Far Right Match Made In a Chabad Lubavitch Synagogue – Can We Reconsider This Wall Idea?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President-elect of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro met in Rio de Janeiro on Friday, December 28, 2018 where they attended a ceremony at the Kehilat Yaacov Synagogue. The Kehilat Yaacov Synagogue is a Chabad Lubavitch synagogue of which there are 33 Chabad Lubavitcher synagogues in Brazil. In the United States, if Alan Dershowitz could get his way, there would be a Chabad Lubavitch center in every university in America.

Netanyahu in Brazil pushes Honduras on Jerusalem embassy move
Prime minister holds three-way talks with Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez and US top diplomat Mike Pompeo to discuss opening embassies in Israeli capital and Tegucigalpa
January 2, 2018 • by TOI Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lobbied Honduras’s president on opening an embassy in Jerusalem and expanding bilateral ties as the two met in Brazil Tuesday.
The two leaders met on the sidelines of the inauguration of Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro in Brasilia, where Netanyahu also held meetings with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and others.
At a meeting attended by Netanyahu, Pompeo and Honduras President Juan Orlando Hernandez, the three “discussed advancing the opening of the two embassies, in Jerusalem and Honduras,” according to a statement from Netanyahu’s office.
Netanyahu also met separately with Hernandez, though no information was issued about that meeting.
Tegucigalpa has reportedly expressed interest in moving the country’s embassy to Jerusalem in exchange for Israel opening an embassy in Honduras and technology sharing.
There were no immediate comments from the US State Department or Hernandez’s office.
According to the Prime Minister’s Office, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales and Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife Sara Netanyahu had spoken with Hernandez by phone while she visited Guatemala last month.

As the fifth most populated country in the world with Brazil having a tech sector all of its own and military fire power ranking 14th among 136 countries ranked, it sort of looks like this is the end of the BRIC nations. It is significant that Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu visited Brazil before Bolsonaro’s official inauguration before he was sworn into office January 1, 2019. It looks as though Brazil is going to be selling a lot more halal meat to Israel in exchange for some of that high tech stuff for military applications Israel manufacturers and dominates. And as far as Belgium is concerned, it looks as though there will no longer be any halal meat served in that European country.
Israel has been and will continue supplying Brazil with military type technology considering there are rumors a war is being arranged for countries in South America (note: Breitbart news source “born in America and conceived in Israel”) as some have been observing. Even the British are anticipating action in the Caribbean post Brexit. This continued deepening relationship between Israel and Brazil might threaten Brazilian halal meat sales to Islamic countries when these countries discover just how close Israel and Brazil are becoming in trade.
Brazil risks Middle East trade with Israel embassy move
November 19, 2018 • by Ana Mano and Jake Spring
SAO PAULO/BRASILIA (Reuters) – A proposal by Brazil’s next president to relocate its embassy in Israel, following U.S. President Donald Trump’s lead, may set off a diplomatic storm in the Muslim world, threatening a key market for the world’s largest meat companies.
Brazil is by far the world’s largest exporter of halal meat, which complies with Muslim dietary rules. President-elect Jair Bolsonaro’s plans to move Brazil’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, strengthening relations with Israel, has already upset Egypt and could soon stir trouble with other Islamic nations.
“The reaction will be given not only as an individual country but on behalf of the whole Muslim world,” a Turkish diplomatic source told Reuters on condition of anonymity. “We are expecting Brazil to act with reason and not confront the Muslim world.”
Brazil exports $16 billion annually to the Middle East and Turkey, with just 3 percent going to Israel, according to government statistics.
More than a quarter of Brazil’s exports to the region are meat. Both Brazil’s JBS SA (JBSS3.SA), the world’s top beef producer, and BRF SA (BRFS3.SA), the No. 1 poultry exporter, have bet big on the growing demand for halal meat.
Brazil exports over $5 billion of halal meat per year, more than twice its nearest rivals, Australia and India, according to Salaam Gateway, a partnership between the Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre and Thomson Reuters.

