UK Government urged to come clean on Pakistan executions funding

The Home Office is refusing to reveal the true extent of secret funding to Pakistan which risks implicating the UK in a wave of executions currently underway.

Human rights organization Reprieve has brought proceedings before the Information Rights Tribunal (IRT) challenging ministers’ refusal to reveal whether Government guidelines were followed when funneling at least £12 million into anti-drugs efforts in Pakistan, largely carried out by the Pakistani Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF). The ANF is responsible for sending more than a hundred alleged drug mules to Pakistan’s 8,500-strong death row, and lists these numbers on its website as ‘Prosecution Achievements.’ Several British citizens are understood to be among those facing execution on drugs charges.

Pakistan has executed some 180 people since resuming executions in December 2014, having widened its hanging campaign in early 2015 to cover all prisoners on the country’s death row – including drug offenders, others convicted of non-violent offences, juveniles, and mentally ill prisoners.

The UK’s Overseas Security and Justice Assistance (OSJA) guidance requires ministers to consider the potential risk to human rights of government overseas assistance. However, the Government is refusing to reveal crucial details of its decision-making about the funding, despite the recent resumption of hangings. The Home Office is arguing that publishing the information would both damage its relations with Pakistan, and reveal information which could “relate to” the British security services.

At the Government’s request large portions of the hearings so far have been heard in secret, without the presence of Reprieve, its lawyers, or a Government-appointed security-cleared lawyer known as a ‘Special Advocate’. Reprieve is currently seeking permission to appeal the judge’s decision to refuse the presence of a special advocate.

Commenting, Maya Foa, director of the death penalty team at Reprieve, said:

“The British public deserves to know how much of its money is funding hangings in Pakistan, particularly as the country continues its aggressive execution spree. If the UK is contributing to putting vulnerable drug mules – including British nationals – on death row in countries like Pakistan, this is a matter of huge public interest. The Home Office should stop hiding behind spurious national security arguments in an effort to dodge taxpayer scrutiny, and instead come clean about the true extent of its aid for executions”.

Turkey still backing ISIL, says top Iraqi commander

Image result for ERDOGAN CARTOON

The commander of the Iraqi volunteer forces fighting Saudi Zio-Wahhabi ISIL Takfiri group says there is no evidence that Turkey has altered its stance against the terrorist group and is still supporting the militants.

“Turkey has not changed its stance; it carried out operations against the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party), which is fighting with the Kurds against ISIL in Syria,” Hadi al-Ameri said on Monday.

Ameri made the remarks after a meeting between Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Iraqi counterpart Ibrahim al-Jaafari in the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

Turkey launched a military campaign against what it claims to be Saudi Zio-Wahhabi ISIL targets in Syria and PKK positions in northern Iraq last week, after an ISIL attack in the south western Turkish town of Suruç claimed the lives of at least 32 people on July 20.

“Turkey still supports ISIL right now,” said Ameri, adding “I think [the strikes] Turkey carried out were to support ISIL and not what some had imagined,” said Ameri.

Ankara blames the PKK for a string of attacks against its security forces in recent days and has vowed to continue fighting Saudi Zio-Wahhabi ISIL, which has taken over parts of land in Syria, Iraq and Libya.

Turkey’s pledge to confront Saudi Zio-Wahhabi ISIL Takfiris comes despite its longtime support for the militancy against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with reports showing that Ankara actively trains and arms the Takfiri extremists operating in Syria, and also facilitates the safe passage of foreign terrorists into the Arab country.

Iraq’s army has been joined by Kurdish forces, Shia volunteers and Sunni tribesmen in operations to drive the ISIL terrorists out of the areas the Takfiri militants have seized.

Jordan: Zionist puppet jails eight for plots against Zionist regime and US



Zionist puppet King handed down jail sentences Wednesday against seven of its citizens and a Syrian for planning attacks on US soldiers in the country and on the Israeli embassy, a judicial source said.

The plots in question would have involved “terrorist acts” against the US service personnel at a Zio-Hashimit military base in al-Moaqar in 2006 and against the NAZI embassy in Amman in 2008, the source said without elaborating.

The charges included “plotting to commit a terrorist act, and possession of weapons and explosives for use” in those acts.

The Jordanians were all arrested in May 2014, but no details were provided on their identities or the surrounding circumstances.

The leader of the group, a Jordanian, was given a 10-year term with hard labor, while his remaining compatriots were jailed for between two and three years under the same conditions.

