Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday warned the West not to take unilateral action on Syria, saying that Russia and China agree that violations of international law and the United Nations charter are impermissible.Lavrov, cited by Russian news agencies at a meeting with China's top diplomat, was speaking a day after US President Barack Obama said US forces could move against President Bashar Assad if he deploys chemical weapons against rebels trying to overthrow him.
In some of his strongest language yet, Obama on Monday bluntly warned Assad of "enormous consequences" if he failed to safeguard his weapons of mass destruction.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the West on Tuesday against any unilateral action on Syria after President Barack Obama said U.S. forces could act if the Syrian leader deployed chemical weapons against rebels trying to topple him.
Russian leaders have said they are determined to avoid a repeat of what occurred in 2011 in Libya, when Moscow let NATO military operations go ahead by abstaining from Security Council resolution that authorized air operations.
Russian officials then accused the United States and its allies of overstepping their mandate and using it to help rebels overthrow longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi. Putin, prime minister then but now back in official charge of foreign policy, likened the U.N. resolution to "medieval calls for crusades".
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has demanded that Egypt cease sending tanks into the Sinai without Israel's approval, a “blatant violation” of the 1979 peace treaty, the MaarivHebrew-language website reported Tuesday.An Egyptian newspaper reported that local Bedouin claimed that Egypt already has sent dozens of tanks to the northern Sinai, near the Israeli border. The report has not been confirmed, and most other media outlets have reported that Egypt is preparing to send in tanks, planes and additional soldiersAn unstated concern of almost every Israeli who remembers the Yom Kippur War is that a renewed Egyptian military presence in the Sinai could set the stage for another war, especially if Iran or Hizbullah attacks from the north.
Israel has told Egypt that it must remove its tanks from the Sinai Peninsula because their continued presence violates the peace agreement between the two countries.The message was sent via the White House in an effort to give the warning added weight and to bridge the shaky relationship between Israeli and Egyptian security forces, Maariv reported on Tuesday. Israel was protesting the ongoing increase in military presence, which has been going ahead without coordination with Jerusalem.The decision to communicate via the White House was made, the report said, because Israeli ties with Egypt have become strained in recent months. The United States is still influential thanks to the $1.3 billion of military aid it supplies to Egypt every year.
Coordinated attempts by NATO and its proxy forces to invade and overrun the cities of Damascus and Aleppo in July and early August have failed, with proxy forces being expelled after suffering sizable loses. An attempt to decapitate Syria’s leadership in a bombing in central Damascus also fell flat, with high ranking officials quickly replaced, followed quickly by a cohesive military counter offensive.With this in mind, the US has been making increasingly unhinged remarks regarding “weapons of mass destruction” in Syria and attempting to expand the pretexts under which it could “militarily intervene.” Even the very “movement” of Syria’s “unconventional weapons” in a “threatening manner,” US President Barack Obama claimed in a recent statement, would constitute a “red line.”No matter how well Syria goes for the West from this point on, the mechanisms it has used to get here, including its “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine, the legitimacy of the UN, the West’s so-called commitment to “human rights,” and the narrative of the so-called “War on Terror” have been undermined beyond salvage.
Analysts say because Israel now believes diplomacy has failed to halt Iran’s nuclear program and the Jewish state’s very survival is at stake, Israelis have not ruled out a Jericho III missile launch to detonate a single electromagnetic pulse warhead at high altitude over central Iran.Given that Iranian sites may be hardened against a conventional military attack, several Israeli and foreign sources believe that Israel has a nuclear device to create an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, that would produce little radiation on the ground but could knock out all of Iran’s electronics.Israel also is assessed to be able to launch nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles from its German-supplied Dolphin electric submarines that could carry a one-kiloton or more device and explode over Iran, effectively neutralizing all of Iran’s electronics.Another scenario discussed among some Israeli leaders is the detonation of an EMP over the entire Middle East, including Israel, whose military infrastructure has been hardened against such attacks. This would allow Israel to fly its jets directly to Iran without concerns about detection. Though it would also turn out the lights in Israel, sources there say the Jewish state could bring power back for civilians in a matter of days.According to U.S. intelligence sources, Israel not only possesses nuclear devices of one kiloton or more which would be sufficient to create an effective result from an electromagnetic pulse but has Jericho III missiles which it tested in 2009 capable of carrying nuclear payloads some 2,500 miles. The distance between Israel and Iran is approximately 1,000 miles.
