Since sexual predation doesn’t only happen with women, it vitally important to look at sexual predation of children , where there’s no possibility of mutual consent involved in the actions of the predator.
Pedo-Gate, also known as Pizza-Gate, refers to the exposure of a massive pedophilia ring that is predominantly focused in Washington D.C., but also links to many other locations around the world.
The public exposure of the existence of this covert perverted activity is not due to the journalistic diligence on the part of the Main Stream Media (MSM), but as a result of widespread coverage by the Alternative Media via the Internet. The MSM, which is owned and controlled by left leaning liberals, has clearly been directed to avoid any discussion of the existence of pedophilia rings, and to label any discussion by the Alt Media as Fake News.
What is Pedophilia?
“Pedophilia or paedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children. Although girls typically begin the process of puberty at age 10 or 11, and boys at age 11 or 12, criteria for pedophilia extend the cut-off point for prepubescence to age 13.
A person who is diagnosed with pedophilia must be at least 16 years old, but adolescents must be at least five years older than the prepubescent child for the attraction to be diagnosed as pedophilia.
Pedophilia is termed pedophilic disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), and the manual defines it as a paraphilia involving intense and recurrent sexual urges towards and fantasies about prepubescent children that have either been acted upon or which cause the person with the attraction distress or interpersonal difficulty.
In popular usage, the word pedophilia is often applied to any sexual interest in children or the act of child sexual abuse. This use conflates the sexual attraction to prepubescent children with the act of child sexual abuse, and fails to distinguish between attraction to prepubescent and pubescent or post-pubescent minors. Researchers recommend that these imprecise uses be avoided because although people who commit child sexual abuse sometimes exhibit the disorder, child sexual abuse offenders are not pedophiles unless they have a primary or exclusive sexual interest in prepubescent children, and the literature indicates the existence of pedophiles who do not molest children.
Development and sexual orientation
Pedophilia emerges before or during puberty, and is stable over time. It is primarily self-discovered, not chosen. For these reasons, pedophilia has been described as a disorder of sexual preference, phenomenologically similar to a heterosexual or homosexual sexual orientation. These observations, however, do not exclude pedophilia from the group of mental disorders because pedophilic acts cause harm, and pedophiles can sometimes be helped by mental health professionals to refrain from acting on their impulses which cause harm to children.
In response to misinterpretations that the American Psychiatric Association considers pedophilia a sexual orientation because of wording in its printed DSM-5 manual, which distinguishes between paraphilia and what it calls “paraphilic disorder”, subsequently forming a division of “pedophilia” and “pedophilic disorder”, the association commented: “[S]exual orientation’ is not a term used in the diagnostic criteria for pedophilic disorder and its use in the DSM-5 text discussion is an error and should read ‘sexual interest.” They added, “In fact, APA considers pedophilic disorder a ‘paraphilia,’ not a ‘sexual orientation.’ This error will be corrected in the electronic version of DSM-5 and the next printing of the manual.”
They said they strongly support efforts to criminally prosecute those who sexually abuse and exploit children and adolescents, and “also support continued efforts to develop treatments for those with pedophilic disorder with the goal of preventing future acts of abuse.”
Comorbidity and personality traits
Studies of pedophilia in child sex offenders often report that it co-occurs with other psychopathologies, such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and personality problems.
Impaired self-concept and interpersonal functioning were reported in a sample of child sex offenders who met the diagnostic criteria for pedophilia by Cohen et al. (2002), which the authors suggested could contribute to motivation for pedophilic acts. The pedophilic offenders in the study had elevated psychopathy and cognitive distortions compared to healthy community controls. This was interpreted as underlying their failure to inhibit criminal behavior.
A review of qualitative research studies published between 1982 and 2001 concluded that child sexual abusers use cognitive distortions to meet personal needs, justifying abuse by making excuses, redefining their actions as love and mutuality, and exploiting the power imbalance inherent in all adult–child relationships. Other cognitive distortions include the idea of “children as sexual beings”, uncontrollability of sexual behavior, and “sexual entitlement-bias”.
Consumption of child pornography is a more reliable indicator of pedophilia than molesting a child, although some non-pedophiles also view child pornography. Child pornography may be used for a variety of purposes, ranging from private sexual gratification or trading with other collectors, to preparing children for sexual abuse as part of the child grooming process.
Warning Banner for Operation Protect Our Children
Pedophilic viewers of child pornography are often obsessive about collecting, organizing, categorizing, and labeling their child pornography collection according to age, gender, sex act and fantasy. According to FBI agent Ken Lanning, “collecting” pornography does not mean that they merely view pornography, but that they save it, and “it comes to define, fuel, and validate their most cherished sexual fantasies”. Lanning states that the collection is the single best indicator of what the offender wants to do, but not necessarily of what has or will be done. Researchers Taylor and Quayle reported that pedophilic collectors of child pornography are often involved in anonymous internet communities dedicated to extending their collections.
Although what causes pedophilia is not yet definitively known, researchers began reporting a series of findings linking pedophilia with brain structure and function, beginning in 2002.
Testing individuals from a variety of referral sources inside and outside the criminal justice system as well as controls, these studies found associations between pedophilia and lower IQs, poorer scores on memory tests, greater rates of non-right-handedness, greater rates of school grade failure over and above the IQ differences, lesser physical height, greater probability of having suffered childhood head injuries resulting in unconsciousness, and several differences in MRI-detected brain structures.
They report that their findings suggest that there are one or more neurological characteristics present at birth that cause or increase the likelihood of being pedophilic. Some studies have found that pedophiles are less cognitively impaired than non-pedophilic child molesters.
A 2011 study reported that pedophilic child molesters had deficits in response inhibition, but no deficits in memory or cognitive flexibility. Evidence of familial transmittability “suggests, but does not prove that genetic factors are responsible” for the development of pedophilia. A 2015 study indicated that pedophilic offenders have a normal IQ.
Another study, using structural MRI, indicated that male pedophiles have a lower volume of white matter than a control group. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has indicated that child molesters diagnosed with pedophilia have reduced activation of the hypothalamus as compared with non-pedophilic persons when viewing sexually arousing pictures of adults. A 2008 functional neuroimaging study notes that central processing of sexual stimuli in heterosexual “paedophile forensic inpatients” may be altered by a disturbance in the prefrontal networks, which “may be associated with stimulus-controlled behaviours, such as sexual compulsive behaviours”. The findings may also suggest “a dysfunction at the cognitive stage of sexual arousal processing”.
Blanchard, Cantor, and Robichaud (2006) reviewed the research that attempted to identify hormonal aspects of pedophiles. They concluded that there is some evidence that pedophilic men have less testosterone than controls.
While not causes of pedophilia themselves, childhood abuse by adults or comorbid psychiatric illnesses—such as personality disorders and substance abuse—are risk factors for acting on pedophilic urges.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5th edition (DSM-5) has a significantly larger diagnostic features section for pedophilia than the previous DSM version, the DSM-IV-TR, and states, “The diagnostic criteria for pedophilic disorder are intended to apply both to individuals who freely disclose this paraphilia and to individuals who deny any sexual attraction to prepubertal children (generally age 13 years or younger), despite substantial objective evidence to the contrary.”
Like the DSM-IV-TR, the manual outlines specific criteria for use in the diagnosis of this disorder. These include the presence of sexually arousing fantasies, behaviors or urges that involve some kind of sexual activity with a prepubescent child (with the diagnostic criteria for the disorder extending the cut-off point for prepubescence to age 13) for six months or more, or that the subject has acted on these urges or suffers from distress as a result of having these feelings. The criteria also indicate that the subject should be 16 or older and that the child or children they fantasize about are at least five years younger than them, though ongoing sexual relationships between a 12- to 13-year-old and a late adolescent are advised to be excluded. A diagnosis is further specified by the sex of the children the person is attracted to, if the impulses or acts are limited to incest, and if the attraction is “exclusive” or “nonexclusive”.
Exclusive pedophiles are sometimes referred to as true pedophiles. They are sexually attracted to prepubescent children, and only prepubescent children. Showing no erotic interest in adults, they can only become sexually aroused while fantasizing about or being in the presence of prepubescent children, or both.
Non-exclusive offenders—or “non-exclusive pedophiles”—may at times be referred to as non-pedophilic offenders, but the two terms are not always synonymous. Non-exclusive offenders are sexually attracted to both children and adults, and can be sexually aroused by both, though a sexual preference for one over the other in this case may also exist. If the attraction is a sexual preference for prepubescent children, such offenders are considered pedophiles in the same vein as exclusive offenders.
The DSM diagnostic criteria does not require actual sexual activity with a prepubescent youth. The diagnosis can therefore be made based on the presence of fantasies or sexual urges even if they have never been acted upon. On the other hand, a person who acts upon these urges yet experiences no distress about their fantasies or urges can also qualify for the diagnosis. Acting on sexual urges is not limited to overt sex acts for purposes of this diagnosis, and can sometimes include indecent exposure, voyeuristic or frotteuristic (rubbing) behaviors, or masturbating to child pornography. Often, these behaviors need to be considered in-context with an element of clinical judgment before a diagnosis is made. Likewise, when the patient is in late adolescence, the age difference is not specified in hard numbers and instead requires careful consideration of the situation.”(1)
The History of Pedophilia
In order to understand the roots of pedophilia, and to understand why pedophilia continues to be widespread today, it’s important to examine the status of women historically.
“The brutal treatment of women, slavery in a sense, goes back to the cultures of “The Book,” the foundations of Judaism (Torah), Christianity (Bible), and Islam (Koran). Starting with Abraham (roughly 2000 B. C.), the common father of all three religions of The Book, women were demeaned into second-hand humans or even belittled into being deemed “chattel,” whose value was less than a camel, a horse, or a goat. Ultimately, women were sex slaves without rights.
Women are still oppressed throughout the world with the religious sanctions of “Church Fathers.” Recently, Pope Francis has reiterated that woman will never be allowed to become priests. There is no age limit to “marriage” in many cultures. Even the cast system of India and other Eastern customs incorporated similar ideas. The degradation of woman also runs rampant throughout the Muslim world where women have practically no human rights and are, in effect, slaves. Thus, sex slavery and torture go back to the beginning of recorded history and is not exclusive to Christians, Jews, or Muslims.
Pedophilia and sex slavery is the end result of centuries of religions and cultures that have degraded the female.
Female slavery is endemic to male dominated cultures. Ruling cultures enslave other cultures. Women are subservient to men in many cultures and after the battles or war, the theft of gold and valuables was followed by raping the women.
Once the female was degraded as being subpar to the male, being mere chattel, who was there to protect the children?
Rape, slavery, and pedophilia are considered the “spoils of war.”
The patriarchal cultures that developed since 3100 B. C. invented and promoted war.
Saint Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City
War became big business and the good priest/king was also a warrior who took as many wives and riches as he wanted. This was the patriarchal model that has metamorphosed through numerous stages to become what we know today as the corporate military industrial complex. This complex had its origins in Rome and what became the Roman Catholic Church – the oldest corporation in the world that is still the richest and most powerful force of dominance and control to this day. The Catholic Church created Canon Law to control the nations they conquered and hold control in the hands of a few men within the Church or its close proximity.”(23)
“In Greece and in the Roman Empire, the use of minors for the sexual satisfaction of adults was a tolerated and even prized costume.”(2)
Greece and Pederasty
“Pederasty is a phenomenon that existed in ancient Greece. To begin with, pederasty was a relationship that was an institutionalized part of the aristocratic, male society between an adult male,
the erastes, and a pre-adolescent boy, the eromenos. The adult male was generally over the age of
twenty-five and the boy was generally between the ages of fifteen to eighteen. Louis Crompton defined pederasty as:
At the palaestra
Youth, holding a net shopping bag filled with walnuts, a love gift, draws close to a man who reaches out to fondle him; Attic red-figure plate 530–430 BC
A relation between an older male and someone younger, usually a youth between the ages of
fourteen and twenty. The older man was called the erastes or lover. Ideally, it was his duty to be the boy’s teacher and protector and serve as a model of courage, virtue, and wisdom to his
beloved, or eromenos, whose attraction lay in his beauty, his youth, and his promise of future
moral, intellectual, and physical excellence.
The eromenos was generally expected to stop being in a passive relationship with an older male when his beard first started to develop. The men who had relationships with prepubescent boys around twelve or younger were generally looked down upon for their actions. According to Colin Spencer, this reproach was not for any legal reasons, but due to the fact that the Greeks thought the prepubescent boys did not have the mental capacity to be fully aware of what they were doing. According to Foucault it was not acceptable to have sex with those too young because:
…it arrests growth and disturbs the development of the signs of puberty.
The eromenos, however, was underage and under the authority of his paternal guardian until the age of eighteen. Due to this, pederastic relationships could only function with the support and accordance of the child’s parents, mainly that of his father. In order for this arrangement to work, the erastes had to have good standing in the community, be fairly affluent, and follow the correct procedures in conformity to the Greek ideal of sophrōsyne (moderation).
In the Dorian style pederasty, the erastes would mention that he was going to abduct the boy to
the boy’s family and friends; if the man was not considered acceptable, they would give chase and
capture the man and the boy before the relationship could take place. If, however, the man was
considered acceptable, the family would only feign chase and then meet up with the boy and his male
lover and hold a celebration before allowing the relationship to continue. The eromenos did have a say in the compact, and could refuse the suitor even before his father agreed to the courting.
Dorian style pederasty shared many things in common with Athenian pederasty. A major issue that both mutually agreed upon was that the citizen youth should not sell themselves too short or surrender their virtue in order to become prostitutes.
Warren Cup, depicting sexual intimacy between a boy and his male lover
Prostitution, for men, was allowed in Athens, but was considered a dirty trade; and, as these passages
by Aeschines confirm, it was thought a serious offense for citizens to prostitute themselves. Tutors and family members that had been accused of prostituting boys could be sentenced to death, according to Marilyn Skinner. Boys that took money in the pederastic relationships were accused of prostitution and the procedures mentioned above were waged against them.
The pederastic relationship served several very important functions in ancient societies. The most important function was that it trained the pais (child) to become a fully-functioning man in his community. This education was completed through many different methods, including practice at the gym, hunting expeditions with the erastes, philosophical conversations on morality and ethics, and training in the things of war. In Crete, for example, the affair lasted two months.
According to Daniel H. Garrison:
As Greece developed from a congeries of tribes, villages, and warlords to an urban civilization,
pederasty developed from a rite of passage to an educational institution that was at once ethical,
strongly personal, and elitist. Its emphasis on physical virtues applicable to warfare gave it an
ascetic cast, though it was driven by an erotic and therefore inherently sensuous energy…It is
not a deviant practice…It is, instead, the most intensive form of initiation a society that offers it
Although it seems that the eromenos was the only one that gained status from this type of relationship in antiquity, the erastes also benefited from such a courtship. The erastes gained kleos (report or excellence) if the child was from a rich family, was excellent at the gymnasium, or was an excellent pupil in matters of philosophy. If the young boy turned out to be an excellent man, it reflected well upon his mentor, thereby gaining the erastes honor.
Having discussed the archetype model of pederasty, does pedophilia then emulate this model? In order to answer this question it is necessary to discuss pedophilia in its most characteristic form.
Pedophilia is a concept which should first be approached in its modern context. Literally,
pedophilia comes from the Greek words, pais (child) and philia (love). This type of relationship
consists of an adult male or female with a prepubescent boy or girl.
According to Duane Dobbert in his book, Halting the Sexual Predators Amongst Us, pedophilia is defined as a “sexual activity with a prepubescent child (generally age 13 or younger).”
There are two types of pedophilia, according to Jeff Fowler, what he calls the fixation and regression paradigms. In the fixation model, offending adults are not adjusted to social norms: they “identify” with children and come across as child-like, they might possibly resort to hoarding items of the child they are attracted to, and they often rehearse the action in their head before it happens. In the regression model, the person is attracted to his/her own age group until adulthood: they are “normal” in their sexual behaviors in comparison to similarly-aged people, and they either do not realize they are attracted to children until adulthood or they repressed it early in their development due to social constraints and aversion.
Jeff Fowler also states regarding men who sexually abuse children:
In a report of men in treatment found: typically emotionally isolated individuals, lacking in self confidence, under assertive, poor at appreciating the perspective of others and ill equipped to deal with emotional distress. They characteristically denied or minimized the full extent of their sexual offending and problems. A significant proportion was found to have little empathy for their victim; strong emotional attachment to children and a range of distorted attitudes and beliefs, where they portrayed children as able to consent to and not be harmed by sexual contact with adults…The men with the most problems in the above areas tended to be the most serious offenders.
In Mohr, Turner, and Jerry’s study, there is a quote by Richard von Krafft-Ebing which explains this
There are cases in which the sexually needy subject is drawn to children not in consequence of degenerated morality or physical impotence, but rather by a morbid disposition, a psychosexual perversion, which may at present be named “paedophilia erotica.” He considered that these subjects were a small minority and that the largest number of cases of immorality with children could be reduced to conditions of “acquired mental weakness.”
Pederasty and pedophilia appear similar on the surface, in that they both incorporate adults
with children in some form of relationship- acceptable by society or not. What then, if anything, makes them two different entities? To begin with is the age of the participating members. In ancient Greece, children before the age of fourteen were guarded closely from demoralizing situations.
Pederasty took place in the open, almost always with the acceptance of the eromenos and his parents, as well as his extended family and the overall support of the community members. Although it was a relationship between two people, the erastes and the eromenos, it also had the potential to be extremely beneficial or detrimental for everyone. Pedophilia, however, takes place in seclusion and hiding. According to Jeff Fowler, fixated pedophiles “will be patient when forming relationships with children and careful that the elements of secrecy and privacy are maintained.”
There are certain groups in the modern western world that claim they are the modern equivalent of ancient pederasty. Foremost of these groups is the North American Man Boy Love Association, hereafter referred to as NAMBLA. Although there are other groups active today, this group is based in North America, has always had the largest membership count, and has also been the most publicly active in pursuing their goals. Much like how the gay movement has hearkened back to ancient Greece as the beginning of homosexuality, so too does NAMBLA and other associations like it in order to legitimize what they aim to do. NAMBLA states that the gay movement and groups like NAMBLA used to work together back in the 80’s toward sexual liberation. Groups such as NAMBLA were eventually removed from larger, umbrella homosexual rights networks, such as The International Lesbian and Gay Association, in order for the groups like ILGA to regain social acceptance.
Since this time, Gay rights groups have worked towards equality in the work place, in the military, and domestic issues such as gay marriage. NAMBLA and other groups like it, however, are still oriented solely towards the sexual liberation of children in all societies. Since pederasty is nothing like modern homosexuality, why then is the homosexual argument for hearkening back to ancient pederasty acceptable, but not the NAMBLA argument? Why is the modern “pederast” argument illegitimate? The invalidity of their argument is due to the fact that they are going about everything in the wrong way.
The NAMBLA group bases its beliefs and practices on another society’s customs and habits.
Moreover, instead of adapting these ancient customs to their own modern society, they are trying to
resurrect a previous “ideal” in which what they desire to do was socially acceptable. They seek to
abolish age of consent laws both state by state and nationally. They also reject the role and influence
that the government has in deciding the welfare of children in the private sector.
According to a question and answer section in one of their own publications:
Q: At what age should a young person be allowed to have sex?
A: Age influences the way people express their sexuality, but desire and consent are the most
important factors determining when a person is ready for sex. NAMBLA’s position is that all
people should have the right to decide for themselves when to have sex. Sexual freedom is a
basic right. All people, including young people, must be treated as individuals and not as
objects…NAMBLA opposes all “age of consent” laws because they do not recognize or respect
individual differences and needs. Gay youths especially need to be free from the embarrassment
and self-hatred that peers and family usually make them feel. They must have the right to be as
open about their love as their straight friends, without experiencing hostility. Boy lovers often act as counselors to gay boys in their times of crisis and guilt.
As one can see in this quotation, NAMBLA is rejecting modern age of consent laws completely. They say they are pederasts reborn, however, and the combination of this assertion with their rejection of societal law is paradoxical.
Pederasty worked within the structure of the ancient Greek polis, and served as an integral rite of passage for a boy to become a man. The relationship followed strict guidelines, which were set down in accordance with all involved parties. NAMBLA however is trying to break down the state’s institution by working outside of the community. This circumvention of societal rules alone distances them from the pederasty they claim.
In ancient Greece, the father or head of household was always the final arbiter of justice for his offspring and anyone else in his oikos; therefore an erastes could proceed with a pederastic relationship if he had the approval of the boy’s father.
The government, as things are now, has the final say in matters concerning children that it declares morally, physically, or ethically compromising for them. Therefore, even if one or both parents do agree to this relationship, their decision means nothing in the larger scheme of things, aside from the fact that they would be considered an accomplice to the crime and face punishment. This entire process debilitates the modern pederast’s cause and makes modern pederasty an unacceptable possibility.
Present society has no place for an educational relationship between an adult and a child that often involves a sexual component. To add to this, the space where the relationship occurred is entirely different between where the erastes courted the eromenos in ancient Greece, and their, so called, modern equivalents. The ancient Greek version was in the open with the acceptance of both community and family; the modern version takes place in secrecy, with only the “consent” of the child and the adult. Very few people, if any, know what is transpiring between the adult and child; the relationship does not benefit anyone other than those participating, or the adult alone.
In Rome, men were seen even more as the aggressive penetrator than in ancient Greece. Men were able to take wives at the age of fourteen and were considered the “giver of pleasure.” Actions such as lesbianism were considered great crimes because they denied the male the ability to grant pleasure to the woman, and because the woman was actively seeking pleasure for herself by her own means. Acceptable sexual gratification existed only for the active male in any relationship. Therefore, the problem of pederasty in society can be seen, as it forces one male citizen to take a passive role in the relationship. Roman citizen boys were not able to be penetrated because it violated Roman sexual mores.

