Is Zimmerman a Murderer or Will We See "Palestinian Justice?"




…by  Gordon Duff, Senior Editor


This is our question.  Is the “Zimmerman killing” the first sign of the Middle East’s most secretive and shameful crime, the apartheid killings in Israel coming home? 

Zimmerman, of mixed Jewish and Hispanic origin is now the “poster boy” used by the ADL, AIPAC and the SPLC for the right to simply shoot African Americans down like dogs, or so it is playing out for all to see. 


The photo above is curious enough in itself.  Is Zimmerman in a prison jumpsuit or is this just his fashion sense?  We might then ask how many people photographed in a prison jumpsuit are allowed to carry weapons?


The Zimmerman photo is from a 2005 arrest.  Zimmerman has had no record of employment since 2008 and has, according to news stories, been running a “one man watch” organization in his “spare time.”



Statements given indicate that Zimmerman chased, first with a vehicle, then on foot, armed with a deadly weapon, an innocent bystander.  Claims are made Zimmerman was “decked.”  This is legally interpreted as Trevon “standing his ground against an unprovoked assault by an armed assailant.”

Zimmerman wasn’t issued a badge and warrant card when he got his prison jumpsuit and his “self appointed ” one man vigilante group made him the one that looked like a criminal suspect, preparing to rob someone, not the other way around. 

It was Zimmerman who was acting suspiciously.  Why do you think police are issued such things as uniforms and police cars?  They are also trained, although that doesn’t always seem to work well, not with some anyway.



Zimmerman supposedly belongs to a local militia group or neighborhood watch.  Problem is, nobody has recognized this group, they aren’t constables as in Texas, they  have no list of membership.  Any legitimate “watch” is subjected to background checks by police, which are part of the public record.  No such record exists.  Does this “watch” exist?  Does a record exist?

With no employment record, who paid for the SUV?  Who bought the gun?  Who paid for the gas?  In fact, how did Zimmerman live at all?

We can’t even tell if this is a case of simple mental illness, a gang related killing or a drug deal gone bad.  Every word we have heard is a lie, and thousands around the country are protesting, very rightly, for truth.  As officials empowered and sworn to protect the public have withheld the truth, derailed justice, who is investigating them?

Who is Mr. Zimmerman?  What is his employment record, driving record, his school grades, is he supporting a family, was his family a victim of crime or is he a local gang member?  Since he became a national celebrity, why has his history been “secretized” as though he were a Bush family member?


Where is the press?  Are they simply remiss or is it that there is some reason that all those trails, so easy to follow on such a huge story have been put on back burner, where so many questions that people around the world are burning to learn about have been selected for censorship by the news?

Maybe Zimmerman is person of sterling reputation, an Eagle Scout, National Honor Society, working 3 jobs, no police record, beloved by all.

Is someone hiding something?

Even David Duke, the famous critic of Israel, got caught in bed, albeit accidentally, with his most powerful enemies.  Race is that touchy an issue, that powerful in the US and something we have so much denial about.

Few nations in the world know that American politics are entirely “black and white” once you scratch the surface.  We now simply have a new twist to things and few seem to understand.

Are they hiding behind election year politics?  Then again, we return to Sanford, Florida and the neighborhood watch. Who is this secret group, who funds them and how do they fit into the money scheme of local politics, long known to be “crooked as hell” in Sandford, Florida?

We have other questions.  If the scenario plays out as some thing, victim begging for his life, Zimmerman pumping bullets into him, as though a classic psychopath, what does this tell us?

This is almost classic police behavior, a “potential suspect” pulls out what ends up being his mobile phone and is shot 25 times by police, highly trained, wearing body armour, who claim they “feared for their lives.”

We don’t know this to be true, we, the public, have been systematically denied the truth by the intercession of powerful groups that see the “Jewishness” of the name “Zimmerman” and see the potential for fomenting racial divide, a source of profit. 

