    Anti-Zionism is indeed NOT antisemitism.

    The Satmar Community, the largest Hasidic sect, has always been profoundly against Zionism.

    Our organization,Torah Jews, was founded more than 20 years ago to fight the misinformation spread by Zionists on Judaism & the Jewish people.

    Biden is threatening the US Congress that he will send US troops to fight the Russians unless Congress votes to give Ukraine $61 Billion.

    Why is Biden so anxious to keep funnelling dollars into a lost cause in Ukraine?

    Here’s my guess.

    As Obama’s Vice President, Biden made 16 or 17 trips to Ukraine. That unfortunate country has (or had) the reputation that, like Thailand, it was a favourite destination for paedophile sex trips.

    I can’t imagine that the Ukraine intelligence services would not be in the possession of incriminating evidence that Biden’s visits were not simply to admire the architecture in Kiev.

    Kiev’s message to Biden: Pay up Joe or a lot of embarrassing photos and videos will be all over the internet.

    I’ve never been convinced by the argument that Nazism and Zionism are two sides of the same coin.

    However there was actually a Nazi medallion with a Swastika on one side and a Star of David on the other.

    Nazi Medallion with a Swastika and a Star of David–” A Nazi Travels to Palestine”, 1934

    A medal struck in honor of the series of articles” A Nazi Travels to Palestine” which was published in the Nazi journal “Der Angriff” (The Attack). A memento of the cooperation that took place between the Nazi Party and the German Zionist Federation, in their mutual goal of relocating German Jews to Palestine. Germany, 1934.

    The recto of the medallion depicts a Star of David in the center, surrounded by the inscription in German “A Nazi Travels to Palestine” (Ein Nazi fährt nach Palästina). The verso depicts a swastika in the center and the words “And he writes about it in The Attack” (Und erzählt davon in Angriff)…–-nazi-travels-palestine-1934

    Repeating a caution I have mentioned recently, related to the Gaza war and online propaganda.

    Be aware of the possibility of set-ups and inaccurate images and videos that are being circulated in the media – MSM as well as social media. It is carried out by both sides and called Pallywood. Unless there is verification, we have no way of knowing whether the photo/video is real, taken from elsewhere, edited or staged to gain sympathy for one side or the other.

    It is gruesome and painful to watch the images of wounded and the dead, grieving relatives and the destruction of homes and the area. Both sides are doing it. Also using whatever means to push their cause and justify the actions from their side.

    I recently posted a video of an American Jew. Her message was for other Jews to explain the difference between Judaism and Zionism. It appeared to me that she was genuinely concerned and presenting her views as a religious Jew. Yet, someone from the other side found it suitable to their cause. So they take the video and at the end of it they shoved on their “Free Palestine” stamp.

    This does not help the cause. People who may be willing to listen will be put off by such messages being rammed down their throats.

    On the other side, someone from the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs finds a clip of a Gazan woman accusing Hamas (via a reporter) of taking all the humanitarian aid to its terrorists. This may be true. However, it suits the Israeli agenda to say: “Hamas bad”.

    But why are these innocent civilians in this situation anyway?
    Nothing to do with Israel government decisions and a war?

    Now, the two main players would like it to appear that the war is Muslims vs Jews. They pretend that Christians have not been involved. But both sides are happy to use the Son of God to suit their purpose.

    When it comes to memes, I’ve seen this one on twitter posted by one side.

    So Jesus is a Jewish man who was born in Bethlehem. The meme suits the agenda. The Judeo-Christian connection sounds right to push now, just before Christmas.

    But, what about the Christians in the area who have wanted to visit Bethlehem for Christmas? To celebrate the birthday of that Jewish man?

    What about the treatment of Christians in Israel-Gaza for decades – the same followers of that Jewish man?

    The other side uses the same Jesus to push forward their agenda.

    Yet, around the world, they go about killing Christians and destroying churches.

    We can lose our sense of reality and facts if we let ourselves get carried over by any one side based on emotional arguments and manipulative imagery.

    How do Christians in the Holy Land understand the Israeli occupation of Palestine?

    “It is only by ending decades of occupation and its tragic consequences, as well as giving a clear and secure national perspective to the Palestinian people that a serious peace process can begin,” assessed the Latin Patriarch. “Unless this problem is solved at its root, there will never be the stability we all hope for.”

    Exposing COVID-19 Crimes

    Explore the intricate timeline spanning nearly six decades, revealing the covert development of COVID-19 as a bioweapon, with each step meticulously laid out for global domination.

