Wendy Campbell vs Michael Moore
I decided to re-visit this article which I had originally written immediately after I saw Michael Moore's "daring" documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" when it first came out in July, 2004. I've decided to update it because the issues are still timely and as of yet unresolved. And on top of that, whenever I tell people I have made some political documentaries, they often ask me "Oh, like Michael Moore?", I say, something like "Something like that, but much more daring. It's actually much more politically hot. Much more relevant. Check out my website http://www.marwenmedia.com <http://www.SFIMC.ORG/> ."
Please note how many people are still under the impression that Michael Moore is somehow daring. It makes me laugh to think that people think that. Then again it make me angry. It makes me sad. Finally, though, I do think many people are starting to get the real picture. And that makes me feel cautiously optimistic.
Michael Moore's cowardice (and avarice) reveals itself in many ways, although he pretends to be your average person, and a good Christian on top of that. For example, Michael Moore himself, and many others, seem to be impressed with his "courage" to chase down and harass the aging Charlton Heston in his documentary "Bowling for Columbine", because Heston was the figurehead for the National Rifle Association. Hey, I'm not into guns myself. In fact, if any guy I have dated in the past has ever told me he has bought a gun, my first reaction is alarm and to run the other direction. But the fact is, that in some situations, it is a citizen's right to have a gun, especially in certain situations, such as if you live out in the middle of the Wyoming wilderness for one example.
Interesting side-notes: Do you realize that the massacre at Columbine would probably have been called a "hate-crime" if the criminals were Arab or Muslim, or even Christian Fundamentalists? But if you do a google-search, you will discover that the criminals who committed that massacre were of a certain ethnicity/religion that rarely, if ever, seems to be mentioned in connection with "hate-crimes". Hint: it starts with a "J". Ever wonder why some kinds of "hate-crimes" are worse than other "hate-crimes"?
Ever wonder why magazines such as "Vanity Fair" will write a huge article about the alleged rape scandal at Duke and emphasize that the perhaps guilty men were Christian, even showing a photo of the chapel at Duke in the article, YET they have chosen NOT to do a huge story of the young Jewish men who were guilty of burning many churches in the South earlier this year, and it is certain that they would NEVER include a photo of a synagogue?
In the same issue of "Vanity Fair" (June 2006) notice how they feature an in-depth article entitled "The War They Wanted" by Craig Unger, who is obviously a Zionist and probably Jewish, never once mentions the Israeli connection to the war "they wanted"? Certainly "Vanity Fair" has put its voluntary and obligatory blindfolds on with regards to that one, as is typical of the rest of Zionized US media. Certainly "Vanity Fair" seems intent on countering the courageous and important paper about the Israel Lobby and its push for the war on Iraq ("The Israel Lobby") written by Ivy league professors Mearshiemer and Walt, which has been predictably uniformly ignored by "Vanity Fair" and the rest of the Zionized US media. "They" are doing their best to make sure that the Israeli connection goes down into the Memory Hole. Typical, so typical.
What would really have been a courageous act is for Michael Moore to have chased down and harassed Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon (before he went to the hospital, of course) and asked him a few questions, or perhaps Elie Weisal, whom many people accuse of complete and utter hypocrisy and even lying, since he does not have any tolerance for the human rights of Palestinians in their own ancestral homeland of Palestine. No, rarely does anyone do that. Why? Do you really need you really ask? Have you not noticed that is not kosher to even legitimately question and verbally challenge some people of a certain religion/ethnicity? Certainly to do so invites typical name-calling such as "anti-Semite", "Nazi", "Klan member" and such. This is an intentional, systemized attempt to censor others who might disagree with them with regards to Palestinian human rights. Apparently it works with a lot of people, and especially now that there is a Department of Anti-Semitism here in the US trying to make it a crime to criticize Israel and Zionism. Basically they want to make the entire world a criticism-free zone with regards to Israel and Zionism, yet the rest of the world is a fair target, especially Muslims and Arabs. But note how it is even more than tolerable to criticize Bush, Christian Fundamentalism, the concept of God, Jesus, Islam, and corporations.
