Many blame Ashcroft, Cheney, and Bush for ongoing campaigns
against activists, politicians and organizations that try to help Arabs and
Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner, a long time Palestinian
rights advocate, told supporters that he believes former US Attorney General
John Ashcroft personally orchestrated a sting operation to remove him from
office. As in previous cases, strategic �media update sessions� put the media
into a predatory frenzy before the accused even went to trial. Media
accusations often do not even coincide with the actual charges.
Riad Hamad, founder of Palestinian Children�s Welfare Fund
in Texas, believed George Bush was after him. When Hamad died mysteriously and
violently after a vicious media campaign libeling him as a terrorism supporter,
police and FBI refused to investigate. Clearly, there was a conspiracy
involving media and law enforcement. Yet for Bush personally to take such an
interest in local politics is probably beyond plausibility.
This pattern of political persecutions, from Turner to Charles
Freeman, can be best understood with a bottom-up approach.
As Jewish wealth, power, and influence have increased so has
its ability to punish those offending the organized Jewish community in some
way. While the Jewish power elite seems to enjoy legal immunity, Americans and
US residents targeted by these powerful political economic oligarchs suffer
media and governmental abuse. This is particularly true in the Boston area,
which is now a major command and control center for transnational Jewish
politics and Zionist lobbying.
Not only do many such organizations that long ago should
have lost 501(c)(3) tax deductible status continue to incite racism effectively
with US government subsidization, but financial predation has to be truly
awesome before discussion of their financial wrongdoing becomes even slightly
possible, and to this day a Boston-area fraudster like longtime
Madoff-associate Robert Jaffe has yet to face criminal charges.
Americans should wonder whether the studious obliviousness
of the US Attorney�s Office to federal criminal violations, including all the
ongoing bribery of US public officials with trips to Israel, indicates that
Zionist power has trumped Constitutional loyalty.
Although the pattern of abuse of power extends well beyond
the Boston area, much if not most of Zionist social, political, economic, and
academic misbehavior links back to the Boston-area Jewish community or
educational institutions where young Jews often first hook up with vast corrupt
Jewish social networks. As a major American and world education center, Boston
provides the most efficient and excellent means for the Jewish power elite to
influence the USA and the world. No one should be surprised US Senator from
Israel Joseph Lieberman and Harvard Professor Ruth Wisse are inlaws.
Although the presence of extremist Zionists, like Rahm
Emanuel or Dennis Ross, near the president is disturbing, lower rank staffers,
like Treasury Department official Stuart Levey or
pro-Israel propagandist Matthew Levitt, are far more threatening to US
democracy. While serving the government, Boston-bred Levitt constructed a vast
terrorist conspiracy out of paranoid Zionist fantasies trying to explain the
refusal of Muslims to acknowledge that it was just to establish a Jewish
state in Palestine.
In Levitt�s delusions, to which other lesser ranking
government officials like Daniel Pipes and Rachel Ehrenfeld contributed,
Islamic finance and Islamic charity serve as a many-headed hydra of evil.
Through vast numbers of meetings and internal dissemination of documents Levitt
and Levey spread Zionist doctrine throughout government bureaucracy until
practically every official from Ashcroft down could, on cue, reflexively repeat
the whole litany of the sins that Levitt had fabricated about each charity or
financial entity that was targeted for demonization.
Roots of the conspiracy involving Pipes, Levitt, and Levey
lead back to the Boston area, where the Israel Lobby is deeply embedded in the
region�s educational institutions.
Aafia Siddique, who was a graduate student in cognitive
neuroscience at Boston area Brandeis University, was demonized as a terrorist
to punish her Muslim activism at the Jewish institution. The case constructed
against Siddiqui has the flavor of psychotic paranoia so common in Matthew
Levitt�s anti-Palestinian, Islamophobic fantasies.
During the Bush administration, Levitt,
who manipulated the US government into putting a lot of good people in jail,
was a close associate of both Ashcroft and Levey, who continues in the Obama
administration as an American Jewish Committee covert operative.
Understanding the centrality of Boston Jewish power in the
USA requires a critical look at The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy.
Professors Mearsheimer and Walt incorrectly claim the Israel Lobby is just
another lobby even though the Israel Lobby is really the public face of an
international criminal web, which has rendered the USA a dependent intimidated
client state within the Zionist imperial system.
Because US hard power is vast while the Israel Lobby only
has soft power, maintaining the privilege of the Jewish power elite requires
tentacles that reach into American society well beneath national finance and foreign
policy levels in order to keep most Americans confused, intimidated, or
