Looks like President Obama was duped about the realities of
Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany. We note his visit [see
below] and provide a scholarly documentation of the situation in the
This study by Mark Weber, a leading expert on the subject, shows beyond
a reasonable doubt that the camp was run by a communist organizaton of
inmates who carried on a reign of terror. Only the external control was
under the Germans. This astounding research should be shown to President
Obama. Also we challenge Jewish scholars to answer it if they can.
Latest war news: June 9, 10, 11:
Pakistan is facing a new invasion by its own military:
General Kayani launched a massive new bombardment of Islamic
populations on the Bannu-North Waziristan border. More than 100
civilians killed, 200 wounded. Indefinite curfew imposed on Bannu city.

Three Spotlights from Imam Badi Ali [North Carolina]
Spotlight One: More than three million Pakistanis have been
uprooted from their homes in Swat, Buner and Dir by General Kayani's
Pakistani army at the orders of America. This is GENOCIDE.
Journalists are being kept out of the stricken area to conceal
atrocities by the army and resistance by the Taliban. Every Pakistani
and every Muslim should speak out and condemn these crimes
Remember what Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, said: Allah does not punish you
for the crimes of others among you, but if evil is committed right in
front of you and you do nothing to stop it, then ALL of you will be
punished by Allah [Hadith in Musnad of Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal.]
Spotlight two: Is America a civilized nation? Look at Abu Ghraib
and Guantanamo Bay. Such inhumanity is rare indeed. Think about it,
Spotlight three: ISNA [so-called Islamic Society of North America]: is
holding its Annual Convention, this time in Washington, DC. ISNA has
given up all pretense of being an Islamic organization. The
Convention will be a fun fare. People will come to socialize, to find
mates, to buy and sell. To please the masters of ISNA, no serious
issues will be allowed. No Pakistan, no Afghanistan, no Iraq, no
Palestine, no Kashmir, no Chechnya, no Somalia, no Sudan, no political
prisoners, no problem with media control by Zionists, no criticism of
Obama's Zionist entourage, no forum for criticism or reform of ISNA.
This is a corporation working for the satanic forces of the power
structure. This is not Islam. ISNA is a mockery of Islam.

Alleged Holocaust Museum Shooter: Perfect story for Zionist Media:
Guilty before Trial:
Sad but true! The President of the United States had more to say about
the museum shooting than he said about the destruction of the entire
city of Gaza by Israel. He does not speak on police brutality against
June 10, 2009: A man named James Von Brunn tried to enter the so-called
Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC. He exchanged shots with museum
guards, injured one of them and was himself shot. Both were taken to
hospital where the guard died of his injuries.
This incident was a god-send for the corporate-zionist media. They went
on the rampage and within hours had "proven" the shooter not only to be
a murderer but an anti-semitic monster and perhaps a Klan man.
To top it all the dead guard turned out to be African American.
This was the ideal mix for the media: A White man tried to break into
the "Holocaust" museum and in the process killed a Black security guard.
Wolf Blitzer of CNN, himself a Jew and an Israel-firster, took the lead.
Lou Dobbs of CNN wanted to prove that one doesn't have to be a Jew to
do the dirty work of the Israel-firsters.
The media threw everything they could into the battle against this lone
88 year old man who had tried to break into their museum of hate. [He
didn't make it inside.] Among the media hounds was The Southern Poverty
Law Center [little to do with Law], an extreme Zionist clique which
steadily tries to prove that anti-semitism is a great danger to America
[though there have been ZERO serious incidents against Amercan Jews.].
Lou Dobbs called in a woman from the extreme Jewish group known as ADL
and gave her all the time she wanted.
Lou Dobbs also tried to link the museum violence to the Muslims
allegedly plotting to attack synagogues working for Israel.
Rachel Maddow [MSNBC TV] called in the Simon Wiesenthal representative
to add fuel to the fire. [She regularly tries to justify homosexuality,
using a major TV channel to do advocacy for a tiny but well funded and
organized fringe group.]
All this propaganda was carried out within a matter of hours. The
shooter now has little chance of getting justice. [Only parenthetically
it came out that the shooter actually fought as part of the U.S.
military during World War II AGAINST Nazi Germany.]
