Russia warns of US 'excuse for new conflict' with Iran

Moscow has warned Washington over claims that Iran was behind the deaths of more than 600 US troops in Iraq, saying the allegation is aimed at escalating tensions with Tehran.

"We were surprised to read the statement by US State Department Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook, in which he claims that Iran is involved in the death of 600 US troops in Iraq," said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Thursday.

Zakharova stressed that the US needs to be held responsible for its provocative statements amid Washington's extreme "anti-Iranian sentiment."

"There is an impression that the US is thinking up another excuse to explain the escalation of relations with Iran if they deem it appropriate," she said.

No New Options Left for US to Restrict Iran's ForeignTrade

Caretaker of the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran Mohammad Reza Modoudi underlined that Washington has used all its cards in the anti-Iran game and is empty-handed to further pressure the country in foreign trade.

"The US made use of all sanctions measures against Iran's foreign trade in the last Iranian year (ended on March 20)," Modoudi told FNA on Friday.

He lauded Iran's performance in foreign trade despite the economic war launched by Washington against the country, and said the volume of Tehran's trade ties with a number of countries has set a record last year.

US-Saudi arms deals 'dramatically understated'

An American think tank says it has found new data showing US arms deals with Saudi Arabia and the UAE are "dramatically understated" and billions more than previously reported.

The data collected by arms trade watchdog Security Assistance Monitor (SAM) shows the US has struck at least $68.2 billion worth of deals with the two countries since they started their war in Yemen.

The colossal sum includes, for the first time, both commercial and governmental arms deals and indicates that US involvement in the disastrous war may be greater than suspected>>>

No Exit Order

An irretrievable part of my existence was lost forever. It took one year and 3 court appeals to be allowed to see my newborn son.

A one night stand. No violence. No strings attached. How did I become the most despised father on earth? A situation twisted beyond compare.

Having this experience in mind, I began a deep research into why some mothers are doing this psychological abuse against fathers.

It didn’t take me long to discover that the “End is Near” nowadays, or some “Men Go Their Own Ways” MGTOW.

Or the existence of “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” to call attention of sexual intolerance and satirises issues of gender and morality. While on top of this circus others believe in a sperm war happening all over the world.

And “radfems” or Radical Feminism within wealthy Nordic States like Norway and Sweden especially, leading the Amazonian crowd.

Candidate Pete Buttigieg: Israel’s Security Policy Offers “Important Lessons” for the US

— Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, whose candidacy is currently being heavily promoted by corporate media, was one of the many 2020 contenders for the Democratic Party who declined to attend the recent annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in apparent response to calls from prominent “progressive” organizations to boycott the event and a growing shift among Democratic voters in favor of Palestinian rights.

However, despite his absence from the AIPAC conference, Buttigieg’s past public statements on the Israel/Palestine conflict echo those of pro-Israel stalwarts in the Democratic Party

Iraqi Sources: Over 10,000 US Forces Deployed in Al-Anbar

Over 10,000 US forces are stationed in two occupied bases in al-Anbar province in Western Iraq, Iraqi sources reported on Thursday.

The Arabic-language al-Ma'alomeh news website quoted the head of Badr Organization's office in al-Anbar province as saying that the number of US forces deployed in Ein al-Assad and al-Habaniyeh bases has increased to 10,000, adding that they have been supplied with the state-of-the-art weapons and military equipment.

The official said that the two bases also host the US marines who have been transferred recently from Syria to the region, noting that 90% of the US soldiers in Iraq are combat forces and are not considered as military advisors.

Turkish FM says no turning back from Russia arms deal

Turkey will not turn back from a major arms deal with Russia despite the US suspension of Ankara from the F-35 fighter-jet program, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Wednesday.

"The S-400 deal is a done deal and we will not step back from this," he told a think-tank forum in Washington, where he is taking part in 70th anniversary celebrations of NATO.

The United States said Monday that it was halting shipment of F-35 parts of Turkey as well as joint manufacturing work due to Ankara's purchase of the S-400 missile defense system from Russia.

Israeli group says network of bots is stumping for Netanyahu

An Israeli watchdog group said Monday that it found a network of social media bots disseminating messages in support of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of next week’s elections.

Noam Rotem and Yuval Adam, two researchers operating the Big Bots Project, said in a report that they uncovered hundreds of fake accounts spreading messages in support of Netanyahu’s Likud party and smearing his opponents. Likud denied the allegations.

