Jewish Rabbi Gives Three Infants "Herpes"
La Voz de Aztlan
Angeles, Alta California, February 2, 2005 - (ACN) An incredible, shocking and
horrific report is coming out of New York City concerning male baby fellatio,
genital mutilation and the infection with "herpes" of three infants by
a Jewish Rabbi. City of New York health officials are investigating the death of
a baby boy who was one of three infants infected with Herpes Simplex Virus Type
1 that exists predominantly in the mouths of homosexuals.
The practice called "metzitzah b’peh" by Jews is routinely practiced
on Jewish baby boys and may explain their sexual dysfunctions later in adult
life. Many adult male Jews are "mother fixated" and exhibit a preponderance
of homosexual and feminine characteristics. They are being
"shocked" out of their masculinity as infants by the ancient and
bizarre practices of Jewish Rabbis. It is not yet known what percentage of
Jewish males go through the horror.
The case was made public after the New York Health Department filed a
complaint in the Manhattan Supreme Court against the Rabbi
Yitzhok Fischer. The rabbi had performed "metzitzah b’peh" on
twin baby boys last October. A few days later one died of herpes and the other
tested positive for the virus. The health department later found a third baby
with the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 that the rabbi had "sucked his
This incredible but true report is now casting doubts on the
"medical" practice of circumcision which is unnecessary, Jewish
inspired, and amounts to nothing less than "male
genital mutilation." There are now a vast number of medical studies
that prove that males grow up healthier and perform better sexually when their
penises are left intact. The "circumcising" of
Gentile baby boys is essentially "Judaizing" them for life.
"They may perform on the Sabbath all things that are needful for
circumcision: excision, tearing, sucking the penis, and putting thereon a
bandage and cumin. If this had not been pounded up on the eve of the Sabbath a
man may chew it with his teeth and then apply it."
after all ...it is

Sharon considers rebels' budget deal
By GIL HOFFMAN
JPost, 21 Mar 2005
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is considering a proposal raised by Agriculture
Minister Yisrael Katz to legalize illegal outposts in return for the support
of the 13 so-called Likud rebels on the 2005 state budget, Katz said on
The proposal, which was first reported by Channel 2's Udi Segal, would apply
to 71 outposts built before March 2001. Katz intends to raise the idea on
Monday morning in the first meeting of a new ministerial committee on
outposts that was appointed to examine the ramifications of attorney Talia
Sasson's outpost report.
"If the prime minister agrees to the proposal, I will guarantee him a
majority on the budget," a confident Katz told The Jerusalem Post.
"Legalizing the outposts would be a significant achievement for the
that the Likud MKs would have to appreciate. This would also allow the
budget to pass with Likud support instead of relying on Yahad and Arab MKs,
preventing a potential split in the Likud."
Katz said that he has gotten positive feedback on the idea from Finance
Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Likud rebel MKs and top officials in the
Council of Jewish Settlements in Judea, Samaria, and the Gaza Strip. Sources
in the Prime Minister's Office called the proposal "unrealistic and
diplomatically problematic," but Katz said that Sharon's aides also
initially dismissed his idea of holding a referendum in the Likud on
disengagement before eventually adopting it.
Netanyahu's office said he would consider the idea if it became concrete.
Labor MK Yuli Tamir said she would vote against the budget if Sharon
accepted the proposal. Rebel leader Uzi Landau and the settlers' council
both released statements rejecting the proposal.
"The budget vote is on disengagement and has nothing to do with the
outposts," a spokesman for the rebels said. "Katz is just trying to
sand in the eyes of the public and justify his vote for disengagement."
Netanyahu will meet with the rebels on Monday morning in a last-ditch
attempt to convince them to at least support the budget in the Knesset
Finance Committee. Committee chairman Ya'acov Litzman moved up the
committee's vote to Tuesday after coalition chairman Gideon Sa'ar reported
progress in talks with rebels on the committee. If the rebels do not agree
to vote for the budget on Monday, Sa'ar is expected to kick them off the
In an effort to obtain the final votes necessary to pass the budget, Sharon
intends to meet on Monday morning with Shas chairman Eli Yishai, in the
afternoon with renegade Likud MK Haim Katz, and later in the week with
Shinui leader Yosef Lapid.