A big effort was made by the media to link the hatred of Jews with
hatred of Blacks. The guard killed in the incident was Black. What more
could the media want. They know that Black communities are not happy
with the Jews of America. Bernie the Jew Madoff made off with $50
billion while Black youths customarily get 10 to 15 to 25 years for
crossing state lines with drugs.
The Zionists know that the Jews are the victimizers all over the world
while Black people here and in Africa are victimized by the Zionists.
Israel is trying hard to stop Sudan from enjoying its oil wealth.
The blood diamonds come from Africa and enrich Jews as does much
of Africa's wealth [such as the gold from South Africa and uranium
The media and the Zionist power structure want to fool the Black
community into thinking that it has something in common with Jews. Mr
and Mrs Cohen [remember the Clinton admnistration?] were to put on a
play the evening of the incident linking Anne Frank with Emmit Till.
Till was lynched by White racists for looking at a White woman during
the era of segregation. He was 14. Anne Frank's story is not properly
authenticated. It was part of World War II propaganda. German children
did not not get any sympathy.
Hundreds of German children were killed in Dresden by British bombers
which set the city on fire. Churchill's Jewish adviser [the Prof. as he
was called] was behind the carpet bombing of German cities.
Till's lynching was a genuine atrocity carried out in peace time. Anne
Frank was one of millions of children whose lives were ruined by WWII.
German children were among the victims. Black people did not lynch
White children. So there is no equivalence here.
USE PEACEFUL MEANS: America is a very violent society. The media are
in Zionist control. It is downright stupidity to use violence against a
Jewish museum and expect public support. German Americans should
demonstrate at the Holocause Museum and demand that it be removed. Tens
of thousands of children are brought evey month from all over America
to visit the museum and thus brainwashed at an early age. They will
never know that British and American air fleets destroyed [literally
BURNED DOWN] EVERY city in Germany. That was the real holocaust. One
HUNDRED THOUSAND Germans were BURNED ALIVE in Dresden alone. That was,
literally, a holocaust.

starting July 4, 2009 in Lafayette Park outside the White House in
Everyone is invited to join us outside the White House in support of the
changes Americans voted for in the historic election of Obama. We spent
trillions to bail out America's corporations now it s time to bail out
the American people. On July 4, 2009 we will start baking bread with
the sun outside the White House and ask people to sign this petition:
PETITION - THE CHANGE WE KNEAD NOW - BAKE BREAD FOR WORLD PEACE
1. Implement universal government-paid (Single-Payer) healthcare for all
2. Free federal prisoner Leonard Peltier by executive order today
3. Solar energy collectors available for every house
4. Passenger trains connecting every city
5. Organic gardening classes in every school
6. Call for a global ceasefire
Sit with us outside the White House to inspire Obama to implement the
proposals of this petition within a year. America voted for change, but
so far corporate America has high-jacked our dreams. This is the moment
when Obama's supporters can push his administration to fulfill the
mandate of his victory. Obama has the power to begin implementing these
six priorities by July 4, 2010, so consider joining us outside the
White House. (You don't need to bake bread to participate)
Imagine thousands of people sitting peacefully outside the White House
day after day, encouraging President Obama to implement the changes he
promised to the people who elected him to office. Help us bake bread in
solar ovens to share with the hungry in the nation's capital, as well
as providing bread for the people sitting in support of making a better
future for all. Baking bread will be a visible example of the power and
strength of the sun, and a united people.
Imagine Obama positively responding to this petition and enacting

Tide Turning Against Israel. America's Economic Woes
The Real Reason Why Obama gave his Cairo Speech

by Hesham Tillawi, Ph.D

Jamaat al-Muslimeen's International Peace Conference in Baltimore
The Palestinian [Tillawi] emerges even as Obama worships at
"Israel must halt West Bank settlement activity..." -President Obama on
May 28, 2009 after meeting Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
"I want you to know that today I'll be speaking from my heart, and as a
true friend of Israel. And I know that when I visit with AIPAC, I am
among friends. Good friends. Friends who share my strong commitment to
make sure the bond between the United States and Israel is unbreakable
today, tomorrow and forever." Obama June 4, 2008 during his speech to
AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee)
On June 4, 2009 President Obama spoke to the Arab and Muslim "worlds".
