Readers are invited to listen to the audio by the author. It’s amazing but so true.

I recently did a talk on this subject at the Indian YMCA, and a couple of people have written summaries of it.

London Sound Posse kindly recorded the whole thing and have put it up online here:

A short synopsis and commentary on the talk can be found at 9/11 Cult Watch here, by Paul Stott, who works with the parapolitical journal Notes from the Borderland.

Another synopsis and introduction has been posted by Reprehensor on 9/11 Blogger here.

It’s interesting that websites which offer quite opposing theoretical interpretations of the events of 9/11 are nevertheless both able to appreciate my work in this area.

Video: Shooting taxi drivers in Baghdad July 31, 2007

ABC News has aired this short news item by cameraman Sean Smith of the Guardian. It will sicken you and anyone who watches it, and will make you ask why the British media hasn’t broadcast it.

The clip — an all too rare honest look at the war from a reporter embedded with the Second Infantry Division’s Apache Company in Baghdad — shows tired and overwrought US troops who are into their 14th month of continuous battle, as they respond to a variety of battle situations.

In one case, after watching six of their comrades burn to death trapped inside a Bradley Armored Vehicle that a roadside bomb has flipped over and ignited, the soldiers break into a house, looking for weapons, only to find themselves terrorising an old woman with a zimmer frame, who dissolves into hysterical tears.

In another scene, the men open fire on a car cruising the neighborhood, which they fear might be a terrorist looking for a target. After killing the driver, they learn from a local woman that it was just a taxi driver she had called, who was trying to locate her address.

An angry GI says: “I challenge anybody in Congress to do my rotation… Because we have people up there in Congress with the brain of a two-year-old who don’t know what they’re doing I challenge the president to ride along with me for 15 months. I’ll do another 15 months if he comes out her and rides along with meThey won’t even have to pay me!”

US ‘plans huge Saudi arms deal’ July 28, 2007

Arming the Middle East, is this a good idea?

Which war are they preparing for?

How does Israel feel about this, or is it their doing?

The United States is reported to be preparing a major arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth $20bn (£9.8bn) over the next decade.

It is said to be part of a strategy for countering Iran’s growing strength.

Defence officials quoted by US media and the AFP news agency said it would include missile guidance systems, upgraded fighter jets and naval ships.

To counter objections from Israel, they said, the Jewish state would be offered significantly increased military aid.

But the New York Times says Bush administration officials are concerned that the size of the package and broader concerns about Saudi Arabia’s influence in Iraq could prompt critics in Congress to oppose the package.  read more

Pope’s aide warns of ‘threat by Islam’ July 28, 2007

Posted by infidelkafirwatch in Uncategorized.

Monsignor Georg Gaenswein the private secretary to the pope has warned that Islam is taking over. Or is this a plea to the west not to dumb Christianity for a society where religion plays no part. Once again whatever the pope of private secretaries say about Islam or a wakeup call its just as good as firing blank bullets.

 

The Pope’s private secretary has given warning of the Islamisation of Europe and stressed the need for the continent’s Christian roots not to be ignored, in comments released yesterday. “Attempts to Islamise the West cannot be denied,” Monsignor Georg Gaenswein was quoted as saying in an advance copy of the weekly Sueddeutsche Magazin to be published today. “The danger for the identity of Europe that is connected with it should not be ignored out of a wrongly understood respectfulness,” the magazine quoted him as saying.

A Declaration of Independence From Israel July 28, 2007

I had to include all the text for this excellent piece of work by Chris Hedges. I found it to give true (non-bias) details of how Israel (the illegal state in Palestine) was formed. Although the article is not providing in depth information it does provide a images of the unlimited support Israel has from US to conduct its terror in the Middle East, while still portraying to be victims of the WWI and II.

By Chris Hedges

Israel was born at midnight May 14, 1948. The U.S. recognized the new state 11 minutes later. The two countries have been locked in a deadly embrace ever since.

