ASSASSINATION Intelwars Iran Iran nuclear program ISRAEL MIDDLE EAST Mohsen fakhrizadeh

Iran claims top nuclear scientist was assassinated with Israeli involvement

A top Iranian nuclear scientist, believed by the Israeli government to be the mastermind directing Iran’s nuclear weapons program in the early 2000s, was killed in a targeted attack Friday outside of Tehran,
according to multiple reports, citing Iranian state media.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Friday said the killing of scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was “an act of state terror” that there were “serious indications” of Israeli involvement in his death, though Zarif did not level an outright accusation. According to the Associated Press, Israel did not immediately comment on Fakhrizadeh’s death, but Israel has long been suspected of carrying out targeted assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists decades ago.

Fakhrizadeh was a senior officer with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and a professor of physics at Imam Hussein University in Tehran. He was the former leader of Iran’s Physics Research Center, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Iranian state TV said Fakhrizadeh was ambushed by “armed terrorist elements” and suffered injuries that proved to be fatal. Reports said doctors and paramedics could not save him after he was taken to a hospital.

A
statement released by Iran’s defense ministry said, “Armed terrorists targeted a vehicle carrying Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of the ministry’s research and innovation organization.

“After a clash between the terrorists and his bodyguards, Mr. Fakhrizadeh was severely injured and rushed to hospital. Unfortunately, the medical team’s efforts to save him were unsuccessful and minutes ago he passed away.”

The Fars news agency, which has ties to the IRGC, said the attack occurred in Absard, a small city east of the Iranian capital of Tehran. It said witnesses heard an explosion followed by machine gun fire. A car carrying Fakhrizadeh was the target of the attack, according to the agency.

The Associated Press says no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Zarif issued a statement on Twitter, calling on the international community and the European Union to condemn the attack and suggesting Israel was responsible.

The commander of the IRGC has also sworn vengeance for the killing.

“Assassination of nuclear scientists is the most obvious violation of the global hegemony to prevent our access to modern sciences,” said Major General Hossein Salami.

Another Iranian official, 2021 Iranian presidential candidate Hossein Dehghan, accused “Zionists” of waging war on Iran.

“In the last days of their gambling ally’s political life, the Zionists seek to intensify and increase pressure on Iran to wage a full-blown war,” Dehghan tweeted, seemingly referring to U.S. President Donald Trump. “We will descend like lightning on the killers of this oppressed martyr and we will make them regret their actions!”

According to BBC Persian reporter Jiyar Gol, Fakharizadeh’s death “is a blow to Iran’s security and intelligence services who were tasked with protecting him.” The BBC reports that “some in Iran even believe the assassination could have been carried out by Iranian security forces working for Israeli and Western intelligence agencies.”

Fakhrizadeh was in charge of Iran’s “Amad” nuclear program, translated “Hope.” Israel and other Western countries have accused the program of developing nuclear weapons while Iran has maintained the program was for peaceful purposes.

More from the Associated Press:

The International Atomic Energy Agency says Iran “carried out activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device” in a “structured program” through the end of 2003. That was the Amad program, which included work on the carefully timed high explosives needed to detonate a nuclear bomb.

Iran also “conducted computer modeling of a nuclear explosive device” before 2005 and between 2005 and 2009, the IAEA has said. The agency said, however, that those calculations were “incomplete and fragmented.”

IAEA inspectors now monitor Iranian nuclear sites as part of Iran’s now-unraveling nuclear deal with world powers.

In 2018, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said “remember that name” after mentioning Fakhrizadeh in a news conference alleging that Iran had lied about its nuclear weapons program. Netanyahu presented tens of thousands of files of Iranian files acquired by Israeli intelligence from an Iranian nuclear archive.

“A key part of the plan was to form new organizations to continue the work,” Netanyahu alleged. “This is how Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of Project Amad, put it. Remember that name, Fakhrizadeh.”

Anti-Semitism Christiane Amanpour CNN Donald Trump Intelwars ISRAEL Kristallnacht nazi Nazi Germany

CNN anchor backtracks from Trump-Nazi comparison after being called out by Israeli government

CNN International anchor Christiane Amanpour was blasted last week after she compared President Donald Trump’s presidency to the reign of terror that Nazi Germany unleashed on Jews in Nov. 1938, infamously remembered by history as “Kristallnacht.

Now, the CNN personality is backtracking.

What did Amanpour say?

Amanpour made her shocking comparison while celebrating Joe Biden’s media-declared victory over Trump in the election.

This week 82 years ago, Kristallnacht happened,” Amanpour said on her CNN show. “It was the Nazis’ warning shot across the bow of our human civilization that led to genocide against a whole identity and, in that tower of burning books, it led to an attack on fact, knowledge, history and truth.”

“After four years of a modern-day assault on those same values by Donald Trump, the Biden-Harris team pledges a return to normal,” she added.

As TheBlaze reported, Amanpour was widely condemned by Jews, politicians, and media figures for offensive comparison.

Even the Israeli government demanded that Amanpour apologize.

Israeli Diaspora Affairs Minister Omer Yankelevitch said in a letter to CNN, “Using the memory of the Holocaust for cheap headlines or a political agenda is concerning and distorts the historical and moral truth.”

“Distortion and minimization of the Holocaust are deplorable lies that only encourage the evil voices of anti-Semitism. Employing the memory of the Holocaust for cheap shock value and to further a political agenda is a deeply troubling and offensive spin of historic and moral truths with dangerous implications,” Yankelevitch added.

What is Amanpour saying now?

On her show Monday, Amanpour expressed regret over her comments, but did not offer an apology outright.

“And finally tonight, a comment on my program at the end of last week. I observed the 82nd anniversary of Kristallnacht, as I often do — it is the event that began the horrors of the Holocaust. I also noted President Trump’s attacks on history, facts, knowledge, and truth,” Amanpour said.

“I should not have juxtaposed the two thoughts,” she continued. “Hitler and his evils stand alone, of course, in history.”

“I regret any pain my statement may have caused,” she added. “My point was to say how democracy can potentially slip away and how we must always zealously guard our democratic values.”

Anything else?

The comparison triggered anger because, as the U.S. Holocaust Museum explains, “Kristallnacht was a turning point in the history of the Third Reich, marking the shift from antisemitic rhetoric and legislation to the violent, aggressive anti-Jewish measures that would culminate with the Holocaust.”

Indeed, on that fateful November night, Nazis pillaged Jewish businesses, synagogues, schools, and homes. Dozens of Jews were murdered, and approximately 30,000 Jewish men were rounded up and sent to concentration camps.

