Economists have a singular method of procedure…Every religion which is not theirs is an invention of men, while their own is an emanation from God.—Karl Marx, The Poverty of Philosophy
“Boorgani” is how the word “bourgeois” was adapted to Hebrew. In the kibbutz, it was used to design the politruks and technocrats living well at our expense. They would sit on red coaches and travel in cars while the proletariat fought the “eshel” trees infesting the Valley’s fish pools.
Professor Manuel Trajtenberg knows nothing about this. His bourgeois parents escaped Ukranian Communism; he was born in Bourgeois Argentina, the only USA’s Major Non-NATO Ally in South America and member of honor of CIA’s bestial Operation Condor. Soon afterwards, he was chosen by wealthy Zionists as a future leader of their unholy enterprise. Sitting in a comfy red coach, this Israeli economist is nowadays Chair of the Planning and Budgeting Committee of the Council for Higher Education in Israel. On August 8, 2011, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appointed him Head of the Trajtenberg Committee, which was to analyze and propose solutions to the social protests that eventually forced Netanyahu to declare early elections. Following this logic, Baron Rothschild would head a committee exploring better money-collecting techniques for beggars. Are you comfortable in your coach, Honorable Mr. Trajtenberg ?

The Committee worked fast. Four months after its creation, the Israeli Parliament approved its conclusions. However, their implementation has not ended by May 2013 because Netanyahu decided to divide them instead of approving them as one package. This was the first sign something had gone wrong.
The Committee recommendations are not essential to this article; thus I will just mention their headlines. In December 2011, the Knesset approved a series of amendments to Israel’s tax law, including an increase in the capital gains tax rate from 20% to 25%. A plan to sell land at a discount to build 5,000 units of affordable housing was proposed; this is far from the actual need. The mandate of the anti-trust commissioner was to be increased, opening the Israeli market to competition, especially in the market of basic foods. Recommendations still not adopted include reducing the defense budget, opening up parallel imports, implementing free compulsory education for children aged 3 and 4 and providing more affordable housing.
Everything looks democratic and nice, despite the delay in the recommendation’s implementation. However, there was a tiny problem. The Committee meetings were not open to the public, and its protocols were kept secret.
Eugène Delacroix – La liberté guidant le peuple
For some time, the protocols were unaccessible. Strangely, a public committee denied access to the public to its work. On May 3, 2013, Calcalist, an economic newspaper affiliated to Yediot Ahronot, won a long battle against the government attempt to censor, and published an analysis of the former secret protocols. Israel, which likes to portray itself as a Bastion of Democracy, emerges there as a Police State run by manipulative politruks (Soviet political officers). My phrasing of this article is not random; modern Hebrew is plagued with Communist terms, the explanation is in the Stalin’s Jews box at the bottom of this page. Netanyahu probably hid the protocols out of shame.
Over the years, Israel has become a dictatorship of technocrats, where civil servants ignore politicians and public as one. Several prominent cases have been analyzed in the State Corruption and other sections of this website. However, the current event provides for the first time the Politruks Protocols.
According to the protocols, Committee Member Avraham Simhon asked from the other members not to leave any recommendation open to interpretations or negotiations out of fear that this would be used by the politicians to render the issue useless; over time this proved truth as much of the recommendations were delayed or neutralized by the Knesset. He said: “This is a closed room; thus I will say things that maybe are better left unsaid. You have already seen the reaction of the Knesset’s Finances Committee, if we leave everything to negotiations, the the housing criteria would be tampered… they will take what they want and will inverse what they don’t want…”
It may look naive, but it is not. This was a public committee supposed to give recommendations. Instead, they want to set policy. The people never gave them that power.
In the same spirit, Yehuda Nassardishi, Head of the Taxation Authority, added that the he is “worried of the government capability to balance between different groups of interests.” Again, a complaint about the lack of dictatorship capabilities of the government paying his salary.
Shlomi Frizet, Antitrust Authority Chief Economist, said “the main problem is the public bargaining capabilities,” he kept complaining about the “focused lobbying of the business sector.” Dear Shlomi, you truly miss Stalin!
Michal Abadi-Boiangiu, the Finance Ministry’s Accountant General, said: “The bottom line is that the Government and the Knesset decide… an item is taken out of government control… and after five or six years you have a monster.” Dear Michal, you truly miss Lenin!
Many similar quotations were published now. The most disturbing one comes directly from Netanyahu’s bureau. Eyal Gabai, Director-General of the Prime Minister’s Office, said, “Let’s say that aloud. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to show that there are people with a hand on the faucet (meaning that they can stop society). We are a force group in a significant junction.” This is on the very verge of declaring a technocrats revolution, formalizing the existing situation.
A few months ago, I published Instead of Statistics, Israel published Racistics, where I analyzed biased publications by the Central Bureau of Statistics. I was happy to find that the Committee agrees with my analysis. The abovementioned Mr. Simhon showed how the Central Bureau of Statistics had manipulated the data regarding the price of olive oil in order to hide that in Israel, where it is basic food, it is among the most expensive in the world. The Trajtenberg Committee transformed itself into a gold mine on Israeli corruption and anti-democratic practices.
