    Trump To Visit Israel, Saudi Arabia, and The Vatican
    By Brother Nathanael Kapner
    Copyright 2017

    Trump’s headed to Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the Vatican this month.

    Though we’re not sure exactly which country will be “first” on his roster, it’s not America.

    “America First” gets shelved, Israel gets top ranking.

    It looks like a religious trek—I mean, the ‘three great religions’ and all that—Israel’s Judaism; Saudi Arabia’s Islam; and the Vatican’s Christianity.

    Look for photo-ops of Trump at the Wailing Wall with a yarmulke on his goyisha kup, then at Yad Vashem, praying to the graven images of Holocaustianity.

    Then his pilgrimage to Mecca…(scratch that, only Muslims allowed)…

    …and then, shaking hands with the pope, who said last year that Trump was “no Christian,” and Trump tweeting back that the pope’s poke was a “disgrace.”

    Now, will Trump meet with Israel’s president, “Ruvi” Rivlin?

    If so, he’ll get a lesson in ‘anti-Semitism.’

    [”The justification for the existence of the State of Israel is the prevention of the next Holocaust. Every threat is a threat to survival, every Israel-hating leader is Hitler. And the world, the world is divided into two. The ‘Righteous among the Gentiles’ on the one hand and anti-Semitic Nazis on the other.”]

    What’s he saying?

    If you’re not blindly in love with Israel you’re a nazi? No wonder people are turned off to all things Jewish.

    And I guess this make Trump a “righteous Gentile?” Not according to James Comey!

    And don’t look for photo-ops of Trump on Mount Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments.

    What better backdrop for Trump to quote, “Thou shalt not steal.”

    Scratch that too.

    No US hack has the political pluck to charge criminals like Netanyahu with theft of Palestinian property in order to create a ‘Jewish’ State.

    Not just a stolen state, but an apartheid state.

    Jimmy Carter said it, and Alan Dershowitz had him banned from the Democratic National Convention.

    Richard Falk said it too who wrote most of the charge of apartheid against Israel for the UN.

    The Jews scratched that. They’ve got a real tough time with facts, you know.

    So they call Richard Falk a “self-hating Jew.”

    Does that mean the reverse that a “self-loving Jew” is better?

    We’re supposed to love God not ourselves.

    I’m not sure how Trump fits into all this.

    He’s said many times how much he loves Israel.

    I never heard him say he loves God, have you?

    Dear Real Jew News Family,

    Very few are donating to me. Click and Pledge is my only venue to receive regular donations now that PayPal BANNED me from receiving donations. This is after some seven years of using their donation services.

    I’m in SERIOUS trouble.

    (I also now have Patreon but this venue is very slow going.)

    What has happened is that the MANY monthly-recurring donations that came in automatically via PayPal is OVER.

    This is a BIG BLOW. (I was teetering at the edge when I had PayPal, but now that it has BANNED me, I need to recover my funding base.)

    Sadly, only a few have reverted their monthly-recurring donation to my Click And Pledge venue @ https://co.clickandpledge.com/sp/d1/default.aspx?wid=40066

    * Obama, the homo pervert, can go around the world giving JEW World Order speeches at $3 million a crack. I give speeches on YouTube EXPOSING the JEW World Order and go into debt.

    FOR ME TO CONTINUE I’m requesting special financial assistance via donations during this crisis period…(of which, Christ WILL deliver me.)

    PLEASE CONSIDER floating me a loan for $5,000 or $10,000 and I will arrange a 12 month repayment with a notarized IOU.

    Only one way to counter the Deep State… that’s with the Deep State Militias.

    If Trump gets impeached or assassinated that will certainly happen.

    It’s amazing how the uninvited illegal war aggressor US keeps calling the Syrian Armed Forces “pro-Assad,” as if they weren’t actually Syrian citizens and authorized allied fighting forces defending their own country.

    Amazing timing to kick off Trump’s Middle East/Vatican grand tour where in Riyadh, since Trump can’t go to Mecca, he can ink a gazillion dollar arms deal instead for the Jewmerican military-industrial prosperity gospel.

    Just ask the millions of starving Yemenis under the gentle ministrations of the war criminal Saudis.

    I’m sure it’s a coincidence.

    [Arrogant & Obnoxious] US air strikes pound pro-Assad forces in Syria

    The U.S. military launched fresh air strikes against pro-Assad troops in Syria after they ignored repeated warnings from both coalition and Russian forces, officials told Fox News Thursday.

    The Syrian forces, in several vehicles including at least one tank, were near the Jordanian border [on Syrian territory] and deemed a threat to coalition partners [US-backed and trained Southern Front militant groups who have not signed a safe-zone cease-fire, and were likely the ones who rejected the Astana cease fire agreement] on the ground, a Pentagon official said.

    They were repeatedly ordered to stop their advance toward a de-escalation zone, but ignored the warning, officials said. [Illegal US invaders order the legitimate SAA on Syrian sovereign territory to stop their advance towards a so called “de-escalation zone” which the Pentagon has unilaterally declared, and is no part of the Astana cease-fire agreement as the US is not a signatory].

    “The coalition commander assessed the threat and after shows of force didn’t stop the regime forces and those forces refused to move out of the deconfliction zone, the commander on the ground called for the air strike as a matter of force protection,” a senior U.S. defense official told Fox News.

    Another military source told The Associated Press it appeared the Syrian forces were poised to attack an area that included U.S. advisers.

    “They were building a fighting position” about 55 kilometers from a U.S.-coalition base close to At Tanf, where advisers train members of the Syrian Democratic Forces and Syrian Arab Coalition, the second official said.

    [55 kilometers is about 35 miles away. That’s pretty far for ground forces to be some kind of threat.]

    Defense Secretary James Mattis briefly addressed the strikes Thursday during a meeting with Swedish Defense minister Peter Hultqvist.

    “We’re not increasing our role in the Syrian civil war but we will defend our troops, and that is a coalition element made up of more than just U.S. troops, and so we’ll defend ourselves,” Mattis said. “If people take aggressive steps against us, and that’s been a going in, a policy of ours for a long time.”

    The U.S. and Russia, which is allied with the pro-Assad forces, have established buffer zones around their separate areas of operation to avoid collateral damage. Each side has agreed to notify the other if the deploy forces within the buffer zones.

    In this case, an official told The Associated Press, Russia tried multiple times to contact the Syrian forces. It was at that point that U.S. and coalition jets escalated their warnings.

    “We conducted a show of force. We conducted warning shots. All to no avail,” the official said.

    The American strikes were the first against Assad positions since the Pentagon rained 57 Tomahawk missiles on the Shayrat air base near Homs. But the strikes confirmed Thursday were believed to be the first targeting Syrian personnel.

    The attack on forces does not reflect an escalation, the Pentagon official said.

    “There is no change in policy,” the official said.

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/05/18/us-air-strikes-pound-pro-assad-forces-in-syria.html

    But we’ll do the hell what we want, anyway, for the sake of Israel. There have been several strikes on Syrian armed forces personnel and defensive posts, but the Pentagon lied and said those were mistakes. At least the Pentagon is being honest, now.

    Syria will be the graveyard of the United States of Israel imperialism.

    Al Masdar News: Details of US attack on Syrian military in southern Syria

    By Leith Fadel - 18/05/2017

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition attacked a Syrian military convoy traveling through the southeastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, today, the Pentagon reported.

    The Pentagon claimed a Syrian military convoy was heading towards their positions, when they decided to issue a warning; this was ignored, so the Coalition attacked the convoy.

    Al-Masdar reached out to the Syrian military for details regarding today’s attack by the U.S. Coalition; so far, this is what’s known:

    The U.S. Coalition warplane entered Syrian airspace from the Jordanian border

    A convoy of five T-62 tanks were hit by the U.S. Coalition

    Two tanks were destroyed

    A Shilka was damaged

    Six military personnel were killed and another three were wounded

    Convoy consisted of soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), National Defense Forces (NDF), Hezbollah, and Imam Al-‘Ali Battalions

    Syrian Arab Army (unofficial Facebook)

    43 mins ·

    Admittedly, the Syrian Desert does not have any medium-range and/or low altitude air defenses, and the only low altitude air defenses were deployed with SAA forces and it is very short range that it did not cover the para-military advancing.

    However, when the US-Led Coalition jets attacked, they were forced to increase their altitude by ground AA fire, which then got them painted by Syrian long-range air defenses, before they instantly changed route and left the Syrian airspace.

    The Defensive deployment and measures taken by the forces on the ground prevented a massacre; and if it was not for the chain of events that happened the attacking jets would have continued their aggression but they were forced out, and SyAAD is in no position to shoot down any jet outside of Syrian Airspace at the time being.

    There is much to what happened than what they shared, and until the Syrian command shares an official statement we are in no position to share anything beyond this post.

    One of the top priorities of the US-NATO-GCC coalition proxy headchoppers throughout the war, especially the early stages, was to degrade and destroy as much of the mobile Syrian Arab Army Air Defenses as possible, particularly in the southern Syrian desert where their main strategic importance was originally against Israeli aggression.

    Israel and Syria are still in a technical state of war, and Syria has scrupulously adhered to the decades old ceasefire while Israel has not.

    The unprovoked US airstrike on al Shayrat military airbase was not only an illegal act of aggressive war, it officially marks the start of an US-Syria undeclared war.

    If this latest unprovoked action indeed happened in a designated cease-fire zone, then it is the US that is the violator, and not the Syrians.

    ~~~*~~~

    CNN gleefully crows:

    With Latest Airstrikes, US Signals to Iran: Containment is Back

    The U.S.-led coalition against ISIS waged a series of airstrikes against a military convoy of loyalists to the Syrian regime, CNN has confirmed.

    This marks only the second time in the history of the 6-year conflict that American warplanes have intentionally targeted Iranian proxies in Syria [or so they publicly admitted].

    The convoy appears to have consisted not of regular Syrian army soldiers but of international Shia militiamen [CNN omits a little detail that these “international Shia militia men” are lawful and invited Syrian ally volunteer paramilitary forces officially under the authority of Damascus, and are therefore “government forces”, more broadly, Syrian armed forces.]

    According to a U.S. defense official, a convoy of 20 pro-regime vehicles was headed toward al-Tanf, a military base on the Syrian-Jordanian border, on Wednesday night.

    Al-Tanf [which is in sovereign territorial Syria], which [Damascus allied] Russian warplanes bombed a year ago in two successive airstrikes, is occupied by [illegal invaders and squatters] U.S. and British Special Forces that are advising an anti-ISIS Syrian rebel group known as Maghawir al-Thawra, or the Commandos of the Revolution [now under the umbrella of the US-owned Syrian Defense Forces].

    Thirteen of the vehicles apparently breached the “de-confliction zone” around the base, an area that the coalition has communicated to Moscow to stay well clear of.

    [Seems to me, the “deconfliction zone” has to do with aerial operations. When did it start meaning the Syrian Arab Armed Forces were prohibited from deploying ground troops on their own territory? And the question is still up in the air as to whether any of the US-back militias have signed on to the cease-fire, and whether or not some of these US coalition backed groups aren’t just the ever shapeshifting Al Qaeda/Nusra/Daesh?]

