"It follows disclosures that a double-bed had been installed at the cost of $139,000 on a five-hour flight from Tel Aviv to London for Margaret Thatcher’s funeral to allow the 63-year-old prime minister and his wife Sara, 54, to travel in comfort."
"Zionism bases itself on three claims: (1) that the ancient Hebrews possessed ancient Palestine and nobody else lived there; (2) that modern descendants of European converts to Judaism are the direct descendants of the Hebrews; and (3) that, based on these two claims, modern European Jews have the right to take Palestine from the Palestinians.I've been fretting about the plight of those who have the bitter task of explaining the refusal of the New Yorker and the Washington Post to publish Hersh's latest revelations with the extra degree of difficulty of doing so without using the term 'Jew-controlled media'. Can't be done, but they have to try anyway.
While the first two claims lack any historical validity as attested to by mounds of historical evidence, even were we to assume that they were valid, they do not lead to the acceptance of the third proposition."
"One potential underlying motivation for all these actions might be the discovery that al Qaeda has achieved our long-feared aim, the acquisition of CW, which it was using to stage an attack in an effort to get Americans (as one of Hersh’s sources describe) to “provid[e] close air support for al-Nusra,” and that it was doing so with some knowledge or even assistance from our Saudi allies."New Yorker, Washington Post Passed On Seymour Hersh Syria Report" The Jew-controlled media is not going to publish the outing of an important, and very nearly deadly, false flag, when the false flag is one of the most important weapons of the warmongering of World Jewry.
Such a discovery certainly might lead allies to avoid empowering al-Nusra. It would explain both Assad’s incentive to expose himself to Israeli attacks by disarming his CW, in an effort to provide real deniability for any attacks going forward. And perhaps most crucially, it might explain why we would move away from our role in granting the Saudis decisive help in extending their hegemony over the region, and move towards shoring up Iran as a counter-balance."

"Sara Bronfman, President elect stated, “As I am able to devote my efforts to the development of the Chamber to support bilateral trade between Libya and the United States, it is a privilege to take on this significant role as the President of the US-Libya Chamber of Commerce.”The buried lede and the real Lieberman interest: "Bronfman heir launches Canada-Libya trade initiative" (my emphasis in red):
The US-Libya Chamber of Commerce was formed in 2010 to support both the Libyan people post revolution. The development of American-Libyan private industry and creation of a strong civil society through enterprise are top priorities for the Chamber.
Ms. Bronfman further commented by stating that the US-Libya Chamber of Commerce will be working directly with the Independent Libya Foundation, of which she is also a board member."
"An heiress to the Bronfman fortune and her Libyan fiancé have launched a trade initiative between Canada and Libya, saying they want to break the legacy of corrupt deals under Colonel Moammar Gadhafi.As much of a disaster that Libya is today, it is going to get worse.
Sara Bronfman, 35, daughter of the billionaire Edgar Bronfman Sr., met a former civilian pilot named Basit Igtet, 41, over lunch during the height of the Libyan revolution last summer while he served as a diplomatic envoy for the Libyan rebels, helping them gain official recognition from foreign governments. Ms. Bronfman became passionately involved in the country's troubles, even visiting the eastern city of Benghazi for what she calls “a few very intense days” in November.
On Monday, they announced the creation of the Canada-Libya Chamber of Commerce, with Ms. Bronfman as president and Mr. Igtet as chairman. Their group doesn't yet have a office in Canada or a functional website, but Ms. Bronfman says they have already decided to avoid dealing with SNC-Lavalin or other companies that are alleged to have had close ties with the Gadhafi family.
“Those companies that worked with Gadhafi and helped his cohort to get wealthy did so at the expense of the Libyan people, and I think they have a huge debt to pay to the Libyan people,” Ms. Bronfman said in an exclusive interview with The Globe and Mail this week. “They won't be invited. We're very firm on that.”"
"Al-Monitor learned that Burns was in Geneva during the second round of nuclear talks between the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (the US, UK, France, Russia, China) plus Germany (P5+1) and Iran held here November 7-9, and subsequently learned additional details about the bilateral channel, but agreed to hold the story at the administration’s request until the conclusion of the third round of nuclear talks that ended here in a breakthrough tonight.Back channel? Around whom was Burns sneaking? Who else but Israeli agents in the French and British negotiating teams, and Israeli agents in his own negotiating team, all of whom were given the task of sabotage? Everybody in the State Department is actually operating behind enemy lines, the enemy being ZOG.
