Israel endorses Internet Censorship

May 17, 2015

Israel’s Government anti-Semitism conference endorses net censorship

A government-convened international conference on anti-Semitism in Jerusalem on Thursday issued an action plan calling for Internet censorship as a remedy for anti-Jewish sentiment. ….

Convened by the Foreign Ministry and the Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs Ministry, the Global Forum for Combating Anti-Semitism (GFCA) is a biennial gathering bringing together Jewish community leaders, civil society representatives and diplomats to discuss ways to grapple rising levels of anti-Jewish prejudice. …

the GFCA called upon the EU and national governments to adopt a formal definition of anti-Semitism that would include “unambiguous reference to attacks on the legitimacy of the State of Israel and its right to exist and Holocaust denial as forms of anti-Semitism.”

Moreover, the EU and its member states should agree on standard mechanisms for the monitoring of anti-Semitism and review their laws to “ensure an adequate legal framework and law enforcement instruments for combating anti-Semitism” as well as applying existing legislation more proactively. …

Israel – Massive Spying in the US

May 17, 2014

US accuses Israel of ‘alarming, even terrifying’ levels of spying

Israel, it would appear, is after everything it can lay its hands on: not just diplomatic and policy documents, but industrial and military technology. The means include Israeli trade missions to the US, joint ventures between Israeli and American companies and, presumably, spying by Israeli intelligence agencies. ….

a US government report after 9/11 concluded that Israel ran the most aggressive espionage operation against the US of any ally. Three years later, two officials of AIPAC, America’s most powerful pro-Israel lobby group, were charged with spying, for passing to Israel official documents on US policy towards Iran. The case was dropped in 2009 – but how many others have been, or will be, quietly brushed under the carpet can only be guessed at. ….

Jewish Charity Industry Uncovered

April 21, 2014

The Jewish Charity Industry Uncovered: 26 Billion Bucks

Forward (New York)

http://forward.com/articles/194978/-billion-bucks-the-jewish-charity-industry-unco/

The American Jewish community’s network of charity

organizations is a font of Jewish power, a source of

communal pride and a huge mystery … The Forward’s

investigation has uncovered a tax-exempt Jewish communal

apparatus that operates on the scale of a Fortune 500

company and focuses the largest share of its donor dollars

on Israel … The Jewish community’s federations, schools,

health care and social service organizations, Israel aid

groups, cultural and communal organizations, and advocacy

groups report net assets of $26 billion … It’s an

apparatus that benefits massively from the U.S. federal

government and many state and local governments, in the

form of hundreds of millions of dollars in government

grants, billions in tax-deductible donations and billions

more in program fees paid for with government funds.

The ‘Forward’ Study of the Jewish Charity Industry

Kevin MacDonald – Occidental Observer

http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2014/03/forward-study-of-the-jewish-charity-industry/

… These numbers for donations to Jewish charity are

underestimates because the IRS doesn’t require synagogues

to file tax returns, and the same goes for schools and

seminaries … The other way in which such a report fails

to get at the scope of financial support for Jewish ethnic

activism is that it does not include organizations that

are not explicitly Jewish but are supported by Jews for

ethnic reasons. … Consider the neocon infrastructure,

such as the Foundation for Defense of Democracies: All of

the identifiable donors are Jews …

Controlled Opposition: Sophisticated Jewish Power

Gilad Atzmon

http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/controlled-opposition-from-goldstein-to-soros-and-beyond.html

… Jewish power is actually far more sophisticated than

simply a list of Jewish lobbies or individuals performing

highly developed manipulative skills. Jewish power is the

unique capacity to stop us from discussing or even

contemplating Jewish power. It is the capacity to

determine the boundaries of the political discourse and

criticism in particular. Contrary to popular belief, it is

not ‘right wing’ Zionists who facilitate Jewish power, It

is actually the ‘good’, the ‘enlightened’ and the

‘progressive’ who make Jewish power the most effective and

forceful power in the land.

Jewish Charity Scandals Tied to Long Tenures and Weak Oversight

. four scandals in 2013 are different in their circumstances. But according to Andrés Spokoiny, president and CEO of the Jewish Funders Network, all four come down to poor oversight on the part of their boards. ….

