Sensational interview with rabbi Abe Finkelstein about Jewish control of the world
"The Zionist lobby has a hobby Leading Congress by the nose, So anywhere the lobby points There surely Congress goes."

The Israel Lobby and Public Awareness. Sama Adnan
"...Members of Congress are almost entirely beholden to a powerful pro-Israel lobby whose fabled success stems primarily from its ability to fund congressional campaigns. When the time for a vote comes, whether it is a symbolic nonbinding resolution such as H. Res. 1765 or a crucial bill funding Israel's occupation, the vast majority of members of Congress will invariably vote on the side of Israel. The reason is quite simple: a member of Congress cannot listen to pro-peace organizations as hard-line pro-Israel PACs (political action committees) fund their campaigns, no matter how sympathetic the member is to the Palestinian cause."

On Capitol Hill, 'The (Israeli) Lobby' seems to be in charge
Nobody can understand what's going on politically in the United States without being aware that a political coalition of major pro-Likud groups, pro-Israel neoconservative intellectuals and Christian Zionists is exerting a tremendously powerful influence on the American government and its policies.
Over time, this large pro-Israel Lobby, spearheaded by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), has extended its comprehensive grasp over large segments of the U.S. government, including the Vice President's office, the Pentagon and the State Department, besides controlling the legislative apparatus of Congress.
It is being assisted in this task by powerful allies in the two main political parties, in major corporate media and by some richly financed so-called "think-tanks", such as the American Enterprise Institute, the Heritage Foundation, or the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
AIPAC is the centerpiece of this co-ordinated system. For example, it keeps voting statistics on each House representative and senator, which are then transmitted to political donors to act accordingly. AIPAC also organizes regular all-expense-paid trips to Israel and meetings with Israeli ministers and personalities for congressmen and their staffs, and for other state and local American politicians.
Not receiving this imprimatur is a major handicap for any ambitious American politician, even if he can rely on a personal fortune. In Washington, in order to have a better access to decision makers, the Lobby even has developed the habit of recruiting personnel for Senators and House members' offices. And, when elections come, the Lobby makes sure that lukewarm, independent-minded or dissenting politicians are punished and defeated.

#2 Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights.
Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need."
The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.
#12 Obsession with Crime and Punishment.
Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism.
There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.
HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT: IF THE JEWS GOD IS THE SAME ONE AS THE CHRISTIAN'S GOD, THEN WHY DO THEY OBJECT TO PRAYER TO GOD IN THE SCHOOLS? THE ANSWER IS GIVEN IN A 1960 COURT CASE BY A JEWESS Lois N. Milman, IF CHRISTIANS WOULD ONLY LISTEN AND OBSERVE!
1960 Jewish pupil objects to prayer in schools. Jewess Lois N. Milman, objected to discussing God in the Miami schools because the talk was about "A GOD THAT IS NOT MY GOD." (How true this is] In a court suit she also objected to "having to listen to Christmas carols in the schools."

Basically, everything is in place for the President to just come up on the stage and issue an executive order and declare the Martial Law as has been reported in the media.

"This act defines a person as being anti-semitic if they purport any of the following beliefs:"

Boston: A Harvard Divinity School professor, John Strugnell, was removed this week as chief editor of the Dead Sea Scrolls not only because of his poor health, but because of a tirade against Israel and Judaism, his colleagues said.
The remarks, in which he called Judaism "a horrible religion" that "should have disappeared," came as a surprise to some colleagues working with him to decipher the ancient texts of the Old Testament.
Strugnell made the remarks in a recent interview published in Haaretz, a Tel Aviv news-paper. In the Haaretz interview, Strugnell, 60, said he was not against Jews but their religion, according to an account soon to be published in the Biblical Archaeology Review.
"I can't allow the word anti-Semitism to be used," he is quoted as saying, "Anti-Judaist, that's what I am."
1954 ADL attorney Leonard Schroeter, is instrumental in preparing desegregation briefs for the NAACP for hearings before the U.S. Supreme court. He said "The ADL was working throughout the South to make integration possible as quickly as possible."

