THE LOGIC OF CHRIST

September 30, 2014

A CONFUSED SISTER

What I’m basically saying is what you said here: “God is Truth”, no doubt. And, 2+2= has to be 4 and not 3. But 2+7-5 = is also 4 too. Both ways are Truth, one is shorter and the other is longer. No one way is the only correct way.

A LESS CONFUSED MISERABLE SINNER

Logic needs to be approached carefully, because its rules are merciless and mandatory.

You can very well choose both ways to reach “4”, in fact infinite ways are able to get there, but you MUST get there, to “4”, not “5” nor “11” nor any other of the countless fancies devisable by the vanity of the human mind.

The Truth is one and is Christ! I came to the Truth on a different way than, say, Dimitri or Ioannis, but we all got there. Almost any of us had his own way to get there, to Christ, but there is only one Truth and your way MUST take you there to be legitimate, to be true.
If your way lead you elsewhere, to Buddha, Sai Baba, Darwin or whatever else, then in your case it’s 2+3=5 and 2+7-1=8; and no matter what combination (way) you use the outcome is never the right answer, the Truth. It’s another thing.
In short, every way is good provided that the outcome is ALWAYS the same, “4”, because ONE is the Truth. “4” is equal only to “4”!
If you get anything else, well, you have a “non-4”.
If that’s okay for you, it’s fine for us too.
The Lord did never force anyone.

CHRISTIAN IS AS CHRISTIAN DOES

The deeds without the Faith are useless!
He who does not gather with the Lord, disperse.
The Faith without deeds is dead!
If you have Faith, you’ll do the deeds by consequence. If you don’t, your faith is a pretension.

What Christians do?
First of all, they understand that since the Ascension of the Lord, Christ is present in this world only through His Bride, the Church, the only vessel of His Holy Mysteries, the only place where the Holy Spirit operates, His Mystic Body, and every member of the Church is part of that Body.
Therefore, outside the Church there are NO Christians. If you want to join Christ here, you join the Church. Period!

They also understand that there is only ONE Church, with no branches. You can go out from the Body of Christ, but you cannot take anything (but your apostasy) with you!
This Church is the One Who has not changed one iota from the Faith received from the Apostles and in the Tradition of the Fathers. No innovations, no additions or subtractions, but a few adjustments to the ever changing social environment and NEVER regarding the dogma.
The Orthodox Church!

All heretics and schismatics and sectarians can maintain the name “christian”, but they are not.
No matter how much unpleasant they may find this, no matter how many good people there are in those heresies and sects, no matter how many of the original teachings they conserve, they are outside the Communion of Christ and there’s no Grace in their sacraments (when they conserve them).
This is a statement of fact and it’s not liable to interpretation.

They are part of the problem and many of them, as in the case of American sects, are a BIG part of the problem!

What Christians do? They live by the Word of God in the Church!
Christianity is the religion of the Incarnation of God. We do not discuss about Christ, we (try to) live Christ.

“If you love Me, keep My Word!”

That means to keep the Commandments, all of them!
We have One God.
We fear nobody else.
We stay clear of any idol.
We sanctify the Repose of the Lord.
We give honor to our fathers and mothers (not the parents, the Father and the Mother!).
We do not kill, if they are not killing us.
We do not break the marriage, not even in thoughts, remembering that MAN and WOMAN He did create them, so that they could be one flesh.
We do not steal, not even when it’s legal.
We do not give false witness, it could be worse than killing.
We do not covet our neighbor’s belonging.

We keep all of them in Spirit, above the letter, in accordance with the teaching of the Lord. We keep them, loving God more than ourselves and our neighbors as ourselves.
We recognize our neighbors in everybody but the progeny of the devil (John 8, 44), but we pray even for them, because men can always repent, until their last breath, and escape a terrifying  lot.

Apart from that, one Holy Hierarch has synthesized the life of a Christian in: Prayers, Worship (Divine Liturgy) and Alms.
St. Seraphim of Sarov would add Fasting: “If he does not fast, no matter what he thinks he is, he is not a Christian.”
I would listen to St. Seraphim, one of the greatest Saints we have.

We fight against every passion and desire of material things. It’s not that we do not enjoy all the good things and beauty with which God has provided His Creation, but we enjoy them without the desire to possess them.
When you want to possess them, you end up possessed by them, and that’s the core of all the hellish torments, after your departure (and even before).

We have a total, unconditional trust in the Lord and His mercy.
We commune as much as possible to the Holy Chalice and the other Sacraments to gain the strength to fulfill the task, because we know that we can nothing on our own.
What we lack, the mercy of the Lord will provide, provided that your efforts are sincere and strenuous.
Never give up, no matter how painfully aware you are of your unworthiness and weakness. A sincere and loving heart in the desire to keep His Word is the only mandatory requirement.
As another great Saint said: “Keep your head in hell, and despair not!”.

The most important thing anyway is that the Faith is not a private matter, the Faith is a public witness!
We cannot stay idle “for fear of the Jews”, as the Apostles after the crucifixion of the Lord. We can bear everything made to us personally, but nothing concerning the Faith. As much as we cannot force anyone, because the Lord never did it, nobody can force us away from the Lord and to stay silent in front of the evil.
We must unceasingly denounce the antichrist, the abominable modern massacre of innocents in the womb of the wretched they would have called “mother”; the ruthless exploitation of the weak and helpless; the tentative of putting depravity and sexual immorality as a social model, made equal to the matrimonial practice of all the millennia; the inverted tolerance of modern societies, where everything is tolerated but Christ.
We must stand against the spiritual desert which the West has become. Western democracy have almost completed the switch to a new political structure: Demonocracy! The Demonocratic Empire is the only outcome possible when you renounce Christ!
And only Christ is the answer….

Werewolves and all the other desperate heroes fighting with the weapons of this world forget (or are unaware of) whom this world belong. This kind of fighting will end up nurturing the enemy. Again, just look at the history of mankind.

Apart from Christ, there’s no hope.
Christians’ weapons are not of this world, their armor is the armor of God.
The enemy has nothing against them.
Christians do not fear death, Christ is risen!
For us, death has been defeated. We fear the Judgment of God, nothing else!

If everybody would live by the Word of God, evil would disappear overnight from Earth.

We stand by the Truth, the Word of God, not by the vain words of men.
Moreover, we do not force anyone, so that we tolerate everybody, even the multitude of non-Christians who keep on pretending to teach us what Christ means and what Christians should do (that is, become non-Christians).

Christians have only one need, live by the Word of Christ, in the Church. That’s not up for discussion, it’s subtracted from any vain human dialectic, not part of any thesis or antithesis, all of them created and controlled by the enemy of mankind.

Therefore, we offer the only real resistance to the enemy, who’s not Caesar but the prince of this world, “the wickedness in the high places”, because we cannot possibly be synthesized by its ruses and snares in the perpetual devilish blob in which men have perpetually ended up, following their fallen minds and all their good intentions. Without Christ, all nobles men and good intentions pave nevertheless the way to hell!

We offer Christ, for you to take back form the prince of this world the only thing you really need: your soul! The disease of mankind is spiritual, not material. Without that disease, the material creation has everything for everybody, because in Christ nobody wants more than he rightfully earns.
Naked you come here, naked you depart (for the Judgement).

We offer Christ, to overcome all fears, to repent, to swallow your pride and to live by the Word of God. If everybody would keep His Word, evil would disappear overnight from Earth.
It will not happen, but it’s not Christ or Christians (and Christian is as Christian does, remember it!) to blame.
It’s non-Christian and nominal christians (a BIG part of the problem) to blame, who will keep on offering one more antithesis, still pretending to know better not only than the devil but also than God, against all evidences provided by millennia of human history.

