Stealth Zionism

Over-priced, over-hyped, tax-payer funded

1. From Howard Phillips’ blog in 2007:

REMEMBRANCE OF A CHARMING ISRAELI SOCIALIST

In 1982, my wife, Peggy, and I visited Israel as part of a delegation which included Mr. and Mrs. Morton Blackwell, William A. Rusher, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Weyrich, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Truluck, Dr. and Mrs. James P. Lucier, and several other conservatives.

Prior to departure, we were briefed by Benjamin Netanyahu, then the Israeli Ambassador to the United States.

While in Israel, we visited Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea, Jericho, Macpelah, and many other historic venues.

One of those whom we met was the legendary mayor of Jerusalem, a charming socialist by the name of Teddy Kollek. Mayor Kollek died recently at the age of 95.

This post should have been a red-flag to all conservatives who don’t worship at the Israeli alter, offering up their wealth and sons to the graven image that is the state of Israel.

2. Here’s an interesting email that I am printing with the permission of Mark Glenn and Mark Dankof. Red highlights are mine.

Mr. Kenneth R. Timmerman
Accuracy in Media

RE: Your article entitled “Tehran TV Loves Ron Paul” at http://www.aim.org/special-report/tehran-tv-loves-ron-paul/

Dear Mr. Timmerman:

I read with fascination your recent piece in which you played Israel’s little slut and slandered Ron Paul, Mark Dankof and Phil Giraldi, all true American heroes.

I’d love to have you on my program so that we could set the record straight on this. Are you man enough to do it, or do you engage in the typically-Zionist way of fighting, which is to sucker-punch someone, making sure you have a clear path of escape after you do it?

We will also be contacting Howard Phillips, Conservative Caucus chairman in Washington, D. C., to get his take on this and the manner in which Mark Dankof was specifically libeled by him in your article. We will also be asking Mr. Phillips on the record whether or not he agrees with your treasonous position that Ron Paul is ‘un-American.’

Be rest assured, whether you appear on the program or not, we will be covering you, what you wrote, and what a worm you are for a dangerous foreign power. We will have on with us high-ranking members of the US intelligence community who have shared with us information about you and your past dealings with Israel.

We anxiously await your reply, Kenneth Pollard Timmerman.

The Ugly Truth

3. “So the Baptist fuck wants money,” Greenspun growled, as he pushed the bag over to Joel. “Remember, this comes from the state of Israel. Don’t you ever forget it.”

Hi goys and girls. The above statement is NOT what I’m talking about when I talk about Stealth Zionism. It the kind of Zionism we are all quite familiar with known in Bumfuck Idaho and here at Mantiq al-Tayr as “‘Fuck you’ Zionism”.

The guy who called then Democratic Presidential candidate Jimmy Carter the “Baptist fuck” was Hank Greenspun, who recently was discussed in an article by Alexander Cockburn which is all over the Internet. Imagine the uproar if some Muslim said such a thing. But I digress.

Cockburn’s article is well worth reading because it shows Zionist Jewish figures controlling political presidential candidates back in 1976 and that control is even greater today as you can tell not just from reading Cockburn’s article but from reading damn near anything else not found in the mainstream pre$$ since that time.

4. Israel isn’t in control of just the Democrats and the Republicans. No, that would be too easy. And since they have so damn much surplus money, they like to spread it around.

As I wrote some time ago to a well known patriot, if you want to meet some nice Zionist Jewish girls, go to a local meeting about Palestinian rights. That’s stealth Zionism with a lower case “s”.

Thus it is no surprise to see that small political parties and other fringe political entities that fancy themselves as anti-establishment are also infiltrated. I’ve watched this first hand and very recently Mark Dankof was blindsided by Stealth Zionism.

The Conservative Caucus, founded by Howard Phillips, appears to be Zionism in stealth form. The political party most closely affiliated with The Conservative Caucus is the Constitution Party, founded, surprise surprise, by Howard Phillips.

Interestingly enough, if you go to the Caucus’ website, you will find precious little about Israel pro or con, but you will find every other hot button knee-jerk conservative issue, plus lots of dislike for Obama (even a stopped clock is right twice a day).