The Syrian, who was tried in absentia, was sentenced to 15 years.

The defendants were also accused of collaborating with the Lebanese Hezbollah in 2011 and 2012 in a bid to ship arms from Jordan to the Palestinian territories.

Zionist puppet regime in Jordan amended its anti-terror law last year to make it an offence to “belong to or attempt to join any armed group or terrorist organization.”

Heartbreaking images reveal the human face of hunger in Yemen: SIX MILLION people are on the brink of starvation as war ravages the desperate country

  • C.I.A puppet Abd-Rabby Mansour Hadi fled Yemen in February 2012
  • Forces loyal to the exiled president have since been fighting Houthi rebels
  • Blockades on port are plunging the country’s population into a food crisis
  • 13million people are now hungry yet the sides refuse effective ceasefires 

These heartbreaking pictures reveal the true face of a civil war that has put six million people on the brink of starvation in Yemen.

Thousands have been killed in the battles between Houthi rebels and forces loyal to C.I.A puppet  an Abd-Rabby Mansour Hadi, who fled the troubled country in February 2012.

But Oxfam today warned of the pressure blockades on imports are putting on the population, forcing an additional 25,000 people into hunger every day.

Half of the country’s 26 million population are now struggling to eat, according to Oxfam, as the war in the country rages on. 

Oxfam’s Yemen country director Philippe Clerc said: ‘As the warring parties continue to ignore calls for a ceasefire, the average family in Yemen is left wondering when their next meal will be.’

Nearly 4,000 people have been killed and more than 1.2 million displaced in the conflict so far.

The United Nations say that four fifths of the population need help.

As well as the six million starving people, Oxfam believes 12.9 million are hungry.

That number has risen by 2.3 million since March, when Zio-Wahhabi led coalition backing C.I.A puppet Hadi began bombarding the Houthis and imposed a blockade to cut off arms supplies.

‘In a country that has historically faced food shortages, this is the highest ever recorded number of people living in hunger,’ Oxfam said in a statement.

It said the blockade had exacerbated the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, which imports up to 90 percent of its food and the majority of its fuel.

U.N. humanitarian coordinator for Yemen Johannes van der Klaauw said more than 6 million people were in an emergency food situation – the phase before famine on the internationally used food security scale.

He added: ‘The food situation in many governorates including Aden is very critical, but we’re not at the stage of famine.

‘In some governorates the level of criticality is such that the next level would be famine, but we’re not there and let’s hope we do not get there.’

Van der Klaauw, who visited Aden at the weekend, said the United Nations hoped to scale up aid to the port city now that fighting had moved north.

Some markets in the city are still functioning, he added.

The Arab coalition announced a five-day truce from late on Sunday to allow in emergency aid, but fighting has continued in some places.

Oxfam said Saada governorate in the north was the worst affected by food shortages, with nearly four in five people going hungry and half at a critical level.

In neighbouring Hajjah governorate families uprooted by the wars are having to sell livestock at well below market value to buy food, Oxfam said.

Some displaced families in Sanaa have resorted to begging.

The World Health Organization said on Tuesday that 3,984 people had died and 19,347 had been injured between March 19 and July 19, according to data from health facilities.

It also recorded an upsurge in cases of dengue fever in Yemen, with nearly 5,700 suspected cases reported since March, around half of them in Aden.

HAMA: And just when the rats thought they were in like Flynn in Hama, the Syrian Army began a massive counterattack. In the Ghaab Valley, Syria’s Bekaa, the SAA-SF laid down an ambush for a group of rodents belonging to both Nusra and Jaysh Al-Fath. The SAA killed:

Anas Qabalaan (a/k/a “Abu Jalmood Al-Maqdisi”. JORDANTEEZIAN LEADER OF A “DEEP IMMERSION” UNIT for Nusra)

Muhammad Ghubn (Leader in Jaysh Al-Fath)

Another 11 were counted dead. All foreigners.

The Syrian Army has begun opening supply routes to the government’s forces after losing some positions east of Jisr Al-Shughoor to the Jaysh Al-Fath which opened up with a ferocious artillery attack with mostly American-provided weapons. The purpose of the SAA action was to cleanse the area of Tal Waasit, Khirbat Al-Naaqoos, Al-Mansoora and Al-Ziyaara.

From there, the plan is known to include an assault on Furayka and all hills around it.

It has been announced that the SAA has routed the rodents at Al-Mansoora, Tal Waasit and Khirbat Al-Naaqoos in the area of Suqaylabiyya.

