Dreaming Of Mohammed bin Salman
By Brother Nathanael Kapner December 27, 2018 ©
___________________________________

LIKE A NOISE IN THE DARK that shocks the psyche out of a deep sleep so my dream last night sent shivers up and down my spine.

I dreamt I was having lox and bagels at 666 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan with Jared Kushner, Trump’s ambassador to the Jewish vote, who is also Mohammed bin Salman’s personal peacemaking envoy to the West banking arm of the West Wing.

Suddenly, a black Mercedes pulls up to the entrance and Kushner pushes me into the back seat while he sits in front next to the driver, a woman wearing a Muslim headdress.

Turning to me Kushner exclaimed, “Isn’t it grand, and a large step for democracy, that the crown prince has freed up Muslim women by allowing them to drive!”

“Can they speak out against the regime?” asked I.

“Oh yes,” responded Kushner, “they are very vocal with an intense hatred toward the Assad regime, and the Ayatollah regime, and really, every regime in the whole wide world that are the enemies of democracy, and foes of the only democracy in the universe, Israel.”

“In the universe?” I questioned, “Israel is the only democracy in the universe?”

“You bet your matzah balls, it is!” stressed Kushner, “we’re, I mean, Israel’s the only country where settlers can vote in places where Jewish voters never could vote before.”

Before I could say, “FILCHED,” I found myself in some palatial place right smack in the middle of the desert.

Wondering where I was I kept asking myself if I was dreaming when a man in a long robe with a wide smile came up to me.

WITH A SCYTHE-LIKE SAW in his right hand, bin Salman gave me a big, huge hug, with the saw, teeth-side in, lying across my shoulder bones.

“Ouch!” I cried, “dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones, now hear the word of the Washington Post.”

I realized that I was not being too politically correct, and with Jared scowling at me I blurted out, “just joking, doesn’t anybody here have a sense of humor?”

“We do,” said bin Salman, “but jokes about cold blooded murder, of which I could’ve known about but may not have known about, have no place on the world’s stage, as your own senator, Felix Mendelssohn, said the other day.”

I thought to myself you’re in a real fix now. How ya gonna to tell the crown prince that he’s confusing Felix Mendelssohn with Senator Menendez?

Shall I tell his Royalness that the senator’s first name is “Bob” and not “Felix?” If I do I might offend him. So I kept my mouth shut.

Ruminating, I thought, hey, Menendez’s first name is Robert, why am I calling the scoundrel “Bob” like he’s a regular kind of nice guy, like everyone calls Pompeo “Mike” like he’s your friendly neighbor who hates Iran, hates Russia, hates China, hates Syria, hates Somalia, hates Yemen, hates everyone—except Israel—like all Americans who have no clue where Yemen is and are supposed to hate everyone that “Mike” hates, and love the Jewi…”

“MISTER BROTHER!” bin Salman interrupted, “we’ll be serving din din in a few, Chop Suey ala Saudi style. You keep kosher, nu?”

Nodding my head no and feeling nauseous I coughed this up:

“Your Crownishness, do excuse my boldness here at the Western Wing of Israeli expansionism but the senator used the phrase “the world’s stage” to concur with Gina Haspel’s debriefing on the, ahem, bone-slicing murder of Jamal Khashoggi.”

Avoiding Kushner’s harsh scowl, I continued while the Saudis placed a porcelain vase filled with Chop Suey (Saudi style) next to me on a table stand with a Jewish Star embedded in the vase, fearing I might knock it over if I got too heated.

“Look, whatever your Royalness might have against Gina Haspel she convinced Menendez and a whole slew of senators like Lindsey Graham and other Congressional slaying-enablers of a thousand, ten thousand, probably a hundred thousand, Palestinians.”

“I mean,” said I, “David slew Goliath, and that for a just cause, but Jews are slaying ten thousands of your brothers for an unjust cause, your Arab brothers in Palestine slain every day. Don’t you care? I mean…”

And with arms upraised to bring my point home I hit the vase and oh no! it came crashing to the ground shattering into ten thousand pieces!

I woke up!…turned on the musical “The King And I” and grabbed the Washington Post.

Nothing about children starving in Yemen, not a line about unarmed Palestinian teens shot by the Israelis, but Khashoggi this, Khashoggi that, wrecking ball this, madman that.

“Hmm, why nothing about all the torture victims in Gina’s Cat’s Eye Prison in Thailand?

“Ah,” said I, “it IS a puzzlement!”

    God bless you dear +BN and Merry Christmas!

    Brilliant! I love your ‘Dreaming’ pieces! This pops!

    It’s rich with hilarious memes and allusions.

    I know what the Saudi style Chop Suey means, I think.

    It’s a symbol of what Jews do on Christmas Day — go to a Chinese restaurant.

    That must have been some wild dream you had, Br. Nat, or should I say nightmare?

    So, you and Kushner were having lox and bagels at 666 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, when a black limousine pulled up, and Kushner pushed you into the back seat and sat up front beside a woman wearing a headscarf who was driving. Wow! You met Mohammad bin Salman in a palace in the desert in this nightmare. That certainly was a nightmare for you.

    I love the way you told this dream, it’s filled with illusions. But you must be relieved once you woke up, the illusions kept getting more terrifying. Was MBS ready to use that saw he was holding on your neck? It definitely sounded that way, with the vase crashing on the floor into a million pieces. That woke you up. I’m glad you shared this tale.

    I wish you a Blessed Merry Christmas and New Year, Brother, and try not to have any more such nightmares for a while.

    Dear Brother Nathanael,

    Kudos on a superb writing that hits the bulls-eye!

  10. Michael Mazur December 27, 2018 @ 8:30 pm

    If Khashoggi was such a pest to MBS he could have had a hitman go up to him somewhere in Turkey and simply have shot him in the head.

    If the hit man got caught and was tracked back to MBS, oh well, regimes are always bumping off inconvenient people, so, what other news is there, might be asked by the jaded public.

    But because K was needlessly dismembered, it’s possible that MBS only thinks he controls the Saudi secret police, who may well be Jews, and on Netanyahu’s instruction did this butchery to destroy the mooted reasonable proposal that SArabia act as sponsor and middleman in helping to bring a solution to the Israeli/Palestinian imbroglio.

    All of which is to say that Netanyahu does not want a solution to this 70yr old crisis.

    Fiasco in Islington, Part 2

    by Richard Hugus

    More facts have come to light in the case of Gilad Atzmon and his banning by the Islington Town Council from performing at a jazz concert on December 21, 2018.

