"I understand that the Israelis, the Jews, the Zionists, and the bankers are separate entities. You have made a very clear distinction between secular and religious Jews. Are any of these groups preparing to decamp from the West?"
These were some of the words that a friend sent me on the eve of Christmas 2013. The answer became an article. Jewry 2014, Quo Vadis? Where are you going?
Jewry 2014 Quo Vadis?
It is easier to find where they are going if one knows what place are their leaving. In 2013, the main news in this front is the rift between Israel and its closest ally, the USA.
On sleigh to New York?
Much was written on the issue, the latest development in Israeli public opinion was in Peace Index: 50% Reject USA as Israel Ally. After that, Israel declared war on an American academic institution,+ signaling that the changes are here to stay.
The USA-Israel love affair is cooling down. In November, a leading politician close to Netanyahu said "Kerry Crossed a Red Line", this was strengthened by an important lawyer who said "US Secretary of State is the enemy of the Jews".
On November 20, Lieberman dropped a political bomb while French President Hollande was finishing a strategic visit to Israel, which was full of nuclear innuendos (French-Israeli Attack on Iran?). He said "In times when the relations with the USA are diminishing, Israel needs to search for new allies with common interests."
Israeli-American relations got cold enough to allow the Jewish-sleigh to depart elsewhere, quickly advancing on thick, supportive ice.
Berlin and Paris?
Communist Israel Flag
From Aleph, the beginning, the State of Israel is closely related to Communism
The Zionist movement started in Europe, roughly at the same time of another popular New Age ideology developed by Jewish scholars, Communism.* In its first years, Israel flirted intensively with the Soviet Bloc. Many years afterwards, Zionist-Communist settlements still abounded.
The always developing commercial relations between the European Union and Zion are often in the news, most recently in Israel Gets Pink, after an Ultra-Orthodox Jew purchased the world's most expensive diamond. Could the EU replace the US as Israel's main ally?
In November, the conflict between Tel Aviv and the EU over West Bank policies ended with a Zionist victory.$
Europe is unlikely to ally itself closely with Israel, which looks at it in a derogative manner. Europe is to be used, not to be a friend.
"Wait, your analysis is wrong, Israel is not one!" Yes, my readers are almost always right. Israel is not one.
Who is going?
The graph next to this paragraph is amazing. It was published by IDI on January 29, 2012. In the last days of 2013, it was published by Haaretz, the Voice of the Shin Beth secret police. If unaware of Israeli inner reality, it looks kosher. Otherwise, it stinks like a terrified pig on the way to the slaughterhouse.
The delay in the publication is a telltale sign of the problem. It was delayed until the USA-Israel relations deteriorated publicly. Another telltale sign is the illustration. It shows a handwoven skullcap ("kippah sruga"). These are used by Religious Zionists, the putative++ denomination created when a loose pact between Zionists and Ultra-Orthodox Jews was achieved and enabled the creation of the State of Israel. Most people using handwoven skullcaps are settlers in the West Bank.
This is the spot where the screaming pig hides. Most Israelis would be utterly surprised by the graph. They would see for the first time a claim that Reform and Conservative Jews are a significant percentage of the population. These two streams are not recognized in Israel and are not significant in any place except the USA. The Conservative denomination is slowly disintegrating, its members choosing either to return to Ultra-Orthodoxy or move outwards to heretical Reform congregations.
Many settlers are American Jews. Once in Israel, they adopt handwoven skullcaps and go to the West Bank. This is mainly because they are culturally incompatible with Israelis and prefer to create American ghettos in Palestinian areas.
Let me anticipate the protests against the former paragraph. Near the northern edge of Tel Aviv there is a problematic Zionist institution known as the Land of Israel Museum. Somehow, there is nothing belonging to the Palestinian culture and nation on display there. The institution conducts the prestigious HaKatedra Strategic Friday lecture series, which has already provided sizzling content to this website (see Astonishing Israeli Attack on Iran). Make no mistake; anybody invited to speak there is Zionist and Israeli aristocracy, or closely related to them.
On March 18, 2012, the museum hosted Hebrew writer A.B. Yehoshua. He likes to be described as left-wing, but he said in Italian La Stampa that even before the 2008-2009 Cast Lead Operation—which awarded the title “terror inflicting” to Israel by the UN—he had published an appeal to Gaza residents urging them to end the violence, and "the Israeli operation was necessary." That fully justifies the "B" in his name; it stands for his nickname, "Bully" (this is not a joke, there is no better choice for the archetypal Zionist).