Asked by the news anchor in the Hebrew-language TV report how close Israel now was to “a decision and perhaps an attack,” Ben-David said: “It appears that we are closer than ever.”The report added that Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak believe Obama would have no choice but to give backing for an Israeli attack before the US presidential elections in November.
Iran unveiled upgrades to six weapons on Tuesday, including a more accurate short-range missile, a more powerful naval engine and an airborne testing laboratory, Iranian media reported. The country also released plans to launch domestically-manufactured fighter jets and new submarines by early 2013, and has production of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles "on the agenda," Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said according to Iran's semi-official Mehr news agency.
One hundred officers in the IDF reserves, including battalion and company commanders, have sent a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is which they express their full confidence in the IDF and the government, and their opposition to calls for refusal of orders.
The letter's initiators, Capt. (res.) Raz Levy and Capt. (res.) Aviel Siman Tov, say that the letter was written in response to the letter by 400 academicians, who called on IAF pilots to refuse orders in case they are instructed to attack Iran.
"We, 100 IDF officers in the reserves, in the air force Force, Navy and ground forces, hereby state that we will follow any order we are given and carry out any mission we are sent to by the military and civilian command," the letter to Netanyahu says.
"It is a well known and clear fact that our very participation in military service is an expression of the trust we place in the system. However, we feel that these days, there is a need to clarify even the obvious.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is pressuring the spiritual leader of the Shas party, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, to support an Israeli attack on Iran.According to a report on Monday on the hareidi website Kikar HaShabbat, NationalSecurity Advisor Yaakov Amidror met with Rabbi Yosef at his home in Jerusalem on Friday.
“This is a campaign by officials in the Prime Minister's Office officials to place pressure on Shas and on Cabinet member Minister Eli Yishai to support a possible attack on Iran,” a source familiar with the meeting told Kikar HaShabbat.
While Shas does not often publicly speak about the party's position on the issue of a possible Israeli strike in Iran, it is believed that Yishai is not in favor of an Israeli attack.
Cornelio said the main purpose of the exercise is to test the command and control system called the Joint Air Defense Operation Center, located at Anacostia-Bolling.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) confirms that it is purchasing 174 thousand rounds of hollow point bullets to be delivered to 41 locations in major cities across the U.S. No one has yet said what the purpose of these purchases is, though we are led to believe that they will be used only in an emergency to counteract and control civil unrest. Those against whom the hollow point bullets are to be used — those causing the civil unrest — must be American citizens; since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens.
What would be the target of these 174, 000 rounds of hollow point bullets? It can’t simply be to control demonstrators or rioters. Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war. Hollow point bullets don’t just stop or hurt people, they penetrate the body, spread out, fragment and cause maximum damage to the body’s organs. Death often follows.Potentially each hollow nose bullet represents a dead American. If so, why would the U.S. government want the SSA to kill 174,000 of our citizens, even during a time of civil unrest? Or is the purpose to kill 174,000 of the nation’s military and replace them with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) special security forces, forces loyal to the Administration, not to the Constitution?If this were only a one time order of ammunition, it could easily be dismissed. But there is a pattern here. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has ordered 46,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition. Notice that all of these purchases are for the lethal hollow nose bullets. These bullets are not being purchased and stored for squirrel or coyote hunting. This is serious ammunition manufactured to be used for serious purposes.In the war in Iraq, our military forces expended approximately 70 million rounds per year. In March DHS ordered 750 million rounds of hollow point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets including some that are capable of penetrating walls. This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about? What’s the plan that requires so many dead Americans, even during times of civil unrest? Has Congress and the Administration vetted the plan in public.I fear that Congress won’t take these ammunition purchases seriously until they are all led from Capitol Hill in handcuffs. Why buy all this ammunition unless you plan to use it. Unknown to Congress, Does DHS plan to declare war on some country? Shouldn’t Congress hold hearings on why the Administration is stockpiling this ammunition all across the nation? How will it be used; what are the Administration’s plans?
