Algerian minister sees no alternative to political settlement in Libya

There is no alternative for political settlement supported by the international community in Libya, and only this can lead the country out of the prolonged crisis, Algeria's Minister for Maghreb Affairs, African Unity and the Arab League Abdelkader Messahel said on Wednesday. Messahel said that "the people of Libya confronting the economic and humanitarian crisis and terrorist threat, want their country to make a national breakthrough." The only way to reach this is "to form a government of national accord in Tripoli" which "will have to overcome difficulties and challenges, including establishing new government institutions and fighting against a terrorist threat," he added.

Kerry arrives in Moscow with third visit over last 12 months

"The situation in Russian-US relations remains uneasy," the Russian Foreign Ministry said. "A series of confrontational steps made by Washington under the pretext of the Ukrainian crisis, has dealt a strong blow to cooperation," the ministry added. Since March 2014, Washington suspended the work of bilateral presidential commission, limited inter-departmental dialogue, introduced in several stages visa and property sanctions against Russian individuals and legal entities. Moreover, bilateral trade turnover shrank by a third in 2015 to $20 billion. In the framework of pre-election polemics, US from time to time voices its concerns about the "Russian threat" which does not add anything positive to bilateral dialogue. Russia regularly raises an issue of removing irritants created by Washington in the bilateral agenda. "We insist on stopping the ‘hunt’ of US law enforcement agencies on Russian citizens in third countries.

Donald Trump Full Speech at AIPAC Policy Conference (3-21-16)

TRUMP: Good evening. Thank you very much.
I speak to you today as a lifelong supporter and true friend of Israel. (CHEERS, APPLAUSE)
I am a newcomer to politics, but not to backing the Jewish state.
In 2001, weeks after the attacks on New York City and on Washington and, frankly, the attacks on all of us, attacks that perpetrated and they were perpetrated by the Islamic fundamentalists,
Mayor Rudy Giuliani visited Israel to show solidarity with terror victims.
I sent my plane because I backed the mission for Israel 100 percent.
In spring of 2004 at the height of the violence in the Gaza Strip, I was the grand marshal of the 40th Salute to Israel Parade, the largest-single gathering in support of the Jewish state......

The Psychological Foundings Of Suicide Bombers: A Palestinian Approach !!

There is no single innocent zionist in Palestine; they are all in all colonizers living on the Palestinian dead bodies and on their land and enjoying the homes of the natives after killing or ethnically cleansing them !!

Have you ever questioned that the ever first “suicide bomber” was a jew? And that he committed his massacre against the joyfully celebrating Palestinians "civilians" in their sacred temple? Why shouldn’t any nation of the world appreciate and even worship their “suicide bombers” like the jews do to this “butcher”?

Trump flouts political convention in response to Brussels attacks

Donald Trump spoke on four TV news shows Tuesday morning, delivering a characteristically blunt assessment of the state of affairs in Europe and the world in the face of radical Islamic terrorism.

His condolences for the victims of the attacks came hours later. In those initial moments, he went straight for action. He once again called for the U.S. to close its borders to foreign Muslims and to reject Syrian refugees. Trump also deplored the changing character of the city of Brussels.

"Brussels was a beautiful city, a beautiful place with zero crime and now it's a disaster city. It's a total disaster. We have to be very careful in the United States. We have to be very vigilant as to who we allow in this country," Trump said on Fox News.

US Lectures Cuba on Human Rights Across From Own Torture Dungeon

By Tony Cartalucci

US President Barrack Obama paid what the Western media hailed as a “historic” visit to Cuba, after decades of isolation imposed upon the island nation by the US and its Western allies.

While many claimed it was a sign of hope for US-Cuban relations, it could equally be equated with similar feigned rapprochements with nations like Syria and Libya, both of which were first offered false peace deals before betrayal and both of which have now been destroyed by years of US-backed proxy war, with Libya’s government being overthrown and its leader along with three generations of his family virtually exterminated by US-NATO military operations.

And as if to prove President Obama’s advocates wrong, the US president used this “historic” visit to publicly humiliate Cuban President Raul Castro regarding alleged human rights abuses the US claims are regularly carried out against “political prisoners.”...
