WARNING: Video leaked from inside the detention of Misratah where Humanity does not exist.

PLEASE MAKE IT VIRAL WE NEED YOUR HELP TO STOP THE TORTURES AND DEATHS OF POW’s

When I was sent this video, I did not know how to react, I have seen so many videos where humanity does not exist. I am wondering with these people how much they enjoy to torture prisoners who cannot defend themselves and endure the torture. What does it say for the torturer’s? They are not brave they are cowards, hiding behind a mask. 

Now back to the Video its vulgar but what do you expect from a tribe which is a mix breed of Turks-mongols and Jews, Misuratah people for a long time they where jews who converted to Islam by the Ottoman Empire so this breed now is trying to control Libya whatever the cost to humanity. They have been trained well by the CIA/MOSSAD/MI6 agents on how to torture they have been trained by the best PSYCHOPATHS. America/Israel with its compatriots the Misurati are trying its damnedest to INSTALL ISIL/MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IN LIBYA, just to prove my point yesterday a Turkish ship docked at the port of Misuratah on board was over 1000 mercenaries, guns and ammunition, helicopters and lets not forget money to pay all these mercenaries who do the fighting for America/Israel.

No one not even the governments or the secret agencies have the right to treat so inhumane prisoners what ever their crime. I am sick to my stomach with stories that I have been told about the tortures some detainees that succeeded to escape from their captures, I could not believe my ears what they went through and what it has done to them not only on their bodies but also to their souls. Many times I have lost my faith to God for allowing the destruction of countries, killing innocent children, women and old men. Allowing hunger to half of the world but then I come to my senses and say this is not the work of God but of 10 families who believe they are GOD and we are just worms on the ground causing them a problem to their lifestyle. These families who reproduce like rabbits need more space on earth so that they can live in it and they must extinguish the worms because we steal their oxygen, food and resources. I apologise for my rumbling but enough is enough, PEOPLE must WAKE UP from this lethargic sleep, WE THE PEOPLE HAVE TO PUT ASIDE OUR DIFFERENCES AND JOIN FORCES to get rid of these cowards who hide behind the scenes, or they cover their faces for fear of recognition. WE HAVE THE POWER BUT HAVE NOT REALISED THAT WE HAVE, WE ARE STRONGER THAN THE 10 FAMILIES, IF WE JOIN ALL TOGETHER WE CAN GET RID OF THEM ONCE AND FOR ALL.

The Muslim Brotherhood Subsidiary


The Muslim Brotherhood Subsidiary

The irrational deep-seated hatred which the Anglo-American foreign policy establishment holds towards Iran is rooted in the 1979 Iranian Revolution, which overthrew the Four Horsemen stooge Shah and nationalized Iran’s oil and banking industries.

(Excerpted from Chapter 10: The Iran/Iraq War:Big Oil & Their Bankers…)

The Eight Families banking cabal much preferred the mullahs to the leftists. By 1982 CIA and MI6 were passing targeting information to the Ayatollah aimed at Iranian leftist groups like the Tudeh Party, the National Front and the People’sMujahadeen.  The mullahs unleashed a reign of terror, assassinating over 4,000 Tudeh Party leaders, while torturing and imprisoning over 10,000 Tudeh members and supporters.  In 1989 many of those imprisoned were sentenced to death. [412]

Khomeini banned Tudeh, terming them “Marxist satanic elements” – something even the Shah hadn’t done. The Tudeh Party spearheaded the Iranian Revolution through their Committee of 60 oilfield strikes in Khuzistan.  The party earlier ushered in Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh, whose attempts to wrest better terms from the Four Horsemen-controlled Iranian Consortium made him the target of a successful BP-financed coup in 1953.

The US was now once again helping Islamic extremists, this time to exterminate the Iranian left.  One US official assured reporters that the executions “would not hinder the warming of US/Iran relations”. [413]  Big Oil was dealing with the Ayatollah as well, secretly shipping Iranian crude to Saudi Arabia for refining.

