See the photos of Israeli girls signing artillery shells, that were subsequently fired at a Lebanese orphanage, then witness the bodies of the dead children where the shells struck.

Image Image Image

After The Victory… Courts Martial are underway at the very locations atrocity was carried out, either under the auspices of the war against terror, or yet Zionist reunification of Palestine, or for the sake of world wide CIA Mossad clandestine ops.


Daniele is at the beheading dais, years have passed and she is a handsome young woman, the sing song words of the executioners steward echo across the assembly, as he reads her indictment, the verdict of the jury, then the sentence of the judge ...death, I sever her head from her body with one stroke of a sword!

Then the other girl, and the one with the camera, followed by the mother of at least one of the girls it looks like, the dude atop the Howitzer will have been hanged, along with the rest of the beardo’s, whose shots are on the same reel having a picnic day at the killing fields in Lebanon, visible at other sites.

War Now Against Israel ...the problem is that the Palestinians, and the Syrians and the Jordanians, do not seem to have the resolve to fight back, long range rockets are not gonna do the job.

For the fact that most Palestinians are Moslems, only reinforces their lack of determination, the Koran expressly tells Moslems to wage war in response to war being waged against them, yet here we have mealy mouthed Palestinian spokespersons, claiming that peace talks are the way to go.

Charge across their lines and over their mine fields, the few that are killed by weapons fire and mines are assured in the Koran, that their resolve will be rewarded, human wave attacks along the entire wall line please, push the wall down, and millions charge into their ranks, and TMSO Yisrael is no more.


Image

The J's are fond of telling sob stories, about how the wicked Nazi's led by wicked Adolph Hitler, did a similar job on the Jews, except AH was a Jew tool, and the Nazi's were the Zionazi who caused the Holocaust, then went on to establish the illegal MSO Israel.

It was a Zionist plot to kill those Jews true to the Divine Covenant, by which Allah assures Jews that the Messiah will appear, whose purpose will be to restore the fortunes of the Jewish people, and who will establish the nation state of Israel, and exhorts them to patience until that time comes.


Image

For more re the Zionist hold on AH research Rudolph Hess, often quoted as Hitler’s Deputy or his secretary, he is widely supposed to have assembled the ghost written manuscript for Mien Kamph, H’s contribution to world literature. A useful project would be subjecting the literary style of MK to academic scrutiny, then comparing the style with the work of contemporaries.

Maybe the real writer would be identified, just as the real perps of 911 have already been identified, their Semitic origins confirmed in warnings to stay away from Lower Manhattan, delivered at Friday prayer services at New York synagogues days before the event.

Image

Hess piloted a Messerschmitt 110 into Scotland in 1941, and was imprisoned there until the end of the war, and was thereafter kept incommunicado in Spandau Prison in Berlin until his death in 1994. His flight proves the existence of a force other than the 'Official' Nazi's, who gave Hess access to a fueled up Me 110, plus weather data essential for such a long flight, when Hitler learned Hess had taken off, he ordered the Luftwaffe airborne in a futile bid to intercept him.

http://www.dockersunion.com

The effen Jews infiltrated the political, defense and media infrastructure in the US, else they would have been prosecuted for the 911 attacks!! Five Mossad agents were filming amid evident Jewbilation... not Taliban agents, not Morman agents fuggin Mossad.

Mossad is Jews... Michael Chertoff is a fuggin Jew, he had the Mossad men released with as many as one hundred more... so you wanna tell me the fuggin Taliban or fuggin al Q, are behind it all, or are you gonna tell me it was fuggin Jews. Cos I'm gonna tell you that they are ripe for the gallows, what do truthers like me have to lose, I post truth... 911 was a Zionist inspired Black op, the H'caust was an inside job.

Image

When Katherine Schweitzer went public, that her family was sent to Auschwitz from Budapest in 1944, it was Jews who did the round ups!! They killed her in Sydney Australia in 2006.

Image Hamad Image Jones Image Makthor

Her death resembles Riad Hamad's murder similarly under Mossad auspices, in Austin Texas the home place of Alex Jones, and the murder is seen as a warning to him. Scott Makufka aka Victor Thorn, pictured with his ol' lady, was in Austin at the time, he is an interested party, and could have been in Sydney when KS was slain!

Yet no police action or media coverage in Sydney where she was killed, nor in Austin Texas.


Image Lowy & Rudd Image Silverstein

Frank Lowy is a friend of Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, Silverstein & Lowy were partners in the redevelopment of the WTC on 911!! It is on the public record, that Silverstein got a warning by telephone before the planes struck the WTC on 911, and that he passed the warning onto his daughter... it follows that if S knew so did Lowy.

