Saudi Monarchy Planning to execute the Jailed Top Shia Cleric in the coming Days

[The insane Saudi king is ready to Crucify this Shia Imam!!  (SEE: Death by Crucifixion’ for Ayatollah Al-Nimr, demands Saudi prosecutor).  If he does this, the intention is to light the “Shiite Crescent” on fire.  Maybe this is the backdoor approach to pushing war upon Iran that the Saudis and Israelis have planned.]

Saudi Monarchy Planning to execute the Jailed Top Shia Cleric in the coming Days

Saudi Protesters Demand Release of Shia Cleric Nemr Al NemirJNN 11 Nov 2013 TEHRAN – The Saudi authorities are planning to execute prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr in the coming days, a group calling itself the Al-Qatif News Network said on its Arabic webpage on Facebook. 


“We have no further details on the issue,” said the group on its webpage.


Sheikh Nimr was attacked, injured and arrested by Saudi security forces en route to his house in the Qatif region of Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province on July 8, 2012.


He was arrested over calls for the release of political prisoners


Tensions escalated in Qatif and Ihsaa following the arrest of Nimr. Thousands of people protested, calling for the overthrow of the regime and the release of the sheikh. Two people were killed and dozens were injured.


In late March 2013, an unnamed Saudi prosecutor reportedly demanded the death penalty for Nimr. The authority accused Nimr of ‘aiding terrorists’ and ‘instigating unrest,’ and called for the execution of the Shia cleric.


Since February 2011, demonstrators have held anti-regime protests on an almost regular basis in Saudi Arabia, mainly in Qatif and the town of Awamiyah in Eastern Province, primarily calling for the release of all political prisoners, freedom of expression and assembly, and an end to widespread discrimination.


Since November 2011, when Saudi security forces killed five protesters and injured many others in Eastern Province, the demonstrations have turned into protests against the Al Saud regime.


According to Human Rights Watch, the Riyadh regime “routinely represses expression critical of the government.”

Tripoli, Leb. and Tripoli Lib. Both Reeling from Sunni Militias

Clashes with gunmen breach precarious security plan for Tripoli

TRIPOLI, Lebanon: Clashes between members of the Internal Security Forces and gunmen in Tripoli late Saturday raised fears in the northern city particularly that the fighting came just hours after the Interior Ministry announced the implementation of the second part of its security plan.

Although there were no reports of casualties, the clashes between the ISF and gunmen from a brigade headed by Abu Horeyra resulted in heavy damage in several neighborhoods.

Glass windows of a number of stores and houses were shattered, contents were destroyed and electricity cables were broken in neighborhoods where the heavy fighting took place including the Nahaseen Market, the outskirts of al-Tall neighborhood and the area of the old Serail.

The ISF gradually cordoned off these areas in order to isolate the gunmen.

The armed individuals withdrew from the streets two hours later after police launched contacts with local figures who ordered the gunmen to retreat and put an end to sniper fire.

Earlier Saturday, shooting was heard in Al-Qibbeh, al-Baqar and Zahireyeh neighborhoods in the city while hand grenades exploded in Zahireyeh and Meyten.

The violence came on the same day caretaker Interior Minister Marwan Charbel headed to the northern city to announce the implementation of the second phase of the government’s security plan to restore calm and stability in Tripoli.

In a news conference to launch the second part of the new security measures, Charbel said the ISF was the security agency responsible for carrying out the plan with the backing of the Lebanese Army.

He said security forces were deployed in areas of tension particularly in the rival neighborhoods of Sunni majority Bab al-Tabbaneh and the Alawite-dominant Jabal Mohsen whose residents have engaged in 17 rounds of deadly clashes since the uprising in Syria began in 2011.

The Army was able to contain last month’s violence which broke out days after the announcement of the security plan, killing at least 16 people and wounding over 90.

Charbel also met with heads of local armed groups in Tripoli, the so-called ‘axis leaders,’ as well as Sheikh Nabil Rhayyem and Salafist Sheikh Salem al-Rafei.

The meeting, held at the governor of north Lebanon’s office, culminated in an agreement on the formation of a committee made up of four security ad civilian personnel in order to follow up and eliminate obstacles in the face of the implementation of security measures in the northern city, one of the attendants of the meeting told Annahar newspaper.

The ‘axis leaders’ also demanded that security forces and the judiciary complete their investigation into the Aug. 23 bombings of two mosques in Tripoli.

Rumours abound in Tripoli

By Libya Herald staff.

Tripoli, 18 November 2013:

Denials have been as much the news as events today in unsettled Tripoli as the lack of official information about what is happening fuels the rumour mill.