Yet Phillips loves to hang out with out and out Zionists. Mark Dankof, supremely pissed off by Phillips comments about him referred to above, gives his side of the story here. Lots of Phillipian-Zionist connections.

On the other hand, Phillips, according to this link (which I will also talk about at the end of this post) is said to have resigned from the YAF after the YAF kicked Ron Paul off of its advisory board due to Paul’s position on foreign policy. Score one for Phillips.

Here’s one association Mark hasn’t yet commented on. Phillips helped work to get Clinton impeached by appealing, along with Larry Klayman, to then Rep. Bob Barr (Likud, Georgia) who then actually drew up articles of impeachment. Now Klayman wants Obama impeached.

Okay, I can hear you all now bleating “Hey, Mantiq, who doesn’t want to impeach Obama?” Fair question. Here’s one of the main reasons, according to Klayman, that Obama should be impeached:

“Third, there is Obama’s visceral hatred and subversion of the state of Israel, whose national security interests are so closely tied to our own. His recent invitation to the Muslim Brotherhood, the grand daddy of terrorist groups bent on destroying the Jewish state, to join the new Egyptian government not only amounts to a dagger in the side of Israeli security, but American security as well. Without a strong and secure Israel, American strategic interests, particularly in the Middle East, will be significantly harmed.”

Oh, and here’s another reason Klayman want’s Obama impeached:

“Fourth, Obama continues to take no action to remove the neo-Nazi mullahs in Iran who are building nuclear weapons not only to destroy Israel but to further worldwide Muslim rule and domination over Christians and Jews.”

In his ludicrous article, Klayman lists four reasons to impeach Obama. 2 of them revolve around Israel. That should be a red flaq even to Shas Party members. Nothing about stopping our horrible illegal wars. Nothing. On the contrary, Klayman, one of Phillips bedfellows, wants more wars for Israel. I hope that if Phillips ever does agree to debate Dankof that Dankof will ask Phillips what he thinks about US support for Israel and for Israel’s wars and constant war mongering.

If you really want to have some fun, read Klayman’s article entitled “I am an Israeli

5. Phillips was involved in the founding of William Buckley’s outfit, Young Americans for Freedom, back in 1960 – and that too should have been a warning to everyone that the “conservative” movement was Zionist infested to the nth degree. Lots of Phillips associates have YAF connections as you can see from the links above in Phillips post about his trip to Israel. Mark Dankof has this pretty much figured out and in this essay he paints a chilling picture of the conservative movement. (Note: Young Americans for Freedom merged last year with the Young America’s Foundation and the two groups share the same website.)

The YAF just loves Israel. If you go to their hompage and do a search on Israel, you will see what I mean. The very first hit takes you to this article “How Conservative Activists Can Support Israel on Campus”. No surprise here since one of Buckley’s principal aids in founding the organization is an ex-communist Irgun-supporter rabid Zionist Jew who converted (hmm) to Catholicism with a long history of working for Zionist organizations. That would be Marvin Liebman. Let me digress for second.

One of those organizations that Liebman worked for was was called “The American League For a Free Palestine”. This bullshit organization was founded by a terrorist named Hillel Kook – a very active member in the Irgun involved, among other things, in shipping weapons to Irgun members. In 1946, Kook’s outfit produced a cute little play staring Marlon Brando. Really? Yup. It was called “A Flag is Born” and it was about how cool it would be if Israel were created in Palestine. Just thought you’d find that interesting. BTW, Kook’s “American” name is Peter Bergson.

The Z people pretty much have American politics covered, left, right, center and and fringe. This is why Ron Paul doesn’t stand a chance. It is also why people should vote for him.

6. Okay, it’s video time.

Now the first video is 25 minutes long. I wouldn’t make anyone, not even Shas Party members, watch this horrid clip from beginning to end. However, go to 16:28-19:00 and listen to Howard Phillips and Chris Bedford (the head of the YAF’s “New Guard” magazine) talk about Islamofacists, bombing Iran and supporting Israel.

Now this next video is more up to Shas Party standards in terms of length. It’s just twenty five seconds long. Watch the star of “A Flag is Born”.

I dedicate the video below to Mark Dankof

Traitors in the Mist

As American as . . .