    The original scenario was that one e-mail from one person calling Atzmon an antisemite somehow persuaded the Islington council to take the drastic step of removing Atzmon from a town-owned venue. Many who heard the story felt this was a rash decision which would surely be reversed when the facts were brought to light. But the Council voted to uphold its decision and Atzmon was indeed not allowed to play.

    Now it appears that the single complainant – Martin Rankoff – was not just an anonymous fan of Israel but the UK director of Likud-Herut. Herut (or ‘freedom’) was Israel’s founding nationalist party from 1948 until it later merged with Likud. It is a militant and extreme Zionist organization whose roots go in a straight line from Ze’ev Jabotinsky and Menachem Begin up to Benjamin Netanyahu today.

    Jabotinsky and Begin helped form the Irgun terrorists in 1937. Irgun committed notorious massacres in Palestine leading up to and during the Nakba (or ‘catastrophe’) of 1947-1948. These include the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem in 1946, killing 91 people, and the massacre at Deir Yassin in 1948 in which 254 unarmed Palestinian villagers were brutally murdered as an incentive for other Palestinians to leave.

    On its web site Likud-Herut UK lists Jabotinsky and Begin as “visionaries.” Likud-Herut is a member of the World Zionist Organization and the Zionist Federation of the UK who believe in “the inalienable right of all Jews to live and settle in all parts of the Land of Israel.”

    In a letter to the New York Times in 1948 Albert Einstein, Hannah Arendt, and others compared Herut to the Nazis and Fascists who had just been defeated in World War II. Referring to this letter, Ramzy Baroud recently wrote, “the ‘Nazi and Fascist’ mentality that defined Herut in 1948 now defines the most powerful ruling class in Israel. Israel’s leaders speak openly of genocide and murder, yet they celebrate and promote Israel as if an icon of civilization, democracy and human rights.”

    The history of Herut and Likud tells us a great deal about who the people are who complained about Atzmon to Islington Town Council. When Atzmon moved to appeal his being banned, formidable opponents again appeared in the form of the Simkins Law firm, one of the most expensive law practices in Britain, with not one but two partners at Simkins being put on the case.

    These are Gideon Benaim and Tom Iverson. Benaim recently became well known in Britain for winning an invasion of privacy suit against the BBC on behalf of pop singer Cliff Richard, who said he spent £3.4m ($4.3 million) on the case. Clearly, representation by Simkins doesn’t come cheap.

    Also listed in Benaim’s resumé as a client is the Las Vegas Sands Corporation which likely has no problem with Simkins’ fees either. The Sands casino is owned by billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who, as it happens, is a primary sponsor of the Likud Party in Israel, led by Benjamin Netanyahu. Adelson owns the newspaper Israel Hayom, a mouthpiece for Netanyahu and Likud.

    A face only mother could love

    It now appears that Atzmon’s banning was not the result of a casual complaint; it was an intentional attack on a well-respected supporter of Palestinian human rights by the Likud organization, directly represented by Martin Rankoff. The attack was followed up by the hiring of a lawyer who has worked for Likud godfather Sheldon Adelson.

    The connection to these powerful forces may explain why Islington Town Council leader Richard Watts, without any delay or attempt at negotiation, took the step of going straight to a decision to hire an expensive law firm. This is while Islington is facing serious austerity and shortage of funds in its own operating budget. Islington has a population of about 206,000 people. This very month, 43 of those people were counted in one survey as homeless and sleeping on the streets.

    Regarding the financial problems of his borough and others around London, Richard Watts, told The Independent in October 2018 that “unprecedented” funding pressure and demand for adult and children’s social care and homelessness services was “pushing councils to the limit”.

    “As a result less money is being spent on the other services that keep our communities running such as libraries, local roads, early intervention and local welfare support,” he added.

    Yet, to Watts and his fellow councilors in Islington, backing partisans for a foreign country – Israel — took precedence over the pressing needs of the people whom they are supposed to represent. Either Watts was inexcusably careless with scarce town funds or a deal was made and he knew that he could depend on Likud-Herut to back him. Or, like politicians all across Europe and the US facing the power of the Israel lobby, he knew he couldn’t afford to say no.

    According to Simkin’s web site, Gideon Benaim “has extensive expertise in the areas of defamation, privacy, harassment and copyright.” Perhaps it is not a coincidence that immediately after Islington brought in Simkins, identical statements from an unnamed Labour spokesman describing Atzmon as “a vile antisemite” appeared in both the BBC and The Guardian. Perhaps a lawyer experienced in defending people against defamation and harassment would also know how to perpetrate these things.

    Perhaps this was Benaim’s opening move. Character assassination is a common tactic in cases that have a weak legal foundation, such as this one, as it goes a long way to convicting the accused before their case ever reaches a courtroom.

    The involvement of Likud-Herut in the attack on Gilad Atzmon, and Islington’s official backing of that attack, constitutes a monumental scandal. This wasn’t just a stupid mistake; it was a hit. It is an affront to reason that an an arch-racist organization like Likud, who from the beginning have stood for the removal of the people of Palestine from their own land by means of terror, murder, and forced expulsion, could possibly claim they they were defamed by someone pointing out these very crimes.

    There is a case of defamation here for sure – the defamation of Gilad Atzmon. For Zionists, defamation is nothing more than a tool to destroy opponents who can’t be dealt with by other means. We are long since tired of truth tellers being accused of antisemitism.

    We’re tired of national and local resources being used to prop up the criminal state of Israel. Coercion by advocates for Israel is at the center of this issue in Islington, as it is in many other towns and many other countries. For the sake of Palestine and our own sovereignty, it has to be called out and stopped.

    Do jews believe in Hell… Sheol..?

    According to them, and quite conveniently for them the answer is an emphatic NO! I’m sure this aides/ allows them to get away with their sociopathetic EVIL behavior!

    Interesting I say! When you consider that light defines darkness, good defines evil, as well as emptiness defines fullness how is it they get to cherry pick..?!?! :/

    They claim to believe in Heaven, even to believe that not only Jews will be allowed into Heaven, but then what is this B.S. lie of theirs about being God’s chosen people? What hypocrites, which they are called in the Holy Bible. They are walking enigmas contradicKtions, which no one should really waste their time trying to understand/justify.

    Their arrogance for lack of honesty at the risk of their embarrassment perpetuates their detractions and avoidance of the TRUTH! What a thin skinned creature, deceiving all the fools that would listen to them only to appear viable worms!

    Jesus was Baptized! Jew’s DON’T accept Baptism. Jesus whipped the greedy Jew money changers in the market place! Jesus IS KING of the Jews - not a “Jew” King! The jew’s malignant circular talk filled with lies/deceit is part of their teachings to avoid being EXPOSED, yet NEVER revealing an honest/truthful answer! Their time is VERY short now!+

    Does anyone think that Jew worm Michael Cohen looks like that coke sniffing loser sitting at a kitchen table at the party scene of Crocodile Dundee..?

