Jew Loving is the Way Forward

loveyourfellow jew.jpg
Once a week, a British Jewish institution publishes statistics that measure how much Jews are hated by their neighbours and how unhappy the Jews are in the kingdom. No other people thinks to measure and publish the statistics of their popularity.  A new poll by the Campaign Against Antisemitsm (CAA) published yesterday, reveals that one in six British Jews (17%) reported feeling unwelcome in Britain. Over a third (37%) said they had felt the need to conceal their Judaism in public. As if this weren’t devastating enough, 31% of British Jews have considered moving abroad. And as you might expect, 80% reckon that the Labour party is too tolerant of anti-Semitism.
However, another poll conducted by YouGov for the same CAA, also published yesterday, found that anti-Semitic attitudes in UK society  declined from 45% in 2015 to 36% in 2017.
So while the Brits are rapidly becoming less ‘antisemitic’ the Jews are growing increasingly fearful of their neighbours.
How do we explain this anomaly? The less hated British Jews are, the more insecure they seem to feel.
If these statistics reveal a genuine behavioural dynamic, then we can assume that by the time British society is entirely consumed by love and admiration for their Jews, there won’t be a single Jew left in the kingdom. The Jews will all wander off to places where they can be genuinely hated.
Amalek, Khmelnytskyi, Hitler were all wrong! Jew hatred doesn’t break the Jews, on the contrary it seems to empower their existential enthusiasm. It is love that diminishes Jewish confidence. True harmony may as well, obliterates the tactics of  tribal survival.
This is not an original observation.  There was a Jew who was around a while back who realised that loving your neighbour is the way forward. He was nailed to some wood but he came back. Of course, discussing love may cost me a few gig cancelations, but I will surely bounce back.

I have never expected to agree with Dershowitz

By Gilad Atzmon

In this video, Alan Dershowitz, the ethnic cleansing enthusiast, speaks against  Antifa and AltLeft’s hooliganism. His argument is, indeed valid! It is worth watching.
However,  let us not forget that Dershowitz is far from being a supporter of freedom of speech or the 1st amendment. Dershowitz has worked hard to silence many intellectual careers. He obliterated  Norman Finkelstein’s academic career. He struggled  to stop both  my music  as well as  literary careers mounting pressure on America’s leading scholars, humanists and intellectual institutes.

So you ask yourself why Dershowitz opposes the Antifa?
It is probably not because he cares for America. The Antifa is funded  by George Soros and Dershowitz regards Soros as an enemy of Israel and Zionism.  At the end of the day, every crucial political debate is always reduced into a Jewish internal dispute. I guess that Dershowitz believes that it is better to keep the fight within  the shtetl.