Intelwars ISRAEL Palestinian State World

A Biden presidency would “resurrect” hopes for a Palestinian state

For the past four years, the Palestinians have been deeply frustrated with the White House.  The U.S. embassy in Israel was moved to Jerusalem, the Palestinian mission in Washington D.C. was shut down, and financial aid to the Palestinians was reduced.  Last January, President Trump introduced his plan for a two-state solution, but it was immediately rejected by the Palestinians.  Everyone knows that the Palestinians absolutely hate Trump and they were never going to agree to any deal that involved him.  So that meant that as long as Trump was in the White House, it was extremely unlikely that we would see a Palestinian state.

But now, it appears that everything could change.  When Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election by the U.S. media, Palestinians greatly rejoiced.  They are absolutely thrilled that Trump could soon be gone, and they are desperately hoping that U.S. foreign policy under a Biden administration will look very much like it did during the eight years of the Obama administration.

Of course Barack Obama was a tireless promoter of a two-state solution based on the 1967 lines, and many in the Middle East are anticipating that there could be a major push to finally make that a reality during a Biden presidency.  The following comes from a Jerusalem Post article entitled “A Biden presidency resurrects ’67 lines, Palestinian state – analysis”

US President-elect Joe Biden’s presidency will erase many of the gains the Israeli Right made over the last four years with regard to Israeli sovereignty over Area C of the West Bank – and reintroduces the concept of a two-state solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict at the pre-1967 lines.

The Trump administration had also been pushing a two-state solution, but the map that Trump administration officials were envisioning was vastly different from the one that the Palestinians have been envisioning.

And even if they were close to being on the same page, Palestinian officials were simply not in the mood to do any deal with Trump because of a lot of the other moves that he decided to make

He cut off US aid to the Palestinian Authority in the occupied West Bank, formally recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and moved the US embassy there from Tel Aviv. Trump refused to condemn settlement building and expansion as illegal – in defiance of international law. He also withdrew funding to the UN refugee agency, which millions of Palestinians depend on for education, food and livelihoods.

Trump also brokered “normalisation” deals with three Arab countries who recognised Israel without so much as demanding Palestinian gains in return, leaving the Palestinian leadership increasingly isolated.

But with Trump out of the way, the Palestinians will be very excited to get back to the negotiating table, and that is because Joe Biden and the Democrats seem quite eager to give the Palestinians what they want.

The 2020 Democratic Party Platform states that the creation of a “viable” Palestinian state is the official position of the Democratic Party

The 2020 Democratic Party Platform, which calls for the creation of a “viable” Palestinian state, in which Palestinians “should be free to govern themselves,” and explicitly opposes “unilateral action” from either side, is one place to start. Democratic strategist Joel Rubin, who served as Jewish Outreach Director for the Bernie Sanders 2020 presidential campaign, wrote in Israel’s Haaretz newspaper that it was “the most realistic and most progressive of its kind.”

And Joe Biden has repeatedly stated that he wants to see a two-state solution based on the 1967 lines

In an interview with The New York Times in February, he affirmed his support for a two-state solution based on the pre-1967 lines, but explained that he supported the Israeli retention of the long time settlements, not defining what he meant.

For the Israeli Right, the setback is enormous, given that this summer Israel seemed to be on the verge of annexation – and now it seems as if that possibility is all but buried.

Perhaps even more importantly, Kamala Harris is a big proponent of a Palestinian state.  As I discussed yesterday, it is quite clear that Biden will not be able to serve in the White House very long and that it will just be a matter of time before Harris is elevated to the presidency.

During an interview just a couple of weeks ago, Harris made it quite clear how she feels about a Palestinian state

“Joe and I believe in the worth and value of every Palestinian and every Israeli and we will work to ensure that Palestinians and Israelis enjoy equal measures of freedom, security, prosperity and democracy,” Harris said. “We are committed to a two-state solution, and we will oppose any unilateral steps that undermine that goal.

We will also oppose annexation and settlement expansion. And we will take immediate steps to restore economic and humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian people, address the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Gaza, reopen the U.S. consulate in East Jerusalem and work to reopen the PLO mission in Washington.”

If Trump’s legal challenges fail and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are inaugurated next January, I believe that it is very, very likely that we will see the establishment of a Palestinian state at some point within the next four years.

If that happens, a major red line will have been crossed and there will be no going back.

In my new book, I detail many of the things that we should expect to see following the creation of a Palestinian state.  Once you understand the consequences for dividing the land of Israel, you will never look at foreign policy the same way again.

Unfortunately, most Americans do not have much interest in foreign policy these days.

In fact, foreign policy considerations were not really a factor at all when voters went to the polls on November 4th.

But the truth is that the outcome of this election is really going to matter in the Middle East.

If Trump’s legal challenges are successful and he ends up winning, there probably will not be a Palestinian state during the next four years.

But if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris win, I believe that a Palestinian state will almost certainly be created within the next four years.

The stakes are incredibly high, and it won’t be too long before we know which way things will go.

Intelwars ISRAEL President Trump SUDAN Us relations World World Peace

Israel, Sudan agree to normalize relations in deal brokered with help of US: ‘Accomplishment for the White House’

Israel and Sudan announced that they had normalized relations in a deal that was brokered with the help of the United States. Sudan becomes the third Arab country to normalize relations with Israel in recent weeks, along with U.S.-brokered agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, which were the first nations in the Middle East to recognize Israel in 26 years.

President Donald Trump made the announcement of the agreement on Friday from the Oval Office at the White House. President Trump was on a phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, and Transitional Council Head Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, senior U.S. officials told Reuters.

“The leaders agreed to the normalization of relations between Sudan and Israel and to end the state of belligerence between their nations,” according to a joint statement issued by the three countries. “In addition, the leaders agreed to begin economic and trade relations, with an initial focus of agriculture.”

During the call, President Trump took a shot at his presidential opponent Joe Biden.

Trump jokingly asked Netanyahu, “Do you think Sleepy Joe could have made this deal?”

Israel’s prime minister diplomatically responds, “We appreciate the help for peace from anyone in America.”

As part of the agreement, President Trump will notify Congress of his intent to remove Sudan’s designation as a state sponsor of terrorism, which lifted sanctions against Sudan and will allow international financial assistance into the country. Trump signed the document to remove Sudan from the list while flying on Air Force One on Thursday night following the final presidential debate, according to a senior U.S. official.

Sudan has been listed as a state sponsor of terrorism since 1993 when al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden lived in the country as a guest of the government.

