Jews and their strident promotion of multiculturalism throughout Europe and America.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Jews and their strident promotion of multiculturalism throughout Europe and America.

Jews have in many ways brought much of this hostility upon themselves by their strident promotion of multiculturalism throughout Europe and America.

It is impossible to deny that leading Jewish intellectuals and ‘radicals’ have been in the forefront promoting this sort of thing throughout the West for decades. Majority of Jews, living in Europe and America have embraced Communism or Cultural-Marxism as their foundational worldview.

Multiculturalism, as a foundational tenet or extension of Cultural-Marxism, has been strongly promoted by modern Jews because they see it as something that will protect them from the hostility of WASPs (white, anglo, Saxon-Protestants) whom they view as their greatest threat.

In other words, the more the West is filled with non-whites, it’s reasoned, the less likely will Jews become the target of white hatred or discrimination. Thus, many Jews – some perhaps unknowingly – have worked tirelessly to promote liberal immigration policies and to fill Europe and America with as much ‘diversity’ as possible.

A large percentage of Jews, then, have promoted destructive policies for Europe and America which they would never promote for Israel because they rightly recognize that if Israel were to become as ‘multicultural’ as the West, Jews would lose their unique racial and cultural identity! In other words, ‘multiculturalism’ for thee, but not for me. The hubris and blatant hypocrisy on the part of many Jews is astonishing.

The first Anti-Fascist Congress of Antimaidan/Novorossiya Council in Moscow.

The first Antifa Congress of Antimaidan/Novorossiya Council in Moscow.

Moscow hosted the "The Anti-Fascist Congress of Antimaidan Council", whose members denounced fascism as an ideology, adopted a resolution, which talks about cooperation with the state structures of the Russian Federation, as well as announced a struggle against the "world's backstage" and "fifth column." In this struggle, the anti-fascists call to rally around Vladimir Putin. The core of "Antimaydan Council" consists of prominent activists of the separatist movement in the East of Ukraine, as well as members of the Communist Party and VIPs from of all sorts of "veteran" organizations.

The "World's backstage" rages in dreams of finishing Russia off and consuming our mineral and other resources. Well, in the "fifth column" they found a partner, whom they are willing to pay and already pay for services to overthrow President and break apart the Russian Federation", - says the resolution of the "Anti-Fascist Congress" that gathered in Moscow on Thursday.

"The only chance to protect ourselves, our families, our home, our homeland from collapse and civil war - is the consolidation of all public civil patriotic forces around our Motherland and the popularly elected President Vladimir Putin. To support with real actions ... to ensure the country's political stability and prevent the Maidan technologies - separatism, Nazism, fascism ... we create a permanent system of specific "People's commissions of Anti-maidan" of support from citizens and social structures of the constitutional order, "- says the adopted document.

It is reported that 300 NGOs united in the fight against world's backstage and the "so-called civil society of human rights activists and liberal grant-eaters". That's an average of at least four organizations per each of the delegates who gathered on November 20 in a small cinema of the Museum of the Great Patriotic War [WW2] on Poklonnaya Hill,

The reason for the convening of the "Anti-Fascist Congress" were the events in Ukraine. The meeting was attended by Denis Pushilin - former Chairman of the Presidium of the "Supreme Council of the Donetsk People's Republic", now deputy chairman of the National Council of the self-proclaimed DPR, and several other delegates from the separatist southeast of Ukraine.

Pushilin and field commander Vladimir Novikov were handed an unofficial "Order or Margelov." Vasily Margelov - the founder of the Soviet airborne troops.

"Fascism - is a terrible thing, I'll tell you - told the audience Viktor Popov, veteran of Spetsnaz "Vympel". - But we have a short memory [...] we have forgotten that people were burned in furnaces, that people were shot by the hundreds of thousands, killing them based on exactly the racial traits - the very thing we are seeing now in Ukraine [:] and that tomorrow will come, maybe, to our home."

With the internal enemy the current government, according to anti-fascists, are fighting too hesitantly.

"Fascist forces on the territory of the Russian Federation are amplified, strengthened, they see their impunity, permissiveness, and by all means it's necessary to take measures at the legislative level to stop their activities to just kick them out of here" - urged Margaret Seidhler, who was together with the group of Igor Girkin-Strelkov in Slavyansk.

Core areas of "Antimaydan Council" will be the work to coordinate with law enforcement agencies, ideological education and informational-coordination of structures and resources of the Council, the socio-political interaction.

War in the Eastern Ukraine. ZOG project "Novorossiya".

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at War in the Eastern Ukraine. ZOG project "Novorossiya".



Some Russian politicians talk about the USSR 2.0, state TV channels do not cease to frighten with the "genocide of Russian-speaking population" (forgetting to remind you that the genocide already goes on for years in Russia [translator's note: figuratively referring to White genocide & population replacement]), and pro-Kremlin nationalists even fantasize on the theme of the so-called "Russian Spring".

Despite the service of the first persons of Novorossiya in the repressive organs of the Russian Federation [FSB], despite the appointment of Communists in the chief political offices, despite numerous statements [of their] pro-Putin leaders' commitment to internationalism (remember the verbatim quote from Gubarev about "red orthodox project," recall Pushilin's public denial of the presence of any nationalism among the separatists, recall statements from commanders Girkin and Bezler about the commitment to heritage of the Red Army and willingness of "fight the Nazis," remember finally all that "Soviet-dedyvoevatelskaya" [translator's note: "dedyvoevatelskaya" - from "our grandfathers have fought" - derisive reference to cliches of Cult of Soviet Victory like "our grandfathers fought the nazis"] rhetoric, which permeates every frame of footage from the separatist camp), despite all this - pro-Kremlin nationalists continue the rituals over the expiring body of Novorossiyan Frankenstein, hoping to convince themselves that the red - it is white.


To such speculation contributes the fact that all information about the Novorossiya passes through bloggers who distort it for their own purposes, by wishful thinking. To once and for all reveal the true political aspirations and ideological principles of Novorossiya we turn to the source - namely, the statement of the Public Council of Novorossiya.

Public Council of Novorossiya was formed 24 and 25 May 2014 by representatives of Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye, Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson and Sumy regions of South-East of Ukraine, as well as the so-called Donetsk People's Republic and Lugansk People's Republic.

Public Council is one of the principal organs of the joint political coordination between DPR and LPR, and aims to form a new state entity - Novorossiya. Public Council is developing and agreeing on common principles of creating Novorossiya, definition of its values ​​and objectives. During the congress of the public council of Novorossiya its members made a joint statement later published by the newspaper "Zavtra." (Stalinism and patriotism").

This statement is worth a careful read because it once and for all answers the question - what is Novorossiya and why Russian nationalists must destroy it. So:
"We see Novorossiya as the place where will come to life the tradition of fraternal community of people, which will form a single civilization, overcoming ethnic, confessional and social limitations [translators note: another possible translation -- "separations"]. Sovereignty and identity of Russian world has always been based on the integration and consolidation of different traditions, cultures and peoples.

Our values ​​are the mutual enrichment of cultures and people, internationalism and anti-fascism, justice and solidarity. We are committed to the creation of a common future for all citizens, a future, from which none of our fellow citizens can not be excluded because of its native language, national origin or religious beliefs.

Novorossiya we see a place where freedom of conscience will be connected with respect for all religions.

We stand for the transformation of society on a democratic basis, to overcome the dominance of the oligarchy and true equality for all members of society, for equality, not only proclaimed the official documents, but guaranteed by real state practice, for equal access of all to culture and science, for the right to education in their native language.

We will fight for a society where citizens are provided with decent working conditions and employment support, for free accessible and quality education and health care, pensions and for decent living conditions. Our priority is to ensure the welfare and social rights of every family, socially oriented housing policy.

We see the future Novorossiya democratic, based on a real government, citizens' access to decision-making. Country, where different ideologies will have the right to exist - except Nazism and racism.

We see the future Novorossiya place where the modern economy based on industrial upgrading, development of science and rational use of the creative potential of the people.

We are confident that our struggle and our commitment to a better future are the continuation of a great common history of Russia, Ukraine, the Soviet Union and modern Eurasian, the history that our peoples are creating today joining our forces.

Novorossiya is to become an open project for the implementation of the proclaimed values ​​and principles, reserving a right to declare full independence.

Novorossiya is to become an arena for the realization of ideas, hopes and aspirations of all the people, sincerely worried about the fate of the Motherland, aspiring to make her happy and prosperous."




One of symbols St Geoge's Ribbon signifying worhip of the "Great Victory" (implicit confirmation of the absolute key importance of the Cult of Soviet Victory to neo-sovietism). And it stands for the (cult of) Soviet victory, "overcoming the nazis in WW2" that typically is extended (by RF mainstream "doctrine") into the "eternal mission" to fight against the revival of so called "fascism" *racialism, WN, NS, ethno-nationalism and anything else spin doctors of putinism stick the label on). Cult of Soviet Victory is 5th and perhaps the most key element in Shiropaev's analysis of neo-sovietism.

Personally, I believe the Soviet decision about Crimea must have had pragmatic reasons too and many Russians even on "Novorossiya" side understand this as well. That "illegal"decision is more like just propaganda for simpleton minds designed to rile people up. Crimea was very economically attached to South-East Ukraine (to which it is also geographically connected) in Soviet times and in post-Soviet times. A lot of Ukrainian investment (both by the modern Ukraine and the Ukrainian SSR within the USSR) was made into Crimea, for decades, everything from building power transmission lines to water lines and other infrastructure shared between this peninsula and the Ukrainian south-east.

Nevertheless, for me, personally, for many supporters of Ukraine and for many Ukrainians themselves, from what I've seen, Crimea isn't the main thing. They understand that, in a way, it never was truly "Ukrainian". But one of the problems with Crimea is that, in a way, it may predetermine further conflict. That's exactly what many supporters of "Novorossiya" were/are saying: "we took Crimea, now we must take east-south of Ukraine" (at least the coastline), because of the need to connect Crimea by land and to capture the key infrastructure (electricity, water) that Crimea is dependent on. So, Crimea breaks the faith and all the previous agreements (and there were several) putting the entire border in question.

There is Ukraine (as a state) and Ukrainian nationalists (volunteer battalions). Ukraine can, as a state (and not a nationalist-controlled one) be compared to "Novorossiya"/people's republics LPR and DPR/aka ORDiLO, or to Russia.

Ukrainian nationalists, on the other hand, can be compared with nationalists in "Novorossiya" (a group that, since Rusich departure and some other departures, have dwindled, it appears, to almost nothing). If Rusich itself has said that this "Novorossiya" is a piece of dung and fled it (or it's possible they would've ended like the infamous "Batman"), then I don't know what else needs to be discussed about the difference between Ukraine and "Novorossiya". Everything else notwithstanding, this "Novorossiya" and the ideas it's built upon (Soviet crap, antifascism and other leftist junk) deserve utter defeat, discreditation and death.

Jew Kobzon is always welcomed and most respected person in Novorossiya, he often thinks together with jewish leader of LPR Plotnitskiy and head of DPR Zakharchenko:



Interesting facts about Kobzon:

- In 1994, the World League of Jews recognized Kobzon "Best Jewish year."

- Because of links with the mafia, Kobzon is forbidden to enter into the United States since the mid-1990s

- Kobzon was a friend with Chechen terrorists in early 1990s, received the award "People artist of Ichkeria"

- After all, Kobzon is just a typical jew:

The Government of Novorossiya held preliminary talks that the music for the anthem of the Union State will be writen by Joseph Kobzon said on the air of "Russian news service," the speaker of parliament of New Russia, leader of the "South-East" Oleg Tsarev. "I think this is worthy of Kobzon, and of Novorossiya, too," - he said.

And it stands for the (cult of) Soviet victory, "overcoming the nazis in WW2" that typically is extended (by RF mainstream "doctrine") into the "eternal mission" to fight against the revival of so called "fascism" [racialism, WN, NS, ethno-nationalism and anything else spin doctors of putinism stick the label on].

Ukraine separatists celebrate Soviet holiday in Donetsk
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/feb/23/ukraine-separatists-soviet-holiday-mens-day-donetsk

Israeli citizens are fighting on the terrorist side of the Ukrainian conflict.

One of those foreign fighters is Ina Levitan, a 37-year-old Tel Aviv resident of Azerbaijani origin, who has been fighting on the side of Ukrainian separatists on the front lines near the rebel- held city of Luhansk since late 2014 in order to fight who she calls fascists and neo-Nazis. While born in Baku, she grew up in Israel and never thought that she would return to the Soviet Union, but when an acquaintance disappeared in eastern Ukraine last September she began investigating the conflict, she told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.

After a few days she was able to track down her friend’s whereabouts but continued researching the conflict, and “after a month and a half I decided to go to Novorossia,” she said, using the Russian imperial term for the territories on the north coast of the Black Sea encompassing what is now eastern Ukraine.

She said that she was motivated to join the separatists after learning of “crimes carried out against the civilian population.”

In an open letter on the website of the Israeli Communist Party, Levitan said the goal of her brigade is not to enter into conflict with Ukraine or its citizens, but rather to “fight against the fascist, pro-Nazi and oligarchs” and help the people.

She railed against what she called “pro-Nazi activists” using Nazi salutes and symbols who are “torturing and murdering civilians and soldiers of the army of Ukraine who do not share their views.”

“I myself saw a man who returned from captivity in the hands of neo-Nazis.

They cut limbs and tattooed his body with swastikas. We are fighting against these atrocities that occur repeatedly and harm civilians,” she wrote, accusing the West of ignoring war crimes.

“As an Israeli, I personally, viscerally hate fascists,” she asserted.

While many of her fellow fighters are Russians and Ukrainians, there are also Spaniards, Serbians, Italians and Israelis.

Speaking with the Russian media late last year, Donetsk People’s Republic foreign minister Alexander Kofman, who is Jewish, asserted that there are dozens of former IDF soldiers fighting in Donetsk.

“I would say [they are] people who are looking for the show, let it be in Ukraine or Sudan, it’s no difference,” he mused.

“For both sides, the Jewish factor was very important in the beginning of the war. It’s less important now but then it was very important to show to both sides that they have the Jews fighting for them [and] the Israelis, and that the Jewish community abroad are their supporters… I think that this is much more PR as usual and there’s nothing to talk about.”

Levitan, however, disagreed, telling the Post that she saw the conflict as a “huge political game” in which oligarchs are filling their pockets at the expense of the average citizen.

The Western media is distorting the nature of the rebellion in Ukraine, just as it distorts Israel’s fight against Palestinian terrorism, she said. “Every Israeli can easily understand that a similar situation occurs in the area of Novorossia.”

She has no regrets because she is able to fight for her principles, she continued, adding that being an Israeli and commemorating Holocaust Remembrance Day taught her the importance of standing up to Nazis.

Zakharchenko's Oplot ("Stronghold") organization - anti-Ukrainism, neo-sovietism, anti-fascism. Unfortunately, this was how a typical "pro Russian" organization in Ukraine looked like.


Edward Snowden: "Putin introduces draconian neosoviet surveillance laws".

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Edward Snowden: "Putin introduces draconian neosoviet surveillance laws".


'Putin has signed a repressive new law that violates not only human rights, but common sense'.

Whistleblower and press freedom activist Edward Snowden has condemned a new law signed on Thursday by Vladimir Putin, saying it's a “dark day for Russia”.

The new anti-terror legislation forces telephone carriers and internet providers to store the private communications of their customers – and turn them over to the government on request.

“Putin has signed a repressive new law that violates not only human rights, but common sense. Dark day for Russia,” he wrote on Twitter.

Mr Snowden is a former employee of the USNational Security Agency (NSA) who exposed global surveillance programmes in 2013 through a leak of classified NSA documents.

The whistleblower joined Twitter in September and has more than 2.2 million followers. However, he only follows one account on the social network – that of the NSA.

Russian communication providers may have to spend more than $30 billion to implement the new laws, Mr Snowden added in a second tweet.

“Signing the Big Brother law must be condemned. Beyond political and constitution consequences, it is also a $33b+ tax on Russia's internet,” he wrote.

The communication companies will have to keep a record of their users’ calls, text messages, photos, and internet activity for six months, and store ‘metadata’ for three years, according to theInternational Business Times.

And messaging services that use digital encryption, such as WhatsApp, Viber and Telegram, could face fines of thousands of pounds if they continue to operate in Russia without handing over their encryption key to the government.

“Even the Soviet Union did not have such an overwhelmingly repressive legislation,” Russian politician and businessman Gennady Gudkov told the Los Angeles Times.
“This is 100 percent a step toward an Iron Curtain.”

The new legislation, which makes “failure to report a crime” a criminal offence, comes into force on 20 July.

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Kremlin, told reporters: “The law has been passed along with a list of recommendations to the government designed to minimize potential financial risks.”

“If the law produces any undesired outcomes, the government will introduce measures accordingly by presidential decree.”


Mike Eckel reports:

The legislation, signed into law earlier this month by Russian President Vladimir Putin, had already drawn scorn from critics in and outside of Russia.

Known as the "Yarovaya Law," the measure includes new police and counterterrorism measures that directly echo the sweeping powers wielded by the KGB to stifle dissent and repress opposition activists throughout the Soviet era.

But one largely overlooked aspect of the law is garnering new scrutiny and worry: tight restrictions on the activities of religious groups, particularly smaller denominations.

The new restrictions "will make it easier for Russian authorities to repress religious communities, stifle peaceful dissent, and detain and imprison people," said Thomas J. Reese, who heads the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, a federal government agency that monitors religious expression around the world.

