The Surreal Clashes Between French Police and Protests at EURO2016

“If the A-bomb was the most dangerous weapon in the 20th century then so is the media in the 21th century … the two sides of the screen” – Yeghia Tashijian, Armenian journalist

French fans watch final EURO 2016 game on big screen under Eiffel tower while others protest near by

 

 

 

 

Water cannon has been used against protesters gathered outside the fan zone at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. The mob clashed with officers after they shut down the fan zone fearing overcrowding.

Earlier French police fired tear gas to drive back dozens of fans as they tried to enter the ‘fan zone.’

Fans apparently began the standoff with police by throwing smoke grenades, a Periscope video from the scene showed. Officers responded with tear gas and pushed the crowd back.

The standoff between police and protesters went on throughout the entire match. The mob chanted incomprehensible slogans, waving both French and Portuguese flags.

Angry attendees, who had been pushed back from the fan zone, started burning garbage and tossing objects at police. Officers had to deploy water cannon to douse the burning garbage.

Protesters also set several scooters ablaze just outside the fan zone.”The fire is being handled,” a police source told Reuters.

Smoke was seen rising around the main Parisian landmark from blocks away, as Twitter posts show. The fan zone, set up for crowds to watch the Euro Championship games on large outdoor screens was closed after reaching its maximum capacity of 90,000 at around 7:00pm local time (5:00pm GMT), an hour before the match began, police said, as reported by Reuters.

The Eiffel Tower fan zone has already been a hot spot for disturbances during the football championship. On July 2, a stampede marred the Italy-Germany Euro 2016 quarter-final. The panic was said to have been caused by fireworks, which some of the fans mistook for bomb explosions, before they dispersed in different directions.

Euro 2016 initially began with violence and disturbances, with fans clashing throughout the first two weeks of the championship. Hundreds were arrested and dozens hospitalized. The most brutal standoff took place in Marseille in June, when several British and Russian fans clashed, with two people left in a coma after the standoff.

Stop Wahhabist School to Fight Terrorism

Terrorist attacks in Europe has caused a two-way incitement between Europeans and Muslims, which is a result that terrorist group ISIL is trying to reach as they’ve said after the Charlie Hebdo attacks on the 7th of January 2015: “compel the Crusaders (Europeans) to actively destroy the garrison themselves… Muslims in the West will quickly find themselves between one of two choices, they either apostatize… or they emigrate to the Islamic State and thereby escape persecution from the Crusader governments and citizens”.

The latest attacks on the Belgian capitol Brussels left 35 dead and 270 injured when suicide bombers hit Zaventem airport and Maalbeek metro station on Tuesday morning. Recent reports from Belgian media showed that people involved in the terrorist attacks are Muslims and of Arab background.

Mostly, Europeans would blame the millions of Muslims in Europe (and a lot of them have done so) for being the cause of religious incitement, and by far that’s sort of right, since there’s a minority of Muslims whose taking a big part of inciting against the “Crusaders”.

Wahhabism from Saudi Arabia hitting several nations

The Arab – Muslims whom are able to go to Europe and live there (aside of refugees and asylum seekers) can afford the living, where the biggest percentage comes from the GCC countries (Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and Emirates). And the ideology that all of these countries share (except Oman and partially Kuwait) is Wahhabism or Salafism. This sect is considered to be the most fanatic, extremist, and inciting amongt all Muslim sects – consider them as the KKK or the Nazis of Islam. This ideology is also the root of many terrorist groups, such as Al-Qaeda (Iraq, Syria, Morocco, Egypt, Afghanistan..) ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and Levant/ Syria and Iraq), Boko Haram (Nigeria), al Nusra Front (Jabhat al Nusra/ Syria), Ahrar al Sham (Syria), Jaysh al Islam (Syria), al Shabab(Somalia), Taliban (Afghanistan, Pakistan) etc…

One might think that abolishing ISIL, the most prominent terrorist group would save the world from terrorism, but no! Such an action wouldn’t do anything, because religious fanaticism is not bound by a group, it’s an idea, and ideas don’t die by bombs and bullets; ideas should be fought by ideas.

In their book, Global Terrorism and New Media, Philip Seib and Dana M. Janbek argue that terrorist groups are teaching younger generations (between 10 and 12 years old) their ideology through boot camps and schools that are in their area of control. This strategy elongates the group’s survival for a longer time. They would teach students how to be hate-filled fighters, as well as how much other sects and religious groups are “sinners and blasphemers”, most evidently the crusaders (Euro-Christians) and the Rawafids (Shiites Muslims, the second biggest sect in Islam). And among this, they would teach them that it’s okay to call them blasphemers and punish them for being from a different sect, where punishment varies from flogging to beheading and public execution.

