What exactly is the Pizzagate Scandal

I have to admit, I could never have done this without the help of Doug Mare. I have to admit too, apart from general references to the email shenanigans regarding Hillary Clinton, for some reason I’ve devoted little time to the Podesta emails & the ensuing ‘Pizzagate’ monstrosity. Perhaps it’s because I’ve concentrated on the UK pedophile scandal & the fact the frustration of seeing it hit the front pages only for the senior officials named & shamed to somehow wriggle free from the clutches of the law even though there exists mountains of evidence against them.
How can it be? Victims who suffered the most horrific abuse as children have come forward & signed sworn affidavits. Some have even sat lie-detector tests in order to prove they were telling the truth. Many have been murdered for trying to do so! Add the fact all decent folk justifiably hold a particular loathing for these sexual perverts, so quite how those accused are never even charged, let alone imprisoned is positively mind-blowing. Of course, there’s a reason for everything.
There can be only one explanation – those who control our politicians ie the Rothschild Zionists, have from the outset realised the most subservient officials are the ones with the most to hide. In his brilliant radio broadcast ‘Exposing the Illuminati & the CFR’ in 1967, Myron Fagan outlined how Adam Weishaupt spent 6 years drawing up his master plan for the Illuminati New World Order. This he completed in 1776. His instructions centered around the following methods in order to control people….
1) Use monetary and sex bribery to obtain control of men already in high places, in the various levels of all governments and other fields of endeavor. Once influential persons had fallen for the lies, deceits, and temptations of the Illuminati they were to be held in bondage by application of political and other forms of blackmail, threats of financial ruin, public exposure, and fiscal harm, even death to themselves and loved members of their families.
2) The faculties of colleges and universities were to cultivate students possessing exceptional mental ability belonging to well-bred families with international leanings, and recommend them for special training in internationalism, or rather the notion that only a one-world government can put an end to recurring wars and strife. Such training was to be provided by granting scholarships to those selected by the Illuminati.
3) All influential people trapped into coming under the control of the Illuminati, plus the students who had been specially educated and trained, were to be used as agents and placed behind the scenes of all governments as experts and specialists. This was so they would advise the top executives to adopt policies which would in the long-run serve the secret plans of the Illuminati one-world conspiracy and bring about the destruction of the governments and religions they were elected or appointed to serve.
4) To obtain absolute-control of the press, at that time the only mass-communications media which distributed information to the public, so that all news and information could be slanted in order to make the masses believe that a one-world government is the only solution to our many and varied problems.
For those who wish to learn more, here’s the whole 2 & 1/2 hour broadcast…. 

 

 

In this case No.1 & 4 stand out like a sore thumb. But how do such an inordinate number of sexual deviants end up in the upper echelons of power? Simple. The ones with the most filth in the closet are the ones singled out for preferential treatment. This is where the media comes in. Media barons only have to give the nod. As a result certain candidates are made to look good. Nothing derogatory is ever said about them while their opponents are given a hard time. This way new recruits make their way into Parliament or Congress with the most capable destined to rise up the proverbial ladder of power. This is how so many child molesters end up in the last place we need them!
Just to give you one example of how the scum of the earth are not only protected by the media & the courts, here’s a classic example of how a good-for-nothing toe-rag became our Prime Minister. If the public ever knew the truth, this would never have happened. I’m talking about none other than Tony Charles Lynton Blair! Check out the 4th paragraph in the piece below…..
George Michael RIP: Now you know why the media told you what they didGeorge Michael RIP: Now you know why the media told you what they did
So now back to Pizzagate & the DNC, Podesta & Clinton emails that thanks to Wikileaks were published. I promised Doug I’d do the best job I could highlighting this outrage. Most of us may be aware criminals are calling the shots but if ever there was one reason why we’re in such a mess, here it is. The ugly, undeniable truth is – we really do have the worst possible people in the corridors of power. Initially, what raised eyebrows were the odd words & phrases being used. For instance…..

“you left a very important pizza map at my place.”

“I found your handkerchief. Come get pasta & ice cream on Wednesday. It’s walnut!”

“I so love cheese, the best cheese costs extra.”

pizzagate-code

So it was evident a code was being utilised. it was noted that gay males used what was called “handkerchief code” to subtly advertise their sexual preferences & that the BDSM community (Bondage Discipline Sadism Masochism) often did likewise. Pretty quickly, there were posts on 4chan & Reddit in the /pol/ sections inquiring about the odd phraseology & the importance of cheese, pizza, pasta, sauce etc. in the Podesta & DNC Wikileaks.