Al-Monitor also learned that Burns is also currently in Geneva during this, the third round, of P5+1 Iran nuclear negotiations. Both times, he did not stay at the main diplomatic hotel, the Intercontinental, where many of the negotiations have taken place, but at another site, the US official said. Talwar has been seen by journalists at bus stops in the city and running towards the hotel at various times during the last three rounds of talks here; it could not be confirmed if he was relaying messages between the discussions taking place on site at the hotel, where the US, European and Iranian delegations stay, to Burns at another site."
"A 52-year-old former anarchist activist, Abdelhakim Dekhar, will be formally accused on Thursday of the gun attack on the French newspaper Liberation on Monday.Rewrite:
Mr Dekhar was arrested on Wednesday night as he lay semi-conscious in a car in an underground car-park near Paris after taking an overdose. Authorities said that his DNA matches traces left by the gunman who grievously wounded a young photographer in the lobby of Liberation on Monday morning.
Mr Dekhar was jailed for four years in 1998 for acting as an accessory to a young anarchist couple, dubbed the "French Bonnie and Clyde". The couple killed three policemen and a taxi-driver during a failed robbery and car chase in October 1994.
Since he left prison, Mr Dekhar is believed to have spent many years abroad. He was arrested on Wednesday evening after a tip-off from a man who recognised him in security camera footage released by the authorities.
Heavily armed police at first raided a hotel at Bois-Colombes, six miles north west of Paris. Mr Dekhar was found soon afterwards slumped in a "semi-comatose state" in an underground car-park with an open packet of pills nearby.
The interior minister, Manuel Valls, saluted the work of police during a 72-hour nationwide manhunt and said that "all the facts that we have today point to (Dekhar's) involvement". His motives for the attack on Liberation - and other attacks without casualties at a bank headquarters on Monday and a TV station last Friday - remain unclear. Investigators are waiting for Mr Dekhar to recover from his overdose in a secure hospital before questioning him later on Thursday.
Mr Valls revealed that police had found letters and other documents in which Mt Dekhar attempted to explain the attacks. They were still being studied, police sources said, but were "rather confused". There was nothing which suggested a political motive, they said.
The suspect was located after a tip-off from a member of the public who said that he had given shelter "from time to time" to a man resembling the gunman in CCTV footage. The informant said that Dekhar had spoken to him about the shootings and had admitted to "doing something stupid"."
"The man suspected of Monday's gun attack on a French newspaper had lived until recently in London, it emerged on Thursday.It appears that the authorities picked a guy who complained about French Zionist neocolonialism, obtained his DNA from where his ratting 'friend', who had been watching him for 13 years, sheltered him, drugged him, and scattered his anarchist writings around (note the change in the story to back off the claim that the writings attempted to explain the attacks, and to remove the specific claim that the alleged shooter had spoken to the informant about the shootings - it is a common technique in conspiracies to release the original story with very specific claims of guilt, thus imprinting the idea in the minds of the public, and then quietly back off the specific claims so that nobody can challenge them later). I suspect that three separate French government agents were involved in the three separate attacks, none of them Abdelhakim Dekhar.
Abdelhakim Dekhar, 52, was was arrested on Wednesday night as he lay semi-conscious in a car in an underground car-park near Paris after taking an overdose. Authorities said that his DNA matches traces left by the gunman who grievously wounded a young photographer in the lobby of Liberation on Monday morning.
Mr Dekhar was jailed in 1998 for acting as an accessory to a young far Left or anarchist couple, dubbed the "French Bonnie and Clyde". The couple killed three policemen and a taxi-driver during a failed robbery and car chase in October 1994.
Since he left prison in 1999, Mr Dekhar is believed to have spent many years abroad, including several periods in London. He was arrested on Wednesday evening after a tip-off from a friend who recognised him in security camera footage released by the authorities.
Heavily armed police at first raided a hotel at Bois-Colombes, six miles north west of Paris. Mr Dekhar was found soon afterwards slumped in a "semi-comatose state" in in an underground car-park with an open packet of pills nearby.
The Paris prosecutor Francois Molins told a press conference today that investigators had found two rambling and confused documents written by Dekhtar, which "merited examination by a psychiatrist". In one of the documents, Dekhtar attacked capitalism and the media and protested about the violence in Libya and Syria. He made no mention of his suspected crimes.
