Israel's fake flotilla video debunked...

The second the faked videos were available, cheap edits and voice overs first, Sky News and Fox, both owned by Israeli Likudist Rupert Murdoch, began the disinformation campaign.  The “Freedom Flotilla” of peace activists suddenly became an armed Al Qaeda invasion force replete with heavy artillery, dirty bombs and terrorist trainers.

Patched in over the wounded calling for aid was the Israeli soundtrack, “Go Back to Auschwitz.”  This was played dozens of times before technicians showed it and other Israeli released video and audio from the attack to be counterfeit.  With hours of video smuggled out, those tiny memory cards fit in the oddest places, Israel, Fox, Beck and the parade of media who ate up the lies are now delegitimized as are the groups that stood with them in silence.

It isn’t just the dubbed audio or the new video showing IDF troops executing wounded.  With so many witnesses of unquestionable integrity all saying the same thing, Israel and the media married to them are on the ropes.  The belief that any story contrary to the political or economic ties of the corporate owners could easily be tagged as “conspiracy theory” has backfired.

As a result, every media outlet and every anchor and pundit that took a wrong side against this unexpected avalanche is tumbling into obscurity, Wolf Blitzer, Sean Hannity and Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh, leading the way.


Surprisingly, to many, the Tea Party has failed to criticize President Obama’s weak response to our failure to chastise Israel.  There had been earlier debates on whether our inability to reign in Israeli extremism was costing American lives in war.  That debate is clearly over.  Israel has become, not only a massive liability but has shown America to be emasculated.

Even more surprising, as our Israeli lobby is headed by Joe Biden, Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi and Henry Waxman, the political enemies of America’s Tea Party movement, is creating one of the most noticeable cases of “strange bedfellows” in recent political history.

Does the covert financing from Fox and AIPAC sources that underwrites Tea Party activities, travel, entertainment and staff,  limit how patriotic they are allowed to be?

With revelations that Democratic President Lyndon Johnson, hated by the Tea Party as founder of the “modern welfare state,” shown to have authorized Israel to kill 300 US Navy personnel ( Yes! Johnson authorized Israel to kill the entire crew of the USS Liberty, not the 34 but all 300. They just refused to die…and refused to allow boarding parties) because of blackmail tied to a sexual “indiscretion” with a Mossad operative, anyone would think that USS Liberty Remembrance Day would be a good time to remind Americans about the duplicity of liberal democrats.

But there is silence on the USS Liberty issue and, not a word in support of the survivors or in remembrance of the dead.  Who is sleeping with the Mossad now?


With Britain’s largest labor union, Unite, boycotting Israel and organizations around the world, even those typically distanced from any mention of support for Palestinians now openly condemning Israel for everything from piracy to kidnapping and murder, even charges against the Israeli government for fraudulent use of credit cards stolen from Flotilla passengers, the silence from America is deafening.

The United States Senate is planning to vote on a resolution condemning victims of what has been universally characterized as a war crime.  Here again, conservatives lead the way, in lockstep with President Obama and his top aide, Rahm Emmanuel.

To dodge international condemnation, President Obama has promised Gaza a $400 million payoff, “blood money” to buy silence for America’s unwillingness to an endless series of international conventions including Articles 5 and 6 of the NATO charter.

In fact, no major group in the United States, no veteran’s organization, political party, trade union or activist group has challenged Israel.


Unreported in the American news, the Turkish ship attacked in international waters is, by law, sovereign soil of a NATO signatory state.  An attack on such a target is an act of war on NATO itself as outlined in the treaty ratified by the United States Senate.

With one American citizen executed and several kidnapped, some tortured, American sovereignty has, in itself been challenged.  After the attack on the USS Liberty in 1967, then Undersecretary of State, George Ball said:

The ultimate lesson of the Liberty attack had far more effect on policy in Israel than America.  Israel’s leaders concluded that nothing they might do  would offend the Americans to the point of reprisal.  If America’s leaders did not have the courage to punish Israel for the blatant murder of American citizens it seemed clear that their American friends would let them get away with almost anything.” (Undersecretary of State George Ball)

With the keystone of the “Bush Doctrine” the mutual aid provisions of the NATO agreement and America’s increased vigilance, even to the point of pugnacity, defending citizens from the actions of rogue nations or terrorist groups anywhere in the world, our “blind eye” to Israeli transgressions, be they murder on the high seas, assassination in Dubai, spying in the Pentagon or “bankster” fraud, has dug a “credibility hole” that America may never be able to crawl out of.


