COINTELPRO.


Cointelpro is an acronym for the F.B.I Domestic Counter Intelligence Programme. It began in 1956 originally to target communist's
and expanded in the 1960's specifically to target the Black Civil rights Movements. Here is a small selection of the similar methods that were used against the black community that you will find being used against the Muslim Community 50 years later.

(1) The use of Agent Provocateurs. These individuals are usually plants their job was to encourage Militancy, through radical speeches, and also through direct violent action. The objective being to strike fear amongst the general Population of the Civil Rights Movement. Similar to the crazy indviduals that we used to get in the U.K. threatning that Muslims will take over the west and the flag Of Islam will fly over Downing Street, and Muslims are going to impose Sharia Law.

(2) The hijacking of legitimate advocacy organisations that is putting individuals into these organisations or black mailing or bribing indviduals within these organisations to work as plants so that they can be destroyed from with in. Couple that with relentless propoganda demonising the organisation, or a few scandals concerning it in the media and the organisation loses Support.

(3) Set up rival government funded advocacy organisations giving the impression that these organisations are actually grass roots. To make themselves seem more authentic these organisations will occasionally lobby on behalf of the community, but most of the time they will promote an establishment agenda.

(4) Promote Organisations and Indviduals from within the community, whose job is to re-inforce Racial stereotypes and stigmatise the entire community. Blame the community itself for all its Problems and all the social Problems affecting the wider society.

(5) The Use of Journalists and Media and stories being planted to demonise the community on regular basis.

(6) The use of individuals informants to spy in Mosques, student Muslim Societies in Universities across the Country etc.

Note: also every time the Police carry out a Counter Terrorism raid etc, the intelligence agencies will try and black mail or bribe people into working as informants. Even prominent individuals in the community, will be under constant surveillance if they have any skeletons in their closet then they will be blackmailed, I heard of one prominent Imam black mailed into working for them after he was caught during surveillance visiting Prostitutes.



Here is an Article.

The History of Surveillance and the Black Community

BY DIA KAYYALIFEBRUARY 13, 2014
February is Black History Month and that history is intimately linked with surveillance by the federal government in the name of "national security." Indeed, the history of surveillance in the African-American community plays an important role in the debate around spying today and in the calls for a congressional investigation into that surveillance. Days after the first NSA leaks emerged last June, EFF called for a new Church Committee. We mentioned that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was one of the targets of the very surveillance that eventually led to the formation of the first Church Committee. This Black History Month, we should remember the many African-American activists who were targeted by intelligence agencies. Their stories serve as cautionary tales for the expanding surveillance state.

The latest revelations about surveillance are only the most recent in a string of periodic public debates around domestic spying perpetrated by the NSA, FBI, and CIA. This spying has often targeted politically unpopular groups or vulnerable communities, including anarchists, anti-war activists, communists, and civil rights leaders.

Government surveillance programs, most infamously the FBI’s “COINTELPRO”, targeted Black Americans fighting against segregation and structural racism in the 1950s and 60s. COINTELPRO, short for Counter Intelligence Program, was started in 1956 by the FBI and continued until 1971. The program was a systemic attempt to infiltrate, spy on, and disrupt activists in the name of “national security.” While it initially focused on the Communist Party, in the 1960s its focus expanded to include a wide swathe of activists, with a strong focus on the Black Panther Party and civil rights leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

FBI papers show that in 1962 “the FBI started and rapidly continued to gravitate toward Dr. King.” This was ostensibly because the FBI believed black organizing was being influenced by communism. In 1963 FBI Assistant Director William Sullivan recommended “increased coverage of communist influence on the Negro.” However, the FBI’s goal in targeting Dr. King was clear: to find “avenues of approach aimed at neutralizing King as an effective Negro leader,” because the FBI was concerned that he might become a “messiah.”

The FBI subjected Dr. King to a variety of tactics, including bugging his hotel rooms, photographic surveillance, and physical observation of King’s movements by FBI agents. The FBI's actions went beyond spying on Dr. King, however. Using information gained from that surveillance, the FBI sent him anonymous letters attempting to “blackmail him into suicide.” The agency also attempted to break up his marriage by sending selectively edited “personal moments he shared with friends and women” to his wife.

The FBI also specifically targeted the Black Panther Party with the intention of destroying it. They infiltrated the Party with informants and subjected members to repeated interviews. Agents sent anonymous letters encouraging violence between street gangs and the Panthers in various cities, which resulted in “the killings of four BPP members and numerous beatings and shootings,” as well as letters sowing internal dissension in the Panther Party. The agency also worked with police departments to harass local branches of the Party through raids and vehicle stops. In one of the most disturbing examples of this, the FBI provided information to the Chicago Police Department that aided in a raid on BPP leader Fred Hampton’s apartment. The raid ended with the Chicago Police shooting Hampton dead.

