Longstanding US/UK Spying On Israeli Military Operations

It’s no surprise. Nations routinely spy on allies and adversaries. Today’s sophisticated technology makes it easier than ever.

On Friday, Israeli and Western media reported Washington and Britain accessed Israeli military aircraft video feeds – letting them monitor IDF operations in Gaza, along with watching for potential strikes on Iran.

US and UK intelligence cracked special IDF encryption years ago. They’ve been monitoring communications between Israeli warplanes, drones and military bases.

Edward Snowden-released NSA documents and photos revealed it. Israel expressed disappointment but not surprise, over-hyping what it called “an earthquake…the worst leak in the history of (its) intelligence.”

Tracking is done from a Royal Air Force installation near Mount Olympus, the highest point on Cyprus.

An anonymous Israeli official said the breach means Washington and Britain “forcibly stripped us, and, no less important, that probably none of our encrypted systems are safe from them.”

A 2008 UK intelligence (GCHQ) report called access “indispensable for maintaining an understanding of Israeli military training and operations, and thus an insight into possible future developments in the region.”

“In times of crisis, this access is critical and one of the only avenues to provide up to the minute information and support to US and allied operations in the area.”

The White House declined to comment, only saying spying is conducted for national security reasons. It’s espionage, stealing other countries’ secrets for political, economic and military advantage.

It’s not about keeping us safe. America hasn’t had an enemy since Japan surrendered at WW II’s end.

Domestic spying has nothing to do with national security. It’s for control, transforming America into a police state, its most disadvantaged citizens victimized, thousands wrongfully imprisoned for political reasons.

Earlier released Snowden documents revealed global NSA spying, at home and abroad, including on allied world leaders. Big Brother is real, no longer fiction. Privacy no longer exists.

Unconstitutional mass surveillance is standard practice. Obama escalated what his predecessors began, secretly authorizing illegal intrusions into the lives of ordinary US citizens, monitoring their electronic and telephonic communications without judicial authorization, waging war on freedom, spying more aggressively worldwide than any previous regime in history.

Netanyahu spokesman Mark Regev once ludicrously said “Israel does not spy on the United States of America.”

Not according to the CIA, calling Israel America’s main regional spy threat. Numerous Israeli officials are involved – with close ties to foreign military, intelligence and criminal sources.

In 2011, former CIA counterintelligence/military intelligence officer Philip Giraldi accused Israel of stealing everything it gets its hands on, including military, political, industrial, commercial, technological, economic and financial secrets.

Annual FBI reports prominently feature Israeli spying on America. Washington’s Government Accountability Office (GAO) earlier said Israel “conducts the most aggressive espionage operation against the United States of any US ally.”

The Pentagon accused Israel of “actively engag(ing) in military and industrial espionage in the United States. An Israeli citizen working in the US who has access to proprietary information is likely to be a target of such espionage.”

Despite longstanding close ties, past and current US national security officials consider Israel a frustrating ally, a genuine counterintelligence threat.

Its technical capability and human resources match some of America’s best – with direct access to top-level US political, military and intelligence sources, enlisting them to steal American secrets.

Israel gets virtually anything it wants from Washington, its intrusive spying overlooked.

Their imperial ties matters more, longstanding partners in naked aggression and other high crimes.

UK Doctors Accuse Israel Of Medical Torture

Seventy-one UK doctors along with 343 academics want the Israeli Medical Association and its members expelled from the World Medical Association.

They want joint projects with Israeli universities banned. They accused Israeli doctors of “medical torture” on Palestinian patients.

Thousands of Palestinians are imprisoned solely for political reasons. Vital medical care when needed is routinely denied or inadequately provided, pain meds substituting for treatment, causing needless suffering, at times resulting in death.

In 2000, former Israeli Abu Kabir forensic institute head Dr. Yehuda Hiss accused Israel of killing Palestinians to harvest their organs.

Interviewed on Israel’s Channel 2 at the time, he said “(w)e started to harvest corneas. (What) was done was (unethical). No permission was asked from…famil(ies)” of victims.

The 1990s-aired Channel 2 report said Abu Kabir forensic specialists harvested skin, corneas, heart valves and bones from bodies of Israeli soldiers, its citizens, Palestinians and foreign workers – without obtaining legal authorization.

UC Berkeley Professor of Medical Anthropology/Organ Watch founder Nancy Scheper-Hughes earlier said “Israeli organ harvesting – sometimes with Israeli governmental funding and the participation of high Israeli officials, prominent Israeli physicians, and Israeli ministries – has been documented for many years. Among the victims have been Palestinians.”

“Israel is at the top” of the organ harvesting racket. “It has tentacles reaching out worldwide…a pyramid system at work that’s awesome.”

“They have brokers everywhere, bank accounts everywhere; they’ve got recruiters, they’ve got translators, they’ve got travel agents who set up the visas.”

“They pay “the poor and the hungry to slowly dismantle their bodies” or simply take what they want from fresh corpses.”

“Body parts are commodities, to be harvested and sold to the rich, even though organ sales are prohibited in most countries, but not (under) international law.”

The UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime calls organ extraction for profit human exploitation. In 2008, Israel banned the practice. It still persists.

Earlier, former Council of Europe Human Dignity and Equality director Marja Ruotanen said:

“We have legislation and definitions covering the trafficking in human beings for the purpose of organ removal, (yet) there is a legal vacuum for the traffic in organs, tissues and cells.”

Organs from perhaps thousands of Palestinian corpses were harvested, Abu Kabir forensic specialists are complicit with Israeli authorities in trafficking in human body parts.

Israeli physicians involved in medically illegal and unethical practices, along with state authorities permitting it, should be held fully accountable for their crimes.

Separately on Wednesday, the Palestinian Detainees Committee (PDC) said Israel abducted and detained 130 Palestinians in 2015 for legitimate social media comments.

Over two dozen face wrongful charges of “incitement and supporting terrorist groups.” Others are administratively detained uncharged and untried – indefinitely if Israel chooses.

PDC said “(s)uch arrests and violations are carried out while Israel continues to ignore racist Israeli social media posts, photos and statements by extremists who openly call for killing the Arabs, for executing them and for removing them out of their homeland.”

Anyone legitimately criticizing Israeli viciousness or expressing solidarity with Palestinian resistance for justice risks arrest, prosecution, imprisonment or assassination.

Israel’s Nuclear Submarines

According to Der Spiegel, Germany has supplied Israel with the three submarines that are fully capable of carrying cruise missiles with nuclear war-heads. (Reuters)

According to Der Spiegel, Germany has supplied Israel with the three submarines that are fully capable of carrying cruise missiles with nuclear war-heads. (Reuters)

Israel is thermonuclear armed and dangerous. Its arsenal likely includes 200 or more warheads, its delivery systems able to strike far distant targets.

It operates five Dolphin-class, nuclear-capable submarines, its newest just added to its fleet – “a formidable war machine, the most advanced, complex and most expensive” military hardware Israel possesses, according to President Reuven Rivlin.

Germany is Israel’s supplier, the first three vessels commissioned in 1999 and 2000, the fourth and fifth ones agreed to in 2006.

They have a maximum speed of 20 knots, a range of 4,500 km. New boats are equipped with 650mm torpedo tubes, capable of launching thermonuclear-armed cruise missiles.

German officials acknowledge Israel’s intention to have a nuclear-capable submarine fleet, able to strike targets anywhere in the region and beyond – boats designed and built to its specifications.

In June 2012, Der Spiegel headlined “Operation Sampson: Israel’s Deployment of Nuclear Missiles on Subs from Germany,” saying:

Vessels represent “precision engineering made in Germany…suitable for equipping with nuclear weapons.”

“Deep in their interiors, on decks 2 and 3, the submarines contain a secret” known to few Israeli insiders: “nuclear warheads, small enough to be mounted on a cruise missile…explosive enough to execute a nuclear strike” – capable of causing vast destruction.

Anyone publicly admitting Israel’s secret program risks “lengthy prison term(s).” Spiegel minced no words, saying with Germany’s help, Israel “creat(ed) a floating nuclear weapon(s) arsenal” – a global menace by any standard.

It asked if Berlin was “recklessly promoting an arms race in the Middle East” – Israel’s war machine enhanced with its fifth Dolphin-class nuclear capable submarine, a sixth one contracted to be built ahead, perhaps more to follow.

Germany’s Howaldswerke-Deutsche Werft shipbuilding company is Israel’s supplier, its newest submarine requiring 18 months longer to complete before becoming fully operational.

Its fuel-cell operating air-independent propulsion system permits underwater operations for weeks at a time without surfacing.

The INS Rahav (Hebrew for Neptune, the Greek god of the sea) reportedly cost $2 billion – offset by Berlin assuming some of the cost.

Israel considers nuclear capable submarines a key part of its defense. Its only enemies are ones it invents – a rogue state threatening world peace, partnered with its US paymaster.

Where Does Israel Stand On Fighting ISIS?

“If I had to choose between Iran and the Islamic State, I’d choose the jihadists,” said the Israeli Defense Minister.

(The Real Agenda) The Israeli position on the fight against jihadist extremism is clear. Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s Defense Minister, insisted that the Islamic Republic of Iran poses a greater threat to its security than the Sunni radicals, and therefore, Israel would prefer to ally with the Islamic State before seeking a solution to what the government of Israel calls an existential threat to their security.

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon made a controversial statement on Tuesday during his speech at a conference of the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv.

Yaalon said: “If I had to choose between Iran and the Islamic State, I’d choose the jihadists”, reported the Washington Post.

