President Abbas to Attend Zionist Peres’s Funeral

Celebrations in Abbastan and Hamastan (Edited)

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas will attend the funeral of the ex-president of the Zionist entity and war criminal Shimon Peres, Palestinian officials told AFP on Thursday, in what will be a rare visit to Jerusalem.
Several Palestinian officials confirmed his participation in Friday’s funeral on condition of anonymity. An Israeli defense ministry unit also said Abbas had asked for it to coordinate his participation.

It is worth noting that Peres was responsible for scores of war crimes committed by the Zionist entity against the Lebanese and Palestinian civilians throughout the past decades.

Bahrain FM pays tribute to Peres: ‘Man of War”

(AFP) Bahrain’s foreign minister paid tribute to ex-Israeli president Shimon Peres on Thursday, in a surprise statement that drew strong Arab criticism on social media.
“Rest in Peace President Shimon Peres, a Man of War and a Man of the still elusive Peace in the Middle East,” Sheikh Khaled bin Ahmed al-Khalifa said on Twitter.
The response to his tweet was swift.
Like most Arab countries, Bahrain does not have diplomatic relations with Israel, and many Arabs associate Peres with the successive wars that have rocked the Middle East rather than the Oslo accords with the Palestinians that earned him the Nobel Peace Prize.
“The foreign minister is paying tribute and praying for the Zionist terrorist and the killer of children,” complained former opposition lawmaker Jalal Fairooz.
Another critic, Khalil Buhazaa, tweeted: “Diplomacy does not mean rudeness.”
Peres died on Wednesday aged 93 after suffering a major stroke.
Although he is known to the west for winning Nobel Peace Prize in 1994, Peres is well-remembered as the man who ordered the devastating “Grapes of Wrath” operation against Lebanon in 1996, which left 175 people dead.
He was also seen as a driving force in the development of Israel’s undeclared nuclear program.

العرب يتسابقون لـ «تحية روح بيريز» وبعض اللبنانيين يشيدون

روزانا رمَّال

سمحت سخرية القدر لرئيس السلطة الفلسطينية محمود عباس بـ «فرصة» الحصول على تصريح بالدخول الى القدس المحتلة لحضور جنازة الرئيس «الإسرائيلي» السابق شيمون بيريز، بعدما درس رئيس وزراء الاحتلال بنيامين نتنياهو الموافقة على طلبه ووافق!

يدخل الرئيس محمود عباس بسلام أرض بلاده المسلوبة في القدس حيث «العاصمة اليهودية المنشودة»، والتي كلفت «إسرائيل» حروباً وغزوات «أصيلة ووكيلة» لتبصر النور ولا تزال تلوح في أفق الشرق الأوسط نيات تكريسها منذ لحظة السعي الى إنشاء دويلة كردية وتقسيم سورية. وهو المشروع الذي يجابَه اليوم بأيدٍ من حديد من قبل اولئك المقاتلين أنفسهم الذين قاتلوا «إسرائيل» أيضاً في جنوب لبنان.

الأمعاء الخاوية التي ترفع الهامات والرؤوس وتشمخ فيها الجبهات التي انتصرت على إنسانية المحاضرين بها من وراء قضبان سجون الاحتلال والتي قدمت فلسطين على منابر السلام واجهة الإنسان وقبلة للعالم لم تكف محمود عباس للتخلي عن المجاملات البروتوكولية التي لا تجدي مع هذا العدو وآخرها بطولة الاسير مالك القاضي الذي أفرج الاحتلال عنه بانتصاره على الموت ومضرباً عن الطعام ومحتجاً على القهر والظلم. لم يكف الرئيس عباس أن هذه الأيام تصدف فيها مناسبة الذكرى الـ16 لانطلاق الانتفاضة الثانية انتفاضة الأقصى التي بدأت يوم 28-9-2000 في ساحات الأقصى.. لم تفلح مناشدات محمد الدرة في حضن والده، ولا صرخات الامهات المستغيثات بالقول بإفهام عباس أنه سيفتح الباب لكل الراغبين سراً بالمشاركة بدفن الميت بالمجاهرة والمشاركة معاً.

يتقاطر العالم ليسجل موقفاً للصهيونية العالمية في مثل هذه المحافل، وتقف ايران متفرجة على عدد المتضامنين والذين عبّروا عن حزنهم الشديد من عرب وخليجيين وتدرك أنها هي «السبب».

الموقف الإيراني المؤيد للمقاومة والصعود العلمي والتكنولوجي والعسكري جعلها بالغنى عن التزلف والتودّد لنيل رضا الغرب وجعل جيرانها يلجأون «للشيطان».

تنظر سورية إلى ما يجري… تسأل كيف يتوحّد العرب الذين Arab League appeals to int'l community to protect J'lem and Aqsa Mosque، ووقفوا بالدور بين حكام وملوك ورؤساء وممثلين عنهم للمشاركة بوداع الطاغية.