The FBI was not alone in targeting civil rights leaders. The NSA also engaged in domestic spying that included Dr. King. In an eerily prescient statement, Senator Walter Mondale said he was concerned that the NSA “could be used by President 'A' in the future to spy upon the American people, to chill and interrupt political dissent.”

The Church Committee was created in response to these and other public scandals, and was charged with getting to the bottom of the government's surveillance overreach. In response to its findings, Congress passed new laws to provide privacy safeguards, including the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. But ever since these safeguards were put in place, the intelligence community has tried to weaken or operate around them. The NSA revelations show the urgent need to reform the laws governing surveillance and to rein in the intelligence community.

Today we’re responding to those domestic surveillance abuses by an unrestrained intelligence branch. The overreach we’ve seen in the past underscores the need for reform. Especially during Black History Month, let’s not forget the speech-stifling history of US government spying that has targeted communities of color.

Some points to note in relation to the above post.

The Organisation MEND was setup as a legitimate organisation to tackle Issues of Islamophobia. The Establishment first targetted it with propaganda.

Then the Government helped start and fund an organisation called MAMA.

The MCB the government targeted with propaganda after they vehemently opposed the Gulf War. and effectivley shunned it, they then helped setup a group called the Sufi Muslim Council as a rival this has to be the only organisation. Whos inaugaration took place in the British Houses of Parliament. The Sufi Muslim Council was a spectacular failure the Charlatan who helped set it up Haras Rafiq is now one of the Executives of the Quilliam Foundation.

The conservative Government then helped set up a group call the Conservative Muslim Forum, the Chairman of this group Mohammed Amin, tried to obtain the leadership of the MCB during the leadership election he failed spectacularly. so in effect the government tried to organise an inside coupe.

There has been consistent Propaganda targeting the Muslim organisation CAGE.

Other organisation like Inspire run by Sarah Khan, a so-called anti-extremism think tank was set up main purpose of this group is villifying Islam and Muslims and groups like Cage.

There are many more of these Puppet government organisations led by people from a Muslim Background "The Muslim Womens Network," "The Council Of Ex-Muslims" " IMAAN which is an organisation for ' Homosexual Muslims"
"The Association Of British Muslims" and "British Muslims For Secular Democracy". Both Progrssive Muslim Organisations.

Probably a few others I have Not Heard Of.

The Precursor to Ethnic cleansing.

In the 1999 Summer issue of the Arkansas Historical Quarterly , Researchers Jaqueline Froelich, and David Zimmerman wrote an article titled “Total Eclipse: The Destruction of the African American Community of Harrison Arkansas,"

They narrate the story of the ethnic cleansing that took place in the town of Harrison, Arkansas in 1909 when a blackman by the name of Charles Stinnet was accused of the rape of a white woman, that led to white lynch mobs forming and Muderous riots targeting the black population causing them to flee in terror.

The Ethnic cleansing of Harrison Arkansas is not an isolated incident but was fairly common across rural America sometimes a genuine act of Rape was committed by a black perpetrator, but often times the allegations were false.

In his book, "Blood at the Root" the author Patrick Philips narrates the story of ethnic cleansing that took place in Forsyth County Georgia; in 1912 when white mobs terrorised and drove out the entire black population, about 1,100 people. This was the white response to two incidents - the alleged rape of a white woman by a black man and the rape and beating of a young white woman who died of her injuries. A lynch mob attacked and hanged one black suspect. Two teenagers were hanged in public executions following a short trial.

Similarly Murray Bishoff, editor of the Monett Times wrote a series of article on the Ethnic cleansing which took place in Pierce City Missouri On August 19, 1901, white residents in Pierce City (spelled "Peirce City" until the early 1920s) ignited a 15-hour rampage with weapons stolen from a state militia arsenal and violently banished the town’s 300 black residents. Three black men were lynched, allegedly in response to the murder of a 23-year-old white woman.

The demonisation of Black men as sexual predators representing a clear threat to white women, was common amongst the news of the day, white civic leaders, and white nationalist organisations would fan the flames and feed into the racial bigotry to incite the white community's towards volence and ethnic cleansing.

Fast forward a hundred years later and across Europe there has been hysteria whipped up about Muslim Refugees Raping white women many of those stories completely fake. With the premise being that rape of non-muslim women is an Islamic Doctrine.

And Only a few decades ago in America there were still these racial tropes about the savage Black Man, raping white women.

