In the Pantheon of the Gods: Max Konrardy & Simon Hytten

For the historical record--providing individuation and proving truth to the commenter who once suggested that Simon Shack and 'hoi poloi' were one and the same person.

I remember the moment depicted in the image as if it were yesterday. Hearing all the different languages and accents surrounding me induced a kind of hallucinatory vertigo that gave me the sensation I was spinning at the universal axis mundi as I turned around and around in that circular building. Surely this was just a precursor impression of similar vortexes imaginable for the temple mount in December, 2012?

Once, I implied that I found no evidence that Simon Shack actually created the September Clues series of videos. I wasn't knowledgeable at the time about the history of internet message board participation that preceded the release of his work in June of 2007. Someone who is knowledgeable, informed me that the fundamental insights into the principles of video fakery and no-plane theory were a public group effort. That primary record of an organic interpersonal rising awareness was part of the work "lost" when the 911movement.org message board disappeared, suddenly and without a trace, about the time "The Vicsim Report" was issued in October, 2009.

If there is a fault to "September Clues," it would be that the work fails to give credit to the half-dozen to a dozen pseudonymous men and women who participated in the unraveling of this basic cognitive knot in the perceptible tapestry of 9/11.

Recently, in a related board exchange, someone named 'Fred' expressed his revulsion at my work, saying he was not impressed by any legitimate research that came out from an 'insider' to the plot---the 'honey' in the 'pot' whose issuance entices the unwary into letting down their guard.

I know exactly how he feels. When I began researching the Pentagon attack in early 2006, the field was dominated by Aldo Marquis and Craig Ranke, the pair behind the badly named 'Citizen Investigation Team.' I can still recollect the mixture of gall and gratitude with which I greeted many of their contributions, still dripping with the exudate of some official file cabinet.

I don't worry that, upon reflection, 'Fred' will realize the difference between what I have contributed, and the work of people who came before me---say, Russell Pickering and Jim Hoffman. The 271 blogs I have published here since March 13, 2006 are, if nothing else, a record of a slow and painful awakening. If ever I was used as the conduit for an 'official' release, I was unwitting to the act. But to the Gods I owe everything.

And the question I once posed about Simon I must ask about his partner, Max Konrardy, the young man who posts under the name "hoi poloi.' Konrardy is the author of The Vicsim Report, the theoretical work that posits the victims of 9/11 were---for the most part, now---computer generated fictions. This finely edited 80-page thesis came upon the scene fully formed and sui genesis---or perhaps again, it is only I who lacks the knowledge of its beginnings. I think it fair to ask its author for a history of how he came to his understanding of the matter.

For me, my personal great awakening can be timestamped January 4, 2007, when I first published insights about the false nature of the narrative as it concerned a fake burn victim, in Brian Birdwell: How to Serve Man---although the actual insight was so shocking and uncomfortable that it came several months before I could begin to speak about it publicly. I would be curious for Max Konrardy to tell us the story of how he came to his analysis of the computer code underlying the CNN memorial web site.

For what goes up in this world, must come down, sooner or later.

The Nuremberg Tribunal, as Seen From Above

I believe I've developed a logical progression that provide a piece of evidence for an extremely difficult thesis. You've heard of the attacks of September 11th described as "the big lie," haven't you? Well get ready, you haven't heard the half of it.

I propose that the European Jewish holocaust from the 1930's and 40's may be an entirely false and fabricated psychological operation, a war department public relations scam, and a fraud with an agenda, but without a grain of truth. For if the Jewish holocaust is unreal, the real holocausts---like the murder of 20,000 Poles at the hands of the Soviet Bolshevik secret police---would receive no attention and no justice.

To proceed, I'll offer three pieces of evidence.

I'm sure everybody is familiar with the plane crash a few days ago that killed the president of Poland, along with his wife, and many of their politically connected colleagues. They were in flight to attend the 70th anniversary memorial of the murder of 20,000 of their fellow Polish leaders in a grave genocidal massacre at the hands of Soviet Bolshevik secret police and prison guards.

There has been some confusion over the years about who actually killed the Polish prisoners---with the Germans and Russians blaming each other. That trick was possible because the Germans had invaded Russia and taken control of the burial site in September 1941---holding it until the Russians recaptured it in September, 1943. But it was in April of 1943 when Germany announced to the world they had uncovered thousands of bodies laying in mass graves. They brought in doctors, forensic witnesses, and other observers from a dozen different countries to document the disinterring.

The Polish had been imprisoned by the Soviet authorities in late 1939, and their families hadn't heard a word, or gotten any mail after May of 1940---later it turned out their death warrants had been signed on May 5, 1940---so it's likely the killing began then. American and British officials just disavowed any knowledge of the event.