07/03/07 “Truthdig” — –Israel, without the United States, would probably not exist. The country came perilously close to extinction during the October 1973 war when Egypt, trained and backed by the Soviet Union, crossed the Suez and the Syrians poured in over the Golan Heights. Huge American military transport planes came to the rescue. They began landing every half-hour to refit the battered Israeli army, which had lost most of its heavy armor. By the time the war was over, the United States had given Israel $2.2 billion in emergency military aid.

The intervention, which enraged the Arab world, triggered the OPEC oil embargo that for a time wreaked havoc on Western economies. This was perhaps the most dramatic example of the sustained life-support system the United States has provided to the Jewish state.

Israel was born at midnight May 14, 1948. The U.S. recognized the new state 11 minutes later. The two countries have been locked in a deadly embrace ever since.

Washington, at the beginning of the relationship, was able to be a moderating influence. An incensed President Eisenhower demanded and got Israel’s withdrawal after the Israelis occupied Gaza in 1956. During the Six-Day War in 1967, Israeli warplanes bombed the USS Liberty. The ship, flying the U.S. flag and stationed 15 miles off the Israeli coast, was intercepting tactical and strategic communications from both sides. The Israeli strikes killed 34 U.S. sailors and wounded 171. The deliberate attack froze, for a while, Washington’s enthusiasm for Israel. But ruptures like this one proved to be only bumps, soon smoothed out by an increasingly sophisticated and well-financed Israel lobby that set out to merge Israeli and American foreign policy in the Middle East.

Israel has reaped tremendous rewards from this alliance. It has been given more than $140 billion in U.S. direct economic and military assistance. It receives about $3 billion in direct assistance annually, roughly one-fifth of the U.S. foreign aid budget. Although most American foreign aid packages stipulate that related military purchases have to be made in the United States, Israel is allowed to use about 25 percent of the money to subsidize its own growing and profitable defense industry. It is exempt, unlike other nations, from accounting for how it spends the aid money. And funds are routinely siphoned off to build new Jewish settlements, bolster the Israeli occupation in the Palestinian territories and construct the security barrier, which costs an estimated $1 million a mile.

The barrier weaves its way through the West Bank, creating isolated pockets of impoverished Palestinians in ringed ghettos. By the time the barrier is finished it will probably in effect seize up to 40 percent of Palestinian land. This is the largest land grab by Israel since the 1967 war. And although the United States officially opposes settlement expansion and the barrier, it also funds them.

The U.S. has provided Israel with nearly $3 billion to develop weapons systems and given Israel access to some of the most sophisticated items in its own military arsenal, including Blackhawk attack helicopters and F-16 fighter jets. The United States also gives Israel access to intelligence it denies to its NATO allies. And when Israel refused to sign the nuclear nonproliferation treaty, the United States stood by without a word of protest as the Israelis built the region’s first nuclear weapons program.

U.S. foreign policy, especially under the current Bush administration, has become little more than an extension of Israeli foreign policy. The United States since 1982 has vetoed 32 Security Council resolutions critical of Israel, more than the total number of vetoes cast by all the other Security Council members. It refuses to enforce the Security Council resolutions it claims to support. These resolutions call on Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories.

There is now volcanic anger and revulsion by Arabs at this blatant favoritism. Few in the Middle East see any distinction between Israeli and American policies, nor should they. And when the Islamic radicals speak of U.S. support of Israel as a prime reason for their hatred of the United States, we should listen. The consequences of this one-sided relationship are being played out in the disastrous war in Iraq, growing tension with Iran, and the humanitarian and political crisis in Gaza. It is being played out in Lebanon, where Hezbollah is gearing up for another war with Israel, one most Middle East analysts say is inevitable. The U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East is unraveling. And it is doing so because of this special relationship. The eruption of a regional conflict would usher in a nightmare of catastrophic proportions.

There were many in the American foreign policy establishment and State Department who saw this situation coming. The decision to throw our lot in with Israel in the Middle East was not initially a popular one with an array of foreign policy experts, including President Harry Truman’s secretary of state, Gen. George Marshall. They warned there would be a backlash. They knew the cost the United States would pay in the oil-rich region for this decision, which they feared would be one of the greatest strategic blunders of the postwar era. And they were right. The decision has jeopardized American and Israeli security and created the kindling for a regional conflagration.

