Rothschild Zionist and War Criminal Tony Blair attacks Islam as ‘fundamentally extremist’ religion

 

‘In an interview with the BBC, Tony Blair lashed out at opposition Labour Party chief Ed Miliband for opposing the coalition government’s push for launching an invasion against Syria, moaning that the country “could become a potent source of extremists”.

The former head of the Labour party, who engineered the March 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq together with former U.S. president George W. Bush on the pretext of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs), acknowledged that the true reason western warmongers are spearheading wars in the Middle East region was fighting Islam.

There is a “fundamental battle about religion and politics within Islam, which has vast consequences for our future security”, Tony Blair claimed.’

US and Israel Make Final Preparations for Wider War, Evacuate US Embassy in Lebanon

‘Considering Israel’s joint operating status with US military assets in the region and its horrible record of violating air space and bombing its neighbors – including Lebanon in 2006, it’s no surprise that the US State Department has suddenly ordered all “non-emergency personnel” and their family members to leave the U.S. Embassy in Beirut today, and has warned all Americans to avoid travel to Lebanon due to an undisclosed “threat” to the diplomatic mission in that country. A similar operation is also underway regarding U.S. citizens in Turkey including a draw-down of staff at the U.S. Consulate General in Adana, Turkey.

21st Century Wire believes that the US is evacuating its staff in preparation for a planned Israeli military airstrike against Lebanon, which Israel will justify via its desire to take out a series of Hezbollah “terrorist targets” inside Lebanon, including bombing targets in urban areas like south Beirut. This suspicion is evidenced by the US State Department actually naming Hezbollah, and general “anti-Western terrorist activity” in the statement.’

Israel, Palestinians ‘remain steadfast’ on peace talks, says Kerry

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry answers a question during a news conference with Qatar Foreign Minister Khalid Al Attiya (R) at the United States Embassy in Paris, September 8, 2013.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was to meet Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas in London on Sunday, having earlier insisted that Israelis and Palestinians were determined to pursue direct peace talks.

Kerry and Abbas, who have met regularly over the last six months, were to kick off their latest talks at 7:30 pm (2030 GMT), according to the US State Department, but no details were due to be released to the press.

The United States’ top diplomat arrived in London late afternoon following a stop-off in Paris, which was dominated by the ongoing crisis in Syria and the proposed US-Franco military response.

But Kerry also tackled the Israeli-Palestinian peace process with his Egyptian, Qatari and Saudi counterparts along with representatives from the Arab League.

“Despite tough decisions that have to be made and despite pressure that exists on both sides… both the Palestinians and Israelis have remained steadfast in their commitment to continuing the talks,” Kerry said in Paris after a meeting with Arab League officials.

Kerry also said he planned to meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “shortly” to discuss peace efforts.

Enhancing regional stability

In regards to the talks with Arab League officials, Kerry said: “We all of us agreed that a final status agreement is important in enhancing regional security and stability throughout the Middle East.”

Qatari Foreign Minister Khaled al-Attiyah however criticized Israel for continuing to build Jewish settlements, saying it was damaging peace efforts.

“We are talking about the settlements, what we noticed is that each time a round of negotiations is to start it’s preceded by an announcement of settlements,” he said.

This “directly affects the negotiations,” Attiyah said.

Direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians resumed on July 29, after Kerry shuttled between Jerusalem, the West Bank and Amman for several months seeking to end a three-year stalemate in the negotiations.

The two sides have since met three times in August and in early September in Jerusalem.

In line with Kerry’s desire to keep the details of the negotiations secret in order to give the process a chance to work, little has leaked about the talks.

Ahead of the first bilateral meetings in Jerusalem on August 14, Israel announced plans to build more than 2,000 Jewish settler homes on Palestinian territory, in a move that angered Palestinian negotiators.

Kerry also urged the European Union to suspend new guidelines introduced in July forbidding its 28 member states from dealing with or funding any Israeli “entities” in the occupied Palestinian territories, including the West Bank and east Jerusalem.

Netanyahu said last month that the EU’s stance was hampering peace talks by hardening Palestinian positions.

“I did ask the European community if they would consider a suspension,” Kerry said. “It’s not asking them to change the policy, it’s asking them to suspend or delay its implementation while these talks are taking place.”

