[ Editor’s Note NEO has been a wonderful partner with whom we have done some fabulous work. We had previously been weak in covering this region, due to lack of informed talent.

NEO added a lot of beef to VT’s geopolitical content via their large stable of academic and professional writing talent, a marriage made in heaven.

We don’t have the instant next day publishing that we enjoyed with Press TV, due to the delay of their getting the Russian translations done so both versions can be published at the same time, which delays things for several days.

But when something is special and timely, they have showed the flexibility to get them up quicker, as they did with Gordon’s latest NEO and my latest on the G-7 published today. Because this has been such a good relationship for both of us, it is a model that I am looking to replicate where the rare opportunity presents itself.

NEO was started with funding by Russia’s oldest academic foundation for Eastern Studies, the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, founded in 1818 in St. Petersburg. The core of their writers are alumni or doctoral candidates at Moscow State Institute of International Relations, which is a combination of our Harvard, Columbia and Georgetown Universities.

All of Russia’s top foreign affairs talent go there, as the main gateway into their diplomatic service. Lavrov is an alumnus, for example. And I don’t mind  saying that Russia does not suffer from the affirmation action disease. If you can’t make the grades and compete… too bad, with the result being that their best people end up in these important slots, as the competition for them is tremendous.

NEO chose to work with VT after following us for a while and seeing us for the unique platform that we are. Where most prospects would have shied away from affiliating with something with a complete US corporate media blackout on them, the NEO people saw that as a resume enhancer.

Such people do not grow on trees, and we look forward to a long relationship with them. We are developing different but analogous relationships with our Syrian colleagues whom we joined as founding members of their international counter terrorism association and will be returning to the next one this fall.

We are also planning to attend Iran’s second international conference for their Habilian Association, the 17,000 families of Iran’s terrorism victims on August 31st. Gordon and I are competing in their contest for the top ten research papers on terrorism where we are hoping to make a good showing.

If the nuclear talks are successful at the end of June, we will be arriving in Tehran at a pivotal time. One of the future projects I will be wanting to discuss with them is working with their veterans association for the Iran-Iraq war, where they suffered over a million casualties. There are countless stories waiting to be told there.

Pasargadae with text Aug31 and June

I will be proposing developing a revisionist history think tank to begin tearing down the false historical legacies that are still being used to prop up geopolitical psychological operations that are major security threats to us all, with Syria and Ukraine squarely on the table in front of us now.

I share this with you in detail, as our readers have contributed to our success. People like NEO noticed that we have a unique audience, something they wanted to replicate themselves in their own way. Our success has been your success, and we thank you for that… Jim and Gordon ]



–  First published  …  June 10,  2015 

I have been reading Uri Avnery for many years now, the old sage and liberal conscience of Israel. In his 91st year now, Uri started out as a fourteen-year-old courier for the Irgun, but left them when he was old enough to disapprove of their methods. He has been an active Zionist for 77 years.

When I began doing Heritage TV work in Atlanta I always enjoyed working with what I called the “golden oldies” talent — those who not only watched world events but participated in them. They were light years beyond the book knowledge crowd, because their whole lives had been a non-stop educational experience. Many had been WWII veterans who then went on to have incredible careers, but not always publicly known ones.

Uri has seen it all
Uri has seen it all

Uri became my expert in internal Israeli politics due to his vast experience. After serving and being wounded in the 1948 war, he went into journalism and migrated into the Knesset for ten years in 1965 when Ben Gurion was still in the game. And troublemaker he was, being assaulted on several occasions and seriously stabbed once.

The lock down in the American Press toward any criticism of Israel is so total that it includes never republishing anything from the Israeli media where Zionists fight tooth and nail constantly over everything imaginable with their hardball, take no prisoners politics.

As a long time opponent of the Israeli hard Right and Netanyahu Likuds, when I wanted to know what new outrages they were involved in, I would watch for Uri’s columns.

And so it was when Bibi finally bootstrapped another coalition together from Israel’s fractious multiparty system, the bad news from Uri came with the foreboding title, “Who can save Israel?”

