2 Nazi officer and a second soldier were wounded Tuesday night in a double bomb attack at the Hizma Nazi checkpoint.

The first IED (improvised explosive device) was detonated as the Nazi officer was searching a suspicious package planted on the road at the entrance to the checkpoint. A second bomb detonated shortly after the first.

Two pipe bombs were discovered attached to a gas cannister shortly after that initial double bombing attack, according to local sources.

Nazi army then discovered five more additional bombs as well, including that which was tied up with the gas cannister. The bomb squad carefully worked on dismantling all five bombs at the site.

The 2 Nazi officer, meanwhile, was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center with serious upper body wounds.

A second Nazi soldier was in stable condition after sustaining shrapnel wounds in the leg. He too was treated at the scene before he was evacuated for further treatment.

The Hizma Nazi checkpoint is located in the northern illegally occupied Jerusalem.

Nazi’s smashed your camera…again!

NOVANEWS
You are probably beyond being shocked that Nazi forces have smashed one of the four cameras that you supplied last December to Human Rights Defenders in Hebron.  We don’t know if it’s the same one that HRD volunteer Imad abu Shamsiyeh used to film the murder of Abdel Fattah al-Sharif by Nazi soldier Elor Azarya. Part of the incident at which the camera was smashed was filmed here (but not the smashing of the camera). The HRD report is at the end of this message.
HRD has appealed for more cameras and other equipment, and ISM-NorCal has agreed to provide it, including 10 good amateur quality cameras for the growing number of adult HRD volunteers, 15 lesser quality for the older children, two more laptop computers, one LCD projector, and related equipment (such as memory sticks).  The total cost is estimated at $4500, including shipping, but we have a $2000 matching grant, so the remainder that we need to raise from you is $2500.  Here is the information about where to make your donation by check or electronically:
We are also looking for lots of volunteers traveling from the US to Palestine, who are willing to take individual items of the equipment.  If you or anyone you know is traveling there, please contact us directly at solidarity@ism-norcal.org or 510-236-4250.
Thank you for your generosity and your help.
Human Rights Defenders Incident Report
The activist Badee Dweek ,who is the spokesman of the Human Rights Defenders Assembly , said that a group of settlers assaulted the the assembly coordinator Imad Abu Shamsyee and the  activist Yasser Abu Markhia while they were  documenting a group of settlers who were abusing the residents of Tel Rumeida area.
The assembly coordinator Abu Shamsyee said  that settlers were carrying sticks to attack the  region population , especially  the children, so as  to terrorize and intimidate them and he finished  by saying that he heard the sounds of screams in the beginning , so he went into the street  with video cameras and the activist Yasser joined him with a camera again for the coverage, and all these assaults  were in front of the Israeli occupation soldiers.
Afterward, a group of Nazi Jewish settlers went toward  the activist Yasser Abu Markhia and pushed him which wounded  him , then hit him with their hands.
Dweik said that  one of the strikes broke the camera  , which  disabled  the camera completely  and become unusable , so Imed was given another camera , and the broken one stayed with the assembly ,
Dweek also said that the Nazi Jewish settlers and the occupation soldiers became more  targeting activists of assembly and their cameras after their success in documenting many of the crimes, especially the recent crime in which  the martyr Abdel Fattah al-Sharif was killed in cold blood  in addition to the martyr Ramzi Qasrawi, besides the activist Badie Dweik called on international human rights organizations in the world to provide protection to activists gathering since their lives became at risk of serious threats  because of the Nazi settlers.
Note that The Human Rights defenders  is a Palestinian  , national non-partisan  assembly and working on   supporting unarmed popular resistance by means of popular actions which are  available,  in addition to the documenting  and following-up of violations committed by the occupation forces against the Palestinian people.

Aleppo Doctor Attacks Western Media for Bias, Censorship and Lies

NOVANEWS

By Silvia Cattori

Dr Nabil Antaki could have abandoned Aleppo to ensure his own safety. Instead he decided to remain and to serve the besieged people of his City, working with various local charities.  Above all, he wanted to bear witness to the destruction caused by Western support for the foreign armed groups who have been systematically destroying Syria and terrorising its people for the last 5 years.

