[wvns] Joachim Martillo: Saving Darfur?

Open letter to Michael Capuano, Representative to Congress, 8th
District, MA
April 21, 2007
http://eaazi.blogspot.com/2007/04/open-letter-to-michael-capuano.html

Dear Representative Capuano:

I have been attending many Darfur-related events and meetings in the
Boston area. Because I have found that much of the leadership the Save
Darfur movement has associations with the David Project or the
American Anti-Slavery Group, which were both founded by Charles Jacobs
(http://tinyurl.com/yp78gr), I am concerned about hate-mongering and
anti-Arab or anti-Muslim incitement that can only have negative
implications for homeland security within the Bay State and for the
whole country.

I have put together an article about Darfur activism that includes
three news reports of local Darfur meetings and the complete text of a
statement that I read in abridged form to the Massachusetts Public
Service Committee during a joint hearing to collect testimony with
regard to pending Sudan divestment legislation (S1474). You can find
the article at http://tinyurl.com/344gxh.


I hypothesize

1. that Darfur activism is a very successful viral marketing
campaign, which has been created by a local Boston extremist Israel
advocacy group, and
2. that the Save Darfur movement connects to the upper echelons of
the Neocons.

The organized Jewish community with guidance from Neocon leaders is
making a show of political force as well as trying to control human
rights and genocide discourse by means of the Sudan issue.

[Note that the phrase organized Jewish community refers to the network
of Jewish communal organizations to which professional Jews belong.
Professional Jews are people like Abraham Foxman of the ADL or David
Harris of the AJC. I do not mean Jewish doctors or Jewish lawyers,
whom I would call Jewish professionals.]

If you do not have the time to read my article, here is the punch-line
from the first news report.

Altogether the information provided by the presenters indicates
that a clique from the most extremist racist segment of the Boston
Jewish community has with the resources of the [Jewish Council for
Public Affairs (JCPA)] and local [Jewish Community Relations Councils
(JCRCs)] transformed Darfur activism into a highly effective viral
marketing program. The JCPA has developed a program that local JCRCs
use in Jewish Community Centers, at media update sessions, at college
events, and at interfaith sessions.

Then from the Jewish community the Darfur campaign has spread even
further through American intellectual and political culture with the
aid of academic falsifiers and media pundits like Samantha Powers,

* who is the Anna Lindh Professor of Practice of Global
Leadership and Public Policy at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of
Government,
* who was the founding director of Carr Center for Human
Rights Policy (1998-2002),
* who has been heavily involved in misinforming the public
about Darfur (see
http://www.ksg.harvard.edu/cchrp/research/audiovideo.php) and
* whose Pulitzer Prize winning book A Problem from Hell:
America and the Age of Genocide panders ethnic Ashkenazi Americans by
conveniently ignoring both
o the mass murders, ethnic cleansing and genocide
architected or executed by Bolshevik Ashkenazim during the Russian
Revolution and the first 25 years of the Soviet Union and also
o the premeditated genocide of the Palestinian
population that Zionist Ashkenazim plotted during the late 19th and
first half of the twentieth century, that they began in 1947, and that
they continue to execute to this very day.

Just as a biological epidemic initially does its harm locally and
then spreads rapidly over larger distances, the Darfur campaign has
spread like an influenza outbreak as Jewish bloggers and Jewish
community activists spread the propaganda to the media, to academia,
throughout the government, to the clergy, to business,[7] throughout
society, and finally internationally.

At first, the Save Darfur movement only poisoned human rights
discourse within the USA, then it began threatening Sudan with an
armed invasion practically guaranteed to recreate the Iraq disaster,
lately it has complicated US relations with Arab as well as Muslim
states, and now it is beginning to interfere with US-China politics as
Darfur activists have begun to target the Chinese Olympics.

Please note that I am not denying the large number of civilian deaths
in Darfur.

Such an assertion would be like claiming that Georgians did not die
during Sherman's March through Georgia.

I am just arguing

1. that genocide is not taking place and
2. that some very important Neocons and certain elements within the
organized Jewish community are trying to incite a Sudan intervention,
which can only be a disaster for the Sudanese and for America.