Regardless of this aversion to the penetration of boys by the state, numerous men still attempted to court citizen boys. The Lex Scantinia was put forth by Scantinius in 149 B.C.E. in order to put limits on sexual actions that could occur in ancient Rome. One of the limitations created by this law was that of prohibiting the pursuit and love of Roman free-born boys.
This crime would be placed under the Latin legal term stuprum, also known as sexual crime and social disgrace.
So then, who does partake in a Roman pederastic relationship? If a freeborn Roman boy was allowed to partake in a pederastic relationship, he would not benefit from the action either in the eyes of the state or communally.
Boys in Rome were allowed to take wives at the age of fourteen, and they “exercised their rights without the involvement of a tutor.” Therefore, the youth in Rome were well ahead of the youth in Greece, having already married before the general age range of an eromenos in a pederastic relationship.
To take part in a relationship as a passive individual in Rome would garner an individual much shame. If a boy continued such a relationship, after breaking the law to be in it to begin with, until he was twenty-eight he would be placed into the immoral category of the cinaedi, a group of effeminate men that played the passive role in sexual activities. Additionally, the Romans grappled with the problem that pleasure was not equal in this relationship, thereby making it impossible for two citizens to partake; one would have to be in a subordinate role, and even as a soon-to-be citizen, one had too much dignity at stake to be lost.
The two slaves carrying wine jars wear typical slave clothing and an amulet against the evil eye on a necklace; the slave boy to the left carries water and towels, and the one on the right a bough and a basket of flowers
In Rome, pederasty was associated with slavery. Because young boys were legally off limits, this only left slaves and freed men as potential passive partners of a pederastic relationship. Slaves were always a viable option for a citizen man to have sex with, as long as they were his own slaves, because any shame brought down upon them was an inherent part of their subordinate nature. A
slave’s body was always entirely at his master’s disposal, and among the services expected of a slave by a master was the fulfillment and satisfaction of the owner’s sexual desires. One could also sleep with the slaves of another male citizen, provided permission was given. This contrasts greatly with the Greek model of pederasty, however, because it is not with a freeborn boy that this relationship is
Additionally, even though slaves would often gain their freedom and move into the libertini (freedman) class in Rome, they were still often subject and indebted to their former masters and obligated to continue giving them sexual favors. This obligation prolonged the amount of stuprum and pudicitia (shame) they incurred in the eyes of those living in their communities. This relationship did not benefit them as a pederastic relationship would an eromenos of ancient Greece; it simply facilitated the desires of the former master.
In Rome, sexually unacceptable behaviors went “underground” in the sense that people concealed their promiscuous behaviors that fell outside the acceptable forms of sexual behavior in a marriage.
This was not pederasty, but pedophilia being experienced between an adult man and a citizen youth. The issue of consent was not valid in this relationship, because the state did not approve, regardless if the parents did. The action brought shame down upon the child’s father, and the child did not benefit from the relation in a way a boy would in ancient Greece.
Moreover, the relationships with slaves were not pederastic either. According to Plutarch, “It is not manly or refined to be in love with slave-boys, for this love is copulation, as is the love of women.” This is because a slave was at the complete whim of his master both in mind and body, and although a slave could sporadically win his freedom, he was still bound by necessitas (duty) to his former master.
The Greek ideal of pederasty is juxtaposed in Rome to a more immoral and unethical version, in which the lover approaches his beloved in seclusion and hiding. As mentioned above in the NAMBLA section, this is a distinguishing feature of pedophilia, not pederasty.
Augustine of Hippo
Additionally, the positive attributes associated with this mode of relationship were in the process of being transferred to heterosexual relationships as women gained more status throughout the empire. St. Augustine, in his De Bono Coniugali, mentions that even sterile marriages are important due to the societas (companionship) that one gets from one’s spouse; and, this adds to the communion,
companionship, education, and child rearing seen in “normal” marriages. The praise for pederasty was declining throughout the west even before the death penalty was enacted for the condemnation of passive male-male sexual acts under the reigns of Constantius and Constans in 342 CE.
This was followed by the punishment of all male-male sexual acts via burning and castration in 533 C.E. by the emperor Justinian. Therefore, pederasty did not exist as an institution in ancient Rome, but a form of pedophilia.”(3)
A historical review wouldn’t be complete without taking a look at the relation of pedophilia to religious organizations, with their ability to validate beliefs by maintaining that they come from their God through his earthly ‘ordained’ representatives.
The Babylonian Talmud.
The Talmud represents the written record of an oral tradition of Judaism. It became the basis for many rabbinic legal codes and customs for the Jewish people. Orthodox Judaism continues to stress the importance of Talmud study as a central component of Yeshiva curriculum, in particular for those training to become Rabbis.
“To this day, the Talmud remains Judaism’s highest moral, ethical and legal authority.”(4)
“The official unabridged Soncino Edition of the Talmud published in 1935 was “Translated into English with Notes, Glossary and Indices” by such eminent Talmudic scholars as Rabbi Dr. I. Epstein, Rabbi Dr. Samuel Daiches, Rabbi Dr. Israel W. Slotki, M.A., Litt.D., The Reverend Dr. A. Cohen, M.A.’, Ph.D., Maurice Simon, M.A., and the Very Reverend The Chief Rabbi Dr. J.H. Hertz wrote the “Foreword” for the Soncino Edition of the Talmud. The Very Reverend Rabbi Hertz was at the time the Chief Rabbi of England.
The world’s leading authorities on the Talmud confirm that the official unabridged Soncino Edition of the Talmud translated into English follows the original texts with great exactness. It is almost a word-for-word translation of the original texts. In his famous classic “The History of the Talmud,” Michael Rodkinson, the leading authority on the Talmud, in collaboration with the celebrated Reverend Dr. Isaac M. Wise states:
“THE TALMUD IS ONE OF THE WONDERS OF THE WORLD. During the twenty centuries of its existence…IT SURVIVED IN ITS ENTIRETY, and not only has the power of its foes FAILED TO DESTROY EVEN A SINGLE LINE, but it has not even been able materially to weaken its influence for any length of time. IT STILL DOMINATES THE MINDS OF A WHOLE PEOPLE, WHO VENERATE ITS CONTENTS AS DIVINE TRUTH…” -(5)
“Shockingly, Judaism’s most revered authority actually endorses such sins as lying, oath-breaking, and indirect murder. And it even sanctions one of the greatest sins of all: child molestation.
Second century Rabbi Simeon ben Yohai, one of Judaism’s very greatest rabbis and a creator of Kabbalah, sanctioned pedophilia—permitting molestation of baby girls even younger than three! He proclaimed, “A proselyte who is under the age of three years and a day is permitted to marry a priest.” Subsequent rabbis refer to ben Yohai’s endorsement of pedophilia as “halakah,” or binding Jewish law. Has ben Yohai, child rape advocate, been disowned by modern Jews? Hardly. Today, in ben Yohai’s hometown of Meron, Israel, tens of thousands of orthodox and ultra-orthodox Jews gather annually for days and nights of singing and dancing in his memory.
References to pedophilia abound in the Talmud. They occupy considerable sections of Treatises Kethuboth and Yebamoth and are enthusiastically endorsed by the Talmud’s definitive legal work, Treatise Sanhedrin.
The rabbis of the Talmud are notorious for their legal hairsplitting, and quibbling debates. But they share rare agreement about their right to molest three year old girls. In contrast to many hotly debated issues, hardly a hint of dissent rises against the prevailing opinion (expressed in many clear passages) that pedophilia is not only normal but scriptural as well! It’s as if the rabbis have found an exalted truth whose majesty silences debate.
Because the Talmudic authorities who sanction pedophilia are so renowned, and because pedophilia as “halakah” is so explicitly emphasized, not even the translators of the Soncino edition of the Talmud (1936) dared insert a footnote suggesting the slightest criticism. They only comment: “Marriage, of course, was then at a far earlier age than now.”
In fact, footnote 5 to Sanhedrin 60b rejects the right of a Talmudic rabbi to disagree with ben Yohai’s endorsement of pedophilia: “How could they [the rabbis], contrary to the opinion of R. Simeon ben Yohai, which has scriptural support, forbid the marriage of the young proselyte?”
It was in Babylon after the exile under Nebuchadnezzar in 597 BC that Judaism’s leading sages probably began to indulge in pedophilia. Babylon was the staggeringly immoral capitol of the ancient world. For 1600 years, the world’s largest population of Jews flourished within it.
As an example of their evil, Babylonian priests said a man’s religious duty included regular sex with temple prostitutes. Bestiality was widely tolerated. So Babylonians hardly cared whether a rabbi married a three year old girl.
If Jews want to revere the transcendent wisdom and moral guidance of the Pharisees and their Talmud, they must accept the right of their greatest ancient sages to violate children. To this hour, no synod of Judaism has repudiated their vile practice.
What exactly did these sages say?
The Pharisees justified child rape by explaining that a boy of nine years was not a “man”. Thus they exempted him from God’s Mosaic Law: “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination” (Lev. 18:22) One passage in the Talmud gives permission for a woman who molested her young son to marry a high priest. It concludes, “All agree that the connection of a boy aged nine years and a day is a real connection; whilst that of one less than eight years is not.” Because a boy under 9 is sexually immature, he can’t “throw guilt” on the active offender, morally or legally.
A woman could molest a young boy without questions of morality even being raised: “…the intercourse of a small boy is not regarded as a sexual act.” The Talmud also says, “A male aged nine years and a day who cohabits with his deceased brother’s wife acquires her (as wife).” Clearly, the Talmud teaches that a woman is permitted to marry and have sex with a nine year old boy.
In contrast to Simeon ben Yohai’s dictum that sex with a little girl is permitted under the age of three years, the general teaching of the Talmud is that the rabbi must wait until a day after her third birthday. She could be taken in marriage simply by the act of rape.
R. Joseph said: Come and hear! A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabits with her, she becomes his. (Sanh. 55b)
A girl who is three years of age and one day may be betrothed by cohabitation. . . .(Yeb. 57b)
A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition, and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabited with her she becomes his. (Sanh. 69a, 69b, also discussed in Yeb. 60b)
It was taught: R. Simeon b. Yohai stated: A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permitted to marry a priest, for it is said, But all the women children that have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves, and Phineas (who was priest, the footnote says) surely was with them. (Yeb. 60b)
The example of Phineas, a priest, himself marrying an underage virgin of three years is considered by the Talmud as proof that such infants are “fit for cohabitation.”
The Talmud teaches that an adult woman’s molestation of a nine year old boy is “not a sexual act” and cannot “throw guilt” upon her because the little boy is not truly a “man.” But they use opposite logic to sanction rape of little girls aged three years and one day: Such infants they count as “women,” sexually mature and fully responsible to comply with the requirements of marriage.
The Talmud footnotes 3 and 4 to Sanhedrin 55a clearly tell us when the rabbis considered a boy and girl sexually mature and thus ready for marriage. “At nine years a male attains sexual matureness… The sexual matureness of woman is reached at the age of three.”
The Pharisees were hardly ignorant of the trauma felt by molested children. To complicate redress, the Talmud says a rape victim must wait until she was of age before there would be any possibility of restitution. She must prove that she lived and would live as a devoted Jewess, and she must protest the loss of her virginity on the very hour she comes of age. “As soon as she was of age one hour and did not protest she cannot protest any more.”
The Talmud defends these strict measures as necessary to forestall the possibility of a Gentile child bride rebelling against Judaism and spending the damages awarded to her as a heathen – an unthinkable blasphemy! But the rights of the little girl were really of no great consequence, for, “When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing, for when the girl is less than this (three years and a day) it is as if one put the finger into the eye.” The footnote says that as “tears come to the eye again and again, so does virginity come back to the little girl under three years.”
In most cases, the Talmud affirms the innocence of male and female victims of pedophilia. Defenders of the Talmud claim this proves the Talmud’s amazing moral advancement and benevolence toward children; they say it contrasts favorably with “primitive” societies where the child would have been stoned along with the adult perpetrator.
Actually, the rabbis, from self-protection, were intent on proving the innocence of both parties involved in pedophilia: the child, but more importantly, the pedophile. They stripped a little boy of his right to “throw guilt” on his assailant and demanded complicity in sex from a little girl. By thus providing no significant moral or legal recourse for the child, the Talmud clearly reveals whose side it is on: the raping rabbi.
Child rape was practiced in the highest circles of Judaism. This is illustrated from Yeb. 60b:
There was a certain town in the land of Israel the legitimacy of whose inhabitants was disputed, and Rabbi sent R. Romanos who conducted an inquiry and found in it the daughter of a proselyte who was under the age of three years and one day, and Rabbi declared her eligible to live with a priest.
The footnote says that she was “married to a priest” and the rabbi simply permitted her to live with her husband, thus upholding “halakah” as well as the dictum of Simeon ben Yohai, “A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permitted to marry a priest.”
These child brides were expected to submit willingly to sex. Yeb. 12b confirms that under eleven years and one day a little girl is not permitted to use a contraceptive but “must carry on her marital intercourse in the usual manner.”
In Sanhedrin 76b a blessing is given to the man who marries off his children before they reach the age of puberty, with a contrasting curse on anyone who waits longer. In fact, failure to have married off one’s daughter by the time she is 12-1/2, the Talmud says, is as bad as one who “returns a lost article to a Cuthean” (Gentile) – a deed for which “the Lord will not spare him.” This passage says: “… it is meritorious to marry off one’s children whilst minors.”
The mind reels at the damage to the untold numbers of girls who were sexually abused within Judaism during the heyday of pedophilia. Such child abuse, definitely practiced in the second century, continued, at least in Babylon, for another 900 years.
The rabbis endorsing child sex undoubtedly practiced what they preached. Yet to this hour, their words are revered. Simeon ben Yohai is honored by Orthodox Jews as one of the very greatest sages and spiritual lights the world has ever known. A member of the earliest “Tannaim,” rabbis most influential in creating the Talmud, he carries more authority to observant Jews than Moses.
Today, the Talmud’s outspoken pedophiles and child-rape advocates would doubtlessly spend hard time in prison for child molestation. Yet here is what the eminent Jewish scholar, Dagobert Runes (who is fully aware of all these passages), says about such “dirty old men” and their perverted teachings:
There is no truth whatever in Christian and other strictures against the Pharisees, who represented the finest traditions of their people and of human morals.“(4)
The Bris Ceremony
A mohel performing oral suction during the circumcision ritual
“The brit milah (Hebrew: בְּרִית מִילָה, pronounced [bʁit miˈla]; Ashkenazi pronunciation: [bʁis ˈmilə], “covenant of circumcision”; Yiddish pronunciation: bris [bʀɪs]) is a Jewish religious male circumcision ceremony performed by a mohel (“circumciser”) on the eighth day of a male infant’s life.
A mohel is a Jew trained in the practice of brit milah, the “covenant of circumcision.” According to traditional Jewish law, in the absence of a grown free Jewish male expert, a woman, a slave, or a child, who has the required skills, is also authorized to perform the circumcision, provided that she or he is Jewish.
The Talmud explicitly instructs that a boy must not be circumcised if he had two brothers who died due to complications arising from their circumcisions.
Most prominent acharonim rule that the mitzvah of brit milah lies in the pain it causes, and anesthetic, sedation, or ointment should generally not be used. However, it is traditionally common to feed the infant a drop of wine or other sweet liquid to soothe him.
Regarding an adult circumcision, pain is ideal, but not mandatory. In a letter-to-the-editor published in The New York Times on January 3, 1998, Rabbi Moshe David Tendler disagrees with the above and writes, “It is a biblical prohibition to cause anyone unnecessary pain”. Rabbi Tendler recommends the use of an analgesic cream.
The ancient method of performing metzitzah—metzitzah b’peh, or oral suction—has become controversial. The process has the mohel place his mouth directly on the circumcision wound to draw blood away from the cut. The majority of Jewish circumcision ceremonies do not use metzitzah b’peh, but some Haredi Jews use it. It has been documented that the practice poses a serious risk of spreading herpes to the infant. Proponents maintain that there is no conclusive evidence that links herpes to Metzitza, and that attempts to limit this practice infringe on religious freedom.
A brit milah is more than circumcision, it is a sacred ritual in Judaism, as distinguished from its non-ritual requirement in Islam. One ramification is that the brit is not considered complete unless a drop of blood is actually drawn. The standard medical methods of circumcision through constriction do not meet the requirements of the halakhah for brit milah, because they cause hemostasis, i.e., they stop the flow of blood.”(6)
The video below demonstrates this barbaric abusive act:
“Roman Imperialism was handed over to the Roman Catholic Church and merged terrestrial power with ecclesiastical power – earthly and heavenly power. Thus, the immoral debauchery that was the failing Roman Empire was handed over to a supposedly “moral” organization that was based upon teachings of love and compassion. What could go wrong?
The failing Roman Empire co-opted the “Christian” church in Rome due to the desire to have the renewed sources of youth and liveliness that the Empire had been drained of through continuous war and the Christians seemed to have in abundance. Love and compassion sounded a bit better than universal Roman dominance and slavery.The early church morals soon faded as terrestrial powers, through the Seven Deadly Sins, corrupted the ever-growing Christian “Empire.”
When Constantine declared Rome to be Christian and moved to the Eastern Roman Kingdom, he again ruled the known world with earthly and heavenly power. But Christian morality didn’t get in the way of massacring thousands in the name of the new Roman Christian Empire, later known as the Holy Roman Empire.
At different times in history, the Pope of the Roman Catholics was also the greatest warrior of his time. The Pope’s wearing armor and war attire was normal in the long history of the oldest corporation in the world.
The continuation of Roman slavery became “conversion” to the Pope or death to every culture who got in the way of Papal Imperialism. War was the standard operating procedure for the Vatican.
Coat of arms of the Knights of Malta from the façade of the church of San Giovannino dei Cavalieri, Florence, Italy.
It wasn’t until the deceit and espionage of the Jesuits took over the remnants of the Templar Knights, called the Knights of Malta, that the Catholic Church was able to effectively manipulate kings and nations without having to go to war itself. Kings became the pawns of Vatican espionage and Jesuit intrigue. The Jesuits infiltrated every monarchy of Europe by establishing court schools that trained the new monarchs in the ways of the Jesuits. This still continues to this day with the twenty-four U.S. Jesuit colleges and universities that train our politicians and elite.
Since pedophilia and slavery were institutionalized in Rome, the Roman Catholic Church is well versed in these machinations. There have been centuries of child abuse and pedophilia in the Catholic Church and as we know, an abused child is more likely to become a child abuser. Thus, the genesis of pedophilia in America and throughout the world is taught to children in Catholic schools. The dissonance of being taught morality while being treated immorally creates the split in the human soul that can allow the evil of child abuse and torture to exist in the soul of a child trained in a Catholic school or a parishioner in a Catholic Church.
Pope Francis has said that a child abuser is committing an act of “black magic.” Black magic rituals and human sacrifice often accompany the abuse of children. These rituals are, in fact, a defiling of the Catholic sacrament of Holy Eucharist – the ritualistic “eating and drinking of the body and blood of Jesus.”(7)
“Why has the Church been plagued by so much pedophilia – predominantly homosexual?