The alliance, which makes no sense in geopolitical terms, does makes sense when seen through the lens of domestic politics. The Israel lobby has become a potent force in the American political system. No major candidate, Democrat or Republican, dares to challenge it. The lobby successfully purged the State Department of Arab experts who challenged the notion that Israeli and American interests were identical. Backers of Israel have doled out hundreds of millions of dollars to support U.S. political candidates deemed favorable to Israel. They have brutally punished those who strayed, including the first President Bush, who they said was not vigorous enough in his defense of Israeli interests. This was a lesson the next Bush White House did not forget. George W. Bush did not want to be a one-term president like his father.

Israel advocated removing Saddam Hussein from power and currently advocates striking Iran to prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons. Direct Israeli involvement in American military operations in the Middle East is impossible. It would reignite a war between Arab states and Israel. The United States, which during the Cold War avoided direct military involvement in the region, now does the direct bidding of Israel while Israel watches from the sidelines. During the 1991 Gulf War, Israel was a spectator, just as it is in the war with Iraq.

President Bush, facing dwindling support for the war in Iraq, publicly holds Israel up as a model for what he would like Iraq to become. Imagine how this idea plays out on the Arab street, which views Israel as the Algerians viewed the French colonizers during the war of liberation.

“In Israel,” Bush said recently, “terrorists have taken innocent human life for years in suicide attacks. The difference is that Israel is a functioning democracy and it’s not prevented from carrying out its responsibilities. And that’s a good indicator of success that we’re looking for in Iraq.”

Americans are increasingly isolated and reviled in the world. They remain blissfully ignorant of their own culpability for this isolation. U.S. “spin” paints the rest of the world as unreasonable, but Israel, Americans are assured, will always be on our side.

Israel is reaping economic as well as political rewards from its lock-down apartheid state. In the “gated community” market it has begun to sell systems and techniques that allow the nation to cope with terrorism. Israel, in 2006, exported $3.4 billion in defense products—well over a billion dollars more than it received in American military aid. Israel has grown into the fourth largest arms dealer in the world. Most of this growth has come in the so-called homeland security sector

“The key products and services,” as Naomi Klein wrote in The Nation, “are hi-tech fences, unmanned drones, biometric IDs, video and audio surveillance gear, air passenger profiling and prisoner interrogation systems—precisely the tools and technologies Israel has used to lock in the occupied territories. And that is why the chaos in Gaza and the rest of the region doesn’t threaten the bottom line in Tel Aviv, and may actually boost it. Israel has learned to turn endless war into a brand asset, pitching its uprooting, occupation and containment of the Palestinian people as a half-century head start in the ‘global war on terror.’ ”

The United States, at least officially, does not support the occupation and calls for a viable Palestinian state. It is a global player, with interests that stretch well beyond the boundaries of the Middle East, and the equation that Israel’s enemies are our enemies is not that simple.

“Terrorism is not a single adversary,” John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt wrote in The London Review of Books, “but a tactic employed by a wide array of political groups. The terrorist organizations that threaten Israel do not threaten the United States, except when it intervenes against them (as in Lebanon in 1982). Moreover, Palestinian terrorism is not random violence directed against Israel or ‘the West’; it is largely a response to Israel’s prolonged campaign to colonize the West Bank and Gaza Strip. More important, saying that Israel and the US are united by a shared terrorist threat has the causal relationship backwards: the US has a terrorism problem in good part because it is so closely allied with Israel, not the other way around.”

