‘Deputy Chief of Dubai’s Police Force Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan said Israel’s spy agency, Mossad, has most likely been behind the downing of the Russian passenger plane that crashed in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula in October.
“There is a strong possibility that Israel’s intelligence has been involved in the terrorist bombing which brought down the Russian Airbus A321 in Egypt in October,” Khalfan wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday.
He pointed to the close cooperation between Egypt and Russia, and said Israel cannot undermine the ties between Moscow and Cairo through such actions. “The Russian and Egyptian presidents have agreed on the construction of a nuclear power plant by Russia in Egypt.”‘
‘Hosein Mortada has provided details about one of the individuals who carried out the Paris attack on Saturday November 13th with the rest of his crew of jihadists. His name is Abo Talha Al Jazaeri (Aljazaeri means ‘Algerian’).
Abo Talha, a French national, has been trained in the Occupied Golan Heights, along with his crew who carried out Paris attack operation.
All of the terrorists involved with the Paris attacks were European nationals, previously fighting in Syria alongside Al Nusra Front and then moved to Al Raqqa to join the so-called ISIS, Islamic State in Syria and the Levant.
Finally they moved to Quneitra, Daraa, and their last station was in the Zionist entity, Israel, at a site called Bait Zorah where they have been trained by Israeli Mossad.’

After the latest tragedy in Paris, the outpouring of heartfelt sympathy from ordinary human beings and cynical posturing from political leadership, it is time for people to stop, think and take democratic action before it gets much worse. And in the short run it will get worse.
The Islamic State is a reaction to what the west has been doing to the arab-Muslim world for longer than any of us have been around, even longer than “decades” in time-meaningless media speech.
After the First World War destroyed the Ottoman Empire and Europe began creating national boundaries in the arab-Muslim world having more to do with western real estate economics than native populations wishes, the seeds were planted for the present destruction of those Middle Eastern nations and the reaction to it by Islamic fundamentalism. But western intrusion began long before then, which is why some Islamic Jihadist writings of the present refer to their enemies as “crusader-Zionists”, linking political economic cultures of supposedly different eras and religious beliefs but really as different as the two sides of a coin to the people they have dominated for far too long.
To hear the master race of self-chosen people who have ruled the world from the time of past crusades to present Israel, theirs was and is a project to civilize and democratize those with no idea how to conduct themselves as an advanced population of organized freedom loving people. Of course it may have to murder hundreds of thousands, even millions, in the process of civilizing these unfortunates, especially if they not only fail to obey their dominators but even insist on making rules for themselves, but mass murders and the destruction of secular governments are simply part of the process of building democracy and respect for life. Got that?
It should be common knowledge by now that the origins of Islamic fundamentalist warrior groups had to do with financing and training by the USA, its Arab fascist allies and its NATO lap dogs. The jihadists were originally employed to fight against the Soviets in Afghanistan, after they had come to the aid of a secular regime the west worked to destroy because it was seen as too friendly to the Russians, who were their next-door neighbors. If you believe you are a master race of self-chosen people, brainpower takes a back seat to killing power. When that bloody war ended with the soviets out and the fundamentalists in power, the westerners watched in blissful ignorance as a former secularly ruled nation became overtly religiously orthodox and where, among other radical changes, women once of the professional educated class were returned to servitude and obedience to men, covering themselves in public in dress codes that could seem puritanical to westerners but were at least partly enforced to keep them from looking like cheap tramps, which was how islamic fundamentalists saw many western women.
What bungling supremacist policy makers also failed to notice was that the jihadists didn’t just hate communists; they hated the entire materialist west, wanted to rid themselves of all its social contamination, and go their own way. Oops.
After 911, the terror attack that provoked the mindless assault on the people and nations of the Middle East that continues today, the first stage of the bigger bloodbath started in Afghanistan. Easily blamed, after the fact, on a president treated as a dunce by cowards – only Barbara Lee, of more than 500 “democratically elected representatives” in congress spoke against the action – it has continued to Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria and of course has seen retaliation in the USA, Europe and other points west.
The Islamic State, treated by western consciousness control as a bunch of bloody killers bent on replacing the commercial televised mayhem of wrestling, kick boxing and Fox News with actual beheadings, is, whether slandered and cheapened by being called self proclaimed or so-called, a state of Islamic people with territory, currency and trade policies, which wishes to have no connection to or relationship with the forces which have colonized, tormented and brutalized its people for so long. That their tactics are brutal and dedicated to frightening the west and creating chaotic tendencies is clear, and that they are and have been successful is equally clear. What is to be done?
Obviously, not having well meaning if silly debates over whether or not to take in helpless refugees who are fleeing bloodshed we play a major role in creating and sustaining. The biggest help we can extend Syrians escaping war is to stop making the war. The same is true for all the other nations and people we have dominated in the area and in whose affairs we have meddled by supporting oppressive dictatorial regimes which do our bidding and thus become acceptable butchers. We are presently informed – repeatedly, and by sources from the extreme right to what passes for a left in the USA – that the horrendous Assad is brutal and must be replaced and that is why we have helped if not created various groups in Syria to take up armed struggle against his government. Of course they now amount to nothing and foreign jihadists, from all over the arab world as well as europe, are the fighters threatening the Syrian regime, as once again the formidably armed but mentally crippled leadership of western nations sounds a collective “huh?” while it continues to destroy people and nations because, um, that’s what it does.