"Neither these measures nor the currently existing antiextremism law meet international human rights and religious freedom standards," he said in statement released last week.



For religious groups, the new law requires people to get official permits through a registered religious group and bars things like prayer meetings from taking place anywhere except for officially recognized religious buildings. That would potentially forbid house churches.

Members of a religious group would also potentially be barred from e-mailing invitations to people interested in services, according to Christianity Today, a web-based news service focused on religious issues.

Violators could be fined, or potentially expelled from Russia.



Sergei Ryakhovsky, a Pentecostal church leader and co-head of an organization of Protestant churches in Russia, said in an open letter co-signed by him that the law contradicted the Russian Constitution.

"The obligation on every believer to have a special permit to spread his or her beliefs, as well as hand out religious literature and material outside of places of worship and used structures, is not only absurd and offensive, but also creates the basis for mass persecution of believers for violating these provisions," said the letter, which was posted on the Russian-language religious website Portal-Credo.

"This law brings us back to a shameful past," it said.

Last month, four of Russia’s leading mobile operators wrote a joint letter to the Russian Federation Council asking to revoke the new laws, according to the Moscow Times.

Millennia of terror and genocide. Islam’s genocidal colonization and White slave trade in Europe.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Millennia of terror and genocide. Islam’s genocidal colonization and White slave trade in Europe.


This article concentrates on the slave trade of people from Eastern Europe, Balkans, and Asia Minor/Byzantium:  Remember, Mohammad (allah) demanded jihad/war until all the religion is allah’s—it cannot go away and nor can the associated slavery and dhimmitude.  (see comments from 20th century Muslims and others on the ongoing desire for jihad Bostom p 94-104). Both Ottoman Turkey and Shiite Iran openly practised slavery in the 20th century.    The last Ottoman sultan had a British captive in his harem, 20th century (Khan  p325).  Slavery continues throughout the Islamic world today and is brought by Muslims into the west.

Europe, Asia Minor, the Balkans etc were initially attacked by Arab Muslims, then Muslim Turks and Tartars attacked central and eastern Europe (11th-15th century),  Muslim Tartars attacked Poland and Muscovite Russia (15th-17th century); and Asia Minor was attacked by Seljuk and Ottoman Turks (11th-15thC ) while Persia, Armenia, and Georgia were attacked by many Muslim groups including Shiite Safavids.

From the 11th century, particularly as Arab power was waning, the Turks moved out into the middle-east eg Syria, Palestine and spread through Asia Minor (much of today’s Turkey) to North Africa and into the Balkans/Eastern Europe.

Islamic slavery, destruction, conquest and dhimmitude Bat Ye’r notes:

“The two waves of Muslim expansion, the Arab from the seventh century and the Turkish from 4 centuries later-are remarkably similar....the great Arab and Turkish conquerors used the same military tactics and the same policies of consolidating Islamic power.  This continuity resulted from the fact that the conquests took place within the framework of the common ideology of jihad and the administrative and judicial apparatus of the sharia- a uniformity that defies time, since it adapts itself to diverse lands and peoples, being integrated into the internal coherence of a political theology.  In the course of their military operation, the Turks applied to the conquered populations the rules of jihad, which had been structured 4 centuries earlier by the Arabs and enshrined in Islamic sacred law. (Bostom p 60)”

Malik Shah (1072-1092) During his reign the Seljuk Empire comprised Khorezm, Transoxiana, Khorasan, Persia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Irak, Syria and Anatolia.

In Anatolia (Asia Minor/Turkey), the Islamic frontier, during the 11th and 12 th centuries, ‘warriors of  Islam’(ghazi) came to fight infidels and obtain booty in the Seljuk and Ottoman Turk jihad campaigns.  These groups, including nomadic tribes were champions of Islam, dedicated to fighting the infidels around them.

“the ideal of gaza, holy war. Was an important factor in the foundation and development of the Ottoman state.,....continuous expansion of Dar al-Islam....until they conquered the whole world.” (contemporary Turkish scholar of Ottoman history, Halil Inalcik  ...Bostom p 61)

“From the very beginning....the Turks tried to consolidate their position by the forcible imposition of Islam.   If (the Ottoman historian) Sukrullah is to be believed, those who refused to accept the Moslem faith were slaughtered and their families enslaved.  “Where there were bells, Suleiman broke them up and cast them into fires.  Where there were churches he destroyed them or converted them into mosques....” (quoted in Bostom p 63-64)

Dervishes worked to spread religious fervour, took part in military acts and were given land and privileges from rulers.

The conquest of Asia Minor occurred over 4 centuries.  It took the Turks about 2 centuries to conquer the Balkans  (today’s Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, Greece, European part of Turkey, Bosnia-Herzegovina) with incalculable ruin of material goods,
Turkoman Archer

massacre, enslavement, exile, destruction of farming, destruction of trade, depopulation, reduced productivity, and destruction of the normal exchange of knowledge around the Mediterranean and through Christian and Jewish societies, plus colonisation by Muslims---as also occurred in the conquest of Asia Minor.   The states of Byzantium, Bulgaria, Serbia...had reached a high level of economic and cultural development before the Muslim attacks.  The conquest of the Balkan peoples was disastrous and for centuries trammelled their normal economic and social development (Angelov p 463)  Yet it’s described as a blessing for the population (they had the chance to become Muslim) and we are fed lies of ‘peace’ and economic unity.   The Turks didn’t have a ‘higher culture’ or better civic organisation—they were semibarbarian tribes bent of pillage and war, enriching themselves with ‘booty.’(estates, slaves, money, jewels) and rendered fanatical by the dogmas of Islam (Angelov p 463, 464, 465)

The conquest of the Balkan Peninsular by the Turks meant not only the massive destruction of productivity, the depopulation of the occupied regions, mass enslavement, and forced colonization, but also the founding of a new feudal system.  This feudal system was the continuation, in a subsequent phase of development, of the Osmanli military feudalism that had been created in Asia Minor during the first half of the fourteenth century.  In essence, this system did not modify the feudal ties that existed in the Balkan states at the time when they were conquered by the Turks, but compared with them, the system was at an inferior, barbarous level, having as its foundation brutal coercion and terror, since the Muslims had the privilege of resorting with impunity to violence against the Christian population and of subjecting it to unlimited exploitation. (Angelov p 506)

Turkish invasion of Christian lands was a disaster for Balkan peoples

Even a brief look at the date list, part H in the slavery series, shows the violence and oppression by the Muslims!

Byzantine historian Georgius Pachymeres, a contemporary of the events in the 1262-82 invasion north of the meander, (Paphlagonia, Caria in Asia Minor) described the ruination of towns and monasteries, the fleeing population and the conversion of land into a ‘Scythian desert. ’  He notes indiscriminate massacres,  large scale enslavement, the merciless crushing of any resistance and the death of the entire male population where people refused to surrender. (Angelov p465, 466)

Other contemporary writers note the same acts of sadism and destruction throughout the conquest by the Turks and indeed on conquered populations until the 20th century.

From the beginning of their conquests (ie Asia Minor),   the emir’s family and clan/military leaders became the owners of vast tracts of land, slaves, towns and villages. The system of military fiefs (timaris) was developed.  Some soldiers received land but had to remain in the military.  Most however went to the rulers and military leaders.- one fifth went to the state/sultan just as Mohammad took a fifth for himself from the plunder and enslavement carried out by his crew.  (The Koran demanded that Mohammad got a fifth even if he wasn’t actually in the raid –how convenient!!)

The incessant military campaigns fulfilled the desires of all to spread Islam and gain their just rewards of slaves and land.   In depopulated areas, ‘slaves’ replaced local inhabitants in all areas of work/labour, and served in households and harems.  Selling slaves enabled the seller to purchase precious objects from elsewhere. 
Georgios Pachymeris 1242-c. 1310 one of the most important of the later Byzantine writers

Slaves were a source of ‘wealth’ for soldiers encouraging further conquest.  The 14th century Ottoman state had only a rudimentary economy with underdeveloped commerce and trades and money was rare.  (Angelov p 485-487).  Enslavement served to weaken nations as populations were depleted and moved.  Mass enslavements are documented.

The remaining populations were severely exploited peasants who laboured for others and were subjected to excessive taxes and fines. Similarly artisans were needed so, despite the routine massacres and deportations, the military was used to stop people fleeing and force them to remain.(Angelov p 470-471).  The feudal class of Turks learnt they needed to keep the peasants to benefit from their surplus value and become wealthy.   Muslim Turks ruled but were a minority population particularly in the Balkans where most of the population remained Christian.  Allowing people to remain Christian was not  ‘kindness’or ‘tolerance’, it was a practical and economic necessity as the non-Muslim population could be charged higher taxes ( the humiliating jizya or poll tax is more than the zakat –Durie p 169-178), extra fines and charges etc plus, any sign of rebellion could be met with death for the community or enslavement or forced mass movement or taking more children.   Hence ordinary people lived in fear and were reduced to a servile, destitute state without the means to resist under the repressive dhimmi laws while wealth went to their Muslim overlords  and their agents. (see articles on dhimmitude laws this site)

Battle of Kosovo 1389 - The battle of Kosovo was an important victory for the Ottomans. While losses were substantial, with both armies being virtually destroyed. on both sides and both sides lost their leaders, the Ottomans were able to easily field another army of equal or greater size, whereas Serbia could not.

Only during the brief period (1402-1413) of problems in the Turkish state did the Ottomans slow their enslavement but following 1413, taking slaves returned with a vengeance. (Angelov p 490). Eg 7,000 from Thessalonika in 1430 (Bulgaru p 567) In 1438, 60,000 Serbs were enslaved and taken to Anatolia (Sookhdeo p 268).  Sources suggest that in the few years between 1436-1442, some 400,000 people were seized in the Balkans.  Many of the captives died in forced marches towards Anatolia (Turkey) (Sookhdeo p 268).  Contemporary chronicles note that the Ottomans reduced masses of the inhabitants of Greece, Romania, and the Balkans to slavery eg from Moree (1460)-70,000 and Transylvania (1438) - 60,000-70,000 and 300,000-600,000 from Hungary and 10,000 from Mytilene/Mitilini on Lesbos island (1462) (Bulgaru p 567) and so it continued (see timeline part H)!

The vicious destruction of Constantinople in 1453 shows the religious zeal of the Muslims, their hatred of Christians, massacres, destruction and pillage and of course, the enslavement of 50,000-60,000 people! (see part H for details

Slave trading centres existed in many areas eg the Turkish state (Adrianople/Edirne) and Balkan Peninsula, Crete, Cyprus, Catalogna, Syria and Italy eg Ancona.  Slaves were shackled, marched and any lagging behind were killed (Bulgaru p 568)

Jobs for slaves:
Lovely boys and girls plus gold and silver objects were shared around as gifts between the sultan and high-ranking civil and military dignitaries (Angelov p 489)  Handsome and strong boy slaves were also sent to the barracks to become ‘janissaries.’

Describing the palace of Ottoman ruler Bayezid (1389-1402) in Brousse, historian Dorcas notes:

“there one could find carefully selected boys and girls, with beautiful faces, sweet young boys and girls who shone more brightly than the sun.  To what nations did they belong? They were Byzantines, Serbs, Walachians, Albanians, Hungarians, Saxons, Bulgarians, and Latins.   Each of them sang songs in his own language, although reluctantly.  He himself (the sultan) unceasingly gave himself over to pleasure, to the point of exhaustion, by indulging in debauchery with these boys and girls” (Angelov p 489, Bulgaru p567)

The writings of the procurator of the court of the sultans (1433-1458) describes the ‘favourite youths,’ Christians and others numbering 400, kept in special conditions and guarded and trained to become the special loyal dignitaries, intimate with the sultan.  And of course the harems of young girls..(Angelov p 494).   Hence a tiny number of enslaved boys had the chance to become rich by attacking and plundering their own people or others or acting as administrators, providing they remained in the sultan’s intimate circle.

Most slaves laboured-farm work, building, rebuilding, digging, or they entertained or cleaned or served or provided a sexual service –they did everything while their Muslim rulers totally exploited them. 

An enormous number of slaves flowed from the Crimea, the Balkans, and the steppes of West/central Asia into Islamic markets (Khan p 321, Bostom  p 93).  White males were often castrated, females bred Muslims.

Endless violence: A letter from Pope Eugene IV dated 1442 notes the Turkish conquest of Thrace, Macedonia, Illyria, Albania, Bulgaria, Slavonia and the taking of slaves who were bound in chains, and killed along the way if they could nolonger walk (Angelov p 491).

In response to Ottoman attacks on Byzantium, Emperor  Manuel II (1391-1425) noted his conversation with a Persian Muslim scholar (dialogue 7, 26 dialogues with a Persian), stating:

Show me just what Mohammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached ...god is not pleased by blood- and not acting reasonably is contrary to god’s nature.  Faith is born of the soul, not of the body.  Whoever would lead someone to faith needs the ability to speak well and to reason properly, without violence and threats...to convince a reasonable soul, one does not need a strong arm, or weapons of any kind, or any means of threatening a person with death... .(Sookhdeo p 256)

Remember the Muslim violence when Pope Benedict XVI quoted this in a lecture on the relationship between reason and faith, 12/9/2006, Germany.  I defy anyone to show me a ‘prophet’ more perverted, sadistic, violent, misogynist, racist or intolerant than Mohammad who slaughtered any who defied him or wanted to leave.

In 1396, the Ottoman sultan Bayezid I defeated a force of largely French Christian knights at Nicopolis (Bulgaria) and ordered that the 3000 who surrendered be decapitated:
“The next morning they were paraded before him, naked and in groups of 3 or 4.  The mass beheadings began early in the morning and continued through the day”.(Sookhdeo p 158)
Massacre of the Christian prisoners taken an the Battle of Nicopol, in the presence of the Ottoman Sultan Bayezid I. Jean Froissart, Chronicles fol. 255v, Flandres, Bruges 15th Century

In 1499 Sultan Bayezid II after his conquer of Methone (Greece) ordered: ‘the execution of all those who were 10 years or older; and so it happened.  They gathered their heads and bodies, put them together, and built a big tower outside the city, which can still be seen nowadays”   (Chronicle cited in Bostom p 619)

No, he wasn’t just copying his earlier namesake, both were following the Koran!  The Koran sanctions the beheading/throat slitting of infidels eg suras 47.4 (smite their necks) and 8.12 (smite over their necks)

And who can forget that great tale of Mohammad beheading all the males with pubic hair  (700-900) (nd one woman) from the last Jewish tribe in Medina after they surrendered to him for the crime of remaining neutral in a battle; plus the usual enslavement of women and children, taking of concubines and property (Ishaq p 464-466).

Armenians were beheaded in the 1894-96 massacres (Bostom p 671). 
Religiously sanctified beheading and throat slitting is big in Islam even today!    Beheading occurs in the Islamic world now  eg Saudi Arabia – where some 121 were beheaded in 2000, 75 in 2001, 50 in 2003 etc (Sookhdeo p 158); hostages have been beheaded and beheadings have also occurred in the west thanks to our Muslim immigrants.

Population transfers

Large-scale deportations and population transfers (surgun) accompanied the jihad campaigns of the Arabs, Seljuk and Ottoman Turks, and Safavides (Iran)  (Bostom p 626).  The practice removed recalcitrant groups, populated depopulated areas caused by Muslim attacks, and brought Muslims into areas to give support eg Turkmen from eastern Anatolia were moved and used as jihad warriors against Hungary and Austria and they were moved into Cyprus, Greece, and Serbia to help control Christian populations.   Muslims were moved into Albania.

Bayezid II

Armenia Christians, Orthodox Christians and Jews were forcibly settled in depopulated Constantinople-centre of Christian learning (taken 1453 –see date list for details) so the city could actually function and be fed.   This is claimed as a sign of ‘Islamic tolerance’ and particularly kindness to Jews but don’t ask why Constantinople was depopulated in the first place and don’t enquire too deeply about the actual lives of dhimmitude led by the non-Muslims.  We are told they were allowed to live with their own laws under the guidance of their patriarch.....there is no mention of the monumentally repressive dhimmitude laws (see articles on dhimmitude) that totally controlled them or the constant threat of death should they annoy a Muslim or the ban on open expression of their religion.   As for the 'patriarchs', they were in effect agents of the Islamic rulers who kept the non-Muslim population under control, stopped rebellion or complaint and extracted the heavy taxes for their Muslim rulers.  Hence people were detached from their family, country and history and subjected to total Islamic control and exploitation.

Unending Dhimmitude for the conquered people: (see articles on dhimmitude this site including laws)

Initially in some areas, vassals were used but eventually direct Ottoman rule generally occurred.  There were constant battles and uprisings (see date list part H).  Conquered people lived under the repression of Islam’s dhimmitude law and this continued into the 19th  (or later) century.  Many activities, occupations and trades were forbidden to Christians (Bostom p 66).  In Sarajevo in 1794, the Serbian Orthodox church warned people not to sing anywhere as the village was Turk! (Bostom p 68) Efforts by European powers to moderate the abuse of Christians and other non-Muslims, was met with stern resistance (eg 19th century).   In Islam, non-Muslims cannot be equals with Muslims.

The long lines deporting Armenians to the arid deserts of Der el Zor resulted in rapes, infant drownings, slashing of bodies, live in burials, torture, starvation and finally death.

