We are closer to Jerusalem and to its liberation

The scene of the printers and the surrendered is not the true picture of our nation … We are closer to Jerusalem and to its liberation

By: Sammi Ibeahem,Sr

The Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Hassan Hassan Nasrallah, stressed that “the resistance paves all the ground for the day that will inevitably come and we all pray in Jerusalem,” stressing the “firm commitment of Hezbollah” to the Palestinian cause.

During a speech on the occasion of the International Day of Jerusalem, Nasrallah said: “Today we are as close as possible to Jerusalem and to its liberation despite all the international and regional transformations and all the temptations.”

He added that “Jerusalem Day this year misses a great leader on the road to Jerusalem, Leader Hajj Qassem Soleimani,” noting that “Soleimani was the largest paving for the great victory of the resistance coming to liberate Jerusalem.”

He reiterated that “the nation today is as close as possible to the liberation of Jerusalem through faith, steadfastness, patience, honesty, sincerity, and communication between states and powers of the axis of resistance.”

Nasrallah also stressed that “the scene of the printed and the surrendered is not the true image of our nation,” and said that “the real scene on which it is built is the steadfastness and escalation of the resistance forces, governments, countries, factions, movements, peoples, and elites.”

This, and the Secretary-General of Hezbollah believed that “World Jerusalem Day is” from the blessed legacy of Khomeini, “noting that” Khomeini expressed a firm and final commitment to Iran and all of the resistance fighters towards the question of Palestine and Jerusalem. “

Nasrallah called “all the people of our nation to revive Jerusalem Day in the appropriate ways medialy, culturally, politically, socially and technically as part of all the preventive measures required in connection with the Corona epidemic,” concluding his speech by saying that “Jerusalem is the goal to which all eyes, minds, hearts, forearms and feet go, and we will reach it.”

How many Nazi Gastapo does it take to arrest one Palestinian mother and daughter

By: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

15 military vehicles full of unspecified number of Nazi soldiers.

Nazi forces Friday overnight detained a Palestinian mother and her teen daughter from Yaabad town, south of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

WAFA correspondent said that over 15 Nazi military vehicles raided Yaabad, where soldiers surrounded a local house, dragged a 45-year-old Palestinian mother of eight children along with her 16-year-old daughter out, and ultimately detained them, leading them to the jeeps that were parked near the home.

He pointed out that the mother was detained for the fourth consecutive time and her daughter for the second consecutive time. The father, 48, was detained on May 12, and has been held at al-the Nazi Camp of Jalama for interrogation.

During the raid, gun-toting Nazi soldiers ransacked a number of civilian houses, going inside, turning them upside down and assaulting families members.

The raid triggered confrontations during which soldiers opened fire towards local protesting teens. No injuries were reported though.

The town has been a scene of daily raids and confrontations for eleven days since an Israeli soldier was killed by a rock dropped on his head during the predawn raid on May 12. Some 44 Palestinians were detained from the town, including women and children.

Nazi forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.

These raids, which take place also in areas under the full control of the Palestinian Authority, are conducted with no need for a search warrant, whenever and wherever the military chooses in keeping with its sweeping arbitrary powers.

According to Palestinian figures, roughly 5,700 Palestinians — including numerous women and children — are currently languishing in Nazi detention Camps.

Under Nazi military law army commanders have full executive, legislative and judicial authority over 3 million Palestinians living in the West Bank. Palestinians have no say in how this authority is exercised.

Nazi entity is a safe haven for criminals and terrorists

Palestinian-American civil rights activist Alex Odeh [Twitter]

Palestinian-American civil rights activist Alex Odeh [Twitter]

Asa Winstanley

David Sheen, a friend of mine and a fellow journalist, published a great investigative story the other month. It tells a tale of murder, racism, duplicity, and justice denied.

In October 1985, Palestinian-American civil rights activist Alex Odeh was murdered by Zionist fanatics in California.

Odeh was blown to smithereens by a pipe bomb. His murderers have never been arrested.

Hours after Odeh’s brutal slaying, Irv Rubin, the national chairperson of the Jewish Defence League (JDL) at the time, justified the murder: “I have no tears for Mr. Odeh. He got exactly what he deserved.”