The minister argued that Iran had a greater capacity than the Islamic State and that the Islamic Republic was still the greatest threat to Israel.

He argued that if Syria were to fall into the hands of one or the other, he would prefer it to be the Islamic State.

“We believe ISIS will be territorially defeated after the blows it has been suffering and the attacks on its oil reserves,” he told the conference.

Yaalon said that the current problems in the Middle East show that the region is facing a “clash of civilizations”.

He added that Israel shares common interests with regional Sunni powers, they also feel threatened by the Shiite power.

These comments came just days after the lifting of sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program imposed by US and the EU.

Many political and intelligence analysts have gone so far as to ask why Israel has been the only country in the Middle East that hasn’t been attacked by ISIS since its creation.

Many of these analysts believe that the fact that ISIS was founded and is openly supported by the US, and since Israel is an American ally, the Jewish nation will not suffer any direct attacks.

It makes sense, therefore, that Israel sees ISIS with better eyes than Iran.

Middle East A Cauldron Of Horror

middle east skull 560

As-salamu alaykum (the peace be upon you (plural) and Shalom (peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquility) may have different nuances but both express a similar intent of goodwill. In reality, not much benevolent friendship exists in the eternal cauldron of Semitic hatred. Genetic and blood feuds have proliferated throughout history, but the foremost difference in this ongoing struggle is that the prospects of initiating a nuclear holocaust are reaching a meltdown radiation level. Human comprehension of the actual devastation from a nuclear strike, much less an all out exchange of warheads cannot be understood by playing a video game or watching a media presentation.

Up to this point in the age of atom splitting annihilation, the apprehension of obliteration kept sounder minds and self-control from pushing the button. But what restraint exists when Islamic suicide bombers or Zionist zealots who are prepared to use the “Samson Option” are in control of the weapons of mass destruction?

An assessment of NUCLEAR WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST, authored by Nick Turse cites a scholarly study. Cham Dallas who is lead author says that “the projections are the most catastrophic he’s seen in more than 30 years analyzing weapons of mass destruction and their potential effects.”

“This could be Tehran, or what’s left of it, just after an Israeli nuclear strike. Iranian cities – owing to geography, climate, building construction, and population densities  –  are particularly vulnerable to nuclear attack, according to a new study, “Nuclear War Between Israel and Iran: Lethality Beyond the Pale,” published in the journal Conflict and Health by researchers from the University of Georgia and Harvard University. It is the first publicly released scientific assessment of what a nuclear attack in the Middle East might actually mean for people in the region.

Its scenarios are staggering.  An Israeli attack on the Iranian capital of Tehran using five 500-kiloton weapons would, the study estimates, kill seven million people  –  86% of the population  –  and leave close to 800,000 wounded.  A strike with five 250-kiloton weapons would kill an estimated 5.6 million and injure 1.6 million, according to predictions made using an advanced software package designed to calculate mass casualties from a nuclear detonation.

Estimates of the civilian toll in other Iranian cities are even more horrendous.  A nuclear assault on the city of Arak, the site of a heavy water plant central to Iran’s nuclear program, would potentially kill 93% of its 424,000 residents.  Three 100-kiloton nuclear weapons hitting the Persian Gulf port of Bandar Abbas would slaughter an estimated 94% of its 468,000 citizens, leaving just 1% of the population uninjured.  A multi-weapon strike on Kermanshah, a Kurdish city with a population of 752,000, would result in an almost unfathomable 99.9% casualty rate.”

John Bosma pens this gem in The American Thinker, Thinking About the Unthinkable: An Israel-Iran Nuclear War.

“The possibility of a nuclear war coming far sooner than one could have imagined under conventional wisdom worst-case scenarios. Following the US’s betrayal of Israel and its de facto detente with Iran, we cannot expect Israel to copy longstanding US doctrines of no-first-nuclear-use and preferences for conventional-weapons-only war plans. After all, both were premised (especially after the USSR’s 1991 collapse) on decades of US nuclear and conventional supremacy. If there ever were an unassailable case for a small, frighteningly vulnerable nation to pre-emptively use nuclear weapons to shock, economically paralyze, and decapitate an enemy sworn to its destruction, Israel has arrived at that circumstance.”

No wonder my fellow friends and readers that you will not see our essays appear in this pinnacle publication of Israel-First dribble. This DARPA consultant, John Bosma boasts that he draws on a 40-year background in nuclear war-gaming and strategic arms control. He sounds like the real model for the WOPR (War Operation Plan Response). Even the computer nerd Dr Stephen Falken from War Games, playing a modified Stephen Hawking role knows better. Calling his creation Joshua, is most symbolic.

At this point let’s face the substance and prospects of just who will launch a detonation. Israel still refuses to publically acknowledge their substantial cache of nukes. However, Israel Submarine Capabilities have much to thank the German made U-boats designers.

“It seems possible, therefore, that the 650mm tubes might have been designed to accommodate indigenously built, long-range Submarine Launched Cruise Missiles (SLCM). The German government has stated that it does not have information on whether Israel installed different equipment on the submarines after delivery, but former German officials have acknowledged that they assumed that Israel intended to equip the submarines with nuclear weapons.”

The insanity that is Middle East knows no bounds. A recent BATR RealPolitik Newsletter topic: The Sunni – Shia War, has a wealth of information on the insidious arrangement Saudi Arabia has made with Israel. If a nuclear attack mission destroys the region, you should know which direction the bombs will come from.

From a popular military and foreign policy publication, The National Interest, account Iran’s Master Plan to Retaliate If Israel Strikes may surprise you.

“However Iran chooses to respond to an Israeli attack on its nuclear program, Khamenei will instruct the IRGC-QF to do its work as discreetly as possible. Any overt missile attack on an American ally in the Arab world — let alone a conventional missile attack on Israel — would prompt the U.S. armed forces to scramble the fighter jets and deploy the aircraft carriers. This is not something Iran wants and a full U.S. military operation is certainly not something that they can afford to confront.

The name of the game for Iran is to maximize the damage on Israeli and U.S. interests without provoking a conventional military assault from both nations that will degrade its military capability and potentially destroy the regime.”

Ponder the last statement. Do you really believe that Iran wants to risk a nuclear retaliation response from Israel with their vastly superior military machine capacity? As reported, the US to deliver F-35 jets to Israel to maintain military edge, is just another indication that Iran may be able to bluff an Obama administration from patrolling the waters of the Persian Gulf, but can they do the same to the Likudniks? However, even the NYT Iran’s Swift Release of U.S. Sailors Hailed as a Sign of Warmer Relations cannot cover-up the absurdity of U.S. foreign policy.

Central to any analysis of deploying arms and boots into this region must confront exactly what benefit or security interest does America gain from such involvements?

Now that Rand Paul has been ushered to tweeting his presidential debate responses, you won’t be hearing any serious challenge on the uniform genuflection to the Wailing Wall.

The intrepid non-intervention, Michael Scheuer quotes George F. Kennan, the quintessential Mr. X of American foreign policy. “The United States has a fateful tie to the Israelis from which we have, in contradistinction to the Israelis, everything to lose, and nothing to gain.” George F. Kennan, Diaries, 25 April 1978.

Mr. Scheuer goes on to say in Time for America to bid a final farewell to Israel and Palestine.

“The war is occurring in a far away place that is no longer of any strategic interest to the United States because the combination of Washington’s relentless, war-causing and Islamist-motivating interventionism and Obama’s cowardly surrenderism have already given the entire region to the Islamists and ensured — thanks to Jewish-American Neocons — Israel’s ultimate doom. Therefore it matters not a lick to any but disloyal Americans whether the Israelis kill all the Palestinians, the Palestinians kill all the Israelis, or, in the best case scenari0, they mutually destroy each other. At the end of the war they all simply will be dead foreigners of whom we had no need and for whom we need not bid any teary farewells. Peoples who want to fight religious wars deserve whatever they get, and these two peoples are determined to fight their religious war until one side or the other is destroyed. Well, so be it, let us get out of it now.”

This wisdom applies to the Zionist/Sunni relationship and their ill-gotten alliance against the Shia Iranians. Since Arabs and Persians do not mix any better than Jews and Palestinian’s, why should the entire globe be drawn into a kosher conflagration?

The United States has become part of a “Reign of Terror” orchestrated by a deceptive and treacherous “so called” ally. There is no need to champion or defend Iran as a Good Samaritan. Radical Islamic Terrorists are just as bad as IDF and Mossad hit squads. The underlying governmental regimes behind these warmonger belligerents have exported their regional hatred to our own shores.

With the prospects of the carnage described by Cham Dallas that could befall Tehran coming to an American city, it is crucial that America pivot away from befriending Israel and adopt a neutral and a non-involvement policy. The inevitability of a real holocaust befalls all parties because of their refusal to give up their quests for dominance. The American empire is over. Wake up to the fifth column hidden in plain sight.

Israel Isolated On Its Opposition To Iran Nuclear Deal

Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of the American Congress right before the election took palce in Israel to seek support for his anti Iran agenda. (Photo:

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was critical of the American foreign policy towards Iran but is happy to take billions of dollars from Washington’s pocket to allegedly improve its security.

(The Real Agenda) “If it were not for our hard work on sanctions to hinder its nuclear program, Iran would have had nuclear weapons a long time ago,” Netanyahu said Sunday to his cabinet members.

The Prime Minister of Israel, the only Middle Eastern country that possesses nuclear weapons, has turned its rejection of the Iranian nuclear deal into its focus issue since 2009.