These schools of thought are not solely found in areas of terrorist groups, but also in countries like Saudi Arabia. And they’re also expanding to European countries – under Saudi funding – such as France, Belgium, Germany, and Britain; since the mentioned countries have close relations with the Gulf state, as well as big Muslim communities.

When Europeans blame Muslims for this problem, they are partially correct, but they’re mistaken when they blame the refugees for causing the damage. Although some of the latter have took part in the battles in Syria, as many pictures show ex-fighters from extremist factions seeking refuge with the influx to Europe. But the problem is inside Europe itself, where it comes from these school and extremists Salafi-Wahhabi communities that are spreading fanaticism. Thus, they serve as a “shelter” and “sanctuary” for extremists coming from the MENA region and Asia, whether these countries are suffering from turmoil like Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Nigeria, or countries that serve as a holder for this thought like Saudi Arabia.

afa841f3aa9d7de8ac28a6260f6a962c.jpg

The only way to protect the EU, is to do what Tunisia has been recently doing by their campaign “tomorrow is better”, where they are re-educating inmates imprisoned for terrorist act by extracting the extremist thought from their heads and planting patriotic and moderate-religious ideology. As for the schools, the government is keeping an eagle’s eye on academic curricula, so that they would not contain topics of incitement and fanaticism.

If such procedures are made, alongside other educational and security ones, not only in  Europe but also in the countries that are being vastly effected by extremist thoughts like Lebanon, Syria, Pakistan, Iraq and others, we would gradually defeat extremist thoughts and potential terrorism, because it’s not fair nor right to blame millions of people for the acts of a few.

Charlie Hebdo Shootings: False Flag?

by mkleit

Written by Paul Craig Roberts

The Charlie Hebdo affair has many of the characteristics of a false flag operation. The attack on the cartoonists’ office was a disciplined professional attack of the kind associated with highly trained special forces; yet the suspects who were later corralled and killed seemed bumbling and unprofessional. It is like two different sets of people.

Usually Muslim terrorists are prepared to die in the attack; yet the two professionals who hit Charlie Hebdo were determined to escape and succeeded, an amazing feat. Their identity was allegedly established by the claim that they conveniently left for the authorities their ID in the getaway car. Such a mistake is inconsistent with the professionalism of the attack and reminds me of the undamaged passport found miraculously among the ruins of the two WTC towers that served to establish the identity of the alleged 9/11 hijackers.

It is a plausible inference that the ID left behind in the getaway car was the ID of the two Kouachi brothers, convenient patsies, later killed by police, and from whom we will never hear anything, and not the ID of the professionals who attacked Charlie Hebdo. An important fact that supports this inference is the report that the third suspect in the attack, Hamyd Mourad, the alleged driver of the getaway car, when seeing his name circulating on social media as a suspect realized the danger he was in and quickly turned himself into the police for protection against being murdered by security forces as a terrorist.

Hamyd Mourad says he has an iron-clad alibi. If so, this makes him the despoiler of a false flag attack. Authorities will have to say that despite being wrong about Mourad, they were right about the Kouachi brothers. Alternatively, Mourad could be coerced or tortured into some sort of confession that supports the official story.

The American and European media have ignored the fact that Mourad turned himself in for protection from being killed as a terrorist as he has an alibi. I googled Hamid Mourad and all I found (January 12) was the main US and European media reporting that the third suspect had turned himself in. The reason for his surrender was left out of the reports. The news was reported in a way that gave credence to the accusation that the suspect who turned himself in was part of the attack on Charlie Hebdo. Not a single US mainstream media source reported that the alleged suspect turned himself in because he has an ironclad alibi.

Some media merely reported Mourad’s surrender in a headline with no coverage in the report. The list that I googled includes the Washington Post (January 7 by Griff Witte and Anthony Faiola); Die Welt (Germany) “One suspect has turned himself in to police in connection with Wednesday’s massacre at the offices of Parisian satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo;” ABC News (January 7) “Youngest suspect in Charlie Hebdo Attack turns himself in;” CNN (January 8) “Citing sources, the Agence France Presse news agency reported that an 18-year-old suspect in the attack had surrendered to police.”

Another puzzle in the official story that remains unreported by the presstitute media is the alleged suicide of a high ranking member of the French Judicial Police who had an important role in the Charlie Hebdo investigation. For unknown reasons, Helric Fredou, a police official involved in the most important investigation of a lifetime, decided to kill himself in his police office on January 7 or January 8 (both dates are reported in the foreign media) in the middle of the night while writing his report on his investigation. A google search as of 6pm EST January 13 turns up no mainstream US media report of this event. The alternative media reports it, as do some UK newspapers, but without suspicion or mention whether his report has disappeared. The official story is that Fredou was suffering from “depression” and “burnout,” but no evidence is provided. Depression and burnout are the standard explanations of mysterious deaths that have unsettling implications.

