Allen Dulles rejected anti-Zionist group’s requests

Unknown-4

February 19-20, 2014 — Allen Dulles rejected anti-Zionist group’s requests

From Wayne Madsen Report

 A series of documents uncovered from declassified CIA archives reveal that CIA director Allen Dulles rejected speaking before or issuing a statement to an anti-Zionist group called the American Council for Judaism.

Although Dulles maintained close links between the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the Gestapo during World War II, he helped expose “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” as a forgery to The Times of London and New York Times while serving at the U.S. embassy in Istanbul in 1921. Dulles also saw the establishment of a Zionist state in the Middle East as a natural outgrowth of the Balfour Declaration and the post-World War I Treaty of Versailles. During his time in Istanbul, Dulles became a close acquaintance of Chaim Weizmann, the father of modern Zionism.

When it came to issuing a statement for the American Council on Judaism conference in Houston in March 1958, Dulles made his position on the group’s goals clear. In a latter to the group’s executive director Leonard Sussman, Dulles’s executive officer at the CIA wrote, “In view of the nature of Mr. Dulles’ position in the intelligence community, he regrets that he is not able to furnish you with a statement.” In a February 4, 1958 briefing memo, Stanley J. Grogan, Dulles’s assistant, wrote “This is a very delicate matter which involves a religious faith and a political movement, both things to be avoided by the Director.”

What alarmed Dulles and his staff was Sussman’s statement in his letter that “We believe our program takes on particular interest this year, because of a growing recognition on the part of thoughtful people everywhere, of the need for distinguishing between Judaism (a religious faith) and Zionism (a worldwide political movement). This need, first emphasized by us fifteen years ago, is increasingly referred to by informed observers as one of the fundamentals underlying the Arab-Israeli crisis in the Middle East, a crisis threatening the peace of the world.”

In 1960, Dulles’s staff again rejected an invitation by the American Council for judaism for Dulles to issue a statement to the group’s meeting in Denver. The CIA’s executive officer responded to Sussman by stating, “In view of the nature of Mr. Dulles’ official position, he has followed a firm policy of declining participation in non-governmental activities.”

It is noteworthy that Dulles avoided the appearance of speaking to religious and political groups involved with Middle East policy while today, U.S. leaders, including military and intelligence officials, routinely appear before such groups as the American israel Public Affairs Committee and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith.

The American Council on Judaism continues to exist and it remains one of the leading Jewish voices opposed to Zionism. However, American political leaders continue to follow Dulles’s footsteps in eschewing the organization’s events.

Wayne Madsen Report Person’s of the Year

 

Snowdan Putin

WMR’s Persons of the Year for 2013: Ed Snowden and Vladimir Putin

December 27-30, 2013 – WMR’s Person of the Year

It was a tough call. Who did more to change the course of history and influence news coverage in 2013 than any other person?

It’s a tie.

Because National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower might be locked up in a U.S. Super Max prison had it not been for Russian President Vladimir Putin granting temporary political asylum to Snowden, we might not have learned as much as we have about the massive surveillance network operated by NSA and its over 45 partners around the globe.

Therefore, WMR’s Persons of the Year are Edward Snowden and Vladimir Putin.

Putin also changed the course of history by cleverly authorizing his foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov (who is a definite runner-up as Person of the Year), to offer the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons in order to forestall a U.S. and NATO military attack on Syria. A U.S. attack may have helped bring an Al Qaeda and Saudi-dominated regime into power in Damascus with disastrous results for the Middle East, Russia, and the world. Israel would have remained as strong as ever because Al Qaeda and its Saudi patrons have never been a threat to Israel because of an obvious but secret non-aggression pact crafted between Riyadh and Jerusalem.

Raspberries and “Bronx cheers” go to journalist/lawyer Glenn Greenwald and his new billionaire sponsor Pierre Omidyar for creating First Look Media, Inc., a Delaware corporation, to “handle” the remainder of Snowden’s estimated 50,000 NSA documents.

Greenwald has always had a tendency to deal with unsavory types, having once represented as a lawyer Matt Hale, the imprisoned white supremacist and neo-Nazi. Lawyers and journalists have the right to turn down clients and patrons and Greenwald’s actions pass no smell test as far as we can see (or smell). Disclosure of Snowden’s documents have slowed down to an annoying Chinese torture water drip.

As seen from NSA documents, the agency has long had corporate allies and partners from Microsoft and Cisco to Facebook and Yahoo. Why should Omidyar’s PayPal be any different? If NSA has paid Omidyar $250 million dollars in “hush money,” which, in turn, he has given to Greenwald’s First Look, Inc., NSA got off very cheap.