We find it ludicrous. Do not waste your time.

PREMIATE LA VITA E LE OPERE DEL PROFESSOR DI BELLA

September 30, 2014

Nel magistrale racconto fattone dal figlio Adolfo.

il poeta della scienza

Il libro è stato pubblicato nel 2012 dalla casa editrice Emmeci Edizioni e ripercorre la vita del medico, dall’infanzia siciliana alla grande fama di scienziato acquisita sul campo attraverso studi e ricerche nelle università più prestigiose, fino agli anni del contestato ‘metodo Di Bella’, ideato dal professore per curare i tumori e mai riconosciuto ufficialmente dal Ministero della Salute.
Il libro, che non può prescindere dagli ostacoli incontrati da Di Bella per l’affermazione della sua ricerca, è un documentario della vita di quello che può definirsi un poeta della scienza: amante della cultura e della disciplina, dotato di una grande prontezza di spirito, votato agli affetti e alla famiglia oltre che alla medicina, dal libro esce la figura di un grande uomo prima che di un grande scienziato.
La biografia si basa su documenti, lettere e ricordi trasmessi dallo stesso protagonista ai figli Giuseppe e Adolfo, ed è arricchita da aneddoti che svelano il lato umano, mai nascosto, del professor Di Bella. Adolfo Di Bella abita a Modena e da anni è impegnato, insieme al fratello Giuseppe, nella divulgazione dell’opera del padre Luigi, scomparso a 91 anni dopo aver dedicato la sua vecchiaia a visitare pazienti nel suo studio in via Marianini.

The Elevation of the Venerable and Life-Creating Cross of the Lord

September 27, 2014

Exaltation Cross

18

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

19

For it is written:

20

Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21

For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

22

For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom;

23

but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,

24

but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

ISIS SAUD-BIN-USRAEL

September 24, 2014

Ynet reports this morning on “the operation to hide Steven Sotloff’s Jewish and Israeli background online.”

The articles tells a story of a “worldwide network of friends included over 150 members, speaking 20 different languages, who scanned every post Steven has made on Facebook or Twitter and removed any mentions of his Israeli or Jewish connections.”  I can only think of one Jewish organization that could facilitate such an grand scale operation and it isn’t JVP.

We also learned yesterday that Sotloff spent 3 years at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya. An institute that is linked to the Mossad according to some media sources.

Israeli press comes short of linking Sotloff (one of the “beheaded” “journalists” – ndM) to the Mossad but it produces the necessary evidence that would make such a suggestion into a valid option.”

NOVOROSSIJA – TO BE MINSKED OR NOT TO BE MINSKED?

September 23, 2014

War, Peace and Whatever else   –   The Saker            Versione Italiana

The Arithmetic of Diplomatic Theatre   –   Gleb Bazov    Versione Italiana

The Truce   –   Colonel Cassad       (below the full text)

1. As we wrote before, the trajectory of the line that leads to a certain semblance of “Large Transnistria” is explained by the desire of the Russian Federation to avoid the direct confrontation with the West. And this is exactly the main spring of the negotiating process. It is quite obvious that this “new Transnistria” won’t remain in Ukraine.

2. The future of Novorossia is no more than a bargaining chip here: if they’ll agree in one way, then there will be one future, if they’ll agree in a different way – another future. If they won’t agree altogether – yet another future.
Not much actually depends here on the political leadership of Novorossia, they are in a subordinate position with respect to the current political line of Moscow and they are fully dependent on shipments of the humanitarian aid. However, there is a factor of “armed people”, who have a very negative view of what is happening, but for now their discontent is purely verbal.

3. Regarding the pharisaic cry of “Winter will come, it will be bad” – providing the population in the rear strip is possible even during the ongoing war, thankfully in the DPR and the LPR there are more than enough areas that are completely cleaned from the junta military. The necessity of shipping food and fuel to Krasnodon or Yenakiyevo is not changed in any way by whether there is a war going on somewhere in the Dnieper area. Building life there and driving the junta further back are not mutually exclusive concepts. So, when I hear the argument of “winter is coming”, then I involuntarily doubt the psychiatric well-being of such a person (well, except for the paid characters, who have to translate this BS in the media). If there was a strong desire to save the lives of people (as they tell us), then there were possibilities for this associated with a military intervention in the spring and also along with more expeditious work of the “military surplus store” in the summer. Otherwise, it ends up like this: first they melancholically observed as thousands of people perished and the infrastructure of the life of a couple of millions was destroyed and then they suddenly yelled “winter is coming, time to wrap it up”. Formally this seems to be right, but essentially this is a disgusting joke.

4. The fact that the junta military is retreating from encirclements clearly suggests that there are certain backstage agreements on the separation of territory that is controlled by Novorossia and the junta. Of course the field commanders are strictly against the fact that they are left with a bombarded and defective stump of two regions instead of the desired Novorossia. From this originate the demands in the spirit of “at least drive the junta out of the territory of Donetsk and Lugansk regions”. Meanwhile, the junta is forced to retreat from encirclements in which its military were sitting. At the same time it continues to destroy Donbass infrastructure. Overall, by the last decade of September the beneficial possibility of routing major junta groups that sat in cauldrons and suspicious protrusions was lost. It was exchanged for a “piece of paper that means nothing”.

5. The vindicators of the agreement in the beginning told us that this agreement is a worthless piece of paper, then they told us that Kuchma is a nobody, then that nobody among those who had to sign it actually signed it, and those who signed it had a wrong status. Actually, we see a step-by-step plan on creating of a stump of Novorossia with a certain configuration, which is being implemented to the extent of the abilities of its masters. The role of Kuchma is the role of damper-gasket, in order to soften the effect of the ongoing clusterfuck so that people wouldn’t go nuts when Yatsenyuk, Turchinov, or Poroshenko would sit opposite of Zurabov.
Those who tried to present this piece of paper as something inessential were at best engaged in self-deception. At worst – they simply service a certain line directed at creating a certain informational camouflage around this piece of paper.

6. However, the hopes of being able to buy a respite in escalation of tensions with the West and slow down the roll of sanctions at the price of such an exchange of Novorossia appear delusive even now. The West already effectively saved the junta from a direct military defeat in Donbass. Now, by occupying the dominating positions, it is pushing its variant of solving the issue. Meanwhile, it is not forgetting about Crimea, which is now a convenient hook for introducing absolutely arbitrary sanction packages. Together with a fortifying position in Donbass, this gives the USA a convenient and quite cheap set of instruments for pressuring Russia, which includes the use of the fascist junta that preserved its power in Kiev. Those who counted on the war leading to the next Nuremberg can consider themselves free of their expectations, at least for now. If one of the main sponsors of mass murder is now considered to be a respectable politician “who needs to be saved” in Moscow, then the majority of main sponsors and executors of the bloodbath will definitely avoid the responsibility. However, the characters like Kolomoisky, Korban, Filatov, Lyashko, Semenchenko, Yarosh, and a number of other people may come to harm in the end, including physical harm. Some little guys will of course be designated one way or another. The fascist discontent with one or another aspect of the collusion is inessential – the American puppets have no vote in the questions of global exchanges. In some other conditions they could lose a number of other regions and if Washington would pull certain threads, then no matter how much Lyashko would write in Facebook, the masses would obediently accept such a decision too.

7. Whether this particular collusion will be pushed to the end is not yet a given. In Novorossia itself and in Russia there is a serious opposition to this course, which is why an informational campaign under the banner of “such good and beautiful is this piece of paper that means absolutely nothing” was required. The stupidity or the necessity to serve the line of protecting the commercial interests of the Russian oligarchy, which is under threat, is a quite nutritional soil for translating such view. However, because such a course looks so unpresentable, it is quite hard to implement it using orders – they are afraid of overturning the thread. The frog needs to be boiled slowly, so that people wouldn’t be able to understand how they ended up in a new depressive Transnistria instead of Novorossia. It only remains to wait for the collective decision of the military.

