Scores of skeptical observers are noticing the abundant signs of crisis engineering displayed in the supposed Islamic terror episodes that took place in Ottawa Canada last October, in Sydney Australia in December and in Paris France in January of 2015.
The probable nature of this series of Mossad-style operations can best be understood as the Shock Doctrine in action. The triumvirate of deception in Ottawa, Sydney and Paris seems to have been carried out through real, yet covertly manipulated, acts of lethal violence finessed by operatives tasked to advance the rebranding the 9/11 Wars.
In an article in Veterans Today entitled “Paris Terror, The Smell of False Flag,” Senior Editor Gordon Duff reflects on the apparently staged theatrics accompanying the ruthless murders carried out at the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine. He writes,
Killing 12 French citizens to manipulate public opinion in a nation increasingly unfriendly to Israel simply fits a pattern. That pattern has recently included synagogue attacks as well. The first thing [that should be] asked when there is a terror attack is “who benefits.” No, the mainstream media doesn’t ask. Intelligence agencies don’t ask either. They already know. 80% of the time one of them did it, either directly or through a terror group they either created and operate, like ISIS/ISIL or one they took over, perhaps like Boko Harum or Al Shabab. No one ever asks where those satellite phones and new Toyota pickup trucks come from, as though they magically arrive from outer space.
Veterans Today, Israel, and Global Security
Like many members of the close knit circle that operate in and around Veterans Today, Gordon Duff is a veteran of US special forces involving several branches of the US intelligence services including the CIA. What this group of VT insiders have most in common is a shared sense of betrayal that the instruments of US foreign policy, but especially its most covert branches, have been subordinated to Israeli control.
What I have come to see as a Canadian outsider without any military background myself is the shared acknowledgement by VT insiders that they took part in some very dark operations on behalf of the US deep state. The view seems to be that in earlier times these operations did serve in one way or another some genuine US interests, even if only those of certain branches of the US corporate sector.
The evidence, assert VT insiders, no longer support these conclusions. The subjugation of US foreign policy under the dominant prerogatives of the Jewish lobby, including The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, is but one facet of a more general takeover by a broad coalition of criminal co-conspirators whose operatives are in the process of effectively plunging all humanity, indeed all life on earth, into a hellish abyss.
While the writers at Veterans Today, myself included, cover all manner of subjects a common understanding shared by most VT writers and its many avid readers is that the events of 9/11 were engineered from within US agencies at Israel’s behest. A primary aim was to transform Israel’s regional enemies into the global enemies of the so-called “West.” In the process the otherwise obsolete agencies that had emerged from the capitalist side of the Cold War were delivered a new transnational foe to seek out, combat and vanquish.
Increased military budgets, widened police powers and enhanced political prestige for those who successfully made the transition from anti-communism to anti-terrorism were thereby secured. The neo-liberal transition from the social welfare state to the stock market state was transacted providing governments with a new justifications for intrusive intervention in everybody’s personal and commercial business.
9/11, therefore, was partly about maintaining the industrial viability of the permanent war economy that had grown up in the United States since the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. While this false flag operation maintained some elements of continuity in the US political economy, the 9/11 Black Op also provided the new overlords of Western geopolitical strategy with the keys to the castle of the world’s dominant national security apparatus.
The installation of the new directors began in earnest with the expertly engineered media misrepresentations of the events of 9/11 in ways that brought the creation, amplification, manipulation and exploitation of Islamophobia to new heights of diabolical cunning.
This subversion of mass media was the essential component of the global coup d’état, one that hastened the transfer of imperial power from US institutions to Israel and to the many worldwide networks of Zionist banking, media, military and security interests that have come to be identified with the power, prestige and Machiavellian duplicity of the Jewish state.
Thanks in significant measure to the work of VT insiders it is becoming more broadly understood that the upper echelons of all major military and intelligence forces in the world are well aware that Israeli-American neocons were the directing masterminds who pulled off 9/11, albeit in a flawed way that fell far short of the full extent of the destruction planned for that day.
