UK must work with Assad to fight ISIL: Ex-general

Syrian tribal chiefs on election day...Jim W. Dean

Syrian tribal chiefs on election day…Jim W. Dean

[ Editors Note:  Pray that his could grow into a bridge to begin stopping the stupid war on Syria that has been a disaster for all involved except for those running the proxy terror orgs in large formations.

Yes, I wish these people like the general would say something about going after those in government and the think tanks for using terrorists in destabilization projects...but we take what they give us and build on that.

The opening for us here is two fold, to not get sucked up into the anti-ISIS Jihad the spinmeisters will crank up now.

We have to launch a dual effort to go after anyone claiming to be going after ISIS who does not show any interest in going after the Western and Gulf countries that have funded them, and as I type are giving them logistics support. They should hear from us that we know they are still running a smokescreen for the real terrorists to hide behind.

They don't think we are smart enough or have the pushback stamina to get that into their faces, and maybe they are right. But if we want people on the sidelines to get in the fight we have to show them how to do it by leading by example... Jim W. Dean ]

UK’s former army chief, Richard Dannatt, says Britain must cooperate with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to combat the ISIL Takfiri group.

Dannatt, Britain’s former chief of general staff, said on Friday that a conversation had to be held with Assad regarding fighting the terrorist group.

“I think whether it is above the counter or below the counter, a conversation has got to be held with [Assad] because, if there is any question of airstrikes over Syria, it has got to be with…Assad’s…approval,” said Dannatt.

The appeal comes as Britain is openly supporting militant groups in Syria to help topple the Syrian president’s government.

Dannatt also said the “time will come” when Prime Minister David Cameron’s government decides that British military planes should conduct airstrikes against the terrorist group.

“I think the time will come when we will decide that our Tornado jets operating in the region won’t just take photographs and produce intelligence,” said Dannatt.

The former army chief, furthermore, said more British special forces may be needed to be deployed to Iraq to train Kurdish troops, who are fighting the ISIL militants.

Dannatt’s comments came a day after US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey said the ISIL militants cannot be defeated unless the US or its allies attack them in Syria. The US military has conducted numerous airstrikes against the ISIL militants in Iraq since President Barack Obama authorized the bombings earlier this month.

The ISIL terrorists currently control parts of Syria and Iraq’s northern and western regions, where they have been committing heinous crimes, including the mass execution of civilians and Iraqi security forces.

By LEON WATSON FOR MAILONLINE

Hate preacher Abu Hamza’s most trusted lieutenant will be kicked out of Britain to face terror charges in America, it was revealed today.

Following a High Court hearing in London judges have given Home Secretary Theresa May the go ahead to extradite mentally-ill Broadmoor patient Haroon Aswat.

European judges had ruled last year that the 34-year-old terror suspect, from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, could not be deported because it would be bad for his mental health.

He said if extradited and convicted he would be at risk of ill-treatment inside the so-called supermax prison ADX Florence, in Colorado.

The prison, which is surrounded by desert, and known as the ‘Alcatraz of the Rockies’ and is home to 400 of America’s most dangerous convicts, where they live in a cramped cell measuring 12ft by 7ft.

Hamza and four other terror suspects were extradited two years ago after the European Court of Human Rights rejected their appeal against the move.

Hamza, Babar Ahmad, Seyla Talha Ahsan, Adel Abdul Bary and Khaled Al-Fawwaz were all then removed from the country. 

But Aswat’s case was adjourned to allow judges more time to consider his mental health. 

Mr Justice Mitting, sitting at the High Court with The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas, found there was 'no risk at all' of inhuman treatment in the U.S.

Mr Justice Mitting, sitting at the High Court with The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas, found there was ‘no risk at all’ of inhuman treatment in the U.S.

Claim: Aswat had claimed up to 50 years without parole in the Supermax jail in Florence, Colorado - the Alcatraz of the Rockies - would breach his human rights

Claim: Aswat had claimed up to 50 years without parole in the Supermax jail in Florence, Colorado – the Alcatraz of the Rockies – would breach his human rights

Today, Mr Justice Mitting, sitting at the High Court with The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas, found there was ‘no risk at all’ of inhuman treatment in the U.S.

The pair dismissed Aswat’s bid to delay extradition.

Aswat, who was born in Batley, West Yorkshire, now faces imminent removal to the USA and a three week trial for terror offences.

He was transferred from prison to Broadmoor in 2008 suffering with paranoid schizophrenia. 

Hamza, who was serving a seven-year sentence in Britain for soliciting to murder and inciting racial hatred when he was extradited, has denied 11 counts of criminal conduct related to the taking of 16 hostages in Yemen in 1998 and advocating violent jihad in Afghanistan in 2001.

