A LIST OF SAUDI OFFICIALS ARRESTED OVER THE WEEKEND…AND THEIR TIES TO PODESTA GROUP

The Duran reported yesterday that happened over the weekend in Saudi Arabia wasn’t just a “deep state” coup or counter-coup (depending on one’s angle), but a brilliant plan straight out of the movies where an up-and-coming young leader disrupts the entire power structure in his country by jailing its top oligarchs and then redistributing their wealth to the masses via ambitious socio-economic programs.

Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman had to make sure that all of the targeted individuals were in the capital at the same time, which would ordinarily be very difficult to do considering that most of them likely have foreign penthouses and other better priorities than to come together on a random occasion for a cup of tea in the Kingdom.

Considering that he was dealing with oligarchs, however, Mohammed Bin Salman knew that the best way to get them all in one spot was to appeal to their inner greed, and that’s exactly what the recent tech-investment forum in Riyadh accomplished.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My, how times change!!!! Looks like Prince Talal is about to experience a "reversal of fortunes", big time.

Is Netanyahu pushing Trump to war with Iran?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Presidents of the 52 Major Jewish American Organizations are leading President Trump, like a puppy on a leash, into a major war with Iran.

Israel to construct nearly 300 new settler units in East Jerusalem al-Quds

Israeli officials are expected to advance plans for the construction of nearly 300 new settler units in East Jerusalem al-Quds irrespective of the international outcry against the Tel Aviv regime’s land expropriation and settlement expansion policies in occupied Palestinian territories.

Expert: Hariri's resignation is a sign that Saudis and U.S-Israel are pursuing a disastrous 'Plan B'

To contextualize the resignation of Hariri in Lebanon, we must understand the ongoing development of the liberation of Syrian land as a result of the work of the Syrian Arab Army and their allies especially that of Hezbollah, where their elected leadership has already said that soon enough there would be the total liberation of Syria from ISIS, and we have already seen it this week in Iraq now in Iraq, and we are supposed to see it again between today and tomorrow when the SAA and allies reach Al Bukamal, which is a border area between Iraq and Syria.

So all of these events happening inside of Syria which indicate that the Saudis have indeed lost their war, especially with their proxies being a total failure inside of Syria, it has shown that now it's time for 'Plan B'.

Harvey Weinstein used Israeli spies in effort to silence victims

Disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein employed former Israeli agents as part of an elaborate and aggressive effort to spy on and suppress the allegations by women who have accused him of sexual assault and rape.

In an exposé for The New Yorker Ronan Farrow reveals that among the web of private investigators and firms Weinstein enlisted was Black Cube, “an enterprise run largely by former officers of Mossad and other Israeli intelligence agencies.”

...

Tweeting her reaction to the story, Asia Argento asked rhetorically why she and other prominent actresses did not speak up earlier. She answered her own question: “We were followed by ex-Mossad agents. Isn’t that terrifying? Very.”

"Explosive" Leaked Secret Israeli Cable Confirms Israeli-Saudi Coordination To Provoke War

The classified embassy cable, written in Hebrew, constitutes the first formal evidence proving that the Saudis and Israelis are deliberately coordinating to escalate the situation in the Middle East.

The explosive classified Israeli cable reveals the following:

On Sunday, just after Lebanese PM Hariri's shocking resignation, Israel sent a cable to all of its embassies with the request that its diplomats do everything possible to ramp up diplomatic pressure against Hezbollah and Iran.

The cable urged support for Saudi Arabia's war against Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen.

The cable stressed that Iran was engaged in "regional subversion".
Israeli diplomats were urged to appeal to the "highest officials" within their host countries to attempt to expel Hezbollah from Lebanese government and politics.

A Lesson in Jewish PR

Towards the end of my most recent book, Being in Time - a Post Political Manifesto, I elaborate on Jewish controlled opposition strategies. I contend that when Jews detect that that something associated with them has become problematic they quickly form satellite dissent movements: they are first to oppose themselves. When Capitalism was identified as a Jewish problem, Marx was first to offer a coherent alternative. Once Palestine emerged as an acknowledged Jewish problem, a Jewish solidarity industry (JVP, IJAN, Mondoweiss, IJV) formed to dominate the opposition discourse on Israel. The intellectual debate on Zio-con immoral interventionist wars has been reduced into an internal Jewish debate between Sam Harris and Noam Chomsky. I expect soon we’ll see Jews leading the fight against sexual predatory behaviour in Hollywood and beyond. None of this is necessarily conspiratorial.

Israel Begins “Largest-Ever Aerial Military Drill”, As Saudis Consider Missile Strike (Allegedly) by Iran as “Act Of War”

Air-forces from nine countries with about 50 planes are now starting to drill in the most southern region of the country utilizing Ovda Air Base in Israel.

Teams from India, the United States, Greece, Poland, France, Italy and Germany with be flying over 300 sorties simulating ‘real war’.

According to Israel Defense,

Throughout the first week of the two-week-long exercise, the international aircrews will acclimate themselves to the base and get to know each other. Throughout the second week, the participants will rehearse complex scenarios and coalition flights.

During some of the sorties, the participants will fly against the “Flying Dragon” Squadron, the IAF’s aggressor squadron, which will simulate enemy forces via “enemy” aircraft, SAM (Surface-to-air missile) batteries and MANPADS (Man-portable air-defense systems).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, the situation in the Middle East is getting to be just about as serious as is a heart attack.

These huge exercises are due to last two weeks, during which I believe that the Israeli/US-led coalition, in concert with Saudi Arabia (which doesn't want to be named, for obvious geopolitical reasons), will be making a go/no go decision for a decap strike against Tehran.

Here is a map of the Middle East;

Map of the Middle East

Eliat, the Israeli resort at Israel's southernmost tip, is closely located to the Ovda Air Base in Israel. This airbase, from which these exercises will take place, borders Aquaba, Jordan.

With Lebanon in geopolitical meltdown, after the resignation of Prime Minister Harriri; Saudi Arabia claiming that Iran shot a missile into Riyahd; Syria mopping up the last of their jihadis; and Iraq still in geoppolitical shock from the continued occupation, the shortest way into Iran appears to be a skip through Lebanese, Syrian and Iraqi airspace.

LEBANESE PRESIDENT WON'T ACCEPT PM'S RESIGNATION UNTIL HE RETURNS

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri resigned on television while visiting Saudi-Arabia, leaving the validity of his abdication unclear.

Lebanon's president will not accept the resignation of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri until he returns to Lebanon, palace sources said on Sunday, delaying for now politically difficult consultations on his successor.

Hariri left Lebanon for Saudi Arabia on Friday and resigned on Saturday in a televised statement that took the Lebanese political establishment by surprise.

A resignation would thrust Lebanon back into the arena of regional rivalry between Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia, an ally of Hariri, and Shi'ite Muslim Iran, which backs Hezbollah.

President Michel Aoun, a political ally of Hezbollah, will wait to accept or reject Hariri's resignation until he returns to Lebanon to explain his reasons, sources at the presidential palace said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this point, Lebanes President Ayoun has to consider the very real possibility that Harrari will not return to Lebanon, because he feels his life is at risk, should he do so.

