Dining in the Swamp

(Not where they went, but somehow the photo seems appropriate.)

(Update: It does indeed look like Haifa had to do some serious editing.)

https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2017-10-26/trump-coy-on-whats-coming-out-on-jfk-assassination

1. Saturday. It was a lovely fall evening in DC, around mid October.  Mantiq and frequent Mantiq al-Tayr guest editor Haifa Wehbe both had something to celebrate that evening so the two sallied forth for an evening at a fancy DC establishment with a few friends who sometimes rely on their advice about things Middle Eastern – but more often than not, don’t. 

Btw, Mantiq and all of the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr are thrilled that Lebanon somehow isn’t on Trump’s stupid fucking banned list. We had previously advised Trump that if he really wanted to use the list to protect the US he should at least add Israel to it. Somehow that suggestion got rejected. But we digress. 

No sooner was the group seated than they all ordered suitable refreshments. Casual observers would be forgiven if they thought that this group kept consuming these as if they had all just come out of a one hour steam bath. After a few drinks and a fair amount of food, none of which was Israeli hummus, the conversation turned serious.

Trump:  Those assholes at CIA have been trying to deep six my presidency since before the election. I want to get back at them and really fuck them up. I have fucking had it. (He then grabs Conway, but just for a second.)

Bannon: Why don’t you have them release the J (interrupted by Pompeo)

Pompeo: I have it under control. No worries. 

Mattis:  Let McMaster and me work on it, we have some ideas.

McMaster:  I agree.  I’m thinking we should cut their operations budget like 10% as a warning.  If they get out of line, we’ll arrange for some accidents in the field. 

Trump:  I like that. 

Mantiq: I do too. 

Haifa: How about 20%?

Bannon: Order the release of the JF (interrupted by Miller)

Miller: Why not leak the torture report in full to our friends at the Jerusalem Washington New York Times Post?

Trump: No. Torture is not the problem and Americans don’t care about torture, thanks in large part to our friends at the Jerusalem Washington New York Times Post. 

Haifa:  He has a point there. 

Mattis:  We could make it look like the CIA was behind the Las Vegas shootings. 

Pompeo:  Shit, then why the hell did we make Campos go underground and tell the Nishamura asshole that if he spoke again we’d kill him?  Of course even a Shas party member could guess we did it, so I guess it doesn’t really matter. 

(Haifa’s reaction was to have the most expressive WTF face Mantiq had ever seen.)

Conway: We should release the CIA papers on the Bowling Green massacre.

(Haifa’s reaction was to have the most expressive WTF face Mantiq had ever seen, again.)

Mattis: (Talking to himself: Just kill me now.)

Bannon:  Jesus Fucking Christ, just order the release of the Ken (interrupted by McMaster)

McMaster: Let’s have the NSA release their conversations about what their deep state fucks were doing at Comet on Connecticut Ave. 

Trump: Now you are talking. 

Bannon: That’s bullshit and besides they normally eat at Bucks anyway. Just fucking release the assassin (interrupted by Conway). 

Conway: Why don’t we make it look like the CIA is behind Iran’s nuclear weapons program?

Haifa: But Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program you stupid bitch. 

Mattis: Has anyone here ever read “A Mosque in Munich?”

(Mantiq and Haifa smile nervously at each other.)

Miller: It’s too subtle and really beside the point.  Look Mike, why don’t you take a job here in the White House and let’s put my buddy Dick Spence in charge at CIA?  That should pretty much fuck them up completely.  We’ve got so much dirt from Comet on those a-holes on the senate Intel committee that I think we can get senate approval. 

Trump:  He was my first choice anyway. 

Bannon: Everybody SHUT THE FUCK UP AND LISTEN TO ME!!!!  Release the Kennedy papers, the Kennedy papers, they fucking killed Kennedy. What the fuck is the matter with you people?

Pompeo: Steve, you ignorant slut. The papers prove that Israel did it. 

(Note to Shas Party members, that’s one reason Haifa and Mantiq had suggested Trump add Israel to the ban, but we digress.)

Trump: Oh, shit. Never mind. 

Bannon: Haifa is a good editor. . .

Haifa and Mantiq quickly got the check and paid the bill for the whole party. Trump ordered a limo through Uber and once they were all inside the two bid them farewell and walked off into the cool night autumn air in the direction of a good DC shisha bar. 

When they arrived their good buddy (and also an occasional Mantiq al-Tayr guest editor) Hasan was there. Nothing like great shisha, great friends and discussing the true meanings of iman and hubb.

