- Zionist ’666′ Israel do not speak for all Jews nor represent them. Many Christians do not support this Satanic counterfeit. It is time for the peaceful dismantling of this genocidal, apartheid Zionist state and all stolen land returned to the Palestinian semitic people!
- To all Zionist snakes who attack my blog: Thank you very much for telling me I am on the right track. The volume will be turned up louder because of your ‘encouragement’! I will reply 10 fold to all your propaganda, pathological lying and attacks!

When I was contemplating launching a Los Angeles chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace last fall, I consulted with some very wise and knowledgable friends first. I went forward knowing that it would be not only difficult, but potentially frightening and perhaps even dangerous. I took into account that part of my job would be keeping all around me and all who choose to become active as safe as possible.
Wednesday morning I found a slightly crumpled piece of paper stuffed in a plant on my front porch. When I unfolded it I saw my photo under the words,”Wanted For Treason And Incitement Against Jews.” My first thought was, wow– that didn’t take long. Then my heart sank when I saw the names of children in my family. I am happy to say that the detective at my local police department took the matter very seriously. I am also lucky to live in a neighborhood that the police patrol regularly and which has a great network of neighbors who all look out for each other.
I feel supported by my friends, family local activist community and by the wonderful staff and board of Jewish Voice for Peace. I feel safe. I am not afraid. But I do think this is a great reminder that we should ALL be aware, safe and steadfast in our commitment to equal safety and rights for all peoples.
While we don’t know who did it, and perhaps never will, we do know that they are cowards. And that we won’t back down.
When two members of Jewish Voice for Peace in Northern California were recently pepper-sprayed at a chapter meeting by a member of pro-settler group StandWithUs, they didn’t back down.(1) When the same JVP chapter along with Women in Black and Palestinian allies endured an hour of threats and hate speech at a silent vigil, they didn’t back down.(2) When the JVP staff repeatedly found “Viva [mass murderer] Baruch Goldstein” stickers outside of their offices, they didn’t back down.(3)
Instead, Jewish Voice for Peace is gathering as a national movement in Philadelphia to continue our growth across the nation. The kind of growth that led to a watershed profile in today’s New York Times. (4) We will do so in a changed world. This week, perhaps like you, I’ve been transfixed by images on the television of everyday people like you and me in the streets of Cairo, risking everything for democracy, for freedom, for human and civil rights, for a better life for themselves and their nation’s children.
The risks are always the same. Throughout history, every movement for freedom has faced backlash, threats, and violence. And throughout history, there have been people acting together who have faced their fear and decided the price of silence was too much to pay.
I know internationals, Israelis and most of all Palestinians who have lost an eye, a home, a child, a loved one. But, amazingly, they don’t hide. They speak out even louder. They are my heroes. And it is for them and because of them that I publicly redouble my commitment to being smart, strategic, brave and loud– most of all, loud. And to join with others so we can be even louder together.
Together, we are the majority of Jews, Americans, and citizens of the world who know that Israel’s violations of human rights must end. That Palestinians deserve the same rights that my Israeli family has– to have safe homes, to go to school, to go to work, to grow and be sustained by food from the earth. But as long as we let acts of cowardice like this WANTED poster keep us quiet and fearful, then the others’ voices will drown ours out.
That’s why I hope you’ll join me at the Jewish Voice for Peace National Member Meeting in Philadelphia March 11- 13.Let’s send a message to those who did this to me and so many others.
Let’s send a message to the people pushing occupation and injustice that threats and violence will only hasten their defeat, and that we are together and strong.

- Zionist ’666′ Israel is in total violation of God’s law!
“You shall neither mistreat a stranger nor oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
“Also you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the heart of a stranger, because you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
‘And if a stranger dwells with you in your land, you shall not mistreat him.’
The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
‘When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field when you reap, nor shall you gather any gleaning from your harvest. You shall leave them for the poor and for the stranger: I am the LORD your God.’
You shall have the same law for the stranger and for one from your own country; for I am the LORD your God.
22 It shall be that you will divide it by lot as an inheritance for yourselves, and for the strangers who dwell among you and who bear children among you. They shall be to you as native-born among the children of Israel; they shall have an inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. 23 And it shall be that in whatever tribe the stranger dwells, there you shall give him his inheritance,” says the Lord GOD.
- Zionist Israel is not the Israel of the Bible.
1980 Jewish Almanac
“Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew.”
(1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3)
The Jewish Encyclopedia:
“Khazars, a non-Semitic, Asiatic, Mongolian tribal nation who emigrated into Eastern Europe about the first century, who were converted as an entire nation to Judaism in the seventh century by the expanding Russian nation which absorbed the entire Khazar population, and who account for the presence in Eastern Europe of the great numbers of Yiddish-speaking Jews in Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Galatia, Besserabia and Rumania.”
The American Peoples Encyclopedia
… for 1954 at 15-292 records the following in reference to the Khazars: “In the year 740 A.D. the Khazars were officially converted to Judaism. A century later they were crushed by the incoming Slavic-speaking people and were scattered over central Europe where they were known as Jews.
