Mystery Disease Linked to Vanished Israeli Scientist

The recent outbreak of a life-threatening disease in the United States, caused by a new and exotic strain of a hypervirulent fungus, is baffling the US media and the scientific community. Speculations point to climate change as a possible explanation. However, according to journalist Hank P. Albarelli Jr., famous for having uncovered the 1951 CIA experiments with LSD in Pont St. Esprit (France), the answer is more likely to be found inside the Fort Detrick biological warfare center and in Israeli laboratories. A key figure in this enigma is apparently a dubious Israeli scientist allegedly connected to the Mossad.

Late last month, on April 24, media outlets across the Northwest United States began reporting that a strange, previously unknown strain of virulent airborne fungi that has already killed at least 6 people in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, is spreading throughout the region. The fungus, according to expert microbiologists, who have expressed alarm about the strain’s emergence, is a new genotype of Cryptococcus gatti fungi or C gatti. Cryptococcus gatti is normally found in tropical and subtropical locations in India, South America, Africa, and Australia. Microbiologists in the United States maintain that the strain found here, for reasons not yet fully understood, is far deadlier than any found overseas.

Physicians in the Pacific Northwest are reporting that an undetermined number of people in the region are ill from the effects of the strange strain. Physicians also say that the virulent strain can infect domestic animals as well as humans, and symptoms do not appear until anywhere from two to four months after exposure. Symptoms in humans include a lingering cough, sharp chest pains, fever, night-sweats, weight-loss, headaches, and shortness of breath. The strain can be treated successfully, if detected early enough, with oral doses of antifungal medication, but it cannot be prevented, and there is no preventative vaccine. Undiagnosed, the fungus works its way into the spinal fluid and central nervous system and causes fatal meningitis.

The estimated mortality rate is about 25 percent of 21 cases analyzed. Several newspapers and media outlets in the U.S. and overseas quote a researcher at Duke University’s Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Edmond Byrnes, as stating: “This novel fungus is worrisome because it appears to be a threat to otherwise healthy people. Typically, we see this fungal disease associated with transplant recipients and HIV-infected patients, but that is not what we are seeing.”

Microbiologists and epidemiologists studying the strain say the mystery fungus came from an earlier fatal fungus that was first found on British Columbia’s Vancouver Island in the fall of 2001, and perhaps as early as 1999. There the fungus infected and killed dogs, cats, horses, sheep, porpoises, and at least 26 people. The disease spreads through spores carried by breezes and wind and when people and animals encounter infected ground where the fungus is present. A number of microbiologists say that the disease has “the potential to essentially travel anywhere the wind or people can carry it.” Reads an alarming study authored in part by Duke University’s Edmond Byrnes: “The continued expansion of C. gatti in the United States is ongoing, and the diversity of hosts increasing.”

Several researchers in California also note that the Cryptococcus gatti fungus has been researched for decades, extending back to the 1950s, at the U.S. Army’s biological warfare center, Fort Detrick, in Frederick, Maryland. One microbiologist at the University of California at Los Angeles recounted that the fungus was first brought to the attention of Fort Detrick researchers by British scientists experimenting with the bark of eucalyptus trees from Australia. U.S. Army biological warfare reports obtained through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that beginning around 1952 the Army mounted a huge research program involving numerous plant and fungi products, and that well over three-hundred long-term contracts and sub-contracts were let with over 35 U.S. colleges and universities to carry out this multi-faceted research. Examples of this early research in California included experiments and projects at Camp Cooke; Port Huemene; Harpers Lake; Oceanside; and extensive experimentation with wheat stem rust and “various spores” including “several from tropical locations” and cereal rust spores and dyed Lycopodium spores. Several Army reports reveal that private sector corporations that participated or assisted in these projects were the American Institute of Crop Ecology; the American Type Culture Collection, Inc.; University of California research institutes; Bioferm, Inc.; and the Kulijian Corp.