 

An anonymous poster on 4chan said the NYPD had uncovered vast info regarding pedophilia on Anthony Wiener’s personal laptop. This vermin had been busted for sexting with minors on many occasions. Weiner, as well as winning 7 terms as a Democrat, was the husband of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin.

 

“Pizzagate”: How 4Chan Uncovered the Sick World of Washington’s Occult Elite

https://matrixbob.wordpress.com/2016/11/26/what-is-pizzagate-video/
Then there’s James Alefantis, owner of Comet Pizza. He was referenced multiple times in the leaked emails. A peek at his then-public Instagram showed many pictures involving children, blood & creepy captions such as a photo of a retarded little girl with the description that she was a ‘hotard’ (combination of whore & retard). Researchers came up with a code key based on child porn cases & hankie code. Viewed with the key the emails depicted some TRULY scary stuff. Relating link….

 

https://steemit.com/personsofinterest/@ausbitbank/persons-of-interest-james-achilles-alefantis-aka-jimmycomet-at-comet-ping-pong

 

Public articles on Podesta & his brother along with emails showed a strong connection with an obscure artist named Marina Abramović. She specializes in creepy kid stuff, quasi-Satanic stuff & bad poetry etc. Incredible as it seems, sponsorship money came from the DNC, the Clinton Foundation & Washington DC for her “performance art” which includes something called “spirit cooking”. This was also referenced in those emails. More research ensued & cannibalism was discovered not merely in poetic prose but also in reality. Be warned. Some of the material in this link is enough to make you throw up!

 

http://wearechange.org/spirit-cooking-disturbing-podesta-email-yet-warning-graphic-content/
Research into the Podestas showed they might be the kidnappers of a little girl in the UK. Also on display John Podesta’s brother had a giant statue in his foyer of a headless corpse which depicted one of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims, calling it “a wonderful icebreaker & a way to feel out guests.” It snowballed from there as more & more people noted new evidence & connected more dots.

 

The pizza parlor down the street from Comet Pizza, a place called Besta Pizza, was raided by authorities & their computers seized. Their logo at that time was the triangle spiral which had been identified by the FBI a decade earlier as symbolizing a fetish for little boys. Comet Pizza (actually named Comet Ping Pong) was long known for “all ages” late night shows featuring child bands & adult bands with pedophile themes in their lyrics. It became clear this was their code. Connections between Abramović, the Podestas, the Clintons, Obama, Biden, the DNC & many influential people also using the code shows how deep this scandal is.

 

pizzagate
People began investigating Comet Pizza & in no time found themselves turfed out by Alefantis & the manager for being unfamiliar faces there. It’s worth noting that this pizza joint owner was listed as one of the top 50 bigwigs in all of Washington DC. Reddit’s CEO began censoring the thread & eventually banned it. Twitter followed suit. Google buried it. True to form, the mainstream media then began bitching about “fake news”, condemning the story.

 

Surprise, surprise – a false flag event soon followed where a man walked into the pizzeria with firearms, allegedly threatening people & firing a shot into the floor. This needless to say went global as an example of why “fake news” was dangerous. This event was actually used by Congress & Obama to gut the First Amendment with last-minute legislation post-election that fully entrenched the legality of propaganda & eliminated press protection. How often have I referred to the way Zionists love to kill two birds with one stone?

 

True to form, everything was blamed on “Russian hackers”. This was the lame excuse given to justify the necessity of this legislation. After doing all they could to kill the Pizzagate story, the evidence, nevertheless, continues to mount. Finally a mainstream reporter named Ben Swann, noted for his honesty & journalistic integrity, put out a video report explaining how this scandal was anything but fake news. Just days later he vanished, closing & deleting all his social media accounts, leaving a brief explanation “It’s okay, I’ll be back on Feb 1st”…… He’s not back yet. Here’s a link regarding this. Let’s hope & pray Ben is okay. If anything bad has happened to that guy there’s going to be an eruption!

What’s crucial is understanding the role of the media. It’s a cast-iron certainty we wouldn’t have this diabolical situation if the media was independent. These are the sickest people on earth yet the entire MSM are pedophile protectors as are Prime Ministers & Presidents. This is why this problem is so widespread. Thankfully, once again activists are highlighting this scandal. However, as the link below says…..

