“Everyone will deceive his neighbour and will not speak the truth; they have taught their tongue to speak lies; they weary themselves to commit iniquity.” Jeremiah 9:5
The term “False Flag” originally referred to pirate ships which flew flags of countries as a disguise to dissuade their victims from fleeing, or preparing for battle. Sometimes the flag of another country was used in order to blame an attack incorrectly on a targeted country. Today the term False Flag extends way past naval encounters to include countries and organisations that organise attacks on themselves and make the attacks appear to be made by their opponents.
Providing a Pretext
In this way, false flag operations seek to give a government the desired pretext for either domestic repression, or foreign military aggression. Covert government agencies frequently use civilian organisations to carry out operations which serve government interests.
Designed to Deceive
Definition: “False Flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations or other organisations which are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colours: that is flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False Flag operations are not limited to war and counter insurgency operations and have been used in peace time; for example, during Italy’s strategy of tension.
Violations of the Rules of Warfare
Although forbidden by the Geneva Convention and The Hague Rules of Warfare, False Flag Operations are pervasive. The Geneva Convention prohibits: “the feigning of an intent to negotiate under flag of truce, or of a surrender; feigning of an incapacitation by wounds or sickness; the feigning of civilian, non-combatant status; and the feigning of protected status, by the use of signs, emblems or uniforms of the United Nations or of neutral, or other states, or parties, to the conflict.” (Article 37). Under Article 38, it is prohibited to make improper use of the distinctive emblem of the Red Cross. Under Article 39, it is forbidden to make use of the flags, emblems, insignia or uniforms of neutral, or other, states not party to the conflict.
“You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another.” Leviticus 19:11
Documented Cases of False Flag Operations
There are many documented cases of false flag attacks where a government has carried out, for political purposes, a terror attack upon their own people and then falsely blamed its targeted enemy.
“…With their tongues they have practiced deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips.” Romans 3:13
The Great Fire of Rome
In AD 64, 19 July, two thirds of the city of Rome was burned down in a huge fire. Senior Roman leaders, including the Roman consul, Cassius Dio and historian, Suetonius, confirmed that the Emperor Nero sent out arsonists to start the fire because the Roman Senate had just rejected Nero’s application to clear 300 acres in central Rome so that he could build his extravagant palace complex. Nero then falsely blamed the Christians for starting the fire. This justified rounding up, brutally torturing and murdering many hundreds of Christians, including the apostles Peter and Paul.
“The truthful lip shall be established forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.” Proverbs 12:19
“Remember the Maine – Wage War on Spain”
In 1898 the highly suspicious explosion which sank the USS Maine warship in Havana Harbour, killing over 260 American seamen, sparked the Spanish American War which provided the USA the pretext to destroy the Spanish fleet and seize much territory, including the Philippines and Cuba.
“He who works deceit shall not dwell within my house; he who tells lies shall not continue in my presence.” Psalm 101
The Manchurian Incident
On 18 September 1931, Japanese troops set off a small explosion on a train track and blamed it on China, in order to justify their invasion of Manchuria. This is known as the Mukden Incident, or the Manchurian Incident.
The Pearl Harbour Myth
On Sunday morning, 7 December 1941, the Japanese launched a surprise attack on the US Fleet at Pearl Harbour, destroying the Pacific Fleet and forcing the United States into World War Two. Well, that is what we were taught at school. However, except for the date, everything about that narrative is a myth. The attack was not such a surprise and the Pacific Fleet was actually far from destroyed as the aircraft carriers were conveniently absent. Actually, the United States government had done everything they could to bring about that attack. US Ambassador to Japan, Joseph Grew, on 27 January 1941, wired Washington that Japan was preparing a surprise attack on the US Fleet at Pearl Harbour. 24 September 1941, a despatch from Japanese Naval Intelligence to Japan’s consulate general in Honolulu was deciphered. The transmission was a request for the grid of exact locations of US Naval ships in Pearl Harbour. Yet Washington chose not to share this information with the officers responsible for security at Pearl Harbour.
The Expected Attack
On 26 November the main body of the Japanese strike force (consisting of 6 aircraft carriers, 2 battleships, 3 cruisers, 9 destroyers, 8 tankers, 23 submarines and 5 midget submarines), departed Japan for Hawaii. Despite the myth of strict radio silence, US Naval Intelligence intercepted many despatches. Tokyo sent over 1,000 radio transmissions to the Attack Fleet before it reached Hawaii. The despatches left no doubt that Pearl Harbour was the target. Even on the night before the attack, US Naval Intelligence decoded a message pointing to Sunday morning, 7 December as the deadline for the attack. The message was delivered to military high command in Washington DC more than four hours before the attack on Pearl Harbour commenced. However this information was still withheld from the commanders at Pearl Harbour.
