This confusing business of spreading institutional propaganda?

Western media in the “confused business”: Writing Iran when meaning Saudi Kingdom?

Mind you that this article was posted in 2012

The Olympic game charter prohibits States to discriminate between genders  in at least two clauses. And yet, Saudi Arabia will not let women participate in sports, while Iran do send sport-women to games…

Suppose Iran was discriminating, wouldn’t international outcry be deafening us? But nobody is willing to make waves when Saudi Arabia is the culprit…

Saudi Arabia Wahhabi, theocratic and absolute monarchic State has executed 76 people in 2011, such as women condemned for witchcraft, non-noble class homosexuals, sodomizers, adulterous women, drug traffickers, apostasy…and cutting hands of robbers…But the UN is not interested in what’s going on in Saudi Arabia.

Except the UN High Commissariat for human rights, no international institutions bring up these violations in Saudi Kingdom…

Neither the UN Council, nor the G20 (that met this year in the Kingdom), nor the International Monetary Fund (IMF)…care of what’s going on in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Kingdom is practically untouched and never blamed (the same as this colonial apartheid implant of Israel)…

For example, in 2008, French Sarkozy declared: “Under the vigorous impulse of his Majesty Abdullah, Saudi Arabia is developing a civilized policy…” (Coming from Sarkozy under justice investigation in France and the instigator of the civil war in Libya)

Saudi Arabia impulse is still in funding and supporting the most obscurantist Islamic extremists in Tunisia, Morocco, Mauritania, Algeria, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Mali…

They are funding TV cables channels dedicated to Islamic salafism, erecting Mosques in every street, sending free million of Korans (Wahhabi version), and million of books on “How to subjugate wives and daughters in obeying patriarchal systems…”

Saudi Arabia is lethally crushing youth demonstrations under the banner of “New form of terrorism”, killing peaceful Shia demonstrators in the Eastern region, jailing over 20,000 each year for freedom of expression charges, and has sent military reinforcement into Bahrain to crush the civil uprising, and is supporting the Al Qaeda in Yemen and Somalia…

The irony is that Saudi Arabia is the refuge for all dictators, Tunisia Ben Ali, Egypt, Uganda Idi Amin, many African dictators… And current Tunisia Hamadi Jebali PM visited Saudi Arabia and lauded the good deeds of this archaic monarchy, and refrained from demanding the extradition of Tunisia dictator, or the return of the stolen billion…

Saudi Kingdom would want everyone to believe that the main nemesis is Shia Iran, as Israel would want everyone to believe this strategy…

As  if peaceful nuclear energy program is the enemy to human rights, democracy, freedom of expression…

And it is the Iranian people who are to suffer from economic and financial sanctions, while Saudi Arabia fund and sustain terrorism everywhere in Islamic States

Western media are persisting in the “confused business” of not politically discussing the current US policies in the Arab World: Are they Writing Iran when meaning Saudi Arabia?

The big picture can be described as follows:

1. China keeps the US economy afloat with “fresh money” in buying government bonds

2. Saudi Kingdom keeps the US Federal budget afloat by cyclically infusing funds, particularly in crisis situations such as preemptive military operations, changing “rogue” regimes, enforcing oil embargoes…(And lately, succumbing to Trump blackmails to eliminate hundreds of $billion loans and buying useless weapons Not under the control of the Kingdom military…)

3. The US cyclically rectifies Israel endemic budget deficits, using Saudi Kingdom largess. Can’t we claim that Saudi Arabia is the main funder of the theocratic and apartheid Zionist State?

Is the US cowing to Saudi Arabia strategy of reducing all States in the Middle-East to theocratic Sunni Wahhabi salafism and archaic regimes and encouraging Israel to be a carbon copy of the surrounding States?

Note: Since 2012, Qatar, Bahrain and Gulf Emirates have shared in US order to fund the terrorist movements participating in Syria “civil war”, destabilizing Tunisia, Algeria, Iraq, Somalia, and many African States.

Western colonial powers to dig into its “reserves” of sovereign funds

Implicit sovereign funds of centuries of looted wealth from their colonies

Covid-19 pandemics has forced the colonial powers to start printing currencies in order to cover for the “expenses” of focusing on their crumbling health institutions and lack of the necessary health human services.

They are printing money in the $ trillion, money Not covered my any incoming foreign currencies or export or expanding internal economy.

Fending off mass revolts of serious decrease in standard of living is the price for the creation of inflation at long period. 

A quick overview that condenses the main phases of western colonial powers wealth accumulation.

