Systematic Palestinian Isolation: What Is Missing from the Omar, Tlaib Story

This is the story of Palestinian isolation by Israel that we must not allow to die out, long after the news cycle covering the two Congresswomen’s story move on beyond Omar, Tlaib and Israeli transgressions.

Israel’s decision to bar two United States Democratic Representatives, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, from entering Israel and visiting Palestine has further exposed the belligerent, racist nature of the Israeli government.

But our understanding of the Israeli decision, and the massive controversy and discussion it generated, should not stop there. Palestinians, who have been at the receiving end of racist Israeli laws, will continue to endure separation, isolation and travel restrictions long after the two Congresswomen’s story dies down.

A news feature published by the British Guardian newspaper last June told the story of Palestinian children from Gaza who die alone in Makassed Hospital in Jerusalem.

Ever since Israel imposed near-complete isolation on the Gaza Strip in 2007, thousands of Palestinian patients requiring urgent medical care which is available in Palestinian East Jerusalem or elsewhere in the West Bank faced options, all of them painful. As a result, many died at home, while others waited for months, if not years, to be granted permission to leave the besieged Strip.

The Guardian reported on 56 Gaza babies who were brought to the Makassed Hospital, alas without any family accompanying them. Six of these babies died alone.

The Israeli rights group, Gisha, puts this sad reality in numbers. When the Beit Hanoun (Erez) Crossing between Gaza and Israel is not completely shut down, only 100 Gazans are allowed to cross into Israel (mostly on their way to the West Bank) per day. Before the breakout of the Second Palestinian Intifada, the Uprising of 2000, “the monthly average number of entries to Israel from Gaza by Palestinians was more than half a million.”

One can only imagine the impact of such a massive reduction on the Palestinian community in the Strip in terms of work, health, education and social life.

This goes well beyond Gaza. Indeed, if there is one consistent policy that has governed Israel’s relationship with Palestinians since the establishment of Israel on the ruins of Palestinian towns and villages in 1948, it is that of separation, siege and physical restrictions.

While the establishment of Israel resulted in the massive influx of Palestinian refugees who are now numbered in the millions and are still denied the right to even visit their own homeland, those who remained in Palestine were detained in small, cut off spaces, governed by an inhumane matrix of control that only grows more sophisticated with time.

Immediately after the establishment of Israel, Palestinian Christian and Muslim communities that were not ethnically cleansed by Zionist militias during the war endured years of isolation under the so-called Defense (Emergency) Regulations. The movement of Palestinians in these areas were governed by military law and the permit system.

Following the 1967 occupation of the remaining 22 percent of historic Palestine, the emergency law was also applied to East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza. In fact, in the period between 1967 and 1972, all of the occupied territories were declared a “closed military area” by the Israeli army.

In the period between 1972 and 1991, Palestinian laborers were allowed entry to Israeli only to serve as Israel’s cheap workforce. Hundreds of thousands of impoverished, desperate, though often well-educated Palestinians, faced the inevitable option of enduring humiliating work conditions in Israel in order to sustain their families. But even that route was closed following the First Intifada of 1987 particularly after the Iraq war in 1991. Total closure was once more imposed on all Palestinians throughout the country.

The Oslo Agreement, which was put into effect in 1994 formalized the military permit system. Oslo also divided the West Bank into three Zones, A, B, C and with the latter two (comprising nearly 83 percent of the total size of the West Bank) falling largely under total Israeli control. This ushered in yet another horrific reality as it isolated Palestinians within the West Bank from one another.

Occupied East Jerusalem also fell into the same matrix of Israeli control. After 1967, Palestinian Jerusalemites were classified into those living in area J1 – Palestinians with blue cards living in areas annexed by Israel after the war and incorporated into the boundaries of the Israeli Jerusalem municipality; and J2- Palestinians residing outside the municipality area. Regardless, both communities were denied “fundamental residency rights to adequate housing and freedom of movement and their rights to health, work, (and) education,” wrote Fadwa Allabadi and Tareq Hardan in the Institute for Palestinian Studies.

The so-called ‘Separation Wall’, which Israel began building in June 2002, did not separate between Palestinians and Israel, for that has already been realized through numerous laws and restrictions that are as old as the Israeli state itself. Instead, the wall created yet more restrictions for Palestinians, who are now left isolated in Apartheid South Africa-style ‘Bantustans’. With hundreds of permanent and “flying” military checkpoints dotting the West Bank, Israel’s separation strategy was transformed from isolating all Palestinians at once, into individualized confinement that is aimed at destroying any sense of Palestinian socio-economic cohesion and continuity.

Moreover, the Israeli military “installed iron gates at the entrances to the vast majority of West Bank villages, allowing it to isolate them within minutes and with minimal personnel,” according to Israeli rights group, B’Tselem research.

It does not end here, of course. In March 2017, the Israeli parliament (Knesset) approved an amendment to the law that would deny entry to foreign nationals who “knowingly issued a public call to boycott the state of Israel.” The “Boycott law” was rooted in a 2011 bill and an Israeli Supreme Court decision (upholding the legal argument in the bill) in 2015.

According to the Israeli website, Globes, in 2018, almost 19,000 visitors to Israel were turned away at the country’s various entry points, compared to only 1,870 in 2011. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib will now be added to that dismal statistic.

Every Palestinian, anywhere, is subjected to these restrictions. While some are denied the right to visit their families, others are dying in isolation in besieged areas, in “closed military zones”, while separated from one another by massive walls and numerous military checkpoints.