The most important fact I want you to keep in mind here is that it was the Germans who notified the world of the genocide, holding press conferences, and bringing in doctors and professional forensics experts to make a careful record of the manifest results that were found. Two American military officers were released from German P.O.W. camps in order that first-hand word could be brought back to Washington. The Soviet's only tactic was to just place the blame elsewhere, like the messagers.

The second piece of evidence I offer is that despite the Soviets ultimately accepting responsibility for the killings decades later, in 1946, the victorious Allies still tried to pin blame for this Polish genocide on the German Nazis, as if they didn't know any better. During the famously cathartic Nuremberg trials, the Germans were already being charged with the genocide of European Jewry anyway, so why not clean up 20,000 more wrongful deaths?

In his 1993 Western Illinois University, Department of History master's thesis, 'The Katyn Massacre: A Assessment of Its Significance As A Public and Historical Issue in the United States and Great Britain, 1940-1993,' Louis Robert Coatney
"In the following year, 1946, the Soviets attempted to raise Katyn as a Nazi war crimes issue at Nuremberg. The Soviets formally charged the Nazis with the Katyn Massacre and put it on the agenda for prosecution. They may have assumed, after the apparent acquiescence of the West on the matter of Katyn during the war, that the court would be inclined to support the Soviet position regarding this episode.

"In any case, a Nuremberg finding of German guilt for Katyn would thereby make the Western powers officially subscribe to the lie. As Sir Owen O'Malley had foreseen, the Katyn episode at Nuremberg did indeed become a particular embarrassment, especially for the Western Allies who were actually claiming to believe in the humanitarian ideals for which violation the Nazi war criminals were being prosecuted.

"The Nuremberg war crimes trials, with their condemnation of mass murder and other totalitarian and/or criminal misdeeds had been intended to be a moral cornerstone of the postwar world. However, Katyn would reemphasize the trials' one-sided nature and leave an inescapable impression of hypocrisy. The handling of Katyn made evident the fact that the trials certainly did not uphold the ideal of "justice for all." Hermann Goering and Rudolf Hess removed their headphones in disgust and many of the other Nazi war criminals laughed in derision as the judicial triumvirate (which included a Soviet prosecutor, General Rudenko) solemnly intoned against the German defendants for planning military aggression against Poland in 1939--which they had indeed done, with the active collaboration of their Soviet cosignators to the 1939 Stalin- Hitler Pact.

"A leading witness for the Soviet case was Dr. (M.D.) Markov from Bulgaria, who had served on the German-sponsored "International Commission" which had investigated Katyn. Since the Soviet takeover of Bulgaria, Dr. Markov had recanted his previous opinion that the Soviets were guilty of Katyn. Coincidentally, the death sentence which had been decreed for Dr. Markov by the Soviet-backed Bulgarian government was suspended. At Nuremberg, Dr. Markov claimed his earlier statements indicating Soviet responsibility for the crime had been made under Nazi coercion.

"The German defense attorney produced testimony from other members of the German commission that their findings had not been made under German intimidation. Even more embarrassing for the Allies, there voluntarily appeared at Nuremberg Colonel Ahrens, the former commander of the German communications unit--the 537th Signal Regiment--accused of performing the Katyn Massacre by the Soviets. He quickly and convincingly denied the Soviet charges of his guilt, proving that he was not commanding the unit or even in the area at the time of the killings alleged by the Soviets. When the Soviets then tried to accuse his predecessor, Colonel Bedenk, that gentleman also promptly appeared to deny and refute his guilt with equal alacrity. The only alternative to the Germans being guilty for Katyn was embarrassingly obvious, and, significantly, Katyn was omitted from the list of Nazi war crimes in the final Nuremberg judgment. Nonetheless, the 1946 Facts on File coverage of the issue of Katyn at Nuremberg only described the Bulgarian
Dr. Markov's pro-Soviet testimony."
The United States Congress undertook an investigation of this little matter of genocide, and on December 22, 1952, it issued a blistering final summation, 'House Report 2505, 82nd Congress Concerning The Katyn Forest Massacre,' which became commonly known by the name of its chairman, as the 'Madden Report.'

In the report, Madden takes on Justice Jackson, the chief United States prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials, who had been the United States Attorney General in 1940 and 1941, when he got named to the U.S. Supreme Court, where he served until 1954,. He took a leave of absence in 1945 and 1946 to serve as the chief of counsel for the prosecution of Nazi war criminals. He has the distinction of being the last Supreme Court justice appointed to the bench who did not graduate from any law school. Madden has Jackson as saying
That he had received no instructions or information concerning the Katyn massacre. When asked to explain how the Katyn affair happened to come on the agenda of the Nuremberg trials under the indictment of Herman Goring, he stated that the Soviets were responsible for drawing indictments on war crimes committed in Eastern Europe. Mr. Justice Jackson stated as follows:

"To the United States was allocated the over-all conspiracy to incite and wage a war of aggression. The British were assigned the violation of specific treaties and crimes on the high seas. Violations of the laws of war and crimes against humanity were divided on a geographical basis. The French undertook crimes in Western Europe, and the Soviet prosecution was assigned the duty of preparing and presenting evidence of crimes in Eastern Europe--an area largely in Soviet occupation, and to much of which the others of us had no access. The geographical area thus assigned to the Soviet representatives included Katyn Wood and Poland as well, but at that time it was not known that the Katyn massacre would be involved."