The Greek revolution of 1821 was the culmination of the resistance to Muslim Ottoman domination which was: “characterised by  economic spoliation, intellectual decay and cultural retrogression........restrictions of all kinds, unlawful taxation, forced labour, persecutions, violence, imprisonment, death, abductions of girls and boys and their confinement to Turkish harems, and various deeds of wantonness and lust.......they defied every sense of human decency...(Vacalopoulos in Bostom p 69-70)

Efforts by European powers to abrogate the Ottoman dhimmi system weren’t implemented in any meaningful way between 1839 and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire after WW1.  It was noted that Muslim Turkey still regarded others as inferior and the fanaticism of the early days continued.   The 1860’s reports by British consuls (pals with Turkey!!) in the Ottoman Empire, reveal the continuing persecution of Christians, massive discrimination and judicial ‘imbalance.’   The Tanzimat reforms (1839-1876) were false eg the repressive, inequitable  ‘poll tax’ was simply replaced by a new tax at a higher rate for non-Muslims! (Encyclopaedia Britannica V 13, p 786 which also notes that ‘reforms’ were ‘signed’ at times when Turkey needed European support- see part H).  Turkish dhimmi laws may have been revoked on paper at the end of the 19th century, but the religiously supported attitudes and practices remained.  The reforms failed because of Islam:

As far as Muslims are concerned, any non-Muslim who failed to act submissively had no protection for his life, his family, his property etc which all became fair game for Muslims.  19th century Ottoman Grand vizier Mustafa Resid opposed the reforms claiming the complete emancipation of the non-Muslim subjects, appropriately destined to be subjugated and ruled, was entirely contradictory to the 600 year tradition of the Ottoman Empire.   He predicted a great massacre if equality was granted to non-Muslims!  (quoted in Durie p 159).

In Bosnia (and the Balkans in general)  in the 19th century extreme discrimination against Christians remained –the honour, property or lives of Christians weren’t safe and the law didn’t protect Christians (Sookhdeo p 268)

In 1804, the Ottoman Janissaries massacred Serbian leaders, the  ‘Massacre of the Serbia Knights,’ triggering an uprising against Turkish rule.(Durie p 158)

In 1850 - the sultan’s army put down resistance. Serbs and Croats continued under repressive dhimma regulations which were part of state legislation and an integral part of local political and economic conditions (Durie  p 185)

1876:  Ottomans’ massacre the Bulgarians:  Modern Bulgarian historians estimate 30,000 murdered, with 3,000 orphaned children, thousands of Bulgarians imprisoned or exiled and 60-80 villages destroyed and another 200 hundred plundered and 300,000 livestock  (cattle, sheep, goats) and countless personal goods taken as ‘booty’ from a defenceless population long exploited during centuries of oppressive  Ottoman rule.  A 1986 analysis found that the Ottomans seemed aware of the possible uprising and sent a variety of Muslim fighters not only against the rebels but against ordinary, unarmed civilians. Reports (1876) note that girls and women were stripped, gang-raped and usually killed, people were burnt alive, children ‘spitted’ on bayonets, pregnant women ripped open and their unborn baby killed...... (Bostom p 664-666)(see detail with eyewitness reports in date list part H.)

An Ottoman fatwa of 1915 –believed to be written by sheikh Shawish—entitled Aljihad (Holy war)-spells out in detail:

“the obligation to kill infidels, warns against befriending the foes of Islam, and demands Muslims arise to the holy war nomatter what it costs...war in secret –persecute and exterminate all unbelievers from the face of the earth; war by word of mouth –write and speak if more strident methods aren’t available;  physical war...fighters and money to fight..and those who assist or die in battle are promised special rewards in heaven....He notes the prophet’s (Mohammad) demands for assassinations and says every Muslim can use deadly weapons and cites instances today...and where unbelievers outnumber Muslims, fight the war DECEITFULLY as Mohammad did and suggests this for the Caucasus, Turkistan, India, Java...secret raids on others...outright war.   Muslims are told to arm and prepare and unite...and use politics ...and again, fight the unbelievers..”

More than 5,000 of the 7,000 inhabitants of the town of Batak, including women and children, were raped, slaughtered, beheaded or burned alive by Ottoman irregulars who left piles of dead bodies around the town square and church in 1876, giving start of the April Uprising. American journalist and war correspondent working for the New York Herald and the London Daily News, Januarius McGahan, who first described the Turkish atrocities in Bulgaria, gives eye-witness account of the aftermath some two months following the events. His complete work can be read here. Amazingly, Turkish history, as taught in schools today, fails to mention a word on the 500 years of genocide and systematic rape and torture of the Bulgarian people and my Turkish peers are quite ignorant of the facts and the history their forefathers wrote in innocent blood.

He claims his war isn’t against all unbelievers ie those who don’t fight (just rollover into dhimmitude or convert) or rule Muslims--but since Islam claims the world...(Bostom p 221-225)

For the Armenians the genocide of 1915 was the culmination of endless massacres and attempts at destruction as Muslim Turks took over their land and worked to completely obliterate them.  Massacres, marches, enslavement, rape, torture, pillage and burning preceded this horrendous death march that Turks (and weak western leaders) refuse to acknowledge even today.

Armenia was initially an area in West Asia, bordered by the Caucasus Mountains, the Black Sea, ‘Iran’, but now it is part of  the SW SovietUnion, East Turkey,  and NW Iran.
In the 7th century Arab incursions into Armenia started about 640 with Dvin sacked, 35,000 enslaved.  And raids continued (see part F for some accounts).  In the 11th century the Turks took over-  Vaspourakan was ravaged, and Ardzen , a wealthy city of 800 churches was plundered and torched  with 150,000 enslaved.   The Seljuk Turks then the Ottoman/Osmanli Turks carried out endless attacks.

Tragically also Shia Muslims from ‘Persia’ slaughtered, enslaved, pillaged, burnt and forced Armenians into long deadly marches even into the 17th century.

In  1894 -1896 Muslims attacked Armenian villages and massacred inhabitants (the Hamidian massacres).  Massacres first occurred in Sasun, Istanbul, Trebiznd, Erurum, Urfa.   The Armenians, already paying tribute to the Kurds, refused to pay further tribute to the Turkish authorities in Sasun.   Turkish troops, Kurds and the Muslim population slaughtered the Sasun Armenians, raped the females, dashed children to death and burnt down villages.  The Turkish commander Zeki Pasha was rewarded by the sultan (Bostom p 667).

Britain, France and Russia were upset and demanded reforms...the sultan pretended to accept watered-down reforms  with many paper promises – he needed help to stave off Russian interference re the Orthodox Christian ‘dhimmi’ populations of Greeks, Serbs, and Armenians and hoped for western support.

A series of organised massacres (beginning and ending with a bugle call) occurred throughout eastern Turkey in the Armenian areas with 50,000-100,000 killed and shops etc destroyed.(Bostom p 667- 669).  Preaching from mosques encouraged the attackers and promised them the rewards of Armenian property as allah decreed.

In Urfa, koranic verses were recited before people had their throats slit and women and children were burnt alive (8 thousand died) (Bostom p 669-670). 

Massacres also occurred at Ayintab, Birecik, and Severek in Aleppo Province: (Aleppo city today is in Syria just S of Turkish border).  The report of the British consul notes re Ayintab

“the butchers and tanners, with sleeves tucked up to the shoulders, armed with clubs and cleaves, cut down the Christians , with cries of ‘allahu akbar.’.....then when mid-day came they knelt down and said their prayers, and then jumped up and resumed their dreadful work......they fired the houses with petroleum.”..(Bostom p 670)

Soldiers and Muslims participated in the massacres at Birecik and Severek where the sexton and pastor were beheaded. (Bostom p 671)

In 1909, Armenians were massacred in Alana (S. Turkey) killing 15,000-30,000.  Assyrians and Greeks were also attacked.  Please read the article "Slaughter of  Christians in Asia Minor from the NYTimes 22/8/09 reproduced on this site 25/12/09 for the report of a witness to the aftermath -the sadism described by those who suffered it is trully distressing as is the utter destruction of villages.

1915-17:  Armenian genocide:  During WWI the ‘young Turks’ aimed to deport all Armenians from Anatolia to Mesopotamia—massacres, rape, kidnapping and looting accompanied the forced expulsion or DEATH MARCH along with starvation, illness, and even suicide.  Eyewitness accounts verify the genocide. 

Jemal Pasha was then to serve as minister of the Navy, the governor of Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine, and led the military campaigns along the Suez Canal against the British and their allies. He was known to the Arabs by Jemal al-Saffah, Jemal the Butcher, for the number of nationalist Arab leaders executed by him (hanging) in both Beirut and Damascus. The two martyrs’ squares of Beirut and Damascus were named after his victims. After WWI, he briefly fought the British in Afghanistan. He was later gunned down by the Armenians in retaliation for the Armenian massacre perpetuated by the triumvirate of the young turks consisting of Jemal Pasha, Enver Pasha and Talaat Pasha.

The plight of the Armenians under centuries of vicious Islamic persecution is so utterly tragic.  The fact that any Armenian Christians survive is a miracle.

The Balkan wars occurred in 1912-13 with the Ottomans losing Crete and Balkan states....

Due to the alliance of western Europeans with the Ottomans against Russian and Austrian designs, we have been subjected to propaganda that Jews and Christians were fine under Islamic rule eg writings by Bernard Lewis—which whitewashed the real, deeply horrifying truth (Durie p 207) so clearly revealed in writings from contemporaries to the events.

Repressed history

Failure to mention the historic truth of Islam’s bloody and repressive jihad and subjugation of others plays out in politics today.   Bosnia president Alija Izetbegovic who claims Islamic tolerance, states in his Islamic declaration of 1970, that there cannot be peace or coexistence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic social and political institutions...and that the Islamic movement must take power...destroy the existing non-Islamic power and build a new Islamic one!! (Ye’or Islam and Dhimmitude p 202)  Yet the lie of Islamic tolerance lives on!

“to anyone with some knowledge of the centuries long history of Serbian resistance to Ottoman domination, it was obvious that the return of any form of Islamic power in Bosnia-Herzegovnia would be rejected by Orthodox Christian Serbs.   The five centuries of ‘harmonious and peaceful co-existence’ under Islamic rule, cited by Bosnian president Alija Izetbegovic, belong to the theological dogma of the perfection of the sharia and the dhimma.

For the Orthodox Serbs, however, this same period is considered one of  massacre, pillage, slavery, deportation, and exile of the Christian population.  In their eyes it was a regime which found its justification in the usurpation of their land and denial of their rights; hence it represented the EXACT OPPOSITE of a peaceful, multicultural coexistence based on a system of social and political justice.............during WWII Axis forces invaded Yugoslavia and sponsored the creation of a Nazi Croat state (Ustashi) with which many Bosnian Muslims cooperated.....they formed military corps including the 13th (Hanjar) Waffen SS Division, some of which were trained in FRANCE.  Early in the war, these Muslim slavs actively participated in the genocide of hundreds of thousands of Orthodox Serbs, Jews and gypsies.  Even their German allies were shocked by the bestial atrocities committed then in Yugoslavia’
(Ye’or Islam and dhimmitude p 201)

The Muslims tried to pass blame to the Catholic Croats.  Kosovo and Bosnia –Herzegovina are the Orthodox Serbian homeland.   To Ye’or the war between Bosnian Muslims and Orthodox Serbs results from repressed history....with the Canadian UN commander noting the hatred between the two groups.  Tragically the Bosnian ‘Muslims’ have forgotten their own history.

Bosnia was a battlefield or staging ground for attacks elsewhere eg Hungary.  Bosnian Christians were forbidden from a wide array of commercial activities and trades –the only legal market/trading day was Sunday –and this was still the case into the late 19th century!  As Christians were excessively taxed (jizya or poll tax is many times the zakat, plus other taxes) and forced into hard labour they fled to the mountains...In Herzegovina, in the 19th century, the vizier taxed the dead for 6 years after their demise and pregnant women claimed to be carrying boys were also made to pay!  Muslims moved in and Bosnia became ‘Muslim’ while the restrictions imposed on dhimmis remained into the 19th century including clearly designated and marked clothing, towels (in bath houses), no singing even outside,  and a myriad of acts of humiliation for the non-Muslims eg Catholics and members of the Serbian Orthodox Church.  (Bostom p 66-68)

The oppression of Christians was monstrous...in an effort to live, some ‘converted’ to Islam and coercive mass conversion persisted for centuries –certainly through the 16th.   When Muslims celebrated some victory, Christians (Albanians, Greeks, Slavs) were forced to covert (Bostom p 68)
Ottoman slave soldiers - Janissaries ca. 1583

– Others resisted and fought at great cost.  These fighters are heroes that gave Europe its freedom from the first peasants and town dwellers who fought to the last armies eg ‘Gates of Vienna’ where Polish king Jan Sobieski (ruled 1674-96) not only held out and fought the Muslims, weakening them so they were turned back from the Gates of Vienna (still with 80,000 slaves) but built a major European coalition that worked to destroy the Ottoman empire into the next century.

Kosovo and Albania (the original Albanians fought hard) along with Bosnia rolled over to Islam or were colonised by Muslims becoming ‘Muslim’ states that together form an ongoing threat in Europe and provide a gateway for Muslim entry along the Adriatic Coast.  Kosovo in particular provides a recent example of an Islamic land grab (aided by the dopey and self destructive Europeans and America).  The Kosovo liberation army was al-Queda trained, the claimed ‘genocide’ against Albanians in Kosovo was disproved in the Hague, though there was ethnic cleansing of  Serbs, Jews, Roma and other non-Albanians from Kosovo--which is close to becoming  an ethnically and religiously pure state of Saudi-financed mosques !

Kosovo is connected to the terrorist attacks in Madrid and London.  According to Defence & Foreign Affairs Daily and German intelligence, the explosives used in both bombings came from Kosovo.  The Greek Kathimerini news service reported that the missile fired on the U.S. embassy in Athens (2007) ‘appears to have come from Kosovo.’  Don’t forget WWII:   Once the Germans took over Albania and Kosovo, Albanians volunteered to form the SS Skanderbeg Division (along with Bosnians), which committed atrocities against Serbs and Jews in Kosovo and helped round up Jews who died in concentration camps. In more recent history, Albanians pushed the Jews and  non-Albanians OUT after NATO occupied Kosovo in 1999.  Today, Albania and Kosovo are virtually Jew free (Gorin, 2007) and Christian Serbs in Kosovo?

Hence the forced ‘conversion’ and Muslim colonisation of what is today’s Bosnia, Albania and Kosovo has already had recent devastating consequences for others and they pose a deadly danger in Europe today.

From the beginning, the violence of the Muslims was obvious and the conquered people fought back. (see the date line part H).  It should be noted that initially the Albanians fought hard against their Islamic attackers into the late 15th century.  Does Albania, Bosnia, Kosovo still have people who prefer freedom to Islamic servitude?

To the end of the 19th century, where the Turks had control, Christians could be accused of anything...and killed.  There was no liberty of conscience.  Religious persecution wa
King of Poland Jan III Sobieski

s NEVER absent.  Justice applied a double standard and depended on Muslim judges and crowds.   The claimed policy of religious tolerance by the Ottomans is NOT supported by the facts (Constantelos in Bostom p 68-69)

Isn’t it time the history of those crushed by Islam was truly told from the view of Islam’s victims.  The Greeks, Bulgarians, Romanians, Serbs, Hungarians, and Poles fought long and hard at great cost for freedom from Islamic rule.  Some just rolled over and became Muslim or suffered too much Islamic colonisation.  Why do Turks and others follow a ‘white’ Arab supremacist religion that enslaved them?

Further ‘Turkish’ Muslim writings in the 20th century show the open hostility of Islam to others eg:

“A Christian...lost to all sense of human dignity.  ....the meanest expression of human degradation; to speak to him would by a humiliation for our intelligence and an insult....the presence of such miscreants among us is the bane of our existence...their doctrine is a direct insult.....contact with them is a defilement of our bodies; any relation with them a torture to our souls....and goes on to explain how they will take our weapons etc given through our own agency... (Progressive young Turk in Parisian Muslim review 1912 cited in Bostom p 74)

Nothing has changed!  Even today there are attempts by powerful groups to obliterate all Christians (Ego, 2009).  Islam cannot change as Muslims must follow its evil text.   Muslim Turkey today returns to fanatical Islam and works to obliterate all others.   The INSANITY of allowing Turkey into the EU should be obvious to any who value freedom and know their history!!

Muslim Crimean Tartars:  (1463-1694)  while sources are incomplete, researcher Alan fisher ‘s conservative tabulation  of the slave raids against the Christian populations of southern Poland and Muscovite Russia indicate that at least 3 MILLION people-men, women, children were enslaved during the ‘harvesting of the steppe.’  Numbers could be huge eg from Moscow (1521), 800,000 were taken and from Valynia (1676), 400,000 were taken.

He notes the fast, long march in chains to the Crimea to avoid cassocks who freed the slaves.  Those who couldn’t keep up were killed –often given to Tartar youths to stone, throw into the sea or kill in any way they liked.   The mortality rate was high. (Bostom p 91-92)

Crimean tartars also enslaved and sold Ukranians, Armenians, Circassians, Georgians, Bulgarians, Slavs and Turks. 

Charge of Polish heavy cavalry - Husaria. Husaria played an important role at the battle of Vienna 1683

Polish proverb:

‘Oh how much better to lie on one’s brier, than to be a captive on the way to tartary.” (Bostom p 92)

Slavery is a humiliation that arises from infidelity. (Bostom p 89)

In reality, where Muslim Turkish rule existed, dhimmitude with all its horrendous repressive laws prevailed (see articles on dhimmitude..this site).  Dhimmis were inferior and kept inferior in every conceivable away in accordance with sharia.

