"Issues of World War III" Survey

"What consequences should be faced by U.S. soldiers in Iraq who killed detainees?" Answers were down this week, apparently because many readers don't know too much about this news issue. Most responses favored the soldiers and said they shouldn't be punished — or should even be rewarded — but a minority disagreed and advocated giving the soldiers the death penalty for murder. Here are excerpts of some relevant comments:

Factual Background:
Rules of civilized warfare were gradually developed over the centuries, as nations learned to fight with less barbarism and destruction against civilians. Soldiers were sent to battlefields away from cities and residential dwellings, in brightly colored uniforms for clear identification, to settle conflicts almost in the manner of a polite duel.

But then came Communism, and all the rules went out the window. Everywhere in the world, Communists instantly proved themselves to be unconditionally amoral, cutthroat, savage terrorists who specifically aimed their military force against the weak and the helpless more than on the battlefield. Women, children, the elderly, the handicapped — these became the primary targets in war, subject not just to murder, but to systematically calculated, brutal torture-murder, often involving physical dismemberment of people in front of their hysterical families for maximum terrifying effect. Murder was multiplied to genocide, the mass murder of hundreds of thousands or even millions at a time, with the aim of the total dissolution of society and civilization.

On the battlefield, Communist revolutionaries chose to hide behind civilians wherever they could, and then to blame the deaths of those hostages on the anti-Communist enemy defending themselves. Communist soldiers stopped wearing uniforms, generally preferring to disguise themselves as civilians and conducting ambushes and traps rather than conventional warfare out in the open. And once "defeated," the Communists would simply start all over again as if the war had never ended — which, in effect, it hadn't. Prisoners of war held by the Communists were either brainwashed and recruited to be secret Communist agents when they returned to their own army, or would be tortured and massacred as prisoners. Communists captured by the other side, in contrast, would bide their time until being released, and then would promptly return and murder more civilians as rapidly and brutally as possible, without the slightest remorse.

Nations under Communist attack quickly learned that one cannot leave Communist prisoners alive. The White Russian armies were forced, against their Christian ethics, to execute every single Red Army prisoner they captured. Vietnamese discovered they had to do the same, or else those prisoners would return to commit savage crimes against humanity. The same was learned by the Indonesians, the Congolese, the Chileans, the Spaniards, etc., etc. Nations that wouldn't finish the job and kill at least a large percentage of the Communists after capturing them, that showed mercy to Communist prisoners, wouldn't survive the revolution, and ultimately plunged into Communist genocide and nihilism.

The pure evil of Communism is once again being seen in Iraq. The revolution is carried out entirely by the Baathist Socialist Party network of millions, which went underground when the Americans unexpectedly won the war in 2003. As an arm of the Communist International in general, and of Soviet Russia in particular, the Baathist network functions exactly like Communists all over the world. Its terrorists today ruthlessly murder thousands of Iraqi civilians every month, including (or especially) women and children. When taking over Iraqi cities, they enforce a savage reign of terror over the population, exactly as under Saddam Hussein. When released from captivity, they return to the killing fields to spread more murder and chaos.

Iraqis themselves, who had lived under the Communist regime since 1958, knew fully well what had to be done, and widely hoped that the Americans would exterminate all Baathists at the end of the war. When the Americans didn't, the Iraqis could see the handwriting on the wall: Saddam Hussein and his Republican Guards would be returning to power, sooner or later.

American soldiers have been placed under no-win rules by the Bush Administration that guarantee they cannot win — or even protect Iraqis. Our troops were forced to abandon cities to Baathist/Communist control, to allow the terrorists to operate almost unhampered, to restrain the use of military power that would defeat the enemy, and to simply wait to be attacked and killed. They witness firsthand the horrible evil committed by the revolutionaries, and they're helpless to do anything about it.

A person with any humanity, any compassion at all, cannot continue to stand by while helpless Iraqis are butchered. Orders or no orders, a soldier with a moral conscience knows there comes a time to disobey treasonous or criminal orders. And so he knows he must kill at least the worst of those prisoners.

We don't know the details and circumstances of the soldiers accused of killing detainees, but we have a pretty good idea why they did it (assuming they did). And we know why the Bush Administration is so eager to prosecute and punish those soldiers while allowing the Baathist/Communist terrorists to roam free — because President Bush is determined to see that the Communists, and Saddam Hussein, return to power over Iraq.