1) Slave trades:

After Constantinople fell in 1443 into the hands of the Ottoman Empire, all the slave routes from central and eastern Europe stopped. The Europeans colonial powers had to seek slaves from Africa, indirectly from Cairo, Tunisia, Algeria and directly by their own ships.

One third of the slaves died in the crossing of the African desert and as many in the crossing of the oceans.

All the universities and facilities and fancy buildings and institutions were the result of slave trading. And the symbols are falling and the universities are starting to redirect funds for the inclusion of “minorities” into their programs.

Actually, the American colonies revolted against England because the British Empire made it illegal to “import slaves”. Implicitly, England didn’t stop trading slaves but this law was a sword to harass the rich colons who were expanding their business and Not paying enough taxes.

2) First industrial revolution and child labor.

In order to export products to the colonies at exorbitant “added values”, the colonial powers in mainly England and France put children and women to work in sweatshop factories and in the mines.

Generations of youth were lost in shortened life expectancy, uneducated, and a life of miseries and indignities.

These generations were sacrificed simply because the people in the colonies were Not to learn any skills in production or transforming their raw materials into even semi-finished products.

3) Second industrial revolution and mass infrastructure and transport within their countries and in the colonies in order to quicken the exploitation of the raw materials in their colonies and fast transport of moving of their troops.

4) From 1950 to 1980, China experienced 30 years of internal instability, famine and inequities. Millions of Chinese barely survived the many dogmatic pronouncement of Mao that reduced this Nation into stagnation at all level: economically, financially, education, culture…

Millions starved, were dispatched into far away villages and camps, and forgotten there. China just lived in the memory of faked propaganda as the leading fair and equitable communist nation. The western colonial powers had a field day of Not encountering any serious economic competitor.

5) The fall of Berlin Wall and invasion of financial multinationals of world markets.

The US lead the way in concretizing the notion of “World Free Market” by forcing the acceptance of their financial multinationals in the economy and finance and production in the foreign countries.

Financial crisis followed crisis and many countries suffered the movements of faked and fictitious trillion of dollars circulating around the globe, with no fundamental coverage in Gold or real material production.

And what now?

China is in the forefront at all levels.

And still China is the leading country in sweatshop factories, displacing millions to countryside whenever a giga project is underway, and many millions are barely surviving.

Yes, still generation of Chinese are still being sacrificed in order to supply this God of Export, as many generations of the poorer classes in Europe and USA were sacrificed a centuries ago.

And what now?

China is back to re-creating the Silk Road, inland and by sea and is the second most powerful economic power, and by far the the leading creditor nation, if Not the only real creditor nation with $ trillions to spare and buy foreign bonds.

Fact is, almost all States are debtor States, even Japan is the second debt nation after the USA.

Only China and a few of Northern European States (Scandinavian States of Norway, Sweden, Danmark, Holland, Finland…) have “sovereign funds” to rely on in time of major financial crisis.

The colonial powers have to dig into its “reserves” of sovereign funds of centuries of looted wealth in order to fend off mass revolts of serious decrease in standard of living

Note: When all the US liabilities are accounted for, US national debt amount to $135 trillion, Not the official $26 trillion. In this Covid-19 pandemics, the US printed (balance sheet) over $10 trillion. Mind you that during the financial crisis  of 2007, US printed less than one trillion.

No country ever was paid on the principal for US bond purchases. Trump financial blackmail of Saudi Kingdom was of two kinds: Fresh money on useless weapon, and slashing a large portion of Saudi principal, thus reducing the interest to be redeemed.

A Saudi Kingdom refugee in France (Saad Hariri) re-landed in Lebanon after being ousted in 2011 as PM

Actually Saad was handed the post of political inheritor (Haririyyeh) of his father Rafic Hariri who was assassinated by USA/Israel in 2004, by Bandar bin Sultan.

Note: re-edited of the post of 2014. “A billionaire refugee in France…”

Officially, the one $billion that the Saudi monarch Abdullah extended to Lebanon was meant to be spent on aiding the Lebanese army to confront all the “terrorists activities” spreading in Lebanon.

Tacitly, ex PM Saad Hariri is to be the money distributor of this huge sum and he returned to Lebanon after 3 years of vacations (as he was ousted) in order to personally supervise the spending of the money.

All this money is basically meant to be spend on the election campaign since the Parliament feels too ashamed to extend its tenure again and again on flimsy excuses of “insecurity conditions”. (Yes, Nabih Berry, head of the Parliament for 22 successive years,  and the Godfather of the militia/mafia “leaders“, refused to hold Parliamentary elections)

He had no political experience and knew nothing of Lebanon social structure: He needed 6 months to learn how to form a government and he spent most of his tenure abroad on multiple vacations, doing personal business deals.