He is also accused of conspiring to establish the Oregon-based jihad training camp between June 2000 and December 2001.

Home Office officials said later that the case could yet be heard by the Supreme Court.

They said pending any Supreme Court application by Aswat’s lawyers, extradition arrangements would be made.

‘We are pleased the court has upheld the Home Secretary’s decision to extradite Haroon Aswat to the United States,’ said a Home Office spokesman.

‘The court agreed that the American authorities had provided sufficient assurances over the conditions in which Aswat would be held in the U.S.

‘Aswat’s legal team has been given an opportunity to seek leave to appeal to the Supreme Court. Subject to any application, arrangements will now be made for his extradition.’

‘Two British human rights researchers probing mistreatment of Qatar World Cup migrant workers disappear ‘after being followed by plain clothes police

NOVANEWS

 

  • Britons were due to fly from Doha to London when they disappeared 
  • Their employer claims the two had been ‘harassed’ and followed by police
  • Krishna Upadhyaya and Ghimire Gundev failed to arrive at the airport
  • Human rights group claims the pair feared they were ‘in danger’

By COREY CHARLTON FOR MAILONLINE

Two British researchers have ‘disappeared’ in Qatar after being harassed and followed by plain clothes police, according to a human rights group.

Researcher Krishna Upadhyaya, 52, and photographer Ghimire Gundev, 36, from London, were due to fly from Doha to London on Sunday but failed to arrive at the airport.

The Global Network for Rights and Development (GNRD) said the pair – who had been looking in to reports of poor treatment of Nepalese migrant workers as Qatar prepares to stage the football World Cup in 2022 – had ‘feared they might be in danger’ after being harassed by police and had decided to leave the country when they disappeared.

The Foreign Office said it is aware of reports of one missing British national.

A statement from GNRD, based in Norway, said it ‘holds Qatari authorities responsible for the security and safety of its kidnapped employees’.

Ala Abu Dakka, a programme manager at the NGO, said staff were working tirelessly to locate the pair.

‘It has been four days now and we are still putting pressure on the Qatari authorities to disclose where they are,’ he said.

‘We do believe that they have an idea of where they are because they were being followed by plain clothes police.

‘They were being harassed by police before they disappeared. They were very worried and feared they might be in danger.

‘We told them to leave Qatar for their safety to avoid the situation we have now. They were due to fly to London and on to Norway.

‘We are very concerned about their welfare. We think they are being investigated in unknown circumstances.’

The pair arrived in the country on August 27 and were due to stay up to one week but reported their fears on Saturday.

Mr Gundev’s family in both Nepal and Europe called for the immediate release of the ‘loving father of two’.

In a statement they said: ‘He is a kind-hearted man who is always interested in helping the disabled and poor.

‘He is indirectly or directly involved personally in many social-welfare works in Nepal helping people understand their human rights.’

GNRD said it is prepared to take legal action against Qatari authorities.

Contaminated burgers made in Poland for UK supermarkets contained horse and beef ‘offcuts’ for up to a year

NOVANEWS

Tesco Everyday Value beefburgers were removed after it was discovered they contained horse meat

  • Tesco Everyday Value beefburgers were removed after it was discovered they contained horse meat
  • Contaminated meat was in blocks of frozen product from a Polish supplier, FSA said
  • Tesco vows to introduce a DNA testing system on meat products to ‘ensure the quality’ of the food
  • Supermarket drops frozen burger supplier following a ‘breach of trust’
  • MPs welcome DNA testing and praised Tesco’s ‘innovation’

By ANNA EDWARDS

A mixture of beef and horse offcuts found in contaminated burgers sold in supermarkets could have been used for a year, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said today.

The contaminated meat was in the form of blocks of frozen product from a Polish supplier which had been used for a year, FSA chief executive Catherine Brown told the Commons Environment Committee.

Investigations are going on into how long contaminated meat might have been in use, Ms Brown told MPs.

Burgers were pulled off the shelves at Tesco

Burgers were pulled off the shelves at Tesco after the supermarket discovered that there were traces of horse meat in their products

Asked how UK consumers could know if horse meat had not been in burgers ‘for months, if not years’, Ms Brown replied: ‘We haven’t (in the past) identified horsemeat in burgers as a likely significant risk in this country, and therefore it is possible… and that’s why I’m saying that it’s very important now that we get to the bottom of the Polish connection and the Irish investigation because it is possible that these burgers have been on sale in this country.

‘The probable limit of possibility… is a year because it’s been a year that this supplier has been supplying.

