Dr. Moro: Iraqi Resistance Succeeded and Spoiled Occupation Projects


"The Earth Rain"
HEYET Net talked to the Egyptian writer and Islamic thinker Dr. Muhammad Moro about the role of the Association of Muslim Scholars leading role in correcting what surrounds Iraqi resistance from multi-defamation campaigns.

The Islamic thinker Dr. Mohammed Moro clarified the performance of the Association of Muslim Scholars in Iraq (AMSI) as performing satisfactorily and that the reason for this is the approach adopted by the resistance which managed to publish resistance thought in the world.

He said that the war in Iraq is a crusade war, and pretexts used by America's invasion and occupation of Iraq was obvious to us that this is just a false pretexts and arguments…

The Islamic thinker pointed out that victory in Iraq is really very close insaallah (God willing). What happens in the US arena developments reflect the defeat of Bush Administration and his project based in Iraq…

The following is the text of the interview:

HEYET Net - Five years of the American occupation of Iraq have passed... How do you view the pretexts and arguments of the U.S.A for invading Iraq? What are the real reasons for the invasion for your views?

Dr. Moro - In fact, the pretexts invoked by the U.S. were clear to us that this is just a false pretexts and arguments. This point of view of all observers and other observers with passion, the pretexts used by both Iraq's possession of weapons of mass destruction later on was proved with recognition by the Americans and the security services which used this pretext as a hoax…

Even reports which were provided to the Americans were acknowledging that Iraq does not possess such weapons…

Iraq does pose a threat neither to the West nor to the Arab States; therefore, this argument was lost before it starts, and then officially felt recognized by several security devices after occupation…

This was alone sufficient to trial on lying charges of Bush to the world in general and especially to the American public. His charges led the result of this invasion based on false pretexts killing hundreds of thousands, arresting tens of thousands and displacing millions of Iraqi people...

The second argument that America wanted to topple dictatorship…

Here is strange paradox in American policy; such is the same administration who is supporting dictators who take presidencies and dressed in military uniforms for decades... There is no need to mention names... But most of this is that the Americans are the ones who make dictatorships.

There is an argument used by some analysts that the reason– in their point of views - behind the invasion and occupation of Iraq was to control Iraqi oil. From a theoretical point of argument it is incorrect, which of course explains part of the theme of the reason that stands behind the occupation of Iraq, it does not explain the whole subject. True, America aspires to take advantage of Iraqi oil and control it; however this argument alone is not the reason for the invasion of Iraq!

The war in Iraq is a crusade; its proof is what George Bush said and the important word by his mouth, then returned and apologized to them.

What concerns us here, in fact, is to know what U.S. funds were expensed in Iraq because of this war. At official estimates, total expenditure reaches to three trillion dollars, and in the informal estimates, as some experts have pointed out that the war has cost nearly ten trillion dollars...

The second estimate on the amount of ten trillion dollars is not covered by Iraq's oil production, and it is not possible to be covered by the plundering of the U.S. war in Iraq from oil and other...

The situation can be calculated what Iraq is now producing from oil, and oil prices in global markets. To consider production revenues and earnings from dividends, and to assume that the Americans steal half of it in comparison how much money the U.S. administration expensed in its war, they will know that earning amount is worth nothing.

Here I can not deny that America has economic interests from its war and occupation of Iraq, but these interests do not really commensurate with what America paid from its budget, dead wounded, run-down military system, weakness of the army and fatigue of American society...

Thus the interpretation of the war on the grounds that it is because of oil is partial explanation; however this explanation is true, but does not include the topic in all aspects...

HEYET Net - How do you assess the Iraqi situation now under the suffering of the people from mass murder, torture and displacement?

Dr. Moro - Crime are committed by Americans in Iraq and by the Arab silence or impotence and betrayal of some political forces in Iraq.

HEYET Net - What about the raids, arrest campaigns and attacks against innocent people?

Dr. Moro - This confirms to us the fact that we are at the sectarianism projects, therefore it is duty for national forces in Iraq with all denominations to unite and to take the responsibility, and they must adopt a one position to end this situation.

HEYET Net - How do you view the mass displacement campaigns experienced by Iraq, and the number of displaced people at home and abroad, perhaps more than four million?

Dr. Moro - This is a tragedy reflecting another fact that reveals the falsehood of American claims allegedly came to provide the appropriate environment for freedom and democracy...

The result of displacement is very normal for the occupation of the American Jewish crusade.

HEYET Net - Why do sectarians try to displace Iraqis, particularly following displacement method based on identity?

Dr. Moro - Certainly displacement took a sectarian approach, and those who are pursuing a sectarian project have not completed this sectarian project except displacing the other community. Here I mean the Shiite politicians who have taken this sectarian approach as a path where upon they are walking. Thus nothing happens to whom they want only to displace Sunni people, for example. It is what happened in most regions of the South, many areas of Baghdad...

Moreover they will be able to control those areas where the other party abandoned to them for establishing a state or Shiite federalism in the south...

So there are some sorts of sectarianism and ethnic cleansing in Iraq which can not be ignored in any way!!

However, it is certain that all of these things will disappear in the coming days, and the truths will come clearer…

HEYET Net - Dr. you always called the resistance as "a beautiful light in the dark tunnel" How would you rate the performance of the resistance over the five years of occupation?

Dr. Moro - In my view the declination of the Islamic civilization increased, then fixed, then slipped. The issue of descending Islamic tendency has too many signs and in fact is Islamic reality...

This tendency has not been broken except with the Iraqi resistance...

As well as Lebanese, Palestinian, Afghan, Somali and other resistance movements...

But a great merit of this advancement is the Iraqi resistance, although it is now at difficult circumstances..

Even the Iraqi resistance was at a time of significant declination “the beautiful light in dark tunnel"

Thus, which stopped the U.S. imperialistic, colonialist and expansionist projects is the Iraqi resistance..

In other words, if the early outbreak of the Iraqi resistance at this time would not have erupted; Islamic Ummah will have been in case of retrogression that is wearisome so far!

HEYET Net - Does this mean you believe that the resistance has succeeded in foiling the U.S. project?

Dr. Moro - Yes. Iraqi Resistance succeeded in foiling the U.S. project with all certainty it caused a coup in the Islamic world and gave the ummah new hope and the value it deserves...

I say: the resistance was able to spoil the American project and its down; if there was not the Iraqi resistance, the resistance over the other countries in the multinational dimension would not spread. Because it gave hope to the people for having broken the prestige of the United States and preventing it from achieving its objectives in Iraq.

HEYET Net - What are the real causes of breaking of American administration in Iraq?

Dr. Moro - Since decades I have always been mentioning in my writings - and this has in some of by books for reference - I was saying: the true volition will prevail. The smallest village in the world can defeat America. The faith and the will are stronger than the war planes and the tanks. Human being is stronger than the technology, and we - Muslims - will not be defeated except inside of us!!

I have published a book entitled "we fought and won" 24 years ago. This book simply says: If we fought, we won, but if we decide to surrender under the pretext that the enemy is stronger than us, we can not face a war of aggression; then we defeated!!

This is true word by saying of Allah Almighty: “O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust. (The Holy Qur’an. 5:51) Then says: “And thou seest those in whose heart is a disease race toward them, saying: We fear lest a change of fortune befall us. And it may happen that Allah will vouchsafe (unto thee) the victory or a commandment from His presence. Then will they repent of their secret thoughts. (The Holy Qur’an. 5:52)

Therefore the logic of our enemy is stronger than us is an expression of “We fear lest a change of fortune befall us”!

HEYET Net - Dr, in light of these facts, many of which I have spoken... What is the future of the Iraqi resistance?

Dr. Moro - I think the Iraqi resistance is based on what previously decided and will not be defeated from outside. I think it will be defeated from within the country. .They will be victorious with help of God Almighty...

Thus, the chances of success lies in its analysis of the political situation in a good analysis, in addition to the need for analysis from logical perspective towards its owners, and faith perspective towards the enemy... They will succeed without a doubt.

HEYET Net - Turning to issue regarding Iran - the U.S. – Iraq.. To notice the intersection between American and Iranian projects In Iraq…Is this real or fictitious intersection in your opinion?

Dr. Moro - No, it is true. We must present a form from accurate understanding forms in this regard, there's no doubt the Iranians have a Shiite project and trying to take advantage of the Shiites in the world for its implementation. It is no doubt this project is a danger to the ummah, but it is less serious than the American project; having different possibilities, that is.

The second thing is that the Shiite project cannot be implemented except compromise with the United States. Therefore, if Iran wants to the implementation of the Shiite project, it will not be completed only to be a deal with the Americans!!

The Iranians do not mind them - apparently - from holding any deal with the Americans. This leads us to know an important fact, namely that America is mindless and wants to give Iran any package relating to Iraq, however in return for the latter deal which does not satisfy it is a strategic deal...

The problem of the Americans is that they do not want to give an appropriate reciprocity for all nations...

Although I think there are internal problems in Iran close to the case of dissolution. Therefore it is close to the case of defeat from the inside, and it will fell with the Shiite project which Iran is seeking to achieve it!!

We must know the Iranian project in Iraq is performed by some followers of Iran who owe their absolute allegiance to it, like the Shiite Islamic parties at least, who entered the current political arena under way in Iraq...

Thus they are implementing the policy serves to their critical Shiite project...

In return, it necessary for Sunnis to refuse the American Project and to resist against the Shiite Project with taking into account of it that is not serious than of American-Zionist expansionist project...

Of course, we exclude some other Shia Resistance groups like Hezbollah who develop a strategy to resist the Israeli aggression and the U.S...

