Lebanon likely to pass ‘racist’ decision on Palestinian refugee camps

[ 31/07/2011 – 07:29 PM ]  
BEIRUT, (PIC)– Lebanon is leaning towards passing new ”racist” decisions affecting the Palestinian refugee camps in the country, Palestinian and Lebanese sources have revealed.
A proposal has been made for an item on the government’s agenda to be held next Wednesday against the interests of the Palestinian refugees, Lebanese sources told the Palestinian refugees news network in Lebanon (Laji Net).
The sources added the Council of Ministers is leaning towards deciding on the following:
Prohibiting reconstruction inside the refugee camps without prior permission.
Requesting that the UN Palestinian refugees agency (UNRWA) does not bring in building materials without prior detailed permission.
Closing all of the camps’ entrances that were once open to pedestrians, and restricting access to the camps’ vehicular entrances. It is said that most of the camps have only one entrance.
Deeming the decision to be in the best interests of the Palestinians.
In statements to Laji Net, official Palestinian sources have condemned the decision and confirmed the information to be correct.
”Slaughter cannot be to the interest of the Palestinians,” a source said, ridiculing the last item.
The officials said they had been weighing the issue with several ministers over the past three days in a bid to solve the problem. They suggested postponing bringing the topic up at the upcoming session to allow for opening political dialogue between the government under Prime Minister Najib Mikati and the refugees so that the pending issues can be discussed later on in one package.
”We reject opening Palestinian issues in segments,” the officials declared.
The expected decision has been received with popular unrest inside the camps. There are fears that it could develop into major popular movements.
The sources added that it would be the worst decision to have been made by the new Lebanese government thus far and the worst in the country’s history since the work and ownership ban.

Israel and the American Jewish Voter

var addthis_product = ‘wpp-261’;var addthis_config = {“data_track_clickback”:true};

Assemblyman David I. Weprin, center, is a Democrat running against Bob Turner for the House seat Anthony D. Weiner gave up.

The Jewish voters in the ninth district are numerous. Almost half of the population is Jewish, many of them observant, and a significant number of them, 30 to 35%, regularly turn out to vote

Part I

The 27 July 2011 New York Times has a front page article about the upcoming September 13 special election for New York City’s Ninth Congressional District seat. The article opens a window on the political use of Israel as a campaign touchstone. The Ninth District, the most heavily Jewish District in the nation, is the one recently vacated by Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner who was, of course, a loyal supporter of Israel. Alas, he was also a man with a strong libido and no discretion. He was forced to step down after electronically sharing obscene pictures of himself with at least six women. The Democratic and Republican candidates who seek to fill this seat are not known for gross indiscretion in their private lives (though who knows what skeletons lurk in which closets), yet in their public pursuit of this Congressional seat they seem to be drawn, as by an irresistible political force, to follow Weiner’s lead and do obeisance at the alter of Zionism. Is this yet another form of folly?

Both candidates, Democratic Assemblyman David I. Weprin and his Republican opponent, Bob Turner (a retired cable television executive) are involved in a process of “one-upmanship on who is more pro-Israel.” One would think that Turner would have no chance in such a competition seeing as how Weprin is an “Orthodox Jew who keeps a kosher home, observes the Sabbath, and has been to Israel at least eight times.” Nonetheless, he is playing this game with some serious support.

“On Monday [July 25], former Mayor Edward Koch, [a Jew and] a Democrat, endorsed the Republican candidate”on the basis that a Democrat, even one who is a strong supporter of Israel, can not be strong enough as long as President Obama holds the White House. Koch argues that only the election of a strong Republican supporter of Israel will “rebuke” the president for saying “that Israel’s pre-1967 border should be the basis for a peace agreement.” Former Mayor Koch, apparently not just physically but also mentally 87 years old, seems not to care that a Republican candidate may end up supporting domestic positions that can ruin the United States. He is obsessed with a single issue, Israel.

You would think that this obsession with Israel and its 1967 borders is pretty crazy in an election for someone to represent the interests of parts New York City that have names like Queens, Kew Gardens, Flatbush and Sheepshead Bay. And aren’t there numerous other issues, vital to the health of the nation, such as the federal budget and deficit, the fate of Medicare and Social Security, etc. that ought to hold voters’ attention? So who cares about some foreign country approximately 6,000 miles away? Well, according to Cynthia Zalisky, the executive director of the Queens Jewish Community Council, it is not only Ed Koch who is obsessed. She tells us that “how the candidates feel about Israel and the president’s concept of the pre-1967 borders is going to resonate in this district.” Donald Schwartz, an Orthodox Jewish activist from Kew Gardens agrees. He says that the Democratic candidate is not a sufficiently “fierce advocate” for Israel and his election would allow President Obama to “take the Jewish vote for granted.”

Former Mayor Edward Koch — NYC

All of this should raise eyebrows. Just how many Jewish voters are we talking about? And, how do we know that most care about what the Zionist activists care about? Why should it always be assumed that the Jewish vote turns on the question of Israel? The New York Times article answers the first of the these questions. The Jewish voters in the ninth district are numerous. Almost half of the population is Jewish, many of them observant, and a significant number of them, 30 to 35%, regularly turn out to vote. Thus, as political consultant Jerry Skurnik puts it, “you can’t get wiped out in the Jewish vote and expect to win a district like this.” Ok. But why assume most of those 30 to 35% of Jewish voters prioritize Israel when they vote, or are dissatisfied with President Obama on the issue of Israeli borders? You know, Mr. Weprin did endorse same sex marriage and that has upset some of the Orthodox community. Yet the New York Times really has its focus on the question of loyalty to Israel and takes it for granted that those Zionist activists who shout loudest know what the silent majority is thinking. On the other hand, maybe the Ninth is somehow special. Maybe Israeli settlements do top social security. It is depressing to think so, but it is possible.

Part II

Just for argument sake, let’s go with the notion that the Ninth District is indeed special. So lets say that the candidates do have to cater to specifically Jewish opinion to win this district, and that enough Jewish votes turn on the issue of Israel’s 1967 borders that candidates have to play the Zionist card to win.

What should those who oppose kowtowing to Zionist influence (and there are organizations of anti-Zionist Jews out there) do about this? Here are three possible approaches:
1. Find a way to increase the non-Jewish voter turnout. The political party that can do this can probably destroy the formula set forth above by Jerry Skurnik.
2. Find a way to get as many of the Jewish voters as possible to shed the single issue picture painted of them by the Zionists. There is probably an undercurrent of resentment about this one dimensional representation. Someone should tap into it. To this end, we proceed to #3.
3. Find a way to form a Jewish, but non-Zionist, political cadre to compete for Jewish voter support within the Democratic Party in the Ninth District and others like it. Give the Democratic Jewish voters a democratic choice.
Number one is the least volatile of these efforts. The consequences of pushing numbers 2 and 3 really depend on just how deep the Zionist “Jewish activists” are entrenched. Depending on that question, one of two things could happen. If the Israeli obsession is in fact only skin deep, that is only an issue for a relatively small, albeit vocal, minority of Jewish voters, it should be overcome pretty easily by insisting on the greater importance of domestic concerns. Those issues, closer to home, will then come to the fore as candidate touchstones and Israel will recede to the lower end of the list of important factors. If, however, a notable percentage of the Ninth District’s Jewish voters are obsessed with Israel, then concerted efforts as described in 2 and 3 could result in blood in the streets.

Part III

Either way, something really should be done to challenge the prevailing assumption that Israel is the touchstone political issue for American Jewish voters. Whatever might be the case in the Ninth District, this level of concern for Israel is probably not true of Jews nationally. On a national level most U.S. Jews vote Democratic and probably do so regardless of the candidates position on Israel. In fact, my bet is that both political parties don’t really scramble for Jewish votes which, except for rare places like the Ninth District, are minuscule.

What they scramble for is Jewish lobby money. And the Jewish lobby is not only obsessed with Israel, for all intents and purposes it functions as unregistered agent of that country. So to get the money you have to do your obeisance at the alter of Zionism.

This situation is potentially more dangerous then most American Jews realize. The Zionist hold over U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East has already cost the country dearly. It was at least part of the reason we were attacked on 9/11 and why we subsequently invaded Iraq. The Israel connection has alienated America from the entire Muslim world and helped encourage domestic racism in the form of Islamophobia. What happens if this orientation continues and results in more wars, more terrorist attacks and greater debilitation of the domestic budget? At some point the American public, looking for reasons for these disasters, may well focus on lobby influence and the prioritizing of the interests of a foreign land 6000 miles away. At that point it will not be just AIPAC (American Israeli Public Affairs Committee) that will pay the price. The Zionist insistence that all Jews support Israel, as untrue as it is, will have stereotyped American Jewry and anti-Semitism will quickly become a serious issue.
Therefore, it is in the best interests of the American Jewish community to shed the image of the single issue voter, to consciously begin to hold those Zionist activists at arms length, and to join with those groups, such as Jewish Voices for Peace, that reject any demand that they do obeisance at the alter of Zionism.
Quite frankly, the leaders of Israel are fanatics, the true believers of the American Zionist lobbies are fanatics, and Ed Koch is a fanatic. Most American Jews are not fanatics and it is time they let the rest of the country know it.

Deadly Clash in Libya Rebel Capital

Local Editor
A deadly clash broke out in Libya’s rebel capital of Benghazi in the wake of the murder of their military chief, as the Gaddafi regime said Sunday it was in contact with rebel leadership members.
Four rebels were killed in the clash with a pro- Gaddafi group in Benghazi overnight, a rebel spokesman said.
“It was a long battle and it took many hours because they were heavily armed,” Mahmud Shamman said. “In the end we arrested 31 of them. We lost four people.”
He added the group, which suffered “about 20 casualties,” was rounded up for its role in organizing a prison break in Benghazi earlier in the week.
Rebel forces had surrounded the camp of the group linked to Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi after they refused to obey an order from the rebels’ National Transitional Council (NTC) for all militias to disband and lay down their arms.
The clash follows last week’s assassination of rebel military chief General Abdel Fatah Yunis, whose death remains cloaked in mystery. The general was a right-hand man to Gaddafi before his defection to the rebel ranks.
While the rebels tried to quash rumors about the mysterious death of their army chief, the Gaddafi regime said it was in contact with members of the NTC.
“There are contacts with Mahmud Jibril (number two in the NTC), and (Ali) Essawy (in charge of external relations), (religious leader Ali) Sallabi and others,” deputy foreign minister Khaled Kaaim told a Tripoli news conference.
Gaddafi on Saturday night renewed his pledge “never to abandon” the battle, in an audio tape broadcast on state television despite NATO air strikes earlier the same day on the broadcaster’s headquarters in Tripoli.
The rebels, who have frequently denied having had any direct negotiations with Tripoli, sought to stamp out rumors by giving details on Yunis’s killing and bringing all militias under the control of the NTC interior ministry.
Meanwhile, the Benghazi villa of the murdered general was surrounded by checkpoints early on Sunday and no traffic allowed on the coastal city’s main highway.

French Defense Minister Gerard Longuet

South of Benghazi, rebels reported an attack by pro- Gaddafi forces on the southern oasis town of Jalo, but said it had been repulsed.
On the western front in the five-month-old armed revolt, Libyan rebels on Sunday took the village of Josh at the foot of the Nafusa mountain range.
The Nafusa region has seen heavy fighting between rebels and forces loyal to Gaddafi since the insurgents launched a major offensive this month in a drive on Tripoli.
NATO said its warplanes carried out 50 strike sorties on Saturday, with hits in the areas of Brega, Zliten, Waddan and Tripoli.
France said on Sunday it was committed to striking Gaddafi’s military assets for as long as needed for him to quit power, and called on Libyans in Tripoli to rise up against him.
“We say to Gaddafi that we will not ease our pressure and to his opponents that we will not abandon them,” French Defense Minister Gerard Longuet was quoted as saying by the newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche.
“Things have to move more in Tripoli… the population must rise up,” he added.

Oslo Terror Attacks: Zionism Rears Its Ugly Head Again

Norway is understandably in deep shock following the horrific shooting spree and bomb attack in Oslo last Friday 22 July. The worst terrorist atrocity in Europe since the 2004 Madrid train bombings has left the country reeling. An enormous bomb exploded somewhere within a complex of government buildings at 3.30 in the afternoon. The offices of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg appear to have been the main target, although the Oil Ministry’s building across the road was also destroyed. The blast was so powerful that windows were blown out along several blocks. Seven people were killed and many more injured by flying glass and debris. The perpetrator(s) chose a public holiday to carry out the deed, so most government employees were not working that day. But the open layout of government buildings in Norway, reflecting of the relatively open nature of Norwegian society, meant that security is very low compared to anything most countries’ citizens are used to in this totalitarian age.
In response to the media’s leading questions about this being ‘Norway’s 9/11′, the Associated Press quoted a Norwegian police official as saying that the terror attack was more like the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing than the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center. It’s a curious comparison to make because, as Stephen Lendman explained in an interview he gave to Press TV, the Oklahoma bombing was blamed on a right-wing extremist and his huge car bomb, but the explosives evidence later pointed to something else entirely:

There have been numerous mass shootings in recent years, but the massacre on Utoya island is the worst yet. The camp on this tiny island, which lies just 700 meters from the shore, was organised by the AUF, the youth wing of the ruling Labour Party. In fact, the island was owned by this organisation; it has held regular summer camps there for decades and is well known to Norwegians. Most of the attendees were 14 to 19 year olds with an interest in politics attending seminars, partying, taking part in debates, playing music and listening to speeches on everything from local issues to international politics. In attacking the government’s headquarters in downtown Oslo and then the gathering place of the country’s political future, those responsible have managed to pierce the beating heart of Norwegian society.
The chief suspect, Anders Behring Breivik, may have been aware that former Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Bruntland was hosting a seminar at the camp that very day. He supposedly missed her by half an hour because he was held up in the heavy traffic trying to leave Oslo. Current Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg personally knew many of the victims, but then, as Norway has a small population, most Norwegians probably knew someone who had been directly affected.

At this stage, it seems pretty outlandish to me that just one person could be responsible for so much carnage. Breivik is supposed to have left downtown Oslo following the explosion and travelled 38 kms to an island in a fjord that is only accessible by boat. He arrived armed to the teeth and dressed as a police officer and began shooting people with an automatic rifle and a shotgun. Doctors have said that he was using dumdum bullets, expanding rounds designed to inflict the deadliest wounds possible on victims. Most of the bodies were horrifically mutilated in this manner. I’ve read one report that he actually removed the tip of every bullet he took with him and injected each with pure liquid nicotine in order to cause his victims as much pain as possible:

Dr Colin Poole, from Ringriket Hospital in Honefoss, north-west of Oslo, said: “Those on the dead brought in from the island are the worst I’ve ever seen. “They are very difficult to x-ray because the bullets just shatter everything into tiny pieces.”

Survivors’ accounts about how the shooting began conflict. On the one hand surviving teenagers have reported how he gathered people around him by saying that he wanted to question them in relation to the earlier bombing in the city. But then there is the testimony of 45-year-old Monica Bosei, who was known as the “mother of Utoya” and had worked at the camp for more than 20 years. She took the same boat to the island as Breivik. The UK’s Telegraph reports,

Because he was wearing a police uniform she approached him to talk about the bomb blast in Oslo but became suspicious by his evasive answers.
As soon as the boat docked she ran over to Mr Berntsen to alert him but Breivik realised that they had clocked him and shot them both immediately, Mrs Bosei, an accountant whose two daughters were also at the camp but survived, was his first victim.