1977 JEWS URGE REMOVAL OF BIBLE TOTING JUDGE.
The Anti Defamation League sent a letter to the state Committee on Judicial Performance [California] to have Judge Hugh W. Godwin removed from the bench because "his Christian religious beliefs color the manner in which he dispenses justice."
(L.A. Herald Examiner, June 24, 1977).
"Arrangements have been completed with the National Council of Churches whereby the American Jewish Congress and the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) will jointly... aid in the preparation of lesson materials, study guides and visual aids... sponsored by Protestant organizations."
(American Jewish Yearbook, 1952)
1977 The Anti Defamation League has succeeded in getting 11 major U.S. firms to cancel their adds in the "Christian Yellow Pages." To advertise in the CYP, people have to declare they believe in Jesus Christ. The Jews claim they are offended by the idea of having to say they believe in Jesus Christ and yet want to force their way into the Christian Directories.
There is no doubt this is true! And the fantasy exists in Christian and Secularist minds only because it was implanted there by the persistent propaganda of the masters of intrigue of the ADL-AJC Network.
Nevertheless, there can be no doubt that knowledgeable theologians, Jewish and Christians who constantly allude to "our Judeo-Christian heritage" are for their own specious purposes perpetuate a grotesque and fantastic hoax.
1977 Lutheran Church leaders are calling for the deletion of the hymn "Reproaches" from Lutheran hymnals because the "hymn has a danger of fermenting antiSemitism."