Shinui MKs spent the day denying a front-page headline in Ma'ariv in which
Shinui MKs promised to save the Sharon government. The report singled out
former environment minister Ilan Shalgi and backbench MKs Eti Livni, Ilan
Leibovich, and Ehud Rassabi. The four MKs each put out statements denying
that they intend to rebel against the leadership of Lapid or vote
independently against a faction decision to oppose the budget.
"There are no rebels in Shinui," Rassabi said. "Our strength is
that the 14
of us vote as a unified bloc on everything and that isn't going to change."
"I want to help pass the budget and to allow the disengagement plan to be
implemented but I will support whatever the faction decides, because I
believe that we have to accept the faction's decisions even if I disagree
with them," Leibovich said.
Sharon's chances of passing the budget may have received an unexpected boost
on Sunday, when allies of Yahad leader Yossi Beilin submitted the 120
signatures necessary to convene the party's 1000 member convention next
Sunday. The convention is expected to pressure MK Yossi Sarid to join the
rest of the Yahad faction in voting for the budget.
"The convention won't impact my decision," said Sarid, who does not
to attend the event because of a prior engagement. "I will only decide how
to vote at the last minute based on the circumstances at hand. I assure you,
I will know how to decide when the time is right."
United Arab List, Balad, and Hadash MKs intend to meet at the Knesset on
Monday in an attempt to coordinate their votes on the budget. But Hadash MK
Mohammed Barakeh said there was little chance his party would not oppose the
budget and UAL chairman Abdel-Malek Dehamshe said the understandings that he
reached with Sharon's aides in return for the two UAL MK's abstentions are
not off the table.
"We are ready to start over with Sharon's people but if the other Arab MKs
aren't serious and they raise unreasonable conditions, we will continue on
our own," Dehamshe said. "Prime ministers only ask for Arab support as
last resort, so we have to take advantage of this situation."
Meanwhile, a Knesset Law Committee vote on a bill authorizing a national
referendum on disengagement was delayed from Tuesday to Wednesday in order
to give wavering MKs Avraham Ravitz (Degel Hatorah) and Nissim Ze'ev (Shas)
more time. Ravitz and Ze'ev hold the key in a vote that without the two MKs
leans eight votes to seven against a referendum.
Ravitz's spiritual mentor, Rabbi Shalom Yosef Elyashiv sent two messengers
to the 15 rabbis on Degel's Council of Torah Sages to help Elyashiv decide
how Ravitz should vote. Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef will not
decide how Ze'ev will vote until after Elyashiv's decision

Q Do you have any concerns about the way Russia has handled
the sale of Yukos, and
will this come up at the meeting on February 24th?
MR. McCLELLAN: Yes, we have previously indicated concerns about the situation
regarding Yukos. We are
disappointed that Russia went ahead with the auction of the Yukos
subsidiary. We had hoped for a solution that would allow for the legitimate
enforcement of tax laws, but avoid harming investors, especially American
investors. And we have communicated to the Russian government repeatedly that
its handling of the Yukos
matter could have a chilling effect on the foreign investment in Russia, and
affect its role in the global economy. We continue to believe it's Russia's
responsibility to seek greater integration into the world economy, to create an
environment governed by the protection of property rights and rule of law, and
to restore confidence in its political, legal and judicial institutions.
The United States supports the ability of investors to pursue interests in
Russia and believes that Russia should ensure a stable, predictable and
transparent environment for those investors.
Q Will the President raise this with Putin?
MR. McCLELLAN: Well, I think the agenda is being worked out now, and the
President does bring up the concerns that we have when he meets with President
Putin. We have a very good relationship, as the President talked about
yesterday, and it's a relationship where we can talk about our efforts to work
together on shared priorities like the war on terrorism, as well as talk about
differences that we may have in a very open way.

Yukos partners buy 26% of Petrochemical Enterprises
The Menatep group will also finance an investment by the
controlling shareholders in place of Bank Hapoalim, which opposed the deal.
