Stephanie Banister, Australian Politician, Thinks ‘Islam Is A Country’ And ‘Jews Follow Jesus’


Make one gaffe in a two-minute interview and you could forgiven, but make at least three and people are going to start raising some eyebrows.

In a short TV interview with Australia’s Channel 7 News, Brisbane parliamentary candidate Stephanie Banister said Islam was a country, said Jewish people follow Jesus and praised a government programme that does not start for another three years.

“I don’t oppose Islam as a country but I do feel their laws should not be welcome here in Australia,” she said.
Islam is not a country.

Banister wants halal food to be banned. But does not have a problem with kosher food being sold.

“Jews aren’t under haram, they have their own religion which follows Jesus Christ,” she said.

Judaism does not follow Jesus Christ.

In the interview Banister is also asked what she thinks of the Australian government’s National Disability Scheme, the NDIS.

“I believe that the disability scheme is working at the moment,” she said.

The NDIS does not start until 2016.

The 27-year-old candidate for the One Nation party could be disqualified for standing for election after being charged for placing stickers on products in a Brisbane supermarket that read “halal food funds terrorism”.

Banister told Fairfax media that she had been mis-represented in the interview. ”Unfortunately, they’ve completely twisted all my words and made me out to be a stand-up criminal and a stupid moron,” she said.

Former Zio-Nazi intel chief: US coming around to an IsraHell strike on Iran



Amos Yadlin’s comments follow calls by Iran’s new president for new ‘talks, not threats,’ and demands by Netanyahu for increased pressure and sanctions

Times of Israel

US opposition to an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear program may be softening, a former head of IDF intelligence said Wednesday.

“The American stance on an Israeli strike against Iran has changed dramatically recently,” said Amos Yadlin, who served as chief of the IDF’s Intelligence Directorate from 2006 to 2010.

“In 2012 the [Americans’] red light was as red as it can get, the brightest red,” Yadlin said in an interview with Army Radio Wednesday morning. “But the music I’m hearing lately from Washington says, ‘If this is truly an overriding Israeli security interest, and you think you want to strike,’ then the light hasn’t changed to green, I think, but it’s definitely yellow.”

Yadlin is thought to be close to parts of the US defense establishment. He served as Israel’s military attache in Washington from 2004 to 2006, and was a Kay Fellow in Israeli national security at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy in 2011.

In April, Yadlin told a conference at the Institute for National Security Studies, which he heads, that Israel would have to make a decision on striking Iran by the summer of this year.

“For all intents and purposes, Iran has crossed Israel’s red line… in the summer, Iran will be a month or two away from deciding about a bomb.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to Yadlin’s comments then by saying Iran had not yet crossed his “red line.”

Yadlin is a veteran of Israeli anti-nuclear strikes in the past. He was one of the eight pilots who conducted Operation Opera, which destroyed Iraq’s nuclear reactor at Osirak in 1981, and was head of IDF intelligence during the September 2007 strike against Syria’s fledgling nuclear program deep in the country’s northern desert.

Israel has not formally acknowledged responsibility for the Syria strike, but is widely believed, including by former senior officials, to have carried it out.

Yadlin’s comments came on the heels of a Tuesday press conference in Tehran in which Iran’s new president, Hasan Rouhani, said Iran is ready for “serious” and swift talks with world powers over its controversial nuclear program.

The press conference was Rouhani’s first as Iran’s president, and was immediately dismissed by Netanyahu, who called for increased pressure on the Iranian regime.

The cleric won a landslide victory in June presidential elections and took the oath of office on Sunday.

“We are ready to engage in serious and substantial talks without wasting time,” Rouhani said, but warned that Iran’s interactions with the West should be based on “talks, not threats.”

Many Iranians and foreign diplomats hope Rouhani, a former top nuclear negotiator, can strike a more conciliatory tone in the talks. Four rounds of negotiations since last year have failed to make significant headway.

But in Israel, Netanyahu urged the international community to step up pressure on Tehran.

“Iran’s president said that pressure won’t work. Not true! The only thing that has worked in the last two decades is pressure. And the only thing that will work now is increased pressure,” Netanyahu said in comments released by his office after meeting with US lawmakers.