Israeli-Saudi Tandem Adjusts to Syria Loss

It seems that matters are coming to a head in the Middle East. For many states, the coming period will likely prove to be the moment in which they determine their futures — as well as that for the region as a whole.

The immediate peg for “crunch time” is Russia’s fast-track proposal of a conference to be held in Sochi, with the near-full kaleidoscope of Syrian opposition invited, which, if all goes as planned, might mean 1,000 delegates arriving in Sochi as soon as Nov. 18.

SECOND SAUDI PRINCE CONFIRMED KILLED DURING CRACKDOWN

Following the death of Prince Mansour bin-Muqrin in a helicopter crash near the Yemen border yesterday, the Saudi Royal Court has confirmed the death of Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd - killed during a firefight as authorities attempted to arrest him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All is definitely not in a state of Zen-like calm in the House of Saud, and it appears that Prince Salman is consolidating his power, potentially ahead of a military move against Iran, economic moves that have nothing to do with oil, and massive financial moves against those who have been arrested here. The companion news stories are shatteringly grim, in terms of regional peace:

Saudis Consider Iranian Missle Strike and Act of War

Saudi Banks begin Freezing Accounts of Arrested Royals, Jets Grounded

Abdul Azia Bin Fahd, a buwsiness partner of former Lebanese PM Hariri, dies during arrest

Saudi Led Coalition has closed All Yemeni Sea and Air Ports

Osama Bin Laden's Brother Arrested in Saudi Crackdown

The
Saudi Purges are not about corruption, but economic compliance

SAUDIS CALL MISSILE ATTACK "BLATANT ACT OF AGGRESSION" BY IRAN, "COULD BE CONSIDERED ACT OF WAR"

But the question has to come to mind; why would the Iranians do something so profoundly stupid?!? My guess here, if I were to hazard one, is that possibly, they did not, but it could have been a false flag event, courtesy of Israel, or the Saudis themselves, created as a pretext for war against Iran.

So let's see precisely how this would come down; we would have Saudi Arabia; Israel; and the US on one side, and the Iranians and Russia on the other. Please remember that over the last several decades, and definitely since the Iranian revolution in 79, Russia's military and civilian leadership have collectively pledged to come to the aid of Iran, should it be attacked.

Russia, the US, and Israel are all nuclear-armed nations; the minute it did not appear that there was a conventional military win possible by the US and Israel, such a war could go nuclear in a heartbeat, and that is the horrific, and very real, danger here.

I would encourage the leadership of all countries potentially involved here to take a step back from the brink, and consider what peaceful options might be used to ratchet down tensions before a global catastrophe ensues; because there is no "coming back" from a global thermoneuclear war for this planet, or the people on it.

ISIS WAS STATE-SPONSORED BY US ALLIES, SAYS FORMER GOVERNMENT INTELLIGENCE ANALYST

Contrary to conventional wisdom, the peer-reviewed paper published in the Routledge journal Studies in Conflict and Terrorism in July, confirms not only that several regional states deliberately empowered al-Qaeda and ISIS foreign fighters for their geopolitical ends, but that many of these states are ostensibly US allies in the ‘war on terror’: including Turkey, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

Study author Professor Daniel Byman of Georgetown University’s Security Studies Programme was previously a Middle East analyst for the US intelligence community, and headed up the Center for Middle East Studies at the RAND Corporation?—?a major US government defence contractor.

‘NON-STATE’ TERROR IS OFTEN STATE-SPONSORED

Flying in the face of much conventional wisdom on the ‘non-state’ nature of international Islamist terrorism, the study finds that:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, for those who have been paying attention, these revelations come as no major surprise.

The US government will stop at nothing to destabilize those regimes it wants to destroy or regime change.

That hasn't worked out quite so well for the US government with Syria, so one has to wonder what the US is going to do there next, considering Russia's intense protection of the current regime.

Family mourns Palestinian shot by Israeli forces

Elayyan said the case is just one among scores of incidents in which Israeli soldiers and officers use lethal force on Palestinians who are not posing an immediate threat. Out of hundreds of cases in which Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces over the past two years, most "could have been easily avoided", he said.
Such cases "qualify as extrajudicial killings" and indicate that Israeli forces "follow a shoot to kill policy", Elayyan said - and Israeli forces rarely face accountability.

Why Are U.K. Progressives Still Celebrating a Grotesque anti-Semite and Holocaust Denier

The protestors pointed out that Atzmon is a well-documented Holocaust denier and racist. The Community Security Trust (which monitors threats to the U.K.’s Jews) described his previous book as "quite probably the most anti-Semitic book published in this country in recent years." That book argued that Jewishness (and not Zionism) is pernicious and that Hitler will be vindicated by history.

The Balfour Declaration – A Century of Jewish Power

The Balfour Declaration provides solid evidence that the dominance of Jewish political lobbies in world affairs is not really a ‘new development.’ In 1917, at the peak of WWI, it was up to a few Jewish financiers and lobbyists to decide the fate of countries, continentsand the outcome of global conflicts.

One Hundred Years of the Balfour Decision

British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that Britain will celebrate the 100the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration later this year. The Conservative Party leader addressed her party's "Friends of Israel" faction and declared that the Balfour Declaration was "one of the most important letters in history" while pledging that her government would celebrate it "with pride." Her determination to do so is a clear indication that those who control national politics also control official interpretations of history. In the case of the Balfour Declaration's centenary, it is the ongoing alliance of Zionist special interests and British political power that is about to turn what has been a disaster for Britons, Jews and Palestinians alike, into a source of national pride.

Britain’s Grave Historical Responsibility for the Palestine Tragedy

... The evicted Palestinian Arabs have been forcibly deprived of their country, their homes, and their property without having been allowed to have a voice in the determination of their own destiny. Though the facts are public, there is a widespread ignorance of them in the Western World and, above all, in the United States, the Western country which has had, and is still having, the greatest say in deciding Palestine's fate. The United States has the greatest say, but the United Kingdom bears the heaviest load of responsibility ... The tragedy in Palestine is not just a local one; it is a tragedy for the World, because it is an injustice that is a menace to the World's peace.

Is Trump Planning Escalated US Aggression in Syria?

According to Major General James Jarrard, head of US special operations in Syria and Iraq, 4,000 Pentagon troops are in Syria. Trump claimed 500.

It’s an open secret that far more US military personnel are deployed in combat and other theaters, Pentagon commanders suppressing what’s vital to know.

Trump claimed around 5,300 US troops in Iraq. The actual force may be double or triple this number. Their regional presence has nothing to do with combating ISIS, a scourge Washington supports, along with al-Qaeda, its al-Nusra offshoot and other terrorist groups, used to advance America’s imperium.

Russia and Washington submitted separate Security Council resolutions on extending the OPCW/UN Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM), investigating use of CWs in Syria, falsely blamed on Damascus despite no evidence proving it.

Russia wants the JIM extended until May 16, 2018. Washington proposed another 24 months.

