Dans la série des terroristes juifs dont vous n'avez jamais entendu parler: L'incendie criminel contre une école bilingue arabe-hébreu en ville sainte, un attentat politique du groupe extrémiste juif Lehava. Aucune accusation de crime haineux? Et ils retrouvent leur liberté même si leur leader a dit qu'ils n'arrêteront jamais de terroriser les Palestiniens et combattre le métissage


Si c'est pas des musulmans, c'est pas des terroristes?
Ah bon.

Des extrémistes juifs sont derrière l'attaque contre l'école bilingue à Jérusalem
Les trois suspects juifs arrêtés pour avoir mis le feu fin novembre à une école bilingue arabe-hébreu à Jérusalem sont membres d'un groupe extrémiste, connu sous le nom de Lehava, ont déclaré jeudi les services de sécurité israéliens, le Shin Bet.

Yitzhak Gabay, originaire de Jérusalem, ainsi que Nachman Twito et son frère Shlomo Twito, originaires de Beitar Ilit, une colonie juive de Cisjordanie, ont été arrêtés plus tôt cette semaine et ont reconnu avoir mis le feu à l'école et inscrit des slogans anti-arabes, a précisé l'agence dans un communiqué.

Les trois jeunes hommes ont indiqué avoir commis cet acte pour protester contre la coexistence et l'assimilation des Juifs et des Arabes, selon le Shin Bet.

Une partie de l'école bilingue Max Rayne Hand in Hand a été incendiée il y a deux semaines, endommageant plusieurs classes, et des graffitis racistes, tels que "mort aux Arabes", ont été inscrits.

L'école, qui compte 1.000 élèves, est le plus grand institut juif-arabe géré par des éducateurs juifs et arabes depuis 1998.

Lehava est un groupe extrémiste qui s'oppose aux mariages entre des femmes juives et des hommes non-juifs, en particulier arabes. Il a été fondé par des disciples de Meir Kahane, fondateur du mouvement raciste anti-arabe Kach, assassiné en 1990 à New York.

False flag raté et terroristes juifs dont vous n'avez jamais entendu parler...

Il y a vingt ans, l'attentat terroriste du loubavitch kahaniste Baruch Goldstein à Hébron montrait la fête de Pourim sous son vrai jour

ENCORE UNE FOIS... Pire qu'en 2012, la dépopulation de la Palestine va bon train... Châtiments collectifs contre les Palestiniens: conséquence de la culture de haine en Israël et de sa dissimulation par le puissant lobby pro-israélien international. Israel sera-t-il récompensé du Nobel de la paix? Le parrain Netanyahou "prévient" les Français que les terroristes vont frapper chez eux s'ils continuent à tolérer les manifestations "pro-Hamas"... Jimmy Carter, considéré antijuif pour son livre PALESTINE--PEACE NOT APARTHEID (qui a scandalisé la communauté juive pour avoir omis d'y mentionner la divine Shoah!!), accuse Israël de ne pas reconnaître le Hamas comme un acteur politique légitime.

Guardian editorial condemning CIA torture curiously includes image of a Jewish menorah
The Observer (sister site of the Guardian) published an official editorial today (The Observer view on torture, Dec. 14) in response to a report issued by the US Senate Intelligence Committee into the CIA’s interrogation of terror suspects in the years after the 9/11 attacks.
Whilst there’s nothing especially noteworthy in the editorial itself, which condemned “America’s most senior leaders, from former president George W Bush down”, for directing and condoning “the use of abhorrent illegal techniques against terrorism suspects that plainly amounted to torture”, the photo editors chose to accompany the piece is quite curious.

menorah
Guardian editors chose the photo of Bush in front of a menorah (from a 2008 White House Hanukkah ceremony) despite the absence of any references to Jews in the text, and the fact that the media group no doubt has countless other photos of the former president – which don’t include eye-catching symbols evoking one particular religion which isn’t the focus of the editorial – that they could have used instead.

No, we’re not accusing the Guardian of antisemitism, just extremely poor editorial judgment.

