That terrible anti-Semite Ahmadinejad

Craig Murray Writes: The annoying thing about Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN was that there were whole swathes of it with which I was entirely in agreement. At least he did not get into holocaust denial on this occasion: if he could have further refrained from the couple of sentences which were indeed anti-semitic, he would have made the walkout appear unjustified and puerile, But the man is plainly deranged. (I expect that Roman Polanski, whose mother died in Auschwitz, would be surprised at the claim that the Holocuast was an invention.)

I read Ahmadinejad's speech in its entirety and detected nothing that seemed anti-Semitic, unless one adopts the extreme view that any criticism of the state of Israel constitutes anti-Semitism -- in which case we are pretty well all anti-Semites and not in the least bit ashamed of it. In any case, in view of Craig Murray's statement, I re-read the speech in diligent search of anything that might sensibly or otherwise be called anti-Semitism. Here's what I found:

Unfortunately, the world is rife with discrimination and poverty. Discrimination produces hatred, war and terrorism. They all share the common root of lack of spirituality coupled with injustice. Justice is about equal rights, the correct distribution of resources in the territories of different states, the equality of all before the law and respect for international agreements.

This is certainly applicable to Israel. Would you call it anti-Semitic?

Or this?

Conversely, if international relations are defined without justice and spirituality and void of moral considerations, then the mechanisms for promoting confidence and peace will remain insufficient and ineffective.

Or this?

If some, relying on their superior military and economic might, attempt to expand their rights and privileges, they will be performing a great disservice to the cause of peace and in fact will fuel the arms race and spread insecurity, fear and deception.

Or this?

Thousands of nuclear warheads that are stockpiled in various locations coupled with programs to further develop these inhuman weapons have created a new atmosphere of repression and the rule of the machines of war, threatening the international community and even the citizens of the countries that possess them.

Or this?

Ironically, those who have actually used nuclear weapons, continue to produce, stockpile and extensively test such weapons, have used depleted uranium bombs and bullets against tens and perhaps hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, Kuwaitis, and even their own soldiers and those of their allies, afflicting them with incurable diseases, blatantly violate their obligations under the NPT, have refrained from signing the CTBT and have armed the Zionist occupation regime with WMDs, are not only refusing to remedy their past deeds, but in clear breech of the NPT, are trying to prevent other countries from acquiring the technology to produce peaceful nuclear energy.

Or this?

Today, the most serious challenge is that the culprits [i.e., those blatantly in violation of their obligations under the NPT] are arrogating to themselves the role of the prosecutor. Even more dangerous is that certain parties relying on their power and wealth try to impose a climate of intimidation and injustice over the world make bullying [sic], while through their huge media resources portray themselves as defenders of freedom, democracy and human rights.

Or this?

People around the world are fully aware of what is happening in the occupied Palestine. Women and children are being murdered and adolescents taken prisoner. Houses are being demolished and farms burnt down. Yet, when the people of Palestine resist these conditions, they are accused of terrorism. At the same time, the occupier, which does not abide by any principles and terror is part of its pronounced and routine policy enjoys the support of the previously mentioned governments. Let me be blunter. State terrorism is being supported by those who claim to fight terrorism.

How can one talk about human rights and at the same time blatantly deny many the inalienable right to have access to science and technology with applications in medicine, industry and energy and through force and intimidation hinder their progress and development? "Can nations be deprived of scientific and technological progress through the threat of use of force and based on mere allegations of possibility of military diversion?

Or this?

We have gathered here to defend human rights in accordance with Charter of UN and prevent certain powers from claiming that "some countries have more rights "or that" some countries do not have the right to enjoy their legitimate rights".

Or this?

In Palestine, a durable peace will be possible through justice, an end to discrimination and the occupation of Palestinian land, the return of all Palestinian refugees, and the establishment of a democratic Palestinian state with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.

Or this?

This Committee should also be asked to investigate as to how contrary to the NPT -- material, technology and equipment for nuclear weapons were transferred to the Zionist regime, and to propose practical measures for the establishment of a nuclear-weapons-free zone in the Middle East.

It seems to me that Murray's accusation of anti-Semitism on the basis of Ahmadinejad's speech is unsupportable. It may also be disingenuous. Why else bring up Ahmadinejad's past alleged Holocaust denial - an allegation based on nothing more than his insistence that the supposed death of six million European Jews during WW2 out of a total death toll ten times as great should be treated as a historical matter subject to historical research and verification.