Earlier the interior minister, Manuel Valls, saluted the work of police during a 72-hour nationwide manhunt and said that "all the fact that we have today point to (Dekhar's) involvement". His motives for the attack on Liberation - and other attacks without casualties at a bank headquarters on Monday and a TV station last Friday - remain unclear.
Investigators are waiting for Mr Dekhar to recover from his overdose in a secure hospital before questioning him later on Thursday.
He will be formally accused of "attempte murder" and "kidnapping".
The friend who tipped police off sometimes gave Dekhar shelter when he visited the Paris area. The friend told police that he had first met Dekhtar in London 13 years ago. He recognised the gunman in CCTV footage. The informant said that he had spoken to him about the shootings on Tuesday and that he had admitted to "doing something stupid".
Mr Dekhar ended his prison sentence in the so-called "Rey-Maupin" affair in 1999. He was convicted in 1998 of helping to supply guns to a young student couple, Florence Rey and Audry Maupin, who shot dead three policemen and a taxi-driver during a politically-motivated robbery. Although given a four year sentence, most of the term had already been served awaiting trial.
Both Mr Dekhar and the couple were involved in anarchist or extreme left movements which wanted to provoke a revolution in France. Mr Maupin died of wounds that he received during a shoot-out with police. Ms Rey left prison in 2009
At 10.15 on Monday morning, a man dressed in a long khaki coat and light blue jeans, burst into the lobby area of the left-wing newspaper Liberation in a converted garage near the Place de la Republique in central Paris. He immediately fired two shots from a double-barrelled, pump action hunting rifle into the back of a young photographer who was entering a lift.
The man fled without saying a word. The young photographer, named only as Cesar, 23, was gravely wounded. One bullet passed through a lung. He was said to be recovering slowly on Wednesday, but still in a critical condition, after a series of operation at the La Pitie Salpatriere hospital.
Matching DNA samples were found on bullet cases at Liberation and cartridges ejected from a gun by a man who menaced staff, without shooting, at BFM TV last Friday. Matching traces were also found on cartridges left on the ground outside the headquarters of the Societe Generale bank, in the La Defense office district, where a gunman fired random shots at windows 90 minutes after the attack on Liberation.
Another DNA sample was found on the door handle of a car which the the gunman hijacked after the shooting at la Defense. No match was found with any of the more than the 2,000,000 people in the French national DNA database because Dekhar left prison before such records were started."
"Car avant de se shooter aux médicaments à haute dose dans une voiture d’un parking à Bois-Colombes (Hauts de Seine) où la police l’a débusqué dans un état comateux, le tireur présumé de Libération a dû faire le ménage. La brigade criminelle n’a rien retrouvé en perquisition chez l’ami qui l’hébergeait à Courbevoie, ni la parka kaki qu’il portait lundi matin lors de sa tentative d’assassinat de notre photographe assistant César, ni la doudoune noire sans manches filmée lors de son intrusion armée à BFMTV vendredi, pas plus que la veste anorak rouge enfilée dans la Twingo de son otage après ses tirs contre un bâtiment de la Société générale à la Défense. La police judiciaire n’a pas plus mis la main sur les baskets vertes à semelles blanches de l’auteur présumé de ces quatre crimes et délits, mais a découvert «une paire de lunettes vertes»."This essentially homeless and probably crazy patsy - but with a useful history and evocative name - managed to ditch all the clothing evidence which connected him to the various crimes for which he will be punished so that French Zio-colonialism may continue.
"At a presentation in a conference room inside the US Capitol on Friday, Schneier—who has been helping The Guardian review the trove of documents provided by Snowden—said that in its haste to "weaponize" the Internet, the NSA has broken its mechanisms of security. And those breaks—including the backdoors that the NSA convinced or coerced software developers to put into the implementations of their encryption and other security products, are so severe that it is now just a matter of time before others with less-noble causes than fighting terrorism will be able to exploit the holes the NSA has created."