Some groups named in this article make millions in playing “the race card.”  The victim, as usual, is humanity, is justice, is society.

This is why disclosure, why truth is so important, not “court” truth, the twisted mechanations of a system of laws bought and sold like whores.  We have a small part of the picture, it points a gun at one head, not the victims, but Zimmerman’s.

Secrecy, supposedly “in his name” brings to light our most basic fears.  We fear that the crazed killer is somehow empowered to murder us or our children, protected by a mysterious conspiracy.

Does the ADL, JDL, AIPAC and SPLC represent such a conspiracy?  I would say a resounding “yes!”


Thus far it seems there has been no legal process, there was no forensic examination, no crime scene photos, no evidence of any kind, simply a police coverup followed the the “temporary” resignation of a police chief.

No arrest?  Of course not, not when we have police pretending that nothing happened, taken by some as though murdering a black child is no more important that bombing a Palestinian school in Gaza?

Is this going too far?  Is it?  I would have said yes until I saw the trail, the  SPLC, the JDL, the ADL, AIPAC and millions in dollars spent spinning this incident which is much like so many other killings, all racial, many apartheid, a rebirth of the lynchings of old, that still go on around the world.

We just don’t hear about it because our news filters it out.  Wonder why?

I listened to all the tapes, Zimmerman and those who called in.  This is what I got.

Voice analysis of the tapes will show that attempts to show Zimmerman as the victim may well reveal a well staged attempt to subvert justice.  I heard an African American voice screaming for help, not the voice of Zimmerman.

This is just my opinion and is easy to prove as we have extensive recordings of Zimmerman and voice-printing is something any news organization can do with a PC.

We then enter the world of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and accessory to murder for anyone involved in false testimony and it is my opinion that we are hearing some of that, a common tactic when powerful organizations reveal their inner racism, and such organizations are now identified as involved.

Voice prints have gone really high tech

Thus, the first thing I want to see, and the first thing we all should have heard by now, is a voice print analysis of the 9/11 calls.

Failure to have this available indicates that the organs of public reporting have been interfered with, something that also needs looking into.

This is that big a story now, millions are being spent behind the scenes, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the ADL had George Clooney arrested.  Think I am joking?

Those of us who watch justice, as it were, being spooned out in America know this to be the same “lynching society” it was a century ago.

Zimmerman was looking for revenge, seeking a victim because of his feelings of persecution.  No “neighborhood watch” has a right to deal with anything unless they see a crime being committed.

Zimmerman was stalking an individual based on their appearance, wearing a hoodie, frankly what I wear when I travel in Europe in fall and winter, especially on the Riviera where it gets nippy off the Mediterranean.

Mine I have had for many years, I bought it in Canada, lot of dangerous people there, it has the name of a boating team on the front of it.

The most telling aspects of the entire ordeal were the screams of the young victim who, by the sound of it, was probably on his knees being executed.  The audio supplied by those who called in sounded like a gang execution by a cold blooded killer and nothing else.

Why hasn’t there been an arrest? Zimmerman belongs to the Anti-Defamation League and is defended by the Southern Poverty Law Center that purports to exist to defend the poor against the rich.

Our experience is that they are quite the opposite, so much so, that I would see them on “lists.”

When I phoned the NAACP in Washington and asked them what they thought of the SPLC defending Zimmerman, they said they were closely related organizations and knew nothing about it.

It was in every newspaper in the nation at the time.



This is an election year, one where big “Jewish mob money,” the Koch/Adelman cash has all gone GOP while Geithner, Obama’s Secretary of Treasury, makes sure Dem coffers get their share from Wall Street.  We won’t call it blackmail.

What is happening, unseen by too many, is the exploitation of this, positive or not, of the rift between Jewish Americans and Zionist Israel “firsters.” 

If the organizations, ADL, SPLC etc. are correct, then Zimmerman had the right to kill any “goy” for any reason which they would find rationale to defend, though it has brought them out of the closet as “anti-black” and intrinsically racist.