I know a lot about the Sudan. I surveyed the country in the early
1990s for the purpose of implementing and upgrading the then existing
telephone network to modern standards, but I could not tell you
whether the USA should support Omar al-Bashir (Islamist) or Hasan
al-Turabi (more Islamist but more innovative within Islamic traditions).

To the first approximation intervention would be a choice to replace
Omar al-Bashir with Hasan al-Turabi or someone from Turabi's political
faction (the National Islamic Front; Arabic: الجبهة
الإسلامية القومية). I am not sure what that would
mean. I am not sure anyone can guess.

Unfortunately, once we start calling the civil war in Darfur a
genocide, we cut off all rational discussion because the supporters of
intervention are good guy humanitarians while intervention opponents
are the bad guys, who refuse to fight genocide.

The Save Darfur movement is part of a program to manipulate the US
into taking military action in the Sudan and then later against Iran
with the justification that Ahmadi-Nejad is inciting genocide and will
obtain nuclear weapons unless the USA acts.

For the good of Americans and the peoples of Africa and the Middle
East, we have to discuss the interventionist subtext in addition to
the crisis for civilians in Darfur. Otherwise, the ultimate disaster
will be worse than Iraq. Until we Americans come to a decision by
rational and open discussion, we should focus primarily on helping
Darfuran civilians through organizations like Islamic Relief Worldwide.

The Darfur Advocacy groups are raising money for political lobbying
for intervention. They are not helping Darfuran civilians at all and
are probably worsening conditions for all noncombatants in the region.

Sincerely yours,

Joachim Martillo

What follows is a description of an "interfaith" event used by Zionist
activists to promote the cause of US isolation of Sudan. "Interfaith"
is a new type of activism which seeks to circumvent the normal
democratic process by enmeshing Christian and Muslim leadership in
Zionist propaganda campaigns.


Interfaith Leadership Meeting on Darfur

Wednesday, March 21, 2007, the Interfaith Leadership Meeting on Darfur
took place between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM at the Conservative Jewish
synagogue Kehillath Israel at 384 Harvard Street in Brookline.[1] The
synagogue's rabbi William Hamilton is a director of the David Project,
which has lead a media campaign against the Islamic Society of Boston
(ISB) and the Roxbury Crossing Islamic Center that the ISB is
building. (See http://tinyurl.com/28n4x7 and http://tinyurl.com/2dxcyg.)

The meeting served as preparation for the March 29th public hearing of
the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Public Service during the on
pending legislation (S1474[2]) to direct the Massachusetts state
pension fund (Pension Reserves Investment Management Board or PRIM) to
divest selectively from Sudan because of the ongoing crisis in Darfur.

The speakers included:

* the Reverend Dr. Gloria White-Hammond,[3] who is co-pastor of
the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Jamaica Plain,
Massachusetts and who has long been associated with American
Anti-Slavery Group and Christian Solidarity International (CSI), which
were accused of raising money for fraudulent slave redemptions during
the conflict in South Sudan (see http://tinyurl.com/24ryzx) and whose
leaders often used the human rights events and conferences as
opportunities to defame and to demonize Arabs and Muslims (see
http://tinyurl.com/yp78gr)
* Mark Hanis, who is founder and executive director of the Global
Intervention Network and who states explicitly that his Birthright
Israel (http://www.birthrightisrael.org) trip provided him with the
inspiration for his suddenly well-funded Darfur campaign, which
provides the perfect distraction from the ongoing atrocities and
genocide that the State of Israel commits against the native
population.[4]
* Mr. Eric Cohen, who is:
o Co-Chairman of the MA Coalition to Save Darfur,
o founder and Editor-at-Large of The New Atlantis,
o an adjunct fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center,
o a contributor to the flagship Neoconservative periodical
The Weekly Standard, and
o a collaborator with the preeminent Neoconservative
intellectual William Kristol in editing The Future is Now: America
Confronts the New Genetics (see http://tinyurl.com/2sxn6h),
* Ken Sweder, who is
o a former president of the Boston Jewish Community
Relations Council (JCRC),
o a current member of the board of directors of the Boston
JCRC, and
o a member of the Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action
(JALSA), and
* several others, among whom was a local African American
clergyman with an excellent singing voice.