Thanks to the Russians awakening to potential disaster in their neighborhood and taking both military and diplomatic action to bring about peace talks to attempt solving the future leadership problem in Syria, there are signs of hope. Even Obama, who only looks peaceful by comparison to Killer Clinton and the idiot republicans, seems to see that America will lose, badly, if the warfare continues. But that is not nearly close enough to what really must be done.
The USA must get out of the empire business, end its warfare economic entrapment and stop slaughtering people to allow the minority corporate rich and their cowardly minority politicians to use other people’s lives and money to feel like macho women and men who rule the world. If we don’t take democratic action to stop them, we will pay a heavier price in future than we have paid in the past. And it won’t just be financial.
We need to get out of all the places in the middle east – and the rest of the world – where the people don’t want us, stop performing as Israel’s servant and insist they stop butchering Palestine by cutting off all financial and especially military aid until they do so, and only attempt to help others when they have truly democratic rule – so far evading us! – and ask for our help, and then only after we have seen to it that all our people have homes, health care and jobs. In our very near future, we’ll either have real democracy or unbelievable barbarism. What’s your choice?

“Ladies and gentlemen, not all lives are precious. Some are more worthy than others.
Has been wrong on everything they’ve predicted

“A movie displayed by an Arab news website showed that a long convoy of the ISIL terrorists’ military vehicles was going on a Highway towards battlefronts with the aerial back up of a US military Apache helicopter.
The UAE-based al-Sa’a displayed a video clip of over 200 Toyota vans carrying the flag and members of the ISIL terrorist group driving on one of the main highways of Syria while an Apache chopper of US military was accompanying them in a friendly manner.”
The U.S. Military personnel on board the Apache, will rue this day
before this month is out…
“The Arab media reported that the ISIL convoy did not open fire at the US chopper, which was flying in a very low altitude.
Early in October, former CIA counter terrorism officer and Senate Foreign Relations Committee senior investigator John Kiriakou said the US congress armed the ISIL terrorists by providing weapons to the “moderate” opposition.
The FSA is an armed Syrian opposition faction, considered “moderate” by the western countries, fighting the Syrian army loyal to President Bashar Assad since the beginning of the war in 2011. In 2014, the US Congress allocated $500 million to create FSA force of more than 5,000 men by the end of 2015…”
The people of the world can no longer “blindly trust” anything that any ‘government’ continues to say about anything that “happens” in or near any war-zone, because of the spread of the global-infection of Political-Correctness that has just swept up Europe in its international claws.
Busted: Totally Proven Beyond All Doubt: The French Government
The global scene is working it’s way up to bombing Syria, without Syria’s permission, and in-spite of the facts on the ground which the Russian Air Offensive has only halfway completed: Which is what sparked the supposed “Terror Attack” in Paris: As the West’s justification for continuing their war on Assad, while continuing to support the terrorists we have paid for and created every step of the way.
Once the farce gets going once again, to justify US bombing raids, despite the fact that they’ve been a total failure for the entire year before the Russian’s arrived in Syria; The new state of Terror in France and elsewhere will continue to drag Europe and the rest of humanity ever-deeper into that hopeless hole that “The Empire” will try to sell the global public on, again, just like they did to America on 911.
The only thing that will change, because of this false-flag operation in Paris, will be the massive loss of freedom in France and throughout Europe especially now as the full force of the invading hordes have already gotten inside the gates of Europe, that now sees the point behind the ‘migration’ and is trying to keep them out, but for too many ‘nations’ it’s already too late. So what have we learned?
“All Victims of Terror are Not Equal”
And only the truth will be able to push back
This global attack on civilization.
Smoke & Mirrors
All of the terror on display of late was created to obtain a NATO license to make war on Syria, in the same way NATO, the UN, US, Britain, France, Germany, and others obliterated Libya, but because of Russia, and the fact that the shitheads from Amerika and Israel just got caught trying to stage this false-flag to the nines… So maybe, just maybe, the world might finally reject this latest false-flag event before the illegal bombing of NATO can get off the ground…
‘Reporting from Beirut, New York Times’ Anne Barnard has a piece titled, “Beirut, Also the Site of Deadly Attacks, Feels Forgotten” out today. In the article she details the double sucide-attack that took place in Lebanon on Thursday and killed 43 people. She contrasts the outpouring of support that Paris has received over the past two days with the lack of solidarity being shown for Beirut.
The perception of being ignored has seemingly taken hold in Lebanon. She quotes the blog of Elie Fares, a Lebanese doctor, who wrote, “When my people died, no country bothered to light up its landmarks in the colors of their flag. When my people died, they did not send the world into mourning. Their death was but an irrelevant fleck along the international news cycle, something that happens in THOSE parts of the world.”’