Yesterday Silvia Cattori recorded this report from Dr Antaki on the recent amplification of propaganda surrounding events in Aleppo.  It has been translated from the French by Vanessa Beeley.

“With regards to recent events in Aleppo, I state very clearly that the mainstream media are lying by omission. Since the beginning of the war in Aleppo that began 4 years ago, they have consistently failed to report all the facts.

All of us here in Aleppo are disgusted by their lack of impartiality and objectivity. They only ever talk about the loss of life in the east of Aleppo which is entirely controlled by Al Nusra, a terrorist group affiliated with Al Qaeda. These are their “moderate rebels” a title that affords them an unmerited degree of respectability.

This same media remains silent on the daily losses and suffering endured in the Western areas of Aleppo living under the rain of mortar fire from these terrorist factions.  This media never mentions the terrorist blockade upon our people or the electricity cuts and water shortages inflicted upon us by their “moderate rebels”

Read more on Aleppo’s terrorist blockade, water shortages and starvation here: Syria, from the Sublime to the Shameful.

This media never mention the continuous bombardment and the carnage we have witnessed in western Aleppo where every single sector has been targeted. On a daily basis we see dozens of people murdered.

What makes these omissions even more despicable is that these areas represent 75% of Aleppo and there are 1.5 million people living in them. Compare this to the 300,000 living in the eastern zone which is occupied by terrorist groups.

This twisted narrative engenders the belief that these terrorist groups that are attacking us are actually the victims. Even more abhorrent, these media have distorted our “Save Aleppo” appeal, to make it look as if we are calling for Assad and the Syrian Army to cease hostilities!

This is FALSE. Added to which, they are not “Assad’s forces“, they are the national forces of the regular Syrian army that is defending the Syrian State.

The western and gulf media could at least have had the decency to mention the terrorist massacres of our people. For example, on Friday 30th April, when one of their mortars targeted a mosque at prayer time.

The attacks and losses we suffer are reported in a way that leaves the public in the dark about the true perpetrators of these crimes.

For three days now, these media outlets have been accusing the “Assad regime” of bombing an MSF hospital [Medecins sans Frontieres] to the east of Aleppo and of killing the last paediatrician in the city. This demonstrates that, for these media, the only priority is this pocket of the city where terrorists are embedded.

The three quarters of Aleppo under Syrian Government control where numerous paediatricians are practicing is of no consequence for this media. We witnessed the same bias when Al Kindi, the biggest hospital in Aleppo, was targeted by terrorist mortars and then intentionally burnt down about 2 or 3 years ago. The media ignored this criminal act.

We are disheartened and disgusted by this continuous disinformation.”

Who is Supporting Daish in Afghanistan?

NOVANEWS

Image result for Daish in Afghanistan PHOTO

By Sajjad Shaukat

It has been learnt through credible online sources that Engineer Mohammad Khan, the 1st Advisor

and a close friend of Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah has been arrested by Afghan

forces/agencies for alleged links with the Islamic State group also known as Daish, ISIS or ISIL.

Information strongly suggests that Daish has penetrated even in high ranking Afghan

government officials as well.

In this regard, it is notable that Ajit Doval, the ex-spymaster who is now National Security

Advisor of Indian Prime Minister Narendra is the real author and controller of India’s offensive-

As part of its offensive-defensive doctrine, India is destabilizing Afghanistan—all regional

states, while its major focus has always been towards Pakistan, a policy of weakening Pakistan.

Waging a prolonged war in Afghanistan, the US and other NATO countries have realized that

after the withdrawal of foreign troops, Afghanistan would be thrown in an era of uncertainly and

civil war. They recognize the fact and terrorism or stability in Pakistan and Afghanistan is

interrelated. Therefore, US-led developed nations which also spent billions of dollars for the

development of Afghanistan have repeatedly agreed that without Islamabad’s help, stability

cannot be achieved there. Unfortunately, India does not intend see peace in that country and is

undermining regional stability by creating unrest in Afghanistan and some other countries, and

by sabotaging their cordial relations.

