The “Wounded Boy In Orange Seat” – Another Staged “White Helmets” Stunt

Source

This pic is making the rounds in “western” media together with a tearful story from “activists” in a neighborhood in al-Qaeda occupied east-Aleppo.

A boy, seemingly wounded, sits quietly in a brand new, very well equipped ambulance. At a point he touches what looks like a wound on his left temple. He shows no reaction to that touch.

The two minute video (also here), from which the pic is taken, shows the boy being handed from the dark above to some person in a rescue jacket and carried into the ambulance. There he sits quietly, unattended, while several people take videos and pictures of him. One other kids, not obviously wounded, is then carried to the ambulance.

As the story is told:

Mahmoud Raslan, a photojournalist who captured the image, told the Associated Press that emergency workers and journalists tried to help the child, identified as 5-year-old Omran Daqneesh, along with his parents and his three siblings, who are 1, 6 and 11 years old.”We were passing them from one balcony to the other,” Raslan said, adding: “We sent the younger children immediately to the ambulance, but the 11-year-old girl waited for her mother to be rescued. Her ankle was pinned beneath the rubble.”

An internet search for “Mahmoud Raslan”, the claimed “photojournalist”, finds no other pictures or videos attributed to that name.

There are about 15 men standing around the scene and doing nothing. (Next to a “just bombed” site in a warzone? No fear of a double-tap strike?) At least two more men, besides the videographer, are taking pictures or videos.

Another kid is carried into the ambulance. In the background there is someone with a white helmet wearing a shirt of the U.S./UK financed “White Helmets” propaganda group.

An animated wounded man is walked towards the ambulance.

Like the boy, the man seems to have a wound at the upper head. But like the boy he is not bleeding at all. There is some red colored substance on his face but no blood is flowing. That is astonishing. When I rode ambulances as a first-responder, people with head wounds always bled like stuck pigs (they often messed up the car which I then had to clean). As WebMD notes:

Minor cuts on the head often bleed heavily because the face and scalp have many blood vessels close to the surface of the skin. Although this amount of bleeding may be alarming, many times the injury is not severe …

The amount of red colored substance on the boy and the man do not correspond to the amount one would expect from even a minor head wound. There are also no bandages applied or anything else that could have been used to stop an actual head wound from bleeding.

Compare the above to this recent picture from a boy in west-Aleppo. (No “western” media showed this boy and his suffering. He is not on “our side”.) The boy suffered a head wound after an improvised missile from al-Qaeda and its associates hit his neighborhood. He is in care, the bleeding has been stopped. The amount of blood on his body and soaked into his cloth is a multiple of that seen in the above pictures. The blood is also mixed with the other dirt on his face, not painted over. This looks like those patients in my ambulance. This looks real.

 

All attributes of the “boy on orange seat” scene and of the video are the same that can be found in dozens of “White Helmets” videos. It is the same theme that occurs over and over again in our picture collection Dramatic Rescue! Man With Kid Runs Towards Camera!.

I am inclined to believe that the video above is just as staged as the other “White Helmets” videos and pictures. The look of the boy’s wound is a bit more realistic than usual but the lack of bleeding, that no one attends to the boy, his non-reaction to touching the “wound” and the general setting of the video scene lets me believe that it is staged.

This new, widely distributed propaganda item comes again at a moment where al-Qaeda and its associates in Syria are in trouble. The Russian air force is hitting them in the rear area of their attack on west-Aleppo and it is hurting them badly. A “humanitarian ceasefire”, which can then be used to reorganize and resupply, is urgently needed. The propaganda helps to increase the pressure for such a demand.

Some of its sponsors want the “White Helmets” nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The organization itse lflobbies for it on its website. Has anyone else ever done such?


bigger

Have they no shame asking themselves for the prize? This right above another version of their main corporate brand attribute, a “Dramatic Rescue! Man With Kid Runs Towards Camera!” picture. Asking for a Nobel right above another staged scene?

But why not? Obama was nothing more than a marketed product when was handed the Peace Nobel. He then bombed people in seven Muslim dominated countries to dust. There is no good reason then to not give that prize to yet another propaganda tool which also wants more war.

Then again, I find a nomination for the Academy Awards, maybe in the category of “Best Marketed Fakes”, more appropriate.

‘Let them eat precaution ?’ A recipe for social darwinism, corporate malfeasance, global terrorism …

July 25, 2016

by Paul Matthews, poet & writer

«1 Nobel peace prize, 8 economists, 24 physicists, 33 chemists, 41 doctors» – and a partridge in a pear tree …

Israel's true friend 2015The Right Honourable Theresa May learns her lines as “Israel’s true friend”…

Her Majesty’s Government has never been a fan of the Precautionary Principle. Ever since the 23 December 1913 Federal Reserve Act and the ensuing two world wars, the magnates of the central banking system have a long established tradition of investing the lifeblood of nations in their disastrous Ponzi schemes. This is more than apparent as we sleepwalk our way towards open conflict with Russia and China and as UK and Israeli Jews jubilate over the choice of their favourite as the next British Prime Minister : a former financial consultant who, on two occasions, following in Manuel Valls’ footsteps, has pledged her undying allegiance to Zionism.

The dismal spectacle of an obsequious, flowerpot hatted Theresa May revelling in Israel’s 67th Independence Day (יום העצמאות‎‎) celebration in the heart of London at Finchley Synagogue, in April 2015, is a sure sign that Whitehall and Westminster will be throwing caution to the wind and their combined weight behind ploys to wash away sins committed in Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine etc. with more bloodletting as they devote their efforts to supporting NATO and the Jewish state’s daily ghoulish bloodfest in the Middle East.

Having read with interest the GMWatch reports on 107 Nobel laureates propagandising GM food, one could easily dwell on the moral turpitude of the snake oil salesmen and women who would have us leave our senses as they spin their treacherous web of deceit. But I will not waste too many words on the latest wheeze from the global PR Industry and the Monsanto-linked sponsorship of Golden Rice evangelists petitioning for the release to the environment of more hazardous recombinant DNA. One of them, pharmacologist and biochemist Alfred Goodman Gilman (1941-2015), would appear to have been on his deathbed when he put his signature to this underhand attack on our health, reason and dignity ! I also note that the only signatory who could be deemed an ‘authority on risk’ – namely Robert C. Merton – turns out to be co-director of American hedge fund management firm Long-Term Capital Management (LTCM) which, following the 1997 Asian financial crisis and the 1998 Russian financial crisis, lost all of its capital in less than four months ! We live in desperate times. I say this in the light of what we now know about horizontal gene transfer, dangerously compromised natural resources and what Edward Osborne Wilson, Richard Leakey and Roger Lewin write about the Holocene or Sixth Extinction.

It can be termed casuistry, deception, chicanery or dissembling. However shamelessly and deliberatelylying – to protect ‘special interest groups’ – is established practice among all who would ascend the greasy pole of our politically corrupt civilisation to the summit of what someone more knowledgeable than myself in such matters – namely sociology professor James Petras – calls the Zionist Power Configuration. As we know to our cost, we can never say with any confidence that the facts will speak for themselves, given the rate at which steps are taken to suppress them as the war mongers and gossip merchants in a big business friendly mass media work flat out to dumb down and conceal the truth. But why is the general public so easily spooked by appearances ?

Possibly people are mesmerised by the spectre of the Dr Strangeloves with their paws on the tiller of Western diplomacy. Nothing beguiles ordinary mortals more than the accoutrements of power and the paraphernalia of worldly success. Hence the bogus moral standing of the Nobel dynasty’s arms manufacturing concerns and the meretricious professorial stature of many prize winners, glaringly obvious once the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize was vouchsafed the war criminal Henry Kissinger ; a nauseous precedent hammered home by what Barack Hussein Obama and his presidency was to accomplish after he had been bequeathed the coveted trophy in 2009.

Then there’s the case of the 1986 Peace Nobelist, arch-zionist and horror storyteller Elie Wiesel whose recent death unearths again the whole sorry saga. Here’s an extract from a memorable article by Gilad Atzmon about

«the man who turned the Holocaust into a business career […] concerned only with the primacy of Jewish suffering and [who] has totally failed to transform the Holocaust into a universal message».

He continues :

«Wiesel is critical of Germany, German people and their culture. “We must not forget what civilized people once did. People raised on Kant, Fichte and Hegel. People who listened to Beethoven and read Schiller in the morning, and in the afternoon killed children and parents”. But what about those people who don’t read Kant, Fichte and Hegel, but instead read the Old Testament and Wiesel’s Shoa literature ? Do they not kill children and parents ? Do they not engage in mass killings of innocent civilians pouring white phosphorous on UNRA shelters ? Yes, they do – and for more than six decades, slightly longer than Wiesel’s Shoa …». November 04, 2012 / Gilad Atzmon http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/elie-wiesel-on-haaretz.html.

Wiesel is German for weasel. Out of respect for the nimble witted, slender-bodied quadruped, the comparison should stop there. As for the ‘expertise’ of the world’s most famous ‘Holocaust survivor’, he is the acclaimed author of an alleged “autobiographical eye-witness report” of events in Auschwitz and Buchenwald circa 1944-1945, in a lurid text which continues to be marketed and widely interpreted as the gospel truth regarding the Nazi concentration camps. It first came to light in 1956 when an 862-page manuscript in Yiddish was brought out in Argentina as the 245-page work Un di velt hot geshvign(Translation : And the world remained silent).

French Académicien, novelist and poet François Mauriac (1952 Nobel literature prize) was instrumental in getting Les Éditions de Minuit to publish in Paris their 178 page version as La Nuit in 1958 and in 1960Hill & Wang in New York put in print a 116-page translation as Night. It is appears in 30 languages and record sales of between six and ten million copies are chronicled. However eyebrows have been raised among thoughtful scholars as to the publisher and the author’s clearly elastic understanding of what notions like ‘autobiography’ and ‘veracity’ should or may signify, especially as unambiguous signs of ‘poetic licence’ in the work remain unacknowledged, primarily by the Romanian-born American Jewish professor and political activist, himself the writer of no less than 57 books, drafted mostly in French and English. As we shall soon see, for a number of observers, the epithet impostor would not be not too strong a term to characterise an internationally honoured dignitary who like, the Blairs and Clintons, was paid lavishly for his conferences and whose mortal remains are today pushing up daisies in Sharon Gardens cemetery, Valhalla, Westchester County, New York-cite_ref-43″> State.

