"Issues of World War III" Survey
"What should be done to prevent tuberculosis patients from exposing others to the bacterium?" There was absolutely no consensus among readers in answering this question. Half of respondents thought the problem was overstated, while the other half gave answers ranging from sheer confusion to calling for more aggressive medical solutions to TB. Comments were generally sparse, and came mainly from the "no worries" camp; quoting them either wouldn't add much, or would just reflect information in our article below.
The issue of tuberculosis (TB) was recently highlighted by the case of Atlanta, Georgia lawyer Andrew Speaker, who was diagnosed with a severe form of the disease while flying to Europe and back. He is now locked up in quarantine and forced treatment while panicky Public Health officials have been frightening Speaker's fellow airline passengers with the notion they, too, may be infected. A border control agent is on leave pending investigation for having allowed Speaker back into the United States without confining him. And a jittery Congress is pondering future measures to avoid a devastating TB plague.
TB is a disease primarily of the lungs, which can spread through coughing or sneezing. Until the twentieth century, it was the leading cause of death among Americans and Europeans. These facts have formed the justification for draconian measures of control whenever a person tests positive for the TB bacteria.
But Andrew Speaker's case is also a warning against TB-control policies. The news media was forced to admit that the tanned, healthy man was never actually sick with the disease, not to this very day; he was only infected with the bacterium. At first, before Speaker traveled to Europe for his honeymoon, he was correctly told he was neither at risk nor contagious to anyone else. It was only after he left the U.S. that Public Health radicals at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) decided to override the evidence and declare an international emergency in conjunction with the United Nations (UN)-affiliated World Health Organization (WHO). The temptation to scare the living daylights out of millions of Americans was simply too juicy to resist.
Using sloppy testing, the CDC proclaimed that Speaker was carrying the special XDR strain of TB, supposedly a virulent and nearly incurable form of the germ. On that basis, they activated special federal government emergency powers to have Speaker forcibly imprisoned in a hospital for months, undergoing dangerous "therapy" using toxic Isoquinoline drugs that can ruin a person's health.
Now it turns out that the whole thing was a sham. In addition to being perfectly healthy, Speaker didn't even carry the XDR-TB strain, but rather a less dangerous MDR form. In retrospect, many health officials are seriously questioning the CDC's handling of the entire episode, causing many to wonder if Public Health powers are being abused.
Medical statistics paint a totally different picture of TB. In America, millions of people have been infected with the TB bacterium, but fewer than 15,000 per year develop the disease; in over 99 percent of infected people, their immune systems simply neutralize the germ without the person ever having any symptoms at all. Of those whose immune systems are not as strong and who thus become ill, only about 5 percent die. That's a miniscule fraction, similar to worldwide figures (which are a bit higher, but not severely so).
Public Health propagandists justify their emergency TB powers by claiming that their measures were responsible for eliminating TB as a threat to modern populations, and that if they aren't allowed to act aggressively, TB could return as a deadly plague at any time. The historical record refutes that idea, however: Tuberculosis had already lost at least 90 percent of its deadliness during the century before any drug treatments or vaccines were available (in the 1940s and 1950s), and the introduction of those medical therapies had no effect on the continuing decline of TB illness and death. The growth of capitalism, the industrial revolution, and prosperity solved the TB problem without any medical help, and the medicine proved worthless anyway. So a total elimination of all Public Health agencies and interventions would mean absolutely nothing as far as TB is concerned. It would remain an irrelevant disease.
Only two groups have higher illness and death rates from TB: (1) People from less capitalist, less industrial societies who are slightly more susceptible to the germ, and (2) heavy drug users, especially cocaine addicts and homosexual men (who use dozens of the most dangerous recreational drugs known to man). Drug users have devastated their immune systems through years of chemical abuse, leaving themselves open to the ravaging effects of a germ that has little or no effect on the rest of us. Doctors find their treatments to be useless in these drug addicts, whose immune systems are shot. But Public Health officials, determined to justify radical Marxist medical policies, ignore the drug abuse and instead blame certain strains of TB as being more "deadly" (MDR-TB and XDR-TB).
It isn't the germ, it's the patient's lack of immune protection. That's why Andrew Speaker carries the so-called "MDR" strain of TB (and was originally thought to be carrying XDR), yet is perfectly healthy. But a long-time drug user would be in trouble with any strain of TB. The notion of "deadly" or especially "virulent" strains of TB is simply a myth.
Relevant Torah Principles:
1) Fundamentally, a person's health comes from spiritual factors such as attitude, not from medical treatments. This principle is reflected in traditional codifications of Jewish Law. The twelfth-century sage Maimonides, both an authoritative rabbi and a respected physician, focused mainly on moral and behavioral factors in health, things which affect a person's resistance to disease rather than protecting him from the disease itself (Mishneh Torah, Laws of Character Traits ch. 4). The Table of Jewish Law draws heavily from the writings of Maimonides, and directs even more attention to psychological factors related to attitude in creating healthy resistance to disease (Kitzur Shulchon Oruch, ch. 32).
