What are the origins of ISIS?

Two recent soccer matches in Turkey were supposed to open with public minutes of silence to remember victims of the terror attacks in Paris and Ankara. Instead, the gesture of respect was shattered by voices shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) in support of ISIS, which has once again claimed responsibility. The Turkish media, but not the Western media, reported the incident.

But what are the real origins of this terrorist organization, also variously known as DAESH, ISIL or IS? What is the role of Turkey? The US? Israel? Saudi Arabia and Qatar? These questions are almost never raised by the Western media. But why?

And no one in the West seems to be voicing other crucial questions either, such as; who is still funding and enabling ISIS?

In fact, although it’s barely ever discussed, Turkey – a NATO member and ally of the West – is the gateway for adventure-seeking ISIS recruits, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, an army of some 30,000 strong terrorists drawn from more than 50 countries.

In addition to supplying abundant stores of American weapons and spare parts, new four-wheel-drive vehicles, food, communication equipment, IT technology, military and intelligence training, media and political coverage, Turkey also even provides wives to the fighters. With the shooting down of a Russian SU-24 plane just a few days ago, the eyes of the world are suddenly turned on Turkey, making this a good time to question whose side it’s really on.

But President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been less than convincing in response to Turkey’s blind eye on the flow of foreign fighters transiting through it to Syria.

“We don’t claim there are no ISIS militants in Turkey today,” he said. “Foreign fighters have gone to Syria from France, Britain and Germany … [but] they couldn’t have crossed from Turkey to Syria if we had received certain information. What can we do if we don’t get information? Are we supposed to stop tourist entries and exits? They would then start screaming that Turkey has banned freedom of travel.”

Similarly, what roles are the affluent Saudi Arabia and Qatar playing in financing ISIS? And are Israel and the US its unacknowledged founders? What are the not-so-explicit agendas at play among the various contestants who claim to be at war against ISIS?

The world should also be demanding to know precisely how the CIA, along with intelligence agencies of France, the UK, Canada, other NATO countries, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and Israel are involved.

And who coordinated the export of this terrorist group to Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Lebanon? Canadian Prof. Anthony Hall, Professor of Globalization Studies at the University of Lethbridge asks: “Why has there been no follow-up on the fact that an agent of the Canadian embassy in Jordan was caught helping to recruit for ISIS last March?”

“What about the concept of mercenary soldiers covertly funded to bring about outcomes that have nothing to do with creating a global caliphate?” Dr. Hall continues. “Why is (Vladimir) Putin’s war on ISIS so effective compared to the play-acting involved in seeming to fight the mercenaries assigned to overthrow (Syria’s Bashar) Assad?”

And, he adds, “For how many more years must we in the West be subjected to the steady diet of disinformation depicting the imagery of self-contained Islamic extremists acting absolutely autonomously and independently out of no other motive than a radical religious ideology?”

In the same vein, more Westerners should be wondering why their politicians insist on “fighting ISIS” but never focus on those responsible for its origins and ultimately for its agency in killing so many innocent people, including journalists.

Shouldn’t all those responsible – financially, politically, morally – for founding, arming and supporting ISIS be brought to the International Court of Justice and tried for what amounts to blatant war crimes?

And that includes those who’ve lured disaffected young Muslim Westerners to join ISIS and let them back into their own countries to commit acts of terrorism. Who then is deriving advantage and power from ramping up the political exploitation of Islamophobia?

Canadian Prof. Michael Keefer of the University of Guelph, writes: “The Erdogan government is very obviously in bed with ISIS. There’s good analysis of massive Turkish complicity with ISIS from (London School of Economics) Professor David Graeber (‘Turkey could cut off Islamic State’s supply lines. So why doesn’t it?’ The Guardian [November 18]), and from Nafeez Ahmed (‘NATO is harbouring the Islamic State,’ Insurge Intelligence [November 2015]), among others.”

Canadian Prof. John McMurtry, also from the University of Guelph, comments on the silence of the Western media and “the very big and continuing lie of omission of the covert US-led founding, funding and instrumentation of the jihadi terrorists from 1980s Afghanistan to ISIS today. Through Libya to Syria to Mali, the links are so well established and known that it can only be a propaganda site and agents that would still repress the facts, even if at a preconscious opportunist level.”

Unless the West comes clean about ISIS and admits to complicity in the gigantic mistake of creating and sustaining it; and unless it unequivocally demands that Turkey cease providing a lifeline to ISIS – there is no hope that the killing and destruction inflicted on Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Lebanon and even in the heart of Europe, will cease anytime soon.

This article is another piece in the jigsaw. It provides us with crucial information that enables us to see through the fog surrounding the mysterious links between the US, Israel, Turkey, and the world’s most fanatical terrorist organization: ISIS, ISIL, Islamic State or Daesh. ISISfedCIAmeme

This was definitely not supposed to happen. It seems that an Israeli military man with the rank of colonel was “caught with IS pants down.” By that I mean he was captured amid a gaggle of so-called IS–or Islamic State or ISIS or DAESH depending on your preference–terrorists, by soldiers of the Iraqi army. Under interrogation by the Iraqi intelligence he apparently said a lot regarding the role of Netanyahu’s IDF in supporting IS.

In late October an Iranian news agency, quoting a senior Iraqi intelligence officer, reported the capture of an Israeli army colonel, named Yusi Oulen Shahak, reportedly related to the ISIS Golani Battalion operating in Iraq in the Salahuddin front. In a statement to Iran’s semi-official Fars News Agency a Commander of the Iraqi Army stated, “The security and popular forces have held captive an Israeli colonel.”

He added that the IDF colonel “had participated in the Takfiri ISIL group’s terrorist operations.” He said the colonel was arrested together with a number of ISIL or IS terrorists, giving the details: “The Israeli colonel’s name is Yusi Oulen Shahak and is ranked colonel in Golani Brigade… with the security and military code of Re34356578765az231434.”

Why Israel?

Ever since the beginning of Russia’s very effective IS bombing of select targets in Syria on September 30, details of the very dirty role of not only Washington, but also NATO member Turkey under President Erdogan, Qatar and other states has come into the sunlight for the first time.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that at least a faction in the Obama Administration has played a very dirty behind-the-scenes role in supporting IS in order to advance the removal of Syrian President Bashar al Assad and pave the way for what inevitably would be a Libya-style chaos and destruction which would make the present Syrian refugee crisis in Europe a mere warmup by comparison

The “pro-IS faction” in Washington includes the so-called neo-conservatives centered around disgraced former CIA head and executioner of the Iraqi “surge” General David Petraeus. It also includes US General John R. Allen, who since September 2014 had served as President Obama’s Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) and, until she resigned in February 2013, it included Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Significantly, General John Allen, an unceasing advocate of a US-led “No Fly Zone” inside Syria along the border to Turkey, something President Obama refused, was relieved of his post on 23 October, 2015. That was shortly after launch of the highly-effective Russian strikes on Syrian IS and Al Qaeda’s Al Nusra Front terrorist sites changed the entire situation in the geopolitical picture of Syria and the entire Middle East.

UN Reports cites Israel

That Netanyahu’s Likud and the Israeli military work closely with Washington’s neo-conservative war-hawks is well-established, as is the vehement opposition of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. Israel regards the Iranian-backed Shi’a Islamist militant group, Hezbollah, based in Lebanon, as arch foe. Hezbollah has been actively fighting alongside the Syrian Army against ISIS in Syria. General Allen’s strategy of “bombings of ISIS” since he was placed in charge of the operation in September 2014, as Russia’s Putin and Foreign Minister Lavrov have repeatedly pointed out, far from destroying ISIS in Syria, had vastly expanded their territorial control of the country. Now it becomes clear that that was precisely the intent of Allen and the Washington war faction.

Since at least 2013 Israeli military have also openly bombed what they claim were Hezbollah targets inside Syria. Investigation revealed that in fact Israel was hitting Syrian military and Hezbollah targets who are valiantly fighting against ISIS and other terrorists.

De facto thereby Israel was actually helping ISIS, like General John Allen’s year-long “anti-ISIS” bombings.

That a faction in the Pentagon has secretly worked behind-the-scenes to train, arm and finance what today is called ISIS or IS in Syria is now a matter of open record.