This morning the head of Tripoli Local Council, Sadat Elbadri, denied reports on Facebook that he had been assassinated. Elbadri’s popularity is rising in Tripoli. It was he who called on demonstrators to go to the capital’s Gharghour district on Friday and make the Misrata forces there leave. Despite the carnage that resulted when the demonstrators were fired on, he is being seen as the only man so far who has successfully stood up to the militias. The departure of the forces was announced last night.

Later during the day, media reports that the headquarters of the Chief of Staff on Tripoli’s Airport Road had been stormed during the morning by armed groups were dismissed as nonsense by media staff there.

“It’s just a rumour. The situation is totally quiet”, a spokesman insisted, offering to provide photos of the base taken today to the Libya Herald to prove his claim.  Other reports that there had been fighting inside the headquarters between different groups were also untrue, he said.

Is Using the World’s Most Powerful Military Force To Punish Civilian Populations, “War” Or State Terrorism?


The Powers That Be decided to trash this post, since someone deleted all of the commentary and image previously posted here.  Normally I copy my posts before hitting the post button….Screwed-up here.  I will try to recapture that which was lost.

[The following is a welcome admission by the Establishment press that our wars have been unmitigated disasters, but it is also very deceptive, falling far short of acceptable standards of journalistic integrity.  Despite the long-overdue admission that are wars have been failed efforts, this article is what is known as “limited hangout” propaganda, telling partial truths as a means for concealing more revelatory damning truths.  In this case, the writer wants his readers to begin to see our wars as huge “mistakes,” human-error caused disasters, rather than criminal wars of aggression.   The cold hard truth is that all of our wars have been resounding successes, judging by Pentagon/CIA standards.  The disastrous end-products of these wars was the intended result for all of them, destroying the Muslim countries that refused to follow American dictation.  We fully intended for the Iraqis, the Afghans, the Pakistanis, Yemenis, Syrians, Libyans and all of the rest of America’s perceived “enemies,” to experience unimaginable human suffering on a scale far greater than that which has been experienced so far.  In addition to all of this, the Imperial plan was to take advantage of the rising chorus of humanity, urging that we remedy all of this misery, as an excuse for inflicting even greater suffering and indignation on these populations under the guise of “humanitarian relief.”]    


“US ‘humanitarian interventionism’ is the official cover story for the planned destruction of governments and the sustained, relentless punishment of the people who supported those governments…plain and simple.

American foreign policy under Bush and Obama has been a concentrated effort to inflict maximum suffering upon civilian populations, under the cover of pretending to “help” them. America’s foreign policy is criminal…far worse than the alleged ‘crimes against humanity’ which Syria allegedly committed. The chaotic deadly conditions left in the wakes of these criminal wars have affected all of humanity and pushed civilization to the brink of complete collapse. This,makes America’s Imperial wars, by definition, ‘crimes against humanity.'”


The bloody disaster of Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan is laid bare


Bombs and militia violence make clear the folly of Britain’s wars – the removal of law and order from a nation is devastating

Demonstrators Clash With Militiamen In Tripoli

Forty-three people died on Friday in clashes between militias in Libya, as did 22 on Sunday from bombs in Iraq. In Helmand, a return of the Taliban to power is now confidently expected. Why should we care? Why should it feature on our news?

The answer is that we helped to bring it about. Britain’s three foreign wars in the past decade were uninvited military interventions to topple installed governments. All have ended in disaster.

In each case – Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan – it was easy to see evil in the prevailing regime. These are bad guys that we need to go after, said the Americans. Yet the removal of law and order from a nation is devastating, however cruel that order may have been. Iraqis today repeat that, whatever the ills of Saddam Hussein, under his rule most ordinary citizens and their families could walk the streets at night without fear of murder or kidnap. Religious differences were tolerated. Iraq should have been an oil-rich modern state. Even the Kurds, scourged by Saddam in the past, enjoyed autonomy and relative peace.

In each of these cases Britain and its allies, chiefly America, intervened to overthrow the army, disband government, dismantle the judiciary and leave militias to run riot. Little or no attempt was made to replace anarchy with a new order. “Nation building” was a fiasco. The British bombs that flattened government buildings in Kabul, Baghdad and Tripoli did not replace them, or those who worked in them. Those who dropped them congratulated themselves on their work and went home.

It is hard to exaggerate the misery and chaos created by so-called “liberal interventionism”. It is hard to think of a more immoral foreign policy, roaming the (chiefly Muslim) world, killing people and sowing anarchy. That is why the blood-stained consequence should be splashed across headlines. Those who seek political kudos by visiting violence on foreign peoples should never be allowed to forget their deeds.