Hence, the common denominator is to meet resistance. Therefore our position is clear over Hezbollah as a resistance faction to take a liberation basis for foiling the Zionist and American projects..

I know the issue is complex, but it is the policy. No doubt we should be thinking in the framework of our imagination, and there should be a separate position from the other party. This is exactly what made us to reject the Shiite project and at the same time to support Hezbollah in Lebanon...

HEYET Net - How do you view the Iranian intervention in Iraqi affairs? How it could be confronted?

Dr. Moro - I do not underestimate the importance of Iranian interference, and Iran has territorial ambitions in Iraq ..

If you resisted to the U.S. project, and united efforts to resist to America and confront with the American project, I believe this will itself face with the Iranian project ..

I mean: which is stronger now, the American army or the Iranian army? Of course the U.S. Army is militarily stronger...

If the occupation of Iraq by Iran is apparently completed, then the resistance will crush them like it did to the other that is stronger than Iran: the U.S. army...

But I assure you that if only Iran had not publicly intervened in Iraq. I am confident that Iraq will receive significant support from the Arab states to resist because of the seriousness of the Iranian project...

HEYET Net - U.S. elections at the door... What do you expect from it regarding the issue of Iraq?

Dr. Moro - I think the issue as follows: there is a decision of U.S. strategic withdrawal from Iraq and this decision - which will be taken to preserve the dignity of the U.S.- must be taken at the framework of “it is not defeated”. They called it perfect withdrawal on the one hand..

On the other hand, there are domestic reasons which will be imposed on an American withdrawal. Obama was nominated and stood with him by the institutions and parties those who want to withdraw from Iraq; of course, this is the case of his win...

It means American institutions decided to withdraw from Iraq!!

And decided Obama to succeed!! The success of Obama means: The United States decided to withdraw from Iraq, and stay in the war against terrorism...

HEYET Net - How do you evaluate the project sponsored by the opposition forces against the occupation of Iraq?

Dr. Moro - According to my information, I am inclined to the strong opposition project to the occupation, including the Association of Muslim Scholars. We support it in her correct position..

We do not have anything sacred and infallible, but the performance of AMSI so far is satisfactorily. The most important reason for this is that AMSI has a resistance approach and was able to publish resistance thought in the world...

The Association of Muslim Scholars and its information tools was able to correct what surrounded the Iraqi resistance from campaigns of defamation by multi-dimensional directions..

I think they have played a leading role in this direction; to establish its satellite channel, to publish newspaper, to open websites, and various releases are of clear proof over the maturity of its cultural project.

HEYET Net - Do you see a breakthrough in the Iraqi crisis at near level?

Dr. Moro - I think victory is very close insaallah (God willing)..

What happens in the U.S. arena developments reflect the defeat of Bush and its project based in Iraq... We are from foreign perspective won insaallah, however to win on ourselves remained...

We should do act with full responsibility, to keep ourselves away from sectarianism and partisanship. We should unite to challenge the foreign projects...

As I have mentioned earlier, Muslim nation (ummah) will not defeated from the outside... But will be defeated from within because of sedition, narrow-mindedness and other negative things.

HEYET Net - Thank you for giving us this opportunity

Dr. Moro - Thank you, May Allah (swt) bless you

Israel bombed shia alawi Al Assad intel center in Damascus and try to blame it on the Muslim parties

Syria's wall of security breached

By Sami Moubayed,

Damascus: In a rare but deadly attack, a car bomb exploded on Saturday, near a Shiite shrine in southern Damascus, killing 17 people and wounding 14 others, state media said.
Saturday's blast occurred during the morning rush-hour in the teeming neighbourhood of Sayeda Zeinab, the state-run Sana news agency said.

The district is popular among Shiite pilgrims from Iran, Lebanon and Iraq who pray at the tomb of Zeinab. "This is a cowardly terrorist attack," Syrian Interior Minister Bassam Abdul Majid told Gulf News.

The blast, which contained 200kg of explosives, killed 17 civilians.

Syria, usually known for its iron-fisted security, has witnessed some recent cracks in its apparatus, especially after the car bomb assassination of Emad Moughniya, military commander of the Lebanese group Hezbollah, in February.

Speculation was ripe in Arab and international media, some claiming that it targeted a nearby intelligence complex, others claiming it was aimed at the Shiite shrine.
While the site was immediately sealed off, Gulf News spoke with people near the scene.
"I saw a thick cloud of smoke rising into the air, followed by many ambulance cars rushing towards the scene," Ziad, a local cabdriver, explained.

"We haven't seen anything like this since the days of the Muslim Brotherhood," he added, in reference to militant attacks by the radical group in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Another observer, who declined to give his name, had a different theory.

"This is either Israel, or a certain Arab country that has had nothing but scorn for Syria since 2005. I don't want to mention names; everybody knows who I am taking about," he said.

Fingers pointed
Mustafa Al Sayyed, a journalist and analyst, said, "the explosion in Damascus was terrorism par excellence, because it targeted innocent civilians. I blame Israel, given all the terrorist attacks and assassinations we witnessed in Syria over the last year, which I believe, were conducted by the Mossad."

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, King Abdullah II of Jordan, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy were first to condemn the bombing. Medvedev described it as a "cruel and inhumane crime", while Sarkozy said it was, "barbarian and blind" expressing "solidarity with Syria in its fight against terrorism."

Attack: Snap analysis
The car bomb exploded less than 100 metres away from a major security base on a highway leading to Damascus's international airport, raising speculation that the base was the attackers' target. If confirmed, it would be the most brazen attack on Syrian security forces for several years.

No group claimed responsibility for the attack but the interior minister's remarks indicated that Syrian investigators suspect hardliners were involved.
The attack, in which a suicide bomber has not been ruled out, was reminiscent of attacks by the Muslim Brotherhood in the early 1980s.

The attack is the latest blow to Syrian security as it follows the assassination of the military commander of Lebanon's Hezbollah in Damascus and a senior military aide to President Bashar Al Assad in northern Syria earlier this year. It comes also a year after Israeli warplanes destroyed what was a suspected nuclear facility deep in Syrian territories.

The Syrian authorities have for long boasted that Syria was a haven of stability in a troubled area, with volatile Iraq, Lebanon and Israel on its borders. A rise in attacks is sure to change all that and make officials nervous over long-term stability in the country.

What's next
Syrian authorities are expected to crack down on hardliners and other dissident groups. Syria's ties with militants including Al Qaida-linked groups is complex and complicated. The United States and other countries have long accused Damascus of allowing Al Qaida to use its territory to transfer fighters to Iraq and even Lebanon - charges Syria denies. But Damascus has a track record of cracking down on Syrian hardliners since the 1970s. Over the past two years its forces have killed several militants and arrested hundreds.

The attack is unlikely to change Syrian policies, especially in pursuing indirect peace talks with Israel in Turkey and diplomatic detente with Europe after years of international isolation. But it might harden Syria's position on Lebanon and what it sees as the rise of militancy in the north of its smaller neighbour.

Affaire Mecili : Le gouvernement francais a ordonné la liquidation de Mecili au travers de son agent 'juif' sioniste Larbi Belkheir

Le titre de ce post résume bien la situation, contrairement à ce que les criminels de guerre et commanditaires des attentats d'Alger, le 11 Decembre 2007 visant les batiments de l'ONU, Bernard Bajolet et Alliot Marie tentent de faire croire à une lutte entre opposants algériens en Europe.

L'agent sioniste Belkheir, pour le compte du gouvernement francais a fait assassiner l'avocat Ali Mecili, et Sarkosy, fils spirituel de l'officier du mossad Pasqua fait tout pour le couvrir... Un Belkheir jugé et c'est tous les faux groupes islamiques crées au Maghreb qui seront jugés, puisque la France au travers de l'agent francais Belkheir, a crée le GIA, le GICM, pris le controle en 1996 du GSPC et maintenant AQMI...

Belkheir tombe, et le cortege des harkis comme Tewfik suit immediatement... L'on ne discute pas du 'repentir' de la France mais bien de la mise en place d'un tribunal international pour l'Algerie afin de juger les politiques, militaires, policiers et magistrats francais responsables du génocide algérien et reparations financieres astronomiques... C'est une tres grande difference, que le nain de jardin israelien Sarkosy n'a pas du tout saisie... Proteger Belkheir ou le faire condamner en France ne l'empechera pas d'etre cité dans tous les autres proces à venir et il y en beaucoups !

Je crois fermement que Sarkosy fera assassiner Belkheir au Maroc dans les semaines ou les mois qui viennent car Aboulker de son vrai nom de juif algérien tient un rang assez elevé au sein du gouvernement francais, c'est toute la France-Afrique qui risque l'eradication...


Dans les coulisses de l'affaire Mecili
le 24 septembre

C’est l’affaire Ben Barka, version algérienne.

L’affaire Mecili, du nom d’Ali André Mecili, avocat franco-algérien abattu devant son domicile parisien, le 7 avril 1987.

Mecili tentait alors d’unifier l’opposition algérienne en exil. Son tueur présumé, muni d'une lettre de mission signée d'un certain capitaine Rachid Hassani, est arrêté par la police, avant d'être expulsé vers Alger par le ministre de l’Intérieur de l’époque, Charles Pasqua.

L’été dernier : l’affaire rebondit. Un diplomate algérien est arrêté à Marignane : Mohammed Ziane Hasseni. Il pourrait s’agir du commanditaire du meurtre d’Ali Mecili, ce que démentent farouchement les autorités algériennes…
France Inter rouvre le dossier Mecili.