1.  Well, I am pissed off at Mark Dankof. He  ruined my whole weekend last weekend. I mean, finally, after dealing with the struggles of the daily grind from Monday through Friday, I get home and have time to catch up on reading all the really cool blogs out there. I checked in with his site and I am sorry I did. Damn it Mark, can’t you just write about sports or something?  I hear the Houston Texans might not actually suck this year?  Plus the Cowboys had a big game against the Redskins – a team owned by Islamofacist Dan “Thanks for the money, Mort” Snyder.   Plus there’s all that college football in Texas. Also, the last I  heard, Alex Jones is still broadcasting Zionist Bullshit down there, isn’t he? Why don’t you write about him – you know, do a humor column or something?

But no. Mark’s had to post about a relatively new Jewish paramilitary organization coming soon to a neighborhood near you called Kitat Konenut which either means “rapid response units” or “paranoids with guns” or something like that.  This led me to do more research, and then more research, and before I knew it the weekend was almost over and I hadn’t even had a chance to watch one single football game!  Damn it Mark.

Also, my original intention was to do a post based on the question, “How is Hesham Tillawi different from Mark Glenn and Michael Collins Piper.” And instead, I’m now writing about another Zionist espionage group that pervades these United States. As you know, we’ve covered these groups here at Mantiq al-Tayr in the past. Well, guess what, there’s another one. I’m sure you are stunned. And guess what? It isn’t even Kitat Konenutcases or whatever these potentially quite dangerous morons are called. No, it is called Bnei Akiva – another Israeli operation aimed at recruiting traitors. And it sure does seem to love the Israeli military too.

What’s the connection between Kitat Konenutty and Bnei Akiva?  (Red highlighting is mine.)

“”Kitat Konenut New York is a Religious-Zionist organization and we hold the ideology of the Bnei Akiva movement which is Torah Veavoda. Members of the Kita are well trained and well armed with the best gear and weapons available. All guns are 100% legal and in compliance with all federal, state and local laws.”

Hmm, so Kitat’s founders, Yonatan Stern and Scott Brown claim on the one hand that their Kitat thingy is not political, but their ideology is that of the Bnei Akiva?  The Bnei Akiva folks specialize in getting Jews from literally dozens of countries around the world to be loyal to Israel.  That’s what they do, and they are very active in these increasingly less United States.

Founded in Palestine in 1929, Bnei Akiva is “the largest religious Zionist youth movement in the world.”

“Bnei Akiva’s twin ideals of Torah and Avodah loosely translate to religious commitment/study and work on the land of Israel. The movement has an anthem called Yad Ahim.[4] As a pioneering Zionist youth movement, Bnei Akiva believes that it is a central commandment of Judaism to emigrate to the land of Israel–“make Aliya“– and maintains that the future of the Jewish people is tied to the state of Israel.[5] Bnei Akiva feels that Jewish youth in the Diaspora should be educated to realize that the State of Israel needs them, and that they, in turn, need it.

In other words, be a traitor to the land of your birth and we’ll help you do it. And boy do they help.  And with your money since their operations, like those of so many Zionist recruitment operations, are tax deductable.

Bnei Akiva is the youth movement of the Mizrachi movement, which in the United States is embodied by the Religious Zionists of America organization – basically a bunch of very powerful Jewish fundamentalists whose very own website informs us that they are loyal to Israel first and foremost.  Their motto is:  “The land of Israel for the people of Israel according to the Torah of Israel.”

Now in case there is any doubt as to their real loyalties, their mission statement removes it completely.

“In a world of shifting commitments to Zionism, the RZA is the sole organization whose singular mission is to be an engine of pro-Israel advocacy, educational programming, and the driving force behind the organized leadership of the Orthodox community in its quest for activities on behalf of the State of Israel.

The youth movement is designed to make sure that Jewish kids maintain that very same loyalty. It’s all about creating religious fundamentalists committed to a foreign country.

You know, it just occurred to me that with all the bitching and moaning about Islam going on in this country and the great “concern” of so many so called intellectuals over the “radicalization” of Muslim youth in America, that the real concern here needs to be the radicalization of Jewish youth in America – a process that is so widespread, well-coordinated, well-funded and easy to document that the FBI should have no trouble arresting shitloads of traitors.  But I digress.

