A great article by Kurt Nimmo. More truth about Belhaj, NATO, CIA, John McCain and others who joined hands to illegally destroy the sovereign nation of Libya. As I have reported in the past, Belhaj is the most hated man in Libya.

CIA Asset Joins Islamic State in Libya

Belhadj worked with U.S. and NATO to overthrow Gaddafi

Abdelhakim Belhadj has reportedly joined forces with the Islamic State, according to the journalist Sara Carter. Belhadj is a former al-Qaeda operative who was a key player in the overthrow of Moammar Gaddafi. He worked directly with the U.S. and NATO.

Kyle Shideler writes for The Washington Times:
If Belhadj has gone over to Islamic State, it will represent a major boost to Islamic State’s efforts to co-opt and bring in Libya’s existing jihadist forces under their banner, which now reportedly includes as many as 3,000 fighters. Belhadj’s forces play a significant role in the Islamist “Libyan Dawn” coalition (which includes the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda’s Ansar al-Sharia), which currently holds Tripoli, and which claims to be the rightful government in opposition to the U.N. recognized government of Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni.

The Islamic State in Libya is based in Derna, a city in the northeast part of the country. In 2001, it represented “one of the greatest concentrations of jihadi terrorists to be found anywhere in the world, and by some measures can be regarded as the leading source of suicide bombers anywhere on the planet,” according to Webster Tarpley.

It was also “the epicenter of the NATO-backed rebellion,” writes Tony Cartalucci.

In 2011 Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, a leading figure of the Derna jihadists, told the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Or he had recruited “around 25″ men from the Derna area in eastern Libya to fight against coalition troops in Iraq.

The Telegraph reported on March 25, 2011:

Mr al-Hasidi admitted he had earlier fought against “the foreign invasion” in Afghanistan, before being “captured in 2002 in Peshwar, in Pakistan”. He was later handed over to the US, and then held in Libya before being released in 2008.

Abdelhakim Belhadj’s links to key neocons (as the tweet above reveals) and Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi’s connection to the CIA-run and Saudi financed war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan provides further evidence al-Qaeda and its spawn, the Islamic State, formerly ISIS, are intelligence fabrications designed to perpetuate the war on terror and further the geostrategic agenda of the global elite.

Belhadj’s CIA rendition (with the help of British intelligence) and al-Hasidi’s capture by the U.S. reveal both to be intelligence assets.

The presence of the Islamic State in Iraq, Syria and now Libya is a key element in the next phase in the war on terror.

In late February the Islamic State released a video calling for jihadists from Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Egypt to immigrate to Libya.

Mohammed al-Dairi, the Libyan foreign minister, is calling for direct military intervention against the Islamic State. “I ask world powers to stand by Libya and launch military strikes against these groups,” he said in February. “This threat will move to European countries, especially Italy.”

THE TRUTH ABOUT ISIS/DAESH AND THEIR PUBLIC BEHEADING VIDEOS


THE TRUTH ABOUT ISIS/DAESH AND THEIR PUBLIC BEHEADING VIDEOS

In the last few months we have been bombarded by the Western Media who are the lapdogs of the War Lords with the most gruesome videos of beheading’s, burning prisoners alive, eating the heart off a dead soldier etc. But the first vision of this was done by the assassination of the late Qaddafi may he rest in peace in 2011, many of you will remember that the video was launched by the western media for 5 whole days 24/7 so that we would get used to the horrific images, even though a lot of bloggers and Libyan newscasters proved that the video was a fake, nobody would listen. I do not suggest that Qaddafi is alive or dead nobody knows where the truth lies. That was the first video shown over the whole globe it was a test for the upcoming Isillywood films to appear.

How could anyone forget the most majestic video with the terrorist cutting the heart of the dead Syrian soldier and eating it raw, could you count how many times they showed it on TV the media outlets? So by now your eyes and brain are getting used to the idea, it’s becoming normal and acceptable to you…. so they will hit you with the next video, the first mass killing of prisoners both Christian and Muslims remember those videos? Again it stayed in the news for a number of days…. by now you are being prepared to accept even worse things… Your brain and eyes start getting used to the mass graves, mass genocide, mass of everything. You and I do nothing we are sitting passive and watch the videos as it is something natural, we do not react, we do not go out and protest against the atrocities. So the media understands that you are ready for the next step the decapitation of Muslims and Christians…. now you are getting angry because as long as it was only Muslims you didn’t give a damn but what about the Christians they are our brothers while the Muslims are just plain dogs we do not care… yes the Muslim people for you are not human beings….

