  • Elder of Ziyon
I just happened across a blog by Joachim Martillo called "Ethnic Ashkenazim Against Zionist Israel."

In it, he makes the incredibly bizarre assertion that Chabad is a worldwide network of spies, and that the Holtzbergs were Mossad agents:
There is an even more sinister aspect to the Lubavitcher organization.

Because Lubavitcher outreach offices are located in some of the most important political, corporate and university centers throughout the world, the Lubavitchers have put together a network that is incomparable for corporate and international espionage as well as for the secret exchange of information. Because Chabad Houses could potentially act as safe houses, where there would be no record of a person's stay, the Lubavitcher outreach network is far superior to that of Aish HaTorah for covert operations.

Most people do not take the Lubavitchers seriously, but I have visited Chabad houses and encountered senior Israeli government or military officials (and probably intelligence agents). One can easily imagine that Neocon intelligentsia trying to develop a relationship with Hindutva (हिन्दुत्व) intelligentsia or politicians might have used the Chabad Nariman House as a meeting place.

Because the Lubavitchers provide an unconditional welcome to all Jews in the hope of bringing them closer to the Lubavitcher way of life, not only have the Lubavitchers been open to potential subversion by Israeli intelligence organizations, but in general Mossad and Shin Bet have found it quite easy to penetrate the haredi community as the two organizations managed to do both in Israel and also in the USA...

To Zionize haredi groups that practice outreach, the Israeli government need only give encouragement to Zionistically indoctrinated Hebrew-speaking young people to participate in outreach programs, and in a few years the targeted haredi community is thoroughly enmeshed in Zionist thinking while Israeli intelligence organizations have a new crop of saya`nim in place ready to serve in Zionist covert operations.

The Lubavitcher shluchim (outreach emissaries) Gavriel Noach and Rivkah Holtzberg fit the saya`an profile to a "T" -- especially Rivkah.

If the Israeli government wanted to put someone into a place with more direct influence over the leadership over the Lubavitchers or another Charedi group, it is just a matter of training agents with the proper intellectual skills to pose as hozrim bitshuvah (returnees). Within a few decades, Israeli intelligence would be running a large easily mobilized Charedi community while the ordinary haredi members would not have a clue.
Who is Joachim Martillo?

I used to read Usenet in the late 1980s, and Martillo was an active poster in various groups. In the beginning, he represented himself as a Sephardic Jew with an overwhelming hatred for Arabs and Ashkenazi Jews. For example, in this message from 1990:
In practically every way, Palestinians are a thoroughly dispicable
community whose bigotry and fanaticism prevents them from joining
the modern world and who deserve much worse punishment than they
are receiving (apparently mostly at their own hands -- poetic
justice or the cunning of history, if I have ever seen it).
And this from 1985: (when he sometimes spelled his name Yakim:)
>(2) Ashkenazik customs are inferior to Sephardic customs
> with regard to expressing Jewish sentiments or beliefs.

At least in tefillah and probably in other regards this is halakah.
You may check the responsa of Jacob of Emden (an Ashkenazi), ii, 15.
Luzzato holds similar opinions. I believe the Vilna Gaon also
expressed this opinion but I am not certain. Nathan Adler in Germany
considered Ashkenazi pronunciation erroneus.
At some point in the mid-90s, though, Martillo (then calling himself by many variants, including Juan Carlo Santos Martillo Ajami) claimed to have never been Jewish. He became rabidly anti-Zionist, which he remains today, having posted long, unintelligible articles in major anti-semitic and anti-Zionist websites.

He apparently is quite a TCP/IP network guru.

He married a Muslim woman in 2002, who would say things like "don't trust any kaffirs" while at the same time pretending to be an activist for social justice.

He quotes both Pirkei Avot and the Quran on his blog.

The guy is proof positive that a high IQ and a great deal of knowledge - which he clearly has - does not mean that one has any sense.

(Why he identifies himself now as an ethnic Ashkenazi is anyone's guess.)

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money.

I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
