الجيش السوري يستعيد آبار نفط وغاز في ريف تدمر من المسلحين

Using new techniques and weapons, the Syrian Army appears unstoppable.  While I write this post, I have been told that units of the SAA are on their way to liberate Al-Raqqa.  I have written about this before, months ago, in fact, when a whole mechanized armored division was on its way to Al-Raqqa for the final battle only to be delayed and then diverted back to Aleppo to handle some Nusra campaign designed to keep the ISIS infestation in the spent and hapless eastern city.  With newly inaugurated units and militias now reaching 200,000 men and women, we have the manpower to accomplish all this.

Al-Salmaaniyya:  A unit of the SAA fought a battle with Nusra rodents and killed 3 while taking 8 prisoners.  The rats are becoming increasingly sloppy as most of their leaders either die, get captured or move to Australia.  The remant yokels are hardly capable of fighting a professional army like Syria’s.

Abu Al-Dhuhoor near the airbase:  There are a few hundred rodents left here and their numbers are quickly dropping due to defections and territorial disputes.  The siege of the base is over.  Now, the SAA is on the offensive.  Yesterday, a pack of rodents was annihilated as it carried a mother lode of weapons westward in a convoy of vans.  The area is still being assessed as I write.

East Sarja:  A nest of Al-Qaeda vultures was invaded by SAA and PDC (formerly NDF) and 10 of the terrorists were killed:

Yunus Mahmoud Sirhaan

Jalaal Zaki Muhammad

Hammood Shukri Al-Saafi

The other 7 were foreigners, 3 from Uzbekistan and 4 others from Chechnya.

Ma’arrat-Masreen:  This town has gone from one side to the other for the last 2 years.  The people want to be rid of American machinations and the scourge of Zionist-inspired Jihadism.  Yesterday, they came closer to riddance from the prehistoric savages belonging to Nusra when the SAA pushed into an area where the rats had stored ammunition underground and killed 23.  No names available.

Al-Raami in the Areehaa area:  A studied and perfectly executed attack on Nusra resulted in 4 rats taking the dumb waiter down to Mephisto’s Massage Parlor.  No names.

More fighting reported here:  Tal Salmu, Talab, ‘Ayn Al-Baarida, Al-Jaanoodiyya in the Jisr Al-Shughoor area.


Zionist lobby attack on academic freedom in USA

Silencing dissent

By Lawrence Davidson

Of late there has been news about attacks on academic freedom. Much of this is the result of aggressive efforts of Zionist organisations and individuals to silence those academics they see as enemies of Israel.

Salaita and the Amcha witch hunt

The latest example of this is the successful pressure brought to bear, apparently by a Zionist donor, on the chancellor of the University of Illinois to rescind a job offer for Professor Steven Salaita. This was done because this influential donor, noting Salaita’s anti-Israel tweets, decided he was anti-Semitic. The chancellor was apparently convinced that hiring Salaita would cost the university a lot of support – a pretty clear example of donor blackmail.

The Salaita case is not the only recent attempt to intimidate academics critical of Israel. An organisation calling itself Amcha (“your people” in Hebrew) and purporting to work for the “protection of Jewish students” has posted a list of over 200 lecturers who support the boycott of Israel. They too have been judged anti-Semitic and Jewish students are urged by the organisation to avoid their classes.

These attacks are tied to a longstanding and growing movement in American higher education to confront Israeli persecution of Palestinians particularly as regards the occupied territories – to point out the barbaric nature of the Israeli/Zionist state, not because it is Jewish, but because it is deeply racist. However, because the leaders and many of the supporters of Israel are Jewish, they confuse the issue and claim a stance against Israel must be one against Jews per se and that is anti-Semitism. It is a claim that makes little sense if only due to the fact that many of those opposing Israeli actions, both within and without of academia, are Jewish.

Recent past

This attack on academics who see things differently than the Zionists is not new. Back in 2007 David Horowitz organised teach-ins on campuses across the nation during which lecturers critical of Israel were accused of purposely withholding information about the threat of “Islamo-fascism”. Horowitz also asserted that many of these same “left-wing” lecturers had taken over the country’s universities and were systematically harassing conservative students. Through his influence, 17 state legislatures ordered investigations of these charges. Later he would publish a book entitled The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America. All were critics of Israel. This set the precedent for the recent listing put forth by Amcha.

