Our Puppet Governments Could’t Be Happier
Israel spies sent after boycott backers: Report
… by Press TV, Tehran, …with Jim W. Dean commentary
[ Editors Note: Once again, a story like this is no shock to VT readers, but incredibly, at this late stage of the game, the real story is how not a single Western country will take any criminal action over what is an obvious conspiracy to subvert the rights of its respective citizens.
The history of the total stand down on prosecuting Israeli espionage is a huge scandal in every country where it occurs.
And I regret to have to say that the various publics have pretty much been on their knees to it as you never see this issue raised during political campaigns, debates, or at conventions of major institutions, not even law enforcement ones.
I can use my own Association for Intelligence Officers, where ex-CIA chief James Woolsey is an honorary board member. He recently upped his game on trying to get Jonathan Pollard released by claiming that anyone who was against that was an anti-semite.
Despite Woolsey having taken a dump on his oath of office and the CIA, who lost over a 1000 agents and assets due to Pollard, it is felt that because of his past position that his right to speak out is not something others have the right to do anything about.
The real reason of course is, like virtually everyone else, they don’t want to visit the front lines on this issue, but remain safely in the rear area doing the ‘safe stuff’. I don’t mean to pick on AFIO…because you could make a huge list of others who would do exactly the same thing…nothing.
Huge numbers of you are in organizations where if you brought this to them they would not even understand why you did. That is a very big part of the inertia problem we are having. We need the org support to really put the hammer on the bad guys and they are AWOL. Their attitude is, “It’s not my job, man.”
And the outrage of it all is the groups asking for support for their respective organizations tasked with defending the national security…they don’t see the inconsistency.
And no, they don’t hear many complaints from members that ‘they should do something’, so the few voices who do are deemed a ‘fringe’ minority. It is they, who are undermining our efforts. You can just imagine how popular I am in such places.
So I am going to keep banging my drum that Americans and other free peoples have to get it through their heads that they can vote over, and over and over, by making a list of people and organizations to send some challenging missives out to on a regular basis.
And then if you wanted to get into ‘vote rigging’ you can create groups of folks to do the same thing. That is a power that is sitting in everyone’s hands that is the most underused weapon that we have. Please do it…Jim W. Dean ]

A report says Israeli spies have been ordered to try to link supporters of an economic boycott against Tel Aviv to terrorists and enemy states.
Israel has convened a ministerial meeting to discuss how to respond to the growing number of foreign companies refusing to do business with Israeli entities operating in illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank, The Times reported on Tuesday.
The United Nations regards the Israeli settlements as illegal because the territories were captured in the war and are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbid any constructions on the occupied lands.
The meeting saw Israeli Minister for Intelligence and Strategy, Yuval Steinitz tabling a plan for media propaganda against organizations advocating boycotts.
Earlier in the month, US Secretary of State John Kerry pointed to “an increasing de-legitimization” campaign building up against Israel internationally and “talk of boycotts” if the Israeli-Palestinian conflict did not end.
Last month, a major Dutch pension fund, PGGM, which is one of the world’s largest pension asset managers, said it would divest from five Israeli banks it says are involved in financing construction of Israeli illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian lands.
In mid January, two of Europe’s largest banks, Nordea Bank of Sweden and Danske Bank of Denmark, announced they would terminate all joint operations with Israeli banks that deal with the settlements Israel is building in the West Bank.
The American Studies Association (ASA), an alliance of US professors, has also said it would refuse formal collaborations with Israeli academic institutions or with scholars who represent those institutions or the Israeli government until “Israel ceases to violate human rights and international law.”
He is working to find time now to database his extensive video archive of Americana and interviews filmed during his public TV days so individual topic segments can be key word searched to quickly use in future multi-media projects.