- The Illuminist plan calls for a global economic, financial and monetary crisis. This will start in Eurozone, move to UK, then Japan and finally America. The rest of the world will not go unscathed. Asia, however, will do relatively much better than the industrialized world. The Illuminists are employing their Hegelian Dialectic methodology and Order Out of Chaos philosophy to destroy the current ‘old’ order and create the chaos necessary for the sheeple to scream for a ‘savior/solution’. Thus, presenting themselves once again with the opportunity to introduce their pre-planned solution and appear as saviors.
- A global currency crisis will come about via hyperinflation. The sheeple will wake up one day and realize that fiat currencies are nothing more than a CONfidence Job. It is backed by nothing and has no intrinsic value. Out of this crisis, the Illuminists want to introduce their Luciferian World Government, Global Supra-National Central Bank and One World Currency. Countries which do not submit to this new Financial World Order Hegemony will be demonized. War is the inevitable step next. (emphasis mine)
Central Banks Now Creating Hyperinflation?
CB president Jean-Claude Trichet’s rate retreat on commodity spike … The European Central Bank (ECB) has taken a strategic gamble that the current surge in food and commodity prices is not a repeat of the inflation virus of the 1970s and will subside without the need for a monetary squeeze. Jean-Claude Trichet said the jump in eurozone inflation to 2.4pc is a ‘short-term’ effect of rising energy and commodity costs …Yet is a risky move at a time when a powerful new cycle of global growth may be under way and the whole nexus of commodities is on fire. March contracts for Brent crude oil jumped to a two-year high of $103 a barrel on Thursday, while copper broke through $10,000 a tonne and cotton reached the highest price since the US Confederacy halted exports during the Civil War in the 1860s. The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said its index of global food prices had hit a fresh record in January, while Goldman Sachs’s farm index has risen 90pc since June. – UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: We are acting responsibly. Sure it may result in hyperinflation, but it’s not our fault.
Free-Market Analysis: The decision of both Ben Bernanke and Jean-Claude Trichet (left) to ignore rising commodity prices by keeping interest rates low in the Eurozone, may mark the final decisive failure in the latest disastrous central banking cycle. If money velocity continues to rise, one might fairly accuse top bankers of, in a sense, purposefully destabilizing the system. Such actions verge on the reckless. Trichet is likely risking severe price inflation and perhaps hyperinflation.
Central banks have pumped something like US$20 to US$50 TRILLION into the world’s economy to try to reinflate economies that collapsed in 2008. As this currency begins, finally, to circulate, price inflation must result, unless such money is quickly removed. Central bankers have continuously claimed that excess currency can be removed from the larger economy before it does its inflationary damage, but Trichet’s decision shows how difficult it is to actually withdraw currency once it is “printed.” Central banking, after all, is an art not a science.
Each powerful central banker – Trichet or America’s Ben Bernanke – is empowered to make their own decisions as to when the time comes to act and to remove currency from the system by various purchasing strategies. But the trouble with such strategies, as we’ve pointed out many times in the past, is that there is no mathematical equation that actually makes it clear when to act. This is compounded by the issue of how much money is too much.
There is no scientific way of figuring out how much money an economy needs. There is no scientific way to figure out when to drain money from the system. In fact, by the time price inflation becomes a visible problem it is probably too late. This is why it is so important to use free-market money, as Austrian, free-market economists argue.
In, say, a free-banking arrangement, when too much gold and silver are circulating – lowering the price of money – then hoarding and mine shut-downs take money out of circulation. Once prices rise, people begin to dis-hoard and money circulates once again. Central banking short-circuits market signals. It removes money from free-market influences and set prices by price-fixing and guesswork. The eventual results are always disastrous.
Despite evidence price-inflation is picking up, the world’s two most powerful central bankers – Trichet and Bernanke – appear to be in denial. According to the Financial Times, Ben Bernanke has issued a strong statement denying that the Federal Reserve’s hyper-easy monetary policy has had anything to do with rising food prices around the world. FT quotes him as saying (enigmatically in our opinion), “I think it’s entirely unfair to attribute excess demand pressures in emerging markets to US monetary policy, because emerging markets have all the tools they need to address excess demand in those countries.”
According to FT, Bernanke said recently that rising food prices in the emerging world reflected the growing wealth of their populations and, in some countries, a failure to tackle inflation. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Bernanke “won’t pull back the central bank’s easy money policies any time soon, even as the government is expected to report positive job growth Friday. ‘Until we see a sustained period of stronger job creation, we cannot consider the recovery to be truly established,’ he said. Though the economic recovery ‘appears to have strengthened in recent months,’ that growth isn’t happening fast enough.”
Bernanke’s stubborn and arrogant attitude in the face of rising prices worldwide for food and commodities, is buttressed by his European counterpart’s. According to the UK Telegraph, Trichet [has] carried out a “deft pirouette … Markets had priced in two rates this year after his comments in January, so he is now trying to put those expectations back in the box … “
What is Trichet most worried about? Apparently, broad deposit outflows from the Irish banking system as a result of the Irish banking crisis. There is a semi-perpetual run on Irish banking institutions that indicates a profound uneasiness with EU decisions; raising rates (reducing liquidity) would only add to Irish woes. “The ECB decision to ‘look through’ the commodity spike brings the bank closer into line with the Bank of England and the US Federal Reserve, which has kept its focus on core inflation measures that strip out food and energy,” the Telegraph reports.