Video From Recent Syria Attack Shows Israel Assisting, Opening Border Gate For Terrorists

By Brandon Turbeville

It has long been known that Israel is acting in direct support of terrorists in Syria by virtue of routine aerial assaults, intelligence, and medical care. However, if there was any doubt regarding this support, recent video evidence should easily do away with that doubt entirely.

On November 3, Israel acted in direct military support of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army by providing artillery cover as the two terror groups assaulted the Syrian government-held and predominately Druze town of Hader. The move was an attempt to break the siege of Beit Jinn, an area controlled by terrorists...

Damascus Calls Israel 'Agent of Terrorism' After Airstrike on Syrian Factory

Tel Aviv and Damascus that have been in the state of war since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, have repeatedly exchanged tit-for-tat attacks.
BEIRUT (Sputnik) — The Syrian Foreign Ministry has sent a letter to the UN Security Council over an Israeli airstrike on a copper factory in Hassia area in Syria's Homs province, according to the ministry's documents published on Thursday.

"Yet another aggression of Israel… shows that Israeli authorities are not satisfied with the state terrorism against the Arab population in occupied Palestine, Syria and Lebanon. They want to play the role of the official agent of terrorism," the ministry's document read, as quoted by the SANA news agency.

Damascus' statement comes a day after a Lebanese security service source told Sputnik that Israeli aircraft had carried out an attack on targets in Syria from Lebanon's airspace.

Who wrote the Balfour Declaration and why: The World War I Connection

Diverse documentary evidence shows that Zionists pushed for the U.S. to enter the war on Britain’s side as part of a deal to gain British support for their colonization of Palestine.

From the very beginning of their movement, Zionists realized that if they were to succeed in their goal of creating a Jewish state on land that was already inhabited by non-Jews, they needed backing from one of the “great powers.”[vii] They tried the Ottoman Empire, which controlled Palestine at the time, but were turned down (although they were told that Jews could settle throughout other parts of the Ottoman empire and become Turkish citizens).[viii]

Walls and Militarized Police: How Israel Is Exporting Its Occupation to the US

Israeli footprints are becoming more apparent in the US security apparatus. Such a fact does not bode well for ordinary Americans.

US Senate Bill S.720 should have been a wake-up call. The Bill, drafted by the Israel lobby group, American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), as part of its “2017 Lobbying Agenda” is set to punish any individual or company that boycotts Israel for its violation of Palestinian human rights.

The severe punishment could reach a million dollars in fines, and up to 20 years in jail. Although political boycott has been sanctioned by the US Supreme Court, the Congress wants to make a boycott of Israel the exception, even it means the subversion of US democracy.

Still, protests are largely muted. The mainstream US media is yet to take US lawmakers to task, as hundreds of those elected representatives have already endorsed the unacceptable initiative.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will continue to logically, intelligently criticize Israel with regard to its treatment of the Palestinians until free speech is no longer allowed in this country.

Texas city drops Israel boycott ban for individuals but says businesses must still reject BDS to get hurricane aid

The city of Dickinson, Texas, will no longer require private citizens affected by Hurricane Harvey to sign a pledge guaranteeing they do not and will not boycott Israel as a condition to receiving help.

After a closed meeting with city attorney David Olson, the city council passed a motion to remove a clause that conditions disaster relief aid on an applicant’s political views.

While a clear victory for residents of Dickinson — if perhaps bittersweet because the storm-struck are simply back to where the application process should have begun — the amendment only applies to private homeowners.

Israel Violates Lebanese Airspace to Strike Syria

Israeli warplanes have flown over Lebanese airspace into Syria where they carried out an airstrike, a Lebanese security official said Thursday.

“Israel planes flew over eastern Lebanon, in violation of Lebanese airspace, and conducted an airstrike in a rural area of Homs,” a top Lebanese security official said on condition of anonymity due to the issue’s sensitivity.

The aircraft flew at low altitude over the Lebanese border towns of Ras Baalbek and Al-Fakhah, the official said, adding that Syrian regime forces had responded to the incursion with anti-aircraft fire.

According to reports in the Lebanese media, the airstrike targeted a factory in Homs.

Israel Attacks Syria’s Homs Province, Syria Fires Anti-Aircraft Missiles

The latest in a growing number of Israeli airstrikes against Syrian territory appears to have been one of the most ambitious yet, striking deep into the Homs Province, near the Lebanese border and destroying what was said to be a weapons depot for the Syrian military.

The attack destroyed the site, and provoked retaliatory fire from Syrian air defense, who fired a number of surface-to-air missiles at the Israeli warplanes. Israeli officials say none of their planes were hit in the incident.

Where this is all leading is another matter, however. Israel has been very public about being upset that the Assad government is winning the Syrian War, and with ISIS and al-Qaeda both on the ropes, Syria may not feel so overwhelmed by existing fights that they feel incapable of retaliating. Likewise, Russia’s patience with Israeli attacks has always been tentative, at best, and could quickly dry up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the Israeli government believes that it can continue to bomb Syria with impunity (due to the alleged "growing Iranian influence" there)will not be taken lightly by either the Syrian government, or the Russian government, which has been invited to get rid of all jihadists in the country.

Israel is probably more in danger if Russian patience snaps, because at that point, their military initiating these attacks could run into some very unpleasant surprises.

ISRAELI COMPANIES IN TALKS TO INVEST IN SAUDI ARABIA’S “SMART CITY”

Several Israeli companies are in talks with the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia about business opportunities in the Kingdom’s new “smart city”, according to documents obtained by the Jerusalem Post.

The Israeli daily claims to have seen correspondence confirming economic cooperation between Arab diplomats and businessmen in Tel Aviv; Israeli firms will reportedly be competing under the table for billion-dollar contracts from the Saudi government.

“The Saudis are not so willing to cooperate with the Israelis formally, but … it’s much easier to create all kinds of cooperation on water, energy, ag-tech, food tech. This is the stuff that the prince of Saudi Arabia [Mohammed Bin Salman] wants to promote in the smart city,” said a source in Israeli venture capital who is familiar with the project.

Pandering to Israel Has Got to Stop

Most Americans have no idea of just how powerful Israeli and Jewish interests are. Two recent stories out of Kansas and Texas illustrate exactly how supporters of Israel in the United States are ready, willing and able to subvert the existing constitutional and legal protections that uphold the right to fair and impartial treatment for all American citizens.

The friends of Israel appear to believe that anyone who is unwilling to do business with Israel or even with the territories that it has illegally occupied should not be allowed to do business in any capacity with federal, state or even local governments. Constitutional guarantees of freedom of association for every American are apparently not valid if one particular highly favored foreign country is involved.

Maryland’s Governor Larry Hogan Accused of “McCarthyism”

On October 23, 2017, surrounded in the State House by members of the Israel Lobby, he signed an Executive Order blocking the state of Maryland from awarding contracts to businesses that support boycotts of Israel.

According to Michael Brown, writing for “Popular Resistance,” on October 26: “Activists in Maryland have twice beaten back efforts to pass such an anti-BDS measure through the state legislature.”[1]

So, is Governor Hogan trying to do an end run around the Legislature by using the powers of his office? Keep in mind, he is acting on behalf of the interest of a foreign power – Israel – which he didn’t mention in his remarks.

