Get Your Banned News Here

I am going to publish the very important article on the plot to attack Iran at noon GMT on this site. Other sites are welcome to republish it, and I would be grateful if each and every reader can do whatever is in their power to get it seen, be that reposting it yourself, sending it to an outlet, retweeting it, facebook messaging it, emailing a link or just telling your mates or family to look at it.

To remind you, here is the extraordinary reaction from the mainstream outlets I write for regularly. I have left nothing out from the replies I received. Nobody found a single fact that did not check out, and nobody could claim it was not newsworthy. They simply prevaricated and passed it around various editors in a risible buck-passing exercise.

The extremely strong Israeli influence on the media is not a theoretical construct. It has a real existence, vast amounts of real money and physical mechanics of operation. Anybody who doubts this should read this recent leaked internal email from BICOM, a full time highly-funded Israeli lobby organisation which was closely linked to Adam Werritty. Their direct and day to day access to those making editorial decisions could not be more clear.

We can’t match anything like their funding, and they can block me from mainstream media effectively. But we have honesty and we have effort. Noon. Be ready.

  3. Craig, have you seen this article in todays Guardian?
    I am awestruck by the olympian hypocrisy of this; so groups in Israel critical of their own government are restricted in the funding they can receive from outside, while the government of Israel receives billions of dollars from the USA. Words fail me.

  4. Mike Cobley,
    well they are on exact footsteps of Uzbekistani regime.

  5. All the Zionists need to do to cut criticism at its root is to shout Anti-Semitism!

    Robert Mugabe should try that.

  7. Arsalan – but that’s no reason not to circulate the article as far as we can.


  8. Still wondering who funds CFoI, LFoI and LDFoI….couldn’t possibly be a foreign government, could it?

  9. O wow. Watching this space!

  10. Way to go, Craig.

  11. If you want to hear public school accented pure black propaganda then listen to this smooth looking ‘Arab’ from the Doha branch office of Brookings. About Syria of course, and a sure indication they will be bombing the people around the time the Christ child is in the news – after the poppies.
    Supporters of president Assad have attacked the embassies of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey after the Arab League’s decided to suspend Syria. Salman Shaikh, director of the Doha centre for the independent think tank the Brookings Institution, gives his views on whether the Arab League will continue to apply pressure to Syria’s government.

  12. You could also listen to the Chief Rabbi of Britain and the Commonwealth at 7.47 am. You guessed right. He spoke of the slaughter on many thousands of Jews by the Nazis but showed his exceptionalism/racism/supremacism/chosenness by mentioning no other victims.

    This interview was a wee bit disturbing. The problem apparently is not the tabloids the bloggers. And the interviewer has no follow-up questions to that epic nonsense…

  14. I trust that this website’s security is at max. They will stop at nothing.

  15. I listened to the vaccuous talk on radio 4 this morning, how the media is clamping down its hacking that no super injunction had been taken out and that levenson will not need to regulate.

    It is all being grassed over and soon we will hear the humming of the Party machines again to cut it to a unison hight for all.
    What a bunch of bleeding heart apologists for outright criminal behaviour by many, including the police who is silently investigating its own conduct in the affair, phoa what a stink!

  16. I’ll distribute as widely as possible, Facebook, Twitter, and re-blog myself with a prominent link to here. Go Craig!

  17. Looking forward to it. Will happily repost on my humble blog.

  18. You get a mention in this US regional outlet, Craig.
    See the NYT is also whingeing about “antisemitic tropes”
    I caught an antisemitic trope once, with a beachcaster, using lugworm…

  19. Well done Craig, good stuff. I wonder if the MSM will be marginally more inclined to take a variant on this piece after your publish it? Once the genie is out of the bottle, and “someone else” has been the first to publish, it is easier for others to follow suit.

  20. “I caught an antisemitic trope once, with a beachcaster, using lugworm …”
    The bit of humour is invaluable. :)

    As is very well-known in the realm of marketing, word of mouth is not only the cheapest but the most effective form of advertising. The irony — provided that ‘stunning,’ Craig, does not dissolve into mere hyperbole — is that the story’s apparent suppression, as an incidental consequence of sustained ‘lobby’ pressure from the likes of BICOM & supine hack compliance, is precisely what propels it onto another level, geographically as well as numerically. I await greatly increased interest/response in North America, for example, than would otherwise have been the case. The ‘story of the story,’ in other words, already ensures its much wider dissemination.
    NB: Despite sustained & scandalous success by AIPAC in effectively determining US policy in the Middle East, poll after poll shows that the majority of US citizens defining themselves as Jewish do not in fact favour that policy, let alone its mass-murderous consequences. Many more of them shall henceforth be among your readership.