Will they once again get away with the murders?

TAKING BACK THE SCRIPTURE

September 21, 2014
A Talk at Rhodes Conference, 8-12 October 2009, by Israel Shamir          Versione Italiana         Old Testament according to LXX (in English)

They say that at a press-conference before departing from Israel, President George W. Bush was asked: “What impressed you most of all in Israel?” The Texan replied: “The Bible in my room. It was in your tongue! Despite the wars and terrorism, you did not begrudge the effort and translated the Holy Bible into Hebrew in such a short time! That impressed me the most”.

Besides ridiculing proverbial Texan ignorance, this Israeli joke aims to remind us that the Old Testament was written in Hebrew, and every Old Testament book that you find in your hotel room is a translation from the ancient Hebrew text. There is a far-reaching implication: the Jews are the guardians and keepers of a primary sacred text of Christendom. This implication is subliminally or even consciously accepted by the West.

The consequences of this implication go far beyond textual details. India’s Brahmins are guardians of the Vedas, and this brings them influence, money, ministerial positions. Likewise in the West, the Jewish guardians of the Scripture possess by this right such extraordinary influence – totally out-of-sync with their demographic numbers – that can’t be explained in any other way.

Money, clannishness, media ownership – all are frequently mentioned among the reasons for this disproportionate Jewish influence. Here’s the problem, though: This influence is greatest in the US in particular and in the West in general. The Jews of Serbia and Greece, of Turkey and Syria, of India and China are not poor either, and are no less clannish, but they are much less influential. We may propose a different reason, then: the Texan-Israeli joke wouldn’t have been immediately understood in these countries, because for Muslims, for Hindus, for the Chinese as well as for Orthodox Christians, Jews have no sacred function – they are not the guardians of a holy text. Non-Christians have their own scriptures. And for Orthodox Christians, the Old Testament is the Septuagint, the Greek text composed some two hundred years before Christ and one thousand years before the present Jewish Bible (called MT, Masoretic Text) was completed.

Though the schism between the Eastern and the Western churches is usually connected with thefilioquecontroversy, the true bifurcation point between the Christian East and the Christian West is located in their choice of the primary text (aside from the New Testament). Westerners (Catholics and Protestants) use the Old Testament they translated from the Jewish MT; Easterners use the Greek text as the original. This is an extremely important difference. When St Paul said that the opposites are united in Christ, he mentioned man and woman, Jew and Hellene (Galatians 3:28). Indeed, the ideal Jew and Hellene are as opposed to each other as the ideal man and woman, and the Jewish and Hellenic texts are equally opposed to each other. Moreover, translations from either of these texts carry the imprint of the original spirit with them. The Hellenic spirit found its expression in the Septuagint, while the Judaic spirit was expressed in the Masoretic Hebrew text, the MT. Christianity as a whole treads a narrow path between its Judaic and Hellenic tendencies, which are locked in an eternal fight like the Yin and the Yang. Their choice of primary text for the Old Testament caused the Eastern churches to favour the Hellenic, and the Western the Judaic tendency.

Before continuing, a full disclosure: until fairly recently, I was not aware of the problem, and like everybody else, I thought that the Old Testament in every language was a translation from the Hebrew MT original. A few months ago, I visited Moscow where I thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous hospitality of the Muscovites, who can turn every friendly meeting over a couple of vodkas into a Platonic symposium – a banquet of reason and a celebration of the soul. Once, my friend Michael, a Moscow University teacher, told me that a famous Starets wanted to receive me. “Starets,” the Russian equivalent of Greek gerōn, or “elder”, means, in Eastern Orthodoxy, a monastic spiritual leader – a charismatic spiritual guide who can aid others in attaining spiritual progress and success, as the Encyclopaedia Britannica tell us. The Starets is well known in Moscow as a confessor and heart-reader – a man who understands the human soul and its way to salvation. I was immensely touched and flattered by the invitation, for people normally wait months on end to see him and receive his blessing. Though I have met with princes of the Church – with bishops and cardinals, with the monks of Athos and Jerusalem – the elders are the hidden heart of the faith.

We drove out of Moscow to the monastery at four a.m. The road was empty, and there were only a few pilgrims in front of the monastery waiting for the heavy gates to open. This is neither the time nor the place to relate everything that happened at this meeting, but I’ll tell you the most important thing: the Starets told me of his desire to publish the Old Testament in Hebrew, corrected in accordance with the Queen Elizabeth Bible of the Russian Orthodox Church. At first, I was deeply shocked and confused. The Queen Elizabeth Bible (1751), or the QEB, is a translation, and a translation of the Greek translation into the Old Church Slavonic. Wasn’t this rather too daring a project, to correct the original according to a translation? Its scope would eclipse any post-modernist project!

Here another, even fuller disclosure is called for: the idea of translating a translation or even reconstructing the original according to a translation was not totally foreign to me. Translations are not machine-made neutral reproductions; they carry with them the twin loads of the original culture and of the translator’s culture. A translation can be translated. I was aware of this complexity – some years ago I had translated the Odyssey into Russian from the English translations of Lawrence (1932) and Rieu (1946) instead of from the Greek original. (It was published by Aletheia, the Heidegger-inspired St Petersburg publishers of Greek classics in AD 2000). I did it that way in order to convey Jorge Luis Borges’ idea that for the modern reader Joyce’s Ulysses precedes Homer’s Odyssey. The English post-Joyce translations of the Odyssey carried this subliminal message, and I tried to preserve it in my translation into Russian. (More on this in Russian onhttp://www.israelshamir.net/ru/odysseia0.htm )

The longer I considered the words of the Starets, the more sense they made to me. Practically, he was proposing to reconstruct the H70, the lost Hebrew original of the Septuagint, while using the QEB to select between numerous versions. You will see soon why this could begin the reversal of a long-term Judaisation and degradation process, and start the healing of the schism between the West and the East, while at the same time helping the Jews to overcome their hubris and to make peace with the nations. The Jews have translated the Bible into the languages of the nations in order to influence them; the world is indebted to them, and it’s time to pay them back by giving them the true original Hebrew text of the Old Testament, free from censorship and later additions, just as it was read in the days of the Second Temple.

Why will this bookish project influence the real world? Sacred matters influence our world far more than is acceptable to admit in polite society. The dummies believe that all things are done out of pecuniary considerations, but in truth, it is spiritual authority that decides. The world based on the Jewish Bible is not the same as would be a world based on the Greek Bible. Its priorities would be different. Even the texts themselves are different. The Hebrew text used today by Jews (and by tiny communities of Hebrew-speaking Christians), usually called MT (Masoretic text) is not the same text that was read by Christ and His apostles.

If you open the New Testament you’ll see that its references to the Old Testament do not fit. For instance, Matt. 12:21 quotes Isaiah: “in His name will the Gentiles trust”. But if you look up Isaiah 42:4, you’ll see something completely different: “the isles shall wait for his law”. Or (Acts 7:14) Stephen says “seventy-five” souls went down to Egypt with Jacob. But look up your Old Testament (Gen. 46:27; Deut. 10:22) – it says that only seventy people went to Egypt. This does not mean that the translators of King James, or any other translators of the Old Testament, made a mistake. They translated correctly, but from the wrong version, from the MT, while Jesus, His apostles and the New Testament writers in general had read and quoted the Septuagint (LXX) or its Hebrew Source (H70).

The transposition of the MT in place of the Septuagint (LXX) or its Hebrew Source (H70), making it the source for all subsequent Western translations, was the biggest coup the Jewish scholars ever pulled off, and this is the deep-lying cause of Judaisation of the West.

