Saudi mufti decree allows troops on Yemen border to break fast

Amid Saudi Arabia’s continued aggression on Yemen, the kingdom’s Grand Mufti exempts Saudi soldiers, stationed on the border with the southern neighbor, from observing regular fasting.

Abdul-Aziz ibn Abdullah Al ash-Sheikh sanctioned that the soldiers break their fast during their “Jihad” against the “enemy,” Lebanese broadcaster Al-Manar reported on its website on Friday, citing the Saudi daily, Okaz.

“I felicitate you on the blessed month of Ramadan as you are stationed on the battlefield,” the top religious figure said in remarks addressed to the troopers.

The Wahhabi figure has gained notoriety for his various controversial and radical decrees, including his reported decree in 2007 for the demolition of the tomb of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and an edict five later for the destruction of all the churches across the Middle East.

Syriza: Plunder, Pillage and Prostration

How the ‘Hard Left’ embraces the policies of the Hard Right

Greece has been in the headlines of the world’s financial press for the past five months, as a newly elected leftist party, ‘Syriza’, which ostensibly opposes so-called ‘austerity measures’, faces off against the “Troika” (International Monetary Fund, the European Commission and European Central Bank).

Early on, the Syriza leadership, headed by Alexis Tsipras, adopted several strategic positions with fatal consequences – in terms of implementing their electoral promises to raise living standards, end vassalage to the ‘Troika’ and pursue an independent foreign policy.

We will proceed by outlining the initial systemic failures of Syriza and the subsequent concessions further eroding Greek living standards and deepening Greece’s role as an active collaborator of US and Israeli imperialism.

American dreaming, from G1 to Bilderberg

G1 plus junior partners? Bilderberg? Get a job; you’re not the only show in town, any town.

What’s the connection between the G7 summit in Germany, President Putin’s visit to Italy, the Bilderberg club meeting in Austria, and the TTIP – the US-EU free trade deal – negotiations in Washington?

We start at the G7 in the Bavarian Alps – rather G1 with an added bunch of “junior partners” – as US President Barack Obama gloated about his neo-con induced feat; regiment the EU to soon extend sanctions on Russia even as the austerity-ravaged EU is arguably hurting even more than Russia.

The “civilized” G1 + junior partners could not possibly argue whether they would collectively risk a nuclear war on European soil over a Kiev-installed ‘Banderastan’, sorry, “Russian aggression.”

Yemen: The Silent Slaughter

There are shortages of food, cooking gas, fuel and drugs…The health system is collapsing. Patients with chronic diseases cannot get their drugs, bodies are on the streets, and the city is an open dump with trash covering the streets….It is extremely important to lift the blockade on food and medication and to set up unobstructed channels for air, sea and land access, to provide the population with what they need to survive.

Hawkish Hillary Clinton and Her Israel-First Political Sugar Daddy Haim Saban

Considerable attention has been devoted to the millions of dollars Bill and Hillary Clinton have received from wealthy individuals and corporations for their foundation and for themselves.

Hillary Clinton’s greatest billionaire backer has been Haim Saban, a dual United States-Israel citizen and hardline supporter of Israel, who has openly commented, “I’m a one-issue guy, and my issue is Israel.”

It would not be beyond the realm of possibility that those who handed over tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Clinton Foundation (some of which took place while Hillary was Secretary of State) or to the couple themselves for speaker fees expected favors in return.

Explosion destroys part of Yemen's UNESCO heritage site; Saudi Arabia denies responsibility

A protected 2,500-year-old cultural heritage site in Yemen’s capital was obliterated in an explosion early Friday, and witnesses and news reports said the cause was a missile or bomb from a Saudi warplane. The Saudi military denied responsibility.

The top antiquities-safeguarding official at the United Nations angrily condemned the destruction of ancient multistory homes, towers and gardens, which also killed an unspecified number of residents in Al Qasimi, a neighborhood in Sanaa’s Old City area.