What Are Those Contractors Doing in Iraq?
By Deborah Avant
Sunday, May 9, 2004; Page B01


The alleged U.S. abuses at Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad, and the suggestion that contract employees may have been among those responsible, has cast a spotlight on the military's extraordinary reliance on civilian contractors to perform even the most sensitive jobs. Consider this: During the first Gulf War, U.S. forces employed one civilian contractor in Iraq for every 60 active-duty personnel. At the start of the current Iraq war, that figure was about one in 10.
Contractors, in Iraq and elsewhere, are doing a lot more than building and maintaining camps, preparing food and doing laundry for troops. They support M1 tanks and Apache helicopters on the battlefield; they train American forces, Army ROTC units and even foreign militaries under contract to the United States. And they have flooded into Iraq to provide the military with security and crime prevention services. Having closely followed this explosion of military contracting since the end of the Cold War, I thought I knew the extent of it. But I have to admit that I did not know the government was also outsourcing the interrogation of military prisoners.
The information was far from secret. Indeed, CACI International, a defense firm based in Arlington whose employees were implicated in an Army investigation in February and in a subsequent report by Maj. Gen. Antonio M. Taguba, had advertised on its Web site for interrogators in Iraq. Thousands of such contracts are issued by a long list of offices within the Pentagon, and even by the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) in Baghdad, to a wide range of companies for innocuous-sounding services. (The prisoner interrogators were hired under an "intelligence services" category.) This illustrates some of the difficulties in tracking what has become a vast web of military contracting.
When the United States deploys its military forces, the process is easily understood: Active or reserve officers, who report up the chain of command to the president according to rules set by Congress and governed by the Uniform Code of Military Justice, go overseas. The media cover deployments and the public is informed. But there are no standard procedures for deploying private security workers under military contracts, which makes it far more difficult to gather information about who they are, what they're doing and for whom. They are not part of the military command; they are not covered by the code of military justice.
The events of the last few days illustrate those differences well. When reports of abuses at Abu Ghraib surfaced, it was clear that the 800th Military Police Brigade (which includes the 372nd Military Police Company, home to many of the accused) was in charge of the prison; prisoner interrogations were run by the 205th Military Intelligence Brigade. But Taguba's report also mentions four civilian contractors, all of whom were assigned to the 205th Military Intelligence Brigade. Two of those civilians, Steven Stephanowicz and John Israel, were "either directly or indirectly responsible for the abuses" at Abu Ghraib, the report says. A third contractor, Adel Nakhla, is named as a translator -- and a suspect. A fourth, Torin Nelson, was said to be a witness. Both Nakhla and Nelson are listed as employees of Titan Corp., a security contractor based in San Diego.
The report identified Stephanowicz as an interrogator working for CACI; Israel, an interpreter, was also said to be working for CACI, although the company has denied that. Some news reports have identified Israel as an employee of Titan, which in turn has said he works for one of its subcontractors.
So, we are not even sure for whom these contractors work or worked. Nor do we know how many other contract employees were -- and may still be -- working at the prison. (In his testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Friday, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld put the number of contract interrogators and linguists at Abu Ghraib at about 40; other Pentagon officials cited different figures in their testimony.) We do not know precisely what roles these contract employees had at the prison or to which group or agency they were accountable. To trace that, we would need to know the contracting agent -- someone representing a group within the Army, probably, but which one? Military Intelligence? The Iraqi Survey Group (a Defense Intelligence Agency unit responsible for investigating weapons of mass destruction and reportedly in charge of the most important Iraqi prisoners)?
And how would civilians such as Stephanowicz and Israel have become such a dominant force at a military facility? To whom did they answer on a daily basis? We cannot simply consider where they sat in the chain of command (as we can with military forces). We need to know who issued the contract and what it said. And that is not easy information to obtain.
A General Accounting Office review of contracted military services last year cited problems stemming from this lack of information. The agency's report, which focused on services delivered in the Balkans and Southwest Asia, found that Department of Defense management of contractors varied widely. Smooth operations require that commanders in the field be able to oversee contractors, but in fact the officer who is expected to ensure that a company meets the terms of its contract may be back in the United States. Field commanders have no easy way to find out what exactly a contractor has been sent to do. All of this makes oversight difficult even among the executive agencies that hire private security.
These problems with oversight in Iraq are not limited to Abu Ghraib prison. While we know how many military forces are in the country, even the federal government doesn't seem to know how many contractors are there. In an April 2 letter to Rumsfeld, Rep. Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) requested information about the number of private security personnel and their role in Iraq. In a May 4 letter in response, L. Paul Bremer, head of the CPA, put that number at "approximately 20,000," most of whom, he said, were under contract to Iraqi companies or foreign private companies -- not to American forces. His list of the private security companies working in Iraq, though, included neither CACI nor Titan, which suggests that the real number may be far higher.
The uncertainties extend to the handling of suspected crimes. In the wake of allegations of abuse at the prison, Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski, commander of the 800th MP Brigade, was admonished and suspended; six others have been reprimanded; one has been admonished; and six additional soldiers face more serious charges. We can argue about whether this is an adequate response, but at least we know what the response is.
Months after Taguba issued his report to the Pentagon's central command, we still don't know what legal action, if any, the civilian contractors may face. CACI claims that it has not been contacted formally by the Army on this matter, and its employees are still working in Iraq. The Pentagon now says that it began an investigation of the Military Intelligence Brigade, civilian contractors and the Iraqi Survey Group -- but not until April 24. What accounts for the delay? And where are these civilian contractors in the meantime? Are they still working in the prison?
It is also hard to gauge how individuals employed by contracting companies might be prosecuted. (See the article below.) The government could prosecute the company or companies that employed them under the Federal Acquisition Regulations for material breach, which includes criminal behavior by employees. The companies could also be prevented from bidding on future U.S. contracts.
Congress is justifiably concerned about the abuses that may have been committed by American forces. Congressional questions about the role of contractors, though, also illustrate the high hurdle Congress faces in overseeing contracts. While Congress has access to the ins and outs of the military -- indeed, it passes the laws under which the military is regulated -- its access to information about contracts (in Iraq and elsewhere) is more circumscribed.
For example, the United States often hires contractors to train foreign militaries, but the annual consolidated report on military assistance and sales, which informs Congress about foreign training efforts, does not include information on which companies are conducting the training or what precisely they are being paid to do. This is simply the nature of contracting. Indeed, while some critics say that Congress should increase its oversight, keeping track of contracts and subcontracts among many agencies and from countless companies would be a huge job and require a dramatic (and costly) change in congressional oversight.
Individual citizens have even less access to such information. Government reporting (and media coverage) on the war in Iraq focuses on military forces. The word "soldier" evokes a set of common understandings. It is harder to comprehend the structure of military contractors, their relationship with other contractors and their involvement in so many different military jobs. Even the language is confusing. When four private security contractors were brutally killed and mutilated in Fallujah, some Americans heard "contractors" and imagined that they were construction workers, not armed guards.
The alleged Abu Ghraib abuses raise central questions about the training of U.S. forces and the chain of command, questions that rightly dominate the current national discussion. Yet the role of military contractors adds an important new dimension that should encourage more searching questions about this march toward privatizing military services and its implications for what is knowable about how sensitive military jobs are being performed -- and whether adequate controls are in place for the innumerable private contractors who are now doing a soldier's job.