In the U.K. as recently as the 1980's Organisations like the National front/BNP were printing leaflets about Black Afro-carribean men raping white women. Prior to the genocide in Bosnia the Serbs used similar propoganda to demonise the muslims, and in Myanmar the Buddhists have been using similar propaganda
to villify the Rohingya for years.

On the basis of the criminal behaviour of street gangs, There is an agenda to dehumanise the entire Muslim community, led by the Media and the far right Islamaphobe groups....As has been evidenced by every genocide in the last century, the demonisation and dehumanisation is preceded by a genocide.

Members of Parliament and Journalists who have spoken out against stigmatising the entire Muslim Community, due to the behaviour of Criminal gangs involved in Prostitution and sex Trafficking. Have been targetted on Social Media and campaigns launch against them. What is unfortunate here is that some Muslim opportunists have jumped on the bandwagon to help endorse and encourage the demonisation of the entire muslim community.

Yes is it possible for the mods to transfer, this thread to the main forum.

So I can build on it concerning the present situation in GAZA, and the psy-op being carried out.

The art of deception: How Israel uses ‘hasbara’ to whitewash its crimes

The Israelis have long relied on a public diplomacy strategy to dominate the arena of narrative control and information manipulation.
As Israel conducts its latest round of aggression against the Palestinians, the prevailing narrative often peddled in mainstream western media outlets continues to be implicitly framed to favour the Israeli narrative.

Under the guise of neutrality, media discourse has been to describe the conflict flaring up in occupied East Jerusalem as “clashes” between “both sides”. Israel’s ruthless bombardment of Gaza leading to the deaths of hundreds of civilians is rationalised as an act of “self defence” in response to Hamas’ indiscriminate rocket attacks and their use of “human shields”.

The Israeli state is deeply aware that perception shapes reality. While it commits alleged war crimes with impunity, it can only do so if there is a powerful enough propaganda machine it can deploy to counter inevitable public condemnation and international solidarity with Palestinians.

Enter 'hasbara’ – Israel’s primary messaging tool.

Hasbara – Hebrew for explanation – is a public diplomacy technique which links information warfare with the strategic objectives of the Israeli state. Public diplomacy is to be strategically conceived as a foreign policy priority, whereby a positive image of Israel is cultivated on the world stage, especially considering the image challenges Israel has continuously faced since its creation in 1948.

While rooted in earlier concepts of agitprop and censorship, hasbara does not look to jam the supply of contradictory information to audiences. Instead, it willingly accepts an open marketplace of opinion. What it seeks to do in this context is to promote selective listening by limiting the receptivity of audiences to information, rather than constricting its flow.

To accomplish its mission, hasbara targets diplomats, politicians and the public through mass media. It is also accomplished through numerous institutes and government agencies, as well as in research centres, universities, NGOs and lobbying firms.

Israel even offers hasbara fellowships, scholarships and grants to foster pro-Israeli advocacy, while a number of individuals from journalists to bloggers work to spin a positive image of the country.

Hasbara 2.0

Following the 2006 Lebanon war and ‘Operation Cast Lead’ two years later, both of which seriously damaged Israeli’s international reputation, there was a gradual shift between 2008 to 2012, to what the scholar Miriyam Aouragh called “Hasbara 2.0”: an assertive digital diplomacy that accounted for web 2.0 technologies like social media and YouTube.

Soon, hasbara-styled initiatives from the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) were being synchronised into a new online branch, with a permanent team operating in liaison with the Ministry of Strategic Affairs in 2008.

In 2012, Israel would announce its war against Gaza on Twitter. During ‘Operation Pillar of Defense’, as Israeli-funneled talking points saturated the US and European media landscape, hasbara made heavy use of the more distilled communication channels of social media. It further exploited browser functions, search engine algorithms, and other automated mechanisms that controlled what content were presented to viewers.

In the process, Israel designed a narrative of itself as the innocent victim of Palestinian terrorism, one that was accorded with the sovereign right of defense against existential assault. This, despite the fact of having initiated the escalation, possessing advanced aerial power against an adversary without one, and unloading more than one thousand times as many tons of munitions on Gazans.

In 2014, Israel’s war in Gaza under ‘Operation Protective Edge’ prompted a much greater pushback to its media narrative, clearly underestimating the extent of the global outrage to their actions in Gaza.

As images of destruction and dismembered bodies of innocent civilians flooded social media, hasbara proponents were forced to re-double their efforts in well-orchestrated PR campaigns that attempted to reframe war crimes with talking points to whitewash any disproportionate use of force – which even ended up being ineffective back in Israel.