    U.S. warplanes were first scrambled in a “show of force” against the oncoming convoy. But then five vehicles kept approaching, coming within 29 kilometers of the base when they were finally hit by U.S. aircraft.

    The coalition confirmed that the convoy posed a direct threat to “U.S. partner forces” — “despite Russian attempts to dissuade pro-regime movement” toward the base.

    The strike marks the first time that the Pentagon has offered aerial protection to its Arab proxies under assault from pro-Syrian militias.

    Containing Iran

    Iran is thought to have expansionist ambitions, and these ambitions have begun to chafe under a slowly increasing U.S. hard power deployment in the region, opposition sources have told CNN.

    Tlass Salameh, the commander of the Lions of the East Brigade, said that his men are located 20 kilometers from al-Tanf. The Lions of the East receive support from a covert CIA program designed to train and arm vetted Syrian rebel groups, according to Salameh.

    Recruits of that program are allowed to fight the Syrian regime and its allied militias, including those imported from Lebanon and Iraq and beholden to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps’ Quds Force.

    On Monday, Iran’s state-run Fars News Agency claimed that Lebanese Hezbollah, a prominent IRGC-QC proxy, had deployed “12 regiments with 1,000 fighters” to southern Syria “to face the US-backed militants in al-Tanf border crossing.”

    “The regime is bombing us in 25 to 30 raids on a daily basis. Russia hit us once or twice,” Salameh told CNN. “We have a post in Mafraq Kabid on the Damascus-Baghdad highway, which is now controlled by the Iranian and [Lebanese] Hezbollah militias.”

    That transnational highway is crucial to Iranian plans to construct a ground corridor, or land bridge, from Tehran all the way to Mediterranean coast.

    Rebel sources confirm a report published this week by Britain’s Guardian newspaper to that effect, noting that the original route for this corridor has recently shifted from northern Syria, running through the heartland of Syrian Kurdish territory, to Sunni Arab tribal south of the country.

    The outlet suggested that the change of latitude owed to a growing presence of U.S. troops and U.S.-run military installations the north, used by various anti-ISIS forces.

    Partition of Syria

    Concerns over the long-term implications of the U.S. presence, for example, led the regime to oppose an expanded role for the Syrian opposition in the fight against ISIS, especially in Raqqa, the terror group’s de facto capital.

    Now, sources say, Damascus and Tehran are keen to preempt any such American deterrent in the south, along the new route for a land bridge — even if doing so slows or retards the coalition’s war against ISIS.
    http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/18/world/us-syria-airstrikes/index.html

    There you have it.

    Nothing says “containment of Iran” like attacking Syrian government and paramilitary forces inside the territorial boundaries of their own sovereign country.

    All for the glitter of the tyrannical headchopping Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and to Make Israel Greater Again — the Saudis old new best friend.

    The small detachment of the Syrian Arab Army and allies pounded by American air strikes are to be heralded for their valor.

    Any forces openly hostile displaying dictatorial arrogance to the legitimate forces of sovereign Syria will inevitably be reaping that which they sow.

    Can’t any goy soldier worth his salt out there (Syria) not feel respect and admiration for Assad’s soldiers with all what they have gone through?

    Mattis/McMaster & co. stick your chests out, utter & conduct your arrogant threats, it will be Him on High who bloodies your noses!

    Yes, indeedy. Stupid is, as stupid does.

    There’s no mistaking this one, unless Erdogan’s instructions to deliver baskets of Turkish Delights and other goodies to the protesters was misconstrued.

    Adviser or security speaks to someone inside the vehicle. It appears that the diplomatic license plate may have been removed as no lettering is apparent, and what is shown is an oddity.

    Advisor walks down stairs and speaks to a Turkish security person, who then walks up towards the protest, and a few seconds later the protest escalates.

    Erdogan cannot claim that he was not in the vehicle because towards the end, he most visibly and unmistakably exits the black car, and stands to watch the melee.

    I can’t wait to hear the neo-Ottoman Sultan’s lip-flapping excuses on this one.

    Al Masdar News: VIDEO: Erdogan personally orders Turkish security guards to beat up protesters on US soil

    DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:50 A.M.) – On Thursday, Turkish Prime Minister Erdoğan unleashed his henchmen on around 50 anti-government protesters, injuring eleven people outside the residence of the Turkish ambassador in Washington according to official sources.

    American demonstrators protested against Ankara’s policies in Iraq and Syria amid a meeting between Donald Trump and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, two staunch NATO allies.

    Now, footage has emerged from a new angle showing the vehicle where Erdoğan sat on the back seat.

    At 0:13, an advisor appears to be given an important message. Seconds later, Turkish security guards begin beating up civilians in broad daylight:

    Footage captured from another angle reveals #Erdogan orders the attack on peaceful DC protesters directly (at 0:13).

    The State Department condemned the attack as an assault on free speech and warned Turkey that the action would not be tolerated. “We are communicating our concern to the Turkish government in the strongest possible terms,” said Heather Nauert, a State Department spokeswoman.

    The initial rush devolved into several smaller skirmishes as uniformed police officers, some in helmets and swinging collapsible batons, struggled to restore order.

    Washington Examiner:

    Video: Turkish president watched attack on D.C. protesters

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan watched his security detail attack protesters outside the Turkey’s embassy to the United States on Tuesday.

    The video, published by the U.S.-backed Voice of America’s Turkish Service, shows Erdogan’s vehicle parked outside of the embassy as the protest unfolded.

    It provides a clear but limited view of at least two burly, jacketed men beating protesters.

    As police sirens approach, Erdogan gets out the vehicle, buttons his suit jacket and walks into the Turkish embassy. The incident has outraged some American leaders.

    “I’d throw the Turkish ambassador out [of the country],” Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain told MSNBC.

    Turkish Ambassador Serdar Kilic was summoned to the State Department for a personal rebuke on Wednesday, following a public condemnation of the violence by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s spokeswoman.

    “Violence is never an appropriate response to free speech, and we support the rights of people everywhere to free expression and peaceful protest,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Wednesday. “We are communicating our concern to the Turkish government in the strongest possible terms.”

    Hofjude (Court Jew), or de facto prime minister, if you prefer, Jared Kushner personally called the head of Lockheed to get a better arms deal for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

    Jew York Times is very proud of the Trump-Kushner Jewish Mishpacha.

    ~~~*~~~

    Jew York Times

    WASHINGTON — On the afternoon of May 1, President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, welcomed a high-level delegation of Saudis to a gilded reception room next door to the White House and delivered a brisk pep talk: “Let’s get this done today.”

    Mr. Kushner was referring to a $100 billion-plus arms deal that the administration hoped to seal with Saudi Arabia in time to announce it during Mr. Trump’s visit to the kingdom this weekend.

    The two sides discussed a shopping list that included planes, ships and precision-guided bombs.

    Then an American official raised the idea of the Saudis’ buying a sophisticated radar system designed to shoot down ballistic missiles.

    Sensing that the cost might be a problem, several administration officials said, Mr. Kushner picked up the phone and called Marillyn A. Hewson — the chief executive of Lockheed Martin, which makes the radar system — and asked her whether she could cut the price.

    As his guests watched slack-jawed, Ms. Hewson told him she would look into it, officials said.

    Mr. Kushner’s personal intervention in the arms sale is further evidence of the Trump White House’s readiness to dispense with custom in favor of informal, hands-on deal making.

    It also offers a window into how the administration hopes to change America’s position in the Middle East, emphasizing hard power and haggling over traditional diplomacy.

    The Trump administration is expected to frame the deal, worth about $110 billion over 10 years, as a symbol of America’s renewed commitment to security in the Persian Gulf.

    But former officials pointed out that President Barack Obama, whose arms sales to Saudi Arabia totaled $115 billion, had already approved several of the weapons in the package.

    “Both sides have an incentive to herald this as a new era in Gulf cooperation,” said Derek H. Chollet, who served as assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs under Mr. Obama. “I see this as largely continuity.”

    What has changed, Mr. Chollet said, is that the House of Saud is now dealing directly with a member of the Trump family. “It’s quite normal for them to sit down with the son-in-law of a president and do a deal,” he said. “It’s more normal for them than any previous administration.”

    Dear The Englishman,

    Damascus isn’t taking this lying down.

    There is still US-backed al Qaeda/Nusra under whatever aliases they are operating under now in southern Syria, and in the hodge-podge of the dozens, if not hundreds, of Syrian militias tied up like a Gordian Knot operating as coalitions under the umbrella of the FSA/Southern Front, some are allied to al Qaeda, fighting against ISIS.

    Facilitated by the Russian MOD’s Russian Centre for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in the Syrian Arab Republic, along with reconciliation and amnesty of hundreds of Damascus essentially signs bilateral cease-fire agreements for de facto safe zones, with each organized opposition militias composed of Syrian citizens in various areas who are not willing or ready yet to surrender to Syria’s Reconciliation and Amnesty program.

    They will make no agreements with al Qaeda & Daesh at all, and any ethnic Syrian militias entwined in alliances with them have to decide if they will separate from the international terrorists in order to sign the ceasefire agreement and receive protection of the cease fire agreements.

    ~~~*~~~

    Anyway, back to the Syria-Iraq battlespace from Al Masdar News:

    DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:15 A.M.) – On Thursday evening, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) sent over a dozen technicals to the Damascus-Baghdad highway to reinforce contingents bombed by the United States Air Force earlier in the day.

    The newly arrived SAA reinforcements will spearhead a drive towards the Al-Tanf border crossing with Iraq alongside the [Syrian] National Defence Forces (NDF), Hezbollah (Lebanese paramilitary), Imam Al-Ali Battalions (Iraqi paramilitary) and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (Syrian paramilitary).

    However, government forces must stiffen their salient east of Damascus and deploy anti-aircraft units if they are to avoid renewed attacks from US jets and US-trained Free Syrian Army proxies lurking in the vast Syrian desert.

    Meanwhile, SAA units are also advancing against FSA rebels in eastern Sweida, capturing a large swath of rural territory on Thursday.

    Over 100 SAA soldiers have been killed by US airstrikes, mostly at Deir Ezzor, over the 12 months. Nevertheless, the SAA is yet to conduct a single direct hostility against US troops whom are present in both northern and southern Syria despite vocal objections from Damascus.

    Drumpf gets to put on the funny little cap, some private schmoozing sessions with World ZOG Talking Heads… but 10,000 Soldiers for the Entourage in IsraHell?

    Is that where the latest Multi-Billion Usury Fleecing went to? You can bet your Frankenshekels that his pilgrimage to the Holohoax Shrine will be World-Televised with a speech!

    Will he visit The Wall like Rand Paul or Obongo-perhaps shed a few tears? Hang out at the Mossad Masada Complex-get a few bids for Our Wall? Then off to kiss the Pope’s Ring?

    From day one, Drumpf has been giving us the “OK SIGN” to let us know his god has Horns, a Forked Tongue, and a Tail!

    Brilliant Video, dear +BN and you had me on the floor laughing again.

