Amber Alert called off for sisters near New York-Ontario border

The Girls are safe.

Aug 14, 2014

Two missing Amish sisters turned up safe Thursday evening, about 24 hours after they were apparently abducted from their family’s roadside farm stand in northern New York, authorities said.

St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain said the girls turned up cold and wet but unharmed at a home in Richville, about 20 kilometres from where they disappeared in the rural town of Oswegatchie.

The girls were dropped off and knocked on the door, asking for help getting home. A neighbour who visited the Miller family after hearing word of the girls’ return said she spoke with one of their brothers, who said they were well and being checked out.

There were no details immediately available on what happened to the girls or if there are suspects in their disappearance.

Amber Alert issued for missing girls Delila Miller and Fannie Miller

Police say girls disappeared from roadside stand in Oswegatchie, NY., 190 km south of Ottawa

Aug 14, 2014

Searchers scoured a patch of far northern New York on Thursday for two Amish girls who were apparently abducted from their family’s roadside farm stand, a hunt hampered by the lack of photos of the girls for authorities to circulate among a frightened community.

The sisters, 7-year-old Delila Miller and 12-year-old Fannie Miller, vanished around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday after a white car pulled up to the farm stand near Oswegatchie, a community of about 4,000 people that’s 190 kilometres south of Ottawa and 240 kilometres northwest of the capital, Albany.

Both were wearing dark blue dresses with blue aprons and black bonnets.

The poster for the missing girls indicates Fannie Miller is cross-eyed, while Delila Miller has a round scar on her forehead and she is missing her front teeth. Both girls have brown hair and brown eyes.

Because the Amish tend to shun modern technology, police have no photographs of the girls.

He also noted that English isn’t the girls’ first language and that anyone who talks with them may notice a Pennsylvania Dutch dialect.

The vehicle has been described as a small, white, four-door sedan.

Girls could be in Canada

Divers plumbed the nearby St. Lawrence River to rule out the possibility the girls were in the water, Wells said at an afternoon news briefing.

Helicopters and search teams on foot tried to make sure they weren’t near the family home, and investigators were talking with nearby registered sex offenders.

“We will aggressively pursue this case as a worst-case scenario,” Wells said. Authorities are pursuing “numerous leads,” he said.

Ottawa police and Ontario Provincial Police said they have received the Amber Alert. An OPP spokesman said the girls could have been kidnapped and taken into Canada.

The girls are among the youngest of Mose and Barb Miller’s 13 children, who range in age from one to 21 years, neighbour Dot Simmons said.

The girls routinely took on the chore of selling the fruits, vegetables, jams and other products of the farm, Simmons said. On Wednesday, the entire family had gone to the barn as usual for evening milking.

But, Simmons said, “The girls were always on watch if someone stopped to buy vegetables.”

When the family noticed the girls hadn’t returned, they quickly checked the cornfield, she said, knowing it was unlikely they would have wandered off. That’s when police were notified, and an Amber Alert was sent out.

Over 4,000 have been arrested to date.

Police brutality is growing.

Police Evicted from Occupy UC Davis after Pepper Spraying Peaceful Protesters

November 18 3011

If you haven’t seen this video yet from yesterday’s police action at Occupy UC Davis, you have to watch it, and watch it through the end. Honestly… it brought tears to my eyes. Tears of joy.

It starts with a group of students quietly and peaceful sitting on the ground and linking arms as they are viciously pepper sprayed by UC Davis police… officers whose job it is to protect them. You can’t see from this video, but reports and photos from the campus newspaper, the California Aggie, show that the students were sitting in a circle around a small group of tents at an encampment in the university quad.

The attack on the students is provoked by nothing except their refusal to obey police orders. The usual chaos ensues for a few minutes. Victims shriek in pain, while some in the crowd frantically search for water. Several of the protesters are cuffed and dragged away, rather than receiving the medical attention they need. It is outrageous. It is unforgivable. And then something amazing happens.

The remaining students, who far outnumber the contingent of police, slowly start to encircle the officers while chanting “Shame on you!” The chants get louder and more menacing as the crowd gets closer, herding the police into a defensive huddle. Officers raise their weapons toward the crowd, warning them to back off, but at this distance and in these numbers, their riot gear would offer them little protection should the crowd suddenly charge. Sensing their advantage, the students change their chant to the more defiant “Whose university? Our university!” Tensions rise. One twitchy trigger finger and anything could happen. Then a lone voice initiates the familiar call and response of the human mic:

Voice: “Mic check!”
Crowd: “Mic check!”

Voice: “We are willing…”
Crowd: “We are willing…”

Voice: “To give you a brief moment…”
Crowd: “To give you a brief moment…”

Voice: “Of peace…”
Crowd: “Of peace…”

Voice: “In order to take your weapons…”
Crowd: “In order to take your weapons…”

Voice: “And your friends…”
Crowd: “And your friends…”

Voice: “And go.”
Crowd: “And go.”

Voice: “Please do not return…”
Crowd: “Please do not return…”

Voice: “We are giving you a moment of peace.”
Crowd: “We are giving you a moment of peace.”

The crowd then starts chanting “You can go! You can go!”, and after a few moments the police turn their backs to the crowd and do exactly that, wisely taking advantage of the offered truce, and eliciting cheers and applause from the crowd.

Two quick observations. First, anybody who defends the use of pepper spray in situations like this is not only defending police brutality, but clearly advocating for the incitement of violence. Everybody involved, the officers and the students, are fortunate that the crowd showed such admirable restraint.

Second, anybody who still dismisses civil disobedience of this sort—resisting the removal of illegal encampments—as either inappropriate or counterproductive to the message and aims of the Occupy movement, has their head stuck thoroughly up their ass. This is what democracy looks like. Source

Oakland Cops Beat Iraq war veteran Kayvan Sabehgi

Protester and three-tour American veteran Kayvan Sabehgi was beaten by Oakland police during the Occupy protest’s general strike on 2 November. Sabehgi, who was ‘completely peaceful’, according to witnesses, was left with a lacerated spleen. It is all too obvious the police attacked him. Sabehgi, 32, an Oakland resident and former marine who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, has since undergone surgery on his spleen. He says it took hours for him to be taken to hospital, despite complaining of severe pain.

Around 1.5 million homeless as US enters 2011

December 30 2010

With the New Year just a day ahead, the United States has about 1.5 million people in need of shelter. How dire is the situation? We got some insight from Massachusetts social worker Jay S. Levy.
Jay S. Levy’s recently published book Homeless Narratives & Pretreatment Pathways: From Words to Housing (Loving Healing Press, 2010) is about homelessness and the issues related to outreach counseling, case management, and advocacy for long-term and episodically homeless individuals. Jay’s book presents real-life narratives of homeless people with whom the author worked to help them with housing, care, and treatment. The book discusses several key points involved in successful transition of people from homelessness to housing, and afterward. Jay has spent the last 20 years working with individuals who experience homelessness. He is currently employed by Massachusetts’ Eliot CHS-Homeless Services as the Western and Central MA Regional Manager for the statewide SAMHSA-PATH Program. In the following conversation, Jay talks about the fundamental facts and findings on homelessness, drawing on his personal experience of working for and with the homeless. Ernest: Hello Jay! It’s the first time for me to talk to an expert about homelessness. Now the general view of a homeless person is one who lives in the open and can’t financially afford living in a house. Is that correct? Jay: Firstly, thanks for the opportunity to discuss the important issue of homelessness. This is a very broad issue and the word homeless can encompass many things. It refers to individuals as well as to families. People are considered homeless if they are residing at a shelter, or outside, or in a vehicle, or any place that is normally not meant for human habitation. Some definitions of homelessness include the large numbers of people doubled up or couch surfing… adults or families who have no home of their own, but are dependent upon others for shelter. The HUD definition of homelessness does not include this large number of doubled up persons and is more restricted to counting people who are living outside or residing in homeless shelters. As you’ve mentioned, there is almost always a financial issue that intersects with any homeless situation, but the reasons and causes of homelessness are numerous. Ernest: So, as we speak here, how many people are homeless in America? Jay: There are various estimates and counts that are different due to either the definition of homelessness or the methodology used. Every year, HUD authorizes a point in time count that is done by the various continuums of care (regional networks) across the nation. The 2009 count reports over 643,000 persons, which is composed of approximately 63% individuals and 37% families and children. It is a one-night snapshot of homelessness, so the number is far less than reflected in the yearly count (HUD AHAR, 2010) that estimates over 1.5 million people seeking shelter. This includes the vast majority of short-term homeless folks that use the shelter on a temporary basis, while in between jobs and relationships, or for some other reason lack access to income or affordable housing. Also, it should be noted that the vast majority of adults that comprise homeless families are women, while homeless single adults are predominantly men. When you factor in the unsheltered population throughout an entire year or other definitions of homelessness, the estimates range from 2.3 to 3.5 million people who are homeless annually (Burt and Aron). A researcher by the name of Dennis Culhane has shared some important data that indicates that over a one year period, approximately 80% of individuals experiencing homelessness are in shelters on a short-term basis due to temporary setbacks resulting from job loss and lack of access to housing. In fact, our observations (among outreach workers) have confirmed that the vast majority of homeless persons very quickly cycle in and out of homelessness. That being said, jobs have really dried up and the economic tailspin has led to greater than nine percent unemployment. This has already negatively impacted family homelessness where the numbers have steadily risen over the past couple of years and there is concern that a similar trend may be now occurring with individuals. Ernest: What are some other reasons besides financial fragility that render people homeless in America? Jay: There are many things that are considered contributing factors that go beyond income and affordable housing issues. What we find among homeless individuals is a range of functioning levels, as well as chronic medical, substance abuse, and mental health issues are all part of the picture in conjunction with poverty and lack of affordable housing. Trauma and homelessness are clearly interlocked. What one experiences in order to become homeless can be emotionally devastating. The lasting effects may or may not warrant the DSM diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but its impact remains profound and enduring. Sub-groups among the long-term homeless have experienced trauma at different levels. In fact, it is not unusual to meet homeless persons who have experienced layered trauma from an array of traumatic events. Veterans account for at least 13% of homeless individuals in America (HUD AHAR, 2010, p. 16) and many have experienced combat trauma. While less frequent, it is not unusual to meet homeless men and women, with foster care histories, who report profound physical and/or sexual trauma during their childhoods. Further, there are others who have sustained traumatic brain injury (TBI). An impact brain injury can cause major functional impairment, as well as significant psychological difficulty from the traumatic event that caused it. In addition, the high occurrence of substance abuse among homeless individuals (HUD AHAR, 2010, p. 22) and the associated lack of judgment and unstable relationships can result in the increased likelihood of witnessing or directly experiencing personal violence. This is especially true when you consider the unsafe living conditions that homeless persons often endure. The numbers of people who are homeless and have experienced trauma are significant, and so it is vital that a trauma-informed approach is adopted and consistently utilized. Finally, it should be noted that one of the main causes of homelessness is institutional discharges. Whether it be from foster care, the hospitals (mental health & medical), or the jails, people are discharged on a daily basis into homelessness without access to affordable housing and without adequate follow up plans. The long-term homeless are comprised of unaccompanied adults and couples who have been homeless for a year or more, as well as folks who have experienced multiple episodes of homelessness. Many of these people suffer from chronic medical issues, mental illness, and addictions, as well as from not having a home. We call this group the chronically homeless and this is where my expertise and interest converges. A significant percentage of this group consists of highly vulnerable people and unfortunately, every year many of them die from untreated illness and/or exposure to the elements. Our mission is to reach out to long-term homeless individuals and to build pathways to housing and needed treatment. My book tells the stories of different people experiencing long-term homelessness and gives an intricate view of the challenges inherent to building these pathways. In many instances, the outreach worker and client go on a figurative and literal journey in pursuit of housing, stability, and a better quality of life. That’s why my book is entitled “Homeless Narratives & Pretreatment Pathways: From Words to Housing”. I want to get beyond the numbers and tell people’s stories in an effort to provide a better connection between policy, programs, clinical approaches, and what people are really experiencing on the ground. Ernest: I assume the homeless are more vulnerable to accidents and diseases. What kinds of threats/misfortunes are these homeless people generally prone to, as tells your experience? Jay: The world of a person experiencing homelessness is fraught with challenges to one’s safety and it is not unusual to witness or experience violence. Many homeless individuals avoid the shelters due to fear for their own safety or concerns around their belongings being stolen. However, there is a catch 22 because if you stay outside in areas that either get exceedingly cold or hot, you are at risk for issues ranging from dehydration and heat stroke to frostbite and hypothermia. Many of the homeless we meet suffer from chronic untreated medical conditions. A national survey of homeless providers and their clients (Burt, et al. 1999, p. xix) found that 46% of these clients report chronic health conditions such as arthritis, cancer, diabetes, liver disease, HIV/AIDS, etc. These health issues, as well as chronic mental illness and addiction, are only exacerbated by unsafe, substandard living conditions that lack basic access to food, clean clothes, sanitary bathroom facilities, and a secure place to sleep. Additional research (Hwang et al., 1998; Hwang, 2000) shows that adults who are homeless and unsheltered for at least 6 months are at high risk of death if they fit one or more of the following criteria: age above 60, three or more visits to the emergency room during the prior 3 months, triple diagnosed (major mental illness, substance abuse, medical illness), history of frostbite and/or hypothermia or immersion foot, other medical conditionscirrhosis, heart failure, renal failure. When one considers the impact of unstable and chaotic environments on health issues, it’s hard to fathom why healthcare professionals and residential programs serving at-risk homeless individuals have often prioritized compliance with treatment above housing placement. It is clear that successful treatment is often dependent upon living conditions that promote, rather than diminish, health and safety. This is one of the main reasons why housing first initiatives and harm reduction approaches are vital to successfully addressing long term homelessness. Ernest: Okay Jay, tell us a little about the resources and services available to a person experiencing homelessness? Jay: I have found that many people with in the homeless community are very savvy as to where to find needed resources and services. The outreach worker is well served to use this naturally evolving community resource base, in addition to surfing the Internet or abiding by local service directories. That being said… one of the more important tasks of outreach work is to help people to become acquainted and eligible for the array of basic services and resources that are available, as well as serve as a guide through the bureaucratic maze that one inevitably encounters. It is critical that homeless persons are able to access what they need in order to survive and move beyond homelessness. Most major urban centers such as Washington DC, New York City, and Boston provide access to meal programs, shelters, Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), Social Security offices, and housing authorities, as well as other homeless providers. However, smaller urban centers and rural areas often lack needed resources, making it difficult to find basic things… like food and shelter! In addition, public transportation is often not available to help people reach more resource and service rich areas. On the other end of the spectrum, one of the more exciting developments has been the promulgation of Housing First alternatives. A housing first approach recognizes that the critical intervention is to house people as rapidly as possible, while simultaneously offering support services, but not require treatment as a prerequisite to getting housed. This approach has shown some initial success by demonstrating housing retention and reducing the financial costs associated with homelessness (Stefancic and Tsemberis, 2007). Out in Western MA, where I work, and many other places, such as Denver, NYC, and Boston, we have begun providing affordable housing alternatives with support services that long-term homeless persons can easily access as long as they’re agreeable to taking on the challenges of paying rent, getting along with neighbors, and taking care of their apartment. There is some compelling evidence that housing First Programs have not only reduced financial costs and the numbers of unsheltered long-term homeless individuals, but it has also saved people’s lives. Many of the people who are among the long-term homeless are untreated while suffering from major mental illnesses, addictions, and chronic medical issues. They often lack the necessary insight and judgment to accept needed treatment services unless they are first housed and then provided with the opportunity to gradually build trusting relationships with service providers. Housing First can and does eventually lead to treatment, while keeping people safe from the elements. It is the ultimate harm reduction program! Ernest: And what are some of the major roles that government and non government entities can serve in helping the homeless in America? Jay: Considering the reported difficulties of accessing resources and services and the dizzying effects of needless bureaucracy, it is important to utilize what we have in the most efficient manner possible. Currently, Ten and Five Year Plans have been developed and implemented in an effort to end chronic homelessness, and thereby reduce social and financial costs (All Roads Lead Home, 2008; The Commonwealth of MA, 2003; National Alliance to End Homelessness, 2000). Ultimately, these plans are based on collaborative efforts between concerned individuals, advocacy groups, local city and town employees, politicians, policy makers, non-profit service providers, charities, businesses, etc. These collaborative networks are being established to address fundamental issues such as developing affordable housing with support services, promoting better access to community-based resources and services, and implementing strategies of prevention in order to reduce future homelessness. Advocates and policy makers now understand that addressing access, resource and prevention issues are paramount, if we are to be successful in turning long-term homelessness into a rare or unusual phenomenon. This has culminated in the Obama Administration’s recent unveiling of the first National Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness (US Interagency Council on Homelessness, 2010). This plan declares support for housing first initiatives and continued interagency collaboration in an effort to make significant inroads with both families and individuals. While this is good news from the standpoint of new cooperative networks and more efficient use of resources, this does not directly address macroeconomic issues that impact unemployment, underemployment, and the lack of affordable housing. Ernest: Tell me Jay, what can the layman do to help the homeless? Jay: There are a number of things that can be done. Many positive things can happen when there is a sense of caring and human contact. Get to know the names of some of the homeless persons that you frequently meet in your daily travels or in your neighborhood. Don’t be afraid to ask if they are getting any help or if there are any basic things that they need. If you are wary of donating money directly to a person experiencing homelessness, consider giving them need items such as food, clothes, or even information regarding a nearby resource center. Many organizations working for the homeless accept financial donations. If you know of any homeless services and resources, it’s a pretty sure bet that these organizations are financially strained. Consider donating, but doing so toward funding a specific cause such as providing rental assistance and supporting transitions to housing. Many other places like the Salvation Army or community resource centers accept donations of food, household items, and clothes. Another nice way to contribute is by way of volunteer service. Currently, my daughter volunteers her time at a Survival Center that provides clothing, serves hot meals, and has a food pantry that serves our local community, which includes the homeless. Meal programs are often in need of volunteers to help prepare and serve meals to people who are struggling to make ends meet. Ernest: For all interested readers, would you tell us who and/or where to reach for help in case some homeless person/family is noticed in search of help? Jay: The key is to find out what are the homeless resources and services in your area. Every state has PATH programs that are funded by both state and federal dollars. PATH stands for Projects for Assistance in Transitions from Homelessness. The people in charge of these programs are very informed regarding homeless resources and services. Most states have funded various non-profits, so you want to locate the right service provider for your region. This can be done by going to the following website: http://pathprogram.samhsa.gov/Channel/Default.aspx. Once you get to the PATH-SAMHSA website, just click on the “Grantees” tab and then you can do a search for the homeless service organization that serves your particular state and region. I work for Eliot CHS-Homeless Services and we are the sole PATH Provider serving Massachusetts. I am the regional manager for both Central and Western Massachusetts and have counterparts that manage the North East and South East regions of our state. Our program is listed on the PATH website and if someone were to call, we could direct them to critical resources and services. Other places to look for help include the local Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), where people can access Food Stamps, Emergency Assistance funds, and health insurance. Local DTA caseworkers normally have access to information on family and individual shelters and meal programs across the region that they cover. If that fails, an Internet search under homeless shelters and/or meal programs for your particular area will most likely yield results. Finally, check your local phone directory under Social & Human Services, or inquire with your local church or synagogue. Places of faith are often quite involved with supporting community meal programs and other charitable efforts toward helping those who are most in need. Directing a homeless family or person to local resources and services can be the first critical step toward attaining critical assistance ranging from shelters and meals to healthcare and housing. Ernest: Many thanks Jay for sharing your precious knowledge and taking time for this talk! Jay: I appreciate you taking the time to interviewing me, and providing a forum for talking about these important issues. If anyone would like more information on my book including some recent reviews, please check out my website. Thanks! Source

