Damascus Terror Conference Gets a Taste of “AIPAC’s” Criminal Ties


By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor


Two days of meetings were brought to a screeching halt when Gordon Duff spoke at the Damascus conference.  Seated on his right, and speaking next, was Colonel James Hanke, US Army Special Forces (ret).  On his left, the Syrian Minister of Justice  Najm al Ahmad and Mike Harris.  Handling the camera on this short video is Jim W. Dean.

This may well have been the first time in history an American intelligence team of “non-activists” gave a military briefing to an audience of this type, including key military leaders of diverse tribal forces throughout Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, a Russian delegation and others from around the world.

    …. like breathing fresh air, the lungs not quite used to it and welcomed…God only knows these people deserve truth

    I had no idea you asked for the web site for the after conference interview you did for press TV until yesterday. Sorry about that. The above web site has a break down of the conference and an interview with you outside the conference room. Their are plenty of other sites that discuss the conference and your involvement, but no video.

    Stay safe wen you guts come back to THE USA.
    John McCain what à traitor hè is to his country.
    But in Europe Theo have them too.
    Watch the Dutch guy Timmermans, hè was in Kiev with THE coupe d’etat. Would not surprise me when he met Nuland there.
    For his speech on Dutch TV after the downing of M17 they called him man of the year.
    He just got a job in Brussel.
    Is Brussel just following orders of the USA and Israel?
    Why is there no outcry from Brussel what Kiev is doing in East Oekranie .
    You don’t hear a thing from them either about what is happening in Syria on,e when their is a beheading of a western man.
    What about the rumor that Israel want to take over Oekranie since things are not going well in Israel?

    This conference was historic and is sending shock-waves around the World. The reason? Because Veterans Today Senior Editor Gordon Duff spoke out publicly about what is the true cause of ISIS/ISIL and all the hell they are unleashing in Iraq and Syria right now. What Gordon Duff stated is historic because no one has ever dared to speak the real truth in spades before publicly or identify the Top Policy-Makers who set ISIS/ISIL up.

    Yes, this speech was true Heroism. Finally we have someone who is speaking up for all the little people that have been disenfranchised by crooked government officials bought and owned by the Ruling Crime Cabal which feeds off of human trafficking and illegal narcotics.

    This frank presentation of the real facts behind World Terrorism can no longer be disputed. The fact that it is caused by a worldwide criminal organization and is really a crime issue has now been verified and is backed up by indisputable, publicly verifiable evidence.

    Highest commendations to Gordon Duff and his Team who have served all peace and truth lovers everywhere very, very well. Now this Truth is out there and it can never be extinguished. Without secrecy this International Zionist Crime Cabal cannot stay operational

    One thing I didn’t say yesterday, didn’t want to ruin the moment, but after thinkin about it don’t mind if I do; everyone wants to tell Jim Dean and Gordon Duff how brave they are, how morally righteous, what good men they are. And rightfully so. They are. But maybe the next time Mr. Duff asks you to do something; like vote the republican neo con slaves out of office maybe you will actually do it instead of sitting home with your Jim Stone comic books while a bunch of half crazed senior citizens give them a moral referendum to go on and start WW III. Then maybe he wouldn’t be over there with Mr. Dean risking their ausses to deliver a message.

    Oh and Mr. Duff seen you put the thousand yard stare on for your little speech. You still got it…

  6. Jim W. Dean  December 11, 2014 at 12:09 pm

    Thanks for mentioning the translator…he was absolutely tops…and had no trouble remembering it all.

  7. Jim W. Dean  December 11, 2014 at 11:40 am

    “but you will never reach the american public until major US TV stations attend your little get togethers and bring it to the masses. ” Tomer…I know it is near Xmas but we have never claimed to be Santa Claus…and we don’t do the Tooth Fairy thing. Your pissing on alternative media was a cheap shot, as most for yours are (I think you call it self agrandizement). The conference remarks were focused on the people, orgs and media there. The response was far better than we expected, and we built some bridges. As for not solving the world’s problems during the two day conference, we are guilty, as are you. But the difference is that we were invited, and you were not…and never will be. So save the lecturing as you have profiled yourself quite well here. BTW, Gordon is giving these kinds of briefings all year long.