When asked by the committee if he had received the various reports then in the files of the State Department and Army Intelligence (G-21, Mr. Justice Jackson testified that he had not. When asked by the committee what he would have done if he had received these reports, he replied as follows:

"Of course, any information would have been helpful. If we had had information of that kind, I cannot pass on whether this would have been adequate, but if we had had adequate information of Russian guilt, we would not have consented at all to have the charge against the Nazis. It would have strengthened our hand in keeping it out immensely and probably would have resulted in the Soviets not making the accusation."

Before this committee was formed, many allegations were made that Americans on Mr. Jackson’s staff at Nuremberg assisted the Soviets in the preparation of this case on Katyn against the Nazis. The committee desired to clarify this point and specifically asked Mr. Jackson this question, and he denied that any member of his staff participated in the preparation of the Katyn indictment. The committee viewed with interest Mr. Justice Jackson’s statement in his testimony which is as follows:

"This history will show that, if it is now deemed possible to establish responsibility for the Katyn murders, nothing that was decided by the Nuremberg Tribunal or contended for by the American prosecution will stand in your way."
What Jackson is saying is, since the prosecution of the Nazi's for the crime of the Katyn genocide had to be aborted publicly mid trial because of the ridicule it generated, that no injustice befell any defendant. They were all to be ultimately convicted and executed on other evidence, right? Here is Jackson intoning his opening remarks
"When I say that we do not ask for convictions unless we prove crime, I do not mean mere technical or incidental transgression of international conventions. We charge guilt on planned and intended conduct that involves moral as well as legal wrong. And we do not mean conduct that is a natural and human, even if illegal cutting of corners, such as many of us might well have committed had we been in the defendants' positions. It is not because the yielded to the normal frailties of human beings that we accuse them. It is their abnormal and inhuman conduct which brings them to this bar.
"We will not ask you to convict these men on the testimony of their foes. There is no count in the Indictment that cannot be proved by books and records. The Germans were always meticulous record keepers, and these defendants had their share of the Teutonic passion for thoroughness in putting things on paper. Nor were they without vanity. They arranged frequently to be photographed in action. We will show you their own films. You will see their own conduct and hear their own voices as these defendants re-enact for you. from the screen, some of the events in the course of the conspiracy.
"We would also make clear that we have no purpose to incriminate the whole German people. We know that the Party was not put in power by a majority of the German vote. We know it came to power by an evil alliance between the most extreme of the Nazi revolutionists, the most unrestrained of the German reactionaries and the most aggressive of the German militarists."
The "the various reports then in the files of the State Department and Army Intelligence" that the Committee asked Jackson about, which he said he never saw, were the several of which, they either disappeared, got lost, or were mislaid. In other words, the evidence contained within them were so categorically imperative, they required suppression in order to steer another course. Lou Coatney tells us
"At the governmental plane, a secret memorandum by British Ambassador to Poland O'Malley, describing the overwhelming evidence of Soviet guilt, was circulated to the American and British leaders. O'Malley forecast the moral dilemma that continued Anglo-American cooperation in the Soviet coverup and counter-accusation campaign (that the *Germans* had done it) would have on the Allies' "moral crusade" against the Nazis and on any postwar war crimes trials. (In fact, in 1946 Goring & Co. broke into derisive guffaws when they heard themselves solemnly accused at Nuremberg--by their former partners in crime, the Soviets, among others--of planning and waging aggressive war. Moreover, the Soviet-led attempt to convict the Germans of Katyn at Nuremberg led to a very public, embarrassing, and significant dropping of that charge."
While Madden's committee reported that
"General Bissell himself admitted to the committee that had the Van Wet report been publicized in 1945, when agreements for creating a United Nations organization reached at Yalta were being carried out in San Francisco, Soviet Russia might never have taken a seat in this international He admitted the report was explosive and came at a time when the United States was still trying to get a commitment from the Soviets to enter the Japanese war. General Bissell contradicted his own theory when he told the committee that the Van Vliet report couldn’t have been sent to the Secretary of the Army “because it had nothing to do with the prosecution of the war at that time.” This committee was dismayed to learn that the United States Assistant Chief of Staff, Army Intelligence (G-21, was considering political significance of the Van Wet document, which should have been treated objectively from a strictly Military Intelligence stand- point."
Can you appreciate what is being said here? That the provability of the Soviet Union's guilt and responsibility for the war crime of genocide was so unassailable, that deliberate injustices were necessitated in order to sit the powerful, yet still rogue, nation into its permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council.