The sheer extent of homosexual pedophilic abuse within the Church prompts speculation that an extremely patriarchal institution, combined with the all-male hierarchy’s repudiation of women as equal partners in service and governance, perhaps engenders a homoerotic internal culture that attracts homosexual men to the priesthood. However, those factors alone cannot explain the predominance of homosexual pedophilia. After all, a high proportion of nuns operating in Catholic all-female environments tend to be lesbians — but not lesbian pedophiles.
A therapist who treats abuser priests, Leslie Lothstein, proffers another possible explanation. Lothstein implicates the sexual immaturity of priests, who by entering the seminary often as young as 14, miss a critical passage of maturation — first-time sexual experimentation — that is accessible to their non-seminarian peers. Caught in a bind of stunted sexual growth, such men may be driven emotionally to claim and possess their past unexplored adolescent territory that the rules of a celibate priesthood had placed out of bounds.
A complementary explanation derives from two active priests, two former priests, and several ex-seminarians, who quit their studies partly out of disgust with the sexual abuse to which their teachers subjected them. Working with these priests and ex-seminarians demonstrated, sadly, that sexual abuse at the seminary can simultaneously initiate youngsters into homosexual pedophilia and impart the lesson that Catholic institutions tolerate pedophilia. Moreover, such abuse can also cause a victim to later appropriate his former abuser’s predatory/aggressive behavior as psychological compensation for the shame he had felt during the time he was being abused at the seminary.
Let us take note, however, as we consider these issues, that, yes, homosexual pedophilia predominates behind the Church’s walls. Priests do have greater access to males than to females within Catholicism’s sex-segregated communities — there are no altar girls. Priests take boys, not girls, on retreats and camping trips.
And yes, solid evidence invites speculation that the generational reproduction of homosexual pedophilia within the Church is partly attributable to a role-reversal syndrome playing out among officials — from priests to bishops — who themselves had been child victims of abuse.
All that being as it may, equally solid documentation exists to show that female children, too, are sometimes the victims of sexual abuse within the Church. In fact girls are one quarter of the victims and they are disproportionately under eight years old.”(8)
“A number of books, such as “The Rite of Sodomy: Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church”, have argued that homosexual priests view sex with minors as a “rite of passage” for altar boys and other pre-adult males.
A 2005 article in the conservative Irish weekly the Western People proposed that clerical celibacy contributed to the abuse problem by suggesting that the institution of celibacy has created a “morally superior” status that is easily misapplied by abusive priests: “The Irish Church’s prospect of a recovery is zero for as long as bishops continue blindly to toe the Vatican line of Pope Benedict XVI that a male celibate priesthood is morally superior to other sections of society.”
Christoph Schönborn and Hans Küng have also said that priestly celibacy could be one of the causes of the sex abuse scandals within the Catholic Church.
Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, said, “We don’t see the Catholic Church as a hotbed of this or a place that has a bigger problem than anyone else. I can tell you without hesitation that we have seen cases in many religious settings, from traveling evangelists to mainstream ministers to rabbis and others.”
In 1998, a religious research national survey on revealed a very high number of nuns reporting childhood victimizations of sexual abuse by other nuns. It was further noted that the majority of nun-abuse victims are of the same sex. In 2002, Markham examined the sexual histories of nuns to find several cases of nuns sexually abusing children. In the last decade, many more cases have been recovered suggesting that cases involving nuns are as frequent or more frequent than those involving male priests.
Vatican officials have expressed concern that the church’s insistence on confidentiality in its treatment of priestly sexual abuse cases was seen as a ban on reporting serious accusations to the civil authorities. Early in 2010 Cardinal Claudio Hummes, the head of the Congregation for Clergy, finally said that instances of sexual abuse by priests were “criminal facts” as well as serious sins and required co-operation with the civil justice system. Italian academic Lucetta Scaraffia described the conspiracy involved in hiding the offence as omerta, the Mafia code of silence, and said that “We can hypothesise that a greater female presence, not at a subordinate level, would have been able to rip the veil of masculine secrecy that in the past often covered the denunciation of these misdeeds with silence”.
|It is easy to think that when we talk about the crisis of child rape and abuse that we are talking about the past – and the Catholic Church would have us believe that this most tragic era in church history is over. It is not. It lives on today. Pedophiles are still in the priesthood. Coverups of their crimes are happening now, and bishops in many cases are continuing to refuse to turn information over to the criminal justice system. Cases are stalled and cannot go forward because the church has such power to stop them. Children are still being harmed and victims cannot heal.
|— Abuse victim, Mary Dispenza
Mary Dispenza states further that crimes against children took place in the past, take place now and will continue in the future unless Pope Francis and the bishops act decisively to ensure that child safety has higher priority than protecting priests and the image of the Catholic Church.”(9)
Many of these Churchmen were well known sex perverts and pedophiles. It is not a coincidence that the Catholic Church has had to pay out over $4 billion in lawsuits concerning child abuse and torture, yet seldom has any Catholic priest gone to jail for these crimes. In America alone, over 40,000 cases have been brought to court. These crimes go unpunished and the Catholic Church is still abusing children to this day while the Pope demands that everyone else must be moral and follow his commands. This double standard is rather shocking in the light of the evidence of 10,000 priests being charged with sex crimes in America since 2002.
These crimes against humanity should have shut down the Catholic Church as an evil corporation of war that is still unrepentant and unpunished.
Pedophilia is a way of life for Roman Catholic priests that has not stopped even after the many lawsuits wherein few are ever criminally punished. Somehow, the “crime of the century” is uncovered, yet not prosecuted because the Catholic Church seems to have control of politicians, judges and those in power – many of whom went to Catholic schools and universities. This simple fact is an example of the complete and absolute control the Catholic Church (Jesuits) has over those in power throughout America and the entire world.”(23)
“The Quran allows pedophilia. Though there is no verse, which gives clear sanction to pedophilia, there are some verses, which clearly allows the practice.
The Quran has stipulated a waiting period for divorced women to get remarried. This waiting period is called Iddah as mentioned in the Quran. But there is an exception; Allah, the God of the Quran, prescribes no Iddah for a category of divorced women:
O ye who believe! If ye wed believing women and divorce them before ye have touched them, then there is no period that ye should reckon. But content them and release them handsomely.
From this verses, it is understood that Iddah (stipulated waiting period) is tied to consummation of the marriage. If a woman is divorced by her husband before touching her, i.e. before having sex with her, she need not observe any waiting period to get remarried.
Clearly the reasons for Allah to stipulate Iddah is to avoid chances of pregnancy as a result of sexual relations between the married couple before their divorce.
In cases of divorces, where the husband had sex with the wife, the Quran specifies the Iddah, a waiting period of three months, in verse 65:4:
Such of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the prescribed period, if ye have any doubts, is three months, and for those who have no courses (it is the same): for those who carry (life within their wombs), their period is until they deliver their burdens: and for those who fear Allah, He will make their path easy.
Here, Iddah is prescribed to two categories of women. First it says: “Yaisna mina al-maheedhi”—that is, “those women who are desperate of menses”. This indicates women, who reached the stage of menstruation but do not menstruate. The other category are those, who have reached menopause. Desperate of menses points to women, who, though reached the age, fail to menstruate. Their Iddah period is three months. This is prescribed probably to take maximum precaution about her being pregnant. Next, there comes “Wallaee Lam yahidhna”—that is, “those who have not menstruated yet”; this group of women are prepubescent girls, who have not menstruated yet. Here, the Iddah prescribed for them is the same: three months.
But what is the reason for the prescribed Iddah for girls, who haven’t menstruated yet?
It is, obviously, because sexual intercourse has occurred between the child and her husband. It is, thus, clear that marrying prepubescent girls and having sex with them is sanctioned by the Quran.
Quran 65:4 obviously stipulates Iddah to divorced prepubescent girls. Moreover, the Quran prescribes no waiting period or Iddah for a divorced woman, who makes no sexual contact with her husband. Therefore, divorced prepubescent girls need to observe Iddah, simply because sexual contact has occurred between her and her husband. This proves beyond any scope of doubt that the Quran endorses pedophilia, the most abominable and perverted of all sexual crimes.”(10)
“A hadith is one of various reports describing the words, actions, or habits of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. The term comes from Arabic meaning a “report”, “account” or “narrative”. Hadith are second only to the Quran in developing Islamic jurisprudence, and regarded as important tools for understanding the Quran and commentaries (tafsir) written on it.
The hadith literature is based on spoken reports that were in circulation in society after the death of Muhammad. Unlike the Qur’an the hadiths were not quickly and concisely compiled during and immediately after Muhammad’s life. Hadith were evaluated and gathered into large collections during the 8th and 9th centuries, generations after the death of Muhammad.
Sahih Hadiths of al-Bukhari (810-870)
1c. “Narrated ‘Urwa: The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with ‘Aisha while she was six year old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).” [Bukhari 7:88, p.65]
Sahih Hadiths of Abu Muslim (817-875)
2a. “‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house at the age of nine.”
2b. “‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old.”
“‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married here when she was seven years old, and she was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and here dolls were with her: and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.” [Sahih Muslim 2:3310,3311, p.716]
Sahih Hadith of Abu Dawud (817-888/9)
3a. “‘A’ishah said: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) married me when I was seven years old. The narrator Sulaiman said : Or six years. He had intercourse with me when I was nine years old.” [Abu Dawud 2:2116, p.569]
Khomeini’s Teachings on sex with infants and animals:
Islamic teachings on sex with infants:
“A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate. If he penetrates and the child is harmed then he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life. This girl, however would not count as one of his four permanent wives. The man will not be eligible to marry the girl’s sister.” [The complete Persian text of this saying can be found in “Ayatollah Khomeini in Tahrirolvasyleh, Fourth Edition, Darol Elm, Qom”]
Umar ibn al-Khattab married 10 or 12 year old girl:
Umar ibn al-Khattab, the 3rd caliph of Islam, at the age of 55 married Umm Kulthum bint Ali when she was between 10 and 12 years old. Some sources even say that she was five years old when Umar married her.
Fatwas by Ulemas:
By “sheikh mohammed al munajid” of Islam QA.
Is it acceptable to marry a girl who has not yet started her menses?
I have not yet reached the age of puberty. Is it correct that a girl could get married before her menses start, or is that just a traditional myth?.
Praise be to Allaah.
Marriage to a young girl before she reaches puberty is permissible according to sharee’ah, and it was narrated that there was scholarly consensus on this point.
1. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘Iddah (prescribed period), if you have doubt (about their periods), is three months; and for those who have no courses [(i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise”
In this verse we see that Allaah states that for those who do not menstruate – because they are young and have not yet reached the age of puberty – the ‘iddah in the case of divorce is three months. This clearly indicates that it is permissible for a young girl who has not started her periods to marry.
Al-Tabari (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
The interpretation of the verse “And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘Iddah (prescribed period), if you have doubt (about their periods), is three months; and for those who have no courses [(i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise”. He said: The same applies to the ‘idaah for girls who do not menstruate because they are too young, if their husbands divorce them after consummating the marriage with them.
Fatwas By Islam Web
Fatwa No.: 88199; Fatwa Title: Age for marriage in Islam Fatwa; Date: 19 Jumaadaa Al-Uolaa 1425 / 07-07-2004
What is the normal age for a Muslim to marry?
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
The preferred age for marriage for a young man is when he is fit to get married, can provide for his wife and can fulfill marital requirements. The Prophet () advised the youth to get married and illustrated its benefits, like lowering the gaze and protecting the private parts from illegal sexual relationship
As regards, the age of getting married for a girl, it is when she becomes physically fit for sexual intercourse. It is confirmed in Sahih Al Bukhari that the Prophet married Aisha, when she was 6 years of age, and consummated the marriage with her when she was 9 years of age.
The guardian of a girl should take the initiative to marry her off if he finds a suitable person who has the required characteristics that the Prophet illustrated when he said: If any man whose religion and character are satisfactory proposes to marry one of your women, marry him, otherwise there will be great mischief and corruption on earth”. [Al-Thirmidhi and others].
Mohammed was a pedophile
The story of Muhammad’s role in re-setting the Black Stone in 605
Even according to the most stringent clinical definition of pedophilia, DSM-IV-TR, Muhammad would be defined as a pedophile. Note that there are other generally accepted definitions of pedophilia that do not confine the definition to pre-pubertal children or require fantasies, sexual urges or behaviors over a certain period of time. However, for the sake of this discussion I will confine my argument to DSM-IV-TR.
Islam allows and promotes child marriage.”(11)
“One of the most disturbing things about Islam is that it does not categorically condemn pedophilia. Indeed, it cannot, for to do so would draw attention to the pedophilia of Muhammad, the founder of Islam. Many Muslims cannot condemn pedophilia even if they would like to, for they would have to abandon Islam. Muslims tacitly approve of pedophilia, even if they are embarrassed to say so. So mesmerized are Muslims by the example of Muhammad’s pedophilia that they are unable to categorically denounce pedophilia or feel shame. It is prevalent in many Muslim countries disguised as child marriage.”(12)
Note:The statistics below are all concerning Muslim residents.
“As girls in the Middle East are considered worth less than boys, it may be that their incestuous use during childhood is even more prevalent. One report found that four out of five Middle Eastern women recalled having been forced into fellatio between the ages of 3 and 6 by older brothers and other relatives.
A female Arab physician who recently conducted an extensive study of childhood seduction reported that “most female children are exposed to … incidents of sexual assault” during their early years by “the brother, the cousin, the paternal uncle, the maternal uncle, the grandfather or even the father. If not a family member, he may be the guardian or porter of the house, the teacher, the neighbor’s son, or any other man.” The molestation, she says, begins with masturbation or fellatio and then proceeds to intercourse. “In most cases the girl surrenders and is afraid to complain to anyone, since, if there is any punishment to be meted out, it will always end up by being inflicted on her. It is she alone who loses her honor and virginity. The man never loses anything … “ The incidents are termed “frequent, but remain hidden, stored up in the secret recesses of the female child’s self, since she dare not tell anyone of what has happened to her …
Indonesia tops the UN bodies list for child trafficking cases
data from End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and the Trafficking of Children (Ecpat) show up to 70,000 children in Indonesia may have fallen victim to sexual exploitation.
The group says the majority of victims are from West, Central and East Java, West Kalimantan and North Sumatra. In many cases, the children are promised work as domestic workers but end up in prostitution dens.
More than 3,900 children here have fallen victim to human trafficking in the first half of the year, according to the International Organization for Migration. The country tops the UN body’s list of child trafficking cases. (November 2011)
There had been a worrying escalation in the number of child sex abuse cases. In 2010, Komnas PA received 2,046 reports of violence against children, 42 percent of which were sexual. In 2012, the figure had risen to 2,637 cases, 62 percent of them sexual abuse. (March 2013)
Jordan (October 2009)
According to a survey conducted by UNICEF, in cooperation with the national council for family, cases of physical and psychological abuse have increased in the past period in Jordan. The study showed that at least 70 percent of school students are subjected to some form of physical or physiological abuse by parents or teachers in schools.
Netherlands (October 2010)
50% of honor-violence victims have been sexually abused
Honor-related crime victims are sexually abused more often than previously thought. That is one of the most remarkable conclusions of a study Nethe social services organization Fier Fryslân.
Of the 89 women who turned to Fier Fryslân between January 2008 and March 2010, 45 were sexually abused by family members, sometimes by several people.
Of the 45 sexually abused girls, 52% were abused by a cousin, 22% by a brother and 20% by an uncle. 8% were abused by their father, 2% by a stepfather, and 2% by an acquaintance.
Pakistan (December 2004)
A Pakistani minister has revealed hundreds of cases of alleged child sex abuse at Islamic schools, or madrassas.
There were 500 complaints this year of abuse allegedly committed by clerics, Aamer Liaquat Hussain, a minister in the religious affairs department, said.
That compares with 2,000 last year, but as yet there have been no successful prosecutions, Mr Hussain told the BBC.
The minister’s revelations have sparked death threats and infuriated some religious political leaders.
Mr Hussain said he had received death threats from clerics, but that he had done his job and his conscience was clear.
The time had come for his country to face the bitter truth – the sickness of child abuse, he said.
In total, 68 percent girls and 32 percent boys have been the victims of paedophilia. The number increased by 9.4 percent as compared to 2008. Statistics show that around 81 percent of the cases were registered with the police. The study shows that 2,012 children were reportedly abused in 2009 and most of them were abused by acquaintances.
The report says that children from the 11 to 15 age-group are amongst the most vulnerable, followed by the age-group 6 to 10. Out of a total 2,012 victims, 6 percent of the children were murdered after being sexually assaulted. However, 0.5 percent cases were of those children who were murdered during an “attempt” of sexual assault.
According to the study, “it is difficult to collect actual data regarding child molestation as the abusers threaten children not to share such experiences, even with parents”.
Cases: Even in cases where the molesters are revealed, people are unable to bring them to the book without solid evidence. Due to lack of evidence and social stigma, parents of molested children often choose to stay silent, hence these incidents go ignored. (July 2010)
In Karachi, 29 percent victims of sexual violence in 2011 belonged to the age bracket of 12-17 years – the group being most vulnerable. At least 27 percent of the young victims fell in the age group of 6-11 years.
Around 37 per cent of survivors were children under the age of 12 while 66 per cent were children under 18. The report mentions that nearly 80 per cent of sexual assault survivors were females while the remaining 20 per cent were male. (March 2012)
According to recent studies, 60 percent of all sexual assault victims are minors. Family members commit nearly one third of these incidents.
Addressing the issue of family violence at the Jeddah Chamber of Industry and Commerce on Sunday night, Inaam Robai, chairperson of the Committee for Protecting Children’s Rights at the Armed Forces Hospital, said that child abuse in Saudi Arabia has become a very serious issue.
She pointed out that Interior Ministry studies have shown that 45 percent of children are mistreated during their daily lives.
Robai cited a study of Makkah households estimating that 77 percent of child abusers are parents. (December 2006)
Domestic violence against children is on the rise in Saudi Arabia, according to the latest figures released by the Saudi National Human Rights Society.
“Nearly 45 per cent of children in the Kingdom are facing some sort of abuse and domestic violence,” the group pointed out.The overwhelming majority of victims in domestic violence cases are girls, with a whopping percentage of 78 whereas the case of boys accounts for 21.6 per cent. (December 2008)

