Kuwait Orders Citizens To Leave Lebanon Immediately "As Precaution Against Any Negative Impact That Might Take Place"

The drums of war are beating at a deafening pace: with Saudi Arabia ordering its citizens to immediately leave Lebanon on Thursday, just a few hours later Kuwait joined in.

According to the Kuwait News Agency, citing a foreign ministry statement, Kuwait citizens currently in Lebanon are urged to leave the country immediately.

The statement said the order is due to the "circumstances experienced by Lebanon at the moment, as well as a precautionary measure against any negative impact that might take place."

The ministry also urged citizens not to travel to Lebanon, "wishing at the same time security and stability for the Arab country."

At this point it is safe to assume that war between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia/Israel is just a matter of time.

Saudi Arabia's foreign minister calls for sanctions on Iran for its 'support of terrorism’

"We would like to see sanctions on Iran for its support of terrorism and sanctions on Iran for violating the ballistic missile resolutions of the United Nations," Adel Al-Jubeir, Saudi minister of foreign affairs, told CNBC Thursday

The Kingdom's foreign minister went on to say the most effective way of dealing with Iran would be for the international community to hold Tehran accountable for "fixing" the nuclear agreement, supporting terrorism and for its ballistic missile program

Al-Jubeir described the situation in Lebanon as "unfortunate." He went on to accuse Hezbollah of "hijacking the system" and putting "roadblocks" in front of Hariri at every opportunity

Saudi Arabia later warned its citizens to leave Lebanon immediately

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly would not be at all surprised at seeing Saudi military action against Lebanon commence this weekend.

Dubious Osama bin Laden Documents: A Pretext for a War on Iran

The CIA has given the Long War Journal exclusive access to the supposed Osama bin Laden files taken from his “compound” in Pakistan.

The Long War Journal is a project of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) where its editors are senior fellows. The foundation is a refuge for neocons and a staunch supporters of Israel and its policies. It is also a vocal advocate of confronting Iran.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise the CIA “shared” a carefully selected portion of the documents?—?some 500,000 files?—?with the Long War Journal.

The released documents focus on Iran and its supposed relationship with al-Qaeda.

On November 1, NBC News reported:

The trove also provides new insight into the often adversarial relationship between al Qaeda and Iran?—?the Sunni Muslim terror group and the Shiite republic?—?in the form of a 19-page report described by the Long War Journal as “a senior jihadist’s assessment of the group’s relationship with Iran.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US goverrnment are using its presstitutes and whorespondents to create a climate of demonisation against Iran as a prelude to war against it.

I, for one, can no longer believe anything the US government says through its corporate outlets, and have had it up to HERE with even the possibility of one more American kid dying in a war for resources (with Iran, read: oil, and the sale of oil only in US dollars).

When Karl MArx made the observation that all wars are economic in nature, he was absolutely correct in his assessment.

THE SAUDI PURGE: THE MIDDLE-EAST IS ON THE VERGE OF A NEW WAR

Other high-ranking members of the establishment and the royal family - the two tend to be one and the same in Saudi Arabia - get arrested on charges of corruption, with their bank accounts frozen.

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri unexpectedly resigns after he was summoned to Riyadh by his Saudi-backers.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia accused Iran of conducting acts of “direct military aggression” and accused Lebanon of “declaring war” on Riyadh by allowing Hezbollah “aggression” against the kingdom.

All this happened in a span of just a few days.

With ever-growing security challenges and problems at the regional level, the crisis that took hold of Saudi Arabia does not seem to be slowing down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "attack against corruption", with which these imprisoned princes are accused, was simply a way for the Crown Prince to consolidate his power; seize about 88 billion dollars' worth of assets; and leave him a free hand to finish the job in Yemen according to his will (which will probably mean carpet bombing the country very soon), and tricking the Iranian military into invading Lebanon to defend Hizbullah as an excuse to declare war against Iran.

