The Art of Manipulation: Israel Manoeuvres to Put US on War Footing with Iran

21 Oct

[Published 20 October, 2017]

In the week that the puppet president, Trump announced he was tearing up the nuclear non-proliferation deal with Iran, it appears that it is Israel that is the one pulling his strings from the outset. Rehmat’s World wrote that American writer and author Dan Sanchez in an article had predicted that the bloody war by Israel and its Zionist lobbyists in the Middle East was destined to fail, in which he calls Israel a warmonger. Even as early as 1990, former president Reagan accused Israel of misleading him over the Iran contra affair.

Trump’s announcement that it was a “bad deal” clearly illustrates his willingness to wag tail when told by his master but also his naivety on the world stage and grasping of the fundamentals of basic diplomacy. The obtuse and train wreck of a moron even had the brass neck to lay blame on Iran for successive US invasions in the Middle East and North Africa.

For the record, when the security of the entire region of the Middle East and, indeed, the rest of the world is at stake, the last thing any sane individual should do, is seek to antagonise a wrongly perceived obstacle and enemy to world peace. Even the most simple-minded individual should know this.

As David Frum put it in the Atlantic, Trump’s threats aren’t credible because he himself isn’t credible. In other words, Trump is a complete moron. In the same piece, Frum goes on to suggest that Trump’s announcement is not unwelcome to some. Well, yes, Israel wants it to happen.

Trump should have learned this lesson from the recent response he received from Kim Jong Un after his sabre-rattling and making baseless threats to destroy North Korea.

In short, Trump has absolutely no power at all to tear up the deal, whatever Israel demands and neither does the US Congress, or the US State department. The sheer notion of a war with Iran is ludicrous wishful thinking at best. Israel can whistle.

Rightly so, Trump was immediately slapped down by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and a European Commission spokeswoman. Both of whom reminded Trump that the deal was a multi-lateral and not a bi-lateral agreement. Even France and Britain have spoken out against Trump on pulling out of the deal.

As was the case with the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan before, Israel’s demands and expectations, are that the US ultimately dismantle Iran by creating another proxy war under false pretences of WMDs. This is not going to happen, because the rest of the world will not allow it. To tear it up would require the consent of all parties to the deal, which is never going to happen. China and Russia will never acquiesce.

Feck knows what Trump’s thinking was when coming out with this statement and obviously he wasn’t listening to any advice given to him before making it except that which was being fed to him via Israel.

Just like most other US president’s, Trump is another of Israel’s lapdog, acting like a deranged wind-up duracell bunny, with a perma case of foot-in-mouth and crass arrogance in a ‘who’s got the biggest dick contest.’

In addition to subsidising Israel’s economy to the tune of billions of US taxpayer dollars, the US and Israel have always had a special relationship regarding but-not-limited-to, who in the Middle East is permitted to possess such weapons and go unchecked.

The relationship has always favoured Israel, as you can see here:

For those somehow unaware or ill-informed, the deal between Israel and the US, is that the latter acts as guard dog, whilst neglecting the American people, in favour of funding Israel’s tech developments and protecting its expansionism.

In Netanyahu’s recent speech to the UN General Assembly, he declared, “Israel’s policy toward the nuclear deal with Iran is very simple: Change it or cancel it.” And he made no secret of what that meant: If Trump doesn’t “cancel” the deal, he must get rid of its “sunset clause” and demand that Iran end its advanced centrifuges and long-range missile program, among other fundamentally unattainable objectives.

It is also well-known that Jared Kushner is a strong advocate of Israel and a longstanding friend of Netanyahu’s, wrote Gareth Porter in the above article. In his book, Porter contends that the nuclear threat by Iran is entirely manufactured by Israel.

To add further weight to Israel pulling the strings, it was the Israeli senior diplomat, Elad Ratson, attached to the British embassy of Israel, who kind of let the let the cat of the bag, so-to-speak.

Within a few days of Trump’s announcement, the US Treasury put out a statement designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a supporter of global terrorism but stopping short of accusing it of the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction.

As with many others, Ratson was quick to jump on and praise the statement, suggesting that it was a great move. When asked what he meant and to clarify the role of Israel in the matter he clammed up and immediately blocked the person asking him on social media but not before agreeing that war was on the cards. Ratson also praised the decision by the US to pull funding and support for UNESCO and suggested the UNRWA was next in Israel’s sights for criticism of Israel’s human rights abuses against Palestinians.

In June 2017, Hanin Abou Salem, for Al-Jazeera, claimed that the Netanyahu wants to disband the UNRWA because of its humanitarian work with Palestinian refugees. Ratson’s posts on social media and comments made by Ambassador Nikki Haley to the UN would seem to confirm. Until there is a solution between Israel and Palestine then the mandate of UNRWA is not done, says Salem. Therefore, the only way for Israel to resolve its Palestinian problem is to remove UNRWA.

