What is Antisemitism today, two generations after the Holocaust? In his continuing exploration of modern Israeli life, director Yoav Shamir travels the world in search of the most modern manifestations of the "oldest hatred", and comes up with some startling answers. In this irreverent quest, he follows American Jewish leaders to the capitals of Europe, as they warn government officials of the growing threat of Antisemitism, and he tacks on to a class of Israeli high school students on a pilgrimage to Auschwitz. On his way, Shamir meets controversial historian, Norman Finkelstein, who offers his views on the manner that Antisemitism is being used by the Jewish community and especially Israel for political gain. He also joins scholars, Stephen M. Walt and John J. Mearsheimer, while they give a lecture in Israel following the release of their book "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy", about the disproportional influence the Israel lobby in Washington enjoys. Yoav visits Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial museum in Jerusalem, the must stop for all world leaders on their visits to Israel. While in Jerusalem, he drops by the house of his grandmother that offers her insight on the issue and declares that she is the "real Jew".

The General's Son. Miko Peled is a peace activist who dares to say in public what others still choose to deny. Born in Jerusalem in 1961 into a well known Zionist family, his grandfather, Dr. Avraham Katsnelson was a Zionist leader and signer of the Israeli Declaration of Independence. His Father, Matti Peled, was a young officer in the war of 1948 and a general in the war of 1967 when Israel conquered the West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights and Sinai. Miko's unlikely opinions reflect his father's legacy. General Peled was a war hero turned peacemaker. Miko grew up in Jerusalem, a multi-ethnic city, but had to leave Israel before he made his first Palestinian friend, the result of his participation in a dialogue group in California. He was 39. On September 4, 1997 the beloved Smadar, 13, the daughter of Miko's sister Nurit and her husband Rami Elhanan was killed in a suicide attack. Peled insists that Israel/Palestine is one state—the separation wall notwithstanding, massive investment in infrastructure, towns and highways that bisect and connect settlements on the West Bank, have destroyed the possibility for a viable Palestinian state. The result, Peled says is that Israelis and Palestinians are governed by the same government but live under different sets of laws. At the heart of Peled's conclusion lies the realization that Israelis and Palestinians can live in peace as equals in their shared homeland.

The authority to judge what are the powers of the government, and what the liberties of the people, must necessarily be vested in one or the other of the parties themselves—the government, or the people; because there is no third party to whom it can be entrusted. -Lysander Spooner, “Trial By Jury,” 1852
Supporters of liberty often get confused over the path towards advancing liberty. Indeed, entire seminars, conferences, meetings, and discussions are devoted to this sole topic, “How do we free the world?” This is as grandiose a question as it seems; bringing about a free society is a long, tiresome path that may take one’s entire life to carry through. For others, the difficulty bringing about a free society is lack of specialization. If one’s career is not set in a liberty-oriented path, such as being a lecturer for the Institute for Humane Studies or the Foundation for Economic Education, or being an attorney for the Institute for Justice, then it may seem disheartening when trying to find avenues advancing personal, social, and economic liberty. However, this is not to say that the common individual cannot make a profound impact in the lives of others and work towards the destruction of dangerous and tyrannical social institutions at the same time.
Trial by jury may hold the key for unlocking a powerful check on the limits of government. In the United States, and many other common law nations, jurors possess the power to judge both the matters of fact (i.e., whether or not the defendant broke the law) and the matters of law (i.e., whether or not breaking the law in question is worthy of punishment). In other words, jurors may decide to find a defendant “not guilty” even though they may very well find the defendant to be guilty of committing the crime in question. The purpose of such a declaration is to rebel against a law which the jury believes is unjust. This action not only sends a message to government officials, legislators and judicial figures alike, but it also has the profound impact of saving the future wellbeing of the defendant, who may be guilty of committing a crime, but the law which was broken was an unjust law to start with.
What is unique about this check on government is that it is derived directly from the populace and not through the legislature. Jury nullification allows citizens to walk the careful line between populism and legislative tyranny. While long-term legislative reform may be necessary for the long-term shift towards a free society, reform is a slow and arduous process and may fall victim to perversions. As insights into public choice theory and democratic research shows legislatures are fallible and capable of creating unjust laws in order to appease special interest groups or out of pure ignorance (see Tony Cotzias’ post “Anyone Still For Democracy?”). Jury nullification obviates the obstructive and often slow hand of reform and works as a short-term cure for a larger ill. Similarly, unlike legislative reform, which often requires that one is a political insider, and unlike judicial reform, which requires similar specialization, jury nullification is carried out by the average citizens that make up a jury of one’s peers. This is not only true in theory but also in practice. Nullifying juries have been made up of blue-collar workers and white-collar businessmen alike, and rarely, if ever, include experts in common law. Jury nullification truly is the common man’s path around injustice.
