January 15 2022 — On January 15 2001, Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger launched Wikipedia. This phenomenon is the world’s 15th most popular website in terms of overall visitor traffic, with a worldwide monthly readership of approximately half a billion. And, for obvious reasons, the spooks love Wikipedia. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY
Many years ago, I found out that Western agencies were editing Wikipedia. And thus, every year on this day, I have been telling you to be careful about what you read and what you hear.
For sure, I could repeat the message one more time. After all, repetition is the art of education. But this year, I would like to do something different.
At first, this grumpy old man thought that he would rant about Wikipedia refusing to admit that I coined the “Havana Syndrome” expression.
But the time for this has not come yet… [No worry. The time will come.]
RELATED POST: Havana Syndrome — Chris Carter [X-Files] : “I Believe the Havana Syndrome and your government denied it.” [Intel Today : What was the motive of these attacks? Here is a plausible scenario.]
Instead, I will ask you to think about a completely different subject. At least, it seems like a completely different subject.
In retrospect, it is hardly surprising that Western agencies were editing Wikipedia. Most readers of this Blog probably understand and agree with that reality.
Basically, smart people nowadays agree that Wikipedia is a reasonable source of information as long as you stay away from the subjects which I cover in my blog. [Intelligence & Terrorism]
Are you so sure? Allow me to challenge your certitudes… Have you ever heard about Operation “On Wings of Eagles”
Operation “On Wings of Eagles”
Between June 1949 and September 1950, 49,000 Yemenite Jews were moved to the new state of Israel.
For the next 7 decades, these people have claimed that their children have been abducted by the State of Israel.
And for that many years, they have always been ridiculed as conspiracy theorists.
In 2016, more than 200 thousand documents were released and proved that these people had told the truth all along. Most of these kids (several thousands) were sold to Russian Jews.
But the story does not end there…
Many of these children were used for illegal — and despicable — medical experiments. Most of them died. [Please, keep in mind that these experiments were illegal on every single ground: moral, ethical, legal and religious.]
What were those Jewish medical doctors trying to find out?
WHY do Yemenite Jews have such a strong heart?
Many Yemenite Jews move to Israel in the 1930’s. The second wave came 20 years later during Operation “On Wings of Eagles”. In 1954, Aharon Cohen — an Israeli physician — made a very simple observation.
The first group had a diabetes rate similar to other Israeli and Westerners. But almost none of the newcomers were showing signs of the disease.
And of course, the same disparity was observed for hypertension and heart diseases…
These people had the same genes. Most often, the people from the second wave came to reunite with their families. How could this be possible?
The answer was obvious. The Jews living in Yemen had a completely similar lifestyle. But there was a singular difference. They did not eat sugar.
Contrary to what the Wikipedia page states, there never was a difficulty of finding populations for use as controls that consume little or no sugar.
Be careful about what you read and what you hear. Be also very careful what you drink and eat. As a wise guy noticed long ago: “You are what you eat.”
PS — Last year, the Israeli government expressed regret and understanding of the suffering caused to the families.
“The time has come that the families whose babies were taken from them receive recognition from the state and the Israeli government and also compensation,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement.
There was no official apology for what remains one of the most controversial and sensitive issues in Israeli society. To this day, Wikipedia completely denies the Yemenite children affair. [Operation Magic Carpet (Yemen) — Wikipedia]
Israel’s missing Yemenite children
Today we know that the story is true. As you watch this old video, observe how the “Good Professor” ridicules the victims as conspiracy theorists. “It started as a rumor. Later on, it became a myth. There is simply no evidence.”

Operation Magic Carpet (Yemen) — Wikipedia
According to some testimony, there was a suspicion that the state kidnapped healthy Yemeni children, for adoption, and then informed the parents they had died. As a result, some decades later, the Yemenite Children Affair exploded, in which it was rumoured that something of the order of 1,000 children had gone missing. However, in 2019, Yaacov Lozowick, the former Israel State Archivist, explained the cases of the missing Yemenite babies in an article in Tablet magazine. There was a very high death rate, and disturbed medical professionals, he said, autopsied some of the bodies to try to find out why. Traditionally, autopsies were forbidden under Jewish law, and so this was hidden from the parents. Lozowick wrote that the files contained no evidence of any kidnappings.