The indicators are strong that in recent months Gordon Duff and other VT insiders have received a major cache of new material exposing many heretofore unknown operation facets in and around the September 11 event. The origins of the new information are said to involve Edward Snowden and material passed through ex-KGB figures who are also among the VT circles of special forces operatives, weapons experts, and geopolitical analysts.
Part of the new revelations have to do with the application of new generations of secret nuclear technology to produce the tremendous surges of energy that transformed three of the world’s premier steel frames skyscrapers into vapour and talcum-power like dust in three unprecedented displays of controlled demolition.
The use of mini-nukes and related nuclear technology is tied to more far ranging accounts of how nuclear weapons have been stolen and passed along, including to Israel, to provide material that has already been detonated in a variety of military and false flag theatres. These thefts together with military responses to the sabotage from within speak of ongoing divisions within the martial and intelligence apparatus of the ailing superpower. These divisions have become deeply intertwined with the myriad of complexities in the covert operations of the privatized terror economy.
As I have come to understand over the years, source materials garnered from insider interactions among operatives in state intelligence agencies and their corporate spinoffs often fail to provide the certainty of fixed points of published references that can be cited, checked, checked against other sources, and listed in bibliographies as academicians are accustomed to doing.
Intelligence operatives are prone to play one another, to trade info, to finesse various agendas and even to sprinkle bits of disinfo into rich stews of new revelations. In some instances the difference between life and death hangs in the balance of deviation from the unwritten rules of transaction among spies, counterintelligence operatives and the like. Written accounts of recording their transactions among themselves are therefore sometimes subtle and tricky narratives to interpret.
Notwithstanding such interpretive problems, provisos, and cautions, however, the stark outlines of a newly exposed landscape of contemporary history is being revealed at VT clarifying the nature of the origins and ongoing machinations in the still unfolding 9/11 Wars. A primary attribute of the 9/11 Wars is the audaciousness of the psychological operations entailed in the aggressions. A previously undercover world is emerging into the light of skeptical examination in the Age of the Internet.
As a platform of resistance to tyranny for personnel who have worked, or do now work, at the heart of the ailing superpower’s elaborate Armed Forces, Veterans Today renders some protection to those soldiers of conscience who refuse collaborate in silence with the sabotage from within. As the investigation into 9/11 proceeds it becomes increasingly difficult for those thousands of operatives who played parts in the 9/11 assaults and the enormous deceptions that followed to hide from their more conscientious peers.
Ken O’Keefe is a former US Marine, a Former Human Shield in Iraq, and a Veteran of the of the Military Confrontation between the Israeli Defense Force and the Defenders of the Mavi Marmara, a Ship Attacked in the Mediterranean Ocean While Bringing Humanitarian Aid to the Inmates of the Gazan Concentration Camp. Many See Ken O’Keefe’s Career as an Exemplary, Displaying Among Other Values True Military Valor in Face of Adversity.
On 9/11 itself many personnel at, for instance, NORAD or the Pentagon, might have been unaware of the consequences of their actions because of need-to-know obfuscation, narrow circumscribing of assigned responsibilities, and the fog of confusion created by concurrent drills meant to resemble the real assault on America that did take place on that bright September morning in 2001. Now, however, the hiding places are becoming less.
Veterans Today providing some sanctuary and a base of operations for whistle blowers within the military. The controversial news platform is also turning the tables on those soldiers that chose the route of upward mobility with the makers of the global coup d’état over loyalty to the people and constitution of the United States as well as to the real safety and security of the global community.
Benjamin Netanyahu Strange Excursion to Paris, January 2015
The convergence of all these many forces seemed to be on display in Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu’s strange behaviour during the official ceremonies of mourning following the murder of twelve people at the head offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in early January. Within hours of the violent episode the alternative media was thick with observations that the whole operation stank of a Mossad-style intervention aimed a cranking up Islamophobia and with it the current round of anti-terrorist initiatives.
It seemed that Netanyahu was simultaneously seeking to take credit for the operation while joining in the procession of world leaders marking the occasion. Netanyahu had been asked by the French president, Francois Hollande, not to attend at all. He nevertheless showed up but was snubbed by the organizers who did not put the Israeli prime minister and his security police on the first bus to the site of the world photo opportunity.
