Freedom Rider: “Sacred” Ground Zero

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

If American whites practiced what many of them preach to Muslims, they would ban themselves from building cultural institutions of any kind in much of the United States, since so many places are sites of depraved atrocities and mass killings of people of color by whites. Or, are only white folks’ “sensitivities” to be respected? Where is “hallowed ground” for descendants of Black slaves and Native Americans?

Freedom Rider: “Sacred” Ground Zero

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

Should white people have been forced to move away from the locations where they committed terrorist acts?”

The controversy generated by the so-called “ground zero mosque” is both illuminating and terrifying. In case there were any doubts, it proves that America is still a vast wasteland of ignorance created by racism and the belief that white Americans must be dominant and measured by standards that apply to no one else. If that were not the case, the planned construction of an Islamic cultural center would be a simple matter that is only of interest to those involved with the project.

There is nothing about the planned center that ought to create any opposition. The center is a project of the Cordoba Initiative, an effort to foster inter-faith and inter-group dialogue. The property has been legally sold, the project won the approval of a community board comprised of area residents, and has followed all relevant New York City regulations.

The level of vitriol directed at the Cordoba Initiative is but the latest example of white nationalism personified by the Tea Party movement, beliefs that president Obama is Muslim who wasn’t born in the United States, and a crusade to end birth right citizenship.

If opposition to the cultural center prevents it from being built, the demonization and marginalization of an entire religious group will have succeeded.

America is still a vast wasteland of ignorance created by racism.”

Arguments against the center focus on the role of “jihadists” in the September 11th attacks. We are told that opposition is justified because the attacks were carried out in the name of the Islamic faith. While the attackers were Muslims, their action was political in nature. Osama bin Laden and other al Qaeda leaders were quite clear. The attacks were a response to the Israeli and therefore American sponsored occupation of Palestine, and the presence of American troops in Saudi Arabia. In one of his many video messages, bin Laden says he wanted to attack Americans ever since the Israelis made one of many incursions into Lebanon in 1982.

It is easier to think of a religion foreign to most Americans as being the cause of terrorism rather than American actions themselves being responsible. The United States was hated enough in 2001 to inspire the terror attacks which took place before the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, the Israeli attacks on Lebanon in 2006 and Gaza in 2008, and the United States destruction of Somalia. That resentment has only deepened after the deaths of so many thousands of Muslims. Instead of vilifying people who want to build a cultural center which comes equipped with a Muslim prayer room, Americans would be better off acknowledging their government’s complicity in inciting that hatred.

The attacks were a response to the Israeli and therefore American sponsored occupation of Palestine, and the presence of American troops in Saudi Arabia.”

The closeted bigots have opened the doors, unafraid to publicly declare their hatreds. At a time when Mexican infants are derided as “anchor babies” who should have their rights of citizenship taken away, it shouldn’t be surprising that one section of Manhattan might be cordoned off to any Muslims because of an act committed by a few of their co-religionists.

If “ground zero” is as some say, sacred ground which can’t be violated by anyone who shares an affinity with the terrorists, then the same logic should be applied to the sites of other atrocities. Lower Manhattan is “ground zero” for the many acts of violence perpetrated against black people during the era of enslavement.

In 1991, workers building a federal courthouse in the same area as the disputed cultural center discovered the bones of 400 enslaved men, women and children. The African Burial Ground was used as the place of interment for black people in the 17th and 18th centuries. Even in death the enslaved were not accorded any respect, being buried outside of what were then the city limits.

In 1712 and 1741 slave insurrections and even rumors of slave insurrection caused both enslaved and free black New Yorkers to be hanged or burned to death. These events took place near what is now known as the September 11th ground zero. The terrorism inflicted on those people did not prevent their killers from building on grave sites and scenes of depraved violence. Should white people have been forced to move away from the locations where they committed terrorist acts? If so, there should be another debate. If the center’s opponents are correct, then only black people should be allowed to live in lower Manhattan.

White nationalism still rules.”

The spectacle created by this controversy is making for strange bedfellows. Democratic Governor David Paterson insists on meeting with Cordoba Initiative representatives to discuss a compromise location. They have refused. Former presidential candidate Howard Dean also thinks the center should be located elsewhere because, “There is no point in doing something that’s good if it is going to meet with resistance from a lot of folks.“ Meanwhile billionaire mayor Michael Bloomberg has been steadfast in expressing support for the center.

Let us not forget Barack Obama’s double talk on the issue. At a White House Ishtar celebration of Ramadan, the president at first asserted that the center should be built as planned. “I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country. And that includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in Lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances.” Less than 24 hours later he backtracked. “I was not commenting, and I will not comment, on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there.”

Marginalizing the “out” group, usually one of color, for political gain has a long tradition in America. Mosques have been opposed not just near the World Trade Center site, but in cities and towns all over the country. The battle over the so-called “ground zero mosque” is but the latest example. White nationalism still rules, this time in the guise of fighting “Islamists,” but never far below the surface.