Influence pedaling

This is clearly how the Democratic party and those who recognize the irreversible rift between the US and the Netanyahu government of Israel see it.

It is their job to exploit it by keeping American Jews as Democrats and demonstrating the values of the GOP, looking to Koch and Adelman for “big Jewish cash” while representing political groups traditionally seen as anti-semitic and intolerant.

Groups like see this as a way of exploiting the inherent racism of the GOP and uniting, during an election year, those fearful of right wing oppression.

The timing, of course, puts this single killing among so many recently, 17 in Afghanistan, 26 in Pakistan, 76 in Norway, a rash of shootings in Germany and the usual mayhem across America.

Things are so serious in Mexico, so dangerous, nobody wants to look at that at all.

That story will remain untold, simply exploited for votes and hate during an election year when the real issues, cheap labor and drugs, is ignored as it has strong but invisible ties to the most important ruling families in America, one of our many “national secrets.”



Was this a hate crime?  I say, let a jury decide, one carefully chosen that protects the rights of all, including the victim, and we clearly have a victim here.  Our only question is “what is the crime.”

Claims of defense?  Standing his ground?  No witnesses?  All evidence to the contrary, victim screaming in fear, asking for mercy, admission of intent, police on the line while Zimmerman stalks the victim and ignores police orders, a crime by the way, to stop.

Not a toy - the real McCoy

I have spent as much time carrying weapons, everything from the M 60 machine gun to things I would be jailed for admitting existed.

I recognize the world as a dangerous place and, to some extent, see the need for citizens to band together. However, when it turns into issues of race, it always turns bad.

Zimmerman reminds me of Palestine, and to some extent that colors my own judgement because I see hundreds killed there under similar circumstances, newspapers lie about it and I am seeing those lies again.

Zimmerman is being protected because the “Black Panthers” are out to get him.  This is why, supposedly, he is being defended and has “special rights.”  I suspect all the stories about “black militias” are a cover.

First, let’s deal with the facts.  The only forensic evidence are shell casings, the body of the young boy and the tape recordings of the victim screaming for help, in obvious terror.

What can be assumed is that the victim was being chased by an assailant with a gun drawn, a felony in itself, was cornered, and then shot. Any self defense is on the part of the victim, not the assailant.

Analysis of the audio recordings of Zimmerman indicate a few things.  He is obviously racist.  This is, in itself, not a crime.  Were we to admit it, everyone is racist, so I say, “throw it away.” He admits he saw no crime.  He admits he is assuming potential for crime because he sees a “hoodie.”

This indicates that Zimmerman may require psychiatric examination and very probably should never have been issued a weapons permit.

The police on the phone with him had “that sound” in their voices, like they were dealing with someone “over the edge.”  Their response time, however, as it was obvious that something was terribly wrong with Zimmerman’s unwillingness to take direction from police, needs to be looked into.

Zimmerman has to explain why he shot someone who was begging for his life.

There is no circumstances where you can chase someone, admitted during the police call, run through the streets pointing a gun at an unarmed civilian, an assumption one can make very easily,  and then shoot someone who is obviously trying to hide from what they assume, perhaps rightly so, a jury has to decide, from the murderous assault of a deranged criminal assailant.


The local police and sheriff have not proven capable of dealing with this, leading with the local sheriff temporarily stepping down.  There is probably misconduct in failing to arrest Zimmerman based on evidence, as any other department in the US would have done.

A local Grand Jury would have heard evidence.  However, Florida law enforcement, from region to region is questionable and ethnicity, Jew against African American, is very much part of the mix.

Elected officials looking for Jewish contributions, how most are elected, are influence by such things.  Fear of backlash from the African American community is also a big issue.