The pact with Iran, championed by Russia and the United States and endorsed by the major world powers last July, has just been blessed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), in a new diplomatic setback for Netanyahu.

The head of the Israeli Government aligns well with oil Sunni Gulf monarchies.

“Tehran will now have more funds to finance terrorism,” Netanyahu said, and this requires “hard and aggressive sanctions” on Iran should it commit any violation of the pact, he said.

In its strategy to try to boycott Iran’s agreement with major powers, the Likud prime minister has not hesitated to take on Barack Obama, the president of its main military ally.

First he gave a speech to the US Congress -while being in full legislative campaign in Israel to urge lawmakers to veto the nuclear understanding with Iran.

Later, Netanyahu tried unsuccessfully to encourage lawmakers to topple the Vienna Agreement for review at the camera.

Hypocritically, Netanyahu hopes that Washington renews and expands the funding program of the Israeli military expenditure which expires in 2017.

The US pledged in 2007 to provide 3 billion dollars, the equivalent of 20% of the Israeli defense budget.

Netanyahu now hopes to raise the US contribution to 5 billion annually, according to the Israeli press. The Israeli military hopes that his cash will ensure its technological superiority in the region.

It seems unlikely that the current Democratic president will accept such an increase in its contribution to the Israeli military spending -in which it is not considered the allocations of funds for the Israeli missile systems known as the Iron Dome shield.

The Iron Dome Shield system is used by Israel to intercept rockets fired from the Gaza Strip and southern Lebanon.

The only strategy left for the Israeli Prime Minister, which is increasingly isolated from  the rest of the world after opposing the Iranian nuclear deal, signed with Tehran by the world powers, seems to be to try to gain time.

Netanyahu is expecting the next move by the Obama White House, or that of the next elected president, who is set to take over the American Executive next year.

Chicago’s Mayor On The Hot Seat

rahm emanuel

Career Democrat party member, former congressman, Obama White House chief of staff, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel took office in May 2011 – reelected last April for another four-year term.

The late Chicago-based Citizens Committee to Clean up the Courts chairman Sherman Skolnick called him the “acting deputy chief for North America of Mossad.”

His father, Benjamin, was involved in smuggling weapons to the Jewish Irgun underground terrorist group (co-led by future Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin) in Palestine pre-1948.

Their elements were notoriously involved in bombing Jerusalem’s King David Hotel (July 1946 – slaughtering 92 Brits, Arabs and Jews, along with wounding 58 others), as well as the horrific Deir Yassin massacre (April 1948), randomly killing up to 120 defenseless Palestinians mercilessly, including women and children, dozens more in continued fighting – part of the future state of Israel’s genocidal ethnic cleansing master plan.

Emmanuel is a former civilian IDF volunteer during the 1991 Gulf War. It’s believed he holds dual citizenships – a dubious status for any US politician.

Throughout his political career, he’s been unabashedly pro-war, neoliberal and anti-populist. His abrasive style alienates him from anyone opposing his hard-line views.

Chicago notoriously earned a reputation as the police repression capital of America. A Gitmo type operation on the city’s west side is Exhibit A – operating off-the-books in a nondescript Homan Square warehouse, the domestic equivalent of a CIA or Pentagon black site.

People are lawlessly arrested, detained, painfully shackled, interrogated, terrorized and beaten without access to counsel for a day or longer – to coerce confessions to offenses never committed or ones too minor to matter.

City police have virtual carte blanche authority to operate with impunity. Responsibility goes right to the top – Emanuel complicit with what goes on, likely much more illegally than now known, including cops killing Chicagoans unaccountably.

In late November, a seven-minute video surfaced, showing officer Jason Van Dyke extrajudicially executing 17-year-old Lanquan McDonald – guilty of being Black, threatening no one, innocent of any crime.

Van Dyke lawlessly shot him 16 times, twice in the back first, mostly as he lay dying. The incident occurred on October 20, 2014. Coverup and denial followed, police authorities calling cold-blooded murder justifiable self-defense.

Emanuel and other city officials lost a 13-month Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit battle to prevent release of the video. It’s damning.

A knife planted on McDonald’s body was exposed as a Big Lie. Video evidence showed him moving away from Van Dyke unarmed when gunned down from behind in cold blood.

Chicagoans are justifiably outraged. Thousands have been protesting outside City Hall for days, calling for Emanuel’s resignation, along with complicit city and police officials.

Police chief Garry McCarthy was sacked. So was chief of detectives Dean Andrews. Protesters want Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez removed for complicity in months of coverup.

Emanuel’s administration is a cesspool of corruption and other forms of lawlessness, perhaps the worst in city history – ill-serving the vast majority of Chicagoans.

On Thursday, state Rep. La Shawn Ford said “(p)eople are (being) hurt. People have died. People feel they are forgotten about in” a city serving powerful monied interests exclusively.

He introduced legislation to amend state law, authorizing a recall election, letting Chicagoans decide up or down if Emanuel should stay or go.

On Thursday, city medical students staged a silent “die-in” outside City Hall for 16 minutes – symbolizing 16 bullets Van Dyke fired into McDonald’s body.

They lay supine, at least one holding a sign saying: “DO NO HARM.” A much larger “die-in” protest occurred Thursday evening.

Some critics called for abolishing the so-called Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA) – notorious for covering up cop killings. A criminal code of silence prevails.

Almost never are officers responsible for killing civilians held accountable. Even the right-wing Chicago Tribune said “it’s common knowledge that Chicago’s system of investigating shootings by officers is flawed…at so many levels…by design…”

Critics want a new independent, citizen-controlled police audit authority established, empowered to sue the city administration and police so killer cops and their superiors up the chain of command to the top can be held accountable for crimes too serious to ignore.

An Illinois Better Government Association study, covering the period 2010 – 2014, called Chicago tops among America’s largest cities in fatal shootings by police, most often targeting defenseless Black males.

Rarely do incidents make headlines. Video evidence showing officer Van Dyke murdering McDonald in cold blood is a rare exception – whether enough to convict him another issue altogether.

Almost never are cops prosecuted imprisoned, especially in cases involving extrajudicial assassinations. Emanuel’s hollow apology for McDonald’s murder and duplicitous promised “complete and total reform of the system” fooled no one.

Protesters outside City Hall chanted “no more killer cops” and “Rahm must go.” Chance for real reform by his or any other city administration is virtually zero.

Last of Chicago’s saloon keeper aldermen, Paddy Bowler, was right, saying: “Chicago ain’t ready for reform” – for sure not with Emanuel as mayor.

Israeli Commandos Rescue Wounded Terrorists In Syria

israeli commandos treat isis

Israel, like America, is a sworn enemy of peace and stability. Both nations partner in waging war on Syria.

Britain’s Daily MailOnline (MO) has video evidence of Israeli commandos rescuing ISIS and other terrorists in Syria – crossing the border virtually nightly under cover of darkness to accomplish their mission.

A previous article cited Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon admitting Israeli support for ISIS and other takfiri terrorists – deceptively calling them Syrian rebels, disingenuously claiming a humanitarian mission.

Over 2,000 wounded terrorists have been treated in Israeli hospitals, according to MO, aiding their recovery to return them to terrorizing Syrian communities.

In September 2014, a photo of Netanyahu and Ya’alon visiting terrorists in an Israeli hospital went viral online. Netanyahu was seen shaking a terrorist’s hand.

Israel and America are part of the problem, not the solution to restoring regional peace and stability. They prioritize endless conflicts, mass slaughter and destruction – responsible for ravaging one country after another, creating the greatest refugee crisis since WW II, as well as possibly provoking a possible US/Russian confrontation.

MO said it “gained unprecedented access to (Israel’s) secretive and hazardous operation, embedding with the commandos to obtain exclusive footage, and interviewing the medics who are obliged to treat Syrian militants, some of whom openly admit that they intend to kill Israelis.”

“Almost every night, Israeli troops run secret missions to save the lives of Syrian fighters, all of whom are sworn enemies of the Jewish state.”

MO quoted Israeli Lt. Col. Itzik Malka, Golan Brigade medical branch commander, saying “(m)y dream is that one day, the Red Cross will say, thanks guys. We’ll take it from here. You go back to your unit and take care of injured Israelis.”

“I am proud of what we are doing here, but it is a great burden. For every (jihadist hospitalized), there is one less bed for an Israeli. One day we will have to make a choice between an Israeli life and a Syrian one. When that happens it will be hard, but I have to say my first duty will be to Israelis.”

It’s unclear what arrangements Israel made with terrorist groups to rescue and treat their wounded fighters, said MO. All that’s known is they’re taken to Syrian/Israeli border areas, then picked up nightly by Israeli commandos for treatment.

“(L)ives of more than 2,000” fighters were saved. Israel is mostly tightlipped about its operation. It involves treating some civilians – to create the illusion of a humanitarian mission.

An unnamed Israeli spokesman lied, claiming it’s “a world leader in providing humanitarian assistance, both in the Middle East and around the world.”

While treating terrorists used by Washington as imperial foot soldiers, Israel intermittently bombs Syria and Gaza, along with brutalizing the entire Palestinian population.

It extrajudicially executes on average two Palestinians daily, injures thousands more, mass imprisons countless numbers for political reasons, treating them brutally under horrific gulag conditions.

Caring for wounded terrorists is for strategic, not humanitarian reasons – part of Israel’s war on Bashar al-Assad. According to Lt. Col. Malka, “(t)hey are desperate for our medical help.”

“They have no doctors, not even a vet. Once we treated a man who had been stitched up by a friend with a needle and thread. If they want our help to continue, they know they must stop anybody from attacking our soldiers and civilians.”