    That little piece of crap Kushner is everywhere isnt he? Did anyone vote that thing into office? The archetypical Jew handler to make sure Trump stays in line and obeys israel’s demands.

    Here’s a great piece from the great Alison Weir, God bless her soul!

    Who wrote the Balfour Declaration and why: The World War I Connection

    (L-R) Chaim Weizmann, future president of Israel, with Louis Brandeis, US Supreme Court Justice, in Palestine, 1919. The two were instrumental in obtaining the Balfour Declaration, a British document that many feel was a critical step in the establishment of Israel. Zionists’ promise that they would get the U.S. to join Britain in “the Great War” was the enticement.

    By Alison Weir, excerpted from Against Our Better Judgment: The Hidden History of How the U.S. Was Used to Create Israel. Print or download a PDF of this article.

    Most analysts consider WWI a pointless conflict that resulted from diplomatic entanglements rather than some travesty of justice or aggression. Yet, it was catastrophic to a generation of Europeans, killing 14 million people.[i]

    The United States joined this unnecessary war a few years into the hostilities, costing many American lives, even though the U.S. was not party to the alliances that had drawn other nations into the fray. This even though Americans had been strongly opposed to entering the war and Woodrow Wilson had won the presidency with the slogan, “He kept us out of war.”[ii]

    President Wilson changed course in 1917 and plunged the U.S. into that tragic European conflict. Approximately 320,000 Americans were killed or injured.[iii] Over 1,200 American citizens who opposed the war were rounded up and imprisoned, some for years.[iv]

    A number or reasons were publicly given for Wilson‘s change of heart, including Germany‘s submarine warfare, Germany’s sinking of the British passenger ship Lusitania,[v] and a diplomatic debacle known as the Zimmerman Telegram episode.[vi] Historians also add pro-British propaganda and economic reasons to the list of causes, and most suggest that a number of factors were at play.

    While Americans today are aware of many of these facts, few know that Zionism appears to have been one of those factors. [Zionism was a political movement to create a Jewish state in Palestine. When this movement began, in the late 1800s, the population of Palestine was 96 percent Muslim and Christian. The large majority of Jews around the world were not Zionists.]

    Diverse documentary evidence shows that Zionists pushed for the U.S. to enter the war on Britain’s side as part of a deal to gain British support for their colonization of Palestine.

    From the very beginning of their movement, Zionists realized that if they were to succeed in their goal of creating a Jewish state on land that was already inhabited by non-Jews, they needed backing from one of the “great powers.”[vii] They tried the Ottoman Empire, which controlled Palestine at the time, but were turned down (although they were told that Jews could settle throughout other parts of the Ottoman empire and become Turkish citizens).[viii]

    They then turned to Britain, which was also initially less than enthusiastic. Famous English Middle East experts such as Gertrude Bell pointed out that Palestine was Arab and that Jerusalem was sacred to all three major monotheistic faiths.[ix]

    Future British Foreign Minister Lord George Curzon similarly stated that Palestine was already inhabited by half a million Arabs who would “not be content either to be expropriated for Jewish immigrants or to act merely as hewers of wood and drawers of water for the latter.”[x]

    However, once the British were embroiled in World War I, and particularly during 1916, a disastrous year for the Allies in which there were 60,000 British casualties in one day alone,[xi] Zionists were able to play a winning card.

    While they previously had appealed to religious or idealistic arguments, now Zionist leaders could add a particularly powerful motivator: telling the British government that Zionists in the U.S. would push America to enter the war on the side of the British, if the British promised to support a Jewish home in Palestine afterward.[xii]

    In 1917 British Foreign Minister Lord Balfour issued a letter to Zionist leader Lord Rothschild. Known as the Balfour Declaration, this letter promised that Britain would “view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and “use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object.”

    The letter then qualified this somewhat by stating that it should be “clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine.” The “non-Jewish communities” were 92 percent of Palestine’s population at that time,[xiii] vigorous Zionist immigration efforts having slightly expanded the percentage of Jews living in Palestine by then.

    The letter, while officially signed by British Foreign Minister Lord Balfour, had been in process for two years and had gone through a number of edits by British and American Zionists and British officials.[xiv] As Zionist leader Nahum Sokolow later wrote, “[e]very idea born in London was tested by the Zionist Organization in America, and every suggestion in America received the most careful attention in London.”[xv]

    Sokolow wrote that British Zionists were helped, “above all, by American Zionists. Between London, New York, and Washington there was constant communication, either by telegraph, or by personal visit, and as a result there was perfect unity among the Zionists of both hemispheres.” Sokolow particularly praised “the beneficent personal influence of the Honourable Louis D. Brandeis, Judge of the Supreme Court.”[xvi]

    The final version of the Declaration was actually written by Leopold Amery, a British official who, it came out later, was a secret and fervent Zionist.[xvii]

    It appears that the idea for such a declaration had been originally promoted by Parushim founder Horace Kallen. [The Parushim was a secret Zionist society described by professor Sarah Schmidt and U.S. author Peter Grose; for more information and citations see Weir’s book.]

    Author Peter Grose reports, “The idea had come to [the British] from an unlikely source. In November 1915, long before the United States was involved in the war, the fertile brain of Horace Kallen… had come up with the idea of an Allied statement supporting in whatever veiled way was deemed necessary, Jewish national rights in Palestine.”

    Grose writes that Kallen suggested the idea to a well-connected British friend who would pass the idea along. According to Kallen, such a statement “would give a natural outlet for the spontaneous pro-English, French, and Italian sympathies of the Jewish masses.” Kallen told his friend that this would help break down America’s neutrality, which Kallen knew was the aim of British diplomacy, desperate to bring the U.S. into the war on its side.

    Grose writes: “Kallen‘s idea lit a spark of interest in Whitehall.”[xviii]

    While the “Balfour Declaration” was a less than ringing endorsement of Zionism, Zionists considered it a major breakthrough, because it cracked open a door that they would later force wider and wider open. In fact, many credit this as a key factor in the creation of Israel.[xix]

    These Balfour-WWI negotiations are referred to in various documents.

