Nessuna Presidenza degli Stati Uniti è completa senza la cerimonia di pacificazione per ebrei e arabi a South Lawn alla Casa Bianca. Il primo è stato Jimmy Carter che ha fatto piovere benevolenza su Begin e Sadat; poi è stato Bill Clinton a spingere Arafat e Rabin insieme; e ora abbiamo Donald Trump raggiante con orgoglio a Bibi e ABZ (Abdullah bin Zayed degli Emirati Arabi Uniti) mentre siedono davanti a lui. È un eccellente servizio fotografico e un potente simbolo.
President saves Jews from Savage Arab Fury”, or “Pax Americana makes
Peace between Nations”. It could bring the Nobel Peace Prize; it has
electoral value; it will go down into the history books. Coming just
after the opening of the first Muslim state Embassy in Jerusalem
(Kosovo), it has turned Trump into a major peacemaker and a great
benefactor of Jews, for Israel paid nothing for this achievement.
peace with Egypt, Israel paid with Sinai; for Arafat’s agreement, Israel
authorized the creation of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA);
for the last deal, nothing at all. Unless you count its kind permission
for the superpower to sell its jets to the UAE, or their postponement of
the Jordan Valley annexation, something Bibi was keen to put off
anyway. A great achievement for Israel, no doubt.
It is a wonderful gift for the Jewish New Year, or Rosh Hashanah
coming Friday, but there is precious little joy in the air in Israel.
The ceremony, broadcast in full on Israeli TV, brought little cheer or
comfort to the Israelis. Exactly on the eve of Rosh Hashanah on Friday,
the Jewish state will return to the total incarceration of the lockdown.
The schools will remain closed; people will not be able to venture more
than 500 meters from home. Restaurants and shops will be shut down. The
Med will be declared out of bounds, despite clement weather and warm
is to become the first nation to go into their second corona lockdown,
just as Israel was the first in the Western world to enter the first
lockdown. Another world’s first, and for sure other nations will follow
it into disaster, as they did it first time. The professionals, heads of
leading hospitals, prominent infection experts, objected; they said
that there is no need for such a far-reaching measure. The head of the
Rabin Medical Center said, “A full closure is not required”. This year, fewer people died in Israel
than last year in the corresponding period, but the PM decided to lock
down the country anyway, to spread darkness into the nations.
Meanwhile it will last three weeks,
as long as the High Holidays, the sequence of autumn feasts starting
with the New Year continuing with the Day of Atonement and terminating
with the Simchat Torah. This year the Jews won’t have the feast; Jewish
families won’t assemble around festive tables dipping apple in honey to
ensure good and sweet year. They won’t gather at all, as their Covid
officials forbid getting together, barring even leaving their homes
except for a hasty trip to the nearest shop.
observant Jews of Israel are against lockdown anytime, even more so at
the Jewish holidays, especially at the most important holidays of the
Jewish year. They valiantly fought the police during the first lockdown.
As the cabinet ruled to introduce the second lockdown, the Orthodox
Jewish minister Yaakov Litzman resigned from the government. The new
Minister of Public Security, ex-ShinBet (Israeli FBI) agent, the first openly gay cabinet member, Amir Ohana promised to strong-arm lockdown refuseniks into compliance.
This year the Jews of the Holy Land won’t blow Shofar’s horn and they won’t hear the Kol Nidrey
prayer releasing them from sins past and forthcoming. Even in the days
of the Inquisition, Jews were allowed to observe the commandments. Not
so now. The synagogues will be locked, with max 10 believers in
attendance. It means the vast majority of Israeli Jews won’t be able to
go to the synagogue for Yom Kippur for the first time ever in known
Corona Tsar of Israel, Ronnie Gamzu, is not satisfied with locking
Israeli synagogues. Many thousands of Jews from Israel, the US, and
elsewhere celebrate the New Year in the Ukrainian town of Uman, where a
charismatic mystic Hassidic Tsadik, Rabbi Nachman of Uman, is buried. He
taught that by celebrating Rosh Hashanah with him, one fulfils all the
commandments at once. Ronnie Gamzu called the Jewish president of the
Ukraine, Mr Zelensky and demanded that he forbid Jewish pilgrimage to
Uman. Zelensky immediately granted his request and thousands of Jews
suddenly found themselves on the wrong side of the Ukrainian border as
Ukrainian guards blocked their passage.