Alongside Steven Spielberg, Elie Wiesel was one of the ten or so, mostly Jewish, celebrities and socialites, who lost millions to the Jewish American fraudster Bernie Madoff, speculating with their life savings or money from one or other of their ‘foundations’. Late in life the person whom POTUS Obama termed ‘the conscience of the world’ was tackled over glaring discrepancies in his narrative and accused of being overly economical with the truth. He kept his counsel – to the end – apparently in denial, believing he could take his secret to the grave. However alongside the tributes and obituaries in the minutes, days and weeks following his death at his home in Manhattan, the internet has been alive with questions and remarks casting doubts on the official storyline.

The above suspicion ‘Shoah filmmaker’, Claude Lanzmann – quoted a reliable eye witness, Nobel Laureate in Literature in 2002, Hungarian Jew Imre Kertész – who survived deportation to Auschwitz and Buchenwald – to infer that Elie Weisel could not have spent more than four days and four nights in Auschwitz, before moving to Buchenwald. More compelling testimony comes from another Hungarian Jew deported to both aforementioned concentration camps. Nikolaus (Miklós) Grüner writes in his personal account ‘Stolen Identity’ that the universally famous would-be deportee born in 1928 in Sighet – a town in the Carpathian mountains of northern Transylvania – was unfamiliar with Hungarian and that, for the purposes of his ‘autobiography’, he usurped the number A-7713.

Moreover according to the Auschwitz archives themselves the number A-7713 was in fact allocated to an older man on 24 May 1944. His name : Hungarian-born Jew, Lázár Wisel (né at Marmaroasieget, Hungary, 1916). With his older brother, Abraham, he was to take the young Nikolaus (Miklós) Grüner (né 4 or 6 April 1928 at Nyiregihaza, Hungary) – then aged fifteen – under his wing. The existence, dates and places of birth of all three internees are attested by documents stored at the Polish State Museum of Auschwitz-Birkenau at Oświęcim.

Nikolaus (Miklós) Grüner had every reason to remember the number A-7713. In 1986, living in Australia, he was contacted by an employee of the Swedish magazine Sydsvenska Dagbladet in Malmö and invited to meet the latest nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize – someone named Elie Wiesel. He believed at the time that he was about to meet Lázár Wisel and rejoiced at the prospect of being reunited with his old friend. The encounter, as is customary for Nobels, took place at the grand Hôtel Savojen in Stockholm in December 1986. Miklos recalls :

«…I was very happy at the idea of meeting Lázár but when I confronted the so-called “Eli Wiesel”, I was stunned to see a man I did not recognize at all, who did not even speak Hungarian or Yiddish and instead he was speaking English in a strong French accent. Therefore our meeting was over in about ten minutes. As a goodbye gift, the man gave me his book entitled “Night” of which he claimed to be the author. I accepted the book I did not know at that time but told everyone there that this man was not the person he pretended to be !».

Elie Wiesel declined to show him the tattoo on his forearm. Yet Primo Levi writes, on page 27 of the US edition

of his indelible 1947 work, Se questo è un uomo ( ‘If this is a man’), that every prisoner had to have a tattoo :

«It seems that this is the real, true initiation : only by showing one’s number can one get bread and soup». Primo Levi If this is a man Abacus 2001

Available on Youtube in 2010, but no longer, video images of the bare armed Elie Wiesel filmed for a full-length documentary in 1996 in Romania appear to reveal no tattoo at all. So the question, never answered, remains : without a tattoo how did he survive in 1944-1945 ? It seems that the indefatigable public speaker once aired his ‘tattoo’ to an Israeli journalist, who subsequently met Nikolaus (Miklos) Grüner and who, when asked, replied that he had been unable to read the number and that he did not believe it really was a tattoo.

All of which is hotly contested by associates of Elie Wiesel, like Michaël de Saint-Cheron, who deem such testimony to amount to blasphemy, but offer no proof in support of their arguments. Instead one is regaled by displays of emotional blackmail or worse, as Italy joins the long list of NATO affiliated countries that punish ‘thought crime’ with prison sentences. Legitimate criticism of the homicidal Jewish state is thus muzzled by privately orchestrated smear campaigns, prohibitively costly SLAPP type legal actions, backstairs pressure to intimidate and stifle open public debate in favour of free speech and religious tolerance for every living soul and not just for that microscopically small minority opinion seeking to bring to heel every critic of Israel.

As the French epistemologist Lucien Cerise intimates in : Neuro-pirates – Réflexions sur l’ingénierie sociale (Kontre Kulture 2016 q.v.), evidence-based inquiry has moved on to the shifting sands of devotional faith and cultural dogma. It’s a question of who’s got the power and money to inflict the cognitive dissonance, captious reasoning, hairsplitting – the Hebrew term for which is pilpul (פלפול) from “pepper,” loosely meaning “sharp analysis” – ie what underpins the massive social-engineering daily assaulting our neuronal architecture.

It will not have escaped your attention that the gloves are off ever since Hillary Clinton declared the USA was losing the global information war in 2011. The academic climate today is replete with intellectual terrorism and diligently orchestrated psychological operations (psyops), as dissident Jews and non-Jews alike are plied with accusations of antisemitism and death threats. Having to sacrifice one’s means of livelihood, in defence of one’s views is another major risk. As evinced by the experience of Nikolaus (Miklós) Grüner himself and of Norman (Ich bin Der Stürmer ?) Finkelstein, the American Jewish political scientist, activist, professor and author whose primary fields of research are Israel’s occupation of Palestine and Holocaust politics, an interest motivated by filial intimacy with the deep moral convictions and the personal ordeals of his parents both of whom survived in the Warsaw Ghetto and periods in the Majdanek and Auschwitz concentration camps.

To get a measure of the man you can watch his contribution to Defamation (Hebrew: השמצה‎‎), a powerful 2009 documentary by award-winning Israeli cinéaste Yoav Shamir. The sequences were filmed in Chicago on the shores of Lake Michigan, before Norman Finkelstein was dislodged from his DePaul University tenure, following intense pressure from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B’nai B’rith and Alan Dershowitz.

A member of the ‘Herem Club‘, whose membership includes Uriel_da_Costa, Baruch_Spinoza, Paul Eisen, Jacob Cohen, Gilad Atzmon, he authored The Holocaust Industry : Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering (2000). In this he argues that Elie Wiesel et al. have patented ‘victimhood’ as an exclusively Jewish phenomenon, capitalising on the memory of what European Jewry went through in WWII as an ‘ideological weapon’. He calls the Holocaust a ‘shakedown’ and a ‘straight-out extortion racket’ – that has milked Germany and more recently France for all they are worth – enabling Israel, ‘one of the world’s most formidable military powers, with a horrendous human rights record, [to] cast itself as a victim state’, thereby providing what is a suffocatingly self-righteous haven of National Zionism with ‘immunity to criticism’ … and a licence to kill.

Given the ‘nature of the beast’, the degree of ‘thought control’ and the vast corrupting power and influence of a tentacular Jewish lobby on US foreign and domestic policies – revealed by Norman Finkelstein himself and in a study by Professors John J Mearsheimer and Stephen M Walt (q.v. infra), self censorship – induced by an albeit genuine fear of judicial retribution – preclude a robust appraisal of the problems raised by these issues.

I argue that we need to think seriously about what many citizens – for both the best and worst possible reasons – consider a distinctly taboo subject : namely the way Jewish tribalism or identity politics and today’s obsession with pedigree and DNA are closely associated and how much cultural bias – that manacles genuine research – for example in epigenetics or environmental factors – is fostered by the élitism and funding from a minority whose religious traditions predispose them to think excessively in terms of blood ties, heredity and genetics.

People identified as Jewish Americans make up less than 2 % of the population, yet represent up to 48 % of US billionaires. It will therefore come as a surprise to nobody – as Meersheimer and Walt point out – that :

«Israel has been the largest annual recipient of direct US economic and military assistance since 1976 and the largest total recipient since World War II […] Israel is the only recipient that does not have to account for how the aid is spent, an exemption that makes it virtually impossible to prevent the money from being used for purposes the United States opposes, like building settlements in the West …».Mearsheimer and Walt pages 30-31.

While Britain’s many Labour, Conservative and LibDem Friends of Israel aren’t Jewish, Stuart Littlewood draws an alarming picture of this over-representation by the organised Jewish community in British politics :

«The Jewish Chronicle has published a list of Jewish MPs in Britain’s parliament. It names 24 – Conservatives 12, Labour 10 and Liberal Democrats two. I thought it was more. But let us for the sake of argument accept the Jewish Chronicle’s figures. The Jewish population in the UK is 280,000 or 0.46 per cent. There are 650 seats in the House of Commons so, as a proportion, Jewish entitlement is only three seats. The conclusion is pretty obvious. With 24 seats, Jews are eight times over-represented. Which means, of course, that other groups must be under-represented, including Muslims…If Muslims, for instance, were over-represented to the same extent as the Jews (i.e. eight times) they’d have 200 seats. All hell would break loose …». 21st May 2010 / Stuart Littlewood http://www.redressonline.com/2010/05/jews-eight-times-over-represented-in-uk-parliament/.

Which brings us to the messianic supremacist agenda of GMOs and the Genetic Literacy Project of GLS team leader Jon Entine whose work in my view reflects an unhealthy interest in élitist, socially divisive, ‘high tech’ quick fixes, unsafe palliative solutions – synthetic biology, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, chemical and genetic engineering – sociocidal ventures comparable to the ethnic cleansing now balkanising the Holy Lands under the aegis of Bernard Lewis and his ‘clash of civilisations’. One recalls the bloodcurdling and vindictive purple prose of Deuteronomy and Joshua. I kid you not. Fanatical hatred of Gentiles in parts of the Hebrew Bible and some Talmudic Scriptures is well documented. The GLS philosophy is likewise transhumanist in its espousal of a misanthropic, quasi-religious creed, endorsing an eradicative use of ‘life sciences’ and a deadly capital intensive precision agriculture : both highly valued WMDs in the oligarchy’s divide and rule toolbox.

