Nazi/Anti-Semite Joran Jermas (aka “Israel Shamir”) Involved in Establishment of WikiLeaks

Julian Assange and Joran Jermas aka "Israel Shamir"

COMMENT: For some time, we’ve noted the Nazi, fascist and anti-Semitic elements associated with WikiLeaks. In the For The Record discussions of Carl Lundstrom (the financier who has largely underwritten Pirate Bay, inextricably linked with WikiLeaks), we have noted his participation in the same Swedish fascist milieu as Joran Jermas (“aka Israel Shamir”).

The assumption under which I have been operating posits Jormas/Shamir’s WikiLeaks’ involvement as an outgrowth of WikiLeaks’ relationship with the Pirate Bay milieu.

New disclosures (courtesy of Expo, founded by the late Stieg Larsson) indicate that it may have been Jermas/Shamir who steered WikiLeaks’ in the direction of the Lundstrom operation.

We have noted in a previous post that Julian Assange had known and worked with Jermas/Shamir for some time. Now, we learn that Jermas/Shamir was deeply involved in the set-up of the WikiLeaks’ operation in Sweden!

“Revealed: Antisemite was key to WikiLeaks Operation” by Martin Bright; Jewish Chronicle; 6/2/2011.

EXCERPT: The notorious antisemitic journalist Israel Shamir was actively involved in developing the WikiLeaks network – and was not just another freelance writer who happened to strike up a working relationship with the website’s founder Julian Assange, according to newly-revealed correspondence. [Italics are mine–D.E.]

Emails seen by the Swedish anti-racist magazine, Expo, demonstrate that the two men co-operated for several years. As early as 2008 Mr Shamir was asked to recommend potential associates in Sweden. [Italics are mine–D.E.] He suggested his own son, Johannes Wahlström: “He is a Swedish citizen, and lives in Sweden. Probably, he’ll be able to give advice about press freedom.”

Like his father, Mr Wahlström has developed a reputation for strident antisemitic views. In 2005, left-wing magazine Ordfront was forced to withdraw one of his articles, which argued that Israel controlled the Swedish media.

An email from June 2010 shows that Mr Shamir was still playing a part in the Swedish WikiLeaks network at that point. “I have a lot of good guys who can help to analyse the treasure and it would be good to start spreading the news,” he told Mr Assange. “I am now in Paris, and people want to know more! Tuesday I go to Sweden, and there is a whole operation for your benefit!” Mr Assange replied: “There certainly is! Tell the team to get ready. Give them my best. We have a lot of work to do.” . . .

  1. I’m sure that Jermas/”Shamir” is reading this page.

    Because it’s one of the only places on the Internet that’s outing him.

    And as a consequence, this website should/could be inflicting damage on Wikileaks’ contrived disinfo operation.

    Which only makes me very concerned (as usual) for the future of Dave & this website.

    Think about who we’re dealing with here. And who Stieg Larsson was dealing with.

  2. @R. Wilson: It’s not pleasant to think about it, but I guess we’ll have to prepare for the day Dave ends up getting stopped, if that day comes…….{Dear god, I hope not. =(}

  3. Julian Assange is a loser that could never make a living – hence WikiLeaks. As a runaway from justice, he will spend many years hiding in the London Ecuador embassy. As soon as the dictator Correa is kicked out, Assange will likely be kicked out of the embassy and delivered to Scotland Yard that in turn will deliver him to the CIA/FBI for a very extended holiday in an American jail.

    Joran Jermas is another loser that is trying hard to make a living by getting some change from the anti-Semitic cells that plague Sweden since World War II. Joran Jermas must suffer terribly seeing every morning how successful Israel, the Jewish State, is in all fields of life.

    Quite frankly, who cares what these and other demented guys of similar mentality say or think?