Middle Eastern policy is shaped in the United States by those with very close ties to the Israel lobby. Those who attempt to counter the virulent Israeli position, such as former Secretary of State Colin Powell, are ruthlessly slapped down. This alliance was true also during the Clinton administration, with its array of Israel-first Middle East experts, including special Middle East coordinator Dennis Ross and Martin Indyk, the former deputy director of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, AIPAC, one of the most powerful Israel lobbying groups in Washington. But at least people like Indyk and Ross are sane, willing to consider a Palestinian state, however unviable, as long as it is palatable to Israel. The Bush administration turned to the far-right wing of the Israel lobby, those who have not a shred of compassion for the Palestinians or a word of criticism for Israel. These new Middle East experts include Elliott Abrams, John Bolton, Douglas Feith, the disgraced I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and David Wurmser.

Washington was once willing to stay Israel’s hand. It intervened to thwart some of its most extreme violations of human rights. This administration, however, has signed on for every disastrous Israeli blunder, from building the security barrier in the West Bank, to sealing off Gaza and triggering a humanitarian crisis, to the ruinous invasion and saturation bombing of Lebanon.

The few tepid attempts by the Bush White House to criticize Israeli actions have all ended in hasty and humiliating retreats in the face of Israeli pressure. When the Israel Defense Forces in April 2002 reoccupied the West Bank, President Bush called on then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to “halt the incursions and begin withdrawal.” It never happened. After a week of heavy pressure from the Israel lobby and Israel’s allies in Congress, meaning just about everyone in Congress, the president gave up, calling Sharon “a man of peace.” It was a humiliating moment for the United States, a clear sign of who pulled the strings.

There were several reasons for the war in Iraq. The desire for American control of oil, the belief that Washington could build puppet states in the region, and a real, if misplaced, fear of Saddam Hussein played a part in the current disaster. But it was also strongly shaped by the notion that what is good for Israel is good for the United States. Israel wanted Iraq neutralized. Israeli intelligence, in the lead-up to the war, gave faulty information to the U.S. about Iraq’s alleged arsenal of weapons of mass destruction. And when Baghdad was taken in April 2003, the Israeli government immediately began to push for an attack on Syria. The lust for this attack has waned, in no small part because the Americans don’t have enough troops to hang on in Iraq, much less launch a new occupation.

Israel is currently lobbying the United States to launch aerial strikes on Iran, despite the debacle in Lebanon. Israel’s iron determination to forcibly prevent a nuclear Iran makes it probable that before the end of the Bush administration an attack on Iran will take place. The efforts to halt nuclear development through diplomatic means have failed. It does not matter that Iran poses no threat to the United States. It does not matter that it does not even pose a threat to Israel, which has several hundred nuclear weapons in its arsenal. It matters only that Israel demands total military domination of the Middle East.

The alliance between Israel and the United States has culminated after 50 years in direct U.S. military involvement in the Middle East. This involvement, which is not furthering American interests, is unleashing a geopolitical nightmare. American soldiers and Marines are dying in droves in a useless war. The impotence of the United States in the face of Israeli pressure is complete. The White House and the Congress have become, for perhaps the first time, a direct extension of Israeli interests. There is no longer any debate within the United States. This is evidenced by the obsequious nods to Israel by all the current presidential candidates with the exception of Dennis Kucinich. The political cost for those who challenge Israel is too high.

This means there will be no peaceful resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. It means the incidents of Islamic terrorism against the U.S. and Israel will grow. It means that American power and prestige are on a steep, irreversible decline. And I fear it also means the ultimate end of the Jewish experiment in the Middle East.

The weakening of the United States, economically and militarily, is giving rise to new centers of power. The U.S. economy, mismanaged and drained by the Iraq war, is increasingly dependent on Chinese trade imports and on Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities. China holds dollar reserves worth $825 billion. If Beijing decides to abandon the U.S. bond market, even in part, it would cause a free fall by the dollar. It would lead to the collapse of the $7-trillion U.S. real estate market. There would be a wave of U.S. bank failures and huge unemployment. The growing dependence on China has been accompanied by aggressive work by the Chinese to build alliances with many of the world’s major exporters of oil, such as Iran, Nigeria, Sudan and Venezuela. The Chinese are preparing for the looming worldwide clash over dwindling resources.