With news outlets around the world, some even in Israel, condemning, not only the brutality of the attack but the criminal and nakedly blatant attempt to “spin” the aftermath, destroying press “assets” enmasse in the process, the corruption of the mainstream media has now been put on display.

Typically, a major blunder by a news organization, even those such as Fox that are continually caught in open fabrication of stories, is lost in the events of the next day or next week.  The slow unfolding of the Freedom Flotilla story seems to have fostered a renewal of real investigative journalism, an art thought dead in today’s fast moving world.

Millions around the world, tens of millions of Americans have a clear memory of the carefully scripted narrations to the Israeli videos, now known to be, not only edited for context but also suspected of being “reinacted,” read “fabricated.”

With the mainstream media tied to the scripted limits set by the corporate masters, the real story, the scandal, the sex and violence was left to the internet news outlets, now grown powerful and some too independent, a threat to the Orwellian model.

When balancing between “professional liars” and “conspiracy theorists,” it seems like this has been a big win for conspiracy.  Where this will lead, many so very deserving need to fear.

    Brilliant! One of the most eloquent and well articulated pieces ever put together!

    It Doesn’t matter. Americans are too stupid to learn anything from these events.

    “Oh, there’s a revolution going on? That’s nice. When is the TV coming back on?”

    That’s all these fools care about, and if they’re too dumb to see their freedom and wealth being stolen from them, they’re certainly not worth fighting for. I’m looking forward to seeing these idiots being rounded up and executed by the NWO. It will raise the average I.Q. of the human race.

    Just like the Gaza killings,after one week,all forgotten–lot’s of smoke but no fire under Ashkenazi Israel’s feet.
    Time to call off that Israelies are Jews–they are not but a most feared race that hi-jacked the dying obsolete Jewish faith,back in 740AD. I wish folks would look up this term NAZI–and why it’s never ever connected to this sinister freakish cult.

    The other day I was in a sports bar, where FAUX NOIZE was on almost every single monitor in the hellhole. Well, I happened to have my homebuilt ‘TV B GONE’ gizmo in my pocket, which I slipped onto the table and pointed at the core of the TV sets. I pushed the button and let the thing rip. About 50 seconds elapsed before it found the right code, and OFF WENT THE FAUX NOIZE CRAP!!

    It was eerily silent for a second, except for the small amount of human conversations going on in the place. One of the bar patrons said; “Leave em the hell off!!”, to which I added my own two cents; “yeah, leave them the HELL OFF!!”

    I ate my meal in peace, relatively speaking. The TV’s weren’t turned on again. I don’t think the bar-tendress minded, conversations kept going, and I think I could see a bit of ease returning to most faces.

    So, the lesson to this story isn’t that technology trumps BULLSHIT every time, but that truly, people don’t all want to hear that FAUX NOIZE sh*t while they are eating and conversing. My gadget didn’t have to be repeatedly pressed into service, as it can shut off television sets from quite a distance….but I now know that FAUX can be beaten. Just shut it the hell off. Most people won’t mind the lack of bullsh*t in their evening..

    Has anyone seen anything on the real “cause”, if you will, or the actual turn of events that perpetrated the crisis in the Gulf of Mexico?

    In your listing of the Khazars crimes you forgot the organ-thefts from Palastinian children and prisoners. Al this-and the Gulf of Mexico too-is part of the expanding agenda of the NWO;The Khazars are testing if there IS any international society-or if even NATO really exists- none of them answered to direct attacks. If not what do you think is next?The “spill” of oil,combined with Corexit, a neuro-toxin (deadly in 2.6 p.p.million)makes Corexit 11 times more toxic. That is going to evaporate under the sun and will be driven over the American continent, where it meets the chem-trails aluminium,barium,strontium etc.laid out during decades. Is that good for human health? Or is it part of the NWO-agenda of de-population. If I were an American I would be very alert in the days to come, AS A STORM IS UNDER WAY. tHE “Kalif” of the NWO-gang is Rotschild et.al. By removing the chief, the cowboys allways could stop the Indians. Machiavellianism the other way round.