Once again we see the US print and TV media serving as a ministry of propaganda for Washington. In place of investigation, the media repeats the government’s implausible story.

It behoves us all to think. Why would Muslims be more outraged by cartoons in a Paris magazine than by hundreds of thousands of Muslims killed by Washington and its French and NATO vassals in seven countries during the past 14 years?

If Muslims wanted to make a point of the cartoons, why not bring a hate crime charge or lawsuit? Imagine what would happen to a European magazine that dared to satirize Jews in the way Charlie Hebdo satirized Muslims. Indeed, in Europe people are imprisoned for investigating the holocaust without entirely confirming every aspect of it.

If a Muslim lawsuit was deep-sixed by French authorities, the Muslims would have made their point. Killing people merely contributes to the demonization of Muslims, a result that only serves Washington’s wars against Muslim countries.

If Muslims are responsible for the attack on Charlie Hebdo, what Muslim goal did they achieve? None whatsoever. Indeed, the attack attributed to Muslims has ended French and European sympathy and support for Palestine and European opposition to more US wars against Muslims. Just recently France had voted in the UN with Palestine against the US-Israeli position. This assertion of an independent French foreign policy was reinforced by the recent statement by the President of France that the economic sanctions against Russia should be terminated.

Clearly, France was showing too much foreign policy independence. The attack on Charlie Hebdo serves to cow France and place France back under Washington’s thumb.

Some will contend that Muslims are sufficiently stupid to shoot themselves in the head in this way. But how do we reconcile such alleged stupidity with the alleged Muslim 9/11 and Charlie Hebdo professional attacks?

If we believe the official story, the 9/11 attack on the US shows that 19 Muslims, largely Saudis, without any government or intelligence service support, outwitted not only all 16 US intelligence agencies, the National Security Council, Dick Cheney and all the neoconservatives in high positions throughout the US government, and airport security, but also the intelligence services of NATO and Israel’s Mossad. How can such intelligent and capable people, who delivered the most humiliating blow in world history to an alleged Superpower with no difficulty whatsoever despite giving every indication of their intentions, possibly be so stupid as to shoot themselves in the head when they could have thrown France into turmoil with a mere lawsuit?

The Charlie Hebdo story simply doesn’t wash. If you believe it, you are no match for a Muslim.

Some who think that they are experts will say that a false flag attack in France would be impossible without the cooperation of French intelligence. To this I say that it is practically a certainty that the CIA has more control over French intelligence than does the President of France. Operation Gladio proves this. The largest part of the government of Italy was ignorant of the bombings conducted by the CIA and Italian Intelligence against European women and children and blamed on communists in order to diminish the communist vote in elections.

Americans are a pitifully misinformed people. All of history is a history of false flag operations. Yet Americans dismiss such proven operations as “conspiracy theories,” which merely proves that government has successfully brainwashed insouciant Americans and deprived them of the ability to recognize the truth.

Americans are the foremost among the captive nations.

Who will liberate them?

12 > 2000: المسلمون هم الضحية

by mkleit

الملثمين الذين هاجموا مبنى مجلة تشارلي إيبدو

كان مسلمو العالم الضحية الأكبر بعد الهجوم الذي استهدف مقر المجلة الفرنسية الساخرة “تشارلي إيبدو” والتي أضحت بين ليلة وضحاها أشهر مجلة في العالم, وأجبرت كل من لم يسمع بها على أن يهرع للبحث عن أي معلومة تعرفّه عن هذه المجلة الساخرة بعد مقتل عدد من صحفييها ورساميها من قِبل ملثمين. وبالرغم من أن الحكومة الفرنسية لم توجه الاتهام إلى أي جهة, فقد خرجت مصادر صحافية قائلة إن المسلحين اللذين هاجما المجلة الساخرة يتبعان لتنظيم “القاعدة في الجزيرة العربية”. وتوالت الإدانات عالمياً، حيث كان أولها من وزير خارجية الولايات المتحدة الأميركية جون كيري بعد نحو ساعة من حدوث الهجوم الإرهابي، وتلاه رئيس الوزراء البريطاني دايفيد كاميرون وغيره من قادات العالم.