The photo taken in January 2015 on the premises of the British Board of Deputies – down the road from the Emirates Stadium and Holloway Prison – of an otherwise perfectly non-Jewish Right Honourable Madame Home Secretary proclaiming she is kosher sums up the pack of lies one is expected to swallow in a day’s perusal of the world news and current affairs. France is likewise held hostage by the pro-Israel Atlanticists.

Despite the UKUSA_Agreement‘s ECHELON /Five Eyes (FVEY) and the Frenchelon system, this banana republic’s intelligence services are unable to protect inhabitants and visitors from the carnage of Paris and Nice. Just as French farming is hijacked by the big business community, government and mass media outlets are the useful idiots of a PR machine abusing the population with torrents of disinformation, islamophobia and russophobia, the unquestioning allegiance to NATO in accordance with a praetorian Loi Fabius-Gayssot.

Enacted on 13 July 1990, when the nation was in holiday mode, this law makes it a criminal offence to query the existence, nature or size of the category of crimes against humanity as defined in the London Charter of 1945, on the basis of which Nazi leaders were executed in a frenzy of ‘victor’s justice’ (Siegerjustiz) a form of lex talionis (Cf. International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg in 1945-46 art.9). What this signifies for serious students of history is that key aspects of WWII have been sealed in a judicial vault and the key thrown away.

East of Covent Garden, south of Clerkenwell, west of Whitechapel, north of the Thames, St Paul’s Cathedral no longer stands out on the summit of Ludgate Hill. The City of London’s once historic skyline features now a bewildering array of steel, glass and concrete. Gone are the traces of The Blitz and the massive Provisional IRA truck bombs of the 1990s. The hub of Britain’s international financial services industry accommodates a very small resident population of about 7,000 and a daily influx of over 300,000 commuters on weekdays.

Its pseudo medieval coat of arms evinces a puerile infatuation with The Crusades with sword, shield, crested helmet, a Cross of Saint George, silver dragons, underlined by a 17th century Latin motto Domine nos dirige (‘O Lord, guide us’). Despite the appeal to the deity, this onshore bailiwick’s core business activity resides in maintaining and developing a global network of tax havens that plunder vast amounts of public resources.

The City resembles no other statutory body except perhaps the dual legal entity of the Vatican and the Holy See. Derided as Britain’s ‘last rotten borough’, the falsely patriotic, deeply conservative, ‘local authority’, that runs the tiny municipal enclave peripheral to London’s metropolis, brooks no external oversight. The Post-Brexit talk is of the ‘Asian pivot’ as Mexican standoffs cascade from NATO’s witches brew of containment policies on the borders of Russia, in Sudan and the South China Sea and further moves are made in the geopolitical -firstHeading2″>sphere to uncouple the debt merchants and investment banks from the reality of ordinary people’s lives to forge a global 100% unaccountable offshore economy. Communities at the business end of the Square Mile’s unpleasantly sharp practices may indeed see their high brow tormentors as servants of the Antichrist. Maybe those seeking out the Synagogue of Satan twice voiced in the Book of the Apocalypse need look no further. Either way full spectrum dominance is required to protect this global empire from the infidels and unbelievers who challenge a world order of would be divine rights authorised to trade in murder and mayhem and govern by chaos. Ezra Pound was made a political prisoner for 13 years for daring to think and say such things. Writers, economists and historians like Carroll Quigley, Eustace Mullins, Antony C. Sutton and others who refuse to play the rôle of gatekeepers to the central banking system’s japes are likewise ostracised as extremists and conspiracy theorists.

«To make the history of antisemitism complete, omitting none of the manifestations of this sentiment and following its divers phases and modifications, it is necessary to go into the history of Israel since its dispersion, or, more properly speaking, since the beginning of its expansion beyond the boundaries of Palestine. Wherever the Jews settled after ceasing to be a nation ready to defend its liberty and independence, one observes the development of antisemitism, or rather anti-Judaism; for antisemitism is an ill chosen word, which has its raison d’être only in our day, when it is sought to broaden this strife between the Jew and the Christians by supplying it with a philosophy and a metaphysical, rather than a material reason. If this hostility, this repugnance had been shown towards the Jews at one time or in one country only, it would be easy to account for the local causes of this sentiment. But this race has been the object of hatred with all the nations amidst whom it ever settled. Inasmuch as the enemies of the Jews belonged to divers races, as they dwelled far apart from one another, were ruled by different laws and governed by opposite principles; as they had not the same customs and differed in spirit from one another, so that they could not possibly judge alike of any subject, it must needs be that the general causes of antisemitism have always resided in Israel itself, and not in those who antagonized it. This does not mean that justice was always on the side of Israel’s persecutors, or that they did not indulge in all the extremes born of hatred; it is merely asserted that the Jews were themselves, in part, at least, the cause of their own ills …».

(Top of page 5 in this translated edition http://solargeneral.org/wp-content/uploads/library/anti-semitism-its-history-and-causes-bernard-lazare.pdf).

French Jewish literary critic, political journalist, polemicist, anarchist, who was among the first Dreyfusards, Bernard Lazare (1865-1903) wrote the most authorative account of the causes and history of antisemitism and for that reason is treated as a pariah by today’s Jewish community.

To avoid any possible misunderstanding here is the Merriam-Webster’s dictionary simple definition of Jew :

«Someone whose religion is Judaism, who is descended from Jewish people, or who participates in the culture surrounding Judaism».

The Merriam-Webster dictionary’s full definition of Jew qualifies this with a series of subsets :

«1a : a member of the tribe of Judah

b : israelite (person who was born in or who lived in the ancient kingdom of Israel : descendant of the Hebrew patriarch Jacob ;

specifically : a native or inhabitant of the ancient northern kingdom of Israel. As opposed to the kingdom of Judah).

  1. 2 : a member of a nation existing in Palestine from the sixth century B.C. to the first century A.D.
  2. 3: a person belonging to a continuation through descent or conversion of the ancient Jewish people
  3. 4: one whose religion is Judaism …». Source : Simple and Full Definitions of Jewhttp://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Jew.

NB The Jewish calendar is lunar and Judaism should not be conflated with Talmudism. Jewish identity is awarded to anybody who converts to Judaism or whose mother is Jewish and who, as such, participates in the secular or religious culture arising from Jewish history and Judaism. Matrilineal descent still is the rule within Orthodox Judaism, which believes that anyone with a Jewish mother is endowed with an irrevocable Jewish status. Note that ‘born-again Londoner’ Gilad Atzon has renounced both his Israeli citizenship and his Jewishness. He has also abandoned all hope of ever being reunited with his foreskin ! Wth the emergence of Jewish denominations, opinion within the wider Jewish community is divided over the question of matrilineal and patrilineal descent, with Reform Judaism in the USA officially adopting a bilineal policy since 1983.

Zionist Antichrist will rule the NWO’ Aug 1, 2011https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oq0_n7ZBX_c. ‘Eustace Mullins was the most dangerous man in the world’ according to FBI director Hoover. He found out too much that people in power would prefer to remain hidden so they could continue their dirty work unhindered. Author of The Secrets of The Federal Reserve (1953) he speaks of Ezra Pound’s four protégés, three of them becoming Nobel Literature Prize winners : WB Yeats (1923), Ernest Hemingway (1954). TS Eliot (1948) James Joyce. Predictably, because of what he revealed about ‘centralised banking’, he is pigeonholed as an ‘American antisemitic writer and Holocaust denier’.

«To come into the world is not a great deal for most of us. No questions asked and no entry permit to be agreed, but the actual ceremony that is waiting for one, can make one or do one in. But sometimes the delivery gets out of balance and then one can get the shortest straw and be sentenced to bear the Jewish faith. That is when the trouble starts. Unfortunately one can’t turn back, one can only proceed to bear the sentence that is one for all and all for one, which makes one to be a bloody Jew».

«Miko Peled is from a famous and influential Israeli Zionist family and was born in Jerusalem. Miko’s father was a famous general in the Israeli army. Miko too has served his time there. When his niece was killed in a Palestinian suicide bomb attack, his family surprisingly placed the blame squarely on the state of Israel. They believed it was the torture, violence and forced eviction from their homes that was driving Palestinians to commit suicide to fight back. In this honest, ground breaking talk Peled reveals the truth about the terror state of Israel. His talk is based on his father’s insider knowledge on the Israeli war of terror, coupled with his own research. Many Jews and Israel supporters will be deeply shaken by this expose. Some facts from his talk are that the returning Jews are not the original expelled Jews, nor their descendants. He also reveals that until 1947 when Israel launched their illegal terrorist attacks on the people of Palestine, there was no conflict. Miko Peled is one of many modern day Jews who are standing up to the Zionist state of Israel.

Coalition of the Willing’ Promotes No Fly Zone

Syrian Regime Solidifies Recent Gains
Feb 23, 2014,
Syrian Army-Valentine

Franklin Lamb
Damascus

Al-manar

Since around Valentine Day and aided by truly magnificent warm weather for this time of year, the dozens of parks in Damascus have been receiving unusually large numbers of visitors, not least of whom are Syrian soldiers on leave, enjoying the green space with girlfriends, families and friends. At the large garden with dozen of benches and sculptures, called Al-Manshia (Presidents Bridge) public park, and located between two five-star hotels, the Dama Rose and the 4-Seasons, some soldiers, presumably from out of town and with many appearing utterly exhausted, can be seen simply laying on the grass fast asleep under the warm healing sunshine.