    “Then his pilgrimage to Mecca (scratch that, only Muslims allowed)”.

    Who needs to go to Mecca when closing on Court Jew Kushner’s $100-300 billion dollar arms deals in Riyadh to Make the Jewmerican Military-Industrial Complex Great Again in exchange for Saudi investment in our infrastructure, dangling $200 billion carrot under Trump’s nose? Oy veh, In Trump We Trust.

    “And don’t look for photo-ops of Trump on Mount Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments. What better backdrop for Trump to quote, “Thou shalt not steal.”

    Scratch that too.”

    Yes indeedy, what better backdrop for the proudly unrepentent Trump who boasts of having no real need for forgiveness from Christ, than Mt Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments.

    Ideally, in such a holy and exalted place for Christians, Muslims and Jews, Trump should so shine forth God’s words prohibiting blaspheming His name, worshiping Mammon as an idol, killing (including murder), committing adultery, bearing false witness, and coveting someone else’s house, wife, property and belongings, along with theft.

    He would have to be standing at or near the holy ground of the very ancient Monastery of St Katherine, Great Martyr of Egypt, which has the Fountain of Moses. The monastery is home to a very rare, healthy and unique bramble of the rose family growing from transplants of roots in the Chapel of the Burning Bush.

    In fact, it is the only one of its botanical type in the Sinai Peninsula.

    The author writes that every attempt to transplant this bramble to another location has been unsuccessful. I know of two cutting transplants which have miraculously taken root over the centuries — one in Serbia and one in the US.

    www.aplacecalledroam.com/home/moses-monks-st-catherines-monastery

    Not only that, not mentioned above is that there is a mosque inside the sacred Roman (Greek) Orthodox autonomous monastic archdiocese under the Jerusalem Patriarchate for use by the Sinai Muslim Bedouin tribes who are, and have been, serving and protecting the monastery for 1400 years in obedience to their prophet Mohammed.

    Alas, it just couldn’t happen with Trump attempting to represent something of Christian virtue.

    If Trump tried, surely the ground would open up beneath his feet and swallow him up with a roar and a cloud of dust reaching the skies, and then belch him out in total rejection.

    Which of the Ten Commandments has Trump not broken over and over again? And then turned around and published it in his sordid, narcissistic Mammonite books?

    Dear @no more wars for the jews

    I looked up the website you mentioned. Good stuff. I was particularly struck by the e-book publisher’s mention of Morley Safer, who worked for CBS News, and him being the specific guy who trashed Doug Valentine’s book about the Phoenix Project.

    Canada has produced an endless number of utterly worthless Jews- like the gangster Sammy Bronfman — Al Capone’s boss; Willy Obront–Myer Lansky and Murder Incorporated’s man in Canada; Leonard Cohen with his fascination for “the Beauty of our Weapons” and “first we take Manhattan (a done deal) and then we take Berlin (they are pouring into Berlin at the moment and working on it).

    I was kind of hoping that if I turned over enough rocks I might find a good Jew and Morley Safer was a candidate but now it turns out he is just another standard bearer for God’s loathesome people using his NY Times and CBS connections to shut down freedom of speech and in particular Doug Valentine’s book about the Phoenix Project.

    The Jew boys just don’t know what the truth is and recoil in horror when faced with it. They just can’t do journalism. It just isn’t in them.

    This inherent unreliability is so consistent that it has got to be a DNA related problem.

    Let it be a warning to other cultures. If you bonk your sisters, daughters, first cousins and pre-menepausal grandmothers for thousand of years you will pay the price and your children, like Jared Kushner, will end up as damaged goods…until the very end of time.

    Inshallah. It is written.

    Sure, you can stand against them and perish, but you will perish if you stand with them for certain.

    What do you have to lose anymore? A 12 pack of beer on the weekend after you slaved away all week?

    Your children could lose a father, but look at how the Jews have had them all turn out when they become adults anyway! There is nothing for anyone to lose anymore.

    Mint Press News: As The CIA Resumes Arming Rebels, Trump Escalates Proxy War In Syria

    At the start of the Trump presidency, it looked like the U.S. covert “regime change” war in Syria might be ending, but it has returned, zombie-like, in a slightly different form.

    Back in February, it was quietly reported that the CIA had discontinued its support program to rebels in Syria. A month later, a knowledgeable source from the region disclosed to me that the Trump administration and the Saudi defense minister, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, had agreed during their meetings in mid-March for the Gulf states to re-open supply channels to their rebel proxies.

    This was done, the source said, to keep the Syrian government’s army and its allied Russian air force occupied so that the U.S. and its Kurdish allies could continue dividing northern Syria, establishing a zone-of-influence throughout the lands they recapture from the Islamic State.

    Concurrent with this was a similar effort in the southeast, where U.S. and Jordanian backed forces have been battling ISIS while attempting to establish control over the border with Iraq. The strategy was to use the fight against ISIS as a pretext for establishing a de-facto occupation of Syrian territory, where in the Kurdish-held regions the U.S. has already established multiple military bases and airfields.

    A major motivation behind Russia’s push to establish de-escalation zones, now implemented after a deal was reached with Iran and Turkey, was to free up the Syrian army and Russian air force to launch operations eastward against ISIS and counter the US efforts.

    After the agreement came into effect the Syrian army began operations aimed at reaching the Iraqi border at the al-Tanaf crossing along the Damascus-Baghdad highway and to recapture the ISIS-stronghold of Deir Ezzor further north.

    Both the U.S. and Syria have voiced intentions of taking Deir Ezzor, which is home to strategic oil resources, yet now because of the de-escalation agreement it is highly improbable that the U.S. will be able to stop Syria and Russia from taking the city.

    The parallel measures by the U.S. and Russia signify a race between the two major powers to capture as much territory as possible from the Islamic State before the other side is able to do so.

    Under the guise of “defeating ISIS,” both powers are essentially carving out their own spheres of influence throughout the country, dividing it between U.S.- and Russian-backed regions, leading to an inevitable showdown between the two sides over the fate of the country and its territorial integrity.

    There are also suggestions that some sort of deal has been reached between the two sides.

    The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Syria and Russia have for the first-time voiced support for the U.S.-backed offensive to retake Raqqa, ISIS’s de-facto capital, as long as the Kurds who dominate the coalition make good on their agreement to hand over administration of the city to a local council afterwards, which is expected to return governance back to the Syrian government.

    Yet at the same time, U.S. and Jordanian-backed rebels in southern Syria, supported by a U.S.-led Military Operations Center in Jordan, have been battling with the Syrian army in an attempt to halt their eastward push along the Baghdad-Damascus highway toward the Iraqi border.

    At the border, the al-Tanaf crossing is currently occupied by U.S. Special Forces and British SAS, as well as rebels supported by the Pentagon. Before the de-escalation zones were implemented, Syria and its allies were powerless to stop the U.S.-backed forces from consolidating control of the border and the southeast, yet now are battling against them with the goal of establishing a link between Damascus and the Iraqi border.

    Concurrently on the Iraqi side, the Iraqi government has sent forces supported by the U.S.-backed coalition to secure the border triangle with Jordan and Syria and to meet up with the U.S. forces at al-Tanaf.

    While the U.S. has pressed the Iraqi government to launch this operation, to extend U.S. control along the border and project its influence into southern Syria, Washington has specifically prevented the inclusion of the Iranian-backed Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF).

    [At the same time that the US coalition conducted air strikes on the SAA convoys on the Damascus-Baghdad Road 50 km from the town of Al-Tanf located at the Syrian-Iraqi border, the US coalition struck PMF militias on the same road on the Iraqi side of the border]-Kj.

    At the behest of the U.S., Baghdad has instead sent the PMF on a separate operation to secure the border from ISIS further north to the West of Mosul.The reason was to prevent the Syrian army from linking up with Iranian-backed forces at al-Tanaf and thereby establishing a connection between the governments of Damascus and Baghdad.

    This connection would have allowed Iran to create a land-line linking itself to Lebanon, from which Hezbollah could have been directly supplied. This would have formed a direct geographical connection between the “Shia Crescent” – Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah – which all oppose U.S. efforts at power-projection in the region. [Oh, the horror, the horror…]

    While preventing this connection will not end cooperation between the bloc, allies in the Gulf and Israel will be happy to see forces hostile to Damascus along the Syria-Iraqi border, and Washington would be pleased to establish influence within the heart of the “Axis of Resistance”.

    This also would prevent increased cooperation between Iraq and Syria in the fight against ISIS, cooperation that the government in Baghdad has desired.

    Syria, for its part, is attempting to reestablish its presence in the east. In addition to securing the border, creating a link between itself and al-Tanaf would potentially reopen cross-border trade with Iraq, allowing much needed supplies to re-enter the country while increasing its connection to the government in Baghdad.

    The prospect of Syria’s likely capture of Deir Ezzor also carries important strategic implications. Deir Ezzor is rich in oil-reserves, and ISIS’s ability to control and sell its oil had been a major factor in its establishment of a Caliphate.

    Internal Department of Defense documents from 2012 warned that if the extremist opposition was able to establish control over the oil-rich Deir Ezzor and Hasaka regions there was good chance that a “Salafist principality” would be declared, one which could extend across the Iraqi border into al-Qaeda’s old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi; something that transpired a two years later.

    The U.S. and Syria have clashed over Deir Ezzor in the past. In 2016, the U.S.-allied air force attacked the Syrian army stationed there in what the U.S. claimed was a mistake, but the devastating air strike enabled ISIS to advance and nearly eliminated Syria’s presence in the region.

    [The citizens of Deir Ezzor, always pro-government, and the Arab Tribesmen in the countryside publicly declared their personal loyalty to President al Assad some months ago].

    CIA Restarts its Rebel Program

    In addition to the other maneuvers comes the U.S. decision to formally supply the YPG, a coalition of Kurdish factions supported by Arab groups, with weapons to aid their operation to take Raqqa. The U.S. has been arming the YPG all along, yet now that support is out in the open and intensifying.

    This has angered Turkey, a NATO ally, whose main goal in Syria has been to prevent a contiguous Kurdish entity from forming along its borders. The U.S., on the other hand, has allied with the Kurds, who have proven to be their most effective proxies against ISIS.

    However, in April an FSA officer disclosed to Al Jazeera that Turkey and the U.S. were trying to create a unified rebel army between the FSA and the rest of the northern opposition.

    This faltered due to fractional differences, and instead it was agreed to create a unified command structure under the support of a military operations room in Turkey, which is supported by the U.S., Turkey, Western Europe, and the Gulf states.

    In support of this effort the CIA has partially reestablished its rebel-support program that had been frozen since February.

    This raises questions, as one of the groups that had previously been supported, Nouri al-Din al-Zinki, is openly allied with Syria’s al-Qaeda branch, al-Nusra, in the Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) coalition, which Nusra dominates.

    [Nouri al-Zinki were the ones who kidnapped from a hospital and beheaded a sickly, 10-year old Palestinian boy on video. Photos show the IV’s still in the boys arm - Kj]

    Similarly, other groups that have joined this new formation include those that have integrated themselves within Ahrar al-Sham, a hard-line Salafist group with an extreme Islamist vision for the future of Syria.