Let's face it! Caterpillar bulldozers do NOT have minds of their own! Zionist Jews are the ones who are bulldozing Palestinian homes in order to chase them off their land so that the Zionist Jews get to take over the land for a "Greater Israel". Our politicians are giving Israel the money to terrorize the Palestinian people, billions of our tax dollars every single year, without conditions, and in fact, tacitly approving of Israel's crimes against humanity.
Let's get back to Moore's film about 9/11.
Moore's film is misleading, smug and cowardly. He picks on the easy "usual suspects" (Arabs) and ignores the driving forces behind the so-called "war on terror": Jewish Zionism (with the support of the Christian Zionists), Zionist Israel (the Jewish state of Israel) and the NeoConservatives, who are largely Jewish Americans, or you could refer to them as Israeli-Americans. Moore is like a politician who speaks out of both sides of his mouth. And he knows whom to please in order to get rich. (Side note: Madonna apparently knows how to brown-nose too, with her gushing on about the Jewish cult of Kabbalah for example, on the Larry King Show and any show that will have her. As if she doesn't have enough money already. Sharon Stone also follows suit with similar politically correct gushing about certain people of a certain ethnicity/religion. It's a great career move! No doubt about it! Especially in Hollywood! Especially for aging celebrities. Oh yeah!)
Michael Moore's documentary raises many interesting issues with regards to 9-11 and the Bush Administration, as well as the war on Iraq and Afghanistan. (Note: And now Iran and Syria are in the NeoCon's crosshairs. Syria exports no oil. Hello. By the way, the Democrats are just as bad these days. Note their silence when they should be pushing for the impeachment of Bush. They are almost all enablers, and should be forced to resign for allowing this war to happen as well as the continual erosion of our freedoms.) However, "Fahrenheit 9/11" avoids many more important, but politically hot questions.
Why does Moore focus only on the Saudis, yet never mentions the well-known role of Zionist Israel, Israeli spies and the NeoConservatives, who are mostly Zionist Jewish Americans (make that Israeli-Americans) as well as Zionist Christian Americans, in the war on Iraq? Check out the most notorious of the NeoConservative websites at http://www.newamericancentury.org <http://www.newamericancentury.org/> and see how they called for an attack on Iraq even back in 1996, and how they "needed" a Pearl Harbor-style event "to happen" to "motivate" Americans to allow such a war, where Iraq would only be the beginning of endless war (the so-called "War on Terror", when it really should be called the"War of Terror"), to achieve a Zionist-American empire. This website is also known as "Project for New America" or PNAC (Pee-Nack) for short. I hope you have heard of it by now! By the way, the NeoCons may have cleaned up their website by now, but there is plenty of information about it on the internet if you do a google-search. I highly recommend it. If you want to preserve your constitutional rights, you owe it to yourself and this country.
Here are some more questions for you to ponder
Why does Moore omit facts such as that bin Laden and Al Qaeda never even publicly claimed credit for 9-11? Yes, apparently bin Laden stated publicly he was happy about 9-11, but so too did former Israeli prime minister Netanyahu. He stated that he was happy about 9-11, since then Israel's "war on terror" or more accurately, Israel's racist ethnic cleansing campaign against indigenous non-Jewish Palestinians and neighboring Arab countries outside of Israel, would now be fought by Americans against Israel's self-made enemies. By the way, Israel's enemies are not necessarily America's enemies, especially if it weren't for America's unconditional support of Zionist Israel.
According to many sources on the internet and elsewhere, 9-11 very well could have been an "inside job" in collusion with the Mossad, and for all we know, it could be true. It could have been what is known as a "false flag" operation. Why is it taboo to explore this possibility? Why is it that an Arab conspiracy nick-named "Al Qaeda" is the only kosher conspiracy that we Americans are allowed to consider? Don't we live in a democratic country?
