So, is this part of that “Jewish lobby” I’ve heard-tell of so often?
Former CIA director George Tenet has acknowledged that elements of the counterintelligence investigation against a former Jewish attorney at the agency in the 1990s could be construed as anti-Semitic.
Tenet acknowledged this in a previously undisclosed sworn deposition, part of a privacy act lawsuit filed by the former attorney, Adam Ciralsky. In 1999, Ciralsky’s security clearance was revoked because of his alleged lack of candor about contact with Israelis and Israeli-Americans, effectively ending his brief career with the CIA. For the last dozen years Ciralsky has sued the CIA to bring to light how he believes a few agency officials—motivated by anti-Semitism—targeted him unfairly. On Friday he dropped his case.
“I am proud of my service with the CIA and have a deep and abiding respect for the organization and its mission,” Ciralsky said in a statement. “I am equally proud that by highlighting and confronting the misconduct of a few, I spurred positive change.”
While Tenet acknowledged in a 1999 letter to the Anti-Defamation League that some of the conduct of CIA investigators in the Ciralsky case was inappropriate, Tenet goes further and into more detail in the new deposition. Tenet authorized sensitivity training for the CIA on anti-Semitism following allegations of misconduct in the Ciralsky investigation. At the time the CIA said Ciralsky’s dismissal was not the result of anti-Jewish prejudice.
According to the transcript of a 2010 deposition viewed exclusively by The Daily Beast, Tenet said statements attributed to an officer who administered a polygraph to Ciralsky were “insensitive, inappropriate and unprofessional”—and could be construed as anti-Semitic.
The statement in question was from a polygraph administrator identified as “Charles B” in the court transcripts. In a sworn declaration, another CIA polygraph administrator, John Sullivan said, “I was in B’s office when he came and I asked him how the test was going. B’s response was to refer to Ciralsky as ‘that little Jew bastard.’ I don’t recall what B said after that but I believe that he said something to the effect that he, B, ‘knew Ciralsky was hiding something.’”
Who would construe that as antisemitic?
Prominent Norwegian academic and founder of ‘peace and conflict studies’, Johan Galtung, claims that Jews control media, silence spurs antisemitism.
In an article published on Monday in the Norwegian magazine ‘Humanist’, professor Johan Galtung, founder of the academic discipline of ‘peace and conflict studies’ and an ‘Alternative Nobel Price’ laureate, lashes out against what he claims to be the ‘Jewish dominance’ of mass media.
Quoting an Pak Alert Press article republished on an internet blog focusing on islamic issues, he claims that ‘Six Jewish Companies own 96 % of world media’ and that ‘the directors of the three largest media conglomerates Walt Disney, Time Warner and Viacom are Jews; Similarly the three largest TV channels ABC, CBS and NBC before they joined the conglomerates.’
Galtung moves on to present a long list of American newspapers, publishing houses and movie production companies, which he states is under Jewish ownership.
- Is this coincidental for 1.9 percent of the US population? the Norwegian professor asks, adding that Jewish ownership is the equivalent of ‘Jewish control’. He links this to a bias on Middle East coverage, by pointing to several Jews who have stated that ‘Jews that write in the media, have a role to defend Israel.’
First of all, “prominent” can never be used to modify “Norwegian”, even in Norway—with the possible exception of Vidkun Quisling, the Nazi collaborator during WWII, whom Professor Galtung would remember. Galtung might also remember fondly the arrest and deportation of Jews under Quisling’s and the Nazi’s rule, and the seizure of their property.
It’s funny how this stuff isn’t better known in the Jew-dominated media.