Sign of the Rise on White Nationalism

Glen Ford @ BAR uses the term 'White Nationalism' to describe what so many hardcore FOX Noise [News] types say directly & indirectly when they rant & rave on these issues. Thus they say let's take our country back [from whom??? Not the Corp_Wall St Banksters' control of corrupt politicians.] Funny how they didn't say this during the Bush Regime's assault on the civil liberties & the 'Rule of Law' - only now during Obama's Admin. Or that the US was founded on Christian principles [not true- many / most of the so-called founding fathers weren't even 'traditional' Christians - but many were slave owners] even though it’s written in the Constitution 'Separation of Church & State' & forbids State operated Churches. So when they use this mythology one must suspect what they really mean is that the US is supposed to be a WASP [IE: for White, English Speaking Christians] nation [IE: White Nationalism]. Thus they attack all Islam & all Mosques as breeding grounds for terrorism; but Horrifically TERROR-ble Illegal Wars Based on Lies are called the 'War on Terrorism [Islam]'. They also seek to militarize the Mexican border & write laws that 'legally' mandate the police to racially profile Hispanics. Now they even want to repeal the 14th Amendment. And they can find- not just Democrat politricksters - but even some spot-lighted NEGROES to jump on their band wagon [We're all Americans- Till We say you're not]. Such NEGROES either have historical amnesia &/or are just political prostitutes. The 13th, 14th & 15th amendments were written to try & negate the constitutionally enshrined notion that Blacks [who were slaves at that time] were only 3/5s of a Human Being & the dreadful Dread Scott ruling that Blacks had no rights that Whites had to respect. The AZ law mandates police to do the kind of racial profiling that Blacks & Browns have been assaulted / insulted w every day for decades across the US. Corp sell-out politicians both DEMs & GOPs [IE: Reagan, the Bushes, Slick Willie] had Corp 'friendly' policies that attacked Organized Labor, suppressed wages, shipped jobs overseas [NAFTA, GATT], while destroying the agricultural sector & Economies of countries like Mexico & Haiti, leading to an increase of easily exploitable immigrant labor. But the reaction of the WASPs is not to change / repeal NAFTA, GATT, WTO, IMF, etc; but to change / repeal the 14th amendment & to demand that the US Gov pay Mercenaries [IE: Blackwater whose owner Erik Prince says he's a {'white'} Christian Crusader] to militarize [terrorize] the Mexicans at border. Further the first time I [like many Blacks my age] heard of Islam was via the NOI from which came such notables of the Black Freedom Struggle as: Elijah Muhammed, Malcolm X, Minister Farrakhan, & Muhammad Ali. And sports legends like: Kareem Abdul Jabar, Ahkeem Olajuwan, & Ahmad Rashad, etc were Muslims. Any so-called Black who eagerly joins up w FOX Noise Types in their WASP rantings- is either a fool &/or a SELLOUT.
AND… If the 911-Truthers are even half right that - 19 Muslim guys w box-cutters [most of whom shouldn’t have even been able to get in &/or stay in the US in the first place & half of them shouldn’t have been able to get on those planes that day] successfully outwitted a Trillion-$ defence_security_intelligence network while being directed by a Muslim ‘Phantom Menace’ in an Afghan cave who was hooked-up to a dialysis machine – just doesn’t make a lot of sense & there’s probably more to this story… Then blaming (all) Muslims for the 9-11 attacks may be totally off target.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism Debunked

The two essays below pretty much sums it up. Funny how Americans think their blood is so precious and others so meaningless. The US commits "9/11s" every year, a new country, a new region, a new tribe and new ethnic group, over and over again for the last 400+ years. But none of that counts. Iraq is such a "success" and we'll need to look back in "10 years" but what about NOW! What about the dead, wounded and mained, the homeless (5 million dispersed), the pollution, the cancer rates matching Hiroshima? None of that matters to "Exceptional Americans." American Exceptionalism is the root and branch of racism.

We Are Not Special, and There Is No Happy Ending: The Blood-Drenched Darkness of American Exceptionalism


Such is the limitless power of delusion on this scale: a blood-drenched tragedy of world-historical proportion becomes "an extraordinary achievement," and a criminal war of aggression is transmuted by the alchemy of cultural myth-making into a "success." This is the evil to be found at the rotted heart of the myth: whatever the United States does, it will lead to good and only to good."

"If you have ever wondered how a serial murderer -- a murderer who is sane and fully aware of the acts he has committed -- can remain steadfastly convinced of his own moral superiority and show not even the slightest glimmer of remorse, you should not wonder any longer.

The United States government is such a murderer. It conducts its murders in full view of the entire world. It even boasts of them. Our government, and all our leading commentators, still maintain that the end justifies the means -- and that even the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of innocents is of no moral consequence, provided a sufficient number of people can delude themselves into believing the final result is a "success."


"We can appeal all we want to "American exceptionalism," but any "exceptionalism" that remains ours is that of a mass murderer without a soul, and without a conscience. ... It is useless to appeal to any "American" sense of morality: we have none. It does not matter how immense the pile of corpses grows: we will not surrender or even question our delusion that we are right, and that nothing we do can be profoundly, unforgivably wrong."

There you have it. Spiritually, there is nothing "sacred" about "Ground Zero" in fact isn't it anathema to any notion of spirituality? It reminds me of people who don't want to be cremated, who want to be buried "whole" with their Sunday Best to boot. How silly and narrow minded and nonspiritual. My soul is bound to no real estate.

The American Morality Myth

by Bill Noxid / August 25th, 2010


In the last ten years this country (or the corporate slavers) has committed more crimes against Man, God, and Planet than is still possible to conceive, yet what ‘seems’ to be most Americans are content to pretend none of it happened. Granted, a good portion of that ‘appearance’ is due to corporate control of media and mis-education from diversionary propaganda, but there is no shortage of examples of good old fashioned ignorance and denial."

What made America, America, was genocide, slavery, theft, and deception. You may not like our history, but it doesn’t change the reality of it. Every time the President (or anyone else) proclaims “This is America” like it places us above reproach, it demonstrates the pathological denial that he and this country suffer from. Until you face the truth of this country’s origin and modus operandi, whatever you believe in is based on a Disneyland fraud. If that seems harsh, it’s your own fault for spending 500 years in denial."

