Israel’s Secret Plan for a «Second Israel» in Ukraine

Wayne Madsen

The Times of Israel, an independent Israeli newspaper that counts among its staff a number of former reporters for the Israeli daily Ha’aretz, published a fascinating but largely overlooked story datelined Jerusalem and Zhitomir, Ukraine, March 16, 2014, and which was written by its respective Russian and Ukrainian correspondents, Hirsh Ostropoler and I. Z. Grosser-Spass, citing a secret report provided to the Israeli government. The report, written by a select panel of scholars of Jewish history drawn from academia and other research centers, concluded that that European Jews are in fact descended from Khazars, a war-like Mongol-Tatar group that ruled over Ukraine and southern Russia, which mass-converted to Judaism in the eighth century AD.

Zionists have long argued that the land claimed by Israel was the biblical birthright of the Jewish people who were forced from the land in a so-called «diaspora» after repeated conquests by various empires. Proof that Ashkenazi Jews, which make up a majority of the Israeli Jewish population, have no historical link to Palestine would call into question the entire premise of Israel as the historical «5,000-year old» homeland of the Jewish people.


America’s Weaponization of Ebola

Wayne Madsen

President Barack Obama has received a torrent of criticism for dispatching U.S. troops and National Guardsmen to the Ebola-ravaged West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea to help control the spread of the highly-lethal Ebola-Zaire hemorrhagic virus. While Cuba has sent qualified doctors to the stricken region, Obama has responded with troops answering to the U.S. Africa Command in Stuttgart, Germany.

Evidence has recently surfaced in a 2009 U.S. embassy Berlin cable to the U.S. State and Defense Departments that German authorities hesitated to send hemorrhagic fever cultures to the suspected biological warfare laboratory at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) in Fort Detrick, Maryland because the Germans feared the Army might «weaponize» the cultures. The cable, classified as «Sensitive», is dated December 15, 2009 and states:

«German MFA [Ministry of Foreign Affairs] Deputy Head of Division for Export Control Markus Klinger provided the following non-paper to Econoff [Embassy Economics Officer], seeking additional assurances related to a proposed export of extremely dangerous pathogens to the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases. The Army's end use certificate provided to Germany is lacking an official seal. Klinger's deputy, Nancy Reck, noted that Germany had made two follow-up requests to the Army seeking assurances and clarifications related to this proposed export. The GOG [Government of Germany] seeks assurances from the USG [US Government] or US Army that the end use certificate and the information contained therein are legitimate and accurate».

The «non-paper» reference is to an «aide-memoire», what is known in the diplomatic world as a note without an author, source, or title that is used to prepare for negotiations. The following «non-paper», which was originally written in German, was translated by the embassy and sent to Washington:


Washington’s Support for Right-Wing Secessionist Movements in Countries Targeted for Destabilization

Wayne Madsen

"The image he projected, by his use of vocabulary and his manner, frightened some people. He gave the impression that he was not a man who could be dominated. And a man who could not be dominated was dangerous." ~ Jean van Lierde, advisor and friend of Patrice Lumumba

Washington constantly accuses Russia of backing «secessionists» in eastern Ukraine against the right-wing and fascist-backed regime in Kiev. However, when it comes to backing secessionists against countries targeted by Washington for destabilization, America’s Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon wrote the book on such operations.

From supporting the secessionist movement in Katanga that sought to destabilize the government of Patrice Lumumba in newly-independent Congo to its backing of Ahwaz and Baluchi separatists against the government of Iran, the United States has no room accusing any other country of supporting secessionist movements to achieve foreign policy aims…

In 1960 and 1961, the CIA station in Leopoldville, now Kinshasa, Congo conspired with right-wing Congolese leaders like General Joseph Mobutu and Joseph Kasavubu to not only assassinate nationalist Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba but also prop up a secessionist regime in Elisabethville, now Lubumbashi, Katanga. Lumumba was eventually kidnapped and sent to Katanga where he was murdered by Belgian mercenaries and loyalists of Katangan secessionist leader Moise Tshombe. Mobutu, Kasavubu, and Tshombe were all on the CIA’s payroll. The CIA’s actions in 1960 and 1962 led the way for a Mobutu dictatorship that lasted into the 1990s.


The resurrection of the neocons

Wayne Madsen

Like proverbial «bad pennies», many of the leading neo-conservative architects of America’s failed interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan are being hauled back in front of television news cameras to comment on the current predicament that Washington finds itself with a surging «Al Qaeda» spinoff attempting to seize control of eastern Syria and western and northern Iraq and transform the area into a radical Islamic «caliphate».