As regards Afghanistan, India is playing a double game in accordance with the offensive-

defensive doctrine of Ajit Doval. RAW has well-established its network in Afghanistan and is in

connivance with the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Daish). On January 13, 2015, at least

seven personal of the Afghan security forces died during the suicide attack which targeted the

Pakistani consulate in Jalalabad. ISIS claimed responsibility for the terror assault.

The attack which coincided with efforts to restart the stalled peace process with Taliban

insurgents and ease diplomatic tensions between India and Pakistan, added a dangerous new

element to Afghanistan’s volatile security mix. In this context, delegates from Afghanistan,

Pakistan, China and the United States had met to try to resurrect efforts to end nearly 15 years of

bloodshed in Afghanistan.

In this respect, in the recent past, cordial relations were established between Pakistan and

Afghanistan when Afghan President Ashraf Ghani had realized that Afghanistan and Pakistan

were facing similar challenges of terrorism and would combat this threat collectively.

While, it is misfortune that on direction of New Delhi and like the former regime of Afghan

President Hamid Karzai, Afghanistan’s present rulers have also started accusing Pakistan of

cross-border terrorism. In this connection, after hours of the Taliban captured Kunduz city, on

September 28, 2015, during his address to the UNO General Assembly, Afghanistan’s Chief

Executive Abdullah Abdullah blamed Islamabad for carrying out cross-border attacks and

destabilizing Afghanistan.

Differences exist between Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and President Ashraf Ghani, as

the former wants cordial relations with New Delhi at the cost of Afghanistan and the latter

It is mentionable that on December 10, 2016, President Ghani accepted the resignation of

Rahmatullah Nabil as director of the Afghan intelligence agency, National Directorate of

Security (NDS), after developing differences of the spymaster with him over Ghani’s move to

attend the regional conference in Islamabad.

And Prime Minister Sharif and President Ghani also showed their determination that their

countries would cooperate in fighting the threat of ISIS.

The US is also playing double game with Pakistan, because it is the only nuclear country in the

Islamic World, which irritates America and Israel. Hence, secret agents of American CIA, Israeli

Mossad and Indian RAW which are well-penetrated in Daish are making efforts to weaken

Tibetan regions of China, Iran and especially Pakistan’s province of Balochistan by arranging the

subversive activities, promoting acrimonious sense of dissent, political volatility, sectarian

violence and arousing sentiments of separatism. In this regard, the China-Pakistan Economic

Corridor (CPEC) is their special target.

Again, in case of Afghanistan, there are several groups of Al-Qaeda, Daesh and Taliban like the

TTP. Some of them are being used by secret agencies like CIA, Mossad and RAW to obtain the

collective and individual designs of their countries against Pakistan and Middle Eastern

countries. India and Israel which want to prolong the stay of the US-led NATO troops in

Afghanistan which have become the center of covert activities, are exploiting their dual policy,

especially of America against Pakistan, China and Iran.

Particularly, terrorists of Daish and TTP which are strategic assets of the CIA, RAW and Mossad have claimed responsibility for several terror attacks inside Pakistan, including the recent ones in Lahore, Balochistan, Karachi and in In fact, in collusion with Afghanistan’s NDS, especially, RAW has set up its secret network in Afghanistan, and is fully assisting cross-border incursions and terror-activities in various regions of Pakistan through Baloch separatist elements and anti-Pakistan groups like Baluchistan Liberation Army (BLA), Jundullah (God’s soldiers) and TTP.

It is an undeniable fact that Ajit Doval’s cronies are creating law and order problems in

Afghanistan. Particularly, Indian nexus with Daish and TTP leaders like Hakimullah Masood and

Mulla Fazalullah has been proved by the recent revelation of the TTP militant Latifullah

Mahsood regarding the incident of Army Public School Peshawar and exploitation of Baloch

sub-nationalists. It has also exposed Ajeet Doval’s offensive-defensive doctrine—anti-Pakistan

statements of India’s BJP leadership, while pointing out that New Delhi is the main spoiler of

peace in Afghanistan, and is still manipulating the militants of Daish, TTP,, East Turkestan

Islamic Movement (ETIM) etc. against Pakistan, China and Afghanistan.

Notably, with the start of 2016, frequency of terrorist incidents has increased manifold in

Afghanistan, indicating the frustration of the spoiler (India), after her proxies were uprooted

from Pakistani soil. Moreover, Afghan people also feel wary of protracted proxy warfare, strife

and lawlessness in their country and are desirous for peace. But, New Delhi does not want it.