For a time Bibi was in the second row of the procession. But he then pushed his way to the lead row and proceeded to wave victoriously to onlookers like some sort of conquering Caesar who had taken control of the French City of Lights by force of arms.
It was almost like Bibi is playing to two audiences. The biggest but secondary audience were the masses of ordinary folks that are prey to the deception that all the false flag events are not staged but rather genuine and independent acts of Islamic jihadism motivated by nothing more than raw hatred and contempt for the freedom and liberties of citizens in the Judeo-Christian West.
Netanyahu less numerous but more important audience is composed of those that are well aware of the Likudnik leader’s instrumental role in the invention and oversight of the Global War on Terror in all its various Islamophobic incarnations. Try as some of us might to break the spell of the deception, Bibi is well aware that the elaborate illusion is for the time being protected by networks of co-conspirators in charge of large numbers of media operations seemingly spread across a wide spectrum of political and ideological perspectives.
Bibi’s importance in the Paris anti-terrorist rituals is based on his leading role in formulating the general concept of a war on terror with his series of conferences culminating in the publication of his edited book in the early 1980s, Terrorism: How the West Can Win. Bibi’s paradigm was given fuller academic expression in the 1990s by Samuel Huntington’s Clash of Civilizations which, in turn, built on Bernard Lewis’s earlier work.
Following 9/11 Bibi is on record as having repeated several times the proposition that the events of 9/11 were good for Israel. The most prominent Israeli politician in the world has been unrelenting in playing the lethal semantic game of basically equating the movement for Palestinian survival and self-determination with terrorism at every turn.
Netanyahu is skilled in his cunning condemnation of ISIL, the hugely hyped Islamic terrorist group that tellingly wants only to fight other Muslim groups and strangely never wants to fight Israel. Netanyahu never misses an opportunity to confuse the Islamic State, which is not a state, with the Islamic Republic of Iran which is becoming a global superpower in spite of the cyber attacks, economic warfare, assassination plots and blatant propaganda directed its way by the complex of Western governments that take their lead from Israel.
The shootings at the Charlie Hebdo offices were followed by the shooting of four Parisian Jews in a kosher market. This episode was quickly seized upon by Mr. Netanyahu as an opportunity to promote Jewish immigration to Israel from France and elsewhere in Europe.
At the Great Synagogue in Paris Benjamin Netanyahu’s security detail man handled the French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, directing him where to sit. Valls audibly protested the insult to France’s dignity and jurisdiction. President Hollande subsequently exited the religious venue just as the the Israeli Prime Minister was about to speak. The imperiousness of Netanyahu throughout begs the question of whether or not he conceived of himself as the executive in chief of the entire operation of the “Je suis Charlie” operation.
The rebranding of the 9/11 Wars, initially sold to the public in the name of the Global War on Terror, involves the Dark Op rejigging of the imagery of the Islamic terrorism. The largely manufactured imagery of Islamic terrorism involves the creation of media representations combining some elements lifted from reality with the scientific fabrication of Disneyesque archetypes and caricatures of evil meant to leverage the potent political currency of fear.
Since 9/11 the implanting, cultivation, manipulation, and exploitation of public fears of Islamic terrorism have become big business. The generation of Islamophobia through fear of Islamic terrorism has become a core element in the lucrative public perceptions industry. The illusions produced by this business provide grist for the propaganda mill that regularly injects the deadly toxin of industrial-strength hatred into the contaminated mainstream of most media of mass communications these days.
The biggest part of the Public Relations industry derives its most lucrative profit streams from the promotion of aggressive warfare through the engineering of public opinion hostile to the demonized Other. Since 9/11 this promotion of aggressive warfare leans heavily on the enterprise of whipping up readily exploitable hatred towards Islamic religion, Islamic philosophy, Islamic culture, Islamic people and Islamic countries.