Despite a $1 million reward being announced by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for information leading to the conviction of Odeh’s killers, no arrests have ever been made.

OPINION: A new Jewish Defence League?

The police and the FBI’s main suspects have so far escaped justice. They are Baruch Ben-Yosef (born Andy Green) and Israel Fuchs (formerly known as Keith Fuchs).

They have been able to do so for one reason: Ben-Yosef/Green and Fuchs fled the US for Israel some months after the terrorist bombing.

In my view, they are being protected by the Israeli government.

The FBI is being obstructed in its investigation by the Israelis. On the flip side, it seems clear that the US government is not exactly pulling out all the stops. No pressure is being put on Israel to bring Odeh’s killers to justice, to extradite them to stand trial in the US, or even to cooperate with the investigation in any way.

As Sheen detailed in his extensive piece, Odeh was a Palestinian born in the majority-Christian village of Jifna in the West Bank (close to a particularly extremist Israeli colony). He dedicated his life and activism in the US working for the Arab-American Discrimination Committee, or ADC.

READ: US student declares plans to ‘eliminate Palestinians from the world’

He worked to build awareness of the plight of his people under Israeli occupation and to build bridges with US Jews. On the very day of his murder, he had been due to speak at the Congregation B’nai Tzedek, a Reform synagogue in Santa Ana.

Very clearly, his killers saw such efforts as a threat to their extremist Zionist agenda.

Due to Israel’s racist “Law of Return”, Fuchs and Ben-Yosef were able to claim citizenship in the country where they are now fugitives from the law. Israel has for decades stonewalled FBI attempts to bring the killers to justice.

This is all quite typical behaviour for Israel – certainly one of the world’s worst rogue states. Jewish extremists like Fuchs and Ben-Yosef are habitually harboured in Israel.

Israeli protection of these racist criminals is no aberration. Zionist extremists fleeing justice from all over the world know they will be safe in Israel.  Grégory Chelli for example, the French hacker, known as Ulcan, is accused in a French court of making hoax phone calls, one of them lethal. Chelli was a member of the French branch of the JDL and fled to Israel before the court could try him.

Grégory Chelli for example, the French hacker, known as Ulcan [Twitter]

Grégory Chelli for example, the French hacker, known as Ulcan [Twitter]

Using weasel words, the official Israeli government has in the past stated its condemnation of the JDL’s openly racist founder, Meir Kahane. He won a seat in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, in the 1980s, but his party was later banned.

In reality, the government of Benjamin Netanyahu and his “moderate” ally Benny Gantz, along with his coalition government and allies in the so-called Labour Party, have all endorsed the racism of Kahane – even if they had a personal rivalry with him.

In practice, Kahane’s policy of driving all Palestinians out of the so-called “Land of Israel” by force is endorsed in one form or another by all Zionist parties in Israel. The differences between them are merely ones of emphasis, strategy, and personal rivalry.

Kahanist settlers occupying the West Bank today raise the slogan: “Today everybody knows Kahane was right!” Kahanism is the logical conclusion of Zionism.

OPINION: Notre Dame of Gaza, our mosques and churches are also burning

Today, Odeh’s killers are being sheltered in the illegal Zionist colonies which occupy stolen Palestinian land in the West Bank.

Ben-Yosef is particularly brazen – as Sheen’s reporting shows. He is a high-profile lawyer in Israel, defending some of the most fanatical Zionist terrorists, religious extremists, and murderers.

He is also at the forefront of the “Temple Movement”, the Jewish extremist group that wants to blow up Al-Aqsa Mosque and raze the Dome of the Rock – which are some of Islam’s holiest sites, two important Palestinian national symbols – in order to build a synagogue.

BBC bias just went nuclear to defend disgraced Dominic Cummings

Dominic Cummings is at the centre of yet another scandal during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The Mirror reported that he was investigated by police after allegedly breaking lockdown rules. But Cummings needn’t worry. Because he had the BBC on hand to leap to his defence.

Cummings: did he break lockdown rules?

On 22 May, the Mirror and Guardian ran a joint exclusive that revealed Cummings, Boris Johnson’s “top aide”, allegedly flouted rules surrounding self-isolation and lockdown. It claimed that:

The Prime Minister’s chief-of-staff was spotted by witnesses at his parents’ home in Durham, more than 250 miles from his London property.

