Wiping Out the Christians of Syria and Iraq to Remap the Mid-East: Prerequisite to a Clash of Civilizations? (I)

Historically, the Levant is the birthplace of Christianity and the oldest Christian communities have lived in it and the entire Fertile Crescent since the start of Christian history... Nevertheless, the Christians of the Levant and Iraq are now in the cross-hairs. Deceit and mischief has been at play. It is no coincidence that Egyptian Christians were attacked at the same time as the South Sudan Referendum, which was supposed to signal a split between the Muslims in Khartoum and the Christians and animists in Juba. Nor is it an accident that Iraq’s Christian, one of the oldest Christian communities in the world, began to face a modern exodus, leaving their homes and ancestral homeland in Iraq in 2003. Mysterious groups targeted both them and Palestinian refugees...

Israel Is Stealing and Murdering Its Way Through Palestine

Since the 1940s Zionists have been stealing Palestine from the Palestinians. The majority of Palestinians have been removed from their homes and their country. They exist in refugee camps in other countries and 1.5 million are concentrated in the Gaza Ghetto... Israel is always the aggressor but always take the role of the victim. Palestinian women and children are all subhumans - ”snakes” as one Israeli politician put it--who sneak into Israel through secret tunnels (whose existence is akin to Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction) wearing suicide bomb belts and blow up innocent Israelis along with themselves... To stop this slaughter of innocent Israelis, Israel has to blow up Palestinian hospitals, schools, and civilian homes and apartment blocks...

Inside Iraq: Situation Report

On July 24, the Iraqi parliament elected a new president... According to the rules imposed by US interim administration led by Paul Bremer in 2003 in the days of US occupation, the office of Iraqi President should belong to a Kurd... The Sunnis are under heavy pressing. They want an Arab, not a Kurd, to hold the presidential office... The electoral process is taking place in the heat of crisis which may end up in the partition of the country. The Iraqi Kurdistan is on the way to holding a referendum on independence. Actually Bagdad has lost control over vast lands in the Sunni-populated Iraqi provinces where the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has established its rule. The number of migrants has exceeded 1, 5 million. The Islamists made seek refuge all the Christians living in Mosul and are destroying Shiite and Christian shrines. The battle is raging at the distance of 20-40 kilometers from Bagdad...

Iraqi Kurdistan Pushed to Independence

...After Saddam Hussein was overthrown, the United States insisted on territorial integrity of Iraq with vast autonomy for Kurdistan. It was 2003. The United States hoped to install its firm military control over the Middle East. Those days the US did not think about the world disorder. Formally the autonomy was created in 1974, so the question was not the status of autonomy itself but rather defining the borders. Kurds wanted the oil-rich Kirkuk to be theirs. Baghdad did its best to oppose this outcome. Americans acted as go-betweens and continued their mediation efforts till they preserved the interest in maintaining stability...

Can Israel Win in Gaza?

Gaza Strip has been bleeding for already 50 years. Palestinian leaders change, the Israeli governments come and go, but the process never stops. This small chunk of land with the population of one and a half million people never leaves completely the world radar screen. It always follows the same kind of vicious circle. Sometimes the reports come saying Tel Aviv has finally decided to settle the Gaza problem. Normally such news are followed by new victims and damage inflicted by Israel and it all turns back to where it was. That’s what is happening this time too. No operation Solid Rock, as they call it, launched against Palestinians can stand in Gaza where there is no solid ground for a rock to stand on. Israel will report about delivering a shattering blow against terrorists, while Palestinians will mourn their next of kin and start to brace up for next fight...

The US Trident in Iraq

Washington is currently trying to work out what to do with Iraq. Condoleezza Rice once promised to transform the US-occupied Arab country into a «torch of democracy». And now Joe Biden is once again promising the Iraqi people democracy, but no longer for all and no longer throughout the whole country, just in parts. Sunnis from Isis are promising their own kind of democracy, and they have already shown exactly how it will be: either join them or die. For Iraqi Shiites, meanwhile, it would be more democratic to overthrow their leader and select a new American protege. For the Kurds, it would be abandoning federalism and adherence to the constitution of a unified state. Thus, the US policy regarding Iraq has the feeling of a trident...

Iraq Partition, US Way

Iraq was the first phase of the US Greater Middle East plan being shaped on the world map. Even before the 2003 invasion, Washington wanted to partition the country into three parts: Sunni, Shia and Kurdish. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (alternatively translated as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, abbreviated ISIL, ISIS) offensive to capture a large part of Iraqi land is nothing else but part of this plan. Speaking formally the White House calls on the Kurds not to sever ties with Baghdad and promises military aid to the Shiite – dominated al-Maliki government. The United States also talks about the possibility of joining efforts with Iran to counter the terrorists, but in practice it sticks to the policy of instigating chaos to make Iraq a divided state...

Prince Bandar back in the Driver’s Seat in Riyadh

Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulazia bin Saud is the godfather behind the creation of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), now called the «Islamic State» or «Islamic Caliphate»... Bandar has returned to an influential position advising King Abdullah after being sacked as Saudi intelligence chief last April. Bandar's new title is «adviser to the King and his special envoy»... CIA director John O. Brennan, a Saudophile and former CIA station chief in Riyadh, reportedly played a hand in the restoration of Bandar to a key position in the Saudi government... Bandar's goal is to eliminate the current governments of Syria and Iraq, thus depriving Iran of its only two allies in the region...

Pushing Ukraine to the Brink

Everything. It reveals the commercial interests that drive US policy. Just as the War in Afghanistan was largely fought to facilitate the transfer of natural gas from Turkmenistan to the Arabian Sea, so too, Washington engineered the bloody coup in Kiev to cut off energy supplies from Russia to Europe to facilitate the US pivot to Asia.

Organ Harvesting in Ukraine Goes Unreported

Unlike the terrorist offenses in Libya, Syria, and now Iraq, backed by the United States, the UK, the EU, members of NATO as well as regional collaborators such as Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Qatar, where any attempts to stop extremists from seizing entire nations is met by the West’s howling indignation and accusations of “human rights abuses,” the  unmitigat ed brutality executed by literal Nazis in Ukraine  against breakaway provinces in the east are accompanied by a hypocritical silence from the West. Refugees streaming away from encircled and bombarded populated centers tell tales of mass murder, indiscriminate targeting of civilians, and even grisly accounts of forced organ harvesting taking place from the bodies of those killed by Kiev’s combined arms offensive, or from those kidnapped by criminal gangs operating in the vacuum of impunity afforded by the West’s silence.

Washington’s Banking Sanctions – Formal and Informal

...Since 1 April 2009, American financial regulators have fined European banks 32 times totalling nearly $25 billion... On 30 June 2014, the French bank BNP Paribas, which ranks fourth in the world in terms of assets and second in France, agreed to pay US authorities a record $9-billion fine. The bank’s management is charged with helping its Sudanese, Iranian and Cuban clients carry out dollar transactions banned by the US sanctions regime. In the coming months, giants of European banking like the German Kommerzbank and Deutsche Bank, French Credit Agricole and Societe Generale, and Italian Unicredit, among others, could also be subject to penalties...