In his talk, he said "I have never heard the Jews analyze the Holocaust as a Jewish failure, which was not anticipated, where ... for 2,000 years, in spite of the many red lights which lit up throughout history ... we must say, first and foremost, we failed. For five years, a third of the nation was destroyed and it was not because of ideology or religion, or economics or territory." After laying down the basics, he hit "American Jews are only partial Jews while Israeli Jews are total Jews, in no way are we the same thing - we are total and they are partial; we are Israeli and also Jewish. In recent years, my friends and I have needed to defend … as if it is merely an issue of citizenship, while Israel is the authentic, deep concept of the Jewish people ... in no siddur [prayer book, literally "arrangement"] is there a mention of the word 'Jew' but only 'Israeli.' The name of our country and the territory is Land of Israel - and it is about this deep matter that we must defend against a Jewish offensive.
"If Judaism is important to you, then come here, receive it in full and be part of it. But it is important that you understand: 'they' and 'us' are not the same thing. Do not make do with texts. At least learn Hebrew, learn about us through the intimacy of Hebrew. They should come here more often. All the love they have for Israel, yet they were here for barely a five-day visit; barely 20 percent of them [American Jews] were ever in Israel," he added. In other words, Yehoshua is preaching for war and the gathering of Jewry in Israel; to add irony to his words, his name is Hebrew for "Joshua," one of the most bloodthirsty leaders in the Bible; the one who conquered the Land of Israel.
Another misleading point in the graph is the "Do not identify with any denomination" category. This is an Israeli code for secular-Zionists. They do identify, because all of them follow Ultra-Orthodox traditions regarding birth, marriage and death.
The publication of the controversial graph was done by Haaretz, the Voice of the Shin Beth secret police, as part of a series of articles promoting the Reform Movement. Why are they doing that?
If Israel and the USA rift continues to grow, and American-Jews keep assimilating into the local culture, then at a certain moment a mass emigration of the remnant will begin, like the one from Russia in the 1990s. The secret police wants to change the perception of Reform Jews in the eyes of Israelis, who now consider them little more than English-speaking foreigners who support Israel.
Zionist-Secular Jews have become an "erev rav," a "great mix" that doesn't know where it came from or where it goes. They are so scared of the Shin Beth secret police that they are afraid of asking questions. A secretive state, with secret laws and an evil administration rules their lives with fear and violence. Compared with them, East-German Stasi was benevolent. Out of fear, they will obey blindly and attack whatever they are told to attack. That is their danger.
Finally, some bankers are close to Israel but it is far from the impression one may get on the web. Following the 1980s confiscation of the French Rothschild's fortune by the socialist government, they (wisely) won't trust Western, Westphalian, Walsinghamian-styled countries. This questionable club includes Israel, especially since the latter gave its largest bank as a gift to a Mossad agent.$$
Beijing and Moskva?
Putin and Netanyahu June 2012
"Give me one or two years, I must get rid of that unreliable ally"
Israeli relations with China are constantly developing. A senior semi-official delegation visited Beijing in November (See After Betraying USA and Pollard, is China Israel's Next Victim?).
China does business without attaching conditions related to human rights, thing that is especially attractive to Israel. "All of a sudden we have this fly in the ointment," Mr. Gold, head of the Israeli delegation said. "So now we hear people in Israel saying, 'The hell with Europe. Let's go to China and India,'" say Gold forgetting to mention the recent problems that Israeli military industries faced in India (see
India Strikes Israel Military Industries).
China won't forget Israel's help. At a certain point, Israel became China's second-largest foreign supplier of arms after Russia. However, the flourishing trade was restricted by the USA after Israel tried to sell IAI Phalcon airborne early warning aircraft which contained American AWACS technology as well as parts of the Lavi aircraft (it never entered IAF service) which were used in the design of the J-10 fourth-generation fighter and contained American technology. Yet, technologies were leaked.
"Just as the Jewish state lays claim to modern territory based on ancient dominion, China cites history to assert sovereignty over Taiwan, Tibet, Xinjiang and much of the South China Sea," Gold said to the generals. Will Hollywood produce a movie stressing the point?
The same is true with Russia. Israel's Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman was born in Moldova and has direct links with Putin and Minister of Foreign Affairs Lavrov. Mother Russia is always happy to meet Russia-speaking former-Communists.
Step by step, this new loose alliance is solidifying. China and Russia will never completely replace the existing closeness between the Israeli and American administration, but it can work. Israel is too small to function independently.
It works even to become as close as neighbors. On February 2012, Valery Kogan, a Russian billionaire who owns Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, bought a $100 million residence on Caesarea's Hadar Street, just down the street from Netanyahu's Palace
Will Israel decamp the West and look eastwards? After all, Hebrew speakers consider the east as the main direction; one of the words for it, "kadima," doubles as "ahead."