As stated earlier, all of this is manufactured to serve Israel’s interests, whilst it, Israel, wreaks havoc across the world unabated. To be clear, Israel is a warmonger and worse than all other countries combined, in my personal opinion.

I never thought I would say this, but Israel is a pariah, largely responsible for all the wars in the Middle East and North Africa since the 70s, and humanity’s greatest threat. Yes, the US invaded and did the killing but Israel put them up to, causing complete carnage and creating the current refugee crisis in Europe in the process.

If Israel continues its meddling in this way, then it needs to be put down like the rabid dog that it is. Either Israel plays peacemaker and starts being civil or drag it and Netanyahu to the international criminal court. Should that fail and Israel continues in the way it has been, then dismantling it is the only solution in order to save the rest of humanity.

As the Kuwaiti official, Marzouq Al-Ghanim said this week to the Israeli delegation at conference in Russia: “occupiers… if you have no shame… get out of the room.”

London Terror Attack: A False Flag or Gross Incompetence?

3 Jun

WATCH ALL CLIPS AND CLICK ALL LINKS!

[Published 04 June 2017]

Just as the Youtube clip below was a staged event of a fake terrorist attack in Syria, so yesterday’s terror attack in London was a false flag.

For those who do not know, a false flag is an incident that occurs, but was in fact a staged event. The specific intention of a false flag is for the purpose of spreading propaganda and/ or to instil fear in us.

To be absolutely clear: to say that an incident, such as an act or terrorism is a false flag should not detract from the panic and fear it instills and the harm or loss of life it causes to victims and their families.

It is no less tragic or abhorrent.

In the case of the Manchester attack the week before, the person who committed this atrocity, Salman Abedi, was known to the authorities for more than five years. Yet, despite warnings from the FBI and members of his local community, including, allegedly, his own mother, the security services and British authorities were apparently completely unaware of either his extremist views, his movements leading up to the attack, or his intentions to carry out the attack.

We already know from sources including the media, that Abedi planned to martyr himself, using what has been described as a sophisticated explosive device; for which he would have likely required technical expertise, as he did not possess the know-how or expertise himself.

Abedi’s attack just so happened to occur at the very same time as a general election in the UK; in which the Labour party opposition leader, Jeremy Corbyn, was, and continues to be, harangued by the current government and the media in baseless smears and accusations regarding his non-existent support for the IRA and Hamas.

Immediately following the Manchester attack, Theresa May’s government announced that it was increasing the security threat of another imminent attack, from “severe” to “critical”.

The authorities also claimed, that Abedi was part of a terror cell and had made repeated trips to Syria and Libya.

IMG_20170604_121813.jpg

More than 30 terror related arrests were subsequently made in the Greater Manchester area, including reports of a woman being shot by armed police, whose name has not yet been released and neither have her family members spoken out or been interviewed.

The police, government, and the security service, have since confirmed that Abedi was a lone wolf — and not part of any terror cell.

The terror threat level was dropped back to severe less than a week later.

What has also come to light, is that Abedi, plus several members of his family, were also on the payroll to overthrow Qadafi in Libya and latterly Assad in Syria by British security services.

As noted by John Pilger, the British government maintained “assets”, who were cultivated by MI5 handlers.

Some have called Abedi’s act of terrorism blowback for British Foreign policy.

Remarkably, it was French authorities who informed the media of Abedi’s travels to Syria. When asked to confirm how they knew this, French Interior Minister, Gerard Collomb, said British authorities had made them aware.

It begs the very serious question: why would the British authorities ask the French to make an announcement to the press about something they were already aware.

Despite the multiple arrests of more than 20 suspected associates of Abedi, why has every single one been released without charge?

Now, on the very eve of the London attack, several pertinent things happened on social media, at the scene, and in the immediate aftermath of the attack.

First, we have footage taken at the scene on the eve of the attack of police officers and apparent ‘crisis actors’ – yes, you heard that correctly – stripping down to their underwear in the street and changing clothing in shop doorways.

In the footage below, some of the officers appear to be putting on riot gear, but pay attention to the officer on the far left who takes of his uniform and puts on a pair of camouflage trousers.

As is very clearly indicated and shown in the image below, the officer who puts on a pair of camouflage trousers is actually shown as one of the so-called terrorists, later reported and photographed as being shot dead by police.

He is wearing the same t-shirt and the same camouflage trousers with his right leg raised, despite being apparently shot dead.

In a further post on social media, we also have evidence posted by a Ryan Hooper, not less than an hour before the first media reports of a terrorist attack, that both London Bridge and Borough stations were closed.