Although the neo-cons are identifiable by their religious-ethnic makeup – over 90 percent are strong Zionists of eastern and central European Jewish descent, the chief leader of their resurgence is former Vice President Dick Cheney, a privileged member of America’s formerly dominant white Anglo-Saxon Protestant elite. As unapologetic as ever over his failed policy of invading and occupying Iraq, Cheney went on the «fraudcast» airwaves of Fox News and the op-ed page of The Wall Street Journal to lambaste the Obama administration for its failure to prevent the overrunning of a large portion of Iraq by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also called the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). Cheney’s op-ed in the Journal was co-written by his daughter Elizabeth, a failed U.S. Senate candidate from Wyoming and a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs during her father’s vice presidency.


From the pages of Orwell and «1984»: Irregular warfare against Eurasia

Wayne Madsen

«Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia.»

These are the words from «1984», George Orwell’s fictional novel. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible.

This is an eerily correct prognostication of future events from geopolitics to the loss of privacy and the rise of the surveillance state. Oceania fictionally represented the British Isles, North and South America, southern Africa, and Australasia. In Orwell’s world, Eurasia was comprised of Russia and Europe while another power, Eastasia, included China, Korea, and Japan.

Today, a modified form of the dystopian future world map of Orwell is becoming reality as Russia and China increasingly cooperate economically, politically, and militarily to ensure that the forces of Oceania – centered in Washington, London, Berlin, and Paris – do not overrun Eurasia.


Ice Station Obama

Although President Obama's «pivot to Asia» is receiving media attention, his little-known push to establish American hegemony over the rapidly melting Arctic polar zone has gone largely unnoticed. Using three NATO allies, all of them monarchies, Obama is trying to establish a U.S.-led condominium of the United States, Canada, Norway, and Denmark over the Arctic, conspicuously leaving Russia out of the equation. Obama’s military and intelligence push into the Arctic could be taken from the pages of the 1960s Cold War thriller by Alistair MacLean, «Ice Station Zebra», With the depletion of the Arctic ice pack opening up formerly non-navigable Arctic maritime zones to shipping, Obama and his Wall Street handlers are eyeing the Arctic as America’s new region for natural resource exploitation. And, as always, the Pentagon and the U.S. intelligence Community are ready to act as the centurions for the investment bankers and hedge fund tycoons.

U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s Arctic Strategy was unveiled in Halifax in November 2013. Hagel said the Pentagon’s «Arctic Strategy» is centered upon the U.S. bolstering its military capabilities in the Arctic region with the opening of new sea lanes for natural resource «exploration».


Bilderberg Elite Gather in Denmark to «Circle their Wagons»

Wayne Madsen

It’s not easy these days being members of the world’s elite class of business tycoons, bankers, political leaders of various «neo»-ideology stripes, and «bought-and-paid for» members of the media. In the European elections, the people have spoken. What the European electorate had to say about the globalization promoted for years by the cabal of Bilderberg billionaires, politicians, and propagandists that gathers in different countries annually to plot their next moves is certainly not music to the ears of the elite.

«Bilderberg 2014» chose Copenhagen, Denmark as their venue for their annual «off-the-record» meetings and side chats that adhere to so-called «Chatham House Rule». Chatham House is the headquarters for the elitist Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in London, a well-known front for Britain’s MI-6 Secret Intelligence Service. The RIIA serves as Britain’s version of the powerful and U.S. intelligence-connected Council on Foreign Relations in New York. The Chatham House Rule states: «Participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed».

Among the topics on the Bilderberg agenda this year are those that put the global elites in a crisis mode. Considering the number of times former U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) directors and their corporate surveillance facilitators have attended Bilderberg meetings, it’s easy to see why NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and his revelations about how the U.S. and other nations well represented at Bilderberg engage in wholesale invasions of personal privacy threaten the world’s elites. For that reason, the Bilderberg 2014 agenda poses the questions, «Does privacy exist» and «How special is the relationship in intelligence sharing?»


Doctor Strangelove Returns as General Breedlove

Wayne Madsen

«Mein Führer! Mein President!»

In Stanley Kubrick’s 1954 madcap dark comedy «Dr. Strangelove», the clearly demented main character is a former scientist for Adolf Hitler who ends up as a military adviser to a fictional American president involved in a nuclear standoff with the Soviet Union. The Strangelove character was not merely a figment of Kubrick’s otherwise brilliant imagination. Dr. Strangelove, who urges a massive nuclear strike on the Soviet Union, is based on two immigrant Cold Warriors from Europe possessing doctoral degrees: Dr. Henry Kissinger, the Machiavellian National Security Advisor to President Richard Nixon and Russian Affairs Advisor to President Barack Obama, and Dr. Edward Teller, the father of America’s hydrogen bomb. In real life, Kissinger, a German and a Jew, and Teller, a Hungarian Jew, brought their anti-Russian European political «baggage» to bear on America’s policy toward Moscow during the height of the Cold War. Kissinger and Teller, like the revenge-seeking Nazi, Strangelove, wanted Russia punished for personal political reasons.