"Based on this country’s historical record, the evidence of the resulting state of humanity and the planet, and the magnification of the behavior exhibited over the last ten years, neither this country nor this religion can feign moral superiority (or even perspective) on any matter at all until it faces the incalculable mountain of deception and fraud upon which its empire was built. "

By the way.....dem Arabs look Black??!!

Would someone, preferably from the Right Wing, Islamophobia crowd, please explain to me what crimes against the US did Muslims commit before "9/11?" What proof is/was there that a "seditious" group of Muslims living in America, working incognito and through "think tanks," the "media" and newspapers preaching the destruction of America?

How many Muslims were prosecuted for spying on America or for committing acts of "domestic terrorism," prior to "9/11?" Do the bigots have any idea how many Muslims live in the United States?

Clearly about 5 million Muslims lived in this country peacefully, in fact, INVISIBLY before 9/11. Christians committed 10X more acts of domestic terrorism than Muslims prior to 9/11, or after for that matter. The fact of the matter is Muslims were before the 9/11 False Flag amongst THE MOST peaceful, law-abiding citizens in this country and still are. Crackers by and large didn't even know they exist. Now all of a sudden they're a "threat?" Who the fuck isn't a threat to cowardly Whites? (if you're not one of them, and the video shows some aren't) you won't be offended by the truth.

Let's not forget that the attack on Muslims is also an attack on African Americans who comprise nearly 25% of the Muslim population in the US.

Some of us have said it a million times: don't think that discrimination against Mexicans or Muslims exempts discrimination against Blacks. It's only a matter of time that the bigots set their full scope on us. Check out this video if you don't believe me. Brother wasn't even Muslim!!!
A picture (with sound) is worth a thousand words. Glenn Greenwald sets it up as follows:

The episode in the video begins when, as John Cole put it, "some black guy made the mistake of looking Muslimish and was harassed and nearly assaulted by the collection of lily white mouth-breathers at the event . . . At about 25 seconds in, he quite astutely points out to the crowd that 'All y'all dumb motherfuckers don’t even know my opinion on shit'." As this African-American citizen (whom the videographer claims is a union carpenter who works at Ground Zero) is instructed to leave by what appears to be some sort of security or law enforcement official, the crowd proceeds to yell: "he musta voted for Obama," "Mohammed's a pig," and other assorted charming anti-mosque slogans. I really encourage everyone to watch this to see the toxicity this campaign has unleashed."

The attack on Islam and/or Muslims is also fueled by Zionists and Neocon propagandists who want to "soften up" the American attitude as it relates to a potential attack on Iran. It's all by design. To get the sheeple to accept a nuclear attack on Iran which is the only military option the US and Israel have because asymmetric warfare will kick their collective asses.

Welcome to America! Land of the bigot, home of the coward. These bitches are scared and hateful toward anything non-White that doesn't adopt their twisted and chickenshit worldview, that's the bottom line. White Nationalists on the rise.

Ground Zero Mosque Hoax

Great argument to counter the racist ignorant, but it lacks one important component. It repeats the lie that Muslims did 911. For those who still believe the lie, please talk to the families of 911 victims and see for yourself if they believe the official story. This is not a marginal subject that we can compromise in favor of an alternative argument. There was not a single piece of evidence recovered to support the historic lie of 911 and yet the Muslims without distinction must carry the liability forever. This is totally outrageous and unacceptable. I am a Muslim and I want to know the truth about 911. If someone can convince me that Muslims did it, then I want to be in the front line looking for the ones who did it to bring them to justice. So far we have an official story that lacks consistency, truth, evidence, and seriousness of investigation. Best we can say, it is only a theory and any theory needs proof. So far all evidence shows that who spread the theory had a substantial fare in the "war on terror," which I call war on justice and liberty. We needed a pretext to go to war to get the oil, pipeline, and profit the private contractors who rule our nation. That's it and no more. So we got it. Why make all Muslims liable for a lie that many non-Muslims do not even believe? Please amend your argument to reflect this fact. Bin Laden was never wanted for 911 according to the FBI most wanted. He was wanted for other bombings! WHY? Because there was no evidence to link Bin Laden to 911. This is not a defense of Bin Laden. This is a fact anyone can check out on the FBI website for the most wanted. Bin Laden has been dead since December of 2001 according to the assassinated Benazir Boto and we still see videos of Bin Laden making threats and antagonist statements against us. What is this madness? Please do not insult our intelligence. We are so sick of it.

Bin Laden is CIA invention and hoax

Pssst.. Truthseeker62, the gummint says it's still looking for Bin Laden!! Shock and awe.

Clinton says he's in Pakistan, Petraeus says he's "still a priority," McChrystal said we want to capture him alive, what the fuck is it? Is the "Smart Power" group not so smart, are they confused?

The CIA created Al Qaeda ,and Bin Laden (if alive), is probably still on the payroll. Maybe he's tucked away in the mountains, not Af-Pak, but somewhere here in the US, along with alien body parts? But no rational person believes he's alive. I mean, after all, if "I" were Bin Laden I would be talking shit and crowing my successes to high heaven, I'd be producing a propaganda video a week, whether it's the US polling numbers showing declining (60%) support for the war in Afghanistan, or Wikileaks revelations of US war crimes, or boasting about how we've infiltrated the Afghan "Security" Forces, and last but not least how "my" prediction that Al Qaeda would bait the US would bankrupt itself is becoming my greatest "prophesy." Ain't no way a shit talker like Bin Laden is lying low. The propaganda available is far to juicy to sit on. Few have been more accurate about how the phony WOT would unfold than Bin Laden, except of course the Pentagon, Military, Media, Congressional Complex of Long War enthusiasts. Because it's going to take a looonng time to steal all of the Muslim countries resources.