Breivik’s second victim, Trond Berntsen, was an off-duty police officer assigned to security duty on the island. Brentsen was also a step-brother of Norway’s Crown Princess Mette-Marit. Here is 15-year-old Jo Granli Kallset’s account of the opening horror:

He said ‘I am the police, there is a boat at the corner of the island’. I replied ‘Hi, we’re here,’ and two seconds later he fired on a rock in front of me. I jumped into the water. It was horrible – we were hunted down. It was a massacre, everyone was dying around me. He came up to us, he was dressed like a policeman. He had all the equipment – the walkie-talkie, the arms, everything. I swam for about an hour, and when it was nearly over, I swam towards other people who had assembled as a group and we were helped by a boat. My girlfriend, myself and two others survived.

The earlier reports about a second shooter have disappeared. So have the earlier reports about there being at least two explosions in downtown Oslo that day. The enormous damage done to Oslo’s government buildings is neatly explained by Breivik’s farming enterprises, through which he supposedly acquired copious quantities of fertiliser – 6 tonnes, in fact. Bob Ayers, former US intelligence official, points out that this quantity of fertiliser “wouldn’t have fit in one car”. Maybe there were two cars? But that might require an accomplice, something the official narrative doesn’t seem prepared to countenance. Now it’s emerged that at least two other buildings were targets, but Breivik’s lawyer won’t say what “things happened that day to make things turn out differently.”

VG [Norwegian newspaper] has spoken to witnesses describing another culprit who was not wearing a police uniform.
This second person who was pursuing them was around 180 centimeters tall, had thick dark hair and looked Nordic. He had a pistol in his right hand and a rifle on his back.
“I believe that there were two people who shot at us,” says Alexander Stavdal, aged 23.

The sophisticated planning that went into this took into account that only one police helicopter – covering the whole length of the country apparently – would be available to respond. Explaining why the response was so slow, Oslo Chief of Police Johan Fredriksen told reporters that they were down to just one helicopter crew because everyone else was on holiday. In fact, the helicopter circling overhead while the shooting continued was a media helicopter, which had reached the island first and captured these gruesome images of Brevik surrounded by dead bodies floating in the lake and what looks like a teenaged boy pleading for mercy:
Breivik refused to plead guilty in court, instead laying the blame for the killings on the “treason” of Norway’s ruling Labour Party in sanctioning ‘Muslim immigration’. He further described the murder of 76 people as “an act of conscience”. No wonder the lawyer assigned to represent Breivik thinks that he’s completely insane. Geir Lippestad said he was “very cold, distanced from the real world and believing that he was a warrior destined to die for the eventual salvation of European Christian values. […] I can’t describe him because he’s not like anyone […] this whole case has indicated that he is insane.”
With three mass shootings leaving 29 dead in the US late last week also, was there something in the air at the time? Did Breivik act alone or did he have accomplices? Could he have actually carried this out alone? Could this guy (pictured below) have also been involved? He is an AUF member who was also on the island that day but his suspicious behaviour and possession of a knife led to his arrest back on the mainland.

On 24 July, two masked men in military uniform shot dead a 27-year-old man in his home in Sandnes, Norway. As Craig Murray points out, killings with firearms are rare in Norway, so what are the odds that this is not related to the events on 22 July?
What about the Polish man arrested in connection with the attacks? He’s supposed to have sold Breivik chemicals used to make his ‘homemade bomb’ and has since been charged with “crimes against public safety”. Once the Norwegian authorities have picked apart Breivik’s 1,500 page manifesto, they should have all the leads they need to track down who and how Breivik connected with in his dedicated planning for this attack. More on that later.
The initial claim of responsibility for the bombing(s) by yet another ‘previously unknown Islamic terror group’ – “Helpers of Global Jihad” – was followed up by headlines such as this from Rupert Murdoch’s The Sun:

They couldn’t have been any more wrong. The ‘Islamic terrorist attack’ reverted to being the work of a lone gunman, as these events often do, when it emerged that the perpetrator was a 32-year-old white middleclass Norwegian with extremely Islamophobic views. I mean, this guy is so right-wing that he was booted off Stormfront’s website. We’re being asked to believe that he spent a total of nine years preparing for these attacks and raised adequate funds all on his lonesome to fund his war plans. His deadly accurate sharp-shooter training is supposed to have come from playing World of Warcraft and other computer games, in between impressing fellow right-wingers with his lofty rhetoric about the pure morality of white Christian European values, defending Israel’s ‘right to exist’, and attending far-right rallies.
Breivik claims to have spent three years researching and writing a 1,500 page document titled “2083: A European Declaration of Independence”. Assuming for now that it is Breivik’s work, this book is a meticulously detailed, blow-by-blow account of precisely how he went about it and reveals as psychopathic an inner landscape as you’re ever likely to read by firsthand account. Based on a distinctly Israelite philosophy of ‘Hate Islam, Must Kill Muslims’, Breivik catalogues ‘Muslim crimes’, itemises every expense he had in the run-up to his ‘mission’, provides in-depth agricultural advice for growing produce, instructions on to procure weapons, uniforms and so on. Of course, nowhere does it explain why hating Islam entails killing left-leaning Norwegian teenagers, but I’ll get to that later.
In a section headed ‘Controversial principles’, Breivik writes,”Let us fight together with Israel, with our Zionist brothers against all anti-Zionists, against all cultural Marxists/multiculturalists.” Nevermind that the ‘multiculturalism’ they so deride, as extensively documented by Kevin MacDonald, is a product of Jewish intervention in Western society! Hmmm, maybe that is an important clue here…
Breivik wants hundreds of thousands of ‘traitors’ and ‘enablers’ (pretty much the whole intelligentsia of Europe in fact) to be executed for allowing Muslims to enter Europe, wants South Africa to be partitioned to make way for a new Boer/Afrikaner statelet, wants all Muslims deported from the West Bank and Gaza Strip, wants all Muslims deported from Europe… in fact, he wants Muslims everywhere to be deported back ‘whence they came’.

Breivik describes how he started a business, played the markets and used nine credit cards to fund the massacre. He didn’t just explain how he went about it; he recorded in excruciating detail how he procured the materials, built his bombs and staved off suspicions from neighbours, friends and local authorities. He closely studied all modern era revolutionary and militant movements, analysing what he saw as their flaws and successes. The book reads like a blueprint for engaging in terrorism and I’ve no doubt that Breivik, and whoever his handlers are, intend for others to pick up where he left off and run with it.
The book also served as Breivik’s journal in which he accounted for everything he did to prepare for the attack, from acquiring arms and fertiliser to machine parts and tailor-made badges he had embroidered on his uniforms. For such a puritan die-hard revolutionary in the name of a ‘Christian’ cause, his journal entries describing drink- and drug-fuelled benders and sex with prostitutes. Harvey Cleckley’s account of the psychopath’s need to take ‘vacations into filth’ comes to mind here. He apparently had plastic surgery done to his face in the US because he felt that he looked “too feminine” (which he blamed on being raised without a father.)

These Muslims must be considered as wild animals. Do not blame the wild animals but rather the multiculturalist category A and B traitors who allowed these animals to enter our lands.

He goes on to define category A, B and C ‘traitors’, and says that they would be executed under the future regime of him and his Christian soldiers. Breivik was methodical and devout in his belief that killing people is the right thing to do. He laid out a suggested study course for his imaginary army, complete with recommended reading and links to articles and speeches. There are eerie parallels with the Joel’s Army faction of the fascist Christian Dominionism movement in the US, with which Sarah Palin is closely affiliated.
At first glance it seems bizarre that today’s most extreme right-wing authoritarians (RWAs) are vociferously supportive of Israel. Historically, contempt of Jews, actual anti-Semitism, has been central to all brands of white racist ideology. RWAs seem to have been reprogrammed since (or by?) 9/11, when hatred of Muslims was sanctioned by the authorities and proactively disseminated through all available channels. All things Zionist have become ideals and role models for the far-right. I guess that like water finding its own level, those people whose underlying tendencies are oriented towards violence, ‘creative destruction’ and domination over others, will naturally wind up supporting and reinforcing each other.

This still from a BBC report on an EDL meeting in Amsterdam clearly shows the far-right’s identification with Zionism.

Those on the pathological spectrum, psychopaths in particular, but also RWAs in general, ‘recognise their own’. On a visit to Northern Ireland a few years ago, I saw Israeli and old Apartheid South African flags adorning the streets of British loyalist cantons. This is also why English Defence League members and Glasgow Rangers football club supporters wave Israeli flags at their gatherings. They identify with psychopathology in its most extreme manifestation. Their ideologies, supported by suitably revised propaganda material, allow them to project their woes and all the societal problems they see around them onto ‘the other’. Like Israelis, they believe they are the last line of defence of a racially and morally pure world, where the ‘old, true values’ retain their worth, surrounded by a sea of immorality – Muslims, Catholics, ‘Multiculturalists’ and so on.
I’d like to say that I can understand what motivates a psychopath like Breivik, but I really can’t. In preparing this article I found myself being drawn into this document he spent so long preparing. EDL members who have met Breivik or interacted with him online recall a ‘hypnotic‘ personality. It’s a nauseating read, so dark and unhinged from reality. Polish psychologist Andrej Lobaczewski wrote of schizoidal psychopathy in Political Ponerology:

During stable times which are ostensibly happy, albeit marked by injury to individuals and nations, doctrinaire people believe they have found a simple solution to fix such a world. Such a historical period is always characterized by an impoverished psychological world-view, a schizoidally impoverished psychological world-view thus does not stand out during such times and is accepted as legal tender. These doctrinaire individuals characteristically manifest a certain contempt with regard to moralists then preaching the need to rediscover lost human values and to develop a richer, more appropriate psychological world-view.
Schizoid characters aim to impose their own conceptual world upon other people or social groups, using relatively controlled pathological egotism and the exceptional tenacity derived from their persistent nature. They are thus eventually able to overpower another individual’s personality, which causes the latter’s behavior to turn desperately illogical. They may also exert a similar influence upon the group of people they have joined. They are psychological loners who feel better in some human organization, wherein they become zealots for some ideology, religious bigots, materialists, or adherents of an ideology with satanic features. If their activities consist of direct contact on a small social scale, their acquaintances easily perceive them to be eccentric, which limits their ponerogenic [evil-doing] role. However, if they manage to hide their own personality behind the written word, their influence may poison the minds of society in a wide scale and for a long time. […]
Character anomalies developing as a result of brain-tissue damage behave like insidious ponerogenetic factors. As a result of the above-described features, especially the above-mentioned naivete and an inability to comprehend the crux of a matter, their influence easily anchors in human minds, traumatizing our psyches, impoverishing and deforming our thoughts and feelings, and limiting individuals and societies’ ability to use common sense and to read a psychological or moral situation accurately. This opens the door to the influence of other pathological characters who most frequently carry some inherited psychological deviations [the big kahuna psychopaths in power]; they then push the characteropathic individuals [permanently damaged humans] into the shadows and proceed with their ponerogenetic work. […] An improved social system of the future should thus protect individuals and societies by preventing persons with the above deviations, or certain characteristics to be discussed below [inherited deviations], from any societal functions wherein the fate of other people would depend upon their behavior.

Revulsion is the normal, healthy response. But Breivik knows from his experiences with similarly oriented people that his material will ‘anchor’ in their minds. In fact, RWAs across Europe have already spoken out in support of his rabid Islamophobia, most notably a member of Berlusconi’s government in Italy:

Francesco Speroni, a leading member of the Northern League, the junior partner in Berlusconi’s conservative coalition, said: “Breivik’s ideas are in defence of western civilisation.”
Yesterday we reported that Mario Borghezi, another Northern League member and an Italian MEP, whose Freedom and Democracy group includes Ukip, had said, “One hundred per cent of Breivik’s ideas are good, in some cases extremely good. The positions of Breivik reflect the views of those movements across Europe which are winning elections.”

Breivik cited numerous well-known right-wing ‘conservative’ and pro-Zionist commentators, authors and bloggers in his screed. I’d like to think that at least some of them have done some soul-searching this past week, but then I remember that scores for introspection don’t rate too highly with RWAs. The horror of Breivik’s deeds certainly don’t seem to have affected him in any serious way, if this photo of him smirking as he left the courthouse in Oslo following his initial hearing is anything to go by:

There is little material evidence at this stage to suggest that this was anything more than the work of the deranged mind of one man. But the story doesn’t end there. Far-right extremists exist in every country and Breivik claims to have interacted with them. It doesn’t take long before you stumble across the involvement of intelligence agencies within these networks. Their role is ostensibly to monitor and infiltrate all extremist groups, from Breivik’s ‘Knights Templar’ and the EDL to al-Qaeda, but in reality, they co-opt and direct these groups towards the overarching agenda of the real instigators of revolution. These actors work by way of deception and so it’s only natural that we will not see their involvement at first glance. They remain in the shadows but if you pay attention a pattern emerges and their unmistakable thumbprints can be found wherever mayhem breaks out.
The last entry in the journal part of Breivik’s compendium is dated July 22 at 12.51. The document was sent to hundreds of far-right contacts and “7000 patriotic Facebook friends”, based mainly in England, at 14.08, less than an hour and a half before the bomb(s) went off in downtown Oslo, and from there was uploaded to file-sharing sites. This revived ‘Knights Templar’ organisation he claims to have been a founding member of, the PCCTS (Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Solomonici – Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon), met in London in 2002. He doesn’t reveal who exactly he met except to say that his mentor’s name was ‘Richard’:

Around year 2000 I realised that the democratic struggle against the Islamisation of Europe, European multiculturalism was lost. It had gone too far. It is simply not possible to compete democratically with regimes who import millions of voters. 40 years of dialogue with the cultural Marxists/multiculturalists had ended up as a disaster. It would now only take 50-70 years before we, the Europeans are in a minority. As soon as I realised this I decided to explore alternative forms of opposition. Protesting is saying that you disagree. Resistance is saying you will put a stop to this. I decided I wanted to join the resistance movement.
However, the main problem then was that there weren’t any alternatives for me at all. There weren’t any known armed cultural conservative, or Christian, anti-Jihad movements.
An NS or racist/anti Jewish movement was completely out of the question, as they represented much of what I oppose. I came in contact with Serbian cultural conservatives through the internet. This initial contact would eventually result in my contact with several key individuals all over Europe and the forming of the group who would later establish the military order and tribunal, PCCTS, Knights Templar. I remember they did a complete screening and background check to ensure I was of the desired calibre. Two of them had reservations against inviting me due to my young age but the leader of the group insisted on my candidature. According to one of them, they were considering several hundred individuals throughout Europe for a training course. I met with them for the first time in London and later on two occasions in Balticum. I had the privilege of meeting one of the greatest living war heroes of Europe at the time, a Serbian crusader and war hero who had killed many Muslims in battle. Due to EU persecution for alleged crimes against Muslims he was living at one point in Liberia. I visited him in Monrovia once, just before the founding session in London, 2002.
I was the youngest one there, 23 years old at the time. One of the key founders instructed the rest of the group about several topics related to the goal of the organisation. I believe I scribbled down more than 50 full pages of notes regarding all possible related topics. Much of these notes are forwarded in the book 2083. It was basically a detailed long term plan on how to seize power in Western Europe. I did not fully comprehend at the time how privileged I was to be in the company of some of the most brilliant political and military tacticians of Europe. Some of us were unfamiliar with each other beforehand so I guess we all took a high risk meeting face to face. There were only 5 people in London re-founding the order and tribunal (1 by proxy) but there were around 25-30 attending in Balticum during the two sessions, individuals from all over Europe; Germany, France, Sweden, the UK, Denmark, Balticum, Benelux, Spain, Italy, Greece, Hungary, Austria, Armenia, Lebanon and Russia. Electronic or telephonic communication was completely prohibited, before, during and after the meetings. On our last meeting it was emphasised clearly that we cut off contact indefinitely. Any type of contact with other cells was strictly prohibited.
This was not sessions where regular combat cells were created. It was more like a training course for pioneer cell commanders. We were not instructed to attack specific targets, quite the opposite. We were encouraged to rather use the information distributed to contribute to build and expand the so called “cultural conservative anti-Jihad movement, either through spreading propaganda, provide funding for the creation of new groups through various forums or by recruiting other people directly. All individuals attending the sessions learned about PCCTS, the Knights Templar but they were not specifically instructed to represent that particular order and tribunal. Everyone was encouraged but at the end, it was their own decision how they decided to manifest their resistance. A special emphasis was put on the long term nature of the struggle (50-100 years). Our task was to contribute to a long term approach and not to act prematurely. If there was a large scale attack the next 10 years it was said, we should avoid any immediate follow up attacks as it would negate the shock effect of the subsequent attacks. A large successful attack every 5-12 years was optimal depending on available forces.
This was not a stereotypical “right wing” meeting full of underprivileged racist skinheads with a short temper, but quite the opposite. Most of them were successful entrepreneurs, business or political leaders, some with families, most of them Christian conservatives but also some agnostics and even atheists. I remember it struck me how impressed I was regarding how they had set up the screening parameters (for accepting new candidates). They obviously wanted resourceful pragmatical individuals who were able to keep information away from their loved ones and who were not in any way flagged by their governments. Every one of them was supportive of a Judeo Christian Europe and did not have any reservations against cooperating with non-European Christians Hindu or Buddhist nationalists. I had or have a relatively close relationship with at least one of them, an Englishman, who became my mentor. He was the one who first described the “perfect knight” and had written the initial fundament for this compendium. I was asked, not only once but twice, by my mentor; let’s call him Richard, to write a second edition of his compendium about the new European Knighthood. As such, I spent several years to create an economic platform which would allow me to study and write a second edition. And as of now, I have spent more than three years completing this second edition. Perhaps, someone out there will be able to contribute by creating a third edition one day.

