Julie Webb-Pullman reports

Zionist spider Jesus T. Vasquez crawls out from under his rock again

Desperate Zionists are again recycling their fake press release in a pathetic attempt to discredit pro-Palestinian activists and organisations in New Zealand and Australia.[1]

Needless to say, I assert that none of the events I am alleged to have organised or attended took place, and I deny all of the attributions made to me contained in this fiction calling itself a press release. I most assuredly had no part in writing or sending it out.

In a clear sign they must be running out money as well as ideas, they are peddling the same barely-altered nonsense sent out to news agencies and others in 2011 [2] and 2012 [3], in 2011 purporting to be from Alison Weir, Kathleen M. Christison, Prof. John Mearsheimer, Steve Fake, and the illustrious Jesus T. Vasquez, Director of Communications of Bangor, Maine, soon to self-promote to Jesus T. Vasquez Director, Strategic Communications, Christchurch, New Zealand.

The 2011 and 2012 versions differ little, except for the names – they were even too lazy and/or sloppy to remove the page number from the Hasbara manaual that appears at the bottom of each release!

This year there seems to have been some small attempt to update their information – “Ahmadinejad” has been replaced by “Iranian ayatollahs” in the rant – but there has been no attempt whatsoever to disseminate anything that could remotely be considered accurate, or factual.

If this is quality of contemporary Zionist propaganda, we can all breathe a sigh of relief!

New Zealanders to Boycott Arab and Iranian Goods

News Release
No. NR – 19,004
For Immediate distribution

WELLI NGTON, 06 July — A new boycott campaign against the Arab world and Iran that will require the cooperation of every lover of Middle East freedom has been launched by a group of outspoken New Zealanders, it was announced today by its founder Julie Webb-Pullman, a prominent international activist and journalist.

“It is high time we exposed the crimes against humanity committed by the modern pharoahs of the Muslim Middle East. Hosni Mubarak and Col. Mouammar Gaddafi, who enslaved the long-suffering Egyptian and Libyan peoples with 30-year dictatorships that are unprecedented in modern history, have now been ousted but democratic government is still not in sight.

Meanwhile Algeria, Bahrain, Yemen, Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Gaza, the West Bank, Lebanon and Jordan are being ruled by fascist thugs and usurpers who are massacring their own people ,” Webb-Pullman stated.

Speaking to hundreds of Syrian students and refugees in the nation’s capital, Webb-Pullman excoriated the Arab and Iranian regimes for plundering their countries of their wealth and depriving their people of their basic human rights. She particularly upbraided Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Iran for their entrenched system of apartheid against their Christian Copt, Maronite, Melkite, Palestinian, Berber, Shia and Kurd populations.

The popular activist who has fought for the downtrodden Palestinian Arabs, bewailed the thousands of civilians recently massacred by the Arab and Iranian security forces in the streets of Algiers, Cairo, Alexandria, Teheran, Manama, Damascus, Deraa, Latakia, Homs, Idlip, Amman, Jeddah, Gaza City, Aden, Taiz and Sanaa.

“It is simply incomprehensible that these bloodthirsty governments are committing genocide against their own people,” she declared. “What’s more, they are committing unspeakable apartheid crimes against the Palestinian refugees in their midst, especially in Lebanon and Syria at the behest of the illegitimate para-state organization Hizbullah and the savage Alawite regime in Damascus,” she averred.

As a consequence, her new organization — New Zealanders for Boycotting Arab and Iranian Goods (NEZBAIG) — will be demanding that New Zealand importers immediately terminate their contracts for the purchase of petroleum, petrochemicals, plastics, cotton yarn and garments, rugs, fertilisers, majdhool dates, taboule, figs, and sheet metal from these countries. In addition, all New Zealand firms and universities with investments and joint ventures in these tyrannies will be pressured to divest their assets from them. Of equal importance is our campaign for the Wellington government to implement sanctions by halting its lamb and dairy shipments to the Nazi-like governments of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

“We are confident that the international community – and particularly the New Zealand public – is prepared to support our initiative until the vicious dictatorships of the Arab Middle East and Iran are overthrown and their civilian populations are finally endowed with classical democracy,” Webb-Pullman affirmed.

“The welfare of the beleaguered Arab and Iranian people must be our number one priority,” she stated.

The new boycott campaign is supported by the Federation of New Zealand Muslims, the Association of Arab Students and Professors in New Zealand, the Palestine Human Rights Campaign, Global Peace and Justice Auckland, the League for Iranian Democracy, as well as by the internationally-acclaimed online news agency Scoop.