Jews stuck in the bogs on the Belarusian side of the border raised hell
and called Netanyahu. He said he never told anyone to stop them; it was
entirely the initiative of Gamzu, who had acted outside of his writ.
This pathetic story exemplifies the Israeli Corona official’s attitude
to faith – they are ready to go far, very far indeed just in order to
stop people from getting together and praying to God Almighty. “If you
find yourself surrounded by police,” said a Jewish father to his son in
the Nazi-occupied Poland, “Go to the German policeman and beg, he will
let you out. If there is no German, go to a Pole or Ukrainian; your last
bet should be the Jewish policeman for they are very conscientious”,
thus spoke Jewish folklore.
It appears that the obscure force (let us call it Factor X)
behind the officials, behind the Covid pandemics and lockdowns, is
nothing less than a hatred of God and organized religion, be it
Christian (they forbade Communion in many countries), Muslim (they
banned the Hajj), and in an unusual twist, even Judaism. Usually the
Jews are exempt from anti-religious bias because even the strictest
atheist is Jewish by birth and saves his hatred for Christ and Allah.
Not in this case; our Factor X is an equal opportunity hater. It is a
super-Grinch: the Grinch stole Christmas, but Factor X stole Christmas,
Eid el Fitr and Yom Kippur in one go.
It is particularly hard on the old men who are thus sentenced to die lonely deaths. Haim Ramon,
former health minister of Israel, proposed to lock down everyone over
65 until next summer. “They can see their grandchildren from a distance
in the open air once a week,” he proposed. Let us overlook the cruelty
of his proposal for the elderly, but his objective fits well with Factor
X’s hatred of faith. Old people are the living transmitters of
tradition to the younger generations. Stripped of our elders, in concert
with the deliberate closure of all the houses of worship, our religious
tradition may well die out, and our children will grow up in a godless
world, without mercy or grace.
In England, the government has already promised a grim Christmas;
people are forbidden to “mingle” on the streets and in the parks;
citizens are encouraged to snitch on their neighbours who break the
notorious “rule of six” – that is, more than six persons can’t be
together inside or outside. Thus two couples with two kids each stopping
to chat in a park will be arrested for law-breaking, cheerfully announced
Priti Patel, the Home Secretary of the proud Brits. The church-goers
will have to observe “social distancing” and services are expected to
conclude as quickly as possible, with worshippers encouraged to leave
“promptly” afterwards. No wonder that the Archbishop of Canterbury, the
“Pope” of the Anglican Church was horrified and asked the government to
that terror has been unleashed despite the obvious success of the
Swedish way, for Sweden avoided the lockdown and now they have no
“second wave”, (whatever that means), and they have had fewer sick and
dead patients than any of their Nordic neighbours. It seems that the
arrangers of the “pandemics” want us to suffer. Who are they, besides
being sadists and Satanists? Why should we continue to treat the
creators of the virus and the promoters of the punitive measures as two
separate entities? Are our lockdown experts lucky opportunists who
stumbled into their life’s work, or did they create the circumstances of
their success as well? Shouldn’t we follow Occam’s Razor and consider
them one entity? Should we not consider that the virus might have been
created and seeded by the very entities enjoying the results?
may be reminded here of 9/11, when the people behind the attack were
probably the people who enjoyed the fruits of the War on Terror,
including the displacement of 40 million Middle Easterners, the refugee
crisis in Europe, the destruction of Iraq and Afghanistan, the global
narcotics trade, the US Patriot Act, massive surveillance, the rise of
Israel and the fall of the Arabs. The introduction of the scapegoats,
namely of Osama bin Laden’s gang of cave dwellers, makes no sense in
hindsight. Likewise, the story of the bat-eating Chinese seems
superfluous in the progress of the global Covid regime. It makes sense
to unite the perpetrators of the virus attack and the enforcers of
lockdown, and to consider them as one entity, our Factor X.
observe that Factor X wants to separate and isolate us, for religion,
feasts and family gatherings unite people. ‘No Man is an Island,’ said John Donne,
a man of the cloth himself, but Factor X wants us to be on separate
islands in a vast ocean. It is plausible that it wants humans to die
out, as a breed; to cease reproducing; to commit suicide, to have no
hope, no God, no neighbour to love.