Earlier this week, Sudan’s new government paid $335 million to the victims of the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. The terror attacks killed more than 220 people.

The U.S. side of the negotiations was led by Trump senior adviser Jared Kushner, Middle East envoy Avi Berkowitz, national security adviser Robert O’Brien, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and national security official Miguel Correa.

“This is obviously a great breakthrough,” Kushner told Reuters. “This is obviously going to create a big breakthrough peace between Israel and Sudan. Getting peace agreements done are not as easy as we are making them look right now. They are very hard to do.”

Pundits noted that this agreement is a big step in the process of peace in the Middle East. Oren Liebermann, CNN correspondent based in Jerusalem, noted that the agreement is a “significant statement” and “certainly a foreign policy accomplishment for the White House.”

Not everyone was excited about the developments of potential peace in the Middle East. MSNBC host Chris Hayes downplayed the most recent agreement between Sudan and Israel.

“It’s kind of hilarious that in end, the one thing Jared Kushner actually did get done was brokering a bunch of (incredibly cynical and transactional) middle east deals,” Hayes tweeted.

During the news conference, President Trump said the agreement cost the United States “nothing.” Trump also said that there are “at least five” countries who want to “come into the peace deal.”

In September, Trump touted that there were “at least five or six countries” that could potentially make peace with Israel in the near future. Before the signing ceremony for the Abraham Accords at the White House last month, Trump said, “We’re very far down the road with about five additional countries … frankly, I think we could have had them here today.”

“They want to see peace,” Trump said. “They’ve been fighting for a long time. They’re tired. They’re warring countries but they’re tired, they’re tired of fighting. So you’re going to be seeing further announcements.”

agenda committin terrorism Compliance economic terrorism. live free forced Government Headline News Intelwars ISRAEL LIES lockdown New World Order no fear Police State public Shut-down stand up tyranny wake up

Israeli’s IGNORE Second Tyrannical Lockdown

Israel’s second lockdown imposed by the government is being ignored by the citizenry. Eventually, people get tired of being dictated to and make the decision to live freely without fear of consequences.

This should be a lesson for all countries who attempt a second lockdown. Israel is learning that freezing a nation in place is even more difficult the second time around and too many are flat our ignoring the dictates of government in exchange for making their own decisions, consequences be damned.

The Washington Post reported that this lockdown has proven extremely difficult for Isreal to enforce as people are now trending toward freedom not the false sense of safety being offered by the political ruling classes. Israel’s experience could hold lessons for other governments looking to exact tyranny on their own citizenry. Let’s hope a second lockdown in the United States never coalesces, but if it does, let’s also hope the public will stand up to the tyrants attempting to shove this New World Order agenda down our throats.

James Corbett: “The Great Reset IS The NWO!” We Are Almost Out Of Time

After a nearly two-month national quarantine, last spring, in which Israel’s 9 million residents largely complied with orders to stay home like good little order following slaves,  autumn’s Lockdown II has proved to be far more contentious as people willingly disobey the government.

In light of the public waking up to the fact that this virus is scam and hardly worth mentioning, becoming increasingly doubtful that the restrictions are necessary, desperate to make a living, and outraged at reports of politicians ignoring their own rules, has resulted in most people being less willing to lock themselves up since the second quarantine began September 25.

People are using black-market tactics to remain open. They are skirting the rules and regulations in order to be able to make an income and feed their family. The police still seem to be intent on using force and violence against people who disobey. It’s funny that the police still et to keep their jobs and stay paid and feed their families as the people they terrorize and shut down suffer.

This is tyranny. It’s actually beyond tyranny at this point. Wake up. It’s past time to stand against all of this.

Arab Cleopatra EGYPT Gal gadot Intelwars ISRAEL Woke

Woke mob outraged over Gal Gadot’s role as Cleopatra. Then Egyptologist sets the record straight.

The woke internet mob exploded with rage Sunday when actress Gal Gadot was announced as the lead actor in the upcoming major Hollywood movie “Cleopatra,” centering on the life of the ancient Egyptian queen.

Then an actual Egyptologist set the record straight.

What did critics say?

Critics complained that Gadot, an Israeli actress best known for her role as Wonder Woman, is unfit for the role because of her light skin complexion. Woke critics suggested that an Arab actress should have been cast for the role instead.

“Which Hollywood dumbass thought it would be a good idea to cast an Israeli actress as Cleopatra (a very bland looking one) instead of a stunning Arab actress like Nadine Njeim? And shame on you, Gal Gadot. Your country steals Arab land & you’re stealing their movie roles… smh,” one critic said.

Another said, “I’m sure Gal Gadot is going to do a wonderful job as Cleopatra. However, for me personally, I would love a Cleopatra who’s darker than a brown paper bag, because that seems a bit more historically accurate.”

What did the Egyptologist say?

As it turns out, Gadot is not an inaccurate physical representation of Cleopatra.

Sarah Parcak, an Egyptologist and anthropology professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, explained in a lengthy Twitter thread that Cleopatra was not dark-skinned like many people may believe.

In fact, Cleopatra was at least half Greek.

“Cleopatra was Cleopatra VII (yes there were many others!). She was of Macedonian Greek descent (father= Ptolemy XII Auletes) but… was was her mother’s ethnicity? Egyptian? Greek? Other? Many possibilities. We don’t know for sure,” Parcak explained. “Her mom was *probably* Cleopatra V, the only attested wife of Ptolemy XII. We know of one child she had, it’s not 100% certain she is the mother of Cleopatra. Cleo V’s ethnicity is unknown, very little known about her generally, hence Cleopatra’s ethnicity= 50% Greek, 50% ?”

So what did Cleopatra most likely look like? Parcak explained:

So what *could* she have looked like? The people of Alexandria today (yes Alexandria was Egypt’s capital during the Ptolemaic Era) have much lighter skin compared to people in southern Egypt, many with reddish hair and green/blue eyes.

Of course there is Turkish influence and I’m not saying that the people of Alex today look like people did 2000+ years ago. However- Alex was a hugely cosmopolitan city in Cleopatra’s time. You would have seen every type of person imaginable from all over the known world.

Cleopatra probably had lighter skin, not unlike the people of Alex today, but *we don’t know for sure*. Her mom could have been from southern Egypt, or Macedonia, or anywhere in the Ptolemaic world (and if she was a secondary wife or concubine all bets are off).

Then Parcak entered what she thought were testy waters, asking the social media world not to “cancel” her over her forthcoming conclusion about whether Gadot is worthy of playing Cleopatra.