In the meantime, the SAAF has been harrying the rodents around Khirbat Al-Naqoos, Qastoon, Khattaab Hills, Himka, Al-Mintaar, Al-Mushayrifa, Al-A’war, all east of Jisr Al-Shughoor, to prevent the rats from establishing fortifications and revetments.

The SAA is continuing its assault on Tal Al-Dayr and Tal Bakri which are the main supply routes to the rats from the Al-Zaawiya Mountains.

SYRIAN PERSPECTIVE IS DELIGHTED TO REPORT THE DEATH OF THE AMERICAN RODENT: “ABU USAAMAA AL-AMREEKI” after some agents of the Syrian Intelligence service placed an inconvenient explosive device in his Volvo while he was traveling in Kafr Takhaareem in Idlib Province.

The Syrian Army has confirmed that all quarters of the city of Al-Hasaka have been mostly deloused.  It started with the Al-Nashwa Quarter with both residential and public buildings.  Once they were free of rodents, the SAA continued to the Criminal Security Branch Building, and then, to the Electric Roundabout, the Electric Company and the Water Preservation Reservoir.

At the point when the SAA reached the reservoir, the ISIS hyenas moved to the Cultural Center Building and Sports Arena where they were surrounded until Tuesday. Reports coming in today indicate the terrorists have been routed there.

South of the Ghuwayraan Quarter: The SAA is pursuing remnant rats in an area about 10 blocks in size.  The Al-Baasil Bakery has been secured as well as the Center for Production of Grains and areas surrounding it. The SAA has advanced to the Economics College and exterminated all rats inside.

One of the problems is that the local militias operating inside the city have been unwilling to take prisoners which deprives the SAA and security unit


On returning from Palestine

By Omar Robert Hamilton 

At the border it is always the same questions. Do you have another name? Do you have another passport? What is your father’s name? What is his father’s name? Have you ever been to Syria? Lebanon? Morocco? What are you doing here?

I used to feel sick for days before coming to Palestine. Would rehearse my answers, shut down my Twitter page, print off hotel reservations, eject SIM cards. I spent four years’ worth of interrogations claiming to be making a film about the restoration of a church in Nazareth. This time, I would think each time, they will Google me. This time, the Israelis will turn me away.

For eight years, we’ve been bringing people to the Palestine Festival of Literature. International authors, artists, publishers arrive in late spring, put on a festival in English and Arabic with their Palestinian counterparts, and leave having understood what decades of spin and lies and obfuscation have worked so hard to hide. They leave understanding how simple it is, what’s happening here.

For eight years, the visiting authors’ first experience of apartheid is at the border. White faces and Northern names cruise through with welcomes and visas, strange Southern names and un-white faces sit and wait and answer questions about their lineage, are led through interrogations probing for an inconsistency, a nervousness, a reason to turn you away. Every year, without exception. You can call it security if it makes you feel better, but I won’t.

Eight years I’ve been doing it, and it is always the same. So much has happened in the world, but the border stays the same. When they ask what I have come to do, I say words like “arts,” “culture” and “workshop” in a variety of floral combinations. Words that sound harmless to these men with guns.

Are they, in fact, harmless?

Maybe they are Googling me. Maybe they know the whole truth. I wish, sometimes, that they would turn me away.

They want to disappear Palestine. Keep people away. The old will die and the young will forget. And they think it is working, this disappearing of Palestine. There is no airport to fly to, no arrival stamp in your passport, no website with travel tips you can trust. Google Maps does not know the names of the streets in Ramallah or how to drive to Nablus, it will only direct you toward the settlement-cities and military prisons. Where is Palestine? How do you get there?

In this age of nation-states and easyjets, Israel works to fracture both the land and the idea. Palestine is the West Bank, Palestine is Area A, Palestine is not Gaza, Palestine never existed, Palestine is a confusion. You cannot understand it. You must forget it.

But it is the idea that is strongest. Palestine is every breath from the Galilee to the Naqab, Palestine is every child born in a refugee camp, Palestine is Ferguson, Baltimore, Tibet and Western Sahara. Is that a strength — being strongest in idea? Or is it the last breath before death?

The idea of the Apache, Inca, Arawak were strong once, too. Are strong today.

“Just go to Israel,” I could say, when people ask me how to get to Palestine. “Just go and talk to a Palestinian and you’ll be in Palestine.” But what would they see? If you drive north from Jerusalem to Haifa, you will see a rolling grassy hillock to your right. You would not know that the Wall runs underneath it. You would not know what it looks like from the other side.