Eight-Step Plan to Provoke War
Having failed to provoke Germany by already selling over US$50 billion in war supplies to Great Britain, the Soviet Union, France and China, FDR switched focus to Japan. On 7 October 1940, one of Roosevelt’s military advisors, Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum, detailed an eight-step plan to provoke Japan into attacking United States. Over the next year, FDR implemented all eight of the recommended provocative actions, including complete oil embargo against Japan and effective economic warfare.
“These are the things you shall do: Speak each man the truth to his neighbour; give judgment in your gates for truth, justice and peace;” Zechariah 8:1
The Mainila Incident
Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev admitted that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939, in order to blame the attack on Finland, as a pretext for launching their Winter War against Finland. Russian president, Boris Yeltsin later confirmed that Russia had been the aggressor in the Winter War and that the shelling of Mainila was a false flag operation.
The Katyn Massacres
Russian leaders, Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin admitted that Soviet dictator, Josef Stalin, ordered the NKVD secret police to execute over 22,000 Polish officers and civilians in 1940 and falsely blame it on the Germans.
“Let the lying lips be put to silence, which speak insolent things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.” Psalm 31:18
Defenders of Palestine
The British government admitted bombing 5 ships transporting Jews from Europe to Palestine between 1946 and 1948, setting up a fake group, the Defenders of Palestine, to falsely claim responsibility for these bombings.
Bombings in Egypt
In 1954, Israel admitted launching a terrorist cell to operate in Egypt planting bombs in several buildings, including US Diplomatic facilities, leaving behind false “evidence” implicating Arabs as the culprits. When one of the bombs detonated prematurely, this enabled the Egyptians to identify the bombers and several of the Israeli agents confessed to this false flag operation.
The CIA admitted hiring Iranians in the 1950’s to pose as communists and stage bombings in Iran, in order to turn the country against its elected prime minister.
The Turkish prime minister admitted that the Turkish government carried out the 1955 bombing of a Turkish Consulate in Greece, also damaging the nearby birthplace of the founder of modern Turkey, blaming it on Greece, for the purpose of inciting and justifying anti-Greek violence.
Syrian Deception Operation
British prime minister, Harold MacMillan, admitted that both he and American president, Dwight Eisenhower, approved a CIA-MI6 plan in 1957 to carry out attacks in Syria and blame it on the Syrian government, as a way of effecting regime change
Terror Bombings in Europe
A former Italian prime minister, an Italian Judge and the former Head of Italian Counter Intelligence, admitted that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s in order to rally peoples’ support for their governments in Europe. “We had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people, far removed from any political gain. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security.” These terror attacks were carried out in Italy, France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, United Kingdom and other countries.
“…It is all full of lies and robbery. Its victim never departs.” Nahum 3:1
The Gulf of Tonkin Incident
The National Security Agency (NSA) admitted that it lied about what happened in the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964, manipulating data to make it look like North Vietnamese boats fired on US Battleships. This was to create a justification for American involvement in the Vietnam War.
Bombing of USS Liberty
On 8 June 1967, unmarked Israeli fighter jets and an unmarked torpedo boat, attacked the USS Liberty off the coast of Egypt with cannon fire, napalm, rockets and torpedoes. The attack started by jamming the ships’ emergency distress channel. They then targeted the communications to the ship, to prevent the Americans radioing for help. Sailors attempting to escape in life rafts were shot, to prevent any survivors from escaping. 34 Crewmen were killed and 174 wounded. Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, after a year investigating the incident, concluded that the attempted sinking of the USS Liberty was a failed false flag attack. Israel was attempting to blame Egypt for the attack, to persuade America to join in on their attack on Egypt. President Lyndon Johnson actually despatched nuclear armed fighter jets to drop nuclear bombs on Cairo, Egypt. These were only recalled when Johnson realised that it was the Israelis, not the Egyptians who had fired on the USS Liberty.
“…This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.” Jeremiah 7:2
False Flag Attacks on Cyprus
A Turkish general admitted that Turkish forces burned down a mosque on the Island of Cyprus in the 1970s to blame it on their Greek Christian enemy. He explained: “In special ways, certain acts of sabotage are staged and blamed on the enemy to increase pubic resistance. We did this in Cyprus; we even burned down a mosque.”
“You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.” Psalm 5:6
Setting Up Gaddafi
A Mossad agent admitted that, in 1984, Israeli agents planted a radio transmitter in Gaddafi’s compound in Tripoli, Libya, which broadcast fake terrorist transmissions, in order to frame Gadhafi as a supporter of anti-American terrorism and convince US President Ronald Reagan to bomb Libya.
“Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips and from a deceitful tongue.” Psalm 120:2
Massacres in Algeria
An Algerian diplomat and several officers of the Algerian Army admitted that, in the 1990s, the Algerian army frequently massacred Algerian civilians to blame on opponents of the state.