(The tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr who composed the piece wish to thank occasional guest editor Mulaykah Al-Alamaniyya for coming up with the title they used.)

2. Okay, it’s video time. Haifa makes us forget (for a while) how utterly fucked up everything is.  Thank you. 

Telling The Goyim How To Talk About Israel

“But one must be at least a Jew to tell the goyim how they may or may not talk about Israel.”

Bret Stevens

That’s pretty much what the whole Plame/Giraldi brouhaha is all about.

1. Bret Stephens is in such a tizzy it is actually almost enjoyable. Going after Plame and Giraldi this week he attacks damn near everyone else too that he has a problem with. He has problems with an awful lot of people. 

“I believe the thesis of “The Israel Lobby,” the 2007 book by Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer, is a sound one. The idea that a small group of (largely) Jewish-Americans manipulates Congress, the media and other levers of power and influence for the benefit of a malign Jewish state has no connection to previous anti-Semitic conspiracy theories alleging the same thing.”

Of course he does not believe this, he is implying, if not outright saying, that Walt and Mearsheimer are anti-Semites for documenting the obvious. I remember well being told by one of my US senators to my face that the power of the Israeli lobby in Congress is overwhelming, but I digress. 

“I believe Valerie Plame, the former C.I.A. operative and fading liberal celebrity, when she says she missed the anti-Semitic “undercurrents” in an article she called “provocative, but thoughtful.” I believe her when she says she “zeroed in on the neocon criticism” but missed the article’s more prejudicial elements.”

Yes, and we here at Mantiq al-Tayr believe that neocon zionists want what’s best for America and the world. 

“The article was titled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.” It uses variants of the word “Jew” 22 times. The word “neocons” appears only twice. I believe Plame is telling the truth when she says the subtlety was lost on her.”

2. Back in April of 2003 – don’t you miss the good old days when wars for Israel were still fresh? But I digress. Anyway, as I was saying, back in April of 2003 Haaretz published an article entitled “White Man’s Burden.” The article opens with the following sentence.

“The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history.” 

Okay, I can hear you all saying “Mantiq, wtf does this mean?” 

It means, ladies and gentlemen, that Phil Giraldi had to be fired from The American Conservative and demonized by exactly the same people he named in his now famous article entitled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.”  In the article he gets very specific and of course does not say that all Jews do this. He goes after the neocon cockroaches that infest the corridors of power in the US and who put Israel’s interests ahead of those of the US as casually as Trump talks trash about women. 

The uproar this is causing is, well, informative. 

He had the audacity to say that these neocons are usually Jews and that such people should recuse themselves from, among other things, getting the US into all sorts of shitty wars that do not benefit the United States. For his efforts he has been vilified by exactly the same people he was calling out. What a surprise.  The American Conservative should be ashamed. 

It’s really too bad Phil doesn’t have a book out right now, because he has gotten so much negative publicity that he’d probably make the Jerusalem Washington New York Times Post best seller list. But once again, I digress.

Here’s one of the really awful things he noted:

“One might also add that neocons as a group were founded by Jews and are largely Jewish, hence their universal attachment to the state of Israel. They first rose into prominence when they obtained a number of national security positions during the Reagan Administration and their ascendancy was completed when they staffed senior positions in the Pentagon and White House under George W. Bush. Recall for a moment Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, and Scooter Libby. Yes, all Jewish and all conduits for the false information that led to a war that has spread and effectively destroyed much of the Middle East. Except for Israel, of course. Philip Zelikow, also Jewish, in a moment of candor, admitted that the Iraq War, in his opinion, was fought for Israel.”

Let me digress for a moment. You might recall that Zelikow was executive director of the commission that looked into 9/11.

And it might even be true that when Zelikow was made executive director of that commission no one knew that he had been:

(Note to Shas Party members,  all red highlighting is by today’s guest editor, Mulaykah al-Alamaniyya.)

the author of a very important document issued by the White House in September 2002 that really turned military doctrine on it’s head and said that the United States could become involved in preemptive war, preemptive defense. That we could attack a nation that didn’t pose an immediate military threat to this country. And obviously in September of 2002 it sure appeared that that document was being written with one target in mind: Iraq.”

Isn’t that pretty fucking interesting? All the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr thought so too. 

Let me summarize this for all the brain-dead Jerusalem Washington New York Times Post readers.  The very guy who said out loud that the Iraq war was fought for Israel is the guy who drafted a White House document justifying preemptive war and of which Iraq was the target. 