تناشد القوى الفلسطينية «المقاومة» رئيس السلطة الفلسطينية حفظ ما تبقى من ماء «وجهها ووجهه» وترجوه ألا يحضر وها هي كلّ من «حماس» والجبهة الشعبية لتحرير فلسطين، تدعوانه للتراجع عن المشاركة في الجنازة اليوم. تناشد حماس عباس التخلّي عن قراره بتشييع المجرم بيريز، حسب ما قالت، وتنبّهه أنّ مشاركة «الرئيس الرمز» «توفر غطاءً للأطراف الأخرى بالهرولة السياسية وتمثل تشجيعاً لهم للتطبيع مع «إسرائيل».

لم تخطئ حماس في هذا فها هي الأغطية تتوزع والتصريحات تظهر الى العلن..

وزير خارجية البحرين خالد بن أحمد يقول للميت «ارقد بسلام يا بيريز» الرجل نفسه يصف السيد حسن نصرالله بـ Image result for ‫ارقد بسلام يا بيريز‬‎«إرهابي» ويلاحق اللبنانيين على اراضي بلاده، يصنف المحتل داعية «سلام» ويكاد يبدو من أصحاب العزاء، فتصريحاته بقيت تتوالى وآخرها: «أيها الرئيس شمعون بيريز، يا رجل الحرب ورجل السلام الذي لا يزال صعب المنال بالشرق الأوسط»..

قد يكون المشهد إيجابياً لدرجة وضوح الأمور وانبلاجها، الخليج طبّع مع «إسرائيل» علناً وانتهى الأمر!

الذي كان خافياً بكتمان السرّ كالمملكة العربية السعودية بات علنياً، لم تشرح الرياض معنى لقاءات تركي الفيصل بالصهاينة حتى الساعة.. ولم توضح فحوى المشاهد التي تناقلها الإعلام لرجل الأمن السعودي انور عشقي بين «الإسرائيليين»..

قطر ستلبّي «الواجب» كالعادة ويحضر الجهاز الحاكم.. المغرب سيرسل أندريه أزولاي أحد مستشاري الملك محمد السادس للجنازة.

«القناة العاشرة» العبرية نقلت عن مصادر «إسرائيلية» وجود «اتصالات مع دول من الخليج العربي بينها سلطنة عُمان التي قد تحضر الجنازة بدورها، ورجحت مصادر صحافية «إسرائيلية» حضور الرئيس المصري عبد الفتاح السيسي والملك الأردني عبدالله الثاني.

يراقب الإعلام المصري المشهد ويتكتم إعلام قصر عبد الفتاح السيسي عن البوح بالحقيقة، فلا يؤكد ولا ينفي مشاركته، فالرئيس المصري لا يزال في حيرة من أمره، هل يحضر شخصياً أو يكتفي بإرسال سامح شكري وزير خارجيته؟ يبدو السيسي متحفظاً أكثر عن الإعلان عن تحركاته في الآونة الأخيرة بعد تهديدات تعرّض لها.. عله يفاجئ الكاميرات اليوم!

لا يغيب بعض اللبنانيين عن الحدث ولا يوفر بعضهم جهداً بالظهور بمواقف «معيبة» بحق بلد سجل أول انتصارات العرب على «إسرائيل»، فيضعون حساباتهم الشخصية والتاريخية ويطلقون مواقف قياساً لخلفيات لا تمتّ للقضية بصلة، فيصبح خصوم حزب الله وسورية منظّرين لفلسفة حرية التعبير وموزعين شهادات حسن سلوك ولياقات، وكأنهم خريجو أعرق مدارس الديبلوماسية والسياسة الدولية، اللبناني «السيّئ الحظ» هنا فارس سعيد أول المبادرين لتحية عباس الذي يطالبه الفلسطينيون بالرجوع عن قراره..

فلينم الفلسطينيون قريري العين وليفتخروا، لقد اعتبر فارس سعيد موقف رئيسهم شجاعاً ويدلّ على حنكة سياسية.

غاب عن سعيد أنّ مَن يحيي «الشجاعة» كفضيلة، يسوّق لها قاصداً او غافلاً.. غاب عنه أيضاً أنّ مجرد التفكير بالفرضية هو جهوزية لقبولها وبداية انفكاك تلك العقدة المتينة التي تربط «إسرائيل» بالإرهاب واعتبارها مباحة بين الاعداء وتذاكياً..

غاب عنه أيضاً أن تأييد «الخطأ» لن يتحوّل وجهة نظر أبداً…

Turkey’s “Illegal Invasion” of Syria: Operation “Euphrates Shield” Turns Into Operation “Occupation”