So now they are getting you angry you start complaining, making rallies, talking to your church ministers etc to push the government to do something, but what? To kill more million Arabs? if possible to get rid of the whole race, these rag tags barefoot nomads, dirty stinking bastards they are the problem to human kind, their religion is not about love but to hate and they want to invade us with their religion kill them all…

You may not think like that but the videos that are shown to you, plays into your emotional feelings – making you not to think but to act… and that is the point of the media and their masters, they want you to get so angry that when they tell you: “We have to put troops on the ground to fight these corporate terrorists (they will not tell you corporate) you will agree and you will pay more taxes while they will get richer, you will lose your son or daughter and in the long run the looser is you… 

WHAT I AM TRYING TO TELL YOU, ALL VIDEOS THAT ARE UPLOADED THEY ARE HOAX THEY NEVER HAPPENED THEY ARE PLAYING YOU…. I am not saying that the prisoners are not dead, they maybe are and maybe not but they are not beheaded… just to prove to you I will upload you a video which we Arabs make fun and bring down a notch about how fake their videos are:

Isis vs Islamic State or Daesh: What do the different names mean – and where they come from?


Isis vs Islamic State or Daesh: What do the different names mean – and where they come from?

 

The F.UK.US. corporate creation groups have only this terrorist flag of the Al-Qaeda/Nusra/Sharia/Isis/Daesh/ & other terrorist names use this flag. No one can claim its their own and they have only one thing in common… THAT IS TO DESTROY ALL ARAB NATIONS AND THE ISLAM.

 

The F.UK.US. corporate creation groups have only ONE terrorist flag of the Al-Qaeda/Nusra/Sharia/Isis/Daesh/ & other terrorist names use this flag. No one can claim its their own and they have only one thing in common… THAT IS TO DESTROY ALL ARAB NATIONS AND THE ISLAM. They are dressed  like a look alike Ninja and apparently they are insulting the Ninjas of  Japan, as the Japanese Ninjas had honor these trash have no honor, once they are caught they cry like little Rats begging for their lives and immediately giving up the names of their comrades. That’s how honorable they are…

If it were up to the terrorists themselves, the world would be calling them the “Islamic State” in recognition of the caliphate they have declared.

The rebrand launched in June year has spread, despite pleas from leading Muslims and other groups not to legitimise their status.

The British and US Governments are among those using the acronym Isil, while the name Isis is more commonly seen.  The four competing names are only a handful of those used by Isis, which emerged in 1999 when it was established by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian militant who allegedly ran a terror training camp and orchestrated bombings and beheadings in Iraq.

 

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has appointed himself caliph of the self-proclaimed Islamic State

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has appointed himself caliph of the self-proclaimed “Islamic State”

 

His group was initially known as Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad, before changing to the simpler al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) after pledging allegiance to Osama bin Laden’s network in October 2004.

Since then, the group has operated under numerous guises until its current leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, declared it the Islamic State in Iraq (Isi) in 2006, adding the “and al-Sham” to make “Isis” in 2013.

So what do the different names mean?

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis)

The original name for the group in Arabic was Al-Dawla Al-Islamiya fi al-Iraq wa al-Sham. The first three words translate to the Islamic State of Iraq while “al-Sham” refers to Syria and the wider surrounding area.

The group’s stated goal is to restore an Islamic state, or caliphate, in the entire region.

But in reality it is neither Islamic, nor is it a State. The group has no standing with faithful Muslims, nor among the international community of nations.

The acronym poses an issue for the many companies and brands around the world already using it or named after the ancient Egyptian goddess of the same name.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil)

The undefined region around Syria is historically referred to as the Levant (an archaic French phrase for the “lands of the rising sun”), including modern-day Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine and Jordan.

Daesh

‘Daesh cutthroats’.” Daesh, sometime spelled DAIISH or Da’esh, is short for Dawlat al-Islamiyah f’al-Iraq wa al-Sham.

Many Arabic-speaking media organisations refer to the group as such and there is an argument it is appropriately pejorative, deriving from a mixture of rough translations from the individual Arabic words, notably the Arabic verb دعس, within the name. The reason DAESH hates being called DAESH is because it’s similar to the verb Daes, which means “one who crushes something underfoot. It also sounds similar to Dahes, or “one who sows discord.”