20 Mar 05 18:27
The controlling shareholders of Israel Petrochemical
Enterprises (TASE: PTCH)
David Federman; Gima Investments, controlled by Israel Petrochemical Enterprises
chairman Jacob Gottenstein; and Alex Pesel have recruited a powerful partner for
the controlling interest: the Menatep group, owned by billionaires Leonid
Nevzlin, Vladimir Dubov, and Mikhail Brudno.
The trio, who are among the owners of Russian fuel company Yukos
(RTS:YUKO), now live in Israel,
after having fled Russia where they were accused of tax evasion. The three claim
that they were victims of political persecution.
Menatep is set to acquire 26% of privately held Modgal
Industries, which owns 57% of Israel Petrochemical.
Israel Petrochemical's market cap was $230 million as of this
morning. The share has risen 175% since early 2004.
Although the stock exchange announcement did not disclose
financial details, it is believed that the deal with Menatap reflects a value of
over $250 million for Israel Petrochemical.
According to the announcement, Menatap will buy 20% of Modgal
Industries. The shares are currently held by Plastiche, part of the Belgium's
Ravago group. At the same time, Modgal Industries will sell 7.5% of the shares
it holds, so that in all, Menatap will close the deal with 26%
The deal includes several other agreements, including an loan
agreement in which Menatap will grant to Israel Petrochemical controlling
shareholders Federman and Gima Investments, to replace a current loan from Bank
A few weeks ago,Bank Hapoalim, which had funded the owners' purchase of control
in Israel Petrochemicals, reportedly refused to allow Menatap entry into the
Presumably, the bank's refusal was related to the police
investigation of its HaYarkon Street branch on suspicions of a multimillion
dollar money laundering operation. (The trio apparently have no connection to
The result: Upon deal-close, Menatap will grant Federman and
Gima a loan in the amount of tens of millions of dollars, which will be used to
repay the existing Bank Hapoalim loan. The liens on owners' assets, currently
granted to the bank, will be revoked. The assets include control of Modgal
Industries, or over 50.1% of Israel Petrochemical share capital.

NEW YORK - A lawyer for the founder of Russia's troubled oil giant Yukos

Bush could end "this

"a single word" when he meets the Kremlin leader at a summit next
In arguably the biggest trial in Russia's post-communist history,
Khodorkovsky and his partner Platon Lebedev have been charged with fraud and
tax evasion. The trial is nearing an end after dragging on since June 16 in
a cramped Moscow courtroom, where Khodorkovsky sits in a cage according to
Russian judicial proceedings.
Khodorkovsky, Russia's richest man, was jailed Oct. 25, 2003, after special
forces troops surrounded his private jet at an airport in Siberia.
"His case is absolutely hopeless in the Russian judicial system, which
is not independent. They are going to find him guilty, although he didn't
commit any crime at all," said Karinna Moskalenko, one of

Two Years Later, Iraq War Drains Military
Heavy Demands Offset Combat Experience
By Ann Scott Tyson
Washington Post Staff Writer
Saturday, March 19, 2005; Page A01
Two years after the United States launched a war in Iraq with a crushing
display of power, a guerrilla conflict is grinding away at the resources of
the U.S. military and casting uncertainty over the fitness of the
all-volunteer force, according to senior military leaders, lawmakers and
setting up a Justification for Mandatory services, to
have your children fight and die for the shemgods
The unexpectedly heavy demands of sustained ground combat are depleting
military manpower and gear faster than they can be fully replenished.
Shortfalls in recruiting and backlogs in needed equipment are taking a toll,
and growing numbers of units have been broken apart or taxed by repeated
deployments, particularly in the Army National Guard and the Army Reserve
"What keeps me awake at night is, what will this all-volunteer force
look like in 2007?" Gen. Richard A. Cody, Army vice chief of staff, said at
a Senate hearing this week.