“I am profoundly distressed by the loss of human lives as well as the damage inflicted on one of the world’s oldest jewels of Islamic urban landscape,” said the official, Irina Bokova, the director general of UNESCO, the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It may have been Israel, which has a political motive to erase archaeological evidence of ancient cultures to counter the fact no archaeological evidence exists supporting the claimed great Kingdoms of David and Solomon.Israel's entire claim to the lands of the Palestinians rests on biblical myths about the Kingdoms of David and Solomon and the First Temple, for which there is no hard archaeological evidence. The two best known claimed artifacts for the First Temple, the Pomegranate Temple Staff ornament and the Jehoash Tablet have been exposed as clever forgeries, and locations in Israel said to be connected with David and Solomon are so named out of tradition and "confirmation bias", with archaeologists admitting there is no actual hard data as to what they really were. Contrast that with other nations such as Egypt, Iraq, Iran, etc. where one cannot take three steps without tripping over the evidence of their ancient histories. Such a plethora of archaeological evidence in other countries has proven to be a severe embarrassment to Israel as it underscores the paucity of such evidence for what Israel declares to be its historical origins. Much of the Torah is now known to have simply been copied from other sources. The story of the Exodus actually happened to the Hyksos, not the Hebrews, and the story of the great flood was copied almost verbatim from the Epic of Gilgamesh. People can be forgiven for asking if the stories of the First Temple are also likewise purloined from other places and peoples. So Israel's governments, which justifies its theft on those stories, has a powerful motive to want the archaeological sites in other countries erased, to "level the playing field" by reducing the obvious contrast in the amount of such remains in other countries versus Israel itself. This may explain why, following the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, armed forces guarded the oil ministry while the Baghdad Museum was left wide open for looting and why American forces defaced the ancient city of UR, including building portions of a runway over the site.

Congressmen back role of Saudi Arabia in the region

The Congress members appreciated the role of the Kingdom in bringing back legitimacy to Yemen, saying that Saudi Arabia should be extended all possible support on this matter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Legitmacy?!?" Back in 2011, the US covertly overthrew Yemen's government and installed a puppet ruler, Hadi. This is common practice for the US Government as they have done this against fifty other nations since the end of WW2, including Cuba in 1952, Iran in 1953, Guatalama in 1954, Chile in 1973, Iraq in 2003, Afghanistan in 2004, Egypt in 1981 and again in 2013, Libya in 2011, Ukraine in 2014, etc. etc. etc. Back in 2012, Obama proclaimed the installation of the US puppet Hadi as a "successful" US intervention.

But the interventions are not always a success, especially when the people of a nation understand the real hand behind their civil strife. As a result, many of these conquered nations have successfully taken themselves back from US puppet rule such as Cuba in 1959, Iran in 1979, Chile in 1990, Egypt in 2011, and now Yemen, Libya, and eastern Ukraine in play. The US wants to stop this trend of conquered people refusing to stay conquered, but faced with a war-weary American people on the eve of an election year, is using Saudi Arabia as a proxy to do their dirty work of forcing the people of Yemen back under US puppet ruler Hadi.

"Legitimacy" my ASS!

Coalition ‘not over’ until UN resolution takes effect: GCC

The Saudi-led coalition bombing Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen for more than two months will continue until a UN resolution calling for a rebel pullback takes effect, Qatar's foreign minister said on Thursday.

That the same UN that pussied-out and gave Israel a free pass for all the kids they murder? Why is anyone even listening to them?

What Saudi Arabia is saying is that they are going to go on bombing the Yemen people (including children) until Yemen accepts their US-puppet ruler Hadi back!

Adelson’s Anti-BDS Event Links Money To Action

The “secret” Vegas weekend focused on planning for, and funding, a campaign to kill BDS in its academic cradle.

With U.S. billionaires both funding and setting up its top down strategy with Israeli-inspired organizations on American campuses, Israel’s successful invasion of U.S. institutions takes another major step toward “occupying” American institutions.

Four days after the Salon posting appeared, The New York Times buried two paragraphs about the Vegas event inside a longer story which featured the success Israel was enjoying in gaining anti-BDS support in state legislatures in South Carolina and Illinois.

This campaign against American supporters of Palestinian freedom, was prompted by the alarmed awareness among Israeli leaders, and their U.S. allies, that the BDS movement is rapidly gaining ground.

A Rapprochement Or Just Wishful Thinking?

Iranian people have no problem with a rapprochement with the United States...…?Iran could prove to be a powerful strategic partner to the United States, as long as its independence and regional influence are not threatened.

While Mr. Obama had, realistically speaking, no better alternative in choosing the timing for his administration’s foreign policy reorientation, a meaningful follow-through to implement his vision after his term in office expires would need a new Chief Executive with similar convictions; and, as things appear now, that prospect seems somewhat in doubt.

The current jockeying by potential candidates for the 2016 presidential elections is a perfect example of how true national interests are sacrificed for the sake of personal gains.