As the core polity at the convergence of all these elements, the Islamic Republic of Iran is subject to an especially concerted campaign of engineered Islamophobia in the West. Where Iran under the Shah’s rule was an obedient servant of Western interests, the very strength and viability of Iran’s Islamic revolution since 1979 has made the national bedrock of Persian civilization the primary obstacle to the imperial aspirations of Likudnik Israel.
Iran, like Islamic people more generally, is therefore been especially subject to the subversive deployment of fraudulent media coverage to produce the necessary mental environment for foreign wars combined with domestic pacification of dissidence at home. Unfortunately, purposely induced Islamophobia is being integrated into the top-down regimes of governance imposed from above on most of the so-called Western democracies.
From Red Scares and Anti-Communism
to Islamophobia and Anti-Terrorism
The mixture of the spectacle of made-to-order violence in Ottawa, Sydney, and Paris with the orchestration of highly engineered media coverage is reminiscent of the brand of media manipulations developed by Madison Avenue’s PR guru, Edward Bernays.
A nephew of Sigmund Fraud, Bernays culminated his career as the pioneer of photo ops and spin doctoring with a series of elaborate media ruses. Designed for the CIA and the US Armed Forces, the aim of these media deceptions was to misrepresent purposely the US-backed coup in Guatemala in the early 1950s.
To protect the monopoly of power amassed by the United Fruit Company the Guatemalan elected leader, social democrat Jacobo Arbenz, was removed from power in favour of a series of imposed military dictatorships. This strategy of US domination through covertly engineered regime change would become a staple of US foreign policy throughout the Cold War.
The Guatemalan psy op became the archetypal psychological operation designed by America’s Father of so-called Public Relations to promote the interests of those companies attached to the US-led side of the Cold War. The PR creation of invented narratives as a replacement for the truth extends with even greater force into the present age when the memes of anti-terrorism have been made to replicate many of the Bernaysian memes of anti-communism.
A primary factor governing the relatively smooth transition from one enemy to the next was the the will to maintain the prestige, wealth and political clout of the many elite interests tied to the elaborate and corrupt apparatus of the national security state. There is nothing accidental in the fact that the class who derived much power from dominating and exploiting Cold War anti-communism retained and even strengthened its position of omnipotence in the era of institutionalized anti-terrorism. Dick Cheney is a primary personification of those who maintained their class privilege by shifting gears to exploit first anti-communism and then anti-terrorism.
As the sophistication of Cold War propaganda progressed, Bernays’ brand of anti-communist spin was combined with the fabrication of concocted terrorist events in NATO’s oversight of Operation Gladio in Europe. Concurrently, the CIA covertly purchased the services of thousands of journalist in Project Mockingbird to slant, subvert and subordinate news reporting in ways thought to advance US foreign policy.
The early days of Operation Gladio and Mockingbird can be looked back upon as experimental child’s play compared to its contemporary extensions involving higher levels of institutionalized professional subversion. From this subversion flows the 24/7 provision in the mass media of false public narratives to cover over the real nature of the crimes against humanity forming the stock in trade of the world’s dominant criminal cabal.
The masters and agents of this Organized Criminal Cabal have seized illegitimate forms of control over the very life support systems, both natural and man-made, on which we all depend for survival. We are therefore universally held hostage to the gross malfeasance of the psychopaths and kleptocrats whose comparative advantage in ruthlessness has enabled them to make strong claims to most of the main inheritances of both natural history and of human civilization.
As Naomi Klein and many others have documented, a key device in the manufacturing of consent among domestic populations for foreign wars or for otherwise unpopular alterations of the political economy of home countries has been to create and exploit disorienting disasters. While Klein emphasizes the deployment and exploitation of shock to implement disaster capitalism, her timid analysis does not go nearly far enough.
Especially disappointing was Ms. Klein’s characterization of 9/11, the most jolting and iconographic illustration of her main thesis illuminating the Shock Doctrine’s effectiveness as an instrument of social control. Klein’s deceptive depiction of the events of 9/11 as the outcome of a mere “intelligence failure” is representative of the kind of cowardice or worse in critical analysis that is crippling the political effectiveness of the progressive left. How can the antiwar movement have any significant impact at all if its leadership refuses to address clearly and cogently the deeper nature of the origins and attributes of the 9/11 Wars?