    Samuel Landman, secretary of the World Zionist Organization, described them in detail in a 1936 article in World Jewry. He explained that a secret “gentleman’s agreement” had been made in 1916 between the British government and Zionist leaders:

    After an understanding had been arrived at between Sir Mark Sykes and [Zionists] Weizmann and Sokolow, it was resolved to send a secret message to Justice Brandeis that the British Cabinet would help the Jews to gain Palestine in return for active Jewish sympathy and for support in the USA for the Allied cause, so as to bring about a radical pro-Ally tendency in the United States.[xx]

    Landman wrote that once the British had agreed to help the Zionists, this information was communicated to the press, which he reported rapidly began to favor the U.S. joining the war on the side of Britain.[xxi]

    Landman claimed that Zionists had fulfilled their side of the contract and that it was “Jewish help that brought U.S.A. into the war on the side of the Allies,” thus causing the defeat of Germany.[xxii] He went on to state that this had “rankled” in Germany ever since and “contributed in no small measure to the prominence which anti-Semitism occupies in the Nazi programme.”

    British Colonial Secretary Lord Cavendish also wrote about this agreement and its result in a 1923 memorandum to the British Cabinet, stating:

    “The object [of the Balfour Declaration] was to enlist the sympathies on the Allied side of influential Jews and Jewish organizations all over the world… [and] it is arguable that the negotiations with the Zionists…did in fact have considerable effect in advancing the date at which the United States government intervened in the war.”[xxiii]

    Former British Prime Minister Lloyd George similarly referred to the deal, telling a British commission in 1935:

    “Zionist leaders gave us a definite promise that, if the Allies committed themselves to giving facilities for the establishment of a national home for the Jews in Palestine, they would do their best to rally Jewish sentiment and support throughout the world to the Allied cause. They kept their word.”[xxiv]

    Brandeis University professor and author Frank E. Manuel reported that Lloyd George had testified in 1937 “that stimulating the war effort of American Jews was one of the major motives which, during a harrowing period in the European war, actuated members of the cabinet in finally casting their votes for the Declaration.”[xxv]

    American career Foreign Service Officer Evan M. Wilson, who had served as Minister-Consul General in Jerusalem, also described this arrangement in his book Decision on Palestine. He wrote that the Balfour declaration “…was given to the Jews largely for the purpose of enlisting Jewish support in the war and of forestalling a similar promise by the Central Powers [Britain’s enemies in World War I]”.[xxvi]

    The official biographer of Lloyd George, author Malcolm Thomson, stated that the “determining factor” in the decision to issue the Balfour Declaration was the “scheme for engaging by some such concession the support of American Zionists for the allied cause in the first world war.”[xxvii]

    Similarly, Zionist historian Naomi Cohen calls the Balfour Declaration a “wartime measure,” and writes: “Its immediate object was to capture Jewish sympathy, especially in the United States, for the Allies and to shore up England’s strategic interests in the Near East.” The Declaration was pushed, she writes, “by leading Zionists in England and by Brandeis, who intervened with President Wilson.”[xxviii]

    Future Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion speaking at 19th Zionist Congress, Lucerne, Switzerland, 1935. Ben-Gurion wrote: “American Jewry had a considerable part, knowingly or not, in the achievement of the Balfour Declaration.”
    Finally, David Ben-Gurion, the first prime minister of Israel, wrote in 1939:

    “To a certain extent America had played a decisive role in the First World War, and American Jewry had a considerable part, knowingly or not, in the achievement of the Balfour Declaration.”[xxix]

    [Most Jews in the U.S and elsewhere, including in Palestine itself, were not Zionists, and some strenuously opposed Zionism. See the book for more information on this.]

    The influence of Brandeis and other Zionists in the U.S. had enabled Zionists to form an alliance with Britain, one of the world’s great powers, a remarkable achievement for a non-state group and a measure of Zionists’ by-then immense power. As historian Kolsky states, the Zionist movement was now “an important force in international politics.”[xxx]

    [Future Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Abba Eban later wrote that the Balfour Declaration stood alone as “the decisive diplomatic victory of the Jewish people in modern history.”]

    American Zionists may also have played a role in preventing an early peace with the Ottoman Empire.[xxxi]

    In May 1917 American Secretary of State Robert Lansing received a report that the Ottomans were extremely weary of the war and that it might be possible to induce them to break with Germany and make a separate peace with Britain.[xxxii]

    Such a peace would have helped in Britain’s effort to win the war (victory was still far from ensured), but it would have prevented Britain from acquiring Palestine and enabling a Jewish state.[xxxiii]

    Future Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter worked to prevent an early peace to the war. Frankfurter often worked secretly with Brandeis, who had procured a professorship for Frankfurter at Harvard (see book for details.)

    The State Department considered a separate Ottoman peace a long shot, but decided to send an emissary to pursue the possibility. Felix Frankfurter became part of the delegation and ultimately persuaded the delegation’s leader, former Ambassador Henry J. Morgenthau, to abandon the effort.[xxxiv]

    US State Department officials considered that Zionists had worked to scuttle this potentially peace-making mission and were unhappy about it.[xxxv] Zionists often construed such displeasure at their actions as evidence of American diplomats’ “anti-Semitism.”

    Dear C D Johnson,

    Bibsy, extremely annoyed with Obama, ceremonially gave VP Biden the broken glass as a veiled threat to the US President when Biden made an official visit to Israel back in 2010.

    It was Obama’s first term, and he was determined to push Israel to start pulling back the illegal squatters in the Palestinian West Bank to the pre-1967 cease-fire line.

    Ceasefire lines are erroneously called “borders” like the Israeli’s prison fence line around Gaza is called a “border”.

    Since it takes sovereign parties to negotiate and agree upon a treaty defining territorial international borders (as in the dead and rotting “two state solution”), in absence of a treaty, the 1967 cease-fire line remains just that, a frozen armistice line.

    +BN wrote an Article on the significance of the broken glass, and goes into detail revealing the symbolism and Netanyahu’s political reasoning behind it.

    . There’s a lot of embedded links but hard to see (at least for me), so it’s necessary to highlight them by hovering the mouse over the story line.

    Netanyahu Warns Biden With ‘Broken Glass’

    The SAA and SDF came to an agreement concerning Manbij today.

    The Kurdish YPG units left Manbij in order to fight against the Daesh* terrorist group to the east of the Euphrates, while the SAA assumed unopposed control over the city.

    The liberation of city and its restoration back to Damascus control will also mean the SAA’s control of a main border crossing, breaks the US-NATO/Israeli hold over the city through their proxies, and puts a major cramp in NATO Turkey’s expansionist dreams after making nice with Trump, working on Trump’s transactional business instincts, and tilting back towards the US fold.

    After all, Trump has said all along the U.S. would leave Syria “very soon” and “let the other people take care of it.” — for Jewmerica.