We have just seen the Saudi decree that all Saudi nationals need to leave Lebanon immediately; they could not be telegraphing any more loudly that something wicked this way comes for Lebanon.

But Prince Salman had better get his geopolitical ducks in somewhat of a row before he attacks Iran.

Russia's military and civilian leadership has pledged, consistently, that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily.

Does Prince Salman really believe, seriously, that he could win a military confrontation with Russia over Iran, even with the US's and Israel's military assistance?!? Were I he, and his advisors, I would rethink that scenario through, very, very carefully before he starts World War III.

Israel lobby lawsuit against San Francisco State University collapses

A federal judge in San Francisco said on Wednesday that he will dismiss a frivolous lawsuit against professor Rabab Abdulhadi and her employer, San Francisco State University.

They were both accused of fostering a hostile environment for Jewish students based on Palestine advocacy and criticism of Israel’s policies.

This is a major victory for US academics and students who are facing a legal assault from pro-Israel groups to punish and censor advocacy for Palestinian rights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I keep looking through the Bill of Rights and there is nothing in there about a right not to have to deal with a "hostile environment."

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS FOR ZION ~~ WORKING 24/7 TO DEFEAT BDS

Two-and-a-half years ago the initials BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) meant little to the wider general public. But then the BDS coalition that was established in 2005 and called for the imposition of economic, academic and cultural boycotts on Israel intensified its struggle especially by exerting heavy pressure on music artists not to perform in Israel.

These new reinvigorated efforts caused the Israeli government to declare the BDS a strategic threat, prompting the Ministry of Strategic Affairs to launch a campaign against the coordinated boycotts.

Survived 9 Death Camps and Lived to Celebrate His 100th Birthday in Israel

It's not everyday someone turns 100 years old - especially a Holocaust survivor - but this week, Elias Feinzilberg celebrated his 100th birthday and his journey is inspiring.

Feinzilberg survived nine concentration camps including Auschwitz-Birkenau. He even survived a two-week death march by eating snow.

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

***
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.

Saudi Arabia’s King to 'stand down and hand power to son after purging' rivals

KING Salman is reportedly preparing to make his son Prince Mohammed bin Salman the ruler of Saudi Arabia in a shock move following a corruption purge, reports claim.

Saudi expert James Dorsey, a senior fellow at Singapore's S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, said: "The most recent crackdown breaks with the tradition of consensus within the ruling family whose secretive inner workings are equivalent to those of the Kremlin at the time of the Soviet Union.

"Prince Mohammed, rather than forging alliances, is extending his iron grip to the ruling family, the military, and the National Guard to counter what appears to be more widespread opposition within the family as well as the military to his reforms and the Yemen war.”

The news comes after the US promised to aid Saudi Arabia in neutralising “Iran’s destabilising influence” and battle extremism in the Middle East, the Pentagon has announced.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These events are moving a breakneck speed.

The Saudi-led, US-government enabled genocide in Yemen will continue unabated now, and will soon spread into both Lebanon, and Iran.

SAUDIS, IRAN ON PATH TO 'VERY, VERY BLOODY' WAR

While the world tries to interpret Saudi Arabia’s moves to clamp down on corruption and watches the kingdom accuse Iran of an “act of war,” a former Reagan administration Pentagon official says Saudi Arabia is gearing up for the very real possibility of a “very, very bloody” war with Iran.

Within the past several days, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is next in line to the Saudi throne, has ordered the arrests of many government officials, including 11 princes, on allegations of corruption. More recently, the crown prince accused Iran of an “act of war” after Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen launched an Iranian missile toward the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

The Houthis admit firing the missile, and Saudi investigators say the fragments prove the missile is from Iran. Furthermore, the Saudi-friendly prime minister of Lebanon abruptly resigned, and many other elements of the Lebanese government are loyal to the Shiite regime in Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, the fragment was adjudged by both Saudi and Yemeni military officials to be Yemeni-manufactured, and Yemeni fired; it was absolutely NOT Iranian in origin.