We will not share your information with third parties. Please see our Privacy Policy for information on how we use your data and data protection rights.

The Mirror further claimed:

Mr Cummings started suffering from a bout of coronavirus at the end of March which left him self-isolating with his wife, journalist Mary Wakefield, and young son for 14 days.

The world just broke a disturbing climate record despite the global lockdowns

Tracy Keeling 

Downing Street claimed he was holed up in his London home – and afterwards his wife wrote about ’emerging from quarantine’ into the London lockdown.

But a joint investigation by the Mirror and the Guardian can reveal that Mr Cummings was in fact in the North of England.

The Mirror went on to detail how a neighbour of Cummings’ parents had spotted him and his son in the garden. And in the most bizarre twist (if that’s possible) to this story, Abba’s Dancing Queen was allegedly “blasting” out of the house. But the bigger point is a senior government adviser breached coronavirus rules.

Downing Street says…

After declining to comment at first, Sky News reported that a Downing Street spokesperson essentially denied part of the story. They said:

Owing to his wife being infected with suspected coronavirus and the high likelihood that he would himself become unwell, it was essential for Dominic Cummings to ensure his young child could be properly cared for…

His sister and nieces had volunteered to help so he went to a house near to but separate from his extended family in case their help was needed. His sister shopped for the family and left everything outside. At no stage was he or his family spoken to by the police about this matter, as is being reported. His actions were in line with coronavirus guidelines. Mr Cummings believes he behaved reasonably and legally.

So, it seems that while Cummings did travel to Durham, he didn’t stay in his parent’s house and the police weren’t involved. Allegedly. This is despite even the Tory-friendly Sun reporting that police had confirmed they had visited Cummings’ parents’ house.

I ain’t getting on no plane!

Then, the situation all went a bit like the 80s TV show The A-Team. That is, as the opening lines of its titles used to say:

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

Cummings clearly has his ‘A-Team’ on speed dial. Because the BBC quickly stepped in.

First, analysis from political correspondent Leila Nathoo said that:

A source close to Dominic Cummings is insistent that he didn’t break the rules.

Alex Andreou@sturdyAlex

BBC in full Defend No. 10 mode.

Mishal Husain keeps asking Ian Blackford “What would you do” if you and your partner were both seriously ill and your sister offered to look after your 4yo?

But it was political editor Laura Kuenssberg whose response to the Mirror scoop was perhaps most staggering.

Enter Kuenssberg

OK, so she effectively put Cummings’ side of the story across – using those always dubious “sources” that got her and other journalists into hot water during the 2019 general election:

Laura Kuenssberg@bbclaurak

PM’s chief adviser did travel from London to County Durham during lockdown when he and his wife had coronavirus to stay in a separate building at his family’s farm, a source close to him confirms – source says it is not true that he was spoken to by police … https://twitter.com/PippaCrerar/status/1263907839162097666 …Pippa Crerar@PippaCrerarEXCLUSIVE: Boris Johnson’s top aide Dominic Cummings was investigated by police after breaking the Government’s own coronavirus lockdown rules.https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/dominic-cummings-investigated-police-after-22072579 …1,35520:27 – 22 May 2020Twitter Ads information and privacy4,593 people are talking about this

More “details” emerged from Kuenssberg. Problem is, these were not “details”, in fact, but a repetition of what Downing Street itself claimed:

Laura Kuenssberg@bbclaurak

Few more details this morning –
-small number of people in No 10 knew that Cummings had gone to Durham, not stayed in London -seems it was his sister who had offered to help with childcare when he and his wife fell ill
-family stayed in separate house + had no contact in the end4,21408:18 – 23 May 2020Twitter Ads information and privacy13.2K people are talking about this

But the BBC‘s political editor also perhaps did the most unsubtle bit of defence possible on Cummings’ behalf. As she literally went onto the Twitter timeline of her counterpart at the Mirror Pippa Crerar to effectively rebut the story:

Shilling for the Tories?

