WHO’S ‘SPEWING VENOM’ – HELEN THOMAS OR WORLDNETDAILY?

By Rev. Ted Pike
9 Dec 10

Twice over the past year, WorldNetDaily owner Joseph Farah has angrily editorialized against the Jewish Anti-Defamation League. He warned ADL not to attempt to destroy WND by insinuating that his online newspaper is anti-Semitic. Yet Farah is now going to greater lengths to avoid the charge of anti-Semitism: placating ADL by recommending its opinions to WND readers.

When Helen Thomas again criticized Israel and Jewish supremacism last week, Farah’s popular conservative news organization attacked her. WND’s top headline screamed: “She’s Back, Spewing Fresh Venom at Those ‘Controlling US.’” WND editor Drew Zahn legitimized ADL as a definer of anti-Semitism by concluding his article with a statement by Abe Foxman:

The Anti-Defamation League further called on journalistic institutions that have honored Thomas in the past to revoke awards given to the former White House Correspondent. Helen Thomas has clearly, unequivocally, revealed herself as a vulgar anti-Semite. This is a final chapter of the otherwise illustrious career. Unlike her previous spontaneous remark into a camera, these words were carefully thought out and conscious. It shows a prejudice that is deep-seated and obsessive.

WND’s endorsement of ADL as the recognized authority on anti-Semitic hate sends a powerful endorsement to millions of evangelical readers. It says ADL is a responsible, credible “civil liberties” group whose opinions concerning hate and anti-Semitism are to be trusted. In its online opinion poll the next day, WorldNetDaily repeatedly held up Thomas to mockery and contempt.

Whose Side Is Farah On?

By featuring ADL, Farah is endorsing the opinions of a vehemently pro-homosexual, anti-Christian Jewish supremacist attack group that has repeatedly boasted of having originated the very hate crimes laws Farah claims to oppose. Farah sides with ADL against a veteran Washington insider whose quiet observations over 60 years show her courage to lose all reputation in order to express them. This is a woman who should be respected at the end of her career for prioritizing what she sees as the whole truth instead of grasping her multitude of honors. Although silent for a lifetime, she now rejects the cover-up of massive Jewish control of Western nations promoted by ADL/WND.

Is Helen Thomas really “spewing venom?” WorldNetDaily’s article omits most of the powerful, unanswerable charges made in Thomas’ recent speech in Michigan. Here is every vital point. Is this “venom” or truth?

  1. Thomas says a nation of abrasive, unjust Jews should vacate Palestine.  This precisely mirrors God’s point of view, expressed succinctly over two dozen times in the Mosaic Law. God says a nation of disobedient Jews can never occupy His Holy Land. (See Thomas’ Remarks are Biblically Sound)
  2. Thomas: “Zionists control US foreign policy…We are owned by propagandists against the Arabs. There is no question about that.” Especially following the US government’s complicity to cover up Israel’s deliberate attack on the USS Liberty, it’s clear that Israel eventually gets its way with the White House. Israel and Jewish media persuaded Washington that Saddam Hussein’s (non-existent) weapons of mass destruction posed an imminent threat to the world. Pres. George W. Bush could have explained that it is not cowardice to refuse to go to war in the Mideast but wise respect for the advice of great American leaders such as George Washington and Gen. Douglas MacArthur. Instead he allowed the Israel lobby to catapult America into disastrous wars to make the Mideast safe for Israel.
  3. Congress, Thomas asserts, is dominated by Zionists. There are four times more Jews in Congress than the 2 percent of Jews in the general population. A whopping 13 Jews inhabit the Senate (13%) with 29 Jewish House members. Even non-Jewish members of the House and Senate know where their interests lie. “ The Washington Post once estimated that Democratic presidential candidates ‘depend on Jewish supporters to supply as much as 60 percent of the money’.”
  4. Thomas claims Jews dominate the White House. Unelected Jews in the Obama administration may be even more powerful than members of Congress.  They enjoy tremendous clout, just as did a horde of previous Jewish appointees, especially under Bush and Clinton. The Jewish Virtual Library online lists these powerful Jews appointed by Obama:

    David Axelrod (2009-2010) – Senior Advisor to the President
    Jared Bernstein (2009- ) – Chief Economist and Economic Policy Advisor to the Vice President
    Rahm Emanuel (2009-2010) – Chief of Staff
    Lee Feinstein (2009) Campaign Foreign Policy Advisor
    Gary Gensler (2009- ) – Chair of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission
    Elena Kagan (2009-2010) – Solicitor General of the United States
    Ronald Klain (2009- ) – Chief of Staff to the Vice President
    Jacob Lew (2010- ) – Director of the Office of Management and Budget
    Eric Lynn (2009- ) – Middle East Policy Advisor
    Peter Orszag (2009-2010) – Director of the Office of Management and Budget
    Dennis Ross (2009- ) – Special Advisor for the Gulf and Southwest Asia to the Secretary of State
    Mara Rudman (2009- ) – Foreign Policy Advisor
    Mary Schapiro (2009- ) – Chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission
    Dan Shapiro (2009- ) – Head of Middle East desk at the National Security Council
    Susan Sher (2009- ) – First Lady’s Chief of Staff
    James B. Steinberg (2009- ) – Deputy Secretary of State
    Lawrence Summers (2009- ) – Director National Economic Council
    Mona Sutphen (2009- ) – Deputy White House Chief of Staff

    No preference for Jews in the White House? Can you think of just one Evangelical Christian appointed by Obama to high government position?

    Before his death, Sen. Robert Byrd sounded the alarm against the Obama administration for also appointing dangerously powerful “czars” who can influence policy and are accountable to no one:

    “As presidential assistants and advisers, these White House staffers are not answerable for their actions to the Congress, to cabinet officials, or to virtually anyone but the President. They rarely testify before congressional committees, and often shield the information and decision-making process behind the assertion of executive privilege. In too many instances, White House staff have been allowed to inhibit openness and transparency, and reduce accountability.”

    These power players are almost all Jewish and include Larry Summers, Cass Sunstein, Kenneth Feinberg, Steven Rattner (who previously ran three Jewish banks), Alan Bersin, Todd Stern and Carol Browner.

    In Mearsheimer and Walt’s Israel Lobby, former AIPAC head Morris Amitay states that lower level Congressional staffers are also a source of Jewish power in Washington DC. He says, “there are a lot of guys at the working level up here [Capitol Hill] who happen to be Jewish, who are willing … to look at certain issues in terms of their Jewishness … These are all guys who are in a position to make the decision in these areas for those senators … You can get an awful lot done just at the staff level.”

    AIPAC itself is one of the most powerful lobbies in Washington and is known as an unstoppable force in defeating candidates critical of Israel and rewarding its supporters. Former Democrat Senator Ernest Hollings said, “you can’t have an Israeli policy other than what AIPAC gives you around here.”

  5. Thomas: “I can call a President of the United States anything in the book, but I can’t touch Israel. I cannot say anything [critical] about Israel in this country.” This is self-evident from the fact that after Thomas first criticized Israel last spring her career was ruined. A few more words against Israel last week, and ADL/WND encourage removal of her from the pages of history.
  6. Thomas: Israel “has Jewish-only roads in the West Bank. No American would tolerate that – white-only roads.” Would Abe Foxman tolerate white-only roads in Arizona? End of discussion.
  7. Thomas: “The Zionists have to understand that’s their country, too. Palestinians were there long before any European Zionists.” From the final expulsion of all Jews from Palestine after the abortive Bar Kokhba revolt in 134 A.D., Jews constituted only a tiny minority in Israel. Arabs, however, have been the vast majority for 1,800 years – until nearly half (800,000) were violently driven out by Zionist terrorists in 1948.
  8. Thomas says Wall Street is “owned” by Jews. Goldman and Sachs dominates the financial industry and shares huge responsibility for the meltdown, having been charged with fraud. Goldman and Sachs were its Jewish founders and almost all of its partners since have been Jewish; today it is run by Lloyd Blankfein, Jewish. Another firm charged with responsibility is Magnetar, which is run by Jews including its founder Alec Litowitz. The current chairman of the Federal Reserve is Jewish Ben Bernanke, who took the helm from Jewish Alan Greenspan. Both Bernanke and Greenspan argued for unregulated financial derivatives, which greatly contributed to the US financial collapse. The Federal Reserve itself is quintessentially Jewish, being owned not by the federal government and American people but by a consortium of Jewish international bankers including the Rothschilds. Other super-powerful Wall Street Jews include Gary Cohn (COO Goldman Sachs), Barry Zubrow (Morgan Chase), Tom Nides (Morgan Stanley), Bob Greifeld (Nasdaq), Arthur Levitt and Harvey Goldschmid (SEC), Richard Neiman (State Banking Superintendent). These are just a few of the influential Jewish insiders shaping American finances.