So, from where did these terrorist groups got power, arms and finance? You do not have to look very far…. just look into your own government secret agencies, you have never questioned where your tax money goes? You have never questioned why you should renew your defense system with billions of dollars or euros? You never asked your government now that the Soviet Union seized (our first boogeyman) to exist why do we have another boogeyman? I am wondering had I asked, investigated where my tax money goes and getting the government to answer me maybe the world we live in would have been a better place to live. But like all of you, I was very busy with my career, believed that my government wanted the best for its civilians. How gullible I was then, never crossed my mind that my government would sacrifice me and millions like me to death so that we can create another war, another boogeyman just for the politicians and the elitists to get more money in their pockets…. while we starve, have health issues, been put into jail as a terrorist because some of us dare to tell the truth. Trying to get a job but always something happens and they tell me “sorry we can not hire you” this has been going on for the last 4 years, when America and its allies decided they needed a regime change in Libya without taking any consideration of the civilians who were happy with what they had. America and its rogue CIA had decided to install a new boogeyman in the Mediterranean peninsula, to force the European Union (which its majority in religion is Christian) into war with the so-called fanaticism Islam. America needs to bring back the crusaders… destabilize the Arab countries break them into smaller pieces so that they do not have the strength to fight them back. A very clever plan, it was in the making 30 years ago…. when I first heard about it I was in my early 20’s and I thought this could never happen that is how gullible I was…. I had argued with my friend who was a member of the PLO at the time, he was assassinated in front of my eyes and I still didn’t believe it. But if you check the evidence everything was in front of us, but we chose not to see it.

So where did they come from:

During the 1970′s the CIA used the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as a barrier, both to thwart Soviet expansion and prevent the spread of Marxist ideology among the Arab masses. The United States also openly supported Sarekat Islam against Sukarno in Indonesia, and supported the Jamaat-e-Islami terror group against Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in Pakistan. Last but certainly not least, there is Al Qaeda.

Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980′s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr. Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA and funded by the Saudis, in order to defeat the Russians in Afghanistan.

America’s relationship with Al Qaeda has always been a love-hate affair. Depending on whether a particular Al Qaeda terrorist group in a given region furthers American interests or not, the U.S. State Department either funds or aggressively targets that terrorist group. Even as American foreign policy makers claim to oppose Muslim extremism, they knowingly foment it as a weapon of foreign policy.

The Islamic State is its latest weapon that, much like Al Qaeda, is certainly backfiring. In order to understand why the Islamic State has grown and flourished so quickly, one has to take a look at the organization’s American-backed roots. The 2003 American invasion and occupation of Iraq created the pre-conditions for radical Sunni groups, like ISIS, to take root. America, rather unwisely, destroyed Saddam Hussein’s secular state machinery and replaced it with a predominantly Shiite administration. The U.S. occupation caused vast unemployment in Sunni areas, by rejecting socialism and closing down factories in the naive hope that the magical hand of the free market would create jobs. 

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) used to have a different name: Al Qaeda in Iraq. After 2010 the group rebranded and refocused its efforts on Syria. 

There are essentially three wars being waged in Syria: one between the government and the rebels, another between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and yet another between America and Russia. It is this third, neo-Cold War battle that made U.S. foreign policy makers decide to take the risk of arming Islamist rebels in Syria, because Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, is a key Russian ally. Rather embarrassingly, many of these Syrian rebels have now turned out to be ISIS thugs, who are openly brandishing American-made M16 Assault rifles. 

America’s Middle East policy revolves around oil and Israel. The invasion of Iraq has partially satisfied Washington’s thirst for oil, but ongoing air strikes in Syria and economic sanctions on Iran have everything to do with Israel. The goal is to deprive Israel’s neighboring enemies, Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Palestine’s Hamas, of crucial Syrian and Iranian support.

ISIS is not merely an instrument of terror used by America to topple the Syrian government; it is also used to put pressure on Iran. An Intelligence Report published in 2012, endorsed by all sixteen U.S. intelligence agencies, confirms that Iran ended its nuclear weapons program in 2003. Truth is, any Iranian nuclear ambition, real or imagined, is as a result of American hostility towards Iran, and not the other way around.

America is using ISIS in three ways: to attack its enemies in the Middle East, to serve as a pretext for U.S. military intervention abroad, and at home to foment a manufactured domestic threat, used to justify the unprecedented expansion of invasive domestic surveillance.  By rapidly increasing both government secrecy and surveillance, The American government is increasing its power to watch its citizens, while diminishing its citizens’ power to watch their government. Terrorism is an excuse to justify mass surveillance, in preparation for mass revolt. 

The so-called “War on Terror” should be seen for what it really is: a pretext for maintaining a dangerously oversized U.S. military. The “War on Terror” in October 2001, it has cost the American taxpayer approximately 6.6 trillion dollars and thousands of fallen sons and daughters; but, the wars have also raked in billions of dollars for Washington’s military elite.

In fact, more than seventy American companies and individuals have won up to $27 billion in contracts for work in postwar Iraq and Afghanistan over the last three years, according to a recent study by the Center for Public Integrity. According to the study, nearly 75 per cent of these private companies had employees or board members, who either served in, or had close ties to, the executive branch of the Republican and Democratic administrations, members of Congress, or the highest levels of the military.

The US government trained, armed, funded and supported Osama bin Laden and his followers in Afghanistan during the cold war. With a huge investment of $3,000,000,000 (three billion US dollars), the CIA effectively created and nurtured bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terrorist network using American tax-payers money. Afghanistan is one of the world’s poorest countries, where such an enormous sum sum of money would have had extraordinary value.

