Obama Issues 19 Classified Directives Changing Laws Passed by Congress

Everything secret degenerates, even the administration of justice; nothing is safe that does not show how it can bear discussion and publicity.” — Lord Acton

Since being inaugurated in 2009, President Barack Obama has issued 30 Presidential Policy Directives (PPD), 19 of which he has ordered to be kept secret from Congres and the American people.

Barack Obama campaigned for president promising to usher in an era of transparency in government. That promise stands next to “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” in the Barack Obama Presidential Hall of Shame.

No less than USA Today called attention to these secret orders in an article published on June 24. The article explained:

Of the 30 PPDs issued by Obama, 19 have not been released. And for 11 of those, the White House has not disclosed even the subject of the order.

"It's not only the public that doesn't have copies. It's also Congress that doesn't have copies," Aftergood said. "It's a domain of largely unchecked presidential authority. It doesn't mean it's bad, but it's lacking in independent oversight.”

But they have the same legal force as an executive order, forming a body of largely secret law, said Harold Relyea, a political scientist who advised Congress on national security directives before retiring from the Congressional Research Service.

"The difference is that while executive orders are public by law — they must be published in the Federal Register to be effective — PPDs are not," he said. "It is a kind of secret law. People have to obey it. But it's a directive that can allocate money, direct people or take a course of action.”

Lest anyone believe that the practice of ruling by this particular form of fiat began with the current occupant of the Oval Office, the USA Today provides a bit of historical context for the documents:

What Obama calls PPDs have gone by different names by different presidents back to the Truman Administration. President George W. Bush called them National Security Presidential Directives (NPSDs). President Clinton called them Presidential Decision Directives (PDDs). President Nixon called them National Security Decision Memoranda.

Whatever they're called, Obama has been less prolific than his predecessors. George W. Bush issued 66 such orders, plus 25 more Homeland Security Presidential Directives. President Reagan issued at least 325.

Some, going back as far as the Lyndon Johnson administration, remain classified.

Even the existence of the latest PPD issued by President Obama was unknown until another document referenced it, perhaps by accident. Again, from the USA Today:

A one-digit correction to President Obama's directive on hostage policy Wednesday had the effect of disclosing the existence of a previously unknown — and still-secret — Obama order on national security.

The hostage policy was originally released Wednesday as a presidential policy directive numbered PPD-29. When the White House corrected that number to PPD-30, it meant Obama had issued a secret directive as PPD-29 sometime in the past 17 months.

Obama signed PPD-28, an order on electronic eavesdropping in the wake of revelations by Edward Snowden, in January 2014.

So what is PPD-29? No one's talking. A spokesman for the National Security Council declined to comment of the existence of classified PPDs Wednesday.

One of the most egregious examples of President Obama’s duplicity is the way he and his administration have responded to the roster of revelations that have come from Snowden’s leaks of documents defining the surveillance activities of the National Security Agency (NSA).

As he continues burrowing deeper and deeper into the sands of secrecy, President Obama seems not to realize that soil shifts, and there will always be those committed to digging around until the truth is uncovered.

McClatchy writes:

Mark Jaycox, a policy analyst for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said he doesn’t expect the administration to change much even amid the intense criticism. This administration, he said, has always held fast against similar criticism. For example, it resisted for years bipartisan pressure to release more information about its top-secret targeted killing program.

“It’s a pattern of the Obama administration,” he said.

Tech Dirt recognizes the problem for the president:

Extreme secrecy may seem like the easier short-term strategy, but it's just digging an ever deeper hole that the administration is going to have to try to climb out of in the long-term. Hiding reality from a public that's going to find out eventually is just making the problem worse.

The secret PPD issued earlier this week by President Obama replaced a still-classified directive issued by George W. Bush in 2002.

A look at the list of PPDs issued by Obama reveals that there is much “secret law” that binds the American people without having ever been approved by their elected representatives.

The existence of these documents — along with the scores of executive orders and signing statements — represent a corpus of presidential fiats masquerading as laws. As demonstrated in the history of these directives, for generations, presidents have carried out a plan to consolidate all functions of government into the hands of one “unitary” executive, aggrandizing the office of the president and reducing Congress to mere plaintiffs in lawsuits challenging that all but unlimited authority.

It would do well for Americans concerned about this consolidation to study the words and warnings of our Founding Fathers and their political and philosophical influences regarding the primacy of the separation of powers in a good government.