On the surface at least, Obama's speech marked a turning point in the
American Administration speech on the Middle East in the last 60 years.
Predictably, his even-handed-with-the-Muslims-speech was received in
all the typical ways. Political operative Dick Morris characterized it
as America "turning her back on Israel" while Rep Gary Ackerman (D-NY)
said in reference to the settlements issue that "I don't think anybody
wants to dictate to an ally what they have to do in their own national
We are not witnessing the AIPAC controlled Congress waging the kind of
war, which those of us who are familiar with AIPAC's capabilities
expect. Very strange indeed.
From the beginning of this conflict in the Middle East, Palestinians and
many others around the world have accused America of being one-sided
when it came to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. This speech (for the
first time) however sounded as if America actually wants to be "fair
and balanced" as one infamous pro-Zionist news network likes to call
itself. It is obvious-considering some of what Obama said-why many in
Israel have their collective underwear in a knot. Rather than the
typical "let‘s blame Israel‘s enemies for all the unrest in the Middle
East" the new president stressed that tried-and-true truism that it
"takes two to tango" when he said-
"But if we see this conflict only from one side or the other, then we
will be blind to the truth: the only resolution is for the aspirations
of both sides to be met through two states, where Israelis and
Palestinians each live in peace and security."
During the recent Israeli war on Gaza where over 1300 Palestinians
(more than half of whom were women and children) were butchered and
Gaza destroyed beyond repair, Obama did not say a word publicly or
privately in criticizing the Jewish state and not even when the rest of
the world was. He even went further than just remaining silent on the
issue by sending a letter to Zalmay Khalilzad, the United States
representative to the UN with the message that "The Security Council
should clearly and unequivocally condemn the rocket attacks against
Israel.... If it cannot...I urge you to ensure that it does not speak
at all." He also added that he understood why Israel was forced to
close border crossings to Gaza where over one and a half million people
were left to die of hunger and lack of medicine.
We remember the barrage of attacks Obama endured back in March of 2008
while on the campaign trail in Iowa where he had a "slip of the tongue"
moment, expressing compassion for the plight of the Palestinians when
he said "Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people." As a
result, Obama spent the next nine months of his campaign proving his
love and commitment to Israel and the Jewish people. So what happened?
Why is Obama now "turning his back" on Israel?
Those who reject the idea he is doing just that should take stock of
the fact that within the Zionist community worldwide bells are ringing,
whistles are blowing, and in general a hurricane of screaming and
hollering is being heard ‘round the world about Obama's "anti-Semitism",
his being a "secret Muslim", a "Jew hater", a " friend of the
Palestinians" and of course "anti-Israel", as well as all the others
that cannot be listed here for reasons of decorum.
Those who understand the American political system know that someone
with those kind of credentials should not dream of being elected even
to a neighborhood association, much less the highest office in the
world. Obama was scrutinized by every Jew on the planet but yet he
became the president of the USA. Confused and boggled? Its ok stick
around it gets better. So how could Obama in his first term, and not in
his second term and early on make the kind of speech he made to the
As all persons know too well by now, the Jewish people throughout
history have been systematically rejected and thrown out of virtually
every country in which they lived. In 1290 they were expelled from
England, 1392 from France, 1492 from Spain- same year Columbus went out
looking for India, and 1497 from Portugal, and the list goes on and on.
The latest such experience was in the 30's and early 40's of the last
century during the Nazi's rein on power. The reasons cited by Hitler
himself were Jewish control of money, media, and political power
The recent Israeli-engineered/executed massacres in Lebanon and Gaza
coupled with the popularity of the Internet have (finally after 6
decades) exposed Israel for what her victims have always known her to
be-a murderous state with no concern for human life or the rules of
law. As a result, many people around the world are now rethinking their
support for the great experiment in Jewish self rule in the Middle East
and the Jews in general. The latest of such evidence is the defeat of
the ADL at the University of California at Santa Barbara against
Professor William I. Robinson. Added to that is the world financial
collapse that many squarely blame on Jewish control over money and
banking. The war on Iraq for Israel (combined with the above mentioned
factors) have many Jewish writers and leaders around the world (and
particularly in the US) sounding sirens of warning or maybe the sound
of Shofar- the Jewish Horn-in the interest of stopping the course of
history from repeating itself by going against their perceived sense of
"Manifest Destiny" even if only temporary.