A few months ago, Saudi Kingdom extended 3 $billion to France on the ground of providing the Lebanese army the necessary weapons to confront terrorist factions and the capability to maintain security and the shaky status quo of Lebanon political outdated system.

So far, the 3 $billion have evaporated into deep pockets in both Lebanon and France: financial transparency is not a cornerstone in our system.

Probably, France extended part of that that money to the extremist jihadist factions on our border with Syria.

The Nusra and ISIS have occupied our sprawling town of Ersal for 5 days and committed atrocities and killed scores of our soldiers and kidnapped about 40 soldiers.

Rafic Hariri set up the Ponzi scheme for Lebanon since 1994 by continually borrowing money, accumulating Lebanon sovereign debt from $3 bn to $100 bn and doing his best of destroying any productive activities in industries and agriculture. The basis of Rafic reasoning is that USA will erase Lebanon debt as soon as Lebanon sign a “peace treaty” with Israel.

Mon Opinion

La période que traverse actuellement le Liban est extrêmement brumeuse, et de plus en plus illisible. Laissons nos religions aux vestiaires et réfléchissons.

Qu’avons nous comme données récentes ? Trois milliards Saoudiens évaporés? (Aide à l’armée?)

Hariri qui est rentré sous les caméras au Liban. Avec dans ses valises un milliard … Pour ? Tripoli qui s’agite à nouveau?
Ersaal avec ses vrais martyrs de notre armée Libanaise?

Et ses assaillants salafistes qui trouvent malgré tout des Janus parmi la classe politique libanaise pour minimiser, diluer, et démentir s’ils pouvaient ; nos martyrs.

Il se prépare quelque chose d’extrêmement grave je pense taillé à la seule mesure de la survie de l’état d’Israël.

Israel est plus que jamais conscient du droit du peuple Palestinien à son Etat, appuyé en cela par les rues arabes.

Israel est conscient de l’hostilité croissante des peuples des pays limitrophes face à l’injustice dont il fait preuve surtout avec un Embargo sévère et mortifère contre Gaza, et le morcellement incessant de la Palestine par les implantations juives victimes d’une Shoa économique générée par la crise dans laquelle se débattent leurs pays d’origine ( crise qui ne touche pas que les juifs , sauf que israel se propose comme issue en agitant l’étendard de l’anti sémitisme ambiant)

Rajouter à cela que de gisements immenses de gaz et de pétrole son découverts aux larges du Liban et de Palestine

Le Liban entre désormais dans le club des pays frappés par la malédiction du sous-sol. (Huge reserves of gas and oil known and confirmed even during the French mandated colonial power in 1935) 

Un exemple : l’Algérie a un sous sol infiniment riche , la Tunisie pas . Cette dernière connaitra rapidement accalmie et prospérité, la première se débattra toujours.

D’un point de vue purement sécuritaire, Israel a été contraint de rendre le Liban sud a ses Libanais (et sans condition en May 25, 2000) malgré son eau dont il a besoin. ( le prix devenait prohibitif pour israel. Trop de morts , vu le virus Ezbolla (Hezbollah) qui y sévissait)

L’Irak, La Lybie, La Syrie , étaient des menaces sécuritaires pour israel. Ces pays ont été scientifiquement et méthodiquement mis à terre en 3 temps chacun ( observez les 3 temps d’un dromadaire quand il veut se mettre à terre ) sans pour autant cesser de tambouriner qu’il faut que la résistance libanaise dépose ses armes.

Entretenir la faiblesse des pays arabes et les anémier pour les cent ans à venir, passera désormais d’après les stratèges du pentagone et d israel réunis par la semence d’une guerre Suchi ( Sunnites / Chiites) et elle commence à donner ses fruits mortifères. Les printemps se suivent mais ne se ressemblent pas.

Le Liban ”is different ” . Devenu très anglophone, très peu francophone, la France (sa mère adoptive ) en grande difficulté économique ne viendra plus vraiment à son secours car :

1/ Il s’est tourné vers les USA
2/ la France est un pays matérialiste, Laïc. Défendre la chrétienté, lui est vraiment passé de mode.

La guerre sunnite / chiite a déjà commencé dans la région, et je suis intimement convaincu que ces stratèges de l’apocalypse nous diront bientôt qu’il ne faut pas mettre tous les salafistes dans le même sac

Il y aura les bons salafistes: ceux qui se battront contre le Ezbollah , et les mauvais salafistes ceux qui se battront contre l’armée libanaise (sic!)

