I’m so pleased that I read Douglas Reeds book- The Controversy of Zion- otherwise I’d still be half asleep to just how the West operates. and NOT in the Wests Interest whatsoever!
Arab spring Western only in that- it was kicked off in Egypt by American jews….Talmudic Governments Reed wrote would be set up in place across the Middle East- book completed in 1956.
Apparently Poland for many, many decades used to be the home of The Talmudic Government than was shifted…Around
How and why Al-Jazeera became garbage
Thierry Meyssan of VoltaireNet chronicles Al-Jazeera’s slide from an alternative news network to lie factory, and shows that Mahmoud Jibril (the CIA asset and NATO-installed boss of Libya) was personally instrumental in Al-Jazeera’s plunge.
Mr. Meyssan also notes that today’s Western-sponsored “Arab Spring” is a replay of the 1920s “Arab Spring,” when England and France moved to seize the former Ottoman provinces and install puppet “parliamentary democracies” under Western control.
In the 1920s the West allied with secular groups against Islamists. Today the West allies with Islamists against secular governments – the same Islamists that the West claims to be fighting in its “war on terror.”
[Parenthetical SIDE NOTES are mine. ~ Heydrich]
In the space of 15 years, Al-Jazeera established itself in the Arab world as an innovative news outlet, but today has dedicated itself to advancing the cause of bankers, and to overthrowing the governments of Libya and Syria by any means.
To understand how this came about, let’s briefly review Al-Jazeera’s history.
A DESIRE FOR DIALOGUE
Al-Jazeera was conceived by two French-Israeli personalities, the David and Jean Frydman brothers, after Jewish extremists assassinated their friend Yitzhak Rabin, who had tried to make genuine peace with Palestinians.
The Frydmans’ goal was to create a medium where Israelis and Arabs could freely exchange ideas and get to know each other.
In 1995, Orbit (a Saudi company) reached an agreement with the BBC to set up a news broadcast in Arabic, but the arrogant Saudis proved too tyrannical for British journalists, and the agreement was terminated. Most of Arabic BBC journalists lost their jobs, but the Frydman brothers quickly recruited them to launch Al-Jazeera.
The Frydman brothers wanted Al-Jazeera to come across as a purely Arab network outside of Saudi control. Hence in 1995 they approached the new emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, who had just overthrown his father in a palace coup. The new emir had seized the throne by falsely accusing his father of having pro-Iranian sentiments, and his lies were fabricated with the help of London and Washington, who in return were granted the Al Udeid Air Base west of Doha, Qatar.
The new emir had attended the elite Sandhurst Military Academy in England, and he undertook a massive expansion of Qatar’s military forces, which would later participate in the NATO’s genocidal attack on Libya. After taking power, he surrounded himself with Western bankers and weapons makers, and cultivated ties with Israel.
He even asked the Israeli Ministry of Commerce to open an office in Doha, Qatar, and became involved in the endless Israeli stalling tactic known as “peace talks” with the Palestinians. Washington started using Jews (e.g. Chase Untermeyer) as its ambassadors to Qatar.
Seeking to compete with the wealthy Saudi media, the Qatari emir received the Frydman brothers and agreed to let Doha be the headquarters of Al-Jazeera. The initial financing package included a down payment from the Frydman brothers, plus a $137 million loan from the Emir.
The Saudi monarchy retaliated by organizing a boycott of advertisers, in order to deny revenue to the new Al-Jazeera project.
Ultimately the Qatari emir himself became the financial backer of Al-Jazeera.
The new network offered 24-hour alternative (i.e. non-Saudi) news and views that captivated Arab audiences. It presented opposing viewpoints, and let viewers decide the truth. [Faux News later copied this format, and developed its false slogan, “We report; you decide.”]
Al-Jazeera’s flagship program was a talk show titled “The Contrary View” with gadfly host Faisal al-Qassem, who comically exposed prejudices, and often poked fun at everyone except the emir himself.
Each Arab viewer found reason to praise some Al-Jazeera programs and condemn others, but overall the color and effervescence of Al-Jazeera prevailed over its drab, monotoned, Saudi-backed competitors, and changed the Arab audiovisual landscape.
However, after Mossad perpetrated 9-11, the emir of Qatar ran afoul of his Western and Israeli friends when Al-Jazeera reorters gave truthful accounts of the US military invasions. Al-Jazeera became the only channel to cover the NATO invasion of Afghanistan live from its office there.
This made the network even more popular among Arabs, and catapulted it from a controversial channel to a acclaimed media outlet.
In retaliation, George W. Bush bombed Al-Jazeera’s office in Kabul and in Baghdad, assassinating reporter Tareq Ayyoub (1 April 2003). Bush even threatened to bomb the network’s central studios in Doha, Qatar.