Anyway, I’m sure you all are just dying to know what great opportunities Bnei Akiva provides for young traitors at your expense.

Sit tight, get a barf bag, your favorite beverage, and read on.

First of all, this outfit is basically a cradle to college 24/7 operation.  “Bnei Akiva educational programming spans the year and the full range of ages, with members continuing from childhood through the college years, during the school year and during the summer.”

But let’s skip to high-school shenanigans for the sake of brevity.

“In 9 th grade, members of Bnei Akiva all over the world receive their Shevet name, the special name decided by Bnei Akiva in Israel that is assigned to their age-group. From then on, the Shevet becomes the center of a child’s Bnei Akiva chevra (social group), and after participating in our national summer programs after 10th and 11th grades, the Shevet gets to reunite at shabbatonim during the year.

“The final shabbaton of the year brings together Bnei Akivaniks from all over the country, from 9th-12th grade, for a shabbaton held at Moshava on the weekend of the Israel Day Parade in Manhattan. The shabbaton culminates with lively, enthusiastic participation in the Parade.”

We’ll get to the Moshava business in a second. I like how the shevet names come right from Israel. Also, isn’t it nice that there is an Israel Day Parade in New York? How fitting.

And when you are in twelfth grade you get to go to Israel and help the Israeli army.

“Bnei Akiva’s 12th grade winter Solidarity Mission to Israel was initiated two years ago by 3 Bnei Akiva members who were seniors in High School. Infused with the message of Bnei Akiva, these high school students decided it was time that they and their peers did something to show how much they care about Israel. The result was a 10 day mission that was filled not with sight seeing and tourism, but with packing sandbags for the Israeli Army in Sarel, making food packages for poor families in Yerushalayim, and more. Participants left not only with a tremendous sense of accomplishment, but with a renewed commitment to Am Yisrael [the nation of Israel-  and Eretz Yisrael [the land of Israel].”

And how cool is that?

Oh, they also note that the Solidarity Mission dudes recently spent “10 packed days volunteering at army bases, visiting hospitals, packaging food for the poor, interacting with victims of terror, and more.”

And if you go here, you can read all about how effective this brainwashing effort is.

And they have this Moshava thing – it’s four camps that they these kids go to every year. Nice camps too.

“The climax of the Bnei Akiva experiences of the year comes during the summer. 4 sleep-away camps in the US and Canada provide exciting, experiential Bnei Akiva education for 4-8 weeks. For children and teens up until 10 th grade, there’s nothing like a summer at Camp Moshava in Indian Orchard, PA , in Ennismore, Ontario , in Wild Rose, WI , and in Camp Stone in Sugar Grove, PA.

It’s only fitting that two of the four camps are in Pennsylvania – the land of nukes for Israel and where the state government has hired an Israeli company to spy on non-Jews living in the so-called Quaker state. They ought to call it the Spy State. And that worthless Zionist governor,  Ed Rendell, ought to be deported.  (Note: once the contract with the Israeli company was exposed, Rendell did cancel it.)

Then there is also the Mach Hach program which is six weeks for 10th graders in Israel. Guess what? You can sign up for the year 5771 trip today! Yes, and you can go to Israel for six weeks of complete indoctrination.

This video should inspire you:

No Zionist recruitment program could be without it’s holocaust section, and here you can read about how the holocaust is used to tie these kids even more directly to Israel.

They even time this trip so that the kids end up in Israel on Israel’s independence day clearly in order to have as huge a psychological impact as possible.

“From the intense emotion of Poland and Yom HaShoah [Holocaust Day], participants travel to Israel, learning about and experiencing the Jewish people’s triumphant, miraculous rebirth in Medinat Yisrael, culminating with a Yom Ha’Atzmaut [Israel’s independence day] celebration that won’t be soon forgotten.”

And there is just so much more. Go here and browse around.

One last thing on this subject: Remember those summer camps mentioned above? Well, here are some “innovative” things being done at the one that is in eastern Pennsylvania.