To say it was a doom and gloom piece is an understatement. What Uri described was literally a coup against the dream of living in peace beside a Palestinian state. His first line was an executioner’s bullet, “The net result is that Israel has given up all pretense of desiring peace, and that Israeli democracy has suffered a blow from which it may never recover.”

He describes one of the biggest being the anticipated gutting of Israel’s Supreme Court, which has served as the protector of human rights in a territory with no constitution, and political parties that treat their opposition almost as Palestinians.

In the hard bargaining to save his new government, Bibi had to agree to letting the extreme right-winger Ayelet Shaked become minister of Justice, despite her plans to stuff the committee that appoints the judges with those loyal to the party.

Netanyahu will retain the Ministry of Communication for himself, so that he and his good buddy Sheldon Adelson can purge their opposition from all state media. Channel 10 is expected to close by the end of May.

And to make sure he has no trouble in the Foreign Ministry as he did with Lieberman, Bibi is going to keep that for himself, too. No, folks…I am not making this up. Welcome to “the only democracy in the Mid East”.

The Likuds have just copied a number from ISIL on beheading the opposition to eliminate it forever. Israel is now going to be ruled over by a gang of Zionist war lords, who will share the spoils among themselves and vanquish their enemies both in hearts and minds.

Nationalist-religious leader Naftali Bennett will see to the propaganda of the mind, as he will be the new Education Minister. He has already announced that Israeli kids will be schooled on how to grow up to be hard-core unrepentant Zionists who will disdain any thought of Palestinian rights.

And here this story takes a sad twist, because Uri has something in common with the political brutes he sees taking extended and profound control over Israel. He also is an unrepentant Zionist, but not like Bibi and his Likud buddies and the Arab-hating settlers. Uri has no regrets over what was done to the Palestinians to create the Jewish State.

He supports peace, but not the kind there might have been if the atheist, communistic self-described Hebrews who flooded into Palestine after WWII under the curious guise that “God gave us the land” had not shot their way in. My Neturei Karta friend, Rabbi Weiss and I recorded two hours of studio footage twelve years ago concerning some of the nasty things they did.

One mind blower was how the call went out for North Africa’s Jews to leave their home countries to move to Israel to help build the Zionist state, most were happy to stay where their families had lived for hundreds of years. The Zios would have none of that.

The Israelis sent Intel teams into these countries to foment anti-semitism campaigns and yes, even bombing synagogues to encourage Jews to emigrate. The tactic worked as intended. Some of those involved in the false flag campaigns, having regrets in their old age, shared what they had seen and done with these Neturei Karta Jews.

I have no bias towards early Zionists — whom I refer to as the cultural Zionists — those that just wanted to live in the Holy land and its history, but had no plans or desire to take it over by force, as those who came later did.

General Sir Edward Morgan, logistics planner for D-day who was later put in charge of the Displaced Persons (DP) camps, described in his book how the Zionists took over the camp administrations and ruled them with an iron fist.

They combed through the personnel files looking for people with war skills that would be needed in their planned war to throw the Arabs out, people like airplane mechanics. They were literally shanghaied out of the camps.

Steven Green’s book, Taking Sides, blew the doors off all the US classified material on US-Israeli relations, including the military Intel files. As the Mid East has become a geopolitical football, so it was at the beginning of the Cold War after WWII.

The Soviets wanted to get the British out of Palestine, so they supported the Zionists with rear area basing in Czechoslovakia, arms and funding.

These reports confirm that the Zionists had superiority over the Arab armies in a number of categories, including an air force. But this was always hidden to keep the donation money flowing. And last but not least, we learned that Ben Gurion hired Count Bernadotte’s assassin as his driver and bodyguard when he retired.

It was Churchill who coined the term that in war time, truth must be protected by a bodyguard of lies. He left out telling us that lies must be protected by even more lies. And so we struggle daily to dig out from under them.