Another astonishing point was mentioned by Eugene Kandel, Head of the National Economic Council of the Prime Minister’s Office, he said: “There is consensus not to touch this topic. Not because we think it is good in its actual shape, but because from an operative viewpoint it is clumsy.” Dear, dear Eugene, this is call foreign interests. Your claim is not relevant to the task assigned to the committee. I would explain this in further detail, but it will add clumsiness to this article.
A public committee of civil servants appointed by the government denied access of the public to its meetings and protocols. During the encounters, they openly discussed how they can manipulate public and government into fulfilling their private views of society. Embarrassed by the Ukrainian-Communism displayed by these crypto-Politruks hiding in his declared Rightist Government, clumsy Netanyahu failed to censor the document. Bibi, Stalin is ashamed of you!

Stalin’s Jews was published by Sever Plocker in Yedihot Ahronoth, the leading paid Israeli newspaper, on December 21, 2006.
We mustn’t forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish
Here’s a particularly forlorn historical date: Almost 90 years ago, between the 19th and 20th of December 1917, in the midst of the Bolshevik revolution and civil war, Lenin signed a decree calling for the establishment of The All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage, also known as Cheka.
Within a short period of time, Cheka became the largest and cruelest state security organization. Its organizational structure was changed every few years, as were its names: From Cheka to GPU, later to NKVD, and later to KGB.
We cannot know with certainty the number of deaths Cheka was responsible for in its various manifestations, but the number is surely at least 20 million, including victims of the forced collectivization, the hunger, large purges, expulsions, banishments, executions, and mass death at Gulags.
Whole population strata were eliminated: Independent farmers, ethnic minorities, members of the bourgeoisie, senior officers, intellectuals, artists, labor movement activists, “opposition members” who were defined completely randomly, and countless members of the Communist party itself.
In his new, highly praised book “The War of the World, “Historian Niall Ferguson writes that no revolution in the history of mankind devoured its children with the same unrestrained appetite as did the Soviet revolution. In his book on the Stalinist purges, Tel Aviv University’s Dr. Igal Halfin writes that Stalinist violence was unique in that it was directed internally.
Lenin, Stalin, and their successors could not have carried out their deeds without wide-scale cooperation of disciplined “terror officials,” cruel interrogators, snitches, executioners, guards, judges, perverts, and many bleeding hearts who were members of the progressive Western Left and were deceived by the Soviet regime of horror and even provided it with a kosher certificate.
All these things are well-known to some extent or another, even though the former Soviet Union’s archives have not yet been fully opened to the public. But who knows about this? Within Russia itself, very few people have been brought to justice for their crimes in the NKVD’s and KGB’s service. The Russian public discourse today completely ignores the question of “How could it have happened to us?” As opposed to Eastern European nations, the Russians did not settle the score with their Stalinist past.
And us, the Jews? An Israeli student finishes high school without ever hearing the name “Genrikh Yagoda,” the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU’s deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD. Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin’s collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system. After Stalin no longer viewed him favorably, Yagoda was demoted and executed, and was replaced as chief hangman in 1936 by Yezhov, the “bloodthirsty dwarf.”
Yezhov was not Jewish but was blessed with an active Jewish wife. In his Book “Stalin: Court of the Red Star”, Jewish historian Sebag Montefiore writes that during the darkest period of terror, when the Communist killing machine worked in full force, Stalin was surrounded by beautiful, young Jewish women.
Stalin’s close associates and loyalists included member of the Central Committee and Politburo Lazar Kaganovich. Montefiore characterizes him as the “first Stalinist” and adds that those starving to death in Ukraine, an unparalleled tragedy in the history of human kind aside from the Nazi horrors and Mao’s terror in China, did not move Kaganovich.
Many Jews sold their soul to the devil of the Communist revolution and have blood on their hands for eternity. We’ll mention just one more: Leonid Reichman, head of the NKVD’s special department and the organization’s chief interrogator, who was a particularly cruel sadist.
In 1934, according to published statistics, 38.5 percent of those holding the most senior posts in the Soviet security apparatuses were of Jewish origin. They too, of course, were gradually eliminated in the next purges. In a fascinating lecture at a Tel Aviv University convention this week, Dr. Halfin described the waves of soviet terror as a “carnival of mass murder,” “fantasy of purges”, and “essianism of evil.” Turns out that Jews too, when they become captivated by messianic ideology, can become great murderers, among the greatest known by modern history.
The Jews active in official communist terror apparatuses (In the Soviet Union and abroad) and who at times led them, did not do this, obviously, as Jews, but rather, as Stalinists, communists, and “Soviet people.” Therefore, we find it easy to ignore their origin and “play dumb”: What do we have to do with them? But let’s not forget them. My own view is different. I find it unacceptable that a person will be considered a member of the Jewish people when he does great things, but not considered part of our people when he does amazingly despicable things.
Even if we deny it, we cannot escape the Jewishness of “our hangmen,” who served the Red Terror with loyalty and dedication from its establishment. After all, others will always remind us of their origin.
This horror is true is even before commenting on Marx et al and the kibbutzim concentration camps.