‘The mainstream media and those implicated are bombarding the subject with speculation, divisiveness, and most importantly, pure misinformation. In spite of all this, there are still serious scholars, researchers, journalists, law enforcement agencies, and governments courageously pursuing the subject.’

http://pizzagate.wiki/Main_Page

Looking at some of the statistics about missing children in this link left me speechless. I promise you, that takes some. What is staggering is how widespread this filth is & inevitably it involves very well-to-do folk! The mind boggles. There’s hard evidence too Palestinian kids are part of this, stolen & sold into the “trade” & parted out for organs when their novelty expires. They’re certainly not the only ones & most probably not the bulk. White kids in the USA disappear every single day, sometimes several in a day. Like I said, it’s truly monstrous. Finally, this deleted video – “Joe Biden is a Pedo: The Inconvenient Truth of Pedophiles in our Government…..

    I have been following/researching (within my scope & talents) this for months Michael some of the details & proof so horrifying/difficult to absorb,I’ve had to take regular breaks from the topic. Infuriating that these vile elites continue to ‘shove it in our face’ & more importantly,their victims.
    James Alefantis has directly threatened some researchers & their kin,with death if they continue to ‘decharacterise/harass’ him. A classic case of the socio/psychopathic mask dropping when they are about to be exposed publicly.
    The connections & triangulation amongst this scum,is boggling & seemingly infinite at times. I believe Trump will investigate them all & that progress is occurring behind the scenes in regards to future arrests.
    The information you have posted is all correct & valid,but unfortunately just the tip of the iceberg. A sickening & horrific descent down the rabbit hole,but if you can stand it please keep following pizzagate.

    You may also be interested in reading about & contacting Fiona Barnett here in Australia. A victim of satanic ritual abuse by the elite as a child..a courageous survivor who continues to endure death threats directed at herself & her family to this day. Antony Kidman was one of her abusers,he failed in ‘shutting her up’ & in turn ‘died in mysterious circumstances’.

    • Thank you Fiona. Yes it’s incredible how they shove it in our faces. It’s almost as if they want us to know what they do so that when they side-step justice it’s like ‘up yours. We’ve got the power! Not you!’
      The chap who helped me put this together Doug Mare told me exactly what you said – this is only the tip of a massive iceberg. It’s as if the Rothschilds want everyone in positions of power to be totally under their control & the only way they can have that is by being able to totally destroy their lives. Anyone who jumps ship & comes forward will go through utter hell.
      It is also true in just about every major Western nation Pedophilia has been rampant among the most powerful, wealthy & influential people & has gone largely unpunished. I don’t know about too many individual cases. There’s one here where a lady, Melanie Shaw, came forward about how she was sexually abused as a child. She named names only for the Police to do nothing & the authorities to make out she was a mental case. Indeed so vast is this scandal, an activist can literally spend their entire time simply on this one topic.

      • Fiona Allison

        Thank you so much for your work & dedication Michael..I came across your website when GM died (was murdered),as a huge fan & someone fortunate enough to meet him briefly.the suddeness of his demise saddened me greatly & rang huge alarm bells.
        I went searching for answers & they came via you. Extremely grateful.

        • You’re most welcome Fiona. Even though I wasn’t a fan I still feel aggrieved I never knew the truth about this guy. It’s outrageous that my whole opinion of George Michael was based on a pack of lies told by the media. I think it should be a very serious crime when a person character is dragged through the & ability to earn money is seriously restricted just because some evil Zionists is allowed to fabricate lies. And to think our idiot Prime Minister wants to outlaw criticism of these crooks. We live in a crazy world.

  • Linda

    Someone was talking again about the cover up of this the other day and a woman replied that we were all stupid it had been debunked and cited the Wikipedia post on pizza gate. I told her any idiot can write on Wikipedia but here it is in all its Zionist trademark glory of rewriting the truth.. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pizzagate_conspiracy_theory. I hope Ben Swan is OK another beacon of truth attacked by these shit heads.

    • It’s amazing how they spring into action debunking the truth. One sometimes wonders what possesses these people to lower themselves like this & then they have to cover their tracks. It’s like we’re living a nightmare. God if we ever get round to being able to wipe the slate clean there is so much scum we have to eradicate.