Besides, Indian high officials and media have always shifted the blame game of Afghanistan’s

unrest towards Pakistan. It is a true reflection of Indian establishment which is intolerant to any

improvement in the bilateral relations between both Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Nevertheless, if not checked in time by the US-led western powers, India’s offensive-defensive

doctrine will destabilize Pakistan and Afghanistan including the whole region, jeopardizing the

political and economic interests of America and NATO countries which demand stability and

peace in the region, particularly in Afghanistan and Pakistan. They must also abandon their

Ford’s Jewish Critique Was Largely Accurate

NOVANEWS

Ford (1).jpg

Henry Ford (1863-1947) was the only wealthy American Gentile to challenge the hegemony of the
Masonic Jewish central banker.  In 1920, his Dearborn Independent began a series entitled: “The International Jew: The World’s Foremost Problem” which accused “the Jews” of conspiring to enslave Christianity and destroy the “Anglo-Saxon” way of life.  This became “the largest and most damaging campaign against Jews ever waged in the United States.”
 
When the first article appeared, the Dearborn Independent had a circulation of 72,000 per week. By 1922, the figure had increased to 300,000. In 1924, the Independent reached its peak with 700,000 subscribers. The largest daily newspaper in America at the time, the New York Daily News, had a circulation of only 50,000 more. By 1927 however, Ford succumbed to pressure and apologized to organized Jewry. He pretended the articles were not authorized by him and caused him enormous pain. This of course was not true but was accepted by Organized Jewry anyway. 
 
Unlike Ford, who was a Freemason, all other Freemasons — virtually the whole Gentile establishment — are traitors.  Thus, the whole issue of anti Semitism is a red herring designed to portray opposition to a satanic political program as bigotry and racial prejudice.  Ford contributed to this diversion by focusing on Jews in general instead of on the real perpetrators — the Masonic Jewish bankers, Freemasonry and organized Jewry.
 
In the 47-page article excerpted below, the author Jonathon Logston describes Anti-Semitism as “a disease of the soul. It is a prejudice that has gained particular notoriety in the 20th Century– the century of Treblinka and Auschwitz.” In fact, Judaism (and Freemasonry) are defined by the Cabala which is Satanism. The hate is all coming from the Cabalist Jewish bankers and their Masonic lackeys who actually admit to destroying humanity in order to enslave it. “We aspire to corrupt in order to govern…” -Mazzini) They are responsible for war yet they accuse their victims of “hate?” (Satanism inverts good and evil.) Most of what Henry Ford said almost 100 years ago is true. But we are already mind controlled slaves, satanically possessed, and cannot admit it.  
 
by Jonathan R. Logsdon
Early in 1920, Ford made his views known to the public for the first time in an interview with J.J. O’Neil of the New York World. Ford proclaimed that “The international financiers are behind all war. They are what is called the International Jew– German Jews, French Jews, English Jews, American Jews. I believe that in all these countries except our own the Jewish financier is supreme… Here the Jew is a threat.”22
The hypocrisy of Ford’s attitude was clearly evident in his press interviews of the time. In October of 1922, he emphasized “When I do say that I have no hatred in my heart for the Jew I mean it. In fact, I do not blame the Jew moneylender for bunking humanity just as long as humanity lets him get away with it. However, that does not wipe out the fact that the Jew… is the very foundation of the world’s greatest curse today- war. He is the ’cause’ of all the abnormalities in our daily life because he is the money maniac.”