It’s a strategic relationship between otherwise sworn enemies – “a case of my enemy’s enemy is my friend,” according to one analyst. Israel struck a deal with the devil.

It’s main objective is defeating Assad, Hezbollah and Iran to achieve unchallenged regional control, partnered with Washington.

Israel Directly Supports ISIS

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid a visit to a military field hospital in the Golan Heights.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid a visit to a military field hospital in the Golan Heights.

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon earlier admitted Israeli support for ISIS and other takfiri terrorists, deceptively calling them Syrian rebels – failing to explain they’re imported from scores of countries, used as imperial foot soldiers to oust Assad, no so-called “moderates” among them.

Since Obama waged war on Syria in March 2011, Israel bombed government targets multiple times, naked aggression against its northern neighbor. It continues supplying terrorist elements with weapons, munitions and other support.

Over 1,000 of their wounded fighters were treated in Israeli hospitals, helping them recover to resume waging terror on Syria.

Ya’alon claiming Israeli policy excludes “getting involved in the Syrian war” is a bald-faced lie. It wants Assad replaced by a pro-Western puppet, isolating Iran, then targeting the Islamic Republic for regime change.

Its long-range goal is unchallenged regional hegemony, independent governments eliminated in Syria, Iran and Lebanon, area nations balkanized into mini-states for easier control, undeclared Israeli borders expanded to incorporate territory of neighboring states – a pure evil agenda replicating what America aims to achieve globally.

On November 24, Thierry Meyssan’s Voltaire Network said journalist Sharri Markson got firsthand accounts from wounded jihadist terrorists receiving treatment at Israel’s Ziv Medical Centre, “specialising in war traumology…government-run and linked to the Israeli Defence Forces.”

Their recovery is aided to help them “continue the jihad in Syria.” Israeli security forces detained and interrogated her in a “heavy-handed” way for exposing what they want kept secret.

In September 2014, a photo of Netanyahu and Ya’alon visiting terrorists receiving care in an Israeli hospital went viral online – Netanyahu seen shaking a terrorist’s hand, one of many examples of Israel’s pure evil agenda.

It’s profiting from stolen Syrian and Iraqi oil, buying it cheap on the black market from ISIS, another way it aids regional terrorism.

According to the al-Araby al-Jadeed newspaper, “Israel has in one way or another become the main marketer of ISIS oil. Without them, most ISIS-produced oil would have remained going between Iraq, Syria and Turkey. Even the three companies would not receive the oil if they did not have a buyer in Israel.”

In October, Iraqi security forces captured an Israeli colonel, Yuri Oulen Shahak, working directly with ISIS terrorists. He explained Netanyahu’s criminality during interrogation, one more example of Zionist evil.

He directly “participated in the takfiri ISIL group’s terrorist operations,” according to Iraqi authorities.

Washington and Israel partner in each other’s wars – naked aggression against independent governments, creating devastation and chaos in each country attacked, an endless cycle of mass murder, vast destruction, unspeakable human misery, and unstoppable refuge flows, desperate people seeking safe havens from war and violence.

Russia is too discreet to publicly admit what it knows about US, Israeli and other democracies in name only using ISIS and other takfiri terrorists to advance their imperial ambitions – a reckless agenda heading incrementally toward global war if not stopped.

Israel Caught Receiving Stolen Oil From ISIS Militants


By: Sean Adl-Tabatabai, Your News Wire |

Several sources have confirmed rumours that Israel has purchased most of its oil supplies from ISIS militants who stole it from Syria via tanker truck convoys. 

As reported by an earlier Financial Times report, Israel has bought as much as three-quarters of its oil from Iraqi Kurdistan, which accounts for 19 million barrels of oil over the course of three months.

American Everyman reports:

In a carefully detailed article, Al-Araby lays out the entire process from start to finish, showing how ISIS™ supposedly steals the oil from Conoco oil fields in Syria and then transports them down to Iraqi Kurdistan where the oil is purchased illegally and refined to some small degree so they can get around import regulations in Turkey. The oil is put in tanker trucks labeled as legitimate oil from the Iraqi Kurdistan region and sold to black market buyers in Turkey. The article explains how one of the biggest buyers of that stolen oil just happens to be an Israeli-Greek duel citizen named Uncle Farid.

IS sells Iraqi and Syrian oil for a very low price to Kurdish and Turkish smuggling networks and mafias, who label it and sell it on as barrels from the Kurdistan Regional Government.

It is then most frequently transported from Turkey to Israel, via knowing or unknowing middlemen, according to al-Araby‘s investigation…

Al-Araby has obtained information about how IS smuggles oil from a colonel in the Iraqi Intelligence Services who we are keeping anonymous for his security.

The information was verified by Kurdish security officials, employees at the Ibrahim Khalil border crossing between Turkey and Iraqi Kurdistan, and an official at one of three oil companies that deal in IS-smuggled oil.

The Iraqi colonel, who along with US investigators is working on a way to stop terrorist finance streams, told al-Araby about the stages that the smuggled oil goes through from the points of extraction in Iraqi oil fields to its destination – notably including the port of Ashdod, Israel…

Once in Turkey, the lorries continue to the town of Silopi, where the oil is delivered to a person who goes by the aliases of Dr Farid, Hajji Farid and Uncle Farid.

Uncle Farid is an Israeli-Greek dual national in his fifties. (Al-Araby)

If the Kurds are really in Syria and Iraq fighting ISIS™, why are they allowing the flow of this stolen oil to cross areas they control to be processed and sold in tankers bearing the seal of Iraqi Kurdistan?

For that matter, why are the fanatical Muslims selling their stolen oil to the Jewish state at such low, low prices?

Could it have anything to do with the fact that Israel has been a huge supporter of the corrupt Barzani dictatorship in Iraqi Kurdistan for years?

News published in the Financial Times on Sunday that Israel imports most of its oil from Iraq’s Kurdish areas came as no shock to those following the secretive Israel-Kurd relationship.

“The news is not so surprising, as it has been going on for some time,” Prof. Ofra Bengio, editor of the book Kurdish Awakening: Nation-Building in a Fragmented Homeland, told The Jerusalem Post on Monday…

Bengio pointed out that the Kurdish religious affairs ministry recently made an unusual move by including a Jewish representative in its work, adding that the timing was interesting…

“The Kurds must take Israel as model for their democracy, the only one in the region,” he said, noting that it could be of use when the Kurds gain independence. (JP)

Could it have anything to do with the fact that Israel and the neocons here in the states are busy trying to create something called Greater Kurdistan (did you notice the title of that book?) and they need the unregulated revenues from the stolen oil to carry on their latest dirty war?

Let us note, by the way, that as from now, the Regional Kurdish Government of Iraq is a dictatorship. Its President, Massoud Barzani, who is a Mossad agent set up by the United Kingdom and the United States, has been hanging onto power since the end of his mandate in June 2013 …

… The parties in the conflict will not announce that they are making war in order to create an Israeli colonial state, thus creating a pincer situation to the disadvantage of the resistant Arab states, but as soon as it becomes necessary, they will declare that they are fighting for an independent « Kurdistan » – a grotesque position since the territory concerned has never in history belonged to Kurdistan, and that the Kurds are in the minority here (less than 30 % of the population). (Voltaire)

Though his work on this subject is good, Thierry does make a few omissions in his article, the most obvious being that he states that the oil tankers seen stealing Syrian oil end up crossing into Turkey. The mistake is he omits a rather important part of the process, which, detailed above, shows that the stolen oil heads first to Iraqi Kurdistan where it is semi-refined in order to allow it to pass Turkish regulatory requirements and then transferred to official Iraqi Kurdistan Government marked tankers. That last step in the process makes the stolen oil impossible to delineate from legal oil reserves extracted from the Kurdistan region.

That omission aside, it’s a good read.

The project for Greater Kurdistan (as I have taken to call it) has been around for a while. Here’s a map showing the “new Middle East” as published in the Armed Forces Journal back in 2006 when Condi Rice was talking about the project. Notice how much of Turkey and Syria “Free Kurdistan” occupies?

Back in Sept. of 2014, an article titled “Why Not Kurdistan?” explains the project in a little more updated detail complete with a more ambitious map:

To this end, Kurds argue that their nation is overdue. The Kurdish diaspora, over Iraq, Syria, Iran, and Turkey, feel, perhaps rightly, oppressed and nationless. The Kurds have seen what they view to have been broken promises in the reformation of Iraq. Processes that presumably would eventually lead to a fully sovereign state have been delayed or not implemented at all. (Shaun Terry)

Then in Jan. of 2015, Foreign Policy magazine began pushing the same Greater Kurdistan idea: what they happened to call Great Kurdistan. They wrote it would be the next nation to be built.

The 30 million Kurds of the Middle East don’t only live in Iraq, of course. But all of them are feeling the tremors of change. Iran, which has a significant Kurdish minority of its own, is strengthening its ties with the KRG, which it views as a vital ally in the fight against IS. In Syria, the civil war has enabledKurds to set up wide-ranging self-administration in the northeast of the country — thus eroding the border between Syrian and Iraqi Kurds, who now travel back and forth across the line without visas. And in Turkey, home to the region’s largest Kurdish minority, the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has abandoned long-held policies aimed at the suppression of a distinct Kurdish identity and is conducting peace talks with the Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK), responsible for a decade-long insurgency in eastern Turkey.

All of this means that the Kurds, who enjoy the unenviable status of the world’slargest nation without a state, now find themselves on the verge of establishing their first viable national homeland. (Foreign Policy)

In Feb. of 2015, The Economist quoted one of the Barzani clan saying the Greater Kurdistan project would be complete in 2 years.