وبعيداً عن أحداث باريس الدموية، وفي قرية لا برج إيفل فيها ولا وسائل إعلامية مهتمة بها, هاجم التنظيم الإرهابي “بوكو حرام” النيجيري قرية باغا (Baga) وقرى صغرى محيطة بها, بعد أن قاموا بحرق المنازل وقتل كل من حاول الوصول إليها. وقدّرت الضحايا البشرية بنحو ألفي شخص، جلّهم من النساء والأطفال وكبار السن ممن لم تسنح لهم الفرصة بالفرار كغيرهم من الفارين الذين وصل عددهم إلى نحو 7500.

لم تجد باغا أقل أنواع الدعم ولو “معنوياً” كما وجدته باريس، حيث احتشد أكثر من ثلاثة ملايين بين زعماء ومشاهير وغيرهم من المواطنين الفرنسيين في مسيرة واحدة سارت في شوارع باريس الأنيقة, ضمن حراسة أمنية مشددة لا خوف عليهم فيها من الغازات المسيلة للدموع أو الرصاص المطاطي كما هو الحال مع مواطني العالم الثالث في كل مرة يخرجون فيها مطالبين بحقوقهم الدنيا أدنى في الحياة. ولربما في عالم السياسة العدد 12 يفوق العدد 2000، وبالأخص حين تحصل المقارنة ما بين قتيل أوروبي وآخر أفريقي، فيلعب لون البشرة دوراً بارزاً في تحديد طبيعة الإدانة والقرار الدولي الذي يليها. بالإضافة إلى أن فرنسا تُعتبر دولة عظمى من بين دول العالم الأول، ولديها تاريخ حافل في تحديد مصير شعوب عديدة، من بينها لبنان وسوريا. بينما نيجيريا تُعد من أفقر دول العالم بحسب المنتدى الاقتصادي العالمي، فهي رغم غناها النفطي، إلاّ أن اللعنة قد صبّت عليها كون بشرة سكانها سوداء، وهذا ما أعطى الضوء الأخضر للتنظيم الإرهابي أن يجزر بمسلميها ومسيحييها على حدٍ سواء.

دول أفريقيا هي من أكثر الدول التي تعاني من العنصرية الدولية والأزمات المتتالية على كافة الأصعدة الاجتماعية والاقتصادية والسياسية. فهي ليست جميعها سيدة قرارها (باستثناء بعض الدول الشمالية)، ولطالما كانت الدول هذه حقول تجارب “طبية” على الكثير من الأمراض، بالإضافة إلى استعباد شعوبها من قبل الدول الأخرى ولا سيما تلك التي ترفع شعارات الحرية والديقراطية، فليس من المستغرب أن ينبذ العالم المجزرة التي هي أشبه بالإبادة الجماعية، ويذهب مسرعاً للتضامن مع الصحافيين والرسامين في باريس من خلال جميع أشكال الدعم, وعن طريق وسائل التواصل الاجتماعية عبر هاشتاغ دشنه رواد موقع تويتر وأسموه #CharlieHebdo ليلقى رواجاً حتى في العالم العربي، إذ فاق عدد التغريدات 55 ألف تغريدة خلال 24 ساعة. واستعمل الهاشتاغ في مرحلة أولية لمتابعة الحدث أولا بأول ولنشر آخر المستجدات ليتحول في مرحلة لاحقة إلى وسيلة للتعبير عن آراء رواد موقع تويتر إزاء ما حدث. وظهر هاشتاغ آخر تحت شعار #KillAllMuslims، كرد فعل على الهجوم “الإرهابي” في باريس، والذي استقبله العديد بالرفض وطغى الاستنكار عليه، وغرد مسلمون ومتضامنون معهم تحت شعار “Je Suis Muslim” أي “أنا مسلم” و #RespectForMuslimsتعبيراً عن رفضهم لإدانة الإسلام والتضامن مع جميع المسلمين حول العالم وخاصة في أوروبا، ولمواجهة العنصرية ضدهم التي تؤججها تلك الهجمات تحت شعار الإسلام. وبين مؤيد ومعارض لما وقع، كان الملفت للنظر تاريخ مجلة “إيبدو” التي لم تتوانَ عن السخرية يوماً من كافة الأديان (باستثناء اليهودية)، حيث كلف التعليق على انتقاد الديانة اليهودية الكاتب السابق للمجلة “موريس سينيه” عمله، وذلك في عام 2009 بتهمة “المعاداة للسامية”، وتمت محاكمته بتهم الكراهية، بحسب جريدة تيليغراف البريطانية.