I think that Tony Cartalucci expresses it better than me and here is what he say’s:

US claims to be waging war against “Islamic State” whose various “al-Baghdadi” leaders do not exist.  In 2007, the New York Times revealed that long-vilified “Islamic State” leader Abdullah Rashid al-Baghdadi did not exist, and that the creation of this fictional character was a ruse to obfuscate the role of foreigners in the creation and perpetuation of “Al Qaeda in Iraq.” 

Brigadier General Kevin Bergner, the chief American military spokesman, said the elusive Baghdadi was actually a fictional character whose audio-taped declarations were provided by an elderly actor named Abu Adullah al-Naima. In an article titled, “Leader of Al Qaeda group in Iraq was fictional, U.S. military says,” the NYT reports that:

The NYT would also reveal the purpose of the deception:

The ruse, Bergner said, was devised by Abu Ayub al-Masri, the Egyptian-born leader of Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, who was trying to mask the dominant role that foreigners play in that insurgent organization.  

The ploy was to invent Baghdadi, a figure whose very name establishes his Iraqi pedigree, install him as the head of a front organization called the Islamic State of Iraq and then arrange for Masri to swear allegiance to him. Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s deputy, sought to reinforce the deception by referring to Baghdadi in his video and Internet statements.

The admission by US military leaders, reported in the NYT, reveals that the so-called “Islamic State” was nothing more than an appendage of Al Qaeda – with Al Qaeda itself directly armed, funded, and backed by stalwart US allies, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Despite the NYT and the Pentagon’s admissions, the entire ruse has continued, on an exponential scale.

US Intentionally Raised and Unleashed Al Qaeda Upon Iraq and Syria 

Al Qaeda’s current presence in Iraq and Syria, and their leading role in the fight against the Iranian-leaning government’s of Damascus and Baghdad, are the present-day manifestation of a Western criminal conspiracy exposed as early as 2007.  Revealed by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh in his 2007 article,  “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” it was stated explicitly that (emphasis added):

To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda

While the NYT attempted to shift blame to sponsors in “Pakistan” in 2007, the paper itself, along with many others across the West’s vast media monopolies, have since then admitted that America’s closest allies in the Middle East are behind Al Qaeda in Syria and Iraq, not “Pakistan.”Hersh would go on to document in his 9-page report, the West and its regional partners intentional engineering of a devastating, regional sectarian bloodbath.

The Daily Beast would report in an article literally titled, “America’s Allies Are Funding ISIS,” that:

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), now threatening Baghdad, was funded for years by wealthy donors in Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, three U.S. allies that have dual agendas in the war on terror.

The extremist group that is threatening the existence of the Iraqi state was built and grown for years with the help of elite donors from American supposed allies in the Persian Gulf region. There, the threat of Iran, Assad, and the Sunni-Shiite sectarian war trumps the U.S. goal of stability and moderation in the region.

Unfortunately for the spin doctors at the Daily Beast, the fact that this “threat of Iran, Assad, and the Sunni-Shiite sectarian war,” has already been revealed as a joint enterprise not only among Persian Gulf autocracies, but in fact, led by the United States itself, means that Al Qaeda’s expansion in Syria and Iraq, is the verbatim manifestation of the conspiracy warned about by Hersh in 2007.

Baghdadi Ruse Not Only to Hide “Foreign” role, but to Hide US-Saudi Involvement

Today, another “al-Baghdadi” allegedly leads the “Islamic State.” His existence and leadership role is also unconfirmed and the likelihood that Al Qaeda’s “Baghdadi ruse” is simply being repeated, amid feigned and complicit ignorance by the Pentagon, is all but confirmed.  Not only does the “Islamic State’s” leader appear to be entirely fictional, but so is ISIS itself. It is nothing more than the rebranding of Al Qaeda, working seamlessly with other Western and Persian Gulf-backed militant fronts including Al Nusra, for the explicit goal of overthrowing the government of Syria and using the despoiled nation as a staging ground for a similar proxy war to be waged upon Iran.

The United States, bombing a fictional terrorist organization led by a non-existent, fictional character, is at the very heart of the ruse described by the NYT in 2007, a ruse that continues to present day. The goal is not to eliminate ISIS, but to use the fictional front as a pretext to further intervene on behalf of real militant extremists forming the core of the joint US-NATO-Saudi proxy front for the purpose of overthrowing the government in Damascus.

Attempts to portray ISIS as an “indigenous” movement sprung from the Iraqi and Syrian deserts, is to obfuscate the fact that Al Qaeda is currently harbored by NATO in nearby Turkey, and the summation of its support, fighters, weapons, and cash flows from NATO territory, not “seized oilfields” in Syria or from amongst local populations.