“Don’t cancel me for what I’m about to say,” Parcak said. “Archaeology and history tell us she wasn’t 100% Egyptian, even if she acted like a proper Egyptian queen and spoke/read Egyptian. She was half Macedonian and half who knows, but probably more than 50% Macedonian playing the odds.”

“So, hiring a hugely bankable Mediterranean actress to play Cleopatra is… not as off as you might think,” Parcak explained.

“Gal Gadot is 100x a better choice than Angelina Jolie. I think she’ll be incredible in the role,” Parcak added.

benjamin netanyahu Coronavirus COVID-19 Destruction Economy government is slavery Headline News Intelwars ISRAEL LIES livelihoods Protests second lockdown Tamir Barelko tyrants

Israel’s Second Lockdown Has Been Costly Economically

This is the most unsurprising news of the week. Reports as now showing that Israel’s second lockdown has been “economically costly.” The country locked down again over a sure of infections and it has ruined what was left of people’s livelihoods.

“The economy is breaking down, people’s hope is breaking down,” said restaurateur Tamir Barelko, speaking in the Tel Aviv restaurant he runs, now empty of customers. “If the government does not give us the opportunity to live and to provide for our families, we’ll do it ourselves.” Unfortunately, it may come to that.

According to U.S. News, a lot of people aren’t just takin this lying down either. Thousands of people have taken to the streets across Israel for almost daily protests that have built up since July, demanding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu resign over his handling of the crisis and over corruption charges he faces in court, which he denies.

Schools and most offices, shops, and restaurants are closed unless they provide “vital services” such as supermarkets, pharmacies and banks, and people must stay within a kilometer from their home – harsher restrictions than in many other countries fighting a second wave.

Netanyahu had wide public backing when he imposed the first lockdown, lasting from mid-March until late May, which flattened the first wave of COVID-19.

But as infections soared after schools and businesses reopened, the cabinet bowed to pressure from some coalition partners and watered down limited lockdowns on infection epicenters to the extent that the curbs became ineffective. –U.S. News

News reports are claiming the U.S. has the highest number of coronavirus cases now, since August. Not only that, Dr. Anthony Fauci says he’s “not comfortable” with the current amount of coronavirus cases in the U.S. The U.S. is reporting roughly 40,000 new coronavirus cases a day, which may get even worse as temperatures get cooler and people head indoors, Fauci said during an interview with MSNBC‘s Andrea Mitchell. “I’m not comfortable with that. I would like to see that level, way, way down, well below 10,000.”

Does anyone want to go ahead and do the math on how many 40,000 is out of 325 million the population of the U.S.? It’s inconsequential unless you’re a tyrant looking to impose your will on others and finish off the middle class. Fauci has already suggested the U.S. “hunker down” this winter. Make no mistake, if they can, and they would like to, they WILL impose a second lockdown here.

benjamin netanyahu control Death Draconian elitists governments Headline News Intelwars ISRAEL LIES limit protests lockdown Mistake New World Order open economy power propaganda Rates SLAVERY Statistics tyrannical response United States Yuli Edelstein

Israel Lockdown: There’s “NO WAY” The Lockdown Will End Soon

Israeli Health Minister Yuli Edelstein said Tuesday that there was “no way” the country’s second nationwide coronavirus lockdown would be lifted after three weeks as originally planned. Israelis are going to be on house arrest for the foreseeable future.

Israel imposed its second lockdown on September 18 after the coronavirus infection rate soared. It was originally scheduled to end on October 10, however, “the authorities” insist on keeping people locked up with no freedom for as long as possible. On Friday, the totalitarian measures were tightened further after the initial eight days of house arrest failed to bring down the world’s highest infection rate per capita.

Israel has closed schools and cultural events and the lockdown has closed the vast majority of workplaces, markets, and places of worship, according to a report by Medical Express

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he made a “mistake” reopening Israel’s economy, even though protests against the lockdowns have soared to point that the government is going to debate ways to limit and regular demonstrations against them. People have been protesting Netanyahu’s heavy-handed tyrannical response to the coronavirus for months.

Convoys of vehicles were meanwhile heading to Jerusalem to protest the more draconian restrictions on demonstrations.

People clearly don’t want to be enslaved, however, governments are doubling down at the commands of the elitists. The goal is a New World Order in which free-thinking will be impossible or punished harshly.

“The opening of the economy and our lives will be gradual and slow,” stated Edelstein. According to government (rigged and inaccurate) numbers,  Israel has recorded more than 233,000 infections and 1,507 deaths in a population of nine million. According to military intelligence, not only does Israel have the world’s highest weekly infection rate per capita, its daily death rate per capita has passed that of the world’s hardest-hit country, the United States.

“We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end.” –George Orwell, 1984

Australia Boris Johnson Casedemic Cases deadly debacle Emergency Preparedness Europe fall fear mongering governments Headline News Intelwars ISRAEL lies hoax Mainstream media plandemic scamdemic second lockdown SLAVERY spring surge UNITED KINGDOM

Prepare Now! Europe Locks Down AGAIN!

In addition to Israel, Australia, and the United Kingdom, Europe is now going into a second lockdown.  If you think another one can’t or won’t happen in the United States, think again. There were plenty of people who said it wouldn’t happen here, and the U.S. is still on its knees from the first lockdown.

According to a fear-mongering report by Time, even the countries that had largely avoided the first coronavirus wave (such as the Czech Republic) are now seeing surges. Stricter regulations to try and curb the spread of the virus could remain in place for the entire winter. In the United Kingdom, for example, where case rates are doubling by the week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced new restrictions yesterday that could last six months, warning that the country is at “a perilous turning point.”

People are beginning to figure out that this entire debacle is a scam, a hoax being perpetrated by governments and helped with the constant bombarding of the public with fear by the mainstream media.

James Corbett: “The Pandemic Is A Test Run” For Your Enslavement

New infection clusters appear to be linked to younger people, who are less likely to die of the virus making people unwilling to follow the totalitarian rules imposed back in the spring.  The result is that this latest surge of cases has so far been less deadly than the first back in March and less burdensome to healthcare services. However, they are really scrambling for an excuse to lock people down again.

But the new restrictions could change if older people begin falling ill in greater numbers. Already, there has been a significant increase in the number of older people testing positive for the virus in France and Spain over the past two weeks, leading to upticks in hospital admissions. Rising case numbers threaten to overrun hospitals and health care services if not managed carefully. “We are not in the situation we were in March yet,” says Dominique Costalgliola, a member of the French Academy of Science and the vice-dean of research for the faculty of medicine at the Sorbonne University. –Time

Mainstream media is now also saying that Australia’s complete  violent authoritarianism “worked,” which is the exact same predictive programming and brainwashing we saw used back in spring to manufacture consent of a global lockdown after China’s brutality was a “success.”