WMR’s Persons of the Year for 2013: Ed Snowden and Vladimir Putin

John Young after court hearing on 2600 Magazine lawsuit over Digital Millennium Copyright Act
Runner up: John Young of Cryptome.org

Honorable mention and runner up for Person of the Year goes to John Young of Cryptome.org. Young has rightfully questioned the slow release of Snowden’s documents. It is certain that had Snowden passed on his massive trove of documents to Young and Cryptome, we would now be reading all of them without the annoying censorship or redactions.

Cryptome remains the best source for whistleblower documents and, for that matter, anything leaked from government agencies or corporations.

The Persons of the Year selection is all about openness and transparency of government. President Obama, who promised the most transparent administration in U.S. history, has given us the most secretive. Obama reluctantly agreed to Russia’s chemical weapons deal in avoiding a U.S. war against Syria and he engaged in discussions with Iran, but he refuses to allow Iran to participate in Syrian peace talks and he continues to launch deadly drone attacks in Muslim countries. He would rank high on only one list for 2013: Milquetoast of the Year. Obama should be given credit for standing up to the Israel Lobby against further crippling sanctions on Iran but he has not shown the same fortitude in pressing Israel to stop its ethnic cleansing of Bedouins from the Negev and West Bank and ceasing the expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

As far as domestic U.S. politics, there is not one politician said to be running for president in 2016 who is worthy of any positive mention. Every single candidate mentioned so far belongs on a “Scoundrel of the Year” list. Hillary Clinton would top such a list, followed in close order by Chris Christie, Joe Biden, Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, and the rest of the sorry lot.

And belonging on no “person of the year” list are shameless “flash-in-the-pan” celebrities like Miley Cyrus who would do well to move to Moscow and join up with George Soros’s Pussy Riot whores. These contemptible women may be honored by the infotainment industry but that does not mean we have to pay attention to them or even care if they are run over by a bus.

Time magazine selected Pope Francis I as its Person of the Year. We have selected Snowden and Putin but Francis is a worthy choice. We have him in third or fourth place. If he survives Opus Dei, his evil predecessor Benedict XVI, the mafia, and the bankers, Francis may do some more amazing things for the Catholic Church and the world. After 2014, his selection as Person of the Year for 2013 may appear premature because he may deserve the recognition once again for even more noteworthy accomplishments.

Neocons Target Ukraine in “Orange Crush”

unnamed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nuland, Kagan, Soros, Sharp crowd rally around Ukrainian protesters and the “Euromaidan Maiden,” the lady with the “bagel” on her head, Yulia Tymoshenko.

 

December 12-13, 2013 — Neocons target Ukraine in “Orange Crush”

The neocons are still alive and active as ever inside Secretary of State John Kerry’s State Department. Kerry’s Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, who previously served as Hillary Clinton’s State Department mouthpiece, has threatened sanctions against Ukraine.

Ukraine, which resisted efforts by the European Union to integrate it into Europe’s banker-led federation of austerity and poverty, came into the EU’s cross hairs after it abandoned talks with Brussels and Berlin in favor of an economic union with Russia. That move triggered off what can be described as the “Second Orange Revolution,” a mass street uprising in Kyiv’s Maidan (Independence) Square that demanded the resignation of Ukraine’s democratically-elected President and government.

The connections between the Kyiv uprising and the EU outside manipulators are so apparent, the Kyiv square that has become the “Tahrir Square” of Ukraine is called “Euromaidan.”

This “Orange Crush” was spearheaded by the same George Soros/National Endowment for Democracy/CIA provocateur guru Gene Sharp hydra that saw the overthrow of Ukraine’s government in 2004 in the so-called Orange Revolution. This time, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych is the target.

Nuland, who is married to the bloody-handed neocon archangel Robert Kagan, handed out snacks to protesters on Maidan Square. Imagine the reaction of the United States had a second-tier official of either the Russian or Chinese foreign ministry handed out food to Occupy Wall Street protesters in Washington and urged them to overthrow, by force if necessary, President Obama. Yet, that is exactly the scenario Nuland engaged in by supporting protesters in Maidan. Furthermore, she reprimanded Yanokovych for the heavy security presence in Maidan. Nuland and Kerry, who also upbraided Yanukovych, forgot the acts of police brutality committed by U.S. cops against occupy protesters, as well as a plan by the FBI to use snipers to assassinate the leaders of the group.

And Nuland and Kerry were very quiet when the Turkish government sicced riot police on peaceful protesters in Taksim Square in Istanbul earlier this year. After all, Turkey is a member of NATO and Ukraine, for the time being, is not.

For Gene Sharp and his two NGO “babies,” OTPOR and the Center for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS), vanguard organizations for organizing “rent-a-riot” anti-government protests around the globe, only nations resistant to the “New World Order” designs of Wall Street and the Pentagon are fair game for receiving cash, snacks, and other support from the United States. Recently, it was discovered, through leaked emails, that CANVAS founder Srdja Popovic was collaborating with the CIA- and Pentagon-linked intelligence firm STRATFOR, founded by George Friedman, whose ties to the U.S. and Israeli military-intelligence establishments are well known.