‘And therefore when the Polish get to the bottom of this we will hope to know whether it’s likely that this has been going on for a year.’

Meat in Tesco burgers which was found to contain horse DNA did not come from a list of approved suppliers, the supermarket also admitted today.

The meat also came from outside the UK or Ireland, which was contrary to the supermarket’s policy.

The supermarket has now dropped its frozen burger supplier, Silvercrest, following what it termed a ‘breach of trust’.

It has vowed to introduce a DNA testing system on meat products to ‘ensure the quality’ of the food on its shelves in the wake of the scandal that has disgusted customers.

It said: ‘We now understand – with as much certainty as possible – what happened.

‘The evidence tells us that our frozen burger supplier, Silvercrest, used meat in our products that did not come from the list of approved suppliers we gave them.

‘Nor was the meat from the UK or Ireland, despite our instruction that only beef from the UK and Ireland should be used in our frozen beefburgers.

‘Consequently we have decided not to take products from that supplier in future. We took that decision with regret but the breach of trust is simply too great.’

Tesco was forced to issue a public apology earlier this month after tests in Ireland discovered traces of horse meat in three frozen beefburger lines.

The findings sparked a national outcry and 10 million burgers were pulled from shelves as a result of the scandal.

The supermarket launched an investigation into how the meat ended up in stores in the UK and Ireland on January 16.

Silvercrest

Dropped: Tesco says it has dropped supplier Silvercrest Foods after the ‘breach of trust’

Today it promised to set a ‘new standard’ with the introduction of a testing system designed to detect ‘any deviation from our high standards’.

It issued a statement saying: ‘We made a commitment to customers to investigate thoroughly and share the findings with them. Since then, we have been working hard to understand what happened and how we can stop it ever happening again.’

It added: ‘Ultimately Tesco is responsible for the food we sell, so it is not enough just to stop using the supplier.

‘We have a well-equipped, expert technical team and world-class checks in place but we will not take anything for granted after this incident.

‘It has shown that, in spite of our stringent tests, checks and controls there remained a small possibility that something could go wrong and it did. We want to stop it ever happening again, so we are taking action to reduce that possibility still further.

‘To underpin the strong measures already in place, we will now introduce a comprehensive system of DNA testing across our meat products. This will identify any deviation from our high standards.

‘These checks will set a new standard.

‘It will be a significant investment for Tesco, borne by Tesco. We want to leave customers in no doubt that we will do whatever it takes to ensure the quality of their food and that the food they buy is exactly what the label says it is.’

The controversy surrounding Tesco extended to Dunnes Stores, Lidl, Aldi and Iceland after some of their products were also found to contain low levels of horse DNA.

The furore deepened further last week when it emerged a potentially carcinogenic drug may have entered the food chain following the slaughter of horses in the UK.

Shadow environment secretary Mary Creagh told the Commons that some of these animals tested positive for the carcinogen phenylbutazone, commonly known as bute.

She said: ‘I am in receipt of evidence showing that several horses slaughtered in UK abattoirs last year tested positive for phenylbutazone, or bute, a drug which causes cancer in humans and is banned from the human food chain.

‘It is possible that those animals entered the human food chain.’

The Commons Environment Committee is due to take evidence on the contamination of beef products with horse meat later today.

Food which tested positive was found to have been produced by Liffey Meats and Silvercrest Foods in Ireland and the UK plant, Dalepak Hambleton.

A statement released earlier this week by ABP Food Group, which owns Silvercrest, issued an apology and said they had appointed a new management team at the supplier and they will also introduce new DNA tests.

Paul Finnerty, Group Chief Executive, ABP Food Group said: ‘This has been a very difficult experience for all involved and has led to a significant interruption in business for Silvercrest and its customers. We are relieved that the source of the problem has been identified.’

‘While the company has never knowingly purchased or traded in equine product, I wish to take this opportunity to apologise for the impact this issue has caused.’

‘As previously stated the company has never knowingly bought or processed horse meat and all of our purchases are from approved and licensed EU plants.’

Tesco has won praise from the Government and MPs after announcing it would step up its food tracing procedures in the wake of the discovery of horse meat in beef burgers.

Environment minister David Heath said he ‘welcomed’ the supermarket’s announcement, which also won praise from shadow minister Huw Irranca-Davies.

Mr Irranca-Davies also welcomed the move towards DNA testing, which Labour has called on the Government to instigate.

He told MPs: ‘It is a welcome innovation, it is what we should be seeing more of, it’s what the NFU and others are calling for more of and it shows the extent to which we now need to be far more rigorous than we used to.

‘It’s not the same world it was 20 years ago.’