Second, Amber Rudd, the current Home Secretary, appearing at hustings… to persuade voters to allow her retain her seat in the upcoming general election, was filmed censuring one of her rival candidates, Nicholas Wilson.

Wilson is standing as an independent and recently exposed Rudd’s connections and financial dealings in the Panama Papers. Nicholas Wilson has also been relentless in pursuing HSBC for defrauding its customers, tax avoidance, and financial crimes, for the last 10 years.

In the Youtube clip above, Rudd is clearly seen passing a note to the Chair of the hustings, asking for Wilson  to be silenced.

Why?

Because, as above, Wilson had previously exposed her links to organised financial crime, a series of bankrupt businesses, and links to individuals convicted of financial crimes.

Before being silenced at the hustings, Wilson was speaking of the UK government’s involvement in illegal arms sales and trade to fund and support terrorism and its efforts to destabilise Middle Eastern countries.

Wilson’s references to Rudd on the matter, related to her role as Home Secretary, in her visits to broker arms sales with the Kingdom of Saud, that in all likelihood contravene international law.

Less than an hour later, on news of the attack coming to light, the media and the police reported that there were three separate attacks in London.

Early reports listed the attacks as having taken place at London Bridge, Borough Market, and Vauxhall.

In the early hours, however, that the story had changed.

The socalled attack in Vauxhall was subsequently reported – both by the police and the media – as a non-terrorist incident.

Borough and London Bridge stations were closed, remember? So why not close Vauxhall station, even as a precautionary measure?

Reports were already coming in of three men in a white van, who were reported as being seen driving erratically at speed across London Bridge, who then exited the van and ran toward Borough Market, stabbing and slashing at people on the streets who were out socialising.

No one has captured any footage of this white van.

Yet, in December 2016 a ferrari mounted the pavement in Battersea, injuring seven.

Similar non-terrorist incidents have occurred in Islington and Brentwood in recent months.

One onlooker, Gerald, recounted to the media, that he saw the attackers stabbing people indiscriminately and considered throwing a stall from the market at them.

Really, Gerald?

Borough Market is closed at that time of night, so how and where would you have obtained a stall to throw at these attackers?

There is no camera, mobile phone, or street camera footage of the white van driving erratically across London Bridge or of the attackers stabbing people in Borough High Street or near the market.

In a further contradictory report, a photographer, Gabriele Sciotto, speaks with the media regarding his doubts that the attack involved explosives and that he was suspicious or doubtful that the images he took of two of the attackers wearing canisters that could be detonated, were in fact fake in his opinion.

Scroll back up to the Youtube clip filmed and uploaded of the police crisis actors.

When asked by a BBC journalist how many victims there were, a senior Metropolitan police officer on the scene, said that he had not been told.

This was some three hours after the attack and; at this point, no deaths (other than those of the attackers), had been reported or confirmed.

We now know that the explosive canisters shown in the photo taken by Sciotto, strapped to two of the dead attackers have been confirmed as fake.

Screen Shot 2017-06-04 at 22.01.50.png

The Independent newspaper has also reported that a member of the public was fleeing the scene with a glass of beer in hand.

The following morning, authorities reported a total of seven deaths, including the three attackers.

If indeed this latest attack was neither a hoax nor a false flag, then the authorities, including Theresa May’s government, have some big explaining to do to the public.

Afterall, Theresa May was Home Secretary prior to becoming Prime Minister and has had seven years to tighten and increase surveillance of terrorist suspects.

Since the attack, however, Theresa May has chosen this attack to call for a new plan to counter extremism and terrorism; including unprecedented and unwarranted access to all communications on everyone’s mobile phone apps, such as Whatsapp and internet browsing history.

Trump has joined her in this call.

This is the second of two attacks in the UK in twelve years, so why does Theresa may want complete control of the internet and access to all our data now?

Interestingly, Theresa May, until the eve of this attack, was three points behind in the election polls – and again, within hours of the attack – Jeremy Corbyn was being attacked by politicians and under fire from the media for simply supporting peace with the IRA.

On the BBC’s Question Time programme two nights before the London attack, two of the audience were later discovered to be Tory plants, whose purpose on the programme was to smear and humiliate Corbyn. One of whom, pretended to be a poor student, who was in fact extremely wealthy and wearing a Ralph Lauren jumper on the programme.

Whether this latest attack is just a timely opportunity, or it was indeed pre-planned and the government and security services were aware and party to it – always remember, there is no such thing as coincidence – as desperate times always call for desperate measures.

Did Theresa May allow the London attack to happen, or were the authorities completely clueless and incompetent in gathering or acting on intelligence about this attack?