In other words Jews in the US and around the world have realized the
"existential threat" Israel poses to worldwide Jewry as a result of its
behavior. Powerful Jewish interests on the left and the Right know what
"the Lobby" in Washington is doing must be stopped at least temporarily
until they can regroup and the world fall back asleep. More and more
people in the USA are learning from the likes of Mearsheimer and Walt
rather than from Fox and CNN, and those leaders know it is only a
matter of time before the masses in the US start (rightly or wrongly)
to better understand the realities of how their political and economic
systems truly function and turn against Jewish interests in the USA.
The Jewish people-as smart as they are-are trying now to change the
course of history by accepting the fact that the dream of greater
Israel from the Nile to the Euphrates must be abandoned-for the moment.
Unfortunately for the world that is not how the leadership in Israel
feels. Far-right extremists in Israel now rule the country and believe
they are obligated to "redeem the land" in order to redeem themselves
even if it means killing every Palestinian and destroying every
non-Jewish Holy Site. The charge that such assertions are mere
anti-Semitic conspiracy theories no longer holds water, as Jews-both
religious and irreligious-are "feeling the power" as it were and
letting the cat out of the bag as to what their idea of "redeeming the
land" really means. Case in point are the comments of one Rabbi Manis
Friedman-fellow traveler of Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor
Lieberman- who recently responded to the question "How should Jews
Treat Their Arab Neighbors" by saying- "I don't believe in western
morality, i.e. don't kill civilians or children, don't destroy holy
sites, don't fight during holiday seasons, don't bomb cemeteries, don't
shoot until they shoot first because it is immoral. The only way to
fight a moral war is the Jewish way: Destroy their holy sites. Kill
men, women and children (and cattle).The first Israeli prime minister
who declares that he will follow the Old Testament will finally bring
peace to the Middle East. ..."
Needless to say, going public with such statements in this modern
informational age, where sound bites can travel the globe in a matter
of seconds does not bode well for a nation trying to depict itself as a
‘light among nations' and the only democracy in the Middle East.
Obviously then, there are some within the Jewish community made very
nervous by such statements and have come to realize that the Jewish
state has actually become detrimental to Jewish survival in the world.
In short, the real fight we see taking place here is not one of
principals as much as it is one of the preferred tactics and timing.
Some in the Jewish community believe Israel is putting the whole Jewish
people in danger with its policies towards the Palestinians and it must
be stopped. Despite the racist, bigoted, violent statements being
leveled against him by Israelis and Jews the world over, the fact
nevertheless is that Obama is "God's messenger" sent to the Jewish
people, a modern-day messiah or the "second coming of Moses" if you
will. The Jews must leave this track of destruction which will lead
them to the same end they have experienced in centuries past-isolation
and expulsion. They must come out and be free from the grip of their
perennially-mad leaders whose only real goal-apart of waging war
against non-Jews-is devising new schemes for bringing persecution and
oppression on their own. Obama must lead them through and out of this
By settling the Palestinian Israeli issue under the two states solution
Israel is contained and transformed into a manageable beast. In other
words what Obama is doing falls squarely within the interest of Israel
in particular and the Jewish people in general. Make no mistake about
it, Obama will not "bravely and couragesly" go against the Jewish
community in the United States which happens to field an arsenal of
WMD's that includes but not limited to AIPAC, ADL,JDL, and JINSA. These
organizations understand that it is only a matter of time before the
story of the Holocaust, which was a major stepping stone in the
creation of Israel is exposed, and in turn leads to the loss of its
legitimacy in the eyes of the World. A huge embarrassment to all Jews
and western governments in the World. Now you understand why Israel and
the Jewish community would fight tooth and nail to protect the sanctity
of their Holocaust narrative, a war that they themselves know it will
come to an end not in their behalf.
You did not truly believe that America's banking system could fall
overnight did you? But it did. Is the economic and banking collapse in
the US part of this Jewish in-fight? We may have to wait few decades
before we will find out.