IOF soldiers burn down ancient olive trees, break gate of monastery

 

 

BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) burned down a number of olive trees, some of which are one thousand years old, and broke the gate of a monastery south of Bethlehem on Saturday evening.

Ahmed Salah, the coordinator of anti-wall and settlement committees in Al-Khader village, said that IOF soldiers fired teargas and stun grenades at areas belonging to the Mar Jeriess monastery in the Old City of Al-Khader.

The resultant fire burned down ancient olive trees, Salah said, adding that the soldiers attacked the monastery and destroyed its main gate. He said that the soldiers warned against rebuilding the gate.

10 Chemical Weapons Attacks Washington Doesn’t Want You to Talk About

Washington doesn’t merely lack the legal authority for a military intervention in Syria. It lacks the moral authority. We’re talking about a government with a history of using chemical weapons against innocent people far more prolific and deadly than the mere accusations Assad faces from a trigger-happy Western military-industrial complex, bent on stifling further investigation before striking.

Here is a list of 10 chemical weapons attacks carried out by the U.S. government or its allies against civilians.

1. The U.S. Military Dumped 20 Million Gallons of Chemicals on Vietnam from 1962 – 1971

During the Vietnam War, the U.S. military sprayed 20 million gallons of chemicals, including the very toxic Agent Orange, on the forests and farmlands of Vietnam and neighboring countries, deliberately destroying food supplies, shattering the jungle ecology, and ravaging the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Vietnam estimates that as a result of the decade-long chemical attack, 400,000 people were killed or maimed, 500,000 babies have been born with birth defects, and 2 million have suffered from cancer or other illnesses. In 2012, the Red Crossestimated that one million people in Vietnam have disabilities or health problems related to Agent Orange.

2. Israel Attacked Palestinian Civilians with White Phosphorus in 2008 – 2009

White phosphorus is a horrific incendiary chemical weapon that melts human flesh right down to the bone.

In 2009, multiple human rights groups, including Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and International Red Cross reported that the Israeli government was attacking civilians in their own country with chemical weapons. An Amnesty International team claimed to find “indisputable evidence of the widespread use of white phosphorus” as a weapon in densely-populated civilian areas. The Israeli military denied the allegations at first, but eventually admitted they were true.

After the string of allegations by these NGOs, the Israeli military even hit a UN headquarters(!) in Gaza with a chemical attack. How do you think all this evidence compares to the case against Syria? Why didn’t Obama try to bomb Israel?

3. Washington Attacked Iraqi Civilians with White Phosphorus in 2004

In 2004, journalists embedded with the U.S. military in Iraq began reporting the use of white phosphorus in Fallujah against Iraqi insurgents. First the military lied and said that it was only using white phosphorus to create smokescreens or illuminate targets. Then it admitted to using the volatile chemical as an incendiary weapon. At the time, Italian television broadcaster RAI aired a documentary entitled, “Fallujah, The Hidden Massacre,” including grim video footage and photographs, as well as eyewitness interviews with Fallujah residents and U.S. soldiers revealing how the U.S. government indiscriminately rained white chemical fire down on the Iraqi city and melted women and children to death.

4. The CIA Helped Saddam Hussein Massacre Iranians and Kurds with Chemical Weapons in 1988
10, chemical, weapons, attacks, washington, doesnt, want, you, to, talk, about,

CIA records now prove that Washington knew Saddam Hussein was using chemical weapons (including sarin, nerve gas, and mustard gas) in the Iran-Iraq War, yet continued to pour intelligence into the hands of the Iraqi military, informing Hussein of Iranian troop movements while knowing that he would be using the information to launch chemical attacks. At one point in early 1988, Washington warned Hussein of an Iranian troop movement that would have ended the war in a decisive defeat for the Iraqi government. By March an emboldened Hussein with new friends in Washington struck a Kurdish village occupied by Iranian troops with multiple chemical agents, killing as many as 5,000 people and injuring as many as 10,000 more, most of them civilians. Thousands more died in the following years from complications, diseases, and birth defects.