Were there fast food orders delivered to his Australian residence on the night of September 11 2001, bearing in mind the drama commenced here at 00:02 AEST September 12!! We say he was up late watching it all on TV, watching his investment mature and hunger set in, Chinese take away lists for that time will need to be checked, for the fact that Australia's policing and security apparatus has neglected to do this already, means they are part of the conspiracy!

Wait for the day I hang him and you all can watch on telly, PM Rudd will be beside him on the gallows as complicit in terrorism.

The war they are provoking, and which is a trap... the Persian Zionist alliance is gonna ambush the US water fleets, and then they are gonna set African mercenaries against the white population of the US... I stand in the way of that!

Nah, it's a waning moon. You missed it by a few days.

Exactly what does that have to do with zionism and the fact that Torah following Jews are anti-zionist?

I think you just illustrated my point, dear Nesaie. :lol:

I'm teasing... I think we're both aware of each other's opinion on this subject, but let's not go there. Too close to bedtime. :)

Anyway, you've proposed an interesting concept: a Communist theocracy, or Theocratic Communism. I doubt it's workable outside of Sid Meier's Civilization IV.

Great game, BTW, and includes at least 8 major religions without preaching any of them. 8-)

We'll have to agree to disagree on zionism. I'm anti-zionist, and you're pro-Palestinian murder. C'est la vie.

As far as Civilization, are you talking the computer version, the first board game version or the second board game version?

As far as the computer form, I've got several versions that I intentionally don't install in my computer. Unfortunately, I found freecol and freeciv... I've wasted hours on both of those. Freeciv works on Ubuntu, but I can't make freecol work, but it works on Vista...(I'm soooo embarrassed for using Vista too :oops: )

Sorry to hear about your Vista experience. If it makes you feel any better, there's a new Windows coming out...again...never-ending cycle. Sid Meier's Civ IV is a computer game from Atari/Firaxis, a complete rebuild of Sid's original game. I also have Civ 2 (Microprose) and Civ 3 (Firaxis, w/o Sid). :)

Back on thread: Not really in favor of anyone murdering anyone, nor do I like war, only homicidal maniacs can make such a claim. But I also don't agree with a lot of what we hear, either. I don't think the Israelis speak truth all the time, they are known manipulators and opportunists. On the flip side of the coin, the Arabian peoples aren't any better than the Jews, so in truth I'd have to call it a lose-lose situation. They're like a subcontinent full of 3-year-olds engaged in an endless game of tit-for-tat. :roll:

I noticed that MartinTimothy posted pics of failed rockets, but not the successful ones. :?

Martin, that's a nice desert-modified Messerschmitt Bf.110 you've got there. The photo's kind of small, which version is it? What kind of gas mileage does it get? ;)

September 22, 2009


KEVIN Rudd has started his Australian investment promotion campaign in the US with a long dinner with Rupert Murdoch to discuss world affairs and the economy.

The Australian Prime Minister and the News Corporation chairman had an intimate dinner on Sunday for more than two hours at the consul-general's residence in New York.

Mr Murdoch said later he had had a good evening and that the Australian economy seemed to be in "pretty good" shape.

Promoting the resilience of the Australian economy during the global financial crisis is one of Mr Rudd's prime aims in New York and while attending the Group of 20 leaders summit in Pittsburgh on Thursday and Friday.

Mr Rudd did not comment on the dinner with Mr Murdoch and his wife, Wendi Deng, but he started his official program yesterday with a meeting of investment bankers and businessmen to promote investment in Australia.

Echoing his positive presentation of the Australian economy in an interview with CNN, Mr Rudd outlined Australia's strong performance through the global recession and its attractiveness as an investment location.

He told more than 25 leaders of large companies at a New York breakfast that Australia was the fastest growing economy in the advanced world and one of the few advanced economies not to have fallen into recession.

In the CNN interview, he said: "What we have sought to do in Australia is take early, decisive action in support of jobs and real economic growth.

"As a result of that, and our heavy emphasis also on infrastructure investment through that stimulus, we've managed to be the only economy across the OECD in the last 12 months to have generated positive growth. Of the major advanced economies, the only one to stay out of recession so far, the second-lowest unemployment, the lowest debt, the lowest deficit."

Mr Rudd also repeated his observation that the fundamentals of the Australian economy and the banking system were sound and that Australia has four of the world's nine remaining AA credited, or higher, banks.

But he warned that unemployment would continue to rise and economic stimulus needed to continue.

