican Congress. Bush learned from his father’s defeat after Desert Storm four important lessons:
Never Cross American Jews
Never Cross the Religious Right
Showcasing America’s Military Power overseas is popular.
Give Tax Cuts to the Rich, they’ll repay you with enormous Campaign Donations.
Hence Bush’s Economic Plan Addressees these Priorities:
Israel is to get $20 Billion in Free Aid this year to support it’s Economic Recession, Pay for it’s Military Occupation, and provide for Health Care, Housing, and Jobs for its Veterans—–of course while denying needy Americans and Veterans the same budgetary considerations.
Launch War on Islam (estimated to cost $200 Billion or more) to placate the Conservative Religious Right comprising of such Godly Men of Peace as Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Franklin Graham, Hal Lindsey, Jerry Vines, Benny Hinn, James Robison, John Hagee and the rest of the Christian “Tele–tubbie–Evangelists” whose aim is to kill Jews, Muslims, and anyone else to bring back the “Prince of Peace”. Thus their plan for salvation is paved with war, death, and blood.
Bush is cutting deeply into Domestic Programs such as aid for Heating Oil for the Poor, Education, Health Care, Social Security and Medicare, aid to States, while providing large Tax Cuts for the Rich and for the unpatriotic Corporations sheltered overseas to avoid paying taxes and hiring American Union workers.
An Iraq War will provide billions in profits for Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld Oil Companies as well as the Military Industrial Complex where his father, family, and friends enjoy Board Directorship positions. NO such aid came to the millions of Americans who lost everything as a result of lies, fraud, and bankruptcy of Bush supported Corporations such as Enron.
OKAY, YOU WANT PROOF OF MY STATEMENTS. I’m glad. It’s about time we don’t just swallow the official government and media “lies” out of intellectual laziness. Our media acts as if we’re too stupid and lazy to search for the truth for ourselves. They depend on it. I would hope that the readers would have the courage and curiosity to search for such facts themselves. One can start with these websites, some are maintained by courageous compassionate Jews:

www.mideastfacts.com (great comprehensive site on the MidEast);

ONE IMPORTANT PROOF THAT IN AMERICA “JEWS” ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHER AMERICANS IS THE ILLEGAL AND OUTRAGEOUS PUBLIC FUNDING OF THE ‘NATIONAL’ HOLOCAUST MUSEUM:
UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MUSEUM IN WASHINGTON D.C. (Established by the UNANIMOUS passage of Congressional legislation in October 1980 (Public Law 96-388).
Although American Jews were not victims of the Holocaust and it was American soldiers who liberated Jews from Concentration Camps, the U.S. Government in response to Jewish pressure, donated federal land (Illegally) and paid with U.S. Tax dollars (illegally) to construct a PRIVATE Holocaust museum on the venerable American National Mall in Washington D.C. After paying for its construction, Congress annually appropriates the majority of the funds (tax money) for the Museum’s maintenance. In fact, President Bill Clinton on October 13, 2000 signed Legislation Granting this “PRIVATE” Museum “Permanent Federal Status” which permits Congress to fund the museum annually without any question or review.
From the U.S. Holocaust Museum Press Release: October 13, 2000
Washington D.C.:—–President Bill Clinton yesterday signed legislation that establishes permanent status for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, which was created to be the national living memorial to the Holocaust and its victims.
The Museum “serves as a constant and painful reminder that racism, anti-semitism and all forms of hatred are ever-present dangers, and that indifference to hatred makes each of us complicit in some way,” President Clinton said.
The granting of permanent status is significant as an expression of the importance the U.S. government places on the Museum. Permanent status permits Congress to provide funding without having to review the Federal role.
“The presence of permanent authorization for appropriations signifies that America’s national memorial to the victims of the Holocaust is now an integral part of our capital city. It represents our nation’s permanent commitment to never forget past failures of responsibility and to enlist conscience to uphold life and law permanently. Therefore, the memorial stands so appropriately among our greatest monuments to democracy,” says the Chair of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, Rabbi Irving Greenberg.
“Permanent authorization enhances the Museum’s ability to function as one of OUR government’s most successful public-private partnerships,” says the Museum’s Director Sara Bloomfield….. This momentous initiative is another reflection of the strong bipartisan support the Museum enjoys.”
The Museum opened more than seven years ago on land provided by the Federal government, which also contributes towards basic operating costs……The current FY02 budget for the Museum is $55.4 million, with $34.4 million contributed by the federal government and $21.0 million from private contributions.
Congress deems it unworthy to provide public funding to honor America’s Veterans in Washington D.C. for the following Wars and Sacrifices.
World War I Memorial
World War II Memorial (privately funded)
A Korean War Memorial (privately funded)
A Vietnam Memorial (privately funded)
An African-American Slavery Museum
A Native American Holocaust Museum
A Revolutionary War Memorial
A Civil War Memorial
An American Women Armed Services Memorial
A National Pearl Harbor Museum in Washington D.C.