    Pars Today: Iran welcomes Manbij liberation by Syrian army

    According to Mehr News Agency, in a statement on Friday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi welcomed the development in Manbij near the Turkish border, adding “The Islamic Republic of Iran highlights the need to respect Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and considers the raising of Syria’s national flag in the city of Manbij an important step toward the establishment of the legitimate rule of Syrian government over the entire country, as well as a new step toward solving the crisis in this country.”

    For the first time in years, the Syrian army entered Manbij near the Turkish border, returning the territory to the government fold, which was held by US-backed YPG militia regarded by Turkey as an offshoot of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

    The development took place following a US pledge to withdraw troops from the Arab country.

    Syria’s state-run SANA news agency said the army on Friday raised the national flag in the city which is mainly populated by Syrian Kurds.

    The move was also welcomed by Russia, with Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov calling it a positive trend.

    EKurd Daily: Syria army enters Manbij after invitation from Kurds facing Turkish threat

    Posted on December 28, 2018 by Editorial Staff in 1 Top News, Kurdistan, Politics, Syria, Turkey

    BEIRUT,— The Syrian army entered the key northern city of Manbij in Syrian Kurdistan for the first time in six years on Friday, a spokesman said in a televised statement.

    The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) have invited on Syrian government troops on Friday to deploy alongside their own forces in the north to help counter a threatened Turkish offensive.

    “We invite the Syrian government forces to assert control over the areas our forces have withdrawn from, in particularly Manbij, and to protect these areas against a Turkish invasion,” the Kurdish group said in a tweet.

    The announcement came moments after the Kurds, left exposed by a US pledge to pull out its own troops, asked for the regime’s help to face a threatened Turkish offensive.

    Nearly eight years into Syria’s deadly conflict, the move marked another key step in President Bashar al-Assad’s Russian-backed drive to reassert control over the country.

    Buoyed by its military victories, the regime is also making progress in efforts to break its diplomatic isolation, with Thursday’s reopening of the Emirati embassy in Damascus.

    The Syrian army announced that it had raised the flag in Manbij, a strategic city close to the Turkish border where Kurdish forces have been deployed since 2016 and where US-led coalition forces are also stationed.

    In 2016, and after months of fighting against the Islamic State IS group, the Kurdish-led forces have seized full control of the Kurdish majority Manbij city near the Turkish border from Islamic jihadists.

    A military spokesman said in a televised announcement that the army would be bent on “crushing terrorism and defeating all invaders and occupiers”.

    More than 300 government forces deployed in the Manbij area, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

    Nura al-Hamed, deputy head of the Manbij local authority, told AFP that the regime deployment was the result of Russian-sponsored negotiations.

    “The regime forces will not enter the city of Manbij itself but will deploy on the demarcation line” with Turkish-backed Syrian groups, she said.

    Hamed said that US and French coalition forces stationed there remained at their positions and continued to conduct patrols.

    Their deployment creates a regime buffer arching across northern Syria that fully separates the Turkish army and its proxies from the Kurds.

    Turkey reacted to the deployment by warning “all sides to stay away from provocative actions” while a large convoy of its Syrian [FSA] auxiliaries were seen moving closer to the western edge of Manbij later on Friday.

    US President Donald Trump’s shock withdrawal announcement last week left the Kurds in the cold.

    The People’s Protection Units (YPG) have been the backbone of an alliance that has spearheaded the US-backed fight against the Islamic State group in Syria.

    They are currently battling the last remnants of the jihadists’ once sprawling “caliphate” in the country’s far east, near the border with Iraq.

    A US withdrawal will leave them exposed to an assault by Turkey, which has thousands of proxy fighters in northern Syria and wants to crush Kurdish forces it considers terrorists.

    The Kurds welcomed the regime advance, a pragmatic shift in alliances that will dash their aspirations for autonomy but could help them cut their losses.

    “We invite the Syrian government forces… to assert control over the areas our forces have withdrawn from, particularly in Manbij, and to protect these areas against a Turkish invasion,” the YPG said in a statement.

    After Manbij, the focus is likely to move to Raqa, a mostly Arab city that the Kurds liberated from IS last year and that the regime has vowed to retake.

    Turkey said Syrian Kurds “don’t have the right” to seek regime help but Russia, the main foreign player in Syria since it intervened to rescue Assad in 2015, hailed the latest development.

    “Of course, this will help in stabilising the situation. The enlargement of the zone under the control of government forces… is without doubt a positive trend,” said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

    Peskov said the situation would be discussed on Saturday during a visit to Moscow by the Turkish foreign and defence ministers, to “clarify” the situation and “synchronise actions” between the two countries.

    The year 2018 saw the regime, which three years earlier was clinging for dear life and controlled less than a third of the country, reclaim large swathes of territory.

    Turkey-backed Syrian mercenary fighters have been moving to the outskirts of Manbij and the Turkish army continues to dispatch tanks, artillery and other equipment to the border and an area administered by Turkey in Syrian Kurdistan (northwestern Syria), according to Turkish media reports.

    For weeks, Turkey has been threatening to launch a new offensive against the Syrian Kurdish fighters.

    Turkey fears the creation of a Kurdish autonomous region or Kurdish state in Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava) could encourage separatism amongst its own Kurds.

    Ankara has previously launched two operations in Syrian Kurdistan.

    On August 24, 2016 Turkish troops entered the Syrian territory in a sudden incursion which resulted in the occupation of Jarablus after IS jihadists left the city without resistance. Most of Turkish operations were focused only on Kurdish forces.

    In 2016, the Turkish troops entered northern Syria in an area some 100 km east of Afrin to stop the Kurdish YPG forces from extending areas under their control and connecting Syrian Kurdistan’s Kobani and Hasaka in the east with Afrin canton in the west.

    Then in January 2018, Turkish military forces backed pro-Ankara Syrian mercenary fighters to clear the YPG from its northwestern enclave of Afrin.

    In March 2018, the operation was completed with the capture of the Kurdish city of Afrin.

    The flags of Turkey and Syrian rebel groups were raised in the Kurdish Afrin city and a statue of Kurdish hero Kawa, a symbol of resistance against oppressors, was torn down.

    Residents of the Kurdish city and Human right groups accuse Turkey and pro-Ankara fighters of kidnappings for ransom, armed robberies and torture.

    Washington has for years supported the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the fight against the Islamic State group in Syria, as part of an international anti-jihadist coalition dominated by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG). But U.S. President Donald Trump abruptly announced the pullout from Syria.

    The Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party PYD and its powerful military wing YPG/YPJ, considered the most effective fighting force against IS in Syria and U.S. has provided them with arms. The YPG, which is the backbone of the SDF forces, has seized swathes of Syria from Islamic State.