As for the truth about 9/11? Puhleez, don't expect Zionist controlled media to delve into that. Once again, after spending billions upon billions, year in year out, trillions over decades on maintaining "air supremacy" the US is incapable of intercepting hi-jacked jet liners and/or shooting them down? Let's see, the F-15's top speed is 1500 mph, a Boeing's 747 top speed, 640 mph.

Yet, we're suppose to buy our ability to strike Iran? Come on, what the fuck is it? Capability or not? I won't even get into Israeli knowledge if not involvement in 9/11, that would require an encyclopedia.

(check out the legal memo by Gerald Shea)

What I would humbly suggest is that Muslims better fight back against this Mosque propaganda and join others in demanding the truth about 9/11. No longer will you be able to navigate America under the radar. Don't expect the bigots to leave you alone as they did for decades (you were invisible to them before 9/11 a la Ralph Ellison's "Invisible Man."). More Muslims better speak out or you might find yourselves in internment camps. I'm serious. The Zionists and the Neocons and Neo-Liberals are preparing Americans for a Muslim onslaught, that's what the Mosque Hoopla is all about. It's to make a war on Iran, Somalia, or continued warfare against a Muslim country more acceptable. It's intended to shape the "shit for brains" mind of the average American dumbfuck. And don't sit back waiting for cowardly "Civil Rights" leaders to fight with you. You might be on your own.

Funny how despite all of our technology, our death squads combing the globe, our vaunted intelligence apparatus that includes thousands of private security firms on government payroll, our wonderful drones, we can't kill or capture Bin Laden (or shall I say, Bin Laden's ghost LOL)??

p.s. The Gummint says there only a few hundred Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, so what gives? Tell me this is not a naked war of aggression against Islam, a madman dash to steal or control their resources??

Who is exporting terrorism?

Leaked CIA memo cites U.S. Jews among exporters of terrorism

Wikileaks releases a CIA memo titled 'What if Foreigners See the United States as an Exporter of Terrorism?' in which American Jews in Israel was one of four groups mentioned."

p.s. Who Killed Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri??

"Among the political parties penetrated by Israeli intelligence is the Future Movement of Prime Minister Saad Hariri, the son of the former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, who was assassinated by a car bomb in Beirut in 2005. The UN Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) is expected very soon to charge Lebanon's Hezbollah with the assassination. However, Hezbollah leader Hasan Nasrallah recently announced the group had video evidence from Israeli drones that showed the Israeli Defense Force was tracking Hariri before his assassination."

So, the IDF was tracking Hariri BEFORE his assassination? Mmmmm... sound familiar???

More from the article: "According to WMR's sources in Lebanon, one network that Israel and the United States can rely on to support the UN after the expected indictment of Hezbollah for Hariri's assassination is a Sunni network in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon. It includes a member of the same family as Ziad al-Jarrah, one of the alleged United flight 93 hijackers on September 11, 2001.

"Lebanese intelligence has linked the Ziad al-Jarrah, who hailed from the Bekaa Valley, to a Saudi-supported Salafist network that includes "Al-Qaeda" associates that will be used to target Shi'as throughout Lebanon in the wake of the Bellemare charges against Hezbollah. Lebanese intelligence discovered that members of this same Mossad-supported Salafist/Al Qaeda network also targeted top Shi'a leaders in Iraq. WMR has learned that Ziad al-Jarrah was used by the Mossad, the CIA, and Saudi intelligence as a "patsy" in the 9/11 conspiracy, just as similar "patsies" are being used in Iraq and elsewhere to help keep the myth of "Al Qaeda" and Osama bin Laden alive."

It's a one, two punch

...right cross by the US oligarchs, kick in the groin by the Israelis.

I just took a few minutes to peep the Al Qaeda doesn't exist link, didn't get through it all, but in one minute in I was struck. Not because of the "revelation" because anyone with half a brain and not drunk of American Exceptionalism KNEW WE CREATED A.Q. They were Carter's and Raygun's wonderful "Freedom Fighters." (Notice the shoulder-fired missiles as they are about to be trained on US troops, but all is fair in love and war, right?).

No. What "struck" me was the affirmation not revelation that the US Media is a propagandist's wet dream, that our "political dialogue" is wrapped around lies. We know the facts in this video to be the undisputed truth, as Chris Floyd says, we brag about crimes, and yet no MSM outlet will delve into this issue instead they push the Right Wing counterattack that the Iman of the "NY Mosque" said that America was partly responsible for 9/11."

Well what the fuck you dumb ass rubes think??? Are you so blinded by your bullshit American Exceptionalism, blinded by spiritual ignorance that you ignore laws of karma or physics for that matter: for every action there is a reaction. Is it "Left Wing" conspiracy when the 9/11 Commission's and the CIA's own conclusions are that 9/11 was a function of "blowback?"

The stunning ignorance, no, HOSTILITY to logic and facts speaks to a deeper depravity.

"The Iman blames America!" Well what do you know. These nitwits could see video of Zbig in the trenches with the illustrious "Freedom Fighters" or engaged in hand to hand combat with the Russians and STILL not believe it. It's Alice in Wonderland yall. Welcome to the Delusional States of America.

Boy how I wish, I really wish some wealthy Muslim or supporter of Islam could buy up a "Times Square Marquee" or Television time, and show this video during the loud mouth protests. The response and reactions of the protesters would be PRICELESS. Comedy no doubt as they twist their little minds around little words, worn out phrases and homilies.

Of course, for some, if not most, it might not make a difference, they are heartless, soulless and mindless sociopaths. The truth means little to sociopaths and scared little bigots.

