Dutch Intellectuals Apologize to Putin for Lies on MH17, Syria, Ukraine


We are seeing movement now of grass roots effort to take back more control of foreign policy

We are seeing movement now of grass roots effort to take back more control of foreign policy

[ Editor’s note:  We are moving now to try to have native language readers helping us to not miss gems like this in their national media, as it is very important to get efforts like these publicized as quickly as possible.

What these Dutch Intellectuals have done is given us a template for others to follow.

If we are to build up a cross-border network, we must first seek out and learn more about their opposition forces, so we can get acquainted with each other to explore ways to leverage our efforts.

We also want to eliminate as much duplication of effort as possible, in terms of nailing down how the elites are trying to scam us with all of these destabilization programs.

We can save a lot of time reinventing the wheel if we can learn quickly of a proven template being available to be adapted from one country to another. There are all kinds of things we can do to help even a small group get bigger that are easy and inexpensive to do.

The most obvious one for here in the US is to have our readers email this letter to the Dutch embassy in DC and also their closest consulate, and tell them you whole-heartedly support it, and ask when the Dutch government is going to get off its knees to the major power manipulators.

These embassies will be reporting back home at the end of each day on how much traffic they are getting, because that is their job. This allows us to use the communication structures we have in place now and respond quickly to try to push a story like this into mass media for more exposure.

The breakthrough the Dutch have given us is to begin using the obvious link that all of these destabilization efforts have been an offense by elites in Western governments for reasons they do not think we will agree with, hence they have cut our approval out of the process. Instead of lots of fragmented efforts with limited and evaporating effect, they can all be rolled into one big fist to pound back with.

The bridge we have to get over now is to not have our spreading the news around be the end of our efforts. We have to create a mass action capability to take us up to the next level of having more influence… Jim W. Dean ]

What Western leadership has done to Ukraine is unforgiveable

What Western leadership has done to Ukraine is unforgiveable

Dear Mr. President Putin,

Please accept our apologies on behalf of a great many people here in the Netherlands for our Government and our Media. The facts concerning MH17 are twisted to defame you and your country.

We are powerless onlookers, as we witness how the Western Nations, led by the United States, accuse Russia of crimes they commit themselves more than anybody else. We reject the double standards that are used for Russia and the West. In our societies, sufficient evidence is required for a conviction. The way you and your Nation are convicted for ‘crimes’ without evidence, is ruthless and despicable.

You have saved us from a conflict in Syria that could have escalated into a World War. The mass killing of innocent Syrian civilians through gassing by ‘Al-­‐Qaeda’ terrorists, trained and armed by the US and paid for by Saudi Arabia, was blamed on Assad. In doing so, the West hoped public opinion would turn against Assad, paving the way for an attack on Syria.

Not long after this, Western forces have built up, trained and armed an ‘opposition’ in the Ukraine, to prepare a coup against the legitimate Government in Kiev. The putschists taking over were quickly recognized by Western Governments. They were provided with loans from our tax money to prop their new Government up.

The people of the Crimea did not agree with this and showed this with peaceful demonstrations. Anonymous snipers and violence by Ukrainian troops turned these demonstrations into demands for independence from Kiev. Whether you support these separatist movements is immaterial, considering the blatant Imperialism of the West.

Russia is wrongly accused, without evidence or investigation, of delivering the weapons systems that allegedly brought down MH17. For this reason Western Governments claim they have a right to economically pressure Russia.

Western created and supported terrorist groups have begun just what we predicted, a self manufactured security threat.

Western-created and -supported terrorist groups have become just what we predicted, a self-manufactured security threat.

We, awake citizens of the West, who see the lies and machinations of our Governments, wish to offer you our apologies for what is done in our name. It’s unfortunately true, that our media have lost all independence and are just mouthpieces for the Powers that Be.

Because of this, Western people tend to have a warped view of reality and are unable to hold their politicians to account.