2) Prophetic traditions in the Hebrew Scriptures and the writings of the sages reveal that Amalek would launch global war and revolution in the period before the arrival of Moshiach (the Messiah). The term for Amalek's armies would be the forces of "Gog and Magog." As explained by 19th-century Rabbi Samson Rafael Hirsch, the mysterious term "Gog" is related to the Hebrew word gog ("roof"), indicating that Amalek's forces would try to divorce the human race from
The Public Health movement, which originated in revolutionary France (the ancestor of Communist and Nazi revolution in our own times), was concocted as a way of promoting nihilist revolution in the guise of medical science. Its object is to exploit fear of disease to manipulate people into a spiritual trap, one that causes its victims to repudiate

Interfaith Subversion Update, Part 10 the phony "Sanhedrin"
As we've seen in the last nine issues of this newsletter, the central locus of the world interfaith movement is in Moscow. From the Kremlin emanate all the myriad efforts for ecumenical merging of the world's religions, with innumerable Communist agents carefully guiding all the loose pieces toward a convergence for Marxist revolutionary purposes. And many of those agents are now operating as Jewish "leaders," even as "orthodox rabbis."
The drive for a "New World Order" religion absolutely depends on each major religion being united under some umbrella organization that the Communists can more easily control than tens of thousands of independent clerics. The Catholic Church already has its Vatican, under a Red Pope and cardinals. Each of the Eastern Orthodox churches has its patriarchate, all of which are now heavily penetrated by the Soviet KGB. Many or most Protestant churches have been brought under the aegis of the Communist-front World Council of Churches (WCC) or the equally subversive National Association of Evangelicals (NAE). Communist Iran now largely dominates Shiite Islam.
But what about Judaism, especially genuine orthodoxy? Until now, no single leader or organization has exercised authority over all orthodox rabbis. The Communist-front Root & Branch Association (
We've already reviewed much evidence of Communist control of the "Sanhedrin." So you'd expect to hear news, sooner or later, of the "Sanhedrin" stepping forward to join the interfaith train. Many of the rabbis in the bogus "Sanhedrin" are tied to the ecumenical
Now the "Sanhedrin" itself has started officially revealing its true colors red, to be precise. Barely more than two months ago, the "Sanhedrin" tested the waters (to see if too much public opposition would be encountered) with an announcement of a grand international, interfaith meeting to be hosted by the "Sanhedrin" itself, and in Jerusalem, no less! Representatives of all governments are to be invited, including all Communist Bloc regimes (even Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran), for a conference to promote the rebuilding of the Jerusalem Temple with international, and inter-religious, help.
Professor Hillel Weiss, a member of the phony "Sanhedrin" and an affiliate of
The conference is planned for the Jewish holiday of Sukkos this September and October. Whether it actually takes place will depend, in large part, on how much outraged opposition comes from orthodox Jews (the Moscow-controlled "Sanhedrin" can't very well afford to alienate the sheep they're trying to bring under their control). But in any case, they'll keep trying again and again.
If there's one universal characteristic of Communists, it's their unyielding persistence in marching to their evil goals. Religious Jews and Hasidic Gentiles will have to develop an equivalent mesirus nefesh (martyrdom) to defeat the deadly interfaith schemes. Judaism itself, and the Jewish people, are the primary targets.

Behind the "Al Qaeda" Mask
Part 1: False Rumors from Lebanon
It isn't easy for the Communists to create the specter of a "global Islamist threat" big enough to hide the growing tide of international Marxist-Leninist revolution. It requires that they either take measures to re-paint some of their terrorist activities as emanating from "jihadist Muslims," or that they fabricate entire conflicts out of thin air, under controlled conditions such as inside a Communist country, where the all-pervasive secret police and military forces can control all variables and create fantastic illusions for outsiders.
That's the approach they're using in Lebanon. To hear the news-media spectacle in recent months, you'd think there's a growing network of insanely suicidal jihadis, waging war from the palestinian Arab refugee camps, with magical access to unlimited supplies of funding, training, and weapons. The only solution is for Uncle Sam (Uncle Sap?) to run to the rescue with lots and lots of money and military aid for the Communist regime in Beirut, before the deadly "jihadi" virus can spread throughout the Middle East.
That alone should be smelling fishier to you than a seafood market in Tokyo.
The main group behind the alleged "fighting" with Lebanese forces is called Fatah al-Islam, or "Islamic Fatah." That the name bears a suspicious resemblance to the main group of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) is no coincidence; Fatah al-Islam is nothing but a branch of Fatah al-Intifadah ("Fatah Uprising"), itself a splinter faction of the PLO's original Fatah ("Fatah" is an Arabic acronym for "Palestine Liberation Movement").
Fatah Uprising, so the story goes, split from Yassir Arafat's Fatah in the mid-1980s over trivial "differences" and continued operating in the palestinian Arab refugee camps in Lebanon. Communist movements have a long-standing habit of promoting organizational "splits" for tactical purposes, mainly to confuse outsiders, and the internal Fatah argument was no different. Fatah Uprising continued to be sponsored by the Soviet Russians through their proxy Communist regime in Syria, the same one that supports the rest of the PLO. The phony "split" having exhausted its tactical utility, Fatah Uprising finally merged back into the PLO last month, being officially reabsorbed into Fatah.
Fatah Uprising's splinter group, Fatah al-Islam, likewise has continued with Soviet Russian support via Syria; its leader, Shakir al-Abssi, is headquartered directly in Damascus, under obvious control of the Syrian secret police. The Lebanese government itself freely acknowledges that the group operates under Syrian control and support. For that matter, the Syrian weapons and other logistical support couldn't flow so freely to the group without the active participation of the Lebanese military itself, even while it pretends to "fight" the group. Even the Communist-controlled United Nations (UN) admitted that the Lebanese weren't making any serious effort to prevent the continual flow of Syrian weapons into the country. And members of Fatah al-Islam have been remarkably free to enter and leave the country for training in Syria.