The MT is not particularly old. The oldest complete manuscript of the MT – The Leningrad Codex (1008) – is just over a thousand years old, whilst the LXX is much, much older. The LXX translation was created in a very different era – not only before Christ, but even before the Maccabee revolt. In those days, in the third century BC, the Hellenistic world embraced Palestine, Egypt, Syria and their neighbours. The Jews were integrating well into this Hellenic world, and the long struggle between the two spirits of the ancient faith of Israel had just started:

One was the inward-looking nationalist exclusivist spirit. It claimed private ownership over the Divine Law and exclusive access to the Creator for the Chosen of Israel. A stranger reading the Law was to be executed. A translation of the Bible into Greek was a most serious sin, equivalent to fashioning a golden calf (Ex 32:4), they said.

The other spirit proclaimed universality and led to Christ. The Law and God’s mercy were to be given to all.

In modern terms, these are the spirits of privatisation and nationalisation. The battle was fought in the three seats of ancient wisdom, – Alexandria, Babylon and Jerusalem. Alexandria was the most universalistic, Babylon the most proprietary – Jerusalem was their battleground. In Alexandria, a happy synthesis of Jewish and Hellenic ideas was reached in the translation of Seventy Elders appointed by the High Priest. Thus came the revelation of Israel to the world, preparing the way for Christ.

This translation was nothing short of miraculous. The translators consisted of six from each tribe of Israel, making altogether seventy-two. But the translation is called the Translation of the Seventy because seventy is the numeric value of “Sod” – “Secret” in Hebrew. The Seventy revealed the secret that the exclusivist Jews did not want to share. “A curse upon him who reveals our secret to the Gentiles”, they had written on the floor of the En-Gedi Synagogue. Three times the daughters of Jerusalem were charged “not to stir or awaken love until she pleases” (Song of Songs 3) and this meant “do not disclose our secret to Gentiles”, says the Talmud. Furious at the disclosure of the secret, the exclusivist Jews destroyed the Hebrew Source of the Septuagint. Every single copy perished. In Jerusalem, the nationalist Jews slaughtered the Hellenised proto-Christian Jews in the Maccabean revolt.

With the coming of Christ, the free Judeo-Hellenic spirit once again found its expression which was hated by the nationalists, who embarked on the long road to regaining full control over the Scripture. For hundreds of years, the scribes worked over the Old Testament, taking advantage of its ambiguous consonant readings, until they eventually achieved a text we know today. Its main paradigm was changed: if the old text led to Christ, the personal/universal Saviour, the new text implanted the nationalist concept of a messiah of and for the people of Israel. The nations of the world were to be seen as sinful semi-animals who had no access to God. The name ‘Jews’ stuck with this small fanatic band, while the Hellenised Jews became known as ‘Christians’ and were no longer called ‘Jews’. What was previously a battle between two schools of thought within the Judaic framework, became known as the battle between Judaic and Christian spirits.

The exclusivist Jews could not destroy the Septuagint – there were too many copies extant among non-Jews, and the LXX had been spread around and had succeeded in bringing the nations to Christ. That is why, in their attempt to force the genie of free spirit back into its bottle, the Jews made – one after another – three translations of the Old Testament into Greek to counter the LXX. These translations were made from their proto-Masoretic version, and were quite tendentious. “The Virgin” in the prophecy became “a young woman” in their rendering. Since then, the Jews have made and/or influenced dozens of translations into all languages, while ferociously defending their own Hebrew version, the MT, as the only legitimate primary source.

The young church had not worried overmuch, as they considered Hebrew only a language of the scribes, whilst cultured people used Greek, and the local masses spoke Aramaic. The Church dismissed the Hebrew version as an empty cocoon shed by a beautiful butterfly. LXX was considered the God-inspired text, and on its basis, the New Testament and the works of the Fathers of the Church were created. The Eastern Orthodox Church still prefers the Septuagint to the MT, for the translation of the Seventy Elders had been kept in the Church and by the Church, whereas the Hebrew text had been kept and prepared by anti-Christian forces.

When later Christian scholars became interested in the Old Testament, and compared the Judaic translations with the LXX, they unavoidably resorted to the Jewish Bible, for by that time the Jews had the edited Hebrew manuscripts and tools for their interpretation. As you will recall, the H70, the old Hebrew Source of the Septuagint had been destroyed by the nationalists. A great scholar, Origen, therefore turned to the Jews for advice, and they gave him plenty of advice – only their advice was based on their understanding of their text. Origen decided to improve the Septuagint and emended the LXX according to the Jewish Bible of his day. Some of these emendations made their way into the body of the LXX. Still, the Eastern Church remained rather safe, for the Septuagint remained the official version of the Old Testament for the Greek-speaking East from Constantinople to Alexandria.

But the West did not read Greek. For a long while, the West used the Old Latin translations from the Septuagint; the unity of the Church remained strong, but the translations were weak. Eventually Jerome, a wonderful man and a great scholar, who lived for 34 years in Palestine, decided to correct the Old Latin translations and update them. He even began his work using the Septuagint. Afterwards, though, he followed Origen and turned to the Jews for their advice and interpretation. That was his undoing. He got carried away, and took the fateful step that made the West susceptible to Jewish influence. He parted with LXX and made a brand new translation into Latin – from the Hebrew Bible of his day, the proto-MT. The Jews surely liked the result, but St Augustine was shocked by this deed, and wrote in The City of God:

Although the Jews acknowledge this very learned labour [of Jerome translating the Old Testament from the Hebrew] to be fruitful, while they contend that the Seventy translators have erred in many places, still the churches of Christ judge that no one should be preferred to the authority of [the Seventy], and we ought to believe that the prophetic gift is with [the Seventy].

Contemporaries condemned Jerome, as they noticed that he slowly began to appear more and more Jewish in his positions as he got older and his Jewish friends began to have more influence. One of his former friends, Rufinus, publicly attacked Jerome’s Jewish leanings. Jerome, in response to this work of Rufinus, freely admitted the truth of Rufinus’s claims. Jerome wrote in his own Apology: “There is nothing to blame in my getting the help of a Jew in translating from the Hebrew.” He said that he “did not understand how Jewish interpretations here and there would undermine the faith of Christians.” In this way the Jews managed to plant the seed that would eventually blossom into the acceptance of the Hebrew MT and the virtual abolition of the Greek Septuagint, the authentic Christian Scriptures of Christ and His Apostles.

A reason why Jerome, and Origen before him, accepted the Jewish version was their lack of historical perspective. Perspective in the visual art was discovered in 15 th century, while the historical perspective was not known until the seventeenth century. Until that time, mankind was not aware of the torrent of Time. Don Quixote considered Achilles and Hector to have been knights like himself or like Lancelot. The Crusaders had thought the Muslim mosque of Jerusalem was the Temple of Solomon. For Origen and Jerome, the Old Testament was the Old Testament, and the Jews were the Jews. They did not understand that the Hebrew text of the OT had been changed since the days of Ptolemy II Philadelphus, when the Septuagint was produced. Some of these changes were tendentious, others were due to scribal errors, and still others were the result of misunderstanding.

Orthodox Bible scholar Nicolas Glubokovsky wrote: “The Greek translation reproduced an independent Hebrew textual type that was not severely censored and redacted by rabbinic authorities. That is why LXX and MT do differ profoundly, and their readings of messianic and Christian spirit are at loggerheads”.

Origen and Jerome believed the myth about careful Jewish stewardship of the OT scrolls. They did not know that the Jews had destroyed the manuscripts of other types. The Church had no such practice, and at Jerome’s time there were “tot exemplaria paene quot codices” — as many versions as there are codices. Islam, however, followed the Jewish way, and all differing versions of the Koran were destroyed, so only one type survived.