Follow torture trail at Abu Ghraib The re-writing of Iraqi history is now going on at supersonic speed

By Robert Fisk 05/26/04
The actual interrogators accused of encouraging U.S. troops to abuse Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib jail were working for at least one company with extensive military and commercial contacts with Israel. The head of an American company whose personnel are implicated in the Iraqi tortures, it now turns out, attended an "anti-terror" training camp in Israel and, earlier this year, was presented with an award by Shaul Mofaz, the right-wing Israeli defense minister.
According to J.P. London's company, CACI International, the visit of London -- sponsored by an Israeli lobby group and including U.S. congressmen and other defense contractors -- was "to promote opportunities for strategic partnerships and joint ventures between U.S. and Israeli defense and homeland security agencies."
The Pentagon and the occupation powers in Iraq insist that only U.S. citizens have been allowed to question prisoners in Abu Ghraib but this takes no account of Americans who may also hold double citizenship. The once secret torture report by U.S. Gen. Antonio Taguba refers to "third country nationals" involved in the mistreatment of prisoners in Iraq.
Taguba mentions Steven Stephanovic and John Israel as involved in the abuses at Abu Ghraib. Staphanovic, who worked for CACI -- known to the U.S. military as "Khaki" -- was said by Taguba to have "allowed and/or instructed MPs (military police), who were not trained in interrogation techniques, to facilitate interrogations by 'setting conditions' ... he clearly knew his instructions equated to physical abuse." One of Staphanovic's co-workers, Joe Ryan -- who was not named in the Taguba report -- now says he underwent an "Israeli interrogation course" before going to Iraq.
We know the Pentagon asked Israel for its "rules of engagement" in the occupied West Bank and Gaza. Israeli officers have briefed their U.S. opposite numbers and, according to The Associated Press, "in January and February of 2003, Israeli and American troops trained together in southern Israel's Negev desert ... Israel has also hosted senior law enforcement officials from the United States for a seminar on counter-terrorism."
Stephanovic of CACI, who may also be Australian, was accused by Taguba's army report of making "a false statement to the investigation team regarding ... his knowledge of abuses." Another outside interrogator, Adel Nakhla, who may be of Egyptian origin, was a witness to the "stacking" of naked prisoners in Abu Ghraib. John Israel "misled" investigators by denying he had witnessed misconduct and did not have "security clearance."
Israel, according to Titan -- two of whose employees were mentioned in Taguba's report -- works for one of the company's "sub-contractors." Titan refused to name the "sub-contractor."
Why? Among the company's former directors is ex-CIA director James Woolsey, one of the architects of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, a friend of Ahmed Chalabi and a prominent pro-Israeli lobbyist in Washington. London says CACI "does not condone or tolerate or endorse in any fashion any illegal, inappropriate behavior on the part of its employees in any circumstances at any time anywhere." (...)