Our hopes are focused on your wisdom. We want Peace. We see that Western Governments do not serve the people but are working towards a New World Order. The destruction of sovereign nations and the killing of millions of innocent people is, seemingly, a price worth paying for them, to achieve this goal.

We, the people of the Netherlands, want Peace and Justice, also for and with Russia.
We hope to make clear that the Dutch Government speaks for itself only. We pray our efforts will help to diffuse the rising tensions between our Nations.

    This letter, while authentic, is not written by Cees Hamelink. The letter was originally written by a group of worried people in The Netherlands who mentioned the work of Hamelink in relation to the letter in an earlier version. Visitors of the website read the letter and assumed Hamelink was the writer. Please check/translate the green disclaimer after the original letter on this paige http //ommekeer-nederland.nl/brief-met-excuses-aan-president-putin/

    I’m not going to apologies for that scumbag Nazi Timmermans and the scumbag media in my country, they are everything I detest and will be my enemies to the grave..
    They killed my fellow countrymen and should all go straight to hell!

    I stand as far from them as the end of the universe to the earth.

    We have had issues here the last few days, DNS failure working up to forgetting I exist.

    Quick! Download the video before it’s removed. It’s on MH17

    There’s a translation there
    These body parts, there was some kind of liquid coming out of them as shown – not blood. This is what it looked like by day; by night the liquid around bodies looked strangely green. Very little, or no blood. The bodies looked like they were stored somewhere. There was an odd concentration of bodies, seemed like they were concentrated in 2 parts of the plane. It was impossible to stand by one of the plane parts – the smell of chemicals was overwhelming, as if in a morgue. Body parts didn’t look like they came from living people. There were birds that got hit and died. I took their pictures – by contrast, their bodies looked like they were those of living things, a very different look compared to the human bodies. Again and again, stressing that there was no blood and people didn’t seem like they were just recently alive.

    • CoJonesGrandes  August 30, 2014 at 1:25 pm


      Electronics mobile phones, notebooks were collected. We looked especially for dates. All private photos we found in victims’ phones were from 2013. None from 2014.

    wish it were a letter asking someone-anyone to make arrests of these “policy makers”.
    how is it insane McCain isnt arrested when out on his jaunts consorting with terrorists?

    The Letter of Apology to Putin coincides with Russia’s hacking abilities and Vladimir Putin’s advice not to mess with a nuclear Russia; hence, revisiting the Cold War rhetoric of Fail Safe, Dr. Stangelove, and The Mouse That Roared.

    Marshall McLuhan offered “The medium is the message.”

    Advanced weapon systems require preplanned programming strategies for maximum utilization and impact; wherein, preconceived situation and circumstance defines response-ability. In automated electromechanical systems, the human element of doubt is removed.

    Kubrick’s interpretation of Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001 A Space Odyssey begins with Moon-Watcher and a Clash of Tribes at the watering hole on the planet of the Apes; and, follows up with Clarke’s 2010 The Year We Make Contact.

    2001 and 2010 showcased the discovery of a moon-based artifact, the HAL9000 computer, astronaut Bowman, Space Age exploration and international co-operation, a prolonged Cold War existing between the U.S.A. and U.S.S.R., a Clash of Civilizations, the Jupiter Mission, and Alien Contact.

    The Day The Earth Stood Still (X3). Professor Barnhard.

    Live Free or Die Hard, the 2007 fourth sequel of the Die Hard series, dramatizes a cyber attack on Washington, D.C., as a Fire Sale, a Triad attack on the Washington Grid.

    Moonlighting’s Bruce Willis plays a rugged individualist, a die hard who personifies professional integrity, native ingenuity, and a determined perseverance to overcome the criminal revolt against civilization.

    Porosheno, Yatsenyuk and Kolomosky, a small group of Jews take over a non-Jewish country with a coup d’etat, backed by the Jewish US deputy Secretary of State. Western media ignore the Jewish role.