Kenneth Marcus will head the Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights.

Formerly, he was staff director at the US Commission on Civil Rights under GW Bush.

It shamefully calls anti-Semitism and “anti-Israelism” on university campuses the “leading civil and human rights challenge facing North American Jewry.”

It’s silent about longstanding Israeli high crimes of war and against humanity, its ruthless persecution of illegally occupied Palestinians, and its own Arab citizens.

Leaked report: Israel acknowledges Jews in fact Khazars

Israel seems finally to have thrown in the towel. A blue-ribbon team of scholars from leading research institutions and museums has just issued a secret report to the government, acknowledging that European Jews are in fact Khazars. (Whether this would result in yet another proposal to revise the words to “Hatikvah” remains to be seen.) At first sight, this would seem to be the worst possible news, given the Prime Minister’s relentless insistence on the need for Palestinian recognition of Israel as a “Jewish state” and the stagnation of the peace talks. But others have underestimated him at their peril. An aide quipped, when life hands you an etrog, you build a sukkah.

FLASHBACK - Ethnic specific weapons: The real story behind the murder of Dr David Kelly

Israel is working on a biological weapon that would harm Arabs but not Jews, according to Israeli military and western intelligence sources. The weapon, targeting victims by ethnic origin, is seen as Israel's response to Iraq's threat of chemical and biological attacks.

A scientist there said the task was hugely complicated because both Arabs and Jews are of Semitic origin. But he added: "They have, however, succeeded in pinpointing a particular characteristic in the genetic profile of certain Arab communities, particularly the Iraqi people."

Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu Is Leading US President Trump to War with Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Presidents of the 52 Major Jewish American Organizations are leading President Trump, like a puppy on a leash, into a major war with Iran. The hysterical ’52 Presidents’ and ‘Bibi’ Netanyahu are busy manufacturing Holocaust-level predictions that a non-nuclear Iran is preparing to ‘vaporize’ Israel, , The buffoonish US President Trump has swallowed this fantasy wholesale and is pushing our nation toward war for the sake of Israel and its US-based supporters and agents. We will cite ten recent examples of Israeli-authored policies, implemented by Trump in his march to war (there are scores of others).

Reports: Israel to Consult US before Jerusalem Annexation

TEHRAN (FNA)- Reports said the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will talk to the United States before moving ahead with a controversial bill to annex settlements built on the Palestinian land in Jerusalem. Israel delayed a ministerial vote on the proposed bill on Sunday without explanation but an official said that the bill's current version "invites international pressure and involves difficult legal issues," presstv reported. “We are in touch with the Americans,” Netanyahu said during a cabinet meeting, explaining that the US administration had asked Israel for clarifications about the so-called “Greater Jerusalem bill.” “The Americans turned to us and inquired what the bill was about. As we have been coordinating with them until now, it is worth talking and coordinating with them. We are working to promote and develop the settlement enterprise,” he said.

Jewish War on Free Speech

We begin this week’s edition of the ‘Jewish War on Free Speech’ with the news that following intense jewish pressure; social media giant Twitter has begun an increased crackdown on ‘hate’ – specifically against jews – on its platform (1) and jews are predictably egging them on through the media by highlighting specific types of so-called ‘hate’ that they wanted removed. (2)

Facebook (3) and Steam (4) are under similar pressure from the Israel Lobby and jewish journalists respectively (although Israeli has already been actively censoring Facebook for some time now), (5) while the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith’s leader Jonathan Greenblatt has been in Cleveland trying to stir up a witch-hunt against so-called ‘anti-Semites’ (6) and the Times of Israel has been attempting to do the same.

Israel MK: Palestinians’ ‘liability’ is that ‘they weren’t born Jews’

An Israeli parliamentarian has expressed his support for formal apartheid, backing the annexation of the entire West Bank but without its Palestinian inhabitants being granted the right to vote.

MK Miki Zohar, who is chair of the Knesset’s Special Committee for Distributive Justice and Social Equality, expressed his views in an interview with Haaretz newspaper.

“When we say to the Palestinians, ‘We are giving you a state, let’s make peace’ – it’s deceiving them,” Zohar told the paper.

“No one is going to give them a state, not the left either. I am saying: Let’s cut this problem off before it begins and stop with the lies. We’ll tell them: ‘Guys, no state, live here with us, prosper, earn a living, educate your children’.”

UN ON KHAN SHEIKHOUN - VICTIMS HOSPITALIZED BEFORE CLAIMED INCIDENT HAPPENED

A UN commission concluded that the Syrian government is responsible for a widely discussed incident in Khan Sheikhoun. An alleged gas attack by air happened in April in an al-Qaeda controlled area in Syria. It was used by the White House to justify its bombing of a Syrian airbase.

The now released report was made to fit the narrative. The details below show that it was not the result of a serious investigation. This explains why Russia blocked the extension of the mandate of the reporting commission.

On October 26 Reuters reported: Syrian government to blame for April sarin attack: U.N. report

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad is to blame for a chemical attack on the opposition-held town of Khan Sheikhoun that killed dozens of people last April, according to a report sent to the United Nations Security Council on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Timing of the release of such a report, is never accidental.

So one has to wonder; just what are the US and Israel going to do, collectively, to Syria, to "punish" its leadership for a chemical attack it does not appear the Syrian government actually did?!?

The Israeli government has been very public in stating that as long as there is any Iranian presence in Syria, they will continue to bomb it.

Israel is going to war in Syria to Fight Iran.

US backed rebels gain foothold on large oil field in Syria, and refuse to give it back to the Syrian government. US Backed Syrian rebels capture huge, formerly ISIS-controlled oil field, refuse to give it back to the Syrian government

So, the US government now has a small "beachhead" in Syria, from which Israeli military can maneuver.

It is only a matter of time before both countries, working in concert, will try a decap strike against Damascus, pushing both countries into a potential military confrontation with Russia in Syria.

This is a coming collective "you can't fix stupid" moment, for both the US and the Israeli government, if they think, for a moment, that Russia will not counter them militarily, and soon.

Rabbi Zvi Solomons and Lord Greville Janner

When the British Zionist zealots figured out that their smear campaign against me had gone nowhere and Reading Festival was not going to surrender to their relentless pressure, they decided to mobilise. They triggered their exclusive weapon: the sleazy orthodox Rabbi Zvi Solomons, who was available since he was sacked by (and then sued) his congregation in 2016.

The problematic rabbi did his part. He has able to tick every box in the Hasbara book; from verbal smears to proper harassment. On the day of my talk he and his Rebbetzin wife even visited the Fairtrade shop at the Community Centre where I was presenting my talk and attempted to intimidate the staff by shoving a camera in front of their faces. This shouldn’t take us by surprise -- if it looks like a settler and it behaves like a settler, it may as well be a settler. However, Reading is not in the West Bank and that kind of vile behaviour is not what well mannered Brits expect from religious clerics.

Recently, Israel attacked Syrian anti-aircraft facilities, the first time Israeli jets had been targeted by Syria since its civil war began.