5. The Army Tested Chemicals on Residents of Poor, Black St. Louis Neighborhoods in The 1950s
10, chemical, weapons, attacks, washington, doesnt, want, you, to, talk, about,

In the early 1950s, the Army set up motorized blowers on top of residential high-rises in low-income, mostly black St. Louis neighborhoods, including areas where as much as 70% of the residents were children under 12. The government told residents that it was experimenting with a smokescreen to protect the city from Russian attacks, but it was actually pumping the air full of hundreds of pounds of finely powdered zinc cadmium sulfide. The government admits that there was a second ingredient in the chemical powder, but whether or not that ingredient was radioactive remains classified. Of course it does. Since the tests, an alarming number of the area’s residents have developed cancer. In 1955, Doris Spates was born in one of the buildings the Army used to fill the air with chemicals from 1953 – 1954. Her father died inexplicably that same year, she has seen four siblings die from cancer, and Doris herself is a survivor of cervical cancer.

6. Police Fired Tear Gas at Occupy Protesters in 2011
10, chemical, weapons, attacks, washington, doesnt, want, you, to, talk, about,

The savage violence of the police against Occupy protesters in 2011 was well documented, andincluded the use of tear gas and other chemical irritants. Tear gas is prohibited for use against enemy soldiers in battle by the Chemical Weapons Convention. Can’t police give civilian protesters in Oakland, California the same courtesy and protection that international law requires for enemy soldiers on a battlefield?

7. The FBI Attacked Men, Women, and Children With Tear Gas in Waco in 1993
10, chemical, weapons, attacks, washington, doesnt, want, you, to, talk, about,

At the infamous Waco siege of a peaceful community of Seventh Day Adventists, the FBI pumped tear gas into buildings knowing that women, children, and babies were inside. The tear gas was highly flammable and ignited, engulfing the buildings in flames and killing 49 men and women, and 27 children, including babies and toddlers. Remember, attacking an armed enemy soldier on a battlefield with tear gas is a war crime. What kind of crime is attacking a baby with tear gas?

8. The U.S. Military Littered Iraq with Toxic Depleted Uranium in 2003

In Iraq, the U.S. military has littered the environment with thousands of tons of munitions made from depleted uranium, a toxic and radioactive nuclear waste product. As a result, more than half of babies born in Fallujah from 2007 – 2010 were born with birth defects. Some of these defects have never been seen before outside of textbooks with photos of babies born near nuclear tests in the Pacific. Cancer and infant mortality have also seen a dramatic rise in Iraq. According to Christopher Busby, the Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, “These are weapons which have absolutely destroyed the genetic integrity of the population of Iraq.” After authoring two of four reports published in 2012 on the health crisis in Iraq, Busby described Fallujah as having, “the highest rate of genetic damage in any population ever studied.”

9. The U.S. Military Killed Hundreds of Thousands of Japanese Civilians with Napalm from 1944 – 1945
10, chemical, weapons, attacks, washington, doesnt, want, you, to, talk, about,

Napalm is a sticky and highly flammable gel which has been used as a weapon of terror by the U.S. military. In 1980, the UN declared the use of napalm on swaths of civilian population a war crime. That’s exactly what the U.S. military did in World War II, dropping enough napalm in one bombing raid on Tokyo to burn 100,000 people to death, injure a million more, and leave a million without homes in the single deadliest air raid of World War II.

10. The U.S. Government Dropped Nuclear Bombs on Two Japanese Cities in 1945
10, chemical, weapons, attacks, washington, doesnt, want, you, to, talk, about,

Although nuclear bombs may not be considered chemical weapons, I believe we can agree they belong to the same category. They certainly disperse an awful lot of deadly radioactive chemicals. They are every bit as horrifying as chemical weapons if not more, and by their very nature, suitable for only one purpose: wiping out an entire city full of civilians. It seems odd that the only regime to ever use one of these weapons of terror on other human beings has busied itself with the pretense of keeping the world safe from dangerous weapons in the hands of dangerous governments.

Israeli forces detain dozens in Hebron camp

HEBRON (Ma’an) — Israeli forces detained over 30 Palestinians in a refugee camp near Hebron early Saturday after a firebomb was hurled at a military tower.

Israeli forces escorted dozens of young men and children from the al-Arrub camp in the raid, local popular committee spokesman Ahmad Abu Khayran said.