Afghanistan is ripe for proxy war

By M K Bhadrakumar | Indian Punchline | August 20, 2017
Russia has hinted in the past that the United States is covertly sponsoring the Islamic State in Afghanistan. On Thursday, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson raised the bar by alleging that “foreign fighters” who were transferred by “unknown helicopters” have perpetrated a massacre of Hazara Shias in the Sar-e-Pol province in northern Afghanistan. The spokesperson said:
  • We can see attempts to stir up ethnic conflict in the country… Cases of unidentified helicopter flights to territory controlled by extremists in other northern provinces of Afghanistan are also recorded. For example, there is evidence that on August 8, four helicopters made flights from the airbase of the Afghan National Army’s 209th corps in Mazar-i-Sharif to the area captured by the militants in the Aqcha district of the Jowzjan province. It is noteworthy that witnesses of these flights began to fall off the radar of law enforcement agencies. It seems that the command of the NATO forces controlling the Afghan sky stubbornly refuses to notice these incidents.
From the above, it appears that sections of the Afghan armed forces and the NATO command (which controls Afghan air space) are hand in glove in these covert operations. No doubt, this is a very serious allegation. The attack on the Hazara Shias must be taken as a message intended for Tehran. Historically and culturally, Iran has affinities with the Hazara Shia community in Afghanistan. Possibly, the Trump administration, which has vowed to overthrow the Iranian regime, is opening a ‘second front’ by the IS against Iran from the east.
Interestingly, the Russian Foreign Ministry also issued a statement on Friday on the alarming drug situation in Afghanistan. It pointed out that:
  • A sharp increase in drug production is expected in Afghanistan this year and one-third of the country’s population is now involved in cultivation of opium poppy.
  • The geography of the Afghan drug trafficking has expanded and now reaches the African continent.
  • Tonnes of chemicals for processing narcotics are illegally imported into Afghanistan – with Italy, France and Netherlands “among main suppliers”.
  • The US and NATO are either unwilling or incapable of curbing the illegal activity.
Russia and Iran cannot turn a blind eye to the hostile activities by the US (and NATO) in their backyard, transforming the anti-Taliban war into a proxy war. They cannot but view the Afghan conflict through the prism of their deepening tensions with the US.
What are Russia’s options? The Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said at a meeting with the top brass in Moscow on August 18 that the Afghan conflict poses a threat to Central Asia’s stability. He said that Russia plans to hold joint military exercises later this year with Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Russia has military bases in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
Again, Ambassador Zamir Kabulov, Russian presidential envoy to Afghanistan, said recently that if the Afghan government and the US are unable to counter the IS threat, Russia will resort to military force. Kabulov disclosed that Russia has raised in the UN Security Council the air dropping of supplies for the IS fighters in at least three provinces in northern Afghanistan by unidentified aircraft.
Of course, it is inconceivable that Russia will put “boots on the ground” in Afghanistan. But if the IS breaches the borders of the Central Asian states, it becomes the “red line”, Russia will hit back. Russia is reinforcing its bases in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Significantly, in a joint military exercise with Tajikistan in July, Russia tested its Iskander-M short-range ballistic missiles, one of the most advanced weapons in the Russian arsenal, with a range of 500 kilometers and a payload of 700 kg. Iskander is equipped with terminal guidance systems with the capability to overcome missile defences. Iskander’s accuracy could be better than 10 meters. (Russia has deployed the deadly weapon to Syria.)
With the exit of White House strategist Steve Bannon, an inveterate anti-war ideologue in the Trump administration who wanted the Afghan war to be brought to an end, the generals now have the upper hand in controlling the US policy. Defence Secretary James Mattis and National Security Advisor HR McMaster favour deployment of additional troops to Afghanistan. The ‘known unknown’ is John Kelly, whom Trump recently appointed as his chief of staff. But there are enough indications that Kelly (a retired Marine Corps general and father of a fallen Marine, 1st Lt. Robert Kelly, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2010) almost certainly shares the opinion of Mattis and McMaster.
The more one looks at it, President Donald Trump’s real challenge is not about winning the war against the Taliban, but the high risk he’ll be incurring, by taking his generals’ advice, to put his imprimatur on a full-fledged proxy war in Afghanistan against Russia, Iran and China.

