Jewish Judge Orders Release of Muslim Torture Photos*
Zionist latest streak of revenge depicting like Israel how barbaric the U.S. is!? Just to turn up the WWIII fever pitch… This is where the patience and strategy of Iran and Russia become lessons in those who seek to taunt us.

The Pentagon has said it is not releasing decade-old photos showing abuse of prisoners in Afghanistan and Iraq because they could be used by ISIL to incite “lone wolf” attacks in the west and endanger US military personnel. Making the photos public “would facilitate the enemy’s ability to conduct information operations and could be used to increase anti-American sentiment,” the Pentagon said in a filing submitted to a federal court in Manhattan last Friday.
More than 2,100 photos were taken at several US bases following the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan and reportedly depict, among other abuses, the rape of women and a minor boy.
A federal judge has ordered the release of about 2,000 photos depicting the abuse of prisoners in U.S. military custody–images that President Barack Obama declared years ago should be kept from public view.
New York-based U.S. District Court Judge Alvin Hellerstein said he told government lawyers last month that he viewed a certification then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta signed in 2012 as not legally adequate to withhold the photos. The judge called the finding “deficient because it was not sufficiently individualized and it did not establish the Secretary’s own basis for concluding that disclosure would endanger Americans.”
The judge offered the Obama administration an opportunity to provide a more detailed certification by this week, but officials declined to meet that deadline, while insisting that a re-certification is underway on a somewhat longer timeline.
Does this mean that we weren’t shown the real atrocity photos?
If not, then ‘Abu Ghraib’ was a PSYOP, to make us believe we had seen the full extent of US torture. As Donald Rumsfeld quipped at the time, “reminds me of my frat hazing at Princeton, heh heh.”
The article tells or teases us that the photos they want to show now “reportedly depict, among other abuses, the rape of women and a minor boy”.
The question is ‘why now’? The suit was filed by the ACLU’s Alex Abdo. He says: “Transparency”.
The Pentagon holds that plastering old photos of US soldiers abusing Muslims will hand terrorists fuel for their own propaganda campaign, enraging potential ‘lone wolf’ ISIS copycats in the US and Europe to act out.
We know exactly what will happen if photos of US soldiers raping and torturing Muslim women and children are released. The images will be burned into our eyes and minds on TELEVISION news and saturate the internet for months. Children will be able to sketch each image from memory within a week.
What justice will such ‘transparency’ serve? Here’s what will happen: The media driven ISIS propaganda campaign will be the beneficiary of the photos, and we WILL see the so called ‘lone wolf’ ISIS copycats in the US and Europe* just as the Pentagon spokesmen predict.
Wouldn’t a slick ACLU lawyer like Abdo and the Federal judge know this? Releasing such images for ‘transparency’ doesn’t wash. These legal eagles are well acquainted with the analogy of “shouting fire in a crowded theater”*.
The Federal judge in charge of this case is : Alvin Hellerstein.
Who is he? Read on…
U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein oversees all 9-11 related tort cases, few of which are widely reported.
His father, a Bronx attorney, immigrated to Israel in 2001. His son Joseph Z. Hellerstein lives on the West Bank and practices law with one of Israel’s most important law firms, Amit, Pollak & Matalon.
That’s the law firm that represents Cukierman & Company, the parent company of ICTS International Security.
ICTS was the security contractor of all the airports involved in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
Cukierman & Co. is headed by Roger Cukierman and his son Edouard. Previously, Roger was CEO of the Edmond de Rothschild Group and chairman of the Israel General Bank. He has also served as the chairman of several venture capital funds established by the Rothschild Group. One of these funds, the Catalyst Fund, is run by Boaz Harel, a managing partner of private equity at Cukierman & Co. – and the head of ICTS at the time of 9-11.
Judge Hellerstein is a 911 ‘gatekeeper’ with a 14 year history of blocking 911 victims families attempts to get ‘transparency’.