The same microbiologist, who declined to speak on the record and who recounted extensive fungus work at Fort Detrick, also stated that researchers at Israel’s Institute for Biological Research, located in Ness-Ziona about 20 km from Tel Aviv, have worked with the Cryptococcus gatti fungus. He reports that mysterious Israeli-American scientist Joseph Moshe, 56 years old, may have conducted covert studies with the fungus while he was recently living in California. This report concerning Moshe is especially interesting because Moshe was briefly in the international spotlight in 2009 when he was the subject of a spectacular chase and arrest by the LA police department and SWAT team, assisted by the FBI, Secret Service, CIA, U.S. Army and several unidentified federal officials. That highly unusual arrest has never been fully explained to the media, and the whereabouts of Moshe has remained unknown since its occurrence. Compounding the mystery surrounding the Moshe case is that there is another scientist named Moshe Bar-Joseph who works in Israel at that country’s Agricultural Research Organization, whose area of expertise is plant pathology, and who looks remarkably like Joseph Moshe, except that he is about 20 years older.

Why Moshe was pursued and apprehended by the police is a largely unanswered question. According to the LA media, which recorded the entire incident by helicopter and ground cameras, Moshe claimed to be “a former Mossad microbiologist” who had telephoned a police dispatch number before his pursuit and had made “threatening statements about the White House and the president.” Reportedly, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan confirmed this when he spoke with several LA reporters.

On August 12, 2009, several LA police cruisers and an unmarked armored vehicle pursued Joseph Moshe driving his red VW automobile several miles through downtown LA before his car’s engine was reportedly knocked out by an electromagnetic pulse. Moshe refused to exit his car when ordered several times by the police, and after the driver’s window of his VW was smashed out by a robotic arm and several rounds of tear gas and pepper gas were fired into the vehicle, he still remained behind the wheel refusing to move. At the time, police officers on the scene were stunned that Moshe was able to withstand 3 tear gas shells and hosing with pepper spray without moving. Later that day, an LA law enforcement official said: “I can’t explain that, there’s no way to explain that.” Later still, a number of reports surfaced claiming “Mossad scientists are specifically trained to withstand assaults with large amounts of tear gas.”

After his apprehension, Moshe was taken to the Patton State Mental Hospital and then to LA’s Twin Towers Correctional Facility. Sometime about 60 days later Moshe was quietly released and his current whereabouts are unknown. Since his arrest became public, reports about Moshe’s activities in the U.S. have spread like wildfire, especially across the Internet. Many of these reports are unconfirmed but a few come from credible sources and have linked Moshe to the grossly underreported outbreak of flu in the Ukraine.

Other reliable sources, including two former Fort Detrick biochemists, have also linked Moshe to a mysterious disease that is becoming alarmingly common in Vermont and other states, including California. The disease is known to have killed or incapacitated at least 10-to-20 rural dwellers and farmers. This disease is said to be Morgellons disease or “a rare, mutated form of Morgellons disease.” Former Fort Detrick scientists, speaking off the record, say that the disease is one that was “experimented with intensely” in the late 1960s at several “test sites in New England” and at “a well known research facility in the Boston area.” Morgellons disease causes patients to suffer horrible skin problems as well as fatigue, confusion, and serious memory problems, as well as joint pain and the strange sensation that pins and needles are piercing the body or that something is crawling beneath one’s flesh. Some patients struck by the disease report that odd fiber-like materials force themselves through the skin. Several researchers and physicians consulted for this article believe that Morgellons may be a psychiatric condition called “delusional parasitosis.” Other physicians, who are familiar with treating the disease, say “an airborne, unidentified spore” may cause it, and that it was developed in the laboratory from an affliction that was first identified in the 1700s. Regardless of its origin, many researchers claim Morgellons is becoming “a very real medical problem in some parts of the country.”

Put this together with all the dead micro-biologists and we get a glimpse of something really evil going on. This is totally creepy.

Thank you for sharing this article transdimensional. Very interesting but creepy!

This stood our for me:

as well as the connection with Mossad. I sometimes forget how long these diabolic experiments have been being conducted for, and what "they" may have in storage for the population, always ready to be released when needed to suit the PTB's purposes.

Very very sad and unjust, to see another aspect of how we are sheep to them. :cry:

Not to forget that 1952 was the year of the most amazing UFO sightings over Washington. They thought it was an invasion. So, maybe that was when there was an agreement of some sort? Maybe the gov realized they had no way to deal with such a force and gave in to pressure?

Oh, that could well be the case, I think. Perhaps they formed a sort of alliance and received advice on what to do next to subdue the population.

