Warning: Under The Radar Media advocates no hate or violence toward The Department of Homeland Security’s preferred cultural and ethno-religious group, or any other federally protected cultural, ethno-religious groups
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has awarded 97% of the$10 million in security grants to Jewish non-governmental organizations (NGO) for 2012 in order to “safeguard the Jewish community!” DHS Secretary Janet Napalitano recently gave an interview to Jane Eisner of The Forward regarding the news of the award to the American Jewish community, and to discuss Homeland Security’s ongoing commitment to the Jewish State of Israel.
This extraordinary payout to a very small religious, cultural and ethnic group is quite astonishing considering the many hundreds, if not thousands of NGO’s that currently exist in the US, from non-profit organizations that benefit underprivileged Americans to educational non-profit organizations. Napalitano and other Jewish leaders maintain that Jews face special risks that non-Jews do not face.
For instance, Napalitano cites the “intensified rhetoric between Israel and Iran” as justification for this preferential treatment. Napalitano also made the bizarre claim that Jews require special protection due to the 2009 Holocaust museum shooting, an attack that killed no Jews but rather left one Black security guard dead. Ironically, this paranoia has also caused some militant American Jews to take up arms and receive training from foreign troops on American soil, an activity that should be considered as subversive, if not outright terrorist activity by many law enforcement agencies.
One has to wonder, what kind of reaction this story would have received had it been reported in nightly news television broadcast media outlets such as FOX, CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC or NPR. The simple fact that this news wasn’t reported in mainstream televised or online news outlets should lead critical-thinking individuals to some pretty self-evident conclusions.
On a related side note, Under The Radar Media’s video production of “Homeland Security’s Janet Napalitano – Safeguarding the Jewish Community” has recently been uploaded to another YouTube channel and has been circulated fairly widely among many alternative news media websites. Unfortunately, the YouTube user that has the version that is getting the most traffic has the retitled the video “‘Jews Don’t have To Go Through TSA’: Homeland Security’s Janet Napalitano.”
This is rather unfortunate because the claim that “Jews don’t have to go through TSA” is totally inaccurate, at least at this point, and is not a claim that is made in the original video production. The video was already intentionally tongue-in-cheek and over the top, so the extra sensationalism of the false claim was totally unnecessary.
Nevertheless, it’s good that the video is making circulation. Despite the offending user’s inaccurate video title, we hope that the video itself will stand on its own and inspire some lively discussion.

Well no big shock the trial that had its date moved 9 times was finally dropped. The official excuse is not that it is illegal to spy but that its only illegal if the spies know that its harmful to the US for them to be stealing top secret documents in secret and pass them on to a foreign nation. I’m not kidding. That was the official excuse. The prosecution would have to prove not that Steve Rosen and Keith Weissmen knew they were spying which is illegal, but that they knew what they were stealing could be harmful to the US. What they were stealing was information that was good for Israel and helped act in creating more pre-war lies about Iraq and Iran. They basically said hey you punish us and we will narc on everyone, so the case was dropped.
In a recent decision that reaches new lows, the weak and neutered Obama administration has bowed to its masters in Israel with regards to the Durban 2, the UN’s conference on racism. This news comes on the heels of alleged back and forth dialog between US State Department officials and Israeli officials on some of the language of the text of the Durban 2 document which is critical of Israel’s ongoing occupation of the West Bank and Gaza.
The Huffington Post reports:
On the call, which the Huffington Post managed to listen in on, National Security Council aide Samantha Power stressed that while progress had been made on the text of the Durban 2 document, not enough had been done to get the United States to the table.
The current working text, she said, “met two of our four red lines frontally, in the sense that it went no further than reparations and it did drop all references to Israel and all anti-Semitic language. But it continued to reaffirm, in toto, Durban 1. And while it did drop specific references to defamation, it continues to include very problematic language on incitement… that are out of line with core US commitments to free speech. “
So the article suggests that the demands were US demands, but were they really US demands, or the demands of a foreign government? According to a February 2009 report by Haaretz and the Associated Press, the Obama administration had “fended off Israeli pressure and decided to attend Durban 2.” So what happened here? There is little room for mere speculation, aside from my own which I maintain that our presidency, nor our Congress are serving the interests of the the average American on many issues.
It’s been almost one year since Obama was forced address the firebrand Reverend Jeremiah Wright controversy, and speech entitled “A More Perfect Union” was the way he dealt with the matter. Here were a few key statements from that speech:
Race is an issue that I believe this nation cannot afford to ignore right now...The fact is that the comments that have been made and the issues that have surfaced over the last few weeks reflect the complexities of race in this country that we’ve never really worked through – a part of our union that we have yet to perfect. And if we walk away now, if we simply retreat into our respective corners, we will never be able to come together.
So the US, along with Canada and Australia were, in my opinion, were forced not to attend Durban 2 by powerful Zionist Jewish interests. The Zionists of the world and their international lapdogs, Jew and gentile alike, don’t like facts, nor figures nor historical context. The way the Zionist handles a disagreement is to smear, harass, ignore and bully and the treatment of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the opening day of the conference is proof of that.