To claim that such a view is anti-Semitic when Israeli scholars have devoted years of study to the subject (and have concluded that the death toll was closer to five million than six, and that of those only three million died in concentration camps and of those the number who were gassed rather than dying of disease, starvation etc. is unkown) seems entirely illogical.

Furthermore, it is clear that the reason Ahmadinejad raises these questions is not anti-Semitism but to attack the idea that the Holocaust was so horrendous a crime that it somehow justifies the occupation of Palestine by American and European Jews and their displacement of Palestine's indigenous Semitic people -- with the exception of the very few who were Jews. It is to obscure Ahmadinejad's reason for discussing the Holocaust that prompts the howls of anti-Semitism.

And why conclude by saying Ahmadinejad is insane? On what grounds? Perhaps because Murray, who has himself been described as insane, knows how damaging to a person's reputation such an allegation can be.

As for Murray's comment about the mother of statutory child rapist Roman Polanski -- bizarre.

But Murray has been getting a bad press. So taking the right line on Ahmadinejad may be necessary to obtain the support of those "certain parties" and their "huge media resources."

John Pilger: The lying game: how we are prepared for another war of aggression

... During the Bush years, according to the great whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, a military coup took place in the US, and the Pentagon is now ascendant in every area of American foreign policy. A measure of its control is the number of wars of aggression being waged simultaneously and the adoption of a "first-strike" doctrine that has lowered the threshold on nuclear weapons, together with the blurring of the distinction between nuclear and conventional weapons.

All this mocks Obama's media rhetoric about "a world without nuclear weapons". In fact, he is the Pentagon's most important acquisition. His acquiescence with its demand that he keep on Bush's secretary of "defence" and arch war-maker, Robert Gates, is unique in US history. He has proved his worth with escalated wars from south Asia to the Horn of Africa. Like Bush's America, Obama's America is run by some very dangerous people. We have a right to be warned. When will those paid to keep the record straight do their job?

Sacked envoy Peter Galbraith accuses UN of 'cover-up' on Afghan vote fraud

The top American in the UN mission in Afghanistan was fired yesterday after refusing to take part in what he called "a cover-up" of fraud in the Afghan election.

Peter Galbraith, the son of the late economist John Kenneth Galbraith, left the country abruptly last month after a clash with his Norwegian boss, Kai Eide.

Ban Ki Moon, the UN Secretary-General, announced yesterday he was dismissing Mr Galbraith "in the best interest of the mission."

"I think it's astonishing that the United Nations would dismiss an official because he was concerned about fraud in a UN-funded and UN-supported election," Mr Galbraith told The Times yesterday from his farmhouse in Vermont.

For the UN to countenance an election conducted under the guns of a foreign occupation, was absurd in the first place.

For the UN to be buggering about "counting votes" months after the event when it was known that, among other absurdities, fewer than 150 votes out of a possible 800,000 were cast in Helmand Province shows how totally useless the UN is.

That Peter Galbraith resigned reflects well on him, although if he had never served on this ludicrous "mission" would have cast him in an even better light.

Gore Vidal has lost his marbles

To say "He [Obama] was the most intelligent person we've had in that position for a long time. But ... he has a total inability to understand military matters" is simply a contradiction.

To claim that he retains some optimism about Obama "because he doesn't lie" is either senile drivelling or a stupid unbelievable lie. Obama rarely opens his mouth in public without uttering a lie of some kind. For example, conflating doubt about the official 9/11 conspiracy theory with support for terrorism.

As for "America will soon have a dictatorship," obviously, they already have one in all but name: a techno-dictatorship operated with voting machines, Fox News, a puppet president and a few other mechanical devices. Vidal is just an agent, witting or not, helping folks get used to it.

Two days after the downing of the Iranian airbus, Tehran Radio condemned the attack as an act of naked aggression and announced it would be avenged "in blood-splattered skies."

Warnings became more specific: "We believe Europe is the likely target for a retaliatory attack ... due to the large concentration of Americans and the established terrorist infrastructures in place throughout Europe." Within days, US intelligence was convinced that Iran meant business; and the CIA in due course acknowledged that it had intelligence that Ahmad Jibril, the leader of the PFLP-GC, had met government officials in Iran and offered his services. ...

I agree with Netanyhau [that] "The greatest threat facing the world today is the marriage between religious fanaticism and the weapons of mass destruction."

In fact, no one could describe the danger posed by the Jewish state and Zionism any better. Israel is indeed a deadly marriage between Old Testament gross genocidal barbarism, Zionist fanaticism and a huge arsenal of WMD, chemical, biological and nuclear that has already been partially put into action.

