VT: NEO – US: While No One Was Looking…[ Editor’s Note: What you are about to read in Gordon’s new NEO piece is not pretty. In fact, its damn ugly. But it is what it is, and readers looking for sugarcoating sure as hell don’t come to VT. Today y’all (I’m half Southern) are about to get a good dose of Gordon’s “How the world really works”. We actually have countries that ask for these briefings by VT people, not a lot, but some. One of the reasons is that they do not have complete trust in the Intel product they are getting from their own institutions due the huge investment and effort being made in disinformation atmospherics. It is a huge industry, pays very well, and we could be living financially cozy lives by being a part of it, but we have chosen a different path. And that was not because we are perfect or on a supremacist kick. We leave that to the Zionists. But we will brag with no embarrassment at taking credit for learning from our mistakes.


“Practical Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse”

This newsletter provides what is missing in the US mainstream media and what the American public needs to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We hope you never fail to make the connection between APPAF’s reported articles and the cause and effect of the Palestinian problem and the vicious Israeli occupation as its illegitimate heinous perpetrator

It follows the Admonitions of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson:
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second US President
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

We also invite you to visit www.APPAF.org website, and send us your feedback.

Please don’t forget that Palestine is as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and an Israeli problem.