Desperate measures

In the event this posturing fails, there are a few well-worn strategies in their arsenal that hasbara engineers have resorted to.

One has been to force the public to make a choice between Israel and Hamas. Today, we continually see this dichotomy played out on international broadcast segments; in doing so, Israel is framed as a rational and innocent actor provoked by an irrational terrorist threat, making any criticism of Israel’s actions de facto apologia for terrorism.

While a number of western governments have designated Hamas a terror organisation including the US and the European Union, Norway and Switzerland, they still maintain diplomatic ties with the group. Australia, New Zealand and the UK only consider its military wing a terrorist organisation. A number of other states outside of the West do not label it a terrorist organisation, and the UN in 2018 rejected a US resolution to condemn it as a terror organisation.

Probably the most common tactic has been to link any criticism of Israeli policies, whether its human rights violations or illegal colonisation of Palestinian land, to anti-Semitism.

One of the strategic threats in recent years has been the growing Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Israeli officials have attempted to smear those who support BDS as anti-Semitic and claim it is linked to terrorism, while anti-BDS laws have been passed in the US.

Online, it has translated into pushing prominent social media companies to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance working definition of anti-Semitism, which widens potential accusation of anti-Semitism to criticism of Israel.

The weaponisation of social justice issues and appropriation of ‘woke’ language is another frequently adopted strategy. For example the narrative of how Israel is the “only democracy” in the Middle East is repeated ad infinitum; indicating its the lone country which respects human rights and the rule of law in an otherwise regressive and hostile region.

“Pinkwashing” – cynically exploiting LGBTQ+ rights to amplify a progressive veneer and conceal Israeli crimes – has been added to the hasbara repertoire, along with the support for animal rights to “veganwash” occupation.

Ultimately, this discourse is meant to operate in juxtaposition against the “backward” Palestinian – to further dehumanise them among western audiences and soften criticism of Israel.

Bismillah.

The above posts from the TRT magazine display a well worn and tested strategy.

(1) Never allow the history or roots of the conflict into the discourse.

Only allow a narrow window in the present time to be discussed. If any media diverges from this they are branded as giving succour and
sustenance to terrorist or evil propaganda.

(2) Never allow the Israeli attrocities to be clearly be discussed.

Anything the Israelis are accused of is portrayed as either a lie or anti-semitic propaganda, or simply an accident. With no evil intent.

This is the same strategy the Americans have deployed in numerous conflicts. In particular in Iraq and Afghanistan.

(3) The Zero Tolerance Approach.
To Make sure the main stream media. Remains complicit.
.
Any journalist who deviates from the pro-Israel script is immediately reprimanded. For something seemingly trivial and innocuos. And the broadcasters quickly issue an apology. And retraction.
There are hundreds of examples but to just give one.

On August 18 2020 the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. On its Show called "the current" used the word Palestine. The show and its host was forced by the Zionist lobby to issue an apology the very next day, for using "Palestine" instead of "Palestinian territories".

The science and effectiveness of the Zero tolerance approach, can be understood when one looks at how it has been used in other areas.

In the 1990's New York city was gripped by violent crime fuelled by the crack cocaine pandemic. In 1994 the police adopted a zero tolerance approach, they started arresting people for minor crimes, and infractions from loitering on the street, drinking beer in public. Sitting on a park bench after dark. What they found was when you target individuals for minor infractions that curtails them from major crimes.

Back to the use of the word "Palestine" being censored, on CBC. The Israel lobby were afraid if the word "Palestine" was used today, that tomorrow they might tell people about its history and how Israel was created on its land through, colonialism, ethnic cleansing, and genocide.

Note: Vast majority of people in the west dont know how Israel was created the Nakba of 1948 is always described as Israels war of independence.
The British Colonisation and complicity along with the Balfour declaration is totally unknown amongst the public in Britain itself.

One of the most important branches of Zionist propaganda. Over the last 30 years, has been to portray and re-frame the Palestinian struggle as part of a wider conflict between Islam and the West.

To those ends these sufferers of the Holocaust have funded extreme far right neo-nazi groups and political parties in Europe. To help villify Islam and Muslim refugees.
Groups such as EDL, stop Islamisation Of Europe, Pegida, have received funding from Zionists. And leaders have been given guided tours to Israel.

Here is an article from Al Jazeera.

1. Is it through my actions
2. Or is it through my comments.

Actions demand sacrifices, like I may have to sacrifice my luxuries, change my lifestyle, adopt a simple lifestyle. I am addicted to a few sedatives offered by the west, when I stop the sedatives, I may suffer due to "withdrawal symptoms" and it will be painful.

Offering comments doesn't cost me anything.
