ISIS preserving Jewish cultural heritage in Iraq

“Have Pillaged Iraqi Artifacts Ended Up in Israel?” By Richard Edmondson

“Iraqi Cuneiform Tablets Now on Display at Museum in Jerusalem”

“With ISIS carrying out rampages through archaeologically sensitive areas of Iraq, a pertinent question to ask now is what group’s cultural heritage in the Middle East is being preserved, and whose is being destroyed.

Over the past couple of weeks shocking reports have surfaced concerning mass destruction of Iraq’s cultural heritage at two locations–the museum in Mosul and the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud, located in northern Iraq. Both incidents were perpetrated by the so-called Islamic State. The one at the Mosul museum was recorded on video.

But destruction with sledge hammers, bonfires, and heavy equipment isn’t the only threat to priceless objects thousands of years old. Artifacts are also being illegally excavated and pilfered on a massive scale.

An enormous black market in stolen antiquities in fact has arisen in the last four years since the outbreak of the conflict in Syria, and the general rule of thumb seems to be if it’s small enough to be carted off, take it and sell it on the black market; if it’s too large to move, then smash it to pieces. This is what we’ve seen repeatedly in Syria and Iraq since ISIS took over large swaths of both countries.

“..The rise of ISIS has made it extremely perilous for archaeologists to continue to work in Iraq and Syria, and most expeditions have in fact come to a halt. But in Israel these days things are a bit different….”

“…So what to make of it all? That’s a good question. All I can really say is that it seems enormous efforts are being expended to recover and safeguard Jewish cultural heritage–this, ironically, as everyone else’s cultural heritage in the Middle East is being looted and destroyed….”

TAP – Destruction of history has been going on for thousands of years, and has always been an ongoing and necessary strategy of the powerful.  The control structures of the world operate by falsifying history, and hiding scientific information.  If people start to realise that high technology is nothing new, and that it has been hidden away from humanity for thousands of years, they will start to realise how the world is controlled, and be able to fight back.  The real Jesus, named Manu, was a sponsor of Hero, the Egyptian Leonardo da Vinci of his day, and was interested in scientific development.   Jesus’ power struggle to become Emperor of Rome failed in AD 70.  His gnosticism was crushed and his knowledge hidden away.  One reason for the Iraq War was to get hold of all the evidence in cuneiform that would tell people about mankind’s real history.  The power cabal wants us kept in ignorance, and destruction of valuable source material is clearly the aim.  It’s a miracle that Ralph Ellis was able to find as much as he was in his research of the last 25 years.  He wouldn’t be able to uncover who the real Jesus was now, with Syria and Iraq sinking into Rothschild/Israel-sponsored mayhem.

    Professor Michael Chossudovsky at Global Research has done excellent work on this global crime known as “The War on Terror” which has destroyed several countries and the lives of millions of people worldwide.

    And this fraudulent game has to stop!

    The Ultimate War Crime: America’s “Global War on Terrorism” By professor Michel Chossudovsky

    “…The Pentagon’s global military design is one of world conquest.

    This military deployment of US-NATO forces is occurring in several regions of the world simultaneously, resulting in millions of civilian deaths and countless atrocities. More recently, U.S. and NATO ground forces have been deployed in Eastern Europe including Ukraine on Russia’s immediate doorstep.

    Major military and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and the Far East. The U.S. military agenda combines both major theatre operations as well as covert actions geared towards destabilizing sovereign states.

    In turn, Israel in liaison with the US, is threatening Iran with nuclear weapons. And the U.S. and its allies are threatening China and North Korea under President Obama’s “Pivot to Asia”.

    Under a global military agenda, the actions undertaken by the Western military alliance (U.S.-NATO-Israel) in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Palestine, Ukraine, Syria and Iraq are coordinated at the highest levels of the military hierarchy.

    In turn, military undertakings are closely coordinated with a process of economic warfare which consists not only in imposing sanctions on sovereign countries but also in deliberate acts of destabilization of financial and currencies markets, with a view to undermining the enemies’ national economies….”

  3. “Israel seeks to destroy neighbours’ histories and identities”

    “This would not be the first time that the Israelis have endeavoured to destroy historical and cultural artifacts in order to bolster their territorial claims and to eradicate inconvenient elements of the past.

    In 2003, in an article headed “Pillaging 7000 Years Of Iraq History No Accident” sub-heading “The Sacking Of Iraq’s Museums – US Wages War Against Culture And History”, Patrick Martin wrote in Rense.com that “US claims to have been taken by surprise by the ransacking of cultural facilities in Baghdad, Mosul and other cities are not credible. Such a tragedy was not only predictable, it was specifically warned against. . . . Attacking the cultural resources that connect the Iraqi people to 7,000 years of history is part of the process of systematically destroying their national identity.” (Emphasis added – link to full article below).

    A little-known event in 1948 during the “Naqba”, was the Israeli theft of books and manuscripts.

    Journalist Arwa Aburawa, writing in “Sabbah Report” two years ago, refers to “the systematic looting of more than 60,000 Palestinian books by Israeli forces and the attempted destruction of Palestinian culture… Between May 1948 and February 1949, librarians from the Jewish National Library and Hebrew University Library entered the desolate Palestinian homes of west Jerusalem and seized 30,000 books, manuscripts and newspapers alone. These cultural assets, which had belonged to elite and educated Palestinian families, were then “loaned” to the National Library where they have remained until now.” See link below….’

    Whose plot is this? Are they collecting DNA to give people various diseases in addition to implicate them in crimes they didn’t commit?

    Trash from the bin in our backyard is being regularly picked up by a – suspicious company which has been my suspicion for sometime. There appears to be an attempt to collect my DNA
    and that of my family. We are not planning to kill anyone or commit suicide.

  5. In Gaza the farmers irrigate the land with their blood

    Tilling the land in Gaza is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. The Zionist Occupation Forces fire on the peasants and their families while they sow or harvest their own land near the infamous Zionist fence which surrounds Gaza. They also burn their fields and routinely ravage their crops with bulldozers, leaving hundreds of families ruined and preventing the Gaza Strip from developing it’s already devastated economy or achieving a minimum of food sovereignty.