    Although it has also fought in alliance with Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham has succeeded to a degree in portraying itself as moderate. Despite quarrels and flare-ups, Ahrar al-Sham remains allied to Nusra and maintains good relations with the group, as they are integral partners and together dominate the opposition.

    In reality the FSA is a chimera, as it is completely integrated underneath a command structure dominated by al-Qaeda and its allies. Not surprisingly then, the FSA commander stressed that this new alliance would fight the Syrian army and not against HTS or Nusra.

    According to Syrian analyst Ahmad Aba Zeid, it is possible that the U.S. decision to reopen the CIA program was related to negotiations with Turkey concerning U.S. support for the Kurds and the operation to take Raqqa.

    Turkey had demanded that the U.S. abandon the Kurds and instead use Turkish-backed rebels. Turkey opposes the ongoing Kurdish-U.S. alliance.

    President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has recently gone so far as to directly attack the YPG, which operates alongside U.S. Special Forces, compelling Washington to send its own troops to the front lines to stop further aggressions.

    It is possible that the U.S. agreed to unfreeze the CIA program and aid the Turkish-backed rebels as a consolation for choosing the Kurds to take Raqqa.

    In this context, Turkey’s involvement in the de-escalation zones agreement raises further questions.

    Since the de-escalation zones allowed the Syrian army and Russia to directly counter U.S. maneuvers in the east, it is possible that Turkey signed on to the agreement to limit the success of the U.S. in its support for the Kurds and the territory the Kurdish factions have been able to acquire as a result.

    [Or Sunni neo-Sultan Erdogan can do what he does best, stab Russia and Iran in the back pushing in his pet FSA proxies, Syrian Turkmen and pan-Turkic gangs and foreign Sunni mercs into the de-escalation (cease-fire) zones that Turkey is guarantor of-Kj].

    After all, the FSA source said that the CIA specifically told the rebels not to attend the Astana talks, where the agreement was signed, and without Turkey the negotiations would never have gone through.

    If this is true, the U.S. decision to overtly intensify its support for the Kurds could have been a shot aimed against Turkey for signing onto the agreement.

    It is difficult to decipher exactly how this has all played out, yet it is clear that despite differences the U.S. and Turkey are continuing to work together to support the rebels against the Syrian government.

    In the meantime, General Joe Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters on Thursday that he believes the NATO defense chiefs he met with this week agree that they should examine the possibility of the international alliance assuming an active role in the ongoing fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

    Currently, all 28-member states that make up the NATO organization are already involved in the fight against ISIS worldwide, but the organization itself remains uninvolved.

    There are currently some pockets of military personnel operating under the auspices of NATO in Iraq, but their efforts are solely in capability building with the Iraqi military.

    So far…

    AzerNews: The North Atlantic alliance excludes the possibility of direct military operations in Syria, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said upon arrival at the EU Council on Defense in Brussels.

    “It is very important to understand that NATO does not take part in any military operations, and there were no inquiries about it,” he said, answering journalists’ questions, TASS reported.

    At the same time, he stressed that NATO will continue to support the coalition against the terrorist group ‘Islamic State’ (IS) in Syria and Iraq.

    “NATO must continue to support the coalition, regardless of whether we formally join the coalition,” Stoltenberg said.

    All members of the 28-alliance are already members of the anti-IS coalition, though NATO itself formally isn’t.

    The decision on the issue of whether NATO will become a part of coalition is expected to be taken at the summit of the alliance scheduled for May 25 in Brussels.

    NATO currently provides support with AWACS surveillance planes and with training in Iraq, in addition to what its member nations provide individually.

    The U.S. under President Donald Trump is keen for a greater emphasis on NATO fighting terrorism.

    The Government of Germany has so far been categorically against NATO joining coalition in fight against ISIS.

    As a justification for its position, it stated that NATO’s participation would intensify conflicts in the region or, at the very least, will complicate the search for a peaceful settlement.
    www.azernews.az/region/113369.html

    Stoltenberg is using some weasel words about NATO’s involvement along the lines of being a little bit pregnant, and Germany is ignoring the baby bump.

    So, we’ll see how much they change their tune after the Trumpean Grand Tour of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (leading light in human rights now, dontcha know), the KSA’s out of the closet long time best friend, Israel, and the Vatican City-state.

    Trump’s Saudi Trip Should Not Be to Clinch Arms Deal But to End Yemen War

    President Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia is designed to highlight his “art of deal” by clinching a massive $100 billion arms deal. But instead of using his presidency to be a salesman for the arms industry, Trump should be a statesmen for the suffering Yemenis. He should use his visit to press for a ceasefire and negotiations to end the conflict in Yemen.

    This is not the first time American politicians have been pushing Saudi arms sales. U.S. weapons dealers have been selling weapons to the kingdom for decades. Sales reached a new climax under President Obama, as Saudi Arabia became the largest purchaser of U.S. weapons. The Obama administration bragged that it had sold $115 billion dollars worth of weapons during its eight years.

    Trump, with just four months under his belt, seems anxious to outdo Obama’s record. His $100 billion deal could mushroom into $300 billion over the next decade. Amnesty International has urged Trump not to sign off on new weapons sales, warning the weapons could be used to devastate more civilian lives in Yemen and could “implicate your administration in war crimes.”

    The war in Yemen is now in its third year and has resulted in an epic tragedy of destruction and starvation. Twenty people are dying every day, many of curable diseases because barely 45 percent of the health facilities are functioning. A UNICEF report shows over 400,000 Yemeni children suffering from severe acute malnutrition, and a child dying every 10 minutes from malnutrition, diarrhea and respiratory-tract infections.

    Jan Egeland, head of the Norwegian Refugee Council and one of the few foreigners to recently visit Yemen called the war “a colossal failure of international diplomacy” and said the crisis is now “of biblical proportions.” He pleaded with the U.S. government to get a real peace process going.

    Alas, this isn’t found in the Trumpean unholy scripture of The Art of the Deal. There’s no money in ending the Yemen war. It won’t make the United States of Israel Great Again.

    And Why is Saudi Arabia bombing its own people?

    Russia Today: That question has been asked over the course of the past week. The answer is rather straightforward. The unprovoked aggression being carried out against Awamiya and Musawara in the eastern Qatif province is happening because these people are Shia.

    As shocking as that may seem to people who live outside the Middle East, let me shock you further and tell you more about the laws and policies of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) that restrict religious freedom, where the government generally enforces these restrictions. [Or as the Israeli Jews call it when they periodically escalate war on the Palestinians in Gaza, “mowing the lawn”.]

    History repeating itself in eastern province

    The unrest or rather warfare in the Shia-inhabited eastern province of Al Qatif is not a new occurrence. This has been happening for decades, back to the late 70s.

    Since Al-Hasa and Qatif provinces were conquered and annexed into the Emirate of Riyadh in 1913 by Ibn Saud, Shia in the region have experienced state oppression. Unlike most of Saudi Arabia, Qatif and much of the eastern province has a Shia majority.

    The region is also of key importance to the Saudi government due to it both possessing the bulk of Saudi oil reserves, as well as the main Saudi refinery and export terminal of Ras Tanura, which is situated close to Qatif.

    Trump’s hypocrisy is stunning, but not surprising. The international silence is incredible about the Saudis bombing their own citizens, but they’ll bend over backwards to try to hang Dr. al Assad with their lies and falsifications supporting the White Helmet/Al Qaeda grisly farce and their bull manure that “Assad bombs his own people”.

    Wahabi Saudis are welcoming Trump by bombing and shooting minority Shi’ites in the KSA. Why not? Trump has proven himself to be a war criminal in his first 100 days.

    GOD ALMIGHTY is not an oppressor.

    He gives man free will. Free will to choose. The Jews being a greedy/controlling lot have chosen that they would prefer to just “handle” things as they see fit and essentially play their own “g-d”, but there are consequences to poor decisions in life!

    For the Jews to claim they are “g-d’s chosen” people when they have been hated for 2K+ years by most and have essentially created their own hell on earth is absurd.

    They just want it both ways, but you cant serve mammon and GOD at the same time. It is becoming apparent that their time is of reckoning is once again, and finally close at hand!

    GOD ALMIGHTY gave man free will, but the disobedient Jews of today’s arrogance just gets in the way and if they don’t accept Jesus Christ as their Messiah/Saviour - there WILL be Hell to pay!+

    For my part at least you have the puzzle piece correctly placed & altogether.

    Since up till now I could not understand the drive to blacken Trump’s connection to Putin/Russia.

    Pre election Quote “I/we wanna be friends with Putin/Russia,would be great would it not?”

    No Donald,’tis not the ideal of CHRISTian Russia, respected leaders such as Lavrov and Putin you wish to partner with, ’tis the organised crime (mainly repugnant Jews) figures you desire to cultivate in your loathsome sordid greed focused world.

    Time is not on your side Donald, your history in Scotland, dirty tricks, Michael Forbes, Alex Salmond (oh boy could he tell a story) your very demeanour these days with your hunched shoulders you will not be able to hide what you really are.

    Not only a hostage to fortune are you, but well & truly snared by the you know who.

    On reflection though, you have done your country one great service Donald, you killed off Killary!

    Erdogan got away with ordering his thugs to brutally beat and kick Turkish Americans, most of them up in years, protesting him with absolutely no pushback from the White House.

    Other leaders in the Middle East surely have taken notice.

    The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not allow political protests whatsoever, and will brutally suppress any form of public dissent.

    Trump will think it’s paradise. No annoying American protestors! The Saudis will have Trump’s face plastered on billboards and posters everywhere, they will make sure to have adoring crowds welcoming Trump and scarfless Melania, and be treated lavishly like royalty.

    The UN absurdly appointed Saudi Arabia on women’s rights panel. I suppose to show how serious they are about women’s rights outside of their own despotic kingdom, the Sauds won’t make issue of Melania not wearing a head scarf.

    Trump is walking on red carpets everywhere.

    Haaretz: Trump’s First Foreign Trip: President Leaves Scandals Behind to Meet With Arab Leaders in Riyadh

    Trump just landed in Saudi Arabia. Here’s what’s his visit will focus on, and what he hopes to achieve

    WASHINGTON - When President Donald Trump took off from Washington on Friday for his first foreign trip since entering office, no one expected that just hours after his departure, the trip would turn into the third, or maybe even fourth, item on the national news agenda.

    A number of breaking stories that emerged on Friday evening, all of them having to do with the mess surrounding Trump, Russia and the FBI, took over the headlines, all of that while Trump and his most senior advisers were in the air. 

    For any American president, the first long trip abroad is always an important moment.

    It is used to set ambitious goals for the next three and a half years in office, and helps craft the president’s relationship with foreign leaders, as well as his image as a statesman, both in the U.S. and on the world stage.

    Trump’s trip, which began Saturday morning as he landed in Saudi Arabia, not only fits all the criteria mentioned above, but in fact, carries an added weight of importance and significance for the 45th president.