James Madison, writing as "Publius," wrote in The Federalist, No. 47: “The accumulation of all powers legislative, executive and judiciary in the same hands, whether of one, a few or many, and whether hereditary, self appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny. “

Madison himself was restating in his inimitable style, one facet of federalism that was universally considered to be an essential pillar of liberty.

As the venerable French philosopher Baron de Montesquieu wrote in his influential treatise l'Esprit des Lois (The Spirit of the Laws), “When the legislative and executive powers are united in the same person, or in the same body of magistrates, there can be no liberty; because apprehensions may arise, lest the same monarch or senate should enact tyrannical laws, to execute them in a tyrannical manner.”

"Centinel," the nom de guerre of an anti-Federalist opposed to ratifying the new Constitution, rephrased for his readers what was already, in the 18th century, a well-settled aspect of good government, “This mixture of the legislative and executive moreover highly tends to corruption. The chief improvement in government, in modern times, has been the complete separation of the great distinctions of power; placing the legislative in different hands from those which hold the executive.”

Another anonymous anti-Federalist commented, “Liberty therefore can only subsist, where the powers of government are properly divided, and where the different jurisdictions are inviolably kept distinct and separate.”

If the opinions of these men are a worthy metric of the size of the impending threat of despotism, then President Obama is filling the shoes of a tyrant heel to toe. And the Presidential Policy Directives issued by him and his predecessors help demolish the walls of history, law, and constitutional enumerations that separate the executive and legislative powers.

Turkey 'planning to invade Syria'

Turkey has sent shock waves through the Middle East by preparing plans to send troops into Syria for the first time, turning the civil war into an international conflict on Europe’s borders.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has authorised a change in the rules of engagement agreed by the Turkish parliament to allow the army to strike at Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), as well as the Assad regime, according to local newspapers.

The aim is to establish a buffer zone for refugees and against Isil, but Mr Erdogan has also suggested that the main target of the intervention, if it goes ahead, will be to prevent the emergence of a Kurdish state on Turkey’s doorstep.

The Syrian Kurdish militia, the YPG, has established dominance in a border strip across the north of the country in recent months.

“We will never allow the establishment of a state in Syria’s north and our south,” Mr Erdogan said at the weekend. “We will continue our fight in this regard no matter what it costs.”

Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan (seated) heads the National Security Council meeting

Turkey has urged the creation of a buffer zone protected by international forces in the north of Syria ever since the civil war sent hundreds of thousands of refugees across the border.

That figure is approaching two million, making Turkey the single largest host of refugees of any country.

How Fast Can a Strip Mall Be Turned Into a FEMA Camp?

sheeple 2

In response to yesterday’s article which demonstrated how many malls are being constructed with guard towers, I received the following response i which I was quoted and then chastized:
“Following this report, Herb Lane followed up with some very disturbing information about this development. In Herb’s photos, they clearly show guard towers. Unfortunately, his photos could neither be “print screened” or converted to a JPEG, and as such, cannot be reproduced here” HOW CONVENIENT!
After reading today’s article, this gentleman will have absolutely no trouble understanding just how grave the situation is. Not only will this individual come to appreciate the danger that we are under with these developments and along with the concurrent roll out of Jade Helm, he will also learn how quickly a strip mall can be converted to a FEMA camp.

Guard Towers In Marana, AZ.

Yesterday, I put out a request for Southern Arizona residents to investigate the construction of a new, suspicious mall which was being constructed with guard towers like so many other shopping centers and strip malls in Canada, the UK and the U.S.
Brian Nelson was among several people who descended upon the mall to bring the members of “Sheeple Nation” the truth about what plans the globalists have in store for millions of Americans.
Hi Dave
I read your article today and was running errands when I remembered you were requesting photos of the mall. I only had my I phone and it is a few years old so didn’t get very good pictures and am not sure what format they are in. Hopefully you can use them but if not let me know and I will put a better camera in the car as I may have to go back into town tomorrow for feed. Thank you for your hard work and God bless you and yours.  Brian Nelson

This was enough to establish the fact that this “new mall”, located in Marana, Arizona and is owned by Simon Properties, who has an agreement with DHS, to turn their facilities into detention centers in times of national emergency, is being constructed with guard towers.
This was followed up with an email and a stunning picture sent to The Common Sense Show by John O’Hara from the Tucson area.
I was driving by the I-10 and Twin Peaks Rd this afternoon and snapped this pic for you because you said in your article that you needed a jpg.