I've found an interesting timeline that relates to all this:

From http://www.alienjigsaw.com/pom1.html[...]

1952 Another wave of UFO sightings occurred this year. "On July 19/20, UFOs were seen all over Washington, D.C. by the crews of several airliners, and were tracked on radar at Andrews AFB as well as Air Traffic Control Center at Washington National Airport."[24]

1952 The NSA, National Security Agency is formed as a separately organized agency within the Department of Defense. Headquartered at Fort Meade, Maryland, its main functions are to protect U.S. government communications and intercept foreign communications. They have the ability to monitor, translate, and decipher communications of any kind.[25]

1952 Project CASTIGATE began when the Navy and the CIA teamed up to test a "secret potion" that consisted of a depressant, a stimulant, and the active ingredient in marijuana. The drugs were to be administered over a three-day period. The experiment was carried out in Germany at a secret CIA base on a military installation. Experimental subjects included one known double agent, one suspected double agent and three defectors. Project CASTIGATE was considered a failure.[26]

1952 MKNAOMI (Pronounced M-K NAOMI with M-K standing for mind control.) TSS's agreement with the Special Operations Division of the Army's biological research center at Fort Detrick, Maryland. SOD's job was to produce germ weapons for the CIA's use.

TSS stands for Technical Services Staff and was an agency referred to as "the Gadget Wizards," similar to what "Q" is to James Bond.[27]

1952 Toward the end of 1952, the Air Force had over 1,500 new UFO reports in their files and 303 of those were unidentified. The sighting over Washington D.C. changed a lot for the Air Force. Since the publicity was overwhelming, a special panel was created to officially debunk UFOs. That panel was sponsored by the CIA and was called "The Robertson Panel."

1953 The Robertson Panel said: "The debunking aim would result in reduction of public interest in flying saucers, which today evokes a strong psychological reaction. This education could be accomplished by mass media such as television, motion pictures, and popular articles...Such a program should tend to reduce the current gullibility of the public and consequently their susceptibility to clever hostile propaganda."[28]

That same year an Air Force jet disappeared over northern Michigan while trying to intercept a UFO. According to Good, "...the incident has never been explained...no wreckage or the pilots were ever found."[29]

1953 Project CHATTER was abandoned by the Navy.

1953 MKULTRA, a CIA program for the covert use of biological and chemical weapons began. Bowart states, "According to CIA documents, MKULTRA was 'an umbrella project for funding sensitive projects' and covered 'policy and procedures for the use of biochemicals in clandestine operations...' "[30] "MKULTRA was exempted from normal CIA financial controls and allowed TSS to begin research projects without contracts or written agreements."[31]

As usual, MKDELTA and MKNAOMI had already been set up prior to the CIA being given official permission for MKULTRA. MKDELTA became the operational side of MKULTRA.

MKULTRA focused on drugs, specifically LSD since the CIA had a phobia about LSD ending up in the hands of the Russians. The CIA wanted to use LSD as a weapon. The Russians and the Cold War were used as a national security excuse for most of the CIA's actions. The CIA studied hundreds of other drugs besides LSD, as well as experimenting with: "radiation, electroshock, psychology, sociology, anthropology, psychiatry, harassment substances and paramilitary devices and materials."[32]

It appears that the scientists enjoyed trying these drugs on themselves, but they also used many hospital patients, volunteers (mostly students), inmates who were usually paid for their participation with more drugs, and eventually anyone the CIA could get, without their consent, of course. The CIA "scientists" even reduced themselves to misting and spraying unwitting American citizens as they walked down busy city streets. Later they would study how they could manipulate genes, and develop compounds that could simulate heart attack and stroke.[33]

Man, it is so strange. Just 2 weeks ago, after a strange white helicopter flew by my backyard, I went to google and typed "white helicopter" "santa rosa" just out of curiosity since I'd never seen anything like it. I was taken to an article in 2003 about a scientist who was convinced the population was being infected by a mystery fungus. I skimmed it, and kind of wrote it off at the time, but the memory surfaced rather intensely as I read the article above. I was able to find it again, although it was the very last link on my search results this time.