This reality comes into sharper focus considering other recent reports that so-called “ISIS” territory has in fact, doubled in the wake of US airstrikes, not shrunk. Fox News reports in their article, “ISIS control of Syria reportedly expands since start of US-led airstrikes,” that:

The Islamic State terror group reportedly has increased the amount of territory they control in Syria as the U.S.-led bombing campaign approaches its four-month anniversary.

The Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. government and independent assessments, say that the Islamic State, commonly known as ISIS, has control of a large swath of northeastern Syria and is creeping toward key cities in the country’s west, including Aleppo, a center of the uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad.

At face value, it would seem as if US policy has failed utterly, if in fact its goal was to truly neutralize ISIS. But with ISIS a fictional creation led by non-existent leaders, and the stated goal of the US being the overthrow of the Syrian government, the doubling of territory held by Al Qaeda, and Al Qaeda’s approach to cities like Aleppo on the brink of being liberated by Syrian troops, it is clear that America’s presence in Syria – not to mention in neighboring Iraq – is to support, not stop these terrorist forces.

Recognizing the West’s role in Syria as unprecedented, deplorable, genocidal state-sponsorship of terrorism, and treating the terrorist fronts operating in and along Syria’s borders as a foreign incursion, may allow Syria and its allies to reveal current military operations as a massive counter-terrorism effort, not a “civil war,” and allowing for more open support for the government in Damascus to ensure this effort succeeds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

West failing in Libya


West failing in Libya

by Richard Galustian

TIMES OF MALTA.COM

The barbaric terrorist organisation, Isis (Islamic State) declared its war on Libya and Egypt last week with its ‘Message signed in blood to the Christian nation’.

If there was ever a time for the West to support Libyan Prime Minister Abdullah Al Thinni’s democratically-elected, internationally-recognised government in Tobruk, it should have been now.

In an address to the United Nations Security Council last Wednesday, Libya’s Foreign Minister, Mohammed al-Dairi, called on the international community to help Libya combat Isis by allowing it to build its national army: “This would come through a lifting of the embargo on weapons, so that our army can receive material and weapons, so as to deal with this rampant terrorism.”

Yet, despite this plea to the UN, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said: “The problem is that there isn’t a government in Libya that is effective and in control of its territory. There isn’t a Libyan military which the international community can effectively support.”

He also claimed that “the first condition has to be the creation of a government of national unity… then the international community needs to rally very quickly around that government of national unity and ensure that it has the means to deal with terrorism”.

The demand from London (reiterated by Washington) for a unity government is something that Libyans will inevitably fail to achieve and just buys Isis more time to seize Libyan territory. It represents a gross error of judgement by the UK, in particular, which threatened to use its veto in the UN Security Council.

Don’t the UK and the US realise that recent events in Libya pose a real and imminent threat to Europe and all western interests?

In addition to the obvious arms needed to defeat Isis, there is clearly a requirement by the Libyan air force for air lift transport planes and helicopters if only for humanitarian missions across the length and breadth of the vast country.

In addition, there is a need for used fighters that could be satisfied from friendly Arab countries.

Moreover, there are requirements for fast patrol craft for maritime surveillance operations given the huge numbers of illegal refugees flowing to southern Europe.

So Libya has no time to waste.

In 2013, while attending Idex, the world’ largest defence exhibition in Abu Dhabi, Abd El Nasser Busnina, a senior air force officer and prominent leader of the February revolution four years ago, said: “We have 2,000 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline to defend and six borders with African countries… We need to rebuild our armed forces. The equipment we have is old and in need of repair.”

Those words are as true today as they were two years ago.

It’s interesting to note that Busnina is undergoing advanced officer training at a US war college and will be one of a handful of American-trained officers to return to Libya in 2016.

Russia wants to fill the void left in Libya by the Americans and the British and supply arms directly to Tobruk, something Moscow is already doing indirectly through Egypt.

This helps Russia widen its sphere of influence throughout the Mena region.

It is important to remember that the Libyan air force is mostly of Russian and former Eastern bloc origin.

The US and the UK must alter their policies so that North Africa remains in the Western camp or, alternatively, resign themselves to cede a part of North Africa to Russia and certain EU countries commercially, politically and militarily.

A notable exception in the West is the French, who seem to have understood the dynamics of the Maghreb, in common with the Russians.

Paris, of course, is already fully engaged in the Maghreb and Mena region, from Mali to the Arabian Gulf, with the appropriate force structure, sales and what looks like a thought-out strategy.

France’s coup in selling its Rafale fifth generation fighters to Egypt last week inevitably will create a domino effect of similar extremely valuable contracts for France from other countries in the Middle East.

Libya is the Maghreb country most in immediate danger, with the tragic miscalculation by the West, which continues to talk to Tripoli’s rebel Dawn coalition.