But you can't twist the words and the pictures. In the realm of law and institutional fact-finding we'd call this: "Best Evidence." Now we know why the next assault by the Elites and Zionists will be the internet and the free exchange of information and ideals. The Israeli representative in the Senate, Mr. Lieberman, after all is asking for the "kill switch."

p.s. Here's the REALLY funny part. Guess who controls the "US intelligence SIGINT hardware and software"?? Well you get a free trip to Gitmo kiddies, it's the Israelis.

"The former deputy director of counterintelligence at FBI, Harry B. Brandon, last year told Congressional Quarterly magazine that “the Israelis are interested in commercial as much as military secrets. They have a muscular technology sector themselves.” According to CQ, “One effective espionage tool is forming joint partnerships with U.S. companies to supply software and other technology products to U.S. government agencies.”

Another Excerpt:

Much less has been reported about the high-tech Israeli wiretapping firms that service US telecommunications companies, primarily AT&T and Verizon, whose networks serve as the chief conduits for NSA surveillance. Even less is known about the links between those Israeli companies and the Israeli intelligence services. But what Bamford suggests in his book accords with the history of Israeli spying in the US: Through joint partnerships with US telecoms, Israel may be a shadow arm of surveillance among the tentacles of the NSA. In other words, when the NSA violates constitutional protections against unlawful search and seizure to vacuum up the contents of your telephone conversations and e-mail traffic, the Israeli intelligence services may be gathering it up too – a kind of mirror tap that is effectively a two-government-in-one violation."

9/11 transparently a false flag attack

I love Black Agenda Report but I must point out that you aren't doing us any favors by repeating the official myth of 9/11 having been carried out by "nineteen Muslims with boxcutters". Please Ms. Kimberly, please take an afternoon to look into the details of the 9/11 events and an intelligent lady like yourself will see very quickly that the official myth has more holes than a colander, is provably impossible and by extension the ones forcing this impossible myth upon us are the ones responsible. Unraveling 9/11 will literally cut the legs out from under the entire right-wing corporate "American exceptionalist" worldview.

A Den of Thieves

Check out Kucinich's latest assessment of Afghanistan. About time we heard the truth from an elected official:

Kucinich: Afghanistan is ‘spy versus spy carnival of corruption’

"We are paying all sides to fight all sides and to betray all sides," Kucinich charged in a statement released on Wednesday. "This is further evidence that the United States must remove all its troops and assets out of Afghanistan."

"The tragedy is rapidly becoming a farce," he added. "They call it intelligence, but it is actually an innovative way to steal tens of billions of dollars from the U.S. taxpayers."

The Times story had reported that the chief of administration in Afghan President Hamid Karzai's national security council, who is currently "at the center of a politically sensitive corruption investigation," has apparently been on the CIA payroll for many years."

In addition to the 9/11 cover-up, a huge cover-up, sorely lacking MSM coverage is the Sibel Edmonds story. Check out Ms. Edmond's stories, her court deposition given under oath, and articles and essays that accompany.

If you read it there's only one conclusion you can reach. It's clear that the United States and its elected officials, often aided and abetted by Israeli spies are the biggest proliferators of weapons of mass destruction in the world, the biggest terrorist organization in the world, and a mafiosa unlike no other. Edmonds will open your eyes if you ain't afraid to look:

HA. And every other day we have to listen to some "capo" of the US Mafia (our Congress and Administration) talk about "Karzai needs to clean up his act." Get a load of these pathetic, hypocrites.

Americans have to be the dumbest most delusional people on the planet. Too much prescrption drugs and American Idol. HA

Don't worry, Obama has acute Muslim sensitivity

The Taste of Hope and Change: Progressive Sensitivity in U.S. Concentration Camp
Written by Chris Floyd
Thursday, 26 August 2010 00:15

Never, ever let it be said that the Peacer Laureate's administration is not one of progressivistic enlightenment. I mean, just look at the sensitivity being displayed by the Obama administration toward its captives in its Guantanamo concentration camp. The Miami Herald reports:

"Here's a new twist in the U.S. military's Islamic sensitivity effort in the prison camps for suspected terrorists at the Guantánamo Bay Navy base: Military medical staff are force-feeding a secret number of prisoners on hunger strike between dusk and dawn during the Muslim fasting holiday of Ramadan.

The prison camps spokesman, Navy Cmdr. Bradley Fagan: ... "Detainees who are fasting get their meals before dawn,'' he said Wednesday, disclosing only the hours of that day's feeding "in observance of the Ramadan schedule'' -- before 5:26 a.m. and after 7:28 p.m."

Bon Appetite!

Clearing up 911 Myths and Propaganda

Miss Kimberley,
I truly love reading your hard hitting articles everytime you post them,but as a 911 researcher
for 7 years now i must agree with Brutal Truth,
nfamous,and Truth Seeker62 on bits of the 'offical version" peppering this article.First,Miss Kimberley,
did you know,on the Offical FBI website Bin Laden is NOT Wanted for 911! The FBI confirmed in a recent statement (July 2006) that "The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on the Usama Bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because "the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11" . Folks are speechless when
they read that. On top of that there in NO EVIDENCE
that Muslims hijacked planes on 911!
Those harping about muslim terrorist can only harp
as they dont have a shred of factual evidence supporting their claims.So yes,the Ground Zero Hoax,
is just that....another distraction from the Truth about the False Flag Attack known as 9/11.

America's Holy Crusade against the Muslim World

by Michel Chossudovsky

"Since the early 1980s, Washington has covertly supported the most conservative and fundamentalist factions of Islam, largely with a view to weakening secular, nationalist and progressive movements in the Middle East and Central Asia. Known and documented, the fundamentalist Wahhabi and Salafi missions from Saudi Arabia, dispatched not only to Afghanistan but also to the Balkans and to the Muslim republics of the former Soviet republics were covertly supported by US intelligence. (Ibid) What is often referred to as "Political Islam" is in large part a creation of the US intelligence apparatus (with the support of Britain's MI6 and Israel's Mossad)."