When the SPLC and the ADL got involved, this became national politics, stories began to stray from the facts and institutionalized racism became an issue, one that really involved two people, one perhaps heavily armed, delusional, operating clearly outside the law, and the very probable murder of a young man.

Now millions are being spent to “spin” this story to make the victim look like a criminal.

As for Mr. Zimmerman, yes, he should show remorse.  Thus far evidence I have seen indicates that he stalked and then chased down at gunpoint an innocent young man of character and executed him while the victim begged for his life.

Unless diminished capacity can be proven, Mr. Zimmerman faces execution, not exoneration.

He should be scared to death.

There are other issues we could discuss.  What can we do to defend ourselves, do we all need to be lawyers, do we risk our freedom whenever armed and the answer, of course, is yes.

Over 40 years I have, on occasion, faced armed assailants, wartime and otherwise.  As an oldster with sufficient credentials, I sometimes travel at risk, war zones, hot spots, and use security teams, sometimes as many as a dozen or more men.  This relates to me being a target.  It is also a bit embarrassing, having a SWAT team follow me around, while I ride in an armoured car.

However, my wife and I walk through Cairo at midnight, Ankara and Istanbul, Rome or Amman as I am a less than harmless American vacationer and, at times, I reach into that “hoodie” and wish the old Browning HiPower were there, more than one occasion I have had this epiphany.

Do we credit Zimmerman for caring and execute him for one terrible mistake?  Do we brand him a murderer?  Do we look at those who have tried to spin this into something it is not and discredit them, the SPLC, the ADL, or a half dozen other groups?

We have to admit this, local law enforcement, although the officer or 9/11 operator, whomever, on with Zimmerman was competent and correct.  Zimmerman was not, nor was he trained as such.

We must admit we live in a dangerous world and that it is our responsibility to correct it.  We must also admit that police are not the answer.

It is time we looked closely at the dynamic in Sanford, Florida, a town I am not a bit unfamiliar with, and see how such a thing might happen.

Do we jail Zimmerman?  My guess is yes, immediately.  He is to be judged, his story taken into account, subjected to examination compared to evidence and a decision reached.

This is all and no more.

This is the best we can do.  We can’t bring the dead back to life.

Then we look at those who have tried to profit from this, the SPLC, and those who have honestly sought justice also.

We judge them all in the light of day.

Then, perhaps, we might see to it this never happens again.  As for Zimmerman, it is not for me to judge.  I have seen no evidence for a defense thus far but this is why we have trials, why we have laws but it is also why our legal system has failed as trials and laws sometimes, if not often, are subverted as they have been already in Sanford, Florida.

If anything, Zimmerman is made to look more guilty by the misconduct of local officials than anything else as there also seems to be an active cover-up in motion, one that may send others to jail, and, perhaps should.

Many may find themselves in prison because of this.

What Zimmerman told us was that he saw the black community as a threat.  Most of the nations of the world say the same about the State of Israel.   You didn’t know?  This is a different story and yet the same, can a crime that is legal in Israel if the victim is not Jewish be legal in Florida if the victim is not Jewish?

The ADL and SPLC seem to be saying so but in their own underhanded way.

The truth is in a few seconds of recordings, a few photographs and the story of one surviving young man, nowhere else.

It is also a story that goes much further, if we care to admit it, to the Middle East, across America, into the dark hearts of those of more than one race, who look into the face of a stranger and see an enemy.

I’ve heard the tales, tall tales at that.  I have also heard the screams for help, silenced by gunshots.  Can we be convinced this is a simple misunderstanding, a tragedy?  We could have before the coverup began and the lying started.

Now it has gone much further, so much further.  When we know something is really wrong, when there is something bad to cover up, will we expect to hear from Alan Dershowitz next?  Is that much money involved here?


Gordon Duff is a consultant to police organizations around the world and has worked as an investigator on a number of the highest profile criminal cases in our era.