Jerome planted the seed of Jewish influence, and it had made its major inroads by the Ninth century, when the Vulgate of Jerome became universally accepted. Still, the Old Testament was not widely read – Latin was not universally understood and its influence remained somewhat limited – that is, until the Protestants began to spread their translations of the Old Testament in the vernacular.

The immediate result can be likened to an outbreak of a long-sleeping disease: Previously unheard-of devastation and massacres of civilians during the Thirty Years’ War were influenced by spread of the MT-based vernacular translations, as the nations were infected by its exclusivist nationalist spirit unknown in Europe until that time. The King James Bible was translated from the MT, and the result was amazing: the Brits began to consider themselves a racial new Israel of the flesh, as opposed to the Church being regarded the New Israel of the spirit. They fought the Church, and inflicted the ethnic cleansing prescribed in the book of Joshua on their colonies in the New World. They privatised the commons and turned ordinary British people into paupers. The German Bible translated from the MT turned the Germans into ferocious nationalists and eventually prepared the ground for Hitler. Thus, the MT and its translations had an enormous, even magical, effect. The petard placed in the second century below the walls of the Christian society went off!

The Jews became the collective Merlin behind the throne of a British King Arthur. People dissatisfied with this pre-eminence of the Jews left Christianity for various heathen cults, or became engrossed with the material side of the world. The Judaisation of the West and the degradation of its spirit accelerated.

Today, the translation battle continues as unabatedly and as one-sidedly as ever. The Jews produce dozens of translations into many languages, each more Judaic than the last. Some are openly Jewish, like the Jewish Publication Society Bible, others are crypto-Jewish or “Christian-Zionist”, like the Scofield Reference Bible that reduces the Christian faith to ‘love of Jews and of the Jewish state”. This long, hard work on these corrosive translations is the real Conspiracy of the Elders of Zion.

Russia was the latest to submit to the Judaising influence of the MT translation. Until the late 19 thcentury, the Russians were exposed only to the QEB, the Old Slavonic translation from the Septuagint, and they were pious, religious, loyal to the throne. In the late 19 th century, the pro-British Masonic Bible Society had published a translation of the MT into the Russian vernacular. Very soon, the Jewish influence in Russia began to rise. However, the Russian Church did not accept this Judaised Russian Bible for liturgical purposes, and continues to pray and read from the QEB. This caused a tragic rift between the LXX-orientated Church and MT-induced reading public, a rift that came to forefront with the Revolution.

Let me add yet another disclosure: As an ex-Jew who was received into the Greek Orthodox Church of Jerusalem, I am acutely and personally aware of the continuous struggle of these two spirits in the world. Will the Christian world submit to Judaisation, or will the Jews accept Christ? A few days ago, in a church in the Holy Land, I saw a Bible in Hebrew published by a Christian society for the purpose of bringing the Jews to Christ. However, the Old Testament had been reproduced from the MT. If a Jew sees that Christians actually use the Jewish text prepared by anti-Christian Jewish Rabbis, how can he ever accept the Christian interpretation? The encounter of Jews and Christians should bring Jews to the Church, not lead to Christians leaving the Church in dismay.

Proselytising efforts usually fail because the Jews consider themselves the guardians of the Scripture, while they should be seen as keepers of their own distinct text on a par with the Aramaic Peshitta, the Ethiopian Bible or the Samaritan Torah.

The MT is the petard laid centuries ago under the besieged City of God’s fortifications. The reconstruction of the Hebrew OT according to the LXX would hoist the Jewish sappers on their own petard and relieve the siege. A truly Christian Hebrew Bible has now become a distinct possibility. The H70, the Hebrew Source of the LXX, can be reconstructed on the basis of the textological discoveries of the last hundred years, with the help of the Qumran scrolls. We can do it – we can do it fairly quickly and fairly accurately. We intend to do it, with your help. Such a publication will become the turning point in this millennial struggle. The battle will be carried into the adversary’s territory for the first time since A.D. 128, when Rabbi Akiba’s disciple and convert Aquila produced his Judaic translation of the OT into Greek. If this project had been attempted by the young Church in the second century, the Jewish influence today would be the same as the Samaritan one – negligible. Now it is late, but not too late.

People who doubt the very possibility of reconstructing H70 usually refer to the multiple interpretations and versions within the sea of LXX manuscripts. These objections are not sincere. The Church has an exact answer regarding interpretations and versions, and we can trust Her inspiration. In our dark times of confusion, we can follow the interpretation of the Queen Elizabeth Bible, as I said in the beginning.

Why the Queen Elizabeth Bible, and not any other? Why not the Greek text? The QE Bible was prepared in the least Judaised country of the Christian world, in 18th century Russia, under the royal protection of its least Judaised queen. Queen Elizabeth was asked to permit Jewish traders to enter Russia, as they would bring her much profit, and she replied: “I wish no profit from Christ’s enemies.” Western ideas (and in their guise, Judaic influence) made few inroads then. The QE Bible was edited by churchmen, not by scientists, and edited within the full view of the Church tradition. The QE Bible can be likened to a mammoth unearthed in the frozen tundra – its corpse survived for millennia because it was protected by permafrost. One may dislike permafrost and prefer the tropics, but permafrost is better for preservation. Likewise, one may prefer more Westernised, more Judaised Christianity, but if one wants to discover the pure old Hellene tradition, one can turn to Queen Elizabeth.

The Septuagint has plural interpretations and various versions. The QEB has the great advantage of being a single text based on the LXX and fully approved by the Church. Its language is lucid, its meaning is clear, and this allows us to find and reconstruct its lost Hebrew source. (However, other possible approaches could be considered.) The reconstruction of the Pentateuch can be completed soon – with your help.

THE STRANGE CANONS OF THE SAKER

September 19, 2014

The Saker continues to have (and propagate) a few ideas and confused about the Church. In this last post, he tosses out all the crap relative to the “true orthodox church” (copiously present in a previous post on the theme), but nevertheless promotes the incredible thesis that the Moscow Patriarchate currently gets its canonicity from the secular State. In a burst of humility, he seems to suggest that the Patriarchate should rather get that canonicity from the Saker and a couple of dissatisfied bishops of the Russian diaspora.

Yes, because obviously the Moscow Patriarchate gets its canonicity from the canons of the Church and it’s fully legitimate in all current leadership by regular and canonical choices of its synod of the bishops and TODAY there’s not one of its public teachings and Patriarch’s statements which goes contrary to the Faith as defined in the two formulas of St. Athanasius and St. Vincent, which the Saker quotes at the end of his post. He knows that very well, so it’s vain to try pointing that out to him; he will just toss your comment to the dustbin. He just quote those Saints to confuse the little ones, in its very subtle tentative to compare and put on the same plane the Moscow Patriarchate and the Schismatic Ukrainian churches.

The last post is just articulate nonsense. He jabbers of persecutions without providing facts and does not explain why should be allowed to different jurisdictions to open parishes in the canonical territory of the Moscow Patriarchate. It has been done by the Patriarchate of Istanbul in Estonia and Finland, and you can see the results everyday, as much as in the Ukraine. In Latvia, the tentative was aborted, because of the protection of St. John of Riga. In any case, if you want to get a parish, everywhere, just buy or build your facilities, and nobody will disturb you!

At purpose, the Patriarchate of Istanbul has pursued anti-Church politics since almost a century by now; why nobody questions its canonicity? Why the monks of the Holy Mountain resist the innovations but stay inside the Patriarchate? That is because the Consensus Patrum is exactly the opposite of what the Saker claims, and no profuse quoting of St. Maximos the Confessor (as he did in a previous post, completely out of context) is going to change that! He better should check what St. John Maximovich said, much more relevant and pertinent to the context.