(...) A reasonable interpretation of Taguba’s somewhat garbled answer is that, yes, the MPs and soldiers who committed sadistic outrages against detainees acted under the influence and at the instigation of those they believed to be intelligence officers, some of whom were “third country nationals.”
Senator Akaka follows up with a question for Secretary Cambone: “What kind of training,” he wanted to know, “did the U.S. civilian contractors have prior to going to Iraq?”
The look on Cambone’s face made the whole dreary procedure worth it, I thought his eyebrows were going to fly right off.
It is no secret that the Israelis have been “advising” the Americans on how to run the occupation: after all, they have so much experience in the matter, and are more than eager to impart their hard-won expertise. The methods employed by Israeli security forces are quite different from those utilized by the U.S. military: the use of “limited” torture is okay by them, and the Palestinians are no strangers to the sort of treatment meted out to the inmates at Abu Ghraib. So when Senator Akaka asked Cambone what kind of training the contractors had received, my first thought was: The very best!
The Mossad is rightly feared throughout the Middle East, and the world, as the most ruthless (and daring) intelligence agency of them all. Only the KGB ever rivaled its reputation. That they would not hesitate to employ the sort of interrogation methods used to “soften up” the prisoners of Abu Ghraib is beyond dispute: just ask the Palestinians – and Human Rights Watch. That we have imported them, along with their methods, into Iraq seems altogether likely.
But, hey, wait a minute, how is it that American soldiers were taking orders from civilian contractors, never mind “third country nationals”? Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) cleared that up when he put the question to Taguba pointblank:
SEN. GRAHAM: “Part of the defense that we’re going to be hearing about in these court martials is that the people that we’re charging are going to say this system that we see photographic evidence of, was at least encouraged if not directed by others. Do you think that’s an accurate statement?”
GEN. TAGUBA: “Sir, I would say that they were probably influenced by others –”
SEN. GRAHAM: “Okay –”
GEN. TAGUBA: ” – if not necessarily directed specifically by others.”
As U.S. and, in all likelihood, Israeli intelligence officers looked on approvingly, Trailer-Park Lynndie and her ex-prison guard boyfriend, with the active collaboration of the other MPs, systematically abused and degraded the inmates. So much of this nightmare scenario – the hooded prisoners forced to engage in behavior looked on with utter horror in Muslim society – seems like such a gift to Osama bin Laden that the revelation of Israeli involvement gives the whole affair a surreal quality.

Israeli link possible in US torture techniques
In exchange for interrogation training, did Washington award security contracts?
By Ali Abunimah Special to The Daily Star
CHICAGO, Illinois: The head of the American defense contracting firm implicated in the torture of Iraqis at Abu Ghraib prison has close ties to Israel and visited an Israeli "anti-terror" training camp in the occupied West Bank earlier this year.
Their treatment does not reflect the nature of the American people. That's not the way we do things in America.