    I can be smeared with the accusation of anti-semitism for stating these facts.

    • John Kirby  August 30, 2014 at 2:40 am

      This stuation could lead to war, and if it did then again the west would be fighting a war on behalf of Jews. I am beginning to see WW1 and WW2 as wars on behalf of Jews.

    • moneytalks  August 30, 2014 at 6:15 pm

      You are not supposed to see anything that they do not want you to see . That is why the IZCS ultimately controls about 95% of all information ( ie. the basic components of knowledge ) by controlling the six major interlocked and global media conglomerates . That singular behemoth of global mind control technology impacts virtually 100% of the world population . Not hard to see why satan rules .

    • Charlotte NC Bill  August 30, 2014 at 5:18 am

      well truth is the enemy of the Synagogue of Satan….especially Truth Himself…which is why they arrested Him, tried Him in a kangaroo court, chained Him up all night and then marched Him to Pilate and demanded that He be crucified….

    • Charlotte NC Bill  August 30, 2014 at 5:29 am

      Yes we need to write letters along the same lines “We, the American people, apologize to the Taliban for invading Afghanistan after having allowed Mossad and their ubiquitous moles/allies to pull-off the attacks of 9-11…we also apologize for bombing and destroying Iraq and ( under Zionist influence ) purposely inciting sectarian bloodshed there. We apologize for destroying Libya and murdering their leader ( after making him the patsy for crimes like Pan Am 103-which was a Mossad suitcase bomb )..and we apologize to the people of Syria for sending terrorists into their country…Finally we apologize to the people of Ukraine for overthrowing their govt. and putting evil Talmudic people in charge….And, of course, our sincerest apologies to you Pres. Putin.”

    Music is so damn important
    I hesitate to mention.
    It is communication.
    It defeats the ‘tower of babel’, it soothes the Savage Beast (and the rest of us too
    And the sports fans do not know something important just happened!
    We have a beautiful Venue near here, it is called ‘Red Rocks’
    And to their credit, it looks like they did not mess it up. (it was upgraded a few years back.
    A very special Place, if you are nearby and get to hear music there Do It!
    (I still have this silly idea about playing there, probably just a pipe dream.
    Beautiful Place.
    Music is Very Important (I mentioned that


    • moneytalks  August 31, 2014 at 6:34 pm

      Not all music is good . Some is directly out of the tower of babel and is intended to get the Savage Beast riled up to go on a killing spree .

    • davidgordon  September 8, 2014 at 11:34 pm

      Go on a Sunday afternoon. The stage is open. Play Red Rocks. Many do.

  9. Paul James  August 30, 2014 at 1:29 am

    What a breath of fresh air!

    But the Netherlands better be on guard, because speaking truths like this can get one attacked by ‘al CIA Duh.’

  10. Simpleton  August 29, 2014 at 10:36 pm

    ITS A SATANIC SPELL OVER THE ENTIRE CONTINENT OF EUROPE, the synagogue of satan has been carrying out blood sacrifices in the Ukraine and Gaza for this spell. Its incredible they have muzzled the whole of Europe except perhaps Spain. The relentless spin and falsehood in the jews harps of the MSM has worked, the man in the street has been conned by the fake bloodless Foley “beheading” video and like. So whats the solution?

  11. Allesandro  August 29, 2014 at 4:54 pm

    Sent Letter.

  12. Howie J  August 29, 2014 at 4:14 pm

    This is very good.

    I will not apologize for our current leaders in Australia.

    Abbot and co are nothing more than a shameful bunch of U.S/israeli shills, and in no way represent we the people.

    I commend Russia for their restraint, When the U.S, E.U and our Australian yes men accuse your proud country of invading the Ukraine, As well as the many other lies our country’s leaders are guilty of.

    Russia has shown amazing restraint in the face of main stream media’s lies and omissions, Please do not think these idiots represent the average peoples views, Because i can assure you that they do not represent us at all.

