David Harris and his cronies at the AJC have been working the same charade for years: when the rest of the world focuses on Israeli intransigence, Harris shifts attention to Egypt or Libya or Iran.

Paul Balles / STAFF WRITER

The incredible arrogance of David Harris of the American Jewish Committee (AJC) would pass as a sick joke if his readers didn’t take his pronouncements so seriously.

In his latest, AJC welcomed the UN Human Rights Council’s decision to appoint a special rapporteur to investigate human rights in Iran.

Harris lauds “AJC, which has called for stronger UN action on Iran, especially since the stolen presidential elections in 2009…”

What do the 2009 presidential elections have to do with human rights violations alleged by Harris?

Who does Harris think he is to decide that the presidential elections of any country other than Israel were stolen?

Harris “applauded the US administration’s role in working with other governments to approve the measure by a vote of 22 to 7, with 14 abstentions. The resolution was co-sponsored by the U.S. and Sweden.

When was the last time that the UN Security Council or General Assembly or Human Rights Council passed a resolution calling for a human rights investigation of Palestinians in Israel?

“We salute Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.S. Ambassador Eileen Donahoe in Geneva for helping spearhead this landmark action by the UN Human Rights Council,” hails Harris.

It’s difficult to imagine how Hillary Clinton or Ambassador Donahoe sleep at night after US indulgence of Israel’s gross violations of human rights for years.

It’s a relatively recent role for women to be selectively sympathetic toward brutes and bullies. Margaret Thatcher, Madelyn Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Susan Rice, seem to have excessive testosterone acting like unbridled male thugs.

Praising the Human Rights Council for yielding to Israeli/American wishes to divert attention from Israel’s gross violations, Harris gloats:

“Following the recent suspension of Libya’s membership in the Human Rights Council, this vote on Iran conveys another strong message that the Geneva-based body is beginning to wake up from its lethargy and look seriously at some significant violators of human rights, such as Libya and Iran.”

This praise, coming from a cheerleader for a country that prides itself on murdering American peace activist Rachel Corrie with a tractor!

This celebration of human rights from a country that happily rolls its Murkava battle tanks toward kids whose defensive weapons are stones!

This arrogance from an American voice for Israel that purposely withheld intelligence of the terrorist bombing of the US marine barracks in Lebanon killing 241 Americans.

This sweeping under the carpet of the continuing human rights violations against 1,657,155 million in Gaza, capped off by Operation Cast Lead.

This pretence at ignoring the totally unwarranted destruction of Lebanon’s infrastructure with constant airstrikes in 2006.

A year ago, a number of countries walked out of the Human Rights Council when Iran had the audacity to criticize Israel.

About this latest sick gratuity to Israel, Harris boasts “American leadership has been critical to this change.”

Then Harris sneers, “The resolution on Iran marked the first time since the Council was created in 2006 that it has appointed an investigator with a mandate to monitor and report on a specific country.”

It couldn’t possibly escape Harris’s notice that the Human Rights Council should have appointed such an investigator to monitor and report on Israel years ago.

Harris and his cronies at the AJC have been working the same charade for years: when the rest of the world focuses on Israeli intransigence, Harris shifts attention to Egypt or Libya or Iran.

When Palestinians are starving or being murdered in Gaza, Harris writes about Hamas or Hezbollah as terrorist clients of Iran.

The US should appoint Harris propaganda minister, a title last held by his precursor Herr Joseph Goebbels.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