In San Francisco, Rabbi Michael Lerner has endured death threats and vicious harassment from right-wing Jews because he gives voice to Palestinian views on his website and in the magazine Tikkun.
"An Israeli web site called 'self-hate' has identified me as one of the five enemies of the Jewish people, and printed my home address and driving instructions on how to get to my home," wrote Lerner in a May 13 e-mail.
"We reported this to the police, the Israeli consulate, and to the Anti Defamation league. The ADL said it wasn't their concern because this was not a 'hate crime."
Here's a typical letter that Lerner said Tikkun received: "You subhuman leftist animals. You should all be exterminated. You are the lowest of the low life" (David Raziel in Hebron).
If anyone other than a Jew had written this, you can be sure that the ADL and any other Jewish lobby groups would have gone into full attack mode.
In other words, when non-Jews slander and threaten Jews, it's called "anti-Semitism" and "hate crime'; when Zionists slander and threaten Jews, nobody is supposed to notice.
-- Greg Felton, Israel: A monument to anti-Semitism
BTW: The ADL will not be able to defend you from IaHUeH on that soon coming day!... And if you would start reading the TORAH more instead of your Tragically Twisted Talmudic Traditions.. you would quickly redifine "anti-semite" not to mention your whole way of thinking and relating with your Neighbors!!
The Anti-Defamation League is the longest running and most powerful hate group in the United States with 28 offices domestically and 3 offices abroad. They bring in nearly $60 million a year to combat free speech and the right of ethnic minorities to defend themselves from bigotry (including Black Muslims, Arabs, and Euro-Americans). [Sabe Note - Add the hit hate lists they prepared for FBi Louis Freeh who was in bed with KGB in own department and in Russia]
The Anti-Defamation League was created in 1913 by the racist secret society known as B'nai B'rith (which means "blood of the Chosen").
This organization, which exists today excludes people based on their ethnic background and religion. It is exclusively restricted to powerful Jews who believe in racial superiority.
The ADL has spearheaded efforts at censorship against all people who wish to express themselves culturally and racially. The Director of the ADL Richard Gutstadt wrote to all periodicals he could find to censor the book, "The Conquest of A Continent." Mr Gutstadt brazenly writes, "We are interested in stifling the sale of this book." The ADL was also instrumental in terrorizing St. Martin's Press into canceling their contract last year with David Irving.
The ADL trys to cover its anti-free speech activities by giving out a Free Speech "Torch of Liberty" award occasionally. The most prominent recipient is flesh peddler and woman denigrator Hugh Hefner. Obscene pornographer Larry Flynt is another supporter who has contributed 100,000s of dollars to the ADL.
In 1993 the San Francisco and Los Angeles offices of the ADL were raided for evidence of criminal wrongdoing in many spheres. The raids turned up evidence of the ADL's compliance in the theft of confidential police files stolen from California police departments.
The ADL had been paying Roy Bullock a salary for decades to spy on people and steal police files. He stole files from SFPD through corrupt cop Tom Gerard. His illicit contact in San Diego was white racist sheriff Tim Carroll.
The ADL has been linked closely to organized crime, especially Las Vegas mafia boss Meyer Lansky. [Lansky paid for bullet that hit JFK and RFK........he and Carlos Marcellos......the Larry Flynt connection to ADL is "very interesting but you see he owed the mob money.....".
Theodore Silbert worked simultaneously for the ADL and the Sterling National Bank (a mafia operation controlled by the Lansky syndicate).
As a matter of fact the granddaughter of the mafia boss, Lansky, herself is the ADL's liason to law enforcement, Mira Lansky Boland. (What a convient arrangement! She used ADL money to treat Tim Carroll and Tom Gerard to an all-expense paid luxury vacation in Israel.)
Another Las Vegas gangster, Moe Dalitz was honored by the ADL in 1985. Another among the shady contributors to the ADL's supremacist activities is the Milken Family Fund, of "junk bond" fame. The ADL uses its well-oiled propaganda machine to protect their "friends" in the mafia and pornography industry by shrieking "Anti-Semitism!!!!!" at the slightest movement of the law against these perverse interests.
The ADL has mastered the art of intimidation and blackmailing unlike any of the powerful mafias they are associated with. The ADL has influential contacts in media and politics that can ruin a person or business if they don't follow ADL's agenda.
Already mentioned are instances of bad cops falling under the allure of the ADL, ones such as Tom Gerard and Tim Carroll. Yet now good cops and even freshmen cops are being "conditioned" for the type of anti-free speech, anti-cultural diversity, police state that the ADL would like for our country.
Throughout the nation the ADL is threatening police departments with all kinds of retribution if they don't initiate state-funded lectures and seminars for law enforcement given by ADL spokesmen. The ADL rakes in large sums of money for these sessions, boosting their already overflowing coffers. Already ADL men have been seen at the scene of crimes ordering cops on how investigations are to be conducted.
Perhaps at no time in history has any other criminal organization, such as the ADL, been able to infiltrate and influence law enforcement to such an extent, and its tenacles are growing. Freshmen sheriffs in San Diego are now being personally "trained" to respond to "crimes" by the Southwestern Director of the ADL, Morris Casuto.
The most alarming part of this horrible story is... The ADL is a very powerful, secretive racial/religious supremacist organization, with substantial ties to the underworld of crime and pornography. To burrow their way into the minds of children the ADL has created the "World of Difference" program designed to cause self-hatred in young children and to persuede them to go against their own people and heritage.
Children are taught that homosexuality and interracial affairs are virtues, great epiphanies to be experienced. In a report to its few, but wealthy supporters in 1995, ADL boasts that it has reached more than ten million students and more are ready to be indoctrinated. The ADL hopes to make children susceptible to the world of crime and vice they and their criminal associates have in store for America.