 The following email and picture was sent to me by Julie and the following is a picture of the same mall in Marana.
I was able to take a few pictures of the Marana Mall on Twin Peaks Rd. off of I-10.   It is still under construction and very difficult to take pictures being that there isn’t a good place to park so I did my best.  One of the pictures shows the railroad track running along side of the mall.  I always felt this mall to be a bit eerie.  Now I know why!

I have contributions from 27 other Tucson/Marana residents that were sent to me since yesterday. I could go on and on, but I think the readers get the idea. One naysayer wrote to me yesterday and said this was just an isolated phenomena. Give the fact that I have published very similar photos in the past few days, and they were obviously missed/ignored, I will address this issue one more time.

Do You Think These Soon-to-be FEMA Camps Are Just An Isolated Phenomena?

The following was sent to me by a reader in Tampa.
Hi Dave,
I was shocked at how many towers there are with this new mall.  My husband said the towers are just popular right now…  Right!?  And for the wrong reason I told him.  At this point of construction, if I didn’t know it was going to be a mall I don’t think I would have guessed it from the looks of it.
The location is (conveniently) just off I-75 and approximately 25 minutes north of Tampa.  (Tampa is home to MacDill AFB which is where CENTCOM and SOCOM are located!) Keeping my eyes open in Central Florida for you.
For business reasons, this prominent business person asked to be only referred to as “Anonymous in Tampa”. Here is the revealing picture.
fema mall in tampa
Are we to believe that all across this nation, that city and county code inspectors are requiring the construction of guard towers for new malls and retrofitted closed malls like I showed you a couple of days ago in Washington state along the Canadian border? Or, can you now wrap your mind around the C word. “C” as in conspiracy against the American people?
Most of you know the look you get when you honestly try and convince a member of the “Sheeple Nation” that America is on life support and that tens of millions are in grave danger because of Jade Helm and the proliferation of the conversion of everyday structures into FEMA camps.  Along these lines, I was recently speaking with a friend of mine from Tennessee and began to point out how bad things in this country have become. Inevitably, the discussion began to center around the subject of unwarranted detention centers called FEMA Camps. My friend rolled his eyes and repeated the national anthem of all sheep, “I didn’t know you were one of them conspiracy theorists.” He couldn’t hold back the laughter.

"Remember, there are no conspiracy theories!"
“Remember, there are no conspiracy theories!”
conspiracy theorist 3

I was not deterred, because I was at home and I had my evidence and I thought the evidence was irrefutable. Most of you could write the following paragraphs.
I asked my friend if he knew that American citizens for any reason, or for no reason whatsoever could be detained under the NDAA and sent to a FEMA Camp? He said that the government would never use this law against American citizens. Unfortunately, the evidence suggest otherwise.

How Fast Could a Strip Mall Be Converted Into a FEMA Camp?

The following KBR memo and email clearly shows that any structure can ve converted into a FEMA camp complete with all the requisite fencing within 48-72 hours.
The following KBR memo and email clearly shows that any structure can be converted into a FEMA camp complete with all the requisite fencing within 48-72 hours.
I showed my asleep friend a leaked document in which KBR was telling its subcontractors to be prepared within 72 hours of notification to provide essential services to FEMA camps such as the installation of barbwire, blockades, personnel, food, water and sanitation services. I published this notice three years ago and one of my readers, Richard Firth, forwarded an email he sent to the document’s listed KBR official, Bob Seifert, and asked him for an explanation which could  justify the fact that KBR document was informing subcontractors to get ready to man the camps. Surely, I thought this would convince my friend. Below is the email exchange between Wirth and Siefert.

Dear Mr. Siefert:
I am given to understand that KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton, is in the process of activating the FEMA camps according to a leaked memo. I and many others would like to know why these camps are being activated?
I look forward to your response.
Sincerely- Richard W. Firth
Mr. Siefert wasted no time in answering Mr. Firth’s concerns as he provided a hastily prepared same day response.