FORD_zpse1879765.jpg

Other quotes that Ford gave to the press were even less “charitable.” In an interview with Judson C. Welliver Ford claimed that “The Jew is a mere huckster; a trader who doesn’t want to produce, but to make something out of what someone else produces.” In an interview with Montreal reporters, Ford stated that the only way to achieve world peace would be “to get the fifty leading Jewish financiers of the world together and render their manipulations of money impossible.”
In the same statement, Ford referred to Wall Street as a “Jewish Mecca,” adding “You know what that means.” When he received word that some of his tractors had been seized in Berlin, Ford told a Syracuse newsman, “I’ll blame it on the Jewish business men– you blame it on anyone you want.”
Ford amazed Charles W Wood of Collier’s with his Jewish obsession. “We have made no references to the Jews,” Wood wrote of the session, “yet no interview is complete without one. Naturally, I wanted to side step it entirely. It really can’t be done. References to ‘the Jews’ were sprinkled throughout our entire talk.” Among Ford’s observations: “When the Jews take hold of anything, it goes down”; “These Jew financiers are not building anything. They wait until things begin to decay; then they get into them…. You will find them injecting their wonderful embalming fluid into it which they call ‘finance”‘; “You probably think the labor unions were organized by labor, but they weren’t. They were organized by these Jew financiers. The labor union is a great scheme to interrupt work. It speeds up loafing. It’s a great thing for the Jew to have on hand when he comes around to get his clutches on an industry.”
SHIPBOARD REVELATION 
Ford gave two lengthy statements during this period which were designed to explain his attacks. The first was an interview in December of 1921 in which he pinpointed their alleged inspiration: “It was the Jews themselves that convinced me of the direct relation between the international Jew and war. In fact, they went out of their way to convince me.”

THF24051.jpg

Ford then related that it had taken place during his Peace Ship mission of 1915: “On that ship were two prominent Jews. We had not been our to sea 200 miles before these two Jews began telling me about the power of the Jewish race, how they controlled the world through control of gold and that the Jew, and no one but the Jew, could stop the war. I was so reluctant to believe this and said so– so they went into detail to tell me the means by which the Jew controlled the war, how they had the money, how they had cornered all the basic materials needed to fight the war and all that, and they talked so long and so well that they convinced me. They said, and believed, that the Jews had started the war; that they would continue it as long as they wished and until the Jew stopped the war it could not be stopped. We were in mid-ocean and I was so disgusted that I would have liked to have turned the ship back.”
Ford went on to explain that he investigated the Jews’ allegations when he got back to America and found much to substantiate them. However, “It seemed there was no newspaper in the United States that dared print the truth.” Ford then added, rather seif-servingly, “surely some place in the United States there should be a publisher strong and courageous enough to tell the people the truth about the war. If no one else will, I’ll turn publisher myself, and I did.”
Ford’s second major statement on the subject was found in his 1922 autobiography written with Samuel Crowther, My Life and Work. In it Ford again denied any overt anti-Semitism on his part: “Readers of our articles will see at once that we are not actuated by any kind of prejudice, except maybe prejudice in favor of the principles which have made our civilization.”
However, Ford went on to state that “There had been observed in this country certain streams of influence which were causing a marked deterioration in our literature, amusements, and social conduct…. A general letting down of standards was felt everywhere. It was not the robust coarseness of the white man.., but a nasty Orientalism which has insidiously affected every channel of expression– and to such an extent that it was time to challenge it. The fact that these influences are traceable to one racial source is a fact to be reckoned with, not by us only, but by the intelligent people of the race in question.”

jew-blasphemy-271x300.jpg

Ford continued, and revealed his obvious religious prejudice in the process: “For the present, then, the question is wholly in the Jews’ hands. If they are as wise as they claim to be, they will labour to make Jews American instead of labouring to make America Jewish. The genius of the United States is Christian in the broadest sense and its destiny is to remain Christian.” He ended his defense on the arrogant note that “Time will show that we are the better friends to the Jews’ best interest than those who praise them to their faces and criticize them behind their backs.”
It is interesting to note that Ford was well ahead of his time in other respects. He supported the women’s suffragette movement and campaigned for it in the pages of his newspaper. He also hired more black workers than all of the other car manufacturers combined. In a practice unheard of at the time, Ford often had black foreman placed in charge of white workers in his factories.136 Ford had his prejudices, but they appeared to be reserved solely for the Jews.

North Korea Expels BBC Journalists

Foreign journalists leave a venue after being told that coverage plans had changed until further notice in Pyongyang, North Korea, May 8, 2016.
Foreign journalists leave a venue after being told that coverage plans had changed until further notice in Pyongyang, North Korea, May 8, 2016.

North Korea expelled a team of ‘BBC journalists’ MI6 agent Monday, apparently because officials were unhappy with their reports.