Israelis Demolish Kindergarten

[ Ed. note – No words. ]
Israeli Civil Administration officials and security forces on Monday demolished a temporary structure built without a permit that was to house a kindergarten in a Jerusalem-area Bedouin village.
The room, built of wood and metal paneling in the Bedouin village of Jabal al-Baba adjacent to al-Azariya, in the West Bank and just east of Jerusalem, was slated to open next month as a schoolroom for 25 four- to six-year-olds.
According to a statement from Israeli rights group B’Tselem, the kindergarten was to be the primary childcare facility for some two dozen Palestinian families from the Bedouin encampment at the site who otherwise have no access to either the Israeli or Palestinian education systems.
A picture of the demolition order circulated by B’Tselem showed the official reason for the demolition was the listing of the structure as “illegal construction,” meaning that it was built without a permit from Israeli authorities.
In a statement, the group said the Defense Ministry’s Civil Administration also confiscated classroom equipment including desks, chairs, cabinets and blackboards worth some NIS 10,000 ($2,765).
A number of traditionally nomadic Bedouin communities are based in the hills east of Jerusalem. Activists have long criticized Israel for neglecting their development needs and seeking to move them from sprawling encampments to urban residential areas. Palestinians fear this is to enable the expansion of settlements in the area, which could further isolate the Arab neighborhoods of East Jerusalem from other Palestinian population centers.
Israel Demolishes Kindergarten in Bedouin Community Near Jerusalem
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces have reportedly demolished a kindergarten in the Bedouin community of Jabal al-Baba in the outskirts of al-Eizariya in the occupied West Bank district of Jerusalem.
Meanwhile, Israeli media reported Monday that the Israeli Civil Administration is threatening to destroy a number of homes in Jabal al-Baba and the nearby Bir al-Maskub area, despite an order by the Israeli Supreme Court forbidding the demolitions until the court determines whether the communities, which have been living there for decades, can be “legalized” in the eyes of the Israeli state.
Bedouin communities such as Jabal al-Baba have been settled in Jerusalem’s outskirts, now within the so-called E1 corridor near the illegal Israeli settlement of Maale Adumim, since they were forcibly displaced from their villages in Beersheba during the creation of the state of Israel in 1948.
According to a report from Jerusalem-based al-Quds News and corroborated by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the kindergarten in Jabal al-Baba was dismantled early Monday morning.
Large numbers of Israeli soldiers and forces from the Israeli Civil Administration raided the community as Israeli bulldozers began to raze the school to the ground.
According to al-Quds, Israeli forces confiscated property from inside the kindergarten before the demolition and ripped apart European Union flags that were posted in the building — an indication that the structure had been built with EU funds.
In response to a request for comment, a spokesperson for COGAT, the larger Israeli entity of which the Civil Administration is part, told Ma’an: “Today an illegal tin and wood shed was caught in Eizaria, that was established over the past two weeks without receiving the required permits. The shed was confiscated by virtue of the procedure to confiscate caravans and in accordance to the law. We would like to emphasize that the construction was not in use.”
In addition to reports from al-Quds and OCHA, Palestinian Authority-owned Wafa news agency also cited witnesses as saying the structure demolished was a kindergarten. Due to being continuously targeted with demolitions and suffering from high poverty rates, most shelter in Bedouin communities are makeshift, informal structures.
Meanwhile, according to Israeli news daily Haaretz, the Israeli Supreme Court issued interim restraining orders against the demolition of a number of homes in Jabal al-Baba and Bir al-Maskub in February.
Despite this, a subcommittee of the Civil Administration threatened to carry out the demolition immediately if the residents didn’t return certain documents to defend their case within one week. The Bedouins then submitted a request last Thursday to declare the Civil Administration in contempt of court.
Israeli forces have demolished dozens of homes in Jabal al-Baba area, many of them built with assistance from the EU and humanitarian organizations, over the past few years. The hill is populated by some 55 Bedouin families (around 300 people) who have inhabited the area for 65 years, and face constant threat of being expelled from their homes.
Some 90 Palestinian Bedouins, the majority of them children, were left homeless when Israeli forces disassembled EU-donated mobile homes in the Jabal al-Baba in May 2016.
Jabal al-Baba, like other Bedouin communities in the region, is under threat of forcible transfer by Israel for being located in the contentious “E1 corridor” set up by the Israeli government to link annexed East Jerusalem with the mega settlement of Maale Adumim.
Israeli authorities plan to build thousands of homes for Jewish-only settlements in E1, which would effectively divide the West Bank and make the creation of a contiguous Palestinian state — as envisaged by the two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict — almost impossible.
Rights groups and Bedouin community members have sharply criticized Israel’s relocation plans for the Bedouin residing near the illegal Israeli settlement of Maale Adumim, claiming that the removal would displace indigenous Palestinians for the sake of expanding Israeli settlements across the occupied West Bank in violation of international law.
Two weeks ago, Israeli authorities seized solar panels that powered an elementary and preschool in the Bedouin community of Abu Nuwwar, located in the E1 area, despite a petition against the seizure having been filed to the Israeli Supreme court, which issued a restraining order against the confiscation an hour after the panels were taken.
An elementary school in the Bedouin community of Khan al-Ahmar, which is also within the so-called E1 corridor, has also long been slated for demolition by Israel.
After a visit by the EU Heads of Missions in Jerusalem and Ramallah to Khan al-Ahmar in March, the EU missions reminded Israel that demolishing the school would not only have a severe negative impact on Palestinian children’s right to education, but would also represent a violation of international humanitarian law.