A Personal note:  Having worked more than a few homicide investigations, writing political invective runs against my grain.  I know from experience that what we have heard is probably largely lies, carefully coached.  I can imagine the suffering of everyone involved and the huge fear in injustice the African American community in Sanford fears.

I would make everyone see the cost of this, close up, years of grief, what drives the decision we have seen, real or implied.  Then multiply this times a thousand and see what has been done elsewhere, be it Gaza or Iraq or Pakistan or anywhere a child is killed and someone laughs and turns away.

Just before his heart replacement, the “Cheney one,” from never having had one to now having someone else’s, Cheney was kept from visiting Canada because he faced arrest for war crimes.  We could wonder why the press never mentioned, not giving a heard to a 71 year old, plenty deserve it, but giving a heart to a war criminal, accused in this case, instead of a hundred others.  These aren’t my decisions.

Having real “trigger time,” the power of life and death based on the movement of a finger and cross-hairs over a torso, the reality of life and death escapes too many.  Do we teach “ours” that “not killing” can be more right than killing?  It was a lesson I learned long ago and far far away.


This was an email sent from, what we secretly know as the finance PAC behind the Democratic Party, the clear majority party in the US.  The defenders of Zimmerman, the SPLC, at one time were totally aligned with MoveOn.

What has changed?  What is the game afoot here?

I am including this for demonstration purposes only and none other:


Dear fellow MoveOn member,

I’m a MoveOn member and a mother, and my two sons look like Trayvon Martin.

As parents, we all have to warn our children about the dangers of the world—strangers, bullies, which streets not to walk down. But there’s a special pain in explaining to my sons the suspicion and dangers they face, simply by being young black men.

One month ago today, Trayvon Martin was walking through a gated community in Florida with nothing more than an iced tea and a bag of skittles. But being a young black man in a hoodie made him “suspicious” to George Zimmerman, who got out of his SUV, tracked Trayvon down, and shot him dead.1

On that terrible day, my special pain and fear as a parent became very urgent … and very real. Racial profiling is a sickness in the soul of our nation. It limits our promise. It divides us. And one month ago, it robbed Trayvon Martin of his life.

Trayvon’s story is already inspiring millions in the call for justice and an end to racial violence. It also moved writer/activist Kevin Powell, Akila Worksongs, Jasiri X and the folks at MoveOn and ColorOfChange to record a new powerful video “A Song for Trayvon.” Please watch it and share it with your family and friends to inspire more people to join this growing movement:

When my husband shared the news about Trayvon, my eyes welled with tears. I pictured my own two boys innocently walking home, just like Trayvon, and then never seeing them again—never hugging them. It was more than I could bear.

That’s why I started a SignOn petition calling for justice for Trayvon. It’s been signed by more than 500,000 MoveOn members, and I’m delivering it to the Justice Department today. Already, the public pressure from us and our allies is making a difference.

The Justice Department, the State of Florida, and the FBI have launched new investigations, a new state prosecutor has been appointed, and a grand jury date has been set.2 But we need to keep building the call for justice. And we do that by making sure each and every American knows Trayvon’s story.

Click here to watch and share a powerful video about the injustice done to Trayvon Martin.

President Obama said, “if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”3 He might be like Trayvon too, and Trayvon might have been like my two boys; or your son; or friends of your children, joining you at the dinner table.

But Zimmerman couldn’t see past Trayvon’s race and hoodie to the promising young man he was—a football player, a horseback rider, a hero who pulled his father from a burning kitchen.4 Trayvon was young, he was alive, he was beautiful.

All of us sharing Trayvon’s story and calling out for justice are fighting back against racism and senseless violence, so one day we no longer have to fear our child’s walk home in the darkness.

It’s up to us to make sure that every person in America knows what happened to Trayvon and how his death moved us to tears and action. Help us grow this movement by sharing this video with everyone you know.

Click here to watch and share Trayvon Martin’s story.

Thank you for standing up for Trayvon.

