Paris conference on hold; new book project underway

I have been informed by Professor Hatem Bazian that the Paris Conference is likely being cancelled and, in the event it does take place, my paper will no longer be accepted - all this due to the 11/13 attacks. Unfortunately I already purchased a plane ticket.

So I will either:

(1) (in the event I can get a refund, either from Hatem or from the airline) use the money raised for this project toward a new book (see above);


(2) go to Paris anyway and read the paper in front of cameras outside the venue as a protest.

Meanwhile, I will be emailing donors to solicit their views on how I should respond to these new and unfortunate circumstances.

SUCCESS! Bringing truth to mainstream academic conference - thank you for your support!

Here's a huge thank-you to everyone who contributed to my GoFundMe page "Send Blacklisted Prof to Paris."  We raised over $2,000 in just a few days - an amazing outpouring of support for truth-in-academia!

Along with attending the Islamophobia and Eroding Civil Society Conference, I will be promoting the book We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo: Free Thinkers Question the French 9/11...and working to translate the book into French.

Once again, thank you! I couldn't do this work without you.

My paper was accepted - please send me to Paris!

I have launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise $2,000 - actually $1,999, since I am kicking in a dollar of my own - so I can present a hard-hitting truth-telling paper at the  3rd Paris Islamophobia Conference. Below is my paper proposal that was accepted.

Presenting this paper at a mainstream academic conference in Paris - one month before the Charlie Hebdo anniversary - would strike a powerful blow for free expression and free thought. Please go to my GoFundMe page and donate what you can.

Taboo on Questioning: Silencing the Muslim Other

Dr. Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, Press TV commentator, author, independent scholar

The Paris shootings of January 7th and 9th, 2015 alarmed different groups for different reasons. The perceived violent attack on free speech by “radicalized” Muslims panicked French and Western mainstream institutions and the masses under their influence. The French and global Muslim communities were equally alarmed, not only by the apparent manifestation of the problem of “Islamic” violent obscurantism, but also by the stunning wave of Islamophobia triggered by the event, and the demand that they join Western secularists in celebrating, and identifying with, pornographic blasphemy. Additionally, the Muslim community was terrorized by the silencing of well-founded questions about the facts and meaning of the shootings.

This paper argues that the silencing of Muslims' questions about the so-called war on terror, and the individual instances of violence that collectively constitute it, amounts to a kind of intellectual genocide. In what has become a familiar pattern, the January 2015 Paris shootings were depicted by official Western institutions as an example of Muslims' aggression against the West. By contrast, the Muslim-majority view – that Islam has been on the defensive for centuries, never more so than now, and that iconic examples of alleged Islamic aggression have in fact been largely fabricated by Western security agencies to mobilize public opinion for a war on Islam – has been ruthlessly suppressed from official discourse.

Why was police investigator Helric Fredou ordered off the Charlie Hebdo case and then “suicided” on January 8th?1 Why was a fake shooting of a policeman staged as the “terrorists” were fleeing the Charlie Hebdo offices?2 Were the alleged terrorists really identified only because they accidentally dropped an ID card?3 What are we to make of Netanyahu's repeated threats during the run-up to the shootings that if France recognized or sided with Palestine it would be hit by terrorists?4 Were the Paris shootings part of a Gladio B false flag terror program?5 The Muslim majority that doubts official accounts of iconic “Islamic terror” events has been denied the right to free thought and critical inquiry, and prohibited from exercising intellectual self-defense, by the taboo on asking such questions.

Christians stand with Muslims at JUSTICE OR ELSE rally in DC!

The Nation of Islam just brought hundreds of thousands of people to Washington DC to stand up for truth and justice. Unfortunately, relatively few Muslims from other groups and backgrounds attended. Check out my dispatch from the rally:

Farrakhan’s “Justice or Else” march rocks DC! 9/11 truth and justice among issues highlighted by mega-event

Today, Muslims are the biggest target of injustice on a world-historical scale. The 9/11 false flag propaganda coup continues to drive a global war of genocide against the religion of Islam and its followers. Yet the vast majority of American Muslims are apparently OK with that.

I was able to travel to Washington DC to cover this huge, critically-important event thanks to a generous Christian donor who supports 9/11 truth. He urged me to convey the message: "CHRISTIANS STAND WITH MUSLIMS."

Thank you, Christians.

But where are the Muslims? Minister Farrakhan's Nation of Islam is ready to speak the truth and lay it on the line for justice. What about the others? Apparently they are cowering in their mosques, intimidated by moronic scumbags like Jon Ritzheimer and his idiotic "anti-Islam protests." At best they may be good for a few verbal sallies on social media. But God forbid that the roughly 80% of Muslims who, according to many polls, know that 9/11 was an inside job should proactively spread that awareness...much less demand justice.

The original Muslim community had the courage to speak the truth and defend itself. Apparently today's Muslims - with some honorable exceptions including the Nation of Islam - are complete cowards...making them de facto members of the army of shaitan. They will surely have to answer to God. I cannot imagine how they expect to be judged as anything other than the lowest and vilest of human beings - fools who have misused a great inheritance, squandered goodness, and gone over to the side of evil.

Reflections from Nazi HQ @BerlinWall

SS/Gestapo headquarters: The Topography of Terror museum, adjacent to the Berlin Wall

by Kevin Barrett, TruthJihad.com reporting from Berlin

I just visited "the most historically contaminated site on earth" (with the possible exception of New York's Ground Zero): The Topography of Terror Museum on the site of the Third Reich's Main Security Office, headquarters for the SS and Gestapo. The museum is adjacent to the biggest remaining section of the Berlin Wall.