"We are injecting large amounts of stimulus because we believe the maintenance of jobs and employment is critical, not just to human decency, but critical also in terms of the path to economic recovery," he told CNN. "You've got to have these two things foremost in mind. I think premature calls for the withdrawal of stimulus, which you hear elsewhere around the world, I think are misplaced in terms of the challenges which still lie ahead.

"But for Pittsburgh, I think there are two other challenges on this as well: to begin among us all to discuss, and to deliberate on, and to agree on, a framework for co-ordinated withdrawal of these emergency measures, these emergency interventions over time.

"And secondly, how do we craft the long-term economic growth strategy which is sustainable for the world, no longer dependant on these massive financial imbalances; huge, debt-driven consumption on the one hand out of surplus economies on the other."

The guests at the investment breakfast included Carlyle Group managing director James Attwood, Westpac US head Hugh Killen, Laura Levenstein of Moody's, JPMorgan Chase managing director Jennifer Nason and cardboard king Anthony Pratt.

Relocating Israel in Australia: crazy or not?


:lol: :lol: :lol:

Previous attempts

It is not the first time that Australia has been targetted as a new homeland - in the 1930s Sir Isaac Steinberg began a campaign to establish a Jewish homeland in the Kimberley for his people who were being persecuted across Europe. The scheme to relocate 75,000 Jews onto their own farms had astonishing support by modern standards, both financially and politically. There was also serious consideration given to Tasmania as a Judaic homeland! All I can say is, the fishing in the Dead Sea must be pretty special for Israel for get the nod over these two spots.

Dr Bob Birell from Monash University disputes my fishing theory and suggests that the Jeiwsh relocation scheme failed because Australia could not reconcile its assimilationist policy at the time with the idea of an ethnic enclave - the same reasons he thinks a New Maldives would never work in Australia ... but surely we could squeeze them in somewhere?




Melbourne journalist Leon Gettler takes us to the 1930s when the Kimberley region in Western Australia was proposed as a place of refuge for Europe's Jews before Australia gave up teritory in palestine, as part of Australia's claim to the ottoman empire, whome Australia defeated in world war one.


Transcript

Rachael Kohn: The current pull-out of Jews from Gaza brings to mind another episode in the modern history of Jews trying to find a safe haven, this time in Australia in the 1930s.


Hello, I'm Rachael Kohn and this is The Ark on ABC Radio National.


Today, Melbourne journalist Leon Gettler takes us back to the early part of the 20th century when the Jews of Europe thought the Kimberley in Western Australia might provide a place of refuge.


Leon Gettler: In Russia, Tsarist officials were instigating anti-Jewish riots to divert attention away from poverty and social unrest that was happening there. And so you had mobs going on the rampage in southern provinces, murdering hundreds of Jews, destroying Jewish shops, homes, synagogues.


In a place like Kishinev which is a monastery town, in 1903, it was a slaughterhouse. I mean the rioters went on the rampage, they gauged out eyes, they smashed out skulls, and cut off breasts and castrated, hanged, hacked their victims to death, and police just sat by, didn't do anything.


Similarly in Germany there were mass meetings stirring up anti-Semitism, thugs were going around the streets hunting for Jews to bash. By the end of the 19th century many Jews were starting to realise that they could never be accepted as true citizens of Europe.


Rachael Kohn: Well with these movements against them, I guess it's no surprise that Jews were looking elsewhere for places to live, and that included the ancient land of Israel, but it also included other places. How did the Kimberley in north-west Australia compare to those other places where Jews tried to establish colonies?


Leon Gettler: You actually have to go back to the history of the Zionist movement.


The first Zionist Congress took place in the Swiss city of Basle in 1897 and they called for the establishment of a legally secured, publicly recognised home for the Jews in Palestine. The stumbling block though was the Ottoman Empire, which flatly rejected proposals of a Jewish State in Palestine, which was then part of the Ottoman Empire. So in 1903, Britain's Secretary for the Colonies, Joseph Chamberlain, hit upon a compromise solution by offering the Jews a territory in Uganda, in East Africa. And there was a huge amount of debate within the Zionist movement.


A group broke away, the Jewish Territorialist Organisation. Their aim was to procure land which could be established as a home for the Jews and run as an independent State. Around this time, we had a parallel movement coming up. It was under the guidance of a Jewish philanthropist, Baron Maurice de Hirsch. The pogroms of the turn of the century had convinced Hirsch that the Jews needed a haven where they could set themselves up safely as farmers. So he set aside $10-million, which was no small amount of money in those days, to form the Jewish Colonisation Association, which established settlements in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, and the US, but all these attempts came to nothing because the colonists abandoned the farms and moved to the cities.