    In a Forward article, Jill Jacobs laments that unethical Jews receive honor from other Jews as long as they donate some of their ill-gotten wealth back to the Jewish community. This is what the infamous Bernie Madoff did, bilking average Americans (as well as fellow Jews) out of billions.

    The Jewish Phenomenon tells us that Jews, who are 2 percent of total Americans, are 45 percent of the top 40 of the Forbes 400 richest Americans. They are one third of all American multi-millionaires. Clearly, Jews, ethical or not, bear an outsized responsibility for shaping the financial world in America today.

  9. “Hollywood,” Thomas says, is controlled by Jews. To quickly confirm Jewish domination of the media, just visit the film department of your local major metropolitan library. You will find a number of books written by Jews (including Neal Gabler’s classic “An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood”) which document Jewish creation and control of the Hollywood film industry and the Big Three TV networks. Go to the prestigious Encyclopedia Judaica articles on “Motion Pictures” and “Television and Radio.” This Jewish reference source gives definitive testimony of how Jews created Hollywood and big media. In its article on “Publishing,” the encyclopedia also documents vast Jewish ownership of the largest newspapers and publishing houses in America.  Take this link to my article, Jews Confirm Big Media is Jewish.
  10. Thomas: “It was former Israeli leader ‘Menachem Begin’ who created terrorism… they bragged, in his first book, about creating the modus operandi for terrorism.” In Begin’s book “The Revolt” he boasts how his Irgun terrorists in 1948, as a result of their Deir Yassin massacre of over 100 innocent Arab villagers, precipitated the panic that helped cause 800,000 Arabs to flee Palestine. Begin told prominent journalist Lord Howe that he was not just the father of terrorism in the Mideast, but “in the entire world.”

Clearly, there is nothing “venomous,” hateful, or even anti-Semitic about the opinions of Helen Thomas. They are not even opinions. They are facts, easily documented but forbidden in public today.

The real venom comes from ADL/WND who are united to suppress not only biblical truth about God’s conditional terms of occupation in Palestine by Jews but also the well-documented reality of increasing Jewish control of Western societies. By vilifying Thomas’ true statements as “poison,” WND and ADL turn honest speech into contemptible “hate” – so vile the speaker should be stripped of all honors.  This is the policy toward offenders in communist countries, making dissidents into “non-persons.”

Farah owes an apology to Helen Thomas, his readers, and God. If anyone is “spewing venom,” it is not Helen Thomas. It is Farah, his attack dog Drew Zahn, and their ally in bearing false witness, the ADL.

Helen Thomas is an American Hero

HELEN THOMAS SKEWERS ZIONISTS AGAIN

By Rev. Ted Pike
4 Dec 10

Helen Thomas, veteran Washington journalist and political insider, has done it again—spoken the whole truth about Jewish supremacism’s control of America. In a speech to an Arab-American group in Detroit she said,

I can call a president of the United States anything in the book but I can’t touch Israel, which has Jewish-only roads in the West Bank. No American would tolerate that — white-only roads… We are owned by the propagandists against the Arabs. There’s no question about that. Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by the Zionists. No question in my opinion. They put their money where their mouth is…We’re being pushed into a wrong direction in every way.

Thomas defiantly stands by the statement that ended her journalistic career in May when she said the Israelis should “get the h— out of Palestine” and “go home” to “Poland, Germany, and America, and everywhere else.” Now she says, “I paid the price for that. But it was worth it, to speak the truth.”

Of Lebanese Arab (Semitic) descent, Thomas answered the accusation that she is anti-Semitic.

I’d say I’m a Semite. What are you talking about…We all know the Arabs are maligned. They are automatically terrorists. I was called the Hizballah at the White House, Hamas, and everything else. But I never bowed to those kinds of slurs because I know who I am. I am an American.

Denying that Arabs in general are terrorists, Thomas said it was former Israeli leader “Menachim Begin who created terrorism. They bragged in his first book, about creating the modus operandi for terrorists.”

She adds that Zionists have to understand Palestine belongs to Arabs, too. “Palestinians were there long before any European Zionists.”

Thomas commented on the folly of appointing a Zionist Jew in charge of Mideast affairs. “Obama, he puts in charge for the Arab world a Zionist like Dennis Ross. You don’t put a Zionist in charge of the Muslim world in the White House.”

She also commented on the folly of US involvement in Mideast wars (fought to make the Mideast safe for Israel). Thomas said the war in Iraq was “built on lies.”