Adam said his project discovered a network that included a number of real people, along with hundreds of Twitter accounts that appeared to be fake or duplicate.

“One person might be operating tens or hundreds of accounts at the same time,” he told The Associated Press.

Palestinians pray for fish as Israel opens deeper waters

As their rickety motorboats puttered out into deep Mediterranean waters for the first time in almost two decades, the Palestinian fishermen prayed for deepwater mackerel and tuna to supplement Gaza's usual shallows fare of sardines, shrimp and crab.

This week, as part of Egyptian-mediated efforts to ease the plight of 2 million residents of the blockaded Gaza Strip, Israel has extended the area where it permits Palestinians to fish.

"Such a distance has been off-limits. And hopefully there are lots of fish to bring back," said 69-year-old fisherman Ahmed al-Amoudi.

After Gaza slaughter, Buttigieg praised Israeli security responses as ‘moving’ and faulted Democrats for easy judgment

Last May, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg went to Israel with the American Jewish Committee and two weeks later discussed his trip with that organization. At the time Israel was killing Palestinian protesters at the Gaza fence– 60 on one day within days of Buttigieg’s visit, getting global attention — yet Buttigieg repeatedly praised Israel’s security arrangements as “moving” and “clear-eyed”, said the U.S. could learn something from them, and blamed Palestinians and Hamas for the “misery” in Gaza.

He also faulted fellow Democrats for making snap judgments based on “90-second cable news versions of what’s going on over there.”

GERMAN REASON FOR A FREE PALESTINE

Thousands of Palestinians along the border fence to the “Jewish State” have shown the international community what dignity and resistance means. It is frightening how the German press portrays this march and falsifies facts. When one reads the German editorial (D) media, one is already used to a lot of distortions, but what was reported this time to cover the first anniversary of the Great March of Return, exceeded any measure of objective reporting. Many of the articles read such that the inexperienced reader might think that it is not the Zionist occupiers but Hamas who are responsible for the blockade and misery in the Gaza concentration camp.

With Friends Like These: Abusive Frenemies and American Mideast Policy

Pop quiz: name the two largest (by far) recipients of U.S. foreign military aid and one other country which recently negotiated the biggest American arms sale deal in world history. Let’s call them the Big three (beneficiaries of largesse, that is).

Ready for the (not-so) shocking answers? So, the military dictatorship is Egypt – recipient of $1.3 billion in military aid per annum. The nation that conquered and annexed adjacent territory is Israel – the donee of some $3.1 billion in military aid each year; and, ironically, the state that US leaders regularly (if incorrectly) tout as the “only democracy in the Mideast.” And the charming, child-starving, woman-beheading regime: that’s the theocracy and absolute monarchy of Saudi Arabia – future owner (maybe) of a record $110 billion in US military equipment. Now that’s a proud lot!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rewarding bad behaviour, at the national level, is one of the lousiest things the Unhinged, Surveilled State of America can do, and yet it continues doing just that.

Here's a good analogy; just think about a parent whose teenage son gets drunk, drives off while well tanked, and gets himself into an horrific accident, resulting in multiple deaths and woundings, and what does the dad do?!?

Goes out and gets the kid another car, of course!!

Folks, the US government is driving this world into an oblivion of hate, war, and pestilence, the likes of which humankind has never seen before. It appears that most members of the American political class (except for Ro Khanna, whose bi-partisan legislation to stop the US's wars I respect highly), believe that US foreign policy ... always has to come with bombs, bullets, and whatever hellfire they can conjure, raining down death from above, against any and every nation with the nerve to be sitting over some resource which the US government wants to expropriate, regime change that the government, and make sure that this resource is only sold with American dollars.

This formula is so transparent, that I cannot imagine why people don't see it; yet, because of all the distractions and diversions put in their way, US citizens just don't see it, or won't see it, until, unfortunately, it may be far too late to save this country, and the world, from an ELE (extinction level event).

I do believe that there is a different path this country should be taking, a path of peace, with a lot more positive outcomes than what I see in current foreign policy, but it will take a formidable, will and absolute honesty, of every American citizen, to make that happen.

I hope, and pray, that my brother and sister Americans are up to the journey. It will be long, and hard, and they may never mention our influence in history books yet to be written; but it is imperative that we come together, with hope and optimism, to make this world a better place.

He reiterated that since all the accounts of the Iranian Red Crescent Society have been frozen [by the US], no one can send financial aid from overseas.