The future is ominous. Not only do Israel’s foreign policy objectives not coincide with American interests, they actively hurt them. The growing belligerence in the Middle East, the calls for an attack against Iran, the collapse of the imperial project in Iraq have all given an opening, where there was none before, to America’s rivals. It is not in Israel’s interests to ignite a regional conflict. It is not in ours. But those who have their hands on the wheel seem determined, in the name of freedom and democracy, to keep the American ship of state headed at breakneck speed into the cliffs before us.

Why Boycott Israel? Because It’s Good for You July 27, 2007

BY GABRIEL ASH ||\ • Dateline: June 27, 2007

The boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel’s Apartheid scored an important victory recently when the British University and College Union (UCU) decided to circulate “the full text of the Palestinian boycott call to all branches for information and discussion” and “encourage members to consider the moral implications of existing and proposed links with Israeli academic institutions.” The UCU resolution is in fact quite moderate. Nevertheless, it raised the profile of the campaign and elicited a round of shrill, wall-to-wall condemnations, from newspapers, foundations, politicians and governments. Shockingly, not a single media mogul (or any mogul, for that matter) is in favor of the boycott!

The major argument for boycotting Israel is that it is the right thing to do. And it is. But for those of us who live off wages and depend on public services, it is also the smart thing to do — especially in Europe, where the BDS campaign is now facing a vocal onslaught. Support for Israel is an important pillar of an islamophobic, anti-immigrant and pro-war front, which includes many in the political leadership of Europe; their final prize is finishing off the welfare state. In the second part, I will also show that it is this front — not the UCU — that is heir to Europe’s historical anti-Semitism.

Europe’s political leadership is not merely opposed to boycotting Israel. The European Union, supported by politicians in every European country, has joined the US and Israel in a policy of siege, starving Palestinians of aid, medical supplies and food. The policy punishes Palestinians for daring to democratically replace a corrupt and ineffectual leadership. The EU supports Israel’s demands for Palestinians to unconditionally surrender: one sided “renouncement of violence,” and one-sided “recognition of Israel.” Israel, of course, is free to continue assassinations and bombing and need not recognize any Palestinian rights. Furthermore, European aid money, both public and private, is deployed strategically to help entrench the occupation, increase Palestinian dependency and discourage resistance. At the same time, as Alexander Yakobson writes in Ha’aretz:  [read more]

Israeli navy Chief quits over Lebanon war failures

The Israeli navy commander has resigned his post over failures during last summer’s aggression against Lebanon, senior security officials say.

Admiral David Ben Ba’ashat submitted a letter of resignation on Thursday, terminating his tenure as an Israeli navy chief. Ba’ashat resignation comes in the wake of severe criticism of navy failures during the aggression, which Israel calls the second Lebanon war. Ba’ashat is just the latest high ranking Israeli to step down after the summer’s war, in which Hezbollah fired almost 4,000 rockets at northern Israeli targets despite a full-scale invasion of Israeli ground, sea and air forces.

During the summer’s war, ‘Israel’ failed to achieve its stated aim of freeing two Israeli soldiers captured by Hezbollah resistance fighters. The Lebanese national resistance movement also killed 117 Israeli occupation soldiers, dealing a crushing blow to the Israeli military’s myth of invincibility.

Israeli Defence minister Amir Peretz, the outgoing army chief of staff during the war, Dan Halutz, and an area military commander resigned earlier.

The outgoing commander of the naval commando sent a harsh letter to Ba’ashat several months after the end of the war, in which he expressed his dissatisfaction with the conduct of the navy’s top echelon during last summer’s invasion. Ba’ashat served as the commander of the Israeli navy for three years.

The war also cost the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert most of his public support, and he faces pressure to step down. An Israeli inquiry’s preliminary report on April 30 heaped scathing criticism on all three senior officials but directed its sharpest barbs at Olmert, blaming him for hasty decisions and failure to set out attainable objectives. The navy’s main failure during the war was a Hezbollah missile attack on a navy missile boat that killed four sailors.