World Wide Occupy Wall Street Protests

‘US plans to suppress OWS protesters’
November 18 2011
The US government is making ‘coordinated efforts’ aimed at suppressing the ‘Occupy’ movement that has spread across the country, an American journalist says.

“The fact that all the mayors seem to be reading from a script when they explain why they are cracking down, it’s almost ludicrous how they use the same excuses, the same wording, and the same techniques,” author and investigative journalist, David Lindorff said during an interview with Press TV’s US Desk.

According to Lindorff, Oakland’s mayor Jean Quan, has admitted to having a conference call with 18 other mayors, while in Washington.

Lindorff added that he is almost certain the call was organized by the US government, most likely “by someone like Janet Napolitano from the Homeland Security.”

The investigative journalist further criticized the unnecessary violent response peaceful protesters were receiving from riot police, questioning their claims of concerns “about sanitation and safety.”

The Occupy movement owes its name to ‘Occupy Wall Street’ (OWS), which emerged on September 17, when a group of demonstrators gathered in New York’s financial district to protest social inequality and top-level corruption in the country.

Despite police hindrance and mass arrests, the Occupy movement has now spread to major US cities.

The movement has also inspired similar pushes across the world, including in Australia, Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, and Portugal.  Source

We fabricated drug charges against innocent people to meet arrest quotas, former NYPD detective testifies

By John Marzulli
October 13 2011

A former NYPD narcotics detective snared in a corruption scandal testified it was common practice to fabricate drug charges against innocent people to meet arrest quotas.

The bombshell testimony from Stephen Anderson is the first public account of the twisted culture behind the false arrests in the Brooklyn South and Queens narc squads, which led to the arrests of eight cops and a massive shakeup.

Anderson, testifying under a cooperation agreement with prosecutors, was busted for planting cocaine, a practice known as “flaking,” on four men in a Queens bar in 2008 to help out fellow cop Henry Tavarez, whose buy-and-bust activity had been low.

“Tavarez was … was worried about getting sent back [to patrol] and, you know, the supervisors getting on his case,” he recounted at the corruption trial of Brooklyn South narcotics Detective Jason Arbeeny.

“I had decided to give him [Tavarez] the drugs to help him out so that he could say he had a buy,” Anderson testified last week in Brooklyn Supreme Court.

He made clear he wasn’t about to pass off the two legit arrests he had made in the bar to Tavarez.

“As a detective, you still have a number to reach while you are in the narcotics division,” he said.

NYPD officials did not respond to a request for comment.

Anderson worked in the Queens and Brooklyn South narcotics squads and was called to the stand at Arbeeny’s bench trial to show the illegal conduct wasn’t limited to a single squad.

“Did you observe with some frequency this … practice which is taking someone who was seemingly not guilty of a crime and laying the drugs on them?” Justice Gustin Reichbach asked Anderson.

“Yes, multiple times,” he replied.

The judge pressed Anderson on whether he ever gave a thought to the damage he was inflicting on the innocent.

“It was something I was seeing a lot of, whether it was from supervisors or undercovers and even investigators,” he said.

“It’s almost like you have no emotion with it, that they attach the bodies to it, they’re going to be out of jail tomorrow anyway; nothing is going to happen to them anyway.”

The city paid $300,000 to settle a false arrest suit by Jose Colon and his brother Maximo, who were falsely arrested by Anderson and Tavarez. A surveillance tape inside the bar showed they had been framed.

A federal judge presiding over the suit said the NYPD’s plagued by “widespread falsification” by arresting officers. Source

How quint nothing like being charged with a crime you did not commit. This is not the first and certainly will not be the last. This type of false arrest is probably rather common in the US. I am sure others have been charged with bogus crimes as well.

There is an old saying if there is one there are many more.

Unfortunately not all can prove their innocence like these two brothers.

Wall Street/Washington Protesters an Inspiration to Behold

Who is protesting on Wall Street? Protesters speak up

NEW YORK — One is a Harvard graduate who was laid off from her publishing job. Another is a retired teacher. Both marched this week in lower Manhattan, protesting for the first time in their lives.

As the Occupy Wall Street protests expand and gain support from new sources, what began three weeks ago as a group of mostly young people camping out on the streets has morphed into something different. It’s now an umbrella movement for people of varying ages, life situations and grievances.

Karen Livecchia has what she calls two “fancy degrees,” including a master’s from New York University. The 49-year-old never thought she’d be chanting in the streets. But on Wednesday, she was collecting signatures at the march.

Nancy Pi-Sunyer also was drawn into the fray. The 66-year-old couldn’t protest during the civil rights movement or the Vietnam war. She wants her voice to be heard now.

Thousands of demonstrators take to the streets of major American cities, demonstrating against the financial system, inequality, the high jobless rate in the U.S. and ‘greedy’ corporations.

The woman above really doesn’t look like much of a threat to society now does she?

This the typical American criminal these days. If you can’t shut them up then throw them in prison. Your tax dollars hard at work. Is this how you want you tax dollars spent?  All she was doing was standing up for her rights as an American citizen and she was also standing up for your rights as well. The ones running Wall Street are the real criminals, not her.

Have you ever really though about how your tax dollars are wasted.

Arresting innocent people cost taxpayers a fortune. The cost of arresting the woman above will cost you the tax payer, about $20 to $30 thousand dollars or more. Inflation you know. All because she was standing up for your rights.

Bailouts cost the American tax payers a fortune.

War costs tax payers a fortune.

Corporations cost tax payers a fortune. Their pollution not only costs money to clean up, but it kills people. Try getting rid of a polluter in your neighborhood. The IMF and World Bank help polluting corporations into third world countries to steal resources,  pollute the environment and steal the land. Nice bunch of criminals I must say. .

Free Trade agreements cost taxpayers a fortune and jobs. They also increase poverty anywhere they have been implemented. Free Trade agreements also give Corporations more power then Governments.

Not only do the corporations make money, the US politicians make a fortune on these things. They certainly know which stock options to buy to get rich now don’t they? The American Government is one of the most corrupt bunch of criminals you will find along with Wall Street.

Seems the protesters are not the criminals here. They are the ones who want to expose who the real criminals are.

Knowing what I know about the American corruption,  my heart goes out to all the protesters.

Seems to me the protesters are the ones who took the time to get educated on the facts.

Education is suffering in the US and elsewhere.  They are not teaching children as they should. The survey says and I have heard this  thousands of times. Why did they not teach us this in school. The fact is they are not teaching you, because they do not want you to know the truth. They teach you only what they want you to know.

The stupider you are, the easier it is for them to manipulate you. If you want an education, well these days one has to educate themselves.

US politicians, including President Barack Obama, have been calling on Europe to fix its debt crisis, amid fears it will have a negative impact on the fragile US economy.
But there is evidence that the Greek debt crisis began on Wall Street, at the hands of one controversial US bank.
According to former financial regulators, Goldman Sachs made a dozen derivative deals with the Greeks a decade ago, writing its debt off its balance sheet for a number of years.
They also say that Goldman and Greece were not the only ones working such transactions.

Teacher Patricia McAllister was crucified for daring to simply say outloud that Zionists controlled Wall Street while helping in an Occupy Wall Street demo in Los Angeles. She was fired for simply telling the truth. LA talkshow host Bill Handel said on his show just a few days earlier, quote, “My Tribe Controls Wall Street why should I be upset about that?” Of course, he wasn’t fired because he is part of the tribe that runs the media.
So, what are the facts? This video lays out the facts of the Zionist control of Wall Street and International finance like nothing else!
Help give this video to the world!

One has to think it comes from Afghanistan.  Considering the Taliban had all but irradiated the Poppies/Heroin from there, since the US and NATO invaded Afghanistan Heroin production has skyrocketed.

Who is responsible for the Heroin trade? NATO and the  US.

TIME SQUARE BOMB HOAX, Israeli Intel Group Shows It’s Hand

ISRAELIS BLAME TALIBAN GROUP, ONE THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH FOR YEARS

May 2 2010

By Gordon Duff

Who would have believed it?  Only days after a warning of an Israeli “false flag” bombing against the US “in the works” a massive car bomb is discovered in Time Square!  Better yet, though no intelligence organization in the world could discover anyone claiming responsibility for this embarrassing failure, SITE Intelligence, a group rumored as the “voice of the Mossad” has placed the blame on the Pakistani Taliban.

This is the same group that has come up with numerous bin Laden “audio” tapes, seemingly, though tiny and nearly totally unstaffed, whenever it is convenient for Israel to point a finger at someone, magically Site Intelligence, run by former IDF soldier Rita Katz, whose father was executed as a spy by Saddam Hussein, makes another “unbelievable” intelligence find.

Site Intelligence finds are not only timely for Israel, when the world is focused on claims they have been planning a ‘dirty bomb’ attack to send the US to war against Iran, but always tend to support mysterious organizations run from the caves of the Afghanistan/Pakistan border region.

With the demise of Al Qaeda, an unnamed Taliban organization with a website only visible to one person on earth has now declared a mysterious and shadowy war against the United States, in New York City, a city under tight security but one with a very large Israeli/Mossad presence.

This was the same city where the “dancing Israeli’s,” celebrated 9/11 after filming the attacks.  Their advance knowledge of the attacks has been one of the many puzzle pieces tying Israel to 9/11.

However, it wasn’t until the “crotch bomber” of last Christmas that the breadth of Israel’s penetration of US security was demonstrated with Abdulmohammed’s attack tying directly to Tel Aviv.

Anyone who visits New York is aware that security there, especially in Time Square is the highest of anywhere in the world.  The intelligence organizations protecting New York, including the world’s best police force, leave only one organization as capable of this kind of effort, an organization with massive resources in the area, numerous Israeli/American assets and many residual relationships with Gulliani/Kerik/Bush era friends, friends conveniently “asleep at the switch” on 9/11.