    He is headed for a week-long tour that will include stops in four countries (not including the Vatican and the Palestinian Authority) and meetings with over a dozen world leaders – all of that, while his political standing at home is under attack, and his future seems increasingly uncertain.

    Stepping away for a grandiose foreign trip during a time of internal crisis in Washington isn’t a totally new invention. “Using the statesmanship and pageantry of a foreign trip to escape domestic troubles is a time-honored tradition, and not only in American politics,” says Tamara Cofman-Wittes, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute and a former deputy assistant secretary of state for Near East affairs.  

    Former President Richard Nixon, she says, “went on a major Middle East swing while the Watergate investigation was boiling” – a trip which also included the first-ever visit by an American president to Israel.

    And the House of Saud can plaster the balm that sooth’s Trump’s egomaniacal soul on really thick while playing him at the same time.

    The Sauds haven’t cared about the Palestinian cause in years, if they ever did. Palestine is but a wedge in the House of Saud’s own Arab League/Middle Eastern regional power politics.

    Haaretz: Saudi King Tells Trump: Convinced You Can Make Progress Toward Israeli-Palestinian Peace

    The Israeli-Palestinian peace process was one of the main issues discussed between King Salman and the U.S. president, Saudi FM says

    Saudi King Salman told U.S. President Donald Trump during their meeting in Riyadh on Saturday that he is convinced in Trump’s ability to make progress toward reaching a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said during a press conference with his U.S. counterpart, Rex Tillerson.

    The Saudis, Jubeir added, are willing to help.

    Jubeir noted that the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians is one of the central issues the two discussed during Trump meeting with King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud.

    He said the king is optimistic about the peace process and praised Trump’s vision and determination to advance it.

    Saudi Proposal to Israel Could Be the Stuff of Trump’s Dream Deal in Mideast

    Arab media’s silence following reports of Saudi Arabia and Gulf States’ plans for normalization with Israel suggests solid foundations.

    Its timing arises from the common interests of Arab leaders and Israel’s right wing

    A silence fell on Arab media outlets after publication of a report about the Gulf States’ plan for partial normalization with Israel. No official response by Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States or Qatar was heard.

    The regular pundits preferred to deal with other matters, as if they had neither heard nor seen the scoop in the Wall Street Journal. The usual government spokespeople in Israel were also apparently struck by a condition affecting the vocal chords.

    When similar reports emerged in the past, official spokesmen, Arab and Israeli alike, would quickly issue a denial. But this time there were no denials either.

    That suggests that there is a solid foundation to the principles of the proposal – at least between Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and the United States.

    On Tuesday, the last details were apparently hammered out between the U.A.E.’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and U.S. President Donald Trump in their meeting in Washington after Trump’s earlier meeting with Mohammed bin Salman, the 31-year-old son of the Saudi king and the de facto ruler of the kingdom.

    The three anchors of the new agreement rest on the granting of permits to Israeli businesses to open branches in the Gulf States, for Israeli aircraft to fly through U.A.E. airspace, and for the installation of direct telephone lines between the two countries.

    This is still not the full normalization that was promised in the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative or its detailed ratification at the Arab summit in April in Jordan.

    But if an official declaration comes from Riyadh on this initiative, it will be worthy of the title “historic,” because for the first time, total withdrawal from all occupied territories is no longer a requirement for full normalization and the end of the conflict.

    Instead, this proposal is a road map, consisting of steps, with the first one making do with Israel’s pledge to freeze construction in the territories.

    The other innovation is that the Gulf States will translate their practical involvement into a language that the Israeli public can understand.

    They might be able to exert local and international pressure on the Israeli government if it decides to reject the initiative.

    Is this the way Trump intends to create his dream-come-true deal for peace between Israel and the Palestinians and if so, why are the Gulf States willing to cooperate now?

    The leaders of most of the Arab countries have much in common with Israel’s right wing. Both sides see Trump as a breath of fresh air after President Barack Obama’s terms in office.

    Both have an interest in curbing Iran’s influence in the Middle East and neither Israel nor the Gulf States have an alternative superpower to the United States.

    Concern over the shattering of the unique relationship created over the decades between the Gulf States, particularly Saudi Arabia, and U.S. administrations, has led to the conclusion that there is no choice but to strengthen ties with an American president who might detest Muslims but understands the language of interests.

    Trump’s trip to Israel might include the first direct flight from Saudi Arabia to the Jewish State, which would be a highly symbolic event.

    Hail, Trumpania! Trumpania rules the sands…

    President Rouhani of Iran was re-elected by a landslide, by the way.

  30. KathJuliane May 20, 2017 @ 10:22 am

    Financial Times:

    “People have realised that their destiny would be determined in this election” — Fatemeh Hashemi, the daughter of one of the founders of the Islamic republic

    President Hassan Rouhani has won Iran’s election, a result that delivers a decisive victory for pro-reform groups desperate to open up the Islamic republic and re-engage with the outside world.

    Hassan Rouhani said Iranians had chosen re-engagement with the outside world over “extremism and violence” after he won a landslide victory in a presidential election he had presented as a referendum on the direction the Islamic republic should take domestically and internationally.

    “Today, Iran is standing taller than at any time before and is ready to expand its relations with the world based on mutual respect and national interests,” Mr Rouhani said in his victory speech.

    “Today, the world knows that Iranians have chosen the path of interaction with the world away from extremism and violence.”

    Mr Rouhani, who sealed Iran’s historic nuclear deal with world powers during his first term, won 57 per cent of the vote. His hardline opponent, Ebrahim Raisi, a senior cleric who was running for office for the first time, garnered 38.5 per cent.

    The poll delivered a decisive victory for pro-reform groups desperate to open up the Islamic republic and use the nuclear deal Tehran signed with six world powers in 2015 to improve foreign relations.

    Mr Rouhani said the vote showed that Iranians had rejected a “return to the past” and wanted to continue on the path of reform.

    After Mr Rouhani spoke, his supporters poured on to the streets of cities across the country. Jubilant crowds sang songs and cheered passing cars while holding Rouhani posters up to the sky.

    “Rouhani’s biggest achievement was to strike the nuclear accord and he had many sanctions lifted,” said Bahareh, a 30 year old software engineer in central Tehran. “Now I trust him more than before and hope he can improve relations with other countries including the US.”

    The crowds called for the release of opposition leaders who have been under house arrest since they disputed the 2009 presidential election results.

    The scale of Mr Raisi’s defeat is a humiliating blow to regime hardliners, with the cleric believed to have enjoyed the backing of the Revolutionary Guards, the judiciary and the conservative clergy — some of the most powerful bodies in the theocratic regime.

    “People have realised that their destiny would be determined in this election,” said Fatemeh Hashemi, the daughter of Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, one of the founders of the Islamic republic. The decisiveness of the victory makes the election “one of the turning points in the Islamic republic’s history,” she added.

    Federica Mogherini, the EU’s foreign policy chief, congratulated Mr Rouhani on Twitter for the “strong mandate” he received.

    She added that the EU was ready to work for the full implementation of the nuclear accord and peace in the Middle East.

    Saeed Laylaz, a reform-minded analyst close to Mr Rouhani’s government, said: “This is a decisive victory for Rouhani and a decisive victory for people who gave the establishment their last warning [at the ballot box] as they call for reforms.”

    In a fierce contest that exposed the polarisation in society and the political establishment, the choice Iranians faced at the ballot box when they voted on Friday was stark.

    Mr Rouhani promised to stabilise the economy, improve foreign relations, allow greater access to information and strive to have the remaining sanctions on the Islamic republic lifted.

    In contrast, Mr Raisi, a former prosecutor-general, sought to reach out to pious and poor voters with pledges of tripling state benefits and reinforcing Islamic values. He gave few hints about his foreign policy preferences. But he criticised Mr Rouhani over the terms of the nuclear deal, saying “begging diplomacy would not help resolve the country’s problems”.

    The commanding win for the incumbent will enhance his influence over the eventual succession to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the 77-year-old supreme leader.

    But a critical issue facing Mr Rouhani is how defeated hardliners react to a big loss. The supreme leader is the ultimate decision maker, while the guards, the clergy and the judiciary wield significant sway in the republic.

    Mr Khamenei said the high turnout was “evidence of the strong pillars of Islamic democracy” and called on the government to “observe national dignity and wisdom” in its foreign relations, a reflection of his concerns that the republic will open up to the west too quickly as a result of the nuclear deal.

    Mr Rouhani is a regime insider who held senior positions in the security apparatus after the 1979 Islamic revolution, and the presidency does have say in the direction of domestic and foreign policy. But he could encounter resistance in terms of the pace and shape of reforms he pushes for.

    Mr Rouhani also faces the challenge of reviving the weak economy and convincing Iranians, particularly in the poorer segments of society, that the nuclear accord will deliver tangible benefits to their lives.

    During his first term, he was credited with improving healthcare, bringing down inflation from a peak of 45 per cent to single digits and stabilising the currency.

    The lifting of many sanctions after the nuclear deal was implemented in January 2016 also meant oil exports doubled and economic growth rebounded after a deep recession.

    But in a country with official youth unemployment at 26 per cent and poverty rising, many Iranians have yet to feel the benefits.

    Iran has attracted a wave of interest from foreign companies since the sanctions were lifted and multinationals, including Boeing, Airbus and Peugeot have reached agreements with Iran. But other companies have taken a wait-and-see approach, with the investment stymied by US financial sanctions related to Iran’s alleged sponsoring of terrorism that remain in place.

    Investor uncertainty has been exacerbated by Donald Trump’s belligerent rhetoric towards Tehran, with the US president warning Iran it is “on notice”.

    Mr Trump on Wednesday said he would continue waiving sanctions that were lifted under the nuclear deal, but added new sanctions related Iran’s missile programme. He is meeting Sunni Arab leaders in Riyadh on Saturday, with curbing Tehran’s regional influence expected to be one of the main focuses of his discussions.

    Iran’s foreign minister Javad Zarif, in a post on Twitter, said, “We derive stability not from ‘coalitions’, but from our people, who, unlike many, do vote. Iranians must be respected and are ready to engage.” 

    His comments were a reference to reports that Mr Trump wants to rally a Sunni coalition against Iran — and the fact the elections are an anomaly in most of the Arab world.

    Al Jazeera: US and Saudi Arabia sign arms deals worth almost $110bn

    US Secretary of State says the arms agreements will help Saudi Arabia deal with ‘malign Iranian influence’.

    The US and Saudi Arabia signed arms deals worth almost $110bn on Saturday, the first day of President Donald Trump’s visit to the traditional US ally.

    US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the arms agreements will help Saudi Arabia deal with “malign Iranian influence”.

    “The package of defence equipment and services supports the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the entire Gulf region,” Tillerson told reporters in Riyadh on Saturday.

    This is “in particular in the face of malign Iranian influence and Iranian-related threats which exist on Saudi Arabia’s borders on all sides,” Tillerson said.

    Al Jazeera’s James Bays, reporting from Riyadh, said that the arms deal would be seen by both signatories as a “win-win”, especially as the deal involved arms that Obama was not prepared to sell to Saudi Arabia, including missile defence systems.