    So glad you did an article on this. It is ‘Independent’ people like you Michael who will get this truth out. It appears that Independent journalists are rising by the day the more that MSM (main stream media) i.e. BBC, CCN, FOX etc. try to cover this up.

    • Thank you so much Lynne. I’ll say this – of all the topics I’ve covered, this one by far & away takes the most out of you. To know we live in such a sick world can be rather daunting.

  • Dave Strickland

    So all those videos which a certain Tory Smith put out on YouTube have been telling the truth, then? He’s now dead, I suspect murdered, But his videos are still there – or they were last time I looked. And what Tory Smith exposed is even worse than Pizzagate. Take note of what he says about the new POTUS VP.

    • Yes Dave. It may not be a central rule of thumb but it bloody well should be – when a whistle-blower dies in mysterious circumstances you can bet your bottom dollar that person not only was murdered but the okay came from high up! My post only scratched the surface. These people are completely demented.

    KOSHERGATE:

    “THE JEWISH TALMUD IS ONE OF THE WONDERS OF THE WORLD”!

    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…”

    SANHEDRIN, 55b-55a: “What is meant by this? – Rab said: Pederasty with a child below nine years of age is not deemed as pederasty with a child above that. Samuel said: Pederasty with a child below three years is not treated as with a child above that (2) What is the basis of their dispute? – Rab maintains that only he who is able to engage in sexual intercourse, may, as the passive subject of pederasty throw guilt (upon the actual offender); whilst he who is unable to engage in sexual intercourse cannot be a passive subject of pederasty (in that respect) (3). But Samuel maintains: Scriptures writes, (And thou shalt not lie with mankind) as with the lyings of a woman (4). It has been taught in accordance with Rab: Pederasty at the age of nine years and a day; (55a) (he) who commits bestiality, whether naturally or unnaturally: or a woman who causes herself to be bestiality abused, whether naturally or unnaturally, is liable to punishment (5).”
    This “divine truth” which “a whole people venerate” of which “not a single letter of it is missing” and today “is flourishing to such a degree as cannot be found in its history” is illustrated by the additional verbatim quotations which follow:

    SANHEDRIN, 69b “Our rabbis taught: If a woman sported lewdly with her young son (a minor), and he committed the first stage of cohabitation with her, -Beth Shammai says, he thereby renders her unfit for the priesthood (1). Beth Hillel declares her fit…All agree that the connection of a boy nine years and a day is a real connection; whilst that of one less than eight years is not (2); their dispute refers only to one who is eight years old.

    KETHUBOTH, 11a-11b. “Rabba said, It means (5) this: When a grown up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing, for when the girl is less than this (6), it is as if one puts the finger in the eye (7), but when a small boy has intercourse with a grown up woman, he makes her as `a girl who is injured by a piece of wood’ “.
    (footnotes) “(5). Lit., `says’. (6) Lit., `here’, that is, less than three years old. (7) Tears come to the eyes again and again, so does virginity come back to the little girl under three years.”

    KETHUBOTH, 11a-11b. “Rab Judah said that Rab said: A small boy who has intercourse with a grown up woman makes her (as though she were ) injured by a piece of wood (1). Although the intercourse of a small boy is not regarded as a sexual act, nevertheless the woman is injured by it as by a piece of wood(a dildo).”
    (footnotes) “(1) Although the intercourse of a small boy is not regarded as a sexual act, nevertheless the woman is injured by it as by a piece of wood.”

    Yo Michael,

    The argument in the Gospels is between a TORAH Jew, Jesus and TALMUDIC Jews, Pharisees (Matthew 15:1-9; Matthew ch 23).

    MOSES WAS A WAR CRIMINAL ON PAR WITH ISIS:

    We often hear people say, “If only Jews would return to the Law of Moses!
    “Instead, they follow their secular, atheistic, and Zionist ways!”
    They express horror at the recent deliberate slaughter of Gazans, particularly the slaughter of women and children. (1)
    But haven’t these folks ever read the Jewish Bible? Are they unaware of the influence of the Old Testament on Judaism?
    Please open your Jewish Bible. Turn to the Old Testament. For the moment, focus your attention on the Book of Numbers.
    You are about to learn that Moses, the great “law giver,” was a war criminal who ORDERED his followers to commit war crimes. The most heinous were crimes were committed against women and children.

