If Golan Talks Fail,We’ll Turn To Resistance

Syrian President Bashar Assad warned on Monday that if the Golan Heights are not returned peacefully – Syria will turn to resistance. Speaking at an economic forum of the Organization of Islamic Conference in Istanbul, Assad said, “The failure of negotiations towards the full restoration of rights automatically means resistance is the alternative solution.”

According to Assad, “Resisting the occupation is a national duty. It is our legitimate and moral obligation to support it, and it is an honor that we take pride in. This does not contradict the constant desire to achieve a just and inclusive peace on the basis of the restoration of the occupied lands, starting with the occupied Syrian Golan.”

The Murder of JFK: Bush Family Connection

Strange coincidences
Prescott Bush, banker to the Nazis and grandfather of George W. Bush, sponsored the rise of an obscure California right-wing politician who socialized extensively with Nazi sympathizers: Richard M. Nixon.

Richard Nixon hired a "gofer" to assist him with his campaigning and other matters: Mob-connected Jack Ruby who later moved to Dallas.

Just days after the Kennedy assassination, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover pointedly mentioned "Mr. George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency" in a memo discussing the reaction of right-wing Cubans to the assassination. Two of the boats used in the infamous Bay of Pigs invasion were coincidentally named "Barbara" (the name of Bush's wife) and "Zapata" the name of his oil company.

Bailout overseer Elizabeth Warren: banks recklessly gamble knowing US taxpayers will pay losses

Elizabeth Warren is a Harvard law professor specializing in contract, bankruptcy, and commercial law. She is also chair of the Congressional oversight committee for the so-called "bailout." In the following 6-minute interview, Warren sharply criticizes the political “leadership” of both parties for allowing the big banks to gamble and profit, then be bailed-out when their gambling crashes. She states that the banks were given our money while we were left on our own. She sites the most recent economic data of unemployment officially reported at over 10%, with the more realistic closer to twice that amount (and here).

With AE911Truth.org at the AIA Richmond Convention

Another elderly gentleman, an architect from Williamsburg came by to express how stunned he was that the towers fell in the manner they did. But he said, anything can happen in those circumstances, considering the impacts, that no one can predict or possibly explain. I agreed with his general conjecture, to a point. I said there's a lot we would like to explain and some that we can't. I could tell that he had had some doubts but had convinced himself by means of the 'chaos' theory, that all was well. That is, certain things, like impacts of this nature, can foment unpredictable results. I was trying to point out the many characteristics similar to controlled demolition (our talking points). He looked behind me and said, "now that's controlled demolition." He was referring to the video of wtc7 collapsing alongside an actual demolition that we had running in back. I said, we think so, that's world-trade 7. He was taken aback. He said, "they took that one down", I replied, "no planes hit that one." As it dawned on him what he was looking at, why we paired it with the demolition demo and yet another inconsistency that seemed to have been withheld from him in this incredulous tale, his jaw dropped. He turned without saying another word and walked away. Was he unprepared to face the truth?

20 October, 2008

Sadly, the time for change has already come and gone. This is just another election where the American citizen is presented with “the lesser of two evils” and nothing in the past four years since we allowed George W. Bush to steal another election with the gang rape of the Ohio voters. There are so many people in this country that understood what happened in 2000 and 2004 during those “stolen elections”, you would tend to believe that many of us would have already changed the system.

A Jewish rabbi has issued a book giving Jews permission to murder non-Jews, including babies and children, who may pose an actual or potential threat to Jews or Israel. “It is permissible to kill the Righteous among non-Jews even if they are not responsible for the threatening situation,” Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, who heads the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva in the Yitzhar settlement in the occupied West Bank, wrote in his book “The King’s Torah.”

Intelligence Officials Deny Sitting on Information About Fort Hood Shooter

U.S. intelligence officials on Monday denied that the intelligence community "sat" on valuable information about the alleged Fort Hood shooter before last week's massacre, after one lawmaker questioned whether agencies like the CIA could have done more to warn military and government officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In their haste to sell Major Hasan as the vilest villain since Osama Bin Laden, the intelligence boys have dug themselves int a real hole.