U.S. Eyes New Front to Combat Iran in Golan Heights

The Trump administration’s recent recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the contested Golan Heights territory is part of a larger effort by the White House to open new fronts in efforts to combat Iranian militants and terror proxies in the region, according to U.S. officials familiar with the decision.

President Donald Trump won plaudits from the pro-Israel community and allies on Capitol Hill when he announced that America would officially recognize the Golan territory on Israel’s northern border as belonging to the Jewish state, which annexed the area following war with Syria several decades ago.

U.S. officials last week faced down critics of this decision at the United Nations, a forum unfriendly to the Jewish state, telling member countries that the Trump administration will take every step necessary to protect Israel’s right to self defense against Iranian militants and Hezbollah fighters who have used the Golan area to launch terrorist attacks on Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, it makes sense that President Trump may well think that the Golan Area is the perfect "base" from which he can attack Iranian and Syrian forces, and that was why he tried to lend some "credibility and legitimacy" to Israel's having annexed this area.

Prepare to see major deployments of US military into this area, and most probably, very soon.

Video: US Says Syrian Army Must Withdraw from Golan Heights’ Contact Line

On March 28, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came with a new statement claiming that his country will continue working against Iranian presence in Syria. The statement shows that the Israeli military is set to continue its military campaign in Syria.

In own turn, the US did not limit its recent actions in support of Tel Aviv to recognizing the Golan Heights as Israeli territory. It also demanded the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to withdraw from the separation line area established in the framework of the 1974 Disengagement Agreement. US-Israeli efforts to force the SAA to do so could easily turn the Golan Heights into a new hot point and fuel the Syrian conflict further.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, this may be precisely what the US and Israel are hoping, and planning for; The Israeli elections are only 7 days away, on 9 April, so having a military "win" if Syrian forces either attack, or refuse to pull back, would distract the Israeli voting public from Netanyahu's corruption trial.

The big question is, if this happens, what will Russia do?!?!?

Harvard undergrad council votes to fund Israeli Apartheid Week

Harvard University’s Undergraduate Council (UC) voted to allocate the Palestine Solidarity Committee (PSC) $2,050 to host Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) at Sunday’s general meeting.

According to student newspaper the Crimson, “the bill to fund IAW passed 21-13-4 and drew money from the UC’s Grant for an Open Harvard College, which subsidizes student initiatives that address one of the UC’s indicated ‘compelling interests’.”

The interests for the 2018-19 academic year are “mental health, race, culture, and faith relations, sexual assault and harassment prevention, social spaces, and financial accessibility.”

The report stated that “the PSC planned much of the programming of Harvard’s event, which began on March 30 and runs until April 4”, including “Palestinian speakers, a student panel, an unveiling of a physical Wall of Resistance, and a movie screening”.

How Israel spies on US campaigners

This week on The Electronic Intifada Podcast, co-hosts Nora Barrows-Friedman and Asa Winstanley are joined by Hatem Bazian, a lecturer at the University of California, Berkeley, and chair of American Muslims for Palestine.

Bazian talks about being the target of a black ops intimidation campaign reportedly organized by Psy-Group, an Israeli intelligence firm staffed by former Mossad agents, which spied on activists and professors on US campuses.

In 2017, when he walked outside his Berkeley home to take his young daughter to school, Bazian says that flyers were posted on the windshields of cars with images of his face and that of Rebecca Vilkomerson, the executive director of Jewish Voice for Peace, accusing them of being terrorists and supporting terrorism.

The flyers were also posted on the windshields of cars in downtown Berkeley, close to the university campus entrance, and similar ones were posted around the campus itself.

GIVING ISRAEL THE GOLAN HEIGHTS IS THE PRICE PAID BY ASSAD TO STAY IN POWER

Trump’s decision not only preserves the status quo and legitimises Israel’s occupation, but is also tantamount to declaring war on international norms, represented by the UN and international law. At a stroke he has imposed the law of the jungle on the Middle East and its people.

Whether the Golan Heights was sold for money or a guarantee of the presidency for Hafez Al-Assad, or both, is not really the issue. Either way, the betrayal is clear. The result was Israel’s occupation of the Golan Heights and Hafez Al-Assad becoming president after his military coup against President Nureddin Al-Atassi in 1971.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an interesting observation; but the real question, and the true "power behind the throne" behind Syria, is Russia.