The Taliban Tried to Surrender and the U.S. Rebuffed Them. Now Here We Are

By Ryan Grim
Did you know that shortly after the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, the Taliban tried to surrender?
For centuries in Afghanistan, when a rival force had come to power, the defeated one would put down their weapons and be integrated into the new power structure — obviously with much less power, or none at all. That’s how you do with neighbors you have to continue to live with. This isn’t a football game, where the teams go to different cities when it’s over. That may be hard for us to remember, because the U.S. hasn’t fought a protracted war on its own soil since the Civil War.
So when the Taliban came to surrender, the U.S. turned them down repeatedly, in a series of arrogant blunders spelled out in Anand Gopal’s investigative treatment of the Afghanistan war, “No Good Men Among the Living.
Only full annihilation was enough for the Bush administration. They wanted more terrorists in body bags. The problem was that the Taliban had stopped fighting, having either fled to Pakistan or melted back into civilian life. Al Qaeda, for its part, was down to a handful of members.
So how do you kill terrorists if there aren’t any?
Simple: Afghans that the U.S. worked with understood the predicament their military sponsors were in, so they fabricated bad guys. Demand has a way of creating supply, and the U.S. was paying for information that led to the death or capture of Taliban fighters. Suddenly there were Taliban everywhere. Score-settling ran amok; all you had to do to get your neighbor killed or sent to Guantánamo was tell the U.S. they were members of the Taliban.Doo
rs would be kicked in, no questions asked. The men left standing became warlords, built massive fortunes, and shipped their wealth abroad. “We are not nation-building again,” President Donald Trump declared Monday night. Well, we never were, unless building high-rises with looted cash in Dubai counts.
After a few years of this charade, after their surrender efforts were repeatedly rebuffed, the old Taliban started picking up guns again. When they were driven from power, the population was happy to see them go. The U.S. managed to make them popular again.
Liberals then spent the 2008 presidential campaign complaining that the U.S. had “ignored” Afghanistan — when, in reality, the parts of the country without troop presence were the only parts at peace, facing no insurgency against the Afghan government, such as it was. Then President Barack Obama came in and launched a surge in troop levels while simultaneously announcing a withdrawal — coupled with a heightened focus on night raids, relying on the same system of unreliable intelligence that had netted so many uninvolved people already.
And now Trump says he has a new and better strategy. He says the U.S. needs to get Pakistan more involved — except, of course, Pakistan’s intelligence service has been propping up the Taliban for decades.
Gopal’s book is the definitive account of how the war went off the rails. It reads like a novel, but is an all-too-real portrait of three Afghans as they lived through the war — a pro-U.S. warlord, a Taliban commander, and a housewife. I’d suggest Trump read it — the book provides a dire warning against the sort of war effort the president is about to double down on — but it’s longer than a page, which his advisers say is the max he’ll digest. And besides, the only thing he seems interested in is the fact that Afghanistan has a bunch of minerals he thinks the U.S. is owed.
Before Trump spends the windfall he hopes to reap from mining Afghanistan, he should consider one starting reality: We are now losing a war to an enemy that already surrendered. That’s not easy to do

“Exclusive to SyrPer” by Canthama


Some perspectives on the recent gas fields liberated in Syria and their impact on the future economy of Syria:

From peak production in 2010, prior to the war of aggression against the Syrians, the natural gas production reached 8.9 million(M) cubic(cu) meters(mts) per day in Syria, and it has been in a free fall since then to 3.8M cu mts per day in 2016, 43% of the all time record (this is basically official production under the Government of Syria).

Just the mega Tuweinaan gas field, recently liberated in central Homs Province, mostly intact, will be able to produce 3.3M cu mts in 6 months time as per initial plan, which could be intensified so as to reach the milestone of 0.6M cu mts per day production in few weeks, then 1.1M cu mts per day in 2 months and full force in 6 months or 3.3M cu mts per day of natural gas, that would almost, alone, double the country’s 2016 production.

Together with Tuweinaan gas field, over two dozens of gas fields were also liberated in the past 2 months, though smaller in size and in production capacity versus Tuweinaan, the Syrian Government believes those liberated gas fields can reach the production level from 2010 in 6 to 12 months. The Palmyra area in central Syria is the site of much of this activity, including the recently liberated Arak gas field, which came on stream at the end of 1995. 

Other important gas fields in the Palmyra area include Al-Hayl (liberated) and Al Doubayaat (still under ISIS, but not for long) — both of which are “sweet gas” and two “sour gas” fields — and Najeeb (mostly liberated this past Sunday) and Sukhna (fully liberated), which came on stream in 2000. Most of these fields will likely enjoy expansions in output post-conflict.

The Syrian Government’s herculean effort, during the 7-year conflict, to pump as much gas from the fields that were kept safe under the control of the State, generated much higher output in those individual gas fields versus prior to 2010 output, which helped to minimize the loss in production with the majority of gas fields under the terrorists’ control. On top of that good performance, the newly liberated gas fields, when in full production, can be expected to produce over 10M cu mts per day sometime by 2018, which would by itself be an all-time record for the country and a much needed resource of power and heating.