Their entire smear campaign against Major Hasan is that the intelligence agencies were watching him, suspicious of him, concerned, aware that he was posting some questionable posts on the net, tried to connect with Al Qaeda, and most damning of all, was once inside the same building as one of the 9-11 suspects, albeit not at the same time.

Of course, the police who have Major Hasan's laptop have reported there is nothing suspicious on it at all, and the reports that he frequented a strip club cast doubt on his newly-crafted image of fanatical Muslim jihadist.

But here is the problem. We, the American people, have been told that we must accept the warrantless spying on our lives because it will make us safer. We are told that the government's reading of our emails, snooping through our computers, listening to our phone calls, are all necessary to keep us safe.

Yet clearly, it did not work. Even in the case of Major Hasan, who we are told was spotted acting in a suspicious manner 6 months ago, the entire US Government security apparatus was unable to intervene and protect the soldiers at Fort Hood (setting aside the question of why, only mere months after John Russell's shooting rampage on that same base, they were not able to protect themselves).

Of course, my information is that there was a firefight when an argument over refusing to deploy crossed over into a minor mutiny. Since the US Government cannot allow the rest of the military to know there was a revolt in the rank and file, there was a quick decision made to blame the dead Muslim, only it turns out he wasn't dead, and in typical shoot-from-the-hip fashion the propaganda stories are not being well thought out to see what the final implications of the claims really are.

U.S. rail traffic still down sharply: industry group

U.S. rail traffic remains sharply down from a year ago, a trade group said, but shipments in some industries have shown improvement.

Carloadings on major U.S. railroads in the week ended October 31 dipped 13.7 percent from a year ago, the Association of American Railroads said in its weekly report.

But at 275,439 carloads, traffic was down 18.2 percent from the same week in 2007 -- before the recession hit.

Apartment lending is down 40 percent.

Who Will Be Sent to Afghanistan?

In a grim Nov. 3 Wall Street Journal piece (buried inside the paper), Yochi Dreazen reported record suicide rates for a stressed-out U.S. Army. Sixteen soldiers killed themselves in October alone, 134 so far this year, essentially ensuring that last year’s “record” of 140 suicides will be broken. This represents a startling 37 percent jump in suicides since 2006 and, for the first time, puts the suicide rate in the Army above that of the general U.S. population.

However, she would not say what Maj Hasan had been talking to medical staff about, nor what treatment he was receiving.
A spokesman at the hospital, Dewey Mitchell, told the Associated Press news agency Maj Hasan had been able to speak since Saturday, when he was taken off a ventilator.

Yersinia pestis

Human Y. pestis infection takes three main forms: pneumonic, septicemic, and the notorious bubonic plagues.[1] All three forms have been responsible for high mortality rates in epidemics throughout human history, including the Black Death (a bubonic plague) that accounted for the death of at least one-third of the European population in 1347 to 1353.
In September 2009 the death of a molecular genetics professor at the University of Chicago was linked to his work on a weakened strain of Y. pestis.[2].
Y. pestis has gained attention as a possible biological warfare agent and the CDC has classified it as a category A pathogen requiring preparation for a possible terrorist attack.

Israel:A Return To The Middle Ages

When you read a news story saying that “the United Nations called on Israel to stop demolishing Palestinian homes and put an end to the policy of forced evictions in East Jerusalem, warning that there are 60,000 Palestinians threatened of becoming homeless,” you cannot but wonder about the role of the international organization today and about the goal for which it was created on the eve of the victory of the forces of freedom against Nazism and Fascism and whether it is the same organization authorized by history and the world’s peoples to guarantee the right to ‘self determination’?
Is it the same organization charged with “putting an end to colonialism”?

Rabbi’s Book:Israelis Can Kill Children, Women & Elders

The Goldstone report, which accuses Israel of committing war crimes against civilians in Gaza, was not folded yet till a book for one of the Israeli rabbis was issued permitting the killing of children, women, the elderly and the innocent of non-Jews in the necessities of war.

The book also accuses all nations of non-Jews of shedding the blood of Israelis and thus dealing with them on the basis of this opinion, which allows the killing of their children, women and their elders.

Shapira, head of the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva, also said in “The King’s Torah” that it is permissible to kill children if they pose a threat.