Saudi Arabia intercepts ballistic missile over capital

The article goes on to say that the missile was Yemen's Defense Ministry said the missile attack "shook the Saudi capital" and the operation was successful. The attack was conducted using a Yemeni-made, long-range missile called the Burqan 2H, it said.

So if, in fact, it was a Yemeni made and launched missile, how could it, please, have been Iranian in origin?!? What is the Saudi "proof" that this is the truth?!?

No: this is an absolute lie.

And the reason for this lie is that this article is setting forth a narrative, one of "Good little Saudi Arabia (with a known "human rights record" just to the right of that of Attila the Hun) getting "beat up" by a nasty, horrible Iran, and therefore, the US has to get dragged into this fight on the side of Saudi Arabia, cheerled by Israel which, like Saudi Arabia, labels Iran as its "existential threat" in the region.

And also, like Saudi Arabia, Israel is expecting that regime change in Tehran will primarily be purchased at the costs of only American blood, and American money.

I frankly do not want to see one more American kid killed or maimed for life in a war over resources in the Middle East, yet I see this war coming, and frightully soon.

Mike and I have been speculating about precisely when such a war would start. The Israeli military and its coalition (which probably includes Saudi Arabia, but un-named for geopolitical reasopns) are doing a massive military exercise, over the period of the next two weeks.

Israel begins largest military drill as Saudis consider Missle Strike by Iran as an Act of War

the only, slightly, minor problem with this headline is that it wasn't the Iranian military which launched this missile; it was the Yemeni Houthis who did this.

People, we are being "groomed" for a war against Iran, taking Saudi Arabia's and Israel's side in it, there is no mistake about it; Iran is getting villified, and Saudi Arabia is getting held up high as a shining example of "moderate Muslim behaviour".

The facts on the ground in Yemen speak a very different and horrific narrative, with the US government colluding in Saudi war crimes, such as the assassination of Yemeni children; deaths from complications of malnutrition in Yemeni children, courtesy of the duel US-Saudi blockading of Yemeni harbors; and now, a massive outbreak of cholera, most probably weaponised.

IF the US government does go to war against Iran, to mollify Saudi Arabia and Israel, we may very well looking at miilitary confrontation with Russia as well, as historically, their political and miilitary leaders have vowed to protect it, should it become militarily threatened.

And lastly, should the US government go to war against Iran, it will absolutely not be on the right side of either history, nor any kind of true regional "justice".

Korean F-16s Upgraded To Carry Israeli Weapon

The Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) has performed numerous live drops of the Rafael Spice 2,000-pound guided glide bomb this year, suggesting that the weapon is fully certified on its F-16 fleet. The Israeli company does not discuss customers, but reports indicate that Seoul signed a deal with Rafael in late 2015, with deliveries due in the second half of 2016.

The Balfour Declaration - One Hundred Years of (Goyim) Solitude

Let’s first examine the document. Most noticeably the so-called ‘declaration’ is not printed on official British government letterhead. It is not signed by the British cabinet either. It is, instead, a letter from a sleazy British politician (Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour) to a very rich Jew (Lord Walter Rothschild). As such, the Balfour ‘declaration’ is actually a statement with somewhat limited significance. What it does is “declare[s] sympathy with Zionist aspirations.”

US Demands UN Action Against Iran Over Yemen Missile

Though Saudi Arabia accused Iran (and Lebanon for that matter) of being behind a Yemen missile strike over the weekend, they offered no evidence that this was the case. Indeed, while they claimed Iran provided the missile, they also confirmed the missile was a Burqan 2H, which is a Yemen-made design, and which Yemen’s Defense Ministry confirmed firing themselves.