Iran’s military chief, during a recent visit to Syria, said it was unacceptable to allow Israel to threaten Syrian assets.

Not this time.

Seated next to the Speaker, the President of Israel, Reuven Rivlin, made a speech that was unprecedented in every respect. He attacked the Likud-dominated government coalition and accused it of undermining the rule of law, the Attorney General and the police.

The President is no leftist, by any means. He belongs to the nationalist right. His ideology is that of "the whole of Eretz-Israel". He is a member of the Likud party.

Israel willing to resort to military action to stop Iran acquiring nuclear weapons: minister

Israel is willing to resort to military action to ensure Iran never acquires nuclear weapons, the intelligence minister said on Thursday in Japan where he is seeking backing for U.S. President Donald Trump’s tougher line on Tehran.

Trump said on Oct. 13 he would not certify Iran is complying with an agreement on curtailing its nuclear program, signed by his predecessor, Barack Obama, opening a 60-day window for Congress to act to reimpose sanctions.

“If international efforts led these days by U.S. President Trump don’t help stop Iran attaining nuclear capabilities, Israel will act militarily by itself,” Intelligence Minister Israel Katz said in an interview in Tokyo. “There are changes that can be made (to the agreement) to ensure that they will never have the ability to have a nuclear weapon.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These threats against Iran by Intelligence Minister Katz are only for domestic consumption, to placate the Israeli voters that Tel Aviv is doing "someething" to alleviate the alleged "existential threat" represented by Iran (which only collectively exists in the fevered brains of those in the Knesset in Tel Aviv).

What Israel has been cheerleading for, consistently, is a US attack against Iran, with the costs only to be borne only with American blood and American money, not Israeli.

And of course, that may well lead to a war with Russia over Iran, as Russian politicians and military commanders have consistently pledged that should Iran get attacked militarily, Russia will come to its aid.

IF President Trump is in any way as smart as he purports to be, he will sit this one out, and let it be Israel getting clobbered by both the Iranian and Russian military.

Unfortunately, with the choke-hold Tel Aviv has on US foreign policy, that is as likely a scenario as is pigs discovering they are aerodynamic.

Potential showdown in eastern Syria over IS-held territory

As U.S.-allied fighters hurtle down the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, a showdown could ensue between the U.S. and Russia, whose allies are racing to take over the same strategic oil-rich territory from the Islamic State group.

While the two sides will likely avoid a direct confrontation, the capture of Raqqa by the U.S.-backed forces, followed by their swift seizure of Syria's largest oil field from IS, has irked Damascus, which needs the oil to boost its flagging economy.

As the rival international coalitions compete to defeat the militants and snap up oil and gas fields, the Russian military has issued a stream of angry statements, accusing the U.S. of colluding with the Islamic State and other extremist groups in a bid to stymie the government's advances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think, at this point, it is only a matter of time before we see Russian/Syrian and US-backed jihadists tangling militarily.

The potential for a US strike has been escalated by Israeli threats (and the carrying out of those threats) to strike Syria as long as there is any Iranian military presence there.

Israel is going to war in Syria to fight Iran

The situation in Syria looks as though it is heading into a very volatile place, and I hope Russia can ratchet down the tensions.

Israel begins to doubt the capability of new F-35 fighter jets

Israeli military officials and defense analysts are beginning to cast doubts over the country’s decision to purchase the US-built fifth-generation F-35 fighter jets.

In the latest national military review put together by various defense-related ministries within the Israeli government, a conclusion was reached with specific regard to the acquisition of F-35 fighters that placed emphasis on need to “meticulously” assess the jets already purchased and, interestingly enough, to begin considering alternatives if the aircraft did not meet Israeli Air Force expectations.

The sudden compromise in confidence over the fighter’s ability by Israel following practical assessment of it comes as no surprise for the aircraft is already known to be inherently flawed among other nations that have tested it.

TRUMP BOWS TO NEOCONS, NETANYAHU

President Donald Trump’s new Iran policy clearly represents a dangerous rejection of diplomacy in favor of confrontation. But it’s more than that: It’s a major shift toward a much closer alignment of U.S. policy with that of the Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Whether explicitly or not, Trump’s vow to work with Congress to renegotiate the Iran nuclear agreement, and his explicit threat to withdraw from the deal if no renegotiation takes place, appear to be satisfying the hardline demands Netanyahu has made of Washington’s policy toward Tehran.

Israel Now Threatening Military Escalation with Neighboring Syria

As 21WIRE reported earlier this week, Israel’s violation of Lebanese airspace (supposedly to bomb a Hezbollah convoy driving from Syria to Lebanon) prompted the Syrian Arab Army to launch a SA-5 (S-200) ground to air missile, towards the Israeli jets flying over Lebanon, which then prompted the Israeli Air Force to retaliate by flying over the occupied Golan Heights and target a Syria Army ground position.

The total number of Israeli attacks against Syria since 2011 could number as high as 20, however, as veteran Middle East correspondent Elijah J. Magnier points out, this exchange marked an important new shift in Israel’s rules of engagement against Syria and Hezbollah in Syrian and Lebanese territory.

Israel’s response has been rather bellicose to say the least, as the US-backed rogue state continues to thwart the “rules-based international community” through its systematic violation of international law under the elastic guise of ‘defending itself.’

US lawmakers seek vote to abandon Saudi-led war in Yemen

A bipartisan quartet of House lawmakers is wrangling with the chamber’s leadership for a floor vote to withdraw U.S. military support for Saudi involvement in Yemen’s civil war.

California Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna, who is pressing for the vote, said Tuesday that he is in negotiations with Democratic and Republican leadership about whether the resolution is privileged under the War Powers Act and would therefore get an automatic, fast-tracked floor vote.

Such a vote, Khanna said, is likely to unite progressive Democrats and non-interventionist Republicans — though the outcome is unclear. “You may get many Democrats and Freedom Caucus members,” Khanna said, referring to the conservative wing of the House GOP caucus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope that the House does overturn the AUMF; unfortunately, such a vote will most likely be vetoed by President Trump, because he believes (without a shred of evidence, other than that conjured up by Saudi Arabia and Israel) that Iran is gaining a strong foothold in Yemen.

My bet is that this slaughter in Yemen will continue unabated, to the point of nearly assassinating every last Yemeni child, woman, and medically fragile elderly person, if they haven't already dropped dead from malnutrition and cholera.

Of course, to Saudi Arabia's Prince Salmon, AKA the Butcher of Yemen, the ends, done through the commission of US government-enabled war crimes against the Yemeni people, justifies the means.

Not So Sorry – After apology, Anthony Scaramucci reposts poll on number of Jews killed in Holocaust

Anthony Scaramucci’s self-described news outlet reposted a controversial survey question on Twitter about the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust, saying it was an educational exercise.

The Scaramucci Post originally tweeted out the poll on Oct. 17, asking, “How many Jews were killed in the Holocaust?” and offered multiple choices: “Less than one million, between 1-2 million, between 2-3 million, more than 5 million.”

The historical figure, 6 million, was not offered.

The resulting outcry included a rebuke from the Anti-Defamation League anti-Semitism watchdog, which said the poll could lend credence to Holocaust deniers.