Netanyahu has said that despite Rouhani’s moderate speech, he believes the Iranian leader backs enriching uranium for nuclear weapons.

The US and its allies fear Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon, a charge Tehran denies, saying its atomic program is meant for peaceful purposes only.

Rouhani replaced Ahmadinejad, who struck a hardline approach when dealing with the West and its sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program. The sanctions have hit the country’s economy hard, decimating its vital oil exports and blocking transactions on international banking networks.

Though all Iranian policies, including the nuclear issue, are firmly in the hands of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, a strong president can influence decision-making. Rouhani has in the past said that he would make it his priority to get the sanctions against Iran lifted.

“I, as the president of Iran, announce that Iran has a serious political will to solve the (nuclear) problem while protecting the rights of the Iranian people at the same time as it seeks to remove concerns of the other party,” Rouhani told reporters in Tehran.

Rouhani’s inauguration “presents an opportunity for Iran to act quickly to resolve the international community’s deep concerns over their nuclear program,” said US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

But she added, “there are steps they need to take to meet their international obligations and find a peaceful solution to this issue, and the ball is in their court.”

Earlier on Tuesday, the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, called on Rouhani to schedule “meaningful talks” on the nuclear issue as soon as possible.

Spokesman Michael Mann said Ashton congratulated Rouhani on his inauguration and urged him to use his strong mandate “to seek a swift resolution to (the international community’s) serious concerns about Iran’s nuclear activities.”

Ashton said she and the group of nations negotiating with Iran — the five permanent UN Security Council nations plus Germany — “stand ready to continue talks to find a resolution as quickly as possible.”

Rouhani has repeatedly said that he believes it’s possible to strike an agreement that would allow the Islamic Republic to keep enriching uranium — the core issue at the center of the nuclear controversy and a potential pathway to atomic weapons — while assuring the West it will not produce nuclear arms.

On Tuesday, he said uranium enrichment is Iran’s right, as it is for any other country, but that he would look to “remove mutual concerns, achieve mutual interests and a win-win deal for both sides.”

In efforts to get Iran to account for its nuclear ambitions, President Barack Obama and other Western leaders remain publicly committed to diplomacy though they stress military options against Iranian nuclear sites are not off the table.

Rouhani indicated he would “not have any problem to talk” directly to Washington and to “whoever wants to talk to us in good will … even if it is the US,” as long as the other party is “serious about talks and abandons the language of pressure and threat.”

Rouhani admitted, however, that there is a “long way to go until the point” when Iran would allow the US consulate to resume work in Tehran.

The United States cut diplomatic ties with Iran after militant students stormed the US Embassy in Tehran to protest Washington’s support for deposed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi following the country’s 1979 revolution. The revolution toppled the pro-US monarchy and brought Islamic clerics to power.

Settler leaders look to influence US policy


Sensitive to Republican mistrust of Obama’s foreign policy, Dani Dayan tells House leaders that the peace process would harm US interests


Israeli settler leader Dani Dayan has made it his mission over the years to warn members of Congress, particularly Republicans, of the perils of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

Dayan has been a regular visitor to Washington, his trips often coinciding with developments in the peace process. During the Annapolis talks in 2007-08, Dayan would watch Israeli officials as they met with the media in the lobby of the venerable Mayflower Hotel, just blocks from the White House, and then move in to offer his own spin.

In June, Dayan met with GOP House leaders in a meeting organized with help from the Zionist Organization of America. The meeting was followed by a Washington Jewish Week report that another settler leader, Gershon Mesika, met with 20 Congress members just days before the relaunch of peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians.

The intensive cultivation of relationships on Capitol Hill appears to be bearing fruit.

Within days of talks kicking off in Washington last week, Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.), a freshman who attended the June meeting with Dayan, drafted a letter asking the US attorney general to hinder the release of Palestinian prisoners — a move approved by Israel to help kick-start negotiations.

Dayan didn’t ask Salmon to write the letter. That request was made by the Endowment for Middle East Truth, a conservative lobby funded in part by gaming billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

But the congressional measures now being undertaken to impact the trajectory of peace talks have their roots in the warm relations that settlers and their American friends have forged in Congress over the past two decades.