Still, one allegation from the Saudis was enough for US Ambassador Nikki Haley to come to the UN Tuesday to demand international action against Iran, claiming the missile “may be of Iranian origin” and that would be a violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

Saudi Arabia has been frustrated by how poorly the war in Yemen is going, and has been keen to pick fights with Iran. The Trump Administration has very much been supportive of that idea, and subsequently is backing the Saudi allegations against Iran, even though they are transparently untrue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ambassador Haley, a word, please: the "big lie" went out with the whoopie cushion and the dribble glass, and this seems to be understood by every UN member country's Ambassador....except for yourself, the Ambassador from Saudi Arabia, and the Ambassador from Israel.

Unfortuntely, it appears that you are violently allergic to the truth, and in a massive depth of geopolitical denial which is going to ultimately get the US sleepwalking into a war against Iran, using Saudi Arabia, as a proxy, which will most likely ultimately involve Russia on Iran's side.

And although Saudi Arabia and Israel's political leadership have been cheerleading for a war against Iran, regime change in Tehran is most apt to be borne at the costs primarily of American blood, and American money.

Shakeup In Saudi Arabia, Hariri Resignation, And Threats Of War Spell Possible Chaos In Middle East

By Brandon Turbeville

Over the past few days, a series of events have occurred which rocked the geopolitical scene and have affected a number of countries specifically such as Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Yemen, and Iran. Naturally, the events that taking place in these locations are immensely important for the rest of the world and, for that reason, other regional and international players are being drawn into the drama as well.

While it would be foolish to pretend to know all the details taking place behind the scenes, we are still able to analyze current events in order to attempt to gain a greater understanding of where the situation is heading and thus have a better understanding of how to respond to them. The article that follows is simply an attempt to point to the most logical conclusion regarding these events...

WATCH MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ATTEMPT TO EXPLAIN WHY THEY WON’T VOTE ON WAR IN YEMEN

THE BRUTAL WAR in Yemen has intensified in recent days, with the Saudi-led coalition backed by the United States increasing its bombing campaign and blockade of ports. Meanwhile, the architect of the war, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has launched a widespread purge of the government, while using a missile launched from Yemen as a pretext to threaten war with Iran.

Yet American lawmakers are still avoiding a vote on authorizing U.S. involvement in the conflict.

Saudi Arabia relies heavily on the U.S. military for intelligence sharing, refueling flights for coalition warplanes, and the transfer of American-made cluster bombs, rockets, and other munitions used against targets in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is one factor that Mr. Fang misses in this article and video, and the other reason why Congressional representatives may be "punting" on this; they may be making a "killing", literally and figuratively, from their investments in the military/industrial complex which have sold Saudi Arabia billions of dollars worth of weapons since the war began in 2015.

Congressional representatives are not bound by American law to put their financial estates into a blind trust, when they assume office, as is the President, so can make beaucoup bucks through tips and inside trading.

Israel in Contact With Russia on Syria as 'Moscow's Role in Expanding' - Analyst

Commenting on a recent statement by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Tel Aviv would not tolerate Tehran’s military presence in Syria, Kedmi emphasized that the country wants neither Iran nor pro-Iranian Shiite groups’ present on Syria’s soil. At the same time, according to the analyst, this rhetoric also serves the domestic agenda.

"The goal is to find a threat to distract public attention from domestic issues and from the complicated situation Netanyahu and his supporters have found themselves in. But Tel Aviv really doesn’t want Iranian military bases in Syria. But I think there is a little chance that it is possible despite Tehran’s intention to do so," Kedmi told Sputnik Serbia.

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

As is already well-known, the Saudi and Israeli common cause against perceived Iranian influence and expansion in places like Syria, Lebanon and Iraq of late has led the historic bitter enemies down a pragmatic path of unspoken cooperation as both seem to have placed the break up of the so-called “Shia crescent” as their primary policy goal in the region. For Israel, Hezbollah has long been its greatest foe, which Israeli leaders see as an extension of Iran’s territorial presence right up against the Jewish state’s northern border.