“Some of our most innovative ideas include:

  • Reliving the vote in the U.N. and the establishment of the State of Israel.
  • Building a ‘Time Machine” to bring luminaries from the time of the Rishonim.
  • Crossing the “Jordan” in the time of Joshua.
  • Re-enacting the siege of Jerusalem in 1948.
  • Creating and celebrating the diversity of peoples that live in Israel.
  • Treasure hunt using the Rashi from sections of the Torah read during the summer.
  • “Flying” the whole camp to the modern State of Israel. [Note to Shas Party members, they don’t actually fly there.]
  • Baking cookies in the shape of Medinat Yisrael.”

Hey readers, hope you get to enjoy those cookies. You’re paying for them.

2. So, I can  here you all asking, just what is it about Hesham Tillawi that makes him different from Michael Collins Piper, Mark Glenn, and Haifa Wehbe? (Hey, I didn’t mention Haifa Wehbe above, get her off your minds readers. Good grief.) You may be asking, is Hesham (pronounced Hgmbzqt) better looking? Taller? Funnier? Is it because he’s a Palestinian? (you are getting closer). Is it because he has a TV show?

No. Folks. Though no doubt the TV show does help.

Here’s the deal. Although Mark Glenn and Michael Collins Piper can be found via searches on the ADL’s website, Hesham Tillawi actually has his own dedicated ADL web page. Mark Glenn’s main page on the ADL site is just a sub-page on Hesham’s listed under Hesham’s connections with short-dark-skinned guys with nerdy glasses. Just kidding, it’s under Hesham’s “Extremist Affiliations” page.  Not even the throaty-voiced RBN nightime host and American Free Press writer Michael Collins Piper has his very own ADL-endorsed and sponsored page. No, to find the Piper, you have to search ADL’s site. But Hesham has his very own page. Click on the picture below and you’ll see how nicely that photo is framed on his ADL webpage.

Hesham (prounced Htfbvq) Tillawi

3. You know, it occurs to me that if Hesham were to shave his head, he’d look an awful lot like Stavros Flately.

Note: If this video does not make you laugh, you must be an Israeli settler. Also, to Shas Party members: the video is just a few minutes long, so it shouldn’t outlast your attention span. Also, it would help if you knew something about Riverdance first.

4. Okay all you students and lovers of Arabic, you will like this. There’s a new invention that makes learning the language so much easier and all the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr are profoundly disappointed that they did not think of it first.  It’s chewing gum. And below is proof positive that it works.

Clevon America is great. His vids are here. I’ll post more in the future.

Oh hell, I’ll do one more now. It’s a great game all you parents can play with your kids. Maybe they play it at the brainwashing camps run by Bnei Akiva. It’s called Gazapoly and it is not only great fun, it’s very educational.

5.  Now that’s enough fun and frolic.

“In five minutes flat we were all blown to hell.”

You know, it really sucks when you get forced to fight in somebody else’s wars. The Australians sure found this out during World War I at Gallipoli.  (This did not stop them from getting involved in Vietnam, but I digress).

Australians and New Zealanders recognise 25 April as a ceremonial occasion to reflect on the futility of war and to remember those who fought and lost their lives for their country. Commemorative services are held at dawn, the time of the original landing, mainly at war memorials in cities and towns across both nations. One of the traditions of Anzac Day is the ‘gunfire breakfast’ (coffee with rum added) which occurs shortly after many dawn ceremonies, and recalls the ‘breakfast’ taken by many soldiers before facing battle. Later in the day, ex-servicemen and ex-servicewomen meet and join in marches through the major cities and many smaller centres.”

If this video does not affect you, then you must be a neo-con trying to get us into more wars.

Charles Schumer (Likud, New York)

1. Before we get into the exposing of traitors section of today’s post, I want to point you all to one of the most interesting and intriguing podcasts we here at Manitq al-Tayr have heard in a long time.   All the tuyuur here are abuzz about it. Every Friday, RBN-exiles Mark Glenn and Mark Dankof do “The Ugly Truth” radio podcast together and this past Friday they hosted non-other than the great Michael Collins Piper, whom we here at Mantiq al-Tayr think should be either elected as president of the United States, or at least be put in charge of the ADL, which as far as we can discern is pretty much the same thing. Yes, yes, I know, the ADL job is really closer to say being Director of the CIA, but do you all out there really believe that the guy in the White House actually runs the country anyway?  But I digress.