But it gets worse, with Zionism it always does. 

End of digression.

One of the Israeli PR specialists Giraldi named was Bret Stephens whose pro-Israel resume is longer than long dong silver’s (fake) dong. 

Among Stephen’s accomplishments was heading the Jerusalem Post back in 2002. As this largely fawning article notes:

“He began his career at The Wall Street Journal, but moved to Israel at age 28 to become editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post in 2002 during a tumultuous time. He led the Post through the worst years of the second intifada, pointed it in a neoconservative direction . . .”

This article points out that he left that position to come to back to the US in order to advocate for Israel. 

“One of the reasons I left The Wall Street Journal for the Post was because I felt the Western media was getting the story wrong,” Stephens said. “I do not think Israel is the aggressor here. Insofar as getting the story right helps Israel, I guess you could say I’m trying to help Israel.”

So that’s his job – advocating for Israel. Keep that in mind whenever you read him or even worse, hear him. 

Also, keep this in mind: for Stephens, anti-Zionism and anti-semitism are synonyms

as he says here:

Stephens: We should remember that anti-Semitism is a mutating virus that changes forms to suit the times. The hatred of Jews based on religious reasons became anti-Semitism based on racial reasons, which in our day has become anti-Zionism based on national reasons. But each of them are expressions of the same hatred.

This is complete, total, unadulterated, Zionist Bullshit and it is designed to prevent Americans from understanding a key ingredient regarding “Why America acts so goddamn crazy.” If you happen to notice what the fuck is going on and point it out to others, you are subject to attacks which among other things point to the accuracy of your thesis. 

Do you want war with Iran? Giraldi doesn’t either and he is aware that the US war machine isn’t just composed of neocons in government and the media, though he does not list all of the culprits here. 

“To be sure, the urging to strike Iran comes from many quarters, to include generals in the Administration who always think first in terms of settling problems through force, from a Saudi government obsessed with fear over Iranian hegemony, and, of course, from Israel itself.”

He then writes:

“But what makes the war engine run is provided by American Jews who have taken upon themselves the onerous task of starting a war with a country that does not conceivably threaten the United States. They have been very successful at faking the Iranian threat, so much so that nearly all Republican and most Democratic congressmen as well as much of the media seem to be convinced that Iran needs to be dealt with firmly, most definitely by using the U.S. military, and the sooner the better.”

Stephens likes the idea of bombing Iran. And I guess to prove his point that it isn’t just neocon Jews who push for this, he did he did a masterful job convincing a bunch of  zionist Christian morons to work to undermine the nuclear deal with Iran, a deal which he wanted killed. The outfit is John Hagee’s “Christians United For Israel” and Stephens spoke candidly with them as he most likely didn’t think his comments would see the light of day. However, Glenn Greeenwald published the entire content of Stephens conference call with CUFI which I just realized is IFUC spelled backwards. 

The single most amazing thing about Stephens’ discussion with the CUFI folks was the utter obsequiousness of the CUFI board members when they spoke to Stephens and his awareness that he was in complete control. He was telling the goyim what Israel wanted them to think about Iran and they just sucked it up. It’s worth listening to for that reason alone. 

As Greenwald notes in the article – and he is speaking strictly about neocons:

They want to keep Iran isolated and demonized and ultimately to depose its leadership through war or other means of aggression. They hate the Iran deal precisely because it’s likely to avert that aggression and normalize the world’s relations with that country, making the war they’ve long craved much less likely.”

Amen, brother, Amen.

3. I’ll close with this:

Eli Clifton wrote this report about Bret Stephens speaking at a Tikvah Fund gathering, Stephens had this to say about many of his fellow Jews:

Thank God I was born a Jew because otherwise I’d be a raging anti-Semite… [be]cause I tear my hair out all the time at my fellow Jews. But rare is it in history that we’ve been blessed to live in a country where we can say anything we want and actually get away with it. And it is a scandal, it seems to me, if we fail to live up to the promise of our American citizenship to do all we can to assure the survival of the Jewish state and the Jewish people.

Clifton’s comments on the above comment are worth taking a look at. 

4. Okay it’s video time.  This one remains one of my all time favorites. 

 

 

 

Act for Israel

 

screen-shot-2017-03-04-at-9-33-38-am

1. Rep. Ron DeSantis (Likud, FL) sure does love Israel. He really loves Israel.  This former legal advisor to Seal Team 6 and haunter of the Joint Task Force in GTMO – and lover of GTMO as far as I can tell, but he loves Israel even more – but I am already digressing.