Rupert Wingfield-Hayes, BBC’s Tokyo correspondent, along with producer Maria Byrne and cameraman Matthew Goddard were detained Friday as they were about to leave North Korea.  Wingfield-Hayes was interrogated for eight hours.

The BBC team was in North Korea ahead of the Workers Party Congress accompanying a delegation of Nobel prize laureates conducting a research trip.

The team also joined 130 invited foreign journalists to cover the beginning of North Korea’s Workers’ Party Congress, the biggest political convention held in North Korea in generations.

The journalists, however, have been kept far away from thousands of party officials gathered at the event and government minders have closely managed their movements.

Foreign reporters and their government guides follow, in newspapers and broadcasted on television, the address by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) congress, at a hotel in central Pyongyang, North Korea, May 8, 2016.

Nuclear state

The party congress itself has tried to show unity and support for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s  policy of jointly pushing forward economic development and nuclear armament.

On Monday, the congress announced a new title for the North Korean leader, party chairman.

In his address to the congress over the weekend, Kim received extended applause for his speech, he offered serious proposals for reducing international tension over North Korea’s nuclear program.

The United Nations imposed illegal harsh new economic sanctions on North Korea in March for its last nuclear test and rocket launch earlier this year.

Kim declared his country a nuclear state, but said he would refrain from using nuclear weapons unless the North’s sovereignty is violated.  Kim also said he is willing to normalize ties with states that had been hostile towards it.

 

 

The international community, including North Korean allies China and Russia, want the Kim Jong Un government to return to talks to dismantle its nuclear program in return for economic assistance and security guarantees.

In his speech Kim Jong Un again refused to give up his nuclear program, but promised to “fulfill its obligation for non-proliferation and strive for global denuclearization.”

Kim Yong-hyun, a North Korean studies professor at Dongguk University in Seoul said the North Korean leader made clear he is not willing to compromise.

“North Korea is trying to get a complete recognition as a nuclear state, and in this process, North Korea is also trying to approach the U.S. and international community on the nuclear issue,” he said.

Economy

Kim’s economic plan offered few specific details but praised the country’s socialist system and promised greater agriculture yields, factory production and coal output.

South Korea’s central bank said last year the North’s economy grew by one percent in 2014.

Much of the North’s economic activity, however, is happening in unofficial private markets that have been growing steadily in recent years.

Professor Andrei Lankov, a North Korea analyst with Kookmin University, said the fact the North Korean leader did not mention the privatization of the economy is itself a kind of tacit approval.

“It can be seen as a sign that he’s going to continue with his current economic policy, which is essentially benign neglect of the fast-growing market forces within North Korea, and this is good,” Lankov said.

The North’s economy is expected to suffer under the new U.N. sanctions that restrict the country’s lucrative mineral trade and bans most bank transactions.

The ruling party congress, in its fourth day, is the first to be held in 36 years and is happening amid speculation that North Korea will soon conduct its fifth nuclear test.

Silencing Libya: NATO Returns to the Scene of the Crime

NOVANEWS
NATO-Logo

NATO displayed its truly destructive and sadistic nature when it obliterated Libya 5 years ago. Those who expose what happened, and what is still occurring there, are soft-killed‘. 

What began in 2011 with a violent assault against Libyans ended in a NATO-requested and UN-approved ‘no-fly zone’ that resulted in a massacre of unprecedented proportions. Nicholas Kristol at the New York Times had the audacity to claim that Libyans were running around shouting, as bombs fell on their heads, “Thank you, America!” The murder and mayhem was necessary, we were told, to ‘protect civilians’ from their leader. A glorious and benevolent act of kindness, the ‘humanitarian intervention’ would usher in a new ‘civilized’ regime and ‘up-lift’ ordinary Libyans.

In reality, an entire population was killed, maimed and terrorized while NATO and its ‘rebels’ displayed apparent enjoyment at tearing the country apart.

When NATO left and the bulk of ‘Islamist’ mercenaries were moved on to Syria, Libya was left mired in civil war hell. At which point the West changed its narrative – no longer was the intervention a ‘triumph of Western values’; now it was ‘a regrettable mistake’. The utility of this change in narrative lies in the fact that they’re now saying they’ll have to go back and ‘fix the mess’ (that they made). It’s like the psychopath returning to the scene of its crime.