  22. I’ve prepared a few individuals to start posting as soon as the info is available.

    Komodo, my protection software has denied access to your link which mentions Craig. Is there something to do with drugs in the article? That’s what grounds it appears to have been prohibited on.

  23. Mary

    Has it ever struck you that you might just be as one sided in your comments and links as your own perception of the BBC? The truth is that rather a lot of Jews were killed by the Nazis among the many others they killed and that the Syrian government is behaving in an appalling manner to its own citizens – just as Israel and many others are also gulity of human rights abuses. Only the blind – wilful or otherwise can seen these matters as balck and white rather than varying shades of gray.

  24. Craig, you are living in United Jewish Kingdom of Britain.
    Be careful.
    Look forward to reading your posts as always with interest.

  25. I see that the first comment from a troll has appeared.

  26. Stephen the surpremacy claimed by the Holocaust meorial worldwide expansionists has persistently tried to black out all the others that were deported to the gas chambers. Further the refusal to remember other Hollocausts on their memorial day, speaks volumnes. Rather to make this an unequivocal rememberance day for all attrocities comitted in similar manner, the chosen ones really can’t contemplate a common level, not even in death.

    It looks like the ‘Syrian resolve to die for one’s beliefs’ has been taken up by Oaklnads citizens unfazed by the bullying of their police.

  27. Good man yourself Craig. I’ve already got my forwarding list set up!

  28. “Stephen the surpremacy claimed by the Holocaust meorial worldwide expansionists has persistently tried to black out all the others that were deported to the gas chambers.”

    Well it has failed – I have never heard decent people like Lord Sachs deny that there were other victims of the Nazis. To try and say that people should contemplate attrocities on a common level just runs counter to human nature I’m afraid – everyone remembers their own ancestors and communities first. I would like to suggest that you go and tell the Russians to adopt such an approach on the 9th May and commemorate the fallen of other countires on a common level with their own.

    Mary – so what is a troll – someone who disagrees with your view of the world and says why without resorting to insinuation? If so more than happy with your label.

  29. John Goss -no, no mention of drugs, but quite a lot of Gilad Atzmon! And there may be an antisemitic trope hanging around on the bottom in the hopes of catching a surfer….
    It’s a not-very-well written rehash of some familiar material re. Israels undue influence, and it contains a quote from one of Craig’s “Mail” pieces.

  30. Ignoring this is a make or break decision by polititions and media. Men or cowards.
    Your courage is inspiring. You have sown the seeds and justified your existance. . Great good will come out of it. Best wishes.
    I have forewarded to 4 newspapers. We can then see who scares them.

    Oxus Gold on getting shafted by the Uzbeks:
    …Looking back at 2010 Oxus had at the beginning of the year progressed discussions with a Chinese Consortium to a point where on 6 January 2010 it entered into a US$185 million financing agreement which would have enabled Oxus to build and develop the underground Sulphide mine for AGF in Uzbekistan.

    Despite an extensive due diligence undertaken by the Consortium which indicated the strong viability of constructing and developing the mine, it became obvious by late 2010 that even though the investment was to be made at the level of Oxus Gold, the Uzbek government would not welcome the development of a gold mine in Uzbekistan by Chinese investors.

    Both I and senior management of the company consider the Uzbek position as very short-sighted. An inward investment of up to $185 million would have been positive for the Uzbek gold mining industry and would have created employment opportunities for people in the region of the proposed mine. As a consequence of the Uzbek government’s negative reaction to the transaction, the Chinese Consortium terminated their agreement with Oxus in December 2010. This had the effect of impairing Oxus’s liquidity and operational capabilities in Uzbekistan.

    Events following the withdrawal of the Chinese Consortium led our directors to believe that it would be in the best interest of shareholders to sell the 50% shareholding in AGF to the Uzbek government. Despite assurances that a buy-out by Oxus’ Uzbek joint venture partners was in principle acceptable to the Uzbek government, Oxus then faced an ongoing attack campaign against it by the Uzbek government. These attacks included Uzbekistan’s failure to issue certain licences to AGF, a frivolous court action initiated by the Uzbek Ministry of Finance, and pressure from Oxus’ Uzbek joint venture partners to liquidate AGF despite AGF under trying circumstances producing a profit of US$4.82 million for the twelve months to 31 December 2010.