Later on in this ‘compendium’, Breivik returns to the origins of this primary ponerogenic association and strongly hints that one of the most racist bands of brownshirts operating freely in the EU today, the English Defence League (EDL), shares foundations with his masonic sect:

I wonder sometimes if one of the EDL founders was one of the co-founders of PCCTS, I guess I’ll never know for sure. EDL is a non-violent protest organisation though but I noticed they have copied a lot from the PCCTS. Then again, it is most likely just a coincidence. I do think a lot about what happened to some of the co-founders. It’s pointless to speculate I guess but I check the news regularly to see if anything has slipped through the media blackout relating to actions launched by individual resistance fighters or the European Resistance Organisations. I may or may not have had contact with at least 2 of these co-founders since the founding. Obviously, I can’t reveal any sensitive information so the above characteristic might be what I want you to believe and not the actual truth:-).

The EDL have naturally distanced themselves from Breivik’s actions, but Breivik’s hints that the meteoric rise of this fascist Islamophobic organisation may have grown out of the same deeper network as his crusader brigade are revealing in light of what we know about the involvement of British agents co-opting and directing other protest movements in the UK. I rather suspect that in this case we’re looking at something that was created as a front to serve both British, American and Israeli intelligence to begin with:

Breivik continues:

I used to have more than 600 EDL members as Facebook friends and have spoken with tens of EDL members and leaders. In fact; I was one of the individuals who supplied them with processed ideological material (including rhetorical strategies) in the very beginning. The EDL are in fact anti-racist, anti-fascist and anti-Nazi. They even have many members and leaders with non-European background (African and Asian). They have worked so hard, and continue to work hard, to keep National Socialists out of the organization, but yet they are strategically labeled as racist-fascist-Nazi-monsters by the multiculturalist authorities. The EDL, although having noble intentions are in fact dangerously naïve. EDL and KT [‘PCCTS/Knights Templar’] principles can never be reconciled as we are miles apart ideologically AND organizationally. The EDL even rejects taking a stand against multiculturalism which proves that they are even more naïve than Sarkozy, Merkel and Cameron who have all admitted that multiculturalism has been a failure and a disaster for Europe.

This ‘Declaration of Independence’ goes on and on like this for hundreds of pages. Such fine distinctions pointing out ideological differences between his own views, the EDL’s views and mainstream fascists’ views can’t blur the fact that they all draw their ‘anti-multiculturalist’ and Islamophobic stances from the anti-Muslim climate of fear and hysteria that has gripped the Western world since 9/11. It’s founded on the ludicrous fantasy that Muslims are taking over Europe and the US, raping and pillaging their way towards colonising the ‘free world’, all the while the US and EU governments bomb and invade more and more Muslim countries, steal their resources and institute draconian legislation which curtails civil liberties back home. Just as the powers-that-be at the time of Weimar Germany sought to convince Germans that the root of all evil lay in Jews, today we have the powers-that-be trying to convince the entire Western world that the root of all evil lies in Muslims.

KT was formed back in 2002 as a revolutionary conservative movement because we had lost hope that the democratic framework can solve Europe’s current problems. The EDL, on the other hand, IS a democratic movement. They STILL believe that the democratic system can solve Britain’s problems… This is why the EDL harshly condemns any and all revolutionary conservative movements that employ terror as a tool, such as the KT. And this is why, we, the KT view the EDL as naïve fools, wasting all their energy monkey-screaming to deaf ears while they should instead have focused on means and methods that are meaningful in regards to achieving true political change, in regards to tearing down the multiculturalist regime known as Britain. Unfortunately, the only meaningful resistance at this point in time is to use military force. So instead of monkey-screaming, they should instead focus on strategically demolishing one of the many British nuclear power plants, which effectively would completely cripple the British economy, contributing to creating an optimal climate for significant political change.

Once again, we see that Breivik’s thoughts display uncanny resemblance to the strategic thinking of Western intelligence agencies, who do precisely this: engineer terror attacks to “create an optimal climate for significant change.” Another reason for suspecting that Breivik probably did not act alone, or at the very least was being handled by his “mentor(s)”, is his constant references to other operational ‘cells’ in his organisation. Check out this entry for March 1st 2011:

Economic status (as of March 1st)
I decided to sell my dear Breitling Crosswind and my Montblanc Meisterstück pen in January in order to strengthen my operational budget. I was able to sell my Crosswind for 1800 Euro and my pen for 200 Euro.
My remaining budget is now:
In bank: 3750 Euro
In cash: 3750 Euro
Value of car: 4500 Euro
Credit (9 credit cards): 28 750 Euro
Logistical plans ahead (as of March 1st)
I will shortly convert the public listing/definition of my company from regular to agricultural. This will allow me to acquire (rent) and register a farm with accompanying fields. The fields, registered through my company, will give me a specific “farming ID number” which is a requirement for ordering large amounts of fertilizer from the national supplier.
The cover I am using is; test production of sugar beet. I have created a 10 page “business plan” for this purpose, and have familiarized myself with the related terminology. As such, I am soon ready to place “rent adds” in agricultural newspapers, with intent to rent the farm/fields.
As soon as I rent the farm; I plan to move all my equipment to the farm house and initiate the “explosive manufacturing phase”. The operation will be executed shortly after the manufacturing phase is completed. Will attempt to initiate contact with cell 8b and 8c in late March.
Remaining items/components to buy;
– Plastic sheeting: 30 Euro
– Alu/wood ramp for loading/unloading truck: 30 Euro
– Fertilizer – large 500 kg bag: 1 x CAN, 1 x N34, 1 x 0-5-17 (for show), repeat after a couple of weeks: 2000 Euro
– Sementmixer – rent or buy: 100 Euro
– Ethanol 96%, x 6L: 30 Euro
– Blue Police – flashing LED light – for one of the trucks: 150 Euro
– Face – splash proof face mask: 30 Euro
– Fork jack – for 600 kg sacks: 200 Euro
– Plastic base for 600 kg sacks (used with above): 200 Euro
– Refrigerator: 100 Euro)
– Freezer: 100 Euro)
– Fume hood: 1000 Euro, not yet decided
– Microballoons, 20 kg
– Glock 17: 700 Euro
– More ammo: 1000 Euro
– Dunnage air-bag for transport load securing (centerload.com), bought from Ebay: 100 Euro
– Straps/net for securing large load in truck, may use alu/metal profiles with screws to support

Breivik really believes that an army will rise up to replace him, so his document lays out exactly which types of uniforms future members of his PCCTS organisation should buy for which occasion, which badges to wear and which materials they should be made from. He includes mock speeches his followers should give in court when caught. He explains exactly how he developed two key chemicals used in his explosives – picric acid and DDNP – before concluding that,

there is absolutely NO GOOD REASON why anyone (unless flagged by the intelligence agency) shouldn’t be able to acquire the above materials and gear WITHOUT detection. The only thing that is holding you back is unfounded fear or laziness! Your fear for detection cannot be justified, unless you have an Islamic name<3

He signed the document as follows:

Andrew Berwick, code name “Sigurd (the Crusader)” [after Sigurd Jorsalfare, the 12th century Norwegian king] – Justiciar Knight Commander for Knights Templar Europe and one of several leaders of the National and pan-European Patriotic Resistance Movement
With the assistance from brothers and sisters in England, France, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Italy, Spain, Finland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, the US etc.


On several occasions, according to his journal, he suspected that authorities unknown were on to him because he was being tailed and watched. Despite this, he manages to succeed with his mission. Since the attacks, the Norwegian police have said that they were taken completely by surprise; they had no idea who he was and he was on no watch-list. Yet the police anti-terrorist unit apparently called out his name when they landed on the island. On pointing out this contradiction, journalists were told that police had managed to identify Breivik from CCTV footage of him at the scene of the ‘car bomb’. But the main point to be made here is that he absolutely was well-known to somebody high up the chain of command. British intelligence is known to have tracked the deadly car bomb into position during the worst terrorist atrocity in Omagh, Northern Ireland. The blast was blamed on the ‘Real IRA’, but it has since emerged that MI5 knew exactly what was in the car and did nothing to intervene.
All around, Breivik seemed to know an awful lot about how the system works, both within Norway and in general. He had particular expertise in military strategy, specialised military training, military intelligence, how to conduct special operations, and so on. He did not pick this up from playing World of Warcraft alone in his bedroom. I’m leaning towards the idea that this secret society he imagines himself to be a part of is largely a figment of his imagination, carefully fed to him by a combination of handlers, mind control techniques and the psychopath’s extreme tendency towards wishful thinking. That’s not to say that there are no other ‘cells’ across Europe and the US in the way Breivik describes. But rather than being networked together through some grand lodge of holy jesus crusaders, they’re basically just names on a database which the powers-that-be can draw on, manipulate into position, then ‘turn on’. Just as ‘al Qaeda’ is.
Whether or not we find explicit state-sponsorship behind these horrific terror attacks remains to be seen. In the meantime, we can say with some certainty that both ideologically and energetically, Breivik and others behind this are joined on the spiritual front by a whole host of evil. I reckon those initial media reports saying that this was the work of ‘Islamic terrorists’ revealed the first signature of the true instigators. Joe Quinn highlights another ‘signature’:

The attacks in Oslo and Utoya island came 65 years, to the day, after the original Zionist terror group Irgun, bombed the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. While all the other details strongly suggest an Israeli hand behind this particular act of inhumanity, perhaps the timing is the real Israeli ‘signature’. The bombing of the Kind David hotel was an attempt by Zionist terrorists to prevent foreign intervention in their plans for covert global domination. The attacks in Oslo and Utoya island fit the same profile.

The timing of this terrorist attack is dead interesting in light of the Norwegian government’s ongoing meetings with Palestinian leaders and the anticipated Norwegian recognition of Palestinian statehood. Norway’s Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store was to welcome Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on July 25 to show that Norway was ready to recognise a Palestinian state and to sign an agreement that would upgrade the Palestinians’ representative in Norway to ambassadorial status. Iceland’s intention to recognise a Palestinian state means it had better be on the lookout too. The day before the shootings, Store visited the Labour Youth Camp on Utoya island and was greeted by banners urging a boycott of Israel and the immediate recognition of a Palestinian state. Norwegian press report that he told the youngsters:

“The Palestinians must have their own state, the occupation must end, the wall must be demolished and it must happen now,” said the Foreign Minister to cheers from the audience. “We are ready to recognize a Palestinian state. I await the actual resolution text Palestinians will promote the UN General Assembly in September.”

Author and musician Gilad Atzmon found another ‘signature’:

Just one day before last Friday’s massacre in Norway, US NeoConservative David Horowitz carried an article by Joseph Klein in his Front Page magazine, entitled “The Quislings of Norway,” which might as well have provided mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik with all the motivation he needed to commit his crime.

Klein wrote a scathing article about Norway’s support for Palestinian statehood and its unilateral moves towards complete divestment of Israeli companies. Wayne Madsen highlights other clues:

In a move that complements American and Israeli propaganda that Norway has not stepped up to the surveillance state model imposed by other Western governments, the suspicious WikiLeaks decided to release U.S. State Department cables from the U.S. embassy in Oslo that criticized Norway for not recognizing the “Al Qaeda” threat and maintaining an insufficient security apparatus to combat Islamist terrorism and Pakistani immigrants. […]
Last November, the Norwegian government was shocked to learn that the U.S. embassy was operating a Surveillance Detection Unit in Oslo that was monitoring Norwegian citizens. […] Just 48 hours before the bombing in Oslo, police units were engaged in a terrorist bombing exercise at the Oslo Opera House, near what would later be “ground zero.” In addition, in the days before the terrorist bombing, there was suspicious sewer work being conducted in the area near the Prime Minister’s office.

On 28 July, the Norwegian government announced that it is dropping its investigation into the illegal surveillance of Norwegian citizens by the US embassy in Oslo. They’ve decided not to file charges against the US and its embassy personnel, claiming that “they lacked evidence that any laws had in fact been broken.” Yeah, right. This caused uproar in Norway when the scandal broke because it was so blatantly illegal. But it looks like the Stoltenberg government has got the message and will now look the other way while the CIA and friends get on with their thing.

Mourning roses cast by sympathizers float in the lake near the island of Utoya, Norway, Sunday, July 24, 2011.

Another Oslo embassy cable highlighted US displeasure at Norway’s reluctance to play ball in their War of Terror™: US ambassador to Norway Barry White, who is Jewish and received a 2005 award from the pro-Israel American Jewish Committee, complained that the Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) rejected two twelve-person British MI6 intelligence surveillance teams to monitor an ‘al Qaeda cell’ in Norway. Given the British and American intelligence agencies’ endeavours to proactively set up ‘al Qaeda cells’ in their own countries and to ‘find’ al Qaeda cells in other countries (usually by torturing confessions out of them), I can’t help but wonder if the Norwegian government said “thanks, but no thanks”, thus sending the message that it knows too well that the ‘War on Terror’ is bogus. That will not do, of course. Remember what Dubya said? “You’re either with us or you’re against us.” Now consider Obama’s statement following the attacks:

“It’s a reminder that the entire international community has a stake in preventing this kind of terror from occurring, and that we have to work co-operatively together both on intelligence and in terms of prevention of these kinds of horrible attacks.”

See Norway, you work with us, then this won’t happen again, ok? New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key, who was on a state visit to Washington, DC, added:

“If it is an act of global terrorism I think it shows that no country, large or small, is immune from that risk, and that is why New Zealand plays its part in Afghanistan as we try and join others like the United States in making the world a safer place.”