Israel is a colonist’s exercise in landscaping on a national, messianic scale. And so the landscape has to be translated for the visitor. This, I would tell you, is a road that only settlers can drive on, these are rooftops from which Palestinian flags are banned, this is an olive grove burned by settlers, this is a well that has been filled with cement, this is my friend who cannot come with us for dinner in Jerusalem and these trees hide the ruins of a village taken in 1948, and there, on that hill, is an apricot farm and there, on the other side of the Wall, is where the farmer lives.

Driving through the West Bank I look up at the settlements, small cities coiled around the top of the hills, watching, waiting. Palestine is the topography of war, the exodus of people up the mountain, the valley a tank can’t cross, the coastal plain to flood people down. The land is defined by war and Israel shapes the land for the war to come. The settlements wait for the signal from their higher ground.

The watchful visitor will soon understand that every inch of the land is monitored, controlled, prepared for. Every dimension of life is mapped and manipulated. Air, water, electricity, money, food, movement, education, ideas, love — none are free. The occupation of both the present and the past is a complex operation.

But it is more complex to hide a simple truth: that one people are trying to wipe out another.

That, in the end, is all there is to it.

When you cross Qalandia checkpoint, all becomes clear. The first time for me was in 2008. I was stunned by its brutality, the explicitly dystopian design, the razor wire and metal runnels and video cameras. By the inescapability of it. Four tight metal corridors offer themselves to you, each leading to a revolving steel gate. The metal is close, pushes up to your shoulders. Two people cannot fit in this animal run. There’s no way back, no way sideways, no way to talk, just wait your turn, wait to see what lies beyond that steel gate. There is only you in the metal corral and your own existence between the bars that strip you of pride or philosophy and leave you only as a body, a body facing forward and being herded in toward a reckoning.

In an abattoir they don’t let the cows see what’s waiting for them. They don’t want to scare them. It’s bad for the meat. Not here. Here your humiliation is laid bare. You must all stand and watch each other, grow weaker through each other’s weakness. The metal gate at the end stays locked. You wait together for permission to move, for the green light to buzz, to step forward into the deeper bowels of this slaughterhouse of dignity.

I cried the first time I got through. I came out into the sunlight and broke into tears.

Qalandia hasn’t changed in eight years. But other things have. Gaza, BDS, Netanyahu, Obama. Years of Palestinian deaths and Israeli words and American excuses. Enough has changed to fill a book with words. And yet nothing has. One people are still trying to drive another out of existence.

UN spurns Palestinian children



Gaza, Occupied Palestine – Ban Ki-moon’s decision not to include Israel on the list of violators of children’s rights twists the knife in the heart of every Palestinian parent, making it very clear that in the eyes of the United Nations, Palestinian children’s lives don’t count.

When a military with the most sophisticated and accurate weaponry on the planet can kill more than 500 children in cold blood with complete impunity, as Israel’s absence from the list shows, it reveals more than just the complete disregard for Palestinian lives that has become so commonplace in the halls of power. It also makes it abundantly clear that the UN, the single most important international organisation charged with protecting the lives of the most vulnerable, is failing spectacularly.

Children are the lifeblood of the future. How can any world citizen look at the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Palestinian child death toll from the 2014 Israeli aggression, and this decision, and not be appalled?

At best it reflects the paucity of  responsible leadership evident in the UN under Ban Ki-moon’s secretaryship, which has seen public faith in the international organisation reach an all-time low.

At worst it underlines the gross politicisation of an organisation purporting to uphold the rights of ALL humans – and failing.
The only way Ban Ki-moon’s decision – if not his entire leadership in relation to the Palestinian issue – can be called a success is if the intention is to ‘grow’ a generation of increasingly angry cynics with no respect for the abject hypocrisy emanating from Geneva and New York.

Hemaya expresses its utmost disappointment in the attitude to Palestinian children that the decision represents, and calls on human rights bodies and concerned citizens everywhere to roundly reject it by supporting and valuing those Palestinian children who survived, and who continue to suffer under illegal occupation, repression and siege.

Zio-Wahhabi (ISIS) savages are playing soccer with severed heads


Zio-Wahhabi ISIS terrorists were seen playing football with a severed head as the militants have reported seized the Palestinian Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus. According to the Palestinian eyewitnesses who fled the horrors of the Zio-Wahhabi terrorist group, they saw heads cut off and children killed in front of their parents.