NEZBAIG co-founder Leslie Bravery, chair of Palestine Human Rights Campaign who has long crusaded for the seething Arabs of the Middle East, pointed out that the illegitimate Muslim governments there are being targeted by his followers with arrest warrants should they step foot on New Zealand soil or seek asylum here. Under the international law of universal jurisdiction, war criminals and their genocidal ilk are liable to arrest upon the issuance of a certification by the New Zealand intelligence community.
He emphasized that his group’s actions were in complete fulfilment of the treasured New Zealand tradition of seeking justice for suffering humanity. Moreover, it has the complete approval of his Middle East advisor, Samah Sabawi, director of the Al-Shabaka Centre for Australasia and a veteran critic of Arab war crimes.

“We must lose no time in bringing Assad and the Iranian ayatollahs to the gallows just as Osama Bin Laden and Col. Gaddafi were so readily dispatched,” Bravery declared to tumultuous applause. “And we mustn’t forget our obligation to overthrow the unelected thugs ruling in the Palestinian Authority and the Hamas fanatics in Gaza who are torturing their brother Arabs in dismal dungeons,” Bravery added.

Casting aside his long antipathy towards Israel, Bravery praised the Jewish state for striking Syrian military sites. He pleaded with it to invade Syria and Iran under the UN’s Responsibility to Protect Doctrine and wipe out their respective illegitimatel Shi’ite feudal ruling classes.

“Only such a humanitarian gesture can have the desired effect of strengthening the region-wide intifadas in these countries leading to the toppling of their authoritarian regimes and the implementation of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights and all the Geneva Conventions,” he posited.

Bravery solemnly drew attention to the holocaust nakba that has befallen the Syrian Palestinians who are drowning in blood. Some 3,000 of them have been slaughtered and gassed by their Syrian Arab brethren, 65,000 have been turned into refugees fleeing to Lebanon and Jordan and UNWRA has announced that over 80 percent of the half-million population holed up in 14 concentration camps around Yarmouk have been displaced from their homes.

As a result, both Bravery and Webb-Pullman are making their way to the Turkish frontier where they will enter Syria to document for the whole world the ghastly atrocities being inflicted on the Syrian Palestinians. “These massive war crimes are a violation of international law and New Zealand can help put a stop to this through an effective boycott policy,” the pair stated.

“As for our myriad of friends among the general public, we sincerely hope they will be moved to embrace the boycott of Arab and Iranian goods with the objective of liberating the oppressed Arab masses, ” Webb-Pullman and Bravery concluded.

Submitted by Steve on Thu, 07/14/2011 – 4:40am

I relate the following trivial incident only for its comedic value. Shortly after returning to the U.S. from the U.S. boat to Gaza in Athens, I received an email from one “Jesus Terrence Vasquez.” The email purports to be a press release (reproduced below), announcing the formation of a new campaign dedicated to opposing Middle Eastern tyrannies.

I am listed as a contact, and identified as an organizer for a non-existent organization, “Americans for a Secular Gaza.” One comical aspect is the attempt to demonstrate hypocrisy and selective concern for humanitarian situations. As if Chomsky has not been a long-time dedicated critic of Mubarak, before it was popular to be so, and while all loyal Washington-Tel Aviv loyalists backed the thug.

Americans for Boycotting Arab and Iranian Goods

News Release

Updated and Revised at 1100 Hrs EDST

WASHINGTON, July 12 — A new boycott campaign against the Arab world and Iran requiring the cooperation of every supporter of Middle East freedom has been successfully launched by a group of dedicated Americans, it was revealed today by its founders.

“It is high time we exposed the crimes against humanity committed by the modern pharoahs (sic) of the Muslim Middle East. Hosni Mubarak, who enslaved the long-suffering Egyptian people with a 30-year dictatorship that is unprecedented in modern history has now been ousted but a reactionary miltary junta has seized power in his stead. Meanwhile Algeria, Morocco, Libya, Bahrain, Yemen, Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman,Tunisia, Gaza, the West Bank and Jordan are being ruled by hereditary fascist thugs and usurpers who are massacring their own people ,” stated prominent Middle East activist Alison Weir.

Speaking to hundreds of Muslim Americans in front of the Syrian embassy, Weir excoriated the Arab and Iranian regimes for plundering their countries of their wealth and depriving their people of their basic human rights. She particularly upbraided Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Syria and Iran for their entrenched system of apartheid against their Christian Copt, Berber, Shia and Kurd populations.

The Executive Director of the lobbyist organization If Americans Knew also deplored the thousands of civilians massacred by the Arab and Iranian security forces in the streets of Algiers, Alexandria, Benghazi, Baydah, Tobruk, Tunis, Cairo, Alexandria, Deraa, Latakia, Banias, Homs, Teheran, Misrata, Manama, Amman, Jeddah, Gaza City, Aden and Sanaa.

“It is simply incomprehensible that these bloodthirsty regimes are committing genocide against their own people,” she declared.