This is clearly not how an impartial journalist at the nation’s public service broadcaster should act. But this is the BBC, which already has form on defending Cummings in the past. Moreover, as The Canary previously reported, a senior journalist at the broadcaster confessed that its role during the pandemic has been to:

provide what the nation needs… It needs to know what’s being done about testing [for coronavirus]. It doesn’t need a great bust-up about what’s gone wrong in the recent past… the bosses are keen that we come out of this with the sense that we looked after the interest of the nation, not just our journalistic values.

So leaping to the government’s defence is all in a day’s work for the BBC. But, above the broadcaster’s shilling on behalf of the Tories, there’s a bigger point to be made about Cummings’ actions.

As a parent, Cummings was understandably concerned about the welfare of his child. But his actions reek of hypocrisy and a ‘do as I say, not as I do’ agenda. And moreover, his behaviour shows the gaping inequality at the heart of the pandemic, and UK society.

Starving children

As the Observer reported, nearly a fifth of households with children did not have enough food to eat in the five weeks leading up to May. It also noted that:

A reported 30% of lone parents and 46% of parents with a disabled child are facing food insecurity

And:

of the 621,000 children who were accessing free breakfast clubs before the pandemic, only 136,000 are being provided with an alternative. However, 31% of children entitled to free school meals are still not getting any substitute, leaving more than 500,000 children going without.

Then, around 700,000 children aged 11-18 have no internet access via a computer or laptop – while being expected to do school work at home. So the pandemic, and the Tories’ unpreparedness, has hit the poorest children in the UK the hardest. And the government has also almost forgotten the estimated 800,000 young carers aged 5-17 in the UK. In 2011, one in eight young carers were under the age of eight. As Sky News reported, Phoebe, aged eight, not only has to look after their chronically ill mother, but also her two sisters aged four and six. But so far, the government has done little to support children like her. And during the pandemic, Phoebe’s already difficult situation has probably been made a whole lot worse.

Our broken society: exacerbated by the BBC 

We live in a society where some children have been going through hell during the pandemic. Others, though, get to travel across the country to be protected from it. This is the real problem with the Cummings scandal. So the BBC leaping to his defence is damning. But its failure to recognise the horrendous inequality his actions sum up is another part of this disgraceful, systemic problem.

Jobless total rockets

As the economic crisis bites, over a million workers in Britain have been forced precipitously onto the breadline.

Proletarian writers

While company directors pay themselves fat salaries via the furlough scheme, well over a million workers have been forced to apply for universal credit in recent weeks as the crash bites and jobs disappear, especially in the alredy insecure, low-wage gig and ‘self-employed’ sectors. UC is notorious for taking weeks to arrive and being impossible to live on when it does, forcing the poorest ever deeper into debt.

Even in the smoke and mirrors world inhabited by the official figures on unemployment and poverty, a world in which thousands of jobless are routinely airbrushed out as ‘economically inactive’ or ‘self-employed’, one can still glean some sense of the helter-skelter disintegration of economic life in Britain, accelerated by the health emergency but having its root cause in the crisis of overproduction.

The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has admitted that in just the first three weeks of the lockdown, commencing on 20 March, the number of workers claiming universal credit (UC) nationally shot up from 3,012,736 to 4,209,795.

The impact on the poorest in society is getting worse, as is emphasised by the anti-poverty charity Turn2us: “This sudden increase in unemployment as a result of coronavirus is, while not surprising, a significant cause for concern. We have heard from hundreds of thousands of newly unemployed people who have already spent their savings and now face hunger, homelessness and debt.”

Particularly hard hit are poverty-stricken families in the south west of England. The DWP admits that in Devon and Cornwall the number of workers registering for UC rose by over a hundred thousand just in the first four weeks of the health emergency, a figure which must by now be many times greater.

On 12 March, there were 228,043 UC claimants; by 9 April there were 334,822, representing a 46.8 percent leap. (Number of SW universal credit claimants tops 300k since lockdown by William Telford, Business Live, 19 May 2020)

The above-cited figures are from official sources, and so will have already been reheated many times before being served up for public consumption. Yet even such doctored stats as these reveal enough for workers to start drawing their own conclusions about the true depth of the economic and social crisis into which we are plunging – a crisis not born of the coronavirus, but of the anarchic and inherently unstable capitalist system of production.

