A Face to Launch 1,000 Ships? No, not Helen but Ileana, not of Troy, but of the Tribe, and not ships but missiles.

Ileana Ross-Lehtinen

Ileana Ross-Lehtinen wants Iran destroyed for the “security” of Israel.

Ileana Ross-Lehtinen, whom Alan Hart called the “zionist lobby’s First Lady” and “Zionist lobby’s chief stooge,” provides an emblematic case study of a sayan in a high position of power in the American government who works to further Israel’s and jewish power’s interests not only in disregard of but against the interests of the American people.

Who is she really?

Hailing from a family of jews in Turkey who immigrated to Cuba, where she was born, she said her mother was converted to Catholicism and that she herself was Episcopalian. In recent years she has not mentioned her episcopalianism, certainly not in evidence when she twittered, “Gr8 2 speak honoring Rebbe’s #LivingLegacy; thx 2 @Lubavitch 4 & Rabbi Shemtov 4 strengthening the Jewish ppl!, a joyous outburst posted via web that she apparently regretted 22 seconds later when she deleted it, but not before some busybody Goy captured it.

Like Kissinger and other jews who boldly went where few jews had gone before, into the Republican party (which needed serious kosherizing), she became the first Republican elected to the House from Florida and quickly rose to prominence, all the way to the chairmanship of the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Trying to deduce her allegiances and sympathies from her background is a difficult enterprise. If she has any nostalgia or emotional ties to the country of her birth, Cuba, its people and culture, they are more likely to be as ineffable as Proustian memories of flavors, say, the taste not of madeleines but of those sweet Cuban alfajores.

Otherwise nothing but callous indifference and hostility is evident from her support of the unlawful economic blockade imposed by the US for decades on that small island. The Cuban people are to her what Shahak described the Russian mujiks to be to the Russian jews: unwashed Goy rabble.

What does this Episcopalian actually do to “strengthen the jewish ppl”? What doesn’t she do? One of her most most generous donors is Irving Moskowitz, a very rich man who made his bundle by hard work as a “gambling magnate,” and who finances jewish settlements in East Jerusalem. It would be crude and hasty, however, to assume that it is because of his generous campaign contributions to her that she called for the US to defund the UN Palestinian Refugee Agency. I believe that Ross-Lehtinen and Moskowitz are sincerely of one mind.

She is also extremely vigilant as a peace maker and supporter of the peace process negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, which is why she vigorously objected when the Obama administration allowed the PLO to place the Palestinian flag outside its office in Washington, DC:

Raising this flag in [the District of Columbia] is part of the Palestinian leadership’s scheme to manipulate international acceptance and diplomatic recognition of a yet-to-be-created Palestinian state while refusing to directly negotiate with Israel or accept the existence of Israel as a democratic, Jewish state.”

In 2011 she went on to condemn the Palestinian Authority’s proposed Security Council resolution reaffirming the illegality of Israeli settlements in the Occupied Territories as “part of the same strategy aimed at extracting concessions without being required to meet international commitments.”

On the murder by Israeli commandos of the peace volunteers on board the Mavi Marmara in international waters she spoke out vehemently against Israel’s critics:

Israeli soldiers had every right to defend their lives against a lynch mob attacking them with knives and clubs.”

Keeping her eyes peeled for Israel’s enemies, she has come up with a new “axis of evil”: Iran-Nicaragua-Venezuela. She informed the House Committee of Foreign Relations (HCFR) of just how dangerous this axis is for the security interests of … the United States, of course:

“Iran’s Ahmadinejad has had a receptive audience in Chavez who has been willing to work hand-in-hand with Tehran on everything from joint banking schemes, to oil and gas ventures, to military and security agreements, to technological partnerships. Chavez is reportedly selling uranium to the Iranian regime for use in Iran’s nuclear program. Iran’s Banco Internacional de Desarrollo, sanctioned by the U.S. for aiding Iranian agencies involved in Iran’s nuclear proliferation, is also conducting business in Venezuela. In April of this year, Iran and Venezuela signed a defense pact in which Iran pledged to promote Venezuela’s defense capabilities. Lest we forget, though, Chavez is merely following the model first set-up by the Cuban dictatorship which has a joint bio-technology venture with the Iranian regime—a regime with a reported bioweapons program. News reports this week state that Ecuador’s Rafael Correa has agreed to host a branch of Iran’s Export Development Bank. Nicaragua now has an Iranian diplomatic mission in Managua. U.S. intelligence officials emphasize that Iran uses its embassies to smuggle in weapons and to develop and execute its deadly plans. This growing axis brings the Iranian threat closer to the U.S. and directly undermines our critical security interests. Where is the sense of urgency from U.S. officials in countering this threat?”

Her American patriotism, coupled with her Episcopalian faith, sharpen her vision, scanning the horizon for enemies of the United States, for she realizes there is always more than one axis of evil out there, and indeed she spotted another that she pointed out to HCFR in 2011, not forgetting to add her concern for her native shores:

“In Lebanon, we have witnessed the conquest of the country by the Iran-Syria-Hezbollah axis. The U.S. should never have been supporting a government with Hezbollah. Now, with Hezbollah in control, what is the justification for continued U.S. taxpayer investment? In Egypt and elsewhere, successive U.S. administrations failed to move beyond the status quo and prepare for the future. We should not associate the protest in Jordan and Bahrain with events transpiring in Tripoli, Cairo and Beirut. But there is one constant. We have failed to effectively use our resources to help build strong, accountable institutions that protect basic human rights. … In our hemisphere, the U.S. approach is one of misplaced priorities. The Havana tyranny has again ramped up its assault against a democracy movement in Cuba, detaining dozens of peaceful protesters, beating mourning mother, Reina Luisa Tamayo, and this weekend sending its shameless thugs after the Ladies in White. Yet, the administration has repeatedly eased regulations on the Castro regime.”

Right now, prominent and predominant in her worries is the need for a vigorous push for regime change in Iran. She has sponsored the Iran Freedom Support Act, which also authorizes the president ““to provide financial and political assistance to foreign and domestic individuals, organizations, and entities that support democracy and the promotion of democracy in Iran.”

She has also sponsored House resolution 750, the “Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act,” proving that you can wrap two enemies of Israel – I mean the US—in one House bill.

She has been complaining that what is really necessary, a truly “tough approach toward Iran has yet to be fully tried,” apparently dissatisfied with the First Jewish President’s efforts in this direction.

Perhaps Obama has not disappointed her as much as he has confirmed her earlier suspicions through his ill manners. Close to the end of his first term he had still “failed to visit Israel.” Other Episcopalians like her, but on the other side of the aisle, tried to excuse Obama, pointing out defensively that Nixon and GW Bush had also visited Israel only in their second terms, while Reagan, that enduring republican icon himself, never did! As an unofficial but respected bookkeeper among many Episcopalians who keep track of the American presidents’ bending over and the number of Israeli intromissions, she is the first one to make clear that the venue where the act takes place has as much symbolic significance as the submission ritual itself.

Preoccupied with prioritizing and judiciously apportioning the limited capacity of the US for military involvement on the side of the “oppressed” around the globe, she elucidated why attacking Libya was paramount for the interests of the American people, whose national security was threatened by Libya:

“The American people expect the President, as our Commander in Chief, to determine when U.S. national security interests are at risk and what he is prepared to command the men and women of our Armed Forces to undertake in order to protect and defend them. Deferring to the United Nations and calling on our military personnel to enforce the ‘writ of the international community’ sets a dangerous precedent.

In assessing U.S. security interests and objectives, the President must also keep in mind Qaddafi’s attacks on Western targets resulting in the deaths of Americans in the 1980s.”

As then, now again, the congresswoman has the American people’s interests at heart, when she draws attention to the danger posed by Iran. In supporting the Iranian exile group MEK, and asking that they be taken off the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations, she set aside her Episcopalian faith, and supported secularism, reasoning that MEK was a leading group able to establish a “secular government in Iran.”