"The rising tide of xenophobia, sparked by the proposed Ground Zero mosque and community center, has all the appearances of a PSYOP (Psychological Operation) which contributes to fomenting hatred against Muslims throughout the Western World.

The objective is to instil fear, rouse and harness citizens' unbending support for the next stage of America's "long war", which consists in waging "humanitarian" aerial attacks on the Islamic Republic of Iran, portrayed by the media as endorsing the terrorists."

"While "all Muslim are not terrorists", all terrorist attacks (planned or realized) are reported by the media as being perpetrated by Muslims."

"In America, the Muslim community as a whole is being targeted. Islam is described as a "religion of war". The proposed mosque and community center are being heralded as "violating the sanctity of Ground Zero".

Sacred Ground Zero or Zero Common Sense

Thanks Ms Kimberly for your insightful article. First let’s get the language straight. It is a community center NOT a mosque. The media whores have used that description, so the tea party crowd will have responded right on que like Pavlovian subjects. Here is Keith Olbermann to make it plain for those who are still confused. Yes the proposed site will house a basketball court a culinary school and a pray space. It is NOT a mosque. But some of our less enlighten folk have bit on the mosque phraseology trick-a-ration and have went over the cliff with it. You can hear them now “they will be cookin up some jihad in that there cookin school I betcha” or “they will be teaching how to do a fast break drive by on that there basketball court I betcha”!!! LOL I don’t know what kind of kool-aide they been drinking but I don’t want any of it.

According to the Olbermann’s comment you can’t even see the building that is going to house the community center from the 9/11 site nor can you see the 9/11 site from the community center site. You won’t even know it is in the area unless you purposely walk to it. So why are they raising so much hell about this place???

Then you have that historical scholar Newt Gingrich yammering about the former name of the place (It pains me every time I hear this bozo speak). It was going to be named Cordoba house but according to Newt the Cordoba name makes some reference to the Muslim conquest of Europe. And of course it is a slap in the face to the 9/11 victims/survivors that a Mosque be put so close to the 9/11 site.

Anybody heard about the “Moors”??? These were Black folks from Africa that conquered Iberian Peninsula Portugal Spain and southern France. They were the remnant of civilization on the European continent while the Europeans stumbled through the Dark Ages. They were the dynamic influence in Portugal Spain for about 900 years. The knowledge base that the Europeans gained when they finally vanquished the Moors was the spark for the Renaissance Period. You think that maybe these are the Muslim Conquerors that Newt is referring too (things that make you want to go Hummmmm)??? And yes the Moors were Muslim. If you want to know more go here or here or here

Then there is the mangled logic of 9/11. I have nothing but the deepest respect and heart felt sympathy for those who suffered in or from that tragic event. Having said that I am still wondering how a small bunch of people hold up in caves in Afghanistan had the know how the logistical/communication technical skills and we aren’t even going to talk about MONEY to orchestrate a 9/11 from the caves in Afghanistan no less (things that REALLY make you want to go Hmmmmm)!!!! Seems to me that only nation states have that kind of capability

How is it that three buildings would collapse onto their own footprints (falling at freefall speeds) within hours of each other and one building wasn’t even hit by a jet aircraft??? The two that hit were designed and engineered to withstand a jet aircraft impact but still collapsed. I’m no engineer but I do understand basic physics buildings are not built to collapse like that without help (IE controlled demolition). Go here and see for yourself what really happened on 9/11 call me crazy but smells like an inside job to me (Thanks Project for a New American Century I guess this is the New Pearl Harbor you were talking about).

Oh by the way why are nine of the supposed hijackers STILL ALIVE??? Look here and see Sounds like someone has been stealing identities!!! And who do we know that has been busted stealing identities lately Look Here and see Connected any dots yet???

This whole mosque charade is another scare the hell out of white people act that we have seen before. Let Rachel Maddow tell you about it, . The divide and conquer scare the hell out of white people game is still working for the Rich oligarchy. It is utterly amazing how fearful white folks can be made to feel by the very folks they aspire to be like (White Rich and Powerful). Seems like common sense has left this nation and we are now living in the era of dumb dumber and stuck on S-T-U-P-I-D!!!


S Murph

I'll see you one and raise you two....

SO WHAT IF IT IS A MOSQUE??? There is nothing "sacred" about "Ground Zero." Period. A horrible crime to be sure, but perpetrated by whom? Who stood to benefit from a "New Pearl Harbor?" Why the architects of the phony WOT, the Zionists and Neocons.

I hate to revert back to the tired and worn, "is the tail wagging the dog" analysis. But the fact of the matter to me is when you consider that money and the corruption, blackmail and influence that it buys is THE most important factor in politics, our bought and paid for political system, you have to consider the monetary influence of wealthy Jews, most of whom are Zionists. People like the owner of the LA Times or the Koch Bros. or Obama's financial posse/benefactors in Chicago, the Pritzkers. The reason for the inordinate influence of Zionism on our domestic and foreign policies is the shit load of cash the Zionists spend on think tanks, "study groups," "research," buying and shaping of public opinion, and their media stranglehold, and buying elections and elected officials. Aside from Christian Zionism, money is the only explanation for the inordinate Zionist influence on our body politic.