Truthseekers.com:
APART from the failings of the senior officers who should have done more to prevent the abuse, General Taguba names four individuals as key suspects.
"Specifically," Taguba wrote, "I suspect that Col. Thomas M. Pappas, LTC Steve L. Jordan, Mr. Steven Stephanowicz, and Mr. John Israel were either directly or indirectly responsible for the abuses at Abu Ghraib and strongly recommend immediate disciplinary action."
Jordan is former director of the Joint Interrogation and Debriefing Center and Liaison Officer to the 205th MI Brigade.
Stephanowicz is a "civilian interrogator" employed by CACI International of Chantilly, Va., and
"John Israel" is said to be a "civilian interpreter."
Both were working with the 205th MI Brigade at the time of the abuse. According to the report these private contractors were at times supervising the interrogations.
"In general," Taguba wrote, "U.S. civilian contract personnel (Titan Corp., CACI, etc.) third country nationals, and local contractors do not appear to be properly supervised within the detention facility at Abu Ghraib."
The third country nationals are not identified in the report.
Although Stephanowicz and Israel are both named as being "directly or indirectly responsible for the abuses at Abu Ghraib," very little has been said about either of them in the mainstream media. Why are they being overlooked?
Jack London, chairman, president and CEO of CACI International Incorporated, traveled to Israel in January this year [2004] as part of a high-level delegation of US Congressmen, defense contractors and pro-Israel lobbyists, sponsored and paid for in part by the Jerusalem Fund of Aish HaTorah, a pro-Israel lobbying and fundraising group, and Greenberg Traurig, LLP, a prominent Washington law and lobby firm.
The purpose of the visit, according to a CACI press release, was
"to promote opportunities for strategic partnerships and joint ventures between US and Israeli defense and homeland security companies."
As one of the highlights of the visit, London was presented with the Albert Einstein Technology Award by Israeli Defense Minister [Lieutenant-General] Shaul Mofaz (above right, with friend) at a gala dinner at Jerusalem city hall, for "achievements in the field of defense and national security."
Delegates also spent several hours in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights with Housing and Construction Minister Effie Eitam, a former Israeli general, who is notorious for his view that Israel should "transfer" -- that is, expel -- all the Palestinians.
According to the official itinerary for the Jan. 11-17 Defense Aerospace Homeland Security Mission, obtained from the Jerusalem Fund of Aish HaTorah, London's trip included Tagubaa visit to Beit Horon, "the central training camp for the anti-terrorist forces of the Israeli police and the border police," in the occupied West Bank. The visitors were also "briefed by top experts," and were able to "witness exercises related to anti-terror warfare."
Two CACI employees, Steven Stephanowicz and John Israel, were named in the leaked report [download pdf] by US Major General Antonio M. Taguba (above) on the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison. Taguba wrote that Stephanowicz, a "contract US civilian interrogator,"
"allowed and/or instructed MPs (military police), who were not trained in interrogation techniques, to facilitate interrogations by 'setting conditions' which were neither authorized or in accordance with applicable regulations/policy. He clearly knew his instructions equated to physical abuse."
John Israel, an interpreter, did not have the appropriate security clearance, according to Taguba.
Although Taguba recommended that Stephanowicz be terminated and his security clearance revoked, a May 5 [2004] statement from CACI confirmed, "at present, all CACI employees continue to work on site providing the contracted for services to our clients in that location." It added: "We have not received any information to stop any of our work, to terminate or suspend any of our employees."
Although no evidence has emerged directly linking CACI's involvement in the Abu Ghraib atrocities to Israel, it has long been known that the US military has been interested in "learning" from Israel's experience attempting to suppress the Palestinian uprising. In March 2003, for example, the AP reported that the "the (US) military has been listening closely to Israeli experts and picking up tips from years of Israeli Army operations in Palestinian areas and Lebanese towns."
This cooperation has included briefings of US personnel by Israeli officers, and, according to AP,
"In January and February (2003), Israeli and American troops trained together in southern Israel's Negev Desert ... Israel has also hosted senior law enforcement officials from the United States for a seminar on counterterrorism."
Meanwhile, more evidence has emerged undermining the US thesis that the abuses at Abu Ghraib was the work of a "few bad apples." The Guardian reported that the "sexual humiliation of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison was not an invention of maverick guards, but part of a system of ill-treatment and degradation used by special forces soldiers that is now being disseminated among ordinary troops and contractors."
US soldiers, iraqi prisoners
This system, known to insiders as "R2I," short for resistance to interrogation, also includes such methods as "hooding, sleep deprivation, time disorientation and depriving prisoners not only of dignity, but of fundamental human needs, such as warmth, water and food." These are all techniques long employed by Israel.
The visit of the US delegation that included the CACI head exposes a rarefied web of influence sharing in which US government officials and congressmen, defense contractors and lobbyists parcel out huge contracts, and siphon significant portions off to Israel.
As Batya Feldman of Israel's Globes financial news service put it, the visit provided Israeli companies with "an excellent opportunity to encounter big bucks in homeland security."
To help Israeli companies pry some of these "big bucks" loose, the visit included seminars for Israeli companies given by US pro-Israel lobbyists called "How to Approach the Homeland Security Department," and "How to Sell to the US Defense Department."
Israeli participants would have had a chance to test the helpful tips, since present on the trip were Assistant Secretary for Homeland Security Robert Liscouski and many leading US legislators, including top members of the US House and Senate Armed Services Committees, which jointly oversee tens of billions of dollars in military spending.