The Saudi Finger-pointing at Iran

Riyadh’s increasingly destructive war in Yemen has sparked overripe discussion in Western capitals about Iran’s use of “proxies” to subvert otherwise “legitimate” Middle Eastern governments. Driving such discussion is a self-serving narrative, promoted by Israel as well as by Saudi Arabia, about Tehran’s purported quest to “destabilize” and, ultimately, “take over” the region.

Saudi Ambassador Warns West On Iran Deal: "All Options On Table..." Including Nukes

We previously warned of the risks of escalation in The Middle East to something much more dangerous, but, as the Saudi ambassador to UK confirmed today, the risk of Wahhabis going nuclear is even higher than many expected, "...if [Iran will not offer assurances it will not pursue nuclear weapons], then all options will be on the table for Saudi Arabia... Iran’s nuclear program poses a direct threat to the entire region and constitutes a major source and incentive for nuclear proliferation across the Middle East, including Israel."

Secret Directive 11 codifies Islamists takeover of ME, Muslim Brotherhood Alliance with Obama

Directive 11 brought together activists and operatives at multiple agencies to come up with a “tailored” approach for regime change in each country. The goal was to “manage” the political transitions. It tossed aside American national security interests by insisting that Islamist regimes would be equally committed to fighting terrorism and cooperating with Israel. Its greatest gymnastic feat may have been arguing that the best way to achieve political stability in the region was through regime change.

What little we know about the resulting classified 18-page report is that it used euphemisms to call for aiding Islamist takeovers in parts of the Middle East. Four countries were targeted. Of those four, we only know for certain that Egypt and Yemen were on the list. But we do know for certain the outcome.

Meanwhile, ISIS has been found across the border in Mexico.

Saudi-Led Airstrikes Kill At Least 45 In Yemen Capital

Saudi-led airstrikes during the pre-dawn hours on Sunday reportedly killed at least 45 people at the headquarters of Yemen’s armed forces located in the capital city of Sanaa. The attacks came after Saudi Arabia intercepted a Scud missile fired off by Houthi militias on Saturday, escalating a conflict that started in September when the rebels swept in and seized parts of the city.

Survey Says: Saudis Consider Iran a Greater Threat Than Israel, ISIL

US Deployment of Missiles in Europe May Lead to Russia’s Exit From INF

Russia is fully complying with commitments made under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) and does not want to withdraw from it, Viktor Ozerov, the Chairman of the Federation Council on Defense and Security, told RIA Novosti.
However, if the United States decides to put its missiles in Eastern Europe, Russia will seriously consider pulling out of the agreement, Ozerov said.

Earlier, AP reported that the Obama Administration plans to deploy land-based missiles in Eastern Europe that "could pre-emptively destroy the Russian weapons" in response to Moscow's alleged violation of the INF treaty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely the outcome the US government wants to see happen, if in fact they place missiles in Eastern Europe, as though Russia has no right to be upset by this move.

I would almost be willing to bet real money that it is not a question of if these US missiles are placed in Eastern Europe, but when.

Israelis and Saudis Reveal Secret Talks to Thwart Iran

Among those who follow the Middle East closely, it's been an open secret that Israel and Saudi Arabia have a common interest in thwarting Iran. But until Thursday, actual diplomacy between the two was never officially acknowledged. Saudi Arabia still doesn't recognize Israel's right to exist. Israel has yet to accept a Saudi-initiated peace offer to create a Palestinian state.

It was not a typical Washington think-tank event. No questions were taken from the audience. After an introduction, there was a speech in Arabic from Anwar Majed Eshki, a retired Saudi general and ex-adviser to Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador to the U.S. Then Dore Gold, a former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations who is slotted to be the next director general of Israel's foreign ministry, gave a speech in English.

While these men represent countries that have been historic enemies, their message was identical: Iran is trying to take over the Middle East and it must be stopped.

Israel Is A Discredit To America — Paul Craig Roberts

Jeffrey St. Clair, one of the few remaining Western journalists with a moral conscience, describes the latest Israeli horror to which we are all accomplices.

The Israel Lobby tries to prevent reports and criticism of Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians by branding every critic of every policy of the extreme right-wing Israeli government an “anti-semite.” In other words, if you object to Israeli armed forces shooting down Palestinian children in the streets and then bombing the funerals of the kids the Israelis have already murdered, you hate Jews and are an anti-Semite.

The success that the Israel Lobby has enjoyed in imposing this twisted logic on Congress, the White House, the media, the universities and the insouciant American public is astonishing. As a consequence, Americans are no longer answerable to Christian morality but to the evil that the Israel Lobby represents.