The attendees consisted of clergy and laymen of various denominations
and ethnic groups including an Egyptian Muslim.

There was no discussion during the meeting. The speakers simply
presented the current strategy and message about Darfur.

Gloria White-Hammond presented some horrific pictures and discussed
the Sudan Divestment Bill S1474 as the first in a serious of steps to
bring about intervention in Sudan. White-Hammond's approach to Darfur
today is similar to the techniques that she used on behalf of Charles
Jacobs in the AASG. She invokes a Pavlov trigger, which is usually a
gruesome story or photograph, which constitutes no proof whatsoever of
her analysis of the situation in Sudan. In this case, a viewer had no
way to know whether he was looking at the victim of government
militia, rebel militia, brigands, tribal violence, a wife beating, or
a vehicular accident. Audience members assaulted by the images are
supposed to react by accepting her claims about the atrocities and the
solutions without question. White-Hammond is apparently most
successful in using this technique to manipulate well-off white
Christian suburban Americans. She lamented the lack of participation
of Muslims and Muslim women in the Save Darfur movement.

Mark Hanis discussed the marketing of Sudan Divestment via sound bites
and punchy slogans, e.g., "Educate, advocate, legislate!"

Sweder is a professional Jew. The description does not mean that he is
a doctor or lawyer, for then he would be a Jewish professional.
Professional Jews are people like Abraham Foxman of the
Anti-Defamation League (ADL) or David Harris of the American Jewish
Committee (AJC), and they work for at least one entity within the
network of Jewish communal organizations, which collectively
constitute the organized Jewish community. Sweder discussed the issue
of Darfur from the standpoint of a Jewish communal insider.

He described the initial difficulty of persuading the Jewish Council
for Public Affairs (http://www.jewishpublicaffairs.org/), which is the
national umbrella organization for the local JCRCs, to support
divestment legislation because of the history of the opposition of the
organized Jewish community to divestment from Israel, but Sweder and
others from the Boston organized Jewish community explained the record
of Boston-area human rights activities in which the organized Jewish
community has played the leading role. Within the Boston organized
Jewish community, the AASG and the David Project constitute the
primary human rights advocacy organizations. The Boston professional
Jews argued that controlling human rights discourse is "good for the
Jews." (See http://tinyurl.com/yp78gr.) The Boston delegation
successfully convinced the JCPA to lead the JCRCs in a campaign for
selective divestment from Sudan.[5] Thanks to the direct and indirect
ongoing efforts of JCRCs and groups aided or sponsored by JCRCs
throughout the country, Sudan divestment has become law in Iowa and is
in the process of approval in 12 states (http://tinyurl.com/2h9zwu).[6]

The last speaker led the attendees in a song that he composed for the
Save Darfur campaign.

Altogether the information provided by the presenters indicates that a
clique from the most extremist racist segment of the Boston Jewish
community has with the resources of the JCPA and local JCRCs
transformed Darfur activism into a highly effective viral marketing
program. The JCPA has developed a program that local JCRCs use in
Jewish Community Centers, at media update sessions, at college events
and at interfaith sessions.

Then from the Jewish community the Darfur campaign has spread even
further through American intellectual and political culture with the
aid of academic falsifiers and media pundits like Samantha Powers,

* who is the Anna Lindh Professor of Practice of Global Leadership
and Public Policy at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government,
* who was the founding director of Carr Center for Human Rights
Policy (1998-2002),
* who has been heavily involved in misinforming the public about
Darfur (see http://www.ksg.harvard.edu/cchrp/research/audiovideo.php) and
* whose Pulitzer Prize winning book A Problem from Hell: America
and the Age of Genocide panders ethnic Ashkenazi Americans by
conveniently ignoring both
o the mass murders, ethnic cleansing and genocide
architected or executed by Bolshevik Ashkenazim during the Russian
Revolution and the first 25 years of the Soviet Union and also
o the premeditated genocide of the Palestinian population
that Zionist Ashkenazim plotted during the late 19th and first half of
the twentieth century, that they began in 1947, and that they continue
to execute to this very day.