Plus que jamais au Liban, les politiciens Libanais ne commandent plus sur rien et n’ont de l’autorité que dans la mesure où ils ne l’exercent pas.

Bientôt , même une chatte au Liban, ne reconnaîtra plus ses chatons.

Ah les Chrétiens … J’allais vous oublier : je ne vous pense pas les vrais visés dans l’apocalypse annoncée, vous serez soit des victiles collatérales, soit des victiles de diversion. Dans les deux cas, vous aurez vos ” couloirs humanitaires ”

Déjà que le Liban est couloir en soi . Couloirs dans un couloir : rien de mieux pour couler notre pays.

What Baha2 Hariri, Saad Hariri’s eldest brother, confessed of the tight connections among Saudi secret services, Bandar bin Sultan and Walid Jumblat…

Do we have to emulate what the Arab Bedouin of the Arabic Peninsula did 1,400 years ago?

Islam changed many societies except the Bedouin of the “Arabic” peninsula.

Not only Islam was a means for them to expand by force and didn’t make a dent to their customs and traditions, but they want Muslims to emulate their backward mentality.

Note: I posted this article as an example of the level of frustration we have been submitted to since Saudi Kingdom disseminated Wahhabi Madrassat everywhere there are Muslims in 1985.

1400 عام…
منذ 1400 عام عاشوا في البراري …ناموا في المضارب.. اضاووا لياليهم بإشعال الزيت و الحطب …لم يعرفوا غير الرعي و السبي و الغزوات .. تيمموا بالتراب …تقاتلوا … تحاربوا ِ. تناحروا .. تزاوجوا..

منذ 1400 عام تركوا لنا قصصا و سيرا ذاتية و أحاديث و نصوصا .. قالوا إنها مقدسة ..كما قال اللذين من قبلهم …و بعد 1400 عام يتوجب علينا أن نفكر بها كما كانوا يفكرون …ان نلبس كما كانوا يلبسون … ان نعيش كما كانوا يعيشون ..ان نتقاتل كما كانوا يتقاتلون..ان نتزوج كما كانوا يتزوجون ..
1400 عام من التزوير ..و المطلوب أن نصدق كل ما وردنا …و نحن نشهد تزوير الحاضر ..

1400 عاما من التمترس خلف شخصيات و حكايات لا نعرف شيئا عن حقيقتها و يتوجب علينا أن لا نخرج من عباءاتهم..و نقتدي بهم و نمتثل لهم …ان نسير في موكب تشييعهم… ان نزور اضرحتهم حتى اليوم …
1400 عاما .. ونحن نفسر ماذا قالوا … و لماذا قالوا …و ماذا كانوا يقصدون …

1400 عاما من الصلوات و الدعاء على النصارى و اليهود ..
لتشتيت شملهم …و لم يتبق لنا شمل ..
لتدمير أوطانهم …و لم تبق لنا أوطان …
لسبي نسائهم..و لم تسبى إلا نساء المسلمين ..
1400 عام من الزكاة …و عدد الجياع و المحرومين يزداد كل يوم في بلاد المسلمين …

1400 عام من الصيام و البطون تكبر و الأوزان تزيد عند شيوخ المسلمين ..
1400 عام من رجم الشيطان …و الشيطان يتكاثر في بلاد المسلمين ..

أيتها الأمة النائمة…ان من تصلون و تدعون عليهم..وصلوا للفضاء..ناموا على سطح القمر …شطروا الذرة …جزاوا الثانية ..اخترعوا الثورة الرقمية …و أنتم لم تفلحوا إلا بثورة الأعضاء التناسلية ..و تتدارسون حتى اليوم طريقة دخول المرحاض …و ماذا يفسد الوضوء غير المرأة و الكلب الأسود..

و عندما اجتهد العلماء..توصلوا لجهاد النكاح …و سفاح القربى …و إرضاع الكبير و وداع الزوجة الميتة..

أيتها الأمة النائمة..الا يحق لعقولنا أن تتأثر بهذا الفيض من المعارف و العلوم و التكنولوجيا التي تحيط بنا …و هل يتوجب على عقولنا أن تبق رهينة منذ 1400 عام ..و تنهل من كل العلوم لطالما كانت صالحة لكل زمان و مكان…كما تدعون …و لو كانت صالحة لماذا بقينا على تخلفنا..و لماذا لم يأخذ الغرب منها …

عندما نضع الحصان لفلاحه الارض..و الحمار للسباق …
فلن نجني خيرا …..و لن نكسب الرهان …

And the colonial powers claim that the Islamic women are Not at par with bravery?