Right. And what does this have to do with the fact that the killer was a lone-nut Norwegian ‘Christian’? Nothing, according to the official narrative. But if we read between the lines here, it reads like a not-so-subtle hint to the Norwegian government that its plans to pull out of the slaughterfest in Libya are considered disobedient. Now John Key is a man who knows what side his bread is buttered on. He recently ensured the correct conclusions were reached in an investigation into the actions of suspected Mossad agents in Christchurch on the day of the devastating earthquake in February.

Norway is one of the few remaining socialist countries on the planet. I realise that this may be misunderstood by many, so let’s frame it in this way: by socialist, I mean that the Norwegian population’s self-organisation is largely governed by adherence to the humane principles of justice, equality and freedom – in the original meaning of those words, not the new meanings that have been inserted by the psychopaths which dominate international institutions and nearly all governments. The country has a very high standard of living compared with other European countries and a strongly integrated welfare system. It remains outside of EU control, is self-sufficient in terms of energy resources and most raw materials, and positions itself as a broker of peace in the international arena. Their security services are few in number and police the streets unarmed. Their central banker can wander to the store to pick up some groceries without having to watch his back because he placed ordinary Norwegians under the international banking cartel’s control of debt.
This event has shown that Norway is susceptible to the ponerogenic influence of pathological factors like everywhere else, yet it seems to me that the rule of normal man still retains its power in Norway to a far greater extent than most countries, particularly those in the West which are beholden to the Zionist agenda for world revolution and global domination. I should also explain here what I understand by ‘Zionism’. I’m not just talking about the Israeli state’s regional imperialism in the Middle East. I’m thinking more along the lines of what Douglas Reed described in The Controversy of Zion. Not a world controlled by Jews – far from it. Rather, an ‘ideology’ that is so attractive to psychological deviants of every stripe in every country and culture because it thinly veils that which anchors in the minds of all the Breiviks out there, an insatiable thirst for power and domination over others, something that is so alien to humanity.
Zionism is the ideology of psychopaths, their clarion call to fulfilling what they see as their rightful place as the Master Race. Participatory democracy, as Norwegians teach and live it, is humanitarian, inclusive and just. In this lies the true ‘clash of civilizations’. It is not about one race or one religion against another. It is a clash of ideologies which by and large orbit around two poles of existence. Zionism currently has the upper hand in this battle because it can draw on resources – knowledge in particular – which expand way above and beyond even the riches of Norway. There won’t be a level playing field upon which we can defend humanity from these attacks until we inoculate ourselves with the knowledge that will give us awareness of the true nature of the beast.

Zionist Crime Boss Shot to Death

Local Editor
Francois Abutbul, alleged to be one of Zionist top organized crime bosses, was gunned down overnight by unknown assailants, Israeli police said on Sunday.
Abutbul “was killed in his car at a service station,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
Local media reported that two assailants riding motorbikes, their faces covered by helmets, opened fire on Abutbul at a gaz station near Netanya, north of Tel Aviv, hitting him in his upper body and lightly wounding his bodyguard.
They fired at least 10 bullets at the 40-year-old, who was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital shortly afterwards, reports said.
Abutbul, freed from prison just last year after spending two years behind bars for assaulting his wife, is believed to have succeeded his brother Asi at the head of one of Zionist major criminal gangs in 2009.
He assumed the leadership post when Asi was sentenced to 13 years in jail for his role in leading a “criminal organization.”
The Zionist entity has seen competition between rival criminal gangs ramp up in recent years, resulting in increased violence that has prompted police to form a special task force, “Unit 443,” to tackle the growing problem.
Abutbul’s father, Felix, was murdered in August 2002 at the entrance to his casino in Prague.
Abutbul was released from prison in December 2010 after serving a sentence for abusing his wife. He was arrested this past January for suspicion of the attempted murder of crime boss Rico Shirazi, but was later released due to lack of evidence.

Gilad Atzmon: De-Zionification Now

“It (immigration) was a politically motivated attempt by ministers to transform the fundamental make-up and identity of this country (Britain). It was done to destroy the right of the British people to live in a society defined by a common history, religion, law, language and traditions.”

(Melanie Phillips, as quoted by mass murderer, Anders Breivik, in his manifesto)
Melanie Philips, a rabid Zionist and the author of “Londonistan: How Britain is Creating a Terror State Within” is not happy to be singled out by Andres Breivik in his 1500 pages manuscript. Are they suggesting that “my writing provoked the mass murder of some 93 Norwegians?” she wonders righteously on her blog. I guess that Phillips knows the answer, as much as she knows how to play with words. But I will use this opportunity to reiterate it for her, and for the rest of us — there certainly is a clear and strong resemblance between Breivik’s views and Philips’ writing. The most obvious and immediate comparison is that both oppose Islamic immigration and multiculturalism of course, but it goes much further in that both identify the enemy within the ‘left political circuit’.

Breivik cites Philips’ take on Labour’s immigration policy: “It was done to destroy for ever what it means to be culturally British and to put another ‘multicultural’ identity in its place.”

I should clearly state here that I do not think that Philips provoked Breivik’s murderous inclination. I also believe that Phillips is fully entitled to express her thoughts and ideas. Yet, it is surely reasonable to suspect that Phillips , amongst others, might have contributed to inspiring Breivik, ideologically and spiritually.

Though Phillips writes on her blog that the “the forces of spite, malice and venom (within liberal media) have been unleashed in a terrifying display of irrationality,” it is obvious that it is completely rational to elaborate on the significant resemblance between Phillips’ and Breivik’s ideas.

Jewish media outlets in Israel and around the world are already aware of the deeply worrying fact that Breivik was inspired by right wing ideologies associated with Israel and Zionism. The JTA (The Global News Service Of The Jewish People) was quick to admit that numerous online postings, including Breivik’s, attack a “mishmash of anti-modern principles” that call for “the deportation of all Muslims from Europe as well as from the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.” Whether we like it or not, this ‘mishmash’ of ‘global Islamophobia’ and Israeli expansionism is the true face of contemporary Zionism and Israeli ideology.

And yet, there is a further central question that no one in the media has addressed yet: how is it that Melanie Philips is getting away with openly promoting vile Islamophobia in our midst ? How is it that she and other Zionists prevail ,exactly where the EDL and the BNP fail? Why is Melanie Phillips a celebrity, whilst the BNP’s Nick Griffin is regarded as a vile racist, and a social outcast? Similarly, I find myself wondering what on earth the board of ‘progressive’ Guardian editors had in mind when they nominated the Zionist, pro-war and openly Islamohopbic Harry’s Place as one of their favourite political blogs in 2005 – bear in mind that The Guardian’s nomination was made at more or less the same time that the very same Harry’s Place blog won the ‘Annual Islamophobia Awards 2006,’ within the UK section of the Islamic Human Rights Commission’s ‘Annual Islamophobia Awards.’

I believe that the answer is devastating: within our so called, liberal democratic, allegedly ‘tolerant’ discourse – it is only right wing Jews who are entitled and allowed to spread xenophobia and hatred.
This is hardly surprising, because unlike contemporary Westerners, who seem to be more than confused by their colonial heritage and notions such as nationalism, racism, expansionism, biological determinism, religion, and self-loving, Israel and Zionism actually celebrate all of these symptoms, in the open. It is far from surprising then, to see Israeli flags and Jewish symbols popping up in many far right gatherings in the UK and in other European countries, because Israel, it seems, makes racism look kosher.

The shocking ideological resemblance of the thoughts and ideals of the fearsome mass murderer Breivik and mainstream Zionist advocates such Melanie Phillips, Daniel Pipes, David Horowitz, and Harry’s Place should surely be a bright red alert for any sensible humanist. If we want to save our society from being dragged into a violence with no end, we must de-Zionise every possible aspect of our culture, media and political institutions.

Media sources reveal details of conspiracy to "destroy" Syria

Media sources reveal details of a conspiracy by Bandar Bin Sultan and Feltman to "destroy" Syria

Several media sources have revealed the details of a “well-organized” plan to destroy Syria and create chaos in the country. The plan is said to be drawn up by Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador to the United States, in collaboration with the former U.S. Ambassador in Lebanon, “Jeffrey Feltman” to overthrow the regime in Syria and to bring Syria back to the “stone age”, according to the sources.
The lengthy and detailed plan, developed by Bandar bin Sultan and his friend Feltman in 2008 with a funding reached $ 2 billion, consists of many items and precise details which significantly intersect with the incidents of disturbances the city of Daraa has recently witnessed.

According to sources, the plan “strategically” depended on the exploitation of peoples’ legitimate desire in freedom, dignity and getting rid of corruption and on the turning of these wishes into a revolt against the regime through convincing the people that the road to reform from within the regime is closed and the solution is an all-out revolution.
However, the plan tactically divided Syria into three areas (big cities, small cities and villages), and the established five types of networks:
1- The “Fuel”: This network comprises educated and unemployed youths who are to be linked in a decentralized way.
2- The “Thugs” network which includes outlaws and criminals from remote areas, preferably non-Syrians.
3- The “Ethnic-Sectarian” network which consists of young people with limited education representing ethnic communities that support or oppose the president. They must be under the age of 22.
4- The “Media” network that comprises some leaders of civil society institutions which have European funding not American one.
5- The “Capital” network which comprises traders, companies owners, banks and commercial centers in Damascus, Aleppo and Homs only.
On how to use these networks and link between each others, the plan provides for:
The utilization of ambitious young people from the first network (Network of fuel) through attractive phrases such as:
– You must have a voice
– Change can’t be achieved except by force
– Your future is yours to determine
– Your silence is the cause, and so on ….

The plan also provides for exploiting the skills of members of the second network (Network of thugs) through:

– Training the thugs on professional killing including sniping and murdering in cold blood.
– Training them on burning public buildings quickly by using flammable substance.
– Training thugs on penetrating prisons police centers and security buildings.
According to the plan, members of the third network (sectarian ethnic netwrok) will be exploited by
– Feeding their strong feeling of support for or opposition against the President.
– Making them feel that their communities are threatened in all cases.
– Creating the concept of using excessive force against others.
– Convincing them of the idea that all who oppose them in anything are traitors.
– Leading them to a “state of color blindness”, so see only black and white.
-Exploitation their age and lack of knowledge of history and geography and leading them to the brink of being ready to do anything.
The fourth network (media network) will also be exploited to serve the plan. Members of this network will be recruited and their skills will be enhanced to lead the (public opinion) through:
– Enabling them to communicate with the media by satellite phone that can’t be monitored or cut off.
– Promoting them as nationalists and as individuals who don’t oppose to the regime, but call for civil society.
– Qualifying cadres and training them on techniques of modern media such as blogging and using the Internet which help them communicate with the public.
– Holding regular meetings with them and coordinating their efforts so that no one will contradict the other.
The fifth network (capital network) will be exploited by using their fear of their money being wasted, so the following must be achieved:
– Linking traders with trade officials in the European embassies under the cover of trade relations.
– Holding luxurious parties to be attended by businessmen and during which exclusively Arab Gulf deals and investments are to be made.
– Threatening them with certain sexual relations that are filmed for later blackmailing them.
– Urging them against the regime and creating ideas such as: “The country is yours and outsiders control you. The regime makes wealthy people on your expense. You are the ones who build the country and others rule it. Bashar al-Assad steals you via taxes and his supporters enjoy it. All your businesses projects are a loss due to bribery and corruption. Your wealth is threatened and must be transferred outside Syria because the regime will collapse. We will make you rule the country after the collapse of the regime. “
The plan also contained in its “executive” chapter several scenarios, and precise details of how to start and move, how networks will be exploited and how to move forward.

According to executive chapter, the plan adopts the following stages:
1- If a targeted person from the Fuel Network responded, another stage will immediately begin based on exploiting his/her need for money, so the plan starts to:
– Provide him/her with small amounts of money.
– Ensure him/her a rented car, a cellular phone and Internet connection.
– Ask him/her to look for and bring other young people and use the same method with them.
– When the number of young people reach 5000 in major cities and 1500 in small cities and 500 in the villages, these people are asked to start to express their desire in change and reform. At this very stage any talk against any side of the people must be avoided. Not a word on sectarian, partisan, rightist or leftist basis is allowed at this stage.
As this stage proceeds, objections by non-enthusiasts are to be faced by a set of appropriate responses such as:
– If someone says there is a change, the response must be: “There is no change at all. This is all a lie”
– If he says change is coming, then the response must be: “We have heard this for more than 40 years”
– If anyone says that time is not suitable, the response must be: “So when must we move. Are we going to move after 100 years”
– If one says that of our dignity lies in resisting America, the response must be: “We have nothing to do with resistance, we want to live” and so on…
– A Moving group has to be pushed into streets inside already existing gatherings such as in crowded markets, in mosques after prayers and in narrow alleys. This group is divided into three rings: The shouters, the photographers, and the hidden people. The shouters gather at the center of the circle and begin chanting within the gathering. This ring is surrounded by the ring of the hidden people, while the photographers’ ring surrounds all. If anyone tried to disperse the shouters the hidden people defend them under the pretext: ” let them speak”, and if no one try to disperse them, the same ring of the hidden people assaults the shouters and disperse them. In both cases,” We get an excellent picture for the media.”
– In general, the authorities have to be provoked to be drawn into the use of torture and cruelty. Here the authorities have to choose one of two solutions; either to intervene or not to intervene.
– If the authorities don’t interfere, the number of enthusiasts will begin to increase, because young people’s demands will attract a bigger number of new enthusiasts who all, according to the plan, must not know anything about the network link.
– If the authorities intervene and arrest one of the network members, he/she must make himself/herself appear “innocent and pathetic”, immediately change his/her stance and illusively promise the authorities not to do that again. According to the plan he/she is to be completely frozen to the final stage, but funding continues.
– If the authorities intervene and arrest one from outside the network, the incident must fully be exploited by raising the level of demands. If the security forces torture him/her, this will be better as it will help in fueling the people’s feelings and here phrases linking torture to the whole regime not only to the security forces are to be promoted and the following statements and ideas are to be disseminated: “Have you seen what happened to the poor man, this is what the president wants. It isn’t fair, the man wants only to live. Do those traders only have the right to have money. Is it a government or a group of thieves. The reason behind this is the top leadership”, and so on …
2- When moves start in the streets, people must be instigated as fast as possible to change their just demands into calls for the downfall of the regime. Here the following must be implemented:
– The second network, “network of the thugs”, is introduced to the scene immediately to attack all of the demonstrators and security personnel.
– Videos and photos for dramatic events which hurt religious and social feelings, such as attacking women, preferably veiled ones, must be taken. As a result alleged demonstrators shout general slogans and if they are attacked by security forces it will be very excellent. But if they are attacked by civilians, the group says “security forces dressed in civilian clothes,” attacked the demonstrators. However, if no one attack them, a member of the same group will attack the demonstrators, even if this leads to minor injuries. Video shots must not last more than 20 seconds and they must be taken from a very close position not from a far one.
– The rapid use of bloodshed, because of its significant impact on the people. This includes the killing of a protester from outside the network, preferably a youth from big and famous families, or a youth who has major social ties or a highly educated person, especially a doctor, an engineer or an intellectual. The killing must be committed rapidly by snipers and with bullets of the same type used by police or security forces. This stage also includes the killing of security personnel or guarding police.
– Burning properties of the traders who have been involved in the plan and dragging them into a state of fear together with other economic figures with the purpose of having influence on the lives of as many people as possible.
– Provoking Bashar al-Assad loyalists and engaging them in polemics with others, especially the Islamists,. Here the loyalist are to be accused of being from the intelligence and that they are horns of the regime and beneficiaries from the authority.
Creating mistrust and tension between the loyalists and the people, telling about the near end of Bashar al-Assad and calling for random supportive demonstrations and calls advocating slaughter, murder and terrorism are planned to be launched. In turn, opponents keep calm and delay any move till after the creation of sectarian and ethnic killing. They have to be well-organized in their calls for political reform, freedom, democracy and civil life.
– Foiling any attempt to attain political solutions by the regime through burning symbols of power such as the Baath Party headquarters, police stations, prisons and security forces centers in addition to distorting Bashar al-Assad pictures.