The subject of the podcast is the Oklahoma City bombing of April 19, 1995 and the reasons Piper believes that Israel played an important role in it. The further you listen into the podcast the more interesting it gets.  Download this thing, listen to it and share it with friends. Hell, send a copy to Abe Foxman.

2. Now with that done, let’s take a quick look at Mantiq al-Tayr’s “Traitor of the Week.”  This week’s winner of a Golda Meir inflatable doll is US Knesset Senator Charles Schumer (Likud, NY), who has managed to outdo himself.  Last week this disgrace was sending a letter to Israeli Vice President for American Affairs (IVPFAA) Whatever His Name Is, demanding that he impose “crippling” sanctions on a country that is abiding by international law on issues related to nuclear energy because that’s what Israel wants.  This week though, he has gone even further.

Schumer appeared on the Nachum Segal ‘s radio program “Jewish Music in the AM” and proceeded to inform listeners that Schumer and his fellow Jews in the so-called US Congress are going to dictate US policy on Israel to Israel’s benefit.  Here’s one quote from Schumer.

“So I called up Rahm Emmanuel and I called up the White House and I said ‘If you don’t retract this statement you’re gonna hear me publically just blast you on this’ and of course they did retract it. And now what’s happened, and many of us are pushing back . . .”

We interrupted this quote (quotus interruptus) to highlight something.  What does the red-highlighted word “us” refer to in the quote above? As you shall see immediately below the “us” refers to Jews in Congress working with Schumer on Israel’s behalf.   Let’s resume the quote:

“And now what’s happened, and many of us are pushing back some of the Jewish members will be meeting with the president next week or the week after. We are saying ‘this has to stop, you have to have in terms of the negotiations you have to show Israel that it is not gonna be forced to do anything it doesn’t want to do and can’t do, and at the same time you have to show the Palestinians that they are not going to get their way by just sitting back and not giving it and not recognizing that there is a state of Israel.”

You can hear the short clip from YouTube below.

You can hear the whole interview here.

So Schumer’s Jews will be marching on the White House in a week or two and telling Obama’s Jews – Emmanuel, Axelrod, Ross and the rest, that the charade of there being a difference between the White House and the insane Netanyahu government must now come to a complete stop. And as this article makes clear, it really was a charade.

Oh, Schumer also claims, falsely, that the housing units which were the subject of the dispute were in “Israeli Jerusalem”.  No they were not, no matter what Israeli agents say about the matter, the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood, in its entirety, is illegal and is part of Palestinian land occupied and colonized by Israel. But “Israeli-Jerusalem” is code for “Israel will do whatever the hell it wants, so fuck you. Thank you.”

(Richard Silverstein has an interesting take on Ramat Shlomo.)

The White House fought back with courage that only a mother could love. Part of the Administration’s response was (and no I am not making this up, I wish I were)  “We have an unwavering commitment to the security of Israel and the Israeli people,” [White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs] said “You heard General Jones speak about that earlier in the week. We have said that from the beginning of the administration.”

That’s really standing up the Israelis, isn’t it? Now that ought to scare the shit out of the Israelis, right?

Actually goys and girls, it ought to scare the shit out of you. Hope you enjoy the coming war with Iran.

And here’s a shot of Charlie Schumer’s award.

3. About a year ago, we talked about the Pope’s visit to Jerusalem in part of his ongoing efforts to make the Roman Catholic Church look bad. He’s very good at this. Anyway, we noted that he had to meet with six “holocaust survivors” one of whom is Edward Mosberg who was then and still is under indictment for bribery and fraud.  Nonetheless, Mosberg was allowed to leave the US for Israel to hold hands with the Pope. Well, it seems he’s back. Still under indictment, but somehow, although three others have long since pleaded guilty to Mosberg-related schemes, Mosberg’s trial continues to be postponed. In a moment, our legal birdies at Mantiq al-Tayr will offer Mosberg some legal advice, but I just have to mention a couple of things.