In Israel, it is not “Marxist garbage” being taught that Brazil’s President Bolsonaro wants removed from Brazil’s universities, but the Torah. It is not “mandatory Talmud study,” but Torah, the book that “supposedly does not exist and supposedly plays no part in the day to day activities, thoughts, and behaviors of Jews and of the Jewish state of Israel.
Bolsonaro Vows to ‘Tackle the Marxist Garbage’ in Brazil’s Schools
By Ivan Pentchoukov • January 2, 2019
In a pair of his first policy-oriented messages as the president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro said his administration will target the “Marxist garbage” within his country’s education system.
Bolsonaro issued the messages one day after declaring in his inaugural speech that his election victory liberated Brazil from “socialism and political correctness.”
“One of our strategies to get Brazil to climb from the lowest spots of the educational rankings is to tackle the Marxist garbage in our schools head-on,” Bolsonaro wrote on Twitter. “We shall succeed in forming citizens and not political militants.”
In a follow-up message, he wrote that his administration will focus on the opposite of the previous government, “which purposely invested in the formation of slave minds of the ideas of socialist domination.”
Brazil’s education system is extensively permeated with Marxist influence. Textbooks feature attacks on capitalism and praise of socialism.
Bolsonaro’s decision to tackle the system likely isn’t accidental. The international communist movement selected Brazil’s education system as the primary target for infiltrating the nation, according to Jeff Nyquist, an author who has interviewed experts on the issue in Brazil and the United States.
“It’s even deeper than in the United States and that’s saying a lot,” Nyquist said, referring to the socialist penetration of Brazil’s education system. “Some of the same programs that the far-left has introduced into the U.S. education system, they’ve introduced in Brazil. They went for education first there.”

As Israel becomes a regional power developing the technology that will be used to power up China’s Belt & Road Initiative, the United States will be relegated to less and less of a role in the world. Japan acknowledging America’s lessening status in the world is gearing up in a huge way to defend their global economic interests. Japan’s military is spending more than a third of what America currently spends on its own military budget and will have the ability to project its military anywhere in the world. Japan’s aircraft carrier is now capable of launching its newly acquired Lockheed Martin F35 fighters.
These “cosy ties” between Israel and Brazil may have dissipated a bit while Brazil has been under political control of the left. Now that Bolsonaro has come to power these ties will become even cozier as Israel has been signing some serious contracts with Brazil for military weapon systems. Even before Bolsonaro has come to power in Brazil, Israel and Brazil’s Industrial trade and R&D has been going on for a long time. Elbit Systems Ltd. is an Israel-based international defense electronics company operating in the areas of aerospace, land and naval systems, command, control, communications, computers, intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR), unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), advanced electro-optics, electro-optic space systems, electronic warfare suites, signal intelligence (SIGINT) systems, data links and communications systems and radios.
Elbit Systems Inc. along with Rockwell Collins manufacturers the $400,000 helmet used by pilots flying Lockheed Martin’s F35. Back in 2001, Israel’s Elbit Systems Inc. bought Brazil’s AEL Sistems obtaining AEL’s avionics technology that at the time had innovative features such as “wide area display” (WAD), which is a panoramic touchscreen display which was similar to Lockheed Martin’s F35 panoramic cockpit display. Brazil’s Navy Aeronautical Directorate (DAerM), signed an offset agreement on behalf of the Brazilian Navy with M7 Aerospace (US aerospace company located in San Antonio, Texas) and Israel’s Elbit Systems Inc. on 12 September 2018 worth $110 million. With such Israel support is it any wonder Brazil has turned hard right?
Israel’s biggest fear with the The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement is that its international weapons sales contracts will be compromised. The BDS movement works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.
In 2014, the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul cancelled a major collaboration deal with the Israeli military company Elbit Systems Inc. in the wake of protests over the Elbit’s role in oppression of Palestinians. Drones supplied by Elbit Systems were tested during Israel’s attack on Gaza that killed more than 2,100 Palestinians. The global banking giant HSBC is invested with Elbit Systems Inc. On January 2, 2019 HSBC’s divestment from Israel’s Elbit Systems was said to be from “pressure from the BDS movement“, however, the company stated that the reason was “due to Elbit’s production of cluster bombs. Since when is HSBC concerned about weapons used as long as it profits off its investments?
This isn’t the first time HSBC has been criticized for investments in companies that supply Israel with munitions and weapons. Some of the world’s biggest banks fund the cluster bomb trade. Even the giant British BAE Systems denied whether or not cluster bombs were being loaded on fighter jets dropping munitions on “targets” in Yemen. Israel should be right at home in Brazil as the world’s 7th largest weapons and munitions suppliers considering Brazil is a major supplier of weapons systems on the world market.