  8. Connie  December 11, 2014 at 12:23 am

    @ DaveE- “the stakes couldn’t be higher”
    Have you read Lasha’s new essay, China and the Jews? Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse…

  9. Connie  December 11, 2014 at 12:03 am

    Kudos! Thanks for the video. Now we all can share it on social media to help expose McCain and give Hagel his due honor. This frank talk about the subversion of our government presented to an official international conference breaks a taboo thereby bringing hope to those in the know and opens eyes of those in the dark.

    • Jim W. Dean  December 11, 2014 at 12:14 pm

      Now you know why we went. Opportunities like this do not grow on trees, and there was no point in holding anything back. If they were unhappy all they could do turns over to ISIS for some aggressive barbering!! 🙂
      What they got was one of Gordon’s famous, “How the world really works” briefings…and they are never pretty.

    • wiggins  December 13, 2014 at 12:29 pm

      …or heaven forfend – rectal feeding. Oh! Hang on….they don’t do that.

  10. Bartered  December 10, 2014 at 11:15 pm

    Mr. Duff,
    You mentioned that you didn’t get a standing ovation. I think they knew you weren’t giving a pep talk or an earth shattering lesson of how the West has tried to destroy them. Hearing it from respected professionals who fought for their country and see the mess its in is more than enough to earn their respect.

    • Gordon Duff  December 11, 2014 at 4:51 pm

      Were you in the room, you would have thought I was a snake charmer. There was much drama as to why I had to close the conference with this talk and why the Minister of Justice is sitting next to me.

      When we finished, some in the room were crying. This went much longer with Hanke finishing up. The rest of it is online somewhere. See if it can be found.

    Israel “The Evil Apartheid Empire” ___It’s Self Destructive Bomb Is Ticking Faster

     “Despite pressure exerted by the USA and Israel, Switzerland to hold summit on Palestinians to convene on December 17 the states that are party to the Fourth Geneva Convention signatories to discuss the situation on the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem.”

     “Netanyahu will fly to Rome on Monday for an urgent meeting with John Kerry, ahead of Palestinians’ UN bid, at the Security Council this month.
     One drafted by the Palestinians, the other by European States. Despite intense pressure by the Americans, the Palestinians are determined to push the process through.
     In addition to the Palestinian-Jordanian proposal, France, in coordination with Britain and Germany, has also laid out an alternative and more complex draft. The French draft sets a two-year deadline for reaching a permanent and present a list of principle arrangements can be reached. One the borders of the Palestinian State must be based on the 1967 lines with land swaps and that Jerusalem must be the capital city of both states.
     The American administration wants to avoid vetoing a resolution regarding the Palestinians at all costs, due to fears it would harm the coalition with moderate Arab states in fighting the Islamic State (ISIS).”

  12. Risodang  December 10, 2014 at 10:12 pm

    Gordon, I really appreciate what you and all of VT journalists do. I hope everyone recovers from their
    long journey.
    My question: What do you see, good and/or bad, coming out of the Sec. of Def., Charles Hagel, resignation? and vetting a new person to take his place? And a follow up — your opinion on the replacement of Army Gen. Chuck Jacoby, Jr. with a Navy Admiral Bill Gortney at NORAD command?

    There may be some cowardice involved but then common sense also says that you do not take a rope and jump into a river full of 2000 pound crocodiles to catch each one and bring them to the jailhouse . Then there still is much disbelief and ignorance to overthrow .

    I hope your efforts bring great results. The spear has been cast into the monster, but many more will be needed to bring it down and to its end. A wounded animal (or monster) is a dangerous thing, so I hope you all stay safe and prevail for the voiceless and unrepresented (except for VT of course!) masses.

  16. lawrencedickerson  December 10, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    Mr. Duff,

    Was there any fallout from the US government over the VT activities in areas that are considered highly classified and extremely sensitive?I applaud you and your group’s efforts in leading the way to expose the Israeli world cartel in all things criminal.I expect that we citizens of the USA will have to take to the streets to reclaim our Republic and reinstitute the middle class.Shades of anarchy are already beginning to shine as people raise their voices against the murdering of our people.Save me a spot when it happens,I’ll charge up my wheelchair and oil my weapons.After all I am part of that “well regulated militia”.