امرأة تجول في منطقة باغا المحروقة من قِبل التنظيم الإرهابي بوكو حرام في نيجيريا

يولد الإرهاب والتطرف الفكري من الفقر وسوء التعليم بشكل أساسي، وفي بعض الأحيان من التهميش الاجتماعي أو الإيهام بالمظلومية، وهذا ما يحصل اليوم في نيجيريا، من قبل التنظيم الإرهابي بوكو حرام، الموالي لتنظيم القاعدة، والذي يسيطر على أجزاء من نيجيريا، ويفتك “بالأخضر واليابس” من بشر وخيرات الأرض السمراء. وقد حذر رئيس أساقفة نيجيريا، المطران إغناطيوس كايغاما، من خطر هذا التنظيم، و”أن الإرهاب قد يتوسع ليخرج الى أبعد من حدود نيجيريا ويصل إلى دول الجوار وأوروبا”. وهنا يأتي دور المجتمع الدولي ممن يدرك تمام الادراك خطر الإرهاب وما قد ينتج عنه إذا ما تم القضاء عليه قبل أن يخرج خارج سيطرة الدولة الواحدة وينتشر كانتشار النار في الهشيم، فهل من يسمع لتحذيرات المطران “كايغاما”، أم أنه سينتظر غداً لتلقّي الصدمة في عقر داره كما حصل في باريس وأنقرة ونيويورك؟ والجدير بالذكر حول التنظيم الإرهابي الآخر، “داعش”، أن الولايات المتحدة لم تعمد لمحاربته “عملياً” إلا بعد أن اقترب في العراق وسوريا من آبار النفط في الإقليم الكردستاني، الذي تسيطر عليه الشركات الأميركية والبريطانية.

وبيد أن المشكلة لا تكمن في “النفاق” السياسي على المستوى الدولي، بل أيضاً في سوء التغطية من قبل الإعلام العالمي للمجزرة النيجيرية، فالإعلام أخذ منحى ذا طابع عنصري في تغطيته لأخبار الموت والقتل المستمر في دول “العالم الثالث”، وتحولت دول أفريقيا والعالم العربي بمجازرها وحروبها التي تسفك يومياً دماء المئات من أبنائها، في “الوسائل الإعلامية” لتصبح من العناوين الثانوية، ولتعاد صياغة الخبر يومياً مع تغيّر في عدد الضحايا وتصل في نهاية المطاف إلى نحو الملل، وذلك ما أدى إلى “تقبّل الجمهور عبر تمليلهم” بحسب ما قال الفيلسوف والكاتب الفرنسي جان جاك روسو. فكان من الملحوظ مرور خبر وجود مقبرة جماعية في الموصل تحتوي على 120 جثة مرور الكرام، وذلك بعد بضع ساعات من حدوث هجوم باريس. وإلى حد الآن، يتم استغلال الوضع الباريسي كما تم استغلاله عام 2001 عقب أحداث 11 أيلول، وذلك عبر الهجوم على الإسلام بالتحديد، وإلصاق تهمة الإرهاب به.

وبالتأكيد على أنه لا شيء ينبغي أن يبرر هكذا عمل، لكن هذا لا يتعارض مع التذكير بأن الإساءة إلى أي عقيدة دينية أو أي نبي من أنبياء الله هي أمر مرفوض تماماً، وهي إساءة تحرض بعض الناس على الثأر لدينهم أو نبيهم كما حصل في باريس.

The French Connection – False Flags and the Charlie Hebdo Incident

by mkleit

On Charlie Hebdo “attack”, here’s another point of someone who thought outside the box

Jay's Analysis

Patterns of Puppetry

By: Jay

A new year brings resolutions, and for the establishment, the resolutions are quite clear: more of the same!  More false flags, more media circus and staged news, ad infinitum, ad nauseam.  In the 1971 film The French Connection, New York detective “Popeye” Doyle (Gene Hackman) uncovers an underworld drug smuggling operation involving the importation of millions of dollars in heroin by a French cartel that planned to use a media personality as an unwitting front.

Today, we all awoke to news the Onion-like French satire publication Charlie Hebdo had been attacked by terrorists, with Al Qaeda taking responsibility for the murder of several media figures.  While it is tempting to get bogged down in “fluid” situation details, we must always recall similar patterns of such events in the recent past which will serve to inform the greater context of this new event in the never-ending…

انتصاراتنا نكتة ع أنفسنا

by mkleit

اليوم كنت بالسيرفيس وعم بتسمع للشوفير عم يتناقش مع راكب جنبو عن أوضاع البلد، وكالعادة تخلل الحوار عدة شتائم للطبقة السياسية.

ولكنني فكرت بالموضوع التالي:

Image

لبناني فرنسي

الى أي مدة نحن دولة من القرن الـ21؟ أليس كل دولة في هذا العصر مستقلة بذاتها؟ على القليلة هيدا الي بعرفو من كتاب التربية المدنية والتنشئة الوطنية. ومنذ بضعة أيام، قال لي استاذي في الجامعة أننا العرب نحب أن نخترع الانتصارات ونخدع أنفسها بانتصارات معنوية لا صحة لها على الأرض.  