davidduke.com | Remember the Torture at Abu Ghraib?

abu-ghraib
By Dr. David Duke, Probably no event in recent history has been more damaging to the image of America than the tortures that occurred at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. President Bush claimed that one of the justifications of attacking Iraq, was that people were being tortured by Saddam Hussein in that country.
Now that the graphic, disgusting pictures of Abu Ghraib reveal unspeakable tortures of Iraqi men and women in American custody (and the world only saw a very small portion of them), it is certain that America’s enemies will use Bush’s own logic to inspire and justify murderous attacks on Americans.
What happened at Abu Ghraib is as unAmerican and as damaging to America as any attack by al-Qaeda . The tortures that occurred there are symbolic of the fact that America has lost its way and that those in control of our nation have no sense of American justice or our honorable traditions.
No appeal to patriotism is any excuse for the tortures. I am a Patriot. I love America. I even instructed anti-Communist officers for the U.S. Government in Laos during the Viet Nam War. But, what happened at Abu Ghraib is symbolic that America has lost her heart and soul, and I grieve for our lost sense of morality and justice. Any government that would spawn those kinds of injustices on other peoples will someday commit them on its own. Once the line is crossed, there is no going back.
From the beginning of the Abu Ghraib scandal (which we came perilously close to not even finding out about), I was shocked by the sickening sexual nature of the tortures: anal and oral rape of male prisoners, vaginal and oral rape of girls and women, helpless nude Iraqi males tying to protect their genitals from vicious police dogs. Can there be a more horrible image of Americans than what these photos reveal? The whole sordid tale seems like something from the pen of the Marquis de Sade.
The abuse at Abu Ghraib is certainly foreign to traditional concepts of American justice, so how did it come about? After sifting through mountains of evidence, I believe that question can be definitively answered: The same Jewish supremacist forces that orchestrated the Iraq War also brought to Iraq the torture methods of the Israeli State. The tortures of Abu Ghraib are completely consonant with the history of Jewish supremacism. As Jewish manipulators exercise their supremacy over our political and media establishment, America becomes more and more their agent in these crimes. We do so at the risk of all we hold dear.
War has frequently brought horrendous consequences on prisoners of war, but in American history most of those consequences were due to the poor conditions of prison camps, not on a purposeful implementation of tortures. In the War for Southern Independence, both Northern and Southern prisoners of war suffered terrible loses from malnutrition and disease in the prison camps of both sides.
It wasn’t until the aftermath of the Second World War that America suffered the scandal of prison torture. The Jewish media supremacy makes few Americans of today aware of the scandals surrounding the Nuremberg and other war crimes tribunals against the Germans. Sen. Robert Taft of Ohio held congressional hearings that documented the widespread torture of German detainees long after the ending of hostilities.
Army investigators discovered, for instance, that in a group of 139 German detainees, 137 had endured testicular damage at the hands of their interrogators. An American judge who was a member of the Simpson Army Commission that investigated the methods used at the Dachau Concentration Camp spoke out against these policies. In the January 9, 1949, Washington Daily News and in the January 23, 1949, London Sunday Pictorial he told of some examples of the use of torture.

