Note: A recent cyber-attack on our site, Noahide.com, was conducted by overt anti-Semites who successfully managed to cause our site to go down for nearly 24 hours. We've now enhanced security to block similar future attacks. But it's clear that enemies of the Jewish people very much want to silence our site the same goal pursued by traitors within Jewish ranks who are collaborating with those enemies by conducting smear campaigns against our work.
Their plans are failing as the interest in JAHG-USA and its sites continues to grow. G-d sets for us "a table directly in front of [our] enemies" (Ps. 23:5), and they shall stumble and fall while JAHG-USA shall only continue to go "from strength to strength" in bringing Moshiach and the annihilation of Amalek.

"Issues of World War III" Survey
"Should we increase funding for projects that finance self-help programs in poor villages around the world?" While one third of responding readers favored such microfinance programs, the remainder distrusted that approach and advocated using other methods to alleviate Third World poverty (though not always specifying their approach). The proffered alternatives for the Third World included industrial investment, eliminating socialism and promoting capitalism, free trade, and educational programs.
Microfinance is a relatively new approach to foreign aid, ostensibly designed to lift the very poorest rural villagers throughout the world out of their poverty. Instead of providing grants or loans to governments or large institutions, microfinance offers regular-interest loans to the villagers themselves, who lack the collateral to secure loans for development.
That almost sounds good, until you look at the fine print.
The grandfather of microfinance institutions is the Foundation for International Community Assistance (FINCA). Founded in 1984, FINCA International has thousands of employees and assets of well over $100 million, provided mostly by the foreign aid program of the U.S. State Department, and operates in nearly two dozen countries.
What exactly are FINCA and similar institutions accomplishing with American tax dollars?
- The loans to individuals are far too tiny to build new factories or industrial production. At best, a few clients are able to build tiny businesses of their own, far too small to change the economy of their areas. And many clients depend on the loans just for the consumption of basic necessities, after which they must pay back both the principal and interest.
- FINCA overwhelmingly favors women over men for its loans, thus deliberately working to make women independent of their husbands and systematically promoting breakdown of the family unit. Astonishingly, FINCA boasts about this feminist, anti-male bias!
- The loans are not made directly to individuals, but rather grants are given to newly established village banking collectives. The entire village becomes responsible for paying back each person's loan, creating a mechanism that, at best, fuels irresponsible collectivism and encourages a spiraling debt load for the village, or else consumption at the expense of infrastructure; worse, the system traps the villagers in a cycle of dependence on whoever runs the banking collectives undoubtedly Communist cadre in many or most areas.
- Indeed, FINCA specifically forces villagers to participate in "motivation and adult education" activities, even checking to ensure "client attendance." In the modern climate of cadre from Cuba and other Communist countries infiltrating rural villages throughout the Third World, you can be absolutely sure these are nothing more than Marxist brainwashing sessions to induct villagers into Communist revolution. Microfinance programs may account for much of the revolutionary and terrorist activity by helpless, dependent villagers in Bolivia, Venezuela, Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and other countries, some of which FINCA operates in. Once indebted and under the control of radicalized village collectives, the peasants have no choice but to participate in the revolution, or else face a cutoff of basic services.
- In line with this, FINCA operates its banking programs in Jordan, where most people are "palestinian" Arabs. The PLO and its ally Hamas have secured their iron-fisted death grip on palestinian Arabs by controlling all basic social services, and there is no doubt the PLO and Hamas are running FINCA's Jordanian programs, whether openly or secretly.
- FINCA uses money from tax-exempt foundations to promote socialized medicine among the already-poor villagers who can hardly afford the devastating double-blow of toxic, deadly "medicine" and spiraling health costs. FINCA programs brainwash villagers into believing they face an "AIDS crisis" and must take measures against the (harmless) HIV virus, presumably including the immune system-destroying AZT and similar poisonous drugs that actually cause AIDS; they also use subsidized health insurance to lure villagers into collective medical programs that (1) force the villagers to take the same useless, toxic "medicine" used in American hospitals, and (2) to participate in the same kind of collective health-coverage programs that are driving up medical costs wildly in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
- FINCA, and probably many other microfinance institutions, also operate in Communist Bloc nations such as Soviet Russia and other Soviet republics, Nicaragua, and the Congo. In effect, U.S. foreign aid is being laundered through these institutions to subsidize Communist militarization and police state control, in the guise of helping poor villagers.
Local Communist revolutionaries wouldn't have a hard time infiltrating and controlling FINCA's village collective banks. Many of FINCA's local representatives are educated locals the very ones most likely to have been radicalized by Marxist teachers or professors, often Cubans, at schools or universities.
