Jewish Congress Menaces Homeless Newspaper Over My Articles
January 11, 2008
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
The Canadian Jewish Congress wants to close down The Toronto Street News over its policy of running articles from my web site. The end of the Street News would deprive 50 impoverished people of about $300 a month which they earn by selling it, says Editor and Publisher, Victor Fletcher, 63.
Last year, the CJC also complained about my website to the Canadian Human Rights Commission without success.
Victor has been publishing the bi-weekly street newspaper for nine years. He gives it to the homeless for 25 cents or less, and they sell it for an average of $2.00 a copy. The newspaper sells 4500 copies per issue.
“It gives the the homeless a sense of dignity,” he says. “I have been subsidizing it all of these years. I lose money and would quit if I could make myself do it, but I can't.”
“It's my therapy. Otherwise, I might do something drastic because there's so many outrageous things happening.”
Fletcher prints stories the mainstream media won't touch, like the spread of tuberculosis in homeless shelters.
He says the CJC, which has a multi-million dollar budget and about 20 staff members, got the Toronto police to demand he stop printing my work, as well as issue an apology and allow the CJC to print a statement. Fletcher says the police told him the CJC received more complaints from Toronto Jews about my column in the Street News than about anything else.
Fletcher admits he screwed up when he carelessly ran a screed from Hal Turner's website without reading it carefully. He has printed an apology for that. But he says the CJC is trying to tar me as a racist like Turner but he is drawing the line. He will not print their statement.
In the statement, Len Rudner, the Ontario Regional Director for Canadian Jewish Congress, CJC says:
"In his December 1st – 20th article “The Worst Anti-Semites are Zionists,” Henry Makow offers his theory that the Jewish people somehow control the world’s money. He claims, among other things, that the Zionists have taken over the US government and that organized American Jewry run the central bank. According to Makow, this (Jewish) cartel "is behind all major wars and depressions of the past 300 years, behind Communism, Fascism and the Holocaust, behind 9-11 and the bogus war on terror."
It is incomprehensible that in this day and age of tolerance and enlightened thinking one could blame the world’s problems on “the Jews”. Has history taught us so little that we still blame “the Other” for all the world’s problems? The Jewish people make up less than half a percent of the world’s population…it is preposterous to accuse “the Jews” of controlling world finances. Preposterous of course for most Canadians but not those whose goal is to advance the concept of the Jews as evil. It is nothing but hateful rhetoric that should find no home in any respectable publication.
It is unconscionable that these opinions find space in any newspaper in Canada. These comments are beyond offensive, and may be criminal. Printing these beliefs is irresponsible. The Toronto Street News has, to its credit, acknowledged their error in providing a forum for these pieces and apologized. It has also agreed not to publish Turner or Makow again.
The Toronto Street News provides a valuable service for its constituency but that service ought not to include a platform to promote hatred. The decision of this paper to discontinue the publication of articles by Turner and Makow represents an important confirmation that the Toronto Street News understands the role that it plays and the responsibility that it carries."
Rudner is using the tired, disingenuous sleight-of-hand of characterizing opposition to the Zionist political agenda as “hatred of Jews.” By his logic, the majority of American Jews are antisemitic because the majority are against the war in Iraq.
Zionism is a gimmick the central banking cartel uses to cause wars to weaken all countries and religions and fold them into a thinly-veiled one world dictatorship. All countries are ruled by traitors, "globalists" --who are the lackeys of this international cartel. This is why there is not one serious contender against the Iraq war. Israel will be the HQ of the banker world government. It is their private fiefdom and helps spread their hegemony. Israel has nothing to do with being a Jewish Homeland.
I have never blamed “The Jews” or said “Jews control money.” If that were true, I would control money. I speak of the central banking cartel. It's time they and their lackeys like Rudner stop hiding behind Jewish skirts.
I have always blamed the world government conspiracy on a union of European (mainly British-American) aristocracy and Jewish finance joined by money, marriage and Freemasonry (i.e. Cabala.)
I have always said an elite or Illuminati conspiracy has subverted every social institution incl. government, religion,education, business and media. If anything, I am criticized by antisemites for showing how broadly-based this conspiracy is. For example, the Toronto Police Dept. has a Masonic pyramid with an unfinished capstone in front of its College St. headquarters.
Significantly Rudner cites “Zionists are the Worst Anti Semites.” This article exposes his real fear: that ordinary Jews will recognize that Zionists have shackled them to Israel at the expense of everything else.
In the article, Jewish educator Harry Hurwitz accuses Zionists of “poisoning the air of Jewish communal life in America” and “suppressing the basic American principles of free speech and free press.” How ironic!
Hurwitz lamented that American Jews have lost their separate identity and become hostages of the Zionist agenda. This is so they can be used as a political instrument.
Rudner exemplifies the worst qualities of Jewish political discourse, intellectual dishonesty and authoritarianism. In the name of "tolerance," he would intimidate and shut down anyone who exposes his agenda for what it really is. This authoritarian spirit, so like Communism and Fascism, is engulfing the world under the ruse of the "War on Terror."
In 2000, the CJC led the way in the removal of Christian prayer from government and schools.
Rudner is making my point: that Zionism plays a significant role in the Luciferian New World Order and disorganized Jewry should play no part in it. The NWO conspiracy has a long history of manipulating ordinary Jews. They put Hitler in power. Nazis and Zionists cooperated to make Jews go to Israel. They sacrificed Jews to give moral impunity to their pernicious agenda.
Adolf Eichmann said Budapest Zionist President Rudolph Kastner "rendered us a great service by helping keep the deportation camps peaceful,[by lying about the destination of the trains so] I let his [Zionist] groups escape. After all, I was not concerned with small groups of a thousand or so Jews."—A. Eichmann, "Eichmann Tells His Own Damning Story", Life Magazine, Volume 49, Number 22, (28 November 1960), pp. 19-25, 101-112; and "Eichmann's Own Story: Part II", Life Magazine, (5 December 1960), pp. 146-161; at 146.

"I'm mad as hell about it," says Fletcher. "I have not yet begun to fight."