We have enough military forces to maintain law and order in the U.S. even during times of civil unrest.
We have local police, backed up by each state’s National Guard, backed up by the Department of Defense. So in addition to all these forces why does DHS need its own private army? Why do the SSA, NOAA and other government agencies need to create their own civilian security forces armed with hollow nose bullets?This is a deadly serious business. I hope I’m wrong, but something smells rotten. And If the Congress isn’t going to do its duty and investigate this matter fully, the military will have to protect the Constitution, the nation, and our citizens.
Like most “average” Americans barraged by a daily onslaught of news headlines, sound bites and printed blurbs in newspapers and on the internet about current events, I’ve found it easy to become rather desensitized to the majority of “white noise” that has become the daily news. As such, it’s easy to lose sight of significant events or “game changers” amid the chatter of everyone behind a microphone, television camera or typing at a news terminal
Now add to this explosion of news and knowledge one’s own career where we “average” people are busy trying to make a living, keep the lights on, food on the table and the proverbial wolves from our door, it’s easy to lose sight of important events taking place right in front of us. Done by design, it’s also easier to be deceived and fall for big lies as well as the smaller ones.I’ve recently spoken to several people who, for the reasons stated above, were shocked and horrified about the news reports out of Egypt describing the barbaric crucifixions of opponents to the newly installed President Mohammed Morsi by “radical Muslims.”To that end, I’ve researched and studied everything I could and read so many U.S. foreign policy documents that I thought my eyes would begin to bleed or my head would explode, noting that either scenario would delight my critics. I did not want answers based in partisan politics. I simply wanted the truth, and wanted the truth simply and plainly. I now find myself severely troubled at what I’ve found.Much like the gruesome beheadings at the hands of al Qaeda, however, there is a much deeper and more sinister component to these activities that you will not hear in the corporate media. Even most of the conservative press is deliberately shying away from the truth. What many are saying is that this persecution is an Arab Spring that has “run amok.”Most analysts and talking heads are stumbling all over themselves to explain that the crucifixions taking place in Egypt are a largely secular or “partisan” response to the opposition of Mohammed Morsi.Closer investigation of what is taking place in Egypt tells a much different story and does not comport with a plan gone awry, but rather a plan coming to fruition.Equally alarming, at the epicenter of the plan is none other than Barack Hussein Obama and a cadre of globalists who are in progress of reshaping the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East and the entire world. Research has taken me from the crucifixions in Egypt to halls of the White House, to Barack Obama and his closest advisors, to the U.S. State Department and Hillary Clinton and her closest advisors, and back outward to a greater cabal of international globalists wielding untold power, influence and of course, money.
It is becoming obvious to even the most hardened cynics that Arab Spring is not what it purports to be. Since Arab Spring began in December 2010, the corporate media has compared the “movement” to the anti-Communist revolutions in the late 1980s. Despite the orchestrated chaos, death and the foothold gained by radical Islamic organizations including al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama himself has identified Arab Spring as a success in his foreign policy. After all, the removal of oppressive dictatorships is a good thing for the people of the various countries where change is occurring. Except when it’s not, and especially if you are a non-Muslim.If Arab Spring is not what it purports to be, what, then, is it? My unbiased research found it is but one element of an asymmetrical plan for global domination, a tool to rein in the Middle East under a central power while systematically squeezing Israel at the same time. It is part of the (dare I say it?) “New World Order,” or one world governance that has been the objective of the real, multi-generational power brokers who control global finance.I believe the facts make the case for the existence of a larger and darker agenda.Students of global governance understand that faith and religion, like sovereignty, present serious obstacles to a one world system of governance. Therefore, the crucifixions in Egypt should serve as an important “visual” to the larger agenda that extends far beyond political opposition in that country alone. It is a harbinger of things to come.History has shown that while Islam cannot coexist with democracy, it can operate with socialism and can be used to advance the socialist agenda. Islam has been used by the National Socialist Party in Germany in their quest for world domination. It is well tolerated by the globalists, and is presented as the sole acceptable “religious” doctrine by the United Nations.For this reason, it is being used to throttle freedom of speech under the guise of tolerance, and even make the mere criticism of Islam and international crime. The proponents of this international effort are closer than people think. In fact, they have infiltrated all departments of our own government.