The four 2013 scandals and the Madoff scandal are only the most high-profile recent governance flubs in Jewish not-for-profits. There have been plenty of others since 2008, like the IRS’s revocation of the Zionist Organization of America’s tax exemption for failing to file tax returns. In 2011, a clerk at UJA-Federation of New York attempted to steal donor credit card information in an identity theft scheme.

London Banking – Crooks

January 11, 2014

City of London Corporation –  Casino Banking

. the historic centre of London and the location of much of the UK’s financial sector. Until 2006, when the name was changed to avoid confusion with the wider London local government authority, the Greater London Authority, it was informally known as the Corporation of London.

The Corporation of London

 

The City of London, also known as the Corporation of London, the City of London Corporation and the Square Mile, is officially called the Mayor and Commonality and Citizens of the City of London. Though constituting only a small geographical area within Greater London itself, the City is administered by its own set of local governing bodies …

 

Tax Haven Status

 

In “Treasure Islands”, Shaxson states that “Few British people, let alone anyone else, know that the City of London is the most important financial center in the global offshore system. Before getting properly into the strangeness of this ancient city, some of its more obvious offshore qualities are worth noting. London’s first claim to be a tax haven is the subject of this chapter: its role as the creator and developer of the Euromarkets, Wall Street’s giant escape route from the checks and balances of U.S. financial regulation. Here the subsidiaries and affiliates of U.S. commercial banks have long been allowed to engage in, among many other things, investment banking—“casino banking,” as some have called it—

 

As Shaxson further explains, “London provides endless loopholes for U.S. financial corporations, and many U.S. banking catastrophes can be traced substantially to those companies’ London offices. …

Treasure Islands: Uncovering the Damage of Offshore Banking and Tax Havens

 

Treasure Islands is an expose of how the corporate world uses tax havens to shirk paying its share of taxes. This costs the United States alone 100 billion dollars in lost revenue each year. While the United States experiences a recession and European countries face bankruptcy, Nicholas Shaxson, a former correspondent for the Financial Times and The Economist, argues that the problem can be traced back to the pervasive practice of offshoring financing in order to minimize taxable revenue. Journeying from Moscow to London to Switzerland to Delaware, he dives deep into a vast and secret playground where bankers and multinational corporations operate side by side with nefarious tax evaders, organized criminals, and the world’s wealthiest citizens. This is a fast-paced narrative that at last explains how bankers, traders, and other financial wizards are using the system to deepen our economic divide.

S. Fischer – Wrong Choice for Fed Deputy

January 7, 2014

Former Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer Wrong Choice for Fed.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/former-bank-israel-governor-stanley-145200716.html

Appointing an openly dual Israeli-American citizen into the most important central bank in the world could be a watershed moment.  While the doors of federal government have long swung open for Israel-lobby appointees focusing most—if not all—their energies on advancing the interests of a foreign state, any who were actually Israeli dual citizens have traditionally kept that a closely-guarded secret. Fischer’s long-term boosters, including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), likely want to accustom Americans to openly dual citizens circulating between top roles in the U.S. and Israeli governments.  ….   an ardent supporter of Israel … 

After the input of Fischer’s team, subsequent U.S. aid was delivered in the form of outright grants paid directly from the U.S. Treasury—never to be repaid ….

Israel and its U.S. supporters have many hidden reasons for wanting stronger influence at the Fed that they would likely prefer not to discuss. … That the Fed is a key player in Iran sanctions implementation is certainly no secret.  …

If Israel has already decided to attack Iran, it would benefit immensely from having Fischer inside the Fed, protecting the financial flows Israel now regards as all but a birthright from its primary global underwriter. …

AIPAC, Fischer’s co-author of harmful U.S. economic policies on behalf of Israel, likely sees the Fischer appointment as an important test case ….

From AIPAC’s perspective, having qualified Israelis directly run key divisions of the U.S. Treasury such as Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, rather than indirectly through  AIPAC-vetted appointees such as Stuart Levey and his hand-picked successor David Cohen, could probably boost the volume of taxpayer give-aways while improving coordination with Israel. ….

the lobby may now feel the moment is right for appointing Israeli generals into the Joint Chiefs at the Department of Defense. …

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Stanley Fischer, who led the Bank of Israel for eight years until he stepped down in June, has been asked to be the Federal Reserve’s next vice chair once Janet Yellen takes over as chief of the U.S. central bank  ….

Fischer, as an American-Israeli, would also need Senate approval if he accepts the offer from the White House.  …