    In 2013, the PYD — the political branch of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) — has established three autonomous Cantons of Jazeera, Kobani and Afrin and a Kurdish government across Syrian Kurdistan in 2013.

    On March 17, 2016, Kurdish authorities announced the creation of a “federal region” made up of those semi-autonomous regions in Syrian Kurdistan.

    South Front: SYRIAN WAR REPORT – DEC. 28, 2018: YPG INVITES SYRIAN ARMY TO MANBIJ

    On December 28, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) released an official statement inviting the Damascus government to assert control of the areas, from which YPG units had allegedly withdrawn, in particular Manbij. The YPG added that the decision is caused by the Turkish threat and that the group will concentrate its efforts on combating ISIS.

    Syrian troops reportedly started entering the town of Manbij in the morning of the same day.

    Meanwhile, the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) have continued concentrating troops and military equipment near the Syrian border. According to fresh reports, the TAF has deployed at least 10 M60T battle tanks and several armored vehicles in the province of Kilis.

    On December 27, the UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation announced the reopening of the country’s embassy in the Syrian capital of Damascus. Abdul Hakim al-Nuaimi was appointed as the UAE’s charge d’affaires in Damascus.

    The reopening of the UAE embassy in Syria is another important step in the framework of the broader efforts of the Damascus government to restore its role in the region. Furthermore, this confirms that the UAE sees the Assad government as a legitimate government of Syria. This is something what the UAE’s key ally, the US, has repeatedly challenged by its statements and actions.

    Russian companies are reportedly planning to construct an airport in the city of Tartus, as well as joint Syrian-Russian plant to produce vaccines within a framework of agreements signed during the 11th session of the Syrian-Russian Intergovernmental Commission held on December 14th in Damascus. Other notable bilateral projects include rebuilding the car tires’ factory and construction of a new cement plant.

    South Front: TURKEY, FRANCE AND U.S. ARE PLOTTING TO HAND SYRIA’S BORDER TO FSA

    Turkey, France and the U.S. are planning to reconstruct the Syrian Elite Forces (SEF), a Free Syrian Army (FSA) group, and deploy it on the Syrian-Turkish border east of Euphrates River as an alternative for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Mehdi al-Jaila, leader of the SEF told the Hammurabi’s Justice News blog on December 28.

    The blog, which is well-known for its close ties to the US-led coalition, has not provided additional information about the Turkish-French-American plan so far. Furthermore, the SDF is yet to comment on al-Jaila’s statement.

    The SEF is the military wing of the Syria’s Tomorrow Movement (STM), which is headed by opposition figure Ahmad Jarba. Since its formation in 2016, the armed group has been working with the SDF under the command of the US-led coalition.

    Last May, the SDF attacked a unit of the SEF after it refused to hand over its weapons. The conflict was seen as an attempt to neutralize the Arab group.

    Jarba has very close ties to Egypt and Saudi Arabia. However, he resumed his relations with Turkey recently and made several trips to the country, where he discussed the future of the Syrian-Turkish border, according to Syrian opposition sources.

    It’s not clear yet if the supposed plan will be supported by Egypt, Saudi Arab or even the SDF who are currently closer to the axis of the Damascus government.

    The “Russiagate” narrative is falling apart as the Obamaite Disinfo Warriors are being exposed — “We orchestrated an elaborate ‘false flag’ operation” against Judge Roy Moore

    ~~~*~~~

    The Grayzone Project: Senate Report on Russian Interference Was Written By Disinformation Warriors Behind Alabama ‘False Flag Operation’

    Hailed by Congress and the media as defenders of democracy, high-tech Russiagate hustlers Jonathon Morgan and Ryan Fox have been exposed for waging “an elaborate ‘false flag’ operation” to swing the 2017 Alabama senate race.

    On December 17, two reports detailing ongoing Russian interference operations commissioned by the Senate Intelligence Committee were made public.

    They generated a week’s worth of headlines and sent members of Congress and cable news pundits into a Cold War frenzy.

    According to the report, everything from the Green Party’s Jill Stein to Instagram to Pokemon Go to the African American population had been used and confused by the deceptive Facebook pages of a private Russian troll farm called the Internet Research Agency.

    Nevermind that 56% of the troll farm’s pages appeared after the election, that 25% of them were seen by no one, or that their miniscule online presence paled in comparison to the millions of dollars spent on social media by the two major presidential campaigns and their supporters to sway voters.

    This was an act of war that demanded immediate government action.

    According to Sen. Mark Warner, the Democratic chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, the reports were “a wake up call” and a “bombshell” that was certain to bring “long-overdue guardrails when it comes to social media”.

    His Republican counterpart on the committee, North Carolina Senator Richard Burr, hailed the research papers as “proof positive that one of the most important things we can do is increase information sharing between the social media companies who can identify disinformation campaigns and the third-party experts who can analyze them.”

    But the authors of one of the reports soon suffered a major blow to their credibility when it was revealed that they had engaged in what they called a “Russian style” online disinformation operation aimed to swing a hotly contested special senate election.

    The embarrassing revelation has already resulted in one of the authors having his Facebook page suspended.

    The well-funded deception was carried out by New Knowledge, a private cyber intelligence firm founded by two self-styled disinformation experts who are veterans of the Obama administration: Jonathon Morgan and Ryan Fox.

    ‘It may be designed to manipulate you’

    Morgan began his career as a product manager at AOL before founding a series of start ups, some with funding from the United States Agency for International Development and Silicon Valley billionaire Pierre Omidyar’s Omidyar Network.

    Once a Brookings Institution researcher and special advisor to the Obama White House and State Department, Morgan founded Data for Democracy, a volunteer organization said to use “public data to monitor the election system for signs of fraud.”

    Morgan also developed technology for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the arm of the Department of Defense created for basic, applied technological research, and futuristic war toys.

    Rising through the ranks of the national security apparatus, Morgan ultimately emerged as a go-to source for credulous reporters seeking to blame Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump on Russian disinformation.

    In an interview with the local CBS affiliate in Austin, Texas, Morgan told viewers that feelings of discontent were telltale signs that they had been duped by Russian disinformation.

    “If it makes you feel too angry or really provokes that type of almost tribal response, then it may be designed to manipulate you… People should be concerned about things that encourage them to change their behavior,” he warned.

    Fox, for his part, is a 15-year veteran of the National Security Agency and was a computer analyst for the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) military unit.

    JSOC is notorious for its spree of atrocities across the Middle East including digging their bullets out of dead pregnant women’s bodies in Afghanistan. Comparatively little information is available about Fox’s background.