3- The fourth network (The media) is introduced. The aim here is to link Bashar al-Assad to all previous era and to devalue all his actions by opening all the old files and holding the current regime responsible for them.
Bandar bin Sultan recognizes in his plan that Bashar Assad enjoys a real popularity inside and outside Syria that should not be underestimated. He believes that this popularity must be exploited and transformed from a point of strength into a point of weakness through the use of the enthusiasm of supporters against demonstrations.
To undermine the military, the government and the security system, Bandar believes that they must be torn into sects, and here comes the role of the third network the ( “ethnic-sectarian” network) taking into account the neutralization of major doctrines like the Shafi’I and the Hanafi. This will be done as follows:
– Urging each sect to commit horrible bloody massacres against violators. These crimes must be filmed and posted to the media as soon as possible. The start should be in places far from Damascus and there should not be a lot of blood for fear that people may retreat.
For instance, in Lattakia and Tartous, people from the Alawite sect from the network slaughter youths from the Sunni sect, cut parts of their bodies chant long live Bashar.
In Aleppo, Salafis from the network attack Alawites’ villages, burn their homes and terrorizing the people to leave their villages and chant “Death to the “Nasirien” death to the enemies of the Sahaba”.
In Hasakah, Arabs from the network slaughter and hang some young people and make fun of the Kurds in a visual way without language and clear enough to be understood by the Kurds without translation. Some Christians, particularly Armenians are planned to be killed.
In Daraa, “snipers” from outside the city of Daraa kill young people from the Jawabra and the Mahamid families without approaching anyone from the Abazeed and the Masalmeh families.
In the city of Al-Boukamal, the Shi’ites kill Sunnis and scream, “Oh Karbala, Oh Hussein”.
In Homs, Arabs kill Turkmen and loot their shops, particularly gold shops and also kill Catholic Christians and Murshdis.
In Sewidaa, Druze members of the network kill a number of Christians in surrounding villages and burning several churches
In Qamishli, Kurd members of the network avenge the killing of Kurds in Hasaka. Some Armenians also kill Arab Muslims.
In Deir Ez-Zour, “snipers” from outside the city kill young people from the Agidat and Bani Naeem tribes without approaching smaller tribes like the “Rolla”, the “Jabour” or the “Shummar” and scream during the filming in the name of the “Bokhabour and the “Mohassan”.
Bandar thinks that the regime as a whole will be busy trying to settle the disputes between communities and ethnic groups. Bashar al-Assad will send delegates from his government to resolve sectarian and ethnic differences while Damascus will be empty of government pillars and here comes the turn of Damascus where each minority group avenge and the city flares up from all sides. This will be done as follows:
– The Christians in the east of Damascus kill Muslims who live among them in areas like Qassaa and Bab Touma. They also kill the Druze in the village of Jaramana.
– The Sunnis in the south of the city kill Shiites living among them in the “Shaghour” and the “Muhajereen” areas.
– Salafis in the areas of “Duma” and “Darayya” burn the headquarters of the municipality, courts and police stations.
– Alawites in the west of the city in “Mezze Jabal” area kill Sunnis who live among them.
– Kurds in the north of the city in “Rukn Eddin” area attack Arabs from all sects.
Meanwhile, Bandar believes that the army will be divided, the security systems and the government will collapse and Bashar will only have the Republican Guard, which he will not be able to move because the army will stand against him. This will make Bashar al-Assad’s presence in power the cause of all problems, and here comes the role of the fifth network the (network of the capital). The following has to be implemented:
– Holding a meeting between capital owners (businessmen) and leaders of the army and security bodies as well as ministers from Damascus and Aleppo. The plan is to convince them to abandon Bashar al-Assad promising them survival after the end of the President’s rule.
– In case some businessmen refuse to cooperate, they are threatened of canceling authorizations, of withdrawing investments and of sex scandals if they are among those penetrated by sexual relations.
– In case some army leaders refuse, they are threatened of imprisonment or assassination. If it is possible under a state of chaos, officers of high ranks, not from Damascus or Aleppo, could be assassinated to terrorize them.
-A national council of businessmen, ministers and security chiefs must be formed and recognized by the United States, France, Britain, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Bendar believes that at this stage, the following must be achieved
– The Council must demand Bashar al-Assad’s resignation.
– The Council must cut Syria’s ties with Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad.
– The Council must secretly undertake the responsibility of completing the peace process with Israel.
– The Council must form an interim government to dissolve parties and call for early elections and for the amendment of the constitution.
– The Council must set up an inquiry commission to investigate all the symbols of the former regime. It must blame the events on the Muslim Brotherhood exclusively.
– The Council must exclusively open the Syrian economy to the U.S., European, Saudi and Egyptian companies.
In the same context, al-Alam satellite news Channel revealed that what is being posted on “Facebook” is run by about 200 people who work for a company called ” Dot and Com” and who have been trained to create sedition.
According to the channel, the company and its employees work in silence and secretly under the protection of Jordan, but the company’s funding and the strategy which control the company’s works are set up by the Saudi intelligence – Bandar bin Sultan’s Branch -.
The channel’s report said the company “Dot And Com”, is apparently a private company owned by someone called Mohammed al-Qaisi. The company’s major center is based in the Jordanian capital Amman. It has branches in major Saudi cities. The company works with the Saudi Ministry of Defence and provides services to the Saudi intelligence system and the Ministry of Interior.
The Channel also confirmed that the company has established a crisis cell that works directly under the orders of Bandar. Two hundred internet specialists led by Saudi officers who are supported by U.S. advisers and psychological war experts, work in the company to hit Syria through Bandar bin Sultan’s crisis cells particularly in southern Syria. Meanwhile, the Lebanese Marwan Hamadeh, Basem al-Sabe’ and Hani Hammoud in cooperation with US Psychological war experts and a specialists in rumors called Elie Khoury manage similar crisis cells supported by officers from the Information Branch of Saad Hariri.
Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador in America, currently serves as Secretary General of the Saudi National Security Council. He was the only ambassador in Washington who enjoyed permanent guardianship by the US Presidential Guard. He is known for his link to issues related to supporting anti-resistance and pro-Israeli forces.

The Norway Manifesto: A New Bin Laden Is Born

var addthis_product = ‘wpp-261’;var addthis_config = {“data_track_clickback”:true}; “The Norway massacre: Is it a coincidence, is it another 9/11 or is it something that has been brewing for years now and nobody took notice of or saw it coming?”

“The termination of Bin Laden was not the end of this madness; rather it was only the beginning.”

Dr. Ashraf Ezzat

Is it a coincidence that the Norway attacks came after almost ten years have passed since the similarly horrific attacks on the towers of the world trade center in new York back in 2001 or what has been known in contemporary history as the 9/11 attacks.

As the world was getting prepared to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the New York attacks and as the world was recovering from the 9/11 trauma and about to leave its heavy and gloomy memories behind and never look back again we wake up to this painfully reminder of 9/11.
Is it a coincidence, is it another 9/11 or is it something that has been brewing for years now and nobody took notice of or saw it coming?

9/11 attacks in New York, 2001

Remembering 9/11

I still remember the whole world shocked and grieved by the size and the magnitude of destruction and the killing of the 3000 innocent New Yorkers but as the towers were crumbling down like a house of cards a gigantic question mark instantly stood in its place amongst the falling debris and descending ashes begging an answer as to why and who did this atrocious mass murder and destruction.
A great part of the relief from grief and pain is to know the reason that threw you in the depth of tribulation and to discover who caused you this agonizing misery. The moment you reveal the mystery behind the abhorrent crime is the moment your tears start to flow down from their springs washing away some of the pain and the bitterness left inside.

This moment of transient relief and solace was endowed upon the grieving people of the United States when the hardly vigilant administration of former president Bush delivered the Americans and the whole world out of their misery and bewilderment and hastily announced that the 9/11 atrocities had been planned and carried out by a bunch of Muslim fanatics, not more than 20 perpetrators, who had been active members in an international terrorist organization that acted around the globe under the leadership of Osama Bin Laden, some cave dweller in Afghanistan, who used to be a CIA operative during the soviet war there and who only excelled in growing a beard and videotaping ranting speeches.

“You’re either with us or against us”

9/11 was an unprecedented terrorist operation, sophisticated like we have never seen before in modern times and a lot of honest and truth seeking experts of military, architecture, politics, engineering, firefighting, aviation and chemistry attested to the fact, and some of them even proved, that 9/11 attacks were carried out by some covert agencies backed up by on ground assistance.

YouTube – Veterans Today -9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out, Trailer
In short, the experts and the intellectuals envisioned 9/11 as a false flag operation, one of the biggest ever till now, that meant to launch a worldwide anti- Muslim aggressive campaign that would only benefit the country that has been in conflict with the Arab and Muslim world for sixty years now and who knows for how many more years to come.

But the common people who don’t like sophisticated answers and brainstorming theories and who are used to the fast/junk food culture settled for the delivered to their doorsteps readymade- answer sent directly from the white house kitchen with the compliments of the Zionist chef and his neoconservative staff.

And that answer was eloquently summed up by the reckless former president bush, when he stated the rules of the America & allies’ new game with the axis of evil and announced with a smirky face and a sarcastic tone of voice you’re either with us, or against us” thus giving the launching signal not only for his stupid war of terror but for an upcoming era of worldwide tide of fundamentalism.

The moment people around the world especially in the United States and Europe bought into this story, as they sat glued to their TV screens like hypnotized couch potatoes, is the moment this whole madness and islamophobia started.

Former President Bush

The moment the people believed this cover-up and wicked to the bone story is the moment that gave the carte blanche for ten years of absolute political absurdity and military criminality … but most dangerously to the sprouting of religious fundamentalism and ideological terrorism.
The United States cluelessly pointed the finger at Bin Laden and his extremist interpretation of Islam nailing him for 9/11 but nevertheless let him on the loose for like ten years during which all the unbelievable political and military transgressions were committed.

Ten years of extreme right wing and Murdoch style mainstream media craze that kept hitting the target of tarnishing the Islam image irreparably amongst westerners- clearly exposing that this was the real tactical goal of the war on terrorism.

Ten years of meaningless military operations in Muslim countries that never posed a threat to the United States but what does it matter and why should anyone care as long as they were on the Israeli hit list.

Ten years during which the western public opinion has been fed with a constant and highly selective stories and headlines of Muslim suicide bombers, Bin laden fake videos and audiotapes, Muslim women wearing burqa in Afghanistan and banned from driving cars in Saudi Arabia, Ground Zero mosque hysteria, Iran nuclear overestimated threat, churches attacked in Egypt, Niqab banned in France and minarets in Switzerland, Hamas firing rockets at Israeli towns and school buses, Quran burned in America, al Qaeda affiliates in Iraq and the Arab peninsula, enforcement of sharia law and the eminent danger of the jihadists on the west, the perilous rise of political Islam in the Arab world and finally the official announcement of the failure of multiculturalism in Europe.

The Great Israel landgrab.

Where can we go from there?

When the forces of globalization have swept across the world, when the giant corporations have controlled the media and intoxicated the socio-political environment with right wing extremism and flooded the world with firearms and violent video games that turned our young generations into addicts of adrenaline boosting scenes of cold blooded murder with automatic gun machines… where can we go from there?

When the politicians of the so called free world community stand impotent and helpless in front of the might of the Israeli piecemeal ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians and let this festering wound to grow bigger and smell fouler as it divides the world into two antagonistic and hopelessly incompatible camps … where can we go from there?

When we sharpen the human appetite for blood and revenge with all these false flag operations and Zionist-infiltrated media, when we drag the supposed to be civilized world into some eternal war that knew no frontiers and no tangible objectives in the name of fighting terror, and when those politicians who started this global war foolishly define it as a new crusade … where can we go from there.

Bin Laden, when the story ends?

When we instill interfaith hatred, infuse an ambiance of vulnerability and build antagonistic egos in the size of cathedrals and mosques … where we can go from there.
When we ingrain those horrifying sketches of an enemy hiding explosives in his most intimate parts of his body, willing to blow himself up provided that he would not leave the world unless accompanied by a few westerners … and when we remove the faces of all Muslims and put Bin Laden’s instead … where can we go from there?

A new bin laden is born

And When it was finally time to terminate the world’s most wanted man, it only took the white house a small unit of special forces, and not the whole US led international troops, to raid on his hideout in Pakistan and give him the surprise of hislife time while he was feeding his chickens and watching the news of the American war on the terrorism in which he played no bigger role than the moron whom he and his so called mujahedeen had been played like puppets from afar by some remote control.

Anders Behring Breivik

… And when the game was over, all it took was a small click on a button, a dignified- mafia style burial in the bottom of the sea … but as the CIA was doing its cleanup job after they dumped the Bin Laden they made, little did they know what future held for them. They had no idea as they were licking their fingers clean that somehow, somewhere; a new Bin Laden was born.

The termination of Bin Laden was not the end of this madness; rather it was only the beginning.
When the so called world community embarks on a war against some staged terrorism, when this world community is tricked into unjustified world conflict we are bound to end up with a precarious situation where we will wake up one day not only morally and economically bankrupt but with a genuinely horrific terrorist attack in one of the world’s quietest and most peaceful backyards.

Norwegians in mourning

But this time it was not some cave dweller Muslim militant who suspiciously carried it out but the monstrous anti-hero this whole farcical war on terror has cruelly created.

It’s going to take the Norwegians a long time to figure out why this massacre took place on their land that annually tossed out to the world one of its Nobel peace prizes … but the long search will undoubtedly and eventually take them back to 9/11 mystery and the pathetic war on terrorism they foolishly took part in.

I think we can declare the war on terrorism has finally come to its fruition, now that the west is officially at war with Islam.
The Neocons& Zionist club has every right to rejoice, the world is being driven blindfolded into the dark abyss of intolerance and fundamentalism.

…. And as the mass murderer, Anders Behring Breivik has brazenly described his massacre it is atrocious, but necessary

… Where can we go from there … ?

Neo-Cons and Muslim Haters

var addthis_product = ‘wpp-261’;var addthis_config = {“data_track_clickback”:true};

Geert Wilders, David Horowitz, Robert Spencer, & Pam Geller

David Horowitz, Daniel Pipes, Robert Spencer, and Pamela Geller, all of whom have been leaders in the indictment of Islam.

by Phil Giraldi

They are the alligators in the swamp that they have created and are now frantically engaged in distancing themselves from their words and deeds. But sometimes the truth will out.

There has been considerable commentary over the possibility that the terrorism in Norway will trigger a reaction against “conservative” websites and will stifle legitimate debate over immigration and asylum policies. But the websites in question are not conservative at all but rather neoconservative, and the only immigration they oppose is immigration by Muslims.

Some leading neoconservatives cited by Anders Behring Breivik in his rambling commentary are David Horowitz, Daniel Pipes, Robert Spencer, and Pamela Geller, all of whom have been leaders in the indictment of Islam and each of whom is, not coincidentally, a vocal advocate of Israel and its policies. They are the alligators in the swamp that they have created and are now frantically engaged in distancing themselves from their words and deeds. But sometimes the truth will out.
Did Geller alert the Norwegian authorities? No, but she did make sure the Norwegian message was read by her thousands of supporters. Geller has removed the posting from her website but it can still be found through Google.