The PRE-PLANNED Financial/Economic 911 of 2008

Ben Shalom Bernanke, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, is the dedicated Zionist Jew behind the $85 billion taxpayer-funded bailout of Maurice Greenberg's criminal enterprise, A.I.G.

WHAT: A pre-planned collapse of the US (and global) financial and economic systems.

WHO: The same characters who perpetrated the original 911.

WHERE: New York City & DC, of course. Plus a sideshow in Washington state.

WHEN: The days surrounding September 11, naturally.

HOW: Instead of painted drones, missiles with fins and fake airplanes, they used the much more stealthy short seller.

WHY: To remake the economic/financial order of the world.

WHY Really: Think about it ! And then ask yourself, “Cui bono?”

The 911 blueprint worked so magically for the world controllers that they were compelled to use virtually the same playbook. “If it ain't broke, don't fix it.”

So, what's the real deal here?

By analogy, let's take a quick look at the 911 timeline and stack it up against the new 2008 Financial “911”, as it began to unfold earlier this year.

The Bear Stearns collapse that began in March, 2008 is analogous to the 1 st World Trade Center bombing in 1993. Just a warm up.

The nationalization of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac marks the beginning of the new 911. Both in the DC area, they were the first to come down this time. Just as they struck at the heart of the military complex, this time they went for the jugular of the national real estate market. Remember – this is a financial 911.

Next came this year's version of the twin towers, building 7 and other assorted NYC landmarks in the form of Lehman Brothers, AIG, Merrill Lynch, as well as Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs in their “new & improved” form. Basically took out the whole of American investment brokerage, heh?!

And, of course, we still have Washington Mutual out there in the boonies just like the one that “crashed” in a PA farm field.

The 700 trillion dollar Bailout Plan is just like the Patriot Act, isn't it? Only this time it's maybe a 1 or 2 page document that confers absolute authority on the Executive Branch to do just about anything they want with the taxpayer's money. And they want it rubber stamped now. Not tomorrow. NOW!!! Without discussion, or unnecessary congressional debate. Talk about Shock & Awe being used against the American people, and their elected representatives!?!
Now we know we can expect further gyrations, panics and precipitous declines in the market and elsewhere, just as we had anthrax attacks in the Capital, beltway snipers in Maryland in October of '02, the 3/11/04 train bombings in Madrid , and the 7/7/05 bombings in London . Not to mention the 50 or so other synthetic terror events staged throughout the world to enforce compliance and create distraction.

The sudden and dramatic downfall of NY Gov Eliot Spitzer can also now be seen in its proper light. Having left the reservation one too many times, he simply could not be trusted to go with the flow. He had their numbers, their signatures, their addresses --- the whole ball of wax, as well as his own reputation to burnish. The elimination of John O'Neil, Head of Security at the WTC, is quite similar, except that John O. – a great patriot – died on 911 having just been given the job.

To date, the most obvious and glaring example of this manipulated takedown is the case of a NY Senator. His letter to the FDIC contained confidential information that triggered the IndyMac bank collapse in July. California AG Jerry Brown was called to review the entire affair after the OTS Director explicitly blamed the letter for causing a run on the bank (3 rd largest bank failure in US history). This episode is eerily reminiscent of Larry Silverstein's order to, “Pull it.” just prior to the expertly controlled demolition of Building # 7on 911.

Just as 911 was perpetrated as a cover for: inaugurating the War on Terror, overtly advancing the NWO regime globally (in contrast to this previously covert operation), imposing a police state (Homeland Security) in the US (by gutting the US Constitution), UK and elsewhere, dominating and securing oil/gas reserves in the Middle East and Cacaucus (to include running energy pipelines through Afghanistan and stealing Irag's oil wealth via military invasion), jump starting the Afghan opium trade, etc., the ECO/FIN 911 of '08 is a cover for many of these same agenda items. However, there is one little item that is particularly high on the current agenda. And that concerns the derivatives market, which in its totality approximates somewhere between 500 trillion and 1 quadrillion dollars of instruments as of 2008. In fact, the sub prime mortgage defaults are just a tip of the tip of the iceberg when compared to the real megilla – DERIVATIVES. This is what they're really worried about, and having to cover for. Except this is a quadrillion dollar megilla that can't be covered without unraveling the entire capitalistic system, and its fascist corpocracy and kleptocratic oligarchy.

And then there is the teenie, weenie matter concerning the Federal Reserve, and its collection agency – the IRS. The man standing behind this curtain has a lot at stake, especially in the form of mountains of evidence that will indict, and convict, the entire system. Lots of evidence was destroyed during and after 911, as will happen after many of these Wall Street firms are taken over, nationalized, liquidated, merged and disappeared. The veil, however, has already been lifted.

Does anyone see a pattern here?!

The real lesson to be gleaned from this analysis is that events of such enormity and consequence are rarely spontaneous and unchoreographed. Especially when they happen just weeks from an era defining presidential election. They have obviously been planning this one for a long time, and it has been fastidiously engineered to have a very definite effect and desired outcome – a permanent planetary plantation (PPP).

The execution, thus far, has been flawless. Even for those of us who stood there on the 1 st 911, and knew it was a fraud while the buildings were coming down, this one is exceedingly more difficult to penetrate. However, penetrate we will, until every last conspirator is sitting before the TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION spillin' the beans. The ultimate and lasting effect of these inquiries will be a New World Order of our making, not theirs. The only remaining, $64,000 question will undoubtedly be, “What do we do with them when we head them off at the pass?”

For the uninitiated, it may take quite a lot to wrap your mind around this extremely complex and convoluted plot, but, please, just be patient. As this drama plays out, the true intentions of the primary perpetrators will become manifest as they unwittingly reveal themselves by their handiwork. As Eliot Spitzer, no - Eliot Ness, nee – Sherlock Holmes once alluded to – a fingerprint inadvertently left as evidence is impossible to erase.

You see, the short sellers, unlike the “airplanes”, are still with us. Each one had a target to take down which they did with amazing speed and dexterity. And the myriad transactions that converged to topple their prey are all preserved somewhere, in some huge database, with multiple backups to serve as confirmation of trades of staggering amounts. AHHH! Nothing like computers, especially when they're not confiscated and shipped off to China for permanent disposal.

May all financial wizards and economic soothsayers, henceforth, be inspired to stare into their crystal ball and divine the upcoming financial and economic events of global proportions with the keenest of acumen and sleuthing. As we shine the LIGHT of our collective awareness on these rapidly unfolding schemes, we will serve as beacons of revelation, and hope to the world.
Remember – we now know the script. We know the major players involved. We are able to watch the crimes being committed in real time. Each of us has now been thusly notified, and empowered, to serve as a vector of dissemination of this vital and critical information.

So -----> LET'S GET BUSY ! ! !

Warning : Israel to strike Germany with a huge false flag operation

BEYROUTH BOMBINGS : SADM WERE USED : micro nuke devices owned by TEL AVIV
BALI BOMBINGS : SADM WERE USED : micro nuke devices owned by TEL AVIV

ISLAMABAD BOMBING : micro nuke devices owned by TEL AVIV

Intelligence: Terror false flags operation in U.S., Europe possibly imminent

Israeli Mossad is informing you through his mouthpiece Michael Chertoff, israeli citizen living in the USA and Master Terrorist Chief of the Homeland Security Department that Israel is going to strike Germany in the coming days. Now look at their message, it's clear no ? Well that's on their website !
Terrorist operatives reportedly dispatched, in place, and possibly ready to execute terrorist operation in U.S., Europe“Pray for the successes of our brothers in America & Europe. Expect ‘good news’ soon.” Posted by Arabic speaking Islamic terrorist supporter (it means Sarkosy Ben Mossad, of course !)

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

17 September 2008: A disturbing communication posted in a high level Arabic language forum suggests that some type of terrorist operation is currently underway, targeting sites within the United States and Europe. According to information developed within the last 24 hours by a deep-cover intelligence operative, Islamic terrorists have been dispatched to the U.S. and Europe and may be in place, preparing to execute unspecified terrorist attacks within the U.S. and Europe.

Neither the targets nor the types of attacks were able to be identified from an analysis of the communications, although it appears possible that the European and American operations could be conducted in tandem. Also unclear is the timetable of potential attacks, although the wording pertaining to the “anticipated celebration” of the success of such attacks suggests that they will be carried out within the next few days.

While many such threats by Islamic terrorists are published constantly and end up being nothing more than propaganda, it is important to note that the origin and nature of the communications isolated here meet a significantly higher standard of evidence for threat evaluation purposes. As such, it is the recommendation of this agency that individual awareness of any suspicious activity be stepped up accordingly, and immediately reported to the appropriate law enforcement agency.

Increased vigilance by law enforcement and security professionals is also urged, especially at areas of likely “hard” targets such as our infrastructure.

From King David Hotel in Palestine to Marriott Hotel in Pakistan

« Pakistan is being punished for refusing to allow U.S. military boots on Pakistani soil, for the bombings in India, for the July 7 attack on the Indian embassy in Kabul, and for the failures of the American military in Afghanistan. The attack is a clear message to the Pakistani ruling elite: We will bring the war to your home. », Ahmed Quraishi : « Islamabad Attack: Time To End Pakistani Role In America’s War », 21st Sept 2008.