TIMING

Recent intelligence leaks from several agencies have warned of an impending “9/11 style” attack on a high value target in the US and Israel.  Reports that a conventional bomb enhanced with nuclear material would be used.

With Iranian president Ahmandinejad and Secretary of State Clinton both scheduled to be in New York in the next 24 hours, and recent stories out of Israel trying to tie Iran to the Taliban, the issue of “timing” is a critical one.

ISREAL TIES TO PAKISTAN TALIBAN WELL ESTABLISHED

The group blamed in the Site Intelligence/Israeli report, the Pakistani Taliban has been responsible for hundreds of attacks in Pakistan, killing thousands of citizens.  However, reliable sources have tied this group directly to Mossad/RAW training camps inside Afghanistan and Balochistan.  The Pakistani Taliban have long been allies of Israel and India with 2000 terrorist trainers inside Afghanistan arming Pakistani Taliban terrorist group.

This has been confirmed, not only in direct briefings with the Pakistani ISPR and ISI but US military intelligence sources as well, who dispute then number of terrorist trainers, not their presence.

Terrorist groups inside Balochistan, the remote Pakistan province said to be a haven for Mossad attacks against Iran, claim to be headquartered in Israel.  These groups work directly with the Pakistan Taliban and are another indication of this current “stunt” turning back on non-Islamic planners.

ALWAYS THE SAME, “WHO GAINS?”

With Iran taking the propaganda offensive to the United States, a nation increasingly distancing itself from, not only the idea of supporting an Israeli attack on Iran, Israel is under pressure to reestablish itself as America’s partner in a long discredited “war on terror” that has been a huge embarrassment to the US.

With over 90% of America’s terror arrests turning out to be innocent bystanders, some tortured for years, untold numbers “disappeared,” Bush era failures have soured public support for hunting terrorist leaders who have increasingly been either captured by Pakistan or have been found to be negotiating with US forces.

With the signature of this bombing being so close to that of the “crotch bombing,” an attack with Israeli fingerprints from Nigeria to Yemen to Amsterdam, the “superfast” accusation against a Pakistani group was no surprise.

ONGOING INVESTIGATION/FOX “ISRAELI ASSET” NEWS ATTACKS OBAMA

With New York police discounting the Pakistan connection to the bombing immediately, Fox News has unleashed an attack on the Obama administration in a well orchestrated manner, accusing democrats of “failing to protect the American people.”

With both Site Intelligence and Fox News tied directly to Israel and the signature and timing of this attack showing clear Israeli fingerprints, Fox may be right.

America may be unable to protect itself from a nation still seen by most Americans as a close ally.  No other nation has the capability of such an attack or the influence to orchestrate the news, an act already in motion.

If any finger is pointing anywhere, Fox News is telling us “Israel did it.”

Cops: Video Has Possible SUV Bomb Suspect In Alley

Police: Despite Claim, No Evidence Of Taliban Link

The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility in a video posted on the Internet on Sunday, according to the SITE Intelligence Group. SITE, a U.S.-based terrorist tracking organization, first uncovered the video on YouTube; it later appeared to have been removed from the website.

In a copy of the video provided by SITE, an unidentified voice speaking in Urdu, the primary language in Pakistan, says the group takes “full responsibility for the recent attack in the USA.” The video does not mention any details about Saturday’s attack. Anyone  could have made the video.

I am glad for once the police are not falling for the Fake Video garbage provided by SITE. Their videos are bogus pieces of junk. They are intended to take the focus off who really does things.

Still no verdict in Dr Aafia Siddiqui trial

February 3 2010

On Tuesday, jurors in New York deliberated for a full day without reaching a verdict in the trial of Pakistani citizen Aafia Siddiqui, who is charged with attempted murder of FBI agents and US military personnel.

The deliberations are scheduled to resume on Wednesday.

Siddiqui is accused of grabbing a US warrant officer’s M-4 rifle in a police station in Ghazni, Afghanistan in July 2008 and firing two shots at FBI agents and military personnel when being interrogated for her alleged possession of documents detailing a ‘terrorist’ plan.

The prosecution says she burst from behind a curtain and attempted the ‘murder’ and was shot in the abdomen.

Last week, Siddiqui said she was concerned about being transferred to a “secret” prison by the US forces and was trying to slip out of the room when she was shot. “I’m telling you what I know. I walked toward the curtain. I was shot and I was shot again. I fainted,” she said.

Siddiqui’s lawyer Linda Moreno said during closing arguments Monday that the “science” supported her testimony that she didn’t touch the weapon or fire it.

“Where are the bullet holes? …Did the Afghanis take the bullet holes? …There is no physical evidence that an M-4 rifle was touched by Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, let alone fired,”The Wall Street Journal quoted Moreno as saying.

Siddiqui vanished in Karachi, Pakistan with her three children on March 30, 2003. The next day it was reported in local newspapers that she had been taken into custody on terrorism charges.

US officials allege that she was seized on July 17, 2008 by Afghan security forces in Ghazni province and claim that documents, including formulas for explosives and chemical weapons, were found in her handbag.

She has been brought to the United States to face charges of attempted murder and assault. Siddiqui faces 20 years in prison on the attempted murder charges and life in prison on the firearms charge.

However, human rights organizations have cast doubt on the accuracy of the US account of the event.

Many political activists believe she was Prisoner 650 of the US detention facility in Bagram, Afghanistan, where they say she was tortured for five years until one day US authorities announced that they had found her in Afghanistan.

Jeffry Picower died: Biggest beneficiary of Bernard Madoff’s fraud

October 25 2009

MIAMI

Palm Beach billionaire Jeffry Picower, described as the biggest beneficiary of Bernard Madoff’s fraud, died on Sunday after he was found lying at the bottom of the pool at his home, police said.

Emergency services were called to the oceanside mansion after Picower, 67, was pulled from the pool by his wife and a housekeeper and he was later pronounced dead, the Palm Beach Post reported quoting police and Fire Rescue officials.

Police were investigating the death as a drowning, the newspaper said. It reported he was not breathing when he was pulled from the pool and paramedics worked unsuccessfully for 20 minutes at the scene to try to revive him.

Picower and his wife, Barbara, were friends of Wall Street financier Madoff, who is serving a 150-year sentence after pleading guilty to running a $65 billion Ponzi scheme.

The trustee handling the Madoff fraud case, Irving Picard, said in court documents filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York late last month that Picower, newly listed as one of the 400 wealthiest Americans by Forbes magazine, was complicit in the fraud.

Part of Picard’s filing said: “Based upon the trustee’s investigation to date, Picower was the biggest beneficiary of Madoff’s scheme, having withdrawn either directly or through the entities he controlled more than $7.2 billion of other investors’ money.”

Picower was being sued for the $7.2 billion, $2 billion more than the trustee in the case demanded in May.

He was listed 371st and worth $1 billion on the latest published Forbes list.

Picower started out as an accountant and lawyer and then made money investing in the medical sector.

He and his wife headed a philanthropy, the Picower Foundation. The foundation closed when the Madoff fraud unraveled last December.

A spokeswoman for the Picowers’ attorney, William Zabel, has rejected Picard’s accusations against Picower as “false and outrageous claims … based on a misreading of the purported ‘facts’.”

She said the Picowers initiated discussions to reach a settlement with the trustee, who is winding down Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC.

Picard, who is leading a global search under the Securities Investor Protection Act to recover money for thousands of defrauded investors, has collected about $1.5 billion, but has sued for some $15 billion.

The case is Irving H. Picard, trustee for the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC v. Jeffry M. Picower 09-01197 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (Manhattan).

Butchers: The hidden truth about Israel’s kidney theft ring

Butchers: The hidden truth about Israel’s kidney theft ring


By Joseph Cannon
Cannonfire via Uruknet
Saturday, Aug 1, 2009

Editor’s Note: This report by Joseph Cannon includes his second follow-up report below. First the Zionists starve the Gazans with their blockade. Then they bomb the defenseless people inside the prison they’ve created for them. Then, with the complicity of the government of Israel, major “respected” U.S. hospitals and corrupt politicians, they sell the organs of some of the remaining Palestinians in their lucrative market in New York. What unconscionable behavior this is. What kind of beast is this. – LMB


38.aptopix_corruption_arrests_nyll109.jpg

July 31, 2009

(Note: This is a major story. Although I’ve done no original “in the field” research, I’ve stitched together published material in a way that reveals the true authorship of this crime. You won’t learn about the complicity of the Israeli government anywhere else.)

Where do the kidneys come from?

I’m talking about the kidneys offered by an “organist” named Izzy Rosenbaum. The FBI scooped him up in a corruption probe that focused on pay-offs to New Jersey pols (nothing surprising about that) and money laundering by prominent rabbis:

The probe also uncovered Levy Izhak Rosenbaum of Brooklyn, who is accused of conspiring to broker the sale of a human kidney for a transplant. According to the complaint, Rosenbaum said he had been brokering sale of kidneys for 10 years.

“His business was to entice vulnerable people to give up a kidney for $10,000 which he would turn around and sell for $160,000,” said Marra.

Marra is a US attorney involved with the case. News accounts like the one quoted above have led the public to believe that the “donors” were both willing and compensated, and that this operation was purely private. But good evidence indicates that the matter is far, far more troubling.

The kidneys were “donated” at gunpoint by unwilling victims.

The Israeli government directed Rosenbaum’s grisly scheme.

Major American hospitals wittingly participated in the plot.

Before we get to that evidence, let us confront two simple questions: Whose kidneys, exactly, were taken? And what kind of doctor would extract a kidney from a healthy patient?

“I am what you call a matchmaker,” the complaint quotes Rosenbaum as telling the undercover agent.

Had the transaction been real, federal authorities said, it would have been the most recent chapter in Rosenbaum’s 10-year career as an illicit middleman. In each case, he would take a blood sample from a prospective recipient and give it to an associate at an insurance company who could analyze it at a lab without arousing suspicion. The sample would then be shipped to Israel, and the necessary people paid off to find a match.

“He prayed on vulnerable people, ” said assistant US district attorney Mark McCarron.

Rosenbaum would then arrange the donor’s flight to New York, including obtaining a visa, authorities said. Once the donor arrived in the US, Rosenbaum would help fabricate a relationship between donor and recipient — a story both would repeat during interviews with medical professionals. The two might pretend to business associates, for instance, or close friends from a religious congregation.

“The hospitals seemed to be in the dark,” McCarron said.

As we shall see, we should take that last statement with a grain of salt roughly the size of Lot’s wife.

A close reading of the actual indictment of Rosenbaum (pdf) is troubling. Rosenbaum spilled his guts (so to speak) to an undercover informant posing as a prospective organ purchaser. During these interviews, an FBI agent posed as the purchaser’s secretary.

Let’s look at some excerpts from the indictment. “UC” refers to the informant, whose real name is Solomon Dwek.

The UC asked defendant ROSENBAUM how defendant ROSENBAUM could obtain a kidney on behalf of UC’s uncle, and defendant ROSENBAUM explained that defendant ROSENBAUM could send a blood sample from the UC’s uncle to Israel to find a matching prospective donor. Defendant ROSENBAUM added that “if you want to arrange it faster, then I, I bring the donor over here… The hospital is the authority who decide it’s a match or not. Not me, not you, not him, not nobody.”

Defendant ROSENBAUM then explained that it would be necessary to fabricate some sort of relationship between the donor and the recipient. Defendant ROSENBAUM stated that “we put together something–-the relationship. The hospital is asking what’s the relationship between” the donor and the recipient. Defendant ROSENBAUM continued, “So we put in a relationship, friends, or neighbor, or business relations, any relation.”

Defendant ROSENBAUM explained that he was not a surgeon and that once he had brought a willing donor to this country, “it’s beyond my control.” He did add that “I take care of [the donor] after, after the surgery also.” When pressed on this last point, defendant ROSENBAUM explained that “I place him somewhere,” to look after the donor. Defendant ROSENBAUM further stated: “You have to babysit him like a baby because he may have a language problem, maybe not.” Defendant ROSENBAUM explained the process of finding a donor in Israel and stated that “[t]here are people over there hurting . . . One of the reasons it’s so expensive is because you have to shmear (meaning pay various individuals for their assistance) all the time.”

11. Defendant ROSENBAUM indicated that among those who would need to be paid were the donor and the doctors in Israel who would examine the donor, and further added that there would be expenses incurred for preparing the Visa work and paying the donor’s expenses while in the United States.

The only evidence that the donor would be willing came from Rosenbaum, who had the following motives for lying:

1. He needed to ease the conscience of the prospective recipient.

2. He needed to justify the large amount of cash involved.

3. He needed to protect the hospitals and doctors involved with his operation. Rosenbaum understood that he was engaged in a risky business, and that even if he got caught, he would still need to provide cover for any hospital or surgeon connected to this wretched business.

Do we have evidence of that the donors were coerced? Yes. In fact, we have the testimony of an “insider” witness:

Nancy Scheper-Hughes of the University of California, Berkeley, was and is very clear as to Rosenbaum’s role in the ring.

“He is the main U.S. broker for an international trafficking network,” she said.

Her sources include a man who started working with Rosenbaum imagining he was helping people in desperate need. The man then began to see the donors, or to be more accurate, sellers, who were flown in from impoverished countries such as Moldova.

“He said it was awful. These people would be brought in and they didn’t even know what they were supposed to be doing and they would want to go home and they would cry,” Scheper-Hughes said.

The man called Rosenbaum “a thug” who would pull out a pistol he was apparently licensed to carry and tell the sellers, “You’re here. A deal is a deal. Now, you’ll give us a kidney or you’ll never go home.’

(Moldava, incidentally, is a small country bordering the Ukraine.)

Scheper-Hughes, who is writing a book on this topic, went to the FBI in 2002. They dismissed her evidence. The State Department issued a 2004 report which labeled organ trafficking an “urban legend.” By contrast, authorities in other countries acted on her leads and made arrests.

Scheper-Hughes had better luck in Brazil and in South Africa, where law enforcement corroborated her findings and acted decisively.

But the ring kept operating elsewhere. Scheper-Hughes visited villages in Moldova where, “20% of the men were siphoned off to be kidney sellers in this same scheme.”

We must now pause to re-think Rosenbaum’s statements to the FBI informant. How could any rational person working for a hospital buy the story that the recipients — American Jews — attended services with Brazilians and Africans?

You can see a lecture by the heroic Nancy Scheper-Hughes here. The video also gives her resume, which is extremely impressive. Her testimony to a House subcommittee is here.

NPR’s Brian Lehrer interviewed Scheper-Hughes yesterday morning. An excerpt:

I had begun to unravel a huge network — a criminal network that really looks like, smells like, kind of a mafia. The head office of the pyramid scheme originated in Israel, with brokers placed in Turkey; in New York City; in Philadelphia; in Durban; in Johannesburg; in Recife, Brazil; Moldova — all over the place. And I used my ethnographic investigative skills to just go country-hopping and try to connect the dots.