Soldiers joke, laugh and seem pleased when citizens approach them to offer their thanks for the army’s service to the Syrian Arab Republic and to inquire about how things are going personally and if there is some help the citizen might offer the soldier. Such is the nature of Syrian nationalism and connection with Mother Syria that this observer has remarked about before and is strikingly rare from his experience. I love my country but frankly do not feel the pride and deep connection that Syrians appear to exhibit about their country’s 10,000 year history as the cradle of civilization. I would defend my country and fight for it if there were to be a legitimate war which frankly has not been the case in my lifetime.

Over the past 30 months of frequent visits to Damascus, the city has never appeared more ‘normal’. Last night this observer was up all night reading and there was not one bombing run or mortar or artillery fire to he heard, a first for more than two years. For many months, I used to avoid the historic Al-Hamidiyah Souk, the largest and the central souk in Syria located inside the old walled city of Damascus next to the Umayyad Mosque, despite its hundreds of interesting shops. The reason I tended to stay away was because I was one of very few people meandering among the warren of stalls and felt self-conscious when shopkeepers would plead with me to buy something-anything to help feed their families many of whom lived near the labyrinth.

Today, Al-Hamidiyah Souk, if not frequented with the numbers of shoppers and visitors as it was before March 2011, it is nonetheless very crowded such that foreigners can pass unnoticed…well, sometimes for at least the first hundred yards or so. In Damascene neighborhoods, no longer do citizens quickly disappear into their homes at the first sign of dusk but the streets and many cafes are crowded well past 9 p.m.

“Quo Vadis Syrie”, (‘where is Syria heading’) one Damascus University classics major, turned international law student, asked this visitor as we both sat on the steps of the Law Faculty while enjoying a bit of sun yesterday afternoon. “Is our crisis nearly over so we can start re-building Mother Syria or do our enemies have other plans to destroy us? I worry that today’s calm will soon disappear with an arriving hurricane.” His comment was perhaps triggered by a certain sense here and more widely elsewhere that a forming “coalition of the willing” appears to be pressing for a ‘humanitarian’ No Fly Zone. Some American allies envisage and are making plans to implement, a NFZ stretching up to 25 miles into Syria which would be enforced using aircraft flown from Jordanian bases and flying inside the kingdom, according to Congressional sources.

Any NFZ would be very different from what is currently being promoted and advertised by certain war-mongers in Washington, Tel Aviv and several European capitals as well as among elements of the Gulf Cooperation Council and the League of Arab States. Post Round Two of Geneva II, the White House and the usual “bomb the bastards” coterie  in Congress and among the US Zionist lobby, are said to be re-thinking the idea of a No Fly Zone (NFZ) for Syria. It would be planned and executed with US and a yet to be specified, “Coalition of the willing” using aircraft now at the ready in Jordan and Turkey to begin with.

Ranking with the fake “non-lethal aid” concept, in terms of cynical deception (virtually all “non-lethal” aid is indeed lethal for its facilitates certain forces killing others including night goggles, telecommunication equipment, GPS equipment, salaries, fake IDs and much else), a limited, ‘humanitarian’ NFZ would almost certainly became a bomb anything/person that moves ‘turkey shoot’ as was the case in Libya in 2011 as was studied and witnessed first-hand by this an many other observers. What we observed in the then, but no more, Al Jamahiriya (state of the masses), was that the misnomer ‘limited humanitarian Responsibility to Protect’ (R2P) promoted by Obama Administration UN Ambassador Susan Rice for Libya and now by her predecessor Samatha Power for Syria, was that a NFZ means essentially an all-out war for regime change at all costs in terms of expendable lives and treasury.

The Libya experience, conceding many differences between the two countries and their governments and quality of each country’s military, may be prologue for Syria. Backed by a U.N. Security Council mandate, NATO charged into Libya citing its urgent “responsibility to protect” civilians threatened by claimed bloody rampages occurring across the country. Within days, we witnessed the ‘limited carefully vetted’ targets bank turn from a promoted ‘several dozen purely military targets” into more than 10,000 bomb runs using over 7,700 ‘precision guided bombs” and from the ground and what we learned during weeks in Libya by victims and eye-witnesses it seemed at times that the targets were basically anything that moved or looked like it might have a conceivable military purpose of some sort.

Human Rights Watch documented nearly 100 cases of civilians being bombed and killed as part of the R2P campaign. Other estimates are several times the HRW published figures. To this day Libyan civilians and demanding to know from NATO, “Why did you destroy my home and kill my family?” No answer has to date been provided to the Libyan victims’ families despite investigations that showed NATO pilots frequently disregarded instructions and “we essentially bombed at if we were playing video games” according to post-conflict contrite  British airman.

Susan Rice, now Obama’s national security adviser, met with Saudi officials last week to discuss a NFZ and related strategy despite White House claims that it is still skeptical. Rice told the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee late last month that the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are working together again on Syria policy after a year of occasional bitter disagreement.

Among those currently petitioning the Obama Administration for a NFZ, which would quickly devolve into thousands of bomb runs across Syria that would likely decimate its air force and tank corps are the so-called ‘rebels.’  They tend to agree with France that problems lay ahead for them given April’s fast approaching Presidential election, in which the incumbent President, Bashar Assad, is likely to seek and win re-election.

In addition, Israel, according to a Congressional source, has offered to help ‘behind the scenes” with airbases if needed and certain activities along the southern Syrian border with occupied Palestine. A majority of Arab League countries, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) plus Turkey, France, the UK and some members of the EU also support the NFZ idea. Saudi Arabia has already approved large quantities of Chinese man-portable air defense systems or Manpads as well as antitank guided missiles from Russia and more cash to help rebels oust the Assad regime, according to an Arab diplomat. Meanwhile, the US has upped its contribution to pay the salaries of preferred rebel fighters.

Ominously, the U.S. has already positioned Patriot air defense batteries and F-16 fighter aircraft in Jordan, which would be integral to any no-fly zone.  The U.S. planes have air-to-air missiles that could destroy Syrian planes from long ranges. But officials have advised Congress that aircraft may be required to enter deep into Syrian air space if threatened by advancing Syrian planes. This could easily lead to all-out war with Syria and if Russia decides to provide advanced, long-range S-300 air defense weapons to Syria, it would make such a limited no-fly zone far more risky for U.S. pilots and it’s anyone’s guess what would happen next.

President Obama so far is keeping his own counsel as his Secretaries of Defense and State, current and former, and many other officials and politicians offer their advice for the White House ordering a NFZ. Hilary Clinton and General David Petraeus reportedly both favor a NFZ to ‘end this mess” in the words of the retired CIA Director.

To his great credit, Barack Obama appears so far  to many on Capitol Hill to be reluctant to give formal approval to another NFZ as he was last summer when he resisted calls to launch a war against Syria as well as Congressional war-monger demands to go to war with Iran on behalf of the Netanyahu government. This week Mr. Obama acknowledged that diplomatic efforts to resolve the Syrian conflict are far from achieving their goals. “But the situation is fluid and we are continuing to explore every possible avenue including diplomacy.”

If President Obama extends his record of putting American interests first to three key decisions over the past six months, and if he sticks with diplomacy rather than launch all-out war with Syria, and potentially the allies of Damascus, via a NFZ, he just may be on his way to earning his prematurely awarded Nobel Prize.

Mairead Maguire Nominates Mother Agnes Mariam and Mussalaha Peace and Reconciliation movement, Syria, for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize

Mother Agnes Mariam of the Cross with Mairead Maguire speaking in London on behalf of “Save the Children of Syria” yesterday

Mother Agnes Mariam of the Cross with Mairead Maguire speaking in London on behalf of “Save the Children of Syria” yesterday
Mother Agnes Mariam of the Cross (civil name Fadia Laham) and the Mussalaha Reconciliation Initiative in Syria, has been nominated by Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate, for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.
In her letter to Nobel Institute, Mairead Maguire said:
‘At a time when the world so desperately needs to see a peaceful way forward to end the bloodshed and Conflict in Syria the Mussalaha initiative stands out as a beacon of hope showing us a better way forward, one which comes from within Syrian Society and expresses the spontaneous desire of the majority of Syrians for a peaceful path, a way forward that departs from violence and embraces a future where differences are resolved in an atmosphere of mutual respect that preserves the historic fraternity of the Syrian people. The Mussalaha initiative is an outstanding example of the resilient spirit of the Syrian people and their innate ability to resolve their difficulties, by themselves, even in the most tragic and exceptional of circumstances, we have a duty to support their work in every way possible.
Mussalaha, which translates as reconciliation, is a community-based non-violent popular initiative stemming from within Syrian civil society. Founded at the community level, it includes members of all Syria’s ethnic and religious communities who are tired of the war. Mussalaha fills a void created by the noise of weapons; it does not side with any of the warring parties, rather it embraces all. The movement says no to the continued loss of life, and yes to a nonviolent solution. The initiative says no to civil war and rejects all forms of sectarian violence and denominational strife. Its founding session was a peace congress held almost two years ago on 25th January, 2012, in the Sahara complex on the Syrian coast.
As a guest of the Mussalaha Initiative I visited Syria in May of 2013 where I met a few of the millions of refugees and internally displaced people whose lives have been torn apart by the ongoing conflict in that country. I learned from those I spoke to, both within the government and in opposition groups, that while there is a legitimate movement calling for long overdue reform in Syria, it is one of peaceful non-violence and that the worst acts of violence are being perpetrated by outside groups who strive to incite inter-communal division and discord. Extremist groups from around the world have converged upon Syria, bent on turning conflict into one of ideological hatred. The Mussalaha Initiative has worked diligently to stem this flow of violence and heal the wounds inflicted on the social fabric of the country.
Over the last two years the Mussalaha Initiative has worked in mediation and negotiation often crossing lines of conflict in the most difficult and life threatening of circumstances. Many abducted people have been freed, prisoner swaps facilitated, humanitarian aid supplied without discrimination, evacuation of civilians from conflict zones made possible, and disarmament of local opposition fighters peacefully facilitated.
Principle among those who have worked tirelessly for this peace initiative is Mother Agnes Mariam, with courage and conviction she has been an outspoken advocate of peace, a voice seeking justice and one which has consistently called on the international community to recognize the truth with regard to what is happening in Syria. Mother Agnes Mariam’s astute observations which discredited the video evidence offered by the United States, as proof of an alleged chemical gas attack in East Ghouta, contributed to help forstall what would have proved a regionally devastating external military intervention in Syria. This heroic peacemaker has thought nothing of placing her own life on the lines for the sake of others and at great personal risk, she personally brokered a cease-fire between rebels and the Syrian authorities in Moadamiya, Damascus province. This work facilitated the transfer of over 5,000 civilians from a besieged opposition area and included the voluntary surrender of over 500 men many of whom had been armed opposition combatants.
In making this nomination for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, I believe that there is no military or paramilitary solution to the Syrian conflict and only through dialogue and negotiation can peace be reached. We urgently need a peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria. Mother Agnes Mariam and the Mussalaha Initiative in Syria exemplify all that is remarkable about the resilience of humanity when faced with unbelievable adversity. The Mussalaha initiative which unites people of all faiths, and none, and ethnic backgrounds, deserves to be nurtured supported and fully recognized for the enormous contribution it has made, and continues to make in saving lives, and in directing all Syrians towards the path of peace.