    • In an October 2023 lecture, David E. Martin, Ph.D., detailed how we can know that SARS-CoV-2 is a manmade bioweapon that has been in the works for 58 years

    • The virus called “coronavirus” was first described in 1965. Two years later, the U.S. and U.K. launched an exchange program where healthy British military personnel were infected with coronavirus pathogens from the U.S. as part of the U.S. biological weapons program

    • In 1992, Ralph Baric at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, took a pathogen that used to infect the gut and lungs and altered it with a chimera to make it infect the heart, causing cardiomyopathy. This research was part of the efforts to produce an HIV vaccine

    • In November 2000, Pfizer patented its first spike protein vaccine. Between 2000 and 2019, vaccine trials using this technology proved it was lethal, yet in the summer of 2020, the clinical trials for the SARS-CoV-2 shots went straight into human trials

    • mRNA spike protein was publicly described as a bioweapon 18 years ago. In 2005, at a conference hosted by DARPA and The Mitre Corporation, the mRNA spike protein was hailed as a “biological warfare-enabling technology,” i.e., a biological warfare agent

    How Will This War End? How Can the Next One be Prevented?

    Rather than seeking blueprints for a permanent peace deal, which seems far-fetched given the current Israeli and Palestinian political leadership, Foreign Policy asked a range of experts two narrower questions:

    1. What will Gaza look like one year from now?

    2. What single policy could any actor in this conflict pursue that would make it less likely that this war will end like so many others, with the same security threats remaining and key political grievances unresolved?

    There were a lot of interesting snippets but the most interesting segment for me concerned the twin-towers destruction in 2001.

    I didn’t previously know that Alex Jones had publicly forewarned his listeners of the event, he was telling his listeners before September 2001 that “they” are going to crash planes into the twin towers and blame it on a bloke called Osama Bin Laden.

    Well before the event occurred, he was telling his listeners to ring the White House and tell them that the public was aware of their plans and they should cancel this attack.

    Gregorian Chant for Advent
    Rorate Cæli

    (If the CC (Subtitles/Captions) is ON by default in the video, it needs to be turned off.)

    This is the classic Gregorian chant for the Season of Advent. The Rorate Caeli Mass is a traditional Advent devotion wherein the Mass of the Blessed Virgin Mary for Advent is offered just before dawn.

    The Mass receives its name from the first words of the opening chant in Latin, “Rorate caeli desuper, et nubes pluant iustum” (“Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain down the Just One,”
    Isaiah 45:8).

    Historically this Mass was celebrated in the dark, only illuminated by candlelight and typically just before dawn. If timed correctly, by the end of Mass the entire church is filled with light by the sun. This speaks of the general theme of Advent, a time of expectation eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Son of God, the Light of the World.

    Hopes of a global agreement on phasing out fossil fuels shattered

    Hopes of climate vulnerable nations that the world was on the cusp of an agreement to rapidly phase out the use of fossil fuels at the COP28 climate summit in Dubai were shattered when a new draft text emerged from negotiations drastically watering down such language. Earlier there had been hope that after decades of lobbying the final agreement would include language that did not just call for emissions reductions, but specifically addressed the burning of fossil fuels. But after a pushback by oil interests and some nations including Saudi Arabia, calls to end fossil fuels had been almost entirely washed out a new draft agreement, devastating many delegations and observers.

    War cabinet minister Benny Gantz told US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday that the uptick in attacks by Hezbollah will require a firm Israeli response, as rocket fire by the Lebanese terror group continued to target towns on Israel’s northern border.

    “Gantz stated that heightened aggression and increased attacks by Iranian-backed Hezbollah demand of Israel to remove such a threat to the civilian population of northern Israel,” according to an Israeli readout.

    Gantz added that “the international community currently has an important role to play, and it must act to ensure that the state of Lebanon stops such aggression along its border,” the statement said.

    Albanese joins NZ, Canadian PMs to push for ‘sustainable ceasefire’ in Gaza

    Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has issued a joint statement along with his New Zealand and Canadian counterparts supporting a pause in fighting in Gaza and efforts towards a sustainable ceasefire. The statement, which quickly condemned Hamas’ October 7 attacks and recognised Israel’s right to defend itself, went on to ask that Israel respect humanitarian law in doing so.

    “The recent pause in hostilities allowed for the release of more than 100 hostages and supported an increase in humanitarian access to affected civilians,” it said. “We want to see this pause resumed and support urgent international efforts towards a sustainable ceasefire. This cannot be one-sided. Hamas must release all hostages, stop using Palestinian civilians as human shields, and lay down its arms.”

    The joint statement, issued this morning by Albanese, New Zealand Prime Minister Christopher Luxon and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, also recommitted to the push for a two-state solution but said there was no role for Hamas in the future governance of Gaza. “We support Palestinians’ right to self-determination. We oppose the forcible displacement of Palestinians from Gaza, the re-occupation of Gaza, any reduction in territory, and any use of siege or blockade. We emphasise that Gaza must no longer be used as a platform for terrorism,” it said

    My submission, in full, to this sham Covid-19 Inquiry. They excluded unilateral actions by the states, then they gave ONE WEEK for public submissions… it’s a slap in the face, but our best response is to FLOOD them with responses and make it clear we’ll be watching them.

