5 November 2004. Thought for the Week: Powerful allies made yet more powerful by political favours always retain the ultimate power to change sides at will. The more you give them, the less power you have to say no next time. And they always jump ship sooner or later - once they've used you up."
Margo Kingston, in "Not Happy, John." 2004.
JUDAISM: ABOVE ANALYSIS, CRITICISM AND COMMENT?
The Daily Telegraph, 13th October, 2004 reported the astounding news "the U.S. Congress has ordered the State Department to start rating governments throughout the world on their treatment of Jewish citizens." It is the intention of the State Department to have "the resulting report cards on anti-Semitism published in annual U.S. surveys of human rights abuses around the world." The newspaper article continues: "The proposed law was passed by the House of Representatives on Monday, in response to what its sponsors called an alarming surge in anti-Semitism, especially in Europe. It has already been passed by the Senate."
At least some diplomats put up some sort
of objection by complaining in an internal memo that a special
focus on Judaism, "opens us to charges of favouritism
and challenges the credibility of our reporting," although
Congress overruled their opposition. There is little doubt
that the new law will create diplomatic waves. France, Russia,
Malaysia, Egypt, Canada and Australia were singled out by
congressional sponsors of the law as countries that had witnessed
disturbing outbreaks of discrimination against Jews in the
The 'Act' backed by both parties
In a sign of the diplomatic anxieties,
the State Department argued for anti-Semitism monitoring to
remain a task conducted behind closed doors, by the department's
existing "special envoy for holocaust issues." At
the moment, U.S. diplomats discreetly gather data on anti-Semitism
from other governments, in multilateral conferences held in
Europe and an annual international religious freedom round
table sponsored by Washington.
THE JEWISH 'PARADOX'
Using quotes from Dr. Nahum Goldmann's
book "The Jewish Paradox" (Weidenfeld &
Nicholson) Benson gave us examples to help with the difficulty
of interpreting the Jewish 'doublespeak', and of grasping
the not so obvious paradox of the Jewish presence in the 20th
Century. Not just an ordinary Jew, Goldmann had spoken "for
world Jewry with all the world's leaders since long before
A paradox can be used in two ways
Benson gives examples from Goldmann's
On Jewish 'Identity'
"Jewish philosophy, thought and
ideology," Dr. Goldmann continues, "are made up
of manifold contradictions. One of them is that we are at
one and the same time the most separatist and most universalist
people in the world."
Benson highlights the paradox in the
Benson suggests that instead of trying
to follow Dr Goldmann through the labyrinthine caves of the
Jews' "revolutionary notion" of a people that is
at once "separatist and universal", let's drive
a perfectly straight, well-lit tunnel right through this great
mountain of paradoxes and see what we find:
Another good example
The paradox is that although "the
U.S. Congress has ordered the State Department to start rating
governments throughout the world on their treatment of Jewish
citizens," it is the chutzpah of these now powerful Jewish
citizens, no matter in which country they have settled, and
their treatment of the host people among whom they have settled,
in trying to try to impose their will upon those host people
- and still cry 'foul'!
As for the Anglo-Saxon Australians
IS THE DRAFT AN IMMINENT THREAT FOR AMERICAN YOUTH?
Americans are pondering what are the
chances their government (whether Bush or Kerry win) will
bring in military conscription after the November elections.
Both contenders for the 'prize' have said they would not reinstate
it, but will Americans -- as Australians well know - learn
from bitter experience, that these people can "lie through
their teeth" while on the campaign trail?
Socially disadvantaged expected to
die for 'their country'
"The liberals correctly argue that poor minorities join the military in greater numbers because they have less economic opportunity in the civilian economy. Although African-Americans are somewhat over represented in the enlisted ranks of the Army and Marines (Hispanics are actually under-represented), they are less represented in ground combat units of those services. The reality is that many African-Americans choose to join military supply and logistics units, rather than combat units, to better acquire specific skills that are more easily transferable to the private sector."
However, Eland cautions the public against relying on policymakers to see the folly of conscription, despite its very low societal benefits and very high societal costs, "After the election, the public should remain vigilant of any attempts to bring back this white elephant from a bygone era."
PAYING FOR THE IRAQ WAR
The youth of America, Britain and Australia
are in danger of being killed, permanently maimed or psychologically
damaged as they fight a war of aggression on behalf of the
elite's financial and commercial benefit. WE, that is you,
me, the people - US - PAY for the war through the horrendous
taxation regime under which we all labour. WE pay. THEY benefit!
WOULD YOU HAVE VOLUNTARILY PAID FOR THE
Suppose each household had to pay an equal share of the total Iraq war costs to date, say, $200 billion, as well as risk the injury or death of a household member -- roughly in proportion to the risk of injury or death of the U.S. soldiers stationed in Iraq. How many citizens, asks Higgs, would have been willing to accept this contract? "My guess is almost none," writes Higgs. "Even if I'm far from guessing correctly, however, I find it inconceivable that enough citizens even to approach forming a majority would have entered voluntarily into this contract."