Okay, where was I?

Yes, this lover of Israel and frequent defender of Israel is doing something right now, and I mean literally right fucking now (RFN) that I want to get to. In a minute.

First let me tell you about the letter he wrote to Trump using his own US Israeli Congressional stationary, telling President to be Trump that he had damn fucking well better move the US Israeli embassy to Jerusalem. You can read the whole letter here on Desantis’ website. Please do note that DeSantis initiated the letter and then got 101 other Israel-suck ups to sign it. Here is an excerpt: (Note to Shas Party members, red-highlighting is done by today’s guest editor Ron Desantis:)

“During your campaign, you made a forceful pledge to move our American (sic) embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the State of Israel.”

Hmmm. Let me digress. Since when do we pay for government officials to engage in metaphysics talking about the eternalness of anything? And if it is the capital of all Jews, then does DeSantis think that Jews should be loyal to Israel first – as he is even though he is not a Jew?

Anyway, the letter continues:

We write to express support for this policy and to urge you to take swift action to relocate our (sic) embassy to Jerusalem as soon as you take office. 

Israel is one of the United States’ closest allies and stands alone in the Middle East for its commitment to democratic ideals. Moving the embassy will strenghtn the unique alliance between Israel and the United States and send a clear message to the world that we support Israel in recognizing Jerusalem as its eternal capital.

You can read the whole letter here and see if your congressional rep was one of the signatories.

Not long after that letter was written DeSantis brought up the issue again in this really weird press release.

Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (Likud-06), Chairman of the National Security Subcommittee, today convened an Advisory Council for Israel and Middle East Security. Its membership of advisors from Florida and around the country will explore ways to repair U.S.–Israel relations and combat security threats facing Israel and the United States.

“With the pending relocation of our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and the arrival of the Trump administration, we have entered a new era in American-Israeli relations and have a great opportunity to chart a productive course,” DeSantis said. “My subcommittee conducts oversight over embassy issues and I have been active in highlighting the dangers of the BDS movement and the threat posed by militant Islam. I have no doubt that we will have a lot on our plate moving forward, and having an esteemed group of advisors willing to share their keen insights on these issues will be a great help to me. I thank them for their willingness to assist my efforts to support our friend and ally Israel.”

Nice how he got in the phrase “militant Islam” isn’t it. And of course the anti-BDS theme is there  too along with the let’s move the US embassy to Jerusalem verbiage.

And just to make sure we get the point, the document ends with this:

The Advisory Council for Israel and Middle East Security will help develop policies to help facilitate a more productive American posture in the Middle East, which includes moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.

The Adisory Council is a pretty damn long list. Funny how the House’s National Security Subcommittee is in need of an “Advisory Council for Israel and Middle East Security” at all, and second that that council needs to be comprised of only people from Florida with Middle Eastern sounding names. Clearly a bunch of militant Islamists  have taken over the advisory council.

Jason Lyons, Boca Raton, FL, Chairman

Dr. Scot Ackerman, Jacksonville, FL

Richard Brody, Jacksonville, FL

Phil Cohen, Miami, FL

Dr. David Diamond, Orlando, FL

Farley Weiss, Boca Raton, FL

Okay, I can hear you all bitching and moaning “Mantiq, look he has to be this way, he’s in Florida and there you have to be anti-Castro and pro-Israel, though not necessarily in that. order. It’s not like he is advocating that Israel keep the Golan Heights.”

Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) issued the following statement of support for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s position that the Golan Heights will remain under the control of Israel:

“For almost 50 years, Israel has maintained peace in the Golan Heights region and I support Prime Minister Netanyahu’s position that Israel should maintain control. If Israel were to cede the Golan Heights the area would become a magnet for terrorism and would give Israel’s enemies a launching pad from which to wage war against the Jewish state.  U.S. policy should support the Prime Minister’s position and recognize the Golan Heights as a part of Israel.”

Now you won’t find this on his website, or on his twitter feed, but Ronny boy is at this very minute on an official National Security Subcommittee-sponsored trip  to Jerusalem to investigate moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. It’s a short trip, just 24 hours and Desantis and his committee seem to be very quiet about it. But when he gets back he’ll continue to put the pressure on Trump.

Please let him know how much you appreciate his working for Israel. Go here:

https://desantis.house.gov/media-center

and you can look in the upper right hand corner for links to his social media sites.