For the birth of an independent Kurdistan, the omens have never been so propitious. “We have waited long enough,” says Sirwan Barzani, a grandson of Mustafa Barzani (1903-79), the Kurds’ legendary leader whose descendants are in the vanguard of today’s fledgling state. “It has been a hundred years since we were divided between the four devils,” he says, referring to the regional carve-up of Kurdish lands after the first world war between the rump of Ottoman Turkey, Iran, Syria (then run by France) and Mesopotamia (run by Britain, and soon to become Iraq). “We will be independent within two years.” (The Economist Feb. 2015)

That same month, neocons David Petraeus and Dov Zakheim attended a forum here in the states which seems to have been laying the groundwork for the nation building exercise.

This unique conference will convene prominent experts, academics and policymakers from around the world, and foster diverse and rigorous dialogue on the unprecedented challenges currently facing the Middle East. The focus areas of the Forum include geopolitical dynamics in Iraq, Syria, Iran and Turkey, in addition to security, the humanitarian crisis, Kurdish affairs, energy and economic developments in the region.  For more information on the Sulaimani Forum or the Institute of Regional and International studies, please contact [email protected] (Sulaimani Forum website)

It seems the plan was a “go” and everyone was jumping on board, even the “libertarian” Rand Paul who’s ideology is supposed to mean he is opposed to nation building as a general rule.

“I would draw new lines for Kurdistan and I would promise them a country,” (Rand Paul)

But why then? Why the rush to bust off a piece of Syria and Turkey and hand it over to the Mossad assets, the Barzani clan? Why did Greater Kurdistan suddenly rise to the top of Obama’s to-do list at that particular moment?

This might be a clue:

The Turkish Stream is a working name of the proposed natural gas pipelinefrom the Russian Federation to Turkey across the Black Sea. The proposal was announced by Russian president Vladimir Putin on 1 December 2014, during his state visit to Turkey. The proposed pipeline should replace the cancelled South Stream project. According to Gazprom, the project does not have an official name yet. (Wiki)

So in Dec. of 2014, Putin met with Erdogan and announced plans to build a massive pipeline transporting Russian LNG from the Russian Federation to the Black Sea and from there to energy starved markets in Europe.

This project replaced the proposed South Stream project which was put on hold thanks to the Obama/Soros regime change operation in Ukraine.

This may have been the final straw for the West concerning Erdogan who had recently rejected taking out another loan from the IMF.

So let’s fast-forward a couple months.

Russia begins targeting those oil tanker convoys heading to Iraqi Kurdistan to be switched out to Kurdistan Regional Government marked tankers and shuttled over to Turkey to be purchased by the Israeli-Greek black market dealer and eventually shipped over to Israel.

Russia, while targeting our CIA destabilization “moderates” in Syria, makes the mistake of letting the US know in advance of their targets and more importantly, the flight paths of their fighters operating inside Syria.

“We told our US partners in advance where, when at what altitudes our pilots were going to operate. The US-led coalition, which includes Turkey, was aware of the time and place where our planes would operate. And this is exactly where and when we were attacked. Why did we share this information with the Americans? Either they don’t control their allies, or they just pass this information left and right without realizing what the consequences of such actions might be. We will have to have a serious talk with our US partners.’ (Zero Hedge)

It would seem the US then transferred that information over to the Turkish military, who by the way, just happens to be more than a little upset at the current government since they reduced the military’s influence in the government of the country.

As of late, there have been a number of reports which suggest the Turkish military is reasserting itself into the realm of politics in the country in a big way. Take for examplethis al-Monitor article written in Oct. of 2015.

For example, journalist and academic Halil Karaveli believes that the crisis environment in the country has returned the military to politics, and that the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) government, which has put an end to the solution process with the Kurds, has submitted to the armed services. Karaveli is a senior fellow with the Turkey Initiative at the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute & Silk Road Studies Program Joint Center and managing editor of its publication, The Turkey Analyst. He thinks that the military now controls the AKP….

It is not a secret that the views of the AKP and the military don’t mesh on purging the pro-Gulenist elements said to have infiltrated the armed forces…

Also attracting attention now is how the military high command is refusing to send soldiers into inhabited locations, despite politicians’ demands. There are also other areas where the army can say no to Erdogan, such as the armed forces’ determination to stay out of politics without rupturing its realist position on Syria, its refusal to conduct a mass Gulenist purge in its ranks and its adherence to close relations with NATO and the United States. (al-Monitor)

That article goes a long way in explaining a couple of seemingly contradictory facts surrounding the recent downing of the Russian fighter in Syria.

According to that article, the military isn’t really taking orders from anyone, much less Erdogan as they develop a very close relationship with the United States and NATO to serve their own interests.

Also of note is the fact that the article states that pro-Gulen elements are infiltrating the military leadership and the rest of that leadership seems reluctant to purge them.

So… did Erdogan really give the order to down a Russian fighter jet on some trumped up charge or was it the pro-US, pro-NATO, pro-Gulen leadership of the surging Turkish military that did it?

Either way you look at it, the end result might just be the demolition of the Turkish Stream pipeline deal (and who’s interests does that serve?)

The question was looming whether Russia would be willing to jeopardize “Turkish Stream,” a natural gas pipeline intended to channel Russian Gas to Turkey and, thereon, to the Balkans. As a market in its own right, Turkey is the second-largest buyer of Russian gas after Germany according to Politico. The answer is yes.

On Thursday, the Russian Minister of development, Alexei Ulyukayev, said that Russia is cancelling Turkish Stream and is considering cancelling a contract for the construction of the Akkuyu nuclear reactor in Mersin province. (New Europe)

Many have asked if Erdogan did not approve of the downing of the Russian jet, why he wouldn’t come forward and say he had nothing to do with the decision and throw the military leadership of his country under the bus.

This article from al-Monitor seems to suggest such an act would be essentially a suicide note for Erdogan. If the military is poised to take charge and reluctant to weed out from it’s ranks the supporters of the neoliberal Gulen, for Erdogan to make such a pronouncement would be essentially an act of war against Turkey’s own military. That’s probably not a good idea. You can ask Morsi about that or the former elected president of Thailand.

When you consider all the contradictions taking place right now in Syria such as the Kurds fighting ISIS™ while buying and profiting off their stolen oil… the radical Islamic ISIS™ selling their stolen resources to the Jewish state… everyone forgetting to mention the fact that the stolen oil is transferred to official Kurdish Regional Government trucks… the United States failing to target those convoys for the entire year they’ve been fighting ISIS™… and the NATO supporting Turkish military being spoon fed specific information regarding the flight path of that Russian fighter before it took off yet somehow everyone blames Erdogan for the event …

When you consider all of that coupled with the timing of the burgeoning Greater Kurdistan project and the Russian/Turkish Turkish Stream pipeline deal (which has now been sunk by the pro-NATO pro-US Turkish military) you have to come to a very different conclusion than that the MSM and some complicit alternative websites would have you believe.

I’m sure it’s easier to regurgitate the current propaganda to others saying Erdogan did it because his son is buying all the ISIS™ oil but that explanation falls short on so many levels it’s almost as laughable as saying they attacked on 9/11 because “they hate us for our freedoms”

But if you take the time to dig into it, into the history which isn’t really that old or that well hidden, you just might find a more rational explanation for all of this and one that certainly dovetails perfectly with the rest of the Grand Chessboard project.

They said Assad was buying the oil and supporting ISIS™.

They said Erdogan was buying the oil and supporting ISIS™.

All while they continue to arrest folks in France for supporting ISIS™.

Pretty soon they’ll be taking down websites because they support ISIS™.

But who really supports what they call ISIS™? Who buys their stolen Syrian oil? Who profits from it? Who hides it in their tankers and who ships it to their nations? Who makes their videos? Who justifies bombing Syrian infrastructure by claiming they are attacking ISIS™?

And ultimately, who really runs Turkey and had a motive to shoot down the Turkish Stream pipeline deal?

When you look at it in that context, all those seeming contradictions start to make perfect sense, don’t they?

ISIS – Intelligence Agencies Creation And Asset (VIDEOS)

Now that the dust has settled in Paris from the latest “False Flag” mission to herd the sheeple into a pen of jingoistic fervor, the blood flow coming out of the latest version of Comité De Salut Public would make Robespierre proud. Setting the context, dauntless ex-CIA  Michael Scheuer out does his usual perceptive analysis. 

“Honoring Paris’s dead and wounded is now being done with crocodile tears, candles, moments of silence, crowds of strangers holding hands, pledges of solidarity, the endless, pro forma singing of national anthems, and bouquets of followers mounded up as colorful, if wilting, temples to the dead. 

None of this nonsense honors anyone, it is simply another meaningless iteration of the made-for-TV, post-Islamist-attack “Festival of the Dead”, an event to which Westerners seem to be intensely attached and are now institutionalizing.” 

The remainder of his essay is published on  and provides a true alternative to the failed policies that maintain endless war for a Greater Israel. The same parade of mourners for the collateral damage targeted from terrorist assets created and sponsored by Western Intelligence services, have an existential mental blockage accepting the true architects behind the carnage.  

Before timid deniers of the cold hard facts on how the world really operates dismiss this conclusion, take the time to do your own research and evaluation. Start with the links on Who Sponsors the Islamic State (ISIS)?  