Communists globally mourn the passing of Comrade Michael Lucas in Toronto

Known to friends of the Soviet Union as the editor of the Northstar Compass, Michael was a selfless and dedicated internationalist.

Proletarian writers

The Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist) was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Comrade Michael Lucas in Canada. Our party held Comrade Michael in high regard and we send our sincere condolences to his family.

Our fraternal bonds with Michael Lucas stretch back many years, through his work in the worldwide anti-revisionist and pro-Soviet movement. In recent years, one of our party members was able to work closely with Michael during a prolonged spell of work in Toronto.

We reproduce his words below and fully associate ourselves with his glowing tribute to a true proletarian internationalist.

Central committee, CPGB-ML

*****

Tribute to Comrade Michael

It is with great sadness that I learned of the recent passing of Comrade Michael Lucas. My thoughts and condolences are with his family, with whom he was always very close.

I had the pleasure of working with him for some years in Toronto. By the time I met him, Michael had reached the grand age of 90, yet still remained an extremely hard-working and driven man, dedicated to upholding the glorious memory of the Soviet Union and its people, and to promoting friendship and solidarity between the Canadian people and those of the former USSR.

A true internationalist, Michael took great interest in and maintained contact with progressive people and parties throughout the world.

Michael was a leading member of the International Council for Friendship and Solidarity with the Soviet People and was editor of its paper, the Northstar Compass, throughout the 25 years that it was published.

It was a source of great inspiration to see his selfless work in preparing and editing the magazine, a task he undertook almost singlehandedly. I recall that he would often sleep in the office in order to get it to print on time.

He was also in charge, along with his wife Helen, of the wonderful Friendship House building in Toronto. Many congresses of the International Council were held there, in addition to regular meetings of the NSC editorial board and social events celebrating such key dates as International Women’s DayVictory Day and the Great October Socialist Revolution, which were always well attended and highly enjoyable.

As ever, Michael played the leading role in organising these events and ensuring their success. Friendship House also housed an extensive library of Marxist-Leninist literature, along with photographs from the former USSR – a magnificent resource for local communists.

Michael was a keen and talented artist, and many of his works decorated the walls of Friendship House. A very generous man, he would often give his away paintings, professionally framed, as gifts to comrades, friends and visitors.

Michael led a highly rewarding life, dedicated to the cause of the working class and the people of the Soviet Union. His legacy and contribution to the cause of socialism will live on for years to come.

Red salute to Comrade Michael!

Egypt records its highest daily death toll

By: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

Egypt announced on Sunday that it had recorded 752 new cases of the new Corona virus, up from 727 cases the previous day. However, the number recorded today is less than the peak reached by injuries on Friday and reached 783.

Today, the country recorded the highest number of deaths in the virus in one day since the outbreak began, as the number of new deaths reached 29, compared to 28 deaths the previous day.

Khaled Mujahid, spokesman for the Ministry of Health and Population in Egypt said that the total number registered in Egypt with the new Corona virus until today, Sunday, is 17,265 cases, including 4807 cases that have been cured and discharged from isolation and quarantine hospitals, and 764 deaths.

Egypt has been implementing general isolation measures since March, which have included the closure of schools, universities, sports clubs, cafes and places of large gatherings, and has imposed a partial curfew.

Chomsky Says Trump a ‘Sociopathic Megalomaniac’ Who Made US ‘Singularly Unprepared’ for Pandemic

New comments from the renowned academic come after he accused Trump of wanting “to destroy the prospects for all organized human life… in the near future.”

by: Andrea Germanos,

Noam Chomsky

World-renowned intellectual and author Noam Chomsky called U.S. President Donald Trump a “sociopathic megalomaniac” whose leadership drove the U.S. to become “singularly unprepared” for the coronavirus pandemic.

Chomsky’s fresh criticism of the president came in an interview with Agence France-Presse published Monday.

“The White House,” said Chomsky, “is in the hands of a sociopathic megalomaniac who’s interested in nothing but his own power, electoral prospects.”

Trump “doesn’t care what happens to the country, the world,” though he’s still reliant on “his primary constituency, which is great wealth and corporate power,” Chomsky said.

The administration has “no coordinated plan” for addressing the pandemic, meaning the nation will see “a lot more” deaths from Covid-19 on top of the nearly 100,000 confirmed fatalities that have already occurred, he added.