Bush also had Al-Jazeera reporter Tayseer Alouni (a Spanish national) arrested for interviewing Osama Bin Laden weeks after the 9-11 false-flag attack. (Alouni was the only foreign journalist to remain in Kabul during the US invasion, and broadcast bloody images to the world.) He was later released from prison, but went to Iraq to cover the US invasion, further infuriating President Bush. After the Israeli Mossad murdered 191 people and wounded 1,800 via the Madrid train bombings of 11 March 2004, Bush ordered the Spanish government to imprison Tayseer Alouni for seven years, beginning on 26 Sep 2005. [However a Spanish judge released him to home detention on 6 October 2006.]
Bush also had Al-Jazeera reporter Sami al-Hajj arrested in Pakistan (15 Dec 2001) and imprisoned without charge at Guantanamo Bay. [Over the next seven years, this latter item became so embarrassing for the USA that on 1 May 2008 Bush released Sami al-Hajj from Guantanamo, and had him flown to his native Sudan.]
THE 2005 REORGANIZATION
However, all good things come to an end. In 2006, after the death of David Frydman, the Qatari Emir decided to completely overhaul Al-Jazeera and create new channels, including Al-Jazeera English, at a time when the global market was changing, and many nations were getting satellite news channels. For the staff of Al-Jazeera English, the network hired journalists from ABC’s Nightline and other top news outfits.
With an audience now reaching 50 million viewers, the moment had come to drop the iconoclastic excitement of Al-Jazeera’s early period, and become like every other drab corporate media outlet, in order to be a player in the globalized banker-controlled world. However, this would not be easy, since Western media outlets resented the new competition, and falsely accused Al-Jazeera English of having “extremist” views.
To overcome this obstacle, Sheikh Hamad bin-Khalifa of Qatar called on JTrack, an international firm that had already provided him with personal training in communication skills.
JTrack is headed by Mahmoud Jibril, the CIA asset who is now the NATO-installed boss of Libya. (The “J” in “JTrack” stands for “Jibril”). JTrack specializes in training Arab and Southeast Asian leaders in the pro-banker language of Davos. Now the Qatari emir wanted Mr. Jibril to teach him how to project that image, so Al-Jazeera would please Western and Israeli bankers and warlords.
Throughout the world from Morocco to Singapore, Mahmoud Jibril’s JTrack has trained most of the political leaders backed by the USA and Israel (often mere hereditary puppets), turning them into “respectable” media personalities that smoothly deliver Western / Israeli propaganda.
However, when the West lifted its sanctions against Libya in 2006, Gaddafi’s new American friends asked him to bring in Mahmoud Jibril to be head of Libya’s National Economic Development Board. Thus, Mr. Jibril withdrew from Al-Jazeera before he had fully transformed the network into a propaganda outlet for those same bankers.
In Libya, Saif el-Islam (Gaddafi’s son) foolishly listened to his Western advisors and made Mahmoud Jibril both Minister of Planning and Director of the Development Authority, such that Jibril became the de facto number two man in the Libyan government, having authority over other ministers.
At breakneck speed, Jibril undertook the deregulation of Libya’s socialist economy, the privatization of Libya’s public enterprises, and the opening of Libyan society to Western bankers and debt-peddlers.
At the time that Mr. Jibril left Al-Jazeera in 2007, he convinced the Qatari emir to make Mr. Wadah Khanfar the network’s general director.
[SIDE NOTE: On 20 Sep 2011, Wadah Khanfar resigned from Al-Jazeera without explanation. It’s possible that he was embarrassed by the Wikileaks Palestinian Papers, which revealed his close relationship with the CIA, plus Western bankers and NATO warlords. There was also international pressure caused by Al-Jazeera’s support for the Bahrain government’s savage crushing of protesters.]
As operations head of Al-Jazeera (2007 – 2011) Wadah Khanfar strove to make the network ever-more pro-Israel and pro-West, while also appealing to radical Islamists who ally with Israel and the West if they think it will bring them power over their fellow Arabs. For example, Mr. Khanfar appointed Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi as Al-Jazeera’s “spiritual counselor’ and star preacher. Mr. Qaradawi, the Al-Jazeera voice of the Muslim Brotherhood, supports wife-beating, female circumcision, death for homosexuals, Shiite-bashing, and so on.
[SIDE NOTE: Speaking of Islamist whores, the article below from Israel Today says that thousands of Arab Islamists and Al Qaeda-types have sent requests to Israeli government agencies, hoping to work for Mossad or the Israeli military. The Israeli government also gets requests from members of Arab parliaments, and Arab political movements such as the Muslim Brotherhood. These are the same terrorists that Israel and the West claim to oppose. I will comment on this article at the end of this post.
Wadah Khanfar soon became the darling of Western bankers and warmongers, and frequently gave speeches at right-wing propaganda mills in Washington, such as the Middle East Institute, New America Foundation, and Council on Foreign Relations.