Lastly, the crime of Katyn has gone unpunished for 70 years.

The nation-state that reveals the genocide gets charged with the genocide. That was the true war crime: the breaking of an unbreakable etiquette of evil. I would begin to guess that the holocaust of European Jewry is as ephemeral and translucent an entity as were the planes, the victims, and the heroes of September 11th. When they say "big lie" they mean really, really big.

What Katyn Means:

With the exposure of a hidden historic event---like the 1941 genocide of 20,000 educated Polish officers and bourgeoisie at the hands of their Bolshevik Soviet jailers in Katyn, Russia---we are forced to confront an exact parallel within our contemporary field of awareness, the equally horrific false-flag terrorist attacks of September 11th. That so much could be known about facts that we remain willing to deny, is a flaw in the logic we must remedy, better late than never.

It doesn't matter if the plane crash on April 10 that killed the Polish president, Lech Kaczinski was an act of God or man; Christ or Allah; the Angels, Martians, or the Mormons. It serves a higher purpose then we can know, as it collectively awakens us to our ethical duty, which as human beings we can no longer choose to ignore. For we have been living in a lie of such vast proportion that we very nearly risk immediate annihilation as a consequence.

With a collective refusal to deal properly with what took place at Katyn in 1941, we opened the door to a progressive development in the human condition that led us directly to 9/11. We dare not imagine what might come next if we continue on this path of collective amnesia.

An enormous amount of fact and knowledge exists for both these traumatic episodes. The whole world perceives the truth about these acts of evil, if only to some degree, yet we stay blinded to their ultimate reality, ignore their meaning, run from their implications, and refuse to accept any responsibility to take action.

We have been dumbed down so far by a manipulatively controlling culture that the doors of our perception could close for good soon, leaving us as permanent slaves existing on a narcoleptic autopilot, in a totally purposeless world. Not me. I say no. From here on, I rebel.

My moral purpose couldn't be clearer. I acknowledge these facts as self-evident:

The holocaust at Hatyn was committed by one set of masters who then passed it off onto opposition Nazi scapegoats, while the British and American rulers pretended they weren't looking. This is evidence of collusion in the control room beyond any conspiracy theorist's paranoid fantasy. It is fact!

That Nazi Germany uncovered and exposed this Soviet secret in 1943, presenting documented proof of the crime to the world, only to see their effort dissolve within the propaganda matrix of a globally controlled corporate media, who can render results invisible to a group consciousness for 70 years, is evidence of an abusive collusion of power at the highest levels. That must be destroyed now.

We willingly accede to a default position of powerlessness and non-involvement, which we think excuses us from direct responsibility for the horror of the world. We no longer see it, let alone resist it.

The ability of mankind to perceive reality without management from higher powers in London, Langley or Rome, has essentially been lost. We have become victims to the narrow doorways of our source media. We are unable to share an individual truth or world view with another without the static of oversight penalizing our errant views. Just try to constructively criticize the Joooos, for instance. This extends even to the criminalization of an idea---lest we dare revise, revisit, or require a reinterpretation of the history of the Jewish holocaust.

But to clearly see the factual history of the Katyn massacre, which was a practical genocide that targeted the ideological leadership of a nationalist movement, then makes a mockery out of all the self-centered Jewish drama-queens who act out their paranoid "final solution" scenarios in the limelight of center stage. In the Katyn case, the Jewish intelligentsia running the secret police of the Bolshevik revolution couldn't even effectively dispose of 5000 bodies---can you imagine having to manage five million?

So this is one of the gifts that exposing a real holocaust returns. It provides some legitimate light of day to contrast all the faux workmanship on the manufactured jobs with.