The ADL's paid informant who rummaged through trash for decades for the ADL, until he was given the sensitive position of being the conduit for stolen police files coming from the San Francisco Police Department by way of Tom Gerard. He was paid $550 per week for his services. Also an associate of racist sheriff Tim Carroll. His existance was discovered after the FBI raids on ADL offices in 1993 and resulted in the publicizing of 750 pages of information on the spying operations of the ADL.
San Francisco Police Officer who stole sensitive, confidential files from his agency and gave them to Roy Bullock to assist ADL's spying operations on Americans. Among files stolen were ones on the Black Muslims, Arabs and right-wing organizations that were in any way critical of ADL. Received an all-expense paid luxury vacation in Israel, courtesy of the ADL.
Racist ex-detective in San Diego's Sheriff Department. Remarked in 1993 that he would like to see "all illegal aliens shot" and "all the n**gers sent back to Africa on a banana boat."
An associate of both Roy Bullock and Tom Gerard. He mysteriously retired from the Sheriff's Department after the raids on the ADL offices at the early age of 54. Also received an all-expense paid luxury vacation in Israel, courtesy of the ADL. Despite his overtly racist nature, he was put in charge of security at the ADL's National Convention in September, 1997 using strong-arm tactics against participants and visitors. This is interesting considering it was his bumbling confessions to an investigator that led to the raids on the ADL.
Mira Lansky Boland
The "law-enforcement liasion" for the ADL. She arranged luxurious trips to Israel for certain key police officers who could have something to offer the ADL in return. Among these were file thief Tom Gerard and racist Tim Carroll. She is uniquely positioned in that she is the granddaughter of Meyer Lansky, one of the most powerful mafia figures in US history.
Famous pornographer who was honored by the ADL with its ridiculous "Torch of Freedom" award. From him proceeds protection for all pornography in this country, which is and has always been associated with vice elements like the mob and ADL.
Larry Flynt This pornographer is a major contributor to the ADL of 100,000s of dollars. He has been jailed often for "obscene pornography" and the general hideous defiling of women in his Hustler magazine (whose description is beyond the limits allowed on an AOL web page).