. . .The investigators, he said, “would put a black hood over the accused’s head and then punch him in the face with brass knuckles, kick him and beat him with rubber hoses. . . . All but two of the Germans, in the 139 cases we investigated, had been kicked in the testicles beyond repair.”
 John F. Kennedy talks about Sen. Taft in his bestselling book, Profiles in Courage. A widely popular Senator and the front runner for nomination to President of the United States, Taft risked and ultimately sacrificed his own presidential ambitions to stand up on what he felt was a vital principle of American morality, and it earned him a place in Kennedy’s popular book. Taft ‘s congressional inquiries made very obvious the Jewish elements behind these outrages.
Iowa Supreme Court justice Charles F. Wenersturm resigned his appointment in the War Crimes Tribunal in disgust at the proceedings. He contended that Jews, many of whom were refugees from Germany and newly made “naturalized” American citizens, dominated the staff of the Nuremberg apparatus and were more interested in revenge than justice.
The entire atmosphere is unwholesome. . . . Lawyers, clerks, interpreters and researchers were employed who became Americans only in recent years, whose backgrounds were embedded in Europe’s hatreds and prejudices.
Even American military hero George S. Patton weighed in on the whole process saying:

I am frankly opposed to this war criminal stuff. It is not cricket and is Semitic. I am also opposed to sending POW’s to work as slaves in foreign lands, where many will be starved to death. (The Patton Papers by Blumenthal)
 Prolific use of torture by Jewish supremacists is easy to historically document. For instance, in the early days of the Soviet secret police, the Jews thoroughly dominated the greatest torture and mass murder machine in the history of mankind, one that claimed at least 15 million victims and easily eclipsed the alleged Nazi crimes. The fact that every American is extremely cognizant of the “Holocaust” but profoundly ignorant of Soviet mass murder and torture is another fact that pointedly reveals Jewish press power.
Israeli historian Louis Rapaport in his popular book,Stalin’s War Against the Jews, casually admits what we Gentiles are not supposed to know:

Under Lenin, Jews became involved in all aspects of the Revolution, including its dirtiest work. Despite the Communists’ vows to eradicate Anti-Semitism, it spread rapidly after the revolution — partly because of the prominence of so many Jews in the Soviet administration, as well as in the traumatic, inhuman Sovietization drives that followed. Historian Salo Baron has noted that an immensely disproportionate number of Jews joined the new Soviet secret police, the Cheka…. And many of those who fell afoul of the Cheka would be shot by Jewish investigators.
 When one fast forwards to the State of Israel, from its very beginning torture has been an integral part of the Jewish state. One of the factors that drove the British from Palestine was the torture and murder of British soldiers. Even at present, there is copious evidence that the relatively small populated nation of Israel is the biggest violator of human rights in the world and has one of the highest prison populations in the world. Torture is accepted as a perfectly legal routine against Palestinians.
israel torturesA feature article by Joel Greenburg in the very pro-Israel New York Times titled “Israel Rethinks Interrogation of Arabs”, stated matter-of-factly that Israel tortures 500 to 600 Palestinians every month. That figure, which is probably too low as it comes from the pro-Israel New York Times, means that each year at least 6,000 Palestinians are tortured in Israel. Torture of Palestinians has been going on in Israel since 1948. Even if one uses just one-half of the number of Palestinians that Mr. Greenburg says suffer torture each year — at least 150,000 human beings have been tortured in Israeli jails since the founding of the Jewish state, and likely the numbers are a lot higher.
Two years before the Abu Ghraib abuses came to light I wrote an article about how the Israelis force Palestinians, under the coercion of torture, to sexually abuse each other, including the rape of young Palestinian girls. They photograph the outrages so as to blackmail the detainee when he is released. If the Palestinian will not become an agent for Israel, the Israelis will circulate photos showing him engaged in homosexuality. If he has been forced to rape a Palestinian girl, they will threaten to send pictures of the rape to her family. Such pictures would result in disgrace and probably even death for the offender in the strongly religious Palestinian community.
This established Israeli tactic answers the question of why the thousands of photos were taken at Abu Ghraib. The Israeli interrogators (contractors) at Abu Ghraib instructed our soldiers to commit sexual perversions and to photograph these sordid crimes.
There is clear and ample evidence of direct Israeli involvement at Abu Ghraib. A courageous journalist of the CBC National News did a report showing Israel’s connection to the abuses.
On the May 4 2004, a broadcast of CBC TV’s National News correspondent Neil Macdonald delivered the lead story from Washington:
the occupation of Iraq and George Bush’s unprecedented alliance with the right wing government of Israel has placed Americans overseas in danger.
Macdonald then focuses the camera on a retired US diplomat, Eugene Bird, who makes the suggestion that the Mossad was behind the tortures:
We know that the Israeli intelligence was operating in Baghdad after the war was over. The question should be: Were there any foreign interrogators among those that were recommending very, very bad treatment for the prisoners?
torture trail leads to ghraib independent
The key figure at Abu Ghraib is a shadowy, “third country national” named John Israel. Have any guess as to what nationality he is? Here are excerpts from an article by Robert Fisk of Britain’s The Independent titled The re-writing of Iraqi history is now going on at supersonic speed - 26 May 2004:
And let’s cast our eyes upon that little, all-important matter of responsibility. The actual interrogators accused of encouraging U.S. troops to abuse Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib jail were working for at least one company with extensive military and commercial contacts with Israel. The head of an American company whose personnel are implicated in the Iraqi tortures, it now turns out, attended an “anti-terror” training camp in Israel and, earlier this year, was presented with an award by Shaul Mofaz, the right-wing Israeli defense minister…
In the torture report by U.S. Gen. Antonio Taguba refers to “third country nationals” involved in the mistreatment of prisoners in Iraq.
Taguba mentions Steven Staphanovic and John Israel as involved in the abuses at Abu Ghraib. Staphanovic, who worked for CACI — known to the U.S. military as “Khaki” — was said by Taguba to have “allowed and/or instructed MPs (military police), who were not trained in interrogation techniques, to facilitate interrogations by ‘setting conditions’ … he clearly knew his instructions equated to physical abuse.” One of Staphanovic’s co-workers, Joe Ryan — who was not named in the Taguba report — now says he underwent an “Israeli interrogation course” before going to Iraq…