Noting that he is Jewish, Scaramucci’s partner in the enterprise, Lance Laifer, took responsibly for posting the survey, removed the tweet and apologized “if anyone was offended.”

Israel Sold Advanced Weapons to Myanmar During anti-Rohingya Ethnic Cleansing Campaign

Israel refuses to stop arms sales to Myanmar, despite its campaign of rape, torture and massacres against the Rohingya

Top Secret Israel's top court just ruled about arms sales to Myanmar. But we're not allowed to tell you the verdict

Opinion Israel, partner in genocides.

“Welcome to the Myanmar Navy,” said the caption on the Myanmar Navy’s Facebook page, in honor of the arrival of an Israeli patrol boat to Myanmar’s shore. “The Super-Dvora MK III is moving forward at 45 knots on Myanmar waters,” the post continued. The post is from April, only half a year ago, when the Myanmar (Burmese) army was already being accused of war crimes.

Although the persecution of the Muslim minority in Myanmar, the Rohingya people, has become more intense in recent months, back in November 2016 the army was already being accused of brutality against them and of torching their villages. During that period tens of thousands of Rohingyans were expelled

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli weapons manufacturers made their millions in these sales; the genocide created by the use of these weapons against a religious minority, getting thoroughly persecuted as "the other" by hypernationalist Buddhists is something to which they absolulely cannot relate.

Understanding the history of Israel, and the horrific experiences of many of its founding fathers and mothers, one cannot but help but find this mindset... painfully ironic.

Bolton thinks the current move on the JCPOA is essentially for show: the deal is unsalvageable.

God’s Chosen Child Molesters– Dozens of pedophiles in Israel arrested after police sting

After a three-month long undercover operation in which two Israeli policewomen posed online as 13-year-old girls, dozens of suspects have been arrested for pedophilia offenses.

The men that the policewomen made contact with were aware that the girls they were speaking with were minors. They sent sexually explicit photos, videos and messages. Israel Police said the purpose of the exercise was to deter further attacks.

”We will spare no means to reach the truth and make sure that those who need to pay a price [for their actions], will do so,” a spokesperson for the police said.

Twenty suspects from across the country, ranging in age from their twenties to their seventies, were arrested Monday morning. They will be brought to the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court for hearings on the extent of their detentions.

Netanyahu Very Upset with Iraqi Forces Capturing Kirkuk, Takes Action to Reclaim Oil

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is very upset with Baghdad’s decision to drive back pro-Barzani forces from important cities and energy sites in Iraq.

One week ago, Iraqi pro-government forces launched a powerful offensive along the entire Kurdish frontier in northwestern Iraq, liberating a number of cities and towns and re-claiming from pro-Barzani militants the strategic Kirkuk oilfields and the Mosul Dam.

Perhaps more upset with this outcome than Barzani loyalists is Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli government on a whole whose sense of oil security has been somewhat breached.

Whilst it is highly unlikely that Baghdad will cease sending oil to Israel, the price for its purchase will undoubtedly go up to levels that Israel is traditionally uncomfortable with.

The U.S. had warned the Kurds against holding the referendum on independence on Sept. 25, which carried with 92 percent. Iran and Turkey had warned against an independent Kurdistan that could be a magnet for Kurdish minorities in their own countries.

But the Iraqi Kurds went ahead. Now they have lost Kirkuk and its oil, and their dream of independence is all but dead.

More troubling for America is the new reality revealed by the rout of the peshmerga. Iraq, which George W. Bush and the neocons were going to fashion into a pro-Western democracy and American ally, appears to be as close to Iran as it is to the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American people have grown infinitely more war-weary and more war-sceptical than at any other time I have observed them, since the Vietnam War era.

I seriously doubt that they will support more wars, when our existing ones in places like Iraq; Niger; Somalia; Afghanistan; Syria; and Yemen are going so generally horribly badly.

That Iran should become politically dominant in Baghdad, Beiruit, or Damascus, is one of the unintended consequences of a number of poorly thought out and ill conceived war scenarios, dating back to the Bush era, which did not account for for the potential hazards of getting involved militarily in the region the first place. And despite all the cheerleading from Israel's Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman regarding regime change in Tehran, such a move would most likely box the US government into another no-win situation, as is the current US/NATO occupation of Afghanistan.

The primary charactarization of US foreign policy over the last 16 years has to be that of magical thinking, which had absolutely zero basis in reality, but the horrific costs, in American blood and money, have been all too real.

In looking at the corporate US-presstitute demonization I am seeing of both Russia and Iran, it looks as though President Trump is ultimately looking to wage wars against both these countries; I just hope he understands that our military cannot fight both at the same time, although that is what will happen if he attacks Iran, because Russia's mllitary and civilian leadership have long pledged to defend it if it is attacked militarily.

I would like to politely point out that as a result of assisting Syria against its jihadis, Russia has earned the envy of the world in terms of its weaponry, and how well it has functioned in real-world combat conditions; the US has the Lockheed-Martin F-35 to offer, which is still incapable of working as advertised, no matter how many billions of dollars the DOD has thrown at it.

The Occupied, Unhinged Surveilled State of Amerika, at this moment the 21st century, has become a true rogue nation, and one that no nation in its collective right mind could possibly trust to keep its word; look at what President Trump has just done with the P5+1 agreement, as an example. The only way it seems to get its way, is through hubristic bellicosity, lies, and war, rather than hard-won, moral negotiations.

I would like to hope that the White House, Congress, State Department and Pentagon have the capability to think through their next moves in the in the Middle East through very thoroughly, and carefully; The next moves here, if not done with extreme care and caution, could well spark a Third World.

Israel Maintains Robust Arms Trade with Rogue Regimes

"Many Western states sell arms, but what's unique about Israel is that, wherever war crimes and crimes against humanity are being committed, you find Israel is present," Eitay Mack, a human rights lawyer, has submitted a spate of petitions to the Israeli courts in an attempt to bring to light details of Israel's trade with such regimes. He said the cases were designed to hasten war crimes investigations of the officials and contractors involved... Reports said human rights activists are stepping up efforts to expose Israel's long and covert history of supplying weapons and military training to regimes while they actively commit massacres, ethnic cleansing and genocide. The issue of Israel's trade with rogue regimes has been thrust into the spotlight again after revelations that it is sending weapons to Myanmar, in defiance of a US and European arms embargo, Al Jazeera reported.

Tillerson Demands Iran "Militias" Leave Iraq As Fighting Against ISIS "Comes To A Close"

One week after we reported that the head of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard (which two weeks ago was designated by the US as a terrorist organization), Qassem Soleimani, was observed in Erbil last Sunday where he met with Kurdistan regional president Barzani to "discuss" the growing crisis - the latest indication of Iran's surging influence in the region - and just days before Iraq sent in troops assisted by Iranian militia into Iraq's Kurdish region, which promptly regained control over the oil-rich Kirkuk region, on Sunday Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that Iranian "militias" need to leave Iraq as the fight against Islamic State militants was coming to an end.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's take a look at a map of Iran:

Iran and surrounding countries

IF the US military is planning a strike against Iran, they will need all Iranian militia out of Iraq, if they are looking to base some military actions against Iran from Iraq, with which it shares a border.