Provoking Riots in Indonesia
An Indonesian fact finding team investigating violent riots which occurred in 1998, determined that elements of their own military had been involved in the riots, some of which were deliberately provoked
The Oklahoma City Bombing
19 April 1995 the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building was destroyed in a devastating bombing which collapsed about one third of the building, killing 168 people (including 15 children), injuring more than 680 other people. The bomb blasts damaged 324 other buildings within a 16 block radius, shattered glass in 258 nearby buildings and burned out 86 vehicles. Damage estimated at US$652 million. A Noble Lie documents the web of deceit, inconsistencies and impossibility of the official version and presents damning evidence of a False Flag operation and cover up.
Some Examples of Proven False Flag Operations
Other False Flag attacks include:
the murder of the Turkish prime minister in 1960;
the bombings in Portugal in 1966;
the Piazza Fontana massacre in Italy of 1969;
the terror attacks in Turkey of 1971;
the Peteano bombings of Italy, 1972;
the shootings in Brescia, Italy and a bombing on an Italian train, 1974;
the shootings in Istanbul, Turkey, 1977;
the Atocha massacre in Madrid, Spain, 1977;
the abduction and murder of the Italian Prime Minister, 1978;
the bombing of the Bologna railway station, Italy, 1980;
the blowing up of a Russian apartment building in 1999 and blaming it on the Chechens;
the 2001 Anthrax attacks in the US;
the Indonesian Military killing of American teachers in Papua New Guinea and blaming it on a Papuan separatist group, in order to get that group listed as a terrorist organisation.
Saudi Controlled Chechen Terrorists
The highly respected writer for the Telegraph, Ambrose Evans – Pritchard, reported that the head of Saudi Intelligence, Prince Bandar, admitted that the Saudi government “controls the Chechen terrorists.”
Creating Chaos in Ukraine
Ukrainian officials admitted that Ukrainian snipers fired on both sides, to create maximum chaos, which led to the Ukrainian coup and civil war.
Chemical Weapons Attacks in Syria
8 April 2014, Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter, Seymour Hersh, published an expose revealing that the Turkish government carried out the chemical weapons attacks blamed on the Syrian government. Although a member of NATO, Turkey provided the Sarin chemical weapons. US president Obama attempted to use this pretext to launch America into full scale war against Syria. High level US intelligent officers confirmed that it was the US and Turkish-backed Rebels, not the Syrian government, which carried out the chemical weapons attacks.
“Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who deal truthfully are His delight.” Proverbs 12:2
Were the 9-11 Attacks Also False Flags?
There are those who claim that US government agencies were involved in the 9-11 terror attacks on Washington DC and New York City.
David Steel, formerly of US Marine Corp and the CIA, testified: “Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security forces. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.”
British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, declared: “The truth is, there is no Islamic Army, or terrorist army called Al-Qaeda and any informed Intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an intensified entity representing the devil, only in order to drive TV watchers to accept a unified international leadership for a ‘war against terrorism’. The country behind this propaganda is the United States.”
“Terrorism has replaced communism as the rationale for the militarisation of America, for military adventures abroad and for the suppression of civil liberties at home. It serves the same purpose, serving to create hysteria.” Howard Zinn
Global Criminal Enterprise Supporting Terrorism
“We are dealing with a criminal undertaking at a global level… and there is an ongoing war, it is led by the United States. It may be carried out by a number of proxy countries, which are obeying orders from Washington. The global war on terrorism is a US undertaking which is fake. It is based on fake premises. It tells us that somehow America and the Western world are going after a fictitious enemy, the Islamic State, when in fact, the Islamic State is fully supported and financed by Western military alliance and Americas allies in the Persian Gulf… They say these Muslims are terrorists, but it just so happens that these terrorists are Made in America… the global war on terrorism is a fabrication, a big lie and a crime against humanity.” Dr. Michael Chossudovsky, University of Ottawa’s Emetrias Professor of Economics (speech delivered at the International Conference of the New World Order)
Follow the Money
If one follows the money, one can see that the people with the most to gain from these attacks and wars occupied the key military and civilian positons and were instrumental in the covering up of the crimes.
“Study the history of false flag attacks used to manipulate the minds of the people! In individuals, insanity is rare, but in groups, parties, nations and epochs it is the rule!” Friederich Nietzsche
“The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.” Psalm 19:9
How to Persuade People to Support War
“Why of course the people don’t want war, but after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communistic dictatorship… Voice, or no voice, the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for a lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” Hermann Goering
Terrorism Prepares the Way for Oppression
“The easiest way to gain control of a country is to carry out acts of terror. The pubic will clamour for such laws if their personal security is threatened.” Josef Stalin
“The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9