During his frequent visits to the USA he also met with senior officials and advisors at the White House, Pentagon, US Dept. of State, and U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency to learn what Israel and the USA wanted Al-Jazeera to show and say.
THE 2011 SHIFT
In early 2011, Mr. Wadah Khanfar used Al-Jazeera to support the “Arab spring” myth, according to which people throughout the Middle East and North Africa are seeking Western-style “democracies.” Al-Jazeera made no distinction between the events in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Syria, and largely ignored the popular movements in Yemen and Bahrain, as they did not draw enough viewers.
At the highly influential TED 2011 conference (Technology Entertainment and Design, a kind of high-tech Bilderbergers meeting) Mr. Khanfar spoke of the “birth of a new era in the Arab world”; an era defined by “tolerance, democracy, and freedom.”
Of course the current “Arab Spring” farce is simply a replay of what the West did in the 1920s in order to seize the former Ottoman provinces and install puppet “parliamentary democracies” under Western control.
Al-Jazeera’s coverage of the Tunisian and Egyptian revolts was designed to steer and manage the protests so that whatever governments came out of the turmoil, they would remain pro-Western and pro-Israeli. In Egypt, Al-Jazeera harnessed the uprising in the interest of the Muslim Brotherhood, embodied by Al-Jazeera’s star preacher Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the mad Islamist noted above.
Outraged by Al-Jazeera’s editorial policy of all lies, all the time, many journalists, including Ghassan Ben Jeddou, walked out the network in April 2011, slamming the door behind them.
[SIDE NOTE: For example, during Russia’s annual May Day parade on 1 May 2011, Al-Jazeera planted a handful of Russian actors among a crowd of 40,000, and had them condemn Syria’s Assad. Al-Jazeera then edited the footage to make it seem that most Russians want Assad dead, which is totally false. Some scenes showed protesters throwing eggs and mayonnaise to express their hatred of Assad. In reality these were gay activists expressing their hatred of Moscow’s new mayor.]
WHO’S PULLING THE INFORMATION STRINGS?
Only when Al-Jazeera startted cheerleading NATO’s genocidal attack on Libya did the Arab masses wake up, and the masks begin to fall.
Through his JTrack training activities, Mahmoud Jibril (the new NATO-installed boss of Libya) established personal relationships with almost all Arab and Southeast Asian leaders. JTrack had offices in Bahrain and Singapore.
Mr. Jibril also created trading companies, including one that dealt in Malaysian and Australian timber, established in partnership with his close friend, the ultra-militant Jew warmonger, Bernard-Henri Levy of France.
Mahmoud Jibril started his university studies in Cairo, and later continued his studies in the United States, where he adoted the pro-banker “free market” views that he later used to dismantle Gaddafi’s populist policies.
Also, Mr. Jibril joined the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya, and convinced the Qatari emir to install the militant Islamist Yusuf al-Qaradawi (of the Muslim Brotherhood) as Al-Jazeera’s star preacher.
In cheerleading NATO attack on Libya, Al-Jazeera started teaching the Western media how propaganda should be done. In most cases the Western media has simply repeated lies told by Al-Jazeera.
The network has gone to great lengths to hide the anti-imperialist and anti-Zionist aspect of the Arab revolutions, and hand picks actors in each country that advance pro-Western lies.
Naturally Al-Jazeera supports the murderous king of Bahrain, himself a student of Mahmoud Jibril. Meanwhile Al-Jazeera’s “spiritual counselor” Sheikh al-Qaradawi called for a Jihad against Gaddafi and Assad, falsely accusing them of murdering their own people.
With Mr Jibril installed by NATO as Libya’s new boss, the height of duplicity was reached when Al-Jazeera built a replica of the Tripoli’s Green Square and Bab-el-Azizia compound in the Al-Jazeera studios in Doha, Qatar. Al-Jazeera concocted footage of NATO-backed Islamist “revolutionaries” entering Tripoli, and broadcast it on Al-Jazeera, Sky News, and other networks to confuse and terrify the people of Tripoli.
What was happening? Had the NATO rats actually invaded? Amid this confusion, NATO began a massive new bombardment and helicopter-strafing of Tripoli civilians, thereby opening the way for “rebels” from Misrata to enter Tripoli three days later, commanded by NATO and Qatari officers.
Al-Jazeera also falsely claimed that the NATO rats had captured Gaddafi’s son Saif el-Islam, plus several of his other sons, and that the “rebels” were preparing them for shipment to the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands. To counter these Al-Jazeera lies, Saif el-Islam presented himself to journalists holed up at the Rixos Hotel, and lead them to the real Bal el-Azizia square in Tripoli, thousands of miles away from the fake Al-Jazeera mockup in Qatar.