Marshal Lavrentyij Beria, the Jewish engineer of the Katyn holocaust

Compare Katyn with "the infamous Kielce pogrom of July 4, 1946, during which forty-two Jews were killed and forty more were injured," in an extreme outburst of violence coming over two years after the blood spill of the second World War. It was supposedly started by the disappearance of a Christian boy. Naturally, a "traditional anti-Jewish motif" rumor started amongst the townsfolk, saying he had been kidnapped and taken downstairs into the basement of the local Jewish committee headquarters, where Jews were drinking his blood. I'll let you read the extreme details of violence yourself, but trust me: they're over the top. One odd tidbit though:
" The mob also killed a Jewish nurse of "Aryan" appearance (Estera Proszowska), whom the attackers apparently mistaken for a Polish woman trying to aid the dying Jews.[10]"
Huh? They aren't even trying any more! But you might ask, could there be a hidden motive or any self-serving agenda to this Jewish version of events? Yes, I'd answer back! According to Wikipedia
"The brutality of the Kielce pogrom put an end to the hopes of many Jews that they would be able to resettle in Poland after the end of the Nazi Germany occupation and precipitated a mass exodus of Polish Jewry.[14] In the words of Bożena Szaynok, a historian at Wrocław University:
"Until 4 July 1946, Polish Jews cited the past as their main reason for emigration. After the Kielce pogrom, the situation changed drastically. Both Jewish and Polish reports spoke of an atmosphere of panic among Jewish society in the summer of 1946. Jews no longer believed that they could be safe in Poland. Despite the large militia and army presence in the town of Kielce, Jews had been murdered there in cold blood, in public, and for a period of more than five hours. The news that the militia and the army had taken part in the pogrom spread as well. From July 1945 until June 1946, about fifty thousand Jews passed the Polish border illegally. In July 1946, almost twenty thousand decided to leave Poland. In August 1946 the number increased to thirty thousand. In September 1946, twelve thousand Jews left Poland."[9]
However this "pogrom" on the Jews of Kielce was stage-managed for the publicity, (nine of the attackers were supposedly executed the following day.) Or, perhaps like so much of 9/11, the actual events were never real---only an imaginary effect was transmitted. In any case, it was a manipulated, or constructed thing; a false-flag attack designed to serve the all-too-clear Zionist political agenda, of a nation built on a lie. But the desired outcome was achieved---or in other words, cui bono?

In contrast, the Katyn story of haughty regiments of Polish officers, belligerently singing their patriotic songs in proud defiance of a Communist jailer's efforts at political redoctrination; starved and beaten, but remaining strong and united; then manfully meeting a fate, a bullet to the back of the head---this is the stuff of magnificent legend, and epic beauty. My spirit soars responding to the honor, the legitimacy, and the truth of this story. The light has been turned on here now, and we can see by it.

Something Strange About the Death of Polish President Lech Kaczynski

The news reports out today about the airplane crash that killed Polish President Lech Kaczynski along with 96 other high-ranking officials, contain some exceedingly strange details and coincidences. It would appear that lurking beneath the public information there is a lot more being left unsaid.

At least one commentator put into words the unspoken subtext. The German Press Agency reported that
"[i]t fell to former Czech president, Vaclav Havel, to warn of the danger ahead if Poles seize on the idea that Kaczyński was murdered. Havel forecast that speculation rather than facts about the cause of the accident might influence developments in Poland.'That speculation will influence the elections,' he said, predicting some Poles would see an analogy to the 1943 plane-crash death of Wladyslaw Sikorski, Poland's premier-in-exile. Some believe that Sikorski's plane was deliberately brought down."1
Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski missed "irony" as an adjective when he told the BBC,
"We could not have conceived a more horrible, poignant, tragic occurrence than our president going to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the murder of 20,000 Polish officers at Katyn, himself dying with his wife, with the army commander, with parliamentarians, with the head of the national bank. It's just beyond belief." 2
As part of the news coverage coming out of the Israeli on the Sabbath day, a Ha'aretz article, last updated at 3:39 pm---or only seven-and-a-half hours after the 10:56 am crash---quoted Polish officials who were already reporting "that the crash appeared accidental and that so far there was no suspicion of a terror attack." A sincere accident investigation would logically have barely begun during this time frame, rendering the remark both meaningless and suspect.

Har'retz then offers us an overabundance of causes for a convincing accident. Saying that the "pilot was reportedly making his fourth attempt to land when the plane crashed," amid "thick fog," they warn that "despite a recent upgrade, the Smolensk airport was not fitted with special anti-fog radar common in the West." Quoting a Smolensk government spokesman, Andrei Yevseyenkov, they added, "[p]ilot error was a possible reason for the crash...The pilot was advised to land in Minsk, but decided to land in Smolensk,"

It appears as overkill for Har'retz to then describe the airplane, a recently refurbished Tupolev Tu-154, as "aged," with the equipment having "a questionable safety record." Either human error in responding to the dangerous weather conditions was at fault---or a mechanical failure triggered the crash, but it's unlikely it resulted from a combination of both.