Lew Rockwell: Why Isn’t the H1N1 Pandemic Flu Being Investigated as a Designed Bioweapon?

Certainly, this is not out of the question technologically. It is now entirely possible for scientists to artificially re-create an infectious agent from scratch. Researchers have demonstrated that a polio virus can be reduced to a chemical, C332,652H492,388N98,245O131,196-P7501S2340, and assembled by following its written genetic code. (Viruses are not live organisms, they are sequences of genes that must rely upon entry into a host cell nucleus to utilize the cell’s genetic mechanisms for reproduction.) When a synthetically-created polio virus was introduced into the spinal cords of mice it created the same paralysis seen in polio.

Israeli envoy tells U.S. Jews: Push for Iran sanctions

Israel's Ambassador to the United States on Sunday told American Jewish groups that they must press for sanctions on Iran, and condemned the findings of a United Nations commission on the Gaza conflict between Israel and Hamas, which he said helped to "cast widespread doubts about Israel's legitimacy."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, what the Goldstone report really casts doubt on is Israel's permanent state of victimhood, behind which it hides its endless war crimes.

The fact is that Israel has lost its teflon coating, despite the recent flood of swastika hoaxes. Israel is no longer seen as justified in everything it does because of its unique status as world's most victim state. That status has shifted to Palestine. Israel is now correctly seen as a blood-stained aggressor not defending its own lands but stealing those of other people.

We ask our fellow citizens in the matrix: Do you want the blue pill, or do you want the red pill? So far, most Americans have unfortunately opted for the blue pill.

The Times also reported that Jack Murtha, Chair of the Defense Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee, indicated on October 30 that he expects the supplemental spending bill for 2010 to be in the range of $40 billion. The final dollar amount won't be known until the White House submits its "emergency" supplemental spending request to Congress, most likely around February 2.

AP IMPACT: Framed for child porn — by a PC virus

An Associated Press investigation found cases in which innocent people have been branded as pedophiles after their co-workers or loved ones stumbled upon child porn placed on a PC through a virus. It can cost victims hundreds of thousands of dollars to prove their innocence.

Their situations are complicated by the fact that actual pedophiles often blame viruses — a defense rightfully viewed with skepticism by law enforcement.

"It's an example of the old `dog ate my homework' excuse," says Phil Malone, director of the Cyberlaw Clinic at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society. "The problem is, sometimes the dog does eat your homework."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Planting child porn on a victim's computer has become a favorite trick of political operatives to destroy opponents.

One pro-Israel hacker up in Canada was breaking into the computers of Israel critics and planting child porn on them, then reporting them anonymously, but last I heard this backfired and the hacker got arrested, and the Canadians take child porn VERY seriously!

WHO Continues To Deceive: Assumes That Ukraine Plague Is H1N1 Swine Flu

The World Health Organization (WHO) is continuing to deceive the world by stating sweeping assumptions about the Ukraine pandemic. Despite huge differences in transmission and deaths rates, the agency stated Tuesday that it was valid to assume that most of the cases of influenza reportedly combing through the Ukraine were caused by the pandemic A(H1N1) virus.

There is very little left to be respected of the WHO. After months of using junk science and contradictions to conceal actual swine flu cases, they are now launching phase two of their deceptive operation: Convince the world that a more lethal strain of flu is still the same H1N1 virus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I mentioned previously, WHO has a vested interest in the Ukraine "Califonria" flu being H1N1. WHO has rested its reputation as a global health authority on scaring us all into buying vaccines for H1N1. If the California Flu turns out to be something new, WHO has missed the call, warned us about the wrong flu, and spent billions of dollars preparing us all for the wrong illness.

The global pandemic was the second of three pillars on which the new global government was to be built. With global warming already in doubt by the world's population, emphasis had shifted to the global pandemic to sell a global authority. If the flu in Ukraine turns out to be something other than H1N1, then the entire push for global government rests on the single pillar of a global financial crisis, and since the people of the world see bankers and government as the problem, a bigger bank and a bigger government is not seen as a solution.

Together with Israel's defiance of the United Nations, the global government agenda is in real trouble.