Turkish President Erdogan in USA
Turkey’s operation ‘Euphrates Shield’ that had originally begun as the operation to drive the Kurdish militias back to the eastern side of Euphrates River is now turning into a mission to create a ‘safe zone’ inside Syria to reinforce not only its own position in the region but also to buttress the Turkey-backed militias controlling the eastern part of Aleppo city.
The decision has come at a time when US-Russia sponsored ceasefire has failed to hold and when battles on various fronts have once again escalated to the point of extremely heightened confrontation. This particular course of action is likely to put Turkey back on confrontation course with Syria and Russia and pave the way for the NATO forces’ direct entry in the conflict. Some recent most developments strongly indicate that things are now turning to this direction.
President Recep Erdogan redefined the scope of ‘Euphrates Shield’ in a major statement on Monday, September 19. Having first taken over the Syrian border towns of Jarablus al-Rab, Turkish troops are “now going down as far as al-Bab”, i.e., 30 kilometres further inside the Syrian territory, as he put it. Erdogan posed the question that is on everyone’s lips: “But why are you going down there?” Then, he offered an answer himself: “We need to rid these places from being a threat to us”. Simple though it looks, Turkey’s decision indicates the critical turn the Syrian-conflict is likely to take in the months to come.
One day after Erdogan’s announcement, the Turkish government submitted a motion to the parliament for extending the mandate authorizing the Turkish Armed Forces to take military action in Syria. The proposal seeks one more year authorization for the government to carry out cross-border military operations against “terrorist threats” and allows deployment of foreign troops on Turkish territory too.
The new plan, to put is simplest terms, is to create a safe zone in Syria the size of the Grand Canyon, a campaign that could be one of the biggest foreign military interventions in its modern history. Needless to say, Erdogan’s new plan involves political and military risks. Militarily, this plan implies deployment of thousands of Turkish soldiers in Syria for years and increase risks of a possible military confrontation with Syrian forces as also with its biggest allies: Russia and Iran. Politically, it is likely to put its relations with regional and extra-regional powers on an entangled path. Already, Erdogan has largely ignored the criticism from Moscow, Tehran and Damascus that the Turkish incursion is a violation of international law and an infringement of Syria’s sovereignty (read: Erdogan outlined this plan only four days after the visit by the Russian Chief of General Staff Gen. Valery Gerasimov to Ankara on September 15).
However, it is not this side of the conflict that Erdogan is set to annoy, his drive against Kurds, many believe, is also likely to further fracture Turkey’s relations with the US. However, given the lukewarm attitude of Western powers, including the US, towards the concept of ‘safe zone’, this is least likely to happen. It is so because Erdogan seems to have anticipated that when a zone actually materializes, its raison d’etre as a strategic foothold inside Syria will at once become obvious to NATO. Hence, the September 20 motion, which is most likely to be passed by the parliament in its upcoming session, to authorize deployment of foreign (NATO/US) troops in Turkey and the related authorization to use Turkish territory as a transit route too.
Needless to say, there is no love lost between Erdogan and Kurdish militias and Turkey’s moves directly indicate that its primary motivation is to contain the Kurdish militias in a corner. In the first week of September, Turkey’s defence minister said the YPG should not be allowed to lead any operation on Raqqa and that “local forces” should be used instead. He added that Turkey would not tolerate the YPG extending their territory “by using the Daesh operations as an excuse”.
On Tuesday, September 5, Erdogan was reported to have said he and the US president Barack Obama were seeking to work together to push ISIL out of Raqqa. But like Turkey’s fight for Jarabulus and towns on the Syrian border, the battle for Raqqa carries more significance for Erdogan than the removal of ISIL, for it is mainly about limiting the gains of the YPG and expanding Turkey’s influence in Syria.
“Raqqa is one of the issues the US and Turkey are currently discussing. We need to demonstrate our presence in the region. If not, the terrorist groups such as Daesh, the PKK and the Syrian offshoot the People’s Protection Units [YPG] will occupy the vacuum,” he said, according to the pro-government Daily Sabah newspaper.
This is quite evident that any on-the-ground involvement in the push for Raqqa by Turkey would bring its forces on to a battlefield that the YPG-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have long been contesting. The move could also see Turkey’s troops, along with the rebel groups it supports, passing through or near areas which Syrian Kurds regard as their heartland.
In this context, the current push for the control of al-Bab carries a double advantage for Ankara. Firstly, Ankara estimates that it would give a major push for its project to create a ‘safe zone’ inside Syria, which will be free of attack by Russian and Syrian jets or ground forces and become a de facto Turkish enclave. Secondly, it also estimates that the control of al-Bab, which is only 50 kilometres northeast of Aleppo city, would enable Turkey to significantly reinforce the rebel forces controlling the eastern part of Aleppo city.
The primary question that one must be asking is: what critical objective(s) Erdogan is seeking to materialize out of this expanded military presence in Syria? By pushing for the control of al-Bab, Raqqa and Aleppo city at the same, not only is Turkey planning to drive the Kurds out of the focus but also preparing to become a major negotiator/stakeholder, alongside and on part with US and Russia, in any final settlement of the conflict. How did Erdogan achieve this feat? Simply put, he has quite stealthily inserted Turkey into the crucial fault lines in regional politics by cunningly exploiting the geopolitical rivalry between the US and Russia in Syria and the related ‘great game’ unfolding in the Black Sea region. His plan, in this context, is to maintain enough Syrian territory under his occupation for as long as the new US president arrives next year and the agenda for “regime change” in Syria is reborn.

The Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard, backed by Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary),


 ALEPPO, SYRIA (5:05 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard, backed by Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), seized the Handarat Refugee Camp on Thursday after a three-day long battle with the jihadist rebels of Fatah Halab.The Syrian Armed Forces initially captured the Handarat Refugee Camp last week; however, a swift counter-offensive by the jihadist rebels forced the government units to withdraw to the eastern outskirts of the district.
Despite the uplifting news in northern Aleppo for the Syrian government and their supporters, they need to quickly secure the Shaqayf District and nearby Kindi Hospital in order to maintain control over the Handarat Refugee Camp.
In the coming hours, the situation in northern Aleppo could change drastically if the aforementioned sites are not captured; this is one of the reasons why the Syrian Armed Forces are already storming the Shaqayf District.

الشيطان : ياربي .. من منا هو الشيطان .. أنا أم معارضة فنادق الخمسة نجوم

سؤال يطرحه الشيطان .. ثورجي سوري يدعو الى تدمير المدن السورية لتكتمل الثورة 

بقلم نارام سرجون

الغاية تبرر الوسيلة هو مبدأ انتهجه المعارضون السوريون بشكل مبتذل استغربه حتى حكماء بروتوكولات حكماء صهيون وهم سادة شعار (الغاية تبرر الوسيلة) .. وكثيرا ماردد الثوار عبارة (اننا مستعدون للتحالف مع الشيطان اذا كان هذا التحالف يوصلنا الى اسقاط النظام في سورية)

.. وهذه العبارة النظرية دأبت الأدبيات الثورية على ترويجها كمنطلق ونهج ثوري أخلاقي ومبدأ عملي تبرر فيه للناس كل الجرائم الوطنية والأخلاقية وكل الخيانات العظمى التي لجأت اليها الشخصيات المعارضة كي تبقى تحت مظلة شعار (كل شيء يجوز .. تحت سقف معادلة التحالف حتى مع الشيطان) .. فتحول الناتو – الذي كان شيطانا يشتم النبي ويهين الاسلام ويمزق القرآن – الى حليف تحت نفس اليافطة .. وتحول الاسرائيليون من شيطان يسرق الأرض المقدسة وأقدس اقداس المسلمين الى حليف تحت نفس اليافطة .. وتحول ملوك الفساد وأمراء التبذير الخليجيون وملوك الجنس والسيفيلس الى حلفاء المقاتلين الاسلاميين الذين يرفعون شعار القرآن وسنة الرسول وكأن الرسول قال لهم (انني كنت مستعدا للتحالف مع الشيطان كي تنتصر الدعوة المحمدية) ..

ولذلك فان هذه العبارة الشهيرة التي أعلنها الثوار كمبدأ عمل كانت توطئة لظهور قبول عام للخيانات الكبرى والجرائم الكبرى لأن غض النظر عن الجرائم هو تحالف مع الشيطان ولكنه ضروري لارهاب النظام ومواليه بالجريمة .. وهذا مافسر سهولة القبول بنظريات الذبح وتبريرها على انها رد فعل فقط ..وكذلك يفسر القبول بنظرية جهاد النكاح لأنها تحالف مع الشيطان أيضا طالما أن هذا النوع من الجهاد يستجلب مزيدا من المقاتلين ويستجيب لهرموناتهم المتدفقة في المعارك ..

ثم ظهر جهاد يشبه جهاد الزنا هو التنازل عن الأرض مقابل كرسي الحكم .. فتنازل الشقفة عن لواء اسكندرون لتركيا كما يتنازل الرجل عن عرضه من أجل حفنة من المال

وتنازل هو واللبواني عن الجولان لاسرائيل أيضا تحت سقف الأثمان المدفوعة للشيطان الذي نتحالف معه..
وتحول كل من في العالم الى شياطين تتمنى التحالف مع المعارضة السورية لسخائها في عروضها وتنازلاتها الأخلاقية الكبرى .. التي أذهلت العالم .. وأذهلت الشيطان نفسه الذي كان حتى فترة قريبة يبحث عمن يسلم عليه فوجد من يغسل له رجليه وذيله ويقبل له قرنيه ..

تطور مفهوم التحالف مع الشيطان الى نظريات شيطانية في التدمير الممنهج للبلاد من أجل تحطيم اقتصاد البلاد لأنه وسيلة من وسائل اخضاع النظام عندما يواجه شعبا أتعبته الازمات والفقر والحاجة .. فكل ثورة تباهي بأنها حافظت على الموافق العامة وأملاك ومصالح العباد الا فلاسفة الثورة السورية الذين وجدوا أن تقصير عمر النظام قد يكون بتدمير وسائل الحياة لاثارة تململ الناس وتذمرهم وقبولهم بأي عرض دولي فيجب اعتماده .. ولذلك نشأت فلسفة استهداف محطات الطاقة وآبار النفط وصوامع الحبوب ومحطات ضخ المياه .. كل شيء يعطل الحياة تم استهدافه ..
بعد خمس سنوات ونصف من التدمير وتعمد تخريب المدن تعرضت محاولات الثوار الاستيلاء على بعض المدن تعالت أصوات من قلب معسكر الثورجيين أن يتم تغيير تلك الاستراتيجية لأن المكسب الوحيد فيه هو تدمير بيوت الناس طالما أن النظام سيحارب لاستعادتها ويفعل ذلك دوما .. وصار هناك من يطلب أن يتم تحييد المدن عن القتال وأن يتجنب المسلحون خوض معاركهم في اي مدينة وعدم استدراج الجيش لخوض معاركه فيها لأن الناس الذين دفعوا الثمن صاروا يكرهون الثوار ويحتقرونهم ويدعون عليهم ويبصقون في وجوههم ويطلبون منهم أن يحاربوا كالرجال في الجبال والغابات لافي المطابخ والحمامات .. حتى البيئات الحاضنة صارت متذمرة جدا من اصرار المسلحين على البقاء في مدن تتحطم بفعل القتال .. ولكن هذه الدعوات والاحتجاجات لاقت ردودا قاسية .. وخاصة من منظري الثورة السورية الذين يستقرون في المدن الاوربية الجميلة الآمنة وفي كندا وأميريكا .. ويذهب أبناؤهم الى مراكز الترفيه والمطاعم ويمارسون كل حياتهم دون منغصات ..