“We still don’t know the exact number of detainees, because from time to time the Israeli forces release a few of those detained since dawn,” Abu Khayran told Ma’an.

Earlier, a firebomb was thrown at a military tower near the camp in the southern West Bank, setting it on fire.

Witnesses said Israeli soldiers ransacked dozens of homes, breaking doors and beating residents before taking dozens of handcuffed men and children out of the camp.

An Israeli military spokesman said soldiers and border police searched the area for suspects following the firebombing, “encountering heavy rock hurling.”

They detained 32 suspects at the scene, who were later released, the army spokesman told Ma’an.

Three Palestinians were arrested and transferred to Israeli police custody for questioning, he added.

Locals confirmed to Ma’an that all detainees were released, except for three who they identified as Muhammad Abu Afifeh, Muhammad Jawabra and Khalid Jawabra.

Israeli Soldiers Spread Terror in Refugee Camp

HEBRON, September 7, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli soldiers raided early Saturday Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, and spread terror in the camp when they ordered hundreds of people out of their homes and kept them out for several hours, according to local and security sources.

The soldiers broke into homes shortly after midnight, forced people to go outdoors while they searched homes destroying furniture and trashing personal belongings in the process.

The residents ordered to stay at the entrance of the camp until around five in the morning before they were allowed to return to their damaged homes, Abdul Lafit Abu Safieh, director of the camp, told WAFA.

He said the soldiers also threw tear gas grenades and stun bombs at the homes as they were leaving the camp.

No one was reportedly arrested in this campaign, whose reasons were not known.

Eyewitnesses said that undercover soldiers of the Israeli military infiltrated into the yards of the mosque through the Al-Magharaba Gate, and surrounded the worshipers in the Al-Qibly Mosque by placing iron barriers around it.

A number of youths hurled stones at the invading soldiers, and the army fired gas bombs and rubber-coated metal bullets, and sprayed some worshipers with pepper-spray.

The soldiers also forced local reporters out of the mosque area, and prevented them from documenting the attack. Several journalists were also forced out.

Medical sources said that dozens have been treated for the effects of teargas inhalation, while others suffered cuts and bruises after being hit by rubber-coated metal bullets; all were moved to local clinics and hospitals.

The sources said that at least fifty Palestinians were injured in the attack; 20 were shot by rubber-coated metal bullets, and at least thirty have been treated for the effects of teargas inhalation.

Israeli Spy in UAE Does Israels Dirty Work in Gaza

 

مطرود فلسطيني وعميل صهيوني – يعمل مستشارا في دولة خليجية متورط في أحداث سيناء

وتؤكد تقارير سابقة أن دحلان القيادي السابق في حركة فتح، والذي كان مسؤولاً أمنياً كبيراً في السلطة الفلسطينية هو الذي يقف وراء عدد من عمليات التخريب واستهداف الجيش والشرطة المصرية في سيناء بالقرب من قطاع غزة، وذلك بالتنسيق مع جهات داخل مصر، وبهدف التحريض على حركة حماس والتمهيد لتوجيه ضربة لها . البقية … أنقر هنا

Mohammad Dahlan“Expel Muhammad Dahlan From the Emirates!” is a campaign slogan launched by Emirates which has been widely spread across social networks such as Twitter, to express the rejection by a wide range of people of the presence of Mohammad Dahlan in Abu Dhabi, and his work as an adviser to the Emir Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.

Dahlan is a traitor and dismissed leader from Fatah, founder of a death squad in the Gaza Strip which operated until 2006, and a spy for Israel.

The Emiratis say: “Dahlan betrayed the Palestinian cause and nation in favor of Israel, so how do the UAE authorities accept this Israel-first agent to stay on its territory?”.

They add: “The filth of Dahlan began to be apparent in the Emirates after he succeeded in influencing people in the UAE government with his misleading thoughts, what caused the UAE government to start supporting criminals and traitors from all Arab countries, people who kill their own nations in support to the zionist project, and giving them refuge in the Emirates.”

The Emiratis accuse Dahlan of financing terrorism in the Sinai within the framework of a plan which distorts Islam and helps create ill will and conflict between Egypt and the Gaza Strip, which is under Hamas rule, the enemies of Dahlan.