Dear Mr. Firth,
Thank you for asking about the truth concerning our search for subcontractors. First, KBR is not a subsidiary of Halliburton, and hasn’t been since April of 2007. KBR intends to respond to an upcoming Request for Proposal. FEMA is looking for companies that can set up temporary camps to house First Responders to natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, tornados, floods, etc. The services included in the KBR request for information are ones we cannot provide ourselves and will need companies who can react quickly enough to meet the FEMA goal of having a place for their responders to stay within 72 hours of a call up. The camps will be temporary in nature, and nothing is being “activated”. FEMA is trying to be proactive in preparing for timely responses if emergency responses are required. I hope this answers your question.
Bob Siefert
Manager – Small Business
To summarize, KBR’s Siefert asserts that (1) the camps are temporary; (2) the camps are only being constructed for first responders who will be used in anticipated future natural disasters; and (3) the existing FEMA camps are not being activated. Why is the fencing always facing in so as to keep people in if these camps are only for volunteers?
Often in life, there is the stated reason for performing some action and then there is the real reason. Below are some key provisions which are part of the impetus for activating the FEMA camps which are contained in the Siefert KBR memo.
“The Continental US will be broken up into five regions as indicated in the map below Services” will be required in each State within each region.” (Author’s note) Interestingly, the South was also broken up into five military districts during the military occupation of the South during the Reconstruction Era following the Civil War.
“(Contractors will) Establish services listed below within 72 hours for initial set-up and respond within 24 hours for incremental services. This is a CONTINGENCY PROJECT and it should be stressed that lead times will be short with critical requirements due to the nature of emergency responses. Subcontractors must be flexible and able to handle multiple, shifting priorities in an emergency environment.”
Additionally, the KBR Siefert memo disturbingly calls for the installation of fencing and wire used for large scale detention of prisoners.
“Subcontractors will mobilize, transport, erect, install and demobilize temporary fencing, barricades, and associated equipment according to federal, state and local laws, codes and manufacturer installation instructions. The Subcontractor shall be able to mobilize and deploy key personnel(s) within four (4) hours of NTP to meet with KBR Site Manager at the Responder Support Camp (RSC) site in order to finalize the Thsite design plan and acquire site specific design requirements and layout. Number of linear footage:
“Approximately 2,300LF for a 301 person camp after 36 hours of NTP”
“Approximately 3,600LF for 1,000 person camp after 72 hours of NTP”
This sounds like FEMA Camp activation to me.
Through KBR, FEMA has ability to construct this kind of fencing around any mall in 48-72 hours of notification of the need. Malls and stadiums can be converted quickly.
Anytime, anywhere in two to three days.
Anytime, anywhere in two to three days.
If you attend sporting events, you are already being converted to accept FEMA camp detention
The conditioning of the sheep.
The conditioning of the sheep.
And the sheeple's children are being conditioned.
And the sheeple’s children are being conditioned as well.

When a reasonable person compares Siefert’s original memo to his response to Mr. Firth’s inquiry, the latter is clearly a poorly and hastily orchestrated version of damage control because his original  leaked memo was never meant to see the light of day. The KBR memo called for barricades, barbwire, food, water, sanitation, guards, etc. This is the material that prisons are made of, not temporary housing for first responders as Seifert alleges. Hastily staffed FEMA camp personnel would also fit the definition of first responders in the advent of widespread civil insurrection following something like a massive false flag or a looming currency collapse.
The indisputable fact is that many strip malls are being converted to makeshift FEMA camps that can ready for occupation within three days. I confess, as will many of my colleagues, I have never had such a feeling of foreboding. Something very bad is about to happen, I can feel it in my bones.

BRICS "The One World Currency Coming

The Chinese Parliament has ratified the creation of the BRICS Development Bank. The New Development Bank was conceived as a counterbalance to such Western-led financial institutions as the World Bank and the IMF.

The new bank will provide money for infrastructure and development projects in BRICS countries, that is Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Each nation will have an equal say in the bank’s management, regardless of GDP size.

Each BRICS member is expected to contribute an equal share in establishing a startup capital of $50 billion, with a goal of reaching $100 billion in capitalization. The BRICS bank will be headquartered in Shanghai, with India presiding as president during the first year, and Russia serving as the chairman of the representatives.

China has pledged to contribute a total of $41 billion to the NDB bank, which will give it the largest voting rights, at 39.5 percent, Reuters reports.

The agreement has already been ratified in India and Russia.