Setting the stage for the current situation is that Trump kicked off his administration by moving to take apart “the entire pandemic prevention machinery,” including by “canceling programs that were working with Chinese scientists to identify potential viruses,” Chomsky said.

Another contributing factor to the flawed response, said Chomsky, is that the nation is “in the stranglehold of private control,” an example of which is the lack of a national single-payer healthcare system. “It’s the ultimate neoliberal system, actually,” he said.

While Chomsky predicted a recovery from the pandemic will come eventually and “at severe cost,” the same cannot be said of the climate crisis. “There isn’t going to be any recovery from the melting of the polar ice caps and the rising of sea levels,” he warned.

Chomsky’s fresh comments to AFP follow similarly scathing recent rebukes of the Trump administration.

In an interview earlier this month with the Guardian, Chomsky was asked if Trump was “culpable in deaths of Americans.”

“Yes,” responded, “but it’s much worse than that, because the same is true internationally. To try and cover up his criminal attacks against the American people, which have been going on all of this time, he’s flailing about to try and find scapegoats.”

Chomsky also recently took aim at Trump’s policies that are worsening the climate crisis, telling Canada’s National Observer last month that the U.S. president “wants to destroy the prospects for all organized human life. And in the near future. That’s what it means to maximize the use of fossil fuels, to cut regulations that might diminish or restrict that danger.”

But as bad as Trump is, Chomsky noted that the groundwork was laid well before the failed business owner walked into the Oval Office. In an April interview with Democracy Now!, Chomsky said:

Trump is taking a failing, lethal system and turning it into a monstrosity, but the roots were before him. Just think back to the reason why the pandemic occurred in the first place. Drug companies are following capitalist logic. They don’t want to do anything. The neoliberal hammer says the government can’t do anything the way it did in the past. You’re caught in a vise. Then comes along Trump and makes it incomparably worse. But the roots of the crisis are pre-Trump.

The same with the healthcare system. Like we know that—everyone knows—they should know the basic facts. It’s an international scandal: twice the costs of comparable countries, some of the worst outcomes. The costs were recently estimated by a study in The Lancet, one of the world’s leading medical journals. They estimated that the costs, the annual—annual costs to Americans are close to half a trillion dollars and 68,000 lives lost. That’s not so small.

Going forward, Chomsky suggested there are lessons to be learned from the coronavirus crisis.

“One lesson is that it’s another colossal failure of the neoliberal version of capitalism. Massive failure,” Chomsky told Efe last month.

“If we don’t learn that lesson,” he said, “it’s going to recur worse next time.”

Lahoud tells: This is what happened in the 1993 battle to settle scores

Posted by: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr

President General Emile Lahoud stressed that “the most important issue regarding Hezbollah is not mentioned by anyone who wrote the history of the party until now, and it was not mentioned in any article or media view,

Where is the fundamental shift in the strength of the resistance? Since history indicates the future, the new generation must know what happened in the battle to settle scores in 1993.

He said: “After an operation by the resistance, the Israeli enemy began attacking Lebanon for a week. During this time, Lebanese Prime Minister Rafic Hariri, as is his habit when he feels danger, and throughout the period of the aggression, lived in his home in Damascus.

Upon the end of the aggression, Hariri returned to Beirut and sent my request in haste, saying: “Finally, the Syrian state was convinced to strike Hezbollah, and I am bringing you a message from the Syrian leadership to strike Hezbollah tomorrow morning, and you are not responsible because a decision by the Security Council will be issued in the evening for the emergency forces to walk In front of you and they clean the south of Hezbollah, and the Lebanese army receives the weapon that the emergency forces confiscate from Hezbollah, and on your way you burn any gunman that appears with a flamethrower, and also get rid of the Popular Front in Naameh with a flamethrower. “

Heading to General Lahoud, Hariri added that today, as the commander of the army: tomorrow morning at ten o’clock, a meeting of the Supreme Council of Defense will take place, and you will be present and a decision will be issued to hit the militants, that is, Hezbollah. Since you succeeded in leading the army, and when you do this, you will be elected president of the republic in the year 1995 ″.

