“The Veterans Today site counts Gush Shalom founder Uri Avnery and rabid anti-Israel activist Gilad Atzmon as writers.” …Ilan Ben Zion, The Times of Israel
( First published in Press TV … December 19, 2012 )
EditorsNote: This article was a follow up to Gordon Duff’s on Press TV which went viral and became the most read article in Press TV history. It triggered a quick and organized Israeli Lobby smear campaign before that day was done, which we enjoyed.
… by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor … and Press TV
It began 36 hours ago during a TV interview about gun control with an angry American radio show host, Mike Harris, made his case for Israeli complicity in the Connecticut school killings.
Mike based his feelings on the recent Gaza outrages, access to Intel reports on the Berwick killings in Norway, backed by a wealth of circumstantial evidence that raised very serious questions but did not “close.”
Then Gordon Duff wrote a short article on the Harris interview giving some background but stayed well short of endorsing Harris’ conclusions.
Today Duff’s article went viral on Press TV. It hit a nerve, the UN votes, Gaza bombings, the world was, it seemed, ready to blame Israel for whom killing children has been part of their state defense policy for some time.
What can put the “Israeli stamp of approval” on a preemptive attack more than killing children, right?
In the intelligence world especially, Israel has a very long history of state terrorism going back to their pre-1948 war market-basket bombs, and being awarded at least a virtual patent for car and truck bombs. Many of their top leaders came up through their terrorist ranks, where having murdered people was considered a resume enhancer to the voters.
Every counter intelligence officer and analyst working the Israel desk carries around a mental encyclopedia of the methods used in every Israeli attack on record, including those the public is unaware of.
When any nation, group, company, be it a bank, insurance company or even a political party needs a convenient car bombing, no matter which side or who or what dies, you can always hire Israelis. They have a reputation. When they blow things up, they stay “blown up.”
There are no restrictions, political killings, murdering family members, a mother, a child, anything to get a message to a targeted individual.
This does not include the mayhem caused by their retired people who offer their well-honed services to the open market.
Mike Harari was one of those. On September 12, 2001, Harari, Operations Chief of the Mossad confessed to planning the 9/11 terror attacks.
In 2007, former Soviet Nuclear Security Officer, Dimitri Khalezov, testified to this during an FBI debriefing in Bangkok, Thailand, lie detector attached. The FBI was told: “No rendition for a Mossad spy chief!”
In addition, former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni, for some strange reason, decided to go public with her being an un-repentant Mossad hooker, and having murdered Palestinian ‘academics’, for her country of course. She released this in the middle of an election campaign, so I think you get the picture.
Murdering people is a vote getter, especially if they are Palestinians. Moreover, Americans are not immune by any means. We have a list, and it is not a short one.
Livni pitching her kill skills was no surprise to Intel community people. Along with the last few dying Nazis, America is a retirement home for many Israeli terrorists, like Rahm Emanuel’s father. There are a lot more.
After the Gordon Duff story started going viral, Israel then had a choice, to note the anger and repair the damage, or go after “the messenger.’ To any cop or intelligence officer, and several were consulted during the day, Israel’s behavior showed one thing. They had something to hide.
Moreover, to an experienced law enforcement professional or high-ranking intelligence officer, in this case, we consulted one who worked several years in Israel; a longtime friend of Netanyahu…the behavior we saw today was a confession.
Remember Shakespeare? “Thou dost protest too much?” Today Israel confessed to the killing of twenty kids. They could not have done more if they hired skywriters.
Intel people are sometimes like fishermen who chop up bait to throw into the water to bring out any fish in the area. The slang term for this is ‘chumming’. We not only found some fish today, but a whale who actually harpooned itself.
We did Google searches during the day to see where the article links were being posted, checking comments and what corporate media outlets were picking up the story. We quickly found what I will call the ‘Israeli friendly’ papers, Washington Post, Daily Beast, Newsweek, etc.
We also ran the writers’ names through our entire shill database. This brings up every article they have written with an Israeli or Jewish Lobby topic, and is key word graded for a propaganda ranking, including what their overall score is.
While it is a sad fact that Israeli Intel assets are almost never prosecuted here, those that operate in the public arena are data-mined to maintain a threat profile. Thank God for the computers. What we found was that Israel had unleashed some of their fifth column assets on us. We appreciated being able to update the files.
I even was forwarded a contact from the Times of Israel. This is a new (2012) online platform and claims to have ‘no partisan political affiliation’. First stop to see if this is true is always their board.
Here I found (surprise, surprise) Ephraim Halevy, former director of the Mossad, ambassador and national security adviser. Now there is an unbiased person for sure! But to his credit he has been against the pre-emptive Iran strike crowd in Israel.
I looked for a token gentile among the staff, but none was to be found that I could see, probably a security issue concern.
Then there was Irwin Cotler, the rabid Canadian Zionist who spent his last years giving the judicial ‘West Bank’ treatment to critics of Israel. Such operatives are never prosecuted in Canada either.
Cotler had a good cover though. He was the Canadian Justice Minister. Canada is more occupied than the U.S. The Mossad operates out of one of their major media platforms up there.
In a police investigation, these are people that we would refer to as ‘persons of interest’…like Mike Harris was making reference to in his own way.
The Times of Israel news editor, Mr. Zion, was wanting me to put an official VT endorsement on Mike Harris’ claims, which I declined to do. Our editors are free to interview and say what they want. They do not require VT board approval.
But I did have a chat with him about our ‘industrial scale’ Israeli espionage we endured, that we knew they murdered people over here, and through political corruption had a “get of jail free” pass which many of us were not very happy about.
He did not seem very interested in my story.
I checked out the site later in the afternoon to see what he had written on the Harris/Duff story. I was disappointed not to find a single quote from my interview, but not surprised. Journalism has gone downhill in the last ten years. However, what I did find was the usual cheap shots at Veterans Today.
“The site counts Gush Shalom founder Uri Avnery and rabid anti-Israel activist Gilad Atzmon as writers.
The Anti-Defamation League responded to Harris’s statements saying, “Veterans Today is known for promulgating some of the most outrageous anti-Israel and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, and Press TV has been providing a platform for its contributors and other American anti-Semites, conspiracy theorists and Holocaust deniers for years.”
Dear Mr. Ilan Ben Zion, Uri Avnery and Gilad Atzmon are IDF veterans, and Veterans Today has veteran readers and contributors from 38 countries now.
One of the common bonds we share is having been poorly used by our countries, which we resent and try to protect the same happening to others.
We are a little more diverse than your all-Jewish staff. Ours is only 30% Jewish. We are not into the ‘Gentile State’ thing.
I know you may be new at your job but the unnamed ADL quote was really a cheap shot. We only talk to Abe Foxman over there…and he will not talk. I think it might have something to do with our wanting to discuss some of the unpleasant things we know about the ADL.
The American Intel community considers it a Jewish hate organization, which seems to have some kind of special license to operate. Without their political protection we would have rounded a lot of them up for helping out you know whom.
Say hello to Ephraim for us, and tell him we suggest a little more training. Using an unnamed ADL person to deliver a smear that you can claim you never said, you will never build a reputation for yourself as a real journalist.
And oh, please ask Ephraim for us if the Mossad is still buying entire media platforms to operate out of as fronts, and if they are still paying the 10% commission for a good deal.
And please ask Cotler for me if he is still lynching accused anti-Semites and Israeli critics in Canada, or did he retire from that, too. Thanks, Jim W. Dean