The inside of Marriott Hotel, Islamabad, in flames

General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani gave a stern warning to Washington against any attack on Pakistani soil, and recently gave orders to repel and did repel such an intrusion. In order to end pro-US President Zardardi’s alleged reluctance to endorse the General’s warning to Washington, on 20th September 2008, the President, who is also the widower of assassinated Benazir Bhutto, told a joint session of Parliament that : « We will not tolerate the violation of our sovereignty and territorial integrity by any power in the name of combating terrorism ». A few hours later, namely at 20.00 hours on 20 Sept 2008, the Marriott Hotel was attacked and the US immediately put the blame on Al-Qaida and the ‘Pakistan Taliban’. Both terms are creations of the Mossad-CIA. There is no organisation called Al-Qaida which was the name given by the Mossad-CIA to their database of Afghan agents fighting the Soviet occupation. On the other hand, Taliban is a political organisation in Afghanistan like Labour in the UK and Likhud in Israel-in-Palestine. There is no political organisation called ‘Taliban’ in Pakistan, although there are Pakistanis who may sympathise with the Taliban. But they are an infirm minority in small groups and not armies as alleged by the US and their Pakistani agents. They have neither sophisticated weapons nor any money to buy them. Those stories are invented by Zionists in the US and Israel and repeated ad nauseam in their media in order to make a case to force pro-US President Zardardi to turn his guns on his own people and to attack Pakistan and seize its nuclear weapons.

The Indian connection
The US have allowed India to set up military training camps in Afghanistan, and they are training, arming and financing rebels who are being sent to Pakistan to destabilise the government. India has forged a strategic alliance with Israel to perfect India’s methods of occupation of Kashmir where all Indian atrocities, mass graves of Kashmiris, shootings of civilians and human rights abuses are brushed under the carpet. The Mossad, Hamid Karzai and India are fuelling ethnic insurgency in South West Pakistan where China is building a strategic port. In addition, with her nuclear and military deals with the US, India seems to pay lip service to her diverse peoples with a high risk of further partitions of India. Remember, it was India which financed and armed East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) to breakaway from then West Pakistan.

The Marriott attack
In 1946, through his terrorists dressed up in Palestinian army uniforms, terrorist Menahem Begin, leader of Irgun, bombed the King David Hotel, the British Military command in Palestine, leading to the break-up of Palestine to this day. The break-up of Pakistan is on the Mossad-CIA agenda. Similarly, the bombing, allegedly by two Sunni men in uniform, of the Holy Shia mosque in Samarra in April 2003, was designed to divide resistance against the terror of US occupation and its allies and eventually divide Iraq. The hotly-disputed and unproven official conspiracy theory is that the 9/11 attacks in the US were the work of Al-Qaida and the Taliban, leading to the invasion of Afghanistan and later Iraq. This is the only way Zionists can divide and control the Muslim world.

Although no group has claimed responsibility for the Marriott attack in Islamabad, the US conspiracy theory is that it is the work of Al-Qaida and the Taliban, again with no proof. But the sequence of events points in a totally different direction, especially as the attack took place only a few hours after President Zardardi’s assurance on the protection of Pakistani sovereignty. In the Marriott attack, CCTV footage shows a truck trying to force its way through the barrier but ‘failed’ to go through as it stopped at the barrier, 60 feet away from the hotel. An explosion took place inside the lorry and security guards tried to put out the fire. But the alleged ‘suicide bombing’ was never shown, and how the deep crater outside the hotel was created was not shown either. But the whole length of the hotel was on fire inside and across all the floors, and this was not caused by the explosion outside as the alleged ‘bomb-laden’ lorry could not make it beyond the gate.

Reports suggest that Mr. Sadruddin Hashwani, the owner of Marriott, allowed the U.S. military to store military equipment inside the hotel. Mr Hashwani is said to be very close to President Zardardi and co-owners of a hotel in Houston, Texas. While Admiral Mike Mullen was meeting Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and others in Islamabad on 20 Sept 2008, it is reported that steel boxes were being unloaded by US Marines from a US Embassy truck and shifted to the upper floors of the Marriott Hotel by bypassing the scanners. This activity was witnessed by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) members such as « Mumtaz Alam Gilani and his two friends, Sajjad Chaudhry, a PPP leader, and one Bashir Nadeem », says Ahmed Quraishi.

It is also very strange and suspicious that, after such a shocking and sophisticated attack, President Zardardi persists in flying to New York on 22 Sept 2008, less than two days following the Marriott attack, to attend a US-controlled General Assembly session where he will meet the US invading President George Bush « on the sidelines » who will most probably urge him to sack Pakistan's powerful army chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani who dared sent warning shots against the US in order to protect Pakistan from US terrorism.

« The frequency and intensity of attacks inside Pakistan have exceeded the attacks that U.S. military is facing in Afghanistan », says Ahmad Quraishi. This is clearly part of a plan to force President Zardardi to turn his guns on his own people and give the US military a foothold inside Pakistan, which Pakistanis reject. President Zardardi must shed the stigma of being a pro-US leader, and prove to the Pakistani people that he is a pro-Pakistan leader safeguarding his people and the sovereignty of Pakistan. No one should be allowed to meddle in its internal affairs. Pakistan must defeat the Zionist forces of extremism and terrorism operating in Pakistan. In his article, Ahmed Quraishi makes it abundantly clear that for this to happen, Pakistan must end its role in America’s war.

Pakistan bombing targeted a group of the most important cadres of American intelligence

Message to Robert Gates, chief of the american terrorists in the Middle East : You should have been over there ? Aren't you ? Why did you changed your plans ? Apparently you have a huge problem with Mullen, may be next time he will have more chance ! Like the israelis we have all your communications... Tel Aviv did not warned you, how comes ? Who do you believe now ?


Update, 21st September 2008, 23H59pm :

What Was Mysterious Activity Going on in the Marriott Hotel Islamabad by United States Marines

Sunday, 21 September 2008 12:18 www.daily.pk

Marriott Hotel has now become a ghost house which was yesterday the most beautiful and prestigious hotels in the Islamabad. While the condemnation of the blasts and the deaths and the loss of property is going on from all the quarters, some intriguing news is also pouring in.
After the blast, mysteriously fire was started at the fourth and fifth floors. It was said that this fire was the result of gas pipeline burst running through the hotel. The million dollar question is that was the gas pipeline not running through the other floors? Why the fire broke out from the fourth and fifth flours? That is the question which perhaps holds the key to the mystery as why the hotel was targeted yesterday, in which more than 60 people died including many foreigners.
Though it would never get confirmed but the fire on the fifth and fourth floor of the hotel broke out because those flours were housing the mysterious steel boxes under the heavy guard of United States marines and no one including the Pakistani security forces and the security men of the hotel were allowed to go near with the them. These boxes were shifted inside the hotel when the Admiral Mike Mullen met Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and others in Islamabad.
It is said that one member of parliament Mumtaz Alam who belongs to the PPP, the ruling party was there eye witnessed the whole scene when the white truck of US embassy came to the gate of Marriot Hotel and US marines themselves unloaded the steel boxes from the trucks and shifted them to the fourth and fifth floors without passing through them the scanners at the entrance of the hotels. When the truck was there, all the entrance and the exit passage way to the hotels were closed.

And now this blast has occurred at the Marriott, while that mysterious activity was going on.

The news agency revealed "ANI" Asian massive bomb attack that destroyed the Marriott Hotel in the Pakistani capital Islamabad on Saturday was aimed at the most elite of cadres and the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency CIA. وأفادت أحدث حصيلة للعملية التفجيرية المباغتة بسقوط 60 قتيلاً وأكثر من 200 جريح، فيما لا تزال هناك أعداد كبيرة من المفقودين والمحاصرين تحت أنقاض الفندق الذي يوشك على الانهيار التام. According to the latest toll of the bombing sudden fall of 60 dead and more than 200 wounded, while there are still large numbers of missing and trapped under the rubble of the hotel which is about to complete collapse. وذكرت مصادر حكومية ألمانية أن ستة من الرعايا الألمان كانوا بين الجرحى الذين خلفتهم العملية التفجيرية، وكانت الأنباء قد أشارت إلى إصابة ثلاثة من مسئولي السفارة الأمريكية، وعدد كبير من المواطنين الغربيين.

The German government sources said that six German nationals were among the wounded who left behind after suicide, and the news has pointed to the injury of three U.S. embassy officials and a large number of Westerners. وأعربت بريطانيا عن قلقها الشديد لمقتل هذا العدد الضخم في العملية التفجيرية، وأعلنت استعدادها لمساعدة باكستان في ضبط الوضع الأمني المتوتر. Britain expressed grave concern about the deaths of so many massive bombing and declared their willingness to help Pakistan in controlling the tense security situation. لندن تؤكد مساندة حكومة باكستان: London emphasizes support of the Government of Pakistan: وقال ديفيد ميليباند وزير الخارجية البريطاني في تصريحات لمحطة "بي.بي.سي نيوز 24": "مساعدتنا للحكومة الباكستانية من الواضح أنها ستكون في الجانب الأمني ولدينا مصالح مشتركة على الحدود الباكستانية الأفغانية لأن الجنود البريطانيين من الواضح أنهم في موضع خطر في أفغانستان".