Ask yourself: Who has benefited most from the war on Iraq? Certainly not the Saudis, who even had to back out of the Halliburton war profits as Moore's film shows. Even the American corporations aren't getting too much out of the deal. And even Bush is getting bashed everywhere. The fact is the Israel has pushed for this war, and has to most to gain from it. They even expect to get free oil from this war, with a pipeline from Iraq to Haifa, Israel out of the deal. (Do a google search on "pipe-line from Iraq to Haifa, Israel". The Israel-firster Neo-Conservatives are pushing for this as a "bonus" for Israel's "support for the US war on Iraq!" Yet, not only is Moore too afraid to "bash" Israel for its covert, but hugely influential role in this imperial war, he's afraid to even mention Zionist Israel's and the NeoConservatives' roles in the Bush administration (and Democrats these days are just as bad). The furthest Moore goes out on this limb is to show a couple of cameos in the film of the topdog NeoConservative deputy of defense Paul Wolfowitz, without even naming him, or explaining who he is and who he represents (the NeoConservatives, and mostly Israel, apparently). Please keep in mind that it's all being financed with OUR tax dollars, WITHOUT giving us a chance to vote on it, and the Zionized US media are deliberately keeping Americans in the dark about all this.
Why does Moore not mention that at least 5 of the so-called Saudi hijackers were cases of stolen identity? ( Do a Google-search on "mistaken identity of 9-11 hijackers".) While American media under-reported this fact and even has tried to suppress it, it was widely reported in foreign media, including BBC). Therefore it is a fact that we really do not know where all the hijackers came from or who they were.
Why does Michael Moore never even mention the "dancing Israeli spies" and their suspicious behavior while videotaping the 9-11 WTC attacks and whooping it up? They were detained for a couple months by the FBI and then released on "visa violations". (Do a Google-search on "dancing Israeli spies 9-11"). There are many reports of Israeli spies who lived on the same block as the 9-11 terrorists and were engaged in suspicious activities during that time as well as recently, as a general Google search on "Israeli spies" will reveal.
Note how Michael Moore didn't include any footage in his film from the now famous Fox News 4-part series on Israeli spying in the US with Brit Hume and Carl Cameron, which was amazingly broadcast shortly after 9-11 happened, although it was deleted from their archives shortly after. Here is a link to a website that now allows you access to it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAoe26MaTew&search=fox%20news
Why does Michael Moore never mention in his film the fact that employees of Odigo, an Israeli-owned company who had offices in the WTC, were forewarned to leave the WTC offices a couple hours before the attacks (a fact confirmed in the esteemed Israeli newspaper the Ha'aretz, and even, believe it or not, The Washington Post!)? Here"s the story as printed in the Israeli newspaper The Ha'aretz:
Odigo says workers were warned of attack
Haaretz Tuesday, September 23, 2003
By Yuval Dror <email@example.com>
Odigo, the instant messaging service, says that two of its workers received messages two hours before the Twin Towers attack on September 11 predicting the attack would happen, and the company has been cooperating with Israeli and American law enforcement, including the FBI, in trying to find the original sender of the message predicting the attack.
Micha Macover, CEO of the company, said the two workers received the messages and immediately after the terror attack informed the company's management, which immediately contacted the Israeli security services, which brought in the FBI.
"I have no idea why the message was sent to these two workers, who don't know the sender. It may just have been someone who was joking and turned out they accidentally got it right. And I don't know if our information was useful in any of the arrests the FBI has made," said Macover. Odigo is a U.S.-based company whose headquarters are in New York, with offices in Herzliya.
As an instant messaging service, Odigo users are not limited to sending messages only to people on their "buddy" list, as is the case with ICQ, the other well-known Israeli instant messaging application.
Odigo usually zealously protects the privacy of its registered users, said Macover, but in this case the company took the initiative to provide the law enforcement services with the originating Internet Presence address of the message, so the FBI could track down the Internet Service Provider, and the actual sender of the original message.
Isn't this incredible? Don't you think someone in their offices might have at least called the building security? Isn't that standard procedure when you get an anonymous e-mail like that? You know, if there is ever a bomb threat or similar threat made anywhere, you notify whoever is in charge and the police come and evacuate everyone from the building. But no, this did not happen in the WTC on 9/11. Why not? This question goes unexplored in our Zionized US media. Somehow investigative journalism has gone the way of the dinosaur when it comes to anything having to do with 9-11 and Israel. I wonder why?
The fact is that Zionized US media has been covering for Israel for decades, censoring anything very negative with regards to Israel and certainly downplaying anything negative at all about Israel, in order to keep Americans blindly supporting the Jewish state, especially financially, without a peep of protest. They apparently figure that ignorance is bliss, as the saying goes.