“It was important to meet with the Yesha people,” a GOP official said of the June meeting, using the Hebrew acronym for the settlers’ council, “to find out who the settlers are, what they feel obstacles to peace are, what Judea and Samaria means from a historical perspective.”

In addition to Salmon’s letter, a perennial effort to tighten a 1995 law requiring the United States to move its embassy to Jerusalem reappeared just as talks resumed. The strengthened law would remove a presidential waiver that has enabled successive presidents to delay the move on the grounds of national security.

Members of Congress behind both initiatives deny that the measures — neither in timing nor in substance — are intended to scuttle the peace talks. On the contrary, the lawmakers say they are intended to improve the chances of success for the talks by strengthening Israel’s bargaining position and making American parameters clear to the Palestinians.

“There will never be clear sailing as long as there are people who do not recognize Israel as a Jewish nation,” said Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.), one of the sponsors of the new Jerusalem bill.

But the settler leaders and the right-wing pro-Israel groups that support them are more blunt about their objectives.

“I told the congresspersons that the strategic choice that John Kerry made to go on with the conventional peace process to try to renew negotiations … will have catastrophic consequences for the American national interests,” Dayan said. “Because when he fails — and he will fail — the fact that the secretary of state of the United States failed will be noticed very clearly in Tehran and in Damascus and in Moscow and in Pyongyang.”

Daniel Mandel, the director of ZOA’s Center for Middle East Policy, said his group was gearing up to push back against talks it believes are doomed because the Palestinians remain unwilling to accept Israel’s existence as a Jewish state.

“Our strategy now that negotiations have resumed is to unblinkingly focus on the unregenerative nature of Abbas’ Palestinian Authority,” Mandel said, referring to Mahmoud Abbas, the P.A. president.

Efforts to exert congressional pressure to affect the outcome of peace talks are not new.

Following the launch of the Oslo peace process in the early 1990s, right-wing Israelis and their allies helped pass a congressional bill that would move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — a move that would buttress Israeli claims to the city whose ultimate fate was to be determined by Israelis and Palestinians.

A separate bill sought to prevent US troops from patrolling the Golan Heights to help cement a peace deal with Syria. Yitzhak Rabin, then the Israeli prime minister, expressed his frustration at both moves.

Back then, the right-wingers had mainstream allies; the American Israel Public Affairs Committee lobbied for the Jerusalem law. AIPAC did not respond to requests for comment on the new Jerusalem bill, which is backed by the ZOA.

Republican House officials say their members are deeply skeptical about the renewed talks, which were launched after an intensive round of shuttle diplomacy by Kerry. Sensitive to Republican mistrust of President Obama’s foreign policy agenda, Dayan said he attempted to persuade House leaders that the peace process would harm US interests.

“I would like Congress to explain to the State Department that this is a morally improper way to conduct diplomacy,” Dayan in an interview this week.

Sarah Stern, the director of the Endowment for Middle East Truth, said her primary concern was for the families of those killed by the released prisoners, but she acknowledged there was a dividend in alerting Americans to the dangers of the peace process.

“I can’t petition the Israeli government as an American citizen, I can only petition our officials,” Stern said. “But as a sidebar, it’s painful to see Israel has to go through so much just to get the Palestinians to sit down, and it’s a very sad thing that Israel has been subject to so much pressure by Kerry.”

WAKE UP AMERICA: Video of Cop Slapping 10-Year-Old Boy Stirs Outrage



Police were removing child from mother’s care

By Paul Joseph Watson

A YouTube video of a police officer in Oregon slapping a 10-year-old boy as he removed the child from the care of his mother has stirred outrage.

The clip shows an officer from the Eugene Police Department hauling away the child as onlookers tell the boy to run.

The officer then appears to slap or lightly punch the boy in the face, before claiming the boy had bit his hand.

“You do not hit an underaged child,” shouts one bystander as others threaten to file lawsuits against the cop.

“You don’t know who you’re messing with!” shouts another youth as he threatens to attack the facility that the boy will be held in.

However, some have defended the actions of the officer, with the Eugene Police Department saying his behavior was “calm and professional”.