وبالأمس كتب أحد الثورجيين المقيمين والمرفهين في برلين مقالا غاضبا يهاجم فيه كل من يلوم (الثوار) على تمترسهم بالمدن بين المدنيين بحيث ان هذه المعارك تدمر المدن .. واستهجن هذا الثورجي الخشية على العمران والمدن لأن كل الثورات في العالم تقوم على أنقاض المدن وليس على مدن سياحية .. فهذا هو ديدن الثورات .. وضرب مثلا أن الألمان ورغم يقينهم من هزيمتهم فانهم عندما دخل الخلفاء برلين فانهم قاتلوا في كل شارع حتى أحالوا برلين الى أنقاض ولم يسلموها الا حطاما .. بل ان الفرنسيين الذين حاولوا الحفاظ على باريس ولم يقاتلوا الألمان حوكموا كخونة .. أي اعتبر هذا الخائن أن الجيش السوري جيش أجنبي غاز مثله مثل الجيش الأمريكي في برلين يجب مقاومته وتدمير المدن قبل أن يدخلها .. ولذلك فان الثوار السوريين لديهم مهمة مقدسة وهي أن يتابعوا التمترس بالمدن واقتحام المدن وخوض كل حروبهم في المدن لأن تحرير كل أرياف سورية دون مدنها ليس له معنى ويبقى بلا رصيد في العالم .. لأن من يحكم المدن هو من يقرر مصير البلاد .. وأمام هذه الوصفة الرومانسية فان مدنا كثيرة لم تمس قبلا سيكون مصيرها الدمار لأن فلسفة الثوار هي أنهم لايقيمون ثورة سياحية بل ثورة مختصة بابادة المدن ..

وأمام هذا العقل الذي يدعو الى نهج تدمير المدن السورية لتكمل (الثورة) دورتها الكاملة يمكن أن نتعلم شيئا جديدا عن الثورات الجديدة وأن نضيف الى نظرية التحالف مع الشيطان فصلا جديدا .. فبعد الخيانة ومصافحة أعداء الامة والرسول والوطن وبعد جهاد النكاح والتحالف مع الاسرائيليين والناتو .. هناك دعوة لتحطيم كل المدن السورية لتدخل عصر الثورة من أوسع أبوابه عبر تشريد المزيد من السكان وتحويلهم الى مهاجرين ولاجئين وفاقدين لأساسيات حياتهم .. وبعدها يسكنون الحرية وتسكنهم الحرية ..

بعد أن كتب هذا الثورجي مقاله المبدع ونظريته عن ضرورة أن تذوق المدن السورية أعتى عواصف التدمير لتكتمل ثورتها لكم ان تتخيلوا أنه ذهب الى فراشه الوثير والدافئ في منزله في برلين .. حيث الشوارع نظيفة وهادئة ليلا .. وربما قبل أولاده وهم نائمون باطمئنان ثم ذهب وغازل زوجته قبل النوم على أضواء الشموع الهادئة .. وبعدها أطفأ النور واستغرق في سبات عميق ورأى أحلاما جميلة ولم يسمع قصفا ولارصاصا ولامرور الريح من نافذة مخلوعة أو من جدار مثقوب بقذيفة .. هو ينام مرتاح الضمير لأنه لن ينام مع أولاده في الخيام ولن تتسول زوجته لتجد مسكنا لأولادها ويراودها التجار الأتراك عن نفسها ولن تعرض ابنتها على عجائز سعوديين وخليجيين مهووسين بالجنس مع العذارى .. وهو بالطبع لن يفكر في أن يأتي باسرته من برلين الى أي مدينة سورية محررة مدمرة .. لكنه يحرض الناس على القتال حتى آخر رمق .. وآخر جدار .. وآخر نافذة .. وآخر رصيف .. وآخر ولد .. وآخر حلم ..

السؤال الذي يطرحه الشيطان علينا باحتجاج وغضب هو: ولكن هل تعتقدون أن الشيطان مستعد للتحالف مع هؤلاء الذين لايثق بهم حتى الشيطان .. وان اختلفوا مع الشيطان بحثوا عن شيطان آخر للتحالف معه ؟؟ ..