It is difficult to predict accurately. Much of the abovementioned topics are the aggregate of many individual sentiments. There is a clear movement eastwards. Small trading centers in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore. In Thailand and Nepal tourism centers have emerged. The weapons industry opens many doors.
Israel is a very loose alliance between groups with different interests. The way it will play out depends on a myriad of variables. They may join forces to conquer the world or bitterly fight among themselves to death. Unjustified violence is the only certainty.

Special Notice - Persecuted by Israel, Maimed by Bolivia
Under the leadership of Mr. Evo Morales, recipient of the 2006 Al-Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights, I have been declared a Political Prisoner of Bolivia. My situation is acute, Western Human Rights organizations care not about those speaking against Israel, they do not care about those suffering under the violent hands of one of the main suppliers of "special sugar" to the West.
I attach here the bulk of a recent letter I sent to my lawyers, Despite their good will and astounding experience they failed to save my life. I am being punished illegitimately by beasts. I will keep publishing for as much as I can, but I am unlikely to survive here. Here is the text:
I apologize for this obviously incomplete email, the reason for my withholding much of what is relevant will become obvious.
I have been violated in several occasions by the Bolivian Government. The technique was constant. I was gassed unconscious in my room (both in the church and the guesthouses) and they entered the room and committed crimes.
It has stopped since I have solved the gassing attempts, and started to secure my room upon entrance. Next time they try it will mean my death. They know that.
One of the violations consisted in the introduction of magnetic-operated electrodes in my mouth. Breaking gums, nerves and filling with my bare fingers I had pulled them out. I can't stand the pain anymore. Visiting dentists here is impossible; in no way can I secure the event.
Other tortures include low-voltage electrocution through my bed and shoes. I have solved this.
I have no access to safe water and food.
These are not Bolivian technologies. The last item invented by the people inhabiting the area was dehydrated potatoes. They never developed writing. They just copy from others.
Other tortures and constant pressure form my days here. Yet, I have published every day, unless facing urging administrative issues with the site, mainly fixing attacks on it.
I can’t withstand it any more. My mouth is an open wound. My throat has not healed from the Bolivian Government attack on 2009. My nose and hears are being torn apart. I can't be more detailed over the web.
A few months from now, my American ATM card will expire. Afterwards, I will be on the streets and probably dead within a few hours.

* Communism has deep Jewish roots, as kindly reminded by a Jewish senior journalist in 2006, following is his article.
Stalin’s Jews published by Sever Plocker in Yedihot Aharonot, the leading Israeli newspaper, on December 21, 2006. And this is just before commenting on Marx et al and the kibbutzim concentration camps.
We mustn't forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish
Here's a particularly forlorn historical date: Almost 90 years ago, between the 19th and 20th of December 1917, in the midst of the Bolshevik revolution and civil war, Lenin signed a decree calling for the establishment of The All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage, also known as Cheka.
Within a short period of time, Cheka became the largest and cruelest state security organization. Its organizational structure was changed every few years, as were its names: From Cheka to GPU, later to NKVD, and later to KGB.
We cannot know with certainty the number of deaths Cheka was responsible for in its various manifestations, but the number is surely at least 20 million, including victims of the forced collectivization, the hunger, large purges, expulsions, banishments, executions, and mass death at Gulags.
Whole population strata were eliminated: Independent farmers, ethnic minorities, members of the bourgeoisie, senior officers, intellectuals, artists, labor movement activists, "opposition members" who were defined completely randomly, and countless members of the Communist party itself.
In his new, highly praised book "The War of the World, "Historian Niall Ferguson writes that no revolution in the history of mankind devoured its children with the same unrestrained appetite as did the Soviet revolution. In his book on the Stalinist purges, Tel Aviv University's Dr. Igal Halfin writes that Stalinist violence was unique in that it was directed internally.
Lenin, Stalin, and their successors could not have carried out their deeds without wide-scale cooperation of disciplined "terror officials," cruel interrogators, snitches, executioners, guards, judges, perverts, and many bleeding hearts who were members of the progressive Western Left and were deceived by the Soviet regime of horror and even provided it with a kosher certificate.
All these things are well-known to some extent or another, even though the former Soviet Union's archives have not yet been fully opened to the public. But who knows about this? Within Russia itself, very few people have been brought to justice for their crimes in the NKVD's and KGB's service. The Russian public discourse today completely ignores the question of "How could it have happened to us?" As opposed to Eastern European nations, the Russians did not settle the score with their Stalinist past.