Why does Michael Moore fail to explain how bin Laden was excommunicated from his own family and that the government of Saudi Arabia also not only permanently expelled bin Laden for his militant activities against the Saudi government, but also froze his bank accounts?
Why does Michael Moore not mention the reasons that bin Laden explained answering the famous question "why do they hate us?" By the way, it's not "because they hate our freedom"? Helllloooo! Bin Laden has many times stated that he and his colleagues consider the United States as the enemy of the Arab world because of the unconditional US support (financial, political and military) gives to the apartheid, ethnic-cleansing Jewish state of Israel, as well as the continuing stationing of US troops on Saudi Arabia's soil. The Arab world wants its freedom --- from the Zio-American imperialists! Do you really think the Arab world in Iraq or anywhere else wanted the new American crusade dubbed "The War on Terror"? If anything, this has won Islamic militants even more supporters in the Arab world.
Have you noticed how it seems more and more like it's the current US government which hates our freedoms? As in the Orwellian-named (like everything else these days with regards to whatever "our" government and media says) the "Patriot Act"? As in "our" government spying on American citizens? As in allowing certain kinds of crimes to be called "hate crimes" and others not (depending on your race, ethnicity or "religion")? There are many more examples of complete and utter hypocrisy, but let's move on
Why does Michael Moore mention the bombing of the USS Cole by Al Qaeda but does not mention the massive bombing of the USS Liberty by the Israeli army in 1967 which killed 34 US navymen and wounded 120 more? This was also almost completely suppressed by our own government and media until recently. For the details, go to: http://www.ussliberty.com <http://www.ussliberty.com/> .
Why does Michael Moore focus on the money that our government receives from Saudi Arabia, but fails to mention the billions of dollars that our US government gives to Israel every year in exchange for the massive financial political contributions from organized Zionist Jewish political committees and individuals, as well as the largely Zionist Jewish-owned and dominated US media which combined can make or break any politician who fails to continuously and constantly pledge 120% allegiance to the "security" of Israel? The US media completely dropped presidential candidate Howard Dean for even just suggesting that the US government should have a more "balanced" approach towards the Palestine-Israel conflict.
Why does Moore not mention that the Saudi Arabian government has pleaded with the American government to publicly release ALL of the pages of its findings on 9-11 that supposedly have "something to do with Saudi Arabia"? Certain people for their own certain reasons do not want this to come to light. Could it be because certain people want Americans to imagine the worst about Saudi Arabia and to then thereby serve as a convenient scapegoat for 9-11?
Why does Michael Moore fail to show footage or photos of the many occasions that President Bush has stood in front of the Israeli flag with his hand over his heart in allegiance, including at the 2004AIPAC (American Israeli Public Affairs Committee) conference where he got 22 standing ovations from Zionist Jews and their non-Jewish sycophants in the audience? By the way, since then AIPAC has been exposed and embarrassed by the arrest of two of their top brass for illegal spying on the US for Israel. Yet another story that has been downplayed in the complicit US media.
Why has Michael Moore failed to show President Bush making the claim that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon "is a man of peace" while the Israeli army continued to demolish entire sections of Palestinian cities as he spoke the words, killing scores of Palestinian civilians, as in the case of Jenin? This gave Israel the green light to continue on its massive campaign of ethnic cleansing against the indigenous non-Jewish Palestinian people. And it's still happening today, despite the Gaza pull-out, which was a publicity stunt to fool the American public in particular, but in actuality, the Israelis have turned the Gaza Strip into one big open air prison, where the inmates are continually harassed, even killed, as well as starved. When it comes to the Israelis, it's all a deceptive shell game. Meanwhile they are continuing to aggressively steal more Palestinian land in the West Bank, unilaterally making new "borders" with their massive Apartheid Wall. Again, the Zionized US media puts a veil on this to deceive the American public.
Why does Michael Moore gratuitously show a rapid clip of someone being beheaded in Saudi Arabia, but fails to show scenes such as an Israeli army Apache helicopter (courtesy of American taxpayers) dropping a one-ton bomb (again, courtesy of American taxpayers) in the middle of the night onto a crowded Palestinian apartment building, killing hundreds of innocent Palestinian civilians, including women and children, in order to kill one Palestinian militant? And Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon said publicly that he was pleased with the results of this murder spree.