The Anatomy of Fraud, Deception, and Mass Murder Through State Terrorism
The necessary precondition for mounting with popular support aggressive assaults on targeted groups is to dehumanize target populations in the minds of the aggressor populations. Julius Streicher’s Der Stürmer once performed this task of propaganda, preparing German public opinion for the mass slaughter of Jews during the culminating years of the Third Reich.
The role once played by Der Stürmer set patterns once again on display in the barrage of anti-Islam messages that have become the specialty of the Zionist run media as epitomized by Rupert Murdoch’s communications empire including Fox News.
Ever since the full power of the Shock Doctrine was illustrated on 9/11, the pace of false flag terrorism combined with unrelenting manipulation of the mass media has been accelerating as the need grows to turn aggressor populations more radically and ruthlessly against target groups. While so far the target populations are mostly Muslim, the anti-terrorist propaganda is in no way limited to Muslims. It now extends to purposely vague and ill-defined concepts making potential enemies of those accused by state inquisitors of “radicalization” or “extremism.”
To accomplish the task of smearing targeted groups the so-called intelligence agencies tasked with so-called counter-terrorist activities have been very active in identifying unstable individual as assets to be played and exploited. A classic example of such an unstable, drug addicted individual in constant trouble with the law was Michael Zahef-Bibeau, the supposed ‘recent Muslim convert” and alleged ISIL supporter said to have been the Ottawa shooter.
After committing a lethal “act of war” at the main war cenotaph in Canada’s national capital, where he was conveniently photographed by an unnamed tourist at the key moment, Zahef-Bibeau received a police escort to the Canadian Parliament Buildings from which his body disappeared after some sort of loud but unseen shooting exchange.
The supposed killer of Zahef-Bibeau, Parliamentary Sargeant at Arms, Kevin Vickers, then received a medal for his act of bravery from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. This strange sequence was all reported dutifully and without even minor skepticism by Canada’s Zionist-run press corps on the opening day of Parliament just as Canada’s Zionist federal government led by Prime Minister Stephen Harper was bringing in edified police powers to evade due process of law in the name of anti-terrorism.
The repertoire of deception is extensive extending to the hiring of patsies to be blamed for concocted acts of violence necessary for creating the political and monetary currency of commodified fear. Miraculously discovered passports, counterfeit or real, have become one of the hallmarks of false flag terrorism. Such identification documents are planted and quickly found in the rush to put forward designated culprits for instant trial by media.
Most of the time there is no semblance whatsoever of careful police investigations or objective reporting of these manufactured episodes. Because deceased patsies, crisis actors and accomplices can tell no tales, more and more they are made to die in the course of the sensationalized events. In the Paris Helric Fredou, the Police Commissioner in Charge of investigating the Charlie Hebdo shootings, supposedly committed suicide in the midst of his endeavours.
When terror shock is made to strike many crucial but vulnerable protections of law are sacrificed to open yet more space for the unbridled machinations of power politics. The achievements derived from generations of gradual progress in the slow evolution of juridical safeguards are overturned in a moment as media-generated hysteria feeds the rapid growth of the privatized terror economy.
The endless imagery of Islamic terror in news media becomes the stuff of caricature in, for instance, the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo or the some of the cinematic offerings of Hollywood propaganda machine. The core tactic in promoting genocide and facilitating other crimes against humanity is currently on clear public display in Clint Eastwood’s propaganda classic, American Sniper.
A movie star who emerged from the classic tradition of American Westerns glorifying the westward expansion of the United States through genocidal wars directed at Native Americans, Eastwood has extended this tradition to the US invasion of Iraq in utter disregard of international law.
As I have made clear in my introduction to The American Empire and the Fourth World, the US propaganda to justify its assaults in the Middle East draw heavily from the language of the American Indian wars as essential to the imagined ascent of civilization over savagery.
Chris Kyle, the real life sniper on which the Eastwood film is based, made it clear that he saw those who passed in front of his weapon of mass murder as Islamic savages, as equivalents of those American Indians who were the primal enemy that the US Armed Forces were initially created to defeat.