Al-Assad: Geneva 2 might Not Be Held, Hamas Betrayed Us, KSA The State of Tribes

Published Monday, October 14, 2013
Damascus – It is remarkable how much Russia occupies the strategy of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. He seems very reassured by the Russian role, but stresses that the Russians are not defending Syria as much as they are ultimately defending themselves.

During a recent meeting with visitors at the presidential palace, including Al-Akhbar, Assad recalls a meeting he held in 2005 with President Vladimir Putin. At the time, the Syrian president told his host that he felt the Cold War still existed. Putin agreed, but tackled the question from a different angle: “True, it is a war,” he said, “but it is a cultural war between the East and the West.” This is a conviction that the Syrian president shares.

Assad believes that Syria’s security and stability can be protected by politics over weaponry. He reckons that international equilibrium is the best guarantee, citing the three Russian-Chinese vetoes during the Syrian crisis as proof.

The Syrian president does not regret giving up chemical weapons. He maintains that their capacity for deterrence has expired for three reasons:

First, Syria’s missile arsenal has made huge strides, so deterrence can now be established from the first moments of the war. This, he said, eliminated the need for chemical weapons, which can only be used as a last resort if the enemy deploys nuclear weapons.

Second, Assad continues, huge progress has been made in the past two decades in countering the military effectiveness of chemical weapons, meaning, their effect is largely psychological.

For example, the Syrian president went on to say, whenever there is a spike in tension, we see Israel distributing gas masks to its scared citizens, but when the weapons are used, their effects can be treated with relative ease. The proof, Assad purports, lies with the five Syrian soldiers who, hurt in an opposition attack using chemical weapons, were treated with shots and quickly returned to the battlefield.

Consequently, Assad says that Syria suspended production of chemical weapons in 1997, replacing them with conventional weapons, which he believes are the decisive element in the battlefield. Assad explains that he built the armament structure of his army based on missiles, saying, “It is enough to lay down fire on Israel’s airports to paralyze it,” since, as is known, Israel’s strength lies with its air force.

Third, chemical weapons are obsolete because the war is now internal.

No doubt, there was a moral and political loss in handing over the chemical weapons, according to Assad. In 2003, Damascus proposed ridding the Middle East of all weapons of mass destruction. Syrian chemical weapons were a bargaining chip whose price was the Israeli nuclear weapons arsenal. But today, the price has changed. It was agreed that the Syrian chemical weapons would be handed over in return for sparing the country a Western military strike.

Even the manufacture of conventional weapons, which was aimed at countering Israel, is now aimed at internal enemies, which can be counted as another loss, Assad says. Regarding the Nobel Peace Prize awarded recently to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Assad quips, “The prize should have been mine.”

Goodbye, Geneva

Assad does not believe that Geneva II will be held, even if scheduled for November. Perhaps the proposed peace conference will be held only to appease Russia, which is seeking to ward off the specter of war.

Assad says that Syria has no qualms attending, and that its only demand is clear and based on two principles: elections and ending support for terrorists. “Whenever we kill 1,000 terrorists, 2,000 more terrorists enter the country,” Assad says.

The West’s problem, according to the Syrian president, is that the faction it supports is fragmented and has no control on the ground. The Free Syrian Army (FSA) is almost done for, he says. Its fighters have either abandoned it to join Islamic groups, or have joined the government and are now fighting in the ranks of the Syrian army. Nothing is left of the forces supported by the West and the Gulf except terrorists, who have no place in Geneva II, Assad adds.

The problem, from Assad’s point of view, lies with the other side, specifically the West. Those that the West can bring to the conference, he says, have no control on the ground, and as for those who have control on the ground, the West has no influence over them. He recalls that Lakhdar Brahimi came to him one time, carrying an American assessment stating that there were 2,000 militant groups fighting in Syria. When the Syrian president asked him what his own estimate was, Brahimi said 1,200. So, Assad asks: Who can control all these groups and guarantee they would implement any political agreement?

Foreigners Are Better Than the Arabs


Assad is bitter. “Not one Arab official has contacted us with a plan for mediation or for an Arab solution,” he says. The Arabs, he says, were always only an echo of their Western “masters,” if not worse.

The Syrian president adds that the West, despite all its flaws, “Always dealt with us more honorably than some Arabs.” Kofi Annan was honest and resigned, he remarks, while his Arab aides were not.

Assad stresses that this issue will be dealt with after the crisis. He does not want to handle it emotionally like Muammar Gaddafi did when he pivoted to Africa. Assad is adamant about Syria’s Arab identity, but does not see this as something necessarily linked to the Arab League. The framework of this identity, in practice and in form, shall be determined later, according to the president.

Progress on the Field


Assad seems reassured by the progress of military operations. He says the war follows a hit-and-run pattern, where his army regains control of some territories while losing others, and so on. However, Assad adds, if we consider the general course things have been taking, we would find that the Syrian army is clearly advancing.

In the same vein, the Syrian president highlights two particular problems: Daraa and the Jordanian front on the one hand, and the north, on the other hand. In the first, Assad says that fighters and weapons continue to flow from Jordan, regardless of whether this was being staged by the Jordanian regime or Gulf countries. As for the second, specifically in Aleppo near the border with Turkey, Turkish support has kept the front hot. “But the Turks have a problem now, after al-Qaeda seized the crossing,” Assad says, adding that there are no intractable problems in the rest of the regions.

Assad denies categorically the reports circulated a few days ago, holding that Abbas Zaki, member of Fatah’s central committee, had brought him a message from the new emir of Qatar. Interestingly, beyond the reporter’s question about this issue, Assad did not mention Qatar again in the interview. Khaled Meshaal and his team in Doha figured more in our conversation with the Syrian president, in fact.

Hamas’ ‘Betrayal’

Mishaal Raised the FSA Flag by Mistake. Thus Claimed Mosa Abu Marzouk in an interview With al-Mayadin to aired tonight
By Mistake!!!!!

The conversation moves to Hamas when the president is asked about the reports regarding Meshaal’s visit to Tehran, and whether Damascus, specifically the presidential palace, would be his next stop. But Assad is keen on clarifying everything in this regard, ending all equivocation.

First, Assad says that the Muslim (American) Brotherhood, for 80 years, has been known for its opportunism and betrayal, but stresses that Damascus did not treat Hamas in the beginning as being part of the international Islamist organization. “The Europeans would come to us and ask what Hamas was doing here, and we would say that it was a resistance movement,” the Syrian president says, adding that only that capacity made Syria welcome and sponsor Hamas.

Assad says, “When the crisis began, [Hamas officials] claimed that they gave us advice. This is a lie. Who are they to give Syria advice? Then they said that we asked for their help, which is also not true. What business do they have in internal Syrian affairs?”

Later, the president of the World Federation of Muslim Scholars, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, made his insulting statements about Syria. Assad says, “Yes, we demanded that they take a stance. A while later, they came and said that they spoke with Qaradawi. We said that those who want to take a political stance should do so publicly. What value does a stance have if taken in closed rooms?”

Estrangement between Hamas and the Syrian regime ensued. Assad holds that Hamas ultimately decided to abandon resistance and to fully merge with the Muslim Brotherhood. He adds, “This was not the first time they had betrayed us. It happened before in 2007 and 2009. Their history is one of treachery and betrayal.” Assad then wished “someone would persuade them to return to being a resistance movement,” but says that he doubts this will happen. “Hamas has sided against Syria from day one. They have made their choice,” he adds.

Oddly, Walid Jumblatt and US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns suddenly slip into the conversation, when Assad is asked whether he would receive Meshaal. “Don’t rule out seeing Jumblatt here,” he jokes.

Assad then recalls how Burns came to visit him before the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Burns presented Assad with a list of demands to facilitate the military operations against Iran, including allowing US warplanes to cross Syrian airspace, telling him that no one would notice. Assad’s answer was simple: “You are a government with no principles, and you pursue your foreign policy on commercial bases. Give us a deal, and we will see if it is in our interests and we will show it to the Syrian people.”

Assad is clearly still wounded by Hamas’ actions. But he keeps the door open to all possibilities if Syria’s interests require making certain rapprochements. In the end, he says, politics is about both principles and interests.

Iraq: Relations Are Very Good

“[Iraq’s] stance has been very good from the beginning,” he says. Assad stresses that he’s not only talking about Baghdad, but also Iraqi Kurdistan. Though Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari expressed some extreme positions, Assad says, Iraq’s stance remains “very good.”

Meanwhile, Damascus has been closely monitoring the situation in Egypt. Assad asserts, “Egypt is the fortress of the Arabs,” saying that relations with Egypt are today better than they were, even under former President Hosni Mubarak.

Under Mubarak, Assad continues, “We considered the Egyptian Foreign Ministry the equivalent of the U.S. Department of State.” But interestingly, Assad said that relations with Egypt were never severed, even under deposed president Mohamed Mursi, revealing that the military and intelligence channels remained open with Egypt the entire time.