It emerged that since Israel did not believe Hezbollah had weapons to attack its ships and the navy did not activate the on-board anti-missile system.

The inquiry commission is expected to present its final report by early next year, and the incident with the missile boat is likely to be considered, with harsh conclusions about the navy command.

The security officials said Ben Ba’ashat would stay on until a new commander is ready to replace him, probably by October [read more].

Iran’s Jews reject cash offer to move to Israel July 14, 2007

Posted by infidelkafirwatch in Uncategorized.

Iran’s Jews slap Israel in the face.

· Expats offer families £30,000 to emigrate
· Our identity is not for sale, say community leaders

Robert Tait in Tehran
Thursday July 12, 2007
Guardian Unlimited

Iran’s Jews have given the country a loyalty pledge in the face of cash offers aimed at encouraging them to move to Israel, the arch-enemy of its Islamic rulers.

The incentives — ranging from £5,000 a person to £30,000 for families — were offered from a special fund established by wealthy expatriate Jews in an effort to prompt a mass migration to Israel from among Iran’s 25,000-strong Jewish community. The offers were made with Israel’s official blessing and were additional to the usual state packages it provides to Jews emigrating from the diaspora.

However, the Society of Iranian Jews dismissed them as “immature political enticements” and said their national identity was not for sale.

“The identity of Iranian Jews is not tradeable for any amount of money,” the society said in a statement. “Iranian Jews are among the most ancient Iranians. Iran’s Jews love their Iranian identity and their culture, so threats and this immature political enticement will not achieve their aim of wiping out the identity of Iranian Jews.”

The Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv reported that the incentives had been doubled after earlier offers of £2,500 a head failed to attract any Iranian Jews to leave for Israel.

Iran’s sole Jewish MP, Morris Motamed, said the offers were insulting and put the country’s Jews under pressure to prove their loyalty.

“It suggests the Iranian Jew can be encouraged to emigrate by money,” he said. “Iran’s Jews have always been free to emigrate and three-quarters of them did so after the revolution but 70% of those went to America, not Israel.”

Iran’s Jewish population has dwindled from around 80,000 at the time of the 1979 Islamic revolution but remains the largest of any country in the Middle East apart from Israel. Jews have lived in Iran since at least 700BC.

Hostility between Iran’s Islamic government and Israel means Iranian Jews are often subject to official mistrust and scrutiny. In 2000 10 Jews in the southern city of Shiraz were jailed for spying for Israel, which Iran refuses to recognise.

A Jewish businessman, Ruhollah Kadkhodah-Zadeh, was hanged in 1998, apparently for allegedly helping Jews to emigrate.

Jews generally avoid political controversy, but Mr Motamed wrote a letter of protest to Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, last year after he called the Holocaust “a myth”. Mr Ahmadinejad had earlier said that Israel should be “wiped off the map”.

Jews are free to practise their religion and have their own schools, although they are forced to open on Saturdays, the Jewish sabbath.

Despite the absence of diplomatic ties with Israel, Iranian Jews frequently go there to visit relatives.

by Antony Loewenstein July 14th, 2007 in Israel

After spending time with Jews in Iran over the last months and hearing about their lives in the Islamic Republic – they’re free to practice in peace and are not particularly discriminated against – this news is predictable:

Iran’s Jews have given the country a loyalty pledge in the face of cash offers aimed at encouraging them to move to Israel, the arch-enemy of its Islamic rulers.

The incentives — ranging from £5,000 a person to £30,000 for families — were offered from a special fund established by wealthy expatriate Jews in an effort to prompt a mass migration to Israel from among Iran’s 25,000-strong Jewish community.

If Iranian Jews speak openly of their support for Israel, they would certainly run into troubles with the authorities. But the arrogant presumption of this offer is that every Iranian Jew is desperately unhappy in their country and dying to leave. This is certainly not the impression I received when I was there.