This is all a test to see what and how much people are willing to put up with. So far, we’ve seen people in complete submission to the ruling class. Hopefully, that changes and soon because this is getting out of hand.

COLD SWEAT: Millennials Eating S**t – STOCKS SMASHED!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. 

I’m currently in Tel Aviv, where the government has just approved a SECOND LOCKDOWN, more flexible than the one in March/April but still EXTREMELY PAINFUL for businesses (which are forced to shut down again), families (which are now tasked with parenting their children 24/7), the NATIONAL DEBT, which is reaching new highs not seen in decades, and for morale and spirit of individuals, who have seen the COVID-19 virus impact A TINY NUMBER of people compared with the comprehensive response the government is imposing — this is the REAL ISSUE here — the tradeoff between not overwhelming hospitals (which are short of staff and on beds) and halting the lives of the millions, who will not impact statistics, since they’re not at risk.

September is not March or April when the initial shock JUSTIFIED or WAS MORE IN LINE with the quarantines that were enacted around the globe in the eyes of many.

Today, we know MUCH MORE about this disease: it is highly contagious, but not nearly as lethal as previous coronaviruses, such as MERS, Ebola, and SARS.

Because of this, herd immunity is TOTALLY DOABLE while the weakened populations (elderly, diabetic, and obese, for example) remain under PROTECTIVE MEASURES if they elect to.

The fact that CORRUPT POLITICS is paving the way to solutions in many countries is problematic and UNCALLED FOR.

This amazing chart shows SO VIVIDLY the magnitude of the MARCH PANIC.

The world utterly froze and central banks did what no other institution on the planet can do, and that is to use their MAGIC WAND to create endless liquidity and restore needed confidence.

It worked; the global economic machine realized the END of the WORLD isn’t coming.

No one can TAKE AWAY what they accomplished in March, but their actions have second- and third-level consequences that are UNINTENDED but end up being even more meaningful than the response itself.

Iranian President: The U.S. Will Suffer A Humiliating Defeat This Weekend

Speaking in a Wednesday cabinet session, President Hassan Rouhani said Washington failed in its attempts to reinstate a United Nations arms embargo as well as international sanctions on Iran, and these failures amount to major victories for Iran. Rouhani added that the U.S. would “suffer a humiliating defeat this weekend.”

“The US suffered ignominious defeats,” he said. “Our people should pay attention. This Saturday and Sunday will be days of the Iranian nation’s victory and days of humiliating defeats for the U.S,” he added according to Iran Front Page News.

 

“So, I urge anti-Iran news channels abroad not to fabricate stories that would indicate that the U.S. has made a claim and has waited for a month, so it can use this mechanism,” the president said. “After all, no mechanism ever started in the first place to be producing any results,” he added.

“I congratulate the Iranian nation, in advance, on the success that Iranians will secure on Saturday and Sunday, the same way that I congratulated Iranians on their resistance during the eight-year Iraqi imposed war on Iran [in the 1980s],” he added.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the president fulminated against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain for normalizing their relations with Israel. “[Israeli authorities] are committing more and more crimes in occupied Palestine every day. How come [the UAE and Bahrain] are extending your hands to Israel? Then you want to give Israel bases in this region. You will be responsible for all grave consequences of this move. Your action is against regulations and regional security,” he said.

A month ago, mainstream media in the U.S. declared that Trump has suffered a “humiliating defeat” at the UN in his efforts to impose sanctions on Iran.

US efforts to indefinitely extend an arms embargo collapsed last week when it suffered a humiliating defeat at the UN Security Council. A resolution sponsored by Washington only secured one other vote from the 15-member UN Security Council.

The US continues to maintain that despite its unilateral withdrawal it nonetheless has “an explicit right” to initiate the snapback sanctions and that any argument to the contrary would “create a perilous precedent that could threaten the force of virtually any Security Council decision.”- Middle East Monitor, 8/20/2020

Hopefully, this doesn’t elude to a war. It’s important information, however. Stay alert and aware. If history has shown us anything, it’s that things will get crazy as the rhetoric ramps up.

Bahrain Intelwars ISRAEL juan williams Peace agreement Peace deal

Juan Williams: Israel peace deals are ‘accelerating’ the ‘chance of war’ in the Middle East

Fox News contributor Juan Williams made the case Tuesday that recent peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain brokered by President Donald Trump are actually “accelerating” the “chance of war” in the Middle East.

President Trump has been lauded by many for his role in brokering the deals, which officially normalized relations between Israel and the two Middle Eastern countries. The president was even nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for securing the deal between Israel and the UAE.

But Williams, a Trump critic, interpreted the news of peace much differently.

Williams presented his argument on Fox News’ “The Five” while the panelists were discussing recent remarks made by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), in which she called the deals a “distraction.”

“It is [a distraction],” Williams said. “The real trouble here is between the Palestinians and the Israelis, and that situation has not been helped. What we’re doing here in this situation is we have the Bahrainians and the United Arab Emirates, they already had diplomatic, security and trade ties with Israel … and it opens the door to some possibilities.”

“The real action here is the United States giving arms, giving serious arms to UAE potentially to go after the Iranians,” he argued. “And so what we’re doing is stirring up a proxy war, and that doesn’t diminish the chance of war or disruption in the Middle East — it accelerates it.”

You can watch his comments in the video below starting at the 5:10 mark:


‘The Five’ blast Pelosi for calling Middle East peace deal a ‘distraction’

youtu.be

“So I think we have to just look honestly at this,” he continued. “We have to note that it’s taking place in the midst of an intense American election and that what’s going on at the White House. I don’t think anybody is fooled by it. There certainly is reason for hope, but let’s not fool ourselves.”

It is true that some conflict has already arisen as a result of the peace deals. On Tuesday, as the deal was being signed at the White House, Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip launched a rocket attack on Israel, injuring two people.

But it is particularly difficult to make the case that peace agreements should be to blame for violence. Violent offenders should be blamed for violence, which, in this case, would be the Palestinian militants.

After Williams finished, fellow Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich, chided his comments, saying, “Well you would hope the normalization of Arab countries against the Israeli state that they wanted to annihilate previously would be a good thing, but we’ll move on.”