By overstating their case with a needless laundry list, the Israeli media botch the legitimacy of the report---news of the tragedy being already a conspiracy theorist's wet dream.
"The presidential plane was carrying a delegation to Katyn, to commemorate the mass murder of a previous Polish elite: the 20,000 reservist officers murdered by Stalin’s NKVD in 1940." 3
The Economist also reported that
"Radek Sikorski, the foreign minister, who broke the news to the prime minister, Donald Tusk, this morning said that the head of government wept on hearing it. Both men had been at Katyn earlier in the week, at a ceremony attended by the Russian prime minister, Vladimir Putin. The hawkish Mr Kaczynski did not attend that ceremony, instead insisting on his own visit three days later."
A unilaterally bifurcated Katyn memorialization is suspicious on its surface. Wasn't Russian-Polish reconciliation part of the purpose of holding a ceremony at the site? Megan K. Stack writing in the Los Angeles Times offers us a too plausible explanation
"This week, Tusk, the Polish prime minister, had traveled to Katyn to mark the massacre. In what was regarded as a turning point in the often frosty relations between Moscow and Warsaw, Putin also attended the ceremony.

"Kaczynski, a frequent and outspoken critic of the Kremlin, was not invited to that ceremony.

"Unlike Tusk's visit, which was given prominent coverage in Russian media, Kaczynski's plans to attend Saturday's commemoration were all but unmentioned. A few weeks ago, the Russian Foreign Ministry publicly griped that Kaczynski had not sent official word of his planned visit. The ministry had heard of his intentions from press reports, officials said." 4
Who else attended the event earlier in the week, along with Tusk, Sikorski and Putin? Why was the event that Kaczynski was attending so top-heavy with Polish officialdom? Who was doing the insisting, and who did the inviting?

The victims aboard Kaczynski's plane ranged across the political spectrum, and included the leading left-wing candidate, Jerzy Szmajdzinski. The London Financial Times, in an oddly titled article, 'Do Not Use,' reported that
"The dead also included many of the senior members of the right-wing opposition Law and Justice party that Mr Kaczynski helped found in 2001, except for the president's twin brother, Jaroslaw, who was in Warsaw." 5, cached
Other juicy quotes from the Financial Times article
“'We stand humbly in the face of fate, which decided in an unfathomable way to link this place with another national tragedy,' said Bronislaw Komorowski, the speaker of parliament, who took over Mr Kaczynski''s duties, as the Polish constitution dictates."

"Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president, spoke with Mr Komorowski, the Polish speaker of parliament who took over Mr Kaczynski’s duties, by telephone to express the deep sympathy of the entire Russian people for what he called a “terrible unprecedented tragedy”. “Russia shares the deep sorrow and mourning of Poland,” the Russian president told Mr Komarowski.

"He said he and the rest of Russia had been deeply shocked by the news and said he was calling for a special government commission to investigate the catastrophe in cooperation with the Polish authorities to be headed by Vladimir Putin, the Russian prime minister." But it was an accident, wasn't it?
By far, Global Breaking News has posted the best list of victim's names on the web---37 military officials and politicians. Some of the tricky roles in Polish government were filled by figures such as Janusz Kurtyka, who headed the Institute of National Remembrance, which investigates Nazi and Soviet crimes against Poles; and Aleksander Szczyglo, the head of the National Security Bureau, which is likely a secret police agency; and Franciszek Gagor, the chief of the general staff of the Polish Army. 6

The conservative Jewish and Israeli press swooned over the loss of Kaczynski, with the American Jewish Committee claiming solidarity with him across three continents.
"We knew President Kaczynski very well, as we did several members of his entourage who also lost their lives in the accident. We last met the President in Warsaw in February, where we thanked him for his powerful speech at the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz a few weeks earlier, agreed on the profound danger posed by the Iranian nuclear program, and discussed the current state of Polish-American bilateral ties.

"That meeting followed many earlier AJC meetings with him in the Polish capital, as well as in Israel, when he attended the country's 60th anniversary celebration, and the United States, when he made official visits here." 7
Rabbi Israel Meir Lau, chairman of Yad Vashem's board of directors, certainly didn't find Pope Benedict's 2009 speech at the Israeli memorial "powerful." At the time, Lau said of Benedict's speech that
"There is a clear difference between 'killed' and 'murdered.' There is a difference between saying millions in the Holocaust and saying six million. The word six was not said. There was certainly no apology here."
(However, the Pope did say "six million" during his speech at his arrival at the Jerusalem airport.)

Getting back to the "good Pole" Kaczynski, the Jerusalem Post's article, Netanyahu: Kaczynski was a Polish patriot and a great friend of Israel, and Ynetnews.com's online posting, Lieberman: Polish president was true friend of Israel, speak for themselves. Apparently, to affect a Jewish-Polish reconciliation, all Kaczynski had to do was to bend over and take his marching orders from two of the most hawkish and reactionary Zionist leaders the Middle East has ever known.

Kowtowing to American interests also helps---as if those could ever again be separated out from the Jewish lot. The Polish defense minister, Bogdan Klich, announced in January this year that American surface-to-air missiles would be deployed near Russian soil, probably by early April. He also said American soldiers would also be based in Poland once the missiles were sent there.8

And let's not forget that Kaczynski would have had to agree to the CIA's establishing black sites in Poland---secret prisons outside of U.S. territory and legal jurisdiction where reportedly detainees often were tortured.