Interesting enough, Rep.  Dennis Ross (Israel Home, Fl), who is reported to also be going on the trip is said to have denied that he is going according to this Press TV link.

2. Okay it is video time. Watch this unbelievable suck up to Israel. Can there be a bigger whore than this guy? Probably, but he does set the bar pretty high. Please make sure there are no children in the room when you watch this.

ِTime for a make up call.

 

Have you registered a Muslim today?

1.A number of the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr working hand in hand with Vladimir Putin managed to hack into the Trump campaign files and we found the questionnaire Israel is putting together for Muslim registry 2.0. We downloaded the file, changed some of the answers, added a question or two, uploaded it to the same place and replaced the old file. The new version is below for you to go ahead and fill out.  You can then just send it to the Israeli embassy in Washington, DC, or you can wait and send it to the “American” embassy in Jersualem c/o David Friedman.

2. Friedman and Greenblatt’s position paper on Israel.  To buy this horrible thing you have to completely close your eyes to reality.

Just one highlight.  Note to Shas party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Ibn Mulaikah.

“The U.S. should view the effort to boycott, divest from, and sanction (BDS) Israel as inherently anti-Semitic and take strong measures, both diplomatic and legislative, to thwart actions that are intended to limit commercial relations with Israel, or persons or entities doing business in Israeli areas, in a discriminatory manner. The BDS movement is just another attempt by the Palestinians to avoid having to commit to a peaceful co-existence with Israel. The false notion that Israel is an occupier should be rejected.

3. Well it’s video time. Not sure what to do here.  How about 3 minutes and 22 seconds of insanity from a Navy Seal turned Tea Party speaker about the Communist and Muslim menace? It is one of the more disgusting things I’ve seen and unfortunately due to the nature of the blogging I have to see lots of disgusting things.  Tell you what, I’ll just give you the link to the Loon Watch article about this guy and that article also has the video and you can watch it if you want to make yourself sick.

http://www.loonwatch.com/2014/01/former-navy-seal-ben-smith-obama-is-a-muslim-drops-quran-to-the-ground/

Hmmmm. I can hear you all saying “Mantiq, that was disgusting, please give us something uplifting and do it fast.”

Okay.  Each year at this time I link to this video. Even if you have seen it before, you will enjoy it. The music is lovely too. I also love the default start frame of this video. Reminds me of two who are very dear, but I digress.

 

 

 

It’s Going To Get Much Worse . . .

 

great-f

“This study is the result of months of analysis, discussion and drafting by a group of top security policy experts concerned with the preeminent totalitarian threat of our time: the legal-political-military doctrine known within Islam as shariah.”

1. Former CIA director, eternal Israel-firster, hater of Muslims, co-author of the document from which the quote above comes, and naturally a Donald Trump advisor, James Woosely, was interviewed on CBC yesterday.  The very first thing he said was that the US needs to get back to sucking up to Israel – as if that had actually been stopped in any real way.  (Note to Shas Party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Jesus Christ.) 

Carol Off: What might you recommend to Mr. Trump to take on as a priority?

James Woolsey: Well, I think one of the first priorities is to get straight who our friends and our adversaries are. And I think President Obama got that mixed up.

I think it’s important, for example, to let the world know that Israel is our friend and Iran is not a country that we have a nice, sound nuclear agreement with.

It’s a country which we have signed, in my opinion, the worst international accord the United States has ever signed and Iran will be a nuclear power within a relatively few years and we’re going to have to figure out how to deal with that.

Yup, Israel is his first priority.  Jesus Christ. Oops sorry Jesus.  

Now I can hear you all saying – “Hey there Mantiq, he didn’t say that Trump would cancel the agreement with Iran, so isn’t that good?”

Who the fuck knows.  He did add in the interview that “This agreement has to go.”  I’m sure you will also find the following quote from him about Iran utterly reassuring. 

CO: So if you’re shaking that foreign policy stick, in which directions and which countries might you think Mr. Trump should shake it?

JW: Iran needs to be kept from being the world’s leading terrorist state. We need to move them back several places in that ranking by undermining their terrorist affiliations and actions and financing and all the rest and some of that can be done overtly and some of it needs to be done covertly. I think Iran is one of the greatest dangers to world peace.

The US is bombing seven countries at present and Iran is the greatest threat to world peace? Carol Off should have just fucking hung up the phone. But I digress.