Eventually, it brought me to Isaac Rosenbaum being the head broker for Ilan Peri in Israel, who is the don, basically, of the operation, and who is a slippery guy. The Israelis tried to nail him and arrest him. They tried to get him on tax evasion and he escaped to Germany. I think he’s back in Israel.

A cynic might posit that Mr. Peri has what Mossad calls “a horse” pulling for him. (A “horse” is an Israeli slang term for a big shot offering covert aid.) Although he has left a very scant public trail, Mr. Peri and his operation are mentioned in this 2004 story.

This fascinating article from Agence-France Presse offers blockbuster information. A retired Israeli army officer named Geldaya Tauber Gady was arrested in Brazil for his participation in this international organ trafficking ring. (I suspect that the information from Scheper-Hughes — which was taken seriously in Brazil — led to Gady’s arrest.)

He told the court that the Israeli government financed the operation. Not only that:

Gady told the court that an Israeli government official, identified only as Ilan, put him in touch with an intermediary in Brazil…

Gady’s courtroom testimony puts the Rosenbaum case in an entirely new light.

The American media’s coverage has led the public to believe that Rosenbaum’s kidney trafficking was purely a matter of private enrichment. But a former Israeli officer has said under oath that the Israeli government runs this ring, and that the master of the ring — “Ilan” is obviously Ilan Peri — functions as an agent of that government.

(Now I’m wondering: Was the Israeli government involved with the money laundering conducted through New Jersey synagogues?)

Frankly, I suspect that Scheper-Hughes knows all about Gady’s testimony and its implications for the Rosenbaum case. She probably has chosen to keep mum about it in order not to lose credibility with the American media.

The Lehrer interview with Scheper-Hughes goes on to deliver more details about her findings in Moldova. In villages there, many young men reported that they had been told that they expect to find work in other countries (including the United States) as house painters. Once in the new country, they were forced to give up their kidneys.

According to Scheper-Hughes’ informant within Rosenbaum’s organization, confused and disoriented Russians would be flown into New York City by Israeli brokers who forced them at gunpoint to “donate” kidneys.

Scheper-Hughes: They told me the names of the hospitals, and they were our best hospitals!

Brian Lehrer: And did they know, professor, that they were performing kidney surgery on people who were unwilling participants and were being exploited and threatened?

Scheper-Hughes: My sense is, how could some of them not have known? The people that arrived, some of them didn’t speak the same languages, they were poor, they were disoriented…

We have rules. We have transplant coordinating committees. We have ethical guidelines. And you don’t just let people walk in off the streets.

She goes on to name Mount Sinai hospital, against whom she has videotaped evidence. She brought the videotape to the attention of 60 Minutes, which did not broadcast it. Later in the interview, she refers to operations done at Albert Einstein Medical Center. Mount Sinai says that its kidney donors “undergo an extensive evaluation to provide for their safety and well-being.”

Over the years, many have accused Israel of trafficking in the organs of Palestinians. The Palestinians themselves have no doubt that the practice is common.

Unfortunately, many of the websites trumpeting charges of Israeli organ theft often display an undeniable anti-Semitic bent. Some of the allegations I’ve looked into do indeed appear to be spurious. (I would, for example, dismiss any claim that traces back to so notorious a source as La Voz de Atlan.) But before you categorize all such accusations as fantasies, consider: As recently as 2004, the State Department officially denounced as mythical the claim that organ trafficking occurs in the United States. As we now know, that “myth” had a basis in reality.

Knee-jerk accusations of anti-Semitism should not deter us from conducting candid and unbiased research into Israel’s record. I would note that those who discuss organ trafficking in India and China are not accused of racial animosity toward the Indians or the Chinese.

This online book
is written to a high standard and cites responsible sources, including Scheper-Hughes. The endnotes attribute the following story to the respected author David Yallop:

West Bank, 8th of February 1988

Nineteen years old Khader Elias Tarazi, a Christian Palestinian, went shopping for groceries in the Gaza. Upon returning with two bags on his bicycle he crossed a road near a demonstration where stone throwers were fleeing Israeli Army soldiers. The soldiers grabbed Khader and beat his head and body with truncheons. Shopkeepers shouted that Khader wasn’t involved but soldiers broke one of Khader’s arms and a leg. They continued the beating then threw him onto the bonnet of their jeep handcuffing the now unconscious Khader to the front crash bar. They drove off continually braking hard whereupon he sustained further injuries including a broken back, skull injuries and his face kept banging against the bonnet.

The Israeli doctor at the Military Prison in Gaza refused to attend Khader because of his serious injuries and inadequate paperwork. He was taken to Ansar Two prison and thrown into a prisoner tent holding thirty to forty prisoners. The other Palestinian prisoners screamed that he must be taken to hospital and the guards responded by forcing them to strip naked and stand outside in the winter cold. Khader died in the tent and later was taken to Soroka Hospital in Beer Sheva and pronounced dead.

Khader’s mother was outside the prison where Israeli officials denied they had a prisoner by his name inside. Later, they admitted he was inside but said he must have been very sick when he went out shopping because he was now dead.

Israeli officials refused to hand over the body and it was transferred to Abu Kabeer hospital, officially for a post-mortem. Mrs Tarazi told David Yallop that during this time many of his organs were illegally removed from his body.

No inquiry was made into the death and the Tarazi family were told if they continued to ask for an inquiry they would be looking for trouble. Five months later soldiers and secret police visited the Tarazi house at midnight, beat up Khader’s brother and father and threw the former into Ansar Three prison.

Yallop is also the source for the following:

West Bank, 30th of October, 1988

When Roman Catholic Palestinians were leaving mass they were confronted by the Israeli Army and began throwing stones. Nineteen-year old Iyad Bishara Abu Saada was killed by a plastic bullet that cut an abdominal artery. The same grim chase for the body entailed. The mourners eluded the Israelis and Iyad was buried a few hours later. Somewhat predictably the Israelis fired teargas canisters into the family home four days later. Mrs Saada told David Yallop the practice of removing organs was common and named Arab and Israeli hospitals where she said organs were removed. She said doctors, accompanied by soldiers, offered large amounts of money to parents of the killed.

Mary Barrett, identified as a Boston-based photo-journalist (I know nothing else about her) wrote this piece in 1990.

Dr. Abu Ghazalch attributes the widespread anxiety over organ thefts which has gripped Gaza and the West Bank since the intifada began in December of 1987 to several factors. “There are indications that for one reason or another, organs. especially eyes and kidneys, were removed from the bodies during the first year or year and a half’. There were just too many reports by credible people for there to he nothing happening. If someone is shot in the head and comes home in a plastic bag without internal organs, what will people assume’?

The doctor went on to state that there were “fewer incidents which point in that direction” as of 1990. Incidentally, the story mentions Dr. Yehuda Hiss, more recently accused of harvesting organs from fallen Israeli soldiers without permission.

According to a story which was published in Ha’aretz (a source not open to charges of anti-Semitism), Romanian authorities have accused an Israeli adoption agency of being part of a global organ theft conspiracy.

The Romanian Embassy in Israel has asked for, and received from the Labor and Social Affairs Ministry, a list of all children born in Romania who have been brought to Israel for adoption in recent years. The Romanian officials are trying to ascertain if all such children arrived in Israel with all organs in their bodies.

Let’s close with a tale about a willing Palestinian organ donation.

In 2005, in the town of Jenin, the Israeli Defense Forces shot and killed a Palestinian child named Ahmed Khatib. His grieving father allowed the child’s various organs to be used to save the lives of other children, both Jewish and Arab. A generous and humane offer. Nevertheless, the father of a Jewish girl whose life was saved said that he would never allow his daughter to befriend an Arab — for fear of “bad influence.”

(I hope my readers will help draw attention to this story. Normally I do not ask others to link to one of my articles, but in this case I must.)

Writing this story does not make me feel comfortable. Nevertheless, I must offer a follow-up to my previous post about the FBI’s corruption probe in New Jersey, which netted both corrupt politicians and rabbis who used religious charities as fronts for money laundering.

The most troubling aspect of that story involves the illegal trade in human organs. Using responsible sources, my post demonstrated that this organ ring involved unwilling donors, major hospitals, and the Israeli government itself. Alas, no-one has followed up on the leads I have provided.

The key figure in the probe was an FBI informant named Solomon Dweck, the son of a prominent rabbi in Deal, New Jersey. Charged with trying to pass $50 millionin bad checks (!!!), Dweck cooperated the FBI in order to obtain leniency.

Dweck’s criminality — and the even worse criminality of the figures he helped bring to justice — should not reflect upon the larger Orthodox Jewish community in New Jersey. But the reaction of that community is troubling.

Troubling and, to be frank, disgusting.

The Orthodox news organ VIN had offered an incorrect story, based on Israeli sources, that Rabbi Isaac Dweck had announced in public that he was sitting shiva for his son Solomon. (“Sitting shiva” means treating his son as if he were dead.) The rabbi denounced his son not because of the $50 million bank fraud, but because Solomon had informed on other Jews.

A later, corrected account revealed that the rabbi did not sit shiva. Nevertheless…

Rabbi Dweck delivered a very emotional sermon in which he strongly denounced the phenomenon of a Jew informing on other Jews, said that he is also a victim in this saga together with Klal Yisroel, and asked for prayers from the entire Jewish community for his terrible suffering.

Again: Solomon tried to pass $50 million in bad checks. Yet this rabbi — a religious leader! — offered not a syllable of sorrow about that crime. Instead, he denounced his own son for doing the right thing — helping to bring money launderers and organ thieves to justice.

The responses from VIN readers are even more disturbing:

Whatever the halacha is, what he did is disgraceful.

he should sit shivah

one should sit shiva for such a son; his son deserves death, so its as if he died

why wouldn’t the father sit shivah? don’t his son’s action prompt him to cut off ties with him? would his father ever look at him again?

Trust me rabbi dweck knows how disgracefull it is to go after rabbi kassin and trying to get rabbi d yosef too. Does anyone have a clue to how painfull it is to denounce a son in public?

the fact is, the rabbanim were entrapped by shlomo dwek.

dwek, on the other hand, was in trouble. instead of doing his time like a mentsch for the INSANE acts he is known to have committed (keep in mind 3 years have passed since), as his business partner sat the past 3 years and has recently completed his sentence and began a fresh slate with his family and a new job, NO – mr. dwek instead decided to be a moser – a crime for which the chofetz chaim states there is NO kapara – unlike chillul hashem, for which death atones, a moser will continue to burn even after the fuel in gehenom runs out!

“Moser” means “snitch.” “Kapara” means forgiveness. “Chillul hashem” means any act which profanes God’s name.

Moiser is worse, and especially the way he did it with entrapment and bait. this piece if dirt.

FBI and this lowlife,shame on you.That is the real chillul hashem.If Rosenbaum is such a bad guy,organ seller and all,why do they have zero real cases on him.The FBI has been following him for awhile and all they have is one case where he alledgedly conspired to do the act.

He should sit shiva his son is a moser and lost his cheluk to Olam Haba.

how did the press get pictures of the arrest if the FBI didnt turn it into a media circus/setup

I should quickly point out that some VIN readers reacted much more responsibly, denouncing the corruption at the heart of this scandal. Still, it is troubling to see so many members of this community speak as though Dweck’s true crime was ratting out other Jews.

This denunciation of informants might be understandable if we were dealing with members of the IRA during the days of British rule. Does the Jewish community of New Jersey really feel that the United States government is an alien, occupying force?

The FBI acted well within its mandate. Indeed, the feds deserve to be castigated only for not acting earlier on the leads provided by Nancy Scheper-Hughes, whose investigations into the illegal organ trade have lead to arrests and convictions in other countries.

Why does the spectacle of rabbis arrested on charges of criminal conspiracy evince so few expressions of shock and shame from this community? Why aren’t these people disgusted by Isaac Rosenbaum, who (according to Scheper-Hughes) forced organ donations at gunpoint? Why denounce the moser and not the monsters?

Letting AP in on the Secret: Israeli Strip Searches are Torture

European Diplomats thought they had a problem at the border? They only got a couple of warning shots. They should have had to go through this like others had too. Then they would really  have something to whine about.

Seems they got off rather easy.

They should take a look at what was done to this young photojournalist. and others. Things that never made it to the mainstream media.

Letting AP in on the Secret:
Israeli Strip Searches

By Alison Weir

July 29, 2008

On June 26th a young Palestinian photojournalist named Mohammed Omer was returning home from a triumphant European tour.

In London he had been awarded the 2008 Martha Gellhorn Prize for journalism – the youngest recipient ever and one of the few non-Britons ever to receive the prestigious prize.

In Greece he had been given the 2008 journalism award for courage by the Union of Greek Journalists and had been invited to speak before the Greek parliament.

In Britain, the Netherlands, Greece, and Sweden he had met with Parliament Members and been interviewed on major radio and TV stations.

In the US several years before, he had been named the first recipient of the New America Media’s Best Youth Voice award.

In an Israeli border facility he was violently strip-searched at gunpoint, forced to do a grotesque sort of dance while completely naked, assaulted, taunted about his awards and his ethnicity, and finally, when Israeli officials feared he might have been fatally injured, taken by ambulance to a Palestinian hospital; if he died, it would not be while in Israeli custody.

As readers may have already guessed, Israel was not part of Omer’s speaking tour.

AP, in its over 60 reports from the region in the following week never mentioned any of this.

The reason Omer was even in ‘Israel’ (actually, an “immigration terminal” controlled by Israel on occupied Palestinian land in the West Bank) is a simple one: He was simply trying to go from Jordan to his home in the Gaza Strip. Gaza is basically a large concentration camp to which Israel holds the keys. It is extremely difficult for Palestinians to get out. It is just as difficult to get back in.

Despite Omer’s journalism credentials (Gaza correspondent for the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs and IPS, stringer for AFP, occasionally appears on BBC, etc.) and despite being invited to receive an international award, Omer was only able to exit Gaza through the considerable efforts of Dutch diplomats.

When the 24-year-old journalist tried to return to Gaza, it again required intercession by the Dutch Embassy. After being forced by Israel to wait in Jordan for five days (and therefore missing his brother’s wedding), Omer finally received word that he would be allowed to go home.

However, when he arrived at the Israeli immigration terminal, an Israel official told him that there was no entry permit for him in the computer and he was told to wait. Three hours later an official came out and took Omer’s cell phone away from him. While Omer’s Dutch Embassy escort waited outside, unaware of what was going on, Omer’s ordeal began.