Paul Craig Roberts: America's next war: Obama laying a foundation of lies

By accusing Iran of having a secret "nuclear weapons program" and demanding that Iran "come clean" about the nonexistent program, adding that he does not rule out a military attack on Iran, Obama mimics the discredited Bush regime's use of nonexistent Iraqi "weapons of mass destruction" to set up Iraq for invasion.

A remarkable fact is that because the lying bastard is a Democrat, all the Democrats who hated Bush as a warmongering liar cannot find any fault whatsoever with Barak Obama, of whom in any case, criticism would amount to racism, apparently.

Robert Graves captures this kind of moronic factionalism in his novel Count Belisarius, in which the Reds and the Greens fought one another in bloody riots. Remarkably, Romans of the Eastern Empire were capable of such lunacy without the aid of Fox News.

Well screw the intelligence agencies then. There's one thing the Clintons do well, and that is lying. As former Secretary of State Colin Powell proved, Saddam's WMD's were real enough to start a war with Iraq and Secretary Clinton will show that Ahmadinejad's WMD's are good enough to start a war with Iran.

And when Ahmadinejad's been hanged and replaced by a puppet, America will own all the oil in the Middle-East. Will anyone want to challenge America's world hegemony then? If so, they'd better be willing to pay $300 a barrel for their oil.

Richard Falk: Israel losing Legitimacy War

[The] line of response to any criticism of Israel's behavior in occupied Palestine, especially if it comes from the UN or human rights NGOs, is to cry "foul play!" and avoid any real look at the substance of the charges. It is an example of what I call 'the politics of deflection,' attempting to shift the attention of an audience away from the message to the messenger. The more damning the criticism, the more ferocious the response. From this perspective, the Goldstone Report obviously hit the bullseye!

... It may yet be the case that as in the anti-apartheid struggle the shift in the relation of forces in the Palestinian favor will occur not through diplomacy or as a result of armed resistance, but on the symbolic battlefield of legitimacy that has become global in scope, what might be described as the new political relevance of moral and legal globalization.

Agricultural energetics

The energy use by the agricultural sector of the economy has been widely discussed and debated in the peak oil community. The amount of energy used directly at farms is not very large ... Farming operations such as dairies have already become net exporters of energy as electricity. This suggests that even a mechanized farm can be self-sufficient in energy, and "fast crash" doom scenarios involving the collapse of farming are not very likely.

In case you don't know, the term "international community" is shorthand for the US, Israel, and Europe, a handful of arrogant and rich countries that oppress the rest of the world.

Did Bam think the accusation would seem more impressive if made it while flanked by the the dwarf Sarkozy and Britain's most unpopular Prime Minister in a hundred years?

Anyhow, since Bam insists that all options are on the table, i.e., including nuclear bunker busters, and Israel can barely wait to start the bombing, it would seem only prudent for Iran to build some deep bunkers.

Reuel S. Amdur: "Harper the 'socialist' saved by the separatists"

China Financial Markets: More trade tensions

Here, Michael Pettis points out that more "stimulus" spending in China will not lift the economy in the long run if the return on the investment is negative, since the losses will have to come out of future production. Moreover, he points out that infrastructure spending by the government sector in China may be relative unproductive inasmuch as increased productivity in a low wage economy is not worth as much as in a high wage economy such as Japan (where massive government investment in infrastructure has failed to lift the economy out of a two-decade slump).

It should be noted, however, that in a low-wage economy a dollar will buy you more infrastructure and therefore a greater productivity increase, than in a high-wage country. Particularly is this true if much government stimulus spending is made, as in America, through politically connected companies like Haliburton, Inc., which has routinely double or triple charged the government for goods or services rendered.

The question of value for money needs, therefore, to be addressed in every country where governments are massively adding to the national debt to combat recession. Not that it would be easy to get a clear answer. For example, what is the return for $40 million to be spent fixing "cracks in Toronto's Coxwell Sanitary Trunk Sewer, "a major pipe that carries away waste from 750,000 residents on either side of the Don River?"

As a result of this infrastructure spending, Toronto may stink less, but what if any increase will there be in the national GDP? If none, then the current expenditure will come at the expense of future output, when the debt for current stimulus spending has to be repaid.

The question I wanted to ask him was this: "Mr. McNamara, how is it that after nearly destroying the Ford Motor Corporation, then destroying Viet Nam and almost destroying the United States, and then going on to be the president of the World Bank, where you made great strides towards destroying the world economy, how is it possible that today you can be held in high regard and stand up in front of this audience without being pelted with rotten fruit and vegetables?"