Neither is jury nullification a crazed theory of radical libertarians, but has a strong and healthy history of undermining tyrannical government practices in the United States. Chief Justice John Jay recognized this right of jurors in the 1794 case Georgia v. Brailsford, noting that while it is presumed judges are the best judges of law and juries are the best judges of facts, “both objects are within [a jury’s] power of decision … [jurors] have a right to take it upon [themselves] to judge both, and to determine the law as well as the fact in controversy.” This precedent was heavily relied upon for decades by juries across the United States in determining the outcomes of cases.
However, a shift in American jurisprudence came before the 20th century. During the antebellum era, juries with abolitionist leanings would refuse to convict those charged with undermining the Fugitive Slave Laws. Courts, judges and prosecutors alike, began to seek the removal of jurors who were predisposed against the government’s case. Furthermore, judges would refuse to inform juries of their rights to judge the law. Slowly but surely, jury nullification became a rare and radical practice across the Union. Trials transformed from trial by jury to trial by government.
It is this transformation that constitutional lawyer Lysander Spooner warns against in his 1852 essay “Trial By Jury.” Spooner decries the possibility that without the power to judge matters of law and fact, juries will only become extensions of the state, only used to prop up the facade of impartiality. This power of juries, this “palladium of liberty,” must not be hidden away by the benefactors of the state. Spooner envisions the jury as the best manifestation of the concept of consent of the governed. The powerful right and duty of the jury to determine matters of law is the greatest bastion against the infringement of liberty by the state.
A modern case of judges withholding facts and legal instructions from jurors in order to further an agenda isthe case of Brian Aitken. Aitken’s only mistake in the course of the case was believing that judges ought to act impartially and give juries the correct instructions. Sadly, Aitken’s case is not even an example of a judge keeping nullification instructions from jurors, but simply a case of a judge doing exactly what Spooner decried: making the jury an extension of the state by deceit and dishonesty.
Despite cases like Aikten’s, trial by jury has made reappearances since the Civil War, but only in the most controversial of scenarios. Prohibition-era juries picked up on the practice and nullified up to sixty percent of cases. New Hampshire juries have acquitted several individuals in marijuana prohibition cases (most recently and famously in the case of Doug Darrell here). Still yet, others have considered jury nullification in cases of raw milk prohibition.
Juries have profound power in our common law legal system, but the state has a long history of attempting to hide this power. Only through learning of this power can it become a reality. When this power is unleashed, juries really are the “palladium of liberty.”
The nation's largest electronic mortgage-tracking system cannot foreclose on a homeowner in Washington state, the state's highest court ruled Thursday.
In a unanimous opinion, the Washington Supreme Court said that Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS) can't begin a foreclosure itself because it doesn't hold the note the homeowner signed with the lender. The ruling means banks or other noteholders will have to initiate foreclosures instead of relying on MERS.
Observers said the opinion could have a broader impact on other court cases alleging wrongful foreclosures in Washington. The ruling also leaves the door open for those who were wrongfully foreclosed to claim damages under state consumer-protection law — but it doesn't mean those homeowners in default are off the hook from paying their loans.
"They gave clarity to lawyers," said Fred Corbit, senior attorney in King County for the Northwest Justice Project and adjunct law professor at Seattle University.
"Will this make the foreclosure process a little more expensive? Not much," he said. "It's just they can't take this shortcut."
One of the two King County plaintiffs involved in Thursday's ruling, Kristin Bain, bought a home in Tukwila in 2007. After Bain fell behind on payments, MERS asked a trustee to start a foreclosure on behalf of now-defunct IndyMac Bank, and local consumer attorney Melissa Huelsman filed suit to stop an auction of Bain's home.
The case was later transferred to federal court, which asked the state's high court to interpret the state law.
The state Supreme Court didn't rule on whether Bain and the other plaintiff, Kevin Selkowitz, will avoid foreclosure; the federal court will rule on their cases.
MERS was created during the late 1990s when the buying and selling of mortgages became a big business for Wall Street — much like the electronic buying and selling of stocks and bonds.
Before MERS, every time an investor sold a mortgage loan to another investor, documents had to be filed in the county where the property was located.