Yet at the same time that the world’s two most powerful central bankers are making a decision to ignore price inflation in favor of economic growth and job creation, World Bank president Robert Zoellick once more has urged “action on rising food prices,” according to Reuters. “The world faces a broader trend of increasing food and commodity prices and more countries should wake up to the need to curb price volatility.”
In a phone interview from Berlin, Zoellick called on G20 global leaders to “put food first” to tackle the surge in prices and increased volatility threatening the poor and driving up inflation in developing countries, mainly in Asia, according to Reuters. “We are going to be facing a broader trend of increasing commodity prices, including food commodity prices. This can put pressure but also create opportunities.”
The Middle East and Africa are being ripped by food riots. But we can see that Western central banking heads are denying that there is a problem. These denials are necessary because Western countries are still too fragile economically to raise interest rates and otherwise reduce liquidity. If tightening were to be accomplished, the chances are that employment would be reduced, along with any nascent recovery.
Western central bankers are obviously worried that if Western economies fall back into severe recession, that civil unrest similar to that of the Middle East’s will be the result. Despite overwhelming evidence that currency is now beginning to circulate and that the velocity of money is starting to approach dangerous levels, these central bankers will issue what are essentially political statements in order to avoid removing money from overheating economies. Ordinarily this would be bad news, but given the amount of extra money in the system, central bankers are playing a most dangerous and hyperinflationary game.
Price inflation is a funny thing. Once it begins, it reinforces itself. Money velocity moves faster and faster as people buy today to avoid depreciating currency tomorrow. Price inflation has a real reason for occurring – an expansive and circulating monetary base – and also psychological reasons for worsening fairly quickly unless central bankers take action. Of course, history shows it is fairly impossible for central bankers to “get it right.”
Conclusion: There are all sorts of reasons not to act on price-inflation until well after disaster has begun to strike. Hyperinflation, when prices climb dramatically on almost daily basis, is an utter disaster in any fiat money economy. It ruins savers and makes investing and industrial expansion almost impossible. In this case, the money-printing damage has been so egregious and the danger is so evident that it almost begins to seem as if the West’s top bankers are intending to destabilize their respective economies. The question then becomes, “why?”
- James Turk once again explains in simple terms the real reason for the rising commodity prices ie. inflation: Quantitative Easing! The criminal Illuminist Federal Reserve and their fellow Illuminist central banks are guilty of this. The financial MSM media tries very hard to deflect their guilt by pointing to recent inclement weather and poor/destroyed harvests. Inclement weather plays a very much smaller role in commodity price increases: under 10% of the rise IMO.
The Real Reason for Rising Commodity Prices
An article today in The Wall Street Journal highlights the latest rise in the price of wheat. Blaming bad weather, it notes that the “global wheat market is caught between freezing winds and a sirocco.” The WSJ therefore warns that “investors should beware of whiplash as weather normalizes.” Given that wheat is “up 13% since the start of December”, it is good advice – if weather were to blame.
The reality is that wheat is being driven higher by more than bad weather. The price of wheat has been climbing since June, a fact conveniently ignored in the WSJ article, perhaps because it doesn’t square with its premise that bad weather is causing higher wheat prices. Are we to believe that the market knew seven months ago that weather around the world today would be so bad that it would impact global wheat output? Or has wheat – which has risen $3.50 per bushel, or 70%, since its June low – been climbing steadily higher over these several months for another reason? And more to the point, why are all commodity prices rising? For example, since June copper has risen $1.70 per pound, or 59%. Is bad weather to blame?
No, of course it isn’t. Something else is at work here. Maybe wheat has risen more than copper over this period because bad weather really has had some impact on wheat production. But obviously, given that commodity prices are rising across the board, we have to look for other factors that are causing this surge in prices. And we do not need to look too hard. Just consider the money printing – a/k/a “quantitative easing” – by central banks going on all around the world. QE is building up tremendous inflationary pressures in the pipeline of goods and services, which for months now has been showing up in the area most sensitive to monetary debasement, namely, commodity prices.
The WSJ article ends by warning that “political storms could provide a tailwind for wheat prices.” That could be, but right now, the gathering monetary storm is far more important, and there is one easy way to seek shelter – buy physical gold. Look at the correlation between gold and the CRB Continuing Commodity Index in the following chart (top of post).
The above chart makes one point crystal clear. Rising commodity prices are not short-term phenomena. Except for a brief deflationary blip in 2008 after the collapse of Lehman Brothers, this CRB Index of 17 essential commodities has been rising steadily all decade – and it is meaningful to note, so too has gold.
So I wouldn’t worry about any shortage of wheat, provided you own physical gold. Farmers will continue to grow produce, and the market in which money is exchanged for food will continue to function as it has since humankind began to interact in commerce thousands of years ago. So regardless what happens to the price of wheat, you will continue to buy bread in the future just like you do today, provided you have physical gold to preserve your purchasing power from the ongoing debasement of national currencies being engineered by governments and central banks.
