Press TV: Tragedy of US police training by Israeli companies

Israeli Training:  Houston Police Shoot Wheelchair Amputee Said Armed with Ballpoint Pen

By Gordon Duff and Press TV

During the Bush administration, Israeli-American dual citizen and Director of Homeland Security Chertoff mandated that American police forces be trained by Israeli groups in crowd control, counter-terrorism and intelligence gathering.

Since that time, shootings of unarmed civilians has gone up 500%, attacks on legal political protests by police have become a scandal and huge stockpiles of ammunition and military heavy weaponry have been distributed to law enforcement groups in every region of America, both local and federally controlled.

Additionally, Army Chief of Staff General Odierno has offered the use of the US Army, an offer published in the Council on Foreign Relations journal, Foreign Affairs, to suppress political dissent by force, a violation of his oath of office and, quite literally, an act of conspiracy against the sovereignty of the US and State governments.

The current problem with law enforcement and the diminishment of legal rights of Americans is now at levels that cannot be ignored any longer.  It has become obvious to an ever increasing number of Americans that something is in the works, perhaps a political coup or a military take-over.

Years ago such things were done behind closed doors, now it seems it can be done in the open, just like shooting down presidents, killing senators in plane crashes or blowing up office buildings.

Instability in the United States is very real.  With Mitt Romney planning a new war while cutting taxes for the rich, one in four Americans is suffering from malnutrition and one in five children live with constant hunger in a nation that spends billions of dollars to subsidize and store excess food.

There is now a legitimate concern that armed law enforcement officers, numbering over 800,000, with constables and auxiliaries taking that number over 1 million, foreign led criminal organizations may systematically be gaining control of America in a form of “rot from within.”

It doesn’t take a genius to track down the money behind half of America’s politicians to their source, bank fraud, narcotics, gun running, medical scams and the oil monopoly.  This is the new organized crime.

What had once been police is how a “hodge-podge” thousands of agencies, each one falling like dominoes, unable to resist offers of advanced military weapons, offers of “informal discretionary funding” (bribes) and quickly degenerating into an army of occupation.

Key to this has been Israeli training, sending into America so-called experts who have long operated in an environment where killing civilians under cover of a rigged racist system of government has been official policy for over six decades.

Israel’s militarized police are trained to violate human rights on a daily basis.  116 UN resolutions have been filed and passed by majority vote by the General Assembly citing them with apartheid and genocide, exactly the description of America that Mitt Romney and his friends are offering America.


In my own town recently, a police officer shot and killed an Iraq War veteran while the man was asleep.  The officer had been called to the home because the family was concerned about their son who was having trouble adjusting.

They let the officer in the house, and rather than waking the sleeping veteran, the officer simply emptied his pistol into the man’s body.

I just did a Google search of the phrase:  “police shoot unarmed man” and got 1,610,000 results.

Either we talk about little else or this seems to happen a lot.

In almost every case, the officers responsible for these killings are trained in the Israeli martial art of Krav Fit, contracts pushed by the Department of Homeland Security.

Israeli groups train in crowd control, use of military weapons and armoured vehicles against America’s “Occupy dissidents,” the poor, the homeless, mental patients and veterans, so far.

When the amount of ammunition is counted up and the military firepower estimated, the list may well expand to “anyone not willing to submit to live as human slaves.”


The death toll is never counted but is currently in the hundreds, perhaps thousands.  Police are never properly investigated, never called to account, just as with the IDF team that ended their standoff with 22 year old American waif, Rachel Corrie, who was crushed TWICE by a “free” Caterpillar bulldozer, a gift from the American people, donated to be used to crush the homes of Palestinians.

In this incident, Corrie was protecting 6 small children.  An Israeli court found the only way Corrie could be dealt with, by an entire platoon of IDF Commandos, was to drive over her with a bulldozer.  This was considered a legal use of force against an American citizen.

And Israel wonders why tens of millions of Americans suspect them for plotting 9/11?


This police incident was a classic.  The victim was living in a group home for the mentally ill.  He was in a wheelchair having lost an arm and leg some time before in a rail accident.

Two Israeli trained Houston Police were sent.  The spokesman for the Houston Police, Jodi Siva, claimed the man “cornered” one of the police officers and threatened him with an object.

Both officers had completed Krav Fit martial arts training from their Israeli instructors at a cost of thousands of dollars a day.