More than 23% of children in Saudi society have been raped. …the study was directed at university students. Twenty-three percent had been raped during their childhood. For 62% of those, the rape was never reported. This was because it was one of the victim’s relatives. (December 2008)
Two studies have been issued on the issue of child abuse in the last two months. The first one, conducted in the United States, claims one in six children would be subjected to sexual abuse.
The second study, conducted in Saudi Arabia by Dr. Nura Al-Suwaiyan, director of the family safety program at the National Guard Hospital, revealed one in four children is [sexually] abused in the Kingdom.
This clearly shows that children are far more likely to be molested in the Kingdom than in the United States!
The reason for this is the way each country deals with the problem. From a legal point of view, while sexual harassment against children in the US is considered a heinous crime, we [Saudi Arabia] look at it as a mistake or a wrongdoing, not as a crime, unless the child has been raped.
Turkey (June 2008)
According to figures provided by the state Social Services and Child Protection Agency (SHÇEK), 2,678 — 18 percent — of the 14,398 children currently living in SHÇEK homes have been subject to physical or sexual abuse by their parents.
Noting that according to Justice Ministry figures, 7,000 children are subject to sexual harassment and rape annually, Polat noted that the frequency of incest incidents and sexual crimes against children by members of their families have been consistently increasing. In 2000, 7 percent of the children placed in SHÇEK homes were there as a result of sexual abuse at home, but that percentage has risen to 15 percent over the past few years.
The unofficial figures are frightening. According to a study conducted by the Association for the Rehabilitation of Children and their Protection from Abuse (ÇİKORED), 58 percent of all girls and 42 percent of all boys whose mothers have been accepted by a women’s shelter in the country have also been subject to sexual abuse at home. Nearly all of the women who have taken refuge from domestic violence at these shelters, 92 percent, beat their own children regularly, ÇİKORED’s study in women’s shelters found.
Note that the “Asian” gangs grooming young girls were also targeting Hindu and Sikh children, and that Pakistan is 96 percent Muslim.
One in four men accused of ‘street grooming’ underage girls for sex is Asian, a shocking report reveals.
In total, 2,379 offenders are suspected of attempting to lure vulnerable victims, often using drugs and alcohol, over the past three years.
And a ‘disproportionate’ 28 per cent of them were found to be Asian, in those cases where ethnicity was recorded. The ethnic group makes up just six per cent of the UK population. (June 2011)
But although the figures are likely to provoke controversy, officials warn that they are incomplete and potentially misleading.
The report was ordered after the ringleaders of a Derby gang, which subjected a string of vulnerable girls to rapes and sexual assaults, were jailed earlier this year. Following the case, former home secretary Jack Straw accused some Pakistani men in Britain of seeing white girls as ‘easy meat’ for sexual abuse.
Several police forces have investigations currently going on into gangs suspected of systematically abusing young girls.
Britain’s madrassas have faced more than 400 allegations of physical abuse in the past three years, a BBC investigation has discovered.
But only a tiny number have led to successful prosecutions.
The revelation has led to calls for formal regulation of the schools, attended by more than 250,000 Muslim children every day for Koran lessons.
Leading Muslim figures said families often faced pressure not to go to court or even to make a formal complaint.
A senior prosecutor told the BBC its figures were likely to represent the tip of an iceberg. (October 2011)
Mohammed Shafiq, director of the Ramadhan Foundation, said of the 68 recent convictions involving child sexual exploitation, 59 were of British Pakistani men, “so clearly we have got a problem when it comes to on-street grooming”. (May 2012)
Nine men of Pakistani origin are accused of having raped 631 teenage girls from youth shelters over the past five years, the Times of London reports, explaining that on Tuesday the rapists were all found guilty of sexual violence by a court in Liverpool. The victims, writes the Times, were drawn from centers, drugged or made drunk and taken to apartments, pubs and clubs with the complicity of the taxi driver to Greater Manchester, in Lancashire, and West Yorkshire where they were systematically raped. Two of the girls from shelters in Manchester and Rochdale died because of the violence.
According to the Times investigations verified that the youth shelters, which have over 1,800 teenagers, registered 631 cases of girls between the ages of 12 and 16 being used for sexual purposes, of which 187 in the last ten months alone. The trial, which saw nine men between 22 and 59-years of age sentenced, among whom eight were of Pakistani origin and one Afghan exile, out of a total of 26 arrests and 56 questioned, revealed that many cases could have been avoided if the police had not ignored a complaint made in 2008 by a social services employee who spoke of “clear evidence of sexual exploitation organized in youth centers.” At the same time, a complaint by a 15-year-old girl claiming to have been raped by ten men was considered not reliable by the police. The behavior forced the Manchester police and Rochdale social services to publicly apologize for mistakes that “delivered children into the hands of rapists.” (May 2012)
United States (June 2012)
We do know that roughly 1 in 58 children is abused in the United States… Roughly 53 percent of abused children in America are neglected, in other words, the parents fail to provide a minimum standard of care that meets the child’s physical and emotional needs. About 10 percent of [the 1 in 58] abused children are physically abused by their parent/guardian.
If we look at the incidence of child abuse in Muslim-majority countries, our numbers are much higher than those in America, and because our cultural norms immigrate with us, it stands to reason that Muslim American children are abused at a higher rate than non-Muslim children in the U.S.“(13)
Catholic Priests and the Vatican
“Cases of sexual abuse (particularly of children) and subsequent cover-ups committed during the 20th and 21st centuries by Catholic priests, nuns, and members of Roman Catholic orders have led to numerous allegations, investigations, trials and convictions. The abused include boys and girls, some as young as 3 years old, with the majority between the ages of 11 and 14.
The accusations began to receive wide publicity in the late 1980s. Many of these involve cases in which a figure was accused of abuse for decades; such allegations were frequently made by adults or older youths years after the abuse occurred. Cases have also been brought against members of the Catholic hierarchy who covered up sex abuse allegations onset on seminary formations, and through moving allegedly abusive priests to other parishes, where abuse sometimes continued.
The cases received significant media and public attention throughout the world, especially in Ireland, Canada, and the United States. Members of the Church’s hierarchy have argued that media coverage was excessive and disproportionate, and that such abuse takes place in other religions and institutions. A series of television documentaries in the 1990s, such as “Suffer the children” (UTV, 1994), brought the issue to national attention in Ireland. A critical investigation by The Boston Globe in 2002 led to widespread media coverage of the issue in the United States, which was later dramatized in Tom McCarthy’s film Spotlight in 2015. By 2010, much of the reporting focused on abuse in Europe.
From 2001 to 2010 the Holy See, the central governing body of the Catholic Church, considered sex abuse allegations involving about 3,000 priests dating back up to fifty years. Cases worldwide reflect patterns of long-term abuse and of the church hierarchy regularly covering up reports of alleged abuse. Diocesan officials and academics knowledgeable about the Roman Catholic Church say that sexual abuse by clergy is generally not discussed, and thus is difficult to measure. In the Philippines, where as of 2002 at least 85% of the population is Catholic, revelations of child sexual abuse by priests followed the United States’ reporting in 2002.
Although nationwide inquiries have been conducted only in the United States and Ireland, also an Australian inquiry into institutional responses, cases of clerical sexual abuse of minors have been reported and prosecuted in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other countries. In 1994, allegations of sexual abuse of 47 young seminarians surfaced in Argentina. In 1995, Cardinal Hans Hermann Groër resigned from his post as Archbishop of Vienna, Austria over allegations of sexual abuse, although he remained a Cardinal. Since 1995, more than 100 priests from various parts of Australia were convicted of sexual abuse.
In Ireland, the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse issued a report that covered six decades (from the 1950s). It noted “endemic” sexual abuse in Catholic boys’ institutions, saying that church leaders were aware of abuses and that government inspectors failed to “stop beatings, rapes and humiliation.” The commission’s report on church abuse ran to five volumes. The report noted the “centrality of poverty and social vulnerability in the lives of the victims of abuse.”
Church officials and academics knowledgeable about the Third World Roman Catholic Church say that sexual abuse by clergy is generally not discussed, and thus is difficult to measure.
Academic Mathew N. Schmalz notes India as an example: “you would have gossip and rumors, but it never reaches the level of formal charges or controversies.” Traditionally, the Roman Catholic Church has held tight control over many aspects of church life around the globe, including “the words used in prayer”, but it left sex abuse cases to be handled locally.
Allegations of and convictions for sexual abuse by clergy have occurred in many countries. There area no accurate figures available on the number of sexual abuse cases in different regions. But, in 2002 The Boston Globe reported, “clearly the issue has been most prominent in the United States.” The US is the country with the highest number of reported Catholic sex abuse cases. Plante wrote, the “crisis in the United States reached epidemic proportions within the Church, the likes of which haven’t been witnessed before.”
After the United States, the country with the next highest number of reported cases is Ireland. A significant number of cases have also been reported in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and countries in Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
In 2001, the Vatican first required that sex abuse cases be reported to the Rome hierarchy; before that, it left management of the cases to local dioceses. After the 2002 revelation by the Boston Globe that cases of abuse were widespread in the Church in Massachusetts and elsewhere, The Dallas Morning News did a year-long investigation. It reported in 2004 that even after these revelations and public outcry, the institutional church had moved allegedly abusive priests out of the countries where they had been accused but assigned them again to “settings that bring them into contact with children, despite church claims to the contrary”. Among the investigation’s findings was that nearly half of 200 cases “involved clergy who tried to elude law enforcement.”
The cases received significant media and public attention in the United States, Ireland (where abuse was reported as widespread), and Canada, and throughout the world. In response to the attention, members of the church hierarchy have argued that media coverage has been excessive and disproportionate.
In many jurisdictions growing awareness of child sexual abuse and understanding of its psychological damage has resulted in an increasing number of civil lawsuits for monetary damages stemming from such incidents. More victims have come forward to report abuse, compared to past years in which they were shamed to silence.
In the United States the 2004 John Jay Report, commissioned from John Jay College and funded by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), was based on volunteer surveys completed by the Roman Catholic dioceses in the United States. The 2004 John Jay Report was based on a study of 10,667 allegations against 4,392 priests accused of engaging in sexual abuse of a minor between 1950 and 2002.
The surveys filtered provided information from diocesan files on each priest accused of sexual abuse and on each of the priest’s victims to the research team, in a format which did not disclose the names of the accused priests or the dioceses where they worked. The dioceses were encouraged to issue reports of their own based on the surveys that they had completed.
The report stated there were approximately 10,667 reported victims (younger than 18 years) of clergy sexual abuse between 1950 and 2002:
- Around 81% of these victims were male.
- Female victims of sexual abuse by Catholic priests tended to be younger than the males. Data analyzed by John Jay researchers, shows that the number and proportion of sexual misconduct directed at girls under 8 years old was higher than that directed at boys the same age.
- 22.6% were age 10 or younger, 51% were between the ages of 11 and 14, and 27% were between the ages to 15 to 17 years.
- A substantial number (almost 2000) of very young children were victimized by priests during this time period.
Some of the accused priests were forced to resign. Some priests whose crimes fell within statutes of limitation are in jail. Some have been laicized (defrocked). Others — because they are elderly, because of the nature of their offenses, or because they have had some success fighting the charges — cannot be laicized under canon law. Some priests live in retreat houses that are carefully monitored and sometimes locked.
Bernard Francis Law, Cardinal and Archbishop of Boston, Massachusetts, United States, resigned after Church documents were revealed which suggested he had covered up sexual abuse committed by priests in his archdiocese.
The responses of the Catholic Church to the sex abuse cases can be viewed on three levels: the diocesan level, the episcopal conference level, and the Vatican. Responses to the scandal proceeded at levels in parallel, with the higher levels becoming progressively more involved as the gravity of the problem became more apparent. For the most part, responding to allegations of sexual abuse in a diocese was left to the jurisdiction of the local bishop or archbishop.
According to Thomas Plante, a psychiatrist specializing in abuse counseling and considered an expert on clerical abuse, “unlike most large organizations that maintain a variety of middle management positions, the organizational structure of the Catholic Church is a fairly flat structure. Therefore, prior to the Church clergy abuse crisis in 2002, each bishop decided for himself how to manage these cases and the allegations of child sexual abuse by priests. Some have handled these matters very poorly (as evidenced in Boston) while others have handled these issues very well.”
Since 2002, a major focus of the lawsuits and media attention has been criticism of the approach taken by bishops when dealing with allegations of sexual abuse by priests. As a general rule, the allegations were not reported to legal authority for investigation and prosecution. Instead, many dioceses directed the offending priests to seek psychiatric treatment and for assessment of the risk of re-offending.
In 2004, according to the John Jay report, nearly 40% of accused priests participated in psychiatric treatment programs. The remaining priests did not undergo abuse counseling because allegations of sexual abuse were only made after their death. The more allegations made against a priest, the more likely he was to participate in treatment.
Some bishops repeatedly moved offending priests from parish to parish after abuse counseling, where they still had personal contact with children. In response to these allegations, defenders of the Church’s actions have suggested that in reassigning priests after treatment, bishops were acting on the best medical advice then available. According to the USCCB, Catholic bishops in the 1950s and 1960s viewed sexual abuse by priests as “a spiritual problem, one requiring a spiritual solution, i.e. prayer”.
However, starting in the 1960s, the bishops came to adopt an emerging view based on the advice of medical personnel who recommended psychiatric and psychological treatment for those who sexually abused minors. This view asserted that with treatment priests who had molested children could safely be placed back into ministry, although perhaps with certain restrictions such as not being in contact with children. This approach viewed pedophilia as an addiction, such as alcoholism which can be treated and restrained.
In 2005, Kathleen McChesney of the USCCB said “In 2004, at least 1,092 allegations of sexual abuse were made against at least 756 Catholic priests and deacons in the United States. [ … ] What is over is the denial that this problem exists, and what is over is the reluctance of the Church to deal openly with the public about the nature and extent of the problem.”
John L. Allen, Jr., Vatican correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter, commented that many American Catholics saw the Vatican’s initial silence on the Boston Globe stories as showing a lack of concern or awareness about the issue. However, Allen said that he didn’t know anyone in the Roman Curia who was not at least horrified “by the revelations that came out of the Globe and elsewhere” or who would defend “Cardinal Law’s handling of the cases in Boston” or “the rather shocking lack of oversight that revealed itself” though “they might have different analyses of what should have happened to him”. Allen described the Vatican’s perspective as being somewhat skeptical of the media handling of the scandal. In addition, he asserted that the Vatican viewed American cultural attitudes toward sexuality as being somewhat hysterical as well as exhibiting a lack of understanding of the Catholic Church.
While the church in the United States claims to have addressed the issue, some disagree. Mark Honigsbaum of The Guardian wrote in 2006 that, “despite the National Review Board’s own estimates that there have been some 5,000 abusive priests in the US, to date 150 have been successfully prosecuted.” Some critics of the church, such as Patrick Wall, attribute this to a lack of cooperation from the church. In California, for example, the archdiocese has sought to block the disclosure of confidential counseling records on two priests, arguing that such action would violate their First Amendment right on religious protection. Paul Lakeland claims Church leaders who enabled abuse were too frequently careless about their own accountability and the accountability of perpetrators.
Benedict XVI, Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger, Papacy-2005 – 2013
In September 2010, Pope Benedict XVI lamented that the Roman Catholic Church had not been vigilant enough or quick enough in responding to the problem of sexual abuse by Catholic clergy. Pope Benedict laicized 400 priests for abuses in two years of his papacy.
A representative of Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), a group representing abuse victims, criticized the pope’s remarks as “disingenuous” because, in her opinion, the church had in fact been “prompt and vigilant” in concealing the scandal.
After Benedict’s resignation in 2013, he was criticised by SNAP for allegedly protecting the church’s reputation “over the safety of children.” Representatives from the Center for Constitutional Rights (at the time engaged in an International Criminal Court case against Pope Benedict in which they were acting for SNAP), alleged that Pope Benedict had been directly involved in covering up some of the crimes.
As reported by the Boston Globe, some bishops had facilitated compensation payments to victims on condition that the allegations remained secret. For example, according to the Boston Globe, the Archdiocese of Boston secretly settled child sexual abuse claims against at least 70 priests from 1992 to 2002.
In November 2009, the Irish Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse reported its findings in which it concluded that:
“the Dublin Archdiocese’s pre-occupations in dealing with cases of child sexual abuse, at least until the mid 1990s, were the maintenance of secrecy, the avoidance of scandal, the protection of the reputation of the Church, and the preservation of its assets. All other considerations, including the welfare of children and justice for victims, were subordinated to these priorities. The Archdiocese did not implement its own canon law rules and did its best to avoid any application of the law of the State”.
In April 2010, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins wanted to prosecute the Pope for crimes against humanity due to what they see as his role in intentionally covering up abuse by priests. In a CNN interview a few days later, however, Dawkins declined to discuss the international crime law courts definition of crimes against humanity, saying it is a difficult legal question.
In April 2010, a lawsuit was filed in the Milwaukee Federal Court by an anonymous “John Doe 16” against the Vatican and Pope Benedict XVI. The plaintiff accused Ratzinger and others of having covered up abuse cases to avoid scandal to the detriment of the concerned children.
In February 2011, two German lawyers initiated charges against Pope Benedict XVI at the International Criminal Court. As one of the reasons for the charges they referred also to the “strong suspicion” that Joseph Ratzinger, as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, covered up the sexual abuse of children and youths and protected the perpetrators.
Silvano Tomasi, the Holy See’s ambassador to the U.N. stated that the Vatican was not responsible for abusive priests because “priests are citizens of their own states, and they fall under the jurisdiction of their own country” but the United Nations report differed claiming that since priests are “bound by obedience to the pope” under canon law, then the Holy See is accountable. The report also urged the Vatican to insist that priests and bishops involve the police in all abuse reports and end a “code of silence” leading to whistleblowers being “ostracized, demoted and fired.”
Statements by Pope Francis
In July 2014, Pope Francis was quoted as having said in an interview that about 8,000 Catholic clergy (2% of the total), including bishops and cardinals, were pedophiles.”(14)
“There must be something very wrong at the Vatican. The Pope’s new scapegoat for the Church’s sex abuse scandal is the 1970s.
Victims of clerical sex abuse have reacted furiously to Pope Benedict’s claim yesterday that paedophilia wasn’t considered an “absolute evil” as recently as the 1970s. In his traditional Christmas address yesterday to cardinals and officials working in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI also claimed that child pornography was increasingly considered “normal” by society. “In the 1970s, paedophilia was theorised as something fully in conformity with man and even with children,” the Pope said.
“It was maintained — even within the realm of Catholic theology — that there is no such thing as evil in itself or good in itself. There is only a ‘better than’ and a ‘worse than’. Nothing is good or bad in itself.”
The Pope said abuse revelations in 2010 reached “an unimaginable dimension” which brought “humiliation” on the Church.”(15)
“Angry abuse victims in America last night said that while some Church officials have blamed the liberalism of the 1960s for the Church’s sex abuse scandals and cover-up catastrophes, Pope Benedict had come up with a new theory of blaming the 1970s.
“Catholics should be embarrassed to hear their Pope talk again and again about abuse while doing little or nothing to stop it and to mischaracterise this heinous crisis,” said Barbara Blaine, the head of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests,
“It is fundamentally disturbing to watch a brilliant man so conveniently misdiagnose a horrific scandal,” she added.
“The Pope insists on talking about a vague ‘broader context’ he can’t control, while ignoring the clear ‘broader context’ he can influence — the long-standing and unhealthy culture of a rigid, secretive, all-male Church hierarchy fixated on self-preservation at all costs. This is the ‘context’ that matters.”(16)
“Many of these Churchmen were well known sex perverts and pedophiles. It is not a coincidence that the Catholic Church has had to pay out over $4 billion in lawsuits concerning child abuse and torture, yet seldom has any Catholic priest gone to jail for these crimes. In America alone, over 40,000 cases have been brought to court. These crimes go unpunished and the Catholic Church is still abusing children to this day while the Pope demands that everyone else must be moral and follow his commands. This double standard is rather shocking in the light of the evidence of 10,000 priests being charged with sex crimes in America since 2002.
These crimes against humanity should have shut down the Catholic Church as an evil corporation of war that is still unrepentant and unpunished.
Pedophilia is a way of life for Roman Catholic priests that has not stopped even after the many lawsuits wherein few are ever criminally punished. Somehow, the “crime of the century” is uncovered, yet not prosecuted because the Catholic Church seems to have control of politicians, judges and those in power – many of whom went to Catholic schools and universities. This simple fact is an example of the complete and absolute control the Catholic Church (Jesuits) has over those in power throughout America and the entire world.
US Catholic Priest Pedophiles
March 5, 2013 – USA Today
In the U.S. alone, more than 16,000 victims have reported abuse from Catholic priests. Similar scandals have roiled Australia, Ireland, Scotland, Belgium and Benedict XVI’s own Germany, each revealing thousands more victims. The details in each country are as horrifying as they are familiar. Hundreds of priests abused and raped children. Reports of abuse were ignored. Victims were sometimes muzzled. Predator priests were shuffled off to other parishes to molest again and the highest church leaders often fought to keep the details secret.