“I am running an email I received from an Atlas reader in Norway. It is devastating in its matter-of-factness:
‘Well, yes, the situation is worsening. Stepping up from 29,000 immigrants every year, in 2007 we will be getting a total of 35,000 immigrants from Somalia, Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan. The nation’s capital is already 50% Muslim, and they ALL go there after entering Norway. Adding the 1.2 births per woman per year from Muslim women, there will be 300,000+ Muslims out of the then 480,000 inhabitants of that city.
Orders from Libya and Iran say that Oslo will be known as Medina at the latest in 2010, although I consider this a PR-stunt nevertheless it is their plan.
From Israel the hordes clawing at the walls of Jerusalem proclaim cheerfully that next year there will be no more Israel, and I know Israel shrugs this off as do I, and will mount a strike during the summer against all of its enemies in the Middle East. This will make the Muslims worldwide go into a frenzy, attacking everyone around them.
Before, I thought about emigrating to Britain, Israel, USA, South Africa, etc. for taxes and politics, but instead (although I believe we are the very last generation on earth before the return of God) I will stay and fight for the right to this country and indeed the entire peninsula, for the God-fearing people, just in case this isn’t the end of the world after all. Doesn’t hurt to have a backup plan.
It’s far from impossible to achieve, after all my people has done it every time before, in feats that match the ancient Greek, Hebrew and British “legends”.
Oslo and the southeast may fall easily, but there are other lines than “state”-borders drawn across this country since long before there was even a single Muslim in the world, and we have held them this long, against everyone else too. We are entering a new golden age for my people, and those of a handful other countries, but only through struggle.

Hans Rustad

Breivik was reportedly also a regular poster on a similar blog run by Hans Rustad, a former left-wing, Jewish journalist who, like Geller, is extremely pro-Israel and, coincidentally, warns against ‘Islam-isation.’
As John Sugg, Max Blumenthal and others have exposed, pro-Israel neocons such as Geller are closely related to the growing hostility toward Muslims. We hope, but doubt, that the recent tragedy in Norway will cause them to re-think their actions, not simply try to hide them.
We also hope that others will not be taken in by their despicable manipulation.

Bloomberg: ‘Shalom to Muslims on Ramadan’

Posted on |

The Jewish billionaire New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg rocked the Zionist boat on Wednesday. While addressing a gathering of Muslim and community leaders at Ramadan conference at Police Headquarters at Manhattan – Bloomberg greeted the audience with ‘Shalom alaikum’ instead of traditional Muslim greeting ‘Salaam aliakum‘ in Arabic, meaning ‘Peace upon you’.

The annual Islamic month of fasting (Ramadan) starts coming Monday. During this month, the great majority of 1.7 billion Muslims around the world will abstain from consuming food and having sexual relationship – from dawn to dust while performing additional prayers and giving more charity.
Omar Abunamous, the prayer leader at Islamic Cultural Center of New York, tried to cover up Mayor’s verbal jujitsu, by saying: “Well, it’s common to both religions. They are the same thing. The same idea.”
Now, had Omar listened to Israel-born Gilad Atzmon what Zionist Jews really mean when they greet Goyim with ‘Shalom aleichem’ in Hebrew – he would not have said what was reported.

In May 2011 – Gilad Atzmon told his audience at London panel on Jewishness and Israeli Criminality:
“Like the Muslims, we have ‘Salaam‘ as a greeting, the Jews greet each other with Shalom – also a greeting of peace. However, Shalom doesn’t mean peace though. It means security. For Jews. That peace, (it means) peace for them only”.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg (born 1942) is 13th richest person in the US. He has been Mayor of City of New York since 2001.

The last time Mayor Bloomberg kicked Israel Lobby’s bucket – was when he threw his support behind Cordoba House (not a mosque) near the so-called ‘Ground Zero’.

“If somebody wants to build a religious house of worship, they should do it and we shouldn’t be in the business of picking which religions can and which religions can’t. I think it’s fair to say if somebody was going to try to on that piece of property build a church or a synagogue, nobody would be yelling and screaming. And the fact of the matter is that Muslims have a right to do it too. What is great about America and particularly New York is we welcome everybody and I just- you know, if we are so afraid of something like this, what does it say about us? Democracy is stronger than this. You know, the ability to practice your religion is the- was one of the real reasons America was founded. And for us to say no is just, I think, not appropriate is a nice way to phrase it”.

Daily NATO War Crimes in Libya

var addthis_product = ‘wpp-261’;var addthis_config = {“data_track_clickback”:true}; by Stephen Lendman

Among them is waging war on truth, Western managed news calling lawless imperial wars liberating ones. No wonder John Pilger says journalism is the first casualty of war, adding:
“Not only that: it has become a weapon of war, a virulent censorship (and deception) that goes unrecognised in the United States, Britain and other democracies; censorship by omission, whose power is such that, in war, it can mean the difference between life and death for people in faraway countries….”

In their book, “Guardians of Power,” David Edwards and David Cromwell explained why today’s media are in crisis and a free and open society at risk. It’s because press prostitutes substitute fiction for fact. News is carefully filtered, dissent marginalized, and supporting wealth and power substitutes for full and accurate reporting.

It’s a cancer, corrupting everything from corporate-run print and broadcast sources, as well as operations like BBC and what passes for America’s hopelessly compromised public radio and TV. They put out daily managed and junk food news plus infotainment, treating consumers like mushrooms – well-watered and in the dark.

During wars, in fact, they cheerlead them, reporting agitprop and misinformation no respectable journalist would touch.
On the Progressive Radio News Hour, Middle East/Central Asia analyst Mahdi Nazemroaya, in Tripoli, said some journalists also perform fifth column duties, collecting intelligence and locating targets to supply NATO bombing coordinates, notably civilian targets called military ones.
In a July 28 email, he said tell listeners that “NATO is trying to negotiate with the government in Tripoli.” More on that below. He added that they’re also “planning a new stage of the war against the Libyan people through (predatory) NGOs and fake humanitarian missions.” A likely UN Blue Helmet occupying force also, paramilitaries masquerading as peacekeepers Gaddafi controlled areas won’t tolerate.

NATO, in fact, calls civilian targets legitimate ones, including one or more hospitals, a clinic, factories, warehouses, agricultural sites, schools, a university, one or more mosques, non-military related infrastructure, a food storage facility, and others.

Notably on July 23, a Brega water pipe factory was struck, killing six guards. It produces pipes for Libya’s Great Man-Made River system (GMMR), an ocean-sized aquifer beneath its sands, making the desert bloom for productive agriculture, and supplying water to Libya’s people.

The previous day, a water supply pipeline was destroyed. It will take months to restore. The factory produced vital pipes to do it, a clear war crime like daily others. Moreover, the entire GMMR is threatened by a shortage of spare parts and chemicals. As a result, it’s struggling to keep reservoirs at a level able to provide a sustainable supply. Without it, a humanitarian disaster looms, very likely what NATO plans as in past wars.

On July 27, AFP said that:
“NATO warned that its warplanes will bomb civilian facilities if (Gaddafi’s) forces use them to launch attacks.” At the same time, a spokesman said great care is taken to minimize civilian casualties.
NATO lied. Daily, it’s attacking non-military related sites to destroy Libya’s ability to function in areas loyal to Gaddafi. Earlier, in fact, a spokesman claimed there was “no evidence” civilian targets were hit or noncombatants killed, except one time a major incident was too obvious to hide. Reluctantly it admitted a “mistake,” covering up a willful planned attack, knowing civilians were affected.
Libya (satellite) TV calls itself “a voice for free Libya….struggling to liberate Libya from the grip of the Gaddafi regime….” In fact, it’s a pro-NATO propaganda service, reporting misinformation on air and online.

On July 25, it headlined, “No evidence to support Gaddafi’s allegations that civilian targets were hit,” when, it fact, they’re struck daily.
Nonetheless, it claimed only military sites are bombed, saying Tripoli-based journalists aren’t taken to affected areas, “suggesting NATO’s gunners are hitting military targets, at least in the capital.”
In fact, corporate and independent journalists are regularly taken to many sites struck. Independent accounts confirm civilian casualties and non-military facilities bombed. Pro-NATO scoundrels report managed news, complicit in daily war crimes.

On July 28, Libya TV claimed “captured Gaddafi soldiers say army morale is low,” when, in fact, most Libyans support Gaddafi. Millions are armed. Gaddafi gave them weapons. They could easily oust him if they wish. Instead, they rally supportively, what Western media and Libya TV won’t report.
Moreover, captured soldiers say what they’re told, likely threatened with death or torture if they refuse, especially in rebel paramilitary hands, under NATO orders to terrorize areas they control.
As a result, civilian casualties mount, up to 1,200 or more killed and thousands wounded in pro-Gaddafi areas, many seriously as war rages. In addition, unknown numbers of combatant casualties on both sides aren’t known, nor is the civilian toll in rebel held areas.

Nonetheless, daily sorties and strikes continue. Since mid-July alone through July 27, they include:

  • July 14: 132 sorties and 48 strikes
  • July 15: 115 sorties and 46 strikes
  • July 16: 110 sorties and 45 strikes
  • July 17: 122 sorties and 46 strikes
  • July 18: 129 sorties and 44 strikes
  • July 19: 113 sorties and 40 strikes
  • July 20: 122 sorties and 53 strikes
  • July 21: 124 sorties and 45 strikes
  • July 22: 128 sorties and 46 strikes
  • July 23: 125 sorties and 56 strikes
  • July 24: 163 sorties and 43 strikes
  • July 25: 111 sorties and 54 strikes
  • July 26: 134 sorties and 46 strikes
  • July 27: 133 sorties and 54 strikes

Daily patterns are consistent. However, information on numbers and types of bombs, as well as other munitions aren’t given. Instead, misinformation claims a humanitarian mission protects civilians – by terrorizing, killing, and injuring them, solely for imperial aims. It’s why all US-led wars are fought, never for liberating reasons.

The entire campaign is based on lies. It’s standard war time procedure, to enlist popular support for campaigns people otherwise would reject.

In fact, no humanitarian crisis existed until NATO arrived. Moreover, in paramilitary controlled areas, Amnesty International confirmed only 110 pro and anti-Gaddafi supporter deaths combined, most likely more of the former than latter as rebel cutthroats rampaged through areas they occupy. Currently, the numbers of dead and injured civilians are many times that amount, largely from NATO attacks.
NATO, in fact, is code language for the Pentagon, paying the largest share of its operating and military budgets. Except for Germany and Britain, other members pay small shares, most, in fact, miniscule amounts.

Since NATO began bombing on March 19, daily attacks inflicted lawless collective punishment against millions in Gaddafi supported areas. Affected is their ability to obtain food, medicines, fuel and other basic supplies, exposing another lie about humanitarian intervention.
On July 25, OCHA’s fact-finding team said Tripoli contained “pockets of vulnerability where people need urgent humanitarian assistance.” Medical supplies are running low. The last major delivery was in January, and concerns are increasing about the “unsustainable food supply chain for the public distribution systems, especially as Ramadan approaches (on or around August 1 to about August 29) and the conflict persists.”

Moreover, “Libyan oil experts warned that fuel stocks could run out in two weeks.” Public transportation costs have tripled. Food prices have also soared. Tripoli residents experience electricity cuts, and clean water supplies are endangered.
Before conflict erupted, Libyans had the region’s highest standard of living and highest life expectancy in Africa because Gaddafi’s oil wealth provided healthcare, education, housing assistance and other social benefits. Imperial war, of course, changed things. Libyans now hang on to survive.
Seeking an End Game

On July 26, UPI headlined, “NATO seeks urgent exit strategy in Libya,” knowing this phase of the war is lost. Nonetheless, future strategies and campaigns will follow.
For now, however, “NATO is seeking an urgent exit strategy (to end) fighting and decide the future of (Gaddifi), even if that means letting him stay in the country though out of power, it emerged Tuesday after British and French foreign ministers met in London.”

In tribal Libya, Gaddafi’s power, in fact, is far less than reported, social anthropologist Ranier Fsadni saying:
“Gaddafi’s feeling for tribal Libya is certainly one factor that explains how he has managed to rule the country for so many years. (However), (t)here is no tribal office giving a single man a monopoly of institutional power at the apex….Several factors account for his longevity in power,” including sharing Libya’s oil wealth.
UPI said diplomacy is driven by a failed military campaign. As a result, “(i)ntense mediation efforts are underway at different levels at the United Nations and Europe, in African, European and Middle Eastern capitals and Russia.”
Neither side is commenting, but some observers think operations may wind down in weeks, based on an unannounced face-saving solution, despite continued destabilization and future conflict planned. It’s similar to Balkan and Iraq war strategies, a combination of tactics until Washington prevailed.
Libya faces the same end game, though years could pass before it arrives. As a result, Libyans can expect continued hardships. When imperial America shows up, that strategy persists until it prevails, no matter the pain and suffering inflicted.

IOF soldiers arrest Jordanian Lifeline activist

[ 30/07/2011 – 02:59 PM ] 

AMMAN, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested a Jordanian activist while crossing into the West Bank from Jordan to visit relatives in Al-Khalil province two week ago, his family said.

They told the PIC reporter in Amman on Saturday that Hamza Al-Dabbas, 29, who is carrying a Jordanian passport, was detained on 10/7/2011 by the Israeli intelligence.
The relatives said that ever since then they did not have any information about Dabbas, who is a member of the Jordanian Lifeline convoy that sends humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip and who works with the Jordanian engineers syndicate.

They said that none of his relatives was informed of his whereabouts, adding that the Jordanian government did nothing so far.

"We are looking for the most effective way to tell Assad he must go!"

FLC

MEPGS; Excerpts;

A consensus has emerged within the Administration that the current regime in Syria not only has no future but that it is only a matter of time before the President declares that President Bashar al-Assad must go. As one top Administration official put it this week, “We are looking for the most effective way and point to say he has to leave.” Even three weeks ago, there were some US officials who argued that the Assad regime could work its way through the current situation. But no longer. They now see the uprising spreading and deepening and that every maneuver by the authorities has come up short….
Hama was the site of the controversial visit by US Ambassador Robert Ford… Ford’s visit, according to informed sources, was not coordinated at the top levels of the White House or the State Department. The Ambassador, a low key, fluent Arab speaker, took it upon himself (with some lower level coordination among colleagues in Washington/ read:JF) to make a gesture, knowing it would infuriate the Syrian regime

STATE: ‘Odious demeanor!’
However, with this dramatic gesture, the Administration, at least for the time being, has run out of new pressure points to apply to the Syrian government. There is no appetite to expel Syria’s Ambassador to the US, Imad Mustapha, despite his embassy’s involvement in spying on Syrian protestors in the US (as well as his odious demeanor). Such a move, would likely provoke the expulsion of Ford, who only got his post via a “recess appointment” – the result of some key Republican Senators’ objection to “rewarding” Syria by sending back a US Ambassador after years of being represented at a lower level. “We still are having difficulty convincing some Senators of the obvious value of top level representation,” complained one exasperated State Department official, aware of lingering doubts in the Congress over the wisdom of dealing at all with a noxious regime like the one in Syria. Another route that has been explored to exert pressure on Syria is through importers refusing to purchase its limited oil exports. “There just aren’t enough takers,” says one Administration insider.
Although there is little doubt that Assad’s days are numbered, there seems to be little planning within the Administration about what to do after he goes. There is no doubt among veteran analysts that there will be competition for influence among Syria’s neighbors as well as other interested parties, such as the US and Saudi Arabia []…”

Madsen Cites Mossad in Norway Terror

var addthis_product = ‘wpp-261’;var addthis_config = {“data_track_clickback”:true}; After Oslo: Time to Crack Down On Mossad Terrorism

by Wayne Madsen

State-sponsored terrorism is defined by Encyclopedia Britannica as the “systematic use of violence to create a general climate of fear in a population and thereby to bring about a particular political objective [and] is employed by governments — or more often by factions within governments — against that government’s citizens, against factions within the government, or against foreign governments or groups.”