Mark Perry, Rootless Cosmopolitan, July 6:

In the end, the Europeans might well know the Americans are wrong (that a boycott of Hamas will not work, that the war in Iraq was a blood-filled waste, that a confrontation with Iran will lead to a military debacle, that Afghanistan is lost…), indeed, might well be convinced that the American program cannot and will not succeed, ever, anywhere. They might know it now and might someday in the future say that they told us so. Even so, the nation’s of Europe, that grand alliance, will never splinter, as it nearly did in February of 2003. For Europe’s calculation is quite like Churchill’s: they would rather be wrong with us, than right alone.

George Bush Sr. operated a secret government while a senile Ronald Reagan dozed and coasted on his Hollywood presentation skills.Yet when the Iran-Contra scandal broke, Reagan and others took the heat, while George Sr. remained safely in the shadows.Shameless, contemptuous of the law, and masterful liars…many of the members of the Bush Sr. support term manage things today behind the scenes for Junior.

France warns Israel over possible attempt to kidnap Hizbullah members July 14, 2007

Kuwaiti newspaper report says France received intelligence information according to which Mossad is planning to kidnap members of Shiite group participating in conference of Lebanese groups near Paris

Ali Waked Published: 07.14.07, 18:45

France has recently warned Israel not to harm Hizbullah members participating in a convention of Lebanese groups being held near Paris these days.

The Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Seyassah reported Saturday that the French government told Israel an attempt to harm any of the Hizbullah delegates would hinder relations between the countries.

According to the report, the warning was issued after French intelligence received information saying Mossad was planning to attack Hizbullah Advertisement

and Amal (Lebanese Resistance Detachments) representatives at the conference.

Al-Seyassah said the information, received from both Israel and Jordan, said Mossad was planning to kidnap members of the Shiite group with the aim of using them as bargaining chips in future negotiations for the release of Israeli soldiers Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, who have been held captive by Hizbullah since July 2006.

More than 400 French officers are securing the venue, the report said.

US to take OIL from Iraq (finally after 4 years of smoke screens) July 5, 2007

The OIL fields are finally insight (for the US). This news you will not hear from the main stream media, as the UK bomb plot smoke screen is keeping them occupied in pumping fear and terror into the hearts and minds of western societies. Under this smoke screen the US are rubbing they hands together with excitement as their BLACK OIL dream finally come true:

Under sustained US pressure, Iraqi cabinet sends oil law to parliament

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki went before the media on Tuesday to announce that his cabinet had “unanimously” approved US-backed draft legislation covering the future development of Iraq’s vast oil resources. The legislation embodies the criminal aims and objectives of the US invasion of Iraq more than four years ago. Behind the false claims about Iraqi “weapons of mass destruction” and links to terrorism were the ambitions of American energy conglomerates to access the country’s huge reserves—estimated at between 115 and 215 billion barrels of oil. MWC: Confusion clouds new Iraq oil law.

Wait, that’s not all…

Iraq’s Council of the Ulema, a group of senior Sunni Muslim clerics led by Sheikh Harith al-Darri, has emitted a fatwa (religious edict) forbidding members of parliament from ratifying a draft law on oil and gas which has already been approved by the government of prime minister Nouri al-Maliki.

The crucial oil law that the United States is pressing Baghdad to pass to boost reconciliation between the country’s Sunnis and Shiites now goes to parliament for debate.

Australian troops to stay in Iraq for oil

The Australian government has linked the need to secure oil supplies to the country’s continued military presence in Iraq.

In a major speech outlining his government’s foreign policy in Canberra on Thursday, Prime Minister John Howard said the Middle East is crucial to Australia’s strategic and economic future.

“Islamist terrorism will remain a threat to Australia, to Australian interests and to our allies, globally and in South East Asia,” he said.

“The government remains committed to staying in Iraq with our coalition partners until the Iraqi security forces no longer require our support,” he said.

Australia, a close ally of the United States, joined the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and keeps about 1,500 soldiers in and around the Gulf country.

The prime minister also said there is a danger that globalization would facilitate terrorism and transnational crime and spark a resurgence of protectionist policies that could lead to disputes over commodities like oil.