Rachael Kohn: Well tell me about the man who promoted the Kimberley scheme, Isaac Steinberg, and the Freeland League which he represented.


Leon Gettler: The entire Kimberley episode is an extraordinary story because it was accelerated by one man, Steinberg. He was an unstoppable religious Jew from Russia, a former member of Lenin's Cabinet.


Rachael Kohn: So a Communist and a religious Jew?


Leon Gettler: A social revolutionary, left-winger and a religious Jew. He also got his Doctorate of Law at Heidelberg University; he had been expelled from Tsarist Russia for revolutionary activity. He was also a skilled politician. He spoke seven languages, and he had this tremendous force of personality.


Rachael Kohn: Well people who describe him are always amazed at his optimism. Clearly it came from his many skills.


Leon Gettler: Oh yes, yes, and not just his many skills, but he had an uncanny ability to bring people with him. It was he alone who galvanised such huge support for the Freeland League Scheme.


Rachael Kohn: Well Steinberg's idea of Jewish Kimberley was pretty thoroughgoing. Can you give some idea of the scale of what he planned to achieve there in this remote wilderness in the north-west of Australia?


Leon Gettler: He envisaged setting up a settlement over a huge area for 75,000 Jewish refugees. They envisaged these refugees taming the wilderness by establishing farms for livestock and growing crops. These farms, they said, would provide raw materials for secondary industries, such as tanning, canning fruits and vegetables, manufacturing jams, making leather products, mats, bricks. The settlers, they saw would dam rivers, including the Ord, they would build scientific and hydro electricity stations. It was going to be an agricultural miracle that would not only populate the north, but also boost exports, create new exports and stimulate economic growth.


Rachael Kohn: But this would be an entirely Jewish community, wouldn't it?


Leon Gettler: Oh yes. The idea was that they would have complete cultural autonomy, although they would follow the laws of the nation. So they weren't talking about a Jewish State, per se, but a Jewish colony.


At the time, his writings were waxing lyrical about the opportunity for a total re-birth in a world free from the age-old hatreds of Europe. And it was a world where settlers would write Jewish poems in Yiddish about the kangaroo and the kookaburra. And he said, you know, 'Yet their voice would be the voice of Israel, and the sigh of their songs would be Jewish'. And this was what it was all about, it was going to be a rebirth of the Jewish nation in the Kimberley.


Rachael Kohn: Well it may seem improbable today, but he did gain a great deal of support from some very impressive people in Australia. Can you talk about his supporters, which included the Duracks, the great pastoralist family.


Leon Gettler: Well it was actually the Duracks' land. They had actually gone out with him to explore the area. The bottom had fallen out of the beef industry at that time, this is the '30s, and they needed to offload that land.
Now Steinberg provided a perfect opportunity.


But there was also a huge number of supporters from all over Australia. Labor politicians, like John Cain Sr, Conservatives like Frederick Eccleston, there were leading businessmen, scientists, judges, media representatives, including the then Chairman of the ABC, William Cleary. There was a former New South Wales Premier and Supreme Court Judge, Sir Thomas Bavin, there was a Commonwealth Minister for Repatriation, Eric Harrison, there was a designer of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Dr John Bradfield. It was huge.


Rachael Kohn: What sort of arguments would they be putting forward? I know there was some concern about security in Australia, but what other kinds of arguments did these supporters use?


Leon Gettler: Australia was very much caught in a dilemma. On one hand they had huge reservations about an influx of alien migrants; on the other hand there was a view about we had to populate or perish.


Australian governments and commentators were only too well aware that the country needed more people. In 1937 the Australian population stood at less than 7-million people. Just a few hundred kilometres to the north there were 42-million on the islands of Java and Manjura. Of course there was China, just the Shantung province alone, I think boasted about 35-million people. Japan's population at the time I think was 69-million. Also what was a worry was that there was enormous concentration of Australians in the south-east. You know, one in three Australians were living in Melbourne and Sydney. Many Australians were concerned that Australia's open spaces were an invitation for "Asiatic hordes".


Rachael Kohn: Well I was surprised to read in your book about the Kimberley Scheme, which is called An Unpromised Land, that even Archbishop Mannix of Melbourne threw his support behind it. Was he responding to the worsening situation for Jews under Hitler?