And I have to ask; will Russia allow this to remain a stable situation?!? My sense is that President Putin is, by both nature and intelligence, a cautious man, and will simply allow this to continue. But if there are any more "nicks and scrapes" against the sovereignty of Syria in other parts of the country, by either Israel and/or the US (which still has troops in Syria, BTW) Putin may "turn loose", militarily, on both entities.

I would like to hope (and pray) that such a scenario will not happen; this country's military doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money, or the manufacturing, to insure a positive outcome to a war against Russia in Syria (or anywhere else).

'Shoot to maim': How Israel created a generation on crutches in Gaza

Israeli snipers have intentionally maimed Palestinians protesting in Gaza over the past year, creating a generation of disabled youth and overwhelming the territory's already crippled medical system, frontline doctors tell Middle East Eye.

According to a United Nations inquiry released this month, over 80 percent of the 6,106 protesters wounded in the first nine months of the Great March of Return were shot in the lower limbs.

Israeli soldiers intentionally shot civilians and may have committed war crimes in their heavy-handed response to the protests, which have been held regularly across Gaza since 30 March 2018, the report concluded.

Healthcare providers say the pattern of wounds shows that Israeli soldiers are purposefully shooting to maim protesters, most of whom are in their 20s and now require long-term medical care.

Silicon Shtetl: These Haredi Startups Are Headed to New York

The ultra-Orthodox population is underrepresented in Israel’s booming technology ecosystem. According to a 2017 study by the Israeli Ministry of Finance, ultra-Orthodox Jews make up around 10% of the population but only 0.7% of those employed in the tech sector. This discrepancy is partially attributed to a focus on religious studies by many ultra-Orthodox men and to a network-based recruitment process that favors veterans of elite military units, leaving out Israel’s marginalized groups, including ultra-Orthodox Jews and Arabs with an Israeli citizenship.

Netanyahu campaign boosted by slander bots calling opponent 'mentally ill', 'gay', 'rapist' – report

Ahead of parliamentary elections in Israel next week, a watchdog group claims to have exposed a network of fake accounts supporting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and slandering his opponents, including false rape accusations.

In a campaign already marred by pending corruption and bribery charges, Netanyahu's Likud party certainly does not need another scandal with eight days left before Israelis head to the polls. Nonetheless, a selectively released report by Noam Rotem and Yuval Adam of social-media watchdog group Big Bots Project claims that a nexus of hundreds of fake accounts has been disseminating messages of support for the ruling party, while maliciously attacking their opponents. While it is difficult to say exactly how many fake accounts were actually involved, the project identified at least 400.

Last week, US President Donald Trump signed a proclamation formally recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights after meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House.

The Golan Heights has been mostly under Israel's control since the country seized the territory during the 1967 Six Day War. While Israel adopted a law to annex the territory in 1981, the United Nations declared the move void, without any legal effects. In 2018, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution urging Israel to immediately withdraw its forces from the territory after the country organized local elections in the area on 30 October.

America Has Shown Its Approval Of Territorial Theft

Is there any other country on Earth with which America would dare collude on such a scale? Forget the “special relationship” with the crackpots in Britain, or the New World coming to the rescue of the Old World in the Second World War. There’s only one special relationship that matters right now – and we all know what that is. Having given its blessing to all Jerusalem as Israeli property and having now handed Golan to Israel as a possession – for “to annex” means “to take possession”, does it not? – Donald Trump has undermined the entire foundation of “land for peace” enshrined in Security Council Resolution 242. And Israel is happy. A gift for Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election, we are told.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – APRIL 1, 2019: US SAYS SYRIAN ARMY MUST WITHDRAW FROM GOLAN HEIGHTS’ CONTACT LINE

Over 50 ISIS members were eliminated by strikes of the US-led coalition in the outskirt of the town of al-Baghuz al-Fawqani in the Euphrates Valley over the past few days, local sources reported. The airstrikes were a part of the operation of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the coalition in the area, which is ongoing despite a formal US statement declaring defeat over ISIS.

According to local sources, a notable number of ISIS members is still hiding in a network of caves and underground tunnels in the area.

Besides this, ISIS cells within the SDF-held area have recently carried out a series of attacks killing at least 10 SDF members near the town of Diban and in the area of the Omar oil fields, on the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

Fake Twitter accounts being used to garner support for Netanyahu

An Israeli watchdog group has found a network of hundreds of social media accounts, many of them fake, used to smear opponents of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in next week’s election and to amplify the messages of his Likud party, the New York Times reported citing an independent organisation known as the Big Bots Project.