Relevant Torah Principles:
1) In any war, whether for conquest or for defense, Torah Law requires Jews to fight by any means necessary to achieve victory. No restrictions may be placed on the soldiers, not even to protect civilians; every measure must be taken to win as quickly and effectively as possible. If the enemy hides behind civilians, that doesn't allow Jewish armies to hesitate in the slightest to carpet-bomb the enemy, regardless of how many civilians will be killed. Those civilians deaths are the responsibility of the terrorists who hide behind them, not of the army that fights the terrorists.

2) The Torah apparently forbids gentiles from wars of conquest, at least for the sake of conquest itself. But defensive wars are both permitted and required, and can include offensive attacks, and even conquest, for the purpose of strategic security. As long as the war is fought for such a legitimate purpose, the rules of required victory for Jews presumably apply equally to gentiles (unless fighting Jewish armies, in which case they're required to surrender, as stated explicitly in the Bible).

3) In the case of Amalek, the Torah instructs us that we must fight differently than against normal forces. To earn G-d's blessing for victory, a nation must make an absolute commitment not just to defeat, but to annihilate, the armies under Amaleki control — including the "civilian" support structures; failure to finish the extermination means that surviving Amalekim will return to start all over again, the tragic mistake made by King Saul out of a misplaced mercy (I Samuel 15).

4) The Torah also teaches other rules for winning against Amaleki armies, rules quite different from combat against other nations. These are many and complex principles that warn about Amaleki traps and ambushes, witchcraft and sorcery, psychological warfare, infiltration and subversion, protracted quagmire conflicts, etc. All these rules must be learned and followed to achieve victory, or else a nation confronted by Amaleki-led forces is doomed.

5) The rabbinical sages in the period shortly after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple by the Romans, particularly during the Bar Kochba revolt, were caught in a bitter dispute over whether the Biblical nation of Amalek still existed. Either it had been wiped out a few centuries earlier in Persia (a position implicitly taken by Rabbi Akiva and Bar Kochba, among others) or it had survived underground as a network of revolutionary secret societies quietly infiltrating social institutions of Jews and gentiles alike. For reasons too complex and involved to review here, the defeat of Bar Kochba and his Jewish armies proved the second view correct. In other words, it was definitively established that Amalek survives underground and would only be defeated at some point in the distant future. Amalek has been seen to resurface in recent centuries, primarily in the French Revolution, Communism, Nazism (National Socialism), and related movements, all of which reflect the distinct, unique characteristics of Amalek not seen in any other nation or movement. Regardless of which nations are under Amaleki control (Russia, China, Iran, Cuba, etc.), they function not as their former selves but rather as Amaleki forces, and must be treated as populations held hostage and forced to participate in Amalek's revolution. Only by the total annihilation of Communist networks in those nations (military and civilian alike) can the other 95 percent of the people be liberated and return to normality.

Since Communist detainees and POWs are not like those of other nations, the normal rules against executing prisoners do not apply in Iraq. The U.S. is required under Torah to achieve immediate victory, and that means the annihilation of over one million Iraqi Baathists and secret police informants, including "civilians" who don't directly participate in terrorism.

But that won't happen until we impeach and remove traitors from high positions, including the entire Bush Administration and a number of Congressmen and civil servants at the State Department, CIA, etc.

If we commit ourselves before G-d that we won't stop with victory, but rather that we'll see the conflict through to the complete extermination of the enemy, we may be able to receive His blessing for success. Otherwise, America is in for deep trouble from a determined enemy.

Subversion Alert

This week:
New evidence on treason by the phony "Sanhedrin"

It is by now perfectly obvious the so-called "Sanhedrin" hasn't the slightest intention of speaking out against Israeli surrender to the PLO, or against the U.S. sellout of Israel. Being as it is under the thorough control of Moscow's agents, it isn't going to be endorsing the JAHG-USA Campaign to Defund the PLO. It hasn't called on Israelis to resist the ethnic cleansing of Jews from parts of Israel, nor has it even condemned the government's evacuation of Gaza or the West Bank to PLO terrorist control. It isn't issuing rulings that Israel must re-invade the West Bank and Gaza, annihilate the PLO, and liberate the hostage Arab populations. Etc., etc., ad nauseum