The Anti-Defamation League's new, tougher hate bill, "The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2005", HR 2662, if passed, will very soon end FREE SPEECH and FREE SPEECH TALK RADIO. The ADL, through similar legislation, has already ended free speech in Canada. It wants to do the same in America.
Here's a summary of how this bill would make law.
HR 2662 intends to enforce nation-wide the working ADL/federal definition that 'hate' equals bias against federally-protected groups. Particularly against:
Any specific public criticism of homosexuals will
eventually be considered a hate crime, just as it already has
been for eleven Christians under the ADL's Pennsylvania hate
crime law on Oct.
Female impersonators, and persons with confused or altered gender, will gain special federal protection against bias-motivated threat. This includes transvestites who are threatened for sexist reasons by males who perceive them as really being women. Such men will be prosecuted as 'hate criminals' against women, even though the 'woman' they were biased against was actually a man!
Any woman who claims, "The last time I had sex with him, he used a sexist word against me. He raped me!" can press charges for a 'hate crime' of rape. Punishment will be triple the usual penalty - about 30 years in prison.
B'nai B'rith, a Jewish religious organization, invented 'hate laws' to make public criticism of homosexuality a 'hate crime.' Yet this is only a step toward B'nai B'rith's REAL objective: making public criticism of Jews, matters Jewish, and the State of Israel, a hate crime.
HR 2662 intends to give the same special federal protection to Jews as to homosexuals, providing a green light for corrupt Jewish leaders to intensify their domination of the media, Congress, and the Mideast. Hate laws will eventually empower Jewish leadership to imprison those who criticize them, be they Jews or Gentiles.
HR 2662 will invite pedophiles, witches, warlocks, Satanists and even 'sinners' to acquire special federal protection from anyone who criticizes them, including pastors. Witches and warlocks in England are, today, lobbying hard for inclusion under Britain, s ADL hate law.
If passed, HR 2662 will provide immediate special FBI, Justice Department and local police assistance to protected groups that claim to have been offended. On the slightest evidence of bias, the police will descend [as the world saw happen last October in Philadelphia] upon Christians, pastors, talk show hosts and radio station managers, indicting them with trumped-up 'hate crime.' charges and exorbitant penalties.
A huge barrier to establishment of a federal hate bureaucracy has been the sovereign right of states to enforce the law as they see fit. Heretofore, the federal government has had to prove that such abuses as jury tampering, voter fraud, and slavery existed in states before it could meddle in state law enforcement. HR 2662 would legitimize as law several devious strategies to break down all barriers to federal intrusion.
HR 2662 asserts that if a violent bias crime within a state in any way affects interstate commerce, the federal government has the right to invade state law enforcement. This means that, if a homosexual has been called a 'faggot' and been threatened to have his butt kicked by a gas station attendant, and as a result does not patronize that gas station, whose products have come from across the state line, the federal government can intervene. Or if the homosexual buys a Greyhound ticket (vehicle of interstate commerce) to re-settle in San Francisco as a result of such threatened 'violence,' the federal government has a green light to take over state hate crime law enforcement in that state. Sec. 7(2)(B), Sec. 2(5-8).
HR 2662 asserts that bias-motivated violence in states is a 'relic' of slavery. This bill contends that the presence of bias-motivated violent crime within a state is proof that slavery still exists in that state. This provides the same justification for intervention that the federal government had in putting down slavery during the Civil War! Sec. 2(10,11).
Under HR 2662, the government can take over local law enforcement if
1. states do not have hate laws; Sec. B (b)(2A)
2. states are not enforcing state and federal hate laws as zealously as the federal government wishes; Sec. B (b)(2A)
3. states do not produce the kind of verdicts in hate crimes trials that the federal government wants. Sec. B (b)(2D)
HR 2662 is in flat violation of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which prohibits government from favoring any particular group.
HR 2662 will give ADL complete control of the federal anti-hate
agenda. Very quickly, via enabling legislation and judicial
precedent, any pretext of respect for the rights of Christians
or dissenters will dissolve. This has already happened under the
ADL anti-hate law in Canada, England, Ireland, Sweden, France,
Italy, Australia, New Zealand, and under Pennsylvania's ADL hate
law in Philadelphia on Oct.
All criticism of protected groups via politically incorrect terms, such as 'homosexual' or 'sodomite,' will become hate crime, just as it is under the British ADL hate law.
A huge number of legal precedents will continuously widen hate law jurisdiction.
Courts will quickly become clogged with federal indictments.
Staggering backlogs of unresolved cases, will make the federal hate law, like Roe vs. Wade, virtually impossible to repeal.
FCC restrictions will soon descend on talk show hosts with lists of unapproved topics. Talk show hosts will be fined or imprisoned and stations will lose their broadcast licenses, just as in Canada today, if they violate those restrictions.
Talk show hosts - Do you get the picture? If HR 2662 passes, your occupation as a free speech talk show host will go the way of Diplodocus.
You have two main options. First, wait and see what happens, fearful of offending a huge religious organization, B'nai B'rith, and their sycophantic yea-sayers, the Israel-first evangelicals. If you opt for this, you might as well start taking night classes to prepare for another line of work.
Or, you can invite me on your show for a very spirited and persuasive program, thoroughly convincing your audience to help save your occupation by protesting now to Congress.
In Canada on Aug. 28th, 'CHOI FM,' Quebec City's most popular talk show station was dissolved by the Canadian government. Its 33 employees were put out of work. Its offence? One of the talk show hosts criticized African dictators who had their children educated in Canadian universities. This was considered a 'hate crime' against blacks.
If HR 2662 is passed, exactly the same will soon happen to you and your station if you stray to the slightest degree from the new 'politically correct' FCC guidelines.
May I hear from you soon? My number is (503) 631-3808.
The ADL is lobbying hard for passage of HR 2662 - legislation that will not only end free speech, but free speech talk radio. ADL still has tremendous power in Congress. All it might take is one outrageous hate crime, such as a homosexual being dragged to death behind a pickup, to ignite ADL-assisted national outrage, stampeding Congress into quickly passing HR 2662.
We must lay a foundation of education that will help resist storms of 'anti-hate' hysteria in the years ahead. The best way to do that is to read the articles against hate laws at www. truthtellers. org and purchase online Rev. Ted Pike's gripping video documentary, 'Hate Laws: Making Criminals of Christians' for $24.90.
Show this video everywhere you can, especially in your church.
This video is free to talk show hosts who request it.