The Israeli Mossad was walking the same high-wire in their country, where in 1978 it allowed the fundamentalist Hamas to become the only Palestinian group registered in Israel.  Within a decade Hamas leader Sheik Ahmed Yassin had built a powerful organization that ruled the Gaza Strip under Israeli watch. [414]

The Israelis found Hamas a convenient bludgeon which they could deploy against Yasser Arafat whose Palestinian Authority had emerged from Fatah and the PLO, both of which put forth a secular left of center political agenda based on Arab unity and nationalism.

Hamas has a much different agenda.  They are Islamists whose goal is to set up an Islamic state with funding from the undemocratic right-wing GCC sheikdoms, especially the House of Saud.  Hamas regularly receives funds from the Saudis without intervention by the Israelis, while MONEY bound for the PLO is routinely seized by Israeli authorities.  Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon played a critical role in the founding of Hamas in 1988, when his Likud Party doled out 800 licenses to Islamists in the occupied Palestinian territories of Gaza and the West Bank.  The right-wing Israeli Likud uses Hamas to sew division among the Palestinians.

The Saudis favor Hamas since their interests are firmly aligned with those of the international bankers and the Four Horsemen.  The Saudis prefer fundamentalist groups that talk of “infidels” and “the decadence of Western culture”, to those more radical nationalist groups who rail against the injustice of neo-liberal globalization, a system from which the House of Saud derives its vast wealth.  After the Gulf War the House of Saud cut funding to the PLO to punish Arafat for his opposition to the US bombing of Iraq, while the Saudis continued to fund Hamas. [415]  Many House of Saud members are members of the secret society Muslim Brotherhood-Benoist-Mechin.

Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, which traces its roots back to the Grand Lodge of Cairo and the Assassins secret society which fought alongside Knights Templar invaders in their attacks against Muslim Saracen nationalists during the Crusades.  Hamas, wittingly or not, serves that same “divide and conquer” role today in Sharon’s attacks on the nationalist Arafat.  Hamas suicide bombers are modern-day Assassins, whose actions serve as a pretext for further Israeli aggression against Palestinians.

It was no coincidence that each time Sharon flew to Washington in 2002 to discuss the increasingly explosive Israeli/Palestinian conflict with President Bush, Hamas activated its suicide bombers.  The bombings enabled Sharon to escape US scrutiny. Each time the Butcher of Shatila was soon on his way back to Tel Aviv to grab more Palestinian land.  In 2005 Hamas won the elections in Palestine, giving the Israelis another excuse to harden their stance.

Sharon served as ideological guru of both the Gush Emunim and Kach Movement/JDL Jewish underground right-wing terror networks during his 1977-1992 tenure in Israeli Likud governments.  Sharon was also part of the Landscam gang which made millions recruiting Jews from Manhattan to Moscow as buyers of homes built on illegal settlements on Palestinian lands during the 1980’s and 1990’s.

His Landscam partners included Rupert Murdoch, Sir David Ormsby-Gore, Prince Johannes von Thurn and Taxis, Sir Edmund Peck and World Jewish Congress President Edgar Bronfman. [416]

Also attending the initial 1982 planning sessions for this land grab at Sharon’s Negev ranch were Henry Kissinger, MI6 MidEast specialist Nicholas Elliot and Permindex crony Louis Mortimer Bloomfield.  The meeting came on the heels of Sharon’s June 4, 1982 invasion of Lebanon.

From 1984-1990 Sharon served as Minister of Construction & Housing for Likud, where he greatly expanded illegal Israeli settlement activity. [417]

According to former Mossad case officer Victor Ostravsky, Mossad armed the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood with mujahadeen arms from Afghanistan in 1986.  Mossad even told these Islamic Jihad terrorists which targets to hit.  That same year they planned to arm Islamists in Jordan to destabilize that nation as part of their “Jordan is Palestine” plan to push all Palestinians into Jordan, while seizing the West Bank and Gaza Strip. [418]

In October 1991, angered at the Bush Sr. Administration’s willingness to mediate peace talks in Madrid between Israel and the Palestinians, Ostravsky says Mossad used three Hamas extremists in an attempt to assassinate Bush in Madrid.  When their plan failed, these Palestinians, like many before them, were shipped off to Nes Ziyyona, an Israeli nuclear, biological and chemical weapons testing facility where experiments are routinely conducted on Palestinian militants.  A similar Mossad facility exists, disguised as a hospital, in Soweto, South Africa, where poor blacks are subject to experimentation. [419]

The global elite use Islamic extremists to achieve its geopolitical goals on a regular basis.  In 1982 the socialist government in Syria put down a revolt led by Islamic militants.  One of the revolt’s leaders was Abdallah Azzam, who later supervised the CIA training of mujahadeen in Peshawar.