The Iraq war has also led to a drop in the overall readiness of U.S. ground
forces to handle threats at home and
abroad, forcing the Pentagon to accept new risks -- even as military planners
prepare for a global anti-terrorism campaign that administration officials say
could last for a generation.
any who will oppose the beast
Stretched by Iraq and Afghanistan, the United States lacks a sufficiently robust
ability to put large numbers of "boots on the ground" in case of a
major emergency elsewhere, such as the Korean Peninsula, in the view of some
Republican and Democratic lawmakers and some military leaders.
They are skeptical of the Pentagon's ability to substitute air and naval power,
and they believe strongly that what the country needs is a bigger Army.
"The U.S. military will respond if there are vital threats, but will it
respond with as many forces as it needs, with equipment that is in excellent
condition? The answer is no," said Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.).
To be sure, the military has also benefited from two years of war-zone
rotations, and from a historical perspective it is holding up better than many
analysts expected. U.S. troops are the most combat-hardened the nation has had
for decades, and reenlistment levels have generally remained high. The war has
also spurred technological innovation while providing momentum for a
reorganization of a military that in many ways is still designed for the Cold
Moreover, military leaders are taking steps to ease stress on the troops by
temporarily boosting ranks; rebalancing forces to add badly needed infantry,
military police and civil affairs troops; and employing civilians where
possible. Yesterday, defense officials worried about recruiting announced that
they will raise the age limit, from 34 to 40, for
enlistment in the Army Guard and Reserve. The Pentagon is spending billions to
repair and replace battle-worn equipment and buy extra armor, radios, weapons
and other gear.
Yet such remedies take time, and no one, including senior officials, can predict
how long the all-volunteer force can sustain this accelerated
wartime pace. Recruiting troubles, especially, threaten the force at its
core. But with a return to the draft widely viewed as
economically and politically untenable, senior military leaders say the nation's
security depends on drumming up broader public support for service.
All for TREASONOUS Vipers who control the Pimp
"If we don't get this thing right, the risk
is off the scale," said Lt. Gen. Roger C. Schultz, director of the
Army National Guard, the military's most stressed branch.
A Tough Sell
At dusk the night the Iraq war started in March 2003, (PURIM)
Staff Sgt. Spurgeon M. Shelley was near the Kuwaiti border, watching the
orange glow of missiles streak overhead as he guided one Marine ammunition
convoy after another north across the line of departure.
Manning a dirt berm while wearing his gas mask and full chemical suit, Shelley
was determined to make it home alive to see his daughter, Lena, 2. "I'm
going to do whatever I have to, to survive," he told himself.
Today, Shelley is on duty in what he calls a "one-man fighting hole"
on another battlefield -- a Marine recruiting station in Lexington Park, Md., in
St. Mary's County -- with a mission to persuade young men and women to enlist, and
probably go to war.
One recent night, after making dozens of fruitless phone calls to high school
students, Shelley said his recruiting job is more taxing than combat. "I
hear 'no' more times in one day than a child would hear in their entire
childhood," he said. "If I had hair, I'd pull it out."
The active-duty Army and Marine Corps, and five of six reserve components of the
military, all failed to meet at least some recruiting goals in the first quarter
of fiscal 2005, according to Defense Department statistics. The active-duty
shortfalls came amid rising concern among Army and Marine officials that their
services risk missing annual recruiting quotas for the first time this decade.
Shelley, for example, has signed up four people in nearly six months, despite
working 16-hour days. Asked why recruiting is so difficult, he has a quick
reply: "The war."
Accomplished".......saith the Bushkevik of DAN
Increasingly, surveys show that the main reason young American adults avoid
military service is that they -- and to a greater degree their parents -- fear
that enlisting could mean a war-zone deployment and death
or injury. One survey showed such fears nearly doubling among respondents
from 2000 to 2004.
Indeed, today's recruiting problems reflect a widespread concern dating from the
conception of the all-volunteer force in 1973 -- that a military composed wholly
of volunteers would not supply adequate troops for a lengthy ground war.