It is important to note that it is yet to be seen whether brand new investments to extract natural gas from the shallow waters off the Mediterranean coast of Latakia and Tartous will be forthcoming. There are massive reserves ready for development which will be fairly cheap to extract due to the low depth water and the size of the reserves.  These underwater gas fields are similar to those identified on the Lebanese and Palestinian coasts.

Syria was never a major oil player, but it produced more than its internal needs prior to the war of aggression against it.  Syria produced some 400,000 barrels per day in 2010 (all time record of 600,000/day in 1996), exporting 30% of this volume to overseas customers.

Different from the natural gas production, the conflict severely affected the Syrian oil production (official), reducing it to a fraction of the 2010 level, 3% of it or 14,000 barrels a day. This number does not take into account the oil smuggled to Turkey/Iraq Kurdistan/Israel by ISIS or Al-Qaeda.

By far the major oil extraction is located in the Deir El-Zor Province, reaching 60%+ of the total 2010 production level, with ‘Umar field representing 80,000 barrels/day prior to the conflict, or 20% of national share. The oil found in Deir El-Zor back in the 1980s is the light-grade/low-sulphur oil, usually praised as high quality/value oil.

On the oil refinery side, Syria’s two oil refineries are located at Baniyas and Homs. Total refinery capacity from these refineries in 2004 was estimated at 239,865 bbl/d (132,725 bbl/d and 107,140 bbl/d, respectively). They survived intact the war of aggression against the Syrians, and this is going to be very important for the future of Syria. The two refineries are using imported oil at the moment, mostly from Russia and Iran.

Photo arquive: Homs Refinery

It is clear that the liberation of all of Deir El-Zor’s oil fields will be vital for Syria’s recovery in 2018-2019 and will help bring new revenues from exports and most likely billions of Rubles, Dinars and Yuans in new construction projects and re-develpment of infrastructure.

In the next weeks the SAA and allies will be approaching the critical point when they will have to storm Deir El-Zor City and cross the Euphrates.  This will be a game changer for the economy of Syria and long-awaited endgame for ISIS.

رصاص عين الحلوة ليس «طائشاً»

رصاص عين الحلوة ليس «طائشاً»

روزانا رمّال

أغسطس 24, 2017

كشفت معلومات خاصة لـ«البناء» مساء امس انه بات يوجد ما يؤكد على الرابط المباشر بين معركة الجيش اللبناني في جرود بعلبك كمعركة سمّيت«الفرصة الأخيرة» عند المشتبكين في عين الحلوة وبين التصعيد في المخيم بهذا التوقيت بالذات. وبالتالي فإن الاعتبارات التي تنطلق منها الجماعات الإرهابية صارت أبعد من ان تكون امام اشتباك مشابه لتلك السابقة، لأن الإرهابيينيربطون التفاوض على تهدئة الاوضاع بـ «ترحيلهم» الى سورية او خارج الحدود اللبنانية.وهو المطلب الذي لم يتحقّق بعمليات الجرود في عرسال ما جعل هذه الفرصة هي الأخيرة بالنسبة إليهم من جهة جرود بعلبك وما يعني أن على الأجهزة الأمنية التحسّب لكل أنواع التصعيد، خصوصاً أن الجماعات المفلسة لم تعُد تملك ما تخسره. وتضيف المعلومات «تزامن المعارك في عين الحلوة مع عمليات الجيش اللبناني في جرود بعلبك فيها جزء أمني ينبعث إحباطاً على التنظيم المنتشر في اكثر من منطقة وفي الجوار الاوروبي تشي بأن نهايته باتت قريبة وأنه مهزوم، ما حتّم إزاحة العين بلفت الانظار الى قدرة التنظيمات الإرهابية، خصوصا داعش على تهديد الدولة اللبنانية والإثبات أن لديها القدرة على هز الاستقرار اللبناني، وذلك عبر رصاصات وصلت خارج المخيم استهدفت عناصر أمنية لبنانية لم تكن طائشة، بل كانت رسائل مباشرة للضغط على الحكومة اللبنانية تمهّد لإمكانية تطورها في حال عدم التجاوب معها بتقدير المجموعات المسلحة».