Additionally, the SDF, which recently captured the Syrian city of Raqqah, are refusing to turn it over to the Syrian government; SDF refuses to hand Raqqah over to the Syrian government

It is conceivably possible that the US military is thinking about using Raqqah a "base" for both operations against the Syrian government and Iran.

But I would politely suggest that the US government and military think twice about an attempted decap against Tehran; Russia has long stated that should Iran be attacked militarily, Russia will come to its aid.

And BTW, what specific charges does Secretary of State Tillerson hold against Iran's Revolutionary Guard?!? Sir, if you expect young Americans to die to neutralize Israel's "existential enemy du jour", I believe American mothers and fathers need a reason for this to happen, not just unspeicified accusations.

Man arrested after ‘good morning’ post was mistranslated by Facebook as ‘attack them’

A smiling Palestinian construction worker posted a photo of himself leaning against a bulldozer and holding a cup of coffee and a cigarette. He posted the photo on Facebook along with “good morning” in Arabic.

Israeli police, relying on Facebook’s translation service, believed the post said “attack them.” Haaretz reported, “The automatic translation service offered by Facebook uses its own proprietary algorithms. It translated ‘good morning’ as ‘attack them’ in Hebrew and ‘hurt them’ in English.”

The Palestinian man’s photo showed a bulldozer on the construction site in the Beitar Illit settlement which is located on the West Bank near Jerusalem. Bulldozers have been used in terror attacks against Israelis in the past.

Israeli police did not consult any Arabic-speaking officer, but instead relied completely on Facebook’s translation. As a result, the Palestinian man was arrested.

Assaults on freedom speech can be found in many aspects of American life these days, but one specific area that isn’t getting the attention it deserves relates to boycotts against Israel.

Israeli Merkava Hit by Hezbollah in 2006

This is what Hezbollah fighters did to Merkava MBT's in 2006 with Kornet ATGM's. The Israelis advanced up valleys without clearing the ridges. The Kornet outranged the Israeli's tank guns by over 1,000 meters and the Israelis couldn't elevate their tank cannons enough to shoot back anyway. They were out thought and out fought.
The IDF has been fighting unarmed people in the main since 1973. Hezbollah,the Iranians and Syrians are experienced blooded fighters with good weapons and tactics as well as strategy and they are backed up by The Bear. All the Israelis have left are nukes and the weakened US.

Thus, Israel is allegedly going to provide aid to the Kurdistan Regional Government against the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU).

While it’s very unlikely that Tel Aviv is ready to provide some kind of military assistance to the KRG, there are no doubts that the Israeli leadership is considering options to provide “humanitarian assistance” to the KRG.

Israel attacks on Golan sign of collusion with terrorists, Syria tells UN

Syria has criticized the UN Security Council for its inaction towards Israel’s fresh acts of aggression against its territory in the Golan Heights, denouncing the attacks as an example of Tel Aviv’s collaboration with terrorist groups.

In two letters sent to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the president of the UN Security Council on Saturday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry condemned Israel’s recent attacks as Tel Aviv’s “desperate attempt” to support terrorist groups in the area.

The letters warned about the serious repercussions of Israel’s repeated acts of aggression which they said constituted a flagrant violation of the principles of the UN Charter and the rule of international law, and expressed shock over the Security Council’s failure to condemn such Israeli attacks.

Kuwaiti Emir praises parliament speaker who expelled Israeli representative

The Emir of Kuwait Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah praised the Speaker of the Kuwaiti parliament, Marzouq al-Ghanim, who expelled a representative of the Israeli parliament from a recent meeting of the Inter-Parliament Union (IPU) held in Russia.

Al-Sabah sent a letter to Al-Ghanim stressing that his stance represents the official Kuwaiti position towards the Palestinians and their cause.

“We followed with much interest and appreciation your firm response to the representative of the Israeli Knesset at the final session of the IPU’s assembly in Saint Petersburg in Russia,” the Emir said.

That was in response to a comment made by a female Tunisian MP who accused the Israeli occupation of arresting and torturing Palestinian MPs and preventing them from attending this assembly.

The Real Danger of Refusing to Certify the Iran Deal

President Trump’s decision not to certify the Iran nuclear deal is reckless and dangerous. By all accounts—including that of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), America’s European allies, the U.S. intelligence community and Trump’s national security team—Iran has complied with the restrictive terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and significantly rolled back its nuclear program, while subjecting itself to the most intrusive inspections regime in the world.
Undermining a successful nonproliferation agreement in this way isolates America, sows doubt about its credibility and trustworthiness, signals to other rogue regimes, like North Korea, the imperative of a nuclear deterrent, and worst of all, needlessly puts the United States and Iran back on the road to confrontation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, the hubristic rantings of one of Trump's "President Whisperers", Israel's Bibi Nentanyahu, have driven President Trump over the edge of reason, and into a closed mindset that only a successful, regime-changing war against Iran will stop it from developing nuclear weapons past the point of no return.

There are three major factors absent President Trump's calculus on this; first, that Russia will, most certainly, come to Iran's aid if militarily attacked.

Secondly, the people of this country have become war weary and war sceptical about yet another potential military misadventure in the Middle East or other places, when the wars in Afghanistan; Iraq; Yemen; Libya; and Niger, continue to go horribly badly for this country.

And third, and perhaps most importantly, although President Trump has been getting much cheerleading for a potential attack against Iran by Israel and Saudi Arabia, the horrific costs of such an invasion will be borne only in American blood and American money.

As a businessman, President Trump needs, right now, to be thinking cost/benefit ratio for such a war; if he does not, the potential harm to this country, from such an attempted invasion and occupation if the US doesn't win it, will be extraordinary bad.

Syrian forces recover Israeli, NATO-made arms from Daesh hideouts

Syrian military forces have discovered a large cache of Israeli-made weapons in the strategic city of Mayadin in Dayr al-Zawr province, days after retaking the eastern city from Daesh terrorists.

The weapons included several types of heavy, medium and light firearms that beside Israel, came from some European countries as well as members of the NATO military alliance, Syria's state news agency SANA reported Thursday, citing a field commander.

The commander said they had also found mortars, artillery equipment, large quantities of anti-armor munitions and a NATO- made 155mm cannon with a range of up to 40km (about 25 miles).

This was not the first time that the Syrian government forces made such discoveries from terrorist hideouts across the country.

Texas city demands Hurricane Harvey victims not boycott Israel

Residents of one city in the US state of Texas are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to Israel if they want to receive funds for Hurricane Harvey relief, an approach that civil liberties experts say is illegal.

The city of Dickinson, a suburb of Houston, is requiring residents to sign a no-boycott pledge in order to receive disaster aid to recover from Harvey, a devastating hurricane that made landfall in August.

David Olson, an attorney for Dickinson, said city officials are following a Texas law that prohibits state agencies from contracting with or investing in companies that boycott Israel.

The so-called Anti-BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) law was signed in May by Texas Governor Gregg Abbott and took effect on September 1.

