Here is the full article; I highlighted the parts that resonate with us here in Israel, following the sordid episode of the 10 boys kidnapped and tortured by the Shabak for the sake of producing Jewish terrorists: exact same scenario, exact same modus operandi. Not by accident did I refer to the extrajudicial torture of these innocent boys as "Guantanamo in Israel". You would not suppose the perpetrators received orders from the same source, would you?

Unique among the countries on earth, the US government insists that its laws and dictates take precedence over the sovereignty of nations.
Washington asserts the power of US courts over foreign nationals and claims extra-territorial jurisdiction of US courts over foreign activities of which Washington or American interest groups disapprove. Perhaps the worst results of Washington’s disregard for the sovereignty of countries is the power Washington has exercised over foreign nationals solely on the basis of terrorism charges devoid of any evidence.
Consider a few examples. Washington first forced the Swiss government to violate its own banking laws. Then Washington forced Switzerland to repeal its bank secrecy laws. Allegedly, Switzerland is a democracy, but the country’s laws are determined in Washington by people not elected by the Swiss to represent them.
Consider the “soccer scandal” that Washington concocted, apparently for the purpose of embarrassing Russia. The soccer organization’s home is Switzerland, but this did not stop Washington from sending FBI agents into Switzerland to arrest Swiss citizens. Try to imagine Switzerland sending Swiss federal agents into the US to arrest Americans.
Consider the $9 billion fine that Washington imposed on a French bank for failure to fully comply with Washington’s sanctions against Iran. This assertion of Washington’s control over a foreign financial institution is even more audaciously illegal in view of the fact that the sanctions Washington imposed on Iran and requires other sovereign countries to obey are themselves strictly illegal. Indeed, in this case we have a case of triple illegality as the sanctions were imposed on the basis of concocted and fabricated charges that were lies.
Or consider that Washington asserted its authority over the contract between a French shipbuilder and the Russian government and forced the French company to violate a contract at the expense of billions of dollars to the French company and a large number of jobs to the French economy. This was a part of Washington teaching the Russians a lesson for not following Washington’s orders in Crimea.
Try to imagine a world in which every country asserted the extra-territoriality of its law. The planet would be in permanent chaos with world GDP expended in legal and military battles.
Neoconned Washington claims that as History chose America to exercise its hegemony over the world, no other law is relevant. Only Washington’s will counts. Law itself is not even needed as Washington often substitutes orders for laws as when Richard Armitage, Deputy Secretary of State (an unelected position) told the President of Pakistan to do as he is told or “we will bomb you into the stone age.”http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/5369198.stm
Try to image the Presidents of Russia or China giving such an order to a soverign nation.
In fact, Washington did bomb large areas of Pakistan, murdering thousands of women, children, and village elders. Washington’s justification was the assertion of the extra-territoriality of US military actions in other countries with which Washington is not at war.
As horrendous as all of this is, the worst of Washington’s crimes against other peoples is when Washington kidnaps citizens of other countries and renditions them to Guantanamo in Cuba or to secret dungeons in criminal states such as Egypt and Poland to be held and tortured in violation both of US law and international law. These egregious crimes prove beyond any doubt that the US government is the worst criminal enterprise that has ever existed on Earth.
When the criminal neoconservative George W. Bush regime launched its illegal invasion of Afghanistan, the criminal regime in Washington desperately needed “terrorists” in order to provide a justification for an illegal invasion that constitutes a war crime under international law. However, there were not any terrorists. So Washington dropped leaflets over warlord territories offering thousands in dollars in bounty money for “terrorists.” The warlords responded to the opportunity and captured every unprotected person and sold them to the Americans for the bounty.
The only evidence that the “terrorists” were terrorists is that the innocent people were sold to the Americans by warlords as “terrorists.”
Yesterday Fayez Mohammed Ahmed Al-Kandari was released after 14 years of torture by “freedom and democracy America.” The United States military officer, Col. Barry Wingard, who represented Al-Kandari said that “there simply is no evidence other than he is a Muslim in Afghanistan at the wrong time, other than double and triple hearsay statements, something I have never seen as justification for incarceration.” Much less, said Col. Wingard, was there cause for a litany of multi-year torture in an effort to force a confession to the alleged offenses.
Do not expect the Western prostitute media to report these facts to you.

The presstitute Western media are part of Washington’s criminal operation.