Without the direct, extensive and deliberate creation by the United States and its Saudi ally of a world-wide movement of armed Sunni extremists during the Carter and Reagan administrations, there would have been no “War on Terror” — and no terrorist attacks in Paris tonight.
We, the West, overthrew Saddam by violence. We overthrew Gaddafi by violence. We are trying to overthrow Assad by violence. Harsh regimes all — but far less draconian than our Saudi allies, and other tyrannies around the world. What has been the result of these interventions? A hell on earth, one that grows wider and more virulent year after year.
Now that IS Sinai has apparently devised an “innovative” way of getting bombs onto passenger jets (like recruiting someone inside to place a device) and now that ISIS proper has demonstrated its willingness to wreak havoc on unsuspecting civilians in Western population centers, the American public was probably plenty nervous about the prospect of imminent terrorist attacks on US soil.
But just in case they weren’t, the FBI is out reporting that on Saturday evening, someone – or several someones – somehow managed to break into an Army Reserve weapons depot in central Massachusetts.
Of course you don’t break into an army weapons depot and not take anything, and indeed, authorities say “some weapons” are missing although they declined to say what kind. If you’re in law enforcement, you can apparently find out by searching NCIC or, you can just head over to CBS Boston’s website, where they’ll tell you that the haul amounted to “six semi-automatic rifles and 10 pistols.”
The break-in occurred at the Lincoln Army Reserve Center in Worcester where, according to ABC affiliate WCBV 5, “thieves snuck in through the roof and stole weapons from a building that’s full of locked doors.” We’re not sure what’s more amusing about that statement: the fact that they “snuck in through the roof” or the fact that WCBV had to say that the doors are generally kept locked.
Here are some images of the “highly secure” facility:
Intuitively, one would think that if there were some kind of elaborate terrorist plot against the homeland, the terrorists would have come up with other ways to procure weapons than pulling a Mission Impossible on the roof of an Army Reserve weapons depot, but that didn’t stop the FBI from mentioning “terrorism” in their statement – albeit only to “dismiss” the idea.
‘Today it’s all over the news that supposedly the ISIS chief executioner Jihadi John was killed by a “flawless” U.S. air strike targeting him.
Yes, “flawless” is the word that was widely publicized. In fact, ABC News is reporting ISIS’s star Mossad agent er, decapitator “evaporated” (yes, evaporated) when an air strike targeted his vehicle according to an unnamed U.S. official (always unnamed, but he’s “official,” so we should definitely believe every word he says).
Good thing there’s no body to actually prove anything, huh? You know, what with him being all evaporated and such. What a great time to trot out randomly find and kill off a heavily publicized boogeyman flawlessly, not unlike that one time Obama claimed he killed Osama bin Laden after holding off the raid at least two other times like it didn’t even matter when America finally took out the man it claims was responsible for 9/11 (probably because Osama died years ago)’
We are all France. Apparently. Though we are never all Lebanon or Syria or Iraq for some reason. Or a long, long list of additional places.
We are led to believe that U.S. wars are not tolerated and cheered because of the color or culture of the people being bombed and occupied. But let a relatively tiny number of people be murdered in a white, Christian, Western-European land, with a pro-war government, and suddenly sympathy is the order of the day.
“This is not just an attack on the French people, it is an attack on human decency and all things that we hold dear,” says U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham. I’m not sure I hold ALL the same things dear as the senator, but for the most part I think he’s exactly right and that sympathy damn well ought to be the order of the day following a horrific mass killing in France.
I just think the same should apply to everywhere else on earth as well. The majority of deaths in all recent wars are civilian. The majority of civilians are not hard to sympathize with once superficial barriers are overcome. Yet, the U.S. media never seems to declare deaths in Yemen or Pakistan or Palestine to be attacks on our common humanity.
| 12 Nov 2015 | Israeli security service operatives infiltrated a hospital in the Palestinian West Bank on Thursday, killing a bystander while attempting to detain a suspect who allegedly carried out a stabbing, local sources say. Jehad Shawar, director of Al Ahly Hospital in the West Bank city of Hebron, told Palestinian radio around 30 men arrived at the scene in two vans and entered the hospital building with a person pretending to be pregnant, Reuters reports. The Israeli forces infiltrated the hospital to arrest a Palestinian named Abdallah Azzam al-Shalalda, 27, who allegedly stabbed an Israeli settler near Hebron two weeks ago.
Following Stéphane Dion’s first meeting of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s new government, Canada’s new foreign minister announced that significant changes would be made in Canada’s approach to the Middle East.
Foreign Minister Dion assumed office on Wednesday. He’s wasted no time, though, in making it clear that diplomacy under his watch would take a new direction.
Dion stressed that Canada will change its approach and will be an “honest broker” in the Middle East as it focuses on improving its relations with all “legitimate partners.”
“Israel is a friend, it is an ally but for us to be an effective ally we need also to strengthen our relationship with the other legitimate partners in the region,” Dion said.