The MERS system avoided that paperwork and saved the mortgage-finance industry millions in county recording fees, but the company that runs the massive database doesn't actually keep the loan documents; the loan servicers do, and MERS has argued in courts around the country that that is sufficient.
From 1999 to 2011, MERS initiated at least 900 foreclosures in King County on behalf of banks, according to county records. The court said MERS has the right to represent a bank, but failed to do this in the two cases because it couldn't identify the actual noteholders.
There's the "nub" of the larger problem with MERS, the justices wrote:
"Under the MERS system, questions of authority and accountability arise, and determining who has authority to negotiate loan modifications and who is accountable for misrepresentation and fraud becomes extraordinarily difficult."
MERSCORP Holdings, the Virginia-based private company that runs MERS, minimized the ruling's significance, saying it had stopped initiating foreclosures in its own name more than a year ago.
"The opinion will, however, create confusion for Washington homeowners while the trial courts consider its effect on pending cases," said Janis Smith, a spokeswoman for MERSCORP, in a statement. "We remain confident that MERS' role in the U.S. housing-finance system is valid and will withstand legal challenges."
Huelsman and Corbit both said the state Supreme Court ruling should dispel confusion rather than create it.
Federal courts in some other foreclosure cases have ruled MERS can start foreclosure proceedings as an agent for the noteholder, but those rulings apply in states with different deed-of-trust statutes.
"This clearly says you have to be the noteholder, and it doesn't just apply to MERS," Huelsman said.
And if a foreclosure is brought in the name of a bank and that bank doesn't hold the note, the ruling suggests that the bank could be sued for damages under state consumer-protection law, she said.
Attorney General Rob McKenna's office, which filed a brief in support of Bain, hailed Thursday's ruling.
"We believe this will promote honesty in the foreclosure process," said spokeswoman Janelle Guthrie. "Homeowners will be able to know, without a doubt and without having to dig through land records or legal files, exactly who claims to have the right to foreclose on their home."
The Washington Bankers Association, which filed a brief supporting MERS, had no immediate comment on the ruling.
Douglas Davies, the local attorney who represented MERS, said the court imposed "the literal language of a dated statute," reaching a decision that didn't benefit either borrowers or lenders.
"The Supreme Court has created a chaotic situation and essentially left it to a taxed legislature to come up with a solution," Davies said in an e-mail late Thursday. "The only certainty that will come from this decision is a plethora of lawsuits that will overburden an already burden[ed] judicial system."
I include some time lapse of the storms that developed over the Sangre de Cristo's Saturday 29 September 2012 as they were just a fragment of the activity on the edge of a large moisture plume that moved northward from Mexico during these past few days.
Intense chemtrailing off the Coast of Oregon, over Georgia and a large portion of the Southern US is seen in the high resolution visible and the water vapor imagery during the course of this day.
There were not a lot of planes or chemtrail flights to photograph, so I mostly look at what's going on elsewhere in the States.
Scientists of a Swiss institute say they have evidence that former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat may have been poisoned with polonium. According to the findings of laboratory research conducted at the Institute de Radiophysique in Lausanne, Switzerland, Arafat was poisoned by polonium, a rare, highly radioactive element, al-Jazeera reported on Tuesday. "I can confirm that we measured an unexplained, elevated amount of unsupported polonium-210 in the belongings of Mr. Arafat that contained stains of biological fluids," said Dr. Francois Bochud, the director of the institute.
Bochud stated that the tests focused on biological samples taken from his belongings, which were given to his wife Suha Arafat by the hospital in Paris where he died. "If (Suha Arafat) really wants to know what happened to her husband (we need) to find a sample -- I mean, an exhumation... should provide us with a sample that should have a very high quantity of polonium if he was poisoned," he added. Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) leader Yasser Arafat died on November 11, 2004, following several weeks of medical treatment. At the time, French officials refused to reveal the exact cause of his death on grounds of privacy laws, fueling rumors that the Mossad had poisoned him with thallium, another radioactive element.
If you've been paying attention, you know that the American media act as presstitutes for rich and powerful Americans.
But it turns out that the American media will turn "tricks" for foreign johns as well ...
Specifically, three time Emmy award winning reporter Amber Lyon was until very recently a respected CNN reporter:
Lyon was fired from CNN after she refused to stop reporting on her first-hand experience of the systematic torture and murder of peaceful protesters by the government of Bahrain.
Lyon's special report on Bahrain was scheduled to run on both CNN's U.S. and international networks, but was pulled after only a limited showing due to pressure from the Bahrainis and their lobbyists.