Even if a Patriarch officially and PRESENTLY would proclaim heresies, the canonicity of the Patriarchate is out of question: it’s the Church, until the Church decides otherwise! Moreover, no confusion must be allowed in the Communion of Christ. Whoever cut himself out of the Church for the behavior of someone inside the Church is a schismatic and whatever his justification is, it’s heresy. That’s axiomatic: we BELIEVE in the Church! The Moscow Patriarchate under the Soviet yoke did proclaim heresies and was rightly excluded from the Communion of Christ. In fact, they auto-excluded themselves, personally, but its canonicity has never been in discussion, not even in the darkest hours, and thousands of worthy and suffering priests inside it still continued to be vehicles of Divine Grace for the faithful. Never in the history of Church a single Father (St. Maximos included) has ever confused the Body or a Patriarchate with the heretics who often and *everywhere* have risen to their top. NEVER!

The Moscow Patriarchate today does not teach heresies and it is (as it was) the canonical Church of all the Rus’ historical lands. No amount of the Saker’s babbling (lying, in fact) is going to change that! Its repentance has been slow and is still ongoing, but repentance it was and accepted by God. It is attested by the glorification of all the new Martyrs and Confessors of the Rus’, by the glorification of the Imperial Martyrs, by the renewed Unity of the Church inside and outside the Rus’ lands, by the dozens of icons streaming myrrh, by the reversal of the satanic grip on the Russian society and families, by Liturgy attendance repeatedly in the tens of thousands, by processions of hundreds of miles with hundreds of thousands participants, repeatedly, all around. It’s true that is missing the *placet* of the Saker and of a couple of dissatisfied bishops of the Russian diaspora, but somehow I would put the thing in the *insignificant* category. To accuse the Moscow Patriarchate’s clergy and bishops of “sergianism” today is like accusing St. Peter of apostasy; it’s a symptom of madness!

The Moscow Patriarchate still presents problems, but they will be overcome completing the repentance. That does not mean sending a note of apology to the Saker, but accelerating the transfer of all parishes outside Russia to the ROCOR, with charitable help to provide all the flocks in the West with resident bishops, for example. The ecumenical charade is already dead, it waits only for an official certification. It would be good to provide that certification, anyway.

The Saker is blind, and it’s a real paradox for a falcon. A tragedy, indeed, if you think about the character he has the impudence to hail as the shepherd of the “true orthodox church”. Wolves do not always choose sheep clothes to hide themselves, sometimes you can spot them under falcon’s feathers. Pray for the wolf! Pray for him, because being blind he’s not able to spot himself.

1) The tumor which has killed all the Western Countries, i.e. all media, finance and politicians controlled by alien money and interests, has widespread metastates even inside Russia.

2) The forces behind the internal “revolutionaries”, “liberals”, “democrats”, and their agenda, in 1917, 1991 and today, are EXACTLY the same!

3) It’s ABSOLUTELY VITAL, for Russia AND Novorossija (and the world at large), to preserve and protect Putin, from everything and everybody, Putin included. No alternative is conceivable, not even the thought should be contemplated.

poor-cow

I wholeheartedly agree! He just misses the international aspect of this fight today: the struggle against Demonocracy is common to many people in all the Countries around the world and Russia should take this in due consideration.

STRELKOV1

It has been a month since the moment when I had to resign from my position as the Donetsk Peoples’ Republic (“DPR”) Minister of Defence and the Commander-in-Chief of the Militia. I will not say that this decision was easy for me. Nor were the circumstances, in which it was made, simple. The city of Donetsk and the entire grouping of the DPR armed forces were in an operational encirclement, repulsing with great difficulty the unending attacks of the punitive forces, which were coming from all directions.

Only a few of those in the leadership of the Republic knew that within the next few days significant changes would occur, and that the enemy would be dealt a decisive defeat. I was one of those few, but I could not even hint to my subordinates that soon we would be on the offensive and start to retake the positions occupied by the enemy. It was even more difficult to realize that the liberation of the abandoned towns and settlements of the Donbass region (abandoned pursuant to orders made personally by me) would have to be led by someone other than me. Morally, it was hard to abandon my comrades, leave them, so to speak, in the “early hours before the dawn,” when the death of our common cause seemed to many to be inevitable.

I will not focus on the circumstances that forced me to resign. I will only say that the decision I made then has justified itself and –– on the eve of the offensive – allowed leadership of the armed forces of the DPR to unite in the hands of one and to avoid many of the conflicts, which, akin to leprosy, were eating away at the Republic; and also to ensure a reliable supply of everything necessary to our units and detachments.

On the Precipice of Victory and on the Verge of Defeat

Over the past several weeks the situation at the front in Novorossiya had fundamentally changed. In most areas, the punitive forces had been repulsed after suffering enormous losses, and had gone on the defensive. The prerequisites for the complete liberation of Donbass from the punitive armies and the units of the Kiev authorities had been formed. Snarling, the enemy started to back away to the west under the blows of the DPR army, and panic had seized its forces and its leadership.

But what happened next? Right before our eyes the forces that once almost destroyed the Russian Spring intervened, and thereafter never ceased their attempts to eliminate the People’s Liberation Movement of the Russian people of Novorossiya. There is no villainy, which is beyond these forces that have repeatedly manifested themselves in the modern history of our Fatherland in the most sinister of forms. It was these forces, directed from abroad, that played a decisive role in the destruction of the USSR in 1991, and thereafter throughout the 90’s openly abused the peoples of Russia; organizing an orgy of looting of the enormous Soviet economic and cultural heritage. They staged liberal experiments – monstrous in their consequences – on the remnants of our Motherland; not caring in the slightest about the consequences for the country, which they referred to (and to this day continue to mock) with contemptuous epithets.

Russia Rising from her Knees

This bacchanalia of collapse was accompanied by bloody wars that they provoked, by a savage orgy of rampant crime, by immorality, by propaganda, of the most vile vices that can be imagined, by the destruction of economic independence and national sovereignty. Even after failing in the attempts to deal a final blow to Russia in the early 2000s, these forces did not go away. They secretly continued their destructive work, in the hopes that their hour would come again, and that, in time, they would complete what they had started.

However, dawn of the Russian Spring broke on the horizon; and our country started – not in words, but in reality – to rise from its knees. But as soon as Russia attempted to rethink the results of Gorbachev’s capitulation and to regain the rights and the territories that belonged to it from ancient times – to achieve real independence – the Fifth Column mobilized all the forces available to it. The return of Crimea to Russia shocked it, and the uprising in Novorossiya caused true panic, and forced it to manifest once again its true face.

The web of numerous agents that for many years successfully masqueraded in the sheep’s clothing of “patriots” and “statists”, and under this guise infiltrated the highest echelons of power, and even the entourage of the President of Russia, was raised on alert and thrown into battle. Acting, in reality, against the interests of the country and its people, these traitors nevertheless continue brazenly to assert that they are the President’s “friends”, and to portray their frankly subversive activities and sabotage as the only true measures to strengthen Russian sovereignty. From where, you might ask, do they draw such arrogance and confidence in their own invulnerability? The explanation is extremely simple: all that is valued by the representatives of the Fifth Column (in other words, money and other material resources, as well as families and offspring) has been exported abroad long ago, and its preservation depends entirely on the mercy of their foreign owners.