Next face up to the documentation that proves the Faustian bargain entered into by Western governments and their intelligent services that create and fund militant adversaries to keep the chaos going. Secret Pentagon Report Reveals US “Created” ISIS As A “Tool” To Overthrow Syria’s President Assad is an important disclosure. 

“Among the batch of documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit, released earlier this week, is a US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document then classified as “secret,” dated 12th August 2012.Judicial Watch, shows that Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad. 

According to investigative reporter Nafeez Ahmed in Medium, the “leaked document reveals that in coordination with the Gulf states and Turkey, the West intentionally sponsored violent Islamist groups to destabilize Assad, despite anticipating that doing so could lead to the emergence of an ‘Islamic State’ in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).” 

Even with a causal exposure within the main stream media, it is difficult not to hear the savage attacks that blame the Snowden revelations, which compromised security and intelligence methods. Before swallowing the usual fear rhetoric, dig deeper and link the dots. The account, Snowden Bombshell: ISIS Leader CIA/MI5 Asset, Trained By Israel presents the linkage that most “PC” conditioned acolytes refuse to accept.  

“The former employee at US National Security Agency (NSA), Edward Snowden, has revealed that the British and American intelligence and the Mossad worked together to create the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Snowden said intelligence services of three countries created a terrorist organisation that is able to attract all extremists of the world to one place, using a strategy called “the hornet’s nest”. 

NSA documents refer to recent implementation of the hornet’s nest to protect the Zionist entity by creating religious and Islamic slogans. 

According to documents released by Snowden, “The only solution for the protection of the Jewish state “is to create an enemy near its borders”. 

The C-SPAN video ISIS revealed as ISRAELI SECRET INTELLIGENCE SERVICE is not easily brushed aside. Such an interview will not take place on network broadcasts.  

If you have an open mind, the report by Pete Papaherakles in the American Free Press, Is ‘IS’ a CIA-Mossad Creation? – reveals startling information. “The leader of the radical Islamic State (IS), Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been reputed to be a Mossad-trained operative whose real name is Elliot Shimon, the son of Jewish parents.” 

The Gulf News source reports that ISIS Leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi Trained by Israeli Mossad, NSA Documents Reveal, adds: “Leaks revealed that ISIS leader and cleric Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi took intensive military training for a whole year in the hands of Mossad, besides courses in theology and the art of speech.” 

At this point you should be asking just how this ISIS threat got its start and where did the funding originally come from. A former Iranian minister of intelligence, Heydar Moslehi, urges you to look towards the usual keepers of the secrets. Iran Says ISIS Created by U.S., Britain, Zionism, CIA, Mossad and MI6 “Moslehi said the coalition was a “bazeecheh” — a Persian word meaning a “plaything” or a “trifling amusement.” Islamic State, Moslehi said, was created by “the triangle of Mossad, MI6, and the CIA,” a reference to the Israeli, British, and U.S. intelligence agencies.” 

Do not think for a minute that the French intelligence agencies are purely operating in the interests of France. The controversial case presented on Former French Foreign Minister – Israel Controls French Intelligence, should not be rejected out of hand. Former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas referred in a book he published entitled “Coups et blessures” (Assaults and Injuries), that “The “Israelis” are doing whatever they want in France, and are controlling the French Intelligence with what serves them”. 

The shadow governments are running the operations. Watch the Smoking gun proof that ISIS is a CIA/MOSSAD/MI6 job???, video.  

Allow your common sense to ask, Where Does ISIS Get All Those Tanks, Weapons And Shiny New Toyota Trucks? 

Toyota trucks aren’t all ISIS has managed to buy, capture or scavenge from us. In June, CNBC reported that so far we’ve accidentally furnished the Islamic State with at least $219.7 million worth of weapons, vehicles and other military supplies and gear — and that’s just the stuff we know about. 

Based on various reports, CNBC came up with the following laundry list of supplies the U.S. has so kindly provided to ISIS so far. 

2,300 Humvee armored vehicles at $70,000 each: $16 million 

40 M1A1 Abram tanks at $4.3 million each: $172 million 

52 M198 Howitzer mobile gun systems at $527,337 each: $2.7 million 

74,000 Army machine guns at $4,000 each: $29 million 

Surely this cache of arms was not acquired on ebay. Who has the budget to fund this armament supply and even more important the sources for the transfer? Believing that Iraqi forces simply abandoned the stash rings of having a bazeecheh newspeak script.  

isisbibi_jpg_w300h236ISIS has become the global scourge and is being hyped up as the latest crusade against the infidel. Islamic jihadists by any reasonable definition are not benign victims. However, when intelligence services encourage, plot, subsidize and support militant terrorists to become suicide bombers, the bloodline that benefits from the constructed threat must be acknowledged.  

Sentiment from Rabbi Dov Lior, Controversial rabbi says Paris attacks punishment for Holocaust, is despicable. Just how much of this mindset is behind Zionist thinking? Lacking in any serious discussion about ISIS is the absence of any attack by this deadly force of demented Muslim extremists on Israel. 

If the danger of a caliphate is the utmost threat that the establishment propagandists would have you believe, what is the difference in the way the Israeli’s conduct their affairs?  

Permanent terrorism is the ultimate growth endeavor no matter who is waging the violence. The intelligence services are at the forefront of engaging in perpetual acts of terrorism. America needs to take back control of its foreign policy by dumping Israel as an ally.  

Examine the steps to restore sanity submitted in the Washington Blog, Nine Ways to Stop Terrorism. 

I. Stop Overthrowing the Moderates and Arming the Crazies

II. Stop Supporting the Dictators Who Fund Terrorists

III. Stop Bombing and Invading When a Negotiated Settlement Is Offered

IV. Stop Imperial Conquests for Arab Oil

V. Stop Drone Assassinations of Innocent Civilians

VI. Stop Torture

VII. Stop Mass Surveillance

VIII. Stop Covering Up 9/11

IX.  Stop Doing It Ourselves 

The Paris massacre is a game changer that will intensify the same mistakes made over decades of shadow government conspiracy operations run by their own intelligence agencies. As incidences of further panic spread, just keep in mind that the globalists are intensifying their reign of terror. 

Go back and study in depth the six point steps made by Michael Scheuer, On cutting the crap, breaking the Caliphate’s back, and focusing on America. He ends his case:

“If successful, it allows the United States to bid farewell to the Middle East – leaving it to whoever is stupid enough to want to be involved — and begin to focus on genuine U.S. national interests, like reducing the debt, controlling the borders, rebuilding the conventional military, severely limiting immigration, withdrawing from NATO, evicting illegal aliens, eliminating domestic Islamist organizations, and generally minding our own business.” 

The Sumner Redstone version on the Showtime series Homeland will never portray the real terrorists. Are you mature enough to follow the wisdom in this Scheuer message or would you rather believe treasonous intelligence spooks?

Former U.S. Marine: “We Are ISIS”

Former U.S. Marine and veteran of the Gulf War, Kenneth O’Keefe, is an activist and has his own TV program. (Photo credit:

Kenneth O’Keefe, a former U.S. Marine, has been making headlines for his straightforward speech about the West’s involvement in the war on terror, especially when it comes to the war against ISIS.

What has shocked the most people, who watch O’Keefe’s interviews on news outlets, is not necessarily his straightforwardness but the 180-degree paradigm shift that his statements reveal.

According to O’Keefe, who has appeared on news channels such as RT, PressTV and is often quoted on and, the name ISIS, which the mainstream media say is the Islamic State, is in reality more like the Israeli Secret Intelligence Services.

O’keefe says that is outrageous to think that ISIS has turned into what it is today all by itself, just as it is absurd to believe that Al-Qaeda became a household name because of its own merits.

“There was no Al-Qaeda in Iraq prior to the U.S. invading that country in 2013,” says O’Keefe. Seemingly, ISIS is also a creation of the West.

The so-called Islamic State is now being supported by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, both American proxy governments in the Middle East region.

“I hope [the Paris attacks] are a wake-up call for all of us to realize that we are ISIS,” explained O’Keefe on PressTV. Western governments are in bed with Saudi Arabia, who is the primary funder of ISIS along with Qatar and other Gulf states.”

O’Keefe says that the United States and his allies in the region are not only providing political and military assistance to Saudi Arabia while it slaughters innocent people in Yemen but also providing the cover for ISIS in Syria and other parts of the world.

“I believe that is beyond any doubt for any sensible person to realize that not only is the United States providing the financial cover, political cover and military cover to these terrorists through our proxies, but we are also, in a purely technical sense, providing training to these people along with Turkey.”

According to O’keefe, Turkey has also been serving as a vessel for ISIS militants to get into Syria.

Earlier this year, video footage surfaced where Turkish forces were providing transport means to ISIS terrorists to get into Syria. The same has been happening in Jordan, another American ally that has also been providing cover for ISIS forces.

“As long as we are all fighting each other, as long as we are not trusting each other, as long as we are simply being played as pawns, then they can maintain this tyrannical system of never ending war,” warned O’Keefe.

This former U.S. Marine was discharged from his position during the Gulf War for speaking against the abuses being committed by the American government and the American military.

O’Keefe also attempted to renounce his American citizenship for the same reason he decided to speak up in the early 1990s.

“What is happening in Paris is us. We are responsible for our corrupt government and for all of these policies.”

O’Keefe added that even if the terrorists are working directly for ISIS, Mossad, Al-Qaeda and other terror organizations, and even if they carried out the attacks in an organic way, the kind of mayhem that the attack cause is exactly what western governments want, because it favors the enactment of the same policies that resulted from the 9/11 attacks, the 7/7 attacks and the ones recently adopted by the French government.

