COMMENTARIES

VT: The Usury Based System. Towards A Worldwide Financial Disaster?
By Jonas E. Alexis. New World Order agents are in charge of all Western governments and of the military-industrial-intelligence-media complex, and they have shown themselves capable of killing anyone who gets out of line, as they did to JFK, perpetrating false flag events to stampede the populace into obedience, as they did with 9-11, or destroying whole nations as they did with Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, and now Syria.

Note from Tom; I want to thank ICH readers for pointing out the fact that this story has been denied by Al Jazeera (Al Jazeera responds to Sputnik chemical attack report: Russian agency Sputnik has published fake news about Al Jazeera – its claims amount to defamation punishable by law. ) Please read the comments at the base of the article.

Information about television channel Al-Jazeera’s stringers allegedly filming a staged chemical attack by government forces against civilians in Syria was not confirmed.


ICH: Slavehood 2017 By Peter Koenig. When in the 18th and 19th Century African slaves did not ‘behave’, they were cruelly beaten sometimes to death as a deterrent for others. They were deprived of food for their families. Their women were raped. They were traded to even harsher white masters. Their lives were worth only what their labor could produce. They were treated as subjects, devoid of human warmth.

“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.