Shiek Hassan Turabi, leader of the Sudanese military government, is backed by the leader of that country’s Muslim Brotherhood offshoot known as the Islamic National Front.  Until the media began reporting that Osama bin Laden was using Sudan as his mid-1990’s al Qaeda base, the US had close ties to the Sudanese fanatics.  Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the cleric who CIA brought to the US to recruit Islamic fighters got his visa at the US consulate in Khartoum. [420]

In the US the Muslim Brotherhood coalesces around Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam.  On February 21, 1965 Nation of Islam operatives gunned down black leader Malcolm X, who had fallen out with the Islamists after a journey to Mecca altered his worldview.  Prior to the trip, Malcolm X spoke in the divisive manner of Farrakhan, preaching black power against the “white devils”.  In his autobiography, he writes of his transformation at Mecca.  Upon his return he ditched his racial analysis and focused on class, reaching out, as Dr. Martin Luther King had begun to do when he was assassinated, to labor unions and impoverished whites.  He even talked of a coalition with King.

Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad was a self-proclaimed messenger of Nation of Islam founder Master Fard.  Fard instructed Muhammad to study the origins of Islam, Freemasonry and the Kabala.  According to Fard, the black race emerged from the powerful Tribe of Shabazz, whose members possessed the all-seeing eye via their operative pineal glands.  In a story strikingly similar to that of the Annunaki Sumerian invaders, Fard said a “big-head scientist named Yakub” appeared around 6,000 years ago and began experiments to genetically engineer a wicked race who would be “masters of deceit”.  Fard claims the white races produced by Yakub, whom he claims is the Biblical Jacob, were represented in ancient Egyptology as the tribe of Seth, who was known by the Greeks as Satan.  Fard says that mankind’s pineal gland was damaged through these experiments and that these “white devils” usurped the many achievements of black culture, terming their new slaves Negroes, after the word necro, which means “dead”. [421]

Fard also states – as do the Knights Templar – that Jesus Christ never died on the cross.  Fard said Christ was only in an herb-induced stupor when he was laid in the tomb by Roman soldiers and that he later married, had children and died in Kashmir, Pakistan. [422]

This helps explain why, while the Priory of Sion bloodline Kings are the Merovingans of France (where the Templars claim Christ later lived), the spiritual God/King of the Muslim Brotherhood is Aga Khan, who resided in the Kashimir region of Pakistan.  It may also explain why ill-fated modern-day Assassin Osama bin Laden hid out in Pakistan.

The sniper that claimed thirteen victims in the Washington, DC area in October 2002, John Mohamed, was a recent convert to the Nation of Islam.  Its donors have included Texas billionaire H. L. Hunt, who met with Jack Ruby the day before the JFK hit, then disappeared to Mexico for a month.

Louis Farrakhan came up missing in similar fashion after the Malcolm X hit.  The assassins of Malcolm X were likely paid by CIA, which was concerned with his pan-Africanism and his UN petition declaring the US to be a racist imperial power.

Islamic fundamentalism began its modern day meteoric rise in British administered India and found a permanent home in Pakistan. That country came into being in 1947 in a British attempt to divide Muslims from their Hindu Indian counterparts.  Pakistani Islamism was carried forth by Mawdudi and a succession of military juntas backed by the US. [423]

The Saudi Muslim Brotherhood government embraces Wahhabist fundamentalism and finances its export to places like Egypt – where it once printed and distributed a manual advocating “Islamic political economy”.

The US-allied Gulf Cooperation Council embraces Islamic fundamentalism, which is quite congruent with global monopoly capitalism and feudalistic monarchy.

Meanwhile US enemies in the region embrace secular socialism, which aims to stop the exploitation of oil resources by the Four Horsemen and their Eight Families-owners.