"David Miliband, British Foreign Secretary told the" me. Me. ABC News 24 ":" our assistance to the Pakistani government clearly would be in the security aspect and we have common interests on the Afghan-Pakistan border since the British soldiers it is clear they are at stake in Afghanistan. " وأضاف: "نحن نريد أن ندعم تنميتهم الاقتصادية والاجتماعية لأنه على المدى الطويل يعد ذلك هاما لطرد المتطرفين وتهميش المتطرفين" كما قال. He added: "We want to support their economic and social consequences of the long term, this is important to expel extremists and marginalize the extremists," he said. وتواصل الدول الغربية الحليفة للولايات المتحدة استغلال كل فرصة تسنح في الأفق لتحريض حكومات الدول المسلمة ضد كل نشاط إسلامي تحت ذريعة مواجهة خطر ما يسمى "الإرهاب" و"التطرف"، على الرغم من تأكيدات كبار المثقفين والمفكرين الغربيين على حقيقة أن "الإرهاب" سببه الأصلي هو شن الحروب ضد الدول واللجوء إلى أساليب الابتزاز والتهديد العسكري في فرض المطامع والأهداف.

States continue its Western allies of the United States utilizing every opportunity on the horizon to incite Muslim governments against all Islamic activity under the pretext of the so-called counter the threat of "terrorism" and "extremism", despite assurances from senior Western thinkers and intellectuals to the fact that "terrorism" because the original Is waging war against the State and resort to methods of blackmail and the threat of the imposition of military ambitions and goals. وقد وقع الانفجار بعد ساعات من إلقاء الرئيس الباكستاني آصف زرداري أرمل رئيسة الوزراء السابقة بينظير بوتو خطابه الأول أمام البرلمان على بعد بضعة مئات من الأمتار من الفندق ودعا فيه لتصعيد الحرب على الإسلاميين باسم "مكافحة الإرهاب".

The explosion occurred hours after delivering a widower Asif Ali Zardari Pakistan's former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, his first address to parliament a few hundred meters from the hotel in which he called for the escalation of the war on the Islamists as "the fight against terrorism."

Les Maîtres de la Défaite : un Empire américain en déconfiture

Où que l’on porte son regard, la politique impériale des Etats-Unis subit des défaites militaires et diplomatiques de grande ampleur. Avec le soutien du Congrès Démocrate des Etats-Unis, la poursuite par une Maison-Blanche républicaine d’une approche militaire du meccano de l’Empire a conduit à un déclin d’ampleur mondiale de l’influence américaine, au réalignement d’anciens régimes-clients sur des adversaires de l’Empire (américain), à l’émergence d’hégémons concurrents et à la perte de sources vitales de matières premières stratégiques.

Où que l’on porte son regard, la politique impériale des Etats-Unis subit des défaites militaires et diplomatiques de grande ampleur. Avec le soutien du Congrès Démocrate des Etats-Unis, la poursuite par une Maison-Blanche républicaine d’une approche militaire du meccano de l’Empire a conduit à un déclin d’ampleur mondiale de l’influence américaine, au réalignement d’anciens régimes-clients sur des adversaires de l’Empire (américain), à l’émergence d’hégémons concurrents et à la perte de sources vitales de matières premières stratégiques. Les défaites et les pertes n’ont (pourtant) en rien douché l’enthousiasme des stratèges, ni mis un terme à une frénésie d’édification d’un empire.

Au contraire : tant la Maison-Blanche que les membres actuels du Congrès ont adopté un durcissement des positions militaires, réitéré un style agressif de politique et une dépendance accrue vis-à-vis de l’outremer, ainsi qu’une posture belliqueuse visant à distraire le peuple américaine de la dégradation de ses conditions de vie. Tandis que le coût économique et politique d’entretien de l’Empire ne fait que s’accroître, tandis que le gouvernement fédéral alloue des centaines de milliards de dollars à un secteur financier mité par les crises et opère des coupes de plusieurs dizaines de milliards dans les taxes sur les profits des entreprises, afin d’essayer d’éviter les faillites et la récession, c’est l’ensemble du fardeau économique qui est supporté par les salariés, sous la forme d’un niveau de vie déclinant, tandis que douze millions d’ouvriers immigrés sont en butte à une sauvage répression de l’Etat.

Les échecs outre-mer et les crises à l’intérieur, toutefois, n’ont abouti à l’apparition d’aucune alternative progressiste : les bénéficiaires en sont les concurrents des Etats-Unis, outre-océan, et l’élite américaine. Dans une large mesure, là où des majorités de l’opinion publique ont exprimé un désir (voire, ont réclamé à cor et à cris) des alternatives progressistes, elles ont été rembarrées par des représentants politiques liés à des idéologues militaristes et aux élites entrepreneuriales.

Paradoxalement, les défaites et le déclin du meccano d’empire américain sous emprise militaire se sont accompagnés du reflux des mouvements anti-guerre en Amérique du Nord et en Europe occidentale, ainsi que du déclin vertigineux des partis et des régimes politiques opposés à l’impérialisme US dans les capitales de tous les pays capitalistes avancés. Autrement dit, les défaites subies par l’Empire états-unien n’ont pas été produites par la gauche occidentale, et elles n’ont par conséquent produit aucun « dividende de la paix », ni même des conditions de vie améliorées, pour les classes laborieuses ou pour les paysans. Pour autant qu’elles aient bénéficié à quelqu’un, c’est essentiellement à des pays aspirant depuis peu à l’impérialisme économique, comme la Chine, la Russie ou l’Inde, ou encore à de riches pays pétroliers du Moyen-Orient, mais surtout parmi à un vaste ensemble de pays exportateurs de ressources agro-minérales, comme le Brésil, l’Afrique du Sud et l’Iran, qui se sont taillé de confortables « niches » économiques dans leurs régions respectives.

La croissance et l’expansion outre-mer des nouveaux pays bâtisseurs d’empire(s) économique(s), ainsi que leurs classes dirigeantes agro-minéralo-financières (à la possible exception du Venezuela) ont grandement bénéficié à une minuscule élite ne comprenant jamais plus d’un cinquième de leur population générale.

Le déclin relatif de l’impérialisme militaire états-unien et l’ascension de nouvelles puissances impérialistes économiques ont redistribué la richesse et les parts de marché entre pays, mais non pas entre classes, au sein des puissances montantes. Si ce sont les spéculateurs militaristes-sionistes-financiers qui dirigent l’Empire américain, c’est, en revanche, les industriels nouveaux milliardaires, les spéculateurs de l’immobilier et les exportateurs de matières premières agro-minérales qui dirigent les nouveaux empires économiques en cours d’émergence.

Relevons un deuxième paradoxe dans le fait que les forces politiques qui sont en train de dézinguer l’empire américain militaro-centré ne sont pas les mêmes que celles qui bénéficient de la guerre…

Si les résistances irakienne et afghane ayant imposé un coût s’élevant au minimum à trois milliards de dollars au Trésor américain et cloué au sol plus de deux millions de militaires américains en rotation dans ces contrées durant les six années écoulées, ce sont les Chinois, les Indiens, les Russes, les Européens, les classes dirigeantes et financières du pétrole du Golfe qui ont récolté les bénéfices d’énormes dépenses américaines improductives. Si les nouveaux bénéficiaires sur le plan économique sont, dans une large mesure, laïcs, impérialistes et élitistes, les forces politico-militaires qui sont en train de saper et de battre l’Empire militaire américain sont des forces religieuses (islamiques), nationalistes et fondées sur l’adhésion des masses.

Les défaites actuelles du meccano de l’Empire militaire américain ne sont pas le produit de mouvements occidentaux, laïcs, de gauche, de masse. Elles ne se traduisent pas non plus dans une société progressiste ou égalitaire.

Non : en lieu et place, nous assistons à des inégalités économiques criantes se développant à très grande vitesse, dictées par des classes dirigeantes qui font la promo de leurs propres versions « nationales » des stratégies néolibérales à base de liberté des marchés et de stratégies maximisant les profits, à travers l’exploitation économique du travail, de l’extraction jusqu’à l’épuisement des ressources naturelles et du pillage de l’environnement. Tant que les mouvements de masses, les intellectuels et les militants de l’Occident ne se départiront pas de leur passivité et de leur allégeance aveugle vis-à-vis des plus grands partis politiques existants, la défaite du militarisme US restera un fardeau coûteux, assumé par les masses du Tiers-Monde, tandis que les bénéfices afflueront vers les nouveaux impérialistes économiques nouveaux milliardaires, en pleine expansion.

Géographie des défaites et de la Berezina de l’Empire

Le Moyen-Orient : l’Irak et l’Iran

L’ascension du meccano d’Empire à direction militaire aux Etats-Unis a, une fois de plus, mis en évidence son incapacité absolue d’imposer un nouvel ordre impérial. Après six ans et demi de guerre et d’occupation en Irak, les Etats-Unis ont subi des pertes militaires effroyables et des pertes économiques s’élevant à plus d’un demi-milliard de dollars sans avoir pu, pour autant, s’assurer un quelconque gain, ni en matière politique, ni en matière militaire, ni prosaïquement en termes de ressources naturelles. Les pertes entraînées par la guerre ont généré une opposition domestique à l’intervention militaire américaine qui ne cesse de saper la capacité militaire actuelle et future de l’Empire. Il n’est pas jusqu’au chef de pacotille installé par les Etats-Unis à la tête de l’Irak, Al-Maliki qui n’ait osé exiger une date ferme pour le retrait des Etats-Unis.

L’autre client des Etats-Unis, en Afghanistan, cette fois, le président Kharzai, a réclamé un droit de regard accru sur les opérations militaires américaines, qui ont tué des dizaines de non-combattants et de civils, ne faisant, de ce fait, qu’approfondir et étendre le soutien de la population afghane à la résistance nationale, qui opère désormais absolument partout en Afghanistan.