In China, the creation of the NDB bank, also known as the BRICS Bank, has been approved by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress at its meeting that runs until July 1.

It has been agreed that an African regional center of the NDB bank will be established in South Africa.

The launch of the BRICS bank is seen as a first step in breaking the dominance of the US dollar in global trade, as well as dollar-backed institutions such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, both US-based institutions that BRICS countries have little influence within.

However, top policymakers in China and Russia, including President Vladimir Putin, have repeatedly stressed the Bank isn’t a replacement for the established Western institutions, but is complementary.

South Africa is expected to present ratification documents in July during a meeting of BRICS countries in the Russian city of Ufa.

These Are The 7 Ways The Government Wants To Change The Human Body For The Future

“We’re not looking to make an app to get you a latte faster,” reads the slogan of Biology Is Technology, the Pentagon’s research symposium held this week in New York City. “We’re looking to solve problems that matter.” 

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency had tasked the best and brightest startups, major industry players and universities to create the Next Big Thing in science — no easy feat. (One big ask: As Mic reported Wednesday, DARPA expressed interest in controlling human adrenal responses, lowering anxiety and fear in U.S. soldiers.) “At DARPA, we think of these concepts in a human-centered way,” project manager Justin Sanchez said Tuesday at the conference, which is led by DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office. 

“We serve military personnel … Whether that’s on the battlefield or when they come home, these are the kinds of technologies that can be useful in both domains.” Controlling human fear was just the tip of the biotechnological iceberg. Here are the biggest takeaways from the symposium — the most exciting advances in tech and science the U.S. military is looking to invest in.

1. Brain-machine symbiosis

2. Controlling the nervous system

3. Terraforming Mars

4. Disease resistance

US blocks attempts by Arab allies to fly heavy weapons directly to Kurds to fight Islamic State

Image result for US blocks attempts by Arab allies to fly heavy weapons directly to Kurds to fight Islamic State

The United States has blocked attempts by its Middle East allies to fly heavy weapons directly to the Kurds fighting Islamic State jihadists in Iraq, The Telegraph has learnt.

Some of America’s closest allies say President Barack Obama and other Western leaders, including David Cameron, are failing to show strategic leadership over the world’s gravest security crisis for decades.

They now say they are willing to “go it alone” in supplying heavy weapons to the Kurds, even if means defying the Iraqi authorities and their American backers, who demand all weapons be channelled through Baghdad.

High level officials from Gulf and other states have told this newspaper that all attempts to persuade Mr Obama of the need to arm the Kurds directly as part of more vigorous plans to take on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) have failed. The Senate voted down one attempt by supporters of the Kurdish cause last month.

The officials say they are looking at new ways to take the fight to Isil without seeking US approval.

“If the Americans and the West are not prepared to do anything serious about defeating Isil, then we will have to find new ways of dealing with the threat,” said a senior Arab government official. “With Isil making ground all the time we simply cannot afford to wait for Washington to wake up to the enormity of the threat we face.”

Kurdish Peshmerga fighters train on a weapon during a training session with British military advisers

The Peshmerga have been successfully fighting Isil, driving them back from the gates of Erbil and, with the support of Kurds from neighbouring Syria, re-establishing control over parts of Iraq’s north-west.

But they are doing so with a makeshift armoury. Millions of pounds-worth of weapons have been bought by a number of European countries to arm the Kurds, but American commanders, who are overseeing all military operations against Isil, are blocking the arms transfers.

One of the core complaints of the Kurds is that the Iraqi army has abandoned so many weapons in the face of Isil attack, the Peshmerga are fighting modern American weaponry with out-of-date Soviet equipment.

At least one Arab state is understood to be considering arming the Peshmerga directly, despite US opposition.

Obama and Supreme Court Seizing Total Control

The Vatican Wants the Temple Mount Taken From the Jews

Image result for The Vatican Wants the Temple Mount Taken From the Jews

In 2000, speaking in a mosque in Palestinian-held Ramallah, Yasser Arafat declared, “No one will succeed in removing us from our land, including Jerusalem, and the Palestinian flag will fly from the Temple Mount and from the churches in Jerusalem.”

Arafat could say that because he had won the Vatican's support for his terroristic strategy. On June 26th, 2015, the Vatican signed its first treaty with the “State of Palestine”. It is the logical conclusion of a long path.