Commentary Intelwars ISRAEL Palestinian State World

The “Peace Agreement” That Israel Just Signed Is Another Huge Step Toward A Palestinian State

The historic agreement that Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain just signed is being hailed as a major leap toward lasting peace in the Middle East.  But the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are not exactly the major players in the region, and what Israel had to give up in order to get these two Arab nations to “normalize relations” has a lot of people scratching their heads.  First of all, annexation of any territory in Judea and Samaria has now been put on hold indefinitely.  But much more importantly, the treaty that was just signed commits Israel to “a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict”, and obviously a “negotiated solution” would involve the creation of a Palestinian state.

Unfortunately, very few are talking about the deeper implications of this agreement.  Instead, just about everyone seems extremely excited that “peace” has been achieved

President Donald Trump heralded a pair of historic agreements formalizing diplomatic relations between Israel and two Gulf Arab nations in a ceremony Tuesday on the White House South Lawn.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the foreign ministers of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed the accords – written in English, Hebrew and Arabic – marking a major geopolitical shift in the Middle East and giving Trump a platform as peacemaker as he heads into the fall reelection campaign.

If you read mainstream media accounts, this treaty sounds absolutely wonderful.  We are being told that as a result of this agreement Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain “will establish embassies, exchange ambassadors and cooperate on a broad range of issues, from trade to health care to security”.

All of that sounds great, and none of those developments should upset anyone.

And if that was all that the agreement covered, there wouldn’t be a problem.

In the end, we should all want peace, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used the word “peace” repeatedly during his remarks at the signing ceremony in Washington…

“To all of Israel’s friends in the Middle East – those who are with us today and those who will join us tomorrow – I say, salaam aleichem, peace unto thee, Shalom,” he continued.

“The blessings of peace that we make today will be enormous,” he continued, “first because this peace will eventually expand to include other Arab states, and ultimately, it can end the Arab-Israel conflict once and for all.”

Bahrain’s foreign affairs minister also sounded quite optimistic when he spoke to the press…

“For too long, the Middle East has been set back by conflict and mistrust, causing untold destruction and thwarting the potential of generations of our best and brightest,” said Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, Bahrain’s foreign affairs minister. “Now, I’m convinced. We have the opportunity to change that.”

But at what price has “peace” been achieved?

According to the Jerusalem Post, the document specifically requires Israel to work toward “a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that meets the legitimate needs and aspirations of both peoples”…

The “Treaty of Peace, Diplomatic Relations and Full Normalization Between the United Arab Emirates and The State of Israel” recalls the ceremony in the White House in January, in which US President Donald Trump presented his peace plan and commits the sides to the treaty to “continuing their efforts to achieve a just, comprehensive, realistic and enduring solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”
It also commits them “to working together to realize a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that meets the legitimate needs and aspirations of both peoples, and to advance comprehensive Middle East peace, stability and prosperity.”

The Palestinians simply would not accept anything short of a formal Palestinian state as a “negotiated solution”, and so many conservatives in Israel are wondering why Netanyahu would possibly agree to this.

And one of the top officials from the UAE made it quite clear that he believed that a commitment to move toward a Palestinian state was part of the agreement that he was signing

A Palestinian state has been referenced in the US brokered Abraham Accord signed between Israel and the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday, said Anwar Gargash, the UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been under pressure from the Israeli right wing not to do anything that would cement recognition of a Palestinian state but Gargash clarified that the document briefly mentions a two-state resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, although the document deals largely with the bilateral relations between Israel and the UAE.

If Israel is willing to go this far just to achieve “peace” with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, what would they be willing to do for a comprehensive peace agreement that would include Saudi Arabia and other major powers in the region?

Just before the signing ceremony, President Trump claimed that there were five or six other countries that will soon be ready to make similar agreements with Israel

At least five or six countries are ready to make peace with Israel, President Donald Trump said at a press briefing alongside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of the signing of the historic normalization between the Jewish state, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

“We have many nations ready to follow” and make peace with Israel, the president said, adding that “at least five or six countries coming along very quickly.”

Many observers believe that Oman could be next, but the big one that everyone is watching is Saudi Arabia

Several diplomatic sources have hinted that the Sultanate of Oman – which Netanyahu famously visited in 2018 – would be the next country to announce a normalization agreement with Israel. Oman’s leader spoke with Trump last week. Saudi Arabia, which allowed an Israeli and American delegation to cross its airspace in August for the first direct flight between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, is also said to be considering a warming of ties with Israel even though Saudi leaders have said publicly that they are not yet ready for full normalization.

I don’t expect any more major announcements before the U.S. presidential election in November, but once the election is over I anticipate that more efforts will be made to achieve “lasting peace” in the Middle East.

Eventually a Palestinian state will be formally established, and my new book explains some very specific things that will happen once that threshold is crossed.

Sadly, I don’t think that the Trump administration understands the danger in trying to create a Palestinian state, and if Joe Biden wins in November we can be assured that his new administration will push for a “negotiated solution” really hard.

One way or another, a Palestinian state is coming, and that is really, really bad news for all of us.

Abraham accords Bahrain Foreign Policy Intelwars ISRAEL MIDDLE EAST Peace agreement President Trump Terrorism United Arab Emirates WHITE HOUSE

Palestinian militants fire rockets at Israel as historic peace agreement is signed at White House

A rocket attack launched by Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip wounded two people in Israel Tuesday as the Middle East’s lone Jewish state signed an agreement to normalize relations with two of its Arab neighbors at the White House. The attack was apparently coordinated to coincide with the signing of the agreement.

According to an Associated Press report, the Israeli military said two rockets were fired from Gaza and one was intercepted by air defenses. Israeli emergency services treated two people for minor injuries from broken glass.

Earlier, Israeli Defense Forces issued an alert for rocket sirens sounding in Ashdod and Ashkelon, cities in the southern region of Israel near the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinians, ruled by the Islamic terrorist group Hamas, are opposed to the Israeli agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to normalize relations without forcing Israel to cede its sovereignty over territory the Palestinians claim as their own. Historically, most Arab nations have sided with the Palestinians in this conflict, but the Trump administration managed to broker agreements that put aside the issue for now. The Palestinians consider this a betrayal.

The agreement signed at the White House, known as the “Abraham Accords” to honor the patriarch of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, declares peace and formally normalizes diplomatic relations between Israel and the UAE and Bahrain.

While the text of the agreement has not been made public, Israeli officials reportedly told The Jerusalem Post it will not go into effect until the Israeli cabinet ratifies the agreement and UAE officials reportedly said there will be references to a two-state solution.

President Trump declared the agreement “the dawn of a new Middle East” in a speech delivered at the signing ceremony.

“We’re here this afternoon to change the course of history. After decades of division and conflict, we mark the dawn of a new Middle East,” Trump said.