In August 2012, a Pentagon document classified “Secret,” later declassified under pressure of the US NGO Judicial Watch, detailed precisely the emergence of what became the Islamic State or ISIS emerging from the Islamic State in Iraq, then an Al Qaeda affiliate.

The Pentagon document stated, “…there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition [to Assad-w.e.] want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).”

The supporting powers to the opposition in 2012 then included Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the USA and behind-the-scenes, Netanyahu’s Israel.

Precisely this creation of a “Salafist Principality in eastern Syria,” today’s territory of ISIL or IS, was the agenda of Petraeus, General Allen and others in Washington to destroy Assad. It’s what put the Obama Administration at loggerhead with Russia, China and Iran over the bizarre US demand Assad must first go before ISIS can be destroyed.

Now the game is in the open for the world to see Washington’s duplicity in backing what the Russian’s accurately call “moderate terrorists” against a duly-elected Assad. That Israel is also in the midst of this rats’ nest of opposition terrorist forces in Syria was confirmed in a recent UN report.

What the report did not mention was WHY Israeli IDF military would have such a passionate interest in Syria, especially Syria’s Golan Heights.

Why Israel wants Assad Out

In December, 2014 the Jerusalem Post in Israel reported the findings of a largely ignored, and politically explosive report detailing UN sightings of Israeli military together with ISIS terrorist combatants. The UN peacekeeping force, UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), stationed since 1974 along the Golan Heights border between Syria and Israel, revealed that . . .

Israel had been working closely with Syrian opposition terrorists, including Al Qaeda’s Al Nusra Front and IS in the Golan Heights, and “kept close contact over the past 18 months.” The report was submitted to the UN Security Council. Mainstream media in the US and West buried the explosive findings.

The UN documents showed that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were maintaining regular contact with members of the so-called Islamic State since May of 2013. The IDF stated that this was only for medical care for civilians, but the deception was broken when the UNDOF observers identified direct contact between IDF forces and ISIS soldiers, including giving medical care to ISIS fighters. Observations even included the transfer of two crates from the IDF to ISIS forces, the contents of which have not been confirmed.

The UNDOF was created by a May, 1974 UN Security Council Resolution No. 350 in the wake of tensions from the October 1973 Yom Kippur War between Syria and Israel. It established a buffer zone between Israel and Syria’s Golan Heights according to the 1974 Disengagement of Forces Agreement, to be governed and policed by the Syrian authorities. No military forces other than UNDOF are permitted within it. Today it has 1,200 observers.

Since 2013 and the escalation of Israeli attacks on Syria along the Golan Heights, claiming pursuit of “Hezbollah terrorists,” the UNDOF itself has been subject to massive attacks by ISIS or Al Qaeda’s Al Nusra Front terrorists in the Golan Heights for the first time since 1974, of kidnappings, of killings, of theft of UN weapons and ammunition, vehicles and other assets, and the looting and destruction of facilities. Someone obviously does not want UNDOF to remain policing the Golan Heights.

Israel and Golan Heights Oil

In his November 9 White House meeting with US President Obama, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu asked Washington to reconsider the fact that since the 1967 Six-Days’ War between Israel and the Arab countries, Israel has illegally occupied a significant part of the Golan Heights. In their meeting, Netanyahu, apparently without success, called on Obama to back formal Israeli annexation of the illegally-occupied Golan Heights, claiming that the absence of a functioning Syrian government “allows for different thinking” concerning the future status of the strategically important area.

Of course Netanyahu did not address in any honest way how Israeli IDF and other forces had been responsible for the absence of a functioning Syrian government by their support for ISIS and Al Nusra Front of Al Qaeda.

In 2013, when UNDOF began to document increasing contact between Israeli military and IS and Al Qaeda along the Golan Heights, a little-known Newark, New Jersey oil company, Genie Energy, with an Israeli daughter company, Afek Oil & Gas, began also moving into Golan Heights with permission of the Netanyahu government to explore for oil. That same year Israeli military engineers overhauled the forty-five mile border fence with Syria, replacing it with a steel barricade that included barbed wire, touch sensors, motion detectors, infrared cameras, and ground radar, putting it on par with the Wall Israel has constructed in the West Bank.

Interestingly enough, on October 8, Yuval Bartov, chief geologist from Genie Energy’s Israeli subsidiary, Afek Oil & Gas, told Israel’s Channel 2 TV that his company had found a major oil reservoir on the Golan Heights: “We’ve found an oil stratum 350 meters thick in the southern Golan Heights. On average worldwide, strata are 20 to 30 meters thick, and this is 10 times as large as that, so we are talking about significant quantities.”

As I noted in an earlier article, the International Advisory Board of Genie Energy includes such notorious names as Dick Cheney, former CIA head and infamous neo-con James Woolsey, Jacob Lord Rothschild and others.

Of course no reasonable person in their right mind would suggest there might be a link between Israeli military dealings with the ISIS and other anti-Assad terrorists in Syria, especially in the Golan Heights, and the oil find of Genie Energy in the same place, and with Netanyahu’s latest Golan Heights “rethink” appeal to Obama. That would smell too much like “conspiracy theory” and all reasonable people know conspiracies don’t exist, only coincidences.

In fact, to paraphrase the immortal words of Brad Pitt in the role of West Virginia First Lieutenant Aldo Raine in the final scene of Tarantino’s brilliant film, Inglorious Basterds, it seems that ‘Ol Netanyahu and his pecker-suckin pals in the IDF and Mossad just got caught with their hands in a very dirty cookie jar in Syria.

A Battle With No Front
November 14, 2015 / Gilad Atzmon

By Gilad Atzmon

Yesterday morning, the news was broadcast of extensive ‘heroic’ allied drone attacks in Iraq and Syria in support of the battle for Sinjar. We also learned about the assassination of Jihadi John. We were told some revenge might be on the way. As promised, last night Paris was bathing in blood.

Welcome to World War III – a global conflict with unlimited battlefronts. We, as people of the world, are all caught in the middle in this disaster. We see that our universe is crumbling, we want peace, yet we don’t even know who the enemy is.

For some of us, this recent escalation is not a surprising development. We have been writing about it for years. We have been scrutinising the disastrous impact of the matrix of Ziocon immoral interventionist lobbies that have been relentlessly advocating more and more conflicts. The CRIF in Paris, CFI in London and AIPAC in Washington all push for escalation of the battle against Arabs and Muslims in accordance with the Israeli plan for a new Middle East.

We are forced to accept the fact that extremist Muslims are very upset and they can hit hard and in a very short time. Russia saw one of its planes falling out of the sky, killing more than two hundred innocent holiday makers. Paris has again suffered. We must ask, is it necessary? Do we have to live in fear from now on? Is peace an option?

The terror is a message that we have to understand. What is its message? ‘Leave us alone’ is what these homicidal terrorists are trying to tell us. Is that too complicated for the Western subject to take in? ‘Live and let others be,’ is what this is about. The pragmatic implication is obvious. The West must immediately stop serving Israeli and global Zionist interests. We must cease all operations in Arabia and the Mid East. For that to happen, and for a chance for peace, opposition to global Zionism and Israeli lobbying is imperative.

Here is some practical advice; next time Bernard Henri Levy, David Aaronovitch or Alan Dershowitz attempt to sell a new conflict-pack in the name of ‘human rights,’ we should politely advise them that we have learned our lesson – no more wars for Zion. Then, peace may prevail.

THE TAKFIRI GOY GOLEM: ISIS, JABHAT AL-NUSRA, THEIR “ISRAELI” MASTERS AND THE REPACKAGED ZIONIST WAR ON ISLAM by Jonathan Azaziah (Mouqawamah Music EXCLUSIVE)

THE TAKFIRI GOY GOLEM: ISIS, JABHAT AL-NUSRA, THEIR “ISRAELI” MASTERS AND THE REPACKAGED ZIONIST WAR ON ISLAM

by Jonathan Azaziah (Mouqawamah Music EXCLUSIVE)

Apart from the nauseating, reprehensible and oft-repeated “‘Israel’ has a right to exist” meme, it is indubitably certain that there is no propaganda buzz-phrase heard quite as frequently from the duplicitous yaps of vile, yellowbelly liberals as “blowback terrorism”. The “blowback terrorism” theory suggests that terrorists – in this particular instance, those of the Takfiri variety currently represented by the demented likes of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, along with Al-Qaeda before them – are birthed via the womb of asinine Western foreign policy. However, as Mouqawamah Music Managing Editor Assad al-Liftawi so aptly noted (1), the Takfiris aren’t mere “blowback” from Western – and “Israeli” – foreign policy, they *are* Western-“Israeli”-GCC-Turkish foreign policy.