While the circumstances of removing the boy from his mother were obviously fraught with emotion, the child had been staying with 28-year-old Stephanie Johnston for years despite a court order granting the father, Brian Wolfe, custody of the child.

During the clip, the boy claims that Wolfe is not his real father.

According to reports, the boy was illiterate, did not attend school and was living in a bus.

The case is being referred to the Lane County District Attorney’s Office but no charges have been filed at this time. The Department of Human Services is also investigating the matter.

Senator calls for reduction of US aid to IsraHell


US Senator Zionist Rand Paul
US Senator Zionist Rand Paul has called for a reduction of American foreign aid, even to allies like the IsraHell regime, during his visit to IsraHell.

In a speech at the Jerusalem Institute for Market Studies on Monday, the Kentucky Senator, recently selected to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said that the United States would be a friend of IsraHell, but “it will be harder and harder to be a friend if we are out of money.”

Zionist Paul, who is a long-time opponent of giving foreign aid, said that it was one thing if you were giving foreign assistance out of your savings, but it was something very different if “you are borrowing from one country to give to another. You have to wonder how wide that is, and what the repercussions will be.”

Regarding the US administration’s move in providing the Tel Aviv regime with US arms, the Republican Senator, The son of the retired Texas Representative Zionist Ron Paul, said that it should not be “a one-way street, it would be a sale, not a grant.”

Zionist Paul, who repeatedly cited IsraHell Prime Minister Benjamin Naziyahu’s speech in 1996 that he planned to wean Tel Aviv off US aid, stressed that cutting aid to IsraHell would help it retain its own sovereignty and not “come on bended knee” to ask for permission from the US government for every issue.

IsraHell receives USD3 billion a year from the United States in military aid.

Zionist Paul arrived in IsraHell on Sunday and was expected to meet with Naziyahu and Zio-Nazi Shimon Peres on Monday. He will travel to Jordan on Tuesday to meet with Zionist Puppet King Abdullah and Acting Palestinian Authority chief Zionist Puppet Mahmoud Abbas.

Reports say that Zionist Paul’s visit to IsraHell was aimed at heightening the Senator’s international profile and fuelling speculation that he would be a likely 2016 presidential candidate.

‘They’ came to kill Syrian people

Author : Dina Y. Sulaiman
With a help from a friend of mine, I could interview a senior Syrian journalist. The following is my interview with the journalist. However, to protect his personal security, I could not reveal his true identity. I blurred his face in photo on purpose to, again, hide his identity. We could call him Mr. As-Souri. Actually, the questions I asked him were merely a confirmation of what I have already known so far. But this conversation has a significance because it is a scientific research with qualitative methods-my conversation with him could be called ‘primary data’. 
Dina [D]: Which city do you live in?
As-Souri [S]: in the city *****
D: O I see .. I heard that city. It was the origin of a Muslim scholar who has aggressively undertaken such a form of rebellion against the government. His name is ******* What do you think about him?
S: Do you want the real answer?
D: Of course.
S: He’s a bad guy, and was involved in a sex scandal. Then he went abroad and is now living there.
D: But I saw on the internet, there have been people’s demonstrations cheering his name?
S: Yes, indeed he has supporters but not many, probably 5-10%
D: So, what exactly is going on in Syria?

S: Well, I’ll explain both fairly and honestly. I’m ** years of age. Throughout my life, I have not even known what religion embraced by my neighbors. I do not care what school of thought of the person sitting next to me. That’s our life. The important thing for us is their heart and behavior. Syria is for all, Christians, Sunnis, Shi’ites, Druzes, Alawis, Jews

D: But there is a rebel group, al-jabhah nusrah declaring the caliphate.
S: They are not the people of Syria. Their troops come from 40 foreign countries. They came to kill the people of Syria.
D: If Assad was not involved in an allegedly problem, of course there would be no opposition of the people?

S: Bashar Assad is a very intelligent president. As soon as there was a demonstration, he invited them to sit together, discussing what they want. Assad even approved the amendment of Law on demand of the protesters. Then, a referendum was conducted to seek the people’s approval on the new law. And now we have already had the new law. But they have not stopped (demonstrating) yet. Here’s the proof, they want Syria to be destroyed, instead of creating democracy or freedom.
The proofs were, they killed doctors, engineers, pilots who were on their way to the airport. For what? Was that taught in Islam? They kidnapped people and asked for ransom. Is this Islam?

