Background: The United States-Israeli Bund
There’s not too much that needs to be said about this unholy alliance – The Obama Government’s complete subservience to Israel is world-renowed.
One current example of Israel’s ‘coming out’, as the ruler of the U.S. Government, is the current furore over a comment made by Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defence, Chuck Hagel. He had the audacity to suggest that he was a U.S. Senator and not a Jewish Senator. In response, forty Senators, who obviously consider themselves servants of Israel, blocked Hagel’s nomination, with a filibuster, in disgust at this misrepresentation of their own allegiances.
The American public can be in no doubt about which country’s needs are to be prioritised in the U.S.A. The question remains as to what the American people intend to do about it. Get misty-eyed about their stylish President, hand over their tax dollars for the war on Iran and Israeli military assistance and continue to fiddle whilst Democracy burns, I suppose. Oh and I suppose they’ll also be buying lots of body bags for the American sons and daughters who will die for the state of Israel in their next unholy war.
The Oxford Union Speech debacle
It seems it took an epic battle for Assange to be able to speak at Oxford University. All kinds of forces appear to have been aligned against him, including misguided feminists and the usual array of selfish attention-seekers attempting to use conflict with Assange as a ticket to personal fame.
The day before Assange’s speech, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., John Bolton, was invited to address the Union. The choice of Bolton to speak the day before Assange, was a telling one. WikiLeaks had already indicated they were in possession of the script for “The Fifth Estate” (previously known as “The Man who sold the World”). It would have been clear that Assange was going to challenge the film’s misinformation about Iran’s imaginary nuclear program, as well as defend against the film’s defamatory implication that WikiLeaks was somehow associated with said program.
John Bolton is a Conservative Republican, who is involved with the “Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs”. After the U.N. General Assembly voted to upgrade the Observer status of the Palestinian delegation, in November 2012, Bolton blamed Obama for even allowing the vote to take place. He stated that the U.S. should have threatened to withhold U.N. membership dues if the vote proceeded. Bolton stated, “Palestine is not a state. That’s a fact. And when the U.N. engages in this kind of activity, it just shows a real lack of administration commitment to stop it from happening.” That’s right, John, how dare anyone, apart from the U.S. Government, have a say in anything that happens in the rest of the world.
Predictably, in his speech, Bolton accused Iran of every dirty deed imaginable, including being the “central banker of terrorism” – a title long ago earned by the United States and their master, Israel, the murderers of Palestinian children and deployers of assassination brigades.
Bolton’s blatantly anti-Iranian, war-flame fanning propaganda speech at Oxford, was accompanied by recorded applause, including whoops more appropriate to an Oscar acceptance speech. The applause abruptly and unnaturally ceases so as not to interfere with the audibility of Bolton’s stories about the evil Iranian empire. The student’s hostile questions were also edited out. The only thing missing, to complete the picture, was a couple of jokes with some canned-laughter. Here is a link to Craig Murray’s blog on the whole Oxford-Bolton propaganda mind-job:
In his subsequent address to Oxford, Julian Assange informed the audience about the Dreamworks film’s anti-Iranian misinformation and insidious implications re: WikiLeaks, pointing out specific sections of the script. He also spoke further about media-manipulation by corporate and government interests. Here is link to a section of Assange’s address, where he discusses these issues:
The University’s Board of Trustees attempted to block the transmission of Assange’s address, on “legal” grounds. The edited version of the Assange speech, with U.S. friendly back-drop and dodgy manipulated sound was eventually released – sans fake canned applause. Craig Murray indicates that he, himself, was part of a battle to allow even this edited transmission to occur. Oxford University had deleted Assange’s preferred back-drop, which depicted the ‘Collateral Murder’ video, providing some dodgy reason pertaining to copyright. Who raised said issue of legal copyright? Presumably Oxford must have been in contact with someone from the U.S. Government, in relation to this issue and had made a dirty deal to accommodate them.
Presumably this is also what happened in relation to arrangements for John Bolton to speak at the University. A pertinent question might be “What the hell was Bolton doing there in the first place?” If it was to add counter-balance to the discourse, that should be done with speakers who are at least presenting a view of the true facts. Clearly Bolton was there for the purpose of manipulating the fragile, egg-shell minds of the students of Oxford to make them into good little Iran-hating drones for the United States of Israel. The effect was also a preemptive strike on Assange, who would have been expected to support the truth of the Iran Nuclear Program and counter the Dreamworks film’s propaganda.
It is difficult to understand how Oxford University could stand by and allow such a propaganda exercise to happen in a U.K. seat of learning. Is the U.S. Government now the Ministry for Propaganda at Oxford University?
I would suggest that it’s time for the students of Oxford and other British Universities, to start analysing the forces behind the information they are being force-fed through their own institutions and the media. It is time for them to start asking some pertinent questions about the sovereignty of their educational institutions and their country.