The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, was recognized by most leading orthodox rabbis as one of the great Torah scholars and moral leaders of our generation. He endlessly, forcefully, insistently spoke out publicly on the Torah rules regarding Israel and its enemies. He pointed out that the Torah absolutely, positively forbids any surrender of even a single square inch of land that has fallen under Jewish control; this is an explicit, inviolable ruling of the Shulchon Oruch ("Table of Jewish Law"), which bases this religious obligation on the concept of strategic security and saving lives — i.e., that giving up even a single square inch of land anywhere automatically puts Jews at greater danger from their enemies, and is therefore prohibited by Torah Law under any and all circumstances. It does not matter whether that land was held by Jews in ancient times; once it falls under Jewish control now, it is forbidden to relinquish it, ever. Any Jewish leader who does yield land in any amount is tantamount to a coward or a traitor.

The Rebbe also taught that Jewish Law requires every single Jew, and especially every rabbi, to speak out in forceful opposition to any plan to surrender land. On that basis, the Rebbe unequivocally condemned numerous rabbis in Israel in the late 1970s and early 1980s for not opposing the surrender of the strategic Sinai Peninsula to Communist Egypt. Those rabbis, pronounced the Rebbe solemnly and authoritatively, have the blood of innumerable Jews on their hands, and stand condemned by Torah and by their Creator.

It's perfectly obvious what strong condemnations the Rebbe would now be issuing against the bogus "Sanhedrin" for its total silence on the issue.

But new evidence shows just how deliberately the Moscow-controlled "Sanhedrin" is selling out Jews and Israel to their enemies.

Vendyl Jones, a freewheeling archaeologist who sometimes makes noises about being "Noahide" for fundraising purposes, was one of the invited members of the phony "Sanhedrin's" equally bogus "Noahide Council" formed for seizing control of all Hasidic Gentiles and delivering them to interfaith programs under KGB auspices. Jones seems to be the one member of the "Noahide Council" who isn't a spy for the enemy, but he's definitely a gullible fool manipulated through his unending hunger for money and attention. And because he doesn't quite understand how he's being used, he has a tendency to blab things the enemy would rather he didn't.

Through Jones, we now learn that the "Sanhedrin" and its treasonous "rabbinical" leaders aren't just being silent on Israel's surrender to the PLO; they're actively promoting it (behind the scenes). Perfectly reflecting the propaganda the "Sanhedrin" agents whisper into his ears, Jones has come out in full support of Ariel Sharon's ethnic cleansing of Jews last year from the Gaza, and the utter surrender of that vital territory to full PLO occupation.

What, you ask, could possibly be the rationale for such stupidity? Don't worry; the Communist enemy is highly skilled at inventing whatever rationale will twist the gullible mind. The Communist agents in the "Sanhedrin" filled Jones' mind with notions that

Aside from being pure insanity, this nonsense reveals just how hard the "Sanhedrin" is working to support the treason by Israeli leaders. Now we can see much more clearly why former "Sanhedrin" leader Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, and its current leader, Rabbi Yoel Schwartz, consistently refuse even to hold discussions of what to do about the Israeli government's sellout. They're stalling for time and quietly trying to whittle down right wing opposition.

Those who still participate in the Moscow-controlled "Sanhedrin" are traitors working directly for the enemy.

(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.

Have Some Jewish Leaders Betrayed the Torah?

This week's example:
Rabbi Dovid Feinstein, Dean, Yeshiva Tiferes Yerushalayim, New York, NY

This could well be absolutely the most shameful refusal we've faced to date.

Until his passing in the 1990s, Rav Moshe Feinstein (z"l) was literally the greatest rabbinical authority in matters of Jewish Law in our generation. Virtually all other orthodox rabbis looked to him as the final word in almost any Torah issue of halacha (religious rulings). He also participated with other rabbis in the authoritative Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the U.S. and Canada (not to be confused with the larger, but less careful, Orthodox Union), in disseminating the Torah's views on moral issues to the broader public. The current leader of that group has already endorsed JAHG-USA's PLO-defunding Proclamation (as we hope to review in a future issue, G-d willing) — a clear indication that Rav Feinstein himself would certainly have endorsed the JAHG-USA campaign if he were alive today.

But, unfortunately, not his son. A JAHG-USA volunteer approached Rabbi Dovid Feinstein on January 3rd of this year with a copy of the Proclamation. Imagine the volunteer's surprise when he encountered the son of the late Torah authority turning rude and abrupt. Rabbi Dovid couldn't find anything at all wrong with the contents of the Proclamation (not even the tiniest point), nor with the campaign itself, but he definitely didn't want to sign. So he brushed the whole thing aside by saying he doesn't "get involved in politics."