Israeli kindergarten raid terrifies Palestinian kids

Occupied East Jerusalem - Teachers and parents have decried a raid on a school by Israeli forces that resulted in the arrests of the school's deputy principal and three teachers. Israeli police entered the Zahwa al-Quds kindergarten and primary school in the occupied East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Beit Hanina on Monday and made the arrests because staff refused to follow Israel's education standard, according to school staff. "Israel is attempting to force our school to adopt the Israeli education curriculum," Ziad al-Shamali, head of the school's parent committee, told Al Jazeera on Tuesday. "We are refusing this. So they decided to raid our school and scare our children."

Is Saudi Arabia Engaging Iran in a New Regional Conflict?

While Hariri stepped down in a televised address from Saudi Arabia and blamed Hezbollah and Iran for meddling in the country’s internal affairs, this might only be a prelude to a new Hezbollah-Israel war—something that might enable the Saudis to force Iran to shift its focus away from Iraq and Syria.

This is how things might be forced to turn ugly in Lebanon. The Saudis, by pulling Hariri out of his office, seem to be hoping to ensure that Hezbollah gets stuck with the blame and responsibility for Lebanon’s challenges, from caring for Syrian refugees to wiping out Al Qaida and ISIS affiliates. This will probably require Hezbollah to assume more control in Lebanon—something that Israel is most likely to sees as a red-line. A stronger Hezbollah in Lebanon means a stronger Iranian presence close to Israel, forcing Israel in a conflict with them.

Saudi Arabia Says Lebanon, Iran Declare War

Over the weekend, Saudi Arabia intercepted a ballistic missile fired by north Yemeni forces at their capital city. The missile was identified as a Burqan 2H, a Yemeni design, and Yemen’s Defense Ministry confirmed firing it.

Rather than just the latest retaliation in Saudi Arabia’s two and a half year war in Yemen, however, Saudi officials seem to be looking to turn the incident into the start of a region-wide war, saying it amounted to a declaration of war against them by both Lebanon and Iran.

This claim centers on Saudi claims, which appear to have started Monday but weren’t mentioned over the weekend when the interception happened, that the missile was an “Iranian” missile, fired at the Saudi capital by Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement, which is part of the Lebanese government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is insane; this charge has been proven absolutely wrong by its identification by Saudi and Yemeni military as a Burqan 2H, of Yemeni manufacturing, and Yemeni design.

This is not an Iranian designed or manufactured missile.

But we have a two week huge military exercise by Israeli and "coalition" forces,in one of the most dense, integrative natures ever conducted by the Israeli military; the purge of Saudi royalty and businessmen who didn't like where Prince Salman was going; and the resignation of the Prime Minister of Lebanon, which is going to leave that country in great geopolitical turmoil.

And I hope President Trump understands that even though Prince Salman and Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu have been "cheerleading" for regime change in Tehran, it will primarily be bought, if Trump is foolish enough to sign on to this, at the costs of American blood and American money.

Think about it, Mr. President, please, before you sign off on this; and please remember that Russian military and political personnel have long pledged to come to Iran's aid militarily, should it be attacked.

And on top of this, comes this very sad statement about how President Trump is characterizing this purge:

Trump Endorses Saudi Crackdown to "neutralize" Iran.

DEFEATED ELSEWHERE, SAUDI TYRANT DECLARES WAR ON LEBANON

The Saudi clown prince Mohammed bin Salman is purging all potential internal resistance and solidifies his dictatorial position. (The move includes a huge money grab. All assets of those accused of corruption are confiscated by the state which, in Saudi Arabia, is the tyrant himself.) The internal consolidation of power is the prelude for a larger external venture.