On July 22, a bomb, said to be an Oklahoma City-type explosive device, crafted with fertilizer and diesel fuel, blew up in downtown Oslo, Norway, in the heart of the government district. Shortly thereafter, a man dressed in a Norwegian police uniform opened fire on a Labor Party youth camp on the island of Utoya in Tyri fjord. Access to the island was by boat only. Over 100 people were killed in the twin terror attacks.

Almost immediately, the world’s corporate media began pushing the story that those who were responsible for the blast and mass shooting were associated with “Al Qaeda” and other radical Islamist groups. CNN’s Washington, DC chief anchor Wolf Blitzer, a former spokesman for the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobby and a correspondent for the Jerusalem Post, began his late afternoon program by pointing to “Al Qaeda” and radical Islamists as the chief culprits for the terrorist attacks in Norway.

CNN paraded out a number “experts,” in actuality, propagandists for the Israeli agenda linked to neo-conservative outlets and the Pentagon’s “terrorism industrial complex,” before the cameras to advance the radical Islamist meme even as Norwegian authorities pinned blame on the attack on at least one perpetrator, a Norwegian named Anders Behring Breivik. CNN constantly showed footage of frightened people in downtown Oslo running for their lives from the site of the blast, as well as still photograph of a pall of light-brown smoke over downtown Oslo. Of course, CNN’s intention was to evoke memories of the 9/11 attack in Manhattan.

Breivik, who sometimes anglicized his name as Andrew Berwick in his numerous web postings, was said to be a right-wing Islamophobe who sympathized with Zionism and who was a Freemason… Breivik was also reported to be a fundamentalist Christian but he adopted a stance against the Lutheran Church, the state church of Norway, and argued for a “collective” counter-reformation to return the Protestant churches to the control of the Vatican and the Pope. Breivik lambasted the Lutheran Church and other mainstream Protestant churches, condemning “Priests in jeans who march for Palestine.”
More incredibly, the London tabloid of Rupert Murdoch’s scandal-plagued News International, The Sun, went to press with the following false headline: “Norway’s 911: ‘Al Qaeda’ Massacre.” On March 29, 2011, Harvard Law School’s extremist Zionist Professor Alan Dershowitz penned a piece in the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal, a newspaper that actively discriminates against the hiring of non-Jews as reporters and editors in violation of U.S. civil rights and equal opportunity employment laws, in which he called Norway anti-Semitic. Dershowitz cited as an example former Norwegian Prime Minister Kare Willock’s criticism of President Barack Obama’s choice of Rahm Emanuel as his chief of staff because he is Jewish. In fact, Emanuel’s pro- Israeli sympathies as a former member of the Israel Defense Force are what prompted many political observers in Washington and elsewhere to question his primary loyalty to the United States.

A network of Israeli bloggers pushed a claim of responsibility on a previously-unknown group called Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami (the Helpers of the Global Jihad). The group’s claims were picked up and run by several corporate media outlets and then pulled when it was discovered the claim was a hoax. Mossad has a program to distribute bogus claims of responsibility for Islamist terrorist attacks via “Jihadist” websites that are actually operated by the Mossad and a network of “hasbaratchiks,” Israeli and foreign Jews who act as propagandists on the web. These hasbara (propaganda) agents and volunteers operate through such programs as Megaphone and GIYUS (“Give Israel Your United Support.”) After the attempt to blame the Norway attacks on Islamists failed, the “hasbaratchiks” shifted to “sock puppet” troll mode, posting comments on blogs that criticized allegations that Mossad and Zionists were behind the Norway attacks, emphasizing that such beliefs were “anti-Semitic” and wild “conspiracy theories.” Some Israeli “sock puppets” even offered lunatic suggestions that Breivik was planted by Islamists to make Israel and Zionists look bad.

When the “Islamist” connection to the holocaust in Norway was shown to be non-existent after Norwegian security and police agencies began looking at the evidence, the corporate media switched its propaganda line from “radical Islam” being responsible to “far –right extremism” opposed to multiculturalism and immigration in Europe as the culprit. Even outlets that in the past had been known for their independence from the corporate media line, including Al Jazeera and RT [formerly known as Russia Today], echoed the line that Breivik primarily represented right-wing opposition to Muslim immigrants in Europe. Al Jazeera repeated the line that Breivik was a “lone madman,” the insinuation being that he was not linked to any wider network. While Breivik certainly was associated with the far-right xenophobic elements in Norway, Europe, and North America, there was no mention by the corporate media of his admiration for such American Zionist Islamophobes as Richard Pipes and Pam Geller. Geller led the bigoted anti-Muslim campaign against an Islamic Center near the site of “Ground Zero,” the former World Trade Center site, in lower Manhattan. Breivik posted a number of his anti-Muslim and pro-Zionist screeds on the Norwegian website http://www.document.no, which is operated by Hans-Kristian Rustad, a Norwegian pro-Israeli journalist.

No corporate media outlets reported that the brand of far-right extremism of Breivik is closely associated with Zionist-supported far-right anti-immigrant political parties and movements in Western Europe, including the mis-named Progress Party of Norway, the Dutch Freedom Party of Islamophobe Geert Wilders, the Sweden Democrats, Finland’s True Finns Party, the Danish People’s Party, the English Defense League, the Pro-Germany Citizen’s Movement, and a pan-Nordic fascist terrorist group called “Nordiske.” Breivik also expressed support for the Tea Party in the United States…

The European anti-Muslim xenophobic network is linked to the notorious publication of Prophet Muhammad cartoons by the neo-conservative Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten and Norway’s Dagbladet. The Euro-xenophobes are supported by the longtime Zionist Bernard-Henri Levy, the French philosopher who is a friend of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and disgraced former International Monetary Fund managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn. It is noteworthy that Levy is one of the major backers of the Libyan rebels fighting Muammar Qaddafi. Norway announced it was pulling its aircraft from the NATO campaign in Libya at the end of July. Norway also announced its support for Palestine’s sovereignty resolution in the UN General Assembly in September.

As more and more evidence pointed to Oslo being yet another example of a state-sponsored terrorist attack by Israel’s Mossad, the corporate media studiously avoided mentioning how the Norwegian government through its recent actions, had become a major problem for Israel and its allies abroad, especially on the Palestine sovereignty issue… In addition, Norwegian police and intelligence are painfully aware of Mossad’s past operations in Norway, including the infamous Lillehammer Affair in 1973. On July 21, 1973, Mossad agents assassinated Ali Hassan Salameh, a Moroccan waiter in Lillehammer, wrongly believing he was the operations chief for the Palestinian terrorist group “Black September.” Norwegian police arrested the Mossad agents who killed Salameh and uncovered an intricate network of Mossad safe houses, phone numbers, and Norwegian sleeper agents for Mossad.

Just as was the case with the coordinated bombings of Madrid trains on March 22, 2004 and London buses and trains on July 7, 2005, viewed by European security services as being the work of not “Al Qaeda” but domestic “radicals,” there was no link to Islamist radicals with the attacks in Norway. However, there was every indication that the attack on Norway was intended to shake up the Norwegian population and damage the reputation of the left-of-center Norwegian government of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.

The corporate media insisted that Breivik was solely responsible for Norway’s worst violent attack since World War II. Norwegian police reports that a second gunman, described as having “thick dark hair and a non-Nordic appearance,” were suppressed in much of the corporate media. The time line of the Oslo attack causes anyone’s imagination to be stretched on being sold a “lone gunman/bomber” theory.

At 3:26 pm Oslo time a massive car bomb was detonated outside the office of the Prime Minister of Norway. Since July 22 was a public holiday, there were relatively few people inside the Prime Minister’s office or the surrounding offices of the Petroleum and Energy Ministry and the VG [Verdens Gang] newspaper, Norway’s largest paper.

As police responded to the downtown Oslo blast, Breivik was said to have taken a boat the Utoya island dressed as a policeman and began opening fire on young members of the Norwegian Labor Party youth camp meeting. The shooting allegedly began at 4:50 pm. Norwegian SWAT team “Delta” had trouble getting a helicopter started and struggled to find a boat to get to Utoya island. The SWAT team finally arrived on the island at 6:20 pm only to find scores of the next generation of Norwegian Labor Party leaders dead. Breivik calmly surrendered to the police. When Breivik arrived on Utoya he told police on the island that he was there for a routine security check following the bombing in downtown Oslo.

Norway’s Acting Police chief Sveinung Sponheim said the police were still investigating whether Breivik was acting with a larger network. Sponheim’s revelation countered the “lone wolf” theory advanced by corporate media outlets in Western nations.
Norway’s coalition Labor-Socialist Left government has been seen as hostile to the interests of Israel and the United States. There is now a widespread belief that the terrorist attack against Norway was engineered to shock erstwhile peaceful Norway, a nation where police generally still patrol the streets unarmed, into adopting the police state tactics of the United States, Israel, Britain, and other Western nations. Norway’s pro-Palestinian foreign policy also irked the Zionist and the far-right anti-Islamic factions in Europe and North America, as well as the governments of Israel and the United States.
In a move that complements American and Israeli propaganda that Norway has not stepped up to the surveillance state model imposed by other Western governments, the suspicious WikiLeaks decided to release U.S. State Department cables from the U.S. embassy in Oslo that criticized Norway for not recognizing the “Al Qaeda” threat and maintaining an insufficient security apparatus to combat Islamist terrorism and Pakistani immigrants.

The Barack Obama-appointed U.S. ambassador in Oslo, Barry White, who is Jewish and received a 2005 award from the pro-Israel American Jewish Committee, complained that the Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) rejected two twelve-person British MI-6 intelligence surveillance teams to monitor an “Al Qaeda” cell in Norway. Last November, the Norwegian government was shocked to learn that the U.S. embassy was operating a Surveillance Detection Unit in Oslo that was monitoring Norwegian citizens. Norwegian Justice Minister Knut Storberget said he was not informed of the presence of the U.S. spy unit in Oslo, which employed retired Norwegian police and intelligence officials. The Norwegian Data Protection Commissioner, Bjorn Erik Thon, said he had never seen such an intelligence operation in Norway. White complained that Norwegian security officials were apathetic and incompetent in dealing with the Islamist “terrorist threat.” The failure of the Norwegian SWAT team to quickly respond to the massacre on Utoya may indicate that Norway’s law enforcement and security networks and command-and-control systems had been interfered with by infiltrators with knowledge of the Norwegian systems. Those retired police and intelligence officials working for the U.S. embassy’s surveillance unit are likely suspects in sabotaging the Norwegian police reaction capabilities on 7/22. Just 48 hours before the bombing in Oslo, police units were engaged in a terrorist bombing exercise at the Oslo Opera House, near what would later be “ground zero.” In addition, in the days before the terrorist bombing, there was suspicious sewer work being conducted in the area near the Prime Minister’s office.
In March, the leader of the Socialist Left, Kristen Halvorsen, the Minister of Education of Norway and a former Finance Minister, called for military action against Israel if it attacked Gaza. The Socialist Left and Labor Party, along with the Norwegian Peace Association and the Norwegian energy and telecommunications union, strongly support the Boycott Israel campaign, which includes backing the pan-European Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) committee and an embargo on arms sales to the Jewish state. In August 2010, the Norwegian pension fund divested in two Israeli companies controlled by Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev, Africa Israel Investments and its subsidiary Danya Cebus.
Halvorsen had recently met with a delegation of American Jews who complained about Norway’s “anti-Semitism,” the tired and worn-out canard used by Zionists in confronting anti-Israeli sentiment around the world. In January, Halvorsen and her husband, Christo Halvorsen, a producer for the Norsk Rikskringkasting (NRK) television and radio network, took part in an anti-Israel and U.S. march in Oslo where picket signs with phrases like “USA and Israel: Axis of Evil” appeared. The Halvorsens and NRK were subjected to a vicious campaign launched by Zionists and the Israel Lobby in Norway.
Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre of the Labor Party has been criticized by the Israel Lobby and Zionists for comparing Israel’s treatment of Palestinians to Nazi Germany’s treatment of Jews. Støre has also called for the demolition of Israel’s “Separation Wall” that runs through Palestinian territory on the West Bank, a stance that has earned him enmity and hatred from Israel’s government and their Zionist allies in the West. Store paid a visit to Utoya before the massacre. The Foreign Minister was on the island as some of the Labor Party youth were participating in a “Boycott Israel” demonstration. The city of Trondheim was criticized by Israel for funding a trip to the UN in New York for Norwegian students to participate in a play called the “Gaza Monologues.” Israel also blasted Norway for distributing a film called “Tears of Gaza.”

After Israel offered assistance to Norway, including forensic and medical assistance, as well as the evacuation of the wounded from the 7/22 attack, Norway declined the offer. The rejection of assistance from Israel indicates that the Norwegian government was suspicious of the offer from Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak. Other Israeli military teams in the West Bank have been accused of trafficking in human organs, an expose brought to light by the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet in August 2009. That same month, Israel’s anti-Arab and anti-Muslim Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman accused Sweden and Norway of anti-Semitism, adding the outrageous charge that Norway was pro-Nazi, even though Norway’s anti-Muslim and pro-Zionist activists were affiliated with neo-Nazi organizations. On December 11, 2010, a suspicious terrorist explosion took place in downtown Stockholm, injuring two people and blamed on a Swedish-Iraqi suicide bomber. The bombing took place two weeks after the Swedish media reported that a Surveillance Detection Unit, operated form the U.S. embassy in Stockholm, was spying on Swedish citizens.

In the past few months, the Mossad has committed blatant acts of espionage and possible other terrorist attacks against nations it perceives as pro-Palestinian. During last year’s devastating earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand, a team of Mossad agents was caught in the city. One of the agents died in the quake. The Mossad agents were found with multiple passports and thumb drives believed to have been used to download sensitive data from New Zealand government computer systems. New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key, who seemingly came from obscurity in New Zealand politics and whose Jewish mother immigrated from England, disregarded claims of Mossad espionage during the quake, even though he spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu four times on the day of the quake, after the dead Mossad agent was discovered by New Zealand police and intelligence.
New Zealand’s Southland Times was criticized by New Zealand’s Jewish community and Israel for promoting “conspiracy theories,” the typical modus operandi for pro-Israeli Jews, known as sayanim and katsas, who are used by Israel abroad as propaganda and espionage agents. Ironically, Key was meeting with Obama at the White House as the bombing and shootings were occurring in Norway. Key was believed to have attended the homo-erotic annual meeting of a men-only fraternity composed of American and foreign political and business elitists at the secluded Bohemian Grove in northern California, a conclave that also saw the attendance of Israel’s most notorious agent-of-influence in America, Henry Kissinger, who also serves as Obama’s “special envoy” to the Russian leadership. Key’s Labor Party predecessor, Helen Clark, was the subject of criticism in leaked 2004 State Department cables from the U.S. embassy in Wellington for cracking down on a Mossad team’s acquisition of forged New Zealand passports. Once again, the cable leaks were courtesy of the suspect WikiLeaks operation.