O’Keefe is currently a double citizen of Ireland and Palestine.

Propaganda works. Government statements and Israeli media one-sidedly highlight Palestinian “terror” attacks, mindless of reality on the ground.

Most Israelis have no idea or concern about what’s going on inside Palestine – including longstanding occupation harshness, state-sponsored terror against an entire population, a new generation of Palestinian youths demanding freedom, justifiably resisting collective punishment and denial of their fundamental rights.

A new Tel Aviv University/Israel Democracy Institute Guttman Center for Surveys Peace Index poll shows three-fourths of Israelis don’t understand how horrifically Palestinians are persecuted – in contrast to Arabs overwhelmingly fearing it acutely.

Jews live normally. Palestinians have no control over their daily lives. Most Jews shockingly agree with the following statement: “(A)ny Palestinian who has perpetrated a terror attack against Jews (true or false) should be killed on the spot, even if he has been apprehended and no longer poses a threat.”

They support punishing family members of Palestinians accused of terrorism, including demolishing their homes – mindless that most accusations are fabricated.

In contrast, they support no action against Jews killing Palestinians, even without just cause. They feel military tribunal injustice against Palestinians accused of terrorism is too light.

Pollsters asked: “What in your opinion, should each of the following institutions or groups be given for how it has dealt with the current terror wave?”

The IDF scored highest with a 93% approval rating. Police scored 84.5%, Shin Bet (security) 72% – showing Jews don’t understand reality on the ground.

They don’t know or care about how viciously Palestinians are persecuted – including daily state-sponsored assassinations, thousands injured, along with mass arrests, imprisonments and torture.

Poll results reflect a racist Israeli society, state-sponsored indoctrination from childhood to hate Arabs, portraying them as violent gun-or-knife-toting terrorists – mindless of their humanity and international law guaranteed rights.

Former finance minister, Yesh Atid party chairman, believes Palestinians accused of threatening Israelis “should be (lethally) shot…” Numerous other fascist Israeli politicians feel the same way, especially Netanyahu and his security ministers.

Pollsters didn’t ask but likely few Israeli Jews know the extent of administrative detentions – Palestinians locked up behind bars indefinitely, uncharged and untried, entirely for political reasons, innocent victims in gulag hell, currently at least 500 including children, according to Commission of Palestinian Detainee Affairs head Issa Qaraqe.

Young children and women are treated like men, targeted for wanting justice denied them – including social web site comments Israel calls “incitement.”

On the eve of the second Intifada, Israel held 12 administrative detainees. Two years later it was over 1,000. Things appear headed in the same direction now, new administrative detentions ordered daily. Victims have no right of appeal.

Speaking at an Amsterdam 77th Kristallnacht anniversary event, Arab MK Hanin Zoabi accused Israel of high crimes similar to Nazi-perpetrated ones.

“I am not an immigrant in my homeland,” she said. Scores of discriminatory laws are similar to how Hitler persecuted Jews, she explained.

“The current lesson of the Crystal Night has not been learned.” Israel’s slow-motion genocide, “ethnic cleansing” policy is modeled on how Nazis aimed to exterminate Jews. Israeli officials ‘justify the use of violence toward Palestinians.”

Zoabi quoted education minister Naftali Bennett saying “(i) is OK to kill Arabs. I have actually done so several times.” She warned of “great forces” seeking to silence pro-Palestinian voices in Europe.

State-sponsored terror rages as Netanyahu meets with Obama at the White House on Monday – their support for each other’s high crimes rock solid despite dislike for each other.

Expect nothing beneficial from the meeting for Palestinians. They remain isolated on their own, virtually ignored by the world community, mindless of their longstanding suffering at the hands of a ruthless occupier.

Chilling Video Shows Israeli Soldier Assassinating A Wounded Palestinian


The self-styled world’s most moral army is a mobilized gang of assassins, ignoring fundamental rule of law principles, operating by their own exclusively, killing and brutalizing ruthlessly.

On October 31, the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) showed video evidence of an Israeli soldier assassinating 23-year-old Jabal Johar as he lay wounded, bleeding, helpless on the ground.

Two days before the incident, Amnesty International said “Israeli forces have carried out a series of unlawful killings of Palestinians using intentional lethal force without justification.”

“Willful killings of Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories are grave breaches of the Fourth Geneva Convention, over which all states can exercise universal jurisdiction” to prosecute offenders when nations where they reside can’t or fail to do so.

“Mahdi Mohtaseb, who is survived by four brothers, four sisters, and many grieving family and loved ones, joins the daily rising death toll of mostly Palestinian youths gunned down by Israeli forces and Israeli settlers since October 1st,” said ISM.

The video circulated online. Muhtasib was murdered close to the Salaymeh checkpoint in Hebron’s old city, a flashpoint area for numerous Israeli atrocities.

He lay helpless still moving his arms and legs. An Israeli soldier lethally shot him in the back at point blank range. ISM volunteers said he was supposed to meet his fiancee later that day (October 29).

An IDF spokesman lied, claiming the soldier foiled a stabbing attack. Video evidence showed otherwise. Daily cold blooded murders continue. Israel’s racist killing fields show no mercy.

Netanyahu’s Latest Ethnic Cleansing Scheme: Forcibly Displacing East Jerusalem Arab Residents


It’s hard believing he’s considering something this outrageous. Israeli media report he may revoke the longtime Arab population’s permanent residency status, his scheme for curbing Israeli initiated violence, a sure-fire way to increase it exponentially throughout the Occupied Territories.

The fate of over 370,000 East Jerusalemites hangs in the balance. Netanyahu’s proposed scheme sounds ominously like Hitler loading Jews on trains for death camps.

Where will this huge population go if forcibly expelled? What does Netanyahu have in mind – greater ruthlessness and mass murder than already? For sure with full US support for whatever he does, no matter how outrageous!

Israel’s Channel 2 news said the scheme was discussed during a weekly security meeting earlier in October. Netanyahu was quoted saying: “We need to examine the possibility of canceling their residency. There needs to be a discussion about it.”

Permanent East Jerusalem Arab residency is de facto Israeli citizenship. Imagine another nation deciding to displace, deport or otherwise remove a significant segment of its population. Overwhelming world outrage would follow, likely punitive measures slapped on the offender.

Israel already imposed unprecedented East Jerusalem movement restrictions, adding checkpoints and erecting separation barriers between Jewish and Arab neighborhoods, encircling Palestinian ones, preventing them from entering or exiting without permission, subjecting them to intrusive searches, a clear example of collective punishment ignored by the world community.

Will it remain silent if Netanyahu implements his latest scheme?

According to Channel 2, no further discussions were held since the proposal was raised – focus so far on implementing other draconian measures.

Haaretz cited unnamed “sources in the prime minister’s bureau” saying no mass displacement plans were made. “There is no such process to revoke the residency or citizenship of thousands of people,” a source said.

Meanwhile, Israeli-instigated violence continued on Sunday into Monday. An unarmed Palestinian youth was lethally shot multiple times in front of a Beit Einun school. Israel then declared the area a closed military zone, blocked ambulance help from arriving, left him bleeding to death unattended, another of its state-sponsored crimes.

Israeli soldiers murdered a Palestinian schoolgirl, unarmed, threatening no one. Israel called her a knife-wielding terrorist, the Big Lie it repeats ad nauseam.

Eyewitnesses called her a “terrified” young girl. One said she was surrounded by seven or eight soldiers. They “checked her belongings in a schoolbag,” he said.

“She looked like she was around 14 years old. She went through a metal detector. In the school bag they found nothing and asked her, ‘Where’s the knife?’ “

“She said, ‘I don’t have a knife.’ Then they fired between her legs. She was terrified and moved back half a meter or a meter. She raised her arms in the air (again) saying ‘I don’t have a knife.’ “

“Then they shot eight to 10 bullets, but I don’t know exactly who was shooting. Then she fell on the ground.” Other eyewitnesses said soldiers prevented medical help from arriving to try saving her.

Youth Against Settlements director Issa Amer “call(ed) on the military to release video of the incident because there are several CCTV surveillance cameras that record everything in that area.” Israel wants none of its crimes revealed.

On Saturday, noted physician, political activist, human rights champion Mustafa Barghouthi was attacked by unknown assailants near his Ramallah home.

He was injured with a sharp tool, he explained – his attackers saying “let the Intifada protect you.” He reported the incident to Israeli authorities, demanding an investigation he won’t get.

Israeli security forces and settlers rampage freely against defenseless Palestinians, injuring and murdering them unaccountably.

World leaders ignore their suffering, doing no more than urging both sides to show restraint – an affront to persecuted Palestinians, a green light for Israel to continue trampling on an entire population with impunity.

Syria: Another Zionist War For Suckers (VIDEO)

 rothschild war

“If Barack Obama decides to attack the Syrian regime, he has ensured – for the very first time in history – that the United States will be on the same side as al-Qa’ida.” – Robert Fisk

Just like a broken clock, it tells correct time twice a day. Barack Hussein Obama’s promise to have Congress vote upon his Syria’s strike force plans is a first since the historic constitutional betrayal in the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. Even the feeble attempt in The War Powers Act of 1973, to place accountability on Imperial Presidents, routinely ignored by other POTUS, struck new heights of arrogance and abuses under this infamous Nobel Peace Prize President.   

The War Powers Resolution, generally known as the War Powers Act, was passed by Congress over President Nixon’s veto to increase congressional control over the executive branch in foreign policy matters, specifically in regard to military actions short of formally declared war. Its central provision prohibited the President from engaging in military actions for more than sixty days, unless Congress voted approval. 