Who Done It?
is this killjoy Factor X? Could it be China, releasing a virus and then
pioneering the lockdown as the shining model of dealing with it, in
order to undermine Western economy? It is unlikely that China could be
able to influence Western minds to such an extent. They may make
iPhones, but their impact on Western discourse is next to nil.
Our own Ron Unz in his recent piece
connected Factor X with the Cold War between the US and China. He
cautiously dismantled the case against China. While the national health
authorities in China only learned of the growing Wuhan disease outbreak
at the very end of December, in late November a unit of the US Defense
Intelligence Agency (DIA) had already distributed a secret report
describing a “cataclysmic” disease outbreak taking place in Wuhan. It
means the Chinese could not possibly be guilty, while the DIA’s early
knowledge implies a very sinister conclusion. In the words of Ron Unz,
“Unless our intelligence agencies have pioneered the technology of
precognition, I think this may have happened for the same reason that
arsonists have the earliest knowledge of future fires.”
The intelligence agencies could be evil enough to release the deadly virus upon the world. They could be silly enough to overlook the possibility and probability of the virus smiting their own people. They could be coarse enough to disregard this probability. They could
facilitate arrival of a sick Iranian businessman (his name is known to
Iranian services) from Wuhan to Tehran. But it is hard to imagine they
could force lockdowns, press the IMF and WHO to support this plan,
organize massive fake reports, and fight religion and God. I respect (if
this is the right word) the spies for what they are, but I consider
they would be out of their depth in an enterprise of such magnitude.
They could do some parts of it (poisoning the wells, employing their
spying applications), but the whole thing is too big for them.
Our friend Gregory Sinaisky
in a long piece wonders who could fabricate the pandemics and why. He
turns to media campaign as the key element of the mega-event, and asks,
“Is there somebody out there who is capable of organising a world-wide
media campaign supported by governments and international
organisations?” and he answers: “Yes, we can be sure that such players
exist because we have a recent example of one such media campaign that
was clearly artificially created. Coincidentally, this campaign was also
aimed at convincing the population that we are in immediate danger, and
that it will require drastic measures to save us. I mean, of course,
the Greta Thunberg campaign.”
This is an astute observation. Greta Thunberg’s campaign is indeed the precursor of Covid, though on a much smaller scale.
blames the false pandemics on “US plutocrats [who] conveniently control
most of the world’s media and have a huge network of ‘charitable’
foundations and affiliated NGO institutions all over the world. This
network has been used for generations as a tool for influencing media,
educational institutions, governments and international organizations,
for social engineering and ideological control… We will simply call all
the foundations, together with think tanks and NGOs, the Plutocratic
the US plutocrats (that is, the American über-wealthy) control all that?
I think they would be amazed to learn that, especially “for
generations”, bearing in mind that the US was not a very significant
factor before the WWI. In my view, the rich are not that smart. But the
network exists; I have called its obscure controllers The Masters of Discourse.
claims that they brought the pandemics upon us because of the high debt
problem, or by their inability to continue colonial plunder.
Alternatively, a notable commenter to his text suggests that it was done
because of overproduction of capital. In other words, the bank-lending
rate is so close to zero, or even negative, that the whole machinery of
capitalism was deluged in a flood of capital, and needed a major war, or
indeed a global pandemic, to use it up.