طيب، لنبلّش بالاستقلال، بما انو العالم كتير متحوّمة حواليه. الدستور اللبناني بذاته مطبوع على قفاه (أي الجلدة من ورا) صنع في فرنسا من قبل المفوض السامي الفرنسي الي استعار نسخة من دستور بلاده وعدّل شوي بالتفاصيل وأضاف بعض البنود، من تحت لتحت، مثل:

1- المواطن اللبناني هو ابن طائفته، وعبارة “مواطن لبناني” هي تمويه لعبارة “الشيعي – السني – الدرزي – الماروني…”

2- النائب اللبناني ينتخب بحسب طائفته وواسطته مع المواطنين ولا داعي لوجود كفاءة على الـCV

3- البرلمان اللبناني يتألف من 128 نائبًا رغم أن البلد بحجم عقّوص العقربة بس انو في عالم بدا تشتغل نواب وعندن واسطة الأم الحنونة فرنسا

4- غلاء الأسعار والمعاشات الزهيدة واردة للمواطنين، واذا أقرت زودة يجب أن تشمل من هم في الطبقة السياسية وأصحاب الراسميل الكبيرة، لأنن كمان يعتبروا عمّال في سبيل الوطن

5- لدى فرنسا والدول الكبرى والصغرى الأفضلية على الدولة اللبنانية في التدخل في شؤون المواطنين لأنهم أدرى بذلك الصدد

وتتنوع وتتعدد البنود التي موجودة بالحبر المخفي منذ أن رسمنا العلم اللبناني على ورقة دفتر الرياضيات لما كنّا زهقانين خلال الحصة. فكيف نكون مستقلين اذا الدستور فرنسي، الكلام متجزء بين عربي، تركي، فرنسي، وانجليزي، ومناطق لبنانية محتلة منذ 1982 في الجنوب، وكل أمولنا تأتي من الخارج وليس الداخل؟

كيف منصنّف أنفسنا منتصرين على فرنسا خلال الانتداب اذا هيك؟ هنّي حطولنا دستور واستولوا على المرافئ العامة والخاصة مع أصدقائهم في العالم وعيّنوا نواب عنهم ليشرفوا على العمل. الفرنسي حمل حالو وفلّ بعد ما أمّن شغلو بلبنان. 

نحن مستقلين بالكلام وليس الفعل، وما عم بتطاول على هيبة الدولة أو شي، عم حط بعض الوقائع التي نسيناها بسبب “أكل الهوا” الي عم نتعرضلوا كل يوم جراء سياسة القحط والنهب والسرقة “من تحت لتحت”. 

فاذا بدكن، ارفعوا العلم اللبناني في السماء عاليًا، وما تنسوا تحطوا حدّوا علم لونه أزرق، أخضر، أصفر، أحمر، زهري، بنفتحي، قرقمازي أو بنّي مايل على السواد. استقلالنا الوطني ما بيصير الا اذا كان استقلال ذاتي لكل شخص عن النعرات الطائفية، التبعية السياسية العمياء، والتمييز في كل أنواعه.

Libya and the UN Bombing: Fact or a Bed time Story?

by mkleit

pimpdarlin:

“I believed the lies about Gaddafi & Libya all my life.

Search for & discover the truth.

Gaddafi is a strong Arab leader who has stood up to Rothschild bankers, unlike our own leaders who have wilfully made us & our unborn children DEBT SLAVES.

Have the courage to know the truth & take it wherever it leads you or you & your families will one day be under NATO/NWO bombs.

Read Muammar Al Qaddafi’s Green Book.

Find out about the living standards & freedoms enjoyed by Libyans.

Research the Great Man Made River Project & then find out how Libya’s water supply has been targeted by the UN & NATO by bombs & special/black ops.

These are war crimes. Ignored & unreported by the inhuman Zionist mainstream media.

The 2 main objectives of behind the invasion of Libya are:
privatising the national oil company and the state-owned central banking system.

Wake up. Unless enough of us do, we will be picked off & set against each other by these banker fascists who laugh at how easily we are controlled.

THINK for yourself in these times, as if your life depended on it.

IT DOES.

Love & respect to the people of Libya.

The main objectives behind the invasion of Libya, a sovereign country are the privatization of the oil & banking industries.”

Bahrain: The Palestine of the Arab Gulf

by mkleit

For those of you who don’t know, this is Bahrain: (feel free to google for more information about the country)

Bahrain is located in the Middle East, it is the smallest Arab country but an influential one with its oil riches
http://ir.blogs.ie.edu

Probably the title may seem as a political opinion, but it’s not. This would be far from a political analysis as much as it would be a humanitarian spread of information.