When the Dollar Rallies, the Market Will Crash

Interest rates. The Fed does not need slinky women in plunging necklines to peddle money. All it needs is low interest rates. When rates are pushed lower than the rate of inflation, the Fed provides a subsidy for borrowing. This is not as hard to grasp as it sounds. If I offered to give you $1.00 for very 90 cents you gave me in return, you would buy as many dollars from me as you could. The Fed operates the same way. It generates market activity by creating incentives for borrowing. Borrowing leads to speculation, and speculation leads to steadily rising asset prices. This is how the game is played. The Fed is not an unbiased observer of free market activity. The Fed drives the market. It fuels speculation and controls behavior by fixing interest rates.

Officials: U.S. Aware of Hasan Efforts to Contact al Qaeda

If you believe the official story (I don't) and trust the US government (you shouldn't) then the spooks "knew" Hasan had terror sympathies and still could not prevent him from carrying out a mass shooting with a high-powered rifle, no wait, he used two handguns, no wait, he was armed with a Belgian semi-automatic pistol, no wait, he used a FN Five-Seven, ummm, make that a light-saber.

Mullen: ‘Nuclear Iran’ an Existential Threat to Israel

Speaking today at the National Press Club, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Michael Mullen declared that “it’s very clear to me that a nuclear weapon in Iran is an existential threat to Israel.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Isn't that Israel's problem? And aren't Israel's nuclear weapons existential threats to Lebanon, Syria, Iran, etc. etc. etc.?

Iran hasn't invaded anyone for 200 years. Israel attacks someone every 6-8 months just to prove their manhood.

And finally, there is no rule that says nations should be kept from extinction. The Hittites are gone. Rome is gone. The Ottoman Empire is gone. The USSR is gone. So is Nazi Germany. Every nation has a life cycle, and it may simply be that Israel (and the US) are nearing the natural end of their lifespans.

Turkey PM: Israel war crimes worse than Sudan

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday accused Israel of committing greater crimes against Palestinians during its war in the Gaza Strip than those for which Sudanese leader Omar al-Bashir had been indicted.

Erdogan said he would rather confront Bashir, indicted for orchestrating crimes against humanity in Darfur, than discuss state killings of civilians with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Turkish prime minister also said that he did not believe that Bashir was guilty of the crimes for which he was indicted.

"I cannot discuss this with Netanyahu but I can easily discuss such issues with Omar al-Bashir. I can say to his face: What you are doing is wrong," Erdogan said.

Abbas tells Palestinians: Israel doesn't want peace

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told supporters in the West Bank town of Bethlehem on Sunday that they must remain committed to peace, despite what he called Israel's failure to promote a viable solution.

Israel was not fulfilling the preconditions necessary for seeing a peace deal, said Abbas, emphasizing that as long as settlement activity continued, peace could not be reached.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shelling Gaza at random doesn't help either.

Pentagon Pouring Your Money Into Afghanistan: Are They Preparing for a Very Long War?

In recent weeks, President Obama has been contemplating the future of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan. He has also been touting the effects of his policies at home, reporting that this year's Recovery Act not only saved jobs, but also was "the largest investment in infrastructure since [President Dwight] Eisenhower built the Interstate Highway System in the 1950s." At the same time, another much less publicized U.S.-taxpayer-funded infrastructure boom has been underway. This one in Afghanistan.

Oh 4 Pete's sake > Climate change belief given same legal status as religion

Climate change belief given same legal status as religion
An executive has won the right to sue his employer on the basis that he was unfairly dismissed for his green views after a judge ruled that environmentalism had the same weight in law as religious and philosophical beliefs.
In a landmark ruling, Mr Justice Michael Burton said that "a belief in man-made climate change ... is capable, if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purpose of the 2003 Religion and Belief Regulations".
The ruling could open the door for employees to sue their companies for failing to account for their green lifestyles, such as providing recycling facilities or offering low-carbon travel.

LOS ANGELES -- Warnings that the H1N1 Swine Flu virus would mutate into a much more deadly strain have come true according to President Victor Yuschenko. The Ukrainian politician, vying for re-election, declared martial law last week in a move that reflects gross negligence and criminal malfeasance, according to intelligence sources provided by American public health expert, Dr. Leonard Horowitz.