A Brief history of the Seljuk and Ottoman Turks and Tartars:
As it expanded east, the Islamic empire collided with the Turkic tribes of Central Asia constantly moving towards the Middle East.  Many were enslaved , others ‘converted’ eg Turks, Tartars, Turkomen, even Mongols and Afghans were subjugated.  Turkish slaves and mercenary troops administered and guarded Arab Islamic controlled provinces (9th century on).  Their Arab conquerors liked Turk ‘bravery’ and acquired them in droves as slaves.  Turkish slave mercenaries numbered 70,000 and their tyranny, lawlessness and power grew. In the 9th and 10th centuries, “Turkish soldiers made and murdered caliphs at their pleasure”  yet they were still slaves who paid tribute to the sultan although they set up independent sultanates eg Egypt (Lal p 533).

Crimean Tatars

They became important frontline soldiers of Islam’s expansion into the Byzantine Empire, leading to the rise of the Seljuk sultanate (Mid 11th century).  The Seljuks attacked Byzantine  Anatolia particularly in the 11th century under Alp Arslan (1064-1072) and ‘colonised’ the area.  Armenia was conquered and the Seljuks took control of much of Asia Minor.   The Byzantines controlled Constantinople and the Asia Minor coastlands.  Turkic slave soldiers (Mamelukes) from Egypt were important in fighting the crusades.  Ghengis Khan , ruler of the Mongols invaded Muslim areas in Central Asia, and Iran, reaching Baghdad in 1258.  An Egyptian ‘mameluke’ army stopped the Mongols in Syria.(Sookhdeo p227-228)  Following Ghengis Khan’s death, his sons controlled vast groups and areas. Some quickly, others more slowly converted to Islam---why not when you love to kill, rape, enslave and plunder, Islam is the perfect religion because now you can claim you do it all for god and your soldiers can be tricked into thinking that god gives them booty (people and property) and that if they die they will have a huge brothel in paradise...yes that would sell well to the barbaric hordes!   Hence areas in Central Asia, Russia and Iran became ‘Islamic.’ 

The Seljuks split into independent principalities in Asia Minor.  Osman (1288-1326) (Othman or Ottoman to us) ruled one of these principalities and declared independence of Seljuk rule around 1300.  They were dedicated jihardists constantly fighting the infidel-(Sookhdeo p 231)  --and happily taking the booty allah promised while putting into practice the wonderful example of Mohammad (slavery, slaughter, forced conversion, subjugation, extortion..).

Ottoman power increased until they totally subjugated Asia minor (including Seljuk controlled areas and challenges from other Muslim Turk groups in Asia Minor) and spread out in their jihad through the Balkans and Europe, east and central Asia, the middle-east and north Africa.

The religious fanatic Timurlane (ruled 1370-1405) was a Muslim Turkic-Mongol who attacked Anatolia, Syria, Central Asia, and north India but died before attacking China.  His Timurid Empire lasted to 1506. He battled the Ottoman leader Bayezid (their bid for power overlapped in certain areas) and won in 1402—but left Anatolia to the Ottomans and didn’t interfere in the Ottoman’s European empire.  (more on Timur/Tamerlane in article on Indian slavery).

By the 17th century there were 3 large Muslim empires-the sunni Ottoman empire in Asia Minor, the Middle East, north Africa and Europe;  the Shi’a Safavid Empire in Iran and parts of central Asia and the Caucasus, the sunni Mughal Empire in northern India. (Sookhdeo p 228)

The detail of the Ottoman barbarity across Asia Minor, the Balkans and the Byzantine world can be read in the date list  part H in this series on slavery.  Constantinople was violently taken in 1453 (see list).  Their unending brutality to the Armenians beggars belief. They also conquered Syria, Egypt, Anatolia, Mesopotamia and most of North Africa (not Morocco).  They tried to take Central Europe, TWICE reaching the Gates of Vienna-1529, 1683!!   (Sookhdeo p 232)

Ottomans remained in power for centuries.  They used slave troops-first the kapikullari, then the Janissaries (Yenicheri) made up of slaves taken in war or children taken under the Devshirme system to maintain their control for many centuries.   Children are taken because they can easily be converted into Islam—‘an act of mercy’ for according to Muslims we are all members of the perverted, sadistic, racist, intolerant, totalitarian ideology of Islam.  Allowing the conquered people to bring children up outside Islam is a ‘concession’ while jihad provides an ‘opportunity’ through enslavement and conversion to Islam for children (and adults) to be made Muslim!  Under sharia, such ‘converts’ of course, cannot be in the care/custody of non-Muslims (see Durie  p 162-163).

As Muslim power failed, they were compelled to enter into treaties with Europe. Eg 17th, 19th century. (Sookhdeo p 231-233)

Conclusion

The repressed history of the persecution of others in Asia Minor and the Balkans, particularly by the jihadi Ottomans must be told for its ramifications continue today.

As in Western Europe, the Muslims brought destruction on many fronts.   The writings of both Muslim and non-Muslims at the time show the claimed ‘blessing’ brought to the population who now lived in ‘peace and tranquillity’ under Islamic rule is a LIE.   Such writers show the massive destruction of material goods, the ruination of entire cities and cultivated areas, massacres, deportations, enslavement, sadism  ...a general and lasting decline in productivity, social/cultural destruction, retrogression and the hindrance of the normal evolution and transfer of knowledge of the society and the imposition of dhimmitude.  The Turks were semibarbarian and backward and developed a brutal feudal system of economic exploitation.

European advances in political and military organisation, science, technology, etc were unknown to the Ottomans (Encyclopaedia Britannica p 783).  Muslims lived off the back of others via exploitative taxes.  Greeks and Armenians controlled 80% of Ottoman finance, industry and commerce in 1914.  If it hadn’t been for Mustafa Kemal (Attaturk),  post WW1 who removed Islam from public life and worked to modernize the nation, Turkey would have remained extremely backward—even in 1945, it’s literacy rate had RISEN to 29% as a result of educational reforms!!! (Encyclopaedia Britannica v 13 p 792).  While there are some Turks who are nominally Muslim and who support secularism and religious freedom the reality is that Turkey is returning to fanatical Islam which has only hatred, repression and slavery for others.   Will it once again attempt to conquer Europe?  If the EU admits Turkey they will dangerously flood Europe with Muslims, offer a path for further Muslim entry and bleed others dry by soaking up all resources---after all, non-Muslims are there to work and provide for the Muslim overlords!  Will Islamic Turkey aim to control the whole Islamic world (or the whole world?)—in the 19th century the Arab Wahhabis mocked the Ottoman’s (Encyclopaedia Britannica v13 p 785).

*Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 179:   Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Turks; ...

Turks were the slaves of Arab Islam;  Why do they adhere to Islam?

Time to ensure everyone knows the terrifying truth of Islam’s brutal past so it isn’t repeated in the future.



Absolute corruption. Putin's Russia is the most corrupted country in the world.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Absolute corruption. Putin's Russia is the most corrupted country in the world.


Russia’s economy may not have much to boast of these days, but it has produced one of the world’s largest crops of billionaires. Only the U.S., Germany and Japan have more. Considering the modest size of the Russian economy these days, Russia may well have the highest billionaire-to-GDP ratio in the world.

How can this be, in a nation that until recently has been on the decline?

Russia’s flawed transition from communism to a market economy in the 1990s was one of the most mishandled reforms in history. The country’s GDP declined by 41%, vast swaths of the economy were simply wiped out and the majority of the population was plunged into poverty. In the midst of this chaos a small group of insiders (nick-named the “oligarchs”) figured out how to buy the bulk of the country’s natural resources from the state at nominal prices.
The 1990s asset grab did not make the oligarchs instant billionaires-only potential ones. Potential wealth has been transformed into real wealth only in the last several years, when many of the oligarchs forswore their old pirate-capitalist ways and began paying attention to building shareholder value.

The Panama Papers leak contained more than 11.5 million documents from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which revealed widespread tax avoidance.

More information was expected to be publicly released in the coming days, which Professor Henry said is a good opportunity for further analysis.
"So far it's been used by the ICIJ consortium of, you know, about 370 journalist have had access just to the data for a year ago or so; now it's going to be opened up," he said.

"And I think that will be very valuable because there's a lot of new kind of analysis to be done.

"As good as the journalists are, you know, they're just not as familiar with all of the intricacies is the 214,000 companies that were involved here."
Professor Henry has called for an international commission to investigate global tax avoidance and capital flight.

"If one Panamanian law firm with just 500 employers, $42 million of revenue can produce this kind of information, you know, think of what revelations about many of the other players in the world including some of the top banks would show."

More than $12tn (£8tn) has been siphoned out of Russia, China and other emerging economies into the secretive world of offshore finance, new research has revealed, as David Cameron prepares to host world leaders for an anti-corruption summit.

A detailed 18-month research project has uncovered a sharp increase in the capital flowing offshore from developing countries, in particular Russia and China.

The analysis, carried out by Columbia University professor James S Henry for theTax Justice Network, shows that by the end of 2014, $1.3tn of assets from Russia were sitting offshore. The figures, which came from compiling and cross-checking data from global institutions including the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations, follow the Panama Papers revelations of global, systemic tax avoidance.

Chinese citizens have $1.2tn stashed away in tax havens, once estimates for Hong Kong and Macau are included. Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia – all of which have seen high-profile corruption scandals in recent years – also come high on the list of the worst-affected countries.

Henry, a former chief economist at consultancy McKinsey, told the Guardian his research underlined the fact that tax-dodging was not the only motivation for using tax havens – criminals and kleptocrats also made prolific use of their services to keep their wealth secret and their money safe.

Putin’s Russia Has Built World’s Largest Jewish Museum in Moscow.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Putin’s Russia Has Built World’s Largest Jewish Museum in Moscow.


Moscow’s Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center is like no other Jewish Museum. First, there’s its size: according to its organizers, it’s the largest Jewish history museum in the world. Then, there are the exhibits. A Russian news site called it “Jewish Disneyland.” One exhibit in the massive, state-of-the-art institution virtually displays Jewish historical clothing on the observer and transports viewers back in time to important locations in Jewish history. But what really sets the Center apart is not its size or its contents. It’s the location, in the heart of the capital of Russia, and the warm affection it receives from the Russian president.

Vladamir Putin gave the Center a large donation and he has been personally involved with the Center for over half a decade. Israeli President Shimon Peres, who attended the opening ceremony, said of Putin and Russia, “I came here to say thank you. Thank you for a thousand years of hospitality.”

Other Jews, interviewed by the New York Times, similarly gushed with enthusiasm and praise. Russia’s chief rabbi (and a close ally of Putin’s) said Jews “have never felt as comfortable in Russia as today.” Aleksandr A. Dobrovinsky, a lawyer, who teared up when he saw an exhibit on Odessa, said, “What the president has done, I simply tip my hat to him.”

Putin’s relationship with the international Jewish community has warmed over the years to outright affection. Russia, the Times notes, wants Jews to come back.

As the Jewish press glowingly reports, Putin invites the Chabad rabbis to the Kremlin a minimum of once a month, and queries them in detail about the mood of the Jewish community in Russia:


On the 7th of February Russian President Vladimir Putin received the Head Rabbi of Russia (FEOR) Berl Lazar in the Kremlin … As Berl Lazar reported, the Russian President was extremely interested in questions concerning the life of Russia’s Jewish community … In Berl Lazar’s opinion, the president was interested to find out that at present Jews feel much freer in Russia, that they can make the decision of whether to stay or whether to leave freely, inasmuch as they feel support from the government … But the main thing, in Rabbi Lazar’s opinion, is that “the President has a healthy understanding of Russia’s future and the role of religion in society.” (International Jewish News, No. 10, February 2002) and On the 19th of March the President of Russia Vladimir Putin met with representatives of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia in the Kremlin …

Putin spoke of how important it is to set up a“insurmountable barrier” to xenophobia and religious extremism, and noted the Jewish people’s contribution to Russian affairs. The President spoke about the address of the Jewish community of Russia to the USA on the matter of repeal of the Jackson-Vanik amendment, since which the “process is developing positively” … President of the Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS and Chairman of the FEOR oversight committee Lev Leviev was also present at the Kremlin meeting, along with rabbis from a number of Russian cities. (International Jewish News, No. 11, March 2002)

What is reportedly the world’s largest Jewish museum has opened in Moscow.

Israeli President Shimon Peres (who is on an official visit to Russia) joined Jewish and Russian leaders for the gala inauguration Nov. 8 of the Russian-Jewish Museum of Tolerance.

“At this emotional moment I can see generations of my people before my very eyes and I carry them with me,” Mr. Peres said. “My parents were born in Russia. In my home we spoke Yiddish, Hebrew, and Russian….This museum is an eloquent declaration of the principles of tolerance toward people and their freedom. Here we can see man part with the past and move into the future with hope.”

The museum occupies a converted bus garage that was turned over to the Jewish community in 1999. The German architectural fir Graft Lab carried out the transformation. The museum design firm Ralph Appelbaum Associates carried out the exhibition design.

According to the Christian Science Monitor:
The nearly 50,000 sq.-ft., $60-million center uses interactive media technologies, recreations ofshtetl (small Jewish town) life, and 13 hours of videotaped personal testimony to tell the story of Russia’s Jewish community. It focuses on the past 175 years, which saw Russian Jews move from the Czarist-era Pale of the Settlement (an area of Russia where Jews were allowed permanent residence) into mainstream Russian and Soviet society, face near extinction when the Nazis invaded the USSR, and later chafe for decades under official Soviet restrictions that kept them from many areas of higher education and important state jobs.

Writes the New York Times:
Touch the screen in one exhibit in this vast building and a visitor can appear in a mirror dressed in the garb of a 19th-century blacksmith, or a trader or a “representative of the intelligentsia.” Tap a Torah in a virtual synagogue, and a cantor’s voice rings in the air. In a virtual Odessa, one can sit down in an interactive cafe to chat with long-dead writers. [...] The displays here mingle brighter historical material, about thriving village life and the high status of Jews in the Soviet intellectual firmament, with darker chapters.

In the Odessa cafe, for example, the viewer can tap on a table to answer the question, “If your store were destroyed by a pogrom, what would you do? A) Give up and emigrate to the West, B) Stay in my hometown and try to rebuild the store, C) Join a Jewish self-defense league and prepare for the next pogrom or, D) I am still in shock.” The Internet television channel Dozhd described the museum, created by the New York-based designer Ralph Appelbaum, as a “Jewish Disneyland.”

Fake German nazis. Zionist and Kremlin takeover of German NPD.

The National Democratic Party of Germany has continued with its political makeover, completing a highly successful conference so far removed from its previous NS image. Party made radical change and now the German NPD is presenting itself as a friendly centrist party, one, which wants to be elected and seeks to draw votes from all camps, including the left. Rhetorically, the party can hardly be distinguished from the CDU [Christian Democratic Union] and the AfD [Alternative for Germany].

Frank Franz: “We are not racist, and we do not hate refuges per se. In fact, we stand for humanist values. We want to take Germany out of NATO and start proper relations with Russia.”

Npd Leader Says ‘neo-nazism is Not Our Business;’ Disavows Anti-israel Views.

The head of the right-wing National Democratic Party which has been called neo-Nazi in the past, said at a press conference here today that “neo-Nazism is not our business. We have nothing to do with it.” Adolf Von Thadden, the party chairman also, in effect, disavowed the anti-Israel views which his party was said to hold. He was asked by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspondent, in light of his criticism of Soviet policy, whether the NPD did not indeed share Soviet policy on the Middle East. Mr. Von Thadden replied: “You are mixing up the Deutsche National Zeitung with us. We are not of the same opinion as the Soldatenzeitung.” His reference was to the Deutsche National und Soldaten Zeitung, an extreme nationalist newspaper that has espoused Nazi philosophy and attacked Israel on many occasions.

The Kremlin is also suspected of being behind a Russian-sponsored “peace summit” designed to explain Moscow’s current stance in Ukraine. The summit was held at a luxury hotel in Berlin last weekend, and attended by two members of the “neo-Nazi” NPD, Mr Gauland and the veteran SPD German detente politician Egon Bahr, in a gesture that embarrassed the SPD leadership.

In his state of the nation address, Putin implicitly compared the west to Hitler, and said it was plotting Russia’s dismemberment and collapse. In March Putin defended his land-grab in Crimea by arguing he was rescuing the peninsula from Ukrainian “fascists”. A few weeks later a motley group of radical rightwing European populists turned up in Crimea to watch its hastily arranged “referendum”.

In the Kremlin’s pocket.

The Kremlin has also discovered that the western political system is weak, permeable and susceptible to foreign cash. Putin has always believed that European politicians, like Russian ones, can be bought if the money is right. According to US diplomatic cables leaked in 2010, Silvio Berlusconi has benefited “personally and handsomely” from energy deals with Russia; the former German chancellor Gerhard Schröder, Putin’s greatest European ally, sits on the board of the Nord Steam Russian-German gas pipeline.

Since at least 2009 Russia has actively cultivated links with the far right in eastern Europe. It has established ties with Hungary’s Jobbik, Slovakia’s far-right People’s party and Bulgaria’s nationalist, anti-EU Attack movement. Here, political elites have become increasingly sympathetic to pro-Putin views.

