The Death of Alberto Nisman

 

Alberto Nisman’s death will go down as a suicide and no real and driven investigation will ever be launched to prove otherwise. He had been given the task of looking into things which nobody wanted to be searched through competently. Alberto Nisman had reached dead ends in much of his attempt to prosecute those who had been behind the 1994 bombing of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA) which had left 85 people dead and 300 others injured, predominantly Jews though there were also Christians who were employed and worked in the building and were amongst those struck, in the worst attack of its kind in the South American country. Alberto Nisman had traced the culpability back to Hezballah and Iranian influence but was facing opposition to getting exact information about accomplices and other involvements. He had recently alleged some of the blame for obstruction on the offices and person of President Cristina Kirchner, never a wise step when investigating things wanted buried. In an interview from a few days ago Alberto Nisman had said the investigation against Kirchner was “likely to kill me,” how prophetic. Often such Freudian slips where people state their fears in a mocking fashion or as a passing comment are very revealing and this mostly ignored comment during an interview may have indicated some deeply held fears for his life by Alberto Nisman. Alberto Nisman accused former president Carlos Menem of also obstructing the investigation into the bombing. The bombing came two years after an attack against the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires which has also not been fully investigated and had leads back to Hezballah and Iran.

 

This repetitive referencing of Hezballah and Iran of conducting such attacks within Buenos Aires, Argentina might appear to be a stretch but actually is not that difficult to believe. What is seldom mentioned by news reports is the fact that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRCG) and Hezballah, basically an offshoot division located and semi-controlling the country of Lebanon, have a base of operations deep in South America. In a small town in the ‘tri-borders’ town South America perched right on the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay is neglected by the law enforcement and security forces of each nations with each claiming the town is the responsibility of the other two thus avoiding what would likely become a small war zone should they actually attempt any actions. The top officers and many of the trainers are from the elite IRGC unit known as the Quds Force of Iran. These forces have been reported to train the enforcers for the Mexican drug cartels in exchange for their assistance in infiltrating forces and sleeper cells into the United States. The attempt to assassinate the Saudi ambassador residing in Washington D.C. was also linked back to having origins in this nefarious little area. Many of the top leadership throughout the Iranian government have at some point in their lives had ties to this area or to Iranian offices in South American nations such as Mohsen Rabbani who was the cultural attaché of the Iranian embassy in Buenos Aires. He has since moved on to head the Oriental Thought Cultural Institute in Qom, Iran, an office where he can recruit top people to become leading members of the forces charged with spreading the “cultural revolution” which brought the Ayatollahs to power in Iran elsewhere around the world. A more visceral definition would be that they are charged with executing attacks deemed desirable by the Iranian leadership around the world. It is for this reason plus covert training that the tri-border region facility is tasked to facilitate any actions in the Americas and the western continental areas.

 

The people, forces and organizational arrays which Alberto Nisman was charged with investigating were very powerful and stretched all the way back to some people very high in the Iranian government even to members and leaders in their parliament. We are speaking of people who have a very long reach and had proven to be capable of operating in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which was part of the reason there were crimes to be investigated. This might lead one to form some wild theories which would be dismissed as originating from insane ideas from beyond the cusp of sanity to explain the death of 51 year old Alberto Nisman from a gunshot wound to his head in his Buenos Aires apartment overnight, hours before he was to testify at a congressional hearing into cover-up allegations he leveled last week against Argentine President Cristina Kirchner. Nothing suspicious about such an obvious suicide, let’s move on after taking the appropriate amount of time to pay our respects and honor this dedicated public servant and show our regrets to this loss. Needless to say, but we will most definitely find others to carry on his work in this investigation but they will be starting with the handicap of not knowing all the thoughts and suspicions which Alberto Nisman took with him to his grave. Such a loss will be hard to take with his investigation leading to who knows where and now having to retrace steps and try to digest years of dedicated and sometimes, we admit, far reaching and uncomfortable boundaries which had been crossed by an intrepid and dedicated man who would investigate every lead regardless as to whom it may have implied to have been connected to those awful bombings at the two largest and most central Jewish entities in Buenos Aires, the Israeli embassy and the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association. Alberto Nisman will be missed and we fear that there will not be anyone who will be capable of filling his shoes to continue his work. I will pray for whoever is chosen to continue these investigations and hope they have half the temerity when it comes to following every lead regardless of who it offends, implicates or incriminates. Justice will be served only should the ensuing continuation of Alberto Nisman’s work makes those very same people uncomfortable and the full truth be revealed in the finality of the investigations.