The fact remains, that Theresa May told the press in an interview four days before the attack, that security services were aware of another imminent attack, which begs the question: why reduce the threat level from critical to severe and not arrest the suspects before the act?

Only this evening, the authorities have announced that they know the names of the now dead suspects, but refuse to release further details at this time.

The evidence is here before you, so seek it out, digest it, and make up your own decision or choose to believe what they tell you and want you to believe.

Stay woke, or be one of the sheep!

UK Foreign Policy: Lessons From Libya, Illegal Wars, Profit, and the Refugee Crisis

6 Jan

Boat Refugees.jpg

I made the following comments on another platform, after reading ‘Libya: Examination of intervention and Collapse and the UK’s Future Policy Options’; a report published by the House of Commons FCO Committee on the 06 September, 2016.

My comments are based on snippets of text, taken directly from the report, as observed by the Committee, or evidence and opinion given, by experts and Members of Parliament to the Committee.

The report states that the UK government spent in excess of £320m on bombing Libya, but only £25m on reconstruction programmes… most of which, went to foreign companies in the plundering of its natural wealth and subsequent reconstruction.

Dr. Liam Fox, MP, and former Defence Secretary, by his omission to answer (before committee) point 3, of the ‘Failure Strategy’, admitted destabilising Libya was an ‘engineered’ outcome, by various Western governments, including the UK.

(Note: this is the very same Liam Fox, who has consistently voted against Human Rights; strongly supported the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as being forced to repay approximately £40,000 in wrongfully claimed parliamentary expenses of taxpayers money. He has previously stated, “Israel’s enemies are our enemies and this is a battle in which we all stand together or we will all fall divided”).

Before the UK and coalition invasion, Libya had some £30bn in unused weapons; which, after Western efforts to oust Gaddafi, ‘fell’ into hands of militias, including Boko Haram.

As a direct consequence of the invasion, the UK government and its international partners, created the possibility for increased migration of refugees from Libya and surrounding countries in Western-caused conflict, poverty and displacement.

This is documented as fact in both the report and many other reports by world governments and international NGOs.

Yes, it is entirely true; our governments created the migrant and refugee crisis in Europe.
Now we have Baroness Anelay, former Minister of State in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office – who, for the record, has a relatively untarnished record – told the committee, that the UK did not support sea rescue missions of migrants, because of ‘pull factor.’

Translation: They can drown, because if we let more of them come, they will keep coming!

(No mention or acknowledgement that we allowed our governments to create this situation).

 

Here’s what Baroness Anelay meant by not wishing to support sea rescues:

British warship sent to Libya to target people-smugglers: Deployment of HMS Diamond part of EU crackdown, as… http://bit.ly/2bMRww8

 

Here’s Dr. Liam Fox, MP, giving evidence (and telling outright LIES) to the Committee: http://parliamentlive.tv/Event/Index/5c9e78c8-5c3f-4511-ab58-e9b068d6906a

 

And here’s Cameron congratulating the Libyan people (and himself) in the overthrow of the government: https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/777780997987393536/pu/vid/1280×720/QuLVu-9z6esf3EFY.mp4

 

Hold on!

Now we have Cameron suggesting the UK’s involvement would ‘stabilise’ Libya: https://archive.fo/bC3DR

 

For the record, and so that you are in no doubt, in 2014, the UK Parliament voted against Syria. Cameron ignored the vote and misused the royal prerogative, without any consultation of parliament to send UK troops to provide what he later described – but only after he was found out, that is – ‘logistical support’ for the Americans.

Cameron was found out in early 2015 and wriggled out of it by saying that there were no boots on the ground, so, technically, he hadn’t broken parliamentary rules.

Yeah, right!

In come his cronies, to grease the wheels of and start the propaganda machine to work in order to engineer ‘boots on the ground’ via a second vote.

Yes, it worked… Cameron spun it and got the second vote to invade Syria!

Only recently I read in the Guardian, that a Syrian activist has had her passport withdrawn (by UK authorities) at the request of Assad’s government; and yet, we (the UK) are supposed to be at war with Assad.

As with Syria, the UK and other Western governments, including France and the US, wanted regime change in Libya, just like Afghanistan and Iraq.

The result?

Engineered turmoil, people displacement, sectarianism, poverty, inequality, destruction of infrastructure, mass murder, and the EU’s current migrant crisis!

Why, you may ask?

The answer is always the same: power, profit, and control!

Syria and Libya are your legacy, David Cameron.

Like Blair in Iraq and Afghanistan; you should be sent to the international criminal courts, for war crimes and crimes against humanity!

And now, the same Western governments, are playing the blame game with Russia and Assad, whilst people are bombed out of their homes, to death, or to flood European borders.

The struggle for world peace and the security of the Middle East is far from over; it is part of a wider plan!

 Open your eyes!