Archives reveal Israel’s ‘cosy ties’ with Brazil’s military dictatorship
November 28, 2018
Israeli Foreign Ministry documents at the Israel State Archives reveal that Israel enjoyed “cosy ties” with Brazil’s military dictatorship, which ruled from 1964 to 1985.
According to the report by +972 Magazine, the year after the coup, in June 1965, Aryeh Eshel, director of Latin American affairs at Israel’s Foreign Ministry, wrote that he hoped “the current regime in Brazil lasts”.
Based on the information available, and not subject to censorship, the report states there were “strong ties” with respect to military relations:
Brazil’s security forces used Israeli Uzi submachine guns, and the [Brazilian] National Truth Commission revealed that intelligence agents from the National Intelligence Service of Brazil (SNI) — who were primarily responsible for torture, oppression, and crimes committed by the regime — received training in Israel.
In addition, “the two countries entered into a nuclear pact for peaceful purposes”; Israeli nuclear scientists went to work in Brazil, “and even Shalhevet Freier, head of the Israeli Atomic Energy Commission, paid a visit to the country in the early 1970s”.
Please go to Middle East Monitor to read the entire article.
According to a report prepared by the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network titled “Israel’s Worldwide Role in Repression” published in 2012: “Israel has sold its signature firearms, the Uzi submachine gun and the Galil rifle, in countries throughout the region, arming Guatemalan death squads, Nicaraguan Contras, Pinochet’s Chile, and the military junta in Argentina against the population and their movements”.
Furthermore in Brazil from the same report, the Israeli government and its corporations play a significant role in Brazil’s domestic policing, crowd control, surveillance systems, military arms, prisons and militarized borders. The police training and arming is part of Brazil’s anti-favela campaign and other domestic repression. Brazil has contracted with Israel to provide an advanced surveillance system in its state prison system.
What is the United States under President Donald Trump attempting to do between the border of the United States and Mexico? Something about building a wall isn’t it? How many Israeli firms will be contracted with in building this wall – if it is funded – between the United States and Mexico? It seems as though Israeli high tech firms have already been at the border between the United States and Mexico. The usual US government agencies are involved.
The Department of Homeland Security and ICE. (If readers would like to know more on the “formation” and not the “creation” of which these corporations like Homeland Security and ICE and how they were all uniformly re-defined and empowered, please read: Agencies – A Clarification for Boneheads) These agencies have contracted with Israel’s American subsidiary Elbit Systems Inc. We think Americans should reconsider building a wall between America and Mexico or it will be like transplanting Gaza Strip to America’s southern border.
From Open Democracy…
Consider the IDF brigadier general’s presence in El Paso two years ago an omen. After all, in February 2014, Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agency in charge of policing our borders, contracted with Israel’s giant private military manufacturer Elbit Systems to build a “virtual wall,” a technological barrier set back from the actual international divide in the Arizona desert. That company, whose US-traded stock shot up by 6% during Israel’s massive military operation against Gaza in the summer of 2014, will bring the same databank of technology used in Israel’s borderlands–Gaza and the West Bank–to Southern Arizona through its subsidiary Elbit Systems of America.
