July 2000 Taliban leader Mullah Omar bans opium in Afghanistan, in cooperation with the United Nations.
"In July 2000, Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, collaborating with the UN to eradicate heroin production in Afghanistan, declared that growing poppies was un-Islamic, resulting in one of the world's most successful anti-drug campaigns. The Taliban enforced a ban on poppy farming via threats, forced eradication, and public punishment of transgressors. The result was a 99% reduction in the area of opium poppy farming in Taliban-controlled areas, roughly three quarters of the world's supply of heroin at the time."

Note on the chart at the bottom of the page, this is actually a cyclical event and a brief reaction to the sudden run up in prices. Oil has just begun its meteoric ascent aside from this brief drop.

January 23, 2020
The World Holocaust Forum is scheduled to host an event in Jerusalem. One news article says "Israel to host largest event ever focused on anti-Semitism"
Aside from the incredible tonedeafness of the 'event', a person has to wonder how it was arranged. It looks like it has been sold as an Eastern European attempt to 'separate' Judaism from the transnational interests that have been hiding behind it in the 'war on terror'.
If that is the case, then it will be an event similar to '9/11', but on 'Israeli' territory.
Almost certainly the 'event' was organized in Eastern Europe and has a wide number of people who vaguely understand its significance. This event would not have been organized by 'Jewish' interests.
Media coverage has already exposed some of the organizers.