وردّا على مقولة اننا مستعدون للتحالف مع الشيطان التي يرفعها الخونة السوريون فان الشيطان سيقول 
ربما سيغفر لي الله تمردي عليه ورفضي الركوع لآدم وهو يرى هذا النموذج الرخيص من سلالة آدم .. ولكني مع هذا فانني أفضل التوبة وأن أعود عن رفضي الركوع لآدم كما أمرني الله .. على أن أتحالف مع هذا النوع من البشر 

ياربي .. من منا هو الشيطان .. أنا أم هذا النوع من الانسان؟؟

America’s “Humanitarian War” against the World

Global Research, September 28, 2016

US-Nuclear-War
The following  text is a point by point thematic summary of Prof. Michel Chossudovsky‘s presentation at theScience for Peace Conference, Academy of Sciences, Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur, 15-16 August 2016
Introduction
Historically, science has supported the development of the weapons industry and the war economy. “Science for Peace” indelibly requires reversing the logic whereby commissioned  scientific endeavors are directed towards supporting what President Eisenhower called “The Military Industrial Complex”.
What is consequently required is a massive redirection of science and technology towards the pursuit of broad societal objectives. In turn, this requires a major shift in what is euphemistically called “US Foreign Policy”, namely America’s global military agenda.
Military Affairs: The Current Global Context 
The world is at a dangerous crossroads.  The United States and its allies have launched a military adventure which threatens the future of humanity.
Under a global military agenda, the actions undertaken by the Western military alliance (U.S.-NATO-Israel) in Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, Palestine, Ukraine, Syria and Iraq are coordinated at the highest levels of the military hierarchy. We are not dealing with piecemeal military and intelligence operations. Major military and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and the Asia Pacific region.
The current situation is all the more critical inasmuch as a US-NATO war on Russia, China and Iran is part of the US presidential election debate. It is presented as a political and military option to Western public opinion.
The US-NATO military agenda combines both major theater operations as well as covert actions geared towards destabilizing sovereign states. America’s hegemonic project is to destabilize and destroy countries through acts of war, support of terrorist organizations, regime change and economic warfare.
U.S. and NATO forces have been deployed in Eastern Europe including Poland and Ukraine. In turn, military maneuvers are being conducted at Russia’s doorstep which could potentially lead to confrontation with the Russian Federation.
The U.S. and its allies are also threatening China under President Obama’s “Pivot to Asia”.
The U.S. led airstrikes initiated in August 2014 directed against Iraq and Syria under the pretext of going after the Islamic State are part of a scenario of military escalation extending from North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean to Central and South Asia.
*         *        *
THE HISTORY OF NUCLEAR WAR AND “COLLATERAL DAMAGE”  
“We have discovered the most terrible bomb in the history of the world. It may be the fire destruction prophesied in the Euphrates Valley Era, after Noah and his fabulous Ark…. This weapon is to be used against Japan … [We] will use it so that military objectives and soldiers and sailors are the target and not women and children. Even if the Japs are savages, ruthless, merciless and fanatic, we as the leader of the world for the common welfare cannot drop that terrible bomb on the old capital or the new. …  The target will be a purely military one… It seems to be the most terrible thing ever discovered, but it can be made the most useful.” (President Harry S. Truman, Diary, July 25, 1945)
“The World will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians..” (President Harry S. Truman in a radio speech to the Nation, August 9, 1945).
[Note: the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945; the Second on Nagasaki, on August 9, on the same day as Truman’s radio speech to the Nation]
Hiroshima after the bomb
Is Truman’s notion of “collateral damage” in the case of nuclear war still relevant? Publicly available military documents confirm that nuclear war is still on the drawing board  of the Pentagon.
Compared to the 1950s, however, today’s nuclear weapons are far more advanced. The delivery system is more precise. In addition to China and Russia, Iran and North Korea are targets for a first strike pre-emptive nuclear attack.
US military documents claim that the new generation of tactical nuclear weapons are harmless to civilians.
Let us be under no illusions, the Pentagon’s plan to blow up the planet using advanced nuclear weapons is still on the books.
War is Good for Business:
Spearheaded by the “defense contractors” (Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, British Aerospace  et al), the Obama administration has proposed a one trillion dollar plan over a 30 year period to develop a new generation of nuclear weapons, bombers, submarines, and intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) largely directed at Russia and China.
War with Russia: From the Cold War to the New Cold War
Blowing up Russia, targeting Russian cities is still on the Pentagon’s drawing board.  In the words of Hillary Clinton, the nuclear option is on the table.  Preemptive nuclear war is part of her election campaign.