This is the story of Palestinian isolation by Israel that we must not allow to die out, long after the news cycle covering the two Congresswomen’s story move on beyond Omar, Tlaib and Israeli transgressions.

How meditation is a tool used to improve mental health?

Written By Guest Writer Mary Jones, 

 

For thousands of centuries, meditation has become a vital part of human life. This art of self-reception is a bounty for both body and mind.

While meditation has many forms to it, its ultimate goal routes to the path of inner peace and relaxation. This concept, in turn, paves the way for improving mental health and stability.

We are living in a world filled with modern lifestyle and less space for navigation. Meditation is a beneficial tool to help mould our being from the inside. 

There is a lot more to meditation than that meets the eye.

With its amazing benefits and miraculous healing powers, meditation improves mental health.

Of all its benefits, we have picked a few topics on how meditation improves mental health.

 

A Powerful Strategy to Keep Anxiety at Bay (H2)

Stress and anxiety are unpredictable emotions that combat everyday activities and natural well-being. Sometimes, too much anxiety can pave the way for illness and disease and shorten one’s life. 

If you don’t get rid of anxiety, it builds up like a block causing a myriad of health problems. 

Meditation is always essential to keep the mind free of all unwanted thoughts and stress. 

A few minutes of meditation helps ease the mind of many, especially the young generation. 

Meditation not only paves the way for a relaxation of body and mind, but it improves the psychological balance.

 

Meditation Tones the Mind (H2)

Modern lifestyle has become a major setback to an array of mental stress and psychological problems. This drawback has pushed certain people to rely on regular medication and drugs. But such individuals do not understand that the mind cannot heal by mere medication. 

Regular meditation and a balanced lifestyle help us to tone our mind. This approach helps in becoming a better problem solver with creative ideas.

Meditation deals with a variety of mental disorders and mood swings. Regular meditation on a daily routine boosts self-confidence and emotional stability.

 

A Powerful Reflective Tool (H2)

Imagine the fresh showers of rain clearing a dusty road! Meditation is something quite similar to this concept. It offers you a new approach and perception towards life. Regular meditation helps clear the mind from negative thoughts.

Whenever you feel low or filled with mixed thoughts, spare some time alone and meditate. You will feel the energy immerse into your subconscious mind. 

Meditation not only helps you to reflect on who you are, but it also makes you realize that you are more than what you think. 

It is one of the most powerful tools that helps you unmask your true, amazing self!

 

Meditation Helps You to Stay in the Present (H2)

Human life is a vivid amalgamation of emotions and thoughts. In a rush of a busy life, we often travel far and beyond our reality. Instead of us humans controlling our emotions, we pave the way for emotions to take charge of us! 

Inevitable setbacks from the past or awaited hopes on future hold us down and cornered from every angle.  Meditation helps us overcome the quarrel between our mind and emotions. 

In the end, we are able to focus on the present moment rather than oscillating with the past or the future.

 

Fights Degenerative Mental Disorders (H2)

We all know the fact that too much of anything is good for nothing. It applies to emotions as well, especially negative ones. 

For example, we all get angry, and it is an emotion portraying a short period of refusal. But if it is beyond a certain level, it becomes a disorder! 

With progress in time and psychological changes, there can be an adverse effect on mental health. 

Several studies suggest that meditation helps shield the brain against degenerative mental disorders. 

A few minutes of meditation a day is one of the best ideas to maintain a healthy mentality.

 

Helps You Fight Back Depression (H2)

We all have experienced depression in some part of our lives. It is an unavoidable feeling where we hate even to see ourselves in the mirror. 

While certain people take their time to come out of it, there are some who make depression a part of their life.

Depression not only evades our peace of mind, but it also kills the thought of moving on in life.

Meditation has helped many people fight depression and release their mind and thoughts. 

According to various experts, it is one of the most powerful tools to overcome depression. Whether we are broken for some reason or emotionally hurt, a few minutes of meditation would help in reflecting ourselves. 

 

When to Start Meditating? (H3)

Image Source: https://pixabay.com/photos/yoga-outdoor-woman-pose-young-2176668/

 

It is a known fact that green tea and hot water are early morning dietary routines to flush out toxins from our body. But what about our mind!

Meditation is the key to every question based on mind and emotions!

For best results to ease your mind and improve mental health, start meditating early in the morning. 

When we wake up in the morning, our mind is full of energy. As time passes by, we stuff our head with every kind of emotions, be it of the past, present, or future! 

So the ideal time to kick start your meditation would be the moment you rise early from bed. 

Choose a comfortable place that is spacious and airy. You can also opt to spend some time of self-relaxation in your garden or lawn. With few routines every day, you will get the grip of it. 

Remember, meditation is an exercise of the mind. You have to stabilize your thoughts and focus and only focus on improving your mental health.

The aromatic breeze and the chirping of the birds should revive your mind with positive energy. 

And do not think of negative aspects while meditating. Just concentrate and breathe fresh air while your mind rejuvenates itself. 

Make meditation a habit to feel the positive vibes of improved mental health and stability!