  17. CoJonesGrandes  December 10, 2014 at 2:31 pm

    There’s a transcript of what Duff said at

    • Jim W. Dean  December 11, 2014 at 7:48 pm

      Thanks for the transcript find.

  18. windyw  December 10, 2014 at 2:15 pm

    Thank you Gordon for reaching out to the Syrian people on behalf of the American people.

    If one is looking out for the remains of honest and true US patriotism look no more, the VT has got it.

  21. davor  December 10, 2014 at 1:39 pm

    Thankful for those that made Syria last this long and endure the international crime cabal boot, so VT can pay a visit and bring in the ugly truth. But as the new year approaches so does the fiery horizon of McCain and the Goodfellas.

  22. Bente  December 10, 2014 at 1:09 pm

    Phuhhhh … truth… at last… thanks you Gordon, Jim and your team at VT

  23. Serenity  December 10, 2014 at 12:05 pm

    Gordon Duff, Thank you most sincerely for your heartfelt courage in speaking powerful & revealing truths to the conference!!! This is what makes VT a “Voice in the Wilderness” despite the horrific lies & corruption of the MSM. Please stay safe as you continue this unstoppable force for the good of We The People…

  24. guitargirl  December 10, 2014 at 11:42 am

    Way to go Uncle Duff!! Thank you so much for calling a
    spade a spade.

    And also my gratitude for Jim Dean, Col. James Hanke
    and Mike Harris!


  25. mary  December 10, 2014 at 11:29 am

    Gordon I listened to mike harris with Kerry Cassidy on your Syrian visit. He mentioned the et element, will you share any of this with us?

    He also said how the Syrians wants to know what is it that the US wants, so they do not end up like Iraq. How awful, to bethought of as the country that harms all these people, I admire all of you for trying, if nothing else maybe some of them will realize that Americans are just as trapped in this evil system as they are.

  26. wiggins  December 10, 2014 at 11:09 am

    Great stuff….can’t see how anybody can bitch about this….know doubt some will.

  27. Foci  December 10, 2014 at 11:06 am

    Good one MR Duff. Brass ballz. I applaud your effort. I still can’t reason with your democrats good-republicans bad meme as I believe they’re both mostly funded by the same shitbags and work for the same team, Neither represent me, but this is a breath of fresh air. Kudos.

  28. doingood  December 10, 2014 at 9:34 am

    Thank you all so much for your courage and commitment to say and do the right thing where it may do the most good. This is so heartwarming. There were a few discontented faces in the crowd so please be very careful and may you all have a safe return home.

  29. Gordon Duff  December 10, 2014 at 7:45 am


    CNN, CNBC and others are liars and thieves. You say I can only claim success when liars and thieves say I am successful?

    Have you lost your mind?

  30. Keyser Soze  December 10, 2014 at 7:33 am

    All members of your group in the Middle East should be congratulated on your outstanding effort to tell it like it is.
    Rarely do we see a gathering like this where the truth is laid bare for all to see.
    I don,t think I,ve seen anyone speak and word it so well as you did Gordon.
    You are brave people indeed.
    Your comments on Sheldon Adelson reminded me of a well known quote.

    “We have the best Government money can buy!”……..Mark Twain.

  31. CoJonesGrandes  December 10, 2014 at 6:53 am

    Well done VT. There’s astounding developments on the ET front – I’m awaiting confirmation on one and hoping for good news on the other (which affects the whole universe).

  32. bvitbvit  December 10, 2014 at 6:26 am

    This is incredible work you all are doing and I’m proud to be associated with such people….even in a small way. If there’s anything I can do just ask.

  33. mary  December 10, 2014 at 5:06 am

    Gordon, no cnn, abc, nbc c-span mikes, no msm at all, you forgot to wait for them!!. How will the public ever see the “other side”..? I do also hope the people there know a lot of Americans agree with this talk.