As a consequence, her new organization — Americans for Boycotting Arab and Iranian Goods (ABAIG) — has demanded that all US importers immediately terminate their contracts for the purchases of petroleum, petrochemicals, plastics, cotton yarn, towels and garments, rugs, fertilisers, majhool dates, figs, strawberries, taboule, couscous and sheet metal from these countries. In addition, all US firms with investments and joint ventures in these tyrannies, including Chevron, Standard Oil, Boeing and Starbucks, are being pressured to divest their assets from them. Of greater importance is our campaign for the US to implement new sanctions by halting its tank and missile weapon shipments to the Nazi-like governments of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

“We are now happy to report that the American people is supporting our initiative until the vicious dictatorships of the Arab Middle East and Iran are overthrown and their civilian populations are finally endowed with classical democracy,” Weir affirmed. She particularly lauded President Obama for ordering the divestment of US corporations and personnel from Libya and the Administration’s military strikes against Col. Gaddafi’s kiling machine.

“The welfare of the beleaguered Arab and Iranian people must be our number one priority. It is vitally urgent that the international community quickly bring the genocidal dictators Gaddafi, Assad and Ahmadinejad to the gallows, just as Osama Bin Laden was so speedily dispatched, ” she stated.

She also warned against allowing the criminal Fatah and Hamas factions continuing to rule in Palestine. They operate deathly prisons and torture chambers. She repeated her insistence that their undemocratic leaders be ousted and be hauled before the International Criminal Court in the Hague for their despicable war crimes detailed in the Goldstone Report.

The new boycott campaign is supported by the Prof. Noam Chomsky of MIT, the Presbyterian Church, Code Pink, Americans for a Secular Palestine, the Green Party, the Association of Arab American Professors, Prof. John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago, filmmaker Michael Moore, Friends of Middle East Democracy, Veterans for Peace, author Alice Walker, the International Solidarity Movement, Alexander Cockburn, editor of Counterpunch magazine, the League for Iranian Democracy, American Women Against Saudi Gender Apartheid, the Libyan National Council, Prof. S. Makdisi of UCLA at Berkeley as well as by the American Muslim Congress.

ABAIG co-founder Kathleen Christison, former CIA analyst and long a crusader for the seething Arab masses of Gaza and the West Bank, pointed out that the illegitimate Muslim government leaders of the Middle East are being targeted by her bevy of activists with arrest warrants should they step foot on American soil or seek asylum here. Under the international laws of universal jurisdiction, war criminals and their genocidal ilk are liable to arrest upon the deposition of a citizen’s complaint before the Secretary of Homeland Security.

She emphasized that her group’s actions were in complete fulfilment of the treasured American tradition of seeking justice for suffering humanity. Moreover, it has the complete approval of her political mentor former President Jimmy Carter.

In that regard, she echoed the call on the international community to bring to justice Col. Moammar Gadhafi, the fascist ruler of Libya who is bombing his own people with war planes dropping cluster bombs, as well as the war criminals Ahmadinejad and Assad of Iran and Syria respectively. “These greasy rats should be torn limb from limb,” she declared to tumultuous applause before the Washington protestors.

She particularly singled out the apartheid oppression inflicted by the Lebanese government against the Palestinian refugees in its midst, an act advised and consented to by the illegitimate para-state organization Hizbullah.

Casting aside her life-long enmity towards Israel, Christison pleaded with it to invade Syria and Iran and wipe out their respective Alawite and Shi’ite ruling classes. “Only such a humanitarian intervention can have the desired effect of strengthening the region-wide intifadas in these countries leading to the toppling of their authoritarian regimes,” she posited.

“As for our myriad of friends amidst the general public, we do sincerely thank them for embracing the boycott of Arab and Iranian goods which will immeasurably assist in the liberation of the revolutionary Arab and Iranian masses, ” Weir and Christison concluded.

Dear Mr. Vasquez,

Very inventive. May I ask who you are?


Steve Fake

Dear Mr. Fake,

Like you, I am an American dedicated to end the wretched suffering of the Arab people by their genocidal rulers.

I am currently organizing a flotilla to smash the brutal Syrian siege of its Kurdish and Druse people who live under apartheid conditions. Our many efforts at liberating the indigenous Berber people under Arab exterminationist rule in Tunisia have been successful.

The UN yesterday stated that the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophe is occurring in Somalia where Arab war criminals are committing genocide. We are organizing civil society to reverse this situation as well.

I would like to count on your support. A donation of $9,450 (less than a vacation in Greece) would prove immensely helpful.

Kind Regards,

Jesus T. Vasquez

Putting aside the ludicrous implications of hypocrisy, Mr. “Vasquez” appears to have rather overestimated the budgetary allotments of flotilla passengers while in Greece. I have since requested that he supply me with the necessary routing information to place a donation (perhaps for the oddly precise sum he lists). I will post an update if he responds. One can only hope that “Vasquez” is on someone’s payroll, and not engaging in such inanities on his own time.