At the same time that Lyon was risking her life to do on-the-ground reporting in Bahrain, another CNN journalist was filming a paid propaganda piece on how the Bahraini leaders are a bunch of friendly pro-democracy reformers.
That's right ... the Bahraini government paid CNN to do what was literally an infomercial for that brutal regime and pretend it was real journalism.
Lyon says that China and many other foreign, authoritarian regimes also pay CNN and other mainstream networks to run flattering propaganda pieces.

”Sure, Iran could divert a few tons of 3.5% or a ton of 20% enriched uranium hexaflouride gas for enrichment to 90+%. But what then? No one has ever made a nuclear weapon from gas.”
This week a letter was sent to President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu by Clinton Bastin, lead consultant to the IAEA and their top expert in the area of nuclear weapons design and processes.
To us the complete letter below outlines that the IAEA has been hijacked by elements unfamiliar with nuclear weapons that seem to be “tasked” with gross misrepresentations of science and physics in order to support the concept that Iran has a nuclear weapons program.
Bastin assumes these horrific errors are due to incompetence. He spent 40 years as a nuclear weapons designer for the United States involved hands on daily work in advanced physics and the most complicated and dangerous manufacturing and assembly process known to man. But many of us, on the other hand, have spent our lives hunting down conspirators and are busy still doing it.
Clinton has spent his life supporting safe nuclear energy, supporting international efforts to prevent nuclear proliferation and serving his country, initially in combat in World War II and in a lifetime of achievement at the Department of Energy and working with a wide variety of organizations including the IAEA and president of the 900,000 member Nuclear Workers Union.
Bastin is also a retired Marine officer. Fortunately for us all, he has been Veterans Today’s top nuke consultant since I found him living right here in Atlanta with me.
My chemical engineering undergrad work was a bit dated, but he invested the time to take me through the evaluation steps, several times, until the light went on. Enriching uranium to bomb grade levels is a very complex process, but converting the material into a functioning weapons platform has another whole set of opportunities for blowing the place up.
Chernobyl – the first Big One
After the Chernobyl disaster, nuclear workers worldwide banded to together create safety standards to avoid another such tragedy.
While we have some detractors who feel we are too close to Iran on this nuclear threat stuff, the following letter of Clinton to Netanyahu, Obama, and general Amato will prove to all that our position was based on hard Intel. We have known all along that Bibi was bluffing on the Iran bomb threat.
And while American mass media has never picked on the articles we have done on Clinton’s material, top Israeli military and Intelligence people have. These include such stalwarts as Meir Dagan, former head of their Mossad.
The New York Times might have published some letter excerpts, but nothing else. Our appreciation for our own media took a nose dive when we saw them lying by omission by not giving Mr. Bastin’s view national exposure. Such oversights, I assure you, do not happen by accident.
And as we go into the last weeks of the presidential campaigns here we can see that even a presidential contender with his NeoCon commandos are also caught trying to ride the fake bomb threat into the White house, where they have already promised to pull the trigger, which will be an instant disaster for all the rest of us.
To launch a preemptive strike based on bogus Intel would be a war crime under the Nuremberg precedents, as it would truly be an offensive act, not really a defensive one.But there is a double hoax in play here. We are sitting here with this totally bizarre situation where Israel, a rogue nation in terms of it’s huge weapons of mass destruction programs and stockpiles.
The Israelis have completely ignored any international responsibility for their actions and yet have the gall to demand red lines of others. I think it is time for the people of the world to issue Israel some red lines. And now is the perfect time. We have Clinton’s letter below, and we have General Shaul Horev, director of the Israeli Nuclear Energy Committee with his latest comment about any plans for discussing a nuclear free Mid East soon:
“In order to realize this idea there is need for prior conditions and a complete reversal of the current trend in the area,” Horev said. “This is an idea born in other areas and alien to the reality and political culture of the area. Nuclear demilitarization in the Middle East, according to the Israeli position, will be possible only after the establishment of peace and trust among the states of the area, as a result of a local initiative, not of external coercion.”
It is clear who the real threat is… Israel. And all those who support the their never ending victim parade, are actually guilty of aiding and abetting in an Nuremberg crime against humanity. If there is to be a pre-emptive strike against a dangerous aggressor, we need to re-evaluate who that really is, and act accordingly. But it gets worse. Horev goes back to the tradition ‘victim well’ with more threat hoaxes, the silly faked quote of Iran wanting to wipe Israelis off the map, and this new one, that Assad would use chemical weapons against the rebels of give them to Hezbollah.
