It is not often that I receive a free DVD in the mail. When it happens, the sending party is desperately seeking to either reinforce, or change my view, on a particular issue. My interest was instantly peaked when I opened my mailbox and found a DVD copy of the anti-Muslim terror-porn flick Obsession.

The movie is a demagogic portrayal of a fringe element of the Islamic world heavily slanted to represent a majority anti-Western viewpoint. Having studied the supposed radical Islamic threat to Western civilization over the past several years, I was aware of the this piece of mythomaniacal propaganda. I wondered who might be behind this operation.

The DVD was mailed to 28 million U.S. households in swing election states by a 501(c)(3) organization named the Clarion Fund. The board of directors and the donors to this organization are a mystery, as the Clarion Fund refused to disclose the names of these individuals. An article (now removed) linked to the group’s website www.radicalislam.org, backed John McCain for president. Copies of the film were handed out at the Republican National Convention.

The packaging indicated that the DVD was produced by a fellow named Raphael Shore (an Israeli-Canadian rabbi and director of both Aish HaTorah International and the Hasbara Fellowships, a pro-Israel advocacy group). Rabbi Shore told the New York Times that his early showings of “Obsession” targeted “evangelical Christians”. Fundamentalist Christians are the useful idiots in the “War of Terror” brainwash campaign designed to improve the odds of a McCain presidency.

There seems to be a mystery surrounding who bankrolled this massive DVD propaganda campaign. Clarion Fund Communications Director Gregory Ross declined to say how much Clarion was spending on distributing the DVD, beyond a vague “millions of dollars.” Ross said that “for the privacy of everyone involved, we try to limit” information. Secrecy is usually necessary when propaganda peddlers want to keep their tracks hidden.

According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz:

Shore and director Wayne Kopping of South Africa are the only figures associated with the film willing to release their real names and appear in media interviews; the executive producer is listed as Peter Mier, while the production manager is listed as Brett Halperin. But Mier and Halperin are just aliases, Shore says. He describes the real Mier as a Canadian Jewish businessman who wanted to do something significant, but asked to remain anonymous for fear of his safety. According to Shore, about 80 percent of the film’s $400,000 budget was provided by Mier.

Why all the aliases and secrecy I wonder. Maybe it has something to do with that pesky federal U.S. 501(c)(3) law prohibiting foreign political institutions or foreign organizations from contributing to the Clarion Fund’s operations. Given that both the producer and the director are foreigners (with an anti-Muslim agenda), and the financial backers are anonymous, it all looks very suspicious.

The release of the film coincided with the 7th anniversary of the 9-11 mega ritual, and was on the eve of a presidential election. Who else might be behind this psy-op operation designed to influence American public opinion? Israelenews.com reported that:

The Republican Jewish Coalition is responsible for a mailing received by Reform rabbis and other Jews that included a DVD of the controversial anti-Muslim film Obsession. At least part of the mailing was sent under the postal permit of Christians United for Israel, a leading Christian Zionist organization.

Christians United for Israel (CUFI) was founded by none other than everyone’s favorite nutjob – McCain supporting pastor, John “Hitler was a hunter sent by God to chase the Jews out of Europe” Hagee. Strange bedfellows one would assume, that is until you dig a little deeper into the relationship between the Zionists, the Bush administration Neocons, and the Christian fundamentalists.

The Neocons, and their well healed “Clash of Civilization/Islamacists vs. West” narrative collaborators, have a large-scale propaganda fight to win. If enough of the U.S. electorate starts to connect enough dots, and uncovers their crafty machinations, the jig is up. Great nations must have a powerful and ominous enemy to solidify national cohesion, and to guarantee a profitable military-industrial complex. Without a segment of the global population to hate, how can you justify a half-trillion dollar defense budget?

If the threat does not exist, it must be created. We can thank Zbigniew Brzezinski (Barack Obama’s foreign policy adviser), in part, for manufacturing our current bogeyman (Al Qaeda) with Operation Cyclone. In Afghanistan, The U.S. government “spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings. The primers, which were filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines, have served since then as the Afghan school system’s core curriculum (source: The Washington Post). In other words, your tax dollars were spent on radicalizing youth in a foreign country to create a threat to the Western world.

The Republicans, desperate to ensure a 2008 presidential election victory, have enlisted this newly minted secretive 501(c)(3) to provoke anti-Muslim fervor. The aim is to perpetuate fear in the hearts of Americans regarding the Islamic West-hating menace in order to get out the angry “War of Terror” anti-Muslim bigot vote. An underhanded and nefarious tactic to be sure, but would you expect anything less from the war party and John McCain?

Terrorism is in good part an effect of government propaganda; it serves to deflect attention from governmental abuse towards a mostly imagined, highly dangerous outside enemy ~ Mark Poster

Mass Media Mind Manipulation and the World of Illusion

Randy Lavello June 2 2003

The main concept of mind control, in the book 1984, was to cause a person to ‘doublethink.’ Orwell explains ‘doublethink’ as a willingness “to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed.”

For example, the U.S. places Saddam Hussein in power, arms him to the teeth, then declares him a menace to the world and attacks him. We are supposed to forget that Donald Rumsfeld handed Saddam a briefcase – the Weapons of Mass Destruction kit! If I hand a person a gun, then shoot him, does that make me a hero? We are supposed to ‘doublethink’ and not care how many times the Federal Government lies to us, yet still believe every word they say at present. When our nation blows something up it is called an ‘operation.’ When anyone else blows something up it is called ‘terrorism.’ By this interpretation, terrorism is defined as using a bomb without dropping it from a plane or delivering it by missile! Because they don’t spend the money on the high-tech gear, they’re terrorists!

Openly admitted, for the record, the tax-exempt foundations which determine what and how American children learn have tried to manipulate attitudes toward a socialist model – specifically the Soviet Union. What are some alterations which would favor this change in attitude? In the Soviet Union there were no guaranteed rights, freedom of political expression was outlawed, the government regimented all aspects of life, and religion was systematically abolished in favor of the belief in atheism.

The wealthiest men of our nation are in control of our education system. Our schools teach curriculums created by the Ford Foundation, Carnegie Endowment, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Guggenheim Foundation. While President of the Ford Foundation in 1954, Rowan Gaither explained the Foundation’s mandate: “… we operate in response to directives, the substance of which is that we shall use our grant making power to alter life in the United States so that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.”

Our “education” system is not the poorest in the world by coincidence; neither is it because Americans are of sub-normal intelligence. The school system is designed to dumb students down – to teach them to memorize and obey, instead of teaching them to think for themselves. Add to the equation the intelligence-insulting media, which couldn’t say a three syllable word if this were desired, and we have a system of idiocy manufacturing cattle. All this is no accident. This has been perpetuated upon us with the intent of degrading our mental attributes for the purpose of exploitation. The veil hiding these wealthy puppet-masters with their tax-exempt ‘educational’ foundations and mass media must be lifted if we are to win this spiritual battle.

The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer ~ Henry Kissinger