There is, within this tragedy an aspect of absurdity.  Other than guns and watching sports, martial arts is one of the biggest forms of recreation in the United States.  I began formal training at 8 and continued as a trainer or in competition well into my 50s.

Of course all US Marines have advanced martial arts training as with Army Rangers, Special Forces, SEALS, specialized units of the Air Force and about 4 million civilians who hold “black belt” or above level training.

There are two initial issues here, one, of course, is turning to what may officially be the least athletic nation on earth, Israel, for training in an area of athletic prowess, sort of a “coals to Newcastle” type of thing.

Israel is not Okinawa or Korea.  If I want violin or chess lessons, Israel will be among my first 100 choices.

The second, of course, is that the whole thing is a “con” in the first place, the only time a police officer in Houston was involved in a potential terror plot, he mistakenly killed a CIA agent.  This is quite an interesting story from May 2008:

Federal sources close to this case have told me CIA Agent Roland Carnaby had proof a “suitcase nuke” had arrived inside the U.S. from Israel on Tuesday. He was chasing the device and the Israelis who had it.

As local law enforcement was called-in, for some unknown reason cops allegedly began chasing the CIA Agent instead of the Israelis and ultimately shot the CIA Agent dead!

The Houston wheelchair shooting is a classic.  We have two armed police officers, highly trained in the mysterious martial arts of Israel, we have a subject in a wheel chair with one arm and one leg and in his hand is a ballpoint pen.

The officers, of course, had batons, tasers, and were wearing body armour.

A more likely scenario, one with a typical Israeli aspect to it, would have had the second officer simply take the handles of the wheel chair, run it out into the street and under a passing bus or perhaps a bulldozer of one could be arranged.

The victim had committed no crime, had no warrants but was suspected of “causing a disturbance.”  Group homes, such as this one, are seldom staffed with competent professional personnel and are generally a method of bilking government programs out of money while commonly physically and emotionally abusing residents.

Personnel working in “group homes” typically have, themselves, criminal records.  This is the average qualification in the United States for taking care of the old, the helpless and the infirm.

The officer who killed the unidentified man is named Matthew Jacob Marin.  He has been placed on a 3 day administrative leave.

This is his second killing in the past few years.

In August, a Jeffrey T. Johnson, a legitimate armed suspect, was shot and killed by two New York police officers, also trained by Israeli companies.

The officers were 8 feet from Johnson when he drew his weapon.  They then opened fire, hitting Johnson but also hitting 9 other people in the area, spraying bullets everywhere.

The incident began when Johnson shot and killed his Israeli employer who had recently ended his employment for reasons Johnson had found “unsatisfactory.”

New York police who cornered Johnson, who was armed with a Spanish made Star .380 7 shot pistol with 2 rounds remaining in the magazine, then opened fire, hitting Johnson then “accidentally” shooting 9 others, some as far “off line” as 120 degrees.

Was the Israeli training team brought in there from the Haifa School for the Blind?

Two days ago, an 83 year old crime victim, Delma Tower of Lynchburg, Virginia was killed by police for “failing to obey orders.”  The 83 year old was fleeing armed intruders who had broken into her home, she was barefoot, wearing a night dress and was not wearing either her glasses or hearing aid.

Police were unable to discern a half-naked 83 year old woman who was nearly blind from the two large male armed intruders, who of course escaped while the victim of the crime, while is so often the case, died in a hail of police gunfire.   Each month, the National Rifle Association prints a magazine read by millions of Americans.  This organization, one that works closely with police and is associated with the Romney campaign, lauds civilians who use their right to bear arms and reports carefully selected stories where civilians making use of their constitutional rights, but are not killed by police who mistake them for criminals.

I could list a hundred, a thousand such shootings.  Sometimes weapons are found at the scene, sometimes those killed have criminal records, and incidents like this have a long history.

What has changed today is that those killed are simply gunned down, no weapon mysteriously dropped by the police, victims are often aged, sometimes even financially well off, there seems to be an agenda that, more than anything else, resembles terrorism, the random killing of any American anywhere, anytime and under any circumstances by police who are unable to explain what they do.

Moreover, nobody ever seriously questions anything that police do.

It is almost as though a mass psychosis has taken over American law enforcement, every face a potential “bin Laden,” every minor confrontation solved only with volleys of gunfire.

The only common factor in so many of these incidents is the Israeli training, teaching American police to mimic Israeli treatment of the Palestinian people.  It seems American police have caught Israel’s national obsession of fearfulness and feigned victimization.