The Militia as the Guarantor of Novorossiya’s Freedom

Over the five months of the struggle, the Russian people of Novorossiya felt for themselves the full measure of the impact of the “fruits” of these types of subversive activities. At a time when Russian military aid was vital to the virtually unarmed militiamen, and when this assistance could – almost without bloodshed – lead to the liberation of all the Russian-speaking regions, the agents of influence howled in unison about the impossibility and the impermissibility of direct military aid to the rebellion. While the punitive forces were burning people alive in Odessa, bombarding Slavyansk with heavy artillery and urgently forming a combat-capable army, their accomplices, who penetrated the foreign policy leadership of Russia, not only sabotaged any and all military and political assistance to the Militia, but also – in complete understanding with Poroshenko, Turchinov, Akhmetov, Taruta, and other representatives of the Ukrainian oligarchy – worked to split the ranks of the Militia’s leadership; preventing the creation of a unified command, and through joint efforts attempted to lure the President of Russia into the traps laid by them.

The persistence and selflessness of the Militiamen did not allow the punitive forces to quell the uprising before the real help from Russia finally reached its addressee. The Militia commenced its offensive. However, here also the traitors manifested themselves in full measure. To the punitive army that was on the precipice of total defeat they immediately extended a “helping hand” by arranging a ceasefire and attempting, in the course of the negotiations, to surrender literally all the gains made by those who rose up; placing them at the mercy of the Kiev Junta. It is simply impossible to come up with more disgraceful covenants that those currently being discussed in Minsk.

And in the meantime, Kiev is hastily replenishing, rearming and training its army, preparing to continue the genocide of the Russian people of Novorossiya. As a result, we now have absolutely the same situation as in the beginning of our movement, except that we find ourselves in more difficult starting positions. Whereas in April-May Kiev had neither a combat-capable army, nor the support of the population, now the punitive forces have been mobilized and armed to the teeth, and the population of Ukraine, subjected to the massive influence of propaganda that extensively uses techniques of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, has, to a large degree, been zombified and brainwashed, and can no longer distinguish truth from falsehood.

Choose Shame over War, and War Will Follow

During these same months, several rounds of sanctions have been imposed against Russia, and the half-forgotten claims regarding Abkhazia and South Ossetia have already begun to sound from the mouths of senior military officials and diplomats of the Western countries; unconcealed threats are also heard from Islamist militants controlled by the United States. They are preparing to fight Russia for a long time and in earnest. The West and the Fifth Column make virtually no secret of their plans to overthrow President Putin; and subsequently to completely dismantle Russia. Their agents of influence use all means at their disposal to convince the leadership of the country that reconciliation is not only possible, but also singularly necessary. The fact that nothing but Russia’s complete capitulation will appease its enemies is being carefully concealed from the public and, possibly, even from the President.

As a result, all the exceptionally favorable conditions that were available to Russia in the spring remained unrealized, and – on the contrary – we now face a continuously increasing military threat. The responsibility of the Fifth Column for this result is undeniable.

Why is it that our liberals have acted out so implacably and perhaps even suicidally against the President and his political path? What is it that has made them so bold that they openly challenge him and his policies? In my opinion, two main factors are present here, and the first of them is that for the Fifth Column there is no other path but mutiny (still concealed, but only for now). The “Revolution from Above” that was begun by Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin leaves them no chance of political survival, while their foreign owners are not permitting them to simply leave the country for their “earned with back-breaking labour” overseas possessions.

The second factor is even more obvious: having a strong presence in the leadership and considerable financial resources, the traitors expect to seize the power for themselves, and to start –with relish – a new stage of plundering the remnants of the once great country, and the “utilization” of the peoples that inhabit it. But to realize their plans they need to implement many more preliminary measures. They need – in the first place – to deprive President Putin of that incredibly broad popular support which he deservedly received, as a result of foreign and domestic actions in recent years. And what can be more advantageous in this regard, than the betrayal of the Russian people of Novorossiya, followed by the laying of all responsibility therefor on the President himself? After all, the representatives of the Fifth Column hide in his shadow, like hyenas, avoiding any and all publicity.

The path that has already been set out by the enemies is crystal clear to us. The maximum prolongation of the war, accompanied by as much loss of life and hardships for the Russian population on both sides of the border as possible – that is their task. Giving the Militia not even a chance to win, they hope to create an ever more bleeding “ulcer” on the borders of Russia; into which Russia will pour, drop by drop, its resources; and where, as a result of “one step forward, two steps back” policies, no decisive success will ever be achieved. At the same time, the Russian Federation will continue to be saddled with an ever-greater burden in the form of – at first – hundreds of thousands, and then millions of refugees; while Western sanctions gradually undermine the financial and economic health of the country, all the more so because the homegrown oligarchs will try to shift the costs of the sanctions onto the general population.

The traitors hope eventually to bring the situation to the conclusion of a most shameful and humiliating peace treaty, accompanied by the betrayal of the Russian population of Ukraine, in order to cause an additional wave of indignation in Russia itself. And then – in full compliance with the political technologies already perfected in the early 20th century – to bring about a Moscow Maidan, where the right and the left, patriots and liberals will unite in supposedly justified indignation. The proven scenario of 1905 and the 1917, that follows the scheme of “shameful defeat – economic crisis – discrediting of the authorities – popular uprisings – palace coup” is once again in action.

In This Struggle There Can Be No Compromises

In this regard, the defence of Novorossiya and the support of its population are important for the preservation of Russia itself and the disruption of the Fifth Column’s plans. If we are able to secure a victory there – we will preserve Russia. If we lose – we will accordingly lose the remnants of our Fatherland. In this struggle there can be no compromises, and he who tries to convince otherwise is, consciously or not, grist to the mill of the enemy. It is all or nothing – either Russia will restore its real sovereignty in full measure, or it will be destroyed by the coalition of external and internal oligarchic clans.

Having assessed my own place in the fight against the plans of the subversive forces, I would like to say that I have made my choice. The main front of the struggle for Russia is currently here. I hope that it is in Russia that I can do the most good. At the same time, I will emphasize, once again, that those who hoped or still hope to use me or my name for destructive purposes will be sorely disappointed. However critical I may have been with respect to the internal policies of the President, in the circumstances of a war being waged against us, I consider it unquestionably vital to speak out in support of him; as the only legitimate Commander-in-Chief, and the principal guarantor of the freedom and independence of our country. In my opinion, to really protect Novorossiya, which is being subjected to Nazi genocide, we must expose and remove from power those of Novorossiya’s “well-wishers” that have brought us to the brink of military defeat.

And to those who have diligently started to sculpt in the mass media the image of “Colonel Strelkov – the leader of the popular protest”, I declare that they have no chance of bribing me with false praises and promises. The essence of an officer’s duty is to serve his country and his people. It would be the height of dishonor for me to exchange the often thankless, but faithful service, for false glory and popularity of the enemies of the Fatherland. Let them understand, once and for all, that in Russia there are still people (and I am just one among many) who place their Duty and integrity above their own benefit and vanity. And, as the events in Novorossiya have demonstrated, there are still a great many of people like that! And we will not allow for Russia to be ripped asunder and ruined again and again in the manner in which the Russian Empire was destroyed in 1917, and USSR – in 1991.

9/11 – THE MOST MONSTROUS INSIDE JOB EVER

September 11, 2014

After thirteen years, the monsters still rule over the place!

Exposing the most colossal lie ever attempted by a government, you need just half a brain to understand it. That is, if you want to understand! If you are too terrified to leave your personal Truman show, feel free to remain there, locked from the inside. Just please, do not annoy the adults outside!

Two-Lines

The tragedy of September 11, 2001, goes far beyond the deaths of those who died in the towers and the deaths of firefighters and first responders who succumbed to illnesses caused by inhalation of toxic dust. For thirteen years a new generation of Americans has been born into the 9/11 myth that has been used to create the American warfare/police state.

The corrupt Bush and Obama regimes used 9/11 to kill, maim, dispossess and displace millions of Muslims in seven countries, none of whom had anything whatsoever to do with 9/11.