Horowitz was acting in coordination with Daniel Pipes. In 2002 Pipes founded Campus Watch, a website on which he posted the names of academics, mostly in the field of Middle East studies, whom he accused of being “apologists for suicide bombing and militant Islam”. Pipes encouraged students who supported Israel to “hover over the shoulders” of such professors and let them know they were being monitored.

There are many other examples of attacks on academic freedom, and as a consequence Professor Salaita’s career is by no means the only one to be harmed by this sort activity. Dozens of faculty at all levels of higher education have suffered threats, harassment, discipline and/or termination.These range from well-known figures such as Edward Said at Columbia University and Juan Cole in his dealings with Yale University, to perhaps less-known, but still important teachers and scholars such as Terri Ginsberg at North Carolina State University and the horribly persecuted Sami al-Arian at the University of South Florida.

Larger historical context

And then there is the larger historical context for all this. In terms of US history, the suppression of free speech, academic or otherwise, can be traced back to 1778 and the Alien and Sedition Acts. Among other episodes, suppression reappeared in the 1830s under Andrew Jackson and during the Civil War under Lincoln. Woodrow Wilson used the Espionage Act to jail vocal opponents of World War I beginning in 1917, and this was followed by the first Red Scare in the early 1920s. McCarthyism appeared in 1950s. The intimidating finger-pointing of Islamophobia appeared even before the tragedies of 2001.

What does all this history, stretching from the very beginning of the nation until the present day, tell us? It demonstrates that the effort to control dissenting speech has always been present and probably always will be. There are a number of factors that support this sober  conclusion:

First, there is the fact that most people have short historical memories. On average, the United States experiences significant attacks on dissenters and their right to free speech once every 30 to 40 years. This suggests that most citizens have forgotten the essentially barbaric nature and consequences of the previous episode and how, in the end, the claims and charges that ruined so many lives turned out to be false or greatly exaggerated.

Second, there is the difficulty of thinking critically about events of which we have little knowledge. When confronted with such a situation, most citizens rely on the government and its allied media to provide them with supposedly accurate information. These sources may well slant stories in a certain way so as to produce public support for specific policies.

The consequences of such distortions are particularly noticeable when it comes to foreign events. Thus, the effectiveness of the ongoing attack on academic freedom, and specifically the freedom of those who are critical of Israel and US policies in the Middle East, is directly related to the ignorance of most Americans about the persecution of Palestinians and the Muslim world’s perception of US behaviour.

Third, there is the majority’s ignorance of or indifference to the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights is the result of a strong demand that the original US constitution be amended so that it enumerates the basic rights – including freedom of speech – of citizens, residents and visitors on American soil. However, who is it that usually exercises their rights in ways that might need such protection? It is not the mainstream majority, but rather a vocal minority usually disapproved of by the mainstream.This disregard of the importance of the Bill of Rights is all the more dangerous because those who seek to suppress free expression almost always claim to be acting in defence of the majority. Such is the power of this claim that often the courts, the job of which entails the enforcement of the Bill of Rights, end up sanctioning their violation.


It is clear that there is a recurring pattern to the assaults on free speech. Perhaps the pattern has its roots in a community’s natural preference for group solidarity. Whatever the origins, the pattern of periodic negative reactions is so well established that we can justifiably conclude it is not going to go away. We are historically stuck with it.

The only way to minimise the consequences of these repeated assaults is to continuously defy them. In other words, only by maintaining a counter-pattern of vigorously defending and using the right of free speech and academic freedom can space be sustained for critical voices. If at any time we fail to sustain this space we risk the possibility of being overwhelmed by a combination of closed-minded ideologues and the mass indifference of the majority.

Nazi Mofaz: To appeal ‘human shield’ ruling


Nazi Mofaz
High Court rules that ‘human shield’ and ‘early warning’ procedures used by IDF to apprehend terrorists are illegal; Mofaz intends to use democratic means to review the issueHanan Greenberg

Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz on Tuesday demanded that the High Court review a ruling it issued last Thursday in which it declared that the ‘human shield’ procedure employed by the IDF when detaining Palestinian terror suspects is illegal and violates international law.

Sources at the Ministry of Defense said that Mofaz’ comments are not an attempt to subvert the Court’s decision, adding that the defense minister intends to use democratic means to revoke the ruling.

According to defense officials, the Israel Defense Forces made use of the ‘human shield’ procedure on 1,200 occasions over the last five years, and only on one occasion did a Palestinian civilian get hurt.