How long will it be before the subtle persecution of Christians and values in America will be like those in Egypt?To achieve the objective of a one world global governance, religious freedom and national sovereignty must be eradicated. The United States of America has stood in the way of those objectives, and those seeking global domination known that the best way to destroy the U.S. is to do so from within. The Muslim Brotherhood admits that their objective is to infiltrate and ultimately destroy religious freedom and the U.S., and shares that goal with the global elite.
While the Muslim Brotherhood had its tentacles around previous administrations, the beachhead they established under Barack Hussein Obama and his key advisor Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian native, his Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and numerous other unelected advisors is significant. For example, the Muslim Brotherhood had an early showing within the Obama occupancy of the White House by special invitation from Barack Hussein Obama himself. Invited to offer Muslim prayers at his inauguration, Ingrid Mattson, then-President of the Muslim Brotherhood connected Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group also named as an unindicted coconspirator in the largest terrorist funding trial in U.S. history, delivered the Islamic prayers.Then on June 4, 2009, within the first six months of Barack Hussein Obama’s occupation of the White House, he delivered a speech to the Muslim world at the Al-Azhar University in Cairo. The significance of that speech cannot be overstated, as it laid the foundation for the Arab Spring itself. With the full knowledge and approval of the Obama White House and State Department, top members of the Muslim Brotherhood were invited to that speech, and Egyptian lawmakers from the Muslim Brotherhood were in attendance. The now infamous Cairo speech served to facilitate a new acceptance and official recognition of the Muslim Brotherhood, the ideological forebear of Hamas and al Qaeda, by the U.S., compliments of Obama.Concurrent with Barack Hussein Obama’s Islamic outreach overseas, members or associates of the Muslim Brotherhood were becoming entrenched within the U.S. government. At the U.S. State Department, for example, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s “body woman” during her presidential campaign, Huma Abedin, was appointed to the key position of the Secretary of State’s Chief of Staff. Abedin has finally become the focus of a recent investigation by U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann and four other members of Congress due to her peripheral ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.Another example includes Kifah Mustapha, a former employee of the Holy Land Foundation with direct and longstanding ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and the terrorist group Hamas. Despite his well known terrorist connections, Mustapha was admitted to a six-week “Citizen’s Academy” hosted by the FBI as part of its “outreach” to the Muslim Community in September 2010; he was also given access to the top-secret National Counterterrorism Center and other secure government facilities, including the FBI’s training center at Quantico.In October 2010, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano appointed Mohamed Elibiary, a guest speaker at a 2004 rally honoring the late Ayatollah Khomeini to the DHS Security’s Homeland Security Advisory Council. Out of 26 council members, Elibiary was inexplicably the only member to be given access to a highly sensitive DHS database containing hundreds of thousands of intelligence reports intended solely to aid law-enforcement agencies.There are others, but it should be clear by these examples that the Muslim Brotherhood is firmly rooted within all departments under Barack Hussein Obama. Given the known objectives of the Muslim Brotherhood, their influence on domestic and foreign policy should not be difficult to accept.As far as Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood goes, Obama announced his intention to bypass congress and provide $1.5 billion in American taxpayer funded aid to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. While it is true congress approved the financial aid with the stipulation that the U.S. State Department signed off on the deal, Obama stated that he would act outside of congress. In other words, the check was as good as written. The Clinton State Department has raised little objection despite the ruthless persecution by Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Based on the limited facts presented above, and there are many more untold, it should be clear who and what is behind Arab Spring, and the motives of the same. If Obama and his cabal of sycophants continue to promote Arab Spring as a success and tolerate the persecution of Christians, it should be clear what’s in store for the Christians and Jews of America.
The time for Christians and Jews in America and throughout the West to speak up is now. To quote Thomas Mann, “Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil.”