This Hollywood blockbuster demonstrates how far the arts and science of propaganda have come since Adolf Hitler and Leni Riefenstahl got together in 1935 to make Triumph of the Will. If Leni Riefenstahl’s capacity to escape prosecution in the war crimes proceedings of the Nuremberg Tribunal is allowed to prevail, it is quite likely that film director Clint Eastwood will be able to evade legal accountability for his anti-Muslim production whose intent is to provide false justification for US crimes against humanity in Iraq.
While the post-9/11 role of the Israeli government in promoting the US-invasion of Iraq is never explicitly mentioned in American Sniper, it is quite clear how the film’s neocon director conceived of the movie’s larger geopolitical function as justification for the spearheading by the US Armed Forces of the Jewish state’s wars.
Where the Jews of Europe were once the target of this kind of sinister media manipulation, today it is Arabs, Persians and the worldwide community of Muslims, the ummah, who are becoming the object of the new Holocaust of systematic murder and persecution.
Increasingly this new Holocaust of state-sponsored mass murder, displacement, and public denigration of Muslims is integrated into the foreign and domestic policies of those Western countries subject to domination by the Zionist media cartels including Crown corporations like the BBC in Great Britain, the CBC in Canada, and ABC in Australia.
The hypocrisy and double standards have become stupendous. They are marked in the disparity between hate speech laws designed to silence criticism of Israel and Zionism on the one hand and officialdom’s encouragement and embrace of expressions of Islamophobia on the other.
What can be said of the massive public valorization in Paris of Charlie Hebdo’s Muslim-bashing cartoons as the quintessence of free speech, especially after Frances’s banning of Islamic dress and pro-Palestinian demonstrations, especially after the sustained efforts to censor and criminalize the humour of Dieudonne M’bala M’bala?
The Role of the Academy as a Participant or Critic of the Twenty-First Century With Hunt
Officialdom’s expression of support for freedom of speech in the capital of the French Enlightenment and of the French Revolution is especially farcical given the high level of censorship that prevails now in all of the mainstream media, in much of the so-called alternative media, and in the academy as well. This veil of censorship is imposed in increasingly obvious ways in the vain effort to hold together a growing, yet simultaneously collapsing, sand castle of lies and fabrications to maintain the big deceptions on which the dominant criminal cabal depend to maintain the illegitimate rule of their murderous kleptocracy.
Rather than engage the best representatives of the vast and growing citizens’ investigation into the deployment of strategic fables to maintain many new variations on old master-slave relationships, those that own, manage and operate dominant systems of mass communication have withdrawn into cocoons of self-justifying narratives.
Instead of addressing, for instance, the evidence of what did or did not transpire on 9/11, well rewarded agents of deception like Jonathan Kay and Michael Shermer are contracted to come up with pseudo-anthropologies of “underground conspiracism” or pseudo-psychological treatises on “Why People Believe Weird Things.”
The academy is by and large just as guilty as the minions of mass communications in moving away from empiricism towards the political and financial expedience of close collaboration with the machinations of power. As an accomplished student of ethnic relations whose book is among the many being removed from public libraries, school curricula and the like, Patricia Williams writes in The Guardian, “There has been an unfortunate uptick in academic book bannings and firings, made worse by a nationwide disparagement of teachers, teachers’ unions and scholarship itself.”
Here in Canada the anti-intellectualism of the Canadian government has become so grim that a Union of Concerned Scientists from around the world felt the need to address a joint letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. That document condemns his government for the “rapid decline” in fundamental “freedoms” to compile and report findings in a variety of venues including international conferences. The authors assert, Canada’s role “in basic research, environmental, health, and other public science is in jeopardy.”
The University of Toronto provides a prime example of the willingness of Universities to downgrade the pursuit of knowledge no matter how inconvenient to power for more opportunistic pursuits in the service of power. The U of T’s Munk School of Global Affairs, for instance, has given itself over to working with the government of Canada to assist the government of Israel in destabilizing Iran.