The Terror Museum and Berlin Wall exhibits, like New York's 9/11 Museum at Ground Zero, focus relentlessly on real and imagined crimes of "our" enemies, while ignoring or whitewashing the much greater crimes that "we" have committed and are still committing. Monuments to intellectual cowardice and victors' history, such exhibits pay unconscious tribute to the might-makes-right principle epitomized by the Nazis, "our" nightmare enemy and shadow self.

The exhibits at the Topography of Terror museum relentlessly drive home a supremely ironic lesson: The Nazis used carefully-crafted psychological operations, mostly focused on demonizing real or alleged enemies, to engineer consent and mobilize majority support. The Museum seems oblivious to the way today's West has become a topography of terror beyond the dreams of Hitler or the nightmares of Orwell – using precisely the same Nazi techniques that were pioneered by Karl Schmitt, brought to the USA by Leo Strauss, and imposed on the whole West, and much of the world, after the American Reichstag Fire of September 11th, 2001.

The Topography of Terror museum reminds us that here, in the basement of SS/Gestapo headquarters, thousands of "disappeared" people were tortured and/or extrajudicially executed. Meanwhile, all over the world, today's Fourth Reich – led by the US government and other vassals of the international bankers – disappears, tortures, and extrajudicially executes people with impunity, thanks to the State of Emergency triggered by the 9/11 Reichstag Fire. Yet the museum fails to inform visitors that they, as citizens of Western nations, are complicit in these Nazi-style crimes.

In today's triumphalist West, the cruel, unethical, non-consensual human experimentation of the Nazi Doctors is universally deplored. Yet similarly atrocious experiments, using the latest in electronic weapons, continue with active or tacit support of Western governments – as documented by the Covert Harassment Conference in which I am participating. Dr. Mengele, eat your heart out.

Like the exhibits focusing on the crimes of the Nazis, those documenting the horrors of the Berlin Wall are triumphalist monuments to history written by the victors. "Hooray for us, we beat the evil Nazis. Hooray for us, we beat the evil Communists. Please ignore the holocausts of Dresden, Hamburg, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, the millions of innocent Germans slaughtered by Allied occupiers, the genocide of the Palestinians, the sixty million people murdered since World War II by US military and CIA 'interventions'..."

The tourists ogling what's left of the Berlin Wall seem to think that in today's world – or at least in today's West – all the walls are down. Tell that to the ten million refugees from the West's 9/11-driven Terror Wars who are trying to scale the walls of Fortress Europe and being beaten back. And tell that to the Palestinians, who have to deal daily with sadistic, murderous Zionist psychopaths at checkpoints that make Cold War era Checkpoint Charlie look tame if not downright friendly.

The Berlin Wall, in its heyday, symbolized the unfreedom of those who know they are unfree. Everyone who gazed upon it, in real life or in pictures, knew exactly what it meant. Today, New York's Unfreedom Tower symbolizes a new, more insidious unfreedom: The unfreedom of those who haven't the slightest idea how unfree they actually are...and have no interest in finding out.

The new Berlin Walls are invisible. They are built by successors to Edward Bernays. Rather than walling off portions of cities, they wall off certain thoughts, or potential thoughts, within our minds.

On the plane ride from New York to Berlin, I made the acquaintance of an intelligent and generally open-minded German lawyer. We discussed a number of "difficult" subjects, including 9/11 truth and the Covert Harassment Conference. But when I mentioned that my False Flag Weekly News co-host Jim Fetzer was unable to attend the Conference for fear he would be arrested as a Holocaust revisionist, her response was an angry outburst: "He should be arrested!" My attempt to gently turn the conversation toward a dispassionate consideration of Holocaust revisionism got nowhere. On that one subject, at least, even such a bright and free-thinking German seemed to be imprisoned behind an invisible Berlin Wall of the Mind.

The Berlin Wall protecting the Holocaust from scrutiny isn't entirely invisible. When a German attempts to scale the wall and enter forbidden territory, he or she is kidnapped, incarcerated, and put on trial for thoughtcrime. But as the Topography of Terror exhibits show, it is mass mind control, not physical force, that serves as the primary instrument of totalitarian societies and enables their worst crimes against humanity.

And that is why the Covert Harassment Conference is so important. Courageous whistleblowers have made it abundantly clear that we are about to enter a new era – if we haven't entered it already – in which covert electronic weaponry and invisible mind-control technology will create totalitarian gulag states that annihilate free will and turn humans into robotic slaves.

It is bad enough that Germans have been guilt-tripped and implanted with a subconscious taboo against questioning the history their conquerors imposed on them, so that an alarm goes off deep in their minds, triggering unbearable anxiety, when someone mentions holocaust revisionism.

Such "natural" mind-control techniques can be opposed and exposed. With heroic effort, individuals can fight through the anxiety, tear down their Inner Berlin Wall, enter the forbidden zone, and think freely.

But imagine that a sufficiently advanced technology can remotely read minds and trigger physical and emotional responses to certain thoughts. Imagine that whenever the subject begins to think about holocaust revisionism, a wave of unbearable anxiety, indistinguishable from the natural variety except more intense, is automatically triggered...and escalated until the subject's thoughts turn away, at which point a remotely-triggered sense of relief is offered as a reward.

Such mind-control weapons would make certain thoughts literally unthinkable. By doing so, they would terminate freedom with extreme prejudice, thereby ending humanity as we know it.

Do the crowds of sheeple gazing at the Berlin Wall and Nazi HQ exhibits have the slightest inkling that the "free world" they inhabit is well along the road to being far more unfree than any totalitarian society that has ever existed?

Help preserve human freedom: Attend or support the Covert Harassment Conference