This is coupled with the UK’s and America’s decision to reject the Libyan government’s plea for a lifting of the arms embargo to fight IS and the consequence of trying to impose a ‘unity government’.

This would effectively force the existing democratically-elected Tobruk government to resign, which it will resist, and could be the trigger that starts a process of partitioning the country into two states. Shame and blame on the international community falls squarely on the shoulders of the West if that occurs.

All these developments in the Maghreb region, particularly in Libya, should be of great and immediate concern to Malta.

How Isis Is Fake


How Isis Is Fake

Since August 2014, the US Air Force with the support of a coalition of 19 countries has relentlessly waged an intensified air campaign against Syria and Iraq allegedly targeting  the Islamic State brigades.  

According to Defense News, over 16,000 airstrikes were carried out from August 2014 to mid January 2015.  Sixty percent of the air strikes were conducted by the US Air Force using advanced jet fighter and bombing capabilities  (Aaron Mehta, “A-10 Performing 11 Percent of Anti-ISIS Sorties”Defense News, January 19, 2015.)

The airstrikes have been casually described by the media as part of  a “soft” counter-terrorism operation, rather than an act of all out war directed against Syria and Iraq.

This large scale air campaign which has resulted in countless civilian casualties has been routinely misreported by the mainstream media. According to  Max Boot, senior fellow in national security at the Council on Foreign Relations. ”Obama’s strategy in Syria and Iraq is not working… [because] the U.S. bombing campaign against ISIS has been remarkably restrained”. (Newsweek, February 17, 2015, emphasis added)

Americans are led to believe that the Islamic State constitutes a formidable force confronting the US military and threatening Western Civilization. The thrust of media reporting is that the US Air Force has failed and that “Obama should get his act together” in effectively confronting this  ”Outside Enemy” of America.

According to CFR Max Boot, military escalation is the answer: what is required is for the president “to dispatch more aircraft, military advisers, and special operations forces, while loosening the restrictions under which they operate.” (Ibid)

What kind of aircraft are involved in the air campaign? The F-16 Fighting Falcon (above),  The F-15E Strike Eagle (image below), The A-10 Warthog, not to mention Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor stealth tactical fighter aircraft.

Question for Our Readers

Why has the US Air Force not been able to wipe out the Islamic State which at the outset was largely equipped with conventional small arms not to mention state of the art Toyota pickup trucks?

F-15E Strike Eagle.jpg

From the very outset, this air campaign has NOT been directed against ISIS.  The evidence confirms that the Islamic State is not the target. Quite the opposite.

The air raids are intended to destroy the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria.

The USAF-15E Strike Eagle

We call on our readers to carefully reflect on the following image, which describes the Islamic State convoy of pickup trucks entering Iraq and crossing a 200 km span of open desert which separates the two countries.

This convoy entered Iraq in June 2014.

What would have been required from a military standpoint to wipe out an ISIS convoy with no effective anti-aircraft capabilities?

Without an understanding of military issues, common sense prevails.

If they had wanted to eliminate the Islamic State brigades, they could have “carpet” bombed their convoys of Toyota pickup trucks when they crossed the desert from Syria into Iraq in June. 

The answer is pretty obvious, yet not a single mainstream media has acknowledged it.

The  Syro-Arabian Desert is open territory (see map right). With state of the art jet fighter aircraft (F15, F22 Raptor, F16) it would have been  –from a military standpoint–  ”a piece of cake”, a rapid and expedient surgical operation, which would have decimated the Islamic State convoys in a matter of hours.

Instead what we have witnessed is an ongoing drawn out six months of relentless  air raids and bombings, and the terrorist enemy is apparently still intact.

(In comparison, the NATO bombing raids of Yugoslavia in 1999 lasted about three months (March 24-June 10, 1999).

And we are led to believe that the Islamic State cannot be defeated by a powerful US-led military coalition of 19 countries.

The air campaign was not intended to decimate the Islamic State.

The counter-terrorism mandate is a fiction. America is the Number One “State Sponsor of Terrorism”.   

The Islamic State is not only protected by the US and its allies, it is trained and financed by US-NATO, with the support of Israel and Washington’s Persian Gulf allies.

While no one should take ISIS to be any less of a threat than it is, we might take some small consolation from the possibility that some of the sculptures the militants smashed on video this week at the Nineveh Museum in Mosul, Iraq, were replicas. While an Assyrian stone lion smashed in the videos is indisputably a terrible loss, the destruction of replicas in this particular case may soften the blow.

“According to archaeologists, most if not all the statues in the Mosul museum are replicas not originals,” reports Channel 4 News, London. “The reason they crumble so easily is that they’re made of plaster. ‘You can see iron bars inside,” pointed out Mark Altaweel of the Institute of Archaeology at University College, London, as we watched the video together. ‘The originals don’t have iron bars.’”