A Beginner’s Guide to Buying CBD

By Aashay

Cannabidiol has become immensely popular across the world, in the recent past. In previous years, it was used as an effective self-medication for Dravet syndrome in children. As of now, it is now used to treat wide range of medical conditions and lifestyle diseases. The cannabinoid CBD, a non-psychoactive isomer of the more infamous tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is available in a growing number of administration modes, but the most commonly known is CBD oil. There are currently dozens, if not hundreds, of producers and sellers of CBD oils active in the market, and their number is increasing exponentially.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is essentially a concentrated solvent extract made from cannabis flowers or leaves that is dissolved in edible oil such as sunflower, hemp, or olive oil.
Increasingly, CBD oil is also being promoted as a prophylactic treatment in order to prevent certain diseases from developing at all. The argument used is that the human endocannabinoid system is involved in basic life functions such as appetite, immune response, reproduction, and pain management. It is reasoned that the presence of CBD prevents from being overly activated, thereby protecting the nervous and immune systems from everyday stress. Furthermore, CBD is known to be a reasonably potent antioxidant, which further helps to protect against stressful influences

How can you differentiate between a Real and Fake CBD products?

Variety is great, but it can be pretty overwhelming. Even if you’ve used CBD before, it’s hard to tell which product of which brand is right and safe for you. The following are a few quick ways to help differentiate a fake CBD product from a real one.

• Fake CBD Oil May Use Misleading Labels. Be aware of companies that use “buzzwords” because it’s often used as a tactic to evoke emotion but offers little actual value.

• CBD Oil Third-Party Testing is a Must. Simply put, if there are no third-party lab tests, don’t buy it.

• Determine the CBD Oil Origin Source and Production Standards

• Make Contact with the Company. The best way to get the answers you’re looking for is to ask. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, there should be a phone number or email you can reach out to for answers.

• Research Reviews. In the world of online digital sales, customer reviews are king. User testimonials over the website and search engines give you an insight into how a company works with its targeted audience.

How Can You Identify High-Quality CBD Oil?

CBD is an extract taken from cannabis plants. It is commonly extracted from agricultural hemp. Without making the person feel high, it offers abundant of health benefits. This all together makes it more versatile and less controversial to both users and the community.
But, at the same time, quality matters: unlike high grade CBD oil, the low grade CBD oil might not offer the same benefits because of a variety of factors, and it could even potentially contain harmful toxins.

Here are five ways to identify top quality CBD oil:

1. Before purchasing any CBD oil, research the vendor’s production methods. It is recommended to select the CBD processed through ethanol and/or supercritical CO2 extraction.

2. Look into where the CBD brand sources their hemp from. If available, try to find US grown hemp, as US farmers are required to get certified by state departments of agriculture.

3. The optimal level of THC present in CBD oils should not exceed more than 0.3%, so make sure that you check the labels or ask for lab results for the CBD oil before purchasing.

4. Check the labels on the product to determine if the manufacturer uses the whole plant in their products. Some brands use the term Whole Plant while others might use Full Spectrum.

5. Check for third-party lab results when buying quality CBD. A reputable brand of CBD oil should always have recent lab results available.

Proper labeling of CBD

In late 2017 Johns Hopkins University released a study on the quality of CBD oil. The study analyzed 84 CBD oil products sold by 31 companies and found that 70% of CBD oil products sold online were mislabeled.

Of the 84 CBD oil products only 30% of the products contained the proper CBD concentration labelled by the manufacturer, within a 10% margin of error.

Mislabeling is a major concern in the hemp industry. Mislabeling occurs for two reasons:

1. There is no standardized lab testing for CBD; however, organizations are working hard to establish standards.

The other larger reason is because,

2. There is no regulatory agency ensuring the quality and accuracy of product testing and labeling (organizations are working hard on this too).

Clarity is the only solution for the CBD market. Third-party testing is becoming more and more common. In fact, some of the industry’s largest producers have a reputation for putting their products through testing. Before ever bringing their products to market, they will ensure the potency and quality of their isolate, crude, oil, etc.

For example, Verified Life Cycle was established to counter the mislabeling issue. Verified Life Cycle (VLC) is a third-party verification unit created by Think Hempy Thoughts.

In the verification process, manufacturers are required to submit their batch records process together with their recall procedures. This process is time consuming especially for the ones who have stepped into the process of manufacturing.

However, it is essential for companies to safeguard their customers from poor quality products, for the sake of the consumer and the industry.

What should I look for when buying CBD?

Make sure before purchasing that these potential toxic elements are not present in the CBD oil:

1. The presence of propylene in CBD oil depends on the kind of preparation method that is used.

2. Contaminants, such as pesticides and synthetic cannabinoids, may be deliberately added to the CBD oil to increase yield, weight, or potency.

3. During the various stages of manufacture, storage, and distribution, unhygienic practices may lead to unwanted and unintentional contaminants, such as heavy metals, molds, bacteria, aflatoxins that may be very detrimental to health.

4. In many cases, the solvents used during the manufacturing process are harmful or toxic. Naptha and petroleum ether are harmful and flammable, and some solvents, such as hexane and benzene are, considered neurotoxic.

All in all, you need to be sure that your product was not cheaply manufactured.

Difference between CBD Oils for Humans and Dogs

The simple answer is that the CBD oil itself is typically no different, except in dosages, but the FDA does have different package labeling requirements for human supplements versus pet ones. Also, CBD oil for dogs often has flavouring to it, like bacon, to make it more appealing to the pooches and also use cod liver oil, which helps enhance the effects in canines.

Likewise for humans, CBD is non-psychoactive for dogs, but can go far in treating arthritic inflammation in those that are affected. It will relax the dog (or human), especially if made using high CBD cannabis versus hemp, but not to the point of passing out, unless you really give them a high dose. Consult a professional before titrating.