Pedophile Ring used Boys Home
September 23, 2013 – Sydney Morning Herald
An organized ring of pedophiles believed to include Anglican and Catholic clergy used a Sunday afternoon children’s Christian program in the 1970s to sexually abuse boys at a church-run Wallsend Boys Home. The United Protestant Association has already paid compensation and provided support to a woman for repeated sexual assault over a six-year period at its girls’ home, Ellimatta.

Pope will have Security, Immunity by Remaining in the Vatican
February 15, 2013 – Reuters
Pope Benedict’s decision to live in the Vatican after he resigns will offer legal protection from any attempt to prosecute him in connection with sexual abuse cases around the world. In 2010, Benedict was named as a defendant in a lawsuit alleging that he failed to take action as a cardinal in 1995 when he was allegedly told about a priest who had abused boys at a U.S. school for the deaf decades earlier. If Benedict lived anywhere else, then we might have others who are filing lawsuits, or some magistrate might arrest him.

Files Detail Decades of Abuse in Joliet Diocese
March 21, 2013 – Chicago Tribune
The Joliet Diocese readily admitted that David Rudofski was sexually abused. He demanded the church files which contain more than 7,000 records detailing how the diocese purposefully shielded priests, misled parishioners and left children unprotected for more than a half-century. More than 13 percent of priests serving in the diocese would later have credible abuse allegations leveled against them.
“Pedophilia not criminal condition” says Durban cardinal
March 15, 2013 – BBC News
The Catholic Archbishop of Durban, Wilfrid Fox Napier, has described pedophilia as a psychological “illness, not a criminal condition,” a “disorder,” and the perpetrators are not criminally responsible. He said he knew at least two priests who became pedophiles after themselves being abused as children. “Now don’t tell me that those people are criminally responsible like somebody who chooses to do something like that. I don’t think you can really take the position and say that person deserves to be punished. He was himself damaged,” said the Archbishop.

Pope Francis: ‘About 2%’ of Catholic Clergy Are Pedophiles
July 13, 2014 – BBC News
Pope Francis has been quoted as saying that reliable data indicates that “about 2%” of clergy in the Catholic Church are pedophiles, some of whom are pedophiles are priests, bishops and cardinals. It would represent around 8,000 priests out of a global number of about 414,000. These estimates only include developed countries that submit those statistics. It is generally believed that the estimate is more likely between 10% – 20% making it 40,000 to 80,000. Pope Francis emphasizes that pedophilia in priests is a psychology disorder not simply a crime.

Vatican Defrocks 848 Priests or Pedophilia
May 6, 2014 – ABC News/Associated Press
The Vatican revealed that over the past decade, it has defrocked 848 priests who raped or molested children and sanctioned another 2,572 with lesser penalties, providing the first ever breakdown of how it handled the more than 3,400 cases of abuse reported to the Holy See since 2004. The Vatican’s U.N. ambassador in Geneva, Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, released the figures during a second day of grilling by a U.N. committee monitoring implementation of the U.N. treaty against torture. Tomasi insisted that the Holy See was only obliged to abide by the torture treaty inside the tiny Vatican City State, which has a population of only a few hundred people. But significantly, he didn’t dispute the committee’s contention that sexual violence against children can be considered torture.
UN Panel Confronts Vatican on Child Sex Abuse by Clergy
January 16, 2014 – BBC News
The Vatican has been confronted publicly for the first time over the sexual abuse of children by clergy, at a UN hearing in Geneva. Officials faced a barrage of hard questions covering why they would not release data and what they were doing to prevent future abuse. Last month, the Vatican refused a request from the UN’s Committee on the Rights of the Child for data on abuse, on the grounds that it only released such information if requested to do so by another country as part of legal proceedings. The Holy See is a signatory to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, a legally binding instrument which commits it to protecting and nurturing the most vulnerable in society. The Vatican was asked why it continued to describe abuse as an offence against morals rather than a crime against children.

Prominent Catholic Priest Father Julian Fox Jailed for Child Sex Crimes
August 28, 2015 – Herald Sun
The former Australian head of the second-largest Catholic order, Father Julian Fox, is today behind bars, 16 years after being accused of child sex crimes while teaching at Melbourne schools in the 1980s and 1990s. Fox was sentenced to four years’ jail and fined $10,000 today for sexually and physically assaulting five students. Fox is one of a long list of priests and brothers from the Salesian Order who have now been convicted of terrorizing kids between the 1960s and 1990s. Despite his crimes, he rose to become head of the Salesian Order. In 2004, the Australian chapter was engulfed in global scandal after it was alleged local superiors moved priests accused of sexual assaults across international and state borders to evade authorities.
The Litany of Child Abuse by Catholic Priests in Australia
November 24, 2015 –The Guardian
Priest after priest in the Melbourne archdiocese of the Catholic Church was caught abusing children. And for decades, bishop after bishop ignored these crimes. But Melbourne fits the now familiar pattern of the Catholic world. In Melbourne over the past 35 years, 454 people made claims about child sexual abuse by priests, religious employees or volunteers; 335 claims against priests.

Pope Francis Defends Pedophile Bishop
October 7, 2015 – New York Times
Pope Francis called people in Osorno, a city in southern Chile, “dumb” for protesting against a bishop accused of being complicit in clerical sexual abuse. “The Osorno community is suffering because it’s dumb,” Pope Francis told a group of tourists on St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City, quickly instilling doubts about the pope’s commitment to protecting victims of sexual abuse. Bishop Barros was appointed by the pope to head the Diocese of Osorno this year, despite reports that he had covered up sexual abuses committed by Father Fernando Karadima who was found guilty of sexual abuses by the Vatican in 2011 and ordered to a life of seclusion, prayer and penitence (not jail). According to some of Father Karadima’s victims, Bishop Barros was witness to and complicit in the abuses.

Vatican says Bishops not “Obliged” to Report Clerical Child Abuse
February 2, 2016 – The Guardian
The Catholic Church is telling newly appointed bishops that it is “not necessarily” their duty to report accusations of clerical child abuse and that only victims or their families should make the decision to report abuse to police.

Catholic Church Spent $2M Lobbying Against Child Sex Abuse Accountability Laws
May 5, 2016 – International Business Times
The Roman Catholic Church in New York has spent millions of dollars in recent years to stop a law that would make it easier for victims of child sex abuse to sue their attackers.

Feds May Seek Racketeering Suit for Clergy Abuse in Diocese
April 3, 2016 – ABC/Associated Press
A federal prosecutor may file a racketeering lawsuit against a Roman Catholic diocese where a state grand jury found two former bishops helped cover up the sexual abuse of hundreds of children by more than 50 clergy over a 40-year period. The ongoing investigation of the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese grew out of the prosecution of the Rev. Joseph Maurizio Jr. The U.S. Attorney has concerns whether diocesan officials engaged in a pattern of criminal activity that would fall under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as RICO.

At least 231 Children in Choir Abused by Pope’s Brother
January 8, 2016 – The Journal
Former Pope Benedict’s sudden resignation is speculated by many to have stemmed from rampant child abuse problems in the Catholic Church. These accusations are supported by a number of witnesses and a shocking story that the former Pope Benedict’s brother abused at least 231 children at a catholic boys choir.