Pour ceux, aux Etats-Unis (et en particulier à « gôche ») qui arguaient erronément du fait que l’invasion de l’Irak aurait été « une guerre pour le pétrole » (et non ce qu’elle était en réalité, à savoir une guerre visant à soutenir les ambitions hégémoniques d’Israël), la signature par l’Irak d’un contrat de fourniture de pétrole, pour un montant de 3 milliards de dollars avec la China National Petroleum Corporation, fin août [1], démontre le contraire, à moins que les tenants du « Pas de sang pour du pétrole ! » soient prêts à revoir leur slogan, pour en faire : « Non à une guerre américaine pour le pétrole chinois ! »… Tout au long des six années consécutives à l’invasion de l’Irak par les Etats-Unis, les compagnies pétrolières américaines n’ont jusqu’ici jamais réussi à obtenir le moindre marché pétrolier qui fût digne d’être mentionné.

Les 4 et 5 octobre, la Shell, une des plus grandes multinationales pétrolières du monde, et OMV, une firme énergétique australienne vont parrainer une conférence, à Téhéran, sous les auspices de la National Iranian Gaz Export Company, afin de promouvoir « les opportunités d’exportations de gaz et les potentialités gazières de la République Islamique d’Iran ». Cette conférence n’est qu’un exemple de plus du rôle joué par les majors du pétrole, qui s’efforcent, par des moyens pacifiques, de bâtir leurs holdings transocéaniques (l’ « empire économique »). La plus importante opposition à cette initiative « pétrole contre la paix » de la Shell Oil est venue du principal promoteur judéo-sioniste de l’engagement américain dans les guerres moyen-orientales pour les beaux yeux d’Israël, j’ai nommé l’Anti-Defamation League, qui a fustigé « Big Oil », les « grossiums du pétrole »…

Selon ses deux principaux dirigeants, Glen Lewy et Abe Foxman,
« … ces deux firmes sont en train de sponsoriser une conférence avec la compagnie d’Etat du principal pays encourageant le terrorisme et grand violateur des droits humains devant l’Eternel. Mais en sponsorisant comme elles le font une des industries stratégiques de l’Iran - le gaz naturel -, OMV et Shell portent atteinte aux efforts déployés par les Etats responsables (sic) et par de nombreuses entreprises, afin d’isoler l’Iran ».

Le conflit entre Shell/OMV et la principale organisation siono-juive américaine met en évidence le conflit fondamental opposant le meccano de l’Empire économique et celui de l’Empire militaire. Le fait que Shell et OMV aient poursuivi leur préparation de la conférence en Iran démontre que certains secteurs, tout au moins, de l’industrie pétrolière, commencent, enfin, à défier la mainmise des siono-militaristes sur la politique moyen-orientale des Etats-Unis. Après avoir perdu des dizaines de milliards de dollars en contrats pétroliers lucratifs, « grâce » aux politiques dictées par les sionistes, les compagnies pétrolières sont tout juste en train (enfin !) d’ébaucher de premiers pas en direction de la formulation d’une nouvelle politique.

En poursuivant l’agenda israélo/siono-américain de guerres séquentielles et de sanctions contre de riches pays pétroliers musulmans, Washington a perdu l’accès, le contrôle et les profits qui en découlent, à l’avantage de concurrents économiques de taille mondiale, d’une une région particulièrement stratégique.


En Somalie, Washington a opté pour l’intervention militaire via le régime éthiopien dictatorial comparse de Meles Zenawi, afin de soutenir le régime fantoche failli et pro-américain d’Abdullah Yusuf.

Après près de deux ans, l’Ethiopie et le régime fantoche ne contrôlent qu’à grand-peine que deux pâtés de maisons de la capitale Mogadishu, tandis que le reste du pays est aux mains de la résistance somalie. D’après le Financial Times [2], le régime éthiopien a « exprimé un désir de réduire, voire de cesser, son engagement militaire en Somalie ». Le vassal des Etats-Unis a été défait tant militairement que politiquement, les Etats-Unis ont échoué à garantir un soutien de l’Union Africaine à son occupation par délégation.

Dans l’ensemble de l’Afrique, la Chine, l’Union européenne, le Japon, la Russie, ainsi (dans une moindre mesure) que l’Inde et le Brésil ont, tous, réalisé de grandes percées vers la certitude d’obtenir des joint ventures dans le pétrole, les matières premières, les marchés d’exportation et des investissements de grande ampleur (et de très long-terme, dans les infrastructures), tandis que les Etats-Unis soutenaient des commandos séparatistes au Soudan et finançaient le régime corrompu de Moubarak en Egypte, pour un montant annuel de plus d’un milliard de dollars. Non seulement l’empire américain a cédé le terrain, sur le plan économique, à ses concurrents mondiaux, mais il a subi une défaite militaro-diplomatique majeure en Somalie et il a très gravement affaibli son vassal éthiopien, tant politiquement que financièrement.

Asie du Sud

En Asie du Sud, le gouvernant fantoche stratégique des Etats-Unis, le dictateur pakistanais Musharraf a été contraint à la démission - et la coalition électorale, faible et divisée, qui le remplace, n’a pas été capable d’être au niveau de soutien militaire, diplomatique et informationnel qu’assurait Musharraf à la guerre américaine en Afghanistan. La frontière pakistano-afghane est virtuellement un territoire ouvert pour des attaques transfrontalières, pour le recrutement et pour la fourniture en armes des organisations résistantes afghanes. La perte de Musharraf par l’Empire américain ne fait que saper davantage les efforts des Etats-Unis visant à imposer leur avant-poste en Afghanistan.

A travers de fréquentes attaques terrestres et aériennes contre des régions pakistanaises frontalières de l’Afghanistan, la « coalition » Etats-Unis-Otan a multiplié, approfondi et rendue massive l’opposition civile, politique, et aussi l’opposition armée et ce, dans l’ensemble du pays. La soi-disant « élection » du vassal des Etats-Unis, ci-devant seigneur de la guerre et malfrat Asif Ali Zadari, au poste de président du Pakistan, ne contribuera pas, quoi qu’il en soit, à la récupération par les Etats-Unis de leur influence, au-delà d’une élite politique extrêmement restreinte et de cercles militaires extrêmement limités. La recherche et l’extension de leur impérialisme militaire de l’Afghanistan vers le Pakistan par les Etats-Unis les a conduits à une défaite politique d’autant plus sévère dans la population de la quasi-totalité de l’Asie du Sud.

Des généraux et des officiers supérieurs de l’Otan ont reconnu que les ainsi dits « Taliban » ont réorganisé et étendu leur influence dans l’ensemble de l’Afghanistan, qu’ils contrôlent désormais la plupart des voies d’accès aux grandes villes et qu’ils opèrent y compris autour et à l’intérieur de la capitale Kaboul. Des bombardements et des frappes par missiles américains répétés ont généré une opposition quasi-unanime envers le gouverneur de pacotille Karzai. Les engagements de l’un comme de l’autre candidat à la présidence américaine de renforcer considérablement les forces d’occupation en Afghanistan dès qu’il se sera installé aux manettes du pouvoir ne font que prolonger la guerre et approfondir l’affaiblissement de l’empire et économique, ainsi que ses fondations internes.

Le Caucase

La tentative de Washington d’étendre sa sphère d’influence au Caucase, au moyen d’un larcin territorial par son vassal géorgien autoritaire, le président Mikheil Saakashvili, a abouti, en lieu et place, à une profonde défaite des ambitions régionales de ce satrape régional. La sécession politique et l’intégration à la Russie de l’Ossétie du Sud et de l’Abkhazie représentent la fin de l’expansion illimitée des Etats-Unis et de l’Union européenne dans cette région du monde - ainsi qu’un recul considérable de ce terrain contesté. L’aventurisme dément de Saakashvili et la destruction de l’économie géorgienne qui en a découlé ont provoqué un désordre interne généralisé (en Géorgie).

Pire encore : la Géorgie, les Etats-Unis et ses clients est-européens en appellent à des « sanctions » contre la Russie, menacent de saper les pipelines stratégiques approvisionnant en énergie l’Europe de l’Ouest, et de mettre un terme à la collaboration de Moscou à la politique militaire des Etats-Unis en Afghanistan, en Iran et au Moyen-Orient. Si Washington poursuit son escalade dans ses menaces militaires et économiques contre la Russie, celle-ci pourrait fournir à l’Iran, à la Syrie et à d’autres ennemis des Etats-Unis de puissants missiles anti-aériens ultramodernes de moyenne portée. Tout aussi grave : la Russie peut très rapidement se débarrasser de 200 milliards de dollars qu’elle détient sous la forme de bons du Trésor américain, affaiblissant d’autant le dollar et initiant ainsi une débandade mondiale de cette devise.

En Géorgie, comme ailleurs, le meccano de l’empire économique américain accorde la priorité à des larcins faillis d’avance de territoires par un pays vassal de troisième catégorie, au détriment de relations stratégiques, économiques et militaires fructueuses avec la principale puissance énergétique mondiale, qui est aussi son collaborateur crucial dans ses opérations en cours au Moyen-Orient. Tandis que les relations économiques des Etats-Unis avec la Russie s’effritent, en conséquence de leur politique militaire agressive d’encerclement de Moscou - avec des bases militaires américaines en République tchèque, en Pologne, en Géorgie, en Bulgarie, en Roumanie - les bâtisseurs de l’Empire ouest-européen s’abstiennent de proférer des menaces militaires, s’en tenant à une rhétorique virile et au « dialogue », en vue de renforcer leurs relations énergétiques stratégiques avec la Russie…

Moyen-Orient / monde arabe

Au Moyen-Orient, le soutien inconditionnel des Etats-Unis à l’agression militaire israélienne au Liban, en Palestine et en Syrie, ainsi que le soutien américain apporté à des vassaux arabes faibles et ineptes, ont entraîné un déclin vertical de l’influence américaine. Au Liban, depuis la défaite de l’invasion israélienne de 2006, le Hezbollah gouverne littéralement la moitié Sud du pays - et il détient un véto sur le gouvernement libanais, ce qui revient à dire qu’il est en mesure de renverser le gouvernement libanais actuel, vassal des Américains.