The One-Eye Sign: Its Origins and Occult Meaning

Why are there so many pictures of celebrities hiding one eye? It is definitely not random. In fact, the One-Eye sign has a profound meaning and proves an important fact about the powers that be. This article looks at the origins and the meaning of the unescapable One-Eye sign.

By Vigilant Citizen,

Why are there so many pictures of celebrities hiding one eye? It is definitely not random. In fact, the One-Eye sign has a profound meaning and proves an important fact about the powers that be. This article looks at the origins and the meaning of the unescapable One-Eye sign.

The One-Eye sign is one of the most recurrent themes on The Vigilant Citizen because it is also one of the most recurrent themes in mass media. Throughout the years, this site has highlighted hundreds upon hundreds of clear instances where major artists, models, celebrities, politicians and public figures posed with one eye hidden.

The sign is everywhere: In music videos, on magazine covers, on movie posters, in advertisement and so forth. The sheer number of these pictures is simply staggering. Considering these facts, the repeated occurrence of the One-Eye sign simply cannot be the result of coincidence. Indeed, there is a clear effort to have this sign displayed everywhere.

So, why is this sign everywhere and what does it mean? Here’s a look at the timeless and transcendental symbol of the Eye.

A Turkish “nazar” amulet used to repel “evil eye” curses. Similar charms can be found in Portugal, Brazil, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Albania, Algeria, Tunisia, Lebanon, Turkey, Greece, Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, parts of North India, Palestine, Morocco, southern Spain, Italy, Malta, Romania, the Balkans, the Levant, Afghanistan, Syria, and Mexico.

The human eye has been used as a symbol since the dawn of civilization. It can be found across all ages and cultures. Carl Jung identified the eye as a classic “archetypal symbol” – an image that is embedded in humanity’s “collective unconscious”. According to his theory, humans instinctively respond to archetypal symbols and unconsciously assign to them a specific meaning.

“Eyes are probably the most important symbolic sensory organ. They can represent clairvoyance, omniscience, and/or a gateway into the soul. Other qualities that eyes are commonly associated with are: intelligence, light, vigilance, moral conscience, and truth. Looking someone in the eye is a western custom of honesty.

“In this way covering of the eyes, by wearing a helmet, sunglasses, etc. can mean mystery, not seeing the complete truth, or deceit. The eye often means judgment and authority.” – Dictionnary of Symbolism, University of Michigan

In nearly all cultures, the symbol of the eye is associated with spiritual concepts such as divinity (the Eye of Providence), spiritual illumination (the Third Eye) or magic (the evil eye).

“The eye symbolizes seeing and light, and therefore consciousness itself. The eye is the part of us that beholds the universe and sees our place in it. It is knowledge, awareness and wisdom. The eye takes in light, the pure energy of the universe, and presents it to the inner spirit. It is the gateway, indeed the very union, between the self and the cosmos.”  – Peter Patrick Barreda, Archetype of Wholeness – Jung and the Mandala

In the Bible, Jesus referred to the eye as the “lamp of the body”.

“The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!” – Matthew 6:22-23

The symbol of the eye always had a mystical and spiritual dimension assigned to it. As the popular saying goes: Eyes are the windows to the soul. For this reason, the symbol of the eye is particularly important in occult circles and Mystery schools.

Since the dawn of civilization, the symbol of the eye and the sun (aka the “eye in the sky”) are associated with divinity. In Ancient Egypt, the symbols of the Wadjet, the Eye of Horus and the Eye of Ra are all associated with the solar god.

A classic depiction of the Egyptian Eye of Ra and Eye of Horus

“The early sun god was named Horus. When Ra took over the title of sun god, he was also known as “Ra-Horakhty or Ra, who is Horus of the 2 horizons.”

“It was in a battle with Set that Horus lost the use of one eye. Thoth restored the eye, and this was when Horus was also named Wadjet.” – Ancient Pages, Eye Of Horus – Powerful, Ancient Egyptian Symbol With Deep Meaning

Because the symbol of the eye is associated with the sun – a proxy of divinity – the esoteric eye has a peculiar quality: It is “all-seeing”.

The archetype of the all-seeing one-eyed sun god can also be found in other ancient cultures. In Persia, Ahura Mazda was considered to be the creator of Earth, the heavens, and humankind, as well as the source of all goodness and happiness on earth. He was said to have “the sun for an eye”.

“The supreme god Ahura Mazda also has one Eye, or else it is said that ‘with his eyes, the sun, moon and stars, he sees everything.” – Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

In Norse mythology, Odin was known as the ‘Allfather’ (or father of the gods). He was represented as an old man with one eye.

An ancient depiction of Odin

Odin is yet another representation of a one-eyed creator sun god.

“The Supreme, invisible Creator of all things was called All-Father. His regent in Nature was Odin, the one-eyed god. The Norwegians regarded Balder the Beautiful as a solar deity, and Odin is often connected with the celestial orb, especially because of his one eye.” – Ibid.

Considering the fact that Western occultism was greatly influenced by the esoteric teachings of the civilizations above, the symbol of the All-Seeing Eye made its way into orders such as the Rosicrucians, the Illuminati, and the Freemasons.