First of all, Mosberg and his buddies all live in, surprise surprise, New Jersey (Motto “We have more crooks than Maryland). And apparently, in New Jersey, there is so damn much crime that the judges there don’t seem to care anymore.  One of the Mosberg-three is John Montefusco Jr., who plead guilty to not paying taxes on money he made in a house flipping scheme with Mosberg.  He also embezzled 18K worth of expenses.  He got 3 years probation and a 10K fine.  Why such a harsh sentence? Remember, this is New Jersey:

“But U.S. Judge Anne Thompson opted for probation, saying Montefusco and his wife, who both suffer from health problems, have a responsibility to care for their adopted preteen sons.

The judge also said the taxes he failed to pay the IRS on $160,000 of undeclared income was “not a great sum” compared to other offenders who have appeared before her.”

Anyway, Mosberg’s trial is being postponed until three separate Supreme Court rulings come down, one of them involving Conrad Black and another is Enron-related. Mosberg is in good company.

“All sides involved in the upcoming Mosberg trial are waiting for the nation’s highest court to decide on Black v. United States, Weyhrauch v. United States and Skilling v. United States — cases involving fraud that could offer “guidance” in how the Mosberg trial is conducted, lead prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni said today.”

Why would you wait for decisions to come down in other fraud and bribery cases? We aren’t lawyers here, but you’d think that in New Jersey, of all places, they’d know how to investigate cases of bribery and fraud. Well, here’s why.

“U.S. District Court Judge Freda Wolfson said in a court order in January that the three Supreme Court cases could affect several factors in the Mosberg trial, such as the final jury instructions and the arguments from the prosecution and defense.”

We hope that lead prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni is hoping to use the decisions, expected to come this summer, to leave Mosberg no wiggle room at all. But who knows, this is New Jersey after all.

But anyway, I think we have come up with a great defense for Edward Mosberg. You see, Mosberg is a “Holocaust Survivor” (HS) and HS’s are just different from everyone else and should be “judged” by a completely different standard.

What? You all don’t agree? You think Mantiq has become Mantiqinstein?  We have judicial backing for this opinion.

Let’s take the case of Florida’s Jack Barouh, a former “watchmaker” who has been, according to this article, engaged in shady financial dealings going all the way back to 1976. Unlike Montefusco above, who hid an amount of less than 200,000 dollars in income, Barouh has hidden, and no I am not making up this figure, 6 million dollars from the IRS using a Swizz bank.

“Barouh, 65, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Adalberto Jordan in Miami. He admitted in February that he skimmed money from his company and didn’t report income on $10 million in assets, including $6 million in offshore accounts at UBS.

His lawyer asked for a sentence of a year’s home detention, saying in court papers Barouh is the son of Holocaust survivors who taught him to “hide and hoard” and compulsively “want to establish a secret nest egg.” Prosecutors today asked for a 15- month prison term.”

There’s your out Mosberg. Hitler made you “hide and hoard.”

Barouh received 10 months in prison. This for over 30 years of committing financial fraud – fraud he admitted to.

I predict that Mosberg will not do any jail-time whatsoever and I suggest that Barouh move to New Jersey.

4. A song for Palestine

Okay, last week we did feature a belly dancer, (much to Roha’s amusement as she expressed on Mondoweiss).  So this week, we are featuring a handsome and apparently Palestinian lad who lives in Barcelona, Spain. His name is Nabil Mansour.  Here he is signing a song for Palestine (and yes I do know that the refrain and other words in the song are in the Egyptian National Anthem).

Here is the link to his YouTube page where he posts a version of  “Helwa ya Baladi”  originally done by the great Dalida but here done by someone else.

Nabil  says on his site: “Music about Palestine from my heart to the hearts of people all around the globe.” So maybe this post will help him reach a few more.  If you don’t like this, man you are at the wrong blog.

5. Speaking of “Helwa ya Baladi,”  Chantal Chamandy does a very nice rendition of it here at the Pyramids. She’s pretty helwa, herself, in our humble opinion. (Freeman gets the last word on this). She’s Egyptian-born and Canadian-raised. [Good news for Nabil, btw, I hear she’s studying Spanish :-)]

It’s a song written about love and appreciation for one’s country, not something Americans would understand, apparently.

Anyway, give this one about one minute to get going and you’ll enjoy it.