    Donald Trump’s Middle East visit - What to expect

    “I think this is what both sides are trying to project here: a successful meeting and the US relationship with Saudi Arabia returning to the way it was before President Obama,” said Bays.

    “Because certainly the White House says that it feels President Obama ‘abandoned’ Saudi Arabia and this region, and they want the whole world to know that now they are getting things ‘back on track’.”

    The Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir said in the joint press conference with his counterpart Rex Tillerson that the two countries had signed a “joint strategic vision declaration” and hailed the talks as a “truly historic day in the relationship between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States, and we believe the beginning of a turning point in the relationship between the United States and the Arab and Islamic world.”

    The arms agreements are part of a series of wider trade deals. Al-Jubeir said “the total value of those investments is in excess of $380bn,” and claimed the deals would lead to the creation of hundreds of thousands of jobs in the US and Saudi Arabia.

    US conglomerate General Electric announced earlier on Saturday that it had also signed agreements and memorandums of understanding worth $15bn.

    US president receives warm welcome in Riyadh

    The deal came at the start of Trump’s eight-day foreign tour that will also take him to Jerusalem, the Vatican and meetings with leaders in Europe.

    The president and first lady Melania Trump were welcomed by Saudi King Salman as they disembarked at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh on Saturday morning.

    After a welcoming coffee ceremony, Trump and his entourage were brought to the royal court where the president was awarded the Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud, Saudi Arabia’s highest civilian honour.

    Trump held talks with King Salman and was to meet the kingdom’s two crown princes on Saturday, before giving a speech on Islam to leaders of Muslim countries on Sunday.

    For Riyadh the visit is an opportunity to rebuild ties with a key ally, strained under Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama who Sunni Arab Gulf states suspected of a tilt towards their Shiite regional rival Iran.

    The arms sale agreement was just one of a series of deals to be announced during the visit.

    Trump’s speech on Sunday to dozens of Muslim leaders has been touted as a major event - along the lines of a landmark address to the Islamic world given by Obama in Cairo in 2009.

    The speech will be especially sensitive given tensions sparked by the Trump administration’s attempted travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority nations and accusations of anti-Islamic rhetoric on the campaign trail.

    The next leg of Trump’s trip will be Israel. After meeting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, Trump will see Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem, part of his efforts to revive the long-stagnant peace process.

    On Tuesday Trump heads to Rome to meet with Pope Francis. The two men are at odds on everything from climate change to refugee policy, although the pontiff says he will give the US leader an open-minded hearing.

    The president will then meet NATO members in Brussels and attend a G7 summit in the Sicilian town of Taormina.

    Trump, Cabinet Members Join in Traditional Saudi Sword Dance

    President Trump and members of his administration who traveled to Saudi Arabia took part in a traditional “Ardha” sword dance.

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross were spotted linking arms with other Saudi performers during the ceremonial dance. According to videos and reports, Trump joined the dance and was swaying and smiling.

    The dance took place outside the King Abdulaziz Historical Center, The Associated Press reported, before a banquet dinner for Trump and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman at Murabba Palace in Riyadh.

    The festive gathering was part of the extravagant welcome for Trump, his family and senior administration officials during Trump’s first foreign trip as president.

    Hours earlier, Trump received the country’s highest civilian honor, the Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud Medal.

    Trump and King Salman also signed of a pledge to “counter violent extremism, disrupt the financing of terrorism and advance defense cooperation” and a pledge to bolster arms sales worth nearly $110 billion.

    Saudi Arabia King Salman placed the gold medallion, the King Abdulaziz al Saud Collar, around Trump’s neck during a ceremony in the country’s capital of Riyadh. The medallion is considered the kingdom’s highest civilian honor.

    Trump sort of danced the “Ardha,” traditional dance of peace after war.

    Saudis are said to be chanting: “We thank god things came that we had wished for.”

    Ardah, a type of folkloric dance in Arabia, is performed with two rows of men opposite of one another, each of whom may or may not be wielding a sword or cane, and is accompanied by drums and spoken poetry.

    Originally, the “ardah” was performed only by males of tribes of the central Nejd region before going to war, but nowadays it is done at celebrations, weddings, and national and cultural events by males all tribes.

    Methinks this is secretly a Saudi victory dance over Trump.

    I believe I read that the Sauds spent some $70 million to host Trump and his entourage with a lavish display of pomp and circumstance as big as it gets, which certainly pleased Trump to no end, considering himself a legend in his own mind of epic proportions. It includes a Trumpean cavalcade being escorted by Arab mounted cavalry on Arabian steeds, carrying US and KSA flags!

    Melania and Ivanka Trump forgo headscarfs during Saudi Arabia trip, thus making a “bold statement”. In Jan 2015, Trump blasted then First Lady Michele Obama for not wearing a scarf in the KSA:

    “Many people are saying it was wonderful that Mrs. Obama refused to wear a scarf in Saudi Arabia, but they were insulted. We have enough enemies.”
    www.twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/560839957426999297

    Makes no difference. If any Saudi Arabian woman gets any ideas, they will be duly beaten and chastized by the special Saudi religious police.

    In the meantime, Trump ally Roger Stone is livid.

    The Hill: Roger Stone blasted President Trump’s meeting with Saudi leaders on Saturday, arguing part of the royal reception that included the presentation of a gold medallion to Trump made him “want to puke.”

    “Instead of meeting with the Saudis @realDonaldTrump should be demanding they pay for the attack on America on 9/11 which they financed,” Stone tweeted.

    He later shared a picture of Trump getting a royal welcome [receiving the the Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud Medal] tweeting, “Candidly this makes me want to puke.”

    Bro - Just a brief greeting from an old friend and fellow keeper of the truth.

    Have scanned through several of your current YouTube presentations and believe you have gotten even more professional and effective in your deliveries.

    Tried to phone but you have evidently changed phones.

    I am still in the fight although in a lesser capacity. I am still recovering from a stroke but suffered no really bad damage. Once more I have dodged the bullet.

    I would like to believe that the Lord believes I serve some purpose in this endless battle against the suffocating endless evil of the Jews and their bought off scum like Trump.

    Keep up the good and faithful work.

    The battle will NEVER BE WON until a vast number of American sheeple lose their fear and ignorance of so much evil committed by the Jews there.

    Perhaps if they would simply read the book of Jeremiah - CAREFULLY - they would see more of the truth.

    Regards - Joe

    Trump can visit Satan’s butt. He expands the bombings of innocent people to appease his Jew controllers.

    Surely he is a vassal of the devil, but still he is not evil enough for his malevolent masters, and has some of his own cash left the bloodsuckers haven’t stolen yet, thus the invention of phony “scandals” according to protocol.

    Update on PayPal Ban

    Patreon is turning out to be a HUGE failure. Everyone was clamoring for me to get it last month. But since then, only a few are pledging, a dollar here, five dollars there, but mostly dollar pledges, what little there is of it all.

    This past week, with TWO Videos posted, I got ONLY two pledges, one for $1 and one for $5.

    Then I got two EDITS:

    One reducing their $5 pledge to a $1, and the other reducing their $25 pledge to $5.

    I mean, how to get discouraged pronto.

    People keep saying to me, “If everyone donated $1 your financial woes would be over.”

    But everyone does NOT donate a “dollar.” Only a handful out of tens of thousands of viewers with close to 20,000 subscribers “donate a dollar” to my ministry.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I’m in SERIOUS trouble.

    What has happened is that the MANY monthly-recurring donations that came in automatically via PayPal is OVER.

    This is a BIG BLOW. (I was teetering at the edge when I had PayPal, but now that it has BANNED me, I need to recover my funding base.)

    Sadly, only a few have reverted their monthly-recurring donation to my Click And Pledge venue @ https://co.clickandpledge.com/sp/d1/default.aspx?wid=40066

    * Obama, the homosexual pervert, can go all around the world giving JEW World Order speeches at $3 million a crack. I give speeches on YouTube EXPOSING the JEW World Order and go into debt. *

    And, quite frankly, I am in debt. Due to the PayPal ban and low numbers of donations, I just had to borrow money from a credit card offer to barely stay online.

    FOR ME TO CONTINUE I’m requesting special financial assistance via donations during this crisis period…(of which, Christ WILL deliver me.)

    PLEASE CONSIDER floating me a loan for $5,000 or $10,000 and I will arrange a 12 month repayment with a notarized IOU.

    @Greg

    Those photos of Putin visiting the Western Wall are old history.

    I wrote a comment on that in 2009 at this link when Putin was then prime minister:

    http://www.realjewnews.com/?p=432#comment-29157

    The official Russian Orthodox Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem was first established in Palestine the 1840s, and the Russian Church has maintained a significant presence with churches and monasteries in Palestine and Jerusalem since then.

    For over a millenium of Russia’s existence after Prince Vladimir baptized the nation in AD 988, the Holy Land has been the destination of countless Russian pilgrims.

    As church life continues to recover in the former Soviet Union growing numbers of pilgrims from Russia, the Ukraine, and other former Soviet republics are flocking to the Holy Land.

    The two parts of the Russian Orthodox Ecclesiastical Mission share the work of caring for these pilgrims and administering the holy places under Russian Orthodox jurisdiction.

    Essentially, Putin was being diplomatically respectful of local customs as most world figures are. Yarmulke at Yad Vashem, which is a memorial, or like taking one’s shoes off before entering a Middle Eastern or Japanese household.

    Moreover, if you were to visit most Orthodox monasteries, which traditionally values male and female modesty, you might be asked to put on a long sleeve shirt or baggy pants over shorts.

    For certain, Western women in shorts and short sleeve tops touring Orthodox churches and monasteries in Europe, Middle East, and Russia (and many Orthodox places in the Americas) will be required to wear a head covering, long sleeve shirt, and a long skirt, or they won’t be permitted in. Often, spare clothing is kept on hand for this purpose.

    Putin’s first trip to Jerusalem, Palestine and Jordan as president was in 2005 during Orthodox Christian Holy Week of Pascha (”Easter”).

    Putin decided at the spur of the moment to take a walk to pray at the Holy Sepulchre late at night, and his stop at the Wailing Wall was impromptu. It gave Israeli security fits because his FSB team didn’t coordinate with their Israeli counterparts, and the Jews had to scramble to wake up the rabbis responsible for the Western Wall area to meet him there.

    Pictures of Putin at that time show that he’s at some distance away, certainly admiring the edifice construction of “the Wall” along with a handful of his security team, .

    I’ve not ever seen photos of him up close hugging and kissing the Wall praying at it or stuffing notes into the cracks between the stone blocks like our psychophant Judeo-Christians routinely do.

    From what I understand from others who’ve seen the Wall, as an ancient architectural wonder, it was quite a monumental feat of the Roman engineering that Herod used to rebuild the Temple into “the Seventh Wonder of the World” in its day.

    There is a very large body of Russian Israelis in the Jewish state who don’t identify as “Jews” as much as they do being Russian, either culturally or because they have only one Jewish grandparent which Tel Aviv originally formulated in order to boost “Jewish” demographics. They don’t keep kosher and some even eat pork, many of them are, or married to, Orthodox Christians, and who immigrated in a couple of waves–under Soviet persecution in the 1970s and again a major immigration during the 1990s from the Former Soviet States after the fall of the Soviet Union.