According to Political Capital, a Budapest-based research institute which first observed this trend, the Kremlin has recently been wooing the far-right in western Europe as well. In a report in March it argued that Russian influence in the affairs of the far right is now a “phenomenon seen all over Europe”. Moscow’s goal is to promote its economic and political interests – and in particular to ensure the EU remains heavily dependent on Russian gas.

In EU parliament, it's not only Le Pen and members of the National Front who have advocated Putin. Leader of the British right-wing UK Independence Party, Nigel Farage, and MPs of the "Alternative for Germany" party have also made Russia-friendly comments.

Far-right and rightwing British politicians, meanwhile, have also expressed their admiration for Russia’s ex-KGB president. In March Nigel Farage named Putin as the world leader he most admires, and praised the “brilliant” way “he handled the whole Syria thing”. In 2011 the BNP’s Nick Griffin went to Moscow to observe Russia’s Duma election. Afterwards he announced that “Russian elections are much fairer than Britain’s”. Last week Griffin tweeted praise for Russia Today, the Kremlin’s English-language TV propaganda news channel: “RT – For People Who Want the Truth”.

In Soviet times the KGB used “active measures” to sponsor front organisations in the west including pro-Moscow communist parties. The Kremlin didn’t invent Europe’s far-right parties. But in an analogous way Moscow is now lending them support, political and financial, thereby boosting European neo-fascism.

In part this kinship is about ideology or, as Political Capital puts it, “post-communist neo-conservatism”. The European far right and the Kremlin are united by their hostility to the EU. Since becoming president for the third time in 2012, Putin has been busy promoting his vision for a rival Eurasian Union. This is an alternative political bloc meant to encompass now-independent Soviet republics, with Moscow rather than Brussels as the dominant pole.

Foreign radical leftist repetition and dissemination of official Russian government views about Ukraine coincided in 2014 with the formation of a pro Russian anti-EU, extreme right/far left alliance in the European Parliament. Both groups consider Putin Ukraine’s savior from “western imperialism.” The pro Kremlin EU extreme leftists allied with the EU extreme rightists offer no explanation of why pro capitalist EU fascists and neo nazis are worthy allies while pro capitalist Ukrainian fascists and neo Nazis are not. Besides bone fide fascists, except those of the Ukrainian variety, pro Kremlin radical leftists are also in bed with another of the Kremlin’s allies, fundamentalist Christian Evangelicals.

James Clapper, the US Director of National Intelligence, has been instructed by the US Congress to conduct a major review into Russian clandestine funding of European parties over the last decade.

The US move came as senior British government officials told The Telegraph of growing fears that “a new cold war” was now unfolding in Europe, with Russian meddling taking on a breadth, range and depth far greater than previously thought.

“It really is a new Cold War out there,” the source said, “Right across the EU we are seeing alarming evidence of Russian efforts to unpick the fabric of European unity on a whole range of vital strategic issues.”

The US intelligence review will examine whether Russian security services are funding parties and charities with the intent of “undermining political cohesion”, fostering agitation against the Nato missile defence programme and undermining attempts to find alternatives to Russian energy.

Just look at NDP members on G+, they share video with marching Russian army, during "victory day" celebration with a red communist flags and this video presents them as a future liberators of Europe. https://plus.google.com/112280786677780577489/posts/XjnkBATx3E7

Putin's Russia is very weak.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Putin's Russia is very weak.


At present, the Western Zionist media is Putin’s PR team. They want us to believe that neosoviet putin’s Russia is the world’s superpower and real alternative to the United States and NATO. I won’t defend current American government, but you should know that Jews always wanted to create fake opposition and alternative in order to fully control the situation. Putin as well as Trump and Mari Le Pen play the role of the fake opposition to NWO.

However, despite the media noise, on most objective grounds, Russia is hardly a great power. It has some very old nuclear weapons, but ultimately these are of little practical value and most of the rockets with nuclear warheads are already dismantled. Continued rearmament depends on money, and Russia’s economy is dependent on oil that is now selling for bargain-basement prices. Russia’s economy is the 13th largest in the world, just between Australia and Spain, about half the size of France’s, about a fourteenth of the USA’s. Even before the value of the ruble collapsed, Russian military spending was around one-seventh of America’s.

What the Kremlin does have is the will to take risks, ignore the rules, and hope that the other side is more sensible, more cautious, more willing to make concessions than it is to call Russia's bluff.

In the main, this has worked so far. But Putin’s bad-boy geopolitics and military postures are wasting assets already beginning to prove to be liabilities.

The Russian defense budget as it stands is unsustainable. Already this year it has been cut by 5 percent, and a range of future projects are being quietly scaled down or pushed back.

Even with the cut, the defense budget is bleeding the Kremlin of resources needed for economic diversification and the public services needed to pacify an increasingly disgruntled population.

Precisely because Putin has been so successful at talking up his unpredictability and aggressive capabilities.

Of course, West needs to take the Russian challenge seriously. But that also means not giving Putin more credibility and authority than he deserves.

By our panics and hyperbole, inspired by Zionist media not only are we in effect encouraging him to consider more adventures, we are giving him greater global clout than the leader of a declining, impoverished, underpopulated country stuck between a prosperous Europe and a rising China deserves.

Were we to be more laid back, less inclined to jump every time he rattles his saber, in the short term it might infuriate him, encourage some new act of brinkmanship, although he has few safe options now and faces powerful states and alliances alert to his usual tricks. But in the long term, if he finds himself being treated not as a fearsome threat but an annoying (and sometimes even laughable) upstart, he may come to realize that his current antics are not a shortcut to great power status.

Kremlin State Media: ‘Holodomor Never Happened, but Holocaust Denial is a crime.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Kremlin State Media: ‘Holodomor Never Happened, but Holocaust Denial is a crime.



Welcome to the wacky, and increasingly maniacal, world of Kremlin double think. When Vladimir Putin passed a law in 2014 proscribing “Holocaust denial” and “Nazi revisionist tactics,” the ex-KGB thug’s controlled media shamelessly announced the new thought control measures as if it were a great victory.

Here is one article from Sputnik News (formerly Voice of Russia) – an agency “wholly owned and operated by the Russian government, which was created by a Decree of the President of Russia on December 9, 2013″ – announcing the passing of the new law.

Here is some of the unrestrained Kremlin blather that passes itself off as legitimate news commentary in that pro-censorship article:

The passing of the [Holocaust denial] law shortly before the May 9th Victory Day celebrations (a bittersweet day when Russians remember the tens of millions who fell fighting the scourge of nazi Germany and joyfully celebrate the victory of Russia, the Red Army and the USSR over the nazi fascists) and against the backdrop of the events in Ukraine (where the US installed and backed fascist junta has mobilized the army and is employing armed paramilitary nazi Right Sector extremists to engage in what can only be described as a nazi “war of extermination” against those who refuse to be ruled by the degenerate followers of nazi SS stooge Stephan Bandera and grant legitimacy to the junta which violently overthrew the democratically elected government in February) has received a lot of attention worldwide, in particular with nazi glorifiers, white supremacists and Jewish groups.

Here is another Sputnik article from 2008, proudly reporting on a Russian senator’s call for Russia and Israel to “join forces to fight against Holocaust denial theories and attempts to glorify Nazism.”

And then comes the grand-slam: a 2015 article published on Sputnik, written by Ekaterina Blinova, which argues that the Holodomor – Stalin’s deliberately induced famine-genocide in Ukraine during the 1930s – never took place; that the whole thing is an invention of “Nazi propaganda” and proliferated by the vast media and academic apparatus controlled by or sympathetic to Nazism, according to the delusory Zionist-sanctioned revisionism of Blinova.

Holocaust revisionism banned, pro-Stalin Holodomor revisionism published in Russian state-run media.

Organized Jewry, of course, has no objection to attempts to revise downwards the scope, scale and intentionality (and even outright denial) of the Holodomor; firstly because they wish to maintain the primacy of Holocaust dogma, and secondly because Jews were Stalin’s principal agents of the Red Terror during that epoch, hence why Israeli politician Shimon Peres told the Ukrainians on a state visit to just “forget history.”

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency, in a 2009 report, writes of how a

Jewish group in Ukraine is objecting to a criminal case brought over the “Great Famine” committed in the 1930s. The nation’s security service is pressing the case against a list of former Soviet officials accused of committing the Holodomor, which caused the deaths of millions in Ukraine in 1932-33. Most of the names on the list were Jewish.

It couldn’t be more clear where Putin and Russia stand on historical truth: firmly on the side of the fabled victor’s history, which in large part serves to advance Zionist interests. “Revisionism” is only allowed when it suits the Kremlin’s image and propaganda (such as the “Holodomor never happened” canard, peddled by communists globally), otherwise it must be banned, says the “glorious leader” and “crusader against the New World Order.”



Chechen muslim caliphate in Russia.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Chechen muslim caliphate in Russia.


Russian forces have fought two brutal wars against insurgents in Chechnya but the region has since been subdued and awarded a  very high level of autonomy under islamist Kadyrov's control.Since 2001, to keep the peace, the Russian government has flooded tiny Chechnya (1 million residents) with cash, including at least fourteen billion dollars for postwar reconstruction. Today, more than eighty-five per cent of Chechnya’s budget comes from Moscow.

The hardline muslim leader Ramzan Kadyrov appointed by President Vladimir Putin to maintain order in the turbulent Chechen region has created his own caliphate that may one day unleash an Islamic State-style jihad against Russia. In 2004 President of Russia Vladimir Putin conferred Russia's highest award, the Hero of the Russian Federation, on Ramzan Kadyrov. In 2009 former Chechen terrorist was also promoted to the rank of Major General of Russian police.





He is the son of former Chechen President Akhmad Kadyrov, who was assassinated in May 2004.Ramzan Kadyrov was a separatist of Chechnya, he had supported the call for jihad against the Russians during the First Chechen War, only to switch sides and declare allegiance to Moscow in the Second. He also admitted personal involvement in executions of local Russian people during First Chechen War. In February 2007, Kadyrov replaced Alu Alkhanov as President, shortly after he had turned 30, which is the minimum age for the post. He was engaged in violent power struggles with Chechen government warlords Sulim Yamadayev and Said-Magomed Kakiev for overall military authority, and with Alu Alkhanov for political authority.

After he became president, Kadyrov immediately proceeded to implement elements of Sharia law, such as declaring a ban on gambling and alcohol production. In August 2005, Ramzan declared that "Europe's largest mosque" would be built in place of the demolished ruins of Grozny's shattered downtown. In February 2006, responding to the publication of the Mohammed cartoons, he accused the Danes of "spying" and being "pro-terrorist". He also banned Danish citizens from entering Chechnya, effectively banning activity of the Danish Refugee Council, the largest NGO working in the region. Kadyrov is quoted as saying, "That cartoonist needs to be buried alive."

Ilya Yashin, a prominent figure in the People's Freedom Party or PARNAS, said the Kremlin-backed leader of largely Muslim Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, had flouted Russian laws and amassed military power while his fighters carried out terrorist attacks against opponents in Russia and abroad.

"In the last few years, our own local Islamic state has formed on Russian territory," Yashin wrote in a report titled "A Threat to National Security".
He said a separate "Chechen Caliphate" lived by its own traditions and laws while receiving dozens of billions of roubles in subsidies from the Russian national budget. "Not one politician or department is able to guarantee today that the Islamic state created in Chechnya by Kadyrov ... will not over time become a new "Islamic State" ready to declare jihad on Russia," Yashin wrote.

The report is the latest in a series of increasingly hostile confrontations between Russia's opposition and the hardline Chechen leader, a former rebel fighter turned Kremlin loyalist and one of Putin's most vocal bannermen. Islamic State fighters in Syria have threatened attacks in Russia and Moscow fears that Chechen fighters among the militant group's ranks could return to launch assaults on Russian soil.


Last year, on February 27th, Boris Nemtsov—a former deputy prime minister, who had become one of Putin’s best-known opponents - was walking on a bridge near the Kremlin when an assassin approached from behind and shot him.

The arrests came relatively fast: in the first week of March, the F.S.B. detained five suspects. All were ethnic Chechens; two were arrested in Moscow, and three in Ingushetia, a small republic bordering Chechnya. Security forces said that as they moved in to arrest another suspect in Grozny he blew himself up with a grenade.

Attention quickly focussed on the alleged triggerman: a decorated thirty-three-year-old Chechen officer named Zaur Dadaev, a former deputy commander of Sever. The timing of Dadaev’s departure from Sever was curious: his resignation letter was dated December, 2014, but it was processed on February 28th, the day after Nemtsov’s murder. At first, investigators implied that Dadaev and his suspected accomplices were enraged by Nemtsov’s support for the French cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo, but that theory fell apart after it came to light that his killers had begun trailing him in the fall of 2014, months before the attack in Paris. “Dadaev doesn’t really have his own motives; he’s not a bird of very high altitude, as we say,” Vadim Prokhorov, Nemtsov’s lawyer, told me. “It’s clear that he takes orders from someone else.”

Nemtsov’s supporters, including his family, immediately pointed to Kadyrov and his inner circle. Two days after Dadaev’s arrest, Kadyrov took to Instagram in Dadaev’s defense. “I knew Zaur as a genuine patriot of Russia,” he wrote. Dadaev was one of the “most fearless and brave warriors in his regiment . . . genuinely devoted to Russia, ready to give up his life for his motherland.”

In February, Kadyrov released a video of opposition leader Mikhail Kasyanov in the cross-hairs of a sniper's rifle, a move seen by many as a death threat following the murder of Boris Nemtsov, another prominent Russian opposition figure, last year. Yashin said Chechen authorities were obstructing the investigation into Nemtsov's murder, a sign of Kadyrov's growing influence and power.


Over the years, Kaydrov has denied accusations that he ordered the killing of any of his critics.

In recent years, Kadyrov spoke in favour of honour killings and polygamy, virtually banned the sale of alcohol in Chechnya, and enforced a compulsory Muslim dress code on Chechen women. Those who ignored the policy were publicly shamed and physically abused. Rights groups say Kadyrov's paramilitary forces terrorize, abduct, and kill innocent civilians claiming they were Islamic rebels, and almost a dozen of his political enemies and critics, including two women, have been gunned down since his ascension to power in the mid-2000s. In 2009, Kadyrov stated his approval of honor killings, based on the belief that women are the property of their husbands.

Kadyrov has fashioned Chechnya in his own image. The republic is now governed by diktats inspired by Sharia jurisprudence and Kadyrov’s personal interpretation of a traditional Chechen code of behavior. In 2010, after vigilantes drove around Grozny firing paintballs at uncovered women, Kadyrov said that he wanted to “give an award” to the men. He has displayed a contradictory attitude toward honor killings, condemning the practice while placing it within Chechen tradition. “Here, if a woman does not behave properly, her husband, father, and brother are responsible,” he said in a 2008 interview. “According to our tradition, if a woman fools around, her family members kill her. . . . So let women not wear shorts.” Last November, the Kadyrov administration issued an order requiring all Chechen police officers to read three hundred thousand prayers to the Prophet Muhammad in the course of the month.

One of the more sensitive subjects is polygamy, given that it is unequivocally prohibited by Russian law, but Kadyrov and other Chechen officials have repeatedly come out in favor of the practice. In 2011, Kadyrov told a Russian newspaper reporter that he was looking for a second bride, but couldn’t find a woman beautiful enough. “If you have love, then you can take up to four wives,” he explained, citing Sharia law. Last May, a fifty-seven-year-old district police chief took a Chechen teen-ager—she was said to be seventeen—as his second wife. The ceremony became a short-lived sensation in Russian politics, and Kadyrov weighed in, calling it “the marriage of the millennium.”

Russian federal troops are practically invisible in Chechnya, confined to a single base east of Grozny. The uniformed men with automatic rifles in the capital and in smaller towns are Chechen forces, not Russian, and their loyalties lie with Kadyrov, not with Moscow. Between twenty and thirty thousand men are estimated to serve in units under Kadyrov’s unofficial control. As Kadyrov has accrued power, Moscow has come to matter less and less in Chechnya. “Federal law does not work at all,” Svetlana Gannushkina, a human-rights activist who often works on cases in Chechnya, told me. “But, at the same time, there is no homegrown Chechen system of law. So what is there, then? One thing, just one law, which can be formulated in two words: Ramzan’s order.”

Fighters identifying themselves as kadyrovtsy popped up in eastern Ukraine throughout 2014, where they took part in decisive battles in support of pro-Russian rebels. A former officer of Sever (“North”), a Chechen special-forces unit under Kadyrov’s informal authority, told me that he once recognized another retired member of the unit in a YouTube clip filmed in Donetsk, the capital of rebel-held eastern Ukraine. Onscreen, a Chechen gunman tells the camera that he has come to “defend the interests of the Russian Federation.” The former officer told me that when he saw the video he exclaimed, “Oh, he’s one of ours!”

In December, 2014, Kadyrov summoned thousands of armed men from Chechnya’s various security forces together in Grozny’s soccer stadium. He delivered a rousing speech. “We say to the entire world that we are combat infantry of Vladimir Putin,” he said. Russia may have its regular military, but “there are tasks that can be solved only by volunteers, and we’ll solve them.” The rally both proved Kadyrov’s unique loyalty and reminded Putin of Kadyrov’s strength: if the Kremlin were to reconsider its bargain with Kadyrov, tens of thousands of armed men might have something to say about it.


Russian authorities have decided to pay pensions to Israel residents.

Respective agreement signed during recent visit of the Israel's Prime Minister's to Moscow. The agreement provides the transition to the principle of proportional payments for seniority gained by the residents of Israel in Russia and the RSFSR.