Gadhafi points finger at Israel over JFK assassination: condemns Europe for Jewish Holocaust

Here's what neither Harper nor Ignatieff could bear to hear Ahmandinejad say at the United Nations

"Faith and good deeds can bring deliverance and the good life even in this world. Attaining this depends on human will, that is the will of each and every one of us. We must heed the call of our common primordial nature and achieve the realization of this good life.

"On the other hand, the prevalence of military domination, increasing poverty, the growing gap between rich and poor countries, violence as a means to solve crises, spread of terrorism, specially state terrorism, existence and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, the pervasive lack of honesty in interstate relations, and disregard for the equal rights of peoples and nations in international relations constitute some of the challenges and threats.

Was this the bit Canada's Zionist Tweedledum and Tweedledee could not bear to hear? Or was it this:

"Unfortunately, the world is rife with discrimination and poverty. Discrimination produces hatred, war and terrorism. They all share the common root of lack of spirituality coupled with injustice. Justice is about equal rights, the correct distribution of resources in the territories of different states, the equality of all before the law and respect for international agreements.

"Justice recognizes the right of every one to tranquility, peace and a dignified life. Justice rejects intimidation and double standards.

Or this, perhaps:

"If some, relying on their superior military and economic might, attempt to expand their rights and privileges, they will be performing a great disservice to the cause of peace and in fact will fuel the arms race and spread insecurity, fear and deception. If global trends continue to serve the interests of small influential groups, even the interests of the citizens of powerful countries will be jeopardized, as was seen in the recent crises and the even natural disaster such as the recent tragic hurricane.

"Today, my nation calls on other nations and governments to "move forward to a durable tranquility and peace based on justice and spirituality."

Or this:

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is born out of a movement, based on the pure primordial nature of a people who rose up to regain their dignity esteem and human rights. The Islamic Revolution toppled a regime, which had been put in place through a coup, and supported by those who claim to be advocates of democracy and human rights, thwarted the aspirations of the nation for development and progress for 25 years through intimidation and torture of the populace and submission and subservience to outsiders. "The Islamic Republic of Iran is the manifestation of true democracy in the region. The discourse of the Iranian nation is focused on respect for the rights of human beings and a quest for tranquillity, peace, justice and development for all through monotheism. "For 8 years, Saddam's regime imposed a massive war of aggression and occupation on my people. It employed the most heinous weapons of mass destruction, including chemical weapons against Iranians and Iraqis alike.

Who, in fact, armed Saddam with these weapons? What was the reaction of those who now claim to fight against WMDs regarding the use of chemical weapons back then? The world is witness to the fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran, because of its humanitarian principles, even during the most testing of times and when it was sustaining the highest number of casualties, never allowed itself to use such weapons.

"Thousands of nuclear warheads that are stockpiled in various locations coupled with programs to further develop these inhuman weapons have created a new atmosphere of repression and the rule of the machines of war, threatening the international community and even the citizens of the countries that possess them.

Or this?

"Terrorism and WMDs are two major threats before the international community. The Islamic Republic of Iran, as one of the main victims of terrorism and chemical weapons, fully appreciates the difficulties that lie ahead in the road to combat these menaces.

"Today, the most serious challenge is that the culprits are arrogating to themselves the role of the prosecutor. Even more dangerous is that certain parties relying on their power and wealth try to impose a climate of intimidation and injustice over the world make bullying, while through their huge media resources portray themselves as defenders of freedom, democracy and human rights.

"People around the world are fully aware of what is happening in the occupied Palestine. Women and children are being murdered and adolescents taken prisoner. Houses are being demolished and farms burnt down. Yet, when the people of Palestine resist these conditions, they are accused of terrorism. At the same time, the occupier, which does not abide by any principles and terror is part of its pronounced and routine policy enjoys the support of the previously mentioned governments. Let me be blunter. State terrorism is being supported by those who claim to fight terrorism.

Or this?

"Saddam, Taliban regimes were both the products of foreign powers. The people of Afghanistan and Iraq know very well who supported these two regimes.

"Today, to establish peace and security in the region, foreign occupation forces must leave and completely hand over the political and economic sovereignty of these two countries to their peoples.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran will continue to provide full and comprehensive support to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan and their elected governments, and will actively help them in the establishment of order and security. My country will continue and expand its sincere cooperation and interaction with them.