When Arabic-language channel France24 questioned Mustafa Jalil about the lies spread by him and Al-Jazeera, Mustafa Jalil (the NATO-installed head of the NTC) boasted that the lies were a war stratagem, and he was delighted that they had accelerated the fall of Tripoli.
WHAT FUTURE FOR AL-JAZEERA?
The conversion of Al-Jazeera into an Israeli / Western / Gulf Arab propaganda tool was achieved with the leadership of the emir of Qatar. The six emirates of the Gulf Cooperation Council were the first to call for a NATO attack, and Qatar was the first among them to join the NATO war council known as the “Libyan Contact Group.”
The emir of Qatar sent weapons and ground troops to the NATO “rebels,” especially during the Battle of Tripoli. In exchange, the National Transitional Council awarded the emir exclusive contracts to control much of Libya’s future oil trade.
It is too early to say whether the resignation of Wadah Khanfar heralds Al-Jazeera’s desire to recover the credibility that took 15 years to build and only 6 months to lose.
I mentioned that Israel Today article, which says that thousands of Arab Islamists and Al Qaeda-types have sent requests to Israeli government agencies, hoping to work for Mossad or the Israeli military.
How can this be?
The West and Israel support the same “Islamists” that the West and Israel claim to oppose, since the Islamists want to overthrow governments that stand in the way of Jews and bankers.
Islamists don’t care about Jews and bankers. They just want money and power for themselves, and they will work for anyone who gives it to them, including Jews and bankers. The West paid them to fight the Soviets, and now pays them to fight Gaddafi and Assad.
Osama bin Laden was one of these Islamist whores. Beginning in 1986 he helped the West train Libyan terrorists in the Salman al-Farisi camp in Pakistan for action against the Soviets in Afghanistan.
After the USSR fell, the CIA flew Osama bin Laden and his Libyan jihadists to Sudan, to fight against the anti-US government there. In 1994, still working for the USA, Osama sent some of his Libyan assassins back to Libya to kill Gaddafy, and reverse the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. The assassins failed, despite being helped by England’s MI6, and they tried three more times. In 1996 when Sudan’s government closed in on Bin Laden, the CIA flew him and his group back to Afghanistan.
Gaddafy despised these killers, and foolishly believed that the West was serious about fighting them, when in the fact the West was paying them to kill him. Gaddafy joined the “war on terror” against Al Qaeda, not realizing that “Al Qaeda” is a hotbed of Western-paid mercenaries in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, Kosovo, Iraq, and now Libya, Syria and Yemen.
In 1998 Gaddafy asked Interpol to issue an arrest warrant against Osama bin Laden, but Osama had U.S. protection (and continued to have it up to the day of his death).
On 8 December 2004, the U.S. State Department put the Osama bin Laden’s “Libyan Islamic Fighter Group” (LIFG) on its list of terrorist organizations, even though the USA was paying this group. It is still on the USA’s terrorist list today, and is still on the USA payroll. On 7 Feb 2006 the United Nations adopted sanctions against five members of the LIFG and the four companies linked to them, but they continue to operate unfettered in England under MI6 protection.
Islamist mercenaries also include the Muslim Brotherhood. If the West wants regime change, then it pays Islamist mercenaries to bring it about. If the West has a puppet dictator, and opposes regime change, then it attacks Islamists as part of the “war on terror.” For example, when the West had Mubarak, it vilified the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Now the West has a puppet military junta, and is paying the Muslim Brotherhood to overthrow Assad in Syria.
The Muslim Brotherhood controls the “Syrian National Transitional Council” in Turkey, which wants NATO to bomb Syria so this group can be the equivalent of the NTC in Libya.
In the meantime, the Muslim Brotherhood conducts terrorist acts inside Syria, killing thousands. The Western media blames Syria’s government for this violence, and the stupid Western masses angrily defend the lies.
The Muslim Brotherhod wants to impose Sharia law, which Jews and the West claim to oppose, but actually support as a means to control the Arab masses. It is the Israeli / Islamist / Western dream to make every Arab nation like the brutal Gulf emirates that are allied with Israel and the West (e.g. Saudi Arabia).
Islamists say Sharia is about “moral values,” but morality is a mask for their immorality. Islam and Sharia are camouflage for their attempts to get power over their fellow Arabs. (Christian fundamentalists use religion and “morality” for the same selfish reason…to get power.)
So don’t mourn Osama bin Laden. He didn’t like Western occupation of Muslim nations, but he was always a CIA asset, and a soldier in the bankers’ global war on the masses. The USA called him the world’s biggest terrorist, and blamed him for Mossad’s 9-11 attack, but protected him until he died in December 2001.
Indeed the FBI never put him on its most wanted list until after the fake “second death” of Osama on 2 May 2011, at which time Osama was listed as “deceased.”