Former residents of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR) who had moved to Israel before 1992 and don't have a Russian citizenship will acquire the right to receive pensions from the Russian Federation after the treaty enters into the force.

Such the Kremlin's decision was perceived ambiguously by ordinary Russians, who have faced a significant deterioration of the financial situation, cutting salaries and pensions in last years. Recall also the incident, that took place during recent visit of the Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to the occupied Crimean peninsula, where during the meeting with locals he answered "there is no money, so good luck!" to an old lady, who was complaining him about extremely small pensions.

The agreement to provide Russian pensions to residents of Israel who previously lived and worked in Russia and the USSR is confirming a special nature of relations between the two countries, the speaker of the upper house of the Russian parliament said Monday.

The proposed Russian-Israeli agreement on providing Israelis formerly possessing Russian citizenship with Russian state pensions would double the number of Russian pension recipients to 60,000.

"As you know, the agreement [on pensions] is reached. We have left nothing unattended. I think this is a very important agreement between Russia and Israel, which restores social justice and reaffirms the special nature of Russian-Israeli relations," Valentina Matvienko said at a meeting with Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage Minister Zeev Elkin.

The deal is set to be signed during Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Russia dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between the countries. The prime minister is visiting Russia between Monday and Wednesday.

The agreement makes provisions for those who worked in the Russian Federation, or its predecessor, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, to receive Russian state pensions regardless of whether they have retained their citizenship.

Russian Jews migrated to Israel from the Soviet Union in large numbers throughout the 1970s when Soviet authorities lifted the ban on Jewish emigration. The next wave of Jewish emigration took place after 1989. Currently, Israel's Russian Jewish population amounts to around 1,000,000, according to Israeli government statistics.

20 questions for those who support Putin’s aggression in the Eastern Ukraine

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at 20 questions for those who support Putin’s aggression in the Eastern Ukraine


Viktor Kadochnikov, a Russian blogger, poses 20 questions that he suggests those who support Vladimir Putin’s aggression in Ukraine should be asking themselves. If they do and if they are honest, they won’t be able to support the Kremlin leader’s policies any more.

Below, in summary form, are the 20 questions he says they should be confronted with.

1. “Why are Donetsk and Luhansk ‘Novorossiya,’ but when a passenger jet crashes in its territory, it is instantly transformed into Ukraine?”

2. “Mercenary activity is a crime in Russia. Why don’t ‘the militia men’–who come from Russia and are paid for combat–not fall under this provision of the law?”

3. “How can one explain the fact” that Moscow has brought criminal charges [exclusively] against Russian citizens who are fighting for Ukraine but not against Russians who are fighting in Ukraine against the Ukrainian government?

4. Do you consider the use by the [Russian] ‘militias’ of civilians as human shields something deserving of respect?

5. “The war is costing Ukraine several million dollars a day. It is logical to assume that it isn’t costing its opponent any less. Do you really think that Russia isn’t giving the so-called Novorossiya military and financial help?”

6. “Why is it that everywhere where the so-called militias ‘liberate,’ there is war? … Why are the so-called [Ukrainian] ‘punitive operations’ only where there are ‘militias’?”

7. “Why must Ukraine hand over to [Russian] band formations territories that legally belong to it? If the Ukrainian military doesn’t want to do this, does that make them punitive detachments?”

8. Given the number of times Vladimir Putin has changed his story on Crimea, “is it possible to believe him now when he asserts that there are no Russian forces in the Donbas? If so, then why?”

9. How would you react if some American said–as Igor “Strelkov” Girkin has–that without their invasion, nothing much would have occurred?

10. The Russian defense ministry has promised to provide five million rubles to the families of soldiers who “have died at the Ukrainian border. Are you not interested in why [the details of their deaths] are being hidden from you?”

11. Given that Moscow forcefully disperses opposition meetings and imprisons its participants on made-up charges, how do you think Vladimir Putin would react if some group seized administration buildings and proclaimed the creation of its own statehood on Russian territory? Would Putin take measures or perhaps sit down with the terrorists “to negotiate” as he demands that Kyiv do?

12. “Why does every Ukrainian patriot, who wears Ukrainian symbols, sings the Ukrainian hymn, supports the unity of his country and speaks against separatism automatically become a Banderite and fascist? Under what article of the [Russian Federation] criminal code?”

13. Are all pieces of evidence of the presence of Russian troops in Ukraine–even those offered by Russian soldiers themselves–forgeries produced in the West?

14. “Comrade Putin frequently has declared that Russia is not a side in the conflict and that he personally respects and supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine. If that is really so, then why hasn’t Russia closed the border from its side so that volunteers (and not only they) from the Russian Federation do not have the opportunity to cross it in order to fight against the territorial integrity of Ukraine?”

15. The Russian government last August explained the appearance of Russian troops in Ukraine by saying that they had crossed the border by mistake. “Do you really believe this? What would be your reaction if NATO soldiers ‘accidentally became confused’ somewhere near Vladivostok?”

16. “Why has Russia not once condemned the ‘Novorossiya’ militants and not once called on them to lay down their arms first? At the same time, officials of the Russian Federation have frequently called on Ukrainian soldiers to lay down their arms and leave the Ukrainian Donbas to the bandits. Why all [Russian] federal media gives positive coverage to only one side?”

17. How do you explain the fact that the forces of the ‘DNR’ and ‘LNR,’ hard-pressed as they were last August, suddenly “opened a new front in the direction of Mariupol and seized Novoazovsk? Who did this in fact: the forces of ‘the militias,’ whom the Ukrainian army had successfully contained or Russian soldiers without uniform markings who supposedly weren’t there?”

18. Why does Belarus, a state aligned so “close to Russia, support the territorial integrity of Ukraine and not agree with Putin’s imperialist plans? Why does Lukashenka, Putin’s ally in the Customs Union believe that there is no fascism as a mass phenomenon in Ukraine and say that it is necessary to destroy the militants fighting against Ukraine?”

19. Do you believe Russian officials when they say that the 12 Pskov paratroopers did not die fighting in Ukraine but rather “by chance” died from heart attacks, suicides and accidents all at the same time?

20. “What are the ‘Novorossiya’ militants fighting for and what is the use of what they are doing?”


Web of Kremlin lies. Putin’s Russia is taking online trolling to the new level.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Web of Kremlin lies. Putin’s Russia is taking online trolling to the new level.


IN 1991, when Soviet Communism collapsed, it seemed as if the Russian people might at last have the chance to become citizens of a normal Western democracy. Vladimir Putin’s disastrous contribution to Russia’s history has been to set his country on a different path. And yet many around the world, through self-interest or self-deception, have been unwilling to see Mr Putin as he really is. Vladimir Putin’s epic deceits have grave consequences for his people and the outside world.

The shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, the killing of 298 innocent people and the desecration of their bodies in the sunflower fields of eastern Ukraine, is above all a tragedy of lives cut short and of those left behind to mourn. But it is also a measure of the harm Mr Putin has done. Under him Russia has again become a place in which truth and falsehood are no longer distinct and facts are put into the service of the government. Mr Putin sets himself up as a patriot, but he is a threat—to international norms, to his neighbours and to the Russians themselves, who are intoxicated by his hysterical brand of anti-Western propaganda.

The world needs to face the danger Mr Putin poses. If it does not stand up to him today, worse will follow.

Mr Putin has blamed the tragedy of MH17 on Ukraine, yet he is the author of its destruction. A high-court’s worth of circumstantial evidence points to the conclusion that pro-Russian separatists fired a surface-to-air missile out of their territory at what they probably thought was a Ukrainian military aircraft. Separatist leaders boasted about it on social media and lamented their error in messages intercepted by Ukrainian intelligence and authenticated by America.

Russia’s president is implicated in their crime twice over. First, it looks as if the missile was supplied by Russia, its crew was trained by Russia, and after the strike the launcher was spirited back to Russia. Second, Mr Putin is implicated in a broader sense because this is his war. The linchpins of the self-styled Donetsk People’s Republic are not Ukrainian separatists but Russian citizens who are, or were, members of the intelligence services. Their former colleague, Mr Putin, has paid for the war and armed them with tanks, personnel carriers, artillery—and batteries of surface-to-air missiles. The separatists pulled the trigger, but Mr Putin pulled the strings.

The enormity of the destruction of flight MH17 should have led Mr Putin to draw back from his policy of fomenting war in eastern Ukraine. Yet he has persevered, for two reasons. First, in the society he has done so much to mould, lying is a first response. The disaster immediately drew forth a torrent of contradictory and implausible theories from his officials and their mouthpieces in the Russian media: Mr Putin’s own plane was the target; Ukrainian missile-launchers were in the vicinity. And the lies got more complex. The Russian fiction that a Ukrainian fighter jet had fired the missile ran into the problem that the jet could not fly at the altitude of MH17, so Russian hackers then changed a Wikipedia entry to say that the jets could briefly do so. That such clumsily Soviet efforts are easily laughed off does not defeat their purpose, for their aim is not to persuade but to cast enough doubt to make the truth a matter of opinion. In a world of liars, might not the West be lying, too?

An army of Russian Internet trolls is using cyberspace to promote Russia and wage war against opposition groups and the West.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime has taken control of the traditional media in Russia: TV, radio and newspapers. As Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu has stated, the Kremlin sees the mass media as a ‘weapon’. Now Russia’s leadership is trying to take control of social media too, and for this massive operation a new information warfare tool has been mobilised—an army of fake social media Putin-fans, known as ‘trolls’.

The Kremlin, which has waged a massive disinformation campaign aimed at legitimizing Russia's annexation of Crimea and support for separatists in eastern Ukraine, has employed so-called "troll armies" to invade online territories armed with pro-Moscow rhetoric.

A June article by Max Seddon of BuzzFeed reported the Kremlin was spending millions of dollars to pay English-speaking Russians to promote President Vladimir Putin and his policies in U.S. media like Fox News broadcasting andThe Huffington Post and Politico news sites. Trolls are reportedly expected to manage multiple fake accounts and post on news articles 50 times a day, often with sentiments as simplistic as "Putin makes Obama look stupid and weak!"

In order to promote its narrative, the Kremlin has adopted a two-fisted strategy, unleashing its troll armies even as it tightens Internet restrictions at home. On August 1, Russia enacted controversial new legislation aimed at muzzling social media, the last bastion of the country's embattled opposition and a free flow of information about the war in Ukraine.

Anton Nosik, a popular Russian blogger and programmer who is sometimes referred to as the "father of the Russian Internet," says the Kremlin is falling back on a time-honored strategy in its propaganda war on Ukraine. But this time, he says, the stakes are higher than ever before. (BuzzFeed reports that at least one trolling company—Internet Research Agency in St. Petersburg—is expected to spend more than $10 million in 2014 alone.)

Comments were already serving as a well-financed Kremlin instrument of war against the opposition, even five years ago," he says. "So what's going on now is nothing new. But what's absolutely clear is that now they're spending more money on Ukraine than they ever spent against Alexei Navalny, or Ekho Moskvy,Kommersant, Gazeta.ru"—Russian media actors who have been targeted by the Kremlin in the past—"and all the rest."

Kristina Potupchik is probably kicking herself right now," he adds, referring to the blogger, now seemingly retired, who for years led trolling efforts by the pro-Kremlin youth group Nashi. "In her day, of course, there wasn't nearly the budget for Internet pollution as they have now."

Russia’s campaign to shape international opinion around its invasion of Ukraine has extended to recruiting and training a new cadre of online trolls that have been deployed to spread the Kremlin’s message on the comments section of top American websites.

Plans attached to emails leaked by a mysterious Russian hacker collective show IT managers reporting on a new ideological front against the West in the comments sections of Fox News, Huffington Post, The Blaze, Politico, and WorldNetDaily.

The bizarre hive of social media activity appears to be part of a two-pronged Kremlin campaign to claim control over the internet, launching a million-dollar army of trolls to mold American public opinion as it cracks down on internet freedom at home.

Foreign media are currently actively forming a negative image of the Russian Federation in the eyes of the global community,” one of the project’s team members, Svetlana Boiko, wrote in a strategy document. “Additionally, the discussions formed by comments to those articles are also negative in tone.

Like any brand formed by popular opinion, Russia has its supporters (‘brand advocates’) and its opponents. The main problem is that in the foreign internet community, the ratio of supporters and opponents of Russia is about 20/80 respectively.”

The documents show instructions provided to the commenters that detail the workload expected of them. On an average working day, the Russians are to post on news articles 50 times. Each blogger is to maintain six Facebook accounts publishing at least three posts a day and discussing the news in groups at least twice a day. By the end of the first month, they are expected to have won 500 subscribers and get at least five posts on each item a day. On Twitter, the bloggers are expected to manage 10 accounts with up to 2,000 followers and tweet 50 times a day.

They are to post messages along themes called “American Dream” and “I Love Russia.” The archetypes for the accounts are called Handkerchief, Gay Turtle, The Ghost of Marius the Giraffe, Left Breast, Black Breast, and Ass, for reasons that are not immediately clear.

According to the documents, which are attached to several hundred emails sent to the project’s leader, Igor Osadchy, the effort was launched in April and is led by a firm called the Internet Research Agency. It’s based in a Saint Petersburg suburb, and the documents say it employs hundreds of people across Russia who promote Putin in comments on Russian blogs.

Osadchy told BuzzFeed he had never worked for the Internet Research Agency and that the extensive documents — including apparent budgeting for his $35,000 salary — were an “unsuccessful provocation.” He declined to comment on the content of the leaks. The Kremlin declined to comment. The Internet Research Agency has not commented on the leak.

Definitively proving the authenticity of the documents and their authors’ ties to the Kremlin is, by the nature of the subject, not easy. The project’s cost, scale, and awkward implementation have led many observers in Russia to doubt, however, that it could have come about in any other way.

What, you think crazy Russians all learned English en masse and went off to comment on articles?” said Leonid Bershidsky, a media executive and Bloomberg View columnist. “If it looks like Kremlin shit, smells like Kremlin shit, and tastes like Kremlin shit too — then it’s Kremlin shit.”

Despite efforts to hire English teachers for the trolls, most of the comments are written in barely coherent English. “I think the whole world is realizing what will be with Ukraine, and only U.S. keep on fuck around because of their great plans are doomed to failure,” reads one post from an unnamed forum, used as an example in the leaked documents.

The trolls appear to have taken pains to learn the sites’ different commenting systems. A report on initial efforts to post comments discusses the types of profanity and abuse that are allowed on some sites, but not others. “Direct offense of Americans as a race are not published (‘Your nation is a nation of complete idiots’),” the author wrote of fringe conspiracy site WorldNetDaily, “nor are vulgar reactions to the political work of Barack Obama (‘Obama did shit his pants while talking about foreign affairs, how you can feel yourself psychologically comfortable with pants full of shit?’).” Another suggested creating “up to 100” fake accounts on the Huffington Post to master the site’s complicated commenting system.

WorldNetDaily told BuzzFeed it had no ability to monitor whether it had been besieged by an army of Russian trolls in recent weeks. The other outlets did not respond to BuzzFeed’s queries.

Some of the leaked documents also detail what appear to be extensive efforts led by hundreds of freelance bloggers to comment on Russian-language sites. The bloggers hail from cities throughout Russia; their managers give them ratings based on the efficiency and “authenticity,” as well as the number of domains they post from. Novaya Gazeta, Russia’s only independent investigative newspaper,infiltrated its “troll farm” of commenters on Russian blogs last September.

Russia’s “troll army” is just one part of a massive propaganda campaign the Kremlin has unleashed since the Ukrainian crisis exploded in February. Russian state TV endlessly asserts that Kiev’s interim government is under the thumb of “fascists” and “neo-Nazis” intent on oppressing Russian-speaking Ukrainians and exerts a mesmerizing hold on many in the country’s southeast, where the channels are popular. Ukraine has responded by banning all Russian state channels, barring entry to most Russian journalists, and treats some of the more obviously pro-rebel Russian reporters as enemy combatants.

The trolling project’s finances are appropriately lavish for its considerable scale. A budget for April 2014, its first month, lists costs for 25 employees and expenses that together total over $75,000. The Internet Research Agency itself, founded last summer, now employs over 600 people and, if spending levels from December 2013 to April continue, is set to budget for over $10 million in 2014, according to the documents. Half of its budget is earmarked to be paid in cash.

Two Russian media reports partly based on other selections from the documents attest that the campaign is directly orchestrated by the Kremlin. Business newspaper Vedomosti, citing sources close to Putin’s presidential administration,said last week that the campaign was directly orchestrated by the government and included expatriate Russian bloggers in Germany, India, and Thailand.Novaya Gazeta claimed this week that the campaign is run by Evgeny Prigozhin, a restaurateur who catered Putin’s re-inauguration in 2012. Prigozhin hasreportedly orchestrated several other elaborate Kremlin-funded campaigns against opposition members and the independent media. Emails from the hacked trove show an accountant for the Internet Research Agency approving numerous payments with an accountant from Prigozhin’s catering holding, Concord.

Several people who follow the Russian internet closely told BuzzFeed the Internet Research Energy is only one of several firms believed to be employing pro-Kremlin comment trolls. That has long been suspected based on the comments under articles about Russia on many other sites, such as Kremlin propaganda network RT’s wildly successful YouTube channel. The editor of The Guardian’s opinion page recently claimed that the site was the victim of an “orchestrated campaign.”

Russian-language social networks are awash with accounts that lack the signs of real users, such as pictures, regular posting, or personal statements. These “dead souls,” as Vasily Gatov, a prominent Russian media analyst who blogs at Postjournalist, calls them, often surface to attack opposition figures or journalists who write articles critical of Putin’s government.

