Banksters of the world united! jz
In the shadows, between 2000-2008, the OTC derivatives market grew from $95.2 trillion to $672.6 trillion, notational value. When the dark market deals started to go sour, the impact was felt around the world. Larry Summers, the man who was featured on the cover of Time Magazine as part of the "Committee to Save the World" with Robert Rubin and Alan Greenspan in 1999, instead helped bring it to its knees.

A California man is alleging that police officers in California threw him in jail, beat him and stripped him of his clothes before releasing him with no charges two days later.
David Scott Byrket told the New York Daily News he feared for his life as members of the Kern County Sheriff’s Department reportedly “tortured” him for hours.
“They told me they were going to kill me,” Bryket said. “There were multiple officers involved, it was scary.”

13-09-05 FAQ on Rabin's assassination, death of Chief Clerk Shmaryahu Cohen, and the end of Civil Society in Israel...

The assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhaq Rabin (1995) and the suspicious death of Chief Clerk of the Supreme Court Shmaryahu Cohen (2002) are key events in collapse of Civil Society in Israel.


Q1: According to one of the alternative narratives for Rabin's assassination, the confessed assassin only shot blanks. Why would the Shabak prefer such plot?

A1: I don't like to speculate. I prefer to present some basic facts that make no sense in view of the official narrative. However, if you think about it, you can figure out a number of reasons why the Blank, Blank, Blank scheme could be the one of choice.

One important lesson is that regardless of corruption of the court, the mere conduct of a sort of public trial defeated the schemes, because there was no way to present an official narrative that was consistent with the facts, and in the trial, the powers that be had to resort to blatantly falsified medical records.

Later, in 1999, the "Raviv Document" was published. It is the protocol of a meeting from 1995 of the Attorney General, the Shabak, and other high officias, where the Shabak tried to convince the Attonrey General that there was no need to try Avishai Raviv (the undercover Shanak agent, leader of the extreme Right cell, and provocateur) at all , for "lack of public interest".

Obviously, the Shabak knew even before the opening of the trial, that no matter how they try to stage such show trial, they would not be able to provide a reasonable. convincing narrative.

Some of the interesting questions according to the alternative narrative, which nobody knows the answers to (Yigal Amir offered to provide them in court on December 5, 1995, but Judge Dan Arbel prevented that from happening) are:
a) How did the Shabak convince Yigal Amir to go through such a convoluted scheme, serve time for a crime he did not commit, and most important - shut up forever?
b) How could the Shabak convince Yigal Amir that he would be spared the standard procedure and not be killed on the spot? Killing him would have saved the Shabak the trial, which botched it all.
c) Why was one of the bodyguards killed a couple of weeks after the assassination?

For me, some of the most interesting questions pertain to understanding Rabin's frame of mind in the weeks and months that preceded the assassination, and his relationship with the Shabak. 

In 1995, prior to the assassination, Bibi and others were running for months a campaign, which was described by media as "incitement for murder of Rabin", even before the actual assassination. 

Rabin was no dummy. He was a former Chief of Staff. He was also the direct authority over the Shabak, and he had to be in deep mistrust of them. Some documents were also published that show that he was specifically outraged at the lack of control of the actions of Avishai Raviv, who was involved in various criminal violent acts with impunity.

Most interesting was a public rally about a month prior to the assassination, where Bibi was the keynote speaker. He managed to incite the crowd, who was chanting "Death to Rabin". 

TV reporting from the rally also presented posters of Rabin in SS uniform. Later, it turned out that Avishai Raviv was the one, who presented the posters to media.
How did Rabin then permit the Shabak to conduct on his body "Blank, Blank, Blank" exercises? According to standard military rules, it is forhibited to conduct such exercises.

At the bottom line:
1) The case of the assassination of Rabin in 1995 and the suspicious death of the Supreme Court Clerk Shmaryahu Cohen in 2002, combined with the large-scale fraud in the electronic systems of the Israeli courts ever since that date, are prime examples that regimes that are presented as Civil Societies (what the folks call "Democracy") , are often none of it at all.
2) Under such circumstances, the formal structure of government has nothing to do with the true distribution of power.
3) The replacement of Civil Society by calandestine regimes is often justified or conducted under the guise of "national security" and peace and war issues. However, the bottom line of the stealing of the State is almost always the same - robbing of the People.

The above is of course true also for the United States. One major difference is that in a smaller nation, it is almost impossible to keep secrets. Secession of some states is the only way to make the US federal gov accountable.

Q2: What was the primary goal of the "Gang", and what are the most important outcomes of the collapse of Civil Society in Israel?

A2: Common wisdom ties the assassination of Prime Minister Rabin to opposition to the Oslo Peace Accords and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, which he led. From such perspective, the major outcome of the assassination was indefinite stalling of the peace process.However, probably the most pronounced change in Israel over the past two decades was in the socio-economic arena: While the economy was growing at a healthy pace by standard macro parameters, poverty and homelessness soared and housing became unaffordable for working people. The economy was brought under the control of a handful of “tycoons” with tight connections to major political figures, and visible corruption of government at all levels (including the courts) has reached unprecedented levels.
According to a recent international report, income and asset distribution in Israel, a developed nation today, is “inconsistent with a nation under democratic government”.
Such changes are particularly striking, since Israel was under control of socialist governments during the first 30 years of its independence (1947-1977), and during those years also absorbed masses of penniless refugees.
The socio-economic changes in Israel over the past two decades of course mimic similar changes in the United States. In fact, during the past two decades, alignment of the State of Israel with the United States has reached an all time high, from the military, general government, and corporate/banking perspectives.
In short: The State of Israel has been fully synchronized with the United States in ushering in the Robber Baron Revival Era!

Q3: How do you fix the collapse of Civil Society in Israel?

A3: While the demise of Civil Society may be quick, when the People are not vigilant, the way back may take decades, and struggles that are similar to the original quest for independence of such nations.

For example:
All current members of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel and the Chief Clerks of the Supreme Courtt and each of the District Courts should be considered part of the "Gang".

To wit:
1) You cannot be half-brained, surely not a qualified justice, without realizing that ALL current records of the Supreem Court of the State of Israel are void, simulated court records. They are all published with the disclaimer "Subject to editing and phrasing changes", and since the suspicious death of Chief Clerk Shmaryahu Cohen, none of them is certified. Prior to his death, all of them were published with his certification.
2) Current Chief Justice Asher Grunis and current "Chief Clerk" of the Israeli Supreme Court (former deputy to Shmaryahu Cohen) should be deemed a key figures in the "Gang":
* The appointment record of current "Chief Clerk" of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel Sarah LIfschitz was never published in the official register.
* Sarah Lifschitz herself, who responded to other correspondence with me, refuses to answer at all regarding her appointment record.
* The office of Adminstration of Courts responded on my Freedom of Information request for the record that it is exempt as a "record of internal deliberations".
* Current Chief Justice Asher Grunis, whose office promptly answered on other correspondence with me, stalled on responding on my request for the appointment record of Sarah Lifschitz, and eventually answeered that she was appointed "accorsding to the manner in which persons of such rank are appoited".

The same is of course true of the Chief Clerks of each and every District Court, Court of Appeals, and Supreme Court of the United States.