An 18-year-old Palestinian was killed in 2002 during one such operation.

Mofaz instructed the IDF to freeze the use of the ‘human shield’ and ‘early warning’ procedures in its arrest operations in the territorieS

until the Court holds a new hearing on the issue.Chief Military Prosecutor Avichai Mandelblit held talks on Tuesday with Central Command officers who told him that in overnight raids during which 20 Palestinian fugitives were arrested, IDF soldiers made no use of the ‘human shield’ or the ‘early warning’ procedures, in compliance with instructions issued by the IDF Chief of Staff Dan Halutz.

A senior official in the military prosecution told Ynet that the defense minister instructed the IDF to shelve the procedure in accordance with the High Court’s ruling and forbade its usage even in exceptional circumstances.

“The ruling necessitates new operational procedures, such as public announcements, yet the IDF is subordinate to the political and legal echelon; following the High Court’s ruling it was decided to freeze this procedure and that’s what has been done,” the official said.

Chief of Staff: Obey High Court

IDF Chief of Staff Dan Halutz was swift to instruict IDF commanders to immediately enforce the High Court’s ruling which forbids the use of Palestinian civilians to assist security operations in the Palestinian territories.

“The IDF now expects soldiers, and anyone else, who know of a breach of the rules, to report them to commanders,” wrote Major General Halutz. “Every incident will be investigated and treated severely,” he added.

Halutz’s orders were given out despite the IDF’s claim that the army has already ceased using Palestinian civilians to aid them for a long period. Despite this, the Chief of Staff sent out new instructions in light of the High Court’s ruling.

Halutz’s new guidelines are primarily aimed at the ‘early warning’ practice’ which has developed in the army recently, after a ban on the use of the human shield’ procedure.

Under the ‘early warning procedure,’ residents who reside close the home of a wanted Palestinian can “volunteer for missions” under the request of soldiers. The High Court condemned this type of practice, and the Chief of Staff has said that soldiers could not use such tactics in the future.

China, North Korea criticize US over Ferguson situation


A North Korean soldier watches fellow soldiers enter in Panmungak building at the Joint Security Area, North Korea, July 27, 2013.

YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — North Korea and China criticized the United States’ human rights record after a grand jury decided not to press charges against a police officer who fatally shot an unarmed 18-year-old in Ferguson, Mo.

While China veiled its criticism Tuesday, North Korea, which is believed to run a vast network of concentration camps housing political prisoners, called the U.S. a “graveyard of human rights.”

A post on North Korea’s official news website called the U.S. a country “wantonly violating the human rights where people are subject to discrimination and humiliation due to their races and they are seized with such horror that they do not know when they are shot to death.”

China Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying initially declined to comment on the U.S. “internal matter” during a regular news conference in Beijing, then commented anyway.

“However, the incident you brought up is a case in point showing that when it comes to human rights record, there is no such a thing as perfection,” Hua told a reporter, according to an official transcript. “On human rights issues, all countries should engage in dialogue, communication and cooperation, and learn from each other to improve human rights record altogether, rather than pointing fingers at each other.”

Both North Korea and China have been severely criticized by human rights organizations and countries all over the world.

The 2013 State Department report on human rights in China cited executions without a judicial process; enforced disappearances; torture and detention of journalists, lawyers, bloggers and political dissidents; discrimination against women and minorities, and a host of other allegations.

This week, Chinese police began spraying a liquid equivalent of tear gas on pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, according to several media and social media reports.

Last year, the United Nations Human Rights Council unanimously established a commission to determine whether North Korean human rights abuses constituted “crimes against humanity.”

U.S. and South Korean officials estimate North Korea keeps 80,000 to 120,000 people in forced labor camps for political prisoners, including children and the elderly, according to Human Rights Watch.

Freedom of movement, speech and assembly are all controlled by the government. The practice of religion is a crime, as is attempting to leave the country without official permission.

Last week, North Korea threatened nuclear tests in response to the U.N. human rights probe.

The U.S. military in recent years has prioritized upgrading its ballistic missile defense measures in the Asia-Pacific, citing North Korean work on its nuclear program.

China has also dramatically modernized its missile program in recent years to include the DF-21D, a missile designed to strike a moving aircraft carrier.