“He then asked me to leave my belongings and follow him. I recognized we were entering the Shin Bet [Israeli internal security service] offices at Allenby. Upon entering, he motioned for me to sit in a chair within a closed corridor…

“After what seemed to be one hour and thirty minutes, both doors at the end of the corridor opened. I watched as one of the Palestinian passengers exited securing his belt to his trousers. A second man followed behind and was struggling to put on his T-shirt. Immediately I realized I was not in a good place. The rooms from which they exited must be used for strip searching…

A uniformed intelligence officer and two others began rifling through all of Omer’s possessions.

“They were looking for something specific but I wouldn’t know what until green eyes demanded, ‘Where is the money, Mohammed?’

“What money I thought. Of course I had money on me. I was traveling… For a moment I was relieved, thinking this was just a typical shakedown. I’d lose the cash with me, but that would be about it…

“However, my traveling money failed to suffice. Dissatisfied, he pressed, ‘Where is the money from the prize?’

“I realized he was after the award stipend for the Martha Gellhorn Prize from the UK and I told him I did not have it with me. I’d arranged for a bank transfer rather than carry it with me. Visibly irritated the intelligence agent continued to press for money.

“The room filled with more intelligence officers, bringing the total Israeli personnel, most well armed, in the room to eight: eight Israelis and me…

“Dissatisfied that larger sums of money failed to materialize, green eyes accused me of lying. I again repeated the prize money went to bank draft and I already had shown him all the cash I had on me. Avi interjected, ordering me to empty my pockets, which I already had. Seeing they had tapped out, he escorted me into another room, this one empty.

“’OK take off your clothes’ Avi the intelligence officer ordered.

“I asked why. A simple pat-down would have disclosed any money belts or weapons; besides, I had already gone through an x-ray machine before entering the passport holding area.

“He repeated the order.

“Removing all but my underwear, I stood before Avi. In an increasingly belligerent tone he ordered, ‘take off everything’.

“’I am not taking off my underwear,’ I stated. Again he ordered me to remove my underwear.

“At this point I informed him that an escort from the Dutch embassy was currently waiting for me on the other side of the interrogation center and that I was under diplomatic transit.

“He replied he knew that, thus indicating he didn’t care, and again insisted I strip. Again I refused. There was no reason for me to do so.

Omer asked:  ‘Why are you treating me this way? I am human being.’

“For a moment I flashed on the scene in the Oscar winning film, The Pianist where the Jewish man, being humiliated by a Nazi quoted Shakespeare, invoking his faith in place of written words, ‘Doth a Jew not have eyes?’ the old man queried, attempting to appeal to the humanity buried somewhere in the soul of his oppressor. Finding myself confronting the same racism and disdain I wanted to ask Avi, ‘Doth a Palestinian not have eyes?’

Would his indoctrination inoculate him from empathy as well? Likely, I reasoned, it would.

“Avi smirked, half chuckling as he informed me, ‘This is nothing compared to what you will see now.’

“With that the intelligence officer unholstered his weapon, pressing it to my head and with his full body weight pinning me on my side, he forcibly removed my underwear. Completely naked, I stood before him as he proceeded to feel me up one side and down the other…

“Avi then proceeded to demand I do a concocted sort of dance, ordering me to move to the right and the side. When I refused, he forced me under his own power to move side to side…”

After awhile Omer was allowed to put his clothes back on, but the interrogation continued. His eight, mostly armed interrogators taunted him over his awards, his appearance on BBC, and the misery he was returning to in what they termed “dirty” Gaza. Finally, after hours in Israeli custody and a total of 12 hours without food or water, Omer collapsed.

“….without warning I began to vomit all over the room. At the same time I felt my legs buckled from the strain of standing and I passed out… I awoke on the floor to someone screaming, repeating my name over and over…

“As he screamed in my ears I felt his fingernails puncturing my skin, gouging, scraping and clawing at the tender flesh beneath my eyes. This was the intelligence officer’s method for gauging my level of consciousness. No smelling salts as is the civilized manner for reviving a person. Clawing at my eyes and tearing the skin on my face proved his manner of rendering aid.

“Realizing I was again conscious, though barely, the Israeli broadened his assault, scooping my head and digging his nails in near the auditory nerves between my head and ear drum. Rather then render first aid, which is the protocol and international law in instances whether prisoners of war or civilians, the soldier broadened his assault. The pain became sharper as he dug his nails, two fingers at a time into my neck, grazing my carotid artery and again challenging my consciousness before pummeling my chest with his full weight and strength.

“I estimate I lay on the floor approximately one hour and twenty minutes and I continued to vomit for what seemed like a half hour. Severely dehydrated, focusing took flight and the room became a menagerie of pain, sound and terror. The stench further exasperated and seemed to inflame my captors further…

“All around me I heard Israeli voices and then one placed his combat boot on my neck pressing into the hard floor. I remember choking, feeling the outline of his shoe and in my increasing delirium thought for a moment perhaps someone was rendering aid. Reality destroyed that hope. Around me, like men watching a sporting match I heard laughing and goading, a gang rape of verbal and physical violence meted by men entrenched in hatred and rage… I again lost consciousness and awoke to find myself being dragged by my feet on my back through my vomit on the floor, my head bouncing on the pavement and body sweeping to-and-fro like a mop…

Eventually, Omer was transferred to a Palestinian hospital, but only after Israeli officials tried to force him to sign a paper absolving them from responsibility.

“In other words, if I died or was permanently disabled as a result of Israel’s actions, Israel could not be held accountable. One would think I was in a third world dictatorship rather than the ‘only democracy in the Middle East’. One would think.”

Where is AP?

One would also think that such treatment of a journalist by America’s “special ally” would be news.

Since journalists tend to be particularly concerned when fellow journalists are victimized, it would be expected that Omer’s abuse would receive considerable press attention – especially since he had just received international recognition from the journalism community. One can only imagine the multitude of headlines that would result if an Israeli journalist, perhaps even one who had not just been feted internationally, had been similarly treated by the Palestinian Authority.

Oddly, however, despite the fact that Reuters, BBC, the UK Guardian, Israel’s Ha’aretz newspaper, and others issued news reports, the Associated Press, which serves virtually every daily newspaper in the U.S., sent out nothing on it.

Astounded, I finally phoned AP headquarters in New York to find out how they had missed it.

I asked for the international desk, told them I had a news tip, and briefly described the incident. I was told, “Oh yes, we know about it.”

I asked them when they were going to report it and was told: “The Jerusalem bureau is looking into it.” The Jerusalem bureau is located in Israel; many of its editors and their wives/husbands/children have Israeli citizenship. It is not the most unbiased of bureaus. Yet, it is the control bureau for the region – the filter through which virtually all AP reports, photos, video footage from Palestine and Israel must pass.

A day or two later there was still no story. I phoned the international desk in New York again and was told that the Jerusalem bureau had decided not to cover the incident. There was no explanation.

I tried phoning higher-ups, including CEO Tom Curley, who goes about the country lecturing about the “public’s right to know” and Kathleen Carroll, Executive Editor, to learn on what basis AP had determined this incident was not newsworthy. Neither returned my call. I kept trying, hoping to find somewhere in the AP hierarchy at least a semblance of a journalist committed to AP’s alleged mission of reporting the news “accurately and honestly.”

Finally, I found one. I reached the managing editor in charge of international reporting, and asked him why AP was refusing to cover the case of a prize-winning journalist being strip-searched at gunpoint and physically abused by Israeli officials when he returned to Gaza from receiving the Martha Gellhorn award in London.

The editor admitted that he hadn’t heard of the incident and was interested in the details. I told him what I knew, referred him to the UK Guardian article and others, and he said he’d look into it.

As a result, two weeks after Omer’s ordeal, and after Israel had solidified its denial narrative, AP finally sent out a report.

The belated story, datelined Jerusalem and carrying a byline by Karin Laub, left a great deal to be desired.

It depicted the incident as a “he said/she said” dispute, in which it termed Omer’s statements as “claims,” while never using this verb for Israeli statements. In every case Israeli statements are placed in the rebuttal position.

The lengthy article places Omer’s strongest descriptions in the second half of the story, where they would typically be cut by the averaged-sized print newspaper, and leaves out a great deal of important information.

For example, while AP reports that Omer was discharged from one hospital, it neglects to report that Omer was admitted to a second one where he was hospitalized for four or five days. It does not name the Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, neglects any mention of other awards, and omits entirely Omer’s meetings with Parliament Members in multiple countries. It fails to report the statement by the former ambassador from The Netherlands:

“This is by no means an isolated incident, but part of a long-term strategy to demolish Palestinian social, economic and cultural life … I am aware of the possibility that Mohammed Omer might be murdered by Israeli snipers or bomb attack in the near future.”

The international organization Reporters Without Borders reported issued a condemnation of the attack, stating that in the ten days preceding Omer’s incident alone, it had recorded five incidents of “wrongful arrest” of journalists by Israel, and that one journalist was still being held. None of this was in Laub’s article.

All of the missing material, of course, would serve to add credibility to Omer’s statements. Perhaps this pattern of omission was a coincidence.

Early in the story, while admitting that Palestinians complain about “rough” treatment at the border (a considerable understatement), Laub seems to go out of her way to discredit Omer’s description of being forcibly strip-searched, by writing: “However, Omer’s allegation of being forced to strip naked appeared unusual.”

The Strip-Searching “Secret”

This is a bizarre statement.

As Dion Nissenbaum, Jerusalem bureau chief for McClatchy Newspapers,  wrote last year, “While Israeli security won’t admit it, it is a widely accepted secret that Palestinians and Arabs…are routinely subjected to intense, hours-long questioning that can include strip searches.”

Is it possible that AP is not in on this secret?

The reality is that frequent, random humiliation by Israeli soldiers and officials is part of the Palestinian experience. Numerous degrading strip searches – some of them particularly grotesque – have been forced on Palestinian men, women, and children of all ages for decades.

In addition, Israeli officials periodically strip search others whenever, it appears, they wish, including:
The British Consul General  (Israeli media reported that her search was “prolonged, needless and humiliating” and that she was “visibly upset)

An American holocaust survivor (she was treated to a “cavity search”)

Sixteen Christian evangelicals rounded up at gunpoint;

Journalists from around the world (an Argentinian journalist wrote: “… they made me go to another office and strip naked. An official came in stands next to me, while I’m naked, with a machine gun in his hand…” A Swiss reporter was forced to remove her pants in public and stand in her underwear, hands raised, in front of an x-ray machine);

A wheel-chair bound New Jersey woman with cerebral palsy whose sanitary pad was confiscated, humiliating her publicly;

An American doctoral student, who was also subjected to a cavity search…  and the list goes on and on.

Yet, somehow, AP missed all of these. In fact, amazingly, a LexisNexis search of Associated Press stories over the past 10 years, using the search terms “Israel” and “strip search,” turns up only one result – a few stories on a hunger strike by Palestinian prisoners protesting against, among other things, their daily strip searches by Israeli guards.

Since we think it’s unfair for AP to be excluded from what others in the region know, we compiled a very partial list of reports about Israeli strip-searches, with excerpts from each, and emailed AP the 25-page document. We asked for a correction and received the following response: “This acknowledges receipt of your e-mail. We have no further comment at this time.” Our request for an interview was “respectfully declined.”

Following are just a few of the stories on this topic that AP never reported to the thousands of newspapers, radio and television stations that rely on it for their foreign news.  The entire document is available on the If Americans Knew website.

* In 2007 the Palestinian Minister of Women’s Affairs issued a statement protesting the policy of Israeli soldiers taking Palestinian women “to separate rooms in the checkpoint and being forced to remove all clothes, to become fully naked.” The minister demanded that the UN and the international community provide security for Palestinian women.

* Even the New York Times (which justified it) reported about the Allenby border in 1987: “Before any visitor gets in, however, he must go through a stringent security check at the Israeli terminal. Besides being examined by metal detectors, each visitor must undergo a private strip search…”

* A University of Utah law student describes a PhD student conducting research in the region who was detained at the border crossing for six hours, “Then a female guard conducted a strip/cavity search while two male guards observed.”

* A British researcher reports: “While men have also reported forms of sexual torture in jail, women prisoners are particularly vulnerable to this as a form of humiliation by their captors. Women are forced to strip naked in front of guards, many of whom are male, and subjected to brutal body searches. Many women prisoners have detailed sexual assault by Israeli military and prison staff. On some occasions women are detained as a way of threatening or putting pressure on a male member of the family.

* A woman trying to reach a hospital reports: “…the labour pains grew stronger. I saw a lot of soldiers in front of me. I called out at them using the word “baby” which I think some understood. They started to talk to me in Hebrew as they pointed the guns towards me. They used signs and gestures. I understood that they wanted me to show them how pregnant I was which I did. One soldier asked me to take off my robe, which I did. But it was not sufficient and he asked me to remove the T-shirt and the trousers. I had no choice and I was ready to go as far as that in order to get to the hospital before it was late. He asked me to take off my underwear which I did. After this humiliation, they fetched a stretcher from one of the tanks. I was naked. I was carried to a tank and was given intravenous glucose into my arm. A few minutes later, they brought my father-in-law inside the tank. They drove for almost half an hour. I was thinking they were taking me to a nearby hospital but it turns out they were taking us back to the Huwwara checkpoint. We were taken out of the tank and were laid nude on the stretchers for almost one hour…”

* Reuters reported: “Three Israeli soldiers forced a Palestinian man to strip naked at gunpoint and walk like a dog in a West Bank city under curfew…A Reuters photographer snapped Yasser Sharaf, 25, standing naked in a cold, muddy street in Nablus on Sunday as two men were handing him clothes to put on and two Israeli armoured vehicles were pulling away from the scene.”

* Reporters who entered Nablus after the Israeli invasion of 2002 quoted from an interview with one of the inhabitants: “The men were then driven to a nearby yard, ordered to strip naked, and made to lie face down in the dirt. While my neighbor Jamal Sabar was taking off his pants, they shot him dead…”

*  “A soldier inside the jeep ordered me to raise my hands and get out of the car and said, ‘take off your shirt.’ I did; then he said, ‘and the pants.’ I did; then he said, ‘the undershirt and underwear.’ I begged him not to force me; and he said, ‘I’ll shoot you.’ And all the soldiers pointed their guns at me. I took off my underclothes and stood naked in front of everybody. He ordered, ‘proceed with your hands up.’ I came up to him and he gave me a transparent plastic bag to cover myself. He blindfolded me and made me sit 20 meters away. Then the soldier shouted at a passenger called Islam ‘Abed al-Sheikh Ibrahim, 18, who was sitting in the front seat, and ordered him to get out of the car. He told the soldier that his leg was broken, but the soldier insisted. He Islam got out and stood on his crutches. The soldier ordered him to take off his clothes. He tried by failed. The soldier came to me and removed the binding off my eyes and told me at gunpoint to go and help him take off his clothes. I went and helped the passenger take off all his clothes. The soldier told me to help him walk to the soldier. We walked up and he gave me another nylon bag for Islam. Then, he told us to sit on the ground. Soon after, the soldier ordered another passenger, Yasser Rasheed al-Sheikh Ibrahim,60, to get out of the car and take off his clothes like us…”

* The Guardian described an incident in which a commander was “awaiting a court martial on several charges, including ordering the boy to strip naked, holding a burning paper under his testicles, threatening to ram a bottle into his anus and threatening to shoot him…”

* “We were mostly older people, sick and wounded. We had nine handicapped people with us, three were from the same family, sons of Abu Ibrahim. Some of us were too old, they were senile. When they told them ‘go left’ they would go right, but they stripped them naked anyway. I tried to help them as much as I could. I was the only one who spoke Hebrew…Close to us was a group of young men. They were handcuffed, naked and lying on their stomachs. The Israeli tanks would pass by them so fast, only forty centimeters away from their heads.”