    Thanks Mr. Duff. and what do you think of this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpU-X009tDI

  2. LC  September 29, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    “Craig Hulet testified last week why certain officials should be rounded up for 9/11 complicity. He said Dick Cheney has always rejected U.S. Secret Service protection due to his wrongdoings (which he obviously meant Cheney’s treasonous 9/11 involvements) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jyp6L2pdsko

    • Gordon Duff  September 29, 2012 at 4:57 pm

      Cheney spent much time in Germany at the Marshall Center in Garmisch. He ate lunch every day at the Chapeau Claque, owned by the Sturm family.

      Here is the fun part. From time to time, I would work the kitchen during lunches there, downing pints of beer and turning out spaetzel mit ementhaler und weisswurst

      Cheney probably ate food I made.

      Carol helped bus tables.

      We saw no Secret Service protection with Cheney.

      As a VP, he was EVIL, as a restaurant patron, not so bad.


  3. LC  September 29, 2012 at 7:55 am

    Many good suggestions here. a possible start is for the U.S. Secret Service to commit to their real job for once (homeland security) by rounding up the few dozen 9/11 accomplices, starting with Rudi Guliani, Larry Silversteen, Nic. Rockefeller, etc. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZjKKUEHTKk & set them up for a Nuremberg style trial…

  4. kattmanduu  September 28, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    It is time we take some action here. We need to remove all the US israeli dual citizens and pro israeli folks from our government and military at all levels. Petition congress to demand that all support of any kind be stopped until israel signs the NPT and also submit to 2000 weapons inspectors searching every inch of their country including every ship they have under their flag, all underground facilities and all businesses and industrial facilities for any signs or evidence of any kind of possible WMD as we did with Iraq and the many inspections that Iran has submitted to, By the way “Reality check” the Savak was disbanded and arrested when the Iranian revolution in the 80’s against the dictator that the west put there in 1953 took place and they are all still in jail or dead by now. That is just as bad as saying that China or Russia wants to nuke us, the cold war is over and nobody won. The military industrial complex is only pushing that old idea to keep you buying their old weapons we never really needed in the 1st place. The CIA was set up by them to ensure we would buy all these offensive weapons we never needed.

  5. REALITY CHECK  September 28, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    The Mossad also trained Iran’s secret police..the SAVAK.

  6. Leif Oldhart  September 28, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Who was it that when confronted with some horrible massacre (maybe Port Arthur), said “only Jews kill like that!”?

  7. redregal  September 28, 2012 at 6:57 am

    I just googled “police shoot unarmed man” and got only 77,000 results, substantially less than the search by the author of this article. Apparently the information gatekeepers, the ziowhores are installing more filters to keep the truth from coming out. But really, who would search such a question other than people who are already awake? Most of the unawakened think it’s a good thing to have the Israelis train our police. Comments like, “Say what you want about Israel, but they don’t take no shit” says it all.

  8. WillieG51  September 28, 2012 at 5:15 am

    Thanks again Mr. Duff, for top notch reporting. . I remember years ago reading about some police chiefs getting advanced “training” from Israelis. I wondered what purpose it could serve, yet I knew it couldn’t be good. .As the treason unfolds. .we need this kind of reporting to make full sense of what’s going on to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. .

  9. Cold Wind  September 28, 2012 at 4:53 am

    The “rot from within”: the problem of a malefic foreign state militarizing our local police force is something I have pointed out repeatedly in my comments to this website. At center of ‘deep politics’ in this country is Israel. The Israelis have worked systematically and over the decades to infiltrate or otherwise develope assets (through expert profiling) in all of our vital institutions, especially “Law Enforcement”. As the article indicates, Israel’s success is indicative by the transformation of our local police into oppressive brutes, This unthinking, dangerous and brutish behavior of our police suggest we are like Palestine an occupied nation.

    Lol @ Jewish martial arts joke

  11. LC  September 27, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    Great article Mr. Duff:
    Israeli terrorists training of U.S. police forces have been mostly under disguises of anti-terrorism and riot-control but in fact the terrorists have been training the American cop for brutal evictions to implement the latest American holocaust as Rothschild’s banking houses (under many other names) have been foreclosing and plundering millions of American homes & businesses documented here, and have been evicting the American public out of cities and into refugee camps, a crime Rothschild’s terrorists have mastered against defenseless Palestinians, Armenians, and the rest of the world’s 99%: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLRAFgBh37w http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eO-eVe2xJZs&feature=pyv&ad=2919257855&kw=holocaust http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpRXkk76Qkg http://solargeneral.com/library/jewish-genocide-christopher-jon-bjerknes.pdf

    Many American Troops killed by snipers in Iraq (including Marines) were killed by ISRAELI SNIPERS. Their policy was to inflame the situation and create hatred between the U.S. and Iraq.