China won’t save North Korea if country goes to war, says former PLA general



China will not step in to save neighbouring North Korea if the Pyongyang regime collapses or starts a war, a retired People’s Liberation Army general has said, possibly signalling Beijing’s waning patience with its wayward, nuclear-armed ally.

“China is not a saviour,” Wang Hongguang, former deputy commander of the Nanjing military region, wrote in the Global Times newspaper, which is close to the Communist Party.

China cannot influence the situation on the Korean peninsula … It is not necessary for China’s younger generation to fight a war for another country

“Should North Korea really collapse, not even China can save it,” he said in a contribution to the nationalist tabloid’s Chinese-language website, which was published on Monday.

The outspoken Wang has made critical comments about North Korea before and it was not clear if his words indicated a policy shift regarding Pyongyang.

China has long been the isolated North’s key ally and aid provider. Beijing came to Pyongyang’s aid in the 1950-53 Korean War, when its intervention against United States-led UN forces defending South Korea helped seal a stalemate that has lasted to this day.

China’s role has grown as the North’s economy has shrunk in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union – with which Pyongyang had close trade and aid ties – more than 20 years ago.

In the two decades since, Beijing has moved to develop diplomatic relations and booming trade ties with Seoul, Pyongyang’s bitter rival. President Xi Jinping and South Korean President Park Geun-hye have exchanged visits, while Xi and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un have so far kept their distance.

Wang said China would not get involved in any new war on the Korean peninsula.

“China cannot influence the situation on the Korean peninsula … China has no need to light a fire and get burnt. Whoever provokes a conflagration bears responsibility,” he wrote. “Now there is no more ’socialist camp’. It is not necessary for China’s younger generation to fight a war for another country.”

Wang criticised the North for its nuclear development, using it as an example of how the country’s interests can differ from China’s and saying it had “already brought about the serious threat of nuclear contamination in China’s border area”.

But he also slammed Western countries for “demonising” North Korea and interfering in its internal affairs in the name of human rights. “China absolutely does not meddle,” he wrote.

Beijing will “support what should be supported and oppose what should be opposed” regarding the North, Wang said, indicating that China was not ready to completely give up on its troublesome neighbour.

China will neither “court” nor “abandon” North Korea, he wrote. “This should be China’s basic attitude.”

‘Anadaan:  The SAA is finally free to concentrate on this key suburb and established based for Nusra, Al-Jabha Al-Islamiyya and Ahraar Al-Shaam. Their days are numbered here as the hands of a pincer moving from West Huraytaan and North Kafr Hamraa has interfaced with the hundreds (if not thousands) of rodents infesting this area.  This is the moment we have been waiting for. As we promised, when Anadaan falls, all Aleppo returns to the legitimate, central government of the Syrian Arab Republic and its citizens.  Yesterday, our army killed these in ‘Anadaan:

Nabhaan Sattoof (Leader of Al-Jabha Al-Islamiyya)

‘Aadil ‘Abdul-Rahmaan Al-Hilaal

Muhammad Zarzoor

Muhsin Al-Naayif

‘Abdul-Khaaliq Muhyiddeen

Bassaam Al-Hussayn

Ayman ‘Abdul-Salaam

Fawwaaz Baydilli

Kamaal ‘Ali Al-Sawwaaf

Ahmad Ghajar

Yaaseen Ghajar

Another 8 could not be identified and are believed to be Turks and Chechens.

Nibbul and Zahraa area:  The SAA clashed with the usual repugnant specimens of Rodenta and killed these:

‘Abdul-Salaam Al-Salmu

Ghaazi Murtadhaa

‘Alaa` Al-Yaaseen

“Abu Hammood Habbaash (id pending)

Muhammad Fattooh

“Abu Al-Zubayr Ghazzaal (id pending)

“Abu Al-Waleed Al-Suwayd” (id pending)


‘Abdul-Jabbaar ‘Atiyya

‘Adnaan Al-Zamr (Nusra leader. He’s blowing his pipes now in Hell)

Another 5 could not be identified – even by the 12 prisoners taken.

Maayer:  A warehouse filled with Turkish delights was invaded and its inventory distributed to the Popular Defense Committees (PDC):

Mahmoud ‘Aleesha

‘Abdul-Qaadir Qassaam

Another 4 were not named.

Ma’rasat Al-Khaan:  A warehouse used to supply rodents besieging Nibbul and Al-Zahraa` was destroyed and 14 rodents killed in the firefight.  I have no names.