The key Section 1541(c) reads: 

(c) Presidential Executive Power as Commander-in-Chief; Limitation The constitutional powers of the President as Commander-in-Chief to introduce United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances, are exercised only pursuant to (1) a declaration of war, (2) specific statutory authorization, or (3) a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces. 

The proposed authorization approval in both bodies of Congress on extending permission for unwarranted aggression against Syria promises to be the most significant vote on foreign policy in the last half century. How many false flag cons can a war weary public endure from the neoconservatives and liberal interventionists? The answer becomes clear, every measure of pain and suffering that the fifth column Zionists can extract.  

From Before It is News, the Hacked Email of US Intelligence Colonel Shows Pentagon’s Involvement In Chemical Attack In Syria article concludes that this documentation proves that the chemical attack was indeed a false flag operation. 

James Corbett provides a compelling summary in the YouTube video, Who Is Really Behind the Syrian War? He references an even more alarming analysis of the Oded Yinon Plan from Global Research. Their report “Greater Israel”: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East, by Michel Chossudovsky is a most significant account.   

“Greater Israel” requires the breaking up of the existing Arab states into small states. 

“The plan operates on two essential premises. To survive, Israel must 1) become an imperial regional power, and 2) must effect the division of the whole area into small states by the dissolution of all existing Arab states. Small here will depend on the ethnic or sectarian composition of each state. Consequently, the Zionist hope is that sectarian-based states become Israel’s satellites and, ironically, its source of moral legitimation…  This is not a new idea, nor does it surface for the first time in Zionist strategic thinking. Indeed, fragmenting all Arab states into smaller units has been a recurrent theme.” (Yinon Plan, see below) 

Viewed in this context, the war on Syria is part of the process of Israeli territorial expansion. Israeli intelligence working hand in glove with the US, Turkey and NATO is directly supportive of the Al Qaeda terrorist mercenaries inside Syria.The Zionist Project also requires the destabilization of Egypt, the creation of factional divisions within Egypt as instrumented by the “Arab Spring” leading to the formation of a sectarian based State dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood. 

The rabid sociopathic jingoism of the NeoCons is not in defense of the United States or the American people. No, their allegiance is to Zionism. The destructive foreign policy of the last four administrations is a strategic departure from post World War II objectives. Since an open debate about the harmful consequences, stemming out of a blind support for Israel is nearly nonexistent on Capital Hill, the task of setting the record straight falls upon a Canadian journalist, Joshua Blakeney to explain why Israel and client states want nobody to rule Syria 

“It ought to be kept in mind that the post-WWII US military doctrine for the Middle East was the Eisenhower Doctrine which promoted the fomentation of stability in the region to facilitate the flow of oil to Americans. This was fine if you were safely ensconced in Houston or Dallas with your oil companies raking in profits from Middle East oil fields but for Israel this policy was disastrous. The funneling of petro-dollars to Israel’s adversaries like Saddam Hussein, who fired scud missiles at Israel in 1991, and to the likes of President Assad was intolerable. Therefore a schism in the Empire soon emerged and two distinct US-Zionist visions for the Middle East crystallized.  

From the perspective of anti-neocon Realists, such as Walt (Stephen Walt, professor of International Relations at Harvard), the US has a vested interest in propping up Arab strongmen (like President Assad) who can create stability in their countries thus making them potentially hospitable for US corporations. For Zionist-neocons and their evil twin brothers, Liberal Interventionists, it is Israel’s regional dominance rather than US commerce which is of primary importance.”  

The prevailing attitude out of Israel regarding Syria is most revealing. The Jerusalem Post reports, Israelis want US, Europe to attack Syria, but against IDF intervention. “The US and European countries should attack Syria, but Israel should not be involved in the assault, two polls in weekend Hebrew newspapers found.”  

When Congress voices their will, their true colors will show. Mournfully, most beltway tools are dual loyalists, no matter what their heritage. Just who will be making the decision? AIPAC must be burning up multi IOU’s. When representative “pols” see only white and blue in their flag and forget the red tint that stands for the sacrifice of patriotic blood on foreign soil, the country is betrayed.    

Mr. Blakeney continues on the danger of relinquishing a pro America First foreign policy: 

“The Israeli-neocon 9/11 coup d’état allowed the pro-destabilization, Zionist faction of the US elite to seize the reins of power. Since then we’ve seen the implementation of the Destabilization Doctrine, which, as stated, is the polar opposite of the less malignant post-WWII Eisenhower Doctrine. The now notorious Oded Yinon plan, authored by the Israeli geostrategic analyst in 1982, offers the clearest manifesto for the Israeli destabilization of the Middle East. Yinon argued the following:  

“Lebanon’s total dissolution into five provinces serves as a precedent for the entire Arab world including Egypt, Syria, Iraq and the Arabian peninsula and is already following that track. The dissolution of Syria and Iraq later on into ethnically or religiously unique areas such as in Lebanon, is Israel’s primary target on the Eastern front in the long run, while the dissolution of the military power of those states serves as the primary short term target. Syria will fall apart, in accordance with its ethnic and religious structure, into several states such as in present day Lebanon, so that there will be a Shia Alawi state along its coast, a Sunni state in the Aleppo area, another Sunni state in Damascus hostile to its northern neighbor, and the Druzes who will set up a state, maybe even in our Golan, and certainly in the Hauran and in northern Jordan. This state of affairs will be the guarantee for peace and security in the area in the long run, and that aim is already within our reach today.” 

Many Americans are chumps when they think Israel is our ally. When will the anti-war progressives mount an Occupy Wall Street style effort to avoid another dangerous and avoidable involvement? Norman Solomon writing in warns. “The administration is about to launch a ferocious propaganda blitz that will engulf a wide range of U.S. media. And as a fallback, the president is reserving the option of attacking Syria no matter what Congress does.” 

Pat Buchanan has it correct as usual. “The idea that we would launch unilaterally a war against a country that has not attacked us or threatened us without the authorization of the Congress, which has the power to declare war — it seems to me is an act of almost insanity.” 

A record of indisputable conduct proves that the foreign policy establishment routinely operates against the best interests of the nation. Just how many citizens realize that the Yinon Plan is actually the operational context under which stratagem functions? 

It is certainly likely that the puppet president will just lie his way out of another box of his own creation. However, what is it gonna take for the public to break with the incompetent buffoon, who sits on the nuclear codes?  

Syria is a target for the reason Buchanan cites. “The neocons realize that if they can get us to attack Syria and there’s a real possibility that there will be retaliatory attacks on Americans or attacks on Israel which will then cause the Israelis or the Americans to attack Syria’s allies in Iran — Syria is the backdoor to war with Iran.” 

Almost sounds like the Yinon Plan is following the script that the Zionists provided to their U.S. benefactors.  

 “The war in Syria has no clear national security connection to the United States and victory by either side will not necessarily bring in to power people friendly to the United States.” – Senator Rand Paul

Is Jordan Switching Sides?

jordan flag

On Friday, Sputnik News, RT International, the Jordan Times and Reuters said Russian and Jordanian officials agreed to establish a “special working mechanism” to share information on counterterrorism operations in Syria.

“Under an agreement between His Majesty King Abdullah II and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, the militaries of the two countries have agreed to coordinate their actions, including military aircraft missions over the Syrian territory,” Sergey Lavrov explained. He urged other nations to join their coalition against a common enemy.

Jordan’s communications minister Mohammad Momani said “military cooperation…between (both countries) concerns southern Syria and aims to ensure security of the Kingdom’s northern frontier.”

“Jordan remains an active member of the international coalition fighting the Da’esh terror group.” Coordination between both countries isn’t new, he added. It’s been developing for some time at all levels.

Reuters said “Moscow’s deal with Jordan could mark a shift in the alliances engaged in the Syria conflict.” Jordan’s ambassador to Moscow Aiad al-Majali said establishing a “special working mechanism” to share information on Syrian operations increases military cooperation between both countries to an unprecedented level.

“It will not be just in a format of informations exchange,” he explained. “(W)e see a necessity ‘to be on the ground’ as Jordan has a border with Syria.”

“(W)hen it comes to combating terrorism, we have to” increase Amman/Moscow cooperation. Discussions have been ongoing for some time. How this affects US regional operations remains to be seen.

Jordan is a longtime US ally, an Israeli one since their October 1994 peace treaty, both countries at the time pledging neither would let its territory be used as a staging ground for military attacks by a third country, a promise broken practically before the ink was dry.

Washington works with both countries to advance its imperium, freely using their territory. Is Jordan now shifting alliances?

It lets CIA and Pentagon operatives along with British and French instructors train ISIS fighters covertly at a secret military location, sending them across its porous 375 km border with Syria to fight Assad’s government.

Jordan’s apparent willingness to join Russia’s campaign likely reflects concern about extremist elements biting the hand that’s been feeding them.

Their ambitions go way beyond Syria and Iraq. They may have Jordan and Lebanon in mind next with other countries to follow if they’re not stopped.

Putin’s main concern is their presence in Afghanistan, likely intending to expand to Central Asia, especially Russia.

Russian intelligence estimates around 3,500 militants in Afghanistan, their numbers increasing – US, UK, Arab and Pakistani instructors training them.

Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate chief Col. Gen. Igor Sergun said ISIS elements see Afghanistan as a rich recruiting ground, a foothold for expanding into Central Asia – why Putin believes it’s urgent to defeat them in their current strongholds.

Does Jordan now share the same view? Another body blow to Washington’s hegemonic agenda if so.