Essentially, what the liberals, in all of their glorious, stomach-churning cowardice, would have their constituencies believe is that Takfiri terror groups like ISIS appear out of nowhere in the wake of haphazardly planned and foolishly executed American and European intervention in the Arab and Islamic worlds. It is a theory that they cling to for dear life not only because the truth is far darker, far more sinister and far more disturbing than they would care to admit, but also due to their own criminal complicity in the destructive conspiracy tearing apart Syria and Iraq. But despite their most studious efforts to ensure that “mum’s the word” on where ISIS and its ideological counterparts *actually* come from, the liberals, who are Zionist-Imperialist Hegemony’s most useful and deceptive gatekeepers, have failed in their task.

Off Comes The Mask of Zion: Mainstream Media Reluctantly Exposes The Takfiris’ Roots

Due to the blatant nature of its illegal and malevolent meddling in the affairs of resistant, sovereign nation-states in the Maghreb and Mashreq, the US-“Israeli” Empire couldn’t keep the proverbial gloves on its dirty hands for long, and even the Jewish-Zionist-dominated mainstream media picked up stories on the true nature behind ISIS in particular and the roots of Takfiri terrorism more broadly speaking, despite its obvious intentions to provide as much as spin and false context as possible. The Sulzberger-family-owned New York Times admitted that the CIA is running guns to rebel forces from Turkey (2), and more importantly, released a mega-bombshell when it noted that there isn’t a secular fighting force in Syria to speak of (3). Also in the pages of the NYT, US President Obama – referred to adoringly by the Zionist Power Configuration’s Chicago division as America’s first Jewish president (4) – made it clear that arming “moderate” rebels was nothing but a fantasy (5). Obama’s deputy, Joe “I Am A Zionist (6)” Biden, blew the whistle on the Empire’s staunch allies in Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates for their pernicious roles in incubating and facilitating the spread of Takfiri fanatics across Bilad al-Sham (7).

Another bombshell was dropped by neocon-mouthpiece The Washington Post, which revealed in a devastating story that a gargantuan contingent of fighters operating under the fictitious “Free ‘Syrian’ Army (FSA)” banner who were trained by imperialist states went off and joined ISIS or Jabhat al-Nusra once their Western-sponsored training sessions were completed (8).  General John Allen, the American regime’s envoy to the recently created “anti-ISIS” international coalition, buried the FSA/“secular” rebel myth further in his confirmation of frequent Nusra-FSA battlefield coordination (9). Reports continue popping up in the mainstream press of US humanitarian aid and other forms of supplies and equipment reaching ISIS, most recently in The Daily Beast (10), a most deplorable Zionist rag. Bottom line is, if “moderate” rebels don’t exist and the FSA was nothing but a media concoction, whom were the United States and its regional and international allies arming? Takfiris, plain and simple; murderous, fanatical Takfiris, many of whom were and are literally mentally unstable (11).

And yet, even the tip of the iceberg remains unscathed. The illegitimate, usurping Zionist entity’s hands, which have been present from the very beginning of the war on Syria in the shadows, going all the way back to 2004 when Mossad and the Zionist-run, Zionist-founded National Endowment For Democracy (NED) began cultivating Syrian opposition groups (12), have now become publically exposed as well, on more fronts than were previously known. The “Israelis” have been intimately involved in training the rebels in Jordan (13). Moreover, as confirmed by former FSA “general” and Jewish “state” quisling Salim Idris, “many, many” Mossad agents are “very active” in Syria (14), accumulating all sorts of intelligence for their plots, including spreading fearmongering amongst the Syrian Druze community in Sweida about the collapse of the Damascus government, solely to generate their support for the potential partition of a southern chunk of Syria (15). Outspoken Likudnik and the usurping Jewish regime’s former ambassador to the US Michael Oren openly declared last year that “Israel” prefers Al-Qaeda to be in power over the Hizbullah-Iran-aligned Syria of Dr. Bashar al-Assad (16), a stance which “Israeli” Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz reiterated this week in the NYT by declaring that the Islamic Republic of Iran is a greater threat than ISIS (17).

The plot thickens still. Veteran Syrian “dissident” – i.e. US-Zionist tool – and founding member of the “Syrian” National Coalition/Council (SNC) Kamal al-Labwani, in an act of treason which cannot be more depraved, offered to give the illegally occupied Golan Heights to the Jewish supremacist regime in exchange for its implementation of a no-fly zone over Syria (18). Sharif as-Safouri, the commander of the Free Syrian Army’s Al-Haramein Battalion, in a Youtube video uploaded this past summer, revealed that he has met with Zionist entity’s intelligence services, obtained weaponry from them and broke down the process of transferring wounded terrorists to IOF field hospitals (19).

Indeed, even the UN has noted that at the very least, dozens of Takfiri terrorists have been treated in the hospitals of the Zionist occupation army (20), with the true numbers likely expected to be in the hundreds, as every week “Israeli” news channels document operations conducted in coordination between “Syrian” oppositionists and IOF (21). War criminal and prime minister of the usurping Jewish entity Benjamin Netanyahu visited one of these advanced field hospitals to consort with its Takfiri patients and governing IOF generals (22), in a true showing of just how much these rebels mean to “Israel”, for the only time the leader of a nation – or in this case, a demonic supremacist entity – visits a battlefield is to boost the morale of the men fighting for his cause, which, in this case, is Zionism.  These hospitals are a hotbed of disgusting Zionist apologia and Takfirism, particularly the Ziv Medical Center in occupied Safad, where rebels openly bash Hizbullah, Iran and Russia and beg Netanyahu to bomb Syria (23).

Beyond the medical treatment, political support and intelligence though, “Israel” is providing arms to the Takfiri rebels in Syria and on top of an undeclared truce that it has with Jabhat al-Nusra (24), its warplanes are serving as Jabhat al-Nusra’s air force in the face of the Syrian Arab Army (25). Amos Yadlin, the former director of Aman and infamously shady intelligence operator who gleefully admitted to the Zionist entity assassinating legendary Hizbullah commander Hajj Imad Mughniyeh and benefitting from Rafik Hariri’s killing (26),  brazenly declared in his typically arrogant tone that, “ISIS is not a significant threat to ‘Israel’ in the near future, and in an odd sense, it even provides some strategic opportunities for ‘Israel (27).”

Hence why the criminal Talmudic maniacs occupying Palestine are providing foodstuffs to the Iraqi division of ISIS (28), as well as giving it advanced weapons (29), and their Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency is gladly allowing Palestinians from the 1948 lands to join its ranks, as this not only allows “Israel” to have a direct role in the recruitment process of ISIS, but it also will prevent those who depart from returning to Palestine, a policy suggested by Jewish occupation regime Tourism Minister Uzi Landau (30). Thus, two strategic goals of the Zionist dragon are fulfilled: its proxy, ISIS, is routinely injected with new Palestinian recruits – which bestows upon the Takfiri terrorist outfit an aura of credibility in the eyes of woefully ignorant Muslims worldwide as it is comprised of persons from the oppressed Palestinian people – and it removes more and more “demographic threats” from the land it continues to colonize and decay with its satanic existence, from the River to the Sea.

With that said, it seriously could not be clearer that ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and other Takfiri gangs, trained by NATO (31) and armed by the Jewish supremacist entity, are not the ragtag “moujahideen” that they try to sell themselves as to the unsuspecting Muslim youth across the globe; they are tools of Zio-Imperialism. And with at least five Britons a week leaving to join ISIS (32) and a French family of eleven departing only two weeks ago to join the Takfiris in Syria (33), it’s also clear that Western regimes aren’t engaging in any efforts whatsoever to curtail pro-ISIS adventurism, despite their boisterous claims to the contrary. Why? Because, to end where we began, and as the facts show, Takfiri terrorism isn’t “blowback” but the very instrument which “Israel”, the West and their marionettes in the region are using to impose their hegemony on states that refuse to bow to Zionist diktat.