There is a strong possibility that some of this is disinfo from 2003, but it seems so relevant to the discussion I'd like to post the link here, pending further review. The article makes some pretty hefty claims regarding all of this, and I'm not so sure about the sources yet.

http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/archive.cgi?read=41991

The relevant portion is (it's a very long article):

[quote author=Mark Metcalf]
(...)
And why are they inundating the earth with a fungus genetically tailored to thrive on human blood?

Fungi from the Crypt

Award-winning journalist Will Thomas has reported that lab analysis showed spray samples contained over 360 different varieties of mold and fungi in addition to gene-splicing markers and extremely thin, red human blood cells.6

The chemtrail samples also contained a new breed of designer chemicals about which little is known in the public domain but which appear to be very dangerous, plus aluminum particulates approximately 1 micron in diameter.

Chemtrail particles are carried by air currents, spreading a fine dust of pathogenic materials throughout the environment. The dust is nearly impossible to avoid since people can ingest it simply by breathing, eating and drinking. It is logical to assume that those who have initiated this spraying program are well aware of its inescapable properties. What is more disturbing is the ease with which a more deadly substance could be substituted for the current chemtrail mix. Should this happen, it seems likely that the chemtrail program could exterminate all above-ground human populations in North America in approximately one week.

Medical doctors often misdiagnose fungal conditions because they are taught that fungi cannot live in the blood stream (become systemic), nor can the resolution of the microscopes (1,000 x magnification) commonly used by doctors reveal the presence of fungi in blood samples. However, there is a microscope (8,000 to 15,000 x magnification) that can, and does, reveal fungus in the blood. This microscope has a camera that can record the enlarged images on video, providing irrefutable documentation.

The inventor of this microscope, Dr. Robert Bradford of American Biologics, was actually run out of the United States for his efforts to help mankind and now has an office in Tijuana, Mexico. Doctors possessing these super-microscopes are intensely "regulated" by the federal government, which closely monitors their research. Under the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules, patients cannot be shown images or test results from the microscope. Research is also subject to inspection at any time of the day or night, and the FDA charges the targeted researchers $250 each time they show up.

Designer Fungus and Cancer

Dr. Marijah McCain, founder of the Herbal Healer Academy in Mountain View, Arkansas, has conducted extensive studies with her $40,000 super-microscope. In one study she discovered and documented a contagious leukemia virus. In another study, testing thirty patients, Dr. McCain found that eighty-three percent had systemic fungus in the blood. Her research also shows a direct link between the presence of fungus in the blood and the spread of cancer.7 Dr. McCain said, "Every single patient that I have seen that is terminal with cancer has the most incredible fungus overgrowth in the blood stream. Cancer is a slow-moving growth of mutating cells. The (allopathic) doctors will tell you it's fast moving and it's going to kill you very quickly. What can kill you is the fungus because the fungus moves very quickly and it's caused directly by the use of the chemotherapy. I have documented this in every instance."

What Dr. McCain is saying is that fungus/yeast is a plant and the growth of plants is accelerated by some chemicals and by radiation. She has also discovered that many cases of arthritis are not arthritis, but systemic fungus/yeast in the blood that clogs the arteries, causing them to swell.

Dr. McCain has been relentlessly hounded by the FDA. There is evidence that FDA activities are covertly directed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) using executives from top-secret contractors like Monsanto Corporation who are appointed to high FDA policy-making positions despite obvious conflict of interest.8 Dr. McCain has also had numerous attempts on her life. In one case, a high-powered rifle fired through the walls of her home. In another case, an unmarked helicopter sprayed her with poison. (In 1997, an unmarked, white helicopter sprayed me with an unknown substance while hovering about sixty feet above my home in Los Angeles for approximately five minutes.).

Microbiologist Mortality Goes Up

Interestingly, there now appears to be a global assassination program of the world's top microbiologists. Since 9-11-01, fifteen leading microbiologists have met untimely ends due to everything from gunshots to baseball bats to falling off bridges. Many of these men were considered the world's leading experts in infectious disease. See http://www.copvcia.com for more details.