At the same time as the internal purges proceed, MbS implements an extremely aggressive foreign policy agenda targeted at Iran and its allies. Having been defeated in Iraq and Syria and at stalemate in Qatar and Yemen the Saudi ruler decided to try his luck in Lebanon. The Saudi declares war on Lebanon and will put enormous economic and political pressure on it. But all of that will be to no avail. The war will only cause Lebanon to move deeper into the "resistance" camp and join its forces with Syria, Iran and Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, please; don't panic here.

But do plan.

The situations in both the Middle East and Asia are getting about as serious as is a heart attack, and you need to make contingency plans in order to keep your family as safe as possible.

If you do not already have resources in place for long term storable food and water, and any medication you and the family needs, get them now. If the cell system goes down, you will need long-range, walkie-talkies. Start working with them now, and make sure you are comfortable, so that if you need to use them, you can.

IF you and the family get separated, have a plan to get back together. Have a bugout kit, which gets reviewed episodically, to make sure your equipment, or food, has not expired. Non-leaking batteries are a must on the equipment side.

If you have kids in school, find out their policy regarding taking them out of school before the end of the school day, if you see that you are looking at some kind of emergency coming forward.

IT is always better to have and not need, rather than need and not have...

"EXPLOSIVE" LEAKED SECRET ISRAELI CABLE CONFIRMS ISRAELI-SAUDI COORDINATION TO PROVOKE WAR

Early this morning, Israeli Channel 10 news published a leaked diplomatic cable which had been sent to all Israeli ambassadors throughout the world concerning the chaotic events that unfolded over the weekend in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, which began with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri's unexpected resignation after he was summoned to Riyadh by his Saudi-backers, and led to the Saudis announcing that Lebanon had "declared war" against the kingdom.

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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to shake my head and ask: how are Saudi Arabia and Israel defining "regional subversion"?!?!? Is there anything concrete at all to this?!?

And a quick question; do both Netanyahu and Prince Salman understand, even remotely, that such an attack against Iran will most probably bring Russia into the war on Iran's side, as its military and civilian leadership has long promised to come to Iran's aid if attacked militarily?!?

War with Russia over Iran?!? Gentlemen, please think about it...long and hard.

And to President Trump, a word, please; the Saudis and Israelis are cheerleading for regime change in Tehran, but primarily at the costs of American blood and American money.

Mr. President, those Americans who put you into the White House last November, simply will not tolerate yet another war, this time for the conquest of Iran's oil, when all the previous military misadventures over the last 16 years in places like Niger; Libya; Aftghanistan; Iraq; and Somalia have gone so miserably badly for the American military.

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.

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

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'.

"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.

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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Forget the 'slippery slope' — Israel already is an apartheid state

It's time to agree with a long list of Israeli political leaders, academics and public figures on both the political left and right, including three former prime ministers, a winner of the Israel prize, two former heads of the Israeli internal security service Shin Bet, and one of the country's principal newspapers, all of whom have warned that the Jewish state is becoming, or already is, an apartheid state.

Another war between Lebanon and Syria

Recently, Israel attacked Syrian anti-aircraft facilities, the first time Israeli jets had been targeted by Syria since its civil war began. Within days after the first attack, Israel struck again reacting to threats in the Golan Heights. PM Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel will continue to respond forcefully to any attacks. Iran’s military chief, during a recent visit to Syria, said it was unacceptable to allow Israel to threaten Syrian assets.
Note: Please understand Israel is angry that Syria is attacking Israeli jets as they bomb Syria!!! Logic from the chosen ones.

Rejoice! Netanyahu Is Finished

This Monday the Knesset reassembled for its winter session after a long (and blessed) vacation. On such occasions, the president of the state and the prime minister are invited to speak. The speeches are supposed to be festive, full of pious platitudes. In one ear and out the other.

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.

Oct 24 09:02

Are Our Mideast Wars Forever?

As their U.S. allies watched, the Kurdish peshmerga fighters were run out of Kirkuk and all the territory they had captured fighting ISIS alongside the Americans. The Iraqi army that ran them out was trained and armed by the United States.

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.