"In each of these cases Britain and its allies, chiefly America, intervened to overthrow the army, disband government, dismantle the judiciary and leave militias to run riot. Little or no attempt was made to replace anarchy with a new order. "Nation building" was a fiasco. The British bombs that flattened government buildings in Kabul, Baghdad and Tripoli did not replace them, or those who worked in them. Those who dropped them congratulated themselves on their work and went home."Tony Blair: never in the field of human history has one man earned so much from the deaths of so many"
It is hard to exaggerate the misery and chaos created by so-called "liberal interventionism". It is hard to think of a more immoral foreign policy, roaming the (chiefly Muslim) world, killing people and sowing anarchy. That is why the blood-stained consequence should be splashed across headlines. Those who seek political kudos by visiting violence on foreign peoples should never be allowed to forget their deeds."
"With so much evidence, how can anyone rational doubt Arafat was poisoned? Don't underestimate the lengths some in the establishment media will go to to absolve Israel of any crime.It's simple really. Israel was the only actor who had access to the poison used and access to the Palestinians around Arafat who could have administered the poison. If you couple that with a long history of assassinations and attempted assassinations conducted by Israel - and gloated over by Israel - including against Arafat, and a stated intention by Israel to kill him, plus motive (which we can see in what has happened to the Palestinian people under the Palestinian Authority since Arafat died), there is beyond-a-reasonable-doubt proof that Israel did it. The polonium is the key. Other state actors might have has access to polonium, but none of them also had access to high Palestinian officials to administer the poison.
Poisoning with polonium alone does not prove it was Israel that did it. But it certainly makes it the prime suspect. Polonium is lethal doses is expensive to produce artificially, and only a small handful of states have the nuclear facilities to do so. Israel is certainly one of them. The others had no interest in killing him.
Israel on the other hand has a long history of assassinating Palestinian leaders, writers and fighters. The bungled 1997 Mossad attempt on the life of Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal was carried out with a poison quite unknown at the time. If the Israeli agents had remained undetected, and not been caught by Meshaal's bodyguard in the way they were, the press would probably have ended up reporting Meshaal died from a "mysterious illness" in a similar way that they did for Arafat at the time - when no autopsy was done."
"I was under the impression that President Kennedy was assassinated by a Communist named Lee Harvey Oswald; evidently, I was misinformed. Instead, it must have been a giant right-wing conspiracy."
"The diplomatic progress that brought six foreign ministers tantalisingly close to a historic agreement on the Iranian nuclear programme is in danger of unravelling before negotiators meet again this month, officials and analysts warned on Sunday.and:
In a bid to contain the danger, the lead US negotiator, Wendy Sherman, flew straight from the talks in Geneva to Israel to reassure Binyamin Netanyahu's government that the intended deal would not harm his country's national interests.
The hastily arranged trip represented an acknowledgement of Netanyahu's power to block a deal through his influence in the US Congress and in Europe. Egged on by the Israelis, the US Senate is poised to pass new sanctions that threaten to derail the talks before they get to their planned next round in 10 days' time.
The US secretary of state, John Kerry, said on Sunday that America was sufficiently sceptical of Iran's willingness to dismantle its nuclear programme and would keep sanctions in place as talks continue.
"We are not blind and I don't think we're stupid. We have a pretty strong sense of how to measure whether or not we are acting in the interests of our country and of the globe," Kerry said on NBC's Meet the Press.
More immediately, Netanyahu demonstrated over the weekend that he could sway the Geneva talks from the inside through his relationship with Paris. It has emerged that after a call from Barack Obama on Friday evening asking him not to oppose the planned Geneva deal, Netanyahu did the opposite. He called British prime minister, David Cameron, Russian president Vladimir Putin, German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president François Hollande, asking them to block it.
Hollande, whose government shared some of Israel's concerns, agreed. It was French opposition that finally sank the bid to seal a temporary nuclear accord, after three days of intense bargaining, in the early hours of Sunday morning, but Netanyahu was quick to claim credit."
"The French roadblock took Washington by surprise. There had been an initial day of discussions in Geneva on Thursday involving the Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, the EU foreign policy chief, Lady Ashton, and senior diplomats from the US, the UK, France, Germany, Russia and China, the six-nation group known as the P5+1 that has led the nuclear negotiations since 2006.It is time for all moral and decent people to start a 100% boycott of all things french, to be ended only when a full Iran peace deal is in place with all sanctions lifted. Needless to say, the current Jewslaves in the French government have permanently denied their country the benefits of future contracts with Iran. More importantly, they have missed out on a crucial pivot in world history that even the American have managed to figure out. I like France, and I'm sorry to say we are going to see a continued deterioration and degradation in this once great country.