A generation of Americans has been born into disdain and distrust of Muslims.

A generation of Americans has been born into a police state in which privacy and constitutional protections no longer exist.

A generation of Americans has been born into continuous warfare while needs of citizens go unmet.

A generation of Americans has been born into a society in which truth is replaced with the endless repetition of falsehoods.

According to the official story, on September 11, 2001, the vaunted National Security State of the World’s Only Superpower was defeated by a few young Saudi Arabians armed only with box cutters. The American National Security State proved to be totally helpless and was dealt the greatest humiliation ever inflicted on any country claiming to be a power.

That day no aspect of the National Security State worked. Everything failed.

The US Air Force for the first time in its history could not get interceptor jet fighters into the air.

The National Security Council failed.

All sixteen US intelligence agencies failed as did those of America’s NATO and Israeli allies.

Air Traffic Control failed.

Airport Security failed four times at the same moment on the same day. The probability of such a failure is zero.

If such a thing had actually happened, there would have been demands from the White House, from Congress, and from the media for an investigation. Officials would have been held accountable for their failures. Heads would have rolled.

Instead, the White House resisted for one year the 9/11 families’ demands for an investigation. Finally, a collection of politicians was assembled to listen to the government’s account and to write it down. The chairman, vice chairman, and legal counsel of the 9/11 Commission have said that information was withheld from the commission, lies were told to the commission, and that the commission “was set up to fail.” The worst security failure in history resulted in not a single firing. No one was held responsible.

Washington concluded that 9/11 was possible because America lacked a police state.

The PATRIOT Act, which was awaiting the event was quickly passed by the congressional idiots. The Act established executive branch independence of law and the Constitution. The Act and follow-up measures have institutionalized a police state in “the land of the free.”

Osama bin Laden, a CIA asset dying of renal failure, was blamed despite his explicit denial. For the next ten years Osama bin Laden was the bogyman that provided the excuse for Washington to kill countless numbers of Muslims. Then suddenly on May 2, 2011, Obama claimed that US Navy SEALs had killed bin Laden in Pakistan. Eyewitnesses on the scene contradicted the White House’s story. Osama bin Laden became the only human in history to survive renal failure for ten years. There was no dialysis machine in what was said to be bin Laden’s hideaway. The numerous obituaries of bin Laden’s death in December 2001 went down the memory hole. And the SEAL team died a few weeks later in a mysterious helicopter crash in Afghanistan. The thousands of sailors on the aircraft carrier from which bin Laden was said to have been dumped into the Indian Ocean wrote home that no such burial took place.

The fairy tale story of bin Laden’s murder by Seal Team Six served to end the challenge by disappointed Democrats to Obama’s nomination for a second term. It also freed the “war on terror” from the bin Laden constraint. Washington wanted to attack Libya, Syria, and Iran, countries in which bin Laden was known not to have organizations, and the succession of faked bin Laden videos, in which bin Laden grew progressively younger as the fake bin Laden claimed credit for each successive attack, had lost credibility among experts.

Watching the twin towers and WTC 7 come down, it was obvious to me that the buildings were not falling down as a result of structural damage. When it became clear that the White House had blocked an independent investigation of the only three steel skyscrapers in world history to collapse as a result of low temperature office fires, it was apparent that there was a coverup.

After 13 years people at home and abroad find the government’s story less believable.

The case made by independent experts is now so compelling that mainstream media has opened to it. Here is Richard Gage of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth on C-SPAN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Zbv2SvBEec#t=23

After years of persistence a group in New York has secured the necessary number of valid signatures to put on the ballot a vote to investigate the cause of the collapse of the three WTC buildings. The official account, if correct, means that existing fire and building codes are insufficient to protect the public and that all other steel high rise structures are subject to the same failure. The group has been clever to frame the issue in terms of public safety and not in terms of 9/11 truth.

New York authorities, of course, continue to oppose the initiative. The question now rests on a judge’s ruling. It is difficult to imagine a judge going against the government in such a major way, but the group will have made the point that the government has no confidence in the truth of its own story.
Over these 13 years, physicists, chemists, architects, engineers, and first responders have provided massive evidence that completely disproves the official account of the failure of the three skyscrapers. The response to experts has been for non-experts to call experts “conspiracy theorists.” In other words, the defenders of the government’s story have no scientific or factual basis on which to stand. So they substitute name-calling.

9/11 was used to fundamentally alter the nature of the US government and its relationship to the American people. Unaccountable executive power has replaced due process and the checks and balances established by the US Constitution. In the name of National Security, executive power knows no restraints. Essentially, Americans today have no rights if the government targets them.

Those Americans born after 9/11 were born into a different country from the rest of us. Having never experienced constitutional government, they will not know what they have lost.

The anthrax attacks of October 2001 have been forgotten, but Professor Graeme MacQueen in The 2001 Anthrax Deception (Clarity Press, 2014) shows that the anthrax attacks played an essential role in setting the stage for the government’s acquisition of unaccountable police state power. Two Democratic Senate committee chairmen, Thomas Daschle and Patrick Leahy, were disturbed by the Bush regime’s overreach for carte blanche power, and were in a position to block the coming police state legislation and the ability of the executive branch alone to take America to war.

Both senators received anthrax letters, as did major news organizations. The TV network news anchors, such as Dan Rather, who compared the collapse of WTC skyscrapers to buildings brought down by controlled demolition, had not yet been fired by Republicans on framed-up charges.

Initially, the anthrax letters, which caused the deaths of some USPS employees, were seen as the second stage of the 9/11 attack. Fear multiplied. The senators and media shut up. Then it was discovered that the anthrax was a unique kind produced only by a US government military facility.

The response to this monkey wrench thrown into the government’s propaganda, was the FBI’s frame-up of a dead man, Bruce Edwards Ivins, who had been employed in the military lab that produced the anthrax and was driven to suicide by the false charges. The dead man’s colleagues did not believe one word of the government’s false story, and nothing in the dead man’s past indicated any motive or instability that would have led him to such a deed.

Initially, the US government tried to frame up Steven Jay Hatfill, but despite the best efforts of the New York Times and Nicholas Kristof the attempt to frame Hatfill failed. Hatfill received $5 million from the US government for the false accusation that ruined his life. So the corrupt US government moved on to Ivins.

Ivins was dead and couldn’t defend himself, but his colleagues did.

The entire episode stinks to high heaven. Justice is something that exists outside the borders of the United States. Never expect to find justice within the United States.

Most Americans are unaware of the extent to which the federal government owns the experts who can contradict its fairy tales. For example, no competent physicist can possibly believe the official story of the destruction of the three WTC buildings. But physics departments in US universities are heavily dependent on federal money. Any physicist who speaks his mind jeopardizes not only his own career but also the career of all of his colleagues. Physicist Steven Jones, who first pointed to the use of thermite in the destruction of the two towers had to agree to having his university buy out his tenure or his university was faced with losing all federal financing.

The same constraints operate in the private sector. High rise architects and structural engineers who express doubts about the official explanation of the collapse of three skyscrapers are viewed by potential clients as Muslim apologists and conspiracy kooks. The clients, of course, have no expert knowledge with which to assess the issue, but they are indoctrinated with ceaseless, endless, repetition that 9/11 was Osama bin Laden’s attack on America. Their indoctrination makes them immune to facts.

The 9/11 lie has persisted for 13 years. Millions of Muslims have paid for this lie with their lives, the destruction of their families, and with their dislocation. Most Americans remain comfortable with the fact that their government has destroyed in whole or part seven countries based on a lie Washington told to cover up an inside job that launched the crazed neoconservatives’ drive for Washington’s World Empire.                             Paul Craig Roberts                 (via The Saker)