Zionist-Takfiri Symbiosis: P2OG, The 2010 Baghdad Cathedral Massacre, SITE, Fake Beheadings and Mossad

While every piece of aforementioned evidence provides a damning portrayal of the Takfiris’ collaborationist identity, one must dig a bit further back in recent history to understand who they are in totality. Any analysis of Takfiri terrorism throughout the Maghreb and Mashreq, most prominently in Iraq, which fails to mention the Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group, better known by its acronym P2OG, is the very embodiment of incompleteness. Largely unknown by most, but tremendously powerful and absolutely essential to the mayhem and horror which have befallen the Arab and Islamic worlds, P2OG, is, in a word, the grandsire of ISIS.

Founded in 2002 by the Defense Science Board, which was run out of the office of Donald Rumsfeld – the shabbos goy front man for the Jewish neocon cabal that controlled the Bush administration, as well as the Jewish-Zionist billionaires Stephen Feinberg and Michael Steinhardt’s mega-corporation Cerberus Global Investments, which was responsible for setting up military bases and camps across then-occupied Iraq (34) – and Iraq War architect and “Full Spectrum Dominance” designer Paul Wolfowitz, P2OG overtly advocated using assassinations, sabotage and deception to stoke the Iraqi people into full-blown civil war. The shadowy, murderous intelligence agency, which worked, and continues to work side-by-side with the evil “Israeli” regime’s Mossad, was the brainchild of Zionist and PNAC (Project For A New American Century) member William J. Schneider Jr., who launched an all-out media blitz to justify the legitimacy and legality of P2OG (35), despite it being the very antithesis of both.

Simply put, P2OG, which remains fully operational and active, was and is creating Takfiri terrorism – and Takfiri terrorists – as a means of justifying increased Western-“Israeli” military-intelligence activity in the region. Without P2OG, the growth of Al-Qaeda in Iraq and like-similar groups would have been mute.  One of the most daring and murderous operations that emerged out of the P2OG-Mossad nexus was the Sayedat al-Najat Cathedral massacre that left almost 60 Iraqis murdered in the mixed Sunni-Shi’a-Christian Karada district of Baghdad on October 31st, 2010. While the mass media reported the atrocity as the handiwork of ISIS’s precursor, the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), a deeper investigation revealed that at the time, ISI wasn’t even operationally functional let alone capable of a special-ops-style assault such as this, and, as confirmed by a US Brigadier General, its alleged leader, Omar al-Baghdadi, was nothing but an invention. What really happened was an intricate Mossad operation, carried out with all of the genocidal “Tel Aviv” regime’s favorite toys, from car bombs to fake passports. As Hizbullah pointed out in the aftermath of the horror, the attack perfectly fit the recurring pattern of Zionism’s regional quest for destabilization and balkanization as well as the age-old “Israeli” plot to foment division between Muslims and Christians (36).

Although no analyst could have picked up on this at the time, four years later, it has also become luminously elucidated that the Sayedat al-Najat Cathedral massacre was designed to plant the ISI/ISIS seed of terror into the minds of the sheepish global masses, to lay the groundwork for its emergence as the most fearsome, most efficient Takfiri terrorist organization ever. However, now, like then, the fate of ISIS is not merely a link to the Zionist entity’s intelligence apparatuses but a front for them. The connection of the Sayedat al-Najat Cathedral massacre to current events is staggering. It was none other than SITE Intelligence Group – run by Rita Katz, an ex-IOF officer, Jewish supremacist fanatic, loathsome Islamophobe, daughter of an “Israeli” spy executed in Iraq and a person who has close ties to the Mossad via her close working relationship with Mossad agent Ben Venzke’s Intel Center – that “broke the story” on the October 31st, 2010 attack in Baghdad’s Karada (36), and it is SITE Intelligence Group once more that has “uncovered” the ISIS beheading videos today (37) which are serving as the false flag pretexts for America’s latest Zionist-induced adventure in the Maghreb and Mashreq. SITE and Intel Center have untouched hegemony over the information flow and sources used by mainstream media regarding “Islamic extremism”, and thus, whenever the mainstream media publishes anything pertaining to this subject matter, it is regurgitating the hasbara of Mossad.

If the SITE connection wasn’t shocking enough, further credence is granted to the factually sound theory of the ISIS beheading videos of James Foley and Steven Sotloff being pretexts for Anglo-Zionist intervention in Iraq and Syria when it is considered that the videos were quite possibly staged. British forensic experts believe that the Foley video is a fraud, citing “camera trickery and slick post-production techniques” as indications of this truth (38), and Al-Jazeera, the Zionist-founded Qatari media giant that has churned out propagandistic report after propagandistic report against Syria from jump street (39), also published a story suggesting the Foley and Sotloff videos were fakes, prior to taking the report down after the uproar it caused (40).

Steven Sotloff’s case is the fishier of the two, one of the utmost bizarreness really, as he wasn’t just American but also “Israeli”, which begs the question: what exactly was he doing in Syria? Moreover, Sotloff’s description as a “journalist” strongly appears to be a cover, as he earned his degree from the Mossad-linked Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya (41). Besides, despite “Israeli” and Jewish community media outlets ascribing the efforts to “friends and family”, who else but the Mossad could have carried out a 150-man operation to scrub Sotloff’s Jewish roots and “Israeli” connections from the web (42)? Due to all of the Zionist monsters’ noted connections to ISIS on the intelligence, political, military and logistical levels, is it possible that Sotloff’s beheading video was a high-level PSYOP that Sotloff himself was engaged in, to further International Jewry’s hegemonic agenda? With so much at stake in the region, the answer is a resounding “yes!”

While some ISIS apologists and sympathizers attempt to whitewash the Takfiri terrorist organization as being hostile to mainstream media, saying the group relies on its own media advisers to deliver its message to the world at large (43), the reality is the polar opposite, and the Takfiri gang’s connections to SITE, the Intel Center, Mossad and P2OG, going back nearly a decade, confirm this as an undeniable truism. Like a twisted, more parasitic version of symbiosis, ISIS doesn’t exist without Zionist support. Indeed, the relationship between “Israel” and ISIS is most comparable to the shark and the remora… the latter latches on to the former for scraps, while the former relies on the latter to do its dirty work and clean up its mess.

Oded Yinon, The Yeor Plan and Operation Oranim Reincarnated: Divide, Conquer and Steal The Water

Seeing ISIS and gaggles of other Takfiri groups rampage through Bilad al-Sham and Bilad al-Rafidayn, one cannot help but feel like the Jewish supremacist regime’s plan to break up the entire Arab-Islamic world into smaller, weaker, ethno-religious statelets and then take control over the region’s oil, gas and most especially water resources, written in 1982 by “Israeli” foreign policy advisor Oded Yinon and entitled “A Strategy For ‘Israel’ In The 1980s” (44), is being executed in real time. And that’s because it is. Unable to militarily impose its hegemony on the Arab-Islamic world directly, the Zionist entity, which strives to rule over a region which stretches from Egypt’s Nile to Iraq’s Euphrates in its very own Jewish Imperium, sought a different route, this time via proxy.

As Hizbullah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah eloquently pointed out in a July 2012 speech, since the Lebanese Islamic Resistance achieved victory over “Israel” in the 2006 July War with Syrian weapons and logistics, the usurping Halakhic regime has been working on a new military strategy to destroy the Syrian Arab Army (45), and by definition of their roles in the Resistance Axis, Hizbullah and Iran. ISIS is that new strategy. In the wake of Al-Naksa, after “Israel” conquered the rest of Palestine, Egypt’s Sinai and Syria’s Golan Heights (Al-Jaulan), Zionist entity General Aaron Yariv launched a study into how to establish a zone of “hydraulic security” which would put all of Lebanon and Syria’s water resources under the absolute control of “Tel Aviv”. During the genocidal Jewish entity’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon, now deceased war criminal Ariel Sharon launched an operation within an operation, called “Oranim”, to bring this “hydraulic security” zone to fruition and destroy Syria militarily in the process. “Oranim” was a failure however, as the Syrian Arab Army resisted and derailed the scheme (46).

This failure did not put an end to the Zionists’ dreams though. Quite to the contrary. The Yinon Plan and Oranim remain very much at the forefront of the illegitimate Jewish entity’s political and strategic planning, it plainly realized that the implementation of each of these stratagems would be impossible without a shift in battlefield tactics.