Today, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander for Europe and chief of the U.S. European Command, four-star Air Force General Philip Breedlove, is attempting to reprise the movie role of Dr. Strangelove, his almost namesake. Just as Dr. Strangelove cited a «mine shaft» gap with the Soviets arising from a lack of underground facilities for the protection of American men and women who would repopulate the world through proper «breeding techniques», Breedlove has stated that NATO must match Russian troop deployments in western Russia with a commensurate buildup of NATO troops in its east.

Breedlove has stated that NATO’s military presence in Eastern Europe will continue with air, land and sea deployments until at least December 31 and possibly beyond. Sounding a lot like Dr. Strangelove in his analysis of the perceived Russian «threat» to Ukraine and NATO, Breedlove pulled out the best taling points from the RAND Corporation. Breedlove in a news conference held this month with Canada’s top military commander, Chief of the Defense Staff Tom Lawson. Breedlove said, «Based on the new paradigm that we see Russia has presented . . . we are all going to have to re-evaluate some of the decisions that we have made for structure, for positioning, for readiness, and . . . even more important in the short term, our force responsiveness will need to be re-evaluated.»


The CIA: Photoshopping a Crisis into a War

Wayne Madsen


I Was There. Just Ask The New York Times. (Got A Beard Now...)

A major Central Intelligence Agency conspiracy operation is currently playing out in Eastern Ukraine where, in an age of Photoshop and mail order credentials and military patches, photographs of the same bearded Russian "special forces" commando in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk in Ukraine this year and Georgia in 2008 are being successfully parlayed to the corporate media and by the Ukrainian ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) headquarters in Vienna. The conspiracy operation follows closely on the heels of CIA director John Brennan’s visit to Kiev where he provided intelligence advice to the unelected junta now governing the country…

The idea that an active duty Russian Special Forces soldier would have a long beard is laughable. No one in the Western corporate media has mentioned that long beards for any actual special forces commando is a strict taboo because any long hair can be detrimental in close hand-to-hand combat. Long hair of any type is not permitted for special forces unless a disguise is required for special missions, such as the beards grown by U.S. special forces personnel who entered Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks to make common cause with various anti-Taliban guerrilla forces. The U.S. Special Forces personnel were permitted to wear beards and grow their hair long because to have appeared in the tribal areas without such hair would have made them stand out as foreigners. Generally, however, the potential vulnerabilities inherent with any length of hair that can be pulled by an opponent, including facial hair, is why the Navy SEALS, Green Berets, and the Russian ALFA Group have strict standards barring any long hair among their active duty military personnel except in unusual circumstances like Afghanistan. In 2010, U.S. Special Forces units in Afghanistan were ordered to shave off their beards and conform to military regulation haircuts.


Ukraine: Poland trained putchists two months in advance

Lies have shorter and shorter legs. Two months after the change of regime in Kiev, the Polish press has disclosed the role of Donald Tusk’s government in preparing the coup. The new revelations belie Western discourse and demonstrate that the current interim government of Oleksandr Tourtchynov was imposed by NATO in violation of international law.

The Polish left-wing weekly Nie (No) published a startling witness account of the training given to the most violent of the EuroMaidan [1] activists.

According to this source, in September 2013, Polish Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski invited 86 members of the Right Sector (Sector Pravy), allegedly in the context of a university exchange program. In reality, the guests were not students, and many were over 40. Contrary to their official schedule, they did not go to the Warsaw University of Technology, but headed instead for the police training center in Legionowo, an hour’s drive from the capital. There, they received four weeks of intensive training in crowd management, person recognition, combat tactics, command skills, behavior in crisis situations, protection against gases used by police, erecting barricades, and especially shooting, including the handling of sniper rifles.

Such training took place in September 2013, while the Maidan Square protests were allegedly triggered by a decree suspending preparations for the signing of the Ukraine-European Union Association Agreement, which was issued by Prime Minister Mykola Azarov on November 21, i.e. two months later.

The Polish weekly refers to photographs attesting to the training, which show the Ukrainians in Nazi uniforms alongside their Polish instructors in civilian clothing.