U.S. Catholic Pedophile Lawsuits
In the United States, over 3,000 civil lawsuits have been filed against the church, some of these cases have resulted in multimillion-dollar settlements with many claimants. In 1998 the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dallas paid $30.9 million to twelve victims of one priest. From 2003 to 2009 nine other major settlements, involving over 375 cases with 1551 claimants/victims, resulted in payments of over US $1.1 billion.
The Associated Press estimated the settlements of sex abuse cases from 1950 to 2007 totaled more than $2 billion. BishopAccountability.org puts the figure at more than $3 billion. Addressing a flood of abuse claims, five dioceses (Tucson, Arizona; Spokane, Washington; Portland, Oregon; Davenport, Iowa, and San Diego) got bankruptcy protection. Eight Catholic dioceses have declared bankruptcy due to sex abuse cases from 2004 to 2011.
British and Anglican Pedophiles
The crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Catholic Church are appalling, but don’t underestimate the British Imperial Empire. Once you read the chronology of pedophilia crimes in the government of Britain, you may wonder if the Anglican Church is any better than the Roman Catholic Church. Just as in the Catholic Church, pedophiles in politics seem to think they are immune from prosecution. And it seems that TV stars think they are even more immune than politicians. Jimmy Savile was a close friend of British Royalty and many say this was why he was “immune” from prosecution. But once his case began to unwind, it opened the British to a revelation of pedophilia and human sacrifice that is barbaric and evil.
Jimmy Savile and the BBC
Jimmy Savile, the entertainer with royal connections raped dozens of kids – including a boy who was just two years old – while working at the BBC. Decades ago, journalist Jill Dando alleged the BBC might be involved in a pedophilia ring. Then Jill Dando was found dead on her front doorstep.
Although, there have been several historic victories in the UK exposing some of these pedophiles, like Lord Janner and Cyril Smith, these stories are somehow just scratching the surface of the guilty parties involved in such horrific unspeakable acts. Other cases continue to be covered up and hushed.”(23)
The following video is a preview of the gut wrenching documentary called Deliver Us From Evil, about a serial pedo-rapist that the Catholic Church enabled for three decades:
Rabbi’s and Jewish Pedophilia
“Media oligarchs, have completely suppressed growing and incontrovertible evidence of massive pedophilia among the orthodox Jewish community—in complete contrast to the huge publicity they have given—and still continue to give—to far fewer incidents in the Christian churches.
In the much reported child abuse cases in the Catholic Church for example, the media has ensured that the whole world knows about that scandal—even though, by the church’s own admission, around 1.5 percent of its clergy have been involved in such deviance.
Although the media has occasionally reported child abuse in the orthodox Jewish community, it has not however received the same blanket coverage—even though the rates of abuse among that community are far higher—as much as 50 percent, according to a new independent study.
According to a new documentary by the independent Vice film company, called “The Child-Rape Assembly Line” it is revealed that in “ritual bathhouses of the Jewish orthodoxy, children are systematically abused” and that one rabbi who has dared to speak out against the practice, has been abused and even threatened with death by his fellow Jews.
According to the documentary, Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg explained what he described as a “child-rape assembly line” among sects of fundamentalist Jews.
A member of Brooklyn’s Satmar Hasidim fundamentalist branch of Orthodox Judaism, Nuchem designs and repairs mikvahs in compliance with Torah Law. The mikvah is a ritual Jewish bathhouse used for purification. Devout Jews are required to cleanse themselves in the mikvah on a variety of occasions: women must visit following menstruation, and men have to make an appearance before the High Holidays such as Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Many of the devout also purify themselves before and after the act of sex, and before the Sabbath.
On a visit to Jerusalem in 2005, Rabbi Rosenberg entered into a mikvah in one of the holiest neighborhoods in the city, Mea She’arim.
“I opened a door that entered into a schvitz,” he told me. “Vapors everywhere, I can barely see. My eyes adjust, and I see an old man, my age, long white beard, a holy-looking man, sitting in the vapors. On his lap, facing away from him, is a boy, maybe seven years old. And the old man is having anal sex with this boy.”
Rabbi Rosenberg believes around half of young males in Brooklyn’s Hasidic community—the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world—have been victims of sexual assault perpetrated by their elders. Ben Hirsch, director of Survivors for Justice, a Brooklyn organization that advocates for Orthodox sex abuse victims, thinks the real number is higher. “From anecdotal evidence, we’re looking at over 50 percent. It has almost become a rite of passage.”
A few weeks after giving that interview, Rabbi Rosenberg was walking through the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn when an unidentified man rushed up behind him, tapped him on the shoulder, and threw a cup of bleach in his face. He went to the hospital with facial burns and was temporarily blinded.
“Such is the measure of justice among the Satmar that a once-respected rabbi, now amputated from the community, should find himself chemically burned on a street in a neighborhood considered holy.
“Later Rabbi Rosenberg told me a story of being surrounded by young boys in Williamsburg. The boys cursed him, laughed at him, threatened him, and spat at him. He wondered how many of them would end up molested.”(17)
“Even though Jews rape boys at a much higher rate than Catholic priests, we never seem to hear about it very much in the media.
Gavriel Bodenheimer, Principal of Yeshiva Bais Mikroh, a boys’ yeshiva
A Monsey rabbi and school principal was arrested Monday by Ramapo police after an investigation led by the Rockland District Attorney’s Office special unit that deals with sex crimes against children.
The exact charges against Gavriel Bodenheimer were unclear. His lawyer, David Ascher, said the charges were contained in a sealed indictment that he had not been able to see.
Bodenheimer, 71, was being processed Monday afternoon at the Rockland County jail, Ascher said. He said he has been told the arraignment and unsealing of the indictment will take place Tuesday morning.
Bodenheimer is principal of Yeshiva Bais Mikroh, a boys’ yeshiva.
Chief Assistant District Attorney Art Ferraro said the office would have no comment on the matter at this time.
Bodenheimer is a respected member of the Orthodox Jewish community and has been an educator for decades.
Several educators from Ramapo have been accused of sexually abusing young men.
Moshe Taubenfeld recently pleaded not guilty to felony charges of sexually abusing a pre-teen boy for five years from 2001 to 2006. His brother Herschel Taubenfeld, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of forcible touching.
The video below is the story of a Rockland County, New Square, ultra-orthodox community student who was sexually abused by Taubenfeld:
As tacit proof of the control that the Hasidic community has in New York, Taubenfeld, even after being convicted, received only a sentence of 6 months probation and continued teaching as before.
And so the abuse goes on.”(18)
“Another upstanding pillar of the Jewish community has just been jailed for child abuse.
This time it is one of their ‘big names’ who used to live in Stanmore, an area in London that the Jews keep ethnically pure and just for themselves.
He has been given a six year jail sentence for directing the abuse of children online.
Simeon Osen, 53, of Forest Lane in Chigwell, Essex used to lived in Stanmore, he pleaded guilty to 13 offences of arranging and facilitating the commission of child sex offences during 2012.
Harrow Crown Court heard today (November 6) that Osen who is Jewish and been described as, a ‘pillar of his community’, used online video tool, Skype to instruct girls as young as 10 years-old in the Philippines to penetrate themselves, masturbate and expose their private parts.
He was sentenced to just under five years and 11 months in jail after pleading guilty to all 13 counts which included having indecent images.
Sentencing Osen was Judge Martyn Barklem, he said: “These children were for the most part pre pubescent, ranging from ages 10 years-old to 15 years-old. These children were not objects to be used for your sexual gratification, they are real children and real people.
“I accept that most of your life you have been a pillar of your community and it comes as no surprise that your extended family have turned their back on you despite your remorse. It is a complete revulsion.”
The court heard how Osen would transfer money via Paypal for young girls in the Philippines to touch themselves via Skype.
Prosecutor, Rhiannon Sadler said: “He paid for sex shows involving children as young as 10 years-old, he would arrange the girls and direct them via Skype. Officers went through over 41,000 Skype messages which they discovered on Mr Osen’s computers. He would negotiate ages, prices and what kind of acts he would like to see.”
The court also heard how on one occasion Osen was watching a 13 year-old girl over Skype penetrate herself, but he could not ejaculate because he was in his workplace and the cleaner was around.”(19)
“David Cyprys is appealing his sentence of 8 years for numerous rapes of young boys during the 80s and 90s. He admitted to raping 8 of the victims after being found guilty on another child rape charge. He taught karate and worked as a security guard at Chabad-Lubavitch school for boys in Melbourne.
Cyprys, 45, is now contesting his conviction for rape with the Court of Appeal. His wife, Michelle Coleman, said in a statement: “He is appealing the five counts of rape of which he was convicted by a jury. These five counts of rape refer to a single individual. I can say that it is the same individual who made a claim of touching, not rape, against David in 1991, to which David pleaded guilty and paid a $1,500 fine.”
David Cyprys walking with his chum, the Chabad leader Rabbi Avrohom Glick
The only one of the victims to go public was Manny Waks. “An appeal of this kind would no doubt have a detrimental impact on some of Cyprys’ many victims,’’ Waks said. “Many would want to move on from this difficult period but he is now causing us to relive the trauma he inflicted upon us.”
Waks added: “It also highlights the lack of remorse by Cyprys, something the judge pointed out during the case. I am confident that justice will prevail, again.”(20)
Child molesting Rabbi Mordechai Elon arrives at Jerusalem Magistrates Court to hear his sentence. Since the boys were over 9 years old, he has broken the ruling in the Talmud that only boys under the age of 9 can be sexually abused.
“The Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday sentenced Rabbi Mordechai Elon to six months of community service, as well as a 15-month suspended jail term, rejecting the prosecution’s demand that he be sent to prison for fondling a minor. Elon, once a celebrated mentor of Israel’s religious Zionist movement, was also ordered to pay the victim NIS 10,000 ($2,850) in compensation.
The court explained its decision to forgo a prison term, saying that the trial and conviction had themselves caused the rabbi to “fall from grace” and constituted a “severe” punishment for him and his family.
After the sentencing, Elon said that he “happily accepted” the community service, wryly noting that has already been serving the community for years and “will be happy to engage in public service until I’m 120 years old.” As for the conviction, he said, ”The entire process is based on a mistake. The charges are false. The whole process was flawed. I’m in a good place, and I’ve only grown from this.” Elon’s attorney, Asher Ohayon, said he and his client would mull an appeal.
The sentencing came four months after the court convicted Elon of committing an indecent act against the minor, known as A., on two separate occasions, but acquitted him of two other charges of sexual assault and harassment.
The state prosecution asked the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court in October to sentence Elon to nine to 12 months in prison, saying that the punishment in similar cases ranged from six to 18 months, and suggesting that the rabbi be sentenced to a term in the middle of that range. The prosecution also demanded that the rabbi be forced to pay compensation to the minor.
Elon’s defense attorney, on the other hand, requested that he receive only community service and a suspended jail sentence.
Before the allegations against him surfaced, Elon was one of the most prominent Zionist Orthodox leaders of his generation in Israel.”(21)
Rabbi Boruch Lesches
“Rabbi Boruch Lesches is a recognized leader within the global and influential Chabad (Orthodox Jewish) movement and former head rabbi of Sydney, Australia.
A senior Australian rabbi who failed to stop an alleged paedophile from sexually abusing boys at a Sydney Jewish school said some of the victims may have consented to sexual relations and has warned that involving police now would “open a can of worms”.
Former senior Sydney Rabbi Boruch Dov Lesches made the extraordinary remarks in a recent conversation with a person familiar with a series of alleged child rapes and molestation by a man associated with Sydney’s Yeshiva community in the 1980s.
Rabbi Lesches’ comments are likely to increase public scrutiny of Australia’s senior rabbinical leaders’ handling of child sexual abuse cases, amid allegations of cover-ups, victim intimidation and the hiding of perpetrators overseas.
In a legally recorded telephone conversation heard by Fairfax Media and provided to NSW detectives investigating the Sydney Yeshiva cases, Rabbi Lesches admitted to counselling the alleged abuser upon learning he had sexually abused a boy a decade his junior.
Rabbi Lesches said he told the man that both he and the boy would be forced to leave the Yeshiva community if he could not control his urges.
“If not, both of them would have to leave,” he said.
Rabbi Lesches, who never informed police of the abuse, said he did not know the man had ignored his warning and gone on to sexually abuse at least three other boys in the late 1980s.
He said other Yeshiva leaders were responsible for supervising the man.
In the conversation, Rabbi Lesches suggested one of the man’s victims, who was aged about 11 at the time of the abuse, may have been a consensual partner. “Everyone was telling different stories and trying to put the blame on someone else,” he said.
“We are speaking about very young boys … everybody says about the other one that ‘he agreed to this’.”
When challenged on his position that young boys could give consent, Rabbi Lesches replied “you would be surprised” and added that some non-Jewish boys, who he termed “goyims”, began acting or thinking sexually “from the age of five”.
He said teenagers from poor backgrounds had “nothing else to do in life, only thinking 24 hours about sex” with each other, members of their own families and even “dogs”.
A traditional rule, mesirah, prohibits a Jew from reporting another’s wrong-doing to non-Jewish authorities; it remains a powerful influence in some ultra-orthodox communities.
Rabbi Lesches, who did not respond to questions from Fairfax Media, is the third senior rabbinical leader to be identified as having known something about the abuse of boys at the Sydney Yeshiva in the 1980s.”(22)
The Franklin Coverup Scandal
The “Franklin cover-up,” the biggest pedophile scandal in US history and even implicated the White House.
The Franklin child prostitution ring took place between 1988 and 1991 and involved a child sex ring serving prominent citizens of Nebraska, as well as high-level U.S. politicians. The sex ring was led by “a cult of devil worshipers involved in the mutilation, sacrifice and cannibalism of numerous children”. The operation centered on the actions of Lawrence E. King Jr., who ran the now defunct Franklin Community Federal Credit Union (FCFCU) in Omaha, Nebraska.
“This was the biggest pedophile scandal in the history of the U.S.A. The story received some newspaper coverage but there was a TV News Media blackout on the subject. For this reason, most Americans have never heard of it.
Former republican Senator John Decamp was involved in the production a documentary called “Conspiracy of Silence” it was to air May 3, 1994 on the Discovery Channel. This documentary exposed a network of religious leaders and Washington politicians who flew children to Washington D.C. for sex orgies. At the last minute before airing, unknown congressmen threatened the TV Cable industry with restrictive legislation if this documentary was aired.
Almost immediately, the rights to the documentary were purchased by unknown persons who had ordered all copies destroyed. A copy of this videotape was furnished anonymously to former Nebraska state senator and attorney John De Camp who made it available to retired F.B.I. chief, Ted L. Gunderson. While the video quality is not top grade, this tape is a blockbuster in what is revealed by the participants involved. You can purchase a VHS copy at this link. Or you can view an online copy at this page. Franklin Cover up video page
Boy prostitutes 15 years old (and younger) were taking midnight tours of the Whitehouse. There are 19 more Washington Times articles in full text about this case available here at this link.
Newspaper scans or text are not for commercial use. Solely to be used for the educational purposes of research and open discussion.
The story was also covered in the New York Times and other major east coast newspapers, but because of the links to White House and control from the top the story was killed..
There are two main suspects in the child ring were Craig Spence and Lawrence E. King Jr. Both were involved in the republican party. King sang the National anthem at two republican national conventions during the 1980s. He served time in jail for bank fraud and is now living somewhere on the east coast.. Spence was an important republican lobbyist, he committed suicide. Several of his partners went to jail for being involved in the adult part of the homosexual sex ring. Democrats were also involved in this as well, so don’t expect them to expose the sex ring.”(24)
Following is a rough cut of the documentary ‘Conspiracy of Silence.’:
In 1987 the New York Times ran a story about a little known cult called “The Finders.” The first paragraph reads: “Police officials here said today that six disheveled children found in Tallahassee, Fla., might be the offspring of members of a little known cult, but the officials said they had not ruled out the possibility of kidnapping.”
The Washington City Paper once described the Finders as such: “In appearance, the Finders—mostly middle-aged men, always in dark suits—wouldn’t be out of place managing a local funeral home. But the behavior of the handful of adherents has people wondering whether they arrived by flying saucer. Townspeople say the Finders constantly walk the streets, following people home and taking extensive notes and pictures. They often appear at local council meetings, never saying a word but simply observing the scene. At other times, they plunder the visitor’s center of brochures, maps, and local travel guides. And they haunt the courthouse, scouring land deeds to find out who owns the local real estate.”
The Washington City Paper goes on to address the shocking specter of the alleged Satanist practices of the cult, with the startling revelation: “But among all the cryptic inventory, cops found a photo album entitled ‘The Execution of Henrietta and Igor,’ a series of snapshots depicting robed adults and children slaughtering goats in a wintry wood scape.”
One US News and World Report article states: “The more the police learned about the Finders, the more bizarre they seemed: There were suggestions of child abuse, Satanism, dealing in pornography and ritualistic animal slaughter.”
These shocking developments led to a raid on the Finders compound by the U.S. Customs Service. The report produced after the raid is astounding. USCS Report of Investigation Continuation, filed by Special Agent Ramon J. Martinez, includes:
“During the execution of the warrant I was able to observe and access the entire building. I saw large quantities of children’s clothing and toys. Cursory examination of documents revealed detailed instructions for obtaining children for unspecified purposes. The instructions included the impregnation of female members of the community known as the Finders, purchasing children, trading and kidnapping.
One telex specifically ordered the purchase of two children in Hong Kong to be arranged through a contact in the Chinese Embassy there. Another telex expressed interest in ‘bank secrecy’ situations. Other documents identified interests in high-tech transfers to the United Kingdom, numerous properties under control of the Finders, a keen interest in terrorism, explosives and evasion of authorities.
There was also a set of instructions which appeared to be broadcast via a computer network which advised participants to move ‘the children’ and to keep them moving through different jurisdictions, and instructions on how to avoid police attention.
“I was able to observe numerous documents which described explicit sexual conduct between members of the community known as Finders. I also saw a large collection of photographs of unidentified persons. Some of the photographs were nudes, believed to be members of Finders. There were numerous photos of nude children.
One album contained a series of photos of adults and children dressed in white sheets participating in a ‘blood ritual’. The ritual centered on the execution of at least two goats. The photos portrayed the execution, disembowelment and dismemberment of the goats at the hands of the children.
The warehouse contained a large library, two kitchens, a sauna, hot tub, and a ‘video room.’ The video room seemed to be set up as an indoctrination center. It also appeared that the organization had the capability to produce its own videos. There were what appeared to be training areas for the children and what appeared to be an altar set up in a residential area of the warehouse.”
A follow up report revealed the most shocking detail of the entire Finders case:
“I was advised that all of the passport data had been turned over to the State Department for their investigation. The State Department in turn advised MPD (D.C. Metropolitan Police Department) that all travel and use of passports by the holders of the passports was within the law and no action would be taken. This included travel to Moscow, North Korea, and North Vietnam from the late 1950’s to the early 1970’s.
The individual further advised me of circumstances which indicated that the investigation into the Finders had become a CIA internal matter. The MPD report has been classified and is not available for review. I was advised that the FBI had withdrawn from the investigation several weeks prior and that the FBI Foreign Counter Intelligence Division had directed the MPD not to advise the FBI Washington Field Office of anything that had transpired. After the Finders investigation became a ‘CIA internal matter’, no action against the Finders was ever taken, and the case has largely faded from public memory.”
Not everyone was content with the investigation simply ‘ending.’ Florida congressman Tom Lewis was quoted as saying: “Could our own government have something to do with this Finders organization and turned their backs on these children? That’s what all the evidence points to,” says Lewis. “And there’s a lot of evidence. I can tell you this: We’ve got a lot of people scrambling, and that wouldn’t be happening if there was nothing here.”
Digging by the media could only produce one confirmed connection–a firm which operated as a ‘front organization’ for the CIA providing officers with computer training employed several members of the Finders.
The Washington Times reported: “Other Customs Service documents and records from the FBI and Metropolitan Police provide indications that the CIA had links to the Finders or at least to some of the group’s members. A Metropolitan Police document quotes a CIA agent as confirming that his agency was sending its personnel to Finders Corp., Future Enterprises, for training in computer operations.” And a later Customs Service report says that the CIA “admitted to owning the Finders organization as a front for a domestic computer training operation but that it had gone bad.”
Please note that this article comes from 1987 when there was almost no talk of human trafficking, let alone a CIA or FBI connection to an organization which was obviously trafficking children.
History repeats itself: Just like the Finders case, we see local law enforcement agencies and the FBI being told to stand down on the Anthony Weiner case. In fact, the FBI’s actions sanctioned the atrocities of Weiner, Podesta, Epstein, and the other CIA agents acting as lobbyists by giving them immunity, shorter-than-normal sentences, and simply turning a blind-eye.”(23)
MPs Caught in Pedophile Network
“The first case involves the exposure of five VIP pedophile rings operating in Britain in the 1970s and 80s that have been researched in a dossier compiled by John Mann, an MP for Bassetlaw in the Midlands, which was then submitted to the London Metropolitan Police for further investigation. These five rings all included at least one current or former member of parliament, with a total of 24 politicians having been identified in Mann’s dossier. Six of those 24 are currently serving members of the UK government, including three MPs and three members of the House of Lords. As an MP himself, Mann enjoys parliamentary privilege to name the accused politicians in the House of Commons but has said he will not do so because he believes the accusations should be investigated by police first.
The Met are already investigating claims made by an alleged victim of the network that a Conservative MP strangled a boy to death during one of the ring’s sex parties, and that he personally witnessed two other boys murdered by the gang, including one who was run over in broad daylight. Mann has also indicated that he believes two men may have been murdered as part of a cover-up of the network’s activities.
One of the hurdles in investigating the claims is the Official Secrets Act, which prevents the disclosure of state secrets and “sensitive” information. “It is clear there are a lot of people who could provide a lot of information, potentially vital information, to support ongoing criminal investigations,” Mann said regarding the investigation. “But they are not doing so because of the Official Secrets Act. They are fearful of not only breaking the law but the potential effect on their pension. This is absolutely crucial if we are to get some of these ex-officers coming forward and to get prosecutions of some of the former MPs.” He has asked Home Secretary Theresa May to lift the restrictions, allowing former officials to speak up about what they know about the case, but so far there is no indication that this has been done.
UK Uncovers Huge Pedophile Ring
March 16, 2011 – BBC
International police led by a UK team say they shut down the largest internet pedophile ring yet discovered. The global forum had 70,000 followers at its height, leading to 4,000 intelligence reports being sent to police across 30 countries. The operation has so far identified 670 suspects and 230 abused children. Detectives say 184 people have been arrested – 121 of them were in the UK. Some 60 children have been rescued in the UK.

Jimmy Savile Abuse: Number of Victims Reaches 450
December 12, 2012 – BBC News
Police have confirmed that the number of alleged sex abuse victims of the late Jimmy Savile has reached 450. Of the alleged victims, 82% were female and 80% were children or young people. Meanwhile, police have set up Operation Fairbank to investigate allegations by Labor MP Tom Watson of a pedophile ring in high places. Mr. Watson said in October that police should investigate claims of a “powerful pedophile ring” linked to a previous prime minister’s “senior adviser” and Parliament. Police have a total of 20 suspects whom they wish to interview. They have interviewed seven people in total – six of whom were arrested.

40 UK Politicians Complicit in Westminster ‘pedophile ring’
July 5, 2014 – Reuters
A whistleblower who kicked off UK police pedophile probe Operation Fernbridge believes as many as 40 British MPs and peers were involved in or turned a blind eye to child abuse. Peter Mckelvie, a retired child protection team manager, who has spent more than 20 years compiling evidence of alleged child abuse by people in authority, believes ten current and former politicians are on the list and that there is enough evidence to arrest at least one senior politician. MPs and peers from all three main political parties are on the list including Cyril Smith and Sir Peter Morrison. McKelvie was behind bringing Peter Righton, a notorious pedophile, to justice when he worked for Hereford and Worcester child protection team and believes that up to 20 MPs and Lords should be investigated. Watson spoke of “clear intelligence suggesting a powerful pedophile network linked to parliament and number 10.”

Number of Pedophiles in Britain will Shock Public, warns Deputy Children’s Commissioner for England
May 5, 2015 – The Telegraph
Child sex abuse is so rife in Britain that there is not enough land in the country to build the number of prisons needed to house the perpetrators, the Deputy Children’s Commissioner for England has warned. Scotland Yard is also being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) over claims that it covered up child sex abuse because of the involvement of influential MPs and police officers between the 1970 and 2000s. Mrs. Berelowitz claimed that there were still cover ups happening in local authorities and police stations.

British Police say 261 People of ‘Prominence’ Suspected of Child Sex Abuse
May 20, 2015 – MSN/Reuters
British police investigating allegations of historical child sex abuse said more than 1,400 people had been named as suspects including 261 described as “people of public prominence” including dozens of politicians and TV stars. The suspects included 135 figures from TV, film or radio, 76 politicians involved in both local and national politics, 43 from the music industry and seven from the sporting world. Detectives are also looking into claims powerful figures forced police to drop inquiries into pedophile rings involving high-profile people. Bailey said that 666 of the offenders being investigated were alleged to have carried out abuse at institutions including schools, children’s homes and religious institutions.

Thousands of Children Go Missing from Britain’s Protective Services
March 3, 2015 – Newsweek
Many of the child sex abuse scandals that have shocked Britain in recent years involve victims who were supposed to be under the protection of the state. Each year the government loses track of around 2,000 vulnerable children in care, even as reports of human trafficking inside the country are on the rise. Nearly half of the survivors of human trafficking were at one time inside the U.K.’s care system. The U.K.’s Human Trafficking Center’s latest assessment shows a total of 2,744 people, including 602 children, reported as trafficked for exploitation in the U.K. in 2013.

Up to 85% of Child Abuse in England Remains Undetected
December 11, 2015 – The Guardian
About 50,000 cases of sexual abuse were recorded by police and local authorities in the two years to March 2014. Official figures vastly underestimate the true scale of child sexual abuse. The actual number of children abused in that period is thought to be as many as 450,000. A new report, by the Office of the Children’s Commissioner, found that about 85% of sexually abused young people are not receiving help and treatment.