Great regional leaders including the Egyptian Nasser, the Iranian Mossadegh, the Algerian Boumedienne, the Libyan Qaddafi and the Iraqi al-Bakr all advocated secular socialism (though Qaddafi proclaimed himself precisely to be an anarcho-syndicalist), which poses a very real threat to the Illuminati elite.

Spies, Lies & Whistleblowers: MI5, MI6 and the Shayler Affair by Annie Machon


Spies, Lies & Whistleblowers: MI5, MI6 and the Shayler Affair by Annie Machon

I desperately wanted to change MI5 so that it performed a useful job well and lawfully, but I did not then feel that I would have been able to do that either from outside the organisation or from a lower level job. In every potential situation, I therefore came up against a dead end. To complain would mark you out as a troublemaker. To leave took you outside any potential ability to alter things. — David Shayler

But I soon realised that people regarded you with suspicion if you asked too many questions, so I learned to keep quiet … I knew that open protest was not likely to to be successful. If one got a reputation as a revolutionary, one would be regarded as suspect and written off. — Dame Stella Rimington, former Director General MI5

I know all too well that I’m taking on the Establishment, but I am no traitor. All I am guilty off is exposing wrongdoing at the highest level. As a result of that my life has been changed irrevocably. This is not the prosecution of someone who has given away State secrets, but of someone who has embarrassed the Government. — David Shayler

You are working for an intelligence agency and you find it to be rotten to the core. What do you do: do you keep your head down and pretend not to notice what is going on all around you, do you raise your concerns with your superiors, or do you go public with what you know?

This was the dilemma facing David Shayler, an intelligence officer in MI5, the British internal intelligence agency. David Shayler took the riskiest option of the three and went public with what he knew, in doing so putting his life and freedom at risk.

MI5 and the government went on the offensive, doing their best to discredit David Shayler and the sordid tale he had to tell. Facing arrest and possible imprisonment, David Shayler fled to France.

In the meantime, Annie Machon, David’s girlfriend and herself an MI5 officer, appalled at the treatment of David, went public too to say that what he was telling was the truth.

And if that was not enough, Richard Tomlinson, an MI6 officer, spoke out at the abuses and lack of accountability at MI6.

David Shayler voluntarily returned from France to face trial. He was one of the first to try to make use of the Human Rights Act, which should guarantee the right to a fair hearing.

Unfortunately it was anything but. What David Shayler faced was a political show trial. He was even gagged and not allowed to speak in his own defence.

Writing several years after they first went public, Annie Machon documents in Spies, Lies & Whistleblowers: MI5, MI6 and the Shayler Affair what all the furore was about.

David and Annie witnessed at first hand:

  • how MI5 failed to foil at least four major IRA terrorist attacks

  • that MI5 compiled dossiers on British citizens for holding dissident political views

  • a blind eye turned to a known Libyan terrorist organising terror networks in the UK

  • illegal persecution of an innocent journalist

  • MI6 funding of an Al-Qaeda coup in Libya to topple and assassinate Colonel Gaddafi

In Spycatcher Peter Wright wrote of how MI5 ‘bugged and burgled its way across London’. Writing a generation later, Annie Machon shows that not a lot has changed: drunken officers who lose sensitive files, turf wars between the various agencies, turf wars between different sections within MI5, bureaucratic bungling, cavalier attitude to human rights, blatant lying to Ministers and an oversight committee, dirty tricks and smear campaigns against perceived enemies, enemies of the intelligence agencies that is, not enemies of the state, etc etc.

There were so many cock-ups in dealing with the Provisional IRA that it is a wonder they were ever defeated. This bodes ill for defeating Islamic terrorism. Irish terrorists were at least ‘decent’ terrorists. They shared the same values as us, they gave a warning when they planted a bomb, they were not intent on killing people, whereas, hate-filled Muslim terrorists are intent on slaughtering the maximum number of innocent civilians.