The watchdog said that “the network operates through manipulations, slander, lies and spreading rumours” and that “on its busiest days, the network sends out thousands of tweets a day.”

The network’s activity is said to have intensified almost fivefold since the election was called in December, and “is mobilized at climactic moments for Netanyahu, such as the announcement of the indictment against him.”

It’s suspected that the network may have violated Israeli laws pertaining to elections, campaign finance, privacy and taxation.

WATCH Palestinian 'March of Return' Rocks Gaza on Protests' First Anniversary

The organisers of the Palestinian protests dubbed the 'Great March of Return' plan to mark the first anniversary along the borders of the Gaza Strip on Saturday with large-scale rallies. The Israeli military reported that they had completed preparations for the Saturday events, reinforcing the southern district with forces and equipment.

How the Israel Lobby Got its Start

This conference speaks truth to power. We gather here because we support truth and justice in Palestine. We also insist on a free and open discussion of the Israel lobby and its impact on American democracy and world politics.

All of you already know that the Israel lobby is extremely powerful—for the record, it constitutes easily the most powerful diaspora lobby representing the interests of a foreign nation in all of American history—but you may not know how deeply rooted it is. In fact, the extensive lobbying efforts of Zionists and their Jewish and Christian sympathizers in the United States predate the creation of Israel and flourished throughout the first generation of the Palestine conflict.

Amid a festive atmosphere, tens of thousands of Palestinians gathered in Gaza along the boundary fence with Israel on Saturday to mark the first anniversary of the Great March of Return.

They were also marking Land Day, the annual commemoration of Israel’s lethal suppression of protests against land confiscations in the Galilee in 1976.

Like every week over the last year, unarmed protesters demanded an end to the decade-long siege of Gaza and asserted their right to return to familial lands now in Israel and were met with lethal force by Israeli occupation forces stationed across the fence.

Adham Nidal Amara, 17, was directly injured in the face and killed as he took part in the rallies east of Gaza City, and Tamer Hisham Abu al-Khair, also 17, was fatally shot in the chest, east of Khan Younis.

Gazan youth: ‘Stop protesting in return for not getting killed? We want more than that’

March 30 is the one-year anniversary of the launch of the Great Return March protests in Gaza—called officially to demand Palestinians’ right to return to their ancestral homeland, but really about the continuing suffocation of the Strip’s 2 million population in ways both large and small for the past 12 years. In the most basic terms, the protests are the “what-else-can-we-do” action of a people who know they only get attention when they are being killed and wounded in large enough numbers to make the international news.

“We’re tightening the security ring around the Gaza Strip,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says. “I’ve recently ordered that [military] units be reinforced, that tools be added, in preparation for an extensive campaign.”

‘New York Times’ reports that Jewish donors shape Democrats’ regressive position on Israel

This weekend the New York Times breaks one of the biggest taboos, describing the responsibility of Jewish donors for the Democratic Party’s slavish support for Israel. Nathan Thrall’s groundbreaking piece repeats a lot of data we’ve reported here and says in essence that it really is about the Benjamins, as Rep. Ilhan Omar said so famously.

The donor class of the party is overwhelmingly Jewish, and Jews are still largely wed to Zionism– that’s the nut.

Though that party is breaking up. Thrall’s labors are minimized by the New York Times with the headline “The Battle Over B.D.S.,” but his message is that the progressive base has a highly-critical view of Israel that the leadership has refused to reflect, and that’s about to change. We’re inside the tent. The party is going to have to reflect pro-Palestinian positions. Ben Rhodes tells Thrall that the moment of overcoming the fear of the pro-Israel lobby (as the Cuba fear was overcome) is about to happen.

'We're not leaving': Gaza marks Great March of Return anniversary

Tens of thousands of Palestinians have rallied at the Israel-Gaza fence to mark the first anniversary of the "Great March of Return" protests, facing off against Israeli tanks and troops massed on the fortified perimeter.

Israeli forces on Saturday used live rounds, rubber bullets and tear gas on the protesters, killing a 17-year-old boy at a protest site east of Gaza city, and wounding at least 59 people, according to Gaza's health ministry.

Another Palestinian was killed in an overnight demonstration ahead of the main protest, the ministry said.

Palestinians are demanding the right to return to lands from which their families were violently expelled during the founding of Israel in 1948. They are also calling for an end to Israel's and Egypt's 12-year blockade of Gaza.