FINCA's founder is himself part of the problem. John Hatch, an economist and foreign aid consultant, originally spent years in the radical Peace Corps, known for its assistance to Communist revolution around the world and as a breeding ground for Marxists. Hatch further received a Fulbright grant during his graduate school years, and clearly favored primitive, subsistence farming cooperatives of poor peasants rather than modern, industrialized agriculture that provides abundant food for everyone.
(The Fulbright grants, funded by the heavily Communist-infiltrated State Department and other subversive sources, were named after the notorious Senator J. William Fulbright, a Leftist so extreme that he adored Soviet dictator Josef Stalin and his ruthless Communist system, fought hard to shut down all investigations of Communist infiltrators in the U.S. government, enthusiastically advocated a world government under the control of the Communist-dominated United Nations, wrote a secret memo later exposed that initiated a policy of silencing anti-Communist officers in the military and purging them out, virulently supported the PLO revolution and bitterly denounced Israel, and was so favored by the Soviet Union that it published his book in Russian. In other words, Fulbright was presumably a Communist agent himself. And the scholarships that bear his name have consistently produced Leftists who go on to infiltrate prominent institutions, always supporting the Fabian Socialist and Marxist agendas.)
So Hatch, who continued to manage FINCA until two years ago, undoubtedly made a point of hiring the most dangerous Marxist subversives as his FINCA representatives around the world. And the same can be presumed of other microfinance institutions, which are largely imitations of FINCA.
Relevant Torah Principles:
1) Providing interest-free loans is a form of tzedaka (charity) under Torah Law, superior to ordinary giving because it can help a person become financially independent. Torah law requires giving such loans to Jews and to Gerei Toshav (gentiles who have formally accepted the Noahide Laws), but not to idolatrous gentiles; however, the rabbis enacted obligations to give tzedaka to idolatrous gentiles as well, in order to teach them that the ways of Torah are the ways of pleasantness and peace that the theocratic law of Torah strengthens society and benefits people.
2) Providing gainful employment to the poor is even a higher form of tzedaka under Torah Law. Thus investment in creating businesses that increase productivity, provide abundant goods and services, and employ more people is valued even more highly than interest-free loans, for it creates even better financial independence.
3) The Messianic Era will be characterized by an end to poverty through an overwhelming abundance of production. The world began openly preparing for that time already by the early 1800s through the industrial revolution and the rise of capitalism, which have created an abundance of material prosperity never before seen in all history. The coming of Moshiach (the Messiah) will complete the process of removing Socialist barriers to capitalist production, leaving the world awash in wealth and forever eradicating poverty.
Microfinance institutions are little more than fronts for providing U.S. foreign aid to Communist-dominated village collectives, thus fueling revolution and terrorism throughout the Third World. And even when radicals do not control banking collectives, the aid is largely wasted in failing to transform the local economies in a positive way.
Instead, what is needed is large-scale investment in industrial production, building factories and industrialized agriculture that will replace subsistence farming and local cooperatives. The lives of poor villagers will improve drastically once husbands and fathers can work in industry and their societies become flooded with the new consumer goods. They need serious capital infrastructure, not "feel-good" microbanks that trap them under Communist influence.
And now for this week's survey question:
|Some religious movements are advocating more humane treatment of animals, especially in farming and slaughtering. How much should we improve the animals' conditions?
(1) Not at all; they're not humans.
(2) There must be drastic improvements.
(3) Animals shouldn't be slaughtered at all; vegetarianism is preferable.

This week: More Treason by Rabbi Shlomo Amar, part 1
Our recent Subversion Alerts might give the impression that Israel's chief Ashkenazic Rabbi Yona Metzger, the bogus "Sanhedrin," and the Communist-front Root and Branch Association (R & B) are monopolizing the interfaith destruction of Judaism. However, they're not alone.
We've previously covered some ecumenical subversion by Israel's chief Sephardic rabbi, Shlomo Amar. But we didn't realize the extent of his anti-Semitic work, which he tends to keep in lower profile than does Yona Metzger.
Let us introduce you to yet another ecumenical Communist front, the World Council of Religious Leaders (WCRL). Formally established in 2002 at a meeting in Thailand (but an outgrowth of conferences since 2000), the Council functions as an informal arm of the Communist-controlled United Nations (UN), officially dedicating itself to promoting the UN, its agencies, and its Marxist agenda. The Council's own agenda is centered around the subversive interfaith merger of all religions into a New World Order anti-religion working toward "the creation of a community of world religions," in its own words, another way of referring to Soviet dictator Vladimir Putin's ambition of creating a worldwide umbrella of all religions under the control of the KGB secret police.