Mr Irranca-Davies said increased globalisation in meat supply had reinforced the need for more stringent checks on meat products.

And he pressed the minister to also update MPs on how horse meat was checked for medical contamination, after evidence emerged horse meat may have entered the food chain after testing positive for phenylbutazone, or bute.

But Mr Heath said sampling and results for bute can take up to three weeks – meaning it’s ‘entirely possible’ that in that time the meat could be taken abroad and consumed.

He did say the Food Standards Agency are investigating the bute claims and will take action if necessary.

Burger King admits it has been selling beef burgers and Whoppers containing horsemeat

NOVANEWS

  • Fast food chain has faced allegations of orchestrating a cover-up
  • Fast food chain had earlier assured its products were not involved
  • Processing company Silvercrest has been using non-approved ingredients
  • Aldi today admitted burgers sold through UK stores probably contaminated

By SEAN POULTER

Burger King has tonight admitted that it has been selling burgers and Whoppers containing horsemeat despite two weeks of denials.

The fast food chain, which has more than 500 UK outlets, had earlier given a series of ‘absolute assurances’ that its products were not involved.

However, new tests have revealed these guarantees were incorrect in a revelation that threatens to destroy the trust of customers.

Burger King has faced allegations of orchestrating a cover-up of its links to the horsemeat scandal in order to give it time to find an alternative supplier. It has admitted selling burgers containing horsemeat

It also raises serious questions about whether the food company, which sells around one million burgers a week in the UK, has any good idea about what goes into its products.

The contaminated burgers were made by the Irish-based processing company, Silvercrest, which is part the ABP Foods Group.

The same company also made tainted burgers for Tesco, Asda and the Co-op, among others.

Burger King has faced allegations of orchestrating a cover-up of its links to the horsemeat scandal in order to give it time to find an alternative supplier.

It is currently shipping in tens of thousands of burgers from suppliers in Germany and Italy in order to meet demand at its UK outlets.

It is known that the management at Silvercrest has been using a series of non-approved ingredients in their burgers for a range of household name brands.

These included meat off-cuts, including horse, that were imported in large frozen blocks from Poland.

The contamination has been going on since at least last May and potentially for up to one year, according to evidence presented to MPs earlier this week.

Tonight Burger King abandoned its earlier denials, saying: ‘Four samples recently taken from the Silvercrest plant have shown the presence of very small trace levels of equine DNA.

Burger King is currently shipping in tens of thousands of burgers from suppliers in Germany and Italy in order to meet demand at its UK outlets

‘Within the last 36 hours, we have established that Silvercrest used a small percentage of beef imported from a non-approved supplier in Poland.

‘They promised to deliver 100per cent British & Irish beef patties and have not done so. This is a clear violation of our specifications, and we have terminated our relationship with them. 

‘Through our investigation, we have confirmed that this non-approved Polish supplier is the same company identified by the Irish Department of Agriculture as the source of Silvercrest’s contamination issue.’

'We are deeply troubled by the findings of our investigation and apologise to our guests,who trust us to source only the highest quality 100per cent beef burgers.'

- Burger King vice president

The contamination scandal was first triggered two weeks ago, with the Food Safety Authority of Ireland revealed it had found horse meat in burgers sold in Ireland and the UK.

When the news first emerged, Burger King said it had been given an ‘absolute assurance’ by its supplier that its products were not involved.

Yesterday, Burger King vice president, Diego Beamonte, said: ‘We are deeply troubled by the findings of our investigation and apologise to our guests, who trust us to source only the highest quality 100per cent beef burgers.

‘Our supplier has failed us and in turn we have failed you. We are committed to ensuring that this does not happen again.’

He added: ‘We will dedicate ourselves to determining what lessons can be learned and what additional measures, including DNA testing and enhanced traceability controls, can be taken to ensure that we continue to provide you with the quality products you expect from us.’

Jeanette Longfield, of the campaigning food and health group, Sustain, has condemned Burger King’s handling of the problem.

Burgers were pulled off the shelves at Tesco after the supermarket discovered that there were traces of horse meat in their products

‘Burger King’s approach has been very shabby,’ she said.

‘It really is not the open, honest and transparent way that we expect a major food company to treats its customers.’

Earlier today, Aldi admitted for the first time that burgers sold through its UK stores were also probably contaminated with traces of horse meat.

Its burgers were made by a British supplier, Dalepak, which is based in Richmond, north Yorkshire.

The same company manufactures burgers for Iceland, which has also admitted to finding horse meat in products sold to families in this country.