    Since receiving an $11 million investment from venture capital firm, GGV Capital, in August 2017, New Knowledge has positioned itself as one of the leading private intelligence firms taking on the scourge of Russian disinformation.

    The outfit made its biggest splash on December 17th when it published one of the two Senate Intelligence Committee-commissioned reports.

    The report, titled “The Tactics and Tropes of the Internet Research Agency,” was oversseen by Renee DiResta, a former Wall Street trader and tech specialist who was recruited by Obama’s State Department to devise strategies for combating online ISIS propaganda.

    The New York Times described DiResta as one among a small group of “hobbyists” who “meticulously logged data and published reports on how easy it was to manipulate social media platforms.”

    The hobby lobby of online obsessives converged at New Knowledge this year to sound the alarm on supposed Russian disinformation.

    In a New York Times op-ed published as Americans went to cast their votes in the midterm elections, Morgan and Fox alleged that the Kremlin was secretly running hundreds of propaganda websites in an effort to swing the outcomes.

    That assertion ran counter to the narrative the two operatives had been spinning out just months before.

    The Syrian Tribes & Clans

    Between 60 and 70 per cent of the Syrian population belongs to a clan or tribe.

    For seven years, the Syrian civil war caused a storm to tear through Arab clan society, the vast majority of which are followers of Sunni Islam.

    At the same time, it represented an opportunity for clans of other ethnicities and religions, such as Kurdish, Turkmen, Alawite, Druze and Christian clans, to bring back their presence into the public sphere.

    Arab culture considers the Bedouin people to be “ideal” Arabs due to the purity of their society and lifestyle.

    Bedouins speak dialects of Arabic and are related ethnically to city Arabs.

    Their territory stretches from the vast deserts of North Africa to the rocky sands of the Middle East. Most are Sunni Muslims; some are Shia Muslims, a few are Christian.

    Bedouin tribes in Syria inhabit three geographical regions. These three regions include: al-Badia (“the Steppe”), Al-Jazira (“Island” - alluvial plain of Upper Mesopotamia) and Hauran.

    Hauran, known to the Ancient Greeks and Romans as Auranitis, is a volcanic plateau, a geographic area and a people located in southwestern Syria and extending into the northwestern corner of Jordan.

    These three regions are called the tribal regions and have been the scene of constant political struggle between the Bedouin tribes and the central state.

    In general, Bedouin tribes do not have a unified military council to lead and coordinate their armed activities. Some remained loyalists, some had grievances with Damascus but remained neutral, some tribes cast their lot in with anti-Assad “rebel” forces.

    They were fragmented and manipulated by all the Islamist jihadi branches including Al Qaeda/Nusra and ISIS, the Kurds and other regional powers like Iran, Jordan and Turkey, and at times even by the government itself.

    Many Bedouin youth who took part in the early protests decided to carry arms against Damascus in the early rebel factions.

    The Syrian army had large number of Bedouins serving in its ranks. Many started defecting from the national army to join the Free Syrian Army. Many army officers with tribal background started to rise in the Free Syrian Army.

    Some Bedouin Syrian army officers established tribal militias using the names of their tribes, though their military activities were not managed or coordinated by their tribal Sheikhs. In fact, the Sheikhs often opposed forming such militias.

    On the other hand, the Syrian regime asked its loyal Sheikhs to set up militias and mobilize their youth to fight with the regime.

    For example, Sheikh Mohammad al-Fares of the Tay tribe and a member of the Syrian parliament established a tribal militia in al-Hassakeh as part of the National Defense Forces loyal to the Assad government.

    In Idlib, Sheikh Ahmad Darwish of the Bani Ezz tribe and a member of the Syrian Parliament set up another pro-regime militia of his tribesmen. When Jabhat al-Nusra took over his village, he was executed.

    Upper Mesopotamia (northeastern Syria) contains a significant tribal presence.

    The largest tribe in the area is Jubur, followed by Tayy, Bakara, Anazzah, Shammar and others.

    Since the beginning of the revolution, these tribes have been divided between regime loyalists and opponents, including the self-administration declared by the Kurds.

    The most prominent Arab tribes in the area that joined the Kurds are the al-Sanadid Forces, led by a sheikh of the Shammar tribe.

    All of the attempts to build another similar force in the south failed, with the exception of the ongoing Army of Free Tribes initiative backed by Saudi Arabia and Jordan, which was active in the area of Lajat, where the Bedouin identity is still preserved to a large extent, as opposed to neighbouring Hauran and the Golan.

    This next is a big political occasion, considering this involves the concillar leadership of 20% of the Syrian population.

    SANA: Syrian Clans and Tribes: Army’s entry into Menbej a resounding response to those dreaming of dividing Syria

    Hasaka, SANA – The Council of Elders and Dignitaries of Syrian Clans and Tribes welcomed the entry of Syrian Arab Army units into Menbej in the northern countryside of Aleppo.

    In a statement issued on Friday, the Council said that the army’s entry into Menbej “tramples over the dreams of Erdogan and his terrorist pawns, the pawns of America and the West.”

    The Council said the Syrian Arab Army’s achievement is a resounding response to all those who dream of dividing Syria, calling on the leaders of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces to hand over areas under their control to the Syrian Arab Army.

    The Council said that national interest should be the top priority for all Syrians, hoping that the next victory will be announced in Hasaka province.

    In many, many homes and public places all over Syria, Christmas celebrations of Muslims, Christians, and secular people, include evergreen trees real or artistic.

    On many of them will be found the photos of their family and friends among the tens of thousands of Syrian patriotic martyrs in the SAA and allied batalions and militias of the National Defense Forces who laid down their lives for God, the Syrian people, and their President Dr. Al-Assad. The word “martyr” is a technical military term, not always having a religious connotation.

    Still, there’s a symbolic significance to using the photos of the beloved soldier-martyrs on the Christmas trees — the evergreen trees adopted into Arab culture everywhere are symbolic of eternal life.

    RT: US helicopters spotted over Manbij as Turkish forces enter Syria (VIDEOS)

    3 hours ago

    Tension is mounting around the key Kurdish-held hub of Manbij in northern Syria. Shortly after Damascus announced the deployment of troops in that city, Turkish APCs crossed into Syria and US helicopters were filmed in the air.

    Earlier on Friday, Damascus had said that its troops were sent to Manbij, after the Kurdish YPG militias asked for rescue from a looming Turkish military operation.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has refused to believe the Syrian statement, brushing it aside as just a “psychological action.”

    Later in the day, the Turkish military crossed into Syrian territory at the border town of Jarablus in the province of Aleppo. Footage by RT’s Ruptly video agency showed several convoys of Ankara’s armored personnel carriers making their way through streets.