THE GROUP, THE INDIVIDUAL AND WARA few years after WWI Clifford Hugh Douglas asked his readers: Why is it the individual killing of one man by another we term murder. But collective and wholesale killing, we dignify by the name of war, and we specifically absolve the individual from the consequences of any acts which are committed under the orders of a superior officer.
This appears to work admirably so long as the results of the action do not take place on a plane on which they can be observed; but immediately they do, the theory obviously breaks down. There may be, ex-hypothesi, no moral guilt attributable to the individual who goes to war; but the effect of intercepting the line of flight of a high-speed bullet will be found to be exactly the same whether it is fired by a national or a private opponent.
'Nations' are alleged to have waged the first world war, but the casualties both of life and property fell upon individuals. There is no such thing as an effective 'national' responsibility --it is a pure abstraction, under cover of which, oppression and tyranny to individuals, which would not be tolerated if inflicted by a personal ruler, escape effective criticism.
We do not know what is the automatic reaction consequent on the killing of one individual by another, as distinct from the non-automatic and artificial reaction involved in the trial and punishment of a murderer in a court of law. But we do know that over every plane of action with which we are acquainted, action and reaction are equal, opposite, and wholly automatic. Consequently, there is nothing to indicate that the automatic consequences of a given action will exhibit any difference if committed under the orders of a superior officer, or not. Further, it may be observed that non-automatic "punishment" really constitutes a separate group of actions and reactions.
If we throw a stone into a still pool of water, the ripples which result are not eliminated by throwing in a second stone, although they may be masked, and to the extent that legal punishments represent, not the ripples from the first stone, but the casting of the second, it will be seen that a complicated situation is inevitable.
MISSING EDITIONS OF 'THE NEW TIMES'Who can help? Do any of our older supporters have copies of the following editions of The New Times? We have undertaken the huge task of scanning on to computer the printed copies of The New Times and find we are missing Vol. 23 No. 22: 1st November 1957 and Vol. 23 No.23: 15th November, 1957.

ORPHAN BABIES WERE HUMAN GUINEA PIGS
One would have expected such treatment
of tiny helpless babes under a Communist or Nazi regime, but
in a 'civilised' country such as Australia? Read on:
It is not clear from the CSL records
whether polio vaccine used to produce quadruple antigen used
in the tests came from contaminated batches.
support group for victims of contaminated medical products
yesterday called for a royal commission into CSL.
There is no indication of who gave formal consent for the babies to be used in the trials, which were carried out by CSL's virus research department. Further development and use of the quadruple antigen, which also provided vaccination against whooping cough, diptheria and tetanus, appeared to have been abandoned during 1962-63. Salk vaccine was replaced with Sabin oral polio vaccine by 1965.
The Age revealed that in 1997
Victorian children's homes and orphanages had been used by
a number of medical and research organisations, including
CSL, for trials of a range of experimental vaccines. The reports
led to inquiries by the state and federal health departments,
which concluded there was no evidence of any other similar
medical trials. Neither report referred to the quadruple antigen
Editor's note: Now that you have read the above article you need to read such books as "The Aids Time Bomb" written by Dr. John West in 1988! Dr. West warned then of the dangers of the African Green Monkey deadly S.V.40 pre-Aids virus which had been found in polio and other vaccines. We are thankful the mainline newspaper The Age has finally exposed what many Australians learned about all those years ago!

BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS
"The Aids Time Bomb", by Dr. John West. A few copies of this book are still available. While highly provocative at the time, it traced the probable roots of the AIDS epidemic back to the administration of human vaccines contaminated with AIDS-like viruses (such as the monkey virus called SV40). In addition John West brings to light the long-lost, more than a century-old Béchamp theory of disease that brilliantly explains how diseases like AIDS and cancer are caused. Professor Béchamp was a pioneer in the field of biological science but his name and achievements have almost disappeared 'down the memory hole'. Price: $20 posted.
"Exploiting the Myth of Vaccination" by Drs. Michael Godfrey & Robert Anderson. The book highlights the fact there is too little known of the long-term effects of multiple early vaccination. Vaccination is firmly on the public health agenda and it is predicted by 2010 babies could be receiving 15 different vaccines at the same time. Isn't it time parents gave serious thought to such a prospect? Price: $5 posted.
"Vaccination" by Viera Scheibner. The culmination of years of research. The doctor has hunted through thousands of articles, read between the lines, and reviewed the raw data published in orthodox medical journals and papers on the question of immunisation and its effects. The aim of the book is to inform medical professionals, parents of small children and the general public about short and long-term dangerous side-effects of vaccines. In 1993 Dr. Scheibner Ph.D. was already warning that the first batches of polio vaccine, used in mass proportions in some countries of Africa in the 1950s, was grown on monkey kidneys from which simian immunodeficiency viruses had been cultured. She insists this provides the causal link to AIDS. Price: $37.50 posted.
AUDIO TAPES: Some excellent audio tapes on the subject of Vaccination are readily available. Contact Mayo Tapes, Box 6, Hahndorf, South Australia 5245 and ask for a list.
