How Zionism has distorted American Jewish life

In Israel itself, there is a growth of racism, there is a growth of religious extremism. The book The King's Torah was a bestseller. This is a book that said Jews and non-Jews are basically different in nature, Jews are much closer to God than non-Jews, who are referred to as uncompassionate....

One of the best speeches at the National Summit to Reassess the Special Relationship between the U.S. and Israel last month was by Allan Brownfeld. The summit has now posted the speech in video and transcript. Here are extended excerpts.

Ukraine's prime minister went on a charm offensive Friday as he visited the country's southeast, pledging to give regions more powers and to defend the rights of Russian speakers.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk met with regional officials who once opposed his new government in Kiev, but not with protesters occupying government buildings in Donetsk or Luhansk.

"There are no separatists among us," said Gennady Kernes, mayor of Kharkiv, Ukraine's second-largest city, where the government recaptured a building taken over by protesters earlier in the week. Kernes and other officials asked Yatsenyuk to allow votes on autonomy for their regions but not on secession.

Ukraine's government has resisted federalization, saying that would lay the groundwork for the country's breakup.

Relax! Ukraine is not ordering its Jews to register


U.S. Sec. of State John Kerry pitifully latched onto bogus anti-Jewish leaflet to shore up his inherently weak position on Ukraine.
Today, the Western press caught up with the Ukrainian rumor mill: apparently, the People's Republic of Donetsk had ordered all Jews over the age of 16 to pay a fee of $50 U.S. and register with the new "authorities," or face loss of citizenship or expulsion. This was laid out in officious-looking fliers pasted on the local synagogue. One local snapped a photo of the fliers and sent it to a friend in Israel, who then took it to the Israeli press and, voila, an international scandal: American Twitter is abuzz with it, Drudge is hawking it, and, today in Geneva, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry slammed the fliers as "grotesque."

The Donetsk Jewish community dismissed this as "a provocation," which it clearly is. "It's an obvious provocation designed to get this exact response, going all the way up to Kerry," says Fyodr Lukyanov, editor of Russia in Global Affairs. "I have no doubt that there is a sizeable community of anti-Semites on both sides of the barricades, but for one of them to do something this stupid - this is done to compromise the pro-Russian groups in the east."

Propaganda alert! Jews ordered to register in east Ukraine

Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk where pro-Russian militants have taken over government buildings were told they have to "register" with the Ukrainians who are trying to make the city become part of Russia, according to Ukrainian and Israeli media.

Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city's Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee "or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated," reported Ynet News, Israel's largest news website.

Donetsk is the site of an "anti-terrorist" operation by the Ukraine government, which has moved military columns into the region to force out militants who are demanding a referendum be held on joining Russia. The news was carried first by the Ukraine's Donbass news agency.

The leaflets bore the name of Denis Pushilin, who identified himself as chairman of "Donetsk's temporary government," and were distributed near the Donetsk synagogue and other areas, according to the reports.

Pushilin acknowledged that fliers were distributed under his organization's name in Donetsk but denied any connection to them, Ynet reported in Hebrew.

Emanuel Shechter, in Israel, told Ynet his friends in Donetsk sent him a copy of the leaflet through social media.

"They told me that masked men were waiting for Jewish people after the Passover eve prayer, handed them the flier and told them to obey its instructions," he said.

Comment: Kerry's response is rich! This coming from the guy who gave his full support to real fascists and anti-Semites in the February coup. The fact that he would latch onto such weak evidence for propaganda purposes speaks volumes. Kerry and his ilk are grasping at straws! See also: Relax! Ukraine is not ordering its Jews to register

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Netanyahu
The pro-Israeli government of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is making diplomatic and military preparations for military intervention in Syria, leaked documents show.

Canada's National Defense has drawn up at least five scenarios for the country's military mission in Syria, according to documents obtained by the Ottawa Citizen.

In one scenario, Canada recognizes "a legitimate armed opposition group" fighting to overthrow the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

To justify a war on Syria, the National Defense alludes to "the rapidly deteriorating conditions in Syria, its impact on neighboring countries and ... the importance of Middle East stability."

Daniel Blouin, spokesman for the National Defense, has described such plans as "routine to significant international events."

Separate documents reveal that Canada has been training alternatives to Assad's government.

Snowden asks Putin about Russian surveillance


Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden joined a public question-and-answer session with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow via video.

Snowden asked Putin if Russia had similar surveillance programs as the United States--referring to the mass collection and storage of data from individuals around the world.

"Mr. Snowden, you are a former agent, a spy, I used to be working for an intelligence service, we are going to talk one professional language," Putin began, via a translator.

Putin explained that any intelligence operations were strictly regulated by Russian law, and required court permission to spy on an individual.

"We don't have a mass system of such interception, and according to our law, it cannot exist," he said. "But we do not have a mass scale uncontrollable efforts like that, I hope we won't do that and we don't have as much money as they have in the States, and we don't have these technical devices that they have in the States."

Putin said that Russian special forces did use surveillance to thwart terrorists and criminals, but that it was regulated.

"Our special services, thank God, are strictly controlled by the society and by the law and regulated by the law," he concluded.

Comment: In his recent article on the Boston Marathon bombing inspectors' general report, journalist Russ Baker makes some interesting speculations about Russian spying, and their possible motives for warning the U.S. about Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Just how much does Russia know about covert U.S. operations and the FBI and CIA's role in using patsies for false-flag terror?

Was CIA director in Kiev to locate missing Greystone mercenaries?

brennan cia ukraine
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov revealed that CIA director John Brennan was in Kiev last weekend. One of his advisors told the newspaper Vzgliad that Brennan had not come to oversee the "anti-terrorist" operations conducted by the Ukrainian authorities, but to seek information and rescue twenty Greystone Ltd mercenaries of whom there has been no news.

The coup government in Kiev and its Western allies refer to the democratic political opposition as "terrorists".

Hundreds of mercenaries working for Greystone Ltd (a subsidiary of Academi, formerly Blackwater) have been present in the country since at least March 4 [1], operating within the regular Ukraine special forces.

After initially denying it, the White House acknowledged that Mr. Brennan had in fact visited Kiev over the weekend.

The U.S. government's latest attempt to topple Cuba using social media is just the tip of the iceberg, but what's really interesting is how connects to the Ukrainian crisis.

On April 2nd the Associated Press released an report exposing how the U.S. government recently attempted to topple the Cuban government yet again. This time the plot hinged on the creation of a communications network called "ZunZuneo" which was essentially a primitive version of Twitter.