There had been an understanding that if the talks looked close to agreement, Kerry, who was in the Middle East last week, would come to Geneva to push them over the finishing line. But on Thursday night the Iranians forced his hand. Zarif announced that work on drafting an agreement would start the next morning and officials told the press Kerry would fly in the same day – putting the US secretary of state in a bind. If he stayed away and the talks failed, he would be blamed. He was weighing the possibility of personal intervention anyway, officials in Geneva said, but would have preferred to have chosen the timing and made the announcement himself.
Kerry had an uncomfortable meeting with Netanyahu at Ben Gurion airport on Friday morning in which the Israeli prime minister lectured him on the dangers of deal with Iran which loosened sanctions without halting the nuclear project. The atmosphere was so sour, the Americans opted out of a joint press appearance.
Kerry took off for Geneva, but before he landed the draft agreement was under public attack from another, more unexpected quarter. The French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius, told a French radio station that Paris would not accept a jeu des dupes – a fools' game, casting doubt on when a deal could be concluded.
He broke an agreement not to discuss the content of the negotiations in public . . . "
"What did Israeli leaders had in mind when they decided to poison the Palestinian leader with a radioactive substance that would leave forensic traces in Arafat’s remains for millenniums to come? What kind of a murderer consciously leaves fingerprints behind? After all, the decision to kill Arafat and in such a manner was taken by the Israel’s supreme decision makers. They must have closely examined the idea, the consequences and the means involved.They wanted to be caught. It is an expression of power typical of violent group supremacists. They sought the ability to deny they did it while complaining that stating they did it is simply hatred of the Jewish group ('anti-Semiticism'). At the same time they know that everybody is aware that they did it and aware that they appear to be so powerful that it doesn't matter that everybody is aware.
The more I look into it, I gather that the Israelis who took the decision to poison Arafat with radioactive polonium came to the conclusion that the Goyim must be stupid, and they had a good reason to come to such a conclusion. Bizarrely enough, earlier this week, when it became clear that Arafat’s body was indeed saturated with a radioactive substance, not a single Western leader saw the need to denounce Israel or call for an immediate probe of Israel nuclear industry. As if this is not enough, Israeli spokesmen ridiculed the recent scientific findings, tagging the media reports as a ‘soap opera.’ Clearly, they are convinced that Israel can get away with murder, and they are apparently correct.
Earlier this weekend we learned that instead of Israel, it is actually Iran’s nuclear project that is under growing international pressure. So here we are, while it becomes clear that Israel has been actively engaged in nuking the Palestinian leader, Western world leaders are shamelessly bowing to the Jewish Lobby and Saudi pressure mounting more pressure on Iran.
I guess that the Israelis do have a good reason to believe that the so-called Goyim are very stupid indeed. But such a reading of the unfolding events would mean a complete dismissal of Jewish history - an endless chain of holocausts. If Jewish history teaches us something, it is always just a question of time before the Goyim say ‘enough is enough’. The Israelis and their devoted lobbies, once again, misinterpret Gentiles’ tolerance as blunt stupidity. But I would kindly advise my ex-brethren to beware, time is running out for their horrid and sinister games."

That's the exact opposite of what worried Bibi. Treason would be much more difficult if Americans realized whose side the Jews were on."The Israeli American Council recently commissioned the distribution of leaflets to thousands of Jewish Americans asking them where their allegiance would lie in the event of a real crisis between the U.S. and Israel. The leaflet was originally endorsed by representatives of Israel’s foreign ministry. When Netanyahu learned of this endorsement he directed the ministry to disassociate itself from the questionnaire.
I think it’s reasonable to assume he was worried by the prospect of the survey indicating that in the event of a showdown between himself and President Obama, a majority of Jewish Americans would be Americans first and not Israel firsters."
"One of his big complaints — which he was pretty vocal about — was that he knew a number of people in the media who he believed had been publicly pro-Iraq War, even though they were privately skeptical or even anti-war but who had, according to Mike, gone along with the pro-war sentiment for the sake of their careers. That became a big sticking point with him later on. I think it was really an influential experience for him — an important negative example — in terms of how he decided to approach the role of a journalist."The brother ascribes the accident to a manic episode and excessive speed, except it appears Hastings wasn't driving all that fast.