Saudi, the Tribal State

In the meantime, hostility and estrangement with Saudi Arabia continues. At the end of the day, Assad remarks, Saudi Arabia is nothing more than “a state of tribes and individuals.”
“Personal relations determine [policy], and when one person falls out with us, all of Saudi Arabia falls out with us,” he adds.

“The Saudis have been hostile to Syria for the past 20 to 30 years to begin with. What changed was the relationship with their master. When their master’s relationship with us is good, they are good with us. When their masters fall out with us, they become hostile to us. There is always the personal factor in Saudi policies,” he says.

With respect to Turkey, according to Assad, the problem is confined to the person of Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The Turkish people, Assad maintains, are opposed to Erdogan’s policies. Even President Abdullah Gul has started to publicly express his opposition to the policies of his prime minister, Assad purports, saying that Gul thinks that if Erdogan wants to gamble with himself, he should at least not gamble his entire political party, the Justice and Development Party (AKP).

The Secular State

Under no circumstances will Syria follow the Lebanese or Iraqi model, Assad proclaims. Syria is and will remain a secular state because this is the only suitable formula for cohesion in the country, which enjoys religious, sectarian, and ethnic pluralism, Assad says.

He asserts there should be no politicization of religion in Syria because this would simply be a recipe for disintegration.

Religion, he went on to say, has its spiritual and humanitarian functions, praising the vital role played by patriotic clerics in maintaining the unity of the Syrian fabric and combatting takfiri ideas, especially the late Mohammed Saeed Ramadan al-Bouti, who was killed while doing this duty.

Economy: Some Self-Criticism

Assad speaks about the pressures currently faced by the Syrian economy. He says that the cycle of production, distribution, and trade had come to a halt, and though it has started spinning in the past two months, it has remained slow. The embargo and terrorism, he adds, have exhausted the Syrian economy and damaged the Syrians’ living standards.

He then stresses that his country did not – and will not – abandon the public sector, in addition to the private and hybrid sectors. Assad says that the reform package, dubbed a “social-market economy,” did not prove to always be balanced, saying that Syria rushed into policies tipped toward privatization, while the public sector was not developed.

Moreover, he says, the Syrian government focused on large investments when the Syrian economy should’ve focused on small- and medium-sized enterprises. Assad adds, “Our primary concern – now – is to preserve and develop the agricultural sector. In the end, more than 60 percent of the people are farmers, and perhaps more than 80 percent are farmers and workers.”

Al-Assad: Geneva 2 might Not Be Held, Hamas Betrayed Us, KSA The State of Tribes

الأسد: حماس غدرتنا مراراً… ولكن

 

الطريق إلى قصر الشعب أكثر قرباً مما يتوقعه البعض. المسافة إليه من المصنع تمر كلمح البصر. لا إجراءات أمنية استثنائية. الرئيس بشار الأسد أمام المدخل يستقبل زواره ببسمته المعهودة. لا محرمات في النقاش. بضع نكات يتمنى عدم تسريبها، مرفقة بضحكات تصدح في تلك الغرفة الواسعة. روسيا، الكيميائي، «حماس»، السعودية، مصر، الأردن، تركيا، العراق، الوضع الميداني… كلها حاضرة، والخلاصة واحدة: نحن مرتاحون

إيلي شلهوب

دمشق | لافت حجم المساحة التي تحتلها روسيا في استراتيجية الرئيس السوري بشار الأسد. يبدو كثير الاطمئنان إليها. هو يؤكد أن الروس، بما يفعلونه، لا يدافعون لا عن سوريا ولا عن شعبها ولا عن نظامها ولا عن رئيسها. هم يدافعون عن أنفسهم. يستذكر لقاءً سبق أن عقده عام ٢٠٠٥ مع الرئيس فلاديمير بوتين. وقتها بادر الرئيس السوري مضيفه بالتعبير عن احساسه بأن الحرب الباردة لا تزال تدور رحاها. وافقه بوتين، عارضا المسألة من زاوية مختلفة، قال سيد الكرملين «إنها حرب صحيح، لكنها حرب حضارية بين الشرق والغرب». قناعة أخرى يظهر أنها تتحكم في عقل الرئيس السوري. يرى أن أمن سوريا واستقرارها تحميهما السياسة، أكثر من الترسانة العسكرية. يعتقد بأن التوازن الدولي هو الضمانة الأمثل. ثلاثة فيتوهات روسية صينية خلال عمر الأزمة السورية خير دليل. حتى الترسانة الكيميائية لا يأسف عليها. يراها سلاحا ردعيا فات زمانه لثلاثة اسباب: أولاً، تطوير قوة الردع الصاروخية السورية، الممكن استخدامها منذ اللحظة الأولى للحرب، أنهى ضرورة الكيميائي، الذي لا يستخدم إلا كرصاصة أخيرة، عندما يستخدم العدو ترسانته النووية. ثانيا، جرى تقدم كبير في العقدين الماضيين في طرق استيعاب ومعالجة آثار السلاح الكيميائي. فعاليته العسكرية لم تعد ذات جدوى فعلية؛ السلاح الكيميائي له أثر معنوي، إذ إننا نرى أنه كلما ازداد التوتر توزع اسرائيل الاقنعة الواقية على مواطنيها الخائفين، لكن عندما تستخدم تلك الأسلحة، يمكن علاج آثارها بسهولة. هي حكاية داء ودواء. والدليل خمسة جنود سوريين أصيبوا بهجمة كيميائية للمعارضة عولجوا بحقن وعادوا الى ساحة المعركة بعد يومين. من هنا، يقول الاسد، إن سوريا أوقفت تصنيع الاسلحة الكيميائية في ١٩٩٧ واستعاضت عنها بالاسلحة التقليدية التي يراها العامل الحاسم في الميدان. يوضح أنه أقام البنية التسليحية لجيشه على الصواريخ. «تكفي السيطرة بالنار على مطارات إسرائيل لتشلها». معروف أن قوة اسرائيل بسلاحها الجوي. أما ثالثاً، فلأن الحرب الآن داخلية.
لا شك في أن هناك خسارة معنوية وسياسية في تسليم الكيميائي السوري، يقول الأسد. في عام ٢٠٠٣ طرحت دمشق اخلاء الشرق الأوسط من أسلحة الدمار الشامل. كان الكيميائي السوري ورقة تفاوضية ثمنه النووي الإسرائيلي. اليوم تغير الثمن. جرى الاتفاق على تسليمه في مقابل تجنيب سوريا العدوان. حتى التصنيع العسكري التقليدي، الذي كان موجها ضد إسرائيل، بات موجها لعدو الداخل، وفي هذا خسارة أيضا. وعن فوز منظمة حظر الأسلحة الكيميائية بجائز نوبل للسلام، علّق الأسد ممازحاً: «هذه الجائزة كان يجب أن تكون لي».

وداعاً جنيف

لا يعتقد الاسد بان مؤتمر جنيف ٢ سيعقد، وإن حددوا له موعدا في تشرين الثاني. ربما يحصل فقط تلبية لرغبة روسيا التي تسعى من خلاله الى ابعاد شبح الحرب. يقول انه لا مشكلة لدى سوريا بالحضور. مطلبها واضح ويقوم على مبدئين: صندوقة الاقتراع ووقف دعم الإرهابيين. الأول للموافقة على اي اتفاق يجري التوصل اليه ولاختيار اي رئيس مقبل للبلاد. والثاني لوقف الحرب. «كلما قتلنا الف ارهابي، دخل البلاد ألفان».
مشكلة الغرب في أن الجماعة التي يدعمونها للمفاوضات مفككة، وليس لها سيطرة على الارض. «الحر» بات في حكم المنتهي. عناصره تركوه إما للانضمام إلى الجماعات الإسلامية، أو إلى الدولة، حيث عاد بعضهم وهو يقاتل الآن في صفوف الجيش السوري. لم يبق من القوى التي دعمها الغرب والخليج سوى الارهابيين، هؤلاء لا مكان لهم في جنيف 2.
المشكلة، من وجهة نظر الأسد، لدى الطرف الآخر، الغربي تحديداً. يقول إن من يستطيع الغرب اشراكه في المؤتمر لا سيطرة له على الارض، ومن لديه سيطرة على الارض لا إمرة للغرب عليه. يستذكر أنه ذات مرة جاءه الاخضر الابراهيمي حاملا اليه تقديرا اميركيا بوجود الفي مجموعة مسلحة. سأله الرئيس السوري عن تقديره هو، فاجاب ١٢٠٠ مجموعة. من يستطيع التحكم فيها وضمان تنفيذها لاي اتفاق سياسي.

الأجانب أفضل من العرب

غصة تبدو واضحة في حلق الأسد. «لم يتصل أي مسؤول عربي بنا حاملا وساطة أو مشروع حل عربي». كانوا دوما صدى لـ«سيدهم» الغربي، بل أكثر من ذلك. يقول إن الغرب، بكل مساوئه، «كان في التعامل معنا أشرف من بعض العرب». كوفي أنان كان شريفا واستقال، غيره من معاونيه العرب لم يفعل ذلك. ملف أصر على أنه مؤجل البحث فيه الى ما بعد الازمة. لا يريد أن يتعامل معه بانفعال على طريقة معمر القذافي عندما توجه الى أفريقيا. يصر على الانتماء العربي لسوريا، لكنه لا يرى هذا الامر مرتبطا بالضرورة بجامعة الدول العربية. إطار هذا الانتماء من الناحية العملية وشكله وطريقة التعبير عنه يحدد في ما بعد.