Netanyahu Releases Trial Balloon Immediately Shot Down by Palestinians

Back at the start to the year we commented about the reaction by Palestinian Authority President Abbas or other Palestinian spokespeople to almost reflexively announce a new Palestinian position as a “Red Line” countering any proposal which was floated by the Israelis in the article “Kerry’s Great Accomplishments and Future Peace Plans.” We got to witness this reflex when predictably Saeb Erekat, lead Palestinian negotiator in the current talks, came out within hours and proclaimed that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s idea that the Jewish settlers should be allowed to continue to reside in their homes under Palestinian rule after the establishing of the Palestinian state was absolutely a Palestinian “Red Line” and that no Jewish settlers would be permitted to live within the Palestinian state. Truth of the matter is that Prime Minister Netanyahu did not make such a statement though that was how it was reported by some news outlets. What the Israeli leader had stated in his address at the World Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland was that he would not evict any of the settlers and later commented that he saw no reason why the Palestinian state would have to be “mono-ethnic.” In an effort to be accurate, after the idea was made public by the media, a number of Israeli leaders came out denouncing the idea as absurd, unworkable and unacceptable. The most noteworthy Israelis reacting negatively to the idea were Economics Minister Naftali Bennett of the Jewish Home Party and coalition member along with Deputy Defense Minister MK Danny Danon and Deputy Minister of Transportation, MK Tzipi Hotovely, both from the Prime Minister’s own Likud Party. Of course most people would realize the absurdity of leaving the Jewish residents in their present homes and allowing the area to be placed under Palestinian Authority rule would lead almost immediately to their deaths as there would be no IDF or other Israeli forces to protect them from ethnic violence. The truth of this was revealed on October 12, 2000, when two IDF reservists, Vadim Nurzhitz and Yossi Avrahami, got lost and ended up in Ramallah where initially the Palestinian Police took them into custody for their own safety. Soon afterwards a mob of angered Palestinians surrounded the police station demanding to be permitted to kill the Israeli soldiers. When the situation became life threatening the Palestinian police deserted their station and the mob literally tore the two reservists apart murdering them in a most horrific and barbarous manner. A similar fate would likely be the inevitable fate of any Israeli Jews left under Palestinian rule within the Palestinian state.

 

So, obviously Prime Minister Netanyahu could not have honestly had any intent to desert Israelis, settlers or otherwise, to the whims of the Palestinians which makes the entire series of events around this idea almost completely absurd. The only objective that could have potentially been gained from this was to make a concrete example of the automatic setting by the Palestinian leadership of a new “Red Line” countering any proposal or idea the Israelis make concerning the peace process. Even with this example, by the end of the week it will have been allocated to the memory hole and disappeared from any future discourse, so any gains which might have been accrued will be short lived. Perhaps this entire episode from the Israeli side was simply to have a demonstration for the benefit of United States Secretary of State Kerry and any others attending the Davos conference as to one of the main stumbling blocks which is making it near to impossible for any peace to be forthcoming from the current talks. The problem with that idea is anybody who has missed the point demonstrated in this event by now is probably not going to accrue any additional knowledge from these events as their minds are locked in the “Blame Israel” position.

 

Meanwhile, on other fronts the European Union Parliament has continued their assault against circumcision calling it dangerous and damaging to the child. The European Union recommended to member countries that they initiate and pass legislation to place limitations to under which circumstances and by whom a circumcision can be performed. Their plans would completely ban the ritual religious practice of circumcision as it is practiced by both Muslims and Jews. In Judaism the rite of circumcision is considered to be a vital part of the Covenant between the Jewish people and G0d and as such an essential cornerstone of the faith. This considered along with the attempts across Europe to ban Shechita, the procedure used to produce Kosher meats, is just one additional proof of the war being carried out against Jews and the practice of Judaism. Many of the Jewish practices also are applicable to the practice of Islam and Christianity thus the truth is that the European governances are actually declaring a war on historic religions while attempting through legal pressures and manipulation of education and societal standards to enforce a secular and atheistic socialist humanism as the religion of the new age. This quasi-faith substitutes the government for God by claiming that all things which are good and worthwhile come from government and that the government is the sole arbiter of good and evil. The main consequence thus far of this war against established religions aside from the worship of the bounty and goodness of the State has been a rekindling of anti-Semitism across much of Europe. This was recently made obvious in Rome where boxes containing pig’s heads were delivered to the Israeli Embassy, one of the main Synagogues and a Jewish Museum currently having a Holocaust memorial on display for Holocaust Remembrance day which is today, January 27, 2014. Included with the vile contents of these boxes were notes refuting the actual events of the Holocaust and defaming Anne Frank as a hoax and imaginary individual used by Jews in their ploys to control governments and financial institutions. That was just one of the most recent anti-Semitic events which have also caused the desecration of numerous Jewish cemeteries, Holocaust memorials, graffiti with Nazi references upon synagogues and Jewish schools and centers and, worst of all, attacks on people wearing Jewish garments such as a Yarmulke. As a consequence of such anti-Semitic events and attacks, many Jews are leaving Europe and heading to either Israel or the United States. It is unfortunate to have to state that those European Jews who are seeking protection and a healthier environment in the United States may very well find themselves under the same rising tide of anti-Semitism even there where, due to a cultural practice occurring in numerous cities called the “Knockout Game” or “Knock Out The Jew” or “Get the Jew”, Jews have become subjects for being struck in the head with the full force of the assailant intending to knock their Jewish victim out cold or, minimally, knock them to the ground. In some of these attacks once the Jew has been knocked to the ground they are set upon and kicked and punched severely injuring them and some cases have left the Jew dead in the street. It is seemingly the position of some, and hopefully a very small group, are of the belief that the Jews should not be permitted to live in their society or even their nation while also holding to the position that the Jews should be forced from Israel and all of the lands be given to the Palestinians. That begs the question, if Jews are to be denied their own nation in Israel and banned from every other nation on Earth, then where are we to live, and I do understand what the answer would be. Sometimes there are those in the world which are revolting in their hatreds and these people must be stood up against and refuted by good people before their hatreds lead to another disgraceful disaster for the human race.