But confidence in the force has since grown as it gained discipline and
professionalism. Meanwhile, overseas missions proliferated, even as the military
downsized drastically. The Army shrank from 40 active-duty and National Guard
divisions during the Vietnam War to 28 when the Cold War ended, and it has 18
The military is seeking to rebuild forces, adding temporarily 30,000 Army
soldiers and 5,000 Marines. But the war isn't the only obstacle. Rising college
attendance and an expanding job market are giving high school graduates more
choices. "It's times like this when unemployment is reaching
5 percent that is a critical level" for undercutting
recruitment, said Curtis L. Gilroy, director of accession policy for the Defense
To meet its targets, the Army is considering expanding the use of enlistment
bonuses of as much as $20,000. Both the Army and the Marines are adding hundreds
of recruiters, who "will have to work very, very hard," Gilroy said.
Shelley's situation exemplifies the pressure on today's recruiters. Up at 6:30,
he consults his "plan of attack," a white sheet of paper on which he
pencils in his activities by the hour. At lunchtime, he hits fast-food
restaurants. When school lets out at 2:45, he starts calling potential recruits
at home. In early evening, he goes to gas stations or the 7-Eleven, scouting for
youths with "less desirable" jobs. At night, he is out "AC-ing,"
or "area canvassing," until 10:30.
Palming the steering wheel of his steel-gray Dodge Stratus one night, Shelley
cruises slowly past a Chick-fil-A. Scanning the cars, he estimates who's in the
restaurant and whether it's worth going in. It's not.
He makes one last, failed pitch of the day -- to an overweight young man
stacking tomatoes at Giant -- and heads home. As long as the war drags on,
recruiting won't improve, he predicts. "I think it's going to get
As the military struggles to find fresh recruits, there is
unprecedented strain on service members and their families.
Since 2001, the U.S. military has deployed more than 1
million troops for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, with 341,000, or
nearly a third, serving two or more overseas tours.
Today, an entrenched insurgency in Iraq ties down 150,000 U.S. troops,
inflicting upwards of 1,500 deaths so far -- more than 10 times the number
killed in the major combat operations that President
Bush declared ended on May 1, 2003.
Because of the spreading violence from the insurgency, coupled with a smaller
foreign coalition than was hoped for, the U.S. Army and Marines in particular
have scrambled to keep a force of roughly 17 brigades in Iraq until now, rather
than draw down to eight brigades or even be out altogether, according to
previous military projections.
Lt. Gen. James J. Lovelace Jr., the Army's operations chief, is a kind of circus
master responsible for juggling limited units and equipment and prioritizing who
does what. Ringed by organizational charts in his Pentagon office, the West
Point graduate from Richmond ticked off the far-flung corners from which the
Army has had to muster forces.
"We've deployed units of the Old Guard!" he said, referring to the
first-ever deployment of the ceremonial guard from Fort Myer, when a company was
dispatched to Djibouti last year. "We've reached up inside of Alaska and
grabbed the forces up there," he said. "Korea! Who would have ever
thought that we would have deployed a combat formation?" he said, referring
to a brigade sent from South Korea to Iraq.
Two years ago, the Army released 2,500 recruiters so they could ship out with
tactical units, officials say. The Marines also sent scores fewer people to
recruiting school because they were needed for military operations.
Reenlistment rates, which have remained strong despite lengthy combat tours,
took a slight downturn in the active-duty Army and Army National Guard during
the first four months of fiscal 2005. The Army met 94 percent of its target for
getting first-term soldiers to reenlist, and it hit 96 percent among those in
mid-career. An earlier study of troops in Bosnia showed they were initially more
likely to reenlist than those who had stayed home, but their renewal rates
dropped as the number, length and danger of deployments increased.
"I worry about the soldiers with the second and third
tour . . . since 9/11," Cody, the Army vice chief, told reporters
As it rounds up troops for deployments, the Army has had to allocate limited
equipment. It has shuffled thousands of items from radios to rifles between
units, geared up new industrial production, and depleted the Army's
pre-positioned stocks of tanks, Humvees and other assets to outfit units for

Army stocks in Southwest Asia are exhausted, and those in Europe have also been
"picked over," one U.S. official said. Roughly half of the Army and
Marine equipment stored afloat on ships has been used up, the official said.