Seven years of war now with Iraq. They did nothing to us. They are totally innocent, and they were just demonized. I’m not saying Saddam Hussein wasn’t a terrible man. But how many thousands of Iraqis did you kill, for what reason?…They’ve never explained the war. No weapons of mass destruction. No ties to Al-Qaeda. What is this? Why are we killing those people? And why are we there?

We teach our children to be good citizens, never kill, never lie, never do bad things, and yet in 3-4 weeks, we train them to go and kill people half way around the world, and still have yet to give them a good reason to kill and die.

ADL, World Net Daily Vilify Thomas

Predictably, the Anti-Defamation League issued an immediate protest, labeling Thomas anti-Semitic and calling for rescinding of all her many honors and awards from journalistic and educational institutions nationwide.

Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, said:

Helen Thomas has clearly, unequivocally revealed herself as a vulgar anti-Semite. Her suggestion that Zionists control government, finance and Hollywood is nothing less than classic, garden-variety anti-Semitism. This is a sad final chapter to an otherwise illustrious career. Unlike her previous, spontaneous remarks into a camera, these words were carefully thought out and conscious. It shows a prejudice that is deep-seated and obsessive.

While we will never know what the hidden trigger was that led Thomas to reveal her prejudice, it is troubling that for more than 60 years she has made a pretense of impartiality as a journalist with a large megaphone. It makes it even that much more horrendous and horrific that she is now using that megaphone to release her prejudice in its crudest, most vulgar form. Through her words and deeds she has besmirched both herself and her profession.

It is time for those schools and professional organizations that have honored Thomas in one form or another over the years to consider rescinding those honors in light of her pervasively anti-Semitic rhetoric. Professional associations and academic institutions should not want to be associated with an anti-Semite.

Ironically, Thomas’ remarks follow closely on virulent attacks by the Jewish Southern Poverty Law Center on 18 Christian/conservative watchdog organizations in America. SPLC is accusing them of being “hate groups” which government, police and media should especially monitor. ADL, piously instructing Tea Partiers in “civility and restraint,” breathes not a word of criticism of SPLC’s vicious stereotyping of the “homophobic” right.

Responses from Christian conservative leaders to SPLC’s attack are predictably weak. No one dares mention that SPLC is 100 percent Jewish, although SPLC repeatedly attacks Christians for what they are. Tony Perkins, head of Family Research Council, was the boldest. He demanded an apology from SPLC. Joseph Farah blusters but also can’t bring himself to utter the forbidden J-word. In fact, WorldNetDaily, quoting Foxman, joins ADL in mocking and deriding Thomas as anti-Semitic.

That leaves crusty, 90-year-old Helen Thomas as the only truth-teller among those violently attacked by ADL/SPLC over the past week. Not valuing her lost legacy of honors and position as a columnist for Hearst, she boldly proves that speaking the whole truth means the most to her. Of much greater courage and integrity than “Christian” leaders in America today, she may well be the bravest woman in public life in our time.

A little old lady shall lead them.

Wikileaks: A Tool of Psy Warfare

By General Mirza Aslam Beg

The Wikileaks revelations confirm the obvious, more than what it informs us about the darker corners of ‘US diplomacy, cloaked in securitocracy.’ In fact, it is Cyber War, in the new game of psy-warfare, targeting individuals and countries, to cover-up the shame of defeat of war on Afghanistan, war on Iraq and 2006 Israeli war on Lebanon. The cyber war has been launched, impacting public opinion globally, and focusing on three objectives mainly:

One:    To cause defamation of the countries which have had a role, direct or indirect, in the defeat of the Americans and their allies, in Iraq, Lebanon and Afghanistan, and create mistrust amongst them, so that they are not able to challenge future American plans in the region.

Two:    To create conditions for a civil war in Afghanistan and out of the chaos and confusion, reduce Pakistan and Iran to subservience, something they have not been able to achieve during the last thirty years.

Three:  To establish Indian hegemony over South Asia, including Afghanistan, and project American strategic interests in the region.

The technique used in making these revelations is typical of psy operations approach, of mixing truth with lies in a manner that truth tends to get submerged under the lies, as is the case here. The report has not said a word about Israel, nor it gives any disadvantage to US in the implementation of policies in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and other Muslim countries, which have been particularly targeted. The Wikileaks betrays the role of a country with resources to break the secret code of US diplomatic order, because it is not possible for an individual like Julian Assange, the fugitive, to accomplish such high profile task. The report, no doubt, has created ripples around the world, but will subside as it is looked into with a deeper perspective, regarding its source, intent and purpose.