Masonic symbols under the All-Seeing Eye

“Albert Mackey writes that the All Seeing Eye is “an important symbol of the Supreme Being, borrowed by the Freemasons from the nations of antiquity.” The All Seeing Eye is a symbol representing the watchful gaze of God. It reminds us that every thought and action is to be recorded by the Grand Architect of the Universe, and that we are bound to our obligations in spirit as well as in blood.” – James E Frey, 32°, Midnight Freemasons

Due to the heavy influence of Freemasonry on the historical events of the past centuries, the symbol of the All-Seeing Eye was included on prominent documents such as the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States and the Declaration of Human Rights.

Left: The reverse of the Great Seal of the United States. Right: The Declaration of Human Rights.

“If any one doubts the presence of Masonic and occult influences at the time the Great Seal was designed, he should give due consideration to the comments of Professor Charles Eliot Norton of Harvard, who wrote concerning the unfinished pyramid and the All-Seeing Eye which adorned the reverse of the seal, as follows:

“The device adopted by Congress is practically incapable of effective treatment; it can hardly (however artistically treated by the designer) look otherwise than as a dull emblem of a Masonic fraternity.” – Hall, op. cit.

The symbol of the eye was also adopted by several powerful secret societies such as the O.T.O.

The seal of the O.T.O (Ordo Templi Orientis)

That being said, does the symbol of the All-Seeing Eye actually represent God – as in the Judeo-Christian God? Well, this is where things get … occult (occult means hidden). The prominent American Freemason Albert Pike wrote that the true meaning of occult symbols is only revealed to high-level initiates.

“It is in its antique symbols and their occult meaning that the true secrets of Freemasonry consist. But these have no value if we see nothing in the symbols of the blue lodge beyond the imbecile pretenses of interpretations of them contained in our monitors.

“People have overlooked the truth that the symbols of antiquity were not used to reveal but to conceal.  Each symbol is an enigma to be solved, and not a lesson to be read. How can the intelligent Mason fail to see that the blue degrees are but preparatory, to enlist and band together the rank and file Masonic army for purposes undisclosed to them, that they are the lesser mysteries in which the symbols are used to conceal the truth?” – Albert Pike, Legenda and Readings of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

Manly P. Hall, another prominent Freemason wrote that the All-Seeing Eye esoterically represents the ultimate goal of occultism: To attain divinity through one’s own means. This is done through the activation of the pineal gland – the Third Eye.

“Operative Masonry, in the fullest meaning of that term, signifies the process by which the Eye of Horus is opened. In the human brain there is a tiny gland called the pineal body, which is the sacred eye of the ancients, and corresponds to the third eye of the Cyclops.” – Hall, Op. Cit.

In Islamic eschatology, the end-times figure named Al-Mas?? ad-Dajjal (“the false messiah, liar, the deceiver”) is said to be blind in his right eye. By pretending to be the Messiah, the Dajjal would deceive and take over the world. For these reasons, the Dajjal bears great similarities with the Antichrist in Christianity.

The coming of the Dajjal would be preceded by several signs such as: People will stop offering the prayers; dishonesty will be the way of life; falsehood will become a virtue; people will mortgage their faith for worldly gain; usury and bribery will become legitimate; there will be acute famine at the time; there will be no shame amongst people; many people will worship Satan; there will be no respect for elderly people and people will start killing each other without any reason.

Considering the fact that the world today is ruled by what we call the “occult elite” (because of its ties with occult orders), it is no surprise that its main symbol is found everywhere.

However, it is all done in a deceitful way. Today’s entertainment industry thrives on control, manipulation, and distortion. It is also all about debasing the masses from everything that is true, pure and healthy. Today, the symbol of the All-Seeing Eye is now about a select group of people oppressing, monitoring and controlling the world population.

Right: The Declaration of Human Rights.

While the All-Seeing Eye is esoterically associated with the opening of the Third Eye to attain spiritual illumination, the One-Eye sign made by celebrities is about the exact opposite: Hiding and incapacitating  an eye. The symbolism of this gesture is powerful.

When you hide one eye, you effectively block half of your vision. In symbolic terms, you become half-blind to the truth. By hiding one eye, celebrities symbolically “sacrifice” a vital part of their being for temporary material gain. And, since eyes are the “windows to the soul”, this gesture symbolizes the partial or total loss of one’s soul.

The One-Eye sign is also an important symbol in the occult elite’s secret obsession: Monarch mind control. Known by many as project MKULTRA, mind control aims to turn humans into slaves through abuse, trauma, and programming. There is an actual culture revolving around Monarch mind control, complete with its own universe of symbols. And the One-Eye sign is part of it.

This painting is called The Naming and relates to the naming of an alter persona.

 

This painting named I-Test also visually describes the trauma and programming of an MK slave.

The omnipresence of the One-Eye sign in mass media also serves another purpose: It proves that all outlets of mass media are owned by a very small, elite group.

Indeed, in order to have the same exact sign appear consistently and repeatedly across all media platforms and across the world, there needs to be a centralized source of power that forcibly makes this happen.

Think about the amount of money, power, and influence that is required to have all of these celebrities perform this specific gesture in videos and photoshoots. Now, ponder on the amount money, power, and influence that is required to have this specific sign plastered across magazine covers, movie posters, music videos and anything else that might reach the eyes of the masses.

In short, this symbol represents the global elite and all of its agenda: The debasing of the human psyche, the promotion of satanism, the normalization mind control, the normalization of transhumanism, the blurring of genders and more. The ultimate goal: Straying the masses as far away as possible from Truth, health, and balance.