ISIS ‘playing football with severed head': witness + Video

Ibrahim Abdel Fatah, a 55-year-old refugee, told “We had heard of their cruelty from the television, but when we saw it ourselves… I can tell you, their reputation is well-deserved.” Another teenager Palestinian refugee, Amjad Yaaqub, said he saw ISIS members “playing with a severed head as if it was a football”.

Below are two of the Palestinian heads cut off by Zio-Wahhabi ISIS last week:


Yaaqub added “Daesh came to my home looking for my brother who’s in the Palestinian Popular Committees. They beat me until I passed out and left me for dead.” It is estimated that 400 families including around 2,000 people fled the camp to Yalda, a neighbouring area which is under control of Syrian army, and 150 others escaped to Palestinian fighter controlled areas.

This past thursday Zio-Wahhabi ISIS terrorists entered the camp from the nearby Hajar Aswad neighborhood in southern Damascus in a coordinated attack with their rivals in the Al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front.

Below is an Iraqi police officer beheaded by Zio-Wahhabi ISIS. They refer to the severed head as “our World Cup soccer ball, it is made of skin.”

Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar is dead, Afghan officials and a person close to the terrorist group reportedly say.

Abdul Hassib Seddiqi, the spokesman for the National Directorate of Security, Afghanistan’s main intelligence agency, confirmed the Taliban leader’s death to The Associated Press (AP), saying he died in a hospital in Karachi, Pakistan back in April 2013.

“His death raises questions about who will lead the movement that allied with al Qaeda, fought a war with the U.S. and is now divided over whether to pursue an elusive peace deal with Afghanistan’s new government,” reports The Wall Street Journal from the Afghan capital, Kabul.

“A spokesman for the Taliban couldn’t immediately be reached for comment Wednesday, and it remains unclear when and how Mullah Omar died,” it continues. “An Afghan official briefed on the matter said the Pakistani government informed Kabul he had died two years ago.”

The Taliban leader has eluded the public eye since the early months of the 14-year Afghanistan war, fueling speculation that he had died — claims that the Taliban has repeatedly refuted.

Sayed Zafar Hashemi, a spokesman for Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, said on Wednesday that authorities were trying to verify the claim that Mullah Omar is dead,BBC reports.

“We are aware of the reports of the passing away of Mullah Omar, the Taliban leader,”reportedly said the spokesman at a hastily called news conference Wednesday in Kabul. “We are still in the process of checking those reports, and as soon as we get confirmation or verification, we will inform the Afghan people and the media.”

“The Taliban could not be immediately reached on the government’s comments about Omar, who has been declared dead many times before,” notes AP.

A Pakistani security official told AP on condition of anonymity that the rumors of the Taliban leader’s death are “speculation” designed to disrupt peace talks between the terrorist group and the Afghan government.

“Whether he is dead or alive is important because he is the collective figure for the Taliban,” an anonymous Western diplomat with connections to the Taliban leadership told AP. ”If he is dead, it would be much more difficult to get negotiations with the Taliban because there would be no collective figure to rally around and take collective responsibility for entering peace talks.”

News of Mullah Omar’s death comes at a difficult time for the Taliban, which is deeply divided over whether to engage in peace negotiations with the Afghan government with the goal of ending the 14-year Afghanistan war.

The confirmation comes two days before the two parties are expected to hold their second round of official peace talks in Pakistan.

BBC’s former Kabul correspondent, David Loyn, reportedly pointed out that “the failure to prove that Mullah Omar was alive was a major factor behind the defection of several senior Taliban commanders to the so-called Islamic State [ISIS/ISIL] group.”

The sixth edition of ISIS’ English-language propaganda magazine Dabiq, issued late last year, circulated claims that Mullah Omar was dead.

A foot note in the magazine mentioned that some senior commanders in Afghanistan doubted that Mullah Omar was still alive, adding that they “are convinced that he was either killed or imprisoned, as none of them has seen him since the start of the modern crusader campaign against Afghanistan.”

“They also quoted [Mullah Omar’s] son as saying that he had not seen him for 12 years,” added the foot note.

In the latest edition of Dabiq, ISIS “presented as a fatwa, a legal ruling issued by an Islamic authority, the article juxtaposes Omar to [ISIS] leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, claiming the latter is the only rightful claimant to the crown of leader of all Muslims,” notes International Business Times (IBT).