We wish Uri good luck in his journey to understand the real heart of militant Zionism. The Israeli Left has been used as the “softer, gentler Zionism” — a smokescreen for them. I have had a long hard journey purging myself from such illusions. I pray that I will not still be doing it at age 91.

  1. Jim the think tank idea is great. Of coyrse it will get exposure and the more exposure allows It, the truth to get into our collective consciences. I try to help, as ive angered some of my circle of people as I speak out on all of the lies we have been told about Israel.I see at first disbelieve but I am seeingva change, now people are listening and I believe that will lead them to getting at the takes time to undo thousands of years of lies.I am concerned, as more exposure may lead them to nuking us, but truth has to be told. In my small world I stand by you . Thank you

  2. Is “Israel” worth saving ?
    Removing the 1948 land-grant erroneously named, Israel, is a thought.
    Removing Israeli agents, who pervade & control the leadership of the Western World, is another thought.

    • His predictions tend to be spot on. (Yellen got it). I think his success comes from cutting to the chase and not succumbing to the ever expanding ‘politically more acceptable’ terminology and torturous rationalizations for Jewish power. Also he has insider’s knowledge.

  3. My understanding is that there were a number of sleazy deals put together that set-up the establishment of Israel. Forgetting about those for a moment, Israel was to be established to show “How Good” a country could be, with all their geniuses, psychology experts, finance people, ….the best across the board. They were to set-the-example of how a great country could, would be, and how they could, would, live amongst others.” And beyond that, because of their unique suffering, they would never put others through the same suffering again.

    Instead,…. we got a cess-pit of monstrous proportions, from the beginning until NOW each year of Israel’s existence, is getting worse and violations against their follow Palestinian citizens, more obvious, cruel and disrespectful. Compliance, since the beginning has been absent, none of the rules followed, NO State Exists, because:

    They Never Agreed ON:

    Equal Rights For All Citizens

    Hope springs eternal, and cooperation is better than forced compliance.

  4. A revisionist history think tank – great proposal, it is obviously a scientific discipline (revisionist, or otherwise counter or cui bono history) with the least progress ever made, as i believe should include the basics of anthropology, and to what extent is knowing/solving problems useful for humanity as it is useful for covert activities. Since all the Ivy League social sciences breakthrough falls horribly behind hawks at Aspen or Hudson, or at Jinsa, or British OxBridge social research fails behind Chatham it is really a miserable attempt to endow them with billions since no progress has been made. It’s like the commoners and the elites are living two parallel histories and each of them is repeating and centrifugal while in their common history there is very little lever in between, very shallow understanding. “Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles
    I’m feeling very still
    And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
    Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows
    Ground Control to Major Tom
    Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong
    Can you hear me, Major Tom?”

  5. Israel must be wiped from the face of the earth if for no other reason than as retaliation for what the jew has done to the western dream. I was probably Israel’s staunchest defender on Open Salon, but always there was a fly in the soup. Jews down to the very last one of them always promoted what they called immigration and what should have been obvious to a duck even 5 years ago was an invasion by the most ignorant and barbaric hordes of illiterate savages on this side of the twentieth century, let alone the twenty-first. Any discussion then from what otherwise appeared to be intelligent people always brought the same talking point answers. I saw an agenda then, a collective agenda, shared by even the average jew in the street, to destroy this country and indeed European culture in general and this is coming from someone who was an avowed Marxist at the time. When I came to VT I had my eyes opened to what were the real issues that spawned WWII and who Hitler really was. Admittedly I had always liked Hitler and have read Mien Kampf cover to cover twice, but I always thought we were the good guys. I could not have been anymore wrong. Hitler was the real Savior and it was us who thwarted him. So maybe now we are getting what we deserve…