Refilling the stocks must wait until the Iraq war winds down, Army officials
Meanwhile, a sizable portion of Marine and Army gear is in Iraq, wearing out at
up to six times the normal rate. Battle losses are
mounting; the Army has lost 79 aircraft and scores of tanks and Bradley
Fighting Vehicles. "We are equip-stretched, let there be no doubt about it.
. . . This Army started this war not fully equipped," Cody said in recent
Not So saith Rummy Dumsfeld
The priority on allocating scarce resources to deployed units means that forces
rotating back home -- especially reserve units -- are dropping in readiness. In
many cases, they are being rated at the lowest level, C4, because of a lack of
functioning equipment, required training or manpower.
"The Army in the aggregate is reporting readiness levels that are less
today than they have been in the past," said Paul W. Mayberry, deputy to
the undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness.
But Wolf-of-no-witz promoted to World Bank of zion
The Pentagon says that by rotating duties, it maintains enough ready forces and
pre-positioned equipment to handle a crisis on the Korean Peninsula and other
contingencies. But U.S. lawmakers are concerned.
Sen. John W. Warner (R-Va.) said he worries primarily about the U.S. ability to
respond if "some problem should arise on the Korean
"How capable are we of handling another major conflict?" asked Sen.
John McCain (R-Ariz.). "It's pretty obvious that it would be incredibly
difficult because of the portion of our resources devoted to Iraq and
Afghanistan. What if a conflict broke out with North Korea or Iran?"
Feeling the Strain
Of all the military branches, the Army National Guard and the Army Reserve are
suffering the most, as they provide between a third and half of the troops in
Iraq, despite a legacy of chronic shortages in their manning and equipment.
"The real stress on the system was the fact that no one envisioned that we
would have this level of commitment for the National Guard," which shipped
seven combat brigades to Iraq and Afghanistan for the most recent rotation, Cody
Because the Army traditionally undersupplies Guard and reserve units, few had
the troops or gear needed when mobilized. As a result, large numbers of soldiers
and equipment were shifted from one unit to another, or
"cross-leveled," to cobble together a force to deploy.
We fight with the Military we have, saith Dumsfeld
"We were woefully underequipped before the war started. That situation
hasn't gotten any better. As a matter of fact, it gets a little bit worse every
day, because we continue to cross-level," Lt. Gen. H. Steven Blum, chief of
the National Guard Bureau, told Congress this month.
The widespread fracturing of units is making it increasingly difficult for the
Army to assemble viable forces from the remaining hodgepodge -- most of which
have low readiness ratings, Army figures show. "It's a little bit like
Swiss cheese. We've taken out holes in the units," Lovelace said.
"Those holes are a lot of times leaders, and they are hard to grow."
Already, the Guard and Reserve have deployed the vast majority of their forces
most needed for fighting counterinsurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan -- such as
military intelligence, civil affairs, infantry and military police -- bringing
into question whether the Pentagon's two-year limit on reserve mobilizations is
"Can we do this forever? No. We can't do this forever at current
levels," the Army National Guard's Schultz said in an interview.
In a sign of deeper problems, career citizen-soldiers frustrated by broken units
and long, grueling war-zone duties are increasingly leaving the Guard. Attrition
among career guardsmen is running at nearly 20 percent, said Schultz, who
expects that as many as a third of the members of some units rotating back from
Iraq will quit.
Hey where went all the chinese dime store
"Amarakan" car flag waving Patriots ?...me asketh
Recruitment is sluggish, reaching just 75 percent of the target for the first
quarter of fiscal 2005 -- meaning that the Guard is unlikely to reach its
desired strength of 350,000 soldiers this year.

The viability of the Army Guard and Reserve will prove decisive, senior Army
leaders say, as they consider in 2006 whether to permanently increase the size
of the active-duty Army, and if so by how much. It also marks a critical test of
the military's ability to appeal to the civilian population, not only with
bonuses and education benefits, but also with an ethos of self-sacrifice
that it considers the bedrock of the all-volunteer force.