لازالت ميسون السويدان ابنة الداعية طارق السويدان تثير الجدل، خصوصا بعد آخر تغريدة لها على التويتر ” تهت في شوارع مكة أبحث عن الله.. و لم أجده في الحرم..”، حيث تم تكفيرها من قبل رواد مواقع التواصل الاجتماعي.

و أثارت تغريدتها غضب عدد كبير من المغردين الخليجيين .. فانهالوا على أبيها بالشتائم بخصوص ما قالته ابنته، و اعتبروه مسؤول على تصرفاتها.
من جهتها ردت ميسون على منتقديها عبر تغريدات في حسابها الشخصي على التويتر قائلة :

أتظنونني سأسكت عنكم ؟؟ لا و الله لن أسكت.. لم أتمسّك بديني كل هذه السنين في الغرب حتى يأتي “المسلمون” ليسلبوني إياه
لقد عدنا و الله إلى الجاهلية،أنتم تعذّبون المسلمين بالشتم حتى تخرجوهم من دينهم..و أنا والله لن أخرج من دين الله و لو كره المكفرون
هذا الدين الذي تدافعون عنه ليس بديني هذا صحيح. .. أنا ديني الإسلام و الرحمة و أنتم دينكم التكفير و النَّقمة.

– لم أذهب إلى مكة لأرى من يدَّعي أنَّه يمثِّل الدين يضرب أرجل النساء بالعصا و يهشّهن كالغنم.. أنا لست بعيراً بيد راعٍ أنا إنسانة جاءت لتقلى ربها

– لم أذهب إلى مكة كي أرى متاجر إسرائيل على بُعد خطوات من بيت الله الحرام

– لم أذهب إلى مكة لأرى آلاف الفقراء المساكين يقفون بين يدي الله بأثوابهم البالية فيجبرهم الإمام أن يدعوا للملوك و السلاطين الذين لا يصلّون أصلاً

– لم أذهب إلى مكة ليبكي قلبي ما فعلتموه بهذه المدينة الطاهرة..بالمسجد الحرام،ذهبت إليها بحثاً عن الله.. فلم أجدْه عندكم.. نعم ما وجدته إلا بقلبي

لو أنّي بحثت عن الله في مكّة.. أو في مذهبكم العنيف لكَفرتُ من زمان

… هذا صحيح.. فالحمد لله أنّي لم أبحث عنه إلا بقلبي
إن لم يسعنا الإسلام جميعاً – فاذهبوا أنتم. أنا هنا في رحاب الله باقية… مسلمة أنا لن أتخلّى عن ديني و لو قاتلتموني عليه بالسلاح.
– أنتم قتلتم الحلّاج … أنتم قتلتم الروحانية في مكة.. أنتم قتلتم الله في قلوب الناس.. – – أنتم شوّهتم دين الله ألا شاهت وجوهكم.
مَن كان يعبد محمد بن عبد الله – فإنّه قد مات و مَن كان يعبد الله فإن الله حيٌّ لا يموت.

أحدٌ أحدْ.. ربُّ المكَفِّرِ شيخُهُ… رب المكفِّرِ سيفُهُ… و أنا إلهي ليس يسكن في جمادٍ أو جسدْ… أَحدٌ أحَدْ … أحَدٌ أحَدْ …

– إن تضعوا حجر التكفير على صدري فلا أقول إلا: أحدٌ أحدْ.. أنا ما وجدتُك في بلدْ، أنا ما وجدتك في جسدْ، أنا ما وجدتك في سوى قلبٍ لغيرك ما سجدْ

أَحدٌ أحَدْ … أحَدٌ أحَدْ … ربُّ المُكفِّرِ قاتلٌ … ربُّ المكفِّر مُستَبِدْ … و أنا إلهي في فؤادي…ليس يقتلُهُ أحَدْ …

Archaeologists want us to believe that the Phoenician empires began around 1,300 BC.   I conjecture that any ruins around the Mediterranean basin, England and Scandinavia that were built with megalithic stones, as big as those in Baalbak in Lebanon,  are from a species originating from the eastern shore with the same set of Gods, some 7,000 years ago

The USA: No longer the center of human rights and values. Both political parties obey the requirements of the weapons industrial complexes

Companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon have bought out more than 500 competitors in the last 10 years, and thus benefiting from an outdated definition of monopoly.