    The attacks against Oxus continued into 2011, with the first quarter marked by an arbitrary and onerous Uzbek government audit of AGF that effectively excluded Oxus from its investment in Uzbekistan. Oxus and AGF personnel fled the country over legitimate concerns about their safety, and Oxus was forced to declare force majeure as to its management obligations toward AGF.

    Also in 2011, Oxus retained the international law firm Amsterdam & Peroff LLP to protect the interests of Oxus and its shareholders against the wrongful conduct of the Uzbek government, and to pursue the legal remedies available to Oxus. Oxus’ subsequent attempts to discuss and resolve the issues with the Uzbek government proved unproductive. Consequently, on 31 August 2011, Oxus served a Notice of Arbitration on Uzbekistan under the Agreement for the Promotion and Protection of investments dated 24 November 1993 between the United Kingdom and the Republic of Uzbekistan (the Investment Treaty). Among other things, the Investment Treaty requires the Uzbek government to treat Oxus fairly and equitably as an investor, to refrain from discriminating against Oxus, and to provide Oxus with full protection and security. Oxus asserts in the arbitration that the conduct of the Uzbek government constitutes a systematic violation of the Investment Treaty, and that Oxus is entitled, in addition to other relief, to full compensation for its injuries in an amount estimated to be no less than $400 million. This amount includes a claim in respect of the Khandiza base metals project, which the Uzbek Government took from Marakand Minerals in 2006 without offering any compensation at the time.

    The filing of the Notice of Arbitration represents significant progress toward obtaining redress for Oxus and its shareholders, and comes as a result of considerable effort by Oxus personnel and its international legal counsel. I am confident in the strength of Oxus’ claims, and pleased with the progress of the arbitration. Nevertheless, we remain, as always, open to a resolution of the dispute on fair and equitable terms….

  32. North…,
    as someone who has dealt with Uzbeki officials in the past as an investor, I could tell you that you will get nothing from them. None will decide your decision unless Karimov or his daughter gets involved with personal interest. sorry, mate, you guys made big mistake investing in a stalinist regime with no laws abiding. all laws in uzbekistan are in paper. in actual life, it’s karimov, his state and family linked mafia and fat beauracrats make decisions.
    the option of resolving your case through british government channels has also no prospect based on the following:
    -firstly, british diplomatic mission members in tashkent are now all rubbish, all including the ambassador, are arse lickers of karimov;they won’t dare to say anything against the local regime;

    -secondly, americans are again back in friendship with the local regime and so are british foreign policy representatives because of afghanistan. well, you must know uzbekistan has the biggest and the most convenient airbase that can be used to bomb the talibs in the region; besides, if there is war with iran, that base can also easily be used.

    the only way out in your situation is going thru english and european courts and getting uzbek national companies’ assets arrrested such as uzbekistan airways’ fleet, uzbekistan related insurance company’s share in AIG in London, state cotton companies in France, Switzerland. There was a case some years ago when assets of above mentioned companies were arrested due to foreign investment related court case. you can find similar case of Uzdon v. Romak on internet.

    ~my final advice: do not trust uzbeki officials and their promises. they just drag you so that you can become crazy one day or die out of hopelessness.

    well, i wish you success in something obviously difficult.

  33. Dear Craig,

    Thank you for this piece and for your unflinching courage. This piece must come out. I suggest you try AlAkhbar English, a Lebanese pro-gov daily:



  34. I Larry Levin pledge allegiance to craig murray and the principles(excluding the homosexual stuff) for which he stands, And stand ready to go into electronic battle when the orders are given,


    SH: It is clear to me that governments, all of our governments, are terribly intimidated by Israeli propaganda and unfortunately they are not strong enough to really act. They have drafted resolutions but they are not implementing them; they come together in Quartets but nothing occurs. For that reason we feel that civil pressure from public opinion is absolutely needed. We are not too hopeful that it will prevail quickly but I also have the feeling, and that is the focus of my “Time for Outrage”, that it is time for the civil population to take responsibility.

  36. “Noon. Be ready.” Craig.
    Sounds like the Gunfight at the OK Corral!