At this point I would like to stop my media analysis in order to offer up a personal reminiscence that could offer a clue as to what this pair of symmetrical tragedies might represent, both of which made targets out of the same select demographics---and perhaps for the similar reasons.

For the past ten months, I've provided housing for a young man in his mid-twenties who is a Polish Jew---the only child from a rather upmarket, albeit dysfunctional family, who maintain homes in both Connecticut and Warsaw. When we met however, he was temporarily down on his luck, homeless, and living in his car. To give him a leg up I offered him a no-strings-attached, grace-and-favor tenancy in a cottage behind my house. In return, we would see what he might make of himself with some time and a little help. Alas, after a good start, which lasted several months, he reverted back to some old habits and I recently asked him to leave.

But while he was newly in residence, he told me a story that I found credible, given his background and an apparent lack of an agenda to feed or deceive me. He said it was a little known fact that a large percentage of Poland's post-war political and social ruling elite were comprised of people hiding secret Jewish backgrounds. On the one hand, this surprised me because I was taught that Polish Jewry was nearly wiped out in the holocaust; but on the other hand it made perfect sense as an assimilationist ruse and survival strategy.

Mark Twain, writing in the late 19th century about small-town life in America, said he thought the number of Jews reported living in the vicinity of his Midwestern locale was a dramatic under count---with the figures being deliberately low-balled. It is within the ability of Jews to choose whether or not to manifest their Jewish identity publicly---or instead, to blend in amongst the dominant, and oftentimes hostile, culture. It is a skill at acting and 'seeming' honed over many millennia. I imagine it is synonymous with the experience gays choose when operating within a dominant straight culture.

I was curious about the Polish names, but my informant said he'd have to go to the library to refresh the details in his memory, but we never did get around to the topic again. However, he mentioned Lech Walesa as being a preeminent example of the species.

So I began a search using terms such as "Lech Walesa + Jew." It didn't start out to be a promising hunt, but in several spots, such as Wikipedia, which quoted Time Magazine, Walesa was said to be a devout Roman Catholic, and "a strong supporter of the traditional family," which isn't antisemitic code. But with a family of eight children, it seemed he could demonstrably be a Catholic.

Then a well-named web site, www.jewishtribalreview.org, returned a "master document," with its name all in caps: LIST OF NAME CHANGES FOR POLAND'S MOST POWERFUL/ INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN OUR MODERN ERA. It consisted of a tally of approximately 263 paired Jewish and Gentile names---with Mr. Lech Walesa showing up at number 173, with a Jewish name of Lejba Kohne. A disclaimer seemed to add a degree of authenticity, as did the one name familiar to my eyes, that of Jerzy Kosinski's. Where is Roman Polanski when you need him?
"The following is a post by a Polish commentator at a discussion group. We at JTR cannot verify the accuracy of this list, nor the Polish source book for this. But, from our own research, the names we recognize on this list from our own research (Bronislaw Geremek, Jerzy Kosinski, Stanislaw Krajewski, Adam Michnik, Jerzy Urban, Dawid Warshawski) are indeed Jewish. But Lech Walesa?!)"
Reading over the list of names, I had the same sensation I had when I first read a good copy of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the supposed and infamous slander, which, if it is an antisemitic forgery of a text purporting to describe a plan to achieve global domination by the Jewish people, then I have to say---it's certainly a damn good one! It encapsulated a world vision that I was totally unfamiliar with. Glimmering it was similar to the deflowering effect I felt reading Machiavelli as an adult, when I could take it to heart. It changed me.

I found an occasional reference to this list elsewhere on the web. Ian Buruma, writing in the New York Times Sunday Magazine in 1997 mentioned it while labeling them as "fictitious Jewish names," (this would assume that the Goyem names are recognizable to Polish readers.) Buruma (and does that sound Jewish?) also mentions the same kind of covert under-counting of Jews that I just spoke of
"Nobody knows the exact number of surviving Polish Jews. Five thousand is an often quoted number--the generally old people who meet in a handful of badly maintained prayer halls to worship, quarrel and speak Yiddish. Unofficially, the number is thought to be around 30,000. Some anti-Semites suspect there are many more, of course, hiding their identities, secretly tugging the strings of Polish society. I was shown a leaflet in Warsaw put out by an extreme right-wing party in which every more or less moderate politician, including Lech Walesa, was accused of being a Jew. Fictitious Jewish names were helpfully provided to identify the imposters, as in 'Lech Walesa -- Lejba Kohne.'" 10
But I think Buruma slips up with his sentence, "Some anti-Semites suspect there are many more [Jews], of course, hiding their identities, secretly tugging the strings of Polish society." Why does he say, "of course?" It is as though he aims to play both sides in a chess game of logic, anticipating the reaction and objection an adversary might raise. Personally, it feels like an attempt to get into someone's head where he doesn't belong. It may be a good way to co-opt and disarm a point of view, but it also identifies someone as manipulative.

