Abbas did not visit any of Lebanon’s twelve official Palestinian refugee camps, opting instead to enjoy the luxury of Phoenicia Intercontinental hotel on Beirut’s waterfront. But Abbas did have the time to present a Palestinian passport and honorary citizenship to the Lebanese pop singer Ragheb Alameh.
British govt. condemns Israeli settlement expansion
Reports this week of the radical Islamist opposition in Syria massacring Kurds in the northern Syria is a disturbing development, but not nearly as disturbing as the strategic silence on the issue by the US and European government-media complex.
According to reports from the village of Tal Abyad near the Turkish border on Monday, jihadist terror brigades massacred some 450 residents, including 330 women and elderly, along with 120 youths and elderly near the Turkish border.
So now, the US government is geopolitically in bed with Al-Qaeda-alligned mercs who murder women, children, and the medically fragile elderly?!?
I nearly got physically ill reading this.
That United States of America in which I thought I lived, where leadership its fought for democracy, human rights, and human dignity, both nationally and internationally, exists no more.
We have a despicable field of alleged American leaders who only care about themselves, and their very monied friends. The national government is of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations; at least, as long as the ponzi scheme known as “private central banking” can continue to exist.
MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS OF THE MIDDLE-EAST, HEED MY WORDS…
You have been victims of a divide-and-conquer strategy that has completely demoralized your people, created strife and tension and disunity which has successfully pitted Shia against Sunni, Muslim against Christian, Kurdish against their neighbors, and vice-versa on all previous groups mentioned, all benefitting the furtherance of “The jewish Utopia.” http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=70583
It is zionism/israel/zOGs-of-USA-UK-Etc., that are MANIPULATING, FINANCING, RADICALIZING, and COORDINATING the proxies known as “the rebels” in Syria, as they did in Libya; however, there is one very big difference between what they did in Libya, to what they are doing in Syria:
THE WORLD NOW KNOWS WHO IS BEHIND “the rebels.”
A group of Jewish settlers seized agricultural lands in the Bethlehem village of al-Khader southern occupied West Bank on Saturday.
Settlers from Elazar settlement, led by the extremist settler Nadia Matar’s organization “women in green”, have seized an agriculture land belonging to a Palestinian farmer in the village, said Ahmed Salah the coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlement in al-Khader village.
The settlers planted the confiscated land, belonging to Ibrahim Odeh Salah, with olive trees, the local activist added.
Two factors have diminished the sway that the United States once gained by doling out foreign aid: less money and more competition.
Constant obedience to Israel by the US did not help either.
One more big attack and Israel is toast!
The Syrian/Russian retaliation “in kind” statement obviously would include strikes against Israel’s ability to defend itself, so that further aggression on its part would be much more risky. It is called having a credible deterrent, which kept us all alive during the Cold War.
The Russians will hold their fire until Israel launches a major strike on Syria where it would be clear to the world that is was a major aggression.
The old saying goes be careful what you wish for. You may get more than you bargained for. Washington’s wars often don’t turn out as planned.
Israel plans to build its ‘safety wall’ straight through the grounds of a monastery in the Cremisan valley, claiming 75% of the property. Yet Israel pledged to respect international laws and the sanctity of all religious locations. In spite of this pledge, the IDF raided the place on a Sunday.