Reflecting this are the highly publicized ISIS takeovers and attacks on waterways and dams in both Iraq and Syria, which aren’t being carried out for the Takfiri terrorist group’s own benefit, but for their Judaic masters’ century-old objectives. The Jewish “state” is in desperate need of water as its filthy settlers are either consuming and consuming until lands are bled dry, or polluting springs and wells to the point of no return. There is another “Tel Aviv” plot, the Yeor Plan, concocted in 1974 to see Nile water diverted from Egypt’s northern Sinai region through tunnels underneath the Suez Canal and ultimately, through the illegally besieged Gaza Strip into al-Naqab, referred to by occupying “Israeli” Jews as the “Negev”. The mafia-esque Talmudic enclave has waged water wars against Egypt, Sudan and Libya in the name of this plan (47), and now, using ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and their Takfiri brethren as shock troops, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq can be added to the Yeor-Yinon-Oranim 2.0 file as well.

In Jewish folklore, the Golem is a creature made of clay and brought to life through Kabbalistic rituals and Hebrew incantations. The purpose of the creature is to take orders from its rabbinical creators, defend Jews and protect the interests of Jews. Can it be argued, really, that the Takfiris aren’t such creatures? They owe their very existence to the Jewish “state” and its dangerous, Gentile-hating, rabbinically-driven, supremacist intelligence services, and every action that they embroil themselves in, from one end of the region to the other, is for the benefit of “Israel”. And just like the Golem of Jewish folklore, if Zionism was to act as a rabbi ending his spell over his clay puppet and pull its support from the Takfiris, they would crumble and fade away into nothingness. ISIS should change its name to IGGSIS: “Israel’s” Goy Golem in Iraq and Syria.

Conclusion: Netanyahu, Al-Qaeda’s Stale Brand Name, GWOT’s Rejuvenation and Wahhabi-Takfirism’s Jewish Character

The 2001 September 11th terrorist attacks, Jewish-Zionist-orchestrated from soup to nuts, from the operation itself to the elephantine benefits that the “Israeli” regime reaped in its aftermath (48), cannot be comprehended without the acknowledgment that they were, first and foremost, a declaration of war on Islam. Hostility towards Islam is something that is embedded in the very core of Judaism – and obviously, Zionism, which is Judaism manifested geopolitically – and it extends outwards to every fiber of its ideological makeup. Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), the Holy Prophet of Islam, is viewed by the rabbinate as a “madman (49).” Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) and Prophet Jesus the Messiah (A.S.) have been linked together in degradation by Zohar III 282a of the Kabbalah, which refers to them as “dead dogs” who are buried in the realm of demons with worms, donkeys, dirt and vermin all around them (50). Additionally, the rabbinate views the Ishmaelite-Amalekite nation, the Arabs (and the Muslim Ummah as a whole, 250 million of which are Arabs), as its primary enemy. Therefore, simply by being an Arab, Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), by rabbinical edict, is the “spawn of Satan (51).”

The origins of the hatred for Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) began with a man seemingly omnipresent in Jewish affairs, haNesher haGadol, ‘the great eagle’ Maimonides, who believed the Holy Prophet of Islam to be a “maniac” and penned contempt-filled laws against Muslims which requires the Jew to diminish and destroy them (52). While inserting many escape clauses into his work and presenting a great deal of decoy texts to convince the goyim that he solemnly respected Muslims, the writings of Maimonides reserved only for “the chosen” were nothing short of homicidal towards believers in Islam, with the most poisonous tidbits reserved for Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) himself (53). What is most revealing of Maimonides’ feelings on Islam is that behind the hatred and incitement is an abyssal fear of it, as he swore in his ‘Epistle to Yemen,’ chilling indeed, “Islam is the cruelest and most implacable enemy that the Jewish people have faced in their entire history (54).” Taking this declaration and applying it to the current geopolitical state of affairs, with Maimonides being a rabbinical figure held close to the hearts of all Jews in general and Jewish extremists distinctively, the same Jewish extremists behind the slaughterous PNAC-Zionist wars destroying the Islamic world domino by domino, the convergence of political directives and spiritual motivations is illuminated: Zionism must destroy Islam so the ‘divine’ rabbinate can continue flourishing as global domineers.

And since Islam cannot be destroyed physically, nor can its Book, the Holy Qur’an, be assailed, as ALLAH (SWT) promised to preserve it in the 15th Surah’s 9th Ayah, International Zionism must then tarnish Islam’s image with the most dangerous weapon it has in its “chosenite” arsenal: the mass media, which, since Mossad’s false flag masterpiece on 9/11, has been pumping out piece after piece, via television, print and the internet, depicting Muslims as deranged, barbaric, irrational extremists hellbent on destroying the Western world. It is within this context that “Israeli” Prime Minister and butcher of Gaza Benjamin Netanyahu told a presidential conference in the usurping entity in June 2012 that “militant Islam” wouldn’t be defeated until the end of century (55). The Jewish gangster regime occupying Palestine, and its like-minded coreligionists across the planet, cannot adhere to the warning of their “great sage” Maimonides and wage a 100-year war against Islam if the “enemy” being targeted remains the same. The hasbara will grow stagnant and the minds of the world’s population will become less easier to control.

And with the brand name of Al-Qaeda growing stale in the wake of many of its operatives, i.e. Mossad-CIA-MI6 assets, being neutralized in Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan, occupied Afghanistan and elsewhere — most notably Osama Bin Laden, whose “death” was even more of a sham than the Foley and Sotloff beheading videos – it was time for the Zionists to revitalize their Global War On Terror (GWOT). Enter the fanatics of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, whom breathed new life into GWOT – which would die in an instant without an influx of “Muslims” behaving malevolently to spread propaganda about — and were basically Al-Qaeda on steroids; flashier, glossier, more violent and not hostile to the Jewish supremacist entity even in the slightest.

Instead, these new Takfiri players adhere to the disgustingly sectarian ideological Salafi-Wahhabi tenet of “Fighting nearby apostates is more important than fighting faraway infidels”, and even more despicable, “Shias are more dangerous than Jews (56).” As nonsensical as it is, according to ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, the usurping Zionist disease isn’t responsible for the region’s decay, the Shi’a – and their allies – are, and this is why, in unblemished collusion with the Jewish occupation entity’s designs on the region, the Takfiris are in perpetual attack mode against Hizbullah, Iran, Syria, Iraq and now, with the Zionist-aligned House of Saud sanctioning suicide attacks against the Houthis (57), Yemen too.

This hateful, Zionist-backed ideology spewed and belched by the Takfiris is not in the same universe as Islam however, and it is not just important but existentially critical to make the distinction between the two, for the very linkage of Islam with Wahhabi-Takfirism is a crime against the former and an insult to its inherent purity, truthfulness and righteousness.

What Wahhabi-Takfirism most closely resembles is in fact Judaism. Like Judaism, which rejects the humanity of all other persons as goyim, that is, cattle, while upholding the Jew as “God’s” gift to the universe and which strives to keep the Jew separate from the “inferior” goy, Wahhabi-Takfirism is intolerant to everyone and everything which doesn’t submit to its own perverted line of thinking, be they Sunnis, Shi’a, Sufis, Christians, Yazidis or anyone else. Also like the Jews, who, since the very first prophet they came into contact with, have undermined those prophets, slandered those prophets once they passed away and sinned against those prophets and ALLAH (SWT) by changing the holy revelations and scriptures to better suit their hedonistic, demonic ways, ISIS wants to change the Qur’an as it views some verses as “incorrect” and “distorted (58)”. In another example of blatant opposition to Islam, its love for knowledge and the civilizational advancements that it inspired, ISIS has banned philosophy and chemistry in Raqqa (59).

Within the first issue of “Dabiq”, ISIS’s English propaganda rag, in the section entitled “From Hijrah to Khilafah”, the Takfiri psychopaths make it clear that their strategy is one completely *devoid* of Divine guidance and totally immersed in lawlessness. ISIS says its terrorist fighters tore apart Iraq by unleashing “maximum chaos and targeting apostates of all different backgrounds”. This sounds eerily familiar to the Jews’ toxic Talmud which provides a multitude of justifications for murder, hatred and other debauched acts. In BT Kiddushin 66a, one will find this declaration that puts all of the genocidal Zionist wars of aggression into one hell of a perspective, “The best of the gentiles: kill him (60).” For world Jewry to reach its rabbinically-ordained position as globe holders, hatred for the enemy, the goyim, had to be religiously institutionalized to absolve Jews from wrongdoing in any act of subterfuge that they potentially engage in. This is confirmed by BT Pesahim 113b, “Hating your enemy {goyim} is permitted, even commanded (61).”