And as with all fake “themed” revolutions, an “embattled martyr” is needed to rally the “rent-a-mob” to action. For the Ukrainian demonstrator, the “Maiden of Maidan” is Yulia Tymoshenko, the former Prime Minister who was imprisoned for corruption.Tymoshenko, who is now held at a clinic in Kharkiv, has become the “Aung San Suu Kyi” of Ukraine. But for many Ukrainians, the former Prime Minister is a shameless attention seeker whose trademark braided hair coif is derided as a “bagel” on top of her head. The quip is a reference to Tymoshenko’s support for Ukraine’s leading Zionists and jailed Russian tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky, another darling of the Soros/Sharp/Nuland set.

One of the demands of the EU to agree to the pact with Ukraine was the release from prison and political rehabilitation of Tymoshenko. AndNuland and her neocon friends have made no secret of their desire to have Ukrainian ex-boxer and Udar Party leader Vitali Klitschko replace President Yanukovych in an undemocratic process brought about by the type of hooliganism that saw protesters topple a statue of Vladimir Lenin in central Kyiv.  Who really benefits from the destruction of a Lenin statue? The answer to that question can be found in the banking corridors of Frankfurt and London, as well as the political power corridors of Washington and Brussels.

Nickels A Tale of Dissociation by Christine Stark

Nickels Book Cover

 

Nickels: A Tale of Dissociation

By Christine Stark

www.ChristineStark.com

with an introduction by Anya Achtenberg

Nickels follows a biracial girl named Little Miss So and So from age 4 into adulthood. Told in a series of prose poems, Nickels’ lyrical and inventive language conveys the dissociative states born of a world formed by persistent and brutal incest and homophobia. The dissociative states enable the child’s survival and, ultimately, the adult’s healing. The story is both heartbreaking and triumphant. Nickels is the groundbreaking debut of Minneapolis-area author and artist Christine Stark.

 

“Christine Stark has crafted a language and a diction commensurate with the shredding of consciousness that is a consequence of childhood sexual abuse. She brings a wholly original voice in a riveting novel of desperation and love. Nickels is narrated by Miss So and So, as her mother names her, from age 4 to 26, a character so compelling I never wanted to stop hearing from her. She names herself crazy girl, but the reader sees a different truth: there’s humor and cunning and ferocious love alive in those who survive. Stark enables the reader to inhabit the intricacy and chaos of this potent inner landscape, and we have not seen this before. Every sentence vibrates with a terrible beauty. Every sentence brings the news.

—Patricia Weaver Francisco, author of Telling: A Memoir of Rape and Recovery

“To be taken into the mind of a child can be an enchanting adventure, but to be taken into the mind of a child who is abused, confused, and taken for granted is a lingering, livid journey. I applaud her fortitude to bring an olden—too long ignored—truth out of the darkness with blazing, innovative light.”

—MariJo Moore, author of The Diamond Doorknob

“In Nickels, Christine Stark powerfully portrays the story of abuse and its impact on our lives. This beautifully written and compelling story leaves you wanting more. It’s riveting; a book that will capture you from the beginning and carry you through to the end. Everyone should read this book.”

—Olga Trujillo, author of The Sum of My Parts

“…These brilliantly written pieces stimulated the board into a lively discussion of language, point of view, and politics, and resulted in a resounding `yes’ from everyone on the importance of using these two pieces together, as point-counterpoint on the themes of violence against women and the nuanced and challenging process of surviving that violence.”

–Minnie Bruce Pratt, Creative Writing Editor for the Feminist Studies Editorial Board

“Take a dark journey with Christine Stark, deep into the dungeon that is incest. Follow crazy girl as she fights for her dignity and sense of self-worth. Then cheer when she finally finds the strength to say: `I know my name now and you do not frighten me.’”

—Julian Sher, author of Somebody’s Daughter: The Hidden Story of America’s Prostituted Children and the Battle to Save Them

“The judging panel believes Christine Stark’s work is both art and metaphor. She creates story and mood using a stream of consciousness style. The writing is rhythmic, and lyrical with conscious and authoritative use of various techniques such as repetition. In Christine’s story, the perpetrator behaves as if his act, and assault, is one of mundane evil. This story alludes to the reality of society’s marginalized—vulnerable to everyday evils—mundane for some, not so for others. The panel applauds Christine’s writing talents, her willingness to take a risk by composing a raw, provocative piece designed to invite us to consider the nature of mundane evil from several unexpected points of view.