Khaan Toomaan:  An area rich in grain storage facilities which was robbed for the last 2 years, its granaries pillaged by ravenous Erdoghani rats, was attacked full-throttle yesterday by the SAA and 23 rats killed in the process. I have not been sent any names.

Al-Shaykh Lutfi:  A van surreptitiously carrying plague-infested rodents was stopped and destroyed by SAA.  Wael reports that 5 vermin were killed after they refused to surrender.  All were Chechens and Georgians.

Fighting reported intense in all these areas:  Al-Nayrab, Bayaanoon, Al-‘Aamiriyya, South Hayyaan, Handaraat, Al-Shuqayf, Aghyoor Roundabout, Bani Zayd, Al-Sha’aar, Al-Ashrafiyya, Bustaan Al-Qasr.






Heroes of our Syrian Army stare down at ‘Alloosh’s nimrods who couldn’t avoid an ambush even in a dense fog.

Doumaa:  Under a thick, pea-soup-like fog at early dawn in Doumaa, a pack of 6 rodents belonging to ‘Alloosh’s notoriously inept Jaysh Al-Islam attempted to surprise soldiers manning a checkpoint in Al’Aaliya Farms.  Unfortunately for the very unfortunate rodents, their illustrious leader has a serious problem with his cellphone; he can’t stop using it.

He actually was heard describing the operation to a person believed to be a Saudi in Jordan.  He promised “results”.  MI immediately informed Damascus Central Command which alerted the soldiers on the scene at the checkpoint and instructed them in how to set an ambush given the exact number of rats involved.  A sergeant at the post ordered his soldiers to fan out in a semi-circle and waited for the blurred shapes of the rodents to appear inside the very dense fog.  When they were determined to have crossed a fail-safe line, he opened fire with his AK47 along with the other 14 soldiers and wiped out the whole pack killing 5 (see photo above) and taking one wounded warbler. The names will be revealed in due course. Good show, Syrian Army!






Doumaa: Cringing in his suped up spider hole somewhere in ‘Aaliya Farms, Zahraan ‘Alloosh or “Commander Withdrawal”, as he is known unaffectionately by his fellow rats,  must be thinking about the afterlife.  There is a unit of the Military Intelligence Directorate which is tasked with both pursuing him and putting a bullet neatly in his head.  Why, yesterday, in Hawsh Al-Dhawaahira, just east of Doumaa, the SAA plowed through a pack of his rodents killing these:

Zuhayr Al-Biqaa’iy

Shaadi Al-Urfali

Jamaal Al-Bakkaar

Mahmoud Qattaan


Waseem Al-‘Adhmada 

Another 2 could not be identified.

Doumaa:  At ‘Alloosh’s Al-‘Aaliya and Al-‘Ibb Farms, the SAA and SAAF killed a total of 26 Jaysh Al-Islam (yawn) rats.  They have not sent me any names.  All Syrians, apparently.

AND LAST, BUT, NOT LEAST.  It appears that another rat gang killed off one of ‘Alloosh’s lieutenants.  Thanks to our reader, Dany the Fatso, we have learned of this rat’s departure in Doumaa:

‘Alloosh rat commander, Yousif ‘Abdul-Wahhaab (a/k/a “Abu Saalih), was assassinated by a rival group, probably Tawheed, in Al-Rayhaan, near Doumaa.  (Thanks, Dany)

Misraabaa:  At the entryway near the Hamza bin ‘Abdul-Muttalib Mosque southeast of Harastaa, these vultures were turned into carrion themselves by the SAA:



‘Umar-Zaada (AFGHAN WORM MERCHANT AND FRUIT FLY BREEDER. Identified by prisoner.)

Shaakir Al-‘Aatib

Muhammad Rabee’ Abu-Raashid

Another 3 could not be identified.

Harastaa:  5 rats confirmed killed southeast of the Reservation Center.  Another rat was killed east of the Shammoot Company.  He was caught trying to steal apricot paste (Qamardeen). 

Irbeen:  A whole bunch of rabid skunks belonging to Nusra went to their favorite sewer in Hell yesterday courtesy of the SAA and PDC:

Mahmoud Ka’roos (rodent leader)


Wafeeq Muhammad

Muhammad Badreddeen

‘Ali Nawfal

Khaan Al-Shaykh:  An attempt to infiltrate out of this area from the Four Seasons toward the Al-Salaam Highway was a total disaster for the Nusra rats.  I have no names.