“Thanks to the great courage of the leaders of these three countries, we take a major stride toward a future in which people of all faiths and backgrounds live together in peace and prosperity,” he said.

The president said the accord “will serve as the foundation for a comprehensive peace across the entire region.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said this moment marked a “pivot of history” and a “new dawn of peace,” praising President Trump for his work on the agreement.

“To all of Israel’s friends in the Middle East, those who are with us today and those who will join us tomorrow, I say, ‘As-salamu alaykum.’ Peace unto thee. Shalom,” Netanyahu said.

“The blessings of peace that we make today will be enormous,” he continued, “first because this peace will eventually expand to include other Arab states, and ultimately, it can end the Arab-Israel conflict once and for all.”

UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan added more optimistic remarks, saying “We are witnessing today a new trend that will create a new path for the Middle East.”

But he also spoke to the Palestinian people, noting the Abraham Accords “will enable us to stand with the Palestinians and enable their hopes of establishing a Palestinian state” and thanking Netanyahu for “halting annexation of Palestinian territories.”

Those overtures to the Palestinians may fall on deaf ears. According to the AP, in addition to the rocket attacks Palestinians expressed their outrage in the West Bank and in Gaza by trampling on and setting fires to pictures of Trump, Netanyahu, and the leaders of the UAE and Bahrain.

The peace accords were not well-received in Bahrain either, where the AP reports the Shiite opposition group Al-Wefaq released a statement condemning normalized relations with the “Zionist entity.”

Nevertheless, President Trump has promoted the deal as the first step in reaching a broad agreement to secure peace in the Middle East. In an interview with “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning, Trump said his administration is negotiating with several other Arab states and predicted that Palestine “will come to the table” when everyone else is on board.

“They’re actually getting to a point where they’re going to want to make a deal. They won’t say that outwardly. They want to make a deal,” Trump said. “Otherwise, they will be left out in the cold.”

autumn basic human rights benjamin netanyahu commands control Coronavirus COVID-19 economic terrorism Emergency Preparedness enslavement Forecasting freedom of movement freeedom of assembly harsh Headline News Holiday Infection rates Intelwars ISRAEL LIES lockdown Mainstream media new orders New World Order Obey propaganda rolling out SLAVERY United States Yom Kippur

Israel Begins Second Lockdown, Economy Will Close Again Friday

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday ordered a new countrywide lockdown for the coronavirus plandemic. Schools and most other parts of the economy are expected to shut down again in a bid to “bring down infection rates.”

Beginning Friday, the start of the Jewish High Holiday season, schools, restaurants, malls, and hotels will shut down, among other businesses, and Israelis will face restrictions on their freedom of movement and on gathering together, their basic right to freedom of assembly.

“Our goal is to stop the increase (in cases) and lower morbidity,” Netanyahu said in a nationally broadcast statement according to Voice of America News. “I know that these steps come at a difficult price for all of us. This is not the holiday we are used to.” That “price” isn’t high for the government, but it’s eternal enslavement for the rest of us.

A second lockdown is looking extremely likely in the United States as well. As we approach fall and the mainstream media continues to perpetuate the fear propaganda,  Dr. Anthony Fauci is also warning us that there is going to be more terrorism committed against the public. We may have seen nothing yet.

The terroristic lockdown is Israel’s second.  The country’s first lockdown destroyed the economy, sending unemployment skyrocketing, and all but ruied the country.  This new lockdown will remain in place for at least three weeks, at which point officials may relax measures if numbers are seen declining. Israelis typically hold large family gatherings and fill synagogues during the important fast of Yom Kippur later this month, settings that officials feared could trigger new outbreaks.

The Persecution Of Christians Is Escalating Dramatically All Over The World

Some government ministers in Israel are wholly blaming the public.  They have pointed fingers at what they’ve called an “undisciplined public,” who they have accused of violating restrictions against public gatherings and mask-wearing. Basically, all of the world’s governments are saying we deserve to have our basic humanity and freedom destroyed because we disobeyed and wanted to take life’s risks upon ourselves, taking the chance that we could get sick.  We live in a disturbing society when the government is balming our enslavement on us when they are the ones continually trying to control and dictate our every move.

If you still think the government is going to help you, you may be in for a shock. People are already struggling to eat and pay for their basic necessities. A second lockdown would finish off what’s left of the middle class for good.

Brace yourselves, and take the time to do an audit of your preps right now. Be prepared for what can come, and it’s not looking good. Stay alert and make sure you understand that this is not about health, it never was. This is about control. Adjust your preparations accordingly (like “beefing up” your self defense capabilities.)

Bahrain Intelwars ISRAEL Israel peace MIDDLE EAST Peace deal

President Trump announces another Middle East peace deal — this time between Israel and Bahrain

President Donald Trump announced another peace deal Friday, as Israel and Bahrain established diplomatic relations just weeks after a similar agreement was struck between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Fox News reported.

Bahrain becomes just the fourth country in the region to establish formal peaceful ties with Israel, joining Egypt, Jordan, and UAE. President Trump was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his role in the deal between Israel and UAE.

“This is a historic breakthrough to further peace in the Middle East,” a joint statement from the U.S., Bahrain, and Israel said. “Opening direct dialogue and ties between these two dynamic societies and advanced economies will continue the positive transformation of the Middle East and increase stability, security, and prosperity in the region.”

The announcement of the deal comes on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and President Trump pointed out the significance of pushing for peace in the region.

“There’s no more powerful response to the hatred that spawned 9/11 than this agreement,” Trump said.

CNN reported that officials believe this deal could be significant toward a potential agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia, since Bahrain is viewed in some ways as an extension of Saudi Arabia:

Bahrain, a tiny island nation that is home to the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet, is regarded in some ways as an extension of Saudi Arabia, partly because they are physically linked by a causeway but also because the Bahraini monarchy is heavily reliant on Riyadh.

Officials said the agreement with Israel announced on Friday could likely not have happened without Saudi Arabia’s blessing, signaling that Bahrain may serve as a test case for a future Saudi-Israel deal.

A signing ceremony that will include Bahrain, UAE, and Israel is scheduled on Tuesday.

The White House emphasized the impact of the agreements as Trump runs for reelection, pointing out the historic nature of the peace deals and using them as examples of the president’s desire to end long-term conflicts in the region.

“This is an extraordinary achievement,” White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern told Fox News. “The president made the first major breakthrough like this in 26 years. In less than a month, he’s made yet another one.”