    (See Thread for screenshots of his submission.)

    A few days ago, she was in favour of cash. Now she has flipped. She must have got The WEF Call.

    The costs to businesses and customers really come from card transactions but they are trying to blame cash. Costs to businesses to set up debit machines. Costs to consumers to pay fees, surcharges, transaction costs and so on.

    We don’t have much time.

    This is a government inquiry by stealth. To say that they had an inquiry but they only allowed a week for submissions hoping that no one would notice.

    This short notice has taken most people off guard. Topher Field’s suggestion is good. Flood them with responses so they know that they can’t fool the public. Remember the Disinformation Bill? They were taken aback by the number of responses.

    If you are Awake and want to be a Resister don’t be put off by the fact that there is no time to respond. Don’t worry about the quality of your response. The number of people responding is more important that the content. Leave the quality stuff to the experts.

    You can provide your name and contact details in the submission. Otherwise just post it as Anonymous. One thing is important. Be polite not rude or abusive with whatever you say. Otherwise it will get tossed off and they will use that as an excuse.

    As for the content, post whatever you want the government to know. There are all kinds of exclusions to what is included and what is not. If you have files for evidence, you can upload those. But if you just want to take part to add your voice, your can go down to the last box – additional info and fill that in.

    The rot started when Paul Keating was PM. He passed some legislation which said that all wages and salary payments had to be paid into a bank account. Prior to that, employees could take their wages in cash (remember those little brown envelopes), so people didn’t need to deal everyday with a bank.

    In those days banks used to compete with each other for your business, nowadays they provide no services and have a minimal number of branch offices as government policy dictates that you have to deal with them on their terms.

    Yeah, all signed off and filed away, too.
    But there are reasons for us to participate.

    From this article:

    Even if you’re not that good at expressing yourself, write in anyway – because the purpose of the inquiry is “identify lessons learned to improve Australia’s preparedness for future pandemics”.

    That means we will get more of the same if we don’t say no. Also, even if the government ignores it, researchers can analyse it later to inform reports on what went wrong.

    Here is a comment to the article:

    Thanks for the heads up Alison but do you honestly, genuinely believe this will make any difference? With the greatest respect, this is just glorified theatre…

    Alison’s response
    Yes! It makes a difference

    Policy advisors, media and researchers read submissions

    It goes on record forever

    It is easy to do and it is there for the reason of public consultation

    This is our chance to make our voice heard to the government. If we don’t put it on record then we can’t complain they don’t listen

    Of course they will likely declare a big victory but at least we must put the evidence on record that they are lying

    Australia considers US request to send warship to Red Sea as Houthis target shipping lanes

    The United States has asked Australia to send a warship to the Red Sea amid ongoing attacks on commercial shipping from Iran-backed militia.

    The request, made recently, came from the US navy which wants the vessel to join an international taskforce, of which Australia is one of 39 member nations.

    The US-led CMF aims to combat smuggling, piracy and narcotics in international waters around the Middle East.

    The treasurer, Jim Chalmers, said the Australian government already contributed to maritime security in that “often dangerous part of the world”.

    “When we get these kinds of requests from time to time, the usual practice would be for the defence minister to consider that, to recommend to colleagues whether [and] how we respond to that request,” he told the ABC on Thursday.

    “As I understand it, there has been a request made and we’ll consider it in the usual way.”

    Chalmers later told Nine’s Today Show “some kind of request” had been conveyed to the government.

    On Tuesday, a Norwegian-flagged commercial tanker was struck by a missile launched from Houthi-controlled Yemen, causing a fire and damage but no casualties.

    The attack on the tanker Strinda took place about 100km north of the Bab el-Mandab Strait connecting the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, a US official told Reuters.

    The Iran-aligned Houthis have waded into the Israel-Hamas conflict – which has spread around the Middle East since 7 October – attacking vessels in vital shipping lanes and firing drones and missiles at Israel.

    Last weekend, the Houthis said they would target all ships heading to Israel, regardless of their nationality, and warned international shipping companies against dealing with Israeli ports.

    The group, which rules much of Yemen, says its attacks are a show of support for Palestinians.

    They have vowed to continue until Israel stops its offensive on the Gaza Strip, more than 1,600km from the Houthi seat of power in Sanaa.

    During the first week of December, three commercial vessels came under attack in international waters, prompting a US navy destroyer to intervene.

    The US and Britain have condemned the attacks on shipping, blaming Iran for its role in supporting the Houthis.