In my opinion, that is what Jews have long been accustomed to---playing both sides of the street, acting out the antagonist and protagonist roles in almost every drama---or, let me rephrase that as, the overt and the covert sides. Goyem like myself never really catch up to get our breaths. I'm constantly being forced into some reaction by Jewish maneuvers. For the most part, this becomes our collective "reality," all that we know.

Palestinian Hamas and Fatah factions fight each other because it's in Israel's interest to divide them into opposing Orwellian camps, using the dirty tactics of deceit and subterfuge. At one time, Hamas was fostered by the Israelis, while Fatah was brutally repressed; and when that gets old, the tables will be nonsensically turned by those operating the levers for the next act.

For instance, the view from inside Israeli posits that it was Arab militarism and aggression that started the six-day war in 1967, and that Israel responded, and through skill and effort defended itself---it just happens that they wound up the victorious possessors of the occupied territories, including the capture of the holy Temple Mount. This was no accident of fate.

Since Israel insists it will never give back the conquered East Jerusalem, the only logical analysis possible is whatever led to the actual warfare between the parties, by design intent the Jews were the instigators, since it delivered their strategic goal, and giving them what they really wanted. Simple, yes? Cui bono?

So what was my point about Jews in high places in Poland again? Well, one theory I might suggest is that those Polish elites who died in a modern shadow echo of the earlier 1941 genocidal atrocity, were not themselves Jewish, (how many of them were the first time?) or necessarily aligned with Jewish power structures.

In fact, since on the surface this would appear to be a tragedy for the Jews and Israel---given the sudden death of their best and strongest supporter from within the European Union---that would make for perfect cover to effect even more dastardly schemes. Maybe the surviving Polish leadership have the Jewish alignments, and helped craft an airplane disaster as part of a some coup d'état against a competing Roman Catholic power structure running at cross purposes to Jewish influence. I don't know what it is but I know what it is not.

My sense is that Kasczinski was just a compliant toady who acquiesced to Israeli demands in exchange for something in return, and he had that look of 'strange bedfellow' as a result. An in-depth article by Brian Porter from the September 2006 issue of Jewish Currents, The Return of the Radical Right in Poland: The Betrayal of Solidarity and the Politics of Discontent, captures the ethical inconsistency within the relationship.
"The Kaczynskis themselves condemn any allusions to violence and repudiate the crude slogans cited above— while fanning the flames of homophobia and blaming Poland’s problems on mysterious unnamed “webs of influence,” or “power-wielding networks” that supposedly run things behind the scenes."

"The Kaczynskis themselves have established close ties to the “Radio Maryja” media network, which propagates a combination of anti-Jewish conspiracy theories and ultra-conservative Catholic religiosity. Although neither of the brothers have any personal history of anti-Jewish remarks (even in private, by all accounts), they have found plenty of ways to appeal to a racist electorate while keeping their own hands clean. "
"By appointing Roman Giertych, the leader of The League of Polish Families, to the position of vice-premier and minister of education, the Kaczynskis have bestowed legitimacy on a volatile extremist who traces his ideological roots to 'National Democracy,' a radical right movement.”9
Evidence there are no Jewish illusions in return, is a statement by then-Israeli Prime Minister Itzhak Shamir in 1989, which created a stir, when he was quoted as saying “Poles suckle anti-Semitism with their mothers’ milk.” 11

The Kaczynski/Jewish partnership reminds me of the support given Israel by Christian Zionists such as Pastor John Hagee, founder of Christians United for Israel, and a man guilty of Christian heresy for his efforts to let Jews off the hook for their refusal to go on and get saved. There is something unholy, in my opinion, about these raw power exchanges between Israel and her apocalyptic co-conspirators. Then again, Hagee says some pretty awful things about Roman Catholics too, so maybe he's just an all-around hater
"Most readers will be shocked by the clear record of history linking Adolf Hitler and the Roman Catholic Church in a conspiracy to exterminate the Jews" - from Jerusalem Countdown (revised edition, 2007), p. 114. [2]

"A Godless theology of hate that no one dared try to stop for a thousand years produced a harvest of hate." Mr. Kettle

The beautiful clear voices of truth ring out like clarion bells. It is all so clear now---if they had been allowed to get away with 9/11, and Iraq and Afghanistan, then where would it have stopped?
"....Teheran was the true nadir of international diplomacy, morally far more ignoble and strategically far more catastrophic than either Munich five years before or Yalta a year later. And the key to Teheran was Katyn; once Stalin had got away with that, he realized he could get away with anything."