    • Now I drive down the street and for all intents and purposes I could be driving through any Central American backwater. Our city’s have been laid to waste. Black people and what used to be working class White people have no jobs, all given to the invaders who work for half of what is a living wage and send the money back to whatever sewer hole they crawled out of south of the border. This has prompted a mass exodus back into the southland by Blacks and incidents like we had in Ferguson last year. The blame for all of this can and should be placed squarely on the narrow shoulders of each and every Jew courtesy of the SPLC, the ADL and AIPAC, whom organized jewery never even made a token attempt to rein in. It was they who lobbied relentlessly to keep that southern border as porous as possible. Joel Stein and others apparently find it amusing that they control the media and therefore control the narrative so now I want to see how hard they laugh when I and every other American, who still has a few brain cells left after over a half century of exposure to jewish vulgarity and superficiality, get their hands around their scrawny necks…

    • Well THAT’S not mincing words! I tried to find a JFK quote I read about liking Hitler to post here, but in my ‘google’ search, all I came up with was ‘nah, he didn’t really mean that’ and ‘how embarrassing’ articles concerning JFK’s reputed admiration for Hitler. Surprise, surprise.

  6. To answer the question posed by your headline “is Israel worth saving?”
    No it’s not. Israel is the greatest cancerous scab on the back of mankind that has ever existed. It should have been pounded into the stone age following 9/11 which they did. In dealing with Israel its important to use the Japanese model. 1) Nuke two major Israeli citys. Tel Aviv and Haifa, will do. 2) Pound the landscape between Gaza and West bank with B-52s until there is no sign of life. 3) Israeli spies like Jacob and Nate Rothschild (and children), George Soros, Wolf Blitzer and Christianne Annampour (Today’s Tokyo Rose) should be rounded up, jailed, tatooed and sent to Gitmo for water boarding. Occupy Israel for 70 years until the land, which is really named Palestine can be taken out of the hands of International criminals and returned to its rightful semetic Palestinian owners.

  7. If rabbis could somehow press for indictement against Netanyahu being anti-semite, because the essence of imperial zionism is obviously anti-semitic considering the deeds and shadow it casts over affirmative and caring Jews. And to be on the other end of that story, after using it for quite a while now, Bibi’s surrounding might find revealing and sobering.

  8. The think tank idea is great-as a VT reader I am constantly exposed to new information (comments included) that are bunker busters for all the crap I have been fed from multiple sources for so long…but more amazing is the coherence of ALL the information people- globally need to know.
    I love NEO and found it via VT. They have a PDF button at the top of each article which is great for retrieval, printing and sending to others. And that helps spread the stuff that proverbially works to set us free…That act becomes a part of “something we CAN do” as the info demands action. Thanks for holdin the line guys.

    • Thanks Maggie, we are looking to duplicating this relationship in some other places as it has worked so well. The trick will be in finding the time. We are going to have to take a close look at time management as cutbacks have to be made in some areas to create time to work on others, like building up the radio as an example. These things take constant time.

    • “I will be proposing developing a revisionist history think tank to begin tearing down the false historical legacies…”

      Jim, I hope this could happen! But with NEO?– considering Russia’s new anti-revisionist laws that make it a crime to confront the official WW2 “historical memory” including criticism of Soviet and allied actions as well as the Nuremberg trial verdicts? This view has again been alluded to by Putin in his current visit to Italy, “Today, we hear some people say that there was no such thing as the holocaust…”

      Previously, he has stated this: “According to the materials of the Nuremberg trials, six million Jews were killed in Europe during the Holocaust… – burnt in furnaces or shot.…Such crimes do not and should not have a term of limitation. They can be neither forgiven nor forgotten. Any attempts to hush up these events, distort, ‘rewrite’ history are unacceptable and immoral.”–

  9. not just no but hell no izrahell is NOT worth saving! it was created by force with terrorism and has not done anything BUT terrorism ever since. it gets its annual welfare-warfare checks and weapons every year, billions and billions never repaid unless you count “Sampson Option” nuclear terrorism as friendly repayment maybe.. nuking other countries (911 inclusive!), and no matter HOW BLATANT its crimes against man and nature, it gets a free pass?!!

    they might have nuked the 2012 olympics with bombs there and ready, the guy who exposed a plot is in jail?! I hope the Earth opens and swallows it down whole, or maybe the Pompeii treatment, because normal justice sure isnt going to take care of it.