    NUMBERS 31:13-18:
    (13) Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the community went to meet them outside the camp.
    (14) But Moses was furious with all the generals and captains who had returned from the battle.
    (15) “Why have you let all the women live?” he demanded.
    (16) “These are the very ones who followed Balaam’s advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the Lord at Mount Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the Lord’s people.
    (17) So kill all the boys and all the women who have had intercourse with a man.
    ( 18 ) Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.

    The rest of Chapter 31 is concerned with distributing the Midianite plunder. Thirty-two thousand (32,000) virgin girls were counted in the booty (Verse 35). Thirty-two of these were given to “the Lord.” That is, 32 of these little girls were set aside for the Levities (heave offerings), to be used as concubines (Verses 40 and 41).
    Yes, Numbers 31 says what it says. The Talmud sages used Numbers 31 to justify having sex with children. And since the Talmud sages, along with Christians, regard the Old Testament as “the word of God,” why beat up on the Talmud sages? Why not beat up on Jehovah and Moses, who set the standards?

    For further discussion of Jewish teachings on sex with children, see the Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Yebamoth 60b, Soncino 1961 Edition, page 402. Discussion and links at http://www.come-and-hear.com/editor/america_2.html
    It’s true. Moses was a war criminal. The Jewish Bible tells you so. Should we be surprised at how women and children were treated in Gaza?

    TORAH JESUS ENDORSES TORAH
    For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
    Matthew 5:18

    JESUS ENDORSED MOSES THE RAPINE MURDERER:
    “Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, in whom you have put your hope. 46 If you had believed Moses, you would believe Me, because he wrote about Me. 47But since you do not believe what he wrote, how will you believe what I say?”…
    John 5:45 47

    If you read Matthew 15:1-3 carefully, you will see that Jesus condemned the Pharisees for not obeying TORAH Law.

    Matthew 15:1-9

    1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,

    2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

    3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

    4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

        Yo Michael,

        The Jewish Bible is the source of the Vile!

        Watch how this parasite turns its victim into a zombie.

        Google: GENTILES IN HALACHA.
        Jews see Gentiles as subhuman.

        The First Protocol of the Elders of Zion can be read in TORAH, Genesis chapter 47.
        Read it without your ecclesiastic glasses and see the 3000 year old Modus Operandi of the Jews against Gentiles — MIDDLEMAN between the RULER and the RULED.

        EYES WIDE SHUT!

        There it was all the time and fools argued about the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

        The Jewish Bible has POLLUTED the minds of non-Jews and made zombies of them.

        SCHWARZ, JOSEPH:
        Palestinian geographer; born at Flosz, Bavaria, Oct. 22, 1804; died at Jerusalem Feb. 5, 1865. When he was seventeen years old he graduated as teacher from the Königliches Schullehrerseminar of Colberg, after which he joined his brother Israel at the University of Würzburg, where for five years he devoted himself to the history and geography of the Holy Land, and published a map of Palestine (1829; republished at Vienna, 1831, and Triest, 1832). It was his ardent desire, however, to study in Palestine itself the physical history and geography of the Holy Land, where his knowledge of Talmudic sources and early Jewish writers would be of more service. Accordingly he decided to settle in Jerusalem, whither he went in 1833. Schwarz then began a series of journeys and explorations in various parts of Palestine, to which he devoted about fifteen years.

        The results of his investigations and researches into the history, geography, geology, fauna, and flora of that country have placed him in the front rank of Palestinian explorers and geographers. HE IS THE GREATEST JEWISH AUTHORITY ON PALESTINIAN MATTERS SINCE ESTORI FARHI (1282-1357), the author of “Kaftor wa-Feraḥ.”

        HISTORY OF PALESTINE
        614-1096 C.E.
        From the Accession of the Mahomedans to that of the Europeans.
        By Rabbi Joseph Schwarz, 1850

        Rabbi Shallum, son of the then Resh Gelutha, in Babel, aka Abu Bachr al Chaliva al Zadik. Abu Bakr, became the first Caliph, and was in fact son of the then Resh Gelutha, in Babel, who perceiving a dreadful predicament, sent Rabbi Shallum to Mahomed, and told him to offer his submission, friendship, and services, and endeavour to enter with him into a friendly compact. Mahomed accepted Rabbi Shallum’s proposition with pleasure, conceived a great affection for him, and took his daughter, Aisha, a handsome young child, for wife; he made him also a general in his army, and gave him the name of Abu Bachr al Chaliva al Zadik, literally:

        The father of the maiden, the descendant of the righteous; this means, that of all his wives, who were either widows or divorced women, this one was the only one who had never been married before, and then she was the granddaughter of the celebrated chief of the captivity; therefore, the descendant of the righteous. This occurrence induced Mahomed to give up his terrible intention to destroy the Jews in his country, and thus did Rabbi Shallum save his people.