    Be sure to watch the film. at:


    Story is top one and starts with, “One of the most important videos ever made, and it is only 4 minutes long.”

    “This video proves beyond all doubt that a majority of American deaths in Iraq were caused by Israeli snipers shooting American troops to piss them off and make them kill Iraqis in a rampage. This is horrible damning footage that could force an end to Israeli aggression as we have known it. Fat chance justice will be served, but when you see this you will KNOW who the terrorists are.”

  13. Allesandro  September 27, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    If you look at the cruelty exhibited by the “Jews” on the Russian’s from 1918 on, they were the TOP hired Killers for Stalin, you will see a craven disregard for “Human Life” the likes of which have never been seen before.

    This is just one example. But this is what they have in store for us Americans. They want OUR COUNTRY, the U.S.A. and that is what the plan is. All those fences and restrictions on movement are NOT to keep the Mexicans or anybody else out, they are to trap us in for total annihilation at their hands and those they train.

    They know the cruelty of Israel against the Palestinians will not last or be tolerated much longer, they will let the “stupid Jews” in Israel get exterminated, but they know their power resides inside many “Western” governments and they will use it to takeover, after they let the stupid Jews get slaughtered back in Israel, once the world becomes aware of their “Jewish” crimes.

    On the death of all the Jews back in Israel , they will again play the “Holocaust Sympathy, Victim Card” to the absolute HILT.

      I would love to see Mr. Reed’s excellent research distilled and distributed as widely as possible. His extensive, detailed and documented work has been suppressed for too long. a somewhat lesser known example of the brutal atrocities that await us all if we don’t dismantle this vicious Khazar satanism is the Holodomor in the Ukraine in the 1930-33.

    • AnthonyH  September 28, 2012 at 9:57 am

      Sometime around 1996, I became curious about events surrounding the so-called collapse of the Soviet Union. I went to the Los Angeles Times website and did a search for “Soviet emigration”. Over 200 articles came up, and all of them pertained to “Jewish emigration” from the Soviet Union between 1987 and 1992.

      The main theme of these articles was: a) the Soviet Union was in the process of breaking up and freedom would dawn on the morrow; b) because of this prospect, Jews were “fleeing in a panic”.

      During this exodus, more than a million former Judeo/Bolshevik bureaucrats and factory managers, musicians and army officers, computer engineers and theater types fled the scene – with at least half settling in Israel; where American taxpayers built resort/retirement homes for them.

      I condensed my findings into a two-part article, ‘Exodus #23, part 1’ (http://redressone.wordpress.com/exodus-pt1/).

      It’s a rather funny topic; the intense kind; and should leave no doubt what freaks of nature we are dealing with.

  16. matthewmccauley  September 27, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    Mr. Duff,

    I can review Douglas Reed’s “Controversy of Zion” if VT is interested. Reed was Central European Correspondent for the London Times in the war years, and met much of the Soviet leadership, which was 9/10 Khazar. So the real holocaust began under the Bolsheviks and continued past WWII. All is heavily documented in Reed’s work. Thank you as always for your research and insight.

    • Tiu  September 28, 2012 at 4:50 pm

      I too would highly recommend the “Controversy of Zion”. Considering it was written in the 1950’s it’s explains exactly what is going on today, and is also documents the fascinating historical path which has brought us to the point of the destruction of the second Babylon… which this time is the United States of America.
      It is a must read.

  17. Subvet416  September 27, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    Police and first responders all across the country receive free training in how to deal with “mentally ill” individuals from the corrupt big pharma front group NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). Mental hospitals often pay generous finders fees for each new patient brought in. NAMI is even on the grounds of VA Medical Centers, in offices and meeting rooms furnished by the DVA.

    For more background on NAMI, search “NAMI Senator Charles Grassley” and look at the dark humor here.

    Yep were toast. They’ve figured out how to identify the fascist personalities and give them badges, or jobs with TSA. Of course it’s been going on for decades…but since 9/11, it’s turned into an epidemic . But Obama is just as guilty , if not more so…since he promised America change, and only gave us a second helping of crap. Any sane person needs to be thinking about getting out.