Keep in mind that this person has co-authored a book with the utterly ridiculous title of  “Shariah: The Threat to America” which even the FBI thinks is bullshit

Actually it isn’t a book.  It is a “report” written by, and I am not making this up:

“Team B II” of the right-wing conspiracy oriented Center for Security Policy.  The members of the team read like a list of who’s who in the land of Muslim hating.  Here are some of the members of Team B II.

Jerry Boykin 

Stephen Coughlin

Frank Gaffney

John Guandolo

David Yershalmi

Plus many more utter nut cases.

Will Woosely be but in a position to persecute Muslims in the Trump administration (and I use the term administration quite loosely)?

CO: Would you accept a position if he offered as the national security adviser?

JW: This is an extremely important set of jobs. And I’m not going to get in here and campaign for one. But anybody who is offered something along the lines of one of the two or four top jobs in the government dealing with foreign policy and national security, would have to be honoured.

So this war mongering Israel-firster could become the National Security Advisor.  Mike Flynn, a sitting board member of the astonishingly bigoted Act for America outfit might also be in the new administration.  This article mentions he could become Defense Secretary or the National Security Advisor.  I’m sure he and Woosely would be delighted to work together. The same report mentions that Reince Priebus could have a job in that administration.  Here is Priebus demonstrating his allegiance to Israel. 

“The truth is, America’s security interests are intertwined with Israel’s, and when President Obama does a disservice to Israel, he does a disservice to our country as well.”

It is going to get much worse, with Zionism it always does. 

2. Well it’s video time.  Here is a very recent message from Trump to Israel.  Note to Shas Party members, not only is it short you will like it very much. Very much. 

A Kiss With a Spell?

hillary(Hillary kissing Suha Arafat and really pissing off tons of assholes)

1. As usual, Zionism has both wings of the Demopub party firmly under its control.   This probably explains also why Hillary Clinton isn’t in jail for the email scandal and appears to be on some sort of mental and physical health life-support system. 

In the meantime the person who will probably win the election is shouting loud and clear that Israel will be “destroyed” unless he is elected president.  You know, if that were actually true then maybe we here at Mantiq al-Tayr might actually vote for Hillary.  But I digress.  (We’ll get back to Hillary in a minute.)

Yes, unless you elect Donald Trump president Israel will be destroyed by Iran.  Trump’s Iran-bashing and fear mongering is worthy of any candidate who has ever run for the position of Israel’s Vice President for American Affairs.  

Here’s a nice quote from the article in Hahahaharetz: (Note to Shas Party members and Trump supporters, red highlighting is being done by someone who will be indicated further below, keep reading.)

Last year’s deal, which trades sanctions relief for a nuclear rollback, “is going to destroy Israel – unless I get elected,” Trump told Cleveland-area labor leaders on Monday, according to The Columbus Dispatch. “Then Israel will be just fine.”

Now the bat-shit crazy (I love that term, a friend of mine uses it to describe someone in my former work environment every chance she gets and for good reason, but I digress) former DIA chief and current advisor to Trump, Mike Flynn – who is now a board member of the also bat-shit crazy and viciously anti-Muslim “Act for America” outfit – was at this meeting. According to Hahahaharetz he asked Trump what he would do about the deal.  Trump didn’t say he would cancel it (we thank Khoda for that) but he did describe it  in ways that no doubt Act for America would approve. 

But let’s get back to Hillary.  Right now she’s got the backing of tons of Zionist evil-doers of just about every stripe – and star.  And goy does she say the right things about how fucking wonderful Israel is and how it is better than a gefilte-fish pizza on matzah bread with a stinking load of Israeli hummus on top. 

But deep down inside I suspect she actually can’t stand Israel.  How’s this quote from 1998?

“I think that it will be in the long-term interest of the Middle East for Palestine to be a state, to be a state that is responsible for its citizens’ well-being, a state that has responsibility for providing education and health care and economic opportunity to its citizens,” she said, responding to a question about why she had referred to “Palestine,” a country that does not yet exist.”

The article goes on to mention this event: ((Note to Shas party members, red highlighting is being done by today’s bat-shit crazy guest editor my friend likes to talk about.)

“The next year, Clinton again raised eyebrows during a trip to the Middle East. She attended a speech at which Suha Arafat, the wife of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, accused Israel of using poisonous gas against Palestinians. Despite the controversial remarks, Clinton kissed Suha on the cheek, as is customary in the region.”

I remember those days when she was doing stuff like that. Mike Piper used to say that this was tantamount to “pulling out a switchblade in the middle of a fist fight” because at the time her hubby was really taking in on the chin.  