The symbol of the eye is an archetype that transcends time and space. Perhaps because humans instinctually respond to gazing eyes, there is something about that symbol that is jarring yet fascinating.

While, in ancient times, the symbol of the All-Seeing Eye was often equated with the sun god, it gradually became a symbol of the power of the secret societies that shaped history in the last centuries.

Nowadays, the entertainment industry revels in the twisting and corruption of powerful symbols in the pursuit of its debasing agenda. The omnipresence of the One-Eye sign now symbolizes the omnipresence of the occult elite. It is them saying: “Look at who we control”.

That being said, there is a silver lining here. The One-Eye sign is a convenient way of identifying media to avoid because it is most likely drenched in the occult elite’s debasing agenda.

Benjamin Fulford 9/9/19 Report: U.S. War College study shows 95-100% probability of Khazarian mafia defeat

By Benjamin Fulford,

The international military and legal campaign against the Khazarian mafia is “95-100% likely to succeed,” according to probability models tested by the U.S. War College, say MI6 and Pentagon sources.  This week’s anniversary of 9/11 is followed by a Friday the 13th and is a good time to push hard for their inevitable final defeat, the sources say.

The key to the Khazarians’ defeat was handed over to the military by a group of Swiss mathematicians who analyzed 43,000 transnational corporations and traced their control to a group of 700 individuals, mostly bankers, MI6 sources say.

This is “a Ponzi scheme called the Global Network of Corporate Control (GNCC), which is in an interlocking or bowtie corporate structure,” the sources say.  Military forces do their best work when they have a clear target, and this list of 700 individuals gave them that target, Pentagon sources confirm.  The U.S. War College ran a series of “probability models” to come up with a plan that ensures “the Global Coalition for the Rule of Law” (i.e., The People) will ultimately prevail, the sources say.

https://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1107/1107.5728v2.pdf

This doesn’t mean the war is over yet, since the Khazarian mob is literally fighting for survival as it stirs up trouble in the U.S., UK, Hong Kong, Iran, etc.  However, these are just futile rear-guard efforts by a defeated, albeit extremely rich crime gang.

One key date that is coming up is the September 17th Israeli election, where top satanic leader Benjamin Netanyahu and his fellow gangsters are using every dirty trick in the book to stay in power.  The Jews must now either confront and defeat their satanist rulers or else face a combined Turkish/Iranian/U.S./Russian/Arabian coalition that will force them to remove their criminal leaders.

It’s not going to be an easy fight.  Even the Mossad-linked information/disinformation site Debka is saying Netanyahu is planning to start a war in order to postpone the election and stay in power.
https://www.debka.com/netanyahu-to-hamas-via-egypt-idf-is-set-for-gaza-war-even-if-it-means-delaying-the-election/

Furthermore, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz is reporting that Netanyahu is taking a page from the book of the U.S. Democrats’ “Russian” election-stealing scam to try to claim that “the Arabs” stole the election.
https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/elections/.premium-netanyahu-deploys-trump-s-election-fraud-canard-to-devastating-effect-1.7810906

By the way, the “Russia did it” scammers in the U.S. might like this photo sent to me by the Russians of Senior Lieutenant Olga Orlif of the Soviet Army—Melania Trump’s grandmother.  Orlif was a Yugoslavian fighting with the Soviets against Nazi Germany, the Russian sources say.


In any case, another key date is the October 31st Brexit deadline in the UK.  Here, judging from the bizarre antics of politicians, the Khazarians have called in every bribery and blackmail chip they have.  Just one example:  opposition Labour Party shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry said on TV she would seek the “best deal possible” with the EU, then campaign against it.
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-09-08/labours-ridiculous-position-seek-deal-eu-then-campaign-against-it

The Parliamentarians “lead the country into a state of chaos and panic when the decision is already made.  In or out does not matter two hoots—in the end the EU will no longer exist,” MI6 sources promise.  Staying in the EU would mean a loss of sovereignty and “is in effect High Treason and nothing else,” they say.  “The Monarchy and senior generals of the British Army are all aligned to Sovereignty” and not the compromised politicians, they add.  Public opinion in the UK is also against the politicians, despite the propaganda campaign by the press, who are agents of the mega-conglomerate controlled by the 700 bankers, they note.

It is also interesting that while the Western corporate propaganda press rants on about places like Israel, Hong Kong, and the UK, they are completely ignoring a major and violent revolution that is unfolding in …

… Papua, New Guinea, where Australian and Indonesian authorities are now facing a choice between losing control or carrying out large-scale massacres, CIA sources say.

“In Sorong, a prison was set ablaze and more than 250 prisoners escaped.  Thousands rallied in Jayapura in Timika near the world’s largest goldmine Grasberg, while a market was set on fire at FakFak,” says the article below.

https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asia/indonesia-urges-calm-in-papua-after-two-weeks-of-protests-11857826#cxrecs_s

Indonesian police sources say they are under a gag order from headquarters that says, “No talking or making videos of the chaos going on now in Papua.  Disregarding this order will have severe penalties, including jail time.”  The people want independence from Indonesia, local sources say.

If the world does not pay attention, there is a real risk of a replay of the East Timor situation of the 1970’s, where Indonesian authorities killed between 100,000 and 300,000 in an effort to stop an independence movement there.  Also at stake is control over some of the world’s biggest gold mines, gas reserves, and other natural resources.