Sinaisky claims that “atomization of society, breaking up community
solidarity, eroding all non-monetary connections between people,
destroying family relations and weakening blood ties, is a long-standing
plutocratic project. Now, using this fake pandemic, the plutocrats have
gone even further, now they train us to see each other not as friend,
not as brother, not even as a source of profit, but mainly as a source
of mortal infection.” I wonder what makes him think that is an object of
plutocratic desire? Certainly rich people want to make money and have
more power, agreed. Is it necessary for them to atomise society? Who
will they and their kids socialize with in such a ruined world?
am not sure that there is a human agency with such goals. A non-human
factor is a much more suitable culprit. In the old days, such a culprit
was called Satan, and there were mighty organisations aka churches that
fought Satan. In a charming movie, Luc Besson’s Fifth Element, ‘Love’
defeats ‘the Shadow’, the personified evil that was about to obliterate
Earth. Call it Satan, call it Shadow, the thing surely has human
collaborationists in the mainstream media. I wrote about it in a piece
called The Shadow of Zog. Indeed media should be sorted out in order to deal with it.
this lucky country that avoided lockdown and its consequences, was
saved by a rare media misstep. (This story has never been published
though it is known to many Swedes.) Corona propaganda was carried out by
the same liberal Bonnier-owned newspaper, DN (Dagens Nyheter), that
played up Greta Thunberg. (Sinaisky’s senses served him right: indeed
Covid is a new Greta multiplied by a factor of 50). The Greta campaign
had as its favourite high horse flygskam, or flight-shaming. Stop taking flights to lower carbon emissions, was the idea. Now we have no flights at all, so this movement disappeared after achieving its goals.
February 2020, the DN organised a week-long sleeper train culture trip
to North Italy for the Greta-following liberal elite. A berth on this
train was priced starting at ten thousand Euros. The group went up to
the Italian Alps and down to the Carnival in Venice and finally returned
home, full to the brim with interesting experiences and coronavirus
infections. A few days after the train returned to Stockholm, the
disease broke out at large. Many of the liberal journalists that
travelled on the Corona Express (as the train became known) fell sick,
and their close relatives suffered, too. This incident caused the death
of many elderly Jews, parents or uncles of those liberal journalists. It
was a media phenomenon, and the Jewish media reported
that the death rate among Swedish Jews was 14 times higher than their
share of the population (well, it is not as bad as it sounds; only nine
very old Jews died, all over 80).
the people in authority knew all about the Corona Express, the liberal
lobby was too ashamed to call for quarantine against the disease they
has carried to Sweden. (Or they did call, but in sotto voce.)
Furthermore, the DN was their only significant liberal media outlet, as
Bonnier had sold his TV channel to a state-owned company in December
2019, making heaps of money but losing his ability to influence people.
Because of this freak combination of forces, Sweden left its health
policy in the hands of local professionals and remained free, while its
neighbouring countries transferred the responsibility to globalist
politicians and embraced quarantine.
the liberal Blairite media (beginning with the NY Times and the
Guardian) played a key part in the Corona crisis. They were the piper;
but who ordered the piper? In my view, it was a non-human agency.
have no problem calling it ‘infernal’, but many people would rather die
than admit such a possibility; they should feel free to consider it an
involvement of a more advanced civilisation that has decided to curtail
human presence on our planet. Choose the theory you prefer: aliens, AI,
VR, computer simulation.
there is a scientific… proof it is not, rather support for Intelligent
Design. An old (he is 90) Russian scientist Simon Shnoll, for fifty
years recorded and analysed the white noise background signal of the
world. (Probably the USSR was the only place in the world where such
investigation could be entertained. Who else would pay for such useless
research for half a century?) In a “real” infinite world, the white
noise would be perfectly random; in a “designed” world the signal
randomness would begin to show a pattern, for no random generator could
produce an endless sequence of random signals. He published his
conclusions in this report (PDF in English, or PDF
in the original Russian). It is not easy reading, but Shnoll discovered
that the universal white noise is not truly random; there are peculiar
correlations that can’t be explained if our world is as we are being
taught. It is not conclusive, but his disciples claim it to be evidence
that we live in a computer-designed world.
virtual world sounds probably even more hopeless than an Angelic world.
However, as an eternal optimist, I believe in the human ability to cheat
any adversary, be it Satan or AI or any of the more advanced
civilisations. Last month, I travelled in Russia, and I discovered a
country where the vast majority does not give a damn about Covid
requirements. They carry their masks in their pockets to put on while
entering a house, and immediately take it off. The fine art of sabotage
is our best response while dealing with our cruel master, the Factor X.