I get bored reading the myths in the religious Books. Would prefer hearing the stories from the sources: Those funny verbal story tellers, with great humor, a wink and a twinkle in their eyes

There is no such “Arab civilization”: it is the civilization of the people in the Middle-East (Syria, Iran, Egypt…) within the Islamic Empire. That the commanders of armies were selected from the “elite classes” in Mecca and Medina do Not constitute a civilization

You have these Lebanese who say: “Just show me a single event where Saudi Kingdom was Not good to Lebanon”. As if in the history of Lebanon pseudo-State ever took a position that dissatisfied the the Saudi mind-set

Taste can’t be copyrighted. The EU made this ruling after cheesemaker Levola sued competitor Smilde over a suspiciously similar spreadable cheese.

When someone tells us a certain kind of person is dangerous, we’re too eager to believe our xenophobic instincts. We work ourselves into a frenzy over a small injustice, but stand by when the big scam gets done right in front of our eyes.

And we don’t like being wrong. Hence the paradox, the corner we’ve painted ourselves into: We need to believe, we want to believe, we benefit from believing. We can’t function without news and connection and forward motion. But, we don’t like to be proven wrong.

Non-belief doesn’t help, because we can’t make forward motion without any set of belief system. No society works without trust and optimism. Which leads us to the cost of agency and the cost of freedom: the responsibility of believing in things that work. We received leverage and the price is responsibility.

Stop weapons sale to Saudi Kingdom warmongers:

Stop the carnage and famine in Yemen

And why Jamal Khashoggi was massacred in Istanbul Saudi Kingdom consulate?

Jamal Khashoggi walked into a Saudi consulate hoping for a permit to marry the love of his life — instead, he was beheaded and chopped into pieces with a bone saw. (Beheaded with a sword or the saw?)

It’s a horrific crime — and the outrage sparked by it could be exactly what we need to make lasting change in Saudi Arabia.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has projected an image of a softer Saudi — while bombing Yemeni children, locking up human rights bloggers…and now likely ordering the grisly murder of a journalist.

He’s a monster, not a moderate.

A few State leaders and multinationals (Not linked to oil and gas) are taking notice.

Germany just announced it would suspend arms sales to Saudi until the truth about Khashoggi is revealed.

(And then what? The sale will resume. As France Macron said that suspending sales of weapons by the hundred of Billions is Demagoguery)

Arms are the world’s biggest leverage over Saudi and pressure in the UK, France and Canada is mounting.

(Beside Saudi Kingdom, Gulf Emirates, India, Iraq and few other oil producing countries, weapon sales are limited to small arms in other belligerent States. That is why the colonial powers persist on fomenting civil wars every where they can)

(Saudi Kingdom has already stockpiled plenty of weapons of all kinds for its own defenses. What is being exported are offensive weapons against the Yemeni famished people)

If they and others follow suit, it could force Saudi Arabia to make real changes — and maybe even push out the Crown Prince (To be replaced by another absolute monarch?)

It’s crazy that it’s taken this murder to make the world wake up to Saudi brutality. But while Mohammed bin Salman has cracked down on dissent and dropped bombs on Yemen, our governments have kept selling him arms, taking his billions, and giving him red carpet treatment everywhere he goes. He’s been untouchable.

Now things seem different.

Even in the US, Saudi’s staunchest ally, hard right-wing hawks are calling for changes, with multiple bills on the table that would impact arms sales.

The pressure is getting through, with media reporting secret meetings by Saudi’s ruling elites to consider the next move.

Our community has rallied against the Crown Prince’s bloody reign in Saudi Arabia time and again. We even got the EU Parliament to support an arms ban — but governments didn’t listen. Now they’re listening. Let’s seize the opportunity to put an end to the devastating arms sales.

U.S. Announces Penalties Against Saudi Arabia for Khashoggi Killing (Haaretz)

Top U.S. General makes three stunning admissions about the Middle East

Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia.

The head of the U.S. military’s Central Command made some stunning admissions about the present geo-political situation in the Middle East, during a Congressional testimony, that will go largely unnoticed in much of the mainstream media.

  • Assad has won
  • Iran deal should stand
  • Saudi Arabia uses American weapons without accountability in Yemen

The top U.S. general in the Middle East testified before Congress on Tuesday and dropped several bombshells: from signaled support for the Iran nuclear deal, admitting the U.S. does not know what Saudi Arabia does with its bombs in Yemen and that Assad has won the Syrian Civil War.