Epstein Accuser Names Names
Meanwhile in the United States a similarly shocking set of allegations are emerging from a Florida court case surrounding Jeffrey Epstein, the prominent American financier and billionaire who was convicted in 2008 of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution. In the years since his conviction, dozens of women have come forward to accuse him of abuse, and he has made 17 out-of-court settlements in various civil cases arising from these accusations. There is now an ongoing federal civil suit in Florida in which two women are alleging violations of the Crime Victims’ Rights Act in the remarkable plea deal that saw Epstein emerge from the scandal with a single count of solicitation of underage prostitution and a 13-month prison sentence.
Late last month, Virginia Roberts made headlines by submitting a motion to be added to the legal action in Florida. Those documents allege that Roberts was one of Epstein’s underage sex slaves and names both Prince Andrew, Duke of York and fifth in line for the British crown, and Alan Dershowitz, a well-known lawyer and author, as men with whom she was forced to have sex while underage. Buckingham Palace has emphatically denied the claims, and Dershowitz threatened to sue Roberts’ lawyers over the allegations but was instead counter-sued for defamation.
The scandal threatens to re-focus attention on the Epstein case, which raises many important questions about the billionaire’s connections with the rich and powerful. It has since been revealed that Epstein had 21 different phone numbers for contacting his friend Bill Clinton, who, court records allege, “frequently flew” on Epstein’s private jet between 2002 and 2005. The American tabloid press is now reporting that the new claims have created problems for Clinton’s marriage, with Hillary allegedly visibly angry at Bill at a recent public appearance.
Allegations of pedophilia networks amongst the political and entertainment “elite” are of course nothing new. In recent years Britain has been rocked by revelations of repeated, serial sexual abuse of children by popular children’s television entertainers Jimmy Savile and Rolf Harris. These scandals have raised questions about institutional support for these activities at a number of levels, including the BBC, the political classes and even royal participation in the enabling and cover-up of the abuse.”(25)
“In the Epstein case there are numerous questions surrounding the possibility of high-level cover up. In recent weeks it has emerged that Epstein struck a remarkable secret deal with the U.S. Attorney’s Office that barred more than 500 pages of documents detailing negotiations of the deal and a staggering 13,000 documents from the investigation into Epstein’s activities that were shelved as a result of the bargain.
U.S. Military Contractor Traffics Children
“DYNCORP, a U.S. military contractor, was found to have trafficked children, and continued to receive government contracts. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney asked then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld why this corporation continues to receive funding. His answer admitted “abuse happens.” Further information on DYNCORP’s trafficking of children can be found from a whistle-blower, Kathryn Bolkovac – a human rights investigator who saw UN officials, military and state department officials involved in human trafficking in Bosnia. Her story was then turned into a Hollywood movie called “The Whistleblower.”(23)
“Some of the world’s largest multinational corporations such as DynCorp and Halliburton were exposed as major players in the global human trafficking market.
These companies did not work alone, but cooperated with each other through various subsidiaries and had the luxury of government protection.
When suspicion was brought upon these companies it was swept under the rug by government officials, even high-ranking members of the establishment such as Donald Rumsfeld were implicit in covering up this scandal.
On March 11th 2005 he was questioned by Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and he admitted on the record that the allegations did have credibility, but he pushed the blame off onto a few “rogue” employees.
Mr. Secretary, I watched President Bush deliver a moving speech at the United Nations in September 2003, in which he mentioned the crisis of the sex trade. The President called for the punishment of those involved in this horrible business.
But at the very moment of that speech, DynCorp was exposed for having been involved in the buying and selling of young women and children. While all of this was going on, DynCorp kept the Pentagon contract to administer the smallpox and anthrax vaccines, and is now working on a plague vaccine through the Joint Vaccine Acquisition Program.
Mr. Secretary, is it [the] policy of the U.S. Government to reward companies that traffic in women and little girls?”
Rumsfeld used the “few bad apples” line that the government always dishes out when they are caught up in scandal.
Although Rumsfeld and other high ranking officials claimed that they would look into the case, they actually prevented any serious investigations from taking place.
This happens every day, even organizations like the UN and NATO have come under fire for running slave rings out of third world countries when they are on “peacekeeping missions”.
A RICO lawsuit filed in 2002 on behalf of a former Dyncorp employee directly claimed that children were being sold by employees in Bosnia.
Middle-aged men having sex with 12- to 15-year-olds was too much for Ben Johnston, a hulking 6-foot-5-inch Texan, and more than a year ago he blew the whistle on his employer, DynCorp, a U.S. contracting company doing business in Bosnia.
According to the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) lawsuit filed in Texas on behalf of the former DynCorp aircraft mechanic, “in the latter part of 1999 Johnston learned that employees and supervisors from DynCorp were engaging in perverse, illegal and inhumane behavior [and] were purchasing illegal weapons, women, forged passports and [participating in other immoral acts. Johnston witnessed coworkers and supervisors literally buying and selling women for their own personal enjoyment, and employees would brag about the various ages and talents of the individual slaves they had purchased.”
Rather than acknowledge and reward Johnston’s effort to get this behavior stopped, DynCorp fired him, forcing him into protective custody by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID) until the investigators could get him safely out of Kosovo and returned to the United States.
The quote from the whistleblower below pretty much sums up the horrors we are dealing with:
“My main problem,” he explains, “was [sexual misbehavior] with the kids, but I wasn’t too happy with them ripping off the government, either. DynCorp is just as immoral and elite as possible, and any rule they can break they do.“(26)
The Video below is a preview of “The Whistleblower” which is based on the true story of Sex Trafficking corruption in Bosnia:
Is FBI Covering Up Human Trafficking and Pedophilia?
“FBI Director Comey recently boasted about the rescue of 82 sex trafficking victims during the tenth year of Operation Cross Country, a yearly effort by all law enforcement to end human trafficking and pedophilia in America that is part of the FBI’s Innocence Lost National Initiative. The National Center for Missing and Exploited children had 10,000 reported cases this year, yet Comey and the entire U. S. Law Enforcement had the audacity to gloat about rescuing 82 children. This demonstrates a complete lack of concern over the thousands of missing children.
Even with help of the Child Exploitation Task Force, Comey and his law enforcement friends are doing a terrible job of finding the 13,700 children who were reported “missing” last year in America. If you add to this number the 11,800 runaways that the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reported last year, 74% of whom were in the care of social services or foster care at the time, the 82 rescued children seem quite small and indicates how negligent the authorities are in finding the multitude of children who come up missing each year.
FBI agent guilty of sex abuse
February 18, 2004 – Boston Globe/Associated Press
The former chief internal watchdog at the FBI has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl and has admitted he had a history of molesting other children before he joined the bureau for what became a two-decade career. John H. Conditt Jr. was sentenced last week to twelve years in prison. Conditt headed the internal affairs unit, which investigates agent wrongdoing, for the Office of Professional Responsibility at FBI headquarters in Washington from 1999 until June 2001.

U.S. Sex Slave industry
January 25, 2004 – New York Times
The United States has become a major importer of sex slaves. Between 18,000 and 20,000 people are trafficked annually into the United States. Bales estimates that there are 30,000 to 50,000 sex slaves in captivity in the United States at any given time. The trafficking rings reach back into the girls’ hometowns, and local law enforcement is often complicit in the sex trade. The vast majority of child sex slaves in the US are American kids. International sex trafficking is a $99 billion industry.

Massive Pentagon Child Pornography Not Investigated
June 1, 2011 – CNN
The Pentagon porn story began in 2006. An Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] child pornography sting operation called Project Flicker produced payment records of about 5,200 people, many of whom provided Army or fleet zip codes or military email addresses. After about eight months, the entire probe was halted.
Department of Justice Condones Child Porn
September 9, 2012 – Forbes
There is a national crisis of federal employees engaged in the child porn industry and a related epidemic at the state level. Two states, Vermont and Maine appear to be running state protected child trafficking rings with evidence of cops, judges, lawyers, clergy and government employees covering for each other. Half of all global child porn is produced in America. Estimates of the global profits from child porn range from $3-20 billion. The Department of Justice’s Child Exploitation and Obscenities unit has been, by many accounts, totally disabled under US Attorney General Eric Holder who refused to prosecute his own Assistant United States Attorney caught doing child porn on DOJ computers. Child trafficking and porn are the fastest growing crimes in America. The Department of Justice has demonstrated they have no interest in prosecuting pedophiles.

Former cyber security chief convicted in child porn case
August 27, 2014 – CBS News
A former federal cyber security chief was convicted on several charges related to accessing and distributing child pornography. Timothy DeFoggi, 56, was acting director of cyber security at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services when he was detained in May 2013 as part of an investigation targeting three child pornography websites. He is the sixth person convicted in connection with the investigation.

Staggering amount of child abuse victims
April 29, 2014 – Fox News
The CDC estimates that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. Worldwide 550 million children are survivors of child abuse. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reports that there are currently 617,000 registered sex offenders in the United States, and typically 100,000 of those are unaccounted for. Research has shown that an average victim of child sex abuse has to tell at least seven adults before being believed.

Bill Clinton Ditches Secret Service on Multiple “Lolita Express” Trips

Just what happened on the Lolita Express and Jeffrey Epstein’s private island, referred to as “orgy island,” is being uncovered in real time. What does law enforcement know today that they are not disclosing to the public?
Bill Clinton ditched Secret Service on multiple ‘Lolita Express’ flights: Report
Where are all the Missing Children?
From the site of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, we read:
According to the FBI, in 2015 there were 460,699 NCIC entries for missing children. Similarly, in 2014, the total number of missing children entries into NCIC was 466,949. During the last 32 years, NCMEC’s national toll-free hotline has received more than 4.3 million calls. NCMEC has circulated billions of photos of missing children, and assisted law enforcement with more than 13,700 cases of missing children. On average, 90,000 people are missing in the USA at any given time.
There are roughly 400,000 children in the US foster care system as of March 2014. Of that number, approximately 100,000 are waiting to be adopted. Approximately 55,000 children younger than 18 were reported missing from foster care systems in 2014.
Despite the fact that many people believe that slavery no longer exists, the International Labor Organization estimated that there are some 5.5 million children in slavery or practices similar to slavery.
Do you think the FBI is doing a good job after reading the U.S. government’s own statistics on the epidemic of child trafficking and pedophilia?
Is Comey turning a blind eye to the overt criminal industries that the FBI and CIA profit from through political control and power over the US government? It is no internet secret that Comey has been used to “clean up” messes for the Clintons before and especially for George Bush Sr. with his oil and banking cartel messes. Comey was there for the Bush/Clinton criminal families for Whitewater, Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, the pardon of Marc Rich, NSA domestic surveillance, Benghazi scandal, Hillary’s email scandal, Clinton Foundation investigation, Anthony Weiner’s email scandal, and many more.
Another open “secret” is that ever since the days of J. Edgar Hoover, the FBI has been blackmailing politicians as a standard practice. The only people better at covering up the crime they are committing is the CIA, whose job it is to infiltrate, subvert, and control.
The United Nations and Pedophilia
Though we think that we might turn to an organization which boldly claims to represent the best interests of the world’s dispossessed refugees and displaced children to seek help with child trafficking and pedophilia, most of us won’t be shocked to find that even the United Nations has a terrible track record with human rights.
Some say that the UN is the number one producer of refugees instead of the world organization that cares for them. In fact, the UN doesn’t help anyone, at any time. Look closely at the record of UN peacekeepers and you will find they have been essentially ineffectual to help any conflict wind down. They have stood helpless in every conflict they have monitored. Crimes against humanity happen in front of their eyes and the only responses are words in a report or speeches given in New York that effect little change.
Report Slams U.N. for “Gross Institutional Failure” in Child Sex Abuse Cases
December 17, 2015 – CBS/Associated Press
The United Nations’ “gross institutional failure” to act on allegations that French and other peacekeepers sexually abused children in the Central African Republic led to even more assaults, according to a new report. Among those said to have looked the other way were the U.N. children’s agency, UNICEF, as well as human rights staffers. No one has been arrested.

Vile Sex Abuse by UN Peacekeepers
April 14, 2016 – The Telegraph
There were no fewer than 99 allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation by UN military personnel last year, and there have been 25 new claims this year. This isn’t the first time such claims have surfaced about the conduct of UN peacekeepers. There was an alleged pedophile ring in the Democratic Republic of Congo, UN police officers in Bosnia were paying for prostitutes and trafficking young women from Eastern Europe, and Pakistani peacekeepers were found guilty of sexual abuse in Haiti. There’s a track record going back decades.

U.N. Peacekeeping in Crisis as Fresh Child Abuse Allegations Emerge
January 6, 2016 – Newsweek
United Nations peacekeeping personnel must lose their status as “a privileged class,” according to a former senior U.N. official, after fresh allegations of sexual abuse of minors by peacekeepers in Central African Republic emerged. The latest allegations mean that the U.N.’s sex abuse crisis is now more exposed than ever before, but there’s no evidence that the U.N. has changed the way it’s dealing with the problem. The U.N. treats reports of sexual abuse by its personnel as administrative matters to be handled internally and in secret, rather than as serious violent crimes.
U.N. Peacekeeping in Crisis as Fresh Child Abuse Allegations Emerge in Central African Republic
The Dark Net of the CIA
The number one use of the internet is pornography. So is it any surprise that the CIA created the Dark Net to open pedophilia sites to entrap pedophiles? But the real reason the CIA open the first pedophilia sites is much more nefarious – to entrap and blackmail politicians and the elite. Of course the CIA was happy to also use their pedophilia sites to lure pedophiles into using their credit cards to enter the site and thus inform the CIA (and FBI) of their criminal sexual intent.
Had the CIA not created these sites, there would have been no crime – entrapment is illegal. That is why we know the true intent of the Tor and the Dark Net. The article above highlights the use of the Dark Net to entrap pedophiles but the political intent of blackmail is only now coming to the foreground with the new pedophile scandals in Washington with Weiner, Podesta, Epstein and the Bush/Clinton criminal family.”(23)
“It is shocking to find that human trafficking, sex slavery, pedophilia and pagan human sacrifice rituals still continue to this day and are fostered primarily in the halls of power from the Vatican to the U. S. Congress and even the White House. This explicitly evil industry had been well hidden, but now the great uncovering is happening and citizen journalists and investigators are showing the grotesque connections to Anthony Weiner and his wide ring of associates, including his wife Human Abedin, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, John and Tony Podesta, Jeffrey Epstein and many other people who control the political reigns of powers.
John Podesta, once Bill Clinton’s chief of staff and one of President Obama’s top advisors, is center of this investigation due to his emails being released by Wikileaks. Tony and his brother John Podesta run the most powerful lobby agency in Washington. Now being revealed through their own emails are intimations and proof that bribery, pedophilia, sex slaves, and other twisted forms of evil are used to blackmail politicians with videos of their grotesque deeds. Once co-opted at the initial level of wrong-doing, these individuals fall deeper and deeper into levels of human depravity by being shown (or participating in) pedophilia, torture, and/or ritual murders. The blackmailed become puppets to those who pull their strings and co-conspirators in unfathomable evil.
Pedophilia and human trafficking exists BIG TIME.

“We have pedophilia in every state of the Country.
It’s worse in California, Massachusetts, Florida and the Washington D.C. Tri-State area.
Pedophilia is the last veil.
It’s considered a privilege by the elites and law enforcement has been instructed by governors and mayors to turn a blind eye to pedophilia.
One of the real reasons that people are not allowed to know who the adoptive parents are of most children, is because child protective services is actually a criminal scam. In California and several states in the South, these people are being paid to take children away from perfectly good parents who might have a few warts, and they sell them to pedophiles.
The FBI is a theatrical agency, which, by and large, is not a serious law enforcement agency. It’s not allowed to go after traitors and it’s not allowed to go after pedophiles.
Pedophilia is deeply embedded in 20 to 25% of the Republican and Democratic leadership in Washington, among the wealthiest bankers in New York, among the Archbishops, many Bishops and many Cardinals in the Vatican and across the country and we also have pedophile Priests as well as pedophile coaches.
Dennis Hastert is a classic example of a wrestling coach to Speaker of the House pedophile and he’s one of the people that Reince Priebus covered up for.
Huma Abedin was introduced to Hillary Clinton as a young girl and has been with her ever since. It’s not just Bill Clinton that has issues with this.
Trump put his focus on the pedophilia issue too soon. He and Jeff Sessions should have held off until they pushed through electoral reform and got the country behind them. Now what’s happening is that the pedophilia focus has spooked the Establishment and the Establishment has doubled-down on its intent to destroy Trump in the next 90 days.”(28)
“It all started when Wikileaks released emails from Hilliary’s campaign manager John Podesta’s gmail acct on Oct 7, 2016. The e-mails were not hacked by “Russians,” they were in fact leaked by people in the US intelligence community who had had enough of the Clintons and their corruption.
Watch Steve Pieczenik as he explains in more detail what really happened and why:
In addition, here’s a radio interview with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on Sean Hannity’s radio show from Dec 15, 2016. Listen as he talks about his sources and says overtly that Russia was not involved:
SO WHY ALL THE HYPE ABOUT RUSSIAN HACKING AND FAKE NEWS?
Because the biggest story in history just leaked out and people, especially young millennials, have taken the ball and run with it in true journalistic fashion. What’s the biggest story in history?
That there is an enormous global child trafficking & pedophilia ring that is being
run for the benefit of the political and business elite, and that law enforcement and the media are complicit in a cover up.
The cold dark fact is that there is a giant undworld of child abuse that is completely unknown to
most people. It has been there for decades, perhaps centuries, and its scope goes far beyond party
lines or national boundaries. And “Pizzagate” is just another opportunity to bring this scourge of
our species out into the light to face justice, and to free all the children locked away somewhere as
you read this. Obviously those who are behind all of this know that they must not let this get out and will say or do anything to prevent that from happening.
On December 8 the “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act” passed in the Senate, quietly inserted inside the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report. Obama signed of the NDAA on Dec 23 rd 2016, and the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act is now law and will be used to control the narratives & squelch the alt media.
Ted Gunderson, retired head of the Los Angeles FBI office, in the following video he gives us the grim numbers as of about 2005:
4-5 million practicing satanists in the US
83 children abducted every hour in the US (= 1,992 per day, 727,000 per year)
50,000-60,000 people sacrificed each year in satanic rituals in the US (150/day)
Ted goes into great detail and it’s well worth the small investment of time:
HOLLYWOOD IS ALSO A CESSPOOL OF CHILD ABUSE
On May 23, 2016, Lord of the Rings lead actor Elijah Wood said Hollywood’s biggest problem has always been pedophilia. These allegations were covered in Variety, the top Hollywood magazine, among other sources such as the Sunday Times.
Here are a few excerpts from Variety, as they are highly relevant:
“The actor, in a new interview with the Sunday Times is accusing Tinseltown of having a pedophilia problem, saying “a lot of vipers” are preying on children in the business.
“Clearly something major was going on in Hollywood. It was all organized. There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind,” he said.
“There is darkness in the underbelly… People with parasitic interests will see you as their
He added that he’s been “led down dark paths to realize that these things probably are still happening.”
Amy Berg’s documentary “An Open Secret” revealed the full scope of the Hollywood pedophilia problem, and was completely squashed by the Establishment after its premiere. It was only shown in nine theaters in Denver and Seattle starting on June 5th, 2015, and was quickly removed. It eventually got distribution by cutting it from an R to a PG-13, long after the buzz had worn off.
Watch it on Youtube:
“And when Hollywood sexual abuse survivor Corey Feldmen tried to talk generally about the Hollywood subculture of rampant sexual assault and pedophilia with cameras rolling on “The View” in 2013… well if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s definitely one for the historical record which should never be forgotten. Though Feldmen was speaking about his own dark experience involving other powerful film industry predators and not Weinstein in particular, the response he got from one well-known host is certainly indicative of what victims were and are up against.”(30):
If you didn’t catch it, play it again and you’ll notice that Barbara Walters says “You’re damaging an entire industry.”
And here’s an important piece of the story that’s related to the recent Harvey Weinstein Outing:
“And if it wasn’t already clear by now, screenwriter Scott Rosenberg – who was made a star by Miramax – has just posted a revealing bit of prose in the form of an intense mea culpa to his Facebook page concerning what “everybody-fu*king-knew” for not just years, but for decades concerning Weinstein.
At Miramax Rosenberg wrote the popular movies “Beautiful Girls” and “Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead” and acknowledges that “they gave me my career” as part of that period when Harvey Weinstein was the center of a golden age for the indie film universe.
Excerpts from former Miramax screenwriter Scott Rosenberg’s Facebook post, whose mentor was Weinstein throughout the 1990’s and early 2000’s:
So, yeah, I was there.
And let me tell you one thing.
Let’s be perfectly clear about one thing:
Not that he was raping.
No, that we never heard.
But we were aware of a certain pattern of overly-aggressive behavior that was rather dreadful.
We knew about the man’s hunger; his fervor; his appetite.
There was nothing secret about this voracious rapacity; like a gluttonous ogre out of the Brothers Grimm.
All couched in vague promises of potential movie roles.
(and, it should be noted: there were many who actually succumbed to his bulky charms. Willingly. Which surely must have only impelled him to cast his fetid net even wider).
But like I said: everybody-fu*king-knew.
And to me, if Harvey’s behavior is the most reprehensible thing one can imagine, a not-so-distant second is the current flood of sanctimonious denial and condemnation that now crashes upon these shores of rectitude in gloppy tides of bullshit righteousness.
And do you know how I am sure this is true?
Because I was there.
And I saw you.
And I talked about it with you.
You, the big producers; you, the big directors; you, the big agents; you, the big financiers.
And you, the big rival studio chiefs; you, the big actors; you, the big actresses; you, the big models.
You, the big journalists; you, the big screenwriters; you, the big rock stars; you, the big restaurateurs; you, the big politicians.
I saw you.
All of you.
So, yeah, I am sorry.
Sorry and ashamed.
Because, in the end, I was complicit.
I didn’t say shit.
I didn’t do shit.
Harvey was nothing but wonderful to me.
So I reaped the rewards and I kept my mouth shut.
And for that, once again, I am sorry.
But you should be sorry, too.
With all these victims speaking up…
To tell their tales.
Shouldn’t those who witnessed it from the sidelines do the same?
Instead of retreating to the cowardly, canopied confines of faux-outrage?
Doesn’t being a bystander bring with it the responsibility of telling the truth, however personally disgraceful it may be?
You know who you are.
You know that you knew.
And do you know how I know that you knew?
Because I was there with you.
And because everybody-fu*king-knew.”(30)
Harvey Weinstein and Scott Rosenberg
And the same thing could be said about pedophilia in Hollywood.
More than likely, one of the reasons that the Harvey Weinstein has been put in the spotlight is to take the focus off of the rampant pedophilia that everyone also knows about in Hollywood.
And yes everybody knew and knows.