Bahrain has followed the stream of the so-called “Arab Spring”, though in my personal opinion, it is the only country that is having a true revolution, alongside the protests in Eastern provinces of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
The reason for that: Bahrain is only “Arab Spring” country that has minimal news coverage since the 14th of February 2011, the start of its revolution.

For me, it is because of the verity of its peaceful protest and their would be no use for “the higher powers” of a change in Bahrain’s current political system. But if you have checked the outcome of other “Arab Spring” revolution you might realize the following:

  1. Egypt is still in time of turmoil due to “unchanged” regime that has come to their newly formed political system.
  2. Yemen is drowning in political problems that keep on evolving day by day due to tribal collisions and deviation from the original demands of the revolution.
  3. Tunisia, the first spark of the revolutions, are not different from their Egyptian counterparts, where the type of regime is the same, and with the same results as well.
  4. Libya has entered a excruciating civil war that’s tearing the country apart, as well as the great loss in most of its resources after the NATO interference in removing former dictator Muamar Ghaddafi. Libya was concerned a country that could turn all of Africa into a huge green space due to its resources that varied from gold, oil, gas, and water.
  5. Syria is a complex issue. From my own point of view, the first protests were true and honest until it was infiltrated by several terrorist groups that tore several regions of country apart, especially within the opposition itself. The reformation that Syrian president Bashar Assad has done lessened the levels of violence, until the terrorist groups have took over the whole opposition. It’s not weird that you find several central commands for the Syrian opposition; most of them not related to each other, such as the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Syrian National Council, Al-Nusra Front, etc… Media had a huge role in diverting public opinions to be extreme to both pro and anti-regime.

All that, Palestine is still outside the map and witnessed a severe aggression from the zionist entity in its land. To make this all brief and straight forward, “israel” is the only one that’s benefiting from the “Arab Spring”. From the North, there are Lebanon and Syria that are directly affected with the latter’s crisis.

Syria, part of the axis of opposition to “israel”, with Lebanon, Iran, and Palestine. The zionist entity also benefited from Egypt’s turmoil, since the Arab country has a huge weight in the Arab-israeli conflict, due to geopolitical reasons. While as the rest of the Arab countries, fall under colonial benefits for elite nations.

 

Bahrain’s revolution in Photo
http://www.presstv.ir/detail/175357.html

 

But what about Bahrain? Why makes it special apart from all other Arab countries that witnessed revolutions? I’ll tell you why. Bahrain is the only country among the above mentioned that served a peaceful unarmed revolution, yet the regime faced the protests with apprehensions, detainment, preposterous legislation, and death.

Where was the media from all this? Mainstream media in the Arab Gulf is an allied nation by itself and follows the command of the Gulf kings. One Ommani friend once told me in a gathering of Journalists in Amman, Jordan: “You can only praise the king, army, allies, and religion in Arab mainstream media, but not criticize them, or else…”

Or else the king and his allies will either seize your acts, by diplomacy or force, and what’s even worse, diverting public opinion against you. Thus what is happening in the smallest Arab country. Search mainstream media during news broadcasts, only a small number of them would report the Bahraini revolution on a daily basis, those who have a political agenda with the people, such as Al-Alam TV (Iranian), al Manar TV (Lebanese, pro-Hezbollah), Press TV (Iranian), Addonnia (Syrian, pro-government), Itijah TV (Iraqi, Lebanese-based, pro-axis of opposition to “israel”), al-Akhbar newspaper (Lebanese, pro-axis of opposition to “israel”) and few more. On the other side, worldwide media outlets would only mention Bahrain if it’s a global matter such as the F1 competition, Arab Gulf League gathering, or some festival…

And to make things worse, Saudi and Bahraini officials have agreed to send Saudi forces to the Arab island to “preserve peace and harmony”. None of which is being achieved due to the continuous oppression on protesters.

 

Bahrain – Palestine, the wound is one

Why Palestine and Bahrain are sort of similar?

  1. Occupied by foreign forces; the only difference stands is that Palestine is occupied by a religiously-based extremist movement of no nationality, known as zionism, which has an ideology that Palestine and parts of the Arab world are their “promised land”. Bahrain is currently occupied by religiously-based extremist movement of a known nationality, known as Wahabism, which has an ideology of oppressing all what is not Wahabi, regardless if the oppressed was Muslim or not.
  2. International mainstream media ignores the situation of the oppressed and often leans towards the oppressor, that is if the whole situation was reported. While as local Arab media would report Palestine on a daily basis, but not giving it a priority, while as Bahrain is completely marginalized.
  3. Journalists in both countries are being censored or faced with harsh treatment while performing their job.
  4. The stereotype that both countries’ are being oppressed on a secular basis, Palestine because they are Muslims and Bahrain because they are Shiites. This is completely falsified, Palestine is a multicultural society, it has Muslims, Christians, Jews, communists, secularists, and so on. Bahrain’s revolution is based on the collaboration of Shiites with Sunnis, secularists, and communists all together.