According to 1956 Plan, H-Bombs were to be Used Against Priority “Air Power” Targets in the Soviet Union, China, and Eastern Europe.
Major Cities in Soviet Bloc, Including East Berlin, Were High Priorities in “Systematic Destruction” for Atomic Bombings.  (William Burr, U.S. Cold War Nuclear Attack Target List of 1200 Soviet Bloc Cities “From East Germany to China”, National Security Archive Electronic Briefing Book No. 538, December 2015
Excerpt of list of 1200 cities targeted for nuclear attack in alphabetical order. National Security Archive
GLOBAL WARFARE
The US has formulated a global war scenario, which is defined in military documents.
There are three major regional deployments of US-NATO which threaten Global Security:
  1. Eastern Europe on Russia’s Western Frontier, with the deployment of US-NATO military hardware on Russia’s doorstep
  2. “The Pivot to Asia” largely directed against China
  3. The Middle East and North Africa, extending to Central Asia
In the above regions, the use of nuclear weapons on a preemptive basis is contemplated against both nuclear and non-nuclear states.
In other regions of the World including Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa, non-conventional forms of warfare are envisaged including destabilization,  ”regime change”,  covert support to terrorist organizations, economic warfare.
1.  THREATENING RUSSIA ON ITS WESTERN FRONTIER
Russia is threatened on its Western frontier with the US-NATO deployment of the so called missile defense system.
A pro-US regime has been installed in Kiev which integrates two prominent Neo-Nazi Parties.
Neo-Nazis are heavily integrated in Ukraine’s National Guard and military. The US government is channeling financial support, weapons and training to a Neo-Nazi entity –which is part of The Ukraine National Guard– The Azov Battalion (Батальйон Азов) is  under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the equivalent of America’s Homeland Security.

Kill the Russians: The New Cold War is no longer Cold

2. “PIVOT TO ASIA”:  SOUTH CHINA SEA

China is threatened by the US military in the South China Sea

WAR WITH CHINA IS CURRENTLY ON THE DRAWING BOARD OF THE PENTAGON AS OUTLINED IN A RAND REPORT COMMISSIONED BY THE US ARMY


Washington is actively involved in creating divisions between China and its neighbours.
The objective is to draw South East Asia and the Far East into a protracted military conflict by creating divisions between China and ASEAN countries, most of which are the victims of Western colonialism and military aggression: Extensive crimes against humanity have been committed against Vietnam, Cambodia, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia. In a bitter irony, these countries are now military allies of the United States.
Bilateral economic relations with China are destabilized. The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a US hegemonic project which seeks to control trade, investment, intellectual property, etc in the Asia Pacific region.

US-NATO WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA (MENA)
Meanwhile, under the pretext of  waging a “war on terrorism”, US-NATO are intervening militarily in the broader Middle East Central Asian region extending from the Mediterranean to Central Asia: Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen, resulting in several million civilian deaths.
THe objective is to destabilize and destroy sovereign countries and to displace secular governments under regime change.
The next stage of the Middle East war is Iran.

The Global War on Terrorism is a Big Lie. Al Qaeda is a Creation of US Intelligence

From the outset of the Soviet-Afghan war in 1979 to the present, various Islamic fundamentalist paramilitary organizations became de facto instruments of US intelligence and more generally of the US-NATO-Israel military alliance.
The US has actively supported Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist organizations since the onslaught of the Soviet Afghan War.  Washington has engineered the installation of Islamist regimes in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It has destroyed the fabric of secular societies.
Confirmed by Israeli intelligence media,  the Al Qaeda opposition fighters in Syria are recruited by US-NATO and the Turkish high command.
They are the foot-soldiers of the Western military alliance, with special forces in their midst. The Al Qaeda affiliated “moderate” terrorist organizations in Syria are supported by Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
The counter-terrorism agenda is bogus. It’s a criminal undertaking. What is being bombed is the civilian infrastructure of a sovereign country.
The Historical Origins of al Qaeda
In this video-footage President Carter’s National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski (1979) arrives in a helicopter and speaks to a translator in front of a seated crowd of Mujahedeen:
‘We know of their deep belief in god – that they’re confident that their struggle will succeed. – That land over-there is yours – and you’ll go back to it some day, because your fight will prevail, and you’ll have your homes, your mosques, back again, because your cause is right, and god is on your side.’
The video-footage can be found in the documentary series “Cold War” (Episode #24, Soldiers of God, 1975-1988), Turner Original Productions (Time Warner), 1998. Speaker Kenneth Branagh.

The Central Intelligence Agency using Pakistan’s ISI as a go-between played a key role in training the Mujahideen. In turn, the CIA-sponsored guerrilla training was integrated with the teachings of Islam. The madrasahs were set up by Wahabi fundamentalists financed out of Saudi Arabia:

Destroying National Sovereignty and Secular Societies, Installing an Islamic State (Made in America)
What has been the fate of Afghanistan.
A progressive secular state in the 1970s and early 1980s has become a US failed State integrated by US supported Al Qaeda terrorists. This is the model that US-NATO want to impose on Syria, Iraq, Libya: Destroy national sovereignty and replace it with an Islamic State which conforms to Washington’s demands.
Kabul University in the 1980′s