“Whether in Afghanistan or Iraq, it would not only run counter to our national interests, but also to our national character to let (terrorists) prevail,” he said.

Australian Greens Party leader Bob Brown slammed Howard’s admission that oil supply is a reason for going to war.

“Saddam Hussein’s oil, not weapons of mass destruction, was in the Bush-Blair-Howard mindset in this monumental mistake which has cost a reported 67,000 civilian lives,” he said in a statement.

“It has boosted global terrorism and undermined Australia’s homeland security,” he said.

This is the biggest news ever after the illegal invasion of Iraq, but this will go unheard and will be buried just like the people of Iraq. This is the climax for the whole WAR ON TERROR.

Terror and the media’s “useful idiots” July 5, 2007

What is the media’s responsibility during a terror alert? Should it whip up fear to attract more readers, listeners and viewers? Should it exploit the incident to foment xenophobia, suspend civil liberties and seek revenge on ethnic groups vaguely linked to the incident? Should they assist the terrorists in creating mass panic?

Of course not. Yet this is just what the UK media – backed by police and politicians — appears to be doing in response to the terror scares in London and Glasgow.  [read more]

Work in Progress: Formulating the Antidote to Sectarian Division and “Creative Destruction” July 2, 2007

Posted by infidelkafirwatch in Uncategorized.
10 comments

 It is well-known by now that nothing unfolding in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon and now Palestine is happening by chance or as a result of decisions made on the fly. We know that the document “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm” , which was prepared in 1996 for Benjamin Netanyahu, outlined some of the policies now being implemented by Usrael in Iraq and soon in Lebanon, Palestine and Syria, if given a chance.

Also the document by Oded Yinon “A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties”, published in 1982, was very explicit in formulating an essential element of the strategy being followed now:

“….The plan operates on two essential premises. To survive, Israel must 1) become an imperial regional power, and 2) must effect the division of the whole area into small states by the dissolution of all existing Arab states. Small here will depend on the ethnic or sectarian composition of each state. Consequently, the Zionist hope is that sectarian-based states become Israel’s satellites and, ironically, its source of moral legitimation.”

As an essential element of the resistance to such a scheme to fragment and to dominate the Arab and Muslim worlds, counter-strategies are needed. It is very disheartening to see the success of this Israeli strategy in Iraq where sectarian fires have been successfully lit. Whereas in 1920 all Iraqis, Sunni and Shiite, Arab and Kurd fought the British invaders, today they are more interested in fighting each other. This did not happen by itself; the sectarian fires were started and are kept going by the Usraeli occupation.

The Arab and Muslim Middle East has so many ethnic and religious groupings which have managed to co-exist and thrive together for centuries, before this plague of Zionism and neo-colonial Usraeli presence was visited upon it. As a part of counter strategies, we need to develop our own strategies that stress the elements of cohesiveness, the shared history, culture and future of all living in the region and who suffer and will be suffering as a result of Zio-American policies of forced disintegration.

This is a rich area for research and development, especially for sociologists, anthropologists, historians, religious scholars and various social scientists. I happen not to be in any one of these groups, but I realize the need for a comprehensive strategy that rises to the level of this challenge.

Therefore, I would like to elicit ideas from all of the visitors to this blog. Please contribute and share your thoughts in the comment section. I would like to incorporate these ideas in this work in progress. With your help and contribution this could become a worthwhile effort. I thank you in advance.  [source]

Ban The Bible – Please read. July 1, 2007

Dear visitors.

I have had a polite email from Hawk (a lost sole) who requested for me to post on my blog the information which I provided to him regarding the Bible and the ample amount of filth that has been added to it since it was first revealed.

I would however like to remind the readers that Muslim’s and Islam fully believe in Jesus but as a prophet and not son of God.  Muslim’s and Islam do not disrespect Jesus or his ORIGINAL Christian religion but totally disagree with the Bible and the amounts of addition, deletion and amendments to it.

So if you have the courage to face the polluted bible then please visit this site and read for your self.  Incidently this site is not run by any Muslim.