Antidote for the sickness of the Erev Rav:
21. וּבֹא רְאֵה, וַיְהִי הַיּוֹם וַיָּבֹאוּ בְּנֵי הָאֱלֹהִים לְהִתְיַצֵּב עַל ה’, כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר. וְאוֹתוֹ יוֹם עוֹמְדִים שְׁנֵי צְדָדִים כְּנֶגֶד בְּנֵי הָעוֹלָם. כָּל אוֹתָם שֶׁבָּאִים לִפְנֵי הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא בִּתְשׁוּבָה וּבְמַעֲשִׂים טוֹבִים, הֵם זוֹכִים לִהְיוֹת כְּתוּבִים אֵצֶל אוֹתוֹ צַד שֶׁהוּא חַיִּים, וּמוֹצִיא תּוֹצְאוֹת חַיִּים. וּמִי שֶׁהוּא מִצִּדּוֹ, נִכְתָּב לְחַיִּים. וְכָל אוֹתָם שֶׁבָּאִים בְּמַעֲשִׂים רָעִים לְאוֹתוֹ צַד, הֵם נִכְתָּבִים לְאוֹתוֹ צַד אַחֵר שֶׁהוּא מָוֶת, וְנִקְרָא מָוֶת, וּבוֹ שׁוֹרֶה הַמָּוֶת.
“וַיְהִי הַיּוֹם–וַיָּבֹאוּ בְּנֵי הָאֱלֹהִים, לְהִתְיַצֵּב עַל-יְהוָה; וַיָּבוֹא גַם-הַשָּׂטָן, בְּתוֹכָם”
“Now there was the day and the sons of God came to present themselves before YHVH, and Satan also came among them”
‘The day’ is Rosh Hashanah when the good and bad sides appears before YHVH for judgment.
Those who cleanse themselves from impurities and all aspects of negativity and earn merits from good deeds are judged and inscribed to life. The impure and wicked are judged and inscribed to death.
The process of judgment on Rosh Hashanah gives us opportunity to add ‘points’ to our ‘life’ account. We ‘collect’ our savings at the time of the Resurrection to the state of immortality. It will determine if we stay resurrected or fall back to darkness. These life savings will also determine the level we will be at and the benefits we will receive at that time and during the immortality state.
... And continued:
23. וְאוֹתוֹ הַזְּמַן הָעוֹלָם הָיָה עוֹמֵד בָּאֶמְצַע, וְאוֹתוֹ מְקַטְרֵג רָצָה לְהַסְטִין. מִיָּד מַה כָּתוּב? הֲשַׂמְתָּ לִבְּךָ עַל עַבְדִּי אִיּוֹב כִּי אֵין כָּמֹהוּ בָּאָרֶץ וְגוֹ’. כֵּיוָן שֶׁנּוֹדַע הוּא לְבַדּוֹ, מִיָּד הֶחֱזִיק בּוֹ הַמְקַטְרֵג. וְעַל זֶה שָׁנִינוּ שֶׁלֹּא צָרִיךְ לָאָדָם לְהִפָּרֵד מִכְּלָל שֶׁל רַבִּים, כְּדֵי שֶׁלֹּא יֵרָשֵׁם לְבַדּוֹ, וְלֹא יְקַטְרְגוּ עָלָיו מִלְמַעְלָה.
Continued from previous DZ
On Rosh Hashanah Life and Death aspects are evaluated for each individual. When the scale is in the middle then if a righteous person is among the people then they benefit from his merits and inscribed in the Book of Life. If an evil one is among them then they are inscribed to Death.
“ וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-הַשָּׂטָן, הֲשַׂמְתָּ לִבְּךָ עַל-עַבְדִּי אִיּוֹב: כִּי אֵין כָּמֹהוּ בָּאָרֶץ, אִישׁ תָּם וְיָשָׁר יְרֵא אֱלֹהִים וְסָר מֵרָע”
“Then YHVH said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil.””
In the book of Job we read that the Satan came to the judge on Rosh Hashanah to reveal the sins of the people. He asks for their ‘death’ but God sent him to deal with Job who was righteous but alone. God’s plan was to distract Satan from the people keeping Satan busy with one righteous individual instead of all the rest. The Zohar explains that because Job was alone, the Satan could harm him individually.
This teaches us that a person should be with good and righteous people so he will benefit from the merits of the group and the righteous ones among them. If the group include evil and selfish people then the good people may be judged to ‘death’ because of them.
We should associate ourselves with righteous people and righteous actions in order to be included in the Book of Life.
The best group to join is that of Rabbi Shimon who stands above those who study the Zohar and follow its teachings. When the time comes, he will be next to us to take us to ‘Life’.
Some people go to Kabbalah classes just to be seen and have some social life. The students of the Daily Zohar come to study with pure desire to learn and reveal light. This is a righteous group and I am happy that we have so many of them.