    I call on President Putin to do what he thinks is right, And the majority of Australians will back you up.

    You are a true leader, A very rare thing in the world right now.

    If the Ukraine’s so called leaders keep murdering their own people, I hope you will intervene on behalf of all decent people and stop this madness before it gets worse.

    Do what needs to be done, The majority of the world will understand and will applaud you for doing the right thing.

    Thank you Mr Putin.

    • Keyser Soze  August 29, 2014 at 5:14 pm

      Totally agree Howie.
      The way Abbott and his cohorts are so obviously controlled by the Kosher Nostra and US handlers are an embarrassment to Australia.
      Only yesterday once again he was outraged at how Russia had invaded Ukraine and the Opposition Leader Bill ‘Showbags’ Shorten supported him and is probably far worse than Abbott with his stupid comments pushed by his Kosher Nostra pals along with Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, are dangerous fools.
      Yet again they are questioning whether Vladimir Putin should be banned from the coming G20 summit in November due to his offensive behaviour!
      I for one hope they do ban Putin from attending as I believe it,s a dangerous place for Putin to travel to in the current climate and that if they do I hope China and other Brics countries refuse to attend in support.
      That would really make Abbott and his cronies look the bought controlled shills that they are.
      Australia would be far better off being a member of Brics than the ally of the world,s leading criminal cabal.
      I admire Vladimir Putin and his actions, rarely does a gifted statesman of his calibre come along and show the world how it should be done.
      By 1998, according to The House of Rothschild author Niall Ferguson, Rothschild Australia accounted for an incredible one third of the global N.M. Rothschild’s groups profits!
      It,s not hard to see why Australia has been taken over by these thugs.

    • moneytalks  August 29, 2014 at 9:43 pm

      The Rothschild empire owns about half of the world thanks to the 1913 US Federal Reserve Act . N.M. Rothschild is only a small part of that empire which has many other high profile names associated with it such as Rockefeller , Morgan , Schiff , Vanderbilt , Mellon and so on including many nonUSA entities . Indeed , it is not difficult to believe that the Rothschild empire has quietly and covertly overthrown Australian sovereignty .

    • Simpsons Donkey  August 30, 2014 at 8:35 pm

      Well said Howie. The craven loons of Canberra are zio-NATO stooges. That’s why we are in Afghanistan with NATO, propping up the world’s biggest heroin network. Look up Malalai Joya on this, she’s the only honest Afghan comment you’ll ever get.
      After the ‘Bringing them Home’ farce Abbot has entirely forgotten the dead of Flight MH-17 — Australians too, to judge by the zionist local media.
      I haven’t. The Chocolate King and Kolomoisky must die. So must Victoria Nuland. That Jew skank killed my countrymen as surely as if she pressed the button on the Su-25 ‘s 30-mm cannon.

  13. Bartered  August 29, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    I guess its nice to see that the US isnt the only country were the media is controled by globalist Zionism. Its also nice to see that academics with no ties to the cabal are willing to reach out to outsiders to convey their distrust and non-allegiance to multi-billion dollar media machine that excludes the truth.

  14. FactsofLife  August 29, 2014 at 3:32 pm

    I was curious, why the EU wants to regulate and separate production and distribution of energy resources i.e. North Stream and South Stream from Russia, but ignores the production and distribution monopoly on media, news, freedom of speech etc. Shouldn’t the BBC and News Corp and others be broken up (trust busted) using the same logic that is propagated against the Russian energy transport via South Stream? Trust bust the media monopolies and ologopolies first then worry about the rest. EU pharsitical hypocrisy exposed.

    • Allesandro  August 29, 2014 at 4:57 pm

      Yes, The Telecommunications Act of 1996 should be obliterated for the welfare of all as this allowed the concentration of media to occur.