Tesco Everyday Value beefburgers that were removed from shelves at Tesco after they were found to contain 29 per cent horse meat

Dalepak also makes burgers for Waitrose and Sainsbury’s, which both insist that their burgers are clear of contamination.

The processing company is a subsidiary of the Irish company, ABP Food Group, which also owns a second burger manufacturing business, which is Silvercrest, in southern Ireland.

Aldi said a sample of its frozen Oakhurst Beefburgers showed up positive for 0.1per cent horse DNA, while its Oakhurst Beef Quarter Pounders were 0.1per cent equine and 0.1per cent pork.

The company withdrew all of its frozen burgers from UK stores when the scandal first erupted two weeks ago as a precaution.

Silvercrest used a small percentage of beef imported from a non-approved supplier in Poland

A spokesman said: ‘Customers are our absolute priority. This is why we immediately withdrew these products until such a time that we could verify that there was no risk to our customers.

‘We are deeply angry and feel let down by our supplier and we are pursuing more tests until we are certain that we understand how the production line was contaminated.

‘Aldi requires rigorous verification and quality control procedures and we cannot allow our quality commitment to our customers to be compromised.

‘We will continue to maintain active scrutiny across our supply lines, and we assure our customers their health and safety is our number one priority.’

What if a UK politician had been attacked by a pro-Palestinian fanatic?

NOVANEWS

Writing in the Daily Telegraph’s blog, Peter Oborne, the Telegraph’s chief political commentator, says:

Last Friday evening [29 August] a British MP suffered a vicious assault on a London street. George Galloway, a 61-year-old, six-times-elected politician was beaten up for three minutes by a brutal and determined assailant in broad daylight, and was admitted to hospital as a result.

There are grounds for assuming that the motive was political, and the assault occurred due to Galloway’s criticism of Israeli actions in the Middle East. The assailant was reportedly shouting comparing Galloway to Hitler, and shouting about the holocaust.

There is something very disturbing about the response to this event by the mainstream British political establishment. Mr Galloway has received no public message of sympathy from a single MP from any party – nothing from Speaker Bercow, from the prime minister, or from any of the other elected political leader.

I know that Mr Galloway is a very controversial figure and that many people, for honourable reasons, disagree very strongly with his views. Yet that is irrelevant. The attack on Mr Galloway is beyond doubt an attack on British democracy itself.

It is a basic principle of our political culture that men and women must be able to speak up for the causes they believe in without threats or violent reappraisal…

Had an MP been attacked by some pro-Palestinian fanatic for his support of Israel, I guess there would have been a national outcry and rightly so. Why then the silence from the mainstream establishment following this latest outrageous assault on a British politician?

But it’s not just the British politicians who, through their silence over the attack on Galloway, are complicit in the destruction of British democracy on behalf of Israel.

The media, and in particular Britain’s state-owned public broadcaster, the BBC, are just as guilty. As the journalist Jonathan Cook says on his Facebook page:

British MP George Galloway was seriously assaulted on a London street a few days ago by a fanatical supporter of Israel and its army. The British media and political class have evinced almost zero interest in this incident, despite its being a rare and worrying attack on the very foundations of a democratic polity. Perversely, we have to turn to [the Russian English-language TV channel] RT to learn from Galloway what happened. This is an interview that should have been on the BBC or Channel 4.

Wake up UK: Abuse Cases in British City Long Ignored

NOVANEWS

AFP Photo / Carl Court

A report released on [August 26] on accusations of widespread sexual abuse in the northern England city of Rotherham found that about 1,400 minors — some as young as 11 years old — were beaten, raped and trafficked from 1997 to 2013 as the local authorities ignored a series of red flags. Some children were doused in gasoline and threatened with being set on fire if they reported their abusers. Others were forced to watch rapes and threatened with the same fate. In more than a third of the cases, the victims appear to have been known to child protection agencies, but the police and local government officials failed to act. Within hours of the report’s publication, [Roger Stone, the leader of the Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council since 2003,] resigned. It was not until 2010 that the first case of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham, a South Yorkshire city of about 250,000 people, made it to court. Five men received long prison sentences for grooming three teenage girls for sex. It was one of several high-profile prosecutions over the past four years that revealed sexual exploitation in cities including Oxford, Rochdale and Derby. Alexis Jay, the author of the report and a former chief inspector of social work, said that vulnerable girls as young as 11 and largely from disadvantaged backgrounds had been brutalized by groups of men. “They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten and intimidated,” she wrote. The report described the failures of the political and police leadership as blatant.

Note: Further information is available in this story in the UK’s Guardian. For more on this, see concise summaries of deeply revealing sexual abuse scandals news articles from reliable major media sources.