    In 1970, the right of entry and settlement was extended to people with one Jewish grandparent and non-Jewish people who were married to Jews, although they were not considered Jewish under Jewish law.

    Wikipedia: “About a million Russians immigrated to Israel, including approximately 240,000 who were not Jewish according to rabbinical law, but were eligible for Israeli citizenship under the Law of Return.

    The number of non-Jews among the immigrants from the former USSR has been constantly rising ever since 1989. For example, in 1990 around 96% of the immigrants were Jews and only 4% were non-Jewish family members.

    However, in 2000, the proportion was: Jews (includes children from non-Jewish father and Jewish mother) - 47%, Non-Jewish spouses of Jews - 14%, children from Jewish father and non-Jewish mother - 17%, Non-Jewish spouses of children from Jewish father and non-Jewish mother - 6%, non-Jews with a Jewish grandparent - 14% & Non-Jewish spouses of non-Jews with a Jewish grandparent - 2%.”

    The Russian Federation today has about 153 ethnicities and four major religions. Technically speaking, there are four “official” historical religions in Russia recognized in the Constitution: Orthodox Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism.

    The smallest of the four is Judaism. There are fewer than 200,000 self-identified religious Jews in Russia today—less than the number of pagans—though the number of Russians from Jewish backgrounds who no longer identify with the religion is much higher.

    Most Russians with Jewish backgrounds range from casual observers to entirely indifferent to their religion, and most especially from the Soviet era identify more as Russian than Jewish.

    The average age of Jews in Russia is 45, too old to give birth to replace themselves.

    And, because of some 100,000 or so Jewish conversions to Orthodoxy in the 19th century, Russians today descended from these “Israelite Christians” may carry Jewish surnames, as they weren’t allowed to change them for census reasons upon baptism. I read somewhere that today, perhaps 10-15% of Russians may have Jewish ancestry because during the atheistic Soviet era, Jewish identity became a matter of ethnic nationality, not religion, and all religions were generally suppressed. There was considerable secular intermarriage between Soviet citizens.

    Now, in Russia, as I understood it some time back at least, that Jews identify ethnically either by nationality (yevrey-from Hebrew; In the Greek East, Εβραίος, the Greek word for Hebrew but translated into English as “Jew” has been used to designate Jews since at least the early Church) or by religion (iudey-Iouda, Juda; zhid is considered to be derogatory, but still used in Ukraine).

    Chabad Lubavitch originated in Western Russia in the imperial era (present day Belarus), then relocated to New York about 1940. It represents an authentic historical Russian Jewish tradition and culture starting from the 18th century.

    The small population of Jews are what remains after a mass exodus that saw more than 2 million Jews leave the countries of the former Soviet Union shortly before and after its collapse, mainly for the United States and Israel.

    Just after the fall of Communism and just prior to his own death, Schneerson sent Rabbi Berel Lazar to represent Chabad in Russia.

    Today, Lazar, who was born in Italy and educated in the United States, is Russia’s chief rabbi. He appears frequently at Putin’s side at public events, and is the leader of the Federation of Jewish Communities (known by its Russian acronym FEOR –Federatsiya yevreyskikh obshchin ), the country’s most important Jewish organization. FEOR serves as a check and balance to organizations of secular Jews. But the title of Russia’s most important rabbi is not an uncontested one.

    Adolf Shayevech, a prominent figure in the community since the late Soviet period, was considered chief rabbi until 2000, and claimed the title as of 2015. The Russian Jewish Congress, the country’s largest secular Jewish organization, also recognizes Shayevech. Yury Kanner, is president of the Russian Jewish Congress and a Russian billionaire.

    Many influential state officers, businessmen, actors of science and culture became members of RJC after its founding in the 1990s. But since Putin came to power in 2000, he has preferred to work with FEOR. Lazar, who is sometimes referred to as “Putin’s Rabbi,” now sits on the country’s public chamber, a government-appointed oversight committee.

    A large part of that is because Chabad is a movement that cultivates ties with political leadership as part of a broader strategy to make a home wherever they happen to be, comparable to the medieval practice of shtadlanut, in which European Jews lobbied local rulers for rights.

    Lazar has been nothing but appreciative, praising Putin publicly as a friend of the Jews and calling Russia “one of the safest places for Jews in Europe.”

    Chabad reached its position of influence because it has some influential backers. The Uzbek–Israeli billionaire diamond magnate Lev Leviev was an early and enthusiastic backer of FEOR. Roman Abramovich is also a backer, donating $5 million to build the Marina Roscha Synagogue.

    In 2011 - 2012 Russian Jewish Congress which has strong ties to Israel, supported the construction of the Israel National Memorial to the Red Army in the city of Netanya — the Victory Monument in Netanya. The RJC donated $500.000 towards the construction of the monument which opened on June 25, 2012. Putin didn’t go there to honor the Jews, he went there to honor former Soviet Red Army veterans who fought in the ‘Great Patriotic War.’

    Putin’s presidential campaign in 2000 was very anti-oligarchical. He basically announced the end of the oligarchs. Putin’s main priority was to make the presidential administration the dominant political institution. However, in reality he did not really want to get rid of the big businesses. What he intended to do was to take control over them and deprive the oligarchs of their political power.

    Putin’s main strategy was to create equidistance in relations between the state and the business. He arranged a meeting with all the prominent Russian oligarchs and introduced the so called “new rules of the game”. These rules could be briefly described by one sentence: as long as the oligarchs paid taxes and did not use their political power, Putin would leave them be.

    Those, who accepted these rules were later very successful. The newly depoliticized Jewish businessmen among them then began to turn to philanthropy, and in a way, they worked out their political impulses through competing with each other through building projects, and philanthropies, and funding such things as the Russian Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in Moscow.

    This center is not a classic holocau$t museum with Elie Wiezel’s face all over it, by the way, but is more about the history and culture of Russian Jewry.

    “The World Health Organization says the Cholera epidemic in Yemen could reach 300-thousand cases within six months.

    A representative of the U- health agency has warned of an extremely high death toll, describing the outbreak as unprecedented. At least 242 people have died of cholera across Yemen over the past three weeks alone.

    Tens of thousands of others have been diagnosed with the disease.

    Humanitarian organizations say Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen and its crippling sea and naval blockade are to blame for the humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen.

    RT: White House removes video showing Israel with pre-1967 borders

    A short video promoting President Donald Trump’s first foreign trip to the Middle East and Europe posted to the White House YouTube channel showed a map of Israel that excluded disputed territories the Gaza Strip, West Bank and Golan Heights.

    On Thursday, the day before Trump’s scheduled departure, the White House posted a video on its YouTube channel, which featured a map of Israel that omitted Gaza, the West Bank and the Golan Heights.

    The short video, which has since been removed, highlighted the five stops Trump is making during his eight-day trip. The White House stated his trip was made to “reaffirm America’s global leadership, continue building key relationships with world leaders, and deliver a message of unity to America’s friends and allies.”

    “I hope this is just ignorance and not policy,” Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said, referring to the video, according to Yedioth Ahronoth, an Israeli newspaper.

    Shaked said she believes Trump will fulfill his promises made during the campaign and move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    Its not the temple anyway–its Fort Antonia.

    In any event the temple was made redundant by Christ’s sacrifice.

    Because Jews refuse to accept this they have become the children of Satan—their actions through out history are evidence of this.

    Its obvious what the Saudi deal with the U.S.G. is.

    By agreeing that oil must be purchased in US dollars (the petrodollar) they guarantee the dollar stability through massive artificial dollar demand which would not otherwise exist.

    But for this demand, the endless deficits of the U.S.G. financed by the endless money printing of the Federal Reserve would result in a massive inflationary spiral with the dollar becoming virtually worthless.

    In addition the slimy Saudis buy up weapon systems that they will never need and which they obviously do not know how to use–what else explains their complete inability to defeat a few under-armed and disorganized (but no doubt heroic) Yemeni tribes!

    The US side of the bargain is that it protects this utterly vile regime both from legitimate outside threats (as ISIS principal financiers they are the enemies of all civilized nations) and an internal uprising.

    Welcome to the real world.

    I think in terms of integrity the following guy is at the top of the list. His name is Doug Valentine and he is the guy Jew boy Morley Safer tried to trash.

    Valentine takes on the both of them and blows them away including Glen Greenwald and Seymour Hirsch, Israel’s greatest asset.

    5/19 Houthi Forces Repelled Another Attack By Pro-Saudi Fighters in Al-Bayda, Launched Ballistic Missile on Saudi Capital

    Houthi forces and the Yemeni Army repelled an attack by forces loyal to Saudi-backed President Mansur Hadi on Al-Makhtabi and Ka’wash bases in the Zi-Na’em area in the Yemeni province of Al-Bayda.

    Houthi forces also targeted the Silat military site in Najran with a Uragan rocket. The Yemeni Army artillery shelled a gathering of the Saudi Army and Hadi’s forces in the northern Khouba area, and in the Harib Nahm district of Marib province.

    The Yemeni military media published a video (LINK) of the May 18 attack on the Umm al-Adab mountain near the Al-Khadraa border crossing.

    Houthi forces captured the mountains and Saudi forces withdrew to the crossing. Houthi fighters seized a lot of weapons from the abandoned Saudi positions.

    Meanwhile, Houthis launched an attack on a gathering of Saudi forces in the border area of Jizan, and claimed the destruction a number of vehicles and bulldozers of the Saudi Army.

    According to local sources, the Saudi attack helicopters attacked the village of Qamar in Jizan with 15 missiles. Saudi Air Force warplanes carried out four airstrikes in the Medi Desert and in Harad.

    Few moments ago, reports appeared that Houthi forces launched a Burkan 2 ballistic missile on the Saudi capital of Riyadh. There are no confirmed reports revealing the impact caused by the missile.

    Russia Insider: Syrian Army Calls US Bluff: Advance Towards Iraq Border Continues

    The US is desperate to create a pretext for direct military intervention in Syria—but Syrian forces and their allies won’t take the bait

    US military presence in Syria is plainly illegal under international law, and arguably even unconstitutional.

    While there are loopholes which allow for limited US military operations without a formal declaration of war, the president cannot initiate a war without congressional approval. But the attack on pro-government forces in southeast Syria on Thursday was just that—an act of war.

    This attack was not intended to deter the Syrian Arab Army from advancing; the US knows that its proxy forces and mercenaries are unable to halt the Syrian Army and its allies as they push towards the border. In order to prevent Syria from reclaiming its own territory and securing its border, the US would need to launch a direct military intervention.

    Of course, Washington would need a pretext for doing so.

    Do you see where this is going?
    Thursday’s attack was a provocation—nothing more. Washington is eager to manufacture a pretext to further increase its presence in Syria.

    So it’s no surprise that the Syrian command and its allies are playing their cards in a calm and calculated way. A military response to Thursday’s attack would have been exactly what Washington wanted and needed.