Israel Is the Only Nation To See Peace As An “Existential Threat”

[It is Jews like Benjamin Netanyahu who confirm to the world that there really are many Jewish intellectuals who believe that fomenting wars in other countries is a legitimate survival strategy.  Anyone who dares, or has dared to point-out this cold hard fact has been immediately branded as “anti-Semitic.”  Brand away.  I have been in this struggle far too long to care about such infantile nonsense as name-calling anymore.  As long as there is an established “nation” with a single-minded foreign policy of stirring-up trouble and instigating war for its neighbors, then there will be NO PEACE in the Middle East.  Something has to change.  I prefer the path to Peace which puts and end to international trouble-making and the use of any kind of political terrorism by any nation.  If Israel or any other nation cannot exist except by creating strife in other nations, then that nation will either have to change, or cease to exist.

It’s your choice to make, Netanyahu, but consider this…if the Nations of the world get their heads together and determine that there will be WORLD PEACE, then no shitty little pile of sand calling itself “Israel” will stand in the way of a planet united on that one goal.  Zionists and other Imperialists must learn a quick lesson about the mental state of most of the human race…The People are sick and tired of pointless, endless war.  We are “mad as hell and we aren’t going to take anymore.”  Zbigniew Brzezinski has been speaking freely about this rapidly building phenomenon, the human race becoming politically aware of their power.  There is no longer a static status quo.  Things are changing fast and will soon be beyond their meager abilities to control us.  I guess  that at that time, the proper non-anti-Semitic response would be to feel sorry for the Jews and the collapse of their grand social experiment, forgetting about all the damage that they have done and the lives wasted by the conspiracy to bring it all about.  But I prefer a quicker solution…one which lays everybody’s cards on the table, exposing all of those “Jokers” who today are world-class state sponsors of terrorism, forcing the players to pay-up and to shut-up.

But for now, I will be happy to see what happens when the arrogance and the obstinacy of the evil alliance of the Wahhabi Saudis and the Zionist Israelis try to stop the international tsunami for Peace that is now building-up within the war-weary hearts of most of the human race.]


Peace threatens Israeli agendas, says Fetzer


Press TV has conducted an interview with James Fetzer, professor at the University of Minnesota from Madison, to further discuss the latest developments regarding Iran’s peaceful nuclear energy program.

Below you are provided with a rough transcription of the interview.

Press TV: James Fetzer, I would like to get your reaction to one of the things that John Kerry has said and he said that aside from sanctions probably having a negative effect with the Iranians to pull out of any talks that it is either a deal or war.

When he makes the statement “war” what does he mean? From the US side or from the Israeli side?

Fetzer: Well, that is a completely outrageous statement for John Kerry to make. I am shocked by that. I mean that the United Nations’ charter specifies all diplomatic relationships…, opportunities must be fully exploited before there is any consideration of military action and that would only be permissible under two conditions, namely: If Iran posed an imminent threat to the United States, which is obviously not the case; or if it had the approval of the Security Council which of course would never happen.

So it is completely and utterly irresponsible for John Kerry to be making such a remark.

Press TV: And during his trip, we know that he was in Israel, he went to the United Arab Emirates and of course he is trying to appease his allies regarding this possible deal with Iran and we can see the positive motions that the US president Barack Obama has made regarding the Congress not to impose more sanctions.

I mean do you think that there is sincerity in not only Kerry but President Obama to have this, at least interim deal signed and how probable do you think that it is?

Fetzer: Well, it is very interesting because there are some signs that Obama, actually, is willing to go against the Israeli lobby and negotiate a diplomatic agreement with Iran.

There should be no interference with Iran’s right to develop nuclear energy. That appears to be an effort by the American nuclear energy industry to circumvent competition because Iran can provide nuclear fuel rods to the third-world countries at less expense than can the American and so they do not like the competition but the fact is that France appears to be the stumbling block and it appears to be because it has a major arms deal with Saudi Arabia and another with Israel.

I am heartened that Obama made those remarks to oppose further sanctions on Iran but the sanctions were never deserved in the first place.

Iran has no nuclear weapons program, even our own intelligence agencies in 2007 and again in 2011 confirmed that Iran was not pursuing a nuclear weapons program.

I believe that it has to do with Iran having abandoned the petrodollar, which of course was also true of Iraq, also true of Libya and we know what happened there and of course with Israel’s determination to achieve domination over the Middle East without any opposition whatsoever from a major power, if in fact there is a diplomatic resolution of this issue then Israel will lose any possible semblance of justification of attacking Iran; even the former of highest levels intelligence service chiefs for Israel have made that observation which is why Netanyahu is so desperate to provoke something here and to not allow, to undermine a diplomatic initiatives that he finds so threatening to his agenda for the Middle East.