“According to the British Institute,” adds Channel 4, “the originals were taken to Baghdad for safekeeping. ISIS probably wouldn’t care about the distinction. One false idol is the same as another.”

All the same, reaction around the world has been swift and horrified (see The Metropolitan Museum and Others Respond to ISIS Destruction of Assyrian Sculptures). ISIS has also done a brisk business in smuggling antiquities out of the region for sale on foreign markets (see Increase in Antiquities Smuggling Busts amidst Government Crackdown), though the international trade is mostly focused on smaller items.

Why are the militants so bent on destruction of the region’s cultural heritage? Amr al-Azm, a Syrian anthropologist and historian, told the New York Times that the destruction of artworks, and the slaughter and capture of Assyrians and others in the area that it accompanied, are strategic. While the militants claim that they are smashing the sculptures because they are idols forbidden by Islam, he posits that “It’s all a provocation” aimed to lure U.S. and Iraqi forces to try to retake Mosul. “They want a fight with the West because that’s how they gain credibility and recruits,” Azm said.

ISIS has “repeatedly threatened to destroy [the museum’s] collection,” according to the Times, since they took the city in June.

CNN gets international ridicule after fake ISIS report

 

CNN
Back in 2012, CNN dismantled their investigative reporting department. They laid off many people, including their most high profile investigative reporters.

There had a been a number of scandals where CNN employees were ordered to change their stories for political reasons. The most famous incident involved former CNN investigative reporter Amber Lyons. She recorded evidence that the government of Bahrain was violently suppressing dissidents. CNN censored her report on behalf of the government of Bahrain. The Bahrain Economic Development Board paid CNN to control how the country is portrayed.

After being fired Lyons told the public that CNN also took money from Kazakhstan and the Republic of Georgia in exchange for positive media coverage.

Since then, it is becoming increasingly apparent to everyone that CNN has no value as a media outlet. The routinely make up elements of stories.

CNN’s latest fake claim is being ridiculed all over the world. This is an entire five minute segment of total nonsense.

ISIS is not luring women with kittens and nutella. ISIS does not have a brigade of female fighters. More on female fighters below.*

The Kurdish Peshmerga has a female regiment that is trained in combat. Because they are desperate for more fighters, members of the female regiment are allowed to volunteer to go to the frontlines. Most of the female fighters you have seen on tv are from the Kurdish HPG. This is the military wing of the Worker’s Party of Kurdistan [PKK]. This is a pro-Communist Kurdish separatist group in Turkey. HPG believes in using women in combat as part of their Marxist ideology. HPG fighters are actively fighting ISIS in both Syria and Iraq. The Peshmerga is sponsored by the Iraqi government. The HPG has no state sponsors. In fact the PKK/HPG are a banned “terrorist organization” in Turkey.

Kurdistan was a short lived Soviet Satellite state after WWII. Many Kurds have remained hard-line Communists every since. The second largest party in Iraqi Kurdistan is the Socialist PUK, which is allied with the PKK in Turkey. In 1996, the PUK and PKK fought a civil war against the centrist Kurdistan Democratic Party [KDP]. Both the United States and Iran sponsored the Communist/Socialist side. The centrist Kurds, who presently are part of the Iraqi ruling coalition today, begged Saddam Hussein for help when Iranian troops started launching attacks from across the border.

Hussein defeated the Kurdish communists, and the US accused Hussein of war crimes.

The Fake Beheadings

Steven Sotloff appears in two different videos: the first time in the video “Message to America” ​​where is beheaded the poor freelance American James Foley, in the second video, “A second message to America” ​​in which the journalist from his message against Obama, forced by jihadists Isis. Many have speculated that both videos were not truthful.

As for the video on the beheading of James Foley has spoken about Christopher Davidson, a Middle East expert, noted the “windy” on the orange jumpsuit of the reporter, that you can not see the grass instead. Moreover, the “pixelated on the neck” of the journalist and “the absence of tension” are additional elements that raise doubts. Even the American media have expressed perlessità as pointed out by the nineteenth century. The Russians however have thought the video was mounted in a manner not used dalll’Isis. It ‘s true, but to a certain point: the ISIS fact, in addition to being well financed and armed, has a health professional communication, the “Al Hayat Media center” of which you can see the logo that appears in other Isis video. The Russians say the video is fake and is a ploy to create the casus belli and invade Syria. What, if anything, could generate suspicion is precisely the sudden piety militia that if yesterday turned bloody video, slamming the horror in the face to the world, sowing the streets the deaths of hundreds of innocent people in shock, in the video anti-American omit the act of decapitation and show, in the case of Foley, the headless body, in the case of Sotloff rather not show it the act of decapitation or the headless body. Why?