The Council spews forth the Marxist goals typical of all such interfaith fronts, including Socialist destruction of economies, environmental assaults on industrial production, disarmament of non-Communist governments, etc., etc. Those aims reflect perfectly the composition of the WCRL's official advisors and directors, a disgusting assortment of leaders from Communist Yugoslavia, Communist Zambia, Communist Iran, and Red China together with Marxist "leaders" of Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity.
And Rabbi Shlomo Amar, representing Judaism not just as an advisor to the Council, but as one of its co-chairmen!
But wait there's more! Like the Soviet KGB, the WCRL takes a particular interest in promoting the PLO revolution against Israel, trying to unite all religions under the UN banner to pressure Israel to stop defending itself and, well, just surrender. It's all for the sake of peace, you understand. Shlomo Amar was delighted to lend his name to that effort.
Amar also has other ways of supporting Yassir Arafat's PLO and the Soviet drive for interfaith religious merger.
To be continued
(Note: The underground Communist apparatus and its aboveground tentacles are actively engaged in subversion in all sectors and institutions of society today. Its agents would dearly love to know the full extent of our information, which would assist their disinformation efforts. Consequently, we do not divulge all our facts or sources. These profiles are intended only as a warning to the wise to monitor the individuals and groups exposed here, and to avoid their influence.)
This Week's Update at Hasidic University
The newest update of our sister site, Hasidic University, features 31 new profiles regarding the Noahide Laws:
- Blasphemy Seven commandments newly listed. The prohibition against anyone but levitical priests eating terumah, and the possible requirements for a gentile who chooses to set aside and eat maaser sheni (the second tithe on Israeli produce).
- General Two commandments newly listed. To what extent gentiles are required to give tzedaka (charity), and to what extent it may be optional.
- Optional Twelve commandments newly listed. Under Torah Law, gentiles cannot set aside priestly portions or tithes with a status of holiness, but rabbinical enactments have enabled them to do so anyway. Also, Torah Law does allow a gentile to sanctify a trees fourth-year fruits.
- Inapplicable Ten commandments newly listed. The rabbis did not enact any special provisions for gentiles concerning the first fruits or challah, so non-Jews have no way to perform those commandments. And even though gentiles can make certain tithes, they cannot say the recital over them.
YOUR TIME IS NEEDED MORE BADLY THAN YOUR MONEY!
We need more volunteers, Israeli as much as American, to approach nervous, spineless "refusenik" rabbis to ask them why they refused, and to lobby them to change their mind. With even just a little pressure, we can quickly turn many of them to endorse the PLO-defunding campaign. Let us know that you're ready to help by visiting our volunteer page at www.plo.attacreport.com/volunteer.php
Summary of PLO-related terror attacks these last two weeks, Wednesday (December 26) through Tuesday (January 8):
- Palestine Liberation Movement (Fatah): The PLO's main group continued its genocide against palestinian Arabs in the Gaza Strip, gunning down at least 2 Arab civilians in cooperation with its ally, Hamas (for the record, the massacre was described in the news media as collateral damage of an alleged gun battle between the two allied groups. Not that the media knows; they're totally dependent on the PLO and Hamas for all information, now that the PLO-occupied Gaza has been sealed off to outsiders. The truth is, we don't know how many hundreds or thousands of Arabs the PLO could be murdering, and even if the information would be available, the media downplays all reports of massacres of Arabs by the PLO.)
To placate Americans and maintain the flow of Uncle Sam's money, the PLO announced it was "abolishing" Fatah's armed militias, especially the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. For their part, the Brigades laughed at the joke and boasted that they continue to operate with the PLO's full blessing. And operate they did. They openly took credit for firing a Qassam-type missile in the West Bank (usually they're launched from Gaza, on the other side of Israel); another two such missiles were intercepted before they could be fired. A suicide bombing planned by the "non-existent" Al-Aqsa Brigades was blocked by alert Israeli soldiers. The "non-existent" Brigades were caught firing anti-tank missiles and guns at Israeli soldiers. And the Al-Aqsa Brigades took credit for gunning down two young Israelis in cold blood (and injuring their female companion) until the PLO realized the public outcry was too strong and could put a crimp in the U.S. gravy train. So the Fatah-funded Islamic Jihad and Hamas stepped forward days later to take credit instead; when even that proved too dangerous to the PLO's income, the PLO declared that no terrorists had done the attack at all! (They insisted it was just some personal dispute.) Meanwhile, Israeli intelligence discovered that the Al-Aqsa Brigades members who had done the attack were on the payroll of the Palestinian Authority (PA), one of them as a "police officer" thus directly funded by Uncle Sam!