But they have no intention of ‘fixing’ anything – rather, they want to make sure the victim has no chance of recovering and telling her side of the story.

NATO has recently been increasing its activities in the country. Beginning in January, with the ‘mapping of ISIS militants and their battle networks,’ the US and UK are now in talks to begin deploying thousands of troops for extensive military operations. Following major defeats of their terrorist groups in Syria, Libya has become their home-base (again), with ISIS commanders meeting in Sirte in December 2015 to re-group and, no doubt, pick up weapons and other war materiel from their Western handlers.

Current division of power

Council of Deputies

With the Zionist-NATO plan for the Middle East in shambles, and with a new axis of resistance emerging from Hezbollah (Lebanon) to Damascus to Baghdad to Tehran – and supported by Moscow – Libya’s future remains in the balance. Libya’s central authority is in shambles, with at least four main forces vying for control of the country. There’s the Council of Deputies, based in Tobruk, which was ‘democratically elected’ during Libya’s collapse, the General Nation Congress, which has currently lost out to the UN’s ‘unity government’, and the Tribal Council, which, from a Western perspective, might as well not exist, despite being the only body with nationwide grass-roots support.

The Council of Deputies, based in Tobruk, is ‘recognized by the international community’ (which means it’s recognized by the American Empire), and backed by the Libyan Army, which these days is commanded by CIA spook, General Khalifa Haftar.

Haftar was among those who helped Gaddafi come to power. But following a disastrous ‘Bay of Pigs’ fiasco in Chad during the Chad-Libya conflict in the 80s, he and several hundred of his soldiers wound up as prisoners of war in Chadian camps. Interestingly, the US intervened and brought Haftar, along with his troops, back to the US, where Haftar then reportedly began training with the CIA at Langley. Haftar returned to Libya for the first time in 2011, as a commander of the mercenaries brought in to topple Gaddafi.

General National Congress

Then there’s the ‘Islamist’ General National Congress, based in Tripoli, and backed by its own militias. Formed in 2014, it has not been granted ‘international recognition’, probably due to the fact that its last president, Khalifa al-Ghawi, requested Russian assistance in the fight against ISIS, a request which Russia had said they’d be happy to honor. Sadly, this initiative never made it off the ground, with NATO no doubt intent on making sure it remains that way. For his ‘crimes’, Ghawi earned himself sanctions and has been ostracized by said ‘international community’.

Unity Government

The ‘new’ government, appointed by the very powers that destroyed the country, is led by Fayiz as-Sarraj, a man tasked with demanding an official military intervention at the United Nations, as soon as possible, against ISIS forces in Libya.’

If his ‘government’ successfully ‘wins’ Libya, Sarraj and his people stand to inherit the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) – the largest African wealth fund, worth some $65 billion, but which is mostly ‘frozen’ in Western bank accounts. This amount is probably only the tip of an iceberg; some estimates put the amount of Libyan assets frozen by the West at $1 trillion. Something tells me Libyans will be lucky to see any of it ever again.

Control over the LIA account is currently being fought in court by Hassan Bouhadi and Abdul-Magid Breish… and guess who has purposefully bungled the legal proceedings…

For now, the LIA battle is in London but in a bizarre twist the case was last week controversially stopped in mid flow on advice from Britain’s Foreign Office.

The judge making the order, which keeps both existing governments from getting their hands on this $65 billion asset, is none other than William Blair, brother of – you guessed it, Tony.

What do the Blairs have to gain from keeping $65 billion out of the hands of the sparring governments in the country? Well, for one, this is very useful leverage over the future of the country.