One of the Mossad perpetrators, Zev William Barkan, who fled New Zealand to avoid arrest, had also been reported in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh, where he and other Israelis were producing pornographic and “snuff” movies, in which unsuspecting vagrants were murdered on camera.
In Egypt, Mossad agents have been accused by the present government of fomenting riots between Muslims and Coptic Christians. A recent explosion of seized Iranian weapons and ammunition being stored at a Cypriot naval base, a blast that killed the head of the Cypriot Navy, remains suspicious. The blast followed the decision of Cyprus’s left-of-center government to recognize the sovereignty of Palestine. The resulting public outrage over the blast resulted in the resignation of pro-Palestinian Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou and a major political embarrassment for Cyprus’s president Dimitris Christofias, a member of the Communist AKEL party.

Mossad is a master at false-flag terrorist attacks designed to alter perceptions and punish opponents of Israeli policy. The fingerprints of Israeli intelligence are all over the 9/11 attacks on the United States, the 3/22 train bombings in Madrid, the 7/7 transit bombings in London, and, now, the 7/22 attacks in Norway… While the Israeli-influenced corporate media has droned on and on about the dangers of Islamist terrorism, it is now obvious that the major threat to public safety comes from the State of Israel, a rogue nation that does not hesitate to murder the innocent to achieve its sordid political aims.

Relatives of West Bank political prisoners hold sit-in

[ 30/07/2011 – 10:38 AM ] 

NABLUS, (PIC)– Scores of Palestinians held a sit-in at Dawar al-Shuhada Square downtown Nablus amid demands for the release of their relatives held as political prisoners in the prisons of the Palestinian Authority.
Elements from the PA’s preventative security agency already arrested one protester for joining the sit-in and showing support.
The protesters stressed the importance of releasing the prisoners ahead of the holy month of Ramadan.
A West Bank political prisoners’ families committee announced forming the peaceful sit-in at 11am Saturday.
In a statement, the committee called on Palestinian legislators, party representatives, and legal and human rights bodies to join the protests in a bid to continue pressure for the release of the West Bank political prisoners.

The statement said the protest was timed to mark the near arrival of the holy month of Ramadan.

Again. Who are Libya’s rebels? And, BTW, who are Syria’s opposition illuminatis?

Via FLC

“For NATO allies struggling to understand who exactly they are backing, the death of Gen. Abdel Fatah Younes is likely raise more questions about who the rebels are and how they would conduct themselves if Gadhafi lost control of the capital… Mustafa Abdul Jalil, the leader of the Transitional National Council that serves as the rebel government, told reporters that Gadhafi loyalists had killed Younes… But the chain of events was confusing. Hours earlier, the TNC had ordered Younes, 67, to return from Brega for questioning in what Jalil called a military matter, and rumors swirled throughout the day that he was being accused of conducting secret talks with the Gadhafi government…”

And Reuters,

“…Some rebels were never comfortable with an army leader who had until recently been so close to Gaddafi, and Younes had been involved in a dispute over the leadership of the rebel forces.
Jalil said Younes was shot before appearing in front of the judicial committee and the head of the armed cell that killed him had been arrested.
It was not clear where Younes and his bodyguards had been killed or how Jalil had learned of their deaths, but Jalil said all efforts were being made to find their bodies.
Shortly afterwards, gunmen burst into the grounds of the hotel where Jalil was speaking and fired bursts of shots in the air, a Reuters reporter said….”

Jamil Sayyed: Hariri Head of Conspiracy in His Father’s Case

Local Editor
General Jamil Sayyed said that the first thing that came to his mind when receiving the news about the accusation of Hezbollah members in the assassination of late PM Rafiq Hariri, was the day when he, and the three other generals were falsely accused and arrested for the same reason.
In an interview with Al-Manar TV Friday, General Sayyed asked: “What Saad Hariri and what international justice will the Lebanese believe now?”
“Will they believe the “justice of 2005” or the “justice of 2011”, and what will stop the same incidents that happened with the four officers from happening with the accused members of Hezbollah?”
He stated that “Saad Hariri leads the false witnesses’ conspiracy in his father’s assassination. He knows that he assassinated his father once again when he conspired with the false witnesses, and I have evidence on that…”
General Sayyed further considered that “for Hezbollah to triumph over the indictment, it neither needs arms nor strength. It only needs the state’s recognition that the tribunal failed due to its mistakes.”

“The International Tribunal’s General Prosecutor Daniel Bellemare seeks to protect Saad Hariri, Marwan Hamadeh and others. Hence, the tribunal is a tool in the hands of Israel and America against Syria and the resistance… the false witnesses issue is not just political but also juristic.”
Regarding Bellemare’s intention to officially declare the names of the four Hezbollah members accused by the international tribunal, former General Security Chief reminded that “the international tribunal has destroyed itself, and now Bellemare and (Daniel) Francen are fighting for executing their goals. Justice requires that Saad Hariri gets imprisoned in Lahai because of the false witnesses.”
In parallel, when asked about the false witnesses’ effect on the tribunal, General Sayyed said: “the case starts with (Information Branch Chief) Wissam Al-Hasan, (State Prosecuter) Said Mirza, (ISF Chief) Ashraf Rifi, (PM Saad) Hariri, and (MP Walid) Jumblatt, as the people cannot believe them anymore unless they clarify before the Lebanese public opinion the reason behind seizing Lebanon for six years and protecting as well as creating the false witnesses. What was their goal?”
Moreover, General Sayyed added that “after the international tribunal refused to adopt the false witnesses’ case, the Lebanese court should study such a case. The tribunal is supposed to refer this case to the judicial council and trial Mirza and Rifi”.

U.S. Priorities in a Changing Middle East
Interviewee:
Robert Danin, Eni Enrico Mattei Senior Fellow for Middle East and Africa Studies, Council on Foreign Relations
Interviewer:
Deborah Jerome, Deputy Editor, CFR.org, Council on Foreign Relations

July 27, 2011
…We must keep our focus on Egypt, first and foremost. As home to a quarter of the Arab peoples and perhaps the key galvanizer within the region, Egypt will be the critical trendsetter. A smooth and peaceful transition to a more representative government, with checks and balances, could have a positive demonstration effect. Similarly, a descent into greater sectarian conflict, a failed transition to effective civil governance, and no real improvement could precipitate more unrest and ultimately violence. The Obama administration understands that Egypt is central and is focused on that.
Obviously, Libya is now critical because we and the international community are engaged there militarily. We have drawn a line in the sand, and we now have lives and credibility at stake. This will have a regional demonstration effect of one sort or another. I would point to three other places critical for the United States: First is Saudi Arabia, given the West’s energy dependency and Saudi Arabia’s centrality to Gulf security. Second is Syria, the only Arab state fully aligned with Iran, which has become a widespread killing field for the regime against its own people. Third is Yemen, a potentially failed state that risks becoming a sanctuary for terrorists and anti-Western radicals.

How has the U.S. intervention in Libya driven policy options in Syria?
The United States has been slow to react to developments in Syria and slow to condemn the regime’s brutality. It is probably the case that NATO’s military involvement in Libya detracts from our ability to focus on Syria. We do not have an obvious military option in Syria, nor should we explore one. But there needs to be greater attention focused on Syria, and greater international community mobilization around a common position, much as we have done via the Libya Contact Group. We also need improved outreach to key parties in the region about Syria, particularly its neighbors—Turkey, Jordan, Israel, and Saudi Arabia, which, while not a neighbor, can play a critical role.
The fundamental problem in Syria now is that the longer the unrest continues, the greater the risk that the Assad regime will manipulate it and exacerbate the divisions that exist within a diverse population consisting of Alawites, Christians, Sunnis, and Kurds. Our goal now must be twofold: To drive a wedge between Assad and the Alawite community, to prevent the conflict from becoming sectarian. And to find carrots and sticks to encourage the Sunni merchant classes in Damascus and Aleppo, places that have remained quiet so far, to break from the regime. This could allow for a rapid transition from power. My fear is the longer this drags on, the more difficult the situation will become, and the greater the chances for real civil war.
Let’s say the United States gets what it wishes for in Libya, and Qaddafi steps aside. What would be the aftermath of that in Libya? What about a similar scenario in Syria?
Libya has become important, disproportionately so, because of the region’s call for an international response and because of our subsequent efforts to dislodge Qaddafi. The international community met the challenge by authorizing United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, which precipitated the first real humanitarian intervention in the Arab world. This sent an important message of concern. But the subsequent mission creep has led to a call for and effort to bring about regime change. We, in the form of NATO, are now fully engaged in Libya. As a result, we’ve committed ourselves to helping to sort out a broken state after Qaddafi is gone. Given that the country has no effective institutions by Qaddafi’s designs, and the strong tribal makeup of the country, salvaging a post-Qaddafi Libya is going to be a major challenge. We, in the form of NATO, are now fully engaged in Libya. As a result, we’ve committed ourselves to helping to sort out a broken state after Qaddafi is gone.
Syria’s socio-economic makeup is fundamentally different. It has a middle class, an educated elite. It has a conscript army that could play an effective role if it manages to disassociate itself from the Assad regime. So the challenges of nation-building that I fear face us in Libya are much less so when it comes to Syria. Yet both places face the risk of real civil war…”

Responds to Indictment: Trial in Absentia or After "300 Years"

Hussein Assi
Former Minister Issam Naaman to Al-Manar Website:

  • Fransen’s Decision… Comic!
  • Names of Suspects Leaked before Mirza Opened File
  • International Tribunal Enjoys No Confidentiality at All
  • Sanctions against Lebanon… Out of Question
  • Two Choices: Trial in Absentia… or Delay for 300 Years!
  • Sayyed Nasrallah Changed Rules of Engagement…
Former Minister Issam Naaman said that the decision made by Special Tribunal for Lebanon Pre-trial judge Daniel Fransen concerning lifting confidentiality off the full names and aliases, biographical information, photographs and charges of the four suspects in the assassination case of former Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri was completely comic. He noted that the names of the four suspects were leaked even before Lebanese Prosecutor Judge Said Mirza opened this file.

In an exclusive interview with Al-Manar Website, Naaman said there was no confidentiality at all in this tribunal, and stressed that leaks have surrounded it since its establishment and even before.
While noting that the new ‘revelations’ will not change anything in the general picture, he spoke of two possibilities that could be adopted by the tribunal: either postponing trials until arresting the suspects “in 300 years,” or conducting trials in absentia.

THE INNOCENT… OFFICERS!

Former Minister Issam Naaman recalled of the entire course of investigations conducted by the tribunal and the international independent investigation commission, and noted how leaks surrounded it since its first days.

He recalled how the first chief of the IIIC, German Judge Detlev Mehlis, had leaked information on the investigations, and said these leaks signaled that there was a specific trend seeking to accuse Syria of involvement in the former Prime Minister’s murder. “Afterwards, four major senior officers in the Lebanese state were arrested and put in jail for some four years,” he said, in reference to former head of the general security department, Jamil Sayyed, former head of the presidential guard Mustafa Hamdan, former head of the International Security Forces Ali Hajj, and former military intelligence chief Raymond Azar.

“Afterwards, false witnesses were uncovered, obliging the IIIC’s second chief Judge Serge Brammertz to send a recommendation to the Lebanese judiciary authorities, General Prosecutor Said Mirza, in which he stated that there was no evidence against the officers and that they could be released. But Mirza did not free them, under the pretext that such a move could create chaos in the country, given that the agreement signed between the United Nations Security Council and the Lebanese government gives the international tribunal the absolute power to deal with the original case, that is Hariri’s case and those related to it.”

“Following the end of Brammertz’s mandate, Judge Daniel Bellemare was appointed as the IIIC chief. He reached the same conclusion and gave the same recommendation to the Lebanese judiciary, but nothing happened for the same reasons. But, when Bellemare was assigned as prosecutor, he raised the issue with Pre-Trial Judge Daniel Fransen who ordered the release of the four officers due to the absence of any evidence against them, in other words, because they are innocent.”

LEAKS… TRIBUNAL’S MAIN ASPECT

Naaman went on to say that the tribunal never enjoyed anything called confidentiality as leaks were its aspect since its first days. In this context, he pointed to the leaks that anticipated the release of the indictment, referring to the reports published in French daily Le Figaro, German magazine Der Spiegel, Kuwaiti daily As-Siyassah, in addition to some Israeli newspapers. He also pointed to the statement made in September by then Israeli Chief of Staff Gaby Ashkenazi who said that the indictment would name members of Hezbollah and would lead to chaos in Lebanon.
The former minister said that all these leaks were a proof of the non-confidentiality, and criticized Judge Fransen’s decision, which ordered the lifting confidentiality off the full names and aliases, biographical information, photographs and charges against the suspects named in the indictment. He noted that everything was uncovered since a long time, and mainly when the Lebanese Prosecutor was provided with a part of the indictment. “At the time, the four names were leaked even before Mirza opened the file containing their names,” he said.

BELLEMARE’S WORDS BASELESS

Answering a question about the STL Prosecutor Daniel Bellemare’s statement in which he claimed that publicizing the information may increase the possibility that the accused gets apprehended, Naaman said that such words were useless and they change nothing in the general picture.
Concerning the next steps, Naaman said that the government is expected to submit August 13, a report to the tribunal on the outcome of the trace. He spoke of two possibilities that could be adopted by the tribunal: either postponing trials until arresting the suspects “in 300 years,” or conducting trials in absentia.
Answering another question about possible sanctions to be imposed on Lebanon in case the four suspects were not arrested, Naaman said that such sanctions were not possible and that they were out of question. He explained that the UNSC resolution 1757, which created the tribunal, did not refer to the Chapter 7 part allowing the implementation of military procedures.

CHANGING RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

To conclude, Former Minister Issam Naaman spoke of the recent developments in relation to the oil wealth. He pointed to what he called a “change in the rules of engagement,” but stressed that this change did not take place as Israel hoped, but according to the new balance declared by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah in his latest speech “oil-for-oil”.
Naaman noted that Israel was seeking a change in the rules of engagement in relation to the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL). “Currently, these forces cannot enter southern residents’ homes without the approval and accompaniment of the Lebanese Army. Israel is seeking to delete this condition, but it will fail.”
He declared, however, that Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah succeeded in changing the rules of engagement through the “oil-for-oil” new balance, when he declared that whoever harms the future maritime Lebanese projects, will face the same damage and Israel knows that Lebanon is capable of such damage.

Lebanon’s Joan of Bark: ‘Nasrallah is all talk, …we will protect our resources, like we always do!.’

Via FLC 

… like we did for decades, like we did when israel occupied lebanon with the frequency of the World Cup, like we did when israel stole the only resources we had so far (water), like we did when israel slaughtered our people even when they sought refuge with the UN contingent in the land where Jesus made wonders, like we did when israel waltzed in, burned our airport and civilian fleet, like we did when israel strolled in and assassinated arab leaders in our capital …and like we did when israel occupied, shelled & starved the first and only Arab capital in the history of our region! Yes, kabbara and his clones in the Future movenent will protect Lebanon’s resources!

“… Future bloc MP Mohammad Kabbara said on Thursday that Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah “once again harmed” the Lebanese state …
“Sayyed Nasrallah must know that these resources are protected by the people, army and official institutions and not by he who claims to protect the state and steals its abilities and kills its people,” Kabbara said in a statement issued by his press office.(Oooh look at you! Press office and all!)…
Kabbara also criticized Nasrallah for supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad …
“We announce our full solidarity with the Syrian people… “Let it be known…that we will not allow the authority of illegitimate arms to take Lebanon hostage to protect Assad’s regime…”