*  “Other residents described how young men were stripped naked and then shot. Yusuf Shalabi, a young man from the camp explained how the Israeli soldiers denied medical treatment to the wounded, ‘…I remember this nightmare very well. It is very difficult to talk about it. I remember them stripping the people naked, they would handcuff them and blindfold them. I remember seeing two wounded men, one was wounded in the shoulder and the other in the leg. They were screaming in pain and the soldiers would not allow them to be treated.’”

Incredibly, AP seems to have missed all of these, and more. As a result, Americans have little idea of the life is like for Paleestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.

Moreover, strip searches are just the tip of the iceberg. According to an Israeli government report released in 2000 (five years after it had been written) Shin Bet “used systematic torture against Palestinians and regularly lied about it.” An Israeli human rights organization estimated that 85 percent of Palestinian detainees had been subjected to torture.  In 2002 Foreign Service Journal carried a major expose on Israel torturing American citizens.  AP missed this Foreign Service Journal expose – as did, therefore, every newspaper in the country.

AP’s Ownership

AP is a cooperative. That means that every single newspaper, radio station, and television station that uses AP news stories is an owner of AP. This includes Democracy Now, which apart from a report on Mohammed Omer also seems to have covered this subject minimally, if at all.

It is time for all these news media, and for their readers, listeners, and viewers, to demand that AP provide the full story.

Americans have long given Israel, the size of New Jersey, far more of our tax money than to any other nation on earth. It is time to end the cover up. Americans need to know how Israel is using our money.

Alison Weir is executive director of If Americans Knew (which found in a statistical study that in 2004 AP had covered Israeli children’s deaths at rates 7 times greater than they had reported Palestinian deaths). The full document listing Israeli strip searches can be viewed at http://www.ifamericansknew.org/cur_sit/strip-searches.htmlDVDs containing a short video about Israeli strip searching of women and children are available for readers wishing to educate their local media and community on the information that AP is choosing not to report. The Washington Report has created a petition on the incident for people to sign.

Hundreds march in Seattle to protest Israeli attacks on Gaza
By BRAD WONG
January 3 2009

Chanting “Free, free Palestine,” hundreds of people gathered in Seattle on Saturday to oppose the recent violence in the Middle East, mirroring protests worldwide that have drawn thousands as Israel has faced increasing criticism for its attacks on the Gaza Strip.

In Seattle, more than 500 people waved yellow-and-black placards and beat drums at Westlake Center to draw attention to the more than 400 Palestinians who have died from Israeli airstrikes on Gaza.

“We believe that even if a part of your body is injured, your whole body will ache from it,” said Maha Shabaneh, who has relatives in her homeland of Palestine.

Shabaneh, a 43-year-old who lives in Seattle, wants people in the United States to be more aware of the conflict in the Middle East and for President-elect Barack Obama to be bold in dealing with it.

“He won’t be successful until he tackles foreign issues,” she said. “He needs to stand on these issues and prove that he is different.”

In the crowd, Wendy Somerson, 40, a Jewish woman from Seattle, clutched a sign that read, “The State of Israel Betrays Jewish Values.”

“We don’t support collective punishment of the Palestinian people. All people are equal and all lives are equal,” said Somerson, a member of Jewish Voice for Peace.

“The 400 Palestinian lives. We’re mourning them just as we’re mourning the four Israeli lives,” she added, referring to those who have died recently.

Voices of Palestine and other groups, including The Church Council of Greater Seattle and Jewish Voice for Peace, organized the rally.

The protest drew a cross section of area residents, including Buddhists, Muslims, Latinos, Iraqis and U.S. military veterans.

Protesters marched northwest along Fourth Avenue to Denny Way, waving Palestinian flags and carrying mock coffins.

“Occupation is a crime,” many of them yelled before returning to Westlake Center along Fifth Avenue.

Leading the protesters was a group of Palestinian-American children, who had a makeshift stretcher with a doll splattered with red paint. Several wore bulls-eye targets that read, “Am I your next target?”

The protestors were angered by recent actions of Israel, which on Saturday sent military forces into the neighboring Gaza Strip. It was the Jewish state’s latest move in its eight-day offensive against Hamas, the ruling party in Gaza, aimed at forcing the Islamist Palestinian group to stop firing rockets at Israel’s southern cities.

Israel began its aerial assault on Dec. 27, saying it wanted to halt rocket attacks after a six-month cease-fire with Hamas expired Dec. 19. The Israeli army contends that militants have launched more than 3,000 rockets and mortar shells at Israel since the beginning of 2008.

For their part, Hamas refused to renew the cease-fire because it says Israel had not eased its economic blockade of Gaza, and launched 70 rockets at Israel the day before the cease-fire ended.

Officials estimate more than 435 Palestinians died since Israel started its offensive. Four Israelis have also died in the violence. The United Nations estimates at least a quarter of the Palestinians killed by Israeli airstrikes on Hamas militants were civilians.

The Israeli government has rejected calls for a temporary cease-fire, saying it would be a “mistake” to give the movement time to rearm and regroup. Hamas, which denies Israel’s right to exist, seized control of Gaza in 2007 after a brief power-sharing arrangement with Abbas, of the rival Fatah movement.

In late December, the American Jewish Committee’s Greater Seattle Chapter released a statement, saying that Israel supports a two-state solution for coexistence but that Hamas “calls for Israel’s destruction.”

Before Israel launched its attacks, the group said, government leaders encouraged Hamas to stop its “reign of terror.”

“We mourn the loss of innocent lives, but it is important to understand that these tragic losses flow directly from Hamas’ reckless drive to undermine and destroy Israel — whatever the cost,” the statement reads. “We also hope and pray that Hamas and its supporters soon come to their senses and choose the path of peace.”

Although many people on Saturday applauded the protesters, Seattle resident Erin Lee, 30, walked by Westlake Center and questioned their actions.

“I’m definitely for Israel,” she said. “Palestine has done attacks in the past. It’s an ongoing fight.”

Throughout Saturday’s protest and during the march, Everett resident George Bentley, 46, waved an Israeli flag. At times, some protesters stood near him and tried to put their signs in front of him.

“I am here to support Israel while they defend themselves from a vicious series of attacks that have been going on since the day that Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip,” Bentley said.

Bentley is neither Jewish nor an Israeli citizen, but said he showed up because Israel is a U.S. ally. Israel, he added, has been doing its “best” to limit civilian casualties but injured and dead people are a risk of urban warfare.

Siraj Lala, a 35-year-old from India, stood at Westlake Center with a sign that read “End Israeli Apartheid.”

“I think the best resolution is a two-state resolution,” the Redmond resident said. “That Israel has it owns state and Palestinians have their own state.”

In Boston
Jan 3 2009
(Stephen Iandoli, NECN) – As images of the violence in Gaza spread throughout the world, so, too, did the sounds of protest.

From the Middle East to Asia, Africa, South America and here in Boston, groups have gathered to express disdain at what they perceive to be a “U.S.-funded Israeli aggression in Gaza.”

Hundreds congregated on Copley Square on Saturday afternoon, waving signs and banners and wearing the names of those who have died in the Gaza Strip. Surrounded by about a dozen Boston Police officers, the large group marched down, and around, Boylston Street and Downtown Crossing.

“We are trying to tell America, ‘look at what’s happening, look at the carnage that’s happening to a tiny spit of land’,” President of Gaza Mental Health Foundation Nancy Murray said at the rally.

Consul General for Israel in New England, Nadav Tamir, has said all along that his country has the right to defend itself against Hamas — a militant group to some, terrorist to others.

The next step in the escalating conflict began late Saturday, when Israel unleashed its tanks and infantry in what it said would be a “lengthy” ground attack in Gaza.

There were reportedly 12 groups that helped organize Saturday’s protest in Boston. One of the last stops along the march route had them stopping at the Israeli Consulate.

Nadav Tamir, meanwhile, said several pro-Israel rallies were planned for the coming days. He planned on attending one such rally in Rhode Island on Sunday.

January 3 2009

Anger over the Israeli assault on Gaza spilled into Times Square on Saturday, as hundreds of protesters condemned the attacks in a demonstration that stretched four blocks and clogged much of central tourist district for several hours.

The protest came as Israeli troops began a ground incursion into the Hamas-controlled territory in what officials described as an effort to end Hamas rocket attacks on southern Israel. The land campaign follows eight days of Israeli airstrikes that have killed more than 430 Palestinians, many of them civilians.

News of the escalation came midway through the demonstration and cast a pall over the crowd as it was announced over loudspeakers and crept across the news tickers nearby. But many protesters said they were not surprised, and some sounded a defiant note.

“As organized as the Palestinian community is here in the United States, we already knew this was going to happen, and I think the Palestinian people in Gaza have expected it,” said Linda Sarsour, 28, a Palestinian-American social worker from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, home to one of the country’s oldest Arab communities. “Now it’s time for Israel to come in and face the people on the ground. It’s all-out war now, and we’ll see what happens.”

Demonstrators waved signs that read “Stop Massacres in Gaza” and “End the Siege.” Speakers led the crowd in chants of “Free, free Palestine.” The protest was made up predominantly of people of Middle Eastern or Arab descent, but also included Jewish groups, students and others who support an independent Palestinian state. Many, whether Palestinian or not, wore black-and-white kaffiyehs, the traditional Palestinian scarf, and waved Palestinian flags.

Police cordoned off part of the sidewalk and a lane and a half of Seventh Avenue from 42nd Street to 38th Street to accommodate the crowd. The demonstrators then marched in a slow procession along 42nd Street to the Israeli Consulate on Second Avenue.

The protesters drowned out a small counterdemonstration of a few dozen people who gathered across Seventh Avenue from the larger crowd before also moving to the Consulate. They waved Israeli and American flags, and carried banners condemning Hamas, one of the two main Palestinian political groups that since 2007 has been in control of the Gaza Strip.

“Blame Hamas; Destroy Hamas,” read a banner carried by Buddy Macy, a 52-year-old small-business owner from New Jersey who helped organize the counterprotest.

The two groups hurled insults — each calling the other racists and terrorists — but mostly kept their distance. The police said there were no arrests.

The anger mirrored tensions that have played on a global stage. The Arab world and several foreign leaders have condemned the attacks, and the United Nations has called for a cease-fire. Israel and the Bush administration have defended the attacks, saying Hamas provoked the airstrikes by firing rockets into southern Israel. At least four Israelis had died from Hamas rockets before the ground assault began.

“They may say, sure, this is disproportional and only a few Israelis have died,” Mr. Macy said. “Why is this disproportional? You have to protect yourselves. If you and your family lived in a home and there was a rocket within a hundred meters of you, wouldn’t you call the National Guard? Wouldn’t you call everyone you could?”

Many in the pro-Palestinian crowd brought their children, and came from towns and mosques across the region to be there. Ned Abu Irsid, 40, a gas station owner in Monroe, in Orange County, drove his wife and three children two hours to join the demonstration. His children, ages 10, 8, and 5, were bundled up in down jackets to protect them from the winter chill. Two of them waved small American flags, the other a Palestinian flag.

“The massacre of the Palestinian people is really a horrible thing,” Mr. Irsid said, “and that’s the least we can do, is to come down and make our voices heard a little bit.”

Protesters here implore Israel to halt bombing

ST. LOUIS

“We want to talk. Interview us.”

The three little girls were too adorable to resist. Their olive-colored skin accented their deep chocolate eyes and dark hair. Ayah, 8, the leader of the group, tapped me on the leg with a pink gloved hand. Her companions, Juhaina, 9, and Asalla, 7, stood with her, nervously bouncing on tiptoe at the idea of being interviewed.

It was cold Thursday, the first day of the new year. I had driven to the corner of Lindell and Grand boulevards to attend the Instead of War Coalition’s demonstration in “solidarity with the people of Gaza.”

It was the seventh day of the military blitz Israeli officials say they launched in retaliation of rockets fired by the militant group Hamas. The tally that evening left 420 dead and more than 2,000 wounded, according to Palestinian emergency services. United Nations officials said about 25 percent of the dead are civilians. According to international aid agencies, hundreds of homes have been obliterated, and food, fuel and medical supplies are all running short.

“We want all them to stop the bombing now,” said Ayah. “We don’t want any more Palestinian people to die.”

Juhaina was a bit more shy. After I asked why she had attended the demonstration, the girl struggled for words before settling on a somewhat lyrical response:

“Um, ’cause we’re from Palestine, too, and ’cause, um, we just want to say… Gaza, Gaza, don’t you cry, Palestine will never die.”

A wave of shame rushed over me. I had no intention of using Juhaina’s poem. Her words indicate favoritism for the people of Gaza. Columns I have written in the past about the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis have received voluminous, angry responses. Critics claim that I’m not versed enough on the decades-long turmoil in the region to speak authoritatively. That may be true. But the columns certainly didn’t fit the “anti-Semitic” or “pro-Muslim” labels some had attached.

The responses are somewhat predictable. President George W. Bush has repeatedly stated unconditional support of Israel. Western media seem to side with the country, often citing the terrorists acts of groups like Hamas as precursors to retaliatory strikes. To many Americans, “Muslim” automatically equates with “terrorism.” They don’t consider the vast divide between violent extremists and innocent civilians.

Considering the passionate division regarding the conflict and the “with us or against us” rhetoric, I sometimes find myself hesitant to step into the fray.

However, it was the question of “loyalty” that drew me to the rally.

Local activist Hedy Epstein is part of the Instead of War group. Epstein, 84, is a Holocaust survivor who consistently speaks out against what she perceives as injustices afforded Palestinians by the Israeli government. The diminutive activist didn’t blanch when I asked if solidarity with Gaza meant automatic denouncement of Israel.

“No, it is not. I am not anti-Israel. I am anti-Israeli government policies and practices,” Epstein responded. “I know there have been rockets shot into Israel … that, too, must stop. But, in Leviticus it says you should not stand idly by when people are being hurt and killed. So standing with the Palestinians in Gaza is not anti-Semitic.”