When the pontiff John Paul II ascended to the Temple Mount in 2000, Judaism’s most holy site, he wasn’t welcomed by Israeli officials, but by representatives of the Palestinian Authority, and the holy complex was bedecked in Arab flags. It was the Pope's implicit recognition of Islamic hegemony. It was taken to mean that Islam and Christianity superseded Judaism and have the right to “inherit” its holy places.

Since then, the Holy See’s taking a stance as the ally of the heads of the Palestinian Authority in the place most holy to the Jewish people, became almost a fait accompli.

The Catholic de-legitimization of Israel passes through the war on Jerusalem and the war on Jerusalem passes through the Temple Mount. The site where the Jewish people worshipped for hundreds of years and the focal point of every practicing Jew’s prayers is under assault from the Vatican.

The Vatican-PLO agreements have been signed to enable the eviction of the Jews from Jerusalem. This follows a memorandum signed by Palestinian and Vatican officials in 2000 which repeated the Vatican call for an international mandate to preserve “the proper identity and sacred character” of Jerusalem. It means a return to a time when half of Israel’s capital was under Islamic control, the Old City was closed to Jews, the synagogues were desecrated, and walls, barbed wire, and snipers divided the city by force.

The Vatican is consistent. In 1964, when Pope Paul VI made the first papal visit to Jerusalem, Jews and Christians with Israeli passports were barred from entering the Old City. And no Vatican official complained about that.

What will the Jews do apart from pleasing tyrants and their collaborators? Here's what they should do: Start taking control of the Temple Mount. It will be harder to chase them away if they do that.

950 Hezbollah operatives, 300 Hamas members in Germany

Lebanese Hezbollah supporters gesture as they march during a religious procession to mark Ashura

The number of Islamists in Germany increased to 43,890 in 2014 from 43,190 in 2013, according to a report released on Tuesday by the country’s domestic intelligence agency.

Radical Islamists are “the greatest danger to Germany,” said Hans-Georg Maassen, the president of the agency, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV). “Germany is on the spectrum of goals for Islamic terrorists,” he added.

Hezbollah has 950 active operatives in the Federal Republic, and Hamas has 300. Germany has designated Hamas as a terrorist organization. The Merkel administration along with the EU banned Hezbollah’s military wing in 2013, but allows its political wing to operate.

According to the BfV report, the number of Salafists in the country increased to 7,000 in 2014 from 5,500 the previous year. The Salafists are “the most dynamic Islamic movement in Germany” and serve as a recruitment pool for jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq, the report said.

The chapter on “Islamism and Islamic terrorism” states that at demonstrations against last summer’s Gaza war, there “were rather more Hamas-supporting events than peace demonstrations, and there was clearly public anti-Semitism.”

The anti-Semitic slogans targeted “Jews and Israel” and resulted in attacks on Jews and pro-Israel activists.

“Kill the Jews!” “Jews out!” and, “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas!” were some of the slogans chanted at the 2014 protests.

The BfV cited the arson at the Wuppertal synagogue in North Rhine-Westphalia state in June 2014. A local court exonerated the perpetrators, German Palestinians, of anti-Semitism. It said the men sought to bring “attention to the Gaza conflict” by tossing Molotov cocktails at the synagogue.

“Hamas was successful” in mobilizing its organization and people outside of its core support to participate in anti-Israel protests, the BfV report said. There was “public anti-Semitism at pro-Palestinian demonstrations” against Israel’s Operation Protective Edge, the agency said, adding, “It was noticeable that a large number of mostly young people with an immigrant background expressed themselves in an anti-Semitic and hate-filled way.”

While the demonstrations against Israel were driven by Islamists, the BfV noted that extremist Turks, as well as left-wing and rightwing fanatics, were present. Many participants had no recognizable extremist background, the agency wrote.

The number attacks by right-wing extremists soared to 990 in 2014, a 23.6 percent from 2013. The spike was animated by xenophobia and attacks on political refugee housing and asylum- seekers The BfV report noted that the far Right “says Israel and means Jews in general, and the label ‘Zionist’ serves as a synonym for ‘Jew’ for rightwing extremists.” The unifying factor for Islamists, the far Right and far Left, is a deep loathing of Jews, it said.

Participants at pro-Palestinian demonstrations attempted to camouflage their Jew-hatred by purporting to be solely anti-Zionist or anti-Israel, the report noted.