    In another video two aircraft, believed to be US Army helicopters, are seen patrolling the area.

    Manbij again became the hottest spot on the Syrian map after Donald Trump said earlier this month that he’ll be withdrawing US troops from the areas in Syria held by Washington’s Kurdish allies.

    Turkey has long been threatening a military move against the YPG, which it believes to be a terrorist organization and a major threat to national security. Ankara insisted that it needed to act, as the Americans haven’t been doing enough to address its concerns over the armed Kurdish fighters.

    The sadness is, that it is all too real.

    Jude is collectively far more evil than any “James Bond” villain.

    God bless you Brother Nathanael. May your life become all you would ask of Jesus.

    Those who do not bend in all matters, however slight, to the totalitarian tyrannical dictates of the Jew are to be, according to them, vilified, and financially, reputationally, professionally, and psychologically destroyed.

    This is the summation of the rabid hatred of the jew for all things pure, honest, reputable and morally unassailable.

    Situation in Town of Manbij Syria
    Laith Marouf, December 29 2018

    (Dear RJN Family: Just got this in and rushing to post it.

    Marouf has lived in Beirut Lebanon since 2007. He’s Senior Consultant at Community Media Advocacy Centre & Project manager at Télévision Communautaire Indépendante - Independent Community Television in Beirut Lebanaon.

    “Disrupting Settler Colonialism and Oppression in the Media since 1999,” is his biline. Probably sympathetic to Hezbollah.

    This is probably solid info, consistent with what Damascus has expressed elsewhere about the SDF coming under SAA command and control, which would of course, mean going through reconciliation formalities and changing uniforms.

    While DC is blithering about letting the SDF forces keep their weapons or not, the SAA moved in such a blitz, the point is probably moot, at least for Manbij, which would answer why the US weapons warehouse in Hasaka was vacated so quickly as reported by the Turkish media.

    It’s also consistent with other Syrian social media videos of US outposts in and around Manbij firing flares at night to warn off Erdogan’s pet Wahabi goons of the FSA/Syrian National Army battalions.) +BN
    ************************
    “The situation in the town of Manbij, in the west of Aleppo province of Syria, has become the most significant issue in the world today. Here is why if you can’t see it.

    “The Kurdish Contras have invited the Syrian Army yesterday, to take back the city and all the territory under their control west of the Euphrates. This has resulted in the Syrian Army entering Manbij area and surrounding the city, while the local inhabitants raised the national flag on all official buildings.

    “In the meanwhile, it turned out that French and American occupying troops were still in the city, and are now stuck negotiating exit routes with the Russians and Syrians. The Syrian move can be described as checkmate (Shaikh-Mat, ie the Shaikh was killed).

    “The Turkish Army and its Wahhabi Contras have been attempting to move into the territory for the past 24 hours, but the Americans keep firing flares and warning shots in their direction to keep them at bay. The US is doing this because it is frantically negotiating with the Kurdish Contras and the Syrian Army.

    “The most significant issue in all of this situation is that of the weapons the Empire has given to the Kurdish Contras over the years of the occupation. The Kurdish Contras announced that they have reached an agreement with the Syrian Army to hand over all the weapons to them, switch their uniforms and blend into the Syrian Army. On the one hand this will result in the Syrian Army capturing millions of dollars worth of weapons from the Empire; and on the other hand it will strip Turkey of its Kurdish Contra excuse to occupy more Syrian territory.

    “As I write this, the Turkish ministers of defense and foreign affairs are on their way to Moscow to negotiate with their Russian counterparts. The Turks are at the worst position possible, and will be taking whatever the Russians offer, ie they are at no position to negotiate anything.

    “Long live Sovereign Syria, for it has brought the Imperial order to its knees.”

    As Syrian War winds down, Ukraine appears to be next hot spot
    By Ian Greenhalgh - December 29, 201831095

    As we know from recent reports, former ISIS fighters, mostly Chechens, have arrived in Ukraine in large numbers and are being deployed into combat units along the Donbas front. This influx of mercenaries strongly suggests a Ukrainian offensive against the DPR is in the works, probably once the worst of the winter weather is over, some time around March.

    However, we now have disturbing reports from Donbas that suggests that the renewed war will be triggered by a false flag atrocity involving chemical weapons; a classic ploy that we have seen employed several times in recent decades, most often in the Middle East.

    The reports of involvement of British an American intelligence agents in preparing for this chemical weapons incident just reinforce my view that the Skripal poisoning farce earlier this year was largely carried out in order to place in the public consciousnesses the notion that Russia not only possesses chemical weapons, but is quite prepared to use them.

    So as spring approaches, expect a false flag chemical weapons attack somewhere along the Ukraine-DPR front lines and for Russia to be blamed, the chemical weapons will be alleged to be of Russian origin, most likely with bogus lab reports identifying the substance, just as with the Novichok nonsense a few months ago.

    Will this then be used as a cassus belli for US-NATO intervention in the conflict?

    That is a very worrying thought as a small, regional conflict between a rogue state and a breakaway region is one thing, if the USA and Russia are dragged into it, it becomes quite another and all the horrible WW3 scenarios you can think of become far more likely to come to pass.

    Blue Barrels of toxic chemicals have been spotted on the Ukrainian side of the lines, arriving by train at Krasnogorovka and unloaded there by Ukrainian personnel in protective gear, for some as yet unknown purpose.

    The fear is that these chemicals will be used in the same way they were in Syria – to carry out a false flag atrocity against civilians; e.g. a village near the front will be attacked by chemical weapons with many civilian casualties and the DPR will be blamed.

    The DPR reports that British and American intelligence agents have been spotted in this area, carrying out training scenarios similar to the real chemical weapons incidents seen in the Middle East and this is causing grave concern as Ukrainian president Poroshenko is struggling to hold onto power by postponing elections and has previously shown a willingness to slaughter innocent civilians.

    The DPR has been calling for the international community to prevent the Ukrainians carrying out a terrorist atrocity with these chemical weapons and warns that 70,000 innocent civilians are within range and at risk.

    If the infamous White Helmets appear in Ukraine, that will be a further major indicator that something nefarious is in the works.

    I cannot get on the David Duke website davidduke.com any longer.

    I don’t know if this is some temporary glitch or what, but nonetheless it’s quite disconcerting.

    Glad to hear you’re still getting your contributions through the mail, Bro.

    But you have to wonder with (((them))). Before it’s all over they probably will be stealing your mail - and cashing the checks and MO’s.

    “Senator Felix Mendelssohn”…. LOL!