The puerility of many of the comments recalls the pioneering trolling of now-defunct Kremlin youth group Nashi, whose leaders extensively discussed commenting on Russian opposition websites in emails leaked by hackers in 2012. Analysts say Timur Prokopenko, former head of rival pro-Putin youth group Young Guard, now runs internet projects in the presidential administration.

“These docs are written in the same style and keep the same quality level,” said Alexei Sidorenko, a Poland-based Russian developer and net freedom activist. “They’re sketchy, incomplete, done really fast, have tables, copy-pastes — it’s the standard of a regular student’s work from Russian university.”

The group that hacked the emails, which were shared with BuzzFeed last week and later uploaded online, is a new collective that calls itself the Anonymous International, apparently unrelated to the global Anonymous hacker movement. In the last few months, the group has shot to notoriety after posting internal Kremlin files such as plans for the Crimean independence referendum, the list of pro-Kremlin journalists whom Putin gave awards for their Crimea coverage, and the personal email of eastern Ukrainian rebel commander Igor Strelkov. None of the group’s leaks have been proven false.

In email correspondence with BuzzFeed, a representative of the group claimed they were “not hackers in the classical sense.”

“We are trying to change reality. Reality has indeed begun to change as a result of the appearance of our information in public,” wrote the representative, whose email account is named Shaltai Boltai, which is the Russian for tragic nursery rhyme hero Humpty Dumpty.

The leak from the Internet Research Agency is the first time specific comments under news articles can be directly traced to a Russian campaign.

Katarina Aistova, a 21-year-old former hotel receptionist, posted these comments on aWorldNetDaily article.

Kremlin supporters’ increased activity online over the Ukraine crisis suggests Russia wants to encourage dissent in America at the same time as stifling it at home. The online offensive comes on the heels of a series of official laws and signals clearly suggesting Russia wants to tighten the screws on its vibrant independent web. In the last 30 days alone, Putin claimed the internet was and always had been a “CIA project” and then signed a law that imposes such cumbersome restrictions on blogs and social media as to make free speech impossible.

“There’s no paradox here. It’s two sides of the same coin,” Igor Ashmanov, a Russian internet entrepreneur known for his pro-government views, told BuzzFeed. “The Kremlin is weeding out the informational field and sowing it with cultured plants. You can see what will happen if they don’t clear it out from the gruesome example of Ukraine.”

Gatov, who is the former head of Russia’s state newswire’s media analytics laboratory, told BuzzFeed the documents were part of long-term Kremlin plans to swamp the internet with comments. “Armies of bots were ready to participate in media wars, and the question was only how to think their work through,” he said. “Someone sold the thought that Western media, which specifically have to align their interests with their audience, won’t be able to ignore saturated pro-Russian campaigns and will have to change the tone of their Russia coverage to placate their angry readers.”

Pro-Russian accounts have been increasingly visible on social networks since Ukraine’s political crisis hit fever pitch in late February. One campaign, “Polite People,” promoted the invasion of Crimea with pictures of Russian troops posing alongside girls, the elderly, and cats. Russia’s famously internet-shy Foreign Ministry began to viciously mock the State Department’s digital diplomacy efforts. “Joking’s over,” its Facebook page read on April 1.

Other accounts make clear attempts to influence Russian-speaking Ukrainians in the country’s restive southeast. Western officials believe many of the Twitter accounts are operated by Russian secret services. One was removed after calling for and celebrating violent attacks on a bank owned by a virulently anti-Putin Ukrainian oligarch.

“This is similar to media dynamics we observed in the Syrian civil war,” said Matt Kodama, an analyst at the web intelligence firm Recorded Future. “Russian news channels broke stories that seemed tailored-made to reinforce pro-Assad narratives, and then Syrian social media authors pushed them.”

Other documents discuss the issues the Russian commenters run into when arguing with the regular audience on the American news sites, particularly the conservative ones. “Upon examining the tone of the comments on major articles on The Blaze that directly or indirectly cover Russia, we can take note of its negative direction,” the author wrote. “It is notable that the audience of the Blaze responds to the article ‘Hear Alan Grayson Actually Defend Russia’s Invasion of Crimea as a Good Thing,’ which generally gives a positive assessment of Russian actions in Ukraine, extremely negatively.”

But praise can be as problematic as scorn. “While studying America’s main media, comments that were pro-Russian in content were noticed,” the author wrote. “After detailed study of the discussions they contained, it becomes obvious: the audience interprets those comments extremely negatively. Moreover, users of internet resources assume that the comments in questions were either written for ideological reasons, or paid for.”

The documents align with the Kremlin’s new attention to the internet. Putin, who swiftly monopolized control over television after coming to power in 1999 and marginalized dissent to a few low-circulation newspapers, largely left the “Runet” alone during his first two terms in power, allowing it to flourish as a parallel world free of censorship and skewed toward the educated urban middle class. Dmitry Medvedev, Putin’s protégé who was president from 2008–12, made a show of embracing social media, but it never sat well with officials and Putin supporters. The gulf between Medvedev’s transparency drive and Russia’s Byzantine bureaucracy’s reluctance to change only highlighted his impotence, earning him the nickname “Microblogger” for his small stature.

“In the best case they looked funny, in the worst, their actions exposed their real motives,” said Katya Romanovskaya, co-author of KermlinRussia, a popular parody account mocking Medvedev’s clumsy efforts. “Twitter is an environment where you can instantly connect with your audience, answer direct questions, and give explanations — which Russian officials are completely incapable of. It goes against their bureaucratic and corrupt nature.”

The current internet crackdown comes after protests by middle-class Muscovites against Putin’s return to the presidency in early 2012, which were largely organized on Facebook and Twitter. All but a few officials have since abandoned the medium and many did so en masse last fall, raising suspicions they did so on Kremlin orders.

“Putin was never very fond of the internet even in the early 2000s,” said Andrei Soldatov, a Russian investigative journalist who specializes in security services and cyber issues. “When he was forced to think about the internet during the protests, he became very suspicious, especially about social networks. He thinks there’s a plot, a Western conspiracy against him. He believes there is a very dangerous thing for him and he needs to put this thing under control.”

Last month, the deputy head of the Kremlin’s telecommunications watchdog said Twitter was a U.S. government tool and threatened to block it “in a few minutes” if the service did not block sites on Moscow’s request. Though the official received a reprimand (as well as a tongue-lashing on Facebook from Medvedev), the statement was widely seen as a trial balloon for expanding censorship. Twitter complied with a Russian request for the first time the following Monday and took down a Ukrainian nationalist account.

A new law that comes into effect in August also forces bloggers with more than 3,000 followers to register with the government. The move entails significant and cumbersome restrictions for bloggers, who previously wrote free of Russia’s complicated media law bureaucracy, while denying them anonymity and opening them up to political pressure.

“The internet has become the main threat — a sphere that isn’t controlled by the Kremlin,” said Pavel Chikov, a member of Russia’s presidential human rights council. “That’s why they’re going after it. Its very existence as we know it is being undermined by these measures.”

Kremlin troll army. Russian web of lies.

Strategy documents leaked by an anonymous Russian hacker imply that Kremlin has been recruiting an army of Internet trolls to spread his propaganda on website comment sections, Buzzfeed reports.

“Foreign media are currently actively forming a negative image of the Russian Federation in the eyes of the global community,” one of the group members, Svetlana Boiko, wrote in a strategy document. “Additionally, the discussions formed by comments to those articles are also negative in tone.”

“These docs are written in the same style and keep the same quality level,” said Alexei Sidorenko, a Poland-based Russian developer and net freedom activist. “They’re sketchy, incomplete, done really fast, have tables, copy-pastes — it’s the standard of a regular student’s work from Russian university.”

The group that hacked the emails, which were shared with BuzzFeed last week and later uploaded online, is a new collective that calls itself the Anonymous International, apparently unrelated to the global Anonymous hacker movement. In the last few months, the group has shot to notoriety after posting internal Kremlin files such as plans for the Crimean independence referendum, the list of pro-Kremlin journalists whom Putin gave awards for their Crimea coverage, and the personal email of eastern Ukrainian rebel commander Igor Strelkov. None of the group’s leaks have been proven false.

In email correspondence with BuzzFeed, a representative of the group claimed they were “not hackers in the classical sense.”

“We are trying to change reality. Reality has indeed begun to change as a result of the appearance of our information in public,” wrote the representative, whose email account is named Shaltai Boltai, which is the Russian for tragic nursery rhyme hero Humpty Dumpty.

The leak from the Internet Research Agency is the first time specific comments under news articles can be directly traced to a Russian campaign.

Katarina Aistova, a 21-year-old former hotel receptionist, posted these comments on aWorldNetDaily article.

Kremlin supporters’ increased activity online over the Ukraine crisis suggests Russia wants to encourage dissent in America at the same time as stifling it at home. The online offensive comes on the heels of a series of official laws and signals clearly suggesting Russia wants to tighten the screws on its vibrant independent web. In the last 30 days alone, Putin claimed the internet was and always had been a “CIA project” and then signed a law that imposes such cumbersome restrictions on blogs and social media as to make free speech impossible.

“There’s no paradox here. It’s two sides of the same coin,” Igor Ashmanov, a Russian internet entrepreneur known for his pro-government views, told BuzzFeed. “The Kremlin is weeding out the informational field and sowing it with cultured plants. You can see what will happen if they don’t clear it out from the gruesome example of Ukraine.”

Gatov, who is the former head of Russia’s state newswire’s media analytics laboratory, told BuzzFeed the documents were part of long-term Kremlin plans to swamp the internet with comments. “Armies of bots were ready to participate in media wars, and the question was only how to think their work through,” he said. “Someone sold the thought that Western media, which specifically have to align their interests with their audience, won’t be able to ignore saturated pro-Russian campaigns and will have to change the tone of their Russia coverage to placate their angry readers.”

Pro-Russian accounts have been increasingly visible on social networks since Ukraine’s political crisis hit fever pitch in late February. One campaign, “Polite People,” promoted the invasion of Crimea with pictures of Russian troops posing alongside girls, the elderly, and cats. Russia’s famously internet-shy Foreign Ministry began to viciously mock the State Department’s digital diplomacy efforts. “Joking’s over,” its Facebook page read on April 1.

Other accounts make clear attempts to influence Russian-speaking Ukrainians in the country’s restive southeast. Western officials believe many of the Twitter accounts are operated by Russian secret services. One was removed after calling for and celebrating violent attacks on a bank owned by a virulently anti-Putin Ukrainian oligarch.

“This is similar to media dynamics we observed in the Syrian civil war,” said Matt Kodama, an analyst at the web intelligence firm Recorded Future. “Russian news channels broke stories that seemed tailored-made to reinforce pro-Assad narratives, and then Syrian social media authors pushed them.”

Other documents discuss the issues the Russian commenters run into when arguing with the regular audience on the American news sites, particularly the conservative ones. “Upon examining the tone of the comments on major articles on The Blaze that directly or indirectly cover Russia, we can take note of its negative direction,” the author wrote. “It is notable that the audience of the Blaze responds to the article ‘Hear Alan Grayson Actually Defend Russia’s Invasion of Crimea as a Good Thing,’ which generally gives a positive assessment of Russian actions in Ukraine, extremely negatively.”

But praise can be as problematic as scorn. “While studying America’s main media, comments that were pro-Russian in content were noticed,” the author wrote. “After detailed study of the discussions they contained, it becomes obvious: the audience interprets those comments extremely negatively. Moreover, users of internet resources assume that the comments in questions were either written for ideological reasons, or paid for.”

The documents align with the Kremlin’s new attention to the internet. Putin, who swiftly monopolized control over television after coming to power in 1999 and marginalized dissent to a few low-circulation newspapers, largely left the “Runet” alone during his first two terms in power, allowing it to flourish as a parallel world free of censorship and skewed toward the educated urban middle class. Dmitry Medvedev, Putin’s protégé who was president from 2008–12, made a show of embracing social media, but it never sat well with officials and Putin supporters. The gulf between Medvedev’s transparency drive and Russia’s Byzantine bureaucracy’s reluctance to change only highlighted his impotence, earning him the nickname “Microblogger” for his small stature.

“In the best case they looked funny, in the worst, their actions exposed their real motives,” said Katya Romanovskaya, co-author of KermlinRussia, a popular parody account mocking Medvedev’s clumsy efforts. “Twitter is an environment where you can instantly connect with your audience, answer direct questions, and give explanations — which Russian officials are completely incapable of. It goes against their bureaucratic and corrupt nature.”

The current internet crackdown comes after protests by middle-class Muscovites against Putin’s return to the presidency in early 2012, which were largely organized on Facebook and Twitter. All but a few officials have since abandoned the medium and many did so en masse last fall, raising suspicions they did so on Kremlin orders.

“Putin was never very fond of the internet even in the early 2000s,” said Andrei Soldatov, a Russian investigative journalist who specializes in security services and cyber issues. “When he was forced to think about the internet during the protests, he became very suspicious, especially about social networks. He thinks there’s a plot, a Western conspiracy against him. He believes there is a very dangerous thing for him and he needs to put this thing under control.”

Last month, the deputy head of the Kremlin’s telecommunications watchdog said Twitter was a U.S. government tool and threatened to block it “in a few minutes” if the service did not block sites on Moscow’s request. Though the official received a reprimand (as well as a tongue-lashing on Facebook from Medvedev), the statement was widely seen as a trial balloon for expanding censorship. Twitter complied with a Russian request for the first time the following Monday and took down a Ukrainian nationalist account.

A new law that comes into effect in August also forces bloggers with more than 3,000 followers to register with the government. The move entails significant and cumbersome restrictions for bloggers, who previously wrote free of Russia’s complicated media law bureaucracy, while denying them anonymity and opening them up to political pressure.

“The internet has become the main threat — a sphere that isn’t controlled by the Kremlin,” said Pavel Chikov, a member of Russia’s presidential human rights council. “That’s why they’re going after it. Its very existence as we know it is being undermined by these measures.”

Russian multiculturalism policy cannot be considered better than Western cultural Marxism.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Russian multiculturalism policy cannot be considered better than Western cultural Marxism.


The Russians in fact are now suffering from the same misfortune as the nations of the European Union do. Neostalinizm regime headed by Putin is now implementing a policy of multiculturalism which leads to complete dissolution of Russians in a sea of non-white people.

If we take a 2015 study by the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA), a state university. The report points to some marked improvements in Russia's recent demographic fortunes, with fertility rates, for example, rising from 1.3 children per woman in 2006 to 1.7 children per woman in 2012. But it maintains that Russia's demographic prospects are profoundly negative in the longer term. "Despite . . . recent positive dynamics," the report notes, "the potential for a demographic crisis is not over."

Indeed, Russia's window for further population growth is rapidly closing. Within a decade, according to RANEPA's estimates, the population of Russian women aged 20 to 29 will shrink by nearly 50 percent. The corresponding decrease in birth rates, particularly when combined with the country's mortality rates—the 22nd highest in the world, according to the study—makes it clear that Russia is still in for long-term decline.

Zionist jews are behind Gun Control in America.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Zionist jews are behind Gun Control in America.


Most U.S. Federal gun control legislation has been written, introduced, and sponsored by Jewish Congressmen and Jewish Senators.