I do believe there are several more reasons that correlate with the comparison. God save Bahrain and Palestine. The latter is the mother, and the first is its two-years old child.

Good Dictators and Bad Dictators

Perhaps you are confused by U.S. policy towards Middle East dictators. The U.S. supports some, denounces others and launches missiles to overthrow another. Having reported from the region for over 25 years, I can explain what might otherwise seem to be an inconsistent U.S. policy.Qaddafi was bad before he was good before he was bas again. And yet US policy is sinisterly consistent. (File)

There are good dictators and bad dictators. We support the good ones and denounce the bad ones, unless of course, we change our minds.

Take Muammar Qaddafi – please. When he nationalized U.S. and European oil companies in the 1970s, he became a bad dictator. He was such a bad dictator, no one could agree on how to spell his name (Gaddafi? Khadafy?)

Qaddafi was such a bad dictator that the Reagan Administration bombed Tripoli in 1986. But Qaddafi stuck around for another 25 years, proving once again the effectiveness of aerial bombardment in punishing bad dictators.

In 2003 Qaddafi, expecting a U.S. victory in Iraq, stopped planning to build a nuclear weapon and otherwise cooperated with the U.S. and Europeans. While Britain and the U.S. removed sanctions against Libya, Qaddafi blithely continued the brutal repression of his own people.

That was OK, however, because Qaddafi was no longer a bad dictator. He was just naughty.

When a popular uprising against Qaddafi seemed about to lose earlier this year, Qaddafi once again became a very, very bad dictator bent on genocide against his own people. U.S. and European powers began an aerial war but said they wouldn’t send ground troops. They sent in CIA operatives instead.

The opposition leaders, who assassinated their own top general, are now known as heroic freedom fighters. Now that Qaddafi appears to be defeated, western powers have to find a good dictator to take over. That won’t be easy because of the feuds existing amongst exiled politicians, tribal leaders and former Qaddafi officials.

Another wonderful example is Hosni Mubarak of Egypt. He accepted billions in U.S. military aid and didn’t attack Israel. He conducted fraudulent elections, allowed only government-controlled trade unions, muzzled the press and jailed dissidents, subjecting them to horrific torture.

He was a good dictator.

Well actually, Mubarak was a good dictator right up until February of this year when millions demonstrated in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, and workers went on strike in Suez, threatening the entire political and economic system in Egypt. Then he became a bad dictator, which in retrospect, the U.S. had only been reluctantly supporting for strategic, geo-political reasons.

Please remember that such zigzags in U.S. policy reflect our National Interest. It’s a rough world out there and we have to make tough choices. The National Interest benefits all of us, whether rich or poor.

For the long-term stability of our nation, we need access to Middle East oil and gas. We’ve established military bases in the region to protect the sea lanes and pipelines needed to get the crude shipped to U.S. oil companies.

Maintaining high profits for U.S. oil companies is an important component of our National Interest. After all, if oil companies didn’t make outsized profits, we might end up paying $4 for a gallon of gas.

The U.S. has been pursuing the National Interest for many years under both Democratic and Republican administrations, which means it must be OK.

Not only does the U.S. oppose bad dictators, we

always favor democracy. The U.S. favors free elections, for example, unless the wrong people win.

In 2006 the Palestinian Authority held parliamentary elections. International observers agreed the elections were free and fair. Hamas, a conservative Islamist party, won the election. The U.S. and Israel refused to recognize the results and encouraged fighting between Hamas and Fatah, the other major Palestinian party.

In 2007 military skirmishes broke out between Fatah and Hamas. Fatah took control of the West Bank. Hamas took control of Gaza. Israeli officials said they couldn’t hold peace talks as long as the Palestinian leadership remained divided. When Fatah and Hamas agreed to form a joint government earlier this year, Israel said it could never negotiate with the terrorist group Hamas.

The U.S. has remained equally consistent. It calls for the resignation of Bashar al Assad in Syria but makes no such pronouncements about pro-U.S. dictators in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain or Jordan.

So don’t be confused by U.S. policy. Any country opposing the U.S. National Interest can’t be a democracy. Any dictatorship agreeing with U.S. policies is on the road to democratic change.

I hope that clears up any remaining confusion.