And us, the Jews? An Israeli student finishes high school without ever hearing the name "Genrikh Yagoda," the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU's deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD. Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin's collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system. After Stalin no longer viewed him favorably, Yagoda was demoted and executed, and was replaced as chief hangman in 1936 by Yezhov, the "bloodthirsty dwarf."
Yezhov was not Jewish but was blessed with an active Jewish wife. In his Book "Stalin: Court of the Red Star", Jewish historian Sebag Montefiore writes that during the darkest period of terror, when the Communist killing machine worked in full force, Stalin was surrounded by beautiful, young Jewish women.
Stalin's close associates and loyalists included member of the Central Committee and Politburo Lazar Kaganovich. Montefiore characterizes him as the "first Stalinist" and adds that those starving to death in Ukraine, an unparalleled tragedy in the history of human kind aside from the Nazi horrors and Mao's terror in China, did not move Kaganovich.
Many Jews sold their soul to the devil of the Communist revolution and have blood on their hands for eternity. We'll mention just one more: Leonid Reichman, head of the NKVD's special department and the organization's chief interrogator, who was a particularly cruel sadist.
In 1934, according to published statistics, 38.5 percent of those holding the most senior posts in the Soviet security apparatuses were of Jewish origin. They too, of course, were gradually eliminated in the next purges. In a fascinating lecture at a Tel Aviv University convention this week, Dr. Halfin described the waves of soviet terror as a "carnival of mass murder," "fantasy of purges", and "essianism of evil." Turns out that Jews too, when they become captivated by messianic ideology, can become great murderers, among the greatest known by modern history.
The Jews active in official communist terror apparatuses (In the Soviet Union and abroad) and who at times led them, did not do this, obviously, as Jews, but rather, as Stalinists, communists, and "Soviet people." Therefore, we find it easy to ignore their origin and "play dumb": What do we have to do with them? But let's not forget them. My own view is different. I find it unacceptable that a person will be considered a member of the Jewish people when he does great things, but not considered part of our people when he does amazingly despicable things.
Even if we deny it, we cannot escape the Jewishness of "our hangmen," who served the Red Terror with loyalty and dedication from its establishment. After all, others will always remind us of their origin.
$ The 2013 Israel-European Union War
On July 18, 2013, the European Union published guidelines banning EU funding of projects in territories occupied by Israel since the 1967 Middle East war. According to the EU decision, from 2014, all existing agreements between European countries with Israel will exclude East Jerusalem, the West Bank, Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights. Israeli projects applying for EU funding will be required to sign a clause to state that it will not apply to the Occupied Territories.
The EU was attempting to stop the bisection of the West Bank. Israel is trying to create Jewish contiguity between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, where one of Israel's main industrial centers is located. Once this is achieved, the West Bank will be effectively bisected,* splitting the State of Palestine in three non-contiguous zones (Gaza would be the third). If the West Bank is bisected, Palestine would not be viable.
On July 26, Israel's Ministry of Defense declared sanctions on Europe. Its minister ordered to stop the cooperation with people of the European Union in the West Bank and to deny them help in the different projects they are implementing. In Gaza, they were to be denied entry and exit via Israel, forcing them to cross via the Sinai, an area suffering violence. Israel can block projects only in Area C, the parts of the West Bank under complete control of the IDF. Right wing extremists in Israel called to cut diplomatic relations with the EU.
The Sovereign of the West Bank didn't bother to contact the EU. Instead, he delivered orders to the IDF and the Civil Administration and sent a copy to the Hebrew media. The European couldn't answer to the Minister of Defense. "We have got no formal messages on the issue," was their message, including from the spokeswoman of the European Foreign Affairs Council. Moshe Ya'alon, Sovereign of the West Bank, had won the first battle of the Sanctions War.
On August 8, 2013, a strange scheme was disclosed as a result of the ongoing escalation in the conflict. Without paying attention, Israeli ministers of government disclosed how in Europe $600 million are worth $900 million. This happened when the Israeli government met ahead of the negotiations with the EU about Israel's participation in Horizon 2020.
The negotiations were the last step in the joining of Israel to the academic program aimed to assist the European Union in anticipating and meeting challenges in the longer term horizon of 2020 to 2030. In fewer words, this is a program that invests money in universities. Israel is the only non-European country allowed to participate in the project.
The details provided were astonishing. Israel will give $600 million to the European Union in exchange for the privilege to participate in Horizon 2020; the payments would to be done according to the payments plan being negotiated. In return, Israel will get $900 million to be spent in research plans and Hi-Tech companies approved by the European Union.