But this is not the only false note in that diabolical construction Isis, there is more. As it was easy to see for all the person identified as the two Sotloff video seems to be different. One has the long face, while the other has a more round face shape. You could think of a difference of perspectives of the cameraman, but on closer inspection it is not exactly so. The video of the “second Sotloff” in fact, offers a greater variety of perspectives inquadrazione of the subject and it is easy to compare them with those of the “first Sotloff”. The nose is similar but not identical (but that should not change too much with the different facial grimacing). Eyebrows are similar, but the first Sotloff the corruccia differently from the second Sotloff yet both have the sun in his eyes. The ears are the same as the shape of the mouth seems apparently almost the same. The shape of the face really. And, to put it all, do not even like to Sotloff of which were circulated photos from the family. What’s more, while the journalist James Foley had been kidnapped for some time and his abduction had been made known in America, for Sotloff the story is, again, different: he was kidnapped by the time yes, but the family did not want to disclose the affair. Had Israeli citizenship, but this is a fact to be kept secret. And yet, perhaps to divert attention of Sotloff, his facebook profile does not seem to exist while there to Foley. Sotloff only has a twitter profile that is stopped by August 3, 2013.

Some people then assume that, at least in the case of Sotloff, was used an actor (in the first video). In the second video may be the same but nobody Sotloff sure it is dead anyway since it is not shown in the video at the full act of the slaughter. In the video of Foley instead the act of sticking is displayed but the sound emitted by the victim appears to have been installed at a later date as reported by forensic analyzes. In the case of short Foley is not excluded that the death by decapitation really occurred and that the head is his and not that of a victim or a puppet, but occurred after and perhaps not for the hand of the Executioner that, for the services secrets is an English rapper.

By those who are used to the doubles? Who is really Steven Sotloff? We can not know for sure. The only thing certain is that they remain strong doubt that the people who appear in the two videos are the same person. Until now only the great leaders of the secret services, heads of state, they used to do double the operations, but in the case of Sotloff the resemblance is so fine as to not even be noticed.

After Rita’s fake James Foley “beheading,” CNN interviewed a young woman who claimed to be James Foley’s sister, in order to create human interest in the hoax. This is how she looks the day after that his brother was beheaded:

THE FOLEY'S SISTER THE DAY AFTER THAT HIS BROTHER WAS BEHEADED ON CAMERA, YEAH RIGHT!!!!

THE FOLEY’S SISTER THE DAY AFTER THAT HIS BROTHER WAS BEHEADED ON CAMERA, YEAH RIGHT!!!!

In Rita Katz Prankster Zionist Mossad’s 22-minute video, Mr Al-Kasasbeh wears an orange tee-shirt and pants, and is professionally videotaped from various angles making a confession, just like CIA employee James Foley, Stephen Sotloff, David Haines, Alan Henning, Peter Kassig, and so on. All those videos came from Ritz Katz.

But instead of “beheading,” this time Rita had ISIS (i.e. Jordanian army guys posing as ISIS) supposedly burn Al-Kasasbeh alive in a cage on 3 Jan 2015, or maybe it was 3 Feb 2015. (Different media outlets give different dates.)

Anyway, Rita had the ISIS video before ISIS did, as always.

The only corporate media outlet willing to pay for her latest video was Fox Jews. The other outlets merely mention it, claiming that it further justifies the “war on terror,” plus the war on Syria. And Iraq. And Yemen. And Somalia. And Pakistan. And Afghanistan. And so on.

And it further vindicates Chris Kyle too.

Rita’s latest fake involved a Jordanian. That’s because King Abdullah II is now helping in the war on Syria, and he wants the support of the Jordanian Arabs to slaughter their fellow Arabs next door. News of Rita Katz’ latest farce was released as King Abdullah visited Obama at the White House.

Japanese Prime Minister Shizo Abe wants to start bombing Syria too. Therefore Rita did fake videos for him that supposedly show Haruna Yukawa and Kenji Gotō being “beheaded” by ISIS.

In Rita’s video (link below) the “ISIS” terrorists are actually members of the Jordanian army. Their fatigues are in perfect condition, and everything between the men is identical. Beneath their helmets are balaclavas identical to those in Rita’s hoax.

Effective hoaxes are those that people want to believe. If one of the Jordanian army guys who posed as “ISIS” members came forward and publicly explained that it was a hoax that he took part in, no one would believe him, because no one would want to. Everyone would call him a liar; an agent of “ISIS.” Even if the guy had a behind-the-scenes video of the making of the video hoax, people would call his real video a hoax, and the hoax video “real.”

You can see Rita’s 22-minute video at Fox Jews. It’s incredibly fake, but the actual burning is not bad, although it doesn’t come until the 18-minute mark.