Due north of Papua, New Guinea in Hong Kong, the situation is calming down despite the best efforts of the U.S. State Department and the CIA.  Here is what a CIA source had to report on the situation in Hong Kong:

“Some CIA staff have been caught red-handed, photographed and recorded making payments of HK$3000 per day for those up front in the street and HK$300 for airport sit-ins.”  Now, “five of the top organizers ran to the U.S.  They got a special arrangement to change planes via Taiwan,” the source also reports.

“The Chinese secret police have infiltrated the protesters and are ‘picking up’ demonstrators.  They are being taken to undisclosed locations outside HK.  Will they be seen again?” the source wonders.

The battle in Hong Kong is just one front of a de facto hybrid war now taking place between China and the U.S.  CIA sources say the next move will involve an attempt to shut down Hong Kong’s banking system.

Also, “In another blow to Zionist Hollywood and Big Tech, the 8,000-mile fiber optic cable from Los Angeles to Hong Kong sponsored by Google and Facebook may be blocked by U.S. President Donald Trump in his trade war with China,” Pentagon sources report.

Trump is additionally pushing France, the UK, Germany, and Japan to allow Russia to rejoin the G8, as a part of a campaign to woo Russia away from China, the sources say.  They are also thinking of accepting Russian President Vladimir Putin’s offer to sell Russian hypersonic missiles to the U.S. as a part of this effort, they say.  Buying Russian hypersonics would “force the military-industrial complex to innovate, compete, and stop raping U.S. taxpayers,” the Pentagon sources add.

Meanwhile back in the Middle East, the U.S. is preparing for a summit between Trump and Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei by arranging an end to Saudi Arabia’s war against Iran’s Houthi allies in Yemen, they note.  Here, they say “the Yemen war is over because of advanced Houthi drones and missiles from Iran.”  As a result, “Saudi Arabia is being forced to sue for peace and may have to pay reparations,” they say.

The simmering conflict in the Ukraine also appears to be ending.  “The administration of Ukraine’s President Vladimir Zelensky has demonstrated a sensible approach and readiness for compromises, unlike his predecessors, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Saturday,” according to the official Tass Russian News Agency.

Perhaps a peace deal in the Ukraine will make it possible for many Ashkenazi Jews to return to their real homeland, which is the Ukraine and not Israel.

Finally this week, we note that the Khazarian-controlled financial system is becoming increasingly unstable and could collapse unexpectedly any moment.  The graph below shows how the stock market continues to defy financial gravity and rise, even as funds continue to flee from it.
https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/equity%20flows%20vs%20market.png?itok=KyhRU0Kj

The next chart shows how this is made possible by corporations using central bank money, much of it borrowed at negative interest rates, to buy back their own shares.
https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/total%20flows%20buyback.jpg?itok=yqR4URZ3

In other words, the 700 or so Khazarian mobsters who own the Western central banks are printing money to lend to themselves so that they can buy more of the corporations they already own.  Meanwhile, the real economy shows multiple signs of collapsing.  That looks like a death spiral to me.

It also looks like the Khazarian mob is trying to exaggerate the damage caused by Hurricane Dorian in order scam the insurance companies which have been shunning their rigged stock market.
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-09-02/dorian-could-cause-40-billion-insured-losses-ubs-analysts-warn

They did this with 9/11, Fukushima, Haiti, and elsewhere.  Hopefully, this time the insurers will wise up and only pay the real hurricane victims.

By the way, Tokyo, where I live, was hit by a typhoon last night, but at least as far as my neighborhood was concerned it was just a regular storm that did no real damage.

When Americans Fell for the 9/11 Deception They Lost Their Country

By Paul Craig Roberts,

Today is the 18th anniversary of 9/11, an event that has turned a once free America into a domestic police state and an international warmonger during the 21st century.  America’s reputation has been shattered along with the Constitution, international law, and seven nations in whole or part.  The massive crimes against the Bill of Rights and the population of seven nations are the direct consequence of 9/11.

Global Research has assembled some articles that indicate that not only Americans but the people of the world have been massively deceived about that event.

Over the years I have reported the findings of scientists, engineers, and architects that indicate that the official story is false.  I had an open mind for two reasons.  One is that having been an engineering student, I could tell the difference from a building falling down from asymmetrical structural damage and a building blowing up.  The other is that having been involved in policy issues in Washington for a quarter century I knew that such a humiliating defeat suffered by the world’s only superpower at the hands of a few Muslim terrorists would have brought instant demands from the White House, Congress, and media for investigation into how every aspect of the American national security state failed simultaneously on one morning.

Instead the White House resisted the 9/11 families demands for an investigation for one year and never delivered a forensic investigation.  Instead, the country was given a 9/11 Commission Report that was merely the government’s official story of what happened.  No heads rolled.  No one was fired or even reprimanded.  To hold no one accountable for such a massive failure and humiliating defeat is not a believable response if the official 9/11 story is true.

It is much easier for government to deceive people in a democracy where people assume everything is above board than in a dictatorship where they know it is not….

If you want to learn of the 4-year study by an international team of civil engineers that concludes that the official account of World Trade Center Building 7’s destruction is false, you have to go to Tehran to Press TV.

The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, CNN, MSNBC, National Public Radia, BBC, and the rest of the media whores are not going to tell you.  The report was released a week ago, and not a mention in the presstitute media.

It’s Been 18 Years Since 9/11. It’s Time to End the Wars.