The Rev. Elston K. McCowan, who’s running for mayor of St. Louis, also attended the rally. When asked the “solidarity” question, McCowan pointed to people in the crowd: “Jews, Christians and Muslims are among us,” he said. “This is not anti-Israeli, it’s anti-war.”

McCowan asked whether it’s “anti-American” when United States citizens protest against their government. His campaign, he added, is a protest of sorts against Mayor Francis Slay’s administration, McCowan said: “We’re not anti-St. Louis. It’s just something we ought to do.”

The little girls I met Thursday brought me face-to-face with my own cowardice and what I “ought to do.” How dare I fret about angry readers when innocent children who look like Ayah, Juhaina and Asalla are losing their lives?

No matter how uninformed I may be about the nuances of tyranny in Gaza and Israel, I instinctively know that bombing kills, not only the “bad guys” but innocent men, women and children, too.

It’s a point Faten Salem, another local Palestinian-American at the rally, graciously articulated:

“I’m a mother of four. I hate to see any mother — no matter race, religion, color, background or culture — go through this. In Gaza, there’s no medicine and no food. It breaks my heart as a mother,” Salem said.

Official versions of Salem’s observations have been echoed by spokesmen for the U.N. Security Council, the Arab League, the European Union and other international voices calling for a cease-fire.

That night, I also met sisters Banan and Badia Ead. Both were born in the United States but lived in Ramallah in the West Bank during heavily restricted, but less deadly, times. Banan, 30, and Badia, 24, described the bombings as “a completely disproportionate use of force against a civilian population.”

“The people dying over there are not Hamas, they’re Palestinians, and they’re human beings,” Banan explained. “I can’t imagine how the people feel right now to have bombs dropped on them and then to be blamed for those bombs.”

Badia is aware and empathizes with the fear Israelis experience from Hamas-launched rockets. However, she said “We always hear that Israelis are living in fear and want security, but we never hear that the Palestinians are living in fear, too, and our greatest fears are coming to fruition. We actually are dying, and our buildings are being destroyed.”

Bombing Gaza or Israel will not bring about peace, the sisters insist. Badia prays that “voices of reason” from U.S. leaders will help stem the violence. Banan wants both the bombings and rocket attacks that are “killing children, killing people, human beings … to just stop.”

The sisters’ plea matched comments from others I met Thursday night, including an 84-year-old activist and Holocaust survivor, a grieving Palestinian mother and three, dark-eyed, precious little girls.

Their innocent faces override my petty concerns about misplaced loyalty and vicious reader response. I don’t need a depth of understanding to confidently repeat Ayah’s wish:

“Stop the bombing now.”

Gaza protests in St. Petersburg

Protests about conflict in Gaza

Protests about conflict in Gaza

ST. PETERSBURG, FL

The conflict in the Gaza strip brought out loud opinions in Pinellas County.  About 100 people showed up in support of the Palestinian view while a smaller group stood across the Baywalk area holding signs supporting Israel.

St. Petersburg Police were on hand to keep the protest peaceful but it didn’t prevent the shouting and the expressing of opinions.

Nothing in the demonstration resulted in arrests.  Both sides agreed peace is necessary and the fighting needs to end.

The protest was organized by groups called ANSWER, Rise up Tampa Bay and St. Pete for Peace while counter protests showed up after publicity of the protest became known.

In San Francisco

– Since the Israeli offensive against Gaza began a week ago, 18-year-old San Francisco City College student Ahmed Alkhatib can check in with his family only once a day – and that’s if the phones work.

Otherwise, Alkhatib can only hope that his parents, two brothers and two sisters will stay safe in their Gaza home as they watch bombs fall around them. And, much like tens of thousands of people around the world did Saturday, he can protest.

Alkhatib and hundreds of others who flocked to San Francisco’s Market Street on Saturday evening said they were there to protest the Israeli ground invasion, which began earlier that day. But they also had their sights set closer to home: Many said they want to urge American leaders and citizens to oppose any financial support of the Israeli government by boycotting and divesting from companies that support the Middle East state.

“I do feel powerless and guilty, because I am part of the (American) establishment that is financing and supplying the occupation,” said Alkhatib, a Pacifica resident who came to the United States three years ago as an exchange student and was unable to return to Gaza because of the violence.

“But I also feel powerful,” he said. “If I wasn’t here, there would be nobody to talk about my family, nobody to tell, through my family’s story, that the violence is not just compromising one family, it is compromising thousands.”

The San Francisco rally began with several hundred demonstrators gathering around 5 p.m. at Market and Powell streets. By 6 p.m., the crowd – many of them waving Palestinian flags and wearing head scarves – had swelled to about 500, and marched up Market Street to City Hall. There were no counterprotests, as there have been in days past.

Many protesters, such as San Francisco resident Ateyeh Ateyeh, were Palestinian.

“This is the least we could do to protest our government’s action,” said the U.S. citizen who fled the West Bank in 1989 and brought his wife and four children to the rally. “We don’t want to say, ‘Support the Palestinians.’ … We just want to say, ‘Stay neutral, stop sending American planes and our tax dollars.’ ”

Many simply urged peace.

Francesca Rosa, a 54-year-old San Francisco resident, held an olive branch in one hand and a Palestinian flag in the other. And Natalie Hrizi, also of San Francisco, garnered loud cheers as she spoke to the crowd through a bullhorn.

“Palestine isn’t just about Palestine – it’s about all of us who stand for peace,” she said. “It’s about all of us who stand against racism and for justice.”

The San Francisco rally – the fifth of the week – was small and peaceful compared to many elsewhere in the world.

In Europe, tens of thousands of people demonstrated in major cities Saturday against Israel’s bombardment of Gaza.

In London, at least 10,000 people marched past Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s Downing Street residence to a rally in Trafalgar Square. Outside Downing Street, hundreds of protesters threw shoes at the gates that block entry to the narrow road.

Shoe-throwing has become a popular way to express protest and contempt since an Iraqi journalist pelted President Bush with a pair in Baghdad last month.

Rallies also were held in other British cities – including Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow. Elsewhere in Europe, protests in Paris, Amsterdam, Rome and Berlin all drew big crowds.

In Paris, police said 21,000 marched through the streets, shouting “We are all Palestinians” and “Israel assassin.” Later, about 500 protesters threw objects at police, burned Israeli flags, overturned and torched cars, and vandalized several shops, police said.

Angry protests continued for a second day in Turkey, where about 5,000 demonstrators in Ankara shouted “killer Israel.”

In the Netherlands, thousands of people marched through Amsterdam. One banner declared: “Anne Frank is turning in her grave. Oh Israel!”

In Athens, a few of the 5,000 protesters threw stones and gasoline bombs at police outside the Israeli Embassy. Riot police retaliated with tear gas and stun grenades.

More protests are planned, including another in San Francisco at noon today at Powell and Market streets. On Saturday, there is an 11 a.m. event in San Francisco’s Civic Center.

US court extends Dr. Aafia Siddiqui’s sanity probe

December 19, 2008

NEW YORK
A US court has extended a probe into whether a Pakistani neuroscientist is mentally fit to stand trial on charges that she tried to murder US officers in Afghanistan.

Judge Richard Berman said the federal court in New York would meet again February 23 after psychiatrists for the prosecution and the defence have had time to evaluate Aafia Siddiqui’s state of mind.

Berman said that psychiatric evaluations should first decide  “the issue of competence” and also make a “recommendation to the  future cause of action.”

Siddiqui, a US-educated scientist whose family lives in Karachi, was deported in August from Afghanistan to New York and is currently being treated at a government psychiatric hospital in Texas.

Berman said that he believed Siddiqui, who was shot in the stomach during her allegedly failed murder attempt in Afghanistan, was in good hands. “She’s in a supportive environment.”

According to defence attorney Elizabeth Fink, Siddiqui, 36, is suffering hallucinations that feature her dead or missing children.

But Fink also said that “from what I see… she is in the best situation she can be.”

Prosecutors allege Siddiqui was first detained in July by Afghan police and that shortly after, while in custody, she grabbed a rifle and fired on visiting US officers.

Fink says that Siddiqui is not only innocent of those charges, but the victim of five years in secret US or Afghan custody — an experience responsible for her current mental illness.

Madoff house arrest ordered as European banks reel

December 17 2008

By Grant McCool and John Poirier

NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Disgraced financier Bernard Madoff, accused of orchestrating a $50 billion (33 billion pound) fraud, was placed under house arrest on Wednesday as BNP Paribas  became the latest European bank to be sideswiped by the scandal.

A federal judge ordered the 70-year-old former pillar of Wall Street confined to his $7 million Manhattan apartment and told Madoff’s wife to surrender her U.S. passport by noon on Thursday.

Madoff will be fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet and will only be allowed to leave his home for appointments prearranged with authorities.

The changes in bail conditions for the one-time Nasdaq Stock Exchange chairman were ordered a day after U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox offered an embarrassing mea culpa for the agency’s lack of oversight of Madoff’s investment advisory firm.

A rewrite of U.S. regulations to prevent a relapse of the Madoff fiasco will be high on the agenda of the new U.S. Congress, U.S. Rep. Paul Kanjorski said. He said he will convene a congressional inquiry in early January to focus on the case.

Kanjorski, who chairs the House Capital Markets Subcommittee, called the matter “deeply disturbing,” and said the scandal only weakens “already-battered investor confidence in our securities markets.”

BNP’s stock was the main loser among Europe’s top banks after it announced an unexpected 11-month loss at its CIB investment bank unit, blamed partly on exposure to Madoff.

“Generally there is a sense of nervousness going on with Madoff’s alleged fraud and BNP’s losses,” said Fox-Pitt Kelton analyst David Williams.

In Asia, Great Eastern Holdings Ltd , the insurance arm of Singapore’s Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp , said it had an indirect exposure of about S$64 million (US$43.93 million) to Madoff.

In Europe, the Dutch pension fund of Royal Dutch Shell Plc  said it had a $45 million exposure.

YEARS TO SORT OUT LOSSES

An investor protection group in the United States said it could take several years to sort through investor losses.

The Securities Investor Protection Corp is overseeing the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC.

Madoff, who counted celebrities and many friends among his investors, was unable to obtain four co-signers to guarantee his $10 million bond.

Only two people, his wife, Ruth, and brother, Peter, had signed it as of Wednesday morning. Peter Madoff also worked at Madoff’s firm.

In lieu of two additional signatures, Madoff and the government agreed that his wife surrender her passport and put up properties in her name in Montauk, New York, and Palm Beach, Florida.

Madoff will not be required to appear in court for a bail hearing unless he fails to file the documents on the additional conditions by Monday, the deadline set by the judge.

A preliminary hearing and appearance by Madoff was scheduled for January 12.

Cox’s admission that the SEC had missed obvious red flags in the Madoff case was seen as the latest in a series of black eyes to the U.S. securities watchdog, already under fire for weak oversight as U.S. banks loaded up on risky assets that have ripped huge holes in their balance sheets.

Cox said the agency’s failure to catch Madoff’s alleged massive Ponzi scheme was “deeply troubling.” Under a Ponzi scheme, later investors’ funds were used to pay returns to initial investors.

Cox asked the agency’s inspector general to probe the SEC’s conduct in the Madoff case. Madoff’s niece, Shana Madoff, a compliance lawyer at his firm, is married to a former SEC lawyer, Eric Swanson, who was the agency’s assistant director in the office of compliance inspections and examinations.

A spokesman for Swanson said his romantic relationship with his wife began years after the compliance team he helped supervise inquired into Bernard Madoff’s securities operations.

In another sign of Madoff’s close ties to the powerful, U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey has removed himself from involvement in the investigation, a department spokesman said.

He declined to discuss the reason. Mukasey is leaving office in January.

Marc Mukasey, a son of the attorney general, told Reuters on Wednesday that he represents Frank DiPascali, a senior official at Madoff’s firm. The younger Mukasey leads white-collar defense and special investigations at New York law firm Bracewell & Giuliani.

Madoff, accused of defrauding hundreds of wealthy investors including Ezra Merkin, the former chairman of auto finance company GMAC, and real estate and newspaper mogul Mortimer Zuckerman, faces up to 20 years in prison and a maximum fine of $5 million if convicted.

At least two putative class-action lawsuits have been filed in U.S. district court in Manhattan over investments handled by Madoff.

On Wednesday, an investor sued Gabriel Capital LP, its manager Merkin and auditor BDO Seidman for “gross negligence” in handing over at least 27 percent of Gabriel investment capital to Madoff. A similar lawsuit was filed by New York Law School on Tuesday against Ascot Partners LP, Merkin and BDO Seidman.

Madoff victims threaten legal action and there certainly are many

Madoff victims threaten legal action

Banks and investment firms blamed for introducing clients to ‘$50bn fraudster’

By Stephen Foley in New York
December 17 2008

The victims of the world’s biggest fraud are raising harsh questions about how Bernard Madoff was able to run his $50bn (£33bn) scam for so long without his staff, the authorities or his trading partners noticing.

A firestorm of legal action is gathering as individuals who lost their life savings and charities threatened to pursue the banks and investment firms that made their ill-fated introduction to Mr Madoff.

“If this were a traditional bank robbery, the eyewitness reports would say Mr Madoff walked out with billions of dollars as someone held the door open for him,” said Jeffrey Zwerling, a lawyer representing some of the victims. “There is just no way that this happens without help of some kind.”

The fall-out from Mr Madoff’s arrest on Thursday is being felt around the world as banks, hedge funds, charitable organisations and thousands of well-to-do individuals tot up their losses. With each passing hour, new victims come to light, often in the tight-knit world of Jewish philanthropy, where Mr Madoff managed cash for numerous charities and for many of their biggest donors.

Christopher Cox, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the US financial regulator, said last night that he was “gravely concerned by the apparent multiple failures over at least a decade” and that he had ordered “full and immediate review of the past allegations regarding Mr Madoff and his firm and the reasons they were not found credible”.

More European finance houses confessed to losses, including Crédit Mutuel, France’s second-largest bank. Regulators in Spain said 224 investment funds in the country had been exposed and faced losses of €107m (£97m). Among the celebrity victims revealed yesterday is Uma Thurman. Her husband, Arpad Busson, had £145m invested with Mr Madoff through his hedge fund. A charity connected to Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director, was already among the list of victims. UK banks HSBC, Royal Bank of Scotland and Santander – owner of Abbey and Alliance & Leicester – have previously admitted exposure of more than $5bn between them.

The breathtaking fraud, committed over many years by one of Wall Street’s best-respected investment managers, was uncovered only when Mr Madoff confessed to his two sons a week ago that he was “finished”. In a criminal lawsuit filed the next day, public claims that Madoff Investment Securities was managing $17bn of client money and had made double-digit returns every year for almost a decade were “all just one big lie”, he had told them.