You know, every morning my wife is crying after the dawn prayer. She cries while praying for Syria. For us, Bashar is not important. The important thing is Syria. They were destroying Syria. Syria was completely alone. Whereas Syria has so far supported the Arab nationalism. Syria has been loyal to the Arab countries. All people of Arab countries could free entry into Syria without a visa.

D: Some news mentioned Shabiha [pro-Assad militia] had killed civilians?
S: [shaking his head] no .. no .. they [rebels] killed the civilians and accused Assad’s army of killing them.

D: Some people consider that the uprising in Syria is jihad. What do you think?
S: I already told you. During my ** years of age, I have even not not known what religion embraced by my neighbors. We have so far lived in peace, regardless of our religion. Then all of a sudden they came from overseas and killed us. Is this jihad? The Prophet (PBUH) said [he cited the hadith] killing one believer was much worse than destroying the Kaaba. Killing one man is the same as killing one ummah. They bombed schools, universities, was all this jihad?

You know how the Prophet used to live? The Prophet had a Jewish neighbor who every morning put dirt on his doorstep. But the Prophet did not say anything, did not do anything against the Jew. One morning, the Prophet found, there was no dirt on his doorstep. Immediately the Prophet went to the Jew and asked, “Are you fine?”.
Then the Jews answered, “Yes, I’m fine, why are you asking how I was?” The Prophet replied, “Usually you put dirt on my doorstep, but this morning you did not. I was worried you were sick.” The Jew who was impressed by the Pophet’s noble character converted to Islam by pronouncing shahadah.[[[There is a very well-known Muslim scholar in Syria, Sheikh Al Buthy. All his life, he has never held a weapon. He has written some 21 very good books about Islam. But they killed him. Was this jihad?]]]
[[[[Their goal was to destroy Syria, for the sake of Israel. We are not a rich country, but also not poor. Unlike other Arab countries having a lot of debt to the West, we have no debt. Syria is pioneering the construction of a gas pipeline from Iran to Iraq to be flowed through Syria to the Mediterranean. If this could be materialized. Syria will be very rich and stronger. Israel is reaaly worried if it could come true.]]]]
D: Then, why were there Muslims who wanted to come to Syria to fight?

S: Some of them were not well-educated so that they did not realize what they were doing. Most of them were poor and wanted to fight for being promised money from Qatar and Saudi Arabia. They were also given the drug. Once a rebel was arrested when was was dancing. He was locked in a cell. The next morning, he was found wailing, “Why am I here? What am I doing here? “Syrian army found smuggled pills of hallucination. The pills were widely circulated in Syria and consumed by the rebels.

D: There are some Indonesian Muslim activists calling for Indonesian Muslims to conduct jihad in Syria. What do you think?

S: [shaking his head with sad face] I’m sorry to hear that. I love the people of Indonesia. Why do they want to kill us? They say jihad in Syria will make them go to heaven. Though there are many ways to get into heaven. Why are we killed? Why don’t they go for jihad to Palestine? One day there was a seriously wounded rebel helped by a doctor. After recovering, he was angry at the doctor. He said, “Why did you save me?! If I’m dead, now I must be having dinner with the Messenger of Allah! “
[We then talked about many things related to the culture of Syria, among others, habits of getting together to share food during Ramadan. Mr Souri and his wife every day used to cook the food and then distributed to their neighbors-regardless of their religion and school of thoughts and vice versa, they used to receive a distribution of food from their neighbors. The dining table was always filled with food given by many people. In the mosque, iftar was provided freely. Mr. Souri also told a story that in Syria, there have been many Christians with their own sects and they could freely have their own church.]