Shifting the Burden From Main Street to Wall Street: Why We Need a "Tobin Tax"

* The Bank for International Settlements estimates that in 2008, annual trading in over-the-counter derivatives amounted to $743 trillion globally - more than ten times the gross domestic product of all the nations of the world combined.
* Just five super-rich Wall Street banks control 97% of the U.S. derivatives market: JPMorgan Chase & Co., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co.
* Wall Street traders compete to design computer programs that can move many trades in microseconds, allowing them to beat ordinary investors to the "buy" button and to manipulate markets for private gain.
* Goldman Sachs was reported in September to be sitting on a cool $167 billion in cash. Meanwhile, a September survey of state finances found that state governments faced a collective budget shortfall for fiscal 2010 of $168 billion - nearly the same amount.
* In 2008, Goldman Sachs paid a paltry 1% in income taxes - less than clerks at WalMart.

Nuclear sites given the go-ahead amid warnings of energy shortage

A new generation of nuclear power stations will today be approved by ministers, who insist they are a necessary source of energy to combat global warming.

Ed Miliband, the Energy and Climate Change Secretary, is expected to give the green light to most of the 11 potential sites unveiled earlier this year - and could even back all of them.

The Government will also introduce planning laws to make it quicker and easier for future sites to get the go-ahead.

Note that nuclear power costs four times as much as power derived from gas or coal.

Now safety police want to check all our smoke alarms

Family homes could be invaded by health and safety inspectors checking that parents are keeping their children safe.

Whitehall is recommending that inspectors make sure parents have fitted smoke alarms, stair gates, locks on medicine cupboards, windows and ovens, and temperature controls to stop bath water getting too hot.

The proposed scheme was condemned by critics yesterday as a nightmarish intrusion into family life.

Nanoparticles could damage DNA at a distance, study suggests

Nanoparticles of metal can damage the DNA inside cells even if there is no direct contact between them, scientists have found. The discovery provides an insight into how the particles might exert their influence inside the body and points to possible new ways to deliver medical treatments.

The preliminary work also raises questions about the safety of nanoparticles – which are a thousand times smaller than the width of a human hair and used in everything from sunscreens to electronics – though the researchers point out that the doses they used in their study were higher than anything a person might come into contact with.

Sam Donaldson: Lets Get Rid Of The Fed Now Before They Do Further Damage

The Federal Reserve Transparency Act (H.R. 1207), Congressman Ron Pauls landmark bill to audit the Federal Reserve, has been gutted in a House subcommittee as it works its way toward a vote in the full House. The bill, which has garnered an astonishing 308 cosponsors from both parties, has attracted the scalpel of North Carolina Democrat Mel Watt (whose district happens to include Charlotte, the home of Bank of America, Americas largest commercial bank). According to Congressman Paul, whose Campaign for Liberty posted a video on the bill last weekend, Watt has cut out just about everything in prepping the bill for a full committee vote

My book, The CIA Doctors,[i] is based on 15,000 pages of documents I received from the CIA through the Freedom of Information Act and dozens of papers published in medical journals. These papers report the results of research funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Department of the Army, the Office of Naval Research and the CIA. From 1950 to 1972, the CIA funded TOP SECRET research at many leading universities including Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Johns Hopkins and Stanford. There was a series of CIA mind control programs including BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOKE, MKULTRA, MKSEARCH and MKNAOMI.

Antidepressants Cause Suicide, Violence in Soldiers

Antidepressants Cause Suicide
and Violence in Soldiers
Here are the starting facts: Death by suicide is at record levels in the armed services. Simultaneously the use of antidepressant drugs is also at record levels, including brand names like Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa and Lexapro....
Some observed that the drugs often change the personality of the soldiers, making them irritable, edgy, and angry. They fear these drugs many unleash impulsive violence. Meanwhile, because many soldiers don't want to take psychiatric medications, they avoid seeking any kind of help.