And she sure got criticized by all of the likely suspects as the article I’ve linked to points out. It’s well worth reading to review her ability to hold one position one day and its polar opposite the next.  A very American trait which she shares with many other members of our political prostitute class. 

But here’s what I find interesting about all of this. That email scandal that we all know about – and for which (and no doubt for many other things) she should be in jail – that scandal in and of itself does not seem to bother her legion of Israel-firster supporters.  This is no surprise since US security means nothing to them at all outside of Zionism’s ability to use America as a host for its parasitic ambitions. No, what seems to bother them is that in those emails she reveals yet again her affinity with a well-known and extremely well-connected Jewish journalist whom Shmuely Boteach really really does not like, not at all.  Not even just a teensy weensy tiny fucking bit. And frankly, if Boteach does not like you, then you must be doing something right, but I digress. Boteach doesn’t like this person’s daddy very much either. 

BTW, Boteach has a son who serves in the IDF. But I digress.

The daddy in this case is Sidney Blumenthal who has been out of government for many years and who is not supposed to have access to classified  information.  However, this fact, according to this report, appears not to have prevented him from lifting verbatim from highly classified intelligence reports and emailing this stuff to Hillary on an unclassified system. But once again I digress.

And of course Boteach was really pissed off about this.  Well, actually I haven’t seen him write about it at all.  What we know did piss him off is that Blumenthal senior, when not sending Hillary classified information that he should  not have access to, often sent Hillary links to articles by his son Max and that Hillary replied to those emails showing her appreciation for Max’s journalistic talents.  Boteach’s problem with this is that Max is very often very critical of the only thing in the world that really matters. Israel.  Boteach is bat-shit crazy for Israel and bat-shit pissed at Max whom he accuses of “rabid anti-Semitism”.

So, we have a racist billionaire who spouts the most vile Israeli propaganda but who is not so popular with most of the Zioinist neocons whose insanity he supports running against a bat-shit sick woman who should be in jail and who is supported by left-wing and right-wing Zionist billionaires and millionaires many of whom suspect that deep down inside she can’t stand them.

What a fucking mess. 

And it will get worse, with Zionism it always does. 

2. Okay it is already video time.  Here’s Boteach praising Trump and ranting about Max Blumenthal and generally just foaming at the mouth about everything.  Even the slimy Boteach has had to backtrack a bit on the Trump worship because Boteach – surprise surprise – supports immigration to the US and doesn’t want to be seen as hating people of Latino origin.  Nonetheless this video is a scream.   I love how he cares so much for the Syrian population.  He also makes it clear that he “will support the best candidate for Israel.”  That pretty much sums up what’s going on folks – and not just with Boteach. 

 

And here’s Coughlan again. Not always the best taste but worth a good listen. 

A kiss with a spell? (And yes, we here at Mantiq al-Tayr happen to like Tom Delonge.)

 

CVE and the Violent Jewish Extremist Vote

 

Revolution

Screen shot from this interview.

1. ”In fact, most Muslims suspect they were set up only to make Muslims look bad,” Hooper said. ”We just have very deep suspicions. They say such outrageous, irresponsible things that it almost seems like they’re doing it to smear Islam.”

CVE.  Probably most of you have never heard of it.  It stands for “Countering Violent Extremism” but in practice it means “Fucking with Muslims for Money.”  It’s become quite an industry – sort of main stream Islamophobia-light –  and it is filled with more carpetbaggers in and outside of government – many  of them move seamlessly between government jobs and jobs for universities or corporations – per square foot than was Atlanta in 1866. The CVE world is abuzz this week.

Let me ask you something:

What would an organization whose board members include Richard Allen (of Iran-Contra fame), Cofer Black (who somehow managed to fuck up stopping the 9/11 attacks and then did such great work with Blackwater), Edwin Meese III (yes, that Edwin Meese, of Wedtech and also of Iran-Contra fame), Michael Chertoff (the guy who loves to have your genitalia radiated at airports, co-authored the Patriot Act and succeeded Tom Ridge as head of Fatherland Security) and big pro-Israel investor Tom Ridge (and the first head of Fatherland Security) be expected to do?  Well, maybe that’s an unfair question, because there are so many horrible choices they could make and since these guys probably don’t get to  into the weeds anyway.  But still.   Well, that organization has just hired Joseph Leonard Cohen’s partner in crime, Jesse Morton, (pictured above) to join its research staff at George Washington University’s Center for Cyber and Homeland Security.  Btw, for those who are unaware, Cyber is another big thing in government and the private sector at present.  The feds and the corporations are psycho for cyber these days as they drain your pockets in the name of “Homeland Security.”  If you see “Cyber” in some outfit’s title, beware. But I digress.