Unknown to the American public, the US spread the teachings of the Islamic jihad in textbooks “Made in America”, developed at the University of Nebraska:
… the United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings, part of covert attempts to spur resistance to the Soviet occupation.
The primers, which were filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines, have served since then as the Afghan school system’s core curriculum. Even the Taliban used the American-produced books,..
The White House defends the religious content, saying that Islamic principles permeate Afghan culture and that the books “are fully in compliance with U.S. law and policy.” Legal experts, however, question whether the books violate a constitutional ban on using tax dollars to promote religion.
… AID officials said in interviews that they left the Islamic materials intact because they feared Afghan educators would reject books lacking a strong dose of Muslim thought. The agency removed its logo and any mention of the U.S. government from the religious texts, AID spokeswoman Kathryn Stratos said.
“It’s not AID’s policy to support religious instruction,” Stratos said. “But we went ahead with this project because the primary purpose . . . is to educate children, which is predominantly a secular activity.”
… Published in the dominant Afghan languages of Dari and Pashtun, the textbooks were developed in the early 1980s under an AID grant to the University of Nebraska -Omaha and its Center for Afghanistan Studies. The agency spent $ 51 million on the university’s education programs in Afghanistan from 1984 to 1994.” (Washington Post, 23 March 2002)


CONCLUDING REMARKS 
War is not an inevitable process. War can be prevented through mass action.
War criminals occupy positions of authority. The citizenry is galvanized into supporting the rulers, who are “committed to their safety and well-being”. Through media disinformation, war is given a humanitarian mandate.
The legitimacy of the war must be addressed. Antiwar sentiment alone does not disarm a military agenda.
The corporate backers and sponsors of war and war crimes must also be targeted including the oil companies, the defense contractors, the financial institutions and the corporate media, which has become an integral part of the war propaganda machine.
There is a sense of urgency. Today, the antiwar movement is virtually defunct.
What is the Truth
The real threat to global security emanates from the US-NATO-Israel alliance, yet realities in an inquisitorial environment are turned upside down: the warmongers are committed to peace, the victims of war are presented as the protagonists of war.
The homeland is threatened.
The media, intellectuals and the politicians, in chorus, obfuscate the unspoken truth, namely that the US-NATO led war destroys humanity.
When the lie becomes the truth there is no turning backwards.
When war is upheld as a humanitarian endeavor, Justice and the entire international legal system are turned upside down: pacifism and the antiwar movement are criminalized. Opposing the war becomes a criminal act. Meanwhile, the war criminals in high office have ordered a witch hunt against those who challenge their authority.
The Big Lie must be exposed for what it is and what it does.
It sanctions the indiscriminate killing of men, women and children.
It destroys families and people. It destroys the commitment of people towards their fellow human beings.
It prevents people from expressing their solidarity for those who suffer. It upholds war and the police state as the sole avenue.
It destroys both nationalism and internationalism.
Breaking the lie means breaking a criminal project of global destruction, in which the quest for profit is the overriding force.
ACTIONS
1. The role of media disinformation in sustaining the military agenda is crucial.
We will not succeed in our endeavours unless the propaganda apparatus is weakened and eventually dismantled. It is essential  to inform our fellow citizens on the causes and consequences of the US-led war, not to mention the extensive war crimes and atrocities which are routinely obfuscated by the media. This is no easy task.  It requires an  effective counter-propaganda program which refutes mainstream media assertions.
It is essential that the relevant information and analysis reaches the broader public.   The Western media is controlled by a handful of powerful business syndicates. The media conglomerates which control network TV and the printed press must be challenged through cohesive actions which reveal the lies and falsehoods.
2. There is opposition within the political establishment in the US as well as within the ranks of the Armed Forces.
While this opposition does not necessarily question the overall direction of US foreign policy, it is firmly opposed to military adventurism, including the use of nuclear weapons. These voices within the institutions of the State, the Military and the business establishment are important because they can be usefully channeled to discredit and ultimately dismantle the “war on terrorism” consensus.  The broadest possible alliance of political and social forces is, therefore, required to prevent a military adventure which in a very real sense threatens the future of humanity.
3. The structure of military alliances must be addressed. A timely shift in military alliances could potentially reverse the course of history.
Whereas France and Germany are broadly supportive of the US led war, there are strong voices in both countries as well as within the European Union, which firmly oppose the US led military agenda, both at the grassroots level as well within the political system itself.
The weakening of the system of alliances which commits Western Europe to supporting the Anglo-American military axis, could indeed contribute to reversing  the tide. Washington would hesitate to wage a war on Iran without the support of France and Germany.
4. The holding of large antiwar rallies is important and essential. But in will not in itself reverse the tide of war unless it is accompanied by the development of a cohesive antiwar network.

What is required is a grass roots antiwar network, a mass movement at national and international levels, which challenges the legitimacy of the main military and political actors,
 as well as their corporate sponsors, and which would ultimately be instrumental in unseating those who rule in our name. The construction of this type of network will take time to develop.
Initially, it should focus on developing an antiwar stance within existing citizens’ organizations (e.g. trade unions, community organizations, professional regroupings, student federations, municipal councils, etc.).
Close down the weapons factories and the military bases.
Bring home the troops.
Members of the armed forces should disobey orders and refuse to participate in a criminal war.