U.S. Army General Joseph Votel said the Iran agreement, which President Donald Trump has threatened to withdraw from, has played an important role in addressing Iran’s nuclear program.

“The JCPOA addresses one of the principle threats that we deal with from Iran, so if the JCPOA goes away, then we will have to have another way to deal with their nuclear weapons program,” said U.S. Army General Joseph Votel.

JCPOA, or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, is the formal name of the accord reached with Iran in July 2015 in Vienna.

Trump has threatened to withdraw the United States from the accord between Tehran and six world powers unless Congress and European allies help “fix” it with a follow-up pact. Trump does not like the deal’s limited duration, among other things. (Is Trump used to colonial deals of 100 years?)

Votel is head of the U.S. military’s Central Command, which is responsible for the Middle East and Central Asia, including Iran.

He was speaking to a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the same day that Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson after a series of public rifts over policy, including Iran.

Tillerson had joined Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in pressing a skeptical Trump to stick with the agreement with Iran.

“There would be some concern (in the region), I think, about how we intended to address that particular threat if it was not being addressed through the JCPOA. … Right now, I think it is in our interest” to stay in the deal, Votel said.

When a lawmaker asked whether he agreed with Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford’s position on the deal,Votel said: “Yes, I share their position.”

Mattis said late last year that the United States should consider staying in the Iran nuclear deal unless it was proven Tehran was not complying or that the agreement was not in the U.S. national interest.

A collapse of the Iran nuclear deal would be a “great loss,” the United Nations atomic watchdog’s chief warned Trump recently, giving a wide-ranging defense of the accord.

Iran has stayed within the deal’s restrictions since Trump took office but has fired diplomatic warning shots at Washington in recent weeks. It said on Monday that it could rapidly enrich uranium to a higher degree of purity if the deal collapsed.


Votel also discussed the situation in Syria at the hearing.

During the Syrian army’s offensive in eastern Ghouta, more than 1,100 civilians have died. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces, backed by Russia and Iran, say they are targeting “terrorist” groups shelling the capital. (No other parties backed the Syrian army in liberating Al Ghouta)

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley warned on Monday that Washington “remains prepared to act if we must,” if the U.N. Security Council failed to act on Syria. (Just empty threats, as usual)

Votel said the best way to deter Russia, which backs Assad, was through political and diplomatic channels.

“Certainly if there are other things that are considered, you know, we will do what we are told. … (But) I don’t recommend that at this particular point,” Votel said, in an apparent to reference to military options.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham asked whether it was too strong to say that with Russia and Iran’s help, Assad had “won” the civil war in Syria.

“I do not think that is too strong of a statement,” Votel said.

Graham also asked if the United States’ policy on Syria was still to seek the removal of Assad from power.

“I don’t know that that’s our particular policy at this particular point. Our focus remains on the defeat of ISIS,” Votel said, using an acronym for Islamic State.

Saudi Arabia

In a stunning exchange with Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, Votel admitted that Centcom doesn’t know when U.S. fuel and munitions are used in Yemen.

“General Votel, does CENTCOM track the purpose of the missions it is refueling? In other words, where a U.S.-refueled aircraft is going, what targets it strikes, and the result of the mission?” Warren asked.

“Senator, we do not,” Votel replied.

The Senator followed up, citing reports that U.S. munitions have been used against civilians in Yemen, she asked, “General Votel, when you receive reports like this from credible media organizations or outside observers, is CENTCOM able to tell if U.S. fuel or U.S. munitions were used in that strike?”

“No, senator, I don’t believe we are,” he replied.

Showing surprise at the general’s response, Warren concluded, “We need to be clear about this: Saudi Arabia’s the one receiving American weapons and American support. And that means we bear some responsibility here. And that means we need to hold our partners and our allies accountable for how those resources are used,” she said.

Trump must demand that Israel conduct a referendum with this question: “Do you agree for Jerusalem to become the Official and Formal Capital of Israel? ” I bet Israel government Won’t Dare run this referendum.

Unilaterally and in a single declaration, Trump smashed 4 decades of a strategy to creating an imaginary enemy between the Sunnis-Shias divide.  The people, in a flash, re-adjusted their direction toward their Existential enemy: Zionism/USA establishment

Israel government wants to still believe the Palestinians are stupid: They allowed for the first time Palestinian youths to enter the Grand Mosque. They assume that the Palestinians will believe that no more constraints on movements will be imposed once Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel.

The day Trump declared his statement on Jerusalem, unilaterally, Israel declared it will be build 14,000 more units in Jerusalem for the settlers.