–Sandra Lloyd, The Pearls Writing Group

Kola Boof screen shot 2-2

 

Author’s Bio: Kola Boof

 

PERSONAL LIFE HISTORY:

Kola Boof was born Naima Bint Harith circa 1969 in Omdurman, Sudan to Arab Egyptian archeologist Harith Bin Farouk and his wife Jiddi, a charcoal black Gisi-Waaq Oromo.

Kola’s birth parents were murdered in her presence in 1978 for speaking out against slavery and other atrocities by the Sudanese government, and in 1979, Kola was adopted and thereafter raised in Washington, D.C. by Black Americans, Marvin and Claudine Johnson.

In 1993, as an adult, Kola Boof became a citizen of the United States. In 1994, she returned to North Africa to pursue a career in modeling and acting.

Unfortunately, in 1996, she was the mistress of Osama Bin Laden, which caused a media frenzy, and though it was against her will, caused Ms. Boof to lose her writing post at NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” after sponsors became nervous.  Ms. Boof currently lives in Southern California and has two sons. Kola Boof has been interviewed by MSNBC, FOX News, and CNN; and has been featured in TV Guide, Time, the New York Post, and the New York Times.

 

LATEST NOVEL:
The Sexy Part of the Bible” published by Akashic Books (New York) is both controversial and mainstream.  It received starred reviews from The Boston Globe and San Francisco Weekly and was praised by Publisher’s Weekly, Booklist, Time Out New York and many others. It made Hey Small Press’s Best Book of the Year.

It tells the story of a beautiful and diabolical young African woman who harbors
a death-defying secret.

Through twilights of passion and adventure, she finds herself combating Western
Civilization’s “re-invention” of Africa as well as discovering her impatience for
injustice and her natural zeal for high life and glamor.

Her incessant fear of Dolls and her burgeoning sexuality are like raging rivers that
won’t be contained.  This is not only a deeply sexual, deeply spiritual novel…it’s
a novel about the real Africa and one woman’s tragic desire to see it survive in
its own magical and wondrous image.
Controversial for its much discussed “sex scene with Jesus Christ” and the
true story of African apes kidnapping and raping African virgins on the eves of
their weddings…”The Sexy Part of the Bible” also presents us with an array of
unexpected characters…from a marijuana growing India Jones type Englishman
to a Muslim Woman practicing Witchcraft to a Transsexual Mother and Scientist
who is determined to alter time and the universe to her liking.

One Woman and One Man…for all time. Mother and son.

This is a powerful, poet and altogether unforgettable novel of self-love and the
violent unfairness…of identity.
There has never been a book like “The Sexy Part of the Bible.”

 

ACHIEVEMENTS: 

 

Kola Boof won the “2007 World Author’s Woman to Woman Pen” for Non-fiction, awarded for Kola Boof’s essay “I Am My Own Daughter”, which appeared in the popular Swedish feminist magazine, OTTAR—Sweden.

 

Her autobiography “Diary of a Lost Girl” was chosen by famed Princeton

Critic Kam Williams as the “U.S. Best Book of 2006.”

 

Kola Boof has been published in “Harper’s Magazine” and was included

alongside top literary writers Noam Chomsky, Charles Baxter, Z.Z. Packer and Stewart O’Nan in the groundbreaking short story anthology

An editor at Paris Review, Oliver Broudy, called Ms. Boof’s story “The One You Meet Everywhere”–the best story in the whole collection.

 

KIRKUS REVIEWS gave “Politically Inspired” a Starred Review and

wrote: “Not a dud in the bunch!”

 

In African literary circles that include Chinua Achebe, Ms. Boof is widely referred to as “Daughter of Chinweizu.”  This comes from her

early “rebel girl” days in which Ms. Boof posed topless for the back of

her book covers and espoused the teachings of Nigeria’s greatest literary

Scholar, Chinweizu.

 

Ms. Boof no longer poses topless on her books, but she has been dubbed “Africa’s most important new writer” by the great Chinweizu himself!

 

Kola Boof has published several novels and poetry collections on

small black imprints to much acclaim.

 

These titles include “Flesh and the Devil,” ”Long Train to the

Redeeming Sin,” “Nile River Woman” and “Pure Nigger Evil.”

 

She has been one of only two black writers to write for the internationally

aired soap opera, “Days of Our Lives.”

In 2008, the government of South Sudan rewarded Kola Boof for years of

activism by appointing her National Chairwoman of the U.S. branch of its

peace organization The SSPP.

 

An organization whose members include Francis Bok, Garba Diallo and Ambassador Dudley Thompson.

 

She has been interviewed by MSNBC, FOX NEWS, CNN and featured in TV Guide, Time Magazine and the N.Y. Post and N.Y. Times.

that Boof is in a class by herself.  The living epitome of what

an artist should be.”

“Kola Boof’s great magic is that she’s not afraid of squat!

Refreshing, daring, disturbing, imaginative and original.

I can’t believe she’s so underground.”