3,000 some poems disguised as people
On an almost too perfect day
Must be more than pawns
In some asshole’s passion play
So now it’s your job
And it’s my job
To make it that way
—Ani DiFranco, “Self Evident”
 
 
The September 11, 2001, terror attacks are old enough to vote now, old enough to enlist in the military and go fight in one of the ongoing wars spawned by that woeful day. “Never Forget,” went the enforcer’s refrain: Grind in the horror, amplify the fear, profit from the rage, and take no lessons from the sorrow. That is the biography of the last 18 years, and the method has taken deep root.
 
 
Some $6 trillion has been spent to date on the so-called war on terror. That money did not disappear like your lap does when you stand up. It now belongs to a very small group of people neither you nor I will ever meet: fossil fuel magnates, media titans, weapons manufacturers and the like. The austerity measures peddled by Republicans as they gleefully passed trillion-dollar tax cuts are but signposts on this road to perdition, one we were already on for decades before the Towers fell. After the attacks, we flipped on the blinkers and slid over into the fast lane, and now, here we are.
 
 
“This timeline sucks” is an oft-heard online refrain. The quip is a nod toward quantum physics and the idea of infinite possible timelines existing simultaneously, each new one spawned by a decision or event. This timeline has seen the stolen presidential election of 2000, which begat the inauguration of George W. Bush, which begat 9/11, which begat the unfulfilled promise of Barack Obama, which begat President Donald Trump and the current accelerating calamity we share together, whether we all know it or not.
 
 
Such a gruesome farce is “Never Forget,” the slogan that appeared everywhere immediately after the attacks. What is it we are expected to remember? For those who survived that day and those who bore witness, the sacrifices of the first responders are seared in memory with little need for goaded recall. The tears which still come because of that day are bottled nightly and lovingly preserved at the memorial in New York City, yet one does not need a pilgrimage to locate that grief. It is in all of us; 18 years old, yet still fresh if we allow it to slip past the barriers we have erected within so as to cope and move on in what ways we can. Everyone has a 9/11 story, because that story never ended.
 
 
The powers that be told us to “Never Forget” for one overarching reason: to feed the fires of permanent war (and the ocean of money that comes with it). “Never Forget” meant “always be afraid, and always be angry,” because political opportunism and the profit motive are furnaces ever in need of feeding, and wrath makes for powerful fuel.
 
That “Never Forget” unleashed a tidal wave of anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant racism, as well as militant alarmism, is merely the price of doing business for those on the lucrative end of the affair. For the rest of us, it is funerals for friends who fell far away, neighbors disappeared by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, racist massacres at Walmart, and concentration camps filled with caged children at the southern border. The target of wrath is always on the move, but there always must be a target. An unsettled populace is easily controlled, and even more easily plundered.
 
The powers that be told us to “Never Forget” for one overarching reason: to feed the fires of permanent war.
 
 
Like an arrow fired at the sun on 9/12/2001, our inevitable trajectory downward to “President Trump” or someone just like him has been as ruthless as gravity itself. George W. Bush was a bloody appetizer, Barack Obama a lethal holding pattern. Like a corpse flower, the forces deliberately unleashed by the few against the many after that day have come to full, stinking blossom in the brigand’s morality cultivated by the current Oval Office occupant.
 
 
The orchestrated racism in the aftermath of September 11 made it possible for Trump adviser and vivid fascist Stephen Miller to lance the boil of his own bigotry and pour it into the bloodstream of an already infected country. Without that day, Miller would be just another racist on the conservative media dole, ranting into the echo chamber where hatred is the coin of the realm and the water fountains are still labeled “Whites Only.” Because of that day, Miller and those like him hold positions of incredible power.
 
The children in cages, the concentration camps, the anti-Muslim travel bans, the violence of Trump-inspired white nationalists armed with weapons of war, the active malice directed at all migrants not of European descent, the mortal peril baked into interactions between people of color and the white police state, is where the vicious manipulation of “Never Forget” has delivered us. All this, along with the permanent state of war that motivates these benighted imperatives, is the birthright of everyone now living beneath that hole in the sky over Lower Manhattan. It belongs to us all, whether we want it or not.
 
September 11 did not create these things, to be sure, but the racist opportunists in politics and the media made them policy with deliberation and intent, and Donald Trump has taken them as his battle standard. If it was not him, it would be someone like him, because arrows fired at the sun always fall to Earth.
 
Like an arrow fired at the sun on 9/12/2001, our inevitable trajectory downward to “President Trump” or someone just like him has been as ruthless as gravity itself.
 
 
There was a chance, 18 years and one day ago, to take stock of the decisions that had led to such unspeakable catastrophe. 9/11 did not happen in a vacuum. It was, in the words of songwriter Ani DiFranco, “the day that America / Fell to its knees / After strutting around for a century / Without saying thank you / Or please.”The violent, racist tantrum that has been our shared aftermath from that day has made everything bad about this country worse by orders of magnitude. The day inspired cruelty and cowardice in equal measure at the highest levels of government, and took rabid racism fully off the leash. It made Donald Trump possible, and if it continues much longer, it may well lead to a seamlessly dystopian future where the Trump era is viewed as “the good old days.”
 
9/11 turns 18 today, and it’s high time to grow up. See this day for what it is, what it has been transformed into, what was foisted upon us in our most vulnerable moment. This country wears September 11 like a yoke, racism and war are the fields it plows, and it is enough already. It’s time to break free of this deliberately corrupted and cruel edifice of manipulated memory, and make the promise of peace our memorial in its place. This would, at last, be a proper tribute, both to the dead and to the living.