"In Palestine, a durable peace will be possible through justice, an end to discrimination and the occupation of Palestinian land, the return of all Palestinian refugees, and the establishment of a democratic Palestinian state with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.

But why not read the whole thing for yourself.

Nowhere will you find any plans to bayonet Jewish babies, annihilate the Jewish race or otherwise justify the panic this speech has caused in Ottawa.

It merely calls, by implication, Barak Obama, Stephen Harper and Gordon Brown humbugs, liars and imperialist thugs. A charge they seem unable to refute.

More fundamentally, he is proposing an end to Realpolitik, that political differences be settled by means other than brute force including the threat or actual use of weapons of mass destruction. Obviously, the man is mad and dangerous.

Ousted Honduran President claims to be threatened by Israeli assassins

Israeli government sources in Miami said they could not confirm the presence of any "Israelis mercenaries" in Honduras.

Although the Israeli Government has a policy of killing people it doesn't like, it doesn't always announce a hit in advance.

Anyhow, what have they got against Zelaya? Or are they just doing Bam a favor, perhaps. That's the trouble with making murder official policy: it gives rise to all kinds of speculation.

How Gaddafi upstaged Obama

Now clearly Gaddafi is going to get bad reviews in the morning papers here in the US. But I have to say that some of what he had to say made perfect sense. It is entirely true that the structure of the UN Security Council is anomalous and outdated (although it was perhaps a bit harsh to call it "the terror council"). Gaddafi's analysis of why it is so hard to reform the council was also bang on the money ...

Fighting anti-Semitism: a pretext for hating Muslims

Canada submits to Zionist direction: will not hear Ahmadinejad U.N. speach

The chief purpose of the UN was to resolve international disputes peacefully, i.e., through discussion and negotiation. But in Canada, we decide in advance of any discussion who is right and who is wrong. So why not just pack up in New York and save the expense of sending a delegation that does not listen to those of whom it is required to disapprove.

The German Foreign Ministry [has] asked other European Union member states to walk out of the General Assembly chamber if Ahmadinejad again denies the Holocaust, or makes anti-Semitic statements.

Pathetic. Ahmadinejad has made taunting remarks about the state of Israel which continually threatens to attack Iran, and which has accused Iran of genocidal intentions against Israel. These taunts amount to this: If six million Jews were gassed by the Nazi's, why do you condemn anyone who examines the historical evidence? The answer being, that six million Jews were not, according to the distinguished Israeli scholar Raoul Hilberg, gassed by the Nazis, although possibly half that number were.

Apparently, it is OK for Jews to discuss history in an objective fashion but Iranians, Canadians and the poor brainwashed Europeans have to adopt any fiction the Zionists wish to impose on them.

Anyhow, what will the German foreign ministry do if Israel makes anti-Iranian statements? Will the Zionist lapdogs walk out. No way.

Israel persistently accuses Iran of developing nuclear weapons, a claim denied as recently as last week by US intelligence agencies. Israel repeatedly threatens to bomb Iran's nuclear fuel processing plant at Nantanz, an action that would cause a nuclear holocaust affecting millions not only in Iran but in neighbouring countries. Does no one in the Zionist camp detect anything slightly disgusting in such threats? Of course not.


the American general running the Afghan War, Stanley McChrystal, just shockingly warned that the US risks being beaten by lightly-armed Taliban tribesmen in spite of his 107,000 western soldiers, B1 heavy bombers, F-15's, F-16's, F-18's, Apache and AC-130 gunships, heavy artillery, tanks, radars, killer drones, cluster bombs, white phosphorus, rockets, and space surveillance.

McChrystal's news is a bombshell. Washington has spent some $250 billion in Afghanistan since 2001 ...

Senior Council for 9/11 Commission: 9/11 Commision Report all lies

The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined in a book by John Farmer, who was the Senior Counsel for the 9/11 Commission.

Stupid Journalists No. 4,023: Charlie Sheen's 9/11 rant is pure ego

One more nail in the mainstream media coffin. Who can take seriously the opinion of a TV features journalist who has considered none of the facts about 9/11 over the judgement of professors, military leaders, architechts, pilots and members of Congress such as those listed at who have risked their career for the sake of the truth?

In fact, if the media wish to discourage questioning of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory, their best bet would be to shut up about it. There, is no credible evidence in support of the official theory, which means all its defenders can do is resort to ad hominem attacks. The skeptics are nutso (Justin Raimondo), terrorist sympathisers (Barak Onbama) or holocaust deniers (Michael Chertoff: see next item).