Leon Gettler: Oh yes. And it was actually quite remarkable. It was a rare display of unity. You had Archbishop Mannix saying this scheme would "wipe out the stain upon our common humanity". You had his Anglican counterpart, Dr Howard Mowll, in Sydney, urging the government to sanction the project. You know there were calls of support also from the Primate of Australia, the Moderator-General of the Presbyterian Church, Reverend Robert Wilson Macaulay; and the President-General of the Methodist Church, Reverend Weller.


The most vocal ally was the Anglican Bishop Coadjutor of Sydney, Charles Venn Pilcher, and he was getting involved in a whole lot of organisations promoting Jewish causes, including the New South Wales Council of Christians and Jews, the Australian Council for Jewish Rights, the Inter-Church Committee for non-Aryan Christian Refugees, and the New South Wales Australia-Palestine Committee. And during the war, Pilcher was campaigning vigorously against the prejudice that was confronting migrants arriving in Australia, and he was saying Australians were playing Hitler's game by refusing to help refugees.


Rachael Kohn: Despite the difficulties that Jews were experiencing in Europe, one can easily imagine how the idea of a large Jewish semi-autonomous settlement in the country would arouse the suspicions of anyone with even a moderate sense of national unity. Is it any wonder to you that this scheme also brought out the Jew-baiters?


Leon Gettler: Oh yes. You had for example the Bulletin in 1940, warned of Jews "swarming into the cities", and I quote here "even if they have to burrow under wire netting". I mean it's almost Hitlerian. But you had it among politicians, you had in the Legislative Council in Western Australia, there was a guy called Charles Bennett Williams who came out with a speech which dripped with anti-Semitic vitriol. And also actually in the public service there was some concern.


I found a memo going back to 1936. It was a Department of the Interior official, a guy called Garrett, and he said, 'Jews as a class are not desirable immigrants for the reason they do not assimilate.' And two years later he wrote, 'They're highly intelligent as a class; they usually make a success of whatever occupation or business they follow, but in view of their separate religious beliefs and strict rules as regards to marriage, they become a separate race.


Rachael Kohn: But the trouble is, with the Kimberley scheme, that sort of suspicion and that sort of view would certainly be confirmed because here was a scheme that was intent on establishing an autonomous, separate Jewish community, and what's interesting about your study is you also point to the level of opposition amongst Jews in Australia.


Leon Gettler: Oh yes. Most Australian Jews up until the 1930s, had come from Great Britain or had strong links with the Mother Country as it was. And they were very anxious about their status as a non-British minority and adapted what you could describe as an ethic of Anglo conformity and non-distinctiveness. They worked hard to eliminate any distinctions between Jewish citizens and their Gentile neighbours, so attitudes, languages, dress, behaviour were all expected to conform to the non-Jewish norm. The fact that Australians accepted Jews like Sir John Monash and Sir Isaac Isaacs, as luminaries, that for them was regarded as a high water mark of Jewish achievement.


Rachael Kohn: Well the Kimberley Scheme did not get endorsed in the end by the Commonwealth government, but the story almost took another turn when Tasmania offered a glimmer of hope.


Leon Gettler: It happened through a chap called Critchley Parker Junior. He was the son of a Melbourne mining magazine publisher. He was born in 1911. He and Steinberg had approached two Tasmanian premiers, A.G. Ogilvy and his successor, Robert Cosgrove, who were sympathetic to the idea, but of course then in 1941, you had the attack on Pearl Harbour, and war with Japan shot to the top of the political agenda, so the Australian Jewish Settlement sank to the bottom.


Parker though, was not to be deterred, so in March, 1942 he set out to survey his proposed homeland site in Tasmania's remote south-west. Now you don't even go there, even if you're a really good, experienced bushwalker. His extensive, fanciful plan for the settlement included a foundational mining industry, a fish canning factory, an Antarctic whaling venture, passenger shipping across Bass Strait, manufacture of liquors, perfumes, weaving of high quality fabrics, he even thought as far ahead as offering scholarships to poor nations and acquiring valuable works of art. What he never told Steinberg was that the Jewish settlement he envisaged was going to be called poinduk, apparently an Aboriginal word for Swan, and was to be modelled on Russian collectivism.


On this journey that he undertook, he went by boat to the base of Mount Mackenzie in the south-west, he had notebooks and letters and I've seen those, and he was on his own, and there were violent gales and he got lost. He lit an agreed distress signal, no-one answered. He survived for several weeks, surviving in the end on aspirin, and died. Critchley Parker was the only Australian martyr who died for a Jewish cause.


Rachael Kohn: Remarkable! But as Leon Gettler points out in his book, An Unpromised Land, Aboriginal claims to the country were not even considered an issue by Australia at the time.