Lahoud added: “My immediate answer was then: my conscience does not allow me to strike Lebanese who want to return to their homes and Israel occupies their land. Hariri replied: If you want to be sure, check with the Syrian Chief of Staff, and he confirms this to you. Then my answer was: Search for someone else, and Hariri added: Tomorrow, a new army commander will be appointed as someone else.

He continued: “At twelve o’clock in the night from the same time Beirut time, it was five in the afternoon New York time, Prime Minister Hariri contacted me and informed me of a resolution in the UN Security Council,

He said: Secretary General Boutros Ghali is with me on the line and he wants to speak with you, so my answer was: I told you that I will not perform and I do not want to speak to Ghali. Al-Hariri said: Tomorrow the meeting of the Supreme Council of Defense, and you are obliged to attend.

I answered: I will not attend the meeting because I am not obliged to attend because, when the decision is issued, I will not be the commander of the army.

The next morning, when I came to my office, I was surprised that the commander of the international forces met with his staff with director of intelligence Michel Rahbani and first assistant Jamil al-Sayyid, and they were waiting for me and they prepared a map that explains how the international emergency forces will implement the decision in coordination with the Lebanese army,

The commander of the international forces told me that since we have no time and the decision will be issued at ten in the Supreme Defense Council, we will explain to you how we will carry out the operation, so I told him that I informed the prime minister that I will not implement and therefore they waited until a new army commander was appointed then explain to him how to implement,

Fifteen minutes later, in the presence of everyone, the Lebanese Minister of Foreign Affairs called me and spoke to me through a speakerphone, saying: The decision was taken and you have to go with the emergency forces and dispose of the militants with the missiles,

I replied: Why are you the Foreign Minister who speaks to me and not the Minister of Defense, is he afraid? He replied, “I will give you the Minister of Defense to give you the order. I replied: I do not have to be wrong with you, I left the army, and I got out of my office.”

Lahoud pointed out that “Brigadier Jamil al-Sayyid, who had been in contact with the Syrians, called me after four hours and told me not to resign from the army command, because President Hafez al-Assad wants to know me.

After two days, the Syrian leadership greeted me at the border and accompanied me to visit the monument of the unknown soldier, followed by a military parade held on my honor and lunch with General Hikmat al-Shihabi and the Syrian leadership and dinner with Minister Talas Ali Sharafi as well.

The next morning, President Hafez al-Assad greeted me, and it was the first time I had met him. He explained to me at length the relations between Syria and Lebanon on the basis of two states and one people, and after that he asked me: The Lebanese state, the Syrian state and the Security Council gave you an order to hit the militants and you refused?

I answered him: Allow me to explain to you my upbringing, and he said: Please, I answered: Since my birth I remember the father saying to me: Your life is nothing in front of your conscience and your honor, so I refused because if I did this thing I lose both of them together, so President Hafez al-Assad smiled and said: I did good I assigned the Lebanese file officials of the Lebanese officials mentality to understand each other. He assured me that he was not aware of the decision to hit the resistance, then the conversation touched on the father and his history.

He added: “At the time, had it not been for the presence of President Hafez al-Assad, the international forces with the Lebanese army would have ended the resistance and Hezbollah would not have been able to withstand more than two hours because it had no heavy weapons, no missiles, nor a foster environment, and also because at that time there was permanent fighting in the same family, Any movement of hope and Hezbollah. “

Lahoud concluded: “The new generations must know that if there were no leadership and men willing to die for the land, and President Hafez al-Assad’s decision to stand by the resistance, the liberation would not have occurred and Israel was in Beirut as it did in 1982. My will to the new generation, when a person is He is right, and he faces for the sake of his right, no one can overcome him, not only in resisting the Israeli enemy, but also against resisting the thief in Lebanon. ”

A Khazarian thug who ought to be hanged (Part V)

Daniel Pipes: “The MEK poses no danger to Americans or Europeans, and has not for decades. It does pose a danger to the malign, bellicose theocratic regime in Tehran.”

By: Jonas E. Alexis

Neocon hawk Daniel Pipes wrote way back in 2013: “Western governments should respond by helping the rebels to prevent Assad from crushing them.”[1]

Pipes moved on to expand and expound on his essentially diabolical thesis this way: “the West should prevent either side in the civil war from emerging victorious by helping whichever side is losing, so as to prolong their conflict.’”[2]

If you did not catch that wicked and, quite frankly, Mephistophelian ideology, here is the translation: let Assad and the Syrian terrorists fight until they destroy each other. Let them get into a cosmic fight until blood flows from all over Syria.