Deadliest Saudi air strikes kill over 100 Yemenis

Almost 105 people, most of them civilians, were killed by the Saudi air strikes on many provinces on Wednesday, the deadliest day of bombing in over two-month aggression on Yemen.

Yesterday air raids started in Hajjah province, when the Saudi-led coalition launched many strikes on Abs camp and Bakil al-Meer area, killing at least 40 people, most of them civilians, and wounding 18 others, a security official said.

The second wave of the Saudi air strikes targeted the capital Sana'a, where 54 people were killed in Saudi bombardment on the Special Security Forces (SSF). The death toll is expected to rise, as 325 injuries were reported in the bombing, the official said.

US and Allies have Created a Transnational “Islamist” Terrorist Network, Head of Russia’s Military Intelligence (GRU)

Posted below is the transcript of the speech of Colonel-General Igor Sergun, Head of the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia.

This speech was delivered at the Moscow Security Conference in May 2015.

As a general rule, the GRU never makes a public statement, nor does the person heading it. It is thus interesting that on one of the very few occasions where General Sergun agreed to speak in public, he chose to focus on the risks of the so-called “Islamic” extremism and that in a relatively short presentation, he made four references to the fact that these “Islamic” terrorists are basically a creature of the West.

No foundations or walls or roofs,

but shrines nonetheless.

Holy ground, consecrated

Today, every day, somewhere in the world,

the earth is prepared for my coming.

My hallowed grounds are everywhere.

In valleys and on mountains,

on broad plains and deep in hidden passes,

in deserts, on city streets.

Nameless, unremembered places.

SAUDI ARABIA TO PURCHASE NUCLEAR ARMS FROM PAKISTAN: US OFFICIAL

Saudi Arabia’s nuclear medium-range ballistic DF-3A missiles in a military parade. (File Photo)
Saudi Arabia has made a “strategic decision” to purchase “off-the-shelf” nuclear weapons from Pakistan, a US official says.

"There has been a long-standing agreement in place with the Pakistanis and the House of Saud has now made the strategic decision to move forward," British newspaper Sunday Times quoted a former US defense official as saying in a Sunday report.

"Hundreds of people at [CIA headquarters in] Langley" were trying to discover if Islamabad had already supplied the Persian Gulf nation with nuclear technology or arms, another unnamed US intelligence official said.

Over the past three decades Saudi Arabia has financed considerable amounts of Islamabad's nuclear program and provided it with billions of dollars of subsidized oil.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has had nuclear weapons for years, so Saudi Arabia is acquiring them as a deterrent, and many other Middle Eastern countries may do the same as well.

But this does not augur well for peace in the region, or the world, for that matter.

Hope – versus Neoliberalism – an Ode to Solidarity

The new apparent Hope – is it what my friend Finian Cunningham says – the first ‘eye blinking’ by Washington facing Russia?

We are so thirsty for hope, hope for another, more just, more equitable world, we see hope in the first ‘blinking of an eye’. Hope is good. Hope is the basis for action. And action must be the consequence of hope – hope that not all is lost. Action to break that impasse of neoliberal all-engulfing greed must be simple. We have become strangers to ourselves. We must return to our roots, recognizing where and why we failed to diagnose the beast. Our awakened, re-kindled sense of consciousness may lead us to what we have lost – our inherent sense of solidarity.

Let’s hope together for that to happen – to happen soon, for the suffering is too great to endure much longer. We, the 99.99 % have it in our power to stop this misery and save our planet.

How could Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims be slaughtered in the thousands by the majority Buddhists and surviving people end up in boats and sent back to starve and die at sea rejected by nearby countries including countries like Indonesia with Muslim majorities? How could relatives of Jewish holocaust survivors engage in racism and ethnic cleansing for native Palestinians while relatives of Armenian holocaust survivors lead amazingly rich productive caring lives? How could a very wealthy country like “Saudi Arabia” (the quotes are needed because it is an imposed name for a country stolen by the Saud Family) spend billions to support the US/Israeli agenda of destruction and mayhem in countries like Yemen and Syria?

Is Israel in cahoots with Saudi Arabia?

As of today, upper echelon diplomatic sources think that Israel is in cahoots with Saudi Arabia, which announced this week that King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud will boycott the summit that President Barack Obama has planned for May 14. The United States had invited all of its Middle East Gulf allies to Camp David for a summit also intended to deal with the ramifications of the negotiations with Iran and the emerging nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

Report: Saudi Arabia in talks to purchase Pakistani nuclear weapons

Saudi Arabia has reportedly held talks with Pakistan for the purchase of nuclear weapons amid the ongoing nuclear negotiations between world powers and Iran, according to a US senior official who spoke with The Sunday Times.