    • franktalk  August 29, 2014 at 11:49 pm

      Now that is the question! The ‘why’, I believe is discovered here in this recent article on oilprice

      http //oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-General/Has-Ukraine-Shot-Itself-in-the-Foot-With-Gas-Pipeline-Deal.html

      The elite are gutting these companies and giving themselves billions and sacking the workers. it is happening all around the planet, but people think their government is watching out for them so they sleep.

  15. brubank-guy  August 29, 2014 at 2:52 pm

    Absolutely superb from these rebel intellectual Dutchmen … as the Dutch say, ‘Uitstekend!’ (Outstanding!) … But as far as the Dutch government is concerned … Dutch banks have been tied to British banks since the 1690s, when Dutch prince William was named English king after England’s 1688 Revolution, and the Bank of England was formed under his rule … Now, it is said Dutch banks are propped up partly by CIA-Israel-tied drug money, which was part of the reason Israel’s ICTS security firm was given control of Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport, to help transfer drugs, cash, and underwear bombers … Anglo-Dutch oil, Anglo-Dutch bankers …

    This petition is an initiative from the Dutch website http //ommekeer-nederland.nl/
    The administrators of the website attached a YouTube clip of professor Hamelink in which he explains why the public should not believe everything the newspapers write. This might have suggested that Hamelink wrote the letter. However, this is not the case. The administrators state this (in Dutch)explicitly on their website

    “Opmerking Deze brief is NIET door Professor Cees Hamelink geschreven noch tot op heden door hem ondertekend! Deze brief is vele malen gecopieerd op andere websites die geen toestemming hebben gevraagd. Velen daarvan hebben professor Cees Hamelink als schrijver neergezet.

      ‘This letter is not written by Prof. Cees Hamelink as of now, nor signed by him!

    There sure is a lot of spin going on. As we speak MH17 is being discussed on Dutch television, with the conclusion that we don’t know who is to blame for the attack. The letter is however NOT written by the professor Hamelink. The people behind it have a website De Ommekeer or “the turnaroud” with alternative viewpoints. They are not to blame for the use of the name Hamelink. See (in Dutch)
    http //ommekeer-nederland.nl/brief-met-excuses-aan-president-putin/
    That all be true, I agree with most of the letter!

    Thanks Dean, but nothing yet in Dutch newspapers or on the news channels on TV.
    I have forwarded your article to family members and friends in the Netherlands and Italy.
    Great conversation this morning with Peter LaVelle on RT news channel.
    Watching news on the Dutch tv channels I never see the devastation in East Ukraine and
    mentioning of all the dead.
    Plenty about Gaza, always everything is because of the rockets of Hamas, never a word
    hie the people in Gaza have to live.
    I wonder is this still a feeling of guild from the Dutch that the Jewish people were rounded
    up and deported. But the young population don’t know about that time in history.
    Don’t know what they are being taught in their schools now a days.
    The youth is the same as here busy with their soccer games and sports and the Dutch travel
    a lot.
    Paid vacation plus vacation money helps, unkown to Americans.
    To top it off they are getting every 3 month a stipend for each child they have.
    So no excuse for a Dutch child not to have proper clothing and shoes.
    But with the sanctions it will be hard on the vegetable/fruit growers and the cheese industry.
    It is hard to understand why they go along with the demands if the USA, Brussel just follows
    blindly even if their own people are getting hurt by these actions.
    They need to show the suffering from the east Ukraine and stop making the freedom fighters
    as terrorist.

    • moneytalks  August 29, 2014 at 10:04 pm

      You have to think like a satanist — the sanctions will result in good public relations for the illegal drug industry since it will be that money from the underground economy that keeps everyone afloat .

  21. guitargirl  August 29, 2014 at 11:41 am

    Yes, Mr. Dean! Go Dutch Go!!
    Jack Heart told me about this letter,
    the day before yesterday.

    You can bet you you know what off,
    that I will contact the Dutch Embassy
    and tell them what I think of the Dutch
    poodle government plus my support for
    this letter.