It doesn’t matter how long it takes or how much it would cost America and the Middle East, the West should have given its last drop of blood to support that hellish plan. Let mothers and decent civilians weep and mourn for their children and love ones and their cherished country. Pipes only cares about Israel. He perceived,

“This policy recommendation of ‘helping whichever side is losing’ sounds odd, I admit, but it is strategic.”[3]

Here Pipes’ conscience was telling him that the plan was wicked, but he seemed to have suppressed his moral and practical reasoning and replaced it with what obviously is an Israeli ideology, which states that Assad had to go by any means necessary.

What was even more interesting was that Pipes thought that the Obama administration was too slow in invading Iran.[4] You ain’t seen nothing yet. Pipes believed that Syrian refugees—people whose livelihood had been literally destroyed by the Syrian conflict—“should be allowed and encouraged to remain within their own cultural zone, where they most readily fit in, can best stay true to their traditions, least disrupt the host society, and from whence they might most easily return home.”[5]

What Daniel Pipes indirectly ended up saying was that not only Assad and the Syrian terrorists have to be sent to the Khazarian slaughterhouse, but decent refugees have to follow the same fate. Keep in mind that in Syria, more than half of the hospitals were either destroyed or damaged.[6].  So if civilians got hurt when they tried to get out of their property, they just had to die, since there were not enough medical supplies.

Put simply, Pipes is trying to simultaneously and effortlessly kill four birds (Assad, the Syrian terrorists, the Syrian civilians, and the small minority of Christians) with one Khazarian stone.  Of course, to accomplish such a feat, the Khazarian Mafia could not do it alone. They had to use a large number of the goyim and the American taxpayer’s dollars: “The U.S. military spent about $3 billion on drone programs” in 2012 alone.[7]

Pipes’ essentially Talmudic ideology was working—until Putin put a stop to it when Russia began to protect Syria and kill Pipes’ proxy wars, namely, jihadists and al-Nusra groups. During the same time, the British newspaper the Guardian declared that the Syrian rebels got a huge hit:

“Their resources are dwindling, their families are shattered. Their villages and farmlands are lost to regime militias. Their allies are at best unreliable, and at worst actively conspiring against them.”[8]

The story got even interesting when it was reported that all Syria’s neighboring countries have Syrian refugees—except Israel.[9]

This was not the first time that people like Pipes attempted to steal, kill, and destroy. The Neocon hawks did the same thing when they invaded places like Iraq, inciting extremists against Christians, which caused Christians to being “close to extinction” in the Middle East.[10] Pipes wrote in 2001:

“I worry very much, from the Jewish point of view, that the presence, and increased stature, and affluence, and enfranchisement of American Muslims, because they are so much led by an Islamist leadership, that this will present true dangers to American Jews.”[11]

Why doesn’t he argue from a universal or moral point of view? Why doesn’t he see that killing innocent lives in the Middle East is not and will never be good for Jews, Muslims, or anyone with an ounce of common sense? Why can’t Pipes see that supporting terrorist groups like the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (MEK) will inexorably lead to the conclusion that the so-called war on terror is a smokescreen?[12]

How does Pipes again defend the position that the Mujahedin is not a terrorist group? Listen to his logic here: “The MEK poses no danger to Americans or Europeans, and has not for decades. It does pose a danger to the malign, bellicose theocratic regime in Tehran.”[13]

In other words, if a terrorist organization is attacking Iran and perceived enemies of Israel, then that organization can never be a terrorist cell in the strict sense of the word. It has to be good.

So, does Daniel Pipes deserve to be prosecuted, trialed, and then hanged? In a sane society, the answer should be yes. If the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski is still behind bars for being responsible for the death of three people, what about Daniel Pipes, who is responsible for the deaths of thousands upon thousands of innocent lives? And how in the world did George W. Bush nominate Pipes for the board of the United States Institute of Peace in 2003?[14]

I guess one must say that birds of the same feather flock together.