Tensions in the region have escalated in light of the framework agreement the United States and the other world powers have made with the Islamic Republic, with Saudi Arabia increasingly concerned with the repercussions of a deal that may see the easing of sanctions leaving Iran more legroom to continue developing weapons of mass destruction.

Saudi Warplanes Bomb Yemen's Capital in Violation of Truce

The Saudi-led air strikes targeted the capital on Sunday. Sounds of explosions were heard across Northern Sana'a.

Saudi Arabia launched its bombing campaign against Yemen on March 26 in an attempt to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh's claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is simple. Yemen's people want to rule Yemen for themselves and not live under a US puppet. The US is using Saudi Arabia as a proxy to hide the fact that they are having to go back into Yemen only a few years after the "successful" intervention that put the US puppet into power.

Not ISIS? Saudi Arabia To Execute & Display Beheaded Body Of Political Activist In Public "Crucifixion"

One of the ways that the U.S. government most clearly expresses its deep dedication to global human rights, democracy and decency across the globe is via its unwavering support for the feudal, inhumane tyrannical monarchy of Saudi Arabia. A monarchy that also increasingly seems to have played a key role in the attacks of September 11, 2001.

The Saudis have received a lot of bad press as of late due to it consistently breaking its own records for beheadings, but sometimes a simple beheading isn’t sufficient. In a punishment known as “crucifixion,” the executed person’s beheaded body is placed on public display for three days. Currently facing this fate are three political activists, including two children.

Saudi Arabia to buy nuclear bombs from Pakistan: report

Saudi Arabia will join the nuclear club by buying “off the shelf” atomic weapons from Pakistan, US officials told a London newspaper.

The Saudis — who financed much of Pakistan’s nuke program — are fearful of international efforts to keep its enemy Iran from acquiring a bomb, the Sunday Times of London reports. The Saudis think the deal, backed by President Obama, will actually accelerate Iran’s nuke push.

UN Official Breaks Down Over Shelled Gaza School

UN official Chris Gunness could not contain his grief while on camera with Al Jazeera Arabic.

The interviewer appears to thank him for appearing, upon which Gunness breaks down and weeps.

Joe Scarborough had harsh words for Israel’s actions in Gaza, saying the country was engaging in “indiscriminate” killing.

“This is asinine,” said the MSNBC host and former Republican congressman. “This continued killing of women and children in a way that appears to be indiscriminate is asinine.”

Is Washington Coming To Its Senses? — Paul Craig Roberts

There is much speculation about US Secretary of State John Kerry’s rush visit to Russia in the wake of Russia’s successful Victory Day celebration on May 9. On May 11, Kerry, who was snubbing Russia on the 9th, was on his way to Russia, and Putin consented to see him on May 12.

As time passes we will find out why Kerry was snubbing Putin on May 9 and 3 days later was criticizing Washington’s puppet regime in Ukraine. For what is known at this time, a possible explanation is that Washington is coming to its senses.

How Israel wants to restart the war in the Levant

Far from admitting defeat, Benjamin Netanyahu is planning to sabotage the agreement between Washington and Teheran which is to be signed the 30th June 2015. In order to do so, he could restart the war in Syria. His idea is to continue the work already accomplished by the Islamic Emirate in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen, by applying the Wright plan and creating an independent pseudo-Kurdistan straddling Iraq and Syria.

Despotic Saudi Regime Lobbies to Chair Human Rights Council

It's one of the world's most repressive states - a blight on humanity, a cancer in a part of the world known for despotic regimes.

Its human rights record is horrific by any standard. Fundamental rights don't exist.

State terror is official policy. Democracy is strictly prohibited. Torture and physical abuse are commonplace. So are public whippings, beheadings and hangings.

PSYCHOPATHS, 9/11 AND EVERLASTING WAR

The lie of 9/11 has provided the pretext for the most terrible wars on the Muslim peoples in defiance of the Nuremberg Protocols and the UN Charter.

Unless that lie is laid bare by truth, 9/11 will be seen as the crucible from which World War Three erupted. There will be no way back from the smoking ruins for those unfortunate enough who survive. The images from Hiroshima and Nagasaki are there to warn us.

I cannot recall when I became certain that 19 Muslims with box cutters were NOT responsible for these events.