Mr Madoff was running a giant pyramid scheme, paying out to existing investors with money coming in from new ones. But as the credit crunch began to bite, investment dwindled and there was a surge in requests to cash out. It proved to be his undoing.

Lawyers said the investment managers who recommended that their clients invest with Mr Madoff should have investigated his methods, which he had shrouded in mystery. They pointed to red flags going back as far as 1999, when Harry Markopolos, a securities industry executive, urged the SEC to investigate Madoff Investment Securities. Last year, investigators hired by potential investors urged them not to invest because they were suspicious.

The New York Law School – which fears losing $3m of its endowment fund – launched a lawsuit against one of its financial managers, Ascot Partners, Ascot’s boss, Ezra Merkin, and the auditor, BDO Seidman. The defendants “recklessly or with gross negligence caused and permitted $1.8bn, virtually the entire investment capital of Ascot” to be handed over to Mr Madoff, according to the suit. Separately, Yeshiva University said it was considering its options after it lost about $110m.

Mr Madoff is due in court today for a bail hearing. He was released on a $10bn bond last week but has failed to find the required three co-guarantors. Meanwhile, details are emerging of the two separate sets of books he kept: ones showing the real losses, the other detailing the fictitious trading and profits, which he would mail to investors.

Mr Madoff has told the FBI he acted alone. His sons, Andrew and Mark, work in a different part of the business and the Massachusetts Secretary of State, William Galvin, did not suggest his brother Peter was involved.

The victim: A charity devoted to the poor

As well as the super-rich circling Mr Madoff in his playgrounds of Palm Beach, Florida, and Long Island, New York, there are scores of philanthropic victims of his record-breaking fraud, the JEHT Foundation among them. Since it was formed in 2000, it has given away $62m to fund research, to lobby for progressive reforms, and to prop up projects in some of the most deprived areas of the US. It harnessed the fortune of the late real estate mogul Norman Levy, but the family’s money was invested with Mr Madoff, and is probably now gone.

Bank billions at risk from Wall Street Fraud

Citibank Bailout May Leave You Holding the Bag in More Ways Than One

Citigroup Bailout Leaves Shareholders in the Cold

November 24 2008

Citibank news is good for the upper management group at Citigroup! A Citibank bailout marks the third time in recent months that Uncle Sam – and by extension you and I – offers a helping hand and million of dollars in an attempt to keep a financial institution from going under.

Citibank Bailout Prevents Citibank Bankruptcy … For Now

WMDT, ABC reports that $20 billion from the $700 billion bailout package will indeed be invested in Citibank. In return, Uncle Sam – and you and I – receive $7 billion of “preferred shares.” But wait, there is more!

The Washington Post reports that in addition to the bailout funds, Uncle Sam will also take on the role of protector against future losses. While Citigroup would have to eat the next $29 billion in losses it shows, the United States government will cover “most of the losses beyond that amount.”

Wagging tongues assert that what is needed, really, is Citibank bankrupt, but the Citibank bailout in addition to the prior investment of $25 billion that Uncle Sam already dropped into Citigroup, may halt this process.

Citigroup Bailout and Its Effect on Shareholders

The Citigroup bailout is not as favorable for shareholders as early estimates had hoped. This Citi bailout package is supposedly going to require a curtailing of executive level pay, but it most certainly decreases share dividends to $0.01/share/quarter for a period of three years.

Citibank Bailout Rewards Bad Behavior

Citibank business practices have been making headlines over the last decade, most notably its 2004 short sale on the European bond market and its theft of funds from 53,000 credit card customer accounts.

Lest you forget, it was Citigroup’s 1998 lobbying efforts, as reported by Open Secrets, that paved the way for banks to get involved in other forms of business such as insurance. Citibank lobbyists were also front and center when bankruptcy reform was discussed, and consumers currently hoping for Chapter 7 relief know how much more difficult this process has become.

Beholden to politicians, Citibank has heavily investment in the American political process, favoring the Democratic Party with $2,248,481 versus the Republican Party which only received $1,483,884. This totals $3,736,915 in overall political donations that perhaps could have been better spent protecting the company from its impending losses.

Citibank Bailout May Not Halt Layoffs

There is no word if the Citigroup bailout will prevent the loss of more than 50,000 Bay Area jobs the San Francisco Chronicle reported on last week.

U.S. agrees to invest $20 billion to bailout Citigroup

November 24 2008

Citigroup Inc. reached an agreement with the U.S. Treasury, the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. over the weekend that will inject $20 billion worth of new capital into the company.

This is in addition to the $25 billion infusion already approved by the government through the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP).

Citi (NYSE: C) officials in New York say the move will strengthen the company’s capital ratios, reduce risk and increase financial liquidity. The plan was unanimously approved by the lender’s board of directors.

Under the terms of the agreement, the U.S. Treasury Department will invest $20 billion in Citi preferred stock under the TARP.

The TARP is the $700 billion financial rescue package approved by Congress in September. The Treasury Department is offering to purchase up to $250 billion worth of senior preferred shares of U.S.-controlled banks and savings associations. The program is designed to provide financial institutions with fresh capital in exchange for the government taking an equity stake in the lenders.

Citi will also issue $7 billion in preferred stock to the U.S. Treasury and the FDIC as payment for a government guarantee on $306 billion worth of securities, loans and commitments backed by residential and commercial real estate and other assets.

The guarantee, Citi officials say, will free up an additional $16 billion worth of capital for the company.

Citi has also agreed to issue warrants to the U.S. Treasury and FDIC for some 254 million shares of the company’s stock at a strike price of $10.61. Citi has also agreed to limit its quarterly common stock dividend to one-cent per share for the next three years.

Under this agreement, Citi will assume any losses on the portfolio for up to $29 billion on a pretax basis. The government agencies, in turn, will assume 90 percent of any losses above that level.

Citi has also been provided with expanded access to the Federal Reserve’s Primary Dealer Credit Facility and the discount window. This will provide additional liquidity for the lender, if needed. Citi also has access to the Federal Reserve’s Commercial Paper Funding Facility.

The agreement specifies that the company’s executive compensation plan, including bonuses, must be submitted to and approved by the U.S. government.

“This weekend, the U.S. government and Citi worked together in an unprecedented way to address market confidence and the recent decline in Citi’s stock price,” Citi CEO Vikram S. Pandit said in a statement. “We reached an agreement based on an innovative market solution to further strengthen our capital ratios, reduce risk, and increase liquidity. We appreciate the tremendous effort by the government to assure market stability.”

A week ago, Citi announced that it plans to eliminate 53,000 jobs as the company works to stem financial losses. The company posted a third-quarter loss of $2.8 billion.

The lender employs 17,000 people in Texas. Citi operates a call center in Northwest San Antonio and has 10 Citibank branches in the city.

In October, the company lost a bidding war with Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) over the purchase of Wachovia Corp. Wells Fargo is in the process of buying Wachovia for $15.1 billion.

Hate Messages from KKK Rears Its Ugly Head On Long Island

Incident Follows Alleged Gang Bias Killing Of Man In Patchogue And Anti-Barack Obama Graffiti In Mastic

Hateful Newsletter Turns Up On Windshields And Driveways

This newsletter appeared in several driveways and on car windshields in the Long Island community of Islip Terrace on Nov. 12, 2008.

ISLIP TERRACE, N.Y. (CBS) ― Messages of hate were left at the front doors of homes in our area on Wednesday.

Residents on an Islip Terrace street said hate hit their driveways and doorsteps in the form of literature called “The Klansman’s Voice.” It is from the Ku Klux Klan and no one seems to know who delivered it to dozens of Suffolk County homes.

“Everything about it is scary to me,” preschool teacher Jill Thompsett said. “I just didn’t think it would be around here.”

Thompsett said she felt sick as she read all six pages of small type. It begins with a plea that everyone buy American-made products.

On page 1 the newsletter reads: “How much longer are you going to wait before you do something to help this problem we all have. Continue on this slippery slope and your children may be learning Spanish and Chinese in school.”

Then the focus shifts to immigration.

“The part, ‘Jose, we’re coming for you were going to get you,’ that’s the threat,” Thompsett said.

What she’s talking about is a passage from page 4 that says: “A bad storm is coming our way. Yes folks, things are going to become ugly for us — no doubt about it. But things are going to become very, very ugly for you, Jose.”

“A lot of typos a lot of ignorant people,” Thompsett said.

The biggest shocker was the inclusion of a business card that reads “join the KKK,” with a web address and an ominous P.O. box.

“State office in Babylon, N.Y. … Babylon, N.Y. … right here and that’s scary,” Thompsett said.

Suffolk County police are investigating this at a time when its Hate Crimes Unit is busy on several other cases, including one in Mastic, where dozens of cars were discovered with painted on death threats against President-elect Barack Obama.

“It’s something that, you know, we don’t tolerate in Suffolk County,” Suffolk Police Commissioner Richard Dormer said.

The car cases have the attention of the U.S. Secret Service. To get a handle on the hate crimes across Suffolk County, police are calling on everyone to help to get these cases solved.

Last month KKK newsletters were left on the windshields of commuter cars at train stations in Deer Park and Babylon.

Government Gives Record Aid To AIG

In a record bailout of a private company, the government on Monday provided a new $150 billion financial-rescue package to troubled insurance giant American International Group, including $40 billion for partial ownership.

November 10 2008


The action, announced by the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department, was taken as it became increasingly clear that an original financial lifeline thrown to AIG in September would be insufficient to stabilize the teetering company. All told, the moves boost aid to the company to more than $150 billion. Fed officials, however, expressed confidence that the money would be repaid to taxpayers.

The $40 billion infusion comes from the recently enacted $700 billion financial bailout package. The government is buying preferred shares of AIG stock, giving taxpayers an ownership stake in the company. In turn, restrictions will be placed on executive compensation at the firm.

As part of the new arrangement, the Federal Reserve is reducing a $85 billion loan it had made available to AIG to $60 billion. The Fed also is replacing a separate $37.8 billion loan to the insurance company with a $52.5 billion aid package.

The actions were needed to “keep the company strong and facilitate its ability to complete its restructuring process successfully,” the Federal Reserve said.

And that would be good for the fragile U.S. economy, said White House press secretary Dana Perino.

The new package “will allow AIG to continue to restructure themselves in a way that will not hurt the overall economy. AIG is a large, interconnected firm,” she said.

If the company were to fail, it would wreak havoc on the country’s already ailing economic health, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke determined back in September when the government first moved to help AIG, Perino said.

Shares of AIG added 32 cents, or 15.2 percent, to $2.43 in early-afternoon trading. The company’s stock has traded between $1.25 and $62.30 in the past year.

It marked the first time money from the $700 billion bailout package Congress enacted last month has gone to any company other than a bank.

Struggling U.S. auto companies — General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler — have been pressing the government for more financial assistance. The money would be on top of the $25 billion in loans that Congress passed in September to help retool auto plants to build more fuel-efficient vehicles.

The Treasury Department, which is overseeing the bailout program, has promised to inject $250 billion into banks in return for partial ownership. The original notion behind the bailout package was to help financial institutions lend money more freely again, one of the main reasons the economy is in danger of getting stuck in a long and painful recession.

Until Monday, all of AIG’s bailout relief was coming from the Fed.

The Fed, earlier this year, said it would loan a total of $123 billion to AIG. The insurance company was later allowed to access another $20.9 billion through the Fed’s “commercial paper” program. That’s where the Fed is buying mounds of companies’ short-term debt often used for crucial day-to-day expenses, such as payrolls and supplies.

Monday’s restructuring provides AIG with easier terms on the original Fed loan. The new package reduces the interest rate AIG will pay and will extend the loan term to five years from two, reducing the need for AIG to sell off business lines and other assets at firesale prices to repay the government.

Under the new $52.5 billion package, the loans will last for six years. Through two new facilities, the Fed will fund the purchase of both residential mortgage-backed securities from AIG’s portfolio, and collateralized debt obligations, which are complex financial instruments that combine various slices of debt.

By taking these troubled assets off AIG’s balance sheet, it should take stress off the company, giving it more breathing room and helping to prevent future losses, Fed officials said. The Fed doesn’t believe it will suffer losses because it is hopeful the market for such distressed investments will recover as the economy and financial markets rebound.

AIG reported Monday that continued financial market turmoil resulted in a large third-quarter loss.

The New York-based company said it lost $24.47 billion, or $9.05 per share, after a profit of $3.09 billion, or $1.19 per share, a year ago.

Results included pretax losses of $18.31 billion tied to the declining value of AIG’s investment portfolio. They also were hurt by catastrophe losses and charges related to restructuring.

Excluding items, operating losses totaled $3.42 per share — missing analysts’ average loss estimate of 90 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters.

In early October AIG said it would sell certain business units to pay off the $85 billion Fed loan. The company, however, said it plans to retain its U.S. property-and-casualty and foreign general insurance businesses. It also plans to keep an ownership interest in its foreign life-insurance operations.

AIG is a colossus on Wall Street and financial districts worldwide, with operations in more than 130 countries and $1 trillion in assets on its balance sheet.

Besides life, property and other insurance offerings, AIG provides asset-management services and airplane leases. Its myriad businesses are also linked to mutual funds, annuities and other retirement products held by millions of ordinary Americans.

But perhaps the biggest concern about AIG is the dizzying array of complex financial instruments it structured for commercial banks, investment banks and hedge funds around the globe — many of which were directly or indirectly linked to the value of U.S. mortgages.

AIG Looting Continues

It’s No Joke: Federal Reserve Hires Failed Bank Executive

The Federal Reserve Bank is drawing jeers for hiring a former top executive from the now-defunct investment bank Bear Stearns to help it gauge the health of other banks.

The Federal Reserve Bank has hired the former head of risk management for Bear Stearns, which imploded this spring.

“How’s this for sweet irony?” business publication Portfolio.com needled the pick.

November 4 2008

By Justin Rood

Michael Alix was head of risk management for Bear Stearns for two years until the institution imploded this spring, a victim of its (risky) subprime-mortgage related investments.

Last Friday, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York quietly announced it had hired Alix to advise it on bank supervision.

“You’re kidding me,” said economic policy expert Dean Baker, of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Economic Policy and Research. While he didn’t know Alix personally, he said, “You would think [his record] would be a big strike against him.”

The collapse of Bear Stearns led to its pennies-on-the-dollar buyout by J.P. Morgan Chase; the bank’s shareholders saw their wealth plummet. To facilitate the buyout, the Fed agreed to assume potential billions in losses on bad Bear Stearns investments.

“[Alix] was the guy on the mast charged with yelling ‘iceberg’ just before the Titanic introducted its bow to a floating chunk of ice,” wrote financial expert and blogger John Carney on the web site Clusterstock.com, where he flagged the hire.

The Fed’s move “is sure to put to rest the notion that there are no second acts in American life,” Carney observed drily.

A spokesman for the Federal Reserve declined to comment.