تقدم ميداني

بدا مطمئنا إلى مسار العمليات العسكرية في الميدان. الحرب كر وفر. مرة نستعيد منطقة ومرة نخسر أخرى، لكن إذا ما أخذ بالاعتبار المسار العام للأمور، نجد أن الجيش السوري يتقدم على نحو واضح. مشكلتان تحدث عنهما بالتحديد. درعا والجبهة الأردنية من جهة، حيث قال إن المقاتلين والأسلحة لا يزالون يتدفقون من هناك. لا همّ إن كان عبر النظام الأردني أو عبر الخليجيين. إنها جبهة تنزف مقاتلين. وجبهة الشمال. حلب بالتحديد، القريبة من الحدود التركية. الدعم التركي يبقيها مفتوحة. «الآن يعاني الأتراك مشكلة بعدما سيطر تنظيم القاعدة على المعبر». أما باقي المناطق، فلا مشكلة فيها.
ونفى الاسد على نحو قاطع ما نشر قبل أيام عن أن عضو اللجنة المركزية في حركة فتح، عباس زكي، حمل معه رسالة من أمير قطر الجديد الى الاسد. غريب أن اسم قطر لم يحضر إلا من باب سؤال عن الخبر الصحافي المذكور. كان خالد مشعل المقيم وفريقه في الدوحة أكثر حضورا في حديث الرئيس السوري.

«غدر» حماس

حضرت حركة حماس من باب التساؤلات التي أثارتها تسريبات عن زيارة مشعل الى طهران، وإمكان أن تكون دمشق، وقصر الشعب تحديداً، محطته التالية. كان الأسد حريصا على وضع النقاط على الحروف. بدأ حديثه بالتأكيد على أن جماعة الإخوان المسلمين، ومنذ ثمانين عاما، لم تُعرف الا بالتقلب والمصلحية والغدر، قبل أن يضيف إن دمشق لم تعامل «حماس» منذ البداية على أنها جزء من هذه الجماعة. «كان الأوروبيون يأتون الينا ويسألون عما تفعله حماس هنا، كنا نقول لهم إنها حركة مقاومة». وحدها تلك الصفة التي أكسبت «حماس احتضان سوريا ودعمها ورعايتها لها».
«عندما بدأت الأزمة، قالوا (مسؤولو حماس) إنهم وجهوا الينا نصائح. هذا كذب. من هم ليوجهوا نصائح إلى سوريا؟ ثم قالوا إننا طلبنا مساعدتهم، وهذا غير صحيح. فما علاقتهم في الشأن الداخلي السوري». جاء ذاك اليوم الذي اعلن فيه رئيس الاتحاد العالمي لعلماء المسلمين يوسف القرضاوي تصريحاته المسيئة. «نعم طالبناهم باتخاذ موقف». بعد فترة جاؤوا يقولون إنهم ذهبوا الى القرضاوي وتحدثوا معه. قلنا إن من يريد أن يتخذ موقفا سياسيا يتخذه علنا. ما قيمة الموقف الذي يؤخذ في غرف مغلفة. فكان ما كان من قطيعة. قررت «حماس» في النهاية أن تتخلى عن المقاومة وتكون جزءاً من حركة الاخوان المسلمين. «لم تكن هذه المرة الأولى التي يغدرون فيها بنا. حصل ذلك قبلا في ٢٠٠٧ و٢٠٠٩». تاريخ من الغدر والخيانة، قبل أن يتمنى «لو يستطيع أحد ما اقناعهم بأن يعودوا حركة مقاومة مجدداً، لكنني أشك» في ذلك. حماس انحازت ضد سوريا منذ اليوم الاول، لقد اخذوا خيارا.
غريب كيف حضر وليد جنبلاط وويليام بيرنز فجأة عند السؤال عن امكانية أن يستقبل مشعل. «لا تستبعد أن ترى جنبلاط هنا»، مزحة أرفقت بقهقهة. مع اثارة الموضوع مجددا، استذكر يوم جاءه وليام بيرنز قبل غزو العراق عام ٢٠٠٣. وقتها، قدم بيرنز مجموعة من الطلبات تحت عنوان تسهيلات لضرب العراق، بينها على سبيل المثال السماح للطائرات المغيرة بعبور الأجواء السورية. لم يكن أحد من الناس العاديين ليلحظ ذلك. كان جواب الاسد بسيطا. «أنتم دولة بلا مبادئ، تقيمون سياستكم الخارجية على قواعد تجارية، قدموا إلينا صفقة وسنبحث ان كانت في مصلحتنا ونعرضها على الشعب السوري». مقاربة اختلف حولها المفسرون، وإن بدا واضحا أن قلب الأسد لا يزال مثخنا بالجراح التي تسببت بها «حماس»، مع إبقاء الباب مفتوحا، إذا فرضت المصلحة اختراقات معينة. في النهاية السياسة قناعات… ومصالح.

العراق: جيد جداً

كان لافتا مستوى الرضى والتقدير الذي يكنه الأسد للعراق. «موقفه جيد جداً منذ البداية». الأكثر اثارة للانتباه أنه كان حريصا على التأكيد أنه لا يتحدث فقط عن بغداد، بل عن الأكراد. عن كردستان العراق. رغم أن وزير الخارجية، هوشيار زيباري، المحسوب على هذا المكون الكردي، جنح بضع مرات في بعض المواقف، لكن موقف العراق «جيد جداً».
وما يجري في مصر متابع بدقة في دمشق، على أعلى المستوى. الأسد يؤكد أن «مصر هي حصن العرب»، وأن العلاقة معها اليوم أفضل مما كانت عليه حتى أيام الرئيس السابق حسني مبارك. في عهد الرئيس المخلوع «كنا ننظر إلى وزارة الخارجية المصرية على أنها وزارة الخارجية الأميركية»، بل كان الأسد حريصا على التأكيد أن العلاقة مع مصر لم تنقطع حتى أيام الرئيس المعزول محمد مرسي. القنوات الاستخبارية والعسكرية بقيت مفتوحة طوال الوقت. الآن العلاقات مع مصر أفضل من العهدين الفائتين.

دولة القبائل

الحال مع السعودية لا تزال على حالها من القطيعة والعداء. في النهاية، السعودية ليست إلا «دولة قبائل وأشخاص. العلاقات الفردية هي المقررة. عندما يختلف أحد هؤلاء معنا تصبح السعودية كلها مختلفة معنا». «أصلا السعوديون ناصبوا سوريا العداء طوال الـ20، 30 سنة الماضية، ما تغير هو العلاقة مع سيدهم. عندما تكون علاقة سيدهم معنا جيدة، يكونون هم جيدين. وعندما يختلف أسيادهم معنا، يظهرون عداءهم لنا»، لكن هناك دائما الطابع الشخصي في السياسة السعودية.
والمشكلة في تركيا، من وجهة نظر الأسد، تنحصر في شخص رجب طيب أردوغان. الشعب التركي ضد سياسته في سوريا. آخر استطلاع رأي أظهر أن أكثريته الساحقة ضد المشاركة في أي عدوان علينا. حتى الرئيس عبد الله غول بدأ يعبر علنا عن معارضته لسياسة رئيس وزرائه. رأى غول أنه اذا كان اردوغان يريد أن يضيّع نفسه، فلا داعي إلى أن يضيع الحزب معه (في اشارة الى العدالة والتنمية).
يظهر من خلال حديث الأسد كم هو كبير الدور السلبي الذي أداه وزير الخارجية محمد داوود أوغلو. كانت القنوات العسكرية بين سوريا وتركيا مفتوحة طوال الوقت، إلى أن قرر أوغلو أن يضعها بإمرة وزارة الخارجية، فتوقفت، ثم أطاحوا قيادة الجيش وكان ما كان.

الدولة المدنية

لن تتبع سوريا نسخة لبنانية او عراقية تحت أي ظرف. سوريا كانت وستبقى دولة قومية علمانية مدنية لان هذه هي الصيغة الوحيدة الملائمة لتماسك سوريا التي تتمتع بالتعددية الدينية والطائفية والعرقية. الدين بالنسبة إليه هو المظلة التي تتفيأ فيها كل القطاعات، من سياسة واقتصاد وثقافة وغيرها، لكن لا تسييس للدين في سوريا لانها ببساطة وصفة لتفكيكها. للدين دوره الروحي والانساني، وللمؤسسات الدينية دورها الدعوي. وأشاد الرئيس هنا بالدور الوطني الكبير الذي يؤديه رجال الدين الوطنيون في الحفاظ على وحدة النسيج السوري ومكافحة الافكار التكفيرية، وذكر بالتخصيص الدكتور محمد سعيد رمضان البوطي الذي استشهد في هذه الطريق.

 


الاقتصاد: نقد ذاتي

يلاحظ الرئيس بشار الأسد حجم الضغوط التي يواجهها الاقتصاد السوري الآن. عجلة الانتاج والتوزيع والتجارة جامدة، وهي وإن بدأت بالدوران في الشهرين الأخيرين إلا أنها لا تزال بطيئة. الحصار والارهاب ارهقا الاقتصاد السوري، وأضرا بمستوى معيشة المواطنين. هذا محور من محاور الحرب على سوريا، لا يقل ضراوة عن الحرب الفعلية.
يؤكد أن بلاده لم تتخلَّ ـــ ولن تتخلى ـــ عن القطاع العام، إلى جانب القطاعين الخاص والمشترك. هذه هي التركيبة التي وضعنا لها عنوان اقتصاد السوق الاجتماعي لم تكن متوازنة دائما، فنحن تسرعنا أكثر مما يجب في سياسات واجراءات تنحو نحو الخصخصة والقطاع الخاص، ولم نحقق تطوير القطاع العام الذي تراجعت كفاءته، كذلك ركّزنا في الفترة السابقة للازمة على الاستثمارات الكبيرة بينما ما يحتاجه الاقتصاد السوري لزيادة النمو وخلق فرص العمل وتوزيع مكاسب النمو هو التركيز على المؤسسات الصغيرة والمتوسطة. اهتمامنا الأول ـ الآن ـ الحفاظ على القطاع الزراعي وتطويره، ففي النهاية أكثر من 60 في المئة من الشعب فلاحون، وربما أكثر من 80 فلاحون وعمال.

16 yr old Malala explains the facts of life to Obama “drones are ‘fueling terrorism'”

Source

President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and their daughter Malia meet with Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot in the head by the Taliban a year ago, in the Oval Office, Oct. 11, 2013.