When the Dollar Rallies, the Market Will Crash

Interest rates. The Fed does not need slinky women in plunging necklines to peddle money. All it needs is low interest rates. When rates are pushed lower than the rate of inflation, the Fed provides a subsidy for borrowing. This is not as hard to grasp as it sounds. If I offered to give you $1.00 for very 90 cents you gave me in return, you would buy as many dollars from me as you could. The Fed operates the same way. It generates market activity by creating incentives for borrowing. Borrowing leads to speculation, and speculation leads to steadily rising asset prices. This is how the game is played. The Fed is not an unbiased observer of free market activity. The Fed drives the market. It fuels speculation and controls behavior by fixing interest rates.

Fort Hood's Killer Shrink: Was He One of the Army Docs Pressured to Misdiagnose PTSD in Soldiers?

Perhaps we'll learn as details unfold that Hasan — himself a suicide killer — was one of the Army's psychiatrists and psychologists who were pressured during the first five years of the Iraq War to not diagnose screwed-up soldiers as suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Instead, the Army's doctors were diagnosing soldiers as supposedly having "personality disorder," a pre-existing condition for which they wouldn't qualify for treatment. The military had a financial motive — keep healthcare costs down — in addition to the motive of covering up the huge PTSD problems of returning soldiers.

IOF troops open fire at farmers in northern Gaza

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened heavy machine gun fire at Palestinian farmers while tending to their lands north of the Gaza Strip on Saturday, local sources reported.

Farmers were forced to abandon their lands due to the heavy gunfire that was coupled with intensified flights for IOF warplanes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to "Normal" in Gaza, courtesy of the IDF.

If the crops are not properly tended, they will be lost to the Palestinians who rely on them for mere survival.

Israel’s New Generation Of Conscientious Objectors

"We cannot ignore the truth - the occupation is a violent, racist, inhumane, illegal, undemocratic, immoral and an extreme condition that presents a mortal danger to both peoples… We, who were educated on the values of liberty, justice, honesty and peace, cannot accept it.

So reads the letter declaring the refusal of 150 students to join the Israeli army this year. Amongst that number is Efi Brenner, 18 years old and an active animal and human rights campaigner. His decision has resulted in ten days imprisonment, with further terms likely, and for his family to throw him out of home. Despite the fallout Efi’s commitment to his decision and the reasons underlying it remain resolute.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bravery and far-sightedness of these young men and women needs to be encouraged and supported by all humans on this planet who truly value human rights.

American soldiers serving in Afghanistan are depressed and deeply disillusioned, according to the chaplains of two US battalions that have spent nine months on the front line in the war against the Taleban.

Many feel that they are risking their lives — and that colleagues have died — for a futile mission and an Afghan population that does nothing to help them, the chaplains told The Times in their makeshift chapel on this fortress-like base in a dusty, brown valley southwest of Kabul.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is high time to end this catastrophically stupid military misadventure, and bring our soldiers safely home.

Hezbollah gears up for new war

Hezbollah is rapidly rearming in preparation for a new conflict with Israel, fearing that Benjamin Netanyahu's government will attack Lebanon again prior to any assault on Iran's nuclear facilities.

The 2006 war between Hezbollah and Israel began after an ill-advised operation by to kidnap two Israeli soldiers, prompting a massive Israeli response that lasted 34 days and killed more than 1,000 people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given Israel's predilection for pre-emptive war, who can blame Hezbollah for re-arming?

And those two Israeli solders were not "kidnapped"; they were inside Lebanese territory when they were apprehended, just to set the record straight

Jordanian Professor: Israel Will Go to War over Water

Israel will go to war against Lebanon and Egypt to solve its water crisis, a Jordanian political science professor has charged. Dr. Ghazi Al-Rababah told the Jordanian Al-Arab Alyawm newspaper that the first war would be in Shebaa farms area, a small part of which Lebanon and Syria have been trying to force Israel to surrender.

Although Israel is taking steps to solve the water shortage by building desalination plants that will be in full production in four years, al-Rababah declared that Israel will wage war against Egypt within seven years in order to control the Nile River.

He accused Israel of "stealing hundreds of millions cubic meters of water from the Litani water in Lebanon, which has violated agreements by diverting water from flowing across the border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As horrendous as such a situation would be for the region and the world, in terms of the kind of destabilization such a war for water resouces would create, I wouldn't bet against it.