What a travesty, a shame on the legacy of his great father! The elder Rav Moshe did "get involved in politics," specifically because that's where Torah values belong. And never mind that saving lives, the subject of the Proclamation, isn't "politics"; it's just a plain religious duty, as every rabbi learns early on in his yeshiva education. Rabbi Dovid knows that well, but he couldn't think of any excuse on the spot, so he dismissed fundamental Torah duties of saving lives as being mere "politics" — which he, evidently, doesn't think concern him.

It's equally evident that the younger Rabbi Dovid Feinstein isn't exactly the rabbi to turn to if you need a final decision of Jewish Law. His refusal makes him an epikoros ("Epicurean," literally, or "heretic"), and none of his decisions currently have any weight in Jewish Law.

That is, until he does teshuvah (repents) and endorses the terrorism-defunding campaign.

Terrorism Update:

The Bush Administration continues to fund the PLO war against Israelis, Turks, Arabs, and Americans through direct aid to PLO organizations, aid to Communist Lebanon and Communist Egypt, funding of the United Nations, and foreign aid to certain non-Communist Arab governments — all of whom are aiding the PLO and its Hamas and Hezbollah fronts. So this is what your tax dollars are accomplishing:

Summary of terror attacks, Wednesday (September 6) through Tuesday (September 12): This last week saw the usually litany of successful or barely prevented assaults, including bombs, firebombs, and rocks thrown at civilian and military targets alike; Kassam missiles fired from the PLO-occupied Gaza Strip; and anti-tank missiles and gunfire directed at Israeli soldiers and police. The attacks were carried out by the PLO's Fatah Tanzim militia, Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the PLO-controlled Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), the PLO-funded Hamas, and the PLO-coordinated Islamic Jihad — at times jointly.

Hamas and the PRC shot and killed an Arab soldier in the Israeli army at nearly point-blank range. Hamas and Islamic Jihad units torched a YMCA building in the West Bank as part of an open campaign of intimidation against palestinian Arabs, particularly middle-class Christians. And gunfire attacks by PLO-affiliated units murdered at least 3 palestinian Arabs, also part of the war of terror against Arabs to force them to collaborate with the PLO — although the PLO was quick to dismiss those murderous attacks as "clan infighting," etc., to deflect attention by the outside world (the last thing the PLO needs is Israelis or Americans waking up to realize they must intervene to save Arabs from the PLO while there's still time).

In Turkey, three powerful bombs were detonated in crowded urban areas in Kurdish parts of the country, murdering 7 (including 5 children) and injuring at least 17 (all Muslims, undoubtedly). The attacks were presumably carried out by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), the Communist party of the Kurdish region of Turkey that was created by the PLO in the early 1980s, and which continues to work closely with the PLO under Soviet Russian and Iranian supervision. The PLO can be presumed to have a strong hand in any PKK terror, potentially including logistical support (thus paid for by the United States through its aid to the PLO).

The PLO's main group, Fatah, was also caught this last week working hand in hand with Hezbollah, a PLO front group founded and run by the PLO's Force 17 unit, in developing locally manufactured missiles for use in the West Bank against civilian targets. As this project unfolds, look for rocket attacks to start close to Jerusalem.

This week's casualty count in Israel (not counting dead & injured terrorists):

Under the continuing reign of "Palmerism" (named after KGB agent Roberto Palmero whose spy networks infiltrated and sabotaged the Cuban military, helping Fidel Castro's tiny forces seize power in 1959), the Israeli government is moving quickly to silence opposition. Heavy-handed represssion and legal prosecutions are being used against any Israeli settler or right wing opponent who opposes, even just verbally, the government betrayal and sellout to the PLO enemy. In fact, Israeli judges just issued a bizarre "legal" opinion that it is a crime to accuse the government of treason! Treason, of course, takes place primarily in governments, where it is most effective. The Communist agents permeating and leading all aspects of the Israeli government (right up to the top) are clearly becoming desperate in the face of a growing tide of Israeli opinion to the right.

But everything is ordained by Divine Providence, down to the slightest detail. So we must ask ourselves, why is G-d allowing severe prosecutions to happen to the most loyal Israeli citizens, including fathers and mothers with several children each to take care of?