A Gaza, les tentatives américaines et israéliennes de s’emparer du pouvoir et d’évincer le Hamas, via leur féal Abbas et leur marionnette Dahlan, ont été déjouées et elles ont fait long-feu, tandis que le mouvement indépendantiste nationaliste palestinien, sous la direction du Hamas, a renforcé son pouvoir.

La velléité de Washington de recouvrer son influence et d’améliorer son image de marque auprès des gouvernants conservateurs et modérés en assurant la « médiation » d’un accord de paix entre Israël et la ‘Palestine’, à Annapolis, en novembre 2007, a été totalement foutue en l’air par la répudiation effrontée et totale par Tel Aviv de toutes les conditions fondamentales mises en avant par l’administration Bush. Washington n’a strictement aucune influence sur l’expansion coloniale sioniste.

Au contraire, la politique moyen-orientale des Etats-Unis est totalement soumise à l’Etat israélien, à travers la Configuration du Pouvoir Sioniste et son contrôle sur le Congrès, sur le choix des candidats à la présidence, sur les mass médias et sur les principaux ‘think tanks’ de la propagande.

Les sionistes ont apporté la démonstration du pouvoir qui est le leur en édictant qui pouvait, et qui ne pouvait pas, ne serait-ce que prendre la parole à la Convention Nationale Démocrate, qui a connu - cerise sur le gâteau - une censure sans aucun précédent à l’encontre du président James Carter en raison de ses critiques humanitaires contre la politique israélienne à l’encontre des Palestiniens. L’usurpation siono-israélienne de la politique moyen-orientale des Etats-Unis a entraîné la perte d’investissements, de marchés, de profits potentiels et de partenariats stratégiques pour l’ensemble de l’industrie multinationale du pétrole et du gaz. La fusion politique entre militaristes impérialistes confrontés à la Russie, au prix de relations économiques stratégiques et la poursuite par les militaristes sionistes de l’hégémonie régionale israélienne ont conduit à de multiples aventures militaires pitoyables et, ce, au prix de pertes économiques mondiales terrifiantes.

Le monde occidental

La mise en œuvre de cette stratégie militariste, ainsi que le déclin relatif de l’hégémonie économique ont conduit à des défaites stratégiques et à des échecs, dans le monde occidental. A la fin 2001, Washington défia et menaça de représailles le président vénézuélien Chavez qui refusait de se soumettre à la guerre de Bush contre « la terreur ». Chavez, à l’époque, fit savoir à un représentant particulièrement hargneux des Etats-Unis (Grossman) ceci : « Nous ne combattrons pas la terreur au moyen de la terreur ! ». Moins de six mois après, en avril 2003, Washington soutenait un coup d’Etat militaire foireux contre Chavez et, entre décembre 2002 et février 2003, un lockout économique (qui fit un flop total), à l’initiative des patrons vénézuéliens.

L’échec de la stratégie militariste américaine a dévasté l’armée et les clients de Washington au sein de la classe dirigeante vénézuélienne, et il n’a fait que radicaliser davantage le gouvernement Chavez. En conséquence, le dirigeant du Venezuela a nationalisé le pétrole et le gaz, et il a développé des relations stratégiques avec des pays en compétition, voire totalement opposés à l’Empire américain, tels que Cuba, l’Iran, la Chine et la Russie. En Amérique latine, le Venezuela a conclu des accords économiques stratégiques avec l’Argentine, la Bolivie, l’Equateur, Cuba et le Nicaragua. Tandis que Washington déversait plus de 6 milliards de dollars d’aide militaire sur la Colombie, le Venezuela signait des investissements pétroliers et gaziers, ainsi que des accords commerciaux, avec la plupart des pays d’Amérique centrale et de la Caraïbe, remettant sérieusement en question l’influence de Washington dans ces régions du monde.

Des prix des matières premières exorbitants, des marchés asiatiques en plein boom, des taxes et des subventions américaines inacceptables ont conduit à une relative indépendance des régimes « capitalistes nationaux » de l’Amérique latine, qui ont adopté le « néolibéralisme » sans les contraintes du FMI et sans les diktats de Washington. Dans ces circonstances, les Etats-Unis ont perdu le plus gros de leur influence - mis à part les menaces militaires du régime colombien - dont ils auraient besoin pour inciter l’Amérique latine à isoler Chavez - voire même Cuba. C’est la stratégie militaire adoptée par Washington qui est la cause de son propre auto-isolement.

Les conséquences, outre-mer, de stratégies militaires condamnées à l’échec

L’isolement américain en Amérique latine ne saurait être solutionné, car la poursuite de l’Empire par Washington, via son agression militaire incessante - dans le reste du monde, et en particulier en Amérique latine - ne saurait rivaliser avec les profits, la richesse, les opportunités d’investir et de faire du commerce offerts aux classes dirigeantes d’Amérique latine par les nouveaux marchés en Russie, au Moyen-Orient, en Asie, ainsi que par le Venezuela, un pays riche, grâce à son pétrole.

La stratégie impériale militariste de Washington apparaît très clairement dans sa politique duplice : mise en priorité de la dépense de 6 milliards de dollars en aide à la répression colombienne, tout en sacrifiant pour plus de 10 milliards de dollars en échanges commerciaux, en investissements et profits avec le riche pays pétrolier qu’est le Venezuela. Washington a gaspillé plus de 500 milliards de dollars dans ses agressions contre l’Afghanistan et l’Irak ; des milliards de dollars sont consacrés aux préparatifs d’agression contre l’Iran ; plus de 3 milliards de dollars sont gaspillés annuellement au profit de la soldatesque israélienne ; le tout, sans cesser un seul instant de perdre des centaines de milliards de dollars de commerce et d’investissements croisés avec l’Amérique latine.

L’aspect le plus frappant de cette contradiction historique réside dans le fait que les dépenses militaires inhérentes à un meccano d’empire centré sur l’armée ont échoué, y compris dans leur objectif minimaliste d’acquisition de contrôle politique, d’avant-postes militaires et de matières premières stratégiques du point de vue militaire. Par contraste, les concurrents des Etats-Unis sur le marché globalisé se sont assurés de l’accès à (suivi du contrôle sur) les ressources naturelles stratégiques, et ils ont signés de lucratifs accords de coopération politique sans aucun engagement militaire coûteux…

Les conséquences intérieures d’un meccano d’empire à dominante militaire

Le coût du meccano d’empire sous la houlette siono-militaire, pour l’économie américaine, a été dévastateur : la compétitivité a décliné, l’inflation ronge le niveau de vie, l’emploi en contrepartie de salaires stables et décents est en train de disparaître, le chômage et les licenciements suivent une courbe asymptotique, le système financier est totalement déconnecté de l’économie réelle, et il est sur le point de s’effondrer, les saisies de maisons atteignent des niveaux catastrophiques et les contribuables sont saignés à blanc afin de combler la dette des spéculateurs gagée sur les prêts immobiliers, qui atteint le millier de milliards de dollars. Le malaise politique est général.

Au milieu d’une crise d’ampleur mondiale, un Etat policier a étendu son emprise : des milliers de travailleurs migrants, légaux et sans papiers ont été arrêtés sur leurs chantiers et dans leurs usines et détenus dans des camps militaires, loin de leurs enfants. Des associations musulmanes et des associations arabes font l’objet de perquisitions violentes ; elles sont poursuivies en justice sur le témoignage d’informateurs stipendiés, dont des « témoins » israéliens dûment cagoulés.

La police fédérale (étatique, sur l’ensemble des Etats-Unis) et la police locale (particulière à chaque Etat) pratiquent la « détention préventive » de militants et de journalistes avant les conventions en vue du choix des candidats à l’élection présidentielle, arrêtant des protestataires avant qu’ils aient pu exercer leurs droits constitutionnels et détruisant systématiquement les caméras, les appareils photo et les films réalisés par des citoyens essayant d’enregistrer les passages à tabac. L’impérialisme militaire failli amène lentement mais sûrement un Etat policier pléthorique - soutenu tant par les démocrates que par les républicains - afin de tenter de faire face à des crises économiques qui menacent les fondations politiques et sociales d’un empire aux pieds d’argile.


La crise économique, à quelques semaines des élections américaines, n’a pas abouti à l’émergence d’un candidat alternatif progressiste qui fût susceptible de s’appuyer sur les masses. Les compétiteurs, tant démocrate que républicain, promettent de prolonger et d’étendre les guerres impérialistes, et ils se soumettent à un dictat militaire israélo-sioniste sans aucun précédent, en ce qui concerne le contentieux avec l’Iran.

Les crises gigognes et les multiples défaites militaires n’ont entraîné aucune reprise en considération des engagements globaux des Etats-Unis, tant économiques que militaires. En lieu et place, nous assistons à une radicalisation de la droite américaine, qui cherche à aggraver les confrontations avec la Chine, avec la Russie et avec l’Iran. Les Etats-Unis entraînent derrière eux les régimes qui leur sont liges en Europe orientale, au Caucase et dans les pays baltes afin de contrer l’accent mis par l’Europe occidentale sur la dominante « économique » de son propre meccano d’empire.