WIKILEAKS RELEASES JOHN PODESTA’S E-MAILS
The Podesta emails went public as of October 7, 2016, and were devastating to the Clinton campaign for other reasons initially.
Out of 2,060 total emails in the first Podesta collection, there are 149 instances of “pizza”, 73 of hot
dog, 85 of cheese, 78 of pasta, 41 of sauce, 84 of ice cream and 47 of walnut.
The word “map,” which can refer to a telltale clue that could destroy the entire crime ring if left
behind, such as through DNA evidence, appears 917 times.
That’s almost half of all the emails. These words often appear in very, very bizarre contexts that
have nothing to do with food. That is one key element of Pizzagate.
The term “pizza” itself appears to be code for a sexual partner, particularly if it is a minor, and
again appears 149 times.
Although “walnut” appears 47 times in very strange ways, the equally popular nut “cashew”
doesn’t appear even once. This is most likely because “walnut” is a code word and “cashew” is not.
An innocuous, non-code-word junk food like “french fries” only appear 13 times. “Milk shake” only appears 6 times.
“Vegetable” only appears 24 times. “Pear” only appears 25 times. “Grape” only appears six times.
“Avocado” only appears four times. “Strawberry” only appears twice. None of these are code words.
UNDERSTAND THE CODE WORDS
Law enforcement authorities and online “Urban Dictionary” resources have identified the specific terms we just mentioned – pizza, cheese, sauce, pasta, et cetera – as code words for child sex
Code words allow people engaging in illegal activities to have a cover story in the event that their
communications are discovered.
A simple, much less serious example of code-speak would be a college student referring to a bag of
weed as a “book”, such as when talking on the phone or in an email about it.
People engaging in criminal activities have always been aware of surveillance, and use code terms
to avoid getting caught, or at least reduce the risk.
A simple-sounding question like “Read any good books lately?” can lead to knowing laughter in
cases like our hypothetical pot-smoking college students.
Here are the main words to watch for as we move forward:
“hotdog” = boy
“pizza” = girl
“cheese” = little girl
“pasta” = little boy
“ice cream” = male prostitute
“walnut” = person of color
YOU CAN RESEARCH IT FOR YOURSELF
Pizza and other specific food terms appear in very suspicious, non-food-related ways in hundreds
of different letters sent by Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta and others.
Here are three notable examples:
I consider ice cream, its purchase, and its consumption a rather serious business. We can’t just
willy-nilly toss it out and about in casual references, especially linked with the word “free”.
Lo and behold, instead of pasta and wonderful sauces, it was a lovely, tempting assortment of
cheeses, Yummy. I am awaiting the return of my children and grandchildren from their holiday
travels so that we can demolish them.
Ps. Do you think I’ll do better playing dominos on cheese than on pasta?
(cheese is code for a little girl, pasta means little boy, not sure what “playing dominoes” is)
Hi John, The realtor found a handkerchief, I think it has a map that seems pizza-related. Is it yours?
Handkerchiefs are apparently used to catch sexual fluids and are saved by the perpetrator as a
memento. “Map” is a code word for semen. People this rich don’t care if they lost a hanky and they sure as heck don’t eat this much pizza.
We also learned about “Spirit Cooking,” a mock-satanic ritual involving blood, semen and breast
milk. Children were in attendance, along with celebrities and other power brokers like the
Podestas. Here’s an email of Marina Abramovic inviting the Podesta brothers to the ceremony:
So let’s have a look at what a “Spirit Cooking” ceremony is really all about. Remember the
reference “cut deeply into the middle finger of the left hand”.
*These photos are from a chart, the black lines connected various people and photos on the chart
And here’s a photo of John Podesta with occult markings on his hands. Notice the band-aid on his Left-hand middle finger, consistent with the spirit cooking ritual mentioned above:
Notice the freaky cannibal artwork hanging in John Podesta’s office:
And John’s brother Tony Podesta is very close friends with former Speaker of the House and
convicted pedophile Dennis Hastert.
Here’s a cryptic email from John to Tony about Dennis after he was caught, obviously in some kind of code:
Yes, it’s always sad when a grown man is held accountable for raping kids…NOT! WTF?!? And what sort of “traffic” is he referring to?!?
Now let’s have a look at John’s brother Tony Podesta.
Here’s an interview with Tony Podesta where he speaks about Dennis Hastert, and that they are
“still friends.” Tony’s not going to let a little thing like child rape come between old friends:
And notice what is said in the article about his brother John and his temper, “Politico’s Glenn
Thrush says that your brother (John Podesta) can have a “short fuse;” that he has “a sulfuric evil
twin [named Skippy] so fearsome that even the brash Rahm Emanuel scrambled for cover.”
Next let’s have a look at Tony’s unusual taste in art. He purchased a 7,000 square foot home that
underwent 3 years of renovations to accommodate all of his “art.”
From magazine Inside Homes: Private Viewing:
“Though he purchased the 7,000-square-foot residence in 2006, he was not able to move in until 2009 as it took nearly three years to finish the massive renovations he undertook”.
“He regularly opens his house to casual pizza parties co-hosted by his friend James Alefantis, the
owner of Comet Ping Pong.”
Notice how his flagship sculpture in the foyer of his home resembles Jeffrey Dahmer’s handiwork, complete with the absence of a head. This sculpture is called “The Arch of Hysteria”:
He is also quite is fond of the artwork of Biljana Djurdjevic… Would you hang these in your home?
And finally, the Podesta Brothers were apparently staying in Portugal at the time of Madeleine
McCann’s disappearance on May 3, 2007. They were staying at the residence of Sigmund Freud’s
grandson Sir Clement Freud, who is a known pedophile, and his home is just 1/3 mile from where Madeleine disappeared.
Here’s a police sketch of the suspects along side photos of the Podesta brothers:
Sir Clement Freud was tied to Madeleine’s disappearance, in fact he befriended the parents
after the disappearance:
And Scotland Yard says they know who took
Madeleine but they can arrest them, because
“International Law will not allow them to be bought to justice.”
So before we even get to Comet Ping Pong & James Alefantis, let’s recap:
A huge global pedophilia network has operated since at least 1980
This pedophilia ring reaches to the very highest levels of church & state
Previous investigations have been silenced by federal & local law enforcement
The Podesta e-mails are LOADED with obvious & known pedophilia code words
The Podesta’s enjoy attending satanic rituals like “Spirit Cooking”
The Podesta’s have bizarre taste in art associated with satanic rituals
The Podesta brothers highly resemble suspects at a child abduction crime scene
The Podesta’s are connected and active at the HIGHEST levels of government
JAMES ALEFANTIS AND COMET PING PONG
Let’s have a look at James Alefantis, the owner of Comet Ping Pong pizza parlor in Washington DC:
For starters, James Alefantis appears to be a pseudonym cipher designed to resemble “J’aime les enfants,” which means “I love children” in French.
He is also well connected with the Podestas & the Clinton Campaign:
And GQ magazine named him one of the “50 most powerful people” in Washington DC:
Now let’s look at some of his leaked Instagram posts, notice the comments for some context:
And who likes to share pictures of creepy torture rooms with the hashtag #murder?!?
And he clearly knows “Spirit Cooker” Marina Abramovic, who by the way is apparently age 70:
“Ping pong in London sounds tempting”??? Seems like an expensive game of Ping-pong and what’s with the drugs”?!? He was smart enough to turn the label so you can’t see what the drug is:
“Chicken Lovers” is a term that means “An adult male homosexual sexually attracted to underage males. Used somewhat derogatorily:
“Why does Daddy like BUTT?”:
James Alefantis defended this photo on Fox News, saying the parents were there and they did this:
“I Love Children” and “Who are these guys?” “You know”:
What you just saw above were all posts from James Alefantis.
The first five posts below appear to be from employees as the posts say Comet Ping Pong on them, and the very last one (lower right) does have a response from Alefantis:
Before we go inside Comet Ping Pong, lets take a look at this unclassified FBI document about pedophilia symbols. Remember that satanists and people into the occult are really into symbols:
Now let’s check out Comet Ping Pong, one of the restaurants James Alefantis owns in Washington. We’ll also take a look at some of some of the other businesses in the area, as they all appear to be interconnected in some way:
Here’s the Comet menu, which has a logo of two ping-pong paddles on it that looks very similar to the FBI-identified logo for Child Lover. The wooden handles form a very clear Maltese/Templar cross, tilted sideways. There is also a subtsuggestion of a human face that has been blindfolded – white strip over the two circular paddles – and gagged, as seen in the X. The “blindfold” over the paddles say “Play – Eat – Drink”. This may be an acronym for PED – i.e. pedophile:
Notice the corner symbols used in the exterior sign. The crescents and stars in the Comet logo are familiar to dark scholars, as they appear around images of Baphomet, the goat-horned god. The corners also resemble the wings. Remember, Satanista are obsessed with symbols:
Inside they have unusual “all ages” live entertainment in the evenings, check out some of the
posters. The last one is billed as an “Exorcism,” note the two slices of pizza groping each other:
On the walls of the club, we see strange art and writing on the walls. Here’s the “Recreation Room.” Notice the painting behind the ping-pong players, shown close up on the right below. It features being holding the dismembered heads of smaller beings:
Here’s another painting on the wall, with a man that appears to be ejaculating while playing ping pong with a smaller being. Also notice “Shut up n’ fuck” written on the upper left. According to a recent interview with Alefantis, these images have since been removed:
Following are paintings from an art exhibition at Comet Pizza:
And some info on Kim Noble, the artist of the paintings above:
Revelations From Hackers at 4Chan
Hackers on 4Chan claimed to have found a secret area of encrypted videos on the Comet Pizza
Although they could not de-encrypt the videos, they were able to extract an image with text on it that provided instructions to those who were accessing the videos.
The instructions used code language to discuss an app that viewers would download and use one time only.
When the disclaimer said “each image below is available for $1,000 in fine print,” you most likely have to add a zero to get the price they are charging for a captured child.
“We have 4 surviving pizzas from last month’s session, all are on sale at an extremely low price, as they are in poor health and not expected to survive so a requirement is that you finish eating your pizza after your session.”
“This month’s special includes a 30% discount on torture”:
Another pizza place just a few doors down from Comet Ping Pong is Besta Pizza. “Besta” means “Beast” in Portuguese. You remember Portugal, where the Pedo brothers are exact matches to the child abduction suspect drawings? And the Besta logo is the same as the FBI’s “Boy Lover” symbol. Once the investigation revealed the meaning of their logo, the company changed it on their website, even while the original was still visible in their menu:
Across the street from the two key pizza places is a bistro called Terasol. Up until recently, Terasol had the Girl Love logo prominently displayed on their website, right below a picture of a celebrity guest who just ran for President. Notice the smaller hand inside the larger hand, inside the FBI “Girl Lover” logo:
POLITICS & PROSE
The newly-altered version of the Besta Pizza logo has also appeared on the Politics & Prose
Bookstore website, another business on the same block that has been implicated just since
Pizzagate began. This business is apparently owned by Hillary’s speechwriter.
As revealed on Wikipedia, the Politics & Prose storefront has the “Little Boy Lover” logo written into the ampersand (&) symbol in the middle of the title:
BLACKWATER FOUNDER ERIK PRINCE’S STUNNING “REVEAL”
On November 4 th 2016, Breitbart News featured a very significant article entitled “Erik Prince: NYPD Ready to Make Arrests in Anthony Weiner Case”:
As we read further in this key Breitbart article, we hear that the mayor of NYC wanted nothing to
do with the 650,000 new emails, and the NYPD feels they are proof of “great evil”:
“As for [ Bill de Blasio, ] the mayor of New York City, [Blackwater founder Erik] Prince said he has heard that “de Blasio wants to stay away from this.”
“The [new Clinton email] evidence is so bad, the email content is so bad, that I think even [de Blasio] wants to stay away from it, which is really telling,” he said….
“For any cop that is aware of this level of wrongdoing, and they have veterans in their family…they owe it to them to stand up… and shine the light of truth on this great evil.”…
“This is stuff coming right off a hard drive that was owned by Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closest adviser for the last 20 years,” he said of the new bombshells.
“This is not from some hacker or anybody else. This is a laptop seized from a warrant in a criminal investigation.”…
“This kind of evil, this kind of true dirt on Hillary Clinton – look, you don’t have to make any judgments. Just release the emails,” [Erik Prince] urged.
“Just dump them. Let them out there. Let people see the light of truth.”

WHAT ABOUT BREITBART?
On February 4th , 2011, Andrew Breitbart tweeted, “How prog-guru John Podesta isn’t [a] household name as [a] world class underage sex slave op cover-upper defending unspeakable dregs escapes me.”
Then, a year later, all throughout February 2012, Breitbart telegraphed the release of a video that
he said would appear on March 1st.
This video, he claimed, would be severely damaging to Obama’s re-election campaign. “Wait till
they see what happens March 1st,” he said.
Right before the anticipated release, on February 28th, 2012, he tweeted, “How much longer until
they kill me (“heart attack” or “car accident”) or frame me for a crime? Read me while you can.”
Andrew died of an alleged heart attack on March 1st, 2012—just two days later. Coincidence?
The coroner who conducted the investigation died of arsenic poisoning just two months later. It’s not that hard to figure out what happened here.
David Wilcock and his team at DivineCosmos.com found a digital copy of issue 14 of “Modern Boylover” magazine, which has no explicit pictures, while searching for the FBI document on
It appears to have been saved there as further evidence to be used in investigations. It is not at all
something they recommend reading due to the “creep factor,” which is off the charts.”(29)
The triangular Boylover logo appears all throughout the magazine, including the logo for KBLR (BoyLoveR) radio:
The following pages are excerpts from Modern Boylover Magazine:
Here’s an article about where to take your Young Friend(YF), and it ends with the topic of pizza:
“For those many citizen journalists who are in the know, Pizzagate was immediately recognized as the scandal that will literally take down the U.S. Federal Government, after it dissolves the Democratic Party.
This epic and rapidly unfolding crime spree has all the elements to incriminate many leading politicians and D.C. power-brokers, well-known globalists and Beltway lobbyists. Truly, this is the scandal that the American people have been waiting for.
Of all the scandals that end in “Gate”, it is the Pedophilia Pizzagate that has the potential to do the most damage to the existing criminal power structure that was shoehorned into power in Washington D.C. by the World Shadow Government (WSG).
The political power structure that has been recently dominated by the Podestas and Pelosis, the Obamas and Clintons, the Reids and Ryans has been fastidiously kept in check via an extremely effective strategy that irreversibly compromises and corrupts the political class. Of course, this is done by setting up the politician with lurid sex crimes, especially those that involve child sexual abuse and trafficking.
Even many good politicians are lured into attending an event that is presented in one fashion, only for them to be treated to a Satanic child sex ritual late in the night when they should have been home in bed. Their very attendance at such a scandalous crime scene allows them to be blackmailed and/or bribed over the rest of his or her political career.
Do you see how Congress is forever kept in perfect check by their globalist overlords, Zionist plotters and Jesuit masters? And why Congress never really investigates itself or prosecutes the President, except to root out the really good guys and gals.
The recent exposure of Pizzagate has changed the whole Washington control dynamic. With each odious revelation this secret sub-culture within the Beltway has been exposed in ways that are both shocking and earth-shattering. Citizen reporters who are researching this story are zealous and resolute in their journalistic pursuit of the truth. Many of them have children and will not let this multi-decade crime spree go unreported, in all of its grisly detail.
But have you noticed how Pizzagate completely dropped out of the news.
It’s clear that many alternative websites have been threatened by those is high places to drop any comment on this topic.
And the current focus on Hollywood, helps move the spotlight away from the rampant pedophilia going on on D.C. and other centers of power.
For those who are uninitiated in this realm of pedophilia in the corridors of power, the following links will provide a quick primer for what is about to explode in the mainstream media (MSM). Yes, the WSG has been extremely successful in keeping these sordid details out of the MSM, as they did with the Franklin scandal many years ago, but there wasn’t an Internet back then.
Some additional videos to watch:
Then there are these recent important exposés:
Huge Breakthrough in D.C. Pedophilia Ring
NYPD Threatens To Expose Massive D.C. Pedophilia Ring—Clintons, Congressmen and Other VIPs Implicated
The Podesta Pedophilia Scandal Just Keeps Growing
DC PizzaGate: A Primer UPDATED 11/9
Engaged citizen journalism around the world is going full force and the globalists and elites are getting nervous. We are uncovering hard circumstantial evidence that needs to be followed up by law enforcement authorities who have not, themselves, been corrupted by the pedophile blackmail that has engulfed our world. People, especially those who have been involved with the child pornography-sex scandal-satanic rituals blackmail and pizza parties need to start coming forward as humanity cannot make spiritual progress as long as these satanic forces lurk behind compromised politicians, government officials, church and community leaders, and, most especially, the elite who continue to rule and enslave We The People from their lofty thrones of power and money.
Citizen journalists (CJs) have uncovered a tremendous amount of information since the story of Comet Ping Pong was released. The question is whether there is anyone left in LAW ENFORCEMENT that has not been blackmailed, co-opted, or life-threatened to make a simple inquiry into the U. S. Passport Office that will begin to solve this crime.
We want to know what in the hell is happening in this country that demons have law enforcement, politicians, and officials so compliant to their evil that children are being sacrificed upon their altars in the worship of Satan. Is there anyone in the FBI and NYPD that has the morality and decency to bring these matters to light?”(27)
Is Pedophilia and Human Trafficking the New Normal?
“This information and list of articles, which is not complete by any means, leaves out countless incidents around the world. Just internet search for pedophilia and human trafficking in your country or state and see how prevalent the practices are for yourself. If citizen journalists do not speak up and educate others on these heinous crimes, then prepare yourself for a world where your own child might be the next JonBenet Ramsey or Madeline McCann. And no one—government officials, law enforcement, the media, or the Church—will care!
This type of evil illnesses is rampant, especially with those who seek power in politics or law enforcement. No Catholic church or school is immune from the new type of scrutiny we must have to identify those who would harm children. No government agency or religious organizations can be trusted “on the surface.”(23)
“Dedicated to all the children out there, who as you read this are locked away somewhere awaiting their next torture session, gang rape, or ritual sacrifice.
So as we enjoy our lives of comfort & ease, we must never forget this goes on everyday, and we must not stop until we put and end to it and the perpetrators are brought to justice.”(29)