All of the Zionist rabbis within IOF draw their authoritative power from this verse, sending their fanatical followers into the olive groves, gardens, valleys and hills of holy Arab-Islamic-Christian land to murder innocents. According to BT Baba Bathra 10b however, there are no Arab (or non-Jewish in general) innocents, “The deeds of Israel are righteous, but the gentiles are capable only of sinning.” No matter how many crimes are committed or malevolence is engaged in by a rabbinic ‘sage’ or his followers, it is just dandy. BT Hagigah 27a confirms none of them will ever go to hell. And if Jewish-Zionist power is resisted, and the goyim fight back, BT Sanhedrin 58b demands vengeance, “A gentile who strikes a Jew deserves death. Striking a Jew is in God’s eyes an assault on the Divine Presence (62).” Is it now grasped why World Zionism hates Hizbullah, Iran, Syria, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the PFLP and others of the same resistant mentality so viscerally?

The frightening similarities between Judaism-Zionism and Wahhabi-Takfirism aren’t as bizarre or ironic as one may think. In fact, there is an uncomplicated, albeit incredibly well-hidden explanation behind the likenesses. As revealed by the Iraqi security services in a damning, earth-shattering intelligence report, Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhab, the founder of Wahhabi-Takfirism, and the House of Saud, his financial benefactors and greatest allies, are all descendants of the Dönmeh, a fanatical Jewish sect originally from Turkey which professed faith in Islam in public while secretly practicing the more mystical, Kabbalistic aspects of Judaism and which was founded by Jewish false messiah Shabbatai Zevi. Abdul-Wahhab’s grandfather was Tjen Shulman, a member of Basra’s Dönmeh-descended Jewish community. The first Saudi monarch, Abdul Aziz ibn Saud, was a descendant of the Jewish merchant Mordechai bin Ibrahim bin Moishe, whose roots were also in Basra (63). Therefore, Wahhabi-Takfirism isn’t just *like* Judaism, it *is* Judaism, and it is disgracefully using Islam as its Mask of Zion.

By granting its Takfiri offspring such an extravagant amount of geopolitical significance, International Jewry has given those resisting its tyranny one more tentacle to be preoccupied with. Unbeknownst to the Zionists however is that those defying its suffocating hegemony over humanity have blown the lid off its little secret and they’re working tirelessly to keep it that way. Takfirism is Judaism-Zionism and vice versa, and no amount of hasbara in the world can reverse what has now been ripped out from under the rug, for the entire globe to see.

Through the exposé of ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and company’s military-intelligence-political connections to “Israel” and NATO, as well as the Takfiris’ historical and ideological Jewish roots, a new era has begun in defense of Islam and in rejection of the US-“Israeli” Empire. With the truth as our weapon, the destruction of IGGSIS, “Israel’s” Goy Golem in Iraq and Syria, will not just deliver a blow to Operation Yeor-Yinon-Oranim 2.0, but it will also bring humans one step closer to coming to grips with the fact that there is no greater threat to the earth than Judeo-Zio-Imperialism, for if Wahhabi-Takfirism is just its spawn, what lies at its Judaic core must be, by virtue of its essence, infinitely more hideous and iniquitous. Don’t get it twisted though, something with such a nature, no matter how powerful it may become – and Organized Jewry is undoubtedly the globe’s most influential geopolitical force – has no other fate but collapse, as darkness must always face the light. May the faithful, disciplined and courageous hasten the sunrise.

The Devil in the Details – Netanyahu’s 100 Year War against ‘Militant’ Islam as the Death Blow to Western Civilization

 By 

Mark Glenn

October 23, 2014

Whatsupic — The most dangerous thing about Benjamin Netanyahu –and no one should make the mistake of thinking he’s anything otherwise– is that he appears ‘normal’ by human standards. He speaks with a ‘human’ voice, seems to have all the required ‘human’ hardware and behaviorisms and in general is able to pass muster in his daily interactions with others. Best guess is that he has skin rather than scales, eyelids rather than slits, and doesn’t slither on his belly from point A to point B…

Netanyahu 400

The truth however is that all of this ‘humanism’ –for lack of a better word– attributed to/associated with Netanyahu is just an illusion of sorts, and the world –for the sake of its own collective life and limb– would be best served by turning a blind eye and deaf ear towards black magic such as this.

 Despite a few outward superficialities, there is nothing ‘human’ about ‘Bibi’, nor about those who hold membership in his exclusive street gang.

Like the ravenous wolf dressed as the harmless old lady in the childrens’ story, his true nature is something else entirely…Otherworldly and subterranean…A living, breathing nightmare, oceans-deep with rich, horrific detail or some dark, foreboding chapter out of either Poe or Stephen King. A wild animal in an expensive suit, ‘King Bibi’ is the stuff of Apocalyptic warnings from centuries past, where prophets went mad forecasting a future time of monsters in human form prowling about the world and remaking it into something more to their liking–soaked in blood, scorched with fire and teaming with every type of human suffering imaginable…The type that causes Satan to beam with hopeful pride while simultaneously giving God worry lines and chest pains, he’s the ‘human’ equivalent of the rabid canine that the local sheriff is periodically called out to shoot for the sake of a terrified townspeople. Better suited for either a zoo or a laboratory, specimens like Netanyahu are those whose deeds eventually become so record-breakingly evil in their size and scale that they become permanently burned into the collective memory of man like some mental scar that is passed down generation after generation. He’s the ‘businessman’ whose private deal with the devil takes place each morning while staring into the mirror, a ‘true believer’ in the most dangerous sense of the word, similar to the cyborg featured in The Terminator films who doesn’t need to be pushed or prodded when it comes to inflicting violence against innocent people, given that the program loaded onto his mental/spiritual hard drive is write-protected and impervious to any outside tampering.

This – his ability to blend in with his human surroundings and thus escape detection – is singularly the most important component making him the danger to the civilized world that he is. A beast walking on 2 legs, it is his chameleonesque ability to replicate the outward appearance of humanness that has provided him with the keys to the kingdom and membership to a club where he does not belong, a tragedy due more to the cooperative blindness of his soon-to-be victims rather than to any curse from heaven or quirk of fate.

But besides the truly terrible nature of his nature making him the clear and present danger that he is, it is all the extra baggage he carries with him that portends the worst. While it’s true that humanity has never suffered a shortage of anti-social individuals with ‘bad attitudes’, nevertheless given their lack of resources and inferior positioning on the economic and political chessboard means that the misery they’re able to inflict on large numbers of people is for the most part mitigated.

Obviously not so with Netanyahu. Head of the largest crime family in human history, with life-or-death power over not just millions, but indeed billions of people arising out of the stranglehold he and his cousins maintain over economics, media and politics, he keeps a terrified world in line with the threat of lighting off some (or all) of the 400 nukes that he and his loyal disciples have smuggled into every world capital over the course of the last several decades. Leaders from every country – from the U.S. to the U.K. to the U.A.E. – doubtless have had it explained to them in infallibly explicit language that as far as he and his demands are concerned, every request – be it money, political protection or increased war for Israel’s benefit – is an offer that no one can refuse, for the simple reason that when Bibi hears the word ‘no’, bad things happen. Economies crash. Bombs blow up at marathon events. Planes fly into skyscrapers or computer systems that manage and maintain critical infrastructure functions such as powergrid, clean water, or those preventing meltdowns at nuclear powerplants go haywire.