There's one clear, obvious answer: The only way to win, at this point, is by actively and aggressively participating in JAHG-USA's Campaign to Defund the PLO. That campaign has been receiving much attention, especially among religious Jews in America and Israel (a fair number of whom read this newsletter), yet very few have stepped forward to get involved. People are still allowing themselves to be distracted by enemy infiltrators posing as "right wing" leaders, and are being diverted off into nonsensical campaigns that cannot win.

So G-d is gradually beginning to get people's attention, however forcibly He must. His pressure will continue to increase until more and more people step forward and actively join JAHG-USA's campaign.

Sign up today at www.attacreport.com/plo/volunteer.htm to find out what you can do — and make sure all your friends do likewise. Does G-d need to become more forceful to get your attention?

Many Jewish Leaders Are Helping the JAHG-USA Campaign

This week's examples:
Rabbi Mendel Mintz, Jewish Community Center — Chabad, Aspen, CO;
Rabbi Eliezer Vaisfiche, Beit Haknesset Chabad, Petach Tikvah, Israel; and
Rabbi Menachem Mendel Gershovits, Chief Rabbi, Jewish Community of Almaty, Almaty, Kazakhstan

NOTE: Last week, we mentioned we didn't know the location of the Chabad synagogue in Karnei Shomron, Israel. A bit of Internet research uncovered that Karnei Shomron is a town formed from several settlements in the West Bank, located about 50 miles north of Jerusalem. That would place the synagogue of Rabbi Yitzchak Cohen, who signed the JAHG-USA Proclamation, just about in reach of the PLO/Hezbollah missiles weeks ago. We don't know if any landed in his area. But certainly he received additional Divine protection because of his endorsement of the PLO-defunding campaign last November.

Here are some more rabbis who signed on the first day of the international convention of Chabad representatives, last November 24th:

Rabbi Mintz runs one of the newer synagogues in the expanding Chabad network in the state of Colorado. The original (though not exclusive) mission of Chabad Houses was outreach to non-observant Jews, and as that program becomes ever more popular, new Chabad synagogues are sprouting up anywhere Jews can be found. Rabbi Mintz's endorsement of the JAHG-USA PLO-defunding campaign helps get Colorado Chabad off to a good start in a new direction: fighting terrorism. That, too, was a priority of the Chabad-Lubavitch Rebbe, who sent Chabad rabbis as his representatives for all of his campaigns, not just outreach to Jews.

Rabbi Vaisfiche operates his synagogue in the northern Israeli city of Petach Tikvah, the location of multiple suicide bombings and other PLO terrorist attacks over the last few years. The rabbi can well understand the importance of PLO defunding, and he had no hesitation in endorsing JAHG-USA's campaign.

Given the dangerous politics of anything in the Soviet republics (which remain fully Communist dictatorships with sealed borders, concentration camps, an all-pervasive KGB/FSB secret police, etc.) — never mind anything religiously Jewish — we'd normally be rather hesitant dealing with anything connected with institutions in those occupied countries. But Rabbi Gershovits, who not only runs the Chabad operation in Soviet Kazakhstan but is also the official Chief Rabbi for all Jewish affairs in the land, didn't think twice about signing JAHG-USA's Proclamation for PLO Defunding — a campaign the Communists are consistently dead-set against. Apparently the tentacles of KGB/FSB influence haven't yet anticipated every possible contingency (they probably didn't have the faintest idea we'd be asking Rabbi Gershovits for a signature while he was visiting New York!), and some things can slip through. That inability to "plug all the holes" is also what allowed Chabad under the Previous Rebbe, some 85 years ago, to conduct underground religious activities in the face of severe repression by the secret police informants of the KGB/FSB's predecessor, the Tcheka.

Rabbi Gershovits is based in Kazakhstan's former capital and still largest urban area, Almaty (previously Alma Ata). And his endorsement provides another voice from an unexpected direction in support of JAHG-USA. May it also provide him Divine protection from evil forces in that Communist-ravaged land.

We need more volunteers to approach rabbis for endorsements of the PLO-defunding campaign. Whether your rabbi is Chabad, Littvoch ("misnagged"), modern orthodox, Sefardi, or with some other Hasidic movement, and regardless of what country he is in, you need to get his signature. For a complete listing of all rabbis who have received our proclamation, the up-to-date status of their responses, and how you can help the campaign, visit our Campaign to Defund the PLO at http://www.attacreport.com/plo/.