In a detailed article titled “WHO IS JOHN ISRAEL?

Now in the latest story we learn from morally responsible FBI agents of the torture and abuse of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
FBI agents back up abuse allegations
December 21, 2004 in the Detroit Free Press
BY CAROL ROSENBERG and FRANK DAVIES
KNIGHT RIDDER NEWSPAPERS
MIAMI — FBI agents in the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, witnessed abuses of prisoners that included being left in their own feces, chained in ice-cold or super-hot cells and other interrogation techniques that caused one prisoner to pull his hair from his head, documents released Monday show…
The agents’ accounts, contained in e-mails to their superiors to distance the FBI from the behavior, are the first by U.S. officials confirming Guantanamo prisoners’ complaints of sleep deprivation, temperature manipulations, strobe lights and loud music…
Yet on July 30, in one of the e-mails the American Civil Liberties Union made available Monday, an FBI agent wrote that he had seen an almost identical event at the prison, describing, among other things, a prisoner draped in an Israeli flag…
In August, a Boston-based agent described incidents such as this: “I entered interview rooms to find a detainee chained hand and foot in a fetal position on the floor, with no chair, food or water. Most times, they had urinated or defecated on themselves and had been left there for 18-24 hours or more.
Torture victims wrapped in the Israeli flag is very appropriate symbol, for our policies in the Mideast and elsewhere are actually Israeli policies rather than truly American ones. We are spending a king’s ransom in Iraq, we are losing the lives and limbs of thousands of our military personnel, we are making the terrorists around the world more popular than ever. We are endangering America. And, for what? For Israel, that’s what.
And now with the irreparable harm done by the Israeli-orchestrated tortures in Iraq, when will the American people realize that unless we remove these Israeli fifth columnists in government and media we and our children will pay a horrendous price?
Former “civil rights activist,” Jewish supremacist Alan Dershowitz, now has gone beyond his advocacy of torture for those pesky little Palestinians. Now he wants it for American citizens too. In the cosmic scheme of things perhaps every people pays for its sins. What happened at Abu Ghraib, any way you cut it, is evil. If Americans continue to let themselves be used to do evil to others at the behest of Israel, who is to say that the evil won’t eventually fall back upon ourselves and our own children. Look at what is happening to the land of our founding fathers. Every good foundation of our European American forebears is being eroded. Who is to say that the cosmic wheel is not turning right now.
The American people can still avoid being crushed by that wheel. But to survive and thrive will take a great love of truth and a great deal of courage. We must begin by standing up for what is right and good. And that means we must stand up forthrightly against the Jewish supremacists and their pariah state of Israel and tell them that we won’t do their bidding any more!
Yours for our Heritage and Freedom!