D: [Saying goodbye]S: Come to Syria. Write a book about the beauty of Syria. Syria is a beautiful country. We are the ones who are cheerful. Every weekend we used to bring the food and then go to an open field and spread the mat. We were sitting around and talking, the children ran excitedly to and fro.
D: and now …?S: [shaking his head with a sad look on his face]

Targetting Lebanon! Syrian Man, Woman Arrested in Dahieh over ‘Security Plot’

A man and a woman were arrested on Wednesday evening in Beirut’s southern suburbs on charges of plotting an act of sabotage, according to media reports. “A man and a woman, both Syrian nationals, were arrested in Dahieh after the interception of their phone conversations with a group in Majdal Anjar revealed that they were plotting a security operation against Dahieh,” a Hizbullah stronghold, al-Jadeed television quoted a security source as saying.
 MTV said the duo were apprehended by agents from the army’s Intelligence Directorate. Hizbullah sources told al-Jadeed that “Dahieh’s security is a priority and the army is handling the matter.” “Investigations are underway in a normal manner to know more details about the arrested group which was plotting attacks,” the sources added. An Egyptian national was killed and two other people were wounded on Sunday when they were setting up explosive devices in Mount Lebanon’s Iqlim al-Kharroub’s region. Several other explosive devices were found at their house in addition to a map containing three target places for bomb attacks — al-Saadiyat, Wadi al-Zeina and Hadath.

The Brothers Deeb: A Family’s Terrorism Saga

 The story of the Hajj Deeb family is like no other. A poor home with 10 male children who became infamous in the world of terrorism. The killing of the most famous son sparked the Nahr al-Bared battles. Now, the next generation is carrying on the family legacy in Syria.According to Abu Abdel-Nasser, the “young men” from Fatah al-Islam, that Saddam joined, were “some of the purest young men under the Lebanese skies. But they were slaughtered like innocent sheep.
They never hurt anyone. It is the security forces that pulled them into their filthy game.” “Future Movement brought Fatah al-Islam to fight the Shia,” the father explains. “But they refused to turn their weapons against anyone except the Americans and the Israelis. So they were liquidated.” But how does he explain one son fighting the army in which his older brother serves? “My son was not killed in a war against the army, but against America, which was moving the pawns here,” he replies. He says he buried his son Saddam with his own hands. His body “was charred after he was burned with 18 others on Meatein Street. Some of them had nothing to do with the situation.” At numbers nine and 10 are Hamza and Yusuf, respectively.
The first studied history and geography, but cannot find work. Yusuf, the youngest in the family, is imprisoned for life in Germany. The father describes how he had to borrow money for his son to travel to Germany to study engineering. But one of his relatives, Khair al-Din al-Hajj Deeb led him astray. His brother Ahmad went there to look for him. However, he ended up suggesting to Yusuf that he should carry out an operation to scare the Germans for supporting Israel, according to the father. The father explains that Yusuf refused the idea, but Ahmad insisted. So they booby-trapped a gas canister and put it on a train. “Ahmad was sentenced to 12 years in prison in Lebanon and Yusuf is in jail for life in Germany after they were both caught by security cameras,” the father concludes.
Abdel-Nasser’s never-ending story with terrorism continues. Recently, his brother Malek’s son was killed along with his own grandson Abdel-Hakim Ibrahim in the Tal Kalakh ambush. “They were nurses and got upset with what was happening in Syria, so they decided to join the jihad there,” the old man explains. “But a Syrian regime collaborator informed about the group.” And what about the student officer who was detained in the War College for communicating with an armed group? He’s a relative. The boy has the Quran memorized and he would never hurt anyone, the father explains.

Sources: Shaker Attended Ain el-Hilweh Iftar Along with Wanted Militants


Singer-turned Salafist Fadel Shaker, who has gone into hiding since his involvement in clashes between Islamists and the Lebanese army in June, has appeared at an Iftar at the Ain el-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp in the South, security sources said. The sources told pan-Arab daily al-Hayat published on Thursday that Shaker is residing at al-Taamir neighborhood of the camp that lies near the southern city of Sidon where the gunbattles took place. He has lately appeared along with several wanted militants from Jund al-Sham at the Iftar. Among the suspects are Haitham al-Shaabi who is wanted by several arrest warrants, the sources said. Last week, similar sources told An Nahar newspaper that Shaker has put his properties up for sale because he needed the money to escape Lebanon.