La réalité, qui est celle d’un monde économique multipolaire, toutefois, sape les efforts américains visant à imposer une confrontation militaire bipolaire. La Chine détient 1,2 milliers de milliards de dollars de la dette extérieure américaine. L’Europe occidentale, de manière générale, dépend de la Russie pour plus d’un tiers de son énergie, pour ses foyers, ses bureaux et ses usines. L’Allemagne en dépend pour près de 60 % en matière de gaz naturel. Les économies asiatiques : Japon, Inde, Chine, Vietnam et Corée du Sud dépendent, toutes, du pétrole du Moyen-Orient et en aucun cas elles ne dépendent des projets guerriers des militaristes israélo-américains au Moyen-Orient… Le Brésil, la Russie, l’Inde, la Chine, l’Afrique du Sud, le Venezuela et l’Iran sont des pays absolument essentiels pour le fonctionnement de l’économie mondiale.

Au moins autant que l’axe Etats-Unis-Israël-Royaume-Uni est tout-à-fait incapable de maintenir son empire sur les bases de stratégies militaires foireuses à l’extérieur et d’un désastre économique accompagné d’un état policier chez eux.

The Financial Crisis on Wall Street and 9-11

Maurice Greenberg The criminal head of A.I.G.

Adding Insult to Injury: Hard-pressed American Taxpayers Forced to Bailout Zionist Gangsters Behind 9-11

By Christopher Bollyn,

The current financial crisis in the United States involves some of the very same Zionist criminals and entities that I pointed out in my recent chapter, "The Architecture of Terror: Mapping the Israeli Network Behind 9-11."

The collapse of their criminal scams on Wall Street could result in more information coming out about the Zionist gangsters behind 9-11. Such outrageous criminal scams cannot be kept hidden for long.

The government loan of $85 thousand millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars ($85 billion) to keep afloat Maurice Greenberg's criminal operation, American International Group (A.I.G.), brings into the spotlight one of the key individuals in the Zionist criminal network behind 9-11.
Maurice Greenberg The criminal head of A.I.G.

As I wrote in the chapter that was published in July 2008:

Rebuffed in 1987, the Mossad team of Malkin and Shalom didn't give up on Isser Harel's prophecy of 9-11, which meant getting the Port Authority security contract. They simply changed tack and decided to work in a less obvious manner, through dedicated and corrupt American Zionists like Jules Kroll and Maurice Greenberg. Shalom went to work for Kroll, according to the online 9/11 Encyclopedia entry for Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, the CEO of the American International Group (A.I.G.) insurance company…

In 1993, Maurice Greenberg became a partner and co-owner of Jules Kroll's company when A.I.G. bought 23 percent of Kroll. Greenberg is very close to Henry Kissinger, who became chairman of A.I.G.'s International Advisory Board in 1987. Greenberg was deeply involved in China in the 80s, where Henry Kissinger was one of his representatives, according to the 9-11 Encyclopedia. Through the China trade, Greenberg became close to Shaul Eisenberg, the leader of the Asian section of the Israeli intelligence service Mossad, and agent for the sales of sophisticated military equipment to the Chinese military, it reports. Eisenberg was also the owner of Atwell Security of Tel Aviv...Maurice Greenberg and Jules Kroll are connected to the key players of 9-11 in so many ways that their connections would fill a book. For the purpose of this chapter, however, there are a few key connections that need to be underlined:

1. Maurice Greenberg and Jules Kroll became partners in 1993, the same year Kroll Associates "was chosen over three other companies to advise the Port Authority on a redesign of its security procedures." "We have such confidence in them that I have followed every one of their recommendations," Stanley Brezenoff, the Port Authority executive director, told the New York Times in 1994.
2. Kroll controlled security at the World Trade Center complex in 2001 and was responsible for hiring John O'Neill, the former chief of counterterrorism for the FBI, who died on 9-11, reportedly his first day on the new job.
3. Greenberg's son, Jeffrey W. Greenberg, became CEO of Marsh & McLennan (MMC) in 1999 and chairman in 2000. The first plane of 9-11 flew directly into the secure computer room of Marsh (Kroll) USA, part of Greenberg's company. Mark Wood, an eyewitness, said: "It looked like a mid-sized executive jet and the way it turned suggested it was being aimed deliberately at a target."

There is much more information about Maurice Greenberg's ties to 9-11 in "The Architecture of Terror: Mapping the Israeli Network Behind 9-11."

The Syria-Israel peace gambit

By Ramzy Baroud
Online Journal Contributing Writer

Few would argue that the indirect Israel-Syria talks through Turkish mediation, which were first announced 21 May, were a sign of political maturity and readiness for peace. In fact, while the discussions seemed concerned with the occupied Syrian Golan Heights and Israel’s desire for security at its northern borders, the true objective behind the sudden engagement of Syria is largely concerned with Iran, Hizbullah and Hamas.

A precarious report published in The Jerusalem Post -- citing a news report in the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai on 2 September -- claimed that the Damascus-based Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal has left Syria and moved to Sudan. “Palestinian sources told the paper that Meshaal had come to an understanding with Damascus whereby the Hamas chief would agree to leave the state,” according to the report. It suggested that the indirect negotiations between Syria and Israel “may have played a part in the decision.” Hamas soon denied the report.

Whether the report is fully, partially or not at all accurate, the fact remains that Israel’s key objective in engaging Syria is to further isolate Hamas and to deny its leadership safe haven. Syria opened its doors to several Palestinian factions, who have operated politically with a degree of unison, following the September 1993 Oslo Accords. The relationship between Syria and Hamas in particular was often scrutinised as a Syrian bargaining chip in any future negotiations with Israel over the fate of the Golan. It is no secret that Israel would not transfer the Golan back to its rightful owner if Hamas and other Palestinian groups continue to use Damascus as their headquarters, a platform of political freedom and a degree of legitimacy.

But this is an issue that even Hamas itself doesn’t seem to be concerned with, at least at the moment, for it’s equally understood that Israel is not serious about its negotiations with Syria, and that the whole affair is a political manoeuvre aimed at disturbing the Syria-Iran alliance, cutting off the supposed Hizbullah weapon supply route, and further delegitimising Hamas, while propping up its Palestinian rivals. Israel is “engaging” Syria because it’s simply running out of options.

Consider A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm, a report prepared and signed by major Washington-based neoconservatives in 1996. It made the following recommendation to the Israeli government at the time: “Negotiations with repressive regimes like Syria’s require cautious realism. One cannot sensibly assume the other side’s good faith. It is dangerous for Israel to deal naïvely with a regime murderous of its own people, openly aggressive towards its neighbours, criminally involved with international drug traffickers and counterfeiters, and supportive of the most deadly terrorist organisations.”

The mindset behind the report had great sway over Israeli thinking, as was made clear in 2000 when then Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak froze Israeli-Syrian negotiations at a point that an agreement was reportedly at hand. The thrust of Israel’s policy towards Syria was predicated on the latter’s presence in Lebanon. Even after Hizbullah forced Israel out of Lebanon in the summer of 2000, Israel never disavowed its interests in that small country, and thoroughly focused on removing Syria, a task that was made possible with backing from Washington.

“Syria challenges Israel on Lebanese soil. An effective approach, and one with which Americans can sympathise, would be if Israel seized the strategic initiative along its northern borders by engaging Hizbullah, Syria and Iran, as the principal agents of aggression in Lebanon,” the Clean Break report recommended.

That was tried and failed miserably. Israel’s goals were trashed in its war on Lebanon in July-August 2006. The war delivered more than a military blow to Israel and a political blow to its benefactors in Washington. It empowered Hizbullah to emerge as Lebanon’s strongest party without any direct Syrian involvement.

Since then, Israel has resorted to a strategy of scare tactics against Syria and its Iranian ally. French President Nicolas Sarkozy used a recent four-way summit in Damascus to deliver an essentially Israeli message. He warned Iran of a “catastrophic” Israeli strike if it insists on pursuing its nuclear programme. Although the message was to Iran, the hope was for Syria to take notice as well.

But Sarkozy’s choice of Damascus to promote Israel’s ominous threat further highlights the relevance of Iran to his efforts, which would not have actualised without prior Israeli consent. Considering how quickly the Iraqi regime fell following the US invasion in 2003, and the succumbing of the Libyan government soon after, Syria is treading carefully, while trying to hold on to several winning cards, its strong relationship with Iran being one.

Although Syria is eager to reclaim the Israeli occupied Syrian Golan Heights, its leaders must also realise that the current Israeli leadership is in no position to negotiate withdrawal from what was illegally annexed by the Israeli Knesset in 1982. To override the strong opposition to withdrawal, the Israeli leadership must be indisputably interested in ending the occupation -- which it is not -- and strong enough to pull off such a major “concession,” which is also not the case.

Nonetheless, Syria carries on with its indirect talks with Israel, one round after the other, with much enthusiasm, coupled with talks about economic development, investment, etc.

It is clear that neither Israel nor Syria is anticipating a “breakthrough” anytime soon. For now, talking is an end in itself. Concurrently, Israel wishes to woo Syria to break with Hamas and other Palestinian groups, break with Iran and, at least, twist Hizbullah’s arm in Lebanon. Syria, on the other hand, knows well that indirect talks with Israel are an unmatched act of political validation in the West; enough to lessen US threats, win France’s friendship, and appear in a positive light internationally.

Both parties want to come across as accommodating, willing partners in peace and, at a future point, there might be a few overtures, the extent of which could be devastating to Palestinian factions in Damascus. Meshaal might not be in Sudan, but if he is, or will be soon, one cannot be entirely surprised.