التشويش اذاً على عمليات الجيش اللبناني هو احد ابعاد تحرك الإرهاب في عين الحلوة. وهو تشويش مطلوب إعلامياً نظراً لتأثيره على باقي المجموعات المنتشرة في الجوار، خصوصاً أن معارك العراق الموصل والبادية السورية فعلت فعلها بتكوين التنظيمات وبنيتها.

اشتباكات عين الحلوة هي الحلقة الأضعف التي يمكن للإرهاب أن يتصرّف فيها كورقة «انتقام». هو بالواقع «مكابرة» فيها ما فيها من رغبة التنظيمات تأكيد أن الضغط عليها لا يعنيها وحدها، لأنها قادرة على الضغط أمنياً من أجل تحريك مسألة التفاوض على إخراج بعض الأسماء المعروفة من المخيم بدون محاكمة أي أنها قادرة على هز الأمن اللبناني «الهش» بسهولة، كيف إذا كان الأمر يتعلّق بقطع الطريق الحيوي بين بيروت والجنوب.

عملياً، يبدو تنظيم «داعش» المعني بعمليات عرسال مباشرة لاعباً محترفاً، رغم أنه يلتقط انفاسه الاخيرة. فهو يُحسن توظيف اوراق القوة حتى وهو ضعيف. فالتمهيد الذي سبق هذه الاشتباكات كان قد بدأ العمل عليه منذ تحريك ملف الجماعات «الاسلامية» وقضية بلال بدر «المستحدثة» التي تطورت لتؤسس لملف آخر اليوم بمعزل عن ظروفها هي «بلال العرقوب»، بحيث تمكّنت المجموعات من خضّ أمن أحياء الطيري والصفصاف في المخيم، لكن اللافت والإيجابي هنا هو ان حركتي فتح وحماس متّحدتان في الهدف نفسه، وهو محاربة هذا الخيار في المخيم. فأهم ما في الأمر هو ان المجموعات فشلت بالرهان على الحصول على تغطية حركة حماس ضمن غطاء «الحركة الإسلامية». وهو ما من شأنه تأكيد أن وحدة الفلسطينيين في المخيم قادرة أن تؤدي إلى نتائج أفضل وأسرع تعود بالفائدة على الوضع الأمني داخل المخيم اولاً، وأمن مدينة صيدا ثانياً، والاستقرار في لبنان عامة او ثالثاً.

ضاقت اذرع القوى الإرهابية، لكن خيار التهديد بالتصعيد يصل حد إخراج الاشتباك لضواحي المخيم وتحديداً إلى احياء مدينة صيدا. هو تهديد جدّي، خصوصاً أن انهيار المجموعات المسلحة وانقطاع التواصل مع بعضها البعض في سورية والعراق، كما اعترف الداعشيون الذين وقعوا بأيدي حزب الله قد يأخذ بعض «العقائديين» في التنظيمات الإرهابية الى اللجوء الى الخطط الاخيرة. وهي العمليات الانتحارية او القتال حتى النفس الأخير بدلاً من الاستسلام. وفي هذا الاطار تكمن مخاوف من كون نسبة من الانتحاريين خرجت من عين الحلوة هي جزء يؤكد أن التطرف الديني وغرف التأطير موجودة في تلك البقعة وقادرة على اللجوء لهذه الخيارات في اي لحظة. الأمر الذي ليس ممكناً بحالتي جرود بعلبك وجرود عرسال لأن مخيم عين الحلوة شكل ما يشبه غرفة عمليات الإرهاب والإرهابيين منذ اندلاع الازمة السورية وبدء القتال، رغم أن الإرهاب استغل مخيمات فلسطينية اخرى وتخفّى وراءها وانطلق منها لأعمال تخريبية في لبنان الا ان لعين الحلوة رمزية مغايرة تماماً.

يبقى على الدولة اللبنانية ان تحسن التعاطي مع أمن مخيم عين الحلوة بالشكل الذي يعود بالحرص على أهله من جهة وعلى امن صيدا ومن ورائها لبنان من جهة اخرى، مع الاخذ بعين الاعتبار ضرورة الاسراع في إيجاد حل للمخيم الذي يبدو ان «الهدن» التي تخرج منه عند كل اشتباك لم تعد فعالة على الإطلاق. وفي هذا الاطار مصادر عسكرية رفيعة المستوى أكدت في وقت سابق ان مخيم عين الحلوة سيكون الخطة رقم اثنين التي تلي معاركالحدود اللبنانية وأن القوى المعنية تسعى لإيجاد حل جذري هذه المرة للخطر المستمر.