Barium Found in Chemtrails

A Mr. Clifford Carnicom has cultured chemtrail spray samples in New Mexico and proven that barium is present.10 His test procedures and results are posted at http://www.carnicom.com. Barium suppresses human T-cell production, making the human body very susceptible to infectious agents. Barium also has electromagnetic properties and may be both amplifying and more evenly dispersing pulsed-energy waves first uncovered by a deceased University of Chapel Hill professor, Dr. David Fraser, in 1975. These waves are now most likely blanketing all cities and towns in North America for the purpose of mood and mind control.

Carnicom has also confirmed the existence of the pulsed energy in every location he has tested and has created a method by which it can be measured and recorded that is posted on his website, http://www.carnicom.com .

Pulsed-energy mind-control technology for mass populations was first tested on Medford, Oregon, making it the suicide capital of the nation overnight in the mid-seventies. See my article, "The Secret War Against Medford, Oregon."

The Spider's Web

Carnicom also received two similar spray samples picked up by separate eyewitnesses wanting to know what the strange weblike material was. One of the samples was fifty feet long by a half-inch wide. A small portion was sent to a laboratory for detailed analysis, whereupon two PhD's steadfastly maintained that the material was either silk or wool fibers. However, these men abruptly broke off all communication once their conclusion was challenged by simple, ordinary facts.

Human hair ranges from 60 to 100 microns thick. Wool fibers are 15 to 25 microns thick. Asbestos fibers are 2 to 3 microns thick. But the extremely adhesive, weblike fibers were essentially invisible to the human eye, measuring 0.2 to 0.3 microns in diameter. Under microscopic analysis they appeared wavy and of a synthetic nature. "Sufficiently unique to warrant further investigation," said Carnicom.

EPA Says "Drop Dead."

A sample was then sent to Carol M. Browner at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by certified mail.3 The EPA has since refused to acknowledge possession of the sample and has issued a statement saying they are "unaware" of any program to distribute materials over the population of the United States through the use of aircraft.

Doctors Become Alarmed

Eight doctors have come together to start the Morgellons Research Foundation, a grassroots organization, dedicated to finding the cause of an increasingly prevalent skin disease of unknown origin. Their website, http://www.morgellons.org , is a treasure-trove of medical documentation that includes photographs of the microfibers. The disease consists of skin lesions that contain "fiber-like objects as well as clear filament-like objects of unknown origin." "We are attempting to isolate this organism and determine how it is able to cause the intense itching, stinging and disfiguring skin lesions which are the main symptoms of this disease."

At the moment, the doctors say most reports are coming from California, Texas and Florida. "The working hypothesis of this foundation is that an infection with Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) (the bacteria that causes Lyme disease), may alter the individual's immune system and allow this unknown organism to become an opportunistic co-infection."11 So far, ninety-five percent of those afflicted with this skin disease who were tested for Bb have tested positive. The fibers have been analyzed by FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) and are composed of cellulose. A mystery fungus is also thought to play a role in the disease.

Because the symptoms and physical findings are so unusual, most physicians just assume the patient is misinterpreting their condition. Many adults comp laining of a hardening or thickening of the skin, hair loss, lymphedema, skin lesions, profound fatigue and joint pain, are receiving a diagnosis of Delusional Parasitosis. The Morgellons doctors added that, "Objects described as granules are often found associated with (the) skin lesions as well. Several people have had lymph nodes surgically removed due to obstruction." You can contact the doctors at Morgellons@aol.com or fax them at (760) 457-3441.

Regardless, I agree it is all totally creepy!

PS at last second I was able to find another forum posting on the web where someone took the times to list sources for the article above, and says that these are all excerpts from a book Mr. Metcalf wrote.

Apologies for reviving such an old thread, but after searching both this site and SOTT for the articles about the phenomenon regarding the (now over 100 apparently) dead micro-biologists, I was unable to turn up much at all. Almost nothing. And was actually surprised to find only this thread with myself as a contributor LOL (I had forgotten my post here, honestly!).

Can someone point me in the right direction? I know I remember more on this from before, in contrast to what I was able to find in my last 10 minutes searching...in my memory, there was more coverage on this topic, but I cannot seem to find it. Thanks!

This site used to have a lot of links and resources, which are now gone. Hmmmm

The Morgellons Research Foundation (MRF) is no longer an active organization and is not accepting registrations or donations.

The MRF donated remaining funds to the Oklahoma State University Foundation to support their Morgellons disease research.