    It’s hard to say what will come next, but a formation of Syrian troops is approximately 15 km from Al-Tanaf, keeping in mind that Thursday’s strike took place about 20 km away; in other words, the provocation failed to deter the SAA and its allies from advancing.

    Not every loud statement is a true statement, but almost every silent move is a valid one.

    More will be revealed in the coming days; Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made it clear that the US strike against the Syrian Arab Army was a “violation of Syria’s sovereignty”. That may sound like a wimpy response—but don’t be so sure.

    While we’re talking, the #SAA is achieving a big advance near #AlTanaf and on #Damascus #Baghdad highway, Local source: Su-30s noted there.
    9:36 AM - 19 May 2017

    Lavrov’s statement is a reflection of Russian military policy. A Russian Air Force Su-30 was spotted over As-Suwayda province; most likely it was covering the advancing Syrian troops towards Al Tanaf from any foolish hostility.

    Press TV: Thousands protest US participation in Saudi war against Yemen

    Thousands of people have gathered on the streets of Sana’a to protest the US’s participation in Saudi Arabia’s relentless war against Yemen.

    The Saturday mass protests coincided with a trip by US President Donald Trump to Riyadh, in which he finalized an arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth almost $110 billion.

    During the protests, people could be seen holding banners which read. “USA thrives on stealing other nations, killing, crime, and causing destruction.”

    “We are here today to say no for American terrorism. No for American terrorism. No for American terrorism. And we would also say, to the people in Riyadh, what did [the] Saudis achieve in two years and a half? Nothing. They did not achieve anything. Just killing, destruction,” said a protester.

    Another protester stressed that Saudi Arabia “will suffer a humiliating defeat, with or without US and Israeli support.”

    The demonstrators also hailed the ballistic missile attack launched by the Yemeni forces against Riyadh just hours before Trump’s arrival in the Saudi capital.

    Since March 2015, Saudi warplanes have been bombarding Yemen heavily in an attempt to crush the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement and reinstate the resigned president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

    Latest tallies show that the imposed war has so far killed over 12,000 Yemenis and wounded thousands more.

    The Saudi aggression has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.

    Nearly 3.3 million Yemenis, including 2.1 million children, are currently suffering from acute malnutrition, while more than seven million people are grappling with starvation.

    The figures, however, could drastically increase if the Saudi war machine continues to breathe fire on Yemeni people.
    www.presstv.ir/Detail/2017/05/21/522631/yemen-sanaa-saudi-us-trump

    War Lord Trump rewards Saudi Arabia for its ongoing genocide of the Yemenis by war and planned catastrophic policies of deliberate famine, starvation, infrastructure destruction, water contamination, and making the people suffer from war-related diseases and pestilence.

    Al Jazeera:

    Nearly 23,500 suspected cases of cholera have been registered in war-ravaged Yemen in the past three weeks, the World Health Organization said, as the death toll of the outbreak climbed to at least 242.

    “The speed of the resurgence of this cholera epidemic is unprecedented,” Nevio Zagaria, WHO country representative for Yemen, told reporters in a conference call on Friday.

    Zagaria warned that there could be as many as 300,000 cases in the country within six months.

    Last Sunday, a state of emergency was declared in Yemen’s opposition-held capital, Sanaa, after the outbreak killed scores of people over a two-week period.

    The health ministry of the Houthi government announced the measure, saying that “the number of casualties surpassed the normal rates, exceeding the capacity of the health system, which has become unable to contain this unprecedented health and environmental disaster”.

    Humanitarian crisis

    This is the second outbreak of cholera in less than a year in Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest country in the grip of a war between government forces, which are backed by an Arab coalition, and Houthi fighters.

    More than 10,000 people have been killed and millions displaced in more than two years of war, which has also destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure.

    Only a few medical facilities are still functioning and two-thirds of the population are without access to safe drinking water, the UN has said.

    “What is happening today exceeds the capabilities of any healthy health system, so how can we [cope] when we are in these difficult and complicated conditions,” Saba news agency quoted Mohammed Salem bin Hafeedh, Yemen’s health minister, as saying.

    The healthy ministry - after holding talks in Sanaa with Jamie McGoldrick, the UN humanitarian coordinator, and other international officials last week - called on humanitarian organisations and aid donors to help it avert an “unprecedented disaster”.

    “A cholera epidemic late last year petered out but outbreaks are becoming more frequent.

    Sanaa has been worst hit, followed by the surrounding province of Amanat al-Semah, WHO data has shown. Cases have also been reported in other major cities including Hodeidah, Taiz and Aden.

    About 17 million of Yemen’s 26 million people lack sufficient food and at least three million malnourished children are in “grave peril”, according to the UN.”
    www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/05/speed-yemen-cholera-outbreak-unprecedented-170519110837434.html

    Cholera, a waterborne bacterial disease of the small intestine causing acute diarrhea and vomiting, can be readily treated with antibiotics and hydration. But medical treatment is out of reach for many Yemenis.

    Since March 2015, when Saudi Arabia backed one side of Yemen’s civil war, half of the nation’s hospitals have been either destroyed by Saudi airstrikes, occupied by rebel forces, or shut down because there are no medical personnel to staff them.

    A naval blockade — enforced by the Saudis with US help — slows the delivery of aid shipments to Yemeni ports.

    A proposed invasion of the country’s main seaport and cargo terminal has caused most groups to reroute aid shipments to ports farther from Sanaa. As a consequence, a convoy of trucks carrying food, fuel and medical supplies may have to pass through 100 military checkpoints to reach the capital.

    Houthis claim cholera is a US bio attack on Yemen and plastering Sana’a streets with this message. The militias launched a publicity campaign claiming that the epidemic is a bio-attack caused by the Arab coalition of Gulf States with the US standing behind it.

    War-torn Sanaa and the Saudi port seige laid to it is a giant incubator of overcrowding, hunger and poverty, suffering from lack of hygiene resources and an environmental health collapse lacking proper removal of garbage and destruction of water treatment capabilities.

    The Houthis have a right to be “propagandizing” their complaints in Sanaa about suspected bio-warfare.

    The timing of the outbreak & the spread rate are both suspicious, timed as it is just prior to War Lord Trump’s arrival in Riyadh and debut on the Arab world stage. Why now in the 2 year old war and why this fast?

    The photo reads, “Cholera sickness is an American gift from Trump before he visits Saudi Arabia.”

    www.elnahar-news.com/world/405965.html

    The Houthis belong to the Zaidi branch of Islam, also known as Fivers, a sect of Islam almost exclusively present in Yemen.

    Zaydis make up about 45 percent of the population, Sunnis make up 53 percent, and there are also tiny minorities of Muslims who are members of other Shia sects — the Ismaili and Twelver communities.

    Al-Houthi Zaydis are estimated to make up about 30 percent of the population, according to Hassan Zaid, secretary-general of the al-Haq opposition party.

    The Zaydis ruled Yemen for 1,000 years up until 1962. During this time they ferociously defended their independence and fought off foreign powers (Egypt, the Ottomans) who controlled lower Yemen and tried to extend their rule to the north

    The have long asserted that their actions in the civil war are to fight against the expansion of Wahabism/Salafism in Yemen and for the defense of their community from discrimination.

    The US/GCC-recognized Hadi Yemeni government has in turn accused the insurgents of intending to overthrow the regime out of a desire to institute Zaidi religious law, destabilising the government and stirring anti-American sentiment.

    The Hadi government has also accused the Houthis of having ties to external backers, in particular the Iranian government, which is, in fact, minimal.

    In turn, the Houthis have countered with allegations that the Yemeni government is being backed by al-Qaeda and Saudi Arabia. There is, in fact, no theological differences between al-Qaeda and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the differences are political.

    As a radical fundamentalist movement of Salafism/Wahabism, Al Qaeda is anti-monarchist and anti-US military presence on the sacred soil of Mecca and Medina. Outside of the borders of Saudi Arabia, the Saudi dynasty is perfectly willing to covertly and overtly support, ally and cooperate with al Qaeda in Yemen and elsewhere.

    Further confrontations may lead to an all-out Sunni-Shiite war.

    The group’s flag reads as following: “God Is Great, Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse on the Jews, Victory to Islam,” transliterated as “alllah ‘akbara, almawt li’amrika, almawt li’iisrayiyla, alllaenat ealaa alyahud, alnnasr lil’iislam.

    This motto is partially modeled on the revolutionary motto of the Islamic Republic of Iran which overthrew the US’ puppet Shah and his iron rule of the police state (assisted and advised by the Israeli on behalf of the Seven Sisters of Big Oil, which reads “Death to U.S. and death to Israel”–meaning the stranglehold of Jewmerican interventionism and hegemony over the Middle East should pass away.

    “Seven Sisters” was a common term for the seven multinational oil companies of the “Consortium for Iran” cartel, which dominated the global petroleum industry from the mid-1940s to the mid-1970s. The Seven Sisters controlled around 85 percent of the world’s petroleum reserves. The cartel consisted of:

    Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (now BP)
    Gulf Oil (later part of Chevron)
    Royal Dutch Shell
    Standard Oil Company of California (SoCal, now Chevron)
    Standard Oil Company of New Jersey (Esso, later Exxon)
    Standard Oil Company of New York (Socony, later Mobil, now part of ExxonMobil)
    Texaco (later merged into Chevron)

    Some Houthi supporters stress that their ire for the U.S. and Israel is directed toward the governments of America and Israel. The chant does not say, “Death to Americans,” but “Death to America”.

    There’s a big difference between an actual threat and a desired event, about as significant as mistranslating Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s “the Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time” into “Israel wiped off the map”. The first is a sort of spiritual wish, the second implies a military threat.

    To be fair, it was translated into English by the Iranian state-controlled media as suggesting that Israel should be “wiped off the map” for which there is no Farsi idiomatic equivalent, and then picked up by the Jewmedia megaphone and magnified.

    Ali al-Bukhayti, the spokesperson and official media face of the Houthis, tried to reject the literal interpretation of the slogan by stating that in one of his interview “We do not really want death to anyone. The slogan is simply against the interference of those governments [i.e. U.S. and Israel]”.

    They also call Saudi Arabia a U.S. puppet state. The KSA is certainly proving itself to be a Zionist tool as well. I have little doubt that the Palestinians will be thrown under the bus by Trump, the Saudis, and the Arab League.

    Isis/Israeli pact? Do Daesh/ISIS ever target Jews?

    Manchester has long been a cultural centre for Jews, does seem Jews are off the head choppers hit list.

    Or could it be out of admiration for the late vile Menachem Begin’s Irgun job on the King David Hotel back in 1948?

    Hey Joe Cortina,

    Glad to hear you’re doing better. I checked out your blog in the past.

    Some of your rants like the MLK one and your experiences in Occupied Palestine were intersting posts.

    The odds are Trumpstein will finish America off — he always gave me the gut vibe that he was a two faced rat from Jew Yuck City. It’s Wall Street and MIC as usual in DC whether the Democraps or Republiscums hold power.

    America would be great again if people like you, +BN, and Henry Ford were on Crapitol Hill.

    Also, if you don’t mind can you tell people on here some more ideas to apply in order to make America great again in real life. Thanks.