PETE SOUZA — Official White House photo

            President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama met in the Oval Office Friday with Malala Yousafzai, the Pakastani girl who was shot in the head on her school bus by Taliban gunmen for criticizing their rule, including banning education for girls.

The White House says the first couple invited Malala — the youngest ever nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize — to the White House “to thank her for her inspiring and passionate work on behalf of girls education in Pakistan.”

In a statement, the White House says the United States “joins with the Pakistani people and so many around the world to celebrate Malala’s courage and her determination to promote the right of all girls to attend school and realize their dreams.”

In a statement released after the meeting, Malala said she was honored to meet with Obama, but that she told him she’s worried about the effect of U.S. drone strikes. (The White House statement didn’t mention that part.)

“I thanked President Obama for the United States’ work in supporting education in Pakistan and Afghanistan and for Syrian refugees,” she said in the statement. “I also expressed my concerns that drone attacks are fueling terrorism. Innocent victims are killed in these acts, and they lead to resentment among the Pakistani people. If we refocus efforts on education it will make a big impact.”

Malala was in Washington to address the World Bank.

The White House noted that Obama had said in a proclamation marking today as the International Day of the Girl, that “across the globe there are girls who will one day lead nations, if only we afford them the chance to choose their own destinies.”

The meeting was not on the president’s schedule and there was no advance notice, nor any press coverage.

Press Secretary Jay Carney had earlier said Malala’s “courage and efforts are remarkable, and the president absolutely honors them,” after ABC News’ Jonathan Karl asked him whether the Nobel committee “blew it” by giving the Nobel Peace Prize to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, rather than Malala.

Carney said the award “reinforces the international community’s commitment to the international prohibition against the use of chemical weapons. “One of the President’s highest priorities is to prevent the proliferation or use of weapons of mass destruction,” Carney said. “And this award honors those who make it their life’s work to advance this vital goal.”

Putin Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize



By Stephen Lendman

Global Research, October 03, 2013

The International Academy of Spiritual Unity and Cooperation Among Nations of the World (IASUCANW) nominated him for the 2014 award.

On October 11, this year’s winner will be announced. Annual nominations must be postmarked by February 1.

Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov collaborated. They’ve addressed regional conflicts responsibly. They’ve gone all out for peace in Syria.

They want things resolved diplomatically. They want all sides on board to do so.
They continue doing it against long odds. Both men deserve recognition for their efforts. They persist tirelessly.

They do it knowing Obama wants regime change. War is his bottom line option to achieve it. Preventing it will be a monumental achievement. So will resolving Syria’s conflict peacefully.
On October 1, IASUCANW President Georgiy Trapeznikov said “the letter was sent to the Nobel Committee September 16 and it was received September 20.”

“Vladimir Putin has proved his adherence to the cause of peace.”
“We know very well what peacemaking role our president played in conflict regions, especially Beslan and South Ossetia.”

He’s very much involved in resolving Syria’s conflict peacefully.
Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Pekov said:

“The primary criterion for the president is satisfaction from a job well done.” He seeks no special recognition or awards.

State Duma MP Iosif Kobzon said Putin deserves next year’s prize. He’s polar opposite Obama.
“Barack Obama is the man who has initiated and approved the United States’ aggressive actions in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Kobzon.

“Now he is preparing for an invasion into Syria. He bears this title nevertheless.”
“Our president, who tries to stop the bloodshed and who tries to help the conflict situation with political dialogue, is in my view more worthy of this high title.”

Nobel Committee members deplore peace. They represent wealth, power and privilege.
They believe war is peace. It shows in their annual selections.

Past winners included Henry Kissinger, Shimon Peres, Yitzhak Rabin, Menachem Begin, FW de Klerk, Al Gore, Kofi Annan, and four US warrior presidents.

Announcing Obama award, Committee members said:

It reflects his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

He’s “work(ed) for a world without nuclear weapons.”

He “created a new climate in international politics.”

“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future.”

Since day one in office, Obama waged war on humanity. He continues doing it.

He wants Syria ravaged and destroyed. He plans war on Iran. He has other targets in mind.

He doesn’t have a peace bone in his body. He thrives on violence. He presides over a homeland police state apparatus.

He spurns core rule of law principles. He considers them quaint and out-of-date. They’re obstacles to achieving global dominance.

His agenda is belligerent. It’s interventionist. It deplores peace. It prioritizes conflict and instability. He wants unipolar world control.

Putin is polar opposite. He supports peace and stability. He calls nation-state sovereignty inviolable.
He champions multi-polar world cooperation. He deserves recognition for his efforts to achieve it.
All-Russian Education Fund president Sergey Komkov supports Putin’s nomination. He addressed Nobel Committee members by letter, saying:

Putin “appl(ies) maximum effort for maintaining peace, not only on the territory of his own country, but he also actively supports the peaceful settlement of all conflicts on the planet.”

On October 1, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro expressed support for Putin’s nomination, saying:

“If there is someone who deserves the Nobel Peace Prize at this historic moment, it is the Russian President Vladimir Putin, who was able to stop the war that threatened the Syrians.”

Venezuelan National Assembly President Diosadado Cabello Rondon plans visiting Moscow.
He’ll give Putin a congratulatory letter. He’ll do so for “the role he is playing in establishing a new world of peace.”

Former Reagan administration Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Kathleen Troia McFarland endorsed Putin’s nomination, saying:
“The world knows that Vladimir Putin is the one who really deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.” She praised his “give peace a chance” efforts.

Chicago Tribune editors said his proposal to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons “validates the great power status of Russia and might even win Vladimir Putin a Nobel Peace Prize.”

A “We the People” petition wants Obama to give Putin his 2009 award, stating:

“Whereas Mr. Obama made a sincere commitment to starting a war with Syria, engaging our military in unwanted conflict, and doing so without the support of his people, we resolve that Mr. Obama should deliver the Nobel Peace prize given to him in 2009 to a man of Peace, the President of Russia, Mr. Putin.”
“Whereas Mr. Putin enabled the United States to avoid an unwanted and unwarranted military action, he has brought us to the ‘brink’ of peace.”

Other global initiatives want Obama’s award rescinded. RootsAction headlined “Revoke Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize,” saying:

“After receiving the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, President Obama has made perpetual war look more perpetual than ever.”
“Today, there are more US troops in Afghanistan than when Obama took office.”
“His increasing intervention in Syria promises the loss of even more than the nearly 100,000 lives already needlessly sacrificed.”
“His intervention in Libya cost thousands of lives while destabilizing the entire region.”
“His presidency has widened the use of drones and other instruments of remote killing without limit to almost any place on the globe.”
“Please sign this petition to the Norwegian Nobel Committee.” Access it at RootsAction.org.

On October 1, The New York Times headlined “Citing Efforts to Prevent Attack on Syria, Group Nominates Putin for Peace Prize.”

Putin bashing is longstanding Times policy. It continues irresponsibly. The Times lied saying:

“He is credited with commanding a war to crush separatism in Chechnya, approving a full-scale attack on Georgia over a minor border dispute, and complaining when NATO led an air war in Libya to stop Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi from killing thousands of Libyans.”
“And he is still selling weapons to the murderous government of President Bashar al-Assad of Syria.”

Fact check

Former Russian President Boris Yeltsin waged two wars on Chechnya. He waged another against ordinary Russian citizens.

Shock therapy produced economic genocide. Around 80% of farmers went bankrupt. About 70,000 state factories closed.

An unemployment epidemic followed. A permanent underclass was created. Half or more of Russians became impoverished.

Crime, suicides, mortality, alcoholism, drug abuse, and HIV/AIDS soared to intolerable levels.
Essential needs were ignored. Human and civil rights were spurned. The New York Times called Yeltsin “a towering figure of his time.”

He became widely despised. His approval rating sunk to low single digits. On December 31, 1999, his tenure ended disgracefully. He announced it, saying:

“I want to beg forgiveness for your dreams that never came true. And also I would like to beg forgiveness not to have justified your hopes.”

Putin was Yeltsin’s prime minister. He became acting president. He remained so until Russians formally elected him to lead on March 26.

According to former Nezavisimaia Gazeta editor-in-chief Vitalii Tret’iakov:

“(F)or the greater part of his presidency, Yeltsin slept, drank, was ill, relaxed, didn’t show his face before the people and simply did nothing.”
“Despised by the majority of (Russians, he’ll) go down in history as the first president of Russia, having corrupted (the country) to the breaking point, not by his virtues and or by his defects, but rather by his dullness, primitiveness, and unbridled power lust of a hooligan.”

Western governments, The NYT, and other mainstream media hailed his democratic change.
They ignored his “free market” gangsterism. Another generation may be needed to recover from the human wreckage he caused.

Obama bears full responsibility for lawless aggression on Libya. Doing so destroyed Africa’s most developed country.

Daily charnel house violence, instability, poverty, unemployment, homelessness, hunger, and human misery replaced it. Don’t expect The Times to explain.

Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili is a despotic US-installed stooge.

On August 7, 2008, he lawlessly attacked South Ossetia. He did so with Bush administration backing.
President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin acted responsibly. They did so to protect thousands of Russian citizens at risk.

Times editors, commentators and writers misreported on what happened. They didn’t surprise. They backed lawless aggression. They opposed responsible self-defense. They did so disgracefully.
They’re doing it again now. They criticize Putin’s efforts to prevent full-scale war on Syria.
He vetoed three US-led Security Council resolutions to do it. The Times lied saying he “block(ed) international action that could have stemmed the violence in Syria and prevented the deaths of more than 100,000 civilians.”

Syria is Obama’s war. He bears full responsibility for mass killing and destruction. The Times didn’t explain.

More Putin bashing followed, saying:

“Mr. Putin would not be the first formerly war-waging leader to win the Peace Prize.”

True enough about many others. Obama stands out notably. Putin responsibly deplores war. He seeks peace.

The Times again failed to explain. Irresponsible reporting substituted. It’s longstanding Times policy. Its “news fit to print” isn’t fit to read.