Just as a biological epidemic initially does its harm locally and then
spreads rapidly over larger distances, the Darfur campaign has spread
like an influenza outbreak as Jewish bloggers and Jewish community
activists spread the propaganda to the media, to academia, throughout
the government, to the clergy, to business,[7] throughout society, and
finally internationally.

At first, the Save Darfur movement only poisoned human rights
discourse within the USA, then it began threatening Sudan with an
armed invasion practically guaranteed to create a Sudanese disaster
dwarfing that in Iraq, lately Darfur advocacy has complicated US
relations with Arab as well as Muslim states, and now it is beginning
to interfere with US China politics as Darfur activists have begun to
target the Chinese Olympics.
Joint Committee on Public Service Hearing for Pending Legislation S1474

On March 29, 2007 the Joint Committee on Public Service heard
testimony from approximately 300 politicians, students and activists
at the Boston State House on S1474. Chairman Jay Kaufman opened the
hearing by noting that he had never seen larger attendance at any
similar event. For approximately three hours the Committee listened
to almost uniformly pro-Divestment testimony.

Actress Mia Farrow, whose movie career has been almost entirely
defined by her relationships with directors Otto Preminger, Andre
Previn and Woody Allen, has in some sense returned to her roots by
taking part in this JCRC production, for Otto Preminger is famous
inter alia for the screen adaptation of Leon Uris' novel, Exodus,
whose composition was for the most part financed by the Israeli
government as propaganda. Since her career tanked after her divorce
from Woody Allen, she has been working hard to establish her Jewish
and pro-Israel credentials, and Hollywood sources have indicated that
she will get some parts in upcoming pictures from Universal if her
Darfur gig is successful enough.

Part of the video that Farrow showed at the hearing is hosted by
Youtube at: http://tinyurl.com/2qu22e.


The gruesome images that Farrow showed in no way proved the veracity
of her claims or the validity of selective divestment as a solution,
but this sort of mental assault made it hard for the audience to judge
her claims or proposed solutions rationally.

The JCRC bussed high school students from Harwich to the hearing.
Other speakers included members of the cast from the AASG’s
anti-Muslim anti-Arab fake human rights events like Panther Alier of
the Sudanese ‘Lost Boys’ and Smith College English Professor Eric
Reeves, who became an expert on the Sudan while working on the AASG
and CSI’s fraudulent “slave-redemption� campaign.
Eric Cohen, who is a Neocon associate of William Kristol, also spoke.

Anthony Barsamian of the KNOW Genocide Coalition and the Armenian
Assembly of America once again tagged along with the organized Jewish
community. (See http://tinyurl.com/ysjo4x.)

Rabbi Or N. Rose (Hebrew College, Newton, Massachusetts) connected the
sufferings of Darfurans to the sufferings of the Children of Israel in
Egypt when he spoke.

The Committee only questioned two witnesses, who represented local
investment funds and who had no problem with the Sudan Divestment
Legislation because they were going to sell stock short in order to
profit from the decline in stock price instead of profiting from any
increase in stock value that resulted from business that companies are
doing in the Sudan.

The Massachusetts Coalition to Save Darfur provides transcripts of a
lot of the pro-Sudan divestment testimony at
http://savedarfurma.googlepages.com/statedivestment.


Only three witnesses opposed S1474.

PRIM executive director Michael Travaglini opposed S1474 because it
would force pension managers to assess the risk of divestment before
investing in any controversial region.

David Rolde of the Green Rainbow Party attacked S1474 as a propaganda
campaign to demonize Arabs and Muslims that is part of an imperialist
strategy to prepare Americans for war in the Sudan to benefit of US
and Israeli interests
(http://www.green-rainbow.org/Newsletters/election06/articles/sudan.html).

Inventor-Entrepreneur Joachim Martillo[8] read an abridged version of
a statement that deconstructed the interest of the organized Jewish
community in Darfur and that opposed S1474 because it is harmful to
Darfurans, based on falsehood and conceived in deceit.

Overall, the type of grass roots-like political activity in which the
organized Jewish community engaged at the Public Service Committee
hearing suggests that AIPAC and similar specifically Zionist political
lobby organizations represent only part of the web of control that
Jewish or Zionist groups can exert or attempt to exert over public
discourse about the Middle East, about human rights, about Arabs and
about Islam.