An earlier reports was released which states that Dahlan, the traitor, stands behind a number of terrorist and sabotage operations which have targeted the Egyptian army in the Sinai near the Gaza Strip, in coordination with the Egyptian police and in favour of Israel. Dahlan and his partners in the Egyptian police are planning to strike Gaza and crush Hamas so that ultimately Dahlan, Abbas, PA will be able to take control over the strip.

Egyptian forces have tightened the control of Rafah, a town that straddles the Egypt-Gaza border, as well as the waters at the border to prevent any transport of merchandise into Gaza by sea. They expelled dozens of families from their houses on the Egyptian side near the Rafah border in the context of the implementation of an empty zone along the border with Gaza. Egyptian official said that they had destroyed over 350 smuggling tunnels since the army had deposed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in early July of this year.

Supporting al-Qaeda a Week Before 9/11

In a twist of irony that has escaped mainstream commentators, one week away from 9/11, the US is considering a course of action that will empower al-Qaeda; i.e., bombing Syria. As terror expert Evan Kohlmannput it, “two of the most powerful insurgent factions in Syria are al-Qaeda factions.” (Kohlmann is an authority on the topic, having worked as a consultant in terrorism matters for the DoD, DOJ, FBI, and other law enforcement agencies.) These rebel factions will be the immediate beneficiaries of a strike against the Assad regime.

This wouldn’t be the first time that the intelligence community expected a US military operation to increase the likelihood of terror attacks against the US. As a letter from CIA Director George Tenet to the Senate Intelligence Committee chair revealed, it was anticipated that Bush’s invasion of Iraq would lead Saddam Hussein to be “much less constrained in adopting terrorist actions”; moreover, the invasion of Iraq was expected to raise the threat of attack by WMD from “low” to “pretty high”. And the intelligent experts were correct. Earlier this year, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told the FBI that he and his brother carried out the Boston Marathon bombing because they “were angry about the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq”.

We can only hope the intelligence experts like Evan Kohlmann won’t be correct this time around.

If we had an authentic democracy—rule by the people—an attack wouldn’t happen, because strong majorities oppose intervening in Syria. Polls conducted by Reuters almost daily between May 31st and September 3rd indicate without exception that a strong majority of Americans are opposed to intervening in Syria—even if Syria used chemical weapons. Similarly, a poll conducted by the BBC shows that, in the UK, “71% of people thought Parliament made the right decision” to reject military action against Syria. Two thirds of respondents said they wouldn’t care if Parliament’s decision harmed UK-US relations.

Another poll shows that a stunning 80% of Americans believe that Obama should seek congressional approval for a strike on Syria. The Obama administration has interpreted this rather narrowly, having scheduled a congressional vote, but still insisting that Obama “has the right to [attack Syria] no matter what Congress does”, as Secretary of State John Kerry remarked. Obama said the same thing, albeit somewhat more tactfully: “I believe I have the authority to carry out this military action without specific congressional authorization”.

The polls pertaining to the prospective strike on Syria differ significantly from those regarding the US and UK support for the Iraq War. Back in 2003, a series of polls found that a majority of Britons supported the invasion of Iraq; Americans at the time supported the invasions by evenlarger majorities.

Simply put, there’s less support for a strike on Syria than there was for the invasion of Iraq—and we know how well the Iraq War turned out.

Yet public opinion and the threat of provoking terror attacks are not persuasive to the unfathomable wisdom of the Obama administration. As John Kerry said, a strike on Syria “is of great consequence to…all of us who care about enforcing the international norm with respect to chemical weapons.” Apparently Kerry is more concerned with international norms than international law, since attacking Syria without a U.N. Security Council resolution would violate the latter. In Obama’s words, the Security Council is “paralyzed”—which, by definition, means it won’t do what he tells it to do.

Matthew Waxman, writing for the Council on Foreign Relations—hardly a radical outfit—observes that, “despite treaties outlawing chemical weapons use, there is no precedent for using military intervention as a response to violations.”

To be fair to the Obama administration, we should listen to what US leaders have to say about chemical weapons; they’re experts on the matter. In Iraq alone, they used white phosphorous and depleted uranium munitions, which coincided with an explosion of birth defectsthroughout Iraq that “surpassed those of Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the nuclear attacks at the end of WWII”.