But again, more dangerous than Netanyahu’s inherently violent, vicious and volcanic nature (paired with his ability to make good on the Judaic voodoo he threatens from time to time) is the manner by which he is misunderstood by most of his would-be victims. Rather than being feared for the deadly, highly-venomous viper that he is, instead he is mocked, jeered, ridiculed, made the butt of jokes and in general taken no more seriously than one of the highly-neurotic characters featured on the television series Seinfeld. In an obviously clear, unequivocal warning to the ‘civilized’ world concerning what kind of unpleasant fate awaits mankind if his demands are not met, he personally orders and oversees – in broad daylight – the butchering of more than 2,000 human beings in Gaza and yet few hear or understand the language being used… Standing before the United Nations and on full display before 14 billion eyes and ears the world over he wields cartoon drawings conveying his personal promise to incinerate every square inch of God’s green earth unless 75 million Iranians are mass-murdered in a real-life/real-time/real-deal re-enactment of the Judaic blood-festival Purim, and rather than this threat being recognized for what it is, instead it is treated like stand-up comedy appearing on an episode of Saturday Night Live. With obvious sneering and condescension, pundits and commentators around the world snicker at the entire spectacle, not realizing that as they do so, a 200 megaton gun is being pointed at their heads and that in the end – barring some act of God – Nutty Netty will be the one having the last laugh the moment he lights the fuse and walks away.

What can be said about all of this, other than ‘it is what it is…’ Rarely has any tidal wave of evil – in this case, psychopaths hijacking ships of state and deliberately steering them over the cliff and into the abyss – beset mankind throughout history where there weren’t clear warning signs that trouble was coming. Mother Nature may indeed be unpredictable when it comes to her oftentimes temperamental mood swings, but as far as the dark side of human nature goes, more often than not the tic-tic-ticking sound of a human time bomb about to go off is hard to avoid hearing.

Nevertheless, as history – and especially present day events – has all-too-tragically shown, people can be convinced (seduced) into believing that the tic-tic-ticking sound they clearly hear is but a figment of their imagination, thus giving otherworldly/subterranean creatures such as Netanyahu the passive cooperation they need in conjuring forth their particular brand of murder and mayhem. Few and far between are those willing to trust what their common sense tells them and recognize the danger for what it is vs. those multitudes who ignore the thunderous noise of the onrushing waters until it is upon them and there is no escaping it.

The difference now of course is that the waters in question are deeper, faster and more lethal. Never before in human history has so much violent, Apocalyptic power resided in the hands of so few people who were free to do so much damage with so little effort.

And – just like his dangerous nature that should not be underestimated – neither should people underestimate the length and breadth to which Netanyahu plans to take all of this at days’ end, an awareness that can only begin with knowing that the one thing which he does best and loves the most is war.

Just as the profile of some infamous crime lord is incomplete without including background scenery such as money laundering, prostitution, drugs, bribery, murder, etc, likewise an accurate accounting of Benjamin Netanyahu remains informationally anemic without mentioning his abnormal appetite for state-sponsored mass-murder, otherwise known as war. Simply stated, take this aspect out of any discussion featuring Netanyahu and there is nothing left to discuss.

For ‘Bibi’ – the latest incarnation in a long line of King David wannabes – war is his beating heart, (if he has one) his lifeblood (if he has any) and the electrical current that powers his mental functions, if indeed any exist. Envisioning himself the great, great grandson of biblical warrior kings such as Moses, Joshua et al, who ‘made their bones’ (at least as recounted within the pages of Jewish ‘holy’ texts such as Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Numbers, etc) by fulfilling the commands of Yahweh to ‘slaughter them all and utterly destroy them’ and to ‘save nothing alive that breathes’ and all the rest of the biblical madness which Israel uses in justifying the Gentile-cide that she perpetrates in the region, war on behalf of the Jewish state is as sacred to Netanyahu as Holy Communion is to Catholics or Salat is to Muslims. Whereas within the ‘civilized’ world, war is considered a pestilence and is viewed only through the lenses of dread, regret, reluctance, reservation, etc, for Netanyahu war is playtime, and the various killing fields over which he has personally presided – from Gaza to Syria to Iraq and beyond – are his playgrounds. While the sights and sounds of deliberately inflicted human suffering and carnage cause civilized others to recoil in horror, for Bibi and co. they are a source of spiritual electrification, similar in many respects to the excitement felt by prospectors once gold has been found. Like the High Priest featured in Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto who rouses the fervor of his flock to a state of religious hyper-mania by cutting out the living, beating hearts of innocent human victims, so too do Netanyahu and his fellow acolytes achieve the same type of psychological climax in knowing that the god of Israel – as depicted within the various ‘holy’ books of Judaism – is appeased and satiated with the rivers of blood shed in his honor.

Therefore, when he talks about Iran being destroyed, what he means is I-R-A-N  B-E-I-N-G  D-E-S-T-R-O-Y-E-D, brick by brick, bone by bone… Likewise Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, town after town, city after city, country after country and – if necessary – continent after continent, wherever the religiously-mandated ritual of Gentile-cide may be practiced, as if all of it were some type of installment plan attached to a debt that – according to the accounting firm of Israel, Israel and Israel – can never be paid off.

The fact that Netanyahu is a ‘purest’ when it comes to the business of Armageddon – and no one should make the mistake of thinking he is anything otherwise – is clearly evident in the various snarlings and growlings attributed to him over the years but which have been mischaracterized by the Gentile world as meaningless political meanderings with no deeper implications attached. Indeed, just as with the infamous ‘bomb-gonna-go-boom’ cartoonery he utilized at the UN General Assembly in 2012 conveying the threat of Judaically-induced holocaust against Gentiledom if his demands regarding war with Iran and others are not met, likewise have there been numerous other instances where Mr. 666 talks with the mouth of a man but speaks the language of the beast.

And if ever there were an instance where the world should have perked up its ears and honed in on that tic-tic-ticking sound of a human timebomb about to blow, it was in June of 2012, a mere few months prior to his well-known incident at the UN, where Netanyahu, like some crime boss giving orders to his assembled caporegimes, addressed a gathering of pro-Zionist operatives in the U.S. via telecom and discussed the manner by which ‘militant Islam’ would be defeated by the end of the 21st century.

Not by the end of the year or end of the decade, but end of the century.

For those who don’t get the math here, what this means is that a war that began when the 21st century was a mere newborn baby still in diapers, a war that’s already destroyed the lives of millions of people, decimated the global economy, stopped human progress dead in its tracks and set 1.5 billion Christians and 1.5 billion Muslims (collectively making up nearly 1/2 of the world’s population) at each others’ throats is – according to Netanyahu’s timetable – ‘jes gettin’ warmed up,’ with another 88 years to go.

And let no one be fooled by his use of the term ‘militant’ as a qualifying adjective in describing Islam. Like his bomb cartoon brandished at the UN, this was typical gangsterese on his part, i.e. saying one thing but meaning another… Rabbinical sleight-of-hand and a spell of sorts meant to hypnotize the collective Gentile mind and prevent it from understanding what kind of devastating Judaic black magic he and his fellow wizards have cooked up in their caldron of Zionist intrigue.

His use of the term ‘militant’ – meant to materialize in the Gentile mind imagery of ISIS, ISIL, Al Qaeda, etc – in actuality is an all-encompassing term meaning any and all followers of Islam. To Netanyahu and co, the ‘militant’ Muslim is the Palestinian boy who throws rocks at IDF terrorists who just shot his mother and baby sister in cold blood… It is the young Iraqi woman who – despite seeing her country obliterated after 20 years of Israeli-engineered war, nevertheless – insists upon maintaining her chastity and wearing her hijab… It is nations such as Iran, Syria, Libya (before its destruction) and others who insist upon remaining sovereign, stable countries, as opposed to those such as Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia et al who have surrendered their necks over to the vampire and in the process become mere handpuppets to global Zionist designs.

In short, to Netanyahu (and to those who share his vision of the future) ‘militant’ Islam is any organized barrier – spiritual, political, economic, social or moral – to the same deadly Z-Ebola contagion that has decimated the nations of the ‘Christian’ West. Just as all social order within the once-vibrant Christian civilizations has been transformed into an extended real-life/real-time/real-deal re-enactment of The Walking Dead as a direct result of the town well being poisoned with the toxic, fecal-laden moral sludge flowing out of the synagogue, so too is this the only form of Islam that Netanyahu and co. find ‘acceptable’. As carriers of a deadly spiritual virus that cannot exist in a sterile, anti-biotic environment, Netanyahu and co. understand that Judaism and Islam occupying the same space on this late, great planet earth is simply not possible. Whereas Christianity – given its fatal attachment to the same Torah that serves as the beating heart and lifeblood of the entire Judaic structure – provides organized Zionist interests a ‘back door’ through which hackers may surreptitiously enter and hijack the religion based upon the teachings and personhood of Jesus Christ for their own criminal purposes, Islam however contains no such liabilities. In Islam, there is no depiction and celebration of founding fathers such as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Joshua, et al being thieves, liars, murderers, usurers, war criminals, etc, in the same manner by which they are represented in Judeo-Christianity and which forms the basis upon which the entire Zionist narrative rests.

