Post a New Topic


Original post made by Jag Singh, Duveneck/St. Francis, on Oct 31, 2006

A new book, Der Krieg im Dunkeln (War in the Dark) by Udo Ulfkotte, formerly a correspondent for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, casts a disturbing light on Israel’s worldwide covert operations. These shadowy organizations engage in terrorist activities targeting violence on Muslims and conduct violent acts masquerading as Muslims to tarnish their image. Ulfkotte claims that Israel’s covert operator, Metsada, engages in sabotage and ‘false’ terrorist attacks and assassinations and the LOP (Lohamah Psichlogit) in psychological warfare. Ulfkotte further claims that agents provocateurs were recruited to stir up violence in the Muslim Banlieus of Paris and other cities in order to portray Muslims as hoodlums and terrorists. Even more disturbing is Ulfkotte’s contention that Israeli intelligence is engaged extensively in covert operations in the U.S. Several days ago, Yechezkel Wells, a 21-year old dual U.S.-Israeli citizen, was found guilty of phoning in a false bomb threat on a Jet Blue flight on August 26 to Long Beach, California, Airport Emergency Services from a pay phone. Although Wells pleaded guilty, it is doubtful whether he will serve time for his criminal behavior. If history is any guide, Wells will simply be deported to Israel where he will be freed to continue serving his covert paymasters. I urge readers to write to their elected representatives and demand an immediate investigation to the sinister activities of these covert operations designed to compromise our security and stir up hatred against Muslim communities throughout the world.

I assume from the title and author this book was written in german. Have you read this book, Jag? Can you read German, Jag? or is this another of your one sided attacks on Israel, that have become a familiar occurence in the pages of the Palo Alto newspapers and on this forum.
Let's look at your post--you write that the author claims and makes contentions regarding Israel's actions. What proof is there? what prooff do you and the author have to support these allegations?
What is really amusing and once again shines a light on your one-sided bias is the fact that you rail against Israel trying to "stir up hatred against Muslim communities throughout the world", yet you fail to even mention the almost daily occurences in the Arab press and from the mosques throughout the Middle East of attempts by Muslims to stir up hatred against Israel and the Jews.

Let me ask you this, Jag (though I am sure I will not get an answer, since your M.O. is to lob your bombs of hatred against the jews and then retreat into your cocoon of anti-semtism)--why do you hate Israel and the Jews so much???

Really, Jag, do you think anyone that reads this forum actually takes your writings seriously?

AFter further investigation I have found that the majority of Jag's original post is a cut and paste job from a website called bills itself as " All There is To Know about Zionism".
Here is a link to that review that jag copied for his post:

Web Link

or you can Google the name of the book and the link will come up on top.

Regardless of the source (and I think the source says alot about Jag and his thoughts vis a vis Jews and Israel), there is the issue of Jag not citing that his post has been copied from someone else's writings.
Back when I was in school they called that plagarism.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