ISIS – Always-Always Claims Responsibility

August 22, 2017
ISIS – Always-Always Claims Responsibility
Whenever a terrorist attack hits somewhere in Europe or the world, wait a few hours and the police or media report ISIS / ISIL / Daesh claims responsibility. To enhance credibility, they usually say it was confirmed by ISIS news agency Amaq. As soon as this little piece of info is out, the upset populace takes a deep breath and falls at ease. It’s the usual culprits. It’s them, not us. We are fine. We can go back to business as usual.
This in Europe alone has happened more than 40 times since May 2014 – that’s as many ‘Muslim-induced terror attacks’ Western Europe has endured; from Paris to Nice, Brussels, London, Berlin, Munich, Würzburg, Copenhagen, Zvornik (Bosnia & Herzegovina), Moscow, Istanbul, and many more ( ). And almost without fail, the alleged perpetrator(s) were killed, though most of them were not armed and could have been apprehended by police, questioned and brought to justice. Dead men don’t talk. That’s more convenient.
The latest Barcelona terror Amuck-run on the Rambla is not different. It is a case in point and a typical case for confusion. There were several chief-perpetrators suspected and killed. Many names circulated – and, of course, a passport, leading to a Spanish enclave in Morocco was found. The owner of the passport, immediately reported it to the police as stolen, with a solid alibi. But then, suitably his 17-year-old brother stole the passport and left it in the white van, when he fled on foot, injured from an explosion the night before, in a residency some 230 km south of Barcelona – or was that really him? – and several hours after the Rambla assault, he was caught by police in Cambrils, 120 km south of Barcelona in another attempted pedestrian run – and killed among one of five terrorists who happened to be squeezed into the same Audi. Ever wondered, why so many terrorists in one car? – Or was he really one of those killed?
By now, the people are really-really confused. Nobody knows up from down in this chaos. Better leave it to the authorities. They know best to handle the situation. Let us go back to normal – until the next terror attack hits – Allahu Akbar – very likely next in a theatre near you, somewhere in this old, purposefully and increasingly militarized police state, called Europe.
What happened to the real and innocent owner of the passport? – Does anybody know? Or can we ask ten ‘official’ sources and get ten different answers?
How come special police throughout Europe apply the same philosophy – kill to shut them up? Isn’t there a police ethics code – shoot only in self-defense? Most cases were no self-defense, as the ‘terrorists’ were visibly not armed. Have European secret and special police forces been receiving collective, well-focused training: no Muslim-Terrorist Survivors!
Why not? – That would also explain why never anybody questions the ISIS claim to murder and mayhem. Why would ISIS / ISIL / Daesh want to hurt those who fund them, train them, arm them feed them? – It’s not even secret any more. Hillary said so already years ago, We created them, now we have to deal with them. Former CIA officials admitted that they recruited, funded, trained and armed them – later the ISIL / Daesh reign was expanded with additional financial backing by the Saudis, other Gulf States and Turkey – and, of course, all the holy western allies. – So, why would ISIS want to hurt the cow whose milk they drink? Strange – isn’t it? (
Maybe what meets the eye is not reality. Could it be that ISIS / ISIL / Daesh, out of sheer gratitude to its benevolent sponsors have agreed to take the blame whenever a western orchestrated terror attack strikes somewhere in Europe or the world? Can’t be excluded, can it? It’s not even blackmail. After all, lending a helping hand to the Big Brothers, NATO, France, Germany, UK, US of A and many more lesser contributors, but contributors all the same – who keep you alive, would not be out of the world. – Right? – This is all done in connivance with massive support of European secret services, led by the usual villains, CIA, MI6, Mossad.
Is it therefore far-fetched to conclude that European governments are utterly complicit in instigating and executing these ‘false flag’ terror attacks, sacrificing the lives of hundreds of their citizens, just so they can pursue their goal of totally militarizing the Continent? – That they are as faithful vassals following the pattern of their trans-Atlantic partners – aiming at Full Spectrum Dominance – World Hegemony, a New World Order under a One World Order governed by Washington and its Deep Dark handlers? – Barcelona, Paris, Berlin are mere little pebbles in the Big Picture mosaic of world dominion. And the people, the mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, children who are killed – they are just menial collateral damage. After all, slaves – what is their value?
