Israeli Science Website: Obama BC Forged !

WND EXCLUSIVE
Israeli science website: Obama birth certificate forged
Award-winning, former Netanyahu adviser behind assessment
Published: 1 day ago

by Jerome R. CorsiEmail | Archive
Jerome R. Corsi, a Harvard Ph.D., is a WND senior staff reporter. He has authored many books, including No. 1 N.Y. Times best-sellers "The Obama Nation" and "Unfit for Command." Corsi's latest book is "Where's the REAL Birth Certificate?"More ↓Less ↑ Subscribe to author feed

Israel Science and Technology, the national database and directory of science and technology-related websites in Israel, has published an article asserting the long-form birth certificate released by the White House is a forged document.

The website was created by a former science adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel Hanukoglu, Ph.D.

Hanukoglu, an award-winning researcher, is a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology in the Department of Molecular Biology at Ariel University Center of Samaria in Ariel, Israel.

The professor established the first version of his website during his tenure as Netanyahu’s science adviser. The site has evolved into “the premier science and technology portal for Israel.”

The website says that the White House’s release of the Obama document in April 2011, after years of controversy, “raised in our minds the possibility that there could be something suspicious about the information available on this document.”

The website conducted an independent analysis and cites others who came to the same conclusion.

The website says the publication “of such a blatantly fake document about something so basic as the birthplace of Mr. Obama, should raise great concern about the suitability of the person who is holding the reigns on the most powerful country of the World.”

Israel Science and Technology explains why, as a site of science and technology, it dedicated “a page to expose forgery about a document related to Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.”

“Mr. Obama is the president of the USA that is currently the leader of the Free World, and the most powerful country in the Western hemisphere,” the site says. “In his position as the President, the policies pursued by Mr. Obama affects the whole world and not just the USA.”

Moreover, inaction by members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, as well as U.S. courts, despite many appeals, also was seen to “raise a concern about how the governmental institutions of the reputedly best, and certainly the most important democracy in the Free World have avoided the issue.”

The missing ’1′

Utilizing the software program Foxit Reader version 4.3.1, the Israel Science and Technology website examined the PDF file posted by the White House April 27, 2011, and found that the last digit of the birth certificate’s number, 61 10841, disappears under 800-percent magnification.

Also, the font of the last digit is different from the other digits.

“This is only one example,” the Israelis concluded after examining the birth certificate number. “Many more examples can be discovered by examining magnified document with full page view of the document.”

Conclusion: “In brief, this simple analysis using just a viewing software reveals that the PDF document has been altered by a graphics software.”

The ‘ungrouped’ image

Next, the Israeli Science and Technology site examined the PDF birth certificate file in the freely available Inkscape graphics software, version 0.48.1.

“In vector graphics software, an image is composed of elements,” the website notes. “If the ‘Long-Form Birth Certificate’ of Obama was a photocopied document then it should not be composed of separate parts.”

The website says the status line “at the bottom of the software reports that the image is composed of ’2 objects’ that have been grouped.”

The Israelis found the Obama birth certificate PDF could be ungrouped, revealing individual layers. The most important of nine different ungrouped layers also shows the final digit, 1, is missing in the birth certificate number 61 10641.
Israeli Science and Technology “ungrouped” image of Obama long-form birth certificate
Israeli Science and Technology cited as additional evidence of forgery the following analyses, many of which were first published by WND:

•An expert analysis of the typography and layout of elements in the long-form birth certificate by Mara Zebest, here and here
•The conclusion of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse” that the birth certificate is fake.
•“From A to Z: What’s Wrong with Obama’s Birth Certificate,” published by WND May 13, 2011.
•“Irrefutable’ Proof of Obama Forgery,” published by WND July 17, 2011.
•“A Tale of Two Birth Certificates,” published by WND April 28, 2011.
•“Layered Colors ‘Simple Proof of Obama Document Forgery,” published by WND July 26, 2011.

For posterity, the PDF:
http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/defa...-long-form.pdf

I just relinquished myself to a few minutes reading the linked article, and one of the 'proof' articles linked from it. Anyone with any experience scanning, especially scanning old documents, could tell you that there isn't anything there - the kerning, the inconsistent characters and spacing, the faded letters, and on and on - that isn't commonplace in 50-year-old documents being scanned in to make electronic versions.

And even if the '1' in the serial number was added later, that doesn't logically mean it's a forgery or a fake - it means it was repaired. That also is commonplace in scanning in old, official documents.

This dog doesn't hunt, guys, like everything else the birther movement proposes. Give it up already.

Well, in all honesty, there really is a lot of weird looking shit in that birth certificate image.

I have already explained all of that in another thread. Common occurrence on scanned docs. Without going back into the tech, the scanning software built in to most office scanners/copiers uses a technique that tries to determine layers and it can cause these anomalies. As a matter of fact, I can replicate almost exactly these "weird" things very easily.

if they'd only scanned it to a jpg and not a pdf, that wouldn't have occurred, right?

depends.. it's actually the use of MRC that causes this. MRC=mixed raster content Which is a compression algorithm (sort of) that splits an image into layers based on "like" sections.. sort of.. this is a gross oversimplification. This usually occurs BEFORE the image is then formatted as jpg or put in a pdf or whatever... so you'd likely see the same problems EXCEPT that a jpg undergoes it's own compression that may change things causing us to see different results. So, hard to say.

is it different with a mac? only when i scan something as a document or optimized text or whatever, do i see that type of optimization occurring. its not anywhere near as extreme, but i don't use a mac.

Oh, good. I'm glad to see you know your stuff, AustinChief. I'll let you explain it all, since you're doing such a good job; I'll just add "what he said".

Well it's complicated. It depends on a TON of issues and in this case it isn't related to a PC of any kind. I'd say I'm 99.9% certain it was scanned in using a large office scanner to either a network drive or scanned to email. So all the processing occurs on the Xerox, or Canon or Sharp or whatever.

In the case of scanning something as a doc or OCR.. yeah that is a more high level process that occurs and will cause somewhat similar issues.

The specific issue in this case occurs at a much lower level though.

Thanks! Yeah, I had this debate before... Years ago I did a bit of programming at this level related to image processing so I know exactly what is happening but it's not the easiest thing to explain without going full on nerd and even then it's not easy to explain.

If anyone wants to do further research, just google mixed raster content and scanned documents. Last I checked, wikipedia doesn't have any useful info so skip that.

What pisses me off is the fact that there are so called "experts" that weigh in on this... and not a ONE of them has ever coded anything remotely related to this. They are "experts" because they use Photoshop or they have scanned some docs or whatever. Its a freakin joke what passes as an "expert" these days.

makes sense. here's a good example of that type of optimization software, link

Yep. I've done scanning for a little over 17 years, and I have a degree in history, so this nonsense bothers me on two completely different fronts. I have not, however, done image processing programming, so I'll let you take the point there, but I know enough to know that you know your stuff, you know?