Hillary Clinton expressed concern over the Wikileaks revelations and resolved to prevent such happenings in the future. In the first place, did she not know what the ‘Wikileaks’ were upto, and why could they not be stopped in time and their website blocked, under the law of the country? It could be checked, if the US government so wanted, but did not, because, they themselves are part of the game.

Over the period, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey and Saudi Arabia have drawn closer to each other, Turkey is also looking East and a kind of Strategic Consensus is emerging. The multi-billion dollar gas pipe-line agreement has been signed with Iran, though Pakistan doesn’t have enough funds for the project but China is willing to support. Iranian generous support for the flood affected people, has been gratefully acknowledged by the people of Pakistan. Iranian President visited Riyadh, early this year and establish a new level of understanding with the Saudis and having had the bitter experience of the civil war in Afghanistan, induced by the Americans after the Soviet withdrawal in 1989, the Iranians are now opposed to any such design by the occupation forces. Wikileaks, thus is a crude attempt to create distrust, between Pakistan, Iran and Saudi Arabia in particular at this critical juncture, when the occupation forces face the dilemma of exiting from Afghanistan, without any understanding reached with the Taliban. Thus a sinister plan is emerging to divide Afghanistan in three ethnic zones and deny overall control to the Taliban, because, Taliban rule is feared by the occupation forces. The plan to divide Afghanistan has been worked out at Brussels, by the Internal Crisis Group. Its main features are:

  1. A few months time has been given to Karzai to negotiate peace and evolve a plan with the Taliban and Northern             Alliance. Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iran are expected to fully support such negotiations.
  2. If negotiations fail, the alternative is to divide Afghanistan. Thus, the constitutional framework is being prepared for the new government, envisaging the judicial system and the political structure, based on consensus of the federating units.
  3. Afghanistan is to be divided into three ethnic zones. The provinces of Badakhshan, Samangan and Saraipul will be handed over to the Tajik and Uzbek warlords, who are already in control of these areas. Provinces in the East and South East will be given under control of Taliban and other tribal leaders. Kabul, Parwan, Wardak and Lugar provinces will be retained by the Americans, supported by about 10,000 American troops, operating from four air bases in this region.

It is a vicious plan, to once again plunge Afghanistan into a civil war and the consequential fall-out on the neighbouring countries. Thus, USA its allies, India and Russia in particular, will have a field day, stoking the fire of death and destruction in Afghanistan. It was the fall-out effect of thirty years of blood-letting in Afghanistan, that countries like Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Palestine and Kashmir are so radicalized. Many more countries will now be affected, in the region and beyond. Sadly, the conscience of the global community, it seems is rusted and is not moved by the death of over six million innocent Muslims, killed in Chechnya, Palestine, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Somalia and Kashmir, during the last thirty years, as a result of state aggression against the Muslim countries. And now the global peace-brokers want to be the witness to more blood-letting, through state terrorism by the civilized world.

When President Obama took over the reigns of the government, some two years back, it was simple for him to demonstrate courage and launch himself in pursuit of the change he had dreamt for the American people and say: “President Bush, you have won the war in Afghanistan and it is my job now to withdraw forces and leave the people there to establish peace in the country.” That would have been a very kind gesture of deeper human sensibility, particularly for the Muslims, who, will now suffer, under the shadows of Wikileaks and the vicious plan of deceit and division of Afghanistan and the consequential chaos, confusion and disorder.

The road to peace in Afghanistan passes through Washington, where the decision makers have to follow the Rule of the Game, that is, ‘engage with the winner – the Taliban, to lay down the conditions for peace.’ History is a witness to the rule of the game, some 2336 years ago, when Porus, the ruler of the Pak-Afghan border region, was produced before Alexander, the conqueror, who asked Porus, “What treatment should be given to you”? Porus replied “You know the Rule of the Game – Treat the way a king treats another king, who is defeated.” Alexander was so impressed that he handed over the territory, he had won, to Porus, and from this territory the Maurias rose to establish an empire, under the ‘Trimurti Seal’, which now is the State emblem of India.

Washington must follow, the Rule of the Game for the sake of enduring peace in Afghanistan. Truth must be faced, as Albert Schweitzer, the French philosopher said: “Truth has no special time of its own. It’s hour is now – always.”