This almost makes one impatient to be finished with Syria and Iran so that Ross-Lehtinen could then turn her attention to Israel, in search of a similar “leading group” that could turn it into a secular state.

As for the American people, dragged into wars not of necessity, but of choice, and solely to the benefit of a foreign state, the nation whose blood and treasure are spent against their best interests, the congresswoman seems as callously contemptuous of them as she is of the people of her native Cuba.

A violation of allegiance to one’s state, a betrayal of oath, trust and confidence are what constitutes treason by the dictionary definition. Patriotism means to stand up for one’s country not for a foreign state.

    notice how they tend to be obese?

    Hardly a oil painting that’s for sure.

    this is what the ross-lehtinen sow is promoting:

    “A 42-year-old woman in Gaza is in critical condition after being shot on Wednesday by Israeli troops near the border, in an apparrently unprovoked shooting.

    “She was shot by several bullets, one of which hit her in the chest,” said Ashraf al-Qudra, spokesman for the Hamas-run ministry of health. “She is in critical condition.”

    Little cross border attacks like this are all too common, but rarely are Israeli soldiers punished.

    Israel established an unofficial security “buffer zone” – the exact dimensions of which are not known – and it is frequently enforced with live fire. Up to 34 such shootings occurred in June and 10 in July, according to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), killing 11 people over both months.”

    israel needs to be dismantled and the israelis thoroughly investigated for israeli crimes, including the sayanim they operate around the world.

      Well the only way that’s ever going to happen is if our respective regimes (US and UK) are dismantled first, cos lets face it, it is their will and not the will of the electorate to perpetuate this evil – ‘killing in the name of security’, and the m.s. media who slavishly report propaganda are complicit in it too – Happy to just take the fame & money and damn the truth.

      Many things must change before the world regains some semblance of sanity and it must begin with the removal of the sociopaths that have convinced everyone that they would make good leaders and that the system serves the people. We see their lies, prejudice and hypocrisy with every word they utter.

      What can cause a human to act in such a treasonous way, to sell out humanity for the benefit of a chosen few? – is it just greed for money and fame? tribalism? abuse? mind control? bribery? blackmail? brainwashing from an early age?

      Some say that it is power that corrupts but power is purely a subjective perception. People like this think that they are powerful through their dominance and control over others through military, propaganda and financial means; whilst those with wisdom understand that such power is ever shifting and those that invest in sound relations with others, built on compassion, trust and mutual benefit not fear, can build systems that endure and therein lies true power.

      It is ultimately their perception of their power that causes people to become corrupt. It seems so counter-intuitive then for the jewish faith to inculcate in jewish people that they are one of the ‘chosen’ tribe destined to rule over humanity. This along with all the other stuff about treatment of goyim is bound to create power hungry, nut-job jews (and the evidence for this is overwhelming), that don’t understand the great responsibilities involved in wielding power and would simply use their perceived power to control others for the illusory benefit of themselves and their tribe and the detriment of all else – not realising the error of their ways. Because of the inter-connectness of ALL things, no actions are free of consequence and a time of reckoning fast approaches.

      Roll on the Evolution of the Species!

        “whilst those with wisdom understand that such power is ever shifting and those that invest in sound relations with others, built on compassion, trust and mutual benefit not fear, can build systems that endure and therein lies true power.”

        but that would also involve acceptance of others as equals and one would have to share “power”. both anathema to the tribals, and also their far right, power hungry, hierarchical thinking, non-jewish predecessors and current allies/somewhat rivals. capitalist “me first” thinking would have to be switched back over to communal “us together” thinking.

        nicely written Somoe. and a good question:

        is it just greed for money and fame? tribalism? abuse? mind control? bribery? blackmail? brainwashing from an early age?

        four suggested further categories of motive

        i cannot give a comprehensive answer so let me attempt to add further nuance to the question.

        firstly, some quite important components are missing from your brief list. this is not a criticism, as your list was not claimed to be complete – it was there merely to flesh out that searing question: why do they do it? nevertheless i would suggest it would be useful to bring in four additional categories of motive for consideration. doubtless there are others.