On the federal government’s web page where the Munk School is referred to the essay begins with a sentence outlining Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird’s declaration that “Canada views the government of Iran as the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today.” Acting on this position the Canadian government shut down its embassy in Tehran in 2012 and declared all remaining Iranian diplomats in Canada to be “personae non gratae.”
This condemnation of Iran has nothing to do with acting on the interests of Canada and everything to do with the Islamophobic worldview promoted by the Israeli government. The Munk School has allowed itself to become an instrument of that Islamophobic worldview. By siding with power in this way it became the recipient of public funding from Canada’s Zionist federal government to serve the Israeli-directed effort to abnegate Iran’s Shia-based government.
Through the Munk School the University of Toronto has accepted $9 million to conduct cyber operations directed at in the final analysis at encouraging dissidents to overthrow a viable form of governance in a relatively stable Islamic country with frequent elections. These elections speak of the existence a degree of self-determination in Iran at variance with the more authoritarian regimes of the Canadian government’s allies in the region such as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.
The integration of the newly-minted Munk School of Global Affairs into the University of Toronto speaks of the power of money to corrupt any semblance of academic integrity in today’s centres of supposedly higher learning. Peter Munk negotiated a contract with David Naylor, the former president of the University of Toronto.
Naylor was rewarded for his compliance with Munk’s agenda. He was appointed to a lucrative position on the Board of Barrick Mining Company. This Board and its related agencies have hosted the likes of George H. W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, Brian Mulroney, Al Gore and other leading figures who act as liaisons between the deep state and the public state.
A Hungarian Jew who escape Nazi occupied Europe, Peter Munk served as Adnan Khashoggi’s front man in the founding of the Barrick Gold Mining Company. Khashoggi was the notorious Saudi Arabian arm’s dealer who became a victim of the Iran-Contra scandal in the late 1980s when he was exposed as one of Ronald Reagan’s secret agents who sold weapons through a Toronto company to the Islamic Republic.
The scandal also brought down the notorious Bank of Credit and Commerce International, the BCCI. This bank for drug deals as well as CIA-funded jihadists in Afghanistan and elsewhere forms one of the financial tap roots of the privatized terror economy that is currently acquiring such strengthen under the oversight of its Zionist patrons.
The Munk School can be counted upon not to look too deeply into these connections in its investigations into Global Affairs. Instead its faculty will probably continue to engage themselves with projects like continuing a war on terror that demonizes the Islamic Republic of Iran while turning a blind eye to, for instance, the possible if not probable role of Stephen Harper’s government in what shows every indication of being an engineered shooting event in Ottawa on Oct. 22.
The Munk School’s contract with the University of Toronto is based on the U of T’s promise to develop the curriculum, staffing and research of the new institution under the direction of a board whose members will be chosen by the trustees of Peter Munk’s estate. The funding that has come from Munk himself and will come from Munk’s estate after the death of the 86 year old plutocrat depends on the indefinite continuation of this external form of academic control.
So far Peter Munk has exercised considerable control in using the Munk School as a kind of think tank to spin off other think tanks like the Devonshire Institute. The purpose of this initiative was to persuade the Canadian government not to regulate the foreign operations of Canadian mining companies that are becoming notorious for the extent of their environmental degradation and the rapacious of their treatment of Indigenous peoples the world over.
Peter Munk’s Munk School of Global Affairs has the clout to discourage faculty at the University of Toronto from doing the the kind of scholarly research, pedagogy and publication that is needed at this juncture to at least put obstacles in the way of a growing culture of deception where evidence, reason and truth is considered an enemy of those in power. There is no better proof of this expansionary process than the developing twenty-first witch hunt on terrorism.
This witch hunts steal scarce resources and attention from the many more substantial dangers facing humanity especially in the sphere of our environment where clean water, fresh air and healthy food are increasingly difficult to find. Moreover the witch hunt is a recipe for never-ending war and all the death and mayhem it entails. The unrelenting with hunt is based on the worst kind of deception, lies that are highly demoralizing, degrading, and destructive to everyone, but especially to Muslims.