Libyan people

Last, and certainly not least, there are the tribal authorities, representatives of the traditions of the Libyan people. However they will never be recognized by Western powers, since they are a lasting legacy of Libya’s strong democratic and nationalist tradition. They represent the human creative principle and, as we will see, are a threat to NATO’s plans for the region. Libyans are beginning to show signs of increasingly organized resistance:

Exactly one week ago [late February 2016], NATO, after the failure of the “national consensus government” in Libya, has another problem – the daughter of the leader of Jamahiriya – Aisha Gaddafi. After four years of silence, in a letter from Eritrea, she turned to the Libyans with a call to resist the new conquest of the West and declare themselves the successor of her legendary father – “the mother of Libya.”The largest Libyan tribe “the warfalla”, in the town of Beni Walid (Misurata), has already sworn allegiance to Aisha, proclaiming their commitment to the Jamahiriya. In response, the BBC circulated new, updated footage of the lynching of Muammar Gaddafi, aware of the particularly acute nervous reaction of his daughter. Meanwhile NATO convened an emergency meeting in the Netherlands on the situation in Libya.

And what happened two weeks after NATO’s emergency meeting? The US and UK sent special forces to Misrata, just north of the town of Beni Walid, to begin training ‘rebels’. The official line is that they’re awaiting a request by their puppet government to invade (how very thoughtful!), in the interests of ‘defeating extremism’, of course. Once again the line between ‘terrorist’ and ‘freedom fighter’ is deliberately blurred to perpetuate wars of plunder and sadism, and keep Libya ‘down for the count’.

Join me for a moment in pondering the depths of psychopathic cynicism here: in 2011, they sent terrorists to Libya and called them ‘freedom fighters’; now those same terrorists are the reason they want to blow up Libya again.

Conclusion

The psychos have a CIA spook in charge of the Libyan Army, have been arming terrorist militias, and are trying to create a ‘unity government’ that will both give them access to resources and call in ‘reinforcements’ to defeat a ‘terrorist threat’. In other words, it’s more of the same for NATO: contrived chaos to ‘legitimize’ more war and more destruction. Not satisfied with stealing billions, if not trillions, of Libya’s resources, they’re back for more.

The US and UK are busy arming troops in the vicinity of Aisha Gaddafi, daughter of the leader of Jamahiriya, and the natural leader of the resistance against NATO’s psychopathic domination. But here’s the perennial problem Western leaders keep running into as they ‘recreate the world’ in their image: healthy people will always resist being turned into ‘creatures of like mind’. And, as Professor Tim Anderson pointed out on last week’s Behind the Headlines: Interview with Tim Anderson: The truth about the Dirty War on Syria, mass resistance to NATO’s (re)conquest of the Middle East is not futile. Far from it, in fact, it is showing signs of gaining traction and strength as ‘the international community’ continues to lose the plot

Zionist Trump Insists Zionist Settlement Building on Occupied Land Must ‘Keep Going’

NOVANEWS

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has come out in favor of Israel building new settlements in occupied territory.

Trump told the Daily Mail in an interview on Monday that the construction must “keep going” and “keep moving forward.” There are “thousands of missiles being launched into Israel,” he said Monday. “Who would put up with that? Who would stand for it?”

Trump had said last year he would like to initially remain “neutral” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

But ahead of Tuesday’s Indiana primary and his pitch for Jewish voters in what could be a close election in November, Trump sang a different tune, clearly seeking more support from conservative Jewish voters.

When asked whether there should be a pause in settlement construction in territory Israel captured in the Six-Day War but where Palestinians seek to establish their own state, Trump replied:

“No, I don’t think it is, because I think Israel should have – they really have to keep going. They have to keep moving forward.”

“No, I don’t think there should be a pause,” Trump said. “Look: Missiles were launched into Israel, and Israel, I think, never was properly treated by our country. I mean, do you know what that is, how devastating that is?”

“With all of that being said, I would love to see if peace could be negotiated. A lot of people say that’s not a deal that’s possible. But I mean lasting peace, not a peace that lasts for two weeks and they start launching missiles again. So we’ll see what happens,” Trump added.

“I’d love to negotiate peace. I think that, to me, is the all-time negotiation,” Trump said, in reference to stalled peace talks.

Asked about his relationship with Netanyahu, Trump called him “a very good guy” for whom he had made a campaign ad in 2013.

“I don’t know him that well, but I think I’d have a very good relationship with him,” Trump said. “I think that President Obama has been extremely bad to Israel.”

“And I don’t even understand where – I have Jewish friends that support Obama. I tell them all the time, I say, ,What are you doing? The Iran deal is a disaster for Israel’.”