In November, the escalating conflict was solved after the EU surrendered to an Israeli request to add a section to the agreement. The addendum stresses that Israeli recognition of the EU policy prohibiting the funding of Israeli bodies in the settlements does not affect any future border negotiation with the Palestinians.
The war is over; the EU will soon pay $300 million award to the winner.
Note on West Bank Sovereignty: Israel's law system is incomplete. Where laws do not exist, Israeli courts often refer to British Mandate and Ottoman Empire laws. In the recent Prawer Law Affair, was based on the expropriation (i.e. "robbing by the State") of Bedouin lands. The State requested from the landowners to find their Ottoman Empire "Kushan" ownership papers. Not one Bedouin has such documents. They can't be issued since that empire is kaput. "Great," said the Justice, "Let's expropriate!"
In the West Bank, the situation is even more complex. The area's sovereign is Israel's Minister of Defense, the conquering army commander, until Palestine declares independence. The minister rules the area through the Civil Administration of the IDF. In addition to the laws of previous rulers (Jordan, British Empire, Ottoman Empire), the Civil Administration can issue arbitrary laws of its own. The most infamous in this category are those allowing to jail children.
In this mayhem, an Ottoman law generally recognized is that as long as land is worked by its owner, he keeps his ownership. This is the reason why olive orchards are so popular. These orchards provide essential ingredients in the local diet, and are a comfy proof of ownership because they require no efforts. Olive trees love the West Bank. That is also why the first step in the expropriation of land in the West Bank by Israel is the uprooting of olive trees.

++ Despite the important role of the UN in the incomplete foundation of the State of Israel, the event couldn’t have been possible without a previous affair that shaped the actual political map of Israel. The odd Zionist-Haredi coalitions ruling Israel couldn’t have been possible in any Jewish settlement of the 19th century. Israeli governments are composed of coalitions between Humanist-Zionist groups (led by Labor or Likud—Kadima enters in the same category) and Haredi parties. The latter are bound to the Talmud and are waiting for religious redemption via a Messiah, practicing Pharisaic interpretations of the Bible. This implausible pact is plagued with inner fights
Jewish redemption is far from the Spiritual Redemption professed by Christians. Jews expect a physical redemption based on a Godly Kingdom in the Land of Israel. All Jewish religious interpretations until the 19th Century did not allow a Zionist party to conquer Arab lands; that was the role of a future Messiah to be sent by God. Thus, any cooperation between Zionists and Haredim was impossible. Traditionally, Haredim and other groups of the Jewish Orthodoxy believed the abovementioned redemption would arrive in two stages. The early stage is called “Messiah Son of Joseph,” and includes the physical stages of bringing the Jewish people together; this stage is symbolized by a bull. The second stage is the “Messiah Son of David,” when a spiritual Messiah would restore the Kingdom of God. This stage is symbolized by a donkey; Christian readers would immediately recognize the triumphal entry of Jesus to Jerusalem riding one (John 12:12-16). In the 19th Century, Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook, was one of the Haredi Jews who created the basis of cooperation between Zionists and Pharisees.
>What he did was simple, and is known as “Hamoro shel Mashiah” (“Messiah’s Donkey” in Hebrew). He claimed that the secular Jews—the Zionists—can take the place of “Messiah Son of Joseph” as a collective entity, creating the basis that would allow the Pharisees—Haredim and related groups—to produce the “Messiah Son of David” in the new and secular state. This interpretation resulted in a political alliance that was accepted by most Jews and became the basis for what now is called the State of Israel. Neturei Karta is one of the few Jewish groups that does not accept this unholy contraption. A social result was the creation of the “hand-woven kippas” group, also known in Hebrew as the “nationalistic religious” people, to whom most settlers in the West Bank belong. They could not have existed prior to the alliance. Their views are extreme on both ends, they are extremely nationalistic and extremely Pharisaic.
$$ Israel's largest bank, Bank HaPoalim, was owned by the Histadrut workers union until 1983, when it was nationalized following the Bank Stock Crisis. The bank was held by the Israeli government until 1996 when it was sold to a group of investors led by Ted Arison in a circular deal. He took a loan from Israel second largest bank, Leumi, which at the time was also owned by the State, and with this loan paid for the other bank. With the profits of Bank HaPoalim, he paid the loan. Shari Arison was born in New York to Ted Arison. She inherited from him the shares of Bank Hapoalim, Israel’s largest bank. These were practically given to her father for free by the State of Israel (see The Cross of Bethlehem). This gift wasn't the result of Ted’s pretty smile, but because of a lifetime collaboration with the Mossad.