Barack Obama Christian tybring-gjedde Donald Trump Intelwars ISRAEL Nobel Peace Prize United Arab Emirates

President Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize; person behind nomination slams Obama

President Donald Trump has officially been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of Norway’s Parliament, said Trump is deserving of the esteemed award because of his efforts to broker peaceful relationships between countries, specifically citing the historic peace treaty between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

What did Tybring-Gjedde say?

In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Tybring-Gjedde said the Nobel Prize Committee should examine Trump’s record, for they will find that it is much more impressive than former President Barack Obama’s.

Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde said.

“I’m not a big Trump supporter. The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts — not on the way he behaves sometimes,” the Norwegian lawmaker continued. “The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing.”

In his letter to the Nobel Prize Committee, Tybring-Gjedde explained the significance of the Israel-UAE peace deal.

“As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity,” he wrote, adding Trump has played a “key role in facilitating contact between conflicting parties and … creating new dynamics in other protracted conflicts, such as the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan, and the conflict between North and South Korea, as well as dealing with the nuclear capabilities of North Korea.”

“Indeed, Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict. The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter,” Tybring-Gjedde went on to write.

Why did Obama win the prize?

According to the Nobel Prize Committee, Obama won the award for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population,” the committee said in 2009.

In 2015, the ex-secretary of the Nobel Prize Committee, Geir Lundestad — who chaired the committee in 2009 — revealed he regretted giving Obama the award.

Iran Seeks Revenge For Sabotage Attack On Natanz Nuclear Plant

Iran has identified the perpetrators of an act of sabotage at Natanz nuclear facility in the central part of the country in July, according to a spokesperson for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran. Behrouz Kamalvandi said that while the details of the act of sabotage are still being investigated, the security forces “have detected the agents [who committed the act of sabotage] as well as the motive, methods and manner of the sabotage.”

The AEOI for the first time described the July 2 incident at the Natanz nuclear facility as a sabotage attack on July 23, and since then pro-Iranian sources have repeatedly vowed to take revenge for the attack.

Meanwhile, Iran’s Defence Minister Amir Hatami announced that the country is working to expand its missile capabilities even further. In particular, the military is working on air-launched cruise missiles that would be able to hit targets in the range of up to 1,400km.

These statements cause expected concern in Israel, the United States and Saudi Arabia, as the main geopolitical opponents of Iran in the region. They also claim that Teheran has been ramping up its proxy efforts against the Saudi-Israeli-US block in Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

Despite loud claims by Iranian officials and state-linked media, Iran is in fact not interested in an open military confrontation with the US-Israeli alliance. Therefore, it is logical that the Iranian response to the Natanz attack will likely be asymmetric. The recently increased IED attacks on US convoys and rocket strikes on US-affiliated facilities in Iraq could be a part of this campaign.

At the same time, Israel has been actively strengthening security measures on the contact lines with Lebanon and Syria, and continues its low intensity bombing campaign against ‘Iranian-linked targets’ in Syria.

Israel’s plan to secretly fund pro-Israel groups in the U.S.

‘The repeated efforts to push Israeli government money into American Jewish institutions comes at a time of heightened sensitivities over foreign governments’ quiet attempts to use money to influence American discourse. And they come from a ministry whose actions, even within Israel, are veiled in secrecy.’

The extent to which groups are ‘seeking to go around FARA regulations and disguise the role of foreign governments in these activities, that does raise some problematic questions.’

Israel: intelligence minister insists no F-35s for UAE

Israel’s Minister of Intelligence insisted on Sunday that it is impossible for the UAE to be allowed to buy advanced US-made F-35 jet fighters, Kan TV has reported.

“We will act against the sale of F-35s to the UAE,” said Eli Cohen. “We oppose [it].”

Cohen stressed that Israel would not allow the UAE or, indeed, any other countries in the Middle East to purchase the jets. This is, he explained, because the sale of such military hardware would affect Israel’s military hegemony in the region.

He made his comments despite the announcement of a full normalisation deal between Israel and the UAE on 13 August. They echo similar remarks by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Office.

War of nerves: Israel begs Hezbollah to retaliate

As we explained in our article What happened —and didn’t happen— at the Israel-Lebanon border?, Israel has been on high alert at its northern border since its July 20 strike in Damascus that killed a Hezbollah fighter. Three similar experiences have proven, in 2014, 2015 and 2019, that a bloody retaliation is inevitable, and fear has paralyzed northern occupied Palestine for more than a month. But the excruciating pressure of waiting is so unbearable on the Israeli side —it has already claimed the life of a soldier when his vehicle overturned near the Lebanese border, probably due to panic— that after trying to neutralize Hezbollah’s response by a pitiful letter of apology and then by a ridiculous sham on July 27, claiming to have repelled an imaginary infiltration attempt, the Hebrew state has committed a third action even more stupid —and fraught with consequences— by replaying the scenario of the phantom attack and by carrying out defensive strikes (illuminating shells & smoke bombs) against southern Lebanon on the night of August 25 to 26.

When Gaza City became a ghost town

The nickname became increasingly relevant lately. The shutdown of Gaza’s only power plant meant that lights often could not be switched on at nighttime.

“I used to meet up with friends in the evening hours,” said Ahmad Khalid, 29, during the power outages. “But with the electricity crisis, I hate going out of the house now and seeing darkness everywhere. It’s as if we are ghosts walking in the street.”

The crisis was caused because Israel banned fuel deliveries to Gaza’s power station last month.

Hypocrisy Thy Name Is Zion

There is a tendency on the part of major Jewish groups in the United States and in Europe to discover what they describe as anti-Semitism wherever one turns. Last month, a statue of the well-known and highly respected 18th century French writer and political philosopher Voltaire was removed from outside the Académie Française in Paris. Voltaire was a major figure in the “Enlightenment,” during which what we now call science and applied rationalism challenged the authority of the church and the King.

The statue had recently been vandalized by the French version of Black Lives Matter (BLM) because Voltaire had reportedly invested in the French East India Company, which engaged in the triangular trade between Europe, Africa and the New World. The commodities included Africans who were destined to become slaves in the European colonies. Beyond that Voltaire, a man of his times, believed blacks to have “little or no intelligence” and also considered Jews to be born “with raging fanaticism in their hearts.”

Voltaire was reportedly much admired by Hitler, so perhaps it would not be off base to suggest that in France, where the Jewish community is extremely powerful while Africans are not, it was Voltaire cast as the anti-Semite that consigned his statue to a government warehouse never to be seen again. By that reasoning, one expects that the world will soon have a ban on the music of Richard Wagner and Ludwig van Beethoven as they too were admired by Hitler.