But enough of me, now on to Clinton’s letter. I have not excerpted this as I wanted you to see an important piece of history in it’s entirety. Press TV gets this today because I feel they will print it. Clinton deserves to be heard.
The world needs to know that such informed opinions have been kept out of the media because it would make us harder to manipulate with the nuclear Iran boogeyman. That in itself is part of an attack on the rest of us. It is way past time we gave them some of their own medicine, while we still can.
Dear Prime Minister Netanyahu:
Iran may be in your red zone, but can not score.
Sure, Iran could divert a few tons of 3.5% or a ton of 20% enriched uranium hexaflouride gas for enrichment to 90+%. But what then?
No one has ever made a nuclear weapon from gas. It must be converted to metal and fabricated into components which are then assembled with high explosives.
Iran lacks experience with and facilities for these processes which are very dangerous because of potential for a criticality accident or nuclear explosion. Iran would not jeopardize its important, fully safeguarded nuclear programs by an attempt to have a deliverable, one kiloton yield nuclear weapon ten to fifteen years later.
IMPORTANT NOTE: North Korea was able to make and test a nuclear explosive soon after withdrawing from safeguards because plutonium for reactor recycle was in a form usable for a weapon.
[Jim Dean note: Our sources at Veterans Today agree that ready made material had to be available, but was acquired from and outside sources which was confirmed by U.S. Vela satellites.]
Earlier, I had provided information to him from experiences with nuclear weapons and knowledge of nuclear programs in other nations that there was no potential weapon threat from Iran’s nuclear programsIsraeli Consul-General for the South East United States Reda Mansour and I discussed these and related issues about nuclear technology in a March 2009 meeting.
Soon after my meeting with Consul General Mansour, I sent information about lack of an Iranian nuclear weapon threat by e-mail to you and President Obama and discussed the issue with then IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei.
Dr. ElBaradei was aware that IAEA inspectors do not understand technology for designing and producing weapons but instead rely on long ‘trigger’ lists of items that could – but mostly do not – indicate work on weapons. He agreed with me that there was no weapon threat from Iran’s fully safeguarded nuclear programs.
President Obama asked U.S. FBI special agents to meet with me to verify my information. Responses from your office indicated awareness that my information was accurate. The New York Times published three of my letters explaining no Iranian nuclear weapon threat and including my experiences with weapons and weapon threat assessment.
A major problem is that very few understand the complex chemical engineering technology used to produce nuclear materials and components for weapons.
Israel’s weapons are plutonium-based, implosion-type. Israeli officials do not understand the technology for a uranium-based, gun-type nuclear weapon that Iran could hypothetically build.
All chemical companies who managed and all government chemical engineers (such as myself) who directed programs for production of nuclear materials and components have left the US government, which has lost the ability to produce most nuclear materials and components for weapons and assess ability of other nations to do so.During discussions with officials and staff of US national security agencies and others in Washington, DC, and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, Austria from 1972 to 1997, I never met anyone who understood the technology used for producing nuclear materials and nuclear components for weapons.
Current IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano does not appreciate the limitations of inspectors and accepts their findings of suspicious activities that are not. For example, testing of high explosives at the Parchin military site could indicate testing for more sophisticated plutonium-based, implosion-type weapons, but not the simple hypothetical weapon of Iran Appropriate denial of access to inspectors leads to further criticism and false claims.
Please share this information with all Israelis and end threats of military actions against important, fully safeguarded nuclear facilities.
I would be pleased to provide clarification or additional information about these issues.
Best wishes for peace! Clinton Bastin
Copies to US President Barack Obama and IAEA Director General Yukiya Amato
Clinton Bastin directed US Atomic Energy Commission programs for production of nuclear materials and nuclear components for weapons from 1955 through 1971 and was a consultant to US national security agencies on nuclear weapon threats in other nations from 1972 through 1996.
At retirement in March 1997 he received the DOE’s Distinguished Career Service Award recognizing him as “the U.S. authority on reprocessing; an advocate and initiator of total quality management and partnering agreements; and, as President of the Employees’ Union, selflessly ensuring the recognition and rights of DOE’s greatest resources, its people.”
He also received a note from Energy Secretary Hazel O’Leary stating “Thanks for the wonderful and productive partnership,” and messages from leaders of the Russian Ministry for Atomic Energy and Russian Nuclear Workers Union informing him that they had adopted his ideas for their plan to improve safety for nuclear activities through partnerships. He was invited to address delegates to the first national convention of the 900,000-member Nuclear Workers Union, and delegates voted to adopt the plan.