Here are the Jews who want to seize the guns of American citizens:

U.S. Federal Gun Control Legislation, 1968 – 2005
1968: The Gun Control Act of 1968 comes from Congressman Emanuel Celler’s House bill H.R.17735. It expands legislation already attempted by the non-Jewish Senator Thomas Dodd. America’s biggest and most far-reaching gun law came from a Jew.
1988: Senator Howard Metzenbaum sponsors Senate bill S.1523. It proposes legislation turning every violation of the Gun Control Act of 1968 into a RICO predicate offense, allowing a gun owner to be charged with federal racketeering offenses.
1988: Senator Howard Metzenbaum co-sponsors a bill – S.2180 – to ban, or limit/restrict, so-called “plastic guns.”
1990: Senator Herbert Kohl introduces bill S.2070, the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990, which bans gun possession in a school zone. The law will later be struck down in court as unconstitutional.
1993: Senator Howard Metzenbaum sponsors Senate bill S.653. It bans specific semiautomatic rifles, but also gives the Secretary of the Treasury the power to add any semiautomatic firearm to the list at a later date.
February, 1994: The Brady Law, which requires waiting periods to buy handguns, becomes effective. Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote the Brady Bill. Senator Metzenbaum sponsored the bill in the Senate. The sponsor of the bill in the House was Congressman Charles Schumer.
1994: Senator Howard Metzenbaum introduces S.1878, the Gun Violence Prevention Act of 1994, aka “Brady II.”Congressman Charles Schumer sponsored “Brady II” sister legislation [H.R. 1321] in the U.S. House of Representatives.
September, 1994: The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 goes into effect, including a provision that bans the manufacture and possession of semiautomatic rifles described as “assault weapons.” [Note: true assault weapons are fully automatic, not semiautomatic]. That gun-ban provision was authored in the Senate bySenator Dianne Feinstein and authored in the House by Congressman Charles Schumer.
1995: Senators Kohl, Specter, Feinstein, Lautenberg and others introduce the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1995, an amended version of the 1990 school-zone law which was struck down in court as being unconstitutional.
September, 1996: The Lautenberg Domestic Confiscation provision becomes law. It is part of a larger omnibus appropriations bill. It was sponsored by Senator Frank Lautenberg. It bans people convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence from ever owning a gun.
1997: Senate bill S.54, the Federal Gang Violence Act of 1997, proposes much harsher sentences for people violating minor gun laws, including mandatory prison sentences and forfeiture of property. It was introduced by Senator Dianne Feinstein and Senator Hatch, among others. It returns the idea of turning every violation of the Gun Control Act of 1968 into a RICO predicate offense.
January, 1999: Senator Barbara Boxer introduces bill S.193, the American Handgun Standards Act of 1999.
January, 1999: Senator Herbert Kohl introduces bill S.149, the Child Safety Lock Act of 1999. It would require a child safety lock in connection with transfer of a handgun.
February,1999: Senator Frank Lautenberg introduces bill S.407, the Stop Gun Trafficking Act of 1999.
February, 1999: Senator Frank Lautenberg introduces S.443, the Gun Show Accountability Act of 1999.
March, 1999: Senator Frank Lautenberg introduces bill S.560, the Gun Industry Accountability Act of 1999.
March, 1999: Senator Dianne Feinstein introduces bill S.594, the Large Capacity Ammunition Magazine Import Ban Act of 1999.
May, 2000: Senators Feinstein, Boxer, Lautenberg, and Schumer sponsor Senate bill S.2515, the Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2000. It is a plan for a national firearms licensing system.
January, 2001: Senators Feinstein, Schumer, and Boxer sponsor Senate bill S.25, the Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2001. It is a nation-wide gun registration plan [apparently there were two versions of that Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act bill].
May, 2003: Senators Feinstein, Schumer, Boxer, and others introduce legislation that would reauthorize the 1994 federal assault weapons ban, and, close a loophole in the law that allows large-capacity ammunition magazines to be imported into the U.S. The ban expired in September, 2004.
October, 2003: Senators Feinstein, Lautenberg, Levin, and Schumer co-sponsor bill S.1774, designed to stop the sunset [ending] of the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988.
March, 2005: Senator Frank Lautenberg introduces bill S.645, “to reinstate the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act,” in other words, to reinstate the 1994 assault-rifle ban [also known as the “Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994”] which expired in late 2004.
March, 2005: Senator Dianne Feinstein introduces bill S.620, “to reinstate the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act,” in other words, to reinstate the 1994 assault-rifle ban [also known as the “Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994”] which expired in late 2004.
July, 2005: Senator Dianne Feinstein introduces bill S.A.1621 – Fifty-Caliber Sniper Weapons. This amendment would convert all .50 BMG firearms to NFA weapons.
July, 2005: Senator Dianne Feinstein introduces bill S.A.1622 – Fifty-Caliber Exclusion to S.397. This amendment would modify S.397 to allow suits when the firearm involved was a .50 caliber weapon.
July, 2005: Senator Barbara Boxer introduces bill S.A.1633 – BATFE Safety Standards. This amendment allows law suits to continue/be brought if the product did not meet the safety standards as defined by the BATFE.
July, 2005: Senator Barbara Boxer introduces bill S.A.1634 – ‘Sporting Use’ on Domestic Handguns. Applying ’sporting use’ clause requirements to domestic handguns could, almost completely, dry up the handgun availability in the United States.

Diane Feinstein
1993: The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 comes from San Francisco Jewish Congresswoman Diane Feinstein. The Bill bans the possession of semiautomatic rifles described as “assault weapons.” [Note: true assault weapons are fully automatic, not semiautomatic]. This law is very interesting because in Israel every citizen have legal right to own such weapons. That is not double standard, that is direct sign of fear that jewish reign in US will come to an end.
Alan Dershowitz
2001: In a speech to a Jewish audience at the Jewish Community Center of Creve Coeur, Harvard Jew Alan Dershowitz said:
— “I support abolishing self-defense. No one has the right to take responsibility for their own defense. That’s what the police are for. Everyone who is arming themselves for self-defense are wrong.
“I’m in favor of broad controls on guns. If I oppose individuals defending themselves, I have to support police defending them. I have to support a police state.”.

The America Jewish committee is one of the most powerful Lobby Groups in America. US Senators and Congressmen are beholden to the power of the AJC which “buys” Bills that support its Jewish agenda. The American Jewish Committee brags about the number of Gun Control Laws they have helped to ram through, or rather, “buy.” According to their own Website: “The AJC has a long history of supporting Gun Control Laws, including the Federal Gun Control Act of 1968, the Federal Assault Weapon Control Act of 1989, and the Brady Handgun Prevention Act of 1993.”

Belying jewish end goal to disarm white Americans, President Barack Obama recently called for America to emulate the strict gun control laws passed in Australia nearly 20 years ago. But that Negro has forgotten that by calling for America to follow Australia’s lead regarding gun control, Obama has called for America to follow the lead of the colonists in 1776, who were finally pushed into sparking a revolution because of gun control and confiscation of firearms by the British Crown. What happened next to British crown on American continent we know well and that will happen to Obama and his black and jewish supporters if they continue with their outrageous plans.

The Second Amendment is to allow American citizens to resist government oppression and tyranny will not use the Second Amendment to resist what they see as government oppression and tyranny. Jews who has taken total control over US government and federal reserve system with trillions of dollars under their control, live in fear that some day US citizens wake up and their rule will come to an end. Because of this one of their central political goals is to facilitate legislation, which would allow the arrest and imprisonment of individuals opposed to the Zionist entity, but such legislation will never work if US nation will remain armed. 

After that Zionist Elite have a plan to Watch us closely:
1) Implantable Microchips: In 2002 Applied Digital Solutions worked to get its “VeriChip”- a biochip the size of a grain of rice containing personal data - classified as a non-regulated device. The company’s wish was granted by the FDA. Paroled prisoners, Alzheimer’s sufferers, and convicted shoplifters have all demo-ed the “VeriChip” so that authorities could keep tabs on their whereabouts.

2) Global Positioning Satellite Systems: Under current proposals US Homeland Securitywill be able to track cars by satellite & disable them by remote control.

3) PC Police: A computer device designed to spy on citizens using personal computers. Digital Future Co advertises its PC Police device as a “stealth monitoring application” that will record all keystrokes on a computer.

Obama and illegal immigration in US.

Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Obama and illegal immigration in US.


Obama’s excuse for his illegal amnesty will be that the immigration system is “broken” forcing him to act. But when Obama says that the system is broken, he means that some parts of it still work and so he intends to break immigration all the way through to benefit his own corrupt political allies.

That will hurt his own voters the most, but the Democratic Party has a notoriously masochistic relationship with its voting base. It beats them up and then it gaslights them by hugging them and telling them that it was really the mean Republicans who punched them in the face.

When African-American unemployment rates rise, the workers who can’t find jobs because of all the brand new DREAMERs won’t blame the White House, they’ll blame the evil Republicans for income inequality, assuming Sharpton manages to read the term correctly from his MSNBC teleprompter.

According to Obama our immigration system is broken because it doesn’t allow illegal aliens who illegally crossed the border to take American jobs. That’s not a broken system, that’s what the system is supposed to do.

When illegal aliens aren’t allowed to legally take American jobs, that’s how you know the immigration system is working.

In the language of progressivism, helping means ruining and fixing means breaking. A system that fulfills any useful purpose must be reformed out of all usefulness. If the tattered shreds of the immigration system still keep a single Democratic voter from legally cashing a welfare check and casting a vote, then immigration must be reformed and helped and fixed until it is completely destroyed.

The immigration system is broken because it was reformed so many times that it makes as much sense as an outhouse on a space shuttle. Its main function now is to bring millions of people without jobs to a country where millions are out of work. Obama wants to fix that by adding millions more people.

Our system of immigration is a perfectly good system for importing lots of low wage workers. The only problem is they’re being imported into a country where there are a lot more low wage workers than there are jobs. The cost of providing food stamps and social services for the immigrants and the Americans they put out of work is passed on to the shrinking middle class which kills more jobs.

Some Republicans would like to modify it to help Mark Zuckerberg bring cheaper third world programmers and engineers to replace the Americans over at Facebook. Why settle for just wiping out the working class, when you can also take out chunks of the middle class?

Our immigration system made perfect sense back when we were opening factories everywhere. It made sense when new ranches needed hands and land needed working. It makes a lot less sense when the government is fighting a war on carbon, when ranches have to get out of the way of the spotted red toad and farms are starved of water in the name of the environment.

The million immigrants a year are not entering booming industries, but serving as cheap labor in declining ones. And they’re doing it in a country where declining industries and poor workers are already being subsidized by taxpayers in a dozen different ways. Why then should taxpayers also be subsidizing the replacement of American workers with Somali and Honduran workers?

Who benefits from that except the Democratic Party which not only killed the industries, but is now managing to kill the American workforce? The glorious future of the new economy is a government subsidized Chinese factory using foreign workers to make subsidized solar panels in Oklahoma while taxpayers remain on the hook for the subsidies which used bonds sold to Chinese investors.

Declining industries tighten their belts by cutting costs. They find the cheapest employees they can. Those cheapest employees become a constituency for the nanny state. The nanny state makes it even more expensive to operate. The cycle spins on until the only industries left are state subsidized and everyone directly or indirectly works for the state. And the only items of collateral with which to borrow more money to subsidize them with are the land and the people. That’s not America. That’s Africa.

The Obama economy has created mostly low wage jobs. Those jobs continue to be filled by immigrants. There still aren’t enough jobs so Obama is proposing to create even less jobs by adding more immigrants by legalizing more illegal aliens.

There is something broken here, but it’s not so much immigration as Obama and his party.

Last week I spoke to a British immigration lawyer who described how difficult it was for seniors in the United Kingdom to retire in the United States. While most countries welcome wealthy retirees, our system makes it difficult for them to move and bring their money over here.

Meanwhile in his 2013 State of the Union address, Obama had praised Desiline Victor, a 102-year-old Haitian woman who had moved to the United States at around 80 and never learned to speak English, but did spend hours waiting in line in Florida to vote for Obama. There are plenty of senior immigrants coming through family reunification for a big bite of a social welfare system they never paid into.

But the Democratic Party would rather have a voter than a worker. And so what we have is not an immigration system, but a migration system.

That’s why Obama and his people fought so hard against an Ebola travel ban. It’s why the New York Times editorialized against allowing Cuban doctors to defect because of the “brain drain” but instead urged that “American immigration policy should give priority to the world’s neediest refugees.”

America certainly takes in plenty of needy people, but what the New York Times is emphasizing is that we should be taking in people with nothing to contribute and keeping out those who do. Its ideal immigrant will at best be a low wage worker and at worst a permanent welfare case. We don’t want Cuban doctors. We want Somali muggers and Liberian Ebola cases and Pakistani terrorists.

Immigration is not meant to serve American interests. America is meant to serve immigration.

The end result of this immigration policy will be a stratified society with a permanent lower class and a thin upper class whose leftists can always start a riot by shouting about income equality without ever being able to offer it. Without social mobility what we will have left is social instability. There will be lots of young men with time on their hands to build bombs or throw stones.

If the left doesn’t win through the system, they’ll have their revolutionary constituency standing by.

The only way we can afford the immigration policy that we have now is with a lot more industry and a lot less welfare. Instead our immigration rates were widened and rerouted to the Third World even as our actual industries declined. We kept on taking workers we didn’t have jobs for. We built ghettoes and rust belts and our politicians kept on reciting robotic speeches about being a nation of immigrants.

Immigration requires opportunity. We still have it, but less of it than we used to. Our immigration system is not based on opportunity. It’s based on a migratory flow of Democratic Party voters.

What broke the system was making it as open as possible to those who had the least to offer while closing it tightly to those who had the most to offer. Now Obama wants to import illegal aliens while deporting American jobs. He wants to trade American jobs to illegal aliens for Democratic votes.

If the immigration system is to work again, it should work for America… not for Obama.

Slave of Zion. Donald Trump Aipac Full Speech.



Originally posted by lorddreadnought at Slave of Zion. Donald Trump Aipac Full Speech.

In a highly awaited speech at the AIPAC Policy Conference on Monday evening, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump reiterated his support for Israel while promising to continue to do so if elected President. Trump noted that he is a lifelong supporter of the State of Israel and noted that, despite being a newcomer to politics, "I'm not new to supporting the Jewish state." He touted his pro-Israel credentials and noted how he led the Salute Israel parade in 2014. “It was a dangerous time for Israel and frankly for many supporting Israel...

I took the risk and I'm glad I did,” said Trump. “But I didn't come to you to pander about Israel - that's what a politician does: all talk and no action. "I came to tell you where I stand on the future of America's relationship with our strategic ally and cultural brother, the state of Israel.” Trump declared that his number one number priority is to dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran. “This deal is catastrophic, for America, for Israel and for the whole Middle East.” Good evening. I speak to you today as a lifelong supporter and true friend of Israel. I am a newcomer to politics but not to backing the Jewish state.

In late 2001, weeks after the attacks on New York City and Washington – attacks perpetrated by Islamic fundamentalists, Mayor Giuliani visited Israel to show solidarity with terror victims. I sent him in my plane because I backed the mission 100%. In Spring 2004, at the height of violence in the Gaza Strip, I was the Grand Marshal of the 40th Salute to Israel Parade, the largest single gathering in support of the Jewish state. It was a very dangerous time for Israel and frankly for anyone supporting Israel – many people turned down this honor –I did not, I took the risk. I didn’t come here tonight to pander to you about Israel.

That’s what politicians do: all talk, no action. I came here to speak to you about where I stand on the future of American relations with our strategic ally, our unbreakable friendship, and our cultural brother, the only democracy in the Middle East, the State of Israel

My number one priority is to dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran. I have been in business a long time. I know deal-making and let me tell you, this deal is catastrophic – for America, for Israel, and for the whole Middle East. The problem here is fundamental. We have rewarded the world’s leading state sponsor of terror with $150 billion and we received absolutely nothing in return. I’ve studied this issue in greater detail than almost anybody. The biggest concern with the deal is not necessarily that Iran is going to violate it, although it already has, the bigger problem is that they can keep the terms and still get to the bomb by simply running out the clock, and, of course, they keep the billions. The deal doesn’t even require Iran to dismantle its military nuclear capability!

Yes, it places limits on its military nuclear program for only a certain number of years. But when those restrictions expire, Iran will have an industrial-size military nuclear capability ready to go, and with zero provision for delay no matter how bad Iran’s behavior is. When I am president, I will adopt a strategy that focuses on three things when it comes to Iran. First, we will stand up to Iran’s aggressive push to destabilize and dominate the region.

Iran is a very big problem and will continue to be, but if I’m elected President, I know how to deal with trouble. Iran is a problem in Iraq, a problem in Syria, a problem in Lebanon, a problem in Yemen, and will be a very major problem for Saudi Arabia. Literally every day, Iran provides more and better weapons to their puppet states. Hezbollah in Lebanon has received sophisticated anti-ship weapons, anti-aircraft weapons, and GPS systems on rockets. Now they’re in Syria trying to establish another front against Israel from the Syrian side of the Golan Heights. In Gaza, Iran is supporting Hamas and Islamic Jihad – and in the West Bank they are openly offering Palestinians $7,000 per terror attack and $30,000 for every Palestinian terrorist’s home that’s been destroyed.

Iran is financing military forces throughout the Middle East and it is absolutely indefensible that we handed them over $150 billion to facilitate even more acts of terror.

Zionist billionaire Sheldon Adelson: I endorse Donald Trump for president.

Zionist  Sheldon Adelson: I endorse Donald Trump for president

Like the Derby, the race for the Republican nomination started from a wide gate — some entries with better post positions, others with more backing. We had candidates with such perceived advantages as wide name identification, large campaign war chests, supposed geographic benefits and other assets they hoped would tip the race in their direction.

Ultimately, each candidate had to convince the party’s primary voters across the country that he or she deserved to be the nominee.

One candidate has won that race, and now Republicans must join together to make sure he wins the next one.

While the primary cycle still has some important elections ahead, it is clear that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for president.
I am endorsing Trump’s bid for president and strongly encourage my fellow Republicans — especially our Republican elected officials, party loyalists and operatives, and those who provide important financial backing — to do the same.

The alternative to Trump being sworn in as the nation’s 45th president is frightening.

For nearly eight years, Republicans have fought tooth and nail against President Obama and his policies. We waged battles over debt, government spending, Obamacare and the Iran nuclear deal — an issue of paramount importance to me personally and to many others around the world.

We gained some victories, but on too many issues Obama achieved his goals, if not necessarily America’s goals. As Republicans, we know that getting a person in the White House with an “R” behind his name is the only way things will get better.

That opportunity still exists. We must not cut off our noses to spite our faces.

If Republicans do not come together in support of Trump, Obama will essentially be granted something the Constitution does not allow — a third term in the name of Hillary Clinton.
I’ve spent time talking to Donald Trump. Do I agree with him on every issue? No. But it’s unlikely that any American agrees with his or her preferred candidate on every issue.

After the 2012 election cycle, I was asked frequently what I would look for in a future presidential contender. While I had some personal preferences because of friendships with some of the 2016 candidates, I kept coming back to the issue of executive experience.

In my view, a governor of a state is ideally qualified to be president. A governor is a state’s final decision maker — its chief executive and steward of the public’s money. I felt strongly that someone with that level of CEO experience would be well-trained for the job of president.

It turns out that is exactly what we are getting in Trump. He is a candidate with actual CEO experience, shaped and molded by the commitment and risk of his own money rather than the public’s. He is a CEO success story that exemplifies the American spirit of determination, commitment to cause and business stewardship.
