Jeffrey Zwi Epstein Migdal By Gilad Atzmon

31 August 2019 — Dissident Voice


The story of Jeffrey Epstein has lost its mystery as more and more commentators allow themselves to express the thought that it is a strong possibility that Epstein was connected to a crime syndicate affiliated with a Zionist political organisation or Israel and/or at least a few compromised intelligence agencies. Whitney Web and others have produced superb studies of possible scenarios, I would instead like to attack the topic from a cultural perspective. Epstein wasn’t the first Jewish sex trafficker. This seems like a good time to look back at Zwi Migdal, a Jewish global crime syndicate that operated a century ago and trafficked tens of thousands of Jewish women and under age girls as sex slaves. According to contemporary Jewish writer Giulia Morpurgo the Zwi Migdal had turned Argentina, “into a nightmare of prostitution and exploitation.”

Originally published: Venezuelanalysis by Alan Freeman (Interviewing Steve Ellner) (April 16, 2019)

Freeman: The progressive Latin American governments of the twenty-first century, the so-called Pink Tide governments, have over the recent past received heavy blows and have been replaced by conservative and right-wing governments in Brazil, Argentina and evidently Ecuador. What are people on the right saying about these setbacks for the left?

Don’t Spy for Me Argentina By Wayne Madsen

20 March 2019 — Strategic Culture Foundation

When an incompetent US President hires as his “special envoy” for regime change in Venezuela the very same buffoon who fumbled his way into helping to expose the Iran-Contra scandal, one can expect anything.

Abrams, by helping to mistakenly wire funds he solicited from the Sultan of Brunei that, instead ended up in the Swiss bank account of a shipping magnate, brought inquisitive attention on the Iran-Contra caper by Swiss banking authorities.

Last Thursday—on January 10—Nicolas Maduro was sworn in for his second term as president of Venezuela. “I tell the people,” Maduro said, “this presidential sash is yours. The power of this sash is yours. It does not belong to the oligarchy or to imperialism. It belongs to the sovereign people of Venezuela.”

These two terms—oligarchy and imperialism—define the problems faced by Maduro’s new government.

Who is Pope Francis? Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Argentina’s “Dirty War” By Prof Michel Chossudovsky

29 August 2018 — Global Research

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Argentina’s “Dirty War”

From the inception of his Vatican mandate in March 2013 until the recent sex scandal revelations in early 2018, Pope Francis has been portrayed by the Western media and the international community as a left leaning champion of “Liberation Theology” committed to World peace and global poverty alleviation.

Pope Francis is now accused of coverup, corruption and camouflage.

Israel scores painful own goal in run-up to the World Cup By Dr James M Dorsey

7 June 2018 — CounterCurrents

Argentina’s cancellation of a friendly against Israel because of Israeli attempts to exploit the match politically is likely to reverberate far beyond the world of soccer and spotlights the risks of Israeli efforts to persuade the international community to recognize Jerusalem as its capital.

NYT Failed to Note Op-Ed Authors' Funder Has $2 Billion Motive for Attacking Argentina By Eli Clifton/LobeLog

NYT: Iranian Terror. Argentinian Cover Up. Justice at Last?

The New York Times (12/11/17) did not disclose the authors’ financial interest in attacking Argentina.

Mark Dubowitz and Toby Dershowitz, two executives at the hawkish Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), took to the op-ed pages of the New York Times (12/11/17) to celebrate last week’s announcement that Argentina’s former president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, would face treason charges for her alleged role in covering up Iran’s alleged involvement in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aries that killed 85 people.

But their op-ed fails to disclose a serious financial conflict of interest underpinning their attacks on Kirchner: One of FDD’s biggest donors financed a multi-year public diplomacy campaign against Kirchner, all while attempting to collect $2 billion in debt from Argentina.

2 December 2013 — IPS

MALVINAS ARGENTINAS, Córdoba, Argentina , Dec 2 2013 (IPS) – The people of this working-class suburb of Córdoba in Argentina’s central farming belt stoically put up with the spraying of the week-killer glyphosate on the fields surrounding their neighbourhood.