Frist urged to halt "special protections" for homosexuals Sep 21, 2005 By Tom Strode Baptist Press WASHINGTON (BP)--Southern Baptist public policy chief Richard Land and other pro-family leaders are calling on Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist to block passage of legislation that would expand rights for homosexuals.
Focus on the Family founder James Dobson and American Family Association founder Donald Wildmon joined Land, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, and 40 national and state leaders in a Sept. 20 letter telling Frist they " are looking to [him] to assure" that a measure expanding hate crimes prevention to cover homosexuals and " transgendered" individuals fails to become law.
The focus is on Frist, a Republican from Tennessee, and the Senate because the House of Representatives approved the legislation in a somewhat surprising action Sept. 14. The House passed the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, H. R. 2662, in a 223-199 vote. Thirty Republicans joined 192 Democrats and an independent to pass the measure.
The House approved the hate crimes legislation as an amendment to the Children"s Safety Act, H. R. 3132, which would stiffen penalties for and supervision of sex offenders. Passage of the sex offender bill came in a 371-52 vote, with only 29 Republicans and 23 Democrats opposing it, even though it included the hate crimes measure.
While Land and his fellow signers said they strongly support the Children"s Safety Act, they "will adamantly oppose" the inclusion of the hate crimes language. That measure "was created as, and continues to be, an attempt by some to advance the cause of homosexuality."
The hate crimes language would extend protection to include "gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability." The hate crimes law currently covers the classifications of race, color, religion and national origin.
"Sexual orientation" includes homosexuality." Gender identity" is a "person"s innate sense of gender," which may be different than his sex, according to the website of the Human Rights Campaign, which describes itself as the country"s largest "lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender" political organization. Transgender is an umbrella term for "people who live all or substantial portions of their lives expressing an innate sense of gender other than their birth sex," according to HRC. The transgender category includes transsexuals and cross-dressers.
The hate crimes measure would violate the "principles of liberty and quality," grant special protections "to a particular group of people based on their lifestyle" and "could ultimately lead to the silencing of the church," the pro-family leaders told Frist in the letter from the ERLC.
So far, the government has granted civil rights protections "based on certain immutable characteristics shared by humanity generally," they said. While some may contend homosexuality should receive "special protections" in the way religious belief does, a "sharp distinction may be drawn" between the two, Land and the others said.
"Religious belief is inherent to all mankind," they said in the letter. "Despite the vast differences in belief systems, from belief in God to disbelief, every human attempts to define themselves and the world around them, adopting a religious view, ranging from Christianity to atheism. In contrast, only a small percentage of the population identifies themselves as homosexual. Homosexuality is not part of the universal human condition and should not be afforded the same protections as immutable qualities common to all mankind."
When the government establishes "more and more special rights," it places limitations not only "upon actions, but speech and thought as well," the pro-family leaders told Frist. "This trend will prepare the way for the outright ban of criticism of a lifestyle believed by millions of people of religious conviction to be contrary to the laws of God and nature. Thus, granting special rights and protections to homosexuals is inevitably a step toward removing rights from those who oppose homosexuality."
Land and the others pointed to Canada and Sweden as examples of countries where speaking against homosexuality is already a crime.
In addition to Land, Dobson and Wildmon, other signers included Gary Bauer, president of American Values; Paul Weyrich, national chairman of Coalitions for America; Mathew Staver, president of Liberty Counsel; Frank Wright, president of the National Religious Broadcasters; Gary Cass, executive director of Center for Reclaiming America; Rick Scarborough, president of Vision America; Rod Parsley, Ohio pastor and president of the Center for Moral Clarity; Janet Folger, president of Faith2Action; and Ken Hutcherson, Washington pastor and organizer of Mayday for Marriage.
The Human Rights Campaign praised the House"s passage of the hate crimes legislation. HRC President Joe Solmonese said in a written statement the House provided a "powerful law enforcement tool." HRC said it "strongly prefers" the House-approved language in contrast to the Senate version, because it "is more explicit in its coverage of the transgender community."
There appears to be a majority in the Senate prepared to approve an expansion of the hate crimes law to include "sexual orientation." The Senate version has 44 cosponsors. Last year, the Senate passed a similar expansion of hate crimes legislation as an amendment to a bill, but the House did not include the measure in its version of the bill. House appointees to the conference committee succeeded in removing the hate crimes measure from the final bill.
The House-approved measure authorizes the United States attorney general to provide assistance to state and local officials in the investigation and prosecution of hate crimes.