So Why a “Holocaust Museum” and not a publicly funded Memorial for American Veterans?
The answer from one of the most powerful Jewish Americans in Washington D.C., a man no one dares refuse his phone call, not meet with him immediately, or publish his letters or opinion pieces.
Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League (A.D.L.)
On the Frontline, January 1994 p. 2, gives the following answer to this question:
“The Holocaust is something different. It is a singular event. It is not simply one example of genocide but a near successful attempt on the life of God’s chosen children and thus, on God Himself. It is an event that is the antithesis of Creation as recorded in the Bible; and like it’s direct opposite, which is relived weekly with the Sabbath and yearly with Torah, it must be remembered from generation to generation”
Why should the AMERICAN TAXPAYER fund a private Holocaust Museum while America’s own Veterans, men and women who’ve honorably served this country from the Revolutionary War onward have NO publicly funded monument or museum in their honor? This outrageous shame continues while Congressmen compete to provide more funds to Jewish American Museums around the country.
Adding insult to injury they shamefully DENY funding of Veterans issues such as health care, pensions, disabilities, and retirement compensation.
AMERICA NEEDS ITS PROUD VETERANS ONCE AGAIN TO ANSWER THE CALL FOR ITS SECOND INDEPENDENCE.
This time Independence from a small opportunistic foreign nation called Israel. It’s time our Veterans provide the political strength and leadership to reclaim our Government to serve the American people and their needs and not the needs of the 16th wealthiest nation on earth, Israel, simply because of a powerful small Jewish lobby, has received $1.7 Trillion from the American taxpayer since 1949 and continues to receive 40% of all of America’s foreign aid while all of Africa and Latin America get pennies per person. Americans are once again being taxed twice: Once for America and Once for Israel, except with Israel this constitutes “Taxation Without Representation” in that Americans have no voice on how their money and weapons are used. Muslim and Christian children are dying in Palestine with America’s bullets, missiles, and tanks.
Is our America “the land of the brave and home of the free” or is it Israel’s America “the land of the silenced cowards, the land of Israel’s hostages”
American Veterans have always been ready to defend our nation and Constitution. However, once their job and sacrifice was completed our own Government disowned, ignored, neglected, and denied their just and fair compensation. In fact, World War I Veterans had to resort to marching on Washington D.C. in the “Bonus Army March” of 1932 to demand restitution of unpaid pensions. The Government’s caring response was to send in the military to evict them forcefully from the city. Today, America’s Veterans are seeking to recreate a second “Bonus March” on Washington of One Million Vets to once again protest our Government’s shanty treatment of these courageous American heroes.
In a recent editorial (1/2/2003) titled “Ill-Treated Veterans”, the Boston Globe excoriates President Bush and the country for breaking the promise to Veterans for a life time benefit of health care if they serve 20 years. This is in spite of President Bush’s statement to the American Legion during his 2000 campaign that ”we have a responsibility to fulfill the health care commitments made to those who wore the uniform.” It is shocking that our brave men and women who’ve served this country honorably have to resort to a class action suit to reclaim their health benefits. (See: http://www.classact-lawsuit.com/response.html)
Veterans are often homeless, without jobs, training, health care, drug and alcohol addiction, suffer from chronic physical and mental health problems (Gulf War Syndrome, Agent Orange, Radiation Sickness), and have higher divorce rates. According to a recent survey by Rescue Missions: “One in three homeless men at Rescue Missions Are Veterans. While more than 40 percent of Homeless Vets Served in Vietnam alone.”
An American Veteran wrote a letter to former Republican Senator Alan Simpson seeking relief and assistance for America’s Veterans. Here’s part of Senator Simpson’s response:
“You made a choice to make the military a career, and no agency can match the benefit level of the military pension. All federal programs are, as they should, being subject to extra scrutiny as Congress looks to regain fiscal sanity in the government.” AUG. 29, 1996
No American politician would DARE send such a letter to a Jewish American organization or to an Israeli official claiming fiscal responsibility and scrutiny as reasons to deny Israel the Billions it DEMANDS and ALWAYS GETS. For 30 years, Congress was automatically doling out Billions to Israel despite a massive federal budget deficit, massive debt, and massive cuts in domestic programs. Congress takes Israel’s “grants” out first from the budget and then balances the budget on the backs of America’s Seniors, Veterans, Minorities, Poor, and even America’s schools and children. In fact, on April 14, 1999, Senators l Moynihan (D-NY), Fitzgerald (R-IL), Charles Schumer (D-NY), and Spencer Abraham (R-MI) introduced legislation exempting all restitution payments to Holocaust victims and their heirs to be exempt from federal income tax.
American Veterans should be so lucky for willing to die for their country. God Bless America and the World with Peace, Courage, Justice, and Wisdom.