Morton is now the darling of the media.  This interview with the CBC is a perfect example.

Ibrahim Cooper’s quote above was about Morton and his nutty “Revolution Muslim” website which appealed to about 12.3 people on the planet but which nonetheless managed to get considerable attention from CNN and of course from CVE specialists while making Muslims look absolutely bat shit crazy. One of those CVE dudes who actually did a study of the website is now Morton’s boss.

Cooper may be wrong regarding what he implied, but good grief.  And now one of these Muslim Revolution guys is at GW, having gone from making Islam look ridiculous from the inside to now financially benefitting off his past while sustaining Islamophobia-light’s obsession with “radicalization.” Now according to this article he won’t be teaching but will be doing “research.”   His page on the Cyber thingy’s website is worth a look at.

More on this stuff at a later date.  Please play around on the Cyber thingy’s website and look at who is there.  There is definitely money to be made if you believe in the religion of radicalization – radicalization which pretty much applies only to Muslims.  Funny how that is.

2. In the meantime, Donald Trump, Islamophobe par excellence, continues to suck up to Israel.  He is fresh from a 25K per plate dinner fund raiser run by an Islamofascist named Saul Fox. According to what is most likely the target of every intelligence agency on the planet, The Intercept:

(Note to Shas party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Haifa Wehbe).

Fox is the donor behind Children of Israel LLC, whose $884,000 in contributions has made it the second-most generous “ghost corporation” in the 2016 cycle. This election has seen a surge in “ghost corporations,” the term used for businesses that appear to exist solely to shield the identity of individuals who want to put money into the U.S. political process.”

Saul loves Israel and he is really into archeology.  Here is his dedication speech for the Archeological Garden of Knesset.  Note the pronouns.

“My family feels extraordinarily fortunate to have been asked by the Israel Antiquities Authority to assist in a small way with the construction of this magnificent archeological garden, truly an un-walled museum, exemplifying the history of the land of Israel, here in the very midst of Jerusalem, our sacred ancient capital and the holiest of cities, affixed to the Knesset the most significant Jewish edifice of our era where we, the children of Israel, having returned from compelled dispersion to liberate and resettle the Promised Land and having reestablished Israel as a nation among the nations, through prodigious and arduous efforts and sacrifice, democratically and righteously govern our own affairs.”

But I digress.

Saul is loaded, he’s hard-core for Israel, considers himself one of the “children of Israel,” created a ghost corporation called Children of Israel, LLC and he is backing Trump – the guy who used to say he didn’t need money from rich Jews.

In the meantime Trump has quite a campaign team in Israel.  It turns out that there are between 200,000 and 300,000 Jewish votes there that he is trying to get and according to this article about 70 per cent of them vote center and right, so they might be helpful in making Trump the next IVPFAA.  And his campaign team seems to be entirely composed of right wingers.

One of them is: “Tzvika Brot, the newly appointed director of the Republican Party campaign team in Israel, is a former journalist with close ties to the right-wing Likud party.”

But of course.  And I love this:

Because many American citizens live in the Jewish settlements, he (Brot) said, the upcoming opening of the Trump campaign office in Ginot Shomron would be an important event. “We will have a special guest there,” he promised. “I can’t say who it will be, but it won’t be Trump.”

Funny how it is that “many American citizens” live in illegal settlements.  I’ve seen these people running around with their machine guns and intimidating the hell out of the local Palestinian population.

Ginot Shomron is in the West Bank.  It is an illegal Israeli settlement.  The Trump campaign is sending someone to an illegal settlement to get Americans who are in violation of international  law to rally behind Trump and to vote for him.  Seems to me that the whole lot of them should be arrested and sent to the ICC where they can compare notes with Hillary, but I digress.

It’s a goddamn shame that GWU Cyber and Homeland Security seems to have no interest in Countering Violent Jewish Extremism.  But Trump and the Republicans (and no doubt Hillary and the Dems) want that violent Jewish extremist vote.

3. Okay, it’s video time.

Let’s start off with Haifa.  It’s in London, wonder if Yasir al-Habib was there. 🙂

This second video is worth sitting back and listening to.  Really.    I’ve just come across this person’s youtube videos – he even has one that deals in part with Revolution Muslim and also Adam Gadahn that is worth a listen as well.  In the video below he talks about two assholes who really do need to be counter radicalized.