In a single day, Israel forces killed 3 and injured 1,100 Palestinian youths with live bullets. Most of them were hospitalized with concentrated and poisonous gas canisters in 10 Palestinian cities and villages.

A great event: Lebanon Parliament met for deputies to express their opinions on the Jerusalem crisis: this is a message for all States to convene their parliaments and let the representatives of their people to share their positions.

The Palestinians in Lebanon refugee camps are starting to side with Hezbollah strategy: Zionism/USA establishment are the Existential enemies

That’s what is called a strong and major Catalyst: Trump in a single declaration awakened the majority of the “Arabic” people, and in a flash, to their existential enemy: Zionism/USA establishment

Israel mindless traditional apartheid tactics of militarily confronting Palestinian mass civil disobedience is backfiring: After over 1,100 Palestinians injured with live bullets within 24 hours, escalation is quickly transforming into missile launching from Gaza and readiness of Palestinian factions into military confrontation.

Unless Trump retracts on his declaration, events are escalating into an all out war from various sides: Gaza, West bank, Lebanon and most probably Jordan.

This Lone Ranger of Trump will quickly find himself isolated and impotent to weight in in any cease fire or share in any deal in the Middle-East.

Israel is about to pay the heaviest of prices for exiting this clownish Trump and his close family circle.

Although Saudi Kingdom was let into this decision 2 weeks ago, it didn’t measure the enormousness of this blunder. Not only they officially condemned this declaration, they feel totally helpless to mitigate this declaration in the face of the massive uprising in the “Arabic” and Islamic world. Monday, the Arab Summit will meet in Cairo: This time around, Saudi Kingdom will shut up and let the condemnation fuse.

States are coming forth and convoking US ambassadors to lambaste them and decry the outrageous declaration that goes counter to the UN resolutions and world community position.

This Wednesday, the Islamic Summit will meet in Turkey to condemn this infamous declaration. Erdogan has already condemned Israel as a violent terrorist State that occupies other people lands

The head of parliaments will meet on Thursday to send a strong message to Trump of the representatives of the people

The US is warning its citizens Not to exhibit themselves in 12 countries and soon, many of its embassies will be vacated until events cool down.

This Pence, smug Vice-President, is to tour the region to meet Islamic high clerics in Egypt, Palestine… They all declined to meet with him. What the hell is he to tell them anyway.

This Not 1948 or 1967. Events won’t be the blank kinds.

“Orgies with underage girls, heavy drug and alcohol abuse” –

Saudi princess unveils the Kingdom’s dark side

November 6th, 2017 – Fort Russ News – – – translated by Samer Hussein
Amira Bint Aidan Bin Nayef, the ex-wife of the Saudi Prince Al Waleed bin Talal (who was recently arrested in scope of the anti-corruption purges in the country), went on a rampage against the ruling Saudi regime in her exclusive statements to the French newspaper Le Monde, saying that those who accuse others of corruption and money laundering, are in fact highly corrupted themselves.
Note: Al Waleed bin Talal married the sister of Amira in a swap deal with another Prince, with $millions exchanged in that deal. Amira ‘ssister was dispatched to Paris to learn how to behave in high societies since she is basically illeterate.
The princess said they’ve turned the city of Jeddah into a slave market where underage girls are being exploited for noisy sex parties involving drug and alcohol abuse.
She said that one of the main reasons why this keeps going on is that the members of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (Saudi Sharia police) tend to keep away from the matter, fearing they might lose their jobs, should they intervene.
The newspaper quoted the princess as saying that a Hallowen event was recently held in Jeddah, and which was attended by 150 people, including employees of the consulates. The scene was like a typical nightclub anywhere outside the Kingdom, with available wines, dancing couples in fancy costumes, and a DJ.
Bint Aidan said the price of smuggled liquor in the country is very high.
For instance, the price of the Smirnoff vodka is 1500 Riyals ($ 400), sometimes forcing party organizers to refill the original bottles with a local wine called Siddiqui. 
She said that slavery in Saudi Arabia has different forms, but it is done in secrecy and permitted only among the primary beneficiaries of the princes of the House of Saud.
But then she mentioned one of the most repulsive things: Buying and renting the children, especially the orphans, from countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Djibouti, Somalia, Nigeria, Romania and Bulgaria.
The children become the property of those who buy them and are not allowed to leave without permission.
Even the Asian maids who come to work often find themselves in a kind of slave-like position.
Young girls are divided into smaller groups and exploited for immoral acts.
Trafficking of white women and exploiting them for sexual practices is also relatively common.