Prior to working on counter-terrorism, Annie and David were working on counter-subversion, monitoring and infiltrating fringe groups like SWP, Communist Party of Great Britain, and the anarchist group Class War. It is easy therefore to see why the pair were made less than welcome when they attended a fringe meeting at the Anarchist Bookfair 2005. But, they did not have to attend, and it in no way justifies the smear campaign that has been running against them. Annie describes some of the dirty tricks that were run, and the question has to be asked: are the smear campaigns that are being run by allegedly dissident groups, less the lunatic fringe and more dirty tricks by front organisations, or dissident groups that have been infiltrated and hijacked, as was Class War? [Anarchist Bookfair 2005]

Highlighting the abuses of human rights, that monitoring political dissent, is not what the intelligence services should be doing, was not guaranteed to enhance one’s career prospects.

David Shayler was prosecuted because he caused embarrassment, and to serve as an example to others who may be tempted to speak out. Is this what caused Dr David Kelly to take his own life (assuming he did and was not killed to silence him), an honourable man who spoke out against the lies on the illegal war with Iraq?

There is a confusion between ‘damage to national security’ and ‘harm to the national interest’. The former is easy to interpret, the latter is open to abuse, and too often is interpreted as embarrassment to those in power, and believe it or not not, there is a security classification of ‘causing embarrassment to HMG’.

We saw this in the Shayler Affair, and are seeing it again with the infamous memo where George W Bush allegedly wished to bomb the Qatar offices of Aljazeera. That part is believable, less believable is that Tony Blair acted to dissuade Bush.

We have here parallels with the Shayler Affair where a a Civil Servant and a Parliamentary Researcher are to be prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act as their actions are deemed ‘prejudicial to the national interest’. But whose interest is that, as surely is it not in our interest, as a democratic society, to be told that the supposed leader of the free world, was contemplating bombing a TV channel in a friendly country, but was dissuaded by his comrade-in-arms in war crimes, the odious Blair?

The suppression of free speech ‘in the national interest’ is reminiscent of acts carried out ‘in the good of the people’ so favoured by totalitarian regimes, so no surprise it finds favour with Tony Blair.

The mainstream media as usual are a disgrace. They reported as ‘facts’ the anonymous unattributable briefings on the Shayler Affair, but rarely checked with the principle actors the truth of what they were being told.

We have learnt recently that the Muslim terrorists involved in the Tube bombings in London on 7 July 2005, were known to the intelligence services, had travelled to terrorist training camps in Pakistan, had met known or suspected terrorists in the UK, were mixing with extremist Muslim clerics, but failed to keep tabs on them due to lack of resources.

Would this tragedy have happened if the appropriate resources had been found? Would resources have been available if they were not being squandered on monitoring political dissidents? Questions that the relatives of the dead should be asking, and demanding answers.

Since Tony Blair came to power, we have had a succession of Terrorists Acts, each more Draconian than its predecessor. What is this legislation for? Is it for dealing with real terrorists, or is it for dealing with political dissent, for clamping down on the domestic population?

Would we not be more successful in dealing with terrorists if we had more competent security agencies, rather than passed legislation whose only function is to suppress political dissent?

Anti-terror legislation was used for dealing with protests at the G8 Summit in Scotland in Summer 2005. It was invoked again Autumn 2005 to deal with an elderly gentleman who was manhandled out of the Neo-Labour Party Conference by a bunch of thugs for daring to shout out ‘rubbish’ at the government’s policy on Iraq during a speech by Jack ‘boot’ Straw. An elderly gentleman who had fled Nazi persecution in Europe.

When we tie in the abuses that we see all the time, the steady erosion of our civil rights in the name of the bogus ‘war on terror’, with with the abuses that Annie Machon has laid bare within the intelligence services, then we have every reason to be worried.

The off-the-record briefings and smear campaign run against Dr David Kelly were near identical to that run against David Shayler.

In the US, if someone breaks cover and blows the whistle, the administration shrugs and moves on. There may even be an independent inquiry, to which the whistleblower is invited to give evidence, the whistleblower is not prosecuted. ***(that was once upon a time the US took the advice of the UK and changed the law) In the UK, the whistleblower will be smeared in off-the-record briefings, probably prosecuted to serve as an example to others. If they try to give evidence, as David Shayler did to Tony Blair’s Intelligence and Security Committee, they will be ignored, or as we saw with David Kelly after his death, an inquiry will be launched which is nothing more than a cover-up and a whitewash. Having refused to hear evidence from David Shayler, members of the PM’s ISC went on to brief against him.