Secondly, who needs Israel? I'm not arguing for their destruction I'm talking economics. What do we import from Israel besides their fascist tendencies and their communications experts who rig our signals communications with their spy ware? I wonder whether its the Russians or the Israelis who has spied on America more? But my point is what RAW materials does Israel export to us that are essential to US industries? And even if there is a commodity or two we get from Israel, do they outweigh our need for oil, oil byproducts or other precious minerals like cobalt that are essential to our high tech industries that we obtain from other nations? So you see, unless someone can muster the facts to the contrary, there is little cost/benefit obtained from Israel in comparison to costs/benefits of maintaining relations with other countries/nations. Therefore, when you are confronted with this truth, it begs the question, why the unbalanced influence of the Israeli Lobby?

Americans only have sensitivity for themselves. It's okay for them to build churches and to flood countries with missionaries (many of whom are working for the CIA and hence Imperialism). Interesting how the colonial mindset has always been to raze the temples, places of worship of the conquered peoples and build their churches and cathedrals on top of the ruins. What about "that" sensitivity?

Americans are petulant, fraudulent, scared little nitwits. I often wonder why they are so fearful, so afraid of their shadows, and I've come to at least one conclusion: they are afraid of "blow-back" or revenge because they realize, in the midst of the phony proclamations and platitudes, they've fucked another nation over pretty good. They have a sense of karma but believe in the material vs. the spiritual world and thus brute force will overcome karma. (It won't) It's more than a sense of entitlement built on the cesspool of American Exceptionlism, it also boils down to the fact that Americans are scared little bitches when it comes to the "other" and they assume that everyone is a vengeful as they are. (They're not)

The Muslims and Nations practicing Islam were virtually invisible prior to 9/11, non existent in the minds of scary Americans. As long as Americans could get their cheap oil and hence cheap gas they are fine with their invisibility. The only Muslim country they could name would be Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Now all of a sudden Muslims are some existential threat? Puhleeze, the stupidity is only matched by the cowardice.

Last, the Israelis supported Iran, (who is now their phony existential threat), during Iran's war with Iraq. The Americans started Iran's nuclear program under Eisenhower when they overthrew the democratically elected Mosadegh and installed the Shah. But how many brain dead Americans know this? And, even if they did, would it matter, would it change their twisted and perverted world view? Sadly, "No." Because fear will always prevail over logic.

So what if it is a Mosque, a unique and singular place of worship and not a community center? The "facts on the ground" demonstrate conclusively that Muslims in America have been more ideal citizens and lived more peaceably with their fellow Americans than Christians could ever dream of. Much of the destruction of the political discourse and policy making abilities in this country, not to mention warmongering, are due to Christians.

I know not all Christians are assholes and fascists, and nitwits but yall know what I'm talking about. Too bad, when the White Nationalists hijacked Christianity somebody should have spoke up. Oh well, I hope those faith-based grants were worth the price of silence.

p.s. In case you didn't get Murphs insights, Western Civilization wouldn't exist without the influence of Muslim Civilization. Didn't any of you so-called educated nitwits pick that up in Western Civilization classes your freshmen year of college? Do the rocket scientists know that almost 1/3 of Spanish is derived from Arabic? Or maybe I shouldn't say that, maybe the bigots and nitwits will conclude that the Mexicans, the "illegals," are closet Muslims like Obama. LOL


Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran, and the U.S.



"....This incident, from Trita Parsi’s book Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran, and the U.S., reveals a great deal about the triangular Israeli–American–Iranian relationship, but also about the book itself. While geopolitical realists may cite the maxim (variously ascribed to Talleyrand, Disraeli, de Gaulle, Kissinger, and others) that nations “have no friends, only interests”, Treacherous Alliance is replete with metaphors of abandonment, betrayal and treachery that one might associate more with the sour aftertaste of curdled camaraderie, or the acrid ashes of a burned-out love affair, than with the vicissitudes and vagaries of shifting political alliances in the realist mode. “We had very deep relations with Iran, cutting deep into the fabric of the two peoples,” David Kimche, head of Israel’s Foreign Ministry at the time of the Islamic Revolution, lamented to Parsi. “It was very difficult for people to accept the fact that all this intimacy was thrown out the window” (p. 91).

“Intimacy” may seem like an odd word to describe the two decades of co-operation between Savak and Mossad. In 1957, Israel and Iran entered into what Parsi calls “a not so secret marriage of convenience” (p. 25), although the intercourse between Israeli personnel and their Iranian counterparts remained unofficial, and Israel’s status in the alliance was more like that of a clandestine mistress than of a wedded wife. The intimacy consisted largely of “sensitive” dealings, of whose details, Parsi says, even the Shah’s own Foreign Ministry was told little or nothing:

Iranian military and secret police operatives were secretly trained by Israeli intelligence officers in both Iran and Israel. Israel also trained four hundred Iranian pilots, paratroopers, and artillery men and sold Iran high-tech military equipment. According to one former Iranian ambassador, the Mossad also trained the Savak in torture and investigative techniques as well. (P. 26)

Much of this is familiar to anyone who has studied the Israeli–Iranian relationship during the era of the Shah. What is unique is the way that Parsi strives to raise the epistemological status of such assertions above the level of rumour and innuendo by interviewing diplomats and decision-makers from all sides.

The result is a lively, readable and meticulously documented account of more than five decades of diplomatic decision-making, based on 130 personal interviews Parsi conducted with Iranian, Israeli and American analysts. Parsi’s source for Mossad’s training Savak in torture is an unidentified former Iranian ambassador under the Shah, whom he interviewed in April 2004, and whose claim is categorically denied by Mossad’s Tsafrir in a Tel Aviv interview six months later.

