John Roy Carlson, the pen name of Avedis Boghos Derounian,  made a name of himself by infiltrating and exposing a number of Nazi and other groups in the 1930s and 1940s.

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. For over 14 years and 30,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. 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.