Of course don't forget also that the Arab and the Muslim worlds are the
only salvation left in the world for America's economic recovery. The
Chinese, Japanese, Europeans, and the Russians don't want to buy
America's Treasury Bills-which is how America issues money- anymore
because they don't believe they will ever get their money back. In the
cold reality of the business world, the only remaining people
susceptible to American arm-twisting is the Arab world. Therefore,
catering to the Arabs will not only put pressure on Israel, but will
also bring in economic benefits to an economically-beleaguered USA. The
only bad thing is, economic help from Arab countries will come much
faster than any thing Israel might relinquish under pressure.

Obama: Day 136
War Time Propaganda, 60 years old, accepted by President Obama to
June 5, 2009: BUCHENWALD, Germany (CNN) -- President Barack
Obama made an emotional visit to the former Nazi concentration camp at
Buchenwald, Germany, Friday, saying that the camp should serve as a
reminder of humanity's duty to fight the spread of evil.
President Obama visits Buchenwald with Chancellor Angela Merkel, left,
and survivor and activist Elie Wiesel.
The visit had personal significance for the president, whose
great-uncle helped liberate prisoners from the camp during World War II.
"I will not forget what I've seen here today," Obama said after touring
the camp with German Chancellor Angela Merkel; Holocaust survivor and
Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel, and survivor Bertrand Herz.
"These sites have not lose their horror with the passage of time,"
Obama said. "This place teaches us that we must be ever vigilant about
the spread of evil in our times. ... We have to guard against cruelty
in ourselves ...."
Wiesel, whose father died at Buchenwald, was imprisoned at the camp
during the final months of the war in 1945.
"Every war is absurd and meaningless," Wiesel said. "The world hasn't
learned. ... Had the world learned, there would have been no Cambodia
and no Rwanda and no Darfur and no Bosnia."
Buchenwald: Legend and Reality
Buchenwald is widely regarded as one of wartime Germany's most notorious
"death camps." In fact, though, this carefully cultivated image bears
little resemblance to reality ... The camp deserves another, more

Pakistan: General Kayani aims at expelling Entire Civilian
Population from North Waziristan Area.
Bursts of Fighting in South Waziristan, Swat, Buner and Dir.
On June 9, 2009 Pakistani military forces sealed off all roads leading
from North Waziristan into the city of Bannu. The army distributed
flyers ordering the entire population to leave their homes and go into
camps set up by the military. Anyone found in their homes would be
considered an enemy, the sarmy commanded.
June 10: Indefinite curfew was imposed on Bannu and adjoining areas.
The military then opened up a non-stop barrage of heavy artillery on
the villages of the Jenikhel tribes who border the North
Waziristan-Bannu border and are supportive of the Taliban.
June 11. The heavy artillery shelling of the Jenikhel tribes continued
non-stop and was coordinated with Pak helicoper gunship attacks on
By last reports, more than 100 tribesmen had been killed and more than
200 wounded in the bombardment.
South Waziristan: Pakistan military positions in three areas of
South Waziristan came under attack by Taliban from Baitullah Mehsud's
mujahideen. Numerous Pak troops and Taliban were killed. The attacks
were beaten back.
Swat, Lower Dir and Buner: New fighting is reported from various
parts of these districts which Gen. Athar Abbas had declared were under
military control. In Buner, local Taliban have blown up two bridges to
impede Pak troop movements.
U.S. and Pak seem to be involved in joint special operations in
the areas occupied by Pak troops. In lower Dir, an explosion, probably
from a drone, destroyed a mosque in a remote village. Government agents
quickly spread the rumor that it had been done by the Taliban. Angry
villagers burned the homes of 8 local Taliban and killed 3 Taliban
before they realized that they had been tricked into thinking that the
Taliban would destroy a mosque in their own constituency.[The "mosque
attack" story was quickly distributed all over the world by the Zionist
media being fed by Pak military propaganda. NPR, a zionist radio network
all over the U.S., carried the report although it was Sunday.]
In a second incident, in SWAT, two Islamic scholars from Maulana Sufi
Muhammad's movement were arrested by Pak troops. On the way, the troop
convoy was attacked by Taliban. The two scholars were killed in Pak
custody and then the military claimed they had been killed by
Taliban. [Both the murdered scholars supported the Taliban.] Taliban
spokesman Muslim Khan in Swat called the media to say that Paks had
killed the scholars to please Holbrook, Jewish envoy of the U.S., who
was touring Pakistan. Muslim Khan said they would be avenged.