Lord Hutton, who on behalf of Tony Blair carried out the cover-up and whitewash on Dr David Kelly, was also one of the Law Lord who sat in judgment on David Shayler.

The difference between the US and the UK is that free speech is protected. Although this has started to change post-911 with the Patriot Act. Those who have spoken out regarding the 911 cover-up have been ignored, gagged or threatened, so even in the US the climate is changing for the worse. [see 9-11 Revealed]

Tony Blair is not satisfied with merely shooting the messenger, he also wants to shoot those who carry and repeat the message. In the Shayler Affair threats were issued against anyone who either tried to help or reported on what David Shayler was saying.

A former editor of Punch now has a criminal record for writing on the Shayler Affair, a student at Kingston University lost her course place after being arrested and detained for offering to mobilise public support for David Shayler when he was on the run from the authorities in France.

We are now seeing history repeat itself with threats against the media if they cover the infamous memo containing allegations that George W Bush wished to bomb the offices of Aljazeera in Qatar, a friendly country.

Annie Machon’s description of MI5 is one of incompetence and bureaucratic bungling. MI5 management that lie to Ministers and an oversight committee to cover up their incompetence and bungling. Competent officers leaving, leaving behind the failures who have nowhere else to go. Having once worked in a similar environment, my experience was very similar.

With MI6 it is more sinister. The picture painted of MI6 is that of an agency out of control. When not busy trying to kill people, MI6 is planting stories in its in-house newspaper The Daily Torygraph.

MI6 financed an Al-Qaeda plot to assassinate Colonel Gaddafi. Although the coup and assassination attempt failed, innocent civilian bystanders were nevertheless killed. But let us assume their hair-brained scheme had succeeded. If it had, Al-Qaeda would now be running Libya. Would the world have been a safer place?

One reason David and Annie went public on the MI6/Al-Qaeda plot was that they were one of the few who knew of the plot and feared the fate that later befell Dr David Kelly to silence them.

Violence begets violence. We see that all over the Middle East. We see it in Israeli-occupied Palestine, we see it in the illegally-occupied Iraq.

After the failed assassination and coup attempt, a different approach was tried with Colonel Gaddafi. Softly, softly diplomacy. As a result Colonel Gaddafi has come in from the cold, has given up any WMD programmes (assuming he ever had any), he is cooperating in the war on terrorism, and Libya is slowly, slowly moving towards democracy.

Contrast the Libyan diplomatic approach with the illegal war and occupation of Iraq.

A well written and researched book and Annie Machon should be complimented for having had the courage to write it. A pleasant and realistic change from the breathy, jolly-hockey-sticks account we have of MI5 in Open Secret by Dame Stella Rimington, former Director General MI5, an account where it is jolly good fun to bug and burgle one’s way across London and steam open other people’s post.

I still thought the essence of the Cold War and spies and stuff was fun. You know, going around listening to other people’s telephones and opening their mail and stuff.

We expect the establishment not to forgive Annie and David, and that has been their experience. If they keep their heads down, they are left alone. If they speak out, then they receive undue attention.

What they fear is ending up like Dr David Kelly, the man who exposed the lies behind the illegal war with Iraq. A man who was found dead in a wood with his wrists slashed. And for that reason they are careful to protect some of their sources, as they do not wish to see them end the same way.

In this they are not alone. Gerald James was the boss of Astra, once a firework company and the company that provided the propellant for the Iraqi super-gun. When Gerald James spoke out, he found his life was under threat. [see Gerald James, In the Public Interest, Warner Books, 1996]

All this is understandable. What is less understandable and deeply regrettable, are the attacks on the integrity of these two coming from within the dissident community. The only possible explanation, apart from the usual lunatic fringe, is that those making the attacks are agents of the state doing their best to destroy the credibility of those who have dared speak out at their former employers.

Highly recommended for anyone who wants to see a little light shed into the deeper recesses of of our intelligence agencies and wants to better understand how our civil rights are being eroded.

Annie Machon has written a devastating critique of our intelligence agencies and the need for reform. Grounds if nothing else for a public inquiry into their operation.

We need an intelligence agency that is there to protect democracy, that is accountable, not one which is there to enslave us.