Using smartphones for brand marketing

International Herald Tribune November 17, 2010 | TANZINA VEGA

TANZINA VEGA International Herald Tribune 11-17-2010 Using smartphones for brand marketing Byline: TANZINA VEGA Type: News website google iphone app

Google and several brands are testing a smartphone application that sends users to an ad Web site after photographing an ad or label.

A year ago, Google introduced a smartphone application that lets people take photographs of objects and get search results in return. On Tuesday, the company will take that capability into the world of marketing with an experiment allowing five U.S. companies to use the application in their promotional materials.

In the early days of smartphones, people could find out about a movie by entering its title in Google’s browser and searching. Then Google introduced the ability to use voice to enter a question. The Google Goggles visual search application, available in iPhones and Android phones, allows people to take photographs of an object, like a movie poster, and find out more about it in search results.

Google hopes the experiment will give it insight into how people want to interact with a brand. “It’s a learning experiment for us more than an opportunity to make money,” said Michael Slinger, Google’s head of mobile search advertising sales in North America. “We’ve got the distribution and interesting visuals. Everything hinges on whether the users will adopt this or not.”

Google has reason to believe it might pay off. The company says mobile searches on Google have risen 500 percent in the past two years, and the Google Goggles stand-alone application has been downloaded more than 250,000 times. The application was also recently integrated into the Google iPhone application.

While the technology is not new, the idea that brands can begin to play with it is. Google announced its intention to use the Goggles application as part of its mobile advertising strategy at the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s Mixx conference in New York in September.

While a visual search for a Frida Kahlo painting might show results like a Wikipedia page about the artist, companies that are taking part in the Goggles experiment — Buick, Walt Disney, Diageo, T-Mobile and Delta Air Lines — can point people to a Web site for cellphones or other content.

Most of the campaigns have print components, like magazine ads or movie posters, that can be scanned. And though most people using smartphones have gotten used to scanning bar codes on some ads, with Google Goggles people can scan the entire image to get a result. website google iphone app

For Buick, that means having Goggles-enabled ads in magazines. The ads will show the Buick Regal and will run in U.S. publications like Entertainment Weekly, People and Time in November, and Esquire, Fast Company and Forbes in December.

“People still equate us with big floaty, boxy cars that are driven by people in their 70s and 80s,” said Craig Bierley, director of advertising and sales promotions for Buick-GMC. “This is really about positioning Buick in a progressive marketing space so that people think of Buick as a progressive company.”

When a person scans a Goggles-enabled Buick ad, the first result to appear is a mobile site with a video, a photo gallery and the option to find a dealer. The target demographic for Buick is baby boomers.

The company will measure the success of the experiment by tracking information, like how many people watched the video on the mobile site, looked for a dealer or viewed the photo gallery. They will also monitor what people are saying about the brand on social media sites.

Buick will also use poster-size versions of the ads at two events Thursday in New York City. The first will be at the Wired Store, where people can see a Buick Regal poster. Buick will also offer posters at the Out 100 awards ceremony at the IAC Building, where the company will be the presenting sponsor.

Disney will use Goggles-enabled movie posters for the film “Tron: Legacy,” which will be released in December worldwide. The 30,000 posters will be distributed in 5,000 theaters across the United States. People who scan the posters will be taken to a mobile site where they can view a trailer for the film and be directed to or to buy tickets. The trailer will be the same one that people see in theaters.

T-Mobile has begun running its Goggles ads for the T-Mobile G2 smartphone in publications like Spin, Glamour and Rolling Stone.

Goggles can also use labels from the British beverage company Diageo. People who scan the labels on bottles of certain alcoholic beverages will be taken to a mobile site where they can find things like cocktail recipes and wine reviews.

The most recent partner, Delta Air Lines, is expected to start working on Goggles ads soon.

Mr. Slinger of Google said the company was receiving calls from other companies interested in trying Goggles, including some in the retailing and automotive industries.