Yah. I don’t think any more needs to be said about the agenda Mr Salhani is pushing. 
But, wait!   Media Production? Media Production! 

*****Here is a thought….. Claude Salhani is connected to the video he is critiquing? Entirely possible! Perhaps Claude Salhani, who is in “Media Production” made the video and posted it online to justify his obvious and blatant propaganda piece. ******
Wouldn’t doubt it myself.

Claude Salhani, “Media Production”, whatever that entails, started writing for beginning Sept 29, 2011. (Interesting timing?) Claude must have felt it necessary to contradict a previous editorial at Iran-Iraq-Syria Pipeline Must Tempt Europe
A piece that contained this paragraph

We have stressed numerous times that this (pipeline) is one of the main reasons for the conflict in Syria. Right now there is a race on to get gas through this region, to Europe. This was Qatar’s main goal of meddling in Syria—and now Qatar has been largely sidelined having extended its reach a bit too far. (Qatar shares the Pars…

You may recall the last time we discussed this pipeline, not the only time, but the most recent time was in this post: War against Iran, Iraq and Syria? If you didn’t read that one.. now is the time.
While speaking of the previous post, linked directly above, and thinking aboout Iraq in particular, this rather odd statement from an Iraqi MP caught my eye

MP, Liqa Wardi, of the Iraqiya Slate ruled out “Repeating the Syrian or Egyptian scenario in Iraq.”

She stated to “The scenario in Iraq is different from the Syrian and the Egyptian,” noting that “We expect the international community to interfere to stop the violations against human rights.”

“Due to the tendency to increase the sectarian violence, the international community will interfere to stop the violence,” she concluded.

Who has she been talking with? And what does she mean when she suggests the international community will ‘interfere’ to stop the violence

Update on the Eid aid convoy. 

Which should have made it’s way to Syria by now? ..I will assume it made it through to Syria or at the very  least to the border area in Turkey. If you have not been paying attention I first covered the Eid aid convoy in this post. (You gotta get up to speed!) Problem, Reaction, Solution? AQ threat or Opportunity to advance war agenda?

I ended that post with this comment “I find this so called aid delivery highly suspicious”

One of the ultra well informed commenters that drops byhere added this comment along with other goodies you should check out
Thanks anonymous!!

maybe the aid convoy is smuggling weapons?
AND… this should sent chills to those who understand the history. Eid in Syria is sposored by IHH. You know, the guys smuggling weapons.

I am familiar with the IHH and it’s ‘humanitarianism‘. I have a way back post, which contained much info and  an extensive batch of comments on the scummy IHH and it’s connections to the Turkish government. It’s weapons smuggling and worse in Libya. Let me say it clearly and emphatically  there is nothing, not one drop of humanity in the humanitarianism of IHH

Moving along, this information should be the cherry on top of the scummy IHH sundae
Syria aid charity is being monitored by regulator

Monitored simply means we are turning a blind eye to what is really going one under the guise of ‘charity’
Pay attention to the individuals involved in this Eid aid.

“A spokeswoman for the regulator said it has an ongoing monitoring case into the London-based charity Aid Convoy “regarding trustees’ duties” and “the end use of charitable funds”.

One of the trustees of Aid Convoy, as listed on the commission’s website, is Moutaz Almallah Dabas. According to the Sunday Times, Dabas was arrested by British police in 2005 for alleged involvement in bombings in Madrid which killed 191 people in 2004. He was extradited to Spain in 2007 but was acquitted of the charges in 2011.

Emdadur Choudhury is also listed as a trustee of the charity. In 2011, Choudhury was found guilty of public order offences after burning poppies at a protest in west London on Armistice Day, according to the Sunday Times.

Usman Ali was also listed a trustee of Aid Convoy but resigned last month. The Sunday Times said that Ali was banned for life from a mosque in Woolwich, southeast London, after allegedly showing children footage of the 9/11 attacks and proclaiming “God is great”

You get the idea? This Eid aid is a NATO op. The aid is guns and worse.
Notice the regulator is simply‘monitoring’ despite all these very shady connections. Is that realistic? It seems to be the only thing being monitored is a safe delivery of the accoutrements of death and destruction 

 All these red flags and the  Eid Aid convoy left the UK