Therefore, given that no such depictions exist within Islam that can be used in penetrating, subjugating, degenerating, mutating, debaucherizing and bastardizing it so as to bring it ‘into the fold’ as a cooperative family member alongside Judeo-Christianity, the only way it can be dealt with is through war.

The devoted followers of Judaism – understanding that it is an all-or-nothing paradigm that has no place in its lexicon for ideas such as ‘live and let live’ – understand therefore that Islam cannot be permitted to continue as a pure and incorrupt ideology, but must instead either be made sick and weak through a century of war so as to mitigate its influence in world affairs or else be eradicated from the planet in its entirety.

And this, the Apocalyptic, far-reaching implications of Netanyahu’s 100 year war against ‘militant’ Islam, is the devil in the details that few – especially in the West – seem to grasp. The peoples of the once-Christian West, basking in their unrivalled power – economic, political, military, etc – fail to see that – contrary to what their bought-and-paid-for religious leaders tell them – it is not ‘God’ who has blessed their civilization with such largesse, but rather the most dangerous crime family ever to exist in human history. A century ago, just prior to this, the ‘Jewish Century’ (as described by writer Yuri Slezkine) the time period scheduled to serve as the 100 year gladatorial game between Christianity and Islam, organized Zionist interests began the process of seizing control of the various power centers of the West, after which time steroids cooked up within the temples, lodges and synagogues were pumped into the body of Western Civilization so as to create this present monster-in-human-form that had but one purpose – to prowl about the world and remake it into something more to the liking of Judaism’s eternal aims – soaked in sacrificial blood, scorched with sacrificial fire and teaming with every type of sacrificial human suffering imaginable.

Equally tragic is the fact that the West – in acting as the dutiful, loyal un-hired hand for the synagogue in rampaging through the Islamic world and eradicating the one remaining block of resistance to the same system of institutionalized evil which prophets of old went mad foretelling, at the same time what these worshipers of the beast fail to understand is that this 100-year campaign against Islam actually has 2 intended victims, the 2nd one being Christianity itself. By setting the 2 peoples – who collectively make up nearly half the world’s population – at each others’ throats, what organized Jewish interests hope to achieve is the killing of two birds with one stone. 100 years of ceaseless, bankrupting war can only result in the complete economic and political meltdown of the aggressor civilization that can then only result in its own ruination. As a civilization ostensibly built around the teachings and personhood of Jesus Christ, it will cease to exist as such, leaving only Judaism as the dominant influence in world affairs, and as such, the synagogue and its ruling class, the Sanhedrin, will have finally achieved what did not materialize 2,000 years ago with a mafia-hit against a Galilean carpenter that backfired.

To many, a scenario as Apocalyptic as this, brought into being by a mere string of words requiring no more than 5 seconds in speaking and coming out of the mouth of a mere man seems implausible. Accustomed to associating big things only with big beginnings, many are – to their own detriment – incapable of joining together images such as raging infernos and tiny sparks.

Such skeptics would do well however to remind themselves that similar conflagrations throughout history – before war became the instant, on-demand product that it is now – began in similar ways, including one that destroyed the lives of tens of millions of people that began with one bullet fired by an assassin named Gavrilo Princep in 1914.

Indeed, in many dramatic and traumatic events throughout history, it is the details – including (or especially) those coming out of the mouths of nightmarish creatures such as Netanyahu – that often matter, the small things that seem to escape the notice of the average ear and the average mind, but which in essence are the corners, closets and crevices that serve as hiding places for the devil.

Foreign policy shift puts Canada in extremists’ crosshairs

Unprecedented stance on Middle East affairs is putting Canada ‘on the map’ for armed attacks

A drastic shift in Canada’s Middle East policy has put the country “on the map” of international armed groups like the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), said one analyst, after two lethal attacks in the span of a week — one of which is said to have been inspired by the group.

“Canada seems to have gone far right” under the administration of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, said Roksana Bahramitash, director of research for the Canada research chair in Islam, pluralism and globalization at the University of Montreal.

His administration’s dramatic stance on Middle Eastern affairs, what analysts call an unprecedented departure from that of previous governments, which focused their diplomacy on aid and peacekeeping missions, “puts Canada in a position it has never been in before,” she said.

Since Harper took office in 2006, Ottawa has sent funds to support the opposition in Syria’s ongoing civil war, expressed vocal support for Israel amid the ongoing offensive in Gaza and suspended diplomatic relations with Iran at a high point of tensions between Washington and Tehran over Iran’s nuclear program.

“It’s likely we will see more [attacks], not less, unless we change our leadership,” said Bahramitash.

A fragmented left and a strong coalition of conservative parties have put conservatives like Harper in office and precipitated a hawkish turn in Canada’s foreign policy, said University of Toronto political science professor Aisha Ahmad. Canada’s next general elections will be held on Oct. 19, 2015.

This month Canadian lawmakers voted to join the U.S.-led airstrikes on ISIL in Iraq. On Wednesday the government said it would not back down from its role in the strikes, after Martin Rouleau — whom Harper called an “ISIL-inspired terrorist” — ran down two soldiers on Monday, killing one. On Wednesday, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a man who Canadian media say was also inspired by ISIL, gunned down a soldier at a national monument and attempted to kill others at Ottawa’s Parliament building.

Facing a sudden rash of national security threats, some analysts point to changes in Ottawa’s reputation in the international community.

During the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran in 1980, after the U.S. severed diplomatic relations with the Islamic Republic, the Canadian Embassy in Tehran helped secure the release of the hostages after 444 days in captivity. Harper, who did not respond to Al Jazeera’s interview requests, closed that embassy in September 2012.

Ahmad said she could not recall another occasion when Ottawa had “on principle of some sort shut down diplomatic relations with a government.”

“For the longest time, we had the credibility as a power to participate in international affairs as an honest broker,” said Ahmad. “We are no longer seen that way in the Middle East. That reputation no longer exists. Clearly, that is a product of dramatic actions the government has taken on its position on Israel” and other Middle Eastern affairs.

In Jerusalem in January, Harper was reportedly heckled by Arab lawmakers at the Knesset as he made a speech in support of the Israeli government. Amnesty International criticized Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, who has been vocal about Israel holding “such a special place in [his] heart,” for not condemning the Israeli bombardment of Gaza during the conflict this summer that left well over 2,000 Palestinians and 71 Israelis dead.

“Previous administrations have attempted to strike a balance between the sides of various Middle Eastern tensions,” said Daniel Hiebert, a professor at the University of British Columbia and a co-director of the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society. “The current government of Canada has a distinct policy on the Middle East compared to previous administration.”

Bahramitash, who recently traveled along the Iran-Afghanistan border, believes that taking a clearer stance on Middle Eastern affairs endangers Canadians at home and abroad.

“I was told that as a Canadian citizen, I had to be careful,” she said, referring to her recent travels. “It used to be, if you have American citizenship, you are at risk. But now Canadian citizenship is very risky.”

Ahmad said that before, “we would all feel very proud having a Canadian flag on our backpacks traveling around the world,” but those days are gone. Canada no longer boasts the soft power of being an “honest broker.”

Hiebert, meanwhile, cast doubt on a possible link between Canada’s exploits abroad and recent attacks at home.

“ISIL is very adverse to the West in general,” he said. “There is anger toward the West in general among many extremists who’ve adopted a violent approach.”

Ahmad agreed that although Canada’s more militaristic approach to international relations with the Middle East puts it “on the map” with international armed groups like ISIL, it is too soon to determine the motives behind Rouleau’s and Zehaf-Bibeau’s actions.

Citing government figures, Hiebert said that 50 to 100 Canadian nationals have joined ISIL’s ranks in the Middle East. Some, he says, may have been radicalized in Canada. Rouleau reportedly had his passport seized after trying to travel to the Middle East to join ISIL’s fight.

Hiebert acknowledges that with Canada’s new stance on Middle Eastern affairs, the country has become more entrenched in fights like the ongoing battle with ISIL.

“When you are bringing the world into your country, you are inviting the issues of the world into the country,” he said. “We hope people will leave issues at the door. And the vast majority do.”