It was not immediately clear why citizens applying for disaster relief would be subject to a law that applies to state agencies and businesses.

China to ‘Compel’ Saudi Arabia to Trade Oil in Yuan – Ending Petrodollar as World Reserve Currency

The jig is up for the NWO gang that murdered JFK back in 1963 and has run America into the ground ever since.Their day is ending!

This week, a leading economist predicted a major paradigm shift, as Carl Weinberg, chief economist and managing director at High Frequency Economics told CNBC that China will “compel” Saudi Arabia to abandon the petrodollar, and instead, begin trading oil in yuan—a move he says is likely to precipitate the rest of the oil market following suit and abandoning the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency.

Weinberg noted that China is poised to clearly dominate the global landscape in terms of oil demand since surpassing the U.S. as the “biggest oil importer on the planet,” adding that Saudi Arabia will “pay attention to this because even as much as one or two years from now, Chinese demand will dwarf U.S. demand.”

Neocon Nikki Haley’s Anti-Iran Rage: Prelude to War?

Neocon Nikki Haley is Trump’s leading administration antagonist, notably on North Korea and Iran. Her hostile early September address on the Islamic Republic before the hawkish American Enterprise Institute preceded Trump’s decertification of the JCPOA nuclear deal – an international treaty the president defied by his action.

Haley’s address was a deplorable litany of beginning-to-end Big Lies. On Wednesday during a Security Council open debate on the Middle East, she was at it again.

Her remarks included a long laundry list of long ago discredited canards.

Washington, Israel, and its sinister AIPAC lobby resent Iranian sovereign independence, its military strength solely for defense – an obstacle to Israeli regional dominance, along with America’s presence.

Were Haley’s hostile Wednesday remarks prelude for initiating diabolical Trump administration plans ahead, including naked aggression against the country – nuclear deal decertification a starter for what’s to come?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sure that Haley's strongest qualifications for the job as Bimbobassador to the UN, was her unswavering, slavish affection for Israel, allowing her to believe that this country can do no wrong, and an absolute, nearly pathological inability to look at facts, and make intelligent conclusions from a review of the facts.

A thinking Ambassador to the UN would be loathe to be condemn both North Korea and Iran for trying to defend their countries, and would be condemning Israel's flagrant collective punishment of the Palestinians; unfortunately, that is not what we have in Ambassador Haley, and the world may suffer terribly from this.

Israeli Forces Ransack, Shut Down Palestinian Media Companies

The Israeli occupation forces at predawn time Wednesday shut down and ransacked the headquarters of Palestinian media production companies, citing incitement reasons, during raids in Ramallah, Nablus, al-Khalil, and Bethlehem, in the West Bank.

The Israeli army stormed the headquarters of TransMedia, PalMedia, and Ramsat news agencies in al-Khalil, Ramallah, Nablus, and Bethlehem, before they seized their equipment. The army shut down the offices of TransMedia and PalMedia for six months under a military order.

The occupation soldiers had rolled into Nablus at the crack of dawn in over 30 military vehicles and ransacked the offices of PalMedia and TransMedia before they sealed them off with red wax and metal plates.

At the same time, violent clashes burst out in al-Shuhadaa Square, where the Israeli forces attacked Palestinian protesters with heavy spates of bullet fire and teargas canisters. A Palestinian youth sustained bullet injuries and dozens more choked on teargas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow, you don't think, possibly, the Israeli Army shut down the Palestinian free press because it was speaking the truth about the occupation, always translated is "incitement"?!?

Then he went into politics and joined a moderate right-wing party, and was appointed Minister for the Protection of the Environment.

Summer 1954– Lavon Affair– Israel recruits Egyptian Jews to blow up American and British targets in Egypt. Israel planned on blaming the murderous false-flag attacks on the Muslim Brotherhood in an effort to garner support from the US and Britain. After officially denying any involvement, the Israeli government finally admitted their role in the incident in 2005 by honoring the surviving agents with a certificate of appreciation.

1955-1970- Israel Steals American Uranium to Build It’s First Nuclear Weapons– In 2011, the Institute for Research on Middle Eastern Policy examined hundreds of newly de-classified documents from the FBI and CIA and discovered that Israeli spies in collaboration with American Jews stole hundreds of kilograms of weapons grade uranium from US stockpiles and shipped it to Israel. Although Israel does not officially acknowledge the possession of nuclear weapons, their nuclear arsenal is estimated at between 200-300 nuclear weapons. (Source)

When It Comes to Israel Accountability, UN and EU Are All Talk and No Walk

It is welcome news to hear that eight European Union countries are demanding Israel compensate them for the demolition of new school facilities for Bedouin communities in the occupied West Bank. A letter from the eight member states is expected to be delivered to Israel's Foreign Ministry in the coming days. Belgium is said to be leading the move, followed by France, Spain, Sweden, Luxembourg, Italy, Ireland and Denmark. In August, Israel demolished structures intended to serve as classrooms in various Bedouin communities and confiscated solar panels on another structure being used as a school. The regime authorities claimed the buildings were constructed illegally, while Palestinian activists and EU diplomats countered that Israel makes it almost impossible to obtain building permission. The letter, initially reported in France's Le Monde, said the eight countries would demand over €30,000 (£27,000) in compensation if Israel does not return the seized equipment.

IDF attacks Syrian army post in retaliation for errant rocket

The IDF attacked a Syrian army post on the outskirts of Quneitra on Thursday afternoon in retaliation for an errant rocket that landed in Israel.

According to reports in Sham FM radio, which is affiliated with the Syrian regime, and the Lebanese news site Elnashra, no one was hurt in the IDF attack.

The rocket, which is believed to be "spillover" from the fighting raging across the border, landed in an open area in the northern Golan Heights. No one was hurt and no damage was reported.

IRGC vows enhanced Iranian missile power in face of threats

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has sharply denounced the US president’s hostile policies and insults against the Iranian nation, vowing that the country will speed up its conventional missile program and regional role in response to enemy threats.

In a Thursday statement, the IRGC stressed the Guards’ resolve to defend the Iranian nation’s security and emphasized that it will not waver in its resolve to stand against the global “hegemonic system” and “the vicious network of international Zionism.”

The elite Iranian force further stressed that the Islamic Republic’s regional influence and missile program, which came to fruition under tough sanctions, will incessantly continue to expand.

The IRGC statement slammed the “rogue” and “lightheaded” president of the US, Donald Trump, for insulting the Iranian nation and paving the way for cruel sanctions against Iran’s Guards in his mid-October speech.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look, if you had a powerful foreign leader PUBLICLY threaten your country at the UN with the possibility of a war and national extinction against your people, wouldn't you take the precise same steps as Iran and North Korea are doing?!?

Logic says, HELL YES!!

Unfortunately, these statements from the IRGC are going to play right into Trump's and Netanyahu's plans to further demonize Iran, as a prelude to a war against it.

But Americans had better wake up to the stark reality that the costs of this war, which may well include war with Russia, whose leadership have long pledged military support of Iran should it be attacked, will only be paid in American blood and American money.