        (1) chutzpah. as a motive this is a bit like because it is there. we do it because it can be done and because we have the balls to attempt it. there is often in this an inbuilt sense of superiority related to the exceptionalism which is a constituent of the sense of chosen-ness

        (2) inordinate or perverted sexual appetites. whilst most of us are sexual creatures, the relatively innocent probably have little understanding of the degree to which unruly, abnormal or criminal sex drives create a powerful motive for ‘selling out’. this lack of insight is not just because of innocence. these things are covered up very effectively, so there is a paucity of evidence, which conspires with an unwillingness to even think about such things.

        (3) the lust for power over others. if i may take the liberty of being personal for a moment, i think this important group of motives (the lust-for-power complex) is particularly difficult for aspergers to understand, because one of the symptoms of aspergers, at least of what i subjectively call aspergers, is the absence of desire to control others, indeed, the presence of a distinct discomfort with the very idea.

        (4) dedication to evil. i will not comment further on this motive and the different circumstances in which it may arise, but i do think it is a factor in some cases, and by no means peripheral to the whole problematic.

        secondly let us not merely focus on the tribe. without the assistance of a willing army of shabes goyim there could be no successful takeover of power by a tiny minority, such as we have seen in the worlds of banking, showbiz and media, politics and organised crime. the motivational structure of tribals and shabes goyim may well be somewhat different.

        the complexity of our list of motives suggests a plurality of causation here. for this reason, in order to obtain greater precision the words greed for money and fame i should maybe replace with greed for money or hunger for fame. the two motivations may go together, but also occur separately. (although he was not a tribal, at least to my knowledge, a good example of the separation is Oscar Wilde who was undoubtedly driven by a desire for fame, or even notoriety, but apart from his love of fine things, seemed free of money-greed as such, and would surely have found that motivation banal and rather disgusting)

        again, my phrase plurality of causation is over-simplistic. the different factors can work together, acquiring the force of synergy. an obvious example is that perverted and/or illegal sexual expression easily feeds into blackmail.

        people of action are often impatient with the attempt to understand. but my personal bias is to think careful diagnosis crucial to choice of therapies.

        progress in diagnosis requires a useful and comprehensive list of motivations, coupled with careful and dispassionate case studies of known individuals. perhaps this work has already been done, but if it has the results are either not widely available or insufficiently studied. for deLiberation Ariadna has made a good start with the truly dreadful ‘person’ (or venomous cockroach in human form) who is the subject of this post.

        i had intended to discuss examples, but i feel i should just make this comment as it is, and await corrections or further elaboration from others – the dryness of this intellectual analysis has exhausted me for the present, though case studies are undoubtedy the ‘juicy bit’ of the enterprise, and more satisfying to undertake.

    Great expose, Ariadna! She is an utterly abysmal, soulless specimen of humanity!
    Love the opener:
    ‘A Face to Launch 1,000 Ships? No, not Helen but Ileana, not of Troy, but of the Tribe, and not ships but missiles.’
    – perfect!

      Thank you, Somoe. Maybe Bricmont has something there on the independent nations changing the world order.

    ‘A face to launch a thousand ships” initiated this:

    December 24, 2012 “Haaretz” – -WASHINGTON – Just over half of the U.S. House of Representatives called on President Obama to shut down the PLO office in Washington as punishment for its ascension in United Nations status.

    “One important way of expressing U.S. disapproval would be to send the message that such actions are not cost-free and that, at a minimum, they result in setbacks to U.S.-Palestinian relations,” said the letter sent Dec. 21

    “We can do this by closing the PLO office in Washington, D.C. We can also call our Consul-General in Jerusalem home for consultations,” the letter said.

    The letter was initiated by Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), Ed Royce (R-Calif.), respectively the outgoing and incoming chairs, and Reps. Howard Berman (D-Calif.) and Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), respectively the outgoing and incoming ranking Democrats.