- Palestinian Authority (PA): In addition to the above-mentioned murders, Al-Aqsa Brigades members doubling as PA "police" were involved with the Qassam missiles in the West Bank, as well as with the failed suicide bombing attempt mentioned above. In fact, the PA publicly declared that, instead of arresting and prosecuting members of Fatah's Al-Aqsa Brigades, those terrorists were all all of them now officially being incorporated as "police" forces for the PA. Now you know why palestinian Arabs in Jerusalem are furiously fighting the Israeli government's treasonous negotiations to give the PLO and PA control over East Jerusalem; they would much rather live under the Israeli rule of law and order than under a bunch of Communist thugs dressed in "police" uniforms.
- Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine General Command (PFLP-GC): The Popular Front took full credit for launching a longer-range, more deadly Grad Katyusha missile into Israel from the Gaza Strip. The PFLP-GC, a full PLO member for decades, is an overtly Marxist-Leninist offshoot of the PFLP of George Habash, also part of the PLO; the PFLP-GC's founder and leader, Ahmed Jibril, has been identified as being an officer in the Soviet Russian KGB secret police. The Katyusha missile they fired was of classic Soviet Russian design, and at first the Israeli military declared it had come from Russia; later, perhaps under political pressure, they declared the missile to have been supplied by Iran, itself a proxy regime under Soviet Russian control. Either way, it's the Soviets who are using American tax dollars to finance their terrorism and pave the way for a future Soviet invasion of Israel.
- Islamic Jihad Movement: A semi-formal member of the PLO umbrella operating under direct Fatah control, the Jihad group exploited its false image of not being part of the PLO to take credit for numerous attacks, thus diverting attention from its PLO masters. Qassam missiles, bombs, gun attacks they took the blame for almost everything. They even jumped in to take credit for Fatah's murder of two young Israelis, and also for the Katyusha missile fired by the PFLP-GC. It was all a lot more than the tiny Islamic Jihad could possibly have done, even with full PLO support.
- Popular Resistance Committees (PRC): Essentially just a front for Fatah operations without the Fatah name, the PRC took credit for all kinds of missiles Qassams, the Katyusha fired by the PFLP-GC, anti-tank missiles, you name it. And they were involved in a gun battle with Israeli troops in the Gaza. Fatah prefers to use the PRC name when they think their actions might upset Americans. They need your money, lots of it.
- Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas): Though admittedly funded up to its eyeballs in American dollars supplied by Fatah, Hamas continued to pretend to dislike its PLO employer. And it eagerly played the "me, too" game of stealing credit from the PLO for anti-tank missiles, an attempted bombing, and lots and lots of gun battles with Israeli troops. But, as they themselves have admitted, many "Hamas" terrorists are actually Fatah members under a different label.
- International Solidarity Movement (ISM): A riot by "left-wing activists" probably involved the ISM, an overtly Marxist-Leninist American group working closely with the PLO. One of their favorite pastimes is conducting riots in Israel.
- Hezbollah: Two Soviet Russian Katyusha missiles were fired from Lebanon into northern Israel. Credit was taken in the name of a totally unknown group. That's an old tactic of Hezbollah, when they're testing the waters but afraid of potential backlash. Hezbollah, as we've previously noted, is itself an offshoot of the PLO's Force 17, an elite terror unit previously under Yassir Arafat's control. Hezbollah continues to coordinate its activities closely with its PLO masters.
The Bush Administration, dominated by the Fabian Socialist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), is working around the clock to override American sympathy for Israel and instead to assist the Communist PLO revolution. Now is the time to throw a monkey wrench in the machinery of betrayal. Find out how you can help JAHG-USA's PLO-defunding campaign by visiting our site, www.plo.attacreport.com/volunteer.php.

Behind the "Al Qaeda" Mask, Part 9
Soviet Russia's Plans for WWIII
Since the time America withdrew from the war in Vietnam, the Communist Bloc has had the strategic aim of drawing the U.S. into another quagmire war, this time in the Middle East and adjoining areas. The object is to spread thin American military forces, tying them down in a variety of local conflicts against invisible, undefined enemies under rules of engagement that prevent any possibility of victory. This would paralyze the U.S. while the Communist Bloc expands aggressively, and would drain the American economy and resources while a third world war looms ever closer.
George Habash, the openly Marxist-Leninist head of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and the PLO's leading Communist theoretician, announced the plans for this quagmire war in the 1970s. Top Soviet KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn revealed essentially the same in his 1984 book, New Lies for Old, and explicitly said so in a 1990 memo.