        ISLAMIC CRESCENT WAS ORIGINALLY A JEWISH SYMBOL

        Modern research on the Jewish Kingdom of Saudi Arabia “Himyar”, indicates that the Crescent was actually a Jewish symbol!

        Around 200 CE, Yehudah ha-Nasi compiled the Mishna from the various interpretative efforts and judicial compilations of the Rabbinic schools of the first and second centuries. The Roman government regarded Yehudah as their own paid government official with the status of Prefect, yet the government become increasingly antagonistic to the Jewish leadership. The government repeatedly attacked the Jewish calendar as a symbol of Jewish nationalism.

        The biblical calendar required witnesses of the new moon of each new month to appear before the Sanhedrin. In 358 CE, Emperor Theodosius forbade the Sanhedrin to assemble in reaction to previous Emperor Julian’s pro-Jewish stance. An arithmetic Jewish Calendar was adopted at clandestine and perhaps the Sanhedrin’s last meeting. Growing disunity over fixing of the Jewish calendar between the Jews of Syrian Antioch and of Palestine compelled the patriarch or Nasi, Rabbi Hillel II, to publish the astronomical calculations for regulation of the Jewish calendar. The Jews of Arabia, however, did not accept this ruling. They continued to require human sighting of moon and stars. Eventually, what started out as a rabbinic argument led to the use of crescent as an identifying political symbol. This crescent moon differed from the Sabaean moon symbol, in that it was tilted by approximately 45 degrees to reflect the way the moon would be observed by a “witness” to the new moon of the coming month.

        In 425 CE, Rabbi Gamliel VI, the last patriarch passed away. Rabbi Gamliel was a descendant of the Tanna, Hillel I (d. 10 C.E.), who was a descendant of King David. Rabbi Gamliel was a renowned physician and respected by the Emperor Theodosius II, however this did not prevent Theodosius II from abolishing the position of Nasi when he executed Gamliel for rebuilding synagogues without imperial permission. Gamliel died without a male heir, thus ending the last semblance of Jewish national organization in Israel.

        Qusai ibn Kilab ibn Murrah (Qusayy) (c. 400–480) was the great-great- grandfather of Shaiba ibn Hashim (Abdul-Mutallib, who had a Jewish wife). He was fifth in the line of descent to Muhammad, and attained supreme power at Mecca. Qusai is amongst the ancestors of Sahaba and the progenitor of the Quraish . When Qusai came of age, a man from the tribe of Khuza’a named Hulail (Hillel) was the trustee of the Kaaba, and the Na’sa (Nasi) – authorized to intercalate the calendar. Qusai married his daughter and, according to Hulail’s will, obtained these rights after him. He assembled a Sanhedrin “town hall”. Leaders of different clans met in this hall to discuss their social, commercial, cultural and political problems. Under the royal permission of Abu Karib As’ad Tubba’, Qusai reconstructed the Ka’aba from a state of decay, and had the Arab kahins (cohens) build their houses around it.

        There were three Calendars in use in Arabia.
        1. The mathematical calendar, imported from Babylon, used by the few Babylonian -Jewish refugees in Arabia.
        2. The intercalated calendar used by those Jews and pro-Muslims who followed Qusai’s council.
        3. And a strictly lunar calendar used by the Jorham who refused to accept any intercalation. This strictly lunar calendar was the official calendar between the time of Hillel (358 CE) until Qusai (440 CE).

        The Qur’anic Sura about the “splitting of the moon” refers to the divergence of the two calendars (intercalated and strictly lunar), in turn reflecting the split between Jews and proto-Muslims. The strictly lunar calendar was eventually reinstated in 622 CE, but the 45 degree crescent moon continued to symbolize the primacy of the Quraish, much as the dove symbolized the Tubba (Tobiad) kings of Himyar.

        There is no doubt that the founders of Islam saw themselves as true Jews, and offered their religion as an alternative form of Judaism. Islam was more similar to Judaism during the first two generations than it is today.