Parsi ably demonstrates that long before the Islamic Revolution in 1979, the Israeli–Iranian relationship was far from idyllic. What Sohrab Sobhani calls a “pragmatic entente”3 and Parsi “a marriage of convenience” was, from the Shah’s point of view, merely a furtive temporary marriage, valid only until he could court the Arab states, above all Egypt, and gain their support for his hegemonic aspirations. Parsi notes that during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the Shah saw Iranian interests as best served if neither Israel nor its Arab foes emerged from the war with an unqualified victory that could block Iran’s steady path towards regional primacy. Iran continued to sell oil to Israel during the war and provided the Israeli Defence Forces with arms, but the Shah also sold oil to Egypt and assisted the Soviet Union in supplying Iraq with weapons through Iranian airspace. This created a basis for vastly improving post-war relations between Iran and Egypt, which was viewed by Israelis as a betrayal of the “natural” Israeli–Iranian alliance against Arab states.

Iran played an active role in the negotiations between Israel and Egypt in the aftermath of the Yom Kippur War. The Shah supported Egypt’s demand that Israel return all occupied territories to their pre-1967 status, and criticised “the Israeli strategy of seeking security through the conquest of territory” (p. 51). In 1974, Iran and Egypt introduced the United Nations resolution that called for a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East, a move clearly directed at Israel’s clandestine nuclear programme. The following year, just months after the Shah had signed the Algiers accord with Iraq, Iran, after some apparent vacillation over which position best served Iranian interests, voted in favour of the “Zionism equals racism” resolution at the United Nations."


If “ground zero” is as some say, sacred ground which can’t be violated by anyone who shares an affinity with the terrorists, then the same logic should be applied to the sites of other atrocities.High quality swiss replica watches sells at low price! Maybe the author said the key right thing , The US people actually stand by the Muslims,So many Muslims cultural buliding are settling down arround them.

State and Local Bases of Zionist Power in America

by James Petras,

Any serious effort to understand the extraordinary influence of the Zionist power configuration over US foreign policy must examine the presence of key operatives in strategic positions in the government and the activities of local Zionist organizations affiliated with mainstream Jewish organizations and religious orders.

There are at least 52 major American Jewish organizations actively engaged in promoting Israel’s foreign policy, economic and technological agenda in the US (see the appendix). The grassroots membership ranges from several hundred thousand militants in the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) to one hundred thousand wealthy contributors, activists and power brokers in the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). In addition scores of propaganda mills, dubbed think tanks, have been established by million dollar grants from billionaire Zionists including the Brookings Institute (Haim Saban) and the Hudson Institute among others. Scores of Zionist funded political action committees (PAC) have intervened in all national and regional elections, controlling nominations and influencing election outcomes. Publishing houses, including university presses have been literally taken over by Zionist zealots, the most egregious example being Yale University, which publishes the most unbalanced tracts parroting Zionist parodies of Jewish history.1 New heavily funded Zionist projects designed to capture young Jews and turn them into instruments of Israeli foreign policy includes “Taglit-Birthright” which has spent over $250 million dollars over the past decade sending over a quarter-million Jews (between 18-26) to Israel for 10 days of intense brainwashing.2 Jewish billionaires and the Israeli state foot the bill."

(Read the whole thing and you'll understand my point about Jewish $$$$$)

This falls into the "no shit" category

Well what do you know, an Israeli spie under every hat. LOL

When are the sheeple going to get it about these Israel-Firsters? Huh?


I hate to admit it, but I am really enjoying the way the controversy over the proposed construction of an Islamic center (not a mosque) in the vicinity of ground zero has ripped the red, white, and blue smiley face mask right off, revealing the deep ugliness of the true face of "post racial" America, and drop kicking us all straight back to reality. Here is an experiment for you to try. Take this situation as it is described in the media and in blogs, and elsewhere, and as required, substitute, the words "Western", "Christian", "Jewish", "church", or "temple" in the place of "Muslim", "Islam", "Islamic", "mosque", etc. and then try to imagine the same very same people and politicians and pundits and religious leaders who are leading the latest anti-Islamic crusade, or standing on the sidelines justifying the ugly behavior, and wicked language of a good many so-called average Americans acting in exactly the same manner. We all know that they would NOT do so under ANY circumstances. This incident and many others like it, have thoroughly discredited the the assertions of so many in white America who claim that the bigotry, intolerance, and hatred that so many of us who deal with whites (and with members of other racial and ethnic groups) experience is either "all in our heads" or is just an excuse we use to avoid dealing with our personal short comings. I find it interesting (and disturbing) that the very same criminal justice system which was fully prepared to hold criminal trials for persons accused of being involved in planning the attacks of 9-11 among the vengeful and hate-crazed citizens of Manhattan and the other four bouroughs of New York didn't think that it was possible to find a single un-biased black person in either the San Francisco Bay Area or in greater Los Angeles to stand jury duty for the trial of BART police officer Messerli for the execution style murder of Oscar Grant. I also find in intersting that no commentators in the so-called mainstream media have noted this glaring descrepancy in how the so-called justice system perceives the reliability of different ethnic and racial groups when it comes to serving on juries. Oh well. It's just another day in the life of post-racial America.


I completely agree with the assessment by Michel Chossudovsky that an intentionally fueled frenzy about the mosque in the vicinity of ground zero could very well be a psy-op. In order to keep the fire/psychic fuel/mass mindstate stoked and blazing - they need to perpetually poke at the taboo in the public consciousness to rekindle the imprint. Ramadan falls on 9/11 this year. What better time to use this opportunity to turn the volume knob to 11.

American Muslims nervous about Ramadan's end coinciding with 9/11:

"Eid has never coincided with the anniversary of the September 11 attacks before. Because Muslims follow a lunar calendar, the holiday falls roughly 11 days earlier with each passing year . . . "