But the only way to prevent the superior American forces from striking hard at the real Communist enemy was to create an imaginary "Islamist" enemy that would constantly strike, then retreat into the shadows without ever requiring bases, headquarters, a clear command structure, or any other identifiable target. The Americans would naively side with many of the Communists in order to fight the bogus enemy, constantly wondering why victory seems impossible.
The existence of the "Islamist" bogeyman is based almost entirely on disinformation directly from Communist-Bloc intelligence services, including Libya, Syria, Egypt, Yemen, Soviet Russia, Bulgaria, and Romania. The imaginary network has been given such names as the World Front for Jihad against Jews and Crusaders, the World Islamic Front, or, in the language of the pro-Communist Bush Administration, "Al Qaeda." The shifting definition of that phantom menace has included (a) real terrorist groups that are Communist, not Muslim; (b) non-existent ghost organizations operated by Communist intelligence agencies; and (c) Communist networks of logistical support for terrorists, which provide money, materials, phony IDs, and other resources but which do not carry out terrorism themselves. For example:
- Fatah al-Islam, as we have previously reviewed, is nothing but an offshoot of the PLO's Fatah, operating under the control of Syria's Communist regime and now beginning to work in Israel's Gaza Strip in coordination with its PLO mentors.
- The Army of Islam, as we also reviewed, is nothing but a front name for part of the PLO's Fatah organization in Israel's Gaza Strip.
- The Islamic Group and Egyptian Islamic Jihad, as we previously demonstrated, are ghost organizations under the control of Communist Egyptian Intelligence.
- The Abu Sayyaf, in the Philippines, is merely a branch of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), itself a branch of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), all of which are supported by the Communist Bloc and work closely with the New People's Army (NPA), the armed wing of the Communist Party that aims to overthrow the Philippine government.
- The Armed Islamic Group and similar organizations in Algeria have been nothing but ghost organizations run by the Communist Algerian secret police and military forces.
- The Kosovo Liberation Army (KSA) is another ghost organization run by Communist intelligence services in Yugoslavia and Albania.
- Various Chechen guerrilla movements are also ghost organizations run by the Soviet Russian KGB (now known as the FSB).
- Similar ghost movements are operated by Communist intelligence services in Uzbekistan and other Soviet republics.
- Bogus "Islamist" groups in Somalia are operated by the Communist regimes of Eritrea, Yemen, and other countries.
- The logistical supply network for the Communist Baath Party underground in Iraq is now labelled "Al Qaeda," and U.S. soldiers are being forced by the Bush Administration and treasonous commanders to pursue a wild goose chase after non-existent "Islamist" groups while actually assisting their real Baathist enemy, which is under Soviet control.
- The Taliban in Afghanistan, backed by Red China and the Soviet KGB, was merely a new front for members of the former Afghan Communist regime.
- Usama bin Laden, a banker and smuggler with no terrorist group of his own but who provides logistical support to other groups, is merely an agent of Iranian intelligence, itself a proxy for the Soviet KGB. Under Soviet Russian orders, Bin Laden helps coordinate Communist Bloc aid to the PLO, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and other Marxist-Leninist terror groups and periodically issues press releases pretending to run "Islamist" networks.
- There are many others, all with similar stories.
Disguised as this "Islamist" phantom menace, Communist Bloc secret services have repeatedly launched highly professional terror attacks against U.S. targets in order to pull America into the Middle East in a war against that phantom enemy. Often together with the PLO, the intelligence services of Communist Iraq (in the time of Saddam Hussein), Czechoslovakia, Iran, Syria, Yemen, and Egypt:
- set off the 1993 explosion in New York's World Trade Center;
- killed American soldiers in the 1996 destruction of the Khobar Towers in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia;
- probably destroyed TWA flight 800 over New York in 1996;
- destroyed two U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998; and
- damaged the U.S.S. Cole in Yemen in 2000.
Torah prophecy, as found in the Hebrew Scriptures and the rabbinical traditions, has also forewarned of a third world war in the Middle East, with Israel as the ultimate target. The armies of Gog and Magog (i.e., the Communist Bloc), led by Russia, would try to maneuver all the nations into a grand assault on the Jewish nation. But before they can succeed in wiping out the Jewish people, G-d's Hand of judgment will strike. The armies of Gog and Magog will self-destruct, the Jewish nation and its supporters will be rescued, and a king of the House of David will institute the Messianic Era of world theocracy.
The Communists can make their plans, but they have no control over their own success or lack thereof.