Why does every Hollywood film-maker and the US media fail to address the unjust way in which Israel was created in the first place?
After WWI, Britain took over Palestine, and made empty promises to both Eastern European Zionist Jews about giving them a Jewish state in Palestine, versus promising the native, indigenous Palestinians their own sovereign state of Palestine.
After WWII, Britain "gave" Palestine, which was Arab land, over to the United Nations, which was made up of White European Christian countries, with influential Jewish politicians and bankers, who then unilaterally decided that because of the Holocaust (which happened in Europe but the Palestinians had nothing to do with it) it was somehow "moral" and "necessary" to give away the Palestinians' lands to Eastern European Zionist Jews for an ethnocentric Jewish state, without even any compensation to the displaced Palestinians, not that anyone should have to give up their land because they are not the "right" religion or ethnicity.
The war that Zionists began back in 1948 when Israel was thus created by stealing Palestinian lands for a Jewish state continues today due to unconditional support of the US government and with US taxpayers' money.
Could it be that Michael Moore ignored the major role that Israel, Zionists, the US government and specifically the NeoConservatives play in the war on "terror" (as if "war" is not "terror"!?) because he would have a hard time getting it distributed by the Weinstein brothers of Miramax, or anyone else in Hollywood for that matter (like Mel Gibson with his "The Passion")?
Could it be because Michael Moore's agent is Ari Emmanuel, whose brother is none other than Rahm Emmanuel, a former Clinton advisor, and current congressman from Illinois, and a reported to be a rabidly hyper supporter of Israel? Other rumors swirl around Rahm Emmanuel on the internet as well. We'll leave it for you to do your own internet research on that. Just Google him and see what you come up with.
Could it be that Michael Moore prefers to get rich financially rather than tell the whole truth? Why is it that he still continues to fail to address the more daring politically hot questions that have been left unasked and unanswered?
Could it be that Michael Moore is a useful and willing pawn for the Zionists, as well as a glutton for money and guilty of moral cowardice?
We must deal truthfully with all the issues involved in order to achieve justice and peace in this world. There must be equal rights for all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender in any country which our government supports, and that includes Israel. If segregation and apartheid were bad in the U.S. and in South Africa, then they are also bad in Israel.
Let's remember The Golden Rule, rather than "The Gold Rules".
By the way, I have a few movie recommendations for you that you may not have heard of (Gee, I wonder why?):
· "The Last Mogul: The Life and Times of Lew Wasserman" to get the true history of Hollywood, and see how very interconnected politics and media are. Also tellingly, one of Wasserman's favorite mottos was "Dress British, think Yiddish." See how Lew Wasserman helped put Ronald Reagan into the office of US presidency. If it wasn't made by Jewish film-maker Barry Avrich, I doubt very much that it would have gotten distributed. As it was, it got limited publicity and limited distribution.
· "Jenin, Jenin" and "Gaza Strip", both available at http://www.arabfilm.com <http://www.arabfilm.com/> See the racist persecution your tax dollars are massively supporting in apartheid Israel.
· "USS Liberty Survivors: Our Story" available at http://www.marwenmedia.com <http://www.marwenmedia.com/> . See how the history of our government's protection of Israel despite its treacherous actions, and subsequent cover-up of such. Yes, the tail does wag the dog, and has been for decades. We at MarwenMedia.com also offer: "Truth: Exposing Israeli Apartheid", "Neturei Karta: Jews Against Zionism"; "Rosa Remembers Palestine" and "Syria: Land of Friendly People and Hidden Treasure".

Please Note: There are Zionist Jewish activists in the US trying to make laws that forbid any criticism of Israel and Zionist politics. Please do your part to make sure that the Zionists do not succeed in infringing on our freedom of speech. Call your representatives today and demand that all funding for the development of the Department of Anti-Semitism be rescinded. There must be no double standards and no infringements on our freedom of speech. We must not tolerate apartheid, land-stealing and ethnic-cleansing in the Jewish state of Israel. Palestinians deserve completely equal rights too. Demand that our government stop funding Israel's war of terror on the Palestinian people!
